The following is at the very end of my post – “The Spiritual Idea” – pt. 2. I wanted to add to it after seeing The Da Vinci Code again (on March 24, 2017). I have added new material to the post. I will not go into as great of detail as I could about The Da Vinci Code because I have eleven-part post on it elsewhere called – The Da Vinci Code Uncoded. (If you have read SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS before April 9, 2017, there have been a few additions made.)
March 23, 2017 – Let me add the following to this post. In Revelation 1 the Son of man has only seven stars but there are five extra stars in the woman’s crown (Rev. 12). There are five Illustrations from Christ and Christmas that show the Morning Star in them. Also, in the original star symbol for Venus there are only five points (not seven). I will explain later on as to why I feel that Mary Baker Eddy gave the Morning Star (Venus) two extra points. Let me quote to you from Dan Brown’s book (The De Vinci Code, pages 39-42) about the pentacle and Venus.
The pentacle “is representative of the female half of all things; the ‘sacred feminine’ or the ‘divine goddess.’” It is a symbol for Venus “the goddess of female sexual love and beauty.” The “goddess and planet were one and the same.” It is named “Venus, the Eastern Star, Ishtar, Astarte” also the morning star and evening star. All of them are “powerful female concepts with ties to Nature and Mother Earth.” Although the pentacle seems to have to do with fertility and sex I feel that this is the ancient viewpoint. Today, we can look at the pentacle and Venus without the implication of physicality.
“Venus traces a perfect pentacle across the eliptic sky every eight years. Greeks used the eight year cycle to organize their Olympic Games.” Instead of the five points of the star, the Games utilize five circles. In the book, Captain Bezu Fashe (who is referred to as the Bull – the second living creature is the bull or ox representing the Christ) asks Robert (meaning Star; I have interpreted Robert to mean “prophet”) Langdon (probably means – “long, narrow town”) if the pentacle is not a symbol for the devil?
Langdon responds by saying that the “pentacle was altered by the early Roman Catholic Church [which oddly, as ecclesiastical despotism is the true devil]. As part of the Vatican’s campaign to eradicate pagan religions and convert the masses to Christianity, the Church launched a smear campaign against the pagan gods and goddesses, recasting their divine symbols as evil.”
Langdon is taken to the Louvre Museum being to be questioned by Fashe about a murder. The victim drew a pentacle on his chest with his own blood and his “body” is “spread-eagle”. Langdon says that the “position simply reinforces the reference to the pentacle and sacred feminine…If one pentacle is good, two is better.” The victim also drew a circle around his body with a pen that needs black light to illuminate it. At first neither of them can explain why the man’s body is naked. After seeing the invisible circle Langdon figures out that it is because the dead man (Agent Sophie Nevue’s grandfather) was making his body like Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. On page 101 it states that the Vitruvian Man was “named for Marcus Vetruvius” he was a “Roman architect who prized the Divine Proportion.” Da Vinci “was the first to show that the human body is literally made of building blocks whose proportional ratios always equal PHI.” PHI (pronounced PHEE) is a divine proportion found throughout nature. One example is in the seeds of a sunflower that grow in opposing spirals. The “ratio of each rotation’s diameter to the next [is] PHI.” (Below is my idea of what the Vitruvian Man represents – generic man as the angel of Revelation 10 and the woman God-crowned [Rev. 12].)
The circle around the Vitruvian Man is “a feminine symbol of protection.” (The Da Vinci Code, p. 49) This seems strange, as we think of protection as a masculine quality! “The circle around the body completed Da Vinci’s intended message – male and female harmony.” (Ibid) So what about CHRISTIAN UNITY? I think that its circular shape symbolizes the same thing; only it also represents the harmony between Christianity and Science. As Jeremiah says: “A woman shall compass [embrace] a man.” Could this not also mean, “A woman, who is God-crowned, shall give birth to a man-child”?
So why do I think that the morning star in Christ and Christmas has seven points instead of five? I think it is because Mary Baker Eddy was giving us the seven synonymous terms for God as these seven points of light – Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love. Up to Jesus’ Fifth Day of Life we have the five points on the morning star. Yet, because this morning star is all about the sacred feminine – then we add the sixth point for the Sixth Day of Truth when Mary Baker Eddy comes as the second advent of Christ and the seventh point is for the Seventh Day of Love when Martha-Sharon-Dinah (representing generic man) comes as the third advent of Christ. And Love being the seventh point takes the symbol for Venus (goddess and planet) out of the belief in devil worship (with five points) and places it into the hands of Love (with seven points).
Is it possible that Mary Magdalene was just a disciple who prefigured (symbolically) the woman God-crowned (Revelation 12) – Mary Baker Eddy whose God-crowned mission was in the 19th and early 20th centuries? Why would not Mary Baker Eddy be the fulfillment of Bible prophecy spoken of in Revelation, written by St. John? John (not Peter or Paul) is the one that Jesus entrusted with the prophecy of Christian Science.
On page 275 (The Da Vinci Code) it says, “The five-petal rose…is the Priory [a fictitious group made up for the book’s story] symbol for the Holy Grail. Mary Magdalene.” She “became known by many pseudonyms–the Chalice, the Holy Grail, and the Rose. The Rose has ties to the five-pointed pentacle of Venus and the guiding Compass Rose…In primitive goddess cults, the five petals represented the five stations of female life – birth, menstruation, motherhood, menopause, and death.” (All of these are, however, lies about a material woman, incurred by the curse in Eden, they are not the reality of her being, just part of Adam’s dream.) Yet, let us take the five words and apply them to the five illustrations with the five seven-pointed stars found in Christ and Christmas. (I will have these Illustrations depicted later on in the text.) In THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM “birth” is depicted as Jesus, a baby held in his mother’s arms (near the Star’s light). Menstruation is about the young woman coming of age and having a blood period every month. In CHRIST HEALING we see Jesus raising up Mary Baker Eddy. Mary’s two healings took place when she was 12 (when she gave up false scholastic theological beliefs of her church) and in February 1864 when she was 42.5 years young. In the 1864 healing, not only was she raised up from the belief in death, but from that point onward she no longer suffered from the monthly blood periods. SEEKING AND FINDING seems to depict Mary Baker Eddy’s role as Mother (Motherhood). Menopause is when women stop having their blood cycles. It is also referred to as the change of life. Yet, after February 4, 1864, Mary Baker Eddy had no more monthly blood cycles, she did not go through menopause. So, her change of life went from a belief in material life to spiritual Life. This is the only change of life there can ever be. And it is via CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING that man lives and manifests Life. Finally, the only death there can be is to the false belief that there is life, truth, intelligence, and substance in matter. This death takes place when the little book is opened and the generic manchild (daughter or babe) is permitted (SUFFER) TO COME UNTO ME (Christ) via the Word of God found in SCIENCE AND HEALTH. We must have two more points of light (rose petals) for the morning star as divine Science. These two points or petals do not belong to the mission of Motherhood but are of the mission of the Lamb’s bride. They are CHRISTIAN UNITY – where Christianity (the Lamb) and Science (the Bride) are married or united as one, and TRUTH versus ERROR – where the Bride city descends from heaven with divine Science (TRUTH).
