Atlantis - Lost and Found

Around 10,000 years ago, a group of peaceful alien lifeforms, from the planet Antarea, formed an outpost on the planet Earth on an island known to mankind as the mythical civilization Atlantis. According to legend, this outpost sank due to an earthquake, and in order for them to leave, twenty members remained behind so that the rest would have enough life force to return to their home planet. --wikipedia
Ron Howard’s Cocoon is one of the many sci-fi films of the 80’s that converted the alien invader from terrifying monster into warm and fuzzy, if not camp. The film is all about aliens, Atlantis, and the rejuvenating power of “life force”. It also has a score by James Horner (a synchronystic treasure, that Mr. Horner) and Steve Guttenberg serving his 80’s geekness/hotness, and it was interesting to watch with the angel/Nephilim thread of the Bird Flu series fresh in my mind.



The film includes a brief throw-away scene where Don Ameche and his wife re-affirm their wedding vows in front of an enormous backlit ‘Last Supper’, which I found fascinating considering Howard’s involvement with The Da Vinci Code. The Last Supper is “bible code” for eating the entheogen/Fly Agaric which leads to an experience of ego-death on the "Cross" and the rebirth of the Self, and we’ll note that the Antareans fly around in a giant mushroom, with counter-rotating lights that echo the counter-rotational action of our typical Hollywood Stargate, from Jodie Foster’s Contact Device to Spock’s “red matter” ship in Star Trek.







According to this site about the “true Atlantis”, Atlantis was founded by Poseidon (the “Earth Shaker”); and was characterized by concentric rings and a pyramid or two in the middle; it was originally created out of a flood plane, or swamp; and was eventually destroyed by earthquake/flood in a single day. I'm loving how Atlantis Bolivia features a 'Welcome to Atlantis' sign that is more Vegas than Vegas.

It’s funny how many places around the world are considered to be the “true Atlantis”. But more relevant to this post is how many cities of synchronistic interest echo Atlantis in their grids and circular design and swampy or flood plane origin: Mexico City (The Aztec Tenochtitlan), Washington D.C., Dubai (especially The Palm Jumeirah), New Orleans, Mumbai, Paris, on and on. They say all roads lead to Rome, but I suspect Rome is merely a daughter of the Big Momma - Atlantis.



Of course, Seattle is the REALLY true Atlantis. The aforementioned Atlantis site tells us “in the Aztec language “Atl” means “water”. Like... Sea Atl? How redundant! That's like "King Rex"! We DO have probably the coolest pillarmid on the planet - the mushroom/UFO/phallus resonating Space Needle! We also have Seahawks and Mariners, the Poseidon resonating Trident submarine base on Hood Canal, Killer Whales, the Olympic mountains, as well as Pyramid Ale. The trident resonating black trimaran BMW Oracle was forged in the “cauldron of fire” of the Pacific NW. We also have a hell of a lot of magic mushrooms.



Invoking the Hollywood Oracle, we’ll note that Tom Hanks, our Da Vinci Decoder and long time Ron Howard collaborator starred in Sleepless in Seattle, where he lived on a house boat (mound/island) on Lake UNION. He also married a mermaid in Splash, AKA Melusin, who graces that peculiar Seattle brand - Starbucks Coffee.



Starbuck was the first mate on board Captain Ahab’s Pequod, the doomed ship brought against the Id resonating White Whale. Captain Picard is called a "Captain Ahab going after his whale" in First Contact, where he comes up against his own Leviathan - the Borg. The X-Files and Battlestar Galactica both feature “Starbucks” (and here), and both of them were filmed in Vancouver, the twin city of “Sea Atl”.



The whale is Leviathan, and here is Thomas Hobbes' version, AKA Poseidon, the subconscious, Lording it over England (angel land), esoterically ALSO known as a symbolic Atlantis. I trust everything is clear?



