Texas Aggies, Athletes and the Phantom Horse by Bradford Riley

 

“If I’m a Heisman voter I’m riding the dark horse wearing number 2 from Texas A&M to the finish line.”

Aggies JM 1a

“That evening the slave came in and Aeson took the child from the arms of the mournful-eyed mother and put him in the slave’s arms. Aggie ringAlso he gave him a horn and a ring with a great ruby in it and mystic images engraved on its gold.”

“No heroes were ever better trained than those whose childhood and youth had been spent with Chiron the king-centaur. He made them more swift of foot than any other of the children of men. He made them stronger and more ready with the spear and bow. Jason was trained by Chiron as Heracles just before him had been trained, and as Achilles was to be trained afterward.

“Moreover, Chiron taught him the knowledge of the stars and the wisdom that had to do with the ways of the gods.”

“When he had reached his full height and had shown himself swift in the hunt and strong with the spear and bow, Chiron told him that the time had come when he should go back to the world of men and make his name famous by the doing of great deeds.”

“Half human, half horse, Chiron embodies the best of two worlds. While possessing the stamina and the speed of a horse, he also has the skills of a warrior and the mind of a true scholar. He is also renowned for his skills as a surgeon and a healer. Chiron has an extremely long lifespan and seems to have a regenerative ability that allows him to recover from most injuries.”

“He had for a friend one who was the wisest of all creatures Chiron the centaur; Chiron who was half man and half horse; Chiron who had lived and was yet to live measureless years. Chiron had fostered Heracles, and it might be that he would not refuse to foster Jason, Aeson’s child.”

Rudolf Steiner

Aggies and the ancient vision of the Centaur

“All human beings bear within them another far wiser being — the centaur. But in spite of his wisdom, this centaur is equipped with all the wild instincts of the animals.”

We learn a great deal when we reflect upon the hallowed halls of all that was given to educate us. We are educated partly because we desire to learn something. We are attracted to Universities for diverse reasons. Some are practical, some are traditional. Sometimes our family’s have all attended certain Universities and we are obliged and willing to continue the tradition in ourselves. After all, we base our choices on the University we desire to attend sometimes on the example of the character of our elders, our parents and what we consider, by their own testimony, the discipline and traditions that have given them character, loyalty, location, Texan styled honor, Texan styled tradition or those who finally recognize, at long last, that there ain’t no other anyways but Texan.

Texas A&M 1

The choice of a certain type of teacher and a certain type of education has continued on through thousands of years. We are going to open a consideration into a manifestation of a modern moment in Educational Clairvoyance that unlocks a window into the source of Athletics and Sports which are worshiped at every University.

The problem with what we worship at the stadiums and the sports competitions, that we have made into our own virtual religion, supersedes the calm, quaint wholesome gatherings at Sunday Church. For most Texans it is School- Team- God -Country. There is not even any argument that everyone is most alive, most focused, most attentive, most vividly engaged, praying to God for a win for the home team, on bended knee, or on the other hand, praying to God for our opponents defeat.

At vast Stadiums or the Hometown stadiums where we have been trained to put our hearts and souls into passionate support, it is our loyalty, our vitality, our families, communities, our schools and our teams that elicit from us the most intense, massive group identity, unified passion. Actual Spiritual Vision of what stands behind certain Athletic individuals and certain moments has been missing from what we have sought as the Spiritual Reality behind Athletic participation.

Respect and Protect your unit,
Respect and Protect the Corp,
Respect and Protect God,
Respect and Protect your country.

We are about to raise the bar of Spiritual and objective perception of the mystery of Athletics and Sports that no one has ever revealed. What are the intimate, objective connections between, the magnificent, astonishing revelation of astonishingly gifted Athletes and the religious perception and revelation of what we know a Human Being Is?

The bridge between our longing to justify our emotional investment in THE GAME; and the missing religious and educational insights that are our intrinsic justification as to why Sports have such a heightened sense of meaning for us, has never been explored the way we are about to explore the subject. So saddle up. There are a thousand mundane reasons why we love the game but there are very few reasons that can awaken in our souls, once more, the true foundations of the religion of Athletic Insight.

There certainly is objective recognition in The Heisman Trophy. Aggies Johnny HeismanGranted, we are able to dissect the performance of our chosen Athletes with precise statistics and living, video documentation, with such micro-intensity, that we may see and affirm, beyond a doubt, that such and such an Athlete is gifted. A gifted year, a gifted season, an inspired game and a gifted Athlete register on our highly attentive, religious, fanatical and loyal worship of our favored and selected schools and teams.

We become voracious, fanatical fans to our school teams but this does not lead us to the objective foundation of the miracle of what makes an Athlete of supreme skills shine for us with objective clarity. Athletes arise and shine for us and we recognize them and immortalize them but we have never been given the opportunity to merge our recognition with solid clairvoyant observation.

We can now give a sample of modern objective clairvoyance and Athletic Observation and put the pieces of a puzzle together that has been missing from our education and our observations since the loss of objective clairvoyance and the rise of Institutionalized Western University Education.

“He makes an 8-yard run up the middle a work of art”

“This was the artistic principle in earlier times; the artist portrayed what the clairvoyant described to him or what he himself had seen. Artists were often initiates. It is said that Homer was a blind seer, but that means that he was clairvoyant. He could look back into the Akashic Record. Homer, the blind seer, was seeing much more in the spiritual sense than were the other Greeks. Thus, the centaur was once an actual human form.” Rudolf Steiner, Egyptian Myths and Mysteries, Lecture 7

We need to comprehend the greatest ongoing mystery behind all Athletic skill and reconnect in our hearts and souls to what the ancients saw and observed and were inspired by, but which we have lost the ability to see and understand. We sometimes have to be in the right place at the right moment to catch a glimpse of what the ancients saw clearly in their spiritual sight, which they knew clearly and precisely the connections to the spiritual forces of education, which we have lost altogether in the subjective celebration of our modern Teams and Players.

It isn’t that we don’t understand a Star Athlete when we see one, it is rather that we have never reopened the portal that existed in the ancient past that has allowed us to recognize the ancient Greek Heroes as the Greeks saw them. We have lost vivid enhanced knowledge and replaced it with a derogatory disdain for what we consider and are falsely educated to believe, as useless, meaningless MYTH. If it says Myth, it translates as fantasy and can be dismissed by our rational intelligence.

Our intellects reject fantasy, but here lies a severe problem. In the highly gifted Athletic Individual we can look through that individual clearly and consciously and see the working forces that identify for our cognition and perception, the reality that is no longer Myth but rather the missing Science we have lost, of the religious and spiritual comprehension that shines brightly, inspiring and invigorating what we recognize and all agree, is a truly gifted Athlete.

We now have an opportunity to raise our vision and our educational insights to the lofty level that once shone forth from ancient Greek Civilization.

“A gymnasium is a type of school of secondary education in parts of Europe. The word “γυμνασιον” (gymnasion) was used in Ancient Greece, meaning a locality for both physical and intellectual education of young men.”

In other words what was alive back then, in the field of sports, of heroes, of skills on the battlefield or playing field, arose for the ancient Greek, from the skill sets of heroes that were once historical individuals. Achilles, Ulysses and the seer of ancient Greece, Homer had reported an accurate historic event. The ancient city of Troy and the battle on the shore and the Trojan Horse, were not myths, as we would like to believe but rather solid historical human beings that the Blind Bard Homer was able to vividly see.

In history we have to give full credit to Heinrich Schliemann, (Click Link) who through his childhood savored every line of the Iliad and the Odyssey of the great clairvoyant and historical novel of the foundation of Greek Civilization. He managed to retain in his soul the power of the vision that had inspired his youth with such passion, so much so that he directed his entire adult will and resources, maps, money and intellect to locating the exact spot where Troy could be found.

The Seven Layers of the cities of Troy were found by Heinrich Schliemann and what everyone dismissed as myth, was now historical fact  (Click link for further study) . The founding of all the mysteries of Western Culture, all that we are taught about the ancient Heroes of the past Greek Civilization, which we happily discard as bogus myth, wasn’t myth at all but the plumb line of the depths of the last vestige of ancient clairvoyance that rayed forth from the Blind Seer Homer.

Schliemann had a particular distinct birth imprint that higher education acknowledges. It is a curious and highly spiritual mark that appears in some individuals. This mark has appeared in Joan of Arc and Johannes Kepler and Heinrich Schliemann. This much we know about certain astonishing souls. That January 6th, the birth date of  Joan of Arc, Johannes Kepler and Heinrich Schliemann, is when, at the end of what is dismissed by our education, as nonsense, the Twelve Holy Nights that end on January Sixth, are exceptional days. Exceptional forces are given in the final Embryonic stages of development, during the Holy Nights, for certain individuals.

The most vivid insight into these Twelve Holy Nights, in which Kepler, Joan of Arc and Schliemann share, is the curious ancient Norwegian tale of  Olaf Åsteson. Heinrich Schliemann was born on January 6th, 1822 and shattered the myth of ancient Troy and established the historical fact of Homer’s ancient vision and account of the events and heroes of Troy. (CLICK LINK)

“Already as a little boy Heinrich Schliemann was obsessed by the idea that Homer had given an account of true history in his great epic poems – the Iliad and the Odyssey, and that Troy had really existed. He did all to find this famous place. And he achieved one of the greatest sensations of archaeology: The discovery of Troy and Mycenae. His firm trust in Homer was the foundation for his discovery of Troy. Because of the descriptions in the Iliad and the Odyssey Schliemann was convinced that the hill Hissarlik must be identical with Troy – and he was right!”

The thread of ancient clairvoyance slowly deteriorated and dissolved until, Johnny Manziel, quarterback for Texas A&M, in the year of our Lord, 2012 A.D. flashed across our sight. What was spiritually known back then, about the highest level of achievement of ancient Athletes and Warriors was now back in plain view. Aggies helmets of troy ancient GreeceSuddenly in the football season of 2012 a vision of Sports and Spiritual Education returned once more to living reality that has been hidden behind our admiration and devotion to Athletic ability.

We are looking now, into a mystery of Athletic Spirituality that has been buried like Troy under mounds of rubble. You have to be in the right place at the right time to uncover one of the richest insights into the mystery of Athletics and it was the 2012 football season of Texas A&M that helped reopen one of the most hidden spiritual mysteries of humanity.

This significant opportunity of objective perception, which lifts our most ancient insights into the present of the 21st century, requires all of us, everyone of us, to be in the right place at the right moment. Jonathan Paul Manziel (born December 6, 1992), also known by his nickname, Johnny Football, is an American footballquarterback for the Texas A&M Aggies. His significant 19th year, 18.6 to 19 year old moment (SEE LINK) has allowed our lost ancient vision to reawaken and catch up to our absolutely new 21st century clairvoyance.

This moment of being in the right place at the right time, doesn’t just apply to Johnny Manziel. Manziel’s sports videography, his boyhood biography and his performance on the field just happened to fall within my own studies, so that indeed I was in the right frame of mind, with the right insights to see an event that has powerful objective implications for the future of Education.

The event we all shared in 2012 sent time ripples out from the shared illumination and recognition that we all saw and recognized with our own eyes as Johnny Manziel coming alive as an Athletic Marvel. Time ripples were felt and experienced that swept deep into the ancient past and far, far, forward into the future of anatomy, physiology and the Spiritual Revelation of Sports and Athletes.

Aggies time wave window into ancient visionWas there a new breed of Super-Quarterback breaking out? Did a time wave of ancient Athletic inspiration SHINE through for an instant? Were some able to see backwards in time and catch a glimpse, for an instant, of the ancient mystery of Sports and Athletics?

Some indeed caught a glimpse of the ancient inspiration of Chiron surfacing again, calling it the age of the Super-Quarterback but their instant inspiration was wrecked on the rocks of the speed of our intellects and the rip-tide of the flow of INFO and INTEL and an avalanche of a heaping plateful of instant gratification meatballs in the form of intellect and statistics. Our own devouring intellects prevent the mind from lifting our spiritual vision and holding that vision for anything longer than the next statistical micro-burst.

Athletic Super-Cell outbreaks and surges of  new Super Athletes, sometimes comes in waves. “Johnny Football did not lasso a twister and ride it. Anyone who’s watched the way he wreaked havoc on defenses and, sure, on the sensibilities of Heisman voters, understands the tale cannot be true.” Manziel was one of the astonishing twisters arising from a newly generated super-cell of Centaur and Chiron in-pouring, inspirations.

A completely different layer of reality comes to the surface when we catch a glimpse of the Etheric Centaur behind athletes, abilities and instincts that we could glimpse in the performance on the field by Johnny Manziel. But something was cresting, some wisdom from the ancient world was cresting and a surge, a time wave of insight and ability and skills were arising in how we quantify instinct, intelligence and inspiration in a new breed of arising Athletes.

Like the Sun-light glancing off the smooth sheen of a lance-tip, some commentators caught a glimpse of the rising of the ancient dawn of the Spirit of the Athlete. We catch this glimpse and know what it means or we tend to bury our insights under a barrage of statistical commentator giddiness which can be repeated, rehashed, re-fried and regurgitated but with no miracle and no awakening or recovery of the towering inspiration that stands as the hidden mystery behind Athletic Astonishment.

“…a quarterback with a throwing motion better suited for a javelin than a pigskin, simply used his superior athletic skills to lead his team to the national title.

On that November night in 2006 Tim Tebow was 19 years old

(CLICK LINK) Spiritual Facts of the 19 year old Phenomena 

“Keep in mind the five previous Heisman-winning quarterbacks before Tebow — Troy Smith, Matt Leinart, White, Carson Palmer and Eric Crouch — averaged 3,237 yards of total offense and 34 touchdowns on 453 plays. The five since — if you include Manziel — are averaging nearly 1,300 yards and 16 touchdowns more per season.”

“The stats are impressive. The only other quarterback with 200-plus rushing and passing yards in a bowl game was Vince Young in the 2006 Rose Bowl. But it’s watching Manziel that’s so much fun. He makes an 8-yard run up the middle a work of art, zigzagging his way around defenders who go to grasp him and come up with air. He darts in and out of holes, makes tacklers miss by quickly shifting gears and directions before they can figure out what’s happening.”

“I don’t know why it took me so long to see it before, but my sudden realization was eye-opening. It was as if I could see into college football’s future. Just as Tebow stepped onto the college football stage fully formed in legend, a Paul Bunyan-esque otherworldly nature characterizing his every step, so too has Johnny Manziel. There’s a Haley’s Comet quality to both men, an eye-opening and startling nature about their emergence. Most stars, especially at the quarterback position, take time to step into the limelight. Not Tebow or Manziel.”

