double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

The zodiac of Chaldean astrology is the great city Babylon. If we take it for its word as that of a woman with desire for substance, we will miss the message and the eighth king, who is of the seven, will bind our heart and soul and body in a single name which carries an image of My Father's Business, but no true Father Image, just the image of self inspired words, for no experience of the extant body has revealed the secrets pondered with wanton desire. This seed will get lost in the cosmic womb.

Matt 26:31-32
Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

Luke 12:30-34


For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Rev 17:8-11


The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

Rev 17:12-18


And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Rev 2:17
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

From Pisces to Sagittarius is the Flight of Isis, who had been put under the yoke of Aries at the Well of the Seven Sisters. Aries is the beast that speaks as a dragon. The rationalizations of the Aryans is legendary. The children of Aries will even consume the day in the sun of the Children of Pisces. But, when the Sun Begins to Rise, the Children of Pisces will witness the return of Osiris, and a new name shall be given to those who scatter the shepherd's flock where the Golden Fleece covers the death bed of Socrates. By virtue of the wisdom of self sacrifice, the messianic illogical body will reveal the intuitively oriented being that will become a Body of Light. The Eye of Hours will rest upon the Throne of Isis, and Osiris will be made whole again. In short, the wisdom of the man and the beast means, "Pay attention to the senses, for rational knowledge is just a self created dream." Socrates said to ignore the senses. Socrates was "no man," just a stiff necked man who had mastery of the air of Shu, but "no body" of intelligent sensitivity. Plato, Aristotle, and Claudius Ptolemy, were the sons of Socrates, who hid the truth behind a love of philosophy. It was this death defying act that caused Western Civilization to search through endless rational material paradigms looking for what they had thrown away. The milk of human kindness was the Chrestos of Greece that drove Alexander and his armies to rid the world of tyranny. As Alexander's disciples pondered the books of human kindness gathered at Alexandria, it became clear that the seeds of deception were deep within the mentors of Athens. The solution was to destroy Hades, and that meant the destruction of Zeus. They saw the need for the desolation of Jerusalem, and they saw the need to prepare for New Jerusalem after the End Times of the purge. But the apocalyptic vision did not become clear until they realized that time for Aquarius was not yet at hand. Hapi could not restore Geb and Osiris until they were dead and forgotten. Only after the sin offering of the lamb could the cornucopia of Aquarius be brought to the Land of the Rising Sun. The sin offering was an extra 2000 years at the 1st of Aries.

Capricorn is the Scapegoat of the Lev 16:10. But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness. Capricorn is also the cornucopia of the Pagans. We see that the Denderah expresses Capricorn as the body of the Whale, Cetus, and a long eared goat. The union of these two beasts is surmounted by the planet Mars, the god of rational action. War is the "sexual response" to all rational convictions that cannot be brought into balance. But, Mars is not the god of war, rational conviction is the demigod of war, not rational orientation. The north line that is marked by an arrow above the head of the Humble Shepherd runs through the right leg of the scapegoat, the long ears, the "touch" of the staff of Mars and the "eye of Horus" in the name of Mars. The Humble Shepherd is a direct contrast to the Great Shepherd who is satisfied with putting eight beings into bondage. These eight beings are the Seven Sisters at the Pleiades signified by the seven stars before (left) and the single star after the Ram of rational conviction. The Seven Spirits of God are parcels of the Unified Being. When a person rises above the Seven Spirits of God the person is arrogant like a mountain goat on a high precipice. Such perceptions have to be brought down by external forces, as in Mene Mene Tekel Upsharsin, are by self sacrifice. In either case, it is the "First Born Son" that is sacrificed. The First Born Son is Geb, who will be discussed shortly. This truth caused


Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, to wet his pants. Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another. (Dan 5:6) No man who has ventured through the Shepherd's Door has done so without soiling his garments  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Prov 1:7)

Beneath the trinity of Cetus-Capricorn-Mars are the trinity Thoth-Aries-Seshat. This is the Shepherd's Door. This Humble Shepherd has an arrow over its head that points due north and directly to the star between the horns of Hathor. When the flock of the Great Shepherd is scattered, the Humble Shepherd can come down to Mother Earth and use the intuitively oriented mind and body it was given at birth. This is a birth of spirit, whereas the birth at Orion was a birth of water. It is this aspect that gives Capricorn the Cornucopia it is identified with. Seshat's wand speaks through the Humble Shepherd and Capricorn's long ears to say, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." The temples of Luxor and Karnak are true temples of Sol-o-Man. Their entrance ways are lined with ram sphinxes to depict eternally the shepherd's walkway. The great pylons before the inner sanctum of the temple are a symbolic "Wall of the Ruler." Until a child can get through the wall of arrogance they cannot be saved, for they will live in a universe of their own creation. Whereas that duplicates the creation by God, it leaves the arrogant king lost because it represents being without essence. Arrogance is the eighth king that was and was not. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. Until a person passes through the humiliation of outrageous personal judgment, they cannot know the Unknowable One. Yet, once they perceive their own arrogance, the Unknowable One becomes the very beast that nurtures their life, the mother's first born son.



And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. This often terrifying description tells us that the beast and the man are the composition that must function together for life to be abundant. Both the mind that rules the beast, and the mind that yields to the beast, are dysfunctional. The mind, which is the dream identity of the man, and the beast, which is the living substance of the body, must function as a team balanced over time with occasional trepidation in time like the retrograding of the planets. Then the heart and the head will belong to a king of kings.

