Moreover, that the swan, as a primary symbol of cosmological ideals, was seen to be associated with cyclic time among these earliest communities (as it is in Vedic tradition), the reason the book is titled The Cygnus Key.
Very interested in the cyclic time associations of Cygnus, even the Vedic.
Ancients seemed quite attached to their calendars and the stars which made them accurate!
I have come to a line of thought suggesting that the Egyptian obsession with the bird wings and draped serpents on either side of a sphere (?planet?) --- displayed over every temple door in Egypt --- comes from the depictions of the 5th house of the Duat, the House of Sokar, where Sokar cannot enter.
The glyph is a pyramid with the head of Isis at the apex.
There is a post here with some very nice images in it, I'll look for that.
Within is the long serpent with 4 legs, and wings. (One at the hip and one at the shoulder?)
Another image shows three serpents moving together.
There was a FB image, which brought me an idea of the meaning, and that will be difficult to place here, as it is not a common ideation on this planet, at this time.
But considered in a formative vision of life in the Universe, it makes a very integral kind of sense, and a reason for calling one helm, The Helm of Ordered Chaos.
There is a (?) helm, no place for eyes or mouth, it is solid. It is centered in another layer above the Isis topped image. It may be a helm, it has what seem to be bars extending from two opposing sides. It features two birds.
Cygnus, Great Rift, center of creation ... ? ...which the serpent carried on it's back ... lots in the concepts!
Mind is the rider.
