ICHTHYOS 1.2.1 ETYMO-VESICA. ROOT OF VESICANT TREE

ICHTHYOS 1.2.1 ETYMO-VESICA. ROOT OF VESICANT TREE

The word Vesica being Latin, it only shows up in English etymology as the root of a few English words.

vesicant (n.)
“A blistering agent”… from vesica “a bladder, a blister” (see ventral).

vesicle (n.)
“small, bladder-like structure”… diminutive of vesica “bladder, blister” (see ventral).

vesicular (adj.)
… diminutive of vesica “bladder” (see ventral).

All three words above refer us to the word ventral, which also has Vesica as a root.

ventral (adj.)
1739… “of or pertaining to the belly or stomach,” from Latin venter (genitive ventris) “belly, paunch; stomach, appetite; womb, unborn child,” from PIE *wend-tri- (cognates: Latin vesica”bladder,” Sanskrit vastih [vasti means crazy in Samoan] “bladder,” Old High German wanast, German wanst “paunch, belly”), perhaps from root *udero- “abdomen, womb, stomach” (see uterus).

The meaning ‘bladder’ makes Vesica synonymous with quite a few English words, including cyst.

cyst (n.)
1713, from Modern Latin cystis… from Greek kystis“bladder, pouch.”

So on to bladder.

bladder (n.)
Old English blædre…”(urinary) bladder,” also “blister, pimple,” from Proto-Germ *blaedron… from PIE *bhle- “to blow” (see blast)… from animal bladders used for buoyancy…

A bladder is often called a gall bladder or gall and gall means bile which is what you find in a bladder. That is, urine before it is expelled. The destinction is nessisary as there are others. Such as the swim or air blatter of the fish, as mentioned above, which is used for buoyancy. Although the title Vesica Pisces is more directly related to the urinary bladder of a fish, as the gall bladder of fish is the only known bladder to be shaped like a Vesica Pisces.

That the 153 fish story takes place at the shore of the Sea of Galilee, Peter being one of the fisherman in it, along with the story of Jesus calling Peter and his brother from the same sea, is quite the coincidence. First of all, because gal can mean bile, thus rendering a see of bile. Second is that the root of Galilee is ‘galal’, meaning roll away. It is is well known, that the Greek name Peter means rock or stone.

Tangent note;
What is not recognized is the placement of Jesus naming “Simon Bar Jonah” as ‘Peter’ in Mathew 16:18 (Phi), and stating “upon this rock I will build my church. In other words, the founding of the Papacy and the Entire Christian Church is stamped with the mark of nature, the spiral of existence if you will.

When Peter, the stone, is in the sea of Galilee, one can extract two meanings. One is a gal stone. The other, prophetic to the resurrection, is a stone rolled away. Goliath comes into play also, as he was killed by a stone between the eyes, directing us again to the penial gland. The origin of his name is ‘gallah’, which means uncover, like a stone rolled away from a tomb and as in the uncovered face of Tobis or the uncovering of the film over his eyes. The Hebrew language also has the word (Strong’s H1553) ‘Geliloth’, a clear reference to the Chalice in meaning circles. Now, a look at the etymology of gall.

gall (n.1)
“bile, liver secretion,” Old English galla…”gall, bile,” from Proto-Germ *gallon “bile”… from PIE root *ghel-(2) “to shine“… referring to bright materials and gold…(see glass)…sense of “impudence, boldness”… meaning “embittered spirit, rancor”… from… theory of humors.

“gall (n.2)
“sore on skin caused by rubbing or chafing,” O.E. gealla “painful swelling, sore spot on a horse“… from Latin galla “gall, lump on plant,” originally “oak-gall”… Meaning “bare spot in a field“…”

“gall (n.3)
“excrescence on a plant caused by the deposit of insect eggs,” especially on an oak leaf… from Latin galla “oak-gall”… harvested for use in medicines, inks, dyes.”

“gall (v.)
“to make sore by chafing”… “to have sores, be sore”… Sense of “harass, vex, irritate, chafe the spirit of”…”

Now, why would such a sacred symbol’s name, by popular reference, become, 1 such a disgusting thing, and 2 something most have never seen and could not identify if they did and 3 combine the grotesque with shine and gold?

It’s not as if their are no other manifestations of this shape in nature. The orifices of the body have already been mentioned above. Although there are many more.

Above were a few etymological references to plants and oak, conjuring trees. Knots on tree trunks are often developed in the image of the Vesica.

image

Interestingly enough, tree trunks also find their way into the etymological branches of ‘Vesica’, via several different roots.
1. From the etymology of the word bladder we are prompted to view the word blast.
2. The word bladder has the root meanings of blister,
3. and blow.
4. One of the meanings of ventral is belly.
These four words (blast, blister, blow and belly) all direct the reader to see the word ‘bole’.
It is here, in the roots of the word ‘bole’, where we find the meaning ‘tree trunk’, and quite a bit more.

“bole (n.)
…from Old Norse bolr “tree trunk,” from Proto-Germanic *bulas… from PIE *bhel- (2) “to blow, inflate, swell” (cognates: Greek phyllon “leaf,” phallos “swollen penis;” Latin flos “flower,”florere “to blossom, flourish,” folium “leaf;” Old Prussian balsinis “cushion;” Old Norse belgr “bag, bellows;” Old English bolla “pot, cup, bowl;” Old Irish bolgaim “I swell,” blath “blossom, flower,” bolach “pimple,” bolg “bag;” Breton bolc’h “flax pod;” Serbian buljiti “to stare, be bug-eyed;” Serbo-Croatian blazina “pillow”).”

Yet again, there is much etymological content that could potentially inspire the blowing of chunks. The most prolific meaning in ‘bole’ is the concept of growth and it brings us back to an important quality of ‘Vesica’. That is in it being the geometrical building block of all things.

The verb ‘cushion’ is of interest to note, as it dates back to 1730 and may refer again to the back-side.

The Serbian word ‘blujiti’, meaning stare or be bug-eyed stands out from this etymology. That is interesting on its own as the etymology of the verb ‘stare’ includes, “Old High German storren “to stand out…””
Simultaneously, within the context of the story of Tobias (11:11), the noun’s etymology is much more interesting.

“stare (n.1)
late 14c., “power of sight,” from stare (v.). From c. 1700 as “a fixed gaze.”

The Vesica often appears in a certain spiritual form of art called the mandalla, which comes to mind when reading about the Greek word for almond.

Mandorla, ‘almond’.

almond (n.)
c. 1300, from Old French almande, amande, from Vulgar Latin *amendla, *amandula, from Latin amygdala (plural), from Greek amygdalos “an almond tree… influence of amandus “loveable,”… excrescent -l- perhaps from Spanish almendra “almond”… via confusion with the Arabic definite article al-… Applied to eyes shaped like almonds…”

Amygdala is of specific interest because it is an important part of the brain, and is directly related to the following path of relationships;
gall – horse – hippocampus – pineal – pine – tree – bole – bladder(…bole – blister – bladder.)

image

The pineal gland sits in the center of the vertebrate brain. From an evolutionary perspective the most important exception is the hagfish. The pineal gland is the only part of the brain that does not have a twin. That is, it is not a pair of grey matter organs mirrored on opposite sides of the brain, but a cingular center around which the rest of the brain grows. The shape of the gland has it also commonly associated with the Vesica Pisces and other names for the pineal gland are third eye and third ventricle.

This organ is connected to the hippocampus and amygdala, which both spiral out around it. As if they sprout as trees, from the pineal as their seed.

Two trees sprouting from a single pine seed would be twin pines. Keep that thought in mind, in the back, for the future.

The hippocampus is named after the seahorse for its appearance. The word comes from the name of the, half fish (or dolphin) and half horse, equine that pull Poseidon’s chariot.

