Beauty and the Beast (of Revelation), Part 3: Hymn of the Pearls


It's like they all say: once you notice something you start to see it everywhere. It's just the way our brains work. But you also start to see something everywhere when it's being implanted everywhere. That's the part of the equation the pop psychologists never seem to warn you about.


This September 23rd alignment seemed to come and go in most people's eyes but maybe most people's eyes were looking in the wrong direction.  And maybe it's just the prologue to a story that's beginning to play out all around us. And maybe the epilogue has been forecast long in advance, longer than you could ever know.






Maybe the hurricanes, wildfires and mass shootings seem like more of the same old-same old to you, but have you noticed all the superlatives being attached to these events, specifically "the worst?" Just sayin'.

I don't mean to be alarmist here but something to seems to be revving up, whether it's real or manufactured, substantive or symbolic. 


Because the next, um, trump seems to have been played. And that's the Administration's plan to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Call me crazy but this feels to me like the groundwork being laid for the Third Temple. In fact, I believe the new US Embassy will BE the Third Temple.

Crazy, I know. But there are crazy people out there, a lot of them are very powerful, and a lot of them see themselves as workers of destiny. There are also a lot of people who would like nothing better than to LARP the Apocalypse and fulfill prophecies like this...

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4King James Version (KJV) 
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.


I'm certain we can rule out Trump himself in that role, but I'm not sure we can rule out Trump being used to set the table for a would-be Son of Perdition. 

Long-term investment strategy, know what I mean?

Even so, the fires have already started and the riots have already begun. Where it's all going is anyone's guess but my money is on "nowhere good."



Now it occurred to me that this date was rather important, given that it falls 27 years after the Las Vegas massacre under the Heart of the Lion at Luxor Las Vegas.  It got me looking at the constellations and looking at how important they seem to be to certain people. 

I have a very strong feeling this 2044 event here is extremely important to some people, and I believe it points to an arrival of some kind. We can throw around different theories as to an arrival of what exactly, but that's the way I see it.



There are some fairly cosmic events already lined for that year, including a couple messages sent out into space reaching their destinations.

I keep thinking the message is, "Help."

Now the occultation of Regulus by Venus is kind of a spin on the September 23rd alignment, in that both feature an incarnation of Ishtar and her pet Lion. Only in the 2044 case the Lion-- the Prince-- is being subdued by the goddess. 

Or by someone else. Just throwing that out there.



Then you have stories like this-- someone needs to fire their photo editor-- of the discovery of a number of Sekhmet statues in Luxor, Egypt. 

Not Luxor, The Vegas.

Sekhmet is an apocalyptic figure (her titles include "Mistress of Dread", "Lady of Slaughter" and "She Who Mauls") and is very much a transgenic chimera of the Beauty and the Beast.


We also saw this story, where BeyoncIsis has been cast to play Nala in the live-action Lion King. More recombinant Virgo-Leo-Venus at work here.


You can all dismiss this if you like but I don't think it's an accident that the biggest grossing film of this year is Beauty and the Beast, which one can argue is some kind of stellar allegory connected to all this business. All the more so given the fable's intelligence and secret society connections.


And even more than that given the film's apparent stellar symbolism. I'm still trying to work out the details on this-- I'm wondering now if it's a journey following the Galactic Plane and the Ecliptic-- but the correspondences seem pretty clear.

THE HYMN 



Another correspondence at work with the film-- and one we need to look at seriously now-- is the fact that Beauty and the Beast writer Stephen Chbosky and the film's star Emma Watson both worked previously together on The Perks of Being a Wallflower, based on Chbosky's novel. Why is this important?

Well, because of that little clip up there. 

"Pearly Dew-Drops' Drop" is of course a Cocteau Twins song and Jean Cocteau is the man who made what cineastes regard as the definitive Beauty and the Beast. The Disney films are both profoundly influenced by his vision of the tale.

So before we get started, let me just spell this all out again: my obsession with this band and their Sibyl really comes out of a revelation I had cutting through a field on a fine spring day in 1986. I was mulling over a mixtape a friend had made me of their music and it hit me like a freight train-- this isn't just music, this is a harbinger of the Apocalypse. 

Sounds nutty, right?


Well, it just so happens that that, um, revelation may well be correct. It just took me 31 years to figure out why.


PEARLS OF WISDOM


One thing I happened to notice during Goldfishgate was the fact that Melania Trump and her Japanese counterpart made a very big show of visiting a pearl shop in Tokyo. It seemed a bit strange how much coverage a shopping trip happened to get. That raised a big red flag for me and got me looking at the astronomical correspondences the Trumps seemed to be checking off in Japan.


The Trumps also dropped in on the gang at Pearl Harbor on their way. Wave hello!



And if you thought 31 years is a long time, look at the 76 years it took to identify another hundred victims of the Pearl Harbor attacks. 

Yeah, this is all starting to feel really ritualistic.


A week or so later we saw this story, of an installation in Manhattan's Madison Square of a number of very Pearly glowing orbs. 

For those of you who've never been to New York, Madison Square in on 23rd Street.




Just go to the Grand Lodge of New York and hang a left. You can't miss it.


We recently looked at Lady Gaga's Super Bowl 51 show and how similar it was in places to the Millennium Dome Show in London. Of course it should be, since they were both created by the same network of producers, who also brought us the London and Beijing Olympic rituals. 

But one thing I didn't mention was Gaga's jumpsuit, which was adorned with a string of pearl motif. As well it should.

Because the song Gaga named herself after hit peak position in the US...


... the very same day "Pearly Dew-Drops' Drop" was released.

