No religion? One religion?

Hagia Sophia, the perfect example of a church transformation. “Turkey exercising its sovereign rights”.

Constantinople, formally Byzantium, now Istanbul,  “became the site of Roman Emperor Constantine’s “New Rome,” a Christian city of immense wealth and magnificent architecture [in 330 AD]. Constantinople stood as the seat of the Byzantine Empire for the next 1,100 years, enduring periods of great fortune and horrific sieges, until being overrun by Mehmed II of the Ottoman Empire in 1453.

The first church was inaugurated in 360; that is a few decades only after the Council of Nicea that determined the creation of the Catholic church in 325.

“Hagia Sophia was consecrated on December 27, 537, five years after construction had begun. The church was dedicated to the Wisdom of God, referring to the Logos (the second entity of the Holy Trinity) or, alternatively, Christ as the Logos incarnate.” Curta, Florin; Holt, Andrew (2016). Great Events in Religion: An Encyclopedia of Pivotal Events in Religious History [3 volumes]. ABC-CLIO. p. 299, through Wiki.

From 537 to 1453, the “Great Church” – as the Byzantines called it – was the eastern heart of Christianity. The new capital founded by Constantine aimed at a dissociation from the power of the Roman empire.

According to Robert Ousterhout, contributor in the volume, The Byzantine world, p 335, ‘the idea of the Byzantine capital as ‘New Rome of Second Rome’ is a topos that pervades the literature throughout the byzantine period…. Like Rome the city was built on 7 hills… has a senate house, a capitol, etc

The idea of a New Jerusalem many be a little bit more elusive. In 446 the Mesopotamian monk Daniel the Stylite, on the road… to Palestine, met a mysterious figure who told him ‘not to go to Jerusalem, but go to Byzantium and you will see a second Jerusalem, namely Constantinople’… probably “because of the rich collection of relics (3600) gradually accumulated, New Jerusalem became a metaphor for the increasingly sacred character of the city.”

Arab news: : Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) said that Turkey should no longer receive pre-accession funding from the European Union budget as part of its candidacy process and for economic sanctions to be used as a stick against Ankara, which they called an “authoritarian regime.” For years, President Macron has expressed his concern about Turkey’s political agenda,  asking the ‘European Union to firmly defend its interests’.


Turkey’s rights:  bargain with the migrants, a few years ago… Lybia, Irak, Syria, then assert its territorial and religion ‘rights’, Hagia Sophia. In Syria, although “the presence of Turkey is ‘illegal’ says the international commission of human rights. Despites the advance of the syrian army on Idlib, Ankara keeps increasing its presence, refusing to lose its influence in the country.” Henar Hernández

According to Le Monde, July 10th, “France against Turkey. The recent verbal escalation between Paris and Ankara, about Libya is only the revelator or larger divergences, lingering for years.” Le Monde, July 10th. In 2018, the three spouses of Turkish diplomats, visiting France, refused to be photographed without their veil… Ankara removed the diplomatic visas for the workers in French embassies. Paris replicated with Turkish diplomatic personal. ‘the many incriminations against Ankara: massive implication in the Libyan conflict, migrants blackmail, massive purchase of military goods from Russia” , with implications in NATO, plus an ongoing inquiry digging in the murky waters of intelligence agencies: the French DGSE apparently gathering intelligence from a Turkish national.

The decision to return Hagia Sophia to a mosque will not help Turkey in its position in the European Union, but confirms its will to mimic Russia’s behavior: attempt to ‘reconstitute a lost empire {…] and ‘hard tendency to rewrite history’. It also brings up the question of Turkey’s secular nature.


Lemonde, July 13: Asli Erdogan : « Sainte-Sophie en mosquée est une gifle au visage de ceux qui croient encore que la Turquie est un pays séculier .Pour la romancière, le président turc Recep Tayyip Erdogan montre qu’il ne veut plus s’encombrer des valeurs morales attribuées à l’Occident comme la loi ou la démocratie.” »   TRIBUNE



Turkey’s history is very rich. Over centuries, the territories of Anatolia and Thrace were the home of various opposite cultures. As for the population, “Historians generally agree that the first Turkic people lived in a region extending from Central Asia to Siberia. Historically they were established after the 6th century BCE.[20] The earliest separate Turkic peoples appeared on the peripheries of the late Xiongnu confederation about 200 B.C.”

