The horrible hairy homeward-hurrying hogs of Hieronymus

I keep finding more in the central cover illustration of Animalia by Graeme Base:


As discussed in "GAEL," what I noticed first was the lion, green gorilla, and elephant, arranged in a line along the left side of the picture. Then I noticed that one of the elephants in the book is apparently named Eric, and that the cover shows an elephant right next to a knight on horseback -- encoding the name of Eric Knight, the author of the novel Lassie Come-Home. Just below Eric and the Knight is a golden jackal, suggesting the golden dog on the cover of Lassie Come Home. In my post "Lassie Come Home," I recorded a hunch that Lassie has something to do with the Woman of Revelation 12, who is menaced by the Dragon and has to go into hiding. Sure enough, right above Eric and the Knight on the cover is a menacing-looking dragon in flight. The D page in Animalia is titled "Diabolical Dragons Daintily Devouring Delicious Delicacies." Revelation 12 says that the Dragon is "called the Devil" (i.e, diabolical) and that it "stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born."

The Knight carries a banner, the end of which points to a herd of zebra -- a juxtaposition which suggests the zebra-striped flag of Brittany:


The flag of Normandy, the other part of Armorica, is a red field with two gold lions.

Under the banner is another black-and-white animal, an ostrich. In The Satanic Verses, the image of an out-of-place ostrich running along the English beach is associated with the Norman conquest. Rosa Diamond has just been daydreaming about that history -- "Come on, you Norman ships, she begged: let's have you, Willie-the-Conk" -- when

Running along the midnight beach in the direction of the Martello tower and the holiday camp, -- running along the water's edge so that the incoming tide washed away its footprints, -- swerving and feinting, running for its life, there came a full-grown, large-as-life ostrich.

These references to travel between Britain and Armorica fit right in with "The Gospel of Luke on Lobsterback," where I even propose that the "lobsters" may actually be soldiers, like our Knight. The Knight has the face of a hog, and both hogs and lobsters are well-known as non-kosher animals. As in Peter's vision in Acts, "unclean" animals may symbolize "Gentiles" -- the Gentiles entrusted with bringing the lost sheep of Israel, and their lost Gospel of Light, safely home:

I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people; and they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders (1 Ne. 21:22).

The language is from Isaiah, of course, and for "set up my standard" many translations have something like "raise high my banner."

Confirmation that this hog Knight with his banner has to do with the Lassie Come Home story can be found on the H page of Animalia, where we learn that the hogs on horseback are "hurrying homeward":


William Wright's recent post about Ali with an I and Daniel with an L led me to look up a 2019 post of mine about Dante's claim that I and EL were the two earliest names for God. I was surprised to find that the post also included this detail from a painting by Hieronymus Bosch:


My interest at the time was in the owl, and how it proves that the creature in the basket in Bosch's painting The Conjurer is also an owl (not a monkey, as some have claimed). Looking at it now, though, what I see is an anthropomorphic hog, like our Knight, leading a golden dog on a leash -- as if bringing Lassie home. He is also dressed in dark green and carries a lute, suggesting this detail from the L page of Animalia:


Hieronymus is the Latin form of the name Jerome. I don't know how I could have posted so much about lions in a library, even referring to the library as a "study," without making the connection with Albrecht Dürer's famous copper engraving Saint Jerome in His Study:


Sleeping on the floor next to the saint's pet lion is a contented-looking dog. Lassie has come home.

One more thing to mention. In the vision described in "Étude brute?" -- which primed me to notice the Lions in a Library image in Animalia -- an indirect vision of the Holy Family -- Joseph and his wife and son, radiating light to bright for me to look at them (perhaps identical to William Wright's "Family of Light"?) -- was followed by my being led into a library or study by a "Bull of Heaven," which I described as being "something like an aurochs." Later I noted that the Bull is a traditional symbol of the House of Joseph. This symbolism comes from Deuteronomy:

[Joseph's] glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh (Deut. 33:17).

Where the King James has unicorns, the Douay-Rheims translation favored by Catholics has -- following no less an authority than Saint Jerome himself! -- rhinoceros. Most modern translations have wild ox, meaning the aurochs. These three animals, then, may be considered interchangeable as symbols of the House of Joseph. Here they are on the cover of Animalia:


The unicorn and rhinoceros caught my eye first, but there's also a yak in the background. Does that count as a "wild ox"? We usually think of the yak as a domestic animal, but there are still wild yaks in the Himalayas. The domestic yak is Bos grunniens ("grunting ox"), while the wild yak is Bos mutus ("silent ox"). Why bring up the scientific names? Because I specifically described the animals in my vision as "silent bulls."

