Hoping that this post off my tumblr timeline includes the gifs, as they are, pretty much, the post. I think that they are very well thought out and executed.

This bokku-chan fellow is a great artist and pretty hip in my humble opinion. If you’re on tumblr follow along.

Should you be so inclined I have two tumblrs, cool cars (jaded, as you might expect) at misterfibuli, and everything else mrfibulisfortfinds (even more jaded!).

Spending a lot of time thereabouts lately as I am usually at my aunt’s side in this hospice chapter and it is too easy on this moderately-smart phone.

So… onwards…

As we enter the 21st century and a new millenium, Satan has devised the delusion that mankind is entering into an important evolutionary phase – a New Age. The push for “global enlightenment” has now extended to the vast reaches of the universe, into what could be deemed as a “space” religion. However, once this nebulous veil is lifted, a definite correlation emerges between the UFO/Alien phenomenon and occultic/satanic activity.

Photo of a Gargoyle, or perhaps, a representation of humanity’s collective memory of the ‘GODS’ or ‘MICE’ who once walked among us. The ancient civilizations of the Egyptians, Babylonians, Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas shared several intriguing characteristics: They were extremely advanced scientifically and technologically. Animal and human sacrifices were performed at an alarming rate, preceding their demise. They believed they had acquired metaphysical knowledge from the “gods”, whom they perceived as coming from the stars and also the subterranean level of the earth. These cultures disintegrated or became abruptly extinct while at the pinnacle of their existence.

Many of these revered and feared entities were described as looking like winged-reptilians or dragons. Similarly, Satan and his minions were depicted in an identical manner, as seen in artwork throughout the centuries.

A monograph entitled, Reality of the Serpent Race, by Branton, reveals, “In Genesis 3 we read about the ‘Nachash’; Hebrew word for ‘Serpent’. The original Nachash was not actually a snake as most people believe, but an extremely intelligent, cunning creature, possessed with the ability to speak and reason.” Another significant parallel from the Holy Bible is shown in Jeremiah 8:17, “Behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices among you, which will bite you, saith the Lord.” The definition of a cockatrice is a reptilian bird-like creature or winged-serpent. This could very well represent the Phoenix, described in Egyptian mythology.

A theory proposed by Bible scholar I.D.E. Thomas asserts that the race of the “Nephilim” (meaning Giants and/or fallen ones), mentioned in Genesis 6:4 and Numbers 13:33, closely resemble the alien race of the blond Pleiadian Nordics, reported to be eight to nine feet tall. The Nazis attempted to revive this mystical Aryan race in the 1930s and 1940s. Mr. Thomas believes that a hybrid offspring culminated from relations between the Nephilim and the “daughters of man” resulting in increased wickedness upon the earth; and thus evoking God’s wrath in the form of the “Great Flood”.

Interviews taken of ex-Wiccans and Satanists (now Christians) indicate a high level of personal contact with various alien types, especially during coven meetings and holiday rituals. Those coming from the highest echelon of Satanism known as the Illuminati, believe the original people who inhabited the earth descended from Mars via the Moon. They believe the first established civilization was Atlantis. Renowned for their superior intellect, the Atlanteans suffered the same fate as a few of the proceeding cultures already mentioned. The remnant people from Atlantis became the American Indians, according to their interpretation of history.

Dr. Richard Boylan has written extensively about E.T. encounters, and has found five common features of people predominately involved in UFO/alien sightings and abductions: Individuals possessing a high degree of psychic ability. Similar phenomenon occurring with other family members (multi or trans-generational). Native Americans and/or indigenous peoples. Children who have been subjected to severe abuse or trauma. Individuals and/or family members affiliated to government and/or military intelligence agencies or departments.

In conjunction, a strong relationship exists between occultic ritual sites, top secret military installations, and UFO/alien sightings and abductions. There also appears to be a magnetic spiritual vortex (or vacuum) which has drawn an many “New Agers” into these areas (Taos, NM; Sedona,AZ; Boulder, CO, etc.). One prime example is the area near Dulce, NM, where the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has a highly-secured underground complex on the Jicarella Indian Reservation — a region known for Native American shamanism. The facility is said to be used for genetic engineering, including cloning. Several witnesses who were employed there reported seeing different breeds of aliens.

Gosh!

Digging the music… quite the aural treat!

