Very nice find, Don! Particularly (as one would suppose my reaction) the
link on Dyaus-Nahusha. Personally, I would never have imagined a linkage
between Quetzalcoatl's little raft and Noah's ark, however, the flags for
Genesis 6 were quite obvious in the various morphings of the word "chem" as
"shem" and "Ham".

Of course, from a certain interview (James Jordan's I think) we know that
Wolfe believes that the Old World and New World cultures are *directly*

This also (possibly) clears up a nagging question for me as to why Wolfe
chose to embody Quetzalcoatl and Dionysus in a single character. I had
finally decided it was because of the "horned" asps of Egypt but that seemed
tenuous even for me. ;-)

However, the graphic of Quetzalcoatl on his raft at
www.viewzone.com/noah.story.html (on a raft with two snakes) only stirs up
another frustrating question - it has always seemed to me there ought to be
*two* serpents on the Whorl (two serpents on the Sun disk of Thebes, on the
alchemist's Tau Cross, given by Athor to Ranpo in the Egyptian drawing that
includes the god Chem, etc.).

But thanks (grrr) to Roy's excoriating (excruciating) picking apart of my
textual reading, I can no longer accept that Tussah is an inhume. Freed from
that misapprehension I have been able resolve several thematic puzzles on my
mental shelf. Don's revelations continue the trend that builds the case
against two serpents on the Whorl for after all there is only one Noah, one
Dionysus, one serpent in the Garden.

So, I don't know. Thematically, there is less and less need for two serpents
but the symbolic penchant ever increases.  Very frustrating.
