Medusa and Hydra Unraveled

8  Medusa Jpg

In my last Blog, Mirror Mirror, we have the history of General Miles and his war with the Apaches as a template and the fact that Xenophon called his bright shield heliographs, “Aspis also interpreted as snakes”, we can use that information as the starting point to unwind these “Riddles” of Medusa and Hydra. Medusa’s adversary was also a herculean figure that also had Zeus as his father. Though Perseus (Lightning Shield) was born1 of Dana’e (not Alcmena), who after Zeus had tired of Perseus’ mom, the King of Seriphus fell in love with her. The problem was the King did not like being reminded that he was not Dana’e’s first love. She had a son; to the King it seemed Perseus was always in the way. Now Perseus is in “The Way”2 immortalized in the night sky, north of Taurus and to the right of Andromeda and to the left of Aurica. Perseus was also the founder of Clytemnestra’s home town, Mycenae. The King of Seriphus devised a Quest for young Perseus to prove to the world that he was a man and at the same time do a service for the Crown. This was a quest that the king was sure would rid him of this unwanted memory of Dana’e’s past. The King sent Perseus to Gorgon (the land of ugly women) and to Medusa the monster woman with aspis for hair. 3However, those aspis were: Xenophon’s bright shield heliographs: NOT SNAKES.

Each aspis was a magic mirror or heliograph that was installed on one of Medusa’s many mountain top or watchtower “Sentinel outposts” each of which were manned by her faithful Gorgons and those watchtowers were really her eyes and ears who sent communiques back to her from the horizon and beyond. The Gorgon sentinel out post was symbolized as snakes emanating from Medusa and these outposts had only one Eye, a mirrored shield that the Gorgons would blink (or wink) messages to Medusa and to other sentinel outposts, communiques that allowed for direct interaction with Medusa in her citadel in real time. In so doing Medusa controlled the “High Ground”. These heliographs gave up to the minute intelligence to Medusa, just as General Mile’s mountain top heliographs gave him the advantage over the Apache.

These mirrored shields were also known as Eyes or Cyclopes, sorry that word Cyclopes’ also means a disk of copper with a bright finish4 besides the common definition of a one-eyed monster5 and the Egyptians called these Cyclopes, Horus, udjat depicted as a human eye and eyebrow.6 These were quicksilver coated copper shields/disks, a magic mirror using the alchemist silver trick.

Geronimo said of those mirrors:“A power that I could not understand”

Because of the heilographic communication system which Medusa used, she was able to keep a constant watch on strangers, merchant caravans, and enemy troop movements. Medusa could set up ambushes with her troops, long before the unsuspecting visitor could even know that Medusa was aware of him. It must have seemed as if that stranger was moving like a stone when events overtook him.

Now Perseus had some advisers, Nymphs “Smart young women” at least as smart as Clytemnestra. These Nymphs gave that young man some good advice.7 Wear Shoes of Swiftness8 to be able to out run Medusa’s lighting fast communications system. So the Nymphs gave him some “Six League Boots” called the Shoes of Swiftness. The text does not call her Nike the goddess of Winged Victory but my guess is that she had some shoes for him to wear, however, those shoes never left the ground they were the wings of the Great Falcon.9

bird blinks

I am Horus, the great Falcon upon the ramparts of the house of him of the hidden name.

Horus was the heliograph that was on the platform of the Great Pyramid.

My flights have reached the horizon.

Blinks of light “The message” could be read as far away as the horizon and be transmitted to the next horizon.

I have passed by the gods of Nut. I have gone further that the gods of old. Even the most ancient bird could not equal my very first flight.

A speed unequaled, because the messages that traveled at the speed of light to the horizon.

I have removed my place beyond the power of Set, the foe of my father Osiris.

Messages that were traveling above the enemy that had no way stop the message.

No other god could do what I have done.

I have brought the ways of eternity to the twilight of the morning.

These messages could be transmitted during the daylight hours at speeds that would take days of travel by the fastest horsemen and that communication was done in a matter of seconds. A feat that would seem to be as amazing as Time Travel would be today.

I am Unique in my flight

The message could be sent and the sender, stay at the point of origination.

One of the many symbols of Horus was the winged sun disk 10with a mirror in its center. The wings of this heilographic device were not to fly with but too damper or screen the light so the field of view would be reduced. We get our letter “A” and the Sanskrit’s first letter from the Sun Disk’s folded wings.

You most often see the Sun disk with its wing spread: but when the wings are folded to reduce the field of view the Sun disk becomes an “A” from the overhead view. The light being affected in the same way that movie studio set lights use the same type of wings to put light only to the place most needed. This device gave Perseus knowledge from as far away as “the HORUSion” or six leagues away without taking a step. The messenger god of Rome was Mercury who also had winged feet of swiftness. Remember the metal that gave these copper mirrors their shine, mercury, the trick of the Alchemist silver.

The Nymphs Advised Perseus

Wear the Cap of Darkness and Use a Sword of Sharpness”

The Sentinel outposts of Medusa used the sun as a light source for their communication system making that interaction impossible during the nighttime hours: and because of the darkness, consequently, there was not enough light for the Gorgons to see clearly in the dark. Night is the “Cap of Darkness” and was the perfect time for Perseus to move unseen by Medusa’s watchtowers.

One tooth is all that the Gorgons had”, one copper sword, this type of weapon was the standard military issue of the time and was cheap, easy to sharpen; but would not hold a sharp edge and would nick with the first use. Unfortunately, because of that softness, they would become dull quickly and the sharper the copper sword, the quicker it would become blunted. Iron swords that were made from meteors were available, but were rare. Even so, the gold miners of that era had an abundance of magnetite iron that was cast off in the refining of gold, so that iron was available and easier to locate than a Falling Star. Though both types of Iron swords would keep an edge and if the antagonist was strong enough, he could cut a copper sword in two with one blow, that Iron sword made it easier to capture the Sentinel Outpost.

