In Greek mythology, the Minotaur is a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man or, as described by Roman poet Ovid, a being “part man and part bull.” The Minotaur dwelt at the minotaur labyrinthcenter of the Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze-like construction designed by the architect Daedalus and his son Icarus, on the command of King Minos of Crete. The Minotaur was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus.

This is all and archetype, for it is in every man and woman at a lower human level of consciousness, the body of a man, and the head of a bull. Look upstairs, sound familiar? The labyrinth is the maze of consciousness that we must traverse to make it to the threshold of our conscious / subconscious mind in order to transcend lower human awareness, and Achieve Enlightenment. The mind has been cleverly designed to hold fast our attention within this material plane until such things can no longer contain us easily. The inherent pathology of lower human awareness is in the shape of the figure 8 and is symbolized by the serpent biting it’s tail.

Daedalus is the archetype of the God of death, or Saint Peter, keeper of heaven’s gate. Icarus means “I see auras” I-C-Auras. King Minos is the Son of Man, Minos “the mine of the mind”. Crete is known allegorically today as concrete, Latin Con = with Crete. The Athenian hero is the son of God, the human avatar / manifestation of Zeus or Christ consciousness, The – Zeus (The-seus). The Minotaur is the insatiable beast (ego) which cohabits our minds, and rises to attack whenever we get near an exit, the veil. The Christ conscious must slay this beast to breach the labyrinth of the mind and thereby access infinity within one’s own super consciousness.
