2/7

I thought I’d like to hold a brief mass on this sunny Sunday in Mass.

In physics, mass (from Ancient Greek: μᾶζα) commonly refers to any of three properties of matter, which have been shown experimentally to be equivalent: inertial mass, active gravitational mass and passive gravitational mass. In everyday usage, mass is often taken to mean weight, but in scientific use, they refer to different properties.

An object’s mass increases when it approaches the speed of light.

Anyway, I came across an interesting passage as I was flipping through my old Catholic Edition Holy Bible that I recently found from my religious eduation (CCD) days. I stopped because the title of the page caught my eye.

Romans 3.3:

in the first place the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What if some were unfaithful? Will their unfaithfulness nullify the faithfulness of God? By no means! Although everyone is a liar, let God be proven true, as it is written,

“So that you be justified in your words, and prevail in your judging.”

But if our injustice serves to confirm the justice of God, what should we say? That God is unjust to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way) By no means! For then how could God judge the world? But if through my falsehood God’s truthfulness abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner? And why not say (as some people slander us by saying that we say) “Let us do evil so good may come”? Their condemnation is deserved!

That’s some interesting material right there. I touched upon this same idea in the radio show and think that this is what is underlying much of “the conspiracy.” Doing evil with the intention that one’s actions will bring about good seems to be a pretty foolish idea to me, but I guess some might find it effective..

Anthrax contaminated heroin spreads:

BRITISH authorities today warned drug users that heroin in London was highly likely to be contaminated with anthrax, after a first confirmed case there and following nine deaths in Scotland.

“While public health investigations are ongoing, it must be assumed that all heroin in London carries the risk of anthrax contamination,” said Dr. Brian McCloskey, who is director of the Health Protection Agency (HPA) in London.

“Heroin users are advised to cease taking heroin by any route, if at all possible, and to seek help from their local drug treatment services.”

McCloskey added that the risk to the general population was “negligible.”

Who would have the ability to contaminate a drug supply in this way? Have not government agencies been known to use anthrax in order to push through political agendas?

I recently read a book called Rising Phoenix by Kyle Mills. In this book, a former FBI agent teams with an evangelical tv preacher in order to combat the drug problem in America. In order to do so, they contaminate large amounts of the drug supplies (harder drugs, of course). Many people suffer very violent deaths before the bad guys are caught.

I never read Storming Heaven, but here’s a review I got from Amazon:

Take one outspoken, sloppy, slightly boozy FBI agent who’s too smart for his own good (and never lets the reader forget it) and exile him to a field office in Arizona so he doesn’t embarrass the Agency. Tie him to a short tether and bury him in paperwork. Add a double murder and a missing teenager; throw in a little New Age religion (but don’t identify it as Scientology, or L. Ron Hubbard’s legions will bury you in lawsuits) and you have Kyle Mills’s second Mark Beamon thriller. A bit too smug to be likable, Beamon has the case totally figured out before anyone else has a clue. Shortly thereafter, he’s pressured to shut down the investigation. When he persists in following a road that leads right to the front door of the powerful Church of the Evolution, he’s suddenly targeted by the IRS, labeled a pedophile, and finally suspended. But with the help of an ex-member of the cult, an eager young agent, and a crusty old retired wire tapper, Beamon manages to track down the missing girl and put a crimp in the church’s ambitious plans. These include a conspiracy to take over the nation’s telecommunications infrastructure and extend the cult’s hold over the movers and shakers of the country–including Beamon’s boss and other FBI honchos. A tidy little millennial thriller with echoes of Waco, Ruby Ridge, and those comet-happy cultists in San Diego who followed their leader to a higher plane last summer, this should win Mills (author of Rising Phoenix) a legion of new fans. –Jane Adams

(Dodgeball: An Underdog Story)

Kate Veatch: That… is a really interesting painting.
White Goodman: Thank you. Yeah, that’s me, taking the bull by the horns. It’s how I handle business. It’s a metaphor.
Kate Veatch: I get it.
White Goodman: But that actually happened, though.

To me, the painting represents the wet dream of an insecure Jew. He is trying to gain control over the raging beast  – to steer him in the direction he wants and then tire him out. In reality, he doesn’t stand a chance. Interestingly, although Jews were once portrayed as the outsiders, Stiller now represents the corporate insider while the Goyim is the one having to fight as the underdog.

Horns are very important in symbolism. They represent the devil, fertility, and virility. This is why people often say they are feeling horny when desiring sex. Horns are also used in rapid communication like when people say they will “get on the horn.”

From the Wikipedia article on fox hunting: The huntsman, often the same person as the kennelman, is responsible for directing the hounds in the course of the hunt. The Huntsmen usually carries a horn to communicate to the hounds, followers and whippers in.

Maybe we can finally put to rest the age old question of just who exactly let those dogs out..

(thugs called Angels and Guardians)

Right now I am reading The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. In it, a religious theocracy has violently taken control of the United States and other parts of the world – their colonies. The tyrants carry about their business using a triangle with an All-Seeing Eye and wings. The fertile women that are left are forced to procreate with the high-ranking military men. Some of these babies still come out deformed. This all happened so suddenly, even though it had been planned for years.

I guess that’s how they were able to do it, in the way they did, all at once, without anyone knowing beforehand. If there had still been portable money, it would have been more difficult.

It was after the catastrophe, when they shot the president and machine-gunned Congress and the army declared a state of emergency. They blamed it on the Islamic fanatics, at the time.

Keep calm, they said on television. Everything is under control.

I was stunned. Everyone was, I know that. It was hard to believe. The entire government, gone like that. How did they get in, how did it happen?

That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.


From there, things only go downhill. Let’s not let this happen.

Another radio show for you. Titled Paranoia, Synchronicity, and the Messiah Complex..

And on to some (seemingly) unrelated issues..

(purple chairs, of course)

Isaac Hayes left South Park after the show criticized Scientology. The creators decided to send his character off in an episode where he becomes disillusioned by the dull life in South Park and joins the Super Adventure Club. They brainwash Chef and he comes back wanting to have sex with the children (using Hayes’ canned voice). The boys want to get to the bottom of this..

The Super Adventure club was founded by a guy who journeyed around the world, but came to find that every place had already been discovered, so he was pioneering no new ground. Instead, he decided that he could be the first white man to have sex with all of the native children of the world. What he came to find out was that “children have particles called marlocks in their bodies, and when an adult has sex with the child, the marlocks implode, feeding the adult receptive cavity with energy that causes immortality, so sayeth the ruler of Bethos.”

Now South Park might just be trying to slander Scientology here, but I think there is something much deeper going on here. Maybe this is why so many powerful men throughout history have been having sex with little boys.. or maybe they’re just deranged pederasts. Hard to say.

Interestingly enough, Tom Cruise (IMDb) is slated to star in Adventurer’s Club, which is in development.

The Adventurers Club was a themed nightclub in Pleasure Island at the Walt Disney World Resort. It was styled after a private club for world travelers and explorers and was set in 1937.

Although I understand some of the negative aspects of South Park, one thing I like about the show is that it brings up some very pertinent issues and recently lambasted Disney’s mind control agenda.

Usually I like for one day to flow into the next, but right now it’s not really apparent how. It could be that my theory about Obama liking little boys and being tied into an alien agenda is true.

2/2/2010

I had been seeing this number everywhere and now I just wanna run through a few subjects relating to 44. Let’s start with foot ba’al..

(44)

Heavy Rain in Miami forces change in Super Bowl plans. CBS rejects ‘Dante’s Inferno Superbowl ad (video) for ending with the tagline “Go To Hell.” Napolitano confident in security measures. Anti-Abortion Super Bowl commercial causes storm.

Okay, and somehow, now on to aliens.

I am copy and pasting a lot, but it’s shorter than watching the whole thing, which I have not done..

The 4400 (pronounced “the forty-four hundred”) is a science fiction TV series produced by CBS Paramount Network Television[1] in association with Sky Television, Renegade 83 and American Zoetrope for USA Network.[2] The show was created and written by Scott Peters and René Echevarria, and it stars Joel Gretsch and Jacqueline McKenzie. The series ran for four seasons from 2004 until its cancellation in 2007.[3]

In the pilot episode, what was originally thought to be a comet deposits a group of exactly 4400 people at Highland Beach, in the Cascade Range foothills near Mount Rainier, Washington. Each of the 4400 had disappeared at various times starting from 1946[4] in a beam of white light. None of the 4400 have aged from the time of their disappearance. Confused and disoriented, they remember nothing between the time of their disappearance and their return..

a small number of the returnees begin to manifest paranormal abilities, such as telekinesis, telepathy and precognition, as well as other “gifts”. For example, in the pilot episode Shawn Farrell manifests an ability to bring a dead bird back to life. In addition, one of the 4400 (Lily Moore) has become pregnant between her disappearance and return.


The first season finale, “White Light“, reveals that the 4400 were abducted, not by aliens, but by humans from the Earth’s future; that Kyle Baldwin [played by Chad Faust, who also plays a Kyle in Smallville] was to be their “messenger”‘ and that they were returned to avert a catastrophe.

