  1. Hello. Who are you? You have a lot of material here, but it would help if you had some maps. Are you considering creating a book or extended essay?

      I appreciate your interest. Thank you.

      I had some goes at that in the past, but I couldn’t overcome the hurdles such as narrow academic methodology demands and lack of publisher interest. I’d put a map in on the blog if I knew how to create one.

  2. […] Elffin is frustrated. He was there, allowed to fish for salmon for the first time in his life, and instead of catching any he caught this darned baby. The baby Taliesin immediately sings Elffin a poem, in which he proclaims himself “loquacious though not yet able to speak” (reminiscent of Krishna’s comparably surprising day-of-birth speech to his father), informs him “I was once little Gwion Bach but now I am Taliesin”, and promises the young prince that he will one day be worth more to him than even as inconceivably big a day’s catch as three hundred salmon.” https://kingarthursomerset.wordpress.com/about/ […]

      The comparison with Krishna is well noticed. It is the expanded universal consciousness both in Krishna and in Taliesin that spoke. “gwion bach” (small little man) represents the ordinary person in limited human consciousness; “taliesin” him expanded into Oneness-with-all.

      “Salmon” as you probably know is a symbol of wisdom (because of its habit of swimming upstream against the current, a symbol of pranayama in the spine). Achievement of perfect wisdom (tal-iesin state of consciousness) makes pranayama (fishing for salmon) no longer necessary.
