It is related to the myths of Thoth, and Hermes Trismegistus, all of whom in various tales are said to have drunk "the white drops" (liquid gold) and thus achieved immortality. It is also associated with the Qur'an's Al Khidr ('The Green Man'), and is mentioned in one of the Nag Hammadi texts.

http://gargoyles.wikia.com/wiki/Phoenix_Gate


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_%28mythology%29
"The phoenix has long been presented as a symbol of rebirth, immortality, and renewal. Renaissance"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gate
"A gate is a point of entry to a space enclosed by walls, or a moderately sized opening in a fence. Gates may prevent or control entry or exit."

-Renaissance Gate-

http://history-world.org/renaissance.htm

The term Renaissance, literally means "rebirth" and is the period in European civilization immediately following the Middle Ages, conventionally held to have been characterized by a surge of interest in classical learning and values. The Renaissance also witnessed the discovery and exploration of new continents, the substitution of the Copernican for the Ptolemaic system of astronomy, the decline of the feudal system and the growth of commerce, and the invention or application of such potentially powerful innovations as paper, printing, the mariner's compass, and gunpowder. To the scholars and thinkers of the day, however, it was primarily a time of the revival of classical learning and wisdom after a long period of cultural decline and stagnation.

The new birth of resurrection(phoenix) known as the "Renaissance" is usually considered to have begun in Italy in the fourteenth century, though some writers would date its origin from the reign of Frederick II, 1215-1250; and by this Prince - the most enlightened man of his age - it was at least anticipated. Well versed in languages and science, he was a patron of scholars, whom he gathered about him, from all parts of the world, at his court in Palermo.

The Phoenix Gate has the ability to bear the user to any point in time or place when accompanied by the incantation of

**DEFLAGRATE MVRI TEMPI ET INTERVALIA**

I have not seen this series but I did go through the links and images.

There appears to be a goal of targeting the subconscious minds of young fans with the notion that shape-shifting, winged reptilian-human hybrids are cool.

This is similar to the "Vampire = Stylish and awe-inspiring" feed to the subconscious through Underworld, Twilight, New Moon etc.
Strong Humanity is belittled as beastly Werewolves [Lycans, eerily rhyming with Lyrans, our actual heritage.]

The second goal is to slyly initiate clever fans into demonology even though the intention would appear to be revealing Gnostic Truths or Hermetic Wisdom. The trick here is that unawakened hybrids would gain power from positive occult practices, and then they can be hired for negative work when needed.

Hermetic Wisdom is great but after a time when an initiate is not seeing results, the Goetia and Invocation based magick gets very very tempting.


A good piece about this has been authroed by conspiracy research John Scudamore: http://www.whale.to/c/gargoyle.html

I suppose life is what you make it, Interesting interp.

-Magick or reptiles.. things of that nature etc was not of interest to me.

Or perhaps I am just seeing what I want to see. Remove the dross of mundane symbols and look at whats underneath.

I found only good messages about helping your own self and things to look out for.

And regardless of what the nature of my posts seem like, they are not conspiracy minded.

I have never been interested in summoning demons or anything like this.

---*Edit: I would probably summon a p!ssed off Alex Jones by accident, He would spend the next hour convincing me with compelling documents & high-tech visualization on what a poor choice I made.

On second thought perhaps I will look into all that after all, ranting alex could be fun

MBlake,
Divine Power available for use in the Physical Universe is ultimately Neutral. The Good Soul will accumulate and use it for good using say Hermetic Techniques. The Dark Siders are selfish and do not want the selfless to beat them, hence they connive and mislead wannabe White Magicians using their weaknesses.
There have been good souls who have used even so called "satanic" rituals for achieving good results, or something for a common benefit. I know of a dark side ritual which was used to save many lives in an Indo-Pakistan Conflict [1971].

IQ, what were the repercussions of the use of that dark side ritual? Hard to imagine there wouldn't have been some cost, even with good intentions and outcome.

I do not know the cost for this exact ritual but as you rightly said there is a price to pay. Usually, a few humans have to be sacrificed as "payment". The advanced dark Tantrik will determine some individuals who have huge karmic debts, and then offer them to the Entity. This is supposed to help allevaite the debts of the sacrificial victims.

