Metamorphosis is a novella written by Franz Kafka and first published in 1915. One of Kafka's best-known works, Metamorphosis tells the story of salesman Gregor Samsa, who wakes one morning to find himself inexplicably transformed into a huge insect and subsequently struggles to adjust to this new condition. The novella has been widely discussed among literary critics, who have offered varied interpretations. In popular culture and adaptations of the novella, the insect is commonly depicted as a cockroach. Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis is a story about what happens after Gregor Samsa becomes an insect overnight. One of the main themes of the story is isolation. After this remarkable metamorphosis, Gregor begins to feel alienated from his family. This novella is not the kind of horror story you're thinking of – no monsters under the bed – but it is still a horror story. It is the story of a man who has become unrecognizable to himself and has become a burden to his family. The Metamorphosis was banned under both the Soviet and Nazi regimes, with the Soviet Union describing the story as 'decadent' and 'despairing'. There is even hope that Grete will marry, which turns the ending of the narrative, after Gregor's death, in the direction of comedy. In sum, it is correct to say that The Metamorphosis contains elements of tragedy, but these elements are mixed with comedy and the absurd. It's popularity has to do with its reflection on the human condition, and its deeply relatable cynicism. The main character is a dedicated man who, despite manifesting a great deal more of that virtue than those around him, seems to exist in a vacuum. Grete is a young woman on the cusp of adulthood. She initially shows great concern for Gregor, but her compassion gives way to possessiveness and resentment as the effects of Gregor's transformation on her life slowly take their toll. “'The Metamorphosis' — purported to be the fictional account of a man who turns into a large cockroach — is actually non-fiction,” according to a statement released by Mr. Kafka's editor, who spoke only on the condition that he be identified as E. “The story is true. #franzkafka #metamorphosis #shortstory #englishliterature

This art by István Kolonics, is a classic example of alchemical and esoteric symbolism, combining elements of Kabbalah, Hermeticism and other mystical traditions. symbolism: 1. **Androgynous figure**: The central figure has both masculine and feminine characteristics, symbolizing the union of opposites and the concept of the primordial "One" in alchemy and Kabbalah. This represents harmony and balance between masculine and feminine energies. 2. **Kether (Top of the Head)**: The crown on the top of the head symbolizes Kether, the first sephirah of the Tree of Life, representing the divine will and the spiritual crown. 3. **Chokmah (Right Side)**: The phallic figure on the right side (from the observer's perspective) symbolizes Chokmah, the second sephirah, associated with wisdom and creative masculine energy (ABA-Father) 4. **Binah (Left Side)**: The figure of a female organ on the left side symbolizes Binah, the third sephirah, associated with understanding and receptive feminine energy. (AIMA-mother) 5. **Tiphareth (Center of Chest)**: The lion in the center of the chest represents Tiphareth, the central sephirah of the Tree of Life, which balances higher and lower energies and is associated with beauty and harmony. 6. **Geburah (Left side of the body)**: The ax and the martial symbol on the left represent Geburah, the sephirah of justice, power and severity. 7. **Chesed (Right side of the body)**: The lightning bolt and scepter symbol on the right side represent Chesed, the sephirah of mercy, love and benevolence. 8. **Netzah and Hod (Legs)**: The symbols on the legs represent Netzah (right side) and Hod (left side), which are the sephiroth of eternity and glory respectively. The anubis/Hermes corresponds to the planet Mercury and the flower in a shell to Venus/Aphrodite. 9. **Yesod (Genitals)**: The symbol on the genitals represents Yesod, the sephirah that acts as a bridge between higher energies and the physical world. 10. **Malkuth (Base)**: The base of the figure, symbolized by the female genitals, represents Malkuth, the sephirah that receives all higher energies and manifests them in the material world. 11. **Animals and other symbols**: Animals and other additional symbols reinforce the themes of duality, transformation and balance. This image probably has its origins in the esoteric tradition of the 18th and 19th centuries, when Western occultism, influenced by Kabbalah, alchemy and hermeticism, flourished in Europe and America. The Hebrew text on the image reads: "כתר", "בינה", "חכמה", "גבולה", "חסר", "נצח", "הור", "מלך", "כות", "חיים", "אור ". These Hebrew terms have the following meanings: כתר (Keter): Crown בינה (Binah): Intelligence חכמה (Chokhmah): Wisdom גבולה (Geburah): Power חסד (Chesed): Mercy נצח (Netzach): Victory הוד (Hod): Splendor מלך (Melek): King כות (Koth): Tunic These last two form the word “Malkuth” which would be the last sephirah “Kingdom”. -Text: facebook page: Anatomía Oculta - Occult Anatomy: Descifrando el diagrama

Magura, East Slavic, Balkan and Ukrainian winged warrior goddess, Maiden of the Clouds, slavic version of a Valkyrie, resembling Greek/Roman Nike/Victoria.