My wife is a loyal Aggie, so I had the opportunity of being immersed in the 2012 football season, like everyone else on the planet, where the miracle of Johnny Manziel slowly coalesced before our eyes. However my university training was in Europe, at a university known as The Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland.  My wife is a highly successful Aggie, loyal and proud with the usual, rather noble character traits I attribute to the rituals and camaraderie of Aggieland.

My university was the very first Agricultural Science systems in the world to recover the insights of the Organic Science of matter, before anyone had even reported it missing. The Goetheanum is known for it’s Biodynamic Agricultural Courses through out the world. It is also the origin of the largest private School system in the world, known as Waldorf Education. But sadly, though I grew up in Illinois and played football in Ohio, and live in Texas, there were no football teams in Switzerland where I attended school. Waldorf Education is not known for it’s massive sports programs. However the educational depth that allowed my insights and studies to see through the Johnny Manziel phenomena put my vision in exactly the right spot at the right moment.

My school teaches us to observe students with very intensified, cognitive interest. So Johnny Manziel, his passing performances, his foot work, speed, agility were, as anyone could see, plainly real.Missouri v Texas A&M I reproduced in my mind’s eye part of my training in football and part of my training in Greek Gymnastics at my school in Switzerland. There were very clear stages of development in the Greek Gymnastics, but they culminated in the discus and throwing a javelin or spear. So watching the arc and passage of the passes of how Johnny Manziel threw his passes, I could vividly see what is known as CHIRON OR KHEIRON, (Johnny Manziel in action. The magnificent Centaur behind the spirit , the etheric mystery behind the physical Athlete – Click link).

Everything that the ancient vision and our lost clairvoyance had understood as the inspiration of the Centaur – Chiron – through the training of Warcraft, CJP108041hunting, in both the javelin and the snap of the football and the snap and focus of the hunted target are all rooted in the higher forces of  ‘ super intelligent higher-instincts’  of flight or fight that is the science of the animal and the science of the instincts and capacities of the animal realm. The dynamic aim, that is involved in the Spear and firing the football to a designated moving target, while all of ones capacities are also in motion, in seconds, in fakes and eluding capture or being tackled and still finding that target, echoed everything in how the Greeks vividly experienced themselves without a satellite network or HD big screen T.V or a local Sports Bar. But the ancient Greeks were able to see something spiritually behind those instincts that we have medically and spiritually lost sight of.

Aggies throwing 1

Johnny Manziel brought sight, arm, and baseball instincts and insights with him into his Super-Quarterback skills sets. The art of pitching and throwing a baseball and the bio-mechanic habits that enter as distinct habits of body memory and etheric lymphatic and muscle memory grow with us as our bodies develop from childhood,Aggies Johnny baseball to youth to fixed habits of our adult gait, posture, stance till they become the signatures of our unique personalities.

But in the elasticity of childhood and youth our invisible mentoring, the factors inside our developing childhood imitation and imagination, our attraction to various athletic archetypes, the ancient Archetypes of throwing, of dodging, of eluding, of aiming, of nailing IT, sliding, tumbling, and the classic Greek forces that are in the foundation of our bodily structures, all rest on the mystery of the Centaur that is the invisible part of all our visible skills sets.Aggies arm spear BASEBALL javelin football

The Greeks experienced the ancient heroes and their Athletes vividly and inwardly as actual dynamic spiritual etheric memory and sight. Which is how the instant RE-PLAY, the recorded film, slowed to frame by frame, stifles or awakens in us the latent forces of Spiritual vision.What happens when actual spiritual vision reawakens in conjunction and in union with our enthusiasm, awe and wonder, and the added gift of observing in slow-mo and in vivid replay an Athletes or our teams movements?

In Spiritual Vision, we are trained to review and relive moments through inner vision and we have full control of those memory events but because it is an actual spiritual and precise field of inner observation, we can catch flashes of exactly what stands behind great Athletes. The ancient Greek experienced with far more vividness than we do today, the shining inspirations behind the vision of what truly stands behind every great hero, athlete and warrior. So yes, our frame by frame instant replay can stifle or enhance our wonder and awe and thereby awaken or numb our actual spiritual vision. The opportunity was once more given to re-awaken the power of ancient inner vision at the dawning of the Johnny Manziel phenomena  that was just appearing in the 2012 AGGIE football season. There it was for an INSTANT!

There was something more profound behind the Tale of Troy and there is something more profound behind every single human being who feels called to Athletic Excellence. What that profound reality is reveals a mystery of etheric and clairvoyant anatomy that is well above our current level of pedestrian educational and medical parameters. We shall look directly into this Etheric and Physical anatomy of each human being a little later, but I guarantee you that you have never, in your entire educational evolution, ever seen the transposition and the transformation of the higher development of the lungs, the way it appeared to the ancient Greeks.

The ancient Greeks relived in their etheric mirroring capacity, which was much more vital, strong, healthy and alive in the ancient past, relived the tales of the ancient heroes and could SEE and KNEW as they saw, that they could vividly identify the inspiration and mentoring of the mightyAggies Chiron and the Etheric Centaur Giuseppe Maria Crespi Centaur – Chiron, behind the super animal instincts and intelligence of their most cherished Athletes and Warriors.

“What myth does for you is point beyond the phenomenal field toward the transcendent. A mythic figure is like a compass with one leg in the field of time and the other in the eternal. The image of a god may look like a human or animal form, but it’s reference is transcendent of that.”  Joseph Campbell

What is behind instincts and skills that all sports enthusiasts relish?  The hunter, the Athlete, the Sports Person, the Warrior doesn’t necessarily believe in much, but they do respect what they see and witness as Intelligent Instincts that appear in Athletes and hunters, warriors and the trained skills of martial arts. But the inspiration and reality for these skills sets could be seen, literally and spiritually seen, recalled by Homer and the ancient Greeks and we are about to see them arise again before our eyes.

Today we have the heroic canned music, the videos and the power of the stadiums, the fans, the commentators, but we have long since lost any connection to what the ancient Greeks once saw, illuminated behind their heroes. It was no myth. It was true etheric vision and memory that the Greeks saw. And with hardly any effort on our parts, (okay a little effort) all of us, could see this Youthful ability once again arise in Johnny Manziel. ( Click Link and WATCH Spiritual Instincts of the Phantom Horse on the field with Manziel and the ancient Centaur).

I knew that the archetype of such Athletic ability I was seeing in the phenomena of Johnny Manziel  (it could be any Athlete on any team, anywhere, or any scout who is in a position to observe Athletes and most assuredly those recognized former Heisman trophy winners – there is an objective shine and skill set that is visible physically and spiritually) the archetype of that skill set appears under the guidance of the Centaur. Well that was my first inner perception.

My second perception, regarding Johnny Manziel was the word ZIEL as in the German” mit Dem Ziel” which translates into “with the aim or intention”. Goal, Target, Aim, Intention and the other part of his last name, ManZIEL (Click Link), was the HUMAN BEING OR MAN who targets. I was trained to look into the Word and into the name we carry through life, as revealing interesting clues.

The third clue made me inquire as to his birthday and his age. I was slightly shocked to see that he was born under the Centaur or Sagittarius.Aggies Centaur star constellation His age was significantly 19 and I have had an intense study of how the rhythm pattern in every human biography, everyone without exception, every 18.6 years through our entire lifetimes, our entire biographies, from our nineteenth, to our thirty-eighth, to our fifty-seventh, and to our seventy-sixth year, we encounter, we literally have a job performance review, literally and spiritually, in every human biography, our literal guiding Angel returns every 19 years, to review how we are doing with our intentions that we brought with us into incarnation. (SEE LINK)

Johnny Manziel was not only born with the star Rigil Kentaurus shimmering in his childhood etheric body, he also brought with him from out of the constellations, his mentoring teacher, Chiron to guide him.

Johnny Manziel is a true Archetype, an echo of an ancient Greek Mystery, a vivid shining Athlete that has come out of the constellation of Alpha Centauri, guided by ancient Chiron, the King of the Centaurs.

He carries for us the very Phenomena of the Phantom Horse (which inspires and overshadows all of Texas myth and legend). Johnny Manziel was born under the sign of the riddle of Chiron. We could witness the very agility and dynamic athletic skills that once inspired and moved the ancient Greeks, while observing Johnny Manziel in the chaos and clarity of the eye of the storm.

When blind Homer told of Troy and painted a portrait of the mentor of heroes, the Greeks did not need statistics and commentator confirmations. The ancient Greeks literally saw spiritually the Great Chiron breathing through the Living Word as they listened to the Initiate Bard Homer. The meter of the ancient Greek Hexameter was designed to sustain the pulse and breath of the Speaker and to fill his lungs with Etheric Life and Soul (Click Link) . Homer through his Hexameter and recitation was able to evoke the etheric and clairvoyant vision of everything that stood just behind and in the solid substance of the ancient heroes.

Athletic Pulse and Breath

“In our human speaking and breathing, there are two distinct and vital rhythms, we can easily detect in ourselves: breathing and pulse. You can not specify their exact relation to each other, because we are talking about a living creature, but a healthy person takes between 16 and 19 breaths per minute. During the same period, the pulse beats about 70 strokes. The ratio is thus that the pulse beats about 4 strokes in 1 breath.” To attain etheric spiritual sight, as we set our breathing and pulse to the rhythm of the hexameter structure a remarkable thing happens. It was here, within the hexameter, where I learned how Sports, Greek gymnastics, Speech and the Living Word, within our breathing, our heart-beats and our anatomy opened a vast inner doorway.

“If we now enter man’s inner nature, we find something set against the external world-configuration: a marvelous harmony between the breath rhythm and blood rhythm. The rhythm of breathing — a normal human being breathes eighteen times per minute — is transferred to man’s nerves, becomes motion. Physiology knows very little about this process. The rhythm of breathing is contained, in a delicate psycho-spiritual manner, in the nerve system.

“As for the blood rhythm, it originates in the metabolic system. In a normal adult, four pulse beats correspond to one breath rhythm; seventy-two pulse beats per minute. What lives in the blood, that is, the ego, (Click Link) the sun-like nature in man, plays upon the breathing system and,through it, upon the nervous system. If one looks into the human eye, one finds there some extremely fine ramifications of blood vessels. Here the blood pulsation meets the currents of the visual nerve spread through the eye. A marvelously artistic process takes place when the blood circulation plays upon a visual nerve that moves four times more slowly.

“Now look at the spinal cord, its nerves extending in all directions, observe the blood vessels, and become aware of an inward playing of the whole sun-implanted blood system upon the earth-given nervous system. The Greeks with their artistic natures were aware of this interrelation. Aggies lung eye and breathing Apollonian Logos laws chiron achilles harpThey saw the sun-like in man, the playing of the blood system upon the nervous system, as the God Apollo; and the spinal cord with its wonderful ramification of strings, upon which the sun principle plays, as Apollo’s lyre.

“Just as we meet architecture, sculpture, the art of costuming and painting when we approach man from the external world, so we meet music, rhythm, beat, when we approach the inner man and trace the marvelous artistic forming and stirring which take place between blood and nerve system.

“Compared to external music, that performed between blood and nerve system in the human organism is of far greater sublimity. And when it is metamorphosed into poetry, one can feel how, in the word, this inward music is again released outward. Take the Greek hexameter with its initial three long syllables followed by a caesura, and how the blood places the four syllable lengths into the breath. To scan the first half of an hexameter line properly is to indicate how our blood meets, impinges on, the nervous system.”

Yes we can go to a gym and work out but I found a powerful work-out ritual for our lungs and our hearts that makes use of the Word and the Spirit that meets and intersects with our lungs. I happened to have also been a long distance runner in high school where I first learned about the highest Zen of breathing, running and pulse. It is there, as any true Athlete will tell you. We arrive at a kind of spiritual ‘high’ a ‘runners high (Study This Link)’, that etherically renews our energy via a mighty pattern of pulse and breath, where we sense we could run forever without tiring. When I was taught to penetrate the hexameter and regulate my pulse and breathing, I entered a kind of Zen-Yoga, ‘runners-high’. And once there one discovers that the images behind the Iliad and the Odyssey come back vividly alive within our etheric vision.

Once in the hexameter pattern and breathing, spiritual vision, Word portrayal and Imagination, start to shimmer before our inner vision and we are vividly carried into the very experience that the ancient Greeks understood, about Pulse-Breath-Lung and Super flashes of vision, when they listened to the blind Bard Homer.

The experience of the blind bard Homer was a pay-grade higher than our experience of the blind bard Stevie Wonder. The instant replays and Slo-Mo’s rippled out in waves from the etheric super-cell and vortex that Homer created. A glorious floating  tableau of vision came alive in, enveloped and was seen and shared by everyone who felt the pulse of combined Word painting, Breath and etheric picture forming power under the open sky. The Temple, the stars, the gods were at their fingertips and for a moment they lived in true Etheric Memory and true Etheric vision.

Homer

From the Iliad

Book I

Sing, O daughter of heaven, – of Peleus’ son, of Achilles,

Him whose terrible wrath – brought thousand woes on Achaio,

Many a stalwart soul did it hurl – untimely to Hades,

Souls of the heroes of old: – and their bones lay strewn on the sea-sands,

Prey to the vulture and dog. – Yet was Zeus fulfilling a purpose;

Since that far-off day, when – in hot strife parted asunder

Atreus’ sceptered son, and the – chos’n of heaven, Achilles.

Say then, which of the Gods – bid arise up battle between them?

We can recognize in Johnny Manziel and his youthful sports abilities, his birth within the region of the shadow of the Phantom Horse that runs through all that ties the etheric forces of the wild West to the etheric vision of the ancient Greeks. Texas – The Phantom Horse – the ancient Greeks and finally we were all witnesses to the validity of Johnny Manziel’s Heisman virtuosity,Aggies Spear and running pass as one of the shining new breed of Super-Quarterbacks.

If ever we could SEE the results of Chiron the Centaur in a human form, it presented itself most clearly for those who had eyes to see it, in the performance and Athletic abilities of Johnny Manziel. Each of us are given a primal Etheric Phantom Centaur which we are, everyone of us, required to tame, break, bronco ride and bring into the service of our highest human skills. It is part of the Mystery of the Phantom Horse.

“RIGIL KENTAURUS (Alpha Centauri) with PROXIMA CENTAURI (Alpha Cen C). Among the most famed stars of the entire sky, surely rival in renown to Sirius and Polaris even though not visible to much of the world’s population, is the “foot of the Centaur,” Rigil Kentaurus, “Rigil Kent,” the first star of Centaurus, probably much better known as Alpha Centauri or just Alpha Cen. Its fame, indeed that it is the third brightest star in the sky (after Sirius and Canopus), lies not in its extreme characteristics but in its geometry, as it is the closest star to the Sun, lying a mere 4.32 light years away, the distance known to 0.4 percent.

