The Two Truths and the Types

1 to 20

p. 3, Fig. "The Hindu goddess Maya {Maya} impersonates the two truths, the flowing {temporal, transitory} and the fixed {sempiternal, transcendental}.

p. 4

"the Egyptian "change of heart" was represented by taking the old heart out of the mummy's breast to embalm or preserve it apart and replacing it by the beetle, a type of change {\H^PR\ ('change') being the name of the scarab-beetle deity} and transformation."

"darkness was the first, and it is the negation of light. ... Coca means "No" in the language of the Tapuya tribe of Brazil, and their name of the Coca-Tapuya signifies the No-people, or those who date from ... the Negation, the Darkness out of which they came." {\COCa\ is similar to \QAQ\, meaning (DMWA, p. 932b) 'raven', a black-feathered bird.}

"In churches, especially in England, the men used to sit on the south side, or {when facing eastward} right hand; the women to the north on the left hand."

p. 5

"In John and the Dead Sea Scrolls, James Charlesworth ... writes :

[quoted] ... men are categorized either "sons of light," "sons of truth," {Strong's 571 \>EMET\ ('truth') : cognate with \emmet\, Middle English \AMETe\, Old English \Aemette\ 'formica, murmex', reckoned in Bauddha scriptures as forms of asura-deities} and

"sons of Zadok {Strong's 6659 \S.adowq\ : cf. Strong's 4442 \Melkiy-s.edeq\ 'king of righteousness'}," or as "sons of darkness."

"Consider Psalm 78 :

[quoted] I will open my mouth in a parable : I will utter dark sayings of old ... .

Parable and dark sayings of old are ... mythology ... ."

pp. 7-8 "Hor-Apollo, an Egyptian ... who compiled a small dictionary of ... [p. 8] hieroglyphics, says that to denote the mother, the Egyptians delineate a Vulture ... ." {This is the determinative of \mwt\ 'mother' : cognate with Strong's 4194 \mawet\ 'death'. In some accounts, DEKSI-thea ('reception-goddess') is (DCM, s.v. "Romulus", p. 407a) mother of Romulus, who "saw twelve" (DCM, s.v. "Remus", p. 403a) "vultures" : cf. how (PE, s.v. "", p. 194b) "twelve sons were born by DAKS.In.a." As mother of (PE, s.v. "", p. 195a) Phala-da 'fruit-giving', may be associated with naks.atra Phal-gun.i 'fruit-threaded' (spaghetti squash?). If, however, these "twelve sons" be identical with the 12 vultures, then Deksi-thea must have been the vultures' mother, leaving the true mother of Romulus to have been Ilia, so that her aequivalent Ila's son (Bhagavata Upa-puran.a -- PE, s.v. "Ila I.3)") Puru-uravas may match Romulus.

When a woman was miracuously impraegnated by god Quirinus, she gave birth to a son who founded the Sabine city CURes 'spear' (DCM, s.v. "Modius Fabidius", p. 294a).

When Puru-uravas stole their wealth, (MBh, "Adi Parvan" 75 -- PE, s.v. "Pururavas I.4)(i)") "brahmins took Sanatkumara {with \-KUmaRa\ cf. \CURes\} along with them and made representations to the king. Puru-uravas did not give them back their wealth."

Much as the army of Romulus was rescued by eruption of "a boiling hot spring" (DCM, s.v. "Romulus", p. 408a;

so, similarly, (MBh, "Adi Parvan" 75 -- PE, s.v. "Pururavas I.4)(i)") "Pururavas brought down from svarga three Agnis", who are the Vaidik fire-gods; for, (PE, s.v. "Urvas`i I.5)", p. 812b) "Pururavas generated three fives from Jatavedas."

"Romulus' men abducted all the young women" who were attending the festival of Consus (DCM, s.v. "Romulus", p. 408a).

In order to regain his wife Urvas`i, Puru-uravas had to combat Kes`in, whom he (while he, Puru-uravas, was flying through the air) saw carrying her way by force (PE, s.v. "Pururavas I.2").

A dogberry-tree derived from Romulus (DCM, s.v. "Romulus", p. 408b);

and Puru-uravas's apsaras-wife Urvas`i became a creeper-plant "separated from Pururavas a period of for sixty years" (PE, s.v. "Pururavas I.2").