It is a messy affair, very few magicians mange to escape with minimal karmic debts of their own.

Interesting thread guys~

This kinda reminds me of those TV shows like, Vampire Diaries, Secret Circle. I was thinking, oh man, they are really going to mess kids up at this rate (with all the witch craft stuff).

I had actually wanted to make a thread on warning people here on LL about the dangers of following Gurus with the original intent of mystic schools/meditation/yoga etc.

["Hermetic Wisdom is great but after a time when an initiate is not seeing results, the Goetia and Invocation based magick gets very very tempting."]

~Yup along the lines of what usually happens. Every single person who studies metaphysics, whether it's healing or anything else, always wishes for better psychic abilities or confirmations from the spirit realms. This already sets one up for potential seductions from the dark side.

The light always attracts the dark, cuz the dark is always trying to overcome the light, or wanting the light to lift it to a higher vibration. So usually seduction happens to Gurus, healers, etc who have reached a pretty high level of enlightenment. This is exactly how the bible described the, "devil," trying to seduce Jesus by offering him anything of his heart's desire.
Many gurus start out with good intentions, but afterall they're human...so many succumb to the offer in the end. Trading their soul in for more powerful psychic abilities; healing, levitation, etc. The darkside needs to be worshipped, and gets this thru the Guru. Cords/vectors are established between the gurus & his students. The students put their guru on a pedestal which is like worshipping him, & this feeds the darkness, but drains your energy in doing so.

Anytime a meditation/yoga/mystic school group that insists on charging ridiculous amounts (even if they know you're broke), taking up too much of your time, or does, "initiations." BEWARE, especially the so called initiations. You're literally agreeing to be corded to them by getting initiated.

They wont do anything to you as long as you comply, but the moment you decide to leave the group...They'll send black magic attacks after you. Sending dark entities to mess with you.

It's serious stuff, and they can easily locate you cuz you're vectorized to them. Moving out of the country helps throw them off energetically tho, but they can still find you pretty fast.
Calling in angelics & asc masters can remove the attacks temporarily. Ultimately, you need a hardcore shamanic/pranic healer who knows how to, "physically," remove vectors energetically along with utilizing the help of angelics/masters.

So all this witchcraft stuff is like a fast track to inviting in darkness, without even having reached a certain state of enlightenment. The vampire scene the last few years has already created enough vampy wannabes...now there'll be more witch wannabes playing hocus pocus without understanding the dangers of, "spells."

------------------------

IQ,

I actually came in here, cuz I wanted to ask you about vedic astrology & wasnt sure where to post. I know you're studying it now. So far, what major pros & cons do you see btwn using Vedic & western astrology?? Thanks so much!

IQ: Hmm... that is messy... I can imagine the sacrifices don't have a say in this matter either.

I know I wouldn't want to be sacrificed in such a way.

Agent_009: I would imagine in the case of someone involved with this in a large country, say the continental US or Russia, moving cross-country would also be sufficient, especially if someone were to move to a place with a higher or different energy signature, like say from Moscow to Siberia, or Northeastern US to southwestern US/California. (I have heard California has a lot of energy points).

Hmm... the guru thing makes me think of a phrase I've thought about in the past: "Dark Illumination"

BlackSeraph,

Nope, if you apply the logic, ALL energy can move through time & space.
Besides, I've seen people still corded or vectored to their dead abusive parent/lover before. Just cuz someone dies, doesnt mean the energetic cord is cut. Energy cannot be destroyed, only altered.

I got this girl out of a cult before, and after she left the U.S. for Africa to, "clear the air," the dark entities still pursued. Didnt end for her, until she sought the help of a reeeally good shaman.

Right now, I'm able to protect myself pretty well, but I'm not at the point I would want to help others remove vectors/entity attacks, etc. It's dangerous & powerful stuff. Cords, perhaps, cuz it's less dangerous than vectors. I'm still apprenticing with a very gifted shaman who's able to levitate, etc. The darkside has tried to seduce her before when she had reached a high level of enlightenment. She said it had been, "very," tempting but was able to say no.

-------------

I want to make it clear, it's not just gurus of the East Indian tradition. It could be healers, shamans, any metaphysical practitioner. So be very careful whom you choose to follow or learn from!!

