(“The top is like the below”)
MACROPROSOPVS – Macrocosm
MICROPROSOPVS – Microcosm
Note the Knights Templar cross in the middle, the crown, the pyramid at the bottom, and the Ouroboros. I’ll go into more detail regarding symbols later in the thread.
There will come a time when it will have been in vain that Egyptians have honored the Godhead with heartfelt piety and service; and all our holy worship will be fruitless and ineffectual. The Elohim will return from earth to heaven; Egypt will be forsaken, and the land which was once the home of religion will be left desolate, bereft of the presence of its deities.
They will no longer love this world around us, this incomparable work of YHWH, this glorious structure which HE has built, this sum of good made up of many diverse forms, this instrument whereby the will of YHWH operates in that which he has made, ungrudgingly favoring man’s welfare.
Darkness will be preferred to light, and death will be thought more profitable than life; no one will raise his eyes to heaven; the pious will be deemed insane, the impious wise; the madman will be thought a brave man, and the wicked will be esteemed as good.
As for the soul, and the belief that it is immortal by nature, or may hope to attain to immortality, as I have taught you; all this they will mock, and even persuade themselves that it is false. No word of reverence or piety, no utterance worthy of heaven, will be heard or believed.
And so the Elohiym will depart from mankind – a grievous thing and only evil angels will remain, who will mingle with men, and drive the poor wretches into all manner of reckless crime, into wars, and robberies, and frauds, and all things hostile to the nature of the soul.
Then will the earth tremble, and the sea bear no ships; heaven will not support the stars in their orbits, all voices of the Elohiym will be forced into silence; the fruits of the Earth will rot; the soil will turn barren, and the very air will sicken with sullen stagnation; all things will be disordered and awry, all good will disappear.
But when all this has befallen, then YHWH the Creator of all things will look on that which has come to pass, and will stop the disorder by the counterforce of his will, which is the good. HE will call back to the right path those who have gone astray; he will cleanse the world of evil, washing it away with floods, burning it out with the fiercest fire, and expelling it with war and pestilence.
Many ponder what the true meaning of As Above, So Below and its origins. This saying traces back to Mercurius ter Maximus (Hermes Trismegistus(Thrice Great)); AKA: Thoth, Zoroaster, Chiquetet Arlich Vomalites. The phrase is derived from the Emerald Tablets/Smaragdine Table/Tabula Smaragdina/The Secret of Hermes.
The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus is a short work which coins the well known term in occult circles “As above, so below.” The actual text of that maxim, as translated by Dennis W. Hauck is “That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing”. The tablet also refers to the three parts of the wisdom of the whole universe. Hermes claims his knowledge of these three parts is why he received the name Trismegistus (thrice-great, or Ao-Ao-Ao meaning “greatest”). As the story is told, this tablet was found by Alexander the Great at Hebron supposedly in the tomb of Hermes.
Picture upon picture can be found displaying this concept:

The crosses on each side are used within the Dark Knights of the Solar Cross order. Another crown…with the letters O.T.O, or Ordo Templi Orientis
So what does it mean?
The microcosm is oneself, and the macrocosm is the universe. The macrocosm is as the microcosm, and vice versa; within each lies the other, and through understanding one you can understand the other. The primary idea behind this is that the “above” refers to what is visible in the sky. The below, refers to Earth. This creates an equality as it explains how the Earth is a microcosm of the configuration of the planets in the solar system. It draws the connection that the Earth is affected by planetary orbits. This concept also affects various levels of reality: physical, emotional, and mental What happens on any level happens on every other.
The concept has not only been a practice, but an attempt to replicate and do a better job then YHWH himself. This is why alchemy and astrology play such an important role in the Illuminati.
In Alchemy, there is a process which Mercury and Lead can supposedly turned to Gold. The Gold isn’t the main goal. It’s to understand the process of how mercury or lead changes into gold. Man wants to replicate and modify what is on the Earth into their standards.
I cannot place enough emphasis on how heavily the elite rely on alchemy, astrology, and symbolism.
