"Both Hel and Niflhiem were consided to be cold ,dark and
dreary lands of shadows ,not places of punishment . NASTROND

VENOMOUS SNAKES ,SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN A PLACE OF AFTER-DEATH

Nidhogg serpent."  (compare with tomb images---BLOODY MASK OF
WAR HORSE ON CHEST,metal leaves(same/same coin scales,locked
doorway  overcome.
              And again ,Hel herself is a mix of  contrasts
, as is the Turin Shroud;   "THE GODDESS HEL,  1/2 black(or
rotting) and  1/2  flesh-colored ,is the daughter of Loki ..."/
          "In his female form ,he was  mother not only  to Hel
,but to Fenrir ,the wolf  ,the horse Sleipnir ,and the great
Midgard serpent (world rift system) coiled around the world."
 (In the 9th century text Muspilli,  a battle of the  world's
end is envisioned,  where   Fernir wolf  joins the side of
his friend ,the Antichrist to battle forces led by Elijah. As
I have  called it in the past ,the tomb coverings were a part
of a photographic process(light-source,subject, photo-plate,
darkness to encase the works thereof;of all this it is easily
done  to seperate one as Christ and the other as Anti(reflective

             "SOON AFTER THE (invention)  birth of Purgatory
(in the 13th Century) ,(MARY) was more frequently portrayed

reversal here,Christ ,the victom of extreme violence , is  ,after
a time seen as the wrathful one ,as at were nearly , a new
Bezulbub/Satan.....THE ENEMY OF MAN  ,restrained by a  "knowing"
,divine mother.   "In nativity scenes ,she is the mother of
new life, but as the Mater Dolorsa ,she is the pitying death
goddess."     "...no-intellectual ,midievil people -----inclined
toward casual dualism.The Church undertook to rout it out by
use of the carrot and the stick.The stick was the  the so-called
Albigensian Crusade against hersy ,and the ferocious Inquisition

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.)INDEED,THIS
IS SAID TO BE JUST WHAT THE ANTICHRIST IS SAID TO FINALLY DO,
create a new scacrifice for sin   ,with himself(herself)as the
intersesor for sin;indeed it has been widely taught from the
days of Calvin  ,that The Pope is the Antichrist ,as head of
an evil empire that in many ways is Anti-christian(his  standang
as savior supplanted).
          In the  chapter  "Mystery Plays" , much is made of
the stage prop,  THE HELL -MOUTH."    It is also nated that
the onlt plays allowed prior to the Days of Shakeprere(in England
at  least) redemtion plays were of the only type allowed to
be staged.
                 "Carpenters would make a beast's head out of
wood .papier-mache,fabric ,glitter ,and whatever else they needed
,and set it over a trapdoor."(compare to the modern clown-car
of the 3-ring circus.Dozens of sinners/clowns....,go to or escape
from  hell/ the vackseat.     "A discription of a pageant wagon
made for a parade in 15th -century Bourges.IT WAS PROCEEDED
BY A GROUP OF CAPERING DEVILS ,DARTING IN AND OUT OF THE  CROUD."
       WHY AM I EVEN COVERING THIS TOPIC?   Plainly said , The
Turin Shroud is both Heaven And Hell manifest and laid naked;
souls  are battlefield where varied forces are arrayed. In the
case of the Negative Imagry,dating back to 1898,the central
image thereof , over the chest of Jesus , is the  "hell-mouth"
of war-mount terror armor;  a War-horse mask of demonic visage
, the rein-guides being ,seemingly, the upper and lower  jaws
thereof; indeed...,to get to the  point , duality/ GOOD AND
EVIL,  LIGHT AND DARK,  VIOLENCE AND TERROR ,imposing itself
to the  very grave, not willing to  leave well enough alone
; Satan in  all  his  power , out to  mock a DEADLY ENEMY;.ENOUGH
SAID. HEAVEN AND HEL, PULSAR AND BLACK-HOLE ...ALL ARE GOD'S./
 Indeed, as said earlier, a mix  of wills and hardware,come
together  to birth a new faith and a photo of it's head,and
thereby ,the forces subdued....the price paid.
             page119 /  "The Fall of Lucifer thus began the
dramatic action. Lucifer ,glitteringly clad ,dares to sit on
God's throne and brag , A GESTURE GREETED  WITH GASPS OF HORROR
OR OF GLEE FROM THE OTHER ANGELS ,ACCORDING TO THEIR POLITICAL
STANCE.       but then,   comes the   fall."
                   "Dewes!   All go down!"
              "...stage trickery and slight of hand,as the
Antichrist performs his false miricles."(Note,  Jim Jones went
through the motions of healings and raising the dead).
           Might I add that many, if  not most demon ,devil imagry
of Midaevil Europe show lower  "body-faces"...,heads , as in
film Total Recall....,eating sinners.Indeed, in such art , the
main activity of Hell is to Feed Satan Souls...and ,seemingly
,the excreting of the devoured to  oblivion.Some paintings seem
to be  partually revelation...,in not just the War Mask  over
stomach....,but also of a Spotted Devil(destorted imagry of
Yeshua...via coinage over-laying his flesh)

, unrisen in  the Hell of a stone tomb  :   "Satan puts on swift
wings and soars toward the thrice  threefold gates of Hell ,3

        "Break -away Protestant sects always included  "HE
DECENDED INTO HELL,in their creeds ,but this seems to to have
been more  from tradition than conviction(.....)...Methodist

all this talk of Hell and demons may be a natural sort of cover
story for an on-going human/alien interaction(abductions)that
from the  very beinging has lingered  near the  fringes of
our psyce and daily doings. (Much as cows ,living near an  airprt
must somehow rationize their existance;even to the point of
acepting their ear-tags as a small price  for all the  wonderful
feed.)
        Swedenborg /  page 211   "The worst hells are those
of the west ,especially the northwest ; in them are Roman
Catholics  "who wished to be worshipped as  gods and who
consquently  burned with hatred and revenge against all who
refused to acknowledge their power  over the  souls of men
and over  Heaven." 
           "Emerson tells us that Napoleon ,who enjoyed debate
,argued against the existance of Hell,...experient ,since  so
many  were convinced it was his natural home."

     IN CLOSING , a few lines  from  "The Age of Freud."
          "The Shadow was  what he (Jung)  called the despair
resulting from repression of the unconscious."   "Questions
od predestination vs. free will are peripheral  to an age
preoccupied with the struggle of the primitive Id  ,with  the
Ego and Superego."        As I've said , much of my study is
focused on the Colective-mind of varied societies, as expresed
from time to time by the most  noted  authors;   revelations
via a sort of  remote-viewing....and given FORM in the guise
of a "Muse"....or a     "Vision".
       (from a statement of  the Unitarian/ Universalists) page
238    "The doctrine of an eternal hell ,we unqualifiedly reject
,as the foulest inputation upon the character of God possible
to be concieved  ,..."
