So, I was doing a bit of reading today on planetary symbols, and association of the Ancient cultures when I noticed something a little startling..
Mysteries of Saturn
Straight from the NASA website: "This is a very strange feature, lying in a precise geometric fashion with six nearly equally straight sides,"
said Kevin Baines, atmospheric expert and member of Cassini's visual and infrared mapping spectrometer team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory,
Pasadena, Calif. "We've never seen anything like this on any other planet. Indeed, Saturn's thick atmosphere where circularly-shaped waves and
convective cells dominate is perhaps the last place you'd expect to see such a six-sided geometric figure, yet there it is."
Now, what I find unusually interesting about this, is not only did this geometric shape create itself in nature, the Ancients knew about this before
the Cassini space probe even discovered such a thing in 2007.
Now what is exactly so great about the hexagon, it's just a shape isn't it? Well, ancient civilizations gave credence to the power of symbols, and
seals, which is why often, they developed languages of symbols or pictures, much like hieroglyphics.
The hexagon is the geometric shaped created inside of a hexagram.
In geometry, a hexagon (from Greek ἕξ hex, "six" and γονία, gonía, "corner, angle") is a polygon with six edges and six vertices.
The hexagram, like the pentagram, was and is used in practices of the occult and ceremonial magic and is attributed to the 7 "old" planets
outlined in astrology.
The six-pointed star is commonly used both as a talisman and for conjuring spirits in the practice of witchcraft. In the book The History and Practice
of Magic, Vol. 2, the six-pointed star is called the talisman of Saturn and it is also referred to as the Seal of Solomon. Details are given in
this book on how to make these symbols and the materials to use.
Dr. John Dee, the court astrologist of Queen Elizabeth I, in his book Hieroglyphic Monad, includes the following quote: "'Mahatma Letters,' page 345:
'The double triangle viewed by the Jewish Kabbalists as Solomon's Seal is...the Sri--Antana of the Archaic Aryan Temple, the Mystery of Mysteries, a
geometrical synthesis of the whole occult doctrine. The two interlaced triangles are the Buddham-Gums of Creation. They contain the 'squaring of the
Circle,' the 'Philosophers' Stone,' the great problems of Life and Death--the mystery of Evil. The Chela who can explain this sign from every one of
its aspects is virtually an Adept.'"
Traditionally, the Hexagram can be seen as the combination of the four elements. The triangle with the point upwards symbolizes Fire, and with a
horizontal line across its center symbolizes Air. The triangle with the point downwards symbolizes Water, and with a horizontal line across its center
symbolizes Earth. The two combined create the Hexagram, and hence a combination of the elements.
However, the hexagram has it's uses and applications outside the study of merely the Occult aspect of life. It appears often in Freemasonry, Judaism,
"The interlacing triangles or deltas symbolize the union of the two principles or forces, the active and passive, male and female, pervading the
universe ... The two triangles, one white and the other black, interlacing, typify the mingling of apparent opposites in nature, darkness and light,
error and truth, ignorance and wisdom, evil and good, throughout human life." – Albert G. Mackey: Encyclopedia of Freemasonry
The hexagram, one of the world's most ancient symbols, is featured within and on the outside of many Masonic temples as a decoration. It may have been
found within the structures of King Solomon's temple, from which Freemasons are inspired in their philosophies and studies. Like many other symbols in
Freemasonry, the deciphering of the hexagram is non-dogmatic and left to the interpretation of the individual.
Look very carefully at the top of the Talisman...You'll notice a little 6 pointed star, or Hexagram..
In the endocrine system, Anahata is associated with the thymus gland, located in the chest. This gland produces T-cells, that combat disease, and
bring equilibrium to the body. The functioning of the thymus is greatest before puberty and is impaired by the appearance of sex hormones in the blood
stream from puberty onwards.Many Western occultists associate this central chakra with the central sephirah, Tiphereth, in the kabbalistic tree of
life. Christian kabbalists in particular associate this sephirah with love, healing and Jesus Christ as God the Son.
I find it almost startling that so many olden cultures and belief systems placed so much association between the Planet of Saturn, meant to stand in
for Satan to some in Astro-theology, and the Hexagram.
A Masonic book called The Second Mile, an Eastern Star book, reveals that the "six pointed star is a very ancient symbol, and one of the most
powerful." The hexagram is used in magic, witchcraft, sorcery and occultism and the casting of zodiacal horoscopes by astrologers. "It was considered
to posses mysterious powers."
The six pointed star is used by magicians and alchemists. The sorcerers believed it represented the footprints of a special kind of DEMON called a
trued and used it in ceremonies both to call up demons and to keep them away (O. J. Graham, The Six Pointed Star, New Puritan Library, 1988, p.35).
Bill Schnoebelen, a former Satanist, says, "To the sorcerer, the hexagram is a powerful tool to invoke Satan." In fact, the word "hex" -- as to put a
"hex" or "curse" on people -- comes from this word.
If you examine the so-called "Star of David," or hexagram, closely, you will discover something astonishing. It has six points, forms six equilateral
triangles, and in its interior forms a six sided hexagon -- thus it reveals the number of Satan’ antichrist beast, -- 6 points, 6 triangles, and the
6 sides of the hexagram -- 666 !!! This ancient occultic figure is also a pagan symbol of sexual union and reproduction.
