They've got their EYE on you

Next time you're in Baghdad (say maybe sometime in 2012 after the supposed troop withdrawl in 2011) vacationing you might be surprised to see one of the newest EYES sweeping the globe, thats right Baghdad is constructing it's very own giant Ferris Wheel.

"BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraq is calling on companies to submit designs to build a giant Ferris wheel in Baghdad—the latest in a string of lavish proposals painting the capital as a leisure friendly city.

The Ferris wheel, dubbed the Baghdad Eye, will soar more than 650 feet over the city and feature air-conditioned compartments that would each carry up to 30 passengers, Baghdad municipal spokesman Adel al-Ardawi said Wednesday."

Researcher Matthew Delooze has done some very interesting writing on the subject [found here]. The following is an excerpt that provides a basic idea of what the symbolic nature of these structures is:

"The pyramid shape was known as the ‘Benben’ to the ancients. The top part of an obelisk (pyramid shape) is known as the ‘Benben Stone’. Briefly, the Benben is symbolic of the marker point where the ancient Sun God RA landed on dry land after being guided there, in a solar boat, by Nun the God of the watery chaos. The pyramid shape represents the very first mound of Earth formed and ruled over by Ra. This Benben or pyramid shape is said to have rose out of the water."

"Symbolically a Ferris wheel on or near water, and one that can be shaped into a pyramid, represents Ra rising out of the watery chaos. The circle symbolises a solar disc (The Sun). The ancients believed everything was created from the chaos which was symbolised by dark waters. The Ferris wheel, or should I say the illuminated symbolism on the Ferris wheel, is over the sea on the pier at Blackpool, therefore the symbolism on the wheel, especially the pyramid shape shown on the wheel below, can be interpreted as the first mound of earth rising from the watery chaos."

Currently under construction: The Southern Star/Australia, The Great Berlin Wheel/Germany, and Beijing Great Wheel/China...

A GOD we can believe in?

RE: or RA from Egyptian...Re (Ra) was the Egyptian sun god who was also often referred to as Re-Horakhty, meaning Re (is) Horus of the Horizon, referring to the god's character. The early Egyptians believed that he created the world, and the rising sun was, for them, the symbol of creation. The daily cycle, as the sun rose, then set only to rise again the next morning, symbolized renewal and so Re was seen as the paramount force of creation and master of life.

DY or perhaps DIE?

SET: from Egyptian... Set was the god of the desert. Set was viewed as immensely powerful, and was regarded consequently as the chief god. Set carried the epithet, "His Majesty", shared only with Ra.

It has been announced that Barack Obama will orate his Democratic acceptance speech away from the Pepsi Convention Center, instead vying for a more humble audience of 80,000+ at Invesco Field on a stage which is to be constructed to resemble an ancient Greek Temple.

The last such off site speech was given by John F. Kennedy in 1960 at the Los Angeles Coliseum. Again, Obama and the powers that be have invoked the sacrificial elder GODS of American history...Good luck with that.

For YOUR pleasure, of course...

Owners of Alton Towers Amusement Park, second in the world ONLY to Disney

Drawing upon the recent decapitation/"Amusement" Park theme that has surfaced since the release of "The Dark Knight", I came across a rather innocuous story with "all in good fun" Big Brother ramifications.

The recent catastrophic wreck of a bus not far from Alton Towers Amusement Park in Staffordshire, England which carried passengers from the amusement park led to a story posted just 5 days prior to the tragic event by RFIDNews.

UK theme park offers RFID-enabled memories

Wednesday, August 13, 2008 in News

With the help of RFID-enabled wristbands and a system of video cameras, UK amusement park Alton Towers is offering its patrons personalized videos chronicling their adventures at the park.

The video souvenir package, called YourDay, begins with an RFID-enabled wristband issued to park-goers. The wristbands activate a system of 36 cameras scattered about the park, which film the guest and store the footage under the appropriate individual’s account. At the end of the day, the guest can choose to purchase a DVD of their trip, with their personal images blended with stock footage of the park. Unclaimed footage is deleted at the end of each day.

A range of video options, from one ride to the entire trip, are available and priced accordingly. Faster rides are filmed in slow motion, and dramatic music and sound effects are added to the mix.

