Esotericism Part 1




Have you ever considered the subject… Esotericism? Common name…'Old religion'. What exactly is it? Who writes it? For what reason? Fame, fortune? None seem to be in the one thousand let alone the one hundred rich list; or are interviewed on any popular talk shows. Narcissism / Self indulgence? The want/need to be known as informed persons in a so called 'specialist' subject? One or two authors possibly, but all of them? Highly unlikely.

Especially when you take into account the length of time this subject was first made aware of. From the 'oral tradition' up to and including the present time. So what is it that they think they know that they feel compelled to spend the time and effort not to mention the costs to publish. No credit card numbers nor membership requirements requested.

So what is it that they think they know that they want the rest of us to read? Especially when quite a few seem to be written in a 'form' that at best can only be described as 'abstract' and at worse garbage - {depending; like any other subject; on whether there good at explaining their chose of interest or not}. Why? Why go to all that time and effort. For what purpose. Boredom?

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

These are the questions this reader asked himself several years ago. Since then this reader has read and amassed what can only be described as an 'Esoteric collection'. Books range from the obvious. All forms of religion. To the not so obvious, such as the Sciences, Mythology, Astronomy, Archaeoastronomy, Astrology, [Synchronistic link. Explained elsewhere]. Psychology and Archaeology. It would seem that all subjects and professions have their Esoteric side. Including the world of fairy stories. Yes I did say fairy stories, [enlarged elsewhere]. In other words in all walks of life and professions some are aware of this subject others are not. Including that most obvious of all subjects. The 'religious’ one. Represented as 'Exoteric', [standard / orthodox information] relation to this subject...'Esoteric'. So called secret / 'hidden' information, underlying all religions.

As one example: Amun = ''hidden''.

move3Is not all information within all subjects 'hidden' until we become, usually, through the education system,  aware of them for it then to become a 'known' quantity. i.e., Knowledge. Same thing...different subject, i.e., this subject normally refers to that same process as unaware / unknown to aware / known and / or invisible to something now visible. In relation to its contents.

Is not knowledge 'power'? {represented with the ''sun''}.


"Whatever is hidden, is meant to be disclosed". [The 'Nazarene'].

"Let him who seeks, continue seeking until he finds. When he finds he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled he will be astonished, and he will 'rule' over all." [ The 'Nazarene' from, The Gospel of Thomas].

Question. Does that 'description' not apply to any subject material - that has to be understood? Obstacles overcome during a learning process?

 River cataracts? Enlarged elsewhere.

All the above subjects and more have common themes throughout their esoteric side. Key words/ideas and opinions that are constant throughout all esoteric literature. Regardless of time or culture. From its 'beginning' to the present date.

thinkAlso important at the outset is to understand the importance of being objective to the enclosed as much as one can. Looking from the outside in. To be impartial. To understand the subject. Nothing more. To gain an understanding of the subject by questions and objective analysis. By weighing up all the available informationin order to gain some logic from it. Some sense from it. Should there be any. That subject that not only according to some, may have been the possible inspiration to the 'collective' effort, i.e., precursor to civilizations. But for some reason has links to many other subjects. Why?

The attempt to understand the subject explains why.

A working example: ''Such sites as Seahenge and Flag Fen uproots historical assumptions of Bronze Age communities - far from being primitive tribes - they knew how to organize themselves in large numbers.....Thats why such sites were important to people. It gave them structure and MEANING'' ['Blowing Up History: Secrets of Seahenge' / S.8 E.6].

In a different form.

''The site consisted of an outer ring comprising fifty-five small split oak trunks forming a roughly circular enclosure around 7 by 6 metres (23 by 20 ft). Rather than being placed in individual holes, the timbers had been arranged around a circular construction trench. Their split sides faced inwards and their bark faced outwards (with one exception where the opposite is the case). One of the trunks on the south western side had a narrow Y fork in it, permitting access to the central area. Another post had been placed outside this entrance, which would have prevented anyone from seeing inside. The timbers were set in ground to a depth of 1 metre (3 ft 3 in) from the contemporary surface although how far they originally extended upwards is not known. In the centre of the ring was a large inverted oak stump. [4] At the time of building, the site was surrounded by salt marshes.[5]

Side note: ''The symbol for the Japanese currency is based on the letter Y.'' ['The Chase' / S.15 E.16].

Inward or Outward?

''One road leads inwards, to the maze at the heart of our inner castle, the other road, scattered with jewels and the remains of burnt out failures, leads to the world of every day toil and achievement. You are standing at that crossroads, and guilded by whatever steps you may have already taken on both of those ways, now you may go forward on your chosen path.'' [Final paragraph 'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / M. Green].

Upstream or Downstream?

Refresher: ''East is a beginning. West its ending.''


Side note: ''The earliest surviving image of Mary Magdalene shows her with two other female figures - moving towards a large sarcophagus - dressed like brides - holding burning torches as they bring light to where Christ is buried.'' [Page 88 'Egypt's Anointing Mysteries' / A. Roberts].

Fork in the road?

''The pagan huts {'Roundhouses'} are very circular with a flatish roof. They were laid out so that the main doorway faces south towards the days sunlight. The day is organised around the shape of the house. The eastern side of the house is where they slept. Thats the night-time of the house. Thats where all the burials are found. On the west side of the house you have the daytime side. In the center is the hearth...'' ['Blowing Up Britain: Secrets of Seahenge'].

Side note: The English word 'focus' comes from the Latin for 'fireplace'. ['The Chase' / ITV / 31.1.22].

Question. Kings Chamber = 'mantle' of the Gt. Pyramid?

And/or: ''A yad (Hebrew: יד, literally "hand"; Yiddish: האַנט hant) is a Jewish ritual pointer, popularly known as a Torah pointer, used by the reader to follow the text during the Torah reading from the parchment Torah scrolls. It is often shaped like a long rod, capped by a small hand with its index finger pointing from it.''

N.B. The mantle {of a fireplace?} can be seen within the 'treasures' of Tutankhamun.

A beginning or end?

''Although the structure's existence had been common knowledge amongst locals for several decades, Seahenge received its name from the press in 1998, who named it after the more famous prehistoric structure Stonehenge in Wiltshire, and was picked up by the local and national media, inducing a great deal of publicity around its excavation. This was only increased due to the protests held against the excavation by both locals, who wanted it to remain as a tourist site, and Neopagans, who believed that the removal of the structure was an insult to the religious beliefs of its original builders, among other concerns.'' [Wiki].

A work in progress: ''Scholars have long believed that primary states only arose in Egypt, Mesopotania, the Indus Valley, China, Mesoamerica, and the Andes. In these regions, smaller societies were consolidated under a central power, often headed by a king who claimed divine origin....No written records were left behind...Thus, archaeologists have no primary sources to help them understand these watershed events {'floods'?}. - which were arguably as consequential as the invention of agriculture.'' [Chapter headed 'Rise of the Kings of Tonga' / 'Archaeology' : July/August: 2021].

In other words an exercise In understanding the 'mind set' of those who do attempt to understand it.

Question. Anthropology?

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

This reader would like to share some of those common factors/opinions for reasons that have been mentioned above. Bear with it. It may be beneficial to all parties. All 'parties' that is, that are looking for nothing more, than plain facts. Those 'plain' facts that are presented within this web page without the 'Gloss'. If your primary need is to have what ever information you search or seek for, presented within a glossy presentation, then this... 'matter of fact-ly'... web page, may not be for you.

1... All Imply not only is there the strong possibility that 'life' carries on, but it also has the potential, of a deliberate 'purpose'. The word 'God' is used only in this context. It along with most of the other common themes is presented symbolically.

Symbolism is at the core of the subject. N.B. Don't let that word intimidate. At the end of the day, that is all it is...A word. Those 'Words' however ['keys'], that help in unlocking the overall subject.

In other words, symbolic in the sense, that each symbol [key] is a representation of something. It is up the reader to establish what that something is.

"In the beginning was the Word, {'arcana'?} - and the 'Word' was with 'god', and the Word was god".

Find ''logos'' [use the search box]....before those first impressions suggest something else.

Remember we are investigating a - MIND SET.

A working example: ''These rites, these dogmas, often conceal ideas once reserved for a small number of initiates; and the secret of these ideas, though buried with them, can be rediscovered by those who study in depth all the types of teachings remaining of the ancient beliefs and the ceremonies they prescribed. Hence, a science, given the name of 'the symbolic' - proposes to uncover what was hidden behind such diverse emblems.'' [Introduction 'The Temple In Man' / R. Schwaller de Lubicz].

Question. What's he pulling? 'Handle' on the moment?

Another word to define the same could be 'image'. Whatever we think about - day by day - moment by moment- we sometimes define; do we not; with images. We 'picture' what we think. The only difference is; this subject defines a deeper meaning to those pictures {'archetypes' i.e.,personal ones}. Understanding that universal framework defines that sentence. Gives it a plausible 'logic' before we ask those deeper personnel questions. Fact or fiction; a possibility or not?

'Bear with it'...

A working example: ''.....the sack is a bearskin. It is not only a rare archaic feature, but also a partial revelation of the containers purpose. All people living among bears {especially in wooded areas} were bound to know of the close relationship between bears and honey. The bear is the honey-eating animal par excellence....In Delphi as well as elsewhere, Dionysos took the place of an older version of indestructible life, which in a sense he already was {see 'Help' section} - although in relation to 'honey' rather than 'wine'...." [Pages 48/9 'Dionysos' / C. Kerenyi].


Ambrosia = ''Food of the Gods'' - as a means....?

Whats in the bag?

And/or: ''Freedom from load'' was a phrase much used by Margaret's crowd in the 1920's. It meant not dwelling upon or carrying around heavy psychological or emotional baggage.'' [Page 240 'A Mythic Life'].

To many lagers?

"You can only go half way into the darkest forest; then you are coming out the other side." Chinese proverb.

''The best way out is always through." Robert Frost. ['Alone' / History Channel].

Side note: One of the two pillars standing outside non other than Solomon's temple = ''to establish''. Coincidence or a ''meaningful one''?

Question. To establish what?

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

As one example: ''The Welsh word for 'meaning' is simply ystyr - related to the Latin historia: story, history. The root signifies ''knowing, learned, wise man, judge {i.e., in ancient Egypt 'judges'' had the logo of the blue Jackal. Recall the Book of Judges i.e., 7th Book. What relation to both? A fullness?}. [Foreward 'A Celtic Quest' / John Layard].

Side note: Amenhotep III = blue crown.

Refresher: "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." Coincidence or a meaningful one? Enlarged elsewhere.


Question. Was there a supernova at the time of Amenhotep?

First Place of Emergence? {i.e., Sipapuni}. Question. Any ''blue''?

Where the 'grass' is greener?

And/or: ''Living near the Sipapuni, Masau'u was, of course, the first entity encountered upon their emergence. To test the various tribes wisdom, he laid out different types of corn EARS - and had them each choose one. The Navajo quickly choose the yellow long eared one. Other tribes such as the Sioux, the Comanches, the Apaches, the Supais, and the Utes greedily choose other colours while the Hopi were left with the smallest blue ear of corn. In reality this was a test of humility and the ability to face adversity. After all there was a long journey ahead....They were not to stop in one place for too long. After breaking their pots to serve as a marker of their continuing presence, they were to move on, always searching for the center of the world, the destination of their journey.'' [Page 18 'The Orion Zone' / G. A. David].

Benjamin tribe of Israel?

This subject separates itself from the word 'religion' or at least what most people perceive that word to mean. Hence the distinction between Exoteric / Esoteric. 'Symbolism' allows the reader to get a general idea of the 'esoteric' side of the subject. That leads to a certain logic about the subject and its importance [ in their opinion, by way of, implication] each individual. Rather than just blind 'faith and hope'.

Think about it. If life continues, there has to be a logic to it. There has to be reason to it, other than by- way - of, the 'God' word. This subject explains what those possible reasons could be.

That general idea that helps to understand the contents of a subject that at the outset are unknown quantities...'Speculative'. To try and attain substance from an intangible. Something not visible. Something that cannot be examined directly. The intangible/speculation of the subject is..."Does/does not life continue?" and if so why. What are those possibilities? It is not meant to be taken as an exact science or cult or religion. How can it. No proven facts, at least not for the beginner/student or apprentice of the subject are available.

Six runs.

All subjects have a basic/beginners level. This one’s no different. The word 'apprentice' may mean something different to some individuals considering the subject matter. Background music to the twilight zone may be heard. Or maybe visions of doing a possible 'wheelie' upon a broomstick may be encroaching on ones imagination…simply because of the environment we live in. That same environment that can have a bearing on ones physical evolution can also have 'an effect' on what is generally termed by these authors as the 'spiritual one'. Not one of these authors however indicate that evolution took place in 'six days'. That belongs to the exo..teric division; and only then to a minority. That same minority that gets smaller each year. Six is symbolic of something else, [ Explained elsewhere]. It represents something else. Together within such books as the... 'Kabbalah and the Age of the Universe'. A. Kaplan. Or indicative, by the word 'eons', as mentioned in the Quran. Presently brought up to date by the author J. Black, ['Secret/Sacred History of the World'] . Showing how those 'six days' when understood correctly agree with evolution's understanding of same.

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

2x2x2 ?


Spirit or soul?

''According to to one numerological reckoning, thirtythree is 3+3, which equals six. Symbolic of ambivalence and equilibrium, six comprises of the union of the two triangles {of fire and water} and hence signifies the human soul. The Greeks regarded it as the symbol of the hermaphrodite. It corresponds to the six directions of space {two for each dimension}, and to the cessation of movement {since the 'creation' took 6 days}....Six is the number of four cardinal directions plus the vertical zenith and nadir....It is the number of the material world, therefore of time and space....It is the number chosen by the Egyptians to symbolise temporal and spacial phenomena.'' [Page 254 'The Orion Zone' / G. A. David].

The 'middle' Way.

Working example: ''Amarna was an elongated {'double'?} city running north - south, and sandwiched between the River Nile to the west and limestone cliffs to the east.....The 'boundaries' of which were established in his regnal year six whereby an 'oath of dedication was sworn to establish the limits of a new royal city'.....The Central City, the religious and administrative heart of Amarna, was a carefully planned zone which included the Great and the Small Aten temple precincts {'Duality' link}....Thutmose {'creator' of the Nefertiti bust} lived in the S/E corner of the southern suburb....'' [Pages 9/29 'The Face of Nefertiti' / J. Tyldesley].

And/or: ''The expanded version of her name became the universal way of denoting the queen from around year 6 onwards. Its iconography is odd, with the name of the god Aten reversed at the front  of the cartouche, suggesting that the cartouche should be read outward from the nfr signs in the center, establishing the two parts as separate names {'new ones'?}, rather than 'Neferneferuaten' being simply an epithet appended to the queen's original name. This is confirmed in rare readings that place the gods name in the center.'' [Page 26 'Nefertiti' / A. Dodson].

Clockwise / Anticlockwise?

18912836-young-man-in-autumn-parkHence the link to Objectivity. To understand a subject. Nothing else. To evaluate it in order to gain some substance from it. To work through those 'first impressions' in order to understand a subject that some believe was the very first subject that man/woman went out of their way to understand more than any other in their own day. As proven; some believe; by that earliest of all archaeology sites...Gobekli-tepe. ['S/E' turkey. At least 10000BC. Close to where the biblical 'Abraham' was 'born'].

Question. 'Half' a precession cycle?

Question 2. When would the other half begin?

20/20 Vision?

Side note: ''At the start of the 17th century the world was still fraught with wonders and nothing seemed impossible. In December 1603 there was a conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter, the hour hands of the cosmic clock which usher in new epochs and crumbles old orders. New stars suddenly appeared in the constellations of the Serpent and the Swan, and fears and hopes were rife throughout Europe. In England the long reign of the Tudors came to an end....'' [Page 5 'Robert Fludd' / J. Godwin].

Jupiter/Saturn December 2020?

Side note: ''Astraea's hoped-for return was referred to in a phrase from Virgil's Eclogue IV: "Iam redit et virgo, redeunt Saturnia Regna" (Astraea returns, returns old Saturn's reign).'' [Wiki].

Question. Imhotep link?

From a different perspective i.e., an individual one: ''As the fire burns and transmutes the old, i serve grace.....The fear shivers up my spine and releases through my crown. Sek{h}met growls at the fear, the fear is the death of the truth, the fear is the dark moon where the light fails to shine, this moon is my gift; Khonsu holds the 'divine' in the form of timing, the timing of the ultimate alignment, the timing of the Divine....There is only purr-fection in the light and the shadow....." [Page 105 'Sekhmet: Transformation in the Belly of the Goddess' / N. Scully. Emphasis, this readers].

''Belly'' to enlarge.


Sycamore or Pine?

'T' shaped pillars. ['Dolmen' and 'pillar' ’link. Explained elsewhere]. That each generation buried and then built on top off. Indicating that they too understood the same 'knowledge'. From the first layer ['Primordial mound'] the final one. ['capstone']. A link to what became known later as the 'benbenet' stone or 'godhead'. [Explained elsewhere]. All within the shape of a 'mountain'. A beginning/end. [Alpha/Omega]. Its individual 'physical' representation, being the 'head' of the Sphinx, in relation to its 'body'. Higher over lower. Explained within.


Side note: ''The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth the Second, took place on June 2nd in 1953 - in the Gold-State Coach {i.e., not the 'glass' one} - a few days after the SUMMIT of Mount Everest was completed by Norgay and Hillary - which is the reason why Union flags are flown on public buildings on June 2nd each year.'' ['The Chase' / 2018].

A ''gathering''?

That same 'shape' that the Egyptians used in order to express those same 'ideas'... but now in stone. Complete stone. 'Invisible' {i.e.,UNmanifested} - to something now 'visible' {i.e.,manifested}. From an 'unknown' something now 'known', [Symbolic of]. As a means of making something understood. The implication is; as was quoted at the time, - 'Lost Civilizations'/National Geographic. It was not farming that brought individuals together, i.e., the collective effort. Precursor to 'civilizations'. It was this subject. The same subject that W. Burkert defines as "Religiousness" or M. Eliade as "Wholly other"...In attempting to define the origins of religion. Why? Why the 'Esoteric' and not the 'Exoteric'?

And/or:'' El Qurn (Arabic: القرن lit. "the horn"), is the highest point (420 m) in the Theban Hills, located on the western bank of the Nile, opposite Thebes, modern Luxor. Its ancient name was Ta Dehent, or "the peak."[citation needed] It has an almost pyramidal shape when viewed from the entrance to the Valley of the Kings, and it is for this reason that some Egyptologists believe the valley was chosen as the location of a royal necropolis.''

Fire and water. Spirit /Soul. Which and why?

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it may be with fear, has also given rise to re-ligion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness." [Albert Einstein].

In the spiritual sense of the word?

'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / Marian Green.

Side note: ''The surname Einstein when translated into English means 'One Stone'....'' ['The Chase' / ITV ].

Philosopher {stone}?

Silence is 'golden' ?

The exo..teric of which and only the exo..teric that eventually became known as a state 'religion'. The origin of which began sometime in the fourth century AD. Thousands of years after the origins of its 'alternative twin' {Gemini? i.e., 'joined at the hip' therefore 'thigh' link}. Even though that esoteric 'knowledge' was available at the time. As {later} proven by the omission of the Gnostic gospels. Some bishops understood it. Others did not. As indicated in such books as 'Hidden Wisdom' by R. Smoley. That final vote given to those who did not know, rather than to those who did. In later times, the same, together with the Hebrew 'Old scripture' texts were among those finally chosen, to be a part of the whole. Those writings that were deemed suitable for the masses. Free they assumed...except for those who were aware...of all the Gnostic 'esoteric' literature that some were afraid of...simply because they could not get 'their heads around it'. Or more to the point...did not give themselves the 'time or patience to.'

The result of which began an era in which it was best to condemn rather than condone. Only to be presently/recently brought up to date. By non other than a Chief Rabbi. {Jonathan Sacks. September 2012}. One of the present representatives of the above 'allowable' texts. In a conversation with; even more remarkably; Mr R. Dawkins. That in answer to one of Mr Dawkins questions. He was told quite emphatically. So emphatically it had a Richter scale value of 'four' and was probably heard in Timbuktu. That the bible {in part} was "Symbolic" and was not to be taken literally..."It was heresy! to do so".

As good as any official statement. After all these years and generations...and all due to the determination of all individuals; an 'atheist' [or would that be 'agnostic',i.e.,someone who simply ''does not know''}. Someone with the alternative view. In search of his own answers. Within his own journey. How ironic [or synchronistic]...yet profound was that answer. Finally given/discovered after all these decades. After all those 'passing' generations. To be told that the bible is not what it seems. One could almost feel those proverbial 'walls' falling down. Like the Berlin Wall...or maybe more to the point. The walls of Jericho. {Explained elsewhere}.

N.B. ''Gnostic'' = a 'known' value, i.e., in the 'spiritual' sense of the word.

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

And/or: As one example: ''The Welsh word for meaning is simply ystyr - related to the Latin historia: story, history. The root signifies ''knowing, learned, wise man, judge''....Cyfarwyddyd {meaning 'story'} implies more than than does our word story.....The stem is arwydd, meaning sign, symbol, manifestation.....and it comes from the root ''to see''. So cyfarwyddyd implies guidance, direction, instruction, knowledge.....''  [Foreward 'A Celtic Quest' / John Layard].

Symbolic or Real??

And/or: Recall Jung's quote in the ''Help'' section.

Question. Nothing more than 'images' of the mind?

OR a genuine ''mind set'' ?

Practical example: ''Say what you see'' {'Catchphrase' / ITV}.

'Seeing' is believing?

''I have no aspiration for my account of the Magnum Opus. The great texts of our Philosophy have always been reviled or written off, mocked or misunderstood, by the schoolmen and official scholars, the learned clergy and the scientists, the playwrights and the critics. Nowadays the texts are not only ignored but virtually unheard of. Doubtless, my own contribution will suffer the same fate. It can't be helped. The world has always been intransigent, harder to convert than the metals. And, perhaps after all, the Art has only ever been for those who have eyes to see.'' [Page 20 'Mercurius' / P. Harpur].

'Leap' of faith or an intuitive one?

Refresher: "....the words 'idea', 'wisdom' and 'vision' ALL originate from the common Indo-European root which means ''to see''. An idea is an insight, an inner flash of illumination that can result in 'wisdom'." [From the book 'Alexandria' / Vol 3 ].

From a different perspective:  "Zeus means ''lighting up'' and only later came to mean ''he who illumines.'' [Extract from the book by C. Kerenyi ].

A working example: ''Ra has initiated him in his boat. He has seen the sacredness of the one who is IN his serpent {'mercurius'?}. He has 'seen' Ra in the three forms which he takes....He has adored him in the morning, in this in the name of Khepri; he has praised him at midday, in this his name of Re; he has propitiated him in the evening, in this his name of 'Atum' for ever.'' [Page 21 'Hathor Rising' ].

Continued: Yet another: "....the difference between 'Buddhism' - the religious system of ethics - and Budha: wisdom or knowledge {Vidya} - the faculty of cognizing; from the sanskritt root 'Budh' - ''to know''. [Introduction {xviii} 'The Secret Doctrine' / H. P. Blavatsky].

One cannot help but wonder. That if there had in the past been something equivalent to a government/religious 'spiritual health' warning included on the front/inset cover of that most esteemed and distinguished book...'The Bible'. Such as..."Remember not to be taken literately. Symbolic. For thinking individuals only". Then maybe such conversations may have led to an understanding about what 'religion' really was all about...well before now. Fewer cults? However we all understand the concept of hindsight. Don't we.

The essence of this subject however is that it explains what that symbolism is, IT explains what that symbolism relation to the true meaning of religion. All religions. In relation to each individual.

Especially helpful considering that according to information in the same interview between Sacks and Dawkins. At least 40% still read the bible literally. But even more remarkable...especially with the Chief Rabbi in mind. NO alternative was given. NO one suggested as to how the bible should be read. Or how it is intended to be read. Is it not surprising therefore that individuals do take it literally. What else are we supposed to do? If only that 'spiritual health' warning was given. Then maybe an understanding would by now be well under way as to that books true 'meaning' relation to the reader.

This subject explains what that 'meaning' is. It explains what that 'symbolism' is. Question. Does that therefore imply that there must be more substance to this subject than the Exoteric one? That as the same authors for the reader to decide. That is their journey.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.


Created by mortals or gods? Two steps forward, One back? as a means....

A work in progress: ''The universe is so vast, so incomprehensible, so terrfiying, that i think its so natural to choose to live out our lives totally oblivious to it. Perhaps thats why theres a relief to the rising of the dawn. The brightening sky hides the stars AND the questions that they pose. After all they are the bigger questions. How did the universe come to be? Why are we here?  And how will it all end? We have to FACE those questions if we are ever to aquire a TRULY DEEP understanding of ourselves. You see, astronomy, challenges us. From one perspective we are just grains of sand adrift in an infinite and indifferent ocean.   But from another perspective, we are NATURES most manificent creation. A collection of atoms that can think and wonder about the universe and choose to explore it.....In the quest for answers we are venturing further from  home....With every new observation, every new piece of knowledge, there is the opportunity to aquire a deeper understanding. And, as we answer question after question we get ever closer to being able to tell the greatest story ever told....We have a strange relationship with the stars. Somewhere between awe and indifference....Many ancient cultures deified the sun. They treated it as a god....The modern story, however, as told by scientists -  stretching back 13 billion years to the origin of the universe puts them in the realm of the gods ...out of that first light the first gods emerged...''

