The View From
26, '04 'Super Mars Day Window' Analyzed
March 12 post, I pointed out two key
dates that were coming up shortly. One was the
'Ides of March' (3/15) and the other the 'Super Mars Day' window around
3/20-22. I must say I was quite amazed as I watched certain events unfold
on/around these very dates.
me start by quoting a passage from the 3/12 post:
...we are likely in for some
very significant 'antichristic' events in the near future - as early
as this month. Key dates coming up are March 15 (Ides of March,
feast day of St. Longinus) and around March 20 (spring
equinox/'Super Mars Day') and/or March 22 ('322'/'Skulll & Bones
day'). I'd say there
is a high probability that the spring equinox window coming up will
produce some significant event(s) that will conform to the pattern
The date March 15 gave us NASA's announcement of Sedna, a newly discovered member
(planetoid) of the solar system. As already discussed previously, this was
symbolically very fitting because, for instance, the name 'Sedna' comes
from a goddess of the sea/water and thus relates directly to the
on-going Mary Magdalene-Isis-Venus theme as these goddess figures are
similarly associated with water. Also there was a strong connection to
the symbolically significant events of 'Super Tuesday' (March 2):
...Sedna being the goddess of the
sea/water relates to the discovery of
the existence of past water on Mars announced just recently by NASA on
March 2, 'Super Tuesday', i.e. the very same day John Kerry the
Bonesman made it clear - with The Passion controversy raging in
the background - that he was the Democratic challenger to Bush in this
So the Sedna announcement was very much consistent with the underlying themes we were already following
closely. But what was particularly interesting about the 3/15
development is the
repeated theme involving NASA/space and water, as we note that this is
a theme shared by both
3/15 and 'Super Tuesday' (3/2).
The parallel between the two
dates also implies the continuation of the 'Messiah/Antichrist' theme
that was embedded in the events of Super Tuesday (March 2), as I noted
We have a film about the crucifixion of Jesus at
the 'Place of the Skull' [Golgotha], followed by the ascension of Kerry who
belongs, as does Bush, to Skull & Bones. And we even had the remarkable coincidence of the big NASA
of Mars' past water coming on the same day, March 2, i.e. 'Super
Now, it is within this context
that the events of the other key time window, ~3/20-22, become
First, March 20 (spring equinox)
is our 'Super Mars Day' that resonates with 'Super Tuesday'.
Traditionally Tuesday is 'Mars day' and March is the 'Mars month'.
This makes 'Super Tuesday' (3/2) analogous to 'Super Mars Day'. And
the latter also applies to March 20/equinox because of the
archaeoastronomical design of the Great Sphinx at Giza, the
Horus/Martian monument par excellence. In ancient Egyptian tradition,
the Sphinx, Sun, and Mars are all identified with Horus, the royal
offspring of Osiris and Isis; and it is at the time of the equinoxes
that the Great Sphinx directly faces its celestial counterpart, the
rising Sun due east. The equinox, especially the one in spring
(~3/20), is therefore a special 'Horus day', or, because Horus and
Mars are interchangeable, a special 'Mars Day'... i.e. 'Super Mars
Mars is Horus ('the Red'), and
Horus has long been compared to Jesus. So 'Mars day' would also
represent 'Messiah day'. Combined with the idea that the spring
equinox represents the time of the rebirth of the Sun/Horus, we could
say that March 20/equinox signifies the birth of Messiah/Christ/Horus.
And since the birth of Horus is mythologically inseparable from the
death of his father/alter ego Osiris, it is very appropriate that
'Super Tuesday' (March 2) coincided with the raging controversy
surrounding The Passion of the Christ, a film about the death
So everything about this
symbolism told us that the 'Super Mars Day' window around the spring
equinox would be an 'echo' of 'Super Tuesday', more so than March 15
(which too emerged as an echo of March 2).
Well, March 20 was last Saturday
and like most Saturdays it was a relatively uneventful day. But this
was not surprising because 3/20 being the first anniversary of the
beginning of the Iraq war, there wouldn't have been enough 'twists' to
the timing symbolism. And there was also the 'Skull and Bones day' of
March 22 ('322') coming only 2 days later. This is why I had treated
the timeframe as a 'window' rather than a 'key date'.
Things began to heat up on
Sunday (3/21). Let's start with The Passion. It was reported
Sunday that the Jesus movie was dethroned from its #1 box-office
position by the new film called 'Dawn
of the Dead'. The symbolism there is quite intriguing as 'Dawn
of the Dead' can easily be viewed as an allusion to Horus, the
(rising-) Sun-god and the son of Osiris the god of the dead. Passion
depicts the death of Osiris; and as if to reenact the mythological
story, the death is immediately followed by a rebirth - i.e. the 'dawn
of the dead'... the birth of Horus.
Next, the birth of Horus is
something we have long seen in the rise of Schwarzenegger; indeed,
Arnold was quickly identified as a major 'antichristic' figure here at
Etemenanki (see past posts). Arnie was specifically mentioned
in the 3/12 post when discussing
the key March/Mars dates. We've talked a lot about the seeming
'destiny' of Schwarzenegger becoming a US president before and this
'plan' finally began to be detectable this winter/spring as one of the
news headlines on Feb. 22 ('222') was:
'Schwarzenegger Argues for White House Run'. (See my 2/23 post.)
And the media helped pushing
this idea again several days later by inexplicably throwing in the
'Arnold amendment' question during a Democratic presidential debate
televised on CNN.
Well, guess what happened on
Sunday 3/21... One of the news items bore the title: 'Kennedy
would back law enabling Schwarzenegger to run for US president'.
Arnie is married to former
journalist and Kennedy heiress, Maria Shriver, a
niece of Democratic Senator
Ted Kennedy. I see this marriage as a key element of the symbolic role
- if not a literal one - Arnie now appears to be playing - i.e.
Horus/Messiah/Antichrist. Note that the JFK presidency was called
'Camelot', which makes JFK an Arthurian figure who is inseparable from
the tales of the 'Holy Grail'. And the Holy Grail largely represents
'Blood Royal' or the supposed bloodline stemming from the union of
Jesus and Mary Magdalene. And the Messiah/Antichrist has to possess
this Davidic royal blood - just like St. Longinus' legendary 'Spear of
Destiny' that pierced Jesus'
side while on the cross is believed to represent something that 'Antichrist' must obtain in
order to be successful. In fact, I have already compared
the 'Blood Royal'/'Rose Line' to the Spear of Destiny in my 3/12 post.
(And of course the religious feast day of St. Longinus is March 15,
i.e. the other key date.) Now here is what I wrote in the 3/12 post:
[The Sun, Moon,
and two comets Linear and Neat] will closely align along the 'zero
longitude' of the sky grid on March 20/21. What I find particularly
interesting here is the potential connection between the term 'longitude' and the name
'Longinus'. I don't think it's a mere
coincidence that Longinus is associated with a lance, i.e. a
straight line... such as a longitudinal line (meridian),
especially since Jesus' blood/bloodline is esoterically associated
with a meridian called 'Rose Line' (more or less equated with
the Paris Zero Meridian). And this certainly increases the
symbolic depth of the longitudinal celestial alignment formed around
the spring equinox coming up shortly. [Update: late March
also witnesses a rare alignment
of five planets.
I highlighted the words
'longitude' and 'meridian' above because this creates an amazing
correlation with the event we introduce next.
Although not March 20 (equinox)
or March 22 (Skull & Bones/'322'), March 23 was also a
symbolically significant date included in the 'Super Mars Day' window.