Immediately after the "Willie-the-Conk" reference, Rosa Diamond goes on to muse that "Nine hundred years ago [when the Normans invaded] all this was under water . . . . The coastline had changed, had moved a mile or more out to sea, leaving the first Norman castle stranded far from water, lapped now by marshy land . . . ."

According to Joseph Smith, Egypt was also underwater when it was discovered:

"The land of Egypt being first discovered by a woman, who was the daughter of Ham, and the daughter of Egyptus, which in the Chaldean signifies Egypt, which signifies that which is forbidden; when this woman discovered the land it was under water, who afterward settled her sons in it; and thus, from Ham, sprang that race which preserved the curse in the land" (Abr. 1:23-24).

The hogs' banner has Egyptian hieroglyphics on it, and of course hogs could be a punning reference to "Ham." Hogs are also shorthand for "that which is forbidden" to Jews and Muslims, symbolism which appears prominently in The Satanic Verses.

William,

And speaking of Bullocks:
Bullocks or Bull sh*t is a DUMP( as in Dumpty) composed of toxins.
The toxins are heavy and we carry its WEIGHT in our behind/Fanny.

The Eggman (which is us humans) is created by Humping (intercourse).

copy and paste from etymology.
hump (v.)

"to bend or raise into a hump," 1840, from hump (n.). Meaning "do the sex act with" is attested from 1785, but the source indicates it is an older word. Related: Humped; humper; humping.
~~~~~

A riddle's (knock knock Twin D's ) purpose is to solve the puzzle.
A puzzle unsolved is Chaos.

When a Moon-Key is given to us it allows us to open the gate/door
as opposed to just knocking.

Regarding the El's :

The L's,
EL's (suffix or prefix ) is a Power Source,
aka a Shinning One ( i.e. bright, light, white ).

All power sources can be used for good OR evil.
Light can help guide us OR A SIRIUS-LY bright white light can blind us.
(Blinded by the light).


El-izabeth is a Liz
El-ectric ( hisses like an eel or snake or a Liz-ard)
El=ect
El-ites
El-even (meaning El's are even, i.e. "level" or have "alike" power (11:11 )
Israel
Hills, Wills (twin L's) both power sources. A hill is high
requiring will power to climb. The helma protects the head.
The captain takes the Helm.

A vote ( voltage) is a charge.
A hiss, a kiss , an SS. Twin S's. S is the 19th letter in the alphabet.
1+9= 10 reduced to a single digit equals 1.
Two 1's are 11.

And speaking of SS ; Vril is a Controllable form of energy
Omitting the vowel, VRL, phonically, is an L.

My response;
This particular scripture(?) is what justified chattel slavery in Colonial America.
Black preachers (who were forbidden to read) were 'told' to preach the gospel
to the slaves, that Black people were cursed because they were the descendants
of Ham and according to the Bible, to obey their masters.

Little did the Black ministers know that
a cheap labor source is imperative for building empires.

Sex, Power and Money (all Ego pursuits) are the three things
that'runs' this duality dimension.
Its as simple as that.

I believe that it's our Ego/EVIL pursuits: Hate, greed, division, arrogance, ignorance, jealousy, lust, which burdens us with THE WEIGHT, which is why we
(much like the Eggman that we are) continue to Fall Down and perhaps it's the reason why
Ma'at (an Egyptian forbidden female?) will not allow us back into 'heaven'
until we dump The Weight.

William,

I just wanted to add to my comment about the Moon-Key which is this:
a Moon-Key gives us the ability to 'see beyond the illusion,
as it is through the dark knight where we find the truth.

Recall in my previous comments about the Moon-Key
and the 1995 movie 12 Monkeys. (see link)

Starting at frame/marker 0:15 clip and right after Jeffery (played by Brad Pitt)
gives James(played by Bruce Willis) the moon-key, listen to the TV's news cast
speaking of ***changes sweeping the world**** and a Bear is shown.

Interestingly, and ask yourself:
who are the countries (on the World Stage right now) symbolic of a Bear?
Hint: Panda, Polar/Bern, and Great.

Also note in the news clip
the Bears claws turns to hooves. Bovine Hooves? Cow and/or Buffalo perhaps?

Recall the Red Heifer significance of the Third Temple, which of course
would qualify as ' changes sweeping the world'.

Buffalo is symbolic of the American West and the expansion
of the American Empire, as is a Bear (California).

Hogs also have hooves. And of course, as you know
in many cultures including Asian,
the Hog is celebrated. (see link)

Also in the clip starting abt marker 1:03 note the old man mentioning 500 dollars
and Jeffery's reference to: window of opportunity.
Recall I shared with you several times my July 14, 2014 MOON River dream.
Recall in that Moon River dream a reference to '50', which in
the dream, I felt a 50 to be some type of gun, which
of course is a Power Source.

A 50 Jubilee means 'return to property (see link)

Also, note in the clip Jeffery's reference to monkey business as he creates Chaos.
Abt marker/frame 1:15 listen to the Black "Orderly" worker tells Jeffery
to: stop being a Fool.

The archetype of the Fool/trickster/clown is to distract.
Recall my previous comments about WHY the purpose of the
creation of: whipping boys.

Of course out of Chaos, comes order.

Also starting abt 0:28 listen to Jeffery make reference to :"Danger Will
Robinson" which Danger Will Robinson
is somewhat of a popular culture reference from the 1960's show
Lost in Space. Which interesting has 'Jupiter' connections.

copy and paste wiki"
"Will Robinson (Bill Mumy) – The youngest child. A precocious 9-year-old in the first season, he is a child prodigy in electronics and computer technology"
~~~~~
Recall my gazillion comments about
my perspective and prediction (my solved puzzle) of what I believe
is humanity's future and Transhumanism via A I.
" Danger Will Robinson? "


