Open To Interpretation

Notes: game on...on the radio...Angels and Astros...the Archons, I learn, are a popular topic on the late nite Mysterion radio talk shows...ufos and such...trying to figure them out unfocused my focus!...charlatans are all of the same fabric...they present their view to the exclusion of any other views...don't know but that's a common thing in politics too...seldom do we hear the oppositions views from one side or another stated objectively...there's a clip on youtube of a fellow promoting his invention of a paper microscope...thought is it can be used for doctoring in poor countries, out in the country sides...the audience is under his spell, approving...comments too...though comments are always suspect of being by sock puppet trolls...watching the clip I thought it was like watching those magic kitchen utensil salesman at the county fair...and to prove the strength of the paper microscopes utility, he drops it and steps on it...proof sure of it's value insomuch as a real microscope would break...way it works, a glass slide is positioned on a piece of thick paper cardboard over a small lens...the specimen, malaria the example, is on the slide...then, wala, a beam of light shines through the tiny lens, through the slide, and projects big on a screen...I dunno...it's still a 'microscope'...it needs the light, and the screen...and has a breakable glass slide...granted there could be a flashlight and a white wall, but still...anyway, while he goes on and on, he's holding a cell phone...or maybe it was the control for the slide show screen, and I mistook it for the marvel he was going to reveal...after watching the clip, and scratching my head, I google searched: cell phone microscope...wala...Astros made out...to bottom of 1st...Trout up...two out?...Trout's been batting third...usually bats second...base hit!...first hit in this series with Astros...third game today...

It's a cliché to say that your smartphone is a pocket-sized computer, but sometimes we forget exactly how powerful these devices are. BLIPS — a set of thin, stick-on lenses that turn your cell phone into a portable, digital microscope — are a brilliant reminder.
... ... ...
This isn't the first cheap lens we've seen that can convert your smartphone to a microscope, but it is the most accessible. Foldscopes offers a similar product, for example, and its lenses cost less than $1 to build, but they're not available to buy generally, and are aimed mainly at scientific users in the developing world. If you want to remember how amazing your cell phone is, BLIPS might be worth a try.

Atoms of Hexabenzocoronene

The researchers captured these images using an atomic force microscope and a special technique that allowed them to map the subtle differences in charge in different areas of the molecule. They were also able to determine the strength of the bonds between the individual atoms in the molecule.

The team developed a pattern of pillars that is extremely water-repellent, causing the moisture to evaporate quickly and leave behind strands of DNA stretched out and ready to view. The team also drilled tiny holes in the base of the nanopillar bed, through which they shone beams of electrons to make their high-resolution images. The results reveal the corkscrew thread of the DNA double helix, clearly visible. With this technique, researchers should be able to see how single molecules of DNA interact with other biomolecules.

quote

You have certainly noticed that the shell of an immature mollusk often resembles fully grown shells of the same species but in miniature. Each one is an exact model, to scale, of the other. Seashells, with their auto-similar shape, may be represented by a three-dimensional surface, generated by a simple equation, with some free parameters. Amazingly, in spite of the simplicity of that equation, it is possible to generate a great variety of seashell types.



The mollusk does not enlarge its shell in a uniform way: it only adds material in one of the edges of the shell (the open or "growth" ending) and makes it in such a way that the new shell is always an exact model, to scale, of the smaller shell.
These constraints have a mathematical consequence: almost every shell follows a growth rule based on an equiangular spiral:

Perforated gnomons projecting a pinhole image of the sun were described in the Chinese Zhoubi Suanjing writings (1046 BCE—256 BC with material added until circa 220 AD).[8] The location of the bright circle can be measured to tell the time of day and year.

In geometry, a gnomon is a plane figure formed by removing a similar parallelogram from a corner of a larger parallelogram; or, more generally, a figure that, added to a given figure, makes a larger figure of the same shape.

Heron of Alexandria, a 1st century AD Greek mathematician, defined a gnomon as “any figure which, when added to an original figure, leaves the resultant figure similar to the original.” This is the symbol of growth by accretion, or evolution from a seed point.

Since meaning is essentially mythological, let us look at the evidence through the lens of myth. The Throne of Osiris, the place where sentience rules, is the physical manifestation of Mind in the Universe. This tells us that the key to inter-action with Mind in the Universe is the One and Eight geometry of physical evolution’s gnomic growth. Long ago, perhaps as much as 20,000 years ago, human’s learned this and symbolized it as the classical labyrinth, which became a developmental tool for human evolution. The peak came with the Great Leap Forward of the Temple of Man at Luxor. After that, the understanding shattered and slowly faded away.

