Egyptian and Cretan Labyrinths ~ Labrys ~ DNA ~ String Theory ~ I Ching ~ Swastika

UPDATE September 27th, 2015

Update to most recent update … something caught my eye regarding the Hagia Triada sarcophagus as I dug deeper.

left – Hagia Triada sarcophagus
right – the Unfinished Obelisk

The Hagia Triada sarcophagus is a late Bronze Age 137 cm-long limestone sarcophagus.

We can place that beside the 137 meter Noah’s Ark and the NE corner of the Great Pyramid apex that is also just over 137 meters high alongside what would have been the world’s longest obelisk at 137 feet.

All of the above are all significant markers I would think?

UPDATE September 12, 2015

image found on Peter Aleff’s website
note the libations being poured into a ‘grail’ placed between two pillars
each pillar is crowned with what appears to be four blades to each double axe
perhaps the flat perspective does not reveal another axis?

Yesterday was the anniversary of 911 and I was wondering what coincidence I would tune into.

It was a good one, which requires me to introduce the work of Peter Aleff and his creation the Phaistos Game based on one of the best interpretations of the Phaistos disk.

His inner child saw something, and so does mine, as I have pointed out in the past, but but butt when Peter mentioned that the word labyrinth and double axe are essentially one and the same [something I had missed or forgotten] … the wheels started spinning.

  • The Lydian word for “ax” is “labrys”, as related by Plutarch. The word “labyrinth”, derived from the word “labrys”, was used by the ancient Greeks to describe the palaces in Crete, such as Knossos, and also referred to the “double-ax” symbol represented by the piece offered here.
  • The symbol of the “double-ax” also always accompanies goddesses, and it seems that it was also the Minoan symbol of the beginning of the creation.
  • This also explains why this piece is votive, and was offered in tombs and sacred places.
  • It is also believed that this type of power piece served as a standard in religious shrines and temples. See F. Schachermeyer in “Die Minoische Kultur des Alten Kreta”, 1990, pp. 161, 237, and 238.; and W.H.D. Rouse, “The Double Axe and the Labyrinth, The Journal of Hellenis Studies 21”, 1901.; and John Chadwick, “The Mycenaean World”, 1976.

The Labyrinth and the Double Axe

~end of UPDATE~

UPDATE August 9th 2014

The recovery continues.
How do we link the double labrys or double ax to the calendar?

Dr. Jack Dempsey has accomplished this task.
Continue reading.

Labrys wheel Later Minoan vessel lid

Now, look at this example of Labrys in its most high-ceremonial “doubled” form.

Count the points from left to right including the central one, and we see five lunar phases with Full Moon at the center. Count the lower points and we see four of them (the solar years) that double into a Great Year with the turning of the 4-year calendar and Labyrs itself.

Other features you can see suggest aspects of all three Minoan sacred beasts (Snake, Bull and Lion) as well as the mystical fourth one, Gryphon, guardian and guide of The Dead beyond “The Door” to the universe—which is at once the sun, the moon and the Pole Star.

I find it amazing that scholars refuse to link the Snake Bull Lion plus the mystical Gryphon to the four archetypes found on display in the tarot on Card X the Wheel of Fortune or Card XXI the World. (the code I extracted  in around 2005, the numbers 11, 2, 5, 8  would be my guide for quite a few years until around 2010 I realized I could convert 11, 8, 2, 5, digit for digit for a new code 1, 3, 7, and 6.

To prove that an analogy is indeed viable … of the four evangelists which one would be considered the ‘mystical’ one?
That would be the St. John who wrote the gospel associated with the eagle traditionally.
And would the Man be then equated with the snake?
Thus we have a match between the four Minoan sacred beasts and the four gospels represented by the traditional associations.

11 Man = Snake
8 Eagle = Gryphon
5 Lion = Lion
2 Bull = Ox

But as the reader can see I have added other IDEAS that have been recovered to this template.
The series of numbers 11, 2, 3, 5, with the addition of the number 3 (a Freemason cipher) reveals another code.
A code that is known as a FIB which helps conceal the I37 LIEs.

Yes the Wheel of Fortune plus the Freemason cipher 3 (linked to the letter gimel) reveals the Fibonacci code 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8.
And as ‘we the sheeple’ waking up in the here and now know this is in fact a code that nature puts on display for all to see in plain sight … IF you stop long enough to smell the Rosicrucian rose or gaze into the patterns found in a sunflower which coincidentally seems to rotate with the sun as it passes overhead … (but there are no coincidences, of that I am now convinced)

But far more exciting for little ole me, under the guidance of big ME was what emerged one day as I was doodling with my new code which had evolved to 137-69.
You see I had already recovered the code 137-9 PRIOR to recovering the 137-6 code via the Man, the Eagle, the Lion, the Ox. (these are bIbLE approved)
But the 137-9 code was attributed to Mesoamerica and the 137-6 code had been given birth in Mesopotamia.

