I Thirst for a Drink from that Spirit of Santa Sophia....
How I long for Her Sweet Savory Delight. She is the Spice of Life After All!

The wine was produced by a grape known to the Romans as vitis apiana, with the root of apiana being the Latin for bees. Even today bees are strongly attracted to sugary pulp of Fiano grapes and are a prevalent sight in the vineyards around Avellino.[9]

In the opinion of wine expert Oz Clarke, well made examples of Fiano from favorable vintages should have a fair amount of weight on the palate with a floral aroma and notes of honey and spice with the potential to continue improving with bottle age.[11]
The Italian wine Fiano di Avellino is often characterized as a pale straw colored wine with strong aromas of spice and floral notes. On the palate, those aroma notes are often present along with honey and nutty hazelnut notes.[9]

Hazelnut ? No way! I see beyond this charade!
Behind this Haze of El it is Nut's Parade!

Nut (/nʌt/ or /nuːt/)[1] or Neuth (/nuːθ/ or /njuːθ/; also spelled Nuit or Newet) was the goddess of the sky in the Ennead of Egyptian mythology. She was seen as a star-covered nude woman arching over the earth,[2] or as a cow.

I Knew It! It's Newet! Call me the Sleuth of Neuth seeking the Truth about the Real Ruth on the Roof.

She has four or five children: Osiris, Set, Isis, Nephthys, and sometimes Horus. Her name is translated to mean 'sky'[3][4] and she is considered one of the oldest deities among the Egyptian pantheon,[5] with her origin being found on the creation story of Heliopolis. She was originally the goddess of the nighttime sky, but eventually became referred to as simply the sky goddess. Her headdress was the hieroglyphic of part of her name, a pot, which may also symbolize the uterus. Mostly depicted in nude human form, Nut was also sometimes depicted in the form of a cow whose great body formed the sky and heavens, a sycamore tree, or as a giant sow, suckling many piglets (representing the stars).

Nut is also the barrier separating the forces of chaos from the ordered cosmos in the world. She was pictured as a woman arched on her toes and fingertips over the earth; her body portrayed as a star-filled sky. Nut’s fingers and toes were believed to touch the four cardinal points or directions of north, south, east, and west.

Because of her role in saving Osiris, Nut was seen as a friend and protector of the dead, who appealed to her as a child appeals to its mother: "O my Mother Nut, stretch Yourself over me, that I may be placed among the imperishable stars which are in You, and that I may not die." Nut was thought to draw the dead into her star-filled sky, and refresh them with food and wine: "I am Nut, and I have come so that I may enfold and protect you from all things evil."[14]

Nuit (Thelema) for further reading.

Nuit[pronunciation?] (alternatively Nu, Nut, or Nuith) is a goddess in Thelema, the speaker in the first Chapter of The Book of the Law, the sacred text written or received in 1904 by Aleister Crowley.
Nut is an Egyptian sky goddess who leans over her husband/brother, Geb, the Earth God. She is usually depicted as a naked woman who is covered with stars. She represents the All, pure potentiality both as it flowers into the physical universe and as it resides beyond embodiment.

I should have Newt

Dialectal English and Scots also has the word ask (also awsk, esk in Scots[5]) used for both newts and wall lizards, from Old English āþexe, from Proto-Germanic *agiþahsijǭ literally "lizard-badger" (compare German Eidechse and Ehse; *agi- is ultimately cognate with Greek ὄφις, from Proto-Indo-European *ogʷʰis[6]). Latin had the name stellio for a type of spotted newt, now used for species of the Stellagama genus. Ancient Greek had the name κορδύλος, presumably for the water newt (immature newt, eft).[7] German has Molch, from Middle High German mol, olm, like the English term of unknown etymology.

Newts are also known as Tritones (viz., named for the mythological Triton) in historical literature, and "triton" remains in use as common name in some Romance languages, in Greek and in Russian. The systematic name Tritones was introduced alongside Pleurodelinae by Tschudi in 1838, based on the type genus named Triton by Laurenti in 1768. Laurenti's Triton was renamed to Triturus ("Triton-tail") by Rafinesque in 1815.[8] Tschudi's Pleurodelinae is based on the type genus Pleurodeles (ribbed newt) named by Michahelles in 1830 (the name meaning "having prominent ribs", formed from πλευρά "ribs" and δῆλος "conspicuous").

"Tritones" ? Let's try Tri Tones because I'm talking about the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone of Scone:
Triple Goddess
Triple Deity History

Seems like I have Lachesis Catechesis from the Tone of that Fork I Hear on my Ear

Lachesis is a genus of venomous pitvipers found in forested areas of Central and South America. The generic name refers to one of the Three Fates in Greek mythology who determined the length of the thread of life.[2] Three species are currently recognized.[3]

The "Bushmaster"?