“Placed well down in the southern hemisphere, in fact the most southerly of naked eye stars, it cannot be seen above about 30 degrees north latitude, and College Station and Texas A&M lie at 30 degrees latitude .Alpha Centauri is located very far to the south on the sky’s dome. Most North Americans never see it. The cut-off latitude is about 29 degrees north, and anyone north of that is out of luck. In the U.S. the line passes near Houston, Texas and Orlando, Florida. So it is that Texans and the Southern Region (the SEC click link) is still powerfully influenced by THE PHANTOM HORSE, the CENTAUR and star forces of Alpha Centauri.”

And then the living reality of the Centaur opened the doorway to exactly what I was witnessing, enjoying, celebrating and astonished by, as I observed with immense warm enthusiasm the stunning performances on the field by Johnny Manziel. There it was, the vivid reality of the Archer, known as Chiron that was vitally illuminated in the living Etheric Body of Johnny Manziel Aggies Chiron the Centaur and training Achillesand every other Athletic miracle we are privileged to openly celebrate.

We don’t normally have the trail of etheric vision and the lost science of Athletics merge into one specific instance. It kind of depends on the right conditions and the right moment where our education and our insights come together in concise warm wonder of the soul. It also helped that my wife was an Aggie and I had attended a school that provided deeper insights into such simple things.

I mean, I am hardly a football fan, my wife has grown up with football her entire life. I had no cluttered fields of emotion either way. To me the Aggies were unique because I went to Kyle field so many times, but mostly because of the Spirit of the Aggies that I saw in my wife’s spiritual character. I shared with interest, how the loyal fans, game after game, where undaunted the Aggies always almost nearly coalesced. I was suddenly objectively surprised to see a real, actual phenomena of the soul and spirit, suddenly shining forth and radiating out, with no egotistical coach or control freak who pounced on the unpredictable instant decisions, inspired and common sense and skilled decisions, the Higher Animal Instincts on the field of the hunt and the laws of the game, that moved within the dynamic instincts of Johnny Football.

We all watched for arrogance, pride, egotism, but he continued to shine and have inspired, instinctive, spiritualized Athletics flood forth onto the field where ever the Aggies played.  Of course he appeared in a real Texas warm hearted country song because Texans honor football, horses, cattle and pick-up trucks as a kind of religion (SEE LINK Country Western Johnny Manziel Country Boy).

What flows through our skills sets as inspiration are in fact spiritual forces that we bring with us into life. Our invisible Etheric Bodies are the guide and comforter, the inspiration and artistic symmetry of just what we can do with our physical, bodily instrument. We praise god but the god of great Athletes arises from the starry genius of the Centaur that each of us carries in our etheric bodies. I just happened to be in the right condition at the right moment where my trained thinking had an opportunity to observe a significant and powerful spiritual event, if only I could hold onto the Time Portal that had opened up long enough to comprehend the mystery.

Chiron

Etheric Mentor behind the mystery of proficient Athletes.

“The Kentauros was a great teacher who mentored many of the great heroes of myth including Jason, Peleus, Asklepios,Aristaios and Akhilleus. Eventually, however, he passed away from the earth, after accidentally being wounded by Herakles with an arrow coated in Hydra-venom. The wound was incurable, and unbearably painfall, so Kheiron voluntarily relinquished his immortality and died. However, instead of being consigned to Haides, he was given a place amongst the stars by Zeus as the constellation Saggitarius or Centaurus.

“Kheiron’s name was derived from the Greek word for hand (kheir), which also meant “skilled with the hands.” The name was also closely associated in myth with kheirourgosor surgeon. Aggies Arnold Bocklin horse shoes and the phantom horseIn Athenian vase painting Kheiron was depicted with the full-body of a man, from head to foot, clothed in chiton and boots, with a horse-body attached to the human rump.”

“Chiron was honored by all, something uncommon in Greek mythology, so it was ironic that his demise came accidentally when he was grazed by a poisoned arrow shot by his friend Hercules. Because he was immortal the magic poison caused him endless, debilitating torment but could not kill him. From this Chiron is recognized as the original wounded healer, an archetype central to the work of therapists, counselors, prophets, and shaman.

“Hercules eventually secured a divine bargain in which Chiron’s immortality was forfeit to secure the liberation of Prometheus, who was more-or-less Chiron’s cousin, thereby granting Chiron his wish to die and consigning his spirit to the underworld. Yet even that was not to last as his universal esteem led his half-brother Zeus to intervene one last time by raising him to the celestial realm in the form of the constellation Sagittarius (sagitta is Latin for “arrow”), thereby restoring to him an immortality of sorts. In this way Chiron ultimately found his cure beyond death and, in both myth and astrology, he lies as a bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds.

The Ancient Art of Mentoring, Coaching and Developing Athletic Marvels

“While Chiron appears throughout Greek mythology to raise and mentor those destined to be gods and heroes we don’t know much about his personality or educational philosophy. As this is a book about learning these are the things we are most interested in: just how does one learn to be a mythical hero? Luckily Odysseus asked this same question of Achilles when he met him later in his life, and this is what he answered:

“Then he taught me to go with him through pathless deserts, dragging me on with mighty stride, and to laugh at sight of the wild beasts, nor tremble at the shattering of rocks by rushing torrents or at the silence of the lonely forest. Already at that time weapons were in my hand and quivers on my shoulders, the love of steel grew apace within me, and my skin was hardened by much sun and frost; nor were my limbs weakened by soft couches, but I shared the hard rock with my master’s mighty frame.

“Scarce had my youth turned the wheel of twice six years, when already he made me outpace the swift hinds and Lapith steeds and running overtake the flung dart; often Chiron himself, while yet he was swift of foot, chased me at full gallop with headlong speed o’er the plains, and when I was exhausted by roaming over the meads he praised me joyously and hoisted me upon his back. Often too in the first freezing of the streams he would bid me go upon them with light step nor break the ice.

“These were my boyhood’s glories . . . Never would he suffer me to follow unwarlike does through the pathless glens of Ossa, or lay low timid lynxes with my spear, but only to drive angry bears from their resting-places, and boars with lightning thrust; or if anywhere a mighty tiger lurked or a lioness with her cubs in some secret lair upon the mountain-side, he himself, seated in his vast cave, awaited my exploits, if perchance I should return bespattered with dark blood; nor did he admit me to his embrace before he had scanned my weapons.

“And already I was being prepared for the armed tumults of neighboring folk, and no fashion of savage warfare passed me by . . . Scarce could I recount all my doings, successful though they were; now he instructs me to climb and grasp the airy mountain-peak, with what stride to run upon the level, how to catch flung stones in mimic battle on my shielded arm, to pass through burning houses, and to check flying four-horse teams on foot.

“Spercheus, I remember, was flowing with rapid current, fed full with constant rains and melted snows and carrying on its flood boulders and living trees, when the sent me in, there where the waves rolled fiercest, and bade me stand against them and hurl back the swelling billows that he himself could scarce have borne, though he stood to face them with so many a limb. I stove to stand, but the violence of the stream and the dizzy panic of the broad spate forced me to give ground; he loomed o’er me from above and fiercely threatened, and flung taunts to shame me. Nor did I depart till he gave me word, so far did the lofty love of fame constrain me, and my toils were not too hard with such a witness.

“For to fling the Oebalian quoit far out of sight into the clouds, or to practice the holds of the sleek-wrestling bout, and to scatter blows with the boxing-gloves were sport and rest to me: nor labored I more therein than when I struck with my quill the sounding strings, or told the wondrous fame of heroes of old.

“Also did he teach me of juices and the grasses that succor disease, what remedy will staunch to fast a flow of blood, what will lull to sleep, what will close gaping wounds; what plague should be checked with a knife, what will yield to herbs; and he implanted deep within my heart the precepts of divine justice, whereby he was wont to give revered laws to the tribes that dwell on Pelion, and tame his own twy-formed folk [the Kentauroi]. So much do I remember, friends, of the training of my earliest years, and sweet is their remembrance.”

from Achilleid book 2. p.96ff (Latin Epic ca. 1st century AD), by Pablius Papinius Statius

By remaining ecstatically, intoxicated with the external trappings of fame and the familiar and common paradigm of Sports Intelligence, we remain imprisoned within very limited parameters of vision.The Johnny Manziel phenomena in 2012 offered all of us the opportunity to awaken both the ancient wisdom and religion that truly represents Sports, Athletes and Heroes and rebuild a bridge to Spiritual Forces and Ethics that have stood behind Sports for thousands of years.

In other words by witnessing together the fresh and startling phenomena of Johnny Heisman, Johnny football, we were all startled and brought to a deeper revelation. That revelation is the actual hidden mystery behind our infatuation and hunger for participating with Athletic Spirituality.

Johnny Heisman certainly brought religion back to the Aggies. So how do we recover the vitality of religion and celebrate what stands behind every human being and every Athlete?  How do we recover the lost vision of the Stars and Western Cosmology (click link), along with the resurrection of the vitality of how religion is supposed to inspire us, revitalize our insights into the vivid Divine Reality of breathing into our lungs the breath of the Risen Etheric Christ Being?  It simply requires breaking with our old habits of thought and gently introducing richer, stronger, clearer insights that neither coach, nor priest, nor university has yet offered us.

THE PHANTOM HORSE

‘God forbid that I should go to any heaven in which there are no horses.’ ~ R.B. Cunninghame Graham

We make vane, empty idols of the Athletes we worship because we fail to See behind them the deeper mysteries that are part of all of our human physical forms. An absolute Etheric fact, the foundation of our physical life itself, with both sexes,  that inspires such astonishing prowess and skills,Franz von Stuck, Amazone - Franz von Stuck / Amazon - Franz von Stuck, Amazone so that we are all able to witness and celebrate Sports and Athletes together, is in truth part of our own invisible Etheric Centaur, our own Phantom Horse.

We all carry this invisible, mirroring, inward Etheric Centaur, our Phantom Horse, in each of our Etheric bodies. It is the underlying mirroring and imitation force that expands and grows with us from our childhoods.

No matter where we were educated or at what university we have received our degrees, no one, not ever, has actually offered us a window into the inspiration of the Etheric Body and the underlying forces that make-up the secret of our physical athletic abilities, The Phantom Horse. Until now. Until the ancient window to Greek Inspiration and the Age of Chiron swung open again for our 21st century vision.

We can’t cross over into the higher mystery behind Athletics without passing through a profound medical revelation that towers above the insights of all the Professors, Teachers, Coaches, Ministers and Priests we have ever encountered in our lives. Nothing like this has ever been part of our education, that is, until Johnny Football cracked open our inner vision to the Centaur and the Etheric Phantom Horse.

‘There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.’ ~ Winston Churchill

The science of the rotation of the Earth, and the rhythm patterns of every breath and pulse beat that humanity relies upon is imprinted in the configuration and mathematical gestation cycle of the HORSE. There fore the PHANTOM HORSE is left in the unconscious realm. We live in the western mythology of the Horse, but long before the West donned cowboy hats, spurs, chaps, jeans (Click Link Cowboy gear) ancient Greek culture had already understood part of the deeper meaning of the HORSE. The deeper meaning of the horse, THE PHANTOM HORSE and the etheric system and hidden, esoteric secrets of how the horse and the human spirit are related, were all profoundly understood by the ancient anatomical science of the Greeks. The Greeks incorporated the hidden mystery of the horse, the Earth Sciences, and the human etheric body in the living science of Chiron the Centaur.

Since we have 12 months in a year, 52 weeks in a year and roughly 365 days in a year, we are fastidiously, genetically, and spiritually dominated by a remarkable piece of mathematics intimately connected to the Earth. So the problem with the Science of Anatomy and the foundations of Physiology is our lack of ability to connect the profound laws of the science of the Earth with the profound structure of the human being. We deliberately deny our own built in wisdom.

The ancient Greek still had the ability to see the connections in things, but we don’t. We prevent ourselves through our own disconnected education from reawakening the deeper anatomical mysteries hidden in the human being. To have a complete education we must understand the connection between things. Our failures to see the connections between things removes the spiritual forces that verify the hidden science that connects our human life to the whole vivid life of the cosmos. And we prefer to remain disconnected. We don’t want to know that there is a hidden secret behind the physiology and the perfection of the human Athletic ideal.

The average mare has a pregnancy of about 335 days, but normal pregnancies occasionally last over 365 days. The gestation period of the horse is approximately 11 months but can range from 315-340 days in ponies and 320-360 days in the horse. It is not unusual for the gestation period to extend well over 365 days. Watch your calendar. Pregnancy lasts around 340 days, + or – 30 days. Your mare may foal in 310 days or as long as 370 days. Variation of the gestation period in the individual foaling mare is important as it relates to length of pregnancy and other aspects of foaling. Mares may change their foaling habits from one year to the next. The “normal” length of gestation is 340 days; however, this is an average and there are documented cases of “normal” pregnancies ranging from 315 to 365 days. The time it takes for an object to orbit around another object is called its orbital period. Earth completes its orbital period around the sun every 365 days. The further away a planet is from the sun, the longer its orbital period. The planet Neptune, for example, takes almost 165 years to orbit the sun.

Expanding our education, the very things that are left out of our education are the very things that transform good Horse Sense into actual, vital Etheric wisdom. So here are a few things that are missing. The gestation cycle of Elephants are directly linked to the time it takes for the planet Mars to orbit once around the Sun. Therefore the Elephant carries the signature of the planet Mars when it walks the Earth. Therefore the behavior of the Elephant on Earth has much to do with the undercurrent reality of Mars. Just as the gestation cycle of the Horse and the Intelligence of the Horse is the very epitome of the wisdom of the Earth. The very living Etheric signature of the Earth is written into the substance and reality of the Horse. This is plain horse sense, science and spiritual physiology which is bound up with the study of our own Etheric Body, our own invisible Phantom Horse. We carry our own Phantom Horse with us unconsciously so that we remain unaware of exactly why the Horse plays such a powerful part in the mythology of the West.

1. How many days does it take Mars to orbit the sun?
2. What is the gestation period of an African elephant (in months)?

1. It takes Mars 687 days to orbit the sun, the gestation cycle of an Elephant. (365 days for earth to orbit the sun is the gestation cycle of the Horse).

2. The gestation period of an African elephant is 22 months 660 to 780 days is the length of time it takes Mars to orbit once around the Sun. (9 months is the human gestation period connected to Venus. The figure of 260 days is significant for various reasons. It closely matches the period of human gestation, or the completion of nine full-moon cycles ).

