COSMIC POETRY of the ancient word
Every culture has its ancient relics. The Jews have their Ark of the Covenant from their time in Egypt, and the stories of Adam, Eve, and Noah from Sabaean-Harranian and Chaldean culture. Memorabilia from Athena, the Amazons, and from the lost island of Atlantis was preserved in Troy until the fall of that city whereupon this treasury was transported to Rome (safeguarded by the Pontiffs) under the name of "the Palladium". The Egyptians and the Atlantic Greeks preserved the myths of the Generations of the ancient gods. Every culture cherishes and presents their heritage linking them to a more ancient culture -and it is the pride of all nations that they preserve the "most ancient word of truth and tradition".
One of the explanations about the Chalice of the Holy Grail is that it is the inverted cup of the heavens and stars that we see every night. Mexica-Maya-Andean tradition holds that the universe transfers energy, light, and spirit to our Milky Way galaxy which in turn transfers it on to our Sun and solar system to bring life to the Earth. In this sense the universe is a grail cup which dispenses the life blood and spirit of the Creator to us on Earth.
An ancient Atlantic myth holds that the Golden Apples of the Hesperides on the Canary Islands were in fact a reference to the planets of the solar system which receive their golden light from the Sun. The proto-cosmologers whose names were Ocean [Heavenly Ocean = Milky Way], Night, Uranus (Heaven), and later Atlas (the astronomer in Morocco) were declared guardians of the Golden Apples -that is the guardians of the secrets of the universe.
Emperors and great kings and queens were portrayed holding the globe or "the Earth apple" in their royal portraits as a symbol of their rule and guardianship over the Earth as the "earth-holder". This power and divine sanction (the Divine Right of Kings) carried with it many responsibilities such as upholding the laws, harmony, and justice of the cosmos.
The Persian Astronomer-Poet Omar Khayyam writes in the Rubiat (134, 143):
A bowl inverted is the sky,
'neath which wise men like captives lie
...In wine and cup your heaven make.
[The mystical meanings of Sufis' poetry presents the following equations: Rose = knowledge of God, Wine = the love of God, Traveler = who treads the path of love (God), Tavern = the world's meeting place, Intoxication = outward signs of love]
The Oracle at Delphi & other cosmological sayings
In response to an enquiry by Croesus, the Oracle of the god Apollo sung:
I can count the sands (stars), and I can measure the oceans (the universe).
I have ears for the silent, and I perceive what the dumb man is saying.
Lo, my sense is struck with the meat of a tortoise boiling now in a cauldron with that of a lamb.
Brass is the cover above, and brass is the vessel beneath
A saying by the god Thoth, later used by the Pythoness of Delphi
(There is much symbolic language contained in this famous speech: sands = stars, the silent and dumb = God, turtle = Earth in the cosmos, Lamb = galactic epoch of Aries)
St. John, Revelation 22:16, I Jesus have sent my angel [angelus, messenger, planet] to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (The Star of David is the hexagram star which is the pattern of the planet Mercury in the sky as seen from Earth in relation to the Sun. The bright morning star is Venus)
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are my ways your ways says the Lord, for as high as the heavens are above the Earth, are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts higher than your thoughts...So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
-Isaiah 55:8-11. (Quetzalcoatl and other American gods create the world through their words -which they also use as weapons of combat)
The Supreme Mystery: no God, but God; no part without whole; no reflection without source (negation and affirmation formula -Islamic Patterns by Critchlow). Also:It is said in the Quran (ii. 256), “They comprehend not aught of His Knowledge but of what He pleases.” It was so destined by the command and wisdom of God the All-High that there should be nine spheres, twelve constellations of the zodiac; seven “fathers” (planets), four “mothers” (elements), and three kingdoms of nature (animal, vegetable, mineral). The universal Soul or Mind keeps all these spheres in constant motion.
(the early Greek philosophers such as Anaxagoras, Heraclitus, and Empedocles all speak about the universe as Mind; and the constant movement, metamorphosis, and change of the cycling elements)
The Egyptian god of the Universe proclaims, "I have ejaculated my own seed which I have consumed, and thereby I defecated Shu and I urinated Tefnut." While this seems rather gross to our understanding, the Egyptians have found a way that an anthropomorphic, human bodied-Creator god, can create elements of the universe out of himself. Versions of the name "Tefnut" call her "the spittle of Nut", the sky-goddess.