Do note that that single's cover pictures a woman gazing into a crystal ball. 

Of course, the bejeweled Gaga falls to the stage on a cable, reminding some of us of this little passage from Ezekiel...




Of course, that's a message to the King of Tyre that many have interpreted as a reference to Lucifer, or the Morning Star. Or Venus.


But you could also interpret Gaga's little pearl-drop routine-- leading into "Poker Face"-- as a tribute to Sophia, or Wisdom...


Which brings us back to Garlands again, of course. And to 49.


I don't know about you but it looks like this Sophia could use a Garland to grace her head, since you see all those robot guts in there. Could they not afford a decent wig?

THE GATES

When we were sorting through the absolute overkill attached to Our Lady, Queen of Sibyls, vis a vis the Siren saga, a lot of people were asking me what was the point of it all? It seemed like an awful lot of time and space-fucking to expend on the deaths of a bunch of rock stars.

Well, I'll tell you now what I believe was the point of it: it was to establish the Sybil's prophetic cred so we'll pay more attention to prophecies like this.


Note the tombstone design and Calla lily

"Pearly Dew-Drops' Drop" was also released on The Spangle Maker EP, a song that continues to give me the chills all these years later. All the more so given some of the new information I have about El-Sibyl-Beth's past and the epidemic of abuse at certain institutions in Scotland. 

As well as the information we do have concerning the nefarious activities of MKULTRA monster Ewen Cameron in the area as well.


In that regard, I should probably mention that given all the songs she wrote on the subject, the title of "The Spangle Maker" is almost certainly a reference to the Spangle butterfly, which has a distinctly Buffalo Bill look to it.  

When you start to add it up; Fraser's history of dissociation and trauma hospitalization, her violent and troubled family, their admitted secret society associations and the nefarious goings-on in her area during her youth-- well, go listen to "The Spangle Maker." You'll see what I mean.

The fact that she felt compelled to write the howly "Great Spangled Fritillary"-- which also namechecks chimeras and Belladonna-- the following year is probably an indication she didn't have a positive association to the topic.

DEW DROP IN SOMETIME

Now, getting to the actual title of the song: Pearls and Dew-Drops are both associated with Heaven in the Bible, literally going from...


...to...


So in that regard, note that there's a possessive apostrophe in the title, indicating that the end-Drops belong to the Pearly Dew-Drops- or to Heaven.

But they dropped. 

From Heaven. 

Heaven or the Vegas, in other words.


WHAT THE HELL IS SHE SINGING?

Ah, the question of the ages. It only took me 33 years but I'm fairly certain I finally cracked the code. Here is my take on the lyrics:

Ruby stars are ruddy
It’s a pearly dewdrops’ drops 
Wakes to light the fire
For some pearly dewdrops’ drops

Ruby Stars and Ruddy Cups
Rose the Pearly Dew-Drops’ Drops
’Tis the lucky lucky penny penny
Binds the pearly to their souls
   
Taciturn’s a color 
Taffy turns alamandite
Rooster eye on my star
To rip asunder what he saw

Ruby Star Dorade, Star Dorade


Yeah, I think a lot of you know exactly what this is all about. Yet another El-Sibyl-Beth Fraser song that sounds cute and charming but actually isn't so much. It's also another example of her modern Delphic prophecy in my opinion and a stunningly clever one at that.

Let's start with "Ruby stars are ruddy, it's a Pearly Dew-Drops' Drop"


The Star Ruby is one of Aleister Crowley's rituals, written for the Astrum Argentum. Which one could reasonably associate with Fallen Angels, don't you think?

What are the odds Fraser knew about this?

Given the compelling evidence of her involvement in witchcraft when she was younger (I have a story to tell you about that) and her considerable literacy, I'd say the odds are pretty decent.


Do also note that we saw a sky-full of ruby stars when Gaga sang "this land is your land" ("your" meaning the Vegas', apparently) at Houston before she Pearly-dropped to the stage.



However, we should also note that the ruby is a solar symbol and that we saw ruby suns over the UK in October, a distinctly apocalyptic sight caused by the freak Hurricane Ophelia.


I should also add that it sounds very much like Fraser is also singing "ruby suns" on the double track on the song.

I said it once before but it bears repeating.



"WAKES TO LIGHT THE FIRE"

So the next line is "wakes to light the fire," meaning the Ruby Star. 

So in that light, let's remember that Ophelia formed- or "woke"- the same day the Sonoma-Napa-Santa Rosa fires (or hellstorms, more accurately) kicked up on the other side of the world.

I should also mention that fire and the supernatural showed up in El-Sibyl-Beth Fraser's lyrics quite often around this time. 

We had the Water Witch telling her consorts "we're covered by the sacred fire, when you come to me, you come to me broke" in "Lorelei." and learned that Pandora was "hidden within, she's in the candle that burns the shop" in "Millimillenary," whose very title suggests the Apocalypse. 

Plus, hats. 

"FOR SOME PEARLY DEW-DROP'S DROP"



The red suns and the Sonoma wildfires also preceded the Los Angeles fires currently burning and supplying us all with horrific, apocalyptic scenes.


"RUBY STARS AND RUDDY CUPS"



Well, we saw the Star Ruby associated wth Aleister Crowley so note his Thoth deck's depiction of the Whore of Babylon and her Cup of Abominations. 

In Thelema that cup contains the Elixir Rubeus, which is indeed made of the Filth of Adulteries. This sex magic was also enshrined in the Thelemic "Cakes of Light" sacrament and derived from rather unhinged Gnostic sects such as the Borborites. Sects whose practices later evolved into the "Black Mass" of Medieval Satanists:


Very ruddy, indeed.

