Crocodile Suicides, Alligator Attacks, and 9/11

 by Twilight Language



On the afternoon after September 11, 2014, a woman from Bangkok died by suicide when she jumped into a crocodile pit at Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm. She had carefully removed her shoes before jumping into the water below. The “taking off and neatly placing shoes” behavior has been observed frequently by suicidal individuals jumping from bridges and buildings.

Crocodile Pit Suicides

This Bangkok pit contains hundreds of adult crocodiles, and the Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo houses a reported 100,000 crocodilians. Wanpen Inyai, the 65-year-old depressed woman from Thailand’s Min Buri district, reportedly knew what she was doing, as much as anyone who dies by suicide can.

“A similar incident allegedly took place in September 2012, when a man lodged a complaint with the Crime Suppression Division after his wife went missing. He suspected she jumped into a crocodile pond because she had planned to visit the farm before she disappeared. That case is still a mystery as the crocodile farm has declined to comment,” reported the Bangkok Post.

Ms. Wanpen’s “death mirrored that of a woman who killed herself in 2002 the same way at the same farm, and another suicide reportedly took place a decade before that,” said the BBC.

There, it turns out, have been several suicides by crocodile.

The 2002 story broke on August 11, 2002.

The Indian Express published an account on September 6, 2012, in which the 36-year-old wife of Sunai Jisathra, was seen by workers at this same crocodile farm to have “jumped intentionally” into the crocodile pit. Source.

Weird Universe lists the following compilation of crocodile suicides, with sources:

1990: A woman climbed the fence at the same crocodile farm, Samut Prakarn, and was swarmed by crocs as hundreds of tourists watched in horror. [LA Times]
1994: Following the death of President Felix Houphouet-Boigny of the Ivory Coast, a man declared that without the president life wasn’t worth living and jumped into the crocodile-infested moat outside the presidential palace in Yamoussoukro. Crowds watched for two days as the crocs chewed on his body. [Glasgow Herald]
2002: Again at Thailand’s Samut Prakarn croc farm, a depressed woman waded into the crocodile pit. A spectator later said, “The moment the crocodile grabbed her body, she even hugged onto him. It was horrifying.” [The Nation]
2011: A South-African farm worker, depressed after a fight with his lover, waded into the crocodile-infested Lepelle river. No one saw him actually being eaten, but someone later reported seeing a human leg dangling out of a crocodile’s mouth. [Daily Mail]

There could be many more.

Crocodilians include crocodiles, alligators, and in total, 23 different species. There is only one place in the USA to see all 23 known species – St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park.While extremely rare, near fatal interactions with American crocodiles (Crocodylus acutus) do occur. American crocodiles are dangerous to humans; attacks in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Panama are not unprecedented. In May 2007, two instances occurred within one week of children being attacked and killed by this species—one in Mexico just south of Puerto Vallarta and one in Costa Rica. Even this year, on August 24, 2014, a man and his female companion were swimming in a canal in Gables by the Sea, a community in Coral Gables, Florida, when they were bitten in the shoulder and the hand by an American crocodile.
“Summer of the Gator” – 2001

Youth with trident personifying a thriving new country spears an American alligator on the Washington Monument in Eakins Oval; photographed near the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Cable television has institutionalized “Shark Week,” in which programming and documentaries take the “fear factor” within humans regarding sharks and translate it to the small screen. Of course, it all goes back, during our modern era, to Jaws, for before the successful movie Steven Spielberg made in 1975, there was Peter Benchley’s 1974 book Jaws.They seem to have not discovered “Croc Week,” or “Gator Week,” per se, yet.Beginning in 1976, when the first records in Florida started, fatal alligator attacks have been on the increase. Some occur in the late summer and early fall. For example, on September 28, 1977, George Leonard, 52, was killed by an alligator while swimming in the Peace River Canal, Charlotte County, Florida. On September 10, 1978, Philip Rastrelli, 14, was killed by an alligator while swimming across the Hidden River Canal of Bessie Creek, Martin County, Florida.

But still, shark attacks generally get more attention by the media.

There seemed to be so many shark attacks on humans right after the turn of the century that Timedeclared, in the Northern Hemisphere, at least, that 2001 was experiencing “The Summer of the Shark.”

But there was something more sinister waiting in the wings. First, however, the “Summer of the Gator” was about to happen.
In my earlier twilight language book, The Copycat Effect: How the Media and Popular Culture Trigger the Mayhem in Tomorrow’s Headlines (NY: Simon and Schuster, 2004), I noted:

The summer of 2001 began quietly enough, with local newspapers in Florida talking about some deathly events, which before it was over, had everyone wondering if every lagoon in the Sunshine State was crawling with human-eating alligators. At first, the stories were only of local interest. On May 4, 2001, an 8-foot alligator in a Venice pond killed Samuel Wetmore, 70, near his home in Sarasota County, Florida. On June 23, 2001, little Alexandria Murphy, 2, wandered from her Winter Haven back yard, then was dragged into Lake Cannon in Polk County, Florida, by a 6 1/2-foot gator and killed.

Then all hell broke loose, with the media engaging in epidemic reporting, taking up the thread of ‘gator and crocs as the next big new threat on the horizon. Alligators were popping up everywhere. By the end of that month, I had accounts crossing my desk of out-of-place caimans, alligators, and crocodiles being seen and caught in downstate New Hampshire (a 2.5 ft caiman), Central Park New York City (a 2 ft caiman), and on the same day, June 27, 2001, from Buffalo, New York (a 4 ft alligator caught) and off an island in the middle of the Rhine River, Germany (a 5 ft “crocodile” sighted but not caught).

The alligator attacks concentrated in Florida, however. On Sunday, July 1, 2001, a human arm that “appeared to have been bitten” off by an alligator, was found in a canal west of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The rest of the body could not be found. A sort of high sad comedy was reached when the Florida papers published this kind of remark from a member of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department: “We’re sure if they survived and they’re missing a right arm, they would have come forward by now. Detectives have no idea what happened with this body part, whether it was some sort of accident and the person was eaten by an alligator and this is what’s left.”

During the next week in July, echoes of the Florida ‘gators were heard in the Midwest again. Authorities were reporting the sightings of three alligators near Andrews, Indiana, in the Wabash River close to the Highway 105 bridge. No one was hurt but armed officers were trying to locate the critters.

Back in Florida, Tammy Woehle, 22, was out walking her dog, Lady, before dark, on Big Talbot Island, near Jacksonville, when an 8-foot-long alligator attacked her, according to a report from July 9, 2001. The gator grabbed and ripped part of the muscle out her leg, and pulled her to the ground. The news accounts almost made you feel the gator was a sneaky bastard because it crept up to her as she stood on a sandy beach, away from the water’s edge and away from high grass. She escaped with a six-inch wound on her thigh. Before the attack, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission had held a news conference to calm the public. They had noted that the seven alligator attacks in Florida in 2001 were slightly below average. Talk about bad public relations timing. The media would have nothing to do with it. The Woehle attack was widely reported, and it was clear to the public, from what they were hearing in the press, this was a dangerous summer. Then drumbeats announced that a much more sinister danger was lurking just offshore.

A few pages later, I wrote:

Ellen Steele, 81, heard the screams of her 81-year-old husband Robert on September 11, 2001, and couldn’t do anything to save him. But most people never heard about Robert, and how an 11-foot-long alligator near Sanibel, Florida, fatally attacked him as he walked his dog that day. There was something much larger on the media horizon that day. On September 11, 2001, four jet airliners, with Flight 11 being the first, were involved in the largest single homicidal-suicidal effort in history to bring bloodshed, death, and terror to the core of American society.

The Southeastern Outdoors Florida fatal alligator attacks site gives Mr. Steele a different age:

Sanibel, Florida – September 11th 2001, 82 year old Robert Steele was attacked and killed while walking his dog on a trail between two wetland areas in the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge. FWC officers later killed a 10’9″ and 6′ alligator.

The State of Florida’s “Alligator Attacks – Fatal” sheet has this:

Robert Steele, 82, was attacked near his house on Rabbit Road in Sanibel on September 11, 2001. Steele was walking his terrier on a narrow path that ran between two wetland areas close to JM “Ding Darling” National Wildlife Refuge when a 10’9″ gator attacked him and dragged him into the water severing his leg. FWC officers destroyed the gator. Another six-foot alligator was also removed.

Robert Steele is no longer a forgotten deaths of 9/11.

Interesting Facts about 9/11: A New World Order by the Numbers

“We have been conditioned to laugh at conspiracy theories, and few people will risk public ridicule by advocating them. On the other hand, to endorse the accidental view is absurd. Almost all of history is an unbroken trail of one conspiracy after another. Conspiracies are the norm, not the exception.”
–G. Edward Griffin: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (1994)


Most of us already know that 9/11 was an inside job. After all, the laws of physics are not a conspiracy theory, and the science based forensic evidence is overwhelming. Richard Gage told Alex Jones that almost every single architect and engineer realizes it’s obvious when they see his presentation. www.ae911truth.org/. Most people can understand that a monstrous 110 story building does not collapse in 10 seconds. And certainly not twice in one day (3 times including WTC-7). http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2008/09/09/18534585.php

The purpose of this research is to instead examine the historical context of the dates 9 and 11 because it reveals many intriguing parallels and historical precedents: staged events, warfare, intrigue, secret societies, and even remote controlled aircraft. This very suspicious pattern has been explored before, as in Jerry Mazza’s, “9/11’s History of Tragic Events.” Mazza writes, “More likely it [9/11] indicates the “footprint” of some ongoing elitist and corrupting force, organization or intelligence. The obvious ‘ops’ stain of US interference lingers blatantly.”  There is also “9/11: Past and Future,” by David Simpson, and “The Other September 11ths” by Justin Felux.

The attempt here is to collect and verify as many 9/11 parallels as possible and list them all in one place as a source of information for researchers and patriots. And if nothing else, a review of at all the historical precedents reveals that the phony “post 9/11 world” constantly shoved in our face is really nothing new. It’s just the latest fraudulent excuse for tyranny. Simpson writes, “With the passage of time it may come to appear that 9/11 did not blow away our past in an eruption of the unimaginable but that it refigured that past into patterns open to being made into new and often dangerous forms of sense.”

Quick History of the Dates of 9 and 11

9/11/1609 – British navigator Henry Hudson sails along the shores of Manhattan Island, the eventual location of the twin towers, claiming it all in the name of his international banking masters, the same elite who would declare open war on America 392 years later to the day.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan

9/11/1773 – First grand master of the freemasons of Pennsylvania, grand master of the French Lodge of the 9 Sisters, and member of the elite Hellfire Club, Benjamin Franklin publishes the satirical essay, “Rules by Which a Great Empire May be Reduced to a Small One.” http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Rules_By_Which_A_Great_Empire_May_Be_Reduced_To_A_Small_One

9/11/1776 – A bilateral peace conference on Staten Island fails to stop the nascent American Revolution against the British empire. Lord Richard Howe demands the cancellation of the Declaration of Independence. American officials including Benjamin Franklin refuse to comply and negotiations fall apart. http://www.mrnussbaum.com/history/revolution.htm

9/11/1777 – Exactly one year later, the Battle of Brandywine in Pennsylvania resulted in a decisive victory for the British leaving the capital of the revolution, Philadelphia, undefended. It’s estimated that Washington’s army lost between 1,200 and 1,300 patriots.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Brandywine

9/11/1786 – The Convention of Annapolis opens. It was the first gathering of the Constitutional Convention which led to the adoption of the US Constitution (and the establishment of the federal government) in 1787. In a way, it was the birthday of the United States as we know it. Is it possible that 9/11/2001 was the work of an enemy who is systematically killing the United States as we know it? Look around you. Our constitutional rights are being destroyed, our economy is being deliberately imploded, and our borders dissolved, all while a police state grid is being built up around us. All we have to do to stop all of this insanity is to return to a constitutional government and demand our God-given inalienable rights guaranteed by the highest law of the land, the US Constitution.

9/11/1789 – Alexander Hamilton is appointed the first United States Secretary of the Treasury. Hamilton established a private company that was supposed to improve the water supply of Manhattan, but the surplus capital was really used to establish the Bank of Manhattan. Later renamed the Bank of New York, Hamilton’s scheme was eventually appointed to be first official bank of the United States. In 1913, it was declared the primary central bank of the notorious Federal Reserve System that has always been underwritten by the Bank of England. For decades, American students have been swindled into buying the supposed benefits of the central banking scheme espoused in Hamilton’s Federalist Papers. Hamilton’s Federalist Paper #84 even argues against the Bill of Rights. To this day, Wikipedia offers the ridiculous explanation that Hamilton simply feared that a permanent Bill of Rights might later be used by tyrants to claim those were the only rights citizens had, thereby potentially endangering our freedoms. Give me a break! Hamilton’s central bank included such ‘citizen benefits’ as: the taxpayer fuding of war bonds, the assumption of state debts by the federal government, and a mechanism for collecting federal taxes. A pamphlet published in 1797 linked Hamilton to a scheme to illegally manipulate federal securities. Some things never change.

9/11/1814 – The climax of the Battle of Plattsburgh proves a major United States victory against continued British meddling during the War of 1812. On the morning of 9/11/14, British squadrons attack US ships on Lake Champlain but are soundly defeated. Many consider it the decisive battle of the War of 1812. Plattsburgh stopped the British offensive in its tracks and denied the insurgents any advantage they might use to demand more territory in the Treaty of Ghent. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Plattsburgh

9/11/1891 – The Rothschild controlled Jewish Colonization Association is established by Baron Maurice de Hirsch. Designed to facilitate the mass emigration of zionists from Russia and other eastern European countries to North America, including New Jersey, Connecticut, and every province in Canadia. By an agreement with Baron Edmond de Rothschild, the JCA assumed the management of the Rothschild settlements in Palestine 8 years later in 1899. http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=271&letter=J

9/11/1893 – The First World Parliament of Religions begins, where 11 papers are delivered on the subject of Judaism and the National Council of Jewish Women is founded. Ten years earlier in 1883 (“18/83″=9/11), the zionist publication “Jewish World” predicted the universal movement of all religions toward a universal Judaism: “The great Ideal of Judaism is not that Jews shall be allowed to flock together one day in some hole-and-corner fashion…but that the whole world shall be imbued with Jewish teachings, and that in a Universal Brotherhood of Nations – a greater Judaism, in fact – all the separate races and religions shall disappear.” (“The Jewish World” Feb. 9-16, 1883)http://people.bu.edu/wwildman/WeirdWildWeb/courses/mwt/dictionary/mwt_themes_707_worldparliamentofreligions1893.htm

11/11/1918 – The armistice ending World War I is signed at 11:00 AM (“The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.”)http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1B1-355810.html.

9/11/1919 – The U.S. Marines invade Honduras to protect American interests during an election. Spreading democracy the American way.

9/11/1921 – Nahalal, the first moshav (communist settlement) is established in Palestine. According to UNESCO, the UN’s eugenics arm, Nahalal is based on “the work of Marx and Engel in The Communist Manifesto of 1848 and represents ideological-social patterns based on Thomas Moore’s Utopia of 1516”. A major underground weapons cache (“sliq”) was dug there in 1943 under the camouflage of a cesspit for collecting cow urine. The Nahalal sliq was used by Haganah gangsters as a major waypoint for smuggling weapons into Palestine. It was also the childhood home of Moshe Dayan.

9/11/1922 – One year later the League of Nations, the 20th Century elite’s first official attempt to create world government, establishes the The British Mandate of Palestine. The Nakba begins.

9/11/1936 – 32nd president, 33rd degree freemason, and notorious Illuminati frontman, Franklin Delano Roosevelt dedicates the ‘great work’ of Hoover Dam, the hubristic monument to the occult elite’s desire to totally dominate nature and mankind. Built by the war profiteering Bilderberger contstruction company Bechtel, the dam is named after Herbert Hoover (CFR), a director of Bohemian Grove. Theodore Steinberg noted with reference to the Hoover Dam, “It was supposed to signify greatness, power and domination. It was planned that way.” Similarly, FDR is said to have coined the phrase, “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way.” Consider for a moment the staggering number of supposed ‘accidents’ and coincidences in the official fable of 9/11. And then, when we realize all the inexplicable historical parallels along the date 9/11, we shudder to realize the conspiracy is much larger than just the 2001 event itself. “The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.” – J. Edgar Hoover

9/11/1940 – The Nederlandsche SS (the Dutch SS) was established in Holland by Nazi collaborators. Nazi prince Bernhard of the Netherlands must have cherished the date so much that exactly 21 years later he founded the nefarious global eugenics operation run by the elites known to us ‘useless eaters’ as the World Wildlife Fund (‘WWF’) on 9/11/1961.

