"Secret Sun" goes back to my childhood. It refers to a recurring dream I've had since I was very young in which the Sun comes out in the middle of the night, but only a select few know about it.
I actually coined the term sitting in the 33rd St Path station one day in 1996 because my publisher (Sirius Entertainment) told me I had to come with a personal imprint name for my comic, Halo, An Angel's Story. A woman was reading a Gabriel Garcia Marquez book that looked like it had an eclipse on the cover, and suddenly the phrase popped into my head. But I've been never able to find the book cover in question after all these years.
It didn't occur to me until very, very recently that there may in fact be a secret sun hiding behind all of the Mysteries and Masonry and all the rest of it. Now, I'm not necessarily saying such a thing exists, I'm saying the symbols seem to be pointing to a belief in such a thing. And it would be a secret because it's where the gods came from.
This whole bit with Ra and his green sun that we looked at the other day has opened up a major can of worms in my already-overcrowded brain. It fills in a lot of gaps in this ongoing mystery story. And on Saturday, I suddenly realized it ties right into Exhibit A of the Masonic character of our ruling class, which even schoolchildren know about today...
To recap, a blogger delved into some Egyptian texts and realized that Ra's sun is green, ringed, and travels from west to east every day. The ringed bit caused some readers to assume this may be Saturn, which is a fair guess. But this is a sun we're talking about, and Saturn has different correspondences altogether. The Egyptians probably also knew about about "sundogs," or parhelions, since they are a rare but not unknown occurance, as we see in this Renaissance painting.
The description of a green sun with a series of rings might be complete fabrication, of course. If in fact they describe Saturn, we're up against a mystery once again, since history tells us Saturn's rings weren't discovered until 1610. We have no record of telescopes being used by the Egyptians and yet we have a heavenly body surrounded by rings described in Egyptian myth.
I know this is impossible and everything, but what the green sun and the rings might describe are the atmospheric conditions on an alien planet, which cause the Sun to appear green and ringed.
Horus and Ra are often syncretized, but in fact are two separate entities in mythology. Horus was said to be an earthly king who instituted the dynasty of the Horus Kings as well as being a Helios-type solar embodiment. Here we see Horus with his father Osiris, whom we'll look at in a moment. Horus is obviously a young man, dressed in the garb of an Egyptian warrior.
Here is Ra: also hawk-headed and wearing the Sun Disk, but an obviously older and more august figure. Noticed the checked pattern of his tunic as well as the black and white design on his chest-piece. Remind you of anything?
Now, we know that Ra is not on Earth- he returned to his home in space where he looks over the Netjer. Of all the gods, only Ra and Osiris are in "The Heavens," meaning outer space. And we know now that Ra symbolizes the green sun...
..and Osiris himself has green skin. So why green? We see green today as representing the Earth; why would it be associated with the two heavenly figures in Egyptian mythology? Note the candy cane crook, which Jake has written about, as well as that alternating dark-light block pattern again).
Ra is also symbolized by the Udjat, the "All-Seeing Eye," as is Horus. Why would this important symbol - which symbolizes monarchy - represent two different characters? Maybe there's been a long-standing misinterpretation- there are two different udjats representing two different suns. One is our yellow sun, and the other is, of course...
...Green. There's your green sun, right there on the back of the dollar bill.
Which poses a question: is this the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Ra? The phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum, which made the news again when Nancy Pelosi was sworn in as Speaker of the House, might be interpreted to argue in favor of Horus. It comes from The Aeneid, written by the Roman poet Virgil:
"The last prophecy has come to the Cumaean Sibyl; a brand new great order of the ages is born; for now the Virgin and the age of Saturn have returned; now a new Child has been sent from the heavens."
But the seal is a jumble in some ways- we have the invocation to Horus, son of the Virgin and Saturn (Osiris), but Annuit Coeptis comes from an invocation to Jupiter. But Jupiter was also identified with Amun, who also later came to be identified with Ra (as Amen Ra). Religion was very confusing back then.
I do think this Eye is Ra, since the headline there has the Jupiter bit, and the announcement of the "coming child" is addressed by the reverse of the seal...
...this is Horus, the war bird. Note the arrows are in the left hand, which reminds us of the "left hand path" and Crowley's conquering Horus of The Book of the Law. We see the same identification of the eagle with Horus (through 17) on the golden dollar.
Now remind yourself again we're talking about the Great Seal of the United States, which we are supposed to believe was founded as a "Christian" nation. It doesn't matter what nonsense your history teacher sold you, these symbols are not vague and amorphous civic niceties, they all had very specific meanings and correspondences in the pre-Christian world. This is all sun god stuff we're looking at, there's no question about it. And it's also all colored in green.
So why is the dollar green? No one seems to know. But the Eye of Ra and all of the rest of Masonic symbolism might be pointing to Ra and his green sun. In a purely mythological fashion, of course.
But it begs the question: what is the real lost secret of Freemasonry?