Those half dolphin, half horse creatures, called ‘hypocampus’, lead briefly away from ‘mandorla’; raising the opportunity to quickly, yet completely, cover the word ‘Delphos’. One of the seemingly most appropriate, yet least common words used as a title for the Vesica Pisces. ‘Delphos’ translates from Greek as both “womb” and “dolphin.

‘Womb’ can mean belly, bowels, heart or uterus. Quite the paradox.

womb (n.)
Old English wamb, womb “belly, bowels, heart, uterus,” from Proto-Germanic *wambo… …of unknown origin.

Back to the second of the twin pines.
The amygdala is named for its resemblance to an almond. Although the amygdala’s tail gives it more the look of sperm, or sapling, which makes the name amygdalos (almond tree) seem more appropriate.

image

Recall the 173 in the square root of three, the ratio of Vesica Pisces, relate these to the third eye; and finally, the next paragraph begins the etymology of the word tree, within which the first date is 1530. Also, tree comes from treo, resonating with three again.

tree (n.)
Old English treo, treow “tree” (also “timber, wood, beam, log, stake”), from Proto-Germanic *treuwaz- (cognates: Old Frisian tre, Old Saxontrio, Old Norse tre, Gothic triu “tree”), from PIE*drew-o-, from *deru- “oak” (cognates: Sanskrit dru “tree, wood,” daru “wood, log;” Greek drys”oak,” drymos “copse, thicket,” doru “beam, shaft of a spear;” Old Church Slavonic drievo “tree, wood;” Serbian drvo “tree,” drva “wood;” Russian drevo “tree, wood;” Czech drva; Polish drwa”wood;” Lithuanian derva “pine, wood;” Old Irish daur, Welsh derwenoak,” Albanian drusk “oak“). This is from PIE *drew-o-, a suffixed form of the root *deru- “to be firm, solid, steadfast” (see true), with specialized sense “wood, tree” and derivatives referring to objects made of wood.

The widespread use of words originally meaning “oak” in the sense “tree” probably reflects the importance of the oak to ancient Indo-Europeans. … For Dutch boom, German Baum, the usual words for “tree,” see beam (n.). Meaning “framework of a saddle” is from 1530s…”

Etymologies Of The Vesica Pisces.

“Blader of a fish” is the English translation for Vesica Pieces, the ‘household’ Latin name for the symbol. The prefix is ‘vesica’, a Latin word that literally means bladder or blister. There are three somewhat common alternative names, Mandorla (Almond), Delphos (womb or dolphin) and the much forgotten Re (mouth), which will be covered soon.

As shall be demonstrated there are a myriad of other options.

Question is, why these names and why “Vesica Pisces” in particular, and above all others? Why not call it by the less common terms for mouth or the womb? The womb after all is the organ most commonly associated with it, but equally strange is that this association is not for the shape of the womb, but figuratively, for the shape of the orifice it is connected to and the productive quality they hold in common.

The author must remind the reader that the derogatory tone or color of words and meanings within this research arise from the history of linguistics and by no fault of the author.

As stated above the primary asossiation of meaning to this symbol causes the etymology explored to be that of words related to the female pudenda- (external genitals, literally “thing to be ashamed of”). The first of these will take us directly back to the above mentioned work of Carl Jung’s, via the title “(A)Ion”

“Ionian (adj.)
“of Ionia,” the districts of ancient Greece inhabited by the Ionians (including Attica and the north coast of the Peloponnesus, but especially the coastal strip of Asia Minor, including the islands of Samos and Chios). The name (which Herodotus credits to an ancestral Ion, son of Apollo and Creusa) probably is pre-Greek, perhaps related to Sanskrit yoni “womb, vulva,” and a reference to goddess-worshipping people. ”

image
On the cover page of “Aion” is an image of that anthropomorphized, feline Greek god with the body of a man and the head of a lion. The fish, in the story of Tobias attacked from the Tigris – Greek root of ‘tiger’ or, as etymology would have it “possibly from” a word for ‘arrow‘)
These two (Ion and tigris) both lead to the next term, pussy cat.

pussy (n.2)
slang for “female pudenda,” 1879, but probably older; perhaps from Old Norse puss “pocket, pouch” (compare Low German puse “vulva”), but perhaps instead from the cat word (see pussy(n.1)) on notion of “soft, warm, furry thing;” compare French le chat, which also has a double meaning, feline and genital.

A transsexual is usually one who is expected to be a male, but becomes the a female. After which the unwitting victims expect the individual to be female, but are suddenly surprised by the opposite genitalia. Such circumstances are the original definition of a catastrophe.

catastrophe (n.) 
1530s, “reversal of what is expected” (especially a fatal turning point in a drama), from Latin catastropha, from Greek katastrophe “an overturning; a sudden end,” from katastrephein”to overturn, turn down, trample on; to come to an end,” from kata “down” (see cata-) + strephein”turn” (see strophe). Extension to “sudden disaster” is first recorded 1748.

A catastrophe is exactly how man predominantly prophecies the peek for the transition of ages (eons or aions) to play out (The Apocalypse).

The most commonly accepted word for the female pudenda, which one can almost get away with using in general public, is;

“vagina (n.)
“sexual passage of the female from the vulva to the uterus,” …, from specialized use of Latin vagina “…; sheath of an ear of grain, …, from PIE *wag-ina-… From root wag,…, Probably the ancient notion is of a sheath made from a split piece of wood…”

The next two words will reflect the concept of the net, and thereby both above mentioned stories.

vulva (n.)
late 14c.,…, earlier volva “womb, female sexual organ,” perhaps literally “wrapper,” from volvere “to turn, twist, roll, revolve,” also “turn over in the mind,” from PIE root *wel- (3) “to turn, revolve,” with derivatives referring to curved, enclosing objects (see volvox).

box (n.1.)
Old English box “a wooden container,” also the name of a type of shrub, from Late Latin buxis, from Greek pyxis “boxwood box,” from pyxos”box tree,” which is of uncertain origin. See OED entry for discussion. …
Meaning “pigeon-hole at a post office” is from 1832. Meaning “television” is from 1950. Slang meaning “vulva” is attested 17c., according to “Dictionary of American Slang;” modern use seems to date from c.World War II, perhaps originally Australian, on notion of “box of tricks…”

“Silly Rabbit, Trix are fore kids”
image Silly pervert, Chalices are for making babies!

net (n.)
Old English net “netting, network, spider web, mesh used for capturing,” also figuratively, “moral or mental snare or trap,” from Proto-Germanic *natjan (cognates: Old Saxon net, Old Norse, Dutch net, Swedish nät, Old High Germannezzi, German Netz, Gothic nati “net”), originally “something knotted,” from PIE *ned- “to twist, knot” (cognates: Sanskrit nahyati “binds, ties,” Latin nodus “knot,” Old Irish nascim “I bind, oblige”).

Fish Net StalkingsimageA moral or mental snare/trap

net (adj.)
“remaining after deductions,” 1510s, from earlier sense of “trim, elegant, clean, neat” (c. 1300), from Old French net “clean, pure,” from Latinnitere “to shine, look bright, glitter” (see neat). Meaning influenced by Italian netto “remaining after deductions.” As a noun, 1910.

Recall that Tobis went blind when he was unclean, in fact he would not have become so if it weren’t for being defiled. Also his son, Tobias, was cleaning himself when he came upon the fishy cure for his father’s blindness.

In ancient Egypt ‘net’ meant fluidity and ‘netnet’ meant ‘pour’. nether imageAlso, ‘net(h)er’ meant god. This takes the mind to ‘net her’, as in catch her or put fish net stalkings on her legs (feet).

In English ‘nether’ means down or Under (recall the Australian “box of tricks”) and ‘Nut’ was the Egyptian sky goddes.

So ‘nut’ is above and nether is below. As above, so below.

The origin of the English word ‘god’ is from German ‘gott or got‘, derived from PIE ‘gheu’ meaning “that which is called upon” or “pour”. In meaning ‘pour’ it is synonymous with the Egyptian ‘netnet’. The German words ‘gott’ and ‘got also sync with the Italian ‘gatto’ and Spanish ‘gato’, both meaning ‘cat‘.

