Crow Notes: Art and Science

After I posted Part Three of Corona the Crow, I went looking for more verification of brain anatomy in cultural and religious art, so if you liked the Brainstem Venus figurines you’ll probably like these videos from graphic artist Brad Klausen of Magical Egypt who made these videos of his brain schematic findings some years ago.

Twilight Language, by Michael A. Hoffman II, is a book written as the follow-up to 2001’s Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare. Below the quote which he describes as brain worship is a recent two-part audio on Twilight Language posted to MAH’s twitter feed:

“[the] perception of science is inextricably tied to alchemical objectives, so [the Rosicrucian] manuscripts [of 1614] are believed to have been authored by Johann Valentin Andreo and his Tubingian Circle… and there’s another foundational Rosicrucian text, The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz of 1605, also by Johann Valentin Andreo and the so-called Knights of the Golden Stone. The Rosicrucian manifestos reflected Paracelsus’s anticipation of the capacity of human brain power to take command over the stars and create new forms of life… Here we’re observing the launching of the major axis of the Cryptocracy whose subsequent influence on our world is in some respects inestimable…. [You] see here that the terms Magia and Kabbala come from a Catholic philosopher of the occult [Pico de Mirandola] and it has its origin in the Pontificate of Alexander the Sixth, the so-called Borgia pope who executed Geralomo de Savanorola…who was the enemy of the occult…so…what we’re getting a hint of here is twilight language, the literary game, the ludibrium

…Jacob Boehme in his (‘Rising Dawn’) of 1612 wrote that, …‘The time has come to speak the Adamic language, i.e. the Primordial idiom, which allowed Enoch to converse with the angels.’ The Rosicrucians claim to already possess the knowledge of this language but they make it plain that it cannot be read or understood except by a minority. They proclaim the Age of the Tongue but they impose the Law of Silence on whoever rallies to them. Secrecy is a fundamental element in the Confessio Fraternatis which mentions it at least ten times…held to be inaccessible without a long intiation. Hermes Trismegistus says to Aesclepius, ‘it is an impious thing to divulge to the masses a teaching filled with Divine Majesty, the True Philosophy, which the Confessio extolls as Hermeticist.’  What we’re seeing here is a clear premonition of the marriage of scientism with magic, alchemy, and Kabbala– the capacity of human brain power to take command…  The Rosicrucian manifesto is afforded by the accelerating creation in our 21st century along lines of Egyptian-type chimera of millennia ago… “

Twilight Language Part One ;  Part Two


Ludibrium — Ludibrium is a word derived from Latin ludus (plural ludi), meaning a plaything or a trivial game. In Latin ludibrium denotes an object of fun, and at the same time, of scorn and derision, and it also denotes a capricious game itself: e.g., ludibria ventis (Virgil), “the playthings of the winds”, ludibrium pelagis (Lucretius), “the plaything of the waves”; Ludibrio me adhuc habuisti (Plautus), “Until now you have been toying with me.”

The term “ludibrium” was used frequently by Johann Valentin Andreae (1587–1654) in phrases like “the ludibrium of the fictitious Rosicrucian Fraternity” when describing the Rosicrucian Order, most notably in his Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, published anonymously in 1616, of which Andreae subsequently claimed to be the author… Andreae compares the world to an amphitheatre where no one is seen in their true light. This conception of the Rosicrucian world as theater was popularized by the French Situationist Guy Debord in Society of the Spectacle (1967)… Paul Arnold translated Andreae’s usage as farce,[2] but this conception has been contested by Frances Yates (Yates), who took Rosicrucianism seriously and who suggested that Andreae’s use of the term implied more nearly some sort of “Divine Comedy“, a dramatic allegory played in the political domain… Similarly, the melancholic Jaques in [Shakespeare’s] As You Like It (1599–1600) asserts, after the fashion of Heraclitus, that “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players.” Robert Anton Wilson has suggested that the Priory of Sion is a modern ludibrium: The Priory Of Sion fascinates me, because it has all the appearances of being a real conspiracy, and yet if you look at the elements another way, it looks like a very complicated practical joke by a bunch of intellectual French aristocrats. And half of the time I believe it really is a practical joke by a bunch of intellectual French aristocrats. And then part of the time I think it is a real conspiracy.[3]

More from Michael Hoffman on the Alchemical Processing of Humanity:

[clip of the transcript] M.H.: “”The Revelation of the Method actually comes from my mentor, James Shelby Downard. I met him in Saint Petersburg, Florida in the mid-1970s and he was a very unusual man. He walked the razor edge between genius and eccentricity, but he had a mind where he was able to see and detect patterns. And also, he had an historian’s mind in terms of the research that he did, and he was the one that set me on this path of the Revelation of the Method. He also called it ‘Must Be’ or ‘The Making Manifest of All that is Hidden.’
“And in the sense that in the very last days – not necessarily the last days of the planet or some eschatology like that – but in the last days of this grand conspiracy, which he centered, and I center also, in Great Britain as an initial starting point for it, and there are many other starting points, but that’s perhaps the major one – that what was set in motion in terms of what we saw with the first atomic bomb blast, the creation and destruction of primordial matter at the Trinity Site on the 33rd degree of north parallel latitude in New Mexico and then the assassination of Kennedy, that killing of the king rite in 1963 close to the 33rd degree of north parallel latitude. And then Mr. Downard added to that the Revelation of the Method: the way that the system would deal with this is by first suppressing it and then letting its own critics and investigators of the phenomenon be the ones who actually emblazoned and embellished their own invulnerability. They’re very much concerned about projecting a sense that they are virtuoso criminal masterminds, which indeed they are, but they’re actually invested in having that set forth because it demoralizes people and it encourages a great deal of the apathy and abulia, or lack of will, that we’re seeing in the people today.”

“Dating back to 2020, there are reports of street lights in cities turning purple. This reported purpling comes from states such as Wisconsin, California, New York, New Mexico, Maryland, North Carolina, and Florida. Internationally, this phenomenon has hit Ireland and Vancouver, Canada… The problem is due to the packaging that surrounds the LED street lights. LED lights come in a variety of colors, but most modern ones have wavelengths that combine to create a blue hue as seen by the human eye… The purpling in cities around the world is due to defective LED lights — and the vagarities of the global supply chain.”  

Light of the Vorld – Tvilight Time 

[2013, CNN] “Imagine if a streetlamp knew you were coming. It could announce your arrival from a distance… change color at will, even announce days in advance when its bulb was set to blow… The system is called Tvilight. It was invented by Dutch designer Chintan Shah while a student at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. When flying overseas, he noticed streetlamps lighting streets that, in the middle of the night, were empty and desolate. ‘I started researching,’ he says. ‘I wondered, why are they burning? How much does it cost? Is this a problem? I discovered some amazing numbers.’ Shah found that Europe pays over €10 billion ($13 billion) a year powering streetlights, which accounts for more than 40% of government energy bills… Tvilight’s primary purpose is to conserve energy. But when CNN invited Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde to offer advice as a mentor for Shah, he pointed to the technology’s more artistic potential.

“ ‘How can we use the technology to make environments more human? More sustainable? More natural?’ asks Roosegaarde. ‘We want to make it like it’s your friend, or it’s an animal, or it does things you don’t know about. It’s not just a machine with a feedback loop, but something that has its own intelligence and is willing to negotiate, to hack you in the same way you hack it.’… It is the type of thinking that garners endless scenarios. Depending on the occasion, streetlamps can flicker and change color to create any number of designs… ‘This is not just about saving electricity, it’s not just about the medium, it’s about the message, and what you want it to generate, says Roosegaarde.”

Daan Roosegaarde’s “Urban Sun” safe space: “the ‘Urban Sun’ streetlight that “cleans public spaces of coronavirus”: URBAN SUN cleans public spaces of the coronavirus with a safe far-UVC 222nm light to bring human well-being. After the successful launch in Rotterdam, URBAN SUN went on a world tour including Aarhus Festival in Denmark, Museum of Design Atlanta in the USA, the Netherlands Pavilion at the World Expo 2020 Dubai in the UAE, and The Solar Biennale in Rotterdam.

Care to examine the twilight language imagery in Roosegaarde’s video showing the safe meeting threshold in the medical device Urban Sun corona where participants can step inside the golden circle – a total eclipse of the sun—and get a handshake?  

World Economic Forum promotes Roosegaarde’s Urban Sun:  

The Tvilight project is backed by the international Zhaga Consortium, now the sole global standard-bearer of IoT LiFi, promoted by its Secretary General Mr. Dee Denteneer:

“The Zhaga Consortium is an international organization, founded in February 2010,  establishing industry specifications of interfaces for components used in LED luminaires. As of February 2021 it has more than 300 members. The consortium is a member program of the IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization [1] (IEEE-ISTO.)  Zhaga’s specifications, which are called Books,[2] address electrical, mechanical, optical, thermal and communication interfaces and allow the interoperability of components.[3] Results of Zhaga specifications are that components are interoperable[4] and can be replaced or serviced and that a LED luminaire can be upgraded after installation when new technology is available…”

“5/14/18 – Lighting Episode 26(Full Version) – Dr. Dee Denteneer 46:30 Dr. Dee Denteneer is the Secretary General of the Zhaga Consortium…[the] lighting-industry consortium that is standardizing LED light engines and associated components, including modules and drivers. The end goal of the Consortium is to turn global chaos into order. Fat chance or worth a shot?”

Optogenetics and 5G LiFi

Controlling brain circuits with blue light, as far as I know, is currently dependent on the insertion and expression of  ‘opsins’ : light sensitive proteins that were first isolated from algae in1985, enabling  the emergent field of optogenetics. Blue light manipulation of channelrhodopsin (ChR) dna from eukaryotic plant-like algae vectored with viral AAV (adeno-associated virus) is explained in this 2011 TED talk by Edward Boyden who was a 2005 publishing pioneer in optogenetics, along with Karl Deisseroth, a subject in my 2016 post ‘Threat Tech: Neuroweapons.’  Boyden:

Here’s a few snips from Threat Tech:

“A lifetime transgene viral vector:

2008 –“AAV [adeno-associated virus] was initially considered as a vector by only a few laboratories…[but] with time, it has become among the most commonly used viral vectors… [because] almost all other viral vectors lead to an initial burst of transgene expression that commonly disappears after a relatively short time, measured in weeks. AAV transgene expression, on the other hand, frequently persists for years or the life time of the animal...”

Using Light to deliverTouch:

March 2012– “We have recently generated.. transgenic lines of rat in which …some neurons were endowed with photosensitivity by the introduction of the ChR2 gene, coding an algal photoreceptor molecule… We identified that ChR2 is expressed in a certain population of large neurons in the DRG [dorsal root ganglion]..[and] were classified as mechanoreceptive… Each..rat showed a sensory-evoked behavior in response to blue LED flashes on the plantar skin. It is thus suggested that each rat acquired an unusual sensory modality of sensing blue light through the skin as touch-pressure.”

Is it possible that one could hear light, smell light, taste light and touch light? When ChR2 [algal opsin] is targeted to different peripheral sensory neurons by viral vectors… the animals can sense the light as various sensations such as hearing, touch, pain, [etc.].”

2019 issue of LED Professional [page59-of-80] “LiFi applications are manifold… streetlights could play a major role in future smart cities. They could provide gigabit bi-directional wireless connectivity. Interestingly, with LiFi this would also be possible during daytime. As illustrated in figure, LiFi can also unlock smart transport systems which are part of our fully connected smart cities. Because cars typically use LEDs or lasers in headlights and taillights, these lights can be used for gigabit inter-car communication, and data communication to street furniture such as traffic lights and street lights… An additional important application area is the internet of things (IoT). The IoT can be classified in the industrial IoT, and the general IoT… This connectivity will act as the ‘nervous system’ for our future things. Assume embedded microprocessors, sensor, memory and machine learning algorithms, LiFi will provide the high bandwidth, low latency connectivity to realize meaningful artificial intelligence…  LiFi is a disruptive…fundamental 5G technology. It can unlock the IoT…[and]offer new solutions to close the digital divide and…have a catalytic effect for the merger of two major industries: • The wireless communications industry and • The lighting industry…” [by Harald Haas]

—same article, page 58: (p58/80) …”Sunlight constitutes a constant interfering signal outside the bandwidth used for data modulation…Therefore, constant sunlight can be removed using electrical filters…[But] In fact, we argue that sunlight is hugely beneficial as it enables solar cell based LiFi receivers where the solar cell acts as data receiver device, and at the same time harvests sunlight as energy.”


“In 1979, Francis Crick proposed a novel solution: use light to control neurons (Boyden et al. 2005). Derived from this very idea and with the effort of many scientists, the revolutionary technique of optogenetics was born.  Optogenetics, a genetic method to turn select neurons on or off with light, was invented in 2005 by Karl Deisseroth and Edward Boyden (Boyden et al. 2005). Notably, their development of optogenetics began with a discovery by Peter Hegemann who successfully expressed the blue light-depolarizing opsin, channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2), in cell culture (Nagel et al. 2003). Expanding upon these findings, Deisseroth and Boyden virally expressed ChR2 in neurons, and, miraculously, they demonstrated for the first time that neurons could be activated using blue light (Boyden et al. 2005). With millisecond precision, optogenetics enables the fast control of neuronal spiking. As a technique using both optics and genetics, the term opto-genetics was coined from their extraordinary findings.”  

London-based Cambridge/Cavendish alumnus Francis Crick (1916-2004) shared a Nobel Prize in 1962 and took up the remainder of his life and career at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla (San Diego) California –a bio-inspired think tank co-founded by the polio vaccine maker Jonas Salk –which was under the nominal leadership of former Manhattan Project and General Atomics scientist Frederick de Hoffmann at the time of his 1979 ‘light control’ pronouncement. Crick had also said “any child can make a virus” in reference to the filtrate method of procuring bio-nano-materials, the use of which Jonas Salk himself called metabiology.     

In his Salk Institute capacity as a neuroscientist and theorist, Crick wrote“ ‘The Astonishing Hypothesis [: The Scientific Search for the Soul’].. a 1994 book by scientist Francis Crick about consciousness. Crick, one of the co-discoverers of the molecular structure of DNA, later became a theorist for neurobiology and the study of the brain. …posits that ‘a person’s mental activities are entirely due to the behavior of nerve cells, glial cells, and the atoms, ions, and molecules that make them up and influence them.’ …Crick focuses on the primate visual system and breaks down the prerequisites for conscious experience into several broad subconditions, including some sort of short-term memory and attention mechanism. The book then delves into a brief overview of many neuroscientific topics, ranging from a survey of how neurons function to a description of basic neural circuits and their artificial equivalents. Throughout, Crick cites various experiments which illustrate the narrow points he is making about visual awareness…”

Among Crick’s  erstwhile detractors, according to the Wikipedia, are the purveyors of ‘quantum mind’ ; however, in my opinion, equally an argument of mechanics with a finer spin. When it comes to the meaning of corona as a vessel on the nanoscale, ‘quantum’ energy transactions are subject to material principles. As I grow in familiarity with photonics and nanomaterials, the ‘viruses’ are gaining definition as technologically derived proto-fullerenes. An example of note is a side-by-side comparison of a poliovirus model and a carbon-60 “buckminsterfullerene”. The fullerenes of most interest to me at present are the silicon carbide spheroids:

“also known as carborundum (/ˌkɑːrbəˈrʌndəm/), is a hard chemical compound containing silicon and carbon. A semiconductor, it occurs in nature as the extremely rare mineral moissanite,.. Naturally occurring moissanite is found in only minute quantities in certain types of meteoritecorundum deposits, and kimberlite… While rare on Earth, silicon carbide is remarkably common in space. It is a common form of stardust found around carbon-rich stars, and examples of this stardust have been found in pristine condition in primitive (unaltered) meteorites.”  

Shown are structurally identical models of carbon-60 and poliovirus icosahedrons, however the first poliovirus model was a simpler form of dodecahedron, demonstrated by Rosalind Franklin’s group  with a ‘balloon model’ for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair (below center).Its shape matches a more recent lab-made quasicrystal (below right), a ‘family’ type of structures discovered in meteorites and nuclear blast craters.


Somewhere along the line, and I’m guessing between 1958 and 1962, an important story about what viruses really are got deleted. The masonic lodge backdrop of the polio model photo is not lost on me and valuable insight came from pursuing the Franklin group’s experience with poliovirus. They found that storing their virus in ordinary glass vials caused it to disappear before they could work with it, so they, and all the labs collaborating with them such as the UC Berkeley Virus Lab, switched to special quartz optical glass.

Here’s the idea: “Fused quartz, fused silica or quartz glass is a glass consisting of almost pure silica (silicon dioxide, SiO2) in amorphous (non-crystalline) form. This differs from all other commercial glasses in which other ingredients are added which change the glasses’ optical and physical properties, such as lowering the melt temperature. Fused quartz, therefore, has high working and melting temperatures… Compared to other common glasses, the optical transmission of pure silica extends well into the ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths, so is used to make lenses and other optics for these wavelengths. Depending on manufacturing processes, impurities will restrict the optical transmission, resulting in commercial grades of fused quartz optimized for use in the infrared, or (then more often referred to as fused silica) in the ultraviolet…”

Crow Notes: Places

“Crow Notes” augments the series Corona the Crow with some of the loose information collected for review but not otherwise incorporated—for the time being, the Notes are a rolling, ongoing accumulation of references and ideas spun off the main theme. When I started the first Corona last year, I was literally swamped in a matter of weeks after getting the idea that the ‘crow’ at the root of ‘corona’ needed an exposition.

