11. The Crescent II [Books]
... , but often depicted them in an inverted position above the Aten. The inverted peaks simultaneously mean "the above" and "concealment" or "obscurity." Together, the upright and inverted peaks represent both the full cycle of the day and the full circle (above and below) of the celestial kingdom. 150. Khut and Ankh, interchangeable symbols of the twin-peaked mountains a. b. 151. (a , b) Egyptian illustrations of the Ankh, with outstretched arms holding aloft the Aten.

... in the Cretan labyrinth. THE THREAD OF ARIADNE There is a Jewish tradition that when the sons of Aaron were killed by the ark, thin threads of flame went from the ark to their nostrils. The Greek lin- is flax, and thread. Could its derivation be El, and in-, presence of El? The Egyptian ankh could be held and pointed at a person's nose in order to give him life. There may be a link here between the Egyptians and the Hebrews. The ankh, as an electrical symbol, was a device that could kill as well as give life. What was the nature of the thread of Ariadne which was so useful to ...
13. Symbols of an Ancient Sky: Slide Presentation & Notes by David Talbott [Journals] [Aeon]
... key to the imagery of the revolving crescent is its relationship to the polar column," writes Talbott. (p . 159.) This relationship can be seen in the Zuni Thunderbird, the Mesopotamian wheel of Shamash resting on its pillar, the Scandinavian bull of heaven, and the Hindu mountain of the moon. And what is the ankh but a stylized image of the pillar and crescent? [3 ] Or consider the famous eye of Horus. Couldn't it be the stylized spiraling eye of the goddess within Saturn, topped by the eyebrow crescent of Saturn at noon and the descending pupil, the axis mundi of Mars? States Talbott: "I have brashly claimed that ...
14. KA [Books]
... Sacerdos is a priest. There are two kinds of priest, those who are in charge of ceremonies and rites, and those who interpret the utterances of prophets. The verb sacrare means both to consecrate and to doom to destruction. The poet Horace uses it with the meaning to immortalise in a poem'. The Egyptian symbol, the ankh means life, or to live. In Egyptian, an intransitive verb such as to live can have an s' prefixed to give it a causative force. Thus, sankh means to make to live. Here, I suggest, we have the origin of the Latin verb sancio. A hieroglyphic text from Thebes tells of the application ...
15. The Uses of Language [Books] [de Grazia books]
... or And as it was ascribed phallic meaning in Greece, so it was in Egypt. The statue of Horus at Coptos has a phallus in his hands which is said to have been taken from Typhon (the monster, the part of Venus-Hephaestus, that crashed into Earth). Isis-Athena and Typhon-Hephaestus are recalled unconsciously in the symbol of the ankh, both as comets and as dismembered comets. It then recalls terror and can join with the castration fear, so that the phallic symbol and the astronomical symbol unite in a syllable that is both pornographic and anxiety-causing. But, with typical ambivalence, the ankh comes down to us in a long procession led by the Christian church, ...

17. The Two Faces of Love [Books] [de Grazia books]
... and seems unisexual. Pilgrims to Paphos there received gifts of a phallus and salt, ' the latter standing probably for the sea-froth and semen of which the goddess was born. In Rome, like New York City, anything could be found, including this, too. The case for bearded Aphrodites representing the planet Venus occurs partly because the ankh (shown below), the crux ansata or cross with a handle, ' is associated with both the planet and with a number of representations that must be regarded as the goddess Aphrodite. The ankh is an ambivalent symbol that denotes bisexuality, a combined phallus and vulva. The cometary references seem clear, for a comet's generally round ...

... is not known; .. ." May I be permitted to offer an origin? The word Danaus is a phonetic transcription [by the Greeks] of Ta-nu-it, the place of Nut's sycamore. In Egyptian mythology the goddess Nut gave birth to Osiris under a sycamore, and the heart wood of that tree was needed to make the Ankh, or life-giving cross. From the Third Dynasty on Egypt became the "Land of the Sycamores". Further information on all this can be found in Albert Slosman's La Grande Hypothese. - Gordon Turner, Montfort l'Amoury, France Information Please!Dear Sir, In my letter, "Eric Crew and the Tippe-top" (Workshop 4 ...

ARTUR ISENBERG Jerusalem That Ankh FROM DR A. DE GRAZIA Sir, I see that Dr Z.
