Coded X-Rune Mystery Solved

In 1898, a Minnesota farmer discovered, embedded in the roots of an upended tree, a stone slab inscribed with letters of a strange alphabet. That stone has come to be known as the Kensington Rune Stone. The stone, dated 1362, was purportedly a marker left by Scandinavian explorers, but its authenticity remains in dispute despite scientific examinations affirming its genuineness. PluribusOne™ accepts the authenticity of the Kensington Rune Stone and the 1362 date it bears, but concludes that it was left by representatives of the Templar Order attacked in 1307 by King Philip of France with the Pope’s backing. The Order was disbanded by Pope Clement V in 1312, and its Grand Master, Jacques de Molay was publicly burned alive in 1314. Some surviving Templars took to the sea in ships and re-headquartered in Scotland.

Recognition that Norsemen traveled to and opened the door for colonization of North America more than 1,000 years ago—long before Christopher Columbus’ “discovery” for Spain—is not recent. I was introduced to this reality more than 50 years ago, not long after excavations at L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland unearthed evidence of a Viking presence as early as 990 AD. The evidence supported sagas recorded in medieval Icelandic manuscripts. Given the date of the Templars’ departure from France, the idea that Templar-directed explorers could have appeared in today’s Minnesota forty-eight years afterward is not unreasonable.

Claims that Norsemen discovered the New World some 500 years before Christopher Columbus sailed are well established and no longer controversial, although this truth remains “inconvenient” for some archeologists and historians. It is a further inconvenient truth that those privy to the Vikings’ knowledge, and who followed in their footsteps, namely the Knights Templar and associated explorers, left evidence-in-stone documenting certain historical exploits, experiences, and land claims. (See our January, 2011 post: “Analysis: Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’,” the December, 2011 post: “Analysis: Botticelli’s ‘La Primavera’,” and the December, 2013 post: “Analysis: Botticelli’s ‘Chart of Hell’,” among others relating to secret society knowledge of the New World and secret plans for future emigration centuries before Columbus.)

Best non-geologic evidence that the Kensington Rune Stone is authentic, and could not have been hoaxed, is an enigmatic element found within its text, a strange glyph, because that glyph appears on other ancient runestones discovered on the North American continent, and more such records in stone are likely to surface over time. The presence of this unique glyph—a modified-X rune—across at least five rune-inscribed stones found in North America indicates a desire on the part of organized explorers to leave a subtle/occulted/coded sign—a kind of esoteric flag, indicia, or logo—indicating a letter of the alphabet as well as identifying the entity in whose name they sailed and explored, a dual-purpose symbol includable in an inscription without affecting readability by the intended audience.

For reasons described in the following paragraphs, I am calling the occultly modified-X a Templar X™ and Templar Rune™ (see Image File #38, accessible from the homepage). Numerous researchers, including PluribusOne™, have contributed to an expanded knowledge of world history by uncovering evidence of hidden agendas and actions of certain secret societies. PluribusOne™’s unique contribution to the matter of authenticating runestones in North America is the analysis of the modified-X sign which has defied all heretofore diligent efforts to correctly decode.

Based on the date engraved on the Kensington Rune Stone, the various stones on which the glyph appears pertain to Templar or Templar-financed and directed expeditions inspired by the earlier Norse explorers. As can be seen in Image File #38, the upper right (from viewer’s perspective) segment of the Templar X™ employed as a unique rune has a roughly perpendicular protrusion. The sign is not an ordinary X; it is a very special X, a Templar-signifying X. The protrusion, we say, symbolizes a thorn, or barb, that corresponds to an aspect of a greater symbol used by the Knights Templar: the rose. The Templar Rune™ is a stylized Rose Cross. The Rose and Cross are symbols having continued prominence in Freemasonry and elsewhere.

Even without the “thorn”, the X by itself serves as a symbol combining symbols for masculinity and femininity in that X can be understood to be composed of a downward pointing V (chevron) symbolizing a vagina and an upside-down V symbolizing a phallus. In other words, the X is, overall, a symbol for Man, for human being. Templars were aware of this, as was Leonardo da Vinci—said to have been a secret society Grand Master—as well as some seekers after esoteric secrets that occult symbols contain. (See also our September, 2012 post: “Sex and Chevrons.”) The equal-sized black and white squares or rectangles forming the background of some Templar flags is seen to convey essentially this same union-of-opposites meaning.

The meaning of X as a NoetiTaoist™ symbol—the NoetiTaoist X™—is derived from a holistic perception that X is composed of not two but four V-shapes. In addition to the upward and downward V-shapes, on the left-hand side of X (from the viewer’s perspective) the horizontal V represents Source Energy Awareness/SEA, which is neither masculine nor feminine but the origin of both. The horizontal V on the right-hand (mirrored) side of X signifies “child” of nonspecific gender—female; male; androgyne; hermaphrodite. Whether the Templars held this further insight is unknown to us.

Widely known as a symbol for silence and covert action, the rose was used by royals as well as by secret (sub-rosa) societies—societies holding secrets and pursuing secret agendas/initiatives. But the rose represents much more. The quintessential rose symbolizes Life at the highest and most primal and Omniversal level. Commonly considered a symbol for the Divine Feminine, it is moreover a symbol for the eternally and integrally joined forces of Femininity (the petals) and Masculinity (the thorns), or Omniversal Godhead. Toward validation that Freemasonry, the Templars, and Rosicrucianism are spiritually rooted in Egyptian mysticism, we hereby present a further Noetitek™-derived insight: that the rose as symbol is, even on its own, correspondent with the Egyptian ankh, or crux ansata. Rose and ankh both embody the same enlightened recognition of the inseparability and co-equality of Masculine and Feminine, the “sexual” engine of Omniverse—an arcane, yet simple, truth.

A black rose atop a black cross makes an occulted black ankh and a perfect symbol for the secreted absorption of Egyptian mysteries into elite European fraternities including the Rosicrucians, Templars, and Freemasons who devised various rose-and-cross combinations, the symbolic value of which varies with the contexts in which they are found such that the meaning of a given designated symbol can be said to have faces, layers, or levels. The Holy Grail, for example, can mean the whole of Omniverse, or the womb of Mother Mary, or a golden goblet that held the blood of Jesus, and these three sacred material containers are metaphysically and metaphorically congruous. (See the May, 2014 post: “Grail, Rose, and Cross” and the June, 2016 post: “PluribusOne™’s ‘Law of Congruities™’.”) All rose and cross symbols simultaneously reveal and cloak the Egyptian connection.
