# Thread: Thoughts and Findings related to the Maranatha "Key" Pt. II

1. You must raise your mast before setting sail

2. 'their eye behold the truth'

Did you know there is an I in Truth?

3. So seat the robe on your shoulders like the Mast-er, you follow?

4. All this Raising and Digging is making me Tyred

5. "The Egyptian Staff is the rod that the masters used to measure their work"

What is interesting about the "Gardener" staff:

Using it, as in such a place as ancient Egypt, they were able to accurately mark up land and crop borders. Using the old formula of 3, 4, 5 to produce a triangle with its sides measured in these units, they could accurate create square borders around their plots.

In such a fashion:

Several might recognize this as the Pythagorean theorem.

But I suppose, the Masters, using an Egyptian staff (shepherd's crook) would just do away with measuring squares and go straight to circles.

Funny, its like they absolutely knew nothing!

6. Raise or Raze-

Interesting that the two terms seem to have the same meaning.

7. Pretty soon EVERYthing will seem to be speaking it. Like leaning a new word for the first time and then noticing that it is being used everywhere.

Sport and fashion logos seen out in public recently:

(nice to see the word Kipling reversed below as well)

Three letters pointed to by the star=
L
N I

L= Lamed (Hebrew) = 22nd path, 11th Key, Card of Justice = Scales of Libra
I = Yod = 20th path, 9th Key, Card of the Hermit = Virgo
N = Nun = 24th path, 13th Key, Card of Death = Scorpio

But in case you happen to notice that the lower right point of the star points to the middle of I and a reversed P, I would simply further point to the "P" in Resh (Greek R/Hebrew Resh) equating with Sol, slain and risen.

"G"uess?

The inverted triangle points to 2, 6, and 10 on the clock
An opposing upright triangle would point to 12, 5, and 7.

2 + 6 + 10= 18. 8 + 1 = 9
12 + 5 + 7= 24. 2 + 4 = 6

only different between 9 and 6 is 180 degrees.

8. In a couple of dias:

January 17th

As mentioned before,
January 17th is 23.5 days past Christmas.

Suggested that since our year is so close to 360 degrees, those of a complete circle, Christmas is the point of return, the end of the solar year, beginning of a new one. (and yes, despite the fact that the winter solstice and celebration of Christmas are a few days off from one another. = precession?).

January the 17th is the symbolic day of "correction", straightening, truing.

What did you think these tools were for?

Plumb, level, square

Plumb line centering the keystone in the arch.

By doing so- creating a bridge between beneath and above.

9. But please note, the plumbline has to be lowered from above.

Hi hayward,

Did you ever get the chance to measure the angle between the two sun glyph, to vertical, on p. 13 of the "Et in Arcadia" puzzle ?

Likewise wondering if you had seen the "KEY" on p. 23.5, column 9 ?
