Erle Frayne D. Argonza

A still more characteristic version is told in Celebes. Seven brothers were hunting and drying the meat of the pigs which they had killed, but, as in one of the trickster tales, a man appeared who stole the food and made away with it, the brother who had been left on guard being unable to stop him. When the turn of the youngest came, he succeeded in spearing the robber in the back, but the culprit ran off and disappeared with the spear still sticking in him. Now the spear belonged to the boys' grandfather, who, angry at its loss, demanded that they find it and return it." The brothers, therefore, went to a great hole in the earth, from which, they had discovered, the robber usually emerged. Taking a long vine, the others lowered the eldest, but he, soon terrified at the darkness, demanded to be hauled up again; and thus it went with all six older brothers, only the youngest being brave enough to reach the bottom. Once arrived, he found himself in the underworld and there soon discovered a town. Asking if he might come in, he was refused admittance on the ground that the chief was suffering from a great spear with which he had been wounded, and which was still embedded in his back. The young hero thereupon declared that he could cure the sufferer and was accordingly admitted to the chief's house; but when he was alone with the patient, he killed him, pulled out the spear, and hastened to regain the place where he had been let down. On the way he met seven beautiful maidens who wished to accompany him to the upper world, and so all were pulled up together by the brothers stationed above, and each of them then took one of the girls for his wife. The occurrence of this tale in Japan," and on the north-west coast of America 18 is a feature of considerable interest.

‘7 brothers’ theme is hereby narrated, akin to those of related ethnicities. ‘7 brothers’ signifies 7 racial families of a sub-race, 7 ethnic communities of a racial family, likewise 7 sub-races of a ‘root race’.

Let us take our case as that of 7 ethnic groups who comprise a larger group approximating a race. These ethnicities encountered another set of humans, who were of the ‘underworld’ where supposedly a ‘town’ was discovered.

In this myth, the ethnicities involved were the ones in the ‘above’ world, who had to travel down the ‘underworld’ via ‘vines’ which signify the silver cord. It’s a case here of higher subtle bodies doing reconnaissance in more dense worlds, where they discovered the presence of other peoples.

‘Underworld’ could also signify the ‘inner space’ of mankind, where hidden are ‘robbed’ objects—meaning, the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. This space if often the place of retreat of any Adept during sessions of meditations, and in that space the same Adept can retrieve knowledge from the Akashic records (4th plane records).

The descent from a higher world to a lower or ‘under’ world also signifies the devolution of ancient human souls down to the more denser planes, such as the physical plane. Breeding new pedigrees or ethnicities were a function of descending down dense plane, after which the ascent back to the divine spheres will be traversed.