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

An imaginary eye or an objective one?

A prophet or an objective forecast?

Continued: ''The cosmic web is the scaffolding of the universe - that spans the void. This web is made mainly of dark matter, a mysterious substance that dominates the universe, although we don't know what it is. One of the great mysteries in modern physics, probably some kind of particle that reacts very weakly with itself and light - which is why we cannot see it i.e., dark matter. But it does influence the universe with its gravity. It was in the dark heart of the cosmic web that gravity began to sculpt the early universe drawing together the two simpliest elements hydrogen and helium, the raw material for the very first stars....The universe was approaching a TURNING POINT because gravity was asserting its grip.....Out of the maelstrom the first gods emerged and there was light.  The stars illuminate the universe, but that is the least interesting thing they do. The thing that makes the universe interesting and gives MEANING to it is life ...and life is just chemistry...The only thing that existed before the stars was hydrogen and helium....So without the stars the universe would be uninteresting  and MEANINGLESS.....We don't need to invent imaginary gods to explain the universe, we can replace them with the real thing.'' ['Universe: The Sun: God Star' / B. COX /  BBC 2/ 27.10.21].

Is he flying the flag for science or just his personal one?

Imhotep with book on subject material - that first YET last one.

''The moral of the story is this: understanding the book of nature is hard, but the more of nature we observe the more chance we have of finishing the book. Now the strangest objects in nature by far are Black Holes, so i suppose its not surprising that by peering over the horizon and into the darkness we get a glimpse of something deeply hidden - the underlying structure of reality itself. So if we want to understand the meaning of it all we can't restrict ourselves to the intellectually safe confines of our planet, we have to look out there to the universe beyond.'' [B. Cox].

Question. Does his interest in HIS subject make him religious? He talks as though it does. Chip on the 'shoulder'? An angst about something? THIS subject has a remedy for it.

Strangest subject?

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

Horus IN/OF the ''horizon''?

Past /Present. Inward / Outward?

Today / Tomorrow?

And/or: ''I think we all must wonder what is the meaning of it all? What does it mean to be human? Why do we exist?  Why does anything exist at all? These may not sound like scientific questions. They sound like questions for philosophy or theology even. But i think they are scientific questions because they are questions about NATURE, questions about the universe, and to understand the universe one has to observe it.....The lesson to me is clear, we wont answer the deepest questions by being introverted, by looking inwards. We will answer them by lifting our gaze above the HORIZON and looking outwards into the universe beyond the stars. We used to look to the sky and see only questions. Now, we are beginning to see answers.'' [ 'Universe: The Big Bang: Before the Dawn' / BBC 2 / 1.12.21].

This subject also looks for those answers: ''Since the dawn of human thought - before the written word came into common use.''

Refresher: ''To find the 'grail' ask the right question.''

Question. Regardless of subject. Is any method not a good method - if it leads to answers?

Neils Bohr for a more up-to-date practical example {3:12}.

Flat top to chin = triangular in shape = 'Water/Earth' symbol. Reverse it = 'fire/Air' symbol. Recall the Hebrew symbol. And/or: ''All cultures borrowed from the Egyptians.''

REFRESHER: ''The Swan is white without spot.'' Question Any swans in Egypt? What would they use instead?

A working example: ''The boundary stelea originally comprised a single pair on the east bank, marking northern and southern limits of the New City {Amarna, i.e., 'Horizon of the Aten'} - dated to IV prt 13 in YEAR 5.....In their texts, it is stated that the king stood at a particular spot at the sight chosen for Akhet-Aten....He then made a proclamation to the assembly of courtiers. This established the city on a site {'spot'} HE had found {'new name'?}: ''NOT being the property of a god, nor being the property of a goddess, NOR being the property of a ruler, nor being the property of a female ruler, NOR being the property of any people able to lay claim to it.'' The Stelae included a scene of the king, queen and Meryetaten {eldest daughter}... As to why the king was taking this step. The king states: 'Something was worse than those that i HEARD in years 1,2,3 and 4 - by any kings who had assumed the WHITE crown.''. [Page 32 'Nefertiti' / A. Dodson].''

Recall the ''ear tablets'' in the Nile Delta.

And/or: ''The chosen location for the new city was in the MIDDLE of Egypt, across the river from Hermopolis {'8' aspects to it} cult center of Thoth....''

Its symbol being the Long Eared Hare.

Upstream / Downstream a means....?

Blue stones and those Sarsen ones. Spotted?


'Spirit' = YEAR 5? Question. Hearing/Smelling - which and why?

To understand what is being attempted recall J. Campbells quote in relation to: ''Akhenaten's god represented the 'power' of the sun { i.e., energy BOTH pos/neg}, or the light of the sun, RATHER than the sun itself, AND  because the Aten was also associated with ideas of divine kingship.'' ['Nefertiti's Face' / J. Tyldesley].

Mr Cox does the same with Holst 'The Planets' - who was heavily influenced by R. Wagner. Both attempting to understand subject material which Mr Cox has not taken into account within his limited single minded interpretation.

Try ''Newton'' to enlarge in the cosmic/universal SENSE OF THE WORD not just as an individual one.

And/or: ''....Good works of the soul, which cannot be washed or clensed but by Fire. Every mans work shall be made manifest.....because it shall be revealed by fire....the soul shall therefore be purified and clothed.....there may remain some spots that the 'fire' goes on to purge. But what is this fire? It is said in the 4 and 9 of Deuteronomy: 'our god is a consuming fire'....And in the 33 of the Mosaicall Law, it is called the Law of fire, which is in the right hand of god......with sweetness and mercy...'' [Page 11/12 'Discourse on Fire and Salt' / Blaise de Vigenere].

Left or right hand?

''The 'laying of hands' and the stole worn by Catholic priests as a sign of gods grace. The interior conversion of the heart - which is needed for forgivefulness.'' [K. Nichols. Pilgrimage of Grace: Lent 2022: Day 31: The Church of the Primacy of St. Peter: Tabgha/Israel].


Side note: 'Righteousness' = upright {spinal column?} = 90 degress. FROM the top of the spine to the middle of the forehesd = 180?

A working example: ''Unas is well attested by historical sources with three ancient Egyptian King lists dating to the New Kingdom...He occupies the 33rd entry in the Abydos King List - written during the reign of Seti 1....Thirtythree also mentioned in the Aegyptiaca, a history of Egypt written in the 3rd century BC in the reign of Ptolemy II by the Egyptian priest Manetho.'' [Intro 'Pyramid Texts' / W. Budge].

Vein? At which end?

''Surely there is a vein for the Silver, and a place for Gold where they refine it. Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone. He sets an end to darkness, and the shadow of death....Even the waters forgotten of the foot - they are dried up - they are gone away from men. .....Whence then does come wisdom? And where is the place of understanding?  Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air. Destruction and death say: we have heard the fame thereof with our ears. God understands the way thereof, and he knows the place whereof. For he looked to the ends of the earth, and sees under the heavens...'' [Book of Job / extracts from verse twentyeight].

''Living Water''?

''I saw a new heaven and a new earth, and the holy city was of pure gold {talatat's?} - like unto pure glass, and the streets were of shining and replendent gold.'' [Revelations 21].

7x3 ?

The Pilgrims way. Like the meanders of a 'river.' Try a means.....?

'Now in the practical sense of the word: That 'journey' that is represented in [A] with the physical act of a pilgrimage. Or symbolic of those most frequently and often quoted three words...'The Holy Grail'.

'The Icknield Way' by Edward Thomas.

The implication being its more of a journey than an object. Inner rather than outer. {i.e.,in relation to 'self discovery'. Benefit of}. As indicated in such books as 'Strange Facts about the Bible' by W. Garrison. Or '101 Myths of the Bible' by G. Greenberg.

''Inner'' = 'Heart'? therefore 'vase' link?

As one example - a 'clay' one found at the very bottom of the Step Pyramid OR  a wooden one underneath the FOUNDATIONS of Rosslyn Chapel. Question. Any glazed ones found anywhere? {i.e., 'fired'}.

"One of the things that virtually all writers, philosophers and poets agree on - is that walking helps you think. In fact, in some languages the word 'traveling' is the same as the word for thinking." ['Britain's Ancient Tracks' - narrated by T. Robinson. Episode 3].

"To know the myths is to learn the secrets of the origin of things." [ Extract from 'Myth and Reality' by M. Eliade].

And/or..."Jung captured the ancient understanding of myths when he wrote: 'Dreams are private myths. Myths are public dreams'..." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

And/or: "Even Jung, who often saw wisdom where others saw only superstition, attributed the universality of myth to the workings of a mysterious 'collective unconscious'. Schwaller de Lubicz comes to a contrary conclusion and substantiates his claim. Myth may be the earliest known means of communicating information related to the nature of the cosmos, but it is also the most precise, the most complete, and perhaps the best." [Page 30 'Serpent in the Sky' / J. West].

'' It is worth keeping in mind at all times that myth is not an active force in itself but a tool {keys?} in the hands of the human beings - and different human beings will not only use it in different ways, but define it in different ways. The word may seem to be the same, but - like the narratives it represents - it will have different meanings in different contexts." [Introduction to the book 'The Implied Spider: Politics and Theology In Myth' / W. Doniger].

Fishers of men ?{and women}. Try ''Easter Island'' to enlarge.

''Myth always borrows geographical and historical facts in order to give a concrete meaning for the narrow mass intelligence always eager to hook its thought to what it falsely call realities." [Page 33 'The Egyptian Miracle' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

''Borrow'' in relation to 'trickster' character?

Up-to-date example: 'Foundation for Mind Research' / J. Houston.

This subject explains; amongst other things; what those strange facts/myths are. As it does with all those artifacts that are constantly found in such programs as 'Time team', i.e.,something that represents that inner awakening. An understanding of something. [Archeology program. Channel 4/G.B].. The framework of which they explain in 'abstract' form. the sense...That all the available 'information'...all the available ideas/common factors and key words are only hinted at. And only 'hinted' at because they themselves are not absolutely sure. No one is. They only attempt to 'define' {in their own words} what they have been taught or worked out for themselves. There are no absolutes - how can there be - the material is; and always will be; ONGOING. Its up to each reader to attempt to understand what it is. They only hint at what those possibilities are. Offered in the form of 'concepts' by way of symbols ['images'] in order for the reader to derive some logic from it. Instead in the Exoteric...just 'faith and hope'. Once 'aware' then the journey begins.

Question. Are ALL subjects {in all their different levels and forms} -  not ongoing?

Crossover point = ''Turning point''?

Question. Nothing more than an overplay of the imagination? On the level of a fairy story. Adult version? Since the dawn of human kind?

A practical/contemporary example: ''From our studies of hundreds of subjects and thousands of students, we concluded firstly that, the inner imagery process appears to be essentially creative, tapping into domains of the self which are ''on call'' {akashic and/Cayce hall of records?}, all the time. These other domains generally correspond to four levels of the pysche : the sensory, the psychological, the mythic or symbolic, and the spiritual or integral. Accessing these levels, one discovers vast reservoirs of unconsious knowledge {lakes?} and content available to enhance the creative process.'' [Preface 'Mind Games' / J. Houston].

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

Knock three times?

'Three' wise men?


Apple of the eye?

"The human's progress is that of one who has been given a 'sealed' book, written before he was born. He carries it inside of himself until he 'dies'. While man is subject to the movement of time, he does not know the contents of that concealed book." [ Hakim Sanai]. Taken from the book 'The way of the Sufi' by I. Shah.

"Truth did not come into the world 'naked' [key] but it came in types and images. One will not receive truth in any other way." [Gospel of Philip 67.9-11].

"These forms in letters and pictures and images are the means by which truths may be brought to the attention of the unripe mind." [Extract taken from the 'introduction' to the book by F. Hartman].

Unmanifested / manifested?

Red Lion / Green Lion?

Just as in physics especially Cosmology. That subject that became a viable/tangible one only because of Einsteins 'General Relativity' theorem out of which was predicted a 'start point' for the origins/beginnings of our own universe. What eventually became known in the form of a concept as the 'Singularity point'. To be represented later in symbolic form as the 'Big Bang'. Which finally led to a new idea/concept...'Inflation theory'.

red-devilsFootball another example. Every football club has its 'nickname'. [A concept?] That allows each group of supporters to identify with their own club within those many different clubs. The 'Red Devils' being one of those 'Manchester' clubs main symbolic emblems. With the same intention, i.e., not to be taken literally. Unless of course one has seen Mr Cuntona play, {sorry, Mr Cantona}. Only symbolic of what those words 'red devils' imply. 'In relation' to that particular group of individuals. As seen differently by each individual depending on ones imagination, i.e., 'minds eye', {'eye of Horus'}.

''Devil in the details.''

Building architecture another example. No less than the BBC center. That horseshoe type building; one of a few in existence; that some would identify with the crescent moon, {'Horned' moon. Explained elsewhere}. Many different levels to it in the vertical position; from a horizontal base, {explained elsewhere}...with of all the 'middle' of that area.

That same structure that has 'within helios-225x300it' a visual representation of a concept. A journey concept. Represented within the shape of an obelisk or Hebrew equivalent; a 'Pillar', { enlarged elsewhere}. On top of which is a 'youngster' {Helios, i.e., 'son of', {key}, demonstrating a balance. Indicative/symbolic of the understanding of new {'youngest'} Ideas, {explained within}. Symbolic of that potential by way of an inner balance/equilibrium, i.e., the middle way, {explained within}. Co-incidentally a very similar 'representation' can be seen in the 'Genie of Paris', as explained in ' The Master Game'. Mentioned elsewhere.

That potential and 'journey' which 'lies' within each individual. Represented within that astronomical emblem in 'its' hands...The zodiac 'in relation to 'the Great year', {explained within}.

All that 'information'. All those different subtleties/meanings. All encapsulated within one {more often than not, 'stone'} symbol.

In other words each symbol; [key] once understood; represents a volume of words. What some call... the "language of the soul ", {chapter five. 'The Future of the Ancient World' / J. Naydler}.

'A picture speaks a thousand words'.

That same subject that is no different to any other. It can be learned. Those 'possibilities of',{symbols/keys} arrive at that general idea. In this subjects case...'Journey' symbolism. Represented; more often than not; {especially in sufi lore} by the word/s...Path/s. [key].

"On hearing of the way, the best of men will earnestly explore its length. The mediocre person learns of it, takes it up, and sets it down. But others; when they hear the news, will laugh out loud, and if they did not laugh, it would not be the way". [Quote by Lao-Tzu].

"....the words 'idea', 'wisdom' and 'vision' ALL originate from the common Indo-European root which means ''to see''. An idea is an insight, an inner flash of illumination that can result in 'wisdom'." [From the book 'Alexandria' / Vol 3 ].

From a different perspective:  "Zeus means ''lighting up'' and only later came to mean ''he who illumines.'' [Extract from the book by C. Kerenyi ].

"Considered a pioneer in the interfaith movement, Sri Gurudev took every opportunity to bring together people of various traditions to see the oneness in all spiritual endeavors. He never called himself an exclusive member of any one faith, group or country but rather dedicated himself to the principle that ' Truth is One, Paths are many'. [Introduction to the book, 'The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali].

"True religion is one; its dogma's are simple and within the reach of all." Quote by E. Levi.

"The time tested scriptures of the world are one in essence, inspiring man on his upward journey." [ Enlarged elsewhere].

'God is in the detail'.


Like any other subject there has to be a start point. And like any subject there has to be those aspirations and inspirations to understand them; to begin that learning curve; to begin that process of understanding something new - from which - those 'basic keys/common factors' - allow a foundation to be formed. REPRESENTATIONAL OF. A link to Plato-s forms. What eventually became known as the...Primordial mound. That general idea allows that foundation...on to which more ideas can be ‘built’, Indicative of, i.e., in this subjects case...’Temple’ symbolism. As indicated in such books as 'The Mythical Origin of the Egyptian Temple'. By E. Reymond. Or...

"The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. The time has come for external forms and expressions to be left behind. There is no 'Temple' in the heavenly Jerusalem, for religion has no place in heaven. Man is his own temple, and his heart is the altar." [First chapter, first page, first paragraph of the book 'The Mind of Christ: Meditations on Christian Themes' by Anthony Duncan. Also 'Revelation' 21:22].

N.B. 'Altar' in relation to 'fire'. Or should that be ''Spirit-fire''? Enlarged elsewhere.

Question. What would ''soul'' be represented with?

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

''Thoth is the scribe of the gods, acclaimed as the god of wisdom, teacher of teachers, and also Lord of the Moon {recall Khonsu}. .....He brings the UNmanifested into manifestation...It was 'Thoth' {i.e., what he represents} that taught 'Isis' the words of 'magic' that allowed her to bring her 'dead' husband back to life to concieve their son Horus. The 'virgin' birth that predated Jesus....SESHET is the keeper of libraries, including the Akashic Records {neters link}. She is intimately connected with Thoth as the clear field upon which thoughts {as in Thoth} are impressed {recall Sokar}.....One of her most important roles is that of ''stretching the cord''....for the laying of the foundations of temples....'' [Page 108 'Sekhmet: Transformation in the Belly of the Goddess' / N. Scully].


Circumambulation ....Why right to left....and not left to times. Enlarged within.

That same 'foundation' that is built from a ‘rock’/corner stone. Christian equivalent. The word 'Peter'. Or the 'Black' corner stone of the Ka'ba. {‘Black’ = symbolic of that 'unaware/unknown' quantity in relation to the beginner/student/ apprentice, or reader i.e., not yet aware}. Represented more often than not in the form of the 'unconscious', i.e., animus/anima and/or shadow aspect of the individual, i.e., as in the Egyptian case with 'Nephthys' or 'Set' depending on where on that framework the beginner starts from, i.e., from an 'unknown' or '‘known' state, i.e., Isis/Osiris ‘in relation to’ Horus who represents the 'beginner'. All three are composites of one individual. The question is. Who is the real individual’?

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

Side note: Sneferu first attempt of a 'true' pyramid {Meidum} - ''As soon as you see it, it looks like there's something wrong. Looks more like a 'tower' than a pyramid - built on a foundation of sand - " [Lecture 8. 'The History of Ancient Egypt' / B. Briers].

Question. Purposely - as a means...? Recall the Tower of Babel story. Reaching up to the sky.

Supposedly ''abandoned'' even though it was only one part of a bigger complex, i.e., Bent Pyramid with causeway and valley temple. ''We are not a hundred percent sure as to the purpose of that valley temple.''

Clues: Valley and/or Desert = E-W/W-E. Mountain and or River = N-S/S-N.

It was also an 8 stepped. As opposed to the previous 6 stepped. An evolution of something - represented with stone. In the spiritual SENSE of the word.

Valley temple composed of 'six' niches in its inner sanctum {'cube' therefore E-W link?}. Eventually stones taken apart and 'pathway' made from them that leads down from the desert {'wasteland'?} - to the Nile 'fertile' valley and river {S-N link?}.

Bent Pyramid is the first to have smooth sides. Two chambers {'voids'?} within. Lower one corbelled. 'Higher' one has its corbelling scuffed. Purposely?  Higher 'mysteries' not yet achieved?

Red Pyramid also has an ''inner'' corbelling design. ONE continuous 'void' encompassed by two 'stepped' slopes {'steep' link?} of stone. The first TRUE pyramid.

As is the same with the Grand Gallery. Peter James {structural enginner} asks Mark Lehner as to the purpose of such a void. ''No one really knows''. ['Legends of the Pharaohs' / History Channel].

Inner/outer. Internal/External as a means...?

A completion of something?

Question. Is the Step Pyramid {'six' stepped} and Giza plateau also part of that ''bigger complex''?

North to South as a means.....?

Question. What does 'six' represent?

Greek equivalent = Greater Dionysos?

'She who loves silence'.

REFRESHER: "The Rivers and Seas [because they seek a lowly place] are Lords of a hundred valleys". Let your love flow, seek a lowly place, you will be lord of a hundred valleys", [extract taken from page '66', from the book 'Tao Te King' by Lao- Tzu. Translated by Isabella Mears].

'Plains' and/or valleys in relation to ''the concept of flow''. Enlarged throughout.

Try ''Sneferu'' to understand subject material in its universal context.

Side note: A practical/working example: "I have been thinking about going home a lot. Its not about the coffee, chocolate cake or Dave any more - although i will be looking for those people and things when i finally go home. This is an experience where you can have those aha moments. I'M glad i have had the opportunity to contemplate my exit. In your regular life peaks and valleys are much smaller than out here. Out here you have highs that are higher than the tallest mountain and lows lower than the lowest valley and that takes a huge toll on you mentally....its a mental challenge - you could say mental athletics...." [Kielyn / 'Alone' / History Channel].

As seen from a certain MIND SET.......


Question. Reason for the location at Saqqara?

''Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill made low; the uneven ground will be made smooth, and the rugged land a plain, and the glory of the lord will be revealed...'' {Isaiah 40:4}.

In the abstract SENSE of the word: ''The Eternal Parent, wrapped in Her ever - invisible Robes, had slumbered once again for Seven Eternities. Time was not, for it lay asleep in the Infinite Bosom of Duration {'Saturn'?}. Universal Mind was not, for there we no HA HA {moment?} to contain it. The Seven Ways to Bliss were not. The Great Causes of Misery were not, for there was no one to produce and get ensnared {answers?} by them. Darkness alone filled the Boundless All, for 'Father', 'Mother' and 'Son' were once more ONE, and the son had not yet awakened for the New Wheel and his Pilgrimage to begin.'' [ Tibetan or Mongolian description of the Pleroma - taken from the book 'The Gnostic Jung' / S. A. Hoeller].

Kubla Khan for same analogy.

Question. Top/down or Bottom/up?

Gebel el Silsila?

A work {in progress} example: ''As a consequence of these exercises, ones inner life no longer swings from one extreme to another and, in the resultant calm {'lake'?}, one can begin to sense the dawning of a 'higher self'. The experience of this moment {''aha''?} is one that can center a students entire life - inner and outer.'' [Page 224 'How to Know Higher Worlds' / R. Steiner].

''She Who Loves Silence''?

And/or 'Lady of the Lake'?

ALL as a means.....?

Continued: "The lengthened shadow of a man IS history, said Emerson." [Extract from 'Selected Poems' by T. S. Eliot].

"To make light visible God had only to postulate shadow." [Quote from within the book by E. Levi].

'God is in the detail'?

Something beginning...

Something ending....

Greek equivalent = Hades 'the unseen' = unaware. Symbolic of the psyche. Represented by oceans. Poseidon 'closer' to that awareness, i.e., 'Breached' the surface, i.e., light/awareness as opposed to in 'depths of the sea', [ what became known as the 'Wet way'. Explained within ]. Represented as 'Brothers'. Symbolic of a bond/ ’relationship’ to all 'three'’. He was also 'god' of 'islands', [ The 'Dry way'. Explained elsewhere ]. The Greek analogy of that same universal symbol. The primordial mound. Think about it. Something conceived in 'concrete' form through 'awareness', i.e.,once the 'surface' has been 'breached' then 'light' is now exposed. Light in relation to an 'understanding'. That 'understanding' represented in some...'form'. That 'form'--in relation to the 'self'.

''Man is an island''? True/Untrue ?

"So the old man relented and told Gilgamesh [''He who first saw the deep''] where to find a very special plant. 'It' grows he said, on the bottom of the ocean. This plant is prickly like a bramble, like a rose, but if you can dive down far enough and find it, and bring it up to the surface, you need never grow old". [Full story, with notes 'The Sacred History'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Think about it, later.

"In modern, materialistic terms we might describe this as a diving down into the subconscious, but in the terms of the 'idealism' of the day this would not have been a mental event sectioned off from material reality. "According to the 'mystical' philosophy exposed by Brunetto Latini, it is because humanity is the 'crown' of creation that we can learn about all creation by examining ourselves. We are a book, and if we learn to read that book, we can read everything." [Chapter 31, same book].

''Far off and exceedingly deep, who can find it out?" [Eccles, vii.24].

From a different perspective {Top/down?}: "Aquarius 'The Waterman' was so called by Ideler... because the sun passed through it during the rainy season. In connection with this, the proximity of other analogous stellar forms is worthy of note: Capricornus, Cetus, Delphinus, Eridanus, Hydra, Pisces, and Pisces Australis, all the watery shapes in the early heavens, with Argo and Crater, are in this neighbourhood; some of whose stars Aratos said ''are called the Water''; indeed in Euphratean astronomy this region of the sky was the Sea, and thought it to be under the control of Aquarius." [Page 45 'Star Names and Their Meaning'. Includes bold print].

"...and darkness was upon the face of the deep." Genesis.

And/or "Is not this Cauldron - the ruler of the deep." {Celtic equivalent}. Enlarged elsewhere.

Yet another analogy of same..."Neither sun nor moon shine in this dark sea which leads to the realm of night, where the heavenly bodies disappear into, and re-emanate from, a land under the horizon. In a sense it is all that is unconscious. All that is in potentia, not yet manifest. Represented as ''held in a cosmic womb..."[ Extract taken from Part 2, 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess: The Quest for the Eternal Feminine Principle' by G. Knight].

The real question however is...Why. Why go to all this effort. Boredom?

