“female monster with a petrifying look,” late 14c., in Greek legend, any of the three hideous sisters, with writhing serpents for hair, whose look turned beholders to stone, from Greek Gorgones (plural; singular Gorgō) “the grim ones,” from gorgos, of a look or gaze, “grim, fierce, terrible,” later also “vigorous, lively,” a word of unknown origin. Beekes’ sources reject the proposed connections to Old Irish garg “raw, wild,” Old Church Slavonic groza “shiver,” Armenian karcr “hard.”
Transferred sense of “terrifyingly ugly person” is from 1520s. Their names were Medusa, Euryale, and Stheino, but when only one is mentioned, Medusa usually is meant. Slain by Perseus, her head was fixed on the aegis of Athena.
type of blue cheese, 1878, short for Gorgonzola cheese (1866), named for Gorgonzola, village near Milan where it was made.
In the neighbourhood is Gorgonzola, celebrated in the annals of the middle ages for the victory of Frederigo Barbarossa over the Milanese, in 1158; for the capture of the chevalric and poetic king Ensius, in 1243; for the advantage gained by the Torriani over the Visconti, in 1278, and which the latter revenged in 1281; but above all, famous for its strachino a cheese of European celebrity. [“Italy and its Comforts,” London, 1842]
mid-13c., dragoun, a fabulous animal common to the conceptions of many races and peoples, from Old French dragon and directly from Latin draconem (nominative draco) “huge serpent, dragon,” from Greek drakon (genitive drakontos) “serpent, giant seafish,” apparently from drak-, strong aorist stem of derkesthai “to see clearly,” from PIE *derk- “to see” (source also of Sanskrit darsata- “visible;” Old Irish adcondarc “I have seen;” Gothic gatarhjan “characterize;” Old English torht, Old High German zoraht “und light, clear;” Albanian dritë “light”).
Perhaps the literal sense is “the one with the (deadly) glance.” The young are dragonets (c. 1300). Fem. form dragoness is attested from 1630s. Obsolete drake (n.2) “dragon” is an older borrowing of the same word, and a later form in another sense is dragoon. Used in the Bible generally for creatures of great size and fierceness; it translates Hebrew tannin “a great sea-monster,” and tan, a desert mammal now believed to be the jackal.

“Welsh warlord” (mainly known now via Arthurian romances as the title of Uther Pendragon), late 15c., title of a chief leader in war of ancient Britain or Wales, who were invested with dictatorial powers in times of great danger, from pen “head” (see pen-) + dragon, which figured on the standard of a cohort.
name of the vampire king in Bram Stoker’s novel (1897). It was a surname of Prince Vlad II of Wallachia (d. 1476), and means in Romanian “son of Dracul,” literally “the dragon” (see dragon), from the name and emblem taken by Vlad’s father, also named Vlad, c. 1431 when he joined the Order of the Dragon, founded 1418 by Sigismund the Glorious of Hungary to defend the Christian religion from the Turks and crush heretics and schismatics.
Himalayan land between Tibet and India, from Sanskrit bhota “Tibet” + anta “end.” The local name is said to be Druk Yul “Land (roar?) of the Dragon.” Related: Bhutanese.
branch of chemistry which deals with wine-making and brewing, 1868, from Greek zymo-, combining form of zymē “a leaven” (from PIE root *yeue-; see juice) + -ourgia “a working,” from ergon “work” (from PIE root *werg- “to do”).
The last word in many standard English dictionaries (and this one); but Century Dictionary ends with Zyxomma (“A genus of Indian dragon-flies”) and in the OED [2nd ed.] the last word is zyxt, an obsolete Kentish form of the second person singular of see (v.).
At the dictionary’s letter A Mr. Brandt is young and gay But when at last he reaches zed He’s in his wheelchair, nearly dead [Einar Haugen]
name given to gnat-like insects the females of which bite animals and draw blood through a piercing and sucking proboscis, 1580s, from Spanish mosquito “little gnat,” diminutive of mosca “fly,” from Latin musca “fly,” from PIE root *mu- “gnat, fly” (compare Sanskrit maksa-, Greek myia, Old English mycg, Modern English midge, Old Church Slavonic mucha), perhaps imitative of the sound of humming insects. Related: Mosquital. Mosquito-hawk as a name for a kind of dragon-fly which preys on mosquitoes is from 1737. Mosquito-net “gauze or other fabric used as a screen against mosquitoes” is from 1745.

