The Quest, Part II

The Crime


"I will ascend to Heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High." --Isaiah 14:12-14

And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. --Rev 12:7-8

The Great War is often alluded to in sci-fi and fantasy - not World War I, the War in Heaven - the big one. Dr. Who is said to be the sole survivor among the losers of this primordial war, and Superman is also the sole survivor of an ancient disaster/folly - I wonder if they knew each other? Star Wars presents itself as the official record - though it was apparently derived from even more ancient texts - Frank Herbert's Dune. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings ads to the lore, all of which, I believe, are facets of the same diamond - the telling of a great tale through allegory and symbols.

If there was a war, then what were they warring about? Wealth and power? Yes, most certainly, but it was also about something far more personal... it was a war over a woman. In Eastern custom, a high-born woman comes with a dowery... she will make her husband rich. That's why Aladdin's Jasmine is courted so rigorously by her suiters. However this war wasn't fought over just any woman - It was fought over the Ring, the Cube, the Rose, the Grail, the Vortex, the Engine, the Howling Black Hole of the primordial torus. The original Jewish Princess... the pearl of great price.

Vulcan star cruiser. No symbolism here folks, please move along...

The awesome power of a black hole is feminine in nature, and we see the Vulcans use a "contained" black hole as motive warp power in their star ships. "The great sucking sound" is the power of the infinite vacuum, and its interesting that the vacuum has become the symbolic feminine appliance, while the accursed leaf blower is the masculine equivalent.

Mega Maid - Rosie the Robot - writ large.

This woman is indeed rich - the ultimate source of all power in the universe. It is said that behind every successful man is a woman, and perhaps this is truer than ever at the top.

Lucifer desired this power, but unfortunately - this "trophy wife" was already taken - the consort of his father. And so a plot was hatched and a plan was made and oaths were said. A plan of such "Satanic" subtlety and cleverness that Lucifer, the cosmic space pirate, convinced a third of the angels to come along, no doubt promising to share the "booty".

Lucifer is Paris (the City of Light), who coveted Helen - the face that launched a thousand (star) ships. In Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, the Grail was said be hidden "under" Paris.

In 2 Samuel, King David is plotted against by his son Absalom - and thousands of Israelite troops follow him. Absalom inherited his father's good looks (David wasn't just handsome, he was fall in love at first sight handsome), but was said to be rather vain, especially about his long flowing hair. We can see Lucifer's legendary vanity acting through Absalom, and it is his hair that finally catches him up.

We even get this tasty bit:

So they spread Absalom a tent upon the top of the house; and Absalom went in unto his father's concubines in the sight of all Israel. --2 Samuel 16:22

Ouch. So we see Lucifer encoded in Absalom, and also another Greek myth - Oedipus Rex - the man who murdered his father and married his mother. Indeed - all the Greek gods murder their fathers to ascend the throne.

My dad's house is bigger than your dad's house.

From Wikipedia: "Tyrell polarizing his office window." Included for gratuitous goose bumplings, only.

In Bladerunner, we see the murderer and seducer split into two persons - the Replicant (human being) Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) murders his father Tyrell (the "Creator" in the pyramid - note the "ll" in the name) while grail-questing space pirate Harrison Ford (rebel angel) takes the consort (Rachael) as his own.

In Lord of the Rings, the story line begins with the first great war for Middle Earth. Sauron (creator, master and rightful wearer of the ring) is severed from his ring (and finger) by the sword of King Aragorn I. We know the ring is allegory for the Grail, which is the divine feminine. The Ring doesn't fit around a finger, it fits around a phallus - the "Ring of Power" is a cock ring. We can see Lucifer encoded here as well, and his rap sheet grows - castration. (Is it just me, or is Lord of the Rings a total hair fest?)

I turn the great myths upside down and shake them out, because I think of them as suspect witnesses to history. All these myths have an agenda, and what I'm coming to learn, is that at their center, they all claim the Grail. Well, as we learned in Highlander - "In the end, there can be only one".

