Here are some examples of mindprint type 6 Capricornus, Pan, Kokpelli, Janus, or double-header. It is one of the sixteen visual archetypes in the art of all cultures, places, and eras (see Mindprint by Edmond Furter, 2014, Lulu.com, or www.edmondfurter.wordpress.com).
A giant rope controller
Here type 8 Scorpius (decan Ophiuchus, or Galactic rift), is expressed as a bauble head on a rope walker’s staff (Egyptian Hunters palette, Hierakonpolis, Naqada3 culture. Perdyn. Smith 1949. British Museum. Mindprint analysis by Edmond Furter). Its adjacent type 9 Scorpius is bent in trance ritual as usual, holding a rope to an extra type 6 Capricornus and a rear leg of type 5 Aquarius21 as a lion (the guise of its opposite). The other end of the rope passes under type 10 Libra (see the South African Linton panel).
Bushmen say they “climb” out of trance by “the rope of the sky” (Biesele, cited in Lewis-Williams). Type 8 Scorpius Ophiuchus and Hercules are Samson types, roping torches to fox tails, adjusting pillars and paradigms (see fox tails in a Chinese tile at theme 11). To view Samson as arising from a constellation, as De Santillana and many other writers do, is to disown his archetypal pedigree, and to reduce culture to fragments of incidental and incremental hearsay. Type 7 Sagittarius is often a youth, here a lion cub.
Type 6 Capricornus is a ‘double bull’ with two heads, here a gnu (see a Utah image at theme 5). However the averge frequencies of the optional visual attributes of 6 are low. The type is more often recognised by being ingressed towards, or away from the axial ‘pole’ (48% on average in artworks worldwide). Here is is on one of the longest axes, but nor furthest from the pole, as it often is.
Type 5 Aquarius’s body overlaps Capricornus, as it does among constellations, one of the holographic coincidences that mislead many researchers into assuming that myths and icons derive from astrology, while the reverse applies.
Between 6 and 5 is a serekh (proto-cartouche), perhaps a midwinter marker in Age Aries. Celestial polar markers on a hoof and a canine jaw, on the axis of the rope end, tag the inspiration to Age Aries.
A double-headed half-man
Type 6 Capricornus as a double-headed buck bag man (South Africa, Fouriesburg, multi-armed. Bet1. SA National Museum. Mindprint analysis by Edmond Furter). See the same distinctive attribute in the Egyptian Hunters palette at theme 8, and in other Pan themes. See buck bags unfolding as a kind of bagpipe in Pan themes. The type seems to include exuberance. A chameleon with human legs is also known in rock art (South Africa, Schweizer Reneke chameleon double-header, Ditsong Cultural History Museum, not illustrated).
Type 5 Aquarius21 is multi-armed, typical of figures flanking the galactic corners. He is large, active and body-painted as usual, with some attributes of his opposite 13 Leo in a large chest and an extra axis to his heart (usually 13 Leo is the only figure ‘seeing’ by his heart instead of his eye). Here 13 Leo and 11 Virgo share an axis. Due to damage, noted as prior ‘attempted removal’ in the museum, this work has only two demonstrated axes. A celestial polar marker on a hoof, and the vertical plane of the polar figure and some other figures, tag the inspiration to Age Pisces-Aquarius.
A double-headed Janus
Type 6 Capricornus as a double-headed Janus, Pan or Hermes pillar (Poussin; Dance to the music of time, 1638. Mindprint analysis by Edmond Furter).
Time belongs to its opposite, type 14 Cancer, here strumming a tune as a bookend to the herm. 6 Capricornus expresses choice (as in the Paris legend), and the present, difficult to obtain in a consciousness preoccupied with past and future, requiring meditation. The figure is notably far from the pole, as it often is egressed or ingressed (48% on average in artworks worldwide). A rational parallel to the spatial attribute, is that Capricornus is the archetypal position of winter (as Aries is the archetypal position of spring), even before, and after, Age Aries.
Type 2 Taurus is a rain goddess or priestess, as she often is in rock art. Type 10 Libra expresses wheel or carousel of life, here figured only by a foot, as some of Poussin’s figures habitually do.
A celestial polar marker on an elbow tags the inspiration to Age Pisces or Age Pisces late, incidental with the Renaissance. Polar markers are among the best examples of synchronicity, the apparently meaningful co-incidence of events or attributes, not traceable by physical causation or conscious logic.
Pan, Kokopelli, Krishna, Jethro Tull
Type 6 Capricornus as a goat and a human, between a double-headed figure and a flute player (see lower down; Canada, Kokopelli. Mindprint analysis by Edmond Furter). The double-header, perhaps head-butters or wrestlers, or a figure with six legs, is at 8 Scorpius or the galactic centre, and the flautist is at 5 Aquarius21, a type prone to sharing and swopping attributes (see theme 5). Krishna, Pan, Kokopelli and other flute players as lord of animals and forest appear in rock art in the Americas, Zimbabwe and India. Ian Anderson, composer and flautist of jazz rock band Jethro Tull, is possibly an incarnation of Krishna, or at least unconsciously started expressing the repertoire; chromatic music of close-fitting notes, arpeggio slides, meditative riffs, standing on one leg, hairy, popular with goat herdesses, and campaigning for forest preservation.
Anderson discovered on a concert tour of India that “They thought I was making fun of Krishna and I had to explain that I had no idea that Krishna did this… I discovered that I was not the only one-legged flute player on earth.” (Ian Anderson; Jethro Tull, Living with the past, DVD EREDV266, Eagle Vision). A bagpipe with lilting tunes over a set of drones is also a kind of Pan music.
Type 5 Aquarius21 is dominant, with a 6 Capricornus trunk (see a similar figure with large genitals in the USA California Piedra Pintada copy at theme 5, also linked to 6). Some 6 Capricornus types have Pinocchio noses doubling as flutes.
Celestial polar markers on Pan’s genitals and hip damaged by flaking) tag the inspiration to Age Pisces-Aquarius. The horizontal plane tags for Age Aquarius. This poor copy of a damaged image demonstrates the order and focus that mindprint brings to apparent doodling chaos, and the window it opens on the human subconscious.
