So, the skull and crossbones is linked to the number 9 and again, enlightenment and the Holy Grail - which are both seen as good, pure and holy.
It became his protecting genius. Others have found this part of the text very strange, however I understood what it meant immediately, and for confirmation I looked up the meaning in a standard dictionary and found perfect corresponding evidence for the Greater Shining. Genius , inborn faculty. The two were the same.
There is a subtle underground symbolism going on here. Suddenly the Skull and Crossbones symbol, as explained in the Templar text is revealed before our eyes. At this point it crossed my mind that I had only gone back to the Templars.

I wondered just how far back in time I could possibly go with this skull and crossbones image? The earliest reference to the actual skull and crossbones I could discover was the Templar reference.
However, taking the image as symbolic, which is what it indeed was, then we are looking for the shape - a skull or head with a diagonal cross or saltaire below. Amazingly, I found this in Ancient Egypt and on the tomb of Tutankhamen. Carrying a staff or sceptre was, in ancient Egypt, a symbol of universal power. The Flail was used to beat animals or indeed people into submission and shows authority like the sceptre - hence their interchangeable nature. The crook was a shepherd's tool, used to pull stray animals by the neck without hurting them.
Here we have an image of push and pull. This shepherd aspect of the king is as old as Mesopotamia and possibly beyond. Tutankhamen was seen with these devices held upon the chest in the diagonal cross form, making a replica of the skull and crossbones in form, whereas many other Pharaohs held them outwardly away from each other. When dead, the king becomes Osiris, and I find that this same image is seen upon Osiris and is therefore his symbol - a symbol of the ultimate universal power and borrowed by his earthly representative the Pharaoh.
The symbolism now becomes open to see Osiris is the archetypal resurrecting god - a symbol of regeneration, akin to the power of the Templar in the text.
So the Templar is symbolically the same as Osiris on Earth. It should have been no surprise, as this is the home of the ancient and original Shining Ones. And yet, amazingly there was more to come. I turned my gaze even more laterally and found another symbol related entirely to both the skull and crossbones and the Egyptian influence.
The symbol is now commonly known as the Chi-Rho - so-called because it is composed of the Greek letters chi X and rho P. The war over these two letters is fought between Christians and historians; between fundamentalists on both sides and yet both sides are missing the point. The Christians claim that the Chi-Rho form the first two letters of Christ Cristos and the historians claim that the symbol can be found hundreds if not thousands of years before Christianity and was therefore usurped by them.
I needed to look into this to discover the origins, meaning and why it so resembled the style of the skull and crossbones. According to Sir Flinders Petrie - the Egyptologist - the monogram Chi-Rho was the emblem of the Egyptian god, Horus, thousands of years before Christ and is therefore a link between Horus the savior, and Christ the savior.
I had already noted on several occasions the links between these ancient characters and so this was highly believable and conclusive. This, if true, shows again the direct link between Horus, the Chi-Rho monogram and Christ. Indeed many European scholars have actually identified Heracles or Hercules as none other than an emblem of Jesus Christ.
But there were even more links, as I discovered. Karast is a person who is anointed enlightened or shining as a Heru Hero during his or her own lifetime. This Ausur is none other than Osiris , the same Egyptian god I found with the skull and crossbones symbol with the flail and sceptre. The anointing, in the physical sense, as the anointing also applies in the spiritual sense, derived from the body or cadaver being anointed with spices, oils, and resins to preserve it.
The body is then wrapped in bandages, placed in a coffer, which is then placed upright to symbolize resurrection.
So, amazingly we have a link between the Chi-Rho and the symbol of Osiris - god the father of Horus or Christ. No wonder that a philological and historical war rages and that Christianity refuses to accept this remarkable link. So, I wondered, what do the Christians believe this Chi-Rho to derive from? Well, I found that it goes back to Constantine and was an amazing propaganda device to establish the new Roman, and therefore to become, Catholic Empire.

In fact, the Christians had been using this symbol secretly as a sign of their faith and Constantine or somebody who advised him simply picked up on the fact that this symbol and the whole savior process was as ancient and widespread as I am outlining here - and according to some - it was used to plunder the treasuries of the pagan temples.
Not only that, but geographically it goes right into the heart of original Shining territory. The stories progress through time and I did find myself skipping around because the historical stories were pretty gruesome.

I thought the contemporary ones brought a fresh take on the topic and enjoyed them the best. I ended on a high note, "HMS Nefarious," which made me laugh, so that was nice.
