Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) - a famous Italian artist

fool - to act like a fool + failed + Alexander Pope: 'fools rush in where angels fear to tread'.

dread - to be greatly afraid or apprehensive; to look forward to with terror or anxiety + The Crucifixion of St. Peter is a fresco painting by the Italian Renaissance master Michelangelo Buonarroti (c. 1546-1550). It is housed in the Cappella Paolina, Vatican Palace, in the Vatican City. It is the last fresco executed by Michelangelo. The artist portrayed St. Peter in the moment in which he was raised by the Roman soldiers to the cross. Michelangelo concentrated the attention on the depiction of pain and suffering. The faces of the people present are contracted in a horrified grim, and several of the observers seem going to die. Pope Paul commissioned this fresco by Michelangelo on 1541 and unveiled it in his chapel (capella paolina, pauline chapel).

satisfaction + Sirius, known in Ancient Egypt as Sopdet (Greek: Sothis), is recorded in the earliest astronomical records. During the era of the Middle Kingdom, Egyptians based their calendar on the heliacal rising of Sirius, namely the day it becomes visible just before sunrise after moving far enough away from the glare of the Sun. This occurred just before the annual flooding of the Nile and the summer solstice, after a 70-day absence from the skies. The hieroglyph for Sothis features a star and a triangle. Sothis was identified with the great goddess Isis + "Typhonians measured time with regard to circulation of Serpent (Dragon) around star Sirius... In IV Egyptian dynasty Sothis (Septet) is identified with star Sirius." (Frank G. Ripel: The Magick of Atlantis: Sauthenerom, the Source of the Necronomicon.)

spurios (l) - bastards + "The myth of Set slaying the father of Horns (i.e. the Sun) was evolved to account for the rise of the Horus Cult. Horus avanged his father's death by the slaying of Set, the dragon of drought and blasting heat, one of whose symbols was the ass. The meaning of the myth can be found only in the primal Cult of Set-the bastard who "formulated his father and made fertile his mother", and the child of Osiris, who replaced original stellar deity as being of the male, or "higher", and therefore more noble lineage. Patriarchy had been established because the Father had been discreted from the herd; he was distinguished or identified in the early stages by a totem or clan, and-later-as a specific individual. In consequence, the cult of the Great Mother was degraded and the primal goddess became a whore, and, in the curious language of the ancients carried over by Crowley, virgin to all (Pan). This means that she received all comers and could not identify the father of her children; hence they were the fatherless, the bastards of Bast." (Kenneth Grant: The Magickal Revival)