Constellating all of this may give us a meaning something like ‘god pours down cats (perhaps Vesica Pisces) from the sky’.

The hieroglyph for ‘net(h)er’ (god) appears to be a flag, which of course is something that is seen in the sky.

“flag (v.1)
1540s, “flap about loosely,”…Sense of “go limp, droop, become languid” is first recorded 1610s.”

With the sense of drooping, ‘flag’ revives the notion of ‘nether’ downward. It may also bring one to the concept of impotence, commonly known in males as ED, for which one takes a Viagra, reminiscent of vagina and/or Niagara, a pouring river. A waterfall so high that it appears, from below, to come from the sky, Nut! To nut is the very purpose of Viagra and a condom (which is from Latin ‘condam’ and relates phonetically to condemn, thus Damn) or sheath is used to arrest that flow, to catch the microscopic fish, to net the netnet of the nut.

Now consider the one biblically unforgivable sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit; that spirit which pours from God.

Academically we have the word dam for stopping a flow and Biblically we have Damn for condemn to Hell, a separation from God, gott, nut and nether. Perhaps from the pleasure and reproductive power of intercourse, the fertile power associated with most gods and goddesses. Perhaps the Catholic mantra is true; maybe “every sperm is sacred”.

The Egyptian fluidity of net and pour of netnet, God and gott bring the sign of Aquarius to the forefront of mind. The age following Pisces, a man pouring water from a jug. The damn spoken of above, may then refer to the holding back of the transition to the ‘divinely’ apointed, astrological zeitgeist of the coming time or new eon. That is, to reiterate, to impede the appropriate transitioning from the aspects of Pisces to that of Aquarius. These being a transition from mental trickery and secrets to clarity and disclosure.

THE WALK BACK TO 911 1. NAMES

Inspired by the synchromistic videos by Joe Alexander (barleyhuman11 on YouTube) And Apophania productions on Back To The Future.

Most recently “Back To The Future Predicts 911“.

1. CHARACTER NAMES

Marty McFly is a name of dual polarity. That is two separate sets of opposites.

McFly, believe it or not means peaceful man of dark complexion, though Marty himself is white. When combined with the long version of his first name,
‘MARTIN’, there is only one person in all of fiction and non fiction that could be brought to mind. Namely the American civil rights leader Martin Luther King (1929-1968).

The name Martin is from the Roman name Martinus, which was derived from Martis, the genitive case of the name of the Roman god MARS. Mars, the Roman god of War. So here is the second dichotomy in the name of the main character in Back To The Future. Marty is then a double Yin yang, war and peace, dark and light.

The name Martin’s popularity began in the Christian world with a Saint.
image
Saint Martin of Tours was a 4th-century bishop who is the patron saint of France. According to legend, he came across a cold beggar in the middle of winter so he ripped his cloak in two and gave half of it to the beggar. He was a favourite saint during the Middle Ages, and his name has become common throughout the Christian world.

Split his cloak in two, as is the theme as yet laid out, dark and light. And we will find the cloak is already present in back to the future. But o with ‘martin’ for now.

Other influential, Christians of the name were the first Martin Luther (1483-1546), who began the Protestant Reformation and was the Martin MLK was named after, and five popes (two of them more commonly known as Marinus). Of course there are many more Margins in history including the German philosopher Martin Heidegger (1889-1976), and the American filmmaker Martin Scorsese (1942-).

The latest Martin was a zebra in the animated movie “Madagascar”. Not only does he resonate the same bipolar identity issues as McFly by his black and white stripes, but he makes it conscious via the following quote,

“I don’t know if I’m black with white stripes or white with black stripes”

And Marty Mcfly is not only associated with the Yin Yang via his name, a cartoon character and the historical MLK, but the actor who plays him shares his initials with the recently passed MJ, the “King of Pop”, who wrote a song specifically about, and actually transitioned from, black to white. To top it off the charachter Marty McFly shares initials with a current rap star… A white man in a predominantly black industry, raised in a black culture neighborhood, who writes often in his music about his struggle as such. Namely the great “wigger” himself M&M.

Just to confound it all and, at the same TIME, get BACK TO the names of his associates in back to the FUTURE, it should now be mentioned that Marty’s girlfriend continues the Yin Yang and civil rights thread of syncs.

Jennifer Parker means fair park keeper or parked fair one.

Jennifer – Fair one
Parker – Park keeper.

What does that have to do with the Yin Yang theme?

It is instructive to think of her continual perdicament in the trillogy. She always stays put. like a black woman who became famous for demanding fair treatment for paying equal fares. Rosa Parks to be specific. As fair as a rose. Both parks, both fair, one way or another, while again one is black, the other white.

It is not only Jennifer of Marty’s main two associates in the story, but also, another doctorate like Dr. MLK, Doc Brown, or should it be Dark Brown?

The color brown is usually thought of as dark but the definition of this word is dark yet shining!

Now his first name is Hebrew,
Emmett means truth.

A dark yet shining truth is what we are alerted to by this trilogy through the eyes of apophania. Doc brown holds the truth or as barelyhuman11 put it, “the higher intelligence”. Higher as in towers. Doc is a tower of truth, an original 911 truther. He represents the destruction of the towers in being shot by terrorists. A tower rooted in truth and knowledge. This brings closure to the question of why only the clock tower. Where is its twin? Doctor Emmett Brown is the second tower.

Combining the meaning of his name with that of Marty and Jennifer, we have now a tree of knowledge of good and evil.
image
This leads to the meaning of Doc’s girlfriends name. It gives us clarity amidst muddy water, and robs us of a formerly innocent view of the world around us.

Clara Clayton

Clara means clarity and
Clayton, clay town. After her a ravine is named. At least in the original timeline. The Clayton Ravine, or gully, which means violent mugging (from 1350) or Rushing Water. Rushing water relates us back to the Garden, via its two converging rivers, and the ability to change the future, ie Doc Brown’s Flux, the flow, which looks much like two converging rivers. But it is the violent mugging that will take us to…

Biff Tannen

Biff Tannen is as perfect a name for a villain as any. Tannen is also Hebrew and means serpent, while Biff means hit or strike. So here we have the serpent to go in the tree. And this makes his grandsons name redundant. And his ancestors name informative.

Mad Dog Tannen

First, Biff’s great, great, so on and so forth, grandfather is Mad Dog Tannen. Mad dog serpent? Well if the readers are familiar with “The Sirius Mystery” then they will understand clearly. As in that book the author makes it clear that Sirius, aka The Dog Star, was also know as the serpents tooth. Thus the bite of a mad dog serpent is rendered from the Tannen liniage of name meanings.
But what of Griff?

Griff Tannen

Griff is from Griffin which means hook nosed.

There is actually a mythological snake-griff or griffin snake. But check out the stats, from wiki, on a real snake called the hook nosed snake!
image
“Gyalopion canum Cope, 1860
Ficimia cana – Garman, 1883
Gyalopion canum – Stebbins, 1985

Gyalopion canum, commonly known as theWestern hooknose snake, … It is sometimes referred to as the Chihuahuan [chihuahua=dog] hook-nosed snake …

The Western hooknose snake is a small species, growing to 36.5 cm [365 = time] (14 3⁄8 in) in total length. They are gray or grayish brown in color, with 25-48 dark brown or black blotches down their back,[3] and a cream-colored [fair, light] underside. They have a slightly upturned snout, which gives them their common name.

The smooth dorsal scales are arranged in 17 rows at midbody.[4]

Back to the name Griff…

The name Griff may seem at first thought, to be taken from the Griffin tunnel where Biff and Marty play a game of steal the almanac, metaphorically fighting for the higher intelligence. And Although Grifith means red, and what better color for an antagonistic serpent or Satan, red is also the meaning of the Hebrew ‘Adam’. A deeper look will bring even more light to the meaning of this barer of light resonating character. But first lets fit in;

George Mcfly

George means filler of soil or farmer. This is what Adam (red) and thus man was cursed to do for consuming the forbidden fruit. It is obviously well related to Clayton, and Parker (muddy water and park keaper. George is a dark, peaceful farmer.