9/11/1941 – The U.S. Navy is ordered to attack German U-boats. FDR, issues shoot-on-sight orders following the USS Greer incident 7 days earlier. The Greer incident was most likely another false flag “sea story” used to manufacture consent among the American people for joining the war. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Greer_(DD-145)  Indeed, documents have revealed that FDR actively conspired with Churchill to instigate the war, and US ambassador to the UK, Joseph Kennedy (JFK’s father) later said that he opposed the war because he knew it had been manipulated to happen.  David Icke, And the truth shall set you free, 21st century edition (2004) p107.

9/11/1941 – The same day–60 years to the day before the false flag attacks of 9/11/2001–the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the Pentagon takes place. 60 years and 1 month later, Dubya’s speechwriter had him say he was aware of the historical parallel. At 11:55 AM on 10/11/2001, Bush announces at the Pentagon: “The attack on the Pentagon, on that day, was more symbolic than they [‘the evildoers’] knew. It was on another September 11th, September 11th, 1941, that construction on this building first began. America was just then awakening to another menace: The Nazi terror in Europe.” It’s an interesting statement considering that Bush’s father Prescott was a high level Nazi agent.http://www.september11news.com/PresidentBushPentagon.htm

9/11/1941 – In a courageous speech given to an initially hostile crowd in Des Moines, Iowa, Charles Lindberg publicly accuses the British, the Roosevelt administration, and international zionists of deliberately conspiring to drive the American public towards war with Germany. He accuses the globalist cabal of slandering the character of anyone who exposes their agenda by labeling them an anti-semite. Like ghouls exposed to sunlight, hecklers wail and gnash their teeth, but Lindberg presses on and eventually wins over the majority of the crowd, garnering cheers at the end. “The danger of the Roosevelt administration lies in its subterfuge,” he says. “While they have promised us peace, they have led us to war, heedless of the platform for which they were elected.” Sound familiar?

9/10-11 /1942 – The Royal Air Force devastates Dusseldorf with 100,000 bombs. 911 civillian houses are reported destroyed.

9/10-11 /1942 – Thousands of victims are rounded up in Antwerp and sent to a camp in Mechelen, Belgium, then later into labor camps in northern France. http://www.holocaustchronicle.org/staticpages/365.html

9/11/1942 – According to the Churchill Society of London, a German U-boat sinks an Italian POW ship “by accident,” killing all 1,800 (1+8=9) prisoners of war. http://www.churchill-society-london.org.uk/1942SOND.html.

9/11/1942 – 511 Jews are captured in Northern France near Lille.

9/11/1942 – A resistance is led against the Nazis by Moses Glazer and Asher Shapira in Stolin, Belorussia.

9/11/1942 – An Argentine Jew deported to Treblinka stabs an SS officer in defiance with a penknife, killing the Nazi bastard. He and 150 other inmates are summarily executed. http://www.holocaustchronicle.org/staticpages/365.html

9/11/1942 – 5,000 refugees are deported from the Warsaw ghettoes to Treblinka concentration camp. German SS troops liquidate the ghettoes with flame throwers and grenades, killing thousands of civilians and leaving many more homeless and destitute.

9/9/1943 – The USS Rowan (DD-405) (4+5=9) enters the Gulf of Salerno and is sunk 2 days later on 9/11/1943. Shortly after midnight the convoy was attacked by German E-boats just hours after leaving Salerno harbour. Wikipedia lists the date of the ship’s “fate” as Sept. 10, but the text reveals that the attack actually took place during the early morning hours of 9/11. If the rest of the Wiki page is reliable, we’re told the ship sunk in only 40 seconds, killing 202 of her crew of 273. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Rowan_(DD-405)

9/11/1943 – 1,000 refugees discovered hiding in the bombed-out ghetto of Przemysl, Poland are murdered.

9/11/1943 – The Nazis commence genocide operations in the Ghettos of Minsk, Belorussia. Over a period of 3 days, the entire town is liquidated, killing thousands of civililians and leaving many thousands more homeless and destitute.

9/11/1944 – The Royal Air Force totally firebombs the beautiful forest-bound city of Darmstadt dating back to the middle ages. The ensuing firestorm kills an estimated 12,300 civilians. According to the RAF, the bombing of Darmstadt was “an outstandingly accurate and concentrated raid on an intact city of 120,000 people. A fierce fire area was created in the centre and in the districts immediately south and east of the centre. Property damage in this area was almost complete. Casualties were very heavy.” 12,300 civilians are killed and 66,000 more rendered homeless and destitute. A minimum of 10% of Darmstadt’s total population dead and a Russian POW camp totally destroyed, despite the total absence of any wartime industries. Cheers, mate. What a spanking success. Today, Darmstadt is home to the US Army’s 66th Military Intelligence Group and the 233d Base Support Battalion.

9/11/1959 – After having served in Marine Air Group 11, US intelligence asset and unfortunate patsy for the CIA/Mossad backed JFK assasination, Lee Harvey Oswald is released from active duty in the Marine Corps. He received a hardship discharge in record time by falsely claiming he needed to care for his injured mother, though he provided no supporting medical evidence. He was released without question less than a month later and left the country immediately. http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/parnell/chrono.htm

9/11/1961 – Operating as a tax free NGO that actually conspires towards global eugenics and total environmental control, the cute-and-cuddly World Wildlife Fund (“WWF”) is founded by such luminaries as Julian Huxley and prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. The “prince” was supposedly born on 6/29/1911, and was a high level Nazi agent who spied for the notorious IG Farben and was a member of both the Surmabteilung (SA) and the Schutzstaffel (SS). Bernhard is rumored to have offered Hitler his wholehearted support if Hitler would in turn endorse him as the “Stadtholder” of the German-occupied Netherlands. Somehow, Bernhard then went on to log 1,000 flight-hours with the 322 squadron of the RAF and was even appointed wing commander! I wonder if the RAF 322 logo was a skull and bones? The Nazi double agent was finally forced to step down as the first head of the WWF in 1976 when it was revealed that he had demanded at least $1.1 million in bribes from Lockheed in order to influence the Dutch government to purchase the company’s aircraft and weapons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernhard_of_Lippe-Biesterfeld

9/11/1965 – The 1st Cavalry Division of the United States Army arrives in Vietnam, including the 24th PSYOP Detachment which was formed from personnel of the 1st and 13th PSYOP Battalion assigned to the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center at Fort Bragg.   http://www.psywarrior.com/VietnamCommanders.html

9/11/1970 – 88 hostages from the Dawson’s Field hijackings are released. Part of the “Black September” operations in which 11 Israeli olympic athletes were murdered, the Dawson’s Field hijackings involved four jet aircraft bound for New York City that were supposedly highjacked by a shadowy ‘Arab extremist’ group. Sound familiar?

Dawson’s Field Highjackings:
TWA Flight 741     144passengers  10crew  154total
El Al Flight 219     138passengers   10crew  148total
Pan Am Flight 93  145passengers   10crew  153total
BOAC Flight 775   136passengers   17crew  153total

According to official accounts, two of the planes were taken to a former RAF airstrip in the middle of the Jordanian desert known as Dawson’s Field. A third was suppsedly blown up in Cairo after the passengers and crew were released. The fourth hijack failed when both agents were overpowered on the plane. One was killed and the other was arrested. The plane was then diverted to Heathrow. Look, the idea that El Al, the notorious airline created and operated by Israeli intelligence, could have a plane hijacked by a group of “radical Arabs” is simply ridiculous. Of course a much more likely explanation is that the Mossad, whose own motto is “By way of deception ye shall wage war” was involved in a false-flag event of some kind. And what are the odds that a Flight 93 would be involved in both Dawson’s Field and 9/11 hijacking exactly 31 years later??? The same day in 1970, President Nixon comes the the resuce and issues a presidential statement ordering the immediate launch of 100 federal agents to serve as air marshals on U.S. flights. Problem. Reaction. Solution.

9/11/1973 – A CIA backed coup in Chile headed by general Augusto Pinochet overthrows the democratically elected president, Salvador Allende who was killed in a bomb attack. The CIA puppet Pinochet and his brutal dictatorship remain in power for 16 years. Spreading democracy the American way. Recently declassified FBI documents regarding Operation Condor reveal the CIA assistance of state-sponsored terrorism by the Chilean secret police. “The documents, including summaries of prison letters written by agent Michael Townley, provide evidence on the carbombing assassination of Orlando Letelier and Ronni Moffitt in Washington D.C., and the murder of Chilean General Carlos Prats and his wife in Buenos Aires, among other operations.” http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB8/nsaebb8i.htm

Not surprisingly, the Chilean coup was engineered by Henry Kissinger (appointed by Bush as first director of the sham 9/11 Commission) as well as Richard Nixon and CIA director Richard (Dick) Helms. Their involvement was declassified 25 years later on 9/11/1998. A year before the coup, the CIA organized and provacateured a wave of confrontational labor strikes called the “September Plan.”

9/5–9/17/1978 – During a 13 day period president Jimmy Carter, president Sadat of Egypt, and prime minister Begin of Israel meet at camp David and agree on a framework for a comprehensive peace in the Middle East. Cyrus Vance (Secretary of State) and Zbigniew Brzezinski (National Security Adviser, CFR, Bilderberg, Tril.) acted as Carter’s handlers at Camp David. The timeline of the talks provided by the Jimmy Carter Library describe the events of each day except 9/11, to which no reference is made. Was 9/11 a day of super-secret talks? We may never know, but one thing is for certain, this supposed “framework for peace” was no more effective in the long run than any other roadmap towards peace when Israel is involved. Funny how they just seem to keep getting into wars with everybody.

9/11/1982 – Ariel Sharon announces that “2,000 terrorists” remain in the decimated Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila, and that he’ll have to “clean them out.” The next day, after having basically aided the Israeli occupation of west Beirut, impotent UN forces begin to withdraw. Three days later, Christian Palestinian leader Bashir Gemayel is assassinated by a remote-controlled bomb at his headquarters. Although Israel is the obvious suspect, Ariel Sharon tells Gemayel’s militias that Israel has proof other Palestinians are responsible. The bombing was actually carried out by Habib Chartouni, an agent of Syrian Intelligence. By Sept 16, Israeli troops begin encircling the Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila and allow revenge-seeking Christian militiamen access to the surrounding camps and they slaughter hundreds of civilians. The next month, the US Marine barracks in Beirut are blown up, supposedly by a suicide bomber. http://lawrenceofcyberia.blogs.com/news/2004/09/tainted_by_terr.html

9/11/1987 – “I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 11, 1987, as 9/11 Emergency Number Day. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9-1-1

9/11/1990 – At exactly 9:09 PM, GHW Bush announces to Congress, “Out of these troubled times [i.e. the coming war on Iraq] a New World Order can emerge.” Exactly 11 years later, towers 1, 2, and 7 collapse at near free-fall speed into their own footprints.

9/11/1994 – Veteran US Army pilot Frank Eugene Corder supposedly steals a Cessna plane at approximately 11 pm, crashing it into the White House at 3 am. According to the laughable official account, Corder managed to steal a plane, take off undetected, evade all radar detection until the last seconds, and crash into the White House in the middle of the night, all while being extremely intoxicated and high on crack coccaine. “The flight path of Corder, while known and verified, is not being detailed for security reasons” says the mockingbird media. Rumors are then circulated among reporters that anti-aircraft measures are installed to protect against a similar attack. The controlled media attacks Corder’s character and offers no operational details such as radio or transponder data. Corder’s body was so mangled that it prevented a forensic explanation. No witnesses saw him steal the plane and at no time did he make radio contact with the control tower or anyone else for that matter. He could easily have been dead before the plane even took off. “For years I have thought a terrorist suicide pilot could readily divert his flight from an approach to Washington to blow up the White House,” Richard (“Dick”) Helms, Director, CIA 1966-1972. I guess you could say Condo-lie-za Rice really didn’t know Dick when she claimed no one had ever conceived of terrorizing people by crashing planes into buildings before.

A more likely explanation is that the aircraft was remote-controlled, just like 7 years later on 9/11/2001. “Immediately after the crash of Corder’s plane, intelligence sources concurred that the flight was most probably flown as a proof of concept, designed to thoroughly test Washington’s air defenses and expose possible flaws. If the Cessna 150L managed to strike the White House wall directly, the concept would be considered proven, perhaps paving the way for later attacks using heavier aircraft loaded with munitions. In this respect the flight was a complete success.”http://www.geocities.com/roboplanes/cessna.html

9/11/1997 – Securacom, the firm run by by Bush’s brother Marvin and which held the security contracts with both Silverstein’s trade center and American Airlines on the attacks of  9/11, files its S1-A with the SEC, announcing its intention to go public. Marvin Bush served on the Securacom board of directors from 1993 to 1999. ”When Securacom went public on September 11, 1997, its prospectus for the Initial Public Offering prominently featured photographs of its clients the World Trade Center and Dulles airport, with a client list that included United Airlines and Los Alamos National Laboratories.”

9/11/1998 – “Independent counsel” Kenneth Starr sends a report to congress listing 11 possible impeachable offenses accusing Bill Clinton in the suspected Mossad sting and national disgrace known as the Monica Lewinsky scandal. She even wore a blue dress. Earlier in the year, Clinton had resisted neo-con letters and policy papers calling for preemptive attacks in the middle east. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article17194.htm

The week of Sept 11, 1999 – A suspicious series of bombings at Russian apartment buildings terrorizes the citizens of Moscow and two other Russian cities http://eng.terror99.ru/explosions/

9/11/2000 – The World Economic Forum Opens In Melbourne, Australia. A group called “s11.org” organizes the protests that day that become violent, causing three waves of riot police to enter the crowd and swing their batons indiscriminately, some riding horses into the crowd. Obviously, the characters s11 resemble 911, and there is some question as to whether this event was provacateured by government agents.http://njhurst.com/photos/s11/

6 weeks before 9/11 – The phlegm gurgling human cockroach Larry Silverstein completes the largest real estate transaction in New York history by leasing the asbestos riddled and already condemned World Trade Center for a period of 99 years. He then immediately overinsures the complex for $3.6 billion dollars (3+6=9). Prior to his ownership of WTC, Silverstein was a strip club owner who operated a club in Brooklyn with the very intersting name of Runway 99. How you go from being a strip club owner to owning the World Trade Center is anyone’s guess. According to Christopher Bollyn, Silverstein was a defendant in a lawsuit in which BIll Clinton was also named involving drug smuggling via Minah, Arkansas. (Christopher Bollyn on the radio w/ the now discredited DB Smith on 5/11/2006). Formerly owned by the city’s port authority, the trade center didn’t become private property until July 26, 2001. Lewis Eisenberg (former head of the religious extremist group, United Jewish Appeal) was the head of the NY and NJ port authority at the time. He oversaw the negotiations that delivered the WTC into the greasy hands of Larry “pull it” Silverstein.

9/10/2001 – The day before the attacks, Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert makes a secret visit to New York City. According to Christopher Bollyn, Yitzhak Rabin was in Dallas when JFK was shot, and Benjamin Netanyahu was in London during the highly suspicious 7/7 bombings in 2005.http://www.x-force.be/mbollyn%20ehud%20olmert.html

9/10/2001 – As part of Operation Tripod II, all operations inside WTC-7 are moved to traliers stationed on a nearby pier in preparation for a bioterrorism exercise. Designed to be a fire-proof, bomb-proof emergency bunker, WTC-7 was a 47-story building (4+7=11) that contained DOD offices, SEC and IRS offices, the largest CIA station outside of D.C, and and the Secret Service’s largest field office. Naturally, Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management was located on the 23rd floor.

9/10/2001 – The day before the false flag attack, two-time Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld (CFR, Bilderberg, Trilateral) announces that the Pentagon cannot account for $2.3 trillion of ‘Loose Change’ in taxpayer funds. A billion is the number of seconds in 30 years. A trillion dollars is a thousand times more than that. Referring to the Pentagon’s sprawling bureaucracy that supposedly lost the money by oversight, Rumsfeld uses eerily threatening language: “The enemy is closer to home” he hisses to reporters, “It’s a matter of life and death.” The very next day, news of the greatest swindle of all time is buried beneath the rubble of the false flag terrorist attack.

