Knock, Knock. Who's There? It. It Who? It Never Ends.


Well, 'Oumuamua continues to vex star-watchers. The Vegas' mothership anomalous space-projectile seems to behave in very strange ways, leading scientists at Harvard University to conclude that it may in fact be a dislodged solar sail from an extraterrestrial galactic probe.


Ever get the feeling that sciences like astronomy were invented to keep really smart people too busy to cause trouble? Y'know, kinda like Synchromysticism?





So, a solar sail, eh? That would make 'Oumuamua a Starsailor, wouldn't it? I do believe it would.


But check out that "Monterey,"  which is track 3 there on Shepherd Man's Starsailor. What happened on the 3rd of last month in Monterey Bay? I can't be sure but I think a superpod of dolphins may have acted as heralds for a certain unexpectedly momentous event. 


Sadly, they weren't this kind of dolphin. That would have been a bit too on the nose. No pun intended. Don't forget, "Delphi" is derived from dolphin.



Speaking of cetaceans, a star in the constellation of Cetus has been named as one of the possible origin points of the Starsailor there. Not sure if HIP 3757 is in the Whale's Tail, but I certainly wouldn't be surprised if it were, given all the Antarctica excitement lately.

Of course, we all know they originally said the Starsailor came from Lyra but that was probably just a Heaven or Las Vegas gag. Those astronomer types have very dry senses of humor.






There's also talk it may have come from Monoceros, the Unicorn. Which would track with all the unicorn symbolism we're seeing these days. 






That in turn would track with Monoceros' proximity to Betelgeuse, which may or may not be going supernova in the near future. Do note that also in the near future there may well be a sequel to Beetlejuice.





At least according to noted Bene Frasserit Winona Ryder, seen here during what I like to call her "peak pretty era." This photo was taken during her shoplifting trial, when my precious 'Noni was feeling particularly harshed upon by big meanie prosecutors. I wish I'd been there to comfort her.  

I guess I'll have to learn to live with that shame for the rest of my life.





Another candidate for the Starsailor's home base is a star in Tucana, which was named in honor of the toucan, best known for its Froot Loops shilling.


 


However, since artists back in the day had to deal with spotty Internet service, they weren't really too familiar with what toucans (or pretty much anything else) actually looked like. So they settled for drawing any old kind of birds and gave them big beaks. 

So could Sideshow Bob Simon Raymonde be posing in front of a stylized toucan in the only music video that really matters? 

Write your answer in the comments.





And apropos of absolutely nothing (except the ongoing Great Unveiling), a time-lapsed thermal imaging of our old friend Supernova 1987A was released the other day. Apparently this particular form is called a doughnut, for rather obvious reasons.



And in one of those weird flukes of the Flux, today is National Doughnut Day. What are the odds of that, eh? Timing, folks.



And of course, studious Sunners remember that SN1987A is in the Dorado constellation, or if you prefer, the Goldfish Constellation. Hence this little money-shot in the only music video that really matters.





And since I'm waist-deep in Dick these days-- let me rephrase that-- since I've been poring over the Revelations According to Philip the Kindred, I can't help but be struck by the fact that PKD's encounter with the Pink (Opaque) Beam was initiated by the Prophet's chance meeting with a young woman wearing a golden Ichthys.



That in turn led PKD to believe he'd been possessed by the spirit of the Prophet Elijah, who would presage the return of the Logos. Apparently this went on for some time.



And as you all remember Elijah was the Tishbite and the passage in Scripture also happens to mention dew (or dewdrops, if you prefer) because WHEN WILL YOU BELIEVE ALREADY?



Of course "Tishbite" is the first single taken from Milk & Kisses, which is the last testament to date. Note the B-sides off Tishbite Orange were Shepherd Boy-centric as some of you may remember, and prophetic as a matter of course.



And as the Fates would decree, the latest Shepherd Boy incarnation also carried the name of the Tishbite and was born the same year Milk & Kisses was released. His destiny was prophesied exactly 12 years before his death, with the dread oracle men are wont to call "Ivo," but whose actual title was "Peep Bo."




And just in time for Peep Bo's 22nd birthday, legendary filmmaker Terrence Malick announces he plans to make a documentary on the doomed Shepherd Boy's life and death.

Here is Wisdom: Peep Bo's 22nd birthday is also the thirty-fourth anniversary of the release of the song that arguably foretells his destiny.



22÷2=11 --- 34÷2=17







In another tragic sync, Malick is also the writer and director behind Tree of Life...





..starring celebrity Buckleyite Brad Pitt.

Bonus sync: Tree of Life also stars Sean Penn, ex-husband of defrocked Bene Frasserite-turned-celebrity Kabbalist Madonna Louise Ciccone.




Pitt was also tight with Chris Cornell, unsurprisingly.





Now, back to the Horned Christ. It happens that The Daily Mail misdated the unveiling of the Cornell icon, on account of it being The Daily Mail. A helpful reader noted the actual unveiling came on October 7th, which is the feast day of...





And of course, according the pronouncements of the Sibyl...



