"Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of kings."--Horace
Erwin Schroedinger's cat is sitting in a well-closed black box, beside it is a vial with a poisonous gas in it. This vial is corked shut. Over the vial hangs a stone on a thread that leads through a hook diagonal to the bottom of the box.
The stone is heavy enough to destroy the bottle of glass which releases the deadly gas, to kill the cat.
Under the thread that the stone is hanging from, a lit candle is placed. The flame is high enough to take some time to burn the thread and after some time the stone falls down onto the vial, freeing the gas and killing the cat.
While the cat is in the box, unobserved, we can’t know whether the event has taken place or not and thus whether the cat is alive or dead.
According to Schroedinger the cat begins dying when the Black box is opened.
It is the uncertainty principle that comes into play when you frolic in the playground of conspiracy theory and tales of treachery. We are also in an era of uncertainty with the constant threat of terrorism, and an invisible fear that something horrible is about to happen. It is a surety that horrible things will happen, how horrible is a matter of opinion and until Pandora’s box is opened we must go on as if nothing is wrong.
However we can always speculate.
In the early hours of August 31st, 1997 Diana Princess of Wales was killed when her car hit the 13th, pillar in the Pont d’Alma tunnel in Paris. Her Lover Dodi Al Fayed and their driver Henri Paul also died in the crash. Dodi’s bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, survived.
As soon as the news hit the presses there were conspiracy theorists claiming that Diana was murdered. Still there were many more that determined that what had happened was some sort of secret societal ritual.
It could have been just a simple accident. No one is quite sure.
One thing that is sure is that It was a violent death that can be compared to the running mythologies about the deaths of Osirus, Adonis, Christ, Kennedy and others who in their lifetime represented values, patriotism and morality. It isn’t until much later do we find that their values and morality may not measure up to the hype.
Were they moral? Were they truly good and just leaders?
We read all the time about such characters, the hero, the fair and wholesome Princess all wiped out unexpectedly by the dragon, or the symbol of doom. There are many interpretations about these various representations that continue to cycle through history.
From Joseph Campbell, to Immanuel Velikovsky, there are countless resources and the archetypes provided in their various writings are somehow destroyed in order for a civilization or a collective to change their opinions about their own lives.
Many people today are overwhelmed by all of the things they have to think about. It becomes a comfortable exercise to emotionally invest in those things that appear to us every morning in the paper, or every night on the network news.
Are the stories true? Or are they just interpretations, pushing you towards a certain thought?
It is rare to find anyone who gives a damn about the eternal pagan psychodrama that plays out in places of power. Rarer still are people who are well versed in astrology or secret societies. When one speaks about it openly, those in the crowd find it necessary to burst out with derisive giggles.
The peer pressure then takes hold and soon the whole group is laughing out loud at the individual who has the ability to talk about something so peculiar. Most of these things of course are not new. A lot of things are forgotten. This does not mean that they are not relevant.
In Ed Wood’s strange movie about transvestitism, Glen or Glenda, Bela Lugosi is the "God" figure sitting on a throne that looks more like a thread bare chair from goodwill and utters a cryptic verse:
"Man's constant groping of things unknown, drawing from the endless reaches of time, brings to light many startling things. Startling because they seem new...sudden...but most are not new to the signs of the ages. A life...is begun! People...all going somewhere. All with their own thoughts, their own ideas. All with their own personalities. One is wrong because he does right...one is right because he does wrong. Pull the strings! Dance to that, which one is created for. A new day is begun. A new life is begun. A life...is ended."—Bela Lugosi from Ed Wood’s Glen or Glenda
Now you may feel that taking a quote from a Z-grade film may lessen my credibility, but I had the pleasure of meeting Delores Fuller, one of Ed Woods’ girlfriends and she told me that a lot of what Ed did in his films was cryptically try and tell his truth.
She tried to explain that Ed Wood felt that a lot of the shocking things that were presented in art work and in film were nothing new and that all things have been done before. Wars are fought, people die, Kings make wars, people follow, people die, people hate Kings, and they die.
