“KILLING THE FATTED CALF, OR KAPH
AS has been written, the origin of words and the application of the characters differ so widely that u confusion worse confounded” is the result in numberless cases.
The eleventh letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Kaph, a hollow and represents the human hand, a hollow or hallowed place.
The cerebrum, upper brain, is hollowed and covers the cerebellum like a wing.
The cerebellum is therefore a secret place where the Ego, or spiritual man, the ‘Second man Adam a quickening spirit,’ or ‘The Lord God from heaven’ dwells. (See 91st Psalm).
The upper brain, in the parable of the prodigal son, is represented as the Father, being the cause of and furnishing the “Substance” to build and replenish the body.
The Ego is represented as saying to the Father, ‘Give me the portion of goods that falleth to me.’
Now this portion was the oil that flows dow,n the Ida and Pingala to form a seed, but the Ego, thinking on the carnal plane ‘wasted this substance in riotous living.’
The evil result that followed is likened to swine, husks, etc., etc. As in the story of Hiram Abiff in Masonry, after the WORD was lost for a season (‘The seed is the WORD’ Luke) it was resurrected so in the prodigal son parable, 29 1/2 days passed, the material for another seed descended and said, ‘I will arise and go to my Father.’
When the seed comes forth out of the manger in Bethlehem (house of bread), ‘I am the bread of life,’ a vibration of greater life is set up (‘Life more abundant’), and it thrills the entire temple of God.
Now comes the astounding revelation: The original meaning of ‘kill’ is not to take life, necessarily; it rather means to choke or squeeze.
To choke a sponge, or squeeze water from it does not mean to take life, but if one’s throat is squeezed or choked for a time and the breath ceases to enter the body, we say the person has been killed.
The gray matter of the upper brain vibrates high is quickened when ‘one-tenth is returned to the Lord’ and thus secretes more abundantly down to the magnetic, chemical center, the cerebellum called heart in Greek ‘As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.’
So, then, the ‘Father killed the fatted kaph’ for the Son, i. e., gave up life for the Ego. ‘Hallowed be thy name.’
The name is hollowed, viz., Kaph, a hollow. The hollow of the knee is named Kaph and spelled calf.
Probably it was applied to a young bovine, because of the peculiar hollow of the belly when the animal is very young.
Here the reader is referred to the 91st Psalm.
In that marvelous allegory, or epic, the hollow of the ‘Most High’ is represented as casting a shadow for the Ego in the “Secret place.” (See cerebellum in chart).
‘His feathers shall cover thee.’ Note the resemblance of the brain convolutions to feathers.”
