Matrix Mysteries

Les Mystères de la Matrice



English : ‘Nature loves to conceal itself’ (phusis kruptesthai philei).
This fragment is part of book that Heraclitus deposited, as tradition reports, in the temple of the famous Artemis of Ephesus. A book reputed to be obscure and without a title, in which he is supposed to have summed up all his knowledge. The statue at Ephesus must probably have given a glimpse of a definite similarity to those matriarchal cults of prehistoric origin (such as the Willendorf Venus, for example, or the well-known statues found in Malta). In this case we have a black wooden idol with a bare bosom and sometimes up to three rows of breasts, whereas the lower part of the body was enclosed in a narrow sheath decorated with various animals and other diverse ornaments (according to the copies discovered: trees, plants, stags or other wild beasts which she fed and protected). In short one of the most ancient representations of Our Lady (Notre Dame) Nature. Cf. Book review by Wolfgang Wackernagel, The Genius of Our Lady Nature. Notes from a reading of Le Voile d’Isis.