By the second season, it is revealed that all 4400 have a neurotransmitter called promicin in their brains, which gives them their powers. The government, afraid of what this large group would do with such power, secretly doses all 4400 with a promicin-inhibitor which works on most of the 4400, but not those who were later seen with powers. The inhibitor causes a potentially fatal immune deficiency as a side effect in the returnees. It is ultimately removed from the 4400 by a dose of promicin extracted by from the blood of the infant

At the beginning of the third season, the Nova Group, a terrorist faction made up of 4400s, has made itself known. Originally formed as a “defensive” group in the aftermath of the promicin-inhibitor scandal, the Nova Group eventually carries out numerous terrorist attacks against the government and NTAC. The group is responsible for many terrorist attacks including the assassination of the men involved with the promicin-inhibitor conspiracy; the attempted assassination of Ryland; the framing of Baldwin for murder; and the driving of another person to insanity.

During the third and fourth season, it is revealed that only a certain faction from the future wants to see history changed. Another faction, that prefers the status quo, opposes the 4400, and has sent their own operatives, including Isabelle Tyler and “the Marked”, into the past. The exact motives of both factions have not yet been revealed.

Eventually, Jordan Collier, who declares himself the savior of humanity, makes promicin shots available to the general public. However, only half of the human population can actually tolerate promicin, and thus develop superhuman abilities, while the other half die upon taking the shot. Although the government outlaws promicin use, thousands of previously ordinary people have developed superhuman abilities, severely complicating NTAC’s task. Collier later annexed a part of Seattle and transformed it into “Promise City”, a self-proclaimed paradise open to all people with superhuman abilities. Attempts to reclaim Promise City by the US government have met with little success, and considering the damage certain 4400s loyal to Collier could do, NTAC has advised caution in attempting to do so by force.

And, since the empire never ended, let’s check in on the Roman Empire.. 44 AD:

Mathematically, Forty-four is a tribonacci number, a happy number and an octahedral number. And, let’s not forget about some more significant syncs..

Forty-four is:

Holy cow! That’s a whole lot to ponder. Couple that with the huge foreign policy concerns taking place right now and I’m thinking we are in store for some kind of wild ride.

No matter how strong I might find myself to be, there are many who wish to drag me down and beat the hell out of me. From their perspective, I am considered the enemy.

Besides the one man finding a heart-based energy system that enables flight and near-invincibility, what is the story here?

[from trailer]
Ivan Vanko: [watching Stark on TV] You come from a family of thieves, and butchers. And like all guilty men, you try to rewrite your history, to forget all the lives the Stark family has destroyed.

Ivan Vanko: There will be blood in the water, and the sharks will come…

Well, first you have the guy who played (arguably) the best Jedi of all time, the next guy is named finney, then you have crud up, and Jessica Lange whose most recent films on IMDb are One More River and Grey Gardens. Maybe you are starting to realize why I left Depth so shallow?

A beautiful, sunny out. Even with all of the problems of our current times, it is hard for me to be angry when out in nature and with my animal friends. I am taking today to reflect upon my mission here and come to terms with just who it is that I want to be.

I have not heard back from Andrew D. Basiago as to when he would like to officially schedule the interview, but I just got a message that Benjamin Creme (of Share International) would be interested in doing an interview. This would be a very interesting discussion.

To Whom it May Concern:

Do you really expect me to sit idly by and say nothing? Retribution comes to those who commit crimes against humanity. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not this year.. but one day hell will rise up and swallow the bastards behind this.

(Depleted Uranium)

Is this what your God wants you to do? Do you really think you are doing what is right? I understand there have been atrocities done by both sides, but this is not the way. You give people with light skin a bad name.

(evil side of propaganda)

I will not shut up. You will have to take away my site. But that won’t stop me. This world is going to shit, but make no mistake, I will fight for it.. for goodness, for humanity.. until my last dying breath. You can (try to) put me in jail, render me, drug me, freeze me, spill my blood, “suicide me,” or whatever other schemes you can think of, but I assure you that will not be the end. The spirit that runs through me will not stop.

Fuck you Barack Obama. Going to spend more on nuclear weapons than Bush? To what end?

And one more thing..

Chemtrails are meant to pacify? Well, they’re pissing me off! Where are the superheroes when you need them?

They’re watching.. and they’re getting angry.

(Kyle XY)

If you couldn’t tell, I don’t always enjoy sacrificing my time and energy into this machine. I have become addicted to it in many ways. It is how I make a “living” and where I vent my frustration. It is my tool for learning and education. But I’m afraid that something is missing here. We are all effecting real change by what we are doing on these machines, but to what end?

The visions I have for the future are not always pretty, especially in the short term. Sometimes I wonder whether I’m just predicting or atcually causing things to occur. I have come to be entangled into this whole story in ways that I am having a tough time trying to grasp. The thing that I think is helpful to understand is that our actions, works, and words all reverberate through time.. in all directions.

My next article will discuss this phenomenon.

January 28

I thought I’d share something different with you today.

I made this video from footage I shot while driving from Florida to Massachusetts. I would like to say I did it in one straight shot, but I took a brief nap at a rest stop. Third Street Habit is my friend’s band. Two of the guys went to college with me.

By the way, did anyone catch all of the purple in last night’s State of the Union? Holy cow! Which brings me to an old college rivalry..

Oh, those Ephs! When I was in college, Amherst vs. Williams was featured on ESPN’s top rivalries poll. In the first round, we went up against Army/Navy, which was probably a conspiracy of some sort by the military establishment. Do you want to know what we at Amherst would sing after vanquishing our opponents?

Oh, Lord Jeffery Amherst was a soldier of the king
And he came from across the sea,
To the Frenchmen and the Indians he didn’t do a thing
In the wilds of this wild country,
In the wilds of this wild country.
And for his royal majesty he fought with all his might,
For he was a soldier loyal and true,
And he conquered all the enemies that came within his sight
And he looked around for more when he was through.

Oh, Amherst, brave Amherst
‘Twas a name known to fame in days of yore,
May it ever be glorious
‘Til the sun shall climb the heavens no more..

(listen to the audio)

I bet there are a few Frenchmen and Indians who would disagree with that song, but I think it was intended to be a “joke.” What is not a joke is that the current president of the college is named Tony Marx. I wonder if there is any relation to Karl.. or even to my Markes relatives. Ah, it’s all so strange.

January 26-27th

The radio show is now archived here..

Apologies for the audio issues. I will speak up and make sure the audio level is correct. If you are looking for an hour of loosely compiled thoughts, you’ve found it 🙂 This should also serve as something of an explanation of Depth. I know some of you might be confused by it.

Perhaps Sherlock Holmes (quotes) can help us solve the puzzle. The first is from a Study in Scarlet, the second from A Case of Identity, and the last from The Final Problem.

In solving a problem of this sort, the grand thing is to be able to reason backward. That is a very useful accomplishment, and a very easy one, but people do not practise it much. In the everyday affairs of life it is more useful to reason forward, and so the other comes to be neglected. There are fifty who can reason synthetically for one who can reason analytically.

Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.

If I were assured of your eventual destruction I would, in the interests of the public, cheerfully accept my own.

On the thin ice of modern life
Dragging behind you the silent reproach
Of a million tear stained eyes
Don’t be surprised, when a crack in the ice
Appears under your feet
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind
With your fear flowing out behind you
As you claw the thin ice

The Flaming Lips – It Overtakes me

On February 20, 1974, Dick was recovering from the effects of sodium pentothal administered for the extraction of an impacted wisdom tooth. Answering the door to receive delivery of extra analgesic, he noticed that the delivery woman was wearing a pendant with a symbol that he called the “vesicle pisces“. This name seems to have been based on his confusion of two related symbols, the ichthys (two intersecting arcs delineating a fish in profile) that early Christians used as a secret symbol, and the vesica piscis. After the delivery woman’s departure, Dick began experiencing strange visions. Although they may have been initially attributable to the medication, after weeks of visions he considered this explanation implausible. “I experienced an invasion of my mind by a transcendentally rational mind, as if I had been insane all my life and suddenly I had become sane,” Dick told Charles Platt.

How much more abuse from man can she stand?

Roman: Satan is his father, not Guy. He came up from hell and begat a son of mortal woman. [Coven members cheer ‘Hail, Satan!’] Satan is his father and his name is Adrian. He shall overthrow the mighty and lay waste their temples. He shall redeem the despised and wreak vengeance in the name of the burned and the tortured. Hail, Adrian! Hail, Satan! Hail, Satan!

A ganglion cyst (also known as a bible cyst) is a swelling that often appears on or around joints and tendons in the hand or foot. The size of the cyst can vary over time. It is most frequently located around the wrist and on the fingers. The term “Bible Bump” comes from a common urban legend that treatment by pounding on the cyst with a Bible or another large book occurred in the past.

