The Scripture tells us that the saved people of Israel had the sign of the Tau marked upon the forehead. In Revelation, the tau is called “the seal of our God on the foreheads of his servants.” (Rev 7,2-4).
It was said to be for the guidance of the angelic executors of God’s commands – a mark or sign of favorable distinction.
These angels are said to be the executors of God‘s wrath and also to deliver people (Lot) from danger (Gen., xviii-xix Ex., xii-xiv). As St. Paul says, “Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet? Are not the angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent to minister for them, who shall receive the inheritance of salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14).
The word ministering means learning of and attending to others’ needs or to help or care for (someone or something). As if these angels or spirits were with us at all times or were sewn into the fabric of our being and bodies from the day we were created.
St. Basil, (Hom. on Ps. xliii), said our guardian angels can act upon our senses (I, Q. cxi, a. 4) and upon our imaginations (ibid., a. 3). But not upon our wills, except “per modum suadentis”, viz. by working on our intellect, and thus upon our will, through the senses and the imagination. (I, Q. cvi, a. 2; and cxi, a. 2).
The Church Fathers, Tertullian, Origen, Cyprian, and Jerome, said that this was the Early Christian custom of repeatedly tracing the sign of the Tau cross on their own foreheads to symbolize the value of the human mind.
As I will attempt to explain in this essay, these descriptions remind me of our immune system and our microbiota and make up 97% of our DNA. What our ancestors may have called ministering spirits or angels that inhabit and control our gastrointestinal tracts, blood, and brain thus having a direct influence upon our senses, i.e., our thoughts, behaviors, actions, and health.
Like the angels of the Bible, modern science has proven that they help influence and can control the human mind and in doing so, the destiny of mankind.
Today, this description I put forth would make much more sense than Biblical explanations to atheistic scientists and their comrades in academia and the general public.
Meaning that if you truly research Scripture with an open mind, no pun intended to those of you who have been marked for destruction, you will see that it is truly an ancient science, history, and magic book written in allegory to conceal (occult), while also revealing these secrets of human kind.
Now, let me explain how I believe the teachings of the tau and salvation may be related to religion, esotericism, human biology, neuroscience, and the quality of life.
The Prophet Ezekiel speaks of the tau as the mark distinguishing those who were to be saved, on account of their sorrow for their sins, from those who, as idolaters, were to be slain.
“Go through the city, walk through Jerusalem and Mark Tau upon the foreheads of the men that sigh, and mourn for all the abominations that are committed in the midst thereof.
To the others, I heard the Lord say: “Pass through the city after him and strike! Do not look on them with pity nor show any mercy! Old men, youths and maidens, women and children, wipe them out! But do not touch any marked with the ‘Tau’ on the forehead. Begin at my sanctuary.” (Ezekiel 9:4-5).
It’s as if the people of Jerusalem were divided into two camps based on their mental health.
According to the Jewish Encyclopedia:
The cross as a Christian symbol or “seal” came into use at least as early as the second century (see “Apost. Const.” iii. 17; Epistle of Barnabas, xi.-xii.; Justin, “Apologia,” i. 55-60; “Dial. cum Tryph.” 85-97); and the marking of a cross upon the forehead and the chest was regarded as a talisman against the powers of demons (Tertullian, “De Corona,” iii.; Cyprian, “Testimonies,” xi. 21-22; Lactantius, “Divinæ Institutiones,” iv. 27, and elsewhere).
Christians used to swear by the power of the cross (Apocalypse of Mary, viii., in James, “Texts and Studies,” iii. 118).
Tertullian says, “Frontem crucis signaculo terimus” (De Cor. mil. iii), i.e. “We Christians wear out our foreheads with the sign of the cross.” He said, “The Greek letter and our Latin letter T are the true form of the cross, which, according to the Prophet, will be imprinted on our foreheads in the true Jerusalem.” (Contra Marc., III, xxii)
The original meaning of Tau (Taw or Tav) in Hebrew means “mark,” which was the 22nd letter of the alphabet and later became to represent the letter T in Greek.
The mark was how God’s angelic executors were able to find, save or destroy people based on how they thought, spoke, lived and acted.
“For he hath given his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” (Psalm 90:11)
On one side, you had people who were said to be truly sorry for their sins and who were adamantly opposed to the culture of sin, idolatry, and abominations.
They were said to be marked by the Lord with the tau to be saved.
Meaning, these people were chosen by God to be saved by the mark of the Tau seemed to have control and power over their own bodies and minds.
A type of spiritual mark or metaphysical representation that acted as a sign for the people chosen by God to be saved because they were not controlled by the supernatural or infernal forces of Satan or the Devil.
These people who had the mark were also adamantly opposed to sin and evil acts committed by their fellow countrymen.
On the other side of the camp were the damned.
These were people who accepted and encouraged the sins of Soddom and in doing so, bore the mark of the theta upon their foreheads.
