Welcome Rosetowners to the October Museletter. We’re back from a September hiatus with an upgraded website and a fitting new name for our monthly collection: “Museletter.” (Thanks to Jroll for the name.) We have another new name: the fourth section of submissions (formerly “for Eva”) is now Amrita. Amrita is divine nectar and immortality, I hope you enjoy it.

There are some exciting projects included in this edition. Dylan and I launch our new podcast Synergy Speaks on Rosetown’s new YouTube channel, Rosetown Productions. We have a collection of tribe flags presented in the Kachina section. We have a new contributor this month, Gary Diggins. His article, The Sounds of Paradise, I found most resonant to Rosetown vibes. It is featured as an introductory article, followed by four sections of tribe artwork: El Kachina Tree Amrita.

Enjoy yall,

The Sounds of Paradise

by Gary Diggins

Wired into our human hearts is a persistent longing that we intimately associate with the archetypal and aural. We long for experiences of being encompassed and nurtured by the sounds of the archetypal Mother. We crave intensities of volume or qualities of sound that promise to touch us to the depths. Almost everyone longs for music that is satisfying, inspiring, or uplifting. Could this yearning for the surround of Mother and the surround of beatific sound relate to our earliest memories of listening?  

Within the twentieth century, Dr. Sigmund Freud proposed in his theory of developmental personality that infancy is essentially Edenic in nature. Beginning with the loving, pre-literate womb experience and stretching into the first phase of newborn life, a child spends most of its time satisfying basic physical needs. He or she indulges in a range of physical and emotional experiences of gratification, many of which are facilitated through maternal sounds. After birth, parents and culture impose inhibitions on the infant’s forming psyche by establishing concepts, rules, and taboos. As these limits are largely imparted through words, the newborn child is eventually expelled from the proverbial and pre-verbal garden of Paradise. 

Carl Jung considered the notion of Paradise to be tied into the positive aspect of the archetypal Great Mother and the maternal source from which the infant receives nourishment and security. Mater, the Latin word for mother, became synonymous with the English word matter. In Jung’s thinking, Mother Nature, Mother Earth, and one’s parental mother are all psychologically cognate, standing for prenatal and infantile conditions of peace and plenty. In Jung’s view, the earliest phases of infancy, in which feelings were freely expressed between mother and child, represent a state of bonded unity from which all symbols of Paradise arose. 

According to Jung, the fall or demise of Paradise does not equate with birth but rather with the growth of the infant’s independent psyche. The loss of Paradise involves the inevitable disturbance of a primal relationship wherein the child begins to distinguish himself or herself as separate from a physical mother. Part of the way one does this is through attaining personal distinction through speech. The long journey of individuation begins with differentiation, establishing oneself as a unique person with an independent existence. This psychological process is well portrayed by the child’s shift away from predominantly listening to parental stimulus and into a state of increasingly finding her or his own voice.

The loss of a sonic Paradise can also be understood as a loss of selective listening. Dr. Alfred Tomatis suggests that, as adult listeners, we seek to return to the primary energy and aural purity of the sonic womb. According to Tomatis, the aural carries a special charge for the fetus. The unborn child receives neural energy due to higher frequencies conveyed through the mother’s voice. The Corti cells in the fetal ear are active and responsive to higher frequency sounds long before those cells are responsive to lower frequencies. Because of this design, the unborn child enjoys the maternal voice and is not overwhelmed by the lower-pitched sounds of heartbeat, respiration, and digestion.

Low frequency sounds tend to stimulate the physical body whereas sound in the region of 3,000 to 20,000 Hz produces a cortical arousal that leads to greater mental alertness. The unborn child receives an energetic return for investing a listening attention. After birth, the medium for aural messages changes from water to air. The newborn loses the means whereby Mater was heard and seeks that sonic spell of Paradise again. As the eustachian tube empties its liquid, the infant is expelled from the garden of elevated frequencies once heard during fetal life. Initially, the infant does not know how to tense its auditory musculature in this new medium of air. He or she has not learned how to recover a perception of higher frequencies. For the newborn, listening in air requires a different set of skills and efforts than those used during fetal life. Although seeking to recover the high-fidelity audition known in utero, the newborn listener must adapt to new auditory challenges. 