I am not quite sure what to say about the essay, though. I was told that the treatise above was written with me and folks like me in mind, but I do not know that that is a fact or not. Knowing the person who said it quite well does, however, lend credence to that possibility.

Covers a lot of ground, it does, eh? It is… interesting, to say the least.

I also think a Fortean perspective on it is needed, as there are bits in there that are relating to highly speculative happenings.

Make of it what you will… WAAAH!

Enjoy!

Peace.

Now for some harmonics.

Accompanied by a note that said simply “huge beautiful sound waves weaving in and out of phase . . . everything is vibration . . .,” this video arrived via a dear old friend.

Mighty good stuff. Interesting how they run the wands around the bowls to keep the sound going.

This is how this piece is described at the artist’s site:

“So Ham”, based on the six-pointed star, visually represents the sound of OM considered to be the sound of creation. You will want to join us in the So Ham breath, the prayer of life bridging body to spirit as we sound the Vedic creation story.

A lot going on in that summary. Ancient stuff. Need to listen a bit more to connect properly to those old Vedician concepts.

And this is their mantra, it seems… it is the only text on their homepage. Says a lot, though.:

“…the moment you notice that you are just an instrument of the Divine,

… the moment you become like a hollow flute,

… the wind will blow thru you and there will be music.”

I can dig it. It would be nice to able to relax the mind enough so that these swirling, phasing acoustical vibrations could sink in and do their stuff. A good goal… will work on that!

Ah well… enjoy!

Peace.

Two light ships were recently photographed traveling through space near the Zeta Reticuli star system, one of them quite close up! What these UFOs are is still not fully understood. The fractal nature of the ships is rather beautiful to these tired eyes.

Hehe… that’s the name and description that got conjured up for this piece.

I quite like how this one turned out. It shows rather well the propulsion system and, well,  everything!WAAAH!

Strange Object

This fractal nebula-like object has some very strange linear features at it’s center, which are of interest to scientists. The interest for most will be the fascinating region at the top. What is it, we wonder? Is there life there?

The Fold

The Fold is one of the strangest objects in outer space. A sheet of energetic plasma has folded in on itself. Scientists don’t know what to make of it.

Enjoy, yes, indeed do that thing!

I haven’t posted a tune in a while, so we’re due, but this thread didn’t start out in the usual way. You all know that I’m always lurking on ATS for the latest in high strangeness and conspiracy; I saw a thread entitled North Carolina’s strange, strange pond. by member ColeYounger, which as you might imagine is right up my alley, so of course I had to click it.

In it was the following very cool story and the reference to this song, along with this YouTube music video. Two birds, one stone for WATT, eh? Ha!

On the discussion board, there was an old post by a guy who said he grew up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Apparently, the guy had been checking out the online discussions about strange power spots, vortexes and ‘Earth anamolies.’ [sic]

He said that one day in 1969, he and three friends were riding dirt-bike motorcycles in a large forested area near Winston-Salem. He described it as thick forest with bike trails worn through the woods. Deep in the middle of the forest was a large clearing. They had ridden their bikes there many times before, but on this day, when they reached the clearing, they were shocked to see a huge, perfectly round depression in the ground that was probably 80 – 100 feet in diameter . He said it was as if a giant iron ball had been pressed into the ground, buried halfway, and then lifted out. The dirt in the indentation was ‘smooth as glass’. There was not a bump or a ripple anywhere. Of course they thought that it had somehow been man-made…dug out with bulldozers or something. But there was no machinery anywhere. There was no way to get any machinery there! There were no roads, just bike trails. They got really spooked and got the hell out of there. From what the guy said, all four of them were pretty spooked.

They went back to town and told some friends. A couple other guys went there shortly thereafter and they saw it too. The weird depression was gone within a few days, as if it was never there.
Now this is weird! ….supposedly someone took some photos, but never gave them to any news people, reporters, etc. The story became quite a local legend. I’m surprised it’s not really famous. Maybe because the “mystery circle” was there and gone so quickly?

A couple years later, Fleetwood Mac released their song “Hypnotized”. Some of the lyrics definitely sound like the Winston-Salem circle, although the term “pond” is used.