Back to Griff again.

Griff can also be used as short for Grifter which also means serpent.

Let’s take a detailed look at words associated with Griff.

griffin (n.) c. 1200 (as a surname), from Old French grifon “a bird of prey,” also “fabulous bird of Greek mythology” (with head and wings of an eagle, body and hind quarters of a lion, believed to inhabit Scythia and guard its gold), named for its hooked beak, from Late Latin gryphus, misspelling of grypus, variant of gryps (genitive grypos) “griffin,” from Greek gryps (genitive grypos) “a griffin or dragon,” literally “curved, hook-nosed” (opposed to simos). 

The very root of the word may well be in the Hebrew ‘cherubim’. The Angelica figures posted on either side of God’s place on the Ark of the covenant.
image
Klein suggests a Semitic source, “through the medium of the Hittites,” and cites Hebrew kerubh “a winged angel,” Akkadian karibu, epithet of the bull-colossus (see cherub). The same or an identical word was used in mid-19c. Louisiana to mean “mulatto” (especially one one-quarter or two-fifths white) and in British India from 1793 to mean “newly arrived European,” probably via notion of “strange hybrid animal”.

grifter (n.) “confidence trickster,” 1906, carnival and circus slang, probably an alteration of grafter (see graft (n.2); also compare grift). Gradually extended to “any non-violent criminal.

graft (v.) late 15c., “insert a shoot from one tree into another,” from graft (n.1). Figurative use by 1530s. Surgical sense by 1868. Related: Grafted; grafting.

Biff creates an offshoot, an alternate timeline for himself, while Griff remains belligerent and oblivious. So too is the so called Griffin from Harry potter whose head is a shoot from one animal inserted into another’s body. He is bolligerent towards strangers who get to close and oblivious to his own looming execution.
image
hippogriff (n.) also hippogryph, 1650s, from French hippogriffe (16c.), from Italian ippogrifo, from Greek hippos “horse” (see equine) + Italian grifo, from Late Latin gryphus “griffin” (see griffin). A creature part griffin, but with body and hind parts in the form of a horse.

This creature has quite a mythological family tree.
From the Sphinx, its likely origin, to the pegasus. And as will be shown later, it is well worth a familiarization.
image

Lorraine Baines

Finally we come to Marty’s mother. With whom he has a very Freudian encounter.

Gained means 1. Bones 2. White 3. Bath.

By now the word white should be self explanatory for the reader, but even this synchromystic researcher/writer has not yet found where the concept of washed white bones fits in exactly.

Perhaps the continuation of this blog will reveal the place for this puzzle piece.

Meanwhile the name Lorain is from the Roman word for victory. It is the same as the meaning of delorean, The victory! That is as far as we will go for now, having finished with the main character names in Back to the Future.

In the next blog the delorean will bring us back to the Griffin via Serpent and believe it or not… Hair!

SOLSTICE SHADOWS 1.0

There appear to be six memory banks of the human psyche. These are the unconscious, subconscious and conscious realms, each divided into individual and collective. Unconscious content is information that has never been conscious, subconscious was conscious, but lies dormant until recalled, and conscious content is information the collective or individual is currently aware of.

The possession of ten toes (more or less)

was subconscious content untill the reading of those words, just now -unless you happen to have been aware of your ten toes as you read it-. The state of awareness of them was brought forth by the words and the meaning behind them to the conscious state. The number of hairs on your head were, are now, and will always be unconscious information, unless one happens to count (have counted) them.

If two or more individuals are reading this together, then we are speaking of a collective psyche, otherwise it is an individual psyche.

But perhaps ought to consider the author’s psyche. Author’s psychic content may be present in black and white or even vibrany colors, but Author himelf is not present.

The vast majority of the world’s population is unconscious

of what is being celebrated in traditions other than, but even in their own particular sect, on and around December 25. As to their own traditions, the majority have in mind (consciousness) only meanings limited to a modern perspective. They do not know the historical meanings of the symbolism in their traditions, therefore that knowledge is unconscious to them.

Often times the faithful will admit that they do not understand their traditions

and they know that many of those traditions come from outside of their belief system or worldview, yet they passively practice them none the less. The meanings of the Traditions may have been changed or forgotten on the collective conscious level -whether by gradual, word of mouth bastardization, plain neglect, or through intentional missdirection- but the original meanings remain either in the individual subconscious or unconscious mind for descendants of those whose held that content consciously.

Where there are an elite few, who retain such knowledg, there is a collective subconscious.

There is no evidence as of yet, of a super collective consciousness, for whom all past and present information is accessible, a God consciousnes one may say, which is often believed in and referred to as the Akashic records. Although, if it exists, it is not likely mankind will ever find a way to prove it so.

Jeremiah 10

2Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Some Christian’s retain the memory of the Christmas Tree as a “heathen” symbol, some of them confuse heathen for pagan and they call the tree a “Pagan” symbol. But one ought to realize that statues or pictures of Jesus, Mary or any saint, a cross or tree, all idols, just the same, are the subject of this scripture.

They were Jewish traditions, the idols of the elohim gods.

Keep in mind that “pagan” means extra theocracy, outside the political influence of oficial doctrine dictation. The establishment was polytheism, monotheism was pagan first.

Pagan is an antonym to sheep of the flock.

when one claims to have a personal relationship with God, that is not reliant on, but independent of a church or religion’s dogma, by definition, we are calling ourselves somewhat pagan.

Symbolism that is employed by the great religious systems of the world are not pagan.

When used acording to doctrine, they are sanctioned by the systems in power.

Take the star of david.

If one titles a hexagram as the “Star of David”, wittingly or not, one is using a revealing terminology. The “Star of David” is a symplified, Hindu canonized, Shri Yantra, the heart chackra. It was probably brought from the Asian collective to the Jewish via the Arabic, who called it Solomon’s seal, fully defined, peace seal. That is, those who delivered the gifts of peace, love and science to the west were oriental alchemist, astrologers; you know, magi.

The magi were literally Pagans, who brought a star of peace, love and science.

The actual gifts of the magi were chemistry, astronomy and algebra with its Sanscrit (Hindu) digits. Most important of all, at the base of all these gifts is both the concept and digit of zero.

The real Magi of mankind were the global collective subconscious in the Orient, smuggling lost knowledge through the desert of time. A living timecapsyle for the roots to scientific advancement, trudging through time till the rest of the collective was ready to break the star seal, unlock the box peace, love and hope in the form of science, and begin an age of technological abundance.

Unpacking this box is no simple matter. Often its contents are abrasive to our old ways of thinking and behaving. It’s been a long journey to where we are. The key so far has been to apply reason to the gifts brought from the East. The civilised collective no longer burns witches for lack of evidence. Slavery and indentured servitude too, have failed the test reason. Although we’re nowhere near done yet. In the end, the majority collective will have to realize that faith is pretending knowledge. They will have to see that to make claims to property based on the dictates of a being which cannot be produced also fails the test of reason and leads to destruction. Though there may be a God, our attempts to speak for it are fatally futile. humans with will have to withhold judgement and belief as to “if God?” and “what God?”,

they will have to be atheists to evolve from divisive make believe.

Atheists who fully participate in the Christmas traditions of the day, often believe in a materialistic consumerism, that may as well be a religion. Especially if that atheist also teaches children to believe in Santa and flying reindeer.

At the very least, they follow what is canonized by the state, which quite often sanctions belief in god.

Even the dollar, being a fiat currency of no true value, is an article of faith,

evidenced by the printed proclamation “In God We Trust” and a belief in its value. Here patriotism can be seen as synonymous with piety. What is religious vs what is pagan is quite a grey matter surrounded by a haze of semantics.