Syndactyly (from Greek συν- = “together” plus δακτυλος = “finger”) is a condition where two or more digits are fused together. It occurs normally in some mammals, such as the siamang, but is an unusual condition in humans.

Natural gills work because nearly all animals with gills are cold-blooded and so need much less oxygen than a warm-blooded animal the same size.

Like-A-Fish Technologies is an Israeli business, founded by Alan Bodner in 2001, that is developing a human artificial gill system; they have developed a prototype. Like-A-Fish’s technology uses a centrifuge causing lower pressure at the center, where dissolved air comes out of the water.

Casey: Yeah, so is Schindler’s List.

Paul Marsh: Fuck Dagon!
Uxía Cambarro: Yes!

Dagon was a major northwest Semitic god, reportedly of grain and agriculture. He was worshipped by the early Amorites and by the inhabitants of the cities of Ebla and Ugarit (which was an ancient city near the Mediterranean containing a large variety of ancient writings and pagan shrines). He was also a major member, or perhaps head, of the pantheon of the Biblical Philistines.

While the birthplace of Cthulhu is not definitively established, it is suggested that his birthplace is that of the planet Vhoorl; with his advent somehow connected with supernovae: “I learned whence Cthulhu first came, and why half the great temporary stars of history had flared forth.”

Akbar (the Great) began a series of religious debates where Muslim scholars would debate religious matters with Sikhs, Hindus, Cārvāka atheists and Portuguese Roman Catholic Jesuits. He founded a religious cult, the Din-i-Ilahi (Divine Faith), but it amounted only to a form of personality cult for Akbar, and quickly dissolved after his death.

Octopussy (1983) is the thirteenth spy film in the James Bond series, and the sixth to star Roger Moore as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film’s title is taken from Ian Fleming‘s 1966 short story Octopussy and The Living Daylights. However, the film’s story is original and the short story is narrated as a flashback by the main Bond girl Octopussy. In the film, Bond is assigned the task of following a general who is stealing jewels and relics from the Russian government. This leads him to a wealthy Afghan prince, Kamal Khan, and his associate, Octopussy. Bond uncovers a plot to force disarmament in Europe with the use of a nuclear weapon.

It is good to be a cynic — it is better to be a contented cat — and it is best not to exist at all.

Sol Robeson: The Ancient Japanese considered the Go board to be a microcosm of the universe. Although when it is empty it appears to be simple and ordered, in fact, the possibilities of gameplay are endless. They say that no two Go games have ever been alike. Just like snowflakes. So, the Go board actually represents an extremely complex and chaotic universe.

Nihilism (from the Latin nihil, nothing) is the philosophical doctrine suggesting the negation of one or more meaningful aspects of life. Most commonly, nihilism is presented in the form of existential nihilism which argues that life is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value. Moral nihilists assert that morality does not inherently exist, and that any established moral values are abstractly contrived. Subsequently there are no moral values with which to uphold a rule or logically prefer one action over another. Nihilism can also take epistemological, metaphysical, or ontological forms, meaning respectively that in some aspect knowledge is not possible or that contrary to our belief, some aspect of reality does not exist as such.

Another one: A big eyed fish,
Yeah, swimming in the sea,
Oh, how he dreamed.
He wants to be a bird,
Swooping, diving through the breeze.
One day, he caught a big blue wave,
Up onto the beach,
And now he’s dead.
You see, a fish’s dream,
Should stay in the sea.

But, oh God,
Under the weight of life,
Things seem brighter on the other side.

Eckhart saw Hell too. He said: The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won’t let go of life, your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they’re not punishing you, he said. They’re freeing your soul. So, if you’re frightened of dying and… and you’re holding on, you’ll see devils tearing your life away. But if you’ve made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth. – Jacob’s Ladder

Lindsey Brigman: I know how alone you feel… alone in all that cold blackness… but I’m there in the dark with you. Oh Bud you’re not alone… Oh, God. You remember that time – you were pretty drunk, you probably don’t remember – but the power went out in that little apartment we had on Orange Street? We were staring at that one little candle, and I, I said something really dumb like, that candle was me, and like every one of us is out there alone in the dark in this life… and you just, you just lit up another candle and you put it beside mine and said “No! See, that’s me. That’s me”… and we stared at the two candles, and then… well, if you remember any of this, I’m sure you remember the next part. But there *are* two candles in the dark. I’m with you. I’ll always be with you Bud, I promise that.

The name is originally from Ancient Greek δελφίς (delphís; “dolphin”), which was related to the Greek δελφύς (delphys; “womb”). The animal’s name can therefore be interpreted as meaning “a ‘fish’ with a womb”.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Can’t Stop

The Pleiades (pronounced /ˈplaɪ.ədiːz/, also [ˈpliːədiːz]; from the Greek Πλειάδες [pleːˈades], Modern [pliˈaðes]), companions of Artemis, were the seven daughters of the titan Atlas and the sea-nymph Pleione born on Mount Cyllene. They are the sisters of Calypso, Hyas, the Hyades, and the Hesperides. The Pleiades were nymphs in the train of Artemis, and together with the seven Hyades were called the Atlantides, Dodonides, or Nysiades, nursemaids and teachers to the infant Bacchus.

Donnie: [in a letter] Dear Roberta Sparrow, I have reached the end of your book and… there are so many things that I need to ask you. Sometimes I’m afraid of what you might tell me. Sometimes I’m afraid that you’ll tell me that this is not a work of fiction. I can only hope that the answers will come to me in my sleep. I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to.

all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

Peter Gabriel – In Your Eyes

Title cards: God created man in His own image, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. GENESIS 1.27, 31

When I’m at the pearly gates
This’ll be on my videotape
My videotape
My videotape

Mephistopheles is just beneath
And he’s reaching up to grab me

This is one for the good days
And I have it all here in
Red, blue, green
Red, blue, green

Radiohead – Videotape

In an alternate 1985 where former superheroes exist, the murder of a colleague sends active vigilante Rorschach into his own sprawling investigation, uncovering something that could completely change the course of history as we know it.

You can fight it like a dog
It brought me to my knees
They got scared and they put me in

Radiohead – Bodysnatchers

Well I saw the thing comin’ out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin’ and I said “ooh-eee”
It looks like a purple eater to me

Chiron: [from trailer] Use this to defend yourself. It’s a very powerful weapon.
Percy Jackson: This is a pen.
Chiron: Only use it in times of severe distress.
Percy Jackson: This is a *pen*.

Ezekiel for an Hour

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Things to Come

January 21, 2010 at 9:48 pm (Uncategorized)

1/25/2010 – The US is Broke

I’ve had dreams of a native uprising. This has not happened in quite some time, but it could be possible, especially with the US being so overextended across the globe with wars and debts. Maybe this is why the Feds are rounding up those 5,000 mustangs out in Nevada. Movies like Avatar could be reinvigorating their pride and illuminating the corruption of corporatism and colonialism, gaining valuable allies for a people who lived close to the land.


Our politicians are crooked, the money is funny, and the military machine keeps churning and burning. Some people actually believe that war can help get a country out of financial disaster, but the past nine years should show that the creations of destruction are not desirable. That doesn’t mean that the powers that be are not ready and willing to double quadruple down.

Broken Arrow may also be:

  • An accidental event that involves nuclear weapons or nuclear components but which does not create the risk of nuclear war, known as a Broken Arrow in United States military terminology.
  • The United States code for calling in all available aircraft or artillery for an airstrike and/or artillery strike very near a friendly position which has been overrun by the foe, and therefore creating a high probability of ‘Blue-on-Blue’. An example of this use was shown in the 2002 movie We Were Soldiers, a true story during which a Broken Arrow was called in by Lieutenant Colonel Hal Moore in 1965 while leading his men through the Ia Drang Valley in Vietnam.

1/24/2010 – Arrows Away

Orion was a beautiful, skilled hunter. His ego grew too big and this angered Zeus, who sent the Scorpion (or Artemis and her bow) to take out the great man. Diana, loving Orion, pleaded on his behalf and got him placed in the heavens, presiding over our winter months, far from Scorpio.


I came across some advertisements for this new show on FX. The titular character is an over-sexed spy that will amuse audiences with his idiocy and crudeness. Spying has been cleverly marketed to the people of this country for quite some time and this is just another example. But there is something else going on here, of course. The commercial I saw had Archer shooting  into the “ISIS Mainframe.” The above archer uses a silencer, but a bow and arrow is naturally pretty silent.. and more elegant, in my opinion.

(White men going [G]reen)

His secret identity is Oliver “Ollie” Queen, billionaire and former mayor of fictional Star City.

Dressed like Robin Hood, Green Arrow is an archer, who invents trick arrows with various special functions, such as a glue arrow, a net arrow, explosive arrow, time bomb arrow, grappling arrow, fire extinguishing arrow, flash arrow, tear gas arrow, cryonic arrow, a boxing-glove arrow, and even a kryptonite arrow.

