The two primary deities of the Bronze Age—that is, the goddess (Venus, Astarte, Ishtar) and her male consort (Jupiter, Jove, Adonis, Adonai)—have a direct scientific relationship to the actual substances found in bronze. The alchemical metal associated with the planet Jupiter is the substance known as stannum. It is an element listed on the periodical table of elements and is the most tonally resonant of all metals. This substance is very compatible with copper (the alchemical metal associated with Venus) and is combined with copper to produce bronze. This is not a coincidence, but one of the numerous instances where actual scientific fact justifies the wisdom of the ancient mysteries found in the myths and legends of past civilizations.
The vibratory nature of Jupiter and Venus (as opposed to the diurnal liquid essence of Mars and its related alchemical metal of iron—the yang essence) is also expressed in certain Eastern paradigms as the dark yin essence of the nocturnal feminine side of reality. The fact that the hearing (vibratory perception) of an individual is far more sensitive at night and at lower levels of light is yet another scientific justification of this ancient wisdom. Sound does not require light in order to be perceived by the human senses. Because of this simple fact, the well-known phenomenon of visually impaired individuals having better than average sensitivities to the nuanced subtleties of sound is scientifically justified.
Without exception, in every ancient depiction of Jupiter, the god possesses long hair. This is because of the simple fact that the vibratory energies of Venus and Jupiter are increased within individuals who possess long hair. This concept can be found in the ancient Masoretic texts in the tale of Samson. When Samson loses his hair, the vital essence of the entity that is expressed with the Tetragrammaton—also known in Latin as Jove Pater (Jupiter)—leaves the body of Samson. This is because the hair is needed as a device to enhance the vibratory energies that emanate from the planet Jupiter. This assertion is a basic scientific fact even though it is not completely understood by Western science. It is because of this scientific fact that the ancient priests took the holy vows of the Nazarite, which are described in detail in the ancient text now commonly known as Numbers. The second rule of the holy vows required that the hair on the head not be cut, so that the individual may better receive the energies of Jove/Jupiter.
It is also fact that the scientifically measurable radio frequencies from Jupiter are much stronger—stronger than even those that emanate from the sun—when its moon, Io, is visible to Earth. Io is one the 4 largest moons of Jupiter (also referred to as the Galilean moons) and can be considered the "Venus" of the Jupiter system—Europa is Earth; Ganymede is Jupiter; and Callisto is Saturn. Thus, it would make logical sense that it also be able to better amplify the frequencies of the vibratory nature that emanate from Jupiter. By knowing these scientific realities it is easier to understand the basic nature of the nocturnal vibratory essence that was expressed in ancient legend as the goddess and her masculine companion.
Due to the overbalance placed on the yang frequencies of the diurnal flowing energies by Western civilization in the Iron Age, the best way to restore the balance of humanity's purest nature would be to better understand and increase its knowledge and perception of the nocturnal frequencies of the nocturnal feminine currents of the Bronze Age. In this way, humanity can bring the balance back.
Thus, humanity may once again know the true meaning of peace.
