Rabbi Ba’al Shivah Reveals the Secret of Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream.

nebuchadnezzar

I’m not going to bother proving every single point, part of this is going to be preliminary research for a “fictional” vignette for Shivastus Solomonicus.  Many of you know that I am rather gifted at kabbalah, and an expert on Jewish Exegesis among some of my other talents.  So it would not behoove me to explain everything to novitiates.  I’m going to talk to the people that at least know something.  It had never really piqued my interests before but recently I have been studying Pythagoras, and realized how much of an influence he had on Plato.  What we know about Plato is actually completely inextricable from what we know about Pythagoras.  We literally can’t tell where one ends and the other begins.  We don’t know why Pythagoras broke his own vows of secrecy in order to teach Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates so many of the highest level initiatory secrets.  Did they have their own secret society outside of the Pythagorean math cults?

Of further interest is that we see none of the layered meaning and nuanced coded sophistry that we see in the Old and New Testament in the Quran or the Hadith.  While it attempts to mimic the verbiage and typography it is completely flat and one dimensional, given to a single understanding and meaning.  The Quran and Hadith are obviously the work of a different inferior perspective.  Whoever wrote them have no understanding of the Jewish practice of imbedding layered meaning into text through the practice of PaRDeS a phonetic homage to paradise.  To understand is to be in the Promised Land.

There is no doubt in my mind that the people that wrote the bible possessed the secrets for creating the major civilizations that were “blessed by God” in the form of their becoming World Powers at one time or another.  For the math cults every mathematical formula was a name of god which you didn’t earn the right to hear until you had passed psychological and moral tests.  You were in fact always being tested.  You were never allowed to speak a name of god to one who hadn’t earned the right to hear it.  The bible was written as a secret history for these people who were constantly running west away from the tyrannical people that would steal their secrets and destroy them.

Now I actually stumbled on this information when I was researching a quote by Plato: “Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.”   It just so happens that it comes from a part of the Republic in which he was discussing the 5 Regimes that signal the Cycles of Decline of a Civilization.  According to Plato the most ideal form of Government was the Aristocracy with the Philosopher King as Ruler.  After a certain period of time had elapsed and a certain number of mistakes had been made this would lead to a degradation of Government and ruler ship into the form of “Timocracy” ruled by a Warrior King.  So we started with Solomon and we Devolved into David, what we see immediately is that the Judeo-Christian religion was interested in reversing the process of decay.

A timocracy (timē, “price, worth” and -κρατία -kratia, “rule”)[1] is a state where only property owners may participate in government. The more extreme forms of timocracy, where power derives entirely from wealth with no regard for social or civic responsibility, may shift in their form and become a plutocracy where the wealthy and powerful use their power to entrench their wealth.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timocracy

Which again would devolve into Oligarchy, or ruling families.  In this Regime the middle class is gone and you have the haves and the have nots.  There are no Military Victories & wealth is squandered and lost.  Will Durant once said that Oligarchies are created when rulers give relatives they are financially supporting positions of authority so they don’t have to financially support them anymore.  Knowing why they received the position they make no effort to execute the office faithfully.  Instead they leach as much money out of the people as they can with taxation and don’t make their lives better.  Wise but poor people have no voice and no influence for the better on the government.  That form of rule then devolves into Democracy.

Democracy is a very bad word for Plato.  There is to much variety and no virtue, the masses are ruled by their passions.  The least desirable element of society breeds and rapidly grows.  They are literally breeding violence and ignorance.  This then evolves into Tyranny.

Under tyranny nobody has any discipline, self-restraint, intelligence or wisdom.  It is complete anarchy, people are lawless, and godless.  There is only violence.  The Tyrant king must kill many people in order to maintain order and prevent himself from being deposed and killed.

You will notice the close correlation between the Dream of Nebuchadnezzar and Plato’s 5 regimes.  What I have just expounded is the true meaning of the dream.  This pattern seems to repeat not only throughout history but in the actual history of a single government.  It is an emergent property that seems to work like a fractal.  Not only did it start at the beginning of civilization it also happens in the life cycle of a Nation.  Plato made reference to a specific number which he didn’t overtly name known as the Number of Man that governs the cycle.  He mentioned a number, which I believe is the actual number at another time 216.  There are several ways of arriving at this number that connect to many of Plato’s theories, but perhaps the most interesting to me is multiplying the number 6 x 6 x 6.  Also of interest is the fact that in 2002 the United States of America turned 216 years old.

I am one of those that believes that the ancients did possess Wisdom and Secret knowledge that we have lost or forgotten.  Even if the numbers aren’t right that doesn’t mean that the psychology is wrong but only time will tell.  What I do know is that Kabbalists were obsessed with gematria just as were the early philosophers and Pythagoras.  The Monadists of which Pythagoras was one believed that the universe was generated by numbers.  He said something I can’t find right now that associated name and number, suggesting that number was greater than name because it actually created the thing.  Remember Adam in the garden of Eden naming all the animals, (binomial nomenclature) as God Numbered them?

Theater Deconstructed by Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

untitled

Since the dawn of civilization their have been two instincts in man at war with one another.  Tyranny and Democracy.  One of the weapons or tools in that battle was the Theater but Theater predisposes itself to more good than harm precisely because of how it succeeds in creating value for the people witnessing it.

THEATER COMES FROM THE WORDS THEORY AND THEOS

I wish I had recorded the source, I thought it would be easy to find again but most etymologies don’t go back as far as they could.