So maybe I wasn't so crazy to see this band as Heralds of the Apocalypse.



"ROSE THE PEARLY DEW-DROPS' DROP"

So is this all more Secret Sun leap-taking and crazy talk? Well, let's go to the tape...

In the video, we open on stained glass windows of the Archangels, taken from the chapel at Holloway Sanitarium...



...which is instantly overlaid by a waterfall. 

Angels. Fall. Get it?


Next we see a fire ("wakes to light the fire")...


...from which Our Lady, Queen of Sibyls, emerges, singing the Hymn of the Pearls.


And just in case you didn't get the reference, Orion's Belt is known as the "String of Pearls" by the ancient Arabs...



...and the Nephilim to the ancient Jews.


Do remember that Our Lady voices the role of Sofia, Queen Mother of the Nephilim in the Millennium Dome Show. In case you miss the reference, the official comic book helpfully depicts the Sky People as Demons of the Air in their little Genesis 6:4 ritual.

The way the British Government chose to ring in the Millennium. 

With the Fallen Angels and the Nephilim.


Also remember that Houston, Grangemouth and St. Regulus roughly correspond to Orion's Belt, in much the same way the Great Pyramids do. Grangemouth is in the place of Alnilam, the Pearl.


Bonus Factoid: A proposed sequel to Beetlejuice was announced in October, to star many members of the original cast.


Including Winona.


And of course we saw the quite unimpeachable connection between Rose and the Nephilim in our previous post, in the Geordie Rose-Orion connection...



...and the Fraser-resonating Rose McGowan (44) and her role in the fall of various demons in Babylon, especially the Prince of Hell.


Note that McGowan sports the same crop that Our Lady did when she was sorting through her own sexual abuse, though not nearly as stylishly. Interesting coincidence there.

It's also interesting to note that Emma Watson started sporting a gender-neutral kind of look after filming Beauty and the Beast. Our Lady was neutralizing gender long before Watson was born.


It's also worth noting that Perl is a common programming language, created by a NASA engineer, of all things


And this Perl is apparently rising too.




And a reader reminded me that I forgot to mention that Ruby is a programming language too.


"'TIS THE LUCKY-LUCKY PENNY-PENNY"


This is fascinating- the lucky-lucky penny-penny has all kinds of interesting connotations, including the penny-like appearance of Venus.


And the old, equally-orange British penny has our old friend Ishtar on the face.


And the new penny has Elizardbeast II on its. But what's that on the reverse there?



"BINDS THE PEARLY TO THEIR SOULS"

Well, don't quote me on this but I believe the elements of the United Kingdom standard are cropped to focus on....


...Regulus...

...and...



...Vega.

What does this have to do with the Pearly being bound to their souls? 

Well, I believe the significance of the October 1, 2044 occultation is that somebody believes it marks the date of the arrival of the Nephilim, the Vegas, the Space-Cyborgs, the Pearly Dew-Drops' Drops. Whatever.

Why do I believe this? And how will this bind the Pearly to our souls?




Because that's exactly what they're telling us.


TACITURN'S A COLOR

It sure is. And what color is that, exactly?


Like you didn't know already. 

What's the significance of this to Our Lady?
“My mother had been a drummer in a pipe band, and my father played accordion. There were hundreds of British pop records at home—the Beatles, Petula Clark, Lulu—and I got shanghaied into singing hymns at Beancross Primary School when I was six. It was wonderful growing up with music in the house, because there was so much tension just outside the door, like our Protestant segregation from Catholics. My brother and grandfather were in the Orange Lodge, and you weren’t allowed to cross the road when they marched. Religion left me numb.”

Oh, Bean Cross Primary, is it? Well, that would mean Our Lady grew up right down the road from where these little charmers are now sitting...



...whom the Queen and the Prince paid a visit to this past summer. 

Well, the Horse is the white of the eyes, after all. 

Drink full and descend.


"TAFFY TURNS ALAMANDITE"


So Alamandite (archaic for Almandine) is in line with the recurring imagery of fire and precious stones in this song. 


Almandine is also the birthstone of people born in the Autumn.

So who is Taffy and why does he or she turn it?

Well, there are a couple possibilities I'm thinking about. Taffy is a diminutive for David in Welsh and Lyra was also called "King David's Harp." We'll get to the significance of that in a moment.



Since Our Lady is not only a musical genius but also incredibly well-read, my guess is that's she may be using Taffy as a stand-in for the Moon. Why? Because of the original verse:

Taffy was born
On a Moon Shiny Night,
His head in the Pipkin,
His Heels upright. 

Why is this significant in the overall prophetic narrative?



Possibly because of the images we saw this summer in which the Moon indeed turned Almandine. 

I should note that in various renderings of this song Fraser is singing "Taffy turns a color," leading me to suspect she may have been Liz'ing the consonant sounds to make a pun. 

So "Taffy turns a color," and "Taciturn's a color" are both prophecies of the Orange Moon. I think there are all kinds of double meanings encoded into her lyrics, signaled by the opening line "Ruby Stars are Ruddy" which is both redundant and a possible reference to the Elixir Rubeo.

"ROOSTER EYE ON MY STAR"



That's a rooster eye and an image of the Ring Nebula in Lyra. I can see why someone might think that's a rooster eye, don't you?


Bringing this up to date, we recently saw the story of the techno music being beamed to a planet orbiting Luyten's Star in Canis Major....


...which was originally symbolized by a Rooster. The project is aligned with Barcelona's Sonor Festival, which has featured Fraser-adjacent acts like Massive Attack and Star Slinger, probably several others besides.


