Weekend Matinee: Isis Unveiled

As a Neo-Jungian auto-didact nutcase, I'm obsessed with the concept of resonance. We're subjected to thousands of ideas and concepts every day, most of which are instantaneously flushed from our consciousness.

CERN Watch: India, Rising

The Indian Government presented the
CERN with this state of Lord Shiva

India may well turn out to be the major technological superpower of the coming century. Their schools are turning out engineers at a rate that dwarfs US and Europe combined. They've launched their own space program and recently landed a probe on the Moon.

Stairway to Sirius: Davos Gets Sirius

Some puns never get old: This little news item came and went on the BBC front page within the space of a couple of hours early this morning:
The party is over. Well, at least it has been toned down. Once criticised as a glitzy event and schmoozefest for the very rich and powerful, the World Economic Forum is getting all serious.
Are they ever. The Beeb headline link had said "Davos Gets Serious." This image also came and went on the front page of the Davos website, just around the same time.

Double-click on the image to get a better look at the binary, large/small star motif imposed on the Davos banner.

Barack Obama and the Green Sun

From the front page, on Obama's first week in office. Thanks to an anonymous reader for the heads-up. For deep background on the Green Sun, click here.

Another interesting shot, from the reliably-cryptic Huffington Post.

Seen From Space: Planet 51

Thanksgiving? Pretty long lead time, especially given all of the scenes in the trailer. A couple of the shots here remind me of the Dubai development video we saw a couple months back, with all of the satellite shots and sacred geometry.

AstroGnostic: Witch Mountain and King Scorpion

Those dogs look like a major issue

Escape to Witch Mountain is one of the touchstones from my childhood. Though hopelessly dated and unbearably cheesy today, it introduced a generation of miserable latchkey kids in the 70s to a whole host of esoteric concepts- telekinesis, UFOology, Sirius symbolism (the alien kids in the film hail from a binary star system) and the very Gnostic idea that we are higher beings trapped in a fallen world.*

The Deep Semiotics of Flight 1549: Addendum

I mentioned the correlation between the splashdown location of Flight 1549 and the parallel spot where Ben "Star" Gates jumps from the observation deck of the USS Intrepid into the Hudson in the Masonic recuitment film, National Treasure

Before we put the story to rest, I thought some visual aids might help drive the point home.
