Now, I'm sure many people would know the story of Jacob in Genesis 28. I have already addressed this in "Shiva in the Bible" Chapter, as the apparent Pillar and the ritual done unto this leads back to the religion of Hinduism. If people don't know, Jordan Maxwell knew about this symbolism and why the three major religions are based from the "Mother" of all religions. First let's recap on Genesis 28:
"1And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. 2Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother. 3And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; 4And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham."
"5And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother. 6When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan; 7And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram; 8And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father; 9Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife."
"10And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. 11And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. 12And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. 13And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;"
"14And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of."
"16And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not. 17And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. 18And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it."
"19And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first. 20And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, 21So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: 22And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee."
Thus, the "House of God" is the Lingam, which is the Phallus of the fertility God Shiva.
VOLUME I - BOOK II - CHAPTER I Page 62 "The fact that Abraham worshipped several Gods, who were, in reality, the same as those of the Persians, namely, the creator, preserver, and the destroyer, has been long asserted, and the assertion has been very unpalatable both to the Jews and many Christians; and to obviate or disguise what they could not account for, they have had recourse, in numerous instances, to the mistranslation of the original, ..." Based from "The Anacalypsis", by Sir Godfrey Higgins.
The fertility symbol is described as being "circumcised", and is poured with oil and other drink offerings as the Hindus practice is called "Abhishekam", or sometimes "rudrabhishekam".
But here let's look at the term "Rock and Roll" and see it's etymological connections to the Pillar. Rock: "stone, mass of mineral matter," c. 1300, from Old English rocc (as in stanrocc "stone rock or obelisk") and directly from Old North French roque, which is cognate with Medieval Latin rocca (8c.), from Vulgar Latin *rocca, of uncertain origin, according to Klein sometimes said to be from Celtic (compare Breton roch). So, this pertains to the "Obelisk" for the phallus in Old English. "to sway," late Old English roccian "move a child gently to and fro," related to Old Norse rykkja "to pull, tear, move," Swedish rycka "to pull, pluck," Middle Dutch rucken, Old High German rucchan, German rücken "to move jerkily." Meaning "cause to sway back and forth" is from late 13c. Intransitive sense from late 14c. For popular music senses, see rock (v.2). Related: Rocked; rocking."
"To rock the boat in the figurative sense "stir up trouble" is from 1914. Rock-a-bye first recorded 1805 in nursery rhyme. "action of rocking; a movement to and fro," 1823, from rock (v.1). As short for rock and roll, by 1957; but sense of "musical rhythm characterized by a strong beat" is from 1946, in blues slang. Rock star attested by 1966."
Then there is the term "Roll": roll (n.) early 13c., "rolled-up piece of parchment or paper" (especially one inscribed with an official record), from Old French rolle "document, parchment scroll, decree" (12c.), from Medieval Latin rotulus "a roll of paper" (source also of Spanish rollo, Italian rullo), from Latin rotula "small wheel," diminutive of rota "wheel" (see rotary)."
"Meaning "a register, list, catalogue" is from late 14c., common from c. 1800. Meaning "dough which is rolled before baking" is first recorded mid-15c. Sense of "act of rolling" is from 1743. Meaning "quantity of material rolled up" is from late 14c.; meaning "quantity of paper money" is from 1846; sense of "quantity of (rolled) film" is from 1890. Meaning "act of sexual intercourse" is attested from 1942 (compare roll in the hay), from roll (v.)."
"Dutch rol, German Rolle, Danish rulle, etc. are from French. Rock and roll (n.) also rock 'n' roll, 1954 in reference to a specific style of popular music, from rock (v.2) + roll (v.). The verbal phrase had been an African-American vernacular euphemism for "sexual intercourse," used in popular dance music lyrics and song titles at least since the 1930s. Then there is Bed-roll: (n.) "bedding rolled up in a bundle," 1905, from bed (n.) + roll (n.). There is a citation of an identical word from 1650s in the sense "a list of women for sleeping with."
So, even the word "roll" has a connotation to sex. Then maybe you can see why the music of "Rock and Roll" has a lot to do with this God, as he is the one known for the phallus symbol, and how it's basic "sex magic". Here is the "Herm" stone and the Phallus of Shiva.
Based from the Wiki states this on the "Herm": "A herma (Ancient Greek: ἑρμῆς, pl. ἑρμαῖ hermai), commonly herm in English, is a sculpture with a head and perhaps a torso above a plain, usually squared lower section, on which male genitals may also be carved at the appropriate height. Hermae were so called either because the head of Hermes was most common or from their etymological connection with the Greek word ἕρματα (blocks of stone), which originally had no reference to Hermes at all. The form originated in ancient Greece, and was adopted by the Romans (called mercuriae), and revived at the Renaissance in the form of term figures and atlantes."
Origin: "In the earliest times Greek divinities were worshipped in the form of a heap of stones or a shapeless column of stone or wood. In many parts of Greece there were piles of stones by the sides of roads, especially at their crossings, and on the boundaries of lands. The religious respect paid to such heaps of stones, especially at the meeting of roads, is shown by the custom of each passer-by throwing a stone on to the heap or anointing it with oil. Later there was the addition of a head and phallus to the column, which became quadrangular (the number four was sacred to Hermes)."
Uses: "In ancient Greece the statues were thought to ward off harm or evil, an apotropaic function, and were placed at crossings, country borders and boundaries as protection, in front of temples, near to tombs, outside houses, in the gymnasia, palaestrae, libraries, porticoes, and public places, at the corners of streets, on high roads as sign-posts, with distances inscribed upon them."
"Before his role as protector of merchants and travelers, Hermes was a phallic god, associated with fertility, luck, roads and borders. His name perhaps comes from the word herma, referring to a square or rectangular pillar of stone, terracotta, or bronze; a bust of Hermes' head, usually with a beard, sat on the top of the pillar, and male genitals adorned the base. The surmounting heads were not, however, confined to those of Hermes; those of other gods and heroes, and even of distinguished mortals, were of frequent occurrence."