This haze of semantics is the source of global division. The various dogma the faithful live by is glue to its respctive community, but, at best, degreaser to all outsiders. Black Friday is a a kind of ritual expression of our repressed holliday cellebrations of old. The collective subconscious lust of saternalian orgy, bursting out annually. The lawless hoards fighting like dogs for gadgets, for the fool is king at this timtime in much of our ancestral culture.

What are the world’s winter Holliday symbols about? Do they all have one meaning in common? Is there anything reall, tangible or interesting to cellebrate for one who just doesn’t believe? Or is the nonbeliever destined to juggle the bennefits of the season with the pretense to reason for the season? Is there something all religious and nonbelieving folk alike can embrace about the holiday? Is there something that can raise collective awareness and unite people in, love, peace and hope in symbolism and tradition with meaning in truth, something true yet numinous for everyone?

Well here we go. This is where the author is supposed to tell you,

“YES! There is, its HEPNEN!

Its an exciting truth that can change the world.”

Although it would not be a dishonest statement, as there is certainly quite a bit of potential in what will follow, the author lacks any authority or desire to persuade that it is so. Time will tell.

The details disclosed here have been easy to obtain for quite some time. Any one could have laid the entire alignment of the winter solstice out in public view from day one of recorded history, as it has been part of the annual cycle for long over 5k years. The writers of our ancient myths seem to have known of it. Although, instead of laying it out, the great traditions of the world that seem to have known of the alignment have only alluded to its parts through scriptures, traditions and symbolism. The only attempts there have been to illuminate the truth of the winter solstice alignment have still left out the most important part.

So few care to learn the truth. Even fewer care to publish it and of them fewer care to face the shadow head on.

It may or may not be time for the collective conscious to develop a passion for truth and unity, but this author is a reallist, looking at all signs pointing down the same old path of human ignorance. So there is only a desire to be heard by those who can and will have an ear. No expectations of results. Any future is possible. The direction of collective consciousness will determine the impact of any given idea on consciousness.

Be critical, skeptical, open and even agreeable, but please. Please Don’t believe as you read. Question and examine. Be mindful. Your conclusions are yours.

And now weigh the evidence, provided hereafter, for The Asto- Nativity Alignment of the New Year.

NEN

image

Nen is the Egyptian word for Winter Solstice.

Note. The E in NEN is not only an interpretation of vowels, but the application of assumed vowels, where there are no symbols representing vowels in the script, alphabet or hieroglyph.

Just as I will inform hereafter, it is in this way that the word “nen” relates us to the fish symbolism via the Hebrew letter Nun. There are many places in SOLSTICE SHADOWS, where we will find direct references to the fish subject, although I will withhold discussing them, for the most part, leaving the subject of their commonalities to a blog series of its own eventually.

That said, the letter nun in Hebrew and Arabic has also no vowel, but we know the phonetic sound is noon for both. As you likely know, nun is fish in Hebrew. So from the beginning we find a solid root common to both works, namely ICHTHYOS & SOLSTICE SHADOWS. But now we focus on the Winter Solstice.

The concept of the winter solstice is about marking a beginning and end of the annual cycle. Something that has no actual beginning or end. Therefore this idea is in contradiction with actuality. Humans though, have a universal need to force a beginning an end into cycles.

The simple explanation for this is that humans need a common frame of reference. They want to gather and celebrate the cycles of life and they need a common method of determining when to do so. It is not unlike the celebration of a birthday and the mourning of death by one who believes that the human soul is an eternal being. Eternal identifies with the cycle; there can be no actual beginning nor end for either. Birth and death from that perspective should be seen as mundane and redundant as sleeping, eating, drinking and defecating. Though the human being, being the being of opposition the being is always being, celebrates birth, mourns and fears death as much as the observer who views the soul as linear, mortal, and temporary.

The fact that we know not the size of our universe leaves us with no center by which to draw a factual frame of reference. Fear of the unknown being the prevailing mindset, from ancient times on, man has felt need to fabricate a center and soothe his yellow soul with an imaginary frame of reference; until recently man made believe that the center was Earth. In the same way that he evaded his fear of non-existence by imagining his soul to be immortal.

To question the accepted dogma, even a single minute detail in an unattended, dark corner of a belief system, is to risk the collapse of the entire fabrication. A threat more grave than one on the level of national security, call it Empirical security. This is why the Catholic Church resisted changing their view when its members began to discover that the Earth was not the center of the universe, nor is it flat, as they claimed God had told them it was.

Man is so afraid of the unknown that he often cannot admit, even to himself, that he does not know and he will kill to keep his lack of knowledge hidden in dark shadows.

Although, to digress, a frame of reference is a byproduct of perception, and a means to survive. It cannot be avoided. Therefore No harm no foul in the draughting of imaginary lines and placemarks for measuring (judging) time and space.

Astronomy and Astrology are two methods of studying, measuring and judging the character and motion of objects in the sky and documenting there place in the common framework of human perception. The difference between them, which was clear untill quantum physics piped in, was that Astrology viewed the dance of these objects as a mirror to the state of the Earth and psyche of men. “As above, so below.” While astronomy, to this day, predominantly views the cosmos above to be of little relation to the dynamics “below”, other than the laws that govern and atoms that form them. Although, as alluded to above, Quantum Physics has begun to question the assumptions of its Newtonian predecessor. Man now has an aggregate of evidence pointing to links between atoms other than by time and space.

Now the fact of the matter, regardless of any differences, is that both schools of thought are drawing imaginary lines in order to understand the universe and working mostly with cycles, as the vast majority of objects in the sky are caught, bound or possessed in orbit around, and by the gravity of some larger or more massive object. Not one known orbit forms a perfect circle. Instead they are oblong ellipses (ovals). Ovals when observed by themselves, like circles or anything cyclical is eternal and, as previously established, has no actual beginning or end.

As far as most humans are concerned, there is no first and no last object to travel across the sky every 24 hours. Nor is there a first or last day, or point on the horizon from which an object can rise or set respectively, throughout the 365 days of orbit or the 24 hour rotation to signify a start or finish. The concept would not even exist if not for the eye of the beholder, who perceives the numbers of 24 hours and 365 days. None the less, the observer did not invent the numbers of Days in a year, it is a natural fact that any observer will conclude to upon measurement. When an observer puts into perspective the various objects at his judgemental disposal, an order and pattern is unveiled, with perceivable points of start and completion for a cycle. The 24 hour cycle is perceived, by the majority, to begin at first light, sunrise. Although some cultures have viewed sunset as its beginning. It is the two polorized, transitional points, from light to dark and dark to light, existing independent of and a prior to man in a pattern of space and time that obligates hint to give it name and numbers and wonder of its meaning.

The year’s cosmic dance of the Sun and stars is attributed an end and beginning according to the pattern it repeats each time around. The end of a cycle will always be the beginning of the next. The Winter Solstice is the end and beginning of years, celebrated as Christmas or Yule or Hannuka etc. The reasons for all the various names are all the various geographic and cultural perspectives. The more various the perspectives the more various the metaphorical descriptions. An observer on the moon would see the Cycle as a totally different pattern from that of the view from the ground we stand on, just as observers from differing latitudes, landscapes and pre-concieved ideas form different methods for measuring and celebrating the passage of time. While the day is undeniably beginning for one seeing the sun rise, it is undeniably ending for one who simultaneously watches a sunset.

The annual pattern is an orbit of the Earth around the Sun and, whether they know that or not, every observer on Earth has always placed the Sun at the focal point of the mathematical pattern or allegorical story. And although the moon orbits the Earth about once a month and is used by every culture to measure 12 months a year, it is the Sun’s annual relationship to Earth that defines a year as 12 rotations of the moon. Another important note is that 12 lunar cycles do not equal a close enough approximation to a full year for an accurate calandar, there is always a remainder, a fraction of a thirteenth month till the Earth has completed its annual voyage. The planets all wander about far from any annual rhythm, so the stars, being the only observably “fixed” bodies in the sky, give context to the Sun’s yearly motion. Further, being that the Stars can only be viewed at night after sun set, a description of the winter solstice pattern will begin with Sun rise and set, then move through the constellations.

