Nostradamus 'Saw'

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

Continued from page 1

I propose now that magic is to religion as banditry is to politics. As banditry challengesrepparttar ultimate legitimacy of political power, so magic challenges that of spiritual power. Magic and religion can be mutually distinguished, inrepparttar 144998 ancient world or inrepparttar 144999 modern one, by political and prescriptive definitions but not by substantive, descriptive, or neutral descriptions.” (3)

He could have added thatrepparttar 145000 illegitimate offspring who seek to return torepparttar 145001 state of power in their father or grandfather’s time as inrepparttar 145002 case of Hitler often over-achieve. In Napoleon’s case he may have soughtrepparttar 145003 legendary Tuscan noble position of many centuries earlier. Some will even say I have a genetic pre-disposition to grandeur because I am a ‘bastard’ of THE Bruce. But I am a BRD ofrepparttar 145004 language ofrepparttar 145005 Birds and it seems to have helped me understandrepparttar 145006 lesser codes of Green Languages.

“Divination is one of man's oldest spiritual technologies, its origins lost inrepparttar 145007 shift from neolithic hunter-gatherers to settled agriculturalists. Asrepparttar 145008 shaman developed intorepparttar 145009 priest, divination, along with all forms of spiritism, became codified into mythology. From a framework of mythic events and divination - literally readings ofrepparttar 145010 divine - came language, which evolved over time into written forms based onrepparttar 145011 original symbolic elements. In turn, these symbolic elements becamerepparttar 145012 focus of divinatory practices of their own, creating sub-sets of meaning within common words and phrases. From this intentional ambiguity aroserepparttar 145013 possibility of an initiate's language, a language ofrepparttar 145014 birds, or, as it was expressed byrepparttar 145015 medieval initiates,repparttar 145016 Green Language.

Although we can point torepparttar 145017 Green Language {Ofrepparttar 145018 Hibernians including Swift, Carlyle, and many Great Scots.}in works as diverse as Midsummer Night's Dream and The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosencruz, Nostradamus' quatrains, 18th century alchemical texts and surrealist manifestos, few authors have bothered to explain it. One who did was Fulcanelli,repparttar 145019 enigmatic 20th century alchemist and philosopher, in his masterpiece The Mystery ofrepparttar 145020 Cathedrals, published in Paris in 1926. Here we have an authentic, although mysterious, voice of authority; one that was both master ofrepparttar 145021 Green Language itself, and a master ofrepparttar 145022 subjects usually hidden within it.” (4)
