The View From the Tower


October 29, '03   Burning Bush
This is quite amazing what's happening now. Since Oct. 16 I had been pointing at the date Oct. 25/26, along with Nov. 8/9, as a special 'Mars day' echoing the time (March) of the beginning of the Iraq war. How fitting that what transpired over the weekend (Oct. 24-26) is... all about fire! While Mars is the planet/god of war, it is also traditionally the planet of fire, after all.

As I wrote in the post of Oct. 21: 'Oct. 25 is a clear echo-date of the beginning of the Iraq war on March 20'. I then went on to point out:

This is not to say that we'll see another war breaking out on Oct. 25. There are many possibilities... [...] But the potential is clearly there for a very meaningful event to take place at that time (Oct. 25-27). So... let's wait and see what happens.

Well, we waited and saw what happened. The projected 'echo' of the war and Mars came in the slightly transposed form of 'fire'. On Oct. 24/25, one of the leading news stories was a major solar storm directly hitting the earth. This was an unexpected event since the Sun is currently supposed to be quieting down - having already reached the sunspot cycle peak in 2000.

The Sun is a major player in the pattern we've been following. Just take a look at the titles of my articles: 'The Two Suns of Election MM', 'The Labour of the Sun', and 'The Message of Cycle 23' (Cycle 23 = solar cycle). And the subtitle of the most recent Endgame article (Endgame V), 'On the Chariot of the Sun'. I also seem to have dropped a 'hint' at the very end of Endgame IV: Stargate 2003, where I wrote 'I sense a big storm coming...', immediately following which was a picture of the sun. Go take a look at it for amusement. :)

The Sun is woven into various themes we've been tracking, but the oldest and most consistent one is that of the 'two suns'/'double sun'. And this directs our attention to the double-ness of the current solar storm, as reported on a Space.com article titled 'Seeing Double: Astronomers Amazed at Two Huge Sunspots':

An unusually active Sun has professional astronomers amazed while amateurs revel in backyard sightings of two Jupiter-sized sunspots. Meanwhile, a heavy dose of space weather buffeted Earth midday Friday, and more stormy weather is on the way.

The mention of Jupiter is conceptually hyperlinked to another space news that emerged concurrently with the above. It has to do with a 'mystery spot' observed on Jupiter. As reported on Space.com:

Astronomers have spotted a strange, obvious and inexplicable black spot near the equator of Jupiter. A picture of the object was circling this planet electronically this week as researchers scratched their heads about what they'd found.

Now, isn't it curious that Jupiter is inseparable from the notion of 'two suns' via the sequel of the movie '2001', '2010', in which Jupiter is transformed into a second sun? The fact that the Oct. 25/26 window is related to our 'stargate window' (summer/fall '03) which in turn is an 'echo window' of the year 2001 (~September) makes this something hard to ignore. And I had already associated the plutonium-carrying Galileo spacecraft's 'suicide' plunge into Jupiter's atmosphere on Sept. 21 this year with the 2001/2010 movie theme. I even associated it with the autumnal equinox (Sept. 23), which was another 'Mars/Horus day'. (See Oct. 16 update.)

So there is definitely a sense that the Jupiter-sized double sunspot appearing on the face of the Sun ('484' and '486') may signify 'two suns'. And we are presently awaiting the imminent arrival of the second, much more powerful (the third biggest on record) solar flare/CME produced by the other big sunspot ('486'). (The one arriving at the beginning of the weekend was from Sunspot 485, if I'm not mistaken.) The scheduled time is sometime today. This is what spaceweather.com posted yesterday:

EXTREME SOLAR ACTIVITY: One of the most powerful solar flares in years erupted from giant sunspot 486 this morning at approximately 1110 UT. The blast measured X17 on the Richter scale of solar flares. As a result of the explosion, a strong S3-class solar radiation storm is underway. Click here to learn how such storms can affect our planet. The explosion also hurled a coronal mass ejection (CME) toward Earth. When it left the sun, the cloud was traveling 2125 km/s (almost 5 million mph). This CME could trigger bright auroras when it sweeps past our planet perhaps as early as tonight.

So clearly, the Sun is going crazy at this time. And as the graphs below show, this surprising solar chaos presently taking place began on/around our 'Mars day', Oct. 25/26!

Now, in my last post (Oct. 24), I wrote this near the end:

...I'm already beginning to hear some interesting things. Major solar flares (or coronal mass ejections) are headed our way, scheduled to arrive this weekend... George W. Bush is also scheduled to fly back into the United States, back from his 8-day tour of Asia, later today.

At the time I couldn't quite put it together into a unified picture, but now I'm beginning to detect a coherent 'story' encoded into these events. And this may be very much relevant to the 'twin date' of Oct. 25/26 - i.e. November 8/9. (See previous updates for explanation.)

First, let me remind you that Bush in my model is a 'Sun king' in that, for example, he appears to be a version of the notorious Egyptian 18th-dyanisty pharaoh Akhenaten (or 'Moses'). I have also associated Bush with the theme of 'two suns' ever since the infamous 2000 presidential election (as made clear in my 'Two Suns' article written back then). And In Endgame V, I finally - but not for the first time - associated the 'stargate window' (summer/fall '03) with the 'fall' of Bush along with the other interchangeable 'Babylon leaders' like the Pope, Blair, etc.

I have also repeatedly overlaid the mythical story of Phaėthon, the son of the sun-god Helios, upon the current situation faced by Bush. The story, again, goes like this:

The chariot of the sun was owned by his father Helios, who wouldn't let his son ride it because this was just too dangerous. But Phaėthon strongly insisted and was eventually able to get his father's permission. The result was inevitable – he quickly lost control, and now the world was in danger of being set on fire. This dire situation prompted Zeus to strike Phaėthon with his thunderbolt, which threw him off the chariot. And like a shooting star Phaėthon fell into the stream of Eridanus. The Eridanus thus became the grave of Phaėthon.

Like Phaėthon, the Bush administration with its war-like ways has certainly created a situation where the world is facing a serious threat of being 'set on fire' - symbolically speaking. And this imagery is now being intensified by the great California fires which have become a major disaster situation over the weekend, i.e. during our 'Mars day' window. This was yet another major 'fire' event to emerge during the 'day for fire' (remember: Mars = 'fire planet').

Undoubtedly, the spreading California fires became one of the the biggest international stories starting last weekend (Oct. 25-26). The outgoing California governor Gray Davis even described it potentially the worst disaster ever experience by the state.

Along with the sun flares, the west coast inferno asserted itself as the 'signature event' of the big 'Mars/fire day'. It is certainly very fitting that the location was California, as Arnold Schwarzenegger, the newly elected governor getting ready to replace David there, is someone I had quickly identified as an 'antichristic' figure comparable to the 'sun-king' Bush. In the previous post, for instance, I made this observation:

Immediately before leaving for Japan, Bush met with Schwarzenegger on Oct. 16. This was also in the midst of the Pope's 25th anniversary celebration week. To me, it almost seems as if Bush's meeting with Arnie and leaving the United States was symbolically conveying the idea of passing the torch of 'kingship' (well... 'antichrist-ship').

And as mentioned earlier, Bush's return to the US from his 8-day Asia tour on Friday coincided with the beginning of the chaos on the Sun and in California. There is something eerily ritualistic about all this. And we can't miss the connection between California being set on fire and Phaėthon, the 'son of the sun' theorized to be embodied by Bush, almost setting the world on fire by riding the 'chariot of the sun' across the heavens which he could not control. Bush flying around for eight days in Asia is very much evocative of Phaėthon riding the heavenly sun chariot.

It is quite easy to conceptualize that the California fires were set by the out-of-control sun (chariot), in terms of symbology. Bush the sun-king was flying around on the plane - the 'chariot' - and just as he returns to the US, the Sun hurls a major flare/fire at Earth, and California is set on fire... In addition, we can't miss the nice 'burning Bush' pun lurking there... which is quite multi-leveled. (Recall that Bush is a version of Akhenaten or Moses.)

Now, following the paralleling story would lead to the 'fall of Phaėthon' caused by Zeus who struck him down with his thunderbolt to save the world. (Zeus is Jupiter, by the way...) Phaėthon fell into the stream of Eridanus, which became his grave. In my previous update I associated this with 'Wormwood', a 'bitter' star that falls into the waters of the earth, mentioned in the biblical Book of Revelation 8:11. The chapter/verse number '8:11' is something I interpreted as being relatable to the date 8 November, which should 'echo' the events of Oct. 25/26 according to the model we're following.

So is this what we are looking at in the near future - perhaps around Nov. 8/9? The 'fall of Phaėthon'? The fall of Bush/White House?

It should be mentioned that the 'Mars day' weekend saw major attacks against the occupation forces in Iraq. It began with rocket attacks on a big hotel where US deputy defense secretary Paul Wolfowitz, one of the neo-conservative architects of the Iraq war, was staying. It appears it was the first major and very public assassination attempt against US leadership. And it was followed by numerous bombings in Baghdad leaving many Iraqis and others dead. This was one of the most violent series of events experienced since the 'end' of the war prematurely declared by Bush on May 1. Well, I'd say fitting events for a 'Mars/war day'.

Because of the strong and growing resistance movement in Iraq demonstrated by those recent attacks, the Bush administration is now being forced to adjust its strategy in Iraq. They are increasingly on the defensive and under increasing pressure. (Bush can thank his neo-con lunatics, especially Cheney, the biggest cancer dwelling in the White House...) That those 'Mars day' attacks in Iraq were an important development in the big picture has been expressed by news articles such as this in The Independent that states:

The carnage showed how America has failed to gain control of Iraq six months after its invasion. It also signalled a decisive moment in the Iraqi crisis, which has become the supreme test of Washington's power in the world.

And in The Straits Times we similarly read:

The four suicide attacks in Baghdad yesterday and the rocket attack on Sunday are testing the notion of whether the American military administration in Iraq can ever assert control over a spiralling anarchy... The target of an early Sunday morning rocket attack... almost certainly was US Deputy Defence Secretary Paul Wolfowitz... Reports said he emerged shaken, though unhurt. Such a visage of a White House insider most closely allied with the justification for war will have a numbing impact on Washington's power elite, whatever Mr Wolfowitz may say about 'impressive progress' being achieved in rebuilding Iraq.

Adding to this is the rapidly growing pressure exerted on the White House to release certain 9/11-related documents. It was right on Oct. 25, the 'Mars day', that we heard the news reports stating that the chairman of the federal commission investigating 9/11 was losing patience with the stonewalling tactics of the White House and that he was preparing to subpoena the documents soon. Clearly, the White House has something to hide (everyone know it, come on now), and of course they still have the justice department probing them over the deadly serious Wilson/CIA leak incident.

If the hidden facts are finally revealed, the White House will be exposed as an utterly incompetent, irresponsible, deceptive, dangerous, and treasonous group of people (especially Dick Cheney and his neo-con minions). They would fall.

So we have now in front of us the question of whether this 'fall' will come or begin during the Nov. 8/9 window directly linked to Oct. 25/26 in our model. The situation is still quite fluid. For instance, the 'fall' can still manifest through other 'Babylon leader' figures such as the Pope, etc.

Also, it is intriguing and likely relevant here that the emergence of new revelations concerning the death of princess Diana - e.g. that she predicted her own death/murder - closely coincided with all the events discussed above. Notice that 'Diana' is the name of a mythological Moon-goddess. This makes her death analogous to the 'death' of the Moon which in turn would be expressed by a total lunar eclipse, i.e. when the Moon suddenly disappears from the night sky. And we'll indeed have a total lunar eclipse on Nov. 8/9. Hmm...

