If there is one rule to follow in solving this puzzle, it is to begin with the premise that a repetition of archetypes or myths across time…or across scale…should not be seen as an invalidation of any particular archetype or myth or legend, but as a repetition of resonance held within the field of potentials that form our reality. An underlying theme may actually hold a purpose that is being reintroduced across time in order that its purpose might be fulfilled.
Intuition tells us when something is inherently wrong, even when we are told that it’s right. It arouses a whisper of righteous indignation as the threat of physical, emotional or psychological violation is felt. It awakens us to the presence of the Dragon.
When a cultural dictate or religious dogma stirs an intuitive resistance, it does not forebode of some inherent flaw in our ego. It is there to signal that something in that practice or dogma is inherently untrue, harmful, manipulative or potentially dangerous to one’s conscious or unconscious being.
A well-honed intuition is the spearhead of free will and free will is the birthright of us all. The responsibility is on each of us to develop our own free will and to exercise it with wisdom. It is the role of the noble Knight, the intuitive ego to safeguard the natural and inviolate parameters of spiritual and physical sovereignty and free will.
Nothing is ever truly resolved by surrendering free will to the imposition of control by others, be they pretender Gods, cultures or perpetrators of oppression of any kind. Understanding the evil committed by the abuse of free will and, in balance, the evil committed by the suppression of free will is at the heart of the battle for the souls of mankind.
Archetypes found repeatedly in myth and legends describe brave and noble knights who vanquish terrible dragons and free virgins bound for sacrifice. In the Dragonslayer’s Puzzle, the virgin is the Queen of Heaven, the Virgin Mary and the ancient Goddesses who have been redefined by patriarch, their prodigy ritually sacrificed in blood.
Apparitions of a Goddess-like Lady of Light have been recorded since at least the third century. Apparitions and interaction with pre-Abrahamic and pre-Roman Goddesses dates back even further. Incidence of contact with the Lady of Light had dramatically increased in modern times. She speaks to seers, average everyday people who have no political or religious authority over circumstances, warning of catastrophic but avoidable events that will devastate mankind unless humanity turns to the teachings of Her Son. She is generally perceived as the Virgin Mary though she has referred to herself as “The Lady of the Rosary” or even “The Immaculate Conception”. Both are titles that will help us understand the symbolism associated with her and with the plasma instability.
Stories of Virgin Mothers who bear heroic Sons are commonplace in ancient mythology. The Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus are the most recent iteration of these archetypes. They are linked by many Catholics and by the protoevangelium of Genesis to the symbolism of the Woman of Revelations. The recurrent theme of the Serpent, Virgin and Savior Child is a critical piece of this puzzle so uncovering the origin and true identity of the Serpent and of the Virgin, and discovering what it means that the Virgin is the Mother of the Savior God are paramount.
The Biblical and Mythical Dragon and Woman of Revelations illustrates an archetype that manifests inwardly within levels of our own consciousness and outwardly in cycles of chaotic terror and rebirth. It represents the war over will, horrific battles between extremes of manipulated, prideful rebellion and submissive obedience to power. It recalls trauma set in motion by the separation of mother and child, the foundation of traumatic abandonment and abuse.
Written during the reign of Nero, the Book of Revelations in itself may only be vapor induced vision of the evils of Empire or repercussions from the Romanization of the fledgling Jesus movement by Paul; heretical observations shrouded in subterfuge. It could also be the symbolic retelling of ancient catastrophe played out between the planetary Gods of the skies.
Myths contain unconscious remnants from cycles of ancient traumas, lurking the in the allusions of iconic storytelling. Myths describe Venus and Mars in catastrophic battles with dragons made of arcing plasma. Biblical stories hint at ancestors who either accepted the taking of their virginal daughters as the mates to God-like creator beings, or offered their daughters of off-worlders to placate their draconian overlords’ lust and domination. ‘Dragons? ‘Virgin? This is the repetition of theme.
These scenarios and hundreds more could all have taken place as part of cyclic catastrophic extinction level events on this planet. Ancient tales from India recount devastation that predate anything in Western memory. Sunken cities hint at histories we know too little of. The myths that puzzle us now could be the culmination of stories that have survived millions of years of successive destruction and regeneration.
Catastrophic tales generally begin with an Edenic stage or a Golden Age when mankind walks with God. Then the God(s) become angry and cast humanity out of their paradise. Mythologist David Talbott and physicist Wal Thornhill, along with other members of the Thunderbolts Project have put forth convincing evidence that these stories could reflect the personification of planetary bodies in a transitioning solar system. The plummeting planets are remembered as war-like and vengeful Gods that exact servitude and punishment upon their people. In trying to resolve the deep seeded trauma, humanity is constantly replaying the horrors in a psychotic habitual loop, anticipating the end of the world, feeling a disconnection from God consciousness but not reaching a solution. Immanuel Velikovsky termed this state of traumatic forgetfulness as “mankind in amnesia”.
Cycles within cycles of chaos and creation continue to manifest as reality on every level of scale. We witness cycles and seasons of nature but have rarely imagined that they are echoed on scale of thousands of years or on galactic proportion. Now we can examine ancient tales both as the mythologizing of ancient cataclysmic trauma and as seeds of resonance for our own literal and spiritual rebirth.
If humanity is facing the potential of a cyclic extinction as part of a normal normal cycle of planetary cleansing and regeneration and if humanity is being given a prescription that might prevent or alter the event, then it is important for us to analyze what that prescription entails and what the consequences might be.
We also need to ask who the Woman of Revelations, this Queen of Heaven, this apparition of a Lady of Light really is. We need to ask what Her existence as a trans-dimensional entity means to our perception our own reality. We have judged reality through the smoke of mystical Dragon fire. We have the opportunity to move beyond that now. Are we as dreamers in a multifaceted dream? If we indeed live as energetic beings in a fractal holographic matrix, then these apparitions may give us insights into our true nature and awaken potentials hitherto forbidden to us.
The quest to resolve the traumas of our past and set ourselves on a healing course will demand not that we necessarily slay some external dragon but that we face the reflections of our fears and seek the wisdom necessary to wisely use our own free will.
While the Electric Universe proponents are finding evidence for catastrophic events in both mythology and plasma science, it may fall to each of us to initiate an exploration into our own soul memory of ancient events, or at least its residual trauma. In particular, we may benefit from exploring the behavioral pattern of central iconic characters like the Knight, the Holy Child and the Mother goddess and understand our emotional resonance with them.
The Dragonslayer’s Puzzle and my quest to understand the mysterious Lady at the heart of the apparitions is an important key to understanding the symbolism of plasma and ultimately, its relationship with consciousness. The journey through myth and metaphor, pattern and scale may enhance our knowledge of our own past, and help us create a better future.