The pattern of the major stars of the winter Solstice runs as follows: Sun rise and set, Orion’s rising, Canis Major, Argo. Orion’s setting, Canis Major, Argo, Sun. On a daiy timeline, because of our planet’s eastward rotation, the Earths eastern horizon is a place mark for rising elements, birth. Earths western horizon is a place mark for a setting body, death. When repeatedly viewed from one location the fixed stars will always rise at the same place in the east and, likewise, set in the west in the same places. As long as one is standing on the same spot.

Depending on the time of year; if an observer Stands in the same spot every day plotting the locations on the Eastern horizon where the Sun is observed rising and the western horizon where the Sun sets, it appears to be moving, each day, North or South along the Eastern horizon and set in oposistion South to North upon setting.

In mid June, the Sun is as far north as it goes along the horizon of the East. This is where we have the longest day, known as the summer solstice. It is the longest period of light in the 24 hour period we call a “day”, out of 365 “days” in the year and the shortest night. From there it begins moving south, reaching as far south as it will rise on December 20th/21st; beginning the three shortest days of the year. From this day toDecember 23rd/24th the Sun appears to stand still as it rises each morning for roughly three days in the same spot; a three day limbo between yearly cycles.

In the following animation each frame is a new day and a view of the Sun rising from December 18th to the 26th.

From here the focus will be on where the Sun Rises in the East from the perspective of the Northern hemisphere, during the Winter Solstice.

ICHTHYOS 1.1 VESICA PISCES. Her Mothership The Challice

ICHTHYOS 1.1 VESICA PISCES. Her Mothership The Challice

The Mother and Building Block Of All Geometry
image

Similar to the shape of an American foot-ball, it looks like four out of any fully functioning human beings nine orifices (including eye sockets). Those biological gateways through which we are born, we see, speak and copulate!

It is the seed, the womb, the symbol of birth, the doorway to life on Earth. It is personified in femanine forms such as Mary or Isis. It is the, conjunction, cuniunctio, tertium comparationis, the individuation; the merger, balance and reconciliation of oposites.

Ladies and gentlemen, Chalices and Phalluses,
The truly wholly, Virgin Mother.

The Vesica Pisces
image

From here on referred to as the Chalice.

The Chalice is the image of the common area of two converging circles. Metaphorically Heaven to Earth and self to Self.
In biology she is the image of unicellular (or cell) division, mitosis, meiosis, karokynesis.

From here add another circle and you have a triquetra.
image

A perfect Chalice is made by circles who’s edges lie on each others radius (center).The ratio of a perfect Chalice is an approximation to the square root of three, which makes the triquetra quite redundant with its three circles and three chalices.

Continuing the pattern of circles eventually manifests the seed of life, the flower of life and the fruit of life. The Chalice might be called the original draught of all things. From the geometry of the Chalice all other geometric shapes can be drawn.

The Penial Chalice In Rumor, Myth and Scripture.

The widely agreed upon rumor that Pythagoras discovered the wonders of the Chalice -i.e. the Chalice is a base for all mathematical symbols (geometry)- and that he named the equation ‘265:153=1.73’ the “Measure of the fish”, may or may not actually be true. Research has resulted in no evidence whatsoever that Pythagoras connected any equation with a near square root of three as its quotient to the measurements of the Chalice. Nor has any evidence surfaced to show that he ever coined the term “Measure of The Fish” at all.

It is not impossible though, as Pythagoras is known to be insufficiently documented for much knowledge of exactly what he may or may not have done or said on various topics.

Nonetheless, it was more likely the infancy Christians who wrote the new testament, fully equipped with Pythagorean geometry, that first discovered the above formula and coined the title thereof. They at least are documented to have had such perspective.

Although rumors are no less important within the context of Syncphany’s study of the fish.

In the lesser known tale Pythagoras is said to have once been attacked by 153 frogs. The other story says that he came upon a wager with a fisherman that if he could number a catch of fish, he could do as he pleased with the lot. Correctly guessing there were 153 fish, Pythagoras instructed the man to release them back into the sea. Though again it is all hearsay.

Here is a little more on “153”

The number 153 is again the number of fish as it appears in the miracle fishing story of Jesus, at the end of the book of John 21:11, along with the encryption of other relevant numbers. This has germinated many theories and debates who’s passions burnt events,
metaphors and symbolisms into history, scripture and dogma. One such etching is in the number 153 becoming representative to many Christians of the term “Fishers of Men.”

image

Here is an example, in a clip that describes the encoding of the geometry of the Chalice in John 21:11, from a book entitled;

The Dimensions of Paradise
by, John Michel
.”

(BEGIN CLIP)
“….He called out that they should cast their net on the right side of the boat. Having done so, they were unable to draw it out for the multitude of fishes in it. John then recognized Jesus and told Simon Peter, who put on his fisher’s coat and jumped into the sea. The other disciples followed him in the boat to the shore, which was about 200 cubits away, dragging the net with the fishes. When Simon Peter drew it to land it was found to be “full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.” The number of Σιμων ὁ Πετρος, Simon Peter, is 1925, so Peter can be represented by a circle with circumference 1925 and diameter 612½ or 612. This is appropriate because 612 is the number of ὁ ποιμην ἀγαθος, the Good Shepherd, and that is the title which Simon Peter inherits when, following the incident of the 153 fishes, he is told three times by Jesus, “Feed my sheep.” Six more circles of the same dimensions are drawn for the six other disciples, and the seven are packed together in the most economical way
image
and placed inside the circular boat, like the coracle of the Celtic saints, the diameter of which is 1224. The disciples are told to cast their net on the right side of the boat. This is done geometrically by placing the compass point on the circumference of the circular boat and drawing an arc of another circle with the same radius, containing a Vesica Piscis (bladder of the fish). The rhombus within it is divided up into sixteen smaller diamond shapes.
image Its width being 612, each of its sixteen divisions has a width of 153. They represent sixteen small fishes making up a greater seventeenth, and here again the number 153 is brought out, for 153 is the sum of the numbers from 1 to 17. The measure around the four sides of the greater rhombus-fish is 2448 or 1224 + 1224 or το δικτυον, the net, plus ἰχθυες, fishes. Thus the net full of 153 fishes is illustrated in number and geometry.
(END CLIP)

The process described above is an objective one. The numbers are taken directly from references encoded together contextually, in the same chapter of the same book and used to draw circles and lines. It is easy to see that this was intentional encryption, by the original writers.

Now lets take a subjective look at Michel’s figure 68.
image
On the left is what, in modern times, is called a seed of life. On the right is a empty net in a Chalice. In the middle is a crescent that is partially hidden by the ‘seed’. If we turn the image 90 degrees counter clockwise, we can view the crescent as a boat and see that, as the 153 fish story goes, there is an empty net above the boat (crescent) and 16 Vesica Pisces underneath.
image
Recall that the geometric draught explained in the clip uses the number of the good shepherd to draw a circle inside another circle which is 7 times larger and represents the boat. A circle, not a crescent, represents the boat. It would appear that John Michel did not intend to depict the scene of net and fish positioned on either side of a boat, which is represented by a crescent. Although he certainly intended for the smaller circles to be the disciples who’s intersecting areas form fish. Yet, we can clearly see that scene being illustrated. We may never know for sure if the ancient writers of the book of John intended it, though it does seem likely.

The number 153 has now been shown to represent the width of the Vesica Pisces. Numbers are more important to theology than most people realize. Gematria, for instance, is an ancient method of relating number and meaning.
It is a Greek and Hebrew practice which gives a numerical value to letters thus words, phrases, paragraphs all the way to entire books.