The English word theory was derived from a technical term in philosophy in Ancient Greek. As an everyday word, theoriaθεωρία, meant “a looking at, viewing, beholding”, but in more technical contexts it came to refer to contemplative or speculative understandings of natural things, such as those of natural philosophers, as opposed to more practical ways of knowing things, like that of skilled orators or artisans.[8] The word has been in use in English since at least the late 16th century.[9]Modern uses of the word “theory” are derived from the original definition, but have taken on new shades of meaning, still based on the idea that a theory is a thoughtful and rational explanation of the general nature of things.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory#Ancient_uses

Theory is a contemplative and rational type of abstract or generalizing thinking, or the results of such thinking. Depending on the context, the results might for example include generalized explanations of how nature works. The word has its roots in ancient Greek, but in modern use it has taken on several different related meanings. A theory is not the same as a hypothesis. A theory provides an explanatory framework for some observation, and from the assumptions of the explanation follows a number of possible hypotheses that can be tested in order to provide support for, or challenge, the theory.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory#Ancient_uses

The word theos (θεός) of course being the Greek word for god and Enthusiasm, Enthusiasmos meaning literally “in God”.  

When I was creating Shared State Theory of Communication I realized that Theater had an uncanny ability to “communicate a state” which means a thought, a perspective, or an idea.  One is inclined to sympathize with the character portrayed as the protagonist.  Throughout the play of film one projects one’s sense of self onto the protagonist and this elicit’s emotions akin to those of the protagonist.  In a manner of speaking you get to walk in the shoes of another person or look through their eyes, a shared state.

PROPAGANDA OR EDUCATION

For those of you that are skeptical of my research, remember that Plato was a contemporary of Pythagorus and his math cults and Plato used the allegory of the cave.  The cave represented the Greek caste system.  The director (Philosopher King), could directly the form of the good.  The Guardians basically did what they were told and manipulated the images, and the slaves or non citizens that didn’t understand the ideals/idols of the culture were subjected to indoctrination in the form of observing the shadows on the wall of the theater.  It is also of interest that early Christians who were more like a Secret Society when they were created, and I believe Christianity traces it’s origins to the Pythagorean math cults, held their secret initiations in underground caves.  Ask yourself this, Why do some cultures have long, proud, traditions of art and literature and others do not?

This tool can either be used for propaganda purposes as it was by various tyrants and dictators or it can be used as an educational tool or even a political tool.  When of the great uses of the Civilized Western world is the use of Satire, more or less forbidden in the Tyrannical and Islamic countries where theater is used solely for the purpose of Propaganda.  Muslims have sentiments that excesses of laughter are a bad thing and that one should not mock or ridicule others, raping, torturing, removing limbs, and be-headings are more acceptable. . .

One would, most likely, first remember “Leni” Riefenstahl  and the Nazi propaganda machine.  Hitler used the Pollock joke as a form of psychological warfare to lower the self esteem of his opponents before he attacked Poland and killed off all of their intellectuals and artists.

SATIRE, SADISM, SATYRS, AND THE SABBATH

5462071296_9f770d54c3_z

When I was creating Organic Computer Theory which states that Neural Myelination passes onto our children in the form of cellular memory, I noticed how certain types of intelligences were more prevalent in certain groups of people.  For example the Jewish people have more comedians than almost any other group of people and far more female comedians than any other group of people.

I believe that they integrated the genes, which they considered valuable, of a group of transgressively sacral artists that were allowed to exist in early Greece for the purpose of keeping a certain denomination of Persians from feeling comfortable in their state.  Narcissistic Psychopaths don’t have a sense of humor about themselves and can’t stand being mocked.  Socrates, himself, exposed the “Pretenders to Wisdom” and his entourage used to eaves drop on his conversations and laugh as they saw through the illogic and unreason of the Pseudo Wise.

The name Cynic derives from Ancient Greek κυνικός (kynikos), meaning “dog-like”, and κύων (kyôn), meaning “dog” (genitivekynos).  It seems certain, however, that the word dog was also thrown at the first Cynics as an insult for their shameless rejection of conventional manners, and their decision to live on the streets. Diogenes, in particular, was referred to as the Dog,[5] a distinction he seems to have revelled in, stating that “other dogs bite their enemies, I bite my friends to save them.”[6]

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind,
The King (or Ruler) of Mankind,
The God (or judge) of Mankind,-
From the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his whisper),-
(The same) who whispers into the hearts of Mankind,-
Among Jinn and among men.

—Quran, sura 114 (Al-Nas), ayat 1–6[15]

In Islamic theology, Shaytan and his minions are “whisperers,” who whisper into the chests of men and women, urging them to commit sin. This is where the desire to sin comes from, according to Islam.

SECRET SOCIETIES

Jewish people were instructed to teach their children a craft so that they could be gainfully employed and provide for themselves wherever they went in the world.  Every major World Civilization has always had one thing in common, a large middle class, craftsmen could move horizontally and nomadicly with relative freedom.   The Jewish people were more or less nomads because they were constantly getting exiled.  As they moved about from here to there they were exposed to different ideas and philosophies.  Ideas can be a very dangerous thing.  Theater can basically frame a new form of the good, a new god.

idea (n.) Look up idea at Dictionary.comlate 14c., “archetype of a thing in the mind of God; Platonic `idea,'” from Latin idea “idea,” and in Platonic philosophy “archetype,” from Greek idea“ideal prototype,” literally “the look of a thing (as opposed to the reality); form; kind, sort, nature,” from idein “to see,” from PIE *wid-es-ya-, suffixed form of root *weid- “to see” (see vision). Sense of “result of thinking” first recorded 1640s.  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=idea&searchmode=none

At this particular moment in time the vast majority of Secret Society members are entertainers, both actors and musicians, they are the current “middle class” craftsmen…

Rabbi Ba’al Shivah, the reason Muslims are not descendants of Adam.

