If we wanted to explain our spine with an esoteric symbol, the best archetype would probably be Hermes’ golden staff (caduceus) (image below).
“[…] It shows a pair of Serpents, male and female, intertwined; the middle parts of the serpents’ coil are joined together as in a knot, called the knot of Hercules; their upper parts are bent into a circle and complete the circle as they meet in a kiss; below the knot their tails rejoin the staff at the point at which it is held, and at that point appear the wings with which they are provided.” – Source: Macrobius,‘The Saturnalia’
The caduceus is said to have the power to reconcile any two things/parties that are in conflict.
How can this knowledge be related to our body?
Stay tuned 😊