The taxpayers’ money disappeared on the watch of Rabbi Dov Zakheim (CFR), appointed Pentagon Comptroller a few months earlier on May 4, 2001. Dubbed “the bionic zionist” by Jerry Mazza, Zakheim is an Israeli citizen and co-signer of the PNAC document, “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” that called for a new Pearl Harbor. In 2001, Zakheim just happened to be the CEO of a high tech aircract remote control company, SPS international. It was Zakheim’s subsidiary of SPS, Tridata Corporation, that investigated the first false-flag bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993, as well as the highly suspicious Columbine massacre and Virginia Tech shootings. What a mensch.

9/11/2001 – The day after the taxpayer’s money disappeared, the newly rennovated accounting and bookeeping wings of the Pentagon are destroyed, apparently by a remote-controlled aircraft of some kind. http://www.geocities.com/killtown/

9/11/2001 – John O’Neil’s first day on the job as security director at the WTC.

9/11/2001 – Securacom’s contract with the the World Trade Center expires.

9/11/2001 – Re-election day for Rudolf Giuliani.

After the false flag event, the numbers 9 and 11 continue to appear in controlled public events and media

3/11/2002 – (the 11th week of the year) marks 6 months since the attack. New York City lights the sky with 88 (multiple of 11) light beams (2 sets of 44 to represent each tower) into the sky from the World Trade Center. CNN publishes a story describing the “Tribute in Light” ceremony in which the lights will remain lit from dusk until 11 p.m. for 32 days near “Ground Zero.” The same day, GW Bush gives a 19-minute speech speech to 1,300 people in which he says that 9/11 helped create a “New World Order” in which “many old conflicts will appear in a new light.” Instead of closing his speech with the traditional “God bless America,” Bush said, “May God bless our coalition.” The next morning, on 3/12/2002, the remains of 11 FDNY firemen were supposedly recovered from Ground Zero.  http://archives.cnn.com/2002/US/03/11/nation.remembers/

9/11/2002 – Exactly one year after 9/11, the winning numbers drawn in the New York State Lottery for September 11, 2002 were: 9,1,1. “The numbers were picked in the standard random fashion using all the same protocols,” said Lottery spokeswoman Carolyn Hapeman. “It’s just the way the numbers came up.” Right. And I’m a Chinese jet pilot.

9/11/2003 – Anna Lindh, former Chairman of the Council of the European Union and outspoken critic of Israel, dies from stab wounds she received the day before. Lindh negotiated an agreement that averted a civil war in Boznia/Herzogovina, she criticised the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and she advocated greater respect for international law and human rights in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In a January 30, 2003 speech, she called on Israel to “end the occupation, give up settlements, and agree on a pragmatic solution to Jerusalem” and on the Palestinians to “do everything in their power to stop the terrorist acts, and take legal measures against those responsible” and to “produce reform, for security, but also for democracy and human rights.”

9/11/2003 – The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety goes into effect. It contains 27 principles (2+7=9). The globalist protocol is supposedly designed to regulate the “transboundary movement, transit, handling and use” of all genetically modified organisms worldwide. Don’t worry, the Nazi prince’s globalist buddies will protect us from the bizarre genetic mutations they are releasing at this very moment. I’m sure the selection of 9/11 as the date here is just an unfortunate oversight on behalf of the “authorities.” Meanwhile, a genetic freakshow of GMO mutations spread like viruses throughout the world’s air, water, and food supply.

9/11/2004 – Shortly after 11:00 am, a Greek army helicopter vanishes from radar screens and crashes into the Agean Sea, killing Peter VII of Alexandria, the second highest patriarch in the Greek Orthodox church and 16 others, including bishops of the Greek Orthodox church of Alexandria and other clerics, such as the Bishop Madagascar. In the previous year of 2003, the Greek Orthodox and other Orthodox churches had literally excommunicated Bush, Rumsfeld, Tony Blair, and Jack Straw from ever again entering one of the holiest Christian shrines, the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, believed to be the birthplace of Christ. During a massive protest in front of the shrine organized by various Orthodox institutions in March 2003, Father Panaritius declared: “They are war criminals and murderers of children. The Church of the Nativity decided to ban them access into the holy shrine forever.” I wonder if Father Panaritius was on board the helicopter when it crashed.

9/11/2005 – A ceremony is held lowering the last Israeli flag at the IDF’s Gaza Strip divisional headquarters. According to wikipedia, IDF soldiers pull out during the following hours, “completing Israel’s disengagement from the Gaza strip.” Serenity now.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel’s_unilateral_disengagement_plan

10/11/2006 – One month after the 5th anniversary of 9/11, a plane supposedly piloted by Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle and his flight instructor crashes into an apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The address is 524 East 72nd Street (5+2+4=11) (7+2=9).  Official stories offer no explanation of how the crash happened or any mention of radio, transponder, or black box data. CNN reports that that his passport was found in the street. Sure, just like the magical passport of Mohammad Atta, supposedly found by the indicted felon Bernard Kerik, Giuliani’s police commissioner who spent most of his time after the attacks fornicating with prostitutes in a love shack overlooking ground zero. The controlled press made no mention why Lidel was carrying a passport to fly around New York City, or how it might have survived the crash and fire undamaged, like Atta’s apparently thermate-proof passport. It’s interesting to note that Lidel’s plane (which was probably remote-controlled) just happened to demolish the apartment of Kathleen Caronna, a Manhattan woman who had sued the Giuliani administration in the State Supreme Court of Manhattan for nearly $400 million after being put in a coma for a month and having her skull crushed when the Woody Woodpecker balloon knocked part of a lamp post onto her head during the 1997 Thanksgiving Day parade. You can’t make this stuff up, folks.

9/11/2007 – In an escalation of tensions with the west that continues today, Russia detonates the largest conventional weapon ever created, the Father of all Bombs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FOAB

1/8/2008 – On the first day of the 11th month in the Hebrew calendar, exactly 40 years after the taking of Jerusalem, President Bush revisits the Church of the Nativity. I guess somebody doesn’t like being told where he can and cannot visit.

1/11/2008 – 3 days later, the highest 3 Rabbis in the world present the “Scroll of Bush,” declaring GW Bush to be none other than the demon “Gog” prophesied in Ezekial: 38 (3+8=11). Bush, Olmert, and Blair are then taken to an underground cave for a ritual mass.


So what is a sensible person to think about about all these supposed numeric and historical coincidences? What are the odds of all this happening just by accident? Probably about as remote as the odds that the US government would be conducting excercises in which aircraft are hijacked and crashed into buildings on the very same day–at the very same time–when it was actually happening on 9/11, or the likelihood that on the very same day the only 3 steel framed skyscrapers in history would totally collapse into their own footprints because of some fires.

Obviously, throughout the history of the US, UK, and Israel, someone has been inclined to select the dates of 9 and 11 to perform their nefarious acts, and it’s definitely not the Muslims, folks. Who do you think is more likely to choose the historically loaded date of 9/11 to “shock and awe” US citizens into a total panic by obliterating the US center of international banking, some evil terrorist squatting in a cave somewhere, or the very same hidden globalists who have systematically taken over the United States, Israel, and the UK, and whose bloody fingerprints are all over that same date of 9/11 historically?

I suppose bin Laden thought it would be a brilliant strategic victory to destroy the largest civillian target in modern history and provoke eternal retribution by the US and Israel exactly 11 years to the day after Bush called for a New World Order on Sept 11, 1990? Or, perhaps he was trying to help his old buddy Rumsfeld out of a tight spot by obliterating the Pentagon accounting wing the day after Rumsfeld admitted losing $2.3 trillion dollars of taxpayer money. Or maybe, Mohammad Atta and the other ‘hijackers’ who received top secret training at US military bases in 2000 learned so much US, British, and Israeli political and military history that they thought it would be fitting to choose the same date for their own treacherous attacks? Give me a break.

More likely, the same NWO elements that currently control our federal government used 911, the very same number they gave to the public for assistance during serious emergencies, as the date of their treasonous event. 911, the same number most people associate with threat and alarm (“terror”) and also subsequent rescue by government, was used to psychologically shock and awe the minds of both the American people and the first responders. Is it just an accident that the greatest human sacrifice of 911 is among the brave first responders who come to rescue their fellow Americans from harm when that same number is dialed? And look at how the 9/11 first responders have been treated by the government. It’s a total disgrace!

Since 9/11/2001, we’ve come to realize who really “hates us for our freedoms” and it’s not the phony-baloney “Islamo-fascists.” As Americans, we are statistically thousands of times more likely to be struck by lightning or die from police brutality than we are to die from a “terrorist” attack. And yet our rights are being systematically dismantled day after day after day. The official story of 911 is a joke, folks, and the joke is on us. We need to find the courage to speak out before it’s too late.

Appendix: The numbers 9 and 11 appear throughout the official narrative

In addition to a historical resonance with the date of 9/11, there is a creepy pattern of nines and ones that appear in the official story itself, which is of course he most ridiculous “conspiracy theory” of all time.

“September 11” has 9 letters and 2 numbers: 9+2=11

September 11th is the 254th day of the year: 2+5+4=11
After September 11th there are 111 days remaining in the year

American Airlines Flight 11 (literally “AA-011”) crashed into the north tower.
AA 11 supposedly carried 11 crew members and 81 passengers (8+1=9) (11crew+81pass=92) 9+2=11
Flight 93 supposedly carried 63 on board: 6+3=9
Flight 175 supposedly carried 65 on board: 6+5=11

Add the digits of the 911 flight numbers to reveal a sequence beginning with flight 11.
Flight 11=11
Flight 93=12
Flight 175=13
Flight 77=14

New York City contains 11 letters. New York State was the 11th state added to the Union and the 11th state to endorse the Constitution.
The Pentagon contains 11 letters.
Afghanistan contains 11 Letters.

The government spent $9 million investigating 9/11 (and $100 million investigating the Monical Lewinsky scandal.)

Naturally, there are only 19 hijackers in the official story. “The 20th highjacker” is a probably a kinnard designed to divert attention away from the otherwise obvious pattern. In any case, 19 hijackers numerically resonates with the rest of the official account.

It’s often overlooked that the twin towers themselves visually resembled the largest ‘Eleven’ in the world. New York City’s Channel 11 used this obvious architectural symbolism in a 1980s ad campaign in which the station’s director combs Manhattan, looking for the “Biggest 11 in New York,” never noticing the towers which are in the background behind him. http://www.911truth.org/osamas/history.html

9 and 11 in occult iconology, religions, and calendars

According to Freeman, an expert on the esoteric symbolism of the elite, the pattern of 9 and 11 reveals the fingerprints of the illuminati. To them it represents the subversive sequence that skips the perfect 10.

The number 9 is said to be sacred because it is the first cube of an odd number. 9 is also related to decapitation The Masonic grade of 9th degree is full of decapitation rituals, and 9/11 is also traditionally the day the beheading of John the Baptist according to Eastern Orthodox tradition. Perhaps the holocaustic ritual in which thousands of Americans were burned alive and totally disintegrated was meant to symbolize the complete decapitation of America that would swiftly follow.

11 is considered the symbol of power and hubris in many numerological cosmologies. This is because 11 is the complete subversion and undoing of 10; a flawed addition to the perfect order of 10. Perhaps, the destruction of towers 1, 2 and 7 was intended to symbolize the destruction of the perfect 10. 1+2+7=10 The towers supposedly took up 10 million sq. ft. of space and are 110 stories tall.
They collapsed in approximately 10 seconds.

In terms of kabbalistic iconology, the number 11 is said to be symbolic of transition, excess and peril, conflict and Martyrdom. Elsewhere, 11 is described as a focal point of inversion and antithesis. One thing is for sure, the events and after math of 9/11/2001 are the very inversion and antithesis of our most basic freedoms and liberties.
(Eliphas Levi, Les Mysteres de la Kabbale, Paris, 1920.)
(Marius Schneider, El origen musical de los animales-simpolos en la mitologia y la escultura antiguas, Barcelona, 1946.)

The Hebrew calendar begins in September and is based on the Metonic cycle of 19 years. Meton of Athens discovered what is now known as the Metonic Cycle, which records the time when the solar and lunar cycles on Earth align. They are 19 years long and appear to be related to the ancient Celtic “ages” that lasted roughly the same length. The last century had an oddity in that no less than five Metonic Cycles ended and started in the same 24-hour period, which was the 11th or 12th of September depending on the international dateline.http://killtown.911review.org/oddities/911.html

Great Britain adopted the Gregorian Calendar in 1752.  Eleven days were dropped from the calendar in September, 1752. September 11 is 19 days before the beginning of Rosh Hasanah. The Jewish calendar is 6000 years old, therefore, September 11, 1999 was the 6000th anniversary of Adam’s creation, exactly 731 days before 9/11/2001. (7+3+1=11).

According to some accounts, there were 9 original Templars and they came together in 1111 taking no new members for 9 years. In 1129, the Templars are said to have brutally attacked the city of Damascus during the Crusades.http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/destruction_of_the_trade_centers.htm

The antichrist is sometimes referred to as the 11th Horn. The British intelligence asset, 33rd degree freemason and hardcore satanist, Aleister Crowley, famously wrote, “My number is 11, as all their numbers who are of us. Now ye shall know that the chosen priest and apostle of infinite space is the prince-priest the Beast” (Book Of The Law, Chapter 1).

In Revelation 9, Apostle John describes the first plague sent by God upon the people when the “shaft to the Abyss” is opened up and swarms of locusts spew forth upon the people. When I envision its imagery, I feel like a different type of “ground zero” was opened up on that day. Revelation 9:11 “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon. He was called The Destroyer and, in the Book of Revelation, St John called him the King of the locusts (Rev 9:11).

Big Victory! UK Man Wins Court Case Against BBC for 9/11 Cover Up!

Tony Rooke refused to pay a TV license fee because the BBC intentionally misrepresented facts about the 9/11 attacks, he alleged. It is widely known that the BBC reported the collapse of World

Trade Center Building 7 over 20 minutes before it occurred. WTC 7 was a 47-story skyscraper that was not hit by a plane on 9/11 but collapsed at free-fall speed later that day.

So Rooke said the BBC had to have had prior knowledge to a terror attack making them complicit in the attack. He presented the BBC footage to the judge along with a slew of other evidence, and the judge agreed that Rooke had a reasonable case to protest. Rooke was found not guilty and he was not fined for failure to pay the licensing fee.

Below is the broadcast where the BBC announced the collapse of WTC 7 while it was still standing behind the reporter.

9 11 truth Carlyle group investors

There were business ties between the bin Laden and the Bush families as recent as 1995 when the bin Ladens invested $2 million dollars into the Carlyle Group of which George H. W. Bush is a board member. The bin Laden and the Bush families apparently severed their relationship in October 2001. This was at the same time that the Carlyle Group went public with their privately held United Defense Industries, a defense contractor that produces missile launch systems – the ones that are on U.S. war ships in the Arabian Sea. [xi] This was also a month after several members of the bin Laden family left the United States, without being questioned about their relative – the prime suspect in the 9/11 attack. They left on a private jet before any one else was allowed to travel by air after 9/11.

Mystery, Babylon the Great

Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters… And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH… And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, thees shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire… and the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

(Revelation 17:1-18)

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven… And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen… And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached onto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities… Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire… And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning. Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls… The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing… For in one hour so great riches is come nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! … And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

(Revelation 18:1-24)


Gate of the God

Is New York City — plausibly the greatest city on earth — the city called ‘Babylon’ personified by a ‘great whore’? Does the scriptural passages concerning the fall of Babylon have some relevance to the 911 terrorist attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center twin towers? Indeed, since many had long compared NYC to the scriptural ‘Babylon’, the ‘prophecies’ in Revelation quoted above can quite naturally be considered applicable to the first major attack on the US homeland – one of the biggest, and most shocking, terrorist incidents in all history. Although some may object to the resultant implication that NYC is the city of sinners that had to be destroyed by ‘God’ himself, I’d point out that the sense of ‘good vs. evil’ in the Bible is quite a murky one that should not be taken too literally. (In fact, nothing in religious writings is to be taken literally – it’s a trap that ape-brained men can’t seem to get past… and this has caused so much trouble for the world throughout history. This is what happens when a powerful ‘gift’ is given to those who are not ready to handle it. History of mankind since c. 4000 BC — when ‘Pandora’s box’ was opened — is the story of humans struggling to co-exist with the divine ‘gift’.) A case in point: in Genesis, we read that at one time men were all united, spoke one language, and worked together in harmony toward reaching ‘heaven’:

And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.  (Genesis 11:4)

In other words, mankind was thriving in peace and had high hopes. And what does ‘God’ do?

