Esotericism Part 4 Sec 05




gurdjieffA side step: As seen from a different perspective: A {working?} example: "G. said at that time that exercises of moving according to the enneagram would occupy an important place in his ballet the 'Struggle of the Magicians'. And he said also that, without taking part in these exercises, without occupying some kind of place in them, it was almost impossible to understand the enneagram. 'Is it possible to experience {understand?} the enneagram by movement,' someone asked. 'The rhythm itself of these movements would suggest the necessary ideas and maintain the necessary tension; without them it is not possible to feel {understand? i.e.,from a subconscious {start?} point of view} what is important', he said. There was yet another drawing of the enneagram which was made under his direction in Constantinople in the year 1920. In this drawing inside the enneagram were shown the four beasts of the Apocalypse - the bull, lion, man and eagle - and with them a dove. These addition symbols were connected with 'centers'. In connection with talks about the meaning of the enneagram as a universal symbol G. again spoke of the existence of a universal ''philosophical'' language. 'Men have tried for a long time to invent a universal language', he said. 'And in this instance as in many others, they seek something which has long since been found and try to think of and invent something which has been known and in existence a long time..." ['In Search of the Miraculous']. Try ''centers'' and/or ''mandala/s'' and/or ''nine'' for a different take on the same theme.

'The Whirling Dervishes'. Enlarged elsewhere.

Understand those keys to define that ''philosophical language'' - from the dawn of human {thought?} kind.


All in relation to that universal ''bit''. As a means...?

From a different perspective: "We are like a company of singing dancers who may turn their gaze upward and away {H/V?} - notwithstanding they have the 'choir master' for center; but when they are turned towards him {off center?} then they 'sing' true and are truly centred upon 'him'. Even so we encircle {ecliptic?} the Supreme always; but our eyes are not at all times fixed upon the center. Yet in the vision thereof lie our attainment and our response and the end of all discord: God in his dancers and 'god' the true center of the dance." [Page 143 'The Western Way'. Vol 2].

A side step: In the Hebrew culture Tiphareth represents the heart with an Oak Tree.

"Some say it could be the largest virgin UNpollarded Oak in the world - called Majesty." [Britain's Ancient Tracks' / series 3]. Try ''mustard'' {seed?}.

A mind set ?

A {working?} example: "Dragon Lord!'' he spoke, "The 'Sun' has risen in the West...and I am here! And he sang this Englyn: Oak that grows between two banks {'pillars'?} - darkened is the sky and hill. Shall it not be told by his 'wounds' {spear link?} - that this is Lleu? Oak that grows in upland ground, is it not wetted by the rain? Has it not been drenched by 'nine' score tempests? It bears in its branches Lleu Llaw Gyffes! Oak that grows beneath the steep, stately and majestic is its ASPECT! Shall I not speak the truth that Lleu has come into your midst?" [Page 250 / Douglas Monroe. Emphasis, this readers].

And/or: ''Too much sun makes a desert."

REFRESHER: "Sirius is sometimes called the 'Sun behind the sun', indicating that while the star we call the Sun is related to our physical center of Self in our Solar Plexus and the expression of our Selves within the physical earth, Sirius represents a more hidden center { Egyptian example = 'Amun'?}."

Continued: [3]. Hence the link to the bible story...Moses= ‘Prince of Egypt’, i.e., ’dark’ land, seeking out...together with all those aspects of his 'lower' self...[ i.e., ‘Children’ of Israel ]...his higher self, [ 'Yahweh', i.e., ’Light', [by way of 'Adonai', i.e.,'Lord']. Higher over lower. ''Light'' over ''darkness'' the ‘'wilderness’'. Finally to ‘meet’ up with his higher self ‘. On top of’ mount Sinai. Or more to the point. The ‘higher self’ coming to terms with its ‘lower self’, before ‘moving on’. Indicative of.

'The Waste Land' / T. S. Eliot.

'light oxen': "I bring up an individual type as a point of departure to talk about {'harbour'?}. The one that is strongest will pull you first....." [Page 4 'Stopping and Seeing' / T. Cleary].

As a working {hypothetical?} example: ''In closing the introduction of this study of zodiacal signs we should ask the reader to remember that these studies will consider the zodiac as a fundamental factor in astrological interpretation; as an actual 'field' {i.e., EGYPTIAN equivalent = ''running the fields''?} of structuring energies surrounding and pervading the earth and all its inhabitants. We shall see zodiacal signs as definite types of energies {as an example}...the Sun, when passing through a zodiacal 'sign', acts in a way, any other planet acts. It is merely the central planet, the most powerful agent acting upon the electromagnetic field of the Earth. Thus when the sun is at 'birth' in {say, Taurus}, the organic functions represented in any organism by Taurus can be considered as those receiving the largest share of vital energy and commanding the native's strongest powers of attention. The 'Taurus' function is shown to be the central function of the organism - and NOTHING more.'' [Page 15 'The Zodiac and the Universal Matrix' / Dane Rudhyar].

And/or: ''....On this battlefield {'struggle' / ''duality'' link} previously unacknowledged parts of oneself demand to be recognised - demand 'a place in the sun'....." [Page 15 'The Lover and the Serpent' / Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee].

All as a means....?

''....But once he realizes that he himself has a shadow, that is enemy is his own heart, then the conflict begins and one becomes two. An awareness {'sunshine'?} of the opposites in ones own nature at first brings conflict....experiences an inner battle as opposing aspects of oneself fight it out. On this battlefield....." [Same book].

A {working?} example i.e.,something to be 'figured' out - from a different perspective: "Traditionally Canis Major has been seen as a dog, but Homer uses the same stars to give TWO different manifestations of the usual configuration of the stars of Canis Major. When Achilles is seen as the entire constellation in human form, the brighter stars are highlighted by descriptions of his HEART {i.e., Sirius, the brightest star}, his chest, liver, forearm, hands, knees, and feet to give the impression of a man. Stars defining his shield, helmet, and sword, add the accoutrements of WAR to this outline {animate/inanimate?}. In Book 18, Achilles mother, Thetis, suggests yet another image of the significantly brighter stars of the constellation when she describes her son as a young sapling who will grow into a mighty warrior...This variant image of Achilles as a young tree helps fix the arrangement of Canis Major standing on its 'tail'...Homer also uses Canis Major to reiterate his idea of the celestial sphere when in Book 23 of the Iliad, Achilles tosses this way and that during a restless sleep." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Tail end of something begins...?

''Heart'' and ''war'' in relation to ''18'' {''sapling'' therefore 'tree'} and ''23'' {''restless'' therefore 'one way or the other'}. Anything?

Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Something extra: Something learned?....

April Ashley - the Pathfinder.

''Bears were venerated by our ancients as being the strongest animal to roam the land.'' And/or: ''Hyades, in Greek mythology, daughters of the Titan Atlas and the Oceanid Aethra, the five (or more) sisters of the Pleiades who nursed the infant wine god, Dionysus, and as a reward were made the five stars in the head of the constellation Taurus, the bull....held by the ancients to indicate rainy weather when they rise with the sun.''

In Greek mythology, the Hyades were the five daughters of Atlas and half-sisters to the Pleiades. After the death of their brother, Hyas, the weeping sisters were transformed into a cluster of stars that was afterwards associated with rain.
As a naked-eye object, the Hyades cluster has been known since prehistoric times. It is mentioned by numerous Classical authors from Homer to Ovid.[13] In Book 18 of the Iliad the stars of the Hyades appear along with the Pleiades, Ursa Major, and Orion on the shield that the god Hephaistos made for Achilles.[14]
In England the cluster was known as the "April Rainers" from an association with April showers, as recorded in the folk song "Green Grow the Rushes, O".

Gregor Clegane or Bronn? {Game of Thrones}.

''When i was a kid and i got scared; the rain man would come to see me.'' [Tom Cruise / 'Rain Man' / 1988].

'The Talking Tree' / W. Gray.

"I {Thetis} bore him fair and strong, hero among hero's and he shot up as a sapling; I tended him as a plant in a goodly garden' - This variant image of Achilles as a young tree helps fix the arrangement of Canis Major standing on its tail.." ['Homer Secret Iliad'].

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

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


Cedar or Sycamore as a means...?

Made from shale. Question: What is shale made from?

"Every animal endowed with sight and able to stand above the ground, or on an eminence, is most likely aware of what we call the horizon...The experience of all round boundaries {'Saturn' link? and/or ''running the fields''?} is thus a universal factor to sentient beings. But it is reserved for the human species to experience in the fullest sense what the meridian means - for by standing erect the human 'spine' {Abydos?} extends the radius of the globe on the surface of which we walk freely {'upright'?}. Strictly speaking the meridian is the circle of longitude which passes through the point overhead. It is a celestial, or a terrestrial, circle. However, in these studies, wherever we have spoken of the meridian, we have considered it in projection as a line {'line of sight'?} - more precisely, as the diameter of the meridian circle which links the point overhead {zenith} and the point underfoot {nadir}. The diameter passes through the center of the earth, representing therefore at every point on the surface of the globe, the line along which gravity operates. As man stands erect, his spine follows more or less this line of gravity - the plumb line - which, if prolonged downward, reaches the earth's center, and, upward, meets the vault of the sky at the zenith. The erect spine is one of the basic characteristics of humanity {'natural' link?}. It is the mark of the human ego, the signature of the human consciousness. What makes a consciousness ''human'' is not only the development of the mental faculties {related to the development of the hand and brain}, but also the power to stand as an independent center of being - an ego. The human person is an ego because he is a direct projection of the center of the earth - a radial expression of that center. He is a tree which has become free to orientate itself at will, free to make its own plumb line connection with the earth center and to select its own zenith, its own longitude and latitude...Because we stand erect {Osiris?} we are longer entirely subservient to the collective energies which move along the horizontal line... " [From the chapter 'The Tenth House' within the book 'The twelve Astrological Houses' by Dane Rudhyar].

Purposely deposited into a lake of 'fresh' water. Wooden objects and platforms made of 'tree' parts also found within same. Geometrical 'lines' together with the 'hole'. Triangular in shape but now smoothed {'subtle'?} with the effects of water. 'HUNG' around the neck {i.e., top of the 'spine'}. Any 'plant' specimens found? Nazca LINES to ''SEE'' it from a different perspective. In a different FORM!

By contrast, one of the most unusual items from Star Carr is a small shale pendant etched with a series of parallel lines and smaller markings drawn at right angles (pictured – see also CA 314). While these engravings are diffi cult to see with the naked eye, experimental archaeology suggests that when freshly cut they would have been vibrantly white against the darker background, and similar artefacts are known from southern Scandinavia. Possible interpretations of the markings are numerous – stars, a map, a bird, the lines on the palm of the hand, a river with channels diverting water, a tree, a leaf, the Star Carr platforms, or a form of writing working in a similar way to the medieval Irish script Ogham – but, whatever its purpose, the pendant seems to have been deliberately placed in the lake, hinting at practices whose meaning has long faded from memory.''

Put those keys together {i.e.,as one example - what 'constellation' represents the 'tenth' house?} - to get closer to defining Homer's secret Iliad - AND/OR - therefore the subject as a whole.

Refresher: ''Horus is the 'STAR' at the head of the sky''.

Spine of Osiris?

The 'tail' end of something begins the process of...

Plaster = clay?

A working example: {in its abstract, alchemical form}: ''A 'decapitation' signifies the obtaining of the arcane substance {Bran the Blessed?} epithet being the ''Meridian of the Sun''....This striking off of the golden head, in alchemy is synonymous with 'gold'. Gold as Michael Maier says, is the circulatory work of the sun. Shining CLAY moulded into the most beauteous substance, wherein the solar {'Aten'?} rays are gathered together and shine forth...Others say 'gathered' in quicksilver {'Mercury'?}...from the 'invisible rays' of heaven.'' [Page 72 'Alchemical Studies' / C. G. Jung].

