Ah, Pegasus. According to the myth, he was born of a non-consensual union between Poseidon and mortal Medusa. Poseidon took the shape of a horse when he raped Medusa in Athena’s temple while she was praying to the Goddess, which appears to be the origins of why Pegasus is viewed as a horse. The same white-winged horse that pulled Zeus’ chariot filled with lightning bolts in battle. The stuff of myth and legend, but how do we know it’s a myth? We just do, right?
No ancient historian reports of this magical creature ever actually existing. So, why did the Greeks write this way? They wrote this way to hide in plain sight deep spiritual truths concealed in symbolism and allegory pertaining to consciousness. That’s what all of these myths are about: you, the elevation of your consciousness and how to obtain access to the higher realms that exist within you by understanding the symbolism and allegory. None of them were ever real. By the way, these same Greek mystics wrote the New Testament. Ahem, moving on.
So, you know of the myth of Pegasus from Greek mythology, and I’m guessing that you also know of the constellation in the sky, right? Good.
In this article, what I will show you is the connection between the myth, constellation, Bible passages and the design of the human brain. Shut the front door! Yep, it’s gonna be a fun article. Let’s jump in!
The father of Pegasus is Poseidon, who is the God of the sea, which makes Pegasus a seahorse. Pegasus is also white, which makes him a white seahorse.
Okay, now that we have established that Pegasus is a white sea horse, let’s see if we can make the connection to the human brain.
In your head, you have as a part of the anatomy of your brain something called the “Hippocampus”. Hippo means “horse”, and campus means “sea monster”. The Hippocampus is the part of your brain that is responsible for memory.
British anatomist and surgeon Henry Gray’s (yes, this is the same person that published “Gray’s Anatomy”) book “Anatomy, descriptive and surgical” describes the Hippocampus this way:
“The Hippocampus Major or Cornu Amonis, so-called from its resemblance to a ram’s horn, is a white eminence of a curve elongate form extending throughout the entire length of the floor of the middle horn of the lateral ventricle”.
A “white eminence”. That’s interesting. Here is an actual image of the Hippocampus alongside a seahorse. Pretty fascinating, right?
As I mentioned before, the Hippocampus is associated with memory but what is also interesting is that in the Bible, the second coming of Jesus is associated with a white horse.
Revelation 19:11-14 King James Version
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
What’s really being said here is that the return of Christ on a white horse is actually referencing Christ consciousness, which would be a return to the memory or restoration of our true selves. Christ needs to be formed in you to experience the second coming. It’s not a literal or future historical event. It’s been two thousand years, let’s move on.
Galatians 4:19 King James Version
19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you
So, it seems that what has been established so far is a connection of the constellation Pegasus in the sky to the white seahorse or Hippocampus in the brain and Biblical passages referencing a white horse or horses. Correct?
From here, is it possible that we can make the leap that somehow Pegasus is possibly responsible for the reactivation or restoration of memory within ourselves, our brains, the Hippocampus within us? I don’t think anything can be ruled out at this point. I mean, we have complete and total amnesia of who and what we are as well as our purpose for being here. Do you know the answers to those questions without using religion? Of course, you don’t. Nobody does. So why don’t we start looking at these ancient myths (including the Bible) the correct way to attempt to figure out just that?
At this point, the word “memory” comes into play and needs to be dissected using Greek myth to get to the bottom of what is truly going on here. Does Pegasus have a connection to memory in Greek myth? You bet he does! Let’s look at the proof of that statement.
In the myth of Pegasus, while he was flying, he kicked the top of Mount Helicon with his hoof causing water to be released from the summit creating something referred to in Greek myth as “Hippocrene”, which, when translated, means “horse fountain”. Oh, by the way, before I go much further, the word “Helicon” comes from the Greek word “helix”, which means “spiral”. That will come into play a little later in this article, but I wanted to give you a heads-up so it makes more sense as we go along.
Now, on this mountain lived nine muses along with the god of the sun, Apollo.
Muse means, among other things, “dreamy abstraction”, “deep thought” or “the art of meditation”. This word is also the root of the word “museum”. You know, the place of memory? Anyway, the nine, violet-eyed muses were born out of nine days of intercourse between Mnemosyne and Zeus. Mnemosyne was the goddess of memory. It’s no coincidence that there were nine muses and that they were violet-eyed. Violet is a clear reference to the crown (third-eye) chakra in Hinduism, and the number “9” in mysticism is representative of consciousness. Cleverly coded indeed.
On a bit of a side note, one of the muses was known as “Polyhymnia”, who was known as the goddess of sacred song. You know, people try to tell me that there is absolutely no connection of the Bible to Greek mythology. Do you see the name of the goddess? Drop the “Poly” and the “ia”. What do you get? Hymn, that’s what. Now let’s all pick up our Hymnals and sing number 456: “Old Rugged Cross”. The very book you use to sing “Amazing Grace” comes from one of the names of the nine muses from Greek mythology.
Let’s condense a bit before moving on.
Pegasus is the white seahorse in the sky, which we connected to the Hippocampus, which is the white seahorse in your brain. So, if the Hippocampus is the white seahorse in your brain, then the Hippocampus in your brain is Pegasus. The Pegasus in your head is the part of your brain responsible for memory.
The myth of the ancients is that this Pegasus stimulated activity on Mount Helicon that caused the fountain, Hippocrene, to erupt. This enamored him as a holy one to the nine muses, whose name means “meditation” and “memory”.
