In the beginning (of this article) were some words & these words were good & they reminded me greatly of a 70s tv show. So I cast my net upon the waters of The 'net' & was rewarded richly (note added before publishing: so richly that I can no longer fit all this info into one telling).
I'd been reading an article by Ellis Taylor about a monumental erection with 33% extra thrust.
The former image of a ray g..., er sorry, building, we are tolled, is the Bell Tower of Perth, Western Australia.
Ellis says this of said erection
"The BELL TOWER is a replica of the PENIS of OSIRIS and, it is meant to be"
I had recently been to the city of Perth & had been visually & aurally assaulted by this erection (what a racket - I enjoy the sound of bells, but I'm not sure who or what was tolling that day). My visit was part of the reason I reread this article which is dated 2000.
On the final page Ellis gives a witty rundown on the Osiris legend. I have appropriated, with permission, certain comments from this article & they are shown in sunny orange (well actually I think it's more apricot). If you're not up on this myth I definitely suggest you take a gander.

I roughly knew the story of Osiris being thrice & a bit-quartered by his jealous brother Seth, while his dedicated sister-wife went about picking up the pieces in an attempt to start over. Unfortunately for the unhappy couple, Osiris' ray gun was missing & she had to fashion something creative in gold - I guess that would be the original 'gold member' - sorry was that a really bad joke? Mind you, on the subject of gold members, here's one I found in Japan.
This stood to attention in an area abounding in non-Nipponese symbolic monuments - here are some more pics if interested (I took them myself).
OK lets get back on track.
"With the aid of the god Thoth she reassembled Osiris but you know what its like, you open the box and there’s an important part missing; so Thoth helped her to fashion a magic phallus (said to be from gold), Isis turned it on and became pregnant."
Horus is the result of this artificial insemination.
Well what did you expect?
"Later with the assistance of the magical Thoth, Horus defeated Set in a mighty battle that cost Horus his eye and Set his testicles (newspaper reports of the time say he was knackered).
The gods intervened and sat in judgement. Horus was granted a magical eye and was reinstated as King."
At this juncture bells went off in my head (definitely not the ones from the Bell Tower). Who else had ended up in pieces & been given a magical eye?
Why The Six Million Dollar Man of course.
And did the bells have anything else to say? Well...
They said look at his name & NO 'a man barely alive' is NOT his surname. He is tolled as Steve Austin.
Steven (Steve) is "derived from the Greek name Στέφανος (Stephanos) meaning "crown, garland" - fit for a king you might say!
& then his surname Austin
"His [Osiris'] Egyptian name was really Ausar as in AUStraliA(r). (The remaining letters of Australia form the word trail and refer to the relocation to Australia of the said cults and secret society networks). "
So Osiris is Ausar as in Austin perhaps? - hmm you say that's a bit weak, can't you do any better? Sure I'll give it a shot.
Although before that, my son reminded me of another Osiris-Ausar, as in AUStin Powers - the man who took on 'Gold Member' in the finale, you know the one where we find out that he & Dr Evil are brothers (of course we the audience know even more - they & Gold Member are the same actor - a symbolic triumvirate of gods perhaps).
OK so 'Aus' may indicate Ausar-Osiris. What about the 'tin' in Aus-tin.
"Tin as an elemental alchemy symbol is representative of the planet Jupiter. Being ruled by Jupiter, puts tin in connection with breath, and can be philosphically viewed as the breath of life.
Tin also adds a philophical lesson to life that standing alone it is weaker than if it is combined with another alchemy symbol element" soooo 'tin' needs to stand with another element - how about... ummmm gold -you know that element with the chemical symbol AU as in Au-stin.
Tin is the "Astrological symbol of the planet Jupiter (Jove); alchemical seal of tin... Jupiter... is associated with properties of expansion and accumulation" - perhaps of interest to a ritually controlling & expansively inclined ruling class?
