You bring up some very interesting points here. I read somewhere only recently that tombs and towers may be connected in esoteric art (think of the Shepherds of Arcadia painting featuring a tomb). I will try and track the point down.
Incidentally there is a thread that inspects the numbers 3 and 5 including some possible associations with the “DNA chains.”
Okay. Moreover in respect to these numbers —in particular the 8— there are other features that may connect to each other. So, to first start with some of them we can notice that Alton place has also those trees linked to it, as supplements the next quote:
Well that again reminds us some sessions, such as the next ones:
Now we can remark that Alton’s name was changed from “Abbey” to “Towers,” as well as it became a “park” used for “visitation,” like is the “camp” mentioned above. Thus, ‘towers’ can be other thing to consider more closely as some is showed next.
Then we see this number 8 —first quote above— repeating within this thread here and there. For example was mentioned “eight-petalled lotus blossom” —which characterizes the Buddhist blessed land, a type of Avalon. E.g. this thread mentions:
Funny also that the number 8 —like 2 zeros?!— is drawn with 2 loops, but at the same time a horizontal "8" symbolizes the infinite. And we have:
Maybe all this can have significant connection to Alton. It turns out that part of the Alton construction is octagonal. Starting in 1998 a renovation was carried out into the Alton Towers that included the called “Octagon.” As claimed:
This is interesting since in ancient Greece happened that an eight-sided building was associated with the 8 wind gods of the cardinal directions. See, as the C’s explain, winds have a relation to “information”, and therefore supposedly to awareness that is “consciousness” as well. Ah, and as we know, a tornado is a type of “tempest” too!!!
Furthermore, probably there are geomagnetic aspects associated with “architectonic elements” arranged into certain numbers and directions. For one example, the researcher John Keel mentioned a story of sinister and enigmatic towers scattered by the Himalayan Asia and elsewhere.
Indeed ancient towers still exist today in the region above, and some are star-shaped with “8 points”.
Afterwards I wrote the above, came to my mind to search the forum and turned out I found a reference that cites the next video.
You said: "Funny also that the number 8 —like 2 zeros?!— is drawn with 2 loops, but at the same time a horizontal "8" symbolizes the infinite".
However, in three dimensions, the figure for infinity could look side on like a type of mobius strip, which could represent the matter/anti-matter universe or space time/time space. I seem to recall Ark discussing the mobius strip with the C's in a session from not long ago. Möbius strip - Wikipedia. I may be way off the mark here though.
Where you mention:
"Then we see this number 8 —first quote above— repeating within this thread here and there. For example was mentioned “eight-petalled lotus blossom” —which characterizes the Buddhist blessed land, a type of Avalon. E.g. this thread mentions:"
You also said "Maybe all this can have significant connection to Alton. It turns out that part of the Alton construction is octagonal. Starting in 1998 a renovation was carried out into the Alton Towers that included the called “Octagon.”“name Anthony occurs in no less than eight of the Bacon plays, including the Tempest.”
“eight descendants of Arthur’s men”
“eight otherworld caers (castles), which actually are all the same.”
“eight-petalled lotus blossom”
I was not aware of this structure at Alton Towers. Hence, this is a great find. Thinking about this made me think of Mandalas Mandala - Wikipedia, which although they are usually linked with Eastern art and religious philosophical traditions (e.g., the eight-petalled lotus blossom), they can also be found in Christian art too. Here is an hexagonal example from a Boston chapel:
This particular stainglass window formed part of an experiment into consciousness called the 'Marsh Chapel Experiment' or the 'Good Friday Experiment' in 1962. Ref. Marsh Chapel Experiment - Wikipedia
I have been doing further research into the artist Nicolas Poussin and the 'Shepherds of Arcadia' painting (he actually did two paintings on the same theme). Poussin was almost certainly a Rosicrucian initiate and would have looked to Bacon as a master. The Rosicrucian teachings were all about raising consciousness, think of Bacon's 'seven step' program (this reminds me of the C's saying to build your staircase one step at a time). They also encoded a lot of scientific and esoteric information into their works of art. This was certainly true of both Poussin and Bacon (in his guise as Shakespeare).
Talking about your reference to trees, that quote came with the C's first reference to 'Knighted ones':
Session 4 May 1996:
"A: First, some blockbuster stuff for the Knighted ones... Look upon a detailed map, and reflect, remember lonely journeys from long ago, and begin to unlock shattering mysteries which will lead to revelations opening the door to the greatest learning burst yet!!
A: Visits through trees, forests, leading to a perfectly square clearing."
This was followed by a subsequent quote in the session 3 May 1997:
Q: Is there any connection to the fact that those guys at the University of Tenerife were communicating back in February and March? Might there be more to this connection?
A: Maybe, but do you know the history of this place?
Q: Well, no I don't. That one slipped by. I will follow that one... You also once before said that when a certain 7 people assembled into a perpendicular reality, that the learning would be exponential. I am sure we are not there yet, but I am wondering if this information I have discovered about bloodlines and potential activation of DNA has any connection to that idea?
A: Build your staircase one step at a time.
I have previously proposed that the Court of Seven was the establishment of the 'Order of the Knights of the Helmet' by Francis Bacon (see post above). Did Bacon, a Rosicrucian Master, by doing so create a new perpendicular reality? If so, is this what the Forum is supposed to be doing?
I would also like to quote Ark in the Wave series since what he says links with what I have mentioned above:
The Wave Chapter 39 The Court of Seven:
Ark said: “But why ARE all these Templars and Rosicrucians important? Because it is all knowledge. Pieces of knowledge from here and there. We are not gonna use or try to use this knowledge. But somehow it is necessary for us to know this so as to find out the best possible use of this knowledge.”
BTW: Oak trees were highly prized in England during the period covering the 16th -19th centuries bacause they were used to build wooden warships, particularly the masts. Hence the Royal Navy's marching song 'Heart of Oak' Heart of Oak - Wikipedia , which includes the lines:
Heart of Oak are our ships
Heart of Oak are our men
The oak in the song's title refers to the wood from which British warships were generally made during the age of sail. The "Heart of oak" is the strongest central wood of the tree. The phrase "hearts of oak" appears in James Rhoades' 1921 English translation for Oxford University Press of the Aeneid.
I have also been focusing on the 'Holder of the Trent' and 'Baphomet' quotes and I think I can shed more light on these two subjects, which I will do in a couple of future posts.
However, what I have been finding when I study these things and what the C's have said in their various statements down the years is just how subtle the C's clues can be. They often have double or even triple meanings (think of the 'Third Man' theme). Their clues form part of a mosaic and it is like looking at a magic eye picture Why Can't Some People See Magic Eye Pictures?. You have to look through such a picture until you can discern an image and then once the brain has focused on it, it all starts to become clearer. From the information I have uncovered, I think this thread still has a long way to go since there is still so much to discover.
