Space is an Altar: They Can't Be Sirius...

 Oh sure, that's a normal news story

Well, it's an election year and you know what that means-- a veritable flood of covert Sirius symbolism. It was the 2008 Election that really shaped this blog, starting with the A Very Sirius Election series and continuing on with the ongoing Stairway to Sirius installments.

It was all very strange timing for me; I had started this blog to promote Our Gods Wear Spandex but also to field-test a lot of the ideas I had explored in a manuscript I had written called Ancient Dramas, Modern Myths: The Secret Language of Pop Culture, which explored the ancient Solar symbolism in science fiction blockbusters and linked it all back to the Egyptian priesthood of Heliopolis known as the Shemsu Hor.

Ironically enough I began work on this manuscript following the 2004 Election and finished in mid-June 0f 2006.

 Obama's Beltane message

Richard C. Hoagland will tell you that the conclusion I came to in Ancient Dramas, Modern Myths is correct-- that the Shemsu Hor still very much exists and will exercise its influence behind the scenes with certain films (almost always science fiction action/adventures with strong alien and ancient astronaut themes or allegories). For the record, Graham Hancock told me in 2006 that he also believes that the Shemsu Hor still exist as well.

Dog (Star) Wars 2012

Richard also believes there's a hearts and minds battle being waged --roughly connected to Carol Rosin's claims of Werner Von Braun's belief that certain elements in the military/industrial/entertainment complex want to create fear of an alien invasion-- "fearporn" is Richard's term-- to poison the well and keep people locked in a limited, hopeless worldview.

That certainly explains all of the alien invasion films we've been seeing since Spielberg's War of the Worlds in 2005 (and his dismal Falling Skies last year)


In a 2008 post titled called "Credit Where Credit is Due" (inspired by a cyberfeud in Synchroland), I reminded readers that what I and others were doing-- connecting dots in the mediastream in ways not immediately apparent --was nothing new:
Richard Hoagland has been doing the exact same thing for many, many years. In fact, if there is a single father of "Synchromysticism" as it exists today, that man has to be Hoagland and no other.

From "The Age of Horus Dawns," November 2000
Anyone interested in Synchromysticism or deep semiotics will find a treasure trove in the Enterprise Mission archives, dating back to 1996.

Some may find fault with Hoagland's understanding of exogeology or astronomy, but his understanding of esoteric symbolism is immense. The links between secret societies and the space program (indeed, the links between secret societies and the power structure as a whole) are inarguable and well-documented, and Hoagland's understanding of their history and symbol systems is deep and meticulous.
And in "Credit," I also shared a hunch on where exactly the Obama Administration was ultimately going to be taking the country, what his role in history was:
As the space program is being ramped up to a scale never before seen in history (it's my belief that Obama could very well have been installed to transform America from an arms-based economy to a space-based one), I think everyone should at least familiarize themselves with Hoagland's work, which long predates us all in Synchromysticland.
Given the subsequent escalation of the wars, the surveillance state and the ongoing destruction of the middle class (the continuation of the Bush agenda, in other words) that seemed like a prediction for the round-file, where all of the predictions made by professional psychics, media pundits and corporate scientists belong. But I'd forgotten my long-held maxim about change-- that real change is slow, laborious and often invisible.

 Yeah, that's not symbolic

It also has to be remembered that Obama is not a king and that the country-- and the world-- is filled with competing power factions, who'll often cut off their own noses just to spray the other guy with blood. Given the symbolism we saw-- not only in the Election, but the Sirius Star LARP, the mind-boggling Dubai Anunaki invocation, all of the nonsense about the dog being a "Major Issue" and the Blue Dogs-- it's hard to believe that all of that was just for show.

It wasn't. It was, as Richard calls it, "sympathetic magic." An elaborate ritual to tune the participants' consciousness to the greater currents of these ancient, deeply-embedded archetypes, a practice dating back millennia.

It's as much as part and parcel of the space program (NAZCA NASA and beyond) as rockets and computers. All the little skeptic neckbeards are going to have to get used to the idea, whether they like it or not.

Case in point- SpaceX, founded by PayPal billionaire Elon Musk was supposed to launch its Dragon capsule aboard its Falcon 9 rocket to rendezvous with the ISiS today, but the flight was delayed:
The first launch of a private spaceship to the International Space Station has been delayed more than a week, until May 7, so engineers can test hardware and software, as well as review data. 
Space Exploration Technologies Corp., better known as SpaceX, was slated to launch a craft from Cape Canaveral, Fla., on April 30 in a demonstration flight for NASA. The launch date had already been pushed back several times.

SpaceX makes its Dragon capsule and 18-story Falcon 9 rocket at a facility in Hawthorne that once housed assembly on fuselage sections for Boeing Co.'s 747 jumbo jet. The hardware is put on a big rig and sent to Cape Canaveral for launches.
Did someone say "sympathetic magic?" What's the significance of April 30 in the grand scheme of things? Why, it's Walpurgisnacht, the so-called "Witches Sabbath." And of course Isis was the goddess of magic and patroness of witches.

 As above, so below- note mirrored "trinity" of stars

The Dragon and the Falcon- as well as The Nine- should be well familiar to readers of this blog. Put them all together on the eve of Beltane and well, let's just say Jack Parsons would be proud.

 "Typhon cast the male member of Osiris into the river, and Isis could not find it,
but constructed and shaped a replica of it, and ordained that it should be
honoured and borne in processions"- Plutarch

We looked at the very strange ritual of the Shuttle Discovery circling Washington DC on April 17th in great detail here and this past week the Enterprise flew from DC up to do the same thing in Manhattan. A massive faux pas was avoided when the event was scheduled away from Richard Hoagland's birthday on the 25th and the event took place on the 27th.