"In this case a compound was formed: Hermathena (a herm of Athena), Hermares (of Ares), Hermherakles (of Herakles), Hermaphroditus (of Aphrodite—not to be confused with the son of Hermes and Aphrodite with the same name, Hermaphroditus, who had the genitals of both sexes), Hermanubis, Hermalcibiades, and so on. In Athens, where the hermai were most numerous and most venerated, they were placed outside houses as apotropes for good luck."
"They would be rubbed or anointed with olive oil and adorned with garlands or wreaths. This superstition persists, for example the Porcellino bronze boar of Florence (and numerous others like it around the world), where the nose is shiny from being continually touched for good luck or fertility."
"In Roman and Renaissance versions (termini), the body was often shown from the waist up. The form was also used for portrait busts of famous public figures, especially writers like Socrates and Plato. Sappho appears on Ancient Greek herms, and anonymous female figures were often used from the Renaissance on, when herms were often attached to walls as decoration."
So, they state that the Phallic stone would be "rubbed" with oil or other drink offerings for a sign of good luck and fertility.
Based from Masau'u from Hamilton's "Pueblo Gods and Myths".
Then in pg 19 details the fertility quality belonging to both Masau'u and Muingwa, though the Author states the former seems to have more relation to the fertility aspect. Then states in pg 20: "While Germinator is the God of vegetation, Masauu is a general fertility spirit.....The blood upon his head is literally that of rabbits, or perhaps formerly a deer which is to say that he is in a part a god of game animals."
Pg 21: "...Nevertheless, he is male God with markedly phallic qualities- the slightly enlarged size, the head shaped like a squash, and the fact that before the emergence of the Hopis "Heard him walking around up there". Then details returning to the fire symbol, and the association with the "fire drill", and hence fire with the male element. He states that Robert Graves mentions why the God Hermes to became a fire God.
"The invention of fire making was acribed to Hermes, because the twirling of the male drill in the female stock suggested phallic magic". Masauu also brought the fire to the people in the same fashion as the Greek God Hermes (pg 21).
Now, this is where things get more interesting. Here states this in pg 25 and 26 details the Hopis placing a heap of stone in the fashion of a "pillar". Here he states that they would ask Masauu to protect them along the way. In pg 26 states this excerpt: "Since the Greek god Hermes, whose name means "he of the stone heap", developed from the similar stone cairn which served as both a shrine and as a boundary marker, we are justified in looking for the alternate symbol, which is an upright stone post often called a "herma" in English."
Let's see what the "Cairn" is on Wiki: "A cairn is a man-made pile (or stack) of stones. The word cairn comes from the Scottish Gaelic: càrn [ˈkʰaːrˠn̪ˠ]. Cairns have been and are used for a broad variety of purposes, from prehistoric times to the present. In modern times, cairns are often erected as landmarks, a use they have had since ancient times. However, since prehistory, they have also been built and used as burial monuments; for defense and hunting; for ceremonial purposes, sometimes relating to astronomy; to locate buried items, such as caches of food or objects; and to mark trails, among other purposes."
"Cairns are used as trail markers in many parts of the world, in uplands, on moorland, on mountaintops, near waterways and on sea cliffs, as well as in barren deserts and tundras. They vary in size from small stone markers to entire artificial hills, and in complexity from loose conical rock piles to delicately balanced sculptures and elaborate feats of megalithic engineering."
"Cairns may be painted or otherwise decorated, whether for increased visibility or for religious reasons. An ancient example is the inuksuk (plural inuksuit), used by the Inuit, Inupiat, Kalaallit, Yupik, and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America. Inuksuit are found from Alaska to Greenland. This region, above the Arctic Circle, is dominated by the tundra biome and has areas with few natural landmarks."
He then states that these "Cairn" or "boundary stones" are also done by the Zuni people. And they the stone pillar would be two feet high. Based from Stephen's "Hopi Journal" in 1888 details two brothers, one at Shumo Pavi and Oraibi lands using certain field markings in the figure of Massau'u. The latter placed a monument here and agreed that if Shumopavi increased sufficiently to need more farming land, then the monument can be moved towards Oraibi. He states that the stone is depicted two feet tall. There is a similar stone marked with the head of Masau'u, commemorated the deity's original claim to the enire domain, boundaries and shrines erected to the South and North east corner.
Now, let's see what Genesis details on the "heap of stone". Genesis 31:52 “This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will not pass over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over this heap and this pillar unto me, for harm.”
Then in pg 27 states this: "The Traits of both Hermes and Masauu share looking backward over the material so far covered, and forward to two qualities yet to be discussed. The process which brings the bits together runs something like this: both are gods of the dead and the underworld; and are gods of fertility, and fertility, whether vegetable or human, is represented by Phallic images. These images may take the form of stone cairns or pillars which have a double purpose; they have a magical effect in fructifying the field by which they stand, and they may serve as a boundary marker......"
"In relation to the former idea is the concept of fire as a generating life principle, while the boundary marker is also subject to two ideas. After you have passed the boundary, or that your village, you are a traveler or a subject to the dangers that entails among which is the great possibility of death, a thought which brings the complex full circle and ends in the underworld where it began. The Phallic boundary stone may become a tombstone."
Again, let's now see what the Bible states. Genesis 35:20 “And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.” So, it's revealed the connection of the stone heap and the pillar going back to Jacob, as he made the pillar towards this God.
Now, based on the last statement detailing the God Masau'u carrying what they called a "fire drill", is the same object that the Navajos had stated on the Black God of fire in their legends. Here is an excerpt from the Wiki. Black God (Navajo mythology):
"According to one version of the Navajo creation story, Black God is first encountered by First Man and First Woman on the Yellow (third) world. Black God is, first and foremost, a fire god. He is the inventor of the fire drill and was the first being to discover the means by which to generate fire."
