“As above, so below”
Great American Solar Eclipse above
America crossing Threshold below
“Threshold 618“: As soon as the number was brought to my attention, I knew. It’s where the eclipse peaked in terms of duration on August 21st, Southern Illinois, area code 618. When it’s 6:18, it’s time to wake up. It is the number of the threshold… of reality.
After more than a decade of highlighting it and discussing it in the members area, I’m very familiar with the symbolism of “618“. It signifies interdimensionality (“crossing the threshold”), dream world, underworld, time travel, Deep Impact, Judgment, and other such heavy concepts.
Probably an allusion to the Golden Ratio (0.618 or 1.618) to some degree, the number and its permutations pop up fairly regularly with a surprisingly consistent theme in media, entertainment, world events, or even in everyday life.
In Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines for example “6:18” is specifically mentioned as the time of Judgment Day (A.I.-initiated nuclear holocaust).
In Deep Impact a terminator countdown clock starts from “6:18” (6 hr 18 min) as the astronauts fail to stop an incoming comet from hitting Earth. (Note: “Terminator” is an astronomical term referring to “a moving line that separates the illuminated day side and the dark night side of a planetary body”.)
In the Netflix series Travelers released late 2016…
…time travelers from the future try to prevent an incoming asteroid from hitting Earth, echoing both Terminator & Deep Impact.
As time travelers begin to arrive in the first episode a reversed “6:18” (“8:16”) is displayed on a computer screen along with a reversed “OPEN” sign on the background wall acknowledging the time reversal (also reflecting the idea of traveling back in time).
The story also goes on to involve A.I. (artificial intelligence), echoing Terminator.
The Tunguska event, the largest real life deep impact incident in recorded history, happened in Siberia back in 1908. “1908” is a permutation of “618“.
The second largest real-life Deep Impact event took place much more recently on February 15, 2013 in the city of Chelyabinsk which is also in Russia.
For this one “618” was flashed through Beyonce who performed at the Super Bowl just days before the meteor impact:
[Destiny’s Child/Beyonce released new song
“Nuclear” right before 2013 Super Bowl]
It also came with the exit of the Pope adding a Biblical overtone…
…evoking the “Great Flood“, the ultimate Deep Impact “threshold” event dividing history into the prediluvian age and antediluvian age.
In the Book of Genesis we find the Flood and Noah’s Ark mentioned right around 6:18 (chapter 6 verse 18):
And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth,
to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven;
and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
But with thee will I establish my covenant;
and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons,
and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.
In the Book of Matthew we find the “gates of hell” mentioned in 16:18 (note: 0.618and 1.618 are interchangeable Golden Ratio numbers):
And I [Jesus] say also unto thee, That thou art Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my church;
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
“Gates of hell opening” is essentially synonymous with “crossing the threshold” or interdimensional gateway, i.e. “618“.
For the past year or so Microsoft has been time-stamping their Surface computers with “6:18” in their ads:
[As of August 2017 you can still see all the “6:18″s on
Microsoft’s Surface computer page]
Note the symbolism:
- “Surface” of the earth is the threshold of the underworld/hell and this world
- A natural “gate” is shown in the wallpaper photo
- Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates
All together, “hell gate” is strongly implied.
You could say “gates of hell” are something that opens up during times of great wars. The Great American Solar Eclipse was something of a “World War eclipse“. As I noted in my August 11 article (originally discussed back in June) the last time there was a total solar eclipse specifically on August 21st was back in 1914, only a few months before the start of Word War I.
August 21, 1914 total solar eclipse:
Beginning of World War I (Jul 28, 1914 – Nov 11, 1918)
August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse:
North Korean pushing things toward nuclear war
Incidentally the last time there was a total solar eclipse visible from the entire United States was back in 1918 – a permutation of “1618” (1.618 = golden ratio # = 0.618).
In the same article I pointed out another coincidence that proved chillingly prophetic:
[…] the “war” angle may be more realistic and dire than I thought. Turns out, the last time there was a total solar eclipse on August 21st was all the way back in 1914 […]
There has been one more solar eclipse on August 21 since then, though this one was annular, not total. It was in 1933… The year the Nazis came into power […]
So… Doesn’t look good.