When you think of this, you quickly realize what’s being said here. You come to the conclusion that in as much as the same people who wrote about Pegasus, the white horse, wrote the Bible. Obviously, in these Greek mythologies, there was a knowledge of the Hippocampus of the brain being responsible for memory and knowledge that the stimulation of that Hippocampus or that Pegasus would restore the connection between the universe and the human mind.
We also saw the word “muse”, which means, among other things, “meditation”. This is the root of the word “museum”, which is a place of memory. The whole basis of meditation, especially from an eastern perspective, is to bring the energy up from the base of the spine in a serpentine or spiral motion to impact the Pineal Gland of the brain. This, of course, takes us into the realm of Hinduism, but nobody in the western world, especially closed-minded fundamentalists, want to hear this.
This brings us to the Book of Revelation, Chapter 5, Verse 1:
5 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
That entire passage relates to kundalini, which means “the serpent”, or the raising of the energy up the spine through the seven energy or nerve centers known in the east as “chakras”.
Okay, I conveyed to you earlier that the word “Helicon” comes from the Greek word “helix”, which means “spiral”, and that Pegasus’ hoof struck the top of this mountain, which then released from the summit that which is known in Greek myth as “Hippocrene” or “horse fountain”, right? The Bible can help us further by once again referencing this spiraling energy or kundalini.
1 Kings 6:8 King James Version
8 The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third.
The right side (your spiritual nature or Higher Self) of the house (your body) and the middle chamber (center of the body, the spine), as well as the third (resurrection or renewal in its positive aspect in mysticism) all tie in with what we have been talking about here but, does this movement of energy actually take place in the human body? Can we prove it?
In a NY Times article by Dr. Alfred Lowy entitled “Hormones”, the following quote is relevant:
“After traveling through nerves in the spinal cord, the signal reaches the Pineal Gland. In the absence of light signals, the gland begins production of melatonin”.
Okay, so we have a well known medical doctor with a degree from New York Medical College stating that, yes, the energy moves up the spine and impacts the Pineal Gland in the same way the Hindu mystics have been saying for thousands of years. We can make a reasonable inference that kundalini (the serpent) energy does, in fact, travel up the spine and is now able to be proven with modern science.
All of this happens on Mount Helicon (helix/spiral), which is the spiral mountain, the place of meditation, the place of renewed memory, and is stimulated by Pegasus. Those are some significant truths that have been able to connect so far in this article. But this has nothing to do with a mountain in the same way that Calvary and Golgotha in the Bible have nothing at all to do with a physical location on a map. They both mean “skull” and/or “death”. Mystical, psychological references, not anywhere to be found on a map.
Okay, with all of that now being established, let’s look at a part of the brain that’s located in the middle of the Hippocampus called “Ammon’s Horn”:
(ah’mŏn), [TA]one of the two interlocking gyri composing the hippocampus, the other being the dentate gyrus. Based on cytoarchitectural features, Ammon horn can be divided into region I [TA] (regio I cornus ammonis [TA]), region II [TA] (regio II cornus ammonis [TA]), region III [TA] (regio III cornus ammonis [TA]), and region IV [TA] (regio IV cornus ammonis [TA]).Synonym(s): cornu ammonis[G.Ammōn,the Egyptian deity AmūnFarlex Partner Medical Dictionary © Farlex 2012
Do you see the reference to the Egyptian Sun God, Amun? The Jews were in Egypt as early as 300 BCE and were exposed to the worship of Amun, whose name was invoked at the beginning and end of every prayer. This is exactly where the word “Amen” comes from. It does not mean “so be it” in Hebrew. That’s a lie sold by religion. I actually did an article on the word “Amen” here if you want the full breakdown.
Now, can we find evidence that Jesus is associated with Amen? Not in a “in-Jesus’-name-we-pray-amen” kind of way but an actual connection with mythology? Let’s take a look at the Book of Revelation, which, for those of you that don’t know, is a forgery that has its origins in another forgery called the “Sibylline Oracles“, which has its origins from an original text called “The Mysteries of Isis and Osiris“. The rabbit hole is deep, people.
Revelation 3:14 King James Version
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God
Okay, going back and summarizing all we have discovered here today, let’s break it down the following way:
There is a Pegasus in Greek myth that has correlations with a constellation in the sky and a part of your brain, the part associated with memory.
Pegasus’ hoof struck the top of Mt. Helicon, which is related to the Greek word “helix, which means “spiral”, which then released the fountain called “Hippocrene”. This upward, spiraling fountain consists of water, which is representative of “truth” in mysticism. Meaning there is a hidden truth deep within you that only can be accessed by Pegasus or the Hippocampus within you.
Once we flip the coin to the design of the human body, we see the clear connection to meditation, specifically kundalini meditation. The serpent-like energy spirals up the spine and impacts the pineal gland, the crown chakra, third eye, the violet-eyed muses and begins the process of restoring truth, the memory of who you are, what you are and your purpose here and now.
But none of this can happen unless Pegasus’ hoof strikes Mount Helicon and releases Hippocrene, or you start your meditational practice without delay. The universe will open up to you but it will only meet you halfway. The journey has to begin with you wanting to know the secrets of yourself and then putting into practice the methods discussed here today.
I think that all of this information is very interesting. Putting away the literal take on religion, we come to a much deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in this vast universe. Once you understand how these texts are coded, you can begin the process understanding the deeper mystery hidden within them, and by default, the mystery of yourself.
You have to be the rider of Pegasus and steer him to Mount Helicon within you. The power is truly within you if you allow it to be.
