 January 31, '05   Destruction of Atlantis Then & Now

[Note: When I wrote 'big post coming soon', I wasn't exaggerating - this is probably the longest blog post in the history of Etemenanki and I even seriously considered giving it a stand-alone article status but decided against it for various reasons (but it will probably be a basis for a future 'full-length' article). So... get comfortable and get a cup of coffee for this one if you're a coffee-drinker like me ... and good luck. :)]

In this latest installment of the 'Great Flood' series, we'll shift our focus back to last year's Athens Olympics pinpointed as the epicenter of the months-long 'super torch ritual' complex that ominously preceded the high-impact 'Great Flood' event the world witnessed in December, fulfilling the 'damage plan' that was in effect 'leaked' beforehand by the 'omens'. I will show in this post how the coming catastrophe did not come without 'warning', how it was partially deciphered before the event, and what it may tell us about the coming weeks, months, and years.

It was back on October 23 last year that I posted Part 1 of the Stargate Cipher 2012 series in which I presented my in-depth examination of the extensive web of symbolism transmitted at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Athens Olympics. The way I interpreted it, what the world saw, most without any conscious comprehension, were in effect the seeds of the future - a compressed preview of what's to come in the coming years.

If my assessment there was valid, an earthshaking event - literally in this case - like the 'Great Flood' event on Dec 26 would surely be intimated within the 'preview' show or else my observations would have to be considered questionable or without any practical value. So let me first address that issue directly and it is in fact quite easy to demonstrate that the modern version of the 'Great Flood' was anticipated by the pattern discussed in Stargate Cipher 2012. Indeed, in was in the section right at the very beginning of Part 1 that I stated the following, specifically mentioning the Great Flood (emphasis added):

The 'Contact' scenario is shaping up to be a test to determine how wise we are, so that the supposed 'Watchers' - whoever or whatever they are - would be able to take appropriate actions as needed. This brings to mind the story of Eden and the Flood in the Book of Genesis - and it's becoming increasingly apparent that we're in a way actually living it right now. Human civilization may well be 'aborted' within decades if not years depending on how well we do on the 'test'.

In the Sumerian version of the story ('Eridu Genesis'), the gods led by Enlil decide to wipe out mankind, but one god - Enki - finds a way to warn Ziusudra, a Noah figure, instructing him to build a boat in which to survive the coming cataclysm. Enki does this by ostensibly 'talking to a wall' as Ziusudra listens nearby thus technically avoiding direct communication. In other words, the important instructions for building an ark, for going through the 'stargate', come in secret... in code, to be received by the wise only.

That's how it's done... apparently since the 'time of Genesis'. And as was then, so is now. The warning and instructions are to be hidden between the lines; they are to be in disguise so as not to become an open public announcement. The purpose is not to inform everyone, but to inform only those who deserve it, so to speak. [...]

In this article will be presented findings - some of them dark indeed - that may well turn out to be the modern version of Enki's secret communication - a warning, a test, transmitted by the 'Enki faction' of a certain 'cabal' in anticipation of the coming 'end of time'...

In other words, I made the point there that the coded 'message' quietly transmitted at the Athens Olympics was essentially - while not trying to be dramatic - the modern equivalent of the instructions 'God' gave to Noah before the Great Flood so that Noah, or mankind, might build an Ark and ensure the continuation of life on the planet. Combine this with the fact that I later went on to point ahead to late-December as a particularly important window and there is a pretty good case to be made that through the Olympics symbolism as well as the broader 'super torch ritual' complex surrounding it, a slice of the future had indeed been previewed to a significant degree.

To bolster the above stance here is a new observation we can add to the timing aspect of the catastrophe. We have already made much of the fact that there is a highly significant link between the late December period and the time of the Venus Transit in June last year, a rare celestial phenomenon that anchors our 'super torch ritual' that on an earthly plane culminated at the Athens Olympics. More specifically the emphasis was placed on Venus' crossing of the Galactic Meridian ( = Milky Way's longitude 0/180 deg.) which took place just 3 days after the Transit of Venus on June 11 (and again on July 4). The Transit itself roughly speaking also took place at the Galactic Meridian. See illustrations:

June 8, '04

June 11, '04

You should recall that it was on June 11 that former president Ronald Reagan was buried near Los Angeles following a week-long, elaborate national funerary proceedings, who had died on June 5, just 3 days before the Transit of Venus. Given that the 'occult star' of the grand 'super torch ritual' already underway by then was Arnold Schwarzenegger, playing the role of the 'Torch Bearer' as well as 'the Olympian', it was fitting that Arnold was right there at the final day of the Reagan event in California as the state's governor, going through a very intricate ritual scheme hidden from most observers, when Venus, known as the 'light-bearer', was right at the Galactic Center (following the Transit).

Venus' next crossing of the Galactic Meridian on July 4/Independence Day (celebration of the iconic 'torch bearer', Lady Liberty) took place at -19.5 latitude very close to the 'Bull's Eye' star Aldebaran, also known as 'Torch Bearer'.

All this was discussed here many times already, before and after the Olympics. And it was due to this that I was able to pinpoint the time around December 29 as a key window for a major 'ritual' event as it was on that day that Venus again found itself crossing the GM. As I wrote back in mid-December:

...I will be very closely monitoring the days around Dec 28 which will feature 1) Mercury-Venus conjunction, 2) Mercury crossing the Galactic Meridian on 12/26-27, 3) Saturn positioned on the 'dark side' of the Moon on 12/27-28, and most importantly, 4) Venus crossing the Galactic Meridian on 12/29.

While I did include Dec 26 as part of the window, I obviously put more emphasis on Dec 29 than the tsunami day. Actually I could have easily pinpointed that exact day - if I had only remembered that in addition to 1) Mercury's GM-crossing, 2) the full Moon configuration, and 3) a Sun-Venus-Mars alignment, we had the exoteric main event of Venus in 2004, i.e. the Transit phenomenon, coming 3 days before Venus' GM-crossing in June. This translates to a 'flashy' (or actually 'dark') event taking place 3 days before Dec 29, i.e. Dec 26, the day of the southeast Asian 'Great Flood'. And that's - albeit in hindsight - precision.

The reason I keep coming back to the issue of how my timing analysis could have been easily refined is to show that the exact date of the biggest event of 2004 was predictable. And predictable denotes pattern... or even further, 'ritualistic'.

Ritualistic especially combined with what I had come up with the crossing of the Galactic Meridian by the Sun on December 8/9. Because the Transit of Venus (= Venus-Sun union) almost coincided with Venus' GM-crossing, meaning the Sun's GM-crossing too would be relevant to the pattern, I had inferred that the Sun repeating this crossing movement on Dec 8/9 should produce some kind of meaningful event reflecting the underlying pattern. Its significance was amplified by the Venusian pregnancy time code scheme found woven into the 'super torch ritual', presented first here on Dec 3. It basically postulates that there have been 'conception rituals' surrounding Venus, the Olympics, and such - but most prominently expressed by the union of the Sun and Venus, i.e. the Transit - that have resulted in prompting the notion of pregnancy duration following those moments conception. Based on the human gestation period, Venus-Mary could be inferred to give birth to a 'messianic' child of the Sun, 'Horus', after 9 months. This was a storyline found very much stressed during the opening ceremony of the Athens Olympics (see picture right).


