Apollo, then, was one of the ‘Sons of the Sun,’ so many of whom came to be deified by mortals as ‘small-g gods.’ In another article on ‘Apollo’s Legacy,’ (http://www.solarancestor.com/apollos-legacy.html) it was related how Abaris travelled to meet Pythagoras, in the 6th century BC, “carrying Apollo in his heart.” Today religious people likewise speak of carrying the Buddha or Christ in their heart.
How do we understand the ‘Intelligible World,’ as the Ancient Greeks called it? This realm is invisible and intangible to our normal senses but there are those who have developed higher faculties, called extra-sensory, notably the receptor in the pineal gland, enabling perception of the Intelligible world. Spiritualists call it the astral plane, while quantum theoretical physicists refer to other dimensions. Consider the notion raised in the previous blog that our third dimension may actually be a hologram. Reflect on the concept of the next dimension being the true actuality, while ours is just a mirror of it. Mind comes before matter. Our world is the creation of that which is conceived in a higher reality. As above, so below.
