I write on the B.B.C. Open University forums, all thread sections are monitored before they are allowed to show up, so there isn't any bad lanquage, and follows strict guide lines.

Rather than try writing all this again, can i leave a link to the B.B.C. science and technology forum, where i write?

I use Starlight (Brady) plus other astronomy programmes, but i'm not interested in the projected measure on fixed stars, which isn't accurate, but parans being the astronomical way of looking at electional astrology.

Day marking is very common, this can be by the Egyptian way sunrise, or the ancient Greek way being sunset, the modern way of day marking is also included being midnight.

If i'm allowed to leave a link, please turn page at bottom, there are 20 pages, and i have enough research for another 20 pages at least, all have moderate links attached for easy access, mostly wikipedia, which generally give other links for research.

My thread name is monk......any comments?

But why start a thread in Philosophy & Science that just keeps directing us to another web site? I always thought this was a rather nice place for reading and writing thoughts.

Hi Kirk,

Please note i'm not a conspiracy theorist, in fact my observations have led me to believe that many but not all secret societies wanted to give us democracy, and many died trying to gain this!

When i first visited this forum several years ago, i wasn't ready and politics with this type of study can get in the way, i have grown since then, and i would hope to see comments in my study in this area.

Lets start with a different area from the above links.

What type of restaurant in London in the 1880's would you have to go to, to rub shoulders with political reformers, coupled with those interested with esoteric religious philosophy?

Another clue would be "As the leaves fell during the Autumn of Terror", when Jack the Ripper lurked in the shadows, an 18 year old diminutive male from India arrived in London to study law, his mother told him not to eat certain foods, so he had to visit special restaurants, the people he met there would change his whole life philosophy"

The Indian Male was Gandhi, and the type of restaurant was "Vegetarian".

How could a vegetarian diet have esoteric beliefs, perhaps not now, but in the 1880's?

You will note from link that the Vegetarian Society was founded on 30th September 1847, in Ramsgate, Kent, U.K., 51*N20', 01*E26'.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vegetarian_Society

Remember sunrise, sunset or midnight as a clue to Hermetic simplistic astrology.

Sunrise in Ramsgate using an astronomy programme or Brady's Starlight happened at 06:03:01am on 30th September 1847, while Sirius was culminating in the centre of the sky, straight up from South, within the astrologers four minute margin, so why would the vegetarian society have a Greek/Egyptian philosophy when they started?

The answer being that during that period that vegetarians were often called Pythagoreans, and may have followed that philosophy!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagoreanism

Now the Pythagoreans were interested in two symbols, one featured above is "The Monad", and this symbol is still used in astrology and astronomy to represent the Sun, another symbol they used was a pentagram and in esoteric philosophy this symbol can be Venus or Sirius.

But it wasn't only Pythagoreans that visited vegetarian restaurants in London in the 1880's, which i will show in the next thread section.

Firstly lets look at a noted vegetarian, Henry S. Salt, who had a big effect on Gandhi's emerging philosophy, as he had written a book on Henry David Thoreau.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Stephens_Salt

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_David_Thoreau

http://www.henrysalt.co.uk/into.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_disobedience

Although Gandhi couldn't always stop violence, i must say that i liked his principles, which is my opinion.

During the height of the British Empire there were a lot of social reformers that didn't agree with our position in India, and this led to an alliance between those interested and had sympathy for Indian mysticism, and a great interest in the Hindu religion, and those social reformers that thought that having an empire in India was wrong!

Strangely enough, much that helped Gandhi, was discussed in the Vegetarian restaurants of London in the 1880's, and into this mix came the Fabian Society that i will discuss next, however there were other "Societies".

Before we go on, lets look at the date that The Vegetarian Federal Union was established, being 1st October 1889 in London:-

http://www.ivu.org/history/vfu/constitution.html

A quick check on Brady's starlight will tell you that the Sun rose at 06:05:44am in London, within the four minute astrologers margin, you will find Sirius culminating, straight up from South, on the M.C. or middle of the sky!

Now the philosophy of the Fabian Society was similiar to Gandhi, not advocating big battles, but tactics of harassment and attrition, notable tactics of the Roman General Quintus FABIUS Maximus, that the Fabian Society is named after!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fabian_Society

Who amoung the early stars of the Fabian Society had an interest in Sun Worship, astrology and the myths and legends of ancient cults and wrote books on the subject in relation to Christian beliefs showing what was common to all religions....he was also a vegetarian?

I was thinking of Edward Carpenter, who had been a guest speaker for The Theosophical Society on his subject of Sun Worship:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Carpenter

http://www.edwardcarpenter.net/ecpcc3.htm

http://www.edwardcarpenter.net/ecpcc2.htm

From his book "Pagan and Christian Creeds", although i would have to disagree with him with his comments that many pagan gods were born on or near Christmas Day.

This is confusing as many pagan gods were allegedly born near the end of the year, however in many countries in ancient times, the year ended in the Summer, therefore the Osiris myth and birth is regarded to be in the Summer, a few days before the end of the year!

It was the Emperor Aurelian that changed Osiris dates to the end of the Julian Year because of conflict over religion in the vast Roman Empire, even though his religion was the Sun God Sol Invictus.

