Bats – Man the Dark Knight

pokeMON

Japanese version vs International Version

This card was subject to much controversy due to the fact it featured an omote manji, which is a mirror-image version of the swastika used by the Nazis, on the card. The manji, which has a connection with Buddhism, hearkens back to centuries before the Nazi regime began. The artwork was changed to remove the manji for the English and international releases.

From pokeMON to the Japanese MON emblems.

Mon (紋?), also monshō (紋章?), mondokoro (紋所?), and kamon (家紋?), are Japanese emblems used to decorate and identify an individual or family. While mon is an encompassing term that may refer to any such device, kamon and mondokoro refer specifically to emblems used to identify a family.

The devices are similar to the badges and coats of arms in European heraldic tradition, which likewise are used to identify individuals and families. Mon are often referred to as crests in Western literature; another European heraldic device similar to the mon in function.

This might be an appropriate opportunity to present as evidence this ‘SYMBOL’ from China in light of most recent posts where I mention the BAT, DNA, and a theory of where science and religion is headed….

Btw In his writings Leibniz recognized and acknowledged that the I-Ching had binary structure too.

The 3500+ year old I-Ching links us to my DNA rant above and those 64 DNA codons which is 3.5+ billion years old which are the foundation of ALL LIFE on the pale blue dot which is about 4.5 billion years old in a universe science tells us is about 13.7 billion years old.

And other writers have pointed out the I-Ching has 64 hexagrams and written books about the connection to DNA.
And other writers have pointed out that the Ho-Tu which contributes ‘8 Bagua or trigrams’ in conjunction with the ‘8 Bagua/trigrams’  (8×8) to the formation of those 64 hexagrams is comprised of 55 black and white dots.

How many atoms of oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, and carbon make up AT CG pairs?

55 atoms
55 is the sum of the numbers 1-10.
(1+2+3+4+5 ….+10 = 55)

So folks suggest that the bible was a rip-off of EASTERN wisdom.
Was it?
Can we find a GENE theSIS in GENESIS?
I went looking for clues in the 10 Commandments (recall the sum of 1-10 = 55 and recall there are 55 atoms in ATCG pairs)

10 Commandments are found where?
In EXODUS 20:3-17

Oh look another ‘coincidence’
What letters match up with those numbers in EXODUS?

T – 20
C – 3
A – 1
G – 7

Yes I assure the scientist suffering from ‘cognitive dissonance’ these are all coincidences.

p.s.
GueSS how old I AM?

In CHINA BATS are LUCKY and seen as POSITIVE
And in Mesoamerican we find BATS are also ‘revered’ and  associated with the underworld.

Mayan Bat God- Oaxaca, AD 300–650

“The Bat God was one of the important deities of the Maya, many elements of whose religion were shared also by the Zapotec.  The Bat God in particular is known to have been revered also by the Zapotec … He was especially associated … with the underworld.”

Popol Vuh, a Mayan sacred book, identifies Zotzilaha as not a god, but a cavern, “The House of Bats” (2). Zotzilaha was home to a type of bat called camazotz; one of these monsters decapitated the hero Hunahpú. Camazotz has been translated as “death bat” (3) and “snatch bat” (4). It is recorded in chapter 10 of this book that the Camazotz’s call was similar to eek, eek (5). A vastly different story appears in Chapter 3. Here a demon called Camalotz, or “Sudden Bloodletter”, clearly a single entity, is identified as one of four animal demons which slew the impious first race of men (6).

ADDENDUM: One could also raise the question of the relation between the Bat-God, as a god who feeds, with the Christ, another god who feeds (I love the play of the word ‘feeds’ here). It is perhaps this relation that I am most interested in, the one who takes and gives only in death versus the ones who gives, and somehow continues to give in even death. The interplay of giving and taking, giving and taking and persistence. What is the relation between the parasite, the Eucharist, and vitalism as a metaphysics of perpetuity?