The complete gestation cycle of the Bee Community is based on the development of the Worker, Queen and Drone. The full development of the gestation cycle of the Bees are tied directly to the fact that the Sun, our Sun, rotates once, the Sun’s rotation takes 25 to 27 Earth days, the length of time of one Sun-Day. So it takes one Sun-Day, one complete rotation of the Sun is equal to 25 to 27 Earth days. It takes one Sun-Day rotation to complete the development of all the various Bee stages. Queen-Worker-Drone.

Rabbits take from 28 to 35 days to gestate and grow so that we know that the quick cycle of the Moon is rather directly linked to the Rabbit reproduction cycles. Duck, Geese, Turkey’s run on a Lunar hatching cycle of approximately 28 days. But the egg hatching of both Birds and Bees tend to require the Sun forces, and the 27 Earth days rotation amounts to ONE day for the life of our Sun.

Therefore when we approach the secret patterns and rhythms that make up Life and Etheric Wisdom, we come to the secret of the Horse. The laws that are imprinted into the invisible patterns of how we train ourselves to become magnificent Athletes, are revealed in the fact that at the foundation of our patterns and behavior we are SET, just like the horse is SET, into the Etheric patterns of Earth.

These Apollo laws, are the very laws of the Sun, the Logos, when we say Physiology, we are saying Physio-LOGOS, the laws of Apollo are written deeply into foundations of the human being. And as human beings we are running these rhythms unconsciously in and through us because we have within us THE PHANTOM HORSE that rules over all the blueprints and design codes that we must have to be physical human beings.These intimate, hidden design codes of the Horse, our lungs, our breathing and our pulse were understood by the Greeks as Apollonian wisdom.

Laws of the Etheric Life of the Sun, musical, guitar, lyre and Pythagorean, planetary and mathematical harmonies that Orpheus knew of are alive all through nature. These Etheric/Apollonian laws are the foundation for all of our physical life.

“Apollon’s seven-stringed lyre and golden quill led many a lovely strain. To Zeus a prelude, then sang they first divine Thetis, and Peleus.”

That is why the Centaur and Chiron taught the great heroes and Athletes about musical rhythms and harmonies,
Aggies Spear and football the Zen of Running, The Zen of throwing, running, leaping, wrestling, discus and spear for the Greeks, allowed the Athlete to rise to maximum strength, velocity and ability within the laws of gravity, levity, dynamic circumference and targeted Ziel, linear goals.

Johnny Manziel was a prime Apollonian example of the school of Chiron and the Phantom Horse. Athletes reveal in their actions a thrilling balance between Apollo and Chiron, between our quick, vivid, wild instincts and the framework of laws that hold our breathing, pulse and Athletic skills at maximum overdrive.  (Johnny Manziel CONFLICTS BETWEEN INSTINCTS AND ATHLETIC PERFECTION – click link) The human being exceeds the Horse but shares it’s gifts. Let’s find out just what Apollonian Laws are fully anchored in every human being.

HOWDY!

Howdy is the universal Aggie greeting, and for such a small word, it speaks volumes. It says, “Welcome to Aggieland, friend.”

Rudolf Steiner

“Man could not be given a consciousness which is, on the one hand, strong and able to see through the cosmic rhythm, and on the other hand, uncontrolled and full of wild instincts. But the centaur’s animal nature — is tamed and conquered in the next incarnation, during his passage through the world of cosmic rhythms between death and a new birth. The foundation of our lung-system in the present incarnation appears as our physical head, although this is dulled down to an understanding limited to the senses, and what lies at the basis of our lung-system appears as an entire human being whose wild instincts are tamed in the next incarnation. The centaur of this incarnation is, in the next incarnation, the human being endowed with sense perception.Aggies athlete lungs brain coordination

“Now you will be able to grasp something else: — You will understand why I said that, during man’ s existence between death and a new birth, the animal realm is his lowest realm and that he must conquer its forces. What must he do? In what work must he be engaged between two incarnations? He must fulfill the task of transforming the centaur, the animal in him, into a human form for the next incarnation. This work requires a real knowledge embracing the impulses of the whole animal realm; in the age of Chiron, men possessed this knowledge atavistically, in a weaker form. Although the knowledge of Chiron is a knowledge weakened by this incarnation, it is of the same kind. Now you see the connection. You see why man needs this lower realm between death and a new birth; he must master it; he needs it because he must transform the centaur into a human being.”

“Let us imagine the physical organization of the headAggies left and right brain and the physical organization of the lung; from the universe come cosmic impulses that express themselves rhythmically in the movements of the lungs. Through our lungs we are related with the entire universe, and the entire universe works at our etheric body. When we pass through the portal of death, we lay aside the etheric body. We enter that which is active in our lung-system, and this is connected with the entire universe. Aggies lungsThis accounts for the surprising consonance to be found in the rhythm of human life and the rhythm of breathing.

“I have already explained that when we calculate the number of breaths we draw in one day, we obtain 25,920 breaths a day, by taking as the basis 18 breaths a minute (hence 18 x 60 x 24). Man breathes in and breathes out; this constitutes his rhythm, his smallest rhythm to start with. Then there is another rhythm in life, as I have already explained before — namely, that every morning when we awake we breathe into our physical system, as it were, our soul being, the astral body and the ego, and we breathe them out again when we fall asleep. We do this during our whole life. Let us take an average length of life — then we can make the following calculation: — We breathe in and breathe out our own being 365 times a year; if we take 71 years as the average length of human life, we obtain 25,915. you see, more or less the same number. (Life differs according to the single human being.) We find that in the life between birth and death we breathe in and out 25,920 times what we call our real self.

Aggies Sports mysteries and the Lung“Thus we may say; — There is the same relationship between ourselves and the world to which we belong as there is between the breath we draw in and the elements around. During our life we live in the same rhythm in which we live during our day through our breathing.

“Again, if we take our life — let us say, approximately 71 years, and if we consider this life as a cosmic day (we will call a human life a cosmic day), we obtain a cosmic year by multiplying this by 365. The result is 25,920 (again, approximately one year). In this length of time, in 25,920 years, the sun returns to the same constellation of the Zodiac. If the sun is in Aries in a certain year, it will rise again in Aries after 25,920 years. In the course of 25,920 years the sun moves around the entire Zodiac. Thus, when an entire human life is breathed out into the cosmos, this is a cosmic breath, which is in exactly the same relationship with the cosmic course of the sun around the Zodiac as one breath in one day in life.

“Here we have deep inner order of laws! Everything is built up on rhythm. We breathe in a threefold way, or at least we are placed into the breathing process in a threefold way. First, we breathe through our lungs in the elementary region; this rhythm is contained in the number 25,920. Then we breathe within the entire solar system, by taking sunrise and sunset as parallel to our falling asleep and awaking; through our life we breathe in a rhythm that is again contained in the number 25,920. Finally, the cosmos breathes us in and out, again in a rhythm determined by the number 25,920 — the sun’s course around the Zodiac.

“Thus we stand within the whole visible universe; at its foundation lies the invisible universe. When we pass through the portal of death we enter this invisible universe. Rhythmical life is the life that lies at the foundation of our feelings. We enter the rhythmical life of the universe in the time between death and a new birth. This rhythmical life lies behind the carpet woven by our senses, as the life that determines our etheric life. If we would have a clairvoyant consciousness, we would see this cosmic rhythm that is, as it were, a rhythmical, surging cosmic ocean of an astral kind.

[How football, stadiums and Athletic skills developed during the historical period from 1840 to 1879 is part of the Mystery of the Centaur which I will discuss below]

“…event which took place in the autumn of 1879. Now we can only lift the outer veil of this mystery; but even this outer veil is one of the most important pieces of knowledge concerning man. It is indeed a head that we bear within us as the head of a second man; it is a head, but also a body belongs to this head, and this body is, at first, the body of an animal. Thus we bear within us a second human being. This second human being possesses a properly formed head, but attached to it, the body of an animal — a real centaur. The centaur is a truth, an etheric truth.

“It is important to bear in mind that a relatively great wisdom is active in this being — a wisdom connected with the entire cosmic rhythm. The head belonging to this centaur sees the cosmic rhythm in which it is embedded, Chiron Kheiron and Akhilleus Archeology Naples Italyalso during the existence between death and a new birth. It is the cosmic rhythm that has been shown in a threefold way, also in numbers — the rhythm on which many secrets of the universe are based. This head is much wiser than our physical head. All human beings bear within them another far wiser being — the centaur. But in spite of his wisdom, this centaur is equipped with all the wild instincts of the animals.

“Now you will understand the wisdom of the guiding forces of the universe. Man could not be given a consciousness which is, on the one hand, strong and able to see through the cosmic rhythm, and on the other hand, uncontrolled and full of wild instincts. But the centaur’s animal nature — please connect this with what I have told you in other lectures dealing with this subject from another point of view — is tamed and conquered in the next incarnation, during his passage through the world of cosmic rhythms between death and a new birth. The foundation of our lung-system in the present incarnation Aggies lungs brain halvesappears as our physical headAggies lung and brain functions, although this is dulled down to an understanding limited to the senses, and what lies at the basis of our lung-system appears as an entire human being whose wild instincts are tamed in the next incarnation.

“Now you will be able to grasp something else: — You will understand why I said that, during man’ s existence between death and a new birth, the animal realm is his lowest realm and that he must conquer its forces.

Texas A & M founded in 1876

Aggies original 1876

“Father of American Football”

Walter Chauncey Camp (April 7, 1859 – March 14, 1925) was an American football player, coach, and sports writer known as the “Father of American Football”. By the age of 33, twelve years after graduating from Yale, Walter Camp had already become known as the “Father of Football”. In a column in the popular magazine Harper’s Weekly, sports columnist Caspar Whitney had applied the nickname; the sobriquet was appropriate because, by 1892, Camp had almost single-handedly fashioned the game of modern American football.

English Rugby rules at the time required a tackled player, when the ball was “fairly held”, to put the ball down immediately for scrummage. Camp proposed at the US College Football 1880 rules convention that the contested scrummage be replaced with a “line of scrimmage” where the team with the ball started with uncontested possession. This change effectively created the evolution of the modern game of American football from its rugby football origins. Walter Camp is credited with innovations such as the snap-back from center, the system of downs, and the points system, as well as the introduction of the now-standard offensive arrangement of players; a seven-man offensive line and a four-man backfield consisting of a quarterback, two halfbacks, and a fullback.

Why isn’t it appropriate to have TWELVE PLAYERS on the field? What is the mythology of the TWELFTH MAN? Dana X. Bible was originator of the TWELFTH MAN TRADITION. Curious as to what the X stood for, well it stood for Xenophon (431 bc-?355 bc) M, Greek, MILITARY:
Aggies Xenophon general, HISTORY: historian; Greek general and historian; a disciple of Socrates. His other works include Hellenica, a history of Greece, and the Memorabilia, Apology, and Symposium, which contain recollections of Socrates.

Was Xenophon a student of the PHANTOM HORSE and Chiron? Well the title of one of his works tells us, yes he was. Xenophon wrote On Horsemanship; On Hunting“.  The Phantom Horse and Chiron the trainer of Athletes,
Warriors and Hunters goes way back into ancient Greek MythologyThe TWELFTH MAN TRADITION (Click Link) runs out from Dana X. Bible all the way back to ancient Greek Civilization.

In all the works on my blog I have charted and tabulated the age of 33. Numbers are very curious and the TWELFTH MAN TRADITION adds an invisible quantity to the 11 man backfield that the 33 year old FATHER OF FOOTBALL, Walter Chauncey Camp inaugurated. Firstly the age of 33 is shared by incidents and personalities of immense interest to us.Aggies Truman 33rd degree Mason

Harry Truman was the 33rd President of the United States. Truman was also a 33rd degree Mason. Most Law Enforcement and military have the Masons 33 degree hidden criteria as the background for our modern as well as our more ancient human ethical behavior.

Christ was crucified at 33 and we know that Christ is the father of the the full 12 man program. “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”, was on the air for 33 years. But hardly is there a more curious name, DANA X. BIBLE, Dana Xenophon Bible (October 8, 1891 – January 19, 1980) father of the tradition of the TWELFTH MAN.Aggies Dana X. Bible (1934)

Football’s ELEVEN MAN offense set-up was founded by Walter Chauncey Camp and based on the numbers of 7 and 4, which are remarkable numbers that I deal with in most of my blogs. Twelve, Seven, Four are powerful number relationships. But to have a holy tradition of THE TWELFTH MAN, linked to the name BIBLE, DANA X. BIBLE and actualized by Texas A&M tradition, reveals a curious persistence in our human behavior to gravitate to the number TWELVE.

I have analyzed TWELVE in my evaluation of JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN (CLICK LINK) and in an intense study on the Dramatic Arts and Sciences (SEE LINK). I also examine the deepest Biblical insights into the TWELVE DISCIPLES and focus a spotlight into the key destiny of the twelfth disciple and truly uncover a shattering TWELFTH MAN mystery (CLICK LINK) that has never been offered by any of our universities. So a man by the name of Bible initiated one of the most sacred traditions in Texas A&M history.

A great many things, seen and unseen were happening from 1840 through 1879 and beyond. Troy was rediscovered and excavations of the ancient city of Troy were begun in1870 with the discoveries of Heinrich Schliemann. The micro-lab for the mock battles, strategies, and intense magnifying lens for Athletes to shine forth under the proud sun of the god of combat, and football was brought into a highly controlled and efficiently designed system of THE GAME by Walter Camp.

Homer had lit with visions torch the ancient rays of Michael the Archangel of the ancient Greeks to the current battle won by Michael our current guiding ZeitGeist and Time Spirit.Archangel__St__Michael__by_CharlieCo Michael who rayed forth from the voice of the  Blind Seer Homer the sacred foundations of the history of Western Civilization around 750 B.C. shines forth for us anew as the Time Spirit, the Zeitgeist till 2234. The Spirits of the ancient Athletes that Homer saw, who possessed the Etheric body, which we all possess of the ancient wise Centaur Chiron once more begins to awaken the ancient knowledge of Physiology, Anatomy and the resurrected sciences of the hidden etheric body, the Second Being in us.

The most intense and intensive event was a shift in Education and Spiritual Insight that was won for humanity through the War in Heaven. Michael’s battle has won, for us, during this current period the remarkable resurrection of the vision, from the previous Michael Age that shone from the Greek period,  and renewed and resurrected shines forth once more from 1879 to 2234. (CLICK LINK) Vast insights into education and the human being that have been hidden since long before Homer and long before Greece had lost it’s spiritual heritage, have begun to come back to us in mighty flashes of insight. Rare moments arise in our education today when we can regain and recapture vivid and profound experiences that were once understood by humanity. This is such a moment.

“Since the last third of the nineteenth century, means and ways were given whereby that which occult schools have kept back (in an unjustified way, in many cases) becomes obsolete. This is connected with the event that I mentioned to you — the event which took place in the autumn of 1879. Now we can only lift the outer veil of this mystery; but even this outer veil is one of the most important pieces of knowledge concerning man.”

