Apotropaic Magic
I must give my acknowledgement to Wesley Durbin on FaceBook for this article. He sent this link to me on my Mysteryoftheiniquity (FACEBOOK) page.
‘Demon Traps’ Found in 17th-Century English House

Upon reading this something didn’t sit right! I thought, “Well, GOD then lead me to it!”. And HE surely did!

ChiRho

If you read the article…it seems, English archaeologists have discovered “demon traps” under the floorboards of one of Britain’s most important historic houses.
Acquired by the Archbishops of Canterbury in the 15th century and gifted to Henry VIII and remodeled in the 17th century by the Sackville family, the house was the birthplace of poet and gardener Vita Sackville-West and the setting for Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando.
Government propaganda, orchestrated by James I, blamed the Catholic conspirators as being in service to Satan, paving the way to widespread accusations of demonic forces and witches at work.
“King James I had a keen interest in witchcraft and passed a witchcraft law, making it an offense punishable by death and even wrote a book on the topic entitled Daemonologie,” James Wright, buildings archaeologist at MOLA, said.
That last part is what caught my attention! You see, even in the 17th century….people knew the Catholic Church was run by devils! WOW! Well, that’s not all.
The carvings included criss-crossed lines, interlocking V-shapes to invoke the protection of the Virgin Mary, and scorch marks made by directly burning the timber with a candle.

“To have precisely dated these apotropaic marks so closely to the time of the Gunpowder Plot, with the anticipated visit from the King, makes this a rare if not unique discovery,” he added.
The Gunpowder Plot of 1605, in earlier centuries often called the Gunpowder Treason Plot or the Jesuit Treason, was a failed assassination attempt against King James I of England and VI of Scotland by a group of provincial English Catholics led by Robert Catesby. (3)
There were said to be “13” conspirators! Yes, 13! The main contributor, Guy Fawkes…a Jesuit Priest of the Roman Catholic Church. His most famous phrase, “V for Vendetta”.

Guy

Guy Fawkes, and the mask of his likeness, has been romanticized in movies, in news and at protests around the world. Most recently, the mask has been used during the populist Occupy protest and the hacker group Anonymous has released numerous videos using the Fawkes likeness.
“Guy Fawkes Night, celebrated by the burning in effigy of a would-be regicide, continues the earlier [pagan] tradition of burning effigies of the evil spirits of the past old year.” (4)
This is the pagan Festival and otherwise known as The Greenman and/or Burning Man Festivals.

School children are often told that Guy’s are burned because this is how Guy Fawkes was punished, which is probably the remnant of an organized effort to conceal the pagan origins of the annual bonfire ceremony.
Which organization is most actively involved in preserving the pagan tradition of November the 5th? The Round Table Society, a fellowship of local business men whose name is evokative of medival knights. (5)
But I digress…

 

There we go! That’s the part we will research. “Apotropaic Marks”.

An identical symbol to the Chi-Rho has been found inscribed on rocks dating from 2,500 BC Sumeria, and was interpreted as ‘a combination of the two Sun-symbols’ – symbols of the ancient shining ones. The shining ones are The Watchers-the fallen angels.

The ancient blue and white Nazar boncuğu symbol, a stylized eye thought to avert the evil eye, appears on this contemporary airplane
Interestingly, even in current society we have symbols which coincide with this. But what is it?
Apotropaic magic (from Greek apotrepein “to ward off” from apo- “away” and trepein “to turn”) is a type of magic intended to “turn away” harm or evil influences, as in deflecting misfortune or averting the evil eye. “Apotropaic” observances may also be practiced out of vague superstition or out of tradition, as in good luck charm (perhaps some token on a charm bracelet), amulets, or gestures such as fingers crossed or knocking on wood. The Greeks made offerings to the Averting Gods, (Ἀποτρόπαιοι θεοί: Apotropaioi Theoi), chthonic deities and heroes who grant safety and deflect evil.
Among the Ancient Greeks the most widely used image intended to avert evil was that of the Gorgon, the head of which now may be called the Gorgoneion, which features wild eyes, fangs, and protruding tongue. The full figure of the Gorgon holds the apex of the oldest remaining Greek temple where she is flanked by two lionesses. The Gorgon head was mounted on the aegis and shield of Athena.