"TO RIP ASUNDER WHAT HE SAW"


Here we see the lunar left eye of Our Lady of the Moon and the Melodies superimposed over the image of the Archangel Michael, reminding us of the lunar occultation of Michael's star Aldebaran the night of the Sutherland Springs massacre in Texas.


I'm kind of thinking that if you can call a David "Taffy" then there's no reason you couldn't do the same for Devin. But I digress.

Either way, this caught my eye- Kelley's ex-wife Tessa Brennaman (her friends call her "Tassie") took to the air to reveal just what a violent and mind-controlled erratic man the Sutherland Springs gunman was. 

Brennaman is an interesting name, as it's a derivative of this...


...in other words, a Dew-Drop Drop.

I will say here that I think it's also possible that "rip asunder" what the "Rooster Eye" saw might be a reference to tearing a hole in the dimensional veil. 

I'll tell you why.

RUBY STAR DORADE, STAR DORADE


OK, here's where Our Lady, Queen of Sibyls, really starts to scare me. 

"Rooster eye on my star/ To rip asunder what he saw" takes on a whole new meaning when you realize that the star she identifies is a ruby star as "Dorade," or the constellation Dorado.

Three years after "Pearly Dew-Drops' Drop was released astronomers spotted a supernova- or a star ripped asunder-- in the constellation of Dorado. 

And I'll forgive you if you think it looks like a rooster eye.


And more recently, astronomers from Chris Cornell University claimed to have spotted two colliding galaxies in the constellation of Dorado. 

Shortly after Chris Cornell U. held a giant Witchcraft exhibit.

Dorado is also home to the Large Magellanic Cloud, which isn't really a cloud but an entirely separate galaxy.

So here we see the implication of dimensional barriers and wormholes in the form of supernovas and nebulas and all the rest of it. It's all pretty way out to some, but apparently not to people like Geordie Rose the Pearly Dew Drops' Drop.




Dorado refers to a goldfish, in this case the Mahi-Mahi, or dolphin fish. Which are known for changing colors while they die.

Just throwing that out there.


And it's clear that the director of the "Pearly" video was read in on the lyrics since he zooms in on a goldfish in one of the stained-glass windows.


Maybe Donald Trump and his BFF here were read in as well, considering they were feeding the goldfish while the wifeys were admiring pearls.


And you can't make this stuff up; there's another outdoor installation in New York City called El Dorado: The New Forty-Niners the same time we see the pearly dew-drops on 23rd Street.

Oh, before I forget- that September 23 thing?


Our Lady lets out a doozy of a howl at the 2:39 mark in the official video. What's the significance of this, you might be asking your phone?


Well, 23/9 is how you write September 23rd everywhere else but America.


Kind of thinking that's not a coincidence.



MEANWHILE, BACK IN THE STATES


Do note that we repeatedly see Our Lady superimposed over those burning sticks. Why is this significant, you may ask?


That's the significance. 

And Tampa has been in the news quite a bit lately, hasn't it?


We saw this Tampa resident show up in the news, on the 34th anniversary of the release of the Cocteau Twins' Head Over Heels album.

I don't actually think he was a fan.


We saw the emergence of a new Son of Sam serial shooter in Tampa...


...right about the time Cocteau Twins fan Daisy Berkowitz (named after the Son of Sam, in case you missed that) died at the age of 49. 

He was the original guitarist for Marilyn Manson, named after another notorious figure linked to the Process Church of the Final Judgement. 


And then this odd story here. Was she actually spouting gibberish...


... or was she listening to the Cocteau Twins on her iPod?


Tampa more recently saw a number of Pearly Dew-Drops dropping.

Or meteorites. I can't tell, it's not Fireball Season yet. 

Because it never has been and never will be Fireball Season. 

Because Fireball Season doesn't actually exist.



Finally, we see pastoral scenes of the band admiring a waterfall while Our Lady chants the "Ruby Star Dorade, Star Dorade..."


...mirroring the Eriadnus constellation, which takes the Pearly Drops from the String of Pearls to Dorado. Which the Trumps seem to be ritually reenacting during their Japan visit.

Big fans, those Trumps. Or so I'm told.


...note also that the archaic Harpa Georgii constellation bordered the waterfall, as does the Whale Cetus.

The song is called "Elizabeth Fraser"


So now we see that Heaven or Las Vegas was not just a one-off, it's a companion piece to "Pearly Dew-Drops' Drop." Both seem connected to the War in Heaven scenario.

It was while promoting "Pearly" that Fraser and Robin Guthrie claimed their music was writing itself and Fraser compared herself to the medium Rosemary Brown, who was said to compose the most extraordinary musical works while channeling a number of dead composers.

It was also the same year Our Lady was accused of practicing subliminal sorcery with her enigmatic vocals.

I'm thinking that it might not be a bad idea to try to figure out some of her other lyrics in case they might be hiding clues on how to avoid having our souls binded to the Pearlies.

  1. At the heart of it all, is the secret sun - few know its name, and fewer still know where it truly is, or why it dominates life on Earth.

    The Union Jack symbolises its importance in triplicate.

    The Leonine era of a once ruby star is coming to an end, and many other representations and symptoms of this ending can be discovered.

    2. The Union Jack is the flag of the union of The British Isles, I emphasise this obvious aspect because even though 'union' & 'isles' are mentioned It does not incorporate anything from the flag of y Gymraeg (Wales), nor anything from what is the occupied territory of 'Northern Ireland' (or The Isle of Man, Guernsey, Jersey etc.), only England & Scotland are represented in the standard, but what are the England & Scotland this flag represents? They're those of long defeated peoples ruled by those who ultimately derive from elsewhere - the sunnier part of the globe - that in contemporary parlence is referred to as 'The Middle East', also charles windsor claims to be a descendent of Vlad The Impaler, but doesn't seem to have any trouble out in the sun (this would emphasise his not being 'from round 'ere').