According to the parks website a description of the "Your Day" benefit feature is:

When you arrive at the park, we’ll give you a wristband containing a radio frequency chip, which will identify your footage on all the big rides and as you walk around the park.

As your ride moves along the track, it passes a sensor which tells a video camera just ahead to capture you on film as you pass by. (On high speed rides, the video cameras use super slow motion to capture your footage at its best.) Your personalised footage is then digitally stored on our system.

At the end of the day, bring your wristband into the YourDay shop on Towers Street and, in less than five minutes, our clever software will put your unique footage on a master DVD of the park, producing a professional and totally personalised film souvenir for you to take home and enjoy forever.

Don’t miss the moment!

We delete any unclaimed footage at the end of your visit so, if you don’t buy your personalised DVD before you leave, the moment will be gone forever.

In a related story from roughly the same time period (Spring 2008), Alton Towers decides to enforce a ban on all PDA's from the park. Was there more to this ban than wanting EVERYONE to enjoy the Alton Towers should care who you're texting while the kids are running mad all over the place? maybe something with PDA's were interfering with their ability to record your every move...?

Little less Ohhhhh, Ohhhh-lympics

Sleeping dragon awakes?

The Chinese, in keeping with their orgasmic display of old and new during the 2008 Olympic Opening ceremony would thus continue the trend during it's closing ceremonies [CERES] when it would wheel out aged former (?) Crowley-ite Jimmy Page (64 years young ladies and Gents) and Leona Louise Lewis (12/12/12 and "Lewis" -son of a Mason) to pass the "douche" from Beijing to London. In all honesty, I had no idea who the stunning 23 year old even was...turns out she won a Brit TV talent show called "X-Factor", and could very likely be taking a job from Celine Dion in Vegas any year now. In resonate "creep" factor, the London portion of the ritual involved an enigmatic double-decker BUS, which for me only brought to mind the London Bombings of 7/7. In yet another twist of fate a double-decker BUS crash near an amusement park (Alton Towers) in Staffordshire, England on Monday, August 18th 2008 left one dead and over 70 injured. The BUS/Amusement connection continues.

Oh these kids today with their sex, drugs, text messaging and rock n' roll??? Well, maybe not...turns out Miss Lewis requested that the ever popular "Every INCH of my love..." line from Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" be watered down for the masses of Chinese; glued to their countries "Coming Out" party. A bit of decapitation/castration in it's own right, no?

Sorry, but if this is the amount of Mojo that is to be mustered as some kind of planetary spell...they'll have to do better than that. I'm sure Matthew Delooze or Christopher Knowles will write something amazing that will strip down the entire production for us, and I hope they do...Part Deux, the closing felt more like I was watching Tim Burton's "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory" at a point. [some interesting connections here as well...more to come]

Two of our's from across the pond Newspaceman & PseudoOccultMedia bring the following:
Oddly, ALL video of the event has been removed by Youtube? In an effort to...what? Maintain the coming money stream for the Page/Lewis CD of gutless Zeppelin covers or is it NBC expecting big returns on DVD sales of the ritual in the weeks and months to come...A shame to not be able include it in this post, as there was one interesting moment where the camera frames Jimmy Page, his guitar, and the giant Olympic flame burning way above him all in one tight compact shot...the Magick lives on.

"Prior to each Games, the Olympic Flame is lit in Olympia, Greece and brought to the host city by runners carrying the torch in relay. There it plays an important role in the opening ceremonies. Though the torch fire has been around since 1928, the relay was introduced in 1936 as part of the then German government's attempt to promote their National Socialist ideology."

An estimated 40 Billion spent...Other than shutting down factories in Beijing for nearly a month so Athletes could actually breathe, not much ECO-friendliness going on...human rights continue to be trampled or completely thrown under the BUS while the world now sees China in a new light, hmmm, maybe it did work? The NWO continues to roll...all the way to London in 2012 (THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON).

BUS-iness as usual

"Jesters do oft prove prophets." (V, iii, l. 73) King Lear

Ever since the horrific events unfolded on a Greyhound BUS in Winnipeg, Canada...we've witnessed a global ripple of beheadings...I have no good explanation or theory as to WHAT or WHY this Copycat Effect [see Loren Coleman] is taking place...random acts? MKultra based assassins?...maybe. I don't claim to know the deeper significance...but I do see the patterns and synchronicities, and I will continue to present these events (no matter how gruesome) because I do feel they act as some sort of code/symbol/signal system.