John 10:7-11


Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. Tyranny and war are the result of carving mountains of laws without the creative facilities of a perceptive mind or creative hands. Tyranny cannot be avoided, for righteousness is tyranny over the beast. If a person is born humble and dies humble, then they die a righteous person. To be the Son of God a person, male or female, must experience the arrogance of man, and then kill the beast that "was and is not." Fantasy self perceptions are just as valid to an arrogant mind as true self perceptions. This is the "wrath of the lamb." To cleans one's self of the "wrath of being god" the self must take a bath in humility. Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar came to understand the Gateway of Gods at their hour of death. But, they experienced the first death from which physical resurrection is possible by a change in identity.

No mortal parent can place a child in these "muddy waters." Yet, they can tell stories so that when the child is caught on a Day of Judgment void of humility and struck down like Andromeda in a dream to break away from rational material bondage, they can muster the memories that tell them what is to come next. That is all scriptures are intended to do, and the supporting ritual keeps the faith. Actions taken to prevent the crucifixion of self desire are just another form of tyranny. If the emotion of desire becomes a whore, then the self righteous individual will become arrogantly defiant until they are crucified by some greater power. This is at the very core of human sexual response, because sexuality is simply the beast which the mind endeavors to control without reigns. The wisdom of the man and the beast is that a partnership between mental and physical prowess must be balanced by Emanuel. Only when the Seven Spirits of God are recognized in the conscious mind can the mind detect arrogance of the Eighth King who is of the seven. This is the most important lesson of life. It is the only door that leads to the Upper World away from the Bottomless Pit of emotional sexual conflict. Kobe was arrogant and lost his sense of order. Was he a rapist? That is a matter to be determined, but there can be no question that arrogance is fool's play. Arrogance is the antichrist. Arrogance is Seth. And what of Kobe's abductee? Did she flaunt her bouquet of temptation? Where is her judgment? In a society of righteous laws of no common sense, she will win the lottery for her flight of fancy? Is this justice, or a castration complex run amuck?

Now that we have passed through the door of the shepherd, we can prepare the way for benevolent things to come, as the mind and body become one in the individual self and in the Cosmic Self. The journey of Hercules, a Son of God, has been completed. Sagittarius has two tails. The upper tail is the "happy tail" of the physical body. Upon that tail sits the duck of Geb, and above the duck stands Hercules as he returns to his Father's House. The message written upon the "happy tail" is that of the Prodigal Son. It echoes Mark 1:11-12, And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness. This echo came from Columba (Horus) at the feet of Orion in the stars, and where the baptism took place upon the axis of the temple toward the summer solstice where the Cocky Man gets ahead of Truth. There Orion had his spirit tale between his legs showing the trepidation of entering "My Mother's House" on the journey to "My Father's House" as he forgot about Our Mother's House and Our Father's House. After the journey through the Sheep Door the wandering spirit arrived at the axis of the temple where a Sol-o-Man is rewarded as the King of He-Ba and the Son of God. This pleased the Son of Wisdom on whose Hapi tail stood Geb. The name of happiness belongs only to he that has it, for it is a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. We are named Hapi, or Geb, by the choices we make.

At the forelegs of the Centaur, whose head had been sacrificed from the messianic illogical body, is a barque of trepidation. It is a small boat, but it is perfectly aligned with the large boat upon which Ra sits as Cosmic Judge. This is the message of Rev 6:2, And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. This is the same sign seen by Constantine at the Battle for the Milvian Bridge on October 27, 312 AD. The victory through the Sheep Door is reiterated in Rev 22:1-5. And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.


 

There are no rocking boats to ride in the quadrant of Aquarius, because that is the Sheep Door of rational material perspectives. It is a place where convictions of personal belief bind the body and soul. Wisdom stands with the hind legs on the hallowed ground of Shu and Geb (rational and material) as evidence of a power filled foundation. But, the forelegs of wisdom stand upon the barque of trepidation that echoes that of the Hapi Creator, knowing that self knowledge  is only secure in the fantasies of the rigid mind where life giving waters do not flow. Life has few guarantees along the journey of faith, but lack of faith has a guarantee of disaster. Firm convictions, which are powered by negative belief, are a disaster of the open mind. The Denderah Sagittarius has the two faces of Janus, one before and one behind. The forward looking face is that of peaceful goals. The back looking face is that of a growling dog guarding a wise man's back. These are the faces of Hapi and Geb.

And, with regard to the subject of human sexual response, this Centaur's body is a mare, not a stallion. The man at the forward end has positive imagination, as represented by the barque of trepidation, the bow, the crown, and the guard dog. The feminine after parts contain the wing of an eagle and the emotions of joy and righteousness. The feet on the foundation of rational material being, and the feet on the boat of spiritual intuitive being, tell of a journey with balanced desire that unites the Two Lands. There is no sign of compulsive unbalanced desire in this centaur's hunting presence.

Now contrast the Denderah mark of wisdom to that of Babylon. The message of conquest in this sign of wisdom is devouring insensitivity. The presence of the Scorpion and the erect phallus leave no doubt regarding the sex of the centaur and the lack of circumcision. The physical tail provides no indication of the emotional character of the body. On the other hand, the spirit tail leaves no doubt regarding its threat. Also, the guard dog at the gate is a savage beast. The Parthian Cap and the "shoot to kill" stance of the face and the bow amplify the devouring nature of the man and beast who do not have balanced desire. The great wing in front of the stallion suggests that this wisdom is mostly of air.

The centaur was taken from a boundary marker in Assyria. Thus, though it shows a very aggressive stance, its intent was clearly defensive. What was it intended to defend? Clearly the protection of the palaces of a king is its purpose. But, why would some one establish such an "evil expression" at the gateway to a kingdom? The answer is also intuitively available. What you see is what you get. The king who would place a boundary marker to deter cads and thieves must have been a cad and a thief. This is Barabbas, himself, a notable prisoner in chains of self conviction who was prohibited in John 10:1-2. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

Now, let us return to Zeus and Leda. In the adjacent image we see that the priests of Constantine changed the image of the swan of Cygnus, from the seductive self satisfaction of Leda to the compassionate protection of the mother of Constantine, who was arguably a Mother of God on earth, and a saintly Mother in heaven.