Side step: Dog {in reverse?} = god. Analogy? Gog. And/or Magog = gog-AM in relation to: "Latin is often without the inclusion of the verb ''to be,'' so that this sentence is actually saying: ''and in Arcadia, i am.'' []. Enlarged elsewhere.

'gog' link to ''red cave''?


"The first of the TWO names occurs in the book of Ezekiel, where Gog is an individual {rural? and/or 'spirit'} and Magog is his land {'city'? and/or 'soul'}; in Genesis 10, Magog is a person, son of Japheth son of Noah, but NO Gog is mentioned. In Revelation, Gog and Magog together are the 'hostile' nations of the world." [Wiki/'Magog'].

Question. Rural/city in relation to a 'struggle' as a means...?

Something extra?: ''Anglesey is also home to the village with the longest name in Europe - LlanfairpwllgwyGOGerychwyrndrobwilliantysilioGOGOGoch....'' ['Readers Dijest' / April 2021].

Translates as: ''The church of St. Mary, of the pool {hollow?} of the white hazels, near a rapid whirlpool and the church of St. Tisilio near the red cave.'' ['Mystic Britain: Isle of Druids'].

The above 'name' {New one?} a combination of three local hamlet names.

'T'aormina to enlarge.

Noble lasses? Stretched neck?

Side note: ''If you head forwards toward the first tower, this is called Anne Boleyn's Gateway. It functions as the entrance to King Henry VIII's apartments and leads to Clock Court where you can see the Astronomical Clock above the arch.''

'' A stroll through the 16th-century section of Hampton Court Palace offers an interesting “overlook” at Henry VIII’s famous residence, which has become known as Anne Boleyn’s Gateway. Built within the loop/bend {'semicircle'} of a river.'' N.B. Identified with the falcon.

Continued: ''Because Welsh is a Celtic language like Gaelic in Ireland or Breton in Brittany - they were all dominated by the Druids according to Caesar.'' [same].

"Breton (/ˈbrɛtən/ BRET-ənFrench: [bʁətɔ̃]endonymbrezhoneg [bʁeˈzɔ̃ːnɛk] [5] or [brəhɔ̃ˈnek] in Morbihan) is a Southwestern Brittonic language of the Celtic language group spoken in Brittany, part of modern-day France. It is the only Celtic language still widely in use on the European mainland, albeit as a member of the insular branch instead of the continental grouping.[6]

"Vision after the Sermon (Jacob Wrestling with the Angel) is an oil painting by French artist Paul Gauguin, completed in 1888. It is now in the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh. It depicts a scene from the Bible in which Jacob wrestles an angel. It depicts this indirectly, through a vision that the women depicted see after a sermon in church. It was painted in Pont-Aven, Brittany, France." N.B. Older women in background with grimace contours of mouth {downward}, as opposed to the {content?} expression of the younger ones {upward}. Bitter/sweet. Old/young. Crone/Virgin. Waxing/Waning   as a means.... Question. Opposite side of a tree? + Cow approaching from west {Mona?} = emotions/etheric link? Question 2. In relation to whom?

Breton was brought from Great Britain to Armorica (the ancient name for the coastal region that includes the Brittany peninsula) by migrating Britons during the Early Middle Ages, making it an Insular Celtic language. Breton is most closely related to Cornish, another Southwestern Brittonic language.[7] Welsh and the extinct Cumbric, both Western Brittonic languages, are more distantly related, and the Goidelic languages (IrishManxScottish Gaelic) have a slight connection due to both of their origins being from Insular Celtic.

Having declined from more than one million speakers around 1950 to about 200,000 in the first decade of the 21st century, Breton is classified as "severely endangered" by the UNESCO Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger.....Breton is spoken in Lower Brittany (BretonBreizh-Izel), roughly to the west of a line linking Plouha (west of Saint-Brieuc) and La Roche-Bernard (east of Vannes). It comes from a Brittonic language community that once extended from Great Britain to Armorica (present-day Brittany) and had even established a toehold in Galicia (in present-day Spain). Old Breton is attested from the 9th century.[8] It was the language of the upper classes until the 12th century, after which it became the language of commoners in Lower Brittany. The nobility, followed by the bourgeoisie, adopted French."

Druid/Mona links?

''Meaning: noble or aristocratic. Mona is a girl's name of Italian origin. This name translates to “noble” and “aristocratic.” It is thought to be derived from the name Madonna, which is famously associated with the Virgin Mary in Christian theology.''

''Regardless of the language, Lisa's meaning is spiritual; the name is said to mean "oath from God," "devoted to God," or "my God is bountiful." The Hebrew meaning is derived from the name Elisheba, which also references the lily flower.''


Greek city states built 'treasuries' along the Sacred Way {to Delphi}. The ''fanciest'' treasury was built by one of the smallest {'child' link} Greek states - Sifnos. It had an elaborate frieze that ran around its outside like a ribbon {'girdle' link}. At its heart two lions pulling a chariot = ''The struggle between the gods and the giants to rule the world." ['Treasures of Ancient Greece: The Age of Hero's' / Alastair Sooke. BBC 4]. The narrator sums it all up within such phrases as ''political power'' for the sake of ''political competition'' - ''All of it communicated by art''. Understand those 'keys' to define something 'inner''.

The Tree of life tile mural is a reproduction of a mosaic floor in Jericho, dating from the 6th century. {Jerusalem Pottery}. Odysseus to enlarge.

"We are shown that we aught to control our forces as the Gnosis figure governs the 'lion' from a 'higher' level- [in relation to the 'Strength' card of the Tarot]. If we learn to hold our ''Lions mouth'' with the ''grip of advantage'' [link to 'grasp' symbolism], we may also feed or starve our forces, prevent them from injuring ourselves or anyone else, examine their ''teeth'', or the effectiveness of their ''bite'', work silently or with a roar, and in fact do 'What We Will' with our Lions share of 'strength'; always providing we do this with a firm and kindly knowledge in the name of beauty and harmony. This is the real spiritual Strength, which must never be confused with violence of any description." [Extract taken from the 'Talking Tree' by W. Gray]. Try ''lions paw'' to understand its relevance to other 'doctrines' [or cultures]. Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

''Teeth'' as seen on a {lion?} figure at Gobekli-tepe. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

A working example: The brooch of Odysseus shows a lion or wolf with the head of a deer in its mouth. Question. Killing or 'wrestling'?

''Known formally by his royal name, K'inich Yax K'uk Mo, he reigned for eleven years. His name is translated {among others}...'Sun in the Mouth of the Quetzal Bird'. The many interpretations of his name are reflected in the various theories regarding his origins." ['uk_mo].

[3]. REFRESHER: Hence the link to the bible story...Moses= ‘Prince of Egypt’, i.e., ’dark’ land, seeking out...together with all those aspects of his 'lower' self...[ i.e., ‘Children’ of Israel ]...his higher self, [ 'Yahweh', i.e., ’Light', [by way of 'Adonai', i.e., 'Lord']. Higher over lower. ''Light'' over ''darkness'' the ‘'wilderness’'. Finally to ‘meet’ up with his higher self ‘. On top of’ mount Sinai. Or more to the point. The ‘higher self’ coming to terms with its ‘lower self’, before ‘moving on’. Indicative of.

"Daniel replies that his God had sent an angel to close the jaws of the lions, "because I was found blameless before him". And/or: "When the Jews were again being held in captivity, this time in Babylon, the prophet Daniel was thrown into a den of lions and the cave blocked shut for the night. In the morning Daniel was unharmed, because, he said, an angel had stopped the lions mouths." [Page 150 'The Sacred History' / J. Black]. 'Lion couchant'? Gebel Barkal to enlarge. Question. What does that say for the "collective mindset" PRIOR to captivity?

"Let us take the movement of the children of Israel out of Egypt and their journey towards the promised land, not literally but as a parable having a psychological significance quite apart from any historical significance. Let us take it in other words as referring to man moving away from some power signified by 'Pharaoh' and 'Egypt', and journeying towards a new state of himself. All Esoteric teaching concerns a 'lower' and a 'higher' level, and the essence of esotericism consists in the fact that man is capable of undergoing a transformation and attaining a new level of himself." [Extract from Part two 'The Mark' by Maurice Nicoll]. Try ''tree''.

N.B. Mount Sinai - representing the middle [key] of that journey.

Understanding that universal framework defines the above. The real question however is why go to all this effort. Nothing more than to verify a subject? Generation by generation?

"An interesting sidelight is thrown on the concept of the Moon as the governor of men, when we remember that the last Hebrew migration was from Sinim [that is, from the Land of the Moon] and that Sinai, the mount on which Moses received the Tablets of the Law , is the Mountain of the Moon." [Chapter 12, 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Hence the link to the real meaning; and intention; of the name Moses....out of water, 'drawn from water'. See anything?

Primordial mound link? The beginning of something? Recall Part 1.

''She who loves silence'' Coincidence or a …..?

"And indeed, have we sent forth Moses with our messages: "Lead your people out of the depths of darkness into the light, and remind them of the days of god". Truly, in this there are messages for those who are firmly patient and constant". [Quran 14:5].

''Patience is the mother of will. If you have no mother, how can you be born?" Gurdjieff.

Analogy: "A true 'magician' is brought forth as such from his mothers womb. Others who assume the function will be unhappy..." Grimoir Verum, 14th Century. [Taken from the chapter entitled 'A Boy to Magic Born' from the book by Douglas Monroe].

And/or: ''There were Giants...' is a story which is location specific {in this case below Tintagel S/W England}. It focuses upon one geographic location, and only ONE: The Cave. CAVES were primeval Celtic symbols of the 'womb and the tomb'..." Same book.

Question. Shadow/anima - which and why?

And/or: S/W = 'Tomb'? S/E = 'Womb'?

Try ''Chacoan'' to see something else from a S/W perspective. Part 3.

Question. Any ''caves'' within that location?

A side step: "I, King, have dealt with the gods for three generations of men, and i know that they dazzle our eyes and flow in and out of one another like eddies on a river, and nothing that is said clearly can be said truly about them." [From 'Till We Have Faces' by C. S. Lewis].

Those three 'generations' that in number symbolism are represented by the number '120' {'Micro'?}.

What does the 'egg' represent within that MIND SET.

Foundation stone. 'Hole' S/E.

Side note: ''Neither the New Testament nor the Church Fathers allude to Mary Magdlene's fate after the resurrection. Likely she was among the one hundred and twenty in the Upper room, participating in the beginnings of the early Church formation {'Foundation'?}: Beyond that different traditions offer possibilities about how her life continued....'' [ Page 97 'Mary Magdalene: Insights from Ancient Magdala' / J. Ristine].

Macro ?

Continued: "There they find an enclosed chamber which is, however, lit brightly as by an interior sun. This is a common statement of those who had penetrated the ancient Mysteries: that they had gone into the 'underworld' and 'seen the sun shine at midnight' - or had found the starry universe within rather than beyond the earth." [Same book]. Among others try ''midnight sun'' {Manifested?}.

Side note: {something hinted at - in 'story' form {''method'' link}: " And so the deep teachings begin...Making the sign of the Three Rays....It will be the 'white' raven {north?} not the 'black' one, which will show the way....The white raven, magical, impossibly rare, unseen in common hours. 'Teacher, what does it mean?'....'Riddle me this Bear Cub,' Merlyn replied, ''If a man were convinced to believe that such a bird existed, how many need be produced? Three? five perhaps?'' The ball was in my court {Mayan ball court link?}. ''Why one of course''...." Exactly so,'' the Druid replied, ''Res ipsa loquitur - the thing speaks for itself, the correct answer is self evident {'midnight sun' link}, no explanations needed. Just one undeniable example will serve as proof of anything..." [Page 37 'Deeper Teachings of Merlyn' / D. Monroe]. Enlarged elsewhere.

'Grimes cave' ? {UNmanifested?}. Enlarged elsewhere.


Lion Man.

