Legend had it that those without enough wealth, or whose friends refused to follow proper burial rites, were forced to wander the banks of the Acheron for one hundred years... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obol_(coin) Note: The word "obolos", also "obelos" or "odelos" in other dialects, means a long thin metal nail or rod, such as a spit. In other words "obelisk"... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obelisk Therefore, an Obelisk could be a symbol of a 'price to be paid' or 'sacrifice'. :unclemikey-84: Ahem... The Hebrew letter VAV means nail or [color=red][b]HOOK[/b][/color]. A VAV looks like the masonic square the person in the center is holding... :unclemikey-317: Children placed on top of a VAV are in danger of being "hooked"... :unclemikey-305: :unclemikey-306: Vav is used in the Hebrew language as the conjunction "and", which ties well with its other meanings "Hook or Nail" as the "link" between the "above" and the "below"... (great work). In order to make the "Sand" vibrate into the proper frequency... you need the right "Hook". St. Mary, Canada...

Attic funerary vases of the 5th and 4th centuries BC. are often decorated with scenes of the dead boarding Charonís boat. On the earlier such vases, he looks like a rough, unkempt Athenian seaman dressed in reddish-brown, holding his ferryman's pole in his right hand and using his left hand to receive the deceased. [color=orange]Hermes[/color] sometimes stands by in his role as [color=orange]psychopomp[/color] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charon_(mythology) Psychopomps: from the Greek word psuchopompos, literally meaning the "guide of souls") are creatures, spirits, angels, or deities in many religions whose responsibility is to escort newly deceased souls to the afterlife. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychopomp :RaphaelC: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QifHa0wKVe4[/youtube] [/quote]
