Your internet connection failed (UPDATED)

"Breaks in three submarine cables which link Europe and the Middle East have disrupted Internet and international telephone services in parts of the Middle East and South Asia, officials said on Saturday (Dec. 20th 2008)

Residents said Internet service was either non-existent or very slow. The gravity of the outage, caused by breaks in cables in the Mediterranean off Italy, varied from area to area and according to the service provider."


In an ongoing story which must have millions of people tapping their fingers while blankly staring at hourglasses on computer screens, a third under sea communications cable has been found "cut". This time directly off the coast of the world's most bizarre, and fastest growing cities, Dubai.

Officials state that the crippling internet outages will likely not be fixed until February 12th, and that ships anchors are the current suspects...really? Whatever you say...

In a time when financial markets the world over are perched daily on the edge of collapse; this can't be good news. Asia, the Middle East and North Africa have been most effected by the severed cables.

Atlantis making Waves...

Another ATLANTIS resonator [see also "AA Down"], this time from the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas (the older sibling to the Dubai, Atlantis written about by Christopher Knowles in "Behold, Atlantis Rising")...

The shark tank is directly outside the "LEAP OF FAITH"...also, given the historical design of this thing would you REALLY want to get anywhere near it???

Depiction of Aztec Ritual Sacrifice

The female reef shark tumbled down the slide – known as the Leap of Faith – after vaulting the one foot high and 18 in wide barrier around its pool.

Although the creature survived the journey its body could not cope with the chlorinated water in the swimming pool at the bottom of the slide. Rescuers managed to return the 12-year-old shark to its own pool but it died shortly afterwards.

Staff at the Atlantis resort said that guests were never at risk as the water park had yet to open for the morning. The shark posed no threat to humans and regularly swam with guests in its aquarium

"The Atlantis Aquarists believe the shark was startled by an unusual circumstance that we have no way of defining completely. In the over ten years guests have experienced the Leap of Faith, the reef shark itself, harmless to humans as it is fed regularly by our staff, had shown no previous incidences of leaping out of the water in the marine habitat," the resort said in a statement to the TMZ website.

"Once the shark fell onto the slide and into the chlorinated water, it was in significant distress.

"The Marine Aquarium Operations team responded immediately and was able to retrieve the animal at the bottom of the slide and return the animal to the main marine habitat in an attempt to resuscitate her. Despite the team's best efforts to recover the animal, it died shortly after the occurrence.

"The entire team at Atlantis is truly saddened by the loss of this animal who had resided in the Atlantis marine habitat for over ten years."

The Atlantis resort describes itself as a "unique, ocean-themed destination", with 20 million gallons of pools and lagoons, waterfalls, and a marine habitat filled with water filtered from the Atlantic Ocean.

What's in a Name?

I am so, so proud to share a last name with these folks...(let's hope that's all)

EASTON, Pa. (AP) - A supermarket is defending itself for refusing to a write out 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on his birthday cake. Deborah Campbell, 25, of nearby Hunterdon County, N.J., said she phoned in her order last week to the Greenwich ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son's name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.

Karen Meleta, a ShopRite spokeswoman, said the store denied similar requests from the Campbells the last two years, including a request for a swastika.

"We reserve the right not to print anything on the cake that we deem to be inappropriate," Meleta said. "We considered this inappropriate."

The Campbells ultimately got their cake decorated at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, Deborah Campbell said Tuesday.

Wal-Mart spokeswoman Anna Taylor told The Easton Express-Times that the store won't put anything illegal or profane on a cake but thinks it's important to respect the views of customers and employees.

"Our No. 1 priority in decorating cakes is to serve the customer to the best of our ability," Taylor said from Bentonville, Ark.

When reached by The Associated Press, Taylor said she'd call back to provide a comment.

Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name."

The Campbells' two other children are named Joyce Lynn Aryan Nation Campbell, who turns 2 in a few months, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who will be 1 in April.

Campbell said he was raised not to avoid people of other races but not to mix with them socially or romantically. But he said he would try to raise his children differently.

"Say he grows up and hangs out with black people. That's fine, I don't really care," he said. "That's his choice."

He said about 12 people attended the birthday party on Sunday, including several children of mixed race.

I may have to start a WTF? Article just for this one alone...

AA Down

Could it be the...TRIangle?

(CNN) -- Rescue crews scoured the Caribbean Sea on Tuesday for a plane that took off from the Dominican Republic en route to the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Dominican Republic Civil Aviation agency said.

Agency director Jose Tomas Perez said the flight left Santo Domingo at 4:30 p.m. Monday, and the plane later sent out a distress signal to Miami, Florida, that it was experiencing an emergency.

There were 12 people onboard, including the pilot.

The Dominican Republic Aviation Department has been looking for the plane, but rescuers haven't found any trace of it. They have sent out two helicopters and two boats searching for the flight in the hopes of a rescue.

The plane belonged to ATLANTIS Airlines.

Currently, it seems to be unclear if there were 11 or 12 people on board or the actual final destination (TURKS Islands or NYC) based on these two reports.