In the Cygnus of Zeus we are brought the satisfaction of lustful pleasure. In the Cygnus of St. Helena we are given the Cross of Satisfaction earned by virtue of the conquests of her son, Constantine, and the fulfillment of a prophesy that was more than 3,500 years old at the Milvian Bridge on October 28, 312 AD when the Northern Cross became the Swan Song of the King of Kings on earth. The True Cross is where Zeus gave up his own identity to satisfy the dreams of a maiden, who subsequently became a mother of the Chrestus realm.

These two images summarize human sexual response in the daughter and the son. An attempt to prepare the way for youth that has only physical satisfaction is a sign of being conquered by unbalanced desire. In the myth of Leda and Zeus, their union produced twin sets of twins, Castor and Pollux of Gemini being the most famous. The moral is that wanton pleasure is something that will cause one to think, for Gemini's motto is "I Think." The moral of the Northern Cross is the acceptability of the sacrifice of the First Born Son. Barbarian behavior is that of Leda, the beast. Civilized behavior is that of Helena, the man. The Son of Ra is reason. Civilization is the reason for all circumcisions. By circumcision the barbarian devouring desire is kept in balance through a tradition of the sacrifice of the first born son. That is why Saint Helena was the one who found the True Cross, for her son was raised up after a trial. In the legend of Leda and Zeus, there were also born twin daughters from one egg. The daughter of Zeus was named Helen, and she became the Queen of Troy becoming the mistress of the Hellenes. Thus, when St. Helena is given the house of Cygnus, what goes around comes around.




When a civilization takes circumcision to the extreme, then castration represents mutilation of the First Born Son and the bondage of the individual to the edicts of the priests as they repress the First Born Daughter. Selket is the balanced desire represented by the theology of Egypt when total repression of sexuality was not a priestly function. Contrast her presence at the tombs of the pharaohs to the burqa clad women of repressive Islam and the celibacy of Christian clerics. That legacy was recorded in Egypt as the transfiguration of the lioness Sekhmet to sacred cow Hathor through scorpion Selket to represent balanced desire between outrageous righteousness and dependent compulsions. Selket represents ambition without greed. She is the motivation to do the "right thing." When Teachers of Righteousness kill God's Children for God's Sake they are usurping thieves just as much as any pirate on the high seas. Understanding the balance point is such a difficult process that discerning consciousness is mandatory, whether awake or asleep. Discerning consciousness does not come with birth of the body. Discerning consciousness comes with the experience of proper balance after birth from the virgin state. This requires that the beast be allowed its own voice. If the beast cannot express itself openly, then eventually the mind will go mad as it fights the 1st Nature of the beast with the 2nd Nature of its dominating paradigms.

When monotheism was born in Egypt the feminine characteristic of its pharaoh revealed a Teacher of Righteousness that has been shaking the fiber of Western Civilization for the last 3300 years. Here we see Akhenaten wringing the neck of a duck he offers to the arms of the Aten. Many Egyptologist have seen this engraving and assumed it represented the king in a prayerful act of preparation of a meal. And so it was. But, when it is realized that the duck is Geb-Hapi, an earth quaking chill should run down the spine. Akhenaten's priests attempted to establish what could be considered the first Bolshevik Revolution on earth. To accomplish the feat it was necessary to eliminate all the theogony of Egypt that had come before him while establishing a totalitarian central planning group of Chosen Ones. Before Akhenaten could take the position of Shu as the Son of the Sun, he would have to make reparations for the sins of Geb and Nut. This meant that the son first born of woman would have to be laid upon an altar as a sin offering to the Aten. Akhenaten sacrificing Geb is Abraham casting out Ishmael and sacrificing Isaac. But, Akhenaten sacrificing Hapi is a bold statement against salvation. This pharaoh was all air, and yet his motives are all Sekhmet's. Clearly the Heretic had taken leave of his senses..

The killing of Geb-Hapi by Akhenaten represents the first Eucharist offering in the 3300 years that Monotheism has been intolerant of the beast. Yet, the act was ancient polytheistic tradition at his time. As the Catholic Priest raises the Eucharist at the altar before the faithful, he is repeating the same fundamental tradition. The priest is Shu on rising, Geb upon breaking, and Hapi upon resurrection. All three done in the Light of the Sun.

Before an ideal state can be prepared it is necessary to sacrifice the mundane perceptions and corral the unruly beasts. The complacent and the arrogant egos must be made to align with the will of the Creator. The obvious nature of the spirit of the beast often hides the underlying reason for its existence. Unless we are capable of free will, we have no need to be righteous. Puppets cannot do wrong. This is the folly of the rational bondage of all forms of atheism. God may hold all the strings, but God does not dictate the choice to love and to live. Man may be a symbol of righteousness that no other species has matched, but any man that does not understand the body in which the dreams of heaven reside is simply an arrogant beast. Such beasts will spend eternity in the land of never been beside the dried river bed of life. Denial of God creates atheistic perceptions. As such, the act proves that Man is God, which defeats the supposition that there is no God. God is All. Man is All, but the body is of the beast, and Man must learn to live with the beast. That is what Nebuchadnezzar learned from his dream of a heavenly field in Dan 4:33-34. The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws. And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:


 