The triangle pointing downward represents the female sexual organ, and the upward pointing triangle represents the male phallus. Joined together in
the hexagram, they represent sexual union, to paganism and the occult, the union of the active and passive forces in nature. Thus the hexagram was a
part of Satan's original "sex worship" rites and symbols of the sexually oriented rites and ceremonies of BAALISM -- Nimrod and Semiramis -- Easter
(Astarte) and Baal -- Venus (Aphrodite) and Bacchus.
Essentially, the hexagram is supposed to represent the balance and harmony of opposing forces in the Universe. Which if you take Satan to be, the
balance, and opposing force to God, it would make sense to equate the two. The thing that disturbs me most, is simply, that the Ancients connected
Saturn to the Hexagram, way before the Cassini space probe discovered it....This begs the question of is it merely coincidence that they did so, or
did our ancient and mystical ancestors know more about the nature of reality than our "Scientific Establishment" gives them credit for...
The Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church, resulted in the destruction of massive amounts of mystical and sacred knowledge that had been passed
down by opposing cultures...I can only hope that the truth is finally laid to rest before our feet some day in the near future....
Is it really so far fetched to think, that the shaman's and medicine-men of our ancestral history, were in-tune with a form of sensory perception,
that allowed them to extract information about the Universe, that without technology, they otherwise may not have gained?
Some have even brought up the point of Cymatics, and with this, how the ancients associated each of the planets with a different vibratory frequency,
or musical note...
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest planet in the Solar System, after Jupiter. Named after the Roman god of
agriculture, Saturn, its astronomical symbol (♄) represents the god's sickle. Saturn is a gas giant with an average radius about nine times that of
Earth. While only one-eighth the average density of Earth, with its larger volume Saturn is just over 95 times more massive than
Notice, Roman god of Agriculture? What else was agriculture a symbol of? Fertility...
Now before we get into the Cymatics portion it would help to understand a bit of what Cymatics is...
Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα "wave") is the study of visible sound and vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a
plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or
liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency. The apparatus employed
can be simple, such as the ancient Chinese spouting bowl, or Chinese singing fountain, in which copper handles are rubbed and cause the copper bottom
elements to vibrate. Other examples are a Chladni Plate or advanced such as the CymaScope, a laboratory instrument that makes visible the inherent
geometries within sound and music.
Cymatics was re-discovered in the late 1960's by Siss medical doctor ,Hans Jenny. Hans Jenny, however features as a very prominent and interesting
character in this...
Jenny was born in Basel, Switzerland. After completing his doctorate, he taught science at the Rudolph Steiner School in Zürich for four years
before beginning his medical practice.
This is a very important point to make, because Rudolph Steiner, founder of the Anthrosophical society, was influenced and privy to a good deal of the
Occultic information posted in the earlier part of this post. Most of the secret societies have built off of the information and knowledge of their
predecessors, modifying and doing away with what was no longer beneficial.
Rudolf Joseph Lorenz Steiner (25/27 February 1861 – 30 March 1925) was an Austrian philosopher, social reformer, architect, and
esotericist. Steiner gained initial recognition as a literary critic and cultural philosopher. At the beginning of the 20th century, he founded
a spiritual movement, anthroposophy, as an esoteric philosophy growing out of idealist philosophy and with links to theosophy.
Steiner led this movement through several phases. In the first, more philosophically oriented phase, Steiner attempted to find a synthesis between
science and mysticism; his philosophical work of these years, which he termed spiritual science, sought to provide a connection between the
cognitive path of Western philosophy and the inner and spiritual needs of the human being.
In a second phase, beginning around 1907, he began working collaboratively in a variety of artistic media, including drama, the movement arts
(developing a new artistic form, eurythmy) and architecture, culminating in the building of the Goetheanum, a cultural centre to house all the arts.
In the third phase of his work, beginning after World War I, Steiner worked to establish various practical endeavors, including Waldorf education,
biodynamic agriculture, and anthroposophical medicine.
This means that Steiner would himself, have been privy to sacred information of the ancients, through the preserved teachings of mystery schools, from
which he was initiated into. I've said time and time again, the true power of our ancestors, laid in the knowledge hidden within their secret
societies, and mystery schools. At a time when the Catholic Church, and regulating powers of the world, ruled with such an iron rod, they had no
choice, but to remain secret and hidden, to all but those who wished to know them.
To reaffirm the possibility of the role Cymatics plays, this is an Ex-text from Nasa's website discussing the eerie sounds picked up from Saturn by
the Cassini space probe.
Sound Frequencies of Planets & Correlation To Physiological Organs
Saturn is a source of intense radio emissions, which have been monitored by the Cassini spacecraft. The radio waves are closely related to the
auroras near the poles of the planet. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights.
This is an audio file of radio emissions from Saturn. The Cassini spacecraft began detecting these radio emissions in April 2002, when Cassini was 374
million kilometers (234 million miles) from the planet, using the Cassini radio and plasma wave science instrument. The radio and plasma wave
instrument has now provided the first high resolution observations of these emissions, showing an amazing array of variations in frequency and time.
The complex radio spectrum with rising and falling tones, is very similar to Earth's auroral radio emissions. These structures indicate that there are
numerous small radio sources moving along magnetic field lines threading the auroral region. Time on this recording has been compressed, so that 73
seconds corresponds to 27 minutes. Since the frequencies of these emissions are well above the audio frequency range, we have shifted them downward by
a factor of 44.
A nice project would be attempt to use these frequencies in the science of Cymatics, in order to discover what kind of geometries will take place. I
think this should be a good start for now, and hopefully the thread will move progressively in time. Thank you, for reading! Now ATS, Skeptics and
Believes alike, what say you?