Astronomical Numbers in Ancient Ireland
Book of Fenagh (The Stationary Office. 1939. Dublin, Ireland. p.14-15). The following note penned 1688 AD appears in the margin of the ancient Mss., "Eightscore cakes, nine times, was Caillin's feast, fact without falsehood. Three persons to each cake of these, of the band of Celebration -chanting, viz. : 1,440 cakes [x 3 = 4,320]; and the usual number of church people with Caillin was 4,320 men, together with all other guests who might come besides, and servants and others." [A sacred hexagon divides the precession of the vernal equinoxes in 4,320 years (25,920 divided by 6 = 4,320). The Great Pyramid of Giza is 1/43,200 the size of the Earth]. Following this marginalia the text continues, "Not less also did the Angel manifest to him, at the command of Christ, every king who would come after him for ever over Ireland." The text then tells of Cesair (granddaughter of Noah) + 50 women + 3 men = 54 total x 2 = 108 x 2 = 216 = 6 x 6 x 6, the holy sexagesimal number.
Ireland's Ancient Schools and Scholars (Bishop Dr. J. Healy. 1893. M.B. Gill & Sons. Dublin. p. 466), "Great numbers of saints and monks from all parts of Ireland were soon attracted to Kilcooney by the fame of its learned and holy founder (St. Cuanna). In fact we are told that on one occasion no less than 1,746 of these holy men assembled in conference in a beautiful meadow near the church, and there entered into a league of holy friendship with each other -surely a beautiful spectacle before angels and men in that rude and barbarous age. [half the diameter of the Moon = 1080 + 666 = 1,746. John Michell says that 666 is a number belonging to the Sun, while 1080 is a number associated with the Moon]. St. Cuanna replaced his deceased brother, St. Carthach, at Lismore which had become the premier university in all of Europe at this time. Lismore is associated with the rise of the British Empire, the British aristocracy, and the Secret College at Oxford instituted by Newton and Boyle.
The Five Extra Days of the Year
Plutarch in his work Isis and Osiris tells that Rhea lay with Cronus but was observed by the Helios the Sun who pronounced that the fruit of their union would not be allowed to be born in any month of the year. Hermes had also lain with the goddess and loved her -and he visited Selene the Moon goddess and challenged her to a board-game in which he won 1/72 of the year from her (360 divided by 72 = 5 days). On these five extra days to the year the five new gods were born by Rhea. Osiris and Harueris came from Helios. Isis came from Hermes. Typhon and Nephthys were fathered by Cronus. [Such is the beautiful Egyptian tale told about gods and the correct length of the year].
Coyolxauhqui and Coatlique Goddesses of the Milky Way
The story of the overthrow and replacement of Coyolxauhqui is recorded in El Templo Mayor De Tenochtitlan en la Obra de Fray Diego Duran (p. 69):
One day Coatlique was sweeping the temple, when a ball of feathers magically appeared and fell from the sky. Coatlique put the ball of feathers underneath the folds of her petticoat, but afterwards could not find it. Thus a magical union was consummated between the ball-of-feathers and Coatlique.
The 400 stars ask their pregnant mother, Coatlique, who has put you in this condition? Their mother could not give them an answer. Then Coyolxauhqui tells the 400 major stars of the sky that they must kill their mother who has committed this infamy. Before they can attack
her, she gives birth to Huitzilopochtli who is born as a fully-armed mature warrior. He defends his mother against Coyolxauhqui and the 400 stars; kills and cuts off her head, arms, and legs—and throws Coyolxauhqui down the pyramid-temple staircase to her death.
This story is about the changeover from one epoch of the cycle of the Milky Way to a new epoch. One may notice that the story of Athena resembles this tale -as Athena was also born from the head (Aries) of Zeus fully-armed and ready to go. Coyolxauhqui is the ancient goddess of the time period of Pisces which is now replaced by Aries in the cosmic cycle of the Milky Way. Coatlique is portrayed as the Great Serpent of the Milky Way in Mexican art.
The Bible calls Noah the Eighth person of God. This is eight houses from Gemini, the house of Adam (Peter II:2.5).
