The Quest To Find Raxxla

I am pretty sold on Hecate ( ya some of this has been gone over before.)

Yup - The strophalos or circle of hecate is very similar to the inner part of the raxxla logo. ( circle with three arcs)

A door that is also a key.... Hecate is a goddess of gateways/ transitions and key bearer....

From the bits and pieces of the Chaldean Oracles it depicts Hecate as something of a conduit between realms...

This gets into Neoplatonism and Starts me on the song of the spheres and sirens ...
Check this paper out: "Sirens: From the Deadly Song to the Music of the Spheres. Homeric Readings and Platonic Interpretations"

To tie things up we go to the Myth of Er from Platos Republic where he describes the gates of hell. (and talks about Lady Fate, which to be honest I thought Id hear more of)

Here is an interesting paper talking about "PLATO’S X & HEKATE’S CROSSROADS ASTRONOMICAL LINKS TO THE MYSTERIES OF ELEUSIS

well atleast its giving me some new ideas on where to look...
Do you realize there is a system called hecate. I just got it in a tourist trip mission. It has multiple water or earth like worlds or something and tourist beacons. I think we need to go over all the tourist beacons and do tourist missions and then look at the clues. That is the other place there are written word clues.

Hecate may have been the one with the lovers destination where people propose. If a person doesn't accept it could be the lovers woe etc. It matches up. I think the hints for the clue are located in all the tourist beacons. It's just a journey to get them all and find the clues. They interestingly enough added the raxxla clues and the ability to see previously scanned tourist beacon and other data in the same patch. I don't think it's a coincidence.

FYI, I think this game was made after braben went on a long holiday and then decided to put it in a game.

I was curious to see if I might see something Raxxla-related in the patch notes from Gamma, and sure enough, buried way down in the list ... "Secret added". Lots of people in the comments seemed to suspect that it meant Thargoids, but since the Thargoids didn't show up until much later, I suspect it was Raxxla (whatever that may be). I think it's neat that they put things like that in the patch notes. I think I'll continue to look over the more recent patch notes to see if any clues might be lurking about.

In the same patch, we have....

Planet mapping of Titan

I thought Titan was inaccessible in-game (no permit)? They haven't put it right under our noses in Sol have they??

Hecate? I'm sure it means nothing, but twice lately I've seen put forward as potentially relevant names that appear in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Oberon being the other one).

(EDIT: Of course, Hecate also appears in a section of Macbeth that is widely believed to have been added later and not actually part of the play. Clearly all a big conspiracy! Or not.)

I've been watching this thread for a while now, I believe Raxxla is within 10kly of the bubble (if they found it with Elite 1 tech then it must be within 10k). If you do the math that means there is a surface area of 391kly to cover

If you liked Midsummer Night's Dream, have a look at a list of the moons of Uranus ;)

10kly of the current bubble, or the bubble back then?

It's expanding, right, as super powers increase their reach?

Would have to be back then.

EDIT: Perhaps within 10kly of Lave. Keep in mind that 391kly is bigger than the diameter of the galaxy...
 
More Hecate fun

So Hecate being a triple deity... you know who else is? Saraswati - a river goddess sometimes associated with the cosmic river (milky way) and of course the reason Im mentioning her is the Megaship Sarasati which was part of the curiously named Equinox Project.... just find that interesting

Back to Hecate.. and the celestial crossroads... which seem to be a part of the Greater Eleusinian Mysteries celebrated around the equinox where initiates would have a vigil and possibly see the zodiacal light (dust along the ecliptic) pointing up to the milky way at the crossroads ... the crossroads are possibly also related to Ceres/Demeter through the Persephone myth.... Im paraphrasing from that paper on PLATO’S X & HEKATE’S CROSSROADS – Astronomical Links to the Mysteries of Eleusis.

The constellation known as 'The Field" is important in the Babylonian harvest festival ( .. held on the equinox "Before the sunrise the priests looked for the sacred star group IKU (“Field”). During the day the Epic of Creation Enuma Elish would be recited. "

Could The Field have been reinterpreted as a crossroads / portal ? Incidentally The Field is now part of Pegasus and is also known as the Great Square and yup Alpha Andromedae is part of it.

and More Hecate Fun. Hecate was a Blood Eating Goddess. From the Hecate system we get the permit to the Terra Mater system.
In Terra Mater you get the rare good Blood Bores.
"When added to the user's circulatory system, it allows a human to exert themselves far beyond their normal capabilities."
To bore blood is to open a bore in the skin to extract or inject blood.

Portal has more meanings than a door or gate.
"of, relating to, or being a portal vein or a portal system."

One of these crosses is near shinatra... Just saying. Did we already post this in here?

Did anyone notice that there are now no thargoid attacked systems... I call shenanigans. Or did they finally get thier lifetimes supply of orange sherbet icecream!?
I forgot if I posted this on here but I’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that thargoids are trying to protect Raxxla. They could have attacked inside the bubble from the start. But they didn’t. And they don’t really attack one place, then attack some random place after. It’s always moving along next to the previous attack’s. If Raxxla is a rogue body, it would make sense.