Infants have a capacity to hear in a range of sound extending from 16 cycles per second to 20,000 or more. Within that sonic panorama, though, only certain frequencies are useful for human communication. Although children possess a wide spectrum of hearing, they must learn to restrict the range of attention to what will prove to be most pragmatic in the act of verbal communicating. Narrowing the field, listening to important sound cues within the familial environment, has its own rewards but, at the same time, may be a bit of a shock to the listening system. Paradise as it once was known in fetal life is forever lost and so our listening continues to search throughout life for Paradise regained and the voice of mother. 

As we appreciate what a mystical event listening is for the fetus, perhaps it is easier for us to understand why music is so precious to human beings. Instrumental music, in particular, alludes to both the archetypal voice of the Mother and the actual sound of Paradise, once heard in utero. For the unborn child, the maternal sound is not a conveyor of information but a purveyor of sensation. In that sublime state of audition, each sonic message is like a sonic massage to the unborn child. Having been expelled from this sonic garden of Mother and having entered a world where audition predominantly serves functional needs, it is difficult for adults to imagine let alone recall the fetal state of sumptuous listening. 

Current studies indicate that the child translates the presence of soundwaves in a way that is remarkably differently before birth than after. A growing number of researchers are exploring the possibility that the fetus may actually be audile in nature. An audile person is one whose mental imagery is not visual but auditory in nature. That condition is almost impossible for most adults to picture since imagination, in the majority of people, relates to envisioning with the mind’s eye. To dream and fantasize in the language of sound, as opposed to colour, symbol, and scenario, seems like a lost ability. 

The word audio is derived from the Latin verb audire: to hear. Strictly speaking, audio translates as “I hear.” Phile, from the Greek, refers to loving.  In the purist definition then, an audiophile is someone who loves to hear or loves to listen. Unfortunately, since the term audiophile was coined several decades ago, its initial meaning has changed. Even the word audio, in more common usage, equates with the equipment used to reproduce sound rather than the ear that listens to it. I imagine the unborn child to be an authentic audiophile who shares a mystical relationship to sound and an archetypal connection to listening. 

In a variety of psychotherapeutic processes and shamanic practices, adults have tried to replicate the purity and profundity known by the fetal listener. Among older cultures, for instance, there might be trance rituals that refer the adult back to intrauterine life. Initiatory rites might reproduce the tight quarters of the womb and the stimulation of bodily sensations, as well as reenacting the birth process. Sound is central to these rituals. Some societies employ a combination of rigorous forms of dancing and drumming to produce flashbacks to one’s pre-birth days. Perhaps even the current popularity of hand drumming circles in our technological culture is, in part, an attempt to regain the entrancing power of the Mother’s pulse, voice, and noise, once heard in Paradise.

Black Sun

by Spectral Valkyrie (Alaura Blackstone) and Innocent Outlaw (Robby Jordan)

This song is a warning that brings with it the perennial myth of the Ragnarok, as told to Western music! This is what happens when a self-professed cyborg futurist and a freelance music artist from Dallas, Texas meet in cyberspace and share a mutual love for science fiction and mythology—we made a Futuristic Western.

The harvest is always coming around, the elders are always exerting their influence on future generations, and heroes are always reminded to remain vigilant. I played on the themes of war and sacrifice that permeate the Norse myths when I wrote the lyrics. In the Ragnarok myth, the ones who survive are Thor’s children; Thor dies so that they may live. In fact, every god mentioned in the song is said to have sacrificed something which benefits the humans who inherit the Earth.

What is more frightening than the prospect that war is as inevitable to the future of humanity as a great filter as the turning of the constellations, or the return of the solar eclipse? We continue the tradition of our ancestors in venerating sacrifice and martyrdom instead of shifting focus on more hopeful stories of peace and abundance because it serves a purpose. We are always lifting the veil of ignorance a little higher, but inevitably each generation falls back into amnesia. You can experience the Black Sun for yourself by staring at the sun, and then closing your eyelids. I see this as a great metaphor for the kind of willful blindness or blinding that our species engages in daily.

