The Altar - Two Parts Cut Off

We see in the text the presence of an altar before the throne. The altar is shown to have "souls under" to have fire from which an angel takes, and also it has four horns. One would ask "Is this the whole throne scene itself?" We could analogously link the fire to the Holy Spirits as lamps before the throne, the horns to the four beasts about the throne and the souls under the altar corespond to the twenty four elders.

However this is not the case in point, for a sacrifice is offered upon an altar. The Lamb is the sacrifice offered upon it, as it were done once and for all upon the cross of Jesus Christ. We note that the Lamb that John saw before the throne was "as it were slain". One must be able to make sense of this.

We equate Christ with a K4 subgroup of the octal, say [a,b,c]. Then it is impossible within the octal structure for unity to belong to this subgroup if we require this subgroup to be held static under frobenius. When we consider the structure of the octal we must admit that GF(4) is not a subfield iof GF(8) and we must "cut off two parts" (if a = 1the these would be {b,c}).

When Christ was crucified He called out "My God, My God, Why hast thou forsaken me?" In a similar fashion to the above Christ was not "abandoned" by His Father but the Father removed His Spirit and presence from Christ upon the cross so that Jesus in His resurrection could show fully that He, (also as God Himself) could display that He had life in Himself, and His necessary existence as God would be fully revealed before all men. Indeed He had the power to lay down His life, and more importantly take it up again.

In algebraic terms, because unity ("a") is fixed under the frobenius map we would require that b=>c and c=>b for an automorphism if [a,b,c] is static. However the Galois group of the automorphism of GF(8) is C3, which contains no element of order two.

So the altar then corresponds to the offering of Christ, as a singleton (unity) rather than as the K4 subgroup: The altar as seen before the throne has four horns (choices of static subgroup from the octal to which it is a valid correspondence), as well as having fire: It being symmetrical in algebra under the action of the Holy Spirit: The "Altar" is rightly described as the subfield [0,1], or equal to GF(2) (the intersection of GF(8) and GF(4))

The field GF(2) was the starting point for our extension of Anselm's argument to the person of the trinity. It is good to see it preserved in the text of the New Testament.

The souls under the altar are clearly those whom are preserved in the resurrection when Christ returns (as with them on the last day.) In order for the fifth seal to be opened the system is reduced from GF(8) to GF(4) to show Christ's divine nature in the resurrection also. Those that are under the altar in the fifth seal verses are present "In Christ as GF(4)" but are separated from the octal or GF(8). Clearly Christ will remember them and raise them up on the last day, and to the Father, all are alive since He properly exists outside of that which we could consider our temporal reality.