It will be noted that Edward Carpenter was involved with The Independent Labour Party's first conference in Bradford, Yorkshire, U.K., 53*N47', 01*W45', on 14th January 1893.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independent_Labour_Party

http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/TUcarpenter.htm

His interest in Sun Cults may have been incorperated in the date, as at location, the Sun set at 16:08:39pm, while Alnilam, Belt of Orion, star of Osiris was rising along the horizon in the East, by paran, astronomers measure!

I have no Idea of George Bernard Shaw's philosophy regarding religious beliefs, however it has to be noted that there were two important women in his life that had strange beliefs.

Annie Horniman helped him a great deal in his career, and later become a member of The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Horniman

Florence Farr had been a mistress of George Bernard Shaw, and she too had been a member of The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

Sorry mistake on last link, should be:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence_Farr

Annie Besant was a member of The Fabian Society, become President of The Theosophical Society, and was influencial in Co-Freemasonry.

Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Besant

Many Theosophist's were vegetarian, so would meet in vegetarian restaurants in the 1880's in London, so would meet with Gandhi.

This link mentions Gandhi being introduced to Madame Blavatsky and Annie Besant.....i wonder if Gandhi's life would have been different if he hadn't been a vegetarian?

http://www.ivu.org/news/evu/other/gandhi1.html

Co-Freemasonry is similiar to The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, as they have interest in magical rituals, please scroll down to "ceremonial and Inner Energies on Co-freemasonry link:-

Generally if secret society astrology is used i have found it only marked at the start or end of the day with Alnilam or Sirius, the three starts of day being sunrise, sunset or midnight, and it is marked on one of the four angles.

The foundation act of The Theosophical Society is known by a hand written letter, shown on link:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theosophical_Society

The letter is shown on this link:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:st-1ata.jpg

Please use mouse to click anywhere on hand written page to make larger, it may take a few goes.

The date is Wednesday Evening 8th September 1875 in New York.

Therefore i would be looking at sunset on this date, which happened at 18:16:48pm, and by using Starlight we find Alnilam, Belt of Orion exactly on the Nadir within the four minute margin!

I'm Not knocking but explaining, and it is interesting that many of the same alignments crop up in the emerging independence parties In India.

Mark Mason Hall that housed the Isis-Urania Temple of the Golden Dawn no longer exists, but it was in Great Queens Street, in the same street as Freemasons Hall in London.

Don't confuse with the other Mark Mason Hall in St. James Street that still exists featured below:-

www.markmasonshall.com/

The Golden Dawn Temple was chartered by Freemasons Hall on 1st March 1888, as shown below:-

http://www.llewellyn.com/encyclopedia/article/35

Now this link above doesn't work properly, so where it says "view cached copy of page from google", please click on that!

On 1st March 1888 in London the Sun rose at 06:50:25am, while Alnilam, Belt of Orion, star of Osiris was within four minutes of being exactly aligned to the Nadir, straight down from North on any astronomy programme.

The Theosophists chose sunset, the Golden Dawn chose sunrise, other than that the alignment is the same!

Lets look at Allan Octavian Hume, link below:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allan_Octavian_Hume

He was one of the founders of the Indian National Congress, please scroll down link to "Theosophy", being a free thinker about religion and had some dealings with The Theosophical Society.

The first session of the Indian National Congress was held in Bombay/Mumbai from 28th-31st December 1885.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_National_Congress

The middle two dates are of interest at the modern start of the day, being midnight on 29th and 30th Dec. 1885.

At midnight on 29th Dec. 1885, Alnilam, Belt of Orion is culminating, straight up from South within 2 mins 59 secs. well within the astrologers four minute margin in Mumbai.

At midnight on 30th Dec 1885 at location Alnilam culminates on M.C. within 56 secs.

Obviously not all in India followed Hinduism, therefore there would be Muslim break-away independence movements that will be discussed in the next thread section.

When the Muslim League was started in Dhaka, Bengal, which is now Bangladesh, (23*N43'23", 90*E24'31"), it seems that the midnight day marker was used again, using 30th December 1906.

The Muslim League eventually gained independence for Pakistan and after a war Bangladesh, please note i'm making observations not judgements!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_League

At the location of Dhaka, Bengal/Bangladesh at the midnight day marker on 30th December 1906, Sirius was culminating in the centre of the sky, straight up from South on an astronomy programme or Starlight, within the four minute astrologers margin!

Bangladesh is most interesting in this study of governments that use Sirius and Alnilam to align their country to astrology.

If you look to the right of link below you will get the date of independence declared, being 26th March 1971, and Victory day is celebrated on 16th December 1971.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bangladesh

The alignments featured below, are from the Capital, Dhaka

On Friday 26th March 1971 in Dhaka using the midnight day marker, we find Sirius setting along the horizon in the West, within the four minute astrologers margin!

Victory Day, being Thursday 16th December 1971 in Dhaka was a very special day in that location, for it is marked at midnight and the Egyptian day marker being sunrise!

At midnight on 16th Dec. 1971 Alnilam, Belt of Orion was culminating on the M.C. within the four minute astrologers margin.

At Sunrise being 06:37:04am we find Sirius setting along the horizon in the West, by Starlight, within the four minute margin!

Lets look at the Flag of Bangladesh that was adopted on 17th January 1972.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Bangladesh

On 17th January 1972, the Sun set at 17:29:39pm in the location of Dhaka, as the Sun set, in the location of Dhaka, Sirius was rising in the East along the horizon, within the four minute margin by Starlight!