So let us now take a closer look at these five Illustrations from Christ and Christmas. The first Morning Star (Venus) that we see (which has seven points of light) is in the first Illustration – STAR OF BETHLEHEM. This star shines upon the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus, this was how it was during the first advent of Christ. Yet this poem book is for the second advent of Christ. So in the upper right corner we have the woman bowing her head toward the Star of divine Science. When the book is turned to where the woman’s head is on the bottom we can see the head of Jesus (in some editions). To me this simply means that the Christ came as man and woman, but their goal is the same goal, or one goal. Mary Baker Eddy also gave the Star of Bethlehem a second name, as she called it the Star of Boston. In Revelation 1, Scripture tells us that the Son of man (Jesus) calls the seven stars of the seven churches “angels.” Angels are divine messengers sent from God. So I call the seven stars (to the seven churches) Star-Angels. But the woman has five more Star-Angels than the man. So, these five Illustrations are of importance. Two of them point to the first advent of Christ, four to the second advent of Christ, and one to the third advent of Christ.
The Star-Angels in Illustrations 1 and 2 are Christ Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy. In the second Illustration, CHRIST HEALING, the Morning Star shines its light down upon Christ Jesus (the masculine representative of the Christ) and Mary Baker Eddy (the feminine representative of the Christ). The light is brightest upon Jesus. Notice the man of ecclesiastical despotism is objecting to the resurrection of Womanhood. The Star-Angel in Illustration 3 and Illustration 6 is Mary Baker Eddy.
In SEEKING AND FINDING we see Mary Baker Eddy in 1874 during the first transit of Venus across the sun, symbolically the time when Venus is “clothed with the sun”. Now the light is bright upon her, as she is God’s second chosen witness. The Grandmother clock is set at 12:05 pointing us to the Woman God-crowned Keystone of WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK and Revelation 12:1-5 which is about the woman God-crowned.
The serpent is behind the woman attempting to impede her spiritual progress bringing forth the spiritual idea. But it fails, as we see Mary Baker Eddy healing in Illustration 6 via CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING. The light around her has grown even more brilliant as…
…the Morning Star shines down upon her. I feel that this Illustration represents the second transit of Venus across the sun during Mary Baker Eddy’s God-crowned mission which took place in June 1882. Remember it takes eight years for Venus to form its five points in heaven. It is in one of the verses for this sixth Illustration that there is mention of Sharon’s rose, which must bud and bloom in human heart. (Below is a picture of the flower Sharon’s Rose, notice it has five petals.)
…Who is it that discovers Sharon’s Rose matrix for Christ and Christmas and WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK? It is Martha-Sharon-Dinah, the Star-Angel in Illustration 7 (generic man – male and female as one).
…The Grandfather clock points to Revelation 5:1-5 where the Lamb of God (spiritual idea) is found with a sealed book (a closed book). In the early editions of the poem book it was easy to see wisps of hidden serpents upon the closed BIBLE. Notice that in both clocks the verses are for verse 1 to verse 5.
So, going back to SEEKING AND FINDING we have the BIBLE as an open book. It was Mary Baker Eddy who opened up the BIBLE and wrote copious notes upon Scripture. This is the ONLY Illustration where the BIBLE is an open book! In this Illustration there is no SCIENCE AND HEALTH yet, it would not be published until 1875, the year after the first transit of Venus. It was Mary Baker Eddy’s God-crowned mission to unseal the BIBLE. As mentioned before, the talking serpent and its wisps of hidden serpents are behind her, attempting to impede her spiritual progress. So why would the BIBLE be closed in Illustration 7 – “SUFFER THE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME” when it follows SEEKING AND FINDING? In Illustration seven (Love) the BIBLE is locked up, a sealed book (with the serpent wisps sitting on top – making it a locked up book [the BIBLE is not spiritually understood by mainstream Christianity (the old man who sees through a glass darkly)]) The reason why the BIBLE is a sealed book in this Illustration is to symbolize the fact that the BIBLE remains a sealed, or closed book until the “little book open” – SCIENCE AND HEALTH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURE (a key unlocks something that is closed up) – is opened up (unlocked or unsealed). Since the book which is open in this Illustration is THE KEY to the closed book – the BIBLE – we must first unlock SCIENCE AND HEALTH. The KEY must be read, the Word of God must be mentally digested and assimilated, once this is done material error begins to become eliminated. The KEY is not applied to the BIBLE until generic man is willing to open up SCIENCE AND HEALTH and read it. The first transit of Venus, for the third advent of Christ, took place in June 2014, and I feel that this transit is symbolized by the seventh Illustration in Christ and Christmas. This was the year after the book The De Vinci Code was published and the year before the movie about the book was released. What was this story about? It was about symbols, keys, and most importantly, the feminine representative of the Christ, which I think is the true meaning behind the sacred feminine! I did not see the movie until it aired on TV. Its message was of upmost importance to me, as I comprehended what its message was really about – Mary Baker Eddy as the second coming of Christ. Another Key is understanding and knowing who Mary Baker Eddy is – her place in Bible prophecy – she as the angel of Revelation 10, she as the second coming of Christ, she as the woman God-crowned, and she as the Bride City. After seeing the movie I got a copy of the book and found out that it was even better in bringing forth its hidden message. I was the one who was to explain Mary Baker Eddy to the world via my website, as it launched on June 5, 2012, when the second transit of Venus took place. This second transit of Venus, I feel, is depicted as Illustration 10 – TRUTH versus ERROR, as there is a girl embracing her own manhood (manchild) looking out the window at the Woman knocking upon their house (consciousness) of affliction. There is no sign (symbol) needed of an actual Star at this point in the book because the Woman herself is the Star-Angel (the Christ Light). At this time (2012) Martha-Sharon-Dinah still sees this Woman as the second coming of Christ.
Eventually she will understand that this woman is also the third coming of Christ.
In The Da Vinci Code the albino is searching for a keystone. Well, the true keystone, I feel, is the Woman God-crowned Keystone found in WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK – in the original Boston Edifice. In The Da Vinci Code there are many keystones. In the original Boston Edifice there are many keystones too.
