The Workings of Fire

July 3, 2011 at 11:54 am (Uncategorized)

This post will explore the symbolic act of shooting fireworks into the sky. The Chinese first invented the rocket thousands of years ago and the technology has since been turned into an instrument of mass murder. The fireworks shot into Americans skies around the 4th of July are usually associated with patriotic songs and the worship of war-ships.

..and the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air..

If you want to learn more about the importance of the date 7/4, then go check out In Dependence of Lucifer over at Great Minds of Today. The above image and associated Anthem are actually taken from The War of 1812. Regardless, a firework could be considered a lucifer of sorts:

1. The archangel cast from heaven for leading the revolt of the angels; Satan.
2. The planet Venus in its appearance as the morning star.
3. lucifer A friction match.

In George A. Romero’s Land of The Dead, henchmen of the ruling human elite shoot off fireworks into the night sky in order to distract the zombies while their supplies are looted and their fellow zombies killed mercilessly.

Riley: [about the fireworks] Put some flowers in the graveyard.
Charlie: Put some flowers in the graveyard. How come you call them that, Riley? I don’t get it. These here ain’t the kind of flowers you lay on the ground, these here are sky flowers. Way up in heaven…
Riley: That’s why I love you, Charlie, ’cause you still believe in heaven.

The Egyptians revered the heavens as the sky goddess Nut.

Surely this seems to where we get words like NUTrition. Maybe I’m nuts, but it could also be the basis for the name of the iNuit and the Latin phrase Annuit Coeptis..

  • ANNUIT means to nod assent, to favor, to smile upon.
  • COEPTIS means undertakings, endeavors, beginnings.

Annuit coeptis means “favors (lit., gives the nod to) undertakings.” The subject must be supplied. Who favors? The Eye (Providence) does. ~Great Seal

Annuit could be a combination of Anu and Nut. Coeptis makes me think of Coitus. Now consider a phrase like “busting a nut.” Bolts are screwed into nuts.

I am beginning to think that fireworks are used to inseminate the sky. I recently wrote Monkey Sea, Monkey Doo and connected balloons to sperm (with the help of Mercury’s Messenger) and saw that they are just “heads and tails.” Chris agreed with my conclusion and added that we symbolically breath life into a balloon. However, in order for a balloon to float into the sky, Helium is required. is MM’s address and although the 23 can stand for many things, the 2nd and 3rd elements are He,Li. Um, isn’t it funny how some things work out so nicely?

The breath of life relates to one of my favorite stories of the Bible, Ezekiel 37:

The hand of the LORD was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign LORD, you alone know.”

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’”

This selection ties into the zombie narrative as well as the kindling of a revolution. I have often felt like Ezekiel, an EZ-Kyle that was shown the powers of spirit. Are the dead being awoken? Maybe this is symbolic of the reincarnation of “old souls” back onto the planet. Perhaps awakening is needed to reconstruct and reconfigure the course of human events as things go astray.

Well tended is humanity – the cattle of the god:
he made sky and earth for their sake,
he subdued the water monster,
he made breath for their noses to live.
They are his images, who came from his body.
He shines in the sky for their sake.
He made for them plants and cattle,
fowl and fish to feed them.
He slew his foes, reduced his children,
when they thought of making rebellion.
He makes daylight for their sake,
he sails by to see them.
He has built his shrine around them,
when they weep he hears.
He made for them rulers in the egg,
leaders to raise the back of the weak.
He made for them magic as weapons,
to ward off the blow of events,
watching over them by day and by night.
He has slain the traitors among them,
as a man beats his son for the sake of his brother.
For the god knows every name.
Instruction of Khety to Merikare, Hymn to Re, 284 – 305.

It is interesting to note the purpose of the rulers in ancient times and why they were given magic. It’s easy to consider how these gifts could be used for selfish reasons and how the most corrupt amongst us could take over the stewardship of the human race. Perhaps there are “other” forces controlling our destiny, but most of our problems could be due to the rule of a false aristocracy, as these people certainly are not “elite,” which is a word that should denote the best, most skilled, and most intelligent of a group. Today “elite” means the most ruthless, perverted, and deranged from amongst us, most of whom have inherited their lofty positions.

Thomas Jefferson wrote about this very same subject in a letter to John Adams in 1813:

For I agree with you that there is a natural aristocracy among men. The grounds of this are virtue and talents. Formerly bodily powers gave place among the aristoi. But since the invention of gunpowder has armed the weak as well as the strong with missile death, bodily strength, like beauty, good humor, politeness and other accomplishments, has become but an auxiliary ground of distinction. There is also an artificial aristocracy founded on wealth and birth, without either virtue or talents; for with these it would belong to the first class. The natural aristocracy I consider as the most precious gift of nature for the instruction, the trusts, and government of society. And indeed it would have been inconsistent in creation to have formed man for the social state, and not to have provided virtue and wisdom enough to manage the concerns of the society. May we not even say that that form of government is the best which provides the most effectually for a pure selection of these natural aristoi into the offices of government? The artificial aristocracy is a mischievous ingredient in government, and provision should be made to prevent it’s ascendancy.

Both Thomas and John died on July 4th, 1826, the 50th anniversary of adoption of The Declaration of Independence. Annuit Coeptis, eh?

    Terence Mckenna said “We are led by the least among us, the least intelligent, the least noble, the least visonary”, couple that with the notion of the Ego as a fabricated, synthetic control mechanism – perfect for consuming the trinkets produced by linear science and commerce. But hopeless at coping with chaos or non-linear reality.

    Methinks that we CAN, WILL and HAVE derailed “Ordo A Chaos”, since some of us thrive in Chaos, seemingly disproportionate to the terror its meant to evoke. Having lived in a zone where civilian rule was suspended for control by a centralized authority, I can say people are far more humane, and far more decent than the Media can imagine, or promote. Much to the chagrin of the ‘Least among us’.

    “Sowing the Seeds of love, Everything is possible….an end to need, and the politics of greed…”, kind puts “Yes we can” to Shame/Sham.
