"These are the Names of the Vegas Who Watch..."




The Phylax phugazi continues to grow more ridiculous by the day. No one can seem to get their stories straight. 

First it was the Golden Dawn who pulled the Watcher off his Pedestal of Veneration, then it was changed to "far-rightists" when someone informed the hapless authorities that the Golden Dawn are actually anti-Christian neopagans. 

Sounds like a psyop run by Sterling Archer.




Then the sculptor started walking back his claims Phylax was Talos and I'm sorry,  did he say Talos? Weird, he didn't remember actually saying Talos. Anyway, what he actually meant was that Phylax was kinda like Talos. 

Give or take.

And to think, all those dumb kulaks thought that a naked, bloody-red, winged giant with a snake for a head and neck was "satanic."  FFS SMGDH!

The cover story was reportedly revised after a five-year old girl googled "Talos" on her mother's iPhone and pointed out the artwork didn't look like any Talos ever. 

Not even in that weird 80s anime about trolls and radiation.




Of course, Phylax is actually based on the Watchers of Apocryphal books like Enoch and the Testament of Amram: 
(9) [...1 saw Watchers] (10) in my vision, the dream-vision. Two (men) were fighting over me, saying... (11) and holding a great contest over me. I asked them, ‘Who are you, that you are thus empo[wered over me?’ 
They answered me, ‘We] (12) [have been em]powered and rule over all mankind.’ They said to me, ‘Which of us do yo[u choose to rule (you)?’ I raised my eyes and looked.] 
(13) [One] of them was terr[i]fying in his appearance, [like a serpent, [his] cl[oa]k many-colored yet very dark... (14) [And I looked again], and... in his appearance, his visage like a viper, and [wearing...] (15) [exceedingly, and all his eyes...]  




But when I first saw Phylax, I couldn't help but think back on the "Event Horizon" art installation from a few years back, when naked male figures were placed around Madison Square in New York City. 

Some were placed on the street, some placed on rooftops, and the rest were given powers, principalities, thrones and dominion over the kingdoms of the Earth.



No, not that Madison. 


Of course, the reason I thought of it was that it was probably designed under the same directive: get the lowly Terrans accustomed having the Vegas in their midst. 

I heard somewhere that they called it "Event Horizon" to celebrate the news that the Vegas had finally escaped the gravity well of the black hole they were taking as a shortcut to our doomed dominion Earth. 

Forget where. 

Bonus factoid: Vega is a clothing-optional star system.



And just by some weird fluke, Madison Square Park is also hosting "Whiteout," an installation of pearly dew-drops modeled after the Vegas' hunter-killer orb-drones. 

You know, like the ones in Phantasm? Same idea.


In related news, Mickey D's cooking up a delicious new treat just for you...


..."you" meaning the Vegas. Bon appetit!

I have heard rumors that Wendy's is working on a new sandwich called the Double Cheese-Archon™. The patty is made from transgenic octo-horse meat. Plus, transgenic human-pig bacon. It comes with fries and a 24 oz value cup of Abominations.

Can't wait to see what Smash Burger and Five Guys are fixing up. 


In related news, EarthSky.org looks like they were having themselves a zesty round of Secret Sun Scrabble when they cooked up that wacky headline.


Especially since the story they spit out under it makes not one single lick of sense. 

And is that name there --Scott S Sheppard-- some kind of code for Secret Sun Scrabble? I'm kind out of the loop with stoner-speak.

Or perhaps it's a coded reference to Our Lady (Scottish) and her doomed lover (Sheppard).


Or was this absurd nonstory conjured up to celebrate the New Atlantis Baphomets and the Philae-Delphi Vegas, who rose to the Pearly Dew-Drop Bowl that very same day? Your call.


Now, a number of readers have asked me what I thought about the so-called Fraser Sinkhole, which opened the Gates of the Abyss on Christmas Eve 2016 in Fraser, Michigan. 

As if they needed to ask! 

