Encircling the Mind

I made a fairly mind-numbing discovery while writing my article about children and mind-control. Referencing wikipedia, the word pedia struck me. Greek is one of the languages I speak, thus I began thinking what the heck does “wiki” mean and what does it have to do with children (παιδεία)? {*1} Researching the origins of wiki proved trivial, but the word obviously stems from/is a play on encyclopedia.

Online, the first result Google sent me to said that “ped,” “pedi” and even “pedia” children] are related to the foot. “No. That’s a lie,” I thought, knowing full-well that “pod” or “podi” (ποδι) would be the Greek prefix/stem for “foot” [as in podiatrist or cephalopod] and that the former relates primarily to children [as in "pediatric" or "pedarist"]. Tracing the etymology further, yielded the following:

  • Wikipedia: The word ‘encyclopedia’ comes from the Classical Greek “ἐγκύκλιος παιδεία” (pronounced “enkyklios paideia”), literally, a “[well-]rounded education”, meaning “general knowledge.”
  • Merriam-Webster: Medieval Latin encyclopaedia course of general education, from Greek enkyklios + paideia education, child rearing, from paid-, pais child.
  • history.com: (derived from Gr. enkyklios paideia, “in a circle of instruction”), term originally signifying instruction in all branches of knowledge, or a comprehensive education in a specific subject. {*2}

Nonsense! The Online Etymological Dictionary was slightly more truthful:

1531 “course of construction,” thought to be a false reading by L. authors of Gk. enkyklios paideia taken as “general education,” but lit. “training in a circle,” the essentials of a liberal education, from enkyklios “circular,” also “general” (from en- “in” + kyklos “circle”) + paideia “education, child-rearing,” from pais (gen. paidos) “child” (see pedo-).

I even came across one source going so far as to claim that enkyklios refers to a circle, hence a “circle of children,” implying that in Ancient Greece, children were taught whilst sitting in a circle. “More goddamn lies!” Enkyklios (ἐγκύκλιος) implies something entirely different. It means to encircle, otherwise the word would be cyclopedia, which it is not. {*3} So there you have it. Hidden right under our nose for well over a century: to encircle children. To encircle [the minds] of children.

Technically: περικυκλώνω is the transitive verb which means to encircle. However, after the “encirclement” has taken place, περικυκλώς refers to the circle and area outside it, while ἐγκύκλιος refers to the area “inside the circle.” Alternately, enkyklios could also be defined as “circular,” which taking the circuitous path ultimately connotes “not being forthright or direct in language.”

What is an encyclopedia’s purpose: to fill our heads with lies and build a mental prison to confine/limit us. Thus, it should be of little surprise to find the origins of the printed encyclopedias go back to the Scottish side of the United Kingdom, refuge of the Knights Templar; birthplace of the Scottish Rite and British Zionism. A friend upon hearing my discovery recalled how he did a book report as a child and said, “Mom, did you know that Dinosaurs died and created the oil we use today?” His mother, of a different generation, so still holding on to some common sense replied, “Yea, that book may say so, but it just doesn’t sound right to me.” {*4}

the wall

Oh, how far back the limitations placed on mankind must go. I recall a segment in Len Horowitz’s DNA: Pirates of the Sacred Spiral where he suggested that Webster’s reference dictionary, just like the Bible, contains several “codes.” One example provided was tracing the word “human.” Per Merriam-Webster:

human Middle English humain, from Anglo-French, from Latin humanus; akin to Latin homo human being — more at homage

1: of, relating to, or characteristic of humans 2: consisting of humans 3 a: having human form or attributes b: susceptible to or representative of the sympathies and frailties of human nature

Frailties? OK! Tracing further back to homage, we get:

homage Middle English, from Anglo-French homage, omage, from home man, vassal, from Latin homin-, homo human being; akin to Old English guma human being, Latin humus earth — more at humble

1 a: a feudal ceremony by which a man acknowledges himself the vassal of a lord b: the relationship between a feudal lord and his vassal c: an act done or payment made in meeting the obligations of vassalage 2 a: expression of high regard: respect — often used with pay b: something that shows respect or attests to the worth or influence of another: tribute

Feudal? Influence of “another?” Isn’t that exactly what the sycophant church (of the false god) tells us, “to be humble.” So, following the bouncing ball:

humble 1: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive 2: reflecting, expressing, or offered in a spirit of deference or submission 3 a: ranking low in a hierarchy or scale: insignificant, unpretentious b: not costly or luxurious

Submission? Insignificant? So, is this what we humans allow ourselves to be defined by? Looking up another, you get “different or distinct from the one first considered.” Isn’t that what the ruling elites of this planet consider themselves? Which takes us back to Charles Fort. Which takes us back to They Live.