1360_muslim_adam_eve

Muslim’s claim descent from Adam, as a matter of fact they claim to be the original man and the conceit of being the perfect man.  This informs their belief that they are a type of royalty, even though they are the most illiterate group of people on their planet.  From their perspective everything and everyone is under their authority and subject to their judgment and punishment. They are the original, the final, and the only cause of the good and everything they do is good because they are the one’s doing it.  You can manufacture this manner of stupidity when you have an illiterate people who can’t read themselves, and is told what to do, think and feel by a very small priest class.  It is difficult to not be flippant on this subject or respectful even because it is so, so, stupid.  Let’s examine. . . 

Âdam ( Arabic: آدمtranslit.: ʾĀdam, Alternate Spelling: Adem ) is believed to have been the first human being and the first prophet and messenger in Islam.[1] Adam’s role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also venerate his wife, Eve, as the “mother of mankind”.[2] Muslims see Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur’an promulgates that all the prophets preached the same faith of submission to God.[3] His story is told in theQur’an in numerous places, though his Qur’anic narrative differs from that in the Torah in some aspects.

According to the Qur’an, God Created humankind out of clay,[13] shaped it to a form and then commanded the angels to bow (submit) to Adam. Iblis (Devil) refused out of pride[14] and was banished from Jannah (Heaven). Iblis was one of the jinn to begin with.[15][16]

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_in_Islam

Coming after the Jews, they take the Jewish story and make it about themselves, dismissing everyone and everything that came before themselves as irrelevant.  The interesting way this gets interpreted is that anybody that doesn’t recognize the superiority of the Muslims, is Iblis, this is why they refer to the jews as shayateen, Satan, and the United States as the Great Satan. 

In an article previous to this I mentioned the phonological similarities of the word ibis and Iblis and the fact that Thoth has the head of an Ibis and I find this very significant.  I will get into more of that later.  Now, let’s use my Jewish exegesis to discover why Muslims cannot be descendants of Adam as they say.  

Thoth Ok

Pardes refers to (types of) approaches to biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism (or – simpler – interpretation of text inTorah study). The term, sometimes also spelled PaRDeS, is an acronym formed from the name initials of the following four approaches:

  • Peshat (פְּשָׁט) — “plain” (“simple”) or the direct meaning.[1]
  • Remez (רֶמֶז) — “hints” or the deep (allegoric: hidden or symbolic) meaning beyond just the literal sense.
  • Derash (דְּרַשׁ) — from Hebrew darash: “inquire” (“seek”) — the comparative (midrashic) meaning, as given through similar occurrences.
  • Sod (סוֹד) (pronounced with a long O as in ‘bone’) — “secret” (“mystery”) or the esoteric/mystical meaning, as given through inspiration or revelation.
  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardes_(Jewish_exegesis)

First of all the Christians got it wrong, perhaps intentionally, the forbidden fruit was not sex it was in all actuality the human brain, it was the tree of knowledge after all.  And in partaking of it one becomes like god.  The whole purpose of life on earth was to be like god from the ancient perspective, in living you were performing Theurgia, the work of god.  You balanced out the 4 elements fire, water, earth, and air just like god did.  In living as a human you were attempting to understand god, this is what separates us from the angels and makes us their superiors.  Secondly, since all will is god’s will the devil is actually doing gods will, “The devil is god’s hitman.” my saying and you can quote me on that.  

 

When Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden, which is essentially heaven or the Yin world… (http://adstc.wordpress.com/2014/01/26/the-yin-world/)  …they were happily unconscious not thinking with their brains but with their emotions, they didn’t have to think about practicality or survival, everything was provided for them.  Now that they had chosen to be like god they had to live consciously not like ignorant little animals.  Now here is the kicker, Muslims don’t do their own thinking, they reject thinking, they have a priest class to do their thinking for them.  Most of them are illiterate and Saudi Arabia translates fewer books into their language than Greece does, and Greece has a much smaller population, Muslims are largest, fastest growing population on earth, reproducing irresponsibly.  Muslims never left the Garden of Eden so they can’t be descendants of Adam.  

Secondly, they rejected the temple of Thoth in Egypt, as a philologist I frankly think the word thought comes from the Egyptian god Thoth. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Indo-European_language)  I suspect that they named their devil Iblis after the ibis headed Thoth and made him their Satan.  Intelligence and wisdom and reason is their Satan. Thoth was a scribe, he recorded things, which means that he had memory, Muslims refuse to remember, they lie about history.  In the UK they banned teaching the Holocaust in school to avoid offending Muslims.  (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-445979/Teachers-drop-Holocaust-avoid-offending-Muslims.html)

Muhammad was very clever in an insane, evil, stupid kind of way.  He re branded the old evil traditions and superstitions of Babylon as a new religion carrying on in the tradition of Moses and Jesus, when their reforms were to remove the co mingling of the insane, evil, murderous, social climbing Persians from their midst and rank.  What he tried to do and is being somewhat successful in doing is making it as though Christianity and Judaism never happened, and extending the Persian empire as was always their tyrannical instinct and purpose.  

