Shark Week

Hey all, just a quick gulp of air and then Ahab is going down for another stab at the whale. I've been hanging out in the octopus' garden for a while now, plumbing the depths of the subconscious.

It sorta all started when the mysterious seals began showing up on the raft in front of my mom's cabin on Hood Canal. They've never done that before, I began to think of them as my "Seal Team" - the surfacing of my subconscious into real life.

Have you seen American Warships? It's the shitty Netflix version of Battleship, yet another alien invasion story, except this time the aliens command stealth submarines that take out the mighty U.S. Navy. On a sync level it makes perfect sense, the aliens are "monsters from the Id", "hiding" in the subconscious. In American Warship, the brave Seal Team discovers the secret of the submarine's "alien" origins.

I watched Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea last week, with Captain Nemo (no one, no ego) playing the part of the avenging subconscious - the "sea monster". He rams the American warship "Abraham Lincoln". I figured that was a fairly blatant King Kill 33 sync. Nemo sank my ego!

Later, we see that Nemo's secret base is built under mysterious Lincoln Island, or in other words, a murdered president is the secret base of Captain Nemo, or in other words, a murdered ego is the secret base of the Id!

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stars in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which I like because A) I could watch his pecs bounce all day and B) he was also Mathayus (the Scorpion King) in The Mummy Returns.

As we all know by now, Osiris is the god of the sun, who is murdered by Set (sunset), but who then rises again in the form of Horus - the rising sun/son. Like a physical representation of resurrection, the pyramids represent a "mysterious island" of consciousness, rising above the chaotic sands of the subconscious desert.
After nine days, I let the horse run free,
'Cause the desert had turned to sea.
There were plants and birds, and rocks and things,
There was sand and hills and rings.
The ocean is a desert, with its life underground,
And a perfect disguise above.
Under the cities lies, a heart made of ground,
But the humans will give no love.
"The desert is an ocean with its life underground"
A Horse With No Name ~America

A horse with Nemo.
Back to the pyramids, I decided to watch my favorite Bond film last week: The Spy Who Loved Me. It features pyramids, submarines, Atlantis, Major Triple X and a murderer named "Jaws". We first meet Jaws on the plains of Giza and it's fairly obvious that he is the reincarnation of some dark Egyptian deity.

In the myth of Kamalo and the shark god, Kauhuhu plays the part of the subconscious avenger. As it happens, my copy of Mako Finn arrived a few days ago, and he's a sort of comic book homoerotic protector and avenger of sharks. He comes upon a reincarnated Megalodon. While the scientific name is C. megalodon, it is often informally dubbed the "megatooth shark", "giant white shark" or "monster shark".

Mr. Big Tooth
Megalodon - pointing at...
Now, hmmm. What does this giant, triangular tooth remind me of? Maybe a pyramid, or more precisely, the lost, or broken, cap.

Jake, the Martian fragment
Jules Verne's Mysterious Island was in part inspired by the Swiss Family Robinson, who are "castaways". Osiris was cut up into 14 pieces, and cast away into the Nile. Isis found all the pieces but one. The fourteenth piece, the lost cap, I have a feeling that only Set knows where he tossed it. He, and the BBC. Check the measurement on mega tooth, above.

Dude, that BBC article is insanity. Did you note this little gem in there:

"The fellow who named the rock type [in 1904] was Alfred Harker, the most influential British petrographer/petrologist of the first third (or so) of the 20th Century. "

Harker? As in Mina Harker, Nemo's fellow League of ExtraOrdinary Gentlemen member???? WTF?

I sent you the "Mack the Knife" link before I saw this

Captain Nemo also does the King Kill in Julius Caesar and Lolita but we knew that

It's getting stranger:

Obama accuses Romney of playing battleship

Lincoln, Nemo (Ney-mor), KK, etc.

Romney drops another 1947 reference in the video

The funny thing about the Labyrinth is, there's only one person in it who isn't a Muppet

Alan and of course Mina Harker is in my "Curiosity" post.

Carl Weathers is in Arrested Development opposite the Puppet President Franklin. Judy's daughter Liza suffers from vertigo.

I need to parse the Mars thing--in Mark LeClair's Sync Book article it goes from Mars to Mickey Mouse (he grew up a cow)--or is it the girl with the mousy hair spending seven minutes in Terra, dreaming of a Starman?

Michael said...

Yea. It's a difficult (impossible) thing to grasp intellectually, except for sync.

Mars: Oh come on. It's the only sign that actually points to itself.

Eleleth ר ק D said...

Right, I'm dumb. The Mars symbol as Adamic Man created from "red earth" of Mars. James Holmes the red-haired Joker as Ialdabaoth (Ziggy the Spider from Mars), holding Sophia's stolen phallus ♂. ("I want your blood, Max.") It's all in that post, somehow.

In the comics Mako Finn, the protagonist guards the sharks against illegal "finning", the key ingredient of shark fin soup. In Clue, the guests all sit down to a meal that begins with shark fin soup! Mako has a fin on his dick, Mars is Adam: Man. Shark fin soup is a soup reserved for weddings and celebration.

I don't know how more obvious this can get.

Finnigan's Wake?
