I agree that it is a stretch, however most of the esoteric concepts I come across are a stretch.
I have been looking into the Templars for more clues and have ended up returning to Freemasonry after reading The Temple and the Lodge along with the Hiram Key.
They all connect back to Egypt and earlier so I returned to those schools of thought and found that Saturn was the father of both Osiris and Isis. In other interpretations they are Saturn and Jupiter among others.
Osiris was also associated with being a shepherd of his flock.
Now to tie this to the Templars, and down to Freemasonry comes the old Templar practice of wearing sheepskin undergarments at all times, similar to the Mormon's magic underwear, and the Masons use of sheepskin aprons.
This could have many meanings and as my studies have revealed that there are exoteric and esoteric understandings to which only the elect are initiated into, the rest of the profane are allowed to apply whatever meaning to the symbols they wish much as modern Freemasonry practices today.
Reminds me of a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Cymatics applied to Mozart's (Freemason) music leads me to believe that much deeper knowledge of the arts is associated with proper initiations.
Then there is the incredible connection to Masonry and all that is the UFO field.
So many different concepts to keep track of and integrate/ toss really expands my image of the court jester.
Why has there been a total absence of mentioning the interesting fact of the 33rd parallel and its connection to masonic temples to the east of prisons and the death penalty?
Is it too daunting to ever address?