So, who are these CHTHONIC DEITIES?
Chthonic (/ˈθɒnɪk/ or /ˈkθɒnɪk/, from Greek χθόνιος khthonios, “in, under, or beneath the earth”, from χθών khthōn “earth”, apart from its literal translation meaning ‘subterranean’, its historical or interpretive definition designates, or pertains to, deities or spirits of the underworld, especially in relation to Greek religion. The Greek word khthon is one of several for “earth”; it typically refers to the interior of the soil, rather than the living surface of the land (as Gaia or Ge does) or the land as territory (as khora (χώρα) does). It evokes at once abundance and the grave.
The myths associating the underworld chthonic deities and fertility was not exclusive. Myths about the later Olympian deities also described an association with the fertility and the prosperity of Earth. (2)
So, we have spirits of the underworld. Yes, the Greek demi-gods of Atlantis. The fallen angels.

TECHE/MAGIC
I present this because it shows the connection between these magic ‘rituals’ and the current state of our society. How did we begin using these rituals?

Carolyn Nakamura on her PDF:
Abstract
The discussion converges on Neo-Assyrian apotropaic figurine deposits, which provided magical protection of a priest-house at Assur. It is argued here that apotropaic magic engages in a mode of secrecy that underwrites protective power in the social field. These material assemblages, as mimetic expressions of myth and dedication, configure protection in a play on the public secret, the pathos of the real as really made up. Protective power, therefore, emerges in this process that compels the perception and experience of a transformed and protected reality.
Magic is a mode of relating to things in the world; and this mode, which engages materiality to negotiate the human experience of transcendent powers and supernatural beings, delineates a process of bringing forth that which is invisible, imagined and powerful into the hard-core realm of human perception and understanding. Heidegger’s analysis of the Greek concept of techne finds particular relevance here; techne serves ‘to make something appear, within what is present, as this or that, in this way or that way’, it denotes a‘ producing in terms of letting appear’ (Heidegger 1977a: 361, emphasis added). But techne also expresses a mode of knowing, the essence of which consists in the revealing of beings: ‘to know means to have seen, in the widest sense of seeing, which means to apprehend what is present, as such’ (Heidegger 1977b: 184). Viewed as a technique or technology, magic belongs to both a knowing and a producing that foregrounds materiality. The magical object (or substance) presents an imagined reality that is apprehended and experienced as real. Here, magic takes advantage of the recursive exchange between concept and experience, imagination and physical reality; its power resides in this inherent instability of social life, unleashed in the ‘letting appear’, the bringing forth of the invisible into the material realm. Magic, with this capacity to transform reality, serves as an ‘affective technology’ (Meskell in press) and engages in the reproduction of society. Viewed in these terms, the material practice of magic constitutes nothing less than a reproductive technology.
Dedicatory practice joins and often converges with magic under this concept of techne; like magic, dedication forges and transforms networks of social relations, mediating between worlds and beings, effectively reproducing society. The current discussion explores certain modalities of techne in a ritual of Mesopotamian apotropaic magic: the strategic burial of protective figurine deposits under house and temple floors during the Neo-Assyrian period of ancient Iraq (c. 934–610BC). This practice engages magic and dedication to create or bring forth protection. And it is the material production of socially powerful space and object-beings that achieves this goal.
In the Neo-Assyrian period, these often-divergent profiles come under the rule of Marduk (Green 1993–7: 248). The text Sep lemutti ina bit ameli parassu locates the apkallu and lahmu as creatures of the apsu: ‘the statues repelling the evil ones, of Ea and Marduk’ (Wiggermann 1992: 87, line 159).
Various apkallu figures come to represent the Babylonian Seven Sages, mythological antediluvian beings who first brought the arts of civilization to humankind (Black and Green 1992: 163–4; Wiggermann 1992: 75–6).
MARDUK was Bel or Ba’al!
Marduk’s chief temples at Babylon were the Esagila and the Etemenanki, a ziggurat with a shrine of Marduk on the top.
I also believe this is the missing piece in the PYRAMIDS of the Freemasons!

Final Thoughts
Do you see how magic has trickled down through the centuries, and made to be ‘good’? Do you see how people are using items, even the cross symbol, to think, they are protected? This is conjuring a false idol protection! GOD warns us of such activity.
These practices have been handed down to the layperson through our past religions! Through priests and clergy! It’s witchcraft, people.

