Jol on Chiemsee Cauldron

Note the two depicted six-spoke wheels:



The Chiemsee Cauldron is a gold cauldron found at the bottom of Lake Chiemsee in Bavaria in 2001. The cauldron is ornamented with figures reminiscent of the style of the Gundestrup cauldron. It has a diameter of 50 cm and a height of 30 cm, and is made from 10.5 kg (23.15 pounds) of 18 carat gold.
[...]
The maker of the cauldron is believed to have been Otto Gahr, a Nazi Party member, silversmith and favoured jeweller to the Nazi elite. [...] Nazi documents dated April 1945 were found in an attic in Germany in 2011. The papers, which appear to be a movement order for 35 items ranging from gold and silver to precious stones, were discovered among items once belonging to Heinrich Himmler. The documents list a "gold cauldron/Celtic" along with the name "Otto Gahr" and "Munich".

Food for Silence

 
On 1 December 2013, I quoted:
"Its mythologic-religious character makes the book loved by some loners, whose belief in secret conspiracies entices them to commit (suicide) attacks." (my translation)
Source: "Bedrog, bijgeloof en zelfmoord in Friesland" (Deceit, superstition and suicide in Friesland) in Eos Magazine (sept. 2011), by penny-a-liner Chris Reinewald.
I asked the scribbler for a source and if he knew an example of such an attack. He answered that he had promised his anonymous source to not reveil any details in order to protect him/her.
On 17 January 2014, I wrote:
I found a fascinating possible piece of the puzzle.

Jensma suggested (don't recall where exactly now) that the OLB had made 'victims' (people who believed in its authenticity). Other authors have suggested that it would be a product of dark forces.

In 1983 Jensma acted (main character) in a short film, titled "Stof tot Stilte" (he used the name Goffe Theunis). This film can very well be seen as an allegory about the OLB.
The plot in short:
A young photographer falls in love with a mysterious, unattainable woman who was in the background of some photos he took.
He does not know that the woman was sent there on purpose by an man (fate, doom?), to make him the victim of his evil plot.
He gets obsessed with her and enters a limbo of doubt: Does she still live, is she real at all?
At the end he meets her, but she somehow disappoints him. He looses his mind and commits suicide.
The film ends with the mysterious evil man looking for a new victim.
If someone, known by the group of friends who made this film, got obsessed with the OLB, lost his mind and/ or commited suicide, this would explain the fear around the OLB that I sense in Jensma's book (and in Friesland in general). Psychologically it is a well known mechanism to ridicule or demonise something that is feared.

The filmtitle "Stof tot Stilte" is based on the Dutch expression "stof tot nadenken", which can be translated as "food for thought" (litterally: material/ stuff to think about/ reflect on/ ponder).

In this sense, the filmtitle (translated: food for silence) could be interpreted as "material to be silent about", or "material to not speak about", in other words: taboo.

This could explain much.

upanishad ~ VPPA.NI(THER).SÁT


The religiously significant word "upanishad" might very well be of Fryan ('Northwestblock') origin.

Wiki:
The Upanishads are a collection of Vedic texts which contain the earliest emergence of some of the central religious concepts of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. (...)
The Sanskrit term Upaniṣad translates to "sitting down near", referring to the student sitting down near the teacher while receiving esoteric knowledge.

Silver JOL-bowl found

Last July 1st, an important archaeological find in Holland (7th Century CE) was made public, more than a year after it was found (4 June 2013). The announcement was delayed, so the investigation could be continued undisturbed.
Is this why we still don't hear anything about the OLB paper research; Because the Dutch academic world needs time (without press harassment) to concoct a story and try save its reputation? Well that could indeed take a very long time...
The silver bowl has three prominent JOL- (wheel of time) symbols, but the archaeologist is either ignorant or plays stupid and describes it as "a rosette with floral pattern or sun symbol".

Sources: 
University Leiden 1
University Leiden 2

Some fragments, translated from Dutch:

During excavations in Oegstgeest archaeologists from Leiden University have found a very rare silver bowl from the first half of the seventh century. The bowl is decorated with animal and plant figures in gold and inlaid with semi-precious stones.

The rare object was found a year ago, on 4 June 2013, in Oegstgeest [...] The find was not disclosed earlier to avoid disturbance of the excavations, which were planned till June 2014. The bowl was found in the excavation of the remains of a large village from the 6th-7th century. The village was located along the Rhine, traversed by various watercourses. Along one of these the bowl was detected.

The decoration is divided into three vertical zones, separated by a plant or tree of gold leaf, crowned by a rosette with floral pattern or sun symbol.

Relevant fragment in the OLB:
