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?

Temporal Context: Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

TEMPORAL CONTEXT

Is a logical fallacy people make when looking at history or at the bible. In order to properly evaluate and judge what happened you have to understand what was happening at the time, the context in which a thing was said or done. The Abrahamic Law Code was created when Abraham was trying to separate the identity of his people from the invasive Tyrannical Babylonian Death Cults intent on submitting the entire world and spreading their influence all over the world with the practice of rape, genocide, back-door political alliances, bribing, lying and ransom. When you are fighting an evil enemy you have to use tactics that will succeed against that enemy, that doesn’t mean you are responsible for the state of the world or that tactics being used at that time. Atheists assume that the Judeo-Christian god condoned or even created rape or kidnapping, that is not the case, when you enemy attacks preemptively, and has a plan to steal your women, impregnate them, and out-breed you, you have to be able to maintain a cohesive group of people and continue populating the earth, otherwise you might as well surrender, and let them kill you.

As the Invasive Persio-Babylonian Death cults expanded their influence as what is now Israel continued fleeing to the west.image0091

The Persio-Babylonian Death Cults continued their campaign to submit the entire world to their evil, despotic, tyranny, by any means available. Every time the Babylonians conquered the Jews, they dragged them back to Babylon for “re-education”. When Babylon had spread it’s influence to Egypt, Moses had to march in the wilderness for 40 years to separate those Jews that sympathized with the Mizraim (The Nations, Egypt and Babylon).

After Solomon created the temple, notice the map above as evidence that The Jews existed there and had influence, Babylon once again conquered the Jews and took them back to Babylon for “re-education”.

When Babylon spread it’s influence to Ancient Greece asking for Earth and Water.


The demand for earth and water symbolized that those surrendering to Persians gave up all their rights over their land and every product of the land. Giving earth and water they recognized the Persian authority over everything; even their lives belonged to the king of Persians. Then negotiations would take place to specify the obligations and the benefits of the liegemen.

The phrase earth and water, even in modern Greek, symbolizes unconditional subordination to a conqueror.

According to the modern historian J. M. Balcer, the significance of earth and water is that they were Zoroastrian symbols and representative of vassalage to the Persian Empire. “Persian heralds traveled throughout Greece demanding the recognition of Persian Suzerainty and the Zoroastrian symbols of earth and water, the marks of vassalage…”.[2] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_and_water#Interpretation


The battle of Thermopoli was fought, nobody ever asks themselves why the Spartans use the same number of fighters as the shock troups of Joshua, 300 men, and the correspondence this has the the numeric value of the letter Shin.

yhsh

When the Roman Roads were created which allowed the rapid spread of Christianity after it had attracted Highway men, nobody asks why there were people there using Hamas like tactics on the Roman Centurians.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicarii)

Nobody asks why Jesus openly despised the followers of the Abrahamic Law code from ancient Babylon. The Samaritans, Sadducees, and Pharisees, all followed the Babylonian interpretation of the Law which wasn’t even really jewish.


5These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. matthew 10


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

Nobody notices that Josephus was a Pharisee, that he had been by the Flavius Caesar line as a Patronage. Nobody mentions that they had a reason to not mention Jesus because he was disruptive to what the Rich Elites in Rome were trying to do.

Nobody mentions that the early Christians were killed by Romans who laughed at them being a peaceful people that would not fight.

Jean-Léon_Gérôme_-_The_Christian_Martyrs'_Last_Prayer_-_Walters_37113
Noboby notices Rome didn’t embrace Christianity until Constantine, who was a Flavius Caesar. Maybe the Flavians with their intimate knowledge of the Persians realized an alliance with them was unsustainable and no longer desirable…

constantine
Nobody realizes that what Mohammed actually did was resurrect not the Abrahamic Law code, in it’s true form but the invasive Death Cult of Ancient Babylon/Persia. Because Christianity had been embraced by Rome this was a kind of rhetorical camouflage, a kind of equivocation, to mask his actual intent.

Nobody mentions that Rome after being ejected from it’s land by Muslims, then started the Crusades as a response to Islam and to reclaim it’s land. Also at this time The Holy Roman Empire becomes the Roman Catholic Church, because of having been evicted from it’s land.

joxua-luxor

Nobody mentions that Islam hasn’t changed since the converted the Berber’s of northern Africa also known as the Barbarians to the Romans, and the Barbary coast pirates. Since the revolution of Ibn Tumrt the Berber’s killed off all of the Artists and Intelligencia, Islam has remained the same.