Reports have now become even more cloudy on this missing flight...considered a mystery...

WTC: World TRIDENT Center

With all due respect to photographer Ingrid Heldt and fellow researcher Steve Willner who have referenced the World Trade Center's unique three pronged base design as a "tuning fork" (I am personally not familiar with ANY three pronged Tuning Forks nor do I know if such an object would even physically produced the desired effect) , I must insist that the design is much more appropriately a TRIDENT...An article posted to the WTC's own website from the September 4th, 2007 N.Y. Times clearly states the intent, and future use of Trident symbolism to the 9/11 event...

Trident True Symbol

Two of the World Trade Center's TRIDENTS - a signature architectural element from the base of the Twin Towers - will be returned to the Memorial Plaza at Ground Zero, where they will stand sentry inside the museum pavilion, The Post has learned.

The massive steel tridents, standing up to nine stories tall, have been chosen as the iconic symbols that will be seen by millions of visitors expected to arrive at the World Trade Center Memorial after it opens in late 2009.

Since the early days of planning for the memorial, designers had been urged to include an iconic artifact as part of the public plaza at the memorial, said Alice Greenwald, director of the World Trade Center Museum.

"We looked at a number of different artifacts, and we all felt the tridents epitomized something accurate about the event, but also hopeful," Greenwald said of efforts to memorialize the events of 9/11, while painting an inspiring message of rebirth.

The tridents were formed by massive steel beams rising from the base of the towers along the outside walls. At the seventh story, the aluminum-clad beams divided into three smaller beams that continued to the 110th floor of each tower.

After the terror attacks, several sections of the towers' lower facade, including the tridents, remained standing and were eventually dismantled and removed. Some of the tridents were among the artifacts placed in storage inside Hangar 17 at JFK Airport. Greenwald said the tridents that stood after the attack are a "visual reference to the buildings that withheld and outlasted all the damage of that day."

In order to be carted off the WTC site, the beams had to be cut into 30-foot lengths to fit onto trucks. Once returned to the memorial, the pieces will be reassembled, said World Trade Center Memorial Foundation President Joseph Daniels.

Placed within the glass-walled museum pavilion, the tridents will rise up to 90 feet and will weigh about 90 tons each, Daniels said.

"These tridents in their raw form, without the aluminum cladding, are in many ways quite beautiful," Daniels said. "We expect them to be here as a signpost for the next 100 years."

The tree-lined plaza and memorial are due to open around September 2009. The museum will open about a year later.

In one of his many recent workings on the Mumbai Massacre, Ben Fairhall brings to light some details which in my mind now directly connects Mumbai to Manhattan, and thus 9/11. The Oberoi Hotel or The TRIDENT Tower which served as one of the (10?) targets of gunmen who took the city hostage on Nov. 27th, overlooks an area of lower Mumbai known as The Queen's Necklace in very similar fashion to the postioning of the former WTC Towers and The Emerald Necklace (thanks James Ratte comments from The Daily Behemoth) of lower Manhattan Island. According to Fairhall's "Dark Towers" post " The resonantly-named Nariman Point is nearby [The Oberoi Hotel], 'the Manhattan of India'.

Hit the Snooze Alarm

Have you even bothered to look at the news lately? "They" aren't even trying to hide it anymore...the gloves are off, the fist fight is underway.

Helter Skelter II: Strange Days Indeed

The recent number of Beatles related milestones and symbolism perhaps reached a head last week during the anniversary of the notorious WHITE album (the 40th). The less obvious and yet powerful timing of the Mumbai Massacre on November 27th, 2008 holds a karmic connection with the boys from Liverpool, who, for anyone familiar enough with their story will recall the love affair the Fab Four had with India in 1968 (40 years ago) during their albeit brief flirtation with Transcendental Meditation under the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It was also back in February of this year (2008) that the Beatles track "Across the Universe" was beamed into outer space on the exact day of the passing of the Maharishi in his residence in The Netherlands.

According to Jay Randolph Coplin [Coplin, J.R. (1990)Text and Context in the Communication of a Social Movement's Charisma, Ideology, and Consciousness: TM for India and the West. University of California, San Diego, p. 48], the name "Mahesh" indicated that Maharishi came from a Hindu family that worshipped SHIVA.

Stories abound as to what exactly happened to make The Beatles part ways from the Maharishi, from Ringo & John's dislike of the strict vegetarian diet, to the "supposed" rumors of a sexual attack by the Maharishi upon fellow follower MIA FARROW or perhaps another young American woman and not upon Farrow herself. Whatever the true case may be, what we do know is that over 30 songs were written or developed during their stay. Many of which would appear on the unnamed WHITE covered album that only a short time later would take on a rather BLACK reputation (more on this next time). It is important to note here that musicians Mike Love of The Beach Boys and Donovan were also avid followers of the Maharishi during this time as well.

27 (the date of the Mumbai Massacre) was also a number of HIGH significance to John Lennon as was laid out in Loren Coleman's "Coincidence 27" article dealing with the newly released film about Mark David Chapman and the murder of Lennon entitled "Chapter 27".

