Blackstar Shockwave

David Bowie, Super Bowl & Gravitational Waves

By Goro Adachi

February 10, 2016



On February 11, LIGO - the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory - is expected to announce at the National Press Club in Washington DC they have detected gravitational waves from colliding black holes. Some call it the most important breakthrough in modern science.

As expected, such a major novelty comes with intense multicontextual (i.e. symbolic/synchronistic) "whispers". In this article I'd like to quickly point out how this scientific discovery interacts with and was foreshadowed by the passing of David Bowie (Jan 10) and the Super Bowl (Feb 07).

  
     


Though a lot has already been said about the heavy symbolism of David Bowie's passing accompanied by his new song/video & album, Blackstar...


...no one seem to have paid attention to the typical depiction of gravitational distortion on the cover of the Blackstar single (song):



Per Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, massive objects like planets and stars warp the fabric of spacetime around it, producing an invisible pull called "gravity".



Gravity was discovered by Isaac Newton supposedly when he saw an apple fall from a tree...


...resonating with Super Bowl 50:
  • A black star quarterback named "Newton" took a big fall
Feb 07 Cam Newton walks out of Super Bowl press conference
after giving one-word answers
Feb 08 Cam Newton, Sacked Six Times, Brings Himself Down
Feb 08 Newton's image took the biggest hit of all during Super Bowl
  •  The first song Coldplay performed at the Super Bowl (halftime show) was Viva la Vida, which back in 2008 was memorably used in Apple's TV commercial
  • Coldplay's front man Chris Martin named his daughter "Apple"
"Black stars" at Super Bowl 50:
  • Cam Newton is a black star quarterback (NFL MVP)
  • "The Panthers are the most unapologetically black team in NFL history" (source)
  • The halftime show was very black in nature due to Beyonce's all-black group all dressed in black and Bruno Mars' all-black group all dressed in black, amplified by the controversial black power/Black Panther message telegraphed by Beyonce
       UPDATES:
  • The Black Panther Party's founder/original leader was named Newton (Huey P. Newton)
  • David Bowie in the 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth played the main character named Thomas Jerome Newton
  • Bowie's Blackstar (song) was used as opening music for the television series The Last Panthers directed by Johan Renck who also directed the music video for Blackstar. [h/t reader Szabolcs]
Gravity (Newton/apple) and black star(s)...

Notice the "black star" creating a "gravity well" is invisible in the Blackstar single cover art... a la Planet X or more pertinently here a black hole.

1. Planet X

Strong evidence for the existence of Planet X or "Planet Nine" was announced on January 20th, 2016, mere 10 days after the passing of David Bowie and 12 days after the release of his new album Blackstar.


The scientists did not see the planet. Instead, they inferred its existence from examining the peculiar clustering of six previously known objects that orbit beyond Neptune, theorizing that the clustering has been caused by the gravitational pull of the hidden giant, Planet Nine/X. An invisible planet - a "black star" - leaving behind only gravitation effects.

2. Black Hole

Black holes, by definition, are invisible. They are "black" because not even light can escape their extreme gravity. Not surprisingly "black star" or "dark star" is a scientific term for what is essentially a black hole, i.e. a star whose gravity is strong enough to trap light.

It is in this context that we are seeing this announcement about gravitational waves from colliding black holes, 4 days after Super Bowl 50.


Astronomers may finally have found elusive gravitational waves, the mysterious ripples in the fabric of spacetime whose existence was first predicted by Albert Einstein in 1916, in his famous theory of general relativity.
Scientists are holding a news conference Thursday (Feb. 11) at 10:30 a.m. EST (1530 GMT) at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to discuss the search for gravitational waves, which zoom through space at the speed of light. [...]

...LIGO has detected gravitational waves produced by the merger of two black holes. The discovery will be published Thursday in the prestigious journal Nature...
We may even have seen a simulation of colliding black holes at the Super Bowl (halftime)...



Two "black forces" did collide
in the form of Beyonce (and her all-female, all-black dancers dressed in black) and Bruno Mars (and his all-male, all-black dancers dressed in black) aggressively walking toward each other from opposite sides of the stage for a dance-off... where a black hole-like vortex ignited and released energy ("gravitational waves").


Planet X/Nine, gravitational waves, perhaps to be followed by a confirmation of CERN's possible LHC discovery announced back in December potentially having to do with dark matter, hidden dimensions, and/or... graviton. Also the issue of the blinking star/alien megastructure but that's for another time...




Hello from the other side... Seems we are entering a period of dark and heavy stuff coming out of the "Underworld". Are you ready?