I wonder what Atlantis represents in MY psyche - in humanity’s global brain. Looking again at that circular design, it strikes me that perhaps Atlantis is actually a model of the psyche and the evolution of human consciousness. Human, ego-aware consciousness arose “like an island” from a “flood plane” or “ocean” of primordial Id consciousness. If Atlantis is The Global Brain, that might explain its basic architecture of concentric rings of subconsciousness and consciousness, “Sea” and “Land”.


They say "no man is an island", but in truth, every man is an island of ego, afloat in a beautiful pea green boat on the sea of Id.

All these Atlantean “mounds” are dominated by pyramids of the moon and the sun (right and left brains). Atlantean cultures are fixated by concepts of duality and morality, which is the “sign” of Ego/Id separation. They have sin offering rituals of varying realistic bloodiness, and with the increasing “realism” of 3D technology, I’m sure it won’t be long before we can all literally experience the nails being pounded through our hands and feet to the cross.

Even WITH these elaborate offerings, Atlantean priest-kings are always caught in the exact sin that they most demonize - see Catholic Church and U.S. Senate for recent examples.

It’s funny because with all the Atlantis Rising imagery abounding, I still pray for a flood every night. The flood of Cosmic Consciousness that destroys the illusions of Ego, breaking down the concentric barriers, one by one.

Maybe Ron Howard prays for that too.

Update April 1:

Apparently the U.S. East Coast is prepping for a "Perfect Storm" this Easter weekend:
While scientists on both sides of the table debate the current state of climate change, something disturbing has been taking place over the last 72 hours over much of the Northeast. Rains of near biblical proportion have already fallen across the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Maine. Municipalities are beginning to wonder how much more they can take and just when it looked as though there might be a light at the end of the storms seemingly endless tunnel there arrived overnight a specter on the horizon “the likes of which meteorologists and climatologists have never seen before” said Steve Dunton from the National Center for Severe Storm Forecasting. --Sailing Anarchy
Holy Smokes! Damn it, Poseidon, I hate it when you take my prayers literally!

All the years that have come to pass,
And all the years that will be,
I see here right before me.
I had an interesting dream last night. I was giving a speech in DC about synchronicity and the repetitive acting out of archetypes manifesting in the world, and Obama was in the audience. When I was done, he pulled me aside to tell me about his visit to Giza last year and his intuitive sense of the pyramids - that they seemed to be his enemy. Since Obama is resonating so much “Pharaoh”, that made sense, because the pyramids are the tombs of Kings. They represent his destiny.

I was about to tell him how IMHO his Presidency appeared to be following the “sin offering” Lincoln archetype a bit too closely for comfort. But I held my tongue. Telling the future is risky business.

When the Cock Crows

"I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." --Matthew 26:34
When I was a sexually repressed teenager I used to close my bedroom door and draw my own porn. That’s no doubt how my habit of right hand masturbation developed, because my left hand was always busy with the pencil. I’d eventually create a small private gallery of porn stashed under the bed, and I was happy enough with that most of the time, until I would throw them away in a fit of guilt, and then I’d start over.

The gallery wasn’t quite as private as I would have liked, because one day Chris, a friend of my younger brother was talking to me and he mentioned the drawings and how cool he thought they were! Jesus H. Christ! My own brother was snooping in my bedroom and showing his friends my secret jerk-off fantasies!

I, being the repressed teenager I was, of course denied it, and he kept asking me, even describing one of the drawings in detail! I had to keep denying it, pretending I had no idea what he was talking about. I probably denied my Lord three times. The drawing he described was of a young stud in a fishnet thong, his massive manhood brazenly displayed as if he were PROUD of it! In a way, this blog is my repentance. Peter is tired of starting over.

Something in the Water?

'Let's put it in the water supply and turn everybody on. --Steve Jobs 
A week ago last Saturday, "precisely" on schedule, Rothschild heir David de Rothschild set out in Plastiki, a catamaran made from 12,000 plastic water bottles, on a voyage from the Golden Gate to Oz, in an attempt to “raise consciousness” about the perils of PET to the environment.

What’s up with THAT? An Illuminati/banker FOR the environment?


