Talk:Astaroth Cane

If I'm reading this correctly, the inscription on the embedded tablet reads: "Thou art that and that is all" --Rosalie (talk) 04:28, 13 December 2012 (CST)

Indeed it does. "Thou art that" is a saying from the Upanishads (Hindu scripture) that basically means "You (the self) are," depending on the reading, "part of (or identical to) the supreme spirit of all that is reality." There was a chat about it in the LOC forums once upon a time. I'm still a little bummed that you see it backwards most of the time, though (due to the position in which it's held). – Anwyll (talk) 09:57, 14 December 2012 (CST)