Well, I got news for you “lords” and “masters.” I will bow to no “lord” [biblical or titled], nor acknowledge anyone outside of my true creator as superior to myself. Because, I am an infinite being of creativity; a skill that you can neither buy or possess. My capacity for love is beyond your comprehension and I will no longer be ruled by fear. I am a creator and destroyer of worlds. I can now see past your lies and am starting to get but a glimpse of my infinite potential. {*5}

You lords are all now free to go fuck yourselves. Good night!

*1: My friend Anesti surmised wikipedia as “truth by consensus” [aka truth by majority]. Well, we all know how false such truths can tend to be. An example I like to give those who are still hard pressed to understand why the consensus is not necessarily truth:

“Suppose a girl and a guy in your school go on a date, and the “date” does not go so well. The next day, he comes back and tells everyone who’ll listen that they had sex. She comes back and tells a few of her close friends that the date was awful and nothing happened. The “truth” [by consensus] therefore, is that she had sex with him.”

Interestingly, while researching wiki, I found this quote:

It has been claimed by some that the ideas that led to the Wiki concept have their origins (see: WikiWikiOrigin) in the ZOG database system effort, first materialized at Carnegie-Mellon University in 1972.

Would that be ZOG as in “Zionist Occupational Government?” What??? [LB]

*2: History.com is owned by the Hearst Corporation, the owners of the laughable History Channel, and also, Propagada Mechanics. If you excpect anything more than a mere iota of truth from these purveyors of “yellow journalism,” well … how can I put it kindly … “you are an idiot.” [LB]

*3: Aside: Cyclos [alternately, Κyklos, i.e., κύκλος] is also the true origin of another phrase that I had once been unable to make sense of: Ku Klux Klan. Proper Greek pronunciation yields Kyklos Klan. The Circle Klan. So, yes, all those “crazy black people” that were once telling each other to boycott the Circle K convenience stores, were actually in the right. [LB]

*4: His mother was completely correct. The Encyclopedia Brittanica was completely wrong. Yet, how many people running around today believe all that scientifically discreditable nonsense [e.g., Dinosaur's remains creating oil and "fossil fuels", solid earth and magma, "pangea," Darwin's untenable theorems]? Truth by consensus? Woes me. Woes us! [LB]

*5: Uncanny timing? This is my 77th blog entry and I presently have 23 drafts in my queue. Anyone well-versed in numerology or the tarot please feel free to comment on the significance. Oh, and “creator and destroyer” is not mere mental fancy, Nikolai Tesla’s physics arrived at the same conclusion. [LB]

  1. LaRouche on Wikipedia, pg 41

    LaRouch in this piece relates ‘encyclopedia’ as dogmatized knowledge, ie once its canonized all the other that went before gets erased, sanitized.

    Kindergarten is garden of children, ie how to grow soldiers

    Love your blog, nice really nice.

  2. YES! Nice one Celt!

    I have been feeling like this the past day and today! No more Archetypes to bow down too, no more mind games! I am with you all the way my friend!

    I had my doubts on Wiki and was just using it because it was there…guess I know better now it’s more solidly confirmed! Great work detective!!

    I started a new little motto for myself concerning “awareness and love”…

    Be well my friend and thank you for the info!

  3. I am a 25 year employee of Circle K. Just to let you know, the history of Circle K is that the company was founded in the early 1950’s in El Paso, Texas with three stores. The owner’s wife was named Kay, and the stores were originally called Kay’s Food Stores. As the company expanded, they adopted the “Circle K” logo – Texas “ranch” sort of thing – and moved the headquarters to Phoenix, Arizona. The “K” then and now was in homage to the founder’s wife, Kay. The logo had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the KKK or any other organization.

  4. That story may well be true Circle K’er. From my perspective though, the “symbol,” even if chosen in historical ignorance (which is easy/excusable considering the point of this article), ultimately gets served.

    But, I feel the same way about hippies wearing an upside-down “tree of life” and expecting peace, or Christians who believe the “literal” Jesus story “honoring” him by wearing his torturer’s device.

    Michael/Eugene: thanks so much for taking the time to comment and your words. Btw: the Larouche write-up is definitely interesting.

  5. Hippies – upside-down tree of life;
    Christians – cross;

    and the pentecostal (dive-bombing ?!) Dove. No inherent peace in this symbol !