Torc closed {with three petals?}. Hands, navel, chin to the top of the head {crown space?} - central to a THEME ? A blossoming - within a 'line of sight'? i.e., What signs of the zodiac represent the hands, throat and head? Any legs and feet? Above below the navel?

''Three Rays'' in relation to: ’The Mark’. By M. Nicoll. A link to the wet/dry way. Freemasonry equivalent of similar, the 'lions paw' in relation to the 'Eagle's claw grip',[i.e., 'animal' in relation to 'bird'], as explained as part of 'becoming' a 'master mason' within the book ' The Hiram Key'. Mentioned elsewhere. Chapter one ], i.e., "There remains a third and peculiar method, known as the Lions Paw or Eagles Claw Grip". Think about it, in relation to the symbolism of... to grasp and or 'scratch' something, by way of, 'three' symbolism and the 'cant' language, together with lower [lion], higher [eagle]. [All explained within] in relation to the 'purpose' of Freemasonry. All still in the 'lower' state, until an 'awareness' dawns, i.e., enlightenment surfaces......

Side note: "In Canis Minor lay a part of the contracted {kneeling?} forearm, or Paw, of the early Lion {Asad}; the other, the Extended Paw, running up into the heads of Gemini...Canis Minor lies to the S/E from the feet of Gemini, its western border over the edge of the Milky Way, and is separated by Monoceros from Canis Major and Argo." [Page 133, 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

Question. The 'head' of Gemini in relation to the extended 'paw' of the Sphinx = Northern or Southern 'gateway'?

''Beethoven's fifth is morse code for the letter 'V'.....'' ['The Chase']. And/or: ''Five is the human soul. Just as mankind is comprised of both good and evil, so the five is the first number made up of even and odd.'' ['The Mystery of Numbers' / A. Schimmel].

Side note: "Aries {Ram} = 'head'. Gemini {Twins} = arms. Leo {Lion} = heart. Libra {Scales} = pelvis. Sagittarius {Man-horse} = thighs. Aquarius {Waterman} = lower leg. Taurus {Bull} = neck and throat. Cancer {crab/crayfish} = chest and breasts. Virgo {Virgin} = stomach, womb. Scorpio {Scorpion} = sexual parts. Capricorn {Goat-fish} = knees. Pisces {Fish} = feet.

"Every part of the human being is linked with some part of the cosmos. We wished we had a mediaeval image of the zodiacal man to show the zodiacal rulerships...

Tara brooch?

The head is ruled by Aries, the throat by Taurus, the feet by Pisces. You see then that the head and feet were linked with the two extremes of the zodiac. In the zodiac circle they touch..." ['The Zelator'].

Side note: The Westness brooch was a product of changing fashions during the 8th century, but was found with the body of a woman buried around a hundred years later in a Viking-style cemetery. Thanks to careful excavation, we know that the brooch-pin’s missing studs were already lost by the time it was placed in the grave. This suggests that it was a precious heirloom, probably passed down through generations. Similarly, the Hunterston Brooch had Norse runes carved onto its back some 200 years after it was made, showing it was still a cared-for possession.

Sutton Hoo purse clasp: Wolfs / eagles and ducks.

The Westness brooch-pin was discovered by accident when a farmer was burying a dead cow in 1963. It was only recognised after it had been dug out of the soil, in the spoil heap! When the archaeologist arrived, she discovered a disturbed grave in a stone chamber: an elite, Scandinavian-style female burial from the first generation of Viking migrants to Orkney in the early 9th century. This remains the richest female Viking-age burial yet discovered in Scotland, in terms of the amount of grave goods and the range of material (including items of gold, silver, bronze, glass, iron, antler and textile).

Brooch-pins like these are a product of changing fashions in the 8th century. Horseshoe-shaped or penannular brooches had been the most popular dress-fastener among the elite for hundreds of years. These brooches had a pin which could move around the hoop, effectively locking both the brooch and clothing in place. In time, fashions changed: the pin was made longer and the brooch hoop became just a decorative ring at the top, a place to add more decoration rather than a functional feature. The Westness brooch-pin has what looks like a miniaturised Hunterston Brooch placed at the head of a pin. This is why it has a projecting beast-head beneath the hoop terminals, its mouth used to grip a chain or cord, now lost, which would have attached to the pin.

REFRESHER: ''And with some final ceremonial words...she circumnavigated the circle for the last time that night. Returning to the east, she turned and faced us: 'Our circle is open but never broken. Merry meet, and merry part, and merry meet again!'...Joy filled the  room...Freedom swept aside the 'terrors' that had once constrained....Where a 'knot' had once filled my heart, now i felt 'movement' and possibility.

And/or: .........Its brilliance can vary, but its size is the same . And it is also by means of this 'star' that the individual soul passes from one body to another in the cycle of birth and rebirth. However many times a man is burned or buried, the blue star will always stay the same. It leaves the body at death, but stays at the place of death for 'eleven' days. [Link to the ''eleventh hour.'' This readers input]. Afterward, [link to the 'twelfth hour'], according to destiny, it carries the soul with its sins and virtues to different worlds. The blue star is the 'self propelled vehicle' of the individual soul. When the individual is born again, the blue star is born with it. When the star exploded, my cycle of coming and going had ended. The vehicle had broken down, so how could i come and go anymore? This breaking may also be called the piercing of the knot of the heart.

The Ibis bird between two Storks. The most ancient hieroglyph found {Abydos}. The very first one or at least the very first one found to mean ''horizon''. Migratory birds that can rise above the horizon to new realms; new dimentions - to stretch ones boundaries. Something in flight - towards an end result.

At last i was overcome with the desire to mount the seven steps and to see the seven punishments, and, as was suitable, in a single day; so i went back in order to complete the ascent. Passing it several times i at length came upon the path. But as i was about to ascend i lost my way again....discouraged i fell asleep....saw a barber in a robe of royal purple who stood outside the place of punishments. I followed him to the place ....He entered and was consumed by fire....I understood this to be the barber as the brazen man....Further on he meets ''an old man whitened by years,'' {Agathodaimon the leaden man}, who asks: ''Why are you stretched out''....who later on ''changes'' from lead to silver to gold.

Continued: Analogy {i.e.,Egyptian culture} but because that key {i.e.,''milk''} is universal - more information can be 'extracted' from it - more 'information' that defines the parts within the whole: "Alabaster probably originated from limestone in a liquid or muddy state, whence come its grey, brown, or rosy whorls floating in it like veils, as if this matter were in a state of becoming from a more terrestrial state toward a more subtle, flowing, state that could be compared to cream rising to the top of milk. It is curious, in this connection, to note that 'ankh uas' {the sap of life} is one of the designations of milk, and that 'ankh'{ life} sometimes also serves to designate alabaster or some object executed in this material. But the term most specifically designated alabaster is 'ches', a phonetic group which, depending on the determinative, can also mean an edible grain, or something precious. Alabaster is frequently qualified as clear or pure, followed by the name of its place of origin, the most famous being 'Hat-nub' {''house of gold''}. It is the name of an important alabaster deposit in the Arabian Mountain, located about 20 kilometers S/E of Tel el-Amarna...Among the famous monumental masterpieces in alabaster is the sanctuary of Thothmes III at Karnak, designed to house the sacred boat of Amon; each of its walls is made from a single piece of alabaster 8 meters in length..."

''In Botany the root that stabalises a plant is called an anchor root.'' AND/OR: ''When water is added to grain it is called Oat milk.'' ['The Chase' / 11.3.22].

Mosses are small, non-vascular flowerless plants in the taxonomic division Bryophyta (/brˈɒfətə/,[3] /ˌbr.əˈftə/sensu stricto. Bryophyta (sensu latoSchimp. 1879[4]) may also refer to the parent group bryophytes, which comprise liverworts, mosses, and hornworts.[5] Mosses typically form dense green clumps or mats, often in damp or shady locations....Mosses do not have seeds and after fertilisation develop sporophytes with unbranched stalks topped with single capsules containing spores. They are typically 0.2–10 cm (0.1–3.9 in) tall, though some species are much larger. Dawsonia, the tallest moss in the world, can grow to 50 cm (20 in) in height. There are approximately 12,000 species.[2]

Peat bog?

Mosses are commonly confused with liverworts, hornworts and lichens.[7] Although often described as non-vascular plants, many mosses have advanced vascular systems.[8][9] Like liverworts and hornworts, the haploid gametophyte generation of mosses is the dominant phase of the life cycle. This contrasts with the pattern in all vascular plants (seed plants and pteridophytes), where the diploid sporophyte generation is dominant. Lichens may superficially resemble mosses, and sometimes have common names that include the word "moss" (e.g., "reindeer moss" or "Iceland moss"), but they are fungal symbioses and not related to mosses....The main commercial significance of mosses is as the main constituent of peat...

Spots of.....?

Moss has threadlike rhizoids that anchor them to their substrate, comparable to root hairs rather than the more substantial root structures of spermatophytes.[17] Mosses do not absorb water or nutrients from their substrate through their rhizoids.[citation needed] They can be distinguished from liverworts (Marchantiophyta or Hepaticae) by their multi-cellular rhizoids. Spore-bearing capsules or sporangia of mosses are borne singly on long, unbranched stems, thereby distinguishing them from the polysporangiophytes, which include all vascular plants."

Something to ponder on: "Upon entering the tomb and catching the first glimpse of the treasure trove it had been harbouring for thousands of years, Howard Carter uttered two words in response to Lord Carnarvon question: 'What do you see'? ''Wonderful things'' replied Carter. Interestingly, those also happen to be the words inscribed on one of the first of many objects they discovered on that first day: the magnificent alabaster chalice - inscribed with prayers and wishes for the boy king. It read: ''May you live thousands of years. May your eyes 'see' wonderful things." [Readers Digest. December 2019].

REFRESHER: "Gudea made offerings of honey and butter when the foundations were laid; when the building was finished an auspicious day was waited for, and when it came the image of the god was removed to the new temple, and Gudea sprinkled the ground with oil, and set out offerings of honey, butter, wine and dates, grain mixed with milk, food untouched by 'fire', for the gods."

Unconscious = 'shadow' = ''recesses'' = 'crevice'?

Side note:  ''This concept of Celli Wig, a seat of government and therefore symbolic of the central recess of Arthurs soul, raises the whole question of the significance of the topographical description insisted on throughout this myth. That a 'boar hunt' should range from the west of Ireland, across the Irish Channel, to West Wales, thence to South Wales as far as the river Severn, and now be threatening Cornwall, clearly indicates some psychic concept.''

In fact, it pertains to a living branch {Sycamore?} conducting the vivifying sap, but this sap only ascends without again descending, as it must do in order to take on body beneath the bark {'khonsu'?}. This is one of the reasons for choosing the object as symbol, and a particular regarding the intention: the flux of the Word - the nourishing sap - is not yet manifested. It pertains to an activity, the 'creative' function, which is not yet created..." ['Sacred Science'].

''Hieroglyphs at Philae's temple of Isis refer to milk as ankh-was {'uas'}, or 'life and power'. Milk seems to be infused with this magical element of transferring life and power to the one who is deceased, much in the way that the breast milk of the mother keeps her infant alive and growing....There seems to be this connection in the mind of the Numbians. For the Nubians, then, milk would have been the ideal offering to aid in the rebirth of Osiris. Milk libation rituals would have been performed during annual funerary rites of Osiris. Known as the Festival of Entry - during the month of Khoiak, in the early FALL, when the Nile flooding reached its peak...Nubian inscriptions found on such buildings as the Gate of Hadrian and a room in the  temple of Isis known as the Meroitic Chamber....The longest such inscription at Philae as well as in Egypt {twentysix lines}-dated April 10 AD 253 gave a command by the king of Meroe to throw a party/feast {'joy/grace' link?} - for the entire district...celebrated for eight days.

25th Dynasty. What does 'twentyfive' represent? Synchronistic link?

