(NOTE:I think I can put this one to bed; 'As an Egyptian deity, Thoth performed a number of functions. He was a moon god, symbolised by the cusped or horned moon, & silver was sacred to him.
' - Baigent & Leigh, 'The Elixir & The Stone' (1997).
'Seth, the reputed forefather of Israel, is only a Jewish travesty of Hermes, the God of Wisdom, called also Thoth, Tat, Seth, Set, & Satan.' - Madame Blavatsky 'The Secret Doctrine' (1888).
Meanwhile in the world of the inanimate, there's been a marked decrease of colour in our lives, or is it a case of an increase in shade? They say silence is golden but speech is silver tongued, at least that's what they say, & in my place of origin in England, UK, legislators have deemed it fit to set it in stone that private hire taxi cabs now have to be of a more silvery shade of pale;
This is no coincidence either, as older buildings are torn down, more refined blocks of ice spring up in their place;
I can find no concrete correlations within the writings of the Mystery Schools for this latest phenomenon as yet, only fleeting glimpses such as this from Manly Hall;
'Poseidon's (Zeus) own temple, its exterior entirely covered with silver & its pinnacles with gold, also stood within the citadel (of Atlantis). The interior of the temple was of ivory, gold, silver, & orichalch, even to the pillars & floor. The temple contained a colossal statue of Poseidon standing in a chariot drawn by six winged horses' .
& yet more pagan curiosities from north of the border, these (not the Isis statue) are located in my wife's hometown of Alloa, what on earth could they represent?
A cabalistic pronunciation of the tetragrammaton, or ineffable name of God; it is most probably the true one; as it literally means He-She, it is supposed to denote the hermaphroditic essence of Jehovah - as containing within himself the male & female principle - the generative & prolific energy of creation…….In the Cabala, a hidden meaning in a word is often deduced by transposing or reversing it's letters, & it was in this way that the Cabalists concealed many of their mysteries.'
- Albert G Mackey.
Perhaps what's being represented here is Quicksilver.....Mercury.......Hermes.......Thoth? Or maybe it's Isis in her guise as the silvery moon? On the other hand it could all be the work of Larry Silverstein, you never know!
(Actually it IS Hermes)