Analogy of same - "Be like an ocean whose appearance does not change, but in which the dark soldiers of your ego drown'' [Quote by Muhammad]. i.e.,"The spirit of the one in inner study, dives into its depths to find the pearl [key] of truth, brings to the surface pearls of wisdom and coral [key] of grace, and spreads them abroad." [Chapter 20, 'The Secret of Secrets. Mentioned elsewhere].

And/or..."The blind and the seeing are not alike; nor are the depths of darkness and the light." [Quran 35:19/20].

In his left hand,

Oannes. In his left hand... "a basket that is not a basket". Indicative of symbolic intention ONLY. That same Web like basket that contains the omphalos Stone. Understanding this subjects symbolism gives its true meaning, relative to the reader. Try ''net''.

Sumerian equivalent = Enki. Whose 'house was in the water'... while being a lord of 'firm ground'. ['The 12th Planet'. Chapter ten.Z.Sitchin ]. The words 'house' and 'lord' possess the same 'meaning' within this subject, regardless of place, time, or culture. Both key words. Explained within. Hence the reason; as indicated in the first chapter of the 'Sirius Mystery', why he is seen "stretched out in the swampland", {a link to 'amphibian', represented as 'fish-tailed'... its true meaning}. 'Stretched' in relation to the 'horizontal'. [link to the Egyptian Djed Column. Explained within]. 'Swampland', in relation to wet / dry. [Represented as a ...'Boundary' [key]]. Fresh in relation to salt. {Egyptian equivalent...Nile Delta}. The borderline between the two [In Enki's case more 'fresh' than 'salt'. Even though one of his titles was 'Lord of the salt-waters'. Think about it, later]. In Sumerian culture that 'representation' described with the word 'NIbiru'. Explained within.

If the author understood this subject he would know the answer to his question, in relation to the above. Enki also related to the word 'snake'. Information elsewhere,i.e., the 'beginnings of something. [Page 89, 'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of life'].

"And now that we replace one message by another....since god is fully aware of what he bestows from on high, step by step....they [who deny the truth] are wont to say, "You but invented it!" Nay but most of them do not understand it! Say: "Holy inspiration has brought it down from your sustainer by stages, setting forth the truth, so that it might give firmness to those who have attained to faith, and provide guidance and a glad tiding to all who have surrendered themselves to god." [Quran, 16: 101-102. Emphasis, this readers]. Extract taken from page 172, 'The Book of Revelations' by Kabir Helminski.

SIDE NOTE: "I can't prove anything yet. It could of course, all be coincidence, or i could be imagining links that aren't there. But my curiosity is aroused by the similar 'containers' on different continents and in different epochs and so i jot down a series of questions that can form the frame of a loose hypothesis for future testing. For instance, could these 'containers' - whether they are bags or buckets {'baskets'?} - be the symbols of office of an initiate brotherhood; far traveled and deeply ancient, with roots reaching back into the remotest prehistory? I feel that this possibility, extraordinary as it may be on the face of things, is worth looking into and is strengthened by the distinctive hand postures. Might these not have served as some sort of function as the Masonic handshake does today...? And what might have been the purpose of such a brotherhood? Curiously enough, in both Mexico and Mesopotania where myths and traditions have survived in connection with the same imagery and symbolism, we are left in no doubt as to what that purpose was. Stated simply it was to teach, to guide and to spread the benefits of civilization. This was after all, the explicit function of Oannes and the Apkallu sages, who taught 'how to plant seeds and then harvest their fruits and vegetables' - agriculture in other words - and who also taught them... how to build 'temples'..." ['The Magicians of the Gods' / G. Hancock].

Something closer to the 'mark' i.e., that inner one, i.e.,represented as the 'contents' {inner} of {say} a 'basket'. Try ''net'' in relation to ''weaving'' the sum result of which could be described as ''the fruits of ones labours''? All as a means...?

There is no Temple in the heavenly Jerusalem, for religion has no place in heaven. Man is his own temple, and his heart is the altar."

Continued...That 'Wet /Dry' symbolism...a link to the divisions in what later became known as the 'Mystery clubs', i.e., Hades and Poseidon up to that 'concrete' development represents 'lower'. Therefore everything above it represents 'higher'. Hence the reason for Zeus, [ 'Youngest' brother. N.B. Enki also had a 'younger' aspect to his name ].... to be 'born' in a cave. Symbolic of the start point of the 'higher' divisions. Represented in the Greek case by the word 'Father', i.e., Zeus.

Everything therefore created/ 'fathered' by [as in the Greek example "Zeus" ] - thereafter...symbolic of those different aspects; both positive/negative; within the now conscious self, i.e., 'Higher' relation to an understanding of the 'self'...within this subject,[from that 'lower'[unconscious]start point] i.e., what eventually became known as Micro/Macro [Keys]. By way of each 'individuals' relationship to it. What later became labelled as 'Sky religion'. [Book on the same by G.Wainwright. Or 'Serpent in the Sky' by J.West. Note the link between 'Sky' and 'high wisdom'. In the 'conscious' sense. Nothing more. Representational of. I.e., from 'unaware', to something now 'aware'.

"Let the 'creator' know himself to be the builder, and not the building...." Quote by A. Bailey.

Understanding the above defines such statements as the following..."The Christian tendency to give the 'Mystery' a gender can be confusing, because the Mystery is specifically beyond all such dualities. However, Christians emphasize that 'the Father' is not really male. Marcus describes the Mystery as 'the Father who is inconceivable and beyond being, neither male nor female'. Simon Magnus speaks of a bisexual Oneness, 'generating itself, making itself grow, seeking itself, finding itself, being mother of itself, father of itself, sister of itself, spouse of itself, daughter of itself, son of itself'. In Trimorphic Protennoia, a Christian text, a divine voice announces: 'I am androgynous. I am both mother and father..." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

Every 'alternative' interpretation solely dependable on each individuals 'character'. Always represented as 'ego' [key], i.e., its lower state, more often than not in 'Dragon' form. Tiamat the Babylonian equivalent. Especially in relation to Marduk, ['youngest'] whose 'emblem' was the snake/dragon. More 'dragon' than 'snake', [and more 'sea' snake than land snake as in Mehan and Wedjet. Explained elsewhere]. Think about it, if only later. Indicative of his 'dominance' over same, i.e., negative over positive, or even 'Peacock' symbolism in relation to 'micro', [ Explained elsewhere].

Kore Kosmou...Hermetic equivalent of same, as explained, if only from an historical view point in chapter eleven of the book 'The Master Game'. Mentioned elsewhere.

The word 'Cave' one of those key words. The 'Seven' sleepers story found in the Quran or of the same; but not in 'number'; in the bible, as explained in M. Lings book 'Mecca. From before Genesis Until Now.' [Seven symbolic of an 'astronomical' feature. Explained within].

Especially 'negative' ones.

"Man can be modified by habit, which becomes, according to the proverb, his second nature." Question. Is this subject nothing more than a 'moral' exercise [in good manners?] represented by myths; puns and proverbs - since the dawn of human kind?

''Second to none''? as a means....?

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

2nd nature? Left or right eye?

''At the beginning it was {'First' matter} condensed out of water out of a certain cloud {of unknowing?} and darkness being the nihil ad nos of Dionysus and Divine Darkness {Aphrodite/Cyprus?}: in other words, it came forth from 'god' , but whether by creation or some other MEANS, we are left to speculate. It is the Second Nature from god Himself and the Child of the blessed trinity. This Second Nature is not a second person...It is the 'Mother' of all...This virgin water....''fleshy and sensual'' is the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge....subject of the Philosophical Medicine...''

Spathulate Fleawort. Flowers EVERY OTHER YEAR at the BEGINNING of summer. At least SIX BLOOMS or more. Found no where else IN THE WORLD except the South stack on Holyhead Island off Anglesey. Wales. ''NO ONE knows why''. Does Asteria? AND/OR: Did the Druids? See below.

A working example: Of the names by which he was called at the temple in the 'swamps' {'Bog-men' link?} - all referred to the feast of Anthestria. One of the dithyrambs says: 'Now the time has come now the 'flowers' are here'. Another dithyramb by an unknown poet describes the time of flowers that has just begun: 'When the divine fields of motley flowers, in the shady grove receive with open arms {Egyptian raised arms symbol?} then the Bacchic dances begin by tender virgins'. These verses are of the post classical period - they belong to a scene of Persephone picking flowers on the shores of Okeanos when she was carried away by the king of the 'underworld'. It is not Athens. From Athens we hear only of the ''swinging of the virgins'' on the second day of Athesteria.... "The central action was performed in the deepest secrecy within the narrowest limits of strict women's mysteries which no man could approach. The 'vase' paintings, however, show that the whole 'city' was very much concerned with  the secret action of these days....These actions were performed in and near the temple of Dionysos Limnaios....It occurred on the second day of the festival {feast?}, the only day of the year that the temple was 'open' {left or right eye?}.

Side note: ''The name Asteraceae (English: /ˌæstəˈrsi, -siˌ, -siˌ, -siˌ/) comes to international scientific vocabulary from New Latin, from Aster, the type genus, + -aceae,[24] a standardized suffix for plant family names in modern taxonomy. The genus name comes from the Classical Latin word aster, "star", which came from Ancient Greek ἀστήρ (astḗr), "star".[24] It refers to the star-like form of the inflorescence...The original name Compositae is still valid under the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants..... The vernacular name daisy, widely applied to members of this family, is derived from the Old English name of the daisy (Bellis perennis): dæġes ēaġe, meaning "day's eye". This is because the petals open at dawn and close at dusk.'' [Wiki].

''In Greek mythology, Asteria or Asterie (/əˈstɪəriə/; Ancient Greek: Ἀστερία, lit.'of the stars, starry one') was a daughter of the Titans Coeus (Polus) and Phoebe and the sister of Leto.[1] According to Hesiod, by the Titan Perses she had a daughter, Hecate, goddess of witchcraft.[2] Other authors made Asteria the mother of the fourth Heracles[3] and Hecate[4] by Zeus.''

Astraea, Astrea or Astria (Ancient Greek: Ἀστραίᾱ, romanizedAstraíā;[1] "star-maiden" or "starry night"), in ancient Greek religion, is a daughter of Astraeus and Eos.[2][3] She is the virgin goddess of justice, innocence, purity and precision. She is closely associated with the Greek goddess of justice, Dike (daughter of Zeus and Themis). She is not to be confused with Asteria, the goddess of the stars and the daughter of Coeus and Phoebe. The main belt asteroid 5 Astraea is named after her, and her name was also suggested for the planet Uranus.[4]

Astraea, the celestial virgin, was the last of the immortals to live with humans during the Golden Age, one of the old Greek religion's five deteriorating Ages of Man.[2] In the Iron Age, the world was illegally rampant. People covet gold, family and friends don't trust each other.[5] According to Ovid, Astraea abandoned the earth during the Iron Age.[6] Fleeing from the new wickedness of humanity, she ascended to heaven to become the constellation Virgo. The nearby constellation Libra reflected her symbolic association with Dike, who in Latin culture as Justitia is said to preside over the constellation. In the Tarot, the EIGHTH card, Justice, with a figure of Justitia, can thus be considered related to the figure of Astraea on historical iconographic grounds.

According to myth, Astraea will one day come back to Earth, bringing with her the return of the utopian Golden Age of which she was the ambassador.''

As a 'number of gods' it is found as early as in ancient Babylon...In the Mithriac mysteries one finds a mysterious eighth gate beyond the seven main gates....The Muslims believe there are 7 hells and 8 paradises....The custom of dividing gardens into eight parts carries over from one of the most famous works of medieval Persian literature, 'Sa'di's Gulistan' {Rose garden}, which is divided into 8 chapters....Others = Venus year of 8 months....Eight appears as a second beginning on a higher level {'octaves'?}....It is the day of purification in the Hebrew tradition....Christ's resurrection took place on the eighth day of the Passion.....Eight is the first purrfect cube {2x2x2}, imprints us in body and soul with the security of eternal beatitude."

''The grandeur of the site led to the belief that the tombs had once been the burial place of the kings of Judah, hence the name Tombs of the Kings; but the tombs are now associated with Queen Helena of Adiabene. According to this theory, Queen Helena chose the site to bury her son Isates and others of her dynasty.''

''Paphos is a city on the southwest coast of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Inhabited since Neolithic times, it has several sites relating to the cult of goddess Aphrodite, whose mythical birthplace was at Old Paphos (Kouklia and/or ''uphill'').

Represented, [in the Greek example] as Cronos, [ 'Father' of 'lower' half ]. Or the 'Wild man' of 'Green man' fame, [Pagan equivalent, i.e., his 'Brother'. Hebrew equivalent, Cain/Able,i.e., 'opposites']. Arabic equivalent = Al-Khidre, i.e., from a 'lower' to a 'higher' state. Egyptian equivalent = Anubis relative to 'its' deeper [one could say 'negative'[unknown' aspect]...Wepwawet, i.e.,more 'Wolf' than 'dog' or Jackal. As it is with the Sumerian equivalent as explained in the 'Gilgamesh' myth. [Explained within].

Somnus [sleep], son of nox, [night], the Roman goddess of night and darkness, was said to have lived in a dark cave, where the sun 'can never come'. ['Metamorphoses' by Ovid].

Yet another analogy of same..."Neither sun nor moon shine in this dark sea which leads to the realm of night, where the heavenly bodies disappear into, and re-emanate from, a land under the horizon. In a sense it is all that is unconscious. All that is in potentia, not yet manifest. Represented as ''held in a cosmic womb..."[ Extract taken from Part 2, 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess: The Quest for the Eternal Feminine Principle' by G. Knight].

Or from negative {shadow?} into a positive {anima?}. In most 'stories' it is mostly the 'youngest' who achieves that ultimate goal, i.e., 'Holy Grail'. And/Or 'Treasure' symbolism. Question. Why?

Clue. It has to do with 'old’' habits in relation to 'new’' ones. Or put another way..."Man can be modified by habit, which becomes, according to the proverb, his second nature."

''Second to none''?

Cronos in relation to Hades in relation to Poseidon in relation to Zeus, and that relationship to a 'further development'.[Explained within]. Think about it. Hebrew equivalent= Miriam/Aaron/Moses. Notice any difference? 'Wet way’' in relation to 'Dry way’'.[Explained within ]. The 'dry way' that later became known as 'sky' re-ligion. ['Eldest' link]. See it?

"The cult of the Holy Grail spread through Europe at the time when the doctrine of Transubstantiation was being formulated by Thomas Aquinas. Both grew out of an alchemical tradition of 'thinking'. Both were concerned with spiritualization of matter by mind." [Page, 260, 'The Sacred History']. Recall what the word 'Alchemy' truly means, regardless of place, time or culture.

"We are accustomed to saying that sleep is the younger brother of death. It would be just as correct, however, to say that forgetting is the younger brother of sleep."

Even though to some; its 'description' of same principles could be described as 'heavy going', i.e.,....


Concrete 'pillars'?

"Thus the biblical words [keys]: seed, trees, the sea, and the dry land, as well as 'heaven' and 'earth' mean much more than the concrete things designated by these words. The ''seas'' that in Genesis account of the third day of 'creation' are described as the gathering together of the waters under the heavens unto one place signify the state of concentration [''gathering'' of force substance], whereby it retains its mobility in the sense of being able to be moved. On the other hand the ''dry land'' means a state of still greater concentration ['' gathering unto one place''], where the force substance is so condensed - contracted - that a coagulation into solidity is reached. The account of the third day of creation begins with a description of the appearance ['' becoming visible''] of the dry land as a kind of process of crystallisation: ''And god said: let the waters [plural in the original Hebrew] under the heavens be gathered together in one place, and let the dry land appear [become visible]." [Same book]. 'See' anything? Try ''crystallis{z}ation''.

Hermetic equivalent..."Fusion, inner unity, is obtained by means of 'friction', by the struggle between 'yes' and 'no' in man. If a man lives without inner struggle; if everything happens to him without opposition; if he goes wherever he is drawn or wherever the wind blows, he will remain such as he is. But if a struggle begins in him, and particularly if there is a definite line in this struggle, then, gradually, permanent traits begin to form themselves, he begins to 'crystallise'. Crystallisation is possible on any foundations." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter Xiii' ]. Link to ''Temple'' symbolism - See it? It also implies - a change of 'habit'. Benefits of. Yes or no?

That word ''means'' could be represented as an ''equilibrium'' of something. For an understanding to take place. Found within.

The real question however; if only for this reader; is why. Why go to all this effort? Why do different cultures from the dawn of human kind express those same principles - using those same 'keys'? Why?

You could say in answer to that question - why are you bothering to do the same. You also are spending the time and effort. The answer is a simple one - these are my notes in relation to this subject - in relation to what i believe they imply - notes, that i can come back to, at any time. Should anyone else wish to read them; for whatever reasons; is okay. We all like to share; do we not; any interests that we have- if only to see if anyone else not only shares those same interests; but also what their opinions [if any] are forthcoming. Hence the reason for presenting it in a form [acceptable?] to present and future readers. The point is; my analysis of what they imply - could be an incorrect one - and like any other subject - that can only be determined by each individual.

Arjuna, who was known as [by way of Gudakesha] - The Lord of sleep. Question. Within that same story, i.e.,within those 18 'discourses' - who or what would be a representation of ''giant'' and ''dwarf''? Question 2. Why eighteen?

Wedding ring?

"The number EIGHTEEN, which appears in pre-Columbian measures of time, has a certain importance in the West. This may be explained by the connection to the circular number 360, or possibly with an astral number, since eclipses of the sun and moon recur in the same sequence after 18 years. It is not surprising that 18 plays a role in the Cabala, for its numerical number corresponds to the word for living [hay], as well as the name David..." [Extract from 'The Mystery of Numbers'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Question. What does the ''eclipse'' represent - if only within the context of this subject?

''Most often when you see the twin sisters on tomb walls, you find Nephthys standing behind Isis, as if she were a shadow of her, eclipsed by Isis. However, looking at a New Kingdom sarcophagus, you see Nephthys standing at the 'head' and Isis at the 'feet'. During the Old Kingdom Pyramid Texts the placement of the goddess is reversed. Either way , the goddesses stand beside or flank every soul at death." [Page 39 'The Union of Isis and Thoth].

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

'Place of Rowing'?

The author of 'Death of the Gods in Ancient Egypt' believes that the corona of same {Diamond Ring} was used throughout ancient Egypt - especially in conjunction with Precession. Thousands of keys mentioned but ONLY in relation to her hypothesis that Precession was recorded a lot earlier than most agree with. Indeed it was - AS A NATURAL FEATURE OF THIS PLANET THAT WE ALL PARTICIPATE IN - it along with ALL other NATURAL features are used - SINCE THE DAWN OF HUMAN KIND - to attempt an understanding {an insight} of something inner - in relation to that universal ''bit''.

Example / 'explanation' of same..."When Nephthys gave birth to Anubis, Isis treated the child as if it were her own; for Nephthys is that which is beneath the earth and invisible, Isis that which is above the earth and visible; and the circle which touches these, called the horizon, being common to both, has received the name 'Anubis', and is represented in form like a dog; for the dog can 'see' both by day and night alike. And among the Egyptians Anubis is thought to possess this 'faculty' [representational of only. This readers input]. which is similar to that which Hecate is thought to possess amongst the Greeks, for Anubis is a 'deity' of the lower world, as well as a 'god' of the higher", [Olympus]. Remember...symbolic only. A representation of something, with an understanding in mind.

Sirius = The 'Dog' Star.

Understanding that last sentence in relation to "Anubis being in wet" and/or "Lord of the desert" and/or "Anubis on his hill / mountain", [chapter six. 'The Sphinx Mystery'. R. Temple]. When put together with additional information [of same] enclosed within, gives the reader that 'general' overview of what 'Anubis' represents, in relation to the whole, i.e., the 'individual'.

"It is a means for the whole to know itself." Seth quote, in answer to ...."what is existence..." [Chapter nine, 'The Seth Material by J. Roberts].

"It is he who maketh the stars as beacons for you, that ye may guide yourselves, with their help, through the dark spaces of land and sea: We detail our signs for people who know." [Quran 6:97].

Think about; if only later; as one has to do; in any subject; i.e.,revise... in relation to Anima/shadow, i.e.,Nephthy/Isis in relation to what those aspects sooner or later relate to, i.e.,Horus. Sometimes called Horus the 'younger'. More importantly..'dog' headed in relation to 'falcon' headed. Question. Who/what does 'Horus' relate to. What is he a representational of? That link to Horus 'in the Horizon', and Horus 'of the Horizon', both aspects that relate to that 'somethings' physical 'representation', in symbolic form i.e., the Sphinx. [Micro] All explained within.

A yearning?

Side note: {A working example}: ''The next stage of the journey brought the hero to the deepest point of the cycle {nadir}, there to be recognised by the father/creator, to achieve sacred marriage with the goddess of inner beloved of the soul, and to enter upon his apotheosis or transformation....I was beginning to feel something or someone getting closer, and when i did, the sweep of emotion would be immense, a SWEETNESS that disolved for an instant all barriers, a remembrance of what or whom i was part of. And then it would deminish, as if to say, 'Not yet, not yet', and i would be left with a yearning and a promise. My apotheosis, i decided would have to wait awhile. Campbell, however, offered an alternative way of meeting this stage/cycle - it had to do with stealing the boon for which one was questing {'trickster'?} - the elixir of life {'grail'?}, the fire of immortality, the key of knowledge . Campbell wrote: 'It is an expansion of consciousness and therewith of being' {Heb-Sed and/or 'horizon'?}...''[Page 91 ' A Mythic Life' / J. Houston].

""The transmission and interpretation of myths constituted not only one of the highest arts of the ancient world, but also, as the theological canon of Greek gematria shows, a sacred science as well. It is sadly representative of our time that the word myth, in common usage, denotes an untruth, as in the phrase, ''its just a myth.'' In antiquity, the word 'mythos' had just the opposite meaning and denoted a traditional narrative designed to entertain, to educate, and to transmit the very soul and gnosis of the culture."................"Therefore, if we are to gain insight into the nature of the 'gods' [those divine principles, that underlie creation] a particular instructive approach involves the philosophical interpretation of myth." [Chapter one, 'Jesus Christ Sun of God: Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism'. Including parenthesis. Enlarged elsewhere].

In its physical form [Macro], it is represented as the lowest layer of a temple complex such as the one found/ excavated on 'Elephantine Island'. The lowest layer of which...over thousands of years...was to contain nothing more than three boulders ['stones'[key]. Explained within]] within the corner of that first layer. [Chapter four. 'The Egypt Code' by R. Bauval]. Or Chapter six, 'Black Genesis'].

Why three? It is meant to represent [symbolic of] the readers 'intuitive faculty'. [Instinctive reasoning. By way of a balance between thought/emotion/will]. Or more to the point..."the mind that seeks to know. The understanding that can recognize the truth, [emotion link]...and the will that can love that truth." [Chapter six.'The Brotherhood of the Common Life,and its Influence". By R. Fuller.[i.e.,recall what 'stone' represents], i.e., ''And upon this rock, i will build...". Hebrew equivalent, "Just as they do in the higher world, the ten Sefirot 'exist' in the human soul, and from their mutual interrelations are derived and manifested all the broad span of thoughts, feelings and experiences of man." i.e., "Hokhmah, expressing the power of original light, is that which distinguishes and creates, and is the basis of intuitive grasp." [Chapter three 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose' by A. Steinsaltz]. Others explained elsewhere.

'Third eye' ?

Side note: "You have three guesses: why does the proverb say ''Good things come in threes'', and why does the psychologist think that 3 restores the damaged 2 has caused by dividing? The reason , as Ludwig Paneth has stated, is that the triad leads to a new integration, one that does not negate the duality preceding it but rather, overcomes it, just as the child is a binding element that unites the male and female partner." [from the chapter: The Embracing Synthesis {3} / 'Mystery of Numbers' / Annemarie Schimmel].


Modern equivalent? ''Mind, Consciousness and Thought are the three principles that enable us to acknowledge and respond to existence. They are the basic building blocks, and it is through these three components that all psychological mysteries are unfolded. They are what i call the psychological trinity." ['The Missing Link: Reflections on Philosophy and Spirit' / Sydney Banks].

N.B. ''Building blocks'' in relation to 'Temple' construction. Representation of?

The word 'grasp' being a key word, i.e.,"I cannot totally grasp all that i am," wrote St. Augustine in the fifth century A.D. "For that darkness is lamentable in which the possibilities in me are hidden from myself: so that my mind, questions itself upon its own powers, feels that it cannot rightly trust its own report." [Chapter nine, 'Hidden Wisdom', by R. Smoley and J. Kinney]. Think about in relation to the picture of Akhenaten and 'family' [shown further on] receiving the 'benefits' of the 'Aten' by way of a representation of the 'suns rays' with extended 'hands'. That potential, that could lead to an understanding...[by way of, a 'leap' of the imagination].


''Meanders'' in a different 'form'.

"This grasp of symbols, then applies not only to the human figure but to every reality in the world. To those who know this meaning, reality is more clear and comprehensible." ['Thirteen Petalled Rose'].

The Greeks [Plato] referred to those three aspects as 'pistis' 'dianoia' and 'noesis', i.e.,...