The film's title refers to Mark David Chapman's alleged obsession with J.D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye. The title implies that Chapman's killing of Lennon was a continuation of the book, which only has 26 chapters, and which Chapman was carrying (as his "statement") when he shot Lennon. Chapman appears to have attempted to model (copycat) his life after the novel's anti-hero Holden Caulfield.

According to the December 2007 issue of the British music magazine Mojo and the Spanish language newsweekly Proceso, the film's title was further inspired by Chapter 27 of Robert Rosen's book Nowhere Man: The Final Days of John Lennon. Rosen's book examines the numerological meaning of 27, “the triple 9,” a number of profound importance to John Lennon. Lennon was deeply interested in numerology, particularly via Cheiro’s Book of Numbers, and by the number nine and all its multiples.

What might have been lost in all of this is that several tracks from The White album were recorded at TRIDENT Studios, located at 17 St. Anne's Court [see Christopher Knowles for more on the number 17], in the Soho district of London. Saint Anne (also Ann or Anna), of David's house and line, was the mother of the Virgin Mary, according to Christian tradition. Of the famous artists to have recorded at Trident Studios, an impressive number were born in the year 1947...most notably David Bowie, Marc Bolan (T Rex), Elton John, Ron Wood (The Rolling Stones) and Brian May (Queen).

Although the year 1947 may seem rather random even in the world of synchronicity, what we do know is that several things stand out which cannot be overlooked. The first being the cycle of UFO events to unfold in the United States. The second, the death of "The Great Beast" himself, Aleister Crowley (December 1st). As a side note current high profile political players Hillary Clinton & Arnold Schwarzenegger were also both born in 1947.

Researcher Loren Colman (himself born in '47) relates the following on the "UFO Wave of 1947":

Of course, it began in the nation's consciousness with Kenneth Arnold's June 24, 1947 sighting of nine (!) crescent-shaped (!) objects flying in a chain near Mount Rainier, Washington. The newspapers called them "flying saucers" but it is significant they were not "saucers" but crescents or half-MOONS.

Arnold said they moved from Mt. Rainer to Mt. Adams where they faded from view, a distance of about 50 miles, in one minute and forty-two seconds, according to the clock on his instrument panel.

While the Kenneth Arnold sighting and date are given as the "birthdate" of the modern Flying Saucer Era, it is the Maury Island Incident, three days before the Arnold encounter, which is rather important to ponder. As you know, with the links between various actors (e.g. Fred Crisman, Guy Banister) at Maury Island and then the JFK assassination, July 1947 turns in a key performance as a precusor to November 1963.

Needless to say, Roswell, NM, "happened" in July 1947 too. Despite the terrible graphics, here's a quick timeline:

John Lennon who passed away December 8th, 1980 at the age of 40 referenced his own 1974 UFO visitation over Central Park in New York in two songs... "Like a UFO you came to me, and blew away life's misery..." - Out of the Blue, from the album Mind Games.


"There's UFO's over New York, and I ain't too surprised..." - Nobody Told Me, from the album Milk and Honey

to be continued...

Helter Skelter Part I: Indian Style

As the bloodshed of the Mumbai Massacre (aka India's 9/11?) settles into the collective conscious, and media reports attempt to make sense of the 60 hour standoff which saw the deaths of over 200, spread across 10 locations and supposedly carried out by roughly 15 individuals...the world waits to see if the fish will take the worm. Has India been baited (9/11=False Flag) to strike at their neighbor Pakistan, yet again?

Without going into a massive history lesson, two things stand out when we Peer Through the Looking Glass... the signals are there ...1947 and the TRIDENT.

Britannia with TRIDENT in Greenwich, England (Maritime Signals)

Pakistan and India gained independence from Britannia collectively on August 14th and 15th, 1947. Within two months the two countries declared war upon one another on October 20th. It is my belief (as well as others) that 1947 is perhaps one of the most highly significant years in modern history (more on this next time!). It is also during this time that the mystical region known as KASHMIR was divided, and remains one of the most hotly contested areas on the planet.

One of the symbolic landmarks [along with the Taj Mahal & Oberoi TRIDENT Hotels] connected with the attacks is The Gateway of India, which was built to commemorate a December visit to then Bombay by King George V and Queen MARY in 1911... The GATE was opened on December 4, 1924

The Gateway of India with Taj Mahal hotel to the left...

We skip ahead... to roughly on or about December 3rd, 1971, and the start of the Indo-Pakistani War . The Indian Navy launched a highly successful MARITIME attack on the Pakistani port city of Karachi, known as Operation TRIDENT. Only 5 days later India would carry out Operation Python effectively crippling Pakistan economically, and ending the War in less than 10 days. December 4th is now celebrated as Navy (Maritime) Day across India.

The hermaphrodite Shiva...The Destroyer?

We see that the TRIDENT of Shiva plays an important role in the unfolding drama of the region. Shiva the Destroyer...another symbol associated with Lord Shiva is the cresent MOON (Chandra). On October 22nd, 2008 India launched and successfully landed (the evening of Nov. 14th) the Chandrayaan-1 probe on the Moon...making it only the 5th Country to do so, leavingG. Madhavan Nair (head of the Indian Space Research Organization) to say "We have given the moon to India."