They were under the direct control of Satan or the Devil. A type of beast that was no longer human.
Who our ancestors may have called a demon or possessed by the devil.
Today, we can say they simply lost their minds. Schizzoid…
In doing so, they were marked by ministering spirits for destruction and death.
THE TAU PROTEIN
I find these ancient Biblical stories interesting because as it relates to modern times, we find what is called the tau protein that can be found mainly in the neurons of the central nervous system (CNS) and in the brain’s frontal lobe (under the forehead).
It is associated with the mark of the tau on the forehead of the early Christians as an indication of a sound or strong mind and as I will show, human consciousness.
This proves that the tau is involved in the creative processes and in preserving the health of the brain, and also the destroying powers as I will show.
The tau is a phosphoprotein that contains phosphorus (other than in an associated nucleic acid or phospholipid) critical for mental health, memory, cellular function and to facilitate habituation (a form of non-associative learning).
Tau is phosphorylated in a normal healthy brain, and it becomes hyperphosphorylated in Dementia and Alzheimer’s diseases.
The phosphorylation process plays a key role in metabolism and immune response.It plays a critical role in the regulation of just about everything that determines our health and life span via our cell cycles, growth, and apoptosis.
A protein being phosphorylated is like drinking an energy drink before a workout – it prepares a molecule for some specialized task
It is what I believe is the “energy beacon” or antenna that fungi/molds use as a signaling pathway within the host that can regulate or corrupt protein activity altering the expression of many genes at the cellular level.
Cells also secrete various proteins that become part of the extracellular matrix or are involved in intercellular communication.
Phosphorylation is the process by which protons move through the ATP synthase releasing energy that causes the rotor and rod of the ATP synthase to rotate. The mechanical energy from this rotation is converted into chemical energy as phosphate is added to ADP to form ATP.
The release of one or two phosphate groups from ATP, a process called dephosphorylation, releases energy, i.e., the removal of a phosphate group from an organic compound changing ATP to ADP.
The word phosphorus is derived from the Greek ‘phosphoros’, meaning bringer of light.
In Latin, phosphorus is known as lucifer, meaning the light bringer.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” – Isaiah 14:12
It also helps your nerves and muscles do their jobs. In the form of phospholipids, phosphorus is a component of cell membrane structure and of the body’s key energy source, adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
The tau protein helps make sure your brain operates properly giving your cells all the nutrients they need and for the stabilization of their oscillations for overall mental fitness. It is a microtubule-associated protein (MAP; Weingarten et al., 1975; Witman et al., 1976)
Physicist Roger Penrose, of the University of Oxford, claimed that the brain acts as a quantum computer and protein structures called “microtubules” played a role in human consciousness by exploiting quantum effects.
This may explain why when the tau protein is corrupted creating mental pathologies by something or process, which leads to people losing their minds, memories and consciousness. After all, quantam effect is the effect of one thing on another is the change that the first thing causes in the other.
Since the health and regulation of tau is critical for brain function, this may explain why tau pathology or taupathies lead to cognitive impairment, mental illness and diseases like dementia and Alzheimers.
As if there is a underlying or hidden cause that creates the effects of these mental illnesses and diseases and the tau is a key marker of these conditions.
The metaphysical and biological mark of those who are not to be saved – the damned.
Hence, “Pass through the city after him and strike! Do not look on them with pity nor show any mercy! Old men, youths and maidens, women and children, wipe them out! But do not touch any marked with the ‘Tau’ on the forehead. Begin at my sanctuary.” (Ezekiel 9:4-5).
The mark I contend may have been the tau protein hat acts like a cellular signal or magnet of sorts for the angelic executors of God’s commands to destroy the mentally ill and some who are so sick they act like what our ancestors may have called evil demons.
This story gets even more interesting as it relates to the science of the human mind and human behavior.
Scripture tells us that Jesus, a 33-year-old wise man from the land of Judea (Idumea, Crete) was brought to Golgatha, also known as the “Place of a Skull” and crucified upon a Tau cross with two others, one on each side, with Jesus in the middle.
Miraculously, after the crucifixion upon the tau cross, Jesus is resurrected.
The original Phoenician (Hebrew) meaning of resurrect or resurrection is ‘raising up, rising up’ or ‘to cause to stand or rise up; to raise from sleep or from the dead.
To resurrect is for man to be ‘raised up’ to live in the spiritual realms or what is called to be “born again or ‘born from above’ – spiritually regenerated (John 3: 3-5).
Man is “raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places (spiritual realms) in Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 2: 1,5-6 & Colossians 2:12-13)
We can say that man is now conscious and aware from his former ignorant state of being medically brain dead and controlled by sin – “the soul who sins will die” (Ezekiel 18:20).
“The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23), which is the repayment you receive from being your own ‘god’.
Hence, although physically alive, you can be spiritually ‘dead’. (1 Timothy 5: 6; Revelation 3: 1)
The death of Jesus is not the end of his life or a state of non-existence, but the separation of the mind from the Light or what Christians call “Source of Life – God the Father.”
