When we contemplate the nature and power of symbols we should keep in mind the teachings of Master A-Logos on symbolic thinking and the pandaemonic world of night consciousness. A-Logos says:
‘The world of symbols is the world of night consciousness. Against popular opinion we believe that myths are born from symbols. The true symbol itself is a revelation of an enthusing power (such as a spirit, a daemonic essence) and never only a metaphor. The benighted communes with the powers of the living All and the encounter, the mating of passive soul (initiate, poet, visionary) with the active daemonic souls or essences triggers the manifestation of a true symbol. When symbols are glyphs of ecstatic encounters they form part of a language that communicates realities which can never be approached through conceptual language. Real symbols always impact magically and thus have the power to reawaken the facility of ecstatic esoteric vision. For the rare aristocrats of the soul they become doorways into the living, daemonic Kosmos.’
—  Dr. Arthur Moros, from the forthcoming ‘Cult of the Black Cube’, 2017.

jynersos  asked:

What do you think of Octavia and her horse? Octavia's character is obviously based around her actions/impulsiveness. And for the first time she's being called out for her actions and suffering the consequences (Kane firing her, trikru being slaughtered by ice nation, getting stabbed). So I feel that her fall off the cliff was representative of her fall from grace and, as she was rescued by her horse Helios, the name meaning the personification of the sun/lightness, her redemption arc will begin.

I don’t think what happened to trikru was because of her actions. That was a rivalry with a LONG history. Kane yes. And running away from Echo and fighting her when she tried to take her wasn’t really impulsiveness either.

But I do like your fall from grace, rescued by the light idea. That’s nice.

It reminds  me of when Lincoln kidnapped her in season 1 and she dug her way out of the cave, coming through the earth like being reborn on the ground.

#SherlockLives: The Resurrection

The day is April 23rd, 2017.  It’s an ordinary Sunday afternoon in London.

The crowd bustles, trains whirr, birds chirp.

Life in the city is business as usual.

Three teenage girls take photographs outside 187 North Gower Street, soaking in the ambiance of the Sherlock set.  They step into Speedy’s for a cup of coffee.

The women lament over the loss of their favorite show. On March 8th, the BBC announced Sherlock would not be returning for a fifth series, and cowriters Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss were quick to assure their fans that it was time to lay the beloved program to rest.

But what the women saw next changed their lives forever.