The Israeli BARACK (Lightning) Missile

4 days after the Indian MOON landing, on November 18th, an Indian warship using BARACK missiles, the INS Tabar (AX), sank a vessel in the Gulf of Aden which was thought to be a pirate "MOTHERSHIP". The Indian Navy deployed the DESTROYER INS Mysore earlier this week to fight pirates in the region. Mysore is an anglicized version of Mahishūru, which means the abode of Mahisha. Mahisha stands for Mahishasura, a demon from the Hindu mythology.

Aboard the Indian Navy's INS Trishul (Trident)

Oddly, the cresent moon is actually considered the "New Moon" in older traditions such as the Vedic and Judiac, and yet The Western "New Moon" was at it's lowest level of Illumination at 10:25 pm Mumbai time on the evening of November 27th, 2008. The Maritime based attacks in Mumbai are said to have begun around 9:15pm and to have subsided for the night at around 10:50...roughly placing the MOON at it's dimest as blood rained down across Mumbai.

The cresent moon worn always at Shiva's crown (head) is said to connect Shiva to SOMA:

from wikipedia...
In Hindu art, the god Soma was depicted as a bull or bird, and sometimes as an embryo, but rarely as an adult human. In Hinduism, the god Soma evolved into a lunar deity. [Isis/Ishtar/Mary] The moon is the cup from which the gods drink Soma, and so Soma became identified with the moon god Chandra. A waxing moon meant Soma was recreating himself, ready to be drunk again. Alternatively, Soma's twenty-seven wives were the star goddesses, the Nakshatras - daughters of the cosmic progenitor Daksha - who told their father that he paid too much attention to just one of them, Rohini. Daksha subsequently cursed Soma to wither and die, but the wives intervened and the death became periodic and temporary, and is symbolized by the waxing and waning of the moon.

Terence McKenna, the former esoteric psychedelic enthusiast and intellectual, believed that soma was a hallucinogen, but was puzzled by its apparent complete, cultural disappearance . "The 9th Mandala of the Rig Veda especially goes into great detail about Soma and states that Soma stands above the Gods. Soma is the supreme entity."

There are numerous mountain regions in the northwest Indian subcontinent which have cool and dry conditions where soma plant can grow. In later Vedic texts the mention of best soma plant coming from Kashmir has been mentioned. This is also supported by the presence of high concentration of Vedic Brahmans in Kashmir up to the present day who settled there in ancient times because of the easy availability of soma plant.

New archeological discovery of ancient Aryan ruins found in Turkmenistan has shown that soma was probably coming from their culture. Archeological researches show that Aryan soma drink consisted of mixture of opium, cannabis and Ephedra.

From the late 1960s onwards, several studies attempted to establish soma as a psychoactive substance. A number of proposals were made, including an important one in 1968 by R. Gordon Wasson, an amateur mycologist, who asserted that soma was an inebriant, and suggested fly-agaric mushroom, Amanita muscaria, as the likely candidate. Wasson and his co-author, Wendy Doniger O'Flaherty, drew parallels between Vedic descriptions and reports of Siberian uses of the fly-agaric in shamanic ritual.

In Aldous Huxley's dystopian novel Brave New World, Soma is a popular dream-inducing drug. It provides an easy escape from the hassles of daily life and is employed by the government as a method of control through pleasure.

It came to light earlier this week through toxicology reports, and syringes found on the scene that the suspected gunmen had traces of LSD, Cocaine and other amphetamine/steroids in their blood systems...

The "official" story is that these "highly" trained Islamic "terrorists" (for which drugs and alcohol are strictly forbidden) used this bizarre cocktail to stay awake during their siege of Mumbai. Personally, I can't think of a worse drug choice than LSD to ingest before going on a commando-style killing spree...besides the obviously mind-altering hallucinatory effects, the mix might have had legs for 12 to 15 hours but then it would likely have required another 12 to 15 hour period to sleep it off; without them being literally dead on their feet...something doesn't add up here. It is my belief that perhaps these individuals had attempted to create their own bathtub batch of SOMA, looking for diviness from The DESTROYER in their acts...however, this would more likely mean the men were of the Hindu faith (or none at all) and not radical Muslims.

At the very least, an inside job...

PLEASE don't forget to read Loren Coleman's "India's 911: Synchronicity and Coincidence in Mumbai" or Ben Fairhall's "Mumbai Reflections" & his newest, "The Dark Tower".

Next time we follow the TRIDENT into the psychedelic 1960's...

December 5th, 2007: Don't Cross Dick

Following up on the Anne Pressly, December 5th 2007 connection some VERY intriguing new developments have surfaced...

It was announced late last night that a suspect in the brutal beating/murder of the Arkansas anchorwoman had been arrested. However, the story doesn't stop there...

Little Rock - Little Rock Police called a press conference at 10pm Wednesday night and named Curtis Lavell Vance as a suspect in the murder of KATV morning anchor Anne Pressly. Shortly after, Vance was captured.

