I am very fascinated with Admiral Byrd. I was a freemason for a short period of time not too long ago (i adore the masons) and found out something
very strange when researching Admiral Byrd.
I do not have time to find the source but i remember finding out that Admiral Byrd built the first Masonic Lodge in the Antartica. The strange thing
about that? He named the lodge No. 777 .
This always struck me as strange. I would like to know more about the importance of 777 and why he chose to name the lodge 777.
I am not sure if freemasons, when creating lodges usually name them No. 1, No. 2 and so on or if the creator get's to pick his own number.
It appears that the number 777 is in fact a reference to a three legged swastika known as a Triskelion
Origin of the triskelion
According to the World Encyclopedia of Flags, by Znamierovski, 1999:
'The triskelion (from the Greek "three-legged") is one of the oldest symbols known to mankind
. The earliest representations of it were
found in prehistoric rock carvings in northern Italy. It also appears on Greek vases and coins from the 6th and 8th centuries BC., and was revered by
Norse and Sicilian peoples. The Sicilian version has a representation of the head of Medusa in the center. The Manx people believe that the triskelion
came from Scandinavia. According to Norse mythology, the triskelion was a symbol of the movement of the sun through the heavens.'
The biblical meaning of number 7.
Example from The Companion Bible:
SEVEN - Denotes spiritual perfection. It is the hall-mark of the Holy Spirit’s work. He is the Author of God’s Word, and seven is stamped on it as
the water mark is seen in the manufacture of paper. He is the Author and Giver of life; and seven is the number which regulates every period of
Incubation and Gestation, in insects, birds, animals, and man.