Because, of that victory Perseus was able to use the mirror of the Sentinel Eye to tell Medusa that he, Perseus was moving away from Medusa when he was actually coming toward her. Therefore, Medusa was unaware of the approach of Perseus; consequently, her defenses were down. This apathy was because she had grown to rely on the aspis (heliographs or mirrors) to blink a warning before an intruder could enter her city. This complacency made it easy for Perseus to walk in, and defeat Medusa.

Hydra Verses Hercules

 

Now let us get back to Perseus’ big brother, and Hercules’ problem, The Hydra. Again it is a problem that deals with a beast with many aspis heads or (heliographic) Sentinels Out posts. However, this time those Sentinels Out posts were on wooden watchtowers, Sentinel Outposts that were in the command of the “High Ground.” As a reference we will have to come back to the mid-20th century of the Christian era, and the war on the Korean peninsula, a war where thousands of men died over the control of “The High Ground.” There is an Old military adage:

He who controls the High Ground

Controls the Battle.

The reason being is that with the view from the high ground a general can see the battle field and knows where both his troops and those of his enemy troops are. However, his enemy is kept from having that field of view and command and control, making the generals troop’s invisible. This invisibility and this heilographic command and control, allows the general to move his troops unseen by his enemy. Troops moved to give our general the best advantage to win the battle. Today the US Military uses satellites as High Ground Sentinel out posts, but they are somewhat slower than the boots on the ground surveillance of the old fashion “High Ground” sentinels.

The problem for our old friend Hercules and his Legendary “Olive Branch” club had was that after working “all night” to take control of the High Ground Watchtower, and taking the Outposts Aspis heliograph; which was one of the many heads of the Hydra. Hercules would then move onto the next watchtower, leaving that High Ground unguarded, at which time his enemies would re-man the tower with a new aspis heliograph and be back in business of controlling the High Ground. Hercules’ nephew saw what was happening and thought “this is DUMB” So even, though Iolaus was not the warrior that his uncle Hercules was, he knew how to start a fire and burned the watchtowers down after Hercules had cleared them out of enemy troops, but before the enemy could re-man them.

The best snapshot of the uses of the Hittite Winged Sun Disk heliograph is a bas-relief1 sculpture of three men holding the Magic mirrored unit, which is found in the collection at the Metropolitan museum of arts. This sculpture has been dated to two thousand years before the Christian era began. That is a thousand years before King David of Israel, Clytemnestra and the Egyptian Princess Entiu-ny.

Two of the men in the relief are stabilizing the device and directing the reflective beam of light. The third is stabilizing the other two men’s arms. Just above the two men’s shoulders, there are two levers that are used to stabilize the unit if placed on the ground. A round disk on a pole was used to blink the mirror reflection. This is one of the military small portable units used in battle and was carried on the backs of horses. The Sun disk’s wings were not for flying as I have mentioned before, but those wings were for reducing the field of view. In the late 19th century the British military use pipes and even gun bores to narrow the field of view of their heliographs in effect creating the forerunner to our modern LASER.

Medusa’s Gorgons, used horses to transport just as General Miles his heliographs. Homer’s Bellerophn found one of Medusa lost horses with a sun disk aboard with its wings folded over the horse’s flanks. Homer was BLIND1 and everything he spoke of was from a blind man’s perspective, so you cannot take him as an eye witness. Therefore, when Homer was told of a horse with wings on its back and able to deliver messages quickly through the air: Homer explained it as a flying horse. The ancient translation of the word we pronounce Pegasus is Pege-aspis which means a stratagem2 and the signaling bright shield.3. That is why when Bellerophn found that abandoned horse and its precious cargo, he named the horse and its load “Pegasus” or Pege-aspis and after this stratagem of Aries (Mars), enabling Bellerophn to use Pegasus to defeat the Chimera.4

Mohammad was thought to have used this type of winged horse communication system to keep track of Islam’s most holy sites. One of these heilographic sentinel outposts was on the hill where the Dome of the Rock now sits in Jerusalem. Mohammad was a great military leader and would have used that tool of a horse portable heliograph to his greatest advantage, though many Muslims would consider the Magic of the heliograph being connected to Mohammad to be heresy.

Ahura Mazda ,Persepolis

The religious convictions of the Hittites’ were the foundation of the Zoroasterision sect and their main god is Ahura Mazda the good god, of truth, and light.5 One of the most prominent depictions of Ahura Mazda is on the wall of the gateway to the ruined Persian capital of Persepolis where he stands in the middle of a Hittite Sun Disk heliograph where he is holding a small mirror. This is the same type of golden disks that was found in burial shafts of ancient Mycenae found by Heinrich Schiemann in the late 1868-1876 of the Christian era6. Little round Magic Mirrors of gold used to flash messages to the nearest watch tower (cell-tower) giving the man on the go instant communication, so he could keep in touch. Magic Mirrors that were entombed with those leaders, just as today some people are buried with their portable communication devices, cell phones.

In the 13th century, before the Christian era there was a Hittite king called, The Great King of Khatti: though in Egyptian the name would have been pronounced KHUTI. That name is the word for “LIGHTS.” The Great King of Lights fought Rameses II at the battle of Kadish in the Orontes valley in what is now Syria. The Great King of Lights forced Ramses II to sign a treaty in Karnack, Egypt7. The Winged Sun Disks (lights) were used for communication, surveillance, command and control. This gave the Hittite king the advantage over Ramses II of Egypt who was thought to be the best war tactician of his time, Rameses II, was fought to a draw because he did not control the “High Ground.”