Throughout his first twenty-five years, Green Arrow was not a significant hero. In the late 1960s, however, writer Denny O’Neil chose to have him lose his fortune, giving him the then-unique role of streetwise crusader for the working class and the disadvantaged. In 1970, he was paired with the more law-and-order-oriented hero Green Lantern in a groundbreaking, socially conscious comic book series. Since then, he has been popular among comic book fans and most writers have taken an urban, gritty approach to the character.

In this season of Smallville, apparently Green Arrow is going to try to form the Justice League. Also interesting to note: Green Lantern gets his powers from a ring and he serves as part of a galactic police.

Very interesting..

1/23/2010 – Dark Times

What have I been talking about with race issues in this country? What do I get showed by my friend this morning? Brutality charged as Pittsburg police defend ‘fist strikes’ on teen. Three white plain clothes policemen got out of their car, chased after an 18 year old viola-player, honor roll high school student, tased him, and beat him bloody.

I mean, they’re not gunna kill ya, so if you give em a quick short,
Sharp, shock, they wont do it again. dig it? I mean he get off
Lightly, cos I wouldve given him a thrashing – I only hit him once!
It was only a difference of opinion, but really…i mean good manners
Don’t cost nothing do they, eh?

Pink Floyd – Us and Them

How many times have we seen these incidents happen in recent years? It’s not just black people anymore. It’s old people, white people, pregnant people, young people, and all sorts of people. People are being pushed to the limit.

(or Death and all of His Friends by Coldplay)

Call out the instigator
Because there’s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here
And you know it’s right

Tom Petty – Something in the Air

Yeah, there’s something in the air. Have you seen the skies filled with chemtrails? But not only is it the air, it’s the food and the water, and the things that surround us. They are killing us, sucking the life right out of us. They don’t want this to happen again..

(How the French decided to kill the “witches”)

Have you ever read a Tale of Two Cities? Yes, the French aristocrats were some pompous pricks, but the absolute devilry that ensued during and following their overthrow ensured that the people would not long keep their “liberty”. Napoleon, stepped in and united Europe under his rule, but eventually fell to the English. A small, dark haired man united much of Europe in the 1940s, but eventually fell. Now not only there is there a European Union with a president, the nations  of the world are united. So why does it feel like we are sitting on a powderkeg waiting for a match?

And yet amid the wanton killing and desolation, there is nobility to be found..

It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.

1/22/2010 – The Beast

One of the main reasons I don’t think my last article was as good as some of the others is because I was somewhat hesitant to thread together the disparate elements and present a compelling picture of what is really happening. I still am.

When some get into this kind of research, they start believing themselves to be the saviors of the world. This has happened to me now and again, especially when I come close to some form of gnosis. This could actually be a healthy reaction, as it internalizes the center of control for a person and gives a sense of responsibility. But the savior is also supposed to pass judgment upon the wicked and destroy the devil. This process of “divine justice” would probably get very bloody and turn the savior into a villain. I guess it all depends on which team you’re rooting for.

There is much to be learned from Disney, even if it is mind control. Because he was unable to love, Prince Adam was transformed into a terrible beast. He was awakened from his slumber by Belle, a beautiful girl that was able to see through his cruel exterior.

I wonder if this could have any relation to The Bell: Die Glocke (German for “The Bell”) is the name of a purported top secret Nazi scientific technological device.. The topic has been popularized by Nick Cook, Joseph P. Farrell and conspiracy theory websites, associating it with Nazi occultism and antigravity or free energy research.

But just what was it that the Nazis awoke when experimenting with this technology? Is it necessarily evil?

1/21/2010 – Judgment

DeadPrez brought up some good criticism of the last article in the comments section today. Check it out if you get a chance. I agree with him almost entirely. The article is long, not cohesive, and does not do justice to the subjects covered. But if you have not read it, I still suggest you do as I think you might be able to get a new perspective concerning a few topics. I will do better in the future.

I included the above image because it relates to the last article. Saturn/Satan is obviously the Lord of the Rings. Although it doesn’t seem as if Jupiter likes Saturn very much, they are oddly attracted to one another. Maybe it’s something of a Rome-eo and Jew-liet type of situation. But that ends in tragedy. Well, maybe it wouldn’t matter if the the world’s just a stage. To be honest, the events occurring right now are great drama. It is fascinating and it’s hard to stop watching. Everyone wonders how it’s going to end even though we’ve seen this script repackaged so many times. Maybe there is a way for some last minute re-writes and we can change the ending. Well, I don’t even know how I want it to end or if I can stop what has already been written. We’re all set for a Hamlet type ending, but does it have to be like this?

In the next article I will take a closer look at the nature of games, wars, the color gray, imprisonment, the Bible, body snatchers, genetic breakdown, salvation, annihilation, and death. And much more I’m sure.

Blood

January 13, 2010 at 8:44 pm (Uncategorized)

Basics of Blood

Blood plays an extremely important role throughout our bodies. Through its continued circulation, blood provides the cells of our bodies with the proper nutrients and oxygen while also getting rid of waste like carbon dioxide. Blood is carried throughout the body in a rich fluid called plasma, which is mainly comprised of water. There are both red and white blood cells, with the latter playing a crucial role in warding off diseases. When the surface of the body is punctured, blood quickly moves through the veins to seal off the wound and begin the process of healing the tissue. In my opinion, the most amazing aspect of this all is that all of this is done automatically.

There are different kinds of blood, categorized by the antigens that surround the blood cells. Although A, B, AB, and O are the major breakdowns, there are actually 30 different “types” of blood currently recognized. There are theories that suggest that the type of one’s blood has much to do with that person’s personality and should influence the kinds of foods that he or she eats. Because of these differences, transferring blood from one person to another can be a tricky endeavor.

Surprisingly, the distribution of blood types around the world seems to transcend racial groups, indicating that there is some other kind of mechanism for transference. For a brief look at this phenomenon, check out Modern Human Variation: Distribution of Blood Types. (not Wikipedia!) Certain diseases are transmitted via the blood, but certain blood types and racial groups can have a natural immunity to these diseases. HIV/ AIDS Story is a brief video that offers an alternative viewpoint on the hysteria surrounding HIV.

Although cancer can be caused by a number of different factors, it can spread throughout a body through the circulation of blood. (medical term: malignant neoplasm) is a class of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth (division beyond the normal limits), invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood). These three malignant properties of cancers differentiate them from benign tumors, which are self-limited, and do not invade or metastasize.

The idea of cancerous growth should be kept in mind as we move away from some of the technical aspects of the blood and look into the symbolic and occult importance of this divine substance. I will start with..

The Blood of Christ

Through the Eucharist, bread and wine are turned into the body and blood of Christ. Although the substances are still in their original form, they have been transformed into something much different. Good Christians are supposed to eat and drink of Christ in order to live forever in the Kingdom of God.

How are we to know that Christ is the real deal? Well, he had supernatural powers that he used to heal the sick and feed the hungry.

(note the eye)

Also, he was said to have dieed and then three days later he rose from the grave.. How miraculous! Although Jesus left the earth, we are told that we need not fear when evil rears its ugly head(s) because when it does, Jesus will come back to save the righteous and destroy the wicked. He will come down to earth from his cloud to do battle against..

The Anti-Christ

If I was the Christ, I would probably not even tell anyone because I would automatically be called the Anti-Christ:

Hippolytus of Rome (c. 170-c. 236) held that the Antichrist would come from the tribe of Dan and would rebuild the Jewish temple in order to reign from it. He identified the Antichrist with the Beast out of the Earth from the book of Revelation.

By the beast, then, coming up out of the earth, he means the kingdom of Antichrist; and by the two horns he means him and the false prophet after him. And in speaking of “the horns being like a lamb,” he means that he will make himself like the Son of God, and set himself forward as king. And the terms, “he spake like a dragon,” mean that he is a deceiver, and not truthful.

Origen (185–254) refuted Celsus‘s view of the Antichrist. Origen utilized Scriptural citations from Daniel, Paul, and the Gospels. He argued:

Where is the absurdity, then, in holding that there exist among men, so to speak, two extremes– the one of virtue, and the other of its opposite; so that the perfection of virtue dwells in the man who realizes the ideal given in Jesus, from whom there flowed to the human race so great a conversion, and healing, and amelioration, while the opposite extreme is in the man who embodies the notion of him that is named Antichrist?… one of these extremes, and the best of the two, should be styled the Son of God, on account of His pre-eminence; and the other, who is diametrically opposite, be termed the son of the wicked demon, and of Satan, and of the devil. And, in the next place, since evil is specially characterized by its diffusion, and attains its greatest height when it simulates the appearance of the good, for that reason are signs, and marvels, and lying miracles found to accompany evil, through the cooperation of its father the devil.

(Satan/Saturn Bull/Viking with a crown of horns and a sunburn)

Accusations of “anti-Christ” have been leveled against many people and organizations over the years. For many centuries the Catholic Church received its fair share of this slander. Well, it only makes sense that an organization that puts a bloody savior idol on a cross would get this kind of attention.