On Card XXI the World card we see the numbers 28, 21, 16, 24, beside the Man/1, the Eagle/3, the Lion/7, the Ox/6 respectively they were also attributed to the four evangelists St. Matthew, St. John, St. Mark, St. Luke.
The numbers were all reduced to a single digit under the instruction of Pythagoras who is assisting us in this recovery process, taking us back to simpler times.
i.e. 28 = 1 (2+8=10  >> 1+0=1)

The 6 and 9 appeared to be ‘polarized’ and sharing in a rotational symmetry so I merged the two codes in one 13769 or 13796.
As I mentioned I was doodling with the numbers converting them into letters and the word bIbLE and then 6I6LE or 379I9 if rotated 180 degrees.

Anyway that was years ago before I realized what I had in fact ‘recovered’ after these many years of placing the swastika into the ‘mind’s eye’.
Essentially I have been ‘meditating’ on the swastika since about 2004-5.
Full time 24/7/365 since I retired on July 31, 2007.
A date which I later realized anticipated why I was retiring.

I retired on July 31, 2007 or 731,9 (2+7) and a magical 7 years later using the 1379 code assisting me in my evolving hypothesis linking the 2 swastikas to the 2 b-mode gravity waves announced to the public on March 17th of this year.
Yes March 17 can be converted to 3/17 or 137.

In other words, the idea that the swastika along with the cross and circle are fundamental to an intelligence operating behind the scenes akin to an Intelligent Design requiring a consciousness that must be linked to a designer is where I AM is at today.

Specifically showing ideas anticipating the reunification of science with religion by ilustrating links between the birth of our asymmetrical brain, our asymmetrical hearts, asymmetrical matter and anti-matter, asymmetrical DNA helix, the spiral, the vortex, plus all other asymmetrical building blocks we use to build our homes, temples, and castles (using prime numbers yin and yang) in a place identified as space-time plus motion.

What else is there?

The Holy Grail …

The evolution of consciousness and along with it, recognizing that the beneficient swastika is a tool bequeathed us by our benefactor.
Billions have in fact been served since 10,000 BC by the gifts the blessed architecture that the swastika in fact can be shown to provide.

Simply by introducing into a discussion the questions which is more important to human survival the hand ax or the wheel, and can we show profound connections to the swastika and finally can we link the swastika to the inventions of the wheel and the first indication modern man had left his primate cousins by becoming a bona-fide tool maker?

Who invented the wheel and hand ax we will never ever know, but by following archetypal clues like the cross and the circle placed into motion, the path left by the wake of our ancestral consciousness becomes clear as night and day.

Notice also the pattern of our journey through the labyrinth of the Calendar.

When we learn to follow and “leap” at places in the fresco border, like the man leaping bull between female helpers, we must leap from one corner to another as a year turns.

When “Year 1” of a Great Year ends we find ourselves on the orange crescent at the bottom of the right vertical. There, we turn around, as in a labyrinth, and begin again having “doubled” or reversed our direction.

In two years, the leaps inscribe an X—a five-point form called quincunx common on Minoan pottery and seals, the shape of Labrys at the heart of The Calendar Fresco.

Calendar House – Ancient Lights

The Calender House ceiling tile, i.e. the rosette surrounded by four double labyrs is another fine example of the SEED pattern, or what science has identified as the blue b-mode gravity wave (below image on left), and Jain science has incorporated the same basic idea into their cosmology too (below image on right).

Rene Schwaller de Lubicz called this geometric necessity the Master Builder’s Grid.
I call it a necessity because of its connection to the 90 degree right triangle, gravity, and polarized light.

UPDATE September 10th 2013

These next two updates do not surprise me in the least bit.
They are fulfilling the prediction that I made years ago suggesting that science would one day catch up to what the swastika means on each and every level of a multi-dimensional universe.
Evidence of the swastika can be found on every level of ‘scaling’.

More evidence linking the evolution of the swastika to the birth of consciousness:

Language and Tool-Making Skills Evolved at the Same Time

Sep. 3, 2013 — Research by the University of Liverpool has found that the same brain activity is used for language production and making complex tools, supporting the theory that they evolved at the same time.

