RR Crossing

I've been scouting locations for the next Masonic ritual, and this place seems like it should be shortlisted: Crossroads Mall in Bellevue, WA. The black and white tracing board theme is repeated relentlessly throughout, and the place even features a giant chess set.

Added 4/4/08:

Crossroads mall is located at 156th and 8th, of which Mr. Moon gives the Crowlian significance in the comments. The latest post at Aferrismoon features the Crowley grid page - which has a strong diagonal element. Googling at Crossroads Mall, we see first, that 156th passes directly through the Olympus-like Microsoft campus, but more interesting, that the Bel-Red road creates a diagonal through the grid. The direct route between the Belle View and the Red Monde - as the crow-ley flies.

See Thuther's Thoughts for more about the recent Waycross ritual.

What with Robert Johnson [ the guitarist] making his 'pact' with the Devil at the Xroads. Now we can up the 'pact'rate to 3 or 4 thousand a day - with lunch.

I wonder if there will be 'blood' left here, a ritual name or two etc etc., and realise I must watch my thoughts.
Its a cafe, there will be rituals , called eating, chatting and maybe lovemaking.
Nevertheless its in Washington , who was supposedly Adam Weishaupt - WA
and coming so soon after the NY trip.

Don't forget the giant obelisk there. What does the checkerboard have to do with "Crossroads?"

its the space between the checks, admittedly indirect, as well as the Waycross thing all mixing together.

Let's not forget that Britney Spears performed her "Lupercalia" at a Crossroads mall - there must be hundreds of them criss-crossing the landscape.

This Xroads is at the intersection of 156th and 8th, which doesn't mean much to me, however I have been seeing the number 56 bandied about in the media lately.

According to James Shelby Downard:

"Because Masonry is obsessed with earth-as-gameboard (tessellation) and the ancillary alignments necessary to facilitate the "game," it is inordinately concerned with railroads and railroad personnel to the extent that outside of lawyers and circus performers, no other vocation has a higher percentage of Masons than railroad workers."

The Crossroads Cafe in the "food court" is in the style of a Diner, which has an interesting history. Diners were originally old railroad dining cars set on blocks to become autonomous restaurants. Over time, the dining car became a restaurant style that incorporated stainless steel, neon, linear rows of seating and black and white checkerboard floors. Symbolically a diner is always on a train, and a train is a kind of stargate, especially those that travel inside tunnels.

Back to the Future strongly featured both diners and trains. In Superman II, a powerless Superman gets his lights punched out in a diner, which lends a sort of through the looking glass, upside down element to them.

Crowley spells BABALON thus, which = 156, also TzYVN - Zion = 156
56 Crowley uses in the Book of the Law , the number of NV - Nu. Something like ' her number is six and fifty', Chapter 1, verse 20-something.
Great use of that quote from Downard
Diners , a wealth of mythology

Mr. Moon, your comments and recent post of the Crowley grid page spurred further syncs. I posted them as an addendum to this article.

Straight to the GATEs!
Also the Cross of St.Peter [ inverted].
'Scuse my ignorance, but what of Goldsmiths park ?

Playing with the numbers 156 TzYVN [Zion] crossed by 8 - which = Ch , the letter for the Chariot card, crashes into the Crossroads and all the black and white animals [ found on the chariot card] explode into life.

Lots of Scottishness - Tam O' Shanter , Brae Burn

Gates - Great Scott! Seeing St. Peter's cross in this is like the ancients seeing gods in a few randomly placed stars. Interesting.

I don't know why I circled Goldsmith Park, except all the gold/orange/yellow syncs abounding lately. Smith is a metal worker, a forge, Vulcan. Gold smiths and tin smiths and Will Smiths.
