The Lion Ring

Roaring Lion
Bronze Statue's a matter of Pride.

Lion Ring Seal With Imprint

Note: perspective is off, since She is no Artist

The Lion is a Symbol of both the Tribes Judah and Dan. Legend has it that King Solomon wore a Signet Ring that conferred magic powers to Him s.t.n. He may control the Wind, Demons and Jinn and understand the language of the animal kingdom. As King He used such a ring to Set His Seal on official documents and coduct other courtly business.

In General, a seal-making device is also referred to as the seal matrix or die; the imprint it creates is the seal impression (or, more rarely, the sealing). If the impression is made purely as a relief resulting from the greater pressure where the high parts of the matrix touch, the seal is known as a dry seal. (wikipedia)

Today, setting a seal or  'sealing' has to do with protecting from public view court documents in order to guard State Secrets or in Witness Protection programs.

No One other than King Solomon has ever seen His Ring and if they had, they would not have 'lived' to tell about it (get it, they 'die' first). Some guess that it had 4 jewels, some think it was embossed with the Star of David and inscribed with the Ineffable Name(s) of God.

Some bear the Seal (stigmata as a white scar from a heat impression) since it is never appropriate to welcome such High Heads of State (Emissaries) with the Universal One Finger Salute.

Lately I've been 'hearing' "Beautiful! Beautiful!"   -- something that my friend Paul (the 'glazier') is known to say, where most people suffice to say, "Wow!", or "Oh, My God!" or simply,  "O, Gee!"

Since that can't be a comment on Her Artistic Endeavors (that's Michael's Forte), if She is sooo beautiful and You took the Time (Out) to imprint Her with Your Stamp of Approval, why is it that You Know her name(s), address(es) and phone number(s), and yet She doesn't know the first thing about You? (Aside: I know, it's because she is a blabber mouth and is likely to post your Identity on this ProScribed blog of hers that NoBody reads, once she runs your license plates for the world wide web users to see--I really wouldn't).

Unless, it isn't a stamp of approval at all and more of a 'damned Yankee' tag--which is just as likely given what She registers as Your disappointment every time You spot Her and She 'hears' You 'say,' "...and here She is--again!"

(Another Aside: Her poor Spelling and Your obscure Stamping is a sure recipe for disaster, it's a good thing the Gramma(r) is holding up).

Addendum 06_19_2012: Okay, Mr. 'It's you!'-- What exactly are You accusing me of other than failure to pull a comb through my hair and a predilection toward weird science? 

O, and don't keep summoning me and then act like you don't know why it's me that keeps showing up!

From "What All The World Is Made Of"--by Robert Southey

This pretty little Jingle does not always hold true that Boys are made of such Earthly things and Girls always so Refined, but the Irony lies in that its subtext flies completely under the Radar --about forming Macromolecules--of DNA, that is.

The word مِن (pronounced 'MIN') basically means Of or From, and while I promised I would no longer use the Quran to hone my culinary technique, it does appear that on more than one and Various Occassions You Beat me to it; Precisely and Pointedly as it Pertains to what is/was involved in 'Cooking Up' a Human in the First Place (Recall that Twilight Zone episode, 'To Serve Man'?) {Note: In the selected passages the مِن 'min' appears in different colors to highlight that the diacritical marks vary, indicating a change in pronunciation, but do not appear to change the meaning when reading in context. مِّنْ is pronounced 'MMan' and مِّنَ is pronounce 'MMana' and مِنَ is pronounced 'Mina'.}

What Follows is a Synopsis of the Process based on a cursory search of the Quran relating to the topic of RNA and DNA synthesis, since there are ongoing efforts to form nucleotides in the lab that have been met with limited success in forming some but not all of the sugar-base pairs; it would be interesting to see what, if anything, is being overlooked. The understanding is that it is no easy task to get the base to 'stick' to the sugar backbone of the macromolecule.

{...if you absolutely cannot wait until I get through this translation to form your pretty little DNA molecule in a bottle, so far it would seem that in addition to stirring and heating and protecting/sheltering in some type of vessel or enclave for a while/aging it that is serrated or pointed, a certain noise/sound like that of glass and metal 'clink' or 'clank' like the sound from the 'edge of the Universe' you get when playing a Tibet Singing Bowl to get the bases to bind to the sugars...try something like that!}

If one must go flying off the handle-- best to do so Parenthetically, I suppose. At any rate, here it is in slo-mo:

According to 15:26 it starts with صَلْصَالٍ pronounced salsalin, clay or grit. (Watch carefully as I turn humble clay into some sort of advanced engineering material--just for your amusement).
That the word صَلْصَالٍ (salsalin) incorporates both the name of the material and one of its qualities is quite profound when you stop to think that naturally occurring clay is composed primarily of fine-grained minerals, aka grit. Clay minerals are the most abundant materials in sedimentary basins. They are responsible for imparting plasticity to the clay which cause it to harden when fired or dried.

Plasticity describes the deformation of a material undergoing non-reversible changes of shape in response to applied forces, and in biology Phenotype plasticity describes the ability of an organism to change its phenotype in response to changes in the environment. The deformation or the change of an object's shape is called strain and the force causing it is called stress.