This, of course, is the Sounding of the Fifth Angel's Trumpet. I thought everyone knew that.


And since Our Lady holds the keys to Hell and Death, she deigned to open the Gates of the Abyss once more in Urangan, a little seaside hamlet in the Queensland region of the Upside Down. 

On New Year's Day, this time. 

Just a little reminder what we're in for in 2018. Forecast calls for locusts.


Oh, I almost forgot; Urangan is on the "Fraser Coast." It's Our Lady's coded message to her Elect. Many are called but few are chosen. 

Pray for us, Our Lady.


In related news, The Shape of Water-- which some compare to Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast-- washed away the competition at this morning's Oscar nominations and racked up a  lucky 13 Ausur® nominations. 


So it's official: the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences simply worships this Beast from the Sea! 

And the critics are unanimous! Rex Reed raves, "Who is like unto the Shape of Water? Who is able to make war with it?" Mark Kermode gushes: "The Shape of Water speaks great things and blasphemies!"  Entertainment Weekly swoons: "The Shape of Water has been given unto power to make war with the Saints, and overcome them!"

And yes, Get Out. 

Get out of Babylon, my people, so that you may not receive her ruddy cups.

  3. The siren has been sounding out the Beast from the ocean for a while now. The beast is PLASTIC.

    "Fisherman's shocking discovery as he cuts open a fish's stomach and pulls out pieces of plastic – including bottle tops, a COMB and a cigarette LIGHTER"

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5296927/Fishermans-shocking-discovery-opens-fishs-stomach.html

    "Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans.
    There may now be around 5.25 trillion macro and micro-plastic pieces floating in the open ocean. Weighing up to 269,000 tonnes.
    Plastics consistently make up 60 to 90% of all marine debris studied
    Recent studies have revealed marine plastic pollution in 100% of marine turtles, 59% of whales, 36% of seals and 40% of seabird species examined
    100,000 marine mammals and turtles and 1 million sea birds are killed by marine plastic pollution annually"

    The really bad news is that once the plastic breaks down into micro-plastic it becomes apart of the ocean.

    1. One of the reasons why pregnant women are advised to avoid seafood at all costs. That, and the flushing of Fukushima, and the saturation of pharmaceuticals. Tuna is essentially radioactive Prozac at this point. My sister is trying to have a baby; her Doc told her that eating seafood would do more harm to a fetus than alcohol and tobacco combined.

    3. It's true that everyone should avoid seafood, and most definitely while pregnant. The real reason isn't plastic or radioactivity, though. It's good old-fashioned chemical pollution, heavy metals mostly. There isn't all that much radioactivity, and it's unclear what damage small amounts of plastic can do to human beings, but there is no question that heavy metals are terrible for you, and there's far more of those in the coastlines than they tell you. I know because my dad worked for a while with a guy that worked in a lab that measured exactly that. Needless to say, that guy never touched seafood, nor any of his friends.

    4. Faced with a choice, I hope, between radically rearranging our current global-political-economic order, or massive die-off...yeah doubt it. I recently ran across a scrap of info about sandcrabs -which I use to dig out and keep in a little bucket aquarium or have them swim in the pool of my sand castle as a kid in Pacific Beach- disappearing from San Diego beaches. Very little info except for an academic paper that points to a developing extinction crisis along the California coast due to a variety of factors including global climate and sea change, coastal development...add in the plastics problem and Fukushima...massive coral bleaching...

      To the point: What's more likely to happen? Humankind pulls ourselves out of this mess, or Ancient Alien Astronauts either pull our ass out of the fire or, yeah, eat us...Eat us as recent generations of humans have been consuming the future of their children...

Thousands of centuries ago, a nuclear war nearly wiped out the entire civilization; the survivors lived underground where they became dependent on illusion-creating technology." Sounds about right!

  5. Just weeks after Taco Bell introduced its disquieting "Belluminati" TV ads,a Taco Bell in Montgomery, Alabama (the first capital of the CSA) burned to the ground - mysteriously, of course (sacrifices must be made, says the Grand Wizard of the Belluminati). A "candlelight vigil" was held in memory of the torched fast-food restaurant.