      Aside from the visual aspect of the flag, with Its bursts of red, white & blue emanating from Its centre - a twinkle twinkle little star - there's also the history of the red cross, of England, being of Phoenician origin, so another sunny source compared to the grey days we're so often blessed with here.

      The people do not know who they are, our ancestors subject to what metastasised into proto-globalism long before those now rallying for reparations and the like ever lucked out, the royalty is not ours & nor are the symbols such as the union jack & the songs sung to honour It, all but fragments are alienated here, we're all but devoted to something other than us.

    5. Also the absence of incorporating elements from The Welsh & (Northern) Irish flags as part of Jack emphasises defeat, & defeat is the message of this standard as although Scots & Englanders may puff their chests with pride at their occupation of the dominion embodied by the flag they're just as defeated - sold out, paid for & bought as the rest of us penny-whore debt slaved-Folk, & the 'one thing' 'keeping this island afloat' post 'industrial decline'?

  4. Chris,

    In response to what you wrote, "Given the compelling evidence of her [Elizabeth Fraser's] involvement in witchcraft when she was younger (I have a story to tell you about that)..." I feel compelled to share this:

    "Elizabeth had a strange reputation. In his book Dictionnaire du Rock, Michka Assayas relates a story Robin had told him. 'A pet shop owner once accused her of stealing a snake.'" –– https://unbound.com/books/ethereal-punks-the-cocteau-twins-story/excerpt

    Here is more on snakes in witchcraft:

    "Snakes have long had a predominant role in magic-making. Live snakes may be used in rituals, and the skins, fangs and venom of poisonous snakes are common in spells and potions." –– http://www.witchcraftandwitches.com/terms_animals.html

    Snakes in Scottish witchcraft:

    "SECOND WITCH
    Fillet of a fenny snake,
    In the cauldron boil and bake."
    –– "The Scottish Play," Macbeth, Act IV, Scene 1

    The Survey of Scottish Witchcraft Database from the University of Edinburgh has several cases involving ritual use of snakeskin (also, by the way, garland and wax). http://witches.shca.ed.ac.uk/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.caseformfuseaction=home.main

    1. Ah, you beat me to the punch. When I first started paying attention to the lyrics and putting all the pieces together I shared my findings with Gordon, who immediately recognized we were looking at a hedge witch. The bit with the snake immediately brought the "dead forest things are offered here" line in "But I'm Not."

      Fraser also used to wear jewelry she made of chicken bones and seashells, which couldn't get any witchier if she rode around on a broom.

      A fascinating puzzle of a woman.

  8. While different, I do see some similarities between Elizabeth Fraser and Sinead O'Connor, it's weird, really. And with both having done recordings of "Song to the Siren" - both have voices for it, no doubt - but to where the ethereal nature is palpable. Also, during World War II, Allied pilots, as you well know, talked of "fireballs" or "feuerballs" flying alongside them on bombing raids to Japan or over Germany. The so-called "foo fighters." Seemed as though "fireball season" was happening quite a bit in the 1940's.

    1. Well, Sinead was very heavily influenced by Fraser, like so many singers in that late 80s wave. The Cocteau Twins were a musician's band, even though they weren't what you call musos. But it was usually the musicians who were stopped dead in their tracks by them. I know three prog guys who dropped all the Yes and ELP as soon as they heard the Sibyl. I kept trying to work the foo fighters into the B&B movie thing but it got yanked for space.

  9. With regards to Jeruselam and the rebuilding of the 3rd temple

    An invocation to usher in end times, is purely ritualistic, because geographically, the biblical Temple mount was...on a mountain.

    The AlAsqa or Dome of the Rock is in a valley (so whatever invocation is being ushered in, will be faked)

    2/ A rebuilding of the holy of holies means, one participant has enough parts to reconstruct the Ark of the Covenant (it has many many parts)

    3/ Only once the ark of covenant and Holy of holies are available, can the Mahdi be activated to usher in a portal/stargate - for whatever 4th dimension into material world (or maybe the symbology is there to make sufficient people think and thus manifest/precipitate such a event)

  13. Great work Chris, hot damn.

    I do wonder how you manage your day-to-day with such consistently high quality ecstatic perceptions. Maybe a 7 helpful lifestyle hints for the syncro-mystic would look good in your future published oeuvre. I’m sure I could learn something from it.

    So much material you’ve been putting up here – gah! I haven’t fully processed the last six or seven postings…

    As you’ve been circling in on a variety of Highland concerns I keep thinking of the show The Ωmega Factor. I’ve been meaning to look into the the various people behind the 1979 BBC Scotland series, Jack Gerson his daughter, the writers, etc.. for some time. I guess I’ve assumed I’d eventually see details and odd connections described here at the Secret Sun.
    If there’s a better Scottish - mind control by intelligence agencies aligned with ruthless occultists – type show I need access to it immediately. (Plus the location gear they used were those barely portable video rigs that provide an especially pleasing old-school image on CRTs.)

    Overall your notions of Revelation as star lore time stamp seems dead phucking on. I was thrilled to see that you mentioned the key perceptions herein of procession and cyclicality.

