Shifting Sands, The Morphing of Mythologies

Plutarch states in Moralia V, On Isis and Osiris "Therefore the effort to arrive at the Truth, and especially the truth about the gods, is a longing for the divine. For the search for truth requires for its study and investigation the consideration of sacred subjects, and it is a work more hallowed than any form of holy living or temple service; and, not least of all, it is well-pleasing to that goddess whom you worship, a goddess exceptionally wise and a lover of wisdom, to whom, fas her name at least seems to indicate, knowledge and understanding are in the highest degree appropriate."

A practical way to read the above statement is to, well, be practical. If you view the world through one eye, how is your ability to perceive depth and perspective? It is completely impaired. So what is necessary is to have "two eyes" so that one can form a triangulation upon which depth perception can be perceived. In otherwords, your ability to percieve and gain perspective to the larger contruct is greatly impaired through the focus on any given particular system: the Construct is not contained in any one given system and instead has been purposely shred and torn and spread across multiple systems.

Plutarch states this equally when he refers to Jehovah/Typhon/Seth when he states the following in "Moralia V, On Isis and Osiris", "For Isis is a Greek word,6 and so also is Typhon, her enemy, who is conceited, as his name implies, because of his ignorance and self-deception. He tears to pieces and scatters to the winds the sacred writings, which the goddess collects and puts together and gives into the keeping of those that are initiated into the holy rites, since this consecration, by a strict regimen and by abstinence from many kinds of food and from the lusts of the flesh, curtails licentiousness and the love of pleasure, and induces a habit of patient submission to the stern and rigorous services in shrines, the end and aim of which is the knowledge of Him who is the First, the Lord of All, the Ideal One."

Isis as "The Owl" (two) in close proximity and communion with "the Ideal 1".

The process of analysing and placing mythology into a comprehensive global system is akin to "collecting up all the pieces" and placing them into the hands of "the initiated", who can then proceed to piece the puzzle that has been torn asunder by Seth. The various myths can be construed to be interlinked (hence the common themes), each shifting depending on the local significances. Furthermore, since the myths are acroamatic ciphers, what we find is that various myths are imbedding archetypical information regarding specific Letters, who are themselves worshipped as "gods", who together comprise the "the Ideal One", which becomes the Alphabet as a "hyper-dimensional representation of Pi."

F.D. Buck, writing in "The Symbolism of Freemasonry"explains, "The modifications or transpositions of sacred nomenclatures as they passed from one race to another, were generally cleverly accomplished as to assimilate their esoteric qualities with symbolif formulae of local significance...to return to the alphabetical relations of these three isolated letters. We are compelled to recognise them as the first, the thirteenth and twenty-sixth letters of a twenty six letter alphabet..."

What remains is solving for elements of "truth", propensities of "truth", measurements of "truth", preponderances of "truth", etc. This can only be fully comprehended by an understanding of the mythological framework set against a master "archetypical Key".

For instance, there are two primary tales of the "Deluge" used within the Illuminatus, one, the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Story of Noah. Each tale describes in detail a flood that destroyed humankind. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, we read the following:

Tablet XI, Column iv

From afar the lady of the gods (Isis/Ishtar) came down.
[From the corpses] she raied up the [iridescent] fly which anu made for love-making.
'Gods, let me not forget this, by the power of the lapiz lazuli on my neck.
These [evil] days I will remember and never forget.
Gods, approach the offering.
But let Enlil not approach the offering,
for without discussion [in the assembly of the Gods] he brought on Flood,
and my people he numbered for slaughter'

As soon as Enlil arrived
he spotted the ark. Enlil was furious.
He was filled with the wrath of the gods, the Igigi.
'Has life-breath escaped? No man was meant to live through the devastation!"

Ninurta shaped his mouth to speak, saying to warrior Enlil:
'You, shrewd one of the gods, warrior.
how is it - how could you - without talking it through, send the Flood?"

Needless to say, the evidence of "other gods", or that Enlil/Jehovah/Typhon/Seth was seen to near criminal if not completely careless and lacking in forsight, is wholly missing from the Judeo versions. Without this persective, the Judeo versions gain wholly too much importance and relevance that when takin into perspective, become wholly unjustified: there is more to the myth that is not being said in the single eye (Bible/Torah analysis) only.

The Lakota speak of Unkehti, a water monster (female) that fought the humans and caused the Flood, while the Apache story of northern New Mexico states that "When the rains came, only a few people made it to the mountain tops and shut their eyes. Those who looked at the flood turned into a fish or frog (as did some who were caught in the flood); if they looked at the sky, they turned into a bird. The people sitting on the mountains were told, when they got hungry, to think of food, and Dios would feed them.""

All of these are important clues to understanding the current Construct.

When children are sent to "school", and fish that swim together are called "a school of fish", each of these archetypes is fused to the Deluge in mythology, with the implication that it is humanity that is "drowned", still, or as stated in the Epic of Gilgamesh, "Forever my people shall be as fish in the sea!"

Understanding the various Mythologies aid in the crafting the current Construct is critical to getting passed the spell of the crafted reality. A "rampage" makes more esoteric sense when compared to the idea of Noah leading the animals ark via 'the ramp', or that an "error" and an "error rat" hints at the differnces between Illuminatus associated with Noah (Noahidism) and those associated with Gilgamesh.

That mankind lives in a state of "delusion" hints strongly at the archetypical ideal imbedded into "the Deluge". Following the morphing mythologies aids greatly in gaining insights into how this is all so.