I figure the great myths are all generally "true", but some, especially the recent Hollywood revisions, are more like a Vulcan lie - true by the letter, but not by intent.

"So what I said was true, from a certain point of view." --Obi Wan Kenobi

Which is the heart of any good detective story. A crime was committed, and the usual suspects all have their story. As synchromystic detectives, it's up to us to "divine" the truth from the lies - and oddly enough, it is the "spirit" that guides us.

Is the print by Dore? I happened to have used some of his of Daniel. DumbleDore?

Wow. And I thought I had talent.

Black is white, white is black. So not only is Darth Vader the good guy (or rather the less evil guy) and Luke a manipulative psychopathic terrorist (as I learned from the Skywalker Paradigm), but now you're telling me that freakin' SAURON is the victim here?!

Its true that the ring DID belong to him... But this new understanding brings about a vital question: Was Lucifer doing the RIGHT thing when he tried to take away his father's power (regardless of his personal motivations)?

Personally, I all-ways refer back to Greek mythology (obviously, since I used to be an integral part of it), and attempt to fill in the gaps or re-interpret some of the facts using SUMERIAN mythology.

God versus the Devil would then be Zeus/Enlil versus Prometheus/Enki. Which would mean that God and the Devil were actually half-brothers, and that the Devil was the elder rightful heir to the throne, except that God was more pure of blood (and much more powerful). Yikes.

Where do you think circumcision falls when talking about the ring of power? I get the impression that circumcision was created to remove a powerful ring of flesh. taking power away from the child..

Michael said...

FM - Yes, from Milton's 'Paradise Lost'. Milton and John Dee, wizards of the highest "degree"?

JB - Yea. Personally, I put Jesus in the role of Enlil, so Jesus and Lucifer are the twins - twin sons of the Father, and yes, Lucifer was the eldest.

Kean - Wow. I figured that circumcision was a symbolic castration, to remind the Israelites who really wears the pants in the family - but it could represent the Ring. That's very good.

Amazing. A maze-ing. This cosmic war is ever present in mythology and I think nicely allegorized in the Norse Ragnarok myth, which indeed synchs to the Trojan War, and both to the succession of Great Ages or Yugas. And indeed we are at the brink of a new Great Year due to the precession of the equinox.

Lucas drew from many sources, Kurosawa comes to mind, note the Great War simplified in the last stand of the Seven Samurai. But Lucas directly lifts from Jack Kirby, perhaps the Milton of our times believe it or not. Kirby's New Gods, the stellar conflict between the worlds of Apocalypse and New Genesis, informs Star Wars directly.

Dore´/Door A. Such a great illustrator, gives us visions of all the majors from Balzac, to Poe, to Byron, to Dante, etc. etc. Note that an illustration is a spiritual illumination.

Great stuff here.

I like the 'll' in the name Tyrell.

Also Tyr=Norse God of Combat

El = Yaweh, Saturn, Chronos, God of the Old Testemant.

Tyr - El.

Keep fighting the good fight.

Beautiful! I was exploring a mystical ‘hair’ experience I had years ago and eventually connected it to The Easter Bunny and God J

The connection arose through the intriguing overlap between Easter Eggs & Syncmysticism.
Explored here “The God Father’

I eventually concluded that I follow The Easter Bunny, who it turns out is actually a Hare…The Hare/Hair that sent me down the bunny hole….

Trophy Wife? I love it………..You’ve stirred me again…I think The Woman is closest to [drum roll] - Persephone.! (I had a mystical insight awhile back)….

Allegedly a perfect child - a ‘parents dream’- Abducted into the underworld to become its Queen, war ensued…though interestingly Zeus trades her off while it is The Mother (Demeter) who fights for her return (through the withholding of her gift) & threatens the destruction of the entire planet………Persephone links the three worlds (sky/father, Earth/mother, underworld/husband)…..
