Sloka Two: Walking the Alameda
8 The day we were all shot with neutrinos
A preceding supernova of equivalent brilliance erupted in the Andromeda Galaxy in 1885. Although M31 in its entirety is just barely detectible to the naked eye, the 1885 supernova, a single star among the 320 billion in that Galaxy, was distinctly visible in a bright flare that outshown the entire disk. This means that in 1885, not just the Andromeda galaxy was visibile to the naked eye, but a single star in that galaxy was visible. This is as if a single cell in your body exploded into light and its luminosity engulfed the entire body.
Asuramaya's chronology provides a tentative match between earth time and what is (rather facetiously) called time on M31. In this timeframe, 1885 is a momentous, unprecedented year for human evolution. Andromedans believe that their supernova, even though it may not have been consciously observed by many people, drew enormous subliminal attention on earth. Because they tend to see events on earth through the lens of poetic-literary allusion, natives of M31 regard the 1885 supernova as the signal that triggered the Modernist movement. It was the birth-omen of Velamir Khlebnikov, HD, Ezra Pound, Sabina Spielrein, D. H. Lawrence and many others.
Lake Manasa Short name of Lake Manasarowar of Hindu legend, known in Tibetan as Mapham Yum-Tso. This lake is widely cited in Hindu and Tibetan Tantric lore as the most sacred site dedicated to Shiva, the pre-eminent shamanic deity of Dravidian India. It is situated beneath Mount Kailasa in the lower Kangri range of the Himalayas. Master shamans of the Bon Po and Dzogchen traditions are also closely associated with Lake Manasa. Its reflection ("apposition," to use the proper Andromedan term) on Andromeda appears on the underside side of the inner loop of the Syrene Limb.
Messier List A catalogue of nebulous objects compiled by French comet-hunter, Charles Messier [1730 -1817] from observations made at his tower observatory at the Hotel de Cluny in Paris. It lists the most spectacular deep-sky objects of the northern skies by numbers: M31 for the Andromeda Galaxy, M42 for the Orion Nebula.
A Divine Body must emerge within the physical body, or not at all.
Bilocation stabilizes with glimpses of the Damsel Body, hence the practice of earthside sexual Tantra, not really intended for the visualization of the partners, each seeing the other as a Divinity with the spurious aim of realizing their “identity with God,” but for heightened perception in the moment of pre-orgasmic meltdown, when the plasmic doubles exude, phantom figures thrown free on the surf of tenderness, so that each consort is to the other the touchstone of co-emergent bliss in the spontaneous rite of samarasa (“same-tasting”), pleasure that eats itself.
The Dendera Zodiac displays our parallel universe, the Andromeda Galaxy, by an utchat, "Eye of Horus," in a circle to the left (west) of the upper Fish, accurately representing its celestial location. In fact, the ecliptic longitude line extending up to M 31 lies exactly as shown between the RAM and the FISHES. The longitude of Andromeda is marked by the star at the apex of the V, the knot of the cord that joins the Fishes: this is 28 Aries in the sign zodiac. Note how the imagery shows two Vs: that of the cord joining the Fishes, and that formed by the Ram's tail and the left or vertical cord. This detail bring double emphasis to the alignment of M 31 with the V-formation beneath the ecliptic rim, the defining line of the zodiac.
According to R. H. Allen (Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning, 1899), the earliest recorded observation of M 31 occurs in a star catalogue compiled by "Al Sufi" in 986. He notes that classical stellographers such as Hipparchos and Ptolemy, known to have been keen observors of the sky, did not mention it; and it was excluded from later, updated star maps by expert skywatchers such as Tycho Brahe, Bayer, and others. Curious.
Was there a tradition of secrecy associated with singling out Andromeda?
the supernova had spawned a double New York Times, Saturday, May 15, 1987: “Stellar Explosion Reported to Spawn Mysterious Twin” by Malcolm M. Browne. Not yet over their bafflement about the birth of SN 1987A from a blue supergiant, astronomers were further astonished by the appearance of a twin-star at the locale of the cosmic explosion.
Dr. Robert W. Noyes of the Harvard-Smithsonian Observatory considered the twin so puzzling that he and his team revisited Chile to study it further. “We don’t know what’s happening, but we certainly need to know more about this companion...”
9 Asuramaya sighed.
The Men from Orion were stalkers attracted to the hunting magic found uniquely in the Gaian system, cradle of myriad species. Their anatomical type was A-form, Alpha variant of the Anthropos, the Aeonic template for homo sapiens. (Hence, perhaps, the off-putting term “Alpha-male.”) Their body-form was originally plasmatic, later to co-mutate with somatic doubles in the Gaian habitat and finally to fossilize in the fully somatic, physical, organ-bound body of the hapless lummox, Australopithicus. The Men first appeared as odd roiling clouds in the upper atmosphere, gaseous blotches menacing the ivory-domed pavilions of the Gaian menageries, fog-like monstrosities, turbulent Earth Divers of the Maidu, copycat avatars of the Vishnavaite Boar of Heaven, Nainema to the Uitoto of Columbia, Lightning Brothers of the Kakadu, “They-who-are-appearance-only” with acca-threads like succulent Hawaiian finger-pulp, inchoate Nephilim Dads, Mist Men of the Icelandic Eddas, engorged nebula-males who coupled with the daughters of earth according to the quaint taint of Biblical idiom.