The resurrection of Jesus from a metaphysical sleep like state or from being unenlightened to become Righteous which is to be enlightened by the power of Almighty God – His Father.
As if he was formerly in a sleep like state under the sway of the Devil, which would be a sentence of mental illness and disease that would equate to death.
This is why in Ancient Christian iconography, Jesus with a halo is often depicted in a cloud of light pointing towards the heavens with his Right hand.
In his left hand he holds the tau cross as he stands upon the Devil who he has conquered, but still is alive as he clutches a human skull.
Jesus Christ is called the substitute Adam or the ‘last Adam’ who tasted death and overcame death on our behalf. He went to Hell to experience eternal death on our behalf. (Hebrews 2:9; 1 Corinthians 15:45-47)
The Spirit of God raised Him from the grave triumphant over all the powers of darkness that had sought to hold Him in their grip. (Psalm 22: 6-8,14-18)
The resurrection of the righteous, based on their union with God through Christ. (in John 5:28, 29)
The resurrection symbolizes the awakening and enlightenment of consciousness that occurs when someone stops abusing themselves and others or what Christian called “sinning.”
This is when a person like Jesus truly uses their senses and brain to think and process information. To use logic and reason rather than just emotionally react to or regurgitate knowledge.
A person that the Hebrews would have called Behimah or Behemoths and the Greeks would have called automatons. In Scripture, they are referred to as Beasts, so called men whose number is 666 to represent the carbon matter in which their mind dwells and is controlled.
For, “If Jesus Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. .. ..you are still in your sins!” (1 Corinthians 15:14 and 17b)
The ancient tau would signify a metaphysical seal or sign in a person’s head that would indicate they were servants (lights) of God as in the case of the “resurected Jesus.”
In John 19:17, we read, “Carrying His own cross, He went out to The Place of the Skull, which in Hebrew is called Golgotha “at the place where Jesus was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no-one had ever been laid” (John 19:41).
Saint Mark (xiv, 32) calls it chorion, a “a place” or “estate”; St. John (xviii, 1) speaks of it as kepos, a “garden” or “orchard”. In the East, a field shaded by numerous fruit trees and surrounded by a wall of loose stone or a quickset hedge forms the el bostan, the garden. (Catholic Encyclopedia 1913)
The word chorion from the Greek χωρος (choros) means a uniquely designated land: anything from a garden to an estate, a country or territory or even a whole realm (such as the realm of the dead).
The Galatians of the Bible descended from the Gaul, and in Paul’s famous complaint about the foolish Galatians who had let themselves get bewitched (GALATIANS 3:1), he also appears to state that the Gaul had reached Christ-awareness, but lost it.
Tau is found in the nucleus of neurons. Tau pathology is the main cause of many neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s, which are caused by the accumulation of abnormal tau protein in the brain referred to as tauopathies.
Within these people’s brains are neurofibrillary tangles or what are called intracellular aggregates of tau protein filaments) and amyloid plaques (extracellular aggregates of amyloid beta-peptides). Researchers have suggested that tau can be involved in rRNA-coding DNA transcription and rRNA processing.
In my last article, Memory Stealers: How fungi (molds) steal a person’s memories,” I explain how several studies have shown that the autopsied brains of Alzheimer’s patients were infected with often multiple types of fungi (molds).
This gets fascinating because the Tau cross is historically associated with Saint Anthony of Egypt and became known as Saint Anthony’s cross, as the fungal disease called ergotism, and later was known as Saint Anthony’s fire.
It was known as Holy Fire (Ignis Sacer) or st-Antony’s Fire in the Middle Ages, because of the burning sensations resulting in the body rotting or decaying, i.e., gangrene of limbs.
Ergot made people mentally ill by causing them to appear agitated, hallucinate, convulse and just appear as if they were crazy or demon possessed.
If the fungal disease was left untreated, blood flow to an infected person’s extremities, resulting in the later stages with gangrene causing fingers, toes, hands and feet to drop off the body.
This reminds me of what we call today diabetes.
A disease that causes your limbs to rot and decay to the point they need to be amputated.
This condition may be the source of “dancing epidemics.” Dancing epidemics (also known as dancing plagues or tarantism) occurred between the 14th and 17th centuries CE. Various medieval chronicles described groups of people engaging in this behavior sometimes for months on end.
These dances appeared to be involuntary and were possibly the result of ergot poisoning, vengeful spirits, supernatural fears, the bite of a tarantula or scorpion and the distress of poverty and hardship of everyday life combined with the occurrences of natural disasters.
In honor of St. Anthony’s life and struggles, the Order of Hospitallers of St. Anthony was established in 1100 CE at Grenoble, France. There a center was created to care for people who were afflicted with ergotism.
The walls of the hospital were painted in red to mimic the burning sensations experienced by those suffering from the illness.
The monks wore black robes adorned with a blue cross.
