Meaning & History "possessing drops of rain"
Indra is the name of the ancient Hindu warrior god of the sky and rain.
He is the chief god in the Hindu text the Rigveda.
Jeweled Net of Indra
"Far away in the heavenly abode of the great god Indra, there is a wonderful net which has been hung by some cunning artificer in such a manner that it stretches out infinitely in all directions. In accordance with the extravagant tastes of deities, the artificer has hung a single glittering jewel in each "eye" of the net, and since the net itself is infinite in dimension, the jewels are infinite in number. There hang the jewels, glittering like stars in the first magnitude, a wonderful sight to behold. If we now arbitrarily select one of these jewels for inspection and look closely at it, we will discover that in its polished surface there are reflected all the other jewels in the net, infinite in number. Not only that, but each of the jewels reflected in this one jewel is also reflecting all the other jewels, so that there is an infinite reflecting process occurring"

(i've glimpsed the realm described above. amazing description of an experience barely describable.)
(Clues to the "phi" "arc" "fractal" nature of "Indra": "king of the gods" yet spiraling away from wholeness)
"The Upanishads, Hindu sacred texts, tell us that after slaying/raising the great snake, Vritra, Indra is understandably puffed up with pride. He ascends a great mountain and decides to build a palace worthy of such a great hero as himself. But the construction of the building just goes on and on. The head carpenter to the gods realizes he has signed on to an eternal contract. Clearly something must be done to whittle Indra down to size.
Upon consultation with Brahma, the god of creation, a curious plot is played out. A mysterious messenger appears at the palace door one day, and Indra proceeds to show him around the new construction. The messenger is properly impressed and remarks that this is certainly the finest palace any Indra has ever built. Indra is understandably confused. Any Indra? He thought he was the only one. The messenger from Brahma draws Indra's attention to a procession of ants walking in formation over the palace floor. "Those ants," he says, "are all former Indras!""
(this next excerpt is loaded with strange clues and info but doesn't the "battle" with Vritra sound like an allegory for raising kundalini?)
Indra is the Vedic god of rain and thunder. He is king of the gods in the Rig Veda, ranking next to Agni. The Rig Veda also describes him as the great warrior, and leader of the Aryans, who crumbles the humble earthworks of the black, snub-nosed, "primitive," of the land, loots the treasure houses of the "godless," and "frees the rivers (a phrase taken to mean the breaking down of dams and levees). It seems that Indra was originally a clan chief who was deified and over the centuries took on attributes of gods. At the height of the Vedic period he was a violent, hard-drinking Bronze Age barbarian; later on though he dropped to the second rank of the gods, his place ironically being taken by Krishna, a gentler god.
In early Vedic history Indra was thought of as a sky god. He gained his position by (depending on the version translated) slaying or raising Vrtra, or Ahi, the serpent of drought, who swallowed the cosmic waters and lay in coils around the mountains. Indra's decisive thunderbolt split the stomach of Ahi, releasing the waters, generating life, and liberating the dawn.

Wonderful research here, just saw this.
Indeed... thank you...
a reflection of the resistance's eye-opening instruction. thank you to all of you too.
also noticed, "INDRA" <anagram> "DRAIN". "DRAIN" as in a downward spiral. Down the rabbit hole once again. also, notice how "Indradhanus" (sankskrit for indra's bow or rainbow) sounds basically the same as "androgynous" when spoken aloud.
