The first sun god consistently termed invictus was the provincial Syrian god Elagabalus. According to the Historia Augusta, the teenaged Severan heir adopted the name of his deity and brought his cult image from Emesa to Rome. Once installed as emperor, he neglected Rome's traditional State deities and promoted his own as Rome's most powerful deity. This ended with his murder in 222.
The Historia Augusta refers to the deity Elagabalus as "also called Jupiter and Sol" (fuit autem Heliogabali vel Iovis vel Solis).
In the Invictus poster we find Matt Damon inside the Dark Man.
Having joined these loose dots together I reached the conclusion that the Dark Man and the God of Light are really one and the same.
Regardless of which way you flip it, there is only one coin.
While writing this post I've been reading a novel called A Clash of Kings by author George R.R. Martin, the sequel to A Game of Thrones. If you haven't read these books or watched the TV show then do yourself a big favour and check them out.
As synchronicity would have it the Shadow has started to play a pivotal role in A Clash of Kings and I recently read that:
"There are no shadows in the dark. Shadows are the servants of light, the children of fire. The brightest flame casts the darkest shadows."
Matt Damon's Shadow lead me to Elagabalus (a god i'd never heard of before) who in turn lead me to the name Jupiter (a god whose always circulating the syncrosphere).
Actor Liam Neeson bridges the gap between Elagabalus/Jupiter and the Shadow Man as he happens to have played both these roles.
the brightest flame casts the darkest shadows
Jupiter was commonly associated with the Golden Eagle so I wasn't surprised to find Matt Damon making contact with this giant statue in The Informant.
The words daemon and daimon are Latinized spellings of the Greek δαίμων (daimôn), a reference to the daemons of Ancient Greek religion and mythology, Hellenistic religion and philosophy.
Daemons are good or benevolent "supernatural beings between mortals and gods, such as inferior divinities and ghosts of dead heroes", and differ from the Judeo-Christian usage of demon, a malignant spirit that can seduce, afflict, or possess humans. To distinguish the classical Greek concept from its later Christian interpretation, it is usually anglicized as either daemon or daimon rather than demon.
Hesiod's Theogony relates how the men of the Golden Age were transmuted into daimones by the will of Zeus, to serve as ineffable guardians of mortals, whom they might serve by their benevolence. In similar ways, the daimon of a venerated hero or a founder figure, located in one place by the construction of a shrine rather than left unburied to wander, would confer good fortune and protection on those who stopped to offer respect. Daemones were not considered evil.
So let's remove any fear from the Daemon by making it clear that it's not to be mistaken for the Demons you might find in horror movies. It's not going to take over your body and make your head spin and spew pea soup. It's not going to descend from the dark rafters and tear your head off before pissing on your twitching corpse. There's really no thing to fear when it comes to the Daemon.
The Daemon = No Demon
The original neutral Greek word "daimon" does not carry the negative connotation initially understood by implementation of the Koine (Hellenistic and New Testament Greek) δαιμόνιον (daimonion), and was originally intended to denote a spirit or spiritual being.
This all syncs nicely considering Damon starred in this movie.
After the time of Plato, in the Hellenistic ruler-cult that began with Alexander himself, it was not the ruler but his guiding daemon that was venerated, for in Hellenistic times, the daimon was external to the man whom it inspired and guided, who was "possessed" by this motivating spirit.
The Hellenistic Greeks divided daemons into good and evil categories: Eudaemons and Kakodaemons, respectively. Eudaemons resembled the Abrahamic idea of the guardian angel or Higher Self in psychology; they watched over mortals to help keep them out of trouble.