As the chart above shows, the GM-crossing by the Sun on Dec 8/9 was found to be in perfect harmony with the overlaid scheme, specifically the pregnancy period stemming from Spain's Madrid train bombings on March 11, '04. Not only was 'Spain's 9/11' something I found to be 'prophesied' in code in Schwarzenegger's 2003 film that seemed to have had the function of announcing the 'rise of Schwarzenegger the politician', Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, the terror event also:

  1. Took place near the Atocha station close to which is the Retiro park where stands 'El Angel Caido', the world's only statue dedicated solely to Lucifer, the light-bearer/Venus.

  2. Took place on 3/11 to produce the number '311', which happens to be the numerical designation given to the left eye of the celestial Bull (Taurus), the other eye being Aldebaran the 'Torch Bearer'.

  3. Took place on 3/11/04 to create the number '3114', corresponding to the year (3114 BC) taken by the Venus-driven Mayan calendar to be its start point - a calendar that is actually theorized to use the specific date August 13, 3114 BC (supposedly dubbed the 'Birth of Venus'), or the opening date picked for the Athens Olympics, as its beginning point, and a calendar that is famously slated to end on Dec 21, 2012.

  4. Took place in Madrid, the city that derives its name from Mayrit (referring to the River Manzanares), meaning 'source of water' or 'rich in abundance of waters' - very much evocative of the Hyades star cluster where Aldebaran/'Torch Bearer' and 'star 311' reside which too is traditionally a very watery place, having been called 'the rainy ones', 'a watery constellation' and such.

Both #3 and #4 above interact with the city of Columbus in Ohio (Columbus/Columba/Columbia being a big theme in the 'super torch ritual'), the only place where Schwarzenegger delivered an in-person speech in support of Bush who also was there to campaign in late October last year. The outcome of the election days later would then come down to the electoral vote of Ohio, becoming the Florida of this election, which after an overnight counting went to Bush thus making him (unofficially) the winner on November 3. Outside of the US, this date would be typically written '3/11/04', i.e. another '3114 (BC)' Mayan-calendar/Venus date. And like Madrid of the former '3/11/04', Ohio's name comes from a river, the Ohio River, and means 'great water'.

So, is it any wonder that it was a relatively big event in Columbus, Ohio late December 8, the day of the Sun's GM-crossing and the 'birth day' stemming from Madrid/3-11, that captured my attention? This was, of course, the 'ritualistic' shooting event at a heavy metal concert that left the former guitarist of Pantera and then of Damageplan named 'Dimebag' Darrel, a guitar hero to many, dead, making international news.

There was much that was highly 'ritualistic' about the strange event, as discussed before - the most 'eye-popping' being its undeniable connection to The Wizard of Oz, the classic film that I had already detected as a major theme woven into the closing ceremony of the Athens Olympics. (See Stargate Cipher 2012: Part 2.) There was also much intimated through the name 'Pantera' within the context of the shooting 'ritual', relating to the (son of the) 'Sun' ('Ben Pandira' & 'Pa-ntr-ra') in accordance with the Venusian/solar birth theme and to 'panthers', the significance of which goes all the way back to the 2004 Super Bowl (involving Janet Jackson's 'nipplegate') held in Houston on the anniversary of the space shuttle Columbia disaster, quickly identified as an 'omen' and kick-started the 'super torch ritual', as one of the teams playing there was the Panthers.

Now, believe me, if it were up to me I would rather not talk so extensively about things like Janet's nipplegate or Eminem or the Damageplan concert shooting that are normally more or less 'tabloid' stuff (not to make light of the death of 'Dimebag'). Hollywood movies are one thing, as they are today's equivalent of myth (as in coded ancient tales), but showbiz idols? I don't personally have a problem with moving into any areas deemed relevant but the mixture of what I do and showbiz activities probably has the tendency of engendering skepticism especially for those new to this website. And that's where I find it inconvenient - and yet I can't deviate from the process of letting the clues and coherence take me wherever they choose... and so here we are. Besides, a coded message still needs a medium and to be transmitted widely the medium has to be far-reaching, which makes movies, TV programs, celebrities, and things like that in pop culture an ideal medium. We'll see more examples of this later on. But I digress...

An important fact that should not be missed here is that the shooting incident in Columbus did foreshadow the upcoming 'great flood' that was to come 'three days' before the crossing of the Galactic Meridian this time by Venus itself. The timing was deciphered here beforehand as you know, and the location (Sumatra) would also later be found to have been pinpointed through the Columbus event's geodetic code. As for the nature of the event, it was also abundantly foreshadowed, through Columbus and many other 'rituals' that came before that.

Here are quotes from my Dec 22 post to show how I used the 'Damageplan'/'Pantera' incident on Dec 8 to anticipate a big event later that same month around the time of Venus' GM crossing:

And the name 'Damageplan' seemingly hints at the event's omen-type nature. That is to say that in the 'Oz ritual' may be found coded information concerning what's being planned for the near future... and it is certainly suggested to be 'explosive'.

At this point I'm looking at December as one of the potential windows... [...]

Judging from the Sun's meridian crossing giving us the Columbus event and such, the window around Dec 28/29 is likely to produce at least some symbolically meaningful event consistent with the underlying themes we have going here, if not a bona fide high-impact event like the fall of a Babylon/Sun-king... a key event coming up soon to shake things up...

One thing that I failed to do between Dec 8 and 26 was to emphasize the 'great water' aspect of the underlying pattern, injected repeatedly by the symbolism of Madrid ('lots/source of water'), the Hyades ('watery constellation'), Columbia (Columba the dove of Noah), Ohio ('great water'), the galaxy/Milky Way (the heavenly river/flood), pregnancy/birth (breaking of the water), and... yes, the Athens Olympics.

These pictures show that it was water that was literally at the center of it all during the opening ceremony - the climax of the 'super torch ritual'. Well, that and the notion of cosmic seeding as extensively discussed in Stargate Cipher 2012. These two intertwined themes are to become highly significant in the context of the 'great flood' event in a moment.

By 'cosmic seeding' what's primarily implied is 'Panspermia' - seeding by a heavenly 'extraterrestrial' rock. The beginning sequence of the Olympics' opening ceremony featured a fiery 'rock' coming from above, striking the lake occupying the center of the stadium, and ostensibly as a result of this appeared upon the lake fiery Olympic rings, as pictured below.

Rings of fire on water set alight by a heavenly rock... This was an uncanny foreshadowing of the Asian 'great flood' because:

  • Ring of Fire:

The region of Sumatra/Indonesia, where the huge tsunami-causing earthquake occurred on Dec. 26, make up the western extremity of what is known as the '(Pacific) Ring of Fire', defined as 'a zone of frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that encircles the basin of the Pacific Ocean'.

  • Heavenly rock:

While there is no actual evidence of a meteorite strike causing the tsunamis, this was the implicit storyline subtly promoted via certain international news stories appearing around that time:

Dec 19: Jakarta shaken by 'meteor blast': Reports of unexplained explosions caused alarm on Sunday morning in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta. Indonesia is on a heightened state of alert... However, Sunday's blasts may not have been made by man but by an extra-terrestrial phenomenon - a large meteor breaking up in the atmosphere.

