    … like birth, a continual continuation of life, like a snake eating its tail, an ouroboros, like a belt, like a record and turn table, like an rca cable … The Garden of life, of eden, where Eve had her fill of the fruit made available through the channel of the serpent, which was made to umm … crawl on its own belly, so to speak, and consume the dust of the ground, from where we came.

    The serpent in the garden ...

    Life, the ebb and flow of life, the swing from one side to the other, the sun and the moon, the entirety of life ... all it has ever been and all it will ever be, from this point to the next point rinse repeat without end, as in infinitely. The ouroboros ... the snake eating its tail, the puppy chasing its tail, the record on the turn table, the belt around the waist. The ouroboros ... That's what's on my mind, and an Exodus back to, orchestrated by an "understanding", as presented in Exodus 35:31 ... The Hebrew art of communication and the "strong" definitions that apply to "understanding". The art of showing ourselves approved as master workmen who need not to be ashamed.

    Exodus 35:31

    This may or may not seem relevant in your opinion, but I'm pretty sure it applies.

    Legends of the Fall



    Each lifetime past a sacrifice
    Fully known is the sting of pain
    Both eyes see the lion of Judah
    Both eyes know the eternal flame.

    His heart fuels her kindled fire.
    Her flames fuel a fire in his own.
    A furnace reveals the beauty inside
    and their beauty calls them home.

    Decreed in heaven he is the son.
    She the daughter wrought in hell.
    Together they ruled all of heaven,
    until choosing the tainted well.

    A single sip and she had fallen.
    He took another to let her know.
    He'd never let Her lose in hell,
    the amazing beauty of her soul.

    He craves her like an addiction.
    She him like flowers need rain.
    Hand in hand they chose to fall,
    thus the legend of the falls became.

    Alpha and Omega's amazing Grace,
    destined together to end all woe.
    Her amazing beauty lights His fire.
    His fire refines her amazing soul.

    Together they are the living Christ.
    Morning star their given name.
    Upon this earth they shine a light,
    as two souls but one the same.

    Rolling stones and empty graves,
    Emmaus and introductions to see.
    A journey of heart and life in love.
    These so fallen are you and me.

    Adam and Eve cast from Eden.
    Lucifer and Emanuel cast to hell.
    The tree of life the LOVE between
    all who embrace this epic tale.

    … and God said: Let us make them in our image, male and female let us make them ...



    Children of Life

    (A call to freedom)

    Falling faster and further
    From eden's graces
    The division of cultures
    And the war of races ...

    Intolerant minds
    With hateful tone
    Foster the damage
    Thrust on our home

    From mountainous peaks
    And deep vastness of seas
    A child's prayer was heard
    and heartfelt pleas.

    with birthing pangs
    and groanings deep
    "Set me free" she prays
    As she bittery weeps.

    Empty and barren
    her deep sorrowful cries
    Mother nature awakens
    with new hope inside.

    Greatness awaits her
    To sons of men she calls
    Hear my voice oh men
    Rise from your fall.


    But her hope deferred,
    Wiith sickness of heart
    Longing for freedom
    She does her part

    Her love and wisdom
    Guides a new birth
    In clouds we gather
    Upon this earth.

    But greed and corruption
    Kill and destroy
    They steal our freedoms
    And rob us of joy.

    But fulllfilled desire
    Has gifts to impart
    The tree of life revealed
    In the depths of heart

    Those who can hear
    And believe in his name
    Forbid not the least of these
    From becoming the same.

    From excellence of character
    To lifting veils and peace
    A white horse named spirit
    And the wedding feast.

    I would suggest as indicative of our capacity to seek to subvert the Real, the Good and the True for our own ends? I mean, that's what the story says ...

    The serpent of Hebrew speculation isn't the oroboros of Egyptian speculation.

    The ouroboros in Egyptian funerary depictions has been ascribed to the god Mehen, who protects Ra in his journey through the underworld (later developed and refined in Greek magic, gnosticism, alchemy, etc.)

    Yep. The disorder that surrounds the orderly world and that world's periodic renewal.

    I don't know … A couple youngins who decided to try something new … They were ashamed I guess of the nakedness and how it made them feel, and like acorns and tree's - the tree and leaves, it became time for them to well … "leave home". From Eden they went to work and grow, multiply and sow, and so … without Eden, the Serpent, and the tree …. I would venture to guess that there would be no you and me.

    The ouroboros … The perpetual circle of life. That's what it represents , and of course some utilize phallic symbols like fruit and tree's, flowers and bee's, but then … that's life and likewise the perpetual circle of life.

    To be honest, I don't want to hear or watch my kid and another's daughter umm … engaged in the act or practice of sex, so I guess that may have had something to do with why they had to leave the homestead. "It's time" "I'll send them away to begin a life of their own, so they too can be fruitful and multiply".
