A Very Sirius Election: Stairway to Sirius

In the first installment of this series, we looked at the incorporation of elements of the hieroglyph for Sirius in the McCain/Obama campaign logos. Next we looked at what certainly appears to be a move to symbolically tie Sarah Palin to Isis and Sirius, starting with her speech at the RNC. 

What we must remember is that the very term "president" comes from ancient ritual, as does his "inauguration."

The term "capitol" (as in "our nation's capitol") comes from a hill in Rome that housed the city's most magnificent temple to Jupiter

And the Masonic roots of the Federal Government and Washington, DC and all of the rest of it are more or less common knowledge these days, thanks to The Da Vinci Code and the National Treasure movies and all the rest of it. So none of this symbolism should surprise us at all, particularly at this stage in the game. 

 So, let's review:

So we see the pyramidion and five pointed star in the McCain/Palin logo and the sunrise used in the Obama logo. 

The Masonic point-in-circle is incorporated into the Obama logo, as well as three red stripes. Do they have a meaning in the context of the Sirius symbolism we've been looking at here? A little context first... 


 9/11 is the definitive event of the 21st Century- it informs our politics and culture in ways not immediately obvious. 

Be that as it may, both John "Oannes" McCain and Barack "Blessed" Obama were at Ground Zero for the seventh anniversary of that horrible day. Here they tossed roses- an ancient fertility symbol- into a reflecting pool, a symbol of the womb. 

Remember also that September 11 is New Year's Day in the Coptic (that is to say, native Egyptian) calendar, and that technically 2001 was the first year of the new millennium.

The symbolism here has an ancient precedent. Following a traumatic period in Egypt's history, the Pharaoh Djoser was quoted as saying:
"I will cause the Nile (River) to rise up for you. There will be no more years when the inundation fails to cover any area of land. The flowers will sprout up, their stems bending with the weight of the pollen."
The symbolism of Djoser's words and this Ground Zero ritual are particularly significant in this instance, seeing that the Obama family hails from Kenya, which is bordered by Lake Victoria -- the source of the Nile River. Remember that the Nile was seen as an earthly reflection of the Milky Way. 

Was this ritual meant as a precursor to some cosmic event? 

But there is something about where this ritual was performed that also ties back to Djoser.

Here is Ground Zero today. Immediately west is the World Financial Center, which now overshadows the WTC site where McCain and Obama performed their obligatory fertility ritual. Note here that these buildings lie directly on the banks of a river. 

The World Financial Center is composed of four separate buildings, distinguished by the designs on their roofs. We have a pyramid, a step pyramid, a dome and an "unfinished pyramid."

If seen from the east, the building containing the step pyramid is hidden. If we mirror the glyph for Sirius-Sothis we see that the three taller buildings of the WFC correspond to it- the building with the pyramid corresponds to the pyramidion, next to that we see the domed roof, and the unfinished pyramid has 5 sides, corresponding to the 5-rayed star of Sirius.

So we have correspondence with three of the WFC buildings and the Sirius/Sothis glyph. So what of the step pyramid roof, then? And what do pyramids actually symbolize, anyway?


Here's where we refer back to Djoser, since his famous pyramid is built in that step/stairway design. Djoser's pyramid is important since it is believed to be the first of Egypt's great pyramids, and unlike the main structures at Giza is well-adorned with sacred writing. More importantly, even orthodox Egyptologists now agree that pyramids were built as "Stairways to Heaven":
The pyramids of Egypt could be explained as symbolic stairways to the stars, according to a British scientist. And - in a twist that will delight New Age believers in mysterious energies and alien spacecraft - the inspiration for the pyramids might indeed have arrived from outer space, in the form of a meteorite.

Toby Wilkinson, an Egyptologist based at Cambridge University, told a conference over the weekend that some of his theory was "deliberately controversial, provocative, but tantalising".

He argued, from evidence of the orientation of the pyramids - always to the northern pole star - and from the names given to estates to finance funerary cults, and the shape of the pyramids themselves, that they could be seen as launch pads for the pharaoh's journey to the afterlife among the stars.

So after the Twin Towers (widely believed to have been symbolic stand-ins for Jachin and Boaz) came down, what was left standing was the World Financial Center, which no one ever noticed when the WTC still stood. 