    1. For whom the Bell tolls?
      I'm working on a number of posts right now and one is about Kristen(diving?)Bell being the first ever host of the SAG Awards.
      I noticed that Bell was placed in front of what looked like a fish-tank with bubbles blowing to the surface behind her making her look like she was hosting the show underwater.
      She is also known for playing Veronica MARS (a show I have never watched) and I noticed this year that the Oscars are being held in March (Mars).
      The last time they were held in March was for the 86th Academy Awards hosted by Ellen.
      Bell was also in a movie called 'Deepwater' while on the subject of water, and also one called 'Lifeguard', where she played a swimming pool lifeguard, unlike Justin Timerlake's latest role in Woody Allen's 'Wonder Wheel' where Justin play's a seaside lifeguard, while the action starts (by the looks of the trailer anyway) in the RUBY's CLAM House (Star Ruby?) where a red-headed Kate Winslet greets a young lady who emerges from the underground into Coney Island to say she is the daughter of her husband (I going to have to watch this synch loaded film by the looks).
      Bell also plays herself in the PR disastrous 'The Disaster Artist' starring one James Franco.
      So Bell was an interesting choice for interesting times it seems ;-)

    3. Here is an interesting news story about Bell -

      "A Louisville company has a connection with Kristen Bell, the host of this week's Screen Actors Guild Awards program.
      The connection goes back to September, as Hurricane Irma was approaching Florida.
      Louisville-based Atria Senior Living Inc. relocated more than 600 residents (and 50 pets) from communities across Florida to the Walt Disney World Dolphin and Swan Resort.
      The company has a sheltering agreement with the resort.
      Kristen Bell also was at the resort, and she spent time with the Atria residents and struck up friendships during the storm."

    5. @Mer-man: Do you have any information on Atlanta? After living there for a number of years (two different times at different ages) I've found the place to be terrible for a lot of reasons. Mostly the energy.

      Aside from the guidestones I've heard it is a major hub for human trafficking. Just recently came across the fact that it rests on the 33rd parallel (supposedly as well as Phoenix and Bahgdad) and has something to do with human sacrafice and the energy of that parallel. I found this out after hearing that most cattle mutilations (ufo 🙄) occur along the 37th parallel and dug deeper.

      Also read during an obscure internet dive that Denver and Atlanta are meant to be "sister" cities and that both would become twin capitals of a divided US if the Mississippi river were to flood catastrophically. There was mention that the "tunnels" under the Denver airport ran all the way to Notlanta and under the MS river but...who knows.

      Anyways. Any information concerning Atlanta as a weird region would be appreciated.

      Delete
    6. The main thing you need to know about Atlanta is that it has the headquarters for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and that explains an awful lot.

      For those not in the know: the first step in manufacturing a biological weapon is to make a vaccine. Which is the sort of thing that the CDCP is responsible for organizing.

      The rumor mills say things like, on a day that the airport of Atlanta was closed, allegedly because of a blackout, one jet mysteriously managed to land and take-off, regardless. This jet happened to have a rather interesting trajectory, including Tel Aviv, Mexico City, and Liege (Belgium). Ask yourself what those places are famous for, and join the dots.

      So yeah, I can see how you get to human sacrifice from there.

    7. The "death-vigil" DIDN'T happen in Atlanta though. It happened in Montgomery. I know it's popular to pretend like "The South" is one big pool of homogeneity, but that isn't even in the same state.

  8. You know, I'm not certain about the actual end-game here, especially since it's at times very hard to distinguish the metaphorical from the literal, but when you see stuff like McDonald's deliberately choosing a design that doesn't fit so it spells out "McVega", there is zero chance of something sinister not being afoot.