Gods-Brides-New-Nuns-On-Why-They-Chose-His-Path-MainPhoto

Nobody mentions that muslim women, Jewish women and Nuns cover their hair so that they will not attract the lust of the Fallen Angels and get raped, but only one of those religions condones rape as a form of punishment and psychological warfare. The same religion that allows for Women to be kept as property under the Auspices of War Booty scriptures.

Nobody mentions that Islam has a history of brutalizing women which is well documented in religious history as well as secular history, the same history that Muslims find offensive to be taught in schools but is occurring right now in the world.

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…

Origins of Western Philosophy, Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

A huge help in putting together my theories was the work of Okko Behrends.  What I do is I look for the movement of ideas, words, philosophies, processes, practices (praxis) from one culture to another over time.  These create rhetorical tautologies or identical patterns.  Some cultures adopt and keep those patterns because of an affinity and others do not.

Frankly I think that the Augur’s of Pre-Greek Minoan cult were originally from India and in India I believe they were called the Aghori.

The Aghori (Sanskrit: अघोरaghōra)[2] are asceticShaivasadhus.

The Aghori in Shaivism.

The Aghori are known to engage in post-mortem rituals. They often dwell in charnel grounds, have been witnessed smearing cremationashes 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]

Many Aghori gurus command great reverence from rural populations as they are supposed to possess healing powers gained through their intensely eremitic rites and practices of renunciation and tápasya. They are also known to meditate and perform worship in haunted houses.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aghori

8 minutes in Behrend’s defines Auctoritatus as a form of authority not based on force but based on reason, what I refer to as Sapiential Authority.

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#Auctoritas_principis

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

cicero

44 minutes okko quotes cicero

Auctoritas is determined by it’s good results and it’s success and by the merit of reason.  The High priest of the Augure’s didn’t create the law, he didn’t manufacture it, he expounded the law that already existed in the universe the Law that governed success.  They were readers of omens, signs, and portents.

The augur was a priest and official in the classical world, especially ancient Rome and Etruria. His main role was the practice of augury, interpreting the will of the gods by studying the flight of birds: whether they are flying in groups or alone, what noises they make as they fly, direction of flight and what kind of birds they are. This was known as “taking the auspices.” The ceremony and function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society—public or private—including matters of war, commerce, and religion.

The Roman historian Livy stresses the importance of the augurs: “Who does not know that this city was founded only after taking the auspices, that everything in war and in peace, at home and abroad, was done only after taking the auspices?”[1]  

augur

It was also antithetical to tyranny. At 14 minutes tyranny = kingship.  The Augur, much like the president is supposed to be, (I am glaring at you Obama) is not above the law, they are also under the law.  This isn’t from Okko Behrends, but notice how to Remus was not chosen as the first king of Rome because he lived on Aventine hill which was full of “inauspicious birds”.  The reason the birds were present was because Aventine hill was used for the disposal of garbage and dead bodies, remember if you will that the Aghori also live in grave yards.

Roman augurs were part of a collegium of priests who shared the duties and responsibilities of the position. At the foundation of the Republic in 510 BC, the patricians held sole claim to this office.

Augury sought the divine will regarding any proposed course of action which might affect Rome’s pax, fortuna and salus (peace, good fortune and wellbeing).[2] Political, military and civil actions were sanctioned by augury, historically performed by priests of the college of augurs and by haruspices on behalf of senior magistrates.

According to Cicero, the auctoritas of ius augurum included the right to adjourn and overturn the process of law: consular election could be – and was – rendered invalid by inaugural error. For Cicero, this made the augur the most powerful authority in the Republic.

In ancient Rome the auguria were considered to be in equilibrium with the sacra (“sacred things” or “rites”) and were not the only way by which the gods made their will known. The augures publici (public augurs) concerned themselves only with matters related to the state.