Rebranding is a marketing strategy in which a new name, term, symbol, design, or combination thereof is created for an established brand with the intention of developing a new, differentiated identity in the minds of consumers, investors, and competitors.[1][2] Often, this involves radical changes to a brand’s logo, name, image, marketing strategy, and advertising themes. Such changes typically aim to reposition the brand/company, occasionally to distance itself from negative connotations of the previous branding, or to move the brand upmarket; they may also communicate a new message a new board of directors wishes to communicate.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebranding

Muslim’s are the children of the lie, and they spread their religion by lying, concealing the evil of it, lying about history and their deeds and their intent, killing anybody that tells others what they are really about and snickering all the while as their evil plan succeeds.  The Pharisees in the bible that plagued Jesus were of this creed, it is obvious from the rhetorical tautologies in their narrative and from Jesus own words, “don’t even step foot in a samaritan encampment…”  

mathew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.

Matthew 10: 16 “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.

 

The Samaritans are adherents of Samaritanism, an Abrahamic religion closely related to Judaism. Based on theSamaritan Pentateuch,[3] Samaritans say that their worship is the true religion of the ancient Israelites prior to theBabylonian Exile, preserved by those who remained in the Land of Israel, as opposed to Judaism, which they say is a related but altered and amended religion, brought back by those returning from the Babylonian exile.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samaritans

Remember if you will how the Pharisees lost debate after debate to Jesus, and they were constantly asking him questions to put him in a trap, where either he would say something illegal by Roman Law, or by Rabbinical Law.  This same philosophical battle wages today.  Jesus argued against the violent interpretation of the law from the old testament.  Argued against stoning women.  Argued against a violent revolution.  And when he spoke to the Roman leaders they respected him because he spoke with authority, they treated him as an equal.  

In ancient Rome, Auctoritas referred to the general level of prestige a person had in Roman society, and, as a consequence, his clout, influence, and ability to rally support around his will. Auctoritas was not merely political, however; it had a numinous content and symbolized the mysterious “power of command” of heroic Roman figures.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auctoritas

Muslims claim that Jesus was a prophet of Allah, not true, he serves another god.  But if that was the case why then do they have this obsession with the Pharoahs of Egypt that persecuted the Jews? 

Quran (9:30)“And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

 

Telling Lies, Duping Delight

So, who are they really?  Well I am glad you asked.  

But recite unto them with truth the tale of the two sons of Adam, how they offered each a sacrifice, and it was accepted from the one of them and it was not accepted from the other. (The one) said: I will surely kill thee. (The other) answered: Allah accepteth only from those who ward off (evil). Even if thou stretch out thy hand against me to kill me, I shall not stretch out my hand against thee to kill thee, lo! I fear Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Lo! I would rather thou shouldst bear the punishment of the sin against me and thine own sin and become one of the owners of the fire. That is the reward of evil-doers. But (the other’s) mind imposed on him the killing of his brother, so he slew him and became one of the losers. Then Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground, to show him how to hide his brother’s naked corpse. He said: Woe unto me! Am I not able to be as this raven and so hide my brother’s naked corpse? And he became repentant. For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth. (Surah 5:27-32 Pickthall)

http://www.answering-islam.org/authors/masihiyyen/cain_abel.html

If you carefully read this transliteration, and you deconstruct the vagueness’s, obfuscation, and manipulations you see that they are defending the one that killed his brother and placing blame for the killing on the one that got killed.  It is unbelievable, they are saying that the one (unnamed) whose offering was accepted, wanted to kill his brother, he didn’t say it, he thought it, and apparently the murderous one had the ability to read minds even though god didn’t accept his sacrifice.  “But (the other’s) mind imposed on him the killing of his brother, so he slew him and became one of the losers…”  how is that not insane?  You forced me to kill you with the power or your brain, but I forgive myself because Allah forgives me.  (smh)

One last thing I have said how throughout history these two different peoples strove one against the other, an epic battle between good and evil.  Ponder this after everything I have told you, who are muslims really descended from? 

Ahura Mazda (/əˌhʊrəˌmæzdə/;[1]), (also known as Ohrmazd, Ahuramazda, Hourmazd, Hormazd, and Hurmuz,Lord or simply as spirit) is the Avestan name for a higher spirit of the Old Iranian religion who was proclaimed as the uncreated spirit by Zoroaster, the founder of Zoroastrianism. Ahura Mazda is described as the highest spirit of worship in Zoroastrianism, along with being the first and most frequently invoked spirit in the Yasna. The literal meaning of the word Ahura means light and Mazda means wisdom.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahura_Mazda

Angra Mainyu[pronunciation?] (also: Aŋra Mainiiu) is the Avestan-language name of Zoroastrianism‘s hypostasis of the “destructive spirit” from which later conceptions of Satan derive.

Rabbi Ba’al Shiva connects the dots from the Battle of Thermopylae to Gideon.