Of course, it may well be that we'll have more major solar flares around Nov. 8/9 or something more straightforward like that. Although we have narrowed down possibilities and refined the context using the events of the first 'Mars day' window (Oct. 25/26), it is still hard to say the decoding done above is sufficient enough to effectively foresee the coming events on/around the twin 'Mars day' (Nov. 8/9).

And an additional, tricky factor involved here is the fact that the date of Nov. 8/9 is already attracting a lot of attention in the astrological/New Age communities (who see the date as the time of what they call the 'Harmonic Concordance'). Since people's anticipation can affect future events greatly (in the 'matrix'), we'll have to carefully take this into account. It may add extra twists to the 'echo' that'll require us to do more interpretations or decoding.

At any rate, we have more time to mull over all this. I'll of course have more to say and you'll read it here on Etemenanki. The quite dramatic confirmation of the projected significance of the 'Mars day' window (Oct. 25/26) is a very encouraging sign that we're on the right track so far. Stay tuned...

October 24, '03   'Babylon Is Fallen...'
The World Trade Center twin towers destroyed on 9/11/01 represented the modern version of the tower of Babel - or the 'stargate' of Babylon. This has been one of the central themes discussed on this website since October 2001, starting with the article Mystery, Babylon the Great. From the beginning, the theme was found to be intertwined with Mars and the notion of the Great Flood. By the middle of 2002, I detected a 2-year cycle pattern lurking behind a series of key events surrounding 9/11, and this led me to pinpoint the period around September 2003 as the 'echo window' of 9/11 coming 2 years later (see Endgame IV etc.).

Various symbolic clues caused me to call it the 'stargate window' earlier this year, and in the Endgame series I derived a number of themes that appeared to be relevant to the window. One of the most persistent themes found concerned the Nazis and the Egyptian mythological concept of the 'Osirian resurrection' (the archetypal story of the resurrection or the 'second coming' of the Messiah). As I wrote in Endgame IV (May 19, '02):

Somehow, there seems to be a connection between the coming Osirian resurrection and... well, the Third Reich, the 'Beast'. You could say that we're talking about an 'anti-Christ', to use a Christian term.

As it turned out, this projection was quite effectively fulfilled by one of the biggest events during the 'stargate window' - Arnold Schwarzeneger running in and winning the 'Total Recall' California election (completed on Oct. 7). As extensively discussed in the Aug. 20 and Sept. 17 updates here, it is no coincidence that Arnie's alter ego is the 'Terminator', 'Barbarian', and 'Destroyer' through his films with those epithets in their titles. (In the biblical Book of Revelation, the antichristic/Beast figure is called Abaddon/Apollyon, which means 'destroyer'.) And as widely publicized during the recall election circus, Schwarzeneger has a 'Nazi problem' (he admired Hitler's leadership, his father was a Nazi, etc.). More intriguingly, one of Arnie's movies, 'Total Recall', which has a perfect title for the California recall election, was all about Mars. These are just some of the 'clues'.

Lest you think this association was done all in hindsight, allow me to present you with this - the closing statement in the article Mystery, Babylon the Great, which I wrote just a month after 9/11 in 2001 (Oct. 25):

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

So even this poetic expression based on my perception of the big pattern from the fall of 2001 was directly 'echoed' exactly 2 years later.

Just to reinforce the point regarding hindsightedness vs. foresightedness, let me point out again that, unlike those who went back to sleep after the Y2K non-event (to which I didn't pay much attention to begin with), I had anticipated the world-changing events of 9/11 that ushered in a new era for the United States before it took place. On Feb. 2, 2000 (i.e. when most people were beginning to relax), I stated the following on this website:

Now, I'm not sure if I want 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'.

Note that I didn't say anything so generic like 'a big event will happen in the US'. But I said 'one of the biggest events the [US] has ever experienced [is coming in 2000/2001]' - and that's what happened on 9/11/01. It was actually a prediction based on my Time River Theory (see the book The Time Rivers or The Adachi Report), the validity of which I was already quite certain about even back then.

At any rate, apart from the 'Total Recall' election, there were also events during the 'stargate window' that reflected the Mars-nuke theme which I had attached to the window. As I wrote in Endgame IV (5/19):

Nukes and Mars... Something about this combination that is somehow relevant to our immediate future. [...]
[W]e're looking at some kind of 'nuclear event'. Metaphorical or literal - we don't know. [...]

On the climax day of the stargate window, at least in terms of the brilliant presence of Mars in the night sky, falling on the date August 27, there was indeed a 'nuclear event'... a symbolic one. On that very day major international nuke talks began, designed to deal with the growing North Korea nuclear threat.

Intertwined with this is another aspect of the Osirian resurrection theme, discussed in Endgame V (June 22):

So the implication would be that the coming 'stargate window' is to involve the 'death of Bush'. But this doesn't have to be taken literally. The apparent essence of the message with regard to Bush is 'this is the end of the road'.

Until mid-summer, Bush was a very popular figure, at least according to the polls. The situation has dramatically changed since then. Now, the growing perception is that Bush is going to be another one-term President like his father. Nothing is working for Bush: the insane neo-con 'Pax Americana' war strategy has failed miserably as any rational person could have predicted, and there is now a new 'Watergate' underway.

The criminality of this new 'Watergate' is so clear and offensive that it's widely viewed as an unprecedented act of treason by the White House/administration. I'm of course talking about 'treasongate' involving the White House's illegal leak that blew the cover of an undercover CIA operative (a 'NOC'), seriously endangering her and her associates. Worse, the leak was done and encouraged as a revenge against former ambassador Joseph Wilson (the CIA operative's husband) who exposed the deception of the Bush administration, specifically its lie about Iraq's attempt to obtain 'yellowcake' nuclear material from Niger.

Treasongate has to do with an illegal leak, but it directly stems from the issue of the administration lying about Iraq's nuclear ambition. Treasongate is therefore also a 'nuclear event'. It is still a developing situation, but the indications are that it is so appalling a crime committed by White House/administration officials that it will probably not end without the White House being knocked out. It looks like 'the end of the road' for them indeed.

Oh, and let me also note that there is now much chatter about the aura of Nazism surrounding the Bush administration. As The Free Press recently reported:

US Senator Robert Byrd, on the floor of Congress, on October 17, has explicitly compared the Bush media operation to that run by Herman Goering, mastermind of the Nazi putsch against the German people.

On the same day, the Associated Press ran a national story linking Prescott Bush to Adolf Hitler. The lead read: "President Bush's grandfather was a director of a bank seized by the federal government because of its ties to a German industrialist who helped bankroll Adolf Hitler's rise to power, government documents show." [...]

What's going on here? Are these stories linking Team Bush to the Nazis irrelevant? Mere partisan politics? Or do they indicate a growing public concern with what is actually happening in Washington? [...]

Given the horrific reality of what the GOP is now doing to America and the world, we should be profoundly thankful that the public is uneasy. If Team Bush objects to being compared with the Nazi elite, perhaps it should act less like it.

Who would've thought we'd be hearing so much about the Nazis this summer/fall, eh? But it was big part of the pattern projected for the 'stargate window'.

Okay, so that's the quick history lesson. I just wanted to illustrate where Etemenanki is at this point before delving into more discussions about future events. Sometimes it's helpful to do this... especially for new Etemenanki readers.

Now I'd like to talk more about the Mars echo windows - especially the twin windows of Oct. 25/26 and Nov. 8/9 coming up very soon. In this update, we're going to get a little biblical.

First, let me go back to the issue of Schwarzenegger playing the role of the 'Destroyer' (Antichrist/Beast). Arnie is the 'Terminator' and 'Conan the Destroyer'. In the Bible, the 'Destroyer' reference (i.e. Abaddon/Apollyon) is found in 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, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

The numerical coincidence of '9:11' is more than a little curious. This is so especially when added that a very similar passage is found in Revelation 20:3 which says:

And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

The numerical significance here is that '20:3' would correspond to 3/20, i.e. March 20. This is when the US invasion of Iraq began earlier this year - a direct consequence of 9/11... an 'echo'. As I repeatedly explained before, Mars has a roughly 2-year orbital cycle and is thus related to the 2-year cycle pattern that is behind the stargate window. Looking at the Red Planet's positioning in the sky relative to the background stars as viewed from Earth, however, we realize that it returned to the same place where it was on 9/11/01 earlier in March '03, the month of the beginning of the Iraq war.

Looking at it more closely, we realized that the '9/11 return' of Mars came on March 7. This was about two weeks before the actual date of the war's beginning. But I discovered that the 13-day discrepancy precisely corresponded to a half cycle (13.5 days) of the Moon's sidereal orbital period around the earth (27.32 days). This means Earth would be exactly at the same position as the Moon of March 20 in relation to the background stars, if Earth was seen from the Moon 13 days before March 20 (i.e. March 7).

On that basis, I was quite satisfied to conclude that the Red Planet's '9/11 return' on March 7 and the Iraq war beginning on March 20 were connected very coherently. The fact that March 20 was the spring equinox and that the Great Sphinx at Giza, a 'Martian monument', faces due east to directly stare at the equinoctial sunrise underscored the validity of the linkage. (And of course, Mars is traditionally the planet/god of war.)

Because March 20 can be seen as a '9/11 echo date', Revelation's 20:3 passage (= 3/20) echoing the 9:11 passage (the beast of the 'bottomless pit') in the same book could not be more appropriate. True, the order of the numbers used for establishing the corresponding dates are reversed (9:11 for 9/11 and 20:3 for 3/20), but it's actually the former approach, 9:11=9/11, that's the exception. As we'll see, the 'standard' method turns out to be consistent with the 'day:month' format.

For starters, turning 9/11 into 11:9 will lead us to Genesis 11:9 which just happens to be a passage mentioning the tower of Babel, the archetypal model for the WTC twin towers destroyed on 9/11!:

Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

'Babel', from which derives 'Babylon', means 'gate of God' - i.e. a 'stargate'.

Notice that Genesis is the very first book in the Bible whereas Revelation is the very last. Alpha and Omega. Beginning and end. It's somehow these two books that continue to give us passages that fit right into the pattern of our dates and themes.

A good example is Revelation 14:8 which mentions the destruction of 'Babylon' (a la 9/11):

And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

The passage number here '14:8' gives us 8/14, i.e. August 14. One of the biggest events of the stargate window this summer was the massive blackout of the US eastern coast, prominently affecting NYC, the American 'Babylon'. The date? August 14!

What's more interesting is that August 14 is exactly 13 days away from August 27, the climax of the Red Planet's historic close encounter with the Earth. So like the two 9/11-related dates, 3/7 and 3/20 separated by 13 days, August 14 was also a 'Mars day' and this is somehow acknowledged by our 'Genesis-Revelation code'.

13 days... Could there be more to this than what we've found? Well, it turns out... Yes! Today we use the Gregorian calendar, which replaced the less accurate Julian calendar. As it happens, there is now a 13-day difference between the two calendars! So, in other words, the March 20 of the Gregorian calendar is the March 7 of the Julian calendar. Hence, March 20 equals March 7, and August 14 equals August 27!

So through this scheme it could easily be said that the Iraq war did start on the precise date pinpointed by the '9/11 return' of Mars. The Martian connection is clear there. But what about the blackout of August 14? Why should it be associated with the peak of Mars' close approach to Earth on August 27?

The first potential answer here has to do with, again, the Moon, i.e. the celestial object closely associated with the 13-day offset of the dates. We find that the climax of the Mars light show coincided with a 'New Moon' - meaning there was a 'blackout' of the Moon on Aug. 27 because it was situated exactly between the Sun and the earth. This will become more meaningful later.