Very true analysis Agent!
I am thinking of using "Violet Colored" Scissors to cut any cords we are able to visualize in our Pineal Gland. This symbolically helps in weakening the pulling force of the psychic cords from the Aura.

About Sidereal/Vedic Astrology, I am getting excellent results with Vimshottari Dashas [Vedic Directions]. However, Vedic Interpretation of Fated Events is not showing more accuracy than I thought. Whole Sign Tropical is looking stronger overall when I apply Vedic Interps. Initially I found good results for Sidereal Whole Sign but as the cases checked increase, Tropical wins with about 10% more accuracy.

My experience is there isn't much to worry about. My girl is a huge Harry Potter fan, and she watches Wizards of Waverly Place (which included a wizard dating a vampire, btw) and the like. None of that got her interested in magic because to her it was fantasy, just like people who read comic books don't typically (if ever) expose themselves to radiation in the hopes of becoming mutants with super powers because it's just a cool story to them not to be confused with reality. They know it's make believe (which is strange to me given how many ADULTS don't seem able to realize that...) Her watching magic rituals on Kim Possible didn't get her into magic anymore than watching Kim Possible in space got her interested in being an astronaut.

She did have a short-lived love for Twilight and got me to read the book. In return I let her watch my Buffy DVDs and she almost instantly forgot Twilight. In season 2 she even decided Xander was better boyfriend material than Angel (and gave good reasons for it, IMO, which surprised me).

But as Willow got into witchcraft she finally got interested in Wicca (as that's what Willow called it). Having been part of Wicca before I explained it to her as best I could and loaned her Drawing Down the Moon and The Spiral Dance. She then realized that real Wicca and witchcraft weren't anything like Buffy (or Harry Potter, etc) and lost all interest in it.

She did--after I talked about him--get briefly interested (I think mostly out of morbid curiosity) in Aleister Crowley, but I had a quick cure for that: I loaned her 777aOQWoAC and my plan of boring her to death (though I did honestly answer her questions about it) until she lost interest succeeded.

So despite spending so many of her formative years obsessed with occult and vampire theme books and movies, she doesn't cast spells, drink blood, summon demons, or even believe in it. She's not even interested in astrology.

And given that I also volunteered for a children's summer reading program which featured Harry Potter and related activities (like making wizard hats to wear), attending birthday parties (as an entertainer) of countless girls, having babysit quite a few kids and taken kids to the Hannah movie (many of whom were also into Wizards of Waverly Place and Harry Potter themselves with a few even talking about Twilight), I've seen virtually nothing to make me worry about them drinking blood, being possessed by demons or becoming adepts of the left hand path.

The only thing I can think of offhand that I've seen are a few teens into $ilver Ravenwolf's McWicca, which just doesn't bother me anymore than any other religion.

95% or more kids will not be affected at all. Their subconscious mind will have an acceptance of this stuff if they encounter it as grown ups, thats about it. The purpose of all this "Occult Programming" in the media is for the special 5% who have psychically active DNA sequences [inherited or randomly activated] with which they can work white magic or dark magic. The game plan is to make this 5% adept, and then lure a vast majority of them to the dark side lodges and maintain control over the Earth and the Astral Plane. The good adepts are allowed to leave the Earth Plane and the Astral Plane forever unless they choose to come back to rescue their soul mates from this hellish cycle of perennial births and deaths.

The Three (Weird/Fate) Sisters.

The name Urūr (Wyrd, Weird) means "fate".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wyrd

Wyrd is a concept in Anglo-Saxon culture roughly corresponding to fate or personal destiny. The word is ancestral to Modern English weird, which retains its original meaning only dialectally.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norns

The Norns in Norse mythology are female beings who rule the destiny of gods and men, a kind of dŪsir comparable to the Fates in classical mythology.

1
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ur%C3%B0r
"That Which Has Come To Pass"
2
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ver%C3%B0andi
"Happening" or "Present"
3
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skuld_%28Norn%29
"Debt" or "Future"

Thence come maidens
much knowing
three from the hall
which under that tree stands;
Urd hight the one,
the second Verdandi,
on a tablet they graved,
Skuld the third;
Laws they established,
life allotted
to the sons of men,
destinies pronounced.

***

Past,Present,Future.

