Storming the Bridge

I've been syncing with Nazi Germany over the past week, thanks to watching Iron Sky. the Nazis hide out on the dark side of the moon, the film is produced by Blind Spot Productions... Lucifer has been almost everywhere, but even he won't dare that Nazi/Jewish stronghold.

I had a dream a few weeks ago: the tralfamadorians were closing their hands into fists - they couldn't bear to watch. I even walked by a gallery today that had a statue of a "tralfamadorian" in front for the entire summer, but he's left the building.

This is important to me because my husband had a dream a while ago that told him "You are still in Dresden".

Slaughterhouse Five
"Finally, in 1969, he tackled the subject of war, recounting his experiences as a POW in Dresden, forced to dig corpses from the rubble. The resulting novel was Slaughterhouse Five. Banned in several US states - and branded a "tool of the devil" in North Dakota - it carried the snappy alternative title: "The Children's Crusade: A Duly Dance with Death, by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr, a fourth-generation German-American now living in easy circumstances on Cape Cod (and smoking too much) who, as an American infantry scout hors de combat, as a prisoner of war, witnessed the fire bombing of Dresden, Germany - the Florence of the Elbe - a long time ago, and survived to tell the tale: this is a novel somewhat in the telegraphic schizopfrenic manner of tales of the planet Tralfamodre, where the flying saucers come from, Peace." ...."

The Not Sees have flying saucers now, they always land on a full moon.

And now we finally get to the sync. Var sent me a nice slideshow of famous bridges, which featured the Ponte Vecchio.
It is said that the economic concept of bankruptcy originated here: when a merchant could not pay his debts, the table on which he sold his wares (the "banco") was physically broken ("rotto") by soldiers, and this practice was called "bancorotto" (broken table; possibly it can come from "banca rotta" which means "broken bank"). Not having a table anymore, the merchant was not able to sell anything. 
During World War II, the Ponte Vecchio was not destroyed by Germans during their retreat of August 4, 1944, unlike all other bridges in Florence. This was allegedly, according to many locals and tour guides, because of an express order by Hitler.
Laying it out, a bridge, representing the bridge between Id to Ego. The Nazis, representing the hidden subconscious, evacuate Italy, and destroy bridges as they flee, hoping to hinder the advancing forces of allied egoic consciousness.

However, Id left one bridge standing... a bridge of unusual symbolic beauty. If Hitler left one bridge standing, perhaps it was because he eventually would re-cross that very same bridge. He retreated over that bridge on August 4, 1944. August 4 is also Obama's birthday, and coming right up, the default, or bankruptcy, of the American dollar.

Note: Dresden was called the "Florence of the Elbe". It was utterly destroyed by Allied bombing on Feb. 13, 1945. Apparently Churchill had no appreciation of the arts.

10/17/13 Update:

The morning after syncing "bankruptcy" to the return of the Id, I get a dramatic email from someone who calls himself 'The Watchman'.