…take a tour…

Wall of the Crow in ancient Egypt

Image source above

“One of the oldest monumental structures on the Giza Plateau is the Wall of the Crow [marked in red]. Believed to have been the original entrance to the Giza Plateau and the dividing line between the sacred precincts of Giza and the surrounding area, the surviving section of the Wall of the Crow is over 600 feet long and over 30 feet high. The megalithic passageway is one of the largest in the ancient world and the megalithic stone over the passageway is one of the largest stones at Giza… Although all of the pyramids and temples on the Giza Plateau are very precisely aligned with the cardinal directions, the Wall of the Crow is aligned five degrees north of due east and five degrees south of due west, in alignment with the line of ancient sites as it crosses over the Giza Plateau… the [line of ancient] sites are Easter Island, Nazca, Ollantaytambo, Tassili n’Ajjer, Siwa, Giza, Petra, Ur, Perseopolis, Mohenjo Daro, Khajuraho, Pyay, Sukothai and Angkor…

… just before dawn on the spring equinox in 11,500 B.C.

At this moment, when the angle of the three stars of Orion’s belt above the horizon matched the angle of the three pyramids at Giza, the angle of the line from Regulus to Orion’s belt is five degrees above the horizon, matching the angle of the Wall of the Crow and the azimuth of the prehistoric alignment of world wonders as it crosses over Giza.”

“rab” references the crow/raven, and in this case, the enclosures of Ra/Re

‘Crow’ sites:

“Abū Jirāb, also spelled Abu Gurab, Abu Ghurab, or Abu Gurob, ancient Egyptian site, about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Abū Ṣīr, between Ṣaqqārah and Al-Jīzah; it is known as the location of two 5th-dynasty (c. 2465–c. 2325 bce) sun temples. The first part of the 5th dynasty is recognized as a period of unusually strong emphasis on the worship of the sun god Re…” ; a.k.a Abu Gorab—“ The sun temple is situated near Memphis, and is closely linked with the Abusir necropolis, both geographically and functionally.”


“Abusir (Arabic: ابو صير  Egyptian Arabic pronunciation: [æbuˈsˤiːɾ]; Egyptian pr wsjr; Coptic: ⲃⲟⲩⲥⲓⲣⲓ busiri, “the House or Temple of Osiris“; Ancient Greek: Βούσιρις) is the name given to an ancient Egyptian archaeological pyramid complex comprising the ruins of 14 pyramids dating to the Old Kingdom period, and is part of the Pyramid Fields of the Memphis and its Necropolis UNESCO World Heritage Site… The Abusir pyramid complex is located on the Western Desert plateau at the edge of the cultivated plain, with the Giza Pyramids to its north, and Saqqara to its south, and served as one of the main elite cemeteries for the ancient Egyptian capital city of Memphis…”

Back on Giza Plateau, The Tomb of the Birds is a chamber complex with an entrance to a cave system that points back toward the center of the pyramid plaza, a newer discovery made by Andrew Collins, as told in the documentary The Lost Caves of Giza; It lies underground, cut into a ridge on the northwest side of the plateau, and based on the insight of Collins’s friend Rodney Hale, confirms that the Giza complex aligns to the constellation Cygnus (“the swan”) known as the Northern Cross.

Wall of the Crow in its correct orientation is on the southeast corner projecting into the existing Muslim cemetery (SE) toward a natural rock mound called Gebel Gibli, the head of the bird (Cygnus) which the ancient Egyptians would have revered as an ibis—the god Thoth/Hermes– or alternately, the Falcon/Hawk-headed god Sokar.

Gebel Gibli (below), abutting the cemetery, looking south from the direction of the Sphinx, appears to have a large opening left of center.

“Sokar (also known as Seker, and in Greek, Sokaris or Socharis) was the Memphite god of the dead, but he was also the patron of the workers who built the necropolis, the craftsmen who made tomb artefacts, and of those who made ritual objects and substances used in mummification. The meaning of his name is unclear. It may be derived from the term “skr” (meaning “cleaning the mouth”) mentioned in the Coffin Texts and in writings relating to the “Opening of the Mouth” ceremony (one of the funerary rituals)… Sokar was known by the epithet “he of Rosetau” [Rose+Tau= Red Cross, Rosicrucian]. This refers to the area around the Giza pyramids, but also related more generally to any necropolis and to the entrance to the underworld. He is also known as the “lord of the mysterious region” (the underworld) and the “great god with his two wings opened” – referring to his origins as a hawk deity…   speculat[ion posits] that Rostau was located near Gebel Gibli, close to the Great Pyramid, and that an actual Tomb of Sokar is yet to be found under the sand close to the mysterious gateway and enclosure wall known as the “Wall of the Crow”. So far, no evidence has either proved or discounted this theory.”

Sokar’s role as the god of the dead was subsumed over time by Osiris as Egypt became unified.

“Andrew Collins: The Cygnus Key – The Denisovan Legacy, Gobekli Tepe and the birth of Egypt”



The Kelpius Cave, Philadelphia PA

Cro – Maat, “The Truth Shall Be” (or ‘Holey’ Truth)

Rosicrucian source: [above text, p43]

“Johannes Kelpius was born Johann Kelp in Transylvania in 1667, near the village of Sighisoara, the birthplace of the infamous Vlad the Impaler (the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula). After the death of his father in 1684, Johann was sent by three patrons to complete his education at Bavaria’s University of Altdorf, once one of Europe’s most respected institutions… It is thought that while at the university he became acquainted with the Pietist religious movement. Pietism was initially a reaction against the formalism of orthodox Lutheranism, but spread to include a wide range of esoteric (and heretical) Christian philosophies.

One of the most charismatic figures in German Pietism was Johann Jacob Zimmerman, a brilliant mathematician, astronomer, and cleric. Zimmerman had been dismissed from his position as a Lutheran minister for preaching that the Lutheran Church was the Anti-Christ. In the years following his dismissal and subsequent exile, Zimmerman formed a small group named The Chapter of Perfection… Probably around 1692, the Chapter of Perfection received an anonymous offer of free land in Pennsylvania and free passage there. America was regarded by the young Pietists to be a land untainted by the sins of European decadence, and the ordained place to await the final drama of mankind.

In August of 1693, near the time the group was about to depart for America, Zimmerman died, leaving the young Kelpius as the group’s spiritual leader. Kelpius was determined to complete Zimmerman’s mission, and after a remarkable sea voyage, the group arrived in the infant city of Philadelphia. Eventually Kelpius led his group to a ridge above the Wissahickon gorge, one of the oldest geologic formations in North America. There along the fortieth parallel, Kelpius constructed a forty-foot square tabernacle, forty in his esoteric philosophy being a number of the highest mystical significance… They were often referred to collectively as “The Woman in the Wilderness,” likely in reference to a passage in the Biblical book of Revelation, but perhaps as a code phrase understood only by the initiated.

… Today, a small man-made cave in a remote wooded corner of Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park is considered by many to have once been the meditation cell of the young mystically-minded spiritual teacher. A stone marker beside the cave claims Kelpius as America’s first Rosicrucian master. Both the authenticity of the cave and the claim of Kelpius’s position with the Rosicrucians are not conclusive.”

AMORC in the USA can be traced to the French ‘Martinist’ Rosicrucians who were allegedly taught their brand of esotericism by Portuguese kaballist Pasqually,


“kel” and “curia” come out of the Korone  crow lexicon—see Part One for crow words. More on Rosicrucians to come.


The Roman Curia, Saint Peter’s Basilica

Curia in medieval and later Latin usage means “court” in the sense of “royal court” rather than “court of law”. The Roman Curia is sometimes anglicized as the Court of Rome, as in the 1534 Act of Parliament that forbade appeals to it from England.[5] It is the papal court and assists the Pope in carrying out his functions… It is normal for every Latin Roman Catholic diocese to have its own curia for its administration…”


 Court of New York [Appellate Division], 25th at Madison Square Park, a.k.a. The Temple of Justice

“The Manhattan Appellate Courthouse is home to the Appellate Division, First Department of the New York State Supreme Court…This spectacular marble-faced Beaux Arts style courthouse is three-stories high. The front facade on 25th Street, is dominated by an imposing triangular pedimented entrance portico supported by six Corinthian columns. The Madison Avenue facade is no less striking, with a two-story flat cornice supported by four fluted Corinthian columns… The courtroom has a stained glass dome set into the gilded coffered ceiling. Like the main hall, there are spectacular marble walls, murals, and original [Herter Bros. e.g.] furniture.”

A recently installed statue called NOW has temporarily taken residence atop the courthouse – her skirted twin is across the street in Madison Square Park.  Part Three of the Crow series, I suggest, lines up the ‘NOW-Witness’ sculptures with the Venus brainstems—the brains of giants, eh?

The courthouse:  “The collection of nine figures perched on the roof’s edge of the Appellate Division Courthouse of New York State represents history’s greatest legal thinkers. The figures include Confucius, Moses, Zoroaster, King Alfred the Great, Saint Louis, Manu, Lycurgus, Solon, and Justinian. A tenth statue depicting Lady Justice sits above the building entrance. Each of the nine statues was sculpted by a different artist, and the sculptors’ names are as impressive as their subjects. Among them are Daniel Chester French and Edward Clarke Potter who created the iconic New York Public Library lions. When the courthouse was originally built in the 1890s, the collection included a statue of Mohammad, the founder of Islam. However, in 1955, the statue was removed at the request of the Egyptian, Pakistani and Indonesian governments because Islamic law prohibits images of the prophet. The statue has been lost to time.”

“Major public works by Edward Potter in New York City include the marble statue of Zoroaster…on the cornice of the New York Appellate Court House, Madison Square… but he is best known for the Library Lions.”

Saint Louis, King Louis IX of France, was a Capetian prince of the 13th century whose royal artifacts were almost lost in the fire of Notre Dame on April 15, 2019. ; Notre Dame’s Rose windows: “In architecture, the rose (rosette) window is the shape of the openwork bay in the wall, while rose is the name of stained glass …The south rose, also known as the “midday rose”, was given to Notre-Dame Cathedral by the king of France Saint Louis IX… with the theme of the Last Judgement…”

Eleven Madison Square restaurant installation in 2017 of Daniel Turner’s “EMP Step” which is the foundry-melted contents of the chef’s former metal kitchen equipment in toto into a slender black horizontal monolith.

Nihilist art is not what interests me about Madison Square Park—besides its Midtown location, my interest was piqued by following the story of West Nile Virus in 1999 that broke out in the vicinity north of Corona Park (=110, or 11) in Queens (Aug99) and spread throughout NYC (Sep99) after it was noticed for many months that birds were being poisoned in Manhattan’s parks.

   Corona Park-Flushing Meadows had been home to two World’s Fairs and almost became the permanent site of the United Nations had not the Rockefeller family (under Nelson’s initiative) stepped in with a property donation: “The 11th-hour deal that put the United Nations on a midtown site long covered by East River slums and slaughter-houses came in a frantic rush on Tuesday the 10th of December 1946, just the day before the General Assembly’s deadline for decision.”

[Aug 12, 1999]“Someone is poisoning birds in Central Park. ‘Between Tuesday morning and yesterday afternoon, 30 pigeons, 10 sparrows, one grackle and two ducks were found dead in the park,’ the New York Times reports this morning…  they can’t be certain of the cause of death, but everyone agrees that fowl play is likely. Evidently there have been signs of such bird murder since 1997.”

I included a piece of the West Nile story in EMF Killing Fields,; but my broader perspective about “bird murder since 1997” should be an addendum to the presence of Omnipoint Communications Corp—Omnipoint, which built out its wireless network in NYC in 1997, became the giant T-Mobile now modeling its New Magenta logo color. (see Part One of Corona the Crow)

[from EMF Killing Fields] Dec.1997–“In wireless, it is often said, coverage is king. Omnipoint has had its fair share of cell siting hassles. To get over objections, the carrier has placed its transceivers inside gargoyles on the facades of landmark buildings in Manhattan..


Corona Park  — Queens, New York


Shape on the landscape — Image source:

“After the Civil War, the surrounding area became a popular waterfront resort and wealthy New Yorkers built elegant houses nearby. During 19th century industrialization at the turn of the century, the wetlands and creek flowing from Flushing Bay became an ash dump, described in 1925 as a “valley of ashes” in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby…[After the Fairs in ’39 and ‘64]  in 1967, the land—renamed Flushing Meadows Corona Park, now the largest in Queens—reverted to the City and was fully landscaped… This park gets its name from two adjacent communities, Flushing and Corona. Flushing, to the east, was a Dutch settlement originally called “Vlissingen,” after a city in the Netherlands. By the mid-1600s, residents had shortened the name to “Vlishing,” which would become “Flushing” with the arrival of British settlers. To the west of the park is Corona. Originally called West Flushing, it became known as Corona in the late 1800s. This name is thought to have come from Italian immigrants who moved into residences developed by the Crown Building Company.”


Italy… chartered by an ‘Old Catholic Orthodox’ sect:

“The Pythagorean University of Krotona, Graeca Magna, was founded by the great philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras in the fifth century before Christ. In the twentieth-century, it was re-established and chartered by the Patriarchate of Antioch in the Ancient Orthodox Catholic Church under Patriarch Moran Mar Basilius Abdullah III (Dr William Bernard Crow, 1895-1976). Dr Crow’s life and work is detailed on this page. He was both an Orthodox bishop and a distinguished scientist, holding the degree of Doctor of Science of the University of London. He was also, through the Order of the Holy Wisdom, concerned with the study of religious and supernatural belief from the origins of man onwards. His re-establishment of the Pythagorean University was for the study of the Arcane Sciences and matters cognate thereto, and that continues to be its function today.”

“The name Morocco comes from the Berber word “amerruk”, diminutive of “amurakuc” which means “land of god”. It is also the original name of “Marrakech”. Before mentioning the name “Morocco”, one spoke of the Maghreb Al Aqsa, that is to say the extreme western Maghreb (“Al Maghrib” the setting, “Al Aqsa” extreme), at the time of the Arab conquests, around 700 AD. Before that, about 2000 years ago, at the time of the Romans, there was talk of Mauritania, the country of the Moors (western Maghreb), “mauri” in Latin meaning Berber of Mauritania, or Numidia (Maghreb in general), with its Numidians (nomadic or semi-sedentary). When the Maghreb was not yet subdivided, i.e. at the time of the Phoenician and Carthaginian comptoirs, Ifriqiya with the people of the Libyans corresponded to the whole of North Africa, from Libya to present-day Morocco.”


“Berber history goes back to prehistoric times. In fact, Morocco is home to the oldest Homo Sapiens ever found — nearly 300,000 years old!… The Berbers proudly call themselves the Amazigh, the ‘free people.’ The name ‘Berber’ derives from ‘Barbary,’ that is, from the Greek barbaria… Thousands of years ago, the Amazigh ruled all of North Africa, largely through different tribes. They would crisscross over the Sahara and throughout the southern basin of the Mediterranean for trade and travel. Over the centuries, they have been called by many names: The ancient Greeks called them ‘Libyans’; Romans called them variously “Numidians,” and ‘Africans’ while much of medieval Europe referred to this collection of tribes in North Africa as ‘Moors.’  …”Located in the deep south of Morocco, the Draa Valley stretches from the city of Ouarzazate into the Sahara Desert. The Draa Valley is a stunning oasis home to Berber villages, sumptuous Kasbahs, streaming sand dunes, lush green plains, snow-capped Atlas Mountains, endless stretches of palm trees and the Draa, Morocco’s largest river… The beauty of the Draa Valley is not its only geographical richness; the valley has thousands of years of history, evidenced by the ancient cave paintings and carvings found in the area. It was in the Draa Valley where archeologists found the statuette of Venus of Tan-Tan, one of the oldest prehistoric sculptures ever discovered. Moreover, the Draa Valley was once an important transit point on the trans-Saharan caravan trading routes, as well as an important trading center for Jewish, Arab, Berber and Christian civilizations.”

Venus of Tan Tan (back view) estimated to be 300,000 to 500,000 years old


Wikipedia has a another view of Tan Tan

Actually, both images purport to be the ‘front’. The greenish photo on the left comes from the only Wikipedia reference. ; the figure on the right, which is obviously different, comes from a defunct online public reference given as the academic magazine ’Current Archaeology’ of 2003; an edited/adapted text from the journal follows:

“The Tan-Tan figurine was discovered during an archaeological survey by Lutz Fiedler, state archaeologist of Hessen, Germany, in a river terrace deposit on the north bank of the River Draa a few kilometers south of the Moroccan town of Tan-Tan. The lowest sediments contain red sands and pebbles and yields stone tools of typical Early Acheulian character. This layer is followed by an approximately 12 metre (40 feet) sequence of alluvial gravels, sands, and finer fractions of varying compositions, the lower part of which contains a rich industry of the Middle Acheulian, free of specimens of Levallois technique. (The “Late Acheulean” is characterized by a new technique known as the Levallois (pronounced: “lev-uh-wah” or “leh-vah-wah”) emerged. It was distinct enough to warrant a separate technique name, but similar enough to traditional Acheulean tools such that a separate tool industry or culture was not assigned. The Levallois technique of the Acheulean Tool Industry/Culture dates from roughly 300 000 years ago to around 125 000 years ago . While Homo erectus made traditional Acheulean tools, the new Levallois technique is associated with the earliest Archaic Homo sapiens. Levallois tools were still hand axes; the difference is how they were manufactured: the Levallois technique represents the first attempt at mass production and standardization.) Text in italics from:
The figurine is from this horizon, around 1.5 m above its base or 15 m below the plain’s eroded surface.”

