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 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.
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
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?”
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). 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
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. 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. The concept of reason is sometimes referred to as rationality and sometimes as discursive reason, in opposition to intuitive reason.
- 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).
- 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. 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. 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”.  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.  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)[]
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.
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: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. Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings – including all animals – according to many Indian religions. 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.
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.”
“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 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“.
It is not my intention to bore you. I wanted to explain some things to you about the bible. The people that wrote the bible didn’t take it literally because it was written in PaRDeS, the word PaRDeS phonetically mimics the word Paradise.
Four men entered pardes — Ben Azzai, Ben Zoma, Acher (Elisha ben Abuyah), and Akiba. Ben Azzai looked and died; Ben Zoma looked and went mad; Acher destroyed the plants; Akiba entered in peace and departed in peace.
Rashi explains that they ascended to Heaven by utilizing the Divine Name, which might be understood as achieving a spiritual elevation through Jewish meditationpractices. PaRDeS-exegesis is an acronym for the 4 traditional methods of exegesis in Judaism. In this sense, they were the four to understand the whole Torah. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardes_(legend)#Exposition
This is a pretty good commentary on the exegesis of this legend metaphor:
It might interest you to know that Muslims assume that the Jews altered the bible because while it foretells the coming of the messiah, it doesn’t foretell the coming of Mohammed.
The reason the name of god is ineffable is that it isn’t spoken with words, it is spoken with your thoughts, your words, your emotions, and your actions. When the Jews Helenized the absorbed the Greek Philosophy. YHWH is a metaphor for praxis. Praxis could be simplified into the concept of living your philosophy which is rational and by which one can be falsified. A psychopathic philosophy for example (Islam) cannot be used to falsify the individual Muslim or Muslims collectively because it can only be used for proving them correct. . .
Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied, or realised. “Praxis” may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realizing, or practicing ideas. This has been a recurrent topic in the field of philosophy, discussed in the writings of Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, Immanuel Kant, Søren Kierkegaard, Karl Marx, Martin Heidegger,Hannah Arendt, Paulo Freire, Ludwig von Mises, and many others. It has meaning in the political, educational, and spiritual realms.
The first five books of the bible are known as the torah or the Pentateuch, which is the extended version of god’s name. Curiously it was written without vowels. I think the significance of this is that each character of the Pentateuch represents a human being, the vowels weren’t added because they represented the feminine or the way in which all of the characters were connected to everything else. Which is to say the way you pronounce god’s name on a global scale is through the correct relationship between everybody. This also allowed different interpretations of Jewish faith to be codified in a way since that interpretation couldn’t be disproved which created a similar pattern to the Sanatana Dharma in India.
Rabbis have a linguistic fetish and they play word games to look for hidden messages and to see things differently. It is a source of inspiration. If you consider my theory that Neural Myelination is passed on through cellular memory ask yourselves why are their so many Jewish comedians, lawyers, surgeons, philosophers, actors, and psychologists? It was because of meditating on the Torah. The laws of the Torah cement a democratic society that is cohesive, and it protects itself from psychological factors or economic factors that could tear the community apart.
The Bible Code is just such a meditation that the Rabbis meditate on. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bible_code
This is probably a little less credible but still fun, in the english version of the bible code one of my Nom de plumes has a bible code matrix, let’s see how accurate it is.
The first two chapters of the bible are Genisis (going in) and Exodus (going out). What is the first thing you do when you are born? What is the last thing you do when you die? First you inspire and then you expire.
Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. genesis 2:7
inspire (v.)mid-14c., enspiren, “to fill (the mind, heart, etc., with grace, etc.);” also “to prompt or induce (someone to do something),” from Old French enspirer (13c.), from Latininspirare “inflame; blow into” (see inspiration), a loan-translation of Greek pnein in the Bible. General sense of “influence or animate with an idea or purpose” is from late 14c. Also sometimes used in literal sense in Middle English. Related: Inspired; inspires; inspiring. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=inspire
Of further interest is that Rabbi Maimon said that the account of Moses was written in the present tense, which means get away from the Mizraim right now. The Mizraim are the nations, specifically Babylon and Egypt. Remember that Babylon (ancient Persia) was constantly trying to expand in increase it’s authority and that threat went all the way to Greece during the battle of Thermopylae. The Bible was written by a people trying to maintain their identity and separate themselves from the ancient Persio/Babylonian mentality.
