Arrow Rainbow

The rainbow body phenomenon is a 3rd person perspective of someone else attaining complete knowledge (rigpa). Knowledge is the absence of delusion regarding the display of the basis..The area, previously known as "Vallecitos", (little valley), was renamed "Rainbow Valley" in the late 1880s, after Mr. J.P.M. Rainbow, who bought a homestead there..The Rainbow is a 1915 novel by British author D. H. Lawrence.. At the end of the book, having failed to find her fulfilment in Skrebensky, she has a vision of a rainbow towering over the Earth, promising a new dawn for humanity...

A rainbow spans a continuous spectrum of colours. Any distinct bands perceived are an artifact of human colour vision, and no banding of any type is seen in a black-and-white photo of a rainbow, only a smooth gradation of intensity to a maximum, then fading towards the other side.. For colours seen by the human eye, the most commonly cited and remembered sequence is Newton's se7enfold red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.."In the Greek pantheon, the antiquity of Iris is as great as her importance is small." The daughter of first-generation gods Electra and Thaumas, Iris dresses in rainbow colors. As messenger of the gods, she flies on golden wings. Iris appears in nine of the twenty-four books of Homer's The Iliad, always speeding with the winds, delivering news.. The rainbow eventually became solely a mode of transportation for Iris, who proves to be as elusive and unpredictable (yet unforgettable) as the rainbow itself...
The Epic of Gilgamesh, who was an ancient Sumerian king (ca.3000 BC), is our first detailed written evidence of human civilization.. In a Victorian translation of a Gilgamesh variant, Leonidas Le Cenci Hamilton's Epic of Ishtar and Izdubar, King Izdubar sees "a mass of colors like the rainbow’s hues" that are "linked to divine sanction for war." Later in the epic, Izdubar sees the "glistening colors of the rainbow rise" in the fountain of life next to Elam’s Tree of Immortality..The Sumerian farmer god Ninurta defends Sumer with a bow and arrow, and wore a crown described as a rainbow... the way, Doctor Allen. What did you dream about this afternoon..Green is the colour of the shamrocks /and the grass on Blarney hill / Oh, the darlin' green of Ireland /the old flame-breathing type with the head of a dragon..The Order of the Dracul, the Dragon.. An ancient society...