    In other news, yesterday, at around dawn, a news helicopter crashed near a beach in the city of Recife, killing 2, possibly 3 people. The helicopter, owned by media giant Globo, was called the Globocop. The pilot was a man named Daniel Galvão ("Daniel Hawk"), and get this: he learned how to pilot a helicopter in Las Vegas, where he had been a bus driver for five years.

    2. I wouldn't worry about Fedorovian cosmists resurrecting ancestors from computationally reconstructed DNA. Sci-Fi, nothing but. Sure, I can believe that it may be possible (even soon) to clone a human using a specific synthetic genome. But the wiring of the brain is heavily dependent upon experience, both in-utero and throughout the developmental stages of childhood and early adulthood. The best you'll get is an identical twin with a totally different set of experiences and therefore a totally different neural topology.

      Delete
    3. You aren't thinking far enough. Yeah, you'd get a twin. And what stops anyone from "transplanting" the head of the old twin to the body of the young twin? With no tissue rejection issues whatsoever, because their DNA is the same. Of course, it would be the old twin murdering the young twin, but do you really think that's beyond the ethics of some rich people?

      Delete
    4. Well, I admit that it's reasonable to suppose the ultra-rich have that gruesome fantasy. But still, the immune system is also a function of experience, essentially "rewiring" itself over your lifetime (aging, in part, results from the exhaustion and loss of fidelity of the immune system over time). So "rejection" is still a possibility. I'm not saying it's an insurmountable problem, but I wouldn't bet my dreams of physical immortality on it just yet.

      Personally, I think they already have transmigration/metempsychosis figured out, it has to do with all those trauma rituals they subject their young to (basically fragmenting the psyche so that possession can take place). But head-transplantation I guess would provide better continuity if it could be worked out.

  13. I'm actually working on a post at the moment about the Gold Coast and Fraser Island Chris, so I had to say WTF(?) when you mentioned Fraser Island here in your post.
    The name Fraser Island comes from Eliza Fraser and her story of survival from a shipwreck on the island.
    Captain James Fraser and his wife, Eliza Fraser, were shipwrecked on the island in 1836.
    Their ship, the Stirling Castle, set sail from Sydney to Singapore with 18 crew and passengers.
    The ship was holed on coral while travelling through the Great Barrier Reef north of the island.
    And Urangan is a suburb of Hervey Bay in Queensland, Australia with the local government authority of Fraser Coast Region.
    In Australia we pronounce Hervey Bay as HARVEY BAY, by the way, as in Hurricane Harvey or Harvey Weinstein.
    To the east of the suburb of Urangan lies the northern end of the Great Sandy Strait and Fraser Island.
    There is small marina at Urangan.
    Whale watching tours and ferries to Fraser Island depart from here.
    The Hervey Bay railway line once passed through the suburb, terminating at the Urangan Pier.
    Construction of the Urangan railway line began in 1913.
    The last ship docked at the Urangan pier in January 1985.
    In the far south west of the suburb is the single runway for the Hervey Bay Airport.
    The earliest name for Fraser Island is 'K'gari' in the Butchulla people's language (pronounced 'Gurri').
    It means paradise.

      Robbie is also going to star as Sharon Tate in Tarantino's latest piece of crap about the Manson Family.
      If I was Robbie being 27 years old at the moment and playing Sharon Tate in a movie being made in the year of the 50th anniversary of the film 'Rosemary's Baby' I'd be looking for some very serious spiritual protection right now.

    2. Wow Robbie is really making waves, she is certainly the actress of the moment. The last person who should be making a Manson film is Tarantino, agreed. It will be all flash, blood and gore, without getting into the deeper psychic and sociological/cultural and yes occult dynamics, that shaped that tragedy. The late Ken Russell would have been the right director for this kind of film (he may have made a train wreck of it, but it would be a fascinating train wreck). there are some current filmmakers out there, who would be capable of making an intriguing film about that tragedy. It is not Tarantino.