Researchers from the University tested the brain activity of 10 expert stone tool makers (flint knappers) as they undertook a stone tool-making task and a standard language test.

Brain blood flow activity measured

They measured the brain blood flow activity of the participants as they performed both tasks using functional Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound (fTCD), commonly used in clinical settings to test patients’ language functions after brain damage or before surgery.

The researchers found that brain patterns for both tasks correlated, suggesting that they both use the same area of the brain. Language and stone tool-making are considered to be unique features of humankind that evolved over millions of years.

The Origins of Language and Right-handedness

Archaeologists have long been preoccupied with the theoretical linkage between two features of humanity: language and right-handedness. The current view is that they evolved together, but the exact nature of this relation is still unknown. In archaeological and human origins research, it remains hypothetical. Since the last 150 years many ideas about the links between language and laterality have been proposed from other disciplines. They have primarily focused on the brain, but other areas such as primatology, developmental psychology, and ethnography have recently contributed. Interestingly, hardly any of these proposals have been systematically tested with the archaeological or fossil records.

Despite directly referring to human evolution, the research is often disconnected from archaeology.

And then there are freelance philosopher kings like myself trying to put together the pieces.

labrys, πέλεκυς, bipennis, double-headed axe

A labrys is a double-headed axe used for carpentry, military and religious (connected with bull sacrifices) purposes. There is speculation that the word labyrinth, the maze in which the mythological minotaur lived, is etymologically connected to labrys.
The different shapes of the Bronze Age Minoan labrys probably corresponded with its distinct functions. Unlike a modern, two-headed hammer, the shape of the labrys is symmetrical.
Sometimes the blade is curved; sometimes straight.

Interesting to note that the labrys is currently used as a symbol by lesbians.

Here is yet another APPLICATION we can add to that growing list of ‘APPS’ for the swastika, an application that addresses ‘human origins’.

“For a million years the sound of making handaxes provided the percussion of everyday life. Anyone choosing a hundred objects to tell a history of the world would have to include a handaxe.”
-Neil MacGregor

Let me provide a few more quotes by Neil MacGregor who is director of the British Museum and his book A History of the World in 100 Objects was part of a BBC Radio 4 program.

The first quote is about the oldest tool attributed to human consciousness, the chopping tool and the remaining quotes are referring to the ‘handaxe.

The human brain then carries on evolving steadily over thousands of years. And what’s really interesting, is that our brain starts to become asymmetrical as it gets to grips with a whole range of different functions – logic, language, the co-ordinated movement needed for tool-making, imagination and creative thought – quite unlike the ape’s brain, which remains smaller and symmetrical. So what we’re looking at in this chopping tool is the moment at which we became distinctly smarter and with an impulse not just to make things, but to imagine how we could make things ‘better’.

And once they’d been invented, if you want to use that word, they just never changed the design … and I think that is the ultimate compliment to the design of a superb tool.’
It looks pretty straightforward, but in fact a handaxe is extremely tricky to make and,

for over a million years, it was literally the cutting edge of technology.

It accompanied our ancestors through half of their history, and was the main reason they spread first across Africa and then across the world.

For a million years the sound of making handaxes provided the percussion of everyday life. Anyone choosing a hundred objects to tell a history of the world would have to include a handaxe.
A handaxe like this was the Swiss Army knife of the Stone Age – an essential piece of technology with multiple uses.

But this handaxe may contain the evidence of something even more remarkable. Does this chipped stone tool hold the secret of speech? Was it in making things like this that we learned how to talk to one another?

Recently scientists have looked at what happens neurologically when a stone tool is being made. 

They have used modern hospital scanners to see which bits of the brain are activated as knappers work their stone. Surprisingly, the areas of the modern brain that you use when you are making a handaxe overlap considerably with those you use when you speak. It now seems very likely that if you can shape a stone you can shape a sentence.

So, 1.2 million years ago, where are we? We can make tools like our handaxe, that help us control our environment and in fact transform it – the handaxe gives us not just better food, but can also skin animals for clothing and strip branches for fire or shelter. Not only this; we can now talk to each other and we can imagine something that isn’t already in front of us. What next? The handaxe is about to accompany us on a huge journey; because with all these skills, we’re no longer tied to our immediate environment. If we need to – even if we just want to – we can move.
Travel is possible, maybe even desirable, and we can move beyond the warm savannahs of Africa and survive, perhaps even flourish, in a colder climate. The handaxe is our passport to the rest of the world, and in the study collections of the British Museum you can find handaxes from all over Africa – Nigeria, South Africa, Libya – but also from Israel and India, Spain and Korea – even from a gravel pit near Heathrow airport.