Three legs of Apollo on the Oracles(female) Tripod.

http://ancienthistory.about.com/od/delphicoracle/g/081109tripod.htm

Definition: Tripod comes from Greek words meaning "3"+"feet" and refers to a three-legged structure. The best known tripod is the stool at Delphi on which the Pythia sat to produce her oracles. This was sacred to Apollo and was a bone of contention in Greek mythology between Hercules and Apollo.

http://www.delphi-tours.com/pythia-oracle/

Opposite from common belief, Pythia was not one person, but the title of every priestess delivering the prophecies. There were three Pythias at the height of the Delphic Oracle. Past,Present,Future.

http://www.goddess.org/vortices/notes/delphi.html

"but there is also a madness which is a divine gift, and the source of the chiefest blessings granted to men. For prophecy is a madness, and the prophetess at Delphi and the priestesses at Dodona when out of their senses have conferred great benefits on Hellas, both in public and private life, but when in their senses few or none." (Phaedrus, 243)

But being out of one's senses does not mean that one is "plunged" into a state of frenzy. On the contrary, all ancient paintings of the Pythoness show her seated on her tripod with a laurel sprig in her right hand and a bowl of water in her left from which she descries the oracle. No picture of the Pythoness shows her in a frenzied state, nor would she have been able to hold a bowl of water in that condition.


"She sat on a brass tripod, with a brass bowl filled with water in one hand and a laurel sprig in the other; it was not fumes from the cavern which intoxicated the Priestess, for oracle had been given there long before the murder of Python by Apollo(Ethylene Gas Fumes); the Pythoness was entered by the Spirit of the Vortex while alone in the lower cavern, protected by her two assistants who remained above. When she ascended she gave oracle in the ancient Cretan tongue, which was gibberish to the uninitiated, but was translated or interpreted by the priest and given to the inquirant. When the spirit was too weak to enter the Pythoness, she used a plant to induce a weakened physical and mental state; the plant which induce the trance-like state grew near the temple, and Coretas' goats had become intoxicated from eating the leaves of the tree (or bush), while the sheep, which are grazers, not browsers, were not affected. Coretas, however, had not eaten the leaves, but had become intoxicated after he had drunk a tea he had made from the leaves - which our priestesses say is a Laurel which grows only in that area; but originally oracle was given to the priestess when she was in an orgiastic state in the lower chamber and her assistant priestess conveyed the oracle to those who waited above." (The High Priestess also stated that while the fumes did not intoxicate, they produced a sense of euphoria which elevated the Priestess the same way music elevates the soul.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crete

Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the thirteen administrative regions of Greece. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own dialect, poetry, and music). Crete was the centre of the Minoan civilization, the earliest "high culture" civilization in Europe, which built the first palaces in Europe.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minoan_civilization

Minoan civilization was a Bronze Age civilization that arose on the island of Crete, came to dominate the shores and islands of the Aegean Sea, and flourished as a maritime power from approximately the 27th century BC to the 15th century BC. It was rediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century by British archaeologist Arthur Evans. Will Durant referred to it as "the first link in the European chain."The earliest inhabitants of Crete may have settled as early as 800,000 BC, during the Middle Paleolithic age. Hand-axes of the type attributed to Homo erectus in Africa, except the material is local quartz, rather than flint, have been found at Preveli Gorge in southern Crete. However, it was not until 5000 BC that the first signs of advanced agriculture appeared. Minoan civilization is considered to have begun with the palace complexes that appeared in the Bronze Age. The relationships of the Minoans with the more ancient peoples of Crete are unknown.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vortex

A vortex (plural: vortices) is a spinning, often turbulent, flow of fluid. Any spiral motion with closed streamlines is vortex flow. The motion of the fluid swirling rapidly around a center is called a vortex. The speed and rate of rotation of the fluid in a free (irrotational) vortex are greatest at the center, and decrease progressively with distance from the center, whereas the speed of a forced (rotational) vortex is zero at the center and increases proportional to the distance from the center. Both types of vortices exhibit a pressure minimum at the center, though the pressure minimum in a free vortex is much lower.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethylene

Ethylene (IUPAC name: ethene) is an organic compound, a hydrocarbon with the formula C2H4 or H2C=CH2. It is a colorless flammable gas with a faint "sweet and musky" odor when pure. It is the simplest alkene (a hydrocarbon with carbon-carbon double bonds), and the simplest unsaturated hydrocarbon after acetylene (C2H2).