René Adolphe Schwaller de Lubicz (December 7, 1887 – 1961), born René Adolphe Schwaller in Alsace-Lorraine, was a French alchemist, student of sacred geometry and Egyptologist known for his twelve-year study of the art and architecture of the Temple of Luxor in Egypt and his subsequent book The Temple In Man.[

New Age stuff makes my eyes glaze over...but back in the day, de Lubiez was a curio!...

quote

He argued that Egyptian temples were used for mystical initiations, and that their design incorporated symbolism expressing a belief system that combined religion, philosophy, art, and science.[16] He believed, for instance, that the Egyptians were aware of astronomical concepts like axial precession, which was reflected in their religious beliefs.

Donald in Mathmagic Land is a 27-minute Donald Duck educational featurette released on June 26, 1959.[1] The film was nominated for an Academy Award, and became a widely-viewed educational film in American schools of the 1960s.
... ... ...
After shaking hands with Pythagoras, who then vanishes, Donald finds on his hand a pentagram, the symbol of the secret Pythagorean society. The Spirit then shows Donald how the mysterious golden section appears in the pentagram. Next, the pentagram is shown to contain the pattern for constructing golden rectangles many times over. According to the Spirit, the golden rectangle has influenced both ancient and modern cultures in many ways.

as kids, we would draw pentagrams on our palms...it was the sign of a Werewolf!...

quote

In this movie, Lon Chaney Jr. goes home to Talbot County before he turns into a werewolf. He walks into a shop and buys a neat looking cane that has a silver head of a werewolf at the top of the cane. After buying the cane, Lon Chaney Jr. turns into a werewolf and he can then see the pentagram symbol on future victim’s skin. This take on werewolf theory however was mostly the product of the movie writer’s imagination as it can be seen nowhere else in werewolf folklore (well, none that I can find anyway.)

A fractal is a natural phenomenon or a mathematical set that exhibits a repeating pattern that displays at every scale. If the replication is exactly the same at every scale, it is called a self-similar pattern.

Thoth is the Lord of the Tree of Life, Nin-Gish-Zidda for the Sumerian, Hermes for the Greeks, Kukulcan and Quetzalcoatl for the Aztecs and Mayans respectively – the Plumed or Winged Serpent. Symbolized both with the ibis-headed scribe, and the dog-headed baboon by the Egyptians as Thoth. He is the Roman god Mercury and Hermes Trismegistos the author of the Tabula Smaragdina – the all important document for the Alchemists of the European mystical tradition.

It has a staircase on each of the four sides. Four stone square pillars support the pagoda's first roof, where is built a square stone railing. Inside the railing is the body of the pagoda, and above it, standing on the second octagonal-shaped roof surrounded by an octagonal stone railing, are eight bamboo-shaped stone pillars support the octagonal-shaped lotus stone carved with sixteen petals. Above it eight stone pillars support the third octagonal-shaped roof. Of the four stone lions guarding the top of the staircases only one remain.

The pyramid consists of a series of square terraces with stairways up each of the four sides to the temple on top. Sculptures of plumed serpents run down the sides of the northern balustrade.

The location of the pyramid is aligned at the intersection between four cenotes: the Sacred Cenote, Xtoloc, Kanjuyum, and Holtún. This alignment supports the position of El Castillo as an axis mundi.[

oh, reminded here of something I wanted to post about...Trout a K...to top of 2nd...

quote

The Mu‘allaqāt (Arabic: المعلقات, [al-muʕallaqaːt]) is a group of seven long Arabic poems that are considered the best work of the pre-Islamic era.[1] The name means The Suspended Odes or The Hanging Poems, the traditional explanation being that these poems were hung on or in the Ka'ba at Mecca.[2] The name Mu‘allaqāt has also been explained figuratively, as if the poems "hang" in the reader's mind.
... ... ...
Ibn Abd Rabbih in the 'Iqd al-Farid (The Precious Necklace) states "The Arabs had such an interest in poetry, and valued it so highly, that they took seven long pieces selected from the ancient poetry, wrote them in gold on pieces of Coptic linen folded up, and hung them up (allaqat) on the curtains which covered the Ka'ba.