I hope that you will give the song a listen. The still artwork was generated with AI and the high-tech graphics were put together by Robert. Thank you to my artistic friend Lean for all the motivation and awesome feedback while working on the project.

Be the GOAT

by Sarkastik Worlock

Today’s topic is going to be somewhat different and relies heavily on my last article (To Fear the Shadow is to Fear the Light). If you’ve been following my work, you may have noticed a theme building. I have often been called “child-like,” and to me this is a tremendous complement. The mind of a child is a beautiful thing. I remember taking my two and a half year old to the zoo. What a perfect age. Old enough to appreciate what they are seeing, without the need to understand what they are seeing. A well cared for (raised in a stable environment without fear or being overly coddled) child that age will see every animal as their friend, and their minds do not jump to fearing what it could do. I remember taking him to see the lions. It was the highlight of his day. He couldn’t look away from them, and when the male got up from his nap and walked right up to us, my boy’s jaw dropped. Not out of fear, but out of awe. He just took it in as it was, without fear and without assumption. A couple hours later, after we had lunch, I was throwing away our trash and my boy walked over to a planter, kneeled down and started playing with something. I thought he was just petting a plant (as he was one to do. Haha!) but quickly realized that he had spotted a chipmunk and was making friends with it. He gently petted and talked to it while the little guy just stared at him with an expression I can only translate as, “This isn’t normal, but I like it.” I watched in amazement for a while until the boy was done, said bye, and turned to give me a hug.

This is a big part of what it is to be child-like. It’s a state of just being without trying, and seeing the world as behaving just the same way. As we grow, we make more and more assumptions. We begin to see the world as possibilities, rather than wonders. What’s worse is we begin to see ourselves from an adversarial perspective within the world we are in. We see the lion as a man eater, the snake as a trickster enemy, shadows as demons, chipmunks as disease carriers, and rather than greeting these things with a sense of awe and wonder, we greet them with anxiety, fear, and act primarily from a sense of self preservation. It’s not that we’re responding to what is happening, but we respond to our idea of what COULD happen. 

In the Kingdom of Heaven however, the lion lays down with the lamb, the prophet is fed by ravens and is safe in the lion’s den, the fire doesn’t burn, the baby will play on the asp’s hole (Haha! Not my words) and not be bit, and the rivers do not overwhelm. To me, this is what it looks like to know the Father. It’s just like my boy at the zoo. He knew I’d let nothing happen to him, so he was confident in what he did. This is the attitude that I believe one should embody if they wish to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” and I agree. He also says in Revelation that “the fearful…will have their part in the lake of fire.” 

So here I am again, railing against fear. I can’t help it though. In my opinion, this is the main thing that separates us from attaining the fullness of Christ. But let’s move onto the topic of the day. I would like to explain one of the most misunderstood symbols of the occult world, The Baphomet. 

Manly P. Hall wrote this in his book The Secret Teachings of all Ages:

“The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed.”

As I have said before, shadows are created by light (truth) being cast on the object meant to draw your attention, for the purpose of your instruction and revelation (gnosis). Yet far too often one sees the shadow and calls the source “evil” or “wicked” without having stopped and looked at that source long enough to see the lesson being given by The Almighty. Many symbols have been inverted and used for wickedness, and this even includes Christ and His cross. Does that mean we should throw it out? If your small child says or does something awful, should you kill it? Absolutely not! So too should we not reject the gifts of the Almighty, simply because someone used it wrong. So let’s take some time to look at this much maligned and demonized symbol, without attempting to cast down all that carries a shadow. 

The Baphomet. The Goat of Mendes. The Great Horned Goat. It is difficult to find an exact source culture or time of origin for this figure. Many trace it back to The Knights Templar, who it is theorized brought the symbol from Arabia after the crusades. Most of what is written about the Templar is difficult to believe, as they were one of the many “heretical” groups that were demonized with lies before, during, and after their destruction. In the five hundred years since their destruction, they’ve taken on a sort of legend as great heroes. Whatever the case, they were accused of worshiping this “idol”, and a great number of them were burned at the stake for it. I believe this is because the Baphomet represents the attainable perfection in this realm that those who pursue power and control can not tolerate. Please, allow me to explain.