"In addition to pistis and dianoia there was also a third faculty - intuition. This Plato called noesis, and it was thought of as the highest expression of all human mental faculties when working as a well trained team {'horses'? Four?}. It is often confused with instinct and with feeling. We all know the person who says: 'I have an intuition; I feel it in my bones.' But the noesis of the ancient Mysteries was something much more than this for it was a faculty of comprehending those 'great universal ideas of which the manifested universe is a differentiated and objective expression'." [Chapter 5, 'The Forgotten Mage' by C. Seymour].

''Great universal ideas'' represented in the 'pagan' sense of the word with:

"And this brings us to the THREE Rites of Assumption themselves. True to Druidic pattern, the nine rites given in the Pheryllt are grouped into three groups of three, each set denoting a past-present-future 'relationship'. The second of these sets, has been chosen as most appropriate to this chapter: 1 = Song of Taliesin {I have been...}, the past. 2 = Song of Amergin { I am... }, the present. 3 = Song of Bluestar {I will be...}, the 'future'.'' Enlarged elsewhere. Try Part 2.

Alchemy represents those three principles with...'Mercury', 'Sulpher' and 'Salt'. Enlarged elsewhere.

''Second to none''?

Side note: Mercury symbol = 'H'g

A working example: ''We are now approaching  the alchemical courses, which transmute while they raise the vibration. For what is maturity but the turning of basic substances into rare and precious ones with the skillful addition of just the right thing at the right moment.''[Page 291 'A Mythic Life' / J. Houston].

As {one} example: "Here we must emphasize {for the first of many times}: the Islamic authors and the later western-European alchemists did not mean the pure elements of sulfur and mercury we know today. By sulfur they meant a volatile, combustible principle, but not necessary the yellow powder we would purchase at the drugstore, and by mercury they meant a metal-like liquid, not necessary the liquid quicksilver of thermometers and switches." ['The Chemistry of Alchemy'].

'Metal of the mind'?

Hindu equivalent represents those ''three'' as qualities [gunas], i.e., 'tamas', 'rajas' and 'satta'.

Quality as opposed to Quantity. A direct link to the ''dualistic'' stuff. ITS AIM AND PURPOSE. That same stuff {principles?} that such authors of such books as the 'Master Game' are still in the dark about: {i.e., light/dark and/or sun/moon and/or male/female and/or bitter/sweet and/or gross/subtle etc}. All as a means....?

A mind set?

A very good book to start would be: 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual Unfoldment' / P. F. Case. {Chapter entitled the 'Three Principles'. Vol 1].

Try Remembering/Forgetting. And/or On/off the Mark {''aim'' link}.


The sciences especially mathematics/physics refer to that process of 'getting ones head around it'... by way of... those ''three principles'' [and/or ''qualities''], as the cognitive faculty. Eastern = 'Chakra' link, [ i.e.,'ajna' ]. Egyptian = The 'eye' of Horus. Hindu = ‘Atman’ link, i.e.,''That which sees through the eye but whom the eye sees not; that is the Atman." [ Introduction, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita']. Or the Hebrew link to the word ’Shekhinah’, i.e., "the means of transmitting" a potential. Chapter four. ’The Mystical shape of the godhead’. Mentioned elsewhere...

Side note: Alchemy equivalent = 'Powder of projection' ?

'Hoe' money. Aztec.

Side note: Gunpowder discovered by the Chinese {accidently} - while looking for the Philosophers Stone, attempting to ''turn base metals into gold.'' ['Flog It' / 8.1.20].

And/or: Giant carved stones used on the island of Yap {Caroline Islands} as money. Sometimes called ''stone money'' {'The Chase' / 11.1.22}.

{C}alliope - Chief muse.

Continued: ...Not literal. First impressions. Remember. Symbolic of something else ,i.e., no one believes that he/she has the equivalent of 'gods head' on their shoulders, unless of course their ego-s are their primary driving force,[explained within]. Represented; in part; by some as a ‘Golden’ flower or ‘Rose’, i.e., indicative of a ‘blossoming’ /development of something. Explained elsewhere. Hence the link to such quotes {if only in the Hindu - sense of the 'word' - } as .......

"The Gunas are the primordial forces that arise from the most basic aspects of consciousness. Their existence cannot be perceived directly, but can only be felt through their influence. As subtle forces the Gunas 'govern' different states of existence {'gross'?}. Their interplay is what gives rise to our experiences and perceptions in life. They define our primary motivations and the functioning of our minds. Each Guna has its place and performs specific functions in the relative world. They are all necessary to gain the experience in life that helps us learn and grow {and/or study - this readers input}." [From the book 'Kriya Yoga' by R. Kurczak. Emphasis, this readers].

Djedefre's Wife - ''Beloved''?

Side note: "Perhaps it is the ancient importance of this Dog on the Nile that has given the popular name - the Egyptian X - to the figure formed by the stars Procyon and Betelgeuze, Naos and Phaet - with Sirius at the vertices of the two triangles and the center of the letter. On our maps Sirius marks the nose of the Dog...Some have called it Mazzaroth of the Book of Job..." [Info. on Canis Major 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

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


Analogy: ''Yet the power of the celestial light of CREATIVE SPIRIT, the solar god, lives on - whether that creative source be called Ra, Atum, Aten, Yahweh, the Christos, Ahura Mazda, or as the Lakotas call it, Wakan Tanka Kin. 'Light' is the essential mystery of the cosmos.'' [Page 20 'Dreams of Isis' / N. Ellis].

''Westward leading still proceding, guide us to.....?

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

Higher or lower aspect of Self?

A practical definition: ''In today's psychological language we can understand the Sungod as a symbol for the source of consciousness. At the collective level, he is then the creative spirit of the UNconscious that brought about the evolution of human consciousness; at the personal level he is a symbol for a higher ego or the Self.'' [Page 25 'Knowledge of the Afterlife: The Egyptian Amduat - A Quest for Immortality' / E. Hornung].

"Gnosis, is a feminine Greek noun, which means ''knowledge.'' It is often used for 'personal' {'Sophia'?} knowledge compared with 'intellectual' knowledge {eidein and/or 'Tower of Babel'?}, as with the French 'connaitre' compared with 'savoir', or the German 'kennen' rather than 'wissen'...In Latin they simply drop the Greek 'G' and ''Gno'' becomes ''No'' as in 'Nosco' meaning to ''know'' and ''Noscentia'' meaning ''knowledge'' and 'Notus' meaning ''known...The 'G' returns in the Latin ''Co-gni-tion'' meaning ''knowledge'' and 'i-gno-tus' and 'i-gna-rus' meaning ''unknown'' from which we get the word ''i-gno-rant'' and 'A-gno-stic' which means ''not knowing'', and once again this reflects the Sanskrit 'Jna' which means to ''know'' to ''perceive'' to ''understand''. [Wiki/'Gnosis'].

Knossos in relation to Gnosis?

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

Something hinted at: "The mediaeval man, for whom the basilica was designed, would have undoubtedly have found himself more deeply moved, more involved in its symbolic language, than even the most sensitive of modern visitors. It was designed for men and women who thought, felt and breathed symbols, in exercise of their triune being - of mind, soul and body..." ['The Secret Zodiac' by F. Gettings].

Question. All playtime addicts?

Mercury/sulphur and salt? As a means...?

And/or {from a different perspective?}: "The triune-brain model derives from studies of comparative neuroanatomy and behaviour. But honest introspection is not unknown in the human species, and if the triune brain model is correct, we would expect some hint of it in the history of human SELF KNOWLEDGE. The most widely known hypothesis that is at least reminiscent of the triune brain is Sigmund Freud's division of the human psyche into id, ego and super-ego..." [Page 81/82 'The Dragons of Eden' / C. Sagan].

Follow the title of the book BEFORE those first impressions TELL ONE that it is an ''outdated model''. Try Part 2.

Or even the book 'The Master game'. By Mr Hancock and Mr Bauval. Excellent research, linking the Egyptian 'religion' with the Hermetic and Christian ones by way of Gnosis, [ or more importantly; what that word - through the course of multiple generations - came to imply ], and 'its' relevance to the 'Archetypal symbol' [i.e.,those 'keys' and or 'signs']. What both authors refer to finally... as "talismanic thinking". No mention of this subjects framework however. That same framework that explains what that "talismanic thinking" is symbolic of... in relation to the individual. Only clarified; in so far; as what they believe 'its purpose' is... within their own speculative views. That same 'framework'... that this subject can only explain.

Another example..."This is an excellent work of historiography, the art that Oswald Spengler deemed the only intellectual possibility remaining to Western civilization. A thorough review of how the words ''esoteric'' ''occult'' and ''magic'' came into employment in the language of Western Europe - yet it ignores entirely the content or meaning of the texts that were given such labels. Indeed we should not expect Hanegraaff to touch upon such topics. When he choose to write a book for Cambridge University Press in the 21st century, he was robbed of his ability to speak of texts as possessing meaning in and of themselves, as opposed to historical interest. But the book that resulted from this Faustian bargain is still great reading as history...[Review {by 'Avery' /Amazon} to the book 'Esotericism and the Academy' by Wouter Hanegraaff].

horus eyeThe same could be applied to the author of 'Galactic Alignment' {if only to this reader]. Seeking to understand the alignments of solstices and equinox's in relation to polar/zenith/galactic centers - especially his main alignment hypothesis of ''the solstice meridian with the galactic equator'' in relation to ''...the real area of interest to me is not whether or not transformation will take place in the near future ; the likely questions are about the when and where, and how humans are likely to respond." Many authors of this subject mentioned as are those universal concepts that the above author gives historical data for - but only in the same context. Gnosticism - in its historical 'spiritual' position in the lineage of things - but no idea of the actual 'process' of the 'development' of an actual 'living' Gnostic. And how that process can be defined {and experienced} by way of {as one method} - objectivity. Enlarged throughout.

A more up to date attempt on same [i.e.,to understand the value of the word ''gnosis''; and its purported relevance throughout multiple generations - if only in relation to defining a subject] - will be found in the book 'The Search for Abraxas' by N. Drury and S. Skinner]. Enlarged elsewhere.


An objective eye?

"Like Plato and the teachers of the early mysteries, the gnostics made use of mythology and symbolism to say things about the nature of reality which transcend shallow, one dimensional expression. The gnostics claimed to have inherited from the past a code [i.e.,''keys'' {three?}] of spiritual knowledge; which they used in setting forth the mysteries of the new faith. Like Plato, the gnostics proposed that the actual source of the cosmos was a simple, transcendental principle that could not be expressed in words." [Chapter one, 'Jesus Christ sun of God: Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism']. Try ''logos''.

"I will open my mouth in parables, i will utter what has been hidden, since the foundation of the world." [Matthew 13.35].

''….Closer than the jugular vein''?

N.B. The Quran uses the word ''similitude'' as well as ''parable'' with the same purpose in mind, i.e.,in order to define something - that 'something' represented with the intent and meaning of those hidden ''sign/s.'' Hebrew equivalent = ''keys''.

Question. Fairy story. Adult version?

Apply all the above to 'see' {gnosis in action?} the following: "It is not just incidental that Hermes symbol is a staff with twin serpents of wisdom and understanding coiled about it. As in the Kabbala, where the central pillar holds those of left and right in balance {'three' link?}, here too the principle is the same. The mysteries were always intended to be understood in a threefold fashion: with the spirit, the mind, and the senses {'horses' ?}. Such a 'threefold' division has continued to be recognised in Western esoteric practice ever since. Sacred words, uttered in temple or lodge, echo 'three worlds': the divine, the intellectual, and the physical, bringing all three together in a rapprochement which causes them to vibrate harmoniously one with another {''simultaneously''? and/or Synchronistic?}." [Page 32/33 'The Western Way'. Vol 2].

land2"Like the initiated composers and transmitters of the Greek myths, the Christian gnostics expressed the insights of esoteric cosmology - that ''hidden pattern of creation which underlies the foundation of the world'' - in the myths and legends of the new religion.'' [Chapter one, same book].

"We have put forth for men, in this Quran every kind of parable, in order that they may receive admonition. It is a Quran in Arabic, without any crookedness [therein]: in order that they may guard against evil. Allah puts forth a parable - A man belonging to many partners at variance with each other, and a man belonging entirely to one master; are those equal in comparison? [Quran 39:27-29].

landUnderstanding this subject in its broader view defines that one paragraph, i.e.,''broader'' in relation to 'Horizon' which all cultures use as a ''sign'' or ''key'' word. That link to ''higher/lower'' which again all use in one form or another. In the above example ''one master'' relates to 'higher'. Think about it in relation to 'lower', i.e.,aspects of: that have to be ['fine tuned'?] - to define [and/or select] the most 'important' ones. That final link to the understanding of the word ''teacher'' as used by the Essenes of the ''Dead Sea Scroll'' fame. Their representation of same principle. All explained and enlarged throughout. Try ''horizon'' first, i.e.,what does it imply?

Analogy: 98th name of Allah = ''Righteous teacher'' {Ar-Rashid}.

That same 'research' that has already been written about by all the above authors [in its complete form] for countless generations. Two of its components being the 'Kabbalah', [Cabala. N.B.,authors definition of same, but read further on for its 'alternative' meaning]. Or 'Alchemy', [Emerald Tablet link], both mentioned ['Master Game'] as..."not within the scope of this book" . To understand the full 'story', understand that framework. That same framework that, within this subject, regardless of place, culture, or time-frame, bridges [key] that gap...becomes that missing link. A link to those inspirations/aspirations,[key] that lead to those first formative ideas.

Check it out - before those first impressions decide an outcome.

''Bridge'' on her left or right? As a means....?  Check it out - before those first impressions decide an outcome. Try Part 3.

"The ancient Greek root word for 'symbol' meant '' something that is thrown across,'' like a bridge between sacred and profane worlds, or between inner and outer realities." [Chapter eleven, 'Dreams of Isis: A Woman's Spiritual Sojourn' by Normandi Ellis].


"The Quran has an outer meaning and an inner meaning." [Quote by Muhammad]........"the outer knowledge which is the shell, protects the inner knowledge which is the seed." [Page 22, 39 of the book, 'Secret of Secrets'].

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

Represented with some as 'The language of the Birds' of which 'Solomon' was 'ruler'. Should not 'wisdom' be the natural ’outcome’ ['ruler'], of its 'own development'? By way of aspirations/ inspirations that have led to new ideas/forms? Question. If the word 'Solomon' is symbolic. What does that mean for his 'wives' and other 'female/associates'...especially in relation to 'Song of Songs'. Who or what is being 'spoken' to? Answer found in such books as 'Book of Shadows'. Mentioned elsewhere. Or 'The lost language of Symbolism'. Chapter eight. By H.Bayley.

'The Search for the Beloved' / J. Houston.

"I, wisdom dwell in prudence, and i possess knowledge and discretion...I love those who love me, and those who seek me, find me...My fruit is better than gold...When there were no depths, i was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water." [Proverbs viii, 12, 17, 19]

SIDE NOTE: "...I had not realized it until i started my research on this subject, but the standard lily, which may well have grown in the Middle East in the Solomonic era, has a petal configuration very close to the interlocking triangles of Solomon's seal...This would accord with the idea of harmony. But more importantly, the number six has a direct relationship to the lily." Enlarged elsewhere.

Question. What does the ''lily'' represent? If only within the context of this subject.

"The Kingdom of Heaven is within you, [hence the link to the word ''esoteric'',i.e.,'inner' or 'within' ]. The time has come for external forms and expressions to be left behind. There is no Temple in the heavenly Jerusalem, for religion has no place in heaven. Man is his own temple, and his heart is the altar." [First chapter, first page, first paragraph of the book 'The Mind of Christ: Meditations on Christian Themes' by Anthony Duncan]. Understand those ''keys'' to define something other than the obvious - before asking those bigger questions.

Working example: Entrance to the Gt. Pyramid offset by 24 feet. ''23'' TO ENLARGE.

REFRESHER: "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it may be with fear, has also given rise to re-ligion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness." [Albert Einstein].

In the spiritual SENSE of the word?

'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / Marian Green].

OR..."St Bernard of Clairvaux's famous and highly influential sermons on the Song of Songs adopted the same language of 'love', of the 'bride' yearning for the 'groom'. He talked of the 'kisses' of contemplation, the 'mystic kiss,' sweet 'embraces' and rapt joys. This could have been written by Rumi or Ibn Arabi... 'When he has entered into me, he has brought my soul alive...He has set fire to my heart and softened it too. He is living and powerful." [Chapter 30, 'The Sacred History']. Understanding this subjects symbolism [emphasized, i.e.,keys], gives clues to its true meaning. Before the reader asks of him / her self those bigger questions........Why? Why go to all this effort.

"From my incompleteness to my completeness, and from my inclination to my equilibrium. From my grandeur to my beauty, and from my splendor to my majesty. From my scattering to my gathering, and from my exclusion to my re-union. From my baseness to my preciousness, and from my stones to my pearls"......"So that i might bring to light what lies hidden in nights explain the mysteries roots, and express the realities enigmas." [ Quote by Ibn Arabi. Taken from the first chapter ' The Universal Tree and the Four Birds'].

Try ''Pearls''.

Landscape equivalent. ''Baseness'' = 1st step {stage?} represented at the base of say a 'mountain'. 'Golden Child'?

Don't forget those first impressions, i.e.,first impression / opinion on the above could be...narcissism. [ It was with this reader]. Remember ''symbolic'' of something. A representation of something, in relation, more often than not, to an understanding, of the 'self', [within the bigger picture], i.e.,what some of these authors refer to as, the 'micro' within the 'macro.'

''He who walked with god?'' {mind set?}. A ''Belly'' full of something? Try that one.

"When they become self-aware like 'Adam', [key] they may reveal news of the 'Knower' and that which He knows. One of them dove down into the ocean of Oneness and said, 'I am the truth'. Another rode in a boat on the same ocean, and told of how near or far he was from shore. One looks on the outside and talks of dry land, while gathering shells, and the other plunges into the ocean and gets the pearl. One starts talking about the bits and parts of things, how they appear and function. Another begins telling of the Eternal one and then of creatures who live and die. One speaks of long curls of hair, the 'beauty' spot, the curves of her eyebrows, the 'beloved' man in dim candle light, [key] passing a goblet of wine. The other speaks only of himself and his opinions. And the other loses himself in idol's love, identifying himself with the monks rope around his waist. Each one speaks the language native to the 'level' he has reached, and it is hard to understand what he says.... You the seeker of understanding, you must strive [key] to learn the meaning of what they say." [Extract taken from a poem by the Persian Sufi known as Mahmud Shabistari. From the book 'The Tree of Being' by Ibn Arabi].

N.B. Orion = The Great Strider. Strive / stride . All as a means...?


Landscape equivalent..."Faces west across The Wash, making it one of a few places along the East coast where the sun can be seen to set across the sea." - It also marks the beginning {east?} of the Peddars Way. Enlarged throughout. ''Line of sight''? Try ''Sirius'' in relation to ''Syria'' - as a means...?

As an example..." There is a tradition that when the name solomon was first translated it was in an alchemical form. This means it would have been Sol Amon {Omon}. What is immediately noticeable is the word Sol - a word for the sun. The word Amon has several interpretations. One was of the hidden sun: the sun one can no longer see once it has set below the western horizon. It was a word for the moon, the dominant light in the sky after the sun set. Thus, the temple of Sol Amon would be the temple of the 'sun' and 'moon'. I was very skeptical about this two word connotation until an acquaintance who had been born and brought up in East Africa, and who followed religious beliefs that were not those of mainstream western Europe, commented that where he was raised as a child, Solomon was always two words..." [From the book by K. Gest. Mentioned elsewhere. Emphasis, this readers].

''Hidden'' in relation to 'Embossed/Debossed' - enlarged elsewhere.

"And now that we replace one message by another....since god is fully aware of what he bestows from on high, step by step....they [who deny the truth] are wont to say, "You but invented it!" Nay but most of them do not understand it! Say: "Holy inspiration has brought it down from your sustainer by stages, setting forth the truth, so that it might give firmness to those who have attained to faith, and provide guidance and a glad tiding to all who have surrendered themselves to god." [Quran, 16: 101-102. Emphasis, this readers]. Extract taken from page 172, 'The Book of Revelations' by Kabir Helminski.

".....Paul insisted that ''Among the initiates [teleioi] we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of 'god', which god decreed before the ages for our glorification." [1 Corinthians 2.6-7].

Or "....there exists in every human being, a 'divine' soul. This is the first spark of consciousness beyond that of zoological species, beyond even the consciousness of a higher or more developed animal, and is directly connected to divine essence. This connection of the divine soul, in the form of a line drawn from above, extends from the primal level called 'soul' which exists in one form or another in every individual, being hidden and veiled as a spark of a higher perception, of a superior aspiration, and touches the higher level, which is spirit. This level is known as the world of formation." [page 56, 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Link to ''foundation.'' And thereafter - possibilities of. See it? Hebrew equivalent.

Side note. ''Divine essence'' = soul {represented with the colour white}. Spirit = fire {''spark''} represented with the colour red.

"The coastal cliffs include the type section of the 'Hunstanton Formation' of lower reddish limestone...This is topped by a white chalk layer..."

That 'formation' which eventually [through a learning process] becomes something more substantial [represented as a 'stone' or 'pearl'] - what eventually becomes known as the philosophers stone.

"The Hunstanton Formation is a lithostratigraphic name applied to an early Cretaceous limestone succession in Eastern England which was formerly known as the Red Chalk. This type section is at Hunstanton cliff In N/W Norfolk."

Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

"Conscience is gods presence with man." [Abraham Lincoln].

Understanding this subjects most commonly used key word,i.e.,'divine', deciphers the core essence of this subjects 'framework'. The core essence of all 'esoteric' literature. Found within. That understanding also explains why the subject of the 'psyche' is used as 'its' main teaching aid. Clue. You cannot have one without the other; but one has to come before the other.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

"...and it is in we ourselves that the key to essential history of humankind is to be found." [Quote by Tomberg].

"For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few." [Matthew vii, 14].

'Gates of perception'? Qena?

N.B. Remember, that was written 2000 years ago. These days many more have found that ''path''. OR would that be ''mind set''?

"The story of the 'divine spark' is our story too, as we have already seen. It is the skilful use of this story - whether one uses the Christian model or another - which brings us out of the 'vale of tears' into the inner kingdom." [Page 82 'The Western Way'. Vol 2].

"Your house of many mansions is not built by hands. It is situated within yourself and is an essential and permanent part of you. It is your citadel. Picture yourself standing within its portals and take conscious possession of your property." [From the book 'The Silent Road' by W. T. Pole].

"A true 'Son' possesses his 'fathers' [link to 'son of', explained elsewhere], essence and secret both in his exterior appearance and in his inner being. The Prophet explains this secret as, ...' a special knowledge like a hidden treasure that only those who know the Essence of 'god' can find. Yet when the mystery is revealed, no one who is conscious and sincere can deny it." [Chapter 5, 'The Secret of Secrets' by Al - Jilani].

Something extra: "The phrase ''through the seven Worlds of Maya'' refers here to the seven globes of the planetary chain and the seven rounds, or the 49 stations of active existence that are before the ''Spark'' or Monad, at the beginning of every ''Great Life Cycle'' or Manvantara. The ''thread of Fohat'' is the thread of life before referred to. This relates to the greatest problem of philosophy - the physical and substantial nature of life, the independent nature of which is denied by modern science because that science is unable to comprehend it." [Page 238 ' The Secret Doctrine' / H. P Blavatsky].

"It is mainly as a 'visionary' of the realm of the departed; the Spiritual World; that Swedenborg is usually thought of and quoted - particularly by those who have not actually read him. Others see him as a highly unorthodox even heretical theologian, difficult to read, but good at pointing out all the illogicalities and flaws of traditional Christian theology. Not so well known, or realized, was his extraordinary ability to correctly anticipate many essential areas of modern physics, physiology, and key spiritual teachings of the New age. No explanation in terms of ' lucky ' or unco- ordinated, inspired guesses satisfactory accounts for the breath and depth of his 'visionary' insight into these key areas. His thought is far too integrated and cohesive for that, and indicates that he discovered some essential key to wisdom, far surpassing that of his contemporaries, or indeed, of most men. And this key is one which may be seen to be highly relevant to the growing endeavour of our own grasp holistically the nature of the physical and spiritual dimensions of life." [First page/ preface/ to the book 'Emanuel Swedenborg' by M. Stanley. Recall what 'holistically' is a reference to. Together with...


A 'foundation'? Looking towards the 'horizon'? Hair out of ones eyes? Minds eye? Try ''topknot''. As a means....?

"In the Christian tradition the symbolism of the 'corner stone' is based on the following text: 'The stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner', or more exactly, 'the head of the angle'[caput anguli]. What is strange is that this symbolism is usually misunderstood due to a common confusion between the 'corner stone' and 'foundation stone', referred to in the even better known text: 'You are Peter, and on this rock i will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it'. This confusion is strange, we say, because from the specifically Christian point of view it amounts to confusing St Peter with Christ himself, since it is the latter, who is expressively designated as the 'corner stone', as shown by the following passage from St Paul: 'So then you are...built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone [summo angulari laptide], in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the 'Lord'; in whom you are also built into it [coedificamini] for a dwelling place of 'god' in the Spirit.'' [Chapter 43, 'Symbols of Sacred Science' by Rene Guenon]. Recall what 'stone' represents regardless whether 'corner' or 'foundation'. The 'head' however is related, in one form or another, to the symbolism of the 'son of'. Explained within. Understanding 'Djedefre' in relation to 'father' and 'youngest' gives clues as to those 'monuments' true ''intent and purpose.''

