Seeker, the difference perhaps between you and me is this. I don’t know what that glyph is meant to represent from Sauniere. But I don’t argue about what the crista looked like if I haven’t seen it. I think some of the IBJ team HAVE seen it, so if they have, and they think Merovingian coins or this Sauniere glyph represents the *crista* then they must have their reasons for saying so. Right? And as I don’t assume that they are lying or anything like that, I will just wait for the next books and what not.
Has anybody seen
it? I don't think anybody's claiming to have seen it. Everything I've seen written about it describes it as what I would call a hypothetical construct
, with a hypothetical provenance
. BTW, such things can and do exist, but I don't think Isaac is claiming to have seen it. If he has, BTW, I'm willing to rethink my opinion about it. Nothing he's said so far about it leads me to believe he, or anyone else, has actually seen it.
I don't think they're lying. I think their theory doesn't seem fully sound yet. Or, as I've said all along, hasn't been explained very well. Of course, there appear to be constraints. Apparently explaining it better might lead to people finding it, and apparently unlike everybody else dealing with the RlC subject, they appear to be a positing an object they want NOT to be found, not TO BE found.
Seeker, I take note of EVERYTHING Cherisey wrote. And again its about points of view … I don’t think the PoS is fake ….
I don't either ... but then I also don't think it's what most other people think it is, and it definitely wasn't what it first claimed itself to be.
My current paradigm is it is/was/or is in some way connected to, Lamy's Angelic Society. (I'm reading his book right now alongside Patrice's.)
And who said Rosa Crux = Rosicrusicans????
Just a guess, given that elsewhere they refer to themselves as Rose Croix Veritas?
How do you know that all this RLC stuff wasn’t seriously important to Cherisey?
Who's saying he didn't think it was important?
Surrealism isn't taken very siriusly by people, but I believe they saw their project as very sirius.
The Surrealists proclaimed a revolution that would free the mind. I think that's pretty important.
As an aside, I’m sure the Ioneso name pops up in the Circuit novel …..i’ll have to check that out.
Yes, it does, Sandy.
And don't misunderstand my point: the point of the Theatre of the Absurd wasn't necessarily to say life had no meaning or purpose; just the opposite, but that we had to create it ourselves