The stone handaxe was made essentially in the same way and in the same shape for over a million years, and it must be the most successful piece of human technology in human history. But is there one last secret in the stone?
Our handaxe is just a bit too large to use easily.
Why would you make it like that?

I showed it to an expert in ergonomic design, the inventor Sir James Dyson:

So what you say?

So it is easy to connect the swastika as the seal for the Buddha’s heART.
Did you know that the QaBaLaH associates the swastika with the sephiroth called Kether which is associated with the crown, the point, and the point in the circle?

Thus it is very easy to show how the swastika along its evolutionary path was connected to STELLAR (northern circumpolar stars), LUNAR (moon), and SOLAR (sun) CULTures too.

So all I need to do now is show the profound associations between the handaxe and the swastika to our evolving consciousness, plus lets not forget maybe the chiral and asymmetrical swastika had a chiral asymmetrical hidden hand in the development of speech and language!

Unraveling Roman mosaic meander patterns:

A simple algorithm for their generation

Chedworth swastika meander pattern

Abstract:

The analysis reveals that the intricate swastika meander pattern found on the Chedworth mosaic, consisting of four closed curves, could have been easily constructed using a very simple hypothesized algorithm.

The algorithm also explains the design of Roman and Greek swastika meanders found throughout the Roman Empire.

Connections are indicated between these meanders and the sona traditional art of Angola as well as the kolam traditional art of Tamil South India. Previously Gerdes [10] provided a comprehensive comparative analysis of sona drawings with designs from Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Vanuatu Islands and Celtic knots.

We may now add Greek and Roman mosaics to the meander family. The analysis and algorithm described in the following have applications to the classification of existing geometric mosaic patterns [19], [30] the design of new patterns [18], and the reconstruction of mosaics that have been partially destroyed by wars or earthquakes.

GNoSiS found in GNoSSoS

The labyrinth, the mitos, and the Minotaur ceased to be fanciful myths early in the fifth century BC when the Athenians promoted Theseus from legendary hero to historical figure. We see him slaying the bull-headed man dragged from the world of meander patterns in late Archaic art, but by the fifth century BC, the intricate pattern became a building. The city of Knossos began to mint coins around this time, and the earliest shows the Minotaur on the obverse and a labyrinthine tetragramma/swastika with a star or sun motif in the center on the reverse. Over time, the tetragamma/swastika gave way to the maze pattern and a human or bovine head replaced the central star.

Whoa am I suggesting that there could be a possible connection between Electro Magnetism and the swastika that the ancients were aware of, in fact they were conscious of the symbols they were using to convey certain ideas?
Yes clearly this has been documented as the evidence illustrates:

Neither the Cretan nor Egyptian labyrinth has been found as of this date – November 2012.
Various locations have been suggested for both, but conclusive evidence as obvious as the Great Pyramids, something we can see, touch, and feel is still forthcoming…if it ever does.
What if these labyrinths were metaphysical allegory?

I suspect like the missing apex of the Great Pyramid, or the missing corner of the Hopi Prophecy tablet, the mythical labyrinths attested to by only a handful of writers might have been more of a figment of the imagination than real.

To create a rELIgion you first need to create mystery. Without a mystery you have no rELIgion.

What is GNOSIS?

wiki source:

Gnosis is the common Greek noun for knowledge (in the nominative case γνῶσις f.). In the context of the English language gnosis generally refers to the word’s meaning within the spheres of Christian mysticism, Mystery religions and Gnosticism where it signifies a ‘spiritual knowledge’ or religion of knowledge, in the sense of mystical enlightenment or ‘insight’. Gnosis taught a deliverance of man from the constraints of earthly existence though ‘insight’ into an essential relationship, as soul or spirit, with a supra mundane place of freedom.

