Here There Be Dragons – The Symbolism Of Dragon Lore In Western History

Written by Faith Harper

Continued from page 1

The dragon also plays a vital role in Arthurian legend. While actual Arthurian dragon slaying tales are minimal, dragons are invoked for symbolic reasons in relation to key Arthurian figures. Arthur himself, along with his father Uther, was often referred to asrepparttar “head dragon” (usingrepparttar 137538 more archaic term Pendragon). In this instance, dragons represent conflict, discord, and dissention. King Vortigen’s prophecy from Merlin usesrepparttar 137539 symbology of dragons to announce his imminent fall from power. Merlin tells Vortigen that his tower rests on two warring dragons, creating an unstable foundation for his future leadership.

For Tristan and Lancelot,repparttar 137540 most famous dragon-slaying medieval Knights ofrepparttar 137541 Round Table, dragons represent an all-consuming passion that lead to their downfall. Tristan is thought to have slain a dragon shortly before meeting Isuelt, who heals him fromrepparttar 137542 wounds he obtained during battle. The love potion they drank together was listed as dragon blood in many accounts ofrepparttar 137543 famous story. Lancelot’s dragon slaying is done in order to save Elaine, whom Lancelot has a torrid affair with, thinking she is Guinevere. Again, many ofrepparttar 137544 accounts of this tale attribute Lancelot’s affair torepparttar 137545 mind-altering affects of a dragon-blood potion.

While dragons are often used to symbolize evil itself (orrepparttar 137546 embodiment of evil inrepparttar 137547 form ofrepparttar 137548 Devil), dragons also represented many ofrepparttar 137549 byproducts of evil, including rage, power, passion, and strife. Ironically, these powerful images are in direct contrast torepparttar 137550 role ofrepparttar 137551 dragon in Eastern mythology, whererepparttar 137552 dragon invokes an almost Christ-like form as a benevolent creature that representsrepparttar 137553 son of heaven.

I agree with George Bush:

I found myself agreeing with Georgerepparttar Second of America when he pulled out ofrepparttar 137365 Kyoto Accord. This raisedrepparttar 137366 eyebrows of more than a few people I know. I believe he saw that saltingrepparttar 137367 skies with chemicals which would lessenrepparttar 137368 apparent pollution would not kill more people inrepparttar 137369 short term and savingrepparttar 137370 billions of dollars required to implement Kyoto would not take into considerationrepparttar 137371 use of nanobots which soon will be able to clean uprepparttar 137372 pollution and maybe even make money harvestingrepparttar 137373 minerals inrepparttar 137374 process.

I also agree with George inrepparttar 137375 matter of spending more on space exploration but I am extremely concerned about SDI and HAARP as well asrepparttar 137376 Frequency Fence andrepparttar 137377 kind of weapons Dennis Kucinich tried to have removed from space. These weapons called non-lethal include mind control potentials that I cannot address in full in this article. In fact any reader of this article will have to do a lot of research to become aware of what is really going on. The issue includes viewing future technology and I demonstrate this has been done by more people than Leonardo, Nostradamus and Father Ernetti in my many books on these subjects. Dean Radin (5) and Stanford Research Institute as well asrepparttar 137378 Defense Intelligence Agency (6) are worth looking into. He works in Las Vegas. I lived there for many years near to S-4 and Area 51. The government says it does not even exist but I met many people who work there and other places like Tonopah.

George andrepparttar 137379 other Skull and Bones people that run for President ofrepparttar 137380 United States would have us believe it is a mere boys club and there are books which supposedly expose them and other nefarious groups which are actually well-managed ‘Spin’. There are groups like The Pilgrims, Russell Foundation or Beacon Hill Mob (and lots of other names or alphabet soup agencies) who actually put front men likerepparttar 137381 Bushes in power.

Prescott Bush was named in court proceedings in reference to trading withrepparttar 137382 enemy andrepparttar 137383 funding of Hitler and he brought us Richard Nixon. His paladin status withrepparttar 137384 Rockefeller agents ofrepparttar 137385 Rothschild or Merovingian complex is a nest of CIA or OSS involvement withrepparttar 137386 founding of The Bilderbergs and many other worthwhile research excursions. The Hegelian Dialectic or ‘playing both ends againstrepparttar 137387 middle’ is not new but it is important. Eisenhower’s address onrepparttar 137388 military-industrial complex is a must read. (7)

The BEES or Benjaminite Rothschilds have been orchestrating supposedly New World Order throughout history. I demonstrate they includerepparttar 137389 De Medicis and Stuarts or Bruttii in more ways that their sponsorship ofrepparttar 137390 translation ofrepparttar 137391 Corpus Hermeticum into a book named after their family called De Brix. (8) The FED and IMF are outreaches of these Synarchists who get a piece ofrepparttar 137392 action through arbitrage and other dastardly games. David Guyatt is a former financial wizard worth reading. (9) John Ralston Saul, who isrepparttar 137393 husband ofrepparttar 137394 Governor-General of Canada and a former head of a Paris-based investment firm, saysrepparttar 137395 end ofrepparttar 137396 Bretton Woods Agreement wasrepparttar 137397 single most important event ofrepparttar 137398 20th Century. George Orwell’s slogans like ‘War is Peace’ and ‘Love is Hate’ are eerily reminiscent ofrepparttar 137399 current War on Terra which former CIA Director Woolsey calls WWIV. (10)

Are you concerned? Will you take my challenge and check outrepparttar 137400 following links? There is a potential to make everyone on earth as rich as Midas or Croessus and we can throw offrepparttar 137401 Malthusian One Pie ideology (11) but it requires some study and effort.
