"Repurposed as a Mechanism for Public Ritual."




Well, here we are yet again. Apparently the Siren Songs in Hobart and Perth were just warmups, because now the same folks behind those explicit and self-acknowledged public rituals have brought their act to England. Ipswich, Suffolk, England to be precise. And it's pretty much the same deal as before, only the ante has clearly been good and upped.

Believe or don't, my dear friends, but the clock is most definitely ticking.




This time the ritual is being marked to observe the end of the Great War, the War to End All Wars. Well, ostensibly. But this new model has made a definite upgrade on the Siren Songs. I mean, those rituals involved hiring a number of singers to do their best Elizabeth Fraser imitations, right?

Well, three guesses what the good folks at Supple Fox decided to do for this particular occasion...





Aw, you guys. You only needed one guess.




In case any of you good folks happened to get yourselves some proper churchin' back when you were wee wanes, you probably immediately recognize that the term "Clarion Call" is very commonly used to refer to the Seven Angels and the Seven Trumpets of The Apocalypse of St. John. Look it up if you doubt.



The clarion is also identified with the Angel Moroni, who revealed the Book of Mormon to that great American Gnostic (and stone-cold mack-daddy), Joe Smith.†



Say, wasn't there some lunatic blogger who'd been running around blathering that Elizabeth Fraser is in fact the Sibyl of our Age, and as such is a (or the) Herald of the Apocalypse? Apparently he thought as much as far back as 1986.

Poor bastard. As we speak he's probably downing a bottle of 'Bird in some back alley somewhere, caked in his own filth and shame. Too bad, seeing his visions have finally begun to come true.


Well, you do know that timing is everything, so I thought I should probably bring up a certain little news story-- actually, a surprisingly big news story-- that a lot of good folks out there have been sharing with me. The Guardian piece is interesting....



First of all, there's that rather disturbing publicity photo from 1996 we first looked at back in 2008. But then there's this little piece of info about "Teardrop" being inspired by the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard.

I mean, seriously; how many pop songs can you say that about? I told you this woman is very highly intelligent and well-read. 

When will you believe already?



The Guardian even dips its bolshy toes into the Siren's waters by mentioning the Shepherd Boy. They also mention the gigs during the 2012 Olympics in London.




Now I don't know exactly why they chose this very, very unsettling headshot for the article but let me just go on record as saying I'm not exactly interpreting it as a propitious omen. That is the picture of a women who looks genuinely terrified. I mean, who the hell signed off on this in the first place?

I believe it was also taken during the filming of the rune-soaked "Tishbite" video, which we looked at before. 


In case you forgot, Tishbite was the familiar name of the Prophet Elijah, whom Christ was said to be an incarnation of by the Apostles. That song was re-released on the Fontana Years box (AKA the Jeff Buckley Years box) earlier this month.

Now, regular readers saw in real time what transpired after this very modest, humble and semi-reclusive woman sang a few trad folk numbers at a tiny club in London in early September. I can't even imagine what might follow in her wake after a world tour.*

The Apocalypse, most probably.




Some of you might also have seen this story, in which Mezzanine, the 1998 album which features a number of Our Lady's prophecies (including "Teardrop"), was encoded into DNA. Mind you, this is a very expensive and time-consuming process. Not something you do on a lark.

Mezzanine certainly has its admirers but it's not like it's Thriller or Rumours or Led Zeppelin IV. So it seems on the face of it to be a very strange choice for such a process.

But not to those who know.


Let's also not forget that Our Lady, Queen Dowager of Sibyls last collaborated with Massive Attack for the Adam Curtis project, which was the prototype for Curtis's MK Ultra ballet. This video was taped two blocks away from Trump Palace the exact same day Trump would first float the idea of seriously running for President during an appearance on Larry King. 

I guess he puts the Trump in Trumpet, eh?

Yeah, all this stuff is pretty crazy, right? Seriously batshit. Rubber-room stuff.

Only except it keeps coming up jacks and aces. 





POSTSCRIPT: The "Clarion Call" was also mentioned in the Gospel According to Saint Matthew. Here's the entire passage, in case anyone needs a refresher:
23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 
26“Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. 
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Note that we see that lightning is associated with Jesus Christ, as are Light and Fire in many other passages. This is a topic for another post but the association of these forces with Lucifer is both completely true and completely not true. Why? 