""The nature of the Stone is central to our dilemma as students of the esoteric tradition; it is both quest and destination, both ourselves and other, tool and product, it is the 'eye' that observes and cannot see itself, knowing itself through exhaustion of all possibilities through experiment, [and/or study. This readers input]. It is indeed, the mystery of awareness." [Extract from the book by M. Katz].

alchemy marriage

A representation of something, OTHER than the obvious. The real question, however is .Why go to all this effort?

The Alchemy equivalent explained within the word "Conjunction" [ 'The Emerald Tablet'. Chapter eight. D. Hauck, and/or his web site ,i.e., ]..."Acknowledging all true parts of both him/herself and the universe, resulting in the union of his/her conscious and subconscious mind, which is the sacred marriage of the masculine/feminine parts of his/her being". Hermetic equivalent...’The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz’ By J. Godwin.

Or what Sri Gurudev calls the, "One Truth - or light, that lays behind all names and forms."

Beginning to 'see' anything?

"Perhaps the most important of these inner laws, which need fresh exploration today, are the masculine and feminine principles. These terms do not necessary convey to the average reader any very definite idea. By 'principle' i mean an essence, or inner law, not as a law that is imposed by a legal authority but rather using the term as it is used in science, where we speak of the law of gravity, the laws of mathematics, or the law of evolution. These laws or principles are inherent in the nature of things and function unerringly and inevitably." [Chapter one, 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern' by M. Esther Harding].

Revision. Understanding the above; together with the paragraph in bold print; defines the following..."Birth is then a 'forgetting' of heaven and simultaneously a recall to earth. This is not so with the ''holy birth''. Here it is a remembrance of the 'divine' which is the force which accomplishes 'incarnation'. It is not thanks to forgetting of the divine that the soul is then incarnated, but rather thanks to its remembering." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. All aspects of which enlarged elsewhere, i.e.,link to ''fall'' symbolism and the difference and meaning of ''reincarnation'' and ''incarnation''. But first try ''forgetting'' in the usual box.

monas Hieroglyphica

Sun / Moon / Cross / Cup symbolism . All represented in human form. A representation of something OUTSIDE of the obvious. Parts within the whole. The Micro within the Macro. Other examples elsewhere.

Those same 'masculine/feminine' aspects that explain what such 'monuments' as the Sphinx, is a true representation of. Explained within.' [ Use the 'find' indicator]. A more up-to- date presentation of same especially from a practical day to day perspective, relative to each individual could be....'Growing Into Light'. Max. F. Long. and 'The Wisdom of the Fourth Way'. Theodore Nottingham. [Based on Gurdjieff work]. Or even, for a more practical and possible scientific link , chapter four of Mr Wilcocks most recent book, 'The Synchronicity Key'. Linking, the possibility, of those male / female [positive / negative aspects] 'archetypes' with the 'photon'. Don't forget those first impressions.

''What is the nature of matter? Within conventional science, the reductionist, materialist view asserts that matter is solely physical. Hauschka shows that open minded study, based on qualitative observation and quantitative research [i.e.,in this subjects case; that would be all the way back to the 'oral'- start point], can overcome this now standardized view. Without denying the laws of matter, he shows the limitations of a science restricted by them, and points to new research which indicates the primal nature of spirit."[ Back cover to the book 'The Nature of Substance: Spirit and Matter' by R. Hauschka].

Question. Fiction or non fiction?

"Knowledge also keeps practitioners away from involuntary imprudence." [Extract - introduction to the book 'The Experience of Eternity' by J. Dubuis].

Christian equivalent..."In the Gospel of Philip it is said, that Jesus 'loved' her more than all the disciples and used to 'kiss' her often on her mouth, [in reference to Mary Magdalene]. The disciples complain that he loves her more than all of them, and he does not deny it. This passage has led people to speculate that Jesus and Mary were married, but as we shall see later, what is being referred to here is an experience of ''intense mystical bliss,'' a 'mystical marriage'". [Chapter 22, 'The Sacred History' by Jonathan Black]. N.B. Don't ever FORGET those first impressions, i.e.,one could also use the word...euphoria, in relation to an understanding. After all, don't we all feel 'elated' after an 'understanding' has taken place, regardless of subject? Rather than exaggerate and 'play' on those same 'feelings'. Hence the link to the benefit of being objective.

"As Mary says herself in her Gospel, 'Where the mind is, there is 'treasure' [key]".

"And so we turn again to the ancient differentiation of male and female, arising from the depths of the unconscious in the form of symbols whose eternal reality is still exemplified to us in the everyday experience of the Great Light which rules the day of reason and intellect, and the Lessor Light which rules the night of instinct and the shadowy perceptions of the inner intuitive world." [Chapter one, 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'].

That link to 'sun' and 'moon' symbolism. Purpose of.

The Egyptian equivalent being a representation of ‘Nefertiti’ in relation to ‘indicated’ by such authors as Joyce Tyldesley in her book ‘Nefertiti’. The difference being: The Hebrews took that concept one stage ‘further’. Both individuals were now symbolic of something else. Think about it. Compare same with...’Unconscious came a beauty’. Chapter seven. ’The Book of Nature’. By C.Helminshi. A piece of prose explaining the same concept...within horizontal/vertical, [ Keys ]. Explained elsewhere. New testament [and Hindu] equivalent...the word 'Beatitude', [purpose of], in relation to 'parables.' Explained elsewhere. Or the word 'Tipheret' relative to the Hebrew 'tree' of life.

The 'Chemical Wedding' being a good example of the purpose 'behind' the subject...with the reader in mind. That same overall subject that such books as 'The Master Game' by G.Hancock and R.Bauval try to define if only within 'its' historical context, but because they have not as yet been able to 'get their heads around' it, return with that safe, yet honest reply..."not within the scope of this book". The word 'forest' used within the same 'story' ['king Arthur'] as is 'castle' and 'paths'. [Chapter thirteen, 'The Master Game']. All key words in unlocking the overall subject, and to the understanding of its connection to a multitude of other 'subjects'. I.e. Within Chapter two of 'The Mystical Dimensions of Islam' / page 61 / quote..."Does he not remind us of the age old mythological tales in which the 'hero' [key. Link to 'ego']... goes into the forest; the symbol of the unconscious; in order to overcome the 'animals', which represent his lower instincts." That together with the inset picture of 'King' [key] Arthur riding his 'horse' through a 'forest' towards a 'castle' [temple link] in the distance. [New view over Atlantis./J.Michell] clues when all 'assembled' as to the meaning of 'animal' symbolism on such structures as those at Gobekli- tepe, in relation to 'higher/lower'.

"You can only go half way into the darkest forest; then you are coming out the other side." Chinese proverb.

''The best way out is always through." Robert Frost. ['Alone' / History Channel].

''Crossing the Sirat Bridge depends on everybody's light. Some will cross it in the twinkling of an eye; some, like lightning; some, like a falling star; some, like a running horse. He who has very little light will creep facedown. His hands and feet will slip, and he will cling to it again. At long last, he will break free from it by creeping and creeping.'' [Tabarani / Wiki].

'Fool' of the Tarot?

''ON the way home after one especially arduous preaching tour on foot, Cuthbert’s young companion was relieved to hear him raise the subject of food. “I have been thinking about that” said the lad anxiously. “It’s a long way back. We brought nothing to eat, and made no inquiries about inns.”

Cuthbert glanced at him. “You must learn to have faith, my boy. Look there,” he added, pointing to an eagle flying above the river. “Even she might feed us, if God wished it.” Presently, they saw the eagle standing on the bank with something at her feet. “Run and see what she has for us” said Cuthbert.

The lad soon came back with a handsome fish. “What!” cried Cuthbert. “Have you not left half for our maidservant?” When this was mended, they continued their journey. Almost at once, they came to a village, where Cuthbert had the fish broiled, and shared it with everyone.'' ['Cuthbert, the Eagle and the Fish''].

Co - Regent?

Working example: A dog named 'fish'. {'Chris Packham: The Walk That Made Me' / BBC 2}.

Something to ponder on: ''Fish on Friday! He goes a long way toward explaining this joke in relation to the Princess. Divine Art comes in catching this merry and royal fish or little bather (or heir) in your sea -- like catching a unicorn in a virgin's lap ("within the forest of the work are  found the twin natures..."), that is, "the vessel of the fish."

Vesica Pisces?

''It's in the Mutus Liber and later glosses thereon; Magaphon follows 'Espagnet and Fulcanelli follows Magaphon.'' [Roberet Scott Martin]

Who was Fulcanelli. He or a She?

A working example: ''I turned thirteen and thirty on friday the 13th so i've always considered it  a lucky day for me. In the Old Religion, Friday was a day devoted to the goddess - Freya, which is where the name Friday comes from. Friday was also the day of Venus in the Roman and Italian tradition. It was originally a day sacred to the goddess....but like many aspects of the Old Religion it was turned around to be considered unlucky.'' [Page 187/8 'The Book of Shadows'].

Living in the present or past?: 'The Russian people are better off without the west' - especially  if like me - you have aquired plenty of wealth to keep one warm in the coming cold winters of discontent. Public funds redirected - but not for personel use of course -  [K.G.B. mindset of previous days gone by].

N.B. Christ 'died' on Friday.  The Romans under {Nero?} hid the tomb 'UNDER' a temple dedicated to Venus. It was only because of this link that Constantine found it.

Coincidence or a ...?

Burnt scones in relation to funerary cakes?

As seen from a different perspective..."King Arthur - a 'King' is a magical image of the Sephirah Tiphareth, the centre of harmony, the 'Christ Centre'. The intention of this and all exercises in 'magical meditation' is self knowledge, the discovery of the true self..." [From the chapter entitled 'High Quests and Holy Grails' from the book by A. Duncan].



Question. What is this subjects fixation about in relation to ''higher/ lower''. What is it? Why should it be important? Answers found within....i.e.,as an example...

"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].

A work in {progress?} i.e.,example of...

Conversation between J. Theakston {narrator} and T. Webster {local historian}...

J. T. "I read a theory, that the monks made the whole thing up and that the legend of Arthur just attracts pilgrims which is good for business."

T. W. "Its a story at the end of the day - an archetypal story - and that's whats really important - and not the in's and out's of it." ['Forbidden History: In Search of the Real King Arthur' / Narrated by J. Theakston]. Enlarged elsewhere. Try ''archetype''.

As is the original intention of: "Often labelled merely as 'grotesque' or a 'gargoyle', the Green Man can be found all over Western Europe and parts of Asia and North Africa. He is not a gargoyle, he is an archetypal image..." [Introduction to the book: 'The Green Man' / M. Harding]. All as a means...?

"The Green Man has a story to tell us - if only we knew how to listen." [Same book].

"In some teachings it is termed ''inward turning,'' though usually in Hindu philosophy that term is used, as meaning inner organ, for the various mental faculties taken as a whole. It is the drawbridge of the inner fortress, the gateway leading to 'immortality', the mediator through which the voice of the 'higher' is heard by the lower." [Introduction, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita' by Sri Krishna Prem]. That link to the word ''Teacher'' as found and speculated on in the 'Dead Sea Scroll' texts. Explained elsewhere.

Good or bad?

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

Another example [in its basic form] could be described as that inner voice we have a conversation with sometimes. The one we have in order to decide one way or the other, on a next course of 'action'. The outcome of which could lead to a positive or negative result. Getting used to one or the other [''repetitive habit''] determines in what 'direction' we go........

'Mindfulness' by Mark Williams. ''Old wisdom for modern times.'' Quote on the same [BBC World Service. March 2015]. Today's new 'fad' on those ancient principles of Buddhism. Or more importantly what this subject has always referred to as 'meditation.' Its true meaning. The result of both however becomes the same - an understanding of the 'self'. The Micro within the Macro.

And/or: ''Like the Grail legends, the alchemists techniques provided a structured journey, deeply embedded in symbolism, through which the would be initiate could seek the 'shining jewel' of refined spirit within him/her....One road leads inwards, to the maze at the heart of our inner castle, the other road, scattered with jewels and the remains of burnt out failures, leads to the world of every day toil and achievement. You are standing at that crossroads, and guilded by whatever steps you may have already taken on both of those ways, now you may go forward on your chosen path.'' [Final paragraph 'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / M. Green].

Burkhan Khaldun. Pines?

"......obedience to the voice of the Great Teacher in his heart. That soundless voice, speaking within his heart, drowns for him all the clamourous judgements of the world. Listening ever to the Voice of that inner Lord, he pursues his way, unperturbed as the earth is unperturbed, firm as a pillar, clear as a wave-less lake." [ Chapter 12, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita']. That link to the ''teacher'' of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Explained within.

From a different perspective {i.e., in mythic form}: ''Bata tells Anubis he is going to live in the Valley of the Pine, where he will remove his heart and place it at the top of a pine tree. More over, Anubis {his brother} can make amends for the wrong that has been done to him by searching for his heart should the pine tree ever be cut down. If he finds it he should place it in a 'jar' of cool water, where it will revive, for it is from this living heart that Bata will be regenerated.'' [ New Kingdom tale of the Two Brothers: Page 89 'Hathor Rising' / A. Roberts].

Recall the ''hearts'' of Tutankhamun and Suleiman the Great.

Side note: 'Three' large holes found - a short distance away - from Stonehenge named Mesolithic Post Holes:

''When this pine charcoal were carbon dated it was found to be some 10000 years old, over twice the age of any other structure at Stonehenge. At this time the during the Mesolithic period the whole area would have been covered with forests of birch, pine, hazel, oak and elm with scattered patches of open grassland.

As yet we know little about why these three timbers were erected, whether an area was cleared, whether it was a natural forest glade, or even how TALL the timbers were.''

And/or: ''The Pinaceae, or pine family, are conifer trees or shrubs, including many of the well-known conifers of commercial importance such as CEDARS, firs, hemlocks, larches, pines and spruces. The family is included in the order Pinales, formerly known as Coniferales.'' Wikipedia

"Once the resolve is made and kept to act in future for the higher not the lower self, progress is speedy, and the path is entered on which leads at last to the Eternal Peace. Though they will many times be fallings off and failures, yet once the link with the Divine Self has been established the disciple cannot fall again into utter darkness. Something has awakened within him which will never let him rest again in matter, and, though at times he may even fight against it, the inner pull will ever and again be felt, and like a big fish held on a slender line he will eventually be brought out of the 'stream' to land." [Link to 'C' . This readers input. Chapter 9, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita'].

"The name 'Percival' means 'coming through the vale'. Percival had journeyed beyond pain and humiliation until he finally found the 'kingly' part of himself". Think about it relative to Freemasonries equivalent of same, by way of 'Hiram Abif.' Found within. [Or Parzifal]. Together with what 'King' and/or 'Lord' represent, within this subject.

"Vale, which is the Latin equivalent of ' farewell', is said to be repeated three times out of respect for the three [higher] principles of human constitution. In some esoteric literature, the word has been hidden behind such Green Language as ' three veils' or 'three valleys' etc. [Final page, chapter one, 'The Zelator'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Question. What are those 'three' ?

REFRESHER: "The story of the 'divine spark' is our story too, as we have already seen. It is the skilful use of this story - whether one uses the Christian model or another - which brings us out of the 'vale of tears' into the inner kingdom.

"What is a symbol anyway? In effect, it is the good old ''outward sign of an inward grace,'' or a practical link between objective and subjective existence. It is a body containing a soul, matter holding a meaning, a focus of force, a condenser of consciousness, or a ''thought tank." Anything and everything can be a symbol. Whatsoever connects consciousness, and life together from one level to another, or even to different points on the same level is a symbol. Figures, letters, words and ideographs are very good examples of symbols, since these join thinking with living." [ Chapter 3, of the book by William Gray].

A connection is therefore made - in that internal sense of the word i.e., in relation to the ''divine bit''. 'See' that deciphers ALL within.

From a different perspective: ''Here, in this most basic of symbols, the Tao is a template for understanding Spirit in a pagan context. Spirit can be seen as the all-encompassing all- the ultimate reality. YET when we approach this 'ultimate realty', we immediately encounter a basic polarity. Masculine and Feminine. Yang and yin. God and Goddess.'' [Page 75 'Idiots Guide to Paganism' / C. McColman].

Dark night of the soul? or just a mind set?

Side note: The English word 'focus' comes from the Latin for 'fireplace'. ['The Chase' / ITV / 31.1.22].

Hestia to enlarge.

''Impulse'' beginning on the outside edge?

Analogy: "In the begining an impulse must have come from somewhere....In this history we shall see how for some the birth of the universe, the mysterious transition from no-matter to matter has been explained in just such a way. They have envisaged an impulse squeezing out of another dimension {String/Brane theory?] into this one - and they have conceived of this other dimension as the 'mind of god'....'' [ Page 30 'The Secret History of the World' / J. Black].

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

Follow the title of the book to get to the {root?} of the subject - if only from a top-down perspective.

"The material world is not therefore sheer illusion. It is not something that exists nowhere, or has no ontological status. It has a level of reality because everything that exists on the material plane has a corresponding existence in the higher, more spiritual planes. In this sense the whole world is a forest of symbols, although the meaning of these symbols maybe hidden from everyday human intelligence". [Both quotes taken from chapters 27, 28 'The Sacred History'].

Try 'trees' / 'woods' / 'soil' / etc.

"You can only go half way into the darkest forest; then you are coming out the other side." Chinese proverb.

A working example: 'Lost Treasures of the Maya: Secret Underworld' / 2021.  Albert Lin looking for clues as to who and what were the 'Snake Kings'. Those same Snake Kings who became the dominant culture among several others {'united'?} in the FORESTS of the South America's. Enlarged elsewhere.

Where the 'grass' is greener?

And/or: ''Jung pointed the way toward a most imortant feature of the new Gnosticism when he said that where individual development is demanded, all methods must be abondened. He considered individuality as unique, unpredictable and uninterpretable. In his view, all human beings are pathfinders, hewing their way through a dense forest. The established systems and forms of knowledge can do no more than put up signposts and indicate the explored roads  that lead to the edge of this 'forest' where the task of solitary exploration begins.'' [Page 34 'The Gnostic Jung' / S. Hoeller].

A working example: ''Your ideal is to reach the goal.  You may reach it by either going through a thorny forest or along a good road.'' [Page 352 'The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna'].

'Cloud of Unknowing'?

Humbaba. The {'demon'} guardian of the Cedar forest - in the Gilgamesh epic.

"The symbol arises in a sphere in which the nature of a thing is profoundly understood and seen in its relationship to everything else. Hence, in going within, Swedenborg worked through a forest of symbolism to arrive at the source of this process....the Divine itself." [Chapter eight, 'The Presence of Other Worlds']. Understanding of.

The real question, however, is the usual one. Why? Why go to all this effort.

The author of 'The Zen and Art of Motorcycle Maintenance' attempts to do the same but with the word ''quality.''[ in relation to understanding the essence and purpose of a 'normal' every day existence]. If he had included this subject within his personal 'hypothesis'; especially the attempt to understand what this subject infers by the word ''divine'' within ones personal 'existence' [but now from a broader outlook ]; then that same author may not have given himself the 'headache' that he ended up with. [Put ''quality'' in the search box].

Side note: "Quality in itself is creative power.'' ['Her-Bak'].

'The 12 Astrological Houses: The 'Way' {royal?} of Creative Accomplishment' / Dane Rudhyar.

The same could be said for both Descartes and Ghazali of which the ''Cartesian circle'' was used by Descartes to define that inner impasse. The remedy however was the same. Question. What does that imply?

The same could be said {i.e.,with that 'broader' view in mind} in relation to: "I spent many years struggling with this idea as well. Perhaps it is best not to complicate it too much or one will forever be twisting and bending one's mind over it. Self-remembering is the English translation of what Gurdjieff named in French ''Le rappelle de soi''. That verb {'rappeller'} has more to do with bringing back into awareness a 'quality of being' which was ours before we became lost in the madness that is called adult life." ['The Wisdom of the 4th Way' / T. Nottingham].

A ''backwards'' movement?

''Self-remembering'' in relation to the question: "How can i learn to know the good 'I''s, as i practice self observation ?...but i would like to know a little more about how i can identify and support the good 'I's. " [Same book]. Follow the title of the book to gain an understanding of 'its' relationship to the subject as a whole.

"There is a correlation - not in measure, but rather in nature - between the scale below, 'effort' and the scale above, 'gift', of the ''heaven / earth'' balance. The correlation between effort below and gift from above, is not, i repeat one of measure or quantity, but rather of one of substance or quality." [Chapter 8, [the Justice Card], 'Meditations on the Tarot' by Tomberg]. Put ''gift'' in the search box.

Quantity/Quality used as a means....? {''Dualism'' link}.

"Life is what happens to you when you are busy doing other things." John Lennon.

"The spirit in which you do something is often as important as the act itself" Taken from the book 'Mindfulness'. Mentioned elsewhere.

"As Owen Barfield records, the Greek word for 'potential' seems to take its modern meaning from Aristotle: it is one of those words which was transmitted to the West through Latin translations. The Greek word 'posotes' [which Barfield delightfully translates as 'how-muchness'] seems to have been an analogy for Plato's 'poiotes' ['whatness'] which gave us the word 'quality', since Cicero took the Latin equivalent, 'qualis'. The word was probably from the verb to quantify. It is, as Barfield remarks later in the same book, one of those many words which has grown and developed in the 'long, agonizing struggle' to express the relationship between Spirit and matter." [Bibliographic notes to chapter 4, of the book 'The Zelator']. Put ''potential'' in the usual box.

Quality/Quantity as a means...?

What the authors of 'The Master Game' refer to as "Dualist religions",i.e.,in relation to higher/lower. [Chapter fifteen, P.378],i.e.,"A central concept shared by all the dualist religions that we traced in Part one, is that of emanation [chakras link]. In the simplest possible terms it is conceived of as a conscious or unconscious [known/unknown link] creative act of the pure and unassailable spiritual godhead,[explained within] forming manifestations [aspects of..both positive/negative, in relation to a 'balance'] of him/her/itself that then pursue an independent [freedom of will within cause and effect] existence". [Words in brackets, this readers input]. Try ''dualist'' to see what the author has not yet defined.

Understanding this subjects 'framework' way of 'key' words/ relation to the 'divine bit' gives logic to the above quote. Try it. Repeat the sentence back...without the extra 'input'. Did you understand it? If not. Try it later, when more is learned about those 'essentials'. As you do with any subject; in its early stages.

From a different perspective {simplified?}: "This is the beginning of the Duel, the struggle between the Personal Will and the Will to Light." ['The Opening of the Way'. Enlarged elsewhere].

Tortoise or turtle? ''Raised hands'' = 'Wet' or 'Dry'? As a means....?

"Examining further, he finds that the ancient philosophy took cognizance of the phenomenon of the dual mind, and accounted for it by the theory of Mental Gender. This idea of 'mental gender' may be explained in a few words to the students who may be familiar with the modern theories alluded to. The Masculine Principle of the mind corresponds to the so called Objective mind; Conscious mind; Voluntary mind; Active mind. The Feminine Principle of the mind corresponds to the so called Subjective mind; Subconscious mind; Involuntary mind; Passive mind.....These aspects of mind, the Masculine and Feminine Principles, the ''I'' and the ''me,'' considered in connection with the well known mental and psychic phenomena, gives the master key to these dimly known regions of mental operation and manifestation....." [Chapter 14, The Kabalion' by The Yogi Publications Society....].

Those [concepts?] of ''i'' and ''me'' both found in all religious [doctrines?] especially the Bible and the Quran. Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one? Enlarged elsewhere.

A more simplified description [if only for this reader]- of that same 'potential' that is [only] alluded to in the above paragraphs and yet entails all that one needs to be inspired by in order to delve deeper into its [possible] ''mysteries'' could be..."There is an animal in man, and there is a god in man [''divine bit'' link]. In order to produce a harmonised microcosm these aspects of our nature have to be firstly acknowledged: it is then that the self may be transformed. Perhaps the 'God' which best symbolises this 'mystical' venture is the one who is both a man and a hawk. He who is of the 'Sun' and whose legs are coiling serpents; symbol of wisdom reaching down to the earth. He who holds the sacred shield...and whose name is Abraxas." [ Final paragraph of the book by N. Drury and S. Skinner]. Try ''falcon''.

As it does with the following quote, taken from the most recent publication by J. Black ['The Sacred History']..."I have written this book partly to ask an outrageous question: what if the claims of world religions are true? What would history look like then? Is it possible to give an account of creation which is creationist but cannot be instantly dismissed as absurd by scientists."

The Zodiac. The meaning of which...'A circle of animals.'

