'In the Cabala, a hidden meaning in a word is often deduced by transposing or reversing it's letters, & it was in this way that the Cabalists concealed many of their mysteries.' - Abert Mackey.
Meanwhile in the world of the inanimate, there's been a marked decrease of colour in our lives, or is it a case of an increase in shade? They say silence is golden but speech is silver tongued, at least that's what they say, & in my place of origin in England, UK, legislators have deemed it fit to set it in stone that private hire taxi cabs now have to be of a more silvery shade of pale;
This is no coincidence either, as older buildings are torn down, more refined blocks of ice spring up in their place;
I can find no concrete correlations within the writings of the Mystery Schools for this latest phenomenon as yet, only fleeting glimpses such as this from Manly Hall;
'Poseidon's (Zeus) own temple, its exterior entirely covered with silver & its pinnacles with gold, also stood within the citadel (of Atlantis). The interior of the temple was of ivory, gold, silver, & orichalch, even to the pillars & floor. The temple contained a colossal statue of Poseidon standing in a chariot drawn by six winged horses' .
& yet more pagan curiosities from north of the border, these (not the Isis statue) are located in my wifes town of Alloa, what on earth could they represent?
A combination of the two Hebrew pronouns m, ho, meaning He, & of, hi, meaning 'n; thus mystically representing the twofold sex of the Creator, & obtained by a Cabalistic transposition or inversion of the letters of the Tetragrammaton nln' or Ihoh. Ho-hi, therefore, thus Cabalistically obtained, denotes the male & female principle, the vis genitrix, the phallus & lingam, the point within the circle; the notion of which, in some one form or another of this double gender, pervades all the ancient systems as the representative of the creative power. Thus, one of the names given by the mythological writers to the Supreme Jupiter was appevo9vXvs, the man-woman. In one of the Orphic hymns we find the following line: Zeus QpO7/V, yevero, Zfus vS3poros e7rXero Wag. Jove is a male, Jove is all immortal virgin. Plutarch in his Isis & Osiris, says, "God, who is a male & female intelligence, being both Life & Light, brought forth another intelligence, the Creator Of the world." All the Paean gods & goddesses, however various their appellation, were but different expressions for the male & female principle. "In feet," says Russel, "they may all be included in the one great Hermaphrodite, the appevoinaus who combines in His nature all the elements of production, & who continues to support the vast creation which originally proceeded from His will." & thus, too, may we learn something of the true meaning of the passage in Genesis (I, 27), where it is said, "So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male & female created He them."

Perhaps what's being represented here is Quicksilver.....Mercury.......Hermes.......Thoth? Or maybe it's Isis in her guise as the silvery moon? On the other hand it could all be the work of Larry Silverstein, you never know!