Mary Baker Eddy spoke of the three advents of Christ. She gave them the names of Jesus, Mary (Baker Eddy – but in The Da Vinci Code the second coming of Christ is presented as being Agent Sophie Neveu), and Martha (Agent Sophie Neveu really represents the third coming of Christ as generic man, as its story takes place during Martha’s life time). Now, let us go to the fourth Gospel, the book of St. John (in The Da Vinci Code St. John is thought to be presented in Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting The Last Supper as being Jesus’ wife Mary Magdalene). The Gospel of John presents the tone of Science itself, the fourth living creature to the divine infinite calculus. Its elemental symbol is that of water. Although Aquarius is the symbol for Christianity (the face of a man) he is a water bearer, thus with Aquarius we have Christianity connected to Science! The symbol of water is used throughout St. John. At the wedding Jesus even turns the water into wine and later Jesus uses wine as a symbol for his blood. Upon the cross when Jesus bleeds it is described as blood and water – wine and water. (I go into more detail into the meaning of this in my post – AS IT IS “Spiritual teaching must always be by symbols”.) Also, in St. John, is the family from Bethany, one definition of Bethany means “house of affliction”. So to me this means “consciousness of affliction.” In SCIENCE AND HEALTH 586:13 is the definition of fire. Now fire is the elemental symbol for the Word of God. Mary Baker Eddy defines fire (in part) as “affliction purifying and elevating man.” Mary Baker Eddy also tells us that “Bride” means “Purity and innocence, conceiving man in the idea of God: a sense of Soul, which has spiritual bliss and enjoys but cannot suffer.” (S&H 582:14) She also tells us elsewhere that the Bride is the Word. So, it is this Word of God as the Bride consciousness which comes as “affliction purifying and elevating man.” Now, Lazarus is well known because he was resurrected from death by Jesus. Yet, does not Lazarus, even though he has a different name, symbolize Jesus’ own God-crowned mission where he must resurrect himself from death? Does not this mean, in this case, that Lazarus of Bethany symbolizes the first advent of Christ as Jesus (the masculine representative)? Lazarus has two sisters named Mary and Martha. Do not Mary and Martha of Bethany symbolize the second and third advents of Christ as Mary Baker Eddy (the feminine representative) and Martha-Sharon-Dinah (the generic man representative)? What this would mean is that Jesus Christ came to present to mankind God as Father-Life, Mary Baker Eddy came to present to mankind God as Mother of a manchild-Truth (Christian Science), and Martha-Sharon-Dinah comes to present to mankind God as Father-Mother-Love.
Finally, in Mother’s Room, in the original Boston Edifice, there are three windows sort of taken from Christ and Christmas. They represent, again, the three advents of Christ with – STAR OF BETHLEHEM-BOSTON, T’IS THE SAME HAND THAT WRITES THE PAGE (modeled after SEEKING AND FINDING), and “SUFFER THE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME.” Each window has a Star-Flower of divine Science in it.
…These Star-Flowers look like the flower “Star of Bethlehem” only they have seven petals instead of six. So, these Star-Flowers are also Star of Boston flowers. Along with these three Star-Flowers are the seven Star-Flowers in WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK’S final (its twelfth) Keystone. This makes ten Star-Flowers. There are two more seven pointed stars in the church, even though they are not flowers. These two seven pointed stars are seen in the auditorium’s Skylight (directly below) and in the Vestry. (There is a mistake in the text that was published along with this photograph of the Skylight [from a calendar]. It uses the words “stained glass”. The windows in the little Edifice were painted glass, they were not stained glass.)
…This makes for a total of twelve Star-Angels in the original Edifice. There is also, of course, the twelve stars upon the woman’s crown in the Woman God-crowned Keystone window (on the South side) and the WOMAN GOD-CROWNED window itself (on the West side). Notice how there are seven Stars on the top row and five Stars on the bottom row.
This ends what I wrote in the post.
In Christ and Christmas there is importance to the manner in which arms and hands are drawn. While watching the movie, Robert Langdon held his hands like the shape of a pyramid. This shape is for the masculine blade. It dawned on me that, to some extent, his arms and hands resembled a person in prayer. Now the woman in CHRIST HEALING has her fingers folded together, they do not form a blade pyramid shape. Is this because the woman, Mary Baker Eddy, is not prepared to recognize her own manhood at the time of her CHRIST HEALING? The next time we see this symbol is in CHRISTMAS MORN.
One angel is holding her hands in this fashion. Originally Mary Baker Eddy wanted three angels depicted. I feel that the three angels were to represent the three advents of Christ. Eventually she settled on just two angels. I see these two angels, not as being the two witnesses of Revelation 11 as many Christian Scientists see them, but rather as Mary and Martha – Mary Baker Eddy representing Michael (masculine Truth) and Martha representing Gabriel (feminine Love). Michael is the one with hands in prayer while Gabriel holds the little book, the Key, in her right (masculine) hand. These two angels are later symbolized as the two women Sentinels that Mary Baker Eddy places on the cover of the Sentinel in 1906.
The final time (third time) we see hands in prayer is in CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING. The woman in the background is praying. But what struck me about this is that not only does it present the masculine blade but it also presents two feminine cups (Holy Grails) with the right and left arms, or a W shape. The W could stand for Womanhood, and if you turn the book upside down the W becomes an M for Manhood (or perhaps Mary or Martha?).
In SEEKING AND FINDING Mary Baker Eddy’s left (feminine) arm forms the shape of the feminine cup. In CHRISTMAS EVE the youngest girl’s two arms also form two feminine cups.
Now let us look at another shape of arms in these Illustrations. In CHRIST HEALING the woman in the coffin (who I feel is Mary Baker Eddy) has her right (masculine) arm in a right angle – symbolizing the right angle of thought process needed in Christian Science, or square thinking. Jesus’ left (feminine) arm, even though it is hard to see from the viewpoint the arm is drawn in, is also at a right angle. Again, in SEEKING AND FINDING, the right arm is pretty much at a right angle. In CHRISTMAS EVE we have a man (Adam?), his left arm seems to also be at a right angle, however, in his right hand he holds a woman doll and he is pointing at her skirt (dress), so I am not sure that we can accept that this man’s thinking is square (a right angle). In CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING Mary Baker Eddy’s right arm is at a right angle. In “SUFFER THE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME” Martha-Sharon-Dinah’s left arm is at a right angle, I also feel that her right arm is also at a right angle. The old man’s right arm is also a right angle. In TREATING THE SICK the woman’s left arm is at a right angle while her right arm forms a feminine cup. In CHRISTIAN UNITY Jesus’ right arm and Mary Baker Eddy’s left arm are at right angles. Jesus’ left arm and Mary Baker Eddy’s right arms are joined and form a U shape – for Unity or Union. While in CHRIST HEALING Mary’s left arm and Jesus’ right arm connect forming an ‘n’ shape – perhaps meaning a joint or intersection.
