”In this one place” several stories and myths rolled into one, or rather, all these cultures

are part of this history; all of them our "history," our "galaxy". But in order to explain this, I need to show you something...

The idea is to see, in this image of birds, that within each one, there are more and more forms

The following are some examples

See how “there are things among things”

… and how many "myths" are related when one doesn’t read but “see”

… in this one two (indeed, three) "enemies” merge to form “one”

… and in this one, there are animals among animals … and so, this way, with the "real and unreal" world, I went on uniting it all...

This whole “history” is "metaphorical". In this part of the history, the fetus in the womb is just like the fetus “inside” the galaxy... (back to the "beginning")

In this picture I chose Dante. They’re all the same, but I chose Dante

The “being” is born there, where everything is "fire”, the womb, the core… And there he lives many years… …many “lives”.

Finally he notices that there’re some cracks of water in the walls, but by then, a lot of time has passed by... He ventures into the unknown and gets to the bottom of the sea, where everything is very cold and very lonely. Let’s just say that he passes from a hot hell to a cold one... And there he lives so many other lives, many years.   Occasionally a jellyfish passes by, and because it’s so deep, the jellyfish glows, and passes and goes away. After a while, the being realizes that the place is not going to change, it’s he who has to move from place, and so the jellyfish is presented as a "clue": "Where does it come from? Where is it going?”, He wonders after a long time, and so, one day he decides to follow it...   He arrives to a part of the sea that’s more populated. There are many animals now, lots of variety, but still, he’s not "happy": He doesn’t understand anything, he was able to leave that other place, but still this current one doesn’t seem better, he doesn’t like it since nobody is like him. At this stage, as in all, this being doesn’t remember that some time ago he stood in a hot hell, and furthermore, he hates the hot hell, and, of course, he’s able to see it; he hates it because he has just came out of there, but he can’t quite remember... and once he gets to the not-so-deep-sea, he will hate the cold hell too, and he’ll be able to see the beings that used to be his “community"; he will detest them because they will remind him of what he used to be (what deep down he still believes he is), but this is not something he’s fully aware of, although some part of him "senses" it.   In this part, in the not-so-deep-sea, he sees a turtle.

For a while he sets his eyes on “him” (the turtle), just as he did once with a jellyfish... and just as that time, eventually, he decides to “follow” it, so he rides him. He wants to see where the turtle goes, because he doesn’t have the faintest idea of what his path is... But the turtle doesn’t move. The turtle is "angry", just like it seems in this real-life photo; and for a long, long time, for many lives, the being won’t advance because the turtle won’t move. Until one day, when another turtle appears.

This is another real-life image, in which, literally, you can see "the difference" between these turtles, you can truly appreciate the "smile of this turtle" (there are very slow sea turtles, as well as very fast ones).   So the being realizes that he’s riding a slow turtle, and tries to figure out why to try and fix the turtle, instead of simply changing from one to the other…

It turns out that each leg of the turtle is an independent being, each one looking at a different side. The head of the turtle knows where to go, but his legs, with "heads and eyes of their own", ignore it; and when the engine and the head aren’t going towards the same direction, the turtle can’t advance. Here we see a simple comparison between us and society, at the same time, our rational and emotional side, and our body and mind: The mind may be a super psychic, but cannot move without the body, such as X-Xavier of X-Men, who is super powerful, but is anyway in a wheelchair.   After another thousand years, many more lives, if necessary, the being stops pretending to change the turtle and just mounts the other... Then this turtle takes him to an island.

The being, used to seeing nothing but ocean for so many time, keeps on looking at it, like a castaway who misses a house he can no longer remember. This being can’t remember the hot and cold hell anymore, and without knowing why, he faces the sea.   Everything on the island, even "the mountain" of the island, he sees upside down, reflected in the water, so he begins to understand "the world upside down", and the struggle of opposites becomes notable, between those "looking at the reflection" and those who believe are seeing "the right view.” Basically those who "believe are seeing the right view" don’t want “to climb the mountain alone,” and so, they can engage in this confrontation of opposites for another countless lives.   There are many people in this part of the history.   ...   Once again I remind you of the "Guide":

Here’s the upside down mountain, and as such, the being climbs it, but for a while, he will climb "the upside down mountain."   You can appreciate all scales until "limbo." Once there, the being will realize that he was looking at a reflection in the water, and will turn to see it “right”.

There are many similes of this mountain, a "wedding cake" is one for instance, as "male and female" are separated until meeting at the top. According to Dante, on top is the cross, Adam and Eve; according to the Hindus, the enlightened one.

