Samekh?
That's Samson aka the great hero.


Samson (Hebrew: שִׁמְשׁוֹן, Modern Shimshon Tiberian Šimšôn, meaning "man of the sun");[1] Shamshoun (Arabic: شمشون‎ Shamshūn/Šamšūn) or Sampson (Greek: Σαμψών) is one of the last of the Judges of the ancient Israelites mentioned in the Hebrew Bible (Book of Judges chapters 13 to 16).


Shamshun?

Shams the Sun it's a word in Arabic "Shams", it means literally "SUN".


Shams is the Arabic word for "sun" (شمس). The word has roots that go back to at least the time of the writing of the Epic of Gilgamesh, which references the Akkadian deity called Shamash.
The word may refer to:


Shamash
That's Sham + Ash if you didn't notice.


Shamash (Akkadian Šamaš "Sun"), was a native Mesopotamian deity and the sun god in the Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian pantheons. Shamash was the god of justice in Babylonia and Assyria, corresponding to Sumerian Utu. Akkadian šamaš is cognate to Syriac ܫܡܫܐ šemša or šimšu Hebrew שֶׁמֶשׁ šemeš and Arabic شمس šams.


It's the Sun God Sam! Samson!

That's why this old band is named "Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs". Because Sam IS Sham, it's a Hoax, a Scam. It was the center of Egyptian Religion, thus the name "Pharaohs".

It's a Shame, it's all looking the Same.

This is the "Star of Shamash"

This is the Shaman Qing , most just call it Shiva or Saturn but I am here to tell you it's actually everything.


I have seen this symbol in Ancient Hindu Carvings recently.

Lots of Flying wheels, and came across that symbol precisely.

I think it was on the newest Ancient Alien Episode...

Green Eggs and Ham?
Orphic Egg wiki

Ham (Disambiguation)

Ham the Chimp

Ham the Chimp and Ham the Astrochimp, was a chimpanzee who was the first Hominidae launched into outer space, on 31 January 1961.



Ham's name is an acronym for the lab that prepared him for his historic mission — the Holloman Aerospace Medical Center, located at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.


Holloman ? Very interesting term.

Holo-Man? Hollow-Man?
Hollow Definition
It's the Whole Abyss Hole.

Holy Moly!
Holy Cow!
Holy Mackerel!
Holy Smoke!
Don't choke from the artichoke.

Ham...Gold....Golden Hamster of Syria!
Mesocricetus auratus
Auratus = "Golden, Gilded, Gilt, or surprisingly enough 'Sir'," according to the translators.

Mesocricetus? This one has lots of interesting options.

Meso of course means middle.
Cetus = Whale, Shark, Seal, Sea-Monster, Dog-Fish, Dolphin, and Cetus Constellation.

Cri ? In Greek it means separate or judge.

cris-, crit-, cri- +

(Greek: to separate; a separating, putting apart; a decision, decide; to judge)


So we have "Cry", meaning sorrowful display, as well as a general meaning of "Shouting Aloud".
Crime Wiki

The word crime is derived from the latin root cernō, meaning "I decide, I give judgment". Originally the Latin word crīmen meant "charge" or "cry of distress."[7] The Ancient Greek word krima (κρίμα), from which the Latin cognate derives, typically referred to an intellectual mistake or an offense against the community, rather than a private or moral wrong.[8]


Google Translate says for Latin, "Cri" = Charged, Guilty, Falls, and get this "Current of the Holy".

If you type in "Cricetus", it says "hamster".

So let's put it together: Mesocricetus
Middle + Current of the Holy + Whale/Sea Creature/Shark

Mesocricetus auratus
"The Golden Middle Current of the Holy Whale"
(Whole Hole of the Well + Ray of Light)

Ham - Cham (Son of Noah) Wiki


Ham (Hebrew: חָם, Modern H̱am Tiberian Ḥām; Greek Χαμ, Kham; Arabic: حام, Ḥām, "hot" or "burnt"), according to the Table of Nations in the Book of Genesis, was a son of Noah and the father of Cush, Mizraim, Phut and Canaan.[2][3]



According to the Hebrew Bible, Ham was one of the sons of Noah and the father of Cush, Mizraim, Put and Canaan, who are interpreted as having populated Africa and adjoining parts of Asia. The Bible refers to Egypt as "the land of Ham" in Psalms 78:51; 105:23,27; 106:22; 1Ch 4:40. Since the 17th century a number of suggestions have been made that relate the name Ham to a Hebrew word for burnt, black or hot, to an Egyptian word for servant or the Egyptian word Kmt for Egypt.[4] A review of David Goldenberg's The Curse of Ham: Race and Slavery in Early Judaism, Christianity and Islam states that Goldenberg "argues persuasively that the biblical name Ham bears no relationship at all to the notion of blackness and as of now is of unknown etymology."[5]


I'll tell you what it means...
It's the Sha, it's the MW BACON.

Black? That's the Abyss of Nothingness.

Burnt? Hot?
That's the Sacrificial Flame of the Hearth, we cooked with it.
Prometheus taught us fire. It's burnt.

Ashes, flames, coals, cinders, all of these words apply to the general context of understanding mankind's past.

Here's more:
Noach (Parashah - Parsha)


Noach or Noah (נֹחַ — Hebrew for the name "Noah", the third word, and first distinctive word, of the parashah) is the second weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading. It constitutes Genesis 6:9–11:32. The parashah has the most verses of any weekly Torah portion in the book of Genesis (but not the most letters or words), and is made up of 6,907 Hebrew letters, 1,861 Hebrew words, and 153 verses, and can occupy about 230 lines in a Torah Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah). (In the book of Genesis, Parashah Miketz has the most letters, Parashah Vayeira has the most words, and Parashah Vayishlach has an equal number of verses as Parashah Noach.)[1]
Jews read it on the second Sabbath after Simchat Torah, generally in October or November.
The parashah tells the stories of the Flood and Noah’s Ark, of Noah’s subsequent drunkenness and cursing of Canaan, and of the Tower of Babel.


We are reading about it right now.

It said the Ark was made from "Gopher wood".
If you read that entry you will see the dispute over what the heck "Gopher wood" actually means.
So basically anyone can suggest a type of wood, it's a free-for-all of the sorts.
Anything works it's arbitrary - it's an excellent source for leads into further reading though.

Here's a few: Boxwood
It's the box, open it.

Wicker
It's the Wicked Wick of the Candle.

The "Hozen", a race of chimp-type creatures in Warcraft, call the Sha "Ick", which means several things.
Ick can mean "Disgusting, Gross", or it can also mean "Wick".
Will get into that a lot more shortly, it's a wonderful gopher hole to open and dig into.


Materials used can be any part of a plant, such as the cores of cane or rattan stalks, or whole thicknesses of plants, as with willow switches. Other popular materials include reed and bamboo.


Wicker-Man

A wicker man was a large wicker statue of a human used by the ancient Druids (priests of Celtic paganism) for human sacrifice by burning it in effigy, according to Julius Caesar in his Commentarii de Bello Gallico (Commentary on the Gallic War).[1][2]


This is Sha.


Also see The Wicker Man ( 1973 Film)


While other Roman writers of the time, such as Cicero, Suetonius, Lucan, Tacitus and Pliny the Elder, described human sacrifice among the Celts, only Caesar and the geographer Strabo mention the wicker man as one of many ways the Druids of Gaul performed sacrifices.[4] Caesar reports that some of the Gauls built the effigies out of sticks and placed living men inside, then set them on fire to pay tribute to the gods. Caesar writes that though the Druids generally used those found guilty of crimes deserving death, as they pleased the gods more, they sometimes used slaves and innocent men when no delinquents could be found.[5]

One medieval commentary, the 10th-century Commenta Bernensia, states that men were burned in a wooden mannequin in sacrifice to Taranis.[6]


Guilty, Judged. It's an ancient times death penalty of the sorts.

Willow Man
That's Willow man, and it connects us with the Willow Tree.
It's our Will, it's a name used often in our modern era in many variations.
It's what you write before you die to divide your belongings among others.
You "Will It".

It's the Burning Man.


Check out the section about the "Temples".
It's very compelling to find out they actually do this.

Here's a lead from the down further in the wiki:
Zoetrope

A zoetrope is a device that produces the illusion of motion from a rapid succession of static pictures. The term zoetrope is from the Greek words ζωή zoe, "life" and τρόπος tropos, "turn". It may be taken to mean "wheel of life".



History of the picture show, heh:
Praxinoscope
Cool stuff.