And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel…  (Genesis 11:5-9)

If the biblical ‘God’ represents all that is ‘good’, then this episode does not make much sense, does it? If ‘good’ represents men not living in harmony and striving to become something better, then what good is being ‘good’? Hence, the overlay of NYC and Babylon the ‘whore’ need not be viewed as an ‘evil’ city versus those representing the ‘good’. And there is, of course, a direct parallel between the NYC-Babylon juxtaposition and the biblical tale concerning the building of the Tower of Babel just quoted above.WTC-towers.jpg (10756 bytes)According to tradition, the Tower of Babel was built in the ancient city of Babylon – in fact ‘Babel’ and ‘Babylon’ are practically interchangeable terms. How fitting is it that it was the twin towers — by far the tallest in the city — of the modern Babylon, i.e. NYC, that were destroyed in the recent terrorist attacks? NYC is the ultimate melting pot of all peoples of this planet where they interact in harmony (well-exemplified by NYC being the home of the United Nations) and produce something great — just like the builders of the Tower of Babel. And even the designation of ‘whore’ is quite applicable as at the entrance to NYC is found the welcoming Statue of Liberty, a great woman symbolizing the great city.

There are further correlations to be yielded by the label ‘whore’. A character in the scriptures that would best fit the description is Mary Magdalene – an enigmatic female companion, or quite likely the lover/wife, of Jesus Christ. Although Mary Magdalene is never described as a prostitute in the New Testament, it has been the prevalent view that she was. Chances are, though, the Magdalene is to be considered a ‘whore’ only in the symbolic sense that she was a version of the ancient Egyptian goddess par excellence, Isis, the wife-sister of Osiris, who was both a ‘virgin’ and a ‘whore’ as well as a goddess of wisdom and magic. (Isis’ companion Osiris was killed and later resurrected to nicely parallel the Magdalene’s companion, Jesus.) Isis, in turn, was represented in the sky by the great star Sirius — a star of utmost importance to the ancient Egyptians as its ‘rebirth’ (i.e. ‘heliacal rising’) in mid-summer had the function of marking the New Year and signaling the beginning of the life-giving annual flooding of the Nile, roughly coinciding with the summer solstice. Curiously, the biblical tale about the Tower of Babel immediately follow those concerning Noah and the Great Flood as if to echo the correlation.

Esoterically, Sirius is represented by a five-pointed star, i.e. a pentagonal form — thus ending up strongly resonating with the fact that the ‘911’ terrorist attacks hit not just the WTC towers but also the Pentagon (whose construction, by the way, began on 9-11). Sirius, moreover, may be considered a ‘stargate’ par excellence for in ancient Egypt ‘star’ was interchangeable with ‘doorway’. Sirius being the brightest star in the night sky, it can thusly be viewed as the ultimate ‘gate of heaven’, or ‘gate of the god’ – which just happens to be the very meaning of the name ‘Babylon’. Similarly, the name given to the historical Tower of Babel,Etemenanki, meant ‘the house of the foundation of heaven and earth’, i.e. a gate to heaven. This link is then further enhanced by the fact that the name ‘Magdalene’ (as Magdala) can mean ‘tower’ as in the Tower of Babel and the WTC twin towers. Reinforcing the connection even more, amazingly, is the groundbreaking date of the WTC twin towers being August 5, that is, the very date of Sirius’ heliacal rising/’rebirth’ in our epoch!  The Magdalene’s name can also mean ‘place of the dove’ – which is still quite intriguing as it relates to the flood theme; it was a dove that signaled for Noah that the flood had ended (see Gen. 8:8-12).
The Fallen

In Genesis, the cause of the biblical Flood is — rather mysteriously — associated with ‘fallen angels’, or ‘giants’/’sons of God’, more properly called the ‘Nephilim’:

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And God saw that the wickedness was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth…

This is a typical English translation of Genesis 6:4-7 that contains some errors, including the last phrase, ‘men of renown’. It may be more accurately rendered as ‘the people of theshem’. What, then, is the ‘shem’? Zecharia Sitchin writes:

The persistence of biblical translators to employ “name” wherever they encounter shem has ignored a farsighted study published more than a century ago by G. M. Redslob… in which he correctly pointed out that the term shemand the term shamaim (“heaven”) stem from the root word shamah, meaning “that which is highward.”  (The 12th Planet, pp.147-8)

The shem was also closely linked with fire and a stone; the shem thus was a ‘highward fire-stone’. It is, in other words, apparently a reference to a meteorite. This is strongly corroborated by the fact that:

Shems were particularly associated with something called an-na, which meant ‘heavenly stone’, a term that was also used to define a shining metal. The use of the word shem in respect of its ‘shining’ aspect is apparent in the alternative name for Prince Utu, brother of Inanna… His epithet was Shem-esh: the Shining One.  (Laurence Gardner, Genesis of the Grail Kings, p.120)

So, what we have here is this: the shem was a ‘heavenly shining fire-stone’ while the Nephilim, i.e. the ‘fallen angles’ (also called the ‘Shining Ones’), were the ‘people of theshem’.

The shem also figures in the tale of the Tower of Babel:

…let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a shem, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

Again, the shem is directly associated with heaven, and here it is additionally linked with the top of a tower – which makes the shem very much comparable to the Egyptian Benben Stone which too is thought to have been a meteorite and was placed at the very top of a pyramid or obelisk. It may also be noticed that the Babel story conceptually parallels the saga of the ‘fallen angels’ who were punished by ‘God’ for overreaching just as was the case with the builders of the Tower.

The Benben Stone connection then brings us back to Osiris, the husband-brother of Isis, as ancient Egyptian theology equated the heavenly stone with the soul of Osiris as well as the phoenix. Since the phoenix signifies the concept of resurrection, it may be inferred that the Benben/shem is symbolic of Osirian resurrection which mythologically takes place with the help of Isis. And similarly, Jesus — in theory, the biblical Osiris — is identified in the New Testament with the cornerstone of the Temple that the ‘builders rejected’:

…Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone…  (Ephesians 2:20)

Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.  (Acts 4:10-1)

This notion of a rejected cornerstone can easily be compared to the ‘rejected’ capstone/benben of the greatest Egyptian ‘Temple’, the Great Pyramid. Combined with a cornerstone’s significance as the transition from the underground realm to the upper realm, the rejected cornerstone even echoes the Benben Stone being symbolic of Osirian resurrection (thus further reinforcing the Osiris-Jesus identification).
Antediluvian Pillars

Osiris was considered the ruler of the Golden Age known to the ancient Egyptians as the Zep Tepi, or ‘First Time’. This mythical realm in turn has been often associated with the supposed great antediluvian civilization that Plato called ‘Atlantis’. In Plato’s accounts of this lost world, the only clear reference to its geographical position is that it was situated beyond the ‘pillars of Hercules’ (an ancient name for the Straits of Gibraltar at the western end of the Mediterranean Sea). Osiris, correspondingly, was often depicted in the shape of a pillar by the ancient Egyptians. Could the two ‘pillars of Hercules’ that represented a gateway to the paradisiacal realm be now considered analogous to the Tower of Babel/’gate of the god’ or more specifically the twin towers/pillars of NYC destroyed in the 9-11 terrorist attacks?

The imagery of two pillars is also clearly evocative of the two pillars of Jachin and Boaz (symbolizing individual power and life) that stood at the entrance to Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem, the home of the Ark of the Covenant. They were made of brass (1 Kings 7:15) – which has a most fitting implication as brass/bronze is considered to signify ‘the indissoluble compact between Earth and Heaven and the pledge of the everlasting stability of this covenant’ (Chevalier & Gheerbrant, Dictionary of Symbols, “column”). Representations of these pillars are still found in lodges of Freemasonry, a large semi-secret and esoteric organization which carries within its mysterious tradition that of the medieval warrior-monks, the Knights Templar.

After its sudden dissolution initiated by the French king Philip the Fair in 1307, the Templar survivors apparently made their way into Scotland where they and their tradition found a sanctuary and were maintained by certain interlocking families including the Sinclairs, the patron of Scottish Freemasonry, who had a close connection with the Templar knights. Among the Templar legacies were almost certainly things they had obtained at the site of Solomon’s Temple which they had been allowed to use as their headquarters. It is known that the knights excavated the site and probably found something of great importance which may have contributed to the rapid rise to the top of the power structure in Christendom. So it was quite obviously through the incorporation of Templarism that Freemasonry came to adopt the Solomonic twin-pillar symbolism.

That these pillars are relevant to our discussion is effectively confirmed by the imagery on one of the tarot cards called the ‘High Priestess’ or ‘Papess’ which shows a high priestess/female pope along with the pillars of Jachin and Boaz marked ‘J’ and ‘B’.

tarot-priestess.gif (30474 bytes)

The Papess almost certainly represents none other than Mary Magdalene (= Isis, Babylon, tower, etc.) who actually had a power struggle with Peter the first pope according to Gnostic Gospels. Also, tellingly, the term ‘prostitute’ (a description often applied to the Magdalene), as hierodulae, would refer to the ‘sacred women’– or ‘priestesses’ — of the temple of the Goddess who performed a ritual practice resembling the anointing of Jesus by Mary of Bethany (often equated with Mary Magdalene). In ancient times, anointing of the king was a ritual – called the ‘Sacred Marriage’ in Greek – performed by a royal bride; the implication being that Mary Magdalene married Jesus, just as Isis was the wife of Osiris, resulting in the ‘Holy Grail’ which is the ‘Blood Royal’.

The pillars of Jachin and Boaz also nicely relate back to the themes of the Flood and Atlantis as originally these Masonic pillars represented the ‘Antediluvian Pillars’ erected by Enoch, Noah’s great-grandfather, who is considered one of Freemasonry’s founders. According to legend, Enoch had the foreknowledge of the coming Deluge and constructed nine hidden vaults in which he concealed certain knowledge. He then placed two columns at the site upon which were inscribed the ‘seven sciences’ of mankind and such. The vaults were later found by Solomon while building his Temple. Enoch, therefore, can be viewed as a prototype of Noah and the vaults/pillars are another form of the Ark containing antediluvian, or Atlantean, ‘knowledge’.

It is interesting to point out here that it is the ‘Book of Enoch’ that contains the most detailed account of the affairs of the ‘fallen angels’/’Watchers’ briefly mentioned in Genesis. Also, that the number of Enoch’s vaults was nine, combined with the twin pillars visually forming the number ’11’, raises the possibility that the date of the terrorist attacks on the NYC twin towers (9-11) was in reference, at least in part, to the Antediluvian Pillars and its connection to the WTC ‘pillars’. Seemingly supportive of this, numerically, also is the fact that there are exactly 111 days left in the year after 9-11. As it happens, the Sumerian version of Noah’s Ark “was a cube – a modest one, measuring 60x60x60 fathoms, which represents the unit in the sexagesimal system where 60 is written as 1” (Hamlet’s Mill, p.219). In other words, the original Ark could be considered to have measured 1x1x1 or ‘111’.

On the Etemenanki website, I have long pointed out the persistent symbolic connection that apparently exists between high-impact world events — especially airplane crashes — and the theme of the Ark-Grail (see 1999: The Ark of Sirius for example). The ‘911’ event involving airplane crashes, needless to say, fits the pattern very well.

After some contemplation, I have now finally found a reasonably sound explanation as to why such a symbolic link exists. An ‘airplane’ is a perfect vehicle to carry the notion of the ‘air-plane’ as in the ‘dimension of air’ that is sandwiched between the planes of earth and heaven. Its relative position therefore is implicative of the familiar theme of the unification or ‘gate’ of earth and heaven. In support of this interpretation, we find that in ancient Egypt it was conceptualized that the air god Shu was sort of a pillar that held the vault of heaven above. This imagery is strikingly evocative of Atlas of Greek mythology who was condemned to bearing the heaven on his shoulders for eternity after the great war with the Olympians. Atlas, in turn, is said to have been the first king of Atlantis and in effect the embodiment of this legendary civilization!

Airplane crashes would therefore be analogous to the destruction of the antediluvian world, i.e. none other the the Great Flood, which may be conceptually thought of as the collapse of great pillars/towers/gate — and that is exactly what took place at the World Trade Center in NYC!

The planes crashing into the WTC towers and the Pentagon was of course like no other plane crashes. The magnitude of devastation and symbolic coherence was off the scale. Does this imply something? Why so strong an echo of the ‘Atlantean’ destruction in 2001?

Could it be that like Osiris and the phoenix, Atlantis is getting ready to rise again from its ashes now? Is the Ark about to be opened? Is the discovery of the fabled Atlantean ‘Hall of Records’ imminent?

In 2000, an underwater city with pyramidal structures was detected off the coast of Cuba. Researchers have been quietly examining this most enigmatic archaeological find behind the scenes. We are at this time simply awaiting the news of this paradigm-shattering revelation to break. Could this be relevant? It seems so.

Indeed, long before the ‘911’ attacks I had already detected a curious pattern. In the ‘View from Here’ section of the Etemenanki website, for example, I have made the following remarks:

  • June 20: “Looks like this is going to be a summer of Atlantis.”
  • July 06: “…the undercurrent esoteric theme of this summer was to be the ‘rising’ of AtlantisI’d say ‘the timetable’, the template of history, is dictating that 2001 be the beginning of the ‘resurrection of Osiris’ (which has many levels of meaning).”

Along with these I had also noted how this theme appeared to be entangled with Mars at which NASA’s latest probe, Mars Odyssey, just arrived on Oct. 23, ’01. cydonia.jpg (23451 bytes)All summer long, Mars was very close to Earth — in fact, closest in over a decade — and was a dominant object in the night sky. And since 1998, Mars Global Surveyor had been giving us new photographs of the controversial Cydonia “monuments” on Mars in an attempt to confirm or refute the claim of the Cydonian structures being artificial – a question that still has not been settled but is getting more and more intriguing. Perhaps Odyssey will help solving the enigma soon.

It cannot be ignored that NYC, where the ‘Atlantean pillars’ stood, is situated at ~40.8°N latitude which happens to be the very latitude of the Martian ‘monuments’ in Cydonia. pentagon_damage.jpg (17625 bytes)And one of the most intriguing Cydonia structures happens to be a pentagonal pyramid called the ‘D&M Pyramid’ which is very much evocative of the Pentagon hit by a plane on 9-11. The Martian Pentagon is even partially collapsed to reflect the US Pentagon, or vice versa.

What are we to make of all these and other connections? Atlantis… Mars… Was Atlantis on (gasp) Mars? Did mankind first started on the Red Planet before the “Flood”? One telling clue is the fact that the humans ‘free-running circadian rhythm’ (i.e. the natural sleep-awake cycle without any external time cues such as sunrise, sunset, clock, daily routine, etc.) is not 24 hours as expected, but about 24.7 hours long instead – that is, almost precisely the length of a Martian day.

Did man ‘fall’ to Earth in an “Exodus” from the Red Planet like a life-seeding meteorite and knowledge-providing ‘fallen angles’? The shem was a ‘fire-stone’ – isn’t this a potent allusion to Mars, the planet/’stone’ of fire?

What was placed in the Ark of Moses, according to some scholars, were actually meteorites. Could the tale of Moses and his Ark, then, be another version of Noah and his Ark? Was the ‘Exodus’ of the Israelites led by Moses, then, actually a parabolic story about aninterplanetary migration of man in the forgotten past?

The 911 event being a symbolic reenactment of the Flood (i.e. destruction of ‘Atlantis’), wouldn’t the pattern dictate that the next event be a mass ‘Exodus’? Could it be just a coincidence that I conceptually equated President Bush with Moses in The Two Suns of Election MM last year?

But where would be the destination of this ‘Exodus’? Where is our ‘Promised Land’?

You guessed it: Mars.

mars-typical.jpg (10305 bytes)

The world events today appear to be symbolically anticipating mankind’s imminent migration to the Red Planet on which will likely be found enough water to sustain a full-blown civilization soon (this is probably where Mars Odyssey comes in).

We are going back to our Genesis, the First Time, the Golden Age, the Age of Osiris.

America is no longer the ‘New World’. Mars is. And this is actually part of what I had in mind when I stated in early 2000:

Now, I’m not sure if I want to say this… but here is something that the data I have is suggesting to me.  It’s that the year 2000/2001 is to bring to the United States one of the biggest events the country has ever experienced.  This is not something I ‘believe’ or based on ‘millennial’ mentality; it’s just what the data I have (not presented on this website) is suggesting to me.  The key concepts attached to this are termination and ‘New World’.

