Exciting news! Tonight I will be joined by Christopher Knowles from The Secret Sun, which is Modern Mythology, Alt-History and Pop-Cult Symbology from the author of the Eagle Award-winning Our Gods Wear Spandex: The Secret History of Comic Book Heroes, published by Red Wheel/Weiser and co-author of The Complete X-Files: Behind the Series, the Myths, and the Movies, published by Insight Editions.

Here is the archived broadcast with Christopher Knowles.

I really enjoyed his perspective and personal experiences in relation to current events. I will write more about this tomorrow and expand this little article with some more material.

Mr. Stack’s letter was posted on embeddedart.com. This is curious to me.

I found the above image from a Google search, which then led me here: http://www.creativereview.co.uk/cr-blog/2009/january/embedded-art , which is not related to Mr. Stack (in an obvious way). There I found the following description:

Embedded Art is an exhibition on show at the Akademi der Künste in Berlin which explores our current obsession with terrorism and security, and features contributions from graphic designers including Barnbrook Design and Neville Brody/Research Studios.

The exhibition brings together 28 specially commissioned projects, all exploring issues relating to security, by artists from Germany, Japan, South Africa, Italy, Slovenia and the UK. Barnbrook Design’s contribution is a series of logos that “seek to highlight the tension between two conflictual domains, between the public and the private spheres,” says Barnbrook.

Okay, now let’s take a look at the definition of embed:

–verb (used with object)

1. to fix into a surrounding mass: to embed stones in cement.
2. to surround tightly or firmly; envelop or enclose: Thick cotton padding embedded the precious vase in its box.
3. to incorporate or contain as an essential part or characteristic: A love of color is embedded in all of her paintings.
4. Histology. to infiltrate (a biological tissue) with molten paraffin or other plastic material that later solidifies, enabling the preparationto be sliced very thin for viewing under a microscope.
5. Mathematics. to map a set into another set.
6. Grammar. to insert (a construction, as a phrase or clause) into a larger construction, as a clause or sentence.

–verb (used without object)

7. to be or become fixed or incorporated, as into a surrounding mass: Glass embeds in the soft tar of the road.

and check out the embedded entry on Wikipedia for more information regarding the term in regard to computer science, the field of work in which Mr. Stack was employed.
And here’s the first definition of art: the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance. (dictionary.com) And you might also want to take a look at ART on Wikipedia.
There are many connections to be made. I hope some intelligent people out there are on the ball and can see what’s happening.

I want to review yesterday a bit. Apparently a guy got really pissed off with the IRS and flew a plane (an air rod) into a CIA/IRS building, leaving behind a 6 page suicide note. It makes a lot of valid points, but some have found the whole situation to wreak of false flag terrorism. Joe Stack Suicide Pilot Conspiracy (from Above Top Secret). Of course Alex Jones and the like were all over this one, especially as it happened in Austin, Texas.

In an effort to add some intelligence to this conversation, let’s consider the last name Stack – as a noun it means the following:

1. a more or less orderly pile or heap: a precariously balanced stack of books; a neat stack of papers.
2. a large, usually conical, circular, or rectangular pile of hay, straw, or the like.
3. Often, stacks. a set of shelves for books or other materials ranged compactly one above the other, as in a library.
4. stacks, the area or part of a library in which the books and other holdings are stored or kept.
5. a number of chimneys or flues grouped together.
6. smokestack.
7. a vertical duct for conveying warm air from a leader to a register on an upper story of a building.
8. a vertical waste pipe or vent pipe serving a number of floors.
9. Informal. a great quantity or number.
10. Radio. an antenna consisting of a number of components connected in a substantially vertical series.
11. Computers. a linear list arranged so that the last item stored is the first item retrieved.
12. Military. a conical, free-standing group of three rifles placed on their butts and hooked together with stacking swivels.
13. Also called air stack, stackup. Aviation. a group of airplanes circling over an airport awaiting their turns to land.
14. an English measure for coal and wood, equal to 108 cubic feet (3 cu. m).
15. Geology. a column of rock isolated from a shore by the action of waves.
16. Games.
a. a given quantity of chips that can be bought at one time, as in poker or other gambling games.
b. the quantity of chips held by a player at a given point in a gambling game.

Well, that sure is interesting, especially considering there were a few other events that were stacked (synced) on top of that news. There was a plane crash in Palo Alto that killed 3 Tesla Motors employees (link). Also, Star Theory had Christopher Knowles (Sta – CK) on the radio station last night talking about the recent rash of “aberrant” behavior among intelligent people.