A little more math…
1³ + 3³ + 5³ = 153

Only one verse in the Bible has the gematria sum of 153. It is Ezra 10:35, that’s right, minus the “0:”, it just happens to be an anagram to 153. All the verse contains are the names of three Hebrew men who are named for having married outside of the Hebrew family.

Note Ezra means ‘help’ (Strong’s 5380).

Ezra 10:35
“Benaiah, Bedeiah, Chelluh.”
What meaning of value could
Possibly be in that?

Translated to English these names mean; Benaiah- God builds, Bedeiah- servant of God, Chelluh- to completion (the End). Put together they can mean, God builds up his servants to the End. This is synonymous with the concept of the vesica Pisces, represented by ‘153’ being the building block of all things.

It just so happens that in Ancient Egyptian the word ‘arq’ (ark) means end and is represented by a fish symbol.
image
And the 153rd verse in the bible is Genesis 6:15 which says,
“And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
That’s 300 X 50 X 30 = 45,000
This could also be taken subjectively and added to 380.

And look at the shape of one contender to the title of “Noah’s Ark”.
image

Note also that the eight human occupants of the Biblical Ark are first named in Genesis 6:18. Or 1 6 18, Phi!

Although nothing significant is yet found within it, it is worthy of mention that the Bahai Faith has an aggregate of 153 proverbs called the “Hidden Words”. Being that the entire scripture is easily obtained in the public domain, the only mystery is why it would be called hidden.
Perhaps it is the hidden words are Vesica Pisces?

There is but one place known to the author where a fishes bladder is directly refered to in scripture anywhere. That is in the Apacraphal book of Tobit named after the main character.

There are two complete versions of the book of Tobit in Greek. A long version and a short one. They call these versions Greek I (GI), the shorter of the two, and Greek II (GII) the longer. Here the text is taken from a paralell translation of both. This one is called NETS (New English Translation of the Septuagint) 19 Tobit, by ALEXANDER A. DI LELLA

From its title this particular translation is subjectively relevant to an article about the fish, because of the acronym  NETS, as in fish nets. More importantly it is objectively appropriate, being that it presents both versions, because the short version often includes relevant information that the longer either contradicts or omits. In order to save the reader time I have Omitted some of the text and summarized in my own narrative. Still, to be more in tune with the important details, I have used the text from GII as a base and where such a case of variance (as described above) presents itself, I have inserted the missing or alternative phrases in parenthesis with the designation GI.

Tobit is a man who loses his sight when sparrow dung covers his eyes with a white film. His son Tobias is sent to collect an inheritance, unwittingly guided by the angel Raphael, who plans to cure Tobit’s blindness with a fishes bladder and exersise a groom killing deamon in Tobias’ future wife, with the heart and liver of the same fish. Only Raphael knows what is to transpire. Including the acquisition of a wife for Tobias.

Tobit was a pius man, always looking for a chance to help the less fortunate men of his race. He  was particularly interested in providing proper burial for deseaced believers, which in the land he had been held captive, was illegal.  He had been in hiding as he was in danger for his disregard for said law. Our text begins in verse 9 of the second chapter after Tobit has gone out in public, at risk to his life, to bury yet another.

“2:9 Then the same night I washed myself and went into my courtyard and slept by the wall of the courtyard (GI because I was defiled), and my face was uncovered because of the heat. 10And I did not know that there were sparrows in the wall above me, and their warm excrement settled into my eyes and brought about white films.”
image

In chapter five Tobis sends his son, guided by Raphael the angel, who they think is Azarias, son of Hananias the great, one of their relatives, to retrieve money that Tobis had left with a friend, so that Tobias could take it as his inheritance. Durring the journey Tobias and the disguised Raphael camped at the Tigris river for a night.
“6:3Then the child went down to wash his feet (GI wash himself) in the Tigris River. And a large fish, leaping up from the water, wanted to swallow the foot of the young man…) (GI swallow the young man)“…and he cried out. 4Then the angel said to the young man, “Take hold of the fish, and hang on!” So the child seized the fish and carried it up onto the land. 5Then the angel said to him, “Rip open the fish, and take out its gall and heart and liver, and put them aside with you, but the entrails throw away. For its gall and heart and liver are useful as medicine.” 6So cutting open the fish, the young man gathered together the gall and heart and liver; then he roasted and ate some of the fish and kept some of it salted.”
Closer to their destination Raphael spoke to Tobias saying,
6:11 “This night we must stay in the home of Ragouelos. Now the man is your relative, and he has a beautifula daughter whose name is Sarra. 12And he has no male son or daughter except Sarra alone, and you are closer to her than all other men, to have her as an inheritance. And it is right for you to have her father’s possessions as an inheritance. Also the girl is sensible and brave and very beautiful, and her father is noble.”
“14 Then in reply Tobias said to Raphael, “Brother Azarias, I heard that she already has been given to seven husbands, and they died in their bridal chamber. On the night when they went in toward her, they would die.”
Raphael:
“17Now when you go into the bridal chamber, take some of the fish’s liver and heart, and put them on the embers of the incense, and the smell will go forth. 18Then the demon will smell it and flee and will never be seen around her any more.”
Tobias follows the lead of the Angel and everything goes as planned. Tobias burns the heart and liver in the bridal chamber…
“3And the odor of the fish became a hin- drance, and the demon fled into the upper parts of Egypt. But Raphael went and bound him there hand and foot and tied him up at once.”
After two weeks of celebration they head home long over due. Tobias with two inheritances instead of one. They came  near to Tobias’ home,
“11:7 Then Raphael said to Tobias, before he had approached his father, “I know that his eyes will be opened. 8Sprinkle the gall of the fish on his eyes, and the medicine will make the white films contract and peel off from his eyes, and your father will look up and see the light.”
“10Then Tobis got up and stumbled on his feet and went out the door of the courtyard. And Tobias went up to him. 11:11Now the gall of the fish was in his hand, and he blew into his eyes and held him and said, “Take courage, father.” Then he lay the medicine on him, and ait workeda.
And he scaled it off with both his hands from the corners of his eyes. Then he fell on his neck, and he wept and said to him, ‘I see you, my child, the light of my eyes!’ “
Again, most of the bolded number, word and phrase significance will be described in later chapters of the ICHTHYOS series, although it is nessisary to explain some of them now.
The word sparrow in 2:10 is translated from the greek word strouthion which means a small bird, sparrow and in the origional hebrew, tsippor means bird. The point here is that it is not nessisarily sparrows that this verse refers to, but birds in general.
The number of husbands of Sara, as stated in verse 6:14, is seven which makes Tobias her 8th husband.

Verse 11:11 is where the miracle of sight for the blind finally takes place. 1111 has become well known to modern eyes as a number of awakening and enlightnment. It can be said that 1111 is a cure for ignorance and blindness, the power of sight, a phrase such we will revisit soon.

The phrase “he blew in his eyes” is interesting becase of the PIE (Proto Indo European) root *bhle-“to blow“, in the etymology of the word bladder. This just before applying the “gall” to Tobis’ eyes.

Also in verse 11:11 are a pair of consecutive typos. Where it should say “it worked” instead it says “ait workeda”. In two ways this is significant.

The word “it” points, once again, to the most significant event in the story. That is the healing of blind eyes via the fish bladder. Since the original text was Hebrew, “ait” is significant because it foreshadows a Hebrew word to be examined later, namely “et” and phoneticaly “ait”  refers us to the number 8. The Greek letter a is a fish shape. We might translate the phrase ” ait workeda” to 8 worked fish!

The next few sections are an effort to cover most of the words relevant to the Fish and Chalice, along with other facts and subjective commentary. This in order to get past the bulk of them, as quickly yet efficiently as possible.

The Introduction
A synoptic study of unconscious syncretism surrounding the archetype of fish.

Is it likely that here, in the end of the age of Pisces, and the dawn of the new age (Aquarius), it might be somehow beneficial to examine the past through the eyes, or understanding, of the symbol (Pisces) that mankind has associated with it?