It is said that the Dajjal of Islam will have curly hair and be of red complexion, and specifically have only one eye. This could indicate that organizations that use the pyramid with the “Eye of Providence” on top are part of the Anti-Christ. It could also be that there are literally Cyclopes amongst us or that the Anti-Christ will be a person that has lost one of his (or her) eyes. This theme can also be seen in movies with one-eyed characters like Bill the Butcher (Daniel Day Lewis) in Gangs of New York, Tom Cruise in Valkyrie, and that Spartan who lost his eye in 300. That’s just off the top of my head and I’m certain you can find many more.

 

And just how we can find multiple Anti-Christs, we can also find multiple instances of..

The Savior

When all hope seems to be lost, when darkness seems to have won, in rides the savior of humanity..

Many people in the alternative research community assert that the world elite are waiting for the Maitreya, the Buddhist/New Age teacher. It could be that they have performed the proper rituals to bring him about, following the playbook to the T, and are only waiting to reveal him to the world.

Through his teachings, it is said that gods, men, and other beings “will lose their doubts, and the torrents of their cravings will be cut off: free from all misery they will manage to cross the ocean of becoming; and, as a result of Maitreya’s teachings, they will lead a holy life. No longer will they regard anything as their own, they will have no possession, no gold or silver, no home, no relatives! But they will lead the holy life of chastity under Maitreya’s guidance. They will have torn the net of the passions, they will manage to enter into trances, and theirs will be an abundance of joy and happiness, for they will lead a holy life under Maitreya’s guidance.” (Trans. in Conze 1959:241)

That would be a rather radical change from our current state of affairs. I wonder if Communist/fascist governments would be there to help people in their quest for purity and surrender.

The hero of the Neverending Story (within a story) is a hunter named Atreyu. He rides a white horse and fights off “the nothing” as he journeys to see the Childlike Empress, who is eternally a little girl and rules Fantasia in her Ivory Tower. Eventually the nothing destroys even the strongest of characters and all that is left of that great place is a grain of sand and the observer. From the observer’s (Bastion’s) wishes a whole new world can be created. The observer makes many wishes and eventually becomes corrupted, trying to usurp control of the Ivory Tower.

Atreyu reminds be a bit of Nimrod, the great hunter of ancient days.

(He’s the Jesus-fish-man with the mitre [Pope hat])

He waged eternal warfare with God’s followers on earth (the City of Salem under Melchizedek). He also swore to build a tower so high that it would allow him entrance into the kingdom of God, where he promised to slay God. Melchizedek is also known as Shem, the righteous son of Noah. He reportedly slew Nimrod in battle and cut his body into pieces. He then sent those pieces to the far reaches of Nimrod’s empire to show that God was still more powerful than man. From Dead Man Musings: The Avatar, Maitreya, and Our “New Age” Religion. Definitely worth a read, although it is a bit bias. (Thanks to Ali for the link)
If we’re talking about the End Times and the return of the savior, I should probably bring up the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Well, actually let’s just stick with the first.. Irenaeus, an influential Christian theologian of the second century, was among the first to interpret this horseman as Christ himself, his white horse representing the successful spread of the gospel. Various scholars have since supported this theory, citing the later appearance, in Revelation 19, of Christ mounted on a white horse, appearing as The Word of God. Furthermore, earlier in the New Testament, the Book of Mark indicates that the advance of the gospel may indeed precede and foretell the apocalypse.

Kalki is the savior figure in the Hindu religion. He is supposed to return when the world has become corrupted and evil. Kalki conquers the wicked with a vengeance. An interesting point from the Wikipedia article: All Hindu traditions declare all people to be manifestations of the divine essence or Atman and avatars to be individuals who are far more acutely and extensively aware of this fact and its implications than most. They have entered the mortal realms voluntarily to teach important truths to humanity or dharma, and usually have extraordinary abilities to aid in these roles.

In Nickelodeon’s Avatar: the Last Airbender, which is being made as a movie by M. Night Shyamalan, there are four different tribes in the world, with each tribe possessing an ability to “bend” (exert control over) their respective element – earth, air, water, and fire. In order to preserve balance there is always supposed to be an avatar, who has the ability to master all four elements. About a century ago, this character had gone missing, which allowed for the fire tribe to assert dominance and terrorize the world.

The first episode opens with Aang, the last of the monk-like airbender tribe, being unfrozen from a block of ice in the ocean. We soon learn that he is the one who is supposed to heal the world. He learns to control all of the different elements and does battle with the evil forces of the world, eventually taking on the Fire Lord. And instead of riding a white horse, he rides a white flying bison.

I wonder why the character is a white airbender named Aang..

Could it be because the controlling powers of this world are going to introduce a new savior – an Anglo-Saxon of the Windsor (wind soar) family. He actually flies in the Royal Air Force and I have no idea if he can do so without technology, but I highly doubt it. He and I were actually studying at St. Andrews at the same time when I was studying abroad and playing rugby there (he didn’t play). I ran into him once or twice and there’s something of a funny story about me trying to hit on his girlfriend on my 21st birthday.

An amateur researcher named Rik Clay uncovered a great deal of information concerning the 2012 Olympics in London, the return of the king, and the idea that England is to be the new Zion. Among other things, he thinks that William will be put forth as something of a new Messiah. The full text of his work. Rik Clay on Red Ice. Shortly after his Red Ice interview, Rik was found dead. The official cause of death was suicide.

I’m finished making sense
Done pleading ignorance
That whole defense
Spinning infinity, but
The wheel is spinning me
It’s never ending, never ending
Same old story

Foo Fighters – The Pretender

A pretender is one that lays claim to an occupied throne. Although it is already underway, I have a feeling that the ascendancy of William to the throne of England might not go unchallenged. Are the Windsors just the stewards to the throne? Will the “real” king return?

What might he look like?

Da Vinci’s Code

 

Some people are naturally born with very light or non-existent eyebrows. From my own familial experiences, I can tell you that this is a genetic characteristic. I used to hate the fact that everyone else had eyebrows and I did not. Now I don’t mind. I am who I am.

Because I have honestly not seen anyone look into this subject, I will spend some time covering it..

Bruce Willis is naturally an Unbreakable Die Hard. David Bowie shaved his eyebrows to be play Ziggy Stardust (lyrics), who hung out with spiders from Mars and had a lightning bolt across his face. Woody Harrelson, well he’s a Natural Born Killer/ Bartender.

I include Alan Moore as I like his graphic novels (V for Vendetta, Watchmen..), his beard, and the fact that he was born exactly 30 years before me on November 18th, 1953. Saturn really does come back around. Scorpios like us enjoy delving into the unknown and uncovering that which is hidden. And now onto another example..

Arwen: Why do you fear the past? You are Isildur’s heir, not Isildur himself. You are not bound to his fate.
Aragorn: The same blood flows in my veins. The same weakness.
Arwen: Your time will come. You will face the same evil, and you will defeat it.

The men of the West take heart when the lost heir to the throne announces himself because his blood has great strength. Because of this, Aragorn has lived for many more years than most of the other characters of the story, excluding Gandalf (who rides around on a white horse and uses a bow-staff). The symbolic tree of Gondor begins to flower once again when Aragorn takes the immortal Arwen for his wife as they will inevitably have powerful offspring who will eventually rejuvenate the bloodline of men.

From the dawn of time we came; moving silently down through the centuries, living many secret lives, struggling to reach the time of the Gathering; when the few who remain will battle to the last. No one has ever known we were among you… until now.

In Highlander, the immortals chop off each others’ heads in order to gain more power. The goal is to become the last one and gain the prize, which appears to be demons running through the one’s body, providing him the knowledge of all people and making him mortal and able to reproduce. The last immortal the Highlander has to face is the strongest one, a terrifying Russian who also lacks eyebrows.

(Vladimir Putin)

This guy is intimidating. Maybe there is some sort of relation to..

About Rasputin: It has been argued that Rasputin helped to discredit the tsarist government, leading to the fall of the Romanov dynasty, in 1917. Contemporary opinions saw Rasputin variously as a saintly mystic, visionary, healer and prophet or, on the contrary, as a debauched religious charlatan.

His life was incredible but his death is legendary. He was stabbed by a peasant who proclaimed that she had killed the Anti-christ. After this failed to kill him, he was poisoned in large amounts to no effect. It is claimed that he could have become immune through ingesting small amounts of poison over some years (Mithridatism). He was then shot in the back, clubbed, castrated, tied up in a carpet and thrown in an icy river, got free but drowned under the ice. After the February Revolution, a group of workers from Saint Petersburg uncovered the remains, carried them into the nearby woods and burnt them. As the body of Rasputin was being burned, he appeared to sit up in the fire. His apparent attempts to move and get up thoroughly horrified bystanders.

Brief summary from IMDb: A priest disobeys church law to track down the vampires who kidnapped his niece.

The actor is named Paul Bettany and he is playing Archangel Michael in the upcoming Legion, in which God sends terrible-looking angels (demons?) to destroy mankind, as he sees they have become wicked. Bettany also played Charles Darwin in Creation and acted as interesting characters in the Da Vinci Code, a Knight’s Tale, a Beautiful Mind, and many other note-worthy movies.

