He Who Has an Ear

Are You Good at Solving Deep Riddles?

The Menorah and the Two Olive Trees

If you are good at solving riddles and you have an ear to hear, I know a place where you can find a fabulous treasure. It is worth more than anything in the world. It is the secret of intelligence. Not too long ago, I wrote a few articles about perceptual learning in the brain. I wrote about sensors, pattern and sequence learning. However, I am not at liberty to go further at this time.

I realize that some of my readers are very passionate about this. Here is the deal. I already told you where I get my knowledge of the brain from: ancient metaphorical scriptures. Whether or not you believe it is up to you (I don't care if you don't). What I am trying to say is that I am no genius. If I can do it, others can do it too. The awesome secret of sequence learning and invariant object recognition in the brain can be found in chapters 3 to 6 of the Book of Zechariah and in chapter 3 of the Book of Revelation (the message to Sardis).

There is only one problem. The secret is written in metaphors and they are not easy to decipher. I have been trying on and off for close to 17 years and there are many aspects of it that still elude me. Zechariah's text warns the reader that it would not be easy. At the end of the riddle in chapter 6, he wrote, "And it will take place if you completely obey the Lord your God." The literal translation goes something like this, "And it will happen if you listen listen to the words of Yahweh your God." In other words, to get a chance at solving the riddle, other than having faith, one must read the words of the vision over and over and carefully think through every word.

By the way, knowing what the riddle is about is half the secret. The name 'Zechariah' means "Yahweh remembers" in Hebrew. This is a symbolic way of saying that the vision is all about the organization and operation of memory.

As I said, a fabulous treasure awaits. Good luck.

There is something one should keep in mind when deciphering ancient occult texts. All the translations from the original Hebrew or Greek are faulty in one way or another. Some are downright horrible. One example is the Hebrew word עַ֫יִן or 'a.yin' which means 'eye' in English. It is used all over the place in Zechariah's vision. I figured out that it is a metaphor for a pattern or a pattern detector. Sometimes, it is wrongly translated 'appearance' and even 'iniquity' by some translators. The morale of the story is, don't trust the translations.

Fortunately, thanks to the internet, there are all sorts of translation tools available to the researcher at the click of a mouse. Some of them are very good. In order to grasp the true meaning of a Hebrew or Greek word, it's important to be able to look at several examples of its use in other texts.

Again, a fabulous treasure awaits. Happy New Year!