…In TRUTH versus ERROR the girl’s left arm seems to be at a right angle also. Other women seem to have there arms forming the feminine cup, in their case I say that these feminine cups represent their vaginas (A church vestry is symbolic of a woman’s vagina.). These women are adulterers.
Returning to The Da Vinci Code I think it is important to remember that the story is fiction. Yet, its message and symbols are of importance to understand, and the timing of it cannot be overlooked in that it came around the first transit of Venus across the sun – a symbol of the woman God-crowned in Revelation 12. It is St. John who is supposed to have written the book of Revelation (which present spiritual visions given to John while he was on the Island of Patmos). The same John is reported as being placed next to Jesus’ right side in The Last Supper. The name John represents divine Science, the dove. As I previously mentioned, in The Da Vinci Code the characters claim that John is really Mary Magdalene.
I do not think that Jesus married Mary Magdalene because he warned women against marriage and giving birth to children via sex. Even if Jesus and Mary were married and did have a child and their child had children, then how much Sang Real (Christ blood, or DNA) would remain in the descendants after two thousand years of intermarriage with corporeal beings? I refuse to admit that Jesus’ power of healing came from his “royal blood”! To think that healing power comes from blood (a material element found in a corporeal body) is a ridiculous concept! Jesus did not even ask his disciples to drink his real blood, but a symbol of his blood (wine). Jesus knew that material blood was not the true source of Life. If he had thought that material blood had power he would never have been able to have cured the woman of her blood issue, nor could he have resurrected. No, the Christ Link must be along mental lines not material DNA. It is God’s choice as to who is the first coming, the second coming, and third coming of Christ. It is not the result of material parents having the “right stuff” in their DNA. The mistake of the Christian Science Church hierarchy is that they have presented false propaganda that Mary Baker Eddy was not chosen by God, that she is nothing special. Their explanation for her discovery of Christian Science is that she climbed the hill (or mountain) and got to the top before anyone else did. They further claim that if anyone else would have reached the top of the hill before she did then they would have discovered Christian Science. This is scholastic theology and bogus thinking. It is anti-Christ (red dragon) propaganda!
So when the characters mention the Rose Line, the Compass Rose, the Wind Rose, etc. these “roses” symbolically are speaking of the city of our God (Christian Science) in Revelation. This city, along with the city foursquare [divine Science]) is depicted in WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK and Sharon’s Rose Matrix (for Christ and Christmas).
…In The Da Vinci Code (from this point on I will abbreviate it as TDVC) the Rose Line is described as “the zero longitude,” which originally ran through Paris and the Church of St. Sulpice (featured as being where Silas [the albino monk murderer] goes to locate the Keystone). St. Sulpice was built over an ancient temple where the Egyptian goddess Isis was worshiped.
Page 114 of TDVC reads: “For centuries, the symbol of the Rose had been associated with maps and guiding souls in the proper direction. The Compass Rose – drawn on almost every map – indicated North, East, South, and West.” Mary Baker Eddy basically explains that these four cardinal points symbolize the divine infinite calculus. In describing the city foursquare she writes: “The four sides of our city are the Word, Christ, Christianity, and divine Science; ‘and the gates [the twelve Stargates] of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.’ This city is wholly spiritual, as its four sides indicate.
“As the Psalmist saith, ‘Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.’ It is indeed a city of the Spirit, fair, royal, and square. Northward, its gates open to the North Star, the Word, the polar magnet of Revelation [where the Open Bible Keystone is found]; eastward, to the [Day]star  seen by the Wisemen of the Orient, who followed it to the manger of Jesus [where the Madonna and Child Keystone is found] ; southward, to the genial tropics, with the Southern Cross in the skies, – the Cross of Calvary, which binds human society into solemn union [where the Cross of Calvary Keystone is found]; westward, to the grand realization of the Golden Shore of Love and the Peaceful Sea of Harmony [Keystone]. ” (S&H 575:17-576:2 [My interpolations.])
So when she describes the city of our God (which is really the city foursquare) it is easy to see how the divine infinite calculus fits in. There is really only one city, but it has different levels to it. The city foursquare is the level of divine Science while the city of our God is the level of Christian Science. “This spiritual, holy habitation has no boundary nor limit, but its four cardinal points are: first [North], the Word of Life, Truth, and Love; second [East], the Christ, the spiritual idea of God; third [South] Christianity, which is the outcome of the divine Principle of the Christ-idea in Christian history; fourth [West], Christian Science, which to-day and forever interprets this great example and the great Exemplar. This city of our God has no need of sun or satellite [moon], for Love is the light of it, and divine Mind is its own interpreter.” (S&H 577:12-21 [My interpolations.])
What I find humorous, is that when Dan Brown speaks about Da Vinci’s painting Madonna of the Rocks, there is no mention of the angel Uriel being a keeper of the key. Yet it is behind this painting where Sophia finds her grandfather’s key to the Depository Bank of Zurich at 24 Rue Haxo. Inside the Depository is a box made of Rosewood with a five-petaled rose on the lid. Inside is the Keystone (or the cryptex) that Silas is really looking for. What is the true key that all of us need to have? It is SCIENCE AND HEALTH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, by Mary Baker Eddy. Getting back to the painting, it is described as matching “the topography of a series of cave-ridden hills in Scotland.” (p. 183) Mary Baker Eddy’s family were from Scotland.
So the symbol of the rose is of importance, it is a symbol of secrecy (sub rosa) “whatever was said under the rose–or sub rosa–had to remain secret…Rosa rugosa, one of the oldest species of rose, had five petals and pentagonal symmetry, just like the guiding star of Venus, giving the Rose strong iconographic ties to womanhood. In addition, the Rose had close ties to the concept of ‘true direction’ and navigating one’s way…The Compass Rose helped travelers navigate, as did Rose Lines, the longitudinal lines on maps. For this reason, the Rose was a symbol that spoke of the Grail on many levels–secrecy, womanhood, and guidance–the feminine chalice and guiding star that led to secret truth.” (TDVC p. 219-220) WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK is a Compass Rose!
For this reason alone, the Rose Window on the South Side of the original Boston Edifice is of great importance and sub (a secret concealed by the) rosa is found in its matrix structure of the divine infinite calculus.