That is the task of this work, to find out if such perspective might edify us. This entire web site is based on the hypothesis that unconscious syncretism or the meaningful syncing of otherwise foreign thoughts and events does exist, and is meaningful, therefore informative. One need not believe or disbelieve the possibility. The best way to approach this hypothesis, like any other, is to suspend belief and view the facts with an open, yet skeptical, minds eye.

ICHTHYOS may be viewed as a subjectively guided, encyclopedia tour of the fish stories of man, but it is much more. The reader will find each story relating to others in such unlikely, yet meaningful ways, that it may be difficult to see any way around the idea of a hidden hand, of one sort or another, moving events, altering records or even controlling minds. For some, the numinous vibe of it all may necessitate a divine intervention explanation. For others, only an ancient elite class of bloodlines could have orchestrated such a globally cohesive history. No doubt, the new generation of wu thinking fertilized by the incredulous history channel, will chalk it up to alien intervention. A Jungian type thinker will likely conclude that somehow it was all subconsciously and/or unconsciously constelated to be exactly as it is, in conformity with an evolutionary psychological archetype. Perhaps in order to inform the conscious ego of the inner workings behind the veil of consciousness; the depths of the collective mind. Still most skeptics will be unable to see past mere coincidence and find reading any further more than difficult, laborious and shameful even. Any lengthy endurance of this content by these will have the unfortunate result of black and blue foreheads, possibly even frontal lobe damage from continuous face palming.

Those who have succumb to a certainty in their convictions, as to all the big questions, explain it away quickly with a belief in conspiracy, deity, spirits, aliens or even hyper dimensional beings etc. Philip K Dick, for example, might attribute it all to a being from the future whom he named VALIS. Though he was a man who perpetually develouped new theories and almost simultaneously dismissed them.

Contrary to the paranormal, extraordinary or numinous explanations, strong sceptics most often pass these things off as pure chance occurrences with just as fallacious a certainty as the rest. Ironically the same “nay sayers” quite often use an argument that sounds like a paraphrasing of biblical red letters, “If you look for it, you will find it” or “one can find any meaning, as long as one has the will to do so”. The exact quote would be “Seek and you shall find”. The point is not moot, but is confused for a conclusive debunking of the other possibilities.

Counter to the sceptics rational, quantum physics has all but proven that, indeed, the interaction of random potential alone morphs chaos into order, wave to particle, reality to actuality. The interaction of observation, it seems, should all the more influence the results of the interaction. So perhaps, yes, Jesus and skeptic alike, you’re right. If we seek (observe), Incidentally, we will find (manifest). Perhaps not.

To reiterate in a more casual language. The argument of the skeptic is often stated as, “Upon the purchase of a new car, one sees the same make and model more often, because of being aware of it, and though it may seem so, there are not suddenly more of them on the road as the believer supposes.”

But the truth may well be that we are more aware of them and there are suddenly more on the road. The theory of a multiverse is a valid contender amongst relevant scientific theories. Perhaps they were there all along, and the conscious state has merely shifted them into focus. Given one of an infinite number of probabilities in reality, would this not have to be true? When driving off the lot with a new car, -in the same instance where it drops in value- the awareness of it, the observation of the road and its populace increases, causing a fork in the road of perception and perceivable. A new awareness filters in an alternate universe; a world where indeed that make and model is more present in mind and matter. If this is true, then our awareness is like a steering wheel, navigating the map of variable reality. Our current location is the actuality we experience in an infinite reallity of locations.

In any case, we don’t know. Thus far we are incapable of devising experiments to practice in order to reach any reasonable conclusion. Certainty of any kind is premature and unjustified.

Meaning is the foundation of all symbolism, and meaning is a psychological phenomenon, a product of consciousness. It is reasonable then to conclude that the most adequate perspective for making sense of anomalous symbolic alignments is probably that of Jungian Psychology. After all, Carl Jung is the man who coined such terms as ‘collective unconscious’ and ‘synchronicity’, which, for this reason, Syncphany primarily utilizes for understanding. Not for belief or agenda, but as hypothesis. It is not, in other words, dogmatically assumed that this is the correct answer, but made use of as the only model of the principle at hand, that doesn’t take a giant leap of faith or deny any other reasonable possibility. It is built on the collaboration of quantum physics and psychology. So it is that the Jungian system will be examined in parallel with the facts. Not to leave out other explanations, we will examine them all in time.

Ultimately we are confined, by reason and our lack of knowledge, to reserve certainty and, for the time being, simply regard this work as an art form. So, pareidolia, apophenia or what ever it may be, relax the argumentation and enjoy the beauty of the patterns to follow.

Interestingly enough, this author did not know of it until well into the research and writing of ICHTHYOS, but Jung himself did a marginally similar study of the fish symbol in his book ‘Aion‘. (See C.G. Jung’s collected works 9-11.) Jung himself had some personal fish constellating synchronistic events, which will be covered later in ICHTHYOS.

The title ‘ICHTHYOS‘ is a play on two Latin words and their Greek root words.
1. Ichthyology, Latin for the study of Ichthys, Greek for fish.
2. Theology, Latin for the study of theo, Greek for god.

‘Theo’ is homophonically embedded into Ichthyology by “coincidence”. Also, by “coincidence”, ‘theo’ is spelled out within ‘ichthyology’, but with a ‘Y’ in place of the ‘E’.

The sole or primary gods in several belief systems (Christianity included) are either half fish, all fish or associated with fish.

So, if one were inclined to coin a word for the study of belief in fish related god(s), ‘ichthyology’ (or ichtheology) would be just as, if not more appropriate, as ‘ichthyology’ is in standing for the zoological study of fish.

It could be argued that the zoological term should be something like ‘ichthology’ to eliminate the homophone and nearly matched spelling of ‘theo’.

Although since the word ‘ichthyology’ is, according to dictionaries, a Latin word, while it’s root, ‘ichthys’, is Greek, perhaps the Latin term for fish, ‘pisces’ would have been a more suitable root. In such a case the word would be something like, ‘pisceology’. The problem there would be the similarity to the existing word piscatology (where did that ‘AT‘ come from?), which sounds like a study of urinating cats, but is the study of the art of fishing. If the coiner(s) were so bothered by such similarities, the word also could have branched from English and used fish-ology or from the root of ‘fish’ to sprout the word fisk-ology. Any of these would have avoided the inevitable confusion with a study such as this.

By the way, for English word coiners who take issue with and avoid similarities in words with completely different definitions, their problem there shows how wiser than most they’re.

Unfortunately a humble digression is in order. Despite this, and Carl Jung’s work, the study of fish related belief systems is not and has not been ‘a thing’, while ‘ichtheology’, as ‘a thing’, goes all the way back to the 1640’s. Even though somehow ‘-ology’ is attested only as early as 1800. Yet again, martyrology is the earliest ‘-ology’ word, on record as early as the 1590’s.

Go figure, it’s all rather fishy. Leave it to the ‘professionals, those good old academia nuts. Perhaps the maylay that follows is ridiculous, but it is curious. Would the study of the suffix ‘-ology’, or the study of the study of things, be called -ologyology?

“-ology
word-forming element indicating “branch of knowledge, science,” now the usual form of -logy. Originally used c. 1800 in nonce formations (commonsensology, etc.)…

martyrology (n.)
1590s, a native formation from martyr (n.) + -ology….

ichthyology (n.)
1640s,

Modern Latin, from Greek ikhthys “fish” + -ology.”

Here the concept of a collective consciousness is being examined. Any thought that exists in large numbers of minds falls within the lines of collective consciousness.
Therefore, in this work variances, typos/errors, rumors and lies are all relevant parts of the puzzle we will be examining.

In order to understand the fish symbol, One must first understand where it originates. The root of the Ichthys is in The Vesica Pisces, and the astrological sign of Pisces rules the feet. Consequently it is a logical place to start, at the foot, as the Vesica Pisces serves as an introduction to ICHTHYOS.