  6. >>*5: Uncanny timing? This is my 77th blog entry and I presently have 23 drafts

    Ah, the number “5”!! –
    The number five formed the first counting process from which all else came…

    As in: 77th Blog entry: 7+7 = 14, which breaks down to: 1+4=5
    23 drafts in queue: 2+3=5

    (Note: I got most of this info from Ellie Crystal regarding numbers and their meanings)

    >>recall a segment in Len Horowitz’s DNA: Pirates … the word human.

    The number Five is the symbol of human microcosm. The number of the human being. Human forms — the pentagon when arms and legs are out stretched. The pentagon is endless — sharing the symbolism of perfection and power of the circle. Also interesting here is that the Bible is intertwined with this implication, as the number 5 also has to do with religion. Five is representative of the Godhead – Central Creator of the four fours plus itself equaling five.

    >>Tracing further back to homage … akin to Old English guma human being

    Five is a circular number as it produces itself in its last digit when raised to its own power. The pentacle, like the circle, symbolizes whole, the quincunx (I had to look this word up – its means: when the aspect in astrology is formed between planets that are roughly 150 degrees apart) being the number of its center and the meeting point of heaven, earth, and the four cardinal points plus the center point.

    >>Well, I got news for you “lords” and “masters” … I will bow to no “lord”

    Lone Wolf – I think this really sums you up:

    The five pointed star depicts individuality and spiritual aspiration, and education when it points upward. Being that Five is representative of the Godhead, and you, Lone Wolf, will bow to no lord, this means (to me) that you also represent the other side of “Five” you are an individual. Spiritual aspiration, but non in the sense of the Godhead, but in the sense of your true creator as superior to yourself. You are in charge of you. An infinite being of creativity, one who perpetually learns and evolves…and bows down to no one.

    The five pointed star pointing downward represents witchcraft, and it is used in black magic. Noted: There is a very broad difference between witchcraft and black magic.

    There are many cultural references for the number Five:

    Alchemy: The five petaled flower and five pointed star symbolizing the quintessence

    Buddhist: belief the heart has four directions– the heart center makes five, symbolizing, universality

    Chinese: There are five elements. Five atmospheres; conditions; planets; sacred mountains; grains, colors, tastes, poisons; powerful charms; cardinal virtues; blessings; eternal ideas; relations to human kind.

    Christian: Five depicts human beings after the Fall in the Garden of Eden. There are five senses; five points to the cross; wounds of Christ; fishes feeding five thousand; and books of Moses.

    Egyptian: There are five crocodiles of the Nile.

    Graeco-Roman: Five is the nuptial number of love and union.. It is the number of Venus. Venus years are completed in groups of five. Apollo as god of light has five qualities: omniscience, omnipresence; omnipotence, eternity, and unity.

    Hebrew: Five represents strength and severity; radical intelligence. In kabbala five represents fear.

    Hindu: Five is the quinary groups of the world; the five elements of the subtle and coarse states; their primary colors; of senses; five faces of Siva and the twice-five incarnations of Vishnu.

    Islamic: There are five pillars of religion; five Divine Presences; five fundamental dogmas; five actions; and five daily times of prayer

    Parsee: Five is a significant number in Parsee and Mandaean rites – possibly connected with the five sacred intercalary days of light.

    Pythagorean: Hieros, gamos, the marriage of heaven, earth. It represents Apollo as God of light and his five qualities.

    —Uncanny timing, indeed! – Greer

  7. P.S. I just noticed this you posted this on May 22nd…obviously May is the 5th month of the year, but the number “22” has powerful meanings as well, since it’s one of the numbers that is not broken down into a single digit. This number represents my personal “Expression Number” based on my birthday and full given name at birth, so I always look out for it…

    The number “22” represents: The Master Builder, Dreams Made Manifest, Ancient Wisdom, Realization, Force of Nature, The Future, Evolution, Technology, Universal Love, God, Retribution, Redemption, Love, War, Leader, The Universe, Personal Power, Charisma, Service, The Divine Imagination.

  8. Greer, that was an amazing run-down. A lot more than I was expecting when I threw {*5} to the winds. Thank you!

  9. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation :) Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Emergent

  10. Hi CelticRebel, kaliopa. hello All. Humble human SUB.meat.thing, sorry, submiting co-ment here; I also had this wiki-pedia bug in my (?) mind, specialy the wiki part… till i took the easier path: Dosnt it sound like the diminutive of weak? like: Hey you weaky children,come to mumy…? Ok, Hugs… time to submit… again…

  11. sedulisxu, It does sound a lot like “weak” … though likely, when a word doesn’t have a direct correlation in the English, it usually stems from some other language, and usually not the one the consensus agrees upon.

  12. Ummm I don’t mean to be dense… isn’t bipedal having two feet (not having two children)? I have gotten pedicures and not podicures. Perhaps I’m missing something. :P