Mars is Osiris. And Osiris is being resurrected like a rising Morning Star. It is time for a Total Recall.

Symbolic Analysis of the Current World Events

Pillars of Hercules

The great philosopher Plato told us in his writings that there was once a great civilization called Atlantis — an antediluvian ‘island’ — that was situated beyond the ‘Pillars of Hercules’, now called the Strait of Gibraltar at the western extremity of the Mediterranean Sea. Supposedly, it was destroyed in a catastrophe comparable to that of the biblical Great Flood. True or not, this tale has fascinated many minds and spawned a countless number of books as well as a major Hollywood animation film, ‘Atlantis’, released just last year. The recent years saw a great surge in people’s interest in the subject thanks largely to certain predictions made by the famous American ‘Sleeping Prophet’, Edgar Cayce many decades ago. While the track record of his predictions has not been stellar, his apparent psychic abilities demonstrated elsewhere warranted for many that his information about the ‘resurrection’ of Atlantis should be taken seriously.

The influential prophecy was that, basically, around the turn of the millennium, archaeological evidence of the lost civilization would surface along with the discovery of its ‘Hall of Records’ — an Atlantean ‘black box’ — that supposedly contains vital information about the world that came and went before ours. In Cayce’s own confusing words:

For here those that that were trained in the Temple Sacrifice as well as the Temple Beautiful were about the sealing of the Record Chambers. For these were to be kept as had been given by the priests in Atlantis or Poseidia when these records of the race, of the developments, of the laws pertaining to One were put in their chambers and to be opened only when there was the returning of those into materiality, or to earth’s experience, when the change was imminent in the earth; which change, we see, begins in ’58 and ends with the changes wrought in upheavals and the shifting of the poles, as begins then in the reign in ’98… (Reading 378-16)

Around the year 1998 certainly saw variously activities that were apparently attempts to ‘fulfill’ Cayce’s prediction. Of course, no Atlantis resurrection occurred and most involved are now inclined, in an ad hoc fashion, to interpret Cayce’s words as indicating that the rising of the Atlantis is to begin or be underway around 1998 — which actually should have been the view all along in light of Cayce’s nearly indecipherable wording.

Just as when the widespread millennial anticipation of some major earth-shaking events had largely faded, however, the year 2001 brought us the world-changing event of 9-11 in NYC and Washington DC. Certainly, this was one of the biggest events that the US had ever experienced. It made the proud and seemingly invincible nation stop laughing and curl itself into a survival mode – at least for a while. Of course, this event, however profound and shocking it was, was not anything related to the idle issue of some mythical world from beyond history.

Or, was it?

The most tangible geographical clue as to the position of Atlantis is the Pillars of Hercules. These can be conceived of as twin towers marking the Strait of Gibraltar, the narrow gate between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The location is immediately north of the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa which has been identified with Hercules. This mountain range is also personified by Atlas in Greek mythology, the first king of Atlantis, who was condemned to support the sphere of heavens on his shoulders for eternity. And yet another alter ego of these is the air god of Egyptian mythology, Shu, who was visualized as a pillar connecting (or separating) earth and the sky. So, clearly, the notion of a tall pillar is deeply embedded here in association with Atlantis. Or more specifically, the idea being conveyed seems to be twin towers considering the twin Pillars of Hercules and the fact that Hercules himself was a twin (Robert Graves, The White Goddess, p.125). Further reinforcing this view are the Masonic ‘Antediluvian Pillars’ — interchangeable with the two pillars of Jachin and Boaz –that are said to have come from the time before the Flood, or from ‘Atlantis’. Since these Antediluvian Pillars (or Enoch’s Pillars) were originally constructed for the purpose of preserving the knowledge of the pre-Flood realm, they are analogous to the Atlantean ‘Hall of Records’. The Atlantean ‘black box’ and twin pillars are therefore clearly inseparable.

So, we are forced to wonder if the 9-11 destruction of the WTC twin towers are related to the anticipated millennial ‘Atlantis event’.

The 11th Labour

It is a widely known fact that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were heavily intertwined, for some reason, with the number ’11’. On the 11th day of the month, an airline jet designated ‘Flight 11′ crashed into one of the WTC twin towers which visually form the number ’11’, to give just some examples. So, it is intriguing to find out that, in Greek myth, it was during his ’11th Labour’, out of 12 Labours in all, that Hercules came to Mount Atlas. And his mission here was to fetch fruit from the golden apple-tree planted in Hera’s garden on the slopes of the mountain. This he accomplished with the help of Atlas, freed temporarily from carrying the celestial globe while Hercules held it for him. That apples should figure in this particular Labour compounds the synchronicity as NYC, the city of the WTC towers, has the nickname the ‘Big Apple’.

Interestingly, immediately after getting the apple, Hercules went on to free Prometheus chained to the Caucasus Mountains. Prometheus, the greatest benefactor of mankind, had been confined there by Zeus for stealing ‘fire’ for us — which should sound familiar to those following the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, the official slogan of which is ‘Light the Fire Within‘ (and the theme of the grand opening ceremony was clearly Prometheus imparting divine fire to humans). This seemingly weak association actually gets a big boost from the fact that the 11th Labour involved an Olympic-like wrestling match between Hercules and Antaeus. In fact, the Olympic Games have been thought to signify the death and ‘election’ of none other than Hercules.

The indications are that the U.S. Olympic Games’ close proximity in space and time to the 9-11 twin-tower destruction has some important underlying symbolic ‘message’ — and we will have some insights into this below.

‘King of Terror’

According to mythologist Robert Graves, “‘Hercules in Classical Greece became in fact another name for the Sun…the Sun and the Ark are, indeed, the most important elements of the Hercules myth” (ibid., pp.133,145). The Ark connection certainly correlates well with what was discussed in my previous article ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great‘. The sun connection, on the other hand, contributes to a remarkable associative web that provides a solution to one of those mysterious pieces of the ‘puzzle’.

For a long time, people all over the world have been trying to figure out the meaning of the phrase, ‘King of terror’, that appears in Nostradamus’ most famous prophetic quatrain, designated X-72. This is, of course, the dreaded ‘1999’ prediction.

Century X-72
L’an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois,
Du ciel viendra vn grand Roy d’effrayeur:
Resusciter le grand Roy d’Angolmois,
Auant apres Mars regner par bon-heur.
The year 1999 seven months,
From the sky will come a great King of terror:
To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois,
Before after Mars to reign by good luck

Popular interpretations of this were that it predicted a rock from space hitting the earth, a nuclear attack, the coming of the ‘Antichrist’, and such. People — including most of the so-called “experts” (more accurately, ‘Nosta-dumbasses’) — sure had fun with those simplistic views, until the year 1999 came and went without anything of such magnitude occurring.

Did Nostradamus ‘miss’ with this quatrain? Should Nostradamus be considered a discredited “prophet”?

Frankly, he might as well be disregarded. It’s about time those one-dimensional thinking Nostradumbasses got a wake-up call and be disenchanted. This is not to say that there isn’t a prophetic quality to the quatrains — just not in the form, or level, that most people automatically assume. My personal position is this: everything is “prophetic” (i.e. ‘signs are everywhere if you have the eyes to see’); this quality is pronounced when the element of creativity is involved; and since poems are the result of a very creative mental process, quatrains of Nostradamus should easily contain seeds of the future, even if he wasn’t a “prophet” per se. There is a deep, multifaceted philosophy behind this view, but we will not go into that here.

Ironically, interest in Nostradamus was resurrected with a vengeance immediately following ‘9-11’. For weeks, if not months, after the event, Nostradamus books were the fastest selling items in book stores, including Amazon.com which listed as many as five Nosty books in its top-10 sellers. Even my website became inaccessible for days because it was getting just too many hits. The cause of the frantic public reaction was to be traced back to, of course, fake quatrains. Most notably, there was one quatrain that got a lot of attention which turned out to be something a skeptic made up (before 9-11) to demonstrate that a vaguely worded prediction would fit some events sooner or later. This person’s ‘poem’ would quickly prove to describe the terrorist attacks rather neatly (thus making his point), but I personally see it as an amusing example how a poeticized brain with room for spontaneity tends to resonate with the ‘future’, even if not consciously intended.

The ‘9-11’ event, in my view, also ‘resurrected’, specifically, Quatrain X-72. It now makes a good, poetic/symbolic sense from many angles.

It turns out that the ‘King of terror’ is an epithet related to Ra, the sun-god of Egyptian mythology who is called the ‘lord of terror‘ in the Pyramid Texts. Since the sun is closely associated with Hercules, who in turn is linked to Atlantis and the WTC-tower destruction, we have here the first sign of X-72’s relevance. And of course the fact that the ‘King of terror’ is to come “from the sky” evokes the ‘kamikaze’ airplanes, masterminded by the ‘king of terrorists‘ (Osama bin Ladin), that assaulted the twin towers. It may also be noted that ‘airplanes’ are a potent metaphor for Shu, the god of air, i.e. the ‘air plane’ (air dimension). Shu is none other than the pillar equatable with the Atlantean/Herculean pillars, thus relatable also to, again, the WTC twin towers.

Line 3, ‘To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois’, reinforces the connection because in the early days of the New World, the region of NYC was given the name  ‘Angoulême’. The attached notion of resurrection is also fitting as it relates to the idea of the millennial Atlantean ‘resurrection’, and it conjures up Osiris, the Egyptian god of the dead and resurrection. It may be said that Osiris embodies the ‘second coming’ of the paradisical antediluvian golden age, i.e. ‘Atlantis’, which in the terminology of ancient Egypt would be called Zep Tepi, the ‘First Time’, which was the Age of Osiris. In a way, the whole ancient Egyptian theology was centered around the idea of Osirian resurrection – the cyclical return of the golden age, symbolized in nature by the annual flooding of the Nile which brought the gift of fertile silt to the land of Egypt. Amazingly, this association is corroborated by Line 2’s ‘King of terror’. Like Ra, Osiris is viewed as the ‘Lord of Terror’ in the Egyptian Book of the Dead:

“Hail, Lord of Terror…”
Who is this Lord of Terror?
“…It is the Heart of Osiris…”

The fact that the Great Sphinx at Giza has the Arabic epithet, ‘Father of Terrors’, reiterates the Osirian connection, especially considering that the Sphinx is a form of Horus, the son of Osiris, whose life-mission is to bring back the ‘First Time’ of Osiris, or to resurrect his father murdered by Seth.

The Great Sphinx/’Father of Terrors’ and Horus also happen to be closely associated, if not equated, with Mars which was called ‘Horus of Horizon’ as well as ‘Horus the Red’. We also know that the name of the Egyptian capital adjacent to Giza, ‘Cairo’, denotes ‘Mars’. And on Mars are purported artificial “monuments” at Cydonia which includes the famous ‘Face on Mars’. This ‘Face’ was rephotographed in 2001 by Mars Global Surveyor and was revealed/confirmed to have, apparently, a dual nature: its eastern side is leonine and its western hominid. Note that the lion-man combination directly reflects the duality of the Great Sphinx that has a lion’s body and man’s head. The connection is even geodetically supported, as researchers have found that the tangent of Cydonia’s latitude equals the cosine of the latitude of Giza/Sphinx (both equaling e/pi).

The striking revelation here is that the latitude of Cydonia, ~40.8 N, directly relates to the WTC destruction in NYC, in that, simply put, NYC sits on the very same latitude! And relevant here also is the fact that Cairo, the ‘city of Mars’, was originally called ‘Babylon’. In my previous article, ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great‘, I identified NYC as the modern Babylon and its twin towers as the modern version of the Tower of Babel. Clearly, then, Mars is a ‘King of terror’ — which, come to think of it, is very natural in view of the fact the Red Planet is indeed metaphorically the ‘king’ of the two Martian satellites Phobos (‘fear’) and Deimos (‘terror’).

The multi-layered connection is rather overwhelming, and sure enough, this is echoed by X-72’s Line 4 which specially mentions Mars: Before after Mars to reign by good luck‘. Mars being the Greek god of war, the line also hints at the involvement of war, thus is nicely relatable to America’s on-going ‘war against terror

This leaves us only Line 1: ‘The year 1999 seven months‘. Obviously, the indicated timing does not match the 9-11-2001 date. What does this mean? Saying ‘close enough’, for me, just does not cut it.

The 2-Year Offset Scheme

This problem perplexed me for a long time. But rather than forcing a contrived interpretation upon it, I decided to just patiently wait for the answer to make itself known to me (and I felt quite confident that I would get the answer sooner or later). It was on February 7 (2002) that the answer finally began to appear, thanks to an article by Robert Bauval (the brain behind the Orion Correlation Theory) posted on a online message board. It was titled SATAN’S CALLING CARD SEPTEMBER 11: A DATE TO REMEMBERand discussed the symbolism and synchronicity involved in the ‘9-11’ event.

It contained information concerning calendrical issues related to the date, September 11. I learned that ,for the Ethiopian and Coptic/Christian-Egyptian calendars, the Gregorian Sept. 11 almost always marks the New Year’s Day. In the year 1999, however, Sept. 11 also coincided with the Jewish New Year, known as Rosh Hashanah. So, here is our first clue as to the connection between 9-11 and 1999. Bauval then goes on to point out that:

…the Jewish ‘New Year’ has a much deeper meaning to orthodox Jews. It is associated to the Messianic Age, and many Jews today actually believe that it will be on that ‘Feast of Trumpets’ that their long awaited Messiah will come and make his appearance on the ‘Temple’ at Jerusalem. This day, it is said, will be the ‘ultimate redemption’ of Israel. Curiously, in recent years fundamental Christians have also associated the 11th September with the Second Coming of Christ, probably to conform with the ‘Rosh Hashanah’ Judaic prophecies but also, apparently, because some believe the true ‘star of Bethlehem’ appeared to the Magi on the 11th September 3 BC in the east, when a bright light was seen at the conjunction of the ‘star of kings’, Regulus, and the ‘planet of kings’, Jupiter, and when the sun, Venus and Mercury were in Virgo.

This is remarkable for two reasons. First, the notion of the ‘Second Coming’ of Jesus emerging here correlates perfectly with the permeating theme of Osirian (Atlantean) resurrection since Jesus is a version of Osiris (as well as Horus). This is backed up by the fact that many of Jesus’ tales and symbols very closely mimic Osiris’, just as Moses’ birth episode is a mirror image of that of Sargon the Great. Indeed, the Jesus-Osiris connection is reinforced by another comment made by Bauval:

The ‘Beginning of the Year’ or New Year’s Day of the Egyptians was marked by the first dawn rising of Sirius, a star sacred to the goddess Isis, which originally occurred on the day of the summer solstice i.e. on the 21st June Gregorian. This special day was called 1st day of the 1st month of Thoth. But because of the ¼ day difference as well as a small variance the sidereal year and the tropical year, this after all man-made calendar slowly ‘drifted’ away from both the heliacal rising of Sirius and the summer solstice, such that by the early Christian times the 1st of the month of Thoth had drifted to the 11th September Gregorian, which is why the Egyptian-Coptic ‘New Year’ i.e. 1st of Thoth, starts on that date.

Sirius-Isis is the wife of Osiris, and the star’s heliacal rising not only marked the New Year but also the beginning of the Nile inundation, which in turn symbolized the reawakened vitality of Osiris, i.e. Osirian resurrection.

The second reason has to do with the speculative date given for the star of Bethlehem, i.e. Jesus’ birthday, Sept. 11, 3 BC. This would make the Gregorian calendar 2 to 3 years behind the actual dating from Jesus’ birth. So, the Gregorian “year 1999” would correspond to year 2001/2002. The date 9-11-01 would, therefore, be analogous to 9-11-99! Let’s take another look at Line 1 of Quatrain X-72:

L’an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois
The year 1999 seven months

Note that ‘seven months’, or ‘seventh month’, is originally written ‘sept mois‘. Its resemblance to ‘September’ is no coincidence as September was originally the seventh month. So, the line could just as easily and validly translated as ‘the year 1999, September’. Combined with the 1999-2001 calendrical correspondence, it would further turn into ‘the year 2001, September’. And we know what happened on 9-11-01 and how the event is very effectively described by the rest of the quatrain!

But there is more.