Since 'Super Mars Day' is analogous to 'Super Tuesday' as discussed,
it is natural to view the Tuesday closest to March 20/22 as
carrying the same theme. This happened to be March 23. The previous
'Super Tuesday' on March 2 was marked by the NASA announcement of
Mars' past water. On
the second 'Super Tuesday', March 23, pretty much the same thing
happened! On that day, NASA held a special press conference to
to the world that the landing site of the Mars rover Opportunity was once the shore
of a salty sea. Now, if this wasn't an 'echo', I don't know what is!
At first, I was already
satisfied to see this as the fulfillment of the projected continuation
of the pattern. But days later I was shocked as the realization came that the symbolism involved was actually much more
extensive and elegant. I realized this when I saw the name of the area
where Opportunity landed - 'Meridiani
Planum'. That is, 'Meridian Plane' - so called because the
site is near the Prime Meridian, or longitude zero, of Mars!
Very unexpected, but this certainly seems to confirm my symbolic
interpretation regarding Longinus, i.e. the relevance of longitude
zero/Prime Meridian/Rose Line.
The above also has the
implication of attaching the messianic 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' theme
to the Red Planet. This happens to be a fully expected development. As
early as Nov. 2002, I was already propounding this connection; as I
wrote in Endgame
III back then:
... I'm sure this
is the first time that all the different subject matters, especially
Cydonia [/Mars] and the underground Gnostic tradition, have been
put together and viewed as aspects of the same 'game'. Strange
stuff, yes, but this is where the 'game' is going, so people should
get used to it.
And now we are seeing the 'game'
getting there indeed. This is still only the tip of the iceberg, and
I'm sure I will be talking more about this 'game' in the future.
Now, let's back up a little and
take a look at the events of our 'Skull & Bones day', March 22.
Last year this date overlapped the beginning of the US military
unleashing its 'Shock & Awe' campaign against Iraq. Because we now
have two Skull & Bones members (Bush and Kerry) running against
each other for the White House in this election year, we figured the
likelihood was high for some significant event to take place on March
22. And the anticipated event did indeed come, in the form of an
Israeli air strike killing
Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the founder/spiritual leader of
Palestinian militant group Hamas. This was an event that sent shockwaves
around the world. Hamas leadership even declared that the assassination
'opened the gates of hell' - as it may well have. (I seem to sense the
early prelude to WWIII...)
And I must mention that the
image of Yassin (Hamas founder) has struck many people as having an
uncanny resemblance to the 'Saruman' character in the Lord of the
Rings films. Hmm... See for yourself:
I bring this up because The
Lord of the Rings happens to be something already associated in my
3/12 post as being relevant to the underlying pattern, as I wrote:
(the planet/god of death) made
its close approach - a return after 30 years - to Earth around the
very beginning of this year as if to tell us that 2004 is to
become the year of death... What's more, the ringed planet
Saturn is quite literally the 'lord of the rings' and it just
happens that the current window very closely overlapped the
triumphant period enjoyed by the film The Lord of the Rings
that opened last December and ruled
this year's Academy Awards held on Feb. 29. Well, February 29 came
only 2 days before 'Super Tuesday'! And of course the
latest/last installment of the LOTR series was titled 'The
Return of the King' - perfectly describing the return of Saturn,
which as a death-god is equatable with Osiris-Jesus, the
archetypal king of ancient Egypt.
The messianic theme ('return of
the king/Christ/Osiris') embedded here is also reflected by the fact
that Israel, where Yassin was killed, is the biblical land of Jesus.
Symbolically the death foreshadows the rise of
Horus/Christ/Antichrist, i.e. 'the return of the king'.
Who is the 'king'? Well, it is
certainly interesting to note that: 1) Kerry and Bush are both Skull
& Bones; 2) the site of Jesus' crucifixion was called Golgotha
which means the 'Place of the Skull'; 3) I have long viewed
Bush as a messianic figure (though a very manufactured one); and 3) in
the current window (February-March) Bush is falling hard and Kerry has
rapidly gained momentum to challenge Bush and try to become the next
president of the United States. Also, we've seen the continuing 'rise
of Schwarzenegger'. So... I'd watch these developments closely in the
context given above.
Because of the underlying
symbolic context, in fact, we are encouraged to view the biggest
American news story of the 'Super Mars Day' window as a form of 'death
sentence' to the current US leadership. I'm of course talking about the
revelations made by Bush's former top counter-terrorism adviser Richard
Clarke and the 9/11 Commission's public hearings covered live
by all the major cable news networks.
It began on Sunday March 21 (sandwiched
between spring equinox and S&B day) as CBS's 60
Minutes aired its shocking piece on Richard Clarke. It/he
revealed in a quite convincing fashion how the Bush administration, or
the top officials including Bush, simply ignored
the looming al-Qaeda threat
and focused almost solely on
Iraq before and after 9/11. A
lot of us already knew this, but
Clarke's revelations on 60 Minutes (and now in his book Against
All Enemies) probably
forced many Americans to finally question the competence and honesty
of the Bush administration in a serious way for the first time.
This was quickly followed by
before the 9/11 Commission on March 24 (the hearing process itself began the
day before). And his performance was quite impressive.
All this was very bad news for
the White House since the supposed firm response to 9/11 was the only viable
platform left on which Bush could still run his re-election campaign.
Without the (false) aura of a 'reliable war president', Bush doesn't
really have anything run on. He needs to be able to exploit
9/11 in this election year, and now even that is being taken away from
him (and the truth was never on his side). So the White House was
naturally in panic mode and wasted no time trying to discredit Clarke
which so far has not been successful due to the fact that Clarke is
close to being as credible as a whistleblower can get in this case - and thus
the panicky White House reaction to begin with.
I'm now interested to see how or
if this situation will lead to the exit of Cheney - politically forced
to step down (either from the '04 ticket or as Vice President). As
mentioned many times before, this is a scenario I view as likely. Last
September, I wrote the following in The
West Wing Cipher:
can infer conservatively that the real White House is in for a big
'earthquake'. And the central figures involved will be the President
and the Vice President. It will be interesting to see their
interaction, especially now that George W. Bush is beginning to move
away from the neo-con/Pax Americana war strategy championed by
Cheney. It's almost as if the existing situation is that either
Bush or Cheney will have to go, i.e. President vs. Vice
And I also said this in the same
Are Cheney and Co. about to
get 'fired'? Within a month, or perhaps around the time of the next
'Mars Day', the spring equinox of
2004? It will be interesting to
So because of the projected
timing, you can see why I'm tempted to see the current political storm
surrounding the White House as something serious enough to lead to the
fall/exit of Cheney or perhaps even Bush himself. There are other
scenarios but... let's just hope the cornered animal won't go berserk.
Finally, let me touch on some
other fronts - space stuff. First, the predictable
discovery of past water evidence on Mars is now being followed by
fully anticipated 'reactions'. We recently saw articles like The
New Hunt for Life on Mars and Politics
of Water: Ancient Sea on Mars Begs Human Exploration for
example. This push in my view will continue because the timetable of
the 'master plan' demands it, in a sense.
Next, just a day or two before
the spring equinox, there was a news story
about an asteroid nearly hitting Earth. This was followed by a story
telling us that 'Asteroid
Scare Prompts NASA to Formalize Response'
(3/22) Well, this development makes us chuckle because the threat from
asteroids was the anticipated phase of the scare tactics reportedly
used by the military-industrial elite that was supposed to come after
a (manufactured) terrorism threat. As discussed in the March 9 post,
the reported goal of this 'game' is the militarization of space. So we
see that we may indeed be moving rapidly in that direction now.