Dec 24: Scientists study orbit of newly found asteroid: There's a 1-in-300 chance that a recently discovered asteroid... could hit Earth in 2029, a NASA scientist said Thursday...

Dec 29: Asteroid Earth impact in 2029 ruled out: Additional observations have ruled out the chance that a recently discovered asteroid, believed to be about 1,300 feet long, could hit Earth in 2029, NASA scientists said.

  • Benben Stone:

In an ancient Egyptian context, a heavenly rock that seeds the planet would be expressed by the Benben Stone, typically the capstone of the pyramid/obelisk. It is also a well-known Masonic symbol and can be seen on the back of the US dollar bill - the infamous 'All-Seeing Eye'. Traditionally it's closely associated with Sirius and through which its planetary analogue, Venus, both a 'goddess star' par excellence. The patron goddess of Athens named Athena is another alter ego of Sirius/Isis-Venus and has been equated with a rock that fell from the sky. In terms of biblical tradition, this goddess complex is personified by Mary Magdalene, the enigmatic companion of Jesus whose importance is rising rapidly today thanks largely to the success of the monster bestseller The Da Vinci Code.

Given the above context, you cannot dismiss as mere coincidence the fact that the state flag of Ohio features none other than the Benben/cap/All-Seeing Eye stone. And Ohio is the 'Buckeye State' which is a 'buck eye state' or a 'dollar eye state', as in the one dollar bill's All-Seeing Eye.


The outline of an 'M' surrounding the heavenly-seed stone solidifies the connection owing to the fact that the letter M is a well-known esoteric shorthand for Mary Magdalene.

It is of critical importance that an 'M' accompanies the cosmic rock as this is a slightly encrypted form of the ancient iconography involving the omphalos, or navel, stone which is an alter ego of the Benben Stone and said to mark the center of the world. Flanked by two doves, which is a symbolism alluded to by the name of Ohio's capital city Columbus, it becomes the standard glyph meaning 'to lay out parallels and meridians' and closely associated with the tradition of the Ark/Flood, as discussed before.

A cosmic stone surrounded by doves is conceptually the same as a cosmic stone surrounded by an 'M' in that the title 'Magdalene' has as one of its possible meanings 'the place of the dove', and the goddess and the dove are generally considered equatable.

As revealed previously, this omphalos glyph connection - thanks to its geodetic implication (i.e. the grid of the planet) - would then lead to the astounding demonstration of the elegant design we're dealing with there. The intersection of the meridian (longitude) running through Columbus Ohio extended into the other side of the globe, which is also geodetically called a 'Great Circle', and the latitudinal (= parallel) Great Circle that is necessarily always fixed at the equator and nowhere else, pinpoints a region just west of Sumatra, i.e. the epicenter of the 'great flood' earthquake!

The use of geodetic Great Circles was even hinted at by the symbolism of the Damageplan/Pantera shooting ('Pan-tera' => 'pan terra' => 'whole earth') and, as 'jim' has noted on the comment board recently, Dec 26 was exactly 360 days from the beginning of the year, making it a 'circle day' (i.e. '360' degrees).

Now, in the Book of Genesis the Great Flood is a direct consequence of the deeds of the so-called 'fallen angels' - identified in Genesis chapter 6 as 'sons of God' and somewhat more indirectly the 'Nephilim' (the 'giants') who were technically the offspring of the sons of God and the 'daughters of men', i.e. a hybrid race between 'heavenly beings' and man. In Genesis it's implied that this led to the corruption of man:

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. [Gen 6:5-7]

The 'Great Flood' then followed...

Note that those 'fallen angels' are collectively embodied by Lucifer who is popularly thought of as the fallen angel. And Lucifer, of course, is another name for Venus. At the Olympics, Venus as the goddess of love was clearly embodied by one of the main characters who gets pregnant - almost certainly as a stylized expression of the Transit of Venus from a couple of months earlier - at the comet-struck lake and gives birth to a 'messianic' child ('Holy Grail') signified by a giant DNA projection.

As discussed in Stargate Cipher 2012: Part 2 and elsewhere (as early back as 2001), the Nephilim or the 'men of renown' were actually 'the people of the shem' - 'shem' essentially denoting a 'heavenly shining fire-stone'. Yes - a heavenly rock. Given the 'seeding' aspect of the cosmic stone theme, it is only natural that the biblical tale of the 'fallen angels' primarily has to do with their sexual 'misbehavior' on this planet. These are basically the same story told in different contexts.

So we see that the opening sequence in Athens featuring a heavenly rock striking the lake was basically a retelling of the story about the 'fallen angels' as famously written in Genesis 6. The pregnant woman, therefore, was the embodiment of the 'daughters of men' who gave birth to the hybrid 'giant' race of the Nephilim.

Based on this 'omen' it could easily be inferred that what was about to take place in real life was the continuation of the same story. And there was nothing unambiguous about what was next - the Great Flood to wipe out the 'corruption', the 'evil' seed; and that is exactly what we saw on December 26, '04...

I find it noteworthy that a lot of the regions hit hard by the 'great flood' are known for their active child trafficking and sexual exploitation underground culture (though the problem itself is global) - i.e. rather expressive of the deeds of the 'fallen angels'.

The relevance of Genesis was made even clearer, in fact, just days after the end of the Olympics when NASA's Genesis probe returning from the Sun crashed into the Utah desert after failing to open its parachute. This ritualistic event had the symbolic function of solidifying the conceptual link between the heavenly stone theme (reenacted by the falling space capsule representing a 'Sun Stone') and the Genesis story transmitted at the Olympics just prior to the event.

It is also instructive to see the juxtaposition of two versions of the Olympic stadium, one as seen at the beginning and the other at the end of the Games.

One superimposed over the other, we'd get a spiral/concentric circles in a body of water. That brings to mind the typical depiction of earthquake shockwaves spreading out from the epicenter...

This will have interesting implications shortly. But let me add a comment here, that even the causeway aligned with the Athens spiral's center, already interpreted as signifying the Galactic Equator/Meridian in SGC2012: Part 2, is applicable to the Asian quake/tsunami whose epicenter marked by Sumatra straddled the earth's equator.

athens-code-94.jpg (90633 bytes)

'Sumatra' spelt backwards, by the way, is 'Artamus' which as one poster noted on the comment board is very close to 'Artemis', the Greek Moon goddess. As it happens not only was the Moon full on Dec 26, at the moment of the super quake it was right at the Galactic Equator (i.e. crossing the centerline of the celestial river/flood) and grazing the antipodal point of the Galactic Center, i.e. the (anti-) center of the Milky Way spiral.

The full Moon's location here also corresponds to the Sun's summer-solstice position (currently the intersection of the ecliptic, the green line in the illustration, and the Galactic Equator). In ancient Egyptian tradition the Milky Way was the heavenly form of the Nile river which flooded and revitalized the Egyptian 'black land' annually around the time of the summer solstice (signaled by the heliacal rising of Sirius). Generally speaking, to the ancient Egyptians the summer solstice would have meant 'the time of the flood'. The remarkable implication here is self-explanatory.

To sort of drive home the point, the multifaceted celestial 'signs' even included Comet Machholz, a bona fide 'heavenly stone', which was crescendoing toward peak brightness at the time - making it a 'heavenly torch' - by having its orbital path plotted in the sky pass precisely through the summer-solstice point at the moment of the Sumatra quake...