The second connection, which I find both compelling and implausible, involves the alien-disk crop glyph, i.e. the driving force behind the discussions of the Endgame series. I'm of course referring to the remarkable (and likely man-made) crop glyph mysteriously created in England last year... on August 14. As discussed in the Endgame articles, the design of the crop glyph was probably borrowed from a logo used on the 'Watcher website', which deals with the subjects of prophecies, Mars/Cydonia, the Antichrist, etc. (See image comparison below.)

The masterfully created glyph was the third one in the 'ET Contact' series that apparently began in 2000. The three glyphs all appeared in the same field and practically on the same date (around Aug. 14) three years in a row. Because of this continuity, expectations were high this year that we would see an incredible fourth installment of the series. But what happened was - nothing. Not just this 'Contact' series. There was a very unusual total blackout of crop circles in England this summer. Most observers were simply perplexed.

Personally, I couldn't help but think that the Aug. 14 blackout in the US was on some level conceptually linked to the crop glyph 'blackout' of this year... especially in light of the precise 'Aug. 14' connection.

An unwarranted hypothesis? Not really. We only need to take a look at how it relates to the calendrically shifted date of Aug. 14, i.e. August 27 (= Julian Aug. 14).

In the first Endgame article, I discussed what appeared to be a 'leak' by an 'insider' posted on the former message board of Richard Hoagland's Enterprise website. (Hoagland is the author of The Monuments of Mars, a popular book about the 'Face on Mars' and other anomalies of Mars/Cydonia.) The post by 'KBS' included only a series of numbers that was hyperlinked to a webpage displaying the 2002 'alien disk' crop glyph. Soon another poster there (perhaps the same 'insider') decoded the numbers and found the following encoded message: 'HaPPy AnNiVerSaRy, HoAglAnd'.

In Endgame IV, I explained how I was finally able to understand its meaning. The key: the message was posted on August 27 ('02). And with the mention of 'anniversary', meaning 'returning with the year at a stated time', it became clear to me that it was pointing ahead to the August 27 of the following year, 2003 - the exact date of the Mars climax day! Since Hoagland is a guy inseparable from Mars, there was no question that this was the intended message.

The implication is remarkable: it directly unites the dates August 14 and August 27! The alien crop glyph, to which the coded message was hyperlinked, was created on Aug. 14 (= Aug. 27 Gregorian); and the message itself was posted on Aug. 27 (= Aug. 14 Julian) and pointed ahead to the Aug. 27 of 2003.

There is now virtually no doubt left that the 'blackout' of Aug. 14 was a 'Martian' event that's to be seen together with Aug. 27.

But I'm not done yet. On [or at least very near] the predicted 'Hoagland anniversary' day (8/27/03), Richard Hoagland happened to publish his new paper on his website, presenting a new picture of the 'Face on Mars' taken by the Odyssey spacecraft currently orbiting Mars. ('Odyssey' as in the film, 2001: A Space Odyssey.)

Hoagland begins the paper by stating:

This startling new image of the well-known "Face on Mars" (above [right]) may ultimately be regarded as one of the most important photographs of the entire Space Program. For, after almost 30 years of acrid controversy and debate, a "whole new side" to this perplexing Martian mystery - and the profound social and scientific questions it continues to present - has now literally dawned...

He goes on to discuss how the lighting of the rising sun reflected on the eastern side of the 'Face' reveals a new mystery, an inexplicable amount of reflectivity. The paper is all about the brightly lit right half of the Face.

Well, take another look at the alien crop glyph. Does it not show only the right side of the face lit by light? The correspondence is unmistakable. This effect is even evident in the alien logo from the 'Watcher website' shown earlier... Can you say 'prophetic'?

Ah, but there is more. :)

So far we've analyzed two sets of dates, the March 20/March 7 paring and the August 27/August 14 paring. Now let us move on to another pair... October 25/26 and November 8/9. In the previous updates I explained in depth why these two dates are to be considered 'Mars days'. And, yes, they are separated by 13/14 days - making them calendarically equatable dates.

The significance of Oct. 25/26 derives from a combination of several things. First, there will be a Sun-Moon-Earth alignment (i.e. New Moon) on Oct. 25, meaning there will be a total 'blackout' of the Moon in the night sky. Second, the Sun-Moon conjunction will occur exactly at the spot where the Moon was positioned on March 20 and where the Earth was on March 7 (as seen from the Moon). This alone is enough to make Oct. 25/26 a 'Mars day'. Third, the causeway of the Great Sphinx (identifiable with Mars), angled approximately 14 degrees (or 13.5 deg.) south of due east, will align with the sunrise of Oct. 25/26. Fourth, On the same day (Oct. 25/26), Mars rises at the same point on the Giza horizon as the Sun. Fifth, Mars rising on the eastern horizon on Oct. 25, perfectly aligned with the Sphinx causeway, will coincide with the 2-hour window of the Sun-Moon conjunction which in turn will be occurring at the March-20 position of the Moon.

And here are a couple of additional coincidences I just discovered. When viewed from the general area of NYC, i.e. the 'Babylon city' that experienced the 9/11 attacks and the 8/14 blackout, the Sun-Moon alignment of Oct. 25 (a 'Moon blackout') will take place exactly when the Sun and the Moon are seen rising at the horizon! Not only that, the Moon's rising point will be ~14 degrees south of due east - i.e. the exact angle of the Sphinx causeway!

There is no question that October 25/26 is a 'Mars day'. If you're not yet convinced, this should do it: On Oct. 25, there will be a conference held at the Univ. of Wisconsin called 'God, Man, and E.T.' which will deal with religious implications of the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence. The lecturers will include Richard Hoagland and David E. Flynn from the 'Watcher website', i.e. the website of the 'alien logo'!

Okay, now, moving 13/14 days forward from Oct. 25/26... bringing us to November 8/9. Like Oct. 25, there will be a 'blackout' event of the Moon on this date. This time not a New Moon, but a total lunar eclipse. In addition, there will be a very rare astrological configuration on Nov. 8/9, dubbed the 'Harmonic Concordance', that will coincide with the lunar eclipse. It's a perfect hexagonal form depicting the 'Star of David' - the star shown on Israel's flag.

In Endgame V, I discussed how the Star of David can be viewed as the two-dimensional representation of two interlocking circumscribed tetrahedrons - the geometric configuration from which derives the 'hyperdimensional number, 19.5°, i.e. the key number encoded into the layout of the 'monuments of Mars' in the Cydonia region according to Hoagland. This 19.5° angle is now widely considered the 'message of Cydonia'.

It could be said that the Star of David, or the interlocking tetrahedrons, represents a 'stargate/Babylon configuration'. And the date producing this astrological arrangement, Nov. 8/9, is quite clearly another 'Mars day'.

I might as well mention too that the Star of David symbolizes the Holy Grail, or 'Blood Royal', signifying the union of Jesus and Mary (Magdalene) or God and Goddess (masculine and feminine). The triangle pointing upward represents manhood and the one pointing downward represents womanhood. I believe many people are now aware of this symbolism thanks to The Da Vinci Code, the hugely popular book this year (still the #2 best-selling book at amazon.com).

What is not yet widely known, however, is that the 'Face on Mars', as well as the Sphinx, embodies the same theme. I presented this view in Endgame III written back in Nov. 2002. Endgame III even revealed how the 'Face' - actually a combination of the body of Virgo/virgin and the head of Leo/lion - was quite directly mimicked by the Shroud of Turin, the sacred cloth on which is shown a shadowy image of a man widely thought to be Jesus himself. I even discussed the plausible idea that the Shroud was actually made by Leonardo Da Vinci and the image is that of his. Yes, Da Vinci as in The Da Vinci Code. Well, anyway...

Back to the 'Genesis-Revelation code'. As per the pattern already established, Nov. 8 would turn into Genesis/Revelation 8:11. So let's see what they say. First, Genesis 8:11...:

And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.

Oh boy... Didn't we just discuss this very passage in my recent articles Endgame V and The West Wing Cipher? I believe we did.

The key here is that this dove of Noah is called 'Columba' (that's what the constellation by this name represents). The name Columbia derives from this. And of course, earlier this year we had the space shuttle Columbia disaster (Feb. 1). My interpretation has been that since Columbia is another name for the United States, the tragic event was an omen for America. But more specifically, I linked it to the American invasion of Iraq which immediately followed the space shuttle incident. It turned out that the driving force behind the war was the semi-secret imperial dream of the neo-conservatives in the Bush administration, dubbed 'Pax Americana' meaning 'American peace'. This was/is a crazy ambition to dominate the world by adopting a 'might is right' strategy. (The neo-cons like Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, etc. strongly believe like a demented cult that the US should rule the world and create a global 'Pax Americana' empire.)

Noah's dove is Columba, from which derives 'Columbia', i.e. the United States. And the dove is a universal symbol of peace. So together, the dove mentioned in Genesis 8:11 can signify 'American peace' - yes, 'Pax Americana'! Based on this analysis (along with other factors), my projection had been that the Pax Americana doctrine of neo-conservatives would likely end up in disaster like the space shuttle Columbia. In Endgame V, I wrote:

...the symbolic implication of the space-shuttle omen would be that the Bush administration's global ambition will lead to a major disaster. This, again, is likely relevant to the coming 'stargate window'.

We now know this was a valid projection. It was indeed during the stargate window this summer/fall that the disastrous failure of the US policy in Iraq became clear to everyone. This is why Bush's approval rating quickly dropped to the lowest level of his presidency this summer/fall.

So in any case, we see that the content of the Genesis 8:11 passage is very much in tune with the symbolism underlying today's events. It fits perfectly.

Now let's try Revelation 8:11...:

And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Holy crap! :) Now, this is ominous... and it resonates strongly with the pattern we have going here.

Let's begin with the earlier nuke theme. We all know about the terrible Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. And as some of you might know, the name 'Chernobyl' means... well, 'wormwood'...

Wormwood also means 'bitterness'. That's what the name 'Mary' means as well. Mary - both the Virgin and the Magdalene - often being considered the embodiment of the Grail-Ark, this leads us right back to the Star of David/stargate/Babylon/Cydonia astrological configuration of November 8/9. It is also worth mentioning that the terms 'Mary' and 'Mars' are likely related etymologically. (I can go into this a lot deeper... but I won't.)

Wormwood being a 'star' fallen into the waters of the earth, we are also reminded of how we identified Bush with a Greek mythological figure named Phaėthon, the son of the sun-god Helios, in Endgame V. The tale of Phaėthon is about his desire to ride the 'chariot of the sun' across the heavens. Here is what I wrote in Endgame V:

The chariot of the sun, we learn, was owned by his father Helios, who wouldn't let his son ride it because this was just too dangerous. But Phaėthon strongly insisted and was eventually able to get his father's permission. The result was inevitable – he quickly lost control, and now the world was in danger of being set on fire. This dire situation prompted Zeus to strike Phaėthon with his thunderbolt, which threw him off the chariot. And like a shooting star Phaėthon fell into the stream of Eridanus. The Eridanus thus became the grave of Phaėthon.

I then associated this with the Osirian death/resurrection theme and the Bush presidency:

The 'chariot of the sun' would correspond to the office of the President, which was held by George W. Bush's father, i.e. 'Helios', just a decade ago. Like Phaėthon, Bush Jr. is rapidly destabilizing the world with his 'might is right' doctrine. And following the parallel, the next step would be Bush being struck down by a 'thunderbolt'. Well, is this what's scheduled to take place for the 'stargate window'?

Well, perhaps this has something to do with Nov. 8/9 and/or Oct. 25/26? It is certainly interesting to observe that the Pope appears to be in his final days as widely reported in the news these days. It has been my interpretation that there is a strong parallel between the papacy and US presidency - both being a 'Babylon leader'. In my model, figures like the US president, Pope, British prime minister (Blair), Israeli leader (Sharon), etc. are all more or less interchangeable 'Babylon leaders' who are projected to 'fall' in some way during or in connection with the stargate window.