Egypt was founded by King Scorpion (Dynasty 0) when he walked through the sA above the muddy waters at the well of heaven. The goal established was to Unite the Two Lands. These are the lands of Nut and Geb. In the generations of Ra, he brought forth from himself Shu. The process is varied as breath of life (man), or masturbation (beast), but the end result is that Shu represented the element air, or rationalization. The implication of Shu with regard to Ra is that playing with oneself leads to blindness, for Ra's children were constantly "borrowing" his eye to perform acts of self creation. Tefnut was spewed from the mouth of Ra, or brought forth as a twin of Shu during an act self stimulating copulation. Invariably, she was the echo of the watery abyss from which Ra emerged upon his self creation. On the allegorical level Ra is cognitive consciousness that causes. He is the primal urge. Shu is the rationalization of cognition. And, since all rationalizations tend toward fantasy, Ra was exacerbated with Shu, the Son of the Sun, and had his first emotion, who was Tefnut. Tefnut and Neith share the visible abyss qualities, and in some vignettes Neith is shown in place of Tefnut. This trinity is echoed throughout the theogony of Egypt. When Freud began to study the abyss of the unconscious mind, he resolved three entities he called Super Ego, Ego, and Id. Super Ego should be closely associated with Shu, not Ra. Ego and self creation are one essence. The Id is the psychic abyss and subliminal essence of the unconscious mind in Freudian terms. Modern pop psychology still carries the Father, Mother, and Child of Shu, Tefnut, and Ra, or Osiris, Isis, and Horus. There should be no remaining doubt that the Christian Trinity is the same; Father, Spirit, and Son.

The legends say that Ra forbid his children to do what he had done. But, being adolescents, they managed to take the Eye of Ra and used it to make love and brought forth the first born children. These were the twins, Nut and Geb. Now Nut and Geb were inseparable. So, Ra (Atum) decided they had to be pulled apart in order to stop the compulsions of their youth. The act of separating Nut and Geb was the Fall of Man. As a result, man lost heaven and fell to the mundane land below, which he gave his name as Earth. But, the second set of twins could not forget their eternal embrace and Geb longed to be back in the arms of his first love. That longing represented the fall of man.

As an assurance that Geb and Nut did not get back together, Ra (Atum) placed Shu between them. Of course, Tefnut/Neith felt the sorrows of her children and she placed herself beneath Geb so as to catch his fall. This had the effect of causing Geb to be a mama's boy when he was not pursuing Nut. But, Geb never lived up to Shu's ideals, and Shu kept him down in the Land Under the Land. There Geb would have to stay until the Sun began to rise in a new creation. This represents the creation of the first parents, Shu and Tefnut. They were not only the parents of the children they birthed, Nut and Geb, but they were also the mother and father of Ra, the Sun itself. This is the nature of the mature phase of life. The responsible ages care for children and parents in afes to come and ages gone by.

Nut and Geb were allowed to have children of their own, so long as they had no children on any day of the year. In remorse over their lack of purpose and forbidden pleasure, they were a sad couple, indeed. Then one day they met Thoth. He informed them that the calendar had only 360 days, but the sun took a full 365 days in its annual cycle. So, Nut and Geb obeyed their ancestors and managed to capture the Eye of Ra for five days when the sun did not shine. During those days they gave birth to Osiris, Horus the Elder, Seth, Isis, and Nepthys. The dominion of Earth was granted to Osiris, and he established civil order and taught the cultivation of plants, domestication of animals and all acts of value to civilization. Osiris is the fundamental archetype of all responsible human capacities. No one remembers where he began, but the record of his accomplishments were more than legendary, since he represented all human memory. Osiris is the primal Jungian archetype, and the Lord of All. The second child was Horus the Elder. This Horus is essentially the child consciousness before a sense of responsibility for consciousness is needed. As such, the Egyptian legends do not say much about the actions of Horus the Elder. The third son is Seth. He is rational self consciousness. This gives Seth strong qualities and the high potential for behavior less desirable to others. When exaggerated, Seth's self seeking ways border on the chaotic. The first daughter born of Nut and Geb was Isis. She is the essence of intuition and motherhood. But her role as mother does not come until the selfishness of Seth results in the death of Osiris, who Seth tricks to go into an eternal resting place and then seals it on a journey down a stream of consciousness. After the death of Osiris, Isis comes into her true role in Egypt as the house of sentiment and compassionate love. In this role she has a son by Osiris after she brings him back to life and fashions a phallus of wood. The idea is that the virgin birth of Horus, the son of Isis and Osiris, is a result of legendary memories and sentimental care, and Horus is a wooden boy who must come and restore his father's legacy by becoming a man in his own right, as an archetypal record. This child then carries the mantle of responsibility for all of Egypt after battling Seth for eighty years. The second daughter is Nephthys. She is essentially the "house wife" and material woman. She is the consort of Seth suggesting her rational characteristics. All together the five children of Nut and Geb are an echo of the first five gods of the theogony, and the five Sun Boats of Trepidation on a second journey of the generations of Ra.

The correspondences are variants with the following general equivalences. Light = Ra = Horus the Elder,  Air = Shu = Seth, Water = Tefnut = Isis, Earth = Geb = Nephthys, and Fire = Nut = Osiris. Ra and Horus are the light of day and represent qualities of cognition. Shu and Seth represent qualities of rational identities, with Shu being the rationalization of fatherhood, and Seth being the rationalization of self identity. Tefnut and Isis represent qualities of the watery abyss, with Tefnut being boiling exasperation and a tranquil safety net (Neith), and Isis being the compassionate restorer. Geb and Nephthys represent the mundane and material qualities of the earth, with Geb being somewhat less than a real man, and Nephthys have much of the self centered qualities of a material woman. Nut and Osiris represent the fire of heaven and the eternal flame in the duat. She fans the mortal fires of ambitious desire, and he reignites mortal fires by resurrection and reincarnation of spirits from the past in the bodies of the future.