Water may also be trapped in the mineral crystals in variable amounts and the clay may also have other organic matter which does not contribute to the clay's plasticine quality. The most common clay minerals—like kaolinite, illite, chlorite, and smectite are typically found in mudstones.

So, now we know where the Water (الْمَاء, al-ma.a) comes from that God used in Creating Everything and mentioned in Sign 25:54 And He Is Who Created from/of the Water Human Being(s)... The Word bashrin, بَشَرًا, not only means Human Being but also Walking, 'Good News', and Epidermal. Epidermal refers to the outer layer of skin, but it may also mean a more generic outer layer that functions to contain any biological form. And then He Assigned His Creation a form and Proportioned it, in other words 'Made Man as He Imagined' him.

That the human was never meant to be solitary is stipulated in that as part of his formation, in addition to having been assigned a form, he was also assigned صِهْرً 'sihrun'; meaning, He Gave him Lineage/Pedigree/Descent/Parentage/Extraction/Kinship/Kin/Derivation and Marriage Ties. And it is due to the usage of the word 'sihrun' that it is acceptable to think that it is the DNA and/or RNA material being formed in this process since these macromolecules are responsible for passing on genetic information to future generations, in other words, heredity.

The word sihrun provides evidence that this molecular formation from the clay comprises the following activities, too: Smelting/Fuze/Melt/Cast/and Melt Down.

Sign 25:54 concludes with one of God's Attributes being 'Qadir', primarily meaning 'Mighty', but other definitions include include: Capable/Predestines/Measures/Determines/Rates/Accounts/Numbers/Quantifies...
Other physical qualities attributed to the 'starter' clay is that it is مَّسْنُونٍ 'masnoonin'--that it is 'aged' from those clays that are 'serrated/poined/jagged/toothed' at some level of inspection, either macroscopic or microscopic or both. And that it is treated by حَمَإٍ 'hamaa_in' (no mother-in-law jokes, please)-- in other words, 'heated' or 'annealed' under conditions of a steady regimen of 'feeding' it a 'steady intake or diet' of something under 'protected' or 'safeguarded' conditions. Other mechanics involved in this step are 'agitation', and the allusion to 'excitement' which may refer to the heightened activity at the molecular or atomic level.

In addition to heat and temperature and mechanically moving (like stirring, agitation), the word hamma_in also means ardor or passion which is an indication that there was a great deal of attention and care given in tending to this process.

If any of these steps sound familiar, they are very much in keeping with how a Sculptor creates Ceramics or Pottery works. But, an additional nuance arising from using the word salsaln is that there is also some type of resonance in that a 'sound' much like a Jingle/Clink/Clank, typically associated with metallic noise or the sound glass makes when it it struck, is also contributing to this process (that's why Tibetan Singing Bowls were mentioned earlier).

Also, the homophone derived by substituting the letter seen for the saad in 'salsalin' means 'chain/concatenate' , which appears to indicate that at a molecular level atoms are being strung together or 'added up' to form chains.

In 18:37 we get a clue to the age-old Riddle, 'What came first, the Chicken or the Egg?'

It specifies "First, مِن 'min' from/of تُرَابٍ turabin or Earth/Soil/Dust", basically, an echo of the 'clay' and then from/of نُّطْفَةٍ 'natfatin' (a drop of) Semen or Sperm. This implies that the genetic material is created first and "then He سَوَّاكَ رَجُلًا" 'sawa.ka rajula'--"then He made you a Man". The order is clearly given as first from dust, then sperm (genetic material) and only thereafter do you become equivalent/equal (t0) a Man (Human Being).

The word turabin is used here to further characterise the clay as 'dust'; meaning that it is associated with finer particles than other materials that are produced by the weathering of rocks or stones. Clays are distinguished from other fine-grained soils by differences in size and mineralogy, and typically clays are characterized as having the smaller particle size than silts or other deposits (on the order of about 2 microns or less).

Sign 16:4 seems to be making the Observation that the undeserved consequence of all this hard work in Creating Humans is, rather than their showing Gratitude, they become openly adversarial or Contentious. And 19:67 serves to Remind us that this Act of Creation was due to having met with God's Acceptance on a Prior Occassion or From Before or Right In Front of Him, and that Humans forget that without His Doing So, we were all like Nothing or Not Anything at All. Sign 36:77 reiterates the apparent disappointment almost word-for-word as Sign 16:4.

The word رَبَتْ (rabbat) in 22:5 means 'Tied' something together or 'Tamed' it and then He أَنبَتَتْ 'anbata' , which means 'Grew' or 'Brought About' from 'Every Pair' or 'Dual' (Dyad زَوْجٍ ) Beauty بَهِيجٍ (baheejin). The word baheej also means that what is Created with these Dyads is Unstressed Convivial, Lovely, Warm, Inviting; basically Everything Good.