Vance was arrested at a house on 24th and Cross St in Little Rock, after police received a tip-off. Police say the car he was driving was located at 20th and Pulaski.

Vance, 28 years old, of MARIANNA, Arkansas, is accused of capital murder.

Earlier Wednesday night, Police Chief Stuart Thomas said Vance had fled his Marianna home with a woman and three young children. Vance was believed armed with a 9mm pistol, and police said he had plenty of ammunition. [Keep in mind that Pressly was NOT shot]

Police offered neither a reason for the attack nor any details about why Vance was suspected of the murder. [Keep in mind that it was reported that there was NO evidence at the home of Anne Pressly]

Pressly was attacked and severely beaten in her home on October 20th, and died October 25th.

(Portions Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

What HAS come to light earlier in the week is that Anne Pressly's medical records were breached through St. Vincent Health System, and six people have been fired as a result. The highly private medical records were accessed by up to 8 individuals since her death on October 25th.

In statements issued by chief executive and system President, Peter Banko said he encountered a similar situation when he served as vice president of a Texas hospital system in 2006.

One of the hospitals in the system had as a patient Harry Whittington, who was accidentally shot and wounded by Vice President Dick Cheney while hunting in Texas.

"The same thing happened in that instance," Mr. Banko said. "People got curious and accessed things they shouldn't have accessed. And we did the same thing then: We terminated them." [I bet PEOPLE got curious]

More likely Dick's hands as claimed but a pattern emerges nonetheless...

Interesting connection, as it was VP Dick Cheney whom is directly connected to Anne Pressly via the December 5th, 2007 encounter in Arkansas which would place her in the limelight nationally that fateful day; and may have directly influenced her casting in Oliver Stone's film "W."

Do NOT forget that Dick Cheney has been outed by former CIA Sex Slave Cathy O'Brien [see her book Trance-Formation of America] for his "supposed" involvement in hunting women for his own amusement...referred to as "The Most Dangerous Game". The infamous "naked woman" appearing in the reflection of his sunglasses on a fishing trip also surfaced online [although I have no reason to buy this] which at the VERY least represents a trail of possible behavior from the VICE President. Was Anne Pressly more intimately involved with Dick Cheney after their "chance" encounter on December 5th, 2007??? Did she wind up dead as a result? Worth a look...

Trident Alert: Mumbai Massacre

The Indian trident or Trishula of the Lord Shiva

It's been well over a year since my last TRIDENT Alert but developments overnight in Mumbai, India (formerly recognized as Bombay) have resurrected these extremely violent events. A well coordinated siege at 10 or more locations around the metropolitan financial center has claimed the lives of 125 people, while official reports as to an end of the bloody standoff have changed throughout the morning. Fires, gunfire and explosions raged on as Thanksgiving Day dawned in the United States.

The Oberoi TRIDENT Hotel was one of the targeted sites along with the majestic 105 year old Taj Mahal Hotel (according to wikipedia, The Beatles and Elvis Presley are listed among the famous guests to have stayed here), as well as a hospital, train station and a Jewish center.

The actual Taj Mahal is located in Agra, India and was constructed in 1648. It served as a mausoleum, and was built during the rule of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.

It is believed that the assault on Mumbai originated as a water based operation. The perpetrators are thought to have deployed from a ship, the MV Alpha, in smaller speed boats filled with caches of weapons and ammunition.

Obviously this is an ongoing event...does the mystical region of KASHMIR play into what is unfolding in Mumbai currently? Also, see Goro Adachi's ETEMENANKI for his unique take on what is being dubbed "The Mumbai Massacre" by the media.

RE-VOLT-U-tion 9

More Beatles magick since my post SIRIUSLY?

Last week marked the 4oth Anniversary of The Beatles "WHITE Album" (the 9th Beatles album) a move that seemed to mirror last year's Templar Forgiveness event, the Vatican has forgiven the Fab 4, and Lennon specifically for the now legendary comments he made just over 40 years ago (1966) in which he stated, "Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that. I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now. I don't know which will go first – rock'n'roll or Christianity."

Aug. 27th 1966 Saturday Evening Post. The Beatles, Batman (see Killing Joke), and Martin Luther KING

According to the Saturday, November 22nd edition of the Vatican newspaper Osservatore Romano "The remark by John Lennon... sounds only like a 'boast' by a young working-class Englishman faced with unexpected success, after growing up in the legend of Elvis and rock and roll."

In an interview with CNN, author of "The Gospel According to The Beatles" Steve Turner had this to say about the power the band held during the mid-sixties.

Q: How spiritual were the Beatles?

A: The Beatles started out as atheists and agnostics and I think as everybody knows they became more interested in spiritual things. They went out to India in 1968 and I think in a way the Beatles became a spiritual force themselves. And I think that John actually saw that. He saw Christianity and rock'n'roll as competitors. Only three years later, after 1966, you had the Woodstock festival and you get rock music almost performing a religious function. So I think in a way he was aware of what was happening. The Beatles were almost becoming a religion and exerting a spiritual force over people.

