Of all the characters currently acting out on the global stage, my personal favorite is Steve Jobs. From his priestly black mock-turtleneck and 501 jeans to his adoption of the Fruit of Knowledge as a corporate symbol, to the fact that Var actually got a personal phone call from him way back in 1999 - because back then Steve/Hermes still answered emails with personal calls when so moved.
Steve is looking a might specterish these days, and for me he’s beginning to resemble S. R. Hadden, the “eccentric and reclusive billionaire industrialist who is fundamental in deciphering the alien's message” from the movie ‘Contact’. The alien “message” comes via the 'Very Large Array' in New Mexico, so of course Var is visiting there this summer, around July 4...
The VLA are really Very Large Ears. Let's eavesdrop...
Steve, or Prometheus, who is more or less responsible for giving us the “forbidden fruit” or “stolen fire” of machine intelligence (VALIS) by creating an interface that even apes can understand (and was struck in the liver for his gift) is now presenting his vision for the next Apple HQ, which is either a spaceship, the Ring, Atlantis, or one element of Ellie Arroway’s stargate... you decide.
The Pentagon is a 5 pointed star, which is the the number of Venus, Isis, or Mary, the divine feminine. The “soldiers of Venus”, AKA the “Marines” would live in a 5 pointed star, except that “death star” was “destroyed” during the 911 terrorist attack. Almost like the first Contact Device was destroyed in a terrorist attack in ‘Contact’. The apple is associated with Venus because when sliced in twain, the pattern of the seeds creates a pentagram. So really, a ring named Apple = Pentagram.
Of course, Israel also has a certain recognizable shape:
In ‘Contact’, the first stargate was destroyed by fundamentalists (who see only the material or 'fundament'), but a second was created. Hmmm. New Jerusalem? Dare I take a bite of new stargate pizza? Hell, I already have. Tasty!
So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being” ; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.” --1 Corinthians 15:45