Corona the Crow, Part Three


Corona the Crow, Part One

Part Two


“There is wisdom in a raven’s head.” – Gaelic Proverb

Part Three of Corona the Crow aims to extend the mythic and occulted presence of crows and ravens in our lives with an emphasis on art and symbol as it informs this timeless affinity with the birds. We give these creatures the highest possible rank, above our own, in literal and tangible ways that unfold a story about ourselves in their world of shadows and light. To explain it, we’ll look at brain anatomy for the bird brain within and some of the oldest known portable figurative artwork ever found known as ‘Venus figurines’ that lay claim to an age of 300,000 years and older. The challenge will be to rediscover The Muse for yourself and become the curator of your own experience on a journey to ‘seership.’

   Along the way, I’m carrying the ‘code’ of numbers, presented in Part Two, with notation that looks like an equal(=56/11)sign in bold with a parenthetical number set. The purpose is to convey a greater complexity of communication for those cultivating “eyes to see,” needing only some scratch paper, a pencil, and a will(=56/11) to proceed. The numbers following select words are the simple sums of English gematria, the letter values of the alphabet (A=1, B=2,C=3…) that bring unseen correspondences to light describing patterns in added dimensions of space, time, and meaning—mind-science in basic math that gives structure to reality. The knowing of added dimensions, I believe, can bring harmony, counterpoint, and complexity of the irregular into one’s field of vision(=88) and attention. Some people call it mindfulness. I think of it as a fertile state of receptivity, filling the holey(=65/11) voids with spirited substance. That said, the quality and quantity of art and artifice filling our holey voids are acts of supreme religious significance, “but assume that religion ought not to be defined in any precise sense” adds Robert Graves. “…can any definition of the word religion be made that is practically relevant to a solution of the present political problems?…The dictionaries give its etymology as ‘doubtful’…[and an] alternative spelling relligio…can be formed only from the phrase rem legere, ‘to choose, or pick, the right thing’…” –pp477-478, The White Goddess.   Mindfulness(=136) we’re advised, is a precondition of choosing the right thing.

“The bird brain has been an enigma for years. We now know that avian neurobiology got off on the wrong foot in the late 1800s…[when] biologists were greatly influenced by Darwin’s theory of evolution and Aristotle’s Scala Naturae… We now know that the brain cells (neurons) in the avian pallium [cerebral cortex] are nearly identical to the neurons in the mammalian neocortex…   New studies show that birds have more brain cells (neurons) in their pallia than mammals do in theirs. The most intelligent bird groups, songbirds and parrots, have twice as many neurons as primate brains of the same mass. Corvids and large-brained parrots have even more. It is suggested that the large numbers of neurons concentrated in high densities in the pallium substantially contribute to the neural basis of avian intelligence… After a century of being misunderstood and kept in the dark, birds are finally being recognized for having brains with significant cognitive function that rivals or surpasses some primates.”

“In the past few decades, scientists have learned that the basis of everything they thought they knew about bird brains—that they were largely comprised of the most primitive and instinctual of brain structures—was wrong. Fully 75 percent of the brains of parrots, hummingbirds, and thousands of other species of songbirds is actually made up of a sophisticated information processing system that works much the same way as the locus of human higher-mindedness, the cerebral cortex.”

“All corvids have disproportionately large heads accommodating large brains that endow these birds with exceptional memory and intelligence…  Yes, dolphins and people have considerably larger brains relative to their body size than any bird, even the smartest corvid or parrot. But the relative brain size of crows and ravens is more similar to that of mammals, including most primates, than to other birds. Mentally, crows and ravens are more like flying monkeys than they are like other birds.”—p40,  In the Company of Crows and Ravens, by John M. Marzluff and Tony Angell.

The United States, at its revolutionary founding, has a distinction in time and place as a creation of scientific humanist thinkers. We might take issue with the occulted freemasonic messaging, but the markers adorn the labyrinths in plain sight.  I would suggest that Washington D.C. itself  was chosen and mapped in the shape of a human brain.

‘Cut’ from the DC capital blueprint at the diagonal northern Boundary line is the ‘cerebral cortex’ of a real brain which might suggest an ‘empty cup’ for a new nation to fill.

The ‘brain map’ of Washington appears in the first minute of a 3 hour documentary entitled ‘Riddles in Stone’[ ]–flagged, as I see it, by the actor who leaves his left hand on the map with his index finger pointing to the ‘downtown’ in three separate successive shots of the map scene. The importance of the indicator reveals the alignment of the blueprint with the inner structure of the brainstem. Later at minute 1:02 (62 minutes) of the same program, a ceiling panel in the Library of Congress is shown with a crow-inspired image, inscribed with a Latin phrase.

–inscription: Sub umbra alarum tuarum protégé nos— from [KJV]Psalm 17:8

                                   “Únder the shadow of Thy wings”

…[RSV] Psalms 17:8 (full text) –“Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me in the shadow of thy wings…”

The monumental Library of Congress, largest in the world for its time, was built in the 1890s when the elite of the US were steeped in Gilded Age prosperity and ‘Spiritualism’. The Library’s  interior was principally overseen by architect Edward Pearce Casey, son of the chief engineer, who replaced the original architects Smithmeyer & Pelz. Casey had more than 50 artists and sculptors under his nominal supervision. The doors opened November 1, 1897 during the early administration of President William McKinley, assassinated in office September 1901.

“On These Walls” inscriptions and quotations in the Library of Congress

On the landscape, the Library’s ‘Jefferson Building’ is situated ‘above’ the Capitol (=76/13) ‘bird, ’ which I’m proposing is not an owl but a White Goddess, Mother of All. “She” is the brain core (diencephalon) depicted by the greens and central structure of the bicameral meeting halls, topped with a ‘pineal’ dome. The normal orientation of the head of the bird is laying to the east. In this map below, I’ve upturned the crossbar of the national Mall(=38/11) from east/west (‘on the level’) to north/south.  The Library is part of the ‘hood’ that surrounds the Capitol.

A first glance of the map and a sitting ‘Venus’ together may not convince you that they are both representations of the brainstem. Venus figurines in particular demonstrate a great variety of styles, but none are depicting actual women and their likeness to real birds is doubtful. Among the 200 or so catalogued Venuses, some are headless, pinheaded, or have two heads, and some even have three. A few, I would argue, are not ‘Venuses’ at all. There are examples of the youngest being the crudest, and the oldest as most refined. They come from all parts of the world and date to all epochs of human habitation, the bulk of them dating within the historical Bronze Age because that’s where we look for the story of civilization. But the impression of Venuses in the aggregate, across time and space, is what most tells a story of the “sacred feminine” as the creator within whose curvy shape and bulbous glands reside at the top of the spinal column.

Brain diagrams can vary in style and aspect virtually as much as the figurines being compared and this is part of the mystery of the Venuses. Additionally, not all appear to be simulating human brains. Totem animal brains are just as likely describing variations in our ‘V’s. It would take expert analysis and access to the range of available artifacts to shape a proper hypothesis about the cultures that produced them—beyond the scope of this post. Nevertheless, a few examples suffice to raise the question.

Here’s a general shape comparison of brain anatomy.

The bird brain has special characteristics in the optic lobes appearing in the Venus of Lespugue

Is ‘she’ a lovely bird brain?  Estimated to be 25,000 years old: “It was discovered in 1922 in the Rideaux cave of Lespugue (Haute-Garonne) in the foothills of the Pyrenees by René de Saint-Périer (1877-1950). Approximately 6 inches (150 mm) tall, it is carved from tusk ivory, and was damaged during excavation…  Venus of Lespugue, if the reconstruction is sound, appears to display the most exaggerated female secondary sexual characteristics, especially the extremely large, pendulous breasts. According to textile expert Elizabeth Wayland Barber,[1] the statue displays the earliest representation found of spun thread, as the carving shows a skirt hanging from below the hips, made of twisted fibers, frayed at the end.”

Skirt Theory anyone?

The latest Venus Theory to make news, published in 2020, suggests that ‘feminine’ wisdom from the ancients encouraged packing on body fat in times of climate change(=101):

“A new theory about the iconic Venus figurines has suggested that the sculptures represent how climate change affected humans over 30,000 years ago… The Venus figurines are statuettes depicting obese women that, up until now, were thought to have been associated with fertility and beauty. A recent study published in “Obesity” has suggested instead that the figurines are totems of survival in extreme conditions…  Fat is a form of stored energy, said study author Dr. Richard Johnson…professor of medicine at the University of Colorado…and that fat can be lifesaving when food is not available…The researchers took waist-hip and waist-shoulder measurements of all known Venus figurines, which were found over hundreds of years across Europe and western Russia. After comparing the measurements to the geographical locations of where each sculpture was found, the team discovered that the more obese figurines were found further north near the glaciers. The further the figurines were from the glaciers, Johnson said, the less pronounced their body proportions were… “Our studies emphasize how climate change likely had profound effects on human culture and art, and that culture, through art, encoded desired behaviors for survival,” Johnson said… In the case of the Venus figurines, Johnson proposed that they were passed on from mothers to daughters for survival during the winter….”

CNN ‘style’ may have the scientific spin on turning the birds, but the most enduring theory about Venus figurines remains a notion that they are toys. Further trivialization like ‘skirt’ theory and ‘fat’ theory not only lead to wrong questions but rob our cultural endowments of an intellectual and spiritual heritage from far distant time. An example of academic resistance to broader horizons is the experience of archaeoastronomer Chantal Jegues-Wolkiewiez in her studies of Paleolithic cave art, recounted in the documentary Prehistoric Astronomers   On Summer Soltice eve, CJ-W observed, natural sunlight floods the ‘gallery’ of Lascaux cave illuminating the painted ‘zodiac’ as it does in other painted caves, revealing star and planet alignments in the form of animals with great accuracy. “I was stunned” said Chantal who has spent more than a decade roaming the Pyrenees and other mountainous terrain of Europe exploring the rock art. The Lascaux gallery is a younger creation at 15,000 years old than many of the most distinctive Venuses showing their brains.

Another Stone Age find from France in the Grotte du Pape(=38/11), or Cave of the Pope in the nearby Pyrenees village of Brassempouy, turned up one of the most remarkable Venuses: ‘Lady with a Hood’, estimated at 25,000 years old. The humanness of the Brassempouy Venus is a ‘no-brainer,’ right? The speculation runs to her race and headgear. Eight figurines were found in the cave with the Lady-head and one of them is offered as a probable sample of her body, but like all the others known and unknown, little is ever revealed to the public. No reconstruction with a body or comparison of figures is proffered.

Lady with a Hood, Brassempouy France, 25,000 yr-old carving made from mammoth tusk

Determined to be of Gravettian culture, it’s difficult to tell if the Lady from Brassempouy is Neanderthal or Cro-magnon. The deeper features visible in overhead lighting show qualities of both and coexistence in Europe for 20,000 years or more is now generally accepted.  

“The earliest known Cro-Magnon remains are between 35,000 and 45,000 years old,[1][2] based on radiometric dating. The oldest remains, from 43,000 – 45,000 years ago, were found in Italy[2] and Britain.[3] Other remains also show that Cro-Magnons reached the Russian Arctic about 40,000 years ago.[4][5]  Cro-Magnons had powerful bodies, which were usually heavy and solid with strong muscles. Unlike Neanderthals, which had slanted foreheads, the Cro-Magnons had straight foreheads, like modern humans. Their faces were short and wide with a large chin. Their brains were slightly larger than the average human’s is today.[6][7] The name ‘Cro-Magnon’ was created by Louis Lartet, who discovered the first Cro-Magnon skull in southwestern France in 1868. He called the place where he found the skull Abri de Cro-Magnon.[8] Abri means ‘rock shelter’ in French;[8] cro means ‘hole’ in the Occitan language;[9] and ‘Magnon’ was the name of the person who owned the land where Lartet found the skull.[10] Basically, Cro-Magnon means ‘rock shelter in a hole on Magnon’s land.’ This is why scientists now use the term ‘European early modern humans’ instead of ‘Cro-Magnons.’ In taxonomy, the term ‘Cro-Magnon’ means nothing…”

…but more to the point, “cro means ‘hole’ “…

hole (n.)

“Old English hol (adj.) “hollow, concave;” as a noun, “hollow place; cave; orifice; perforation,” from Proto-Germanic *hulan (source also of Old Saxon, Old Frisian, Old High German hol, Middle Dutch hool, Old Norse holr, German hohl “hollow,” Gothic us-hulon “to hollow out”), from PIE root *kel- (1) “to cover, conceal, save.”

*kel- (1)

“It forms all or part of; apocalypse; Calypso; calyx [chalice]; ceiling; cell; cellar; cellular; clandestine; cojones [courage, testicles]; coleoptera [‘shelled’ or shielded wing]; color; conceal; hall; hell; helm (n.2) “a helmet;” helmet; hold (n.2) “space in a ship below the lower deck;” hole; hollow; holster; housing (n.2) “ornamental covering;” hull (n.1) “seed covering;” kil-; kleptomania; occult; rathskeller [council chamber]; supercilious; Valhalla [Hall of the slain]; William… *kel- (2): Proto-Indo-European root meaning “to be prominent,” also “hill.” It forms all or part of: colonel; colonnade; colophon; column; culminate; culmination; excel; excellence; excellent; excelsior; hill; holm [river island]. It is the hypothetical source of/evidence for its existence is provided by: Sanskrit kutam “top, skull;” Latin collis “hill,” columna “projecting object,” cellere “raise;” Greek kolōnos “hill,” kolophōn “summit;” Lithuanian kalnas “mountain,” kalnelis “hill,” kelti “raise;” Old English hyll “hill,” Old Norse hallr “stone,” Gothic hallus “rock.” ”*kel-?ref=etymonline_crossreference#etymonline_v_52556


An Occitan internet translator today does not return the word hole for ‘cro’ but the word crown. Perhaps the meaning is buried in a more ancient use and confabulation of written and spoken language. The ‘oc’ in Occitan means ‘yes,’ according to language resources, altered to ‘aq,’or drawn from ‘aq’, describing the Pyrenees region by its more familiar name of Aquitaine (Occitania). ‘Yes’ for English speakers equates to assent, homophone to ascent, and certainly descriptive of the raised hills riddled with holey caves. ‘Aq’ means water in Latin (common to mountain caves as rock water and springs) but can otherwise mean ‘height’ or pinnacle and ‘farthest’ in Near Eastern use, cognate with ‘kel-2’. A thousand years ago, Occitan was the written language known as Languedoc (lenga d’oc), attributed to the troubadours emerging from the Middle Ages whose traditions brought the ‘Grail Romances’ to Europe, popularized in medieval stories of Arthur and the people of  l’aq. Occitan appears to be the source of the words ‘occipital’ (posterior skull bone) and ‘ram’ meaning branch or trunk of a tree. The word brain in Occitan– cervel or cerveau— is the same as modern French, cerveau, which we might recognize as a ‘crow’ word (from Part One: curb (corb),curve, crevice, service) with the understanding that ancient European manuscripts made indistinguishable marks for ‘b’ and ‘v’, a practice that can be noticed in differences of spelling between French and Spanish. Corb is Occitan for crow or raven without distinctions between them. Modern medical terminology affirms Occitanian cerveau and ‘cervico’ identifies the brain and neck, respectively.

The occipital bone and cruciform eminence

The occipital suture is called the lambdoid suture and the area where it meets the parietal bones at the sagittal sutures is called lambda, taken in name and symbol from the 11th Greek letter Lambda with gematria of 30. “Lambda is derived from the Phoenician Lamed . Lambda gave rise to the LatinL and the CyrillicEl (Л). The ancient grammarians and dramatists give evidence to the pronunciation as [laːbdaː] (λάβδα) in Classical Greek times.”

We are getting much closer now to the pagan and syncretic roots of mystic Christendom in northwestern Europe by assessing the symbolic meaning of Venus figurines in the context of brain and skull anatomy. A final ‘language’ association I’ll offer for this post is presented in the Britannica version of the Celtic/Welsh ‘Raven’ god Bran, who is much referenced by Robert Graves in The White Goddess (bold emphasis is mine):

Brân, (Celtic: “Raven”), gigantic Celtic deity who figured in the Mabinogion (a collection of medieval Welsh tales) as “crowned king over this Island” (i.e., Britain). Because of his stature, he and his court had to live in a tent, as no house had ever been built large enough to contain him. The most important aspect of Brân’s myth concerned his wondrous severed head. The ancient Celts worshiped the human head and believed it to be the seat of the soul, capable of independent life after the death of the body. They thought that it possessed powers of prophecy and was symbolic of fertility. They also believed that one of its functions was to provide entertainment in the otherworld.

   “According to the myth, Brân had been mortally wounded and requested his companions to cut off his head. He instructed them to take the head with them on their wanderings, telling them that it would not only provide them with marvelous entertainment and companionship but would also remain uncorrupted as long as they refrained from opening a certain forbidden door. If that door were opened, they would find themselves back in the real world and would remember all their sorrows. Eventually, they were to take the head and bury it on the White Mount in London. All happened as Brân had prophesied, and his companions passed 80 joyous and delightful years. The head was buried in London, where it kept away all invaders from Britain until it was finally unearthed. Brân is also the hero of The Voyage of Brân (see imram).”