And the quickened pace of the
'endgame' probably has much to do with the Peak
Oil situation. I've referred to it in almost every post since mid-February
and this is because the coming energy crisis is an imminent and dire
issue that is a huge but so far largely hidden factor in the
'endgame'. And this year we seem to be witnessing a rapid deterioration
of the condition.
threat to cut US oil (March 2)
Use Oil to Keep Heat on Mideast (March 9)
rise in Black Sea region (March 15)
market tightness is likely long term (March 15)
Tale of Two Planets (re Saudi Arabia) (March 17)
Prices Reach 13-Year High, Threatening U.S. Economy (March 18)
downgrade of oil reserves could spread (March 19)
Predict Higher Gasoline Prices (March 22)
Pump Prices Hit All-Time High (March 23)
perfect storm that's about to hit (March 24)
Libya in Oil and Gas Partnership (March 25)
'party' does appear to be almost over now. The issue is not really whether the
system will begin to descend into chaos and/or a police state, but when...
this decade. The financial system is on life-support, just waiting
to be unplugged. It's just not really feasible for US economy to
recover; it will probably go down like the WTC twin towers. I'd say
timing is already the name of the game at this point. It's about getting
on the lifeboats of the Titanic... And there are not enough of them.
The elite will keep saying in public 'everything is going to be okay!'
while they themselves will be running towards their lifeboats. So... well, it's going to
be ugly, I'd say. :)
17, '04 Emergence of New World
15 (Ides of March), one of the key dates mentioned in my previous post,
they had discovered a new planet/planetoid going around the Sun beyond
the orbit of Pluto. It may
even be as big as Pluto, so it could arguably be said that we have
found the 10th planet of our solar system. In other words, this is big
news and indeed it was one of the top stories of the day.
planetoid has been named 'Sedna',
after the Inuit goddess of the sea and the ruler of the dead.
This cannot be more fitting in the context put forth previously,
just five days ago.
Sedna being a death goddess directly relates to the prominent death
theme detected in the symbolic pattern underlying recent world events.
The year 2004 began with the planet Saturn, the death god, making its
closest approach to Earth in its 30-cycle, which also coincided with
the phenomenal success of the third/last installment of the Lord of
the Rings series, 'The Return of the King' - an obvious
allusion to the return of the ringed planet Saturn. Then came in
February/March of this year: 1) another huge film, The Passion of
the Christ, about the death of Jesus who is the biblical
counterpart of the Egyptian god of the dead, Osiris (as well as
his son, Horus); and 2) John Kerry becoming the Democratic
presidential candidate, making this year's US election a battle
between two members of Skull and Bones, the secret society obsessed
with war and death.
Sedna being the goddess of the sea/water relates to the discovery of
the existence of past water on Mars announced just recently by NASA on
March 2, 'Super Tuesday', i.e. the very same day John Kerry the
Bonesman made it clear - with The Passion controversy raging in
the background - that he was the Democratic challenger to Bush in this
year's election. The water theme is also very much attached to the
important Mary Magdalene-Isis-Venus complex discussed previously: the
name 'Mary' to the Gnostics meant 'of the sea' (Latin, 'mare'); in
Languedoc tradition Mary Magdalene is 'Mistress of the Waters' (la
Dompna del Aquae); Sirius, the star of Isis, has been called the
'Fair Star of the Waters' and very closely associated with the annual
flood of the Nile; and mythologically Venus came from the sea. (The
implied connection here between Mars and the goddess is something I
have alluded to in the past, by the way.)
relevance of Mary observed above is particularly intriguing in that
one of the meanings of her name ('Mary') is 'bitter'. Now, you don't
have to be a dedicated student of the Bible to know that there is a
star that falls into the waters of the earth during the end times
mentioned in the Book of Revelation, called 'Wormwood' (Rev. 8:10-11).
The widespread and seemingly endless speculations
going around in cyberspace about 'Planet X', largely based on Zecharia
Sitchin's popular 'Nibiru'
theory, is very much like and often compared/equated with this
'Wormwood'. And of course the name 'Planet X' denotes 'Planet 10' -
thus, if viewed as a planet, the newly discovered Sedna (the 10th
planetary member of the solar system) would literally be 'Planet X'.
This means Sedna and Wormwood could be linked symbolically. And the
punch line: the relevance of Wormwood reinforces the Sedna-Mary/'bitter'
connection because 'bitter' is exactly what the term 'wormwood' means!
This is clear just from reading this passage in Revelation:
the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven,
burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the
rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the
star is called Wormwood: and the third of the waters
became wormwood; and many men died of the waters,
because they were made bitter.
biblical link is also seemingly encouraged by the fact that 'Nibiru',
the supposed Sumerian name for 'Planet X', means 'planet of the
crossing'. The idea of 'crossing', or a cross, is evocative of the
death theme of Jesus-Osiris now very much on people's mind thanks to The
'end of the world' theme that comes with Planet X/Nibiru/ Wormwood
again brings our attention to the film 'Armageddon'.
As mentioned here before, the
movie somehow overlays the ideas of oil drilling upon an incoming
asteroid (a la 'Planet X'); and I pointed out that the imminent danger
posed by the mostly fictional 'Planet X' has actually more to do with
alluding to the dire condition created by Peak
Oil, the end of (cheap) oil that quickly leads to the end of the
whole industrial civilization. Assuming that the peak came in 2000 as
some have theorized, the sh*t will begin hitting the fan within years,
if not this very year. NASA announcing the discovery of Sedna - the
little 'Planet X'/'Nibiru' - may be yet another symbolic sign that the
Peak Oil/energy crisis is coming fast now.
Armageddon, there is another ominous hint - the idea of nuclear
detonation. In the movie the incoming rock is destroyed by the oil
drillers in space who successfully detonates a nuke placed inside the
asteroid. Making this really ominous is the fact that the biggest
nuclear disaster (aside from those used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki)
took place in 1986 at a placed called Chernobyl which means
none other than 'Wormwood'!
Peak Oil and some kind of nuclear event apparently on the horizon...
Lovely! (How do we get off this Titanic?)
the notions of Mary/Venus and a 'fallen star' also lead us to the 'fallen
angel' Lucifer, traditionally identified with Venus. In my
previous post I discussed how the recent Madrid bombing, i.e. Spain's
'9/11', is related to the on-going symbolic pattern that involves
among others Venus-Mary-Isis, i.e. the goddess complex. For example,
the Madrid attack came on 3/11 which is exactly 6 months away from
9/11 and there are exactly 911 days in between 3/11/04 and 9/11/01.
Continuing the day counting, we find that there will be exactly 1000
days between 6/8/04 and 9/11/01. June 8 this year happens to mark the
day of Venus' transit across the face of the Sun - a very rare
association here is fitting also in that both the 'tower' and
five-pointed star, represented by the WTC twin towers and the Pentagon
(five-sided) attacked on that day, are traditionally associated with
Mary Magdalene/Venus/Isis. This was pointed out as early as October
2001 in my article, Mystery,
Babylon the Great. (In the same article was also discussed,
already, the relevance of Mars and the 'fallen angels'.)
now we further find out that according to some sources
the name 'Madrid' means 'rich in abundance of waters'. The water
theme again! What's more, Dallas, a reader in Spain, sent me this
information on March 13 concerning the Madrid bombings:
train station (called Atocha) is very close (+ - 100 metres) to the
'Retiro', a big park where you can see the only one statue (made in
Rome) in the world... dedicated to the memory of Lucifer. They
called it 'The fallen angel' ['El Angel Caido']...