Side note: ''The Shabaka Stone, sometimes Shabaqo {'shabatu'?}, is a relic incised with an ancient Egyptian religious text, which dates from the Twenty-fifth Dynasty of Egypt.[1] In later years, the stone was likely used as a millstone, which damaged the hieroglyphs....The stone's dedicatory introduction claims that it is a copy of the surviving contents of a worm-ridden, decaying papyrus found by the pharaoh Shabaka in the Great Temple of Ptah.[6] Homer W. Smith dates the original text to the First Dynasty, calling it "the oldest written record of human thought".[7]

Recall the dry river beds at Abydos and Petra.

Breasted, Adolf Erman, Kurt Sethe, and Hermann Junker all dated the stone to the Old Kingdom.[8] The stone is archaic, both linguistically (its language is similar to

that used in the Pyramid Texts of the Old Kingdom) and politically (it alludes to the importance of Memphis as the first royal city).

In 1901, James Henry Breasted identified the stone as a rectangular slab of black granite.[11] While other scholars postulated that the monument was a slab or basalt or a conglomerate stone, a recent analysis by a scientist of the British Museum revealed the stone to be green breccia originating from Wadi Hammamat.''

The new city: ''The signs Gemini and Virgo are alloted to Mercury. This association accounts for Virgo sometimes represented with the caduceus.''

Something 'new'.

Continued: ''Curiously enough, one of the few, if not the only, archaeological evidences of a cult of Virgo is to be found in Roman Britain. The prefect of a cohort stationed at the eleventh fort on Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland in the time of Severus emperors {third century}, raised an inscription to Virgo, in which the familiar figure, bearing her usual attribute, the ear of corn {specifera}, is the object of a syncretist worship which combines the Carthaginian Queen of Heaven, Virgo Caelestis, with the mother of the gods, with Ceres, with Atargatis, the Syrian goddess, yet she is still the JUST virgin goddess of the golden age: 'inventress of justice, foundress of the city'....'' ['Astraea: The Imperial Theme in the Sixteenth Century' / F. A. Yates].

Quantity/Quality: The ''quality'' is an internal process/journey. BACK through those layers. A return to the 'source'. A centering within. 'Young' = virgin/seed link. The beginning of something. A solitary tree was found on top. 'Perseus' to enlarge from the mythical SENSE of the word.

As seen from a different perspective: "No, the problem at Gobekli-Tepe is the pristine, sudden appearance, like Athena springing full-grown and fully armed from the brow of Zeus, of what appears to be an already seasoned civilization so accomplished that it 'invents' both agriculture and monumental architecture at the apparent moment of its birth...Yes. But the strange thing is that there was a clear collapse in the effort that was made as the centuries went by. The truly monumental structures are in the older layers; in the younger layers they get smaller and there is a significant decline in quality...So the oldest is the best?...Yes, the oldest is the best...And you don't find that puzzling?...The answer to the mystery is of course obvious but, because it is repellent to the prevailing cast of modern thinking, it is seldom considered. Gobekli-Tepe was not a development but a legacy..." ['Magicians of the Gods'].

Question. Manifested/UNmanifested - as a means...?

'twentythree' layers?

Question 2. Where within that mountain of a monument would the feminine aspect be represented? Has it been discovered yet? Has the author touched on it if only in the synchronistic sense of the 'word'? Try ''Hatshepsut'' for a 'direction' to follow.

"Well, we hope that eventually we will discover even older layers and that there we will see the small beginnings that we expect but haven't yet found...We are used to things starting out small and simple and then progressing - evolving - to become ever more complex and sophisticated, so this is naturally what we expect to find on archaeological sites. It upsets our carefully structured ideas of how civilizations should behave, how they should mature and develop, when we are confronted by a case like Gobekli-Tepe that starts out perfect at the beginning and then slowly devolves until it is a pale shadow of its former {'elder'?} self..." Same book.

OR put another way involution v 'evolution' IN THE SPIRITUAL SENSE OF THE WORD.


Something hinted at: ''Profound progress in thinking will not come about by the demonstration of a new geometric theorem. In what way is evolution assisted by showing the relationships of the Golden section to the pentagon and that into a hexagon, as well as all the logical sequences of the Platonic solids - i know these things - as such they only represent mental satisfaction. It is more important for me to discover, in the functions of Phi, of Pi, and of the pentagon, the function that compels them to be what they are. It is more important to know why, through the spring equinox, the male mollusk becomes female..." [ Page 60 'The Egyptian Miracle'].

AND/OR: Something hinted at {i.e.,in the 'archetypal' sense of the word}: "Saturn 'invented' agriculture; this god of the earth and the peasant, the harvest and the Saturnalia, is ruler of 'fruit and seed'. Even his castrating sickle is a 'harvesting' tool. It would have to be 'Saturn' who invents agriculture: only the senex {''old man'',i.e., elder link} has the patience equalling that of the soil and can understand the soil's conservation and the conservation of those who till it; the ability to abstract so as to master the geometry of 'ploughing', the essence of seeds..." ['Saturn and the Theoretical Foundation of an Emerging Discipline'. Emphasis, this readers].

Therefore ''old/elder man'' = 'Ploughing'? What about 'hoeing'?

Queendom to take a step further.

Try ''Saturn'' to see a possible beginning/end {start point?} - in the astrology {night sky} - sense of the word. Especially in relation to ''essence''.

''The head of the 'fish' should face the eldest.'' Chinese dining custom. Coincidence or a...?

Therefore the 'tail end' begins...? {S/E?}.

Put those ''keys'' together to 'see' the parts within the whole. To define the inner workings of our ancestors. Question. Anthropology?

N.B. Whether or not you agree with the statement - ''that it 'invents' both agriculture and monumental architecture...." - the most important word within those opinions is the final one {i.e.,'legacy'}.

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

"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, in order to posses speech; his the eagles wings, in order to scale the heights; his the bulls flanks, in order to furrow the depths; his the lions talons, to make a way on the right and the left, before and behind." [Quote taken from the chapter entitled 'The Candidate' from the book by E. Levi]. Try ''furrow'' then ''paw''.

They are the 'Elements' themselves on a higher level, being the Fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius...Strength and Patience for the Ox, courage and nobility with the Lion, swiftness and aspiration with the Eagle, and intelligence and devotion with Man.'' [Page 31 'Ladder of Lights' / W. Gray].

And/or: from a different perspective ,i.e., the 'ritual' one. But because those {concepts?} are universal - sense can be got from it; if only to determine a MINDSET - especially when including {and therefore considering} - that universal ''bit'':

"If you are uncertain about making these pieces of equipment you can meditate upon the four Tarot aces, or visualize pictures of the 'magical' work you wish to do....As you work on each item, think of how it is an extension of a part of your inner self. The 'pentacle' is your shield of self sufficiency; the 'cup' {and/or cauldron} your ability to feel and sympathize; your 'sword' or knife is the part of you that can make a way clear ahead and get round obstacles; the 'wand' is your purpose, your Will to succeed and the application of your inner strength." [Page 98 from the book by Marian Green].

Tail end = the ''handle'' on something?

Something extra: {something hinted at}: "Mystery surrounds many manmade stone markers and edifices. They defy explanation until we connect them with the zodiacal 'religion'. The Sphinx is undoubtedly the foremost among them, because everything points to it being a zodiacal monument. It represents the four cardinal points of the compass and cross within the circle of the zodiac. This enigmatic edifice could well be the symbol for Nebo, the Winged Man, with the human head representing Aquarius/ Water; the body of the bull represents Bel/Taurus, the Earth; the paws of a lion for Leo/Fire, the Winged Lion, Shamash the Sun; and the wings of an eagle for Scorpio/Air ruled by Ninib. This symbolizes the constellations of Leo and its opposite house, Aquarius....The four figures of the Book of Revelation were the Lion/Ox/Man/Eagle. The Sphinx faces the eastern horizon where the sun rises in the spring and autumn equinoxes....Most cathedrals are built in a cruciform ground plan on an axis east-west and the internal emphasis on the eastern end where the 'altar' is placed {altar of 'sacrifice'?}. The construction of the early European cathedrals....demonstrates the specific architecture that incorporates twin pillars at the west end, drawing worshippers into the 'holy' place down the nave towards the east. The word nave = Latin for 'ship' - is where everyone congregates. The ship features in legends - as in the 'arc' {key} of heaven, whose pilot Ursa Nebo traversed the heavens, and Noah's arc of the great flood..." [Page 9/15 ' Pathways to the Zodiac' / E. Winstanley].

Refresher: "In Canis Minor lay a part of the contracted {kneeling?} forearm, or Paw, of the early Lion {Asad}; the other, the Extended Paw, running up into the heads of Gemini...Canis Minor lies to the S/E from the feet of Gemini, its western border over the edge of the Milky Way, and is separated by Monoceros from Canis Major and Argo." [Page 133, 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

The above is a good example of this subjects purpose, to the reader, of its depth of 'understanding' by way of symbolism. What the authors of the 'The Master Game' loosely term as Talismanic thinking. If the authors had as deep an understanding of the subject as a 'whole' and not just in its historical context, then they would understand that "the father of light",[chapter thirteen.'The Master Game']... does indeed appear in the bible, especially in the Old Testament, 'by way' of 'Yahweh',[''Adonai''] One of its most frequently used words. Explained above, but more importantly, it explains why.




''The round object in the goddess' left hand is thought to be an 'Apple of Life'. [Page 53 'GogMagog'].

A link to the 'language of birds' or even the 'language of horses', [Cabala. N.B. No connection to the Hebrew Kabbala], as explained in the first few pages of 'The Dwellings of the Philosophers' by 'Fulcanelli', i.e., "No one has attempted to explain the symbolism used by certain sculptors. No one has traced it back to an ancient symbolical language called the 'Cabala', still alive today in disguise, as in the French slang called "argot"- but which lies dormant in all languages".

Side note: "The metal worker knows the mystery of 'fire' transmutation. The tinker and jobbing blacksmith knows the mystery of metal and has the Horseman's Word - the means of controlling animals, the lingua franca {i.e., a 'bridge' language} or shelta {i.e., 'cant' language} of all smiths. And as such people were under the patronage of the goddess Brigid, so the alchemist pays careful attention to the service of the Anima Mundi of Our Lady Earth. The alchemist was the midwife and priest of transmutation...." [Page 203 'The Western Way'. Vol 2].

Think about it in relation to the language of 'oc', [Occitania. Explained elsewhere], together with the Romany 'cant' language, of which it is said a secret was given to same, at the fall of the Egyptian rule. All enclosed within 'picture' cards. Those same picture cards that the author of 'Meditations on the Tarot' ['A Journey into Christian Hermeticism' ], refers to as 'arcana'.


The Narmer Palette. A representation of the union of upper and lower Egypt. Found in the city of the FALCONS. Plenty of keys [arcana] in which to understand the whole. Red in relation to white. Falcon in relation to the tool used in the opening of the mouth ceremony. [Made of iron]. Flail in relation to head gear. Kneeling relative to upright, both of which are standing over fleeing naked individuals. Indicative of something outside of the obvious. Other keys to decipher - bald chap, sandals, basket, cow, bull. Its most important key however, being those two animals that unite with their necks. A picture representation of same. Using a collar as its main key. Recall what collar represents. The neck being the bridge between the head and the body. As it is with the head and body of the Sphinx. Indicative of higher and lower Indicative of the benefits of that understanding. That understanding of a union. [Potential of]. That same union {i.e.,Festival of the Re-union - enlarged elsewhere} - that within this subject is represented {in part} with the heart key. Notice the shape of what those keys - what all that 'information' are inscribed within. That same shape that could also, be referred to as an arrow point. Recall what its symbolism, represents. Both when understood, by way of objective reasoning , have a common factor the analogy of which, could be described by way of cupids arrow. N.B. 'Consort' of Cupid = 'Psyche'. This subjects primary ''teaching'' aid. Question. Coincidence? Or a meaningfull one?

