You are to take a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot, a burn for a burn, a wound for a wound, a bruise for a bruise.
- Exodus 21:23-25
Part I. As Above, So Below in the English Language
In many intricate ways, including the fact that the Eyes of the Pyramid form a substantial portion of the metaphorical symbolism found in the Holy Bible, the English language has been literally embedded with the multi-layered meaning of the Hexagram. From the top of the mountain, to the bottom of the valley, the eyes of the pyramid have been a partially hidden, yet increasingly obvious, influence on the development of English, both in Great Britain and throughout the world, including the Land Down Under.