Lucifer... again. The claim that this is the only statue
dedicated wholly to the fallen angel in the world makes this a
very significant coincidence indeed.
is more. Spain is the country from which Christopher Columbus went on
his journeys to 'discover' America the New World. As someone pointed out in the
comment board or forum here, March 15 (Ides of Mars) - the day of
NASA's Sedna announcement - happens to be the date of Columbus'
arrival in Spain after visiting the New World for the first time in
1493. This link then leads us back to another recent Mary/Venus event
- Janet Jackson's Super Bowl halftime show stunt.
we discussed quite a lot last month after the Super Bowl event
unfolded on Feb. 1, there was a definite 'goddess' theme to the
pre-game and halftime shows, represented by Beyonce and more prominently
by Janet Jackson. They were symbolically presented as the 'Black Madonnas',
i.e. 'Mary Magdalenes' or 'Venuses'. Because the game was held in
Houston, and more importantly because it was held on the anniversary
of the space shuttle Columbia disaster, there was also a big
space/NASA/Moon theme to the Super Bowl shows. The name 'Columbia'
derives from Columbus... the 'discoverer' of the New World
(America) from Spain.
it was also pointed out that the last major bombing incident before
Madrid was that of the Bali
terror attack on October 12 last year [correction:
actually in 2002]. 201 people were killed in
Madrid, 202 in Bali - eerily close. [Update: now
the Madrid death toll has risen
to 202, the very same number as Bali.] But what's really eerie and
disturbing here is this: Oct. 12 was Columbus Day! (It
commemorates the day Columbus 'discovered' the New World.)
there is definitely a sense that the New World, or specifically the
United States, is under attack at this time. And indeed the story
presently unfolding around us is the 'end of the American New World'
and the 'birth of the next New World', namely Mars. America/US is
Osiris and Mars is Horus; as one dies, the other is born. Water is
life and time (as per the Time
River model); so the discovery of water on Mars is a signal that
the timeline of human civilization is about to move on to that red New
This has been the
overriding theme here at Etemenanki since even before 9/11/01.
As early as Feb. 22, 2000, I was making
statements like this:
Now, I'm not
sure if I want to say this... but here is something that the data I
have is suggesting to me. It's that the year 2000/2001 is to bring
to the United States one of the biggest events the country has ever
experienced. This is not something I 'believe' or based on
'millennial' mentality; it's just what the data I have... is
suggesting to me. The key concepts attached to this are
termination and 'New World'.
Note that this was right after
the 'Y2K' non-event, when making doomy statements like this was
already out of fashion. (I was actually very un-doomy during the pre-millennial
period when everyone was expecting the world to end, by the way. :))
Nowadays it's quite normal to think that the United States is in its
sunset phase; but before 9/11 it was considered pretty crazy. So,
the point is that I made the above statement - which was based on the
Time River scheme I was decoding behind the scenes - during the period
after the millennial madness and before 9/11 - i.e. when
Of course, in
the first article I wrote after 9/11 (i.e. Mystery,
Babylon the Great), I referred back to the above
statement/prediction; I basically ended the article by quoting it. And
it was immediately preceded by this line:
America is no
longer the 'New World'. Mars is.
And immediately followed by this
Osiris. And Osiris is being resurrected like a rising Morning
Star [= Venus]. It is time for a Total Recall.
'Termination' (of the New
World), 'Mars', 'Total Recall'... And we now have Schwarzenegger the
Terminator, from the Martian film Total Recall, rising rapidly
in the political scene with very shadowy backers... and his eye on the
White House. Well, he will probably terminate something when/if
he gets in there... which may well be his destiny.
so I've been at this a long time and when I say the Unite States will
terminate I'm not coming from a reactionary, alarmist place. I read
the pattern and I point out where it seems to go. And I've long been
detecting that... well, this Titanic called America is nearing its
end. It doesn't necessary have to be a painful and messy thing if
treated properly (which probably won't happen), but the 'big shift' is
coming nonetheless. I mean, it's already here; the next New World is
being born. The big question is: How will the original New World meet
its 'death'? Hopefully, the death won't have to be so literal. It can
still be reborn as Horus...
12, '04 Ides of March, Eye of Horus
saw Spain's version of 9/11, a series of horrific terror bombings
in Madrid that killed about 200 and injured more than a thousand
people. Although I was already working on an article, I decided to put
some of the findings from it here to address the significance of the
big event in a timely manner...
On the very first day of this
year, I stated the following in the first paragraph of my first Etemenanki
post of 2004:
we are... 2004. The way I view this new year is that it will involve
an escalating movement in the direction set in 2003. I would say that
during the foregoing eventful 'year of Mars' and 'stargates', seeds of
the next phase of the 'endgame' were sown and we are about to see them
grow into the inevitable. Good or bad, the key choices were made and
we went through a major 'gate'... The stage is set for the rest of the
story - the 'endgame' - to just unfold like a roller coaster coming
down from the peak. That's the kind of imagery I would associate with
2004 and onward.
The expression 'coming down from
the peak' alludes in part to the current Peak
Oil situation where world oil production is at its
highest point in the projected
bell curve. And 2004 is looking more and more like the year when the
knowledge of this dire condition may go mainstream as its effects -
higher gas price etc. - will begin to force the issue to rise up to the
surface. Within years of Peak Oil (which may already have come in
2000), we are destined to face growing energy crises such as major
Of course, one of the key events that took place during the
'stargate window' (summer/fall '03) was the 'Blackout 2003' that
struck the US east coast in mid-August - just days after
Schwarzenegger announced his decision to run for governor of California,
which is another major event identified as 'stargate'-driven. The
'Total Recall' election also stemmed from California's energy
crisis of 2000, and even the storyline of Arnie's movie Total
Recall involves an energy/air crisis experienced on Mars. So the
'seeds' - or foreshadowing - of the coming Peak Oil crisis were
certainly highlighted in 2003 during the 'stargate window' marked
astronomically by Mars' close approach.
Another major theme attached to
the 'stargate window' was the 'fall of Osiris/Sun-king/Babylon
leader'. We speculated here on Etemenanki that the pattern
would likely manifest through George W. Bush whom I had long
identified as one of the symbolic Osiris/Sun-king/Babylon leader
figures along with the Pope, Saddam, Blair, Sharon, etc. While Bush
did not 'fall' in a direct way, we see that his political fall, which
is strongly manifesting at the present time, began during the mid-2003
period when it was becoming increasingly clear that Iraq had no WMDs.
In the context of 'seeds of 2003 growing in 2004', our attention is
drawn to one of the very serious probings
heating up in Washington at this time, namely the Plame affair, i.e.
the White House's treasonous outing of a CIA operative last summer
during the 'stargate window'. As I said at the time, this scandal
alone can easily
bring down the White House like Nixon's Watergate. But the 'fall'
theme was fulfilled more directly through the fall of Michael Jackson
'Sun-king') last fall and the capture of Saddam Hussein last December
(which had been identified
as an 'echo window').
Now, the concept of the 'fall of
Osiris' is practically interchangeable with that of the 'birth of
Horus' as these are two sides of the same coin in ancient Egyptian
tradition. Osiris' death coincides with Horus' birth. And this was the
context that enabled us to interpret the 'rise of Schwarzenegger' last
summer/fall as the symbolic reenactment of the 'birth of Horus'. Horus
(as well as Osiris) is often equated with Christ. But I also pointed out
that the difference between Christ and Antichrist can be quite blurry;
and based on various clues, I suggested
last summer that Arnie is somehow an 'antichristic' figure. I even suggested
that Schwarzenegger seemed to be on his way to become president of the
United States. And I recently noted
here that this crazy scenario does
seem to be unfolding.