Because Lucifer is definitively and inarguably NOT Satan and is NOT a Fallen Angel or even a tinfoil-chewingly terrible TV show.

Lucifer is not even a name. It's a title, specifically a title identified with Jesus Christ-- aka "the Light of the World"-- in Second Peter and twice in the Book of Revelation. Probably other places but maybe they got excised by some MAP monk or whatever back in the Dark Ages.

As we saw before, Lucifer was first identified with Satan by Saint Jerome, who was throwing a downright hissy-fit over a sect of hardline fundamentalist Christians called "the Luciferians." No, seriously. 
I'm sure it all probably had something to do with pale young boys somewhere along the line. And the Lucifer in the KJV Isaiah is unambiguously a human king if you actually read the entire chapter. 

Not news, but humor me, will you already?

So I guess in a way the Christ of the Gnostics (certainly the Gnostic and high initiate star magician who composed The Apocalypse of John) is Lucifer, or more accurately, the Lucifer. But that only means he is the bringer of the Light of salvific knowledge and liberation from depredations of the Demiurge and his dark Archons. Like Neo, only less wooden.

But who cares, right? Well, I bring it up because mulling all of this over has led me to conclude that Jesus Christ was known at least two-thousand years before the whole business with the Manger and all the rest of it. 
And I intend to prove it. 

Why? Because it finally hit me that none of this stuff means anything without the Logos. It's utterly pointless. I reckon Philip K Dick would agree with me, on account of it being his particular writings happening to open my eyes back up (cheers, Horselover; I'll give Discreet Music a spin in your honor).


I mean, I certainly thought so back when the Sibyl first reached into my soul. I was smarter back then, I think. Certainly thinner and better-looking.

Anyway, that post will probably be the one that finally gets me killed but I heard tell Calvary is a pretty damn good hill to die on.  



† Speaking of Joey Smith's legacy, did I ever tell you about the time I was riding my bike down Border Street and saw Marie Osmond strolling about with her husband? I swear, she was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen. She was practically bathed in the light of Kolob itself. 

I mean, I was 12 years old at the time, but still. An absolute goddess.
 
* Remind me to tell you sometime about the whole business with the 1996 Lollapalooza, when the Sibyl actually shared a stage with Chris Cornell and Soundgarden. And oh yeah, Joey Ramone, who actually mocked the Voice of God during his set.

Yeah, that was a really bad idea, Joey.

  1. Reading this article, in particular the part about the DNA encoded spray can version of Mezzanine, reminded me of the, not proven, rumour that Robert Del Naja from Massive Attack is the artist Banksy. Not sure how this assists your quest but if there should be a sudden outburst of stencil-based apocalyptic publicity stunts along the route of the tour then you heard it here first! https://nypost.com/2017/06/22/is-this-british-musician-banksy/

    1. Art world peeps are 99% sure that Del Naja is Banksy. It would seem that Del Naja needed a rebranding for his art career years ago, after dealing with pornography crime allegations. His court case and settlement occurred right before the first appearances of "Banksy". Was the vast media embrace and success of the Banksy phenomenon some kind of payout? I always had the feeling that Del Naja and the Banksy Team cared deeply about wanting his visual street art to be seen on its own merits, he didn't want people to accuse him of being successful only because he is "in Massive Attack", he wanted the street credibility that comes only with anonymity.

    2. I think the DNA spray is pretty much an acknowledgement of the Banksy thing. Ironically, I'm not really a huge Mezzanine fan. I prefer MA's earlier, more soul-oriented stuff and I've never really liked that quasi-falsetto Liz sings in for most of that stuff. The power- musical and otherwise- in her voice is in her mezzo range.

      Delete
    3. It's also probable that for many of his art stunts and happenings, Banksy is actually a team of people. When he did his 2013 New York City visit, he installed 30 artworks over 30 consecutive days, all over the city. Some of the artwork was extremely labor intensive and complicated, like the truck zooming around town with muppet-style animal puppets and puppeteers. The thought that one person is doing all this work adds to his legend, fame, and no doubt auction sales as well.

    herb: and what is to be done, or what has been done, that would assist us humans (and you k-now who you are) against the sorcery of the sOb's, a Hidden religion, 'their' sacrifices and genocide

    *your temporal ambiguity is well suited to such a query; since, as you see my dear herb, the temporal sense 'cast upon' the typical wo/man may have its rationale deep in sorcery, in other words, as the great shaman Knowles intimated, humans (and you k-now who you are) are still under Saturn's spell. Many of 'us' do not understand the flow of human (and you k-now who you are) affairs in quite the same one-thing-after-another type way, but 'we' do k-now the forever 'nOw'*

    Speaking of rituals and sacrifices, let's think back at the very first ritual sacrifice in history (biblical): The story of Cain and Abel.