At this time I can't help but theorize that we are about to see this projection unfold in reality... The potential is certainly there. But how literal or symbolic the manifestation will be is always something very hard to determine. My philosophical view has been that the more we are aware of the pattern, the less literal the manifestation will be. And in that sense, it is notable that the 'Harmonic Concordance' of Nov. 8/9 is attracting a lot of attention out there. This could certainly reduce the impact of the pattern manifestation. Of course, if the interpretation of the 'sign' is way off, that might not help raise the awareness level much... Personally, I don't care that much how literal or symbolic the event manifestation would turn out to be. I basically just observe...

I'll be of course closely monitoring events around Oct. 25/26. What's really interesting to see is how we might be able to use the observations there to predict the nature of the events that are to come around Nov. 8/9. Because we have already (hopefully) deciphered the Mars/13-day pattern, a unique opportunity exists now for us to have a form of 'foresight'.

I'm finishing writing this update in the early morning of Oct. 24 and I'm already beginning to hear some interesting things. Major solar flares (or coronal mass ejections) are headed our way, scheduled to arrive this weekend... George W. Bush is also scheduled to fly back into the United States, back from his 8-day tour of Asia, later today.

Immediately before leaving for Japan, Bush met with Schwarzenegger on Oct. 16. This was also in the midst of the Pope's 25th anniversary celebration week. To me, it almost seems as if Bush's meeting with Arnie and leaving the United States was symbolically conveying the idea of passing the torch of 'kingship' (well... 'antichrist-ship').

Both Bush and Arnie are false kings 'installed' by the same banker/corporate group, designed to be a puppet leader. Now that Iraq is in the hands of the US, and Arnie is about to sit on the throne of California (if not the US... soon enough), Bush along with the neo-con lunatics may well be in the process of being discarded by the hidden 'handlers'. Bush may well be coming back to a nation that is very different from the one he knew before he started his Asia tour - a tour that began with a visit to Japan, the land of the rising sun, which can also be interpreted as the 'land of Horus/Mars'... Hmm, curious.

There are also hints seemingly telling us to watch Israel, the land of the Star of David - or the land of the stargate. They have nukes, and the country is ruled by their own version of Zionist neo-conservatives (the Likud party).

Well, anyway, I'm just thinking out loud now - probably speculating too much. I think I'll stop here. Tick tock...

October 21, '03   'Mars Day' Coming
This update continues from the previous discussion posted on Oct. 16 below. I was in a hurry to put this information out because of the proximity of the future date involved... Oct. 25.

My investigation has just uncovered a remarkable 'cosmic' design - 'signs in the sky' - revealing ~Oct. 25 to be a time of incredible significance. It is now my view that this is the 'Mars day' of 2003... well, at least comparable in symbolic importance to the Red Planet's closest approach to Earth on Aug. 27 this year. In term of temporal 'echo effects', however, Oct. 25 is a clear echo-date of the beginning of the Iraq war on March 20.

The key element of the 'pattern' that leads us to the new discovery is, again, how the US invasion of Iraq began exactly on the spring equinox, which is the time when the gaze of the Great Sphinx at Giza annually aligns with the sunrise (this takes place twice a year, on the spring and autumn equinoxes). Not only is Giza, where the monument resides, situated adjacent to the Egyptian capital 'Cairo' which is a name denoting 'Mars', the Great Sphinx itself is a 'Martian' monument in that it traditionally embodies the Egyptian sun-god 'Horus' who was also identified with Mars, called 'Horus the Red'.

Further, the Red Planet's relevance to the Iraq war and our 2-year cycle 'pattern' emanating from '9/11' (see my articles The Message of Cycle 23 and Endgame IV) was clearly acknowledged by the fact that Mars - having an approximately 2-year orbital cycle around the sun - came back to the exact position where it was on 9/11/01 in March 2003. (And Mars is of course the planet/god of war.) More specifically, this planetary return occurred on March 7 this year, which is about two weeks before the beginning of the war (March 20/spring equinox).

In my last update (Oct. 16) I showed how this slight discrepancy was not really a glitch in the design but a coded deviation. As I wrote:

...the Moon's position on March 20 near the edge of Virgo was exactly where Earth would be situated on the other date, March 7, as viewed from the Moon! (In other words, the Moon and Earth have simply switched places.)

In a sense, the apparent 'glitch' was actually a way of drawing our attention to the Moon - the very celestial object emphasized in the 'prophetic' film directly related to the year 2001, Kubirck's 2001: A Space Odyssey

As discussed previously, in the same movie is also visually stressed the concept of celestial alignments, especially those involving the Moon, the Sun, and the Earth. Which brings us to October 25, 2003. On this date - just four days from today - there will be just such a Sun-Moon-Earth alignment a la '2001' exactly at the spot where the Moon was positioned on March 20 and where the Earth was on March 7 in Virgo! (See image below.)

In other words, Oct. 25 is to be an 'echo' of the date that marked the beginning of the Iraq war.

Okay, so this is where my new discovery comes in to sort of make this temporal connection undeniable and much more significant. What led me to it was one of the key points made in the last update, having to do with the causeway of the Great Sphinx. As I wrote:

Even though the Sphinx itself faces due east, its causeway linking the monument to the middle one of the three great Giza pyramids is angled 14 degrees south of due east. As the southernmost sunrise position viewed from Giza is 28 degrees of east, which corresponds to the time of the winter solstice, we can infer that the Sphinx causeway is pinpointing the midpoint between due east (equinox) and the southernmost sunrise position (winter solstice). And it turns out that - chronologically speaking - the midpoint of the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice is... yes, November 8!

This was more or less an accurate inference. (Nov. 8 is another one of the pinpointed key dates.) However, I was also aware that the causeway and sunrise will not exactly align on November 8 (not sure why... perhaps due to the elliptical orbital path of the Earth), and that the solstice angle of sunrise as seen from Giza is actually slightly less than 28 degrees from due east (it's more like 27 degrees). [I got the initial value from The Message of the Sphinx by Bauval and Hancock.]

So I fired up my astronomy program again and tried to ascertain just exactly when the causeway-sunrise alignment would take place. Based on the observation that the causeway was meant to pinpoint the midway point between the equinox sunrise and the solstice sunrise, I calculated that the sunrise angle I should be looking for was 13.5 degrees from due east, i.e. exactly half of the (refined) solstice angle of 27 degrees.

I was amazed to discover that this angle was produce on... you guessed it, October 25/26!

But that was not all. I went on to discover next that in the very same time window (around Oct. 26), the rising of Mars on the Giza horizon would take place at the exact sunrise point on the horizon, i.e. 13.5 degrees south of due east! (The Mars rising comes several hours after sunrise.) Astronomically, the chance of this coincidence happening is very small.

So the October day echoing the Mars/war day in March earlier this year was now even more decidedly established as an echo date. (Keep in mind that the causeway angle used here was that of the Great Sphinx, a 'Martian' monument.) I felt quite satisfied that this was all by 'design' - that this was a significant 'sign'. But then came the next revelation, which put an exclamation on the whole thing.

It turns out that Mars' rising on the horizon will precisely coincide with the beginning of the conjunction of the Sun and the Moon (i.e. Sun-Moon-Earth alignment) taking place in the sky simultaneously! There is only about a two-hour window for the Sun-Moon alignment, as the illustration below shows.

In other words, just when Mars is on the horizon aligned with the causeway of the Martian monument (Sphinx) on Oct. 25, the Sun and the Moon just happen to be going through a conjunction at the very spot marked by the Moon on March 20. Well, this is almost too much...

But what does this cosmic 'sign' mean for the world below? This question is not easy to answer. A useful clue, however, is obviously given by the fact that the Oct. 25 celestial configuration is inseparable from March 20, 2003 - i.e. the beginning of a war. This is not to say that we'll see another war breaking out on Oct. 25. There are many possibilities... I'm not even saying that there will definitely be a big event on/around Oct. 25. But the potential is clearly there for a very meaningful event to take place at that time (Oct. 25-27). So... let's wait and see what happens.

October 16, '03   Echoes of War
The past two days or so, I've been looking into various celestial configurations lurking behind the 2-year echo scheme, the latest of which was the 'stargate window' around this September (the window that 'echoes' the time of 9/11/01, two years ago). I explained in the previous entry (Oct. 12) how the biggest event of 2003 so far, the Iraq war coming several months ahead of the projected 'stargate window', could still be easily considered part of the 'echo' through the use of Mars.

Basically I showed that this 9/11-related planet has managed to mark both the stargate window and the war in that: 1) the Red Planet came abnormally close to Earth in late August (closest encounter in recorded history) and 2) the US invasion of Iraq began on the spring equinox (March 20) when the gaze of the 'Martian monument', the Great Sphinx, aligned with the rising sun.

The war in Iraq being a direct consequence of 9/11 from two years ago, it was undoubtedly an 'echo' from 2001. But it's also true that the Martian connection made via the Great Sphinx (which signifies the Egyptian god Horus, represented also by Mars, 'Horus the Red') was not necessarily strong.

It was when I began closely examining the 'signs in the sky' that I finally discovered there was a much more concrete justification for associating the timing of the war with the Martian 2-year echo scheme. This was so 'in your face' that I couldn't believe I hadn't noticed it before.

Basically, it has to do with tracking the orbit of Mars, which takes roughly 2 years to go around the sun. As noted before, this is why Mars cannot be separated from the 2-year cycle pattern. But the trick here is to examine the position of the Red Planet more closely. For the planet to return to the same spot in the sky, it actually takes a few months less than two years. So... you can see where this is going.

First, I checked the position of Mars on 9/11/01. Immediately I was surprised to find it at one of the two celestial 'stargate' areas, where the path of the sun ('ecliptic') and the Milky Way intersected. These are where the sun would be positioned at the time of the summer and winter solstices.

I discovered that Mars was stationed at the winter solstice point (RA 18h 6m) between Sagittarius and Scorpius. I then checked the other 'stargate' point (summer solstice) and saw that it too was marked by a significant light in the sky, the Moon. Again, I couldn't believe I missed these before. This celestial configuration perfectly complemented my interpretation of 9/11 - that it was a Mars-related 'stargate' event.

Next, I progressed the time forward until Mars came back to the same spot. And, as you might have guessed, this took place in March 2003, i.e. the month of the beginning of the Iraq war stemming directly from 9/11! You can't have a clearer 'echo' than this.

There was still a slight discrepancy, however. The '9/11 return' of Mars occurred on March 7, which is about two weeks before the beginning of the war (March 20). Is this to be considered a negligible amount of deviation? Perhaps. But there was an extra clue suggesting that March 7 was indeed the intended date that is not to be considered so approximate. It was found that when viewed from the direction of the Sun, the Earth on or very near March 7 was situated exactly where the Sun was on 9/11. So March 7 had to be a pretty solid date.

Still, March 20 remains an equally meaningful date. As already mentioned, it marked the vernal equinox - a 'Sphinx/Mars day'. And it is an appropriate date to coincide with the start of the war since Mars is traditionally the planet/god of war.

So it seemed to me that rather than choosing between the two dates there had to be some kind of hidden mechanism that would conceptually unite the two. After some investigation, I was pleased to discover an elegant solution to the problem. It turned out that the Moon's position on March 20 near the edge of Virgo was exactly where Earth would be situated on the other date, March 7, as viewed from the Moon! (In other words, the Moon and Earth have simply switched places.)