"He is also attributed to the practice of witchcraft. Black God is not portrayed in the admirable, heroic fashion of other Navajo Gods. Instead, he is imagined as old, slow and apparently helpless. Other times he is imagined as a “a moody, humorless trickster” who “passes himself off as poor so that people will be generous to him.”
Appearance: "Black God has a crescent moon on his forehead, a fullmoon for a mouth, the Pleiades on his temple and he wears a buckskin mask covered in sacred charcoal with white paint."
Ritual Significance: "Despite his importance in the act of creation, Black God (or Haashch’eezhini) appears very seldom in Navajo ritual. The only sacrament involving Him is the Nightway (or Yeibichai), a nine-day midwinter healing ceremony. On the ninth and final day of the ritual, a man arrives in the guise of the Black God. It is not uncommon for Black God to be portrayed by an old man dressed in traditional garb including: fox skin, black body paint, and the Black God mask. The impersonator carries with him a fire-drill (a device that uses friction to incite ignition) and shredded bark (tinder) with which he will demonstrate his pyromancy."
The Black God of the Navajos is merely Shiva and Masau'u as they both are known for their fertility symbolism.
Let's look up some excerpts based on the Phallus worship around the world. Here the Wiki states this:
Egypt: "The phallus played a role in the cult of Osiris in ancient Egyptian religion. When Osiris' body was cut in 14 pieces, Set scattered them all over Egypt and his wife Isis retrieved all of them except one, his penis, which was swallowed by a fish; Isis made him a wooden replacement. The phallus was a symbol of fertility, and the god Min was often depicted as ithyphallic, that is, with an erect penis."
Note: This is the story of Llao being cut up by Skell in the Klamath story.
"In traditional Greek mythology, Hermes, god of boundaries and exchange (popularly the messenger god) is considered to be a phallic deity by association with representations of him on herms (pillars) featuring a phallus. There is no scholarly consensus on this depiction and it would be speculation to consider Hermes a type of fertility god. Pan, son of Hermes, was often depicted as having an exaggerated erect phallus. Priapus is a Greek god of fertility whose symbol was an exaggerated phallus. The son of Aphrodite and Dionysus, according to Homer and most accounts, he is the protector of livestock, fruit plants, gardens, and male genitalia. His name is the origin of the medical term priapism. The city of Tyrnavos in Greece holds an annual Phallus festival, a traditional event celebrating the phallus on the first days of Lent. The phallus was ubiquitous in ancient Roman culture, particularly in the form of the fascinum, a phallic charm."
"The ruins of Pompeii produced bronze wind chimes (tintinnabula) that featured the phallus, often in multiples, to ward off the evil eye and other malevolent influences. Statues of Priapus similarly guarded gardens. Roman boys wore the bulla, an amulet that contained a phallic charm, until they formally came of age. According to Augustine of Hippo, the cult of Father Liber, who presided over the citizen's entry into political and sexual manhood, involved a phallus. The phallic deity Mutunus Tutunus promoted marital sex. A sacred phallus was among the objects considered vital to the security of the Roman state which were in the keeping of the Vestal Virgins. Sexuality in ancient Rome has sometimes been characterized as "phallocentric".
Another example is the "Maypole" festival, and how this connects to the "Wicker man".
Based from "The Anacalypsis" by Godfrey Higgins pg 373 details this interesting excerpt on the "Phallus":
"...It is no small confirmation of the superior antiquity of Buddha, that over ail India, whether among Bauddhas, Saivas, or Vaishnavahs, the day of Woden, or Wednesday, is called Budhvar.* In Sanscrit it is Bou-ta vir, and in the Balic, Van Pout; in the northern nationst Woden's day ; the latter having no B, write W (see Asiat. Res. vol I. pp. x6i, 162), where the reader may also find additional proofs that Mercury or Hermes, Sommonacodom and Buddha, are all the same — with Maia for their Mother. As I have formerly said, the fact of Buddha giving name to one of the days of the week, Wednesday, fixes him to the very earliest period of which we have any record or probable tradition. He is acknow- ledged to be the Sun or the Surya, with seven heads, of Siam and Japan and Ceylon ; and to be the son of Maia. Thoth and Teutates and Hermes are allowed to be identical, and Hermes is allowed to be Mercury ; and Mercury is the God to whom Wednesday is dedi- cated, and the mother of Mercury is Maia."
"Sir William Jones clearly proved that the first Buddha was Woden, Mercury, and Fo, and I think, however he may have alarmed himself and his prejudices when he came to see the consequences of his proofs, he never was able to overthrow them.* Mr. Faber says, " The Egyptian cosmogony, like the Phoenician, is professedly of the Buddhic school : for the fullest " account which we have of it is contained in a book ascribed to " Hermes or Thoth : but Hermes or Thoth is the same person as " Taut, who is said to have drawn up the Phoenician system ; and " Taut again is the same as the Oriental Tat or Buddha.""
"The Tau, T, is the emblem of Mercury, of Hermes. It is the crux ansata, and the crux^Hermis. It was the last letter of the ancient alphabets, the end or boundary, wlience it came to be used as a terminus to districts ; but the crux Tau was also the emblem of the generative power, of eternal transmigrating life, and thus was used in- discriminately with the Phallus. It was, in fact, the phallus."
"The Tau is the Thoth, the Teut, the Teutates of the Druids ;2 and Teu- tates was Mercury, in the Sanscrit called Cod or Somona-cod-om ; and in German God. In old German Mercury was called Got..."