Now, to Tie something together means to 'attach' or 'bind' or 'knot' or 'fasten' together the Dyad (or pair under consideration), and if related to the activity that preceded this with the clay-derived molecules, it becomes clear that the 'chain' macromolecules are being joined together, much like we would expect in DNA, as an adjunct to the crystal growth taking place from 'firing' the 'clay' and/or processing it by shaping, sintering, cooling it as one would when making Pottery. (A clue as to which of the two genders came first can be ascertained by inspection. Recall that 'those fired are the men' which indicates that it is during the 'firing' of the 'clay' step in the process that the y-chromosome is formed as opposed to another step associated with pottery making, such as forming or cooling).

Sign 23:12 reinforces the 'Inheritence' aspect of this Creation, a further allusion to DNA, in that سُلَالَةٍ 'sulalitin' means a Strain/Line/Descent/Race/Progeny/ Ancestry/Geneology/Stock/Offspring/Scions/Sprigs, etc., even Blood and Parentage.

And the noun 'sallay', a variant intonation of the word 'sulalitin' means 'Baskets' or a 'Group of Similar or Related Things.' A Basket can be taken explicitly to mean a type of 'Woven Container'. And the word 'Cells' (diminutive) like saying 'littel cells' is also found in the root of this word. The Basket سُلَالَةٍ is described as being made of/from the طِينٍ 'teen' or Clay/Mud.

Mud specifies that the Clay deposits used in building these macromolecules is associated with a watery/marine environment. Clay deposits may be formed in place or transported to locations other than where the weathering/aging process occurs and they are typically associated with very low energy depositional environments such as large lakes and marine deposits, which would be consistent with using the term 'mud'. {Note that both the terms Stress and Strain are mentioned in these Signs as having to do with forming something from the 'clay' which ties in rather nicely with the plastic quality of the clay}.
To the trained eye, that we are 'Created from Dust' is not News but, on finer inspection, Sign 23:12 is describing in Great Detail what the actual physical assembly of these macromolecules looks like.

Consider that Crystal structures are 'woven' or 'cross-hatched' cell assemblies on the 'atomic level' and that Pottery making itself causes certain types of clay minerals to assemble in these types of crystaline structures. Other things to keep in mind are that Crystal size, number, and shape are determined by factors such as impurity level, mixing regime, vessel design, and cooling profile. {Note that the Created phenotypes are formed in such a manner as to be Unstressed, such that the type of molecules and/or crystals being formed are made or assembled in such a way as to have little or no stress}.

At the Atomic level, Clay minerals are hydrous aluminium phyllosilicates, sometimes with variable amounts of iron, magnesium, alkali metals, alkaline earths and other cations. Clays are fundamentally built of tetrahedral sheets and octahedral sheets; examples of clays that would consist of one tetrahedral sheet and one octahedral sheet would be kaolinite and serpentine.
Time now for the Mystical Math (because I know You're Baiting me, but I figure Granma wants to hear me 'say' it). The significant relationship between tetrahedra and octahedra in 3-Dimensional space is that the stellated octahedron is the only stellation of the octahedron and it is the simplest of five regular polyhedral compounds. It can be considered as either a polyhedron compound (combination of polyhedra) or a stellation (a stellation of a polyhedron is formed by extending all its faces until they intersect again along new edges). As a compound, it is constructed by joining two tetrahedra (a tetrahedron and its dual (dyadic) tetrahedron). So, that was the description in Words, and here it is if we draw a Picture:

This particular geometry is interesting when viewed from a certain Perspective in that a very Familiar 2-dimensional Emblem or Symbol becomes Readily Apparent.

The applicability of this 'Star of David' or 'Abraham's Shield' to All of Humanity is inherent in All of Creation and is not simply meant to Identify just one Stratum of Humanity, like being Jewish. (As an aside, the earlier discussion regarding tesselations (tessera or using non-overlapping tiles to cover a field) in combination with stellations is contributing to the field of developing electro-optical invisibility cloaks. It would be interesting to see if tesselations of the stellated octohedron produce a viable invisibility cloak).

This Fact, that Underlies Everything, is brought to the fore in 55:14 when it is mentioned that the Human Being's Creation from/of salsalin=Clay/Grit (var. chain, concatenate) is كَالْفَخَّارِ k.alfukhar--meaning, 'similar or like unto Pottery' (pottery making/device). The roots associated with the word Pottery mean Honorary, Superior, Luxuriant with a secondary meaning of it being 'wry'= dry/sardonic.

The word wry, while implying some Irony is involved, Points to the manner in which these macromolecules are concatenated when deposited along with or in these 'baskets' or crystal structures, gives them their Distinctive shape or Geometry. Since 'wry' means 'out of shape' or 'twisted to one side', indicates the process of forming these macromolecules in situ with laying down the crystal structure from the clay dictates the 'twisted' shape of the Helix or Double Helix associated with DNA and RNA molecules.

The Helix (a spun string, a screw, a propeller, etc.) and Möbius strip are chiral 2-dimensional objects in 3-dimensional ambient space. Chirality is inherent in molecules built from clays having tetrahedral and octahedral sheets, especially when one stops to consider that the stellated octahedron is a combination of a tetrahedron and its self-dual (its reflection through the origin, or mirror-image). {A similar notion of chirality is considered in knot theory}.