Yesterday I found this really excellent video on the same subject that I highly recommend, mostly because it explains "manufactured demand" and compares drinking bottled water to "smoking while pregnant". You’ll note the recent “birth pains” of Mary/Isis/Gaia thread at Gosporn. Holy smokes!

Why the hell would a BANKER promote one method of water delivery vs. another? Obviously... for a profit. But how can you lose charging $2 a bottle for 2 cents worth of product? Maybe the "vessel" is a red herring... maybe “they” want us to start drinking from the tap?

What if... “they” are putting minute amounts of LSD (or the latest equivalent) in the water? And what if “they” keep upping the dosage? Maybe we’re all higher than kites and we don’t even know it!

Personally, I think that "they" are no strangers to ego-death - the one true religion. Hell, "they" know their own myths and rituals better than I do, and even I get that "they" ALL point to the same thing - the transformational power of entheogenic drugs on human consciousness. The apple IS the magic mushroom, thank you for pointing it out so succinctly, Steve.

I recall that it was Michael BANKS who wanted to "feed the birds", or in other words, feed his ego to the Id. Maybe the Illuminati are "banking" on a different currency?

I’m pretty sure “they” understand that inventing a new economic or religious system isn’t really going to change anything. America was a good try, but it became utterly corrupted by ego in less than 200 years. Fascism and Communism even quicker. The ego can, and always will, quickly turn Eden into hell. No systemic upgrade can or will work unless the players THEMSELVES get an upgrade.

So perhaps “they” came up with an audacious plan: take the secret of the sacred mushroom out of the secret lodges and bring it to the masses. “They” would conduct a massive, global, Ego-death ritual! One way or another, everyone on the planet would come face to face with their Id.



Of course, once you eat the mushroom, you realize that “they” are really “you”. It all works out. I'm not exactly sure how "we" plan to get around the infamous "Monsters, John, monsters from the Id!" issue, but I strongly suspect it has something to do with gay porn. Once you take it up the ass, everything else is just a spoonful of sugar.

A Doubting Thomas


Sometimes I wonder... did Heath Ledger really die? I mean, it seems like his whole life was lived just so he could become a collective sin offering - a modern lamb. And rather sensitively... even beautifully... done, I might add. But if that’s so, then why not just fake the death too... he was an ACTOR for God’s sake. How hard could it be?

Sometimes I wonder if Heath, Elvis, John and Michael aren’t all living it up somewhere on some secret Templar island.

Sometimes I wonder if Jesus really died. That’s the kind of statement that will get you banned from a Christian discussion forum quicker than anything. I mean, yes, “Jesus”, the symbol of my ego’s death and salvation died. He HAD to die. That’s just the way consciousness works. Ego has to die to its sense of self before the true Self can be found. But the body of Jesus - the man? I’d be OK with it if he was secretly taken down from the cross before he actually died and then went off to mary Mary (or John?) or father children or start a chain of successful Kosher delis or whatever. It doesn’t really matter what he did afterwards, he played the part in the passion play and he did a great job, probably won an Oscar.

It is crazy ironic that the original Christians were killed because they wouldn’t worship the Roman Emperor as the literal manifestation of God, and later it was the Christians doing the killing because others wouldn’t worship THEIR literal manifestation of God.

I wonder if someday there will be a Church of Heath Ledger and everyone will study the scriptures (ancient DVDs of his films) to find the hidden spiritual meaning and some uptight clergy will suppress certain films (like Brokeback Mountain) and call them heretical? And they’ll pray to Heath and have great Revivals and even make rulers and kings from his descendants? Crazier things have happened.
This is why I speak to them in parables:
Though seeing, they do not see;
though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
'You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.

--Matthew 13:13-14

Fleeing Egypt


Last weekend the NYT's "Minimalist" Mark Bittman showed us how to make matzo (unleavened bread) while giving us a quick bible lesson about why flatbread was important to the Jews as they fled Egypt. Coincidentally, Pharaoh arrived in NYC this weekend.