Is the bible true?  Yes, but not literally.  From my perspective it is a mythological allegory for real historical events.  Not only did the people writing the bible not take it literally, they weren’t the same people.  Some of the Books of the Bible have Persian words, Israel was continually being reconquered by Persia and then re educated and then escaping yet again.  The Bible tells a story of a struggle to once and for all be free of the corrupt relationship with this tyrannical eastern force.  Often times these people had to tell their stories in a concealed metaphorical way so that other parties would not be directly offended, but at the same time the truth of the matter could be ferreted out with study and meditation.

Pardes (Jewish exegesis)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Pardes refers to (types of) approaches to biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism (or – simpler – interpretation of text inTorah study). The term, sometimes also spelled PaRDeS, is an acronym formed from the name initials of the following four approaches:

We know that the Jews Hellenized and absorbed the Greek Culture and philosophy.

Hellenistic Judaism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hellenistic Judaism was a form of Judaism in the ancient world that combined Jewish religious tradition with elements of Greek culture. Until the fall of the Roman Empire and the Muslim conquests of the Eastern Mediterranean, the main centers of Hellenistic Judaism were Alexandria (Egypt) and Antioch (Northern Syria—now Turkey), the two main Greek urban settlements of the Middle East and North Africa area, both founded at the end of the 4th century BCE in the wake of the conquests of Alexander the Great. Hellenistic Judaism also existed in Jerusalem during the Second Temple Period, where there was conflict between Hellenizers and traditionalists (sometimes called Judaizers).

The major literary product of the contact of Second Temple Judaism and Hellenistic culture is the Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible from Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic to Koiné Greek, specifically, Jewish Koiné Greek.

The decline of Hellenistic Judaism started in the 2nd century CE, and its causes are still not fully understood. It may be that it was eventually marginalized by, partially absorbed into or became progressively the Koiné-speaking core of “Early Christianity” centered around Antioch and its “universalist” tradition — see most notably Paul of Tarsus and Judaismand the Abrogation of Old Covenant laws.

I am going to tell you an interesting little story, and point out some similarities that you might not have noticed before.

Battle of Thermopylae

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Battle of Thermopylae (/θərˈmɒpɨl/ thər-mop-i-leeGreekΜάχη τῶν ΘερμοπυλῶνMachē tōn Thermopylōn) was fought between an alliance of Greek city-states, led by King Leonidas of Sparta, and thePersian Empire of Xerxes I over the course of three days, during the second Persian invasion of Greece. It took place simultaneously with the naval battle at Artemisium, in August or September 480 BC, at the narrow coastal pass of Thermopylae (‘The Hot Gates’). The Persian invasion was a delayed response to the defeat of the first Persian invasion of Greece, which had been ended by the Athenian victory at the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC. Xerxes had amassed a huge army and navy, and set out to conquer all of Greece. The Athenian generalThemistocles had proposed that the allied Greeks block the advance of the Persian army at the pass of Thermopylae, and simultaneously block the Persian navy at the Straits of Artemisium.

The Battle of Thermopylae was a real event.  it is taught in Millitary History.

Military history

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Military history is a humanities discipline within the scope of general historical recording of armed conflict in the history of humanity, and its impact on the societies, their cultures, economies and changing intra and international relationships.

Professional historians normally focus on military affairs that had a major impact on the societies involved as well as the aftermath of conflicts, while amateur historians and hobbyists often take a larger interest in the details of battles, equipment and uniforms in use.

The essential subjects of military history study are the causes of war, the social and cultural foundations, military doctrine on each side, the logistics, leadership, technology, strategy, and tactics used, and how these changed over time. On the other hand, Just War Theory explores the moral dimensions of warfare, and to better limit the destructive reality caused by war, seeks to establish a doctrine of military ethics.

Now it appears that the book of Judges was written before the battle of Thermopylae, if sources can be trusted.  So the Question arises was the book of Judges the inspiration for the battle of Thermopylae?

Judges 7:

The Lord said to Gideon, “The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel boast over me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’ Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, ‘Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return home and hurry away from Mount Gilead.’” Then 22,000 of the people returned, and 10,000 remained.

And the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many. Take them down to the water, and I will test them for you there, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall go with you,’ shall go with you, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ shall not go.” So he brought the people down to the water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “Every one who laps the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set by himself. Likewise, every one who kneels down to drink.” And the number of those who lapped, putting their hands to their mouths, was 300 men, but all the rest of the people knelt down to drink water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “With the 300 men who lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hand, and let all the others go every man to his home.”So the people took provisions in their hands, and their trumpets. And he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his tent, but retained the 300 men. And the camp of Midian was below him in the valley.


 

Midian

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Midian (Hebrewמִדְיָן‎), Madyan (Arabicمدين‎), or Madiam (GreekΜαδιάμ, Μαδιανίτης for a Midianite) is a geographical place and a people mentioned in the Bible and in the Qur’anWilliam G. Dever suggests it was located in the “northwest Arabian Peninsula, on the east shore of the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea (the “Hejaz”). “[1]

Hadad the Edomite is specifically stated in 1 Kg 11:17-18 to have passed through Midian and Paran while fleeing from Edomto Egypt. Even so, some scholars have claimed Midian was not a geographical area but a league of tribes.[2]

The Midianites were the descendants of Midian, who was a son of Abraham through his wife Keturah: “. . . again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah. And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.”

What is the significance of the Number 300?  Well, stick with me for a moment and I will try to explain it to you.

Shin (letter)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shin (also spelled Šin (šīn) or Sheen) literally means “teeth”, “press”, and “sharp”; It is the twenty-first letter in manySemitic abjadsincluding Phoenician 𐤔Aramaic/Hebrew ש, and Arabic ش‎ (in abjadi order, 13th in modern order). Its sound value is a voiceless sibilant[ʃ] or [s].

