Metaphysical meaning of Rab-saris (mbd)
Rab-saris, rab'-sa-ris (Heb.)--chief eunuch.

a Title of one of the officers of the Assyrian army that came up against Jerusalem in the reign of Hezekiah king of Judah (II Kings 18:17). b The title of an officer of the king of Babylon (Jer. 39:3).

Meta. That which stands highest in rank, next to the will (king), in the phases of man's consciousness represented by Assyria and Babylon (chief eunuch). This idea, however, though of very high rank in the sense, intellectual, reasoning realm (Assyria) and in the realm of sense confusion (Babylon), has no creative power within itself, no capacity to increase life and its forms (it is a eunuch; see EUNUCH).