Pg18 of "The Anacalypsis" 7. "Of all the different attributes of the Creator, or faculties con- ferred by him on his creature, there is no one so striking or so interesting to a reflecting person as that of the generative power. This is the most incomprehensible and mysterious of the powers of nature. When all the adjuncts or accidents of every kind so interest- ing to the passions and feelings of man are considered, it is not wonderful that this subject should be found in some way or other to have a place among the first of the human superstition. Thus every- where we find it accompanying the triune God, called Trimurti or Trinity, just described, under the very significant form of the single obelisk or stone pillar, denominated the Lingham or Phallus,^ and the equally significant Yoni or Cteis, the female organ of generation ; sometimes single, often in conjunction. The origin of the worship of this object is discussed at large in my Cdtic Druids^ and will be found in the index by reference to the words Phallus, Linga, Lithoi."
Pg 127-128 "....We have seen that ofipaXo9 meant a navel. It is the name given to Delphi : and Delphi, as Mr. Faber has observed, has the meaning of the female organ of generation, called in India Yoniy the Os Minxse. Jones says, OM^H Oracle, AEA^YS — Matrix, womb. In one of the plates in Moore's Hindoo Pantheon, Brahma is seen rising from the navel of Brahme-Maia with the umbilical cord uncut : this justifies the last rendering of Jones, Matrix, Closely allied to 0^1^17 seems to be the word ofi^aXi;, or o/A^aXo9. I find ^0X17 or foXos to mean Phallus or Linga, the membrum virile^ constantly used for the generative power. Then 0/190X17 will mean the generative power O/a, or the generative power of Om."
"I find the oracle or Divina vox at Delphi called Omphalos, and the word Delphi or AcX^vs means the female genera- tive power ; and in front of the temple at Delphi, in fact constituting a part of the religious edifice, was a large Phallus or Linga, anointed every day with oil This, all taken together, shews very dearly that Omphale means the oracle of the generative (androgynous) power af Om...."
Interesting material based on the Phallic worship and how this connects to the religions of today. Based from Galactic Warfare 19-22, I had already detailed who "Delphi" is, and sure enough there is more to the Book's statement. Here is a Shiva Lingam and as you can see the Vatican Square....
Now, let's connect this to the Phallic God Pan, the Egyptian God Min, and the Yoruban Orisha "Papa Legba". Here is what the Wiki states of Min:
"Min (Egyptian mnw) is an ancient Egyptian god whose cult originated in the predynastic period (4th millennium BCE). He was represented in many different forms, but was most often represented in male human form, shown with an erect penis which he holds in his left hand and an upheld right arm holding a flail."
"....His importance grew in the Middle Kingdom when he became even more closely linked with Horus as the deity Min-Horus. By the New Kingdom he was also fused with Amun in the form of Min-Amun, who was also the serpent Irta, a kamutef (the "bull of his mother" - aka father of his own mother as well as her son). Min as an independent deity was also a kamutef of Isis. One of Isis's many places of cult throughout the valley was at Min's temple in Koptos as his divine wife. Min's shrine was crowned with a pair of bull horns."
"As the central deity of fertility and possibly orgiastic rites, Min became identified by the Greeks with the god Pan. One feature of Min worship was the wild prickly lettuce Lactuca virosa and Lactuca serriola of which is the domestic version Lactuca sativa (lettuce) which has aphrodisiac and opiate qualities and produce latex when cut, possibly identified with semen. He also had connections with Nubia."
"However, his main centers of worship remained at Coptos and Akhmim (Khemmis)..... Male deities as vehicles for fertility and potency rose to prevalence at the emergence of widespread agriculture. Male Egyptians would work in agriculture, making bountiful harvests a male-centered occasion."
"Thus, male gods of virility such as Osiris and Min were more developed during this time. Fertility was not associated with solely women, but with men as well, even increasing the role of the male in childbirth. As a god of male sexual potency, he was honoured during the coronation rites of the New Kingdom, when the Pharaoh was expected to sow his seed—generally thought to have been plant seeds, although there have been controversial suggestions that the Pharaoh was expected to demonstrate that he could ejaculate—and thus ensure the annual flooding of the Nile."
"At the beginning of the harvest season, his image was taken out of the temple and brought to the fields in the festival of the departure of Min, the Min Festival, when they blessed the harvest, and played games naked in his honour, the most important of these being the climbing of a huge (tent) pole. This four day festival is evident from the great festivals list at the temple of Ramses III at Medinet Habu. In Hymn to Min it is said: Min, Lord of the Processions, God of the High Plumes, Son of Osiris and Isis, Venerated in Ipu... Min's wives were Iabet and Repyt (Repit)".
Now, based on the God of the Pillar, it's important to learn about the God called "Dionysus", because once you understand this deity then you will begin to understand the religions and their symbolism towards him. Here you can see the leopard skin because he is really the Hindu god Shiva. Among his many epithets, he is called this as the Wiki states:
"Aegobolus ("Goat-shooter"), Bassareus, a Thracian name for Dionysus, which derives from bassaris or "fox-skin", which item was worn by his cultists in their mysteries.
(Within the Pythagorean mathematic system details the alphabetical system and the numbers 1-9 to link towards each other. When connecting the word "FOX" actually details the number "666". So, like the channel news FOX is not a coincidence pertaining to Dionysus. It also shows that "666" also pertains to XXX, connecting to Pornography within the fertility and revelry rituals, and the movie triple X. Look up the news CNN and you will see the numbers "355", adding to the number "13" the number of the woman. ABC is 123 to "6", then NEWS is 5551 adding 16 which adds 1=6 to 7. 6=7 is "13". There is a movie called "Precint 13", and if you can see the symbolism on Ellen King's "Exs and Ohs", she sings the eXs as 6, the Ohs 3 times as "666"...)
Briseus ("he who prevails"), Bromios ("Roaring" as of the wind, primarily relating to the central death/resurrection element of the myth, but also the god's transformations into lion and bull, and the boisterousness of those who drink alcohol. Also cognate with the "roar of thunder", which refers to Dionysus' father Zeus, as the thunderer.
Choiropsalas ("pig-plucker": "pig," also used as a slang term for the female genitalia). A reference to Dionysus's role as a fertility deity.
