Yahooccultism: Crowned with the Sun

You know, I never noticed how much the CMS installation at CERN resembled old Sol. No surprise they're searching for the "God Particle" there. Hopefully the overweening narcissism of the current generation of scientists won't be all of our undoing. 

I must admit that very time I see a CERN headline I can't help but flash back to The Quiet Earth.

Alien Dreaming: Don't Pay the Ferryman

In our last installment, I mentioned how I've watched I Want to Believe about 40 times (give or take) and found some new easter egg each time. Well, shortly after writing that I took another pass at the film, and lo and behold, found more hidden symbolism. And this stuff is quite juicy....

Dog Days: The Hits Just Keep On Coming

NOTE: Scroll down for updates

Well, the Sun is blazing all across the globe. It's summer- the Dog Days- and the symbols are flying like grackles in the grove. It seems like I'm doing a lot of these posts recently, but you gotta fish when they're bitin'. 

 That blue and gold Sol there is from a story in the UK press- the British company is paying off illegal immigrants at Calais to go back home. I guess wages have been driven down enough. 

For the time being, at least.

Yahooccultism: Beyond the Sea

The China UFO story is still a hot topic. We're still hearing the military angle, without any evidence to substantiate it yet. The Yahoo story here is total puff, offering no insights either way.

Yahooccultism: The Old Ones FTW

The big story from the World Cup was the uncanny predictions of, well, an octopus. Now, I'm not saying there's a conspiracy afoot to gradually program us into worship of the hideous Old Ones, some of whom take a similar form to said octopus. I'm just saying...nothing, really. I'm not saying anything.

Weird story though, eh?

Jung at Heart: Individuation vs. the Mass Mind


Jung very rarely spoke on politics and when he did so it was always in the context of the individuation of the Psyche and the threat that the reductive powers of the Mass Mind presented to that process.

Secret Star Trek: Susan Oliver, Sex on Wings

The Outer Limits would inspire - and lend creative personnel -- to two other landmark sci-fi series of the 1960s, series whose numinous power continues to overshadow any of the formulaic bilge that has passed itself off as science fiction in recent years. 

Both series were Gnostic to their cores; Astro-Gnostic, to be precise. Perhaps all good sci-fi must be.

Mermaids and Man-Things

Or should that say "Best of Sumer?"

Well, summer's here and the time is right for Sirius symbolism. Here's my old neighbor Marky Mark hamming it up with Will Farrell, who'll be playing the part of Oannes for us. That 116 sure is a strange number, until you add it up and get- of course- 17.

Sirius Rising: Greco-Egypt and the New Rome

Poster art for the Cleopatra show. 
Kind of says it all, no?

Took a road trip yesterday to Phila(e)delphia to see the Cleopatra show, which was a bit of a letdown after the Tut extravaganza. If Zahi is being a bit miserly with the goodies found at Alexandria and Heraklion, the show more than made up for it in serving up the semiotic booty, particularly pertaining to the Sirius and Phoenix memes.