Some readers may object that the need here for the perspective from the Moon makes my argument weak. And that may be a fair criticism. Only there is an additional piece of the puzzle that effectively deflects it. This is the film 2001: A Space Odyssey... As I wrote in the Sept. 22 update:

Since the 'stargate window' around Sept. '03 is an 'echo window' of '9/11' (2001), we have the masterpiece film/book, 2001: A Space Odyssey, as potentially being part of the echo. The same window is also considered a 'Mars window' due to its historic close encounter with Earth on Aug. 27 this year. And orbiting Mars at the present time is none other than NASA's Odyssey spacecraft (launched in 2001) named after the [same] movie.

The mystery that drives the story of '2001' is the black 'monolith', first discovered by man on the Moon. The lighting in the scene is so decidedly red, however, that we are subtly guided to associate the site with Mars rather than the Moon. (See picture.) This interpretation is certainly encouraged by the existence of Odyssey orbiting Mars. In any case the monolith discovery prompts a space mission to Jupiter (an attempt to make 'first contact'), which takes place - as clearly indicated in the film - 18 months later.

This has had a direct 'echo'. The start of the Iraq war came 18 months after the biggest '2001' event - 9/11.

In other words, the March timeframe pinpointed by Mars as an echo window of 9/11 is corroborated by the movie '2001' via the story's reference to '18 months'. (By the way, isn't it interesting that from 9/11/01 to 3/20/03 is exactly 555 days?) The prophetic quality of the movie is very eerie.

At any rate the main point I'm trying to make here is that the 'monolith' was discovered on the Moon and that the Moon is a major visual element in the movie. For instance, the dramatic opening scene of the film features a Sun-Earth-Moon alignment - a lunar eclipse - as viewed from the Moon. Similarly, the monolith discovery scene shows a subtle  Sun-Moon-Earth alignment taking place. In this manner, the Moon - specifically the viewpoint from the Moon - is emphasized in the film. This therefore strongly supports and encourages the Moon perspective I employed to bridge the March 7 and March 20 dates.

The icing on the cake here is the date of George W. Bush (prematurely) declaring the 'end' of the war's main mission - May 1. Here we have a direct echo of the movie '2001' in that this particular day witnessed a Sun-Moon-Earth alignment. And making it more striking is the position of Earth as seen from the Moon/Sun on May 1 - it neatly corresponds to the Sun's position on November 8 this year when there will be a total lunar eclipse (i.e. a precise Sun-Earth-Moon alignment)!

The November-8 alignment can even be associated with Mars through the Great Sphinx, the 'Martian monument' at Giza. Even though the Sphinx itself faces due east, its causeway linking the monument to the middle one of the three great Giza pyramids is angled 14 degrees south of due east. As the southernmost sunrise position viewed from Giza is 28 degrees of east, which corresponds to the time of the winter solstice, we can infer that the Sphinx causeway is pinpointing the midpoint between due east (equinox) and the southernmost sunrise position (winter solstice). And it turns out that - chronologically speaking - the midpoint of the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice is... yes, November 8!

Now, the autumnal equinox itself on Sept. 23 was also a 'Mars day' for the same reason the spring equinox (March 20) was a 'Mars day' - through the Great Sphinx symbolism. But this year's second equinox was extra special, in keeping with the foregoing findings. It was accompanied by a tight Regulus-Moon-Earth alignment! (Note that Regulus is the brightest star of the constellation Leo, the celestial form of the Great Sphinx.) Down here on Earth was also observed a symbolically significant event, as I wrote in the Sept. 22 update:

On the 'Mars/stargate/2001' day that is the autumn equinox (Sept. 23), Bush is scheduled to address the United Nations and ask for international help on Iraq - making official the administration's decision to shift its war policy. This will be the second geopolitical 'stargate/monolith event' - the first being the beginning of the Iraq war on the spring equinox, '18 months' after Sept. 2001.  And this event will take inside the 'monolith'.

Yes - just look at the pictures below: the monolith from 2001 on the left, and the UN headquarters building (in NYC) on the right. I don't know about you, but I'd say the resemblance is uncanny...

Okay, let's now move ahead to October 25. This is a significant date, first of all, because it will produce a Sun-Moon-Earth alignment. But that's nothing new. What's really remarkable about it is the spot where the Sun-Moon alignment takes place in the sky. It is the exact region in Virgo where the Moon was stationed on March 20 and where Earth was positioned as seen from the Moon on March 7! In other words, the Oct. 25 alignment is an echo of the '9/11 echo' that came in March '03.

Only 14 days after Oct. 25 comes Nov. 8, i.e. one of the 'Mars days' (made so by the Sphinx's causeway angle). This is when a Sun-Earth-Moon alignment (lunar eclipse) takes place, and we have already linked it earlier to the celestial alignment of May 1 (the end of war). Notice that the 14-day gap observed here almost exactly matches the period from March 7 to March 20 (13 days). Could this be a further echo design? If so, this would make the equations: 'March 7 = October 25' and 'March 20 = November 8'. And this implies that we are about to see an echo of the beginning of the war on/around November 8.

The seriousness of this 'war echo window' was confirmed when I went on to check the timing of the space shuttle Columbia disaster on Feb. 1, i.e. the event immediately preceding the Iraq war. I reasoned that If there was really a parallel between the two periods, there should be a similar event preceding the 'war echo window'. Ideally, because the Columbia disaster came 34 days before March 7, its echo should have come 34 days before Oct. 25 which is September 21.

I was shocked. I quickly realized that September 21 was the exact day when NASA sent its Galileo spacecraft crashing into Jupiter, resulting in the probe breaking up in the Jovian atmosphere! If this isn't an 'echo' of NASA's Columbia breaking up in the earth atmosphere, I don't know what is! (This parallel also makes us wonder... Was Columbia intentionally destroyed like Galileo?)

I found Galileo's fiery end on Sept. 21 intriguing also because it brought Jupiter into the picture. After all, Jupiter is none other than the destination of the main space mission depicted in the film '2001', where a 'stargate event' takes place through a monolith found there. In the sequel, '2010', Jupiter is even transformed into a second sun... called 'Lucifer'. And of course the 'double sun' theme is something I have already associated with the next election of the Pope...

Is it just a coincidence that Pope John Paul II is in the news a lot lately... because of his deteriorating health and the rampant rumors that he is about to make his exit?

Let's take a look at Nostradamus' Quatrain II-41 that mentions 'double sun':

The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will make the sun appear double:
The large mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff changes his abode.

Note how the last line associates the double sun mentioned in line 2 with a papal change. As I wrote in The Labour of the Sun (Feb. 15, '02):

In other words, we have here a strong indication that the reign of... 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.  ...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 [2000] US presidential election, as discussed in my Two Suns of Election MM article.

To relate right back to the movie '2001', specifically its solar/lunar alignment (or eclipse) theme that is being reenacted in real life this year, Pope John Paul II happens to be an 'eclipse pope'. As I explained before:

...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'! ...Pope JPII was indeed born during the solar eclipse of May 18, 1920 (!)...

Well, so it appears that all the puzzle pieces are rapidly coming together at this time... and becoming a big 'perfect storm'.

I'm not sure if the coming 'war window' will involve a real war (Iraq? Syria? Iran? NK?)... or the Pope's exit...or the fall of the Bush administration... or... Maybe it's all of the above. Maybe it's something else. Who knows.

Whatever the case, I'm actually looking at mid-December as a sort of climax window for the coming events and I will explain why I think this in Endgame VI. In the meantime November 8 is obviously the biggest date to watch in the coming weeks. The only 'problem' there is that Nov. 8 is already attracting a lot of attention in the astrological/New Age circles who have already named it the 'Harmonic Concordance', viewing it as a a very special 'stargate' date.

Yes, the coincidence is uncanny. My findings that led me to the November 8 date have very little in common with the astrological observations behind the 'Harmonic Concordance' and yet...

Well, maybe the big buzz will reduce the potential impact of the date. Maybe that's a good thing. It'll be very interesting to see what happens.

Here is a little excerpt from Jay Weidner's excellent article (analysis) on 2001: A Space Odyssey:

One of the most dramatic of these alchemical alignments are solar and lunar eclipses. From the very beginning of the film there is this magic moment when three worlds line up. Something amazing is about to happen.

So we now wonder: Will the lunar eclipse of November 8 produce 'something amazing'? I'm tempted to say... yes. Well, at least it should lead to a series of 'amazing' events in the coming months. (As far as the Pope is concerned, my current guess is that he'll make his exit around the December-January timeframe... and I wouldn't be surprised if it closely coincided with the fall of the Bush administration.)

More on these issues later.

October 12, '03   Headed For Meltdown?
Now that Schwarzenegger is the governor of California, it is time to closely watch him and see if he'll push deregulation to help his corporate 'Enron' buddies in the energy business. We've already looked at Greg Palast's sobering take on this, but Arnie's intention is actually quite clear even from statements found on his own website:

Government mismanagement has contributed to an energy cost crisis in California, putting the state at a competitive disadvantage, while placing a severe drag on our economy... And the current bureaucratic rules are making the crisis worse, instead of better. [...] California cannot attract investments and build the needed energy capacity under the current regulatory framework

In other words, Arnold seems to be saying: regulation bad, deregulation good. He apparently doesn't care about the deplorable fact that the energy companies like Enron used the deregulation scheme to deliberately create the 2000/2001 energy crisis in California by withholding electricity.

It's no coincidence that the strange energy emergency occurred in California which had just become the very first state in the US to adopt the policy of 'deregulation'. Let's take a look at some facts:

FACT: The CA energy industry wrote the skewed electricity deregulation law (Assembly Bill 1890) in 1996.
FACT: The law was implemented in 1998. California became the FIRST US state to embrace "deregulation".
FACT: Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), San Diego Gas & Electric (SDGE), and the energy industry forced the "deregulation" through the California Legislature.
FACT: They reaped financial rewards for over three years. They the companies and their shareholders bore the consequences.
FACT: Until June 2000, California deregulation was a license to steal. It froze residential and small business electricity rates at record high levels through 2002.
FACT: It forced customers to pay off over $20 billion in the utilities' bad debts ($9 billion for PG&E alone).
FACT: California's energy crisis was MANUFACTURED by a handful of private companies in the name of higher profits. The demand for electricity in California in four months of 2000 was actually LOWER than in 1999.

[For timeline see link 1 & link 2.]

As mentioned before, we already know (links 1, 2) that Schwarzenegger met with Enron's Ken Lay in May 2001 along with various other business leaders, presumably to discuss among other things how Arnie might be able to help energy companies by getting into politics. So apparently the question is not whether the new California governor will implement an energy deregulation policy but when.

Jason Leopold, who covered the energy crisis/Enron matter for Dow Jones Newswires, writes (Oct. 10):

Forget about the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger is taking on a new role as Governor-elect of California: The Deregulator.

One of Schwarzenegger’s first political moves as the state’s chief executive will be an effort to push the state’s electricity market closer toward deregulation, a move halted by Gov. Gray Davis two years ago in the wake of California’s energy crisis. [...]

[Schwarzenegger] said he wants to eliminate public oversight on future power supply contracts the state signs with energy companies and adopt a design plan for deregulating California’s electricity market from other states that restructured its electricity markets, such as Texas, New Jersey and Maryland. [...]

That could be Schwarzenegger’s first disastrous move as governor and it may cost him dearly. [...]

So Arnie is expected to move quickly to give more freedom - more room for manipulation - to energy corporations. But what I'm trying to figure out is how this will dovetail with the hypothesized 'destiny' of him becoming a messianic/antichristic leader, quite possibly the President of the United States.

If Schwarzenegger destroys California's economy further, that certainly will not help his popularity. So, assuming that there is a 'plan' in place to have Arnie become President, there is a need to make Arnie a relatively successful governor, at least on the surface. Does this mean Schwarzenegger's deregulation policy will somehow work well enough this time around - perhaps because the energy corporations, following a larger plan, will temporarily play by the rules? Or perhaps some drastic event will make him an instant 'heroic' figure just as 9-11 did for NYC Mayor Giuliani and President Bush for a while? It's hard to say...