This time, in 2017, the August 21 solar eclipse is decidedly “American”. In 2017 an extremely “unusual” figure […] named Donald Trump came into power in the US in 2017 with enthusiastic support from white nationalists.
So we seem to be looking at three potential scenarios multicontextually suggested for the the second half of 2017 and beyond…
- “Watergate 2”: Exit of Trump a la Watergate but with more chaos & damage
- “Great War”: Big war (WWIII?) involving US
- “Rise of the Beast”: An uncontrollable radical political movement in US opens gates of hell [emphasis added]
Just one or a combination/all of these?
One thing is clear, the Golden Apple of Discord is doing its thing.
Echoes of the Nazis in the US around the time of the eclipse… That’s exactly what transpired in August 2017 via Charlottesville and Trump:
Aug 12, 2017 Charlottesville: far-right crowd with torches
Aug 12 White Nationalist Rally Turns Violent, Prompts State of Emergency
Aug 12 Charlottesville Rally Turns Deadly: One Killed After Car Strikes Crowd
Aug 15 Trump again blames both sides for Charlottesville violence,
draws swift and loud criticism
Aug 16 Fleeing CEOs force Trump to disband his business councils
after president refused to fully condemn racists
Aug 16 US military leaders condemn racism after Charlottesville violence
and Trump’s racially divisive press conference
The violence was bad enough. It got much worse when president Trump doubled down on blaming both sides and seeing “fine people” on both sides – the neo-Nazis and the anti-Nazis. This caused America to panic a little. This was the moment the nation realized – really realized – it had a leader in the White House who shouldn’t be representing America. It sent huge psychological shock waves across the nation. So much so a lot of Americans including some on cable news shows including Fox News started crying or were on the verge of tears (crying here & here & here, stunned & angry). Many Americans could just feel internally the magnitude of just how wrong and dangerous it was. You could almost feel the ground shake under America.
Trump crossed a line that must not be crossed and in doing so he helped push America toward a critical Threshold. Together with the deeply troubling Trump-Russia situation (which will potentially bring about the end of the Trump presidency), the countdown is now on for America to make an existential decision. This is a unique moment in American history as America finds itself in the Hall of Ma’at with Anubis weighing the nation’s heart against the feather of truth, balance and justice. In ancient Egypt this was known as the “weighing of the heart“, a test at the entrance (“threshold”) of the underworld, the realm of the dead ruled by Osiris.
It’s telling that the Great American Eclipse was very ancient Egyptian in various ways…
The eclipse peaked in Southern Illinois/618 also known as “Little Egypt“.
The eclipse took place right in front of the star Regulus known as the heart of the constellation Leo. (So yes, it was a “total eclipse of the heart“.)
Leo has a terrestrial counterpart in the Great Sphinx in Giza guarding the gate of the underworld.
The underworld represented by the whole Giza complex is the realm of Osiris who in the sky is Orion whose “Belt Stars” are mirrored down here on earth by Giza’s three great pyramids per Robert Bauval’s Orion Correlation Theory. The Giza pyramids are in essence the tomb of Osiris, or Rostau in the Duat underworld.
Orion is significant also for being a “torch bearer”. Once a year the Sun lights his torch right around the summer solstice (~June 21)…
…coinciding with Prince William‘s birthday. In fact, there was a solar eclipse on the day he was born, June 21, 1983.
The neo-Nazis and white nationalists in Charlottesville were torch bearers…
[Charlottesville white nationalist marchers Aug 11-12, 2017]
They weren’t alone as this was part of a larger “Lucifer’s Torch” ritual of August 2017triggered by Venus/Lucifer becoming Orion’s “torch” around late July.
(In the past I’ve obliquely identified Prince William with “Lucifer”, most notably when I accurately predicted his engagement to Kate Middleton back in 2011. See my article “Lucifer’s Destiny“.)
Prince William is arguably the most famous/popular prince in the world and it just so happens that the name “Regulus” – Leo’s heart star – means “prince“.