It is NOT my intent to trivialize these events (I believe they speak for themselves), nor to disrespect those who perish. Thats really ALL I plan on saying on the subject.

What hasn't really been fully connected thus far is the ASIAN/Olympic energy or the number of BUS related events that have followed our Winnipeg event. If you understand that China was chosen to secede the United States as the next ruling order in NWO, the current propaganda/Asian hate dichotomy should come as no real surprise.

Interesting hand placement Phoenix

08/07/08 Miami-
Phoenix resonator and former VIETNAMESE prisoner of war John McCain's campaign BUS is involved in a fender bender.

An official with the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston said many of those on the bus Friday were from the VIETNAMESE Martyrs Church of Houston and were on their way to a religious festival honoring the Virgin Mary in Carthage, Mo. The Marian Days pilgrimage, which started in the late 1970s, attracts thousands of Catholics of Vietnamese descent each year. [An event that is co-sponsored by The KNIGHTS of ColumBUS]

***Maritime Signal ALERT***

08/13/08 Xinjiang, CHINA-
The bus overturned on a remote mountain road leading to Artux city. Many of the passengers were high school students from Han Chinese families as well as the Kirgiz ethnic minority.

08/13/08 Beixiaoying Town, CHINA-
Three Chinese were critically injured and a Croatian coach (Dragutin Milinkovic was struck in the HEAD and had cuts and bruises.) was taken to the hospital following a collision between a bus from the athletes' village and a van on the way to the Olympic rowing park.

There are some interesting bus moments in the new Batman film as well...our Joker connections have been well documented. However, Koncrete Junkyard provides this interesting tidbit:

22=Fool/Joker See Gosporn's "Why so serious?" for more

In a sync wink during the Dark Knight The Joker also makes a getaway in a Bee(hexagon) school bus numbered 22(Fool card/11:11/k2/ Day Ledger died/ Tim McClean's age)-

And least we forget one of the early JOKER decapitations:

ASIA Ferguson (17) was killed at Six Flags over Georgia last week after crossing into a restricted area of the park and being decapitated by the park's hanging "Batman" ride...the Dark Knight strikes again.

The seemingly well coordinated release of "The Dark Knight" and "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" have acted as a MIRROR/LOOKING GLASS [see Goro Adachi's current work on this dramatic development to our current state of existence] and could be at the heart of the doubling effects written about by Jake Kotze and others in relation to HH's, MM's and KK's.

Even the British Telegraph online raises an eyebrow:

"The film is either very timely or very canny in its release date. With the world's eyes on Beijing and the Olympics, the producers have managed to hustle as many elements of Chinese culture and history as possible into the story: feng shui, kung fu, mystical ancient knowledge, the Great Wall, terracotta armies, even noodle soup. I'm only surprised the producers didn't try to rope in Jingjing the panda for a cameo."

Consider the appearance of YETI in the new Mummy film, the "supposed" discovery of BIGFOOT in rural North GEORGIA (Not too far from my homebase here in Athens), and the recent invasion of GEORGIA by the Russians.

Bigfoot rears his head in "The Dark Knight" as well...image borrowed from the kids at the Synchromysticism Forum...lots of ongoing independent research happening there all day long it seems.

Who watches the SENTINEL?

"It was only a matter of time before we found the pyramid and forced it open. Now its signals have ceased, and those whose duty it is will be turning their minds upon Earth. Perhaps they wish to help our infant civilization. But they must be very, very old, and the old are often insanely jealous of the young."

---from "The Sentinel"

Lovecraftian "Old Ones" inspired Sentinels from "The Matrix"

Just in case you've visited New York or live in the city and haven't felt safe since 9/ is on the way. New York plans to install a security system that will track every vehicle that enters the island of Manhattan. Along with radiation detectors, explosive trace detection systems, the overall plan also includes "mobile teams of heavily armed officers".