Straight from Wikipedia:

Mary I (18 February 1516 – 17 November 1558) was Queen of England and Queen of Ireland from 19 July 1553 until her death. She was the eldest daughter of Henry VIII and only surviving child of Catherine of Aragon. As the fourth crowned monarch of the Tudor dynasty, she is remembered for restoring England to Roman Catholicism after succeeding her short-lived half brother, Edward VI, to the English throne. In the process, she had almost 300 religious dissenters burned at the stake in the Marian Persecutions, earning her the sobriquet of “Bloody Mary“. Her re-establishment of Roman Catholicism was reversed by her successor and half-sister, Elizabeth I.

(It’s hard not to like Dennis and Elizabeth Kucinich)

Dennis certainly seems to have some magic and is one of a very few politicians that I actually like. He famously admitted to having been in contact with a UFO. He is also a Roman Catholic.

But it’s not only white people that have this characteristic..

Whoopi Goldberg plays a psychic in Ghost. She also has NO eyebrows. On to another example..

Hilary Swank has shaved her eyebrows to play Amelia Earhart (Air heart) in an upcoming film.

The shaving of one’s eyebrows really can have a drastic effect upon one’s look – well, that and some additional lbs and lack of make-up. And however weird this may sound, The New York Times is actually touting this as a new style:

“It’s unifying,” she said. “There is an asexual element to no eyebrows. We are much more accepting of the ‘other’ nowadays. Removing eyebrows removes a degree of expression, which makes one look less human and more cerebral, maybe even mechanical. It’s an exercise in modernity.” (Where Have All the Eyebrows Gone?)

The articles goes on to say that it is a great style for this time of economic trouble, as it is a free way of drastically changing one’s looks.

(self-proclaimed Anti-Christ)

Well, I guess this makes sense as the world appears to be controlled by..

Vampires


For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off. Leviticus 17:14

Tales of vampires go back thousands of years. Sometimes a person would die and be buried, but then livestock and persons would come under attack. The bodies of the recently deceased would be exhumed and destroyed in various way, traditionally with a stake driven through the heart. Perhaps this is why there are currently very strict laws specifying the depth and make-up of a grave. In my state of Massachusetts people must be buried in a grave surrounded by concrete.

Various groups have been accused of drinking the blood of children and performing ritual sacrifices. This is called blood libel and it has been done for thousands of years, with Jews being one of the main targets time and again. There have been many documented cases of this kind of activity in the United States, especially in the latter half of the 20th century. (Hmm.. well, what people came over in great numbers during that time period?)

Vampirism could also be describing psychic vampirism, which can be hard to trace and detect unless one knows what to look for. A brief recommendation: How Energy Vampires Drain Your Spirit: 11 Ways to Protect Yourself. And also check out Michael Tsarion’s PsychicVampirism.com for another overview of this concept.

And perhaps the vampire stories are describing an actual phenomenon concerning god-like beings that come from underground, such as the Mothman. Before moving on to some fun movie stuff, I would also like to add that vampire stories can be great metaphors for central banks and oppressive government and religions.

The Silver Screen

Our culture has been saturated by images and stories of these supernatural creatures for a long time. In recent years TV and movies shows like True Blood, the Vampire Chronicles, and Twilight all put an attractive spin on this old tale. But since I don’t feel like spending the time to watch all of the garbage put forth as entertainment these days, I will have to stick to what I know.

(Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It’s fun to be a vampire.)

In The Lost Boys, a family moves from Phoenix to Santa Cruz. Big brother Michael goes chasing after a beautiful girl named Star. In order to attract her, he falls in with the “wrong crowd.” They take him to their underground lair where he eats their food and drinks their wine, which he later finds out is actually blood. He starts to change into a vampire and gains many of their notorious powers. With his younger brother and his vampire-hunting friends from a comic book shop, they battle the vampires and kill the head vampire (the owner of the video store) and save Michael and Star.

In Peter Pan, the Lost Boys are children who were abandoned or “lost” by their nannies and whisked away to a magical land where they never grow old. With a little fairy dust and some happy thoughts they are able to fly. In the movie Hook, these lost children live in a gigantic tree, much like the fanged, bow-wielding blue characters from Avatar. And how does the ex-marine assimilate himself with the clan? By lying in a coffin-like piece of technology that whisks him away into a new body with incredible abilities. And guess what physical feature James Cameron (JC) lacks?

We could live for a thousand years
But if I hurt you
I’d make wine from your tears

I told you
That we could fly
Cause we all have wings
But some of us don’t know why

INXS – Never Tear Us Apart

Far from the Nosferatu or Hungarian Bela Lugosi of yore, recent depictions of vampires show them as attractive, suave, pale-skinned, and very seductive..

(See Reclaiming the Rainbow)

Lestat, played by Tom Cruz Cruise, had blond eyebrows for Interview with a Vampire. It also interesting that the reporter of this tale is played by Christian Slater. Consider some of definitions of “slate”: -to write or set down for nomination or appointment, -to plan or designate (something) for a particular place and time, -to censure of criticize harshly or violently, -to punish severely.

One of the most famous vampire stories is Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The next image is from Francis Ford Coppola’s take on the story.

The character of Count Dracula was inspired by Vlad the Impaler, fierce resistor of the Ottoman Empire.

His Romanian surname Dracula (also spelled “Draculea”, “Drakulya,”drackuliea”), which Vlad was referred to in several documents, means “Son of the dragon” and points to his father, Vlad Dracul, who received that moniker from his subjects because he had joined the Order of the Dragon. Dracul, derived from the Latin word Draco meant “dragon”, though in modern Romanian it means “devil“.

He got the title “Impaler” because he would dispatch his victims by putting them atop large, sharp stakes and letting their bodies do the rest. But let’s get on to some prettier subject matter..

(Lilith (1892), by John Collier – I try to give credit sometimes..)

Lilith (Hebrew: ליליתLīlīt; Arabic: ليليثLīlīṯ) is a female Mesopotamian storm demon associated with wind and was thought to be a bearer of disease, illness, and death. The figure of Lilith first appeared in a class of wind and storm demons or spirits as Lilitu, in Sumer, circa 4000 BC. Many scholars place the origin of the phonetic name “Lilith” at somewhere around 700 BC despite post-dating even to the time of Moses. Lilith appears as a night demon in Jewish lore and as a screech owl in Isaiah 34:14 in the King James version of the Bible. In later folklore, “Lilith” is the name for Adam’s first wife.

I wonder if any of the women who went to the Lilith Fair a few years back had any idea for whom it was named.

(note the downward arrow on forehead)

Queen of the Damned is the sequel to Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire and features Lestat awakening from his slumber and becoming the lead singer of a rock band. The movie features the attractive Aaliyah, who died shortly before the Twin Towers attack at the age of 22. After filming Romeo Must Die, Aaliyah filmed her part in Queen of the Damned. She released her third and final album, Aaliyah, in 2001. On August 25, 2001, Aaliyah and eight others were killed in an airplane crash in The Bahamas after filming the music video for the single “Rock the Boat.”

There could be some kind of connection. I was always so fascinated by the amount of crying fans she had mourning her death. It was something of an odd prelude to the bigger disaster that was about to unfold. There is also something very important about a black girl playing the queen of the damned. These racial issues require more exploring..

Vampire movies sometimes have subtle stories of racial conflict. The above picture shows Blade, a vampire who can go out in the daylight, fighting against Frost, a vampire that has been imbued with the powers of the Blood God, which he acquired through the blood sacrifices of other vampires mixed with blood of Blade, performed in an elaborate ritual.

Blade 2 is another entertaining film produced by Snipes’ Amen-Ra Films. In the opening scene it is revealed that the vampires are getting much of their blood from the kindly donations of people like you and me..

(give blood for your country)

The third Blade film is a pretty decent movie and furthers some of the points from the previous films as the vampires unearth the shape-shifting immortal being known as Dracula whilst in Iraq. In the end, many vampires are eradicated when Blade and crew mix Dracula’s blood with an airborne virus that attacks vampire blood. It should be noted that Wesley Snipes is a well-known tax evader.

(Capture Humans? No)

I will not give away too much from Daybreakers as it is out in theaters and worth watching. It is loaded with symbolism (Phoenix, water door) and has an interesting message. Needless to say, it does not portray the military, Communism, or vampirism in a very positive light.  Ethan Hawke’s character is a sympathetic vampire hematologist that works for the Bromley Marks Corporation, trying to find a blood substitute. He ends up helping the human opposition (who use bows as weapons) and ends up finding a permanent cure (interesting definitions) that involves controlled exposure to sunlight (see Staring at the Sun).

Rivers of Blood

Daywalker Barack Obama campaigned as a man of peace. He was hailed by some as the Messiah while others immediately saw him as the Anti-Christ. There are many who can quote scripture and tell you how he fills the characteristics, but what matters to me is what he has done. Since taking office he has increased America’s wars drastically while also overseeing skyrocketing spending levels and bailouts. Despite the fact that the more innocent blood is continuing to be spilled around the globe because of Barack Obama, he was somehow awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Well, I guess that prize has always been pretty ridiculous, considering it is named after the inventor of dynamite and was once given to Henry Kissinger.