Bonfire wiki

A bonfire is a controlled outdoor fire used for informal disposal of burnable waste material or as part of a celebration. Celebratory bonfires are typically designed to burn quickly and may be very large. The name "bonfire" is from "bone-fire".[1]


Bonfire Night wiki


Bonfire Night is an annual event dedicated to bonfires, fireworks and celebrations.


Who here has participated in "Bonfire Night" in some form or fashion in their lifetime?
Everyone just about, if not all. It's always been part of human culture.

Wicca? Wick of the Wicker-Man.

So Witches Sabbat? It's Shabbat in Judaism.



The eight-armed sun cross represents the Pagan Wheel of the Year.

Wicca Wheel of the Year

Kołomir - the Slavic example of Wheel of the Year indicating seasons of the year. Four-point and eight-point swastika shaped wheels were more common.


Look familiar?

Star polygon wiki
Star Heraldry

See everyone's actually the same religion they just don't realize it because they are ignorant of our origins.


That's the Society of Jesus, they are using these symbols to tell those seeking deeper knowledge what's really going on.

So I asked the black mamba and he sent me to Urubamba Peru.
Think I should use a wink of ink about the Inca.


Urubamba or Urupampa (Quechua "flat land of spiders") is a small town in Peru, located near the Urubamba River under the snow-capped mountain Ch'iqun. Located one hour from Cusco, Urubamba is the largest town in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. It is also located near a number of significant ruins of the Inca Empire, including Machu Picchu. Tourists often come through the town on their way to visit these sites.


Spiders, that's the 8.

Sacred Valley

In a flash of Light, I find my Inti.
It's enlightening to find Inti, it's Intention to Intellect. It's Interesting.

Inti = Entry, Ent, Knowledge
2 Trees = Ents, Pillars of the Gateway
Inti, Ents, it makes "Sense".



Inti is the ancient Incan sun god. Worshiped as a patron deity of the Inca Empire, he is of unknown mythological origin. The most common story says that he is the son of Viracocha, the god of civilization.[1]




According to an ancient myth, Inti taught his son Manco Cápac and his daughter Mama Ocllo the arts of civilization and they were sent to earth to pass this knowledge to mankind.[3]



In Quechua, Inti Raimi, means "resurrection of the sun" or "the way/path of the sun."


It's the Sham of the Sun, here too like elsewhere in other cultures.

The Inti Raymi ("Festival of the Sun")[1] was a religious ceremony of the Inca Empire in honor of the god Inti, one of the most venerated gods in Inca religion. It really was the celebration of the Winter Solstice - the shortest day of the year in terms of the time between sunrise and sunset. In South America Pará- Brazil, which falls below the equator, the months of June & July are Winter months.


Inti Raymi wiki

Raymi ? Ray Me, Re Mi , and Rhyme


During the Inca Empire, the Inti Raymi was the most important of four ceremonies celebrated in Cusco, as related by Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. The celebration took place in the Haukaypata or the main plaza in the city.


The name 'Vega' yet again.
Will get into that a lot more later.

So since Inti is the "Sun-Son" of Viracocha, that means that it is actually Viracocha in disguise.


Viracocha is the great creator god in the pre-Inca and Inca mythology in the Andes region of South America. Full name and some spelling alternatives are Wiracocha,[1] Apu Qun Tiqsi Wiraqutra, and Con-Tici (also spelled Kon-Tiki) Viracocha. Viracocha was one of the most important deities in the Inca pantheon and seen as the creator of all things, or the substance from which all things are created, and intimately associated with the sea.[2] Viracocha created the universe, sun, moon, and stars, time (by commanding the sun to move over the sky)[3] and civilization itself. Viracocha was worshipped as god of the sun and of storms. He was represented as wearing the sun for a crown, with thunderbolts in his hands, and tears descending from his eyes as rain.



Tiqsi Huiracocha may have several meanings. In the Quechua language tiqsi means foundation or base, wira means fat, and qucha means lake, sea, or reservoir.[9] Viracocha's many epithets include great, all knowing, powerful, etc. Wiraqucha could mean "Fat (or foam) of the sea".[2][10]
The name is also interpreted as a celebration of body fat (Sea of fat), which has a long pre-Hispanic tradition in the Andes region as it is natural for the peasant rural poor to view fleshiness and excess body fat as the very sign of life, good health, strength, and beauty.[11]


Anyone who has read the other prior threads will recognize most of this easily.

“ "Immediately he made him his green mask; he took red color with which he made the lips russet; he took yellow to make the facade; and he made the fangs; continuing, he made his beard of feathers..."[16]


Green Mask? The Mask (Film)


The story, however, does not mention whether Viracocha had facial hair or not with the point of outfitting him with a mask and symbolic feathered beard being to cover his unsightly appearance because as Viracocha said "If ever my subjects were to see me, they would run away!"


Why ? Because those "rays of light" are actually "Electric Eels" ? Something like that perhaps?

So this leads us to Bochica
Muska (Disambig)

Shazbot! the Sha hides in the "Tribes" of Mork.

Unveil "Marvel", it's the Veil of Mars.
Become a Detective of Comics like DC.

This is Shazam!
The Rising Red with the Golden Bolt.

Unmask the Mar-Vell.

You will go far when you discover the truth about Mrs Marvel's Star.


The character has also been known as Binary, Warbird, and Captain Marvel at various points in her history,

Marvel at the Warbird of Binary merged into One.

It's like the Shabda coming out of the Boombox of Kazaam.
That's Shaq the Shocker as Djinn.

I never saw the film, probably ought to keep it that way. If you haven't seen it, don't.
It's probably as horrible as Shaq Fu

Check out the wiki story-line though, it's nuts.

In the game's storyline, Shaquille O'Neal wanders into a kung fu dojo while heading to a heavily emphasized charity basketball game in Tokyo, Japan. After speaking with a kung fu master, he stumbles into another dimension, where he must rescue a young boy named Nezu from the evil mummy Sett-Ra.


Sett-Ra, that's the Sha.
+ and -, 0 and 1, the Binary Warbird.
That symbol of the bolt you see so often, that's the Z of Zoroaster-Zero-Zorro.

The Set Animal of ancient Egypt was literally called "SHA".

In ancient Egyptian art, the Set animal, or sha, is a chimerical beast, the totemic animal of the god Set. Because Set was identified with the Greek Typhon, the animal is also commonly known as the Typhonian animal or Typhonic beast. There may be some relation between the sha and the modern Egyptian cryptid known as the salawa.


It's the Chimera.
The Shades of Mixture.
Life and Death, this is Sha.

That's why in Warcraft the Sha is typically shown with hues of different color, usually Gray.


I really got to tell you, this is the Link to the Past and that Z with the Sword means Zoro's Star.

This is the Canon of Canaan, my Cannon is Gannon

"Mandrag Ganon," which means "Ganon of the Enchanted Thieves"



Ganon was originally known as "Hakkai" during development of the Nintendo Entertainment System video game The Legend of Zelda, in reference to a humanoid pig character known as Zhu Bajie (Cho Hakkai in Japanese) from the famed 16th-century Chinese novel Journey to the West.[7] For the development of Ocarina of Time, Ganon was conceived by character designer Satoru Takizawa. Takizawa had imagined Ganon as a "crooked and complex thief, who was basically an all around abominable human being".[8] However, script director Toru Osawa claimed that this image was "not the case". He began to speak of how Ganondorf was meant to have "parts where he is rather good", comparing him to the character of Raoh in Fist of the North Star.[9]


This is actually Zhu Bajie, it's the BACON and the HAM.

Zhu Bajie, also named Zhu Wuneng, is one of the three helpers of Xuanzang and a major character of the novel Journey to the West. He is called "Pigsy" or "Pig" in many English versions of the story.



His Buddhist name "Zhu Wuneng", given by Bodhisattva Guanyin, means "pig (reincarnated) who is aware of ability," or "pig who rises to power", a reference to the fact that he values himself so much as to forget his own grisly appearance. Xuanzang gave him the nickname Bājiè which means "eight restraints, or eight commandments" to remind him of his Buddhist diet.
In the original Chinese novel, he is often called dāizi (呆子), meaning "idiot". Sun Wukong, Xuanzang and even the author consistently refers to him as "the idiot" over the course of the story. Bodhisattvas and other heavenly beings usually refer to him as "Heavenly Tumbleweed", his former name when he was a heavenly marshal.


The Heavenly Tumbleweed, interesting.
It's like this Pigsy is usually connected to the Monkey, sorta like Ham the Astrochimp.

Sun Wukong the Monkey King

Sun Wukong possesses an immense amount of strength; he is able to lift his 13,500 jīn (8,100 kilograms (17,900 lb)) staff with ease. He is also extremely fast, able to travel 108,000 li (54,000 kilometres (34,000 mi)) in one somersault. Sun knows 72 transformations, which allows him to transform into various animals and objects; he has trouble, however, transforming into other people, because he is unable to complete the transformation of his tail.