The being that has left the "two sides", dives into the "ocean of milk" (galaxy means "milk") and transcends all this. This is the same story of Dante, and the same in many others: The being that arrives to the limbo is very intelligent, can see the hot and cold hell, the water, the upside down mountain... Can even see the "Turtle" etc., but he’s locked in a respective "cycle" or "transition state", called by Dante "The lobby", a very placid place, which is okay, but where "something" is missing...   Lobby-people reject Mountain-people for the same reason that Cold-hell’s detested Hot-hell’s, they have just lived it, but they can’t quite remember.   Lobby-people are all "rational" and "moral", they recognize right from wrong, but can’t understand that good and evil are "the same" and can’t get that they’re both "female and male"... This is what more makes them remain in limbo...   When they finally start going out is because they access the other “tiny” mountain, the one of the 7 deadly sins...

Here we see the struggle of opposites again, a little more "civilized" but also as "long and arduous": The Puritan who rejects the libertine; the worker who rejects the lazy, etc., These two opposites fighting to see who’s right... and once more, they can remain here a lot of time, many lives, until they can no longer remember their “past” lives”, nor the water nor any of the other “places.”   For example: The lazy has worked hard to be where he is; he managed to leave "hell" but is still judged as a "villain”; and equally, he judges his opposite just as hard.   The last of the scales of purgatory, or the mountain of the 7 deadly sins, is lust: Here, more or less, you can find a person who doesn’t steal, doesn’t kill, loves his family, but is immersed in the loop of sex, that’s just like any other loop: He will repeat it until complete comprehension. Therefore, in this part of the history, it’s clear that: One can’t speak about "god" to someone from hell, he can’t "see it". It’s a ladder, and one shouldn’t only focus on everything they’re lacking to “get where we are”, but rather look at everything they’ve already done; and we also should realize that there’s a long way ahead of us as well… Then every step of the road makes sense; nothing is bad or good anymore.   To "get out" of purgatory, the person must accept himself as he is: If fat, accept himself as fat; if greedy, accept himself as greedy; and then he may reach "paradise". According to the Divine Comedy, a woman named Beatrice takes Dante to Paradise, because Virgil, even as illustrated as he is, cannot "enter".

Only here, and not before, female and male begin to unite, and “give” a “green” fruit: "The Earth".   When you look at a spoon, there’s a side that reflects it all upside down, and another that reflects it “right”. The side that feeds reflects upside down. When you stop trying to "fill yourself up", you can see it “right”.   Around here it seems that the "human world" begins to make sense, you can SEE the evolution of a single being: A cell that “later” was a plant, that later was an amphibious, later an animal, that later was a human... but that kept on forgetting every "past life" in every step of the way. You may even say that every-single-being is your "reincarnation"... But you don’t run into the 7 billion people on this planet, you run into a few, your nearest reincarnations (your family, your friends, "the-hardlyknown-ones"), it's as if you were or will be, literally, each one of them. What “they” live is okay... you wouldn’t be as you are without them. Then suddenly their "mistakes" don’t exasperate you anymore; suddenly you realize that if a man kills a cow, he, himself, is that cow, literally... even when unable to remember.   Round this moment every quantum theory comes across, even the string theory. The notion of time "disappears". You contemplate the possibility of multiple possibilities occurring in unison, and the notion of time as an illusion: You could die in 10 years to be a mug someone gifted you when you were 12... Then you can die and be a stone, or be your mom, or your pet; you can die and "rebirth" in the past or in the future, and you can see all your ancestors everywhere... and so not only see "what they should be learning" but realize that if you know something, is because they understood it or they will; that in fact what’s so "innate" in you, is due to the hard work of every other being. Also contemplate that all "this" may be a mere figment of your imagination, and also that any "illusion" may be valid.   So, back to the history: You can be constantly finding yourself with yourself while being "other versions"… Going out and living while "seeing this" is overwhelming. So you can understand that this "you" is "temporary" and you will be able to detach from many things...   … Up there in the mountain, the history of the Phoenix and the Dragon swings by...

To this top you ascend alone, and the phoenix "wins" the dragon over; although I rather see it as a strange metamorphosis, since the dragon is "several animals in one". First he can both, "swim" and "walk the earth", but then, taking the same path narrated so far, "the animal" is captured by a strange bird (actually he allows this capture to take place because he wants to know what it's like to fly)...   As an example, the eagle has the strange habit of hunting turtles, lifting and dropping them off from extreme heights... And yes, the turtle dies... but then "rebirths"... he goes on repeating this same story again and again until “this part”, countless years, countless lives... and again and again he sees "the bird that already flies" and allows his capture to take place… Eventually the "animal" doesn’t do this anymore... He understands that the bird is unique, that each bird is, that each way is the same but somehow different, and that we must "fly solo".   But he doesn't know how to fly, so he can only imagine it and wait for it, and round this stage he won’t be able to see a single bird in the sky, “nothing” to imitate. He must find his own way. I selected a "sample path" to continue the history, but the truth is that the possibilities are endless. In the one I have chosen, this animal impartially faces his "desire" to know the unknown and his fear of retrogression. He decides to confront his fear, so "down he goes" (as Dante), he’s no longer looking down from above, but he’s down to all those worlds he’d already lived. He lives them, he travels them, and then he leaves them, with the "ease of one who has already lived them". As he travels throughout all his "personal stories" in a single life, he achieves a sense of cohesion, and his totality gradually remembers how to “do” a "metamorphosis”...   But it’s not as "simple" as going from a cell to a plant, to an animal, to a bird; the "process" is repeated over and over again, and there’s not a single identical story: You can live a "great cycle" and end up as one of these little birds that seem to “swim in the sky" rather that flying; but then he dies and restarts the process; he may be then a hummingbird, a crow or a pelican, or may be an eagle... may end up as a penguin or as a man who invents an airplane; anyway way, remember that in this history "every being is a single one" in unison. At the "end" the being realizes what’s obvious: To undergo a metamorphosis, he needs to die, and so the "bird" defeats the "dragon"; and the phoenix, which is a dragon and bird and every other animal, is born.

