Material (Waking)-World Throne for Being Sat in by Ghost of the Dead

{TL-MRJ deities are often depicted sitting on thoroughly invisible (not merely transparent) thrones : for, e.g., amid the 6th Hour of the Night, there "must be mentioned the double company of the gods of Osiris, one company being depicted in human form sitting on invisible thrones" (B:GE,1, p. 228). However, they all do reside in worlds which are invisible to alive mortal persons while those persons are in their waking-state. It is reasonably probable that the waking-state world is likewise invisible to the deities; but it is likewise at least possible that ritual objects (in the waking-world) which have been consecrated to this purpose may be palpable to the deities, even though remaining invisible to them (and to any mortal who may be visiting their world in a dream -- whose experience of this is praesumably the basis of the canonical Netherworld-books).}

"New Wife brought Father Bundle {cf. mummy-bundles buried on Paracas paeninsula of Peru`}

in a special cayuca {cf. Inuit \kayak\}

to be hung between

forked sticks in a dug-out cave. ...

They set a chair beside the cave.

Father's Soul

would roam and roam

the world all day {cf. TL-MRJ "Coming Forth by Day", from their encoffined cadavres, of souls of the dead}

trying to be a peace with itself. {Instead, in order to visit ongoing religious festivals, according to the litterature of TL-MRJ.}

Father Soul would return to cave

at night

to sit in the chair to rest. {cf. TL-MRJ return of souls into their tombs each evening in oder to sleep through the night therein.}

Cunas have no chairs

but for dead Souls." {At a Balinese funeral, there may be a "Throne for the dead " ("ThDBC")} {A Chinese funeral procession may include "sedan chairs for the dead" ("FCSChD").}

"FCSChD" = "Funeral Cortege with Sedan Chairs for the Dead".

(Mola ... Person. p. 11)

"I remembered the chair

put out for my dead father

in the Secret Burial Place.

I remembered a mola dress

my mother sewed.

The dress was all-over the octopus -- {Apparently, a woman who is abandoned by her husband is required to make for herself, and to wear, a dress depicting a marine okto-pod- (nominative case \-pous\). Also, apparently a woman giving birth to an albino son (albinos daughters [cf. Mola ... Person. p. 13] are apparently either killed at birth, or else sent to the San Blas islands -- to the north of Panama -- where apparently the entire population is albino : which must be why the man narrating repeatedly referreth to himself as of the San Blas; though his parents must actually have resided in the isthmos of Panama`, in-as-much as his mother sold coconuts to the Choco` coast region in Colombia) is required to be abandoned by her husband.}

a terrible creature of evil to the Cunas. {The Hawai>ian god Kana-loa (aequivalent to the New-Zealand Ma-ori squid-god Tana-roa) is described as an "hot-striking octopus" (MWB:K, p. 96).} {[p. 58] "In the Gilbert Islands of the Pacific, an octopus god, Na Kika, ... shoved up the earth from the bottom of the sea to create the islands. ... To Moorea's seafaring people, the ... octopus was considered the island's divine protector. ... [p. 59] In the village that is now called Papetoai ..., there was ... a temple dedicated to the octopus. ... And today, it ... still celebrates the octopus : it has eight sides!" (M:OS, pp. 58-9) The 8-sided tower in Hellenic Orthodox ecclesiastic architecture (as likewise in antient <arabia, perhaps including "many-towered >iram, the like of which was not built on Earth" as mentioned in the Qur>an) may be related both to the Valentinian Ogdoad (of the Pleroma), and/or to the abundance of okto-pod depictions in Minoan (Kretan) art. In Hellenic, the substantive \HELedoNE\ 'oktopod, kephalopod' could suggest the ruse whereby the nephele 'cloud' "that looked exactly like" Helene (DCM, q.v., p. 186b) was substituted for her in order to accompany Paris/Alexandros, while the real HELeNE "was carried off to" Aiguptos "and entrusted to" Proteus the sea-god : likewise a shadow (chaya) which assumed the shape of (*SALaNyu >) Saran.yu was substituted for her in order to accompany Vivasvant. Samjn~na (Saran.yu) meanwhile assumed "the guise of a mare" (MBh, "Anus`asna Parvan" 150 -- PE, s.v. "Samjn~a 2)"), which could seem to be related to the Prajapati's assuming a stag-guise; but the context of Brahma's infatuation is limited (in Skanda Puran.a 2:2:26 -- PE, s.v. "Brahma 16)(53)(5)") to a concern for Sandhya (the 'twilight language' of substitutional terminology to be employed in occult rites, similar to the use of the "Language of Suiva/Zuyua", according to Books of Chilam Balam), so that the shape-shifting PROTeus (DCM, q.v., p. 395b) could be treated instead as aequivalent to the sandhi of phoneme-shifting by way PRATis`akhya (PE, s.v. "Kramapat.ha", p. 416b).} [written 7 July 2018]