    Not too long ago you mentioned the whole smart machine AI personalities future hell concern and it made me remember not only Douglas Adams’ Genuine People Personalities via the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation but also Philip K. Dick’s various takes on the upcoming phenomenon.
    My brain claims it was in Ubik (?) where a protagonist has to haggle with the “friendly” robot brain embedded in his front door to gain egress. If I remember correctly spare change was needed to placate to door, the fridge, the toaster. Ever since reading that - however many decades ago it was - I’ve been waiting for such micro-transactions for controlling our moment to moment to be implemented. Plenty of these payment models have been explored in this generation. We seem to be on a new engineerable cusp here…

    Ooh, also I have to note that the cover of my copy of “The Lost Constellations – Forgotten Star Lore” is that very image of Cygnus and Lyra you’ve shown a number times. Apparently, with your kind help, we’re all discovering that these symbols and processions are not quite so forgotten as John Barentine’s title suggests. Obsolete? Extinct? Not so much...

    Whenever you notice that some of your recent occupying thoughts tie into the sledgehammer subtlety of the Wonder Woman film – it would be great to get your summation of that movies’ throbbing mass of connections.

    And since you mentioned Sekhmet here; that outrageously awful Mummy movie was super massively blatant as well. Sure it’s a abject failure but can’t we learn as much from the failures? Especially when they’re so blatant. The last scene dropped my jaw to the floor. Plus it’s written by Jon Spaihts. There’s sinus vibrating aspects to that character – fo sho. How did he get into Ridley Scott’s orbit to write Prometheus? Passengers is a love letter to Kubrick hidden narratives to such an extreme that it could be considered a quasi-sequel to The Shinning + Space Odyssey. I can’t find where his parents may have crossed into the military-industrial complex but it seems pregnant with research potential.

    Many Thanks, off to think of Orion...

      That Mummy movie is a bridge too far for me, though.

      This could be nothing but I read in the high-tech paper, The Register today that people visiting the 'mermaid's place' (Starbucks) are inadvertently mining the Monero crypto-currency for someone mysterious.

      Bear with this quote - 'Coin Hive's software (Javascript badsed) is freely available, and when run in a webpage uses the visiting computer's spare CPU cycles to mine the digital currency Monero. The idea was that, rather than rely on ad clicks and views, website owners pocket revenue by running coin-mining code in visitors' web browsers: the extracted digital money being funneled back to webmasters via Coin Hive.'

  17. Great post! & I can't help but think so much of what we're seeing/experiencing now was planned in some way, maybe its retroactive in the sense in that someone(s) in the future using quantum computers/AI are re-writing their past (our present)? Literally editing reality in a Burroughsian sense certainly has its appeal...& if those in power had such technology at their disposal, wouldn't they use it?

    & on that note, I wonder if those behind what we're seeing now unfold might be similar to this:

    https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/esp_sociopol_eschaton.htm#The%20Aquarium%20Conspiracy

    Note that it was all written 20 years ago. & its connected to the infamous "Aviary" meme of UFOlogy, which could all be limited hangout or straight up BS. But still, lots of relevant bits strewn through it all make me think whoever wrote it knew an awful lot more than they were letting on, & its ALL about eschatology & altering consciousness in the service of a very specific view of reality :

    "In the beginning there was eschatology--the branch of theology dealing with the end times. Dan, having spent many years first studying physics and then metaphysics, came to the conclusion that the scientists have been looking at the world upside down. Mind, not matter, is the foundation for all realities. Moreover, the materialist paradigm was in danger of imminent collapse, being subverted on the inside by its own contradictions, and on the outside by the growing body of evidence for the paranormal.

    Creating and maintaining a reality is no easy game. It requires a lot of magic, and a lot of conscious critters like ourselves who are pretty good at collective self-deception. Fortunately-- or perhaps unfortunately--our particular reality game has about reached its natural conclusion, and we are waking up to the fact that mind and matter are not separate. We are undergoing an exciting but stressful revolution in our collective consciousness.

    This revolution, or global spiritual emergency, will bring upheavals and overloads in our global consciousness that will impact the material Earth for better or worse, and may quickly get out of control. We also will be opening up to other realities that will be impacting us as well. Our present very tidy sense of reality and its boundaries is due to become much more fluid and permeable. Every spiritual tradition takes very seriously its prophesies about the end of the world, but for the first time we are seeing these prophesies turning into believable predictions of earth and reality changes.

    That is how Dan fell from physics into eschatology. After experiencing numerous slammed doors among his former scientific colleagues, he decided that the most logical place to find fellow eschatologists would be in various intelligence agencies and among investigators of the paranormal. Dan next addressed how to communicate about the eschaton.

    Even a small hint that the government is worried about the end of the world might start a chain reaction of panic, which could possibly serve as a trigger for the eschaton. On the other hand, people inside the government might be wanting to set up a kind of civil defense network vis a vis the eschaton, and so they would be looking for people on the outside who could much more freely network among the general public.

    An important link in the communication chain is what has become known as the Aviary. This is the final link next to the public network, and so it must be heavily disguised by its own surrealistic smoke screen. The Aviary functions best by amplifying people’s own misconceptions about the paranormal. It does this by helping to over-inflate individual pieces of the puzzle so that particular investigators get pushed further into their own blind alleys."

    & I think Jerusalem will be ground zero for all this, literally & metaphorically.

