Egypt: Hunt for Red Mercury
In Egypt, the hunt for "red mercury" continues. Yes, this is the fabled red mercury said to be used to make nuclear bombs, but specifically the red mercury of ancient Egypt seems to have other characteristics and uses, as well.

The story about red mercury comes as background to the report that at least 17 artifacts from the Egyptian Museum of Cairo are missing following an earlier reported break-in, the country's minister of antiquities Zaki Hawass said Sunday, February 13, 2011.

Hawass said the looters were looking for gold and what he called this fictitious substance named "red mercury" that, according to local lore, can be found in the THROATS of ancient MUMMIES. Some people think it has magical powers and can be used to summon spirits. --Twilight Language

“Red Matter” was also at the “heart” of the doomsday device in Star Trek 11, and the Egyptian revolution occurred on 2/11/11.

I’ve had some crazy 14, 41 synchs over the last week, Doug helped me realize they might point toward Feb. 14 - Valentine’s Day.

“Red Mercury” showed up in my inbox on 2/10, courtesy of Borders Books. I was browsing for books in their REDmond store last week, and found a triple Whore of Babylon KK:

They reminded me of this statue of Harpocrates/Eros:

“The Hunt for Red Mercury” is a play on “The Hunt for Red October”, the classic cold war thriller about a SILENT submarine. I was born in October, on the 11th. But I found my Eros partner and lover on Feb. 14th - at a Blue Valentine party. Run silent, run deep?

Your old Star Trek post made a lot of good observations. Kirk is constantly dangling over a ledge...like Holden Caulfield on the "crazy cliff"?

A tincture of Red Mercury? You'll have to explain this one for me, I'm drawing a blank. Spock has always been a heavy Mercury-resonator. And of course, Old Spock travels into the place where Raum Wird Die Zeit and tells Young Spock that it's okay to love...

...which, of course, explains why Kirk only has eyes for Spock.

I swear I could get my Doctorate with that movie. I just watched it again, I think Kirk dangled from the cliff 6 or 7 times. Curiously, the first time he was playing the part of a rebel, driving the classic rebel car - a Corvette. Next scene Spock rebels against the Vulcan Science Academy - Rebel Rebel. an old post called Greece Lightning examined the rebel archetype, it even includes some Starfleet looking graphics.

Ummm, it's not a tincture, its a sphincter.