The Ouroboros: That Which Devours Itself
The Ouro (tail) boros (eating) (He who eats the tail) goes back to the Egyptians and possibly further back to Babylon or Sumer. Greece, China, India, Japan, the Middle East, Romans, and Native Americans have all had some form of art that represented this symbol. Freemasons, and Theosophical societies often reference it as well. The double Ouroboros or symbol for infinity, when flipped vertically, represents the As Above, So Below concept as well.
The first record of the Ouroboros in Egypt
The Ouroboros represents Eternity, The Zodiac (Precession of the Equinoxes), Winter/Summer Solstices, Reincarnation, Immortality, and the Cycles of the Universe and of Life itself. This Ouroboros is notably a double, with a Dragon and a Serpent. This also incorporates the concepts of Heaven and Earth, of Mind and Body into the greater idea. This symbol has also been associated with alchemy as a purifying glyph. The Ouroboros slays himself and brings himself to life again, fertilizes himself and gives birth to himself. This is much like the cycle of the Phoenix, the feminine archetype.
Within the Ouroboros is a double tetrahedron or six sided star. There are many meanings behind this. The double tetrahedron can be referred to as the interdimensional vehicle for travel, the Merkaba. It also incorporates the Duality, Male and Female, the Blade (upward pointing triangle) and Chalice. The blade represents the Physical, and the Chalice represents the Spiritual realm. The Star of Solomon can also represent Jerusalem.
If one marks the shadows of the sunrise at the Summer and Winter Solstices at the latitude of Jerusalem one creates an angle of exactly 60º. The Masonic compass is opened to an angle of 60º. The Square, with its angle of 90º, represents the northern British Isles, and Scotland.
The Square and Compass is the Blade and Chalice, God and Goddess in the act of Creation, and within the Star we find the Heavenly Luminaries or the Eyes or Spirits of God (the Planets).
The symbols on the star represent the astrological portion of the symbol, Jupiter, Venus, the Moon, Mercury, Mars and Saturn, with the Sun being at the center. Zoroaster’ teachings mentioned earlier in the thread as Thoth or Hermes, would be responsible for the seven petal flower depicted at the center.
Let us examine this slide which I feel holds many secrets. First you have the sun and moon in opposite positions which proves the world has been put on a purposeful pole shift done at the hands of man.
In the East where the sun is supposed to rise you now have the moon or crescent where there is a Brother with a sword with an eagle or falcon upon it where he is shielding his eyes from the light because it is either too bright or he cannot see because he is blinded by the darkness.
In the West where the sun is supposed to set, you now have the sun with a brother who can see clearly what is going on as he holds the staff and serpent.
In the middle is the LORD OR LORDS and KING OF KINGS who represent the union of both and has risen above the Abyss on the wings of destiny. The Phoenix or Rex Mundi who represents not only the union of East and West, but also AS ABOVE SO BELOW.
The Spiraling Snakes
More commonly seen as the medical symbol, this is known as the Caduceus of Hermes. The spiral effect indicates an expansion of knowledge, and the undulating dance of cosmic forces. The double snakes of the caduceus also represent duality and the unification of polar opposites, as well as displaying balance and integration polarities in order to strike harmony. Such dualities include:
If you take it a step further, you notice the dual intertwined snakes form a double helix DNA strand; Serpent DNA specifically. If the serpent is a biological anthropomorphism of DNA, then we can attribute the Ouroboros to cycles of DNA change.
Vertical rods/constructs are considered archetypal symbols of the phallus. As the dual serpents address the concept of gender, the staff serves as an emissary of transference between body and mind, physically and spiritually. The rod could also be viewed as a conduit between the mundane and ethereal.
In alchemy, the caduceus represents the conjugation of sulphur (male) and quicksilver (female). This symbol also infers the synthesis of opposites with the goal of unification and transformation.
Caduceus means “herald’s staff of office” in Greek, and the center rod was a symbol of Hermes who was the messenger of the Elohiym.