Sound familiar?

Define "Zelda" -

Ben Reeves of Game Informer explained that the "name Zelda (alternately Selda or Segula) might not be used much anymore, but this old Yiddish name means "blessed, happy, or lucky."[4]


(Japanese: ゼルダ姫 Hepburn: Zeruda-hime?)

Another link - Zeruda

Though remember that Precious is a meaning of Zelda and not the name itself.

It's Gannon's "Precious" I suppose?
Here's more at Baby Names



The name Zelda is a German baby name. In German the meaning of the name Zelda is: From the Old German, meaning 'grey battle' or 'Christian battle'.

Latin Meaning:
The name Zelda is a Latin baby name. In Latin the meaning of the name Zelda is: Abbreviation of Grizelda: Gray; gray-haired.

Teutonic Meaning:
The name Zelda is a Teutonic baby name. In Teutonic the meaning of the name Zelda is: Gray haired battle maiden.


Aha! The Gray Lady, Frau or Frigga.
Venus, aka Ms Marvel.

This is all about the Triforce.


The book The Legend of Zelda and Philosophy offers several interpretations about the significance and role of the Triforce.



Referred to as "The Golden Power" in ancient Hylian literature, it is an omnipotent sacred relic, representing the essence of the Golden Goddesses who created the realm of Hyrule. It appeared where they departed the realm for the heavens.



Charles Joshua Horn suggests that all pieces of the Triforce are intended to be used in moderation, and that each piece is morally neutral. He says that wisdom and courage are not inherently more valuable than power, and that all three can be abused when in certain hands. The author draws a connection with Aristotle, who painted courage as a virtue, a virtue being "when that disposition falls between two extremes of excess and deficiency." Link uses courage as a virtue, facing Ganon while taking reasonable precautions so as not to be reckless. Similarly, the author says, power must be used in moderation.[1]

The author suggests that "maybe the Triforce is a symbol for what virtues the goddesses wanted to show were the most important in their absence." The author goes on to suggest that the Triforce "may not be a fictional entity at all, but instead, a bright guiding force in our sometimes dark world."[1]


So the suggestions are what? That this is drawn from our collective Histories, and forged into a modern story-line.

A little more about Zhu Bajie:

In traditional Chinese Taoism, there is a divine goddess names Doumu Yuanjun (斗姆元君) who was acclaimed as the mother of all the constellations, even the Emperor Zi-Wei is her son. She has four faces while one of them is akin to a pig's face. Tiānpéng Yuánshuài(天蓬元帅; lit. "Marshal Canopy") is one of her most significant understrappers, which is the head general of The North pole.

According to the depiction in the chapter 217 of 《道法会元》, a biography of Taoism and Chinese mythical stories complied in Ming Dynasty; Tiānpéng Yuánshuài was a blazing powerful marshal in the North Pole. A phrase depicts his appearance as:

He was scarily imposing with three heads and six arms, red hair, red armor all over; Holding a magic seal, an axe, a firm rope in left hands and a convulsion bell, a symbolic artifact of constellations and a long sword in right. He leads 360,000 warriors; travels along with scary and dark gas, in which there is a five-colored cloud. Numerous deities with great respect always greet his arrivals.

So let's play Tetris and bust out the Tetrahedron.


In geometry, a tetrahedron (plural: tetrahedra or tetrahedrons) is a polyhedron composed of four triangular faces, three of which meet at each corner or vertex. It has six edges and four vertices. The tetrahedron is the simplest of all the ordinary convex polyhedra and the only one that has four faces.[1]


When you arrange it into the Net, it becomes what?


So clearly you can see this symbol originates not from some video game fictional story, but instead from actual Earth history and scientific mathematical knowledge.

These aren't mysteries per se, but instead great discoveries from our past that we should all learn about and share.
It's a real "Link to the Past", if only you are willing to look in between the lines.

So if Gannon is part of the Sha motif, than does that mean he is "Shannon"? Yes for many reasons, here is one:

Shannon ("wise river") is an Irish unisex name, Anglicised from Sionainn. Alternative spellings include Shannen, Shanon, Shannan, Seanan, and Siannon. The variant Shanna is an Anglicisation of Sionna ("possessor of wisdom").
Sionainn is an Irish portmanteau of sion (wise) and abhainn (river).[1] This is the Irish name for the River Shannon. Because the suffix ain indicates a diminutive in Irish, the name is sometimes mistranslated as "little wise one".


Shannon = Sionainn
Sion = Wise
Sionna = Wise Goddess = Shannon

The name Sionainn alludes to Sionna, a goddess in Irish mythology whose name means "possessor of wisdom". She is the namesake and matron of Sionainn, the River Shannon. Sionainn is the longest river in the British Isles.[2]



Further info about "Journey to the West" ...

The bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara (Guanyin), on instruction from the Buddha, gives this task to the monk and his three protectors in the form of disciples — namely Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujing — together with a dragon prince who acts as Xuanzang's steed, a white horse.


Let's look at Sha Wujing now...

Shā Wùjìng is one of the three disciples of Xuánzàng. He appears as a character in the novel Journey to the West written by Wu Cheng'en in the Ming Dynasty, although versions of his character predate the Ming novel. In the novels, his background is the least developed of the pilgrims and he contributes the least to their efforts. He is called Sand or Sandy and is known as a "water buffalo" for his seemingly less developed intelligence in many English versions of the story.


Call him Sand or Sandy, it's the Sand-Man.




His Buddhist name "Sha Wujing", given by Bodhisattva Guanyin, means "sand aware of purity". His name is translated into Korean as Sa Oh Jeong, into Japanese as Sha Gojō, into Sino-Vietnamese as Sa Ngộ Tịnh.
He is also known as "Monk Sha", "Shā Sēng" in Mandarin Chinese, Sa Tăng in Sino-Vietnamese and Sua Cheng in Thai .


The Monk Sha, Sha Seng, aka Sha Gojo.
"Sand Aware of Purity".

Like Zhu Bajie, Wujing was originally a general in Heaven, more specifically a Curtain-Lifting General.(卷帘大将 juǎnlián dàjiàng) In a fit of rage, he destroyed a valuable vase. Other sources mention that he did this unintentionally, and in the Journey to the West series, it was an accident. Nevertheless, he was punished by the Jade Emperor, who had him struck 800 times with a rod and exiled to earth, where he was to be reincarnated as a terrible man-eating sand demon. There, he lived in the Liúshā-hé (流沙河, Lưu Sa Hà in Han-Vietnamese, "flowing-sand river", or "quicksand-river", modern name Kaidu River). Every day, seven flying swords sent from heaven would stab him in the chest before flying off as a punishment to him. As a result, he had to live in the river to avoid the punishment.


This should really start bringing things together now.



Wujing's appearance was rather grisly; he had a red beard and his head was partially bald; a necklace consisting of skulls made him even more terrible. He still carried the weapon he had in Heaven, a yuèyáchǎn, a double-headed staff with a crescent-moon (yuèyá) blade at one end and a spade (chǎn) at the other, with six xīzhàng rings in the shovel part to denote its religious association.


Here is a link to the Monk's Spade, which is really interesting.


A monk's spade (Traditional Chinese: 月牙鏟; Simplified Chinese: 月牙铲; pinyin: yuèyáchǎn; literally "Crescent Moon Spade"; also, Traditional Chinese: 禪仗; Simplified Chinese: 禅仗; pinyin: chánzhàng; literally, "Zen Weapon". Romanized Japanese: getsugasan, Hiragana: げつがさん), also called a Shaolin Spade, is a Chinese pole weapon consisting of a long pole with a flat spade-like blade on one end and a smaller crescent shaped blade on the other. In old China, Buddhist monks often carried spades (shovels) with them when travelling. This served two purposes: if they came upon a corpse on the road, they could properly bury it with Buddhist rites, and the large implement could serve as a weapon for defence against bandits. Over time, they were stylised into the monk's spade weapon.


So it's useful in that you can bury your foes after defeating them.


It is most famous for being the weapon of Sha Wujing, the "Sand Monk" from the 16th-century classic Chinese shenmo novel Journey to the West, as well as that of Lu Zhishen in Water Margin, but the weapon is also historically associated with the Shaolin monks and features in the martial arts wushu, gongfu, and Shaolin kung fu. It has been widely used in kung fu cinema (notably by Lau Kar-Fai in The 36th Chamber of Shaolin), and is used by the Shaolin priest in the online game Dragon Fist II and by Abbot Song in Jade Empire.