Chthonios ("the subterranean") (This reveals him to be the "god of this World" as I will reveal in the "King of the World chapter")
Dendrites ("he of the trees"), as a fertility god Dithyrambos, used at his festivals, referring to his premature birth.
Eleutherios ("the liberator"), an epithet shared with Eros.
Endendros ("he in the tree"). Enorches ("with balls," with reference to his fertility, or "in the testicles" in reference to Zeus' sewing the baby Dionysus "into his thigh", understood to mean his testicles). used in Samos and Lesbos. Eridromos ("good-running"), in Nonnus' Dionysiaca.
Liknites ("he of the winnowing fan"), as a fertility god connected with mystery religions. A winnowing fan was used to separate the chaff from the grain (a very interesting symbolism towards Jesus). Lyaeus, or Lyaios (Λυαῖος, "deliverer", literally "loosener"), one who releases from care and anxiety.
Melanaigis ("of the black goatskin") at the Apaturia festival. (You should know the "black goat" reference as it pertains to the Wiccan and Satan symbolism).
Morychus (Μόρυχος, "smeared") in Sicily, because his icon was smeared with wine lees at the vintage. Oeneus, as god of the wine press. Omadios, Eusebius writes in Preparation for the Gospel that, Euelpis of Carystus states that, in Chios and Tenedos they did human sacrifice to Dionysus Omadios (this is a reference to the "green man" or specifically "The Wicker man", as they do human sacrifice towards this deity. Pseudanor (literally "false man", referring to his feminine qualities), in Macedonia (He would be called "androgynous" due to his effeminate looks).
In the Greek pantheon, "Dionysus" (along with Zeus) absorbs the role of "Sabazios", a Thracian/Phrygian deity. In the Roman pantheon, Sabazius became an alternative name for Bacchus (This will be revealed on how the "hand of Sabazios" is among the Christians) He would be known as Osiris as he was cut up by the fire deity Set, and later becomes the god of the underworld. He is Zagreus (and sometimes Hades) as he is god of the underworld. He is Bacchus/Iacchus of the Romans, "Flufluns" of the Etruscans and even "Liber", in which we get "Liberty".
He is said to have the symbolism of Thyrsus (a weapon dripping with honey, ivy plants and a pine cone on top), grapevine, bull, panther, ivy, goat, masks, chalice (the holy Chalice that pertains to the drink of immortality, like the Amrit of the Devas and the Ambrosia of the Olympians) He is followed by his female worshipers called "Maenads", in whom are called "ravers". Here in Wiki states this:
"Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzy through a combination of dancing and intoxication. During these rites, the maenads would dress in fawn skins and carry a thyrsus, a long stick wrapped in ivy or vine leaves and tipped with a pine cone. They would weave ivy-wreaths around their heads or wear a bull helmet in honor of their god, and often handle or wear snakes."
"These women were mythologized as the "mad women" who were nurses of Dionysus in Nysa. Lycurgus "chased the Nurses of the frenzied Dionysus through the holy hills of Nysa, and the sacred implements dropped to the ground from the hands of one and all, as the murderous Lycurgus struck them down with his ox-goad".
"They went into the mountains at night and practiced strange rites. According to Plutarch's Life of Alexander, maenads were called Mimallones and Klodones in Macedon, epithets derived from the feminine art of spinning wool. Nevertheless, these warlike parthenoi ("virgins") from the hills, associated with a Dionysios pseudanor "fake male Dionysus", routed an invading enemy. In southern Greece they were described as Bacchae, Bassarides, Thyiades, Potniades, better source needed and other epithets. The term maenad has come to be associated with a wide variety of women, supernatural, mythological, and historical, associated with the god Dionysus and his worship."
"Cultist rites associated with worship of the Greek god of wine, Dionysus (or Bacchus in Roman mythology), were allegedly characterized by maniacal dancing to the sound of loud music and crashing cymbals, in which the revelers, called Bacchantes, whirled, screamed, became drunk and incited one another to greater and greater ecstasy. The goal was to achieve a state of enthusiasm in which the celebrants’ souls were temporarily freed from their earthly bodies and were able to commune with Bacchus/Dionysus and gain a glimpse of and a preparation for what they would someday experience in eternity."
"The rite climaxed in a performance of frenzied feats of strength and madness, such as uprooting trees, tearing a bull (the symbol of Dionysus) apart with their bare hands, an act called sparagmos, and eating its flesh raw, an act called omophagia. This latter rite was a sacrament akin to communion in which the participants assumed the strength and character of the god by symbolically eating the raw flesh and drinking the blood of his symbolic incarnation. Having symbolically eaten his body and drunk his blood, the celebrants became possessed by Dionysus."
(This is where the Eucharist comes from as the Christians would take similar instance of the flesh/body of Christ as the bread and the wine as the blood of Christ. This will connect to the "Nommo" story... )
"Dionysus came to his birthplace, Thebes, where neither Pentheus, his cousin who was now king, nor Pentheus’ mother Agave, Dionysus’ aunt (Semele's sister) acknowledged his divinity. Dionysus punished Agave by driving her insane, and in that condition, she killed her son and tore him to pieces. From Thebes, Dionysus went to Argos where all the women except the daughters of King Proetus joined in his worship. Dionysus punished them by driving them mad, and they killed the infants who were nursing at their breasts. He did the same to the daughters of Minyas, King of Orchomenos in Boetia, and then turned them into bats. According to Opian, Dionysus delighted, as a child, in tearing kids into pieces and bringing them back to life again. He is characterized as "the raging one" and "the mad one" and the nature of the maenads, from which they get their name, is, therefore, his nature."