  18. The tv series,Gotham was originally developed by Bruno Heller who is best known for HBO's Rome and CBS's The Mentalist. Red John had an obsession with William Blake.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_John
    In season 2's finale episode "Red Sky in the Morning", a William Blake theme is introduced, when a person, whom we believe at the time to be Red John, saves Patrick Jane from being killed under the direction of deranged slasher-movie makers Ruth and Dylan. Jane is tied with saran wrap to a chair and, while he is immobilized, Red John recites the first verse of the William Blake poem "Tyger Tyger":
    Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
    In the forests of the night
    What immortal hand or eye
    Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

  21. Excellent post, Chris.
    I don't know if you are or ever were into young adult novels (i'm not, but it makes little difference) because there is a book series i'm sure you've heard of by Philip Pullman called His Dark Materials which begins with The Golden Compass/UK title The Northern Lights. The main character is Lyra Belaqua/Lyra Silver Tongue. The series picked up again this passed October with a prequel where Lyra is a baby. I find it interesting that the main action gets underway early in the book after the lead Malcolm oversees a failed attempt at a dead drop.
    In this book the lead antagonist from the original series is based in Sweden(CERN?) (her name is Mrs Coulter). In the original series we learned that the Angels, which played a rather ambiguous part in the climax of the story, were created when Dust, the elementary particle which drives the conflicts in the story, condenses. It's noted that they only appear as winged humans because that's what is expected of them; in reality, they are much more complex shapes, more similar to "architecture".
    I wonder if you'd find any of this interesting or worth investigating. You see, I know that H.G. Wells and Aldous Huxley and co., who are still required reading in school to this day, were involved with intelligence operations and either commissioned of obliged to write the books they wrote. And so I wonder if something similar is going on here with Philip Pullman.
    I'm a little rusty on the story since it's been years since I read it, but I always felt that there was something a bit more raw and compelling about the ideas expressed within this series as opposed to the other well known YA novels.

    1. I read The Book of Dust {La Belle Sauvage) a few weeks ago. What struck me most was the beginnings of the student organization,The League of St. Alexander. The League was operating in the elementary school to encourage kids to turn in their parents. "The League was set up in memory of the brave little boy, and its emblem is a picture of the lamp he carried up onto the roof to signal where to come" Once students earned a higher degree they are able to hide their badge behind their lapels. The origin story included a governor of the province, Regulus who ordered that all his officials become Christians.

    2. Oh, I see. Very interesting. It also gives insight into the psychology of the degrees of initiation. The more useful you become to an organisation, the better not to advertise who you are working for so blatantly, hence the practice of hiding badges. Also, there goes that Regulus again.

    4. Yes, it also correlates with the siren/water motif.

      *I forgot to mention that Lyra's world is parallel to our own and so I figured it would be an okay leap of thought to interchange Sweden and Switzerland. I did not confuse the two. Ha.

      I wonder if Lyra's dad being named Asriel (as in the angel of death) and his dæmon being called Stellmaria (star of the sea) has any particular implication. I suppose any good author could come up with subliminal connections within their own story, or be influenced subconsciously by the symbols in the real world so that they end up reflecting them in their stories, but I do know for a fact that the books which become world wide phenomena are not able to do so on the merit of 'good writing' alone. And so I am a little suspicious of His Dark Materials. It was a fun story though haha

    1. Ah, well I wouldn't recommend them to anyone passed the age of 20 any way. I read them when I was in middle school, so I can't seem to shake the impulse to keep up with the story.

      But while we are on the topic of Philip Pullman's personal beliefs, I definitely agree with you. Mainly I find his use of the Magesterium to be silly. It is creepy and sinister in the story, but like most YA novels it ignores the responsibility of the lay-person to educate themselves and not be subject to dogma. In the end the only reason Lyra isn't under the thumb of the church is because she's literally the chosen one who happens to be spunky.

      People that strongly deny religion tend to totally miss the actual way in which religious power permeates throughout their culture, and by doing so can only reconstruct that influence in ways that seem cardboard and inhuman.

      I'd prefer to see a character work hard from scratch to subvert and overcome the oppression they realise they live with. Because that is realistic and enlightening. (YA novels are all about salvationist rhetoric, aren't they?)

    However, after one such utterance, during this all but extinguished 'Moffat Era' of the show, an era overloaded with references, resets, fated syncs & coincidences so labyrinthine It makes 'Foucault's Pendulum' (where Dan Brown snatched some of his best ideas) & the rest of Umberto Eco's oeuvre seem simple by comparison, It's later shown that patterns are at work determining what can or cannot be, the title of the episode in which this happens eludes my grasp, but It is pivotol to the plot not just of the episode or the series but the actual show mythos Itself.

    Also aside from the first story, 'An Unearthly Child', in which The Doctor is only stopped from murdering a caveman by a do-gooder human (perhaps an ancestor of the caveman?), The Timelord's been an SJW pioneer the past fifty-four years, so the Gender Bender-ing about to regenerate 'onto our screens' is nothing 'game-changing' It is a continuation of playing It's part resonating with the rainbow warriorisation being applied full-spectrum culture-wide.

    Twinning with the pop-psy detractors of synchromysticism is the use of 'The Doctor's' 'patterns' assertation, by pop-okcullted 'true believers', as a meme to put others who've strayed beyond the concensus Paddock back into their place, a 'safe-space', what those doing so ignore is that 'The Doctor' turned out to be completely wrong about 'things that aren't there'.

    'Sophia' with her lack of hair twins her with the a.i. of 'Ava' from 'Ex Machina' starring Oscar Isaac as It's creator.

    The a.i. of 'Ava' is played by the androgynous Alicia Vikander, check out the new 'Tomb Raider' poster for some unfortunate photo shopping - It looks as if her face isn't quite attached to her head (twinning her again with 'Ava'). Vikander is married to 'David' himself Michael Fassbender - so much twinning here! & during 'Ex Machina' her 'Real Doll'-esque chassis is a sexual/love interest lure for creator & underling both.