The latest phase of 'Project
Black Eagle', the effort to make Arnie president, was apparently the
mainstream media's subtle but effective push to make people get used to the idea of changing
the Constitution to allow foreign-born citizens to run for the White
House. And this phase has coincided, again, with a period filled with Mars
news - this time thanks to NASA's Spirit and Opportunity
rovers roaming on the Red Planet. But equally important here is the
fact that the currently-active winter/spring '04 'window' has also brought out
the hugely controversial and popular film, The Passion of the
Christ - recreating the final 12 hours of Jesus, i.e. none
other than the 'fall of Osiris/Sun-king'! As Arnie representing Horus
rises, Jesus-Osiris falls...
So we have Mars, Schwarzenegger,
Osirian/Messianic resurrection... Well, as I stated
on Feb. 23: "It's
like the 'stargate
window' all over again..."
Now, the 'stargate window' of
summer/fall 2003 was itself originally projected to be an 'echo window'
of 9/11 (2001). Underlying these 'windows' is the 2-year Martian cycle
first discussed in my 'Message
of Cycle 23' article and extended later in the 'Endgame'
series (especially in 'IV'). Anchoring the temporal cycle is
9/11/01. So the significance of the 'stargate window' was stemming
directly from 9/11. This in turn would further imply that the current
'echo window' is related to 9/11 as well. And here is finally where
yesterday's Madrid bombings begin to emerge as a key event in the big picture.
It is being called the
worst terror attack in Spanish history and already openly compared
to the United States' 9/11. But what's really intriguing (and
disturbing) here is the date, March 11. As already noted in various
places on the internet, it is exactly 6 months away from the date 9/11
and there are exactly 911 days between 9/11/01 and
3/11/04! So there is a definite echo of 9/11 there, thus conforming to
the on-going symbolic pattern.
Extending the calendrical
counting, we happen to find another remarkable 'coincidence'. There
will be exactly 1000 days sandwiched between 9/11/01 and 6/8/04.
What's special about June 8? If you haven't already heard, this day
will bring us perhaps the most significant celestial event of 2004 - the Venus
transit, across the face of the Sun. This is such a rare astronomical
event that the last time this happened was late 19th century.
it more symbolic depth is Janet Jackson's 'nipplegate', the infamous
Super Bowl halftime show stunt on Feb. 1. This was (somehow) one of the biggest events
of the current 'window'. I have already discussed it in depth
last month, showing that Janet
was symbolizing Mary Magdalene (as well as Lady Liberty/Justice etc.),
the supposed lover/wife of Jesus, as re-revealed to the general public
just last year via The
Da Vinci Code. And on Feb. 23
I added the following:
While so much has already been
said about Janet Jackson 'nipplegate', there is still an important
symbolism that no one as far as I know has really detected in the
whole thing. This has to do with the 'nipple ring' or whatever it's
called that partially covered Janet's exposed right breast. As has
been commented in many places, it's in the shape of a 8-pointed star -
or the Sun. [...]
As already explained, Jesus
Christ is very much comparable to Horus-Osiris. And it happens that
Horus is a prominent sun-god. And the Jesus-Horus connection is
most recognized through the almost identical traditional depictions of
Mary/Isis suckling the baby Jesus/Horus. (The Virgin Mary and Mary
Magdalene are sometimes considered interchangeable, especially in the
esoteric/Grail context.) So, the 'Sun' on Janet's breast would quite
easily relate to Horus-Jesus; and mythologically the baby's birth
implies the death of Christ/Osiris...
And now we have a new twist.
Because Mary Magdalene, or Isis the sister-wife of Osiris, is
traditionally identified with Venus and the breast is decidedly a feminine symbol, we can
easily interpret the Sun nipple-ring on Janet's
breast as signifying the Sun covering Venus. And the direct conjunction of
Sun and Venus is exactly what will take place on June 8 this year!
There is much more to this but the rest will be in my upcoming
Okay, let me point out next that
the site of the Jesus' crucifixion was called Golgotha which means the
'Place of the Skull'. This brings our attention to the US
presidential race which is already heating up right now. In Endgame
V (6/22/03) I discussed Bush's Skull & Bones
connection and symbolism. Well,
it turns out that John Kerry - the de facto Democratic presidential
candidate who will run against
Bush - is also a Bonesman. He is a member of the same notorious secret
society at Yale. And his status as the Democratic challenger to Bush was
earlier this month on so-called 'Super Tuesday', March 2. This was
just about a week after The Passion of the Christ opened in
Do you see the amazing
connections? We have a film about the crucifixion of Jesus at
the 'Place of the Skull', followed by the ascension of Kerry who
belongs, as does Bush, to Skull & Bones. And we even had the remarkable coincidence of the big NASA
of Mars' past water coming on the same day, March 2, i.e. 'Super
Yes... 'Super Tuesday'. As you should know, Tuesday is 'Mars
day' (Monday is 'Moon day' Wednesday is 'Mercury day', and so on),
which makes March 2 fittingly 'Super Mars Day'! (And yes, March is
month of Mars.)
Mars is already
embedded deeply in the ongoing pattern, but the fact that it is
traditionally the planet/god of war intensifies the above connection,
because Skull and Bones is known to have a strange obsession with the
idea of war, along with death. Indeed, even 'death' is found
very much encoded in the fabric of the current window.
First of all, 'death' directly
relates to Osiris the death god and the death of Jesus
depicted in The Passion. Additionally we have the fact that Saturn
(the planet/god of death) made
its close approach - a return after 30 years - to Earth around the
very beginning of this year as if to tell us that 2004 is to become the year of
death... or the year of Skull and Bones, also known as the Brotherhood
more, the ringed planet Saturn is quite literally the 'lord of the
rings' and it just happens that the current window very closely overlapped
the triumphant period enjoyed by the film The Lord of the Rings that
opened last December and ruled
this year's Academy Awards held on Feb. 29. Well, February 29 came only 2 days before
'Super Tuesday'! And of course the latest/last installment of the LOTR
series was titled 'The Return of the King' - perfectly
describing the return of Saturn, which as a death-god is equatable
with Osiris-Jesus, the archetypal king of ancient Egypt.
Now, how much influence does Skull and Bones
has on today's world events and..
president of the US? Well,
it is certainly curious to realize that Bush unleashed the 'Shock &
Awe' US bombing campaign against Iraq beginning on the night of March
21-22 last year.
March 22 is 3-22 or 322. And '322' just happens to be the numerical
signature of Skull & Bones.
The Iraq war itself began on March
20 (local time), which too is very telling. March 20 was the day of
the spring equinox when the Sun rises due east. And as I pointed
out immediately before the war on March 18, the spring equinox
was/is also a major 'Mars day':
Sphinx at Giza is a representation of Mars (as can be inferred from
the tradition of ancient Egypt) as well as Horus who in turn
personifies the rising sun. And because the Sphinx faces due east,
it becomes perfectly aligned with its celestial counterpart - the
rising sun - on the equinoxes, when the sun rises due east. As per
the Sphinx-Mars equation, then, the equinoxes are also to be
considered important Mars days.
March 20, '03,
the spring equinox in the month of Mars, is therefore... a fitting
date to be incorporated into the US war on terrorism stemming from
9/11 ( 2 years ago); indeed, as Mars is traditionally the
planet/god of war, March 20 is in effect a 'war day'.
