PAKAL'S MODERN MYTHOLOGY

The Purification of the World in the XXVIII Olympic Games

 

 
 
 
 

It's no surprise to experts in modern mythology that the XXVIII Olympics in Greece, Athens, presented the most powerful symbols of ancient mythology to the world. In this section, we'll attempt to explain what we feel is the hidden internal message of the Olympics, otherwise in terms of Pakal's words, "the purification of the world," as the Games returned to the original roots.

THE ETERNAL FIRE

Heraclitus taught that fire is the primordial source of matter, ("Everything becomes fire, and from fire everything is born." -- Herakleitos), but he believed that the entire world is in a constant state of change or flux and that most objects and substances are produced by a union of opposite principles. He regarded the soul as a mixture of fire and water. In the Athens Olympics, we see the combination of fire and water as the representation of our souls, which invoke to the gods of Mt. Olympus for their purification. The five rings in fire start the destruction of corruptible things that exist on earth. The old nature is destroyed, dissolved, decomposed, and, in a longer or shorter period of time, transmuted into something else.

THE RED CENTAUR

The representation of the Red Centaur is probably Chiron. He, as a half-man, half-horse, was known for his exceptional goodness and wisdom. He was the only immortal centaur. He became the tutor for a number of famous Greek heroes including: Achilles, Asclepius, Actaeon.

Chiron is the civilized Centaur being known for his wisdom and justice, sometimes wiser than the gods, and certainly wiser than men, whom he surpasses in justice. In the 2004 Olympics, Chiron, the centaur, uses a spear, not an arrow, to open Saturn's space-time, and opens successfully the wisdom of Chronus (Saturn). The connection is not coincidental as we can see in the picture, in the representation of Saturn-Chiron. Notice the drawing of the Sun, Earth and Saturn on the mythological cycladic face of the photo. Saturn is the planet of discipline, duty, limits, boundaries, responsibility, commitment, structure, experience-based authority, restrictions, and reality. Chiron, on the other hand, is the maverick, astrologer, holistic healer, ecologist, and mentor. In the latter role, the Greek mythological Chiron transmutes ordinary mortals into mythic heroes and aids them in the achievement of each of their individual quests.

NOTE: The last Pakal for the opening of the second web site (mexicanhorse.tripod.com) of the Trilogy selected the same mythological symbol in his quest for purification of the world, in the year 2000, and descent into Xibalba in 2012.

THE LAST SUNSET

The last sunset during the last day of the 2004 Olympics is probably the most beautiful metaphor of the Games. Pakal explains, "It is Helios, the Sun God, represented by a handsome youth with a halo standing in a golden chariot carrying the memories of humanity and racing towards the dawn to Mt. Olympus, as the seven Pleiades, and all the other stars, retrace their courses in accord with the sun god." That is, probably, the first and only day that the sun set in the east.

THE FULL MOON

Most attendees to the 2004 Olympics Games missed the meaning of the closing ceremonies as the media put more emphasis in the human activities, rather than the spiritual connection. The ceremony designers, missed the opportunity to establish the connection. Nonetheless, the spectacle was meaningful.

The Full Moon, represented by Selene, is the Greek goddess of the Moon. The Hymn to Selene describes the beauty and power of the goddess of the moon in the Homeric Hymn to Selene.

"Muses, sweet-speaking daughters of Zeus Kronides
and mistresses of song, sing next of long-winged Moon!
From her immortal head a heaven-sent glow
envelops the earth and great beauty arises
under its radiance.

From her golden crown the dim air
is made to glitter as her rays turn night to noon,
whenever bright Selene, having bathed her beautiful skin
in the Ocean, put on her shining rainment
and harnessed her proud-necked and glittering steeds,
swiftly drives them on as their manes play with the evening, dividing the months.

Her great orbit is full
and as she waxes a most brilliant light appears in the sky.
Thus to mortals she is a sign and a token."

She, also called Artemis and twin sister of Apollo, the Virgin goddess of the Moon, is a friend to mortals, and dances through the countryside (while farmers execute the harvest for life renovation) in her silver sandals giving her divine protection to the wild beasts, particularly the very young. She rides her silver chariot across the sky and shoots her arrows of silver Moonlight to the earth below.

The Full Moon, on that night, represented the purification of Earth with the celebration of a nature goddess, protector of the young and helper of women.

CONCLUSIONS

This is the last page of this web site and completed. For the last four years, we have brought interesting themes of what represents the second part of Lord Pakal's Trilogy and his prophecies. We thank to our visitors for their interest in The Search of Lord Pakal Ahau in the 21st Century. The third and last web site will be announced soon in September to complete Lord Pakal's Trilogy.