 *Note that the ‘little hat’ accent (called a circumflex) is used with the ‘a’ in Bran meaning the pronunciation has been altered from its original sound (or spelling) –would the original sound be the long ‘a’ sound in Raven, making ‘Bran’ a homophone to the word brain?

“…At one time, brain was pronounced with g in the middle (its modern trace is i in -ai; German has Bregen), a circumstance that justified the comparison Bregen ~ brain ~ bregma. The most ancient form of brain must have sounded approximately like bragna. And this is also how bran allegedly sounded millennia ago. Engl. bran is a borrowed word, though its source remains a matter of debate…”

On the far west peninsula of Cornwall (Land’s End) stands the mound of Bran’s Hill, Caer Bran, dated as a hill fort of the late Bronze Age (c.2500-2000 BC). The nearest village by walking trail is called Brane, perhaps confirming and preserving the pronunciation of Bran’s name.

The settlement of Brane is known for the nearby constructions of a uniquely small burial mound and a larger Neolithic stone-lined tunnel called a fogou, of which only a dozen in Europe have reportedly been found:
“Fogous’ central locations inside settlements and the work that evidently went into constructing them indicates their importance to the community, but their original purpose is no longer known.” . Mounds from the region, however, offer some insight into these artificial caves as further renderings on the landscape of depicted brains. The Halliggye Fogou chamber, below left, is named ‘Holy’ fogou, clarifying its purpose as sacred. The image on the right is a tabletop model of the Celli Dhu mound (‘bryn’(=59=’crow’), cognate with ‘bran’) in Wales, cutaway to show the internal passage design. Notice in the top half of the model that the central green mound does not fill the outer rock border, suggesting a square pyramid-like base. ;

More than the mounds, I conjecture, the Venus or goddess figurines give us some indication of the great antiquity and ubiquity of  brain worship as the light of the mind.

Robert Graves writes of Bran(=35/8): “The Bran cult seems also to have imported from the Aegean. There are remarkable resemblances between him and the Pelasgian hero Aesculapius who, like the chieftain Coronus (‘crow’) killed by Hercules, was a king of the Thessalian crow-totem tribe of Lapiths. Aesculapius [Asklepius] was a Crow on both sides of the family: his mother was Coronis (‘crow’), probably a title of the Goddess Athene to whom the crow was sacred. Tatian, the Church Father, in his Address to the Greeks, suggests a mother and son relationhip between Athene and Aesculapius… Aesculapius’s father was Apollo whose famous shrine of Tempe stood in Lapith territory and to whom the crow was also sacred; and Apollo is described as the father of another Coronus, King of Sicyon in Sicily. The legend of Aesculapius is that after a life devoted to healing, he raised Glaucus, son of Sisyphus the Corinthian, from the dead, and was burned to cinders by Zeus in a fit of jealousy…Bran was likewise destroyed by his jealous enemy Evnissyen, a comrade of Matholwch King of Ireland to whom he had given a magical cauldron for raising dead soldiers to life…  Apollo was not at that time a Sun-god, but an Underworld oracular hero.” –pp52-53, The White Goddess.

“Athena[b] or Athene,[c] [with two ‘e’s=53/8] often given the epithet Pallas,[d] is an ancient Greek goddess associated with wisdom, warfare, and handicraft[1] who was later syncretized with the Roman goddess Minerva… In Greek mythology, Athena was believed to have been born from the forehead of her father Zeus… Since the Renaissance, Athena has become an international symbol of wisdom, the arts, and classical learning. Western artists and allegorists have often used Athena as a symbol of freedom and democracy.” .  “The most ancient talismanic effigies of Athena”, Ruck and Staples report, “were magical found objects, faceless pillars of Earth in the old manner, before the Goddess was anthropomorphized and given form through the intervention of human intellectual meddling… The goddess Athena was worshipped on the Acropolis of Athens under many names and cults, the most illustrious of which was of the Athena Poliás, “protectress of the city”. The cult image of the Poliás was a wooden effigy, often referred to as the “xóanon diipetés” (the “carving that fell from heaven”)… Its presence was last mentioned by the Church Father Tertullian who described it derisively as nothing but “a rough stake, a shapeless piece of wood“.[19] Earlier descriptions of the statue have not survived. ”

The Neolithic ivory Venus from ‘Malta’, first on the left, looks like a probable ‘rough stake‘ Athena

More of the Malta type from the Upper Paleolithic period (approx..45,000-15,000 BCE) come from a Siberian site called Mal’ta-Buret, named for two locations near Lake Baikal on an interconnected river system. The Siberian Malta venuses below are made from mammoth tusk and reindeer antler, dating to about 18,000 years BP.

What seems to distinguish  ‘Malta’ from other paleolithic venus figurines is the human qualities of heads with hair or hoods, faces and arms. Similar to the refined and older Lady with a Hood from Brassempouy, these human-headed figures may be depicting the diencephalon which is flanked by the curving fornix/hippocampus (‘arms’) and covered by the corpus callosum. “The corpus callosum is only found in placental mammals…” .

 Our ‘bird ladies’, by contrast, appear to be shaped by bird brain gross anatomy. The oldest central European venus unearthed to date is approx. 42,000 years old, found in the Jura Mountain range of southern Germany (Swabia) at the Hohle Fels (‘hollow rock’) cave along with a flute– to my eyes, ‘she’ is a bird brain.

The Human Mind

Athene, favorite daughter of Zeus, is known for wearing a large helmet of invisibility: “In classical mythology, the Cap of Invisibility (Ἅϊδος κυνέη (H)aïdos kyneē in Greek, lit. dog-skin of Hades) is a helmet or cap that can turn the wearer invisible,[1] also known as the Cap of Hades or Helm of Hades.[2] Wearers of the cap in Greek myths include Athena, the goddess of wisdom, the messenger god Hermes, and the hero Perseus. Those wearing the Cap become invisible to other supernatural entities, akin to a cloud of mist sometimes used to remain undetectable…”

 Athene’s cap bears a striking comparison to the brain’s corpus callosum. 

Athene’s cap is equated to the Veil of Isis, being the same White Goddess originating in Greece: “The first mention of the veil of Isis appears in On Isis and Osiris, a philosophical interpretation of ancient Egyptian religion by Plutarch, a Greek writer in the late first and early second centuries CE. Plutarch wrote of a seated statue of a goddess in the Egyptian city of Sais that bore the inscription “I am all that has been and is and shall be; and no mortal has ever lifted my mantle.” Plutarch identified the goddess as “Athena, whom [the Egyptians] consider to be Isis.” According to Graves, “Queen Isis, daughter of King Inachus, [came] from Greece to Egypt… Inachus, a river-god and legendary king of Argos, was the father both of the Goddess Io, who became Isis when she reached Egypt, and of the hero Phoroneus, founder of the Pelasgian [pre-Greek] race, who has been already identified with the God Bran, alias Cronos.” –p233, The White Goddess. One can see that the totem bird on Athene’s Corinthian coin is not an owl, but more resembles a crow.

Wikipedia’s citation for ‘Veil of Isis’ is inaccurate, in my opinion, but worth the pictures. I’ve added more conceptually correct words in brackets : “The veil of Isis is a metaphor [depiction] and allegorical artistic motif in which nature [the brain] is personified as the goddess Isis covered by a veil or mantle, representing the inaccessibility of nature’s [the mind’s] secrets. It is often combined with a related motif, in which nature [the brain] is portrayed as a goddess with multiple breasts who represents Isis, Artemis [=Athene] or a combination of both.”

Wikipedia’s picture references for Veil of Isis: On the left is a statue given to Herbert Hoover in 1922 and later installed at his Iowa birthplace: “Visitors to the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library-Museum and the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site who have made the short walk to the Birthplace Cottage will have encountered the seven and a half foot tall statue of Isis…[that] was a gift to Herbert Hoover from the Belgian people in gratitude for his work directing the Commission for Relief in Belgium during World War I. The statue was originally located on the campus of Stanford University in California until it was moved to West Branch in 1939…” ; Hoover, raised as a Quaker, became a Californian to attend the new Stanford University, graduating with the first student class. At some point during his early years in government service, he became a Bohemian Grove habitue maintaining his status and nickname of ‘chief’ with the gathered subdivision called Cave Man Camp’. On the right (Animal Anatomy) the goddess image is a distinctively human brainstem with its thalamus ‘head’ being exposed under the corpus callosum veil. Her multiple breasts correspond to the colliculi which protrude beneath the pineal gland (shown red, below in posterior view) which this engraving depicts as a ‘sun’– a madonna-and-child motif in many of the Bronze Age figurines, including statues of Isis and Horus.

The Bird’s Eye

A small sampling of three venuses (below) from pre-dynastic Egypt—the First Dynasty is dated to 3100BC– is suggestive of eyesight within the brain. The first bird-headed goddess with upturned arms evokes the Eye-of-Horus in addition to the hippocampus ; the other two bearing humanoid features, have small wrapped arms crossing the midsection—these arms suggest the optic tract that criss-crosses the anterior brainstem and wrap around the midbrain toward the (colliculi) front of the goddess lying posterior on the brainstem (facing the occipital visual cortex).

…”Birds can see ultraviolet (UV) light because, unlike humans, their lenses and other ocular media transmit UV, and they possess a class of photoreceptor which is maximally sensitive to violet or UV light, depending on the species. Birds have a tetrachromatic color space, as compared to the trichromacy of humans…”

“Bird brains are not entirely like our brains… We know that the forebrain is important to learning and memory because it is largest in birds that excel in learning tests… Another portion of the forebrain known as the hippocampus may be most important in spatial memory. In many corvids…the hippocampus is huge. It may even expand during the autumn when caching [food] is common… Large forebrains do more than aid with spatial memory. They also allow corvids to discriminate finely among similar objects, live in rapidly changing environments, and enhance their social lives… Common Ravens show an ability to imagine an outcome… If a caching Common Raven is being watched, it will try to fake-out the would-be cache-robber with false probes…or simply sneaking out of sight. Apes are also flexible [in] forming alliances or deceiving to achieve a desired outcome…where natural selection favors individuals that can learn, remember, and adjust.” –pp42-47, In the Company of Crows and Ravens, 2005, Marzluff and Angell

Will we learn from the birds?

[2017] “Current interpretations of hippocampal memory function are blind to the fact that viewing behaviors are pervasive and complicate the relationships among perception, behavior, memory, and brain activity… This new perspective on hippocampal function harmonizes with the fact that memory formation and exploratory viewing are tightly intertwined.”

Eye of Horus: symbols of the Science of Light

“The wavelength of light, which is related to frequency and energy, determines the perceived color… The edges of the visible light spectrum blend into the ultraviolet and infrared levels of radiation… The order of wavelengths can be remembered by the mnemonic “Roy G Biv” for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo (the blue/violet border), and violet… The human eye and brain can distinguish many more colors than those of the spectrum. Purple and magenta are the brain’s way of bridging the gap between red and violet… Among humans, there is variation between how far into red and violet the eye can see. Most animals that can see ultraviolet can’t see infrared…”  “A black light gives off highly energetic ultraviolet light. You can’t see this part of the spectrum, which is how “black” lights got their name. Fluorescent substances absorb the ultraviolet light and then re-emit it almost instantaneously. Some energy gets lost in the process, so the emitted light has a longer wavelength than the absorbed radiation, which makes this light visible and causes the material to appear to glow. Fluorescent molecules tend to have rigid structures and delocalized electrons.  [For example] The bitter flavoring of tonic water is due to the presence of quinine, which glows blue-white when placed under a black light… Vitamin A and the B vitamins thiamine, niacin, and riboflavin are strongly fluorescent… Chlorophyll makes plants green, but it also fluoresces a blood red color… Fluorescent rocks include fluorite, calcite, gypsum, ruby, talc, opal, agate, quartz, and amber… Many body fluids contain fluorescent molecules… Some of the proteins within a jellyfish are intensely fluorescent…”

“Ultraviolet light (UV), which ranges from 10 to 400 nanometers, is not detectable to the human eye. Yet, new research from the University of Georgia found that people can see ultraviolet light, and the health implications may be significant. In a [2017] study recently published in PLOS One, co-authors Billy R. Hammond and Lisa Renzi-Hammond show that 100 percent of the participants, all young adults, were able to detect an isolated UV peak at 315 nm. ‘Every textbook that is written on vision, optometry, ophthalmology, introduction to psychology, sensation and perception all say the same thing, that humans cannot see ultraviolet light. We have now shown otherwise,’ said Renzi-Hammond.” —this ‘public health’ report about seeing UV is couching the implications of seeing UV in the negative to eye health, but I entreat you to watch and listen to the video linked below, “Immortality and Time Travel” and the value of UV energy to your mind’s eye.

“Our lenses typically block out UV, but people who have lost their lenses to surgeries or accidents can perceive UV as whitish blue. This happened to the painter Claude Monet, who lost his left lens at the age of 82. He began seeing the UV light that reflects off water lilies, and started painting them as whitish blue instead of white. Monet aside, most people can’t see UV, which probably explains why scientists were so eager to believe that the ability was rare. In fact, the opposite is true. Most animals that can see color can see UV. It’s the norm… For us, UV feels enigmatic and intoxicating. It’s an invisible hue lying just on the edge of our vision—a perceptual void that our imaginations are keen to fill. Scientists have often attributed special or secret significance to it, treating it as a channel for covert communication… They might eventually realize that it is just another color, special mainly in its absence from their vision. And they might wonder what it would be like to add it to their Umwelt, bolstering their three dimensions of color with a fourth.

Immortality and Time Travel; Drs Ana Maria Mihalcea and Keryn Johnson

Time(=47/11), conventionally, is the Fourth Dimension(=190). In Corona the Crow part two, I picked up the theme of Time with a decoding of the movie Back to the Future and its correspondence to the number ’19,’  a calendar-associated number, and the variety of ‘ones’ and ‘nines’ in conjunction with signal events.  But Time, dissociated from calendars, is a broader concept in physics that incorporates quantum functions, specifically in optical devices known as “time crystals.”  The Magenta messaging as a fourth dimension color code seems to be the ‘secret communication’ taking place across the digital media spectrum, happening before our very eyes, elaborated on by the phenomenal researcher Stephers in her brilliantly sequenced thesis “World Building, One Magenta Beacon at a Time”:

A discussion of time crystals and quantum dots in the manifest technology disseminating in Covid-19 injection fluid is a not-to-miss video interview by Maria Zeee and her guests Karen Kingston and Dr. Ana Maria Mihalcea. I highly recommend pausing to read the patents presented by Karen K. Vaxxed and unvaxxed alike display  the technology in their blood samples.

[patent excerpt, minute34, 35]  “Semiconductor nanocrystals (also known as quantum dot particles) whose radii are smaller than the bulk exciton Bohr radius constitute a class of materials intermediate between molecular and bulk forms of matter. Quantum confinement of both the electron and hole in all three dimensions leads to an increase in the effective band gap of the material with decreasing crystallite size. Consequently, both the optical absorption and emission of [the] semiconductor nanocrystals shift to the blue (higher energies) as the size of the nanocrystal gets smaller…   The terms ‘semiconductor nanocrystal,’ ‘quantum dot’ and ‘Qdot nanocrystal’ are used interchangeably herein to refer to semiconductor nanoparticles composed of an inorganic crystalline material that is luminescent (i.e. they are capable of emitting electromagnetic radiation upon excitation) and include an inner core of one or more first semiconductor materials that is optionally contained within an overcoating or ‘shell’ of a second semiconductor  material…” [patent excerpt minute 38:56–] “By ‘luminescence’ is meant the process of emitting electromagnetic radiation (light) from an object. Luminescence results when a system undergoes a transition from an excited state to a lower energy state with a corresponding release of energy in the form of a photon. These energy states can be electronic, vibrational, rotational, or any combination thereof… The external source of energy can be of a variety of types including chemical, thermal, electrical, magnetic, electromagnetic, and physical [mechanical], or any other type of energy source capable of causing a system to be excited into a state higher in energy than the ground state… The energy of the photons emitted during luminescence can be in a range from low-energy microwave radiation to high-energy x-ray radiation. Typically luminescence refers to photons in the range from UV to IR radiation. [oo64] The nanoparticles of the invention may also be metallic. Such particles are useful, for example, in surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) which employs nanometer-sized particles onto which Raman active moieties (e.g. a dye or pigment…) are adsorbed or attached…”

Corona the Crow, Part Two

Corona the Crow, Part One

Greek letter Psi — footprint of a crow?

“Let your mind wander a bit now and consider our language, art, culture, and religion. They have all been influenced over the ages by our interactions with crows. Likewise, crows have benefited enormously by associating with people. We have reduced many of their natural predators and issued royal, political, and religious edicts that have forbidden the killing of some crows… we, by choice or circumstance, provide living space and food for crows in exchange for intellectual, emotional, and aesthetic stimulation… Our suggestion that a portion of the relationship represents a novel evolutionary force, one we term cultural co-evolution, is a new hypothesis we introduce…and explore…   Our fascination with crows runs deep… We are convinced that crows and people share a long and storied history… Our art, religion, literature, language, and music all draw on crows for inspiration. Life without such inspiration would be less creative, less imaginative, and less mysterious… we hope you agree.” –Preface, In the Company of Crows and Ravens, 2005, John M. Marzluff and Tony Angell.

Welcome to part two.

