Believe it or not, I have not really ever paid much attention to astrology or the Zodiac, although I know it's linked deeply to religious symbolism. What do you see from it?

im wiping the narrative of what people think the zodiac is all im saying is that it was prob mans first vision of patterns since they say nature is random but when u look up the constellations have order they are always there or something and he noted and realized order and i am still reading this slowly from there it says

And after having given
forth the creative forces and generative breath for the whole range of beings yet to
come, He withdrew, promising to unite to every visible work an invisible breath and a
reproductive principle, so that each being might engender its similar without necessity to
create continually new entities(3).

this made him creative curious or whatever the invisible breath the reproductive principle language culture cultured based on stories w.e so that we dont have to keep creating a new one but build on the roots and stuff have a starting point

"come, He withdrew, promising to unite to every visible work"

Therewith He took the Zodiac and ordained the world in conformity with -vital
movements, placing the animal signs after those of human form.

The vital movements is order,

"Work," said He, "my
children, offspring of my nature; take the residue of my task, and let each one of you
make beings in his image. I will give you models."

The models is the zodiac

The zodiacs are orderly

Work is order

So that is how i come to my conclusion and i will steal this knowledge

I see. The book is so interesting. It defies the knowledge anyone should have had at that time. For instance:

"Great Heaven," said one, "principle of our birth, ether, pure airs, hands, and sacred breath of the sovereign the Divine, and you, shining Stars, eyes of the Gods, unwearying light of Sun and Moon, our early brethren, what grief, what rending is this! Must we quit these vast, effulgent spaces, this sacred sphere, all these splendors of the empyrean and of the happy republic of the Gods, to be precipitated into these vile and miserable abodes? What crime, O wretched ones, have we committed? How can we have merited, poor sinners that we are, the penalties which await us? Behold the sad future in store for us--to minister to the wants of a fluctuating and dissoluble body! No more may our eyes distinguish the souls divine! Hardly through these watery spheres shall we perceive, with sighs, our ancestral heaven; at intervals even we shall cease altogether to behold it. By this disastrous sentence direct vision is denied to us; we can see only by the aid of the outer light; these are but windows that we possess--not eyes. Nor will our pain be less when we hear in the air the fraternal breathing of the winds with which no longer can we mingle our own, since that will have for its dwelling, instead of the sublime and open world, the narrow prison of the breast! But Thou, Who drivest us forth, and causest us from so high a seat to descend so low, assign a limit to our sufferings! O Master and Father, so quickly become indifferent to Thy handiwork, appoint a term to our penance, deign to bestow on us some last words, while yet we are able to behold the expanse of the luminous spheres!"

They should not have know about pan-dimensional vision or any such concept. This is very much higher order thinking.

You may have noticed I am not a fan of book-learning, far more exciting to go exploring oneself.

Cayce said (from memory) "My Father's mansion has many rooms."

What lays outside those walls?

That the preisthood is invariably male suggest secrets to hide. To me anyway.

But I have no belief in an almighty God, for I have not met one, so theology is outside my knowledge. I cannot argue God's non-existence further.

Then, not willing that the upper world should be inactive, He saw fit to fill it with spirits, in
order that no region should remain in immobility and inertia; and in the accomplishment
of His work He used His sacred art. For, taking of Himself such essence as was
necessary, and mingling with it an intellectual flame, He combined with these other
materials by unknown ways. And having achieved by secret formulas the union of these
principles, He endowed with motion the universal combination.

This can explain god if u wanna think about it i came up with my secret formula

but God's nature is both male and female as one. The Spirit (mind) is the Tao and gateway of named things. Still God.

Mind.


Is it really both male and female?

If one is privileged to be present when certain Beings have children one does not see a sexual thing between males and females. It is division of awareness .

When this particular Being (a preditory feline Kami) became weary of the wieght of her memories, she divided herself into eight beautiful children all identical in every way, each with her mother's memories, and her mother's mother's memories, and so on. At that moment, they began to live as individuals, each acquiring unique experiences. Diversity.

This is so of Kami, Deva, Asura, Nature Spirits and so on. But I would not presume my description above is universal. Nature likes diversity.

That we see wombs as a pattern in the "physiology", if I can use that term, in woodnymphs, Asuras, and a few others does not guarantee males, just a complete womb that creates children without males.

In the Nagi gods we can find males and females. Naga = males, Nagi = females. So the local folk of that part of India who claim they descend from the Naga gods are probably telling the truth.

That Merlin fell in love with Nimue, well, that is perfectly understandable. They are adorable, cheeky, knowledgeable and have a way of bringing out a man's protective instincts. That is one reason why one might want to create males in a organic world where the protection of the creators is needed.

But then again, I am not a theologian.

"Souls" are a bit beyond my understanding. Though some people rot from the inside and become totally corrupted in death. I would guess not all souls are immortal as suggested in the texts.

i was thinking that this
He bestowed on it a happy name, and, according to the similitude of its energies, He called it Self-Consciousness. Of this product he formed myriads of Souls, employing the choicest part of the mixture for the end which He had in view, proceeding with order and measure, according to His knowledge and His reason. The souls were not necessarily different, but the choicest part, animated by the Divine motion, was not identical with the rest. The first layer was superior to the second, more perfect and pure; the second, inferior truly to the first, was superior to the third; and thus, until sixty degrees, was completed the total number. Only, the Divine established this law, that all equally should be eternal, being of one essence, whose forms He alone determines. He traced the limits of their sojourn on the heights of nature, so that they might turn the wheel according to the laws of Order and of wise discretion, for the joy of their Father.
had the same message with what u posted
