Interestingly enough, the World's Fair opened on Walpurgisnicht, exactly seven months after Orson Welles' epochal radio adaptation of War of the Worlds, detailing an invasion of New Jersey by inhabitants of Mars.
Mars certainly seems to be popping back up in our public consciousness lately. Most recently we saw the ESA video of Hebes Chasma, which by some miraculous twist of fate shares its name with Hebes Temple in Egypt. And playing now at the IMAX Dome is Roving Mars, featuring footage from the various Mars expeditions. Note the "wounded Eye of Horus" sunrise/eclipse there.
And sure enough, the other EYE-MAX ("Great Eye") feature playing at the IMAX Dome Theatre is Mummies, Secrets of the Pharoahs, featuring none other than Lord Summerisle as narrarator. And whose poster features what...? The Eye of Horus.
So we have big-budget IMAX movies about Mars and the Egyptian Mysteries playing at the same time in a venue containing an ancient fertility symbol in the shadow of Lady Liberty herself. None of this is even remotely surprising if you've read the work of researchers like Richard Hoagland.
The third feature is Hurricane on the Bayou, a documentary on the destruction wreaked by Katrina, narrarated by Meryl Streep. Coincidentally, Hoagland has also done work parsing the semiotic (and other) mysteries of that disaster. Amazingly, Katrina is yet another variation on Ka-Athyr-Ein and again, Hathor was known as the "destroyer of mankind" in her form as Sekhmet.
Very, very interesting triple-feature, no?
Maybe skeptics will tell us this is all just a multi-million dollar prank on the part of a bunch of high-placed Hoagland fans, hellbent on combining high initiate symbolism, the ancient Egyptian afterlife ceremonies, and Mars, a planet with its hotly-debated-over structures, to unconsciously brainwash people into buying surplus copies of Dark Mission. Ha ha, funny high-placed Hoagland fans! You guys certainly know how to pull a fast one!
Note winged sun disk atop the film's title
And yet, this isn't the first time that Egypt, initiatic occultism and astronautics have been brewed up at the Libery Science Center. I haven't been to the LSC in about ten years or so (outside of the IMAX, it's very boring for anyone over the age of 12). The last time I was there the IMAX feature was the aptly-named travelogue, The Mysteries of Egypt.
Coincidentally enough, the folks from Jack Parsons' old haunt, the Jet Propulsion Laboratories, were also there with an exhibit of NASA concept artist Robert McCall's "symbolic" paintings, including fascinating pieces with titles like Alien Intellect, Light of the Universe, and The Apotheosis of Technology. These "symbolic" pieces are just chock-full of Masonic icons, including checkerboards, obelisks, giant eyes and spaceships, all tied to space travel, ancient civilizations and "alien intelligence."
But this is all too expensive and elaborate to be just a bunch of Freemasons having a chuckle. These IMAX films and these buildings and these exhibits cost millions and millions of dollars and these little scraps of imagery we're being fed by the space agencies are merely the tip of a multi-billion- if not trillion- dollar pyramid. Does anyone really think that NASA and the ESA aren't covertly photographing every square inch of Cydonia?
I believe we will be seeing much more of this, as we are slowly conditioned to this new reality paradigm. We've seen all of this in science fiction film since at least 2001:A Space Odyssey, but as many other more seasoned researchers than myself have pointed out, every advanced civilization in antiquity has records quite plainly and soberly stating that "gods" from the stars came to them, instructed them in the arts of civilization, and left after promising to return someday in the future. I'm not a prophet, but it's as good a bet as any that some very powerful people believe that that "someday" is coming up very, very quickly.
And it won't be pretty.