In other words, March 20, '03
was (and every spring equinox day is) 'Super Mars Day'. So this
certainly deepens the symbolism of John Kerry's 'Super Tuesday'
victory that coincided with NASA's Mars announcement, doesn't it?
But there is more. Here is what
I was recently told by an Etemenanki reader:
Kerry was born in Denver,
Colorado. Colorado is a Spanish word that means 'red color'.
Since Mars is the Red
Planet, this is interesting. But he continued:
The official seal of Colorado has
a 'Roman fasces', sign from the roman empire that means 'power' and
'destruction' and is the symbol of the emperors. This seal was approved
on 15 of March (Mars again) of 1877. Another 15 of march [of 44 BC], Julius Caesar died. So both things,
the emperor and the Colorado's official seal are linked over the time.
there is an intense web of symbolism here. First, the fall of Caesar -
which we can associate with the 'fall of Osiris/Sun-king' theme -
strongly evokes the storyline of the recent Pepsi commercial
that we have already interpreted (on Feb. 17
& 23) as the continuation of
the symbolic message conveyed by Janet Jackson's Super Bowl stunt. In
the ad, three rebellious female gladiators (Pink, Britney, and Beyonce)
causes the fall of a Greco-Roman-looking king, played by Enrique
Inglesias. Here, even the religious/Jesus theme returns. As I was
informed by a couple of observant readers, the name 'Enrique' means
'home ruler' and 'Inglesias' means 'church'. So the Roman 'king' in
the commercial who is brought down by the rebels would be the 'home
ruler of the Church' - i.e. the Pope in Rome. (The Pope is one of the
figures I've dubbed the 'Babylon leader'.) This may be a quite
specific hint of things to come... soon.
Even more startling is the fact
that March 15, Caesar's 'Ides of March', is directly associated with
the crucifixion of Jesus himself! As long-time correspondent Glenn
recently told me:
...March 15th a.k.a. 'The Ides
of March'. Shakespeare (better known as Sir Francis Bacon) slipped in
the clue in his play 'Julius Caesar' - "Beware the Ides of
March" - in which Caesar was warned that his friends would take
him out. ...it is also known as the Catholic
Feast day of St. Longinus. The same Longinus whom pierced the side of
Christ with the Spear of Destiny!!
And this 'Spear of Destiny'
takes us right back to the Pepsi commercial because we have
already talked about (Feb. 23)
the symbolism of the three ladies in the ad being a reference to the
'three goddesses of fate' in Norse mythology called Norne. 'Fate' and
'destiny' are pretty much interchangeable words, after all.
What's more, we've already discussed
how the reverse of 'Norne' is 'Enron' and how Schwarzenegger is linked
to this energy company. So we are again back to Arnold, the messianic
'Antichrist'. And sure enough, Spear of Destiny is said to have been
possessed or at least sought by various messianic and antichristic
leaders throughout history like Herod the Great, Constantine, Hitler,
etc. The Spear represents the power that Antichrist must obtain in
order to be successful. So obviously there is a coherent symbolic
me now point out that Arnie's most recent film was Terminator 3:
Rise of the Machines released just last year (overlapping the
'stargate window', of course... and note that the terminators in the
story come from the future through a 'stargate' machine). As you can
see in the Terminator 3 graphic shown left, the Arnie Terminator
has only one active red eye. We can easily view this as an allusion to
'HAL', the AI machine in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey which
similarly has only one glowing red 'eye'. And of course HAL rebels
against its human masters. Thus the story of 2001/HAL is very
much about the 'rise of the machines'. And '2001' being the year of
9/11, the 'stargate window' connection is certainly
But the real punch line here is
this: as Glenn correctly pointed out to me, Longinus who pierced the
side of Jesus with his 'Spear of Destiny' had
only one eye! (He was blind in one eye, but was healed by
Jesus' blood.) And, in the film The Passion, Jesus is mostly...
you guess it, one-eyed.
Needless to say, this one eye
symbolism relates to the Eye of Horus, or the 'All-Seeing Eye' of the
pyramid capstone that you see on the back of the US dollar bill. It
symbolizes Osirian resurrection, seed/sex, Mars, New World Order...
etc. etc. all very relevant. Birth of Horus, birth of Antichrist -
that would probably the strongest concept conveyed by all this.
So, let me conclude this long
update by stating that we are likely in for some very significant 'antichristic'
events in the near future - as early as this month. Key dates coming
up are March 15 (Ides of March, feast day of St. Longinus) and around
March 20 (spring equinox/'Super Mars Day') and/or March 22 ('322'/'Skulll
& Bones day').
I'd say there is a high
probability that the spring equinox window coming up will produce some
significant event(s) that will conform to the pattern discussed above.
Because not only is March 20 the 'Super Mars/Sphinx/Horus Day', the
spring equinox is traditionally the day of the rebirth of the Sun
(-king), i.e. birth of Horus/Christ/Antichrist. Furthermore, ~March 20
this year is astronomically emphasized in a very meaningful way. As
Gary, a close observer of the heavens, recently informed me:
...the Sun , New Moon
and both comets [Linear and Neat] will be aligned along the 0h right ascension /meridian
He's right. Those four celestial
objects will closely align along the 'zero longitude' of the sky grid
on March 20/21. What I find particularly interesting here is the
potential connection between the term 'longitude' and the name 'Longinus'.
I don't think it's a mere coincidence that Longinus is associated with
a lance, i.e. a straight line... such as a longitudinal line
(meridian), especially since Jesus' blood/bloodline is esoterically
associated with a meridian called 'Rose Line' (more or less equated
with the Paris Zero Meridian). And this certainly increases the
symbolic depth of the longitudinal celestial alignment formed around
the spring equinox coming up shortly.
Okay, there is much more to talk
about but that's enough for this update. :)
9, '04 Endgame In Space
January 7, we talked
a lot here about the hidden agenda behind the sudden US interest in
outer space. We've discussed, in conjunction with our long-running
themes like 9/11, Cheney/PNAC, Iraq, Mars, 'rise of the
Schwarzenegger', (and now Peak Oil) etc., how the sudden focus on
space is really driven by the Cheney/PNAC crowd's plan to 1) weaponize
space, and 2) get their oily hands on energy resources existing out
there (eg. the Moon and Mars). Mars of course has been the cornerstone
of our 'endgame' discussion since day one here at Etemenanki
and so it was natural for us to view all the recent space
developments, including the 'water on Mars' NASA announcement, as a
significant step forward in the big 'game'. Consequently it was
quickly inferred that the agenda to weaponize and exploit space was a
key part of the grand 'endgame'.
Well, just yesterday Rense.com
posted a very timely article
that seems to corroborate/enhance this view. It has to do with the
insider knowledge of Wernher
von Braun passed onto Carol
Rosin, a Space and Missile
Defense Consultant and a
former Corporate Manager of Fairchild Industries. It concerns a grand
'game' being played by some cabal inside the United States. Wernher
von Braun, as briefly mentioned in Endgame
II, was director of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center who originally
worked for the Third Reich.
We learn that Rosin told the Disclosure
Project the following back in December 2000:
We first met
in early 1974. At that time, Von Braun was dying of cancer but he
assured me that he would live a few more years to tell me about the
game that was being played- that game being the effort to
weaponize space, to control the Earth from space and space itself.
