I have been working on research notes rather obsessively for ten days now, I have to draw the line somewhere. Connections keep appearing. Leads are abundant. But I cannot possibly follow them all. I think that this process has raised some interesting questions and provided some things to consider, whether those things be answers or not. (more…)

Research Notes – Syria – Geography & connections w/ Rome, Greece, & Delphi

“By the third century, countless members of the indigenous population who had acquired some of the distinctive features of the Greeks were considered Greek. Inhabitants of Tyre, Sdion, and Byblos, for example, were accepted as competitors at the great Panhellenic games at Olympia and Delphi, there is hardly a better way to demonstrate that Syria was now part of the Greek world. From then on, when the Syrian Greeks are mentioned, the term applies not only to the descendents of the former Greek and Macedonian coloizers, but especially to the numerous indigenous Phoenician, Aramaean, Jewish, and Arab families who spoke Greek and who had espoused some features of Greek culture and the Greek way of life.” – The Middle East Under Rome By Maurice Sartre, Catherine Porter, Elizabeth Rawlings (more…)

Scribe’s Notes

Start 9:51

Peristera – has all points
Doitheos – operator

Star Ruby & Call starts 9:53 pm.

I am trying to move forward but my palms are bleeding. They are cut – my palms, on the steps – it was a solider -they cut my palms to put out my eyes.

I am trying to draw out of that part so I can move on –
Before that there was a woman in a guazy red dress she was at the top of the steps & it was blowing in the wind. I think she had long black hair & pale skin. The steps were the ruins of Delphi there was a sunset over the Mediterranean – you can’t see the Mediterranean from Delphi. After the sunset or as I watched the sunset there was a king in the not yellow of gold but blend ?? had a comb that was sticking up in the center or back but I only saw briefly before sunset slowly the ruin rebuilt & I could see what they were but the ?? swords crossed & I could not see anything because there was blood – all (but)! its gone no now I haven’t gotten my eyes back the woman did not come back the image is still ruins (long pause) (more…)

Seer’s Notes

Delphi came to mind immediately. The image of eye in the palms of my hands. The steps of stone raising sharply and turning to the left. The flat stone surface at the top were once a large collections of buildings must have stood. There was a woman in a red dress – gauzy and flow in the wind, black hair and pale white skin.

Then there was a sunset on a body of water that looked much like the Mediterranean Sea. A king in yellow/gold – the color of the sun – with a tall comb-like helmet.

Then back at the steps. A sword fall across the palms of my hands and cut out the eyes with which I saw – the eyes in my palms.

This is where the call ended and by that time I was so upset that I could barely start to speak the vision. There was blood everywhere – gushing from my palms. There was pain. I was just fixed on the red – the color as much as the fact that it was blood. I was finally able to start speaking and regained the vision by backing up and recounting what had transpired thus far. By the time I had spoke this much the blood was gone but my eyes had not returned. (more…)