Comet Machholz then, moving northward, went on to skim by the famous Pleiades star cluster, highlighting it with its bright tail around January 7, right at the time of its closest approach to Earth (Jan 5/6).

It cannot be ignored here that January 6/7 marks Orthodox Christmas, thus a calendrically shifted day of the Asian 'great flood' (Dec 25/26). Indeed, this coincidence becomes even more meaningful when added that the Pleiades have traditionally been seen as a flame, seven doves, a form of Athena, and most definitely associated with the traditions of the Flood.

Perhaps more important is the Pleiades being the 'Seven Sisters' - or seven daughters - of the Titan Atlas who are also called the 'Atlantides' or, as Greek historian Hellanicus of Lesbos called them, Atlantis. Through Plato's writings (the Timaeus and Critias), 'Atlantis' would of course refer to a legendary antediluvian world of which Atlas was the first ruler:

Atlantis was a legendary ancient culture and island, whose existence and location have never been confirmed. The first mentions we have are from the classical Greek philosopher Plato, who said that it was destroyed by a natural disaster (possibly an earthquake or tsunami) about 9,000 years before his own time.

It is indeed not uncommon for the destruction of Atlantis to be equated with the Great Flood such as one described in Genesis, and it is quite often speculated to have been caused by a heavenly rock hitting the planet. What really gets our attention, however, is that one of the many proposed locations of Atlantis - namely by Prof. Arysio Nunes dos Santos, Ph. D. - happens to be Indonesia, of which Sumatra is the largest island landmass!

[map borrowed from here]

In this light we find it significant that the name 'Sumatra' denotes the 'isle of gold' just as traditions relating to Atlantis have tended to treat the mythical place as a land of gold.

What's more, the island of Atlantis is popularly thought of as being divided into seven concentric circles... which relate back to the Athens' spiral and the earthquake-shockwave depiction.

... As well as the platform for Bush's speech at the Republican National Convention just days after the end of the Olympics which I have already identified as a symbolic continuation of the same 'super torch ritual' (see SGC2012: Part 2):

... As well as the Milky Way galaxy and the unprecedented four major hurricanes that struck Florida around the time of the Olympics (the first of which, Charley, making landfall on the opening day of the Games):

... And then there was the enigmatic giant sculpture in the form of a white face prominently featured at the opening ceremony...

I've already talked extensively about how it correlates with the so-called 'Face on Mars' in SGC2012, but officially it was supposed to represent a sculpture from the ancient Cycladic civilization which derives its name from the Greek term 'cyclos' meaning 'circle'. We learn that the 'name was originally used to indicate those islands that formed a rough circle around the sacred island of Delos'. Yes, shades of Atlantis...

Even the idea of concentric circles or an epicenter was cleverly incorporated here through the accompanying spear-throwing red centaur which, as first discussed in SGC2012: Part 2, was almost certainly designed as an allusion to Sagittarius and the Galactic Center...

Here is what I wrote:

...the 'Martian' face emerged after the centaur threw a spear into the lake. The centaur, while already compared to the Great Sphinx, inevitably reminds us of the constellation Sagittarius known as 'the Archer' and traditionally perceived as a centaur with a bow and arrow.

The following passage from Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning (Richard Allen, p.354) all but confirms the connection:

An inscription, on a fragment of a planisphere, transcribed by Sayce as Utucagaba, the Light of the White Face, and by Pinches as Udgudua, the Flowing (?) Day, or the Smiting Sun Face, is supposed to be an allusion to this constellation (Sagittarius). [emphasis added]

So the Athenean Face was the 'White Face' or 'Smiting Sun Face' and the centaur the Sagittarius constellation. The significance being that the Galactic Center is located in Sagittarius. Not only that, in its traditional depiction Sagittarius aims its arrow closely at the Galactic Center!

Now I want the reader to go through the following visual collage and get a good sense of the basic flow or structure of the 'hidden' story transmitted at the Olympics:

Row 1: Heavenly stone/seeding theme: Genesis, Benben, omphalos/navel stone
Row 2: Lake and whirlpool
Row 3/4: Shooting arrow through heart/navel of whirlpool

I haven't discussed the following up to this point because it involves the Time River Theory (TRT) of mine and I generally try to avoid mixing Etemenanki discussions and the TRT or the book unless clearly warranted - largely because I treat the TRT as being on a different level, something much more substantial compared to the intentionally speculative nature of the 'Etemenanki' side of my work. And also because seeing reflections of the TRT in the 'rituals' can be considered more of a personal thing or worse a grandiose delusion. But here, I can't help but think it's appropriate to mention it and here is why...

First of all, when I saw the big lake in the Olympic stadium on Aug 13, my initial thought was that it reminded me of Lake Tana in Ethiopia, the source of the Blue Nile, a tributary most responsible for the Nile's annual inundation, which as those who have read The Time Rivers should know is one of the central and most symbolically heavy components of the Time River scheme. It was already no secret - to Etemenanki anyway - that the predominant underlying theme or primer had to do with Venus and through which the Mayan calendar and such. So the combination of the lake and Venus the goddess of love inevitably brought to my mind Lake Tana which is a heart-shaped lake - the heart being a symbol of love. Indeed, in the TRT Lake Tana is made to interact with Venus and Sirius, the goddess-stars. Not only that, Sirius is inseparable in ancient Egyptian tradition from the Nile inundation thus also from its ultimate source Lake Tana; and because Sirius is known as the 'Arrow Star' and Tana is a heart-shaped lake, there emerges a notion of 'shooting an arrow through the heart' which is of course expressive of love (= Venus).

The point is this. Through Lake Tana, the combined notions of a lake, Venus-Sirius, and 'an arrow through the heart' become entangled with the idea of a flood. Through the symbolism of the arrow-shooting centaur, Cupid, and such displayed over the lake, therefore, we were in effect given a 'warning' of a coming deluge just as the heliacal rising of Sirius did for ancient Egyptians.

Now we realize that the 'warning' was not too subtle either because all the other key visual elements surrounding the Olympic lake greatly amplify the message. The biggest clue - which I missed initially - was the concept of a watery whirlpool that the opening and closing ceremonies together invoked. It changes the notion of 'an arrow through the heart' into 'an arrow through the center of the whirlpool', as in Sagittarius aiming its arrow at the center of the galactic whirlpool (Milky Way). Even without the TRT, this is a theme that is traditionally associated with the Flood!

Read the following excerpt from The Time Rivers (pp.92-3) and you'll see that it reads like a 'Guidebook to Symbolism of Athens Olympics' (emphasis added, endnotes omitted):

...according to A Dictionary of Symbols, the arrow’s phallic significance is strong especially:

…when it is shown in emblems balanced against the symbol of the ‘mystic Centre’, feminine in character, such as the heart. The heart pierced with an arrow is a symbol of ‘Conjunction’.

[...] Related to this are the mythical tales about a maiden shooting her arrow into the ‘navel of the waters, which was a vast whirlpool’, in order to win fire. [...]

Indeed, the ‘navel of the waters’ is an excellent description of Lake Tana. The navel, or the omphalos, is a universal symbol for the center of the world, and the notion of ‘center’ is inseparable from the heart, thus also from [heart-shaped] Lake Tana. And this navel-Tana equation is strongly supported by the mythological idea that ‘the opening of the navel brings the deluge’. Lake Tana, as we know, is essentially the source of the Nile flood.

