Today is 4/14, and that's a cool number for me, since it's my school district: 414. I attended A.G. Bell Elementary. I feel this cosmically meant I had to discover something as cool as the telephone - on a metaphysical level.
14 is the number of Osiris' penis. (Not in inches, though I hear he was hung like a rhino), but in body parts. Set cut his brother Osiris into 14 parts and cast them into the Nile. Isis found all the parts but one - his penis.
Isis then finds and buries each piece of her husband's body, with the exception of the penis, which she has to reconstruct with magic, because the original was eaten by fish in the river.
We can imagine the various body parts of Osiris as representing the various aspects of human consciousness. They were cut up and thrown into the Nile, AKA denial - the subconscious. Set is the realm of the denied subconscious - the denied truth about our Selves.
Isis has found all the others parts - we have come to know our other subconscious parts, but there is still one missing, and this one part is the key to the whole thing. Osiris' penis was eaten by a fish. This means that his sexuality, his divine lust, was taken from him by a creature of the underworld - the fish - Set - is the denied subconscious.
In a key episode in the conflict, Set sexually abuses Horus. Set's violation is partly meant to degrade his rival, but it also involves homosexual desire, in keeping with one of Set's major characteristics, his forceful and indiscriminate sexuality. In the earliest account of this episode, in a fragmentary Middle Kingdom papyrus, the sexual encounter begins when Set asks to have sex with Horus, who agrees on the condition that Set will give Horus some of his strength. The encounter puts Horus in danger, because in Egyptian tradition semen is a potent and dangerous substance, akin to poison. According to some texts, Set's semen enters Horus' body and makes him ill, but in "Contendings", Horus thwarts Set by catching Set's semen in his hands. Isis retaliates by putting Horus' semen on lettuces that Set eats. Set's defeat becomes apparent when this semen appears on his forehead as a golden disk. He has been impregnated with his rival's seed and as a result "gives birth" to the disk. In "Contendings", Thoth takes the disk and places it on his own head; in earlier accounts, it is Thoth who is produced by this anomalous birth.
So, we basically have homos playing the modern representation of Set, or "forceful and indiscriminate sexuality".
This is key, because sexuality is the Force of the universe. We, our own consciousness, is the result of a "forceful and indiscriminate cosmic sexuality". We just need to face it: the creative universe is in a constant state of FUCK.
Note that Horus desired Set's strength. This is because the source of it all, the Power, the Force, Dragon, Snake, Kundalini, is found in the lower chakras, the subconscious or reptilian remnants of our minds.
Set stole the solar power of Osiris. Just to remind y'all, Superman gets his power from the Sun. Superman is the son/sun of Jor-El, who is Marlon Brando. Brando is sex on wheels. Set is sex on wheels. Horus, who, like Superman, has the ability to fly, is the sun/son of Osiris.
He is the rising sun. And he only rises when he accepts his other "dad" - Set.
Homosexuality is so much in fashion it no longer makes news. Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences and I am not ashamed. I have never paid much attention to what people think about me. But if there is someone who is convinced that Jack Nicholson and I are lovers, may they continue to do so. I find it amusing. (1976)As we all know, Jack is the devil - the "Shining". He is the rising and setting son/sun.
The "rising sun" of human consciousness only rises out of the "sea" of the subconscious. Osiris' penis may represent his sexual desire, but that's only the tip of the iceberg. His penis is the thing that actually creates the universe.
Think about that sometimes, ye lonely masturbator. Think that you might have, in your very own hands, the key to it all. Or at the very least: a very cool metaphysical telephone.
That is why Michelle Shocked is right:
The 51-year-old singer reportedly said that if California’s Proposition 8, which effectively bans gay marriage, is overturned, “it will be the downfall of civilization, and Jesus will come back.”Gay marriage will bring back Jesus, who is Horus, who is Osiris and Set re-united, who is the symbolic representation of human consciousness and subconscious united in holy matrimony.