And encoded into the WFC is a Stairway to Sirius, the star system significant to Egyptian religion and the occult traditions and Masonic traditions and Ancient Astronaut Theory. 

So, as the later Solomonic tradition vanishes from the skyline, it reveals the Stairway to Sirius, almost as if we traveling back in time using architectural symbolism. Which, of course, was the exact modus operandi of the Shemsu Hor. But where else do we find this Stairway to Sirius?

Gee, you think there's an AAT basis
to Freemasonry or what?

We find it here, in a Masonic tracing board. We see the Sun and the Moon, and the "Blazing Star" of Sirius, to which a stairway is attached. And just as the World Financial Center, we see three columns adjacent to the stairway. And none other than Albert Pike tells us of Sirius' importance to Freemasonry:
Sirius still glitters in our Lodges as the Blazing Star, The Sun is still symbolized by the point within a Circle; and, with the Moon and Mercury or Anubis, in the three Great Lights of the Lodge. - Albert Pike, Morals & Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
But if the icon of the Stairway is so important in this story, where do we see in it this meta-narrative encoded in the campaign logos of this year's Clown Show? 

Let's take another look at those enigmatic stripes in the Obama logo...

If you look at the red stripes as being the treads, it very much looks like a stairway. And it leads to a rising sun. But which sun is this? The more I look at all of this symbolism, the more I believe the sun being venerated is not our egalitarian Sol. 

Perhaps the point-in-circle motif offers us a clue. Perhaps that actually symbolizes two suns, with one hidden within or behind the other. 

Which solar system would that describe?

It describes Sirius.

The system of Sirius contains two known stars, the first binary star system discovered. The larger and brighter of the two, Sirius A, is three times the mass of our sun, and over ten times as bright. Shining with a brilliant blue-white radiance, Sirius A easily overshadows her darker companion star. Sirius B is a "white dwarf" star, invisible to the naked eye and packing the equivalent mass of our sun into an incredibly dense globe only 4 times the diameter of our Earth.- Sirius Rising
The symbolic correspondence between Sirius, the WFC and Obama/McCain campaign logos certainly raises the question: were McCain and Obama paying tribute to Ground Zero or the Stairway to Sirius? And were they doing so consciously? 


John McCain doesn't have Obama's familial link to Sirius and the Nile, but perhaps his symbolic link comes by way of adoption. Here's a passage from the Pyramid Texts, ripe to bursting with some truly remarkable imagery of space-travelling gods:
“The sky is clear, Sothis (Sirius) lives, I am a living one, the son of Sothis (Sirius), and the two Enneads have cleansed themselves for me in Ursa Major, the Imperishable. My house in the sky will not perish, my throne on earth will not be destroyed, for men hide, the gods fly away. Sothis has caused me to fly up to the sky in the company of my Brethren…” Utterance 302 of the Pyramid Texts
Ursa Major? Where does that come in? 

Well, it comes into McCain's symbolic portfolio by way of the flag of Alaska, the state of which his running mate Saraswati Palin is governor.

And Palin further linked herself to Sirius with her dog joke at the convention, but it doesn't end there.
As Saraswati Palin (freshly impregnated with semiotic signifiers by the media) addressed the convention audience, which sun was she symbolically giving birth to? Was it the Sun of the covertly re-paganizing Evangelicals? 

Or was it another sun, perhaps one summoned by the blatant point-in-circle imagery we see represented by the ferris wheel on the right? 

Now, don't get me wrong, I doubt that McCain or Obama or Palin are even remotely conscious of any of this. And I understand that all of this sounds like madness if you are unfamiliar with the long history of this symbology. But it appears that someone has been going through an awful lot of trouble to tie this election to the ancient mythological symbolism of Sirius (think McCain with his enigmatic green backgrounds, as well). 

But the question remains- Why? 

Why go to all of this trouble, over a period of thousands of years, to try to get the attention of these unseen space gods? From Heliopolis to Hollywood and every stop in between, there is an elaborate, secret language at work that is consistent, coherent and predictive. 


 What is so compelling about all of this symbolism which always seems to point somewhere out in the cosmos, even in the ostensibly exoteric religions? What is the ultimate goal to this symbolic conversation, to which you and I seem to be passive observers? This is not just a bunch of crusty old coots in aprons having a laugh, believe you me. 

 Stay tuned...
