Thank you; it just helped me see how the Dionysian is the 'eye of the phallus' - lightning in Moreau's painting and the Apollonian is the 'eye of the mind' as in your own painting - the scorching sun. To the greek, perception was a 'tactile' experience,, seeing was as good as coveting, touching, grasping, consummating… Beautiful work. (reg. the kabbala - the 9 world drawing looked distinctly like the kabbala] Thank you for that. Someone I know put it like this: "Uruz is strength that bends matter, the way gravity has formed the bone, to the earth." I continued on that line of thought to say, Yes, the power that cannot be owned in a single self. " The phrase "crossing the rubicon", also called the "point of no return". "The point of no return is the point beyond which one must continue on one's current course of action because turning back is physically impossible, prohibitively expensive or dangerous." Mathematically, the exponential surge. In the blessed state, the "must" disappears, and one can continue on, without falling back. Like one has cleared a threshold that sustains on its own. Uruz is that vitality and perseverance. The runic pictogram here is the hoof of the wild beast taking its first foot foward... the first break-through, the first dawn of a new day, a daring courage, the first confidence. Sweeping change, a revolution. Raw, primal virility. Anglo-Saxon has: "Ur (iron-slag or possibly drizzle) proceeds from brittle iron. The reindeer often runs on icy snow." To dance on ice or by extension slippery mud is a power also called grace. You need Uruz' shape-sustaining power when there is no ground. "The organic patterning energy of Uruz laces up the skin, sustains the ego and can be used to protect the psyche from trauma. Self-healing is the energy which pulls a diseased or ill form back toward its ‘primal blueprint’: the original, invisible shape intended by nature’s design." Lost things are restored to its pristine, ice-clear form. The congealing or coagulating power in blood. Reconstructions of a victim's parts to the destructive primal forces of the fire, earth, etc. are here. GvL. calls it the rune of the doctor, and "The basis of all manifestation is the Primeval. Whoever is able to recognise the cause of an event, to him the phenomenon itself does not seem to be an insoluble puzzle -- be this fortunate or unfortunate -- and therefore he is able to banish misfortune or increase luck, but also to recognise false evil and false luck as such. Therefore: Know yourself, then you will know all!" Thus, its also marking off territories, and vice-versa, to be free of containment when used as a protection. Ur is in the very urge, stamina, the impulse to be, replacing what has shed, matter adapting like ley lines creating a path, shape-shifting power of the Actor, of alien donor transplants, etc. The materialization of thought, idea - so, role-models who draw up and raise individuals and individuality from undifferentiated mess. Pygmalion love, the coming alive in flesh, orgasm, liberations in mass orgies. While fehu is portable wealth, uruz is the phenomenal and unmanifest power of money, possessions that can shape the future. Data restoration, information architects, vitality of our earth-roots, chthonic power of our ancestral roots, pictorially like a portal one draws back from. Also our very body like a vessel that can hold the transcendent without being shattered by the terrific numinous. Scapegoats that take your place, literally recreating you in the sacrificial animal in your stead, and therefore the debt that "weighs you down" like gravity." The difference between Othala [odalism - portal back into your ancestry and deep roots] and Uruz seems like a thin one.