At the other anatomical extreme from the Men was the Omega-type, the anatomical mold of the Gaian women or Sidhe who represent the complementary half of the Anthropos template. The Sidhe also originate from the Anthropos template in the Orion Nebula but their emergence into becoming was coveal with the Gaian world-system. Their sexual-organic make-up is grounded in the earth while the Orion Men are genitally bonded to the celestial matrix in the Trapezium.The gender differences of the human species do not merely arise biologically within the species in earthbound evolution, but they are predetermined by cosmic partition or shearing in the extraterrestrial matrix, the Pleromic Stain.
Anatomically the male form is streamlined, consistent with its original activity of transdimensional travel. The Alpha anatomy was adapted to rapid and unimpeded passage through space. Breasts are reduced, fleshy curves minimized, the body-lines “hardened.” The ideal male form is sleek and taut, hence the Greek model of Apollonian manhood embodied in the Koure, virgin-boy anatomy. Only the externally deployed genitals present a seeming contradiction to the overall design. But it was not always so. Originally the male genitalia was a compact unit packed away as tightly as the purse-like pudendum of a virginal girl. The Orion Men possessed no magically self-erecting phallic wand, no floppy ballistic accessories. The purpose of their bud-like organ was to secrete acca for the thread that connected the Men to the home template. In place of the comically ungainly apparatus of penis and scrotum they possessed a potent gland that both secreted the thread and retained it.
Shamanic traditions on earth preserve clouded memories of the antics of the Orion hunters. In Japanese lore the cord for shamanic shenanigans was ritually reproduced as a left-handed rope, knotted at the bottom, woven of rice straw pulled up by the roots. It failed to serve for cosmic transport, of course, yet the act of concentration required to ritually wind such a cord induced the heightened attention for exploring other worlds. (Stalking is a method of ritual behavior.) All variations of shamanic ascent to heaven involve the cord motif. All derive from the first visitations of the Orion Men to the Gaian habitat. This is why the aboriginal heaven is called a “happy hunting ground,” a paradise thriving with exotic wildlife. The heaven described is actually the earth.
In Tibetan lore derived from indigenous Bon Po shamanism the expression “opening the door of the sky” (nam mkha’ sgo ‘byed) “designates ascent into the celestial sphere by means of a magical rainbow light cord (dmu)...The dmu cord is the symbol of communication between earth and sky: this word is also found in divinatory rites, in which it connotes ‘the cord for ascending to the sky.’ ” (Orofino, Tantra in Practice) The ascent is possible because it had been preceded by a descent: the Orion Men descended from M42 on a streamer of the Aeonic template for the human species. Their bodies were huge emulsions that stained the skies, produced violent weather and engendered stunning displays of thunder and lightning. They were remembered as “storm-gods.”
Sacred kingship, or theocracy, is the basis of all ancient civilization. It was not brought to earth by extraterrestrials but it was invested in human males who came from a celestial locale beyond the earth. In its initial form the status of sacred kingship was conferred on men by the Goddess Gaia through her priestesses. Women of the Sultress Strain were prominent in this ritual. They were hierodules, temple prostitutes like priestesses of Aphrodite and Anath who tested the moral qualities of the royal candidate with their erotic skills. The candidate who did not show tenderness and patience on the conjugal bed was not allowed to assume the role of king. In the ceremony of hieros gamos, sacred marriage, the power of the genital thread was ritually transferred from its celestial grounding point to the earth. The king’s duty to “plow” the priestess and (symbolically) fertilize the earth was evidence of his willingness to accept this transfer and thus become totally human, earthbound, consecrated to Gaia.
Dreaming and stalking present the true strategic reflexes of sexual duality within the human species, but the boundaries are flexible and many playful changes can occur. There are cross-gender dreamings and stalkings....
To Andromedans the tragedy unfolding on earth looks as complex as it is, but at least the true nature of human sexual duality is clear to them. Because the Orion Men and the Sidhe did not recognize in each other their derivation from the same template, the species eventually produced by their union suffers from an identity-problem of truly cosmic proportions. Profound abuse and deception feed on this age-old confusion. To see the Divine in bodily form, aesthetically, appears to Andromedans as a provisional solution, a way for humanity to heal this deep archaic split. Sadly, the narcissistic virus that has raged on earth since the midpoint of Kali Yuga (around 550 BCE) makes this option extremely elusive. Looking for divinity within themselves in some sentimental and disembodied way, human beings are not even attracted to the beauty of corporeal form, transsexually divined. They prefer to see divinity—or what’s worse, really, to look for it—in their egos, their precious “inner” selves.
In human imagination the “Earth Goddess” is pictured as a women due to what is called “anthropomorphic projection.” Andromedans know the inverse is true: She does not have to borrow the form of woman, even imaginatively, because all women have Her form. To visualize the Gaia Body in woman’s form prepares the perception of the Body. The form is divine, hence the power of woman’s body, or even the image or the mere suggestion of it, to cast a spell over men and women alike. Andromedans want to see this spell reversed. The male form is also divine but it does not carry the equivalent charge of sacred power, mana, within the Gaian habitat, since it is not formally designed to reflect that habitat. The divinity of the male form is “ideal,” out-of-this-world, the Platonic and Apollonian model of beauty, abstracted from Nature.