"The foundation myth is believed to have been reenacted every other year during the Agrionia. Here the women of Thebes were organized into three dance groups and rushed off to Mount Cithaeron with ritual cries of "to the mountain!" As "mad women," they pursued and killed, perhaps by dismemberment (sparagmos), the 'king', possibly represented by a goat. The maenads may have eaten the meat of the goat raw (omophagia) or sacrificed it to Dionysus. Eventually the women would be freed from the madness and return to Thebes and their usual lives, but for the time of the festival they would have had an intense ecstatic experience."
"The Agrionia was celebrated in several Greek cities, but especially in Boeotia. Each Boeotian city had its own distinct foundation myth for it, but the pattern was much the same: the arrival of Dionysus, resistance to him, flight of the women to a mountain, the killing of Dionysus’ persecutor, and eventual reconciliation with the god."
"German philologist Walter Friedrich Otto writes: The Bacchae of Euripides gives us the most vital picture of the wonderful circumstance in which, as Plato says in the Ion, the god-intoxicated celebrants draw milk and honey from the streams. They strike rocks with the thyrsus, and water gushes forth. They lower the thyrsus to the earth, and a spring of wine bubbles up. If they want milk, they scratch up the ground with their fingers and draw up the milky fluid. Honey trickles down from the thyrsus made of the wood of the ivy, they gird themselves with snakes and give suck to fawns and wolf cubs as if they were infants at the breast. Fire does not burn them. No weapon of iron can wound them, and the snakes harmlessly lick up the sweat from their heated cheeks. Fierce bulls fall to the ground, victims to numberless, tearing female hands, and sturdy trees are torn up by the roots with their combined efforts."
Now, as stated above, do you see the resemblance towards Moses "striking the rock" and out comes forth water? Then the term "milk and honey" comes into play in the same manner as God states "land of milk and honey". Here in Wiki states this: "The earliest cult images of Dionysus show a mature male, bearded and robed. He holds a fennel staff, tipped with a pine-cone and known as a thyrsus. Later images show him as a beardless, sensuous, naked or half-naked androgynous youth: the literature describes him as womanly or "man-womanish"
"In its fully developed form, his central cult imagery shows his triumphant, disorderly arrival or return, as if from some place beyond the borders of the known and civilized. His procession (thiasus) is made up of wild female followers (maenads) and bearded satyrs with erect penises; some are armed with the thyrsus, some dance or play music. The god himself is drawn in a chariot, usually by exotic beasts such as lions or tigers, and is sometimes attended by a bearded, drunken Silenus".
"This procession is presumed to be the cult model for the followers of his Dionysian Mysteries. Dionysus is represented by city religions as the protector of those who do not belong to conventional society and he thus symbolizes the chaotic, dangerous and unexpected, everything which escapes human reason and which can only be attributed to the unforeseeable action of the gods. Dionysus was a god of resurrection and he was strongly linked to the bull."
"In a cult hymn from Olympia, at a festival for Hera, Dionysus is invited to come as a bull; "with bull-foot raging". Walter Burkert relates, "Quite frequently [Dionysus] is portrayed with bull horns, and in Kyzikos he has a tauromorphic image", and refers also to an archaic myth in which Dionysus is slaughtered as a bull calf and impiously eaten by the Titans."
"The snake and phallus were symbols of Dionysus in ancient Greece, and of Bacchus in Greece and Rome. He typically wears a panther or leopard skin and carries a Thyrsus – a long stick or wand topped with a pine cone. His iconography sometimes include maenads, who wear wreaths of ivy and serpents around their hair or neck. The cult of Dionysus was closely associated with trees, specifically the fig tree, and some of his bynames exhibit this, such as Endendros "he in the tree" or Dendritēs, "he of the tree". Peters suggests the original meaning as "he who runs among the trees", or that of a "runner in the woods" (Attributes towards Shiva).
"Janda (2010) accepts the etymology but proposes the more cosmological interpretation of "he who impels the (world-)tree". This interpretation explains how Nysa could have been re-interpreted from a meaning of "tree" to the name of a mountain: the axis mundi of Indo-European mythology is represented both as a world-tree and as a world-mountain."
"Dionysus is also closely associated with the transition between summer and autumn. In the Mediterranean summer, marked by the rising of the dog star Sirius, the weather becomes extremely hot, but it is also a time when the promise of coming harvests grow. Late summer, when Orion is at the center of the sky, was the time of the grape harvest in ancient Greece. Plato describes the gifts of this season as the fruit that is harvested as well as Dionysian joy. Pindar describes the "pure light of high summer" as closely associated with Dionysus and possibly even an embodiment of the god himself. An image of Dionysus' birth from Zeus' thigh call him "the light of Zeus" (Dios-phos) and associate him with the light of Sirius."
In the Wiki about Sirius states this: "The proper name "Sirius" comes from the Latin Sīrius, from the Ancient Greek Σείριος (Seirios, "glowing" or "scorcher"). The Greek word itself may have been imported from elsewhere before the Archaic period, one authority suggesting a link with the Egyptian god Osiris."
Sirius plays an important part for this God, so it's good to know what the Sirius star symbology is based on....
Now, it's not new to find the blackened images of the "Queen of Heaven" and the "Black Child" to be worshiped in the religions of Christianity, though it's interesting that people don't want to know such things. When coming across the original depictions compared to the whitened versions of the God on the Cross, the History that tends to be covered up is shown to connect to a more Mysterious origin. It's shown that the original trinity of where the father, the son and the holy ghost is worshiped, is based on Osiris, Isis and Horus (Sophia would be under the name of Isis). If the readers don’t believe me, then let us consider the British historian Sir Godfrey Higgins and his book called the “Anacalypsis.” In his book details the original Greco-Roman gods as being black complexioned, ranging from Jupiter, Zeus, Bacchus, Dionysus, Venus, Aphrodite, Juno, Cybele, Circe, Hercules amongst others. But first, let's see what Godfrey Higgins states in his book:
VOLUME I - BOOK IV - CHAPTER I Page 135: "For reasons which the reader will soon see, I am inclined to think that Osiris was not the copy of Cristna, but of the earlier God, Buddha. That by Osiris was meant to Sun, it is now allowed by every writer who has treated on the antiquities of Egypt. Mr. Maurice, as the reader sees, states him to have been black and that the Mnevis, or sacred bull, of Heliopolis, the symbol of Osiris, was also black. Osiris is allowed, also, to be the Seeva of India,* one of the three persons of the Indian God—Bramha, Vishnu or Cristna, and Seeva, of whom the bull of the zodiac was the symbol."