When we examine the Baphomet, we see a hermaphrodite human with the head and legs of a goat. On its head are tremendous horns, a pentacle on its forehead, and above his head is a burning flame. On its back are great wings like an angel, and its phallus is the caduceus. Its left arm is pointing down and its right arm is pointing up, with the latin words “Solve” (dissolve) and “Coagula” (coagulate) on it’s forearms. It sits in tranquility on top of the world. 

Taken as a whole, the symbol of the Baphomet can come across as an imposing figure. However, I’ve yet to speak with anyone who could tell me why they thought it was “evil”. The very best effort I’ve encountered is a foolish correlation to Jesus’ parable of the sheep and the goats. This logic amounts to sheep = good, and goats = bad, therefore a statue of a man with the head of a goat can only equate to evil. This is a gross misunderstanding of both symbolism, as well as the parable of the sheep and the goats. A slightly better educated argument against the symbol is that it is used by satanists (not even true spiritual satanists, but Christian trolling atheists who formed a religion to attain religious rights) and Crowley. As I’ve pointed out previously, the shadow can not create. It can only take the good and invert it. To say a symbol in itself is evil, is like saying guns are evil. As we all can understand, it’s the use of a tool that makes its effects “bad” or “good” in our reckoning. Give one man a gun and he’ll feed his family. Give another man a gun and he’ll murder a family. The gun (or symbol) is only a point of power. The moral accountability lies on the one who holds it, and not on the object itself.

I know entire books could be written to defend nearly any symbol, so rather than making this article about what it is not, let’s talk about what it is. Because the Baphomet is a symbol made of up multiple symbols, let’s look at each symbol separately and then look again at them all together and see what we see.

Let’s begin with the obvious. The Baphomet has a muscular male form…with boobies. Full blown lady breasts. While some would say that this is representing transgenderism, I could not disagree more. Where transgenderism disregards a part of one’s self for that place to be filled with what gender is chosen, the Baphomet possesses qualities of both genders at once. This is the coming together of the male and female energies into a single form. This is seen in the natural lifetime of humans. The older a man gets, the more estrogen (female sex hormone) is in his system, and the older a woman gets, the more testosterone (male sex hormone) is in her system. In an esoteric sense, this is of incredible importance. From Christianity, to Greek mythology, the story of the division of man and woman is a story of separation. The creation of a duality. What was once one being, was separated into two. While the motivation is different in these stories, the effects are the same. For one seeking a higher path, self union is key. Jung spoke of men possessing the anima (the unconscious feminine), and women possessing animus (the unconscious masculine). Ironically given the social conversations of our age, the anima and animus are often seen as personal weakness. Many of us run from these shadow aspects of ourselves, as we do not know what they mean or what to do with them, but in the Baphomet we see full integration of both the masculine and the feminine. This integration of the male and female is spoken of in every religion I’ve studied in any detail, and is a key point in alchemical practice. There is so much to be said on this, there are MANY books written on this topic, and to explain it completely would take more than an article, but for those interested in digging into this further, read the Gospel of Thomas. 

Next, let’s consider the Baphomet’s Wings. Typically (remember that all symbolism bears multiple meanings) wings represent the divine and it is no different here. Like the male and female, we have divine and human. The merging of the divine and the human into a single being. Add to that the head of the goat, and we see animal and divine. It is undeniable that humans carry the potential for incredible animalistic behavior. Murder, rape, imprisoning, torture, are some of the worst of our animalistic attributes, but along with those come the best. Things like familial preservation, the preservation and protection of our herd (or pack if you’re feeling more predatory) or ingroup, the awareness of the material world such as seasons, and geography, and much more. So the animal does not represent “evil” or only the negative aspects of man, but also the best of what material man has to offer. The wings play off of this human animal, showing it also being divine. In a materialistic understanding, the divinity of humanity is displayed in creation, the arts, and sciences. From a spiritual perspective, the divinity of humanity speaks to us being the children of The Almighty. We were made in His image, and in His likeness. That means more than simply looking like the Almighty, but as I carry my father’s blood I also carry much of his same nature. Yet we were formed from clay. From the dust of the earth, with the breath of life in our lungs. Vessels of clay with the excellency of the power of God within. 