"An arcanum is that which is necessary to 'know' in order to be fruitful in a given domain of 'spiritual' life. [i.e.,the same meaning as ''esoteric'',i.e.,'inner' or 'within'. Check it out]......

'The fruit of ones labours' = The 'Horn of Plenty'?

.....It is that which must be actively present in our consciousness - or even in our subconscious - in order to render us capable of making discoveries, engendering new ideas, conceiving of new artistic subjects. In a word it makes us fertile in our creative pursuits, in whatever domain of spiritual life. An arcanum is a 'ferment' of an 'emzyme' whose presence stimulates the spiritual and the psychic life of man and woman. And it is symbols which are the bearers of these 'ferments' or 'emzymes', which communicate them - if the mentality and morality of the recipient are ready, i.e.,"if he is poor in spirit" and does not suffer from the most serious spiritual malady...self complacency." [Page 4, first chapter].

OR - before those first impressions [lower self?] dictate something else - "An arcanum = a key that one has to know in order to be able to orientate oneself..." [Quote from within the book by Tomberg]. OR...

"...Arcanum - that which one needs to know in order to make discoveries of each arcanum." [same book].

"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].

"Serious mysteries may be describable only in terms of paradox, or in what passes for jest. Cupid continues to jest and make merry during..." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

A working example: "The constellation Felis the Cat - a word which Latin lexicographers now write Faelis, was formed by La Lande {1805}....Its inventor said of it: 'I am very fond of cats. I will let this figure scratch on the chart. The starry sky has worried me quite enough in my life {the study of it?} - so that now I can have my joke with it.'...It has long been discontinued in catalogues and charts. Proctor assigned this title to Canis Minor, but no one has followed him in this change." [Page 221 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

Analogy of same principle ''...a symbol is a key to reach a field of knowledge or/and to go from the exterior towards the interior..." [Extract taken from the book 'The Experience of Reality' by J. Dubuis].

As it is when understanding any subject.

As an example, i.e.,with this subject in mind... "Sokar is the latent spiritual principle within all living things, the spirit embedded in the deepest regions of matter that awaits arousal." [Chapter two, 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt].

''First attested in English in 1785, the word camelopardalis comes from Latin, and it is the romanization of the Greek "καμηλοπάρδαλις" meaning "giraffe", from "κάμηλος" (kamēlos), "camel" + "πάρδαλις" (pardalis), "spotted," because it has a long neck like a camel and spots.''

Side note: "It is as if each class represented all possibilities of development, at times carrying certain characteristics to an extreme beyond any utilitarian ends that could be determined by simple logic...We can understand the marvelous equilibrium of the supple panther's four limbs, as skilful at climbing as at leaping, but the excessive neck of the giraffe never ceases to amaze..." ['Sacred Science' / R. A. Schwaller De Lubicz]. Try ''panther''.

All as a means...?

''As tall as a giraffe, the now extinct guetzalcoatlus is thought to be the largest ever creature to fly...There is a South American bird called quetzal, and the Quetzalcoatl {which is a word within that dinosaur name} - is the winged serpent god of Aztec myth.'' ['The Chase'].

The ''beginning'' of something?

Yet another analogy with the same intent - different time period - different author. Question. A universal conspiracy?..."To raise the evanescent ''real'' man to a state of 'perfection' [called] ideal man, is the great Arcanum... It is the great secret , that may be understood by a child, but will forever be incomprehensible to him who, living entirely in the realm of sensual perceptions, has no power to grasp it. This attainment of 'spiritual consciousness' is the Magnum Opus, the great work, of which the alchemists said..." [Quote from the book by F. Hartman].

The word 'cant' as explained in the dictionary..."Language peculiar to a specified group."

That word 'peculiar' used by many authors to define something that they just cant get their heads around. Almost there, yet not there. Another description of the same word relates to the 'angle' of a ship [and/or 'oblique/sideways 'look'. Think about it in relation to the Egyptian picture 'profile' symbolism]. Or even the 'corner' of something, [root of]. In its abbreviated form a link to 'canticles', i.e., Song of Solomon.

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

Example {of same?} - from someone who is aware of this subject..."It is important to state unambiguously that our data are not in conflict with ''science,'' as the naive will imagine - in fact, we will provide several scientific explanations for all of it - but it is, grotesquely and awkwardly, in total conflict with common sense. It is perverse, paradoxical and preposterous. One might say, ''its damned funny," and if a child asked innocently, ''Do you mean 'funny ha ha' or 'funny peculiar'?" I'd have to say, ''Both." [Extract from the book by R. A. Wilson].

Finally..."The children of Seth [Set] first possessed that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies". [Chapter five. 'The Sirius Mystery'].

"It is because of this knowledge that Seth is so named, his name meaning ''Gift of God.'' In his hand is the key to the [divine] gifts in all their variety and relations [and/or reflections. This readers input]. God bestowed him on Adam, as his first unconditional gift, bestowing him as coming from Adam himself, since the son is the inner reality of the 'father,' issuing from him and to him, returning." [Chapter 2, 'The Bezels of Wisdom']. Try ''hand''.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

"Now, ''the magnificent gifts'' of which it is a matter here are not the magical phenomena but rather revelations in the inner life of intuition and inspiration." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter seventeen' ]. Recall how those two 'aspects' [highlighted] can only be achieved.

That link to ''fall'' symbolism. Purpose of. Together with.... "God unites the polarities of qualities ['aspects'] only in Adam, to confer a distinction on him. Thus he says to Lucifer, 'What prevents you from prostrating to one whom i have created with my two hands?' [Quran 38:75] .

What prevents Lucifer, is the very fact that he [man] unites [in himself] the two modes...the Cosmos, and the Reality, which are his two hands. [i.e.,this authors way of describing that unknown / known potential. Unknown in the sense to those individuals who only see this world [physical/material] as it is [with the 'naked' eye]. Compared to those who 'see' the fullness of that potential [i.e.,by way of ''the minds eye'' in relation to this subject], in relation to the 'whole journey'. What this author finally defines as ''Reality''. Same book, chapter one ].

Recall the link between ''fall'' and ''Lucifer,'' i.e., all 'aspects' , one way or another, relate to an individual. One individual.

The main point to the inclusion of the above, however, is to make known that the word ''hands'' are also symbolic. Anything ''naked'' represents that ''unknown'' aspect. When 'clothing' of any description is associated with same; then it denotes an understanding has taken place [i.e.,now ''known'']. In the above example 'gloves' would be that indication. Other examples found within i.e.,the Seb Jubilee 'skirt', or 'head' gear. Question. Can you determine, what each represents?

Narmer Palette? and/or Mithras cult? Enlarged elsewhere.

HANDS AND FEET: 'Flower' pot head?

Only mentioned to indicate the importance of understanding the subject as a whole, in the context of other subjects. For example... "One of the arguments which might be raised against placing the Israelite Exodus in the 13th Dynasty is the fact that scholars have always believed it was the Hyksos who introduced the chariot into the Levant and Egypt. Therefore the Egyptians could not have assembled a chariot force to pursue the Israelites until they had acquired the technology from their foreign Hyksos oppressors....."One further important clue has to do with gloves! [Emphasis authors, not mine]. Egypt possesses a hot climate and it will be obvious to you that the ancient Egyptians did not wear gloves in order to keep their hands warm. When you see leather gloves amongst Tutankhamun's treasures in the Cairo museum you immediately recognize that these are 'chariot gloves' which the boy king wore to protect his hands from the chafing of leather reins. When we look at a wall relief from the el-Amarna tomb of Ay, 'Master of Horse', showing the tomb owner wearing gloves at a royal investiture in his honour, we again know that these gloves are part of the trappings of a charioteer - in this case the commander of the chariot forces of Egypt. These chariot gloves were clearly a status symbol to be displayed as a mark of rank, singling out the wearer as a member of his majesties elite troops." [Chapter 13, 'A Test of Time' by D. Rohl].

'Fits the hand like a glove'

Mind set?

A working example: "Elsewhere in his book he deplores the lack of interest in that which is worth while, at the same time analyzing the word “pastime.”....He says, “The world, out of its own use of this word, renders judgment against itself. For it is concerned with amusements and pleasures which do not really satisfy the mind....and fill it with the sense of an abiding and satisfying joy; they serve only, as this word confesses, to pass away the time, to prevent it from hanging, an intolerable burden, on man's hands; all which they can do at the best is to prevent men from discovering and attending to their own internal poverty and dissatisfaction and want."

Side note: Hector of Troy legend = 'Tamer of Horses'. While recalling Paris who 'stole' Helen. And/or the Trickster character that stole 'fire'. A negative that has to be ''turned'' {precession?} into a positive.

Continued: The author attempting to change 'dates' in order to verify a hypothesis of which, amongst other things, Solomons Temple; he believes, will most likely be found, {i.e.,in a different epoch strata}. To understand its true intent put 'temple' in the 'search box'. Then try ''chariot''.

''Fits like a glove''.

Leather is always identified with Hathor,[recall her main 'symbol'] of which all 'rulers' regardless of 'time' or period have to identify with [one way or another] as part of their 'calling' [i.e.,Kingship]. Other words [keys] highlighted.

Can you put them all together to understand something other than the obvious?

Wagons in relation to chariots. 'Ramp' to enlarge.

As is: "It looked like the original curves of the horses legs...but it turned out to be chariot with a pole joining it to the legs of the animal. This puzzling find in no way helped to explain Gogmagog….In all other ways the chariot complicated matters. It did not look as if it was an Iron Age vehicle. It had the appearance of a Roman classic type added at a later date while the horse was of the Iron Age....The horse, lady and chariot had been drawn as if they were on a white road {'chalk'} leading up to the earthwork....The roadway was probably a sacred path heading for something within the earthen ring." [Page 32 'GogMagog' / T. Lethbridge].

A {working?} example: "What I have written in this book should serve as a terrible warning to those who lightheartedly embark on a search for 'giants'. A problem, which did not seem of any great moment to me, has plunged me into months of fieldwork, blistered hands, scratched ears and rheumatic joints. It has led me also far down paths of investigation, which I had never intended to tread....I see now that one might spend a lifetime of this kind of thing and still have more to do at the end of it. But it is worth doing, for it opens up a glimpse of the ideas of men in Europe long ago.....In chasing the old religions of Europe, we seem to be able to watch the spread in every direction of one great belief. It came of top of vague and scattered beliefs in some form of totemism. It was so much higher in the scale of ideas, that people jumped at it, as later they did with Christianity. Although the thoughts of many men probably went to form it, one suspects that only one really great thinker hammered it into shape. In attempting to appreciate how this idea was thought out...." [Page 154/5 'GogMagog'].

And/or: "Here I shall leave the quest for the moment. It has been most fascinating, and I think I have only reached a halting place on the road. Innumerable questions still keep tumbling into my mind. Was the Highland water - horse, for instance, only an idle tale of imagination formed from vague stories of the hippo in Egypt? Same book.


A sow's ear or a silk purse?

A side step: "It shared with Antares the title Ta Who, and was the central one of the seven lunar asterism making up the Azure Dragon...But individually Graffias seems to have been known as the Four Horse Chariot of Heaven, and was worshipped by all horsemen. It probably was also Fu Kwang, the Basket with Handles, and highly regarded as presiding over the rearing of silkworms, and as indicating the commencement of the season of that great industry of China...Graffias is said to be of an unknown derivation...more than likely from the word ''crab'' it is well known that the ideas and words for crab and scorpion were almost interchangeable in early days, from the belief that the latter creature was generated from the former...It was included in the 15th manzil {'Crown of the Forehead'}, just north of which feature it lies...The Hindu's knew the group {which contains Graffias} as their 15th nakshatra {'Propitious or Successful'} - they figured it as a Row or Ridge which the line of component stars indicate {''line of sight''?}..."

Another example..."The Djed column, with its four capitals, symbolises stability and duration in the Osirian world. Lying on the ground it expresses death, and its setting up, by the king in person, signifies the resurrection. This ceremony was a joyous one, in the Temple of Abydos the scene of the erection of the Djed columns is followed by that of the Offering of Cloths, in which the column is clothed in the manner of a statue. "[Extract from the book {in its 'middle' pages} by the author L. Lamy]. Horizontal/vertical link. Try ''four'' and ''garment'' for a deeper read.

Abydos in relation to Thebes. Question. What lies in the middle of both? Question. Any similarities to Stonehenge?

That link to Enoch "as to the invention of 'language' itself. Because according to the secret doctrine, all languages originated with the giving of names to the heavenly bodies". That 'language' that predated the Tower of Babel. [For further information on 'Enoch' as represented in different forms throughout all cultures see chapter seven 'The Secret History of the World'].

nhgbContinued: "Whenever a gnostic receives a spiritual intuition in which brings him new 'spiritual' knowledge and new spiritual graces, [he should know] that the form he contemplates [i.e., 'information' assessed within this 'subject'. This readers input] is none other than his own essential self, for it is only from the tree of his own self that he will garner the fruits of his knowledge." [Same chapter, same book, i.e.,'Bezels of Wisdom'].

'Tree' in relation to 'tower'. Wood in relation to stone. {'heart of stone'?}. Anything?

For other examples put in the 'search box'.....''the fruit of ones labour.''

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

Refresher: {i.e.,a 'work in progress' representation of}: "...In Book 18, Achilles mother, Thetis, suggests yet another image of the significantly brighter stars of the constellation when she describes her son as a young sapling who will grow into a mighty warrior. Homer also uses Canis Major to reiterate his idea of the celestial sphere when in Book 23 of the Iliad, Achilles tosses this way and that during a restless sleep." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Enlarged elsewhere.

Example that explores [and possibly 'describes'] that inner intent [or 'goal']...

trident"In this particular dream i live in California, Colorado or another sunny somewhere. Amid a throng of people i sit within a lush and riotous flower garden and courtyard, the same garden i've seen pictured within a deck of Tarot cards. A balding, older man, toga-clad like Socrates, stands before the crowd, lecturing to us on how this garden was a sacred Egyptian garden. Before me to the right, i see a small, magical fountain - almost like a baptismal font - built into the side of a building. There water dribbles and bubbles into a pink marble basin in the shape of a shell. Above the flowing water i notice the face of a pink marble angel. Beside the fountain, on the east side of the stucco building, there is an arched wooden door without a handle or a window. In my lap, i hold these strange cards, unlike any Tarot deck i have ever seen. As i say, one card bears the picture of the same garden and fountain where i sit. I raise my hand to ask, "Where in Egypt is this fountain? I want to go and see it." The speaker points to the 'fountain' in front of me. "Right there. There is the fountain." "NO, NO i say, "I mean the real fountain. Where is it?" Again he says, "Right there. That is the fountain!" I turn to the fellow seated beside me and complain, "He doesn't understand my question." "No the fellow replies. "You do not understand the answer. THAT is the fountain."

Which one is the illusion?


Side note: ''The source for our longing is the longing for the ''Lost Beloved of the Soul'' who is really some part of ourselves split off and disowned. The marriage of a man to an anima figure or a woman to an animus figure is marriage to illusion and projection, which results in loss and grief. One finds oneself shouting at the person behind the illusion we have projected, saying: 'You don't understand me!' Certainly the shadow within might well shout back at us, 'No. You don't understand me!'' [Page 85 'Dreams of Isis' / N. Ellis].

And/or: ''Ptah {bald headed} and Sekhmet had a 'child', a beautiful {'nefer'?} BALD headed boy named Nefertem.

Shadow aspect?

Continued: ''His name means 'beautiful being' but 'tem' has a double meaning. It means simultaneously 'to be whole, perfect and complete' as well as 'to not exist'....a reminder of the mystery of life, death and rebirth....Likewise, in the alchemical tradition, occultist MacGregor Mathers describes the Union of the Queen Mother with the King by saying that the two are initially one; then they are seperated and later rejoined in order to bring about a greater resolution.''

A working exmple: ''Sometime before the SEVENTH regnal year of her young nephew King Thutmose III, Queen Hatshepsut, the daughter, wife, and probably granddaughter of kings, was herself crowned king, assuming explicitly the power that she had been wielding unofficially since his accession. In conceiving her kingly role and presenting herself to her people, she took three groups as models: male kings, King's Mothers, and queens regnant. From her association with each of these groups, Hatshepsut derived her legitimacy as a female pharaoh. These models illuminate the nature of her kingship and the reasons for her apparently unorthodox coronation....A number of women had ruled Egypt before Hatshepsut. Most had ruled as 'mwt nswt', 'Kings Mother'', an important title from the very beginning of Egyptian history.'' [Page 9 'Hatshepsut: From Queen to Pharaoh' / The Metropolitan Museum of Art].

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

Continued: '''Child' and lotus alike begin in the dark depths....they emerge as the luminous image of the 'redolent flower, the soul of Ra'. The god is not the flower itself, but manifest within the flower is the force {'god'} that drives the flower. Likewise 'God' manifests in human form, in babe, in lotus, in Nerfertem. The Pyramid Text of Unas declares: 'It is Unas {as} the flowers that have sprung from pure earth....Unas gleams as Nefertem, as the lotus at the nostril {nose} of Ra.'  Ra, the NEW sun, is Nefertem, the child emergent at dawn after his death in the west and his twelve hour passage through the dark underworld of the Duat...He becomes Aufu-Ra, literally the flesh made of light...represented with the winged beetle Kheperi {'carapace'}. It lacks consciousness {i.e., not yet assimilated or made manifest}...but its activities are the food of the soul. The ancients remind us that: 'The seeing of the eye, the hearing of the ears, and the breathing of the nose bring messages to the heart. It is the latter that causes all decisions to be made - but it is the tongue that reports what the heart has thought out.'' [Pages 81/151/2 'Dreams Of Isis' / N. Ellis].

There went up a smoke out of his nostrils and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it....



He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies...He sent out his arrows and shot out lightnings. Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke - at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils...He drew me out of many waters...He brought me into a broad place.'' [Psalm 'eighteen'].

A working example: ''Aligned to either side of the Aten, the seated images of Akhenaten and Nefertiti facing one another - a representation of the horizon which replaces the hills used in the hieroglyph that writes akhet {'horizon'}. The king holds meritaten close to him, and the closeness of their mouths suggests that he is granting to her the breath of life that originates in their heavenly father - the shining sun disc at the top of the scene. This has parallels with Spell 81 of the Coffin Texts, which appears to say of Shu, the son of the creator Atum: 'It is with his nose that he bore me, and it is from his nostril that i came forth. That he might kiss me as he placed me at his neck.'' [Page 19 'Ancient Egypt' / March-April 2023].

REFRESHER: Something extra {add it all together to 'see' something}: "As to our assertion that scriptures applies the notion of ''influence'' to 'God', compare: 'They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters" {Jer.ii.13}, i.e.,the 'Divine' influence that gives life or 'existence'; for the two are identical. Further, ''For with thee is the fountain of life'' {Ps.xxxvi.10}, i.e.,the Divine influence that gives existence. The concluding words of this verse, ''In thy light we 'see' light,'' express exactly what we said, namely, that by the influence of the intellect which 'emanates' from god we become wise, by it we are guided and enabled to comprehend the Active intellect. Note this." [Page 171 'Guide for the Perplexed'].

Any symbols?

".....Through the symbols themselves my dream almost seemed to shout at me. "Stop thinking so much! Logic will never get you to the truth you seek. Everything you need to know lies inherent in the symbol." Intuition instructs the soul in ways logic never could.

As one example: "Socrates who is more or less hidden behind his 'best disciple,' Plato." [Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche]. Think about it, relative to ''archetypes.'' Understanding that 'framework' gives a 'broader' view. A plausible one. Can you see it yet? If only in relation to ''Socrates''. Purpose of?

''I know that I know nothing." {Socrates}.

''The shadow has either a personal or a collective form of appearance depending on whether it belongs to the realm of the collective unconscious. Accordingly, it can either appear as someone we know or have seen etc., or as a dark mythological figure such as a sorcerer, satyr, devil, etc. The shadow stands on the threshold of the collective unconscious. Only when we come to terms with it can we proceed to the second stage of the 'Self' - the anima - meaning soul.'' [Page 118/9 'Mercurius'].

Plato's  threshold?

Someones ''second nature''?

Spirit or soul?

And/or: ''Everyone who contemplates one of the busts of Socrates that has survived may be struck by the lively, satyr like quality of his physiognomy....There is some dispute, as to whether or not Socrates was an initiate....He committed suicide by drinking hemlock. He died forgiving his executioners. The oath against suicide was one of the most terrible taken by initiates." [Page 267 'The Secret History of the World'].

Analogy?: "Jung had 'spirit guides' one of whom was named Philemon. Jung observed that Philemon...brought home to me the crucial insight that there are things in the psyche which i do not produce, but which produce themselves and have there own life." [''].

" Amipsias put it - he was born to spite shoemakers." [Chapter entitled 'The Teaching Mission of Socrates. From the book 'Alexandria' / Vol 3].

Question. Do satyr's wear shoes?

On the Shoulders of giants?

"Lahiri Mahasaya was no bookish interpreter of the scriptures. Effortlessly he dipped into the 'divine library' {Akashic records link}. Foam of words and spray of thoughts gushed from the fountain of his omniscience. He had the wondrous clavis that unlocked the profound philosophical science hidden ages ago in the Vedas. If asked to explain the different planes of consciousness mentioned in the ancient texts, he would smilingly assent." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'].

"Clavicula: This term translates to both “little key” and “collarbone.” It is derived from the Latin word clavis, which means “key.” Interestingly, the collarbone is called the clavicle because its long, slender shape with a slightly bent lateral end resembles a key. Additionally, the bone rotates along its axis like a key when the shoulder is abducted."

And/or: ''Without having 'met' John the Baptist Jesus may not have become the person we know today...Throughout the 4 Gospels the Baptism is reworked again and again, each time giving Jesus more and more spiritual authority....The meaning of it is reworked.......The very last words that we hear from John as he sees Jesus ON THE HORIZON:  'Jesus must grow greater, i must grow less'. That is precisely what happens in history...'' ['Head of John the Baptist' / Nat. Geo. / 2012].


Practical example?..."Church leaders, travelers, and cartographers began now to find firm geographical clues in the Bible that revealed the true location of the Garden of Eden, which many now concluded had existed in the Bible lands themselves. According to the book of Genesis, as well as various apocryphal and pseudepigraphical works of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim origin, the Garden of Eden was watered by a single stream that took its rise from a spring or fountain that emerged from the base of the Tree of Life. After exiting the garden, the stream then split into four rivers..." The author of Gobekli-tepe attempting to define where the Garden of Eden may be located. Very similar to the author of 'A Test of Time' {enlarged elsewhere}. Define the parts to understand the whole {i.e.,subject material} - relative ONLY to the self.

''...emerged from the base of the Tree of Life.'' Understand the ''divine bit'' relative to A/B/C to narrow down those choices. Then try ''fountain''.

Primordial 'fountain' in relation to Primordial 'mound'{''Duku''}. Top/down relative to bottom/up - as a means...

'A river of thoughts'. The means by which an understanding takes place. Purpose of - relative to the whole. Represented as a 'journey'.

A working example: ''The river is like wine. Its rushes are Ptah. Sekhmet is its foliage. Iadet its buds, Nefertem its lotus blossoms. Gold is in joy - when earth brightens in her beauty. And Memphis is a bowl of fruit placed before the merciful of face.'' ['A New Kingdom love poem' from Memphis : from the book 'My Heart My Mother' / A. Roberts].

From the depths.....?

