This article will be the final installment in this series exploring the hidden science of the Holy Grail. There is a great deal more that could be said and at some point additional information will be forthcoming. For now I believe I have sketched the broad outlines and provided some insight into what this science is about. I have emphasized the cosmic symbolism woven into and throughout the narratives. The association with matters celestial issues inexorably from the Grail narratives themselves. It is not surprising that many of the symbolic implications have up until this point gone unappreciated and overlooked by mainstream scholars who have been trained in literary exegesis but who have generally lacked the familiarity with astronomy and other sciences that would allow their recognition of a very specific underlying meaning.

There are parallels to our evolving knowledge of sacred architecture,in which the astronomical and symbolical associations are crucial to understanding the meaning and function of the ancient temples and holy structures.… Read the rest

Sangreal, The Cosmic Grail: The Cauldron of Lugh – Part 9

Sangreal_9_Cover“Is it that we had not yet demonstrated sufficient spiritual maturity to wield such power and additional millennia of training and testing was needed before we would be permitted to graduate to the cosmic level?”

“‘Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language, and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”

In concluding last month’s article I quoted from 12th century Perlesvous describing the appearance of the Holy Grail: “The Grail appeared at the ceremony of the mass, in five different forms that none ought to tell. For the secret things of the sacrament should not be told openly, except by him given by God to tell them. King Arthur beheld all the changes; the last of them was a change into a chalice.”

This quote clearly highlights the protean nature of the Grail.… Read the rest

King Arthur Rides Again

Picture: Ann Wuyts (CC)

Meet the reincarnated, motorcycle-riding King Arthur. I’m guessing he’s seen Knightriders.

Oddity Central:

Their leader, formerly known as John Rothwell, now claims that he is the living embodiment of the 1575-year-old legendary British monarch – King Arthur. He rose to fame in the 1990s, when his efforts to open up access to Stonehenge during religious festivals like the summer solstice paid off, after winning a case at the European Court of Human Rights. Fast forward to present-day and you will find Arthur elected as the ‘Battle Chieftain’ of the Council of British Druid Orders. ‘King Arthur’ and his ‘Loyal Arthurian Warband’ represent the political wing of Britain’s neo-druid community. What’s more, King Arthur also has a partner, his very own High Priestess, and the two of them are quite active these days in protesting for ancient druid remains to get out of the hands of archaeologists and reinstated to their rightful resting place.

Martin Evans writes in the Telegraph:

Researchers exploring the legend of Britain’s most famous Knight believe his stronghold of Camelot was built on the site of a recently discovered Roman amphitheatre in Chester.

Legend has it that his Knights would gather before battle at a round table where they would receive instructions from their King. But rather than it being a piece of furniture, historians believe it would have been a vast wood and stone structure which would have allowed more than 1,000 of his followers to gather.

Historians believe regional noblemen would have sat in the front row of a circular meeting place, with lower ranked subjects on stone benches grouped around the outside. They claim rather than Camelot being a purpose built castle, it would have been housed in a structure already built and left over by the Romans.