The Zodiac. The meaning of which A circle of animals. Think about it, relative to the Precession of the Equinoxes. East to West, relative to South and North. OR lower relative to higher

As an example, in relation to the above, all 'animals' are used as symbolism for the 'lower' half. In Islam and/or Sufism the word 'Nafs' [mentioned within], describes that same 'lower' potential. All those animal 'aspects'--as in anything in life-- possess both positive/negative 'attributes' especially those that are deemed 'friendly'[positive] within the human race, i.e., dogs/horses etc. Those positive 'attributes' allow that u-turn [key] to take place, i.e.,'lower' to 'higher',[figuratively speaking, i.e., as a representation of]. As an example of one of 'its' physical [macro] representation...Canis minor in relation to Canis Major 'by way of',[represented] by the Heliacal rising of Sirius [explained within], in relation to Orion, whom are all behind, following. Orion [representational of - the 'individual' ].... has to become aware of that, as yet, to be discovered unknown state, represented in its 'known' state as the three stars 'under his belt'. That unknown/known state represented either as movement left to right or right to left depending on story/author. Or as explained in chapter seven of J.Naydler's book of a scene showing dogs [key] chasing gazelles [key], in the 'positive' chasing the 'negative' sense... the 'gazelle ['red' gazelle especially] being one of 'sets' related animals,[explained elsewhere]. Other examples within. i.e., that possible positive potential yet to be realized. More than likely therefore, to be 'associated' [in 'story' form] with the 'unconscious'.

Analogy with same intent..."For the zodiac is that which the human soul knows unconsciously - it is present and active only in his bowels [i.e.,indicative of 'lower half'] - in the depths of his being - from whence it renders him weak or strong, fertile or arid, fervent or tepid, according to whether he is harmony or not with its 'teaching' impulse." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 19' ].

A working example {that universal one?}: "The aim determines the journey...Horus, who wins his mastership by subduing the animal forces one by one." ['Her-Bak'].

A working example {that very first one?}: "In the catalogues of Homer and Ptolemy, some constellations are more closely comparable than others, and this may be due to the ways in which constellations were perceived in different ages. Astronomers since Ptolemy have rearranged the outlines and boundaries of constellations and from time to time have moved stars from one to another; there is no reason to think that in the nine hundred years or so between Homer and Ptolemy similar changes were not made and constellations were not modified and redrawn. Ptolemy had benefited from several centuries of maturing scientific thought and the transition of astronomy from a science base on observation to one in which mathematics and geometry were applied...Ptolemy, like Homer viewed constellations in configurations also known in Mesopotamia, and these are divided into four distinct types: human form, part man and part beast, animals, and inanimate objects. In Ptolemy's original list there are in fact nine constellations named after inanimate objects: Crater, Corona Borealis {the Northern Crown}, Corona Australis {the Southern Crown}, Sagitta {the Arrow}, Triangulum {the Triangle}, Argo Navis {the Great Ship}, Ara {the Altar}, Libra {the Scales or Balance} and Lyra {the Lyra}. In the Homeric astronomy Corona Borealis is equivalent to the shield of Odysseus, Corona Australis to Pandarus quiver and Argo Navis to the shield of Great Aias, while Ara is the table upon which Hecamede sets a feast before Patroclus and King Nestor. Crater, Lyra and Libra become the homes of the warriors Odius, Eurypylus, and Polydamas. The brightest stars in the relatively undistinguished constellations of Sagitta and Triangulum are represented by unremarkable warriors who play no active part in the Iliad, such as Gouness of Cyphus and Dodona, and Nireus of Syme." ['Homer's Secret Iliad' / F. and K. Wood].

Recall what these islands are built upon. N/W Europe. Its furthest point. Bog bodies that range from S/E - N/W. Dolmens tha range from S/W - N/W. All along the west coast. Coincidence? Question. What does N/W REPRESENT within the whole ? {'Macro'}.

Referring back to the Sufi equivalent, [micro] example of same..."The nafs can be compared" ..."to a recurrent image of the restive horse [key] or mule that has to be kept hungry, and has to undergo constant mortification and training so that, eventually it serves the purpose of bringing the rider to his goal. Sometimes it is likened to a disobedient camel."[ Chapter three.'Mystical Dimensions of Islam]. Together with..."The Tao of Equus and riding between the worlds." [introduction to the book 'Way of the Horse' by Linda Kohanov]. Also in the same book..."the Celtic horse goddess Epona, an archetype of fertility and transformation". A link to the same within landscape symbolism, [chalk 'figures'] as explained within. Together with the symbolism and its purpose... as represented within the words 'Gog/Magog', [T.Lethbridge. Mentioned elsewhere].

''Crossing the Sirat Bridge depends on everybody's light. Some will cross it in the twinkling of an eye; some, like lightning; some, like a falling star; some, like a running horse. He who has very little light will creep facedown. His hands and feet will slip, and he will cling to it again. At long last, he will break free from it by creeping and creeping.'' [Tabarani / Wiki].

A ''quarter'' of something. Square of Pegasus?

Finally to Mr Muhammad's horse, Buraq, which had the face of a human and the tail of a peacock. 'The tail end of something and the beginning of something else'. As with the Egyptian statues, many examples with either an 'animal' or human head. Symbolic of...still in the 'lower' = 'animal' head. Now in the 'higher', after making that u-turn from a negative into a positive = 'human' head. Muhammad therefore represents, as an example, an individual who overcame those negatives, [lower] in order to reap the benefits of those positives, [higher]. Did you get your head around it? If you did then that understanding of 'lower' in relation to 'higher', especially within 'landscape' symbolism, together with the understanding of 'horse' symbolism, gives clues, amongst others; as to the possible final resting 'location' of certain deceased individuals. But more importantly it explains why.

Hebrew equivalent..."The Hebrew word for repentance, Teshuvah, has three different though related meanings. First, it denotes "return," a going back to 'god'[ or to the Jewish faith. Authors opinion]. Second it can mean a "turning about" or "turning to" adopting another orientation or direction in life. Third, Teshuvah signifies "response." The root meaning, is return to 'god'. [Emphasis this readers. Chapter 8, 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose'. Mentioned elsewhere].

From a different perspective: ''As the Nile flows through Egypt, water flows through our lives, teaching us about both ascension and descension - about ebb and flow - cycles of coming and going - of manifestation and disappearence - of the different states of being and consciousness as well of form.''

REFRESHER...The sciences especially mathematics/physics refer to that process of "getting ones head around it"... 'by way of'... the cognitive faculty. Eastern = 'Chakra' link, [ i.e.,'ajna' ]. Hindu = ‘Atman’ link, i.e.,''That which sees through the eye but whom the eye sees not; that is the Atman." [ Introduction, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita']. Or the Hebrew link to the word ’Shekhinah’, i.e., "the means of transmitting" a potential. Chapter four. ’The Mystical shape of the godhead’. Mentioned elsewhere. Not literal. First impressions. Remember. Symbolic of something else ,i.e., no one believes that he/she has the equivalent of 'gods head' on their shoulders, unless of course their ego-s are their primary driving force,[explained within]. Represented; in part; by some as a ‘Golden’ flower or ‘Rose’, i.e., indicative of a ‘blossoming’ /development of something. Explained elsewhere. Or ’The Secret of the Golden Flower'. By R.Wilhelm. Speculated on; if only in its superficial form; throughout, in the book...'The Master Game'. Mentioned above. 'The Secret History of the World' by J. Black explains that 'development' throughout history. Our History. The human one. i.e.,...........

"Perhaps science only shows us what happens on the surface. Perhaps more important things happen underneath. What the 'secret history' preserves is a memory of subjective experience, of the great experiences that transformed the human psyche during this period. So which is more real? Which tells us more about the reality of being human in this period, the scientific one, or the esoteric one, encoded in the ancient myths." [Chapter seven, page,111, same book].

"This insight comes from the 'eye of the soul'. This 'eye' opens in the 'hearts' of those who are close to 'god'. All the knowledge in the material world will not provide this insight: ones needs a knowledge that comes from the 'hidden' realms, a knowledge that overflows from 'divine consciousness'.

dog"The Path of the Fool is the way of the developing Ego. In esotericism, the Ego is the 'self.' This Self is a droplet of the Universal Mind, or Godhead. The Sanskrit term, mamas, which may be translated as 'the immortal individual', as much as 'higher mind', is the equivalent of the real Ego. It is that droplet of the Godhead which has sought experience through involvement with matter. This minute particle of the Godhead is directed into matter in order to perceive it, or to gain experience in the realm of its 'own' creation." [Extract taken from the chapter entitled 'The way of the Fool' from the book 'The Zelator'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Understanding what all these authors, throughout countless generations infer about the 'divine bit' {droplet?} gives a logic; a credible one; to the above 'statement' [ Words associated with same, highlighted].

''Minute'' in relation to ''spark'' - enlarged elsewhere, i.e., same page.

Something extra: "I usually describe the supraordinate personality as the ''Self'', thus making a sharp distinction between the ego, which, as is well known, extends only as far as the conscious mind {'manifested'?} and the whole of the personality, which includes the unconscious as well as the conscious component. The ego is thus related to the self as part to whole. To that extent the self is supraordinate."  [Pages 161/4 'Science of Mythology' / C. Jung and C. Kerenyi].

REFRESHER: "Perhaps it is the ancient importance of this Dog on the Nile that has given the popular name - the Egyptian X - to the figure formed by the stars Procyon and Betelgeuze, Naos and Phaet - with Sirius at the vertices of the two triangles and the center of the letter.

"The ancient initiatory literature conveys, through philosophical, religious, and 'magical' means, the awakening of innate consciousness. At times, a complex symbolism or language is used, either deliberately--to reserve the information from the common mind--OR of necessity, because an exclusive use of the readers perceptions is required. In modern times, psychological studies of folklore, myths, and cultural legends reveal that what may appear as a simplistic tale when understood in its literal terms, is quite often a profound truth in symbolic terms. The determining factor is always the readers use of his / her consciousness."................."We have seen how the activities of the Solar, Lunar and Stella temple traditions shared the common language of the Sacred science. Its primary function was the awakening of innate consciousness, which in turn promulgates transformation." [Chapter five, 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt].

As part of that ''true poetry''. Others found throughout.

From a different perspective: ''My thesis is that the language of poetic myth anciently current in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe was a' magical' language bound up with popular religious ceremonies in honour of the moon goddess, or muse, some of them dating from the Old Stone Age, and that this remains the language of TRUE poetry....but it is only fair to warn the reader that this remains a very difficult book, as well as a very queer one {'peculiar'?}, to be avoided by anyone with a distracted, tired or rigidly scientific mind...."

SIDE NOTE: {i.e.,as {one} example}: "Mars path through the zodiac is very close to the ecliptic, and Ares 'monstrous spear', like those of Athene and Agamemnon, is a symbolic representation of the path of the sun. To draw attention to the ecliptic, Homer uses two curious literary devices. The first involves incidents when a spear thrown at a warrior misses its target and lies 'quivering' in the ground. When Aeneas, leader of the Dardanians, attacked Meriones, second in command of the Cretans, 'The spear flew past him and the point stuck in the ground, while the butt end went on quivering till Ares robbed it of its force'. And later: 'Hector - aimed a spear at Automedon but he saw it coming and stooped forward to avoid it, so that it flew past him and the point stuck in the ground, while the butt end went on quivering till Ares robbed it of its force'. For Ares twice to stop spears from 'quivering' suggested a point worthy of further investigation. In the first instance, we found that the spear thrown by Aeneas {Virginis} at Meriones {Taurus} would have carried on in a direct line of sight close to a point on the ecliptic where Ares {Mars} could be seen. In the second example, the spear thrown at automedon {Canis Minor} by Hector {Orion} would also have traveled on in a straight line towards the ecliptic and the waiting Ares..." [Same book].

The Willow = Intuition. The Ash = Interconnection. The Oak = Strength. The Holly = Balance. The Hazel = Wisdom. The Apple = Abundance. The Yew = Transformation.

So to seek the above energies that the tree represented to be applied into their own life's, a Druid if he was seeking {say} 'abundance' would eat apples, use a wand {in ritual} made from apple, meditate under an apple tree, etc etc.'' [Page 68 'Idiots Guide to Paganism' / C. McColman].

Think about it, relative to......"When you go back and really study some of the older writings, you find that there was a big change in the Christian religion about 200 years after Christ died. In fact he was not very well known for about 200 years, at which time the Greek Orthodox church, which was the most influential church of the day, made many changes in the Christian religion. They discarded many beliefs, added others, and changed things around to fit their needs. One thing they changed was an important symbol. All the way back to the time of Christ, from everything we have been able to read, Christ was not known as the fish, but as the dolphin. It was changed during the Greek Orthodox editing. Today Jesus is referred to as the fish". [Page 39, 'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life', by Drunvalo Melchizedek. Vol one].

"Quintessential saviors of the shipwrecked and drowning, dolphins are the nimble ''sea people'' {Bacchylides of Ceos} who can be relied upon to buoy us up and carry us back to shore, protect us from marine marauders, keep us company in our lone passages through treacherous channels and, if we're lucky, escort our ships out of trouble before they founder in the first place. The reasons for wild dolphins' long history of beneficence towards us is a mystery, but their role as our rescuers from imminent submergence is attested in outer reality as well as in our dreams. There is something suggestive in the similarity of the Greek words for dolphin {delphis} and for womb or uterus {delphys}. Just as the goddess Aphrodite is born from the surf and is often shown on the back of a dolphin, the streamlined creatures who are so conspicuously attuned with their marine world are emissaries of the womb of ocean, where all life arose, and to which the whales, rare among mammals, returned to live after having spent some evolutionary time as earth dwellers...Dolphins are sometimes 'trickster' type - as they don't mind playing jokes on..."

Side note: Many authors speculate about those 'people of the sea' - who were they? Authors like R. D'amato and/or C. Editors and/or I. Velikovsky. No definitive answers.

The female equivalent = 'mer-maid',i.e.,in that as yet to be 'discovered' state. [ The 'feminine' aspect within this subject always relates to the symbolism of the 'origin' of something ,i.e.,birth etc, [explained elsewhere. Together with the meaning of the word 'mer',i.e.,light..'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life'. That 'origin' that in this physical world is more often than not an unknown quantity. Something 'invisible', that is only 'reflected' [key] upon once in a while. Hence that link to the same, being represented within 'moon' symbolism. This subjects 'unconscious' representation, i.e., bottom/up as opposed to top/down. 'Wet' way as opposed to 'Dry.' Hence the link to the 'Horned' moon, being a reflection, i.e., the start point {birth?} of an understanding of those twin 'horns', [and therefore by the same implication; 'pillar' symbolism, in its ''micro'' sense]...that Alexander identified with. The sun being 'its' conscious aspect. Light in relation to 'dark'. Awareness in relation to 'unaware'. Nothing more. Chapter two, 'The Riddle of the Sphinx'. Mentioned elsewhere.

Understanding  the above gives clues as to what 'is being represented' {implied} - other than the obvious: "This is the 'magic' castle of Melusine. It is I Melusine who have built it, and you will know that i am one who is and was famous for building castles or churches or many other kind of building {temples and/or palaces?}, for those who choose to work with me, and who are in turn , my chosen consorts...Many of the 'magical' locations within the British Isles - as indeed of all lands - are the outer manifestations of ancient inner world temples, and the work of this 'Priesthood' was especially linked with this physical location {i.e., 'Caledonian Forest in the center of the Southern Uplands of Scotland around the peak called Hart Fell} - along with the better known sites as Stonehenge and Tintagel." All the beings, the characters in my castle...are expressions of myself. I can manifest in many ways, {dreams? therefore archetypes} - for am i not one of the race, the daughters of Proteus, {Pharos link} - the great Sea Father, who can change shape and form like the waves of the sea, from tumultuous billows that can wreck and destroy ships and the fortifications of men, or weave rainbows and visions within the spray, of sea horses and sea maidens? The whole castle, the towers and the walls and all that is expressed between, from the upflowing waters of the hidden fount below it all, to the high towers and the contacts that may be discerned from them, and all the characters and their actions within, are an expression of myself in my completeness, or as complete a way as you are able to discover."

Found in the town that Mary Magdalene was born in - along the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Dark Aphrodite?

"The low and featureless coastline of Egypt, with its broad delta and endless desert, offered no prominent landmarks by which a mariner could plot a course. For Homer, the only harbour in the 'long and painful way ' to Egypt, was at Pharos, where Menelaus was said to have been stranded on his way back from Troy...It was ruled by Proteus, the prophetic, polymorphic 'Old Man of the Sea' who resided in caves along the shore, bedded down with his flock of seals. Only by grappling with the seer and holding him tight was Menelaus {enlarged elsewhere} able to learn why he had been marooned by the gods and how, by appeasing them with burnt {'fire'?} offerings, he could return home. There is a variant of Homer's epic, one in which Helen, the wife of Menelaus, is herself stranded in Egypt. In this version {Herodotus 'Histories'} - the Helen within the walls of Troy actually was a 'doppelganger' {''glass'' link}. In reality, the ship in which she had been abducted by Paris, was blown off course and made landfall in Egypt, where protected by king Proteus, the real Helen remained faithful to Menelaus until she could be reunited with her husband. Callimachus, too, makes this association between Greece and Egypt when he refers to Pharos as 'Helen's Island'. Plutarch relates that when Alexander, who wished 'to found a large and populous Greek city which should bear his name', {nickname?} - was about to lay it out, he had a dream, in which Homer himself appeared, quoting his lines about Pharos. Alexander went there at once...Alexandria was meant to have been built on Pharos, but it was not large enough...having marked out a general plan - including orders to 'build a palace notable for its size and massiveness'...Pharos, too, was later connected to the mainland by a long causeway. Thought by Caesar to have been built by 'former kings' - called the Heptastadion - so named for its length was seven Greek stades or about three quarters of a mile...{transcendent third link?}."

Exercise. Something UNmanifest becoming manifested...but only when you ''get your head around it''.

Side note: Greek Hero's represented by Homer as ineffectual - many negatives to them - as with all ''Hero's''. Fire in relation to soul. A balance needed between the two.

Face - Face?

Continued: From a different perspective: ''In the Gnostic texts the Pistis Sophia, contemporary with the canonical books of the New Testament - and considered by some scholars to have equal claim to authenticity - there is a strange story.....Mary sees a boy who looks exactly like her son - she takes him to be her son. But then this boy disconcerts her by asking to see her son, Jesus. Fearing that this must be a demon of sorts, she ties the boy to the bed {'nine lengths'?}, then goes out into the 'fields' looking for Joseph and Jesus.  She finds them erecting a 'vine' pole {Dionysos link?}. The 'three' of them go back to the 'house'. The boys gaze at each other, amazed, and embrace. The secret tradition that traces the subtle, complex process by which human form and human consciousness was put together, has a parallel in its tracing of the extremely complex process by which the incarnation of the 'Word' was brought about.'' [ Page 286 'The Secret History of the World'].

"...Yet we have free will: we can defy the Fate of the ancients: there may be no wisdom in such defiance, but at least there is dignity. In fact, in my horoscope, the Sun was on that star Formalhaut - the one up there - set in the head of the Southern Fish. Its Arabic name reveals its position : It is from Fum al Hut, ''Mouth of the Fish''. It was one of the four Royal Stars of Persia, when the Gilgamesh epic was written. Once, i was quite proud of this link to my Sun, for the fish is a symbol of the hidden wisdom, but then one day i discovered that the Arabic name was Al Difdi al Awwal, which means ''the first frog'', and i was no longer quite so sure about myself, or about my ancestry or destiny." He made a croaking sound and we laughed. "Well, the frog of Western lore changes into a Prince..." ['The Zelator'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Put those keys together to ''manifest'' something - if only in defining subject material, i.e.,''prince'' in relation to 'Son of'.

Between the lower stage of our emotional impulses and the stage where the spiritual being comes into play {higher?}, i must confess that i don't see the steps in between...'That's a bit of an exaggeration, Thomas. I'm showing you the swamp into which you're sinking, and on the other hand the firm earth of your 'suprahuman' goals: do you expect me to take the jump for you as well?'..."

'A leap of the imagination' {leap frog?}.

The real questions however remain the same,i.e.,fact or fiction; a possibility or not?

Analogy; with the same intent..."It is a valuable exercise therefore to re-evaluate all the ancient powers of primeval mythology, particularly those associated with the sea and night. For these are the forces of the primal creation, the Ain Sof or 'Limitless' sea over which the Holy Spirit breathed the first eddies of manifest form, transforming it into Ain Sof Aur - the Limitless 'Light' of FORM expression. Of these are included 'sisterhoods', {usually three fold} such as the Fates, the Harpies, the Furies, the Sirens, as well as the Naiads, the Graiae and the Gorgons. Many of them have semi-serpent forms; sometimes figured as fish tails {Oannes?} like mermaids or mermen, or otherwise like dragons. The Pelasgian creation myth is of particular interest. The Pelasgians were an early Greek people who claimed that they originally sprang from 'dragon's or serpent's teeth' - and of no ordinary serpent or dragon either, but of the primal Ophion. Robert Graves suggests that they may have been the neolithic 'Painted Ware' people of 3500 BC...

Sea Peoples?

And/or: The teeth of the serpent/dragon that Cadmus slew sprouted 'warriors'.['The Chase' / 2022].

eurynomeAccording to mythology the first ever 'divine' being was a 'goddess', named Eurynome, a kind of primal Aphrodite who arose 'naked' out of the sea of nothingness. In her solitude she danced towards the South thus causing a 'North wind' to blow from her motion. She seized the North wind between her hands and it took on the form of a great serpent Ophion, who grew enamoured by her dancing and coupled with her. From the 'union', Eurynome, taking on the form of a 'dove' {i.e., a different aspect of the 'soul' and/or 'feminine' = ?} - laid an egg around which Ophion coiled himself seven times. This hatched out to give birth to all that exists within the universe. Subsequently, according to Robert Graves {in 'Greek Myths'}, Eurynome bruised the head of Ophion with her heel, and evicted him from their abode on Mount Olympus to dwell in the caves below the Earth, because he presumed to claim that it was he {alias Mr kundalini?} who had been 'creator' of ALL. From his scattered teeth sprang the first man, and Eurynome created dual 'Titanic powers', male and female, to rule over the seven planetary forces. Thus according to this legend Eurynome and Ophion were the equivalent of the Old Ones of the Sea who ruled over the Titans before Cronos and Rhea seized 'power' from Ouranos and Gaia. In later myth, Eurynome still appears, though relegated {a stage now developed, i.e.,in hindsight? } - to a consort of Zeus to whom she bore the three Charities, from which our word 'charisma' derives, from a root meaning 'to rejoice'. They are more familiarly known as the three Graces, and are in a sense, the opposite to the Erinyes, or Furies, the three fold agents of retribution. According to Kerenyi, reporting Pausanias Periegeta: 'A goddess named Eurynome had a temple in Arcadia, in a spot difficult to access...a fish tail and in golden chains'..."

''In 1933 Andre Breton, a devotee of such philosophy of the secret societies, said something that illumined art and sculpture ever since: 'Any piece of flotsam or jetsam within our grasp should be considered as a precipitate of our desire." [Page 37 'The Secret History of the orld' / J. Black].

Such programs as 'Ancient Aliens' {Satellite TV}, suggests that such ''fish tailed individuals'' {proves?} that {we?} must have been visited in the past by aliens - intelligent ones - who helped human kind to develop in the external sense of the word, i.e.,physical world. Indeed 'they' did {archetypes?} - but only in the 'spiritual' sense of the word; that INNER one. Understanding that ''universal'' framework especially what they all infer by the ''divine bit'' gives that statement a credibility to it.

''The best day of my life - my rebirth day, so to speak - was when I found I had no head. This is not a literally gambit, a witticism designed to arouse interest at any cost. I mean it in all seriousness. I have no head. It was when I was 33 that I made the discovery, though it certainly came out of the blue, it did so in response to an urgent inquiry - I had for several months been absorbed in the question: What am I?....What actually happened was something absurdly simple and unspectacular: just for the moment I stopped thinking. Reason and imagination and all mental chatter died down. For once words really failed me. I forgot my name, my humanness, my thingness, ALL that could be called me or mine. Past and future dropped away. It was if I been born in that instant, brand new, mindless, innocent of all memories, there existed only the Now, that present moment that was clearly given in it. To look was enough....It took me no time at all to notice that this nothing, this hole where a head should have been was no ordinary vacancy {void?} no mere nothing. On the contrary, it was very much occupied...." [Chapter one entitled 'The True Seeing' from the book 'On Having No Head'].

''First attested in English in 1785, the word camelopardalis comes from Latin,[4] and it is the romanization of the Greek "καμηλοπάρδαλις" meaning "giraffe",[5] from "κάμηλος" (kamēlos), "camel"[6] + "πάρδαλις" (pardalis), "spotted",[7] because it has a long neck like a camel and spots.''

Continued: "The mer for 'chisel' is one of the hieroglyphics in the name Narmer. Narmer is the king identified with Menes, who unified Upper and Lower Egypt [ i.e.,landscape symbolism for ''higher''/ ''lower'']: his name is represented by the two hieroglyphs for the fish [nar] and the chisel [mer]. The esoteric undertones in this compound of 'fish' {catfish?} and 'death' are very profound indeed." [Link to Narmer Palette, explained elsewhere. Extracts taken from 'The Zelator'. Prologue].

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

As seen from a different perspective {the pagan one?}: "So Ariadne is the Weaver Goddess, the Great Goddess of the ancient cultures, and, most important for us as modern people, a powerful mode of consciousness and energy {recall J. Campbell's quote}. Whether we see the universe as a random collection of exploded matter or the product of a patriarch creator, such conceptual models steer our own reality, tending to both mould and limit our understanding and self-expression. If we approach the universe as Ariadne, the Weaver of the Void, we are open in response to her. Her power is that of becoming - whatever we may become....And her power is that of Unbecoming, for whatever is made is simultaneously unmade. She is the gate of the Void {''crack''?} through which infinite potential and dissolution flow. The threads of her weaving....three main strands of energy, time and space - co-existent."

