Parthalon Flyingsnake DeCoursy sees Space Time by Bernie Quigley on 2005-06-18

In the environment of the Surrealist it was a commonplace that consciousness was systemic (Jung, Madame Blavatsky, Khrisnamurti) and things occurred in the consciousnes of varied individuals at the same time - the famous moment came at a difinitive event - when the atomic bomb was exploded in 1945, a blind girl "saw" it 120 miles away. But early Einstein taught as well that past and future time was illusion as well. The dryad in this picture in this picture is an eolementary element in northern Europe's Old Soul. The living tree, who visits Tolkein as well, is a common archetype to Celt,Gaelic culture. It is Green Man (Cernunnus), consort to Mother Earth, his face covered with vines. In the Rosslyn Chapel there are over 120 carvings of Green Man, most all with vines like this, and only one of Jesus. Over the ages the living vines mouph into the crown of thorns. The moon she is cross. Parthalon Flyingsnake DeCoursy