The character Sha Gojyo in the Japanese manga and anime series Saiyuki wields a modified form of this weapon with great skill and dexterity.

So why is "Sha" the "Ax"?
Because it's the Axis, the Axl (X-Chi) of the Rose (Rows-Rho).
It's the Slash with the Snake Pit.

I'm telling you about the Rowan Tree, in order to explain my terminology:


The rowans or mountain-ashes are shrubs or small trees in genus Sorbus of family Rosaceae.


Rosa is the Rowan Roamin Roman.
A little more info to show you the ropes of rowing with the Sha:


The traditional names of the rowan are those applied to the species Sorbus aucuparia, Sorbus torminalis (wild service-tree) and Sorbus domestica (true service-tree). The Latin name sorbus was loaned into Old English as syrfe. The name "service-tree" for Sorbus domestica is derived from that name by folk etymology. The Latin name sorbus is from a root for "red, reddish-brown" (PIE *sor-/*ser-); English sorb is attested from the 1520s in the sense "fruit of the service tree", adopted via French sorbe from Latin sorbum "service-berry". Sorbus domestica is also known as "Whitty Pear", the adjective whitty meaning as much as "pinnate". The name "mountain-ash" for Sorbus domestica is due to a superficial similarity of the rowan leaves to those of the ash; not to be confused in Fraxinus ornus, a true ash that is also known as "mountain ash".[5] Sorbus torminalis is also known as "chequer tree", its fruits, formerly used to flavour beer, being called "chequers", perhaps from the spotted pattern of the fruit.


Check, chequers?

Hey that's SHAX, the Demon listed in the Ars Goetia.

Shax[4] (also spelled Chax, Shan, Shass, Shaz, and Scox) is a Great Marquis of Hell, and has power over 30 legions of demons on evil horses. He takes away the sight, hearing and understanding of any person under the conjurer's request, and steals money out of kings' houses, carrying it back to the people. He also steals horses and everything the conjurer asks. Shax can also discover hidden things if they are not kept by evil spirits, and sometimes gives good familiars, but sometimes those familiars deceive the conjurer. He should not be bothered too often.
Shax is thought to be faithful and obedient, but is a great liar and will deceive the conjurer unless obliged to enter a magic triangle drawn on the floor. He will then speak marvellously and tell the truth. He knows when lies are told and uses these to teach lessons.
He is depicted as a stork that speaks with a hoarse but subtle voice; his voice changes into a beautiful one once he entered the magic triangle.

It's the Rho of the Saint's Row, the name's Aisha, you will find her there, played by Sy Olivia Smith.

I don't think I quoted to this part about the Rowan Tree:

The Old English name of the rowan is cwic-beám, which survives in the name quickbeam (also quicken, quicken-tree and variants). This name by the 19th-century was re-interpreted as connected to the word witch, from a dialectal variant wick for quick and names such as wicken-tree, wich-tree, wicky, wiggan-tree, giving rise to names such as witch-hazel,[6] witch-tree.[7]


Wiccan of the Wicked Wick of the Sha.
It's the "Quick-Beam", the "Quicken".




The name rowan is recorded from 1804, detached from an earlier rowan-tree, rountree, attested from the 1540s in northern English and Scottish. It is from a North Germanic source (such as Middle Norwegian), derived from Old Norse reynir (c.f. Norwegian rogn, Swedish rönn), ultimately from the Germanic verb *raud-inan "to redden", in reference to the berries (as is the Latin name sorbus). Various dialectal variants of rowan are found in English, including ran, roan, rodan, royan, royne, round, rune;[citation needed]


Round? That's Rho because it's Rowing.

Rodan? Seriously??
That's the Giant Roc in Godzilla films
That wiki has some interesting info.

Since I linked Rodan I suppose I'll also toss out King Ghidorah aka Monster Zero. Of course almost any fictional storytelling is steeped in occult motifs, especially with something like "Godzilla".

Back to the Rowan Tree wiki:

The Old Irish name is cairtheand, reflected in Modern Irish caorann. The "arboreal" Bríatharogam in the Book of Ballymote associates the rowan with the letter luis, with the gloss "delightful to the eye (li sula) is luis, i.e. rowan (caertheand), owing to the beauty of its berries". Due to this, "delight of the eye" (vel sim.) has been reported as a "name of the rowan" by some commentators.[who?] In the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia this species is commonly referred to as a "Dogberry" tree.[8] In German, Sorbus aucuparia is known as the Vogelbeerbaum ("bird-berry-tree") or as Eberesche. The latter is a compound of the name of the ash tree (Esche) with what is contemporarily the name of the boar (Eber) but in fact the continuation of a Gaulish name, eburo- (also the name for a dark reddish-brown colour, cognate with Greek orphnos, Old Norse iarpr "brown"); like sorbus, eburo- seems to have referred to the colour of the berries; it is also recorded as a Gaulish name for the yew (which also has red berries), see also Eburodunum (disambiguation). The Welsh name Criafol refers to the tree as 'lamenting fruit', associating the red fruit with the blood of Christ; as Welsh tradition believed the Cross was carved from the wood of this tree.


Again the terminology "Delight", how fascinating because this term is popping up far more than coincidence would suggest.

It also says the Welsh tradition is that the Cross was carved from a Rowan tree.
"Criafol" is their term.

It also connects us with the "YEW" terminology.
Yew = You = Ewe = U

Ydalir.



In Norse mythology, Ýdalir ("yew-dales"[1]) is a location containing a dwelling owned by the god Ullr. Ýdalir is solely attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources. Scholarly theories have been proposed about the implications of the location.

A lot of interesting stuff here. It's clear you've done your research. I'll be keeping on eye on this thread...some very intriguing parallels going on.


Thanks, I will keep adding to it.
Since I have only two responses to the thread so far I decided I wanted to respond.

Just to say that mostly.

I actually intended to post this stuff like two or more weeks ago but for a lot of reasons I got sidelined temporarily.

Thanks for the responses.
I do like pondering Ancient Aliens concepts and the show has had some good episodes over the years.
Some episodes I'm not so into, mostly because they are sorta repeats from earlier seasons, among other reasons.

I am happy that you and 6 others have found the "Sha Thread" interesting so far.
I will add way more to it than what's currently up unless current plans change.

There are tons of pathways and side tunnels of all flavors to explore here and I really haven't even broke the surface. It's so daunting sometimes.

I'm kinda all over the place, have a handful of other thread topics I want to get into (and actually intended to have completed already).

All I really wanna do is pace back and forth listening to music jamming out. Sitting down to type hasn't been jiving with my moods much lately.


I'll try to keep adding more content daily if I can stay motivated.

You have some real mind bending threads.

After your last thread I am seeing 2 pillars everywhere!! I feel like Jim Carrey in the movie 23, except with 2 pillars, white rabbits and little green men!!

 


The wickerman...

In the Bible it describes a few beings who appear like they are on fire.

and

Most Carvings and seals of Shamash depict him as a giant with a Bull Style horned Helmet or actual devil horns. The Greek style it seems.

The ancient Greeks had a good grasp of things.

 


So the word Shame itself may stem from King Shamash?

Some really interesting carvings and seals of Shamash rising from between 2 mountains and/or pillars.

 


The Chi Ra on your last thread was between two pillars with water flowing beneath it.

and there the 2 pillars are again with water under them.

I wonder if it has to do with the Pillar(s) from Exodus?...

and then the whole, Pi thing from the other thread is still bugging me. 3.14. Perfect Circle.

I got a crazy idea:

Mathematically if you cut a perfect circle it explodes into infinity.

Is this what is occurring in Fusion Experiments and explosions??

The splitting of the atom is splitting a micro perfect circle. Opening a micro black whole releases the contents and energy of a micro universe, a microverse?? Cutting the event Horizon...

If this crazy idea is a vague resemblance of reality. Is it ethical to destroy what may be someone else's Universe?

Their Perfect Circle??

Amazing thread! Starred! Great work!


However I was a bit shocked that the OP didn't mention the word Akasha!


Akasha (or Akash, Ākāśa, आकाश) is the Sanskrit word meaning "aether" in both its elemental and metaphysical senses.


Ark-Ash-Sha


Understanding word play is vital if we are to unravel the mysterious meanings behind all the magic spells TPTB cast upon the world.

I'll find a way to work what you brought up in as well.
I have been thinking I want to do the "Shamrock" next content post.

Thank you for the positive comment and suggesting something that is Directly related to the topic matter!

That's a really interesting point to consider.

If splitting an atom destroys a micro-verse that would be frightening.
To imagine what would happen if our universe was split?
Cannot even fathom it.