Mary Baker Eddy spoke of having hid something in her Textbook (the Key). She remarked that she had hidden it and hidden it and hidden it and if she hid it any more it would be lost. In other words, no one would be able to uncover the hidden Truth about her secret place in Bible prophecy. Some Christian Scientists think she was speaking of the matrix structure of the Textbook, but this is not what she had to hide. As you can see the divine infinite calculus is not invisible, it is explained in the above quotes about the Holy City quite well! So what she really had to hide is the fact that she was the second coming of Christ. If she had not hid it she would not have said that the second coming of Christ is Christian Science. The second coming of Christ is Christian Science (she did not lie) because it is the teaching that came during the second advent of Christ. “Christ. The divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error (S&H 583:10).” So, the Christ must be manifested in the flesh, so the second coming had to be represented as a human (not as a book or as books) so that incarnate error would be destroyed. If Mary Baker Eddy was not hiding her secret from the world she would have admitted that she was the second coming of Christ instead of stating that the second coming of Christ is Christian Science. One example of this hiding process was in regards to her portrait found at the beginning of SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES (which has been permanently removed by the red dragon in Boston). In her chapter “The Apocalypse” when she originally spoke about the woman God-crowned she used the word vignette. One definition of vignette is “a picture (as an engraving or photograph) that shades off gradually into the surrounding ground or the unprinted paper” (Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary). This is a perfect description of her portrait found at the front of her book!
…Thus, when she used the word vignette she was speaking about herself being the woman God-crowned. But later on she hid this fact by rewording the paragraph about the woman God-crowned. Yet, anyone who has access to the older editions of the Textbook, if knowing the true meaning of what they were reading, would be able to figure out that she was speaking about herself as being the woman God-crowned with the use of the word vignette.
In TDVC the Keystone is white and needs a five letter word to unlock it. The white color represents the female. But in this case, I will say, it represents the Madonna Bride, for inside was a smaller cryptex which was black (for male) representing the Child, or the Christ manchild. The word to unlock the white Madonna Keystone is SOFIA, ancient Greek for wisdom. And the main female character Sophie means sofia, wisdom. Yet, what of the black cryptex? Is it really masculine, or is the child, of Mary Baker Eddy (our Madonna), really generic man – the girl seen in “SUFFER THE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME”? In history we have the black Madonna and the white Madonna. The white Madonna was supposed to be the Virgin Mary while the black Madonna was supposed to be Mary Magdalene.
The five letter word for opening up the black cryptex is APPLE. What fruit is often thought of as being a symbol of wisdom? It is the apple. Apple blossoms are related to the rose family! My mom’s mother’s name is Rosemary. On my father’s side, my grandmother’s secret married name is Smith (as in Granny Smith Apple) I say secret because Smith was at one time my grandfather’s adopted sir name.
So what kind of keystones are found in the original Boston Edifice? Well, there are the twelve keystones in WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK, there is a La clef de voute (see page 221 of TDVC) in the Immanuel Arch (which has a circle inside of it),
…In WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK there are two clef keystones. The two clef keystones are of the Woman God-crowned (Mary Baker Eddy) Keystone and the Lord (Jesus) and Lamb (spiritual idea) Keystone.
…The keystone that Silas and Teabing are searching for is “an encoded map…a map that reveals the hiding place of the Holy Grail” (Ibid). It is quite possible that the grail is actually a measuring cup, so the Holy Grail would be a divine type of measuring, as in a Scientific matrix system. In the story, inside the black cryptex, is the map (or rather a verse of words) that leads Robert and Sophie to a Church in Scotland. However, at the end of the story Robert finds what he believes to be the true location of the Holy Grail (Mary Magdalene’s coffin).
On page 222 of TDVC is my favorite paragraph from the whole book. It reads: “For the last decade, historians had been searching for the keystone in French churches. Grail seekers, familiar with the Priory’s history of cryptic double-talk, had concluded la clef de voute was a literal keystone–an architectural wedge–an engraved, encrypted stone, inserted into a vaulted archway in a church. Beneath the sign of the Rose. In architecture, there was no shortage of roses. Rose windows. Rosette reliefs. And, of course, an abundance of cinquefoils–the five-petaled decorative flowers often found at the top of archways, directly over the keystone. The hiding place seemed diabolically simple. The map to the Holy Grail was incorporated high in an archway of some forgotten church, mocking the blind churchgoers who wandered beneath it.”
I will now tell you why I love this paragraph. It is because it is speaking of the little original Edifice in Boston, but the author, whose main character is from Boston, is unaware of what he is even telling the world! For the last decade would have been 1994 to 2004, or there about. This is the same time that I was beginning to understand the symbols of the Boston Edifice and comparing them to the Illustrations in Christ and Christmas. I was beginning my journey with the Major Pyramid Matrix of Truth, the Unity Matrix (or Stargate) and how they worked together. It was the Rose Window, WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK, that really interested me. However, at first I worked with the Keystones going in a clockwise order, as you would see them from outside the church (as depicted in my painting below). I felt that this was the right order, and yet, I would eventually find out that they had to run in a counterclockwise order, just as Venus spins in a counterclockwise order!
There are actually two Rose Windows in the little edifice. On the North Side is JESUS’ RAISING JAIRUS’ DAUGHTER. It has no Stars.
The Boston Edifice is also full of rose reliefs. So, it is WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK that is really the KEY to opening up the little book spoken of in Revelation 10, the same book depicted in the hub of the DIRECTOR’S WINDOW (WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK) as being open. All who came before me did not understand what the DIRECTOR’S WINDOW was depicting, even though they thought they had it right, for the hiding place of the Woman God-crowned is “diabolically simple. The map to the Holy Grail was incorporated high in an archway of some forgotten church [due to the Extension], mocking the blind churchgoers who wandered beneath it.” Those blind churchgoers are the Christian Scientists who fail to recognize their Leader’s place in Bible prophecy as the second coming of Christ, a.k.a., the woman God-crowned. This secret has been hidden to mainstream Christian Scientists and the world. Who has hidden the Truth? The churchgoers themselves because of their denials of Mary Baker Eddy. (WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK is also called the DIRECTOR’S WINDOW because the four directors paid for the window, however, I call it the DIRECTOR’S WINDOW because the four true Directors happen to be the divine infinite calculus of the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science.)
Now looking at the Keystone found on the Immanuel Arch there is found a circle inside the Keystone. If we inter into Mother’s Room there is a similar circle on the fireplace mantel.
…Is it possible that the mantel is a hidden clue that Mary Baker Eddy (our Mother in Israel) carries on the mantle of Jesus? In CHRIST HEALING the mantle that Jesus is wearing is black. In the first CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING (see above) Mary Baker Eddy’s mantle is dark, but in the second CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING her mantle is white. Of course, in Christ and Christmas black and white do not symbolize male or female but rather the First Degree (black) and Third Degree (white) she writes about in S&H 115 and 116.