"suddenly a terrifying storm broke, accompanied by an eclipse of the sun. ... As soon as the storm was over ..., the king [Romulus] was found to be missing." (DCM, s.v. "Romulus", p. 408b)

"the Gandharvas caused a lightning to flash in the king's harem. In the light of the lightning Urvas`i saw the king ... . The king caught hold of the lambs and returned to the harem ... . But Urvas`i was gone out of the place and was on her way." (PE, s.v. "Urvas`i I.3)", p. 812a) {Cf. the wife who similarly vanished from Takni, the Castle of Jewels in the "Story of Jans`ah" in the 1001 Nights.}

{When the founder of Roma is said to have been Romus (DCM, q.v., p. 408b), he is described as son of IMATHion, whose name is cognate with \<IMAD\ 'pillar, column, mast' (DMWA, p. 752a) : but this is likely proprely to be father of the 12 vultures : for, in TL-MRJ imagery, a pillar (repraesenting a rising current of air) is often depicted under each wing of a soaring vulture.}

p. 8 "truth ... is the ostrich feather ... . Hor-Apollo ... says the symbol was adopted because of the equal length of the ostrich feathers." {It is far more probable that this is symbol is employed because to tell the whole truth is to expound the-why-and-the-wherefore of it : thus, Strong's 3283 \ya<en\ ('ostrich') is derived from Strong's 3282 \ya<an\ 'because that, forasmuch as'; or, because truth is heeded, (DMWA, p. 1268b) \wa<in\ 'attentive, heedful', and \wa<iyah\ 'consciousness' (because consciousness is based on awareness of truths). Furthermore, an ostrich will place its head in concealment so as not to see the undesired : for, a paragon-of-truth must "see no evil; hear no evil; speak no evil".} [written 22 Aug 2018]

pp. 8-9 indigenous name for Aiguptos

p. 8

"Egypt is designated in the old inscriptions ...

{INACCURATE! \KM-t\ 'black' is the name for the delta (of the Nile) only'; above the delta, the land is designated, instead, as \DSR-t\ 'red'; while the pair of both lands combined, i.e., thewhole of Aiguptos, is designated \TL-MRJ\ 'land of pyramids'.}

p. 9

by a word signifying "the black land," ... Kamit.}

p. 9

"when Moses was with the Lord {INCORRECT! : the scripture-text writeth \>lohiym\ 'the gods', not \>donay\ 'the lord'} during forty days and forty nights he was taught the written law ... ."

{The pair of inscribed tablets which were given there at Siynay to Mos^eh, he deliberately destroyed (S^mowt 32:19), so as to defy >lohiym. In retaliation, >lohiym turned his "back parts" (S^mowt 33:23) toward Mos^eh as a sign of repudiating Mos^eh.}

"The ... ermine worn by English judges continues the typology of ... justice ... in the Judgement Hall. The ermine, says the Persian Bundahishn [24:12], was the first of the fur animals ... ."

{English \ermine\ is derived from \Armenios\, name of the father of Er, who witnessed (W:"Myth of Er") post-mortem divinely-undertaken judgement upon souls of dead mortals.} {\Armenios\ must be cognate with IRMin, a Germanic deity whose su`l ('pilastre') is celebrated with festivity : cf. the name of "many-pillared >IRaM" mentioned in the Qur>an.}

p. 9, Fig. depiction of the goddess of truth {Her name is \ML<-t\, perhaps cognate with (DMWA, p. 1021a) \LaGM\ 'mining', to indicate that truth-seeking is alike to digging deeply in order to find facts, which (alike to ore) must be refined in order to obtain their essence in the form of principles.}

p. 10 "The double ... of the Mysteries ... may be learned from the Book of the Dead ... -- the water of purifying and the water of vivifying, the Pool of Natron and the Pool of Salt." ["Lake of Natron" (LeP&N:EBD, p. 36)] {Two of the major categories of holy scripture of the Bon religion (originating in rTa-gzigs = Tajikistan) are the Chab dKar ('White Waters') and the Chab Nag ('Black Waters') : Tsadra "Bon"; "B&NyTD".}

p. 607, n. 1:15 "Book of the Dead or Ritual, ch. 17." {This could be equivalent to WB:BDET 17:26 (in vol. 2, p. 95) : "I am the keeper of the volume of the book of things which are and of things which shall be."}

p. 14 "the word "Emim" is used in place of idols as a subtle reference ... ." {The primary meaning of Strong's 367 \>eymah\ is 'horror, terror'; it is sometimes applied (as a derogatory term) to eidola/idols. But a more meaningful application of the term (Strong's 368 \<eymiym\) is, in Dbariym 2:10, to a vanished nation said to have formerly occupied the territory betwixt the rivers Zered and <arnown. Apparently the same word as (DMWA, p. 48a) \>aymah\ 'widowhood', \>ayyim\ 'widower, widow'; could have allusion to Freemasonic "Son of the Widow".}

