Dark Side Dawn

Dark have been my dreams of late. ~King Theoden

I’ve been stuck in a dark cycle the past few weeks, the previous post stands as a testament to that. Apparently I am not the only one in the Pacific NW who is feeling it, which has recently seen a concentration of violent shootings - see  Vancouver Starbucks-Telus World of Science Shootings at Twilight Language for more. It’s fairly rare to find that kind of violence out here, being the land of weed butter and psilocybin honey.

That said, I found one cool local news event:

Resurrection of the Fool
PORT TOWNSEND –– After 222 years underwater, a historic anchor believed to have snapped free from the ship that accompanied Capt. George Vancouver's late-18th-century Discovery expedition is out of the water.

Anchor Ventures LLC on Monday retrieved an anchor lodged in the floor of Admiralty Inlet off Whidbey Island that they believe broke free from the HMS Chatham, companion tall ship to Vancouver's HMS Discovery. ~Peninsula Daily News
Anchors represent a lot of things, but in this case, the resemblance to Mercury’s caduceus rings out. Mercury, being the Messenger of the Gods, which is simply another way of saying a message from the subconscious… or an anchor brought to the light of day.

What might we discover by the light of the full moon, on this Friday the 13th?

The Death Star

The Death Star
Chronos is the personification of Time.
Chronos was confused with, or perhaps consciously identified with, due to the similarity in name, the Titan Cronus already in antiquity, the identification becoming more widespread during the Renaissance, giving rise to the allegory of "Father Time" wielding the harvesting scythe. ~wikipedia
Greek CRONUS is Latin SATURN. Time and death, and hexagons.

You can pretty much run with this sync as far as you care to go. Saturn castrates his father, Uranus. Jews and Americans ritually castrate their male children, via the ritual of circumcision.

The Holy Cost always ads up to 6

NOTE: I was sent an email asking me to explain the use of violent imagery. Very well: the post is a reaction to the cult of death and violence of empire, and how powerful symbols and myths are used to justify it.