Bird Flu Three



My little flight of fancy has taken me down quite the rabbit hole - from birdlike “gods” to the elite, from ancient ritual sacrifice to Heath Ledger. Now I’m going to try to dig my way out, beginning with the origin and reason for the most ancient human religious rite - the sin offering.

“Sin” is simply egoic separation from the Id. When human consciousness became self-aware it developed the ego, or “self” consciousness. This awakening is also called the Fall, and while a very cool thing, it had the side-effect of virtually unplugging our individual selves from the Id (Cosmic Consciousness, God). This is when left brain, right brain duality appeared, the split between the egoic, analytical side and the Id-like side of emotion, dreams and intuition. We became “two-headed”, and this may have been the genesis of the double-headed eagle as well as the twin deity motif.

As we lost our conscious connection to the Id (cast out of the garden), it began to manifest in our subconscious dreams and visions, and eventually we required shamans/priests or “dream readers” to decipher the symbols. We elected “Daniels” to tell us the meaning of our dreams, because the right brain “has no British”. Soon the dreaming mind was filled with all manner of faeries, goblins, dragons, demons, hawks and eventually... aliens.



The lack of a conscious connection to the “hive mind” created a sense of duality, morality and right/wrong behavior, which lead to a sense of species-wide guilt - the shame of Adam and Eve. As we all know (and maybe especially gay men know this) living with an all-pervading sense of guilt is debilitating and leads to all manner of craziness. See Catholic Church for Exhibit A.



So this concept of a sin offering was created in order to let the ego “off the hook”. The sin offering symbolically places our sins (actions committed while separated from Id consciousness) on an innocent offering (often a lamb). This lamb becomes your ego, which is ritually slaughtered. This “ego-death” creates an emotional catharsis that, at least for a time, allows the conscious ego to “let-go” of its sense of personal identity enough to connect to the Id, bringing a sense of sin (twin headache) relief - you are “born again”.

The offering is then ritually eaten. This is the "Self" eating the "self" - the ecstatic devouring. You are feeding the bird, but... you ARE the bird. You are the dove being eaten, and the hawk eating the dove, the Phoenix, the Ouroborus. What is really going on is an exchange of energy - a conversion of ego guilt into Id power of forgiveness, which just might be the whole reason your entire ego-centered hide came into being. You are a "transformer".

This is a very powerful ritual, and when done on entheogens is no doubt a life-changing experience. Hell, it changed MY life. That is probably what the “mystery” religions were all about, and that’s why Osiris, Dionysus, Mithras and Jesus all tell a very similar story.

As does the life of Heath Ledger.



As others have noted, the movie for which Heath won his Oscar had Batman playing a modern Templar - who sacrificed his reputation for the sake of Harvey Dent - “Two Face”. Batman is an Osiris/Jesus resonator - the Lord of the Underworld. Two Face is “two headed” - perhaps a stand-in for the dualistic nature of our ego/Id experience. Like Spock, Two Face is “us”.

Was The Dark Knight a veiled explanation of Masonic/Templar methodology, and perhaps even an admission and defense? Did the Templars go “underground” in order to hide a truth of which we aren’t yet ready?
“The truth?” You can’t handle the truth!”
Or, are they hiding a truth that could unlock the doors and set the prisoners free?
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." --John 8:31-32

Bird Flu Two

And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, "Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great." Revelation 19:17-18

If the antediluvian angels were indeed birdlike creatures that set themselves up as our rulers and kings, then we might expect to find evidence for this in our surviving customs. I needn’t look much further than my own country to find an eagle perched on the Almighty "piece of eight", winking at the pyramid.


The Pacific Northwest Indians have a similar eagle perched at the pinnacle of their carved “pillarmids”, and recall how the pyramid building Aztecs founded the Atlantis resonating island city of Tenochtitlan - because of an eagle sighting.


Totem Pole in Vancouver's Stanley Park

Speaking of native American lore, the mighty Thunderbird is a perennial favorite at Gosporn (see F.A.B.) and we’ll note that our winged military “ambassadors” are called Blue Angels and Thunderbirds.



