It's the New Zeus Revue, Coming Right at You.



Well, it's been another exciting and fast-paced week, don't you think? 

Having defective brains like mine tends to get one trapped down increasingly-treacherous syncholes with all the symbols and signifiers flying around out there, so I'm going to see if my erudite readers want to have a go at all the most-high weirdness flying around in the Ether... 





I don't want to get too deep into the weeds into the politics of all this-- and I'll thank all my fine commenters not to, either-- since that's a sinkhole all its own. 

But I have been collecting a lot of data that I'm having trouble collating and since so many of my readers are whipsmart as all heck I just thought I'd dump some of this stuff on your lap and see if any significant patterns reveal themselves to you.

I've been trying to trace the Horned and Hidden God's hoofprints in the Borgsong for quite some time now, but given that he's such a syncretic mix of widely varying cultures and figures, that's a lot easier said than done. 

Even so, Horny G. seems to be kind of a thruline in all the big news stories the past week or so, given some of the very obvious symbols connected to his various incarnations such as Zeus and Jupiter Ammon.

So I don't know if I'm in a coma, we all died in 2012, D::Wave just got a fresh freon infusion or what, I just know the auld gods are back and they're hungry. 

So strap on your thinking caps and see what you can make of all this nonsense and tomfoolery...


FOOD OF THE GODS












How then does a protector begin to change into a tyrant? Clearly when he does what the man is said to do in the tale of the Arcadian temple of Lycaean Zeus. . . The tale is that he who has tasted the entrails of a single human victim minced up with the entrails of other victims is destined to become a wolf. . .


And the protector of the people is like him; having a mob entirely at his disposal, he is not restrained from shedding the blood of kinsmen; by the favourite method of false accusation he brings them into court and murders them, making the life of man to disappear, and with unholy tongue and lips tasting the blood of his fellow citizens; some he kills and others he banishes, at the same time hinting at the abolition of debts and partition of lands: and after this, what will be his destiny? - Plato, The Republic