You mentioned that you are seeing two pillars everywhere, just wait I have some insane pillar stuff for this very thread coming soon. Maybe I'll work it into today somehow.
You will love it, haha.

Anyhow, I need to go prepare and plan, I will make some posts today shortly.

It's the Sham of the Roc, the Shamrock.

The Sham is Shunned they call it the Sun, it's the Son of the Same Sam.

The Whole Hole is the Sacred Orphic Orifice of Eurydice.

Know the Cloak of the Oak, the Nymph is a Synthetic Symphony.
It's the O of Apollo, the Flaming Coal from the Shoal.
Did I say Shoal? I mean Sheol I am speaking in Shades of Hades.

Apollo is Apollyon, that's Abaddon, the Abode of Ammon.


She'ol (/ˈʃiːoʊl/ shee-ohl or /ˈʃiːəl/ shee-əl; Hebrew שְׁאוֹל Šʾôl), translated as "grave", "pit", or "abode of the dead", is the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible's underworld, a place of darkness to which all the dead go, both the righteous and the unrighteous, regardless of the moral choices made in life, a place of stillness and darkness cut off from God.[1]

The inhabitants of Sheol were the "shades" (rephaim), entities without personality or strength.[2] Under some circumstances they could be contacted by the living, as the Witch of Endor contacts the shade of Samuel for Saul, but such practices are forbidden (Deuteronomy 18:10).[3] While the Old Testament writings describe Sheol as the permanent place of the dead, in the Second Temple period (roughly 500 BCE-70 CE) a more diverse set of ideas developed: in some texts, Sheol is the home of both the righteous and the wicked, separated into respective compartments; in others, it was a place of punishment, meant for the wicked dead alone.[4] When the Hebrew scriptures were translated into Greek in ancient Alexandria around 200 BC the word "Hades" (the Greek underworld) was substituted for Sheol, and this is reflected in the New Testament where Hades is both the underworld of the dead and the personification of the evil it represents.[5]





The Hebrew term Abaddon (Hebrew: אֲבַדּוֹן‎, 'Ǎḇaddōn), and its Greek equivalent Apollyon (Greek: Ἀπολλύων, Apollyon), appear in the Bible as a place of destruction and an angel, respectively. In the Hebrew Bible, abaddon is used with reference to a dwelling place of the dead, often appearing alongside the better-known term שאול (sheol). In the New Testament Book of Revelation, an angel called Abaddon is shown as the king of an army of locusts; his name is first transcribed in Greek (Revelation 9:11 – "whose name in Hebrew Abaddon" (Ἀβαδδὼν)), and then translated ("which in Greek means the Destroyer" (Ἀπολλύων, Apollyon)). The Latin Vulgate, as well as the Douay Rheims Bible, has an additional note (not present in the Greek text), "in Latin Exterminans", exterminans being the Latin word for "destroyer".


The Flaming Coal from the Shoal is Mephistopheles of Memphis.

Shamrock is usually considered to refer to either the species Trifolium dubium (lesser clover, Irish: seamair bhuí)[2] or Trifolium repens (white clover, Irish: seamair bhán). However, other three-leaved plants—such as Medicago lupulina, Trifolium pratense, and Oxalis acetosella—are sometimes called shamrocks or clovers. The shamrock was traditionally used for its medicinal properties and was a popular motif in Victorian times.


"Dubium" = Doubt, Reservation, Hesitation, Dubiety
In Latin
It's "Dubious", it's the Sham of the Rock.



du·bi·ous (db-s, dy-)
adj.
1. Fraught with uncertainty or doubt; undecided.
2. Arousing doubt; doubtful: a dubious distinction.
3. Of questionable character: dubious profits.


Oxalis acetosella

Oxalis acetosella (wood sorrel or common wood sorrel) is a plant from the genus Oxalis, common in most of Europe and parts of Asia.


It is also known as Alleluia, due to the fact that it blossoms between Easter and Pentecost, when the Psalms which end with Hallelujah were sung.



The common wood sorrel is sometimes referred to as a shamrock and given as a gift on St. Patrick's Day. This is due to its trifoliate clover-like leaf, and to early references to shamrock being eaten.


A strange one to translate:
Webster's believes it means "Sharp Acid" in Greek. And I agree that's a good one.

In Latin it is even stranger but can be also useful:
"ox alis ac et sella" = "is passed and skirts and saddle" ?

Let's disambiguate and find alternates with the same wording:
"Is passed" can also be just "passed" or "past".
"And" can be "as", or "the".
"Skirts" = "Wings", or "The Wings", or "Wings Of".
"Saddle" = "Chair", or "Seat".

So "ox alis ac et sella" also might mean:
"Past of the Winged Chair", or "Passed the Winged Seat".
A "Winged Chair" sounds like the "Throne in the Sky".
So this is why Oxalis acetosella is called "Hallelujah"?


The first mention of shamrock in the English language occurs in 1571 in the work of the English Elizabethan scholar Edmund Campion. In his work Boke of the Histories of Irelande, Campion describes the habits of the 'wild Irish' and states that the Irish ate shamrock "Shamrotes, watercresses, rootes, and other herbes they feed upon".[16]


"Rote" in Latin = Wheel

Sham of the Wheel, the Sham Rote.


Similarly, another story tells of how St. Brigid decided to stay in Co. Kildare when she saw the delightful plain covered in clover blossom (scoth-shemrach).[15]


Shem-rach?
'Shem' is 'Sam'

It's Ham's Brother!
The Faint Trick of Saint Patrick!


Shem is also credited with killing Nimrod,


And :

Semitic is still a commonly used term for the Semitic languages, as a subset of the Afro-Asiatic languages, denoting the common linguistic heritage of Arabic, Aramaic, Akkadian, Ethiopic, Hebrew and Phoenician languages.


Shem = "Semitic", "Semites".

In linguistics and ethnology, Semitic (from the Biblical "Shem", Hebrew: שם‎, translated as "name", Arabic: ساميّ‎) was first used to refer to a language family of West Asian origin, now called the Semitic languages. This family includes the ancient and modern forms of Ahlamu, Akkadian (Assyrian-Babylonian), Amharic, Amorite, Arabic, Aramaic/Syriac, Canaanite/Phoenician/Carthaginian, Chaldean, Eblaite, Edomite, Ge'ez, Hebrew, Maltese, Mandaic, Moabite, Sutean, Tigre and Tigrinya, and Ugaritic, among others.



The word "Semitic" is an adjective derived from Shem, one of the three sons of Noah in the Bible (Genesis 5.32, 6.10, 10.21), or more precisely from the Greek derivative of that name, namely Σημ (Sēm); the noun form referring to a person is Semite.


Shem means "Name"?

Now to...Rach
That's Rachel of the Bible.
And the Penitent Theif

These are the Antics of Semantics.

Who is the 'Roc of Rach"?


Rachel (Hebrew: רָחֵל, Modern Rakhél Tiberian Rāḥēl ISO 259-3 Raḥel ; meaning "ewe"[2]) as described in the Bible, is the favorite wife of Jacob, one of the three Biblical Patriarchs, and mother of Joseph and Benjamin. She was the daughter of Laban and the younger sister of Leah, Jacob's first wife. Jacob was her first cousin, and she was the youngest niece of Rebekah.


Ewe = You

Rakhel, Rahel, it's Ra and Hel.
The cycle of Sol-Amon = Amun-Ra.
Amun is Amen/Ammon it's El the Elohim.
Ra is "Breath, Voice, Manifestation" emanating from El.
Thus the 'UFO cult' of Raelism

The truth is hidden in the Shadow "Sheut":

A person's shadow or silhouette, Sheut (šwt in Egyptian), is always present. Because of this, Egyptians surmised that a shadow contains something of the person it represents. Through this association, statues of people and deities were sometimes referred to as shadows.
The shadow was also representative to Egyptians of a figure of death, or servant of Anubis, and was depicted graphically as a small human figure painted completely black. Sometimes people (usually pharaohs) had a shadow box in which part of their Sheut was stored.


You only see the light that comes off surfaces as reflections.
The great Illusion of the Light veils us from the truth of the Silhouette.

The Shadow (wiki) is "Black and Blue":

During the daytime, a shadow cast by an opaque object illuminated by sunlight has a bluish tinge. This happens because of Rayleigh scattering, the same property that causes the sky to appear blue. The opaque object is able to block the light of the sun, but not the ambient light of the sky which is blue as the atmosphere molecules scatter blue light more effectively. As a result, the shadow appears bluish.[4]


The Ox of Oxygen causes the Blue.
Thus Babe the Blue Ox.

