The Queen of Athens

1  The symbol to the left represents the Queen of Athens, and is inspired from the fifteenth picture of Kari Byron I downloaded as part of the Kari Portal in the next chapter (n22:1). And here, Kari is standing in front of a Discovery Channel backdrop, that also says MythBusters, wearing a white dress with clusters of little red flowers. And, although it's not uncommon for women to wear floral print dresses, of the 80 or so downloads, this is the only one where Kari wears a floral print dress. And indeed, the Queen of Athens was set in charge of the Anthesteria or, Festival of Flowers! (n4:5; n5:12). While the pattern on the dress looks remarkably similar to the symbol!

Here is a link to the picture on the Internet:

2  The symbol to the right shows how the number 576 fits in. And, since the numbers 15 and 575 (14 x 41 + 1) typically portray the Queen of Athens (n4:5-6), this is advanced a step further by plotting the number 576 on the cross which, in effect grounds everything and signifies the Marriage (7) of Heaven (5) and Earth (6). It's also detailed in the last chapter (n20:9) and, in chapters 1 (n32) and 6 (n58).

3  As I said in chapter 4 (n3-4), the Gerarai were equivalent to two harmonic levels in the musical scale or, fourteen notes. And, where one octave (meaning eight) equaled eight notes, it now equals fifteen, in terms of Gerarai. This is also illustrated in the symbol to the left, as well as the relation to the number 575, which is 14 x 41 (Rachel x Leah) + 1. Although it initially begins with the number 574 (14 x 41) and proceeds to the number 576. This is detailed further below (n8).

The Great Seal

4  The symbol is also borrowed from the Great Seal of the United States on the back of a dollar bill, which shows the thirteen five-pointed stars representing the thirteen original colonies, which form into a hexagram or six-sided star—or, the fourteenth star. Albeit the symbol only portrays ten five-pointed stars, for I replaced the three—top, center and bottom—with the number 576 above. They still represent stars, however.

5  It's also detailed in chapter 10 (n1-8), regarding Ephraim and Manasseh, the two sons of Joseph, who were adopted by Israel. Whereby Ephraim, the younger, becomes the fourteenth son and represents Great Britain, the 5th Church (n1:30); and Manasseh, the elder, becomes the thirteenth son and represents the United States, the 6th Church (n1:31). And together, in accord with Russia, they signify the marriage (7) or, 7th Church (n1:36-38; n10:21-28). While it's uncanny how the stars portray the relationship between Great Britain and the United States! (n10:13).

Circumscribed Circle

6  Also, where I circumscribed a circle around the original seven aspects of the hexagram in chapter 8 (n7-12), which signified the body or flesh (of the Ten Commandments), here only the outline the hexagram is created with the thirteen stars, without drawing it in. Once it is drawn in, however, it signifies the body or flesh of the original thirteen or, fourteenth aspect. Although I have yet to circumscribe a circle around the hexagram itself which, once I do, it becomes the fifteenth aspect, in accord with the Queen of Athens.

7  So, in effect I'm saying both the fourteenth and fifteenth aspects corresponds to the body, although it seems to apply more to the star itself, or Rachel (14). If, however, you multiply 14 x 41 (Rachel x Leah), which are reciprocals and also shown in the symbol, you get 574. And, although it's still Rachel's number, it portrays the body or flesh outside of the hexagram, while further defining the hexagram. So, once you do circumscribe a circle, both the body of the hexagram and the body on the outside are portrayed, and so becomes the fifteenth aspect which, in accord with the number 575, becomes the domain of the queen. As for how you get from the number 574 to 576, this is detailed below.

Numbers 574 - 576

8  The symbol to the left shows the center of the hexagram defined by the two major triangles and the number 7. While the six secondary triangles, which are basically the Greek letter delta, are defined by the number 4 (n6:80). And, so long as you aren't trying to reference the top from the bottom, the left from the right, etc., it will always read as 474 (symmetrically). If, however, you leave the secondary triangle references out, it leaves you with the number 070 or, 70.

Prudence 15 / 70

9  Which is the strangest thing, for when I downloaded pictures 70 through 74, I don't recall numbering them in that order. But, when I first saw the one I labeled 70, it was the uncropped version of download 15 above (n1), and I questioned if I should even use it. Or, if I did, I would probably have to crop it anyway, meaning I should just go ahead use the one already labeled 15. Anyway, when I first downloaded the fifteenth picture, I automatically said this was Prudence (5), because it reminded me of Prudence the most. And, if I hadn't already downloaded the first fourteen from Kari's page (n22:1), I would have assigned it Prudence's number.

10  But then I said Hey, if I'm going to use it twice, why don't I assign it the number 70, because it was 5 x 14 (Prudence x Rachel) and signified the completion of the fifth tier or, sequence. While I almost sensed instinctively that it belonged here. And, in accord with the number 474, it does signify the center of the hexagram and, in fact the center of everything. While I'm amazed, because I didn't realize it until well over a year after I assigned the value. And, look at how easily it fits when referencing the top!

Referencing the Top

11  Now if you wish to reference the top, in accord with say, the crux of the cross above (n1), which signifies heaven or, the husband (5), you change the 4 to a 5 in the top triangle, which now reads (after multiplying 14 x 41 on the sides) 574 from top to bottom. Although the actual crux is portrayed by the large dot beneath the number 5.

12  Of course you haven't really circumscribed a circle around anything yet (albeit shown), which is done by creating a top (changing the 4 to 5) in all of the secondary triangles, as shown to the right. Except now you've just lost the top, because it's become fully symmetrical (like the number 474) once again. It's clear that you've circumscribed the circle, however, for it now reads 575, in accord with the Queen of Athens, whichever way you look at it.

13  In order to reorient it, all you do is decide where you want the bottom (the second dot on the symbol to the right, for example), which signifies the earth or, the wife (6), and change the 5 to a 6. Which now reads 576 from top to bottom, in accord with the marriage (7) of heaven (5) and earth (6). Which is exactly what's displayed at the top (n1).

Masonic Emblem

14  Finally there's the relation to the Masonic emblem, which shows a compass laid over a square with the letter G in the middle, which is loosely based upon the Star of David (n6:30). It too looks like it's incorporated in the symbol at the top, except without the circle. When including the circle, however, it looks more like the Seal of Solomon, which gets even closer to what it means. While indeed, the Masons trace their lineage all the way back to the construction of Solomon's temple, and the Dionysian Architects who were commissioned to build it. Who later called themselves the Sons of Solomon and adopted his seal (np:3).

15  As for Solomon's Seal, the upright triangle signifies the eternal masculine at its height, and the inverted triangle signifies the eternal feminine at its depth. In other words from peak to peak (of the hexagram), you've just joined the eternal husband (5), with the eternal wife (6), in marriage (7). And, in accord with the Masonic emblem, where the letter G is shown in the center, which stands for geometry (sacred geometry?), and is also the seventh letter (n6:30) or, in accord with center of the hexagram in general (n6), it's defined by the number 576. So there it is once again!