"In Arthurian legend the occurrence of a beautiful lady at a fountain is almost commonplace in the introduction to a story of inner adventures and enchantments. In the subjective economy of things such a symbolic scene represents a power point in the aura. These are known in the East as chakras. They are upwelling life giving force centers from the depths; sources of kundalini or the life force." All as a representation of something.

Question. What is that something, and WHY? In other words what is that final intent, i.e.,what aspect of the 'psyche' relative to ''the thinking process'' [in order to define something; in order to understand something] - does it represent?

"The NaIads dwell in a cave in a mountain, an image that we shall encounter more than once. They are of the class of being known more generally as Nereides or water nymphs, of whom there are many, all daughters of Poseidon, the 'god' of the sea. However, whereas the Nereides were creatures of the great waters, [i.e., salt] the Naiads were associated with inland water sources, [i.e., fresh] particular fountains." [Both paragraphs taken from part two, of the book 'The Rose Cross and The Goddess' by G. Knight].

[4]. Hindu/sandscript equivalent= ‘Asura’, [ ‘Nature beings’ ]...In relation to ‘Devas’, [ 'Shinning ones' i.e.,'enlightenment', by way of an understanding, within a subject]. i.e., lower/higher. The link between the two = ‘Muses’. Those nine aspects of...the still in ‘unconscious’ state until an ‘awareness’...surfaces.

To many lagers?

A {working?} example: ''Were they the creatures I saw by the road from Abbergavenny, of the Deva world?'' I asked. ''They were indeed,'' Merlyn replied....a true inhabitant of the 'shadow' world which is typically invisible to our mortal eyes, and so they often clothe themselves in the myths and thought-forms which various races of mankind have created through the years....Known as 'Nature Spirits', who accept 'command' under no man, unless their loyalties be won over by 'word' {logos? and/or therefore ''understanding''} or deed. " [Douglas Monroe].


That link to 'Ten', i.e.,part of the now 'whole'. [Chapter six.'Esoteric Orders and their Work'.By Dion Fortune]. Buddhist equivalent, the 'three heads' and 'six arms' of Brahma. That link to the 'Graces of Hermes', 'by way of'.... the 'language of the birds'. Chapter seven. 'The Sirius Mystery'.

Sufi equivalent = 'Parliament of the Birds' by Hakim Sanai. Or 'The Universal Tree and the Four Birds' by Ibn Arabi.

[5]. Christian equivalent = ‘Demons/Angels’. The link between the two...'Stations of the Cross'. Think about it, in relation to Cross symbolism. Explained elsewhere. Monastic equivalent 'The Lords Prayer',[Paster Noster] relation to a 'repetitive' action in order to 'bridge' something in the positive sense. Keep in mind what the word 'Lord' is symbolic of. Together with...

Spirals and threads. An inclination towards.....?

"An 'angel' [in a general way,i.e.,Archetype; in the main i.e., more often than not] is a spiritual reality with its own unique content, qualities, and 'character'. What distinguishes one angel from another is not the physical quality of spatial apartness but difference of level- one being above or below another- with respect to fundamental causality in terms of some difference in essence. Now as we have said, angels are 'beings' in the world that is the domain of emotion and feeling: and since this is the case, the substantial quality of an 'angel', may be an impulse or a drive-say, an inclination in the direction of 'love' or a seizure of fear, or pity or the like. "[Page 8, 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose'. Mentioned within].

Yet another analogy with the same intent: but with a deeper meaning to it..."Enquiry is everything'' as i once wrote in my own 'magickal' journal; to break down the buffers that allow us to maintain the sense of separation within our selves and to others. If you cannot communicate clearly within yourself, what chance for you to communicate with your fellows? If you cannot communicate with your fellows, what chance of communicating with more ethereal constructs? and if you cannot talk to 'Angels', what chance of ''walking with god''. [Quote by A. Crowley. Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Mentioned elsewhere. Emphasis - this readers].

And/or..."For convenience, all of the models discussed above and to be discussed as we proceed can be summed into two meta-models. {1} It is all done by our own nervous systems. As we advance towards 'higher intelligence', our brains can increasingly affect the universe, by quantum inseparability, creating first coincidences, then Jungian synchronicities, then seemingly 'external superhuman beings', who are really masks of the greater selves we are evolving into..." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger'].

Question. Why is the subject of 'psychology' used as this subjects main teaching aid?

"...Enquiry is everything...'' = Objectivity. Benefits of.

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


Does he talk/sing from his gut or piss sack? Or is that only reserved for someone's  ''fcking stereo equipment''? A sincere apology or a smirky arse one?

An alternative? view..."Some of the intensified experiences were ''merely subjective,'' but nonetheless tremendously important to the author, in ways that even the skeptic would admit were non - pathological. For instance, on one occasion, the entity spoke directly, in a melodious and angelic voice, to say: 'They live happiest who have forgiven most.' This is rather trite, one admits; all the major religions preach forgiveness. What was impressive was {A} the timing - the struggling writer was very pissed off, that week, at certain publishers who were slow in paying monies owed; and {B} - the pragmatic emphasis, tailored to the Libertarian's hedonic philosophy at the time. It did not say, 'Forgive, because god demands it'; it said, 'Forgive, and you will be happier.' The Libertarian Hedonist tried it, and still is trying it, and it works." [Same book].

Practical example of such..."The Abyss represents a significant event in the life of the 'magician-mystic'. As such, it is a culmination of thousands of hours of work towards its attainment. It is not a vision, nor can it be visualised. Nor can it be simply attained by taking the 'Oath of the Abyss' at any moment of your life. It is an emergent property of a fundamental re-orientation of awareness in relation to the universe, given divine grace by its reception within the individual. It is the moment to which the HGA ['Higher Guardian Angel' i.e., as one example - a seraph?] designs to lead us, at which point it too vanishes, as it was never there. The HGA is the edge of light, the bridge, interface, component of awareness that arises from the shadow of the abyss - the amaneusis of the soul. When the remembrance of the true state is attained the light is entered and no longer casts a shadow nor has an edge {'ridge'?}." [Same book. Emphasis, this readers].

''re-orientation'' = H/V link? and/or 180 and/or semicircle?

Question. Where would that be represented within {say} a landscape?

Summary: ''...the bridge," - in relation to a ''gap'' filled in by a [eureka?] moment. Representation of. ''Magical'' up to that point, i.e.,a potential yet to be realized. ''Mystical'' - once realized. Those two words ''magical/mystical'' only used because of the subject matter {i.e.,'spiritual' stuff}. That realization of something - however- is universal - regardless of subject [i.e.,by study] - of which those ''thousands of hours'' can also represent - depending on the individual. Some sooner, some later depending on ones interest in subject material. Yes or No?

Think about the above in relation to a ''connectedness'' because of the ''divine bit''. That universal {primary? and/or ''Real'' - see below} - principle, that all attempt to define in one form or another. From the dawn of human kind. From when man/woman first began an attempt to define themselves within the whole. That development ongoing, throughout the ages {eons?} up to the present time.

Understanding the above -defines the following - or at least gives one the chance to...

Arachne rising?

''The incribed list of kings {at Abydos} is found in the Mortuary Temple of Seti I, on the right wall of the passage coming from the second Hypostyle Hall, referred to as the Gallery of Lists. Seti I is on the left wearing the blue crown, holding a censor in one hand and gesturing towards the right with the other. In front of him, young prince Ramesses is shown holding a papyrus to read from with an accompanying text before him: Reciting praises by the hereditary prince; the eldest, of his body, his beloved (son), Ramesses, justified, true of voice.'' SIDE NOTE: "When we read a story, we inhabit it. The covers of the book are like a roof and four walls. What will happen next will take place within the four walls of the story. And this is possible because the stories voice makes everything its own." [John Berger].
Continued: ''The text runs in six vertical columns above Ramesses, and is the speech given by Seti I: Words spoken by King Menmaatra. Bringing the god to his food offering, the making of offerings for the kings of Upper and Lower Egypt. Greetings to thee, Ptah Sokar, who is South-of-His Wall! Come, that I may make for thee these (things) which Horus made for his father Osiris.
The first fiftysix names shows an orderly progression of legitime rulers of Memphis. The kings who are not included are those whose rule over the Two Lands is questioned or who had some measure of  political/religious bias towards them, for example, not ruling from Memphis. The list consists of three rows of thirtyeight cartouches on each row. The upper two rows contain names of the ancestral kings, while the third row repeats Seti I’s throne- and birth-names. In all,  seventysix kings are mentioned. The hieroglyphics are read from left to right, the upper row is read before the lower. The cartouches of the kings are preceded by the words n nisu, which translates as "To king.....". The third row with Seti’s names is preceded by "By the gift of....." Question. Any GAPS real or otherwise?


"This triune principle being wholly spiritual...And it is complete in itself...Beyond it stretches what is called The Abyss. This doctrine is very difficult to explain; but it corresponds more or less to the 'gap' in thought between the Real, which is ideal, and the UNreal, {physical world?} which is actual. In the Abyss, all things exist...but are without any possible meaning {until 'manifested'. This readers input}. Hence the final sentence..."for they lack the substratum of spiritual Reality." [Extract from the book 'Little Essays Toward Truth' by A. Crowley].

''UNreal'' could also be defined as 'cause and effect' without the divine bit {i.e.,UNmanifested}. That link to the subject of Astrology {i.e.,in the 'real' sense of the word - once the 'divine bit' is added and/or 'activated' i.e.,'manifested' } - Its true meaning and purpose. Relative to an understanding, that is - 'per' individual. Enlarged elsewhere.

Or, { in a more abstract sense?}... "The 'self' is the individual's center of consciousness. The 'self' is the Cosmic mind. In Idealism, the self is not the originator of its own consciousness, as it is in materialism, but 'borrows' consciousness from the 'self'. 'The self' is sometimes conceived of as undifferentiated, and sometimes its thoughts are experienced as 'gods' or 'angels'. Lorna Byrne has told me that she sometimes sees all angels 'connected to god' by a cord." [Chapter twenty, 'The Sacred History'].

Or by ''live coals''? Try 'Seraph'. 4:1

Understanding that basic framework, together with its most common 'theme' clarifies; if only for this reader; such 'statements'. What the author defines throughout the same book, as "mind before matter", [in relation to primary / secondary. Explained within].

The real questions however are the usual ones - fact or fiction - A possibility or not?

A working example: The King and Queen will not be presented with dead ducks when they arrive in Jersey next week – with locally laid eggs set to be used in place of the traditional gift during the environmentally-themed visit.

It has been confirmed that, in a break from tradition, King Charles III will be presented with two locally laid duck eggs when he arrives in Jersey on Monday 15 July.

The date has been confirmed as a public holiday for islanders following a vote in the States Assembly. The visit will mark the first time in 19 years that the island has played host to a reigning monarch. During previous visits to the island, Queen Elizabeth II was presented with two dead female dabbling ducks {surface eaters} - on a silver platter.

Sutton Hoo purse clasp: Wolfs / eagles and ducks.

The six seigneurs of Jersey have been giving British royalty the same present for 800 years as an obscure act of homage to the successors of William the Conqueror, who was the last man from their side of the Channel to beat the English. But this year, locally laid duck eggs will instead be used to provide a symbol of sustenance. The decision to replace the dead ducks with duck eggs is understood to have been taken in consultation with the Palace in recognition of changing times. The King is also due to receive another gift more in-keeping with traditionseven Jersey cows. The gifts align with the wider eco-focus of Monday's visit, which will see the Royals attend a 'Jersey Expo' at the Weighbridge.



Khnum is the soul of Shu. {P44 'Ancient Egypt' / July-August 2023}.

Among those exhibiting will be the Jersey Beekeepers' Association and Jersey Dairy, alongside other members of the agricultural and aquaculture communities. The iconic Jersey potato, the Jersey Royal, will be a key feature alongside other Genuine Jersey produce, including Jersey Sea Salt. The King and Queen, who will later attend a tea party with islanders, will also hear about the island's climate, energy, and offshore wind farm plans, transport and natural environment.