While Sign 32:7 may not be adding new information pertaining to the formation or the building process of living things from clay, it is included here to make a final Point. Simply stated, it says God Perfected Everything He Created أَحْسَنَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ 'ahsana kuli shyin', and then He Started Creating Humans from the طِينٍ 'muddy clay/dust.

And Sign 30:20 states in No Uncertain Terms that "Of His Signs Is (Verily/Truly) He Created You of/from Dust (Earth/Soil) and Then If (this is a Qualifier--'A Big If') you Are Human Beings, then and only then, and for as long as you remain Human Beings, You Propagated or Are Ranging Widely!

I hope this last Sign settles in your Collective Mind any dissonant thoughts you may still have as to Who Exactly Is Flying Those Spaceships!

وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَكُم مِّن تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ إِذَا أَنتُم بَشَرٌ تَنتَشِرُونَ 30:20

O, Ewes Guys!

...quit making fun of my Brooklyn accent.

"It is madness for sheep to talk peace with a wolf."
--Thomas Fuller
Surah 8 Al-Anfal (The Spoils of War)

إِذْ تَسْتَغِيثُونَ رَبَّكُمْ فَاسْتَجَابَ لَكُمْ أَنِّي مُمِدُّكُم بِأَلْفٍ مِّنَ الْمَلآئِكَةِ مُرْدِفِينَ 8:9

8:9 If/When you plead/ed with God (to Intercede) and He Responded (s) to you, indeed He Extended (s) (outspread, expanded, prolonged, protracted) 1,000 Angels 'murdifoon' 'arranged in rank' (but the primary meaning here of 'rdf' is 'buttocks'--and don't be laughing just yet).

'The Lord is My Shepherd' not because I am a sheep (or ewe, whatever the case might be), but because I belong to His 'Fold' (a crash course on Tay-al-Ard is called for a this juncture). And a cut-and-paste illustration might help some, too.

Be cautioned that the 2-dimensional illustration is a bit misleading but is only being used for convenient reference. Misleading in that the figure of the soldier practicing a Military Parachute Landing Fall is doing just that and he is not actually rotating in space. From his perspective he is going through maneuvers, or engaged in battle or doing whatever he is being called on to do.

The soldier is used as the example here because of the use of the word 'murdifin' which does refer to the 'Buttocks', the 4th point of a textbook military parachute landing fall. And while the rest of the illustration is attempting to show the realignment of this Subject to God's Purpose (essentially, the meaning of the word Muslim*), what is actually moving is the Space-Time. Can you tell from this example which way the Plane is Moving (Folded)?

In addition to a novel approach to physics, let's see what this perspective does from the vantage point of the Theatre of War (I'll bet those video games will start looking pretty good about now).

إِذْ يُغَشِّيكُمُ النُّعَاسَ أَمَنَةً مِّنْهُ وَيُنَزِّلُ عَلَيْكُم مِّن السَّمَاء مَاء
لِّيُطَهِّرَكُم بِهِ وَيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمْ رِجْزَ الشَّيْطَانِ وَلِيَرْبِطَ عَلَى قُلُوبِكُمْ
وَيُثَبِّتَ بِهِ الأَقْدَامَ 8:11

8:11 That Deceptive Somnolence (cheating sleepiness/that blurs makes things vague), a Reassurance (Safety) from Us and the coming down of water (rain, m.a) from the Sky to Cleanse you and Rid you of the Wrath (vengeance) of Satan and Linked your Hearts (braced you, to each other) and Fixed your footing (your sure-footedness; a firmer footing implies stronger gravitational forces so what effect did this passel of warriors (collection of nearby point sources) have on local Gravity?)

فَلَمْ تَقْتُلُوهُمْ وَلَـكِنَّ اللّهَ قَتَلَهُمْ وَمَا رَمَيْتَ إِذْ رَمَيْتَ وَلَـكِنَّ
اللّهَ رَمَى وَلِيُبْلِيَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْهُ بَلاء حَسَناً
إِنَّ اللّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ 8:17

8:17 So, you did not kill them but God Killed them; and you did not throw what/if you threw but God Threw/Cast; and ‘informed the Believers among them’/’labled the Believers among them’/’wore them out by the Believers’/in a good ordeal (first-class scourge—He Whooped their butts); Indeed, God is All Hearing, All Knowing (Aware)

وَاتَّقُواْ فِتْنَةً لاَّ تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مِنكُمْ خَآصَّةً
8:25 وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ
8:25 And fear (have a care) Sedition not infect those who are wrong/ed among you particularly and know that God is Severe in Punishment

إِذْ أَنتُم بِالْعُدْوَةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُم بِالْعُدْوَةِ الْقُصْوَى وَالرَّكْبُ أَسْفَلَ مِنكُمْ
وَلَوْ تَوَاعَدتَّمْ لاَخْتَلَفْتُمْ فِي الْمِيعَادِ وَلَـكِن لِّيَقْضِيَ اللّهُ أَمْراً كَانَ مَفْعُولاً
لِّيَهْلِكَ مَنْ هَلَكَ عَن بَيِّنَةٍ وَيَحْيَى مَنْ حَيَّ عَن بَيِّنَةٍ وَإِنَّ اللّهَ لَسَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ 8:42

