Another viewpoint concerning this dead/live body or blood of life question arises from the fact that the word "cross" did not appear in the Bible until after 500 AD.23 This explains why the "Latin" (Roman) or "Passion" cross, the primary icon or logo of Christianity, did not appear in Christian art until 600 AD either.24 In the original Greek version of the New Testament the word used for the Pillar upon which Jesus was Crucified was Stau-ros.
As we have seen, in Egypt tau was another name for the ankh, the Cross of Life. Ros means wisdom and dew. Amalgamating these word meanings, renders Stau-ros as "the Pillar or Cross of Life or Wisdom," perfectly aligning it with the concept of the Saba, the Egyptian term for the 'blood of life', and soma, the Greek and Hindu soma as the blood of life or wisdom.
The lower section of the ankh or Key of Life is a cross. More interestingly, the Key of Life was made from a branch from the Tree of Life that grew in the Garden of Eden. The Church claimed the True Cross was also made of the same wood that grew as the Tree of Life in Eden.25 Like the Key of Life, Adam conveniently passed the cross along his bloodline for the express purpose of crucifying the Savior (who in this case would be the a~tom) whenever or wherever he appeared.
The Egyptian name for the Tree of Life, we have seen, was the Djed pillar, a ladder to heaven, sacred to Osiris and Horus, the Egyptian 'savior' figure. This 'ladder' is a symbol of that which must be ascended in order to reach Anu in Tula, the core Sun behind the sun, behind A~tum. It was described as the ladder by which souls of the dead made their way to the Fields of Peace (which, coincidentally, were always said to lie to the north, the same direction as Tula.)
In the Pyramid Texts, in which the pharaoh's journey to immortality is described, the two TET pillars are shown on either side of the "Door of Heaven." The doors remain sealed until the pharaoh utters the word of power. Then, suddenly, the "double doors of heaven open up... the aperture of the celestial windows is open." And soaring as a great bird, the pharaoh's Ka has reached the land of the living.
In this depiction drawn by a savant in Napoleon's army from the Temple of H-orus at Edfu in Egypt, fourteen steps on an ascending stairway lead to a pillar topped by a crescent moon cradling the eye of A~tum. This ceremony is supervised or conducted by Thoth who stands on a line that leads into his moon sky-boat or Ark behind him.
The Crown of Thorns and the Stau-ros Pillar also aligns the Crucifixion with the Great Pyramid complex in Egypt. The ancient Egyptians called this complex the Ros-tau,26 the mirror image of Stau-ros. The Giza-Rostau complex was at the end of the 'sacred road of the neters,' suggesting it was a passageway used by the gods to enter the Tuat or underworld. Jesus may have been the last of their kind. It appears he was not the first to use this Pillar to create an exit portal from Earth.
The ladder concept appears in between the time of Horus and Jesus in the story in which Jacob ascended a Ladder to Heaven. An important Sumerian myth of Anu interpreted by Sitchin describes a similar device with an identical result.27
In a morning-time ceremony in which Anu departs Earth, Enki and Enlil, two sons of Anu, await Anu at what is called the "golden supporter." They hold several objects: "that which opens up the secrets" (most certainly the Key of Life, which was used as the 'remote control' for the Tree of Life), "the Sun disks," and the "splendid shining posts."
The "golden supporter" device is sheathed in a golden skin.
Anu and his wife, Antu, stand before the golden supporter, which can only be the golden needle, the Pillar or Tree of Life. The device comes alive, the gate swings open and Anu and Antu enter the Abyss (sometimes called the Fish of Isis).
The Crucifixion of Jesus. Two people were known to flank this third person who stands upon a cross, a gateway. The sun and moon symbols can be seen above him.
Incredibly, Zecharia Sitchin has recovered what may be depictions of this scene. In this scene we see two people flanking an entrance to a gateway in which a third person makes an entrance (or exit). The sun and moon symbols can be seen above this gateway.
The two guards (transformed into thieves in the New Testament) hold devices, long poles with circular tops, which Sitchin concludes served an astronomical purpose. He also equates them with golden pillars at the entrance to Solomon's
This being so, can we see these devices as "golden needles"? Is the story of this golden needle woven deep into the story of Jesus' crucifiction? Is the 'silver thread' woven by this needle the wormhole linking Earth with Heaven?
By this rendering, Jesus' agony in the garden may not be a physical mutilation. Instead, it would mean soul travel to an otherworldly locality, Tula. Mary Magdalene's painful tears in the 'cave' or 'tomb' for her daredevil Savior would have actually taken place inside that marvelous cave in the wilderness -- the Great Pyramid.

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
