"It is certain that onomatology, or the science of names, forms a very interesting part of the investigations of the higher Masonry, and it is only in this way that any connection can be created between the two sciences". (Encyclopedia of Freemasonry)
The "Stone of Destiny" hit the headlines last week, the report containing some material worth further investigation.
That's the Stone which was repatriated from England's Westminster Abbey on Christmas Day 1950 by a brazen gang of law students, to then re-appear at the alter within Scotland's Arbroath Abbey some 108 days later. It's the same stone some claim is Jacob's Pillow Stone. Others would say it's a Dr. Jekyll - a Jekyll and Hyde - a snide - a fake passed off to the English way back.
Friday's BBC News tells of reporter, Arthur Binnie, passing away, at the age of 89. Arthur's claim to fame, his "big scoop" which he did very well from financially, was to be the first reporter on the scene at Arbroath on the 101st day of the year, April 11th 1950, after receiving an (presumably) anonymous telephone call at his desk in the Arbroath Herald office. All he was told was that if he went to the Abbey, "he might find something of interest". Arthur grabbed a camera and cycled so hard en-route, the chain came off his bike. Yes, cycled, it was almost 66 years ago.
When Arthur arrived at the doors, the "uniformed custodian" led him "silently" to the high alter. Arthur, well aware of the missing stone, saw a Saltire draped over a stonemason's barrow. Arthur didn't need to employ rocket science to deduce what exactly it was, thus when the custodian pulled back a corner of the flag, "there it was....The Stone of Destiny". Arthur's oily hands received an envelope from the custodian containing a message from the four students which he took back to the office along with some snaps he had taken of the scene. Arthur was sure it was the real McCoy.
"Later he learned there'd been a mix up. A local councillor who'd been supposed to alert journalists had decided to let the police know first but the officer in charge in Arbroath that day took a while to establish the story wasn't a hoax.
Arthur Binnie had the discovery of the Stone of Destiny to himself.
The news went worldwide. " -Global...... indeed.
I enjoy greatly James Shelby Downard's KK/33, regarding the masonic fingerprints all over the JFK assassination, the quote up top is from there. Wikipedia carries a text, abbreviated: a fuller, yet alas not complete version is here
Let's look at Arthur (wiki):
Arthur is a common masculine given name. Its etymology is disputed, but its popularity derives from its being the name of the legendary hero King Arthur.
Binnie : "Surnames regarded as septs (sub-branch) of the MacBain/MacBean clan include Bain, Bean, Beattie, Binnie, Macbeath, Macbeth, Macbheath, Macilvain and MacVean." Rampant Scotland
I would recommend the reader peruses the KK/33 text, although it is somewhat hard going. Downard within connects the dots :
Before pointing to the mystical associations between the murder of the president and Shakespeare's tragedy of Macbeth I wish to call attention to the appearance of the witches in Act I, Scene 1 and to the line in which they chant "Fair is foul, and foul is fair". This is reminiscent of Hermetic Art (alchemy) as well as the "individuation" or "shaping" of an integrated personality in the psychology of C. G. Jung in which the "archetype of unity" (self-head, auto-cephalous), the Yetzer Ha-Ra and Yetzer ha Tov of the Jews, and the "Mingling of All with All" is manifested.