"The relation of the West to Eastern thought is a highly paradoxical and confusing one. On the one side, as Jung points out, the East creeps in among us by the back door of the unconscious and strongly influences us in perverted forms, and on the other we repel it with violent prejudice as concerned with a fine spun metaphysics that is poisonous to the scientific mind. If anyone is in doubt as to how far East influences us in secret ways, let him but briefly investigate the fields covered by what is called 'occult thought'. Millions of people are included in these movements and Eastern ideas dominate all of them. Since there is nowhere any sign of a psychological understanding of the phenomena on which they are based, they undergo a complete twisting....Such is the point of view established in this book. Through the combined efforts of Wilhelm and Jung we have for the first time a way of understanding and appreciating Eastern wisdom which satisfies all sides of our minds {''in profile'' and ''face on''?. It has been taken out of metaphysics and placed in psychological experience....It is precisely the need to understand himself in terms of change and renewal which most grips {''grasp''?} the imagination of modern man. Having seen the world of matter disappear before his scientific eye and reappear....

Profile or face on?

….as a world of energy, he comes to ask himself a bold question: Does he not contain within his psyche a source of unexplored forces, which, if rightly understood, would give him a new vision of himself and help safeguard the future for him? In this book his question is answered from two widely different sources, Chinese yoga and analytical psychology. Stripped of its archaic setting, The Secret of the Golden Flower is the secret of the powers of growth latent in the psyche.'' [Preface].

That was written in the early to middle part of the last century....and as he himself implies in relation to subject material {if only in the Eastern sense of the word} ''to briefly investigate''. To enlarge that opinion try ''yoga'' in all its variations. Together with Joseph Campbell's quote in relation to the word in bold print.

''At the same time , its meaning for us is greatly deepened when we know that, despite the gulf separating us {'valley' and/or 'isthmus'?} - from the East - we follow exactly similar paths when once we give heed to that inner world.'' Same book.

njhyHence: "My deceased friend, Richard Wilhelm, the co-author of this book, sent me the text of the Secret of the Golden Flower at a time that was critical for my own work. I had been occupied with the investigation of the process of the collective unconscious since the year 1913, and had obtained results that seemed to me questionable in more than one respect. They not only lay far beyond everything known to 'academic' psychology, but also overstepped the borders of medical, strictly personal {subjective?} psychology....I knew of no realm of human experience with which I might have backed up my findings with some degree of assurance. The only analogies - and these I must say were far removed in time {pre/post 'oral' tradition?} - I found scattered through the reports of heresiologists. This connection did not in any way ease my task; on the contrary it made more difficult, because the Gnostic systems consist only in small part of immediate psychic experience, the greater part being speculative and systematizing revisions {'prayer'/ 'ritual'?}. Since we possess only very few detailed texts, and since most of what is known comes from the reports of Christian opponents, we have, to say at the least - an inadequate knowledge of the history, as well as of the contents, of this confused and strange literature, so difficult to encompass....The text that Wilhelm sent, helped me out of this embarrassment. It contained exactly those pieces which I had sought for in vain among the Gnostics.... At that time it seemed unimportant to me that the text was not only a Taoist text of Chinese yoga but also an alchemical tract....The alchemical nature of the text is of prime significance....For we have in medieval alchemy the long sought connecting link between Gnosis and the process of the collective unconscious...."

"The Old Testament has different names for different aspects of god, including the Elohim in the act of creation, and Adonai, or the 'Lord'. Yahweh represents a particular aspect of 'god' to do with helping humanity to develop a capacity for reflection, for thinking.....Mount Sinai, where Yahweh made his revelation to Moses, is literally 'the mountain of the moon'. In esoteric terms, Yahweh is seen as reflecting the suns light by means of the moon, a cosmic arrangement that makes human reflection possible".[ Chapter 17, 'The Sacred History']. Think on it, relative to the 'Mona Lisa'. Added further on.

'Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern' by M. Esther Harding.

Whereas the author of 'Cities of Dreams' believes all that 'moon' symbolism is nothing more than Neanderthal mans obsession with a woman's menstrual cycle. Enlarged elsewhere. Question. When all the available information is assessed - what do you think?

"Because ancient cosmological thoughts was concerned with the nature of cosmic principles, ''capitalized'' terms refer to Platonic Ideals or universal archetypes: for example, the word 'sun' refers to the physical sun, while 'Spiritual Sun' refers to the principle of Divine Unity and Being of which the physical sun was seen as a lower manifestation."

The understanding of which [beginning in the 'physical' world] way of...those three 'aspects', could lead to an awareness of the 'body' in relation to 'mind' and 'soul'. An awareness of a potential. A possible destiny. A possible 'journey', by way of, what the author of 'The Riddle of the Sphinx calls, "the transcendent third", i.e.,"This third transcends 'death' to be reborn. A good example of the transcendent third may be seen in the ritual depicted in the center of Knossos fresco calender, by way of the charging bull....."[Chapter two].

''Memory is supposed to be lasting, as permanent and strong as stone. Memories of God’s transformative action become like road markers in our lives.

Towards the 'east'. Similar to the ''axe heads'' -that are mostly  found on the outside of the Sarsen stone. ''Blue'' in relation to 'fire'. Sarsen in relation to 'water' i.e., a glacial  bi-product. Mountain in relation to Valley - ''Westward leading still PROCEEDING - guide us to thy  perfect light.''

As an example: ''Then Joshua called the twelve men whom he had appointed from the children of Israel, one man from every tribe; 5 and Joshua said to them: “Cross over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and each one of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’  Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial {''memory''?} to the children {male and female?} of Israel forever.”

Something ''Set in Stone''?

Try ''deer''  and/or ''wet/dry'' to take it further.

"In the later centuries of the Egyptian worship of Osiris it was said that Apis, the bull, was the spirit of Osiris. This saying gives a direct clue to the evolution of the religious thought. [Chapter 4, from the author M. Esther Harding]. Question. What does 'Osiris' represent?

What about ''Soul''?

A working {synchronistic?} example: ''...Chickie, my childhood dog....She was a half-bearded collie and half Welsh corgi with long black silky hair, white feet, and a white star on her chest, and a magnificent fan for a tail.'' [Page 268 'A Mythic Life'].

"In the mystery initiation of later centuries, as we have seen, the initiate had to impersonate Typhon, the Ass, and thus experience all his own lustfulness until he realized its utter inability to satisfy his human needs. The truly human part of him, the spirit, was, as it were, killed by the domination of the Typhonic spirit, just as Osiris had been 'killed' by Set or Typhon."...."A real bull called the Apis, was reared at Memphis as the image of the soul of Osiris. Its 'food' and care were under special ritual regulations. This bull form of the dying and resurrected god is not exclusive to Osiris, however. Dionysus, was also known in a bull form, called Zagreus, and this bull was torn to pieces by the Titans, just as the body of Osiris was torn to pieces by Typhon. Plutarch, indeed, states quite definitely that Dionysus and Osiris are the same." [Chapter 13, 'Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere]. That final link to the ''transcendent third''. Use the box. Question. Coincidence or a meaning full one?

Sarcophagus {'flesh eater'}. External volume = Two thirds the ''inner'' one.

Knossos Crete. 'Empty space'? Of what?

Different take on the same 'theme'.

..."Thirty spokes surround one nave, the usefulness of the wheel is always in that empty innermost.....You fashion clay to make a bowl, the usefulness of the bowl is always in that empty innermost....You cut out doors and windows to make a house, their usefulness to a house is always in their empty space....Therefore profit comes from external form, but usefulness comes from the empty innermost". [page '11'. 'Tao Te King' by Lao- Tzu].

A working example: "In the oldest inscribed tomb discovered, going back to the time of Zoser, a long corridor is found whose smooth east wall is covered with paintings . The west wall is the exact copy of a stepped facade from the 1st Dynasty, with the difference, that at the back of the eleven niches contained between the twelve pilasters there are eleven wood panels admirably sculpted with the titles and representations of the tombs owner, Hesy. The pilasters represent in paint the wooden piers held together by dowelled crossbeams {'tongue/groove': Stonehenge?} on which brightly coloured tapestries were hung. The geometric motifs of these tapestries evoke a particular technique: 'tissage aux cartons'.[Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries'. Enlarged elsewhere].

Try ''lamp'' / ''niche'' / ''11th hour'' to enlarge on that ''empty innermost''.

A work in progress: "I am aware that a psychological commentary on the child archetype without detailed documentation must remain a mere sketch. But since this is virgin territory for the psychologist, my main endeavour has been to stake out the possible extent of the problems raised by our archetype and to describe , at least cursorily, its different aspects. Clear cut distinctions, and strict formulations are quite impossible in this field, seeing that a kind of fluid interpretation belongs to the very nature of all archetypes. They can only be roughly circumscribed at best. Their living meaning comes out more from their presentation as a whole than from a single formulation." [Page 98 'Science of Mythology: Essays on the Myth of the Divine Child and the Mysteries of Eleusis' / C. Jung and C. Kerenyi].

"Pharaoh, meaning ''Great House,'' only came into use from the New Kingdom onwards [Hatshepsut], that became the form of address for a person who was King, and the 'son of' the god Ra. " The Egyptian sun god Ra, considered the father of all Pharaohs, was said to have created himself from a pyramid shaped mound of earth before 'creating' all other 'gods.'' [Wikipedia/Pharaoh].

Many speculate { 'Valley of the Kings' Channel 5. May 2016} as to why the pyramid shape stopped abruptly in the Middle Dynasty. That 'pyramid' shape now in the 'form' of a mountain - a natural one. Something external seen now as something 'inner'. The feminine principle {i.e.,represented with Hatshepsut} its start point. North in relation to South.

''Innermost space''?

N.B.'Altar' in relation to 'fire' {E/W?}. Enlarged elsewhere.

Therefore ''horizon'' symbol?

In the stone age it was represented by what became known as a ‘Dolmen’. More often than not...three legged. An ‘Altar’ type structure, [ Horizontal top / ’upright’ stones. Explained elsewhere ]. That became symbolic of another of this subjects key/archetypal words...‘Sacrifice’...and therefore a link to the ‘Cross’ symbolism, [ explained elsewhere ]. That same link to the ‘Rose’ Cross. That same link to ‘Christian Rosen--kreutz’.

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

4886880-ruby-sun-cross-symbol-broken-crossed-circle-isolatedEgyptian equivalent Anubis in relation to 'his baldachin' That word that relates to something 'sacred' by way of an "altar, throne or doorway", [dictionary / Wikipedia, etc]. Anubis = 'He who presides over the sacred land' {E/W only?}. [chapter six. 'The Sphinx Mystery']. Think about it, in relation to higher/ understanding of, [benefits of]. Hence the link to the word 'sacred', and therefore by the same implication 'Kingship'. The common factor between all = This subject, 'its' understanding of, in relation to the individual, represented by what is termed by some as the 'transcendent third'. [Chapter three. 'The Riddle of the Sphinx'. C. Herberger. Emphasis, this readers].

Represented in the pagan world with such hill figures as the ‘Cerne giant’. A precursor to the mythology / symbolism of ‘Hercules’, i.e., in that as yet lower state. The ‘unconscious’ aspect of something ‘yet to be made aware of ' way of inner ‘sacrifice’. That inner 'sacrifice' that is always represented with 'animals'. Symbolic of the 'lower' half. Hence its true meaning..." an act of giving up something of value, for something that is of greater value or importance." [Dictionary, and/or especially chapter seven, 'The Brotherhood of the Common life'. Mentioned elsewhere.]

Those twelve 'labours' of the same, for the 'mighty' Hercules to 'overcome', by way of his 'inner' strength. Twelve within the one, link to the symbolism of 'thirteen'. That purpose of, in relation to the individual, [ explained elsewhere ]. Or of the same ‘type’ as is represented by Gog/ Magog, in its even lower state, i.e., yet to be imagined. Representational of. Think about it, in relation to the above. As indicated in such books; of the same; by the author T. Lethbridge.

As a side note, recall those pillars of Hercules in relation to the Nile delta. 'Cold' in relation to 'Warm', as a representation of something. Question. What is that something? Answer found within.

"Thus the conquering of the sphinx / lion of Nemea is an opening phase in an initiation sequence, indicating that the test in hand is the overcoming of the forces of death and rebirth, and the assertion of the individual immortality of the human spirit. Hercules became associated with the hide of the lion, for he flayed the beast after he had killed it, with one of its claws [ the Claw or Paw of the Lion is a symbol familiar to freemasonry], and wore it ever afterward as a sign of his mission." [Taken from 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess: The Quest for the Eternal Feminine Principle.' Mentioned elsewhere]. Put ''lions paw'' in the box to understand something further. If only to understand this subjects 'connections' throughout multiple generations. Try Part 4.

The Mayans and similar cultures took that ‘now conscious’ concept to new levels. They took it literately. They were taught no different. ’Exoteric’ equivalent...but as already stated. Nothing in this subject is to be taken literately. Symbolic only. Only then can an understanding be gained from it. An inner one.[Example of such...‘Inner River’ by K. Markides]. Or 'The Interior Castle' by Teresa of Avila.

That same 'understanding' that is always...regardless of culture in ‘place or time’...represented [in part] in its physical form as an ’Altar’. Freemasons equivalent = ‘Apron’. [symbolic of]. As indicated in such books as ‘Secrets of the lost Symbol’. By Ian Gittins. Or ’The Meaning of Masonry’. Or ’The Masonic Initiation’. Both by W. Wilmshurst. A link to that first ‘sacrificial victim’. Hiram Abiff. Symbolic of that 'potential'. From a ‘lower' to a 'higher' state, [explained elsewhere]. Or the North American Indian equivalent as explained in such books as ‘Black Elk’. By W.Lyon. Or the Greek equivalent.The Phoenix bird. Rising out of its own ashes. [ 'Esoteric Orders and their Work'. By Dion Fortune]. Or a more up to date analogy...’Out with the old. In with the new’, [ ‘Death/end’ of something and the ‘rebirth/beginning’ of something else ]. A link to the true meaning of a ‘reincarnation’, i.e., ’a new you’. Symbolic of; and by way of; what some call...‘An inner landscape’, [The Twelve Wild Swans’. Chapter one. By Starhawk ].

"Symbol of the lower will is the altar.'' Sacrifice something of the 'lower' to understand something of the 'higher'. Indicative of. Anything? The real question however is - Why? Why go to all this effort?

That same 'inner’ process that the Alchemists referred way of...’Thinking/Feeling/Willing’. Sufi equivalent = Nafs/Heart/Spirit, [chapter four. 'Mystical Dimensions of Islam'./A.Schimmel]. Monastic equivalent = Thought/Will/Understanding, [chapter six. 'Brotherhood of the Common Life'. R. Fuller]. Freemason equivalent. Representational of...= Compass/Square /Plumb line. Alchemists represented the same, in their chosen ‘profession’ with ‘Mercury, sulphur and salt.’ In relation to ‘mind, body and soul’. Or the Christian equivalent...‘Father/son/holy ghost’, [ 'Holy' ghost a link to mind/psyche together with the ‘divine bit’. Explained elsewhere ]. Mercury and especially Sulphur more a link to the unconscious/unknown aspects. Sulphur negative [dark] in relation to the life / awareness [light] bit, i.e., Oxygen. Sulphur dominates / eradicates it, i.e., dark over light. Salt a link to the physical world therefore the ‘awareness bit’. It ‘preserves’ that which is ‘known’ or becomes 'known' in [A].

Side note: Mercury symbol = 'H'g

Side note: ''Without the energy from oxygen - life forms would be no bigger than a pin head." ['One Strange Rock' / Nat. Geographic].

"Too much oxygen, we fry, too little we choke. We walk a tightrope...and like a tightrope walker the only thing that saves us is balance. Balance is crucial for the makeup of the atmosphere and life itself. The thing is, we don't fully understand how the earth manages it. The relative amount of oxygen in the atmosphere has been surprisingly constant for millions of years. A constant 20.95% of our atmosphere. Everything somehow keeps things stable... "

Continued: "In the golden age of alchemy, Sulphur represents the animal dimension, Mercury the 'vegetable' dimension, and Salt the material dimension. These 'dimensions' are 'centered' [chakra's link] in different parts of the body, the animal down below the sex organ, the vegetable in the solar plexus, and salt in the head. Will and sexuality are seen as deeply intertwined in esoteric philosophy. This is the Sulphurous part, Mercury, the vegetable part, is the realm of feeling. Salt is the precipitate of thinking. In all alchemical texts Mercury is the mediator between Sulphur and Salt." [Chapter23, 'The Secret History of the World'].

Remember all the above only as a representation of something. A mind set. Something that this subject and these authors for countless generations offer the reader something to ponder on. Once again a mind set. Understanding this subjects core word, i.e.,"divine," gives a certain logic to those 'ideas' and 'opinions'.

''In the great age of Alchemy, Sulphur represents the animal dimension, Mercury the vegetable dimension and salt the material.....Mercury is the mediator between the other two....In the first stage the process of the vegetable dimension must be worked on.....'' [ Page 460 'The Secret History of the World' / J. Black].

Analogy: { i.e., from a different perspective}: ''The highest secrets of alchemy are the water of vitality, the fire of spirit, and the earth of attention. The water of vitality is the  energy of the primal real unity. The fire of spirit is illumination. The earth of attention is the chamber of the center, the celestial 'mind'. The fire of spirit is the function, the earth of attention is the substance {'salt'?}, the water of vitality is the foundation.'' [Page 14 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / T. Cleary].

"Man was looked on as a 'trinity' consisting of body, soul and spirit. The spirit was symbolized as the indwelling spark of divine fire, the incarnations of a man were thought of as being strung like pearls upon the thread of his spirit. The instrument for the manifestation of the UNmanifested spirit was the soul of man. The soul, with its many faculties, was considered to be the principle that makes of man an independent self - consciousness unit." It is mans normal consciousness, and it is the principle that manifests as a trinity of mind, heart and will. As will be shown later, it can only be described by a series of paradoxes, as its real nature is disputed and its very existence often denied by many. The propositions of Proclus with regard to the soul will be discussed later by way of an exercise in meditation." [Chapter 4, 'The Forgotten Mage' by C. Seymour ].

Understanding that universal framework together with what is implied throughout ALL cultures by the 'divine' word gives a logic to the above. A credible one. Recall what ''incarnation'' and ''meditation'' implies, before those first impressions take hold, i.e.,something unknown [unmanifest] becoming a known [manifest] quantity.

Something more grounded; while the intentions are the same; could be..."In psychological and 'magical' initiatory terms, the process of 'Solution' is that related to the Moon [Tarot] card - a bitter time of self discovery, as ones owns beliefs, now exposed by the calcination of self discovery, are found to be nothing more than automatic patterns of a self serving ego. The more one contemplates and analyses ['Mercury'] oneself..." [Taken from the book by M. Katz].

‘Salt’ symbolism also a link to the benefit of being ‘grounded’, i.e., ’ Salt of the earth’. Or ‘Taken with a pinch of salt’. A subtle link to the benefit of objectivity especially in this subject. As indicated in such books as Al-Kemi. By A.Vandenbroeck. That same book that gives clues...only if you know what you are looking for.... Together with the ability of not falling asleep due to the manner in which it is written {if only for this reader} - to clues - on the identity of 'Fulcanelli'. It does however contain what these authors refer to as ‘'nuggets of gold,'' i.e., key words that help in unlocking that overall subject.

Words like seven / green / inscribe / lily / and ’pencil' sketch. [Symbolism link to, amongst others, ‘lead’ symbolism 'in relation to' ... ‘masculine /feminine‘ principles, i.e., Androgynous symbol, of which the 'face' of the Sphinx is a representation of, i.e.,'male/female' and/or positive/negative 'aspects'. Think about it, especially in relation to the ongoing debate about 'its' 'likeness' being.... either 'Khufu' and/or 'Khafre']. Or as in Mr Temples case [author of the 'Sirius Mystery'], his hypothesis being the head and body of a dog, namely Anubis. The 'body' possibly, but the head has to be a representation, in some form or other of that 'end ' result, in relation to an 'individual'. A human one. Explained within.

Question. Could the head and body have been created/developed in different epochs? i.e.,the body [Anubis?] by the end of the fourth dynasty. Think about it in relation to the Egyptian equivalent of higher/lower. As for the head, pre-dynastic? i.e.,whenever the Great pyramid was built. Think about it in relation to the concept of 'god{head}'. That relationship to 'Primordial mound'. Alpha and Omega, and/or vice versa - ALL as a means...?

"The Nile opens like a flower of papyrus whose long stem is rooted among the reeds of the South in the black country, base of the land of the White Crown. Its triangular 'flower' fertilises the land of the North with its living water, the North whose cities mark the phases of the drama of Osiris. We see this 'triangle' as the head, the face rather, that reflects the functions performed in the land of the it not in the face that man's nature finds its living expression? It is through the facial senses that man sees, hears, and 'names' creatures 'lower' than himself...As to the North and South, i have said that the kingdom of the North reflects the nomes and sanctuaries of the South as your face reflects the functions of the body..." ['Her-Bak: Egyptian Initiate'. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''mirror'' and/or ''triangle'' {i.e.,link to the word {principle?} of the word 'pyramid'. All as a means...?

Something to ponder on: "In the final glimpse which the vanishing light permitted me to receive, my own eyes came to rest on the stone eyes of the Sphinx , which, still and quiet, had watched myriads come {'10,000'?}, one by one, to look at it questioningly, and then depart perplexed: which unmoved, had seen the dark men of a now lost world, the Atlanteans, engulfed under millions of tons of water: which half smiling, had witnessed Mena {Menes or Min}, the first of the Pharaohs, turn yonder Nile - from its course and force it to flow through a new bed: which silently regretful, had seen the grave saturnine face of Moses bowed in a last farewell..." ['In Search of Secret Egypt' / P. Brunton]. Try ''Saturn'' to 'see' something else.

Connect those 'parts' {keys} to see the whole.

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

Oculus = ''Bulls eye''.

"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/claw''.

"The 'eye of the eagle' is NO mere figurative expression. It is a technical term for spiritual insight..." Enlarged elsewhere.

Side note: Thousands of eagle claws found ''in a ritual place'' - in the Orkneys. 'North' of these islands. A mind set?

Far better books however on the ’Alchemy’ aspect to Esotericism can be found in such works as the ’Idiot/Dummy’ series of publications. It took Mr Jung at least ten years to understand that very difficult subject by cross referencing similar words/meanings. [‘keys’] The result of which took his own chosen profession forward in '"leaps and bounds". That same information but now plainly explained in a few hundred pages in such books as ‘Alchemy for Idiots’. Just cross referencing those same similar words/meanings. Now out of different books. Within different subjects. As opposed to that one particular subject. Gives the reader the beginnings of that broader understanding of the overall subject, i.e., ’Esotericism’, and more importantly...its relationship to each individual, [in their opinion].

Those ‘different’ books again in the same ‘series’. Freemasonry / Paganism / Ancient Egyptian / and would you believe...’The Kabbalah’. All in the same series. Those together with his very own interpretation of the same. ’Man and his symbols’. By C. Jung. Spot those common keys. Should you want to understand this final remaining subject.

Egg in a basket? or the ''Omphalos stone''? 'Navel' link?

"Hermes Trismegistus who was the 'patron saint' of alchemy: the inventor of all the arts and sciences......The alchemy of the middle ages and the high Hermetic philosophy of antiquity differ insofar as practical alchemy is 'existential' and symbolic, relating to the transformation of 'materia' and soul in the incarnate {''A''?} realm. Classical Hermeticism on the other hand, is more theoretic and 'intellectual,' dealing with celestial geography of the pneumatic cosmos and the 'conversion' of the soul back to first {''B''?} principles. While alchemy is incarnational, Hermeticism is transcendental in character. In other words, alchemy deals with the manifestation of universal principles in the world of 'becoming,' whereas Hermeticism deals with universal principles as principles in themselves. However there is an overlap between Hermeticism and the royal art of alchemy. They both are part of the same Hellenistic tradition that the practice of alchemy is based on the fundamentally 'gnostic' idea [i.e.,what that word eventually came to represent. Explained throughout], that there is a 'divine' principle of spirit hidden or trapped in matter. It is the task of the 'alchemist' to liberate this imprisoned spirit: this alchemical process mirroring the adept's own inner transformation." [Chapter on Parzival, within the book, 'Alexandria.' Vol 1. Mentioned elsewhere, by D. Fideler]. Put ''incarnation'' in the usual box. Think on it, relative to what this subject defines as 'higher/lower.' Understanding that 'universal' framework makes sense of it. A logical one. Something plausible.

N.B. ''A'' and ''B'' in relation to primary/secondary. Enlarged elsewhere.

'Meditations on the Tarot' by Tomberg.

