I had a sort of epiphany the other day after reading a statement from Plato that we have a perceivable God:
Here at last let us say that our discourse concerning the universe (to pan) has come to its end. For having received in full its complement of
living creatures, mortal and immortal, this world (bode ho kosmos) has thus become a visible living creature (zoion horaton) embracing all that are
visible and an image of the intelligible (eikon tou noetou), a perceptible god (theos aisthetos), supreme in greatness and excellence, in beauty and
perfection, this Heaven single in its kind and one [or: this one Heaven, an only child].
It seems to me like Plato is saying by looking up we can see God as heaven or as being in the heavens. Well that does not seem too far off from the
ordinary sort of idea we have about Greek mythology but explained in a philosophical way.
Anyway, this is what got the wheels in motion to get me to look for what it might be exactly that they thought would be God. What I found was an
article in Wikipedia on the Sumerian names for the constellations with one being called the Old Man. I thought, 'as in the ancient of days of
Revelation?'. So here is this constellation ordinarily thought of as Perseus with very close-by the ever-enigmatic Pleiades star cluster. There is
also in his hand a strange variable star usually thought of as the eye of the Gorgon or Medusa head. Right below this is what has always been known as
the ram usually called Aries. If you think of the seven stars of the Pleiades as part of the ram, then it would be his seven eyes, as described in
Revelation. So this seven-fold (?) variable star could mean the seven seals of the scroll in the Ancient of Day's hand with the ram with the seven
eyes approaching to take the scroll from his hand.
Here's a map showing where the Perseid Meteor shower comes from to give a rough idea what this would look like.
