Pieces of 8
formally “peso de ocho reales” or “piece of eight” in America—was abbreviated PS.
Pieces of eight were so well known that when the U.S. became a nation and began to mint their own currency they modeled them on this famed coin. The U.S. quarter at the time was worth 2 of those pie pieces from a piece of eight which is the reason they are sometimes referred to as “two bits” even today.
Before the Morgan dollar, or even the pinetree shilling, metal coinage existed in the American colonies. Much of it was coinage that had been brought over with the early settlers from their home countries, but one particular coin originated in the Americas and could not, in fact, have existed as it did except for the wealth found in the New World. This is the Spanish piece of eight.
If you know your American history, you’ll know that the English were not the first to explore North America. They were simply the ones who settled most of what is now the United States and Canada. Many countries in Europe were interested in finding and claiming new territories. These include France, the Netherlands, Portugal, and, of course, Spain.
As coins, pieces of eight, also known as Spanish 8 Reales or Spanish milled dollars, were both large and heavy. Their design changed quite a bit over time and eventually incorporated the reigning Spanish king, but the ones minted in the Americas contain the Spanish coat of arms and the pillars of Hercules. They are the direct ancestors of the American silver dollar, although they were much more valuable in the 16th century than silver dollars are today.
During times of trouble with paper currency, Spanish milled dollars continued to be used to buy and sell goods and services. You may have heard the term “two bits” which remains in our language today. This meant two of the eight reales or one quarter of the value of a Spanish piece of eight.The Historical Importance of the Spanish Piece of Eight
Ayn Rand, in her novel “Atlas Shrugged” wrote a chapter on the dollar sign, claiming the symbol not only of American currency but of the nation’s economic freedom. The dollar sign (written with two downward slashes instead of one) came from the initials of the United States:
… a “U” underneath an “S”, ‘the spinning “S” relieving “U” of your baseline. The new ‘Lines’ are now the Pillars of Hercules or Duality.
The spinning “S” of coming and going breaks the baseline of the “U” and creates a false “duality” of good and bad, winning and losing. The new format of two lines instead of a “U” creates the illusion of Duality and the spinning “S” creates the power of twists and turns and tricksters to manage it and present as examples of “real life” to you. Via corporations, Hollywood, government and institutions.
In 2006 (adds to 8) pow Synchromysticism
Mysticism, in turn, has been loosely defined as union with God or the Absolute.
Synchromysticism, as the union of synchronicity and mysticism, is thus the sense of interconnectedness and oneness with reality that comes from a heightened and enhanced awareness of synchronicity
Synchromysticism is an emerging field of study and subculture existing on the fringe of areas already considered fringe – primarily mysticism and Jungian psychology. The word was coined by Jake Kotze in August of 2006 for an article posted on his website Brave New World Order, who defined it as: “The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance.” As Kotze recalled in an email:
“I needed something to explain a way of investigating subjects with synchronicities and the word seemed to fit… My biggest inspiration for this kind of thinking and investigating came from Goro Adachi at Etemenanki. Goro calls his research multi-contextual.”
Is there an underlying ‘source pattern’ throughout all things?
The Source of All?
“Kotze explained in a March 20, 2008 post on his The Blob website, regarding the Hugh Jackman-Stargate connection: This suggests, in my view, a non-local intelligence guiding the affairs of the universe rather than conscious tomfoolery on the part of a human agencies such as conspiring Hollywood magickians. The embedding of symbolism is too well orchestrated, subtle and concise. The noisy plotting and scheming of the human mind doesn’t directly create the phenomena charted by synchromysticism. The patterns found emanate from the same force that organizes uncountable numbers of snowflakes into unique (all being appreciably different) but certainly not individual (all comprising six way geometry) forms. The same force that animates this very moment you read this sentence, the moment of present awareness that is inseparable from who you are.”
Above confirms we all must face the same
“Source Pattern” or source of All.
Everyone has the same/equal access to this pool/loop.The Cryptic Cosmology of Synchromysticism
Dharma means D’Harm A
The Buddhist Dharma wheel is also a Pirates Ship’s wheel used to steal pieces of eight. The “8” is a closed loop of eternal cycles. It is only infinite because it never ends…
unless you notice and fight!
The Loops are in Musick and Magick
Western Musick relies on formal systems to express musical ideas. The addition of the letter “k” to music indicates a deeper interpretation of all things musical; such as in the difference between “magic” and “magick,” where (stage-)magic is just illusions, and “magick” refers to a more occult understanding of the term. Notation plays a crucial role in the compartmentalization of rhythm and tone. It is upon the musical “staff” (Also known as the pentagramma in Spanish) that dynamic tones are turned to stone and portrayed as hardened notes. These notes rest on or between ledger lines and are assigned single-letter names.https://synchromystic.fandom.com/wiki/Middle_C
Eight Forms of Mysticism
Most of us are mystics. We may be water mystics or friendship mystics or music mystics or basketball mystics. Or all of the above plus more.
We may or may not have particular mystical experiences, but we have mystical sensibilities. These are feelings and intuitions we have, beyond words, of something real and important.
In these feelings we experience awe and wonder. We know that there is more to the life than meets the clinical eye or the bifurcating intellect. As these feeling unfold there is a dropping away of the private ego and awakening into something deeper and wider. We no longer feel trapped by boundaries of our own making.https://www.openhorizons.org/eight-kinds-of-mysticism.html – their big ‘thinking’ list of “8” below