We are all familiar with the Plains Indian headdress, which elegantly combines the bird with a figure of leadership. A bit of googling reveals that to be merely the tip of the iceberg, with ancient cultures from Mesopotamia to Polynesia adopting the feathered crown as a symbol of authority both religious and temporal.



According to the myth, the “birds” implanted their DNA into certain humans, creating a race of “giants”, or Nephilim. These “children of the gods” were wiped out in the Flood, but even afterwards a few survived, and some say they remain with us still, influencing the affairs of men from behind closed doors. Indeed, the entire concept of royalty and divine inheritance may be founded on the belief (misguided or otherwise) in a “sacred” bloodline that survived the deluge.

If so, we might expect to find bird (angelic ancestor) veneration among the elite:



The Bohemian Grove

One of the more infamous rituals at the grove (known as the Cremation of Care) involves the ritual feeding of a giant owl. It is fed by burning effigies of human sacrifice, and while Alex Jones has made a career from pointing out the similarities to Molech worship, the ritual of human sacrifice sits much closer to home, being the cornerstone of Christian worship as well. He who has not sacrificed to the bird may throw the first stone!



Jesus not only gave his life for our sins, he even commands that we eat his “flesh” and drink his “blood” in a ritual that on second glance seems a lot like a “family friendly” version of the Aztec custom of cutting out hearts and eating them,  sacrificing to a feathered god.

“Must be blood. Must be fresh!”
Were the Aztecs the original Mesoamerican fundamentalists? Always taking everything so literally!


The story of blood sacrifice to the Gods goes back before recorded history and around the world. The Jewish Torah gets the ball rolling straight away with the story of Cain and Abel and a squabble over “burnt offerings”. Abraham takes the ball and nearly makes a sin offering out of his only begotten son, Isaac. The Jews field off to the Christians who crucify our Lord every Sunday morning, and then consume his body in remembrance. The Greeks have Prometheus, who has his liver plucked out every day by an Eagle for giving “fire” to man. The liver is the storehouse of all the “sinful” things you have eaten.

Sin Eating

The reason a culture makes a blood sacrifice is to atone for its sins - the collective guilt of the tribe is loaded onto a symbolic totem, which is then killed in place of the tribe. This “scapegoat” (or turkey) is then ritually eaten, in an act of thanksgiving. In fact, this is a “sin-eating” ritual.



Heath Ledger played Alex Bernier the “sin eater” in the 2003 American/German thriller The Order. Conspiranoids often point to Heath Ledger as an example of a highly mediated ritual sacrifice, and given the evidence, I can’t argue. All of his film roles point toward the creation of a perfect sin offering.

The lamb is required to be physically “perfect”, without defect. Heath was not only physically perfect, he was cast in roles that echoed solar kings like David and Arthur. He was made perfect in body and in spirit. Then the sacrifice must be debased, because all our sins are cast upon him. This process began in ernest with The Order, and continued with his role of Ennis del Mar in Brokeback Mountain. In this film, Heath is made into a tragic homo, “debased” in the eyes of the world since homosexuality is considered a sin. There may be a deeper context here though, because the angel’s sin was breeding with human women. In a way, their “seed” was the original sin, and if we imagine Heath as a “sin eater” then perhaps “cocksucker” is the same thing... semiotically speaking.

Finally, Heath is cast as the Joker, AKA the devil. All our most wicked sins are incarnated into Heath, when he becomes the perfect scapegoat, and dies via “drug overdose”. Like a Phoenix, Heath is cremated and his ashes spread in a solar ceremony. Later, Heath is “born again” at the Oscars by winning a posthumous award for his role as the scapegoat, and is then ushered into the afterlife by Demi Moore (Demetria/Demeter, goddess of the underworld).