Translating Bedouin women’s poetry is not an easy task; the greatest difficulty is translating the untranslatable. The vocabulary is exceedingly rich and often has no equivalent in English. Women Bedouin poets have more than a hundred words to describe different types of camels and for pre-Islamic poets, the number of words exceeded one thousand.

Tarafa was one of the seven poets said to have their poems in the Kaaba...runner on for Astros...

quote

The Kaaba was thought to be at the center of the world, with the Gate of Heaven directly above it. The Kaaba marked the location where the sacred world intersected with the profane; the embedded Black Stone was a further symbol of this as a meteorite that had fallen from the sky and linked heaven and earth.[
... ... ...
 Prior to the spread of Islam throughout the Arabian Peninsula, there were paintings of idols decorating the walls. A picture of the Prophet 'Isa and his mother, Maryam was situated inside the Kaaba and later found by the Prophet Muhammad after his conquest of Mecca. The iconography portrayed a seated Maryam with her child on her lap.

Until the publication of this learned paper, based on original Buddhist texts and their commentaries, no one seems to have ever ventured to give thought to such a possibility, that Buddhism had been established in a West-Asian region which was the meeting point of East West cultures in the old world, the entrepot as it were, as far back as the 6th century B.C. while Gautama Buddha was still living.

Hi all,

I was looking at some pictures of Buddha and came along this, the hand gestures of Buddha and of a Maya maize god look almost the same. The hand is up and the other one is down:
... ... ...
Now I am not the only one who across this small detail. I also found this article from 'Feats and Wisdom of the Ancients' from Timelife Books:

±:Although found half a world apart a six century Buddha and an eight century Mayan maize god exhibit mirror-image gestures. Used ritually, such hand gestures are called mudras in the Orient. Throughout the Buddhist and Hindu worlds, there are dozens of gestures and body positions with symbolic meanings, and the ancient mudras today.
Friends often greet each other with a praying hands gesture, a maudra of reverence and respect. The mudras of religious icons signal their benefit to worshipers. This Buddha's out stretched left hand says he is bestowing a gift; his upraised right hand signifies the gift is courage. Although the hand positions of the Mayan statue are reversed the similarity is thought by some scholars to be too great to be coincidence.
Indeed, the hand postures are among several similarities between Asian and New World icons that some researchers see as evidence that pre-Columbian cultures of the Americas may have been influenced by Asian visitors. Parallels have been found in costumes, headdresses, ornaments, physiques, and body positions of religious statues on both sides of the Pacific.:±

I went back and forth, looking, considering...came to conclusion, that the pectoral of the smiling figure is very close to the staff god's platform, and the step fret on the smiling figure's headdress not so close to Lord Sipan's headdress...but, but then I looked at more smiling face figurines...there's a lot of them!...from Vera Cruz...

quote



Pre-Columbian, Vera Cruz, Mexico, ca. 600 to 800 CE. A lovely head from a Sonriente (smiling figure) in buff clay of a large triangular form with a grand headdress adorned with a stylized geometric step-pattern motif and round ear ornaments. The happy visage boasts wonderful features including almond-shaped eyes, arched brows, smooth high cheekbones, and most characteristically, a toothy smile. Very Rare Terracotta Bust. Custom, museum-quality stand. Size: piece itself measures 5.25″ W x 5.5″ H (13.3 cm x 14 cm); 7.125″ H (18.1 cm) on stand.  Provenance: Ex- Private Story collection, Denver, CO

Smiling figures (called sonrientes in Spanish) are one of the most intriguing examples of Mesoamerican ceramic artistry, part of a long-standing tradition of hollow ceramic figures produced in south-central Veracruz throughout the Precolumbian period. The animated expression that is responsible for their name is surprising in Mesoamerican art, where emotion of any kind is rarely depicted.