As a god worshipped by the Phoenicians and Canaanites, Moloch had associations with a particular kind of propitiatorychild sacrifice by parents. Moloch figures in the Book of Deuteronomy and in the Book of Leviticus as a form of idolatry(Leviticus 18:21: “And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Moloch”). In the Old Testament,Gehenna was a valley by Jerusalem, where apostate Israelites and followers of various Baalim and Caananite gods, including Moloch, sacrificed their children by fire (2 Chr. 28:3, 33:6; Jer. 7:31, 19:2–6).
I am trying to figure out how to tell you this, without freaking you out. Many of you have noticed a bizarre and unexplainable energy shift at 11:11 where for no particular reason you find yourself looking at the clock at exactly that time, over and over again. You are going to have to meditate on this in order to unlock deeper personal meaning.
In gambling, snake eyes is the outcome of rolling the dice in a game and getting only one pip on each die. The pair of pips resembles a pair of eyes, which is appended to the term ‘snake’ because of the long-standing association of this word with treachery and betrayal. The dictionary of etymology traces that use of the term back to 1929, although it may be traced all the way back to the ancient Roman dice games, where ‘Dogs’ represented two ones. They referred to this as “the dog throw”. In modern parlance, it refers to such a roll in any game involving dice. Snake eyes also refers to looking one way and passing the ball the other way in the game of Taps.
Lucifer is the god of luck. Lucky fire. Not in a bad way in a good way. When the moneyed powers feel that they have all of the cards in their hands and they can’t lose the god of luck tips the scales in his favor and in the favor of the righteous. I am telling you this because this is what was revealed to me. I kick more light than most people but I have been waiting until the correct time in order to convey this to you. Because you weren’t ready for it. The continuing worsening of the world situation and opened your minds, a little, and you are able to conceive of a deeper level of meaning instead of the happy horseshit being spewed by the fruity spiritualists trying to keep you in an unconscious state of malaise.
Each 1 symbolizes on letter in god’s name. God is a reptilian. He looks like a human because he is an alien hybrid. Still he is very self conscious about his face, which is why he doesn’t like people looking at his face. God, while being much younger and boyish looking, always looks like a youth of about 18 years of age in perfect health. But he is self conscious about his face as it looks different to himself than it does to everybody else. Also he is characterized by the way in which people consistently reject him and panic at what he tells them. His relationships with people communicate to him that he is hideous and ugly. He feels about himself the way he is treated by people.
Prosopagnosia (Greek: “prosopon” = “face”, “agnosia” = “not knowing”), also called face blindness, is a cognitive disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing (e.g., object discrimination) and intellectual functioning (e.g., decision making) remain intact. The term originally referred to a condition following acute brain damage(acquired prosopagnosia), but a congenital or developmental form of the disorder also exists, which may affect up to 2.5% of the population. The specific brain area usually associated with prosopagnosia is the fusiform gyrus, which activates specifically in response to faces. Thanks to this specialization, most people recognize faces much more effectively than they do similarly complex inanimate objects. For those with prosopagnosia, the ability to recognize faces depends on the less-sensitive object recognition system.
Because he doesn’t think like other people he no longer listens to faces, being an empath and a sympath he knows what people are thinking and feeling, and he knows that faces lie.
A lion-faced deity found on a Gnostic gem in Bernard de Montfaucon’s L’antiquité expliquée et représentée en figures may be a depiction of the Demiurge.
In the Ophite and Sethian systems, which have many affinities with that last mentioned, the making of the world is ascribed to a company of sevenarchons, whose names are given, but their chief, “Yaldabaoth” (also known as “Yaltabaoth” or “Ialdabaoth”) comes into still greater prominence.
In the Apocryphon of John c. 120-180 AD, the Demiurge arrogantly declares that he has made the world by himself:
Now the archon (ruler) who is weak has three names. The first name is Yaltabaoth, the second is Saklas (“fool”), and the third is Samael. And he is impious in his arrogance which is in him. For he said, “I am God and there is no other God beside me,” for he is ignorant of his strength, the place from which he had come.
He is Demiurge and maker of man, but as a ray of light from above enters the body of man and gives him a soul, Yaldabaoth is filled with envy; he tries to limit man’s knowledge by forbidding him the fruit of knowledge in paradise. At the consummation of all things all light will return to thePleroma. But Yaldabaoth, the Demiurge, with the material world, will be cast into the lower depths.