But it seems to me that there is a symbolic pattern involved here hinting at a pretty nasty near-future event. The key is the 2-year cycle pattern residing behind our 'stargate window' which suggested that the events around September 2001 should find 'echoes' around September 2003 (i.e. the 'stargate window'). In Endgame IV and V we came up with a number of themes considered relevant to the projected window, and since the beginning of August, some major ones have indeed manifested in reality - especially the 'Osirian resurrection' theme, emerging via the combination of the 'rise of Schwarzenegger' and the 'fall of Bush and Co.' now in progress. (See previous entries.)

It is, however, through the massive blackout in the northeastern part of the US on Aug. 14 this year that we begin to see a clearer 'echo effect'. First, the California 'Total Recall' election was largely a result of the Californians becoming angry about the state's bad economy facilitated by the (Enron-driven) energy crisis that unfolded in 2000-2001. (Remember the 'rolling blackouts'?). It peaked in March 2001 as California suffered its first statewide rolling blackouts.

The combination of the massive blackout this summer (i.e. during the stargate window) and the simultaneously occurring California election (won by Enron-backed Schwarzenegger) was thus quite clearly a form of 'echo' stemming from 2 years ago. And this was complemented by the timing of the Iraq war this spring, which was the climax of the US's (misguided) response to 9-11 from 2 years ago.

Now, it is true that the timing of these events doesn't fit precisely into the 2-year cycle pattern. The statewide California rolling blackouts came in the spring of 2001 whereas the 2003 Blackout was in August; and 9-11 was obviously in September whereas the Iraq war (the response) came in the spring of 2003. Ah, but I'm sure some readers have already detected a sense of symmetry emerging here. Yes, the timing scheme is actually quite perfect - it's just in a slightly coded form.

There is a little temporal 'transposition' taking place here. Notice that the echoes of 9/11 and the California blackout have simply switched places. The California rolling blackouts in March 2001 was answered by the Iraq war in March, and '9/11' was answered by Blackout 2003 in August along with the Total Recall election won by Arnie, Enron's 'agent'.

The correspondence is quite remarkable, really. The 2001 California rolling blackouts occurred on March 19-20, which is the very same date that saw the beginning of the US war with Iraq (March 19 in US time and March 20 in Iraqi time). And the US Blackout on August 14 this year was followed by a series of mysterious major blackouts in London, Italy, and many other places around the world. In other words, the California 'rolling blackouts' were reenacted on a global scale during the summer/fall of 2003.

Further, we even find a form of convergence taking place between these two intertwined echoes within the 'stargate window'. Notice that just as the California energy crisis, which ultimately resulted in the election of Schwarzenegger, was the result of the state's faulty energy deregulation policy, the faulty unilateral/preemptive war policy adopted by the Bush administration is now threatening to bring down the White House beginning this summer/fall, overlapping the recall election. In other words, the policy failures of the two echo themes happen to culminate at the same time in the stargate window.

What's more striking is how the two themes become fully synthesized through the use of Mars, the 'planet of the year' which just made its historic close approach to Earth in August.

First, we note that the events of 9-11-01 were very 'Martian' symbolically. So for example I wrote in Mystery, Babylon the Great (Oct. 25, 01):

All summer long [in 2001], Mars was very close to Earth -- in fact, closest in over a decade -- and was a dominant object in the night sky.

Sounds familiar? Of course, this is very reminiscent of what happened this summer (with more intensity). This is because Mars has a ~2-year orbital cycle (around the sun). It could be said that Mars is none other than a heavenly manifestation of the 2-year cycle behind the 'echo effect'.

Second, this year we have experienced two major 'Mars days'. One was the planet's abnormally close approach peaking on Aug. 27 (neatly marking the 'stargate window'). The other - less obvious - was the spring equinox on March 20.

For ancient Egyptians, the Great Sphinx was a form of Horus thus also a form of the Red Planet (called 'Horus the Red'). The monument faces due east so that it aligns with the rising sun - another form of Horus - on the equinox. This year the spring equinox occurred on March 20 and this happened to be exactly when the Iraq war began - making it a 'Martian' event, especially since Mars is traditionally the planet/god of war. Further, the mouth of the Tigris-Euphrates river, the lifeblood of Iraq, is situated exactly at latitude 30°N., i.e. the very latitude of Giza/Cairo where the Great Sphinx resides. In fact, because the Iraqi river's mouth is situated due east of Giza/Cairo, the Sphinx is in effect directly looking at the mouth/Iraq. (It is also worth noting that the name 'Cairo' means 'Mars').

And so the Red Planet manages to elegantly tie together the two interrelated echoed events of 2003 separated by several months (Iraq war in spring and the Blackout/recall election around September - confirming the foregoing transposition design.) Or, to put it another way, thanks to Mars the Iraq war (undoubtedly one of the biggest events of 2003) becomes part of the pattern attached to the stargate window even though the war came some months before the window itself.

Well, now that the basic echo scheme has been successfully deciphered, let us move ahead and see if we can discern some future events... by projecting the pattern forward.

For this let me first point out that the WTC twin towers symbolized US economy/capitalism, and accordingly their destruction on 9/11 was symbolic of the destruction of US economy. This is reinforced by the '11' symbolism attached to the twin towers and the date (9-11) in that it evokes the idea of 'bankruptcy'; we find that bankruptcy law is federal statutory law contained in Title 11 of the United States Code and we often hear about companies filing for 'Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection' (under Title 11). It is certainly appropriate that the period of 2000/2001 did mark the beginning of the United States' economy collapsing, which is still continuing today.

Next, the above symbolism becomes relevant to the echo effect in 2003. While there was no massive 'bankruptcy' event during the echo/stargate window around September, the Total Recall election and the big blackout occurring this summer/fall were directly related to the Enron-driven 'bankruptcy' situation existing in California.

And we have a further bankruptcy issue lurking beneath that - i.e. the collapse of Enron itself in 2001 (the biggest of its kind in US history). The key clue we find here is the date of the US blackout this year - August 14. It turns out that on this very date in 2001, Enron's Ken Lay (the guy connected with Schwarzenegger) became CEO of that company (again). And on the same day Lay sent out emails to his employees, telling them how strong the company was, which of course was a lie. The next day Lay received a memo from a vice president of corporate development telling him that Enron might 'implode in a wave accounting scandals'.

Combined, we are strongly encouraged to superimpose the events and timeline of Enron's collapse (in 2001) upon the echoed situation existing in 2003.

The next step is to discern the 'contextual transposition'. For the 2003 situation, we are to conceptually see Enron as signifying the the entire nation (the US) - and why not, there is/was after all an unusually strong connection between Enron and the Bush administration.

The above is also supported by the foregoing symbolic connection found between 9/11 (the origin of the 'echo') and the notion of 'US bankruptcy'. And the interpretation is further supported by the fact that whereas Enron's meltdown was immediately preceded by 'rolling blackouts' in California, the massive US blackout in August 2003 was followed by many mysterious major blackouts in other parts of the world, creating a form of global 'rolling blackouts'.

So the first part of the emerging 'message' seems to be that the context/scale is to be considered expanded for 2003. In other words, the United States instead of Enron. And the second part of the encoded message would be that the US is facing a catastrophic economic meltdown of some sort, scheduled to follow the global 'rolling blackouts' (just as Enron's collapse came after rolling blackouts).

I'm surprised to have come up with this (tentative) future projection since this is not something that was on my radar before. In that sense I'm not sure how much confidence I personally have in this particular projection. But I'm simply reading and reporting symbolic clues with minimal prejudice.

Well, let's just go ahead and push this a little further and see if we can come up with some kind of timetable for the 'meltdown' - assuming that it is indeed scheduled to take place.

This we can do by transferring the Enron-meltdown timeline to the scaled-up situation existing in 2003. As mentioned, we already have an 'anchor point' at August 14 - corresponding to the date of 'Blackout 2003' and the key date of Ken Lay's early activities immediately preceding Enron's meltdown. We have the following Enron timeline that could give us some clues as to the future timetable we may be facing in 2003:

8/14/2001 Skilling abruptly resigns after running the company for just six months; Lay becomes CEO again.
8/14 & 27
In a pair of emails to his employees, Lay touts the company's stock and declares that Enron's growth "has never been more certain."
Sherron Watkins, a vice president of corporate development, writes a memo to Ken Lay expressing concern that the company will "implode in a wave of accounting scandals."
Enron reports a $638 million third quarter loss and discloses a $1.2 billion reduction in shareholder equity, partly related to partnerships run by chief financial officer Andrew Fastow.
10/24 Enron ousts Fastow.
10/28-29 Lay talks to Treasury Secretary O'Neill and Commerce Secretary Evans about Enron's problems. The Cabinet members decide not to intervene.
10/31 Enron announces the SEC formal investigation into a possible conflict of interest related to the company's dealings with the partnerships.
11/8 Enron files documents with SEC revising its financial statements for past five years taking away $586 million in profits and adding another $2.5 billion in debt to its books.
Dynegy backs out of proposed deal to buy Enron after Enron's credit rating is downgraded to junk bond status. Enron shares plunge below $1.
Enron files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, the biggest bankruptcy petition in U.S. history.
Enron fires more than 4,000 of its US employees. That same week, it fires more than 1,000 European employees.

We already know how bad the US economy is right now. But is the bottom about to drop out in November/December this year? At least that would be the most direct interpretation of the above timeline. Of course, reality is often 'twisted' so this may be too straightforward an interpretation. Still... I do feel a little nervous about this.

I have much more to discuss but I guess this is enough for this update. (And I'm sure the above was not easy to follow. :) )

Stay tuned...

October 10, '03   Seeds of the Future
So Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected Governor of California just as anticipated. No surprise there, but this was a big event for the 'stargate window'. In fact the 2-month period covering Arnie's Total Recall election, from Aug. 6 to Oct. 7, seems to have come to define the 'stargate window', with the 'rise of Machine' effectively fulfilling the projected main event for the window, i.e. the 'resurrection of Osiris'.

As discussed before, the 'Osirian resurrection' entails, as per ancient Egyptian tradition, the simultaneous occurrences of the death of the Osiris and the birth of Horus, the son of Osiris. The rise of Arnie corresponds to the birth of Horus whereas Osiris' death corresponds to the fall of the Osirian President, George W. Bush (or at least his administration/policies), via the collapse of his neocon-driven unilateral/preemptive war policies and the related 'Treasongate' matter involving the Wilson/CIA leak.

So now the seeds have been sown, and the stage is set for the 'game' to fully unfold. We have 'entered the gate', so to speak. And all the signs are that this 'game' is going to be momentous; in my view it is set up to be the 'endgame' for the United States in particular. What is at stake is the survival of the nation itself.

From the perspective of the glass being half full, what is taking place could be interpreted as a necessary cleansing before the birth of a new age... of 'Horus', as ending and beginning are always together. As one New World ends, the next New World begins. And we have just recently been introduced to the next New World - Mars, called 'Horus the Red' in ancient Egypt, which was an abnormally brilliant light in the night sky this summer/fall, i.e. during the stargate window. This was also hinted not so subtly by the 'Total Recall' election that gave birth to an earthly 'Horus', Schwarzenegger. After all, the film Total Recall featuring Arnie was all about the Red Planet.

The cosmic 'announcement' of the beginning of the Martian New World this summer was also a signal for the end of the American New World. This was the underlying theme of the 'stargate window', and we can accordingly view the earthly events that took place during the window as 'seeds' of the coming 'destruction' of America... the US. The clock is now ticking, and we have to wonder whether the infamous ending date of the Mayan calendar - 2012 - pertains to this, in essence, 'end of the world'. (Note that the Mayans inhabited Central America, part of the New World.)