Regulus has a terrestrial counterpart in the form of the “Dream Stele” placed right in front of the Great Sphinx’s chest. Inscribed on its surface is a story of an Egyptian prince…
…who falls asleep in the shadow of the Great Sphinx (why it’s called “Dream Stele”). Here is an excerpt:
Now the statue of the very great Khepri [the Great Sphinx ] rested in this place, great of fame, sacred of respect, the shade of Ra resting on him. Memphis and every city on its two sides came to him, their arms in adoration to his face, bearing great offerings for his Ka. One of these days it happened that prince Thutmose came travelling at the time of midday. He rested in the shadow of this great god. [Sleep and] dream [took possession of him] at the moment the sun was at zenith. Then he found the majesty of this noble god speaking from his own mouth like a father speaks to his son, and saying: “Look at me, observe me, my son Thutmose. I am your father Horemakhet-Khepri-Ra-Atum. I shall give to you the kingship [upon the land before the living]….[Behold, my condition is like one in illness], all [my limbs being ruined]. The sand of the desert, upon which I used to be, (now) confronts me; and it is in order to cause that you do what is in my heart that I have waited.”
The dream world and the number “618” go hand in hand. As I said before, when it’s “6:18” it’s time to wake up. When you wake up, you cross a “dimensional” threshold from dreaming to wakefulness.
It’s the stuff of The Matrix:
Note: Keanu Reeves (“Neo”/main character in The Matrix) has been a prince at least three times in his acting career (in The Prince of Pennsylvania, Little Buddha, and Hamlet where he played Prince Hamlet on stage).
We actually see Neo waking up at “9:18” which is another permutation of “6:18“.
It now makes a lot of multicontextual sense that the “618” region (Southern Illinois) geographically overlaps the New Madrid Seismic Zone responsible for four of the largest North American earthquakes in recorded history. Because “Madrid” is said to mean… “Matrix“.
“New Madrid” is “New Matrix” or “New Dream” since the movie associates dreaming with the “Matrix” (computer simulated world in the story). The most general meaning of “matrix” is also instructive:
matrix – noun – something that constitutes the place or point from which something else originates, takes form, or develops
All put together, “Foundation of a New Dream” or since we are dealing with a very American eclipse, “Foundation of a New American Dream“.
That sounds an awful lot like America crossing a Threshold.
By “Threshold” I’m in part alluding to mankind’s destiny written in the “Time Rivers” (the Nile, the Mississippi, etc.) which appear to say it’s time for the next New World to rise in the 21st century. The current New World cannot simply continue on with inertia. As discussed in some depth in my recent article “Point of Divergence” the 21st century is the end of history, and the fate of America as the current/ending New World is a key ingredient in the trans-dimensional, threshold-crossing “grand finale”. The “New World” torch is about to be passed on to Mars which is the new New World rising on the horizon. It simultaneously signals the end of history, end of linear time, end of reality as we know it.
Not coincidentally America was shaken to its core in the very first year of the 21st century. The WTC Twin Towers standing tall with pride and strength collapsed so quickly and completely it seemed like a nightmarish scene from a movie, outside of reality. It was the ultimate wake-up call. 911 – planetary emergency.
September 11, 2001
The Matrix was released in 1999 right before the start of the 21st century, containing a powerful foreshadowing of 9/11 which everyone seems to have missed:
It even contained a direct reference to the date September 11, which many actually noticed:
“New Matrix” in 2017… “New 9/11” in 2017?
Certainly the eclipse symbolism hints at it. The idea of America crossing a big threshold for the “Foundation of a New American Dream” (New Matrix) implies something momentous, something that doesn’t have to resemble 9/11 but equally if not more consequential. And we may well be in the midst of it right now.
America is in crisis mode as we speak. In a way it’s become chronic but the intensification during August is notable. Aside from North Korea and its nukes, the White House has been the epicenter of a long-duration earthquake violently shaking the foundation of the United States. The future of America – whether it dies or lives on transformed – may well depend on how Trump deals with America and how America deals with this presidency.
America’s heart is on trial in the Hall of Ma’at. The final test has commenced at the gate of the new American dream. Will America be part of the next New World, or will it be blocked from going beyond the edge of time?
The 21st century is the grand finale, of history and time itself. Just as there are borders separating territories, there are temporal borders separating segments in the river of time. The time border coming up in the 21st century is the Big One, the mother of all time borders, the final exam in the school called history. Pass and we enter the New Matrix, fail and get stuck in the same time loop, the Old Matrix. Of all the countless possible temporal locations we somehow managed to be here where it all comes together, or all falls apart. This is the Super Bowl of temporal existence. And somehow we got to play a part in it. Let’s make it count.