Yaldabaoth is frequently called “the Lion-faced”, leontoeides, with the body of a serpent. We are told also that the Demiurge is of a fiery nature, the words of Moses being applied to him, “the Lord our God is a burning and consuming fire,” a text which Hippolytus claims was also used by Simon.
In Pistis Sophia Yaldabaoth has already sunk from his high estate and resides in Chaos, where, with his forty-nine demons, he tortures wicked souls in boiling rivers of pitch, and with other punishments (pp. 257, 382). He is an archon with the face of a lion, half flame and half darkness.
Under the name of Nebro (rebel), Yaldabaoth is called an angel in the apocryphal Gospel of Judas. He is first mentioned in “The Cosmos, Chaos, and the Underworld” as one of the twelve angels to come “into being [to] rule over chaos and the [underworld]”. He comes from heaven, his “face flashed with fire and whose appearance was defiled with blood”. Nebro creates six angels in addition to the angel Saklas to be his assistants. These six in turn create another twelve angels “with each one receiving a portion in the heavens.”
Don’t forget that the last god in the old 7 planet astrological system is Saturn, Cronos, time, he eats his children, everybody dies. He is the last god of death (titans) and Jupiter, Zeus, yhwh is the first god of life. Should the gods of life not perform their duties, the authority returns to the god of death.
That is right, the creator is also the devil. The 4 letters of his name represent the 4 elements, a world at war with itself. Contemplate the 4 directions of the cross without a center. Love, justice, wisdom, responsibility, as you move away from the center you move towards corrupt expression. In order for it to be loving, just, true, and responsible it also has to be all of the other things at the same time. They are all connected in the center, in the source.
Tifaret is the Solomon of the tree of life, it brings all of the righteous people from all over the world together under the auspices of reason, making everybody equal under reason, aequalitatus sub ratio.
Now contemplate this, in the parable of the prodigal son, the son that leaves and squanders his inheritance represents mankind. While the son that never leaves represents the angels. The reason that the son is welcomed back is because that is the purpose of his having left. Life on earth, exists so that we can perform THE WORK OF GOD, TO BE LIKE GOD, TO UNDERSTAND GOD, TO TAKE IN ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.
Theurgy (from Greek θεουργία) describes the practice of rituals, sometimes seen as magical in nature, performed with the intention of invoking the action or evoking the presence of one or more gods, especially with the goal of uniting with the divine, achieving henosis, and perfecting oneself.
- Proclus (c. 480): theurgy is “a power higher than all human wisdom embracing the blessings of divination, the purifying powers of initiation and in a word all the operations of divine possession”
- Keith Thomas: “Spiritual magic or theurgy was based on the idea that one could reach God in an ascent up the scale of creation made possible by a rigorous course of prayer, fasting and devotional preparation.”
- Anne Sheppard: “Theurgy, the religious magic practised by the later Neoplatonists, has been commonly regarded as the point at which Neoplatonism degenerates into magic, superstition and irrationalism. A superficial glance at the ancient lives of the Neoplatonists, and in particular at Eunapius‘ Lives of the Sophists, reveals a group of people interested in animating statues, favoured with visions of gods and demons, and skilled in rain-making”
- Pierre A. Riffard: “Theurgy is a type of magic. It consists of a set of magical practices performed to evoke beneficent spirits in order to see them or know them or in order to influence them, for instance by forcing them to animate a statue, to inhabit a human being (such as a medium), or to disclose mysteries.”
Theurgy is the work of god.
For the director of music. According to gittith.b A psalm of David.
1Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens.
2Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. 3When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?c 5You have made themd a little lower than the angels and crowned themf with glory and honor. 6You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under theirg feet: 7all flocks and herds,and the animals of the wild,8the birds in the sky,and the fish in the sea,all that swim the paths of the seas.
(Joshua and Kimberly, read Hebrews 1, the whole chapter and meditate on it.)
If you observe the placement of the letters “M” and “N” in the english alphabet you realize that they are the 13th and 14th letters in the alphabet placing them exactly opposite from the first and last letters of the alphabet. So if god is the alpha and the omega, then man is his reflection on earth. Manifest, Amen, Ammun, moon, Man, mind, monad, mint, mensch, mnemonic. Just as the moon reflects the light of the sun, man reflects the light of god.