Cole then wonders just exactly how Bob Welch, Fleetwood Mac’s guitarist and songwriter at the time, came up with the lyrics in question…

Well… In FleetwoodMac.net’s The Penguin Q&A Sessions section, ATS researcher Pauligirl found this quote regarding this very happening from the guy who wrote the song, Bob Welch, August 4 – 17, 2003:

Hey Bob! In Hypnotized you talk about a strange pond in North Carolina. What’s the story behind it, and where’s it supposed to be? A curious North Carolinian… (Louie Golden, Charlotte, NC, USA)

A guy that I used to work with from Winston-Salem told me the story of he and some friends riding dirt bikes 20 miles or so out in the woods when they came upon a strange “crater” in the ground with smooth sides like melted glass. It was a “pond” in the sense that there was some rainwater in it I guess.There were no access roads or caterpillar tracks so it wasn’t a construction site. I think the location must have been near Winston-Salem. They all immediately got the feeling they should get out of there. Maybe it was a meteor impact ? I just liked the imagery for the song.

So, Bob actually met and talked with one of the guys who experienced this first-hand. Seriously, how cool is that? What are the odds? Spock?

Needless to say that this is one heck of a mystery. The ‘smooth as glass’ nature of the depression is particularly fascinating. As is the fact that it ‘repaired itself,’ so to speak, after just a few days. Weird! Groundwater rising and falling within a water cave has been suggested, which I suppose is reasonably plausible, but what about the glassy smooth effect? Not a common sinkhole feature that I know of.

And in this reply, posted after I started writing, this feature, or a remnant of it, may have been located! Only those who were there could verify that, of course, but it is certainly intriguing. Maybe they’ll show up and clarify things! It’s happened before. But them Gol darn odds are agin’ us. It would be fabulous if the photos mentioned were to turn up!

I just love how utterly strange our world can be. I really do.

And,  it turns out, much to my delight, that Bob Welch is a big fan of various Fortean subjects, most notably UFOs. I like that and wonder if this incident helped trigger off his interest in the unexplained. If you read the interview with him at the Fleetwood Mac site you will see several questions relating to UFOs and the like. Such as this one…

Hi Bob and thank you for doing another Q&A for your devoted fans ! My questions are….

Since you are into the paranormal like me, who are your favourite authors on the subject ? (i.e. John A. Keel, Stanton Friedman, and Jenny Randles) (Arizona Ranger, Cranford, NJ, USA)

Jacques Vallee, Ingo Swann, Gary Schwartz (the Afterlife Experiments), David R. Hawkins MD (The Eye Of The I), Stephen Greer(Disclosure Project). The ones you mentioned (Freidman etc.) are also good. There are many more…John G White “The Unobstructed Universe” comes to mind. I’m planning to put a list of all the authors I like on my website.

Shame about Greer being in there, really… hopefully Bob has seen the light on that matter. It’s one I fell for initially, too, back in the day, so I can relate and I’m sure all’s well.

May strangeness befall you.

Peace.

Hollow Ruin, a painting by Esao Andrews

This is a painting called Hollow Ruin, by an artist named Esao Andrews.

I find it a little disturbing.

Figured I should show it to you, as I am still struggling with the state of my mind.

It is not a comfortable state.

Kind of like this painting.

Sigh.

Peace.

Now, then, if you were a Mwanza Flat Headed Agama and wanted to dominate your little group of mates, what would you do? Why, you’d dress up as Spiderman, of course!

Well. wouldn’t you?

Mwanza Flat Headed Agama, the Spiderman lizard. Photo by Cassio Lopes.

And… our hero:

Marvel Comics superhero Spiderman.

Knows how to strike a pose, doesn’t he?

So, is this art imitating life, or life imitating art?

A remarkable coincidence. Not that I believe in coincidence, but we’ll leave that bit out.

This is not cryptozoology at all… as this fellow, spotted in the Masia Mara National park near the Rongai river by photographer Cassio Lopes is pretty well known it would seem.

Apparently you can even buy them in pet stores. I really need to get out more, I guess.

Yes, I know I’m slow out the gate and I’m quite sure you’ve all seen this on your Facebooks and such. I saw it a couple of days ago myself at this ATS post but my head’s just not torqued down properly these days, as you may recall from my last post.

Maybe someone will see our little buddy for the first time! Or not. Sigh.

You can get some more details at The Daily Fail, er, Mail. They have more details and a pic of the photographer, too. Here’s an excerpt.

What a MARVEL! The blue and red lizard with a striking resemblance to comic book superhero Spiderman

By KERRY MCQUEENEY

PUBLISHED: 14:00 EST, 1 July 2012 | UPDATED: 16:56 EST, 1 July 2012

One has to wonder whether this lizard’s spider-senses are tingling. For the reptile bears more than a passing resemblance to the Marvel comic superhero Spiderman.