But wait there's more
"TINIA [also known as Tin]: Etruscan Supremo Sky God identified with JUPITER. The Biggy of Big Bangs, he specialies in thunderbolts, lightning and the kind of noises that cause eardrums to tintinnabulate. He is not a God to go to for sound advice, unless you already have tin ears."
Ooops nearly missed this "Tin makes up only about 0.001 percent of the earth's crust, but it was well known in the ancient world. Named after the Etruscan god Tinia"
Here it is in chemically type formula - note the Sn being the first & last letters of the name - Steve Austin.
Here's just a little more on the big guy - go on learn something new today
All in all Steve Austin's got a mighty goodly godly name.
Now Steve has got to be more than a symbolic Osiris because he's got Horus' all-seeing eye & being an astronaut surely he's more of a sky god albeit one that fell to earth. So perhaps Steve is not so much a symbol as a symbolic retelling of a story.
Certainly The Six Million Dollar Man series is awash with clues. The problem is "Where do I begin?"
Once he was refashioned, Steve used" his enhanced abilities to work for the OSI (Office of Scientific Intelligence)" - would that be 'Osi-ris' perchance?
Then there's his boss - hands up anyone who ever even contemplated his name when avidly following Steve's super-human exploits - no, I didn't think so!
Oscar Goldman - who would get away with that these days?
You would think that the Academy Award winning Oscar would just have to be a solar deity with all that shiny gold, but it's interesting how he's brought out at night - the realm of the underworld & Osiris.
I find it inordinately funny to read of the apparent naming of Oscar because he looked like someones father's uncle's best friends nephew. Does he look like any human you know?
This Oscar Gold-man does seem to be a little light in the sporting tackle department, although he does seem to sport or support a byo obelisk-come-sword in it's place. This becomes ever more interesting when we find that the name Oscar means 'Divine Spear' which I think could certainly have been of interest to Isis in her re-membering of her husband.
When I get to the point in my research where the time has come to put finger to keyboard, I often feel like I haven't accumulated enough info, yet the push is there to get my ass into gear. This article was no exception except I've finally realised that I was right in my surmising - when I start writing I am not ready & yet I am. For when the flow starts something strange happens (& I can't believe I never noticed it before) - ideas & info seem to float out of the ether as if in answer to the decision to write. This is how I came upon the next bit of info. I was dipping in & out of the net checking on Osiris in conjunction with Oscar & up pops Sokar - in the blink of a wonderful dyslexic moment he did a cartwheel & transformed himself from Sokar into Oskar (Oscar).
"In ancient Egypt, Sokar is really one of the more complex Egyptian gods to understand. He is often equated with Osiris, or as the resurrected Osiris though his scope stretches well beyond that over time."
And just when you think it can't get any better up pops another synch
"Sokar became specifically the patron of goldsmiths. Soon after, Sokar became associated with Osiris as the composite deity, Ptah-Sokar-Osiris. This composite deity represented the three aspects of the universe: creation, stability, and death. In the New Kingdom Period, in the Book of the Dead, Sokar unites the forms of Osiris and Ptah." The Oscar statue has also been likened to the god Ptah - what a small Egyptian world it is.
...OMG, went fishing yet again & came upon this - don't pass this by without a viewing - make sure you read the caption underneath.
A little more on the male-Oscar energy;
"Primarily towers are symbols of masculinity and dominance. Towers, pylons, crosses, obelisks and columns are phallic symbols erected to commemorate victories and also to represent emasculation... In virtually every culture the sun is seen as masculine, fiery and illuminating. Hence we see suns, domes, towers, pyramids, triangles, torches, lights, tunnels, heads, eyes, crowns, dragons, phoenix’, lions, eagles, spiny animals etc. in architecture and emblems. Enormous energy and attention is focussed upon these symbols; science tells us that energy does not dissipate it creates something else"

"Not sure whether you read the other Bell tower articles - it's a hell of a thing. If you go to my 'articles' page there's links here including the sinister connection to 911 - it really is a ray gun!" I had not realised there were further articles - if you go to this page & scroll down you will find a list under 'Perth & Australia'