I am only interested in the consonants in the word GNoSiS.
Because then we have an nice comparison for the word GeNeSiS.
And continuing with this line of thinking I was rather pleased to see a website where we can link a GeNeSiS, an idEA based on GNoSiS to a place called GNoSSoS which today is known as KNoSSoS.However is my thinking whacked or have I managed to hone in on an idEA whose time has come, yesterday?What did I find while researching GNoSSoS vs. KNoSSoS?
Here is the site I was lead to.
And here-ye here-ye is what I found.
In the course of their education Vergilius gave his apprentices Gnômai: which is Greek for proverbs or sentences (proverba, sententiae), which he said would help when they were are their own.
What he did not tell them was that by learning these sentences and repeating them, they were calling on spirits (daemones), the Gnomai, who would come to their aid, for each Gnômê is a female spirit of wisdom.
They are said to have come from Gnossos [=Knossos] in Crete, where the most famous was Ariadne, called Gnosis .
They were said to dwell in the labyrinthine passages of the earth, and so Paracelsus said (De Nymphis) their name means “Earth-dweller” (Gê-nomos).
(Even in English, the word Gnome means both an Earth Elemental and a Proverb.)
Vergilius taught the dictum (itself a powerful Gnômê):
Gnosce Gnosidem Gnômên Gnoscentem!
Know the Knowing Gnome of Knossos!
I gotta say I love it all.ME intuition is gang busters full on …. ME epiphany is kinda scary to so many folks. I GNow that now.Because in GNoSSoS we find 3 things in this ONE image, this image recall was found in KNoSSoS:

    The SIRIUS MYSTERY – the SEED PATTERN – SWASTIKA – WINDMILLS of the MIND – SOUND is KEY
  3. we see the NANO Super Hero has returned from his quest and conquered both the labyrinth and the minotaur, returning with gifts, 21st century applications.

How do we escape/get out of the labyrinth once our task is complete…?
The 21st century SS TheSeuS Firefighter followed his own hose line out of the maze.
AHA!
Yes yes this was a trick his inner Ariadne had taught him at the fire/pyre academy as a young lad who had joined the fire fighting service at the age of 26, which coincidentally is the gematria value of YHVH – the tetragrammaton – the swastika.
So do ‘we the sheeple’ know what ME next EM (electro-magnetic) move is as I continue to deconstruct the past with all that remains is now?
And now what?Connecting the SWASTIKA to the theft of FIRE from the gods might be easier than one realizes.  
It is not a hugh migratory leap from India to Persia into Greece.

Prometheus is just the westernized MEME version that which has been fed to ‘we the sheeple’.
PhDuh do you think in China or India they discuss Prometheus stealing fire from the gods…? hahahaha I really do encourage ya all to get a library card and go sit in sILEnce for a bit.
Geesh wake up and smell the Rosicrucian Red and White Roses.   🙂The two fire sticks of Agni along with the pre-Christian Buddhist Jaina Cross that shares its architecture with the 21st century NANO Light Mill are two clues that our western HIS-story is based on a big fucking LIE, on one big fat greek wedding.
Later made into a movie of course.


Clearly it is time I investigated the links between the SwaStika, the double AXE and the OX.

Vajra and a Viśvavajra or “double vajra”

AS ABOVESO BELOW

Labrys or Axe and the Double Doubleheaded Axe

 Labrys (λάβρυς in Greeklábrys) is the term for a symmetrical doubleheaded axe originally from Crete in Greece, one of the oldest symbols of Greek civilization; to the Romans, it was known as a bipennis.

The earlier ones, from the Acheulian (pre-neanderthal, Homo erectus) are also disc shaped, or heart shaped, and also a joy to behold. It is pretty much the Levallois technique which distinguishes Neandertal from Homo erectus, the Levallois being the Neandertal technique, it was a better version of the Homo erectus technique, in the sense that you could get many more handaxes from the same amount of raw material. The Acheulian took a tool blank and made a handaxe, the Neanderthals took a tool blank and made several handaxes from it.

When good raw material is hard to get, or is a long distance away, and therefore “expensive” in labour terms, this is a very, very important consideration.

It seems the roaming Romans had both in fact!

THE SIGNS AND SYMBOLS OF PRIMORDIAL MAN

by Albert Churchward

Taking for granted then that the hieroglyphic ? represents the double axe, we are sure that it was used as a symbol of power and divinity by the pre-dynastic Egyptians long before the period when they were able to write; but we have no means of really knowing what they called the double axe at that period.

NETER ~ THE EGYPTIAN WORD FOR GOD

by E. A. Wallis Budge
Taking for granted then that the hieroglyphic ? represents the axe …
PILLAR AT KNOSSOS, INCISED WITH DOUBLE-AXE SYMBOLS

That this belief goes back to Palæolithic times is suggested by the evidence of Egypt. “The common word given by the Egyptians to God, and god, and spirits of every kind, and beings of all sorts, and kinds, and forms, which were supposed to possess any superhuman or supernatural power, was”, says Professor Budge, “‘Neter’.

The hieroglyph used as the determinative of this word, and also as an ideograph, is the axe with a handle. The common word for goddess is Netert.” Professor Budge shows that “from the texts wherein the hieroglyphics are coloured it is tolerably clear that the axe head was fastened to its handle by means of thongs of leather”.