 

Which just happens to tie in with my recent notion that the Rosary looks not unlike a pretty noose. Have there been any tragedies involving some poor unfortunate hanging themselves with a Rosary? I certainly hope not but do let me know in the comments.





In the meantime, do note that Chris Cornell's final performance was given two miles down the road from Our Lady of the Rosary parish. Coincidentally, certainly.



Kind of like this.





But also note that El-Sibyl-Bet deigned to bless the Horned Christ by appearing upon the very same stage in Kansas City and Roosevelt Island for Lollapalooza 1996. The Twins were personally invited by Metallica and Kirk Hammett introduced them as his "favorite band."

A reader reminded me that some heathen scum assaulted the Sibyl at the Kansas City stop with a ball of filth. If anyone knows has more details about this sacrilege, please share them with rest of the class in the comments. I'd like to scan the search engines and see exactly how this devil was smote for his transgression. I'm sure it was gruesome.

Of course, The Ramones preceded Our Lady and Her Unmercenary Musicians and Soundgarden followed them in KC. Joey Ramone-- surely chemically-impaired at the time-- even stooped to blaspheming against the Voice of God.

As much as I love me some Ramones, I do have to admit that was a terrible move on Joey's part. His always-shaky health took a turn for the insanely worse mere weeks after the event and he'd die at the age of 4:9.

In fact, ALL of the original Ramones are now dead.  

Soundgarden seemed to get caught in the crossfire as well, as History records. They'd announce their initial breakup on 4:9/97, mere weeks before the Sibyl's (and Cornell's) Shepherd Boy swam to the Siren. No small detail there.




Note that aside from the Violaine tint, the Horned Christ icon tries very hard to depict the late rock star in a Jesus Christ Pose...



...though not necessarily the one some might assume.



Also note that the icon is located at the corner of Thomas (Twin) street.



And that not-dissimilar statues are placed in strategic locations in Memphis and Las Vegas.



In fact, the Memphis icon overlooks the monorail under which the Shepherd Boy was taken by the wake.



And by some astonishing coincidence, the Horned Christ icon is also in close proximity to the Seattle Monorail. And Twin Street.

Monorail, Monoceros? You tell me.

Bonus sync: Rail is derived from regula, as is Regulus. Monorail = One Prince?



Incidentally, another martyred Shepherd Boy was in the news*, and his remains have been interred at the WNC, which was once the crown jewel of the Episcopal Church, which in turn was once the crown jewel of the Rockefellers' World Council of Churches. 

Now it's just a very clear and instructive example of the dead burying the dead.

There's so much more in the pipeline-- I'm presently collecting stories for a new PseudoScience Special-- but I didn't want to burden you with too many revelations and auguries.

Well, except for this revelation, speaking of dead Shepherd Boys...





* The attack in question is a book titled, The Book of Matt, by a gay investigative journalist whose work throws the entire narrative of Shepard's death--and the lucrative industry that arose in its wake-- into question.

    If the Flat Earth Theory is closer to the truth than modern dogmatic astronomy (and be honest, you don't know, you've been lied to about practically EVERYTHING your whole life, you KNOW NASA is full of s**t, so maybe our ancestors were right after all), the Bootes Void (if it exists) is simply a literal hole in the firmament, not 350 million light-years across, but merely a few hundred feet across at most, where no stars/luminaries were filled in.

    Unless you want to believe the folks at NASA truly are All-American heroes, that astronomers are as wise as monks in their observatories/monasteries (Charles Fort completely deconstructed the massive fraud that is modern astronomy back in the 1920s), and that the members of secret societies exploiting our world would never, ever lie about out place in the Universe or the very nature of physical reality itself. What if the sky truly IS the limit, turning into a purely spiritual world beyond?

  13. The only intellectual tradition(in the west) that made it through the dark ages was the Bible. We are in West world now. Its all west world. all intellectual traditions are either in opposition to ideas in the bible or built on ideas in the bible.

    It is the entire lens by which we think , no matter if we are thinking satanic, pagan or Jesus Freak. And it links together like this synchro stuff in a mind numbing never ending fractal pattern. Thats just the intellectual code of our society.

    So, no duh, after a bottle neck like that(or salvation point, depending on your position) the whole world is going to be doing synchronicities exactly as they all happen in the bible because that is the mental code that is underneath all the thinking in the modern age. Cant run away from it. The world is based off of that book at a deep code level and you can't really escape it with out starting over. Which is like building your own civilization from scratch but starting at the cellular level.

    1. Actually, this is not true. Hellenism made it through as well and became all the rage, especially in the cloistered communities. Greco-Roman iconography as well as philosophy were nearly revanchist in the Renaissance. Christianity- which is arguably Greek at its core- and Hellenism have coexisted rather comfortably for some time.

    2. Hmm. I perceive a high degree of perspicacity in this post. As a novelist, I have taken great pains to encode particular messages and images that will make the fiction come "alive" in the mind of a reader, and for the plot points to be so vivid, shocking or memorable that they will be burned into the hippocampus and never forgotten. It's easy to understand how that method could work on a much grander scale, and indeed, the Bible and its Hebrew antecedent books "lord" over us all in terms of both the Western canon of philosophical thought, and day-to-day life as well. Bravo.