  16. Chris, the 1st time I ever heard of Ursula K. Le Guin was your post on "The Lathe of Heaven". Then I read Philip K Dick's Exegesis and he mentioned the impact of her writing on him several times.
    https://www.wired.com/2012/07/geeks-guide-ursula-k-le-guin/

    The one movie that I’m really glad I made that I’m still kind of proud of is the 1980 film of The Lathe of Heaven, in which I did play as much part as I wanted to — I couldn’t actually very much at the time, but that’s a good movie still, it still holds up. There was a pointless, meaningless remake of it that died almost instantly.

    One of the weirdest things about movie people is that they always want to remake everything. It must be easier somehow. But they keep coming with requests over and over — they talk about Earthsea and they talk about The Lathe of Heaven, as if I hadn’t written anything else. Maybe they don’t read. Maybe they just look at other people’s movies and think, “Oh, I could do that.

    3. Film producers- They do not read, I can assure you.Matter of fact most producers do not even know how to read. Something I learned about the film trade is that most people working on it, maybe 9 out of ten, just stumble into it and never had any idea they would end up in it. Also most of them do not like what they do for a living and are very cynical about their work, only caring for the money they make. That is true for all areas of the film trade, from grips and production assistants to the most famous and well paid producers and directors. Maybe that is why people working on film making end up alcoholics, drug addicts or both of those things. A sad paradox is that people who really care about cinema and try to break in into the film trade usually end up quitting because of the decadent and corrupt system they encounter and the personal attacks of the sick people they have to work with. Fassbinder made a movie about film makers that he titled Beware the Holy Whore. He sure knew what he was dealing with.

    'While some were happy to hear the singer would be bringing sexy back to the Super Bowl, others couldn't help but feel like Jackson had gotten the raw end of the deal. ... "I'm part of a community that consider themselves artists," he said then. "And if there was something I could have done in her defense that was more than I realized then, I would have." He also said, "I probably got 10 percent of the blame, and that says something about society. I think that America's harsher on women. ... A decade later, that's still true, but it's important that Timberlake continues to talk about this incident. It's important to hear him admit that he handled it wrong and would do things differently now, even if it's just so he can clear the air before hitting the stage on Feb. 4. And it's important that this maybe, possibly, is the hint of a chance for Janet to get a well-deserved do-over.'

    'Meanwhile, Jackson released a statement in which she apologized for the "costume reveal" gone-wrong: "It was not my intention that it go as far as it did.'

    Then who/what's intention was It?

    In the early 90's my brother made an ai that was programmed with different grammar rules etc. But had no real knowledge of English until we typed into it originally it would parrot what we said until later it would branch off with new phrases. We had a game yo help program it where my brother would reset the ai and we would say really mundane things into it and we would see how fast it devolved into mean or inappropriate sayings it was never long but that was the hardest thing for him to come up with concrete rules to program, just saying. But we as children recognized this in the 90's why is it just coming up now?

  19. I just saw a variation of this new Honda 2018 commercial. It reminds me of the watchers on the buildings and talks about how gold can become a lesser metal.

  20. Yeah, transhumanism + art = agitprop of the now/consensus of the future. Found this very telling article from 2014...

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/zoltan-istvan/transhumanist-art-is-brin_b_5447758.html

    Quote:

    “Enhancement technologies promise the creation of superhuman beauty,” says David Pearce, who co-founded the World Transhumanist Association / Humanity+ in 1988 and is also the author of The Hedonistic Imperative, which advocates phasing out the biology of suffering in all sentient life. “Tradition says beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Less poetically, neuroscience suggests that beauty lies in activation of the medial orbitofrontal cortex. In principle, intelligent agents can use biotechnology to amplify and enrich the molecular signature of aesthetic appreciation beyond the bounds of normal human experience. Artistic creations and the everyday world alike can look sublime.”

    On the surface, transhumanist art seems like an oxymoron to some. Is it possible to combine the scientific nature of transhumanism with creative works for admiration and improvement of self? The simple answer is yes. Art is not bound by preset rules, which is perhaps why it plays such a special place in society, and why it has the power to push new movements forward. Transhumanism is also not bound by rules. It is, after all, a movement that seeks to improve upon and move beyond what we know and experience as humans. The creation of transhumanist beings — which we are slowly becoming — is perhaps the most artistic endeavor humanity has ever dared to pursue. Transhumanist art will help guide us to becoming masterpieces."

