Danny our Documentary poet wrote;
Ô Soul of Isis...
Bast, Sail Ba-Aset
Through the Heart River Red and Bed...
Leap! and Lips-Reach the Sun-Sea of Love!
Drink the Mead of the Gods!
Move from Below to Above
Beat the Drum of the Neo Lion

4 Times Twelve is Now Thy Work;
In Egypt the several bodies of Man, the astral, etheric and physical
were described in terms of Ba and Ka and several other terms.
Naturally you are expected 'not to have known this' that is why there
are such a things as students of poetry and Spiritual Science. Maybe
you do not know that in most Pyramids a fully supplied boat or
miniature model was placed in the death chambers, so that the soul of
the king could navigate along the astral star rivers. The crew were
part of the King's staff, who were also killed and mummifed with the
King in his tomb. This Star boat is something that I marvelled at
when tracing ancient mariners and The Rime. It is astonishing where
vision and wisdom lead.
It is also none of your inner business to have followed the idea that
Steiner located Lord Byron karmically or at least in karmic
perception through a Geometry teacher and a club foot. This led him
to the adventure of the hunt for Red October or the unfilmed version
of Lord Byron's previous incarnation, when he sought as a quest of
rulership, the ancient Palladium.. a little wooden statue hustled out
of Troy and Mars... to Rome where Mars and the Wolf would be born
from the deed of Aeneas, the escapee from the burning wreck of Troy..
But what you can take note of, with all that seems to be missing in
weird education and strange insights that the Michael School hands
over to souls who must learn to navigate... is the peculiar study of
Heidegger and how he commented on our own true Holderlin. Heidegger
was really the last of the Philosopher Somethings.. his balance, and
take note here, for I have an intimacy here.. Heidegger's balance of
seeking some Agni inspired fire, on the head of any pin he could get
a hold of, was curious.. because this Agni Fire force, which we term
now the Etherization of the Blood and the Mead of Poetry, sharpens
the Intellect and makes it aware of hidden meanings. Heidegger helped
awaken the dead Holderlin from the grave and I mean that literally.
"This is even more explicit in the book Martin Heidegger (1978),
where basing himself on Heidegger's so-called turn, George Steiner
asserts: "Only in the 1930s, under stress of public events and in the
conviction that the language of Sein und Zeit had proved inadequate
to its innovative, revolutionary purpose, that Heidegger turned fully
to Holderlin. The four readings of Holderlin that Heidegger gave in
the guise of lectures and essays between 1936 and 1944 make up one of
the most disconcerting, spellbinding documents in the history of
Western literature and linguistic sensibility. Spoken against a
backdrop of deepening barbarism and national self destruction, these
commentaries on a number of Holderlin's major hymns are nothing less
than an endeavour to pierce, via a singular kind of textual and
critical exegesis, to the last sanctuary of poetic invention,
national identity and human speech itself."
Now "public events" drive Heidegger to present his thoughts "in the
guise of lectures and essays", as though he were presenting
oppositional thoughts under the cover of his official duties. But his
commentaries on Holderlin could co-exist comfortably with National
Socialist conceptions of Holderlin the German nationalist icon.
They were also bound up with seeing poetry alone as able to escape
the history of metaphysics. Supposedly, between the poets of ancient
Greece and the present, only Holderlin and Heidegger himself had
escaped the grip of metaphysics.
"Holderlin does not belong to 'humanism' precisely because he thought
the destiny of man's essence in a more original way than 'humanism'
If you wonder whey I am so interested in the current American
Imperial Rome, recall above the weaving of Holderlin into the Nazi
world events that is depicted above. I'm sure when Aristotle found
himself in the wrong brains, his spirit felt highly uncomfortable. We
don't see or know even a tenth of the hidden history of the human
soul and spirit do we now? If you don't show interest, build
interest, find your interests awakening, you cannot discern on the
river of the Agni/Christ Etherization of the blood.

Anyways Danny, I took the time to listen to "The Last Stand of
Achilles" and looked up the lyrics pertaining to ATlas... It was also
part of my most interting studies as a Waldorf Teacher when I began
to teach anatomy, that Thetic, (mother of Achilles) really was the
queen of the waters that bridge the threshold.. The Elemental Queen
of the salty inner ocean of the womb where pregnancy and the soul
touch between worlds. Capturing the changing shapes of Thetis was the
job of someone who lived on the border of the elemental world of
Achilles was also part of understanding the vulnerable aspect of the
heel and tendon. But once inside the incredible myths, the windows
into Achilles, or the huge warrior Arnold and all kinds of curious
secrets rose to the surface of the thinking human being. Provided
they understand that fairy tale and fact was the only method to
decode reality. This determines if you can not only love logic, but
love magic as the Living Hope of our daily world.