    The LORD demanded burnt offerings as a sign of submission (apparently even the ultra-cosmic Creator of the Universe has an ego to feed).

    Cain, being a crop farmer, offered his best fruits and vegetables. The LORD was NOT impressed; divine beings want blood, don't ya know?

    Abel, being a sheep farmer, offered his very best spring lambs. The LORD was quite pleased, but Cain was not, he was horrified.

    You see, Cain was the very first VEGAN in history. So he jumped on Abel and beat him to death, screaming out "MEAT IS MURDER! MEAT IS MURDER!"

    A couple lessons to learn here: 1) even the LORD doesn't like vegans, and 2) if you want to please spiritual entities, you gotta give 'em what they don't have: flesh and blood.

    4. The interesting thing about the custom of the animal sacrifice is the fact that it survives in different forms even in the present in the abrahamic religions.
      The most well known case is the islamic custom of Qurbani, the ritual sacrifice of a livestock animal(frequently a ram), done in imitation of the sacrifice made by Abraham/Ibrahim as a substitute of the sacrifice initially requested by Yahweh/Allah(that of Abraham's son, Isaac).

      But the custom of animal sacrifice is preserved, in some unofficial forms, in some branches of christianity also.
      I'm eastern european and in my country, in the rural parts of it mostly, there is still practiced the old custom of sacrificing a lamb for Easter and a pig for Christmas. Officially the church doesn't recognize these actions as proper religious rituals and the actual killing is traditionally made by the owners of the livestock. But in that actual traditional practice, for example, after the pig is killed a part of the meat and of the other byproducts(skin, lard, organs etc.) are often sent as a kind of offering to the local orthodox priest. Even more, some parts are sometimes saved for a later "blessing" in the actual church building and used subsequently for medicinal purposes(ex. the lard, sometimes).

      So, as @blogos mentioned in a previous commentary, El/Yahweh/Allah/God remains even in the present the most well fed entity of them all. He/It is even fed somehow more literally, not just purely spiritually by prayers and the "human whirlwind" in Mecca, but by actual blood and meat in some kind of continuation of the old ways prescribed in the Old Testament. There are literally hundreds of millions of rams, lambs and pigs sacrificed each year in this way in honor of God.

      Delete
    5. Also, in continuation of my previous comment, I should mention the fact that my own grandfather used to raise each year a pig and kill it himself for Christmas(he wasn't very religious, but my grandmother was and she made sure that some customs were observed with that occasion). The lamb for Easter was usually purchased by him already killed because my grandparents didn't raise sheep also.

      And one of the few mementoes of him that I managed to keep in my possession is the big knife that he used yearly to kill the pig. The funny thing is that although the blade is made of low quality steel, it doesn't rust the way it should.. And the knife has also a dark colored handle(not exactly black but close),so I'm wondering if it wouldn't be, in theory, good as a potential grimoiric ritual tool of sorts.. :)

    Yeah, about the whole "Jesus is the LOGOS, the WORD, maybe the METATRON, etc." thing, that's straight-up Mormonism. They believe he's the Devil's older brother, like Thor is to Loki in Marvel Comics or something.*

    *for those who don't know, in Norse mythology, Loki and Thor are NOT related, they simply happened to be friends when they were young. Loki is the son of Ymir, the goddamn CREATOR of the UNIVERSE, the primordial cosmic giant whose body was sacrificed by Odin in order for Yggdrasil (the aryan version of the kabbalistic Tree of Life) to grow from his remains. Loki is the enraged destroyer of worlds who would inevitably bring about Ragnarok, like a really pissed-off Jesus reflected in a dark mirror. Loki even got crucified by Odin for killing Balder (the former god of resurrection) with a spear of mistletoe.

