The Story of the Masks
The Story of the Masks - HTML Version
|Bak'was - Wild Man Mask |
Ba„was is the Wild Man of the Woods, literal translation "man of the ground embodiment". He is small in size and is the Chief of ghosts or spirits, the spiritual embodiment of everything in the forest. He has a green hairy body and skeletal face with prominent cheekbones and a hooked nose that curves to touch his upper lip. He lives in the country of ghosts and is the Chief of Woodsmen and keeper of drowned souls. It is unusual to see a Ba„was but be careful if you do because it is said that he will entice you into his world by offering you food. Ba„was especially likes to find warriors and hunters and capture them by luring them to eat his cursed food. The food looks appetizing like smoked salmon or berries but is poisoned and when a starving hunter comes along and eats it, he will become one of the Ba„was spirits. Ba„was eats slugs and snails, but his favourite food is cockles, found only in our area, and dug from the sand on the beach. Generally he is shy and afraid of humans.
Sisiyut‡ - Sea Serpent
The Sisiyut‡ is a double-headed serpent and one of the most powerful figures in Kwakwaka'wakw tradition. The Sisiyut‡ has a frightening snake-like body with two serpent heads that extend in opposite directions from the humanoid face in the centre.
A Sisiyut‡ has powerful abilities of transformation and can change into a salmon or even a canoe. To touch or to see the dangerous Sisiyut‡ means certain death. However, for some, particularly warriors, Sisiyut‡ brings supernatural power.
Da‡alagam‡ - Laugher Mask
During the At‡a„im, the dancer laughs and recreates the actions of laughing, the other dance to depict a laugher is called the laughing dance. When it is shown, the dancer comes out and begins to laugh until the whole audience is infected and they all are laughing.
A human-like face mask represents a male wearing a cedar bark head ring. The eyebrows are heavy and black; the mouth is carved with the lips pulled back and the teeth showing as though the mask is laughing. The ground of this particular mask is left natural (or unpainted) unlike those depicted in the At‡a„im or Dance of the Forest Spirits.

Symbolic Art from Rare and Esoteric Manuscripts
From Kircher’s Magnes sive de Arte Magnetica Opus Tripartitum
|The Orphic Egg|
From Bryant's An Analysis of Ancient Mythology
The ancient symbol of the Orphic Mysteries was the serpent-entwined egg, which signified Cosmos as encircled by the fiery Creative Spirit. The egg also represents the soul of the philosopher; the serpent, the Mysteries. At the time of initiation the shell is broken and man emerges from the embryonic state of physical existence wherein he had remained through the fetal period of philosophic regeneration.
This diagram illustrates a curious experiment in plant magnetism reproduced with several other experiments in Athanasius Kircher’s rare volume on magnetism.Several plants were sacred to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Hindus because of the peculiar effect which the sun exerted over them. As it is difficult for man to look upon the face of the sun without being blinded by the light, those plants which turned and deliberately faced the solar orb were considered typical of very highly advanced souls. Since the sun was regarded as the personification of the Supreme Deity, those forms of life over which it exercised marked influence were venerated as being sacred to Divinity. The sunflower, because of its plainly perceptible affinity for the sun, was given high rank among sacred plants.
Within these pages the visitor will find a wealth of symbolic art compiled from the many rare and esoteric manuscripts and books that are part of the PRS Library. Many of these diagrams were used by Manly P. Hall to illustrate The Secret Teachings of All Ages.

|The 72 Names of God|
From Kircher’s OEdipus AEgyptiacus
This rare cut shows the name of God in seventy-two languages inscribed upon the petals of a symbolic sunflower. Above the circle are the seventy-two powers of God according to the Hebrew Kabbalah. Below are two trees, that on the left bearing the symbols of the planets and that on the right the signs of the zodiac and the names of the tribes of Israel. The esoteric doctrines of the Kabbalah are in alignment with the secret teachings of all the schools of philosophy, but the method by which its secrets are revealed to the wise and concealed from the ignorant is most unusual.

The Message from Water - Die Botschaft des Wassers
Dr. Masaru Emoto is best known for his controversial claim that if human thoughts are directed at water images of the resulting water crystals will be beautiful or ugly depending upon whether the thoughts were positive or negative. Emoto claims this can be achieved through prayer, music or by attaching written words to a container of water.

Messages from Masaru Emoto
|"Water is the reflection of your heart and soul". Based on this information, it feels like the human population is currently being questioned about their way of living so far. Are modern day people living a life on a daily basis that is full of ‘Love and Thanks’ energy? The answer is obvious: no. On the contrary, we are all immersed in fear and resentment and living a life that is full of gluttony, over consumption and worries.|
If so, then the water will reflect that as well. If we do not come together and lead a life full of ‘Love and Thanks’ energy, the water will retaliate furthermore and create water related havoc on this planet and may attack your city next.

I impressed by the exquisite beauty of a water crystal from Lourdes. In contrast, there's a crystal taken from water exposed to Heavy Metal Music. Finally water from a lake at Fujiwara Dam before offering a prayer, and then, amazingly, after prayers by a Buddhist monk.

Masaru Emoto verbindet wie kein anderer Forscher Wissenschaft und Spiritualität. Mit seinen mystischen Bildern beweist der Arzt und Visionär aus Tokio nichts geringeres als die Existenz einer unsichtbaren, geistigen Welt.
|"Die materielle Kultur des Menschen hat ihre Grenzen erreicht", sagt Emoto nach zwölfjähriger Forschungsarbeit. In zehntausenden Versuchen hat er herausgefunden, dass Wasser nicht nur gute und schlechte Informationen, Musik und Worte, sondern auch Gefühle und Bewusstsein speichert.|
