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.
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
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.
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
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.