In related news, two days later (11/24/2008) Paul McCartney released his third CD [entitled Electric Arguments] of experimental music under the name "The Fireman", along with former KILLING JOKE bassist turned producer Martin "Youth" Glover.

Anyone familiar with the work of Christopher Knowles or the Heath Ledger/Dark Knight saga earlier this year might appreciate a Beatles/Killing Joke collaboration.

I would also recommend Loren Coleman's "Coincidence 27" for topics related to The White Album and The Beatles...

"Double" Deception?

Double, Double toil and trouble...

Scientology is back in the news...last week, scoring a huge victory in Germany (where they are absolutely despised), after attempts to ban the quasi-religion were abandoned.

And then, the bizarre Swords vs. Scientology incident at the infamous Hollywood Scientology Centre Sunday (11/23/2008), where disgruntled former member Mario Majorski met his end at the hands of a gun wielding security guard after he supposedly began attacking with "a pair" of Samurai Swords.

The story gets better however, as Mr. Majorski had a past history with Scientology...during his younger days as a student, and active member of the group, he attempted to bring a lawsuit (the main tool of Scientology) against UCLA and a psychiatry professor there by the name of LOUIS West. West, a "so-called" expert in brainwashing [and accused MKultra programmer himself] was openly critical of Scientology, calling it a "pyramid scheme". Majorski "accused West of activities, including speaking to anti-cult groups, that transgressed the separation of church and state and interfered with Majorski's practice of religion." The suit was thrown out of court in 1993.

Maritime Signals Unleashed as Religion

Then there is this from the Operation Clambake Message board:

Dr. Louis Jolyon "Jolly" West and his Strange Career

John Sandbrook related an incredibly ridiculous story, one so connected to the cryptic science of the sixties, it’s darkly comical. Dr. Louis Jolyon West, during the early sixties prior to his arrival at UCLA, performed an experiment wherein he allegedly injected a 7,000 pound elephant with around 1,435 times a heavy human dosage of LSD. The elephant died.

Dr. West's career can best be described as labyrinthine, with the areas of his research covering a vast array of mental health concerns.

Dr. West devoted much energy to the study of alcoholism, hallucinatory drugs, sleep-deprivation, and violent behavior. He also researched the “hippie” culture. Many people resent his research, vexing groups with anti-psychiatric agendas such as the Church of Scientology, while others regard him as something of hero to psychiatry. West advocated human rights and was an expert on cults and brainwashing, serving as an expert witness in the Patricia Hearst case.

After a position at the University of Oklahoma as head of the Department of Psychiatry, Neurology and Behavioral Sciences that began in 1954, Dr. West came to UCLA to become director of the Neuropsychiatric Institure and chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences in 1969.

"We are the One's We've Been Waiting for..."

Step aside Orwell, Huxley and you lot...a Brazilian sci-fi novel, O Presidente Negro written in 1926 by Monteiro Lobato shares a number of interesting details in common with our recent Presidential election. I'm not sure how it slipped past the eso-research crowd, and it's rather old hat at this moment but rather fascinating regardless.

Hip-hop act "Visionaries" released 10/03/2006. Notice anything ODD with the "O" symbolism?

This article ran back in September 2008 at written by :

Monteiro Lobato is a household name in his native Brazil, best-known for "Sítio do Picapau Amarelo" ("Yellow Woodpecker's Ranch"), a series of children's books that has been adapted for television on several occasions. He was an active businessman and libertarian and is considered the founder of Brazil's publishing industry, but his 1926 science-fiction novel, O Presidente Negro (The Black President)—which foresaw technological, geopolitical, and environmental transformations—is attracting the most interest this year, since it anticipated a political landscape in which gender and race would determine the outcome of a U.S. presidential election.

O Presidente Negro envisions the 2228 U.S. presidential election. In that race, the white male incumbent, President Kerlog, finds himself running against Evelyn Astor, a white feminist, and James Roy Wilde, the cultivated and brilliant leader of the Black Association, "a man who is more than just a single man ... what we call a leader of the masses."

You may notice some similarities to the John McCain-Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama face-off; and so did Editora Globo, the publisher of O Presidente Negro, which reissued the novel during the Democratic primaries in a stroke of marketing genius. Prior to Obama's rise, O Presidente Negro was best-known as an odd sci-fi work, predicting the U.S. government's use of eugenics, a racist ideology that had attracted a following in Brazil at the time Lobato was writing (and, later, in Germany). As a result of this association, more often than not, bookstores hid the novel at the bottom of a stack of titles in the Brazilian-literature section. (Today's Brazil is increasingly concerned with civil rights, as indicated by recent experiments with affirmative action in education and government.)

Of course, there are several differences between Lobato's story and the circumstances surrounding the 2008 election. In Lobato's fictional world, the United States prohibited the mixing of races—believing it would lead to "disintegration" or "denaturalization"—and thereby conserved white and black races in "a state of relative purity." Lobato also failed to predict the civil rights movement, which undid his predictions of an extreme version of "separate but equal." Unlike Roy, born in a supposed age of "pure races," Obama, born of a white mother and black father, witnessed America's social revolution.

