That’s some extensive research you took on the Grail symbolism in ancient myths, and the Irish lore awaiting for the 2nd installment, and maybe you can try to formulate some conclusions.
One thing that jumped at me, if the cauldron is one form of symbolic grail, that opens the gate to numerous other possible associations such as witch cauldron, alchemical cauldrons, ayahuasca brewing cauldron, even the atomic bomb (!?)
Another thing that I noticed over several posts is Merkaba, which I don't think has anything to do with Kaaba (stone) and I don’t think it quite resonates with the Grail, so maybe you can revisit that term, for your clarification.
NA is a known word of power among occultists like John Dee and his predecessor Cornelius Agrippa, derived from Torah;
In English translations of the Bible it is rendered as 'please', or 'yea', or “now” or whatever interjection seems fit for the meaning of the verse, however Kabbalists took it literally as a word of power akin to one of the secret names of G_d;
Bear in mind there are no commas in the Hebraic text,
Pardon, please, the iniquity of this people (Numbers 14:19)
סְלַח־נָ֗א לַֽעֲוֹ֛ן הָעָ֥ם הַזֶּ֖ה
selah na la-awon ha-am hatzeh
I shall pay my vows to the Lord, now, in the presence of all His people (Psalms 116, 14)
נְדָרַי לַֽיהֹוָ֣ה אֲשַׁלֵּ֑ם נֶגְדָה־נָּ֜֗א לְכָל־עַמּֽוֹ
Hmm…that doesn’t make sense. Not sure even the comparison was appropriate in the context of the original question in the C's transcript. Is that your only source?However, the Merkhaba is something that was brought to Earth from Kantek and is crystalline in nature not a stone as such. Why do I think it is the Holy Grail. Well here are the relevant extracts from the transcripts from the C's that lead me to think this:
You seem to have some experience in matters relating to he occult, so I am grateful for you making that connection to the word "Na" as a known word of power. In some ways it worries me though since it might suggest that Dee was being taken in by STS beings who were masquerading as archangels and seeking to flatter him by the dubbing ceremony. What do you think? From what I have read, Kelley was often unnerved by things he saw and experienced in their sessions together, including on one occasion even being physically assaulted. And then there was the session in which a small figure appeared, the size of a child, who handed Kelley a stone of some kind to help in future sessions. Could this figure have been a grey alien perhaps?
If you go by the letter, the C's don't really confirm the equalization of Merkabah = Matriarch Stone = Mother Stone that is made by '(R)'.A: Multiple. In ancient times this object was called the Gift of God. It was used to aid in the manifestation of all things needful for existence.
Q: (A) Manifestation? (R) That sounds like Merkabah. The Matriarch Stone. The Mother Stone. (A) So it can do all kinds of things ... (R) Is this the Merkabah?
A: Mother Stone, yes.
You shouldn't have shied away with this one after all the other references you put in.I have to confess that I had thought of including the Stargate movie reference in the article but then thought better of it since I felt I was already pushing my luck when referring to Star Wars and John Carter on Mars (ref. the Barsoom series).
In my view you need to link together many statements the C's make to get the fuller picture. If we look back in that transcript to the original question that leads into the reference to the Mother Stone, you see Laura asking a question about the object that Vincent Bridges is looking for.Hmm…that doesn’t make sense. Not sure even the comparison was appropriate in the context of the original question in the C's transcript. Is that your only source?
As far as I know Merkabah is a concept specific to the Judaic mysticism, particularly a meditation technique of ascension and contemplation, similar to Tibetan meditation, or a psychedelic vision; It’s derived from Ezekiel's Throne vision and Elijah's chariot of fires ascension. As described by the mystics, you could think of it as a fantastic machinery, can make a wild connection with the Ark, but definitely not with the Grail. It wasn't a 'real object' anywhere in the history or myth, and as a concept is relatively new historically.
The Tesseract from MCU makes more sense than that.
No experience, just some general knowledge. Thank you for your concern, I guess the norm is you have to take everything with precaution, you never know. Better be safe than smart. Will try to keep it simpler here. Yeah, those angels were pretty rough sometimes, you’ll have to think and decide for yourself if they were good or bad based on their depiction and actions in Dee's Diaries, if that’s your litmus test. And as you've acknowledged before, never rely on what other say or write, do your own research and make your own determination.