Much of what will be offered in this segment is contemporary and timeless—hidden, perhaps, in symbols and synchronicities –another fine crow word for this piece– evoking Time, Space, waves, mirrors, and metaphysics. Some of the material comes from ‘synchromystics,’ an ad hoc community of decoders who see ‘Easter Eggs’ of planning and deliberation in our media, with whom I often agree. There is “a dark poetry” in “twilight language” as Michael Hoffman writes, “layered over layers” in need of air and light—read on for examples. But my aim is simple and the message is plain: to get the birds-eye view. Any crow can do it.


“ ‘Most people consider life a battle, but it is not a battle, it is a game. It is a game, however, which cannot be played successfully without the knowledge of spiritual law, and the Old and New Testaments gave the rules of the game with wonderful clearness. Jesus Christ taught that it was a great game of Giving and Receiving. ‘Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.’ This means that whatever man sends out in word or deed will return to him; what he gives, he will receive. If he gives hate, he will receive hate; if he gives love, he will receive love; if he gives criticism, he will receive criticism; if he lies he will be lied to; if he cheats he will be cheated. We are taught also that the imaging faculty plays a leading part in the game of life. ‘Keep thy heart (or imagination) with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23) This means that what man images, sooner or later externalizes in his affairs. I know of a man who feared a certain disease. It was a very rare disease and difficult to get, but he pictured it continually and read about it until it manifested in his body, and he died, the victim of distorted imagination.’ “

The quote above, doubly quoted, comes from a recent newsletter by Sofia Smallstorm, sharing the timeless Bible wisdom of New Thought writer Florence Scovel Shinn who penned a 1925 book called The Game of Life and How to Play It. The thematic substance of Sofia’s newsletter was inspired, she says, by Dr. Joe Dispenza who healed a profoundly debilitating spinal injury he received in the 1980s  and recounted during an interview for London Real. Dr. Joe, then 23 years old, rejected the surgical treatments which would have permanently distorted the viable future he hoped for, instead turning within to discipline his imagination to rebuild his broken back.  Joe wants you to know that you will be biologically changed by the clarity and persistence of new thinking.

Sofia writes, “Note that Ms. Shinn calls [it] ‘distorted imagination.’ [Florence] continues: ‘So we see, to play successfully the game of life, we must train the imaging faculty… The imagination has been called ‘The Scissors of the Mind,’ and it is ever cutting, day by day, the pictures man sees there, and sooner or later he meets his own creations in his outer world. To train the imagination successfully, man must understand the workings of his mind… There is always plenty on man’s pathway, but it can only be brought into manifestation through desire, faith or the spoken word. Jesus Christ brought out clearly that man must make the first move: ‘Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.’ (Matthew 7:7).’ ”

“Florence Scovel Shinn (September 24, 1871 in Camden, New Jersey – October 17, 1940) was an American artist and book illustrator who became a New Thought spiritual teacher and metaphysical writer in her middle years.[1][2] In New Thought circles, Shinn is best known for her first book, The Game of Life and How to Play It (1925). She expressed her philosophy as: The invisible forces are ever working for man who is always “pulling the strings” himself, though he does not know it. Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract. —The Game of Life, Florence Scovel Shinn”

Let me add to this dual lesson to reject distortion and engage imagination, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear” (Matthew 11:15, Matthew 13:9) “For to him who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away… because seeing they do not see and hearing they do not hear nor do they understand.” (Matthew 13: 12-13)…”For this people’s heart has grown dull and their ears are heavy of hearing and their eyes they have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart…(Matthew 13:15).


The sync-ing ship sails. From here I’m bringing along an ancient practice of layering number values to letters and words (gematria), proffering simple and symbolic interpretations with signs, numerology, anagrams, and to the best that I can, correspondences and contexts that apply. There will always be more and much will be missed and skipped, but the point is to effectively present a template and scope of a pattern. I believe if we choose to live in freedom outside the distorted reality game of control, the discipline is useful and timely– a prelude to truth, and not truth itself but a mind science of picture-making.

 On September 8, 2022  the death of Queen Elizabeth II was synchromystically brought to my attention (by others) as occurring exactly 911 days from the WHO declaration of pandemic Covid-19 on March 11, 2020.  Yes, count them! I learned that Elizabeth’s maternal grandmother was born on a 9-11: Cecilia Nina Cavendish-Bentinck (m. Bowes-Lyon), born September 11, 1862. Cecilia married Claude Bowes-Lyon of the Scottish Peerage on July 16, 1881 when she was 19. Her birthday adds to 100 [9+11+18+62=100] which might signal her birth and marriage [100+19] as a ‘divine child’ and mother in the mixing of gematria and Tarot. The 19th ‘trump’ in Tarot is The Sun. Cecilia’s daughter Elizabeth, married to King George VI, was to carry the title of Queen Mother.,_Countess_of_Strathmore_and_Kinghorne ;

“In the Christian literature, the number 100 appears as symbol of the celestial beatitude… By using…table A=1, B=2, [..Z=26, English/French ordinal], we find that in French, ‘Verbe de Dieu’ (Word of God) gives 100. The numerical value of Hebrew word EMLKE meaning coronation, and MNI meaning god or divinity of the destiny, gives each [word] 100.”


From the news, we learned that QEII died at 15:10 hours BST, 910 minutes into the day of the 8th, taken from Balmoral on 9-11, transferred again to Westminster on  9-14 to lay in state 5 days until her funeral on September 19, 11 days after her death.

The name Elizabeth in English Ordinal gematria is 88.  We can make an equation from the four dated days above, (9-8, 9-11, 9-14, 9-19) adding base numbers (17+20+23+28)=88, and you also have the total number of mapped and named constellations visible from the Earth. The word Heaven in gematria is 55 –add a spatial number for London, her birthplace –33, for its 32 burroughs plus The City, and you have 88 again as a spatial representation of her ceremonial life & death.

–32, incidentally, is the value of the acronym UK, aka United (=73) plus Kingdom (=73), or 146/11.

Elizabeth Windsor was born in Mayfair (Westminster) London on April 21, 1926. [4+21+19+26=70]. April 21st is the 111th day of the year (non-leap year). Her death on 9-8-2022, the 251st day of the year, adds to 59 [9+8+20+22=59] Subtract the number of  ‘death’ (59) from ‘birth’ (70) with a remainder of 11.  Add the birth #day of the year, 111, to the death #day, 251 (=362) and reduce by adding 3+6+2= 11. The word Mayfair in gematria is 73; the word Goddess is 73; “Mayfair Goddess” 73+73=146, 1+4+6=11, a match with United Kingdom. Her death date #59 is also a match for the word Crow.

“The ancient Romans were certain of the day Rome was founded: April 21, the day of the festival sacred to Pales, goddess of shepherds…”  Gematria for Rome is 51, and for London 74 –added, 51+74=125, 1+2+5=8. The name Pales is 53, 5+3= 8. The word Queen is 62, 6+2=8.  The name Magdalene is 62/=8 The Roman Church adopted September 8 as the birthday of the Virgin Mary, but as many people believe, the Church is actually identifying Mary Magdalene and denying her queenship as the Holy Grail, bearer of the House of David bloodline. I’ll get into Grail Bloodline complexities more as we go along, but for now there is no shortage of ‘9’s and ‘1’s on the paternal side of Elizabeth’s family either.

Her father’s father, George V, grandson of Queen Victoria (d 1901), was born June 3, 1865 [6+3(=9) plus 18(=9)+65(=11), or 9+9+11=29=2+9=11, or simply add 6+3+18+65=92 and reduce 9+2=11. George V ascended to the throne in 1910. Charles Windsor-Mountbatten was born November 14, 1948, or 11+14+19+48=92, or 9+2=11, matching his great-grandfather George V’s birthday. Charles III, ascending on his mother’s death, clocked the first minute of his reign as the 911th of September 8, 2022 [9+8+20+22=59=5+9=14] –the date of QEII’s death—14– matches the day number of her son’s birth—14—at which time he was 73 years old. Number 14 also matches the death date of his mother’s grandmother, Cecilia Nina (whose name equals 88 like her two Elizabeths) with a death date of June 23, 1938 (6+23+19+38=86=8+6=14).  The word Crown equals 73, matching Charles’s age on ascent.

In the classic modern Tarot card deck, 14 is called “Temperance” or “The Angel of Time” and in the Crowley/Thoth deck it is called ‘Art’:

“In many other Tarot Decks, as in the Rider-Waite-Smith, key 14 is called Temperance, which implies the heating and cooling of forged steel to make a keen, flexible blade or the slow cooling down process of tempering glass. And in a way, this process is the Thoth Deck-Key 14- Art Card’s 24th Path of Samekh (meaning -Prop), as it is attributed to the restriction and control over the forces of existence…  On this very difficult Path of solution, the very enormity of the Great Work ( As above, so below) will be experienced. On this path of Samekh, the initiate may experience going through a long dark tunnel, believing ( not knowing) there is Light at the end of it. This Path of Samekh, The Art card, has been called the Path of “the dark night of the Soul”, verifying that this is a Path of trial, tempering and temptation… All in all, the Art Card key 14, is the consummation of the Divine Marriage, depicted on the Lovers card Key 6, here the Orgasm of Spirit has been reached. There is a perfect interchange of forces, as the Red Lion has become white, and the White lion has become Red. The Art card shows Water being poured on Fire, and Fire is merged with Water, all within the purified physical vehicle, shown as the Golden Cauldron, i.e. the Master’s body. We know the Golden Cistern or Cauldron is the Human body because of the sigil of the Raven and the Skull known as Kaput and/ death. Only the body dies, as the Spirit is immortal. Get and read the Text Book, The Qabalistic Tarot by Robert Wang and the Book of Thoth by Aliester Crowley for further explanation of this coded process.”

Twin crystals of staurolite in a matrix of schist; the word Staurolite equals 140

The “mirror” of number 14, of course, is 41 which equates to our own September 11, 2001 (9+11+20+1=41) and the acronym of our country USA (=41). How’s that for a turn of the Royal Screw?

“Royal Screw” in English Ordinal gematria is 139, 1+3+9=13, the Death card in current-use Tarot. All this Holy Bloodline business, to which I’ll return later, is about a Royal Screw, but for now, I’ll pass on any more Royals and stick with the 9, 1, 19 and 911 encoding that passed many of us by.  It has everything to do with my own introduction to synchromysticism, which began with a 13-minute video called “Back to the Future Predicts 9/11”.  I agree with the prediction for many reasons and codes that are in the movie Back to the Future but are not in this video. Watch it here, and I’ll follow up with a lot more extra material:

The first coded 911 image in this ‘Apophenia’ Films video ( Apophenia equals 13) is the Twin Pines Mall clock showing the digital time of 116.  The name Rothschild equals 116 –keep that in mind as Apophenia’s first given—and I’ll be back shortly with more decoding of Back to the Future.

Apophenia (=13) is paying homage to ‘BttF’ director Robert Zemeckis “in kind” (kindred) by presenting a coded exposition with a play time of 12:41 minutes (12+41=53=5+3=8)—it ends on an eight, which written as a word has the gematria value of 49, reduced once to 13 (4+9=13);

Tarot 13 – Death

I invite you to read about Tarot 13 from the same source as the image: ; my practical ‘see and say’ take on Death is that it presents bare bonesApophenia (=13) is not trying to flesh things out, but like bones, planting a foundation that will last and carry the message of itself far into the future.  Gematria for thirteen is 99.

12:41converted to seconds gives 761 (7+6+1=14) –Art.

The ‘ BttF Predicts 9/11’ coding gets interesting at minute 4:09 (=13) by highlighting the Capstone Eye; gematria for Eye is 35 (3+5=8), a mirror to 53, the time of the video –Eye time, where the eye is an image of itself, not a written word, following The Third. Who is The Third –Charles? The Eye, of course, is the giant wheel in London near Westminster Bridge. Our symbol from Back to the Future is a Capstone with gematria of 93; gematria for Charles is 66 (93+66=159=1+5+9=15)– the next trump, Tarot 15 is the Devil. Minute 4:09 is 249 seconds (2+4+9=15)

…Hmm. I’m feeling the turn of the Royal Screw here… 66-Charles’s father, Prince Philip (65+70=135=1+3+5=9) died at age 99 and his mother at 96 (99+96=195=1+9+5=15). The Mountbatten family acquired their English-sounding name three days before the ‘Windsors’ chose their royal name on  7-17-17 (7+17+19+17=60). Gematria for Windsor is 102 (60+102=162=1+6+2=9).

The next interesting moment from Apophenia is minute 4:18 ( 4+18=22, or 4+1+8=13) where director Zemeckis appears at 258 seconds (2+5+8=15). Gematria for Zemeckis is 91. If you’ve watched this video then you know that Apophenia is aiming for a Stargate presented at minute 8:41 (8+4+1=13) . Gematria for Stargate is 91, and when the narration says it, the image is a human eye.

Minute 4:31 (4+31=35=4+3+1=8), at 271 seconds (2+7+1=10=1), Apophenia shows the digital dashboard clock of the DeLorean Time machine: OCT 21 2015 (10 +21+20+15=66)—however ‘10’ is an ambiguous value for OCT which means ‘8’ so I’ll use instead the gematria value for O-C-T, precisely as shown, at 38 (38+21+20+15=94=9+4=13= 1+3=4)—the ‘hour’ is ‘4’. Tarot 4 is the Emperor, “the Heavenly Human” (66, Charles again?). In the next moments at minute 4:52 (4+5+2=11) we see the birds-eye view poster of Zemeckis’s 2015 true-story movie The Walk chronicling Philippe Petit’s highwire walk between the WTC towers on Aug 7, 1974 (8+7+19+74=108=1+0+8=9). Gematria for WTC is 46 (4+6=10=1) shown at 292 seconds(=13) but foreshadowed 21 seconds earlier by the ‘dashboard’. (‘Philip the Little’– remind you of ‘Prince Philip’ and the little prince?) Philippe Petit was born on August 13, 1949. The slightly older Charles was born November 14, 1948 and there is exactly 9 months and 29 days (2+9=11) between them.

Minute 4:56 (4+56=60, 4+5+6=15) we hear narration “in theaters worldwide” and see the face of actor Joseph Gordon Levitt who played Philippe Petit in Zemeckis’s movie The Walk. Gematria for Levitt is 88. His full name is 225 (2+2+5=9). Philippe (=91) matches Stargate and Zemeckis;  Petit (=70) matches QEII’s birthday on 4-21-1926 (4+21+19+26=70) and Levitt matches her name Elizabeth (=88).  70 also matches Philip, prince consort who was born on June 10, 1921 (6+10+19+21=56=5+6=11) and died on April 9, 2021 (4+9+20+21=54=5+4=9). 11 and 9 for Philip. The minute counter for this screen (4+56=60) matches the date that the Windsor name was chosen (7+17+19+17=60).  The character of Marty McFly imposed on Petit as another film character has gematria value of 59 (=McFly), matching the death date of QEII on September 8, 2022.   Is Apophenia Films (=144 =9)  giving us the royal treatment? I’ll keep going to try and find out…


In the meanwhile….

….don’t let this happen to you.  It’s called ‘Hamster Wheel Fail.’ If you’re going to get off, get all the way off.  


From the reel 1985 Back to the Future itself, Zemeckis offer a 1-second sight that I think is the  sum of all parts, and it happens at precisely 19 minutes when the Time machine appears.

The emergence of the DeLorean time machine at 19:00 minutes and zero seconds with the Fox lab on its left is a profound image. Did you learn how to type in school with the phrase: “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dogs”? It’s a ‘pangram’ using every letter of the English alphabet, representing TIME as well as language in the oldest known traditions of British history (exposited by Robert Graves in The White Goddess, 1946, with the ‘Battle of the Trees’ bardic poem).  The ‘quick brown fox’ also encodes the substance of the next 11-minutes of the movie scene (the Runway 30 scene I call it), with ‘Brown’ the scientist, ‘Fox’ the boy who becomes ‘quickened’, and a dog (plus dog-soldier terrorists who are fighting to get their stolen plutonium back). The time machine runs on atomic fuel.

Going back to 1955 gives us a piece of bold signage that this deal is atomic. The TOWN movie marquee is playing The Atomic Kid, released in 1954 (1+9+5+4=19), which becomes Marty’s return portal to the future.


The opening image from the movie is an introduction screen: Universal. The word Universal has gematria of 121 and appears in the 7th second. In the next second (8) ‘An MCA Company’ appears—MCA gematria is 17 (=8). Implied but not shown here is Pictures –Universal PicturesPictures is 111.

The first given picture from Back to the Future is an Alarm Clock face—Alarm=45(=9) and Clock=44(=8)—(9+8=17), like MCA which assigned itself an ’88’ originally founded by an ophthalmologist (EYE-guy) named Jules Stein from Chicago. Eventually MCA built its own building dubbed “The Black Tower” for the smoked-glass façade of its 36-story monolith.  

 The ‘M’ in MCA is for music, and in this first given it’s the sound of Tick Tock (=92=11).

The video bar somewhat obscures the lower clock face, shown precisely at 38 (=11) seconds with the numbers 11121 in its arch showing what I suggest is Universal Pictures in reverse (time going back) and overlaid like a ‘magic circle’ implying an endless stream of 11121112111…etc. like a ticking clock. The second thing to pull from this picture is the ‘horizon line’ of the inset meter in the top clock. 11121 is above the horizon, or in your face. The TIME is 7:53 and you will see it again in the ‘pan’ on all the clocks. (Clock=44)

Let’s talk about all the clocks, not just in this movie but everywhere.

A fruitful insight for me came out of a discussion thread called ‘Watch’ (thanks K.L.!) who noticed that the new Apple Watch ads set their clock faces at 10:09.