Another 'clock' is the timing of man setting foot on the Red Planet. This 'Columbus moment' will definitely signify the passing of the torch and the beginning of a whole new chapter in the history of human civilization. Likely it is somewhere between 2010 and 2020 that this will take place. So most of us will be around to witness this momentous interplanetary transition process. Of course, those of us in the United States might not see it as a positive thing as, by then, we could be facing so much mess. Indeed, it is my view that things are set up so that the US won't be allowed to directly move on to Mars. In a sense, its high-powered 'corruption' is not to go beyond this blue planet... as it has to become 'history', so to speak. To put it another way, the old system (or 'Matrix', if you like) is not welcome in the next New World, which is conceptually quite natural.

In this light, it is certainly noteworthy that China is now about to make history by launching its first human into space. And this is expected to happen next week! Now think about this. Earlier this 'year of Mars', the space shuttle Columbia disaster forced the US to halt all of its shuttle flights. The US thus has no manned space flight capability this year. Contrast this with the Chinese suddenly coming around to send man into space near the end of the stargate/Martian window... Well, I'd say we are seeing a little preview of what is to come.

The traditional 'redness' of the nation of China also makes it a rather fitting country to play a big role in the saga of the Martian New World. Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if the Chinese suddenly announced that they had decided to go to the Red Planet. But I would also monitor Japan closely - it is after all the 'Land of the Rising Sun'. Since the 'rising sun' embodies Horus, and Horus is analogous to Mars, Japan can be viewed as the 'Land of Mars'. The Japanese national flag prominently featuring a red disk seems to support this interpretation as well.

Because of the inherent competitiveness embedded in the psyche of the US, it will take something drastic to keep it from trying to become a major player in the 'race' to Mars. The Columbia disaster was probably the first step. Frankly, I'm not even sure if the US will be 'allowed' to send any more Americans to space after this year.

And of course, it's not just about the space program - since we are likely looking at the 'termination' of the United States itself, the timing of which is controlled by the same 'clock' regulating man's migration to the Red Planet. So we are talking about a timeframe of 10 to 15 years for the American 'termination', at the most.

Could this perhaps have something to do with the potentiality of Schwarzenegger, the 'Terminator', becoming the President of the United States in 2008 or so? He would certainly be a fitting guy to do the job.... of 'terminating'. The scenario would also mesh well with the Mayan-calendar 'end date' of 2012 (i.e. 2008+4=2012). And let me remind you again that in the film Demolition Man (= 'Terminator') featuring Sylvester Stallone, it is mentioned within the story (set in c. 2030) that Arnold Schwarzenegger had become a US President:

Stallone: "Hold it! The Schwarzenegger Library?"
Bullock: "Yes, the Schwarzenegger Presidential Library. Wasn't he an actor?"
Stallone: "Stop! He was President?"
Bullock: "Yes. Even though he was not born in this country, his popularity at the time caused the 61st Amendment…"

Now, amazingly enough, in real life there is already a movement in Congress pushing 'a joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to make eligible for the Office of President a person who has been a United States citizen for 20 years'! And Orrin Hatch, the senator who introduced the resolution in July '03, is definitely looking at Arnie, as he is reported as saying: 'If Arnold Schwarzenegger turns out to be the greatest governor of California, which I hope he will, if he turns out to be a tremendous leader and he proves to everybody in this country that he's totally dedicated to this country as an American... we would be wrong not to give him that opportunity...'

Hmm... Well, like I wrote recently, there is definitely a inexplicable fusion of Hollywood and reality taking place these days.

Okay, more updates coming.

October 6, '03   Looming Deadline
On Aug. 16, I discussed the issue of Arnold Schwarzenegger having a hidden connection to the Enron/energy people who pushed for deregulation, created a fake energy crisis, and defrauded the people of California. To refresh our memory, here is what was reported (IPA) on Aug. 14:

[Enron's Ken] Lay hoped to regain his footing in California by forging ties with prominent Republicans in the state. In May of 2001, Lay convened a private meeting with junk bond king Michael Milken, Los Angeles' then-Mayor Richard Riordan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, at which Lay reportedly presented his vision of solving the state's energy deregulation crisis by, absurd as it sounds, expanding deregulation. The meeting, about which the public still knows very little, may become a major issue now that Schwarzenegger is no longer just a Republican movie star..."

The significance of this is of course that it has the implication of Arnie not planning to fight for the people like he's claiming to do if elected governor of California. Instead, Schwarzenegger appears to be working with the very corporate group that is largely responsible for the state's current economic mess.

It has recently been confirmed that Schwarzenegger indeed met with Ken Lay to discuss energy deregulation. According to FTCR:

Internal Enron e-mails confirm that Arnold Schwarzenegger was among a small group of executives who met with Lay at the posh Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel in May of 2001, in the midst of California's energy crisis. View the e-mails. The Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights, which obtained the e-mails, is calling on Schwarzenegger to acknowledge the meetings and disclose the information that was presented and discussed. The meeting with Enron occurred ten days after rolling blackouts darkened California for two consecutive days; Schwarzenegger has previously said that he does not remember such a meeting...

FTCR contends that Enron policies were responsible for the severe energy crisis California faced in 2000 and 2001. The group noted that the crisis had dramatic implications on the state economy and state budget and will continue to impact consumers for years to come. FTCR has called for a repeal of the deregulation and supported SB 888 (Dunn) to re-regulate the state's electricity system. FTCR has been critical of Enron's involvement in the California energy crisis, in which the company developed schemes for manipulating the power market that forced massive price spikes in the state.

The insidious implication of this has been laid out by Greg Palast:

The biggest single threat to Ken Lay and the electricity lords is a private lawsuit filed last year under California's unique Civil Code provision 17200, the "Unfair Business Practices Act." This litigation, heading to trial now in Los Angeles, would make the power companies return the $9 billion they filched from California electricity and gas customers.

It takes real cojones to bring such a suit. Who's the plaintiff taking on the bad guys? Cruz Bustamante, Lieutenant Governor and reluctant leading candidate against Schwarzenegger.

Now follow the action. One month after Cruz brings suit, Enron's Lay calls an emergency secret meeting in L.A. of his political buck-buddies, including Arnold. Their plan, to undercut Davis (according to Enron memos) and "solve" the energy crisis -- that is, make the Bustamante legal threat go away. [...]

So the Bush commissioners cook up a terrific scheme:  charge the companies with conspiracy but offer them, behind closed doors, deals in which they have to pay only two cents on each dollar they filched.

Problem: the slap-on-the-wrist refunds won't sail if the Governor of California won't play along. Solution: Re-call the Governor [and get Schwarzenegger elected]. [...]

...if Arnold is selected, it's 'hasta la vista' to the $9 billion. When the electricity emperors whistle, Arnold comes -- to the Peninsula Hotel or the Governor's mansion. The he-man turns pussycat and curls up in their lap.

There is also a 'prophetic' undercurrent here involving the theme of the 'Antichrist'. As I first noted on Aug. 20, things appear to be set up so that Arnie is made to play the role of the 'Antichrist' or 'false messiah'. Back then this was a pretty silly thing to say but I had to mention it because all the symbolic clues surrounding Schwarzenegger's emergence in politics were just too much to ignore. And now I'm seeing other people making similar observations - fueled by Arnie's 'Nazi problem' which has become a big issue even in the mainstream news media.

In 'Hitler & Schwarzenegger As Beast-Men' (Oct. 4), for example, LaRouche writes the following which closely echoes my position:

Schwarzenegger was selected because his training for film-acting had produced a type who fit the essentially Satanic, "beast-man" role played by leading fascists such as Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, Francisco Franco, and so on... The role Schwarzenegger was selected to perform on the California political stage was a Hollywood "remake" of a kind of evil which modern history has met in leading figures of France's Jacobin Terror, in Napoleon Bonaparte, and in each of the whole pack of leading fascist figures from the 1922-1945 interval. [...]

Schwarzenegger, like Hitler, is set apart in a certain way from more ordinary neo-conservatives such as Wolfowitz, Lewis Libby, and so on. Those neo-conservatives are beastly in their own way, but they lack that exotic appeal implied by the term charisma. Hitler was developed as a figure of charisma. Schwarzenegger has been transformed to similar effect, by Hollywood productions. Transformed from a sleaze-ball sex-freak of the body-builder sweat parlors, into a figure of charisma of a special kind: the charisma of the beast-man.

I kind of hesitate to mention this but even Nostradamus' prophetic words appear to be supportive of the Arnie-'Antichrist' connection. Here is one of his quatrains often associated with the Antichrist, I-76:

The man will be called by a barbaric name
that three sisters will receive from destiny.
He will speak then to a great people in words and deeds,
more than any other man will have fame and renown.

To Schwarzenegger is certainly attached the 'barbaric' epithet, 'Terminator'/'Destroyer', which in the Book of Revelation 9:11 (yes, '9-11') relates to the Antichrist. So Line 1 of the quatrain fits well at least. [Update: I was informed that before he was Conan the Destroyer, Arnie was Conan the Barbarian, thus giving him indeed a 'barbaric name'.]

Lines 3 and 4 are rather generic but Line 2, 'that three sisters will receive from destiny', contains a significant 'hyperlink'. First, the three sisters of destiny is a clear reference to the three goddesses of fate called Norne in Norse mythology. As pointed out to me by a fellow thinker, reversing the name 'Norne' will give us 'Enron' - the force behind Arnie's political adventure! It was also pointed out that Enron's trademark featuring three distinctive columns (i.e. the big 'E') suggests the reverse-spelling of 'Norne' (three goddesses) is likely by design.

So the implication would be that Schwarzenegger is a man on a big mission facilitated by Enron. And the reversal of the spelling seems to allude to the anti-christic nature of his messianic destiny. All the indications are that Schwarzenegger is likely to be elected governor of California tomorrow (Oct. 7)... At least that should be the 'plan'.

It's interesting to note that the White House was given the deadline of Oct. 7 to turn over all documents related to the Wilson/CIA leak ('Treasongate') matter. Since the rise of Arnie and the fall of Bush/White House can be considered two sides of the same coin as discussed in the previous entry here on Oct. 1, this coincidence occurring on Oct. 7 cannot be more appropriate. And it can be inferred that Schwarzenegger's win tomorrow would signal a very serious problem coming for the Bush administration - potentially directly from those documents turned over to the White House counsel's office tomorrow. (On the other hand, if Arnie loses the election, that would be a good sign for the White House.)

Finally, although I'm not sure I want to, I'll just add that my own casual 'psi probe' recently yielded some potential hints as to what the next big development might be. I mention this only because I have noticed that my previous predictive 'psi data' obtained in the same manner (not made public) have turned out to be quite useful.

This time, the brief conceptual imagery I got in response to the cue of 'the next big development of the stargate window' (or something like that) involved the computer, the White House, and the notion of communication. So my quick interpretation was that the CIA leak investigation now underway will find some key evidence involving email sent to or received by the White House or associated officials. I'm not at all confident that this is valid information, but I just thought I'd share the psi data here... as a little experiment.

October 1, '03   And So It Begins...
After many months of 'drip, drip, drip...', we are finally witnessing the opening of the 'watergate'. This is a massive flood, and it's quite a sight.

The White House will get probed like they've never been probed before... and it's about time. I think this is it - they are pretty much done. This the White House probably won't recover from.

Welcome to the 'stargate window'.