    7. The Church was the only remaining institution of the western Roman Empire. That much is true.

It kind of turns them on but there is no plot there that makes any sense.

  15. Chris: The first song I heard by Tim Buckley that really stuck with me was "Morning Glory". Interesting, not the usual lyrics; definitely about someone older interacting with someone younger. In light of the recent coming and going of Oumuamua; it seemed to me the lyrics could be about (why not?) humans trying to signal non-human intelligences in the cosmos; and being noticed by one or more non-human ET; but the ET either unable or not interested in pursuing the contact/communication with humanity. So maybe Oumuamua noticed us but went "feh"...here are the lyrics:
    I lit my purest candle close to my….Window, hoping it would catch the eye
    Of any vagabond who passed it by,..And I waited in my fleeting house

    Before he came I felt him drawing near;..As he neared I felt the ancient fear
    That he had come to wound my door and jeer,..And I waited in my fleeting house

    'tell me stories, ' I called to the hobo;..'stories of cold, ' I smiled at the hobo;
    'stories of old, ' I knelt to the hobo;…And he stood before my fleeting house

    'no,' said the hobo, 'no more tales of time;.Don't ask me now to wash away the grime;
    I can't come in 'cause it's too high a climb,.And he walked away from my fleeting house

    'then you be damned! ' I screamed to the hobo;'leave me alone, ' I wept to the hobo;
    'turn into stone, ' I knelt to the hobo;And he walked away from my fleeting house

    "As far as headlines go, it's a doozy. NASA shared an image on Sunday as part of its Astronomy Picture of the Day series and titled it with the whimsical phrase "Flying saucer crash lands in Utah desert."

    If that's as far as you read, then you might think NASA is finally fessing up about aliens visiting Earth. But that's not the case. It's just a fun reference to what the 2004 image actually shows: the remains of the space agency's Genesis mission.

    Genesis launched in 2001 to study the sun. The spacecraft include a sample-return capsule that was shaped a bit like a flying saucer. The capsule crash-landed back on Earth in 2004 when its parachutes failed to open."

  27. A friendly update from your resident diehard science-fiction fan, concerning Oumuamua and the possible places it could come from:

    Constellation Cetus in SF is best known for Tau Ceti, the closest sun-like star to us, that everybody knows is home to the center of just about every fictional Galactic Empire. Tau Ceti is also the closest famous star to the particular star that Oumuamua may have come from (meaning, as we look at it on the sky, not in actual distance - two stars can seem close from here but be plenty of light years apart from each other). Aurora (meaning "Dawn" in Spanish) is the most likely name for a planet in that system. Other names include Constance, Rhys, Tyre, Plateau, Urras, Anarres and Avalon. Special mention given to the Raman Node, the origin of the Rama spacecraft that looks so terribly similar to Oumuamua so far, that was, of course, around Tau Ceti. Also relevant is the UV Ceti binary star, one of the closest stars to the sun that happens to be even a little closer to this place that Oumuamua may have come from. There is a fictional Eldorado Station around UV Ceti.

    Constellation Monoceros has only faint stars and is surrounded by much better known constellations. There isn't a lot to be said about it, except that it's home to the nearest black hole. Oh, and that for some reason the latest director's cut of Blade Runner had plenty of unicorns added to it, which didn't particularly feature before.

    Constellation Tucana has a couple of mentions in SF as the home of Zeta Tucana. Planets Longshadow and Centauri Prime are said to orbit it.

  29. Another thing: the Gaia star name on the original science study matches the first HIP name and is in the Cetus constellation, not in the Tucana constellation. So it could all be a typo in the Universe Guide catalog.

    And for a little intriguing WTF, the original study says that Oumuamua could be coming from two other stars, referred to by their Gaia catalog name. But when you copy the string of numbers into the public Gaia catalog, it comes with nothing. For whatever reason.

  30. Hi Chris: Cream's song "Tales of Brave Ulysses" seems fit to mention. Poem written by Martin Sharp; Eric Clapton and Cream set it to music. A post on Youtube says: “Let's not forget this is the first song Jimi heard a wah pedal on, causing him to get one. First time Jimi played through Marshalls was when he, then unknown, became the only person to ever jam with Cream in 1966 and he plugged into their rig. Cream is why Jimi formed a trio. Plus the only way Chas Chandler convinced Jimi to come to England was fulfilling Jimi's request to meet EC. Playing like this by Eric is why through 1968 he was at least as highly regarded as Jimi.” Mermaids, sirens and color purple all mentioned in lyrics; as well as Aphrodite (but her pearl necklace is not mentioned in lyrics). Lyrics below:

    You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
    But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.
    And the colours of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
    And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses,
    How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
    For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.
    And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise,
    And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
    And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
    Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.
    The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
    And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
    Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell,
    And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands
    With tales of brave Ulysses, how his naked ears were tortured
    By the sirens sweetly singing.
    The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
    And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