The jus augurale (augural law) was rigorously secret, therefore very little about the technical aspects of ceremonies and rituals has been recorded.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augur

Shiva Shakti - Maha Shivratri

If you examine the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra you will find that the deep intimate conversation between Shiva and Shakti about the nature of reality becomes the basis of philosophical and scientific reasoning.  It became the Sohbet of Rumi and Shams and before that it was the intimate conversations that Jesus had with his disciples and before that it was the discussion of the Rabbi’s discussing Torah, or the law of the universe among themselves.

This became the Parrhesia of the ancient Greeks:

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

The field of logic studies ways in which human beings reason through argument.[6]

  • The original Greek term was “λόγος”logos, the root of the modern English word “logic” but also a word which could mean for example “speech” or “explanation” or an “account” (of money handled).[7]
  • As a philosophical term logos was translated in its non-linguistic senses in Latin as ratio. This was originally not just a translation used for philosophy, but was also commonly a translation for logos in the sense of an account of money.[8]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reason

In rhetoric, parrhesia is a figure of speech described as: to speak candidly or to ask forgiveness for so speaking.[1] There are three different forms of parrhesia. Parrhesia is its nominal form, is translated from Latin to English meaning “free speech”. Parrhesiazomai in its verbal form is to use parrhesia, and parrhesiastes is the one who uses parrhesia for example “one who speaks the truth”. [2] The term parrhesia first appears in Greek literature in Euripides and can be found and used in ancient Greek texts all throughout the end of the fourth century and during fifth century A.D. [3] The term is borrowed from the Greek παρρησία (πᾶν “all” and ῥῆσις “utterance, speech”) meaning literally “to speak everything” and by extension “to speak freely,” “to speak boldly,” or “boldness.” It implies not only freedom of speech, but the obligation to speak the truth for the common good, even at personal risk.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parrhesia

and that became the sciences, the logy’s, or the logic of, teleology, biology, psychology, ecology, geology, etc.  Each logy would have a guru or teacher that specialized in that subject.  The entire western civilization evolved out of this process as well as the Western brain and the way western people think in general.  Our separation of powers, our checks and balances in the government, our sense of propriety, all of them came from the same place.

27 minutes: The name Augustus was chosen by Octavian chose the name Augustus the name of the High Priest of the Augure’s instead of the name Romulus the first king of Rome, he chose between the two names.

‘In my sixth and seventh consulships [28-27 BC], after I had extinguished civil wars, and at a time when with universal consent I was in complete control of affairs, I transferred the republic from my power to the dominion of the senate and people of Rome…After this time I excelled all in influence [auctoritas], although I possessed no more official power [potestas] than others who were my colleagues in the several magistracies.’ (Res Gestae Divi Augusti 34.1-3)[[1]]

46 minutes, the separation of powers, the leader can assume command of the military upon leaving the polis, but upon entering the polis must relinquish control of the millitary, (a legitimate leader must never use the military against his people).

Compare that with what President Obama recently did, is he giving power back to the people of the united states?  Is he more like Augustus or Julius Caesar?

In the exact sense, a tyrant is an individual who arrogates to himself the royal authority without having a right to it. This is how the Greeks understood the word ‘tyrant’: they applied it indifferently to good and bad princes whose authority was not legitimate. [Rousseau, “The Social Contract”]  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=tyrant

In a commentary of Oedipus I once read the author argued that Oedipus Rex should rightly have been called Oedipus Tyrannous because the original term didn’t have a negative meaning, it just meant popular ruler, Julius Caesar was very popular, he also was a usurper of the law.

PREEMPTIVE ARGUMENTS FOR THE HATERS

You are about to use the moving the goal fallacy with yourself as the goal and we are going to have an argument of infinite regress where you refuse to believe what I have just told you no matter how often I support it with facts.  You are not a linguisitic philosopher, an analytical philosopher or a philologist, I am.  Moreover, I am correct.

hamsa-temporary-tattoo

The Symbols above is known as the hamsa, it originated in India and was associated with the Jains, who were the Janis mentioned in the story of Moses.  The name comes from the Hindu concept of Harmlessness known as Ahimsa, notice the similar phonology?

Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli:[1]avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘not to injure’. The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.[2][3] Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings – including all animals – according to many Indian religions.[4]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa

The word itself derives from So Ham the inbreaths and outbreaths of Brahma if you are familiar with my work you know that I believe that Abraham and Brahma are one and the same, I am not the first or the only person who believes this.