{The Mochica "fearsome forehead ornament with the feline head and octopus-shaped tentacles ending in catfish heads" ("AMP") may be intended to relate the oktopod to the catfish N<R (Neer) and thus to the Hun-ahpu 'one blowgun-shooter' [which may relate to "Choco' blowgun darts" (mentioned in Mola ... Person. p. 10)] brethren who transformed themselves into catfishes (after, according to the Popol Vuh, they had witnessed unto hot seats for any harrowers of the netherworld Xibalba).}

"I watched the women

do their sacred dances,

felt very privileged." {Possibly, these dances are the Kuna aequivalent to the Qqec^wa (in Peru`) tribe's "Dance of the Pleiades", which is performed only among women. "Atlas was the father of the Pleiades" (GM 39.d) : (GM 41.e) "Artemis was vexed with him for having amorously chased her virgin companions, the Pleiades, daughters of Atlas and Pleione."}

"Except for the Pygmies of Africa,

we are the smallest people in the world." {A woman, who told me that she was from Panama`, and who was so short that the top of her head reached only to my shoulder, used to stand beside me in the picket-line of demonstrating persons holding protest-signs, standing in front of the state-capitol aedifice. She was of the same stature, and of the same physique (weighing more that I do) as the woman, the membre of a tribe (apparently one of those on the lower Ni-Geir river, below its confluence with the river Benue [cf. the name \Binnuwy\ 'builder, repairer' in the TNaK]) whom I met in the mid-1990s on a ward of the insane-asylum at the same state's capital; and whom (at least 20 years later) I continue to call by telephone at the location where she is as-yet a ward-of-the-state. It is curious that she came from the town named from the AmerIndian tribe having this name phonetically identical with that of the Maya god (\Ah Yamas\ or \Yamazi\, the name occurring in these forms in the Books of Chilam Balam) who used to be particularly cited (because he thought it similar to that of Vaidik god Yama; more actually it is a likely cognate of \Mas.ya\, name of a plant-god described in the Zend-Awesta) by David Humiston Kelley (when speaking to me -- he did not allege it in any publication).}

"The building of the Panama Canal

... advanced technology" {Its technology is such that is hath locks to hold the water from the interior lakes, which are at a high elevation, in the higher instances of the locked sections of the Canal. This technology was apparently envisaged in the TL-MRJ Netherworld-books painted in the royal tombs during the New Kingdom -- the locks for flotation of the Sun-god's barque separate apart each of the 12 hours of the sun's nocturnal voyage.}

"I saw that my father was Neer." {cf. N<R-MR 'catfish-chisel', the name of a TL-MRJ praedynastic monarch whose plaque beareth this hieroglyphic inscription : not unlikely identical with (in the dynasty of Agade) Nar-mer the grandson of S`ar-kin (whose name resembleth \SRQ\ the name of the scorpion-goddess, whose name-glyph serveth to designate the plaque of the praedecessor of N<R-MR). Armored catfishes are abundant in the Orinoco river-delta.}
