New View on Rennes-le-Château

Rennes-le-Château, located in southern France, represents a nexus of ancient mysteries, regardless of whether the Priory of Sion is fictional. In 1891, while making repairs to the church building, Bérenger Saunière, who had been appointed village priest in 1885 is said to have found a hidden document (parchments) in a hollow column beneath the altar. The document has been examined by veteran researchers and some elements are verifiable. 

Our purpose here is to establish a better understanding of two of the most significant clues. That understanding is certain to prove useful in further efforts to settle the mystery. The two clues are: “blue apples” and “Arx Adia,” or “Arc-adia.” 

What would the term “blue apples” signify? The apple symbolizes the archetypal relationship shared by Eve and Adam, Venus and Lucifer, Isis and Osiris, as well as Mary and God’s Spirit; it represents “duality conjoined,” metaphysically as well as physically—quintessentially. Apples are a species of fruit in the rose family and may be red, yellow, or green, but never blue. Like a blue rose, also absent in Nature, a blue apple symbolizes a humanly unfathomable mystery, an impossible dream, something that lies beyond fully grasping in space-time. Blue apples symbolize a deep desire for union with super-nature, oneness with infinite godliness, and/or union with gods/eternal being: transcendence, immortality. Moments of “cosmic consciousness,” such as clairvoyant visions, could be called “blue apple” experiences. The message that Mary received from Gabriel could also be called a blue apple experience. 

What could the reference to Arcadia mean? Part of the inscription combines Greek and Latin letters which, in English state: “And I am in Arcadia.” We take this to mean: “Part of me, my body, is interred here, and I, in spirit, am also in Paradise,” or “You are standing there in the flesh and I am in Heaven.” But it may additionally mean: “Part of my body is buried here and part in Arcadia.” In the first two possibilities is embedded the Hermetic message related to the duality of “above” and “below.” We, however, favor the third interpretation. In mythology, Arcadia is a paradisiacal place, an ideal place isolated from the rest of the world where there is peace and plenty. To a secret society with roots in Atlantis, it would be the “New Atlantis.” If the third rendering is correct and part of the body, say the heart, was buried in “Arcadia,” where would Arcadia be found on Earth at that point in history? America. 

America, like Arcadia, is seven letters long and begins and ends with an “A.” As we alluded to in our post: “Analysis: Botticelli’s ‘The Birth of Venus’,” there is much evidence supporting the idea that a group (Priory of Sion?) operating in secrecy planned to restore an ancient global empire, and that the unfolding of this plan during the Renaissance involved using the coffers of Spanish royals to fund the next stage of development. In addition to Botticelli’s painting “The Birth of Venus,” Botticelli made an earlier painting that also uses mythological figures in order to, we argue, express the vision of Arcadia that would come to be named America. That painting is titled: “La Primavera.” Together, these paintings reveal the pre-planned discovery of the new Arcadia.

    Is there anything more that would reinforce or expand your analysis of the symbolism of blue apples?

  2. PluribusOne™ Says:

    Yes. Our focus in the post was on the apple more so than the blueness.

    The color blue corresponds to the number five, and we note that the five-sided geometric figure, the pentagon, has been found in the associated enigmatic painting, “Shepherds of Arcadia,” as well as in the landscape and topography of the area. The pentagon and pentacle have been considered magical/power symbols for longer than history records. Hence, the enormous Pentagon office building, headquarters of the U. S. Department of Defense.

    The quality of five and, therefore, blue, is embedded throughout the mysteries of Rennes-le-Château—the facility and its vicinity embody a kind of blue apple orchard.

    The term quintessence (fifth essence), or quintessential, has meaning reflected in the attributes of the so-called Philosopher’s Stone, in the fifth element (aether) of the ancient Greeks, and in the term “quintessence” (dark energy scalar field) of modern physics.

    In Hermetic Philosophy, “five” can be seen as standing on the brink between “above” and “below,” which, in terms of our Noetitek™-based grasp of the dimensions of space-time-mind, is correspondent with the center of Time through which all creations of Consciousness pass in the process of transforming into “solid” form. Metaphorically, if not physically, a pentagram or pentagon can be seen as a portal through which intention becomes manifest “from out of the blue.”

    The stained glass windows that colorfully glow as they filter light at Rennes-le-Château depict five scenes from the New Testament—another blue apple, an expression of spirit-borne perfection, a symbolic fruit that, when ripe, falls effortlessly from the tree. The Hindu god Krishna is depicted as being blue-skinned, as if representing a perfected fifth race of Man.

    Mérovée, the Frankish King for whom the Merovingian Dynasty was named, was believed to have been co-fathered by Clodian le Chevelu and a member of a race of human-amphibians: the Quinotaur. Was the alleged human-alien hybrid, Mérovée, the first blue-blood royal, the first dauphin (dolphin), also the first member of a fifth race of Man? In any case, there is that “five” again. Some historians demean this “quin,” this five, calling it “uninformative.” Clearly, we conclude otherwise: that the quin/five quality is a master key to putting all of the blue apples into a proper basket.