Soham (सो ऽहम्so ‘ham[1]) is the Sanskrit for “I am He/That”. (See also: Tat Tvam Asi.)

When it applies to a person’s name, according to Vedic philosophy it means identifying oneself with the universe or ultimate reality. Some say that when a child is born it cries Koham-Koham which means Who am I? That is when the universe replies back Soham. You are the same as I am. It also stems from the Sanskrit word which means, “self pride.”

I am

“May [God] bless the lads, and let them carry my name, along with the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac. May they increase like fish in the land.” (Gen. 48:16)

The Talmud (Berachot 55b) explains that Joseph shared a special quality with fish:

“The fish in the waters are concealed by the water, and thus not susceptible to the Evil Eye. So too, the descendants of Joseph are not susceptible to the Evil Eye.” http://ravkooktorah.org/VAYEHI59.htm

Kabbalists such as myself know that “water” is a metaphor for Torah which is synonymous with the law of the Universe that is studied by rabbis, and augurs, and expounded.  Fish live in the water, so this zen like koan, which is so paradoxical is saying that the philosophers, the rational people need to be increased.  It is these philosophers who are protected from the evil eye.

The nounkohen is used in the Torah to refer to priests, both Jewish and non-Jewish, such as the Jewish nation as a whole,[1] as well as the priests (Hebrewkohanim) of Baal (2 Kings 10:19).

The Hebrew noun kohen is most often translated as “priest”, whether Jewish or pagan, such as the priests of Baal or Dagon, though Christian priests are referred to in Hebrew by the term komer (Hebrew כומר). The word derives from a Semitic root common, at minimum, to the Central Semitic languages; the cognateArabic wordكاهنkāhin means “soothsayer, augur, or priest“.

The Reason Obama Is Constitutionally and Morally Wrong.

2014-10-12-obama

Our Founding Fathers in their Genius and Love for us provided for us certain Positive Freedoms.  They created for us a government with checks and balances to protect us from tyranny in any form.  Our Representative Democracy was created to protect us from Tyranny in any form and one of those forms was The tyranny of the majority.

tyr•an•ny (ˈtɪr ə ni) 

n., pl. -nies.

1. arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.
2. the government or rule of a tyrant.
3. a state ruled by a tyrant.
4. oppressive or unjust government.
5. undue severity or harshness.
6. a tyrannical act.

Obama has embraced identity based politics and in doing so he is catering to the tyranny of the majority in order to arbitrarily turn the tide of public opinion in his favor.  Name dropping Ferguson Missouri in front of the United Nations, how would he feel if Michele Obama aired their dirty laundry in public?

Catering to the Mexican vote and the Vote of the Muslim majority the fastest growing population of the most illiterate and violent people on earth, is an obvious breach of protocol.

The phrase “tyranny of the majority” (or “tyranny of the masses“), used in discussing systems of democracy andmajority rule, involves the scenario in which decisions made by a majority place its interests above those of an individual or minority group, constituting active oppression comparable to that of tyrants and despots.[1] In many cases a disliked ethnic, religious or racial group is deliberately penalized by the majority element acting through the democratic process.[citation needed]

Supermajority rules, constitutional limits on the powers of a legislative body, and the introduction of a Bill of Rights have been used to counter the problem.[2] A separation of powers may also be implemented to prevent the problem from happening internally in a government.[2]

Obama, is planning on writing laws and passing them all by himself.

Obama was touted as the next Abraham Lincoln.  Lincoln was the great Uniter, he brought the people together and kept the Union in tact.  Obama is more like the great divider, we have never been more divided as a nation, Feminists, Christians, Muslims, Mexicans, Homosexuals.  It is more like he is trying to start a Civil War than prevent one.

Obama, intellectually, never developed beyond the point of being a biased lawyer, he never even tried to become the mental equivalent of a judge.  He was always one sided and prejudiced.  He has always been on one side, his own side, projecting his sense of self onto people that he identifies with and incapable of being impartial and judicious.

Our government was created to be a meritocracy of Reason and Results, not a tyranny of issues.  The world is not a better place since Obama’s rule began nor is the Nation.  To reward people based on their issues and their feelings of victimization when they haven’t raised themselves to a place where they can create value for people other than themselves, and to put them in positions of authority as equals is a sabotage of our government.  Failure is not equal to success.  Reason is not equal to unreason.  Tacitly validating people’s emotional appeals is a dynamic tautology of a logical fallacy.  The intensity of your emotion doesn’t make you any more correct.