Here’s an image from this link

—they all read 10:09 (=19). But the ‘Ultra’ is loaded as you might guess. Ultra gives latitude (=112 added) and longitude (=167 added) together (=279=18=9) with altitude at 14,500 (1+4+5=10), making 9+10=19 and so forth around the face of the watch.

The most significant references to ancient time-keeping given by Robert Graves in The White Goddess (published in 1946) is the overlaying of a solar calendar with a lunar calendar—alchemical time, we can call it—which has a 19-year cycle in which this heavenly ‘marriage’ meets and repeats onward in perpetuity. One of, if not the last reference to this 19-year cycle is on page 379 (3+7+9=19). Graves mentions its place in the sacred bardic alphabet as “the nineteenth [signified] by R, the Death letter, appropriate to the close of the nineteen-year cycle.”  And so 19 remains, the “end of time” cycle, even though alphabets change. The ‘R’ in modern English occupies the 18th place (1+8=9) and ‘S’ is 19, but we still seem to acknowledge something timewise deep in English culture regarding ‘R’ and ‘19’. Queen Elizabeth was recognized as ‘ER’ for Elizabeth Regina or Rex).  Regina(=54=9) and Rex(=47=11), king and queen, makes a 9-11 pair. The ascent of a king or queen as a system is predicated on Death. Rex System equates to 47+ 101(=148=1+4+8=13, Death tarot)  and Rex(=11) is a base match for Kronos (=92=11), who might have acquired his name when the Greeks invaded Pelasgian Greece around 1900 BC. And don’t we also go the ER for life-and-death emergencies, universally recognizing ER as the emergency room and 911 as its call number when time is of the essence?  Emergency Room equals 148 (=13), a match with Rex System, but the duties that were once expected from an ER is now mostly performed at a Trauma Center (=139=1+3+9=13). Trauma(=74=7+4=11) and Center(=65=6+5=11).

The 911 system was just then coming into vogue in the 1980s when Back to the Future was made. In California –Los Angeles—the local emergency call number was 116 as you see it here, from Apophenia. The first appearance of the mall clock in the movie BttF, though, is 1:15. Marty was on time at 1:15am when Doc Brown asked him to show, signficantly appropos to the precise imaging of time codes.

“1946 was the year that saw the introduction of the first emergency number in the United States. The number was 116, which connected callers to an emergency line for the city of Los Angeles in the state of California…  and the decade of the 1980s saw the beginning of widespread implementation of 911 systems.”   –in the same link, L.A. is cited as implementing 9-1-1 in October 1984, apparently a switch-over (turnover?) from 116. An actual actor turnover happened behind the scenes around this time, cutting 5 weeks of footage when Eric Stoltz was replaced by Michael J. Fox, who had been Zemeckis’s original choice but had timing obligations to his TV show Family Ties. Fox=45(=9), Zemeckis(=91) and  Family Ties (=119).  Movie mall clock time of 1:15, which opens the parking lot segment, also has an explanation in this filming retrospective (“The Chaotic Past of Back to the Future” ) as the narrator’s first words pinpoint the shooting date of the Twin Pines Mall (=167=1+6+7=14=5): “It’s January 10, 1985 [1+10+19+85=115]…Director Robert Zemeckis is at the Puente Hills Mall in California…shooting a scene”. The scene, I believe, is 9-11Pentagon code that climaxes in the next setting of 1955 at The Atomic Kid marquee. Gematria for The Atomic Kid is 119. The word Pentagon equals 92(=11); it’s a match for Kronos (=92/11) and Tick Tock (=92/11) the very first thing of things before the clocks appear at 7:53 (=15).

Atomic Time : This snapshot of the world’s first atomic clock working caught the moment at 1:49. Reverse the hands and it’s 10:09.

“Most of the concepts that led to atomic clocks were developed by Isidor Isaac Rabi and his colleagues at Columbia University in the 1930’s and 40’s. As early as 1939, Rabi had informally discussed applying his molecular beam magnetic resonance technique as a time standard with scientists at NBS. Rabi and his colleagues at Columbia first measured the cesium resonance frequency in 1940, estimating the frequency of the hyperfine transition as 9191.4 megacycles… Harold Lyons and his colleagues at NBS in Washington, DC began working towards the development of the first atomic clock in 1947. The NBS clock was based not on cesium atoms, but instead used the 23.8 GHz inversion transition of the ammonia molecule… the new clock was first operated on August 12, 1948  and was publicly demonstrated in January 1949. Although its accuracy was quickly surpassed by other atomic clocks, it marked the beginning of the era of atomic timekeeping.” Milestones:First Atomic Clock, 1948 – Engineering and Technology History Wiki

 “The societal impact of atomic clocks has been immense. Many technologies that we take for granted rely on atomic clock accuracy, including mobile phones, Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite receivers, and the electric power grid… For thousands of years prior to the invention of atomic clocks, the reference for world timekeeping was the Earth’s rotation rate…”,_1948

Apple consistently uses 9:41 in its iPhone ads –the reverse, or mirror, of the historical atomic clock.

Is Apple making a ‘left-handed’ homage  to atomic Time with the number 9191.4 and clueing us in that it works backwards and forwards, though we don’t see it? Some thought and decoding on the subject seems full of possibilities, including written language that reads left to right. The Watch faces with 10:09 (=19) seem equally portentous that Time is free to fly in either direction.  


In the Bible, there are 19 generations from Adam to Abraham– 10 to Noah who while on the Ark  tested the land for reinhabiting by sending out a raven: [Genesis 8:6-7] “At the end of forty days Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made and sent forth a raven; and it went to and fro until the waters were dried up from the earth.” (No word that the raven ever came back) “[Gen8:8] Then he sent forth a dove…but the dove found no place…” I can easily suppose that Noah’s  raven is Time. “[Gen 8:10] He waited another seven days, and again he sent forth the dove… [Gen 8:11] and the dove came back to him…[with] a freshly plucked olive leaf…[Gen 8:12] Then he waited another seven days and sent forth the dove and she did not return to him anymore.”  Some gematria play here: First=72/9,  Rav=41, Dov=41 (‘first rav’ =9+41 and is interchangeable with ‘dov’). NOAH=38/11and GENESIS=78/15

Phoenician is a mother script of ancient Mediterranean languages and gematria. Modern categorical ‘code’ assigns 115 to the entire Phoenician script –look at the boxed table on the right in the Wikipedia for ‘115’; The 19th Phoenician letter looks like ‘Q’ in English, derived from a symbol with a vertical line bisecting a circle—

 Hebrew and Phoenician correspond closely on this 19th letter ‘Kuf’ or ‘Qoph’, having its gematria set at 100, although in Hebrew it has the appearance of ‘P’. The English alphabet orders the ‘P’ and ‘Q’ side-by-side and if we add the English values together, P=16 and Q=17, we get a master number 33. An attempt at ‘qop’ pronunciation the Phoenician way produces ‘cup’, or perhaps cope and coop which both have a meaning of curving and bending. Like Time. The Cup, of course, is our Grail.

Grail=47/11. If we write First Grail and combine their values of 72(=9)+47(=11), the result is 119, achieved by 9-11.

The 19th letter of the Greek alphabet is Tau, written as a ‘T’ in English: “The Tau symbol/letter is used to represent the time constant… and sometimes the golden ratio…” ; Tau is the last letter of the 22-character Phoenician and Hebrew alphabets with a meaning from the Egyptians signifying ‘mark’: in Hebrew Tav means “mark, sign, omen, or seal [and] is the symbol of…completion… The Tav shows us that the end was set from the beginning…”

The 19th letter in 22-character Hebrew is ‘Kuf’ ( the ‘cup’ above) which I found translated as ‘monkey’ and also ‘Eve’ (=32/5 —the very First Grail):

   “The most fundamental significance in Torah of the number nineteen, the ordinal value of the kuf, is the nineteen-year cycle of the moon in relation to the sun… The moon represents the female figure, the secret of the sefirah of malchut (“kingdom”), personified by Eve (Chavah = 19, as above)… whose name also derives from the root meaning “life,” as is said: .”..and Adam called the name of his wife Eve (Chavah) for she was the mother of all life.” Nonetheless, of her is said: “her feet descend into death,” for in the primordial sin of eating…from the Tree of Knowledge, she was ultimately responsible for bringing death to the world.”; Sefirah “From Hebrew סְפִירָה‎ (s’firá, “sefirah”, literallycounting, enumeration”), plural סְפִירוֹת‎ (s’firót).”

Time, Death, Grail, Cup, Tree, Raven, Crow and Corona….

“The alchemical processing of humans is performed with the props of time and space: what happens ritually in a series of significant places can ‘bend’ reality… How is reality bent? By the placing of ritual props in ceremonial places. These places exist both in the mind and in physical space.” –p176, Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare, by Michael A. Hoffman II


Before I close out Part Two, we’ll go Back to the Future again and pick up the ‘1’s and ‘5’s. I’m calling it ‘9-11 Pentagon’ code. In the process of analyzing both Apophenia’s prediction video and the cinema blockbuster original, I realized that any number of events can be drawn from a thickly engineered production if it conforms to a templated system, such as a 9-11-11-9 Rex System that’s been developing for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Unique and tell-tale markers would have to be present in order to single out a particular event — “ritual props…in the mind and in physical space.”

Look at this snapshot from Back to the Future at hour 1: 41  (101st minute—15 minutes before the end). Apophenia used this image to show you the ‘9’ (Western Auto sign) and fiery streaks of 11, but I’m going to point out the ‘Holt’s Diner’ sign next to the Town marquee. In this moving scene you can briefly see all the letters. Extending down beneath the ‘S’ (=19)is an arrow ‘piercing’ a lighted sign that reads SERVICE.

A closer view (hr1:40/100minutes) shows the arrow through the Service sign.

—and here’s a map of Arlington with the Pentagon in the lower left. Look at the top center and find ‘Dark Star Park’ – follow Richmond Hwy from the ‘S’ curve like the downward arrow ‘buried in  the Service’ sign (Arlington Cemetery) with a tip pointing to the Pentagon.

Dark Star Park:

“Arlington Public Art is the steward of Nancy Holt’s Dark Star Park, an urban park comprising two-thirds of an acre in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington County, Virginia, located across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. Commissioned in 1979 and dedicated in 1984, the work’s title refers to five large spheres—the most prominent feature of the park—that Holt likened to extinguished stars… Holt, having recently completed Sun Tunnels (1973-76) in the Great Basin Desert, Utah, and Stone Enclosure: Rock Rings (1977-78) in Bellingham, Washington, was known for her remote works of art that marked the celestial orientation of a specific location ;

Dark Star Park is a historical monument. It commemorates an important date in Arlington’s history. On August 1, 1860, William Ross bought the land that today is Rosslyn. Every year on August 1, at 9:32 a.m., the shadows cast by the poles align…”

Gematria for Holt is 55, like vintage 1955. Gematria for Rosslyn is 122 (1+2+2=5); Arlington is 110 (or 22 x 5). There are lots of hidden 5s clustered in the movie, beginning with the title Back to the Future and its release date of July 3, 1985 (7+3(=10)+104(=5)=15 and opening scene image of an alarm clock at 7:53 (=15). But it’s the play on words that convinced me Holt’s Diner is a reference to Dark Star Park. Now that you’ve seen the Arrow shot through the ‘service’ sign, descending from the letter ‘S’ compared with a map connecting the five Dark Stars to the Pentagon, can you think of a better depiction? A slight rearrangement makes “Holt sinder” which seems both synonym and homophone to a word from Part One, ‘scindere’ meant to elucidate the origin of the word ‘science.’

From Corona the Crow, part one:

“Oracular crow words related to the fire-stone “cherry” are virtually too many to name but in the most singular sense represent the Maidenhead and rites of the Great Mother. We get the words church, chore, cherish, charm, charisma, charade, and chariot; the body (corpus) parts cervix, cortex, cerebrum, cornea, cochlea, coronary and cervical structures and chakras with the practice of body worship (can we say ‘warship’?) in service (Crow for ‘cherry’) to the godhead.

…and do we not also practice “Psi”-ence in the worship of our god-selves?

“The original notion in the Latin verb probably is “to separate one thing from another, to distinguish,” or else “to incise.” This is related to scindere “to cut, divide” (from PIE root *skei- “to cut, split;” source also of Greek skhizein “to split, rend, cleave,” Gothic skaidan, Old English sceadan “to divide, separate”).”

And so, ‘Holt sinder’ appears to me as Pentagon science in this 1955 setting. Gematria for Pentagon is 92 (9+2=11). The term ‘Dark Star’ is also 92/11. Sculptor Holt, we are told, was commissioned in 1979 to create her fallen star park, dedicated 5 years later in 1984. Note in “…Rosslyn [=119/11]. Every year on August 1 [8+1=9], at 9:32 a.m.[9+3+2=14/5] , the shadows cast by the poles align…”. Our 9-11-2001 story of the Pentagon attack has flyer 77 striking at 9:37 a.m.[9+3+7=19],  5 minutes later.

In Back to the Future, of course, Marty(=77) is our flyer, and his run for the ‘portal’ begins on the edge of Hill Valley (=77) Main Street. With precision timing, as Marty zooms away from downtown to turn around and accelerate back to the portal, his ‘Start Here’ point is marked by the Bluebird Motel sign—fully visible at the exact video timestamp of 1:36:40 — 1+36+40= 77.

The movie scene from the Bluebird sign to the ‘H’ portal lasts 5 minutes. In that window of time is a microcosm of repeating 5s, like the 1112-1112-1112etc ticking of the clock.

Here at the Bluebird Marty makes a 180 (=9) where he not only turns his ‘bird’(=33; the DMC-12=33) but changes his mind  and resets the future Destination clock, making an 11-minute setback which he hopes will give him 11 extra minutes of time when he gets back to 1985—time enough to save Doc’s life from being shot by terrorists at the Twin Pines Mall (=167=14/5). We know the Mall(=38/11) is a real location with an address. The Puente Hills mall is a shopping cathedral seen from the air as a great big cross on the landscape and we know when the shooting occurred: January 10, 1985 [1+10+19+85=115] Cross has gematria of 74/11 –Twin ‘1’s.

As for Doc and the ‘H’ portal, we see the ‘H’ in the movie hour image at 1:41:30 (1+41+30=72/(7+2=)9).

The flaming cable that crosses the fiery streaks makes an ‘H’ and underscores the ‘9’. Gematria for H is 8, and if we multiply 8 x 9 the result is 72/9, matching the video timestamp as we see the image fully on the screen .  Doc’s full name is Emmet Lathrop Brown. Lathrop anagrams to “H portal” and Brown has gematria of 72/9. ‘H’ under Atomic Kid auspices can be no other but Hydrogen; the‘super’ bombs authorized by the U.S. government in 1950 (1+9+5+0=15) on January 31 (1+31+19+50=101/11) and fully tested in 1954 (1+9+5+4=19) on Mar 1, 1954 (3+1+19+54=77)–this ‘H’ image appears at minute 101. Our history-book Father of the H-bomb, who was present on both occasions, is Dr. Teller (=72/9). Additionally, few references today offer insight into Bluebirds as nuclear artillery shells, but indeed the Bluebird calibrates this 5 minute portal scene.

“In August, 1946, Teller proposed a new design for a hydrogen bomb, which he christened the ‘Alarm Clock’ to distinguish it from the Super [design]. (His Alarm Clock, Teller boasted, would wake up the world.) This device would use an atomic trigger to ignite alternating layers of [fuel types]…in concentric shells…” p171, Brotherhood of the Bomb, by Gregg Herken, 2002.

Our Department of Energy stages its current press conferences using a concentric shell design backdrop.

The ‘Alarm Clock Super’ (=168/15), as I’m calling it, became the successful composite known as the Teller-Ulam design: “The exact history of the Teller–Ulam breakthrough is not completely known… On November 1, 1952, [11+1+1+9+5+2=29/11] the Teller–Ulam configuration was tested in the “Ivy Mike” [IVY=56/11 and MIKE=38/11 ] shot at an island in the Enewetak atoll, with a yield of 10.4 megatons of TNT (44 PJ) (over 450 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Nagasaki [=63/9]…”

10.4 megatons on a clock face might look like 10:04, the ‘preservation’ moment in the film to “save the clock tower.” (minute 10).

But here’s the question: does Back to the Future code for the September 11, 2001 attack? Let’s check the crib sheet.

Killed at the Pentagon: 125 [1+2+5=8]; killed in the aircraft, 53 passengers plus 6 crew +5 hijackers [5+3+6+5=19] Total killed 8 + 19=27/9. The pilot (=72/9, note a mirror with 27/9) Hani Hanjour (=119) “checked in separately and arrived at the passenger security checkpoint at 07:35…[this is a minute ‘mirror’ of 7:53, the first images of time in BttF, with a match to ticket-holding passengers]… Flight 77 was scheduled to depart for Los Angeles at 08:10 [8+1=9]… The 53 other passengers on board excluding the hijackers were 26 [=8] men, 22[=4] women, and five children ranging in age from three to eleven.”  –an 8 year span, [3+11=14/5] filling out the passenger profile (8+4+5=17/8) coordinated with time if you use the Back to the Future script and start the clock at 7:53a.m. There are 17 minutes from 7:53 to 8:10.  The CIA’s Alec Station (=98/17), the Osama Bin Laden unit, claimed to have tracked Hanjour(=119) since 1990 and the achievement of his pilot’s certificate in 1999. Hanjour’s skill, they said, was sufficient to pilot his 757(=19) to a 180 degree dive into the western wall of the Pentagon, destroying the U.S. Navy’s accounting office.  On this side yard today, opened in 2008,  is a 1.93 acre memorial of ‘flying’ benches, like a murder of crows on the landscape.