Horus the son of Isis and Osiris has four sons, who are essentially earth, water, air, and fire, and Horus is the light. They are the genii of Horus, which, being associated with viscera, represent the genes of the soul, and the "guts" of a being. The five elements are actually seven spirits of the Creator. The aspect of Father, Mother, and Son are the trinity within Horus, since he goes about Egypt restoring the realm of Osiris with the aid of Isis. These three qualities of light represent the triple essence required for communication. There must be the light of intent, which is the father. There must be a medium through which intent can pass, which is the mother. And, there must be a form of cognition. These three parts are required between any two beings attempting to communicate. If the parts function for the two beings then the dual cognition becomes one as the communication is replicated, and the intent of the originator is identified as intent within the receiver. The medium of communication can be any form capable of carrying the message. The message is the Divine Communication, or the Word of God.

As the Word of God transfers between the two communicative beings the lack of experience of the medium is critical to learning. If the medium is experienced, then the messages can be garbled by prior messages within the medium and within the memories that Osiris restores. It is this garbling of the messages within the medium that brings forth a sense of self righteousness. When the correspondences between the Creator and the created, or source and destination, cease to flow, then the idyllic garden is lost in the mundane "wooden" being that is the destination. It is, therefore, a failure to communicate for which the First Born Son carries the blame. Because the First Born Son, or infantile self consciousness, attempts to find pleasure before responsibility, his mundane qualities result in the Fall of Man. The cause is attention to selfish desire, as opposed to attention to Divine Intent. This is the source of the motive to circumcise. It is a mark of a covenant between mortal being and Eternal Intent to remind the mortal being that desire is the source of all mistakes and accomplishments. The proscription is the same one given to Shu and Tefnut, and to Nut and Geb. But, Geb bears the full brunt of the covenant because he is just a mundane man incapable of reaching higher ideals. In the Geb-Hapi duality we have a mundane compassionate man who is capable of sentiment, and is a mixture of earth and water. Geb-Hapi is the muddy waters of creation. He is the "salt of the earth" and the "life giving waters."

The vignette of Nut and Geb is a star chart in which the noon day summer solstice is at Virgo, and the midnight winter solstice is at Sculptor (4500 BC). The full vignette above shows that Geb desires the double crown of Tefnut (Neith), indicating that he is a mama's boy. But, he is covered with feathers, which is a symbol for air and Shu. So, he is his father's son, but he is dominated by his emotions. Nut, is lifted up by Shu and is clearly the whole of the upper heavens. Shu stands as an example for his fallen son suggesting that Geb get off his behind and stand for his ideals. In the celestial sense, Nut and Geb are the galactic field above and island in the sea below, and Shu is the firmament of the ecliptic while Tefnut (Neith) is the firmament of the Milky Way. When Geb's world is invaded by the "sea peoples" they "muddy the waters" with mundane emotions, being a mixture of mundane man and intuitive woman. This is the "mama's boy" aspect of Geb.

Sailing up the back of Nut's legs is the Barque of Ra. (See next image.) The Sun Boat contains Thoth, Ra, and Maat. Going up to the highest heavens Thoth is asleep at the helm. This is the Horus the Elder aspect. Maat, who is looking backward at the captain of the ship is "She Who Faces Her Lord." This is the fundamental aspect of Maat. She is common sense in divine presence. She is the medium ready to receive the message of cosmic intent. On her head is a great feather, indicating that she is gathering the intent of Ra in her dreams. Upon her knee we can see the intent of Ra building as a duplicate of the fully formed intent on Ra's knee. The intent of Ra is quite clear. Life is the skipper's goal. This should appear as a ridiculously simple communication allegory, but when dealing with fallen men, it is the profound truth in the muddy waters. This profound truth will ultimately be the test of all men who will strive toward heavenly delights.



Once the light of Shu has been passed at the solstice and the Sun Boat coasts down to the west, Thoth has received the message of Ra's intent. Thoth shows the message and holds a stylus at his chest, with an ankh and a scepter of flint on his knee. Unlike Ra, Thoth does not carry the dream of life on his head, but places it as an "autopilot" sail before him. This is the nature of Thoth. He learns from common sense and then sticks to what he knows and does things "by the book." Thoth is simply the habits of knowledge and records. On the downward journey Ra has a different countenance. The serpent that had the Sun Disk has been discriminated, and the serpent wears a feathered crown, and all sailors have the same size ankh. This tells us that the occupants of the Sun Boat have communicated with each other and they have the same image of Ra's intent for life after "raising the serpent in the wilderness."

Maat is the consummate dreamer, for the full feather of her youth has gone to Thoth's library, and she has a small feather of hope for another Chapter of Coming Forth By Day. Neith holds her arms high to catch the Ka of the sailors of Ra and carry them through the abysmal darkness. Neith's hieroglyph is a net. The Net of Neith is where all the Sailors of Ra will eventually fall, for she is the Milky Way and the tranquil waters above the abyss. Tefnut is in the abyss and the tempest at the back of Nut's legs.

A legend of the prophecy of Nefer Rohu has been handed down from the times of Sneferu prior to the building of the first pyramids. The prophesy addresses a concern that Egypt will become void of Great Men and the Asiatics will descend upon Egypt and destroy the land. There is much evidence to support the idea that the creation of the great pyramids of Egypt was to assure the supply of Great Men in Egypt. There can be little doubt that the most useful aspect of the necropolises of Egypt was their capacity to keep the images of Great Men alive in the youth of Egypt. It is from the necropolises that the reincarnations of Osiris came. To fully appreciate the prophecy it is important to realize that Egypt associated itself with the land of Geb, while the Asiatics associated themselves with the land of Ashtarte, or Nut. The journey is a passing of time until the tabernacle of the sun reaches the Land Under the Land. There the land will be void of Great Men, because that is where Geb and Osiris reside. Geb is mundane, and Osiris has passed away.

