Mystery Rainbow of Babylon

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
~ Revelation 17:1-8

The Purple Reign

Dream 5/31/14: I found an old gay porn magazine from the ’70’s, very poor reproduction, a black and white desktop publishing effort. Inside was an interview with a man who had changed himself into the physical manifestation of his “ideal man”. He said he did it by a long process of working with his “wasps”.

Wow! Do I have “wasps”? Or maybe bees, drones, workers, machine elves, house elves, Umpa-Lumpas... of the subconscious?

Some kind of hive mind mentality down deep? It makes me wonder. So a few days later, I was over at mom's who had this amazing garden box full of lavender, and the bees were busy as... bees, all over the herb. I went into a trance, watched the bees buzzing all over the purple flowers like it was Sea-Tac airport.

I suspect bees like purple because that is the color next to ultraviolet, which bees can see, but we can’t. You can’t really sync on bees without syncing on the birds and the bees and sex. And combined with purple, that syncs royalty. Royal purple.

So of course, I began to see purple all around me. It’s not even close to my favorite color, but hey, if my bees like it, then what am I to say? I began seeing purple logos, purple jets, purple flags - last week, Var and I visited Sequim (sun city), which happened to be hosting the Lavender Festival. Every damn business was flying a purple flag, in the hope of attracting some tourist honey bee.

And I began to wonder if I wrote to my subconscious bees in purple prose, would they actually listen?

The Harlot

The next thing I began to see was red, or scarlet, always showing up with purple. Such as:

And it reminded me of the color scheme of the Harlot of Babylon:

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour

It occurred to me that if purple is representing ultraviolet, then perhaps scarlet represents infrared.

 and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast

“The beast” is the sun, according to Aleister Crowley, who called himself 666, the Beast. Call him “Little sunshine”. If the Beast is simply an overly dramatic religious description (induced by the intake of entheogens) of a common celestial object, then what might be the Harlot?

Array: an impressive display or range of a particular type of thing

What if she represents an array between ultraviolet and infrared - the visible spectrum. If she is always “sitting upon the sun”, is that not a perfect description of a rainbow?

Your truly, the sun king

That was my little A Ha! moment: the Harlot of Babylon is the rainbow! So what to make of the fact that the gay rights movement carries the rainbow flag as its standard? And why is one of the most famous gay divas known for traveling “over the rainbow”?

Curiously, I found this pic at Newspaceman concerning the opening ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games:

Two things jumped out though, the first being the man-on-man kiss delivered by purple suited, John  Barrowman, someone I had not heard of before. Apparently it was symbolic; intended to deliver a message to the 40 Commonwealth countries where homosexuality is still illegal.
Purple you say? Note the red St. George cross adding that touch of scarlet.

It is ironic that the Empire is using gay rights as a political bargaining chip, where in the past it was perfectly fine with the most grotesque violations of human dignity intent on demonizing and punishing homosexuals. All I can say is that they are not fooling anyone, and if it suddenly became politically advantageous to again criminalize homosexuals, they would do it without a second thought.

Be that as it may, the sudden de-criminalization of homosexuality is a powerful thing to my subconscious, as is the sudden de-criminalization of pot here in the state of Washington. I would not have connected the rainbow to the Harlot without benefit of the halfling’s leaf.

In a way, it appears that I am also working on de-criminalizing various notorious archetypes. I think the bees are trying to tell us something.

Dark Side Dawn

Dark have been my dreams of late. ~King Theoden

I’ve been stuck in a dark cycle the past few weeks, the previous post stands as a testament to that. Apparently I am not the only one in the Pacific NW who is feeling it, which has recently seen a concentration of violent shootings - see  Vancouver Starbucks-Telus World of Science Shootings at Twilight Language for more. It’s fairly rare to find that kind of violence out here, being the land of weed butter and psilocybin honey.

That said, I found one cool local news event:

Resurrection of the Fool
PORT TOWNSEND –– After 222 years underwater, a historic anchor believed to have snapped free from the ship that accompanied Capt. George Vancouver's late-18th-century Discovery expedition is out of the water.

Anchor Ventures LLC on Monday retrieved an anchor lodged in the floor of Admiralty Inlet off Whidbey Island that they believe broke free from the HMS Chatham, companion tall ship to Vancouver's HMS Discovery. ~Peninsula Daily News
Anchors represent a lot of things, but in this case, the resemblance to Mercury’s caduceus rings out. Mercury, being the Messenger of the Gods, which is simply another way of saying a message from the subconscious… or an anchor brought to the light of day.

What might we discover by the light of the full moon, on this Friday the 13th?

The Death Star

The Death Star
Chronos is the personification of Time.
Chronos was confused with, or perhaps consciously identified with, due to the similarity in name, the Titan Cronus already in antiquity, the identification becoming more widespread during the Renaissance, giving rise to the allegory of "Father Time" wielding the harvesting scythe. ~wikipedia
Greek CRONUS is Latin SATURN. Time and death, and hexagons.

The Death Star
The Death Star

You can pretty much run with this sync as far as you care to go. Saturn castrates his father, Uranus. Jews and Americans ritually castrate their male children, via the ritual of circumcision.

Temple of Saturn, New Rome
The Holy Cost always ads up to 6

NOTE: I was sent an email asking me to explain the use of violent imagery. Very well: the post is a reaction to the cult of death and violence of empire, and how powerful symbols and myths are used to justify it.

In Memoriam

I know that today we remember the noble slain, and I saw a bumper sticker a few days ago that declared the owner of said SUV automobile was a Veteran of America’s Foreign Wars. That’s a pretty big list, considering only the War of Independence and the Civil War were truly fought on American soil.

So I thought a memorial to the Victims of America’s Foreign Wars, or the VFW, might be good thing today. But I just got so damned depressed, counting bodies for profit.

“I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.”
~Lee Greenwald

Paper Tigers

Earlier in the week, I walked by this Wall Street Journal mailbox across the street and noticed that some hornets were building a nest.

Yesterday was the great Rhody Parade in Port Townsend, where the first marching band down the street was The White River High School, for some reason I became fascinated with them, I think it was the song they played - I have no idea what it was, except that I’ve heard it many times before - must be a marching band classic. Anyway, WRHS is the Hornets.

Today I was walking around Point Hudson and this beautiful blue Hudson Hornet slowly drove by, as if on parade, just for me. That’s three hornets in a row. (and WTF with the HH?)

Hornets make paper houses, my nephews attended a high school with The Papermakers’s mascot - same thing.

“Paper” is the 3D printout of reality made by the collective subconscious, call it the tapestry of Arachne - the “web”. I was thinking the other day about the New York Times, who’s slogan is “All the news that’s fit to print”, and it makes me wonder if perhaps the real papermakers are bit done with the NYT, the Journal, and all that. They might be printing some paper of their own, right inside the Wall Street Journal. Call it creative writing.

I love how the media calls Putin a “paper tiger”.

A zebra, with teeth.
