Bro Russell, you mention Black/Brown skinned Gods etc being changed to another colour, (I too have always seen Osiris, whatever height he may have been depicted, as Green and Krishna as Blue).
The Egyptians considered that their civilisation originated in Nubia or Kush; The original seat of Amun was thought to be the sacred mountain at Gebel Barkal near Meroë (earlier called Saba); The original Medjay guards were also from Kush; as was the negroid Twenty-fifth Dynasty.
In the face of the Assyrian invasion, the 25th Dynasty retreated back to Kush, from where they ruled in Egyptian style for hundreds of years into the present era (C.E.). Indeed, they did not so much cease to exist as they were forced further south, where they merged with and added legitimacy to the Axumite Kingdom of the Ethiopian Empire, which persisted up until 1975, with the death of Emperor Haile Selassie (an Imperial Council, representing the several royal families, still exists).
On the other side of the equation, there were pharaohs and their queens, who we know from their mummies as having been relatively fair-skinned (a few even had red or strawberry blond hair), and who were some-times depicted as being jet black. Although prejudiced in other ways, the Egyptians do not appear to have been averse to dark skin, as such (just as well, being in Africa).
Bro. Russell, Looking at the illustration above has made me realise something. It is definitely certain proof that Osiris was a human / plant hybrid, no suggestion of allegory or of artistic licence or convention should be entertained. Let's chuck Ockham's Razor out the window and go with the most absurd theory, because we can.

I suggest that the Green Knight is testing the purity of heart. This might be confirned by the colour of a healthy nature spirit of the heart chakra which is typically a new leaf green.
If new leaf green is the natural colour for the heart entity that might be a veiling of the heart as the source of all life
As "Osiris was to the Egyptians the god-man who suffered, and died, and rose again, and reigned eternally in heaven " it may well be that the green of Osiris has 2 meanings. one as the open-hearted saviour and the external form of renewal in nature
So there may be a direct connection between Osiris and the green knight - not so much historically as energetically
If the dark skinned peoples were thought of as inferior, as related above, might this not add fuel to Zacariah Sitchins interpretation of the Sumarian Tablets, which tells us how earth man had the brawn and the 'visitors' had the brains. To gain a more effective workforce the 'visitors' purposely interbred. Keeping in mind that the tablets state that this happened in Africa, earth man there would have been dark skinned. So brawn was seen as black and brains as white. (Mind you a lot of fair maidens still think brawn is still neanderthal ;D )
The above proposition is based on the 'visitors' being fair skinned, and I cannot remember now what the tablets said on than. Maybe they were green
Re: the chakras... I was taken on a tour of one of mine once. It was cone shaped as in the usual illustrations, but there were two colours, one the most beautiful rose colour which radiated from the spinal end outwards in a circular fashion, but it had flecks of gold spinning around here and there within the rose colour. It was really beautiful to watch. I knew this to be my heart chakra.
Upon checking I found that the heart chakra was green, so I was somewhat confused. It was only years later that I read that each chakra radiates the whole spectrum and the designated colours change depending on the point of viewing. (Sorry about that jumbled sentance, hard to explain).

The Ancient: sbs59: Were you suspended for non payment of dues? if so, square up and petition the lodge for a restatement vote. If your dues are current, your still a member. In this case, it is all about the Benjamins.