The Narmer palette illustrates this same concern, for Narmer is shown smiting an Asiatic. Above the Asiatic is an image of Horus standing on six poles or reeds and using a hook to open the nostrils of the bearded one. The man in Narmer's grip would necessarily be the eighth king, and Narmer intends to send him to perdition. Behind Narmer is a subject holding a pair of sandals. And above the subject's head is a seven petal flower indicating the presence of Seshat and a new beginning.

This palette was a precursor of legends that were ultimately carried on in the scriptures of the Hebrews. The scene is a religious presentation. The removal of the shoes indicates that Narmer has arrived at the hallowed ground where he intends to Unite the Two Lands. Shoe removal is a metaphor for facing reality, as in getting the feet on the ground. The subject carries a small container which probably contains embers of charcoal for kindling a fire.

As discussed earlier, the death of the eighth king is the termination of the arrogant ways of childhood. The Asiatics were viewed as usurpers who were cohorts of Seth, and indeed the nations of Mesopotamia held self esteem in high esteem, and Seth was the third son of Eve, and the third son of Nut. Seth was a dominant father figure in the Land Between Two Rivers, Mesopotamia. Two men can be seen swimming in the underworld escaping the wrath of Narmer, who walks on water. And on the top of the palette are two figures of Hathor with her cow horns and ears. Narmer is ceremoniously restoring Egypt for Hathor and her son, Horus. He is carrying on the legacy of Osiris. He is defeating the "sea peoples" who had fallen from grace in Gemini. Male and female twins, a man at "Seven's Door" smiting an arrogant king with his shoes off and fire behind, are all spirits of the New Aeon known as Taurus.

It is on this scene that Akhenaten and his priests arrive during the first quarter of the 14th Century BC. So, when Akhenaten wrings the neck of the duck of Geb, he is essentially doing the same acts as Narmer against the Asiatics and Sea Peoples, but he has directed his angst at Egypt, for Geb and Hapi are in his neck wringing hands. The Egyptians had proven themselves during the seventeen dynasties prior to when Ahmose expelled the Hyksos (Shepherds) at the beginning of the 18th Dynasty. But, what Akhenaten was doing to the duck of Geb was the highest heresy of all. He was correcting Egypt for its fall from grace, and he had the intention of eliminating all the descendants of Shu and Tefnut. He was to be the new Shu, and Nefertiti was to be the new Tefnut. As the king and queen of the Two Lands they would become the mother and father of the god, Aten. And all subjects of the world would obey the commands of the Aten, as polytheism was repressed from the face of the earth. The trinity of Father-Mother-Son would suffice the needs of all the children. The global character of the Egyptian Empire called for more universal principles that could be applied throughout the world. The goal of Uniting the Two Land exceeded the goal of restoring the lost soul of Osiris. The competing theocracy was that of Amun. The Aten was essentially a Shamash representation of the Sun. What Monotheists were doing is reorienting Egypt to the galactic axis and establishing a cosmic realm that would last forever. More importantly, the images of the reform would be decidedly humanistic. The history of animism was coming to an end. Humanity was now a god in its own right, and the religion had to change to reflect that relationship. It was not until the Byzantine Empire was formed after Constantine that we saw the complete annihilation of the animal spirits of Egypt. The theme of the "man and the beast" on the Denderah zodiac is a clear indication that the Kingdom of Books had failed to make gods out of the human animal. The ego busting theology had to be restored. It is the crushing blow upon the human ego that shows the Christianity was a direct evolutionary result of the conquests of King Scorpion.

These episodes of conquest were continued in the scriptures of the Monotheists as Exod 2:10-17 illustrates. And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water. And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren. And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian {apparently not considered a man}, and hid him in the sand {Seth killing Osiris}. And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow? And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known. Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well. Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.

And still further we hear the words of the Shepherd Gate echoing in Exod 3:1-10. Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

We also know that the ram of Amun was called the "unknowable one," as was the Yahweh of the Hebrews. Both cults had ram deities and both cults claimed that a messianic king would soon arrive to save their peoples. The differences in the cult are simply a matter of time, place and humanism, for they have the same Creator and the same creation, without the ancient respect for animal wisdom.

But, when men yield to the desires of the beast, they must learn the hard way that the land flowing with milk and honey is a dream of Seventh Heaven caused by the desire to leave the bottom land at the well of the Seven Sisters because of repressed guilt in the past; Seth killed Osiris. The God of the pharaohs is the God of Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets. The battle of the sexes, the battle of the man and beast, the battle of the traditions, and the battle for Milivian Bridge all have the same motivation. That motivation is the mortal desires of men. When the land dries and the rains do not come, then the parched earth gives up its secrets and the man yields to the beast as desire to live replaces desire to excel. Balancing those desires is the responsibility of a Humble Shepherd who passes through the land of the rational material and ascends as a shepherd to the land of the Father-Mother across the crystal waters.

Judgment Day is coming for us all. Kobe will have his chance to right a wrong, even if he is innocent. For on one night of lonely desire, Kobe failed to listen to the wisdom of his ancestors, and let desire get the better of him. Now his experience is a harbinger of Judgment Day for others, as he sacrifices the innocence he claims. Yet, it is also clear that the "tale" that motivated his desire has been painted as a vestal virgin resting peacefully in a land flowing with milk and honey. 50,000 years of human bondage suggests that Eagle's vixen is not a daughter of crystal waters, but a serpent in muddy waters. Who will judge her mountain carved without hands?