As holes were bored in axes at an early period, Mr. Legge considers that the fastenings indicate that the symbolic use of the axe “goes back to the Neolithic and perhaps the Palæolithic Age”. He adds: “It is now, I think, generally accepted that the use of the stone axe precedes that of the flint arrow-head or flint knife; and it thoroughly agrees with the little we know of the workings of the mind of primitive man that this, the first weapon that came into his hands, should have been the first material object to which he offered worship”.

An axe is worshipped by a priest in Chaldæan garb on an Assyrian agate cylinder. The axe also appears as a symbol “in the prehistoric remains of the funereal caves of the Marne, of Scandinavia and America”.4 We have already alluded to its appearance on the standing-stones of Brittany, and to the theory that Labyrinth is derived from Labrys, “the axe”. Professor Maspero shows that in Egyptian “a town neterit is ‘a divine town’; an arm neteri is ‘a divine arm'”. He adds that “neteri is employed metaphorically in Egyptian as is ‘divine’ in French”.1

Votive axes, too small for use, have been found in Cretan graves and sanctuaries. The earliest form was the single flat axe: the double-headed axe was first made after copper came into use. Mosso gives interesting particulars regarding votive axes found on the Continent. Some of these are of a friable sandstone, and could have served no practical purpose.2 Small axes, which were pierced for suspension, were used as charms in Malta and elsewhere.

The sacred axe survives to the present day in the Congo.

Is matter and anti-matter symmetric or asymmetric?

How about DNA?
So clearly the ASYMMETRIC hand-axe and ALL of the ASYMMETRIC building blocks are a common thread that resolve themselves as clues to these riddles?

What would Stan Gooch or Carl Jung say about how important ARKetypal MEMEs used to build Neanderthal ARKs and Freemason ARCHes being carried forward are?

Can we find a link between KnoSSeS, GnoSSeS, GnoSiS, and the GeneSis of an idEA that gave the world its shape and form?

In both images above and the one below we can count ‘12 sections‘ … ‘6‘ in each column.
There were not many men in history who had a opinion about the Egyptian Labryinth.

William Matthew Flinders PetrieFRS[2] (3 June 1853 – 28 July 1942), commonly known as Flinders Petrie, was an EnglishEgyptologist and a pioneer of systematic methodology in archaeology and preservation of artifacts. He held the first chair of Egyptology in the United Kingdom, and excavated many of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt. Some consider his most famous discovery to be that of the Merneptah Stele,[3] an opinion with which Petrie himself concurred.[4]Petrie developed the system of dating layers based on pottery and ceramic findings.[5]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flinders_Petrie

*************

Professor Petrie reviewed all that the classic writers had reported concerning the Labyrinth, and concluded that, in spite of their differences, each had contributed some item of value. The discrepancies between the descriptions of Herodotus and Strabo he attributes to the probable decay or destruction of the upper storey in the intervening centuries.

Many attempts have been made to visualise the Labyrinth as it existed in the time of Herodotus. Fig. 3 shows, in plan, one such reconstruction, according to the Italian archaeologist Canina. The actual plan of the Labyrinth would appear to have differed from this in many respects, judging by the indications found by Professor Petrie. The latter drew up a tentative restoration based upon the descriptions of Herodotus and Strabo so far as these tallied with the remains discovered by him.

Luigi Canina (Casale Monferrato, 1795 – Florence, 1856) was an Italianarchaeologist and architect.
Luigi Canina, Italian architect and archeologist, was born in Casale Monferrato in 1795 and died in Florence in 1856.

Clearly looking at Luigi Canina‘s biography it is NOT surprising to find Roman Swastika’s in his above ‘restoration’.
Was Luigi privy to swastika technology too being coveted by those in the know?

Can the reader see embedded within the fret border the repeating numbers 52525_25252 … etc. etc.?

Can the reader see the same pattern in the image below highlighted in yellow?
GHREES was an idea that was hatched in 1947.