Jersey will get a bank holiday when King Charles III and Queen Camilla visit the Channel Islands next month after politicians overwhelmingly backed the plans in the States Assembly this morning. Members voted by 36 votes to three in favour of the ministerial proposal for the holiday to coincide with the royal visit on Monday 15 July.


Giving directions?

The Royal Visit is set to include a special Sitting of the States Assembly and the Royal Court in the Royal Square followed by a large-scale, open-air exposition in the vicinity of Weighbridge Place and Liberation Square that will showcase the best of Jersey.

Guernsey confirmed last week that a public holiday will be held to mark the visit of Their Majesties to the island on the following day, Tuesday 16 July.


AND/OR: Jersey (/ˈɜːrzi/ JUR-zee; Jèrriais: Jèrri [ʒɛri]), officially known as the Bailiwick of Jersey,[d][12][13][14] is an island country and self-governing British Crown Dependency near the coast of north-west France.[15][16][17] It is the largest of the Channel Islands and is 14 miles (23 km) from the Cotentin Peninsula in Normandy.[18] The Bailiwick consists of the main island of Jersey and some surrounding uninhabited islands and rocks including Les Dirouilles, Les Écréhous, Les Minquiers, and Les Pierres de Lecq.[19]

Jersey was part of the Duchy of Normandy, whose dukes became kings of England from 1066. After Normandy was lost by the kings of England in the 13th century, and the ducal title surrendered to France, Jersey remained loyal to the English Crown, though it never became part of the Kingdom of England.

To many lagers?

A bailiwick (/ˈblɪwɪk/)[1] is usually the area of jurisdiction of a bailiff, and once also applied to territories in which a privately appointed bailiff exercised the sheriff's functions under a royal or imperial writ.

In English, the original French bailie combined with -wic, the Anglo-Saxon suffix (meaning a village) to produce a term meaning literally 'bailiff's village'—the original geographic scope of a bailiwick. In the 19th century, it was absorbed into American English as a metaphor for a sphere of knowledge or activity.

The term can also be used colloquially to mean 'one's area of expertise'


[7]. ’King’ of the ‘animals’ = Cernuous = Highest ‘point’ in lowest division, i.e., Borderline [ Key ] between higher/lower mysteries. Common parlance 'leading a duck to water'. Think about it, in relation to a 'return' journey by way of a 'medium', i.e., water, [symbolism of]. "The great goddess sometimes has as her bird of epiphany, a swan, a goose or a duck."[ 'The Riddle of the Sphinx']. Recall the ''animals'' on the base of those 'T' shaped pillars.

'Fire' / Soul?

The idiom “cook someone’s goose” means to do something that spoils someone’s plans and prevents them from succeeding. The underlying idea behind this phrase seems to be that a goose was cherished and fattened up for a special occasion. Therefore, cooking it prematurely would spoil the plans for a feast. For example, if you tell someone that you can’t help them, you’re essentially “cooking their goose.”

Like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem, like a bride bedecked with her jewels. Nations shall behold your vindication, and all kings, your glory. You shall be called by a new name, pronounced by the mouth of the Lord. You shall be glorious. Glorious crown in the HAND of the lord. A royal diadem held by your god.' This is what is awaiting us. This is what Mary opens us up to, as the lord brings her to him and holds her, as it says - as the Queen dressed in gold on my right, as it says in the Psalms.... In the Liturgy  of the Assumption of Mary into heaven it says: in this place the Virgin Mother of god was assumed into heaven as an image of the churches coming to perfection and as a sign of hope and comfort for all pilgrims. Rightly, that you would not allow her to see the corruption of the tomb since from her own body, she marvellously brought forth your incarnate son, the author of life."

''The heliacal rising (/hɪˈl.əkəl/ hih-LY-ə-kəl)[1][2][3] or star rise of a star occurs annually, or the similar phenomenon of a planet, when it first becomes visible above the eastern horizon at dawn just before sunrise (thus becoming "the morning star") after a complete orbit of the earth around the sun.[4] Historically, the most important such rising is that of Sirius, which was an important feature of the Egyptian calendar and astronomical development. The rising of the Pleiades heralded the start of the Ancient Greek sailing season, using celestial navigation.[5], as well as the farming season (attested by Hesiod in his Works and Days).''

We have seen it on the ceiling of the Hotel Lallemant and among the panels of the alchemical stove of Winterthur. It also occupies one of the squares of the Game of the Goose, a popular representation of the labyrinth of the secret Art and collection of the main hieroglyphs of the Great Work....The Game of the Goose also sounds like the Game of the Law in French - could be compared to 'snakes and ladders'. There is a spiral drawn on a board resembling the labyrinth on the floor of the Cathedral of Chartres - with 63 boxes. The idea is to get to the center of the spiral.''

From a different perspective: "The Vikings played a variety of board games, including Hnefatafl, which was a war strategy game similar to chess. The game was played on a square board with 64 squares arranged in an 8x8 grid 1The objective of the game was to capture the king game piece 2. You can draw a grid on a piece of paper and use anything you have to hand as counters! At the start of the game, you have a king on his throne in the center of the board surrounded by 12 defenders. On each edge, you have 5 attackers and then a 6th in the middle of the next row for a total of 'twentyfour'. Pieces can move any number of squares up/down or side to side but not diagonally – like the rook in chess. The attackers’ job is to capture the king. Defenders have to protect the king and give it safe passage to a corner square. You capture your opponent’s pieces by sandwiching them between two of your own. To capture the king, attackers have to surround him."

And/or: ''The silver birch is a medium-sized deciduous tree that owes its common name to the white peeling bark on the trunk. The twigs are slender and often pendulous and the leaves are roughly triangular with doubly serrate margins and turn yellow and brown in autumn before they fall. The flowers are catkins and the light, winged seeds get widely scattered by the wind. The silver birch is a hardy tree, a pioneer species, and one of the first trees to appear on bare or fire-swept land. Many species of birds and animals are found in birch woodland, the tree supports a wide range of insects and the light shade it casts allows shrubby and other plants to grow beneath its canopy. It is planted decoratively in parks and gardens and is used for forest products such as joinery timber, firewood, tanning, racecourse jumps, and brooms. Various parts of the tree are used in traditional medicine and the bark contains triterpenes, which have been shown to have medicinal properties.''

Synchronistic example? {i.e.,if only in the 'ritual' sense of the word}: "At this crucial point Roma departed from her script to pick up on a spontaneous vision of a triangle of power between a Smith, a Child of Light, and a Rose and Lily wand, at which Bob felt as if a bag had suddenly been lifted from his head {''basket'' / 'Athene' links?}. At the previous years events he had received a firm 'instruction' to ''seek the mysterious Abbey and enter therein'' and later was given a ritual by those in the 'Abbey' to awaken the Smith at Wayland's Smithy.

"The 'child' motif represents not only something that existed in the distant past, but also something that exists now; that is to say; it is not just a vestige but a system functioning in the present whose purpose is to compensate or correct, in a meaningful manner, the inevitable one-sidedness and 'extravagances' of the conscious mind. It is the nature of the conscious mind to concentrate on relatively few contents and to raise them to the highest pitch of clarity. A necessary result and precondition is the exclusion of other potential contents of consciousness. The exclusion is bound to bring about a certain one-sidedness...The more he trains his will in this one-sidedness the more he gets lost and gets further from the laws and roots of his becomes backward {'Orion'? as a means....}.....which piles up a Promethean debt which has to be paid off from time to time {Karma?}…."

A {working?} example - that very first one? "A conjunction of Venus and Mars as they are setting occurs in Book 21, when: 'Queen Hera saw that vixen Aphrodite taking Ares through the crowd out of the battle'. The Moon and Venus were in the sky just before the lunar eclipse during the famous seduction of Zeus, when Hera tried to enlist the help of the goddess of beauty: 'My dear child, will you do what i am going to ask of you, or will you refuse me because you are angry at my being on the Greek side while you are on the Trojan?' Venus then disappeared from the evening sky and the Moon {Hera} took central stage when 'Aphrodite now went back into the house of Zeus, while Hera darted down from the summits of Olympus'." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

And/or: ''April 15 {'fifteen'} was an unseasonably warm day in New Glarus, Wisconsin. A 40-minute drive southwest of Madison, the state’s capital, New Glarus doesn’t look like many small towns in America. Its tiny downtown is laden with Swiss names, flags, and chalet-style architecture. Everyone in town hoped the nice weather would stay, but there was only one way to know for sure—burn a giant snowman effigy (naturally). Villagers gathered at a winery on the outskirts of town to hold the centuries-old Swiss ritual: the burning of the Bӧӧgg (pronounced BOOg). Like Groundhog’s Day, the Bӧӧgg’s fiery demise is supposed to predict the amount of cold weather left to endure. And for the first time in this small town, a Bӧӧgg is about to get lit.

Standing in an empty field down a small hill from the vineyard’s winery building, near the still bare grapevines, is the Bӧӧgg. It’s a lumpy white fabric snowman filled with hay and wedged on a metal pole with a handcrafted face cut from felt, a pipe made from a cardboard paper towel tube, and a hat fashioned out of a wicker basket. His feet are surrounded by a pile of firewood. The Bӧӧgg has a toothy grin and looks as holly jolly as can be considering it won’t be long till the effigy meets an explosive end—the five-foot-tall Bӧӧgg’s head is stuffed with fireworks.

'Long'wood? Seated /UPright?

Just before 4 p.m., Greg Long, one of the directors of the Swiss Center of North America who constructed the smiling snowman effigy, and a friend clang large cowbells—it’s almost time. Another person cracks a whip, which is meant to scare away winter spirits. Then two men in traditional Swiss garb flank the Bӧӧgg and blast a mournful tune through a pair of 12-foot-long alphorns. A crowd of about 30 people gather in the field, while dozens more watch from the winery’s patio on top of the hill, most enjoying a glass of wine or a beer. Long and his friends kneel and use a utility lighter to ignite the firewood at the Bӧӧgg’s feet. The crowd murmurs in anticipation as smoke begins to billow.

In Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city, the Bӧӧgg burning is part of Sechselӓuten, which translates to the “six o’clock ringing of the bells.” The celebration dates back to at least 1525, though the Bӧӧgg has likely deeper roots in pagan rituals once used to banish winter. Sechselӓuten was a forerunner to daylight savings, marking the end of the workday as 6 p.m. instead of five, and is celebrated on the third Monday in April. Zurich’s guilds have always organized the festival, some of which date back to 1336, such as the Zunft zur Schmiden, a guild of blacksmiths, and Zunft zum Widder, the Guild of the Ram, which represents butchers and livestock dealers.

Continued: ''The Aegean Sea[a] (Greek: Αιγαίο Πέλαγος: "Egéo Pélagos", Turkish: "Ege Denizi" or "Adalar Denizi") is an elongated {'T'?}  embayment of the Mediterranean Sea between Europe and Asia. It is located between the Balkans and Anatolia, and covers an area of some 215,000 square kilometres.[3] In the north, the Aegean is connected to the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea by the straits of the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus. The Aegean Islands are located within the sea and some bound it on its southern periphery, including Crete and Rhodes.

Square on?

Late Latin authors referred the name Aegaeus to Aegeus, who was said to have jumped into that sea to drown himself (rather than throwing himself from the Athenian acropolis, as told by some Greek authors). He was the father of Theseus, the mythical king and founder-hero of Athens. Aegeus had told Theseus to put up white sails when returning if he was successful in killing the Minotaur. When Theseus returned, he forgot these instructions, and Aegeus thinking his son to have died then drowned himself in the sea.[5]

In the South Slavic languages, the Aegean is called White Sea (Bulgarian: Бяло море, romanizedByalo more; Macedonian: Бело море, romanizedBelo more; Serbo-Croatian: Belo more / Бело море).[6] The Turkish name for the sea is Ege Denizi, derived from the Greek name.''