[...] Von Braun's purpose during the last years of his life, his
dying years, was to educate the public and decision-makers about why
space-based weapons are dumb, dangerous, destabilizing, too costly,
unnecessary, unworkable, and an undesirable idea, and about the
alternatives that are available. As practically a deathbed speech,
he educated me about those concepts and who the players were in this
game. He gave me the responsibility, since he was dying, of
continuing this effort to prevent the weaponization of outer space.
We now see that this information
was chillingly 'prophetic', especially when the following is added:
that Wernher Von Braun taught me was that first the Russians are
going to be considered to be the enemy. [...] Then terrorists
would be identified, and that was soon to follow. We heard a lot
about terrorism. Then we were going to identify third-world
country "crazies." We now call them Nations of
Concern. But he said that would be the third enemy against whom we
would build space-based weapons.
Keep in mind that this interview
was recorded more than a year before 9/11. What comes after
this, according to Rosin/von Braun, will be 'asteroids':
The next enemy
was asteroids. Now, at this point he kind of chuckled the first time
he said it. [...]
This is very curious given the
ongoing 'Planet X' rumors going around in cyberspace.
So at this point it appears this
supposed 'game' is unfolding very rapidly before our eyes. Indeed,
Rosin tells us:
What he told
me was that there is an accelerated effort in place. He didn't
mention a timeline but he said that it was going to be speeding up
faster than anybody could possibly imagine. That the effort to put
weapons into space was not only based on a lie but would accelerate
past the point of people even understanding it until it was already
up there and too late.
This certainly sounds very
realistic now. With all the Mars buzz and the fear created/sustained
by the 'war on terror', going into space with weapons is getting much
easier to accomplish at this time and it is already beginning...
Another thing we apparently can expect to
emerge soon is the 'alien card', as Rosin stated:
funniest one of all was what he called aliens, extraterrestrials.
That would be the final scare. And over and over and over
during the four years that I knew him and was giving speeches for
him, he would bring up that last card. "And remember Carol, the
last card is the alien card. We are going to have to build
space-based weapons against aliens and all of it is a lie."
This would be a crazy idea if we
weren't already living in a crazy world in a crazy period... And this would neatly tie in with
the view expressed here at Etemenanki
since early January that a carefully-controlled 'Mars disclosure' is
likely unfolding now - the recent Mars water announcement
being the latest example/confirmation of this process.
Rosin also stated:
What was most
interesting to me was a repetitive sentence that he said to me over
and over again during the approximately four years that I had the
opportunity to work with him. He said the strategy that was being
used to educate the public and decision makers was to use scare
tactics. That was how we identify an enemy.
'Scare tactics'... Well, in our
post-9/11 world that's an eerily familiar theme, isn't it? Now, it is
no secret that I've been critical of the Bush administration
and I'm sure some readers have felt that I was getting overly
'political'. Hopefully, the above information helps get the idea
across that the level of the issues we're dealing with here would go
much deeper than the usual, silly 'conservative vs. liberal' political
Finally, if you're wondering
about Carol Rosin's
credibility, check out the following:
I [Rosin] am a
Space and Missile Defense Consultant and have consulted to a number
of companies, organizations, and government departments, even the
intelligence community. I was a consultant to TRW working on the MX
missile, so I was part of that strategy, which turned out to be a
role model for how to sell space-based weapons to the public. The MX
missile is yet another weapon system that we didn't need. I founded
the Institute for Security and Cooperation in Outer Space, a
Washington DC based think tank. I am an author and have testified
before Congress and the President's Commission on Space.
That's pretty heavy credentials.
And consequently we can't just ignore her heavy information -
especially given all the events that took place after her pre-9/11
We can take this as yet another
clue telling us that the 'Endgame' is indeed in progress. Yep, time to wake
up and smell the diminishing oil fields!
say two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999
Well, close enough... We can
still party like it's 2011! :)
5, '04 Tip of the Endgame Iceberg
currently working on a new article to discuss various subjects that
are relevant to the present and near future, which I plan to upload
here next week. In the meantime let me 'briefly' go through a number
of issues that we will probably be talking about a lot in the coming
weeks and months (most notably 'Peak Oil').
First, continuing the discussion
from the previous entry, I must say I'm definitely seeing more signs
that there is indeed a plan of some kind to have Arnold Schwarzenegger
elected as president of the United Sates sometime in the near future.
I was amazed when the issue of changing the Constitution to allow
foreign-born citizens to run for the White House was thrown in by
Larry King during last week's Democratic presidential debate
televised on CNN. Here is the transcript:
KING: I see. Should
foreign-born -- be a change of Constitution and become president?
KERRY: Do you have a California interest?
KING: Just asking. I have no particular...
SHARPTON: As long as they don't have a record of being
KING: What you favor that?
KERRY: I've never really thought about it that much.
I can tell you that all the
candidates looked perplexed when Larry came up with this question. The
expression of 'What kind of question is that?' was on all of their
What made the question
marginally relevant though was the currently raging issue of same-sex
marriage. As you know, Bush few weeks earlier had announced that he
was considering changing the Constitution in order to ban gay
marriage. Earlier this year Bush also made another controversial
announcement regarding illegal aliens, which, now that we think about
it, had subtly helped the 'Arnold amendment' issue become more
Without this background conveniently
set up by the White House, Tim Russert couldn't and wouldn't have brought
up the same 'Arnold amendment' question in late February on NBC's Meet
the Press. Same goes for Larry King last week.
It seems pretty clear that there
was a decision made by some shadowy board of the big media to cleverly
make the Arnie amendment an issue at this time... probably what could
be considered the 'Phase 1' of this part of the 'endgame'. All of the
sudden, the general public became aware of the issue and the
previously farfetched idea of Arnie running for president in the
future has entered the collective consciousness of the US in a
indirect but major way. I'd have to call this a well-planned and executed
While I'm sure there are various
plausible political reasons, that Bush should suddenly make such controversial
and risky pronouncements (i.e. concerning illegal alien and gay
marriage) to, unwittingly or not, help 'Project Black Eagle' (i.e. the
apparent plan to make Arnie elected as president) tells me that there
are pretty powerful 'forces' at work here. It almost seems as if
Bush's popularity is being sacrificed for the 'rise of the machine'.
This inevitably brings to mind the Osirian resurrection theme that we
have already associated with the Bush-Arnie relationship. As Osiris
falls, Horus the son/sun rises.
Speaking of falling, I'm still
closely monitoring the Cheney situation. As I stated in the Feb.
9 entry, my view is that Cheney is a goner. I know Bush recently
said he will have Cheney as his running mate for the election coming
up in November, and yet I'm still detecting some disconnect between
the Bush/Rove camp and the Cheney/neocon camp. Bush himself may not be
aware, but I'd say his powerful political adviser Karl Rove must be
scheming to dump Cheney.
Even the mainstream media has
been speculating on this lately, but in general they seem to think
that Cheney's exit is likely to come, if it comes at all, around the
time of the Republican National Convention this summer. I don't think
that's a very plausible scenario. I'd say the exit should come earlier
A big factor here is that the
Convention this year will be held in New York. The original plan was
to exploit the 9/11 sentiment, obviously. But since this decision was
made a long time ago things have changed greatly. Things did not go
according to the plan. No WMDs in Iraq; Iraq becoming Vietnam 2;
pre-war intelligence scandal; etc. The non-discovery of Iraqi WMDs
caused the neocon master plan to simply collapse. The Bush White House
is no longer popular in the US - especially in places like New
Rove of course realizes that the
NY convention is a PR disaster waiting to happen. It's not
difficult to foresee a massive number of protesters in the streets;
and it will be very difficult for the Rovians to hide them from Bush
(as they usually do) or from the media cameras. Many in the country
will finally witness perhaps for the first time just how much Bush/the
White House is really despised even inside the US.