Wow. It’s pretty darn nice of these folks to sacrifice their own children so we can all go through a collective sin-eating ritual - I feel so fresh and clean - washed by the blood of the lamb! This is one hungry bird:

Abraham Lincoln (Savior of the Nation)
JFK (Arthur, Camelot)
Elvis Presley (The King of Rock)
Diana Spencer (The Queen of Hearts)
Britney Spears (The Queen of Pop)
Heath Ledger (The Lion King)
Michael Jackson (The King of Pop)
Andrew Koenig (Son of the King)

I wonder who’s next in line at the bird feeder?



NOTES:

The Authors of the The Odysseus Solution (see Bird Flu) are Michael Banks and Dean R. Lambe. Michael Banks is the young charge of Julie Andrew’s Mary Poppins - he’s the one who disobeys his father in order to feed the birds. Tuppence a bag.

Cinnamon Girl


I was doing a bit of wiki research into Sri Lanka (Venerable Island) today because we have a Sri Lankan family in our neighborhood. Tashara (the dad) is a programmer and kind of cute in that dark eyed, soulful, mysterious Indian sort of way. Var was visiting with them today and got into a political discussion, apparently Tashara is slightly left of Marx when it comes to politics, which puts him squarely on my right side. High five!

Sri Lanka is one of those “cradle of the world” kind of places, perhaps the original Garden of Eden. The ancient land bridge to the Indian subcontinent is called “Adam’s Bridge”, and the old Arabic traders used to call the island “Serendib”, from which our "serendipity" is based. A classic Mysterious Island - a floating Shangri La.

Sri Lanka is one of the more ancient Buddhist countries, the flag shows a golden lion, the herald of the Sinha dynasty that ruled for many centuries. I was particularly drawn to this image of Sanghamitta arriving with the Holy Bodhi tree under which Buddha gained his enlightenment. We’ll note the prominent red and white Fly Agaric resonating parasols hovering over both Sanghamitta and her tree, hinting rather strongly at the entheogenic nature of this “tree”. I thought it was wonderfully evocative of the Tree of Knowledge, and the return of the true Eve to her homeland after a great journey.

Interestingly, Sri Lanka was the first country to elect a female head of state: Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike. Sri Lanka is famous for exporting cinnamon.

Bird Flu


With a mighty voice he shouted: "Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. --Revelation 18:2

I often visit Half Price Books with the intention of letting serendipity be my guide. I wander through the dusty shelves, following the synchs. I was thumbing through the “B”s in the sci-fi aisle hoping for an Iain Banks “Culture” novel, but instead found this odd little book by Michael Banks and Dean R. Lambe from 1986. The Odysseus Solution - about a Trojan Horse from the stars.

In the normal course of things, the invention of the matter duplicator would not have proved fatal to human civilization... but the duplicators were NOT invented here; rather they were secretly introduced into an unready culture by aliens bent on conquest and colonization. The Plan was to present themselves at the height of the turmoil as Humanity’s saviors, and the plan worked. By the late 21st century, the aliens ruled Earth with an iron claw.
The Cweom-jik were birdlike creatures - large flightless avians.

After that I wander over to Barnes & Noble to see what’s front and center on the meme pusher's docket, and I’m greeted with 'Angelology' by Danielle Trusonni, and a feathered wing on the dust jacket.


The story follows a nun in New York who unwittingly reignites an ancient war between Angelologists, a group who studies angels, and a race of descendants of angels and humans called the Nephilim. The story blends ancient biblical pericopes, the myth of Orpheus, and the fall of rebel angels.
It’s all very Dan Brown-like (and as usual, paints the very rich - in this case the Rockefellers, as the “good guys”). This novel lead to a real world publishing house bidding war, with the aptly named Viking/PENGUIN winning the rights. Film rights were secured by Columbia Pictures, with Andrea Gianetti and DeVon Franklin (executive producers on The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons) overseeing matters.