The ‘navel’ is additionally related to the sacred relic called the omphalos stone, or the ‘foundation stone’, found in various parts of the world, supposedly marking the ‘navel of the world’ (i.e. the geodetic center). [T]he famous omphalos stone at Delphi (Greece) was identified with the stone that Saturn is said to have disgorged after he swallowed it thinking it was Zeus [= Jupiter]; indeed, the name ‘omphalos’ is said to derive from Zeus’ umbilical cord. [...]

The omphalos, furthermore, is identifiable with the Benben Stone of ancient Egypt, the archetypal capstone of the pyramid.[...]

The Benben Stone is important in that it correlates with many of the ongoing themes such as fire, the Morning Star, and sexuality. For instance, the term benben (or ben, benn, etc.) has decidedly sexual connotations as it can mean ‘to copulate’, ‘phallus’, etc. And the Benben Stone was identified with the phoenix, or the bennu-bird, which was: 1) a ‘fire-bird’ that had the ‘Isle of Fire’ as its home; 2) equated with the ‘morning star’; and 3) like Eve, considered to be the bringer of Hikê, the essence of life.

At this point, then, we are able to state with a high degree of certainty that the ‘gifts’ given to mankind in the Silver-Taurus Age had three elements: secret knowledge, sexuality/seed, and life (the last two may be combined).

I'm not saying that the grand Athens ceremonies, or the designers, were consciously 'aware' of The Time Rivers (though my ego, if unchecked, would welcome that idea), but that both at least stem from the same mysterious, shall we say 'Atlantean', 'blueprint' that is now beginning to resurface around and within us in this reality of ours. And this awareness of the 'blueprint' - which might be called the 'Holy Grail' - is the fundamental protocol underlying the intangible language through which 'Enki' quietly communicates his knowledge about the coming Great Flood... A warning given to Ziusudra/Utnapishtim/Noah.

As should be increasingly obvious to you at this point, such a warning was transmitted before the modern 'Great Flood' last December. Looking back, it could perhaps be said that I was going for the 'Noah' role. Now don't get me wrong, the point is that anyone can strive to become a 'Noah' by trying to understand such 'secret communication' using both reason and intuition.

Despite all my efforts, however, my decoding prior to Dec 26 didn't go far enough in time to literally predict the precise nature of the looming event - though I would say that I had established most of the necessary contexts in place for it, thus allowing me to declare in Stargate Cipher 2012 that we are living the story of Eden and the Flood 'right now'.

In any case, let's shift our focus back to the Galactic Center, the region pinpointed by the arrow of Sagittarius, approximately the Sun's winter-solstice position. Notice that this was also where there was the fleeting gathering of the Sun, Venus, and Mercury (as well as Pluto), 180 degrees away from the summer-solstice point/alignment that was being highlighted by the full Moon and Comet Machholz as we have seen.

It was during the traditional 'Christmas period' of late December through early January that Venus and Mercury together crossed the celestial river or the Milky Way, and I would compare this to one particular scene coming early in the opening ceremony in Athens where the Venus-Mary figure was having fun in the water (she got pregnant there) while hovering over her the whole time was an winged angelic being (ostensibly Cupid) supervising her actions, whom I would identify with Mercury the Messenger ('angel' means 'messenger'). Venus and Mercury together in/over water - just like the celestial configuration during the Christmas season...

Come to think of it, the giant DNA to which this Venus-Mary figure would gives birth was very much comparable to a 'stairway to heaven' not unlike the Milky Way - a heavenly ladder.

We would now find it only fitting that another alter ego of the heavenly ladder known as 'Jacob's ladder', found in Genesis, is associated with a (heavenly) stone and a stargate ('gate of heaven') - the latter corresponding to the inter-dimensional objects known as 'black holes' that occupy the center of the Milky Way galaxy.

Here is the relevant portion from the Book of Genesis:

Jacob left Beersheba, and went toward Haran. And he came to a certain place, and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! [...] Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the LORD is in this place; and I did not know it." And he was afraid, and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven." And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. [...] And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee. [Gen 28:10-22]

So, the Milky Way is Jacob's ladder in Genesis which in turn is a 'gate of heaven' marked by a heavenly stone... a 'Genesis stone'. And a Genesis 'stone' fallen from heaven is exactly what we witnessed several days after the end of the Olympics in early September - the crash of NASA's Genesis capsule returning from the Sun.

Heavily interacting with this symbolism was the inexplicable string of hurricanes hitting Florida the 'Sunshine State'. Notice the Sun connection; the visual similarity between the Milky Way/galaxy and hurricanes is unmistakable; and the first one to hit the Sunshine State was Hurricane Charley on August 13, the day when the DNA 'ladder to heaven' was being erected in Athens at the opening ceremony. This was also exactly when Venus was crossing the Milky Way (around the Sun's summer-solstice position) - early-to-mid August '04 - which was to be repeated on the opposite side of the Milky Way (the winter-solstice area) around the time of Christmas... the time of the modern Great Flood.

The Florida hurricanes also encoded something more, as I wrote in SGC2012:

...the general path taken by Charley to get to Florida (and by the subsequent hurricanes) was from the direction of Cuba (or the West Indies). This brings to mind one particular scene from Athens, coming near the beginning of the show (see picture right).

Remember the Elian Gonzales saga from '99-'00? Here is what 'garfield' in the Etemenanki forum astutely pointed out:

Friday, August 13th was the 78th BIRTHDAY of Fidel Castro, Cuba's enduring leader. It was also the day a super hurricane thrashed Cuba on its way to Florida. Hurricane Charlie [sic] and tropical storm Bonnie were the names of these twin storms that menaced the south.

Bonnie and Charley have allusions to the legendary Scottish prince, Bonnie Prince Charles Edward and his escape on a boat to the Isle of Skye, immortalized in the Skye Boat Song...

This is the same Florida-Cuban regional waters where a few years back, the Cuban boy Elian Gonzales fled with his mother on a boat to Florida but ended up shipwrecked. All these occurred before the 2000 election controversy. [link]

The same Elian which Goro had associated with Moses, the baby 'saved from water' or 'drawn out' by the princess from the reeds. The same Moses associated with the Ark of the Covenant and its parallel Noah's Ark and the story of the Flood. Water-Ark-Argo-Mars. Standard fare for site regulars by now.

[The name] Elian has connections [via the presumed variants 'Eliane' and 'Elaine'] also with the Greeks' Helen, and the Sun Gods Helios and Apollo...

There is also the infant Greek Perseus and his mother Danae, cast into the sea in a wooden chest (ark) and saved by fishermen, as was Elian.

All these express the same theme enacted in the Olympic ceremonies where a boy sailed on a paper boat...

The name 'Cuba' is said to come from cubanacan meaning 'center place' and the paper boat scene was immediately followed by the centaur's appearance. Is there a center/centaur pun intended here?

So... we have a stylized Ark/Flood story in juxtaposition with hurricanes, accompanied by an allusion to a center/epicenter, and immediately followed by the Sagittarius-centaur that, through a gigantic Face associated with the ancient Cycladic civilization evoking a circular pattern, seemingly did everything it could to stir up the idea of pinpointing the center of the Milky Way galaxy with its arrow... in connection with the tale of Atlantis.