The system is aptly dubbed Operation "Sentinel" (a more exciting term for guard)...special attention will be paid to the area directly around "Ground Zero" and the site of the former WTC Towers. Could this sound any more like "Escape from New York"? Or maybe it brings to mind the Sentinel from the "Matrix" instead?...but did you know that the original short story by Arthur C. Clarke which would later be expanded upon to become his masterpiece "2001: A Space Odyssey" was entitled "The Sentinel"?...this video based tracking system should be in place by...yeah, you guessed it, 2010.

from wikipedia the synopsis of "The Sentinel":

The story deals with the discovery of an artifact on Earth's Moon left behind eons ago by ancient aliens. The object is made of a polished mineral and tetrahedral in shape, and is surrounded by a spherical forcefield. The first-person narrator speculates at one point that the mysterious aliens who left this structure on the Moon may have used mechanisms belonging "to a technology that lies beyond our horizons, perhaps to the technology of para-physical forces."

For millennia (evidenced by dust buildup around its forcefield) the artifact has transmitted signals into deep space, but it ceases to transmit when the astronauts who discover it breach the forcefield. The narrator hypothesises that this "sentinel" was left on the moon as a "warning beacon" for the possible intelligent and spacefaring life that might develop on Earth.

Get used to it?

The city of West Helena, Arkansas has been under a 24-hour curfew since Thursday of last week (Aug. 7th, 2008).

Much is being made of a virtual declaration of martial law in a small town in Arkansas -- and of the ACLU's predictable, and commendable, objection to the same. Largely unnoticed, though, is the troubling fact that the "state of emergency" may create an opportunity for local criminals.

Invoking an ordinance relating to civil emergencies in response to a surge of violent crime in parts of the town, Mayor James Valley of Helena-West Helena, Arkansas, imposed an all-day curfew, with "[n]o loitering, standing or 'hanging-out'” permitted.

Less well-covered is the fact that the text of the order, available at Mayor Valley's blog, also allows for forcible evictions of people from homes where crimes have been reported.

The Code Enforcement Department has been directed to pursue Nuisance Abatement (Evictions) for those persons residing in homes, in the affected areas, where at least three (3) criminal violations have occurred within the most recent time period allowed to be considered by law.

People aren't just being driven from the streets -- they're also being tossed from their dwellings as local officials suspend fundamental rights in the name of law and order.

Local police are responsible for enforcing the curfew, of course. The Associated Press reported, "Thursday night, 18 to 20 police officers carrying M-16 rifles, shotguns and night-vision scopes patrolled the "curfew zone." They arrested about eight people and confiscated drugs and loaded weapons."

That's disturbing news all by itself. The cops have been given carte blanche to run roughshod over an already troubled neighborhood -- even angels would have difficulty wielding such power without trampling people's rights, and police are people, not angels.

But there's reason to wonder if some of the uniformed enforcers wandering the streets of that unfortunate community are actually opportunists. Just last month, The Daily World, the local newspaper, warned that uniforms had been stolen during a break-in at an officer's home.

“Unless you know who the person is it is a good idea to find out who’s outside before opening your door to just anyone,” said Col. Fred Fielder of the Helena-West Helena Police Department.

A state of emergency that empowers police is quite an opportunity for anybody nervy enough to simply pretend to be a police officer. It's bad enough to open your door to a government official who wants to force you from your home. It's worse to open your door and discover that those officials you have good reason to fear have simply handed a weapon to the freelance thugs.

Shine on Crazy Diamond...

Fellow researcher, and friend Kent Daniel Bentkowski aka "Kentroversy" passed away Wednesday July 30th, 2008.

I was lucky enough to have been asked to appear on Kent's podcast The Kentroversy Tapes on two separate occasions; as well as having appeared on Occult of Personality's round table discussion of writer H.P. Lovecraft along with Kent, and researcher Tracey Twyman.

Kent went out of his way to befriend me VERY early into my public research life. To say that I was honored and extremely nervous is a huge understatement but speaking with Kent was the easiest thing in the world. He made me feel relaxed and welcomed into the vast online world of conspiracy research; and for that I will be forever thankful.

Here is Kent's original introduction of my work...

