Nietzsche’s Avesta

and Dostoyevski’s Russian Christ — shaped my spiritual consciousness not to mention my sundry anthro-astro armchair quests.

A ruling concept I’m attempting to polish is a cultural interface of world views (weltanschuaangs sp?) between the Marduk/Jupiter cultures and the Solar/Apollonian — the latter with the sun as the organizing principle is more resonant with “objective” reality of the solar system = the Jupiterian cultures organized time by the Moon (lunar, dianic, dionysian — which means Ruth Benedict’s Apollonian/Dionysian dichotomy is absolutely sound), the Apollonian cultures by solar — usually seasonal at the stolstices and equinoces, though the Mayans did it different, tracking the sun’s passage over the 15 degree of Latitude, the absolute fractal paradigm for their sacred 280 year, I must visit Copan — that would be a great place to spend the Winter Solstice in 2012 — I believe the Mayans were off by about a pluto cycle when they calculated the end of their 5th Great Age. Each of which is one fifth of a 26,000+ years of the Precession Cycle — western cosmologists (astronomers and astrologers) measure this by the point of the vernal equinox on the tropical zodiac (of the signs and seasons) against its corresponding point 0 Aries Sidereal which is the Zodiac of the Constellations. The Mayans use the point of intersection of their Sidereal Zodiac with the Galactic Circle, a longitudinal factor and absolute insofar as it is out there in “reality” at about 5 degrees of Sidereal Sagittarius and Sidereal Gemini — this point which is the black hole at the Galactic Center will conjunct the Solstice 0 Capricorn of the Tropical Solar Zodiac in 2227, not 2012. The Mayans didn’t have a functional wheel, much less an electronic ‘scope — people have been arguing about the start of the “Aquarian Age” way before “Hair” was a hot ticket. The Constellations are Culturally Contingent — different cultures group different stars together — connecting the dots to make culturally meaningful pictures and stories — the Sun’s Journey against the constellations have mythic correlates as in the 12 Labors of Herakles. Herakles thus a Solar principal (though, since Planet Jupiter’s cycle is a virtual 12 years, one year in each sign, that’s a tad arguable), despite his madness, an Apollonian as is Mithras, (modern Christmas is derived from the Roman interpretation of the Parthian Mithraic rites) The other way to divide the Sidereal Zodiacal circle is by the Lunar transits — and the cultures which do that — Islamic, Vedic — call these lunar constellations the 27 (or 28) Mansions of the Moon. While the moon travels through a Solar Constellation in 2.5 days, it spends roughly one 24 hour period per lunar mansion per month.

We perceive time through cycles. The diurnal cycle, the rotation of the earth about its axis, is perceived by most sensient beings, written into the basic dna of life through some arrangement of the biological tetragrammaton — GATC, the word of G-d that created life — and then light was perceived.

The word month is directly derived from Moon — earliest written documents, bones with marks representing the days between the first sighting of the new moon — eg, measure in earthly rotations of the moon’s barycentric orbit about the earth — another cycle doubtless written in dna of hypothetically more evolved sensate beings by the rhthyms established by tiamet the ocean ordered by the new & full of the moon.