The ancient Greek was much closer to the vivid Anatomy and Imagination of the Living Anatomical laws and cosmic forces which they knew were deeply imprinted into the  heroes, Hercules,Peleus, Jason, Achilles. Every Greek child was filled with the living Etheric Pictures of actual Beings that had taught, inspired and revealed themselves through mighty heroic deeds and great Athletic skills.  And those skills were part of the ancient Greek Gymnastics, which every Greek child learned as the foundation of human-hood and the keys that invoked the inspiration of the gods themselves, that they might come alive and shine through our human form.

Aggies anatomy and physiology of the Science of Chiron the Centaur

Johnny Manziel in the 2012 football season at Texas A&M offered the opportunity to lift the veil, and reopen an ancient pathway to The Science of the AGE OF CHIRON. The ancient Greeks in the Age of Chiron couched the highest Anatomical and Physiological mysteries of the human being, in educational stories about the gods and the ancient Greek Heroes. Johnny Manziel offered an opportunity to restore the ancient science of the Etheric body of the human being, the Centaur, into current 21st century insights.

From the Texas A&M football season of 2012 A.D. a vivid glint of light shot through, like a mirror that catches a glance of sunlight, it glinted across space and time to our hearts and minds. It was a sharp spiritual light, that reflected off the bright, shimmering Etheric Body of Johnny Manziel just at the moment when we all saw something brilliant flash before our gazes.

It was magnificent, effervescent and astonishing.The glint reflected it’s powerful sheen across centuries of time, back to the Age of Chiron. For an instant the most ancient wonder from the Age of Chiron, that had burned so brightly before 2012 B.C.  – flashed for an instant through Johnny Manziel’s etheric body in 2012 A.D.   (The lens of spiritual vision and history CLICK LINK)  Ancient Greek sciences, long before Homer, knew of the operative science of Anatomy and Physiology that included the mighty Cosmic Reality of The Phantom Horse, the Apollonian sun-bright mystery of the merging of our own Etheric Centaur with the Divine science of our pulse and and our lungs.

Is it possible for such a spiritual flash to light across the centuries? Well 2012 was a unique year. However I have repeated many times that we had to be in the right place at the right moment to catch such a glint inwardly. Even to the point of having our own Etheric body, our own thought life be receptive enough to catch the shining reflection that shot across centuries of Time, lit by Apollo and the Sun-Bright forces of the Logos. In other words, it isn’t merely external sights, astronomical external events, but vivid spiritual history itself that can suddenly light up within any receptive human etheric body.

We all saw it and there was a powerful Sun Event that did arise for all of us in the year 2012. (CLICK LINK)  But we had to be in the right condition and the right sensitivity to be able to apprehend it. The inner phenomena of Johnny Manziel, his own Etheric Brightness, had opened a brief window into the ancient shining revelation of Chiron, The Age of Chiron and the ancient Science of the Centaur that had been lost and obscured since Blind Homer had last recorded it. It reappeared for a brief instant, shining with spiritual brightness that is reserved only for profound inner spiritual events, it shone through the bright glint of Johnny Manziel’s etheric body. And that, that is what we hunger for in any given season and in any given sport, to be able to literally celebrate, witness and apprehend a clairvoyant moment exactly the way the Greeks had experienced it and under the brilliant illumination of SEEING what the Blind Bard and seer Homer could vividly and inwardly see.

The ancient Greeks couched their sciences in mythic tales. But because of the different soul condition of the ancient Greeks these lost fables and tales, and fragments were once a magnificent public education system that included both the Divine Spiritual forces and the physical, material miracle of the manifestation of heroes, warriors and Athletes.

The ancient Greek understood, through Chiron, the invisible teacher of the Etheric body, what the purpose, health and Athletic ability meant to the physical and to the spiritual laws of the universe. Each Greek child, adult and student when they went to sleep at night, the living force of these myths came alive. And that cohesive, magnificent, poetic and brilliant structure was the foundation of Western Civilization long before decadent Rome came on the scene.

The Horse has the gestation cycle of the Earth herself. So the Horse represents the Lungs, and pulse of the Earth for the Horse carries the 365 day cycle of gestation. The Earth and the Horse are one. But it is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the unconscious mathematical system anchored in our lungs and pulse, matches in mighty, miniature form, the entire pulse of the Cosmic System we are embedded in. Our lungs and our hearts carry Apollo’s laws. We are deeply imprinted with the Divine System that we carry in our Physiology and our Anatomy. These imprinted, etheric laws, are the literal rules of the Logos and no human being incarnates without them. We as humanity, with our Anatomy are embedded and imprinted, indeed each of us carries in our rhythms of heart and lung a mighty cosmic being that is epitomized in the solid and magnificent, visible Horse.

Our cowboy traditions in the West are certainly anchored in something vast, mystical and magnificent but they come from an ancient science that we would prefer to remain dormant and un-examined. We have had no desire to understand the Horse as a living Etheric/Physical Earth creature that carries the full Zen of a Cosmic Runner’s High and lives as Lung, hoof and pounding pulse of the mission of Earth Herself. We treasure the Kentucky Derby and Horse rearing, breeding, breaking, busting, herding and horse races, but the solid science that places our pulse and our heart-beats into sync with the laws of the cosmos, with the laws once worshiped as Apollo or Apollonian, Logos and cosmic laws, we dismiss. So we take the frill and fable of the West but have rejected the Anatomy, Physiology and Science of the Age of Chiron.

The Anatomy and Physiology of Apollo, music, math and all the laws of the Logos reveal an invisible structural body, known as the Etheric Body, which is given to each of us as preparation for our incarnations on the Earth. The science of the Age of Chiron and the science of the Risen Etheric Christ, both reveal a powerful Sun Structured Etheric Body, the Logos of Anatomy and Physiology which is held together by our etheric body. At issue is this, is it tenable that the Risen Etheric Body of the Christ Being is capable of shining with such Sun Bright Force that we could see it inwardly, reflected off our own etheric bodies?  The Greeks saw it and Homer saw it, only they called it Apollo, but St. Paul called it the Risen Etheric Christ which blinded St. Paul in the same manner that Blind Homer could see. Is there such a powerful inner light?

Our lymphatic system is the physical representation of our etheric body; our nervous system is the physical representation of our astral body; and our blood system and all of the secrets in our blood and our hearts (Study of the Human Heart Click Link) are the physical representation of the I AM, the blood identity field of the immortal human being. All that we study are the Physical body parts, but we refuse to see the cosmic forces and the invisible powers that are woven into our Physical forms.

Which brings us to the advanced comparative contemplation of the metamorphosis and transformed, trans-positioning of the form of our Brains and the form of our Lungs. We have a SECOND BEING within us, the lawful and potent rhythmic system, Lung and Pulse and drives and instincts, that appear sometimes transfigured in Athletes, Jason, Hercules, Achilles, Theseus, Peleus were all students of Chiron.

Our entire human etheric body, the un-mentioned and un-acknowledged source of the wisdom of our Etheric bodies were all gathered together, when the foundation for the striving of Western Civilization was planted deeply into the cosmic structure of every human Etheric body on the planet. We know this powerful etheric body illuminated the inner sight of Homer the blind poet. We also know that this powerful etheric body flashed into instant revelation in St. Paul. In fact we know very well that the inner illumination was so bright, that it temporarily overcame the external apparatus of vision in St. Paul. It is firmly established that our Etheric Body, the ancient Centaur, after all St. Paul was knocked off his horse by the shock of the inner light that illuminated him, even the horse felt it, our own Divine Etheric bodies are the doorways to the inner vision of the Risen Etheric Christ Being.

The Foundation of our Western Civilization and the foundation of each of our Etheric Structural Systems were, in every detail, celebrated at the wedding of heaven and earth between Thetis and Peleus at the great cave of Chiron, where all the Divine Beings attended. The Divine Beings, the Gods, attended by invitation from Chiron, to the wedding of the deepest structural mysteries of the Etheric Bodies of all and every single member of humanity.

The entire structure, striving and force of Western Civilization and source for the inspiration of our Sports Heroes, Warriors, Heisman trophy winners, everything, from Homer and the Trojan War to ancient Greece and the decadent offshoot of Rome Herself all the way up to Johnny Manziel’s etheric body, all of these powerful cosmic impulses of how Reincarnation and Karma work (CLICK LINK), were all met at the wedding of Thetis and Peleus. Here our flaws, our jealousies, our gifts, our immense skills our divine Pythagorean wisdom, the Logos and the laws of the planets were all bound-up and woven together in the wisdom and functioning of the Second Being we have in us, the Phantom Horse.

“According to classical mythology, the wedding of Thetis and Peleus was celebrated on Mount Pelion outside the cave of Chiron and attended by the deities: there they celebrated the marriage with feasting. Apollo played the lyre and the Muses sang, Pindar claimed. At the wedding Chiron gave Peleus an ashen spear that had been polished by Athene and had a blade forged by Hephaestus, and Poseidon gave him the immortal horses,Balius and Xanthus  (our immortal human lungs). Eris , the goddess of discord, had not been invited, however. In spite, she threw a golden apple into the midst of the goddesses that was to be awarded only “to the fairest.”Aggies Marriage of Etheric Body gifts Peleus and Thetis Peter Paul Rubens

Our human Etheric Bodies Woven with Divine Forces, Hosted by Chiron, descends from the Spiritual World with every unique gift offered by the Gods themselves

Colluthus, Rape of Helen 14 ff (trans. Mair) (Greek poetry C5th to 6th A.D.) :

“Among the high-peaked hills of the Haimonians, the marriage song of Peleus [and Thetis] was being sung while, at the bidding of Zeus, Ganymede poured the wine. And all the race of gods hasted to do honour to the white-armed bride [Thetis], own sister of Amphitrite:

Zeus from Olympos and Poseidon from the sea. Out of the land of Melisseus, from fragrant Helikon,

Apollon came leading the clear-voiced choir of the Mousai. On either side, fluttering with golden locks, the unshorn cluster of his hair was buffeted by the west wind. And after him followed Hera, sister of Zeus; nor did the queen of harmony herself, even Aphrodite, loiter in coming to the groves of the Kentauros [Kheiron]. Came also Peitho (Persuasion), having fashioned a bridal wreath, carrying the quiver of archer Eros. And Athene put off her mighty helmet from her brow and followed to the marriage, albeit of marriage she was untaught. Nor did Leto’s daughter Artemis, sister of Apollon, disdain to come, goddess of the wilds though she was. And iron Ares, even as, helmetless nor lifting warlike spear, he comes into the house of Hephaistos, in such wise without breastplate and without whetted sword danced smilingly.

But Eris (Strife) did Kheiron leave unhonoured: Kheiron did not regard her and Peleus heeded her not . . .
And Eris (Strife) overcome by the pangs of angry jealousy, Aggies making of the etheric bodywandered in search of a way to disturb the banquet of the gods . . .
And now she bethought her of the golden apples of the Hesperides. Thence Eris took the fruit that should be the harbinger of war, even the apple, and devised the scheme of signal woes.

Whirling her arm she hurled into the banquet the primal seed of turmoil and disturbed the choir of goddesses. Hera, glorying to be the spouse and to share the bed of Zeus, rose up amazed, and would fain have seized it. And Kypris [Aphrodite], as being more excellent than all, desired to have the apple, for that it is the treasure of the Erotes (Loves). But Hera would not give it up and Athena would not yield.”

Wisdom, Power and Beauty – Athena-Hera and Aphrodite, and in our human system, our three systems of Thinking-Willing and Feeling, our profound education into Cosmic Science, Political Power and Artistic beauty all clashed together into what Homer clearly described in the Iliad and the Odyssey, as the tale of the Trojan War, all centered around a Horse.  A Horse.

Aggies Placebo false Phantom HorseThe Trojan Horse contrasted with Chiron and our real Phantom Horse, loaded with all the gifts of our human Etheric bodies, was brilliantly captured by the Symbol of a Wooden Horse. The fake, phony materialistic, mechanical,  rusted out machine worship, that dishonors our Etheric bodies, worshiped by one and all on the phony altar, bowing before an empty anatomy science is what we are taught. (Heart studies are seriously wrong LINK)   We are taught that the Heart is a pump. (Click Link)

We are taught incomplete nonsense because we dare not attempt to understand Reincarnation and Karma and how our Living Etheric Bodies are loaded with Divine forces. We dare not admit to ourselves that our materialistic science has long since replaced the Science of Chiron.  We dare not consider the treachery of our own educational Wooden Horse, our placebo, replication, we are forced to worship, against the model of our actual Living and Divine Etheric systems. St. Paul had his entire Etheric Body flash into vivid illumination, so bright it shone that he was unable to see for three days. Homer’s strong etheric body was able to see vividly all the ancient treasures that the gods had built into our Etheric Bodies. Christ blew the doors off the tomb, from the potent reconstruction of His Invisible Etheric body, so that He walked away from the tomb and could reconstruct Himself  at will, from his Risen Etheric Body, so that people could touch Him.

These three systems woven into our Etheric Bodies are part of the cosmic system we understand as Nerves and Sense system; Metabolic System; and Rhythmic system; woven together in the threefold symmetry of the very pissed off Divine Beings of Athena, Hera and Aphrodite. All of the details of our Etheric Divine system were wed and woven together and hosted by the wedding of Peleus and Thetis in the Cave of Chiron the Centaur.

The slippery, liquid shape shifter, elastic mirroring capacity of the Etheric Body IS THETIS. That defines Thetis. A potent, elastic, mirroring shape metamorphosing, impossible to catch, is the raw ingredient of the Spiritual quality of our Etheric forces. It had to be anchored down to the physical body type of the hero Peleus who was also mentored by Chiron.

Now this profound Etheric Body that resulted in the birth of Achilles reveals a stupendous set of insights. Firstly, the marriage of Thetis and Peleus reveal a gathering of Divine Beings who imprint into the Etheric substance the Prototype of every human Etheric body. Secondly, Achilles, who carries the Spear that Chiron had given Peleus, that was polished by Athena, the representative of the Divine THOUGHT forces, and was fashioned by the magic craftsmanship of Hephaestus, reappears powerfully through history. We will cover this topic at the very end. The Spear of Destiny is one of the mighty tools that follow down throughout human development.

Thirdly, that force that everyone receives in our newly minted Etheric Bodies as we approach a NEW INCARNATION, is dynamically  riddled with the karma that we each carry with us into our incarnations. It is individually stamped by the Stars that we carry and bring with us into incarnation (SEE LINK). Therefore all of the gods, realize, as a prototype, what the destiny of Achilles will be. This is not fate for us, but rather we carry in our Etheric Bodies the gift of our individual Destinies as the full force of our individual Etheric Bodies.