    1. Loki did not "just happen" to be friends with Thor. Loki was the blood brother of Odin. Loki is often called a "trickster" but in the myths he was a fire deity to Thor as storm deity, while Odin was a war deity. A fire god somewhat like Prometheus.

      You might think that Loki was bound for killing Baldur but another look at the poems tells a different story. What triggered the rage of Odin was "Loki's truth telling" when he crashed his party demanding mead. Starting off by telling the gods that Odin had vowed to only drink mead with him he then proceeded to tell very unflattering, but true, stories about all of the gods present. Apart from Thor, who wasn't there and he actually respected.

      Anyway, the story of brothers and betrayal is Loki and Odin, not Thor and Loki.

    2. I should add that I played Mistletoe in sixth grade in the Death of the Sun God, which was about Loki and Balder. I mentioned that some years ago here.

    3. When you get into myth, it's always changing and adding and merging with other myths (from other peoples and regions), and myths have multiple meanings. So Loki is among other things a Trickster god, but then so is Satan, at least in Satan's original incarnation in one of the more profound books of the Bible, the Book of Job. The meaning of Satan as a Trickster god - in Jewish religion/myth - is largely, if not near entirely, overlooked. There are those (as in most everybody) who will say I misunderstand Satan in the Book of Job, that he is an adversary. Sure but he is also a Trickster.

      Delete
    4. Well, look at it this way- in Job Satan is God's prosecutor, right? Well, what do we know about prosecutors? They often lie, they often entrap, they often seduce. Fits all the parts, no?

      Delete
    5. Myths always change. There is no reason to think that even the pre-Christian Norse myths about Loki, of which not much remains, are the original. We know that the largest block of myth was written down much later by a Christian who believed none of it, didn't care that much for the fine details, and mainly wanted to teach people how to write stories in the old language. Then ignoring shoehorned Judaic parallels the original Loki might even be a "blasphemous" version of a foreign heroic god from a neighbouring country. I don't think he appears anywhere outside of Scandinavia although the name suggests a similar linguistic source to light or lucifer. Who can say for sure since the sources are vague and full of many different types of word plays and puns. They just didn't write them for our easy comprehension.

  6. Chris,

    The DNA spray can reminds me of Grant Morrison's series The Invisibles, in which memes (then described as personalities) were available in spray can form. I also recall our Gordon making comment to the effect that we're in a whole new magickal ball game in terms of delivery systems - Doctor Dee didn't have no InterWebs or CRISPR. In a conversation with the kids at Hadean Press they discussed embedding sigils in the HTML code of Web sites. I myself have dabbled a bit in putting code in JPEG images with middling success. If I can do it, imagine what someone with real chops could achieve.

  7. The Orthodox Church is still the direct lineage of Christ unbroken. the Rome/Catholic Church is the lineage of Peter on an antichrist power trip.

    But Christ is supposed to be found in the group of the Church/board of directors rather than any individual. Eg the Orthodox Church is the second coming. He was the first to incorporate and exist as a principality through the unified church. Aka the orthodox lineages of direct transmission. Mount Athos is a very fascinating place to this day. I would check in with them. Not very well known in English speaking countries.

    1. Wow, Chris. Really, just blown away that you mentioned Matthew 24:28-31. For more direct commentary on the actual experience of Matthew 24:29 compare it with James Morgan Pryse’s – The Apocalypse Unsealed (p44)

      “Words can not adequately describe the sensations of the neophyte upon his first experience of the effects produced by this mighty power: it is as if the earth crumbled instantly to nothingness, and sun, moon and stars were swept from the sky, so that he suddenly found himself to be but an unbodied soul alone in the black abyss of empty space, struggling against dread and terror unutterable.”

      “Thus, Ioannes vividly pictures it, in terms of cosmic phenomena, as a seismic cataclysm, seemingly the end of the world. To the neophyte unprepared for this ordeal, failure may mean merely a short period of blank unconsciousness, or it may mean instant death – for this vital electricity has all the destructiveness, when misdirected, of the thunder-bolt.”

      Have you perused this tome Chris? It’s at the top of the heap of stuff I’d encourage you to page through on the most crucial topic of “what does the title of your blog ultimately refer to…”

      https://archive.org/details/cu31924029295289

      Time and again here I get what I need. And before Kent Hamaker III mentioned this title to me back in August – I was completely unawares of Pryse and his seminal work. (And Phil Hine’s on this case too – remember him?) I would also recommend Pryse’s full-on Restored New Testament, The Adorers of Dionysos, and A New Presentation of the Prometheus Bound of Aischylos.

