Metaphysical meaning of Tirhakah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Tirhakah (mbd)
Tirhakah, tir-ha-kah (Heb. fr. Ethiop.)--exalted; searcher; inquirer; beholder.

An Ethiopian king who fought against Sennacherib, king of Assyria, at the time that Sennacherib was warring against Hezekiah, king of Judah (II Kings 19:9).

Meta. A ruling thought over the phase of man's being that has been looked on as purely physical and material (king of Ethiopia). But this ruling thought perceives, and is aspiring to, higher and more spiritual understanding and realization for the body (exalted, searcher, inquirer, beholder). Therefore it wars against the ruling sense intellect (king of Assyria) that continues to hold the seemingly physical consciousness and organism of man under the old error, material thought as long as it can.
