Mars Attacks

We have a “pet fly” lately. It’s been buzzing around the house for over a week or so, Var named it “Blake”. For many reasons this syncs with me. Let me try to explain:

- House flies in December are rare.
- We appear to have only one. It doesn’t die.
- This fly could be the same fly or the son of fly, or maybe superfly, but there is only one at a time, and it keeps hanging out - a fly on the wall.

At the same time this fly is hanging about, I have all these crazy “Mars” syncs: Everyone is suddenly using the word “grok”. Grok is a word from Heinlein’s fictional “Martian Language” in his novel: ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’.

The symbol for Mars, the NE pointing arrow, is also known as masculine, iron, and a Swedish automobile company, Volvo. I keep seeing Volvos. The latest is one today with a 144 license plate, y’all know what the does to me.

Mars is transiting Leo right now, between Oct. 30, 2011 and June 21, 2012. Mars is red and Leo is the Lion so the Red Lion Inn.

In Quatermass and the Pit, the Martians are depicted as insectoid. In fact, the popular alien is insectoid in appearance, with a large bald head and enormous black eyes.

In my crazy Star Trek Dream, the “aliens” are definitely insectoid.

Heinlein also envisions an invasion of extra-terrestrial bugs in Starship Troopers.

Marty McFly

The Fly - starring Jeff Goldblum. Jeff also battles insectoid aliens in Independence Day.

Naturally, the moment that insects are looming large in my life, we see the biggest fucking insect ever snapped on film, aka flypaper. It's name is weta.

"bigger than Jesus"

We've had flies as well. Our collie has fun catching and eating them. Don't forget the Lord of the Flies as well...