The lizard’s amazing red and blue markings are strikingly similar to the suit worn by the crime-fighting, web-weaving daredevil.

And – as the reptile was captured crawling around on his rock – he appeared to strike an identical pose to Spidey’s favoured crouching pose.

[…]

Ha! Will wonders never cease…

I just hope Marvel doesn’t try to sue the little creatures.

Peace.

The Lens, Well Lit
This is another image of ‘The Lens,’ The Lens was encountered recently near an odd, grey glowing plasma cloud in the Third Quadrant of local space. Here the cloud increased dramatically in luminosity for a while, lighting up the object quite nicely. Spanning a full kilometer in width and length, it is estimated to hold at least several thousand entities. The nature of whom are at present unknown, unfortunately, as sensors cannot currently penetrate whatever it’s hull is composed of. Crews are working on it. Feverishly.

(NOTE: You can try different background colors on this one… to give it your own special ‘feel.’
Choosing a smaller size and an alternate print stock than my default will adjust pricing accordingly.)

This is a new one… and damned if I don’t really like it!

It’s called ‘well lit’ because in the first image captured (on the left, below) by the ship the cloud was not so bright and one could see countless energetic nodules just swirling around in the plasma… there is also an educational placemat available (my first, on the right) that should make for some rather interesting dinners…

Peace.

Pretty sure you will agree with me when I posit that the preponderance of precision matches mentioned in the video simply cannot be mere coincidences. Actually, truth be told, I do not believe in coincidences. Remember, it’s all connected.

Speed of light, huh? Hmmm. Speed of light, indeed.

I dunno, this sort of thing fascinates me no end. Look at how many decimal places that match goes to. And all the others. Don’t worry there’s even more of them below.

I’m going to have to watch the rest of this series eventually, I can tell. Hopefully soon. Very cool.

Yep, even more. Just doesn’t quit, does it?

The original idea was just to post the first vid above to show you the amazing relationships therein, but then I watched these other two… and there were more! And then I saw with delight that he mentions some of the work of a dear, dear man, the late John Michell, who was a personal friend of mine. He hugged me, man! What a beautiful mind… you all should read his books. And then he mentions the work of R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, the man who’s work started my very wise and learned mentor off on his journey into the secrets of ancient Egypt.

My interest, needless to say, was significantly peaked.

And as such, here they are for you all to enjoy.

Secrets In Plain Sight is an awe inspiring exploration of great art, architecture, and urban design which skillfully unveils an unlikely intersection of geometry, politics, numerical philosophy, religious mysticism, new physics, music, astronomy, and world history.

Exploring key monuments and their positions in Egypt, Stonehenge, Jerusalem, Rome, Paris, London, Edinburgh, Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco brings to light a secret obsession shared by pharaohs, philosophers and kings; templars and freemasons; great artists and architects; popes and presidents, spanning the whole of recorded history up to the present time.

As the series of videos reveals how profound ancient knowledge inherited from Egypt has been encoded in units of measurement, in famous works of art, in the design of major buildings, in the layout of city streets and public spaces, and in the precise placement of obelisks and other important monuments upon the Earth, the viewer is led to perceive an elegant harmonic system linking the human body with the architectural, urban, planetary, solar, and galactic scales.

Wow.

What does it all really mean? Seriously. What?

Peace.

Birth O’ My Heart

This is the way it looked, countless trillions of years ago, when my heart was first born. Born from the swirling storm of energy that I started life as. Tumultuous times those were, filled with the romance of possibility. Fractal art is the only way that events like this can really be described. Hey, you know, this one might by a good one for my special Earth girl…

 

Or maybe not… it’s either this or a … oh, wait. Never mind.

Ha! I’m happy. My hearts don’t usually come out this nice, or should I say this purposed. The ‘stutters’ just before my little heart fully forms, (yes, it is a time exposure!), via controlled ‘detonation-in-place’ – turned up well and are just this side of recognizable. Ha!

So what do you all think? Like it?

Should probably put it on other items as well… that goes for a lot of designs already done.

Work, work, work. Hehe, but fun.

Peace.

There’s a lot of detail in it, notably the numerous (and relentless) tendrils of this thing as it proceeds through this rather odd little system, engulfing whole planets unlucky enough to be in it’s path.