Herodotus’ Egyptian labyrinth

from wikipedia:

Even more generally, labyrinth might be applied to any extremely complicated maze-like structure. Herodotus, in Book II of his Histories, describes as a “labyrinth” a building complex in Egypt, “near the place called the City of Crocodiles,” that he considered to surpass the pyramids in its astonishing ambition:

It has twelve covered courts — six in a row facing north, six south — the gates of the one range exactly fronting the gates of the other. Inside, the building is of two storeys and contains three thousand rooms, of which half are underground, and the other half directly above them. I was taken through the rooms in the upper storey, so what I shall say of them is from my own observation, but the underground ones I can speak of only from report, because the Egyptians in charge refused to let me see them, as they contain the tombs of the kings who built the labyrinth, and also the tombs of the sacred crocodiles. The upper rooms, on the contrary, I did actually see, and it is hard to believe that they are the work of men; the baffling and intricate passages from room to room and from court to court were an endless wonder to me, as we passed from a courtyard into rooms, from rooms into galleries, from galleries into more rooms and thence into yet more courtyards. The roof of every chamber, courtyard, and gallery is, like the walls, of stone. The walls are covered with carved figures, and each court is exquisitely built of white marble and surrounded by a colonnade.[21]

During the 19th century, the remains of the Labyrinth were discovered “11½ miles from the pyramid of Hawara, in the province of Faioum.”[22] The Labyrinth was likely modified and added upon “at various times. The names of more than one king have been found there, the oldest” name being that of Amenemhat III.[22] “It is unnecessary to imagine more than that it was monumental, and a monument of more than one king of Egypt.”[22]

In 1898, the Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities described the structure as “the largest of all the temples of Egypt, the so-called Labyrinth, of which, however, only the foundation stones have been preserved.”[23]

Herodotus’ description of the Egyptian Labyrinth, in Book II of The Histories, inspired some central scenes in Bolesław Prus‘ 1895 historical novelPharaoh.

Strabo’s Geography

42. Then follows Ptolemais, the largest city in the Thebais, not inferior to Memphis, with a form of government after the Grecian mode. Above this city is Abydos, where is the palace of Memnon, constructed in a singular manner, entirely of stone, and after the plan of the Labyrinth, which we have described, but not composed of many parts. It has a fountain situated at a great depth. There is a descent to it through an arched passage built with single stones, of remarkable size and workmanship.

There is a canal which leads to this place from the great river. About the canal is a grove of Egyptian acanthus, dedicated to Apollo. Abydos seems once to have been a large city, second to Thebes. At present it is a small town. But if, as they say, Memnon is called Ismandes by the Egyptians, the Labyrinth might be a Memnonium, and the work of the same person who constructed those at Abydos and at Thebes; for in those places, it is said, are some Memnonia.

My INTUITION suggests that what follows is what the Egyptian Labyrinth may have been modeled on.

The same basic idEA is what MUST link North East West South, all of us must have a common denominator that unifies us…what if?

K’UN 

The Receptive

What is the significance of K’UN in the I Ching?

What they all agree on is the keyphrase ‘The Receptive’

Here is one interpretation found on the internet, most interpretations will present the same archetypal meme messages once reduced.

I Ching Hexagram: 2

Name: K’un.

Keyphrase: The Receptive

Formed By The Trigrams: Earth over Earth

General: Be receptive to words of advice or influence from those who are worthy of respect. This is a sign of strength, not weakness

Love: Listen to the advice of family and friends

Business: Listen to the advice of experts in your field and take stock of your business

Personal: Take advice from a counselor you trust

Overview: K’un is pure yin energy. K’un indicates a time that you will benefit from listening to the advice of others whom you respect and trust. Listening to their advice is the only way you will make progress at this time. If you make the mistake of disregarding the advice or not even bothering to listen in the first place then your plans will come to nothing. There will be no progress.

But here is another source that I would prefer to quote from, the origin of the species in fact….

Introduction

This hexagram is made up of broken lines only. The broken lines represents the dark, yielding, receptive primal power of yin. The attribute of the hexagram is devotion; its image is the earth. It is the perfect complement of The Creative the complement, not the opposite, for the Receptive does not combat the Creative but completes it . It represents nature in contrast to spirit, earth in contrast to heaven, space as against time, the female-maternal as against the male-paternal. However, as applied to human affairs, the principle of this complementary relationship is found not only in the relation between man and woman, but also in that between prince and minister and between father and son. Indeed, even in the individual this duality appears in the coexistence of the spiritual world and the world of the senses. But strictly speaking there is no real dualism here, because there is a clearly defined hierarchic relationship between the two principles. In itself of course the Receptive is just as important as the Creative, but the attribute of devotion defines the place occupied by this primal power in relation to the Creative. For the Receptive must be activated and led by the Creative; then it is productive of good. Only when it abandons this position and tries to stand as an equal side by side with the Creative, does it become evil. The result then is opposition to and struggle against the Creative, which is productive of evil to both.

