Zam zam - well . . .

July 10, 2002 09:05PM
Hi Milo

I was stunned when you introduced the concept of the correlation between the Kaaba and Kubrick's name !
Gobsmacked .

I have no idea as to the real significance of the black stone in the Kaaba - I hop I can look this up and get some more information .
The concept of a stone from a higher source and evolution of the human psyche - interesting .

I went to Mecca for the first time last year on pilgrimage - a very interesting event .

I feel as though I have changed since then - and I wonder if it is just psychological and a result of the whole business of comuning with 2 million fellow pilgrims and the excitement of the event , or whether there is some significance of the area (black stone , or some ley-line sort of energy in the place ).

Interestingly , there is a well next to the Kaaba (the well of Zam zam ) which accoridnt to tradition sprung up when Hegar was looking for water for Ishmael .
This well has been providing water continuously since then - despite the fact that millions of people visit the area every year (now) and each takes with them several litres home - not to mention the quantities that are used whilst they are there .

But I digress . . .