"When you're one of the few to land on your feet
what do you do to make ends meet? Teach --make 'em mad, make 'em sad,
make 'em add two and two make 'em me, make 'em you, make 'em do what you want them to make 'em laugh, make 'em cry, make 'em lay down and die"
—"One of the Few" by Pink Floyd
We all dance for our "Gods" and when we lose faith in our Gods we devour them. We never learn that the best way to take the power from a God is not to worship it. If one wants a God to lose its power all that is needed is to ignore that God.
It is not necessary to kill it.
However throughout history the violent death of the divine king somehow changes us. In truth the sacrifice of the divine entity is an act of sorcery. It is there to remind us that "we have changed."
It is used as a method of mind control.
It seems to happen in a cycle. Each culture has its divine kings. They all fall in different ways and when they do, their followers exaggerate their qualities and soon they become more powerful dead than alive.
"What is history but a fable agreed upon"—Napoleon Bonaparte
If I could lay a claim to being a psychic I could easily predict that when Ronald Reagan dies the American people will be treated to a sickening tongue bath that will be prolonged for days. If it happens during the campaign it will be used as a tool for sympathy. It would be a tool to continue American nationalism. It would be heralded with the reverence and adulation of a Pharaoh.
If George W. Bush were to die in office there would be a more fervent effort to push the agenda for the open-ended war. He would in turn be one more scapegoat or convenient excuse to continue the blood covenant that was created prior to the attacks on New York and Washington D.C.
There are no weapons of mass destruction, Saddam Hussein is no longer a threat, so there would have to be a higher cause. The cause for the fallen hero that represents the morals, and values of his people. It will be the cause for the beloved son, in whom we have grown to support because of his committed effort to protecting the country from the evil dragon of terrorism.
Look back at John F. Kennedy and his vision of the moon landing. After his death the call went out to carry out the dream of space flight.
As the election approaches I have once again become acerbic because it has become obvious to me that the incumbent is no longer capable of being president. John Kerry is showing us the art of standing for nothing and saying nothing because many people in the country have copped the attitude of "anyone but Bush."
While Bush is an easy target for criticism it must be emphasized that Bush is only the tip of the iceberg. It must be said "anything but this administration." In fact, it may be necessary to say "any election but this election."
I really don’t think that people who say this actually mean what they are saying.
It is like a suicidal person. They really don’t want to die, they just want the hurt to stop. In order to remove the hurt they see no other solution but to do something drastic to end their struggle.
We live in times of the knee jerk solution. We live in times of "might makes right" and violence will bring about the peace. It has been shown throughout history that chaotic thinking leads to chaotic outcomes.
It frightening to think that some of our worst nightmares await us because we have ignored some of the admonitions of those who have the ear to the ground listening for the rumbles of an oncoming disaster.
You can dismiss astrologers, psychics, and clerics all you want.
The blue print has been already drawn up and once again those in power do play games of pagan psychodrama, with an added bonus of apocalyptic psychochondriah. Those in power live by another standard. They are nothing like you.
They belong to secret fraternal orders. They take part in strange rituals, and adhere to peculiar rules. They know about things that are far more frightening that anyone could comprehend.
What we know is only a piece of the puzzle. We are given strange tips that sound outrageous.
Many are dismissed immediately.
However it almost seems uncanny how things that were once considered ludicrous are now manifesting themselves.
It may be wise to familiarize yourself with some of the legends and prophecies that have been handed down to see just what the blue print is.
The legend that is vexing the Whitehouse at the moment is a little something called the 20-year curse.
The Shawnee Indians of the Ohio valley had deep mystical traditions. They would receive their direction from a charismatic prophet, or shaman that was supported by Chief Tecumseh. His people became a very powerful collective and Tecumseh encouraged unification from tribe to tribe. The members of the tribes considered Tecumseh a great military leader, visionary, a great speaker, and a successful negotiator.
Tecumseh did not have any love for the white man.
When the United States chose to ignore the unification principle he gathered the unified tribes to defend Indian rights to land. At the battle of Tippecanoe in 1811, Tecumseh lost his brother and legend has it that Tecumseh transmitted a message to General William Henry Harrison.
It was a message that was wrapped in a prophecy. This prophecy has been called "Tecumseh's Curse."