Ethylene is widely used in chemical industry, and its worldwide production exceeds that of any other organic compound. Ethylene is also an important natural plant hormone, used in agriculture to force the ripening of fruits

Paul Atreides: I am the whirlwind.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whirlwind

A whirlwind is a weather phenomenon in which a vortex of wind (a vertically oriented rotating column of air) forms due to instabilities and turbulence created by heating and flow (current) gradients. Whirlwinds occur all over the world and in any season.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bene_Gesserit

The Bene Gesserit choose to use indirect methodologies to further their goals, rather than wield overt power themselves. They have noted the Taoist principle that whatever rises must fall; and so rather than taking direct control of the human race, they instead manipulate the social and political order with subtlety and insinuation, often using extraordinarily long-term stratagems spanning generations. The Bene Gesserit avoid appearing too rich or powerful, or revealing the extent of their powers, to prevent being seen as overtly responsible for the rise and fall of governments and empires, and to avoid any organized backlash. To this end, the Bene Gesserit provide some of their trained initiates as wives and concubines, and will train the daughters of noble families for a fee.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everything_That_Rises_Must_Converge

Everything That Rises Must Converge is a collection of short stories written by Flannery O'Connor during her final illness. The title of the collection and of the short story of the same name is taken from a passage from the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. The collection was published posthumously in 1965. It includes an introduction by Robert Fitzgerald, and nine stories.

http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Jacob

Jacob was the ageless protector of the Island for more than 2000 years(roughly a whole age of the zodiac). He was born on the Island with his brother(must of been a female age, the brother was the opposite sign?), the Man in Black and lived there, eventually in the statue of Taweret, until his brother convinced Ben to kill him.

Jacob and his twin brother spent centuries debating the nature of humanity, all the while trying to find a loophole to kill each other.(Faith/Pisces & Science/Virgo have done this to each other for how long now?) He repeatedly left to visit potential successors whom he drew to the Island. He also served as an unseen leader by proxy for a group of Island people. After his death, Jacob reappeared as a ghost in his youthful bodily form. He finally reappeared in his adult bodily form to his last surviving candidates to pass on the position of protector.

http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Everything_That_Rises_Must_Converge

In "The Incident, Part 1", Jacob can be seen reading this book while on a park bench directly before John Locke is seen falling out of a window. In this same episode we see Jacob talking to his rival of sorts about different aspects of how things around them and in general take place(The effects of an astrological age and also the observation of how nature behaves during that time), which is a connection to the way the novel was written and what it is about. The book is also about flawed characters who sometimes go through some spiritual growth or change and often meet a shocking end, often of a violent nature, which is similar in many regards to the events that happen on Lost. Specifically it is similar to what is happening to the characters Jacob is visiting, particularly John Locke who at the moment has plummeted to what very easily would have been death for most people.

About the Vortex,

Non-Literal

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_of_light

According to special relativity, c is the maximum speed at which all energy, matter, and information in the universe can travel. It is the speed that all massless particles and associated fields (including electromagnetic radiation such as light) travel in vacuum. It is also the speed of gravity (i.e. of gravitational waves) predicted by current theories. Such particles and waves travel at c regardless of the motion of the source or the inertial frame of reference of the observer. In the Theory of Relativity, c interrelates space and time, and also appears in the famous equation of massĖenergy equivalence E = mc2.

*Many old teaching try to break/exceed time and space, for the mind.*

Music is normally with it somehow.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kj178APgdno

Also a sound, a building up of great power and a release of some kind. (much like sex in the material/external sense. Something else when done directly with the mind, using your bodies power.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athena

Eventually Zeus experienced an enormous headache; Prometheus cleaved Zeus's head with the double-headed Minoan axe, the labrys. Athena leaped from Zeus's head, fully grown and armed, with a shoutó "and pealed to the broad sky her clarion cry of war. And Ouranos trembled to hear, and Mother Gaia..." Plato, in the Laws, attributes the cult of Athena to the culture of Crete, introduced, he thought, from Libya during the dawn of Greek culture.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birth

Birth is the act or process of bearing or bringing forth offspring. The offspring is brought forth from the mother.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idea

An idea is a concept or mental impression. Very often, ideas are construed as representational images; i.e. images of some object. In other contexts, ideas are taken to be concepts, although abstract concepts do not necessarily appear as images.

http://www.wisegeek.com/why-are-boats-called-she.htm

One plausible theory is that boats are called she because they are traditionally given female names, typically the name of an important woman in the life of the boat's owner, such as his mother(birth canal). It has also been surmised that all ships were once dedicated to goddesses, and later to important mortal women when belief in goddesses waned.