To see a separation between ourselves and the divine is to create another duality. Much like Adam, who had a portion of himself removed to create Eve, we eagerly cut away the divinity within us, remove it and place it externally to us, then worship with longing that which was before simply an aspect of complete selves. By being man and divine at once, man and animal at once, male and female at once, the Baphomet is revealing to us its theme. See it yet? Breaking duality by bringing together what was separated. Let’s continue.

I’ve already mentioned the head being a goat representing the animal aspect of self, and this is further shown in its hooved feet, but let’s think specifically about the goat. Goats quite often symbolize fertility, as in the first commandment ever given to humans in the Bible, “Be fruitful, and multiply.” If you do not have children or are on a path of celibacy, no worries! Fertility in the spirit can also mean that you reproduce that which is of you. This can be done in the minds and hearts of others who are drawn by the Almighty to you. Goats also symbolize agility, bravery, surefootedness, hardiness, and a knowledge of the land. All attributes one must possess if one wishes to travel their spiritual path. Again, some will only be able to see the goat as “evil”, as all they care to see is evil. They can only see the goat from the perspective of Jesus’ parable. As one who loves metaphor, I can certainly tell you that Jesus drew from examples people would understand. He used the sheep and the goats as his metaphor because people were familiar with that exact concept. While preaching to peasants, what is a better example than one they actually did on a regular basis? If Jesus were being as literal as many take him here (“Sheep go to heaven, and goats go to hell” as a particularly anti-wise person once told me), shouldn’t we also be troubled that the sheep and goats were talking in his parable? Haha! Maybe only talking goats go to hell? No. This is simply a metaphor. If Jesus were preaching to a very high minded, scientific crowd, he’d probably have said something like, “…and he will separate them as a chemist separates hydrogen from oxygen.”, and pretending that the goat is more than just that in this case is to be coy and obtuse. 

On the head of the goat, are two great horns, representing status, longevity, and wisdom. On its forehead is the pentacle (the upright five pointed star). Keep in mind that every symbol has multiple meanings, but there are two meanings here that I keep coming back to and I see no reason why it can not be both. The first is the five elemental forces in unity, with the forces being fire, water, earth, air, and aether. Each force is both of material and spirit, but aether is the clay from which reality is formed. Aether is the substance of creation. Creation is the union of order and chaos (and again, another broken duality) for a singular purpose. This symbol is placed on the forehead, representing a full understanding of each of the elements, as well as their connection to each other. 

The second notion is one I am still unfolding, but the pentacle has an affiliation with Venus. Venus, being the “Morning Star” signifies illumination. The light, amalgamous with truth and freedom. In Revelation 22, we see Jesus calling himself “the Bright Morning Star”, and as much as it may be difficult to stop being afraid of Venus, affiliations Lucifer, and the light, I contend it may be of incredible benefit to do so, as they all represent Christ. Remember, amusement parks are no fun when you’re afraid of all the good rides. You can either have the time of your life, or you can spend your time there trying to discredit each attraction and believe in your heart that the designers are just trying to kill you. You pick. Haha! I may write more on this one day, but the placement on the forehead in this interpretation represents the understanding and integration of the knowledge of Christ. The realization of Christ in one’s self. (and again, breaking the breaking of another duality between self, and Christ in us)

Above its head is the divine flame. This represents the spark of life, but primarily illumination. That is a trigger-word for many, and I find it ironic that the same people who will look at you funny for saying “illumination”, will do so in a brightly lit room. There is nothing evil about this flame. This is the same flame we see descending from heaven and landing above the heads of the saints in the book of Acts, and represents the same things. In that story, they began to speak in tongues. This is not the tongues we see in many churches today, but these were actual languages that travelers heard as being their tongue. Among other things, this denotes a gifting of divine knowledge. Light has a funny way about it. It can take what was hidden and unable to be seen, remove the darkness, and allow you to see what was previously hidden. Light is truth. It exposes what is. Think of a candle when you see this flame. Like a candle flame, one who is possessed by this divine light can not perceive darkness, as from the very second the light exists, darkness disappears around it. Everything in its sight is lit by it’s being. We should never fear the light or light symbolism. We are the light of the world, after all, and where would we be without a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path?

