The Triangle Puzzle - Plantard`s Tarot

Here is something from Plantard ("The Hermeticist's Point of View" by Pierre Plantard) : "Gisors is the northernmost point of an equilateral triangle over France. The lower 2 points are Montreval-en-Brecce near the Swiss border and Jarnac near the Atlantic coast. The triangle is important because Bourges is in the center, it was important to the Priory." Plantard mentions Isis and the design and architecture of Gisors. The Nautonnier refers to the masons who sailed to their destinations in order to build. Compare to the triangle on the Fool card. Can you solve Plantard`s triangle puzzle? From Hans: "...but the shoes must have different colours (green on his left side and brown on his right side). Just as the popes throne."

Red Mercury

Here is a stunning example of red mercury in the form of cinnabar in quartz. Cinnabar or vermilion is natural red mercury(II) sulfide. Although there has been speculation that red mercury may be a nuclear material, this form of red mercury is not radioactive. Encased in quartz, it is one of the safer ways to have mercury, an extremely toxic element. A painting of Hermes Trismegistus with the Emerald Tablet of Hermes behind him. The Yin-Yang symbols represent the "As above, so below" Hermetic saying written on the tablet. Hermes Trismegistus with the sign for Mercury on his hat - Hermes/Mercury/Thoth. He is a prominent character in the Gnostic Nag Hammadi codices discovered in Egypt. An alchemical discussion. Le Fou, the Fool/Jester from the Plantard tarot. Pierre Plantard painted 5 tarot characters. Note that he has the sign for Mercury on his shoulder. This stands for the planet Mercury as well as the element mercury which was one of the 3 basic elements of the alchemists: Mercury, Sulfur, and Salt. Pierre Plantard was the one who gave the list of the Grand Masters of the Priory of Sion to the National Library in Paris in the 1960s. In this card Plantard identifies the Jester/Joker with alchemical Hermes/Mercury, he wears a turban with the alchemical sign for purified (chelated) water on it. The Templars learned chemistry from the Saracens during the Crusades. This Moslem alchemist appears to be a Moor in the Oswald Wirth tarot which was modeled on the original French Marseilles tarot. The Moors were in Spain and in France. From the Oswald Wirth tarot, the model for Plantard`s tarot. Wirth drew the hat of the Joker as a large turban. "Cinnabar (pronounced /ˈsɪnəbɑr/) or cinnabarite /sɪnəˈbɑraɪt/ (red mercury(II) sulfide (HgS), native vermilion), is the common ore of mercury".

The Colorful Coral and Seaweed Dream - Milcah`s Latest

"We have friends in the tour business who want us to go on an exotic ocean island tour with them. In my dream I was paddling on a raft, it was hard work to make any progress in the water. Along came my lady friend in an sleek Asian teak boat gliding along. She held a wooden ball that was attached to a dowl that went under her craft and propelled it. She would touch the ball and the boat would effortlessly move through the water. I perceived at that moment that different people have different ways of doing things. Below there were a multitude of colorful seaweeds and corals, I was rather fearful of swimming there. Suddenly the husband of my friend jumped into the deep lagoon and I waited and waited for him to surface. When it seemed that he would never come up, I suddenly saw him up on the deck of the dock. it was a double decker dock and he was on the top level." The Japanses fighting fish Dream: A Japanese Crowntail Beta. "I was holding a mason jar with a lid filled with water. Inside was a purple and blue Japanese fighting fish looking at me. This fish had the face of a woman who was showing to me her many expressions." Milcah`s childhood dream: "I was standing on the land, a girl approached me in a boat talking to me. She said that her name was "Calypso from the Horizon". The accent was on the last syllable making the word "horizon" sound as if it referred to another land."
