Metaphysical meaning of Hor-haggidgad (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Hor-haggidgad (mbd)
Hor-haggidgad (A. V., Hor-hagidgad), hôr'-hag-gid-gad (Heb.)--hole of the cleft; hole of the thunderings; hewn cavern; echoing cave.

A place where the Israelites camped while they were in the wilderness, on the way to the Promised Land (Num. 33:32). It is probably the same place as the Gudgodah of Deuteronomy 10:7.

Meta. The same as Gudgodah, except that Hor-haggidgad refers more particularly to a work that is going on in the subconsciousness. (Hole, cave, cavern, bespeak the depths of the subconsciousness. The Hor in this name is spelled in Hebrew with a different "H" from that of Mount Hor, which causes it to refer to a hole or cavern instead of a hill or mountain.)