    OK. Uh-huh..& who exactly gets to define what is & isn't "sublime" or a "masterpiece"? Talk about agendas. I'm guessing in the future, the real nonconformists will be fined/jailed for being less than aesthetically pleasing? Not bound by rules my ass.

    1. "Transhumanism is also not bound by rules."

      Interesting statement, Can anyone can truly prove that statement true or false at this point?

    2. I would resist the temptation to assume that transhumanism must necessarily be one thing only. It may only seem that way because its current form seems to reproduce the coercion and soul-killing hatred of life that seems to characterize the current age. Dan Simmons' Hyperion series seems to suggest (among other things) that genetic alteration may also be a vector of a celebratory, life-affirming impulse. Just not for us, not right now.

  22. A New Zealand rocket company launched a giant disco ball into space on 1/21/18. It is expected to be the brightest thing in the night sky for the next 90 days until it "is pulled back into earth's orbit". Interestingly, the company didn't bother releasing a press statement about it until today, 1/24/18.

    They're calling it "The Humanity Star", because I guess "The Star of Usurpation of the Gods' Powers" is just too much of a mouthful.

    1. This has been going on for a long time (the idea is even older).

      A quick google search finds Jan93, Jan16, Jul17:

      Now, the big question is whether there really is a man-made reflector up there, or whether there's something else that we need to be given such a non-scary explanation for?

      Perhaps it's the Star of Bethlehem?

    2. *nods* I remember hearing about cases like it before. Interesting idea about it being a cover for something else up there.

  27. Hey Chris, was interested to know your thoughts on the blue moon lunar eclipse just around the corner. Especially since according to SpaceWeather.com that the eclipse will make the moon orange:

    BLUE MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE: On Wednesday, Jan. 31st, there's going to be a "Blue Moon"–the second full Moon in a calendar month. People who go outside to look may see a different hue: bright orange. This Blue Moon is going to be eclipsed, swallowed by copper-colored shadow of Earth for more than an hour. The eclipse will be visible from Asia, Australia, and most of North America: visibility map.

    The bright orange color of the eclipse may be chalked up to volcanic activity–or rather, lack thereof. Atmospheric scientist Richard Keen from the University of Colorado explains:

    "During a lunar eclipse, most of the light illuminating the Moon passes through Earth's stratosphere where it is reddened by scattering," he says. "If the stratosphere is loaded with dust from volcanic eruptions, the eclipse will be dark. The cataclysmic explosion of Tambora in 1815, for instance, turned the Moon into a dark, starless hole in sky during two subsequent eclipses."

  28. I just found out about a 1988 film by Roger Corman titled In the Aftermath, about survivors of a nuclear Holocaust being contacted by an angel. Totally weirdo. About half the film is footage from an anime feature titled Angel Egg.

    1. Singer and bandleader Mark E. Smith died today at age 60. Now I am truly depressed. The Fall was the consciousness of Rock. Smith sure angered many people since 1977, including his fans, but he sure had guts and convictions. And that has always being rare in Rock. Some have called him the anti-Bono, and with good reason. May he rest in peace.

  31. More excellent, illuminating work, Chris. I hope those who might've dismissed you before with regards to all this Vega stuff are taking you very seriously now. But The Secret Sun has always been on the cutting edge in terms of insights, knowledge and wisdom. Take heed, people.

  32. Rex Reed hated The Shape of Water, he even credited Benicio del Toro as director of the movie. Most mainstream movie reviewers (as opposed to film critics) just pretend they saw the films they are supposed to write about and just read the trade papers to fake a review.

  33. The time of the clones has officially come. If this news has been released now, then the technology has surely been established by the military years ago. Which also suggests the human population will soon be even more expendable. What timing!