Black Sun, Double Sun

‘The year 1999 seven months’, if taken literally, points to July/August of that year. Curiously, on August 11, 1999, there was a major total eclipse. It turns out that this, too, strongly resonates with the Osirian resurrection theme. Osiris’ death is traditionally associated with a black sun, and the death of his Christianized version, Jesus, is similarly associated with a darkened sun in the Gospels. Needless to say, a total eclipse is in effect a ‘black sun’. And, of course, the relevance of the sun is quite directly suggested by Line 2’s ‘King/Lord of terror’ being an epithet of the sun/Ra/Osiris. In a sense, then, the 1999 eclipse was a symbolic omen foreshadowing the more physical manifestation of the death/resurrection of Osiris that was to come on 9-11-01.

The Great Sphinx, the ‘Father of Terrors’, is also an embodiment of the sun/Horus. Here, we actually find another confirmation of the 2-year offset scheme of X-72. Sphinxes are almost always found in pairs (the one at Giza is a rare exception). This is echoed by the fact that the Sphinx is a form of Atum who in turn is closely connected with Rwty, the ‘double-lion’. The double-lion, Aker, also guards the Fifth Division of the Duat, the ‘Tomb of Osiris’. Now, in view of the Sphinx/lion-sun interchangeability, the ‘double-lion’ may be rephrased as ‘double-sun’. The sun goes through all the Zodiacal constellations of the ecliptic in one year. So, the expression ‘double-sun’ may be interpreted as ‘two years’. And 1999 plus two years gives us 2001. (Come to think of it, the ‘twin’ nature of Hercules/sun and the Atlantean/WTC towers has the same implication as well.)

The notion of the ‘double sun’ next brings our attention to another quatrain, II-41. This is one of the few quatrains that I have found to be relevant to our own time, as can be seen from my previous articles. It specifically mentions ‘double sun’ (Line 2).

Century II – 41 
La grand’ estoille par sept jours bruslera,
Nuee fera deux soleils apparoir:
Le gros mastin toute nuit hurlera,
Quand grand pontife changera de terroir.
The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will make double sun appear:
The large mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff changes his abode.

What catches our attention here, aside from Line 2, is the reference to the Pope in Line 4. Could it be just a coincidence that the current pope, John Pope II, is called ‘De Labore Solis‘ in St Malachy’s remarkably accurate prophetic list of popes from many centuries ago? The Latin motto, De Labore Solis, means ‘From the Labour of the Sun’, or metaphorically, ‘of the Eclipse of the Sun’! Although Pope JPII was indeed born during the solar eclipse of May 18, 1920 (!), the allusion to an solar eclipse/’black sun’ here is an amazing confirmation of the foregoing interpretation which centers around Osiris and Hercules. Wait a minute… ‘labour of the sun’? Did we not just establish that Hercules personifies the sun and how his (11th) labourrelates to the current world events? The ‘labour of the sun’, in other words, denotes ‘Labour of Hercules’ so as to confirm our earlier interpretation!

The new and important twist here is the fact that II-41’s Line 4 refers to a change of papacy. In other words, we have here a strong indication that the reign of the ‘eclipse pope’, John Paul II, is coming to an end… soon. But how ‘soon’? All the symbolism seemingly suggest that it is to occur concurrently with the unrest caused by the ‘9-11’ terror. In fact, the Salt Lake City Olympics would be an effective time marker for the pope event. This is because ‘the Olympic Games were the occasion of… Hercules’ death and of the election of his successor’(Graves, The White Goddess, p.132). In light of the inseparable link established between Pope JPII and Hercules, the occasion of the election of the next Hercules signified by the Olympics inevitably implies the election of the next pope! While I cannot say for sure whether the timing of the two events will directly coincide or it will interact in a more indirect fashion, the next major world event is likely to be the exit of Pope John Paul II. And my view is that the election of the next pope will be very strange, not unlike the 2001 US presidential election, as discussed in my Two Suns of Election MM article.

These findings above are really just a by-product of my ‘other’ research, so I actually have a lot more information that can help paint a clearer ‘big picture’. And I hope to share the ‘other’ findings on this website some time in the future. In the mean time, you can look for more future updates on the issues discussed in this and previous articles.

Resurrection of the Dragons

By Goro Adachi
March 11, 2002

What the…

Very much aware of the symbolic significance of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games as discussed in The Labour of the Sun, I sat down on the night of February 24 to watch its closing ceremony, an openly ritualistic event, to see if there was any ‘clue dropping’. Having recognized the existence of an esoteric undercurrent in the opening ceremony, I was curious as to what kind of encoded ‘message’ might be present in the second ‘ritual’. Of course, my view is that reality itself is an encoded message, or a ‘game’, so this was not anything new; I’m always scanning for clues. But high-impact world events, accidental or not, I have observed, are usually symbolic expressions of important themes that underlie physical phenomena that surround us, hence my special interest in the international event of the Olympics.

t-rex-2.jpg (14085 bytes)

As the two gigantic T-Rex’s at the Olympic stadium were shown on the TV screen, I inevitably went ‘what the…’ I mean, these were clearly out of place and, simply, bizarre (not to say scary). Of course, the exoteric justification (= ‘excuse’) was probably that the general region of Utah has large deposits of dinosaur remains, but still those dinosaurs had almost no apparent relevance to the themes of the ceremony and were just… bizarre. To me, this was a ‘Hermetic device’ having the function of prompting questions consciously or subconsciously. This, in other words, was potentially a ‘clue’ planted, again consciously or subconsciously, by some intelligence.

Messianic Resurrection

Later in the show, the dinosaurs were revealed to be operated from behind the walls (not really, but that was the story line) by the Osmond brother and sister singing ‘We Are Family!…’ By this time, I began to get the gist of the shrouded ‘message’. T-Rex’s are ‘kings’, asrex means ‘king’ and they were certainly the king of dinosaurs. And since the term ‘dinosaur’ means ‘terrible lizard’, the T-Rex could easily be considered a ‘terrible king’, or ‘King of terror’a la Quatrain X-72 discussed in previous articles.

Century X-72
L’an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois,
Du ciel viendra vn grand Roy d’effrayeur:
Resusciter le grand Roy d’Angolmois,
Auant apres Mars regner par bon-heur.
The year 1999 seven months,
From the sky will come a great King of terror:
To resurrect the great King of Angolmois,
Before after Mars to reign by good luck

At the Olympic stadium in Salt Lake City, then, the ‘King of terror’ was symbolically ‘resurrected’ to accord with my previous interpretation that this quatrain, in conjunction with II-41 etc., relates to the 9/11 event and the Winter Olympic Games. Note that this ‘King’ of the Olympics could also easily be viewed as the ‘King of the Rings’ — as the Games are symbolized by the familiar multi-colored five rings — which may be rephrased as the ‘Lord of the Rings’. And The Lord of the Rings is a phrase very much fresh on people’s minds today because of the very popular film by the same title that came out late 2001 after the 9/11 event (it was the first of the trilogy, so it’s an on-going project). [Update: the second volume/installment of The Lord of the Rings is titled ‘The Two Towers‘ (!) and the third ‘The Return of the King’ — needless to say, the correspondence is incredible.] This curious coincidence is compounded by the fact that, in Greek mythology, it is Prometheus, the provider of fire and a version of Saturn-Osiris, that would be considered the ‘lord of the ring’, as we read that:

Finally [Hercules] reached the Caucasus Mountains, where Prometheus had been fettered for thirty years… Zeus had long repented of his punishment, because Prometheus had since sent him a kindly warning not to marry Thetis, lest he might beget one greater than himself; and now, when Hercules pleaded for Prometheus’s pardon, granted this without demur. Having once, however, condemned him to everlasting punishment, Zeus stipulated that, in order still to appear a prisoner, he must wear a ring made from his chains and set with Caucasian stone – and this was the first ring ever to contain a setting… Mankind now began to wear rings in Prometheus’s honour…  (Robert Graves, The Greek Myths, 133.l-m)

This event, remarkably, is said have taken place during Hercules’ journey of the ’11th labor’, i.e. the very labor we have linked to the current world events, including the Olympics (seeThe Labour of the Sun). Note also that the Salt Lake City Games had a very Promethean official slogan/theme, ‘Light the Fire Within‘.

But here we need to take into consideration the idea of ‘family’ musically attached to the kingly dinosaurs. A ‘royal family’ — was this the implication? Or, since the ‘King of terror’ has been equated with Osiris (see Labour), was it an allusion more specifically to the messianic family, i.e. the family of Jesus, the biblical Osiris? To use Christian terminology, it was a symbolic ‘Second Coming”. This association is intriguing as it has been said that Jesus was crucified on a T-shaped cross (the ‘tau’) (Christopher Knight, et al, The Hiram Key, pp.241-2), and thus Jesus, the ‘King of the Jews’, may be described congruently as a ‘T-king’, that is, ‘T-Rex’. And then there is the intriguing fact that the messianic bloodline, signified in medieval literature by the Holy Grail (Sangraal, which can also be translated as ‘Blood Royal’), is entangled with the myths of the ‘Ring’, including The Lord of the Rings:

J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings is one of the most enchanting and successful tales of all time. First issued in the 1950s, this famous trilogy could just as well have emanated from the Dark Ages or medieval times, for it has all the qualities and attributes of the most ancient Grail and Ring traditions.   (Laurence Gardner, Realm of the Ring Lords, p.1)

To express it esoterically, then, it was an allusion to the return of the wounded ‘Fisher King’, or King Arthur, the medieval Osirian-messianic character who is inseparable form the Grail romances. It is fitting that the Gaelic word uther, from which the name ‘Arthur’ apparently derives, means ‘terrible’ (according to Gardner) and Arthur’s father was called ‘Uther Pendragon’ (actually a title) which would mean ‘Terrible head of Dragons’ (though it has also been translated as ‘Wonderful head of Dragons’). The ‘terrible dragons’ are, of course, clearly evocative of the dinosaurs, the ‘terrible lizards’. Traditionally, ‘dragons’ are associated with kingship and crocodiles/serpents; in ancient Egypt, for example, pharaohs were anointed with the fat of the holy crocodile, or ‘Meseh‘ from which derives the term ‘Messiah’, i.e. Jesus/Osiris. Correspondingly, Osiris’ death is associated with a crocodile in Egyptian tradition (E.A. Wallis Budge, The Gods of the Egyptians, vol.II, p.358).

Deux Dieux

The messianic family, stemming from Davidic royal lineage and the offspring of Jesus and Mary Magdalene (i.e. Sangraal) according to esoteric tradition, is said to carry the title, Rex Deus, meaning ‘King of God’ (see Marilyn Hopkins, et al, Rex Deus, 2000). Now, it is curious to notice here that the term ‘Deus’ (God) closely resembles the word for ‘two’ in various European languages. As Boyd Rice writes:

The Latin word for God, Deus, seems to retain a vestige of the ancient understanding of the dual nature of deity. In many languages, the word denoting “Two” has either a spelling or a sound very similar to the word Deus, for instance, deux, dos, dua, deuce, and so forth. This becomes even more explicit when examining the specific terms some of the countries apply to God. For example, the French Dieu [or its plural form, Dieux] echoes deux (two) very closely, and the Spanish Dios is derived from the word dos by the mere addition of an “I.”  (http://www.dagobertsrevenge.com/articles/undivided.html)

This would then nicely relate to the two T-Rex’s of the Olympics and the biblical ‘T-Rex’, Jesus, being a twin (Judas Thomas/Twin was almost certainly Jesus’ twin brother, based on non-canonical sources such as the Acts of Thomas). And, of course, we are reminded here of the twin nature of Hercules, antediluvian pillars, the Sphinx/Horus and such — underlying all of which is the notion of the Sun/Ark/lion, as explained in The Labour of the Sun. (In terms of Nostradamus — who, by the way, may well have been a member of ‘Rex Deus’ — this motif is potently expressed in our ‘two suns’ quatrain, II-41.) Indeed, Rex Deus, or the Messianic bloodline, is Davidic which in turn means the bloodline is of the ‘lion king’ — as the tribal symbol of King David’s, Judah, was the lion. Moreover, the Davidic ‘Fisher King’ is called in Arthurian literature Anfortas (in fortis) meaning ‘in strength’, which is also the Latin name for one of the two pillars of the Temple of Jerusalem (i.e. the ‘Boaz’ pillar). These twin pillars are a version of the antediluvian/Atlantean pillars, the New World version of which was destroyed on 9/11/01. The Catholic theologian Margaret Starbird writes:

The name of this [Boaz] pillar, which is also the name of the ancestor of King David, is a clear and obvious reference to the promises made to the Davidic bloodline, the line of the princes of Judah, that the dominion of its princes would be established forever “in strength,” since Judah was the strongest of the twelve sons of Israel’s patriarch Jacob. The name Anfortas is thus associated with the broken left pillar of the Temple of Jerusalem, which is symbolic of the broken Davidic succession… [T]he “Fisher King” Anfortas — that is, the Davidic “Fish-King” Jesus — can be healed only when the Grail is restored…  (The Woman With the Alabaster Jar, p.86)

The reference to the broken succession/pillar here is interesting as it potentially relates to the fact that the Great Sphinx is missing its ‘twin’ and also to the darkening of the sun (= lion/sphinx/Fisher King) on the day Jesus/Osiris died as per tradition.

All combined, we can derive the symbolic implication that the two towering T-Rex’s signified the resurrection of the messianic king, or Osiris-Horus, the fall of which was earlier expressed by the destruction of the WTC twin towers on 9/11.

Proof of the Vikings

Let’s take a look at Quatrain VI-97 which I have repeatedly correlated with the world events of our own time including the 9/11 attacks.

Century VI-97
Cinq & quarante degrez ciel bruslera
Feu approcher de la grand cite’ neuue
Instant grand flamme esparse sautera
Quand on voudra des Normans faire preuue.
Forty five [or ‘five and forty’] degrees the sky will burn,
Fire to approach the great new city
In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up,
When they want to have proof of the Normans.

This quatrain’s relevance to 9/11 and related events can be summarized as follows. First, ‘five and forty’ (cinq & quarante) of Line 1, if interpreted as 40.5, would correspond to the latitude of New York City where the WTC towers stood. And NYC is insinuated by Line 2 mentioning ‘the great new city’. The abundant references to burning fire, needless to say, evoke the burning towers still hauntingly fresh on our mind. (The “great scattered flame” is actually even evocative of the grand firework show of the Olympic ceremonies.) What is most remarkable, however, is the implication of Line 4: ‘When one will want to want proof of the Normans‘.

mars-typical.jpg (10305 bytes)“Normans” is essentially another name for the Vikings (or ‘Norsemen’). “Viking,” in turn, was the name given to the twinspace probes NASA sent to Mars in 1976 (Viking 1 & 2). This Vikingmission made the very first successful landing on the Red Planet and, more significantly, it gave us the first pictures of the potentially artificial “monuments of Mars” at Cydonia, an issue still very much controversial and relevant today. This association is particularly important here because the Cydonia region of the ‘fireplanet’ is situated approximately at 5°W. 40°N. — that is, “five and forty“! The ‘monuments’ themselves are located on latitude 40.5-41°N., which happens to be the very latitude of NYC _and_ Salt Lake City! As if these weren’t enough, the most prominent features of the Cydonia complex are the popular ‘Face’ and the geometrically sound ‘D&M Pyramid’. pentagon_damage.jpg (16765 bytes)The ‘Face’, as revealed/confirmed in 2001, is ofdual nature, having a hominid side and a leonine side, just as does the Sphinx (= sun, Hercules, ‘Fisher King’) which has a body of the lion and a head of man. (The connection between the two is corroborated by the fact that the tangent of Cydonia’s latitude equals the cosine of the latitude of Giza/Sphinx, both equaling e/pi.) The partially collapsed ‘D&M Pyramid’, on the other hand, is pentagonal — echoed by the U.S. Pentagon partially destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.

Line 4, When one will want to have proof of the [Vikings], then, would have the implication of people wanting to know the truth about Cydonia and/or more generally about the existence of life on Mars. And, sure enough, presently around the turn of the millennium we are rapidly getting more evidence indicative of the existence of past/present life, as well as intelligently designed structures, on the Red Planet. (Most recently, the Mars Odysseyspacecraft gave us, on 3/1/02, more evidence of water on Mars, more pictures of strikingly artificial-looking features, and amazing confirmation of Richard Hoagland’s ‘Mars Tidal Model’ which I consider a brilliant piece of work.)