As some of you remember, the Aurora Consurgens contains the depiction of the Serpent of Eden as a Woman (The Taschen Alchemy Book)
“Aurora consurgens is a commentary on the Latin translation of Silvery Waters by Senior Zadith (Ibn Umayl). It also refers to the Song of Songs, especially in its last (7th) parable, which draws closely on it, in main parts paraphrasing it.”
About his life, since he lived in seclusion, very little is known. Ibn Umayl may have been born in Spain of Arabic parents for a Vatican Library catalogue lists one manuscript with the nisbaAndalusian but his writings suggest he mostly lived and worked in Egypt. He also visited North Africa and Iraq. Ibn Umayl has been considered a Gnostic Hermetist who seems to have led an introverted life style, which he recommended to others in his writings.
Ibn Umail’s Book of the Explanation of Symbols (Ḥall ar-Rumūz) can be regarded as a cultural link “within the mystical branch of alchemy, between the Gnostic Hermetic Greek alchemy and that of the mystical Latin alchemy in Europe”, enabling a “better understanding of the religious dimension of symbolic Arabic alchemy”Maybe we should start from here… after looking at the pretty pictures, of course

From Page 68: This is Gold
This points to the completion of a cosmic totality in which all basic
qualities are united by the soul and the tincture. The result our text calls a ‘golden flower’. This is an important name because it might point to Chinese influence. In Taoist alchemy the goal of the inner process is most frequently described as a golden flower. This image reappears in Buddhism, but the idea in itself also existed before this in antique Hellenistic alchemy.124
In the Book of Sophé we read: «The science and the wisdom of the best rule over both [the Hebrews and the Egyptians], they came from ancient tradition and their generation is without a king, autonomous, immaterial; it [wisdom]seeks nothing in the material, corruptible bodies, it operates without suffering their influence, being held together by prayer and divine grace. The symbol of alchemy is derived from the creation. [It is the alchemists] who save and purify the divine soul, which is fettered in the elements, and above all which separates the divine spirit, which is lost in the flesh. Just as there exists a sun, a flower of the fire, a heavenly sun, the right eye of the cosmos; in the same way the copper, when it becomes a flower through the purification, becomes an earthly soul, which is the king on earth like the sun is the king of heaven.»125
There is small trick I learned from my Tibetan instructor. One can get the Baraka imprint of a Book’s content (the understanding imbued as prana in all its readers applied at a level below language) by flipping through the pages and internalizing the prana of the page. It might be evident to some that an already read book settles in better than a new book. To provide a counter example, the content in Wave 1 might be more difficult to parse because of all the negative chitta imprinted on to it, not to mention the immaturity of my language then.
let’s look that up now:
It’s from Buch der Heiligen Dreifaltigkeit (15th Century):
I’m never going to finish reading any of these books; Time and ADD (+ The Octopus). That’s your Quest.
There’s another Quest, from Yesterday:
Circumcision is a patriarchal ritual designed to separate the male child from the Mother and can be found in many tribes/cultures; anthropologists have extensive documentation covering the circumcision rituals involved in the initiation of boys into manhood; it is interesting to note that the boys are initiated into the ritual right around the time the Oedipus complex (not discovered by Freud) starts. The men tell the boy that “Father Snake is coming for your Penis” before kidnapping the boy. Women who try to attend the ritual are killed. Very nasty business.
In recent times, Circumcision is performed as a way to mark Slaves; for instance, Europeans are not Circumcised, but their American (dispensable-workforce-not-culture-focused) brothers are circumcised by default. I spent some time with established masonic lodges learning about the process; it seems like the American upper-class opt out of the process. You probably heard of what Masons tell their wives when they ask about what they do during their lodge meetings: “if I tell you, I’ll have to Kill you”. Power.
There is a magical component involved in the ritual as your post specified. In Kurt Seligmann’s book on Magic, he talks about how a group of magicians tried to reduce Mohammad’s virility using a knotted device. The phallus is a potent symbol of power often associated with lightning and the Buddhist Vajra. If you know your mythology, Cronos castrated Ouranous, and was in turn castrated by Zeus.
Even if you opt out your child from the process, the Aprons-in-Charge who have archetypal biases (Burn Care, Venus==Lucifer, Saturnus == Satan) will fix the narrative of that child. I am not circumcised; it’s pretty obvious how the process affects sensitivity, and therefore intimacy. it is a very touchy topic; most men want to dodge the topic without putting thought into their (future) sons.
It is an evil process, no doubt. But do not associate the process with the ArchAngel Samael (who is Saturn or Satan), or a tribe of people being scapegoated for thousands of years.