In CHRISTIAN UNITY Jesus’ mantle is still dark, however, he is no longer wearing it as it is draped over his lap. Does this not suggest that Jesus’ mantle is transferred over to Mary Baker Eddy because she is the second coming of Christ?
Jesus’ divinity is. Even though Jesus was just a man, as TDVC puts it, he was much more. Jesus was the human and divine coincidence. Jesus was the manifestation of God who first came in the flesh (the human) as Christ (the divine) to destroy incarnate error. Jesus was born during the Age of Pieces. Where the Roman Church went wrong was in turning Jesus into God. Jesus never made the claim that he was or is God. Jesus, as the Christ ideal, was able to say, “I [Jesus] and my Father [God] are one.” Mary Baker Eddy, as the Christ ideal, was able to say, “Principle [God] and its idea [divine man, or the Christ] is one.” [My interpolations.] Jesus statement gives us the human and divine coincidence via the word “are”. Through this coincidence the human and divine are one in nature (not quality). Mary Baker Eddy’s statement gives us the fact of God and Christ being one in nature (singular in quality for there is no quantity involved here). Also, what she gives us is an impersonal God and impersonal Christ – for how can Principle or idea be personalized? On page 254 (TDVC) it says: “Nobody is saying Christ was a fraud, or denying that He [should read “he” because Jesus is not God] walked the earth and inspired millions to better lives. All we are saying is that Constantine took advantage of Christ’s [should read Jesus’] substantial influence and importance. And in doing so, he [Constantine] shaped the face of Christianity as we know it today.” Yet, the true face of Christianity, the face of a man, is different today if one reads “the little book open.” For Science has explained Christ Jesus to the world (which could be another reason why Jesus’ mantle is off in CHRISTIAN UNITY). Roman Catholicism no longer has power over Christians because their fabricated teaching that Jesus is God has been exposed and unmasked. By the way, the reason why the Roman emperor turned Jesus into God is so that, as Jesus’ successor, he, as Pope, could become God, or at least ruler over all Christians! He took on the name of Pope (Papa, Father), he became Christianity’s false god. Yet Jesus told us, “Call no man on earth your Father.” Only God (Spirit) can be our Father. Only God (Spirit) can be our Mother. Jesus brought forth the understanding that God is man’s Father (Life) and Mary Baker Eddy brought forth the understanding that God is man’s Mother (Love).
“The Latin word haereticus means ‘choice.’ Those who ‘chose’ the original history of Christ [Jesus] were the world’s first heretics” (TDVC, p. 254; [My interpolation.]). Are those who choose the true history about Mary Baker Eddy over church history about Mary Baker Eddy also called heretics and then excommunicated? The true history about Mary Baker Eddy is the Holy Grail, it is what the hierarchy chooses to destroy. “The Grail is symbolic of the lost goddess…Knights who claimed to be ‘searching for the chalice’ were speaking in code as a way to protect themselves from a church that had subjugated woman, banished the Goddess, burned nonbelievers, and forbidding the pagan reverence for the sacred feminine…It is [an actual human – Mary Baker Eddy]! A woman who carried with her a secret so powerful that, if revealed, it threatened [as far as the Church was concerned] to devastate the very foundation of Christianity.” (TDVC, p. 259; [My interpolations.])
The true story about the second coming of Christ as the sacred feminine is Bible prophecy – found in the book of Revelation. Mary Baker Eddy was not, or is not, a goddess, but her God-crowned mission is a divine mission, one that a goddess would be expected to perform. Many Christians believe that the woman God-crowned is the Virgin Mary, or Mary Magdalene. Today many Christian Scientists deny that the woman God-crowned is Mary Baker Eddy. The second coming of Christ was not able to come until the world was ready to comprehend Christian Science. In TDVC it says that Mary Magdalene (supposed to be of a royal Israelite bloodline – Benjamin) was the one who Jesus said would carry on the Christian Church, not Peter. I do not disagree that this is possible, but I say the Christian Church carries on today, not as the Roman Catholic or mainstream Christian churches, but as the woman’s church known as The Church of Christ Scientist, Mary Baker Eddy’s Church. And her Church is not really carried on by the material organization by that name, with its head being located in Boston, but it is carried on by the Independent BRANCH. I read somewhere that when speaking of the building of Christ’s church, the word Petra was used by Jesus. Mary Baker Eddy uses the word petros in S&H 137:31. Petros is the masculine form of Peter while petra is the feminine form for Peter, which means stone. The divine infinite calculus (reckoning) is said to be this “stone.” If Jesus really did use the feminine form of Peter then was this not a clue that Jesus’ real church would come from a woman instead of a man? It is a true fact that Peter was never in Rome, so how could he be the founder of the Roman Catholic Church? The first Christian church was actually built in England. This tells me that Jesus’ church, which is to be built upon a rock, was Bible prophecy.
Mary Baker Eddy tells us that “Jesus purposed founding his society [she uses the word “society” instead of “church”], not on the personal Peter as a mortal, but on the God-power which lay behind Peter’s confession of the true Messiah.” (S&H 138:2-5; [My interpolation.]) Which was “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God!” “That is: The Messiah is what thou hast declared, – Christ, the spirit of God, of Truth, Life, and Love, which heals mentally. This assertion elicited from Jesus the benediction, ‘Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona [Son of the dove (divine Science)]: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven;’ that is, Love hath shown thee the way of Life!” (S&H 137:17-25; [My interpolation.])
TDVC (p. 276) tells us that Mary Magdalene travels to Gaul (France) with Jesus’ uncle Joseph of Arimathea. While there she gives birth to Jesus’ daughter. This daughter is given the name Sarah (Princess). I know that Mary and Joseph of Arimathea did travel to Gaul, and Joseph later went to the British Isles, home of the ten lost tribes of Israel. Jesus’ mother was also supposed to have been with Joseph. From what I have read, I believe that they all remained in that area of the world and never returned to Jerusalem, but I could be wrong. It is quite possible that Joseph did return off and on as he was a merchant with ships. Brown writes that Jesus wrote his own story down called the “Q” Document, a record of his own ministry and that there were also documents called the Magdalene Diaries. That these documents were found in “four chests” and that they “were the treasure that the Knights Templar found under Solomon’s Temple.” (TDVC, p. 277) I ask why they would have been placed in Jerusalem when Mary Magdalene and Jesus’ mother and uncle were in France and England? To me this does not even make sense! Further more, I doubt that Jesus’ “Q” Document would have been buried underneath the Temple where the priests had rejected his teachings! But since the book is fiction I will give Dan Brown the prerogative to have these documents located under Solomon’s Temple.