As it turns out, the ‘Norman/Viking’ reference also nicely brings together 9/11 and ‘Rex Deus’ as we learn that the Viking leader, Rollo (Hrolf), came to France and obtained Normandy(becoming the first Duke of Normandy) in _911_ AD. And Rollo, interestingly enough, was genealogically linked to the ‘Rex Deus’ clan:

[Rollo] extended his lands by conquest and his influence by alliance and marriage with the leading aristocratic families of the time. He sought to establish strong bonds with the local aristocracy and, in particular, matrimonial links with dynasties of the Rex Deus tradition, such as the families of Chaumont, Gisors, d’Evreaux, Blois, the Counts of Champagne and the ruling House of Flanders, whose younger sons were the Counts of Boulogne. Was he [Rollo himself] also Rex Deux, from a family outside the confines of early Christian Europe?  (Hopkins, et al, Rex Deus, p.107)

From this angle, the phrase ‘When one will want to have proof of the Normanswould come to mean ‘when people become aware, and want proof/’resurrection’, of ‘Rex Deus’ or the ‘Grail’/messianic bloodline — that is, our own time.

Now, the ‘resurrection’ of this hidden bloodline/tradition would also imply the fall of the Church as its existence today is the result of the Roman Empire ‘hijacking’ the ‘Fisher King’ tradition. The Catholic Church or Papacy, in other words, is just a poser on the throne with no legitimacy what so ever. The ‘king’ is naked and the people have been too conditioned and timid to openly acknowledge this awkward fact. When the true ‘Fisher King’ is publicly acknowledged, therefore, it would automatically leave the Church and its manipulative doctrine nowhere to go but down. This situation brings us back to Quatrain II-41, the ‘two suns’ prophecy already applied to the current events, the last line of which indicates the fall/shift of the papacy: “When the great pontiff changes his abode.”

In The Labour of the Sun was discussed how Quatrain II-41 pertains to 9/11, the ‘King of terror’ (Fisher King), and the inevitable end of the reign of Pope John Paul II, the ‘Labor of the Sun’ pope, in the near future. Since writing the article, it came to my attention that there is one particular date that may be seen as a window through which the smoldering archetypal story line could potentially manifest itself physically because of intense symbolic convergence. The date in question is May 1st — i.e. ‘May Day’. First, notice that just as the date ‘9-11’ numerically had the implication of emergency (‘911’ being the emergency phone number), ‘May Day’ is similarly the international radiotelephone code used for indicating trouble and requesting help. Second, in Europe May Day is Labor Day which in the United States is celebrated in September (the month of 9/11) — ‘labor’ being a code word for Pope JPII, as well as Hercules’ 11th Labor that has been found to closely relate to 9/11 and Prometheus along with his fire and ring. May Day, in fact, is also the festival of Belenus, the Celtic god of fire and the sun, and a pagan festival of rebirth and renewal. The first day of May, therefore, is a time with strong 9/11 resonance and particularly relevant to the ‘Labor of the Sun’, i.e. Pope JPII, though I am not ready to predict that the papacy will actually suffer a loss on that date.

Update: According US intelligence sources, as reported by The Washington Times (May 13), Islamic terrorists were planning to attack a nuclear power plant and this “was initially scheduled for May 1…” So, there indeed was a high potential for a 9/11-related major incident on May Day 2002.

Echoes of Lost Paradise

Dinosaurs, the kings of the earth at the time, were suddenly wiped out about 65 million years ago. Rocks from outer space, it is often theorized, hit the earth and devastated all life upon the surface. Quite recently, Tom Van Flandern (formerly the Chief of the Celestial Mechanics Branch of the U.S. Naval Observatory) put forward the theory that it was the ‘explosion’ of what he calls ‘Planet V’ between Earth’s orbit and the Asteroid Belt (which is the remnant of the theoretical ‘Planet K’ that exploded about 250 million years ago) that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. The planet Mars, in this radical model, was formerly a satellite of Planet V that survived the catastrophe and became an independent planet. Richard Hoagland’s more recent ‘Mars Tidal Model’ was an extension of Flandern’s ‘Exploded Planet Hypothesis’, and so the new data from the Mars Odyssey probe just released 3/1/02 that dramatically corroborated Hoagland’s theory was also confirmatory evidence for Flandern’s. By inference, then, it may be postulated that those dinosaurs — analogous to the ‘King of terror’, ‘Fisher King’, etc. — and the Red Planet have an inseparable historical connection.

The reader may recall that I have previously stressed the intense correlation that exists between the 9/11-related events and the destruction of the antediluvian world, ‘Atlantis’, in connection with Mars/Cydonia. Here, then, we have the implication that there also is  a link between the prehistoric ‘dragons’ and Atlantis. Remarkably, this strange association actually resonates well with the fact that in ancient traditions the angelic wisdom-providers of the antediluvian paradise, including Osiris, are usually associated with the serpent, i.e. ‘dragons’. The coherence is intensified when it is added that the essence of Osiris was equated in ancient Egyptian theology with the Benben Stone (the capstone of the pyramid/obelisk) which in turn was, or represented, a meteorite — i.e. a rock from outer space (Planet V). Correspondingly, we may recall that, in Mystery, Babylon the Great, the antediluvian tower (Babel) and the Osirian ‘fallen angels’ (Nephilim) were found to be the embodiment of aheavenly stone. And to top it off, the Nephilim were ‘fallen ones’ (as in fallen meteorites), and were also called awwin denoting ‘serpents’ (as in dragons/dinosaurs) and gibborim meaning ‘strong ones’ (as in Davidic ‘Fisher Kings’). The messianic association is echoed strongly by the Holy Grail/Blood Royal: in Wolfram von Eschenbach’s Parzival from around 1200, the Grail is called lapsit exillis which, as lapis ex caelis, means ‘stone from the heavens’!

So we now have entangled themes involving dinosaurs, Exploded Planet Hypothesis, Mars, Atlantis, heavenly stone, messianic tradition… What does this all mean? While I have my own hypotheses, it is wise at this time to just wonder about it rather than force a shortsighted and linearly conceived conclusion out of the partially disjointed pieces of the puzzle. I have faith in the idea of ‘if you ask, the answer will come’. This appears to be how the ‘game’ is played ‘down here’. Truth requires patience, and patience here requires unwavering respect for truth.


turin-shroud.gif (3937 bytes)I’d like to end this article by pointing out that the next Winter Olympic Games (2006) will be held in Turin, Italy. Turin is the home of the single most important and controversial relic associated with Jesus — the Shroud of Turin, the linen cloth in which Jesus was supposedly wrapped after the crucifixion. On the Shroud is seen, somehow, a seemingly photographic image of Jesus. While ostensibly a Christian relic, the Shroud has much to do with the esoteric ‘underground’ tradition that aligns with the ‘Fisher King’ rather than with Pauline counterfeit Christianity headed by the Papacy. Indeed, the Shroud first surfaced soon after the suppression of the medieval warrior-monks, the Knights Templar, who were accused, among other things, of worshipping a strange head — which may well have been the head portion of the Shroud. The first known owner of the relic, Geoffrey de Charney, is in fact thought to be the nephew of Geoffroi de Charney, the Templar preceptor of Normandy who was burned to death with Jacques de Molay, the last Templar Grand Master. And some have theorized, with good reason, that the Shroud was actually created by Leonardo Da Vinci who has been claimed to have been Grand Master of the Priory of Sion, supposedly the parental organization behind the Templar order (see Lynn Picknett, et al, Turin Shroud). The Priory of Sion, extensively discussed in the groundbreaking book Holy Blood, Holy Grail (1982), is practically analogous, or attached, to ‘Rex Deus’. This combined with the fact that the Templar knights in the Grail lore are depicted as the guardians of the Holy Grail/Blood Royal which, in theory (based on “heretical” traditions), stemmed from the dynastic ‘Sacred Marriage’ between Jesus and Mary Magdalene, it may be inferred that the Shroud is in a sense a form of the Grail which in turn represents the hidden messianic succession.

Is it just a coincidence that Turin, the very place where this ‘Rex Dues’ relic rests, has been selected for the next Winter Olympics? Perhaps. But consider the following. Turin is at latitude 45°N. so as to echo the opening line of the ‘Olympic/Martian quatrain’, VI-97 (‘Forty five degrees the sky will burn‘). The last line of the same quatrain, ‘When they want to have proof of the Normans‘, may also now denote ‘when people want to find out the truth about the origin of Christianity, about the suppressed messianic legacy, and about the true nature of the Turin Shroud which was first possessed, as far as we know, by the ‘Normans’ (i.e. the Templar Master of Normandy). The Shroud even resonates with 9/11. The relic, as well as Leonardo/Priory of Sion, is associated with John the Baptist as it is, for example, kept at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin. And the saint’s birthday was celebrated on the summer solstice just as the date 9/11 corresponded in the early Christian times to the original summer solstice day of the ancient Egyptian calendar.

Also, the demonstrated Martian/Cydonian nature of Quatrain VI-97 incites the thought that the head imprinted on the Shroud might relate to the more or less similar-looking ‘Face on Mars’. This is clearly a silly notion — except there are various clues that are supportive of it. This leads into an area that overlaps my ‘other’ research that I do not want to discuss yet. But I’ll just mention two curious coincidences: the Shroud is called sydoine/sindone/sindon in other languages (‘Cydonia’ anyone?), and John the Baptist was decapitated and his severed head became an object/idea of great esoteric importance. This is only a small hint. I don’t want to open Pandora’s Box yet… 🙂 But I will say that Mars/Cydonia anomalies and the Grail-Ark-Shroud-Fisher King theme are to merge in a startlingly direct and elegant way.

The Quest for the Grail is an interplanetary saga.

The Message of Cycle 23

Decoding the Mayan ‘Double-Sun’ Timecode

By Goro Adachi
May 24, 2002


Final Countdown

According to the incredibly sophisticated and accurate calendar of the Maya from Central America, one of the most mysterious ancient civilizations rivaling ancient Egypt, we are currently living in the ‘fifth age of the sun’ which began on August 12, 3114 BC — a date designated the ‘Birth of Venus’. According to Mayan tradition, the previous four ages ended in great cataclysms, leaving only a small number of survivors, not unlike the biblical tale of Noah. This arcane view certainly makes us curious and somewhat nervous about the projected ending date of the current, the fifth, age of the sun. When one finds out when this termination point actually is, the nervousness shoots up into the realm of worry. The Mayan calendar is now even beginning to enter the public consciousness at large, as this very subject was, for example, a key theme incorporated into the final episode of the popular ‘paranormal’ TV show The X-Files aired May 19, 2002. As we get closer to the ending date of the calendar, we are sure to hear a lot more about it from various sources.

On ‘9-11’, the world — and especially the US, the New World — has realized just how a seemingly stable and proud system or world view can be made so fragile and overwhelmed in one day. The possibility of the world crumbling into total chaos is no longer a farfetched movie scenario but a uncomfortably realistic prospect. And just in time for this paradigm shift, the world is to be made aware that ‘the end of the world’ as foreseen by the Maya is rapidly approaching us. On December 22, 2012, about ten years from now, the timeline of the ‘fifth age of the sun’ will terminate. The redden sun has reached the western horizon and is about to go under.

What does this mean? Are we talking about a literal annihilation of human civilization or could it be more metaphorical? No one really knows. It is my view, however, and it is sensible, that the more insights we have into the situation/pattern, the more metaphorical the manifestation of the projected pattern will be. Or in simpler terms — more preparation, less damage.

I am not writing this article out of fear or survivalist mentality, however. (I am not one of those who animalistically think survival is/should be our highest priority.) Instead, I was prompted to write this piece because I detected a significant pattern that coherently links the underlying esoteric themes of today’s events discussed in my previous articles and the Mayan calendar. While I had originally been viewing the projected ending date as something conceptually akin to the equinoxes/solstices — in that they astronomically yield specific dates but only approximately mark the change of seasons — the new findings have pushed me to reconsider my position and theorize that the calendar is counting down to a specific event of profound importance.

The ‘9-11’ event, it now appears, was only a part of the sequence of events leading up to a culmination in/around 2012.

Two Suns, Two Years

It was prophetic Quatrains X-72 and II-41 of Nostradamus, curiously enough, that helped me ‘see the light’.

As explained in depth before in my previous articles (The Labour of the Sun and Rex Deux), X-72’s infamous line, ‘1999 seven months‘, could actually denote ‘2001 September’ for certain calendrical reasons, and the whole quatrain, when decoded, would directly relate to the ‘9-11’ attacks. (See Labour for detail.)

Century X-72
L’an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois,
Du ciel viendra vn grand Roy d’effrayeur:
Resusciter le grand Roy d’Angolmois,
Auant apres Mars regner par bon-heur.
The year 1999 seven months,
From the sky will come a great King of terror:
To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois,
Before after Mars to reign by good luck

The curious 2-year offset between 1999 and 2001 observed here was found to be nicely reflected by various other aspects. For instance, we had the huge ‘II’ shape (i.e. ‘2’) of the WTC twin towers, and the twin nature of Hercules, the mythological character associated with the antediluvian/’Atlantean’ pillars which in turn were discerned to be analogous to the WTC towers. Hercules in particular was found to be of great metaphoric significance for 9-11 — because just as ’11’ was a key number encoded in the whole event (i.e. an airplane Flight 11crashing into a 110-story towers visually forming ’11’ on the 11th day of the month, etc.), it was during Hercules’ ‘11th labor’ that he directly interacted with Atlas (the first king of Atlantis) in Greek mythology — thus reinforcing the view that the ‘Pillars of Hercules’ (= ‘Atlantean’ pillars) represent the archetypal WTC towers. Hercules being a personification of the sun, moreover, resonates well with the fact that the Egyptian death-god Osiris was both associated with the black sun and described as the ‘Lord of Terror‘ as in the ‘King of terror’ of X-72. The correlation becomes stronger when added that there was a major total solar eclipse (i.e. a ‘black sun’) in August of 1999 (= ‘1999’+’7 months’, as per X-72). Also, similarly, the Great Sphinx represented both the embodiment of the sun and the ‘Father of Terror‘.

From these associations, it was inferred that Hercules was both a ‘twin’ and the ‘sun’. And this brought us to the next phase of interpretation involving Quatrain II-41. First, it was determined that Hercules represented, at least in our context, a form of ‘double sun’. This was supported by the sphinx, associated with Hercules, traditionally found in pairs — thus signifying ‘two suns’. And ‘two sun’ could be reasonably interpreted as ‘two years’ to corroborate the ‘2-year offset scheme’ of X-72. After this, we were naturally led to II-41, one of the quatrains I had personally considered applicable to our own era, long before 9/11. Line 2 of the quatrain reads ‘the cloud will make two suns appear‘.

Century II – 41 
La grand’ estoille par sept jours bruslera,
Nuee fera deux soleils apparoir:
Le gros mastin toute nuit hurlera,
Quand grand pontife changera de terroir.
The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will make two suns appear:
The large mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff changes his abode.

Lines 1 and 2 complement the correlation as these strongly evoke the ‘great star’ (the brightest star) Sirius. It is commonly known as the ‘Dog Star’ as in ‘the large mastiff‘ (Line 3), and in ancient Egypt the star was called Sept, which in turn would denote ‘seven’ as in ‘seven days‘ (Line 1). Also, as explained in Labour, Sirius’ heliacal rising — an extremely important astronomical event for the ancient Egyptians — signified ‘the 1st day of the 1st month of Thoth’, which was the New Year’s Day of the ancient Egyptian calendar. During the early Christian times this special day took place on the Gregorian September 11th, and this caused the Coptic/Christian-Egyptian (as well as Ethiopian) calendar to fix its New Year’s Day on September 11 (Gregorian), and this is the case to this day. Sirius, alluded to by II-41, is therefore very much linked to what has now become a date of infamy, ‘9-11’. This consequently implies that the initial ‘double sun’ correlation was indeed valid.

As for Line 4 which indicates a change of the papacy, it was pointed out that the current pope, John Paul II, is given the motto ‘De Labore Solis’ (‘From the Labor of the Sun’) by St. Malachy’s prophetic list of popes. (I personally tend to agree with the view that this remarkably accurate prophetic list was actually composed by Nostradamus.) Needless to say, the motto not only conforms to the underlying ‘sun’ theme, but it even resonates specifically with the aforementioned ‘labor of Hercules’ (since Hercules = sun) the 11th of which was found inseparable from the 9-11 event! Moreover, the motto has also been interpreted to denote ‘Of the Eclipse of the Sun’ (indeed, JPII was born during an eclipse) — in which case, it would again congruently conform to the ‘black sun’ theme and the total solar eclipse of August 1999. So, it was confirmed on multiple levels that there was a strong connection between II-41, X-72, and the 9/11 terrorism.