"The possibility of making gold has always been used by sages to hoodwink fools, so that the 'children of wisdom' - who cannot be deceived by selfish satisfactions - may be led toward the true path, which is the search for the real vision of the universe. Without the promise of gold, would the texts of master Hermetists have been disseminated, safeguarded, and respected by the ignorant?" ['Sacred Science' / Schwaller De Lubicz].

nave-199x300‘Mystery of the Cathedrals’ and ’The Dwellings of the Philosophers’ both by ‘Fulcanelli’. linking that same familiar to ‘modern’ stone buildings by way of the ‘Alchemy’ one. "Life takes refuge in a single space". A quote by the same. A link to the ‘divine’ bit. [Explained elsewhere]. That together with those ‘elements’, [ mercury/sulphur/salt ]...were their way of explaining what eventually became known as Esotericism...within their chosen field of interest... ‘Chemistry’. Or what that subject and science developed from. Alchemy. Hermetic equivalent..."Asclepius goes so far as to state that the 'divine part' of man consists of 'mind, intellect, spirit, and reason', and to assert that it is on account of these 'higher elements', that he is found capable of rising to heaven".[Chapter nine. 'The Master Game., mentioned elsewhere. Taken from...'Hermetica: The Ancient Greek and Latin Writings Ascribed to Hermes Trismegistus].

Question. Can you work out, by now, such connections as that ''single space''... within the context [as in the above example]... of a stone building? In other words, where within such a 'building', would that ''single space'' be represented?

Analogy: "By ''Spirit'' we mean the Life-Power. A glance at your dictionary will show you that ''spirit'' is derived from the Latin Spiritus, whose root meaning is breath. Closely akin to the Latin noun are the Greek 'Pneuma', the Hebrew 'Ruach' and the Sanskrit 'Prana'. Each of these nouns signifies both ''breath'' and ''life''.....Philosophers have always attributed a 'mental quality' to this principle." [P. F. Case. Vol 1].

Something hinted at: "We shall only concern ourselves with the question: what has mythology to do with origin or origins?" [Preface to the book 'Science of Mythology: Essays on the Myth of the Divine Child and the Mysteries of Eleusis' / C. Jung and C. Kerenyi].

''The Matrix of energy like no other....Find that doorway and go through it.'' [ 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' /2009].

Now from a different perspective i.e., the 'ritual' one: ''Relax and take a couple of deep, grounding breaths. Look within to find the eternal flame that dwells in the sanctuary of your heart center. As you bring it into focus, accessing whatever inner senses are available - sight, hearing, feeling, knowing or imagination - feed your heart flame with love....notice how it responds. Love is the fuel....'' [Heart Breath Invocation from the book 'Sekhmet: Transformation in the Belly of the Goddess'].

And/or: ''This has always been the secret purpose within the mystery - the more you seek to find divinity outside of yourself, the more you are led to see it within.'' ['Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt' / N. Scully and Linda Star Wolf].

REFRESHER: "The story of the 'divine spark' is our story too, as we have already seen. It is the skilful use of this story - whether one uses the Christian model or another - which brings us out of the 'vale of tears' into the inner kingdom.

Yet another: "They were strange books. They spoke about mercury, salt, dragons, and kings, and he didn't understand any of it. But there was one idea that seemed to repeat itself throughout all the books: all things are the manifestation of one thing only." [Page 76 'The Alchemist' / Panlo Coelho].


And/or: {i.e., a different take on the same theme}: "Let us now return to what is 'hidden', according to the Hindu tradition, in the 'cave of the heart': it is the principle of the being, which, in this state of envelopment and with regard to manifestation, is compared to what is smallest {the word dahara, which denotes the cavity where it resides, also refers to this same notion of smallness}, while in reality it is what is 'greatest'..." ['Page 146, 'Fundamental Symbols: The Universal Language of Sacred Science' / R. Guenon].

Try ''cave'' in relation to unmanifested/manifested - as a means...?


The inner {inside?} quest {question?} of something. Try horizontal/vertical - all as a means...?

As seen from a different perspective: "In a Native American parable, the Creator gathers all the animals and says: 'I want to hide something from humans until they are ready for it.' ''Give it to me. I'll fly it to the Moon,'' says the eagle. 'No, one day soon they will go there and find it.' ''How about the bottom of the ocean?'' asks the salmon. 'No, they will find it there too.' ''I will bury it in the great plains,'' says the buffalo. 'They will soon dig and find it there.'
''Put it inside them,'' says the wise grandmother mole.
'Done,' says the Creator. 'It is the last place they will look.'....''

REFRESHER: ''To hide something successfully - hide it in plain sight''.

And/or: {i.e.,from a different perspective, i.e., the ''ritual'' one}: "You need five lights because traditionary you always have one in the center of the altar to represent the Light of the Universe, or the spark of god at the center of your working, and one candle at each point of the compass." [ 'Magic in the Aquarian Age' / Marian Green].

The real questions, however, remain the same.

N.B. That ''divine bit'' that is only a tiny aspect {part?} of the whole. Hence the word ''spark''. In other words it could be a 10th/100th/1000th OR even a Billion-th multiplied by {in the favourite words of Mr B. Cox} - to the 'X' power {or would that be ''n''?} - of 13 zero's - relative to the 'whole'. Enlarged elsewhere.

Question. String/Brane Theory? i.e., that ''bit'' developing {evolving?} one stage further - using one of the above numbers as its start point - each 'crossover' point {i.e., information of; ''spooky'' at a distance?} = the next stage. A possible hypothesis or not? OR if universes are made of different atoms just swap the word 'brane' . The main point, however is, can you see what is being implied - in relation to that ''bit''?

From a different perspective: ''Against this mythic template, the events and stories of our individual lives can be seen as small but potent fractals of the great fractal, which is the infinite mirroring of the soul of the world. What are fractals? Fractals are repetitions of the same general patterns, even the same details, at both ascending and descending scales. They tell us that the universe and all that it contains is made up of folded realities within self similar worlds. The term fractal itself was invented by Benoit Mandelbrot, an IBN researcher, to describe the new geometry of shapes that form in the wake of dynamic systems.''[ Introduction: 'A Mythic Life' / J. Houston].



Try 'Fold{ed'}.

From a different perspective: ''Here, in this most basic of symbols, the Tao is a template for understanding Spirit in a pagan context. Spirit can be seen as the all-encompassing all- the ultimate reality. YET when we approach this 'ultimate realty', we immediately encounter a basic polarity. Masculine and Feminine. Yang and yin. God and Goddess.'' [Page 75 'Idiots Guide to Paganism' / C. McColman].

137 4Analogy {i.e., brought up-to-date?}: We live in an electric universe. Our bodies are electrical machines.... ''Matter'' then is not a reality, not a thing. It is just a word, a word for a mental abstraction which we make from our sense experiences caused by a mysterious ''something''. To call that 'something' which presents itself to us in a variety of ''electricity'' guises - is merely to choose a convenient label....In other lands and days, the same hidden force was given other names. Now that physicists agree that light is identical with electro-magnetic vibrations, we may discover that the medieval occultists were not so far from the truth after all. They said, 'All things are modes of a mysteries force named L . V. X. {Latin for Light}. Nineteenth-century materialists scoffed at this ''occult superstition''; but when we say that light is electro-magnetism, and accept the scientific dictum that everything is made of electricity, we simply paraphrase the teaching of those who declared: All things are from One and that ONE is L. V. X. ….It is really a revival of ancient learning." [Pages 3/4 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual unfoldment' / P. F. Case].

A mind set? BEFORE the written word came into common use?

"From another point of view, that of the 'Self' which resides at the center of every self, the source of the 'scientia sacra' revealed to man is the center and root of human intelligence itself since ultimately ''knowledge of the Substance is the substance of knowledge,'' OR knowledge of the Origin and the Source is the Origin and Source of knowledge." [Chapter 9, 'The Underlying Religion: An Introduction to the Perennial Philosophy' by M. Lings and C. Minnaar].

A working example {one}: "Tied to neither time nor place, shamanism appears to be fundamental to the human condition. Many consider it to have been the first spiritual discipline of humankind, the original technique of mystical awakening and the precursor of later spiritual practices. As the most ancient navigator of the human psyche, and beyond, the shaman embodies our innate longing for transcendence - to enter the deepest levels of our being and to drink from the wellspring of consciousness from the source of life itself." [Preface to the book 'The Way Beyond the Shaman: Birthing a New Earth Consciousness' / B. Cotterell].

Think about that ''bit'' in relation to the words in italics.

As ''seen'' from two different perspectives.

From a different perspective i.e., as seen {explained?} within {some} archetypes/keys: "In the famous chapters known as the chapters of Rabbi Eliezer, I find a great saying - more extraordinary than I have ever seen in the utterances of any believer in the Law of Moses: ''Whence were the heavens created? He took part in the light of his garment, stretched it like a cloth, and thus the heavens were extending continually, as it is said: He covereth himself with light as with a garment, he stretcheth the heavens like a curtain." {Ps.civ.2}. Whence was the earth created? He took of the snow under the 'Throne of Glory', and threw it according to the words: He saith to the snow, Be thou earth {Job. xxxvii.6}." These are the words given there; and I, in my surprise, ask, what was the belief of this Sage? did he think that nothing can be produced from nothing , and that a substance must have existed of which the things were formed? and did he for this reason ask whence were the heavens and the earth created? What has he gained by the answer?...In short it is a passage that greatly confuses the notions of all intelligent and religious persons. I am unable to explain it sufficiently. I quoted it in order that you may not be misled by it. One important thing Rabbi Eliezer taught us here, is that the substance of the heavens is different from that of the earth; that there are two different substances: the one is described as belonging to 'God', being the light of his garment, on account of its 'superiority'; and the other, the earthly substance, which is distant from His splendour and light, as being - the snow under the throne of His glory. This led me to explain the words: ''And under his feet as the work of the whiteness of the sapphire.'' {Exod.xxiv.10}….For according to Onkelos, the pronoun in the phrase ''His feet'' refers to ''Throne'' - this indicates that the whiteness under the throne signifies the earthly substance." [Page 201 Guide for the Perplexed'. All emphasis, this readers]. Try ''sapphire'' / ''throne'' to 'see' something further.

And/or: "The term evolution is from the Latin 'e' and volvo, which means to roll from, or unroll, and the evolution of matter means precisely what the term implies - unfolding, expanding, opening and evolving. The whole of which can be summed up in the word progression. Matter, per se, is the polar opposite of manifested spirit. It is the reaction of spiritual action. It is energy in a state of rest..." [Page 11 'The Light of Egypt' / Thomas Burgoyne].

Try ''roll'' ''unroll''. And/or ''static/dynamic''. All as a means...?

''Before the written word came into common use.''

''Chicks''? Try ''basket'' to attempt a MIND SET.

Understanding that ''bit'' in relation to - if only in defining a mindset: "When the zodiac is considered as a process of cyclic development, the signs of the zodiac can be shown to have a certain definite meaning...The number twelve is significant in ancient and modern numerology, as being the product of 4 and 3 {enlarged elsewhere}...The division of the signs into 'four elements' {fire, earth, air, water} - or into three types {cardinal, fixed, mutable} - is not a division produced by a sequence in time, but by a kind of segmentation of the whole into the parts - as when a fertilized egg divides into cells, which in turn divide into a group of cells, forming the basic tissues, then organs, of the embryo. The basic division is into four ''elements''. The concept of ''elements'' and in medieval times ''humors'', or in the modern times of ''psychological functions and types'' in Jung's psychology, or that of the 4 ''dimensions'' of space-time, is the result of a very basic intuition of the nature of reality. We define reality as the ''sum result of human experience'', and every experience has form {Plato's forms?]; that is to say, it is at once located in a ''frame of reference'', which is constituted by the three dimensions of space, and by time. Today we speak of ''space-time'' as a four dimensional structure of experience. Every experience implies a more or less immediate sensing of the way in which the cause of the experience fits into our space-time human world. The four dimensions of space-time are therefore the four ''elements'' of experience." [Page 12 'The Zodiac as the Universal Matrix' / Dane Rudhyar].

Isaac Newton. One of Alchemys most well known students. Some say he spent more time on the alchemy subject than the ‘classical’ one. Question. Would someone as intelligent as Newton spend any time on a pseudo subject? The word ‘god’ he purposely used in the same sentence as the word ’gravity’. Leyard also used the same word within his chosen profession of ‘Psychology’...when writing ‘The lady of the Hare'. [Especially noteworthy, in relation to his research on the ‘Hare’ symbol/archetype.] Question. Why? Do they both mean the word ‘god’, i.e., Yahwah / YHVH, [ explained elsewhere ] ...literately or symbolically?


A lead cross found on the beach {wet/dry} on Oak Island. Rick Lagini sees - weeks before the find - an ''exact replica'' of same. Synchronistic? But synchronistic of what? Templars motifs only - or subject material in general?

As a side note, in answer to the above question someone could say, 'He might, especially believing that 'lead' could be changed into gold'. Remember symbolic only. Newton of all people understood that. That 'process' [in the main] is an inner one. Explained throughout.

Try ''lead'' to define {discover / identify?} something further.

"A seed sized portion of the inner stone of spiritual effort will transform enormous amounts of the leaden inertia we all encounter in our own souls." ['The Zelator'].


Working example Shaft 24 / Saqqara. Enlarged elsewhere.

{Synchronistic?} example of something {i.e.,that 'something' that is being implied above}: "It was yellow sulphur and white lead added to natural rubber that led to Goodyears 'rubber' that we know of today - but only when it was {accidently?} left on a hot stove - the process of which - we now call vulcanization." ['Plastic: How it Works' / narrated by Mark Miodownik]. Try ''vulcan''.

Question. Which came first - subject material or method? {i.e.,as one example the word 'vulcan' or more importantly - what it implies relative to the whole}.

Any veil?

And/or {something hinted at}: "Cancer is the mother sign of the zodiac. The mothers breast {'heart? and/or milk?'} is the soul's first home after taking on 'flesh' and rending ''the veil of Isis''.....Holding on to a home {''house''} or dwelling place {'Punt'?} is illustrated by the Crabs grip, and also by the fact that it carries along its home wherever it goes....The angles {'angels'} of the twelve zodiac signs materialize their vitalities in the human microcosm. Through the operation of chemistry, energy creating, the intelligent 'molecules' of Divine substance make the ''Word flesh'' {'logos' link}. The corner stone of the chemistry of the crab is the inorganic salt fluoride of lime....Elastic fiber is formed by the union of the fluoride of lime with albuminoids {egg white?} whether in the rubber tree or the human body. All 'relaxed' conditions of tissue are due to a lack of sufficient amount of elastic fiber to ''rubber'' the tissue and hold it in place....when deficient, there results a 'sagging apart' of the positive and negative poles of the dynamo that runs the machinery of man....Gems belonging to the sign of the breast are black onyx and emerald; astral colours, green and russet-brown. Cancer is represented  by Zebulum, the tenth son of Jacob. Matthew is the Cancer disciple." [Pages 29/30 'The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation' / Inez Perry].

Question. What is the ''spirit's first home?

Question. Can the Tropic of Cancer tell us anything about why Medina was 'chosen' by the Prophet Muhammad?

Question 2. Can it tell us anything about that return journey UPSTREAM in {as one example} Egypt?


The Roman Goddess of Dawn. Whose brother was the sun, and sister the moon. Painted by the same artist, as that of The Shepherds of Arcadia. Boehmes first book after twelve years was called Aurora, supposedly never finished. As are a number of publications. Purposely. Question. Why? All dried up?[ Eclipse Of The Sun: An Investigation Into Sun and Moon Myths by J. McCrickard

"Rosicrucianism was originally an esoteric Christian School which recognized that the same resurrectional life promised by Christ was also promised by Nature [i.e.,the understanding of the 'divine bit' in relation to that universal framework [A/B/C]; passed down for countless generations prior to the time period of the above historical figure]. The parallel between 'Man' and 'Nature' was recognized by the Rosicrucians, which is why, in their alchemical symbolism, Nature and Man was classified by a related triplicity of 'natural substances': Salt, Mercury and Sulpher, corresponding to Thinking, Feeling and Willing. These are the 'three' principles of the alchemists."

"In accordance with the principles of ''veils'' used in alchemy and Rosicrucianism, none of these three ''principles'' is the substance itself. Boehme was the first to take the lid off the secrets enshrined in the esoteric notion of the ''three principles." [Extracts taken from 'The Zelator'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''lid.''

That same profession/subject that Mr C. Jung took forward in leaps by understanding those common keys within those alchemy texts. Question. Why is that subject [ Psychology ]...that only became defined in the last century so prevalent within the esoteric one? The Egyptians defined the same subject thousands of years earlier...within their own symbols - that still retain the same intrinsic meaning. The Egyptian equivalent of ‘mind / body / soul’ = ka / ba / akh in relation to...Isis / Osiris / Horus. All of which had positive/negative ‘attributes’ [Explained within]. The understanding of which is best worked out within the minds eye [‘Eye of Horus’]. ’Egyptian Mysteries’. By L. Lamy. Or 'The Divine Providence of Emauel Swedenborg'. A book that deals with ''psychological and spiritual concepts simultaneously.'' Think about it, relative to the above.

Side note {head scratch?} - ''Simultaneously'' in relation to an 'objective view' . Process of. As is...

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

N.B. In relation to a learning curve ONLY {i.e.,something unknown becoming a known {'manifested'} quantity

images[3]Hence the link to the Egyptian word 'Ba' being identified with Anubis i.e., 'spiritual force' [page 3, 'The Sphinx Mystery'. R. Temple] that links both 'lower' and 'higher' together. That in the main is mostly represented with a 'serpent'. Explained elsewhere. The historian Pliny describes the pit of the Sphinx..."as a burial place for a king", [page 2. Same book]. Understanding 'Anubis' in relation to higher/lower, gives meaning to that sentence. Explained within.

"Boehme, like the ancients, recognized the 'three' have significance only in relation to the 'seven.'' [Jacob Boehme: Life and Doctrines' by F. Hartmann]. Same principles as in Boris Mouravieff and George Gurdjieff 'Law of three and seven'.

As {'seen'} from a different perspective {'Top/down'?}: "The evidence consists of an inscription in Latin Leonine hexameters, set in a marble slab, placed close to the zodiac itself...The curious form of the inscription arises from the fact that it is a seven sentence inscription presented in three lines...It was also a passing reference made by Professor Kendall - an expert in mediaeval Latin hexameters - in reference to a 13th century inscription in St. Trophime at Arles which made me realize the true nature of the inscription at San Mioniato..."

''Anchor point'' found within?

A practical analogy {one example} - of a work in progress using {defining?} 'seven' and 'three'..."It seems that the Benedictine house was a self contained family of men living a simple, ordered life based on the sacred measure of seven and three. The day was divided between liturgical chanting {'opus dei' - seven times to be produced in such a way - 'that our minds may be in harmony with our voices'} - private prayer and study and manual craft work - intended to anchor the mind after prayer {and/or study}. Provision was thus made for the conscious exercise of the mind, the heart and the body.'' [Intro to the book 'The Brotherhood of the Common Life and its Influence' / R. Fuller. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''anchor''. As a means...?

A working example: "What point would there be in living all of the time in an abstract world', asked Abushed. 'Don't be afraid. Everyone finds himself in the world where he belongs. The essential thing is to have a fixed point from which to check its reality now and then..." ['Her-Bak']. Try ''center'' as a means...?

Together with: "The center of the Two Lands is precisely Hermopolis'', said the student of geometry. 'Isn't that the country of the Primordials?'...'Yes the centrepoint', replied the teacher: the 'regenerative' center...." [Same book. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''Armarna'' for a {deeper?} read.

Hi. What do you think of the show so far? Be careful what you think, or it might give me ideas as to where i should put this carrot. Symbolically speaking of course. By the way, Don't believe every thing that you read. This rabbit has one BIG heart.

Question. Why? Why do all cultures regardless of time / space or origins. Regardless of whether they have come into contact with each other or not. Relate to certain symbols with the same importance. The ‘Hare’ being one of them. The ‘Serpent’ another [explained elsewhere]. Such ‘Archetypes’ have the same meaning. As improbable as that sounds...but from which Mr C. Jung built his ‘Archetype’ hypothesis from, [explained elsewhere]. The ‘Hare’ being one of those archetypes is given many ‘attributes’. All closely associated. A few of the important ones. Moon related therefore a link, [both directly/ indirectly] to the ‘feminine/birth aspect’. As well as its representation of the ‘dark/shadow’ side of esoteric lore.

It is also a link to ‘sacrifice’ symbolism and ‘heart’ symbolism, [ it has a bigger heart than its relation the rabbit. Hares are also known to "sacrifice" themselves]. That link to an ‘interest’ in a subject which over time could lead to a ‘love’ of way of an understanding, [benefits of. Explained elsewhere.] Link to ‘Song of Solomon’. Of which can be found many ‘keys’, i.e., Lily / apple / shadow / 117 verses.etc. [Number symbolism.Explained elsewhere]. Hare symbolism verified by such authors as Mr Leyard. [Mentioned above]. Or Mr C.Wilson within his ‘Mysteries’ book. Or Robert Graves/The White Goddess. Or/and especially the ‘Trickster Character of the North American Indians'. By P. Radin.


'leap of faith'?

Of which Mr C.Jung verifies within the same book. Also in the same ‘forward’ a link to the word ‘Yahwah’ that most significant word within the Hebrew scriptures whether seen as ‘esoteric’ or ‘exoteric’. Especially significant in relation to the word ‘leap’ relation to a ‘March hare’, {'boxing' hare? i.e.,link to wrestle/struggle} - relative to ‘Spring’, i.e., conception/birth of something. In relation to the ‘development of’. That link to a ‘Leap of faith’, i.e., Exoteric. [Example of...’Essential Readings’. By Anthony Duncan]. Or more to the point an ’intuitive one’. In relation to this subject, relative to a understanding. Christian equivalent = 'Epiphany'. Commonly known as a ’eureka moment.' Examples of same, found within. [ Try 'eureka' in search box]. T. S. Eliot refers to same as ''a timeless moment." The aftermath of which finally becomes intuition.

From a different perspective: ''The energies of fire push us towards the death of the old and the struggle for birth, for when you go out into the desert you realize how tenuous your hold is on life, and how easily and quickly you might perish. Yet it is our willingness to die to the old and leap into the fires of transformation....Trial by fire speaks of the tempering quality of fire. It burns away the dross, which includes everything except the essence of what needs to be carried forth.....When you take action and make the leap you are moving into the element of fire {Aries?}. When you are 'flying' through the air {Gemini?}, moving to a new place, a bigger understanding, you are with the element air.....Air is the last alchemical ingredient, for it is when air is added that the 'baby' {twins?} is fully incarnated....Water, earth, fire and air are individual elements - breath is related to spirit....the wooden spoon that stirs all the ingredients together is the breath, in the hand of the one source, stirring, blending, and unifying all the elements.''

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

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


Fox or Wolf. A 'leaping one'? If 'wolf' then a link to 'centaur'. ''Aratos wrote of The Wolf constellation as parts of it in which ''the Centaurs right hand holds'' as an offering to the gods on the Altar {constellation?}, and so virtually a part of the Centaur; but Eratosthenes describe it as a Wine-skin from which the Centaur was about to pour a libation; while others imagined both the 'Beast' and the wine-skin in the Centaurs grasp."

"In southern latitudes Scorpio is magnificently seen in its entirety, - nearly 45 degrees.

A working {synchronistic?} example, i.e., from an unknown {UNmanifested} point of view {i.e.,a work in progress}: "Certainly the indigenous inhabitants of the Gobekli-Tepe area were hunter gatherers - and completely unknown hunter gatherers at that! But it has been my thesis throughout this book that their sudden venture into spectacular monumental architecture, closely followed by their equally spectacular ''invention'' of agriculture, is very strange. Indeed it amounts to an almost inexplicable 'great leap forward' that cries out for a coherent explanation which archaeology has yet to provide..." ['Magicians of the Gods']. Enlarged elsewhere.

Goggle eyed?

Side note: David Attenborough finds a wooden figure that was 'created' by the original inhabitants of Easter Island {Polynesians}. A stylized  ''goggle eyed'' male figure with female breasts  {androgynous?}. 'Crescent' {'bowl'?} shaped man {'spirit'} in the moon {'soul'}. It could be 'cradled' like a 'child' or held {by the feet} like a 'handle' of a mirror - to reflect upon {'semi-circle'?}. A ritual site found 'S/W' of the Island. Stories abound of a sacred year given to 'chiefs' who received the first 'egg' of the year from the adjacent island. The 'hooked' bill of the Frigate bird depicted together with a 'goggle eyed' creator spirit. Attenborough concludes a ritual solely beginning at the discovery of Easter Island. Nothing more than to celebrate the nesting and finding of food substance late in every year {September}. No mention of the ancient Polynesian creator god Maui. A trickster type character who 'stole' fire from heaven. Who among many of his attributes - used a magical 'hook' to lift up 'islands' from the bottom of the sea. He also according to legend had an intuitive insight into gods purpose for all animals especially 'birds'...'' ['Lost Gods of Easter Island'].

It is generally {especially in literature} taken to mean ''word'' {verbum}, but it would be more exact to relate it to the word ''weaving'' in its traditional symbolic sense. It stands for the intersection of complementary notions, as in the craft of weaving where intersection gives form to two threads which by themselves cannot be situated.

"This book throws light on some long overlooked aspects of cosmological symbolism that were important both to ancient Greek philosophers and early Christian writers. The study focuses on the pre-Christian idea of the Logos, the pattern of Harmony which was seen as underlying the order of the universe, and which some of the earliest Christians identified with the figure of Jesus, the avatar of the Christian faith. As such, this is not a book about the historical Jesus, but shows how, in antiquity, Jesus and other 'divine' figures were represented as symbolic personifications of cosmic principles."