8:42 That you in count/numbers (to the enemies/opposing force) the minimum (least, fewest) and they in count/numbers (to the enemies/opposing force) the maximal (superior, ) and the base installation (riders at the back/below) of you had just avoided not disputing/differing in/by the date (promised, appointment) and but for God's Judgment His Will was Done that they mistook (weakened) from your appearing greater in number from what is Evident and hailing from the neigborhood/district/vicinity Proof/Evidence/Testimony that Indeed God is All-Hearing, Omniscient.

{Aside: (whisper) If You have been following this blog since its inception You know that somehow I have managed to avoid Chapter 8 for the better part of 3 years, and for good reason. Knowing how You feel about my 'unique' interpretation of the Science in the Quran, I know You might be none too pleased with my take on History, especially if it has anything to do with Battles. The Battle alluded to here is a famous one, but I have a memory like a sieve when it comes to such things, so I hope my contemporary retrospective on it does not incentivize You to do something I will regret (again) or make me any fatter.}

The section appearing in Red Font in Sign 8:42, hailing from the neigborhood/district/vicinity Proof/Evidence/Testimony, is the interpretation of what took place at the 'lowest level'--under the Fold. Basically, the 'Forces on the Right' were outnumbered by the larger 'Forces on the Wrong' that struck fear in our heroes due to their superiority (not only in number, but it would appear they also had the higher ground and the better equipment/horses) and first saw the defending contingent as few in number, but at the last chance the 'guys from 'the 'hood'' contingent shows up (apparently they were quibbling about the date/time of when exactly the Battle was to take place--and they did not have what I am holding--an iPhone), but fortuitously they all resolved the dispute in time to make a good impression--good enough to weaken the other side by the mere appearance of their overwhelming numbers. Since, based on this narrative, the supporting forces from the vicinity did manage to converge on the battle field in what appeared to the opposing side in surprisingly large enough numbers (described as making the enemy perish/go missing/weaken or tire by the 'hulk', or what 'appeared to be a large looming object') as to make them lose any hope of being able to win the day.

(I added enough back links to "Micelles, Gravicells.." but the moral of this story has to do with the human body and Gravity interactions---and by extension any body and gravity, including such as may be found in the 'nethermost' regions which implies sub-atomic; attention is drawn to the location and timing of the lesser forces (at the bottom levels) vs the more evident superior forces (at the top), and then local or neighboring/vicinity effects of the emergent forces at the point they converge and seem to be much larger than is first apparent due to higher dimensional objects being 'folded' onto the common plane (ground); which seems to be related to tay-al-ard or space-time folding (higher dimensions must be involved for any of this to make sense, check out the lusona lesson below to see how this would apply).

The reason for thinking that Our Subjects were at what seems to be a 'disadvantage'--that being on the lower ground-- is the description of their having been 'al-rakib al-asfal' which means 'mounted on the bottom' as compared to the superior/maximal force which was also 'uppermost' or on higher ground. But, how, one might wonder did they suddenly appear to be such a vexing number if in fact those with the better view could clearly see them and surmise their evident or apparent number?

I wasn't there, but based on the History as rendered in Sign 8:42 by the carefully selected words and the proviso (it's postulated) that the Quran was intended to make sense or be useful 'fi qul zamaan wa makaan' (for all time and every place), I suspect something else was happening 'below the Fold'.

The word 'al-rakib' also means 'constructed', 'composed', 'superimposed', and 'framed' while 'al-asfal' along with meaning 'foot' or 'bottom' also means 'nethermost' or 'undermost', adjectives which imply 'layers' or 'tiers'. (If you haven't been following carefully, then take a few minutes to consider the mathematics and geometry of tilings or tesselations and symmetry , groups, and groups as sets--do that while I now go freshen up at the gym--because "God Loves Beauty" and I like to please God). be continued
--Ok. I'm back!

Say what you want about Arabs but the simple fact of the matter is that they always know (at least back then) exactly where they are and what time it is---or they would be dead in the desert pretty darn quick (without GPS).

So how is it that these guys on this day of Battle were remiss about the time? They steered by the Sun during the day and the Stars/Planets at night for the simple reason that they had to in order to survive the aeolian landscape which they inhabited. Sands shifted and did not form reliable landmarks, and this begs the question: where were their heads at that they were confused about the appointed time to engage the enemy? {If you've visited the links above about math and tesselations, then a quick review about Escher's work Relativity and the subject of having 'companions' as a matter of explaining the nature of what we call Reality and the Multiverse might help fix the following concepts in your mind}.