On page 278 Brown writes: “Christ’s line grew quietly under cover in France until making a bold move in the fifth century, when it intermarried with French royal blood and created a lineage known as the Merovingian bloodline [who founded Paris].” And that there was a family tree drawn of the families. The only two remaining families are said to be “Plantard and Saint-Clair” (TDVC, p. 280-281). I do not deny that such families exist, but I do deny that they are of Jesus’ bloodline, as I am really positive he would have never gotten married as he saw the fallacies in doing so.
“Pisces” is “the fish goddess” (TDVC, p. 279). Yet, there are two fish. Are not these two fish symbolic representations of the two comings of Christ as the masculine representative Jesus and the feminine representative Mary Baker Eddy? The two fishes together symbolize CHRISTIAN UNITY. Both advents take place during the Age of Pisces. Eden Gray, in A Complete Guide to the Tarot, says it was thought that the Age of Aquarius began in 1882 (this is the same exact year that Venus transited the sun for the second time during Mary Baker Eddy’s God-crowned mission). I am not so sure that this is correct, however, I am willing to believe it could be. Yet, when I looked up when the Age of Aquarius was supposed to begin on the Internet it did not give an exact date! This seems mysterious to me because we now live in a computer age, how the astronomers and astrologers could not calculate the beginning of the Age of Aquarius is the mystery to me. It is possible, as Dan Brown implies, it was supposed to begin with the new millennium, however, I have found no proof of this. Then again, many people felt the Age of Aquarius began in the 1960’s! Which is true – 1882, 1969 (I choose this particular year because Apollo 11 launched on July 16, Mary Baker Eddy’s birthday, 1969. This moon mission has many symbols relating to the woman God-crowned who has her feet upon the moon.), 2000, or some later year, like 2012? Which ever is right, the endtime was also supposed to take place when the Age of Aquarius began. The endtime is the end of days, as some call it. Would not the end of days be the Seventh Day of Love spoken of at the very beginning of Genesis 2? The end of the Seven Days to be exact. I calculate that the Seventh Day of Love began on June 6, 1996. This I calculated by using BIBLE information. However, perhaps we cannot go by the calendar as to when the Seventh Day begins because it is really not a matter of time but has to do with mankind’s spiritual conscious awakening. Or rather, when man fully wakes up from the Adam dream (the BIBLE never states that Adam woke up).
What does the Age of Aquarius, the water bearer, really mean symbolically? Aquarius represents the third living creature who has the face of a man. The third living creature is for the tone of Christianity, yet, he is a water bearer. Water is the elemental symbol for Science. So we have Aquarius being the Age when Christianity (face of a man, or the true identity of man, which is spiritual) is brought forth by God’s Truth, which is Science (the flying eagle). And I can honestly say that this has been taking place since February 4, 1864. But the corporeal world resists TRUTH!!!
“As any astrological symbologist will tell you, the Piscean ideal believes that man must be told what to do by higher powers because man is incapable of thinking for himself.” (TDVC, p. 289-290). I believe that this is what the Roman Catholic Church believes! Yet, Mary Baker Eddy tells us on the first page of her “Preface”: “The time for thinkers has come.” How many Christian Scientists consider themselves to be thinkers? How many of them cow-tow to the Boston Board of Directors and say in their Branch Church meetings, “We must ask Boston what they think about this! We need to ask them what we should do”? Any Branch Church member who utters these types of words is not obeying their Leader Mary Baker Eddy, they are not thinkers!!! They are stuck in Romanism or ecclesiastical despotic dictatorship. If they think that they should not read John W. Doorly’s work or any of his student’s work, or even Augusta Stetson’s books, because Boston says that they are not “approved literature” then they are not being thinkers! They are only sheep following a goat into the slaughter house of mortal minded material organization called church. And those who are obeying the hierarchy’s demand that they read only “authorized literature” are being handled by fear.
“Now, however, we are entering the Age of Aquarius – the water bearer – whose ideals claim that man will learn the truth [know the Truth] and be able to think for himself. The ideological shift is enormous, and it is occurring right now.” (TDVC, p. 290; [My interpolation.])
Wow, think about this statement! Dan Brown is actually speaking Truth here – that man, God’s ideal, must be a thinker! And once he is a thinker he becomes a doer. He too will do the works of Christ – he will cast out demons (sins), heal the sick, cleanse the lepers (terminally ill), and raise the dead!
Getting back to the box with the rose on top. Robert finds that the rose pops off the lid. Once he does this he finds that there is writing underneath where the rose was located. What is interesting about this is that he cannot read the writing, he thinks it is a foreign language. In the book it is written on paper, in the movie it is engraved upon a metal plate. Like Sophie, I would have recognized the writing immediately as being English. Why? Because when I was in college I taught myself how to write backwards in cursive. This was do to two things in my life. One was that I learned that Leonardo Da Vinci wrote backwards, the other was that in the movie The Great Houdinis a woman, thinking she was medium, wrote backwards while under her so-called trance. I wanted to prove that anyone could write backwards, that it was not do to anything related to spiritualism. And I knew that if Leonardo Da Vinci was able to do it then I could do it also. So the clue was, “an ancient word of wisdom [Sofia] frees this scroll [book] and helps us keep her scattere’d family whole [complete; the compound man] a headstone [capstone] praised by templars is the key [to the Scriptures] and atbash [the Eddy writings] will reveal the truth [Truth] to thee.” (TDVC, p. 328; [My interpolations.])
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z (regular alphabet)
Z Y X W V U T S R Q P O N M L K J I H G F E D C B A (atbash alphabet replacing the regular letters of the alphabet – example: to spell the word APPLE, you would spell it as – ZKKOV)
One could say that atbash is going in the opposite direction, like as an Eddy, in a counterclockwise order!
After opening the white cryptex they found a lambskin inside with another clue. The lambskin was wrapped around the black cryptex. Is not this lambskin symbolic that the manchild is the Lamb of God spoken of in Revelation 5? On p. 364 is the new message:
“In London lies a knight A Pope intered.
His labor’s fruit a Holy wrath incurred
You seek the orb that ought to be on his tomb.
It speaks of Rosy flesh and seeded womb.”
Of course, the knight is Sir Isaac Newton, A Pope is Alexander Pope and the fruit with the Rosy flesh and seeded womb is the apple, claimed to have incurred a Holy wrath because it was eaten in the Garden of Eden by Adam and Eve. There is no proof whatsoever that the fruit that Adam and Eve actually ate was an apple. Needless to say, that the clue to opening up the black cryptex (manchild) is the word APPLE.
The characters of the book are now in England and Brown mentions the Millennium Eye. This is a five-hundred foot high Ferris wheel. In the Tarot is the card called WHEEL OF FORTUNE. Notice that the letters TARO (short for Tarot) also spell ROTA (for rotate).
