A really good input re Myriddn and history! Several points of special interest to me:

(1) ...the long Templar line John Martinus grounded as Yeshu's son, also another reason for the Templar's very strong
devotion to the Migdal(ene).

(2) ...the 5-layer bonded soul. This is the basic procedure we use in our light group process. It creates a single synergically
bonded group mind/soul and this becomes more bonded with practice. In such a group we minimize synchronistic procedures:
drum beat, long mantras, breathing together, coordinated spins, etc. ...I call that type of unity an "entrainment" group. It is
effective and rapidly formed but my opinion... not as efficient as a "synergic" group. As we do it, each person is separate
but within a sacred grid format used just for initialization and basic reference throughout (we are now using the Reshel grid:
3rd breastplate of Metatron, of 24). This permits very rapid shifts in spins, orientations, flashing between formats, movement
between levels, intensity of energy levels between poles/persons, aspects of consciousness between poles/persons. Very
infrequently do we use a tone for coordinated shift together, and then its a brief tone. This permits an outstanding bond within
an overall merkabah with strong Metatronic potential and in close cooperation with the innerplanes half of the team.

(3) ...the Isle of Man connection. Also, according to Thoth, Arthur's main stronghold Camelot (of several) was there. One of
the 16 fragments of the Cairthur Stone, capstone of Ruta's Sun Temple monolith, or the "Stone of Destiny" was under the
Round Table and is still there as a significant power source. There is probably a common more ancient dynamic linking
Merlin's birth and the Camelot siting in the same Island.

This idea is important to me due to my finding a major Metatronic (Reshel) grid centered on the combined dynamic of the Isle
of Man and the Anglesey Head (Crux Arvata in the Grail Grid). Thoth calls this grid the "ARIAT" Grid and its axis (from the
SW tip of Loch Ness south to the middle of Devon) is called the "El-Rod." Ariat roughly translates: "variation: aarat, 'clouds of
glory,' also 'island of light, the midst of the sea' ." This combined pole is centered a few miles off the Isle of Man and the first,
inner ring is 70 miles in diameter and is a 10 pole ring made up of two countra-rotating pentagrams. This is a major "HOLOS"
or seed format. This expands to create a ring or "Round Table" enclosing most of the British isles including Ireland.

Thus I view the original Round Table, powered up by the Stone of Destiny holographic fragment, as the "control panel" for the
large Grid. This Reshel Grid spins as a vast Wheel "strobing" on the 12 poles of the archetypal temple and Round Table. Each
pole will be constantly down and uploaded by the Christos and Shekinah halves of the spinning Reshel. Although Camelot is
gone, it still exists in nonlinear time, perhaps in a greater glory. The Stone is apparently still in place and functional as the
prime core.

A light group through intention, clarity in Grace, and Metatronic frequency in cooperative unity with innerplaces agencies
under Michael's Mandate, could duplicate the Ariat Grid or Round Table. This might be facilitated by the group using the
Reshel Grid, thus duplicating the Ariat's main geometric energy and consciousness schematic.

Just a few ideas prompted by Maias' comments. Thanks again for bringing them forward.

Blessings Be...