    4. I'm probably being astoundingly dense here, as usual, but I have always assumed that Christ is the main difference between Christians and all the religions/myths that came before. And the evidence is that the Roman Empire eventually got pretty impressed by the Christians, because they all became Christian in the end. If the spirit Christ had been around for a few centuries before, well, why didn't everybody and their mother adopt the religion that went with it a few centuries before? If it really was an impressive thing for the time, surely they would. Unless you are saying it was only impressive given the particular political circumstances of the time, and I don't find that all that believable. Christianity spread and outlasted all the political circumstances that could have made it attractive.

    "Next to Sophia stands a male redeeming divinity. In the true Valentinian system, the Christ is the son of the fallen Sophia, who is thus conceived as an individual. Sophia conceives a passion for the First Father himself, or rather, under pretext of love she seeks to draw near to the unattainable Bythos, the Unknowable, and to comprehend his greatness. She brings forth, through her longing for that higher being, an Aeon who is higher and purer than herself, and at once rises into the celestial worlds. Christ has pity on the abortive substance born of Sophia and gives it essence and form, whereupon Sophia tries to rise again to the Father, but in vain. In the enigmatic figure of Christ we again find hidden the original conception of the Primal Man, who sinks down into matter but rises again.

    In the fully developed Ptolemaean system we find a kindred conception, but with a slight difference. Here Christ and Sophia appear as brother and sister, with Christ representing the higher and Sophia the lower element. When this world has been born from Sophia in consequence of her passion, two Aeons, Nous (mind) and Aletheia (truth), by command of the Father, produce two new Aeons, Christ and the Holy Ghost; these restore order in the Pleroma, and in consequence all Aeons combine their best and most wonderful qualities to produce a new Aeon (Jesus, Logos, Soter, or Christ), the “First Fruits” whom they offer to the Father. And this celestial redeemer-Aeon now enters into a marriage with the fallen Aeon; they are the “bride and bridegroom”. It is boldly stated in the exposition in Hippolytus’ Philosophumena that they produce between them 70 celestial angels.

    This myth can be connected with the historic Jesus of Nazareth by further relating that Christ, having been united to the Sophia, descends into the earthly Jesus, the son of Mary, at his baptism, and becomes the Saviour of men."

    1. Hmm, I don't know about Valentinianism per se. I have my doubts as to how much of what we know about his theology is actually what he taught. It doesn't really jibe with his biography. Valentinianism has always felt to me like proto-Hermeticism or a high pagan Christology. Or even Alice Bailey type theosophy. A lot of stuff commonly grouped as Gnostic does. But again I see Gnosis as a work in progress not a road to Damascus thing.

  12. As a formerly heavily churched and Bible degree holding post-institutional Christian of sorts, I track with and feel in my soul every thread of this post. I agree whole heartily with the assertion by the above Sunner that the Roman church is nothing more than the Western Roman Empire still utilizing a form of religion to continue to control a large swath of the world. The Orthodox Church (which rightly allows it's priests to marry) is the unbroken continuation of the most nearly accurate and purest form of what was the early church. Furthermore, Our Lady's reemergence at this pivotal cross quarter day as a full on and actual SIREN proves your theory of her Sybilhood following all the water destruction events of this Fall. Amazing post!

  13. Chris:

    Interestingly, the recent claim by the bible museum in DC claiming parts of the dead sea scrolls are fakes makes me wonder if the fakes are Enochian works?

    If so, another pc of the puzzle that slides into the truth you are proving about the Logos being much mich older than what we know(?)
    (angels visiting and impregnating women and all of that.)

    Will the concerts of ODLoS be televised, I would wonder, too- and if this is the third Clarion wash in Ipswich, where will be the next? Because the Plan follows a plot, so is the lat/long significant? Is there a light show to go along at dusk? Inquiring minds...

    2. In my opinion, almost all this alleged ancient Gnostic literature is faked like a good joke from the Church for the Sons of Satan. I'd say that 99% of the current as they so call themselves - Gnostic scholars and authors who base their research and lives on these texts have been bamboozled.