In order to unleash the HIGHEST COMMON GOOD you need the consent of the wisest and most reasonableand most educated.  What Obama is doing is invoking the LOWEST COMMON GOOD.  He is dragging all Americans down to equality with hood rats, and welfare babies in the ghettos of the United States that only parasite off the economy, and they will only ever parasite off the economy because while they benefit from an increased quality of life in the United States they are also contemptuous of our values, the values that create the surplus that creates their quality of life.

Every act of theft or unwarranted gain in a monetary unit decreases all of the value of all of the money in that monetary unit proportionately.  Instead of being lead by our better angels Obama is being lead by his worser demons. 

There are certain terms that are synonymous with tyranny.

Arbitrary comes from the Latin arbitrarius, the source of arbiter; someone who is tasked to judge some matter.[2] An arbitrary legal judgment is a decision made at the discretion of the judge, not one that is fixed by law.[3] In some countries, a prohibition of arbitrariness is enshrined into the constitution.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitrariness

When one rules in such a way as to create a disparate impact in favor of a people incapable of reimbursing or equitably returning whatever they were granted, and without an inclination to be appreciative for whatever gain they accrue from the source of that accrual, that is an act of theft and sabotage.  That is rewarding failure and punishing success.

IN CLOSING

I will leave you with this…

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;[7]

 We…solemnly publish and declare, that these colonies are and of a right ought to be free and independent states…and for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honour.”

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Thomas Jefferson

That part of the world has always been synonymous with tyranny…

tyranny of Islam

http://muslimsagainstvoting.wordpress.com/

And We have indeed sent to every nation a Messenger (saying to his people): ‘Worship Allaah alone and avoid the Taaghoot (false deities).’” [Soorah an-Nahl: 36.]

Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’aan: “So know that Laa ilaaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah)…” (EMQ Muhammad, 47: 19)

Worship in Islam has so many facets that it is difficult to describe them all in words.  The most general meaning of worship in Islam is inclusive of everything which is pleasing to God, whether they deal with issues of belief, or deeds of the body.  It may include everything a person perceives, thinks, intends, feels, says and does.  It also refers to everything that God requires, external, internal or interactive.  This includes rituals as well as beliefs, work, social activities, and personal behavior, as human being is a whole, such that every part affects every other.

Worship may be classified into two types:

1)    Specific Beliefs, feelings and visible acts of devotion paid in homage to God which He has commanded.

2)    All other acts of goodness generally encouraged in the life of a Muslim.

http://www.islamreligion.com/articles/222/

The definition goes something like this:

“Worship is an all inclusive term for all that God loves of external and internal sayings and actions of a person.”

In other words, worship is everything one says or does for the pleasure of Allah. This, of course, includes rituals as well as beliefs, social activities, and personal contributions to the welfare of one’s fellow human-beings. Islam looks at the individual as a whole. He is required to submit himself completely to Allah, as the Quran instructed the Prophet Muhammad to do:

“Say (O Muhammad) my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death belong to Allah; He has no partner and I am ordered to be among those who submit, i.e.; Muslims.” (6:162, 163)

The natural result of this submission is that all one’s activities should conform to the instructions of the one to whom the person is submitting. Islam, being a way of life, requires that its followers model their life according to its teachings in every aspect, religious or other wise.

http://www.islam101.com/dawah/05_concept_worship.html

In Islam, worship is the very purpose of our existence. God declares in the Quran, the holy book of Islam, “I did not create … mankind except to worship Me” (51:56). Muslims worship God, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, out of love and submission. They believe that He is the One God (Allahin Arabic) who is completely unique and only He deserves to be worshipped.

Worshipping God is a comprehensive concept within Islam. Along with traditional rituals, such as praying and fasting, it also consists of any lawful action a person does with God-consciousness and in the hopes of earning reward from Almighty God. Therefore, devoting oneself to God in Islam does not require a person to enter a place of worship nor embrace monasticism. Rather, fulfilling this purpose of life is an active daily pursuit from the Islamic perspective. Hence, a Muslim can be engaged in worship throughout the day, be it at home, work or anywhere else.

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.

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.