Her name can mean "Mother of Stones" (or "Marker Stones") perhaps alluding to a goddess depicted on ancient grave stelae or boundary stelae. Her name also means "Mah's Dwelling" or "She is a Dwelling Place," synonymous with Shekhinah. Other meanings include "Mah is Awesome," or "Mah Sojourns" or Abides (with us).

She is daughter of the god Perun and goddess Mokosh or Dodola, sister of Morana goddess of winter. When the bravest warriors fell in battle, they would receive a kiss from Magura, the brush of a wing releasing the warrior's soul. She provides the spirit a drink from a golden bowl before bearing that soul to paradise.

The name Magura occurs as a toponym for thousands of places around the world, which connect to form a beeline from the Balkan peninsula and Romania to the mideast, Asia, South and Southeast Asia, then island-hops through Oceana. The supposition is a goddess named Mah or Magura (or with Mah's priesthood or Mah's Gurus) introduced along this beeline during Neolithic Indo-European migrations.

This chart shows the array of goddess images in the Magura Cave near the Danube in Bulgaria, on the border with Romania. She always has her arms upraised, as is familiar from the later but very ancient Phoenician Tanit; as is still the case with the Slavic Earthmother Mokosh. She wears a girdle or belt, a symbol of the Mother Goddess which reminds us of Hercules' theft of the girdle of the queen of the Amazons. The prehistoric people who founded the Cave of Magura as a temple to the Mother Goddess 43,000 years ago were manifestly stargazers. Magura's girdle is the same as our own "belt of Orion" though instead of being a fertility daemon to Artemis, the constellation was a goddess herself (as she was in Arabia). In the context of these images throughout the cave, we know Magura was (like Artemis) a Mistress of Animals, goddess of the Hunt, the Sky, Plenitude, and of Sexuality and reproduction of humans (the cave includes priapic male figures aroused by Magura). Some scholars believe she was a triune goddess. Her name seems certainly to have indeed been Megura, a name that radiated outward in all directions from the Danube to the whole world, where Megura accounts from thousands of toponyms from Iberia to India to Mongolia and Japan, and one location in Australia. Most of the languages throughout her range borrowed the name and word Magura and have no root word of their own to explain it. The root of her name does occur in Sumerian (the Danube provides a direct link between what became Slavic nations to the Mesopotamian basin). Although the cave is open to tourists, it has no lighting, and the art cannot be viewed. There has not been a guide for it for years; the old toilets are locked; and when a young guard suddenly appears to say hello and make sure you're not up to no good, it won't be someone who speaks English. So sad to say, it is not worth the trip -- unless you can arrange in advance with a knowledgeable guide from a university. === The goddess of this cave lingers today as the Slavic Warrior-goddess Magura: [https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10221179031966226](https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10221179031966226)

Four Philosophical Principles in the Great Work

Recently I was asked the question: “are philosophical principles and hermetic principles related and can you recommend some reading on the principles? I have alot of books and info on the principles seems to be lacking.”

I think Hermetic Principles are part of Alchemy Philosophy. The Theory of the Three Philosophical Principles goes back a long way. Though I don’t know who first started calling them the Three Philosophical Principles or Tria Prima. A really good example to show the reality of the Principles in action is your question. I read it while thinking about how I wanted to answer it including some words by the adepts. A post came my way that contained a perfect excerpt from a treatise written around 1415 by Arnoldus de Nova Villa where he quotes Morienus from a much earlier time, and others:

“...and therefore its said in the beginning, the Word was a Spirit, and that word the Spirit was with God, that is with himselfe, and God was that word, he himself was the Spirit, and the word the Spirit was made flesh, the Spirit has assumed the true body, and so that above became true as that below. ...

“...some Philosophers have said that our Stone is of a body, of a soul, and of a Spirit, and they have said true, and wee doe yield, and they give to the perfect body what he had not before, and it brings him into a better spirit; the Soul brings into the imperfect body a constant spirit. ...”

