Hebrew - unicorn



the rendering of the Authorized Version of the Hebrew reem , a word which occurs seven times in the Old Testament as the name of some large wild animal.

The reem of the Hebrew Bible, however, has nothing at all to do with the one-horned animal of the Greek and Roman writers, as is evident from ( 33:17) where in the blessing of Joseph it is said; "his glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of a unicorn ;" not, as the text of the Authorized Version renders it, "the horns of unicorns
."

The two horns of the ram are "the ten thousands of Ephraim and the thousands of Manasseh." This text puts a one-horned animal entirely out of the question. Considering that the reem is spoken of as a two-horned animal of great strength and ferocity, that it was evidently well known and often seen by the Jews, that it is mentioned as an animal fit for sacrificial purposes, and that it is frequently associated with bulls and oxen we think there can be no doubt that, some species of wild ox is intended.

The allusion in (Psalms 92:10) "But thou shalt lift up, as a reeym , my horn," seems to point to the mode in which the Bovidae use their horns, lowering the head and then tossing it up.

But it is impossible to determine what particular species of wild ox is signified probably some gigantic urus is intended. (It is probable that it was the gigantic Bos primigeniua , or aurochs, now extinct, but of which Caesar says, "These uri are scarcely less than elephants in size, but in their nature, color and form are bulls.

Great is their strength and great their speed; they spare neither man nor beast when once; they have caught sight of them" --Bell. Gall. vi. 20.-ED.)

i thought unicorns were symbolic of goats which in turn are symbolic of the devil and all that black magic stuff. given how those loveable lizards like to reverse meanings like with doves, then surely unicorns are proper evil beasts, not the peaceful nice horseys we all know and love.

Default Maybe Yes; Maybe No

Cordial Felicitations; XXXX:

Can't recall seeing or hearing about a Unicorn-Goat connection.


Always read Unicorns were a Benevolent and Noble Creature, a 'Friend' of Humankind.

I checked with one of my most informed Humans; Barnacle Bill, the Sailor.


He has Sailed the Seven Seas and themsome.

He says all the Unicorns he encountered were Gentle and Kind and quite Tasty.



And he says the same for Goats.



If you got some info on the: Unicorn-Goat-Satan connection, feel free to Post it.


The Book of YHVH says it is a 'Wild Bull'


The Unicorn does make for some great Artwork.


But there could be something to your conjecture;


In the Book of Yahweh (bible) the Hebrew Tribes Founded a Kingdom in Canaan, they called this Kingdom: Yahdah (I will praise Yahweh).


The Kingdom of Yahdahs' Symbol is a: Lyon

TIME PASSES


Discord arises in the Kingdom of Yahdah and some of the Tribes Split and form a new Kingdom called: Yisrayl; their Symbol is: The Unicorn


Some people consider the Kingdom of Yisrayl to be Apostate, as falling away from Yahwehs Doctrines.



Notice: on Englands Coat of Arms; there is a Rampant Lyon and Rampant Unicorn

I can possibly see the Unicorn, by being Symbol of Yisrayl, representing the Tree of Righteousness and Evil, Satans Way,

but, then I remember.



The Unicorn, like everything in the Universe, is a creation of YHVH.

So the Unicorn is Innocent & Pure


The Carnal Mis-Use of the Unicorns Magnificent Visage by Carnal Humans and Carnal Inter-Dimensional and Inter-Galactic Entities, in no way reflects upon the Innate Nobility of the Unicorn, The Lord of All Beasts!!

Of Course, that is only my conjecture.


Good Question!

Yes, but in the royal Seal the Unicorn is chained to the Lion of England, symbolising the dominion of Scotland by England.
The Unicorn is the magical beast of Scotland as the Hare is the magikal beast of England. I don't know what the animals for Wales or Ireland are.

Smile Thank You!

Cordial Felicitations Jp13:

Thats an interesting peice of information.

Often, the General Public is not Aware of the actual 'Meaning' of the Images before us.

I have read or seen conjectures the two beasts represented the Two Kingdoms of the Yahdaim (Hebrews).

There is also the assertion the Royal Family is descended from the line of King David.

I am going now to re-view this peice with: 'New Eyes'


Thank You again jp13, &

Snoops luvs Horsies also , almost Posted an Article about the Horsies of the Carmague, A marshy Region, by the Sea in Provence.

I cannot Blame the Unicorn, or Dis-Trust the Unicorn because some Charlataines usurp and mis-use the Unicorns Noble Countenance.


Personally, Snoops would trust a Komodo Dragon more than many Humans.

It's the old: 'Wanton Hand of Man Attempt to Defile that which is Innately Good', never works.


But thank for the imput.