"It is curious to observe the number of trifling circumstances which constantly occur to prove the identity of the Hindoos and Egyptians, or rather the Ethiopians. The word Nile, in the Indian language, means black. … But the name of Nile was a modern one, (comparatively speaking,) a translation of the ancient name of this river, which last Siri." … Page 136: "The ancient name, as we have said, was Sir, or Siri, the same as O-sir, or Osiris, who was always black; after whom it was called, and by whom was meant the sun. Thus it was called the river of the sun, or the river sun, or the river of Osiris—as we say, the river of the Amazons, or the river Amazon. …"
"Page 137 I have some suspicion that O-siris is a Greek corruption; that the name ought, as already mentioned, to be what is called by Hellanicus, Ysiris or Isiris, and that it is derived from, or rather I should say is the same as, Iswara of India. Iswara and Isi are the same as Osiris and Isis—the male and female procreative powers of nature. ... Eusebius says the Egyptians called Osiris, Surius, and that, in Persia, was the old name of the sun."
Page 138: "Osiris and his Bull were black; all the Gods and Goddesses of Greece were black: at least this was the case with Jupiter, Bacchus, Hercules, Apollo, Ammon. The Goddesses Venus, Isis, Hecati, Diana, Juno, Metis, Ceres, Cybile, are black. The Multi-mammia is black in the Campidoglio at Rome, and in Montfaucon, Antiquity explained."
"On the colour of the Gods of the ancients, and of the identity of them all with the God Sol, and with the Cristna of India, nothing more need be said. The reader has already seen the striking marks of similarity in the history of Cristna and the stories related of Jesus in the Romish and heretical books. He probably will not think that their effect is destroyed, as Mr. Maurice flatters himself, by the word Cristna in the Indian language signifying black, and the God being of that colour, when he is informed, of what Mr. Maurice was probably ignorant, that in all the Romish countries of Europe, in France, Italy, Germany, &c., the God Christ, as well as his mother, are described in their old pictures and statues to be black. The infant God in the arms of his black mother, his eyes and drapery white, is himself perfectly black. ... There is scarcely an old church in Italy were some remains of the worship of the BLACK VIRGIN and BLACK CHILD are not to be met with. Very often the black figures have given way to white ones, and in these cases the black ones, as being held sacred, were put into retired places in the churches, but were not destroyed, but are yet to be found there. ... They are generally esteemed by the rabble with the most profound veneration."
She is shown with the crescent moon under her feet and the twelve stars above her along with the man child. The woman has many names like Mary, Isis, Rhea, Cybele, Circe, Athena, Inanna, Ishtar, Ashtoreth, Durga, Parvati and is known as the “Queen of Heaven” in the bible. But as I researched the earlier images I found to my surprise that she was originally called the “Black Madonna” who is known as "Erzulie Dante", who bears the man child Jesus (as some would put it):
Page 139: "If the author had wished to invent a circumstance to corroborate the assertion, that the Romish Christ of Europe is the Cristna of India, how could he have desired anything more striking than the fact of the black Virgin and Child being so common in the Romish countries of Europe ? A black virgin and child among the white Germans, Swiss, French, and Italians ! ! ! The Romish Cristna is black in India, black in Europe, and black he must remain—like the ancient gods of Greece, as we have just seen. But, after all, what was he but the Jupiter, the second person of their Trimurti or Trinity, the Logos of Parmenides and Plato, an incarnation or emanation of the solar power ? Page 143: "The statue of Cristna in the temple of Mathura is black, and the temple is built in the form of a cross,* and stands due East and West.
"It is evident the Hindoos must have known the use of the Gnomon at a very remote period. Their religion commands that the four sides of their temples should correspond with the four cardinal points of the Heavens, and they are all so constructed."
In Sir Godfrey Higgins book called "The Anacalypsis" VOLUME II - BOOK IV - CHAPTER I Page 285 states this "... The Dove has always been the emblem of the Holy Spirit, of the Anima Mundi. A black dove came from the Hyperboreans to Delos and Delphi, where the priestesses were in a particular manner endowed with the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Ghost or Spirit descended upon Jesus Christ, at his baptism, it was in the form of a dove, and always a female dove. I have shewn that Venus was identical with Ceres, Hecate, and she was black—in fact, the Mother of the Gods as such...."
In the Wiki states here: "According to David Kinsley, Kāli is first mentioned in Hindu tradition as a distinct goddess around 600 AD, and these texts "usually place her on the periphery of Hindu society or on the battlefield." She is often regarded as the Shakti of Shiva, and is closely associated with him in various Puranas. Her most well-known appearance on the battlefield is in the sixth century Devi Mahatmyam. The deity of the first chapter of Devi Mahatmyam is Mahakali, who appears from the body of sleeping Vishnu as goddess Yoga Nidra to wake him up in order to protect Brahma and the World from two demons, Madhu and Kaitabha."
"When Vishnu woke up he started a war against the two demons. After a long battle with Lord Vishnu when the two demons were undefeated Mahakali took the form of Mahamaya to enchant the two asuras. When Madhu and Kaitabha were enchanted by Mahakali, Vishnu killed them. In later chapters, the story of two demons who were destroyed by Kali can be found. Chanda and Munda attack the goddess Durga. Durga responds with such anger it causes her face to turn dark, resulting in Kali appearing out of her forehead. Kali's appearance is dark blue, gaunt with sunken eyes, and wearing a tiger skin sari and a garland of human heads. She immediately defeats the two demons."