Recall that Sign 8:11 mentions that these warriors were of "two states" of mind, the one being somnolent (described as deceptive or a cheat) and the other being 'braced' or 'connected/linked to each other' and sure-footed (gravitational increase due to linking) after having a rain come down. The 'sleepy' state is also described as being a Reassuring or Safety mechanism from God; but once the Rain comes down (recall the word 'ma' means water and it comes down from the Sky when it Rains) the warriors' 'sleepiness' is washed away and they feel consciously connected to each other which reinforces their resolve/sure-footedness (a relationship that is in 'sleep' mode (perhaps a ground or sub-ground state) becomes activated when the bodies become linked/connected to each other and augments the effect of gravity; Warning: the somnolent or sleepy state is a Safety mechanism, so proceed with Caution before waking or linking/superimposing anything up ) . It is no small coincidence that Sign 8:11 incorporates m.a and relates battle (competing/non-compatible) having to do with--of all things--Forces (does anyone now know why F=ma?)

Okay. I will spin my wheels here a little bit longer, because someone else has to know the answer since this isn't all about m.e (never was, never will be...). So, I will digress and mention that now you will be introduced to one possibile explanation to the age-old question: Where do Angels come from? (The short answer is from the top of the nautilus spiral).

Lusona are line drawings made by the Lunda-Tchokwe group of the Bantu, an example of which appears in the illustration on the right. Sona making integrates mathematics, art, and culture and traditionally were passed from one generation to the next during a 6 to 8 month period of male initiation rites. It is used here to help further demonstrate the concept behind our paratrooper's realignment in the above drawing and shed some light on an alternative explanation as to where those ('extra-dimensional') forces came from that are mentioned in Sign 8:42.

The lusona used in the example has translational, and rotational symmetry and provides a simple case for the purposes of illustration. More challenging examples can be tested using examples without rotational symmetry or more complicated group geometries like you would find in arabicized tilings or tesselations; in which case one would have to resort to more complex mathematics (probably need a good grasp of rotational matrices) rather than simple inspection. (Find more at Paulus Gerdes Ethnomath, Mirror Symmetries)

The first sequence of drawings breaks down the geometry of one lusona, noting that the proportion between the base diamond and those on the perimeter is 1/3. The 'key' objects are also proportional to the diamonds.

This next sequence illustrates that through translation and rotation symmetries the 'key' elements are assembled/connected to the diamond base (for lack of a better term, let's call it 'The Field"). And it is interesting to note for the purposes of this explanation that the 'key' elements are not directly connected to each other, so in a manner of speaking, they are not 'aware' of each other (another way of saying inattentive or 'sleepy'); and in this manner the original lusona is realized as shown at the upper right corner of the drawing on the left.

But Reality is seldom 2-dimensional and in order to visualize what is happening when space-time folds on itself as it would in cases of tay-al-ard or higher dimensional beings (like Angels) 'coming down' for a visit, the lusona is extended into 3-dimensions by the indicated spiral. An image of a nautilus is shown to help with the visualization that something is sprialing up out of the page or down into the page.

There have been previous discussions about the Golden Ratio (1.618) and it is often suggested that it is the expected ratio at which the nautilus shell expands, however, it has been reported that mathematician Clement Falbo measured a series of nautilus shells at San Francisco's California Academy of Sciences, and he found that while they were indeed logarithmic spirals (like the golden spiral), their ratios ranged from about 1.24 to 1.43, with an average ratio of about 1.33 to 1. And that 1/3 expansion is in keeping with the ratio of our lusona here.

And in keeping with sound mathematical practices, the lusona is 'superimposed' onto the image of the nautilus with the logarithmic spiral curve in blue and it coincides at 6 points. Depending on variations and accuracy it is expected that it may coincide at 7 points. The case for 8 points coinciding is not as readily deduced from this investigation. It is of further interest to note how the 'keys' just happen to frame the chambered region of the nautilus.

[You, with the super computer, can see what happens in analogous situations for even higher dimensions, say up to 7---oh, why stop there, try up to 11---and let's address the validity of 'string theory' once and for all---the mathematics have to include all of the operations appearing in green and summarized in Sign 8:9; this is not a homework assignment, it's strictly voluntary and while cases with symmetry are more manageable, it would be an interesting excercise to see what happens when dealing with deformations or non-symmetries]

*وَجَاهِدُوا فِي اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ هُوَ اجْتَبَاكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ مِّلَّةَ

Micelles, 'Gravicells', And Passels

There is a fundamental problem with non-native speakers translating a text (I am just as guilty as all the rest I am sure) and that is their need to rely on anecdotal or historic evidence to decode parts that pose difficulties. ***

Take for example the word 'tbt' in Sign 111:1 which is by all published accounts rendered as Perish! or Damn! when the word for such is 'taab'. I suppose part of the conflict is having to admit that no one really knows at the time what is meant by it so they have to think of something or there will be a gaping hole of not having it make any sense otherwise; which only makes things all the more difficult to understand.

I suffer from no such delusion of feeling the need for things to make sense and that's why I go with what is Written whether I understand it or not (I am also very comfortable with not worrying about what others might discover about the large body of missing knowledge I have amassed over the years, either).