In the 2228 of the novel, the white women's party, the Sabinas (a reference to the Roman legend of the rape of the Sabine women), has apparently reached feminism's pinnacle: Women are no longer considered equal to men—they are simply different and entirely independent. Homo, the ruling white men's party, and the Sabinas each command 51 million voters.

In previous elections, voters sided with their gender, with no regard to race. But with the creation of the Black Association, black men and women unite to create the largest political party, giving Roy 54 million supporters. Kerlog is forced to broker an alliance with Roy: black votes in exchange for easing the "Código da Raça" ("Race Code"), which set limits on the growth of the black population through selective breeding and genetic manipulation. To Kerlog's frustration, when the time comes to cast ballots, citizens loyally vote with their identity group, and the black man wins the presidency.

In response, Kerlog threatens race war. He persuades Astor to protect the interests of the white race and encourages an alliance. Lobato, at his most sexist, writes that Astor accepts this proposal on the grounds that man "is woman's husband for thousands of reasons ... long live man!" With hardly a second thought, she shepherds the 51 million female voters to the cause of the Homo Party. Kerlog demonstrates to a despairing Roy that his race will never assume control, and on the morning Roy is set to assume the presidency, he is found dead in his office. (Lobato hints at murder.) Kerlog calls for a re-election and emerges victorious. White leaders then mastermind the end of the black race in America, using a senseless and tragic sterilization technique, and Roy's dream of serving as the first black man in the nation's most powerful post is left by the wayside. Long considered a historical relic, O Presidente Negro's popularity had dwindled so much that Editora Globo let it fall out of print, but 6,000 copies have been sold since a March 2008 rerelease. Brazil's intellectuals, bookworms, and bloggers are now madly debating Lobato's racist proposition and gasping at the prescience of one of their country's most quixotic personalities.

Researcher Christopher Knowles (among others) current MEME on SIRIUS bring up a quite profound observation of the DOG STAR being a binary star and therefore it acts a mirror of itself. According to Knowles..."We're seeing a lot of twin numbers in this whole saga. Remember that Sirius is a binary star. A fact which I'm beginning to believe may lie at the root of all of the twin/dual symbolism we see in esotericism..."

...or one could contend an "As above, so below" resonator. I find myself in full agreement currently, as further research into the current wave of SIRIUS related symbolism has uncovered yet another anomaly connected to the date of December 5th, 2007.

Another event on that date which now seems to be mirroring ahead in time was the sudden death of world famous composer Karlheinz what, right? Perhaps, until you consider that Stockhausen's highly experimental works (and theories) influenced an entire generation of musicians, including The Beatles; who would include his face on the infamous Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band album.

Earlier this week, we learned that ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney would like to release one of the most mythical of perhaps all thier known recordings, "The Carnival of LIGHT" a close to 14-minute experimental piece recorded in 1967 for the Million Volt Light and Sound Rave. According to McCartney "it does exist" and "the time has come for it to get it's moment"

The piece was inspired, McCartney says, by the works of composers John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen. In his book Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, author Mark Lewisohn - who was played the track in 1987 - describes 'distorted, hypnotic drum and organ sounds, a distorted lead guitar, the sound of a church organ, various effects (water gargling was one) and, perhaps most intimidating of all, Lennon and McCartney screaming and bawling random phrases including "Are you all right?" and '"Barcelona!".'

From the Nov. 17th edition of The Star PHOENIX
"In order for Carnival of Light to be released, McCartney would have to get the agreement of Ringo STARR and the estates of John Lennon and George Harrison. According to the BBC, McCartney had wanted to include the track on The Beatles' Anthology compilations in the mid-1990s, but the rest of the band vetoed the idea."

...this would come on the heels of McCartney dismissing another Beatle legend just the week prior, when he shot down claims of the "smoking gun" to the identity of song namesame "Eleanor Rigby".

CD cover for Stockhausen's SIRIUS

Stockhausen composed the science fictionesque theatrical opera SIRIUS ...SIRIUS had been commissioned by the West German Government in 1975 for the bicentenial festivities in the United States, and was performed live at the Albert Einstein Spacearium on July 15th, 1976. An interesting title he selected for our countries Anniversary, no?

Stockhausen's own drawing to chart the flow of the SIRIUS work.

Wikipedia provides some other interesting background on the SIRIUS project, and for a fantasic overview of Stockhausen's SIRIUS read this article:

When Stockhausen's daughter, Julika (aged 5 or 6 at the time), asked for a dog, he obtained one for her and named it Sirius, after the star in the constellation Canis Major, which was in his mind because he had just finished composing Sternklang ("Star-sound", 1971). Shortly afterward, he chanced upon a passage in a book by Jakob Lorber describing Sirius as the sun at the center of our universe, and this fired his imagination:

Other snippets of vitally important information then came to me through a couple of revelatory dreams. Crazy dreams, from which it emerged that not only did I come from Sirius itself, but that, in fact, I completed my musical education there.