The Baphomet’s arms pointing one up, and one down, symbolize the saying, “As above, so below, and as below, so above.” I have already written extensively on the meaning of this (As above, so below) but again we see a breaking of a false duality. The idea that the above is separate from the below runs counter to The Lord’s Prayer (“…on earth as it is in heaven.”) Boy, it’s beginning to seem like the Baphomet is a symbol of perfected unity, rather than literal Satan or something. Haha! 

On its arms are written the words “Solve” (dissolve) and “Coagula” (coagulate). I have written extensively on this (Crossing the Abyss: Part 1 and Crossing the Abyss: Part 2), but I believe this to be the key to becoming what the Baphomet symbolizes. It is through the destruction and rebuilding of the self that the Almighty brings us to this perfection. If you have not read my writings on this, I recommend you do so for a fuller understanding.

In place of a phallus, the Baphomet has the caduceus. Animalistic pleasure has been traded in for the divine pleasure of unity, as one of the meanings of the caduceus is the two separate snakes, climbing up a central pillar. This is heavily associated with enlightenment in many cultures and practices, and can speak to sexual union (man and woman becoming one not only in flesh, but in spirit) also called Kundalini awakening. This is what I believe to be the higher purpose of sex, but the symbol to me also represents the joining of things that were separated. Making one from two. It is the reversal of the curse of the gods that broke things into two. Good and evil, man and woman, right and wrong, above and below, night and day, life and death, republicans and democrats (haha!). It is the realization that the two that previously appeared as separate are in actuality the same force. This understanding is what awakens one from a long and troubled sleep. 

It is for this understanding that Baphomet sits upon the world. The one who understands the true nature of the elemental forces, embraces their own destruction and rebuilding, is illuminated by the light of truth, embraces his animal side as well as his divinity, endures the hardship like a goat in winter, and accepts the male and female energies as equals within himself, that one will be troubled by nothing. He sees and understands. What can move him but the Almighty? What can trouble him? What can he not accomplish? I believe that this is what it is to be perfected. It is the perfect Christ spoke of when he commanded us to “Be perfect, just as your father in heaven is perfect.” 

Think of the father’s perfection. Within the Almighty is everything. They are all Him. All things are a reflection of the Almighty, and there is nothing within Him that is not of Him. The Almighty does not get cancer! There are no foreign entities within His being. Believing that the Almighty is somehow separate from pieces of Himself is just insane. But He is light AND dark. He is life AND death. Good AND evil. “A house divided against itself can not stand,” yet many are content to see the Almighty as just that. A god at war within itself. It’s no wonder they are afraid of every shadow. Their view of God is of a schizophrenic. I’d be horrified too! But in destroying our dualistic nature simply by not demanding God change, we see the truth. We see equilibrium, and are no longer frightened of the dark, for we know beyond knowing that the dark is just the backside of the Almighty, my father. 

If you’ve made it this far, way to go! As with all these topics, there’s SO much more than what I wrote here, but this is a great beginning. May you be blessed, and have a wonderful day!

The Quest Continues

by Merde Moth

These past 2 lunar cycles, I have been mostly continuing my quest to conquer local landmarks.

I claimed another tower, the Cairngorm mountain range/ ski resort, Loch Morlich and Donald Trump’s golf course. 

I met some amazing characters including eagle owls, polar bear and snow leopard cubs, red pandas, wolves and snow monkeys amongst others.

We have had a glorious summer here in Scotland. The blue skies and the purple hues of the mountains have been stunning. My apple tree has never been so bountiful- the apples are currently being enjoyed by a local farmer’s pigs.

The end of the summer was marked with a Full Harvest Moon fire with I AM Buzz.

Creatively, I have been experimenting with music/ video editing, green screen and puppets, resulting in this movie:
