Many of the most economically creative breakaways
have this sort of history: individuals, or a few
colleagues together, leave their jobs in a large
organization and independently reproduce the same
fragment of work they had been doing there.
Usually their customers are small organizations too.

Then the breakaway adds new work to its older work.

"Sophia, the eldest and most beautiful daughter
of God, sat in her airy castle in the most
delightful corner of Heaven. Sighing, she
laid her hands on her lap and sadly looked
through an open window at the eagle
soaring high in the air...

'Would that I had never been called a
daughter of God....I sit lonely and deserted
day after day; for me there is no festival,
no one shows any interest in me, no one takes
me to the place where I might enjoy sunshine
and the breath of the forest.'"

"Slowly her brother raised his head and looked
at his sister, who stood before him in all the
glory of her beauty, her charming face flushed
with animation, and her whole figure bathed
in light."

"But who may abide" : "And He Shall Purify"

"Every Valley Shall be Exalted"

What is above places itself
under what is below:
This is the way of the great light.

Heaven dispenses, earth brings forth:
Thereby things increase in all directions.

If thou wouldst complete the diamond body

Diligently heat the roots

out of the 'lead of the water-region'
grows the noble gold; what is unconscious
becomes conscious....The sun wheel begins

The sun, who has existed from the beginning,
rises up like a falcon out of the midst of the
lotus bud. When the doors of his petals open
in saphire-coloured splendor, he has sundered
the night from the day.

Thou risest up like the sacred snake as a living spirit,
creating the beginnings and shining in thy glorious form
in the barge of the sunrise.

The divine Lord whose image dwells in secret
in the temple at Dendera is made the creator of the world
by his work. Coming as one, he multiplies himself
a millionfold when the light goes forth from him
in the form of a child.

It furthers one to undertake something.
It furthers one to cross the great water.

Six in the second place means:

Someone does indeed increase him;
Ten pairs of tortoises cannot oppose it.
Constant perseverance brings good fortune.
The king presents him before God.

In the soul, therefore, are God

Odysseus spied a light blazing from the
windows of a great chapel by the sea. It was
the Temple of Aphrodite, the Queen of Love,
and from the open door a sweet savour of
incense and a golden blaze rushed forth till
they were lost in the silver of the moonshine
and in the salt smell of the sea.

The World's Desire
-H. Rider Haggard & Andrew Lang

Diana Ross - "Chain Reaction"

"Copper (cuprum) is correlated with the Cyprian"

For humans were created on condition of their
being the guardians of the globe... which is called earth.
Man has been given a soul from those eternal fires
that you call the heavenly bodies and stars.
They are round and spherical, animated by divine spirits.
They complete their circles, paths of marvelous velocity.