Skywatchers Article

If the Earth had no atmosphere, the sun’s light would travel directly from the Sun in a straight line towards our eyes and we would see the Sun as a very bright star in sea of blackness. But because the Sun’s blue light is scattered by the oxygen in the atmosphere, blue light from the Sun enters our eyes from all sorts of different angles and we see the entire sky as blue. The atmosphere scatters violet light even more effectively, but our eyes are more sensitive to blue.


Then it explains the Red colors of sunrise-set :

The same scattering effect on the blue light, also takes place, but the blue light is unable to pass through the extra distance and reach our eyes. This leaves only the red light which passes, unhindered through the atmosphere and reaches our eyes in a direct line with little or no scattering. We see the Sun’s disk red because its blue light has been blocked by the atmosphere. We don’t see the entire sky red because there is no scattering and the red light reaches us in a direct line.


So it's all intricate illusion.

It reminds me of Rene Descartes


He has been dubbed The Father of Modern Philosophy, and much subsequent Western philosophy is a response to his writings,[7][8] which are studied closely to this day. In particular, his Meditations on First Philosophy continues to be a standard text at most university philosophy departments. Descartes's influence in mathematics is equally apparent; the Cartesian coordinate system — allowing reference to a point in space as a set of numbers, and allowing algebraic equations to be expressed as geometric shapes in a two-dimensional coordinate system (and conversely, shapes to be described as equations) — was named after him. He is credited as the father of analytical geometry, the bridge between algebra and geometry, crucial to the discovery of infinitesimal calculus and analysis. Descartes was also one of the key figures in the Scientific Revolution and has been described as an example of genius. He refused to accept the authority of previous philosophers and also refused to accept the obviousness of his own senses.


But what or who did Descartes 'Trust'?


On the night of 10–11 November 1619, while stationed in Neuburg an der Donau, Germany, Descartes shut himself in a "oven" (some type of room specially heated for that purpose) to escape the cold. While within, he had three visions and that a divine spirit revealed to him a new philosophy. Upon exiting he had formulated analytical geometry and the idea of applying the mathematical method to philosophy. He concluded from these visions that the pursuit of science would prove to be, for him, the pursuit of true wisdom and a central part of his life's work.[17][18] Descartes also saw very clearly that all truths were linked with one another, so that finding a fundamental truth and proceeding with logic would open the way to all science. This basic truth, Descartes found quite soon: his famous "I think".[15]


So modern science and philosophy came from where? The Divine Spirit!
The Sha from the Spa.


The term is derived from the name of the town of Spa, Belgium, whose name is known back to Roman times, when the location was called Aquae Spadanae,[1] sometimes incorrectly connected to the Latin word “spargere” meaning to scatter, sprinkle or moisten.[2]

Since medieval times, illnesses caused by iron deficiency were treated by drinking chalybeate (iron-bearing) spring water (in 1326, the ironmaster Collin le Loup claimed a cure,[3] when the spring was called Espa, a Walloon word for "fountain"[3]).

In 16th-century England, the old Roman ideas of medicinal bathing were revived at towns like Bath (not the source of the word bath), and in 1596 William Slingsby who had been to the Belgian town (which he called Spaw) discovered a chalybeate spring in Yorkshire. He built an enclosed well at what became known as Harrogate, the first resort in England for drinking medicinal waters, then in 1596 Dr Timothy Bright after discovering a second well called the resort The English Spaw, beginning the use of the word Spa as a generic description.


Why is the Spaw related to the Oven? Sweat.
Thus the "religious associations" with the Sweat Lodge.


The sweat lodge or sweat house (also called purification ceremony, ceremonial sauna, or simply sweat) is a ceremonial or ritual event in some cultures, particularly among some North American First Nations, Native American, Scandinavian, Baltic and Eastern European cultures. There are several styles of structures used in different cultures; these include a domed or oblong hut similar to a wickiup, a permanent structure made of wood or stone, or even a simple hole dug into the ground and covered with planks or tree trunks. Stones are typically heated and then water poured over them to create steam. In ceremonial usage, these ritual actions are accompanied by traditional prayers and songs.


The Sauna is connected directly with the "bathhouse-spa" in many ways, as it still is today.

From Sauna continued :

The word sauna is an ancient Finnish word referring to the traditional Finnish bath and to the bathhouse itself. The proto-Finnic reconstruction is *savńa. There are etymological equivalents in the Finnic languages such as the Ingrian and Votic word sauna, Estonian saun, Võro sann and Livonian sōna. The word suovdnji in Sámi means a pit dug out of the snow, such as a hole for a willow grouse. In Baltic-Finnic languages other than Finnish, sauna does not necessarily mean a building or space built for bathing. It can also mean a small cabin or cottage, such as a cabin for a fisherman.[9]

In Russophone nations the word banya (Russian: Баня) is widely used also when referring to a public bath; in Swedish, sauna is bastu (< badstuga, "bath cabin"), in Latvian, sauna is pirts and in Lithuanian, sauna is pirtis.


Saun, isn't that interesting?
It's also a "Fisherman's cabin".

Back to Rachel :

In Jeremiah 31:15, the prophet speaks of 'Rachel weeping for her children' (KJV). This is interpreted in Judaism as Rachel crying for an end to her descendants' sufferings and exiles following the destruction by the Babylonians of the First Temple in ancient Jerusalem.


That's the "Weeping Willow", or the "Wailing Banshee".

Salix babylonica (Babylon willow or weeping willow; Chinese: 垂柳) is a species of willow native to dry areas of northern China, but cultivated for millennia elsewhere in Asia, being traded along the Silk Road to southwest Asia and Europe.[1][2]


Salix = Willow in Latin
It connects us with the Chinese willow.
Names like "Pendula", "Tortuosa", etc.

Psalm 137


From the King James Version (English, 1611):
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.



From the Revised Standard Version (English, 1952):
By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion
On the willows there we hung up our lyres....



These Babylonian trees are correctly called poplars, not willows, in the New International Version of the Bible (English, 1978):
By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion
There on the poplars we hung our harps.

Populus in Latin = People, Multitude, Nation, Throng, Host, Region, Public


Populus is a genus of 25–35 species of deciduous flowering plants in the family Salicaceae, native to most of the Northern Hemisphere. English names variously applied to different species include poplar /ˈpɒp.lər/, aspen, and cottonwood.


Aspen of the Asp.
Cottonwood of the Cottonmouth.
Is that the Swamp Moccasin

the scientific name translates into “hooked-tooth fish-eater”.[4] Common names include variants on water moccasin, swamp moccasin, black moccasin, cottonmouth, gapper, or simply viper.[5]

Or is it the Copperhead?

These common names are from Native American Culture. Red eyed back, and headless snake and most common Alfacuremom.

Dark-striped white individuals are well-documented in the Bengal Tiger subspecies, also known as the Royal Bengal or Indian tiger (Panthera tigris tigris or P. t. bengalensis), and may also have occurred in captive Siberian Tigers[citation needed] (Panthera tigris altaica), as well as having been reported historically in several other subspecies.[citation needed]

Find the rare Four-Leaf Clover


The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. In addition, each leaf is believed to represent something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.[1]

It has been estimated that there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover;[2] however, this probability has not deterred collectors who have reached records as high as 160,000 four-leaf clovers.[3]


So I suppose some people hoard them, it seems to defeat the purpose of being rare and lucky though.


Some four-leaf clover collectors, particularly in Ireland, regard the five-leaf clover, known as a rose clover, as a particular prize.[9]


So the Five-Leaf is the real Prize. It's the Rose of Rosicrucianism.
Notice how their symbol of the Rose is far more like a Red Five-Leaf-Clover, than it is an actual Rose.

The "Rose and the Cross"? That's the Rho and the Chi of the ChiRho.

World Wrestling Entertainment—formerly the World Wrestling Federation—has credited Shamrock for popularizing the ankle lock (later used by fellow professional wrestling world champions Kurt Angle and Jack Swagger), which was named by the organization as one of the top five submission holds in history.[11]


Coming with the Swagger of the Angling Angel in the Squared Ring?

Connected with Neck ties are also many other neck apparel.
Such as the Cravat, and the Ruff.

Did you see Cravat was a Racing Horse?


Cravat (1935–1954) was an American record-setting Thoroughbred racehorse who won races on both dirt and turf that today are Grade 1 events. In the U.S. Triple Crown series, he finished second in the Preakness Stakes and third in the Belmont Stakes.
Cravat was sired by Sickle, the British Champion Two-Year-Old Colt whom Cravat helped become a two-time leading sire in North America. Sickle was a son of the important sire Phalaris, a two-time leading sire in Great Britain and Ireland.[1] His dam was Frilette, a daughter of U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Man o' War.