Image

Significance[edit]

In gematria, Shin represents the number 300.

According to Judges 12:6, the tribe of Ephraim could not differentiate between Shin and Samekh; when the Gileadites were at war with the Ephraimites, they would ask suspected Ephraimites to say the word shibolet; an Ephraimite would say sibolet and thus be exposed. From this episode we get the English word Shibboleth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibboleth

shibboleth (/ˈʃɪbəlɛθ/[1] or /ˈʃɪbələθ/[2]) is a word or custom whose variations in pronunciation or style can be used to differentiate members of ingroups from those of outgroups. Within the mindset of the ingroup, a connotation or value judgment of correct/incorrect or superior/inferior can be ascribed to the two variants.

Origin[edit]

The term originates from the Hebrew word shibbólet (שִׁבֹּלֶת), which literally means the part of a plant containing grains, such as an ear of corn or a stalk of grain[3]or, in different contexts, “stream, torrent”.[4][5] The modern usage derives from an account in the Hebrew Bible, in which pronunciation of this word was used to distinguish Ephraimites, whose dialect lacked a /ʃ/ phoneme (as in shoe), from Gileadites whose dialect did include such a phoneme.

Recorded in the Book of Judges, chapter 12, after the inhabitants of Gilead inflicted a military defeat upon the tribe of Ephraim (around 1370–1070 BC), the surviving Ephraimites tried to cross the Jordan River back into their home territory and the Gileadites secured the river’s fords to stop them. In order to identify and kill these refugees, the Gileadites put each refugee to a simple test:

Gilead then cut Ephraim off from the fords of the Jordan, and whenever Ephraimite fugitives said, ‘Let me cross,’ the men of Gilead would ask, ‘Are you an Ephraimite?’ If he said, ‘No,’ they then said, ‘Very well, say “Shibboleth” (שבלת).’ If anyone said, “Sibboleth” (סבלת), because he could not pronounce it, then they would seize him and kill him by the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites fell on this occasion.

Judges 12:5–6, NJB

In Judaism[edit]

Shin also stands for the word Shaddai, a name for God. Because of this, a kohen (priest) forms the letter Shin with his hands as he recites the Priestly Blessing. In the mid 1960s, actor Leonard Nimoy used a single-handed version of this gesture to create the Vulcan hand salute for his character, Mr. Spock, on Star Trek.[2]

 

The Shema Yisrael prayer also commands the Israelites to write God’s commandments on their hearts (Deut. 6:6); the shape of the letter Shin mimics the structure of the human heart: the lower, larger left ventricle (which supplies the full body) and the smaller right ventricle (which supplies the lungs) are positioned like the lines of the letter Shin.

I can’t find a good source on this but Shin also represents fire and spirit.

Old Persian Saying: “It only takes one stray dog to ruin the saffron water for a whole village.”

“Salahuddin mosque are bracing for protests today (Sept 14) as part of “Walk Your Dog in Front of a Mosque Day.”

The event is being organized by supporters of a man who claims Muslim protestors kicked his English mastiff, Cupcake, during an anti-Israel rally last month.

While claiming that they wanted to draw attention to Muslim attitudes toward dogs, the organizers’ Facebook page is replete with hostilities. One man wrote that he would throw protestors into a “lake of fire” and shoot their dogs, and the event has been promoted on a white supremacist website, StormFront.org.”  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/15/islam-on-dogs-can-you-be-_n_1885580.html

According to Islaamic Sharee’ah, it is not permitted to keep a dog except within narrowly-defined limits, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) explained: “Whoever keeps a dog, his good deeds will decrease every day by one qeeraat (a unit of measurement), unless it is a dog for farming or herding.” According to another report: “. . . unless it is a dog for herding sheep, farming or hunting.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2322) 

Dogs are extremely naajis (impure, unclean). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If a dog drinks from the vessel of any one of you, let him wash it seven times” (reported by Muslim, no. 279). According to another report: “. . . and clean it the eighth time with earth.” (Saheeh Muslim, no. 280). 

It is forbidden in Islaam to sell a dog and to receive payment for it, as is reported in Saheeh al-Bukhaari from Abu Mas’oud al-Ansaari: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade (accepting) the price of a dog. (al-Fath, no. 2237) 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us not to resemble dogs by placing our forearms on the ground during sujood (prostration), as in reported in the hadeeth narrated by Anas ibn Maalik, according to which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do sujood properly; none of you should spread his forearms like a dog does.” (al-Bukhaari, Fath, no. 822). 

Whoever keeps a dog in his house is denied the blessing of the angels’ presence in his house, as the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 3225). https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081223090814AAKGBdK

Muhammad made strange and harsh statements about dogs and these edicts affect dogs in a tragic way. His teachings may have come from cultural bias, Pagan concepts, or his own imagination, but wherever they came from they led to the cruel treatment of dogs.

None of the statements regarding dogs are found in the Quran but they abound in the various collections of traditions (hadith). These traditions are a primary foundation of Islamic theology and are the basis of many Islamic laws. They render dogs as “impure” and worse. Per Muhammad’s orders most dogs were to be killed and all dogs of a specific color (black) had to be killed.