Aztec Christic Magic, a book by Samael Aun Weor

The Bat God

Created on Monday, 08 January 1973 15:36
Written by Samael Aun Weor

The town of Tzinacatlan in Chiapas (Mexico) is inhabited by the Tzoctziles (people of the bat) from the Mayan family and the town of Tzinacantepec in the valley of Toluca. In the Popol Vuh (Mayan Bible), the bat is a great angel who descended from heaven in order to behead the first Mayan people, who were made of wood. He is the same heavenly Bat who in the Popol Vuh advised Ixbalanque and Hunab Ku what they should do in order to become victorious in the ordeal within the cavern of the Bat God.We find the Tzinacan (bat) sketched upon steles, codices, and Mayan vessels holding the livery of the God of the air. He is shown with a nasal appendage and triangular teeth that protrude downwardly from the commissures of his lips. He was always sketched on Aztec hearths, goblets, and basins, like the vampires from the hot lands of the south of Mexico.His mouth is characteristic because of its canine and inferior, incisive teeth covered by his tongue, that always appears protruded in the Zapotec urns. He has big, well-formed ears, and protruding from them in the shape of leaves appears the tragus made of jade. He has short fingers on his paws that point towards the heights, in order to utilize the suckers on the palm of his hands (the suckers that serve the bat when it hangs itself from smooth surfaces), and his nasal appendage is in the form of a mounted chair or leaf.The Nahua temples in the form of a horseshoe were dedicated to the cult of the Bat God. His altars were of pure gold and oriented towards the East.The Bat God has the power to heal any type of sickness; yet, he also has the power of cutting the silver cord of life that unites the physical body to the soul. The Nahua Masters invoked the Bat God to ask him for the healing of their disciples or for healing of their profane friends. Only initiates assisted in that invocation, who, without touching their hands or bodies, and alternating men with women, formed a human chain in the interior of the temple. The extremes of the chain started at either side of the altar and all of them were seated in squatted positions with their back towards the wall. Freshly cut flowers were placed upon the altar and along its sides; upon two small columns carved in basalt were full-size clay hearths painted in red, the symbol of life and death. Logs of cypress (symbolic of immortality) burned within the clay hearths, whose aroma was mixed with the smoke of copalli (copal), odorous resins, and the powder of white seashells. The Master wore the livery of the God of the Air and Maxtlatl around his waist. Then, in the front, raising the extended palms of his hands, he vocalized three times the mantra ISIS, dividing it in two syllables, as follows:

Iiiiiiiissssssssssssssss Iiiiiissssssssssssssssss

Afterwards, with an obsidian knife whose hilt was made of jade and gold, he blessed the assistants, and in silence he performed the ritualistic invocation, “Lord of life and death, I invoke thee so that thou can descend to heal all of our aches.”

The imposing silence was interrupted only by the crackling of the hearths; then suddenly, the sound of flapping wings, together with an aroma of roses and spikenards, expanded all over the temple. A flame that elongated itself as if it wanted to touch the heavens came from the hearths; and the Master with the assistants prostrated until placing their foreheads on the ground.
The Nahua deity of death (the Bat God) descended wearing the livery of the God of the air or in the shape of an owl to the funerary ordeals of the Thirteenth Arcanum. The front stoop entrance to the temples of Nahua mysteries had thirteen steps, and Huehueteotl, the Old God, has thirteen locks on his head of hair.

A circular temple dedicated to the Sun existed inside the precinct where the Major Temple of Tenochtitlan was erected; this circular temple was orientated towards the East, and its ceiling allowed the sunlight to penetrate unto the altar. A gigantic sun of pure gold was placed upon the interior background wall of that temple; this gigantic sun was the visible representation of the great, invisible deity Ipalnemoani. Its door-entrance was the opened jaws of a serpent whose curved and menacing fangs protruded from its commissures, and in bas-relief upon the floor a great and bifid tongue protruded from the door of the temple. In the frontispiece of the temple, in bas-relief, there were the opened jaws of another serpent with very sharp fangs that symbolized the monster against which the adepts of the august Order of the Knight Commanders of the Sun had to fight.

The Tzinacalli (house of the bat) existed within the secret chambers of that temple of mysteries; it was a broad chamber with the interior aspect of a somber cavern, where the rituals of initiation to attain the higher degrees of Ocelotl (tiger) Knight and Cuauhtli (eagle) Knight took place. Upon the lintel of the small door concealed within the interior background wall of the cavern (a door that gave access to the temple), hung a great obsidian mirror; and on the floor in front of that small door burned a bonfire of pinewood.

The candidate for the initiation was taken to the Tzinacalli where he was left alone during the very late hours of the night. Previously, he was directed to walk in the obscurity towards the light of a bonfire, and once in front of it, to talk to the Guardian of the Threshold: “I am a child of the great Light; darkness move away from me.” The bats then began to screech and to tumble through the air upon the head of the candidate. The pinewood fire slowly diminished until only embers were left in it, which reflected upon the mirror. Suddenly, emerging from the gloom with a very noisy flapping of wings, and releasing a terrifying howling, a human shadow appeared who, with bat wings and maxtlatl around his waist, struck with his heavy sword and threatened to decapitate the intrepid invader of his domains.

Woe to the candidate who withdrew in terror! A door that until then was hidden in the rock opened in silence, and at the hinge post a strange person appeared who pointed the way towards the outside world of the profane, from where the candidate had come.

Yet, if the candidate had enough presence of courage and he dauntlessly resisted the assault of Camazotz (the God of the bats), the small door hidden in front of him was softly opened, and one of the Masters approached to encounter him; the Master then found and incinerated an effigy molded in amethyst paper that had the likeness of the candidate and that was hidden within the shadows of the cavern; meanwhile, the other Masters welcomed the candidate and invited him to enter into the temple. This ritual symbolized the death of the passions of the personality of the initiate in his passing from the darkness into the light.