Guardians of a gate
Heavily associated with freemasonry, Leo, the Lion, the Double Lion, Routi, refers directly to the Sun as being a source of knowledge. Leo, is one of the constellations of the Zodiac. The Zodiac, is a direct reference to the Sun. The Sun’s position at midday during the time of the Egyptians coincided with the midsummer solstice. Leo was a constellation of the summer.
The theme of Illumination, Knowledge, or Secrets being kept “under the Lion’s Paw” is a recurring motif.
The Kabbala (Tree of Life) and the Tarot Major Arcana
Just as the symbolic rod of Caduceus, the Tree of Life connects the expanse between Earth to Heaven. In Hebrew, the word Kabbalah means “reception.”
The Major Arcana of the tarot consists of 22 cards. There are records of the Tarot existing in Egyptian times. The tarot has 22 cards as does the number of paths in the Qabbalah/Kabbalah Tree of Life. There are also 22 chromosomes in the human DNA. There are also 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet.
The main focus for the As Above, So Below concept is The Magician or Magikan. Oddly enough The Magician is associated with Mercury, the same planet as Hermes. It displays:
The Magician Tarot card deals with the ability to utilize every resource available to us. When we think of the Magician, we must understand that there is no question of power. He at number 1 and he is 1 and at one with himself and all creation.
The Magician has absolute power over all circumstances. He is in control of his own thoughts, and therefore the ruler of reality. The Magician is the bridge between the world of the spirit and the world of humanity.
His right hand holds a staff raised toward the sky and his left hand points to the earth. He takes the power of the Universe and channels it through his own body and directs it to the physical plane. His magical table holds all four suits of the Tarot, each of which represents one of the four primordial elements of the alchemists – earth, air, fire and water. These symbolise the appropriate use of mind, heart, body and soul in the process of manifestation. The Magician’s robe is white, symbolising the purity and innocence found in the Fool but his cloak is red, representing worldly experience and knowledge. In the bed of flowers at his feet this duality is repeated in the mix of pure white lilies and thorny red roses.
The key focus areas which I discussed previously are now very clear.
Lemniscate or the Double Ouroboros
The Lemniscate symbolizes the endless, infinite nature of energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. The infinity symbol above the Magician’s head illustrates that he understands the energy of his thoughts always lead to infinite consequence.
The Magician tarot card meaning is that energy is endless, and our ability to manipulate energy is key. The Ouroboros around his waist further signifies the concept of rebirth and regeneration. The Magician understands that rebirth occurs in each moment; Another source of his power. Most importantly, it is a symbol that stands for the maxim “one is all” which is the highest philosophy for the Magician.
The Elements: A wand, A cup, A pentacle, and A sword
The Magician is keenly aware that we are born prepared to live our lives. We each have the tools and resources within us to use at our whim. This is indicated by all the symbols of the suit shown within the Magicians grasp. The Magician realizes that he is the master of these tools, they are not his master. The Magician reminds us that everything we need to live our best life is available to us as long as we master the gifts of potential, and not become slaves to our circumstances.
The Solar Cross
Free Mason means Children of the Light who built up (tekton) their inner Temple. PHREE MESSEN, (CHILD OF LIGHT,)
The six sided star incorporates the Duality, Male and Female (Unity), the Blade (upward pointing triangle) and Chalice. The blade represents the Physical, and the Chalice represents the Spiritual realm. It is sometimes referenced as the fire and water triangle as well.
Moloch, Chiun and Remphan are all names for the star god, Saturn, whose symbol is a six pointed star formed by two triangles. Saturn was the supreme god of the Chaldeans. The hexagram is referred to the talisman of Saturn.
The hexagram was brought to the Jewish people by Solomon when he turned to witchcraft and idolatry after his marriage to Pharaoh’s daughter. It became known as the Seal of Solomon in Egyptian magic and witchcraft. The six pointed star was adopted as the family crest or shield by the Rothschild family during the 19th century. The Rothschilds bought a great deal of property in “Israel,” from the Turks and Arabs, and were largest financial supporters of the Zionist movement in the early decades. The influence of the Rothschilds and their heavy financial support of Israel, led the Jewish nation to adopt the so-called “Star of David” as their own symbol as a nation. This star isn’t even mentioned in the bible.
