And now for something completely different...



"The talismanic disks beneath the legs of the scrying table are interesting in view of the Egyptian practice of elevating the scryer upon four bricks. It was considered a profanation of the divine to allow it to make contact with the bare earth. Some monarchs of primitive cultures were carried their entire lives and never permitted to walk so that the ground would not defile their sacred natures. This, by the way, is the magical rationale that lies at the base of high-heel shoes. When a woman's heel is elevated from the surface of the earth, she is symbolically emphasizing that she is a living embodiment of the Goddess, and thus a suitable object for worship."


Donald Tyson, Scrying For Beginners, Llewellyn Publications, 1997 pp. 132