I use this part of the history to talk about fecundation: Imagine that there’s only one "being" imagining it-all, and that we’re all "The ejaculation." Every spermatozoon as that one being, but also representing a different possibility. Only one arrives, but in reality they all do, although it seems that some die in the beginning, or during; it doesn’t matter; on a macro level, we’re all spermatozoons (possibilities) of a single "genetic" line; from flies to tadpoles, from plants to clouds. Then, the human body can be seen as "a" metaphor of something bigger; but at the same time, it remains as a simple spermatozoon, while breastfeeding-milk and ejaculated-milk, both, merge into the Heracles’ Milky Way myth (Zeus, Hera and Heracles).   For a while “the being” will seek "the egg", but if he arrives prematurely, when fecundation is not possible, he will die. It must be in that exact moment (the good thing is that "we-all have fertilized an egg"). Anyway the being will search and search for the egg. When the right time comes, everything will literally tremble, as this is how it goes in the human body: They're all there, "locked in the testicles" until ejaculation happens and everything shakes, and they are all lead somewhere whether they like it or not… Then, their innate sense of competition strive them to progress, and then the attraction to the egg takes them further and further. When crossing the "border" a moment of “calm” begins, and then the journey restarts. That calm moment can be read as the “stopping point”: They stop looking… They look for the egg no more; they feel "at home"; and there, they will be another long time, many more lives. One day, they will realize that it’s time to move, and only then they’ll see that there are a thousand ways to reach the egg, and that none is the “real one” because they all lead to the egg. (This is exactly the "same" history).   Anyway if the egg is not there, there’s no fecundation... and while the egg "arrives" there’re plenty of options. Before talking about one of these options, I want to mention the lesson of "the light and the shade": Light is not the object; the shadow is not the object; the ornaments are not the object. If you see a sculpture, the stone isn’t the sculpture, the stone is still a stone. You can carve it into a butterfly shape, but nonetheless a stone will be, no metamorphosis has taken place. The mind has filled you up with “illusions", but to understand this you had to travel all the way. Even your "change" was a big illusion; anyway you still are a spermatozoon.

While waiting for the "egg", while the "animal remembers how to defeat the dragon to become a phoenix", many go on traveling all the ways. Amid this "recapitulation" a lot can happen, one of these things is to get "so focused on teaching others" that thewhole-story-overall-perspective gets lost, and another is that is doesn't get lost but seems that way to other people.

"The Cave" is a good metaphor, and more if you join it to the Sperm Race: The image almost speaks for itself. These people holding those figures that project on the wall, may be "entangling those who see them" as well as they may be "showing them some things that are out there." Anyway, sometimes someone stops seeing these projections and reaches the "center" of the cave, where the bonfire is. Some look at it for so long that going out is forgotten; some take care of it, and others fake to be protecting it... also some people can simply leave the cave...

"People involved in this”, live in the “other island”, but of course can travel to the "island of the mountain."

* Note the other galaxies "there" in the sky.

They’re not "really" neither "good nor bad"; although, over time, "they seem to be"; they have to be. Of course this "scheme" is Dante’s, but it can also be found elsewhere.
The Egyptians, as a multiple message, can show the "greatness" of a civilization (with its “social” ranks) and its subsequent "ruin". Also the "3 islands" (one of them is "Turtle", that seems to appear and disappear) and their knowledge; and one of my favorites, the transition from "nothaving to having legs." However I want to emphasize the parallel between the "Christian martyrdom" and all other "martyrdoms": Dying to convey a message, even when suffering; even if for years you’re deemed as "the worst thing in the world "(eg. Hitler); even when supposedly “your own progress is compromised”. Theoretically, any person can be called a martyr.”

Some other people choose many other ways; some stay at "turtle"; some “wait without waiting”. Many others are still on the top of the mountain thinking how to fly; others have created things to fly; others have been sitting there at the top filled with ecstasy; others have made tiny islands just for themselves.   But when the egg is approaching and there’re “viable” espermazotozoons; for some, it’s time to "return to the island"; for others any place and any other destination is the same, since the indivisibility allows the "fecundation" for "everything."

Only one is “required”… Only “one” is

And as always... there is more than "that one thing"