Muhammad claimed to be a prophet of God and as such his word was to be obeyed. With the teeth of Islam biting worldwide it is vital that Muhammad’s teachings be scrutinized to determine if he were a nut or a prophet.  http://www.answering-islam.org/Silas/dogs.htm

Shaytan as a “whisperer”[edit]

In Islamic theology, Shaytan and his minions are “whisperers,” who whisper into the chests of men and women, urging them to commit sin. This is where the desire to sin comes from, according to Islam.

They are from both men and jinn.

The Quran provides a supplication for mankind, aimed at fighting the tempting of Satan and his minions:

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind,
The King (or Ruler) of Mankind,
The God (or judge) of Mankind,-
From the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his whisper),-
(The same) who whispers into the hearts of Mankind,-
Among Jinn and among men.

—Quran, sura 114 (Al-Nas), ayat 1–6[15]

JEWISH ATTITUDES TOWARDS DOGS

It is important to remember that the Jewish people repeatedly escaped from the Persians and were repeatedly recaptured and re-educated by the Persians.

Image

Jewish people are very good at concealing the fact that dogs are not part of the definition but they are a part of the connotation, this is known and concealed. 

“But he kept telling her, “First let the children be filled. It is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the puppies.” Mark 7:27

Jesus here uses the term “little dogs” to lessen the insult to the gentiles.

DOGS IN THE HINDU RELIGION

Dogs have a major religious significance among the Hindus in Nepal also in India particularly in Mithlanchal, North Bengal and Sikkim. The dogs are worshipped as a part of a five-day Tihar festival that falls roughly in November every year. In Hinduism, it is believed that dogs guard the doors of Heaven and Hell. This is a day when the dog is worshipped by applying tika (the holy vermilion dot), incense sticks and garlanded generally with marigold flower.[1]Sarama, the female dog of the gods, is described as the mother of all dogs.

The dog (Shvan) is also the vahana or mount of the Hindu god BhairavaYudhisthira had approached heaven with his dog,[2] therefore among many Hindus, the common belief exists that caring for dogs can also pave way to heaven. ~WIKIPEDIA

REMEMBER TO THAT THERE WAS A BLACK DOG CULT OF INDIA ABOUT WHICH STILL LITTLE IS KNOWN.

“Anubis (/əˈnbəs/ or /əˈnjbəs/;[2] Ancient GreekἌνουβις) is the Greek name[3] for a jackal-headed godassociated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion. According to the Akkadian transcription in the Amarna letters, Anubis’ name was vocalized in Egyptian as Anapa.[4] The oldest known mention of Anubis is in theOld Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the pharaoh.[5] At this time, Anubis was the most important god of the dead but he was replaced during the Middle Kingdom by Osiris.[6]

He takes names in connection with his funerary role, such as He who is upon his mountain, which underscores his importance as a protector of the deceased and their tombs,” ~wikipedia

IN ANCIENT GREECE

^^^DIOGENESE^^^

Origin of the Cynic name[edit] ~WIKIPEDIA

The name Cynic derives from Ancient Greek κυνικός (kynikos), meaning “dog-like”, and κύων (kyôn), meaning “dog” (genitivekynos).[3] One explanation offered in ancient times for why the Cynics were called dogs was because the first Cynic, Antisthenes, taught in the Cynosarges gymnasium at Athens.[4] The word Cynosargesmeans the place of the white dog. It seems certain, however, that the word dog was also thrown at the first Cynics as an insult for their shameless rejection of conventional manners, and their decision to live on the streets. Diogenes, in particular, was referred to as the Dog,[5] a distinction he seems to have revelled in, stating that “other dogs bite their enemies, I bite my friends to save them.”[6] Later Cynics also sought to turn the word to their advantage, as a later commentator explained:

There are four reasons why the Cynics are so named. First because of the indifference of their way of life, for they make a cult of indifference and, like dogs, eat and make love in public, go barefoot, and sleep in tubs and at crossroads. The second reason is that the dog is a shameless animal, and they make a cult of shamelessness, not as being beneath modesty, but as superior to it. The third reason is that the dog is a good guard, and they guard the tenets of their philosophy. The fourth reason is that the dog is a discriminating animal which can distinguish between its friends and enemies. So do they recognize as friends those who are suited to philosophy, and receive them kindly, while those unfitted they drive away, like dogs, by barking at them.[7]

The Origin of the Western Philosophical System

Image

So my theory which I feel confident will stand up to the criticism of science, haplo-groups and what have you is that essentially our entire western system of philosophy, religion, logic, science, every structure of legitimate authority comes from the Aghori cult of India.  Even the words that we use still hearken back to that ancient philosophical cult, that predated the Greek culture, the cult of the Augure’s.  I am not making this up, it is a known fact, you may not know it but that doesn’t make it any less true.  

In ancient RomeAuctoritas referred to the general level of prestige a person had in Roman society, and, as a consequence, his clout, influence, and ability to rally support around his will. Auctoritas was not merely political, however; it had a numinous content and symbolized the mysterious “power of command” of heroic Roman figures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auctoritas

28When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.  Matthew 7

Image

http://www.cornell.edu/video/the-spirit-of-roman-law

I am a linguistic philosopher and a philologist, and I started noticing patterns in words that were related to one another or had similar or conjunct definitions.  This particular grouping of words is most meaningful because not only did it create the philosophy of reason and logic it created the philosophy behind all of the western structures of authority including science.  

