The word cosmos, or kosmos (Greek κόσμος) means "beauty of arrangement." The meaning of the word was first applied to creation by one of the greatest Greek philosophers and mathematicians ever, Pythagoras of Samos. Today, the English standard version of the meaning is order, good order, orderly arrangement, along with other meanings you can also find which are "Order of Creation," and "Order of the World."
It is interesting that the compound word Kos'mos, may also have another ancient hidden meaning that has never been revealed, until now. This meaning would come down to us from Pythagoras, who happened to also reside and worship Apollo on an island that was once named Kos or Cos. In various books that have been written about Pythagoras, it is said he traveled to Crete in order to be initiated in the cave where the God Zeus was hid and educated by the Idaean Dactyls, also known as the "Curetes, Telchines, Priesthood of Jupiter or Pan."
After his initiation into this ancient priesthood, Pythagoras then traveled to the island across from Crete called Delos, in order to worship at the bloodless alter of the God Apollo, at the House of Asklepios (iEsculapius). This island Delos has also went by many names throughout history such as Cos, Kos, Lemnos, and now, Dia which is an ancient name for Zeus or Jupiter.
Kos, or what is now called Dia, is a dragon shaped island that sits just 7 miles across the sea from the island named after creation, Crete. This island is where the original Hebrew Cohen Levite Priesthood had originated, or one of their homelands before they were eventually banished from Crete and Kos by the Romans. Back around the time of Pythagoras, the family and people from this island were simply known as the Koans (Koans or Kohens) of Kos (Cos or Coos). The people from the ancient island that was once known as Kos, (Cos, Coos, Ceus, Zia etc) are mentioned in the time of Alexander the Great as some of the most powerful people in the Mediterranean Sea. I have written many articles on the Kohen of Kos such as The Origins of the Kohen Priesthood, The Lost Priesthood of the Kohen, and Kohen Levite DNA.
A Kohen or Kohain; Hebrew: כֹּהֵן, pl. כֹּהֲנִים Kohanim is simply a Hebrew (Phoenician) word for priest. Kos (Dia) is the same island, where about 100 years after Pythagoras had visited there, the Father of Modern Medicine and a great philosopher himself, Hippocrates was practicing his medical craft and laying the foundations of truth and knowledge in his school, not only on the island of Kos, but also around the world. The Apostle Paul had also visited this island of Kos (Coos) as described in Acts 21: “And it came to pass, that after we were gotten from them, and had launched, we came with a straight course unto Coos, and the day following unto Rhodes, and from thence unto Patara.”
The Freemasons, along with various Knight orders working more often than not at times and directed by the Church, were the custodians of this hidden knowledge from people such as Pythagoras. This would make them the defacto masters of the SO BELOW kosmos, which is almost all humanity, since after all like Carl Sagan had once famously said, "we are all made of star-dust." He also said, "A galaxy is composed of gas and dust and stars—billions upon billions of stars.(Carl Sagan, Cosmos, page 3) Just like a galaxy, our human bodies are composed of the same billions of cells, gas and chemical energies found in the heavens. This order of the SO BELOW star-dust of humanity is an orderly plan from chaos based on the heavens which is simply an AS ABOVE, SO BELOW event. Hence, the Latin phrase which is the motto of the 33rd Degree of Freemasonry, "ORDO AB CHAO." In English this means, "ORDER FROM CHAOS."
ETYMOLOGY OF THE WORD COSMOS (KOSMOS)
The meaning of the word Kos is Order, and Mos means "to manage, to direct, or I direct my will for you.” In English, the phrase “to tread in the steps of another.” This is why poets such as Shakespeare say all the worlds a stage and we all play our parts, or in modern media with the movie " the Matrix", where the newly awoken slave, Neo has a cool handler named Morpheus (God of Dreams & Sleep) who calls this world "the Matrix" and tells Neo that he can choose his own reality with the red pill or the blue pill.
A type of man-made ORDO AB CHAO stage or game, where each one of us gets to not only choose our roles we wish to play, but also between mortality or immortality. Hence, you can choose to strive for the spiritual balance of the AS ABOVE light of the cosmos, and live a truly cosmic life with the combination of the darkness of materiality in our incarnated bodies on the SO BELOW as a 'cosmopolite', or what I like to call myself, "a citizen of the world." A world citizen, in a New World Order that has been planned for thousands of years by the priesthood from Kos who were one of the first developers of the true "Order of the World."