If you go by the letter, the C's don't really confirm the equalization of Merkabah = Matriarch Stone = Mother Stone that is made by '(R)'.
They acknowledge that the "Mother Stone" is the object, that in ancient times was called "Gift of God" and "was used to aid in the manifestation of all things needful for existence".
At least this is it, how it appears to me.
You shouldn't have shied away with this one after all the other references you put in.
I mean, science fiction is just one contemporary way to re-actualize ancient myths, re-distribute hero worship, re-work archetypes, and so on. This is perfectly fitting in your current expose, making it all the more relevant for our present circumstances. OSIT. Tolkien's oeuvre and the movies made from it are a perfect example too in my opinion.
For those not aware, I have a great fascination for what is hidden away on Mars. It was the C's comments on the Face on Mars that brought me to the Cassiopaean website in the first place. The C's once confirmed in a session that all three planets, i.e., Earth, Mars and Kantek were occupied simultaneously at one time. I posted the above photograph of a Kofun tomb in the shape of a key some while ago now on this thread. However, I have just stumbled upon the article posted below, which I felt I just had to share with you as it only adds to the mystery of our hidden and concealed past.Talk about a synchronicity, after downloading my last post I chanced upon an old episode of Ancient Aliens, which just happened to be about burial mounds and had a piece on Qin Shi Huang's burial complex that was discovered in 1974 by local farmers in Lintong County, outside Xi'an, Shaanxi, China. Terracotta Army - Wikipedia
This was an enormous funeral complex, which features at its heart a large pyramid assumed to contain the Emperor's sarcophagus. Perhaps the most exciting discovery to date has been the large Terracotta Army: Terracotta Army - Wikipedia
The figures include warriors, chariots and horses. Estimates from 2007 were that the three pits containing the Terracotta Army held more than 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses, and 150 cavalry horses, the majority of which remained buried in the pits near Qin Shi Huang's mausoleum. Other terracotta non-military figures were found in other pits, including officials, acrobats, strongmen, and musicians.
At the time the programme was aired, the Chinese authorities had not yet excavated the pyramid. This was because they had found the presence of mercury, a very toxic substance. The Mad Hatter in Alice Through the Looking Glass was not mad for nothing (Victorian hatters used mercury in the process of producing hats, which caused serious mental side effects). In the programme, the Chinese archeologist speculated that the Emperor's tomb might be situated within a small scale recreation of his kingdom inside the pyramid, with possible rivers of mercury representing Chinese rivers with a full scale night sky depicted over the landscape showing the stars that could be viewed in the Chinese night sky. However, the presence of mercury led the Ancient Alien observers to suggest it might be connected with technology since one of the main uses of mercury today is in electronic circuit boards. Mercury has also been found in other ancient pyramid sites including Teotihuacan in Mexico: Liquid mercury found beneath Teotihuacan temple. Is there a possible connection here?
Ancient Aliens is an excellent documentary series for those who have not seen it. It has covered so many topics the C's have discussed over the years and often the guest experts have put forward views that closely correspond with things the C's have said. Indeed, Graham Hancock guested on this particular programme. What interested me is the connection they made in the programme between circular burial mounds such as Newgrange in Ireland and flying saucers. They also made the important observation that when ancient Chinese commentators speak of flying dragons and ancient Greek poets and story tellers speak of flying horses, this was their way of referring to what we would today call UFOs or flying saucers. Since they had no other frame of reference, they used what terms they could relate to in order to describe them. This point may be highly relevant when it comes to the stories of Perseus and his flying horse Pegasus and Helle who fell off a flying ram. When seen in this context, those stories take on a new meaning, which I hope to refer to in later posts.
In the same programme, they also mentioned the strange tombs found in Japan that are literally in the shape of keyholes. The most famous one is probably that at Sato and the scale of it is larger than the Great Pyramid at Giza. Here is a picture:

When the C's said "Seldom are answers so readily obtainable as in the "key" book", did Laura and Ark have a book on the Kofun tombs in their library I wonder?