Now the FOURTH FACTOR, is the most astonishing. The entire shape shifting forces of the mobile, elastic Etheric Body of a Divine Being, the Christ, chooses to enter humanity and enter the model of the highest developed Etheric Body and Astral Body ever transformed, in the Jesus destiny (CLICK LINK). Christ is born for the Earth and the Etheric Life of Earth with the potent and Divinely impregnated Etheric Sun Forces that only Christ could offer humanity. Christ than reveals Himself, after His earthly body has been obliterated, as the Risen Shape Shifting Cosmic Being who now stands as the Lord of Karma. We have to only recall that Christ appeared in several different solid forms, Road to Emmaus; on the Shore with Peter and John; Before Mary Magdalene; Before Thomas. Thomas touching the solid manifestation of the Risen Etheric ChristChrist represents the absolute completion of everything that the Ancient Greeks understood as Chiron and the Marriage of Thetis and Peleus. The Risen Etheric Christ in our current reality is a very, very big deal. This was the greatest, heroic and Athletic feat ever accomplished in the history of humanity.

And Fifth, we have to marvel at the profound Sciences, couched in old Greek Wisdom, that Initiates and Seers were able to so deeply penetrate, down into the mysteries of Human Anatomy and the Science of the Etheric, that the science of  the Age of Chiron, handed down to posterity the super-charged invincible mystery of how the elastic shape-shifter, mothering and watery forces of the Lymphatic system of our Etheric Bodies, THETIS, were offered to the mighty Apollonian Logos of Love, the Christ. We have to marvel at an ancient system of thinking that cosmically dwarfs our current meager pedestrian fumblings with the study of human anatomy.

The resurrection of the Science of Chiron and the Wedding of Peleus and Thetis, which was the celebration of the making of the gift of our cosmic Etheric Bodies, has resurrected in the Science of Reincarnation and how our individual Etheric Karmic forces are woven into our Virgin Etheric Bodies when ever we prepare ourselves to Reincarnate. (Etheric Body Science and Reincarnation, CLICK LINK)

Now that means that in our Anatomy studies where we discuss the transposition of different systems in our anatomy, we understand, as an example, the position in our Anatomy of our Fallopian and Eustachian systems. I cover the Anatomical secrets of the Fallopian and Eustachian systems and how they appear in the upper and lower physiology of females and males in (this link). The mirroring and division of the etheric models of our Etheric Bodies, female and male, reveal something profound again that is completely unknown to the study of  Anatomy.

Opposite to the Centaur in the Stars, and again I mean directly opposite in the stars, is Gemini. Gemini and the Etheric body we carry as the Centaur are deeply connected. Gemini, exactly on the opposite side of the zodiac as the Centaur or Sagittarius doesn’t mean squat to us.  But it is a primary consideration in the function of our understanding the mirroring and polarity forces operative in human Anatomy. The fact that every human being is built on the Template of the Zodiac and is woven and tightly knit with the forces of Zodiac in our rib-cage, our lungs, our eyes, our ears, our two magnificent arms and legs that help define the dynamic perfection of some of our most treasured Athletes, we remain clueless as to where these design fields and forces have come from.

“In the same way, our ego is diffused in the blood that flows throughout our two lungs, two sides of our brain, two kidneys, two ovaries/testicles and all other “twoness” that have been captured in a living process by Gemini. The space within our ribs and skin is an inner-thought world where the sounds and tones of speech are not merely audible to us, but freely resound as an inner word, portending the possibility of moral development coming to realization in new “seed”. (Anatomical secrets see link)

The great transposition and transformation of our Brain System and our Lung System brings us into the secrets of the Etheric Body and the Science that once existed in The Age of Chiron. The transformation of all the forces that our Etheric life takes, in fact, the work of how each human etheric body is transformed in the breathing out – as we enter into incarnation towards the Earth and the breathing in process – as we re-enter the Cosmic System that rules in the vital Precession of the Equinoxes, imprints into the Law of our Lungs, the Pulse of our Hearts, and the Capacity of our Brains, two distinct beings.
Aggies Anatomy lungs Chiron brain, heart as future pineal and Human brain twin organsChiron and our Human consciousness.

Our lungs and heart as a Rhythmic System represent a future brain. ( Current validation click link) The Heart would develop the forces that would appear side by side in the future as our Pineal gland in our Brain, nerve and human sense system. In other words from one incarnation to another, the advance of our Hearts development, our Lungs and Pulse transform and metamorphose into our Brain and Pineal glands. The two halves of our brain structure reflect the immortal wisdom of our lungs. The two horses, Balius and Xanthus, metamorphose into the breathing in and out of Percepts and Concepts in the two halves of our brain. The intuitions we develop from our hearts become higher organs of perception in our future incarnations.

We carry with us TWO BEINGS. The cosmic forces of Chiron and our Etheric Bodies and our Human Brain and Sense system. They transform themselves in tandem between one incarnation and the next. The light that once shone in our hearts is transformed to the intuitive light that illuminates our pineal glands. Our ability to see connections and unravel the hidden value of invisible concepts and both visible and invisible percepts and our most intimate I AM cognitive thinking arises only from our metamorphosed heart and lungs. (SEE LINK FOR FURTHER STUDY).

The theory of the cosmic horse rules in the very roots of the WORD, Equine Equinox Experience.Yet it is the very laws of the stars, the formal Apollonian and Logos rhythm of our Sun through the heavens that trigger the Anatomical miracles, polarities, harmonies and literal transformation and metamorphosis of our Lungs and our Brains that are unfortunately lost to our modern materialistic science.

Therefore, by merely burying ourselves in the glitz, glitter and fanfare of ESPN, we cover our vision under an avalanche of statistical impediments, accouterments, palaver and rigmarole so that there is no possible way to see the Shining Spirit behind our most cherished Athletic Myths and legends. We have lost the ancient science of Chiron and we have lost the vision of the Etheric Second Human Being that paces with us, all through our human destiny on Earth. We not only lose the gifts of Homer, but we also inhibit the gifts of St. Paul, we lose the Divine in the Human Being and we fail to see the spirit behind our most cherished athletes.

“…that part of human nature that can perceive reality and has not attained the required maturity in one incarnation, but must be weakened in order to become man in the next incarnation. The centaur, of whom I spoke to you, who is to be found beneath the threshold of consciousness, would be able to perceive truth and reality, but the centaur cannot as yet perceive.

What we perceive is not a reality! But man can let himself be determined by that part of his being which is no longer, or is not yet, a centaur; then his actions will be those of a free being. The secret of our freedom is intimately connected with the taming of our centaur-nature. This centaur-nature is contained in us in such a way that it is chained and fettered, so that we may not perceive the reality of the centaur, but only the Maya.”

Prometheus, Chiron, St. Paul and The Etheric Christ

Having just fallen off his rearing horse, Saint Paul lies prostrate on the ground. His closed eyes hint at the blindness that struck him the moment that the Risen Etheric Christ appeared.

Aggies the horse and St. Paul

Saul is not reclining, as in other paintings on the subject, but utterly prostrate, shattered, humbled to the very ground, all his strength gone, his sword thrown down. Struck blind, he needed to undergo the death of the senses in order to see the new supernatural light.

And our problem is Chiron and how the most intense prophet of Chrisitanity was riding a Horse. The moment Chiron had waited untold Centuries for, where Horse and Rider and the Second Being in us were jolted into the Conscious Revelation of the Etheric Body, had arrived. The Horse and the Rider, the conscious human being, were both catapulted into the central mystery of the Etheric Vision of the Risen Etheric Christ.Aggies the mystical phantom horse of St. Paul  s. bernardelli

It must have been a special moment for the Horse, for it certainly was one of the most powerful historical moments where the Age of Chiron crashed into the Greek thinking of Paul. And in that moment a magnificent riddle was born. But this riddle of the Ancient Science of Chiron and the Greeks, points to who St. Paul has recently been. But I may not yet speak of that riddle.

Rather we are required to dwell on the bright inward illumination that shattered Saul into Paul. That an inner Etheric Light, a Consciousness that spoke in that Light, the literal Logos who had crafted the Etheric Body of Humanity, the Etheric body of Horses so that the Horse Etheric matched the Earth Etheric body. The Sun Logos that had crafted the Etheric body of the animals, the etheric life of all the plants and had even given the crystals and precious stones their unique character and receptivity to Light. This was the Light and Love of the world that is sensible and visible in the Etheric Body of humanity. That was the good news.

Prometheus, like Amfortas and Telephus, had a wound that would not heal. As punishment for Prometheus giving fire to man, Zeus had him chained up in the Caucasian mountains. Every day, an eagle came to Prometheus and bit him in the liver, which grew again every night. In his Prometheus trilogy, of which only Prometheus Bound has survived, Aeschylus developed him into the creator and saviour of mankind. Although he gave them fire, Prometheus took away their knowledge of the future. In the next part of the trilogy, Prometheus Unbound, Zeus allowed Prometheus to be freed. Heracles shot the eagle and freed the titan from his chains.

Every human being, bar none, is a wounded hero. Prometheus is an immortal and we as humanity are immortal, in the fact that we reincarnate through time and we carry our immortal individualities through the Spiritual World, through laws of the stars, and back into matter, the womb and the compressed forces of our New Virgin Etheric Bodies, with us.(Reincarnation Laws Click Link) We are wounded and we carry around with us the forces of death.

Rudolf Steiner

“Anyone who approaches the Mysteries to-day must. feel that he is confronting himself in such a way that he will strive after the virtues of Parsifal, while knowing that — because of the modern conditions already described and because he is a man of modern times — he is in fact someone else also, the wounded Amfortas. A man of our time carries within him this double nature — aspiring Parsifal, wounded Amfortas. That is what his self-knowledge must lead him to feel. Then from this recognition will flow the forces which out of duality must make a unity, and so should bring man a little further on in the course of world-evolution. In our Intellectual Soul, in the depths of our inner life, there must be a meeting between Amfortas, wounded in body and soul, and Parsifal, whose task is to cultivate the Consciousness Soul. And it is entirely true to say that in order to gain freedom for himself, a man must go through the “wounding” of Amfortas and become acquainted with the Amfortas within himself, so that he may also come to know Parsifal.”

Well not only the forces of death but seduction. All of us carry a disintegrating shadow that eats away at our earthly physical bodies. The character of the wounded King or wounded Queen, the character of Anfortas or sometimes spelled Amfortas, the Fisher King, is one of the most mystical parts of the Parsifal saga. It hinges the entire Mystery of the Holy Grail on the recovery of the Spear. So this Spear or Lance is a truly significant part of the puzzle of Chiron and the marriage of Thetis and Peleus. The Spear holds one of the deepest secrets of our etheric bodies. (click link)

“Hercules eventually secured a divine bargain in which Chiron’s immortality was forfeit to secure the liberation of Prometheus, who was more-or-less Chiron’s cousin, thereby granting Chiron his wish to die and consigning his spirit to the underworld. Yet even that was not to last as his universal esteem led his half-brother Zeus to intervene one last time by raising him to the celestial realm in the form of the constellation Sagittarius (sagitta is Latin for “arrow”), thereby restoring to him an immortality of sorts. In this way Chiron ultimately found his cure beyond death and, in both myth and astrology, he lies as a bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds.

Amfortas, the sick, eternally dying, agonizing death and the immortality, and pain of immortality in our mortal frames, is exactly what Prometheus and Chiron so agonizingly experienced. It is exactly what the Grail King Amfortas suffered by being in constant proximity to the immortality forces of the Holy Grail.

So the wounded Queen or the wounded King is our eternal riddle. We may review that eternal riddle, that applies to everyone in the flesh here (CLICK LINK). The solution to that riddle has to do with our Etheric Bodies, our Larynx, and our sexuality. In all the polarities of the study of anatomy and our physiology sciences, our Speech forces, the HUMAN and COSMIC WORD, play a key role in the Spear and the HOLY LANCE OF LOVE.

But as we shall soon see, the most important, undiscovered, unexplored, advanced study of our etheric body and the Etheric Body of the Risen Etheric Christ has exactly to do with the polarity of the Carbon Dioxide inhalation of plants and the Oxygen exhalation of the etheric world of vegetation. This is a polarity, like the many we have studied, that is without a doubt one of the most advanced revelations of humanity.

“Plants are living things and their metabolism constantly ‘burns’ food using Oxygen and producing CO2, they do this all the time, day and night. However, during the day plant is bombarded by photons (i.e. light). The light allows the plant to photosynthesize, turning CO2 and water into Hydrocarbons for food and releasing Oxygen. The amount of Oxygen produced is surplus to its metabolic requirements and is therefore released into the atmosphere. At night photosynthesis closes down because there is no light so the plant consumes oxygen and releases CO2 like animals.”

We have studied the human lung, the breathing of the Earth, the Horse as a magnificent representative of the Earth Herself. We have studied the rhythms of our pulse, our heart beats and our lungs and how meshed and merged we are to the entire cosmic system in each of our breaths. Now we find that the world of vegetation and plant life also breaths, the Earth Herself, in all her etheric vegetation and the laws of breathing does something, that in the plant is always virginal and without sexuality.

So in effect the entire vegetation of the Earth is like a giant breathing horse. And the plant world for the moment gives humanity oxygen and we give the plants carbon dioxide or CO2. This is a commonplace mystery that has immense, stupendous, ramifications. For it leads us into the most purified regions of the Etheric Body of the Risen Etheric Christ, as a functional force that could reproduce itself without Sex.

The word parthenogenesis comes from the Greek παρθένος, parthenos, meaning “virgin“. Parthenogenesis arises as a perfected study, in the Etheric Body, of the Risen Etheric Christ Being. It is one thing to be crucified and a whole other stage of human development where from the power of our etheric bodies, (female for physical males; and male etheric bodies for physical females) we gain such purity and strength that we overcome death, that exists in our physical bodies. Our anima and animus, our etheric bodies become freed of sexual differences and sexual confusion.

Throwing the Spear, throwing a football or baseball, is an intermediary FORCE of dynamics which literally calls forth cosmic forces into our Etheric Bodies. Intermediary between what and what? Between our Speech forces, our Larynx and our reproductive or sexual forces. In most Sports we are glued unconsciously to the spectator sport of  peripheral participation, visual celebration, of human beings alchemizing before our eyes, Sexuality into Speech, WORD and Spiritual forces. These are the laws of polarity and the laws of the construction of our Etheric Bodies that open the gateways to the secrets of HUMAN SPEECH. Unconscious observation of Sports is our own Trojan Horse, our own religious substitute for failing to make the effort to consciously comprehend, IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD.

