      Stephen, I am very glad you checked in with your awesome memory! I’d completely forgotten that that essay is in The Mythic Dimension. (And apparently so did Bob! lol) This makes matters MUCH easier as I don’t have involve HarperCollins in filing a DMCA notice. I did send an informal, if strongly worded email to the address provided on the site for the content to be removed before things get ‘official.’

      Hopefully someone is paying attention!

      Be sure to mention that to Bob – maybe my admin privileges will be restored . . .

      Hello Stephen,

      Enjoy NYC, Harlem, Central Park, Columbia University area, enjoy your tour, tons and tons of history.  So very thankful to you for your response on “In All Her Names”. Not only a dynamite memory that the essay is also in the ‘Mythic Dimension’ which I shall soon purchase, but an awe-inspiring dedication to JCF, and so to Joe. Also, thanks for the explanation that JCF does not control the price of the book, and that it’s the individual sellers on Amazon! It’s indeed THAT one essay that I am interested in.

      Again, I am very grateful to you for reaching out. I bought the book — the price ranged from 6.95 to 289.65!! Also, will get the ‘Mythic Dimension’ now. More masterpieces to uncover.

      Thank you James for guiding us to the book!

      Shaahayda (in gratitude)

      The Goddess number “9” R³.  In Islam too, there is much emphasis on number nine. The prayer beads in Islam, are called  called Misbaha or Tasbih, usually have 100 beads (99 +1 = 100 beads in total or 33 beads read thrice and +1). Thirty three x three = 99 + 1 (Name of  Allah) Reciting and memorizing the 99 names of Allah: #
      Name
      Transliteration
      1
      الرَّحْمَنُ
      AR-RAHMAAN
      2
      الرَّحِيمُ
      AR-RAHEEM
      3
      الْمَلِكُ
      AL-MALIK
      4
      الْقُدُّوسُ
      AL-QUDDUS

      and on and on until 99. But the 99 names are not for the  Goddess but for a monotheistic  all powerful and mighty God.

      Thanks

        Shaahayda,

        Gematria is interesting in many forms. Many sacred text have numerical decoding techniques that scholars and mystics utilize. Fascinating to read about ! There are many mnemonic  devices to assist with memory. Very interesting .

There are many mnemonic  devices to assist with memory. Very interesting . In many traditions the godhead transcends the male/female masculine/feminine goddess/god duality at some level …

          Well thanks for this fascinating information R³.  Gematria is used both in Christian and Jewish traditions. The route to Numerology I suppose?

              It is known that in mythology, stories and belief times, ages and years were counted in ‘sun years’ (regular years) or ‘moon years’ (mythical – months), putting exaggerated ages in a mere mundain fashion. While reading, the reader should be prepared to ‘transscript en route’.