    This man who is in his 80’s has 83 comments about Guy Fawkes and 9/11 on his blog. He left my posts twice on two blog posts I wasn’t sure he would, Because they are religious in nature. Some unbelievers are not as closed minded as some would think. Actually, they might be more open and God can and does reach them. I posted this link on his blog again. It’s waiting moderation.

    Our Mission

    V I S I O N

    Seven Pillars House of Wisdom is dedicated to cultivating individual and collective wisdom to respond to the call of our time.

    M I S S I O N

    Seven Pillars House of Wisdom brings together a diverse community of people devoted to cultivating a living wisdom for our time. We draw on the intelligence of the natural world, humanity’s sacred heritage, and contemplative insight to inform and inspire this pursuit. Through gatherings, media and the arts, we explore ways to respond with integrity and beauty to the needs of the world.

    In the Qur’an (18:60-82), the Green Man, as the Prophet Muhammad named him, tutors Moses on the mysteries of predestination and theodicy. The Prophet Muhammad explained that he is called the Green Man because when he would sit on barren ground, the ground would turn green.8 Here the Green Man represents the Earth’s renewal, or the power to renew the Earth with plants. Rabbi Kook wrote of the vegetable world, “Every part of the vegetable world is singing a song and breaking forth a secret of the divine mystery.”9 That reality is al-Khidr. Hazrat Inayat Khan called the Green Man al-Khidr, “the guiding angel of all seeking souls.”10 Moses found al-Khidr when a cooked fish came back to life in the waters of eternal life.11 On their subsequent journey, as narrated in the Qur’an, Moses experienced many of al-Khidr’s actions as evil, dangerous and deadly. But al-Khidr, knowing predestination, and acting from discernment, acted in a way that preserved and enhanced life beyond the limited purview of circumstances, chance and passing generations.

    A synthesis of Tarot, I Ching, DNA, The Genetic Code, Hebrew Alphabet, Qabalah, Kabbalah, Cabala, Alexister Crowley.

    1. Why the I Ching symbols are like the codons of the genetic code

    6. Occult Genetic Code Table – by using it, find each of the Trump/Hebrew letter assignments to their respective amino acids and why they are so
    7. I Chin Table – Exagrams

    In the March 1995 issue of “Scientific American”, in the article titled “Talking Trash” (see below), scientists claim to have found “word” patterns in the “junk” DNA of man. It seems that this junk DNA (segments of the DNA genome which do not encode instructions for the production of proteins) exhibits the same statistical patterns that are found in written languages.

    Since the discovery of the DNA double helix molecule in the mid 1950’s scientists have been using “language” as a metaphor to help them understand the structures and processes that express life at the bio-chemical level.

    Current research seems to imply that the metaphor may be more literal than previously thought. Suppose that there are stretches of DNA embedded in the genome of man that, when properly “decoded”, speak to us in a human language. What language would it be; and what would it say? My work points to the possibility that the language may be Hebrew; or, perhaps, a Proto-Caananite precursor of the Hebrew language.

    My work examines some of the evidence supporting that hypothesis. It is placed here in the hope that it will stimulate discussion and further research. To read it and “play” with it will require one to delve into, what is considered by many to be, mutually exclusive categories of knowledge: science and “the occult”. Very few people will be able or willing to entertain the idea that these two antithetical arenas of knowing can illuminate each other. I hope to find a few people who can.

    A number of years ago I stumbled across a unique similarity of form between the genetic code and a fusion of the Hebrew alphabet with the ancient Chinese divination system of the I Ching, or “Book of Changes.” I was studying the I Ching when I came across a book(1) that demonstrated an isomorphism between the 64 symbols of the I Ching (called hexagrams or kua) and the 64 codons of the genetic code. I wondered if there might be, among the mystic or occult systems of other cultures, a corresponding set of symbols for the amino acids of the genetic code for which the 64 codons code. I turned to the Hebrew occult system of Qabalah and discovered the Sefer Yetzirah or “Book of Creation.”(2)

    The Sefer Yetzirah is the earliest known text of the Qabalah. Its “magical” purpose is to educate the reader in the process of creation using the Hebrew alphabet as The Creator did. Because the 22 trump cards (also called atu) of the Tarot system of divination have Hebrew letters assigned to them, I thought that maybe I could compare the symbols, images, and concepts in the Tarot trumps with the corresponding contents of the I Ching kua. Then, if there are enough similarities, I could assign each of the trumps to a group of I Ching kua. The result would be a Hebrew letter assignment for each amino acid and punctuation codon in the genetic code.