Bin Laden, of course, was finally dispensed in 2011 during Operation Neptune(=95)Spear(=59, mirror), led from the Pentagon by Vice-Admiral McRaven who sent in Navy Seal Team 6 (=144) to dispatch America’s most wanted. Just a taste of the number play here puts W.H. McRaven (=134) in charge of Neptune Spear (=154)[134+154=288] commanding SEALs (=56/11) to capture Osama Bin Laden (=110) Any more of 9-11-01 code I leave to you. You really can make this stuff up. Start with a crow (=59), add a raven (=60), get 119, and put a stamp on it.

Neptune Spear?

“Yes, Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus.” On Moonday December 5, 2022 [12+5+20+22=59], the day before I started this post and 20 days before Christmas (9+11 anyone?)

Back to the Future II (1989)



Director Zemeckis, along with his writing partner Michael Robert (Bob) Gale, told the Post:

… “the one script that I worked the hardest at getting set up.. was ‘Back to the Future.’…”We really did spend a lot of time on the script,” Zemeckis says of “Back to the Future.” “We just wrote and wrote and wrote the script. We really kicked it. We didn’t write this script in a week — we suffered over it. There’s not a lot of attention paid to storytelling anymore… At one point Bob and I got into this emotional funk and paranoia, and we wondered, ‘Is there too much storytelling in this movie?’ “


Examples of ‘119’s:

Zemeckis and Gale called themselves ‘the Bobs’ or ‘two Bobs’. Bob=19 and two Bobs=38/11. Add Lew R. Wasserman=171/9 of MCA.


On tap (tabletop=91) in 1984 was planning for the Gulf War:

One of the featured jet fighters was the EF-111A Raven, EF=5+6/11, A=1 or 6×1 plus Raven(=60)=66 that made its flight debut on March 10, 1977 (3+10+19+77=109)

Halloween in Seoul South Korea October 29 2022

The ‘Seoul Crush’

“Emergency officials said at least 11 calls were made by people experiencing compressive suffocation.”…“The crowd crush occurred at 22:20 local time (KST),[24][25] along an alleyway near Itaewon station Exit 1 and the Hamilton Hotel” [Hamilton=92/11]

News sources listed a body count of 155(=11) on the 30th  which was since upgraded to 158(=14)killed and 196(=16) injured[], “most,” they said, occurring in a small area of an alley beside the Hamilton (=92/11), shown in the picture above.

An event number stack, added together, might look like this:

158 (killed)

196 (injured)

Corona the Crow


“Derived from Greek κορώνη (korone) meaning “crow”. This was the name of several figures from Greek mythology, including the mother of the god Asklepios.”

“In Greek mythology, Coronis (/kɒˈrəʊnɪs/; Greek: Κορωνίς, translit. Korōnís) is a Thessalian princess and a lover of Apollo… By Apollo she became the mother of Asclepius,[2][3][4][5] the Greek god of medicine…  [In] Ancient Greek Κορωνίς means “curved, bent”[6] and shares the exact same root with κορώνη (korṓnē), meaning, among other things, “crow,” due to the curvature of its beak…”

…and from the beaks and claws of corvids, we get more words, like beaker, billet, hook and hammer.

“Beekes considers the ‘crown’ sense as derived from the formally identical Greek word korōnē ‘crow’ (see raven), which, he says, was used metaphorically ‘of all kinds of curved or hook-formed objects.’ ‘Moreover,’ he writes, ‘the metaphorical use of [korōnē] ‘crow’ is nothing remarkable given the use of its cognates …; the metaphors may have originated from the shape of the beak or the claws of the bird.’ Compare Latin corax ‘crow’ also ‘a hooked engine of war,’ French corbeau ‘raven,’ also ‘cantilever;’ English crowbar, etc.”


Not many people today would consider a language to be technology, but indeed it has ever been: “In the beginning was the Word,” and from the Word poured forth the creation of the world. To name a thing was to know it and make it real (‘royal’)– to reveal and penetrate the mystery of its being, and as the ancients believed, to assume and use the power of that which is named. And so, by naming and realizing the world around us, a vast technology of assumed power was carried in the language of the people as they roamed and survived, invaded, settled and remembered themselves from time immemorial, or better said, from time’s immeasurable memory. Time itself, as a word—crone or chronology—is a gift from the crows, and by this remembrance the ‘crow’ people have carved an immortal desire to carry the technology of time and make a god of it, Cronos –or Saturn– ruling over this world from even the dark, cold remoteness of space. The Crow of time is a great secret; it sees all, knows all, and if it did not create us, it was nevertheless set upon us as a Great Watchman.

Lord Saturn (Shani)

But, I didn’t start this post to talk about time, except to say that Time is speeding up and maybe that’s good. The end of Time, perhaps, is the end of the Crow people and they are not going without a fight—maybe you are Crow people too, from another flock, and fit for the battle. Crows are everywhere, they say. And in the huge composite of letters we call the English language, crows are also everywhere, lurking in the recesses of ancient words and mythologies among the crags of memory. Those words had no place of origin among the 400,000 and more chosen for the Oxford English Dictionary. The brethren of Oxford decided that the language should begin with Middle English, attempting the task for the first time in 1857. Failing to advance their reckoning, the Oxfordians hired James Murray in 1879 to organize a renewed effort, one that outlived Murray himself and took 49 years to complete to a respectable result of ten volumes and 3 feet of shelf space. Unlike most other letter languages, English continues to grow and abandon its over-heavy past, discarding mind, meme, and meaning on the counting-house floor. But the complexity of English is not your burden unless you choose it. Maybe you and yours were never crows. But if you map your genes among the ancient Mediterranean and Indo- European peoples, chances are deep down you’re a crow. And in your memory, if it speaks English, are crow words.

— corona, coroner, croak, croon, crown, crowd, corn, crop, curve, carriage, crave, raven, ravenous, ravine, rook, rock, cranny, cranium, Capricorn, call, Cornish, caucus, Caucasian…. And many, many more.

The Oxford English, despite expanding their lists, were well aware of not having the last (or the first!) word on crow. Interest in the olde meaning of crow words, and the name ‘Coronis’ in particular, was even then in the 1870s, shared in a London medical society text. They were looking for the original meaning of the Rod of Aesculapius (a.k.a. Aesclepius), the crow-god son of Apollo and Coronis, whose serpent staff had become their emblem.

The image below comes from reference #5 of the Coronis Wikipedia page: ‘Medical Society of London’—

Aesculapius and others like him were …”sprung from an egg”… “where a serpent in an egg is introduced as a true emblem of this deity… the emblem Coronis must sometimes have had a reference to the same. When it is said of Aesculapius…that the heavenly Coronis produced him to the world: this [twofold meaning] could not relate to the raven…yet could have no concern with his second birth, or with his birth at all. Coronis was certainly a name given by the poets and mythologists to a particular machine: the same in which the gods are supposed to have been enclosed and to have suffered a temporary death. Coronis is accordingly said to have been a vessel or float, whose extremities were equally raised and turned up like a crescent… By Coronis is signified a ship which has its two ends bent and turned up… The name was adapted to vessels of this form, from their representing the lunar emblem, the mystical machine Selene. This was the original Coronis and the name was given from a bird of the sea.”


The bird-of-the-sea who flew with the dragon-headed ships that carried it were once the Raven-painted sails of the Norsmen who set these oracular birds on the shoulders of their highest lord Odin (Woden).

It is another medical fellowship that preserves the ravens of Odin (‘Thought’ and ‘Memory’) as its emblem, the Society of Radiology, which represents the invading technologies of radiation. Like Odin’s birds returning to their master, they bring secrets out of the darkness and ‘prophesy’ to the fates. A modern irony in the symbolic choice of Thought and Memory is that, like a pirate’s corsair (a crow word), these ray-vens steal for themselves the very substance of the names, causing (more crowish) the loss of both.

Here is one of their own with The Supervoltage Story, or how high-energy particle accelerators came into medical use:

 “…let us listen to Munin, our messenger of memory, who with Hugin, the messenger of thought, appear on the heraldry of this Society (Fig. 1). It is good, as I said to this Society now some 15 years ago, from time to time to recall the past beyond the memory of many of us so that we may know of how those things which we accept as commonplace came to be…” The Supervoltage Story , 1974 lecture by Milford D. Schulz, MD 

Taking Dr. Schulz’s advice, “It is good…from time to time to recall the past beyond the memory of many of us so that we may know of how those things which we accept as commonplace came to be”

No one can say where or when the Crow people originated. Perhaps they were remnants of the great floods that created the Mediterranean.  Robert Graves, who had a genius for the Welsh bardic tradition, wrote in his 1946 book The White Goddess, that the Greeks called them Pelasgians, or “seafarers,” whom they conquered or assimilated. Like the Indo-European Greeks who came later, the Pelasgians may have also come from the east through Anatolia and Canaan where they established their legacy of Phoenicia and customized their crow into a Phoenix.

 “The Pelasgians claimed to be born from the teeth of the cosmic snake Ophion whom the Great Goddess in her character of Eurynome (‘wide rule’) had taken as her lover, thereby initiating the material Creation; but Ophion and Eurynome are Greek renderings of the original names. They may have called themselves Danaans after the same goddess [of Creation]…” p62, The White Goddess.

The ‘wide rule’ of Eurynome, it appears, was a great circle of interconnecting water systems encompassing the whole of Europe’s landmass from the Arctic, to the inland seas of the Steppe, southward to the Mediterranean and out again to the Atlantic—a clockwork of water and time, remade between the shattering cataclysms of destruction that “ate their children and drank their blood.” In those lost days, survival may have required the abilities of serpents and birds, and to them we look again to initiate Creation.

For the first Crow Show of June –Queen of the World, 2022 Platinum Jubilee – this ‘remote’ Tree lighting illuminated a symbolic  snake staff of magenta-to-white from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace        

And what does this display of royal pageantry mean?


For an up-to-date look at the Jubilee show from the mixed-reality denizens of blockchain and ‘social impact’ investing, Alison McDowell writes,  “With the rise of synthetic biology and nano-machines, it seems an appropriate time to reflect on the Hermetic tradition and the propensity of power to attempt to mask black magic rites with feeble trappings of fraudulent divine intent. In my opinion such a dynamic was at work here, broad-based attempts to propagandize the world into believing synthetic is natural and sacred. It has everything to do with England’s traditions of scientifically managed breeding, including Galton and eugenics…”


Tree of Life from T-mobile?

What I see in the logo is a couple of twin cube bits (qubits) floating in alignment with this white T, hanging together on invisible threads –entangled in magenta perpetuity (‘magen’ means ‘king’). The Internet of Bodies and Things, they’re telling us, is a vast phenomenon of quantum computing—a bio-digital convergence that is re-generating the world, re-generating economies, and resetting the scope of human activity.  The New Creation story no longer depends on us “coming down from the trees,” which is still a metaphor for human origins, but as shown in the Jubilee, injecting their lit-bit entanglements up the tree. Undeniably, this is a re-versal of our creation story.

The Great Mother of the sea-bird folk has come down to us in myriad forms and symbols but are all representations of the Womb of Creation. She is the Tree of Life, a ‘twin’ creator in Bronze Age conception, and as Robert Graves reveals, the giver of language and letters. In the opening chapters of The White Goddess, Graves expands on the interpretation of a holy riddle called The Battle of the Trees, the ‘battle’ order (and calendar) of an ancient alphabet that conveys sacred knowledge of the Goddess. He also tells us that “the Pelasgians were called Dioi (‘divine’) because they alone of all the Greeks preserved the use of letters after the Deluge” –p226, ibid.  In this generic sense of Pelasgians, it was they who spread the practice of writing and symbolizing speech– again. The Hero who fathered them, Phoroneus, was a primordial Prometheus whose ‘phor’ in his name was the ‘fire’ of thought and memory, “and who had for a mother the essential spirit of the very earth of Argos herself, Argia.”

Argeia, meaning ‘dazzling white,’ is the White Goddess who mated with the titan river-god Inachus in her aspect of an Ash Tree nymph. Phoroneus’s sister Io “became Isis when she reached Egypt” (Graves p232) bringing the Letters (‘oracles’) with her to the Egyptians. A result of this transfer, and others like it, may be seen in the Demotic script and cuneiform Armana Letters, created in the time of Akhenaton (mid-14th century BCE)

Technology among the settlers of the Mediterranean transitioned in this period to the Iron Age and “ the beginning of the historiographical record…”; from which we learn that Phoroneus became the Kronos of Olympia, a primordial Hero who invented fire, founded the Law, and was celebrated at the Spring Equinox.

 “It has not yet been established when people first began worshipping at Olympia. However, archaeological finds show that the area was at least settled from the 3rd millennium B.C. It is also known that the first Sanctuary was the Gainon, which was found at the foot of Kronos hill and was dedicated to Gaia (Earth), the wife of Ouranos (Heaven). That was also, as it is said, the most ancient oracle of Olympia.”

“In Greek mythology, Cronus, Cronos, or Kronos (/ˈkroʊnəs/ or /ˈkroʊnɒs/, from Greek: Κρόνος, Krónos) was the leader and youngest of the first generation of Titans, the divine descendants of the primordial Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Father Sky). He overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own son Zeus and imprisoned in Tartarus  “Tartarus is both a deity and a place in the underworld. In ancient Orphic sources and in the mystery schools, Tartarus is also the unbounded first-existing entity from which the Light and the cosmos are born… third of the primordial deities, following after Chaos and Gaia… offspring of Aether and Gaia.”   Graves tells us that “Tar” in the Aegean tongue means “west” and “the dying sun… The reduplication tar-tar, meaning the far, far west, has evidently given Tartara, the land of the dead, its name.”—p372, The White Goddess

As Greeks displaced Pelasgians, the descendents of Kronos divided and moved west to ancient Iberia (Portugal and Spain), north to Thrace and Gaul or remained and assimilated, elaborating the pantheon of the sacred Crow from where the goddess Coronis made her match with Apollo, mothering the Asclepiads of therapeutic arts and secrets. “Apollo was not at that time a Sun-god, but an Underworld oracular hero…herdsman to…the Minyan king of Pherae in Thessaly…” –p141, ibid.

“Neptune pursuing Coronis who is changed into a crow,” 1590, by Hendrick Goltzius

“The first Greeks to invade Greece were the Achaeans who broke into Thessaly about 1900 BC; they were patriarchal herdsmen and worshipped an Indo-European male trinity of gods, originally perhaps Mitra, Varuna and Indra… subsequently called Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. Little by little they conquered the whole of Greece and tried to destroy the semi-matriarchal Bronze Age civilization that they found there, but later compromised with it, accepted matrilinear succession and enrolled themselves as sons of the variously named Great Mother… [The] Achaeans who had occupied Argolis now also took the name of Danaans and also became seafarers [p62]… The Aeolian Greeks invaded Thessaly from the north…settled down amicably with the Achaean Danaans and became known as the Minyans [p63]…[And] about 1250 BC a distinction arose between the Achaean Danaans and other less civilized Achaeans…who invaded the Peloponnese, founded a new patriarchal dynasty, repudiated the sovereignty of the Great Goddess and instituted the familiar Olympian pantheon ruled over by Zeus… suggest[ing] religious revolution [that] was at first strongly resisted by the Danaans and Pelasgians…  Poseidon the ash[tree]-god and Zeus the oak-god were both once armed with thunderbolts; but when the Achaeans humbled the Aeolians [minyans], Poseidon’s bolt was converted into a trident or fish spear and Zeus reserved the sole right to wield the bolt…  The original Danaans may well have come up to the Aegean from Lake Tritonis in Libya… though it is unlikely that they were so called until they reached Syria… We may further identify Danu with the Mother-goddess of the Aegean ‘Danuna,’ a people who about the year 1200 BC, according to contemporary Egyptian inscriptions, invaded Northern Syria in company with…other Eastern Mediterranean peoples. To the Egyptians these were all ‘Peoples of the Sea’…forced by the pressure of the new Indo-European horde to emigrate… ” –p64, The White Goddess.

Robert Graves: “Since the close connexion here suggested between ancient British, Greek, and Hebrew religion will not be easily excepted, I wish to make it immediately clear that I am not a British Israelite… My reading of the case is that at different periods in the second millennium B.C. a confederacy of mercantile tribes, called in Egypt ‘the People of the Sea’, were displaced from the Aegean…[and] that some of these wandered north along already established trade-routes, and eventually reached Britain and Ireland; and that others wandered west…[with] some elements reaching Ireland by way of North Africa and Spain. Still others invaded Syria and Canaan, among them the Philistines who captured the shrine of Hebron in southern Judea from the Edomite clan… These borrowings were eventually harmonized in the Pentateuch with a body of Semitic, Indo-European and Asianic myth which composed  the religious traditions of the mixed Israelite confederacy. The connexion then, between the early myths of the Hebrews, Greeks, and the Celts is that [they] were civilized by the same Aegean people…And this is not of merely antiquarian interest, for the popular appeal of modern Catholicism is, despite the patriarchal Trinity and the all-male priesthood, based rather on the Aegean Mother-and-son religious tradition…than on its Aramaean or Indo-European ‘warrior-god’ elements.” –p61, ibid.

