The Sword of the Fifth Element and the Long Tail

There’s a ‘long tail’ – or long tale – to the things we create, if we live (and believe) long enough and don’t forget too much but let it all simmer on a long-term ‘back burner’ – or perhaps call it an athanor, or alchemist’s oven, which would slowly heat ingredients to fuse them together.

An example from many in my life here at Dreamspace recently: the short epic love/sacred quest story set in ancient Cornwall and Aeden. I wrote this spinoff/sidetrack from the epic Apples of Aeden about a decade ago, printed and hand-bound it with embossed covers, uploaded it as an ebook, free here https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/153457 and gradually forgot about it as uptake was slow and feedback online almost non-existent. But brother John (of Greenstone Pictures and now flying solo at www.boyfellinpond.com sees a beauty to it and the possibility of a short film, and has commissioned me to make a new edition of even greater ornateness as the centrepiece of the film development… complete with silver medallion of the Forging of the Sword of the Fifth Element. …which is handy because I have been getting a passable silversmithing setup going here at dreamspace gallery and workshops. www.dreamspace.nz

Here’s a draft of the design for the medallion. Watch this space… the book and the medallion – and the film, should we be spared – will hold much sacred magic, long incubated in the Harris brothers’ Athanor…

Vitruvian Human

This may be a more comfortable name for them – wo-man,  sheman etc are all perhaps a bit odd or biased one way or another… So, here they are photoshopped to look like… well, like the vision in my mind, more or less… The sculpture won’t have the glow, unless at night…

The little people on the woman are (from volume iv of the Apples of Aeden) the refugee fairies of Aeden, who get taken on the ship to eastern lands, seeking Avalon.  see https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/320474

The woman spreads her arms to the horizon, loving all the earth, while the man reaches up and makes contact with heaven, in the form of the diamond World, and the heartstone which ascended.

Vitruvian Sheman

A possible theme for an heroic-romantic sculpture of the Balance at Eutopia? I was thinking recently about what could be an image for the Possible Human, moving beyond the magnificent but martial and solo male David by Michelangelo:

I was thinking about my ‘Live Hand in Hand’ image of the man and woman,

then of the vitruvian man,

also my concept drawing for the courtyard dome:

and wondered, could a couple be standing in a circle looking out from the prow of the Eutopian ship?

Then this evening I stumbled on this while searching the wonderful google images. It is in an article here: http://blog.world-mysteries.com/strange-artifacts/da-vincis-big-secret-part-1/

“Union of Woman and Man

The geometric pattern seen below has been proposed by Wayne Herschel as having been encrypted into the monuments of many ancient civilizations as part of a decipherable code defining “who we really are and where we come from”.

As you will see exploring this website that the human genus has absolutely nothing to do with any Earth evolved hominid at all. We replaced the Neanderthal after this species once destined to inherit the Earth was lost in an Earth cataclysm 100,00 years ago but we arrived in two distinct waves (see masonic secret); the first wave appears to be small experimental colonies 100,000 years ago in rather harsh Earth environment conditions and one recent arrival on every continent 17,250 years ago just as the Earth was changing to one that was more comfortable. The end of the Ice age was sudden with a major cataclysm around 10,000 years ago which reduced humanity back to simple farmers hunters and gatherers.

Wayne believes it was our returning ancestors thousands of years later that taught the primitive ancients of our sacred past and the secret of pyramids. This unique human five sided geometry pattern is also found in the paintings of famous artists like Da Vinci and Poussin and in the talismans and depictions of secret societies.

For millennia, woman have been robbed of their status as being equal to man. For this reason the definition of the ultimate human blueprint code and the sacred geometry(seen below) will be portrayed with woman in front of man.

In the 500 year old Da Vinci rendition of the original 2000 year old lost Greek manuscript of the original human code by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, his depiction showed TWO pairs of arms and TWO pairs of legs. His masterpiece strongly suggests that two human beings were originally portrayed in the earliest source of the human code with one human in front of the other. It is therefore reasonable to assume that the original source of the human blueprint code would have portrayed creation of the human with divine proportion… but depicting also the sacred union of both woman and man.

Vitruvian-woman-man-L

We present in two parts Wayne’s findings on the human blueprint code. The source of the code appears to predate Vitruvius by many thousands of years.” Full article here: http://blog.world-mysteries.com/strange-artifacts/da-vincis-big-secret-part-1/

I thought this is the first actually beautiful male-female composite in esoteric art. Not dissimilar to my idea, which was to have the man looking ahead while holding a star/heartstone overhead (the star in vol iv of the Apples of Aeden, of course! The Diamond World. From which the Fifth Age (in the epic) takes its name.

I had to go to youtube and listen to this, Starman by Bowie:

I will investigate the ideas from Wayne Herschel, and try drawing this concept for a sculpture, or at least a medallion…