Paul had a problem.

He was surrounded by people with knives pointed at him.

He picked up a knife, killed them.

**

Paul had another problem.

His people were surrounded by others with knives pointed at them.

They picked up the knife, killed them.

**

Paul had yet another problem.

His planet was surrounded by other planets, those planets had knives pointed at his planet.

His planet picked up the knife, was not able to kill them all.

His people joined others

They all pointed knives at him.

He was surrounded yet again.

He can't kill them all, atrocity!

They would kill him, Justice!

http://dune.wikia.com/wiki/Zensunni

Zensunni was a religious belief system prominent with many cultures spread across the Known Universe, especially those descended from disadvantaged and enslaved peoples.

They were followers of a schismatic sect that broke away from the teachings of Maometh (the so-called "Third Muhammed") about 1381 BG. The Zensunni religion is noted chiefly for its emphasis on the mystical and a reversion to "the ways of the fathers." Most scholars name Ali Ben Ohashi as leader of the original schism but there is some evidence that Ohashi may have been merely the male spokesman for his second wife, Nisai.

Later, the Zensunni predisposition was manipulated by the Bene Gesserit, via their Missionaria Protectiva arm and Panoplia Propheticus strategy, for their own political objectives. One of the most prominent homes of Zensunni beliefs, Arrakis, was of particular interest in this regard. The exclusivity of the critical Spice Melange on the planet made the resident Fremen, staunch followers of Zensunni, of natural interest to the Bene Gesserit.

The emergence of the powerful Paul Atreides, and his adoption of Fremen ways, gave Zensunni beliefs a dramatic new popularity. After his ascension to Emperor Paul embarked on a ferocious jihad that brought great violence and turmoil. The stark contrast of these actions vis-ŗ-vis pacifist Zensunni beliefs was not lost on some of the faithful. <---- That was one of the problems. The faithful are the ones who hold things together when things are rough.

http://dune.wikia.com/wiki/Missionaria_Protectiva

The Missionaria Protectiva was an arm of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood that was responsible for sowing the seeds of superstition in primitive cultures, so that the Sisterhood could take advantage of them. They were responsible for spreading the Panoplia Propheticus (myths, prophecies, and superstitions).

This "religious engineering" spread "infectious superstitions on primitive worlds, thus opening those regions to exploitation by the Bene Gesserit."

The Panoplia Propheticus is the collective term used to describe the superstitions and prophecies laid down by the Missionaria Protectiva of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood.

http://dune.wikia.com/wiki/Orange_Catholic_Bible

The Orange Catholic Bible (or OCB for short), also known as the Koranjiyana Zenchristian Scriptures, the Accumulated Book, or the Zenchristian Navakoran, was one of the most important religious texts in the known universe.

It was supposed to be a fusion of all significant religious thought in human history, with a strong emphasis on religious beliefs originating on Earth. These included the Maometh Saari, Mahayana Christianity, Zensunni Catholicism, and Budislamic traditions. It was produced by the Commission of Ecumenical Translators in the wake of the Butlerian Jihad. Its supreme commandment was:

"Thou shalt not disfigure the soul."

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/disfigure

To mar or spoil the appearance or shape of; deform.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soul

A soul Ė in certain spiritual, philosophical, and psychological traditions Ė is the incorporeal essence of a person, living thing, or object. Many philosophical and spiritual systems teach that only humans have souls, while others teach that all living things, and even inanimate objects (such as rivers), have souls. The latter belief is commonly called animism. Soul can function as a synonym for spirit, mind or self; scientific works, in particular, often consider 'soul' as a synonym for 'mind'.

It would be nice to have a living book that was constantly updated with all significant human thought past,present, and up and coming (future).

