The duality room. Offering of the fabrics and ointments.
Most of the scenes of Room V and Room I are in a state of « transparency ». The representations depicted on a wall in Room I are complementary and analogue to the ones located on the other side of the wall, in Room V. The transparency also indicates by analogy, the communication of all of the liquids and substances located inside one’s head!
The human body’s major vital centres are represented by, and correspond with, three secret sanctuaries within tue temple of Luxor, amongst which two are dedicated to the Endocrine Glands: the pituitary gland (epiphysis) (Room I), and the pineal gland (hypophysis) (Room VII). Room I is consecrated to the Olfactory Bulb, and the olfactory brain, on the side of the forehead, towards the East. The three secret sanctuaries each possess one entrance. We find ourselves here in the symbolism of the « Triple Verb ». The three entrances all lead to Room XII, where the « Eye » is located.
The entrance doors to these three sanctuaries are each dimensioned proportionately depending on the function of the « vital number ». The centre of the Olfactory Bulb is the original « cerebral informant » of any living organism endowed with a central nerve system, in connection with the selective intestinal function of the torso.
On Plate LXXV – North Wall, the King accomplishes certain rituals (Theurgy) or ritual offerings in the presence of the Neter of that location. The Berlin papyrus explains the words and the various steps of these rituals. The formulas are uttered and the ritual gestures are performed by the « priest in his day » (the same as for the planetary attributions of the days of the week). It is always the King who is represented, whilst he is performing the Divine worship.
On the Eastern Wall of Room V, is displays the giving of the « perfume for the holy days », thanks to the unction by which the King is consecrated. This brings us obviously to our own tradition, of the royal unction of the Kings of France.
The Teaching and the practice of this synthesis are proposed to you in the tab entitled « The awakening of the temple-body ». The Divine Alchemical preparation has undergone a first treatment in Room II. A passage through Room X is mandatory before its entrance into Room XII (the Eye) of the Solar course.
Let me remind you here that the incense, the myrrh, the sealant, etc. are merely « symbols » of substances in the temple of Luxor, and only represent physiological substances (internal Way). But through the law of analogical comparison, we can help ourselves get to know them better, by calling upon the Alchemical tradition, and namely through spagyrical preparations (external Way).
The spirit, or substance without form, has to be fixed in order to incarnate itself… and then to become a « tangible » substance! The soul, upon incarnating, has neither body nor any physical appearance, before some food renders it material. There is a perfect analogy between the sanctuary of the olfaction (sense of smell) and the soul (or odour), as well as its separation (division outside of chaos).
The Hieroglyph of the box of fabrics in Room V is located exactly on the olfactive bulb. The symbolic of the Serpent, in this place, is in direct connection with the first information centre developed by the Serpent: « the sense of Smell »! and then redirected, in our own body, by the pineal (epiphysis) and pituitary (hypophysis) glands!
We are dealing here with the Chakra number 6 of the Hindus! Weaving is an analogy with the interlacing of threads, just like the nerves also are interlaced in order to make tangible the individual’s contacts with the ambiance of a place. Here come into play the abilities to discern and judge, which, distributed between the two endocrine glands of the vital source, are gathered in the secret sanctuaries.
Two fires are in action: that of Seth, which separates, and that of Horus, which unifies (Satan and Lucifer).
