So - ASAP - as I said in your new thread I went here and read it...
So far I can see that some others, like coredrill for example, have similar queries concerning your work pattern.
But now - with this reply of yours to him...
**What my research has indicated is that if i showed the pattern to the religious representatives of Andean, or Meso-American, or North American, or
Sumerian, or Elamite, or South East Asian and many other cultures, they would have been able to provide me with an explanation as to what it
represented, that the colours in themselves represented three levels the Underworld for Black, the white the Heavens, the red physical life, the
They would also indicate that the motif is the mountain of the Eastern horizon seen facing in opposition to that of the West, that this is a
cosmological representation of the world, the red and white mountain is that of the East, the white and black mountain is that of the West, the
diagonal/serpentine form is the means of transition, they might also explain how this pattern is best seen repeated to infinity.**
...I begin to see where your coming from.
You should be more "explaining" in your OPs generally.
You don't do that normally, and because you post only a lot of pics (pitifully often without badly needed citations... ...like in the dreadful "Vril
Damen" case... ) with some clever remarks on VERY complex "cathedrals of thought (and memory)" you may be misunderstood and get confronted with
more "resistance" than necessary on your mission.
I do completely agree with your thinking that you presented here.
Being not new to spiritual work in "the field" this is exactly how it works IF you meet someone with KNOWLEDGE, regardless from what culture he
I'll give you an example of that...
Some years ago a really black man from Nigeria rang at my door.
Now in Germany they were not so common 15 years ago and in a little town.
I didn't advertise my services at that time and worked only for friends and we didn't share a mutual acquaintance - at least none that I knew of at
He spoke French and English and of course we both had our hand and feet.
After some time it got clear that he had been back in his home country for several months to acquire the help of an "Olorisa" because he feared
about being "cursed".
His money ran out after 6 months and he had to go back to Germany in the middle of the process and feared for his life and sanity.
The priest sad: "Fear not. I will guide you to someone who will complete our work."
(At least thats what he told me with two languages and hand and feet.)
And that was why he rang at my door.
At that time I didn't know much at all about Africa, naturally Nigeria had pretty women but I didn't know anything about "Aborisha". Nevertheless
he insisted that his priest must have been right and so we agreed to work together on a 1 time/weekly basis for a while to see how it would work
To my amazement it did - and pretty well too.
After he explained his personal problems and told me what the Olorisa did even if he didn't understand what was done... I SAW (in my mind) what the
priest did - I UNDERSTOOD his pattern of work and what he did try to achieve!
That gave me the option to TRANSFER those African patterns into my way of thinking and experience and I could exchange (for example) African herbs
with Bach-Flower-Remedies and go in the same direction together with both of them.
After 2 months he considered himself healed and since I haven't seen him again.
So that was that about cultural/spiritual consistencies without direct contact and reoccurring patterns in habits and rituals in different times and
places (coredrill's pareidolia objection... ) and their usefulness as a map for the mind...
In some cases - even the presented - he might be right. But to prove your principle suggestion we would have to ask "someone in the know" -
unfortunately they are all dead... or are they?
