The Vault of Heaven is an ancient reference to the globe that contains the stars in the sky, during the times when they believed that the stars weren't millions of light years away, but just smaller objects, nearby--curiously, the same conclusion I can to when trying to model the stars in the Reciprocal System. In the context of the RS, that would make the Vault of Heaven analogous to the gravitational limit (the Pythagorean Monad for the solar system).
Now you've been programmed to believe that the Pillars of Hercules are the Straits of Gibraltar, to prevent you from making a rather obvious correlation. You should read the Wikipedia entry on the Pillars, just for background info. But pay attention to the section that says, "Pillars are portals," which is what mythology (and symbology) is actually saying.
This section is also quite interesting:
What "twin towers" were the tallest buildings in America? And consider 9/11 -- where "11" is a symbol of two pillars and "9" is the number of man (not 5, as many believe), and "/" (the slash) means to cut or divide.On the Spanish coast at Los Barrios are Torres de Hercules which are twin towers that were inspired by the Pillars of Hercules. These towers are the tallest buildings in Andalucía.
Seems that the NWO is claiming to have destroyed the Portal of Hercules.
Now, what Titan held the world upon his shoulders, with two, upraised arms?
Not Hercules... but Atlas. Notice how the upright arms look like two pillars, with the planet as the portal.
In Aztec, Atlas is called Atlanteotl, the water-god who "was condemned to stand forever on the edge of the world, bearing upon his shoulders the vault of the heavens." The temple to Atlanteotl was in Aztlan (Atlantis), named after the god.
Connect a few of these pieces together... the vault of heaven is the Monad of the gravitational limit, so how can a god stand at the "edge of the world," one limit, to support another? The RS has an answer for that, and it is called the "unit boundary" -- the "edge" of the physical atom that distinguishes "location in space" from "structure in time."
The translations of the word "support" or "bearing" are fairly accurate, whether Greek or Aztec. The concept is the Latin sustineo, "sustain" or "maintain." What we have here is Atlas "maintaining" a portal between the Vault of Heaven and the Earth--and notice his arms are on opposite sides of the Earth, two pillars or axes. If you check creation mythos in almost any culture, you will find the "twin dilemma" of two "somethings" supporting the Earth, whether shoulders, axes, arms, pillars or gods.
Now these rupes nigra et altissima locations reveal something interesting on how the Vault of Heaven and the Pillars of Hercules connect to yet another legend, Atlantis. Also consider this map, from the Schoner globe of 1515 AD which shows Antarctica without the ice, but with another feature that we don't see anywhere on modern maps, namely an inland sea with "Straights" much like the Mediterranean:
And before I give my understanding of this, I was just curious to see if anyone could assemble these pieces to see what they show...