“When a boy reaches puberty, his body begins making lots of testosterone. The testosterone causes his larynx to grow and his vocal cords to get longer and thicker. Vocal cords are thin muscles that stretch across the larynx like rubber bands.

What Makes a Voice?

“Before you reach puberty, your larynx is pretty small and your vocal cords are kind of small and thin. That’s why your voice is higher than an adult’s. As you go through puberty, the larynx gets bigger and the vocal cords lengthen and thicken, so your voice gets deeper. As your body adjusts to this changing equipment, your voice may “crack” or “break.” But this process lasts only a few months. Once the larynx is finished growing, your voice won’t make those unpredictable, funny noises anymore.

What About Eve’s Apple?

“Not only do older guys and men sound different from boys, but you can also see the difference in their necks. When the larynx grows bigger, it tilts to a different angle and part of it sticks out inside the neck. You can see it at the front of the throat. This is known as the Adam’s apple.

“For girls, the larynx also grows bigger but not as much as in boys, so you can’t see it through a girl’s skin. There is no “Eve’s apple” in a woman’s neck.”

“At the wedding Chiron gave Peleus an ashen spear that had been polished by Athene and had a blade forged by Hepphaestus”

In 1849 Wagner sketched his own drama on the subject of Achilles (WWV 81). It was probably while reading about this hero of the Trojan War, that Wagner encountered the story of Achilles and Telephus (Τελεϕος).

Achilles and Telephus

Telephus, son of Heracles and Auge, was a king in Asia Minor. After nearly making the same mistake as Oedipus, of marrying his own mother, Telephus married a daughter of King Priam. As an ally of the Trojans, his kingdom was attacked by the Greeks (or Achaeans) and in the fighting, Telephus was wounded in the thigh by the spear of Achilles. After the Greeks had withdrawn, Telephus’ wound would not heal.

The Greeks had no leader who could show them the way to Troy. But Telephus, because his wound was unhealed, and [the oracle of] Apollo had told him that he would be cured when the one who wounded him should turn physician, came from Mysia to Argos, clad in rags, and begged the help of Achilles, promising to show the course to steer for Troy. So Achilles healed him by scraping off the rust of his Pelian spear. Accordingly, on being healed, Telephus showed the course to steer, and the accuracy of his information was confirmed by Calchas by means of his own art of divination.

Frazer notes that the spear was the famous one which Chiron the Centaur had bestowed on Peleus, the father of Achilles. The shaft was cut from an ash-tree on Mount Pelion, and none of the Greeks at Troy, except Achilles, could wield it. The healing of Telephus’s wound by Achilles was the subject of a play by Sophocles, called The Assembly of the Achaeans, and one by Euripides called Telephus. Aristophanes ridiculed the rags and tatters in which Telephus appeared on the stage in Euripides’s play. The cure of a wound by an application to it of rust from the weapon which inflicted the hurt is not to be explained, as Pliny supposed, by any medicinal property inherent in rust as such, else the rust from any weapon would serve the purpose. It is clearly a folklore remedy based on the principle of sympathetic magic.

It is almost certainly the myth of Achilles and Telephus to which Goethe refers in his poem Torquato Tasso:

“Someday perhaps, the inner light will shine forth from us, and then we’ll need no other light.” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (Aug. 28th, 1749 – Mar. 22th, 1832)

Rudolf Steiner

“Behold the flower chalice which receives the ray of the sun, the sun calls forth the pure productive forces which slumber in the plant and hence the sun’s ray was called the “holy lance of love.” Look now at man; he stands higher than the plant, he has the same organs within him, but all that the plant harbors in itself, perfectly pure and chaste, is in him steeped in lust and impure desire. The future of human evolution consists in this: man will again be chaste and pure, and speak forth his likeness into the world through another organ which will be the transformed organ of generation. Chaste and pure without desire, without passion, man’s generative organ will be; and as the calyx of the blossom turns upward to the holy love lance, it will turn to the spiritual ray of wisdom, and fructified by this will bring forth its own image. This organ will be the larynx.”

Our Etheric bodies are destined to become stronger and stronger with an inner purity and light that shall reverse or transmute the dominating power of our physical bodies, which carry the seed of death within them. Prometheus suffered from this seed of death, Chiron suffered from it and Christ, the Solar Word, penetrated so deeply into the human Etheric Body, that Christ could reproduce Himself and regained for humanity the absolute purity of conscious parthenogenesis. Parthenogenesis comes from the Greek παρθένος, parthenos, meaning “virgin“. Parthenogenesis arises as a perfected study, in the Etheric Body, of the Risen Etheric Christ Being.

So our puberty and our change of voice, centers around the organ of our Larynx. Our reproductive organs are a polarity to our Speech organs. Our genitals and our sexuality are going to shift, gradually and slowly. The massive confused powers of sexuality that dominate our Anima and Animus,  which is to say, every Etheric Body, everyone has the opposite Etheric body as that of our Physical, sexual identities. Every Etheric Body anima and animus carry the complete opposite image we see in the mirror.

How do we explain the origin, the root cause of stronger and weaker etheric forces in each of our individual structures?  Well we do know how to explain the reality better than any psychologist, but since we are referring to Prometheus, who had a hand in crafting our Etheric body systems, which is carried in our individual karma, sexual identity or confusion is dominated by the strengths and weaknesses in our Etheric selves.

Aesop, Fables 517 (from Phaedrus 4.16) :
“Someone asked Aesop why lesbians and effeminates had been created, and old Aesop explained, ‘The answer lies once again with Prometheus, the original creator of our common clay. All day long, Prometheus had been separately shaping those natural members which modesty conceals beneath our clothes, and when he was about to apply these private parts to the appropriate bodies Liber [Dionysos] unexpectedly invited him to dinner. Prometheus came home late, unsteady on his feet and with a good deal of heavenly nectar flowing through his veins. With his wits half asleep in a drunken haze he stuck the female genitalia on male bodies and male members on the ladies.”

When we finally work through the dis-harmonies in our Etheric identity, we come to the realization that each person is both a complete, FEMALE and MALE, a complete I AM.  The clarity, purity and harmony of INNER and OUTER, of hidden etheric cosmic system and visible physical sexual identity brings us to sister and brotherhood.

Each human spirit will find an inviolable respect for each unique individual I AM. It will be hundreds of years before we arrive at this Virgin parthenogenetic harmony between our etheric and physical selves. Parthenogenesis defines the advanced ability of Christ to manifest from the strength of his Etheric Body, into female or male forms. And this is confirmed in the science of the Risen Etheric Christ by the XX and XY, female/male chromsome structure in males. Our parthenogenetic model of a VIRGIN, transformed and Holy Force of Reproduction, shall slowly gain power and strength the more our Etheric Bodies learn to penetrate beyond death’s door and unlock the higher anatomy and physiology sciences of the Risen Etheric Christ.

In our Larynx and Speech, our WORD and Eurythmy forces, we have the greatest affirmation ever presented of the reality of the John Gospel.  In this study, on the Aggies, Johnny Manziel and Chiron we have penetrated into only one aspect of one particular dominating Consonant. K Sagitarius Consonant Eurythmy  ”   K  ”      This Consonant and all of our consonants in every language, carry, through our Larynx and the Consonants we utter, the seed of the entire Zodiac. Nesting in our Larynx is the entire Zodiacal Seed which we have inherited as part of our anatomy and etheric body system.  As a graduate of the Goetheanum in Switzerland I had the privilege of studying some of the secrets connected with the future forces that lay in Speech. I have done intense etheric linguistic studies into the structure of language. You may find some of my studies on Language and Speech HERE (Click Link).

The consonant that has the KICK of a horse, the cock of a gun, the Kick of a football, that captures in our bodily dynamics the ‘K’ of Kheiron, the star RIGIL KENTAURUS, the force of a cannon; the muscular dexterity and lightening force that existed in the staggering impact of Cassius Clay’s punches, Kick boxing, Karate, King-Kong, crash, crunch, crush, and just before the boom, the invisible dynamic, before the boom, is KA-boom, allows us to look deeply into the one place in the zodiac of Speech Sounds and Eurythmy, where we find the ancient force of Chiron.

Ka the earliest study of the Etheric Body

Aggies Egyptian Ka arm, chest, lungs, spear Etheric bodyThe KA was the Egyptian concept of vital essence, that which distinguishes the difference between a living and a dead person, with death occurring when the KA left the body. The Egyptians believed that Khnum created the bodies of children on a “Potter’s wheel” (zodiac) and inserted them into their mothers’ bodies. Depending on the region, Egyptians believed that “Heket” was the creator of each person’s KA, breathing it into them at the instant of their birth as the part of their soul that made them be alive. This resembles the concept of “Spirit”  in other religions.

The Egyptians also believed that the KA was sustained through food and drink. For this reason food and drink offerings were presented to the dead, although it was the kau within the offerings that was consumed, not the physical aspect. The KA was often represented in Egyptian iconography as a second image of the king, leading earlier works to attempt to translate KA as double.

The constellation of Johnny Manziel.

Aggies constellation

Johnny ManzielIn Johnny Manziel, in his 19th year, at the moment when the Angel of every human being celebrates the arrival  of our 19th year on Earth, Johnny’s Angel torched like a mighty Promethean spark. Every Angel makes many attempts, numerous attempts to rouse and awaken us. We generally remain unconscious of these attempts made by our Angels. However the powerful and bright Etheric Light that overshadowed, or illuminated Johnny Manziel from within, lit up, for a bright season, everyone’s inward spiritual eyes.

In this moment, when a human being is NINETEEN and suddenly in the spotlight of the world, just when the gateway to the Angelic World is most brilliant, Johnny Manziel burst forth, and all his etheric forces were vividly illuminated. Every NINETEEN YEARS all our stars line up in such a way that not only do our own Angelic Beings that guide and nurture each of us, become most intimate for us, but at that precise moment Johnny Manziel entered his 19th year.

In 2012, the stars, Manziel’s etheric body, the national spotlight and millions of eyewitnesses observed, or could have observed and in some cases did observe, Chiron, the Centaur and mentor of heroes shining with brilliant etheric illumination through Johnny Football. The Angel Being that helped build the Etheric body of Johnny Manziel, rayed forth with such dexterity, agility and lightness of foot, that the whole western world was amazed at what we saw.

The difference between our unconsciously celebrating our football enthusiasm and our conscious ability to approach the mystery of our own Angels, our own Etheric Body and awakening and becoming conscious of St. Paul, the Phantom Horse, Chiron, our own Centaurs, and the reality of the Risen Etheric Christ Being, is the difference between the fog of unknowing and the shattering truth of awakening. The Angel of Johnny Manziel gave us all a wake up call. It flashed through our big screen t.v.s; our Sports bars; our stadiums; and rippled through the exclusive club of Sports Commentators and surged and flowed through the souls of Athletes everywhere.

Angelic revelations, synchronization of magnificent human and spiritual events will not be repeated in exactly the same way again. Heraclitus said: “You cannot step into the same river twice, for fresh waters are ever flowing in upon you.” That is what makes the St. Paul event so unique or the one time event of the Resurrection, so overwhelming.

It was 2012 and the Angel of Johnny Manziel flared out, if Angels could shout, we certainly all heard the powerful, reverberating shout of a magnificent 19 year old. Aggies Winged CentaurYes, the bright and youthful forces of our Angels will continue to illuminate and shine for most souls during their 19th year and for each and everyone of us, through our thirty-eighth, fifty-seventh, and seventy-sixth year, every 19 years through our entire earthly biographies.

It will be fascinating to watch the future career of Johnny Manziel unfold before our eyes. The Security and Exchange Commission is also the SEC, however for Johnny Manziel the SEC could be classified as the South Equatorial Current of the Stars of the Southern Hemisphere, where the Centaur, Chiron, casts it’s shadow over the SEC, the SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE. Texas A&M itself is located on the rim of the reverse side of the bowl of the stars of the Southern Hemisphere. There is no question that Johnny Manziel brought the Stars of Alpha Centauri, Rigel Kent, one of the brightest stars in the southern constellation of Centaurus into the SEC, SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE. Whether his star and his fame continues to burn so brightly that we rename the constellation Alpha Centauri, JOHNNY FOOTBALL, in honor of his Angel and his mentor Chiron, is, as of this writing, unknown.

The riddle of each of our Etheric Bodies, both female and male, which carries the signature of our immortality in it, is also a riddle of what Carl Jung described as the opposite of our physical sex, our visible sexual identification, Jung rightly observed that we carry an Anima and Animus invisible and powerful Female etheric if we are physical malesAggies female and male anima and animus Centaur etheric form 1 and a Male etheric if we are physical females (CLICK LINK)  .

Prometheus had his liver gnawed upon by an Eagle. However the human liver is an organ of Jupiter because the human liver follows the same renewal of the blood every 12 hours, as the renewal of human spirituality in Jupiter that runs on the orbit of Jupiter around the Sun every 12 years.  I discuss some of the secrets of Jupiter at this link (Click Link).  The resurrection of the science of Jupiter and how the next generations are relearning the mythology of the ancient Greeks appears in entirely new and updated formats such as this – (CLICK LINK).

There’s the Ovidian question: how much of man is animalia, how much of man is human, what makes us—all of us—human.

The horse, then, with its strength and resilience, becomes the perfect symbol for such survival. The title poem approaches this horse/ human comparison most intimately–when the horse and the rider “untwine,” the rider needs to run on its own two feet.

It ain't easy in Texas

“Two legs took my trot.
And I, freed of my horse-self
who lay dead to the greening world,

“ran through the clover. On two legs

ran and ran –”

Vievee Francis – “Horse in the Dark” is largely autobiographical and recounts Francis’ childhood years in Texas. The family moved a great deal, from west to east Texas, but always in isolated rural areas. Her book has the feel of dirt, grit, animals, heat, and toughness. Some of the poems are written in traditional styles, others are brief prose poems while others are modernist. Francis makes frequent reference to classical mythology, especially to Ovid and myths involving human-animal transformation.”

We have unfathomable mysteries all around us. Suppose we played a human being with Super Powers. Now just let this sink into our souls. We don’t let much sink into our souls, but we really should take into account certain things which we rarely do. Christopher Reeve went into cardiac arrest on October 9, 2004. He went into a coma the following day and passed away on October 10, 2004. He had been paralyzed since May, 1995 following an equestrian accident.  He was thrown from his horse and broke his neck.
He spent months of therapy training himself to breathe without the aid of a respirator. Reeve, who was 42 and had enjoyed a prolific screen and stage career, was thrown from his horse and landed on his head during the second of three trial events in an equestrian competition.

The UberMensch is THE SUPERMAN. Super Man and “X-Men” with Super powers came out of Friedrich Nietzsche. The Übermensch (German for “Overman, Overhuman, Above-Human, Superman, Super-human”; is a concept in the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche.

