I think that there is a group of people who believe something like that, but I'm not entirely sure.

Meg made up The Order of the Bear, but there are similar groups devoted to preserving the memory of King Arthur and all that out there. Chances are if there's a secret society like the one in Avalon High it's not going to be found in a quick google search -on account of, you know, being a secret and all.

i have to agree with you there. like, i really don't think that a drug dealer would put his site up on google, because thats kind of against the law. I'm not saying that tootb is illeagle or bad or anything like that, but things like that are just not commonly posted on the internet, unless there is a psycho who got kicked out of the group or something and is out for bloodthirsty revenge. :D That's all i have to say.

Wondering why it has a funny name? Artor means bear another form of the name Artor is Arthur. I'm becoming to be an expert on the Arthurian legend. ;)

first of all you are correct second of all lmao.

there are people who believe he will rule again but as too there name i have no idea.

i believe meg did the bear because that was king arthurs favorite animal, as well as the similarity in names.

The poem 'The Lady of Shalott' by Tennyson is thought
to be loosely based on Elaine, the fair maid who was in
love with Sir Lancelot of Arthurian legend, as portrayed
in Sir Thomas Malory's 'Morte D'Arthur'.
Lancelot, alas, only had eyes for Queen Guinevere, so
Elaine locked herself in a tower on the island of Shalott and died of a broken heart..

sad ain't it? lol

As far as Arthurian characters go, Elaine was a real lady. Her death was all because Lancelot was a jerk.

Here: Lancelot visits Elaine's family, and she falls in love with him and asks him to wear her token at a tournament. He does, but uses Elaine's brothers shield as a disguise because Guinevere would be at the tournament (which, you know, is a solid basis for that relationship). Lancelot kicks serious butt, but does get injured. Elaine nurses him to health, they have sex, Lancelot tries to pay her, she's like "Jerk, get out of my family estate!, he goes to Guinevere, man *^&$^& that he was, Elaine loves him though, so she dies of a broken heart, and then Lancelot pays for her funeral, as per her request.

Cool, huh?

I don't think there is but...it would be great if there was and some people think that there was not King Arthur at all. Well I really liked Avalon High and a reincarnated Arthur is a great story. Also what was Ellie again? She gave Arthur his sword at the end.

There may or may not be an order of the bear. But there probabaly are some whackos who believe King Arthur will be reincarnated. I however, don't believe it. King Arthur may not have even been real, though there is some good proof, but other areas are shady.

There are orders that belive that King Auther is sleeping and will rise again when the world needs him most.

 

I am 65 years old and white haired, and have actually been initiated into a few orders. The name Arthur (one of my personal birthnames) means bear, and refers to the only star in the sky that appears unmoved as the sky seemingly rotates at night This is the star Alpha Ursa Minoris in the Constellation we call the Little Dipper (aka The Plough/The Wagon/The Little Bear). Alpha means it is the brightest in the constellation "Ursa Minoris", which is a Latin name meaning "little bear".

 

Look up the book on the research of Florence Wood, Homers Secret Iliad.

 

The position of the star as a "Nail of Heaven", the Northern POLESTAR at the axis point (The North Celestial Pole) of the celestial sphere over our heads is certainly regal enough to be associated with the King. The Zodiac surrounds this point like the edge of a Round Table around which sit 12 Constellations on the Ecliptic, which is the path/plane of the Sun, Moon and the planets.

 

The PROCESSION of the year, as the sun rises with each of the 12 (month) signs of the zodiac in turn, occurs as we move forward through the 12 months of the year. The PRECESSION of the equinoxes (the start point of a solar year, like "zero degrees Aries") through the Great Year moves 1 degree BACKWARDS through the zodiac every 72 years. Since 30 degrees/one sign every 30 * 72 = a Great Month of 2160 years. This is also called an astrological age, like the current "Age of Aquarius"which just superseded the "Age of Pisces".

 

If "King Auther is sleeping and will rise again when the world needs him most..."

 

then you may expect the next incarnation of the ruler of the age to come at the beginning of a new age, the Aquarian Age now starting. Call it the Age of Technology, since technology, at the time the Aquarian "water bearer" symbol was invented, meant water in the Egyptian desert... massive, obsessive irrigation. Nowadays, iPads and iPhones are the leading edge of technology, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are folk heros, and Star Wars is a new mythology.

 

This is a lot of information, I know, but the varous true orders of the world place the prececession of the equinoxes at the center of their transmission, since it is the inspiring central story of the pattern human growth over the long haul and helps us all see our place in the big picture. It is just as important as understanding sunrise and sunset or midsummer and midwinter.

 

 

If any of this tugs at your curiosity, start first by looking up the prececession of the equinoxes.

 

If anything confuses you, remember the words of my nephew the Zen Master's student.. (Yes, for real),,,

 

     "Did ja Google it??"