Also the three sisters can be synonymous with many others due to an amoral nature,

The Three Slayers of Goodness, of Man, of Life, of the World, of the Universe.

Perverted Thought (Comes mostly from uncurbed emotions)
Uncurbed Emotions (No grip on yourself)
Destructive Actions (Comes from the other two combined)

The Magus died bringing the three to restriction.

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/get-keep-a-grip-on-yourself

-to make an effort to control your emotions and behave more calmly
-"I just think he ought to get a grip on himself - he's behaving like a child."
-"Stop panicking and get a grip on yourself!"

http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/grip

power and control over yourself.
*Synonyms or related words for this sense of grip*
Power, authority, influence and leadership: oligopoly, leadership, power, authority, control, domination, might, greatness, monopoly, force.

You can not grip what you do not know is there, therefore, Know Thyself. You stand fair chance of cutting yourself down otherwise.

Evanescense
What You Want

Do what you what you want, if you have a dream for better
Do what you what you want till you donít want it anymore
(remember who you really are)
Do what you what you want, your worldís closing in on you now
(it isnít over)
Stand and face the unknown
(got to remember who you really are)
Every heart in my hands like a pale reflection

Hello, hello remember me?
Iím everything you canít control
Somewhere beyond the pain there must be a way to believe we can break through

Do what you what you want, you donít have to lay your life down
(it isnít over)
Do what you what you want till you find what youíre looking for
(got to remember who you really are)
But every hour slipping by screams that I have failed you

Hello, hello remember me?
Iím everything you canít control
Somewhere beyond the pain there must be a way to believe
Hello, hello remember me?
Iím everything you canít control
Somewhere beyond the pain there must be a way to believe

Thereís still time
Close your eyes
Only love will guide you home
Tear down the walls and free your soul
Till we crash weíre forever spiraling down, down, down, down

Hello, hello, itís only me
Infecting everything you love
Somewhere beyond the pain there must be a way to believe
Hello, hello remember me?
Iím everything you canít control
Somewhere beyond the pain there must be a way to learn forgiveness
Hello, hello remember me?
Iím everything you canít control
Somewhere beyond the pain there must be a way to believe we can break through

The Voice
(Reverend Mother and Paul use this against each other in the clip above, the voice distortion you hear is just there so you know when they are using it. In the books the ability was "Masked" with incredible skill. You had to be skilled in it to notice another using it.)

Bene Gesserit are trained in what they call "the Voice" ó a means "to control others merely by selected tone shadings of the voice." By modulating the subtleties of her voice, a Bene Gesserit can issue commands on a subconscious level, compelling obedience in others that they cannot resist, whether they are consciously aware of the attempt or not. This control can be as subtle as influencing thoughts and motivations, or as strong as forcing physical actions in the subject. To effect this, the Bene Gesserit must "register" the intended target by analyzing his or her personality and vocal patterns through observation or seemingly innocuous direct questions.

Reverend Mother: What do you think they mean, these dreams of yours?

Paul: Why don't you tell me?..

The subtle psychological power of suggestion

As professional communicators it is important for us to understand and appreciate all the tools we have at our disposal.

It is important that we understand and appreciate the power of the psychological art of subtle suggestion.

One of the most powerful tools is 'Suggestion', and in this article I want to delve further into the psychological power of 'suggestion'(*For What Purpose Exactly?*) and consider the implications for us as professional communicators and information marketers.

Sure, we can 'suggest' that people purchase our products or take on our ideas in a direct way: "We suggest you buy Blank's Beans because you'll like them" but in all honesty how effective is that going to be? Subtlety is a major factor in modern communication, especially advertising, and being hit over the head with a blatant message doesn't work anymore; too many people have been bludgeoned to death by over-zealous communicators.

So, like I said, it's important that we understand and appreciate the power of the psychological art of subtle suggestion...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind

Theories of mind and its function are numerous. Earliest recorded speculations are from the likes of Zoroaster, the Buddha, Plato, Aristotle, and other ancient Greek, Indian and, later, Islamic and medieval European philosophers.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helmet

All helmets attempt to protect the user's head by absorbing mechanical energy and protecting against penetration. Their structure and protective capacity are altered in high-energy impacts.

*In case you are wondering, I like the german helmet because its profile is the most sexy, imo*