Anything, Positive or Negative, about Unicorns is

Default Cyan-oth-ece

April 28, 2008
Single-celled bacterium works 24-7, converting light to energy by day, moonlighting at night



Cyanothece is a unicellular bacterium that can capture energy from light and also fix atmospheric nitrogen. As part of a daily diurnal cycle, Cyanothece stores the products of photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation so that they can be used at the proper time. This ability makes Cyanothece an ideal system to understand how a unicellular organism balances and regulates complex processes in the same cell. Image courtesy of The Pakrasi Lab


Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have gained the first detailed insight into the way circadian rhythms govern global gene expression in Cyanothece, a type of cyanobacterium (blue-green algae) known to cycle between photosynthesis during the day and nitrogen fixation at night.

In general, this study shows that during the day, Cyanothece increases expression of genes governing photosynthesis and sugar production, as expected. At night, however, Cyanothece ramps up the expression of genes governing a surprising number of vital processes, including energy metabolism, nitrogen fixation, respiration, the translation of messenger RNA (mRNA) to proteins and the folding of these proteins into proper configurations.

The findings have implications for energy production and storage of clean, alternative biofuels.

The study was published in the April online issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. The research was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy in the context of a Biology Grand Challenge project administered by the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

Bacterial biological clock

"One of the mysteries in cellular physiology is this business of rhythm," said Himadri Pakrasi, Ph.D., the George William and Irene Koechig Freiberg Professor in Arts & Sciences and lead investigator of this project. "Circadian rhythm controls many physiological processes in higher organisms, including plants and people. Cyanothece are of great interest because, even though one cell lives less than a day, dividing every 10 to 14 hours, together they have a biological clock telling them when to do what over a 24-hour period. In fact, cyanobacteria are the only bacteria known to have a circadian behavior."

Why does such a short-lived, single-celled organism care what time it is? The answer, according to this study, is that the day-night cycle has a tremendous impact on the cell's physiology, cycling on and off many vital metabolic processes, not just the obvious ones.

Among the obvious cycling processes are photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation. It is difficult for one cell to perform these two functions because the processes are at odds with one another. Fixing nitrogen requires nitrogenase, a catalyst that helps the chemical reaction move forward. Unhelpfully, the oxygen produced by photosynthesis degrades nitrogenase, making nitrogen fixation difficult or impossible in photosynthetic organisms.

Other filamentous cyanobacteria perform photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation in different, separate cells. As a single-celled bacterium, however, Cyanothece cannot separate these antagonistic processes in space. But it can separate them in time.

Agreeing with previous studies, this study found that Cyanothece genes for photosynthesis turn on during the day and genes for nitrogen fixation turn on at night. The surprise is the tremendous impact the day-night cycle has on the overall physiology of the cell.

"It goes far beyond just the aspects of nitrogen fixation and photosynthesis," said Pakrasi, who also directs Washington University's International Center for Advanced Renewable Energy and Sustainability (I-CARES) to encourage and coordinate university-wide and external collaborative research in the areas of renewable energy and sustainability — including biofuels, carbon dioxide mitigation and coal-related issues. The university will invest more than $55 million in the initiative.

Cyanothece's 'Dark Period'

To see the effect of day-night cycles on the overall physiology of Cyanothece, lead author Jana Stöckel, Ph.D., Washington University post-doctoral researcher, and other members of this research team examined the expression of 5,000 genes, measuring the amount of messenger RNA for each gene in alternating dark and light periods over 48 hours. At a given time, the mRNA levels indicated what the cells were doing. For example, when the researchers identified high levels of many mRNAs encoding various protein components of the nitrogenase enzyme, they knew that the cells were fixing nitrogen at that time, in this case, during the dark periods.

Of the 5,000 genes studied, nearly 30 percent cycled on and off with changing light and dark periods. These particular genes, the study found, also govern major metabolic processes. Therefore, the cycling of mRNA transcription, Pakrasi said, "provides deep insight into the physiological behavior of the organism — day and night."

During the day, Cyanothece busies itself with photosynthesis. Using energy from sunlight, carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and water, Cyanothece produces glucose, a sugar it stores in glycogen granules, filling its chemical gas tank. At night, the Cyanothece ramps up production of nitrogenase to fix nitrogen, as expected. Since nitrogen fixation requires a lot of energy, Cyanothece uses the glycogen stored through a process called respiration. Because respiration requires oxygen, the cells conveniently use up this by-product of photosynthesis, likely helping to protect nitrogenase from degradation.

Through this cyclic expression of genes, Cyanothece is essentially a living battery, storing energy from the sun for later use. This feat continues to elude scientists searching for ways to harness sunlight and produce energy on a large scale. With this in mind, a new project for the Pakrasi team seeks to use the machinery of Cyanothece — its energy storage strategy, its anaerobic conditions that protect important enzymes — as a biofactory to produce hydrogen from sunlight, the ultimate clean energy source.