p. 15 "In the Athenian festival in honor of Athena, the ... boat, was carried in procession, and on it was hung, in the manner of a sail {is this source of the Old English rune \sigel\ 'sail'?}, the sacred garment of the Goddess, the peplum which no man had lifted." {\Peplos\ ("the embroidered robe" carried in procession at the Pan-athenai) must surely be cognate with \peplid-\ ('wild purslane' Euphorbia peplis) and with Latin \poplus/popolus/populus\ 'people' : Athene's poples (Latin for 'ham of the knee, hough') is the portion of her body emphasized in myth, for, (GM @25.b) god Hephaistos "ejaculated against her thigh, a little above the knee."}

pp. 17-18 The ibis, regarded as the avian form of D.H.WTJ, scribe-god of writing, is likened to the "secretary hawk" : [p. 18] "evidently inviting the stranger to follow in its wake, and when the wayfarer yields it guides him through the intricacies of the forest, almost unerringly, to a bees' nest."

p. 18 "In the story of Melusine the bride is not to be looked on when she is naked. She tells her lover that she will only abide with him so long as he observes this custom ... . This was the law in the mythical land of Naz, and one man who did look on his wife unveiled was transformed into a monster."

"CPs&SF" in C&M, pp. 73-76

[p. 73]

{"The Circassian women live on distant terms with their lords till they become mothers. {73d} ... Similar examples of reserve are reported to be customary among the Fijians. ...

[p. 74]

In Sparta and in Crete, as is well known, the bridegroom was long the victim of a somewhat similar taboo, and was only permitted to seek the company of his wife secretly, and in the dark, like the Iroquois described by Lafitau. ...

[p. 75]

Among the Turkomans, for six months, a year, or two years, a husband is only allowed to visit his wife by stealth." According to this Breton legend, "In Naz a man is never allowed to see the face of his wife till she has borne him a child ... . The inquisitive French husband unveils his wife ... . When the pair return to Naz, the king of that country discovers the offence of the husband, and, by the aid of his magicians, transforms the Frenchman into a monster. ...

[p. 76]

In the well-known myth of Me'lusine, the bride is not to be seen naked."}

p. 20 "Un, meaning in Egyptian to open." {WRONG! The word for 'open' is \WP\, not \WN\.}

Nikaia and the Inventing of the \Stauros


p. 24 [quoted from Gibbon : The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, vol. 1, p. 693] "Arius was banished into one of the remote provinces of Illyricum; his person and his disciples were branded ... with the ... name of Porphyrians".

p. 24, fn. "The Porphyrians were the "Gigantes" or "Giants," but the Romans ... thought the Porphyrians were ... offspring of the angels who married the daughters of men".

p. 30 "Serapis was "the second life of Ptah," the Egyptian god. {Similarly, Dio-nusos is often considered to be the 2nd life of Zagreus.} Hence, as Diodorus Siculus ... says, (I.25), Serapis was a name given to all persons after there death ... ."

The Greek poet, Aratus of Soli, in Cilicia (c. 270 B.C.), describes Centaurus as carrying out a sacrifice to Ara, the altar." {\aratos\ (Ionian \aretos) 'prayed for' or 'prayed against' [cognate with Latin \ara\ 'altar']; \Soloi\ infamous for its Dorian soloikismoi (solecisms) of (Apollonius Dyscolus : On Syntax, 198.8) grammatical syntax. \soloi\ is plural of \solos\ 'mass or lump of iron (used in throwing)'. The Solumoi (who were later renamed "Miluai") slew (GSK:IC2, p. 185) Is-andros son of Bellero-phon. With these MILUai, possibly cf. (JK:PM, s.v. "Miru 2.") "The God of the Dead who collects souls in his cave, Lua-o-Milu. His servants are large lizards who live on the flies in the Underworld." Such lizards may account for lizard-man "SAUROS ... of the Ridge of Sauros near Mount Pholoe" (Th"Sauros"), montane residence of (GM @126.b) kentauros Pholos (who, according to Hyginus, became the constellation : GM @126.g).}

["Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology, Vivian E. Robson, 1923, p. 50."] The adjacent constellation, Centaurus, is traditionally depicted as carrying Lupus, the Wolf, to sacrifice on Ara, the Altar. The Lupercalia was a sacrificial celebration." (CW:"Lupus")} {According to Ploutarkhos, derived from Eu-andros (from Pallantion in Arkadia : DCM, s.v. "Evander 3.", p. 161a), the Lupercalia's "name may, in fact, have been derived from the she wolf ["of the Romulus legend"]." (AMF:L"CL")}