Well, everything seems to fit nicely together. Very elegant - especially considering that 1) the general region around Cuba is the original part of the New World 'discovered' by Columbus whose name derives from Columba, Noah's dove, and 2) Cuba is yet another proposed site of Plato's Atlantis! It was only few years ago in 2000 that Andrew Collins pushed this theory hard in his well-researched book Gateway to Atlantis and since then there has been a promising discovery off the west coast of Cuba to give more weight to this theory.

Location of Cuba

And as shown below, Cuba's national flag bears an unmistakable resemblance to the flag of Ohio - both featuring the omphalos/Benben stone symbolism, three horizontal color stripes and such:

Flag of Ohio

Flag of Cuba

We find more reason to suspect Cuba's relevance in all this as we take a look at another memorable scene from the opening show coming shortly after the Face/centaur sequence that featured a man and a cubic box  - i.e. Cuba conceptually rendered as a 'Cube'.

That the modern 'Great Flood' came on on Dec 26 - known as 'Boxing Day' - should also figure here, along with the fact that, get this, the Ark of Utnapishtim (= Noah) in the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh is said to have been cube-shaped and indeed the Hebrew term for the Ark, tebah, means 'box'. The Boxing-Day flood thus in effect came about on an 'Ark day', which cannot be more appropriate and... 'ritualistic'.

Boxing Day is also related to the tradition of giving boxes of gifts to servants; it is then a form of 'gift day'. In terms of standard Christmas tradition the idea of gift-giving is primarily expressed through the Three Magi (or 'Wise Men') who come to honor baby Jesus - or to them the 'king of the Jews' - with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. The proto-Christmas feast of Epiphany on Jan 6 is in honor of these Magi and we recall it was exactly at that time this year that Comet Machholz made its closest approach to Earth and highlighted the Pleiades (inseparable from the Flood/Atlantis).

Interestingly enough, it was also on Jan 6 that Electoral College votes were certified and Bush officially won the presidential election. But not without controversy. Unlike 2000, we saw one brave senator objecting to the result, citing voting irregularities in... (well, where else?) Ohio, which was almost historic; and the senator was named... Boxer. (By the way, in the sport of 'boxing', the 'boxers' fight in a ring, i.e. a circle.)

And I don't see it as mere coincidence that the longitude, or the meridional Great Circle, of Columbus Ohio on this side of the globe runs right through the island of Cuba, and that the (latitudinal) Tropic of Cancer (a 'small circle') that denotes the Sun's summer-solstice position as reflected on the surface of the earth happens to graze Cuba's northern edge.

You may recall that it was the solar summer-solstice point that the full Moon and the plotted path of Comet Machholz highlighted for us at the time of the Sumatra quake, an event occurring near the winter solstice which is geometrically 180 degrees away, just as Cuba and Sumatra are situated on the opposite sides of the globe.

This idea of 180-degrees separation reminds me of one legend, saying that the two doves/eagles perched on the omphalos stone represent the birds Zeus sent forth simultaneously from two sides (east and west) so that they would meet at the center of the world, the point subsequently marked by the omphalos stone. Given that our world, our planet, is really spherical and thus has no eastern or western edge whence to release the birds inward, a realistic interpretation would have the birds flying outward in opposite directions and then meeting at the other side of the globe 180 degrees away from the origination point. Their combined flying path would be analogous to a geodetic Great Circle.

Now I need to add a comment here that there is definitely a link between the 'Ark' and the geodetic 'arcs' drawn upon the planet (prominently expressed by a Great Circle). And by 'Ark' I refer to both the Ark of Noah and Moses' Ark of the Covenant, which usually are not thought connected in anyway despite the generous terminological clue. For one, Moses as an infant was famously 'saved from water' just as was Noah. It is also instructive to remember, or learn, that the Ark of the Covenant's primary purpose was to hold the stone tablets bearing the Ten Commandments, and those stones are theorized by some scholars to have been meteorites... i.e. heavenly stones. As well, much like the omphalos stones, the Ark of the Covenant was said to allow direct communication with God/the gods.

Indeed, take a look at the following depictions - the Ark of the Covenant and the omphalos stone side by side...

Almost certainly you're looking at two versions of the same iconography. (This is just the tip of the iceberg.) It's surprising that this is not widely recognized. If you think the biblical stories - including those concerning Jesus - are not heavily coded texts, you're sadly mistaken. The literal tales readily apparent on the surface are merely 'for kids', so to speak. Literalness is one-dimensional and wisdom is never one-dimensional.

Here are some more clues supportive of the Ark-omphalos/stone connection:

  • Thebes, an Ark-related Egyptian city, may have derived its name from thibbun meaning 'navel' (omphalos)

  • Delphi, one of the claimed landing sites of Deukalion's ark, was considered the 'navel of the world' (the omphalos), and this place held the famous omphalos stone that Saturn is said to have disgorged

  • The name of Delphi's patron sun-god, Apollo, supposedly means 'the stone'

  • In front of the Ark in the Temple's Holy of Holies was the 'foundation stone of the world'

And in Greek myth is found a direct connection between the Ark/deluge, heavenly stones, and Genesis seeding, as I happened to point out in The Time Rivers (pp.180-1, emphasis added):

Stones even figure prominently in the Greek version of the Great Flood story, as we are told that:

[After the deluge] Themis [Zeus’s wife] appeared in person, saying: ‘Shroud your heads, and throw the bones of your mother behind you!’ Since Deucalion and Pyrrha [Deucalion’s wife] had different mothers, both now deceased, they decided that the Titaness meant Mother Earth, whose bones were the rocks lying on the river bank. Therefore, stooping with shrouded heads, they picked up rocks and threw them over their shoulders; these became either men or women, according as Deucalion or Pyrrha had handled them. Thus mankind was renewed, and ever since a ‘people’ (laos) and ‘a stone’ (laas) have been much the same word in many languages. [Robert Graves, The Greek Myths, 38.d.]

Obviously, then, stones are an integral part of the ‘ark complex’. But why is this? Is there a particular reason why such significance should be accorded to stones? As we will see, the indications are that it has much to do with the sacred stones being symbolic of the heaven-earth unification...

First, the stones’ connection to heaven arises from their meteoric nature: the Benben Stone, the navel stone, and such are often said to be meteorites. Similarly, according to some scholars the Ark’s stone tablets were pieces of a meteorite (and the Ark itself has been associated with ‘celestial fire’).

The meteoric nature of the ark-stone is also strongly suggested by the Holy Grail. Like the two Arks (of Moses and Noah), the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant have so much in common that they are often viewed as one and the same. And it happens that the Holy Grail was sometimes described as a stone – e.g., in one of the most influential literary works on the relic, Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach (c. 1200 AD), the Grail is called lapsit exillis, usually interpreted to mean ‘stone from heaven’ (lapis ex caelis) or ‘it fell from heaven’ (lapsit ex caelis).

Because we've touched on the Time River Theory, let me add here that according to various traditions researched and presented in The Sign and the Seal by Graham Hancock, the Ark of the Covenant was taken to Ethiopia - the land of Lake Tana - and the relic at one time was kept on an island in Lake Tana itself for about 800 years! (So you can see why the TRT is increasingly becoming relevant... and it's just a little taste of its smoldering force.)