Yeah, That's the Burning Bush, the Master of the Aster *
Lachesis (myth)

In Greek mythology, Lachesis (/ˈlækɪsɪs/; Greek: Λάχεσις, Lakhesis, "disposer of lots", from λαγχάνω, lanchano, "to obtain by lot, by fate, or by the will of the gods") was the second of the Three Fates, or Moirai: Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos. Normally seen clothed in white, Lachesis is the measurer of the thread woven by Clotho's spindle, and in some texts, determines Destiny, or thread of life.[1] Her Roman equivalent was Decima. Lachesis was the apportioner, deciding how much time for life was to be allowed for each person or being.[2] She measured the thread of life with her rod. She is also said to choose a person's destiny after a thread was measured. In mythology, it is said that she appears with her sisters within three days of a baby's birth to decide its fate.

Ok, that's Greek translations, I Spy a Hidden message in Latin

'La Che Sis' ? It's a little messed up but it could possibly be roughly taken as (if you were talking back then):

"Read: You Are (of) Cherubim"

Even if that's a mistake translation it's ultimately wicked!
It's Sera the Serrated Seraph of the Serene Sierra Scene I be See'n.

I so take that back, it didn't work out.

Can you hear Lachesis muta ?

The bushmaster snake is the antagonist in the tenth show of the old time radio show Escape. The show's title was "A Shipment of Mute Fate", and starred William Conrad and Raymond Lawrence. It was broadcast on 15 October 1947. The story was also adapted for Suspense starring Jack Kelly, broadcast on January 6, 1957. Jack killed a bushmaster in the film Romancing the Stone when seeking shelter in a crashed plane.

The following weapons and military vehicles are named after this viper:
M242 Bushmaster, a chain gun manufactured by Alliant Techsystems;
Bushmaster IMV, an Australian infantry mobility vehicle;
A variant of the amphibious Landing Vehicle Tracked introduced in 1944, the LVT-3 Bushmaster.

Romancing the Stone
Sequal : Jewel of the Nile

That's funny, I actually recognize those flicks, slightly entertaining but a bit cheesy.

Ok so I gotta make an Escape for real this time.
Hopefully for a little while longer than the 1minute the last attempt lasted.
But there is so much to learn!!!

How women's wisdom was lost
Papyrus shreds reveal there was a time when female deities were fundamental to popular belief. Yet ancient geopolitics caused them to be sidelined

A snapshot of life on the streets of Oxyrhynchus reveals that women's views commanded more respect 2,000 years ago.

A mummified crocodile in the back streets of Oxford might not be an obvious guardian for one of life's great mysteries. But some 2,000-year-old treacle brown remains made up of recycled scraps of Egyptian papyrus, torn up to encase the reptile, hide hard evidence of a substantial historical cover-up. Now stored in 100-year-old kerosene cans and Huntley & Palmers biscuit tins, the ancient fragments were originally dumped as rubbish in ancient Oxyrhynchus (the town of the sharp-nosed fish). Their salvation, by two British archaeologists from 1896, who heard that locals were using the papyri fragments as organic fertiliser, was a godsend: these unpromising shreds rewrite history.

So far just 5% of the million or so fragments have been translated; but they embody the concerns and priorities of the man (and woman) on the street from the first century BC to the fourth century AD. Here is an unofficial snapshot of life at the birth of the modern world. Crucially, this was a time and place where Woman Wisdom, Sophia in ancient Greek, walked the streets. We find her name again and again in Jewish, Christian and pagan papyrus texts. Sophia – a mystical female presence whose appearance is only fleeting in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament – was clearly once a household name and a fixture in everyday lives.

I once spent a lot of time trying to find the hidden meanings behind the female characters in the biblical text, there is more to the story.

Ish, you are one of the most prodigious readers I know. Have you every studied the esoteric arts? "The Mysteries"? The underlying meaning behind all religious manuscripts, excepting maybe Islam (i haven't studied up on that aspect yet) contain the same hidden meanings and concepts.

itll likely help to start with Masonism and move to Rosicrucianism. I started with Manly Hall's work that i was referenced to by our old friend on the AR forum. It is a very broad overview.

Islam is part of the Abrahamic sect, Aka Christianity and Judaism.

The other culture do not treat women badly, it just that it never gave them a chance until the last couple of century. You could say the same about Western society.

In the aspect of deities, Easter Religions have many females deities at the top level and these were established in ancient times.

