4 Evangelists

The MAN, the EAGLE, the LION, the BULL …. which can be reduced to two numerical codes 11258 and 13769.

UPDATE  May 15, 2014
However it has been noted by other researchers that the ancient world started the zodiac wheel (which has no beginning or end) symbolically with Virgo the virgin not Aries, thus the above 11, 2, 5, 8 code based on Aries would translate into the numbers 6, 9, 12, 3.

But the 13769 code remains unchanged because it is based on the number of chapters found in each gospel that the four Evangelists were said to author.

These codes can be found on Card X, The Wheel of Fortune or Card XXI, The World, of many Tarot decks.*

*those that have maintained the proper correspondences, by coincidence Tarot decks authored by persons associated with the Golden Dawn are the most common today.

~ end of UPDATE ~

11 2 5 8 code is simple to understand.
The numbers correspond to their position on the zodiac wheel.

The 137 69 code is more concealed.

Much evidence suggests that walking a labyrinth has meditative, healing properties.
It is a like a giant placebo I guess, a pill that you can not swallow, but in fact, the pill swallows you as you enter its domain.


Here is one I have been working on in my backyard.

3 Crosses of Christ

Three crosses as depicted in Alice Bailey’s book Esoteric Astrology published by Lucis Trust.
These 3 Crosses are based on the 12 signs of the Zodiac;

  1. four Mutable signs (swastika ~ asymmetrical movement)
  2. four Fixed signs (celtic cross ~ symmetry ~ navigating the asymmetry of space)
  3. four Cardinal signs (‘arrow’ ~ asymmetrical time marches forward)

One explanation can be found here:

Crichton E.M. Miller’s recovery of the deeper meaning behind the Celtic Cross as a navigation tool clearly identifies him as an archetypal helper of the mythical Pahana, helping to bring forth the recovery of simple unifying knowledge and wisdom lost to the various interpretations of space, time, and motion or movement.

The labyrinth I chose as template is a composite of ALL of the above, a blending of many ideas, the path itself, i.e. how we get from the outside to the inside and back out again, without crossing any lines is based on this one, because its function was designed for marriage, and alchemy is the marriage of the anima to the animus.

Ceremonial Labyrinth

designed by Helen Curry 

But I intentionally ‘reversed it’, I put my asymmetrical twist to Helen Curry’s design.

And I also changed the shape of the paths to reflect the shapes of the 3 CROSSES on the bottom row.

The design is called the 4 AGES Model Labyrinth.
I added a little Alice Bailey, a little Timothy Leary, Carl Jung and alchemy and of course, a little Raphael was put in to this ‘garden’ design.
It also incorporates, as part of its intent, the 4 AGES Model I speak about when discussing CARD X and Solomon’s Knot.

In a sense this garden labyrinth is a model for precession and our evolving DNA, where you see how the outer is connected to the inner, and how the observer can effect the observation, all connected by an unbroken path that can be clearly followed.

It illustrates how the observer can effect the outer form … note the :arrow: emanating from the center :idea: shaped chiminea, the spark, the yod, which later gives shape to the 3 leaf clover (this labyrinth hints at why the 4 leaf clovers are rare), the arrow on the next level resembles a gigantic bubble of plasma, eventually giving form to the OUTER garden that manifests in the final stages, indicated by the RED path of fire and beyond.

The one continuous path connects the inner to the outer.

It is a labyrinth that incorporates many archetypes into its inherent design as these blogs illustrate:

And it is NOT a coincidence that my avatar/mandala above, and the red cedar chip in the garden labyrinth both have an outer RED background.
Note also both have a ‘swastika’ in the center of the mandala/labyrinth.

Fall has arrived.
Can’t wait till spring 2010.


“stay away, keep out from here, ye profane”

“stay away, keep out from here, ye profane”
These images top vs. bottom are 400+ years apart
What is important to recognize is the flat orthogonal geometry.

It is uncanny.
What does it mean?

Note all the tunnels have a man inside for scale.

The first image is of an alchemist in search of the philosopher’s stone and the second is a modern day alchemist working at CERN.
How could that be?

Too bad Carl Jung would have loved these two images linking the past with the present.

Carl Jung felt Alchemy was the predecessor of psychoanalysis.
He also felt the four fold mandala was the ultimate tool in helping the seeker find themselves.

  • All of the images above are divided into 8 sections.
  • Great Pyramid of Giza is actually an 8 sided pyramid, only visible during the equinoxes.
  • Noah’s Ark had 8 family members aboard.
  • I Ching structure is based on 8 family members.

Where did all of the above lead me?


And can we separate science fact from science fiction without causing friction/cognitive dissonance?

Maybe it is best to entertain and educate at the same time?

p.s. I wrote about Alice Bailey, the 3 Crosses, the Lucifier Trust, the UN on other forums and blogs.

  1. Hey I am currently just starting to study the Swastika in the last few weeks now. My wife is reading the Earth Chronicles by Sitchin I’m sure you know that series. I’m currently in the second half of a Jim Marrs Book called the Rise of the Fourth Reich not sure you know that one. Sitchen Deals with anciant history while Marrs deals more with current History and current events. For some strange reason our books cross coralated each other. which brought me to the Swastika. Man this symbol fascinated me so everyday I am looking and Came accross Buddha and Shambhala which says the same as Sumer and Babylon and all the others including Africa. I’m finding out the the story behind that Symbol to be very very very old. then I found this page.

    This page is very informative and is constantly updated awesome. As any information espacialy the swastika I wanna know about. Thank and keep up the good work

    • you might want to start at the beginning.

      scroll down my posts and start in march 2007 and then work your way to the present.
      there is an order to my madness.


  2. Dearest Raphael,

    After several days of absorbing what you have gifted to me, to all of us, I have been sharing with loved ones. As I was typing a subject line in my email, I playfully typed it reflectively, discovering that and=dna. (Forgive me if I have not come across this in your blog yet.) In grammar, “and” is a logical conjunction ^ & which led to a logic gate:
    stay with me…
    and then DNA nanotechnology:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_nanotechnology (!!scroll down for some old friends here) – HAVE YOU SEEN THIS??

    By the way, my birthdate is 10-11-1972.