Stockhausen never explained these dreams in detail , maintaining that "It would lead to misunderstanding and false interpretation". In the composer’s imagination, for beings from the planets of the Sirius system, "everything is music, or the art of co-ordination and harmony of vibrations. . . . The art is very highly developed there, and every composition on Sirius is related to the rhythms of nature . . . the seasons, the rhythms of the stars." Stockhausen’s composition therefore is based on "the cycles and rhythms of nature—of the seasons—with all of their characteristics, and to the planets, animals, and to the twelve main characters of human beings"

It is interesting to note that the above mentioned Jakob Lorber, a Christian mystic & visionary, was oft critisized for his use of anti-semetic rants...while it is generally accepted that Stockhausen himself had spent much of his life trying to rid himself of the memories of having lost his institutionalized mother to the Nazi eugenics program.

In my "December, 5th 2007 Revisited" article, I attempted to show how events which took place on that date might somehow be reflecting into recent events unfolding, and PERHAPS the rise in neo-Nazi subtext that appears to be following along side the Barack Obama VICTORY in the U.S. Presidental campaign. The Austrian/Italian celebration of "Krumpus" on Dec. 5th might just be the tip of the symbolism surrounding this date, as it also served as the Faunus or Day of Pan in Ancient Rome.

It becomes virtually impossible to bring up PAN without mentioning ole Aleister Crowley [also found on the cover of Sgt. Pepper] who wrote the famous "Hymn to Pan" and about The Night of Pan in The Book of Lies, and Liber VII. In his commentary from the chapter "Sabbath of the Goat" in The Book of Lies, Crowley gives the following explaination:

It is explained that this triad lives in Night, the Night of Pan, which is mystically called N.O.X., and this O is identified with the O in this word. N is the Tarot symbol, Death; and the X or Cross is the sign of the Phallus. NOX adds to 210, which symbolizes the reduction of duality to unity, and thence to negativity, and is thus a hieroglyph of the Great Work.
The word Pan is then explained, {Pi}, the letter of Mars, is a hieroglyph of TWO PILLARS, and therefore suggest duality; A, by its shape, is the pentagram, energy, and N, by its Tarot attribution, is death. NOX is then further explained, and it is shown that the ultimate Trinity, O!, is supported, or fed, by the process of death and begetting, which are the laws of the universe...It is then asserted that the ultimate letter A has two names, or phases, Life and Death.
For you synchromaniax out there, this Crowlian interpretation of PAN falls directly in line with the early video work of Jake Kotze and a deeper written investigation at The Stygian Port entitled "Pan's Labyrinth".

This brings us to Stockhausen again, and comments he made publically after the events of 911 . Without going into too much detail, his seven part opera LICHT (LIGHT) composed between 1977 & 2003 follows the archetypes Michael, Lucifer and Eve as it's main characters, and is the basis for the references that follow.

In a press conference in Hamburg [The Beatles yet again...?] on 16 September 2001, Stockhausen was asked by a journalist whether the characters in Licht were for him "merely some figures out of a common cultural history" or rather "material appearances". The composer replied, "I pray daily to Michael, but not to Lucifer. I have renounced him. But he is very much present, like in New York recently". The same journalist then asked how the events of September 11th had affected him, and how he viewed reports of the attack in connection with the harmony of humanity represented in Hymnen [released in 1967, the same year the Beatles recorded "Carnival of Light"]. He answered:

Well, what happened there is, of course—now all of you must adjust your brains—the biggest work of art there has ever been. The fact that spirits achieve with one act something which we in music could never dream of, that people practise ten years madly, fanatically for a concert. And then die. [Hesitantly.] And that is the greatest work of art that exists for the whole Cosmos. Just imagine what happened there. There are people who are so concentrated on this single performance, and then five thousand people are driven to Resurrection. In one moment. I couldn't do that. Compared to that, we are nothing, as composers. [...] It is a crime, you know of course, because the people did not agree to it. They did not come to the "concert". That is obvious. And nobody had told them: "You could be killed in the process."

As a result of the reaction to the press report of Stockhausen's comments, a four-day festival of his work in Hamburg was canceled. In addition, his pianist daughter announced to the press that she would no longer appear under the name "Stockhausen".

In a subsequent message, he stated that the press had published "false, defamatory reports" about his comments, and clarified as follows:

At the press conference in Hamburg, I was asked if Michael, Eve and Lucifer were historical figures of the past and I answered that they exist now, for example Lucifer in New York. In my work, I have defined Lucifer as the cosmic spirit of rebellion, of anarchy. He uses his high degree of intelligence to destroy creation. He does not know love. After further questions about the events in America, I said that such a plan appeared to be Lucifer's greatest work of art. Of course I used the designation "work of art" to mean the work of destruction personified in Lucifer. In the context of my other comments this was unequivocal.

Back in February of this year, The Beatles were also creating quite a stir...for my incapsulated version of events and posts by other researchers click the link for "Happiness is a Warm Sun".

Coming up, I'll be taking a much closer look at Crowley & Thelema's "Night of Pan" and how it could relate directly to our current state of affairs as presented by Goro Adachi in his newest article "Mayan Palingenesis".
