Sit on It and Rotate

A lot of bloggers are looking askance at a new think tank for young people called the Zenith Global Citizenship Conference, which has been created to promote "(t)he concept of a ‘cosmopolitan citizenship’ (often interchangeable with global citizenship) suggests an allegiance to a new form of global civil society and a new global consciousness that conceptualizes a ‘cosmopolitan order transcending state boundaries and focusing on the rights of individuals.’" Now, no one seemed to pick up on it, but once I looked at their site I started to wonder what this might really be about.

I couldn't help but wonder if this group is merely a new model DeMolay for Rotary International; Rotary being yet another Masonic offshoot- and the primary sponsor of Zenith. I guess the Rotarians (which kind of sounds like an alien race on Star Trek) are taking the "International" bit a little more seriously these days. Nice little synch-up with the recent Pythias-Heroes symbolic overlap, if nothing else. The process of revelation continues to unfold in fascinating and unexpected ways.

Semiotically speaking, that blazing sun at the "zenith" certainly offers ample fodder for speculation, no? Good thing there's not some covert agenda to condition us for some new Solar religion or anything. Right?

Or maybe that's just supposed to be a UFO.