 Even the Sun got in on the act,
mimicking the Enterprise mission patch
with an anomalous triangle on its surface in March

I had a marathon symbolfest with Richard on the phone on Sunday, which literally ran the gamut from The Event, the Oval Office rug, the current Venus transit, the Obama/JFK connection, I Am Legend, the Norway Spiral and more syncs and symbols than you can shake a shillelagh at. 

Things are coming in fast and furious and Richard's still the master of this game. There's too much to cover in one post but there are some key points that he did take special note of.

It's Richard's belief that Obama is in office to finish the job JFK started in space. The stakes are higher now and the game is different. We're no longer a young, confident superpower-- we're a deeply divided and hobbled giant.

Richard believes there's a struggle taking place behind the scenes over these issues and I would offer that it remains to be seen if Obama will be the man who can refocus this country's energies on a new mission. It's interesting though that his opponent is a Mormon, who themselves are every bit as focused on outer space and sci-fi as Obama himself.

The Obama photo-op- which just might be the most incongruous Presidential photo op in my memory wasn't published until the 26th but was taken on the 24th in Boulder, Colorado. Richard pointed out the significance of Obama staring into space in Boulder on the same day a cabal of billionaires announced their science fiction-worthy asteroid mining venture ("space, boulder"- get it?), an event I'm still trying to wrap my head around.
Four billionaires are backing a newly unveiled asteroid-mining venture, adding to an impressive list of ultra-rich people trying to reshape spaceflight and exploration in the 21st century.
Planetary Resources, Inc. — which on Tuesday (April 24) officially revealed its plans to extract water and metals from near-Earth asteroids — counts Larry Page, Eric Schmidt, Ross Perot Jr. and Charles Simonyi among its investors. 
Filmmaker James Cameron, worth $700 million or so, is advising the project, which seeks to both turn a profit and spur the further exploration and exploitation of space.
Is there all that much money to be made in space or is the System calling in its chits Arthur Jensen-style and demanding these fatcats start putting their dosh back into the kitty? Because the next Internet billionaire on deck with a space program is Jeff Bezos:
Blue Origin wants to fly under the radar all the way into space.
The secretive private spaceflight firm, which was established in 2000 by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, is developing systems to launch astronauts to both suborbital and orbital space.
Blue Origin. Blue.

 Look at that "blazing star" in their very cryptic logo. Did I mention that Sirius is the Blue Star? Or that some believe mankind can trace its origin to Sirius?

I shouldn't even bother mentioning that turtles were symbols of the powerful creator god Enki to the ancient Sumerians, should I?

You know, the Anunnaki and all that business.

 Enterprise flies by One World Trade

Ever hear the old saying "millionaires don't believe in astrology; billionaires do?" Well, maybe skeptical neckbeards, mouldering away in their little cubicles, don't believe in ancient astronauts, but I'm thinking it's a good chance the CEOs of their companies do.

Oh, like, say Paul Allen and Richard Branson* two more players in the new space race:
British entrepreneur Richard Branson, who is worth about $4.2 billion, got into the game in 2004, when he founded the suborbital spaceflight firm Virgin Galactic. Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo vehicle will launch to space after being carried about 50,000 feet (15,000 meters) above Earth's surface by a mothership known as WhiteKnightTwo. 
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen announced another air-launched space effort this past December. Allen, who is worth $14.2 billion, founded Stratolaunch Systems with renowned aerospace engineer Burt Rutan.
This is the cream of the corporate crop here-- these are not men who fool around or throw their money away. I stopped paying attention to this for a while because it seemed like a indulgence-- space plane rides for the rich in low orbit-- but there are too many players on the field now (Sierra Nevada and their Dream Chaser is yet another player).

And this asteroid mining venture? Well, let's just say shit got real. These guys are after something and they're not telling us what it really is. We're going to have to figure it out as best we can on our own.

For the time being, at least.

PS: Obama ended the week with one dog joke after another at the White House correspondents dinner. During a 17-minute speech. Any other week, I would have thought he was just kidding around. This week, he's being dead Sirius.

UPDATE: Well, well, well-- look what else appeared last week. Nicki Minaj playing the Alien Aphrodite in a bizarre reenactment of Jack London's ur-AAT narrative "The Red One," which the pop princess namechecks at the beginning of the song. I guess we know what the new pop theme is this year...

UPDATE: Richard also pointed out the shot with Bo reclining under the painting "Liberty 1869", featuring the goddess Libertas, whose sword and spear and crown of stars links her to Hathor and Ishtar, goddesses later identified with Venus but who retained their identities as goddesses of love and war (see Scully, Dana). Is there a meaning here? A Sirius-Venus conjunction of some kind? Stay tuned.

UPDATE: On Old Beltane: Supermoon 2012 comes on May 5. The 'supermoon' is when a full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth. The supermoon will be 16 percent brighter than a normal full moon.

The biggest and brightest full moon of the year will occur this weekend. An estimated 16% brighter than normal, this spectacular ‘Supermoon’ will be visible in the night sky on Saturday (May 5) at 11:35 p.m. EDT, according to Space.com and the Daily Mail Online.
This weekend’s full Moon will appear as such because it will actually be closer to the Earth. Astronomers refer to this event as a perigee moon.
The apogee and perigee of the Moon denotes the distance of the Moon from the Earth.  The apogee is the point when the Moon is furthest from the earth. The perigee is the point when it is closest. When a perigee moon is also full, the visible difference in brightness and size can be dramatic.