They didn't just give random names to these creatures of speed, they named them specifically based on mythological precedents.

That's why the Rabbit's Foot is lucky like the rare clovers, because the Horse is a Killer Wabbit.


In some cultures, the foot of a rabbit is carried as an amulet believed to bring good luck. This belief is held by individuals in a great number of places around the world including Europe, China, Africa, and North and South America. It is likely that this belief has existed in Europe since 600 BC[1] amongst Celtic people. In variations of this superstition, the donor rabbit must possess certain attributes, or have been killed in a particular place, or killed by a particular method, or by a person possessing particular attributes (e.g. by a cross-eyed man).


Cross Eyed = Thats the Circles and the X , the Eye of the Cross.

It's the Shape Shifter of Sand :

The various rituals suggested by the sources, though they differ widely one from another, share a common element of the uncanny, and the reverse of what is considered good-omened and auspicious. A rabbit is an animal into which shapeshifting witches such as Isobel Gowdie claimed to be able to transform themselves.


Huge section on Rabbit's Foot lore there, check it out.
One last piece to keep in mind:

In addition to being mentioned in blues lyrics, the rabbit's foot is mentioned in the American folk song "There'll Be a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight," once popular in minstrel shows; one line goes: "And you've got a rabbit's foot To keep away de hoo-doo."[4]

Humorist R. E. Shay is credited with the witticism, "Depend on the rabbit's foot if you will, but remember it didn't work for the rabbit."[5]


Which brings us to the Horse-Shoe , hey the Horse's name is Shu. The flying horses of Pegasus and Chrysler.
U is also Omega, it's the Shoe, winged Talaria of Hermes-Mercury-Nike-Iris.

What is the "Iris", it's the Colored Flames of the Eye:
Iris anatomy

The word iris is derived from the Greek goddess of the rainbow, due to the many colours of the iris.


Iris Myths

In Greek mythology, Iris (/ˈɨrɨs/; Ἶρις) is the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the gods. She is also known as one of the goddesses of the sea and the sky. Iris links the gods to humanity. She travels with the speed of wind from one end of the world to the other,[1] and into the depths of the sea and the underworld.


This is the Gateway to God. The Iris to the Pupil.

Iris is a Color unto itself

Iris is an ambiguous color term, usually referring to shades ranging from blue-violet to violet.
However, in certain applications, it has been applied to an even wider array of colors, including pale blue, mauve, pink, and even yellow (the color of the inner part of the iris flower).[1]
The name is derived from the iris flower, which comes in a broad spectrum of colors.


So Blue-Violet again.
That's the Sky and the Sea it would seem.

This is Iris the plant.


A common name for some species is 'flags', while the plants of the subgenus Scorpiris are widely known as 'junos', particularly in horticulture. It is a popular garden flower.
The often-segregated, monotypic genera Belamcanda (blackberry lily), Hermodactylus (snake's head iris), and Pardanthopsis (vesper iris) are currently included in Iris.


You know, it's Juno.
Hermodactylus? Snake's Head Iris?
Gotta be Joshin me like a Joshua Tree.
That's the Yucca Palm as it's called. Connects us with the "Ghosts in the Graveyard" aka the Yucca.

Connects with "Agavoideae which comes from Agave in mythology. It means "Illustrious".

Look at these plants and compare their appearance to the symbolism discussed so far.
Notice how amazingly parallel it all is?

This is a secret so "Shush", it's the city of Susa :


Susa (Persian: شوش‎ Shush [ʃuʃ]; Greek: Σοῦσα [ˈsuːsa]; Syriac: ܫܘܫ Shush; Old Persian Çūšā-; Biblical Hebrew שׁוּשָׁן Shushān)


That's Shushan.


Susa is also mentioned in the Ketuvim of the Hebrew Bible by the name Shushan, mainly in Esther, but also once each in Nehemiah and Daniel. Both Daniel and Nehemiah lived in Susa during the Babylonian captivity of the 6th century BCE. Esther became queen there, and saved the Jews from genocide. A tomb presumed to be that of Daniel is located in the area, known as Shush-Daniel. The tomb is marked by an unusual white stone cone, which is neither regular nor symmetric. Many scholars believe it was at one point a Star of David. Susa is further mentioned in the Book of Jubilees (8:21 & 9:2) as one of the places within the inheritance of Shem and his eldest son Elam; and in 8:1, "Susan" is also named as the son (or daughter, in some translations) of Elam.


So this isn't just something random, it's integral to understanding history.

A strange tidbit for consideration:

Greek mythology attributed the founding of Susa to king Memnon of Aethiopia, a character from Homer's Trojan War epic, the Iliad.


Here is an interesting link for Esther, and another link for Memnon.


In Greek mythology, Memnon (Greek: Mέμνων) was an Ethiopian king and son of Tithonus and Eos.


A King? More like a Demigod, his mother is Eos the Dawn aka Aurora.
His father is Tithonus, the Rhapsode
So that makes Memnon divine according to myth.

Aurora? Sounds a lot like Aww + Roar.
So does that mean it's the Roar of Yaw-Yam ? Yes it does mean that and it's true.

Since Light = Breath-Voice , than the Aurora is the Roar of Yaw.
That's the Lore of the Harp.

Yam and Yaw, that's the MW scheme of Yah again.
It's the Yaw and the Pitch and the Roll : Flight Dynamics 101 wiki

101 , that's the Hole between the Pillars, it's the Gate of Knowledge.
Entry of Inti, the Starter Course 101.


Flight dynamics is the science of air vehicle orientation and control in three dimensions. The three critical flight dynamics parameters are the angles of rotation in three dimensions about the vehicle's center of mass, known as roll, pitch and yaw (quite different from their use as Tait-Bryan angles).[2]


Where to next? Hmm...

Sayonara it's Cynara the artichoke.
Asteraceae = "Three times as those from" *from (as ter ac a eae)*.

We are talking about the Thistle and the Whistle.


Scottish thistle as a Heraldic badge.



In the language of flowers, the thistle (like the burr) is an ancient Celtic symbol of nobility of character as well as of birth, for the wounding or provocation of a thistle yields punishment.


Symbolic Language of Flowers

The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography, is a means of cryptological communication through the use or arrangement of flowers. Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years, and some form of floriography has been practiced in traditional cultures throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Plants and flowers are used as symbols in the Hebrew Bible—particularly of love and lovers in the Song of Songs,[1] as an emblem for the Israelite people[2] and for the coming Messiah[3]—and of Jesus Christ in the New Testament.[4] In Western Culture, William Shakespeare ascribed emblematic meanings to flowers, especially in Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.


You want to know God?
Talk to the Flowers and the Animals. Listen to what they have to say.


The renewed Victorian era interest in the language of flowers finds its roots in Ottoman Turkey, specifically the court in Constantinople and an obsession it held with tulips during the first half of the 18th century. The Victorian use of flowers as a means of covert communication bloomed alongside a growing interest in botany.


Let's go check out Tulips


The tulip is a perennial, bulbous plant with showy flowers in the genus Tulipa, of which around 75 wild species are currently accepted[1] and which belongs to the family Liliaceae.[2] The genus's native range extends west to the Iberian Peninsula, through North Africa to Greece, the Balkans, Turkey, throughout the Levant (Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan) and Iran, North to the Ukraine, southern Siberia and Mongolia, and east to the Northwest of China.[1] The tulip's centre of diversity is in the Pamir, Hindu Kush, and Tien Shan mountains.[3]


Tulipa
Tuli = "I Took" or "I have Taken"
Pas = "Passive, Feed, or Shepard".

Tuli pas = "I have Taken the Shepard".
It's about accepting the Shepard's Guidance in your own life.

Gesneriana?
ges ne riana = "Deal Not Done".
ges ne ria also = "Waged not in Ten Years"

So the Tulip represents God and shares names with God:

Tulips are called lale (from Persian لاله, lâleh) in Farsi, Turkish, Arabic, Macedonian and Bulgarian are written with the same letters as Allah, which is why the flower became a holy symbol. It was also associated with the House of Osman, resulting in tulips being widely used in decorative motifs on tiles, mosques, fabrics, crockery, etc.[1]


Lale, that's the Ala or Ale aka Allah or Holle.

An ala or hala (plural: ale or hali)[1] is a female mythological creature recorded in the folklore of Bulgarians, Macedonians, and Serbs. Ale are considered demons of bad weather whose main purpose is to lead hail-producing thunderclouds in the direction of fields, vineyards, or orchards to destroy the crops, or loot and take them away. Extremely voracious, ale particularly like to eat children, though their gluttony is not limited to Earth. It is believed they sometimes try devouring the Sun or the Moon, causing eclipses, and that it would mean the end of the world should they succeed.