Through the tests of this ordeal, to which the candidates of the initiation were submitted in the ancient schools of Nahua mysteries, their animal soul was sometimes depicted as a bat, because like the bat, the soul is blinded and deprived of its power for the lack of the spiritual light of the sun.

As vampire bats, the depraved and the avaricious ones fly down upon their prey, and afterwards they lazily go back into the gloomy caverns of their senses where they hide from the light of the day as those who live within the darkness of ignorance, desperation, and evil.

The world of ignorance is governed by fear, hate, greed, and lust. In it wander men and women who are only floating listlessly to and fro upon their passions. Only when the human being comes into the realization of the spiritual verities of life does he then escape from this underworld, from that damned cavern of bats, over which Camazotz, who sometimes even kills solely by his presence, hidden, lies in wait for his victims. The sun of truth rises in the human being and illuminates his world when he lifts his mind from the darkness of ignorance and selfishness into the light of wisdom and altruism.
A symbol of this state of consciousness in the human being is the pair of eagle eyes that, upon the tarsus (feet) of Coatlicue, try to see towards the infinite.

Practice

We recommend you choose a private place in any of your rooms, so that every week, in that place, upon a small desk or table, you can study these chapters. A white mantle, a small wooden or metallic cross, and the light of two lit candles made of wax or paraffin must not be missing upon that desk. Choose the hour from any day of the week, for instance, Thursday from 9 to 10 or from 10 to 11 p.m. Before performing the invocation of Camazotz, the Bat God, you must nourish yourself only with fruits, legumes, rye bread, and milk for three days. Do not be afraid to perform the invocation of Camazotz, with whom you have to confront yourself, to successfully continue in our studies. The soul, purified by love and sincere devotion to his internal God, must neither fear anything nor anybody, but only fear itself. Keep such an experience of the path of your life only for you.

BAT CREEK Inscription

Bat Creek inscription

The Bat Creek inscription is an inscription carved on a stone allegedly found in a Native Americanburial mound in Loudon County, in the U.S. state of Tennessee, in 1889. The inscription consists of characters loosely resembling the Cherokee alphabet invented by Sequoyah in the early 19th century.

Many of the grave mounds found in the American mid West, including those at Bat Creek, Tennessee, are ancient British in origin and design, Wilson said. Jim Michael added, “the stone tablet found at Bat Creek in 1889 included an inscription written in Coelbren, an ancient British alphabet known and recorded by historians and bards down the ages.”

Wilson said that his research had brought him into contact with very similar alphabet inscriptions in Britain, Europe and the Middle East. “The components of the alphabet derive from the earliest days of the Khumric (Welsh) people,” he added, “and were used along their migration routes to Wales in antiquity.”

Wilson’s research partner, Baram A. Blackett, said, “once we discovered the cipher for the alphabet in recorded in texts dating to the 1500s we knew we were in business. We have translated many of these inscriptions and they all make perfect sense.” Jim Michael commented that the final translation for the Bat Creek tablet was an exciting task, “especially when we knew it read, ‘Madoc the ruler he is’.”

QDSh LYHWH
“Holy to Yahweh”

However the “paleo hebrew” inscription was published in the 1870 Masonic text book General History, Cyclopedia and Dictionary of Fremasonry, by Robert Macoy on page 169.

In 2004 Mainfort and Kwas published a further article in American Antiquity, reporting their discovery of an illustration in an 1870 Masonic reference book that bears striking similarities to the Bat Creek inscription.[35]

The Masonic illustration was an artist’s impression of how the Biblical phrase “Holy to Yahweh”(QDSh LYHWH) would have appeared in Paleo-Hebrew. Mainfort and Kwas conclude, “There can be little doubt that this was the source of the inscription and that the inscription was copied, albeit not particularly well, by the individual who forged the Bat Creek stone.”[36] They repeat their 1991 contention that Emmert produced it in order to please Thomas with a Cherokee-like artifact, but add that since it is unlikely that Emmert could write Cherokee, he must have copied this Masonic illustration instead, and that the accidental resemblances to Cherokee “were enough to fool Thomas.”[37]

In 2014, the Smithsonian Department of Anthropology issued the following statement concerning the stone:

While recognizing that a diversity of opinion continues to circulate around the authenticity of the Bat Creek Stone, the curators in the Department of Anthropology at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, believe that the inscriptions on the artifact are forgeries and that the artifact is a fake. This opinion is widely shared by other professional archaeologists as represented in the article by Robert Mainfort and Mary Kwas ‘The Bat Creek Stone Revisited: A Fraud Exposed’, American Antiquity 2004. Along with other known fraudulent artifacts, we retain it in our collections as part of the cultural history of archaeological frauds, which were known to be quite popular in the second half of the 19th century.

Do bats know voices of friends they hang out with?
