A strange sort of dyslexia is taking over lately, yet at the same time is revealing more than I could attempt to through rationalization.

800
-444
____
356

The sum is actually 356 instead of 365.

But it is at least 3 + 3 + 3 dias before the end of a full year.

365 356
sum / difference

36 63

3 6 56 3

My personal experience is that the dyslexic effect seems related to the " As above, so below " ... in the transformation, there are either mirror images related, or something like a 180 deg twist.

This 180 deg twist is illustrate on the front cover of the 1st Maranatha puzzle, where the top ( above ) portion is rotated 180 deg to provide the bottom ( below ) portion.

My favorite thus far are those in London (Main Lodge) and in New York.

This, despite having walked through a museum prior to the tour filled with many seemingly desperate attempts at trying to recreate an accurate model of Solomon's temple, collections of regalia and aprons with images of temples, pentagrams, skulls, floating eyes, etc.

An uninterested person could even see there is more to it.

In New York, the attitude was much different. More gruff and snappy as could be expected in that city, but I found their responses to questions much more interesting.
In one chamber, a member of the tour asks "What is the significance of there being only 3 posts surrounding the altar, instead of 4?":

The Mason/Guide responds: "You're asking is there any meaning behind the 3 and the 4? Ok, well there's 3 degrees in Freemasonry, so there you go, that's easy. Is there something behind the 4, is there some meaning...? To me there isn't!"

The group moves on, to another room with a different Mason/Guide. This room is thematically Egyptian.

Another person in the group asks, "Is there some significance to the missing keystone in the arch there?"

The Guide responds, "Well, actually there is PROFOUND significance to that but I don't want to waste everyone's time here since were here to just look at the room."
Another person asks, "Is there some spiritual significance behind the the temple and the room in general?"

To my astonishment, the testy man answers, "Really all there is to it is that we are attempting to rebuild the temple of Solomon inside us, allegorically. There's really nothing else interesting to say about it. I'm not trying to be coy or anything, if you want to find out more- its all out there, its common knowledge, you can just go online and type a search for 'Secrets of Freemasonry' really that's it."

One book I've had great fun reading over the past few years is "The Lost Word its Hidden Meaning" by George Steinmetz. Knowing Duncan's connection to Freemasonry, I often wish he were available to discuss some of these issues further.

The significance of the 10 13 , for example, you can see the Templars date, and the "Et in Arcadia Ego" image p. numbers.

Thanks hayward. Very neat.

Was there any indication as to who was said to have discovered it ... and was there any implication that George Washington did ?

Forrest, re: Invictus ... he has some extremely unique skills that are not seen often, reminds me much of the Maranatha.

# 11 - It requires a quite different perspective on Reality for # 11, I'd say. One that is not commonly even considered. In a perspective like Neale Walsch ( " Converstions with God " ), known language is used to communicate with All. There are many elements which could be considered " talking to oneself " ( whatever that ultimately means ).

In the # 11, it seems more like a shamanistic view, or as expressed in something like Eckankar. There is an huge additional component of the human experience available, which integrates a person as an interactive part of the Whole, not separate anymore.

Your "Robin" example the other day...
Something else ...

Several days ago, our 12 year old daughter related an incident she had read about, where a girl came out of coma, able to speak a foreign language ( German, I believe ). We discussed how that might be possible, and she suggested that perhaps the girl had subconsciously stored enough German conversation ( from life experience, TV, etc. ) to somehow integrate and extrapolate the language while she was in coma. I don't know, it is an interesting idea.

It reminded me of this incident, but a seeker of the Kundalini integration:
Though he had no experience and his verses were poor he persisted, about a month later he was walking on the street when suddenly he became lost in his own mind, completely detached from his physical surrounding. It was then that two perfectly formed lines of poetry came out of the ether in his native tongue Kashmiri. His excitement became more apparent and amazed when over the next few weeks he received poems in English, Persian, Punjabi, German, French, Italian and Arabic. What was so incredible was that he had never heard nor read anything in German, French, or many of the later languages. Where did these poems come from?

From an objective perspective, I'd need to see the proof that it happened. Subjectively, and having read some of his books, I don't see why he would make it up.

If true, this would be much harder to explain than the girl in coma. Gopi did not have much access to multimedia ( except possible radio ) in those days, as far as I kown.