I'm reading a book called "The Fall: The Insanity of the Ego in Human History and the Dawning of A New Era" by Steve Taylor. Its basically a book detailing the neolithic and paleolithic practices of peoples compared to those of empire building peoples. The former emphasizing the feminine divine, or at least the feminine was balanced in comparison to the empire builders, who were male dominated. He says that war was almost non existent besides in isolated occurrences. Also,that the pre-fall/matriachal/neolithic cultures were egalitarian. I don't know enough about this subject to make any informed comments on the veracity of these claims, but I found it interesting and related to the topic at hand. I think a more popular book with a similar topic is "When God Was a Woman" by Merlin Stone.

Also Margaret Barker's work sheds great light on this subject from a "judeo-christian" perspective. One aspect of her work that I find particularly interesting is that of "the dew". Or the anointing oil. We know of the story of Mary pouring the vial of nard on Jesus. This symbolizes the feminine, or wisdom, as it is supposed to come from the Tree of Life, which is Wisdom.

When I think of Dew my mind goes to Psalm 133

1A Song of Ascents; of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

2It is like the precious oil upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard; that came down upon the skirt of his garments;

3Like the dew of Hermon, that cometh down upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

The dew or anointing oil, is the symbol for the meshiach, or christos. The anointing. The anointing is a feminine aspect. And it is associated in this passage with the high priesthood, and also that of "brothers dwelling in unity". Back to "The Fall", and the topic of pre-fall peoples, or before the rise of ego-centric male dominated culture, and that culture would be one that would be described as "brothers dwelling in unity".

Something that might be of interest as well, is that even in Viking culture (which is often considered male dominated), certain women were held in very high regard as seers.

A vǫlva or völva (Old Norse and Icelandic respectively (the same word, except that the second letter evolved from ǫ to ö); plural vǫlvur (O.N.), völvur (Icel.), sometimes anglicized vala; also spákona or spækona) is a shamanic seeress in Norse paganism, and a recurring motif in Norse mythology.


Völur practiced seiðr, spá and galdr, practices which encompassed shamanism, sorcery, prophecy and other forms of indigenous magic. Seiðr in particular had connotations of ergi (unmanliness).
Historical and mythological depictions of völur show that they were held in high esteem and believed to possess such powers that even the father of the gods, Odin himself, consulted a völva to learn what the future had in store for the gods. Such an account is preserved in the Völuspá which roughly translates to "Prophecy of the Völva". In addition to the unnamed seeress (possibly identical with Heiðr) in Völuspá, other examples of völur in Norse literature include Gróa in Svipdagsmál, Þórbjörgr in the Saga of Eric the Red and Huld in for instance Ynglinga saga.

So even in an ancient culture which was primarily patriarchal, we can still see how certain women in the community were revered for their spiritual insights. I don't think this has been altogether abandoned in modern times, as we still see matriarchal cultures today, and the ancient seeress sort of lives on in the form of psychics, mediums, priestesses, etc. Even within the church, women can attain high office within certain denominations and have become bishops within the anglican church.

Thank you for the most pertinent Link, maybe I shall reveal the Secret of Hot Pink?

The völur were referred to by many names. The Old Norse word vǫlva means "wand carrier" or "carrier of a magic staff",[1] and it continues Proto-Germanic *walwōn, which is derived from a word for "wand" (Old Norse vǫlr).[2] Vala, on the other hand, is a literary form based on Völva.[2]
A spákona or spækona (with an Old English cognate, spæwīfe[citation needed]) is a "seer, one who sees", from the Old Norse word spá or spæ referring to prophesying and which is cognate with the present English word "spy," continuing Proto-Germanic *spah- and the Proto-Indo-European root *(s)peḱ (to see, to observe) and consequently related to Latin speccio ("sees") and Sanskrit spáçati and páçyati ("sees", etc.).[3]
A practitioner of seiðr is a seiðkona (female) or a seiðmaðr (male).

That Seer who Spy the I?
That Speaker of the Spá who Swoon the Wall to Fall for All?
The Seiðr of Sleipnir ?
Well I'm a Guy, so call me by this Silver Sign:

In Norse mythology, Sleipnir (Old Norse "slippy"[1] or "the slipper"[2]) is an eight-legged horse.

That's the "Door of The" Ruby Slippers I presume.

Operation Slipper is the Australian Defence Force (ADF) contribution to the war in Afghanistan.

They were originally the Silver Slippers
All sorts of things, Pink Bunny Rabbit Slippers

(And 100's of other references).