The only way for Communism to succeed is through the blood of its victims and supporters. Maybe I’m just being “un-American”

How to Educate Vampires

  • As soon as the sun rises, bus children to indoctrination centers where they will be taught how to fit into society.
  • If they reach the next level, send them to college to stay up all night studying, partying, and “safely” mating. Keep them in buildings during the day.
  • After graduation, they can either work in an office or pay more money to reach another degree.
  • Convince them that the sun is dangerous and that sunglasses and sunscreen are required to be in it.
  • Repeatedly tell them that they are superior to the mere humans, who deserve to be treated as cattle.
  • Offer money and drugs for “socially acceptable” behaviors.
  • Refuse to acknowledge the existence of a cure for their unhappiness. Convince them they are happy.

Drinking spirits regresses us to a state of existence very similar to when we were children. We laugh, play, and open up much more than normal. I must admit that I was a very big drinker in college. Although I drank almost anything, whiskey was one of my favorite ways to get drunk. I am starting to see that if we didn’t live in such a disastrous society, then we wouldn’t need to resort to the brief happiness of alcohol. It can make us angry, cause us to make regrettable decisions, and could lead to an old age plagued with this disease and the other ones it brings on.

I do not hate vampires. I am a recovering one myself. Maybe I shouldn’t be saying this on here or else there could be something of a..

Witch Hunt

People throughout history have been killed because of accusations of witchcraft. This continues to this day. Another interesting thing I found out in the Wikipedia article on Witch Hunt is that there is a myth that the Hun were created by the mixing of blood from expelled witches and the barbarian tribes.

Like vampires, groups of witches are called covens. Witchcraft involves the use of magical powers to achieve a desired end, which can either be to harm or heal. There have been laws against witchcraft going back for thousands of years. These laws mainly focus on how to persecute those using their powers for negative effects upon others.

Witches are often said to worship Beelzebub, which is a demonization of the ancient god Ba’al. While the Semitic high god Ba’al Hadad was depicted as a human, a ram, or a bull, the demon Bael was in grimoire tradition said to appear in the forms of a man, cat, toad, or combinations thereof. (This illustration of Ba’al looks like a characterization of Prince Charles or his son William.) Ba’al was once the name of the most high god in the Hebrew tradition and can be linked to the gods El and Saturn. The Biblical story of Gideon tells how this judge, possessed by the spirit of God, destroyed his father (and village’s) alter to Ba’al and constructed a proper one on which to burn his father’s second bull as an offering to his God, Yahweh. Ba’al eventually came to mean any idol that was being worshiped instead of God.

Many good people spend a great deal of their time documenting how Hollywood, the music industry, and the political arena are all being controlled by Satanists and advocating magic and ritual. This is a given – it’s all over the place. For a good explanation of this, see the documentary HollywoodInsider’s Magick and the Matrix [Illuminati Symbolism]. For now, let’s try to understand what Satanism actually entails..

(Marilyn Manson And Anton LaVey)

From the Church of Satan’s website: Founded on April 30, 1966 c.e. by Anton Szandor LaVey, we are the first above-ground organization in history openly dedicated to the acceptance of Man’s true nature—that of a carnal beast, living in a cosmos which is permeated and motivated by the Dark Force which we call Satan. Over the course of time, Man has called this Force by many names, and it has been reviled by those whose very nature causes them to be separate from this fountainhead of existence. They live in obsessive envy of we who exist by flowing naturally with the dread Prince of Darkness. It is for this reason that individuals who resonate with Satan have always been an alien elite, often outsiders in cultures whose masses pursue solace in an external deity. We Satanists are our own Gods, and we are the explorers of the Left-Hand Path. We do not bow down before the myths and fictions of the desiccated spiritual followers of the Right-Hand Path.

Satanists often argue that although myriad wars have been fought in the name of God, almost none have been fought for Satan. Who then is the real enemy? It could also be said that far from being an actual adversary to the “Right-Hand,” Satanists work right alongside their leaders in the same pyramid of domination. By the extremes of this church, they push people right back to the “good” churches.

I don’t know how accurate the following diagram is, but I think it illustrates an important point about how there can often be a deceiving dialectic.

(Click to enlarge the [vam]pyramid)

People that feel connected to the energies of the universe are not evil. I’m not sure that evil people are even “evil.” They just are what they are. But it does not seem that this scheme would fit into the ethics of Wicca

Although witchcraft has practices, ethics, and doctrines, a person does not need an organization or rituals in order to practice magic. Also, it seems that certain races, genotypes, and phenotypes have more of a proclivity toward magical abilities than others.

 

I did not watch it, but I was able to pick up that in Race to Witch Mountain there is a race of Aryan aliens with magical powers. they are trying to get to Morder a Mountain, there is a Bad guy named Wolff, the boy is named Seth, and they are driven by the Rock.

Another good example is that of Darth Vader (Dark Veda?) aka Anakin Skywalker, who was supposed to be the one who brought balance to the force. The Jedi thought he would be the chosen one because of his incredibly high Midi-chlorian count. Midi-chlorians are pretty much organelles within each and every cell that serve to communicate with and harness the energy of the force. (Wookieepedia) Their name and function indicate to me that they could be some kind of cross between mitochondria and chloroplasts, something I have wanted to create since AP Biology.

Darth is also an example of the technological vampire. Through the use of nanotechnology, cybernetics, or advanced artificial intelligence, one might be able to “live” for an extremely long time. This would especially be the case if the original human was already very strong in the channeling and use of energy.

(a Vam-pyre)

Right before Darth died he took off his mask to reveal what he really looked like. He was an old, wrinkled, chubby white guy that wanted to see his son (the sun) with his own eyes. Throughout the whole series, he looked and talked like a large, muscular black man.

The Mud People

Do you know how the Orcs first came into being? They were elves once, taken by the dark powers, tortured and mutilated. A ruined and terrible form of life. Now… perfected. My fighting Uruk-Hai. Whom do you serve? – Sarumon

Most would assume that J.R.R Tolkien was writing about World War II when he wrote Lord of the Rings, which would put the Uruk-hai in line with the Nazis. This is the obvious comparison. We can also see that Arnold Schwarzenegger (Nazi) covered himself in mud in order to hide from the Predator..

Both the Uruk-hai and Predator have dread-locks. More stories about racial conflict? Well, how many hobbits or heroes in the LOTR are black? None. How many of the servants of Sauron? Most. I think it also worth pointing out that many “hybrid” religions developed when Christianity (and other God-religions) was spread to the black people of this world, resulting in a mix of myths and magical practices, such as Candomble and Voodoo.

The name Uruk-hai should also indicate that this story is ancient one, as Uruk was the first city after the flood. Interestingly enough there is even an Iraqi-based website, Uruknet.info, which features stories such as this one: Pakistan: unlawful US drone war kills 140 innocent civilians for 1 CIA-alleged terrorist.

You call us mud people because we’re
Black, Brown, yellow, and Red.
For that reason hundreds of years my people have suffered and bled..

To really see what is going on with American tax dollars, take a look at these Iraq War Casualty Pictures. I bet these people are sure glad that the United States freed them. Well, they freed them alright – from the mortal coil of this world. I know it may be difficult, but please go look at those pictures to understand what war does to people. And imagine the psychological damage that would result from knowing that you were the cause of that devastation. Is it all really for oil, the lifeblood of the planet, or is this only an added benefit?

Whadda I got to, whadda I got to do to wake ya up
To shake ya up, to break the structure up
‘Cause blood still flows in the gutter
I’m like takin’ photos
Mad boy kicks open the shutter

Rage Against the Machine – Wake Up

Many people in the Middle East are waiting for a person that will bring justice to their people, the Mahdi. Muslims believe the Mahdi will rid the world of error, injustice and tyranny alongside Jesus.

Saving the Desert

Before moving on to discuss how this might be achieved, I will first say that the Middle East would the perfect place for vampires to hide. You might argue that the sun would be too much for them, but have you forgotten about the burqas?

(Peter O’Toole as Lawrence of Arabia)

Not all blue-eyed, white men are the same. There are some who see corruption and wrong-doing for what it truly is and cannot go along with the established order of things. Lawrence of Arabia led Arabs and showed them how to unite in order to throw off their oppressors. He was accepted as one of them and grew to love desert and its people as his home. This story, and those sparkling blue eyes reminds me of another savior of the desert.

(Kyle McClaughlin in Dune, as the savior Muad’Dib [Mahdi])

Its surface is barren. Its true strength hidden. Its foreboding desert conceals the power to fold space, to slow time, to send the mind where the body cannot go. It is the source of the ultimate power. It is the deadly battleground where a young leader will emerge to command an army of six million warriors against the tyrannical force that threatens to enslave the universe. It is the clash for the greatest prize of all… the planet Dune.