The prophetic implication of this was that Pope JPII would be replaced by a new pope in the very near future to coincide with the aftermath of 9-11. And seemingly as a foreshadow, the Church, especially in the US, suddenly found itself in serious trouble as we entered the year 2002 (i.e. the sexual abuse scandal). At first, I was just amused to see the apparent manifestation of the projected pattern and wondered how it would culminate in the exit of JPII. Then, something got my attention and it caused a shift in my perspective. I began to see a bigger picture as well a more focused context and pattern for the on-going world events.

Seeing the Light

The more I looked into the 9-11 event, the more ‘prophetic’ it became — both in the sense that it strongly interacted with ‘prophecies’ made in the past and the sense that the event itself was a coded ‘prophecy’ for the future. And as I became more aware of the latter implication, I noticed something that I felt I should have noticed long time ago. This was that by adding ’11’ — the encoded key number of 9/11 — to the year of the event, 2001, one would get ‘2012’, which is none other than the ending date of the Mayan calendar.

Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not. But consider the following. Just as the number ’11’ is found to be inseparable from the sun, so is the Mayan calendar which, as ingeniously decoded by researcher Maurice Cotterell, essentially represents a time-keeping system for the sun, the sunspot activity, which is known to have an 11-year cycle! The fact that the Mayan calendar was also used to calculate and predict solar eclipses adds to the coherence as we have already noted the prophetic significance of the 1999 total eclipse.

In The Mayan Prophecies (1995), Cotterell revealed his remarkable theory that the strange rhythm of the Mayan calendar, which had perplexed all other investigators, actually corresponded with the complex cycles of the solar magnetic fields which in turn would produce ‘sunspots’, the dark spots on the surface of the sun.

It is scientifically known that those sunspots spew out a lot of ions (charged particles) and affect the magnetic field of the earth. More sunspots means more electrical stuff/’solar wind’(solar flares and coronal mass ejections) emitted outward to bombard the earth’s magnetosphere. (The most visible effect of this would be the aurora lights). Every 11 years, the sun reaches a ‘solar maximum’, which is when the number of sunspots peaks, or when the sun is the most active. Presently, in fact, we are undergoing the solar maximum of ‘Cycle 23’ — though the peak was ‘officially’ reached in mid-2000. This means that the next solar maximum will be around 2012, the Mayan ‘end date’!

What made the correlation even more satisfying was the fact that the Mayan calendar was intimately linked to the planet Venus — as evidenced by the fact that the starting date of the Calendar (Aug 13, 3114 BC) is called ‘the Birth of Venus‘. In esoteric tradition, Venus (along with Sirius) is symbolized by a pentagram (five-pointed star). The pentagram is obviously related geometrically to the pentagon — and the ‘Pentagon’ is of course none other than the third building hit in the 9/11 attacks.

What about the 2-year/’double-sun’ offset scheme that has been prophetically linked to 9/11?Remarkably, we learn that the nature of the current solar maximum perfectly echoes this strange theme. First, astronomers have noted that Cycle 23 active at the present has a rare double-peak maximum. It was initially observed that the solar intensity crested, rather prematurely, in April 2000 or so. And then, in early 2002, astronomers started to notice that the sunspots were increasing again seemingly to a equally (if not more) pronounced second peak, almost exactly 2 years after the first peak. So, not only is it a ‘double sun’ maximum, the twin peaks are even ‘two suns’ (2 years) apart! This is a strong sign that we are onto something here.

Actually, as if these weren’t enough, we also find that there was a clear ‘spike’ in the sunspot activity in the month of ‘9/11’ as the graph (right) shows.

The more we look, the more we realize that there is a close relationship between the ‘prophetic’ events of our time and the changing conditions of our sun.

What could all this mean?

It wasn’t long before I began to see further patterns and specific implications. I was to be exposed to a very clear ‘signal’, a ‘message’, that could show us what would likely transpire in the immediate future.
The Equidistant Sequence 

I made a simple timeline on a sheet of paper and then drew in the two ‘double-sun’ schemes — that is, the pair of X-72 (~Aug. 1999) and 9/11/01 separated by 2 years, and the Cycle 23 maximum peaks similarly separated by 2 years (Apr. 2000 and ~Apr. 2002).


This helped me visualize better the chronological mismatch between the two periods. Although I had inferred that the two ‘double sun’ events were connected, these overlapping periods were offset by 8 months. Why? Was this some unintended distortion in the ‘design’ or was this a directive misalignment leading us to the next revelation? I had to explore the latter possibility as I knew from experience that this approach would often lead to productive results. It was warranted especially in this case as there was still a sense of intelligent design in the offset — ‘8 months’ was exactly one third of ‘2 years’. And so I studied the timeline closely to see if there was a further pattern just beneath the ‘surface’.

After some thinking, I recalled that there was another major event that I had already interpreted to be part of the ‘double sun’ theme. This was the 2000 US presidential election — an event that produced two winners or two ‘suns’. The designation of the ‘sun’ here was supported by the fact that, for example, the eye of the storm that was the 2000 election was Florida, the ‘Sunshine State’. Also, in a previous article I identified Clinton as a version of Amenhotep III (historical Solomon) which made his successor a version of Akhenaten (the Egyptian king who followed Amenhotep III), often called the ‘Sun King’. (The ‘two presidents’ therefore had become analogous to ‘two suns’. See The Two Suns of Election MM for more details.)

Subsequently, I realized that the timing of this event was right in the middle of the combined timeframe of the other two ‘double sun’ events. In fact, it was placed at the dead center. To visualize it better, I marked it on the timeline — and immediately emerged a great sense of order. Then it hit me: this third ‘double sun’ event (Dec. 2000) was offset ~8 months from the nearest marked events on both sides. This meant, in other words, that all of the events in the combined sequence, five in all, were equally distanced, 8-month apart!

What made this more remarkable was the fact that the rotation period of Venus, the planet intimately associated with the Mayan calendar, is 243 earth-days — that is, almost exactly 8 months! (30×8=240.) Even Venus’ orbital period around the sun turned out to be 225 earth days (7.5 months), very close to 8 months. [Update: the number ‘225’  reinforces the the 9-11 connection in that 2001 was the 225th year from the birth of US, 1776!] Additionally, there was the complementary fact that the ‘tzolkin‘ cycle of 260 days was an essential element of the Mayan calendar — actually corresponding to the cycle of the interaction between the polar and equatorial magnetic fields of the sun (as pointed out by Cotterell).

These correlations strongly suggested to me that I was on the right track, and encouraged me to proceed further.
Contextual Resonance

To find more encoded patterns, I turned my attention to the first of the ‘double sun’ sequence composite taking place circa Aug. 1999. This was a conceptual ‘preview’ of its ‘second peak’ 2 years later, namely the 9/11 attacks. And this was not only in terms of X-72. Recently in May 2002, it was revealed that the first of the warnings about the coming major terrorist attack, i.e. ‘9/11’, emerged in September 1999, exactly 2 years before 9/11.

So I naturally wondered if this same concept could be applied to the twin peaks of Cycle 23.

First, I had to refresh my memory regarding the world events at the time of the first solar peak in the spring/summer of 2000. Internationally, the major news around that time was the successive collapses of the critical Israel-Palestine peace talks in Israel and later at Camp David (US) mediated by Clinton and Albright (viewed as “the last chance for peace”). Semi-internationally, dominating the news in the same timeframe was the saga of the ‘Cuban boy‘ Elian Gonzales in US who was eventually returned to Cuba. And Cuba was also a significant place esoterically in the summer of 2000 as it was then that the enigmatic underwater ‘city’ off the west coast of Cuba, widely speculated to be the ruins of ‘Atlantis’, was first discovered (investigation still continuing). So, it appeared that the first Cycle-23 peak was very ‘Cuban’ in nature and related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Now it was time to see if the second sunspot peak reflected, or actualized, the ‘warning’ of the first. Since the second peak is taking place right now (spring/summer of 2002), we can actually just look around to see if this may be the case. Though the time ‘window’ is still open as of this writing, we have already witnessed a political focus suddenly placed on Cuba in May. First, there was the historic visit of ex-President Carter to Cuba, which was then closely followed by President Bush addressing the Cuban-Americans in Florida, giving a speech on US-Cuba relations. And then the March and April of 2002 saw a major crisis in Israel, which was so severe that the rest of the world was also polarized and a lot of violence ensued. And we can also add that investigators are returning to the Cuban-“Atlantean” underwater city for more data in the same timeframe, and strangely the captured Taliban/Al Qaeda members are being held at ‘Camp X-Ray’ in Cuba.

So, it appeared to me that there was indeed a conceptual echo effect between the two sunspot peaks. But what about the current crisis of the Church coinciding with the second peak? It turns out that this does have important ‘prophetic’ implications, as we will see.

Extended Projection

Based on the empirical observations, it may be inferred that the 2000 US presidential election will have an ‘echo’ exactly 2 years later and this is scheduled to take place at the end of 2002.

What can this anticipated event be? Obviously, the implication is that there is to be some kind of election/voting that involves a major leader, or simply a change of leadership. One possibility is that the US will have a new president at/around the end of 2002.

[Update: In December 2002, Republican Senate majority leader Trent Lott, i.e. the leader of President Bush’s political party, stepped down unexpectedly amid a big controversy that erupted after he made a seemingly racist statement in the same month. By vote, Bill Frist was quickly elected as new leader of the Republican party.]

Another possibility, which I consider more likely, is that we will see the exit of Pope John Paul II and the election of the next pope. This derives from the close parallel detected between US presidency and the papacy at this moment in history, as discussed in the Two Suns article after all, both are inseparable from Quatrain II-41. And especially because the last line of II-41 states: “When the great pontiff changes his abode“.

[Update: Indeed, in accordance with the suspected parallel, the same period of December 2002 also saw the resignation of Cardinal Law of Boston Archdiocese (who is specifically named in this article below). It is very interesting that although the US President and the Pope survived the ‘December window’, the leaders just below them (Lott and Law) did make their exit concurrently. Certainly, then, we did indeed experience “a change of leadership” in the US and the Church in this December.]

It should also be pointed out that the prophetic motto assigned to Pope JPII, ‘of the Labor of the Sun‘, directly associates him with the current solar maximum which indeed is a ‘labored’ state of the sun. Combined with the pronounced twin peaks of Cycle 23 (i.e. ‘double sun’), it seems inevitable that JPII comes to be involved in the current cycle… probably by making his exit.

There is another reason why the papacy/Church is likely to ‘fulfill’ the 2-year offset ‘echo’ of the 2000 presidential election. For this, we need to project the sequence backwards just one step toward the past. By subtracting ‘8 months’ from the first event, Aug. 1999 (X-72), we arrive at December 1998. Importantly, this is exactly two years away from the presidential election — thus effectively making it a ‘reverse-echo’ event. So what happened in December 1998? The answer is: the historic impeachment of President Clinton. Needless to say, there is strong resonance here; after all, the impeachment was conceptually close to the presidency ending. This was the little ‘preview’ of the succeeding events in the 2-year cycle.

Now, what is important here is what led to Clinton’s impeachment. It was, of course, the president’s sexual misconduct (involving a young intern, Monica Lewinsky), the news of which broke in January of the same year (on Drudge Report). Therefore, if we are to expect an amplified ‘echo’ in/around December 2002 of the ‘impeachment’, it is reasonable to theorize that it is also to be preceded by a similar (but more serious) development, i.e. a serious sexual scandal. Could it be just coincidence that we are currently having the developing story of the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests? The current scandal even began in January when Father Geoghan was convicted of sexually abusing a boy on January 18 (the news of Clinton’s sex scandal broke on Jan. 19, ’98). This strongly suggests that things are moving toward the ‘impeachment’ (i.e. the end) of the leadership of the Church, i.e. the Pope, near the end of 2002. (Although it is also possible to interpret the ‘leader’ as an American Cardinal namely Cardinal Law of Boston).

[Update: As already mentioned, Cardinal Law, named above, did step down in December 2002, in precise accordance with the projection! In retrospect, it appears that the ‘echo effect’ in this December window was not an ‘amplified’ but downgraded (by just one step) event. Did the number of people aware of the pattern reached a critical mass to slightly alter the pattern?]

Personally, I find it very unlikely that Pope JPII will stay in his office beyond 2002 (spring of 2003 at the latest), because as the ‘Labor of the Sun’/’Solar Max’ pope, it won’t be symbolically very coherent for him to make his exit when the sun has become quiet. As he came into this world during a solar eclipse (another manifestation of the expression ‘labor of the sun’), it would be symmetrically sound for him to exit in a similar symbolic context. My bet, therefore, is on the current development leading directly or indirectly to the pope leaving the office later this year. And it is very possible, as explained in my previous articles, that the subsequent papal election will produce ‘two suns’, either by ending up with two contenders claiming to be the pope, or something else similar in concept.
It’s the End of the World as We Know It, and I Feel Fine.’

Looking back, the controlled demolition of the Russian space station Mir in spring 2001 was eerily prophetic in that the name Mir means ‘peace’ and thus the end of Mir symbolically denoted the ‘end of peace’, which indeed was to be the case just several months later on 9/11. I was actually very much aware of this doomy symbolism of the planned destruction ofMir as early as 1999. In the Two Suns article, for example, I wrote: “since the name Mir means ‘peace’, the end of Mir has the ominous symbolic implication of the ‘end of peace’“. And I had also noted that “the name Solomon, deriving from salaam, [also] means ‘peace’“. This is important for in the same article I conceptually equated both Clinton and Pope JPII with Solomon (or Amenhotep III). Hence the ‘end of peace’ predicted by Mir and realized on 9/11 was also hinting at the imminent ‘end of Pope John Paul II’. And congruently, we have earlier compared the pope’s end to the ‘end’ (i.e. impeachment) of the other ‘Solomon’, Clinton.

Even more ominously, the term ‘Mir’ can also denote ‘world’, which means that the destruction of Mir was also the ‘end of the world’. Perhaps this implication is applicable to the next solar maximum (Cycle 24) in 2012, when the world ends according to the Mayan calendar. It may be inferred that the sequenced events of the Cycle 23 solar max represent the ‘watered down’/metaphoric preview of what is take place with the next peak of the sun that will in effect end the world.

My take on the coming ‘end of the world’ is this. Based on the ‘message’ of Cycle 23, it is possible to infer that what is to end in the next solar cycle, 24, would be the United States and the Catholic Church — the two that have come to parallel each other in a prophetic context. In line with this interpretation, the pope list of St. Malachy has only two (possibly one) more popes to go after the current one. And as for America, I have other tangible data (which I won’t discuss here) that strongly suggests that the United States’ time is up at the beginning of the 21st century. Basically here is how I tend to look at the situation: the United States and the Church hit the iceberg during the peak of Cycle 23 (2001 +/-2 yr) and are now taking on water; and by the time of the peak of Cycle 24 around 2012, these titanic ‘ships’ will have gone vertical, sinking straight down to the bottom of the abyss. I’m not saying that these systems will cease to exist completely, but I would say at least their ‘essence’ will not be in existence soon after the end of this decade.

There is, however, a little light of hope in all this. The function of Mir did not simply cease to exist; it was smoothly passed on to a new space station, the ISS (International Space Station) which is currently under construction and orbiting the earth. In other words, the symbolic message seems to be that this is a time when the ‘old world’ ends and the ‘new world’ begins. This is a time of transition, not the end. It is certainly fitting that the name ‘ISS’ is reminiscent of ‘ISIS’, the Egyptian goddess of rebirth and the personification of Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky. Indeed, as already mentioned, the day of the ‘rebirth’ (heliacal rising) of Sirius would correspond to the symbolic ‘end date’, 9/11. Like the phoenix, then, from the ashes of destruction is to rise the next incarnation to usher in the new age. (Here we come, Mars!)

Perhaps we are to learn from the ‘message of Cycle 23’ so that the ‘end of the world’ that the coming peak of Cycle 24 is scheduled to bring about will not necessarily have to be so literal. The more we become aware, the less physical/literal the manifestation of the pattern becomes. [Update: Was this concept demonstrated in December 2002?] Mankind, as is the sun, is in labor, and the best we can do is to properly prepare – mentally, physically, emotionally, and intellectually – for the inevitable. The pain will grow in intensity, but it won’t have to be deadly. It’s just that it’s darkest before dawn.