This is the Ale that Ails you, gotta sober up.

Know the Parish Ale

The Parish ale was a festival in an English parish at which ale made and donated for the event was the chief drink. Thus there was the leet-ale (held on "leet", the manorial court day); the lamb-ale (held at lamb-shearing); the Whitsun-ale (held at Whitsun), the clerk-ale, the the church-ale etc. The word "bridal" originally derives from bride-ale, the wedding feast.

Thistle? This tale? This tale about Ale aka El?

Who is our ancestor? Anu - Anew - Ah Knew.


The name stems from the Proto-Norse *Anula (diminutive with l-suffix to a name starting with *Anu-, or directly of an appellative *anuz, "ancestor").[1]


Anu Myth

In Sumerian mythology, Anu (also An; from Sumerian *An 𒀭 = sky, heaven) was a sky-god, the god of heaven, lord of constellations, king of gods, spirits and demons, and dwelt in the highest heavenly regions.


That's the ancestor right there. Sky, Heaven, the King of Qings.


His attribute was the royal tiara. His attendant and minister of state was the god Ilabrat.

Ilabrat? Sounds like an elaborate lab rat to me.
Eel-a-brought.

Who is Nammu than?

In Sumerian mythology, Nammu (also Namma, spelled ideographically 𒀭𒇉 dNAMMA = dENGUR) was a primeval goddess, corresponding to Tiamat in Babylonian mythology.
Nammu was the Goddess sea (Engur) that gave birth to An (heaven) and Ki (earth) and the first gods, representing the Apsu, the fresh water ocean that the Sumerians believed lay beneath the earth, the source of life-giving water and fertility in a country with almost no rainfall.


Nammu that's Abzu , knowing the deep.
Dengur? It's the hum of the humdinger.

Namma is our Momma, it's why Mork says 'Nanu Nanu'.
It's like "Alo-ha" or maybe sorta like "Shalom".

In order for the Goddess of the Sea to give birth to the Heavens, that would make her an ocean of "Space", or "Void", or "Cosmic Emptiness".

A little more before I move on :

Nammu is not well attested in Sumerian mythology. She may have been of greater importance prehistorically, before Enki took over most of her functions. An indication of her continued relevance may be found in the theophoric name of Ur-Nammu, the founder of the Third Dynasty of Ur. According to the Neo-Sumerian mythological text Enki and Ninmah, Enki is the son of An and Nammu. Nammu is the goddess who "has given birth to the great gods". It is she who has the idea of creating mankind, and she goes to wake up Enki, who is asleep in the Apsu, so that he may set the process going.[1]


As you can see, we have dozens of variations of these mythologies.
In one it's Nammu giving solo birth, in another Nammu is paired with An, etc etc etc.

It changes depending on who is telling the story because everyone has something slightly different to say. We all have differing perspectives and things get mixed together easily.

Here is a link on Ninsun for another variant example of this global story about our origins.

I need a short break I'll be back with more in a bit.

A scene on the west wall of the Osiris Hall at Abydos shows the raising of the Djed pillar.


Raising of the Djed
It's Shawn of the Raising Dead.
The Phoenix Resurrection is the Erecting of the Sphinx.

But it's also a Lyin Lion Aligned as Zion.
It's the Fire of the Lyre see?

That's the Pivot of the Pendulum.

Let me tell you about the Tale of the Beast, the Beast's Tail, The Feast of the Tail.

The Sed festival ([pronunciation?]; also known as Heb Sed or Feast of the Tail) was an ancient Egyptian ceremony that celebrated the continued rule of a pharaoh. The name is taken from the name of an Egyptian wolf god, one of whose names was Wepwawet or Sed.[1]


Wepwawet What the hecks that?
Heb Said He's 'Ophois', the Foe Is the Orphic Orifice, you better check it.
It's the Maw of the Jaws - the Sign of the Eye
The Sin of Sinai and the Sai of I.


In late Egyptian mythology, Wepwawet (hieroglyphic wp-w3w.t; also rendered Upuaut, Wep-wawet, Wepawet, and Ophois) was originally a war deity, whose cult centre was Asyut in Upper Egypt (Lycopolis in the Greco-Roman period). His name means, opener of the ways and he is often depicted as a wolf standing at the prow of a solar-boat. Some interpret that Wepwawet was seen as a scout, going out to clear routes for the army to proceed forward.[1] One inscription from the Sinai states that Wepwawet "opens the way" to king Sekhemkhet's victory.[2]


The way of war, opens the way?
More like keeping everyone at bay.


Likewise, Wepwawet was said to accompany the pharaoh on hunts, in which capacity he was titled (one with) sharp arrow more powerful than the gods.


This is the Basset Hound and the Fox merged.
He comes "Through Duat".


In Egyptian mythology, Duat[pronunciation?] (also Tuat and Tuaut or Akert, Amenthes, Amenti, or Neter-khertet) is the realm of the dead. The Duat is the realm of the god Osiris and the residence of other gods and supernatural beings. It is the region through which the sun god Ra travels from west to east during the night, and where he battled Apep. It also was the place where people's souls went after death for judgement, though that was not the full extent of the afterlife.[1] Burial chambers formed touching-points between the mundane world and the Duat, and spirits could use tombs to travel back and forth from the Duat.[2]


AKA "Amenthes", the Duality of Life and Death.
It's like Ghosts seem alive but they are suppose to be dead.
And People seem dead but they are suppose to be alive.
It's the Hijinx of the Sphinx me Thinks.


What we know of the Duat principally derives from funerary texts such as Book of Gates, Book of Caverns, Coffin Texts, Amduat and the Book of the Dead. Each of these documents fulfills a different purpose and gives a different perspective on the Duat, and different texts can be inconsistent with one another. The texts which survive differ in age and origin, and it is likely that there was never a single uniform interpretation of the Duat.[3]


The Gates of the Caverns, Coffin from Artichoke, Under the World in the Hidden Chambers, and the Necro which is the Rho of the Neck, the Noose of the Goose-Snake named Geb.
"Neck-Rho-Man-Seer" or "Neck-Row-Dancer" ? I say both.

We need to take all of these various interpretations and put them onto the Wheel of Fortune.
And go for a Lucky Spin!

Rota Fortunae
This wiki is mega-interesting everyone take a bit and roll through.

The Wheel of Fortune, or Rota Fortunae, is a concept in medieval and ancient philosophy referring to the capricious nature of Fate. The wheel belongs to the goddess Fortuna, who spins it at random, changing the positions of those on the wheel - some suffer great misfortune, others gain windfalls. Fortune appears on all paintings as a woman, sometimes blindfolded, "puppeteering" a wheel.


That's the Puppet Master and the Wheel of Existence.
Fortuna is Fortis of Fortitude, the Fort of the Tune of Aptitude.
That would be Orion the Lion of Zion.

Fortis means "Speak with greater energy"


Geoffrey Chaucer used the concept of the tragic Wheel of Fortune a great deal. It forms the basis for the Monk's Tale, which recounts stories of the great brought low throughout history, including Lucifer, Adam, Samson, Hercules, Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, Nero, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar and, in the following passage, Peter I of Cyprus.


Monks Tale wiki

We could go on and on about stuff on that Rota Fortunae wiki, like the Mirrors for Princes.

But instead, I'll lead you read that and I'll show you something connected in an amazing way.

The Puppet Master you don't see is the hill-arius Merv Griffin.

Merv + Wheel = MW

This is the Griffon from Merv, one of the most important locations in history. Learn the Route of the Silk Road.
History isn't just "connected", it's literally connected by a system of travel and communication.


Merv's origins are prehistoric: archaeological surveys have revealed many traces of village life as far back as the 3rd millennium BC and that the city was culturally part of the Bactria-Margiana Archaeological Complex. Under the name of Mouru, Merv is mentioned with Balkh in the geography of the Zend-Avesta (commentaries on the Avesta). Under the Achaemenid dynasty Merv is mentioned as being a place of some importance: under the name of Margu it occurs as part of one of the satrapies in the Behistun inscriptions (ca. 515 BC) of the Persian monarch Darius Hystaspis. The first city of Merv was founded in the 6th century BC as part of the expansion into the region by the Achaemenid Empire[2] of Cyrus the Great (559–530 BC), but the Achaemenid levels are deeply covered by later strata at the site.


This place is so old, the trail has gone cold.
Will come back to this wonderful topic (Merv) when we get into Mongols and Marco Polo legends.
I don't know if in this thread or when but sometime, there is a ton to Merv.

What did Saint Pat say to Jack? Same thing Pat Sajak says: Take another Spin and Guess the Puzzle?