So I will keep TBT as it stands and TB as is, since there are no readily meaningful terms in the Google tools Arab-English translator. In my mind I think TBT is tributyltin and TB is tuberculosis.

TBT is an environmental toxin, that while is regulated is still found in the ocean and marine life, soil and groundwater, and has been identified as a possible link to obesity in the human population.

The leading Sign 111:1 may be alluding to a crystal growth (as when forming micelles for drug delivery methods; or surfactants) or some other substitution nomenclature I am not particularly aware of these days.

So, I am just going to throw this out there to see what you think. (with transliteration)

111 Surah Lahab (Blaze/Inferno, a moniker for the Prophet's unkind uncle)

111:5 within her narrow part/good/perfect coil of/from that which seals/plugs/is obdurate/rigid/intransigent (probably a very low temp/very low voltage directional coupler or similar device)

I would have just stopped at this point, thinking I probably got my point across, were it not for my primal fascination with GPS and what a great tool it is for doing the really phun stuph like tay-al-ard (folding space-time, as it is now called).

111:5 In Her Prime Significance of that Bar==SI unit of Pressure cm/g/sec N/cm2/Tablet (Source of Inscription, small computer)/Seal

This last rendering is most directly associated with GPS (although the mention of reanimation may be a nod to Resurrection) which utilizes/rate/distance (rel. to speed+time...)/North Reference (often can choose between‘Auto’ /True North/Magnetic North/Grid North/User North) other factors such as distance, speed, elevation/magnetic declination; lines of longitude/latitude (meridians/parallels); Latitude/longitude ruler is usually divided into degrees/minutes/seconds.
Bearing is measured clockwise from True North or Magnetic North;

Hidden table or tablet could be referring to the Ephemeris/ a table of predicted satellite orbital locations.

At this point, I realize I am preaching to the choir, since You (Dear) must have had all this figured out over 4 years ago (by my reckoning, and having arrived at this conclusion at my own glacial pace).
But did You happen to catch 'Gravicells,' the Art Installation by Seiko Mikami? Apparently it's been on exhibit in one venue or another around the world since 2004. It looks to be a great large scale interactive experience where the human body (that of the observer) is used as the resistive force (counter) to Gravity (which the Artist calls 'the 6th Consciousness').
I chanced on the Gravicells website while searching similarities between geological rock folds and space folds, which got me thinking what effect the human body has on folding space-time or vice versa.
The rest of this discourse relating gravity and passels ( large number or amount or extent) will appear 'above the fold.'

***Author's Note: ...since now I know You read them. I don't have to be 100% right since We are just describing a Method here; We leave it to your fancy English speaking Russian computers to get it all Right.


Aliens, Metaphors, And Mystery

If those 'aliens' look to be invitingly familiar, I'd like to posit some reasons as to why....

36 Ya-Sin (Ya-Seen)

وَآيَةٌ لَّهُمْ أَنَّا حَمَلْنَا ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ فِي الْفُلْكِ الْمَشْحُونِ 36:41

36:41 And (Our) Signs for them (are) that We bear their offspring ( ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ primarily means their offspring; if broken down to ذُرِّيَّ تَهُمْ can mean 'atomic charges' and a tertiary meaning is 'their accusers') in laden (charged/burdened/held back..) 'orbitting ships' الْفُلْكِ (orbits/ships/orbitting ships)

36 Ya-Sin (Ya-Seen)

وَخَلَقْنَا لَهُم مِّن مِّثْلِهِ مَا يَرْكَبُونَ 36:42

36:42 and We create for them (whose 'offspring' we bear in الْفُلْكِ , see 36:41 above) similar (metaphorical) things on which they ride (ie, like ships, cars, etc.)

45 Al-Jathiya (The Kneeling)

وَسَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا مِّنْهُ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لَّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ 45:13

45:13 And He has made subservient (of benefit, at your disposal) to you, all that is in the heavens and on earth, altogether from Himself: in this, indeed, there are messages for people who think!

71 Nuh (Noah)

وَقَدْ خَلَقَكُمْ أَطْوَارًا 71:14

71:14 ... and how He has created you in stages?

71 Nuh (Noah)

وَاللَّهُ أَنبَتَكُم مِّنَ الْأَرْضِ نَبَاتًا 71:17

71:17 And God has caused you to arise (grow) out of the earth in [gradual] development (to evolve)

48 Al-Fath (Victory)

48:4 هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ السَّكِينَةَ فِي قُلُوبِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ لِيَزْدَادُوا إِيمَانًا مَّعَ إِيمَانِهِمْ وَلِلَّهِ جُنُودُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا

48:4 He it is Who sent tranquillity( السَّكِينَةَ pronounce al-sakina; primary meaning tranquility, serenity, Nirvana; if broken down to al-sak- ina may mean 'the one who drove here' or 'the one who drove us'; if broken down to al - sikina may mean 'the knife' and given the similarity in Asian characters for 'knife' /'sword'/'strength' and 'power'...Hebrew Tav=Final/Last/End/Seal; I see now why it is best to remain vague) into the hearts of the Believers, that they may add faith to their faith; for to God belong the Forces (Soldiers) of the heavens and the earth; and God is Full of Knowledge and Wisdom.