The plot is familiar enough to anyone who covers the Xtreme Xtian beat: angels/aliens bred their DNA with humans/apes who’s half-breed descendants were called “giants” or Nephilim:
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. Genesis 6:4
Coincidentally, Tom Hanks, our 'Da Vinci Decoder' is on the front cover of Time Magazine this week: “Retelling History” or some such. Intrigued, I picked up the magazine only to find a glowing review of 'Angelology', which caused me to then go back and pick up the book.



Another big seller, 'Maximum Ride', is a series for young adults about genetic crossbreeding of human and bird DNA. I attempted to read one of these and I lasted only one chapter. James Patterson is no J. K. Rowling.

It makes me wonder... were the “Gods” a birdlike race? Is that why Horus is depicted with the head of a falcon, the angels with wings, and Quetzalcoatl with feathers? Perhaps the ancients were being more literal than we thought. I dunno, but if a bird waddles out of that flying saucer in 2012, duck hunting season is OPEN!

More Volunteers


Predictably, the news is full of forced outings and homophobia issues this week:

Supreme court to rule on anti-gay protests at military funerals.

California state senator Ashburn says he’s a homosexual.

NY congressman Eric Massa resigns rather than face a House sexual harassment probe.

Pope's brother linked to new claims of child abuse by clergy.

Vatican pair removed in homosexual prostitution inquiry.
The men involved in this particular scandal are volunteers...
Seattle’s Volunteer Park is infamous for homosexual "activity". I guess these assholes have been “volunteered”. St. Francis is repairing his church. Probably won't be anything left when he's done.

Poseidon Rocks the Boat


Conspiracy Grimoire has an interesting post up about a cruise ship’s encounter with 33m “rogue waves” off the coast of Barcelona, Spain, linking the waves semiotically to the tidal wave warnings that went up across the Pacific in the wake of the Chilean 8.8 earthquake disaster.

The ship, 'Louis Majesty' was a Cypriot registered vessel, a Greek island with a history as old as it gets - a cradle of civilization and the myths, being the birthplace of Aphrodite and Adonis. Interestingly, also a former stronghold of the Knights Templar.

Virtually next door to Cyprus is the island of Rhodes, famous for its colossal 33m bronze statue of Helios (destroyed by earthquake). Helios is the sun god (Read In the Shadow of Giants for previous musings). Louis XIV was called the Sun King, so quite bizarre that this ship named ‘Louis Majesty’ is struck by 33m waves.



Ships being rolled by giant waves naturally brings us to the 1972 disaster blockbuster ‘The Poseidon Adventure’. The "90 foot tidal wave" is not quite 33 meters, but damn close.

  Poseidon synchs in with his trident and that he is the god of earthquakes - “Earth-Shaker”. When offended or ignored, he supposedly struck the ground with his trident and caused chaotic springs, earthquakes, drownings and shipwrecks. Being the god of a hidden, unseen realm, Poseidon is another powerful archetype of the subconscious. To me, the graphic of the overturned S.S. Poseidon resembles a surfacing white whale. The trident is a triple-pronged weapon:
The three waves that struck the Cypriot-owned ship Wednesday claimed two lives off the coast of northeast Spain.
The Poseidon Adventure’s theme song: “The Morning After” became a hit single for Maureen McGovern (MM). Coincidentally, I sang that song in church when I was a teenager. Funny how “the morning after” has come to mean a day of reckoning.

Also in the news this week, yet another Catholic sex scandal:
The BBC reported today that two esteemed members of the pope's inner circle have been charged with taking part in male prostitution continually for a number of years. Police uncovered the scandal during a wire tap related to another matter.
Obviously just the tip of the mitre, er... iceberg.

Bloody Mary


Continuing on the "global birth pains" theme:

Antarctic Glacier Has Five-story Blood-red Waterfall of Primordial Ooze
Roughly 2 million years ago, the Taylor Glacier sealed beneath it a small body of water which contained an ancient community of microbes. Trapped below a thick layer of ice, they have remained there ever since, isolated inside a natural time capsule. Evolving independently of the rest of the living world, these microbes exist without heat, light, or oxygen, and are essentially the definition of "primordial ooze." The trapped lake has very high salinity and is rich in iron, which gives the waterfall its red color. A fissure in the glacier allows the subglacial lake to flow out, forming the falls without contaminating the ecosystem within.

