The Quest, Part IV

The Perps

The War of Heaven happened a long time ago in a galaxy far away, and I wonder, what ever became of the losers? Unlike Star Wars, this war ended with the loyalists victorious, God still in his heaven, and the rebels banished. Banished where?

In the book of Enoch, we meet the Watchers, AKA the Nephilim/Annukaki. What are they doing here? Why are they watching the earth? Why don't they eventually get bored and move on to the next world/channel/dimension? Maybe because the earth is to become the Reform School for Gifted Children. The rebel angels are going to school, and like most delinquents, they're none too happy about it. Which explains why the gods always seem to be in a foul mood.

"All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players"

Maybe Shakespeare was being literal. Interestingly, his company built a theatre in the round, called the Globe Theatre. There have been three Globes:

The original Globe Theatre was built in 1599 by the playing company to which Shakespeare belonged, and destroyed by fire on June 29, 1613. The second theatre was rebuilt in June 1614 and closed in 1642. A modern reconstruction of the original Globe, named the "New Globe Theatre," opened in 1997. It is approximately 205 metres from the site of the original theatre off Park Street.

The three globe theatres is an analogue for the Three Ages - Gods, Heroes, and Man. Three Jewish Temples (third one soon to be built).

The Mushroom God does not appreciate being rained upon.

All "spectator" sports are played within a "dome", the more "planetary", the better. Masonic baseball is the American past time, but football is the global passion, the object of which is to kick a black and white checkerboard ball/planet/grail between the twin towers. The peculiar American (Roman) variant is more gladiatorial, with stadiums called "bowls". We have the Rose Bowl, the Orange Bowl, the Super Bowl, and in Washington State, we even have the Apple Cup! I'm starting to understand why the Superdome was so spectacularly defiled - home of the "Saints" - no "marching in" to be goin' on here.

Are "spectator" sports the passion of the world because our spirits (the actors,angels) are "acting out" themselves as "characters" (human beings) on the great stage? They say everyone has a guardian angel, and maybe that's true - our spirits, the Audience, the Watchers. As above so below, indeed.

Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. --John 3:5

Man is the water bearer, and this is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. To be a human being is to be born of water, incarnated as a mortal. Baptism represents an angel incarnating into flesh. Human beings are incarnated (incarcerated in flesh) angels.

I think that Jesus isn't talking to humans most of the time, he's talking to the angels above (their cloaked space station). Jesus says, get yo' ass down here on the planet (stage/field) and play your parts! Woosies!

Touch down. The voyeur becomes the exhibition.

In Transformers, one of the robots/Titans/angels falls to earth plowing straight away into the middle of (the artful) Dodger football stadium, while Ironhide crashes into a swimming pool of water. Baptized and duly incarnated - into the virtual reality stadium of earth.

Basically, we are the character of the spirit of a rebel angel, with our memories (soul) wiped. We've been created innocent as a babe, even though our spirit is as corrupt as they come. The great game is to see which side the characters will choose. "Who's yer daddy?" The stakes are high, very high. Winner take all.

'the object of which is to kick a black and white checkerboard ball/planet/grail between the twin towers'

Mostly hexagons (white) some pentagons (black). Fuller must have gotten inspiration from these... Stargate balls, mmmmm Wold Cup/Holy Grail

Much to ponder.

Gotta go visit Morpheus now, tired.

Great stuff

Good night

Check the emblems of Football clubs, full of mythological imagery.
The use of team colours and the now global sports clothes as mainstream clothing. Which team do you support?
The Footy team-shirt phenomenon in Europe took off over the 90s, real money spinner . Now 1000s of lightly clad knights mingle displaying their psychic sports realm. Now there are faux Formula 1 mechanic jackets and other strangeling garments

Yes, brilliant and rather beautiful, we enact the War in Heaven daily many times over. Michael Chabon, author of 'Wonder Boys' and 'The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay' wrote a really wonderful children's story called 'Summerland', kind of a Narnia or Swiftly Tilting Planet type involving baseball and other worlds. It had all this great number 9 stuff and was all about the Norse World Tree but also Native American mythology.

Thanks for the comments all, very much appreciated.

JK - World Cup/Holy Grail. :-). No wonder I'm recently fascinated by Mr. Beckham.

The teams are like the royal houses, which are like the Houses in Herbert's Dune - each "house" is a planet. Our own "First World War" was basically a feud between royal houses - a family feud, since they were all more or less related.

All dramas act themselves out in three acts. In baseball, three strikes and you're out. Three Ages, three temples, three world wars.

' ... Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions - everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things:
bread and circuses.'

- Juvenal, Satire 10.77-81

WW1 - George, Wilhelm and Nicholas were cousins. George and Nicholas looked almost the same , often remarked upon. Central Banking via Communism offed Nicholas, George belatedly realized his ' friends' in London had interests he hadn't fully taken on board. Wilhem disliked G and Ns dilettante lifestyle and his umbrage made it easier to go to war

Dodger Stadium (transformers Crash scene) is a baseball stadium.
NO FOOTBALL has ever been played there. Though Elton John has, and the Pope! but no football. FYI.
