Actor Andrew Koenig, who had been missing since February 14, committed suicide, his father told reporters after his son's body was found Thursday in a park in Vancouver, British Columbia. --CNNWalter Koenig lost his son on Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day. He found him on the 25, in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. My heart goes out to Andrew’s family - I also lost my younger brother to depression in 2003. However, being a synch detective is sometimes a bit like being a triage surgeon - you have to put your personal emotions aside - and get to work.
Andrew Koenig played Richard “Boner” Stabone on TV’s “Growing Pains”, nicely summed up by wklaus23 in the comments at the Secret Sun:
So "boner" went missing, and now "boner" has been found. Osiris is whole again. Things are about to get interesting...This is exactly the same conclusion I came to after the America’s Cup series - Osiris is whole again. Remember that Osiris was cut into 14 pieces (archetypes), and these have all been found except for one - his missing phallus. Feb. 14 is the feast day of St. Valentine (AKA Eros, the God of erotic love). Andrew was 41, the inverse of 14. Koenig means “king”.
This convergence got me to thinking about the elder Koenig, who played the endearing Pavel Chekov in Star Trek TOS. He was forever confusing V’s and W’s, and perhaps his most memorable line was in Star Trek IV, “The Voyage Home”, and his requests for “nuclear wessels”.
Star Trek IV was set in 1980’s San Francisco, where they were trying to get a whale back to the 23rd century in order to save earth, yet again. The crew and Osiris/Dionysus resonating Captain Kirk are flying a Klingon Bird of Prey, which they keep in Golden Gate Park, with the cloaking device activated. “Revealing the invisible” is a strong theme in the film, the giant Horus symbol suddenly appears to whaling poachers, Scotty makes “transparent aluminum” for the whale tank.
Golden Gate Park is also a notorious gay cruising area, a place where men still gather for "whale hunting", and to share erotic love. It is mostly done “under cover”, or in other words, under a “cloaking device”. Just like the hidden bird of Horus, hidden to everyone except those who know it’s there. Vancouver’s Stanley Park is also a notorious gay cruising ground, which means it holds a hidden bird of erotic prey, or at least it did, until Andrew was found there. Somehow, I think the Cloaking Device has been de-activated. God's underwear just gave way.
Giving the Bird
Whales are mythically Leviathan, a great beast of the subconscious - often aligned with concepts of fate, God or the Id. See Moby Dick for example. Whales are also synched with phallic, masculine power, Moby Dick was a SPERM whale. Whales are also symbolically sacrificial in nature, being hunted to the brink of extinction. Unlike that other monster of the deep, the Kraken (the sperm whale’s favorite prey, BTW) the whale is useful, and sometime even friendly to man.
So I have all these symbolic pointers to San Francisco, but also to Vancouver. I was thinking how it would be perfect timing if some kind of whale story were pointed toward Vancouver right about now (I was thinking some kind of stranding, or perhaps the Japanese), but what actually happened was that an Orca "bull" in a Florida Sea World drowned his trainer on Feb. 24th, in front of a horrified audience!? Is this "whale" tired of playing the clown? Free Willy indeed.
The whale was named Tilicum, which means “friends” or “relatives” in NW Coast Chinook jargon. We have a ferry boat named Tillicum on Puget Sound, and naturally, I’m in with the San Juan Island whale watching crowd since we lived there in 2002, a boat captain is even the godfather of Oliver, our Oztralian terrier! (dogfather?)
I think things are about to get very interesting indeed, and keep your all seeing eye on Vancouver.