Sunni Islam is the main religion in Turkey. Although officially a secular country, “in the early 2000s (decade), Islamic groups challenged the concept of a secular state with increasing vigor after Recep Tayyip Erdoğan‘s Islamist-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP) came into power in 2002.”


“Islam started to penetrate in the present Turkish territory during the 11th century; more precisely, in 1071, the Turks, called Seldjoukides (Persianate Muslim dynasty), arriving from Central Asia, defeated  the byzantine armies at Malazgirt and opened the doors towards Anatolia. Synthetically and over time, the entrance of the Turks in Anatolia triggered three consequences for the socio-cultural history of minor-Asia: the obliteration of the byzantine civilization and, as a result, the drop of Christianism.” Anatolia was the theatre of a perpetual cultural and religious mix, that allowed, amongst other things, the emergence of new experiences and institutions blending mystical Arabic and Persian cultures.”

The Muslim expansion did not happen overnight. ‘it would take about 1000 years for Islam to gradually get the support of the populations…” Many inhabitants of Anatolia chose the religion of the winners… paradoxically, the oriental Christian world of the 15th century welcomed with hope and sometimes enthusiasm, the Arabic penetration, denouncing the centralized byzantine power, and most over, the expansion politic of the Roman Church.”

Now, let’s add a pinch of occult spice to complete the picture.

Why have I been alerted? I have always believed in respecting the course of history; nothing is permanent. One population takes predominance on another; although it hurts, there is generally integration, unions and something new hatches. I do not believe in the relevance of sustaining shame for the past. We must, individually and as groups, meet our demons, recognize our mistakes, repair if the condition persists, and then move on. Life is in constant evolution and it is our responsibility to adapt.



[Wiki, sketch: “The geometric conception is based on mathematical formulas of Heron of Alexandria. It avoids use of irrational numbers for the construction.]

The circle and the square, or the squaring of the circle (quadrature) is the ultimate mathematical problem, having to do with the Pi number.

It alludes to the relationship between Spirit (the circle) and Matter (Square). The dome represents Spirit. It is the alchemical test, involving transcendence and then transmutation, mutation.

The square has angles and embodies duality; the circle is a developed dot, Spirit expanding to enter creation. No angles, harmony. By the way, in the sketch showed here, the circle sits within the square; this is the wrong position. Spirit cannot be prisoner of matter. Spirit seats above or around matter.



I wonder how much of a coincidence this event is.  Remember, the universe is smart, economical and speaks in symbols, the language of the birds. According to the Britannica,  “Much of the Hagia Sophia’s edifice evident today was completed in the 6th century (primarily from 532–537), during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. The original church to occupy the site (called the Megale Ekklesia) was commissioned by Emperor Constantine I in 325, razed during a riot in 404, later rebuilt, and destroyed once again in 532 before Justinian commissioned the building that exists today.”


Constantine happens to be the emperor who established the authority of the Roman Catholic Church. The Second Rome never supplanted the first as the Vatican is still there. The transformation of Hagia Sophia appears as a symbolic step pointing at the falsity and the weakness of the  Christian Churches, Catholic and Orthodox. Pope Francis just said: “My thoughts go to Istanbul. I think of Santa Sophia and I am very pained.” This event also shows the  lack of engagement of most Christians around the world. We do not want fanatics, yet a little bit more demonstration of faith and conviction is needed to balance Islam and technology.


Again, coincidently, Hagia Sophia was dedicated to the Logos, or incarnated part of the Trinity and  Constantinople, often compared to the New Jerusalem. The old world is being de-constructed to give way to the manifestation of the New Jerusalem.


This event is not only political. It has to do with the true New Jerusalem, pushing down its Presence and authority over mankind. The symbol of the New Jerusalem, a title that was attributed to Constantinople, is the square, expanded in the cube. 







Almost funny, QAnon hatches new candidates, besides Trump –  NEW YORK TIMES JULY 14TH. Whether genuine or not, the public is finally getting it. After blowing the whistle for 30 years, this is refreshing.

” ore than two years after QAnon, which the F.B.I. has labeled a potential domestic terrorism threat, emerged from the troll-infested corners of the internet, the movement’s supporters are morphing from keyboard warriors into political candidates.”