Hunefer Papyrus, a statement about choice that reestablished balance in Ancient Egypt,
 when Solomon's Son lost the Holy Ground.

From the death of Amenophis III (1391-1353) to the installation of Seti I (1306-1290) was only 47 years. But, those 47 years saw the total collapse of the 18th Dynasty of Egypt (1550-1307). It was an empire for 243 years, or 16 years longer than America has been an independent nation. Egypt collapsed from the only world class empire to a kingdom that barely existed beyond the Nile Valley. The trauma that hit Egypt and the civilized world has resulted in repressive memories of Judgment Day for over 3200 years. The Biblical story of Babylon, some seven centuries later, was a mild echo, if anything at all. In both cases the change was theological, and then political. In both cases the concept of Judgment Day rose to consciousness before the fall and within the surviving realm. The desolation of Holy Jerusalem is a story about arrogance unchecked.

The Hunefer Papyrus represents the theological response to Judgment Day that was initiated during the reign of Seti I. The Book of Daniel records the transition of the sacred sciences when the Persian Empire was formed in the after glow of a Judgment Day. Within forty years of Alexander's conquest of the Persian Empire, the Septuagint Bible was publish by Alexander's dynasty because they knew Judgment Day was coming. Alexander himself is on the record of establishing the great library at Alexandria in order to consolidate all knowledge books in one place. Being tutored by Aristotle, Alexander and Ptolemy I, a general of Alexander, would have known the value of the book learning and the potential for an institutional resource of knowledge outside the auspices of the temple priests. The secular knowledge would become available to all scholars and their pupils and raise the quantity of academic learning by orders of magnitude. At the same time, the secular learning would need to be balanced by the holistic syncretism of the wisdom in the temple venues. This represented the beginning of the separation of church and state in Western Civilization. With the democratic principles gestating in Greece prior to Alexander, the evolution of political structure was destined to change dramatically. The Zoroastrians predicted Judgment Day would come in 48 BC, and along with the Day of Judgment, a New Aeon would rise. That Aeon would have the name 1st of Pisces. But, Judgment Day did come, and when it did, it killed the New Aeon within the cosmic womb.

The Denderah temple is clearly a summary of the whole history of Ancient Egypt, excluding the political debacle between Amenophis III and Seti I. That memory was too painful to be kept on the conscious level, though the religious structure demonstrates substantial corrections to assure that the debacle was not forgotten at the subliminal level and to assure that it did not occur again. One of the effects was for religious structures to diverge in mythological presentation without varying the spiritual outcome of each theology. The reason for this is difficult to comprehend in modern religion, but in the earlier political structures the temple priesthoods were essential to the state. To maintain the state the theological basis had to be played "close to the vest." The primary political lesson learned during the 18th Dynasty was that the dispersal of theological knowledge made the state very vulnerable to enemies who understood the rituals of the state. The Mithrasian cult that came out of Persia after Alexander was clearly one that had the consumption of Hellenism as a goal. The Sacred Cow was disguised as a bull so that the warriors would fight to save the realm. It was only when the individual reached the rank of Father that they realized the bovine was the Bull of My Mother. For that reason the cult was bound by a "code of silence" under the penalty of death. The Mithraic Mysteries are still mysterious today because of the "code of silence." The Denderah temple design suggests that the priest-architects of that temple were attempting to "spread the truth" in an evangelism for Horus, the Lotus Child of Isis. The direct connections between the heavens and the mythological culture is evidence of evangelism, as opposed to a "code of silence." Yet, that very visibility is where the Achilles heel was exposed. Altruism is a tool for fools to self destruct. Wisdom requires the two faces of Janus to see what comes from ahead and behind.

After the gnosis goals of the priests under Cleopatra were not met, a substantial doubt in the prophetic aspects of the culture had to develop. This doubt would grow on a subliminal level because people do not think deep enough to become aware of the cause of events. The icons discussed in this essay were open to public knowledge. An individual who desired the wisdom could serve time in the temple and it would be abundantly clear that the images of the heavens were telling a story. The story was the history of civilization. The story showed the results to expect within the culture for conscious and unconscious action, and the process was sufficiently universal that all the cultures that had diverged from the 18th Dynasty could be comprehended. The star stories were common sense, for no ruler could erase the stars. But, common knowledge in the hands of cads is a recipe for destruction. The fault of the gnosis of Denderah is that it was the truth.

The central theme of a story about the coming of Aquarius as First father, or Jesus as Adam, is that understanding love is the covenant between the Mother of God and all Fallen Men. Conquest was not the central focus, though the power to conquer was not put down by any means. The objective was to conquer with wisdom. "In this sign you shall conquer" is not a subtle prescription to people who are familiar with astrology, celestial correspondence, and psychology. The Denderah Zodiac was a Book of Revelation before there was a Book of Revelation, or even a set of Gospels. The temple "salted" the world with enough Aquarian like priests that it could greatly influence the spiritual make up of the whole Middle East. The factual nature of that statement is abundantly clear by what happened to the culture of Egypt after the death of the last pharaoh. Fearing a total loss of the religious history of man, the Gnostic priests began to convert the architectural wisdom into Greek texts. Many of the versus in the Gospels and the Book of Revelation require the images from the Denderah temple in order to be properly understood. All of the New Testament, and most of the Old Testament based upon the Septuagint Bible, require knowledge of history and the precession of the equinoxes to be understood. So, it is not surprising that the interpretation of Christian Biblical texts becomes very difficult when the stars are erased and the temples are covered in sand. The Egyptians claimed that the soul had to be protected by temples and necropolises in order for the Eternal Flame to survive. It is quite clear that the Bible words were insufficient. The Bible cannot orient a reader to anything but other words. This test ultimately leads to false prophets because the words do not show the "graven images in the heavens."