Not only did I spend a whole bunch of time on 2/17 writing about God Rods and air rods, but I also created a post title Knowing a few hours before I found out about the events of yesterday. This was, of course, because I was having Mr. Knowles on the program – not because I knew what was coming. At least not consciously.

By the way, you might want to review Depth‘s images while listening to last night’s broadcast..

2/21/2010

Another Sunday come and gone. Here is a little nugget I picked out from the old Roman Catholic Bible. On Page 666, we join in on Psalm 144:

send out your arrows and rout them. Stretch out your hand from on high; set me free and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hand of aliens, whose mouths speak lies, and whose right hands are false.

(although “alien” to us, the humans are the aliens on Pandora)

UPDATE: False right hands: Luke and Anakin Skywalker. Also, left is “port.”

He is shooting the bow left-handed. Although right-handed, I own a left-handed bow. I was shooting today. I am pretty good.

2/22/2010

Since I don’t really have anything I’d like to write about, I have collected a few photos from the first page Google image results for 222:

222mystery.com has some more information concerning synchronicity and this number. Big things are also put into place on days like these.

    Some great commentary from my friend Stefanos:

    Can’t post comments on updates of your Blog,
    so figured I’ll do it here.
    Might find this interesting.

    Obviously Embedded Art’s initials are “EA”

    Remember the ancient God EA? (also called ENKI, and later Neptune/Poseidon)

    (Same connections with EA Sports obiously)

    “Ea (known as Lord of Incantations) was the Babylonian god of wisdom, waters, writing, building, farming, magic, and the work of men. He was the god who ruled over the great water (called Apsu in Babylonia). Anshar was his father and Antu was his mother; it is said he had one sibling named Enlil. The mythology of Ea says he married Damkina and they had a child named Marduk. Some ancient tribal myths say Ea spoke the world into reality; for whatever words the god uttered came to be.

    The main temple to Enki is called E-abzu, meaning “abzu temple” (also E-en-gur-a, meaning “house of the subterranean waters””), a ziggurat temple surrounded by Euphratean marshlands near the ancient Persian Gulf coastline at Eridu. He was the keeper of the divine powers called Me, the gifts of civilization. His image is a double-helix snake.

    Considered the master shaper of the world, god of wisdom and of all magic, Enki was characterised as the lord of the Abzu (Apsu in Akkadian, perhaps equivalent of Greek abýssos, English “abyss”), the freshwater sea or groundwater located within the earth.”

    Now he was considered as the Lord of Incantations…

    Definition of Incantation: (Wiki)

    An incantation or incantations are the words spoken during a ritual, either a hymn or prayer invoking or praising a deity, or in magic, occultism, witchcraft with the intention of casting a spell on an object or a person. The term derives from Latin incantare (tr.), meaning “to chant (a magical spell) upon,” from in- “into, upon” and cantare “to sing”.

    In medieval literature, folklore, fairy tales and modern fantasy fiction, enchantments (from the Old French enchantement) are charms or spells. The term was loaned into English since around AD 1300. The corresponding native English term being galdor “song, spell”. It has led to the terms enchanter and enchantress, for those who use enchantments.

    The weakened sense “delight” (compare the same development of charm) is modern, first attested in 1593 (OED).

    In traditional fairy tales or fantasy fiction, an enchantment is a magical spell that is attached, on a relatively-permanent basis, to a specific person, object or location, and alters its qualities, generally in a positive way. The most widely-known example is probably the spell that Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother uses to turn a pumpkin into a coach. An enchantment with negative characteristics is usually instead referred to as a curse.

    Conversely, enchantments are also used to describe spells that cause no real effects but deceive people, either by directly affecting their thoughts or using some kind of illusions. Enchantresses are frequently depicted as able to seduce by such magic. Other forms include deceiving people into believing that they have suffered a magical transformation.

    The Latin incantare, which means ‘to utter an incantation’, or cast a magic spell, forms the basis of the word “enchant”, with deep linguistic roots going back to the Proto-Indo-European kan- prefix. So it can be said that an enchanter or enchantress casts magic spells, or utters incantations, similar to what are called Mantra in Sanskrit.
    ———–
    All of which relates back to “embedding” something within something,
    as well as to the term “Stack” in “Descent Theory” .
    You probably connected this yourself already, but anyway:

    “In mathematics a stack is a concept used to formalise some of the main constructions of descent theory.

    Descent theory is concerned with generalisations of situations where geometrical objects (such as vector bundles on topological spaces) can be “glued together” when they are isomorphic (in a compatible way) when restricted to intersections of the sets in an open covering of a space.”

    Makes you wonder what kind of structure it is that is being “glued together” here…
