The Rocketeer

Let all the dreamers wake the nation.

Well here it is September already again, time for another Twin Towers post!

I visited La Conner on Labor Day - a little seaside tourist trap north of Seattle. Wandering into a nautically themed gallery, I find two '30's vintage airship models hovering over the arched entryway - one being the Hindenburg (see The Hindenburg Stargate Ritual) and the other being a Gee Bee Model R, red and white, No. 11.

The Gee Bee (short for Granville Brothers Aircraft Co.) was a 1930's race plane, and the stubby (phallic?) style has always fascinated me. It was a notorious pilot killer, and a Gee Bee crash (painted hornet black and yellow) creates the opening scene of the 1991 Disney/Touchstone sci-fi adventure film The Rocketeer, starring Billy Campbell as the protagonist.

Bill Campbell has lots of gay cred, having played gay doctor Jon in the TV miniseries adaptation of Armistead Maupin's San Francisco opus: Tales of the City. Doctor Jon dies of complications from AIDS. He also played one of Steven Carrington's lovers in Dynasty, so he's a bit like Heath Ledger - a gay archetype.

Look close: on the hanger "Big Wow" is the DeLorean stargate symbol.

Howard Hughes (double H) makes a few appearances in The Rocketeer, one of the stranger American Icons. Hughes, founder of RKO Pictures and Hughes Aircraft, was truly a Golden Age 'Prince of the power of the air'. An industrialist tycoon, he reminds me of any number of Bond villains (Hugo Drax?). Most Bond villains seem to be channeling the Noah archetype. Hughes leveled several old growth forests in order to build HIS ark: the H-4 Hercules, AKA the Spruce Goose (see In the Shadow of Giants for more about Herc) . The Goose was the largest airplane ever built at the time, and made entirely of WOOD!

Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. --Genesis 6:14

Hughes was born in HUMBLE, Texas (in HARRIS County), died in HOUSTON, so we have H's buzzing around like Hornets. Howard spent several years holed up in the DESERT INN Hotel in Las Vegas, entombed like a Pharaoh in the New World GIZA. Egyptian myth has Ra traversing the heavens in a solar BOAT, and the Spruce Goose was a FLYING BOAT.

Interestingly, leftover wood from the ARK project was used to build a 36' racing catamaran in 1962 - Toru. Catamarans signify the H and solar wind power, so yet another Chariot of the Gods. Strangely, this cat sat in mothballs for decades, in a Vancouver CA hanger, finally sold last year.

Vancouver is synchromystic Hollywood, with everything from the X-Files to Babylon 5 filmed there. Vancouver is the "twin city" of Seattle, and in movies it is frequently employed as Seattle's "double" - just swap the license plates.

Which brings me back around to the Rocketeer - Billy Campbell. Bill also played JORDAN Collier in The 4400, yet another apocalyptic vision of human evolution. The show was filmed in Vancouver, but set in mythical Seattle. Jordan is the self-proclaimed Savior of humanity, and his "vehicle of ascension" is a neurotransmitter called PROMICIN. Seattle is renamed Promise City - another moniker for Zion, and the home of the 44,000.

Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. --Revelations 14:1

By the second season, it is revealed that all 4400 have a neurotransmitter called promicin in their brains, which gives them their powers. The government, afraid of what this large group would do with such political power, secretly doses all 4400 with a promicin-inhibitor. The inhibitor causes a potentially fatal immune deficiency as a side effect in the returnees. --wikipedia

Hmmmm. A "potentially fatal immune deficiency".

Jordan is the River Jordan that flows due south to Jerusalem, the Promised Land. The Hudson River is the New World Jordan, flowing to New Jerusalem.

Let The River Run was the Carly Simon hit written for the film Working Girl, starring Grail Seeker Harrison Ford and Melanie Griffith. It was filmed in WT 7, and the Gee Bee shows a 7 along with the 11.

"Working Girl" is slang for prostitute, which syncs up with Mary Magdalene (MM) as well as the Sole Survivor from the Battle of Jericho. Jericho (the CBS dystopian drama) is threatened by the 'Hudson River Virus' - according to government propaganda.

Carly crosses the Hudson River in a boat - the Staten Island Ferry - heading for the Twin Towers. She anticipates my own pilgrimage to New Jerusalem (read Pilgrim's Progress). Like Carly, I was ferried across the Hudson/Jordan to New Jerusalem, the only difference being that for my crossing, the twin towers had become a twin-hulled commuter catamaran.

In The Rocketeer, Billy doesn't just FLY a plane, he BECOMES one. Looking at his Vehicle of Ascension (the rocket pack), we find it also resonating the twin motif: two rocket tubes joined by a circular hole - creating an H, and archetype of the HOLY GRAIL and her TWIN guardians. The Rocket Pack = Twin Towers = Catamaran = Notre Dame = H.

I suspect the River Jordan is allegory for the flow of Divine Energy - from the "headwaters" of the Pineal Gland on down, to pool in the "Twin Lakes" and finally rocket out - through the "River Delta".

The AIDS epidemic successfully halted the flow, dammed up by an army of Trojan engineers. But the River will not be denied. The dam is cracking...

We're coming to the edge, Running on the water, Coming through the fog, Your sons and daughters.

