Mystical Lapidary and Finding the Crucial Angle
written by ©Mitchell Pluto March 19, 2021
The Ancient Egyptian Ka is an expression of vital essence, a force rising from a place that can not be explained. I haven’t found any strict definition of Ka but it is similar to the word soul. Many sources explain that the hieroglyph that display two arms are symbolic of molding pottery on a potters wheel.
My first impression of Ka is energy. Another translation, based partly on the educated guesses of Julian Jaynes in his book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind mentions qualities of conscious related to autoscopy. This idea of Ka as a double isn’t significantly supported when cross examined but there are some credible details to consider temporarily.
The autoscopic narrative suggests reflection is a kind of illusionary duplication, a way of putting one’s self into an object For example the Tutankhamun sarcophagus is a vivid copy of the pharaoh’s Ka or soul. To me it seems valid to consider Ka a universal signature that represents a forms presence fully. That sense of residence and memory survives the limits of the original. In this case and many others, the forgery is a decoy that influences our subconscious more powerfully than the original source.
Ojibway artist, Norval Morrisseau talked about The House of Invention. He never explained what the House was dogmatically. The meaning I found in what Morrisseau was talking about was the House was a flash of instantaneous possibilities.
Rarely we receive a glimpse of light from The House of Invention unless it’s in our dreams. My personal experience was an astral dream where my future self (Visual Spatial perspective) was touring the House of Invention. All the art was holographic and animated in a sequence of a fluid loops. It was comparable to the graphics interchange format but without any tics, fully three dimensional while suspended in space.
Plato also mentions a House of Invention he called hyperuranion, a place were all the forms live.
Jupiter in Vedic astrology is Guru, otherwise known as an auspicious teacher of light or in old fashion terms, simply- lord of light. This the embodiment of the silhouette ventriloquized by light in the painting. How we talk to ourselves influences our smallest self at an atomic level. The effects of Jupiter widens, extends and liberates space between lines. The planet’s influence causes us to to see things clearly without mistake. Jupiter is benevolent, helpful and fatherly. It has everything and doesn’t need anything. With it’s massive weight it moves obstacles effortlessly. Jupiter rules the 9th house of theurgy, learning, spirituality and awareness of reality.