33, 22, 11…very important key numbers. I believe the below…as all of man’s intentions are to replicate the above as clearly seen in our dimension. The hollow/inner Earth would still count as the below because the skies/heavens, planets, and galaxies surround the Earth.
As guided from within, outwards. “As above, so below” and vice versa, Solar Systems are born, die and come to birth anew in cycles of activity and rest, as does wo-man.
There is a constant flaming out and dying down of activity in every department of nature, corresponding to the alternations of ebb and flow, day and night, summer and winter, life and death.
In the beginning of a Day of Manifestation it is taught that a certain Great Being (designated in the Western World by the name of God, but by other names in other parts of the earth) limits Himself to a certain portion of space, in which He elects to create a Solar System for the evolution of added self-consciousness.
He includes in His own Being hosts of glorious Hierarchies of, to us, immeasurable spiritual power and splendor. They are the fruitage of past manifestations of this same Being and also other Intelligences, in descending degrees of development down to such as have not reached a stage of consciousness as high as our present humanity, and therefore these latter will not be able to finish their evolution in this System. In God — this great collective Being — there are contained lesser beings of every grade of intelligence and stage of consciousness, from omniscience to an unconsciousness deeper than that of the deepest trance condition. During the period of manifestation with which we are concerned, these various grades of beings are working to acquire more experience than they possessed at the beginning of this period of existence. Those who, in previous manifestations, have attained to the highest degree of development, work on those who have not yet evolved any consciousness. They induce in them a stage of self-consciousness from which they can take up further work themselves. Those who had started their evolution in a former Day of Manifestation, but had not progressed far at the close, now take up their task again, just as we take up our daily work in the morning where we left off the previous night.
All the different Beings, however, do not take up their evolution at the early stages of a new manifestation. Some must wait until those who precede them have made the conditions which are necessary for their further development. There are no instantaneous processes in nature. All is an exceedingly slow unfolding, a development which, though so exceedingly slow, is yet absolutely certain to attain ultimate perfection. Just as there are progressive stages in the human life — childhood, youth, manhood or womanhood, and old age — so in the macrocosm there are different stages corresponding to these various periods of the microcosmic life.
A child cannot take up the duties of fatherhood or motherhood. Its undeveloped mental and physical condition render it incapable of doing such work. The same is true of the less evolved beings in the beginning of manifestation. They must wait until the higher evolved have made the proper conditions for them. The lower the grade of the intelligence of the evolving being, the more it is dependent upon outside help.
At the Beginning, then, the highest Beings — those who are the farthest evolved — work upon those who have the greatest degree of unconsciousness. Later, they turn them over to some of the less evolved entities, who are then able to carry the work a little further. At last self-consciousness is awakened. The evolving life has become Woman-Man.
There were three mystery schools in Egypt. The male school was the Right Eye of Horus. The female school was the Left Eye of Horus. The third school was the child, the Middle or Third Eye of Horus, which is life.
The mural shows the right eye, the left eye and the middle eye. This mural is the symbol for not only all three schools, but also the meaning and purpose of life itself. The right eye is male, the left eye is female and the middle eye is the child, the source of both the other two eyes, for we all begin life as a child.
The Left Eye of Horus, the feminine pathway, explores the human nature of emotions and feeling, both positive and negative, sexual energy and birthing, death, certain psychic energy, and everything that is not logical.
The right eye is controlled by the left brain; it’s male knowledge. Although the right eye “sees” directly to the right brain, this is not what the Egyptians were communicating. It is not the “seeing” but rather the interrupting of the “seeing” information that was important here. It is the left brain that makes this interruption of what is seen; it controls the right side of the body, and vice versa. In the same manner, the Left Eye of Horus, controlled by the right brain, is female knowledge.
Mercury makes the Hexagram and Venus the pentagram:
