"It is true that in order to reach inner freedom, it was necessary
for men to pass through the stage of believing that a globe of gas
is moving through universal space but the fact is that physicists
would be very astonished if they could take a journey in space; they
would discover that the sun is not a globe of gas giving out light
that is nonsense but that it is a mere reflector which cannot
itself radiate light but at most throw it back. The truth is that in
the spiritual sense, light streams out from Saturn, Jupiter,
Mercury, Venus and the Moon.
Physically it appears as though the sun gives the planets light, but
in reality it is the planets that radiate light to the sun and the
sun is the reflector. As such it was recognized by the wise men of
ancient Persia with their instinctive wisdom, and in this sense the
sun was regarded as the earthly source of Light not indeed as the
source itself, but as the reflector of the Light. Then, among the
Egyptians and Chaldeans, the sun became the reflector of Life and
among the Greeks, the reflector of Love.
This was the conception that Julian the Apostate wanted to preserve
and he was done away with. In order to reach freedom it was indeed
necessary that men should hold for a time to the superstition of the
sun as a globe of gas in space, giving out light a superstition
enunciated as a categorical truth in every book of physics today.
But our task must be to penetrate to the reality."
Steve: My thesis on this subject was formulated years before reading
the above, which I take as a corroboration of my initiating
research. Thus, the moon is self-shining in its entirety, and the
so-called "phases" need a new explanation.
In reading what you offered above, Robert, I am thinking about
natural effects vs. artificial effects created in a lab environment
using such devices as a "turbid" in this case, or say,
an "inferometer" which captures and splits a beam of light into two
beams in order to measure the so-called 'interference fringes' which
then somehow get calculated as the speed of light, i.e., 186,000
mps. Common sense tells me that there is a difference between the
results of natural viewing and the views of the lab experiments.
For example, when sunlight and the moisture contained in clouds
affect the atmosphere, then we naturally see all seven rays of light
of the spectrum in the form of the rainbow. Thus, rain is important
in achieving this prismatic effect, just as lack of moisture
combined with extraordinary static friction of the atmosphere
In the case of an observable lunar eclipse our vision, of course, is
undisturbed by clouds, so the three aspects of the red band are
displayed over the duration of the eclipse. The refracted
(deflected) light would have to be enlightened by the self-shining
moon as its passes through the umbra for the simple reason that the
atmosphere on the darkened side of the earth is too weak to bear the
light of the sun itself to the naked eye. But, what the naked eye
is able to view standing in the shadow zone during a lunar eclipse,
is the moon taking on the color of the deflected light on its face
as it passes through, making deflected sunlight visible to the eye.
After passing through the shadow, the atmosphere returns to
darkness, and the moon's original light is restored.
The shroud of the moon, which has been given a very clever and
logical explanation as the phases of the moon, described in the
second url above, is actually the Eighth Sphere. If you remember
from the discourse on the ES from last summer, the Eighth Sphere is
centered in the moon, meaning just that. It follows closely the
moon's movement as its rotational aspect. The moon is massless,
owing to the fact that the mineral element was formed and then
passed over to the earth fifty thousand years ago, when the Moon
Oracle was effected. So, the idea that the moon rotates on its axis
at the same rate that it revolves around the earth, thus showing us
only its one side, is another clever explanation used for the sake
of logical reasoning.
The Eighth Sphere was formed when the mineral substance originally
passing over, and meant for the earth, was wrested from the Exusaia
Who were controlling this whole operation of the Moon Oracle, and
taken control of by Lucifer and Ahriman. This enabled them to gain
control of a small portion of mineral substance for their own use.
This also gave them the means to enter the human astral body and
etheric body, where the Exusaia (Spirits of Form) were to be the
sole spiritual beings affecting these bodies. Thus, human evolution
has been drastically affected by this occurrence.
The Eighth Sphere exists where the etheric body of the Old Moon
would normally have died and passed on. That is why it can be
described as a shroud. It can be likened to the etheric body that
stands just inside our physical body. By placing mineral substance
in a body that is completely devoid of physical substance, the
phenomena of the Eighth Sphere was born. And it has been steadily
growing ever since, constantly seeking to enhance its mineral base.
- Steve you are such a Leo!
NCAR = Atmospheric Research Centre thought it meant Centre Astronomy
Research er where are we going again?!
I think it would be good to look at the earth's compass points again.
We know the pole's shifted after the Atlantis catastrophe, everything
went topsy turvy and Venus became Mercury and Mercury become Venus
does this mean the compass points also became topsy turvy? Also seeing
that the world is Tetrahedron shaped.
