The Antikythera Device

One resource I used to research this first topic of the mysterious ‘X’ was Texe Marrs’ Codex Magica. In this book, he cited Freemason Jim Tresnar (who is a well-decorated member of the Garfield Lodge in Oklahoma) and an article from the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry Journal in which they detail the ‘X’ as a symbol of transformation.
In Freemasonry one must go through various initiation rituals before attaining the next rank in their journey of enlightenment. The 17th degree is conferred upon the initiate and is considered the transformation, or change of the initiate. They cite the crossing of cordons as part of the ritual as a reference of the point in the heavens where the celestial equator crosses the plane of the ecliptic, basically referring to changes made over time. This 17th degree marks the transformation of spiritual power into the Law of Love (which reminds me of occultist Aleister Crowley’s “Love is the law, love under will” saying, and it should also be noted that Crowley’s Star of Babalon serves as the logo for his Thelema system which has the X and O at the top center).
A strange, clocklike mechanism which was found in an Ancient Greek shipwreck and is often described as the ‘world’s first computer’ is even older than was believed, scientists have revealed.
The Antikythera Mechanism was found in an ancient shipwreck in 1901 – and models the entire universe at least as it was known 2,000 years ago, using technologies that seem to have been forgotten after its creation.
Nothing even approaching its level of sophistication is known to have been created for at least 1,000 years after the Antikythera device’s invention.