      It's rather painful to watch grown men and women who are not Gnostics and claim not to be Gnostics hold Gnostic American Conferences advancing the arts of ancient Gnostic bullshit because just like "All Cretans Were Liars," "All Americans Are Liars."

      Just like Satan is controlled opposition. Think about this statement.

      Imagine if all these Satanists were praying and invoking an ancient entity ie" Satan - Simon Magus who is actually aligned with the Christian Church, Saints and Jesus. Meaning, the very angel they pray to is actually their prosecutor.

      Yeah, as they say, "Hail Satan," but what it means is "Hail the original Gnostics" because God has sounded the trumpet and is sending the Hornets in the nest to raise holy hell with the fallen ones ie: children of the spirit of disobedience grafted onto their DNA.

    Like I said before - it's the cosmic wave/magnetosphere shift nexus that we really have to worry about. And when is that estimated to set in? December 2019. (sings "I can't help sayin' told you so 'n have a nice final...year")

    Oh, and p.s, I know I've said this before - what's more disturbing, that 1996 photo the Guardian is fond of, where Our Beloved is looking "disturbed" but is recognisable, is her usual irresistible self, or the 1987 "has she aged twenty years overnight?" Rockin' On photo? (Or even those two "but who is that?" band pics dubiously dated to 1982)

  16. Ok, I'm slow on the uptake, as usual, but if I understand you correctly, these people (who have connections to transnational governmental structures)are attempting to invoke a "controllable" sort of apocalypse through these musicians, in a manner similar to what was dramatized in the BBC production about the woman who has an archangel "attached" to her?

  17. I think a good argument can be made for the link between Gnosticism & Buddhism; it would appear that they most likely did influence each other over the centuries. Buddhists were said to be present at the library at Alexandria as well. & some believe that Manichaeanism had a part to play in the development of Tantric Buddhism:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhism_and_Gnosticism

    "According to Giuseppe Tucci, Manicheism may have influenced Tantric Buddhism, while Mircea Eliade noted similarities in the symbolism of light and mystic knowledge, predating Manicheism, and possibly going back to an early common Indo-Iranian source. Verardi notes that Manicheism is the prime source for comparisons between Buddhism and Gnosticism, Manicheism representing "the same urban and mercantile ambience of which Buddhism was an expression in India." When the mercantile economy declined, with the decline of the Roman empire, Manicheism lost its support. The Manicheists were hostile to the closed society of farming and landownership, just like the Buddhism conflicted with the "non-urban world controlled by Brahman laymen."

    I'm guessing the earlier common Indo-Iranian source Eliade talked about was Zoroastrianism. It would certainly add up given what we know about it.

    1. … The external universe, according to the Abhidhamma, is an outer refection of the internal cosmos of mind, registering in concrete manifest form the subtle gradation in states of consciousness. This does not mean that the Abhidhamma reduces the outer world to a dimension of mind in the manner of philosophical idealism. The outer world is quite real and possesses objective existence. However, the outer world is always a world apprehended by consciousness, and the type of consciousness determines the nature of the world that appears. Consciousness and the world are mutually dependent and inextricably connected to such an extent that the hierarchical structure of the realms of existence exactly reproduces and corresponds to the hierarchical structure of consciousness.

      Because of this correspondence, each of the two—the objective hierarchy of existence and the inner gradation of consciousness—provides the key to understanding the other. The reason why a living being is reborn into a particular realm is because he has generated, in a previous life, the kamma or volitional force of consciousness that leads to rebirth into that realm, and thus in the final analysis all the realms of existence are formed, fashioned, and sustained by the mental activity of living beings. At the same time these realms provide the stage for consciousness to continue its evolution in a new personality and under a fresh set of circumstances.

    Picked up the first issue of DC's Cursed Comics Cavalcade to see what comics look these days & the 2nd story was a Wonder Woman story entitled "Siren Song." It wasn't about an annoying police car either. Was faithful to the idea that the Siren's Song, while beautiful, was just really bait. And the listener is the carp.

    1. Comparing Mithra and Christ there is more that is different than is the same. If you think that Christianity was something totally unique at that time then it can be shocking to find about it but have you heard of this guy called Gautama Buddha? Also it might be tempting to compare UBIK to the latest Massive Attack wheeze but UBIK was a body spray and the other is paint.