The Ark's introduction into the 'super torch ritual' matrix also adds a new dimension thanks to the relic's claimed capability to function as a power generator of some kind:

Speculations that the Ark of the Covenant may have operated as an electrical capacitor have been held by some, including, in the 1900s, electrician Nikola Tesla. Louis Ginzberg's "Legends of the Jews" has ancient oral traditions referring to "sparks" from the cherubim.

The design of the ark may have allowed it to store electric charge, and thus could facilitate an electric discharge between the cherubs. The theory suggests that it resembles a capacitor in its construction. The biblical accounts of individuals sudden deaths from touching the Ark could correspond to death by a lethal high voltage charge. "Fiery jets" occasionally burned and destroyed close objects. Other biblical accounts could correspond with exposure to some high frequency electromagnetic fields. Jewish legend has occasional records of a "cloud" between the cherubim. The Ark was considered dangerous at these times and Moses would not approach it. [source]

This brings to mind one of the prominent themes in Stargate Cipher 2012, that there is a strong indication of 'ultra technology' being unleashed for the grand 'rituals' like Tesla's 'death ray' or HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) which are electromagnetic devices theoretically capable of affecting the weather, human behavior, and such.

My position has been that it's not unreasonable to ponder the possibility of such weather manipulation. If not literally so, then at least it appeared to be the implied 'storyline', like that of a meteor strike surrounding the Sumatra quake/tsunami.

It is even possible that the space-age 'dove' known as the space shuttle Columbia was brought down by HAARP. This disaster witnessed on Feb 1, 2003 has been a major component of the 'super torch ritual' and was amplified exactly one year later at the 2004 Super Bowl in the 'space city' Houston that gave us the symbolically meaningful 'nipplegate' and such. Of course, it seems overly conspiratorial to implicate HAARP in the demise of the shuttle - and this too may well turn out to be just an 'implied storyline' - but there are those who have done some serious independent investigation and have come more or less to this conclusion. On the Columbia's Sacrifice website, for example, are presented the following observations:

The Columbia very likely encountered something that destroyed most of its avionics equipment and guidance and flight programs at 13:47:32 during reentry, (This was the end of the crew cabin video and virtually all voice communications with Mission Control).

A comprehensive overview of scientific documents on the subject of recreating the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) effect for the purpose of missile defense as well as the actual United States Patent, (No. 5,038,664), for the transmission system used at the HAARP research facility located in Alaska and operated by the Navy and Air Force shows that it is capable of producing a field of high speed relativistic particles in the upper atmosphere exactly where the Columbia would pass through during reentry.

A log kept by researcher Marshall Smith indicates that the HAARP transmitter was operating in "Missile Defense Mode", for 90 minutes before Columbia passed through its field of influence and for 90 minutes after, (This information is not verifiable and no one else is known to monitor HAARP transmissions).

In the 'Conclusions From Engineering Analysis' section the same author/researcher states this regarding the EMP scenario:

Extensive research has led to only two existing possibilities for this scenario. 1.) An Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) from a nuclear blast near the Columbia during reentry. This would certainly do it if the missile carrying the warhead were launched at exactly the correct time to intersect the Columbia's flight path. This is not impossible, however, according to the accounts written about high altitude nuclear blasts that occurred in the 1960's and 1970's the effects of such an event would have been visible for many miles. There were no such reports of anomalous activity in the sky at that time which would have matched the effects of a high altitude nuclear blast. 2.) The Columbia passed through a region of high speed beta particles intended to mimic the effects of an EMP. All of the academic papers written on the subject state that it is possible to produce such an effect for the purposes of ballistic missile defense. It is known that especially during the Cold War several countries attempted to create such a system to protect them from ICBM attack. The relative success of these systems is unknown and the information can be assumed to be held secret.

At this point I'm reminded of the Damageplan symbolism...

I received the following information from 'Barbara' who she told me personally knew the Damageplan/Pantera guys: made a comment about the damageplan cd cover [...] Vinnie Paul [the band's drummer] stated in an interview that the name Damageplan came from the atomic bomb. He said when they made the atomic bomb they had a plan... a damage plan.

Add to this the CD title 'New Found Power' and we seem to have an allusion (coincidental or not) to some new, powerful, and probably electromagnetic (EMP) related weapon/technology - comparable to nuclear power - that may have been used in the 'rituals', including the Sumatra earthquake.

(By the way, let me make clear that I seriously doubt the Damageplan guys themselves or any other 'actors on the stage' had/have any conscious awareness of any of this symbolism stuff. We're dealing with something much more mysterious and probably quite 'metaphysical'.)

Am I actually suggesting that the catastrophe was man-made? Well, not necessarily but given the surrounding symbolic contexts I'd have to consider it an intriguing - as well as disturbing - possibility. At least there seems to be a design in place prompting us to think about it. After all the discussions about the numerous and sometimes frighteningly precise 'omens' preceding the event, is it really that farfetched to imagine some form of conscious (or should I say sub/unconscious) plan or influence working behind the scenes carefully facilitating the ritualistic events? No - it would be quite natural. But no need to dwell on that issue.

The emerging 'atomic bomb' theme also brings our attention to the #1 selling CD at the time of the Columbus/Damageplan shooting, which was U2's How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb from which Vertigo was the heavily promoted single.

If I remember correctly soon after the Damageplan event 'jim' in the forum and email started mentioning a film called Vertigo, which made me curious about U2's Vertigo. Then I saw its music video - and that really got my attention... It just could not emphasize the concentric-circle - or target - symbol more.

You can watch the video at the following links and I encourage you to do so:

After all the discussions about concentric circles or the spiral/whirlpool shape... can we ignore this in-your-face reappearance in U2's art designs? Especially since we have, aside from the timing of the CD and its title, the following:

  • The term 'vertigo' has to do with dizzily whirling motion and balance disorder/instability, thus relatable to earthquakes

  • In the Vertigo video the ground begins to shake wildly around and under the performing band

  • 'U-2' was the designation of two German submarines (as well as a Lockheed spy plane) - relatable to the submarine Sumatra earthquake

  • Update: 'jim' has noted that it was the U-2 spy planes flying over Cuba and taking pictures of new missile sites there that started the intense 'Cuban missile crisis', a very dangerous 'confrontation between the Soviet Union and the United States over the Soviet deployment of nuclear missiles in Cuba'.

  • U2 performed on a heart-shaped stage during the 2002 Super Bowl halftime show soon after 9/11

  • U2 is notable for being an Irish band and 'Ireland' can mean 'land of peace', relatable to the dove the symbol of peace and 9/11 taking place on the UN-sanctioned International 'peace day'; Ireland also figures in Grail tradition and the Greeks called Ireland 'Ogygia' which is one of the names applicable to Atlantis

  • Vertigo's lyrics features a lot of Spanish words for some reason - Cuba (possible 'Atlantis') is a Spanish-speaking nation

  • The ominous black smokes shown in the Vertigo video may be associated with the infamous 'black wind of death' mentioned in a letter claimed to have been sent out by a group supposedly responsible for the 3/11 Madrid train bombings in... Spain

With regard to the last point, here is an excerpt from a CBC news report:

MADRID - A London-based Arabic newspaper says an al-Qaeda-linked group has claimed responsibility for the series of deadly bombs that ripped across a train line in Madrid...