"Morienus: the Earth which remaines in the ground, thou must not at all despise nor villify, understand the earth of the body, and that same earth is the right end of the permanent and constant things, after that with a good water thou must annoint and errigate the Leaven, and the Leaven is called by the Philosophers a Soul;

“... they call also the prepared body a Leaven, for as a Leaven does make other bread sowre, so does this thing, and I tell thee freely ... of necessity must the Leaven bee Leavened in the body, for the Leaven is the Soule of the body, and therefore says Morienus: Unlesse you purify the unclean body, and create in him a new soule, you have perceived Lesse then nothing in this art; likewise says Arnuldus, the spirit changes into the body, and cleanses and eterniseth him, about this the Spirit does tye himself, and the clear permeations of the Soul which here is mentioned is a Leaven, and rejoyces with the body, because it has cleansed it selfe with him and now the nature is changed so that the grosser things stay behind there;

“says Aschanos in Turba Philosophorum, the Spirit is not joyned to the body unlesse before it bee totally purified from all uncleanesse, but in the conjunction, the greatest miracles are made evident, for there are seen all the colours that a man can think of; and when the colours beginn to bee lighter and lighter so that thou seest sometimes onely as it were a little spark and beginns to rejoyce therein from thy heart and Soul. ... That is when the supreme power or the Quintessence of the elements does discover it self in so many wayes and colours, and the last is done in a Moment;

“when this is done thou seest the sun and Moone shine lovely in the heaven of his owne water, and begins to rejoyce but then goe away lest thou loosest thy life for joy, and thus the imperfect body is coloured with his best colours because of the power of the heaven, and the heaven is the soul, and the Spirit is with the help of the soul joyned to the body, and are tyed one with the other, and the body is changed to the colour of the Leaven and becomes eternally good;

“out of the Words prescribed and said any understanding man may know that the philosophers in dark and hidden wordes have hidde the whole art, for they say our Stone is of 4 elements, and that's a great truth, for they have compar'd them with 4 elements whereof Wee have said enough, and one may know the elements by the coloures, he that knowes it, and is acquainted with it;” — A Chymicall treatise of the Ancient and highly illuminated Philosopher, Devine and Physitian, Arnoldus de Nova Villa, c. 1415

I have abridged and changed the sequence of some paragraphs to illuminate the relationship of the three Principles, the Spirit, the Soul, the Body, and the fourth Principle: the Word. The arrangement teaches us that in the beginning the Spirit was the Word and the Word was with God. This is pure Philosophy that guides the Great Work in Heaven and on Earth.

God is the Word and the Spirit. God, Word and Spirit create Body. The created Body has Soul whose Nature is compared to Leaven. The Leaven, Soul, evolves, rises through transformation as the Spirit ties himself to the permutations of the Soul which here is mentioned is a Leaven, and rejoices with the body. God, Word, is in the Spirit, Soul and Body.

The word God can bring many belief systems into play that may detract one from considering Word as the Principle coexistent with God which can give some insight to the Nature of God in Alchemical Philosophy. God is Word. And Word conveys meaning. Meaning is Intelligence unfolding like the Leaven, Bread: Spirit, Soul in Body rising according to the relationship of the Three Principles in the Body of the Word. Artfully created through manipulation of the Philosophical Elements.

As alchemist Arnoldus said, “out of the Words prescribed and said any understanding man may know that the philosophers in dark and hidden wordes have hidde the whole art.” The Word being coexistent with God can be tested with reason and logic giving results that are repeatable. Whereas God is numinous beyond reason and logic in the realm of Faith in Belief. That is the field of Religion. Alchemy is Philosophy validated through reproducible experimentation.

God is the Word. We communicate in Word. Through Word we transfer Information from one to another Word speaker. The Word Information is transferred through the generations of people. That is Knowledge retained in the World of human endeavor. All of this has Meaning to the Intelligent Word speakers. We all are Intelligent. Or you could say Intelligence is in all of us in space and time through Eternity beyond Space/Time.

Which brings us back to the beginning. The question attracts response. My response was to look for answers. Another Word speaker among us was inspired to make the post quoting Arnoldus. That person did not know about about the question nor my search for the right example for the answer.

The one thing common to all that made this happen is Intelligence. Through coincidence and synchronicity we who are intelligent, completed the circuit. Or the Leaven did rise and make the Bread. Or Intelligence inspired the formation of this particular demonstration of Knowledge. Or from the Religious angle, God did inspire the formation of this Knowledge.

In the Creation are Four Fundamental Philosophical Principles: Spirit, Soul, Body and Intelligence

450,000 years ago, the Anunnaki arrived on Earth in search of precious resources, bringing with them 600 workers known as the Igigi. These workers spread across ancient Africa, establishing infrastructures that allowed the Anunnaki to exploit the continent's rich mineral wealth. The Igigi, depicted with long beards, flowing hair, and wings, were a lower rank of deities, predating humanity and often likened to angels. As told in the Akkadian myth of Atrahasis, the Igigi were burdened with immense labor by the Anunnaki, highlighting their subordinate status. The Anunnaki's relentless quest for gold, vital for their survival, eventually led to the Igigi's rebellion. To ease their burden, humans were created to take over the laborious tasks.