As the epic unfolds, Paul Atreides (above) defeats the ruling faction and brings his family back into prominence, also becoming the religious leader of the desert people. After some time, things turn worse, there’s terrorism, corruption overtakes the house, and Muad’dib disappears and becomes a blind wanderer and prophet. It is left for his magical twin children to save the planet.

But not everyone wants to accept an outsider, a person with the oppressor’s blood, as the savior of their people. This will cause some to turn to..

The Dark Side

We should not disarm. We should not roll over and allow for the atrocities to be committed in our names. At the same time, we should be careful not to become that which we oppose. Although some “white people” benefit from the sale of arms and the exploitation of people, many dark people of this world seem to have no problem killing and torturing each other for money and power.

(Compare the Es to Jay Z’s Blueprint 3 album cover)

In Demolition Man, John Spartan (Stallone) is convicted of wrong-doing while pursuing the criminal Simon Phoenix. Both are cryogenically frozen and go through years of sub-conscious rehabilitation programs. Simon Phoenix is given parole in the future and uses his natural instincts to escape and cause havoc in the city. Spartan is unfrozen to deal with his old nemesis, but the future is a much different place than the violent past he was used to. Everyone is micro-chipped, weapons are banned, police only use non-violent techniques, swearing is fined, and sex is done virtually so as to prevent diseases. Spartan sympathizes with the underground resistance, who is shown to be full of good people with legitimate complaints. Phoenix, on the other hand, is aided by a motley crew of criminals, not too unlike..

The Bloods are a street gang founded in Los Angeles, California. The gang is widely known for its rivalry with the Crips. They are identified by the red color worn by their members and by particular gang symbols, including distinctive hand signs. The Bloods are made up of various sub-groups known as “sets” between which significant differences exist such as colors, clothing, and operations, and political ideas which may be in open conflict with each other. Since their creation, the Blood gangs have branched out throughout the United States. Bloods have been documented in the US military, found in both US and overseas bases. The Bloods evolved from a break-off faction of the Crips, known as the Pirus Street Gang.

If these gangs ever decided to unite, they would be a powerful, heavily armed force. Maybe that is why they are made to fight amongst themselves over money and drugs. And maybe that is why some elite planners are considering another kind of solution (see the Zombie Injection). But don’t worry black readers, you can have your saviors in the apocalypse as well..

(too bad there doesn’t seem to be anyone left)

Years after a plague kills most of humanity and transforms the rest into monsters, the sole survivor in New York City struggles valiantly to find a cure. (IMDb) Smith works to find a cure to the disease by capturing the vampire-like creatures and performing medical experiments upon them. Smith has now saved the world against robots, aliens, vampires, and was even cast as Neo in the Matrix before Keanu got the part.

A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind. (IMDb) Apparently the movie opens with Eli shooting a cat with a bow and arrow. Also, deliver can be re-arranged as “evil red” – anything to this? Well, let’s read the words of a man Denzel once played..

Malcolm X was killed for his beliefs. The effect his message has had in subsequent years has been tremendous. Do you think in reaching the after-life (if there is one), Malcolm X would hate his killer or forgive him? To me it seems the ultimate honor to die for one’s beliefs, which can be for one’s own salvation or for the sake of others. At the same time, Bob Marley recommended staying alive.

Don’t let them change ya, oh! –
Or even rearrange ya! Oh, no!
We’ve got a life to live.
They say: only – only –
Only the fittest of the fittest shall survive –
Stay alive! Eh!

Bob Marley – Could You be Loved

But then Bob was killed.

The Myth of Mithra

Staying alive is kind of hard when you have a god trying to lop your head off!

Based on ancient Mithraism narrations, every year in a ceremony, Mithra killed the holy cow to flow its blood on earth and to resurrect nature. The killing of the cow with Mehr’s hands is one of the main symbols of this religion. (site)

Wikipedia: In addition to being the divinity of contracts, Mithra is also a judicial figure, an all-seeing protector of Truth, and the guardian of cattle, the harvest and of The Waters. In Middle Iranian languages (Middle Persian, Parthian etc), ‘Mithra’ became ‘Mehr’, ‘Myhr’ etc, from which New Persian and Armenian Mihr ultimately derive.

Together with the Vedic common noun mitra, the Avestan common noun miθra derives from proto-Indo-Iranian *mitra, from the root mi- “to bind”, with the “tool suffix” -tra- “causing to.” Thus, etymologically mitra/miθra means “that which causes binding”, preserved in the Avestan word for “covenant, contract, oath”.

Mithra is a savior figure in Zoroastrianism, which is often considered the predecessor to the religions of the West, namely Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Zoroaster, a man from Ancient Iran, asserted that there was a purely good, benevolent god on one side and an evil, malignant force at the opposite polarity. He believed that the deities/ devas that were being worshiped by the current religions were actually evil spirits as they seemed to delight in war and strife.

He floated back down ’cause he wanted to share
His key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere
But first he was stripped and then he was stabbed
By faceless men, well, fuckers
He still stands

If you look through Star Theory hard enough you might be able to find a cure. I really hope you do. Take it and run with it.

Curing Humans

Here’s a problem: Outside the limit of our sight, feeding off us, perched on top of us, from birth to death, are our owners! Our owners! They have us. They control us! They are our masters! Wake up! They’re all about you! All around you! (They Live)

Here’s a solution: To be “born again,” or “born from above,” or “born of the Spirit,” means to become healed; which is to say restored, restored to sanity. Thus it is said in the New Testament that Jesus cast out devils. He restores our lost faculties. Of our present debased state Calvin said, “(Man) was at the same time deprived of those supernatural endowments which had been given him for the hope of eternal salvation. Hence it follows, that he is exiled from the Kingdom of God, in such a manner that all the affections relating to the happy life of the soul are also extinguished in him, till he recovers them by the grace of God… All these things, being restored by Christ, are esteemed adventitious and prenatural; and therefore we conclude that they had been lost. Again: soundness of mind and rectitude of heart were also destroyed; and this is the corruption of the natural talents. For although we retain some portion of understanding and judgment together with the will, yet we cannot say that our mind is perfect and sound. Reason… being a natural talent, it could not be totally destroyed, but is partly debilitated…” I say, “The Empire never ended.” – Philip K. Dick.

Please go read the exegesis published at the end of Valis. It is some of the most inspired thought I have ever come across, but that’s probably because he claims to have directly channeled it from a living, cosmic intelligence. He writes of true immortality, the nature of mind, and how he believes the disorders of man can be cured. He does not advocate fighting against the empire because in doing so one becomes part of the empire, twisted to serve its agenda.

Final Thoughts

A groan of tedium escapes me,
startling the fearful.
Is this a test?
It has to be.
Otherwise I can’t go on.
Draining patience, drain vitality.
This paranoid, paralyzed vampire acts a little old.

But I’m still right here,
giving blood and keeping faith.
And I’m still right here.

Tool – The Patient

Throughout time there have been many people, organizations, and various deities that have asked us to sacrifice our life force for them. Without our blood, these forces would only exist as ideas and abstractions. It is we who give them life by praying for their return or creating the conditions in which their return becomes inevitable. It seems that when you try to kill the devil, he only keeps coming back. So how do we get rid of this cancerous growth that is draining the life from humanity, making us weak and compliant?

Well, we must become well. We need to help each other pump fresh blood through this system and restart the heart of humanity. Perhaps what we need is a transfusion..

Can I drain your body of its fever
Turn my cheek while you are weak and starving
We all know who you are
What you’ve become, you’re a star

Smashing Pumpkins – Drain

There is also another way for restoring humanity – as Thomas Jefferson once said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

(Can’t Stop the Shining)

Then again, bleeding a body is a medical practice that is outdated and ineffective. Another solution could be to use the power of the stars, but too much radiation would destroy the good along with the bad. Maybe the sun’s cycles and “galactic alignment” will do the separating for us. Maybe I shouldn’t stress too much about any “final” solutions. For now, my solution is to rest. Rest is good for the blood.

DANGER! TURN BACK! GO AWAY! THIS SITE IS NOT MEANT FOR YOU!

(Okay, maybe it is for meant for you)

This site contains sensitive information. It has the potential to consume your time, get you flagged for thought crimes, provoke delusions, unleash hidden powers, and alter your everyday behavior.

Star Theory is propaganda, by definition: information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.

Some of the theories put forth on this site might be true, but many of them are not. (What does a bull do when he digests information?) The point is to get you to question the very fundamentals of the world around you. You should be questioning why I am presenting this material to you. What is there for me to gain? If anything, it would seem that this little blog of mine could very easily get me in a heap of trouble. Maybe I’m working for the enemy.. or maybe I know and feel something that gives me strength in the face of great danger.

I am coming to see that there’s always a reason for things happening as they do, even when that reason is not immediately apparent. There is a reason you have come to Star Theory.

You are the stars. You inspire me as you shine through the darkness.

Thanks for joining me on this mysterious adventure through time.

Your author,

Kyle
