The Magik of N M

As a new Member of Somathread (thank you for the warm welcome ) , i would like to share with you a collection of PATTERNS  ( info collected here and there :) ), if you'll allow me :

The Greek authors relate that the priests of Egypt had three ways of expressing their thoughts. "The first was clear and simple; the second, symbolic and figurative; the third, sacred and hieroglyphic. At their wish, the same work assumed a literal, a figurative or a transcendent meaning. This was the genius of their language. Heraclitus expressed the differences perfectly in designating them as speaking, signifying and concealing."

Considering Moses' education, there is no doubt that he wrote GeNesis in Egyptian hieroglyphs with three meanings. 

Alchemically speaking : mercury, sulfur, and salt


  Mem is believed to derive from the Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol for water + Nun is believed to be derived from an Egyptian hieroglyph of a snake;   Nun was the embodiment of the primordial waters, existing in the chaos preceding creation ( (in Arabic, nūn means large fish or whale)


Truth:Mystery of Mem )

We can see the idea of life and death even more evidently in the Hebrew word for truth, eMet, which is made up of the first, middle and last letter of the Hebrew alphabet - Mem being the middle letter. In this word, Mem is the mediator between life and death, since the first two letters of the word spell em (mother - the beginning of life), and the last two letters spell met (death). Mem is the tie that figuratively mediates between the two and allows us to pass from life to death peacefully and vice versa. ( owL )

*one of the various spellings of the prophet of IsLam name is : MuheMet ( After 23 years of Prophet-hood Muhammad (p.b.u.h) passed away )

  • K eMet Ancient Egypt is commonly referred to as 'km.t' , believed to be a reference to the black Nile Delta earth, as opposed to Deshret, the red barren desert land. The name Egypt was used accidentally by the Greeks after mistaking the Second name of the City of Thebes, "Aigyptos" for the country.

    complete and great, in thy name of "Great Black,"

some words "built" around NM  :  the first that comes to mind is :  MooN ;)

  • In folk magic throughout the world dew is considered important in healing and medical cures, especially of the female reproductive system. Women wishing to become pregnant would lay nude on the backs beneath the moon until sunrise. Thus she was covered by and bathed in dew, considered a potent potion for fertility. In Italian Witchcraft dew is collected from sacred herbs, kept in small bottles and used as holy water for blessing and purification. ***Moon overhead makes rainfall lighter, scientists conclude

The food the soul eats on earth is that divine MaNNa that was rained down from heaven, but had to be scraped up off the earth, the perfect analogue of how mortals acquire their heavenly nutriment. The universal ancient tribal name for the divinity manifesting in the life of nature was MaNa, MaiNu, MaNitou.

Plato refers to divine obsession as a MaNia better than sober reason. An oMeN was a foresight of one's earthly fate. And the mystifying and baffling word ending prayers, aMeN .... . Memory in Latin is MeMiNi and the Greek Muse of Memory was MNemosyne

the word representing the divine light or power in things, NuMen ....  NuMbers... NuMeNous ... HuMaN ... 

  • phroNeMa is a transliteration of the Greek word φρόνημα, which has the meanings of "mind", "spirit", "thought", "purpose", "will", and can have either a positive meaning ("high spirit", "resolution", "pride") or a bad sense ("presumption", "arrogance").
  • In the New Testament, the word is used four times in the Saint Paul's Letter to the Romans: twice with "τῆς σαρκός" (of the flesh) and twice with "τοῦ πνεύματος" (of the spirit): "for the mind of the flesh [is] death, and the mind of the Spirit – life and peace; because the mind of the flesh [is] enmity to God ...and He who is searching the hearts hath known what [is] the MiN D of the Spirit" (Romans 8:6-7,27).

M and N, separate or conjoined, form the framework of hundreds of words relating to the condition of spirit-energy when immersed in matter  

The title MeLissaios – or Bee-man, has a feminine counterpart in Mediterranean cultures called MeLissa, of which Hilda Ransome informs us; “The title Melissa, the Bee, is a very ancient one; it constantly occurs in Greek Myths, meaning sometimes a priestess, sometimes a NyMph.”

and also a word often used here :  NaMaste : In Hinduism it means "I bow to the divine in you"

'aNaM' is the Gaelic word for Soul. Also means spirit, breath, life, psyche.

In Arabic the meaning of the name MaNar is: Light

“Essence” or the “Meaning”  ( Logos ) both being translations of Ma’Na

  • The concepts of AUM and UMA (A male, U female and M monistic union of the two principles) would have a Sumerian origin .

  • NURU or IMMARU - Light -
  • NANNA - Moon
  • NANSHE - Goddess of Fish

§ Tommy McCook Band & Herbie Mann - My Girl §

The Sufis want to share, but they have to share with those who can profit from the sharing and can therefore continue the process of sharing with others to come. This requires the Sufis using their energy in 'teaching how to learn', before any sharing can take place. Sharing the sheer sensation of importance or of being a human being or even a servant of humanity, can be done by anyone, and is the sort of sharing that people are always straining towards. But the minimum human duty is to serve others: it is no great attainment. Feeling important is a vice, not a virtue, however concealed as participation in something noble.