The newspaper Al-Quds al-Arabi said it received a five-page e-mail from the Brigade of Abu Hafs al-Masri claiming its "death squad" had penetrated "one of the pillars of the crusade alliance, Spain." [...]

"This is part of settling old accounts with Spain, the crusader, and America's ally in its war against Islam," the unverified claim said.

The statement also warned that an attack would soon be launched against the United States.

"We announce the good news for the Muslims in the world that the strike of the black wind of death, the expected strike against America, is now at its final stage – 90 per cent ready – and it is coming soon, by God's will," the claim said. 

There is also this view:

In Bin Laden's... videotape he said a “black wind” was about to blow over the enemies of Islam (implying primarily the U.S.). In Islam, a black wind (huayra yana) is associated with hell (Quran 56:41-46) and with the destruction of Islam's enemies ("And on the day of resurrection you shall see those who lied against Allah; their faces shall be blackened.” Quran 39:60)." The black wind is also predicted to blow at the time the Imam Mahdi arises to defeat the unbelievers (convert them by the sword).

My interpretation of the 'black wind' at least at this point is that we're probably looking at a Madrid or 9/11-type event against the US in the near future - likely an 'inside job' designed to incite the nation again into supporting a military attack against some pre-selected Islamic nation... namely Iran. In other words, I think the 'omen' or 'warning' from 'Enki' is still active even after the 'Great Flood', still subtly pointing out for us the next likely high-impact event, primarily through, as far as I can tell, the 'pop culture' medium of U2.

To me, the title of the CD 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb' seemed to project a somewhat different context than the related 'Damageplan' symbolism. First of all, it coherently interacts with the dove/peace/Ireland theme in that, for instance, the famous peace symbol from the 70s was conceived as 'a combination of the semaphore signals for the letters "N" and "D", standing for Nuclear Disarmament'.

Secondly, as far as the Bush administration is concerned, and particularly the nutty neoconservative faction, Iran is at the top of their 'most wanted' list as a 'rogue nation' that needs to be nuclear-free. Team Bush definitely wants to dismantle Iran's nuclear program - an issue that recently made headlines thanks to Seymour Hersh's reporting in his New Yorker article 'Coming Wars' (Jan 17). And of course it was exactly one year after the catastrophic Iran earthquake that obliterated the city 'Bam' that the Sumatra quake/flood took place... on Boxing Day or 'gift day', thus even appropriately relating to the gift-bearing Three Magi of Christmas/Epiphany who were most likely from Persia, today's Iran.

Even the names 'Iran' and 'Eire' (the Irish name of Ireland) are said to derive from the same root, 'aryo' (as in 'Aryan'), making it even more fitting for the Irish band U2 to (unwittingly/unconsciously) broadcast the 'warning' to the world, if that is indeed what's happened. Worth noting as well is the 'Aryan race' theology promoted by Nazi Germany as the occult-driven SS organization consider it a 'master race' from Atlantis (an idea based on the mystical philosophy of Helena Blavatsky and others).

While the 'Atlantean' tales of the Garden of Eden, sons of God ('Watchers'), and the Nephilim are normally geographically associated with Mesopotamia (Sumer) or today's Iraq, we find that 'angelology' - traditions handed down to us through ancient texts like the Book of Enoch - can be traced back ultimately to Persia/Iran and to the tradition of the Magi, a priestly order in Media (northern Iran).

So what can I say... but 'watch Iran'. Or perhaps more accurately, 'watch Team Bush/neoconservatives go after Iran'. The most worrisome part of the 'omen' has to be the 'black wind' symbolism, as that may well be alluding to 'another' Reichstag Fire-type event. Indeed, given the current national psychological climate (Americans are already very tired of the Iraq war), it would probably take another 9/11 or something like that to 'shock & awe' the country into supporting military strikes against Iran which would by then be portrayed as the embodiment of 'the Muslims who attacked us'. So... that's becoming an increasingly plausible scenario among others.

And the PNAC-driven neocon agenda apparently still driving the Bush administration cannot be separated from Israel thanks largely to the great power wielded by Vice President Cheney, the 'Darth Vader' of the current US government. Incidentally, the heart of Israel, Jerusalem, can mean 'foundation of peace' and similarly the name 'Solomon', who built the Temple to house the Ark of the Covenant, means 'peace'. This is something we should keep in mind along with the Jewish culture's close relationship with the olive tree - a well-known symbol of peace.

It also happens that the olive tree is closely associated with Athena and accordingly we saw it highlighted during the Olympic opening ceremony in Athens...

It was also an olive branch that the dove brought back to Noah to signal the end of the Great Flood. This being the period immediately following the modern 'Great Flood' right now, we'd have to consider the possibility that the foreshadowed 'black wind'/atomic/Iran event is to embody that olive branch of the dove/Columba.

There are some interesting time references in Genesis regarding the Flood that we can probably use for decoding the time code involved here... But for now we can expect the month of February to produce significant developments around the world that'll give us more clarity as to what that 'olive branch' presumably on its way would represent. It will be during February '05 that we'll see Mars passing through the '9/11' position which - not surprisingly at this point - closely marks the Galactic Center. Some of you might recall that it was when Mars' first return to this position after 9/11 in March 2003 that the US invasion of Iraq started...

And that'll then lead to the 'birth date' expected from the 'pregnancy' conceived through the Transit of Venus (the union of Venus and the Sun) as well as the 'passing of the torch' ritual involving Reagan and Schwarzenegger, around March 11, which is also the second of the 'Judgment' dates pinpointed by the 'Terminator time code' (the first being March 11, '04 answered by Madrid).

Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention the continuing relevance of the Pope situation. I have been quite consistent in my position from the beginning that the grand ritual sequence now underway has much to do with the exit of the current pope, John Paul II. It is one of the big events to which the 'ritual clock' is counting down, the way I see it. And the key symbolism here apparently involves the prophetic list of popes supposedly written down centuries ago by one St. Malachy which identifies John Paul II as 'De labore Solis' or 'of the labor/eclipse of the Sun' and the next pope as 'Gloria olivae' or 'Glory of the olive'. Yes... olive. So within the context we have going here, the potential implication is quite self-explanatory. The olive branch that is to be brought to us after the Flood may well be represented by the rise of the next pope.

Obviously I expect 2005 to be an eventful year that will keep pushing things to the extreme like rising water pushing against the dam. The water has to be released one way or another and it can be done orderly with minimal damage or we can just wait until the dam breaks. If we take the latter approach, we're in for yet another, more deadly 'Great Flood'. It's the collapse of the system, the illusion, the Maya, or the 'Matrix'. It is useful to view the Mayan calendar counting down to the end of the cycle on Dec 21, 2012 as a countdown to the 'moment of truth'... You're either with truth and or with corruption that needs to be wiped out before the rise of the next New World represented most prominently by Mars. The soon-to-be 'Old World' on the other hand would be most fittingly represented by America and thus it also prominently embodies the 'Matrix' that is about to  crash. It's deja vu all over again as the current situation is apparently designed as a repeat of the destruction of Atlantis, and as such it is also the story of the Great Flood. And the 'Ark' is ultimately within each of us - the courage and determination to choose the path of truth over the path of illusion. The Titanic is already sinking and it is time to choose, as should be made clearer in 2005.

Can we leave the 'Truman Show'? Do you want to?