"Later in the same battle, the demon Raktabija is undefeated because of his ability to reproduce himself from every drop of his blood that reaches the ground. Countless Raktabija clones appear on the battlefield. Kali eventually defeats him by sucking his blood before it can reach the ground, and eating the numerous clones. Kinsley writes that Kali represents "Durga's personified wrath, her embodied fury".
"Other origin stories involve Parvati and Shiva. Parvati is typically portrayed as a benign and friendly goddess. The Linga Purana describes Shiva asking Parvati to defeat the demon Daruka, who received a boon that would only allow a female to kill him. Parvati merges with Shiva's body, reappearing as Kali to defeat Daruka and his armies. Her bloodlust gets out of control, only calming when Shiva intervenes. The Vamana Purana has a different version of Kali's relationship with Parvati. When Shiva addresses Parvati as Kali, "the dark blue one," she is greatly offended. Parvati performs austerities to lose her dark complexion and becomes Gauri, the golden one. Her dark sheath becomes Kausiki, who while enraged, creates Kali." You'll see the evolution of the battle throughout the world....
There is "Califia" to which "California" is based on, to the Chinese deities "Dong Wang Gong" or "Cangdi" as “King duke of the east” and his wife "Baixi" or "Xiwangmu", who is said to be the dark chthonic goddess of destruction and creation, as well as terrifying, benign and is associated with tigers and weaving. Her husband is also known as Mugong “Duke of the woods” as they represent the gods of fertility. It shows he represents the yang side energy and Bixia the yin side energy which connects to Shiva and Kali. When it states that she is “dark” and chthonic means that she is Kali who is Shiva’s darker half. She is also shown with an afro, dreadlocks, or sometimes red hair. Even the band called "Kiss" has the Logo depicting the same symbolism with the tongue.
Godfrey Higgins states that the Goddess "Circe" is black goddess by origin. Based from Jordan Maxwell's works he connects this Goddess to the term "Church". It's also very interesting as the word "Christian" has a connection to the word "Cretin". Look up "Cretin" as the etymology states:
"1779, from French crétin (18c.), from Alpine dialect crestin, "a dwarfed and deformed idiot" of a type formerly found in families in the Alpine lands, a condition caused by a congenital deficiency of thyroid hormones. The word is of uncertain origin. By many it has been identified with Vulgar Latin *christianus "a Christian," a generic term for "anyone," but often with a sense of "poor fellow." Related: Cretinism (1796). Then when you look up the word "Church", it states this: "Old English cirice, circe "place of assemblage set aside for Christian worship; the body of Christian believers, Christians collectively; ecclesiastical authority or power," from Proto-Germanic *kirika (source also of Old Saxon kirika, Old Norse kirkja, Old Frisian zerke, Middle Dutch kerke, Dutch kerk, Old High German kirihha, German Kirche)." "This is probably [see extensive note in OED] borrowed via an unrecorded Gothic word from Greek kyriake (oikia), kyriakon doma "the Lord's (house)," from kyrios "ruler, lord," from PIE root *keue- "to swell" ("swollen," hence "strong, powerful"). Greek kyriakon (adj.) "of the Lord" was used of houses of Christian worship since c. 300, especially in the East, though it was less common in this sense than ekklesia or basilike. An example of the direct Greek-to-Germanic transmission of many Christian words, via the Goths; probably it was used by West Germanic people in their pre-Christian period. The word also was picked up by the Slavic tongues, probably via Germanic (Old Church Slavonic criky, Russian cerkov). Finnish kirkko, Estonian kirrik are from Scandinavian. Romance and Celtic languages use variants of Latin ecclesia (such as French église, 11c.). Phonetic spelling from c. 1200, established by 16c."
Name, when you look up the name "Church", you connect this to a goddess name "Circe". Here in the Wiki states this on "Church": church (n.) Old English cirice, circe "place of assemblage set aside for Christian worship; the body of Christian believers, Christians collectively; ecclesiastical authority or power," from Proto-Germanic *kirika (source also of Old Saxon kirika, Old Norse kirkja, Old Frisian zerke, Middle Dutch kerke, Dutch kerk, Old High German kirihha, German Kirche)."
"This is probably [see extensive note in OED] borrowed via an unrecorded Gothic word from Greek kyriake (oikia), kyriakon doma "the Lord's (house)," from kyrios "ruler, lord," from PIE root *keue- "to swell" ("swollen," hence "strong, powerful").

The word also was picked up by the Slavic tongues, probably via Germanic (Old Church Slavonic criky, Russian cerkov). Finnish kirkko, Estonian kirrik are from Scandinavian. Romance and Celtic languages use variants of Latin ecclesia (such as French église, 11c.)."
"Phonetic spelling from c. 1200, established by 16c. For vowel evolution, see bury. After the Reformation, church was used for any particular Christian denomination agreeing on doctrine and forms of worship. As an adjective, "pertaining to a church," from 1570s. Church-bell was in late Old English. Church-goer is from 1680s. Church-key "key of a church door" is from early 14c.; slang use for "can or bottle opener" is by 1954, probably originally U.S. college student slang. Church-mouse (1731) "a mouse supposed to live in a church" (where there is nothing for it to eat) is proverbial in many languages for poverty."
Now, look up the Goddess "Circe": "Circe (Ancient Greek: Κίρκη Kírkē pronounced [kírkɛː]) is an enchantress in Greek mythology. She is a daughter of the god Helios and either the Oceanid nymph Perse or the goddess Hecate. Circe was renowned for her vast knowledge of potions and herbs; one of her Homeric epithets is polypharmakos ("knowing many drugs or charms"). Through the use of these and a magic wand or staff, she would transform her enemies, or those who offended her, into animals. Then this is why the Medical Depts. has the Caduceus (Kerykeion) and why she is known for drugs, which is "Pharmakos" or Pharmacy....
