𝍐⚌ Silver Stars 10 AM (November 20 AM) – “Ræpčər” (Jai’ai)
The Outside Zone of Yang at the Individual Coalescing Quadrants of the 9th-Person Perspective
The Yang Master at the Seat of Actualization at The Throne of Atman at the Letter of Realization
Origin (English) rapture: ecstatic pleasure or joy; transportation to another sphere of existence; (according to some Christian teachings) the meeting of believers with Jesus Christ upon the beginning of the Second Coming of Christ.
In the preceding metaword of Lingua-U, we saw the pattern for Rome or Ronin, which is generally considered the 666th hexagram of the Lingua-U metalanguage. However, if the count begins with zero instead of one (as happens when using number base calculators to convert Lingua-U characters into their numeric equivalents), this is the 666th station. In Christian terms, it is the Number of the Beast. The Day of Wrath. The Day of Rapture.
As Yang Hsiung observes in the Canon of Supreme Mystery, this transition is of tremendous importance on account that it signals a sort of reversal of polarity between Yang and Yin for the duration of the calendar year. The weaker is now stronger than the strong, and the strong weaker. Traditional meanings and associations are wiped away.
This is an Odd station, the Seat of Actualization at the Letter of Realization, the Yang Masters of Oddballs, Oddities, Odd Fellows, and Oddsmakers; the Yin Masters of Odd-Even, Odd Couples, Odd-Come-Shortlies, and the Odd Girl Out; and the Yung Masters of Odd Multiples, Odd Numbers, and Odd Leggs. The Atman has not yet matured; it is still Dark, not Taut.
Lingua-U associates this station with several poignant words beginning with Rubicon and Ruby. When the Reformer passes the Rubicon, he takes a decisive, irrevocable step. The phase of merely Writing about reform is past; the days of Realizing the nature of reform is past; the time for taking decisive action has come. The Reformer must be Rude. The Reformer must be willing to employ a Ruse to effectuate the changes afoot.
If this sounds like a very different attitude on the part of the Reformer, you are correct. The Reformer is not who we thought they were. They have been transformed. The Throne of Relationship is past; the Throne of Atman, the True Self or Essential Self or World Soul has appeared at long last. At no other Throne in the Silver Stars does the Self appear so boldly or dramatically. Beginning with Silver Stars 10, the Self has one last performance to unveil…
Silver Stars 10 brings the Rabbi, the Rabbit, the Rap, the Rapture, the Wrapping, the Raveling, the Raft, the Wrath, the Radical, and the Rat. It is cloaked in the robes of a holy man, fertile and prolific as a rodent, striking a blow, enclosing or finishing a chapter in the world’s history, tangling and confusing, saving as if offering a lifeboat, and filling the heart with ecstasy.
Among Christians, the word Rapture has a specific theological meaning based on Bible verses such as First Thessalonians 4:17: “Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.” Is this, as fundamentalists believe, the day on which Christ returns and snatches believers into heaven? Or is something else… something like the Second Coming of Christ as the arrival of the Atman, the Descent of the World Soul?
The Third Column brought the Yang of Duplicity (𝌚⚌) at the Throne of Duty together with the Yin of Odbudowaač (𝌵⚌), the Polish word for Rebuilding, at the Throne of Exuding. At last the lies and secrets can be discarded. A world torn by Revolution and blemished by Reform has a chance at a Rapture, Raveling, or Raft.
The First Transversal brought the Yang of Baptism or Badness (𝌈⚌) at the Throne of Breaking with the Yin of the Gaffe or Addiction (𝌬⚌) at the Throne of Gunas. The downfall or the rebirth combined with the subtle mistake to generate the Yung of Wrath or Rat at the Throne of Atman. This is a major difficulty.
At the Third Tier, the Yang of Madness or Map (𝌾⚌) at the Throne of Magic merged with the Yin of the Wafting (𝍇⚌) (Passing Through the Air) at the Throne of Water to the Yung of Rapture. An image of the believer passing magically through the air…
The Yung of Rapture combines the Yang of the Map to Atman with the Yin of Magical Wafting through the Watery Air, like the Rain of the Obvious or the Reign of the Ronin-turned-Ruler.
𝍐⚎ Silver Stars 10 PM (November 20 PM) – “Ruθləs” (Jai’ai)
The Outside Zone of Yin at the Individual Coalescing Quadrants of the 9th-Person Perspective
The Yin Master at the Seat of Actualization at The Throne of Atman at the Letter of Realization
Origin (English) ruthless: without pity or compassion; unrelenting, adamant
At noon, Silver Stars 10 turns Yin instead of Yang at the Mark of Mastery. The morning of Wrath becomes the afternoon of Ruthlessness.
The first words to appear are Roof, Ruth, and Ruthless. In the Bible, the Book of Ruth is set in the days “when the judges are judged.” To enter into the next phase of the Kalendar’s days, the final days of the year, the Reformer may need the hardheartedness of the Ruthless individual, steeled to distractions of an overly sentimentalized nature.
Compassion is rightfully held out as a quintessential spiritual virtue. But in the Kalendar, virtues have a day and a season; and so we find that compassion is in eclipse today. Today the virtue is Ruthlessness, unrelenting and adamant pursuit of the Reformer’s ultimate agenda. Only through unflinching conviction and muscular morality will the Reformer’s ends come to pass.
The next words to appear include Rasp, Rascal, Rash, Rational, Rationality, Rag, Rag-Man, Rack, Wrack, and Ratchet. Reason, the Yung Master at the Seat of Structure at the Letter of Realization, has bequeathed a new Ethos to Silver Stars 10 PM: Rationality. It is the quality of being in accordance with the possession or exercise of Reason; or, in mathematics, the quality of being associated with whole numbers; or, in economics, the assumption that a person will act in accordance with true self-interest. Rationality is a Yin Master at the Seat of Actualization for the Throne of Atman, but it is not yet the True Self, which will make its solo cameo appearance in The Kalendar at the next Seat. It is an Odd Couple with the True Self itself, never quite comprehending its nature, even as it presses alarmingly to Roust it from its slumber.
Back in the old West in America, the Rag-Man was the person who brought news from time to time. When a person died, the Rag-Man would remove the deceased’s personal objects and take them away. They would sell the belongings of the dead, traveling from town to town, crying, “Rags for sale! Rags for sale!” This is a picture of Ruthlessness become dirty but useful like a Rag, or Rationality ignoring sentimentality for necessity and profit.
Remember the Third Column. Today, it sends you the Yang of the Dagger and the Yin of Exactmess merged into Ruthless Rationality. Be grateful; you are getting what has been sowed for you.
Remember the First Transversal. Today, it fits you with the Yang of a strong V-shaped Back, the Yin of a Gadget to get you where you need to go, merged into a Rack for framing what needs to be held. Do you see how you need less than you used to? Rationality is the great Reducer.
Remember the Third Tier. Today, it delivers to you the Yang of Magic and Masculinity with the Yin of Waxing (Showing You A Fuller Illumination of the Moon), merged into a likeable Rascal who will subsist after the ecstasy has gone when the feeling has past… or endure the days following a Rapture for everyone who has been “left behind”.
