A Buried Riddle

30 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I’m the place where wizards dwell,

Wicked lair, buried hell.

I walk with you forever unseen

Though near at hand and feared in dream.

One of three with tooth and claw,

Three make one and one for all.

Myth to some, to others true,

I am one made up of two.

subconscious is always with us and feared in dreams. we have the conscious, the subconscious and I guess the unconscious - your three. last line - made of two - sub plus conscious. don't make me work so hard ha ha, am I close?

my original thought was spirit guide. If subconscious is right track, "Higher self."

haha, I don't think this is right either. I'm thinking we're looking for a darker "some-what mythical" creature within us, perhaps?

When I say wrong direction, I mean you are RIGHT ON TOP OF IT but heading up instead of down (buried, wicked, base).

The mind itself?

I'm the place where wizards dwell, (Wizards are traditionally the scholarly type)

Wicked lair, buried hell. (Everyone retreats to their mind sometimes, hence a lair)

I walk with you forever unseen (Always with you)

Though near at hand and feared in dream. (Possibly the mind creates dreams/nightmares?)

One of three with tooth and claw, (Body, Mind and Soul?)

Three make one and one for all. (Only within ourselves do we see the separation, outsiders only see one)

Myth to some, to others true, (Philosophy possibly? e.g. "I think, therefore I am" but some might not believe this saying to be true)

I am one made up of two. (Two hemispheres)

Most likely wrong, But, hell, worth a shot.

Of course I don't know if I believe in the soul.... hmm... think that might mean you're right.

Wow, even better. But, it was all you're thinking if this is right. He did say acronym. I'm still waiting for his answer on that one.

ENOUGH!!! LOL!!! I'm rolling off my chair on this one! I'll give it to Lotus.

the "id" one of Freud's three inter-related aspects of conciousness, along with ego and super ego.

Wizard of Id.

I.D. made up of two (letters)

One of three that make up one (the person).

Animal instincts and lust.

Oh, well, good fun with the back and forth.

Cheers!

Of course, with our latest bright idea... the last line in the riddle doesn't make sense to me. "I am one made up of two". And of course the acronym... But of course, there is always more than way to get somewhere. Maybe I'll be close enough to justify feeling good about this one.