Keeping in MiNd that the Egyptian Labyrinth had two levels, I feel further investigation into this ancient archetype still preserved be looked at in a new light.

Update of June 30, 2006:

The sixteen figures in the lower right quadrant of the von-Franz-style 8×8 array above also appear in a discussion of the work of Charles Sanders Peirce, a logician of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. See “New Light on Peirce’s Iconic Notation for the Sixteen Binary Connectives,” by Glenn Clark, in Studies in the Logic of Charles Sanders Peirce, Indiana University Press, 1997.

2B continued without a doubt….the door has been swung wide open between East and West.

It appears the common denominator thus far between the Cretan and Egyptian Labyrinths is the SWASTIKA.

ME inspired work continues to prove the swastika is a main player in the narrative called the ‘human condition‘ed.

more information to be worked into the DNA narrative:

re: (A + T)/(G + C) ratio

…the ratio of the sum of the adenine plus thymine bases to the sum of the guanine plus cytosine bases in a DNA molecule or preparation. The ratio is to some extent a characteristic of an individual type of DNA molecule. 
(A + T)/(G + C) ratio

Can we apply Chargaff rules to these images?

ImageImage

i.e. Adjacent Pairings?

I think we can.
And should.

May I remind you of ancient Chinese wisdom based on the I Ching when thinking of Chargaff Rules and the relationships between different pairs, that may not always be apparent when discussing the Man, Bull, Lion, and the Eagle or A, T, C, G, or perhaps even how we can pair up the 4 forces of physics too!

….a set of quantitative rules describing the base composition of duplex DNA: (1) [A] = [T] and (2) [G] = [C], where the square brackets denote the concentrations of the bases in moles per cent; minor bases, if present, are included with the appropriate major base. Three corollaries follow: (1) [A]/[T] = [G]/[C]; (2) total purines = total pyrimidines, i.e. [A] + [G] = [C] + [T]; and (3) total 6‐aminobases = total 6‐ketobases, [A] + [C] = [G] + [T]. A further consequence of these relationships is that the [A + T]/[G + C] ratio is a characteristic property of individual DNAs. [After Erwin Chargaff (1905–2002), US biochemist.]

Note the 13th century Monastic symbol for the Virgin Mary is similar to the 2 x 2 grid presented by the I Ching.
The Monastic Symbol uses ‘dots’ and the Chinese symbol places ‘dashes’ in the 4 quadrants.

As we can see, we are presented with the same idea of 4 that can be combined as adjacent / opposite pairs.

But why are there 4?
ONE became TWO
TWO are comprised of a binary YANG + YIN or YES and NO, ON and OFF, (turn lights on/off) makes the room WHITE or BLACK, maybe even HOT and COLD.

And HOT and COLD are really extremes and neither is GOOD or BAD on its own.

So?

The need for greater differentiation between just HOT and COLD, YES and NO, was needed at an early date in the development of the oracular I Ching.
Thus between YES and NO is a MAYBE that is a GREY zone between BLACK and WHITE, which apparently has ‘shades’ in between.
But to maintain the balance between the extremes (polarity) it is necessary to create two maybes (think about it :wink: )

By combining the YIN and YANG, using ADJACENT or OPPOSITE pairings, 4 PAIRS were created.
And to each of those 4 PAIRS, a 3rd line was added.
(so goes the story.)

:idea: We should try to follow and RESPECT the process from the ground up, of how it came to be, what are its roots?

From the TREE of Life, grows the FLOWER which yields the FRUIT containing another SEED of Life, with which to grow another TREE.
(trees with their branches and roots are fractals … forever more … IF nature plays along … yielding more of the same)

THE SEED PATTERN

In the image above we can see that the Slavic pagan Hands of God, the I Ching, and the symbol for the Virgin Mary share a similar basic archetypal architecture.

i.e. A square cross that creates 4 quadrants, all of which are occupied NOT empty.

the film Inception inspired this blog:
“…INCEPTION’ the SEED PATTERN and the SWASTIKA”

:arrow: http://kachina2012.wordpress.com/2010/0 … -swastika/

Does a LABYRINTH given birth by the SEED PATTERN look like the profile of a BRAIN?

What is Jesus holding up in his LEFT HAND?
Can anybody translate S C D S S ?
Are the fingers of Jesus VEILing another letter?

Image

It is easy to see which images above were cropped from this CREATION TAPESTRY that shows Jesus in the middle of a Circle or Wheel of Life.
One scene is Adam ‘naming the animals’ in Eden.
Please note that Adam has a swastika on each of his knees.
Did he get those from getting down on his hands and knees and praying?
