IT (Plan 9 Continues.)

Filed under: General — m759 @ 2:46 AM

From the Field of Manifestation link above —

"The number 9, that is to say, relates traditionally
to the Great Goddess of Many Names (Devi, 
Inanna, Ishtar, Astarte, Artemis, Venus, etc.)
as matrix of the cosmic process, whether in the
macrocosm or in a microcosmic field of manifestation."

— Joseph Campbell,

Field of Manifestation

Filed under: General,Geometry — m759 @ 12:00 PM

This post was suggested by a book title in
the previous post: "Pieces of the Action."

A group action  is a mathematical concept.

Related meditation:

"The number 9, that is to say, relates traditionally
to the Great Goddess of Many Names (Devi, 
Inanna, Ishtar, Astarte, Artemis, Venus, etc.)
as matrix of the cosmic process, whether in the

The Source

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — m759 @ 9:00 PM

"In ancient Greece, 9 was the number of
the Muses, patron goddesses of the arts.
They were the daughters of Mnemosyne ('memory'),
the source of imagination, which in turn is
the carrier of archetypal, elementary ideas to
artistic realization in the field of space-time."

— Joseph Campbell in The Inner Reaches of Outer Space ,
      first published in 1986

From Robert A. Heinlein’s Glory Road  (1963):

Her face turned thoughtful. “Would you like to call me ‘Ettarre’?”

“Is that one of your names?”

“It is much like one of them, allowing for different spelling and accent.  Or it could be ‘Esther’ just as closely.  Or ‘Aster.’  Or even ‘Estrellita.’ “

” ‘Aster,’ ” I repeated. “Star. Lucky Star!”