          My son, hearken to my wisdom [חכמה Chokmah]; incline your ear to my understanding [בונה Binah], to watch [your] thoughts, and your lips shall guard knowledge [דעת Daath]. - Proverbs 5

          • Binah to Chokmah – the Empress – illuminating intelligence – Dalet (the door)

          This is the highest horizontal path. This path represents knowledge in a spiritual sense, the thoughts and emotions of the universal self. The black sphere and the white sphere connect here. Knowledge gives us the definition and meaning of reality. The knowledge of Binah is based in the roots of thought, the pure symbols of abstraction. The knowledge of Chokmah is based in the roots of emotion, of satisfaction and love. On this path, these two types knowledge come together beautifully and imaginatively. Feelings of bliss, enlightenment, nirvana, and other feelings of this type are encountered here.

    The Poetic Edda: Grimnismol
    The Poetic Edda, tr. by Henry Adams Bellows, [1936], full text etext at
  • "Change has an absolute limit: This produces two modes ( 2 ) :

    The two modes produce four forms ( 4 ) ,

    the four forms produce eight tri-grams ( 8 );

    the eight tri-grams determine fortune and misfortune."


    The ancient Chinese told a myth of the man who emerged from the Yellow River carrying a. geometric arrangement Of forty-five points called the lo-shu, ot river plan. The groupings of points were recognized as the numbers one through nine arranged in a 3 x 3  ( 3^2 ) magic square' Its three columns, three rows, and two diagonals always add up to fifteen. Nine cells provide the smallest and first such arrangement in which all nine numbers can be woven in this form of matrix.

     The ancient Chinese saw the magic square as a harmonious biend of the nine archetypal principles of number and a paradigm of cosmic structure and process, mirroring the supreme order of the universe. They used this arrangement to design the nine palaces of the Ming T'ang, or Hall of Light, in which the emperor lived and circulated every forty days, just as terrestrial energy circulates through the landscape in a year. ln the science of feng-shui' the numbers within each cell of the magic square have specific significance for working with the earth's subtle creative energies for the good of society and the environment. The divine central acre was dedicated to Shang-ti, the supreme cosmic ruler.

    • For Agrippa, the numbers themselves in the squares acted directly on the soul, as the elements of the soul were mingled in arithmetic proportion.

    Esoteric Mysteries rarely make sense to the mind’s intelligence and simply because they require a different medium of perception/reception before they become comprehensible and this different perception is defined in Symbolist terms as ‘the intelligence of the heart’.

    In speaking of the Neters, we are speaking of the expressions of this intelligence of the heart and of the Mysteries as they were conveyed in Pharaonic Egypt. In Helipolis, ‘the absolute beginning of all things’, we are dealing with the primal mystery, Atum, who becomes One and then Two and on up to Eight, as stated in a Coffin Text:

    I am One that transforms into Two
    I am Two that transforms into Four
    I am Four that transforms into Eight
    After this I am One

    (Coffin of Petamon, Cairo Museum no: 1160) [6]

    *The One who began the ‘becoming’, according to the teachings given at Heliopolis, is Atum. This name has the meaning of ‘All’ and ‘Nothing'

    Svadhishthana is associated with the unconscious and with emotion. It is closely related to the Muladhara in that Muladhara is where the different samskaras (potential Karmas) lie dormant, and Svadhisthana is where these Samskaras find expression. It is associated with the element of water, the sense of taste and the act of procreation.

    The equivalent chakra in the Vajrayana tantra systems of Tibet is called the "Secret Place" four fingers below the navel. It is red in colour, with 32 downward pointing spokes. Meditation on this point produces great bliss

    The navel and the region below when touched by the finger or the tip of the tongue or a result in the production of erotic sensations.[23]

    The gift of this chakra is accepting your originality, expressing your authentic voice and speaking your truth.

    This chakra is located in the neck and the throat. Due to its association with hearing, it is related to the ears... as in Eargasm

    The energy of this chakra allows you to seek knowledge that is true, beyond limitations of time and space, beyond cultural and family conditioning.  When it is open, negative experiences are transformed into wisdom and learning.

    The main challenge for the fifth chakra is doubt and negative thinking. When you gain and verify your knowledge through meditation and direct experience, then doubt and negativity are removed.

    • The "way of the Throat Chakra" is the way of inspired creativity, seeking and sharing of the truth.

    It is the way of standing up for what you believe, saying no when you need to, and being open and honest in what you say.

    § Shelter - Open The Door §

    The Egyptian terms for the ceremony are wpt-r and wn-r, both translating literally to "opening of the mouth." The verb wpi denotes an opening that entails splitting, dividing or separating, and is used to describe the separation of two combatants, the dividing of time or even a determination of the truth. The verb wn emphasizes accessibility and exposure, used in contexts such as wn-hr, literally "open the face", but more correctly meaning "see" or "be seen".