This is something Rove can't
allow to take place. So it would become necessary to reduce the level
of anger existing out there. Dumping Cheney would certainly be one of
the effective options in this light. But in terms of preventing the
Republican convention from becoming a self-defeating gathering, it
would make no sense to announce this at the convention - when people
will be already angrily protesting outside. And so it would be much
more logical to anticipate Cheney's exit before the New York event.
Put New York's own 9/11 hero Giuliani into the Vice-President slot and
it will be very hard for New Yorkers to express their anger this
summer. This would be a very clever move and something Rove must be
thinking about a lot.
Based on various factors, I'd
say Cheney is likely to be taken off the 2004 presidential
ticket by early summer. But of course, things like a major 'terrorist'
attack in the US or the capture of Osama bin Laden would change the
situation dramatically... So, we'll see.
Now, notice that the present
phase of the 'rise of Arnie' is directly overlapping the period filled
with Mars-related news. This conforms to the familiar pattern detected
last summer - i.e. Arnie entering politics in August when Mars
was making its close approach to Earth (closest in 60,000 years). This
time, at the beginning period of 2004, Mars has become a regular face
in the news because of the NASA rovers Spirit and Opportunity
exploring the surface of the Red Planet since early January. And it
was just three days ago on March 2 that NASA held a conference and
made the big announcement,
revealing hard evidence of past water on Mars.
This was fully anticipated, as I
on January 7:
We can also
probably look forward to a convenient discovery of strong evidence
showing that there was/is indeed water and/or life on Mars. This would
surely make headlines all over the world and get people excited.
Well... Check! :)
In the same update I also wrote
this concerning the issue of the color of Mars:
scenario that may unfold soon would be that 'they' will gradually
make the new Martian pictures from Spirit/Opportunity
less and less red and then comment - 'Hey look, it turns out that Mars
is actually a lot like Earth... I guess all the pictures from the
Martian surface so far had been affected by red dusts put into the
atmosphere by storms... How interesting!' Well, I guess that just
might work given how unquestioning the press and public have
become these days. Who knows.
If you've been following my 'Hidden Colors of Mars...'
page, you know that this scenario indeed appears to be unfolding as
discussed before (see the Jan. 26
entry for instance), on the exoteric level the major driving force
behind the sudden focus on Mars and space in general is the PNAC
agenda championed by Cheney and his neoconservative minions. It's
about militarization and exploitation of space. And yes, even
Halliburton, the increasingly notorious oil company formerly headed by
Cheney, is involved in the United States' sudden interest in
Oil, or energy in
general, is indeed a big piece of the puzzle in all this. And that's
probably an understatement. Let me put this in proper perspective: we
are here literally looking at the closest thing to, if not literally,
'the end of the world'... because the world production of oil is
peaking at this time. And once peaked, the industrial world is
destined to totally collapse - much faster and more dramatically
than we would have guessed.
This is 'Peak
a recent interview, Matthew Simmons... [energy adviser to
Geroge W. Bush]... [w]hen asked if it was time for Peak Oil to
become part of the public policy debate, Simmons responded:
It is past
time. As I have said, the experts and politicians have no Plan B
to fall back on. If energy peaks, particularly while 5 of the
world’s 6.5 billion people have little or no use of modern
energy, it will be a tremendous jolt to our economic well-being
and to our health — greater than anyone could ever imagine.
When asked if
there is a solution, Simmons responded:
think there is one. The solution is to pray. Under the best
of circumstances, if all prayers are answered there will be no
crisis for maybe two years. After that it’s a certainty.
here is one theorized post-peak timeline:
post-peak: Major recession comparable to those experienced
during the artificially created oil shortages of the 1970's.
post-peak: Recession worsens into a second Great Depression.
post-peak: Society begins to collapse. Conditions in the
United States begin to resemble those in the modern day former
(It's speculated that this then
leads to over 90% of the current human population dying off...)
The above timeline actually seems
quite optimistic to me. Because chances are we will have World War III
and/or nuclear detonations soon after Peak Oil. It's not like
industrial nations will just sit back and deal with severe oil/energy shortage,
as we can easily imagine.
So when does the peak of oil
production come? Indications are that it already came
Now you begin to wonder, don't
you? Near the end of 2000, two oil men, Bush and Cheney, were
installed in the White House through a very strange 'election'; early
2001 Cheney put together an energy task force to secretly discuss
energy issues with those in the industry (the White House/Cheney is
still resisting to release the details of the publicly-funded secret
meeting, and the issue is now
in the hands of the Supreme Court); then soon after came '9/11'; and
then thanks largely to the intelligence manipulation done by Cheney
and his neoconservative network, the US was somehow to respond by
invading Iraq, the land of... oil.
So we can't really avoid the
question: Is there a connection
between Peak Oil, Cheney's energy task force, 9/11, and Iraq? One
thing is for certain: the seemingly insane actions - and there are
many - taken by the Bush White House begin to make more sense when the
answer is 'yes' to the above question.
Even the related Schwarzenegger
theme we have going is very suggestive of the importance of Peak Oil.
First of all, the big financial mess in California that led to the
recall of Governor Gray Davis and the election of Arnie stemmed from
the energy crisis experienced by the state around/since 2000.
(Arnie even secretly enjoyed the support of the corrupt energy company
Secondly, as already mentioned,
the recall election last summer coincided with Mars becoming
the dominating light in the night sky; and one of Arnold's most
popular films is 'Total Recall' which is all about the Red
Planet. 'Recall' and Mars - the parallel is uncanny. But what's
important here is the storyline of Total Recall because it
happens to involve the issue of controlling energy supply.
Actually it's air supply, not literally oil. Still the symbolic
meaning is clear enough. After all, people on the Red Planet would be
as dependent on air as people on earth are dependent on oil.
So, we being to get a better
understanding of what Schwarzenegger's rapid political ascension is
for. As the situation worsens in the post-peak period, it will
probably be considered necessary to declare martial law. And it will
take a special kind of charismatic and manipulatable leader/president
to implement it. From what we have observed so far, Schwarzenegger
appears to be the chosen one for this job. 'Martial law'... 'Mars
rule'... Well, the appropriate symbolism is there at least.
As long as we're
discussing things related to movies, I might as well mention the 'end
of the world' film, Armageddon
(1998), starring Bruce Willis et al. Let me get right to the point: Do
you think it's just a coincidence that the main characters in this
movie released just before 2000 (i.e. the probable oil-peak year) are oil
drillers? They save the world by drilling in space. After
what we've discussed above, this must ring a bell.
Now, the storyline
of Armageddon on the surface is about a space rock headed for
Earth, thus the resultant race against time to save the world by nuking
the rock (hmm...). Here I'd like to point out something to those who
follow the 'Planet X' theories still going around on the net. (The
idea somehow didn't fade away after the initially claimed 'encounter'
time of May 2003 came and went without any sign of 'Planet X'.) Simply
put, this supposed doomsday celestial body called 'Planet X' is to be
considered a metaphor for Peak Oil, which is indeed here now to cause
the end of the world as we know it... There is no denying that this is
an interpretation found 'encoded' in in the film Armageddon.
So there you go.
It's the end of the world as we know it and... I'm not sure if I feel
fine. :) I guess Prince was right after all. 1999 was the time
to party like there is no tomorrow!
(Now, is there oil
on Mars or not? Well, I'll just say there will be something...)