26 letters in the alphabet. 13 plus 13. the lunar calendar has 13 months, not 12.
Native Americans used turtle shells as lunar calendars because of the 13 large portions on the back of a turtle.
Perhaps this is where the myth of the earth resting on the back of turtles comes from.
Furthermore, it is obvious to me that our alphabet was stretched for some particular reason which I believe that I can shed some light on. We have certain redundancies of letters and sounds that are not necessary. I believe that it was stretched from the Hebrew alphabet which has 22 letters, which is not to say that it comes from the hebrew alphabet but that it was necessary to achieve the number 26 for certain occult purposes.
The numeric value of YHWH is 26. After the Hellenization of the Jews Jupiter became Jehovah, Jove, Jah. Zeus is Jehovah. 72 +72 = 144 the same as 12 x 12. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/144000_(number)
7 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God.He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: 3 “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” 4 Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.
5 From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed,
from the tribe of Reuben 12,000,
from the tribe of Gad 12,000,
6 from the tribe of Asher 12,000,
from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000,
from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
7 from the tribe of Simeon 12,000,
from the tribe of Levi 12,000,
from the tribe of Issachar 12,000,
8 from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000,
from the tribe of Joseph 12,000,
from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000.
Also of note is the facility with which these numbers divide into 360 as in the degrees of the zodiac. 360/72=5. 144/72=2. 360 / 144= 2.5. Not to mention the meaning of the number 13 as a number of revolution. Mary Magdalene being the 13th disciple, and the knights Templar being turned on by the French king on October Friday the 13th, in 1307.
But let’s examine how the arrived at the number 26, shall we. We need 4 extra letters to get from 22 to 26.
if you think that the english alphabet was stretched from the greek alphabet then there is only the need for two more letters which would be supplied by the redundancies in U, V, and W. Double, yoo, not double V as it appears, showing that all three of these letters come from the same original letter and were stretched into vowels and consonants, a hard V and a latent V in the form of W. You might also think that T and D are related, D being a soft T, or H and K being soft and hard versions of one another and the truth is I don’t know. But one letter I am sure of it the letter J.
The letter ‘J’ originated as a swash character, used for the letter ‘i’ at the end of Roman numerals when following another ‘i’, as in ‘xxiij’ instead of ‘xxiii’ for the Roman numeral representing 23. A distinctive usage emerged in Middle High German. Gian Giorgio Trissino(1478–1550) was the first to explicitly distinguish I and J as representing separate sounds, in his Ɛpistola del Trissino de le lettere nuωvamente aggiunte ne la lingua italiana (“Trissino’s epistle about the letters recently added in the Italian language”) of 1524.Originally, ‘I’ and ‘J’ were different shapes for the same letter, both equally representing /i/, /iː/, and /j/; but Romance languagesdeveloped new sounds (from former /j/ and /ɡ/) that came to be represented as ‘I’ and ‘J’; therefore, English J, acquired from the FrenchJ, has a sound value quite different from /j/ (which represents the initial sound in the English word “yet”).
Jesus name used to be Iaesus, and the letter that is in both Jove/Jehovah and Jesus is the letter J, the 10th letter of the alphabet. Interesting that the hebrews, who I sometimes refer to as the cult of 10, with their obsession with the number 10, their decimal system, their 10 plagues, their 10 commandments, their tithing, etc. would choose to leave their mark in the 10th letter of the aleph beth.
The reason that the ineffable name can’t be pronounced is because it is “pronounced” with your thoughts, actions, and emotions, as well as your words. The Greeks Hellenized and the Greek God Zeus, Jupiter, Jove became the Jewish god Jehovah.
A forgotten concept in early philosophy was Praxis, it means walking your talk, letting your philosophy inform your behavior. The words practice and process come from that word as in due process. Since in the cult of the Augures even the high priest was not above the law even he had to adhere to the Praxis. If your philosophy didn’t get results in the world it was invalid and you were irrational, lawless, godless. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Praxis
Jesus was called the Logos because he was the incarnation of logic, he practiced the sciences of the day, philosophy, praxis, debate, and healing medicine. He was a wandering philosopher and a shaktipat guru. All of the sciences have the suffix “ology” as do all of the philosophical arts. He was the son of god because he was reasonable, just as the high priest of the cult of the augures, from where the word Auctoritas or authority comes from had to obey and communicate the law like a prophet.