The ancient astronomy taught that above the seven planetary spheres was an eighth, the sphere of the fixed stars.[1] In the eighth sphere, these Gnostics taught, dwelt the mother to whom all these archons owed their origin, Sophia (Wisdom) or Barbelo. In the language of these sects the word Hebdomad not only denotes the seven archons, but is also a name of place, denoting the heavenly regions over which the seven archons presided; while Ogdoad denotes the supercelestial regions which lay above their control.

quote

The Gnostic ideas and systems flourished in the Mediterranean world in the second century AD, in conjunction with and influenced by the early Christian movements and Middle Platonism. After the second century, a decline set in, but Gnosticism persisted throughout the centuries as an undercurrent of western culture, remanifesting with the Renaissance as Western esotericism, taking prominence with modern spirituality. In the Persian Empire, Gnosticism spread as far as China with Manicheism, while Mandaeism is still alive in Iraq.

quote

In 1966, at the Congress of Median, Buddhologist Edward Conze noted phenomenological commonalities between Mahayana Buddhism and Gnosticism,[32] in his paper Buddhism and Gnosis, following an early suggestion put forward by Isaac Jacob Schmidt.[33][note 16] The influence of Buddhism in any sense on either the gnostikos Valentinus (c. 170) or the Nag Hammadi texts (3rd century) is not supported by modern scholarship, although Elaine Pagels (1979) called it a "possibility".

The Nag Hammadi material contains reports of visionary experiences of the initiates, including first-hand encounters with inorganic beings called Archons. Gnostic teaching explains that these entities arose in the early stage of formation of the solar system, before the Earth was formed. Archons inhabit the solar system, the extraterrestrial realm as such, but they can intrude on Earth.
... ... ...
Physical descriptions of Archons occur in several Gnostic codices. Two types are clearly identified: a neonate or embryonic type, and a draconic or reptilian type. Obviously, these descriptions fit the Greys and Reptilians of contemporary reports to a T. Or I should say, to an ET.

At one point in his life, Augustine was a Gnostic. He was a member of the Manichaean religion, a syncretic, almost parasitical movement that at one point spread from Asia to the Mediterranean during the early middle ages.
He would later convert to Christianity, seemingly not finding the mechanism of discipline he craved. And he certainly wrote polemics against the Manichaeans, although his concept of predestination and platonic worldview might have been a Gnostic spill over. In fact, Augustine died denying to both critics and allies that he was still a Gnostic.

Open To Interpretation

Notes: from the sprawl:..the topapus' 'sprawl':...one's eye can't settle and focus on one emblem, and make sense of it...like M. C. Escher's painting...one sees a fish morph into a bird and bird back into a fish and such...I thought maybe the school of art called 'cubism' is like this...maybe it is...certainly Picasso's paintings from when he followed this school...maybe created it...are like this, and his paintings later too...well, there's the big sprawl of his painting called Guernica...

PicassoGuernica.jpg
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guernica_(Picasso)

he used house paint, for goodness sake...an aside!...but that's a modern 'tocapu'...and very different from Inca/Ancient art, in that it is the symbology of one individual, rather than a culture's...ancient artists would design in keeping with their culture's symbols...nowadays, individual artists make up their own, and viewers are invited to figure them out...there has been much figuring about Picasso's painting!...what can I compare this to!?...well, it's like making up your own game, playing it, and asking others to play along...in contrast to taking up baseball, that artistry, with the hope of someday taking 'the stage' in the major leagues...baseball is a tradition that makes baseball players...the ancients had symbolic traditions that made their artists...somewhere back in time is a before and after, before when artists were being made by tradition, after when artists abandoned traditions, making new art...oddly, and ironically, the new art in turn becomes traditional...there are schools now of artists that paint in the cubist style and such...sorting all that out is for the curators of art!...anyway, from my own 'sprawl', I thought to track down the number '23'...my pre- supposition was that it is the tilt angle of the Earth's axis, and in their art, the ancients symbolically reference it...or so some of the Mysterions' on and ons would have it!...the tilt is very important...it is one of those essential things that makes for life on Earth...there are a whole bunch of these...the Earth's Moon, the distance from the Sun, and such...without the Moon, there wouldn't be tides, and the Ocean's would stagnate...the Earth's distance from the Sun is in what is called the 'Goldilocks Zone'...where water can exist in its three phases...and the Pole's tilt makes the Seasons...there are so many of these necessary things for life on Earth...well, it's been noted...lemessee if I can find that...well, there's too much to sort through, but here's one take to make a grab at and follow on...

that we have, in a sense, won a "cosmic jackpot," and that conditions are "just right" for life, as in The Story of the Three Bears. As Davies writes elsewhere, "There is now broad agreement among physicists and cosmologists that the universe is in several respects 'fine-tuned' for life."[2]
After explaining this enigma, Davies discusses possible solutions, such as the anthropic principle, the idea of a multiverse which contains many different universes (including our "just right" one), and the idea of intelligent design.

hmmph...diverted to reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears...