    All this talk of high-technological transcendental sexiness, as if spinning an eternity on a hard drive will in anyway be pleasurable, reminds me that in 'Doctor Who', as the post-2005 relaunch carried on, 'The Doctor' himself came to call the 'TARDIS' ('Time And Relative Dimensions In Space') 'sexy' & in the 2011 episode titled 'The Doctor's Wife' (original airdate 14 May 2011 & written by Neil Gaiman), It's anthropomorphosised as a humanoid woman. 'The Doctor's' love-match, which is 'the most beautiful thing' he'd ever seen, is a transcendental being, & this episode also reveals that rather than 'The Doctor' choosing the 'TARDIS' so as to escape 'Gallifrey', 'It/she' chose him. From the wiki on this episode:

    '...before she died, Idris (The TARDIS) whispered, "The only water in the forest is the river," ... Amy asks if the TARDIS will be able to speak again, but the Doctor says no due to "spacey-wacey" reasons.'

    jimmy saville died later in 2011 & the following year the bbc began admitting what he, & others, had been getting away with, I mention saville because one of the aspects of 'Nu-Who' are the 'romances' between 'The Doctor', a being of some 1,000+ years, and the teenage/young adult girls & women 'travelling through time & space' with him, this was something entirely absent from the original run of the series, although the tone for this was set in the 1996 one-off 'TV Movie' which also happens to be when the phrase “I love humans. Always seeing patterns in things that aren’t there.” was first uttered.

  39. Chris,

    Interesting, this Taffy stuff, as the popular Web comic Questionable Content recently had a running joke involving that name.

    The character Hanners, a young and very neurotic woman with spikey hair (though not known to sing), had a "personal assistant" forced upon her by her mother. I should note for those who don't read the comic that Hanners' parents, being owners of a vast global conglomerate, all but rule the world, with one living full-time in an enormous space station in orbit. Archons, indeed. And Hanners grew up in orbit, making her both Star Child descended unto the Earth, and a daughter of the Archons. Naturally, she works incgnito in a coffee shop in Northampton, MA.

    Why does any of this matter? Because the gal sent to be her PA, though named Tilly, is misnamed by the Mother as "Taffy", and the name sticks despite her protests. Thus, the agent of the Archons is rechristened "Taffy" by them as she enters the world of Man.

    Purely a coincidence. Amusing, nonetheless.

  40. P!nk, whose latest album is named 'Beautiful Trauma' (to honour her mk-handlers surely), is famed for her high-wiring (like the Super Bowled Gaga & to a lesser extent, Perry), she's suffered a number of injuries larking about, but syncing her with Sept. 23rd:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/entertainment/video/amas-2017-pnk-performs-beautiful-trauma-suspended-from-high-wire-outside-a-skyscraper-billboard-news/vp-BBFjTJT

    'P!nk brought her usual anti-gravity ballet to the award show, but this time it came from the JW Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles -- many, many stories above the ground, all while performing her latest single, "Beautiful Trauma."'

    a!n't !t beaut!ful!

    & as for Crowley - the crow line / the line of the crow / as the crow flies / the direct route / to direct, with a name like that no wonder The Beast's the goto guy to get things done.

    The 'Millennium Dome' was built on what was known as 'Bugsby's Marsh', 'bug' via Old English means 'demon' & is possibly of Welsh origin meaning 'ghost'.

    + Winona's 'ST2' experience must have been a déjà vu of a déjà vu further twinning her on-screen doppelgänger with whatever she experienced at the 'Rainbow' commune. Two years after moving on from the hippies she suffered 'a traumatic near-drowning at age 12', at the age of 12 she was the spitting image of 'Millie Bobby Brown' who debuted in 'Stranger Things', including water-trauma, also at the age of 12.

    It's not funny not being in on the joke, but considering the ongoing joking fun's not what It's cracked up to be.

    1. Scratch that last line, we're in on the joke, whether we want to be or not, the water's have been spiked with Kool-Aid & we've all drunk deep, laugh so much until you hurt, 'pain is so close to pleasure' afterall.

  41. There is the mundane and banal bedrock, which however terribly misanthropic, is nevertheless easy to understand (if not to discover and discern).

    Everything beyond that is a tangled web woven to preserve the knowledge of the above, yet to occult it from the masses (proles & up), who are unwitting servants of the higher mission to escape it.

    Each cross of the Jack represents the same thing, the cardinals of the one ring that rules us all and in the darkness binds us. It is also a clue that the same power lay behind each army that fought under each flag variation.

    The ruby star and the sapphire star are the same star, the secret sun, and correspond to each half of the Taeguk.

    Forgiving inevitable mutation via oral tradition, the Hopi also recognise that the transition of this Kachina star into blue (from red and white) signifies the arrival of the new world [order]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Star_Kachina

    The red/white/blue transition is also encoded into the Union Jack and the tricolore (among others).

    However, the transitions are exceedingly gradual, even if the white phases are relatively brief, i.e. roughly eleven millennia for each red/blue phase, and roughly a millennium for each intervening white phase. In other words, it won't be white one night, and blue the next. It'll be one poet calling it diamond white one century, and another poet calling it sapphire tinged the next.

    Apparently, 'sapphire tinged' is where we're now at...

  46. Do note that in October of the year 2044, Saturn will be making it's 27 year "Return" to the sign of Sagittarius. It spends roughly 3 years in every sign through the zodiac.

    Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter the Father of Saturn.

    Saturn is about to change signs in a few days (depending on where you are) to Capricorn which is his rulership.

    So whatever "they/we" set in motion on October 1st will turn 27 years old on 10/1/44. *Noting that many celebrities/Stars die at 27 to the Malefic.

  52. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