If September 11, 2001 teaches us anything, it should be the power in deceiving young men in the name of God. That is what Judgment Days are always about. Everyone loves a truthful giver. But children who are not given good judgment cannot tell the difference between the fables of the ancients and jets flying into skyscrapers. The so-called terrorists who died for the Islamic Jihad in preparation for a Judgment Day in 50,000 years were taught to completely deny the truth of life's river of Crystal Waters. This was not insanity; it was Divinity in Wolves' Skin. This was the Golden Fleece that Greece had warned about. While America sang the songs of Hakuna Mata, her "friends" were planning her destruction. The trillion dollars plus bill to repair the damage done on September 11, 2003 is a drop in the bucket compared to the budget deficits defending America's freedom will cost.

In the meantime, what power America has left in its weakening religious strength is being bled out by lawyers, bleeding hearts, media moguls, and academics, who deny the 911 Call of Judgment Day. Kobe Bryant was not paying attention in the summer of 2003 when he let his temptation get the better of his poor judgment. Kobe is a symptom of a society in denial. The same society that suffered the most expensive devastation of any single attack in history, cannot see through its own veil of innocent denial. America is not innocent any more. Of America it can be said, "Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another." Terror is the weapon of choice to those who swing God's mace. That is history's message. It is the Wrath of the Lamb, and no lion can stand before it.

The response to terror is not bravery under attack, for that puts the terrorist on the offense. The only response to the terror of an eye for an eye is ten eyes for one until there are no terrorists to reply. The temple at Denderah shows that with good judgment man can follow the cosmic route, if man circumcises his cocky ways. America ran from Kuwait to Baghdad in very short order for one and only one reason. And, it was not might, for we had might in Vietnam. It was the Light of Liberty's Flame. America showed the terrorists that they were correct, we are not willing to die. Their own arrogance failed to reveal to them that we are not afraid to destroy in the name of God, either. Once we lose that strength, America will lose its World Class position, and drift back toward third world complacency like England and Europe.

So, what are the consequences of not having the direct interface between words and sky? The consequences are total loss of common sense regarding the providential life. A temple points to the river bank and the words written on the temple walls, columns, and ceilings, are all oriented to the source of the words. As Sagittarius crosses the temple axis the words of Rev 21:23-27 and Rev 22:1-4 are sensibly aligned to the architecture. A participant can feel the oneness and directly correlate the providential signs with the architectural creation. This is direct communication with the Creator in a gnosis of common sense. It is common sense in cosmic action.

Rev 21:23-27
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Rev 22:1-4


And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

A participant would look down the axis of the temple upon exiting and see the river of life called Hapi, as the message became clear as crystal. They could leave the pronaos and look heavenward and see the ceiling of the cosmos they had read about inside the temple. All would be one, and all would be perfected as the individual conquered personal arrogance and depression, the Asiatics and the Sea Peoples would have no effect on them. That is what temples are supposed to do for the participating faithful who go through the Shepherd's Door.

In today's religious venues, many well meaning false prophets send there followers on endless journeys from reference to reference until the exhausted neophyte simply concedes that the prophet knows more than he or she. That puts the false prophet between the prayer and the Creator. The objective of classical mystery religions was to provide a path out of the Minotaur's Labyrinth. Academics in our modern world, whether secular or religious, simply send the seeker of wisdom and truth on a winding path where they learn how to manipulate knowledge and appear to speak truth. This behavior was proscribed by Plato after Socrates set us on a course of impiety.

Plato used the god Thamus, "king of all Egypt," to speak to us:

"Most ingenious Theuth," said the god and king Thamus, "one man has the ability to beget arts, but the ability to judge of their usefulness or harmfulness to their users belongs to another; and now you, who are the father of letters, have been led by your affection to ascribe to them a power the opposite of that which they really possess. For this invention will produce forgetfulness in the minds of those who learn to use it, because they will not practice their memory. Their trust in writing, produced by external characters which are no part of themselves, will discourage the use of their own memory within them. You have invented an elixir not of memory, but of reminding; and you offer your pupils the appearance of wisdom, not true wisdom, for they will read many things without instruction and will therefore seem to know many things, when they are for the most part ignorant and hard to get along with, since they are not wise, but only appear wise."'

As proof that Plato's perception is fact, consider the following excerpt from the WebMD article above.



The Limits of Lust

People built their hopes and dreams on relationships, not mating strategies. But there's nothing wrong with knowing what you want and going for it, says George Williams, PhD, an Atlanta-based marital and sex therapist.

"I help people become conscious of their own desires," Williams tells WebMD. "It is perfectly legitimate for people to be clear about what they do and do not want in a partner."
_   _   _

Adultery doesn't just happen. One member of a relationship has to switch strategies. Why?

"People abandon their long-term sex strategy in favor of a short-term strategy because of lust," Williams says. "But affairs are very complex entities. They are always problematic and usually dangerous. When people tell me they are having an affair, they think the most dangerous part is getting caught. I think the most dangerous thing is to fall in love."

The least dangerous kind of an affair, he says, is the kind of one-night stands that happen at a convention or a conference where people part and never meet again. The most dangerous are secret, longstanding affairs that go on for years with fantasies and hopes and dreams of building a relationship.

What makes it an affair? Williams thinks his answer will surprise most men -- and few women.

"I think an affair occurs when two people are in a committed relationship, and one or both has a relationship with another that has secret content and sexual tension and they hide all of it from their partner," he says.

"A common misconception among men is, 'I am not having an affair because I have not slept with the other woman.' But they dream, they fantasize, they wish they were with the other person -- that is what I call fanning the coals."
