Godfrey Higgins – The Anacalypsis: An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil of the Saitic Isis or an Inquiry into the Origin of Languages, Nations and Religions 1836
Blavatsky – Isis Unveiled 1877
Did Joseph Campbell read these works ?
I like The quote -“The wild gander is a rich metaphor for “Hindu master yogis,” who in their trance states, go beyond all boundaries of thought and are best known as “hamsas and paramhamsas: “’wild ganders’ and “’supreme wild ganders.’””
Brings to mind Merkabah/heikhalot mysticism.
