Stairway to Sirius: Death and Restoration II

Anyone with a passing familiarity to esoteric symbolism is still reeling from the Atlantis Rising ceremony that was put on last week. The headline had it that the ritual could be "seen from space," and indeed it would have been incomprehensible to anyone less than two thousand feet or so in the air.

The elemental symbolism is telling. Atlantis "rises" after a massive display of fireworks, almost as if someone was looking to rewind a videotape of the volcanic eruptions that sent the continent under the waves. Indeed, the entire ritual took place on the northwest-oriented Palm Jumeirah, and the palm itself is in the genus Phoenix, the ultimate symbol of resurrection from the ashes. And I hope I don't need to remind regular readers which group is known for the reversal of time rituals...

Indeed, everything we are seeing now symbolizes a reversal, a restoration, a rising. Just as we saw in Chicago while Bruce Springsteen's 9/11 anthem, "The Rising," serenaded the massive crowd out to cheer Obama. And, of course, the last time Bruce Springsteen serenaded a crowd of Obama supporters with that song the event was indeed seen from space.

CRUCIAL UPDATE: As one sharp-eyed Manhattanite commented, the company in charge of the WTC hub rebuilding is called Phoenix Constructors. Check out their video here, starting with the requisite view from space.


We looked at the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center which changes the orientation of the buildings from west to northwest. But looking at the palms (again, Phoenixes) again I began to wonder if the Winter Garden is not oriented to northwest, but to southeast.

Because if you draw a straight line southeast from the Winter Garden you come right to the front door of one of Masonic Manhattan's most curious landmarks....

...the Millennium Hilton Hotel, which was modeled after the Monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Oh, you don't believe me? Too neat a coincidence? Too much of a smoking gun linking all of this global drama to the Stairway to Sirius to aliens and the Ancient Astronaut Theorizing I'm constantly droning on about here? It can't be what it looks like, right?

Actually, it can. This is straight from the Hilton Family website:
The hotel is a high-rise black glass building which pays homage to Arthur C. Clarke's vision of the Monolith in "2001: A Space Odyssey" - complete with canopy, flags and ornamental trees at the entrance.
What is of the utmost importance to remember in light of the very same "rising" imagery we are looking at (rising sun in corporate logos, "Atlantis Rising," Obama's use of Springsteen's "The Rising") is the fact that Kubrick repeatedly identified the Monolith- a symbol of man's first contact with alien technology- with the rising sun in 2001: A Space Odyssey. (see examples here).

Now, with that in mind, look at that alignment. It takes your breath away. Just as 9/11 cleared the skyline for the Stairway to Sirius, it also revealed that the palm-lined Winter Garden is aligned to the Monolith, almost as if it's a portal. But a portal to what?

On an earlier post, a reader commented how Ground Zero and the construction on the oft-delayed Freedom Tower reminded them of the excavation of the pit at Tycho from 2001. Here we are facing west, facing the Stairway to Sirius. The Monolith to the extreme left of the photo.

And here we see an establishing shot from 2001, as the astronauts (led by government hush-up artist Heywood Floyd) face the Monolith.* Remember, what this is film is really about is a cover-up of contact with extraterrestrial technology. One of the things that that extraterrestrial technology does is create Stargates, which help breach the vast distances between solar systems.

And a lot of people believe that the 17-mile long super-collider of the CERN project is meant to do that very same thing. Sometimes I wonder if what this is is actually a kind of interdimensional welcome center. Note the octagonal shape..

...which we also saw onstage at the Atlantis in Dubai, which brings us back to the whole idea of communicating with beings in space.

Now, do I believe that 9/11 was carried out simply to reveal the Stairway to Sirius and to align the Winter Garden to the Millennium Hotel? Seems like an awful lot of trouble to go through when you could simply build it all somewhere else (Dubai, for example).

What's more, the WFC/Stairway and the Millennium/Monolith were built at different times by different companies for different owners. And it will be all obscured once again when the Freedom Tower finally goes up, anyway. Or should I say, if the Freedom Tower goes up.

The WTC attacks were definitely symbolic, but I still believe that whoever was responsible, their goal was ultimately political and economic. All of this was an unintended effect, on their part at least. Which is not to say there isn't some conscious agenda at work in all of this.

However, at this stage of the game, that consciousness - and its ultimate agenda - is unknowable.

* Note that in this shot the Tycho pit is oriented to pictorial northwest.
