Introducing the Solar Seminar


Things are moving so quickly that I'm finding it difficult to fit it all on The Secret Sun. I started the Solar Satellite and gave it time to define itself, which it has done as a headline news site. But I also wanted another outlet for more in-depth articles and posts. A while back I had an email exchange with Tracy Twyman, continuing our previous discussion on the nature of the beings that our ancestors saw as gods or angels. I wanted to pick her brains on Gnostic creation myths, and Tracy really went to town laying out her supernaturalist perspective on the nature of these stories and these beings.



But Tracy gave me so much I didn't want to stick it on a daily post and let it disappear beneath the fold. So after some deliberation I created The Solar Seminar, a blog for more in-depth analysis of the issues we've been looking at here. So the Secret Sun will continue with symbolic and semiotic discussions, The Solar Satellite will keep an eye on the news and The Solar Seminar will carry heavier works and will be updated less often.

Please check out "Tracy Twyman Speaks on Creation Myths, Gnostic and Otherwise." It's a lot to digest, so the article will be up top for at least a couple of weeks. Feel free to add your own thoughts to the discussion as well.

  1. Interesting woman...

    Got to love red heads....

    Why Is it that men always say that phrase,"Got to love those red heads!"

    Who knows....

    The Solar Seminar rocks.....

    I think you should come out with a clothing line and call it Solar Flare.....

    Bad joke....

    but hey dude you quoted Scott Weiland today. And well, that dude even came out with his own clothing line. I don't see why you could'nt.....

    I took a hiatus from your blog because I seriously thought it bordered on creating a religion...then I realized that was horse nancies..lol.

    Keep Going....and have fun. Fun is all we have left.

  4. Michael- Scott Weiland talked about how he worked on a solo album rather than an STP album because record companies have reduced their acts to contractual slavery. Which puts the Jonas Bros et al in a new light.

    Anony- Yeah synchronicity is snowballing lately. The more you tune into it the more it tunes into you.

    Akarta- Awesome- thanks much for the links.

  6. I have a strange connection to Weiland ~ My father treated him for Opiate addiction in South Florida ~ I got to chat with him a bit after a session one time. He was going by the name "Steve" ~ and in quite rough shape.. just after the first Velvet Revolver album was released. Talk about Synchonicity.. He ended up going to some ritual ceremony in the Bahamas.. That was suppose to "clear" him of his demons ~ Whatever that meant. Freaking Rock Stars.

  7. Oh I know, that music business is rough. As you said with screenplays, the amount of rewriting that goes on between the 1st script analyst that reads it to the final shooting script basically changes almost all of the movie/script. In music, the rockstar is kind of like that script, and Weiland is old enough where he does'nt need all that crap. Thats why I go to festivals like this:

    http://www.rothburyfestival.com/

    Because then I can see Dylan! And of course your cousin.....

    DAVY KNOWLES AND BACK DOOR SLAM

    It'd be cool to go to a festival like this with like you and Henrik....cause the people that camped next to us in the lot would be like..."Seriously those two guys over there....dudes name is Chris and then some foreign dude.....they just totally like told me how I think something named Horus and Osiris who is like this green man....can be seen in the whole makeup of this green festival bro...and it was fricking awesome dude...."

    But yeah street music is really more entertaining than stadium rock. Community is and will always be important.

  8. Steve- Whoa- that's a heavy story. It sounds like some voudoun/Santeria thing, eh? You're right- freakin' rock stars. I'm a big STP fan and was actually pretty crushed when he did VR. The DeLeo brothers are amazing musicians- very sophisticated composers and arrangers as well. But I never liked the stuff any of those guys did apart.


    Michael- Enjoy yourself at the festival

  9. The strange bluring of fiction and reality gets even weirder with today news from Prince William and a scar á la Harry Potter:

    "The future King also disclosed that on a foray on to a golf course with a friend he received a "Harry Potter" scar. "I call it that because it glows sometimes and some people notice it – other times they don't notice it at all. We were on a putting green and the next thing you know there was a seven-iron and it came out of nowhere and it hit me in the head."

  10. and, The Telegraph (I love that retro name for a newspaper, a conservative daily indeed), a serious daily, presents a pic taken today showing several UFOs hovering over London, specially the Big Ben and Parlement. The man that took the pic was on the roof of a building known as Orion House...

  11. In the Bahamas is the steepest peak in the world regardless of the sea level, where three tectonic plates meet. The location is known as the Devil's Tongue. Sailors told stories of an orgiastic death and breeding ritual electric eels preformed in this place during thunderstorms. This location is within the Bermuda Triangle. There is a corollary position within the Pacific known as Yona Guni.

    I chose this site as a node on a line between Time Square NYC for my Architecture Thesis.

  12. Hi Chris,

    i just read "The eternals" as you recommended on aeolus kephas podcast. Isn't that an old reharsh of patriarchal themes? I mean, the sky gods coming here and setting-up a city called Olimpia in which the only one god who can contact the celestials is Zuras, or as you point in the twyman interviwe, our old friend Zeus/Jeohvah ?? The nature again appears demonized, with that deviant morphed into a tree and showing thooted vaginas ... and then gaiman into scientology ... this fits te pattern, to me ...

  13. Oh, that's all intentional, sir. That's from the original series with Kirby. It's reimagining the myths...

  16. What's your opinion of this guy named Nicholas de Vere? Tracy Twyman wrote the intro to his book. He sure does have an interesting take on "alternative history."