Kentroversy Tapes podcast # 11, I am joined by Internet researcher Todd Campbell of the blog site THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. As I am interested in giving some exposure and publicity to some of the newer voices in the esoteric research movement, Todd certainly fit the bill. He has some very intriguing writings, and is one to keep an eye upon, in terms of his future work.

After that first podcast, Kent and I stayed on the phone for another hour talking, just getting to know one another, he even decided I needed a snappy banner for my site; and so he threw together the original "Through The Looking Glass" header for me...he was that kind of guy.

Greg from Occult of Personality and Henrik from Red Ice Creations have put together a really great tribute to Kent, I hope that my readers will take a moment to visit...listen to a podcast, read an article for Kentroversy.

Jokers Wild Part III

Second Death of the Joker. Canadian victim Tim McClean

***Loren Coleman has posted an updated and thorough compilation of all the current (and past related) information on the Winnipeg Bus decapitation/Dark Knight curse. Well worth checking out!!!!

According to a facebook tribute page [here] to Canadian bus victim Tim McClean (who incidentally worked for a carnival), his favorite band was The Insane Clown Posse...and he was known as JoKAwiLd (which according to his myspace page was tattooed across his back)...Mix this with the death of Heath Ledger, can this get any weirder at this point?

Tim McClean's JoKAwiLd tattoo

here is the text from the facebook page:
R.I.P Tim McLean, You are loved and you will be missed dearly! that man will pay for what he did! we love you! we miss you! and cant wait to see you again! L.T is in good hands! You will still be known as JokAwild . just letting you know. this group in now launched world wide. Tims favorite band was I.C.P (Insane Clown Posse) Thats the reason his face was always painted. He always made peope laugh, and not just laugh but cry from laughing so hard. People say no ones perfect. But somehow Tim acheived the impossible.

In statements from his friends and family, Tim will always be remembered for his infectious laugh...

In related news, the individual being held for the bizarre; almost ritualistic killing, Vince Weiguang Li was quoted as having stated to police at the scene "I have to stay on the bus forever”. It has also been released that a plastic bag was found in Li's pocket containing a ear, nose and part of a mouth...what is not clear from this statement is to whom do these body parts belong. In a rather eerie similarity, Heath Ledger's Joker in the new film describes the brutal disfiguration of his own mouth several times in the film.

We can already see how this tragic event is going to further impact the ability for everyday people to travel freely, as the victims friends and family are already calling for stricter legislation on bus travel. Greyhound has stated that it will review it's current polices. A recent Canadian advertising campaign has also been suspended as a result of the attack.

I'm curious as to what the reason WAS?

The Dark KNIGHT strikes again!

"When the chips are down, these, uh, civilized people, they'll eat each other."
---Heath Ledger's Joker from "The Dark Knight"

This week, I had been doing a bit of research on the recent Canadian bus killing, the possible links to mind-control and anthrax related "Project Badger" of the best sources for information on just such "real-life" tragedies is noted researcher Loren Coleman, whose blog "The Copycat Effect" is one I highly recommend.

Three high profile decapitations, the serious injury to actor Morgan Freeman (aka Lucius FOX)...

Programming Trigger via the Joker's calling card?

Loren has been keeping his eyes on the recent wave of be-headings. While compiling some information, I came across a rather odd still from the recent "Dark Knight" film...Heath Ledger's "Joker" flashing his calling card, a Joker raising a severed head squewered on a sword (visual trigger perhaps?)...within minutes I was back at Loren's site only to discover this rather amazing NEW post.

***PLEASE NOTE*** There have been some comments made regarding the above image from "The Dark Knight". It has been stated that this is NOT from the film and has been created in photoshop. I originally discovered the image in the July 25th, 2008 Issue of Entertainment Weekly. In doing an internet search for the same image, I ran across these blow-ups of it. It is my understanding that the still was pulled from the original trailer for the film (which is probably more widely viewed, and seen more often than the actual movie) and may not actually be included in the actual final print.

Asia Ferguson (17) was killed at Six Flags over Georgia last week after crossing into a restricted area of the park and being decapitated by the park's hanging "Batman" ride...the Dark Knight strikes again.

The recent release of "The X Files: I Want to Believe" also coincides with these recent events which brought to mind work that Christopher Knowles had done on Ten Thirteen (23) Productions, Salome' & the severed head of St. John.