Author Christopher Booker characterises this as the "dialectical three", where "the first is wrong in one way, the second in another or opposite way, and only the third, in the middle, is just right". Booker continues: "This idea that the way forward lies in finding an exact middle path between opposites is of extraordinary importance in storytelling".[24] This concept has spread across many other disciplines, particularly developmental psychology, biology, economics and engineering where it is called the "Goldilocks principle". In planetary astronomy, a planet orbiting its sun at just the right distance for liquid water to exist on its surface, neither too hot nor too cold, is referred to as being in the 'Goldilocks Zone'.

What is interesting, is that the tilt angle of the Djed is very close to 23º – close enough to the earth's axis obliquity angle of of 23.5º – and so appears to be a very early reference to the tilt angle of the Earth and the obliquity of its celestial pole or axis.

Hieroglyphics play an important role in understanding ancient Egyptian culture. One of the most commonly found and mysterious hieroglyphic symbols is known as the djed symbol. With the appearance of a pillar and three or more cross bars, there have been several theories as to the meaning of this enigmatic symbol, and what it represented to the ancient Egyptians who used it so frequently.

quote

The 23 enigma can be viewed as an example of apophenia, selection bias, and confirmation bias.[citation needed] In interviews, Wilson acknowledged the self-fulfilling nature of the 23 enigma, implying that the real value of the Law of Fives and the 23 enigma is in their demonstration of the mind's ability to perceive "truth" in nearly anything.

and reading that I happened on apophenia, and thought I need to work up a post around that...which is whereabout I am!...and looking up something else, synchronicity, as in the experience of coincidence, I found synchronicity and apophenia together!...Angels made out...top of 6th...

quote

Likewise, in psychology and sociology, the term apophenia is used for the mistaken detection of a pattern or meaning in random or meaningless data.[31] Skeptics, such as Robert Todd Carroll of the Skeptic's Dictionary, argue that the perception of synchronicity is better explained as apophenia.
... ... ...
A famous example of this is the fact that human face recognition is so robust, and based on such a basic archetype (essentially two dots and a line contained in a circle), that human beings are very prone to identify faces in random data all through their environment, like the "man in the moon", or faces in wood grain, an example of the visual form of apophenia known as pareidolia.

For the record, this montage was not created or posted by me, but it is interesting and I would like to know the source of the Meso-American images, so that I can research it further. What do the experts say about them? I have studied the Raising of the Djed Pillar Egyptian Iconography in depth and have a lot to say about it, but I would need to know a lot more about the compared Meso-American Icons before making a judgement about them.

One of these Trees / Pillars is the Asherah Shekinah / Shakti of the Jewish Duo-Deity ELI-YAHU. With ELI and YAHU this threesome of Trees or Pillars is HARI (Krishna), VASUDEVA (Balabhadra) and SUBHADRA. The Greeks called this Triad Helios Apollo, Dionysos and Artemis. Artemis was the older female twin of Apollo (Helios Kouros). Artemis was definitely Subhadra-Kali or Durga when Durga is considered the Sister and not the Consort of Vishnu. I have seen and read about numerous iconographic and doctrinal connections between Subhadra and Artemis as the Shaktis of Helios-Apollo and Krishna. The idea that the Djed Pillar(s) are Phallic Symbols is just ridiculous, considering that one of the Djed Triad Trees or Pillars represents Asherah the Shakti of ELI-YAHU!

The mural images are from Cacaxtla, Tlaxcala in Eastern central Mexico. They are from the Classical period in Mesoamerica.

Previously we have clarified that the concept of “Tree of Life” (as well as any other type of axis mundi) is a metaphoric image that refers to the placenta. Starting from this premise is easy to understand how the “beverage of immortality” that, in various mythologies, is obtained from the aforementioned tree is nothing but the liquid nourishment (a real “liquid of life”) that from the placenta reaches the fetus by means of the umbilical cord: let’s see some examples.

Tree of Life[edit]

An important element in every stupa is the "Tree of Life". This is a wooden pole covered with gems and thousands of mantras; it is placed in the central channel of the stupa.[43] It is positioned during a ceremony or initiation, where the participants hold colorful ribbons connected to the Tree of Life. Together, the participants make their most positive and powerful wishes, which are stored in the Tree of Life. In this way the stupa is charged, and starts to function.