The Aghori (Sanskritअघोर aghōra),[2] are ascetic Shaiva sadhus.

The Aghori are known to engage in post-mortem rituals. They often dwell in charnel grounds, have been witnessed smearing cremation ashes on their bodies, and have been known to use bones from human corpses for crafting skull bowls (which Shiva and other Hindu deities are often iconically depicted holding or using) and jewelry. Due to their practices that are contradictory to orthodox Hinduism, they are generally opposed.[3][4]

Pythagorus, name meant, “I am the Python”  and since the Python was a chthonic symbol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chthonic) what he was saying was, “I am death.”  Jesus was similarly transliterated, when he said I am Adonai Sabaoth, he wasn’t saying that he was the lord of the Sabbath, he was saying he was the god of death.  

Reason

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 

Reason is the capacity for consciously making sense of things, applying logic, for establishing and verifying facts, and changing or justifying practices, institutions, and beliefs based on new or existing information.[1] It is closely associated with such characteristically human activities as philosophysciencelanguage,mathematics, and art, and is normally considered to be a definitive characteristic of human nature.[2] The concept of reason is sometimes referred to as rationalityand sometimes as discursive reason, in opposition to intuitive reason.[3]

Reason or “reasoning” is associated with thinkingcognition, and intellect. Reason, like habit or intuition, is one of the ways by which thinking comes from one idea to a related idea. For example, it is the means by which rational beings understand themselves to think about cause and effecttruth and falsehood, and what is good or bad. It is also closely identified with the ability to self-consciously change beliefsattitudestraditions, and institutions, and therefore with the capacity for freedom and self-determination.[4]

According to Professor emeritus Okko Behrands, Octavian chose between one of two names, Romulus the first king of Rome, and Augustus the high priest of the cult of the Augure’s.  You will notice that we have 2 invasive months in our calendar, Julius and Augustus, the two roman rulers that marked the middle of the Pax Romana.  Furthermore, it threw off the numbering of the calendar months, instead of being in their proper places, Sapta, Octa, Nova, and Deca (September, October, November, and December), are 2 places removed from their correct position.  

I believe that the Agure’s were associated with Aventine hill on which Remus lived and he was not chosen for kingship of Rome because of the presence of inauspicious birds.  Auspicious that is another word that I should add to the list, Shiva is known as the Auspicious one.  The birds were carrion birds, omens of death, and as we know the Aghori would sleep in grave yards and were obsessed with death and philosophy the death of delusion and ignorance.

Gymnosophists (Greek γυμνοσοφισταίgymnosophistai, i.e. “naked philosophers” or “naked sophists”)[1][2] is the name given by the Greeks to certain ancientIndian philosophers who pursued asceticism to the point of regarding food and clothing as detrimental to purity of thought (sadhus or yogis) and also even naked priests from Ethiopia.[2]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gymnosophists

Remember if you will that the Gymnasium is where people were taught the philosophy or Greece and indoctrinated into society.  

A little more about Pythagorus:

 Aristippus explained his name by saying, “He spoke (agor-) the truth no less than did the Pythian (Pyth-),”

 

There is little direct evidence as to the kind and amount of knowledge which Pythagoras acquired, or as to his definite philosophical views. Everything of the kind mentioned by Plato and Aristotle is attributed not to Pythagoras, but to the Pythagoreans. Heraclitus stated that he was a man of extensive learning;[25] andXenophanes claimed that he believed in the transmigration of souls.[26] Xenophanes mentions the story of his interceding on behalf of a dog that was being beaten, professing to recognise in its cries the

voice of a departed friend.

Pythagorean theorem

 a^2 + b^2 = c^2.

While the theorem that now bears his name was known and previously utilized by the Babylonians and Indians, he, or his students, are often said to have constructed the first proof. 

 

Tetractys

Pythagoras was also credited with devising the tetractys, the triangular figure of four rows which add up to the perfect number, ten. As a mystical symbol, it was very important to the worship of the Pythagoreans who would swear oaths by it:

And the inventions were so admirable, and so divinised by those who understood them, that the members used them as forms of oath: “By him who handed to our generation the tetractys, source of the roots of ever-flowing nature.”

—Iamblichus, Vit. Pyth., 29
 
Aristotle claimed that the philosophy of Plato closely followed the teachings of the Pythagoreans,[78] and Cicero repeats this claim: Platonem ferunt didicisse Pythagorea omnia (“They say Plato learned all things Pythagorean“) Bertrand Russell, in his A History of Western Philosophy, contended that the influence of Pythagoras on Plato and others was so great that he should be considered the most influential of all Western philosophers.
 
Pythagoras became the subject of elaborate legends surrounding his historic persona. Aristotle described Pythagoras as a wonder-worker and somewhat of a supernatural figure, attributing to him such aspects as a golden thigh, which was a sign of divinity. According to Muslim tradition, Pythagoras was said to have been initiated by Hermes (Egyptian Thoth).[55] According to accounts of Aristotle and others, some ancients believed that he had the ability to travel through space and time and to communicate with animals and plants.[56]
 

Influence on esoteric groups

Pythagoras started a secret society called the Pythagorean Brotherhood devoted to the study of mathematics. This had a great effect on future esoteric traditions, such as Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism, both of which were scientific/mystical groups dedicated to the study of mathematics/geometry and logical reasoning as opposed to religious dogma. Both Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism have claimed to have evolved out of the Pythagorean Brotherhood.