A Bun in the Oven



Thanks to the overwhelming evidence (ha!) that Osiris is whole again, the next rather obvious step would be signs of Isis’ pregnancy with Horus.

Fortunately, spring is just around the corner so all the Easter, fertility symbolism of the season is right on schedule. I know the rest of country has been suffering through a brutal winter but we in the Pacific NW are having a delightful early spring.

Anyway, back to the strange death of Andrew Koenig for another clue. Andrew played “Boner” in the TV sitcom “Growing Pains”. Hmmm...
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. --Mark 13:8 
 Birth pains of Isis/Gaia/Mary equal growing pains of Horus? God, now I really do sound like the typical nutter! At least I’m not selling a book. Yet. I do admit the recent earthquakes in Haiti and Chile make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. The 8.8 quake in Chile may have altered the spin of the earth, shortening our days by 1.26 microseconds and also shifted the axis of the Earth by about three inches - according to NASA.

How on earth a shift in human consciousness might actually shift tectonic plates leads to musings about the Cosmic Cube and the Id-fulfilling machine of the Krell from Forbidden Planet, all previously researched on Gosporn. I have no idea how such a mechanism might actually work, but it does appear as though we are living in a time when all our dreams are coming true. All of them, unfortunately.

Anyhoo, feet back on the ground (tenuously) I wonder what might be a better and more hopeful sign of successful insemination than simply global labor pains. And this synch takes me back to San Francisco, Eros, and the birth of the Hippie Movement - the 1967 Summer of Love.
The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people converged on the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, creating a cultural and political rebellion. San Francisco was the center of the hippie revolution, a melting pot of music, psychoactive drugs, sexual freedom, creative expression, and politics. The Summer of Love became a defining moment of the 1960s, as the hippie counterculture movement came into public awareness. These lifestyles included communal living; the free and communal sharing of resources, often among strangers; and free love.
Compare the above with the description of the Pentacost in the Second Chapter of Acts:
They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread (eating of mushrooms) and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. --Acts 2:42-45
It seems to me that what occurred in San Francisco in 1967 was an example of a communal “anointing” of the Holy Spirit, or “parousia”:
Parousia |pəˈroōzēə; ˌpäroōˈsēə| noun Christian Theology another term for Second Coming. ORIGIN Greek, literally ‘being present.’
The uptight church edited out most of the “free love” aspect, but the “LSD/entheogen” and the sharing of possessions remain enshrined in Christianity even today as the Sacrament of Communion and the commandment to give to the poor. Corrupt as it may be, the church still shows the bones of its former glory, if none of the living flesh.



The “apostles” of the San Francisco “Pentacost” are The Grateful Dead, who based their entire career off the psychic “aftershocks” of this event. We’ll note the “thunderbolt” of enlightenment in the iconic logo AKA the breaking of the Cosmic Egg (your brain on drugs). I would translate Grateful Dead as “grateful ego death”, a condition manifested via the “spiced wine” of the Dionysian Mysteries, and later, in the Gnostic cults at the dawn of the Christian era.
Some, however, made fun of them and said, "They have had too much wine." --Acts 2:13
It seems to me that human consciousness is “ripe” for a new experience of Pentacost. I know I am. I’m pretty burned out with all the symbols that go nowhere, the promises that never arrive. We get Obama promising “real change”, and he winds up leading the minstrel show. We get anti-war talk, but no end to war, health care reform with no actual care. We get symbolic lip service on everything, and no real action.

Anyone up for some pole shifting? I think we can do better than 3 inches. How about the Summer of Love - 2010? I'll bring the mushrooms.

NOTES:

Pentacost means "50th day". Andrew was found on the 25th, which is 5x5. Interestingly, the Grateful Dead were ranked 55th in the issue "The Greatest Artists of all Time" by Rolling Stone magazine.
