The lingam is a representation of the Hindu deity Shiva used for worship in temples.. In traditional Indian society, linga is rather seen as a symbol of the energy and potentiality of the God..The lingam is often represented alongside the yoni, a symbol of the goddess or of Shakti, female creative energy.. The union of lingam and yoni represents the "indivisible two-in-oneness of male and female, the passive space and active time from which all life originates"..The Hindu scripture Shiva Purana describes in its first section, the Vidyeshwar Samhita, the origin of the lingam, known as Shiva-linga, as the beginning-less and endless cosmic pillar (Stambha) of fire, the cause of all causes.. Lord Shiva is pictured as emerging from the Lingam – the cosmic pillar of fire – proving his superiority over gods Brahma and Vishnu..In yogic lore, the linga is considered the first form to arise when creation occurs, and also the last form before the dissolution of creation...

Linea nigra (Latin for "black line") is a dark vertical line that appears on the abdomen during about three quarters of all pregnancies.. The brownish streak is usually about a centimeter in width. The line runs vertically along the midline of the abdomen from the pubis to the umbilicus, but can also run from the pubis to the top of the abdomen..Raphe (from Greek ραφή "suture") has several different meanings in science..In botany and planktology it is commonly used when describing a seam or ridge on diatoms or seeds...Yes, that's right, he's a bit older than you, isn't he?

Shiprock ("rock with wings" or "winged rock") is a monadnock rising nearly 1,583 feet (482.5 m) above the high-desert plain on the Navajo Nation in San Juan County, New Mexico, USA. It has a peak elevation of 7,177 feet (2,187.5 m) above sea level.. It lies about 10.75 miles (17.30 km) southwest of the town of Shiprock, which is named for the peak. Governed by the Navajo Nation, the formation is in the 4 Corners region and plays a significant role in Navajo religion, mythology and tradition..The Navajo name for the peak, Tsé Bitʼaʼí, "rock with wings" or "winged rock", refers to the legend of the great bird that brought the Navajo from the north to their present lands..Radiometric age determinations of the minette establish that these volcanic rocks solidified about 27 million years ago..The peak is mentioned in stories from the Enemy Side Ceremony and the Navajo Mountain Chant. It is associated with the Bead Chant and the Naayee'ee Ceremony... Maybe it was an iguana..It was *no* iguana..Yeah, he came back, but he's not a goblin.. He's a spaceman..Ooh, as in extra-terrestrial!.He's a man from outer space...
