Hello cladking,
Thank you. As for the tree of life being a Sycamore fig (symbolically), I noted some examples in my earlier and your fountain of youth example is another. They also supposedly covered their nakedness with fig leaves. These examples and the similarity of the fig fruit with the pituitary gland brought me to that conclusion. Hopefully a longer life leads from more knowledge to wisdom, something of a quest I hope I am on. Your dissolving stone makes me think of the Alchemist “philosopher stone”, the chemical marriage. The stone in the cup, I remember in my research that the philosopher’s stone was sometimes described as a red liquid. This possibly leads back to the pituitary gland and its reddish hue I mentioned earlier.
I agree about your comments about the confusion of languages and how geometry and math can transcend this to an extent. I’ll cite one example I have written about and that is the Egyptian monument called an obelisk. That is the Greek name for it which translates as “roasting spit.” This is a far cry as to what it meant to the ancient Egyptians. Their name for it was “Tekhenu”, which translates as; “to rise up in brilliance”. It represented a frozen shaft of light with the pyramidion on top (the Benben stone) symbolizing the Egyptian version of the Greek phoenix, the immortal bird of rebirth and resurrection. An interesting connection I find here is the description of the baptism of Jesus in the Bible. As he is in the water being baptized a shaft of light comes down on him which has on top of it the Holy Spirit represented in the form of a bird. This certainly seems to share the same symbolism, that and the fact that in Rome the Roman Catholic Church went to enormous expense to “resurrect” Egyptian “obelisk” throughout the city in front of their Basilica’s, including in the middle of St Peter’s square facing the Vatican. Curious.

Blessings, don