Alphabet Soup and Stigmata

During the first century, when Revelation is thought to have been written, stigmata were not as mysterious as they are today. Stigmata—from which the word stigma comes from, refers to leaving a mark by cutting or branding the skin. The stigmata--or mark, on the hand or forehead, were well known to the ancients as slaves, soldiers and pagan worshippers all wore stigmata. In the case of religious devotees the mark was sometimes a pagan god’s particular number; slaves were made to wear their master’s emblem; and soldiers usually bore the emperor’s name or mark on their hand.

There are several references to marks, or stigmata in both the Old and New Testament as well as the Quran and the marks are not only for apostates, but there are instances where God marks out or puts seals on both believers and non-believers, and is even said to number all of them exactly.

The Bible
Genesis 4:15
But the LORD said to him, "Not so; if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over." Then the LORD put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him.

Ezekiel 9:3-4
Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim, where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the LORD called to the man clothed in linen that had the writing kit at his side
and said to him, "Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it."

Revelation 7:2-3
Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:

"Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God."

Revelation 13:16-18
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,

so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666

Revelation 14:9-11
A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand,

he, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb.

And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name."
The Quran
Al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:273
[And give] unto [such of] the needy who, being wholly wrapped up in God's cause, are unable to go about the earth [in search of livelihood]. He who is unaware [of their condition] might think that they are wealthy, because they abstain [from begging]; [but] thou canst recognize them by their special mark: they do not beg of men with importunity. And whatever good you may spend [on them], verily, God knows it all.

Al-'Imran (The Family of 'Imran) 3:140
If misfortune touches you, similar misfortune has touched people as well; for it is by turns that We apportion unto men such days: and to the end that God might mark out those who have attained to faith, and choose from among you such as bear witness to the truth - since God does not love evildoers -
Al-'Imran (The Family of 'Imran) 3:166-167
and all that befell you on the day when the two hosts met in battle happened by God's leave, so that He might mark out the believers,
And mark out those who were tainted with hypocrisy and, when they were told, "Come, fight in God's cause" - or, "Defend yourselves" - answered, "If we but knew [that it would come to a] fight, we would indeed follow you." Unto apostasy were they nearer on that day than unto faith, uttering with their mouths something which was not in their hearts, the while God knew fully well what they were trying to conceal
Al-Ma'idah (The Table) 5:94
O YOU who have attained to faith! Most certainly God will try you by means of the game which may come within the reach of your hands and your weapons, so that God might mark out those who fear Him although He is beyond the reach of human perception. And as for him who, after all this, transgresses the bounds of what is right--grievous suffering awaits him!

Al-A'raf (The Heights) 7:46
And between the two there will be a barrier. And there will be persons who were endowed with the faculty of discernment [between right and wrong], recognizing each by its mark. And they will call out unto the inmates of paradise, "Peace be upon you!"--not having entered it themselves, but longing [for it].

Al-A'raf (The Heights) 7:48
And they who [in life] had possessed this faculty of discernment will call out to those whom they recognize by their marks, saying: "What has your amassing [of wealth] availed you, and all the false pride of your past?

Maryam (Mary) 19:93-95
Not one of all [the beings] that are in the heavens or on earth appears before the Most Gracious other than as a servant:

indeed, He has full cognizance of them, and has numbered them with [exact] numbering;
and every one of them will appear before Him on Resurrection Day in a lonely state.
Al-'Ankabut (The Spider) 29:3
Yea, indeed, We did test those who lived before them; and so, [too, shall be tested the people now living: and] most certainly will God mark out those who prove themselves true, and most certainly will He mark out those who are lying.

Al-'Ankabut (The Spider) 29:11
… and most certainly will God mark out those who have attained to faith, and most certainly will He mark out the hypocrites.

Muhammad 47:30-31
Now had We so willed, We could have shown them clearly to thee, so that thou wouldst know them for sure as by a visible mark: but thou wilt most certainly recognize them by the tone of their voice. And God knows all that you do.

And most certainly We shall try you all, so that We might mark out those of you who strive hard [in Our cause] and are patient in adversity: for We shall put to a test [the truth of] all your assertions.
Ar-Rahman (The Most Beneficent) 55:41
All who were lost in sin shall by their marks be known, and shall by their forelocks and their feet be seized!

Al-Hadid (Iron) 57:25
Indeed, did We send forth Our apostles with all evidence of truth; and through them We bestowed revelation from on high, and [thus gave you] a balance [wherewith to weigh right and wrong], so that men might behave with equity; and We bestowed from on high iron, in which there is awesome power as well as benefits for man: and so that God might mark out those who would stand up for Him and His Apostle, even though He is beyond the reach of human perception. Verily, God is Powerful, Almighty!

Al-Qalam (The Pen)
68:16 سَنَسِمُهُ عَلَى الْخُرْطُومِ
68:16 We shall brand him on the nose [muzzle, snout]!

My only comment is --If you want people to pay attention You have to write more clearly.