As the readers of Etemenanki know, it has long been my view - since as early as the year 2000 - that the Bush presidency would bring revolutionary changes and prematurely 'fall'. So for example, in Endgame V written some months ago (June 22) I stated:

...the implication would be that the coming 'stargate window' is to involve the 'death of Bush'. But this doesn't have to be taken literally. The apparent essence of the message with regard to Bush is 'this is the end of the road'. [...]

...following the parallel, the next step would be Bush being struck down by a 'thunderbolt'. Well, is this what's scheduled to take place for the 'stargate window'? [...]

Will Bush be 'sacrificed' by his own people in some way? ...the story is unlikely to end well for the 'king'.

The 'stargate window' is of course active right now - around September '03.

And just a couple of days ago, I posted The West Wing Cipher in which I painted a little more refined version of the scenario, involving figures like Cheney, neo-conservatives, etc. in addition to, or instead of, Bush.

It was late last Friday (Sept. 26) that MSNBC posted a piece that has now developed into a firestorm - a story with implications so serious that it's currently overshadowing the news on the imminent California recall election. I'm of course talking about 'Wilsongate', and here at Etemenanki the development didn't catch us by surprise as we were simply waiting for this news to break in a major way. In the Sept. 3 entry here titled 'Executive Treason', for instance, I wrote:

...there are two new developments that have - together with various other misconducts - the potential to bring down the Bush administration. One involves Ambassador Joseph Wilson... this time [the White House/ administration] went too far. This time what they did was illegal and treason... (the mainstream US news networks have not touched the story yet)... Honestly, it would be so great to see this parasite Rove (and the rest of the fascist gang) taken out of the White House in handcuffs.

I won't go over the story again as most people should be quite familiar with it by now. But the key issue right now is the identities of the leakers who illegally blew the cover of Wilson's wife, a former CIA undercover operative. Here is the present situation on that:

...a White House leaker is leaking to the Washington Post about Novak's White House leakers, but the leaker to the Post draws short of dribbling out the identities of who leaked to Novak and whom else they tried to leak to. [link]

Okay, did you get all that? :) Let me point out here that the seemingly significant role played by the Washington Post in all this is quite reminiscent of what was discussed in The West Wing Cipher...

Now, here is what Larry Johnson, a former CIA analyst and counterterrorism official at the State Department, had to say on PBS to elucidate what has taken place:

LARRY JOHNSON: Let's be very clear about what happened. This is not an alleged abuse. This is a confirmed abuse. I worked with this woman [i.e. Wilson's wife]. She started training with me. She has been undercover for three decades, she is not as Bob Novak suggested a CIA analyst [but a CIA 'operative']. But given that, I was a CIA analyst for four years. I was undercover. I could not divulge to my family outside of my wife that I worked for the Central Intelligence Agency until I left the agency on September 30, 1989. At that point I could admit it.

So the fact that she's been undercover for three decades and that has been divulged is outrageous because she was put undercover for certain reasons. One, she works in an area where people she meets with overseas could be compromised. When you start tracing back who she met with, even people who innocently met with her, who are not involved in CIA operations, could be compromised. For these journalists to argue that this is no big deal and if I hear another Republican operative suggesting that well, this was just an analyst fine, let them go undercover. Let's put them overseas and let's out them and then see how they like it. They won't be able to stand the heat. [...]

LARRY JOHNSON: I say this as a registered Republican. I'm on record giving contributions to the George Bush campaign. This is not about partisan politics. This is about a betrayal, a political smear of an individual with no relevance to the story. Publishing her name in that story added nothing to it. His entire intent was correctly as Ambassador Wilson noted: to intimidate, to suggest that there was some impropriety that somehow his wife was in a decision making position to influence his ability to go over and savage a stupid policy, an erroneous policy and frankly, what was a false policy of suggesting that there were nuclear material in Iraq that required this war. This was about a political attack. To pretend that it's something else and to get into this parsing of words, I tell you, it sickens me to be a Republican to see this.

Very strong words. And they underscore the seriousness of this crime committed by someone in or at least closely linked to the White House. Frankly I don't see this story going away until someone gets arrested or at least fired.

The 'game' is only beginning to unfold in the media, but it may well be that this is already the endgame being implemented. It's quite plausible to theorize that the CIA already has all the cards required to bring the matter to a certain outcome.

For too long, the intelligence community was pushed around by the Bush administration (Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, etc.). And this is payback time. It's well deserved too.

Bush's brain Karl Rove, the likely mastermind behind the leak, must be in shock right now. Until now he probably thought he was the invincible spider at the center of the political web. Enter the CIA and that picture is gone. He - and his people - should have known not to mess with the CIA. Rove's strength comes from controlling information (propaganda) and networking. Well, the CIA specializes in that, and Rove is still just one man whereas the CIA is a full-blown intelligence community. Rove, even with the executive power of the White House at his disposal, is probably destined to lose this battle. As David Corn of The Nation, who was the first journalist to write about the treasonous act, recently pointed out:

The CIA must be committed to pushing the issue, otherwise it would not have requested an inquiry that places the White House in the crosshairs. Before this, the CIA and the White House had engaged in tense scuffling concerning the uranium-from-Niger controversy. But Tenet's request for an investigation was the bureaucratic equivalent of going nuclear.

Although Rove is reportedly denying that he was behind the leak, this doesn't mean much. After all, if he actually was behind the crime, he wouldn't lose much by lying about it at this point. People are already suspicious about his involvement, and not countering that directly would surely be perceived as an indirect admission, and there would be more pressure directed his way. But lying about it now, by flatly denying his involvement, would not worsen the situation significantly due to the already very serious nature of the crime committed. So given the two choices, I'd say Rove would take the latter. That's my personal take on what he's doing - at this time at least. I just don't see how Rove - propaganda personified - could be wholly innocent in this.

To learn more about Rove, try these links: 'Who is Bush's Brain?', 'An Inquiry Into the "Innocent" Mr. Rove', 'Exposing Karl Rove', and 'Why Are These Men Laughing?'.

Because of the information produced in The West Wing Cipher and the fact that it was the Vice President's office's request that led to Wilson's trip to Africa (to investigate the pre-war 'Yellowcake' claim which turned out to be bogus), Dick Cheney is also on my list of prime suspects. Perhaps he isn't technically the leaker but he may well turn out to be someone who orchestrated/encouraged the leak.

Now, another intriguing aspect of all this is its resemblance to the case of Dr. David Kelly that's plaguing Bush's British counterpart, Tony Blair, i.e. the 'other leader' who led the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq. Dr. Kelly was the source of a leak that was damaging to Blair, and he was found dead soon after he was outed by the government. This obviously created a huge controversy and various suspicions. And helped by this, Blair's political career is near-death at this point.

So the current political scandal in the US seems to be a slightly delayed echo of the event in Britain. Again, here at Etemenanki we don't find this development surprising, as exactly one month ago in the Sept. 1 entry (titled 'Anglo-American Parallels') I practically forecasted this parallel:

And it may well be that what is happening to Blair is a 'preview' of what the Bush regime will soon face. Thanks largely to the utterly incompetent and controlled mainstream US news media, things are just moving more slowly in the US compared to Great Britain.

In the same update I also noted another parallel - involving blackouts. I wrote:

Before I forget, let me just briefly comment on the London power outage incident which closely followed the massive blackout in the US. Given the significance of the US blackout on various levels as discussed here before, it's certainly interesting that another major, mysterious blackout struck another 'Babylon city' (London). Perhaps on some level we can view these as an omen to the two nations - the US and Britain - that preemptively and unjustly attacked Iraq. 'Karma' often works in mysterious ways.

The 'Babylon' theme is important because our 'stargate window' was projected to involve the 'Babylon leader falling' concept - the 'leader' being considered applicable to Bush, Blair, the Pope, Sharon, etc. Now, after US/NYC and UK/London (i.e. two victims of major blackouts), our eyes looking for another 'Babylon' would turn toward Italy/Rome. And yes - Italy just had a very strange nationwide blackout on Sept. 28!

Here is where it gets even more intriguing. On the same as the Italy blackout, the Pope in Rome 'appointed 31 cardinals Sunday, acting months earlier than expected and strengthening his influence on the group that will choose his successor'. And we read that this 'decision by John Paul II to create 31 new cardinals, ahead of schedule, is inevitably being linked to new concerns over his health'. Then yesterday, it was reported in the news that: 'Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the head of the Vatican body which oversees doctrinal matters, was quoted on Tuesday as saying Pope John Paul was in very poor health and the faithful should pray for him.' So signs are emerging that the Pope is getting ready to make his exit.

This is remarkable. All three 'Babylon' cities/nations had a major blackout during the 'stargate window' and all three 'Babylon leaders' of these places are 'falling' - just as anticipated. So the projected 'pattern' is indeed materializing in reality right now.

What's further striking about the Pope-President parallel - a concept that is already several years old here at Etemenanki - is the fact that the coming 'consistory' this month, the ceremony of the Pope giving red hats to the new cardinals, will coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Pope's election. Note that '25th' is the exact number (via the '25th Amendment') pointed out in The West Wing Cipher as signifying the fall of the President!

Finally, we recall that to the 'stargate window' is most prominently attached the theme of the 'resurrection of Osiris', which has been directly associated with the 'fall of Bush'. In Endgame V I wrote:

What does the opening of the Osirian tomb, or the resurrection of the death god, mean for the the Osirian president Bush? The most straightforward interpretation would be that Bush will be 'resurrected'. But that doesn't make much sense in that to be resurrected one would have to be dead first. The key here is this: the Egyptian resurrection theme is a little twisted in that the restoration of Osiris takes place in the duat-underworld of the dead. In other words, Osiris is reborn into the death realm. Resurrection, therefore, would simply mean 'death' in a sense. (The resurrection into the living realm is done through the birth of Horus, Osiris' son by Isis.)

The latter part can be clarified further by these passages from Endgame IV [emphasis added]:

...the gates between this world and the 'Otherworld' will be opened this summer. Or to use another terminology, Osiris will be resurrected... [...] ...the birth of Horus, which in turn is symbolic of Osirian resurrection (as Horus, Osiris' son, is born concurrently with the death of Osiris in mythology). [...]

So all this together strongly indicates that the summer of 2003 will see the 'birth of Horus' and/or the 'death of Osiris'. [...] As 'Osiris' dies, 'Horus' is conceived...

So according to this model, since we are presently seeing Osiris - i.e. Bush/White House - falling, we should also be seeing the rise of Horus. And we are. As extensively discussed in previous entries here since Aug. 6, the 'rise of Shwarzenegger' via the California 'Total Recall' election is quite clearly designed to reenact the 'birth of Horus'... or the 'Antichrist'. As written in the Sept. 17 entry ('Birth of Darkness'):

While the 'Antichrist' was not a big subject in the Endgame series (I-V), it actually directly corresponds to the 'Osirian resurrection' [...]

Because the resurrection of Osiris also traditionally entails the birth of his son Horus (considered a reincarnated Osiris), it was actually easy to infer that the 'stargate window' might have something to do with the birth of a 'messianic' figure - symbolically fulfilled by the 'rise of Shwarzenegger', the Terminator/Destroyer (a biblical epithet of the Antichrist).

As discussed before, the big announcement of Arnie (making public his decision to run for governor of California) on Aug. 6 could not be symbolically more meaningful. For one thing, Aug. 6 is the day of the Sirius heliacal rising (as seen from Giza) which for the ancient Egyptians signaled the coming Nile inundation and signified the birth of Horus.

And this rise of Horus/Antichrist is about to climax in about a week as the California election will take place on Oct. 7 - which Arnold Shwarzenegger is now expected to win. So the timing is precisely coinciding with the Osirian 'fall' of Bush and Co. that is also taking place right now! It may be said that the elite cabal behind the scenes is in the process of dropping Bush for another puppet leader, another 'false messiah', Arnie.

And... So It Begins.