Let the river run, Let all the dreamers Wake the nation. Come, the New Jerusalem.

Wow. Wow. Your post has me nearly shaking with sync energy. In my house, we are Gonzo freaks, and just two days ago we were watching an old interview with Hunter from the Letterman show conducted in the Helen Hayes Suite on 26th floor of the Milford Plaza Hotel
700 8th Avenue, New York, NY. Carly Simon is sitting next to Hunter on the couch, which prompted me to tell my partner the story of my jr.high chorus days... and our rendition of "Let the River Run"! So thank you, seriously, for writing this post and knocking my syncing socks off!!!

Michael, great post as all-ways.

Do you know why there might be a feud brewing between Goro Adachi and Jake Kotze? Etemenanki's Sept. 12 post suggests that Goro's upcoming article will lay the smack down on Jake somehow...

Michael said...

Jenn - at your service! The Hunter video is yet another 88 sync, so many coming round the bend these days. I had lunch today at my new fav fish n chips place, and a bright red BMW convertible was 4sale in the baseball field parking lot next door... an 88 model.

JB - thanks, and great to hear from you. I know nothing about synchrosphere politics.

Great post, one can almost hear u tacking and slipping knots.
With the 88s regrettably a plane tumbled out of the sky killing all 88, yet it does resonate 88-HH and aeroplanes
Then there was the film HOAX about his hoaxed autobio. It satrred Alfred Molina and Richard Gere. In one scene Molina stands before a photo of the Hindenburg.
Did a post on those GeeBee planes some months back.

Cheers

Ok buddy, let's play. . .

H is the 8th letter in the alphabet.

8/8/8 - Beijing Olypics, Michael "Son of Phillips" and "Golden Boy" Phelps wins 8 Gold Medals, Russia Invades Georiga, the 8 crop circle.

I know you read the Ike Turner/Hurricane post, so you can also see that Ike Turner's 1rst album was Rocket 88.

Visually, The H VERY closely resembles the number 8 as well.

The Hudson River + Howard Hughes = Hudson Hawk.

This is a BAD movie about stealing DA VINCI art. It involves the CIA, hidden puppet masters and art theft.

With all the river imagery your bringing in, plus the art theft I'm adding, this takes us to the Two Monet Argenteuil paintings that were in the synch-sphere last year (one punched, the other being the highest priced impressionist painting ever).

And on and on and on it goes, my friend.

Bliss Out and Keep Rockin,

Thuth

One more for you. This today from Joseph Biden, in my home state of Michigan:

"If you're ready for four more years of George Bush, John McCain is your man," said Biden, who pointed out that George H.W. Bush was the 41st president and his son is the 43rd. McCain "could easily become known as Bush 44."


4400. Bush 44. 4+4=8. Also, notice his "FOR FOUR more years. ". That's another 44.

Bliss.

Mr Moon - I did a quick refresher and found your Gee Bee post. The Bee man gum synch is great. I found a few more, may post a Rocketeer Final.

Thuth - as usual you sling sync pitches like a pro! Hudson Hawk - wild. There seems to be a Magic 8 ball on the loose...

Jake Kotze said...

Cars or chariots are distorted animal/human forms. A cars headlights, grill, bumper make a distinct face. Cars are supermen..

Rocketeer and Iron Man is the process coming full circle and being refined with the body being the chariot itself yet retaining the human form.

Love the Sprooce Goose as Ark.

Baloo in Talespin flies this same boat or plane ark (as does Indy Jones). One episode is said to have a Hughes inspired character. Still following this up.

Both Captain Scarlett and Sky Captain have those giant flying aircraft carriers... (Bespin/H)

There is something buzzing around here...

Laputa/Mars...

Michael said...

Jake, the Laputa synch is most helpful. La Puta is "whore" in Spanish, so nice Working Girl tie in.

Sky Captain also flies a "flying boat", though his is a submarine. The amphibious nature of these chariots is a standard theme, remember Bond's white Lotus submarine. The Rocketeer helmet strongly resembles a fish head, or Dagon.

Cheers, Michael

There´s another 88 in history.

H ist the 8th letter in the Alphabet, so "Heil Hitler" (HH) reads 88.

What´s this all about, and what are the consequences.

Atm we´re doing nothing else than showing synchromysticisms to each other. But what is the next step we have to do?


Greetings from Germany

Hello Mike, great post... particularly the New York-New Jerusalem stuff. This, as you know, is a preoccupation of mine; my own NY pilgrimage occurred just shortly after your own. I didn't board to the Staten Island Ferry at that time; but footage of the kind in the Carly Simon video always makes me 'nostalgic without memory.'

The allegory between the Jordan (or Hudson) and the kundalini, etc, is visionary. I may have to borrow that one at some point! :)

ATB,
Ben

Dynamo - the Heil Hilter sych is profound. Many claimers to the throne. the next step is Interpretation, which, if you've noticed, is always present at Gosporn. Merely presenting synchs is like speaking in tongues -meaningless without interpretation. Interpretation is the translation of the right brain so that the left brain may understand. Take it or leave it, as always.

Ben - you are always welcome aboard. The Carly Simon video is a hymn, I'm glad it resonates. Interestingly, the back up is performed by the St. Thomas Choir of Men and Boys - Thomas = Twin.