And speaking of Monkees check out
the 1952 trailer of Monkey Business(link below)
Check out Rudolph's (the chimp) number, which interestingly is FIVE.
Rudolph meaning famous Wolf.
There's also reference to 11 in this clip.
~~~~~
Perhaps riddles are given to those and for those
who have the I's to Sea and the thirst for knowledge so
as to solve the puzzle which in turn brings order to the chaos
( the chaos being the bitter and stormy sea).

William,

I just want to add this one more thing which I'm sure you are aware of
about the connection of Black People and the Church of the Latter Day Saints
and the curse of Ham.

As mentioned in my previous comment regarding this, the Christian Church
used this Curse of Ham theology to justify chattel slavery and ultimately
a peonage system so as to maintain a cheap labor source to build the empire.

copy and paste ( link below )
"Because of this, Noah cursed Ham's son, Canaan to be "servants of servants".
  Although the scriptures do not mention Ham's skin color, some doctrines associated the curse with Black people and used it to justify slavery. 
~~~~~~~

I recall this curse of Ham theology
being taught in the Black community, especially through the Baptist church
and I and family were never believers. As previously mentioned, during chattel
slavery the Black Baptist Ministers were told what to preach as they didn't know
how to read as it was forbidden.

I personally believe in reincarnation and that we are more than our physical
bodies. I personally believe that the soul incarnates ( incarcerates)
in many cultures and many skins and both genders, because if not, what
would be the point, especially given the concept that the soul incarnates in this
duality dimension (Earth) to learn lessons/knowledge in order to evolve.

When we 'walk a mile in another's shoes' we learn love
and compassion and respect for our fellow man/woman
which of course is not conducive to division, war and power
which are ego pursuits.

I do believe however that we incarnate through the same bloodline, which as
we both know, blood has been 'intermixed' for a very very long time, especially
in America.

Sex, Power and Money indeed.
Ohh...The Weight we carry.

I included the Levitation book in the photo just for you, Debbie! I don’t have much to say about it myself, though. Levitation is your gig, not mine.

Ra1119bee said...


William,

Yes thank you for posting it.

However and I'm sure you would agree,
the illustrator must have known of the open levitation' book's significance.
I don't think it was a coincidence.
Especially the book's placement so very close to the El(L) which of course
you have commented about elves lately, no?

Also in the illustration, the L (EL) Phrygian cap is elongated, which I recall elongated
heads being in your blog's syncs in the past.

I think my point being that, and IMHO, everything is connected.