As presented in its earliest recordings, "Golden Slippers" is a stirring and proud song, considerably different than its rather jaunty parody. In it, the lead singer asks the choir what kind of finery they will wear in going to join the Heavenly choir. The lyrics for the first stanza are:
What kind of shoes you goin’ to wear? / Golden slippers! / What kind of shoes you goin’ to wear? / Golden slippers!
Golden slippers I’m bound to wear, / To outshine the glittering sun. / Oh, yes, yes, yes my Lord, / I’m going to join the Heavenly choir. / Yes, yes, yes my Lord, / Soldier of the cross.

These Slippers are the Flaming Horse in the Sky you Hop on and Ride through the Endless Night!

Pink Lady's Slipper, found in Bristol, Vermont

Lady's slipper orchids (also known as lady slipper orchids or slipper orchids) are orchids in the subfamily Cypripedioideae

"The Idea of the Sickle Rafter in the Sky"

It's the "Pink Fortress in the Sky", the Pink Lady B-17 Flying Fortress

The Pink Lady is the nickname of a B-17G Flying Fortress bomber. It is one of the few B-17s still in flying condition, and the only flying survivor to have seen action in Europe during World War II.

A "Formation Carpet Bomber", the icon has a few names including "Lucky Lady".

Pink Lady (musical) inspired heavily by myth.

The maidens in a European village not far from Paris are frightened, but secretly thrilled, by a mysterious man called Satyr, who kisses and embraces them if they venture into the woods to pick mushrooms. Lucien, an engaged young man arrives, soon followed by his fiancée, Angele, and her idiot-savant cousin, Bebe.

Two Greek statues, one of Aphrodite, the other of a satyr, have mysteriously disappeared from his shop.
At the Ball of the Nymphs and Satyrs, the Pink Lady resolves all of the complications,

Satyr, Lucien, Angele, Desiree and Bebe etc? Cut some of the quote out just for some key pieces of info.
Also note the famous actress: Hazel Dawn

I need to take the Pink Lady out for a Cocktail, if I ever get Lucky.

The Pink Lady is a classic gin-based cocktail with a long history. Its pink color is due to adding grenadine.

That Gin is the Djinn of Jen, call em the Grenadier of Grenadine

The name grenadine originated from the French word grenade which means pomegranate, with pomme meaning apple and granate derived from the Italian word for seeds. Grenadine was originally prepared from pomegranate juice, sugar, and water.[1]

Apple Seeds it Seems? Look Between the Beams to See what I Mean.

The Mott's brand "Rose's"

That would be our Ma, Ma'at

Maat or ma'at (thought to have been pronounced *[muʔ.ʕat]),[1] also spelled māt or mayet, was the ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice. Maat was also personified as a goddess regulating the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation.

Mayet? Mother May-It Be! The Rose that Arose in the Pose of a Cross, ask Ross about my Prose.

In German "Ross" or "Roß" means "horse".

Not Far From Grace Now...

Divine grace is a theological term present in many religions. It has been defined as the divine influence which operates in humans to regenerate and sanctify, to inspire virtuous impulses, and to impart strength to endure trial and resist temptation;[1] and as an individual virtue or excellence of divine origin.[2]

Grace (Christianity)
These are the Gates of Her Grace
Don't be Afraid, the Horror Film Grace is just Fiction.
But it is True, that Love is Undying.

Now you Know I got Charmed and Charred by the Charity of the Graces and Why I have Gratitude for Gratiae:

In Greek mythology, a Charis (Ancient Greek: Χάρις, pronounced [kʰáris]) or Grace is one of three or more minor goddesses of charm, beauty, nature, human creativity, and fertility, together known as the Charites /ˈkærɨtiːz/ (Χάριτες, [kʰáritɛːs]) or Graces. The usual list, from youngest to oldest is Aglaea ("Splendor"), Euphrosyne ("Mirth"), and Thalia ("Good Cheer"). In Roman mythology they were known as the Gratiae, the "Graces". In some variants, Charis was one of the Graces and was not the singular form of their name.


Aglaea /əˈɡliːə/ or Aglaïa /əˈɡlaɪə/ (Greek: Ἀγλαΐα "splendor, brilliant, shining one")

Euphrosyne Sign of Euphoria

Euphrosyne is also the Goddess of Joy or Mirth


In Greek mythology, Thalia (Θαλία / Thalía, "Abundance")
The Greek word thalia is an adjective applied to banquets, meaning rich, plentiful, luxuriant and abundant.[1]

One last little part before I dart:

From Pink Lady (Cocktail Drink):

In New Orleans this version was also known as Pink Shimmy.

Shimmer from the Shammy it's Chamois

Often lemon juice is added to the basic form as well and in that case the Pink Lady is identical to another cocktail called Clover Club. Some authors argue that the "real" or "original" pink lady differs from the Clover Club by adding applejack to mix, which provides the Pink Lady with its own distinct flavour. [3][4]

I don't have any applejack but I do have a sprinkle of a link of:
Mad Jack the Pirate

Which apparently was pretty big but I had never heard about it until searching for the Pink Lady, and look what I found:

Often noticed by fans and viewers of the show is its similarity to the BBC comedy series Blackadder.


That actually ties in because there is a highly complex chain of research I call "Black Adder vs White Adder" that I still need to post sometime soon, it's really interesting stuff imo.

Anyways, here is what I found:

Sandy Fox .... Magic Pink Fairy

It's an actress named "Sandy Fox" which is probably a fake name considering the age of the person doing the acting.

Red Fox
Fennec Fox

So this Pink Lady is "Foxy", and hard to get.

So I must be on the hunt for the Pink Diamond like Inspector Jacques Clouseau in the Pink Panther

Despite its use in the titles of most of the films of the series, "Pink Panther" is not the Clouseau character, but a large and valuable pink diamond which is first shown in the first film in the series.[1]


The Daria-i-Noor (Persian: دریای نور‎ which means "Sea of light" in Persian; (also spelled Darya-ye Noor) is one of the largest cut diamonds in the world, weighing an estimated 182 carats (36 g). Its colour, pale pink, is one of the rarest to be found in diamonds. The Darya-ye Noor is now preserved in the Treasury of National Jewels in the Museum of the Central Bank of Iran in Tehran.[1]

That would have to be the Pink Fortress of the Sha, that Lucky Pink Lady.

This is the Lily of the Valley

Convallaria majalis /ˌkɒnvəˈlɛəriə məˈdʒeɪlɨs/,[1] commonly known as the Lily of the Valley, is a sweetly scented (and highly poisonous) woodland flowering plant that is native throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere in Asia, Europe and in the southern Appalachian Mountains in the United States.

It is possibly the only species in the genus Convallaria (or one of two or three, if C. keiskei and C. transcaucasica are recognised as separate species). In the APG III system, the genus is placed in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Nolinoideae (formerly the family Ruscaceae[2]). It was formerly placed in its own family Convallariaceae, and, like many lilioid monocots, before that in the lily family Liliaceae.

Asp is everywhere in these links I am sharing, so is Ask, Asc, Ash, etc.
I'll do stuff with Emerald later it's pretty extensive...

No offense, Muzzleflash, it's all just probably going right over my head...but your posts here for the most part make little sense to me.

Hmmm, fascinating and neat find, Storm. Going to read the whole thing now and the whole suppressed feminine is many shades of true and, by gosh, I wouldn't mind being ruled by women at all (and frequently even pay for it... kidding).

But the wag in me has to say, "How did women lose their perceived wisdom?"

Why, they opened their mouths, of course!

***DISCLAIMER** This is just a stupid joke and I am serious about wanting women leaders... and Sophia and I are down with each other and my best friends are Wicken, etc. so please just ignore this stupid post and remember me as my better posts portray me, please.

Very interesting. According the the article, the feminine deities started to lose power in the bronze age. What happened between the Neolithic and the bronze? Farming, civilzation, religions? Power struggles and the women lost because they were not warriors and physically equal, maybe? Wisdom was not the force needed at the time but maybe we have come to it now.

My theory was the in ancient time, the society was more social.

Men had their jobs they were good at, Women had their jobs they were good at.

Then came the materialistic greed age and new societal structure that encouraged this neediness and a price for it(where before it was equal duty, you give me this and ill give u this).

Men started controlling everything out of this because of their physical dominance. Remember Brute force was regarded as something great in those times. So Women at that time, needed something stronger to protect them from other Brute force, eventually as time passed they became pretty much a property to be protected.

I really like this theory. With the genesis of agriculture came a more rigid hierarchy that ultimately became a pyramid with only a few elite truly benefiting from surplus. That materialistic greed age you spoke of I feel started here. (Please note, I'm not advocating a hunter-gatherer or subsistence pastoral existence as something we should aspire to, but these "more primitive" means of getting by do lend themselves more to egalitarianism). I think it is absolutely spot on to say that when there was a social dependence upon or even necessity for a more organized and rigid hierarchy that brute strength would give some one an edge in terms of facilitating dominance within that paradigm. Even further (as you mentioned) as that became more entrenched, women would need to rely upon men to keep them safe from other men; and so women were de-facto relegated to an inferior position, because they were forced into veritable supplication to men for protection by the social order itself.
