Hermetic Symbolism

Postby acdonah on Wed Oct 19, 2005 7:37 pm

Hi All,

Just an update from the symbol research area. i thought I would share some information I have found concerning the HD/CH symbol from the rock and other interesting sites you might want to check out.

Here is an interesting picture I found during my "Holy Grail" search on the interent. No pun intended...lol.

http://www.levity.com/alchemy/emblems/embl034.html

The interesting point of the picture is the 5 streams and its possible connection to the 5 drain tunnels to Smith Cove. Connection??
-----------------------------------
Another interesting site on Alchemy. This link in particular has a symbol similiar to the one on the rock from the South Cove(HD/CH).

Look for the Sal colcotharium, vitriolum vomitiuum

http://www.levity.com/alchemy/alchemical_symbols13.html

AND...The big connection could be this:)

http://www.crcsite.org/Tabulatext.htm

If you remember from an earlier post concerning some symbolism from Secret Symbols of the Rosicrucians of the 16th and 17th Centuries, which is the last link above, talks about the Imperial globe and the word "VITRIOL" by taking the first letters from each of the words circling the symbol.

So.......the Vitriolum vomitiuum and VITRIOL are the same? Well...yet another interesting site is here:
http://www.soul-guidance.com/houseofthe ... my%201.htm

Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Inveniens Occultum Lapidem Veram Medicinam. Or in one of the possible translations: "See in the interior of the purified earth, and you will find the secret stone, the true medicine".

Lastly...If my memory is correct....wasn't the piece of parchment that was brought up from the MP have the letters "Vi" on it?
-----------------------------------------
I have already made a link to this site, but I will again. It is a great site for alchemy symbols...possibly one of the best. There is a lot to look at and speculate about.

Enjoy,

Acondah:

I think that you have it. The association with Vitriol... has far too many points of similarity to be ignored. The symbol is an extremely close match with what you have found, and there appears to be confirmation elsewhere in our mystery.

The opportunity now will be for us to determine the significance of its' meaning and how it relates to either the originators or the engineering and deposit(s) themselves. This also may connect with other anomalies found on the island. Finally, can this clue help us answer the following:

Can it tell us where they came from?

Does it indicate what is buried there?

Can it explain why this island was chosen?

Is it a clue for when this was accomplished??


Great work...

acdonah,

All I have to say is, Wow. Great work! Each step of the way through your posting, I got more and more intrigued. I'll be taking a closer look soon!

A different route.

Postby Crusoe on Thu Oct 20, 2005 3:16 pm

Hi, acdonah,

You may be interested to know that a studious woman with parallel interests in the life of Edward de Vere may have arrived at the conclusion that this Earl of Oxford is buried at Oak Island by a completely different route than David Hanson. The study of this different route was begun by her late husband, and her own book is now at the publisher.

The different route is unquestionably Rosicrucianism, so that while I lack the time to delve into its symbolism myself, I already have a certain respect for this approach.

When her book is released, I will let you know if my surmise about her conclusion is correct.

Hi All,

Thanks for all the support. I'll still keep looking for interesting information on the topic. BTW....have you seen this?

http://www.criticalenquiry.org/oakisland/diggings.html

This is a portion of the letter:

Sometime after the arrival of these persons a Mr. McGinnis went to Oak Island to make a farm, when he discovered the spot in question from its being sunken, and from the position of three oak trees, which stood in a triangular form round the pit. The bark had letters cut into it with a knife on each tree facing the pit, and one of the trees being so directly over the pit, that two large branches formed a crotch, were exactly perpendicular to the centre, and had a hole bored through, and an oak tree-nail driven in, on which hung a tacle [sic] block.


If this is true, this also relates to my previous research. The #3 had a significance and the letters I bet were alchemy symbols or planet symbols. Of course...we will never know.

Hermetic symbolism(in art) always has three of something in it. For example: 3 roots at a bottom of a tree...3 swords, 3 arrows, etc. Why couldn't the 3 Oak trees also relate to this symbolism?

I would interested to talk with her if she is willing. Maybe you could ask her. I promise to still buy her book...:)
