RE: Knight's Move
months ago I wrote to William Buehler about a dream I had had. The dream
is not important.
the dream came ideas, the ideas built on the knowledge I already had, and
started to form a pattern regarding CHESS.
only recently come to realise how the wonderful game of Chess consists of unseen
puzzles, keys, clues and history.
game was brought back to Europe from the crusades after contact with the Islamic
world. Few Europeans took advantage of Islamic knowledge, but we know the
Templars certainly did; riches is in Knowledge! Cartography, Astronomy,
Mathematics, Medicines, gardens and more.
William Buehler has revealed the Knight's (Templar)
move for our benefit.
Bishops were originally Ships, plying the seas and tacking with the Winds,
winning trade routes, exploration of new lands and Knowledge per Prince
Church was quick to modify the game to introduce its authority and relace ships
with Bishops, but the diagonal movement no longer makes sense for this
Rook is styled as a tower or (Magdala) rather than as a castle, an overt clue to
Mary Magdalene, same can be seen in the Tarot Cards also introduced with hidden
meaning into Europe.
pawns have not changed, they represent us all, the common man/woman, soldier,
peasant, fools; all tools of feudal times.
Queen has the most power, the Life and bloodlines sustain through her power

King has the same moves but to a very limited degree, one move only any
direction (except he also cannot perform the Knights move).
King is restricted because he has his earthly treasures with him that slow him
down. He fears constant danger and is tied to the board with single

Knight's move is only performed by the one piece, it is used in play with
opposite thinking, the piece can never move in a straight line,
requires the ability to see around corners or see outside of the normalcy of the
general game and of life.
other piece must proceed through the game plodding away in straight lines just
as we do in life.

don't take me to task on facts of proof, as its past midnight I crashing out to
dream some more.
Hopefully I will dream of Rosslyn.
It made me think of two things:
1. The emphasis in Freemasonry on perpendiculars and the
"angle of a square", etc.
2. The perpendicular is the
direction taken when moving from one dimension to a higher one -- from a
point to a line, a line to a plane, a plane to a solid. Within the
lower dimension, the perpendicular extension to the next dimension is seen
as a mere point -- exhibiting location perhaps, but no measureable
reality. In our 3-dimensional "physical" world, I picture each human
mind as such a point, extending in directions not measureable by wordly
Loved the reference to the Knight's Move in chess. I'm
not familiar with the horse symbology, though it sounds very intriguing.
The French maintained
that Henry's 'coat-of-arms' showed the head of a camel which, on reading the
above, would seem
to fit in with his unique position as Head of the
Sinclair family which, as heir to the Templar knowledge, mystique and
had a strategy which transcended national boundaries.
hundred years later, we are beginning to understand the underlying motives,
the raison d'etre, for his voyage to the
New World and this will
have full discussion in Dr Tim Wallace Murphy's and Marilyn Hopkin's new book
on that historic
voyage. I have been privileged to have a pre-view of
some of the Chapters. It will lay to rest, once and for all, any
doubts which people may still have about the voyage. It is
a authorative tour de force by the authors of such masterly
as "Rosslyn" and "Rex Deus".