"'Harrison will win next year to be the Great Chief. He will die in his office. I who caused the Sun to darken and Red Men to give up firewater tell you Harrison will die. And after him, every Great Chief chosen every 20 years thereafter will die. And when each one dies, let everyone remember the death of our people."
After he declared it, President William Henry Harrison died of Pneumonia, and for the past 140 years every President elected every 20 years has died in office.
The only exception to the rule was President Ronald Reagan who survived an assassination attempt. He later became "brain dead" as Alzheimer’s Disease has ravaged his mind.
Many people believe that he avoided death because Nancy Reagan, his wife intervened with mystical spells, and astrological advice.
George W. Bush now is a card-carrying member of the "curse club" since he was elected in the year 2000.
While all of this sounds like silly hocus pocus it may be important to point out that supporters of President George W. Bush have been earnestly seeking intervention from God on the matter.
Thousands are praying on his behalf and many of the same people believe that it was their prayers that the bullets meant to kill Reagan were miraculously deflected.
I guess we can praise God for throwing James Brady in front of those bullets.
God must hate Brady.
It also perplexes me a bit because Bush was a Schroedinger's candidate of sorts and eventually was appointed by the Supreme Court. Does a president have to be elected by the people in order for the curse to take hold?
Now we are facing a Schroedinger's election where many people are wondering if Bush has already killed his chances of taking another four years in office that we won’t get back. It also looks a bit like it will be another Schroedinger's election where we are wondering if we will ever be offered a choice.
It feels as if we are facing a "worse case scenario" if people continue to say the words "anyone but Bush."
Think about it, what if the universe decides to mock us with the curse and we end up with 4 years of Cheney and another chance at 4 more? That would be 12 years of the same administration!
That would be what you get when you keep saying "anyone but Bush" and take for granted that Kerry will be the only answer to the mess we are in.
Many of my reports are mingled in strange mysticism and legends that you can either reject and dismiss, or give them thoughtful consideration. As I pound out my ideas on the computer and mingle them in mythology, there are a few readers who will write me off as some hack that is trying to manipulate his readers into buying into hokum that has no scientific fact or reason.
Meanwhile I know why I do this. Many of my listeners know why I do this.
I do it because it is easier to convey a fear or a preemptive message cradled in a legend to take the pain or the sting out of what could be a terrible event.
All events that happen in this world are history and whether or not they are important, pleasing, or dreadful depend on the observer.
As if overnight, politics have become the new religion and the men who occupy positions of power have been deified by their constituents as saviors, a trend that I find most troubling.
The fuzzy feeling of light is blinding the American people like a deer in the headlights.
The unpleasant stammering of a political leader turned prophet, become pleasant once again when God is invoked and sits at the helm along side a President who is far from perfect and in my opinion farther from the God that he claims to peddle to the people.
The illusion that is being built ever so eloquently is that a man of "moral standards" is fighting for you. He is fighting for your freedom and your ability to worship the God that he claims to be the intercessor for.
The result is an illusion of something called the divine King, a king that is set up for martyrdom.
From the first inauguration of President Washington to William Jefferson Clinton there have been 47 elections during which nine Vice Presidents inherited the position of Commander in Chief. There have been 53 inaugurations. Death for a President while serving in office is rare.
However in a zero year the odds of a President dying while serving have become extremely high. Jupiter rules politicians, Saturn rules death. President Bush will be facing what astrologers call a "Saturn return" this year. A Saturn return brings about a judgement or a close call. Alexandra Robbins, author of Secrets of the Tomb: Skull and Bones, the Ivy League, and the Hidden Paths of Power reveals in her book that George W. Bush was called "Temporary" in the Skull and Bones lodge.
Is this some significant cue to the curse of Tecumseh?
When the leftwing pundits say that they want "anyone but Bush in the Whitehouse" they may get their wish. The trickster is always happy to grant the wishes of those who are desperate. All things point to the possibility that Old Scratch is at it again. Pulling the strings of chaos in our lives.
So perhaps you should cast your vote for Satan this election.
That way you won’t be voting for the lesser of two evils.