“Man is a rope, tied between beast and overman–a rope over an abyss…What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not an end: what can be loved in man is that he is an overture…”

Nietzsche, with his Übermensch, Clark Kent and SuperMan are staggering concepts. The American version of Nietzsche’s philosophy, is down right cartoonish. The actual destructive force of the Übermensch that was adopted by Nazi Germany was anything but cartoonish.

Immortality and the Superman principal has been worn by George Reeves, who apparently committed suicide and Christopher Reeves who died after being thrown from a HORSE. Immortality and the HorseWhich calls into focus our study of the Pauline Revelation and the Superman, the NEW ADAM that Paul met in his Etheric, Astral and most importantly, met consciously in his I AM, in the being and reality of the Risen Etheric Christ. Prometheus, Chiron, Amfortas (The Fisher King) of Grail legend and our own wounds that go all the way down to insanity, as was the case with Nietzsche, are caused by our flippant arrogance, as we snicker about Paul, Horses, Chiron, Greek myths, and the Etheric Christ. While Nietzsche went insane, his insanity was a form of possession of soul faculties that has become common place today, everywhere.

Silly, naive students in the U.S. have no idea that Nietzsche brought forth such a powerful Anti-Christ attack, that we know, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that something ELSE – OTHER, other than human, was actually writing the works of Nietzsche. We have shown how Prometheus, Chiron, our structural Etheric Body and Thetis reveal the sublime revelation on the Earth of the Resurrection and the Risen Etheric Christ as a fact.  The OTHER-Being, who manifested in directly in Nietzsche’s writings, we know as Ahriman. Ahriman and Ahrimanic possession along with Ahriman authors, liars, and destructive psychopaths, now roam freely everywhere and in every soul on the planet. Ahriman certainly wants a Superman to arise, but not from the legitimate ripening of the moral and etheric forces in humanity.

“The Risen Etheric Christ in our current reality is a very, very big deal. This was the greatest, heroic and Athletic feat ever accomplished in the history of humanity.”

“…the Christ Spirit clothed Himself with an etheric body condensed, one might say, to physical visibility. So the risen Christ was enveloped in an etheric body condensed to physical visibility; and thus He went about and appeared to those to whom He could appear. He was not visible to everyone, because it was actually only a condensed etheric body which the Christ bore after the resurrection;”  (click link)

  1. Dear Bradford,
    Your articles are like slow-opening gifts that take time to open because you bring such quality to your research. I sat for days with your Norse
    Mythology and here now with your new essay, you shared so many
    meanings I never understood existed. I have been unable to locate
    a scholar friend from Athens but now with your offering, I have made it
    a priority to find him. In my opinion, the world needs more scholars to see your work.Thank-you so much!

  2. P.S. Bradford, my friend’s doctorate was in Classics. He also studied with Garth Fowden’s (author of The Egyptian Hermes: A Historical Approach to the Late Pagan Mind) wife. I hope I can find him because I know he would love to see all your work! He went to the University of London and I have no idea if he knew Andrew Welburn who also taught there – Nina

  3. Greatness and the out of the ordinary. You shoot us back in time with the Ancient Greeks to supplement us greatly with what once was us with a Cognition different than nowadays. Let us expand ourselves through collecting and recollecting back ourselves, actualized and missing not what we once had, but now transformed and appropriately up to date in Perception and Conceptual activity, both Mortal and Immortal and moving Forward with the help of the Gods as we should and one day as well we’ll also be! It’s called the 10th Hierarchy; Know Yourself.
    Thank you Bradford!

    1. Danny is Danny Fortier, Although we have never met, he lives in Canada, His poetry, and as a colleague, his work resonates with some of the greatest poets of Spiritual Science. Danny belongs in Albert Steffen’s school of Schöne Wissenschaften, his insights are like those of Christian Morgenstern, Albert Steffen and Adam Bittleston combined.Thank-you.

      1. Thank you Bradford. I am honored to have a special place in your heart along with such dear fellow Poets of the Living. We are who we are and say what we are saying, for He has Risen. Beautifully in Individuality and Personality, we rise and will keep rising as a Brotherly Community accompanied by those who utter and author, inspire and sing for those who have discovered the Symphony of the Living Word, against them no Gates of Hell prevail and furthermore call on everyone, as you do, to recognize ourselves and the Heavens to which we belong and are meant!

  4. A deeply insightful article, full of wisdom and so timely, it gives us an insight into our past, present and forecasts the way forward to the future. Such an article highlights for us the art of looking at the world with interest, in seeing and reading the signs and symbols that are all around and which reveal, if we allow them to work on our souls, a clear picture of the metamorphosis that the human being has been undergoing and will still be undergoing for long times to come. For as our higher selves begin more and more to work consciously from the realm of the spirit above downwards, on the physical body, spiritualising what is animal in Chiron into the ideal human being, we must also learn to discern the attacks of those forces that seek not to uplift the animal nature but to bring the human down by way of gravity, by way of the mineralising process and to hold it fast at the level of the mineralised animal – which will be worse than any animal nature has birthed, for an ego bearing animal is capable of the greatest evil. Nietzsche’s Blonde Beast inspired Nazism, that sees only physical perfection as the end goal of evolution, is evidence of this. Thank you Bradford for this wonderful article!!!

    1. I am just a lowly blogger. Adriana Koulias is a friend and colleague who resides in Australia. She is an amazing researcher, novelist and her books bring the vast School of Spiritual Science to your doorstep.Not only that, but she is young vibrant and steady as a star to steer by.Not since “Barabbas : a dream of the world’s tragedy”, by Marie Corelli, has there been such a profound examination of the Christ Event in her novel THE FIFTH GOSPEL.

  5. Reading this insightful piece was like a journey through the stars to the earth, absorbing great myths as real history and into the heartbeat of football, of all things! I was amazed and delighted. I didn’t even know who Johnny Manziel was. Thanks.

    1. Kendall, as you rightly say, FOOTBALL OF ALL THINGS. Who would uh thunk it? Why should sports and athletics remain a transitory cultural treasure chest or an elephants graveyard – when the spirit and destiny of sports is examinable and comes from an elevated plateau of human spiritual endeavor? With all the fanfare and hoopla it is easy to forget that which flows through our human anatomy and physiology. If we want the Gods to return to inspire our Sports and our Athletes we have to rediscover what we bring to Earth from the Spiritual World when we incarnate. Thank you so much Kendall.

  6. Bradford Riley’s last blog entry entitled “Texas Aggies, Athletes and the Phantom Horse” sure has a strange name. I was certainly puzzled when I found myself trying to understand what an “Aggie” is and how on earth, Johnny Manziel, mighty Chiron the mythological greek super-centaur and the horse could possibly have something with each other. But then- BANG -like Pinky, I was taking the ball in the end zone in a horse-drawn garbage wagon just like in “Horse Feathers”. Garbage ? Yes, cause all the subjects of the occult, hidden truths that underlies our daily life, masterfully and wonderfully treated in these essays – are really dismissed and thrown off by our modern and plentiful civilization; where did the mighty visions of the Greek heroes and legends vanish to today? We could not gather all these vast insights and panoramas presented here, without embracing the crisis of our souls today, the longing after spirit, as Saul fell off his horse on the road to Damascus. Saul from Tarsus, the city where the last Pegasus feather, as the ancient clairvoyance power, fell from the skies. We have to become the man next to our winged horse- the brother of Pegasus – as was Chrysaor once. And here we have the most touching and humanly part of our paths – to become a Chrysaor, the one who have a golden armament, is to have Christ as the gold-sun aura forces of our heart. (Chr – Christos, chrysós) ; but first, from our Gorgon soul to our Golgotha, we have to be “beheaded” that means to have a higher birth. Thank you Bradford for all the subjects and for your inexhaustible and wonderful way to show them!

    1. CHRYSAOR, I had to look that one up! Sure enough, what a relationship between Christos/Pegasus and Poseidon/Medusa. “In Greek mythology, Chrysaor (Greek: Χρυσάωρ, Khrusaōr; English translation: “He who has a golden armament”), the brother of the winged horse Pegasus, was often depicted as a young man, the son of Poseidon and Medusa.” That is rich, rewarding and stunning. Thanks Dan Mateescu.

      Still in finding St. Paul, it is the small things, the clues, the feather from the wing of Pegasus that fell and landed in the city where ST. Paul came from TARSUS. "Pegasus was tamed by Bellerophon who rode him into battle against the fire-breathing Chimera. Later Bellerophon attempted to fly to Mt. Olympus, the home of the gods, on the back of Pegasus. The gods sent a gadfly to sting Pegasus causing the horse to buck, throwing Bellerophon back down to earth. Pegasus, freed of his burden, continued to wing his way to Mt. Olympus where he took a place in the stables of Zeus/Jupiter. One of his wing feathers fell to earth close to TARSUS giving the city its name." http://www.constellationsofwords.com/Constellations/Pegasus.html

      Belerofonte Bellerophon was the son of Poseidon and Eurynome, daughter of the King of Megara. It all started when Belerefonte was accused of murdering a man who, according to some versions, would be Belero, a tyrant of Corinth (accidentally) (from here Belerofonte Belero matador meaning derives its name). Because of this Belerofonte was an expatriate and went to Tirintio. The ruler of Tirintio era Preto who purified the heroes and the cleansed them of their guilt. The wife of Preto called Antea according to some and Estenebea according to others desired the hero but was not reciprocated by him. Then the woman complained to her husband saying that he had attempted to seduce her. The skillful Preto sent Belerefonte to the Court the father of Antea, Iobates, King of Lycia, to give him a sealed envelope. This envelope contained a letter with instructions from Preto to kill the hero. However the rules of hospitality prevented them from killing outsiders that they had shared their table with. So Iobates didn’t want to infringe on custom, and to satisfy the letter he sent Belerefonte to eliminate chimera, a mythological Monster terrible fire that threw through their three heads: a lion, another goat on the back and the third at the tail of dragon’s head. Iobates was sure that the hero would die.

      The gods set out to help Belerofonte. Athena gave the hero a bridle of gold, with which after finding Pegasus in the Pirene fountain could tame it with ease. Pegasus was a beautiful winged horse, which flowed along with the giant Chrysaor’s blood that flowed out of the neck of Medusa after having her throat by Perseus. There are authors who claim that he was son of Poseidon and Medusa and others who claim that it arose from the soil fertilized by the blood of the Gorgon. This horse liked to wander the Earth in the wild and Zeus placed at your service frequently carrying the God spoke.

      Thanks to this Sorrel told Belerofonte where chimera was and how to defeat the monster. After failing in this mission Iobates sent Belerefonte to fight the solimos, neighbouring village who continually invaded the region and committing vandalism. The hero repelled the solimos and these more never dared to undertake against Lycia. Then he sent Belerefonte to fight against the Amazons, and the hero defeated them again. Iobates finally had ambushed him with a group of his best warriors; Belerefonte, defeated the ambush and the trap set by Iobates.

      Iobates realized that Belerofonte was protected by the gods then showed him the letter sent to him by Preto. To prove that he was telling the truth Iobates gave him the hand of his daughter Filonoe or Antlicia and gave him the keys to the throne. After the death of Ióbates Belerefonte became the King of Lycia. Had two sons: Isandro e, Hippolochus and Laodamia daughter.

      But pride invaded eventually invaded his soul and one day he mounted his winged horse and turned to the heavens to verify the existence of the gods. Because of his unbelief and pride, Zeus punished him by having Pegaso buck him off, precipitating his master, our hero, Belerofonte to fall into the abyss. The horse continued its course until it was converted into the constellation that bears his name.

  7. You got quite an esoteric crush on Jonny Boy.
    Tell me or direct me too your writings that describe
    your understanding between what happens with the etheric
    body when a person moves to Eurythmy and moves to sport?

    1. Eurythmy and Fussball click link

      Allen Pittman (above) in his WISDOM OF THE BODY, is a profoundly esoteric trainer.He gave courses to all my Waldorf classes. However his reputation, (body guard for the Dali Lama) has placed him in nearly all the western and eastern most hidden astral, etheric and physical ARTS. I was specifically exploring one aspect of the ” K ” and “G ” region of Eurythmy. Scythianos is the stream that Allen Pittman is in. You might talk to Allen via his Web page or FB and inform him that you talked to Bradford.

      However the SPEAR is a curious picture being created by both Athena and Hephaestus, connects the vertical and refined forces that move upward from wrestling, discus to spear, places the Spear, as the larynx instrument of the Word, where the Constellations as particular powers of the consonants and the planetary forces as particular secrets of the vowels are equivalent to the upright spine and the larynx seed bed of different currents of the Word as the germinal power of the bowl of the heavens.

      Sports depend on where the body is focused and where astral and etheric forces are used as muscles in the limbs, used with density and steroid abuse or as with the Spear and the ” K “, A highly trained Eurythmist could use the body very differently than that used in the dynamic in sports or in the rich dynamics needed in Speech and Drama. And the I AM comes slowly into deeper and deeper interplay within the Etheric and Astral currents that are normally unconscious in sports.

      The currents of the Etheric that a Eurythmy person uses come sweeping in from the periphery, as Steiner has made note that the confluence of the human form are streams of forces sent out from the Thrones. Each human form is a confluence of forces, that have pulled together, well pulled together a densified peripheral of the vast Imagination of the zodiac that swirls together in each and every human form.

      To gain the mobility variety, unlock, have Eurythmy penetrate and gestures both music, soul mood and sounds become a new living alphabet, releases entirely new forces that are enchanted in the knot and confluence of the entire human form. So in Sports a rather one sided unconscious densification is unable to release these forces and indeed, unless one has studied the body as Pittman has or a Eurythmist immersed consciously in their craft makes these living forces awakened, well in sports the mysteries of body and the etheric are darkened and densified.

      But the liberation of many things, including the higher release of the Christ Phantom form are locked up in the mystery of the human form as well as Eurythmy. So indeed secrets of the human form and certain powerful regions of the compact Saturn designed physical blueprints of our human forms, can be released through Eurythmy and Speech because Athena and Hephaestus had the secrets locked up and the keys are truly in Speech and Eurythmy which opens vast hidden mysteries of different components of the human form and different components of the consonants and vowels, which from our human form we could open and unlock the SEED Kernel of the hidden mysteries of the zodiac.

      Steiner used to say to be able to play the philosophy of freedom backwards and forwards in ones thinking and etheric system, like Eurythmists learn symphonies, music, poems that they awaken hidden forces that still remain to be discovered about Anatomy. Each sport has particular specialized emphasis say on feet, on spinning and diving, on the twins in basketball, in tennis, but their obsessive/compulsive one sided use has little or no ability to unlock the vast secrets of powerful Phantom form that the Etheric Christ penetrated down to the very bones, the very skeleton.
