I’ve had my eye on the horizon ever since the Horus resonating BMW Oracle trimaran won the 33rd America’s Cup, back in February - read Horizon Job. “Horus in the Horizon” AKA the Rising Sun/Son. Combine Deepwater Horizon with a green and yellow sun and well... let The Secret Sun do the heavy semiotic lifting: 17, the Green Sun and Deepwater on the Horizon.
Fascinated by the idea of a submarine bird of prey, I happened to spy an Osprey flying overhead last weekend. The Osprey (Pandion haliaetus), sometimes known as the sea hawk or fish eagle, is a diurnal, fish-eating bird of prey. Ospreys have the ability to hover like a helicopter, which is probably the reason the Boeing tilt-rotor is called the V-22 Osprey. Anyway, Seattle is home to the Seahawks pro football team.
June 11 was the 100th birthday of Jacques Cousteau, and here is the Commander in front of his iconic diving saucer, or solar submarine.
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea’s Flying Sub, on the horizon, looking a lot like a nuclear-powered Manta ray. Rays are “bird shaped” fish. If birds can swim, than fish can fly! Here’s a Manta, on take off:
The Cousteau research vessel was the famous Calypso: Calypso (Greek: Καλυψώ Kalypsō) was a sea goddess in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of the Titan Atlas, and is also known as Atlantis (Ατλαντίς) in ancient Greek.
Interestingly, the French have recently discovered the remains of an ancient city on the sea floor, in the Western Caribbean.
When you join the Cousteau Society, you can wear their iconic “red watch cap” - here’s the other red cap:
According to Ron Howard’s ‘Cocoon’, (read Atlantis, Lost and Found) Atlantis was originally founded by aliens who came to earth in mushroom shaped flying saucers. Atlantis was somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of St. Petersburg, FL. The old folks lived at Sunny Shores Retirement Community, that is, before they board the Manta III, to be born again in a ‘fly cap’. Screenshots from film:
We’d been storing some furniture in the basement for a friend who had moved to California, and he finally arranged for shipment. The truck arrived on Thursday, the 17th, and naturally, it was from Sunrise Freight, with a big rising sun logo on the side.
