THE EYE OF SILOAM AND THE INTERSTATE COMMERCE
The following excerpt is from
The Secret Architecture of Our Nation's Capital: The Masons and the Building of
by David Ovason (pp 297 & 492).
Like most of the sculptural programs in Washington, D.C., these strange images are derived from classical sources. My impression is that many of the classical motifs and ideas which find expression on the exterior of the Federal Triangle Building may be traced back to the illustrations in a single scholarly work which is still in the Library of Congress. This is a German lexicon of classical mythology by the classical scholar Roscher. Well illustrated with excellent wood engravings, it was certainly available to the architects and sculptors of Washington, D.C., during the building of the triangle."
For example, in one volume of this work appears a picture of the fish-tailed horse carrying a woman who holds two torches (above). This could easily be the source for Edward McCartan's fish-tailed horse on the Interstate Commerce Commission Building overlooking Constitution Avenue (figure 35). The main difference is that Edward McCartan's female is nude, and since she is designed to represent water, could not wisely be shown carrying torches, the attribute of fire. The central figure of Columbia (by Edgar Walter) on the Departmental Auditorium does hold a torch, however. This symbolizes the light of knowledge.
Figure 35. Naked woman with a sea horse, surrounded by dolphins - sculpted by Edward McCartan in 1935for the Interstate Commerce Commission Building on Constitution Avenue. The detail is intended to represent the water signs of the zodiac - Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
The constellation Cetus destroyed the ancient idea that all the stars were laid out in a complete and rational story as if the stars were placed by a Master Mason/Architect. The ancient Mesopotamians denied Tiamet because the stars of the Crooked Serpent could not be made rational. The Greek destroyed Typhon and the Biblical Behemoth that was Cetus. Many modern researchers who come to this position resolve to accept that indiscernible truth that the universe was born out of Chaos, or the Sea of the Abyss. But, those few souls who understand that a True Father does not reveal secrets to his Son. Rather, the True Father reveals the potential for discovery with unending possibilities. Love for the Father in Heaven cannot be dictated without the loss of Free Will. And Love without Free Will is the darkness of Hades where Persephone wails of her abduction. Thus, the EyeOfSiloam was conceived, not as a sequence of stars connected like a child's puzzle, but as a process which ends in the visualization of Free Will by free intent to observe the I AM THAT I AM. When a man-child can witness these necessary actions for self creation, that man-child has duplicated the roll of the Father in Heaven. It is for this very purpose that the phallus symbol of George Washington stands on the Mall of Righteousness in the District of Columbia pointed directly at the stars of the Heavenly Field. Spica, by virtue of the intent for righteousness, is the metaphorical aim of the monument just as the phallus of Geb desired to have Heaven on Earth. Satisfaction is not the destiny. Satisfaction is The Key.
In the beginning God
created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void;
and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
In the House of Gemini, bounded by Love and Wisdom, are Light and Reason,
while the Rational Warrior and the First Intent align with a Bovine and two men saving a She Goat and her kids.
The Shadow of Earth is in the face of the Sage in whose sign vision is ensured.
She sees. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
At first there was a tempestuous beast and darkness was on the deep.
She laid with the beast on the shore of the Abyss, as God created the heaven and the earth.
Who was the maiden that brought for a New World Order when the Chief of the Ways of God spoke?
She was the Virgin Mother of All that waited for the ascension of the Righteous Wise Man.
She was the Virgin Mother of Righteous Intent whose time was immortalized in the District of Columbia.
First Comes the Weeping for the Loss of the Golden Age
The Consequence of Loss of Judgment is the Coming of Judgment Day
The Cosmic Journey must be started over from the beginning for the rebirth of the Light of Reason
In the Light of Reason the purpose filled life will restore the Land Before Time
Space and Time are dreams of love in the Land of Kingdom Come and
Masonic Tradition is the Temple of Solomon, which is the Temple in Cosmic Man.
His candle is in the handmaiden of Virgin Time.
She rides the Beast of the Sea on the shore of Hades,
waiting for the Righteous Man whom she will judge
as the Savior of a daughter of the Queen of Heaven.
Though Her Way is not Perfection, She is the Way of Righteousness
