Pondering of the 12 by Tehvul Garcia
As was commonly practiced amongst the various Mystery Schools, throughout the course of recorded time, metaphors have been used as a tool to conceal certain aspects of the Mystery at hand. The Christian Mystery was certainly no exception to such a time honored and effective form of concealment. An example of which can be noted pertaining to some of the very core principals of the Christian Mystery as it dwelt underground shortly after the crucifixion of Jesus.
It is relayed through the various Gospels the crucifixion of the Christ occurred at a place not far from the gates of Jerusalem known as Golgotha. Now the name Golgotha is the Greek translation of the Aramaiec word Gagulta which means “Place of the Skull”. Which brings us to another point in the Mystery that must be observed so a proper understanding of the Mystery can be achieved.
Christ is a Greek translation of Kraist or Christós which basically means “anointed”. In the Hebrew tongue it’s pronunciation is “Masia?” or “Messiah” as is commonly known and referred. Anointment has long been associated with Royalty or as in this case a Divine Influence. Once bestowed with the oil, as commonly was done, the one anointed was then said to have been cleansed in a ritualized manner as is referred by Paul in his epistle to the Romans.
It should be clear by now that what we have here is something quite interesting as what we are being told by the Mystery is something is being referred to in a occult manner. Something in a physiological sense to do with the head. To the skull. A mystery of anointment which occurred at Golgotha.
Now looking inward we find in our skull 12 cranial nerves.
Cranial nerves are part of our Peripheral Nervous System. Now of course the exception to this rule is the Optic Nerve as the Optic Nerve connects to our Retina which makes them both part not of the Peripheral Nervous System but truly part of the Central Nervous System. With the above noted let us now continue.
One of the closest of the Disciples of Jesus was often referred to as the “twin” of Jesus. Didymos Judas Thomas was his name, and in his Gospel he recorded the following words of the Christ.
“When you make the two into one. And when you make the inner as the outer. And the upper as the lower. And when you make male and female into a single one. So the male shall not be male. And the female shall not be female. Then you will enter the Kingdom.”
Most certainly a confusing utterance to the profane who lack the eyes to see and the ears to hear but to the properly initiated individual who was well versed in the hermeneutic technique of interpretive reading it becomes very clear Didymos Judas Thomas was providing a record of the words spoken by the Christ that had a literal organic meaning again in a physiological sense as was noted previously.
Interestingly enough we know the 12 cranial nerves are actually paired. As is the case with the Brain with it’s Left and Right Hemispheres. Then we must also consider the Brain Stem. Which some of the 12 paired nerves directly emerge from as is the case with the brain itself.
It is important to mention the Gospel of Thomas is unlike the other approved Gospels as the Gospel of Thomas is clearly an original account whereas the approved 4 are copies whose origins are of a time after the accounting of the Christ as provided by Thomas. So a case can be made, with founded reason, for speculation as to why 4 later copies of Gospels were eventually accepted and an original Gospel who predates the 4 was not approved.
Perhaps a proper evaluation of Neoplatonism and Gnosticism will help the seeker of self attain a better understanding of the work of the Demiurge as it is well known Neoplatonism and Gnosticism were extremely influential in the development of what would later become the Christian Faith.
Before I excuse myself I would like to thank you for your time, and interest, and will leave you with the incipit of Thomas.
“These are the hidden words that the living Jesus spoke and that Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down. Said by the Christ was “Whoever finds the meaning of these words will not taste death.”