I prefer to call it the WHEEL OF PROPHECY. Ferris means “Peter”. And Peter, or Petra, is the true foundation of the church society. Again, we have the circular symbol coming into play, especially that of the wheel, and the first church they go to is also circular. The Extension in Boston is also circular, Mary Baker Eddy called it “the crown.” Where do we find the true crown in the original Edifice? We find it as WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK and in the WOMAN GOD-CROWNED window.
On page 420 the topic of Tarot cards comes up. Brown explains to his readers that Tarot cards were used to explain the sacred feminine, because the Roman Church forbid such teachings, they (the men) did not like the idea of women being important. He also explains how they relate to modern playing cards. The following is partially from TDVC (p. 366).
First living creature is the Word (Leo the lion) – Wands become Clubs – the royal line, the flowering staff – element of fire
Second living creature is the Christ (Taurus the bull or ox) – Pentacles become Diamonds – specifically, the goddess, the sacred feminine, however, Jesus was the first coming of Christ, there must be a balance of masculine and feminine – element of earth
Third living creature is Christianity (Aquarius – face of a man) – Swords become Spades – the feminine chalice – element of air
Fourth living creature is Science (Scorpio the flying eagle) – Cups become Hearts – the masculine blade – element of water
While it is true that the cards do tell the story of the sacred feminine, which is about the woman God-crowned, Tarot cards were used to speak of Bible prophecy, about the second coming of Christ, specifically the book of Revelation. THE HIGH PRIESTESS and THE EMPRESS cards depict the woman God-crowned.
There are also two cards that symbolize the angel of Revelation 10, as well as, Aquarius. (TEMPERANCE is actually the card for Cancer, Mary Baker Eddy’s sign, yet it is undeniably linked to THE STAR card, which actually is the card for Aquarius.)
It is a fact that John represented the four living creatures as zodiac constellations (Ezekiel did the same). The four living creatures are also found in the Tarot – the WHEEL OF FORTUNE (which you have already seen) and THE WORLD or THE UNIVERSE card.
…It is also a fact that the off-white (the color of a slug) horseman of Revelation 6 represents Sagittarius. The white horseman of Revelation 19 is not the off-white horseman of Revelation 6.
I find it interesting that in two places Dan Brown capitalizes the word truth. In Christian Science when Truth is capitalized it means God. “I serve a far greater master than my own pride: The Truth.” (TDVC, p. 424)
“The Truth has been silenced long enough!” (Ibid, p. 452)
The final verse, the one within the black cryptex, leads Robert and Sophie to Rosslyn Chapel, the Cathedral of Codes, built in 1446 in Scotland on the North-South Rose line. The clue is:
“The Holy Grail ‘neath ancient Roslin waits.
The blade and chalice guarding o’er Her [sixteen] gates.
Adorned in masters’ loving art, She lies.
She rests at last beneath the starry skies.” (Ibid, p. 482; [My interpolation.])
This is where Sophie finds out that she still has a brother and a grandmother. She will remain here with her family.
There are three important symbols found inside Rosslyn Chapel. The first two go together, and they are like two symbols found at Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. They are the two pillars – Boaz (left pillar) and Jachine (right pillar). These two pillars are seen in THE HIGH PRIESTESS card (seen above). Notice in the Tarot how Boas is black and Jachine is white. This symbolizes the two pillars on the Tree of Life.
…While the Pillar of Mildness is THE HIGH PRIESTESS herself. Each Tarot card in the Rider Deck is laid out to represent the the Tree of Life. The KEY card to this fact (or template card) is the Ten of Pentacles.
Dan Brown says that the Chapel’s Pillar of Boaz, the Mason’s Pillar, has vertical lines up and down it, while the Pillar of Jachin, the Apprentice Pillar, has a flowering spiral. To me the spiral is symbolic of Science. Now, are the black and white pillars in THE HIGH PRIESTESS card like the two cryptex keys found within the wooden box, representing the two Sentinels that Mary Baker Eddy placed on her Sentinel and found in Christ and Christmas?
I also find the description of Tree of Life’s second Sephirote circle, or sphere, of interest in relating to the white pillar. “Chokmah, Wisdom [Sophie]…the Universe [card]…(all 12 zodiacal signs)” (A Complete Guide to the Tarot, by Eden Gray, p. 214) – now when diagrams this Sephirote on page 213 it is a circle with twelve smaller circles around it. To me this is symbolic of the woman God-crowned. “Chokmah is the spirit of all wisdom...This power goes out to all the 12 signs of the Zodiac, which we have grouped around it for clarity–as well as placing them on the outer circle…In Chokmah we have both primal paternity and infinite wisdom expanded in an infinite universe. Thus the Temple of Wisdom is supported by twelve, not seven, pillars, and these are the zodiacal divisions (Ibid).” This reminds me of the the Rose Window found within the Branch Church of Concord. As there are twelve pillars in between each of the petal windows. Also in this same paragraph Gray makes a mistake, which has caused me to make mistakes in my own work. Gray says Aquarius is a water sign and Scorpio is an air sign, while in two other places the author gets it correct having Aquarius as an air sign and Scorpio as a water sign.
The second symbol in the Chapel is the Star of David. This star is made up of two triangles and has six points. It is symbolic of the male (Jerusalem) and female (Israel) as one.
Robert Langdon returns to Paris to find the original Rose line leading him to the Louvre. Thus the story makes a complete circle. All 135 metal plates, each five inches in diameter, show points upon the Rose line leading him to the “Carrousel de Louvre, a circle of grass surrounded by a perimeter of neatly trimmed hedges…There in the center, gaped a giant inverted pyramid [a chalice]” (p. 486; [My interpolation.]). Yet, the top of the chalice is a perfect square of glass, this glass pyramid is called La Pyramide Inversee. “On the floor of the chamber below, stood the tiniest of structures…a structure Langdon had mentioned in his manuscript.” (Ibid)
In the movie we see that the “tiniest of structures” is a smaller pyramid (a blade). Then, also in the movie, the camera pans down to go beneath the blade to show the coffin of Mary Magdalene. Le Fin.
Footnote #1: The word “Daystar” can mean the Sun or Venus. I place the Daystar as being the second Major Star in WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK.
Footnote #2: Acrux is a star in the Southern Cross constellation. I place Acrux as being the third Major Star in WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK.
Footnote #3: The description of this particular Keystone sounds like descriptions of two places on the moon, so I have the fourth Major Star in WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK as being the moon. These four Major Star are for the Word’s squared-cycle – the Word as the Word (North Star), the Word as Christ (Daystar), the Word as Christianity (Acrux), and the Word as Science (Moon).
