The Matrix: Agents/Angels/Archons/Aliens

These days it’s easy to forget what an astonishing feat of craftsmanship the first Matrix film is, given how it over-exposed and over-discussed it was. 

The technical, thematic and visual force The Matrix packed has yet to be equaled, especially by its own utterly forgettable sequels. The film is so complete, that any sequel seems redundant (just like the first Star Wars).

The Pink Star of the Sea

As I said on William Henry's show in December (and here as well) we need to be on the lookout for water symbolism this year, as well as mermaid/mermen and other symbols associated with Sirius in esoteric lore. The recent Serious Mysteries posts explored these memes in depth, particularly as they relate to James Cameron, who is obviously very deeply obsessed with both aliens and the oceans (and Gus Grissom, strangely enough).

And She's Buying the Stairway to Sirius

Note the Pleiades (aka the Subaru) surrounding the Moon

The second hour of my Stairway to Sirius talk with Thomas Malone is up here on BlogTalk Radio now. In it, we puzzle over the paradoxes of Symbology and what it can and cannot tell us. If you missed it, the first hour is here.

Back sometime in halcyon days of the 1990s (you know, back when everyone had "jobs" and "money") comics superstar Grant Morrison was staring down the dreaded cancellation barrel on his opus The Invisibles, the comic he claimed Tibetan aliens were channeling through him (more or less).

Stairway to Sirius: Bonus Picture Parade

Before the Super Bowl last night I had a conversation with Thomas Malone of the Grok the Talk podcast. The topic is the Stairway to Sirius, but we covered a whole host of topics before we even got to it such as the Secret Sun itself, King Tut, Synchronicity, 17, symbolism, the Roman roots of American ritual politics, secret societies, shadow projection and scapegoating and on and on and on. 

This is just part one- we're going to reconvene on Thursday.

The Star Wars Symbol Cycle: A Long Time Ago

Isis became a slave during her search for Osiris

Return of the Jedi is generally seen as the least of the three original films. A lot of this has to do with the Ewoks, the feral teddy bears that are featured heavily throughout the film.

Star Wars Symbol Cycle: Empire, or the Hanged Man

Note prominent Solar Cross looming over the action

On the surface of it,
The Empire Strikes Back is a old-time pulp adventure story and as such is the favorite of many Star Wars fans. The interesting thing about the film is how the story itself-- a middle piece with no dramatic resolution or climax-- is overshadowed by a stirring spiritual homily delivered by a badly-animated puppet (of all things).