Indeed, the Great Mother gives birth to the son who becomes her husband and hero: In ancient Syria she is Asherah (Astarte, Ashteroth), wife of EL, represented as a wooden “pole”, mast, or staff. In Asherah’s icons a ‘tree’ is typically carved on her belly—the word belly deriving from her son(s) Bel, Baal, Belinus—and we would recognize her cognates in the sacred ASH tree: “In Greece the ash was sacred to Poseidon, the second god of the Achaean trinity…”(p176, ibid.)

Asherah, God’s wife (from minute 27 to the end), the Tree of Life

The brothers of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades, were both eventually given ‘trident’ fish-spears to wield, beginning with the diminution of Poseidon, “and Zeus reserved the sole right to wield the Bolt.” In Greek, the letter ‘Psi’ reveals the fish spear which today is heraldry for Psychology and numerous other applications, for example, denoting ‘pseudo-uracil’ as a form of ribonucleic acid in mRNA. We saw the fish spear Letter earlier in the hands of Lord Saturn the crow. In the lands of letters we see Psi becoming three: U, I, and Y, but in its simplest observation there is a tree with three branches.

“Pseudouridine (abbreviated by the Greek letter psi- Ψ)[1] is an isomer of the nucleoside uridine in which the uracil is attached via a carbon-carbon instead of a nitrogen-carbon glycosidic bond. (In this configuration, uracil is sometimes referred to as ‘pseudouracil’.) Pseudouridine is the most abundant RNA modification in cellular RNA… Ψ is found in the large and small ribosomal subunits of all domains of life and their organelles… When pseudouridine is used in place of uridine in synthetic mRNA, the modified mRNA molecule arouses less response from Toll-like receptors, a part of the human immune system that would otherwise identify the mRNA as unwelcome. This makes pseudouridine useful in mRNA vaccines, including the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. This property of pseudouridine was discovered by Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman in 2005.”

The team of ‘Kariko-Weissman’ that discovered this stealthy property of pseudouracil in RNA would probably not appreciate me pointing out that their combined names carry the meaning of ‘White Crow’. In birdland today, a white crow or raven is considered a mutation but in origin stories of crows they were all once white until cast into a fire and roasted black.


The HARBINGER implicit in this message from the crows, coded deeply into our collective consciousness by symbols and myth, is the ongoing subject of this post as Corona the Crow continues. In a tie-in with magenta-to-white of the T-mobile logo, calling it “New Magenta” as they do, one of a few anagrams from New Magenta is “want Ma gene”– a ‘mother’ seed-of-change from the Technocracy.


In the Mother tongue, ‘charcoal’ is a compound crow word of carbonaceous material obtained by heating an organic substance, as wood, in the absence of air” (from the Webster’s on my shelf), producing a useful product from the fire that is also called a ‘cherry’, or fruit of the firey wood. On nature’s terms, coals are the harvest of ashes and soot, survivors of holo-causts that can be carried away as seeds of new fires. In the naming of things (‘taxonomy’) we give the cherry-(carbon)-ASH-seed-coals to the family of birds called “Craticus” –the ‘calling’ birds, who in their flight of exodus (‘colare’ in Latin) carry ‘fire’ out into the world.  By the fanciful expansion of sacred language ( as in ‘chola’, or ‘cola’) the name (Saint) Nicholas—Santa Claus— conjures a crow visit on one of the most sacred calendar nights of the year—the ‘darkest’ and coldest of days in the north. To the English, he was ‘old King Cole.’ To their ancestors, he was Saturn (Set, Satan, or ‘soot’), Lord Chronos the timekeeper, and his party was called Saturnalia.

American schoolchildren have traditionally learned that the Father of the Nation, George Washington, chopped down a cherry tree as a child of six, and though ‘wrong’ in doing so he was reconciled to his father by telling the truth. As one of the most celebrated secret-society Freemasons in history, the falsity of this tale is one to reckon with.  Children all over it seems are subject to a version of Santa Claus, whether or not he enters by the fireplace, in the great make-believe of being ‘everywhere, all at once’ and knowing what they deserve. Good children get presents in their stockings and bad ones get lumps of coal, perhaps in the old days well aware that it meant violating the catechism of good behavior. Do we give lumps of coal to kids today, or do we give them cell phones for good behavior?—amounting to much the same psychic result of casting them into the fire for remaking:

 “ ‘Almost all people of all eras are hypnotics. Their beliefs are induced beliefs. The proper authorities saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and people believed properly.’ –Charles Fort… In a study of mind control and psychological warfare, it is not enough to simply review the latest technology of coercion… Far more dangerous than these appliances is the praxis behind them, the underground current which informs the modern project and this modern era. For life in our modern era is little more than life in an open-air mind control laboratory where a form of human alchemy has emerged to transform the mass of targeted percipients—targeted merely by virtue of their being urban dwellers plugged into the electronic and digital pageantry of the Establishment’s system-of-things.”—pp18-19,  Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare, by Michael A. Hoffman II, 2001


Oracular crow words related to the fire-stone “cherry” are virtually too many to name but in the most singular sense represent the Maidenhead and rites of the Great Mother. We get the words church, chore, cherish, charm, charisma, charade, and chariot; the body (corpus) parts cervix, cortex, cerebrum, cornea, cochlea, coronary and cervical structures and chakras with the practice of body worship (can we say ‘warship’?) in service (Crow for ‘cherry’) to the godhead.

…and do we not also practice “Psi”-ence in the worship of our god-selves?

“The original notion in the Latin verb probably is “to separate one thing from another, to distinguish,” or else “to incise.” This is related to scindere “to cut, divide” (from PIE root *skei- “to cut, split;” source also of Greek skhizein “to split, rend, cleave,” Gothic skaidan, Old English sceadan “to divide, separate”).”

The equivalence of Science from its ancient roots evolved from ‘scythe’ (‘scithe’), ‘sword’, ‘scion’, ‘scier’ and ‘sek’: The Proto-Indo-European (PIE) use of ‘sek’ is suggested in the Hittite word ‘shakk’, or “to know,” and the Lithuanian word ‘isekti’ which means “to engrave, carve,” and rather tellingly associated by sound and spelling to the Old French ‘scier’(’sier’) meaning ‘saw’.   “Since the Middle Ages, it was carried by personifications of Time and Death.”


“Where Does the Grim Reaper Come From? The Grim Reaper is a psychopomp: a creature (in this case, roughly human in form) that guides departed souls to the afterlife. Throughout history, there have been numerous psychopomps, from other human versions to animals, like ravens. Compared to ancient angels of death, the Grim Reaper is a relatively recent addition… It’s thought that the Grim Reaper appeared in around the 14th century when a specific historical…event known as the Black Death or simply “the plague” changed the way the average person viewed death… Additionally, the Grim Reaper is often pictured floating or flying, rather than simply walking. This mimics the ways in which the death gods of eras past got around, including the Valkyries, who hovered above battlefields.”

The Coroner

Little imagination appends to our progress in defining TIME and DEATH as a heritage of “cut, slash, and burn” science. Kitchens and washrooms have become our modern laboratories and the domain of skillful ‘cleavers’ (clever) in their arts. A personal joke of mine is to mentally refer to Pierre and Marie Curie and their friends as the Val-Curies, whose contributions to 20th century science can hardly be overstated. Ironically perhaps, “Curie” is straight from the Crow lexicon: “ ‘Cure’…from Old Latin coira-, a noun of unknown origin…[which has evolved to] cura ‘care, concern, trouble,’ or… In reference to fish, pork, etc., ‘prepare for preservation by drying, salting, etc.,’” to which we might add smoking, charring, boiling and canning in our acts of preservation. To this end, the modern model derived from antiquity is to build great labyrinths of stores for bodies and minds; catacombs, cemeteries, hospitals, libraries, and schools, over which bureaucrats, democrats, and aristocrats are called to rule. In medieval times, the great gothic cathedral itself was a ‘curation’ for the body-and-soul of the community. In all these places, we are meant to be secured and safely lost to the outside world to attain a sacred purpose –to be found, in oneself, transformed and completed.

History’s most celebrated labyrinth lies below the palace of Knossos on the island of Crete from where the legend of Theseus and the Minotaur, the bull-headed creature of Minos, was born. In short, Theseus of Athens posed as a sacrificial ‘tribute’ to the powerful Minoans in order to kill the labyrinth-dwelling Minotaur and end the tributary practice of Crete. The word ‘labyrinth’ is generally agreed to derive from ‘labrys’, a ceremonial double-headed axe which “is not a weapon and always accompanies women” , having its likeliest origin from Labraunda in the Anatolian province of Caria. The eastern Carians may be the oldest settlers of Crete, dating back to 7000BC, and builders of the labyrinth which the palace of Knossus supplanted. The evident ‘T’ shape of the labrys and associated bull—cow mother from the Age of Taurus—identifies a matriarchal culture. As a daughter of the Moon (Pasifae) from Crete, and half-sister to the Minotaur, the goddess Ariadne was carried to the far reaches of Europe where her legacy in Wales became Arianrhod, and her abode in the sky named “Corona Borealis” –as Robert Graves explains, “Arianrhod is one more more aspect of Caridwen, or Cerridwen, the White Goddess of Life-in-Death and Death-in-Life; and to be in the Castle of Arianrhod is to be in a royal purgatory awaiting resurrection. For in primitive European belief it was only kings, chieftains and poets, or magicians, who were privileged to be reborn. Countless other less distinguished souls wandered disconsolately in the icy grounds of the Castle, as yet uncheered by the Christian hope of universal resurrection.” –p98, The White Goddess.

Does this constellation look like a crown? Or a set of horns? Note from the Wikipedia link that “Among the Bedouins, the constellation was known as qaṣʿat al-masākīn (قصعة المساكين), or “the dish/bowl of the poor people”  —

As a bowl, cup or cauldron,  the Womb of creation is once again the sacred object from which the most valiant servants are recycled and born again. The Bronze Age dispersion of Crow people saw ‘new’ funerary practices brought into central Europe which included cremation and the collection of ashes in urns, considered a cultural innovation called “Urnfield” (13th c.BC) and descriptive of people who made ceremonial use of cauldrons. One of the most famous cauldrons in art history is a first century artifact known as the Gundestrup Cauldron, found in Denmark 1891 and assumed to be originally forged in the Balkans where it once had glass eyes. Gundestrup is an impressive treat for your eyes: On the first panel shown here the goddess and her wheels suggest a Cinderella carriage. The second shows the recycling warriors emerging from the immortal urn on horse.

In this work of Scottish art, we see the Phoenix, like a white raven, rising from its immortal cauldron.

“A valkyrie (pronounced “VAL-ker-ee”; Old Norse valkyrja, plural valkyrjur, “choosers of the fallen”) is a female helping spirit of the god Odin. The modern image of the valkyries as elegant, noble maidens bearing dead heroes to Valhalla is largely accurate for what it is, but a highly selective portrayal that exaggerates their pleasant qualities… As far as we today can tell, the valkyries have always had such characteristics, but in heathen times they were far more sinister. The meaning of their name, “choosers of the slain,” refers not only to their choosing who gains admittance to Valhalla, but also to their choosing who dies in battle… The Saga of the Volsungs compares beholding a valkyrie to “staring into a flame.”….

“Piezoelectricity was discovered in 1880 by Pierre and Paul-Jacques Curie, who found that when they compressed certain types of crystals including quartz, tourmaline, and Rochelle salt, along certain axes, a voltage was produced on the surface of the crystal. The next year, they observed the converse effect, the elongation of such crystals upon the application of an electric current.”,was%20produced%20on%20the%20surface%20of%20the%20crystal. “The first practical application was sonar, and it was developed in France during World War I, by Paul Langevin and his coworkers…”

Pierre Curie was killed by a fast-moving horse-drawn wagon as he stepped off a curb into a rainy Paris street near the Sorbonne in 1906. He was by then distracted and made ill by radiation. His 1903 Nobel legacy speech left us these words: “It is possible to conceive that in criminal hands radium might prove very dangerous, and the question therefore arises whether it be to the advantage of humanity to know the secrets of nature, whether we be sufficiently mature to profit by them, or whether that knowledge may not prove harmful. Take for instance, the discoveries of Nobel—powerful explosives have made it possible for men to achieve admirable things, but they are also a terrible means of destruction in the hands of those great criminals who draw nations into war. I am among those who believe with Nobel that humanity will obtain more good than evil from future discoveries.”

In 1995, amid high ceremony and national pride, the Curies were exhumed from their humble churchyard graves and prepared for re-interment in the great Pantheon of Paris. As she was the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne in life, Marie was the first woman at the Pantheon in death. Their radioactive remains lay sealed in lead-lined sarcophaguses, deep in the labyrinthine crypt: “ their remains are quite unique: When they were disinterred from their original resting place, they were so radioactive that they were interred in the Pantheon in inch-thick lead coffins that prevent the radiation from harming those who come to honor them…with radium 226, the most stable isotope of radium that has a half-life of approximately 1,500 years, their remains will stay dangerously radioactive for at least that long.”  Longer, in fact, if the “times ten” rule-of-thumb for half-lives is applied, this Ave Maria will chirp 15,000 years into the future.

“The Latin Cronos was called Saturn and in his statues he was armed with a pruning-knife crooked like a crow’s bill: probably a rebus on his name. For though the later Greeks liked to think that the name meant chronos, ‘time’, because any very old man was humorously called ‘Cronos’, the more likely derivation is from the same root cron or corn that gives the Greek and Latin words for crow—corone and cornix. The crow was a bird much consulted by augurs and symbolic, in Italy as in Greece, of long life.” –p66, The White Goddess.

“The carrion crow (Corvus corone) is a passerine bird of the family Corvidae and the genus Corvus which is native to western Europe and the eastern Palearctic… and it still bears its original name of Corvus corone.[2] The binomial name is derived from the Latin corvus, “raven”,[3] and Greek κορώνη korōnē, “crow”.[4] The hooded crow, formerly regarded as a subspecies, has been split off as a separate species…and it has been proposed they could have evolved independently in the wetter, maritime regions at the opposite ends of the Eurasian landmass.[5] Along with the hooded crow, the carrion crow occupies a similar ecological niche in Eurasia to the American crow (C. brachyrhynchos) in North America…The plumage of the carrion crow is black with a green or purple sheen, much greener than the gloss of the rook. The bill, legs and feet are also black. It can be distinguished from the common raven by its size… Scientific classification: Animalia; Phylum Chordata; Class Aves; Order Passeriformes; Family Corvidae; Genus Corvus; Species; C. corone…”

aviary (n.)

1570s, from Latin aviarium “place in which birds are kept,” neuter of aviarius “of birds,” from avis “bird,” from PIE root *awi- “bird”…*awi-  also might be the source of *wyo, *yyo, Proto-Indo-European words for “egg” …the hypothetical source of/evidence for its existence is provided by: Sanskrit vih, Avestan vish, Latin avis “bird;” Greek aietos “eagle;” Old Church Slavonic aja, Russian jajco, Breton ui, Welsh wy, Greek ōon, Latin ovum, Old Norse egg, Old High German ei, Gothic ada all meaning “egg.”


“hail,” also “farewell,” early 13c. (in reference to the Ave Maria), from Latin ave, second person singular imperative of avere “to be or fare well”…Ave Maria  modified form of the angelic salutation…  See ave + Maria.” ; “historically, ave was the common word for any bird…”

The literal root-word meaning of “ave Maria” is bird-of-the-sea:

 “In medieval poetry the Virgin Mary was plainly identified with the Muse [Triple Goddess]…in charge of the Cauldron of Cerridwen… The medieval Brigit shared the Muse-ship with…’Mary Gipsy’ or St. Mary of Egypt… This charming Virgin with the blue robe and pearl necklace was the ancient pagan Sea-goddess Marian in transparent disguise… Marian is the merry-maid, as ‘mermaid’ was once written… Every initiate of the Eleusinian Mysteries, which were of Pelasgian origin, went through a love rite with her representative after taking a cauldron bath… The Greeks called her Aphrodite (‘risen from sea foam’)…[and she] can be identified with the Moon-goddess Eurynome [‘wide rule’] whose statue…in Arcadia was a mermaid carved in wood.” –pp393-395, The White Goddess.

A curious turn of language for ‘cauldron’ in Welsh is the word ‘pair’ (or ‘peir’) and a secondary form ‘mair’, both translations for cauldron, according to Graves’s source. Their French homophones ‘pere’ and ‘mere’ describe parents, and interestingly, provide roots to the names Pierre and Marie which could otherwise be associated to ‘rock’ and ‘water’– an elemental pairing of the primal Earth itself. Or herself, as any sea bird would know. Perhaps in this ‘first couple’ of the Paris Pantheon, exhumed for the New Age Millenium, we have a Revelation of the Method that Michael Hoffman describes as the Alchemical Processing of Humanity:

 “The occult Cryptocracy processes the Group Mind of the masses through psychodrama. The alchemical and Rosicrucian command dogmas were literary works… The narrative, the plot, the characters and symbolism all constitute the imprinting that is one of the highest functions of cere-mon[y]… There is a dark poetry to ritual…, to twilight language, to the fantastic convergences known as coincidence. Most ‘conspiracy researchers’ miss these. The best investigator –of the occult or of almost anything else—has a child-like sense of curiosity and wonder about seemingly mundane things. John Stilgoe, professor of Landscape History at Harvard University, in his book Outside Lies Magic, writes of the ‘ordinary’ in our lives: ‘The whole concatenation of wild and artificial things, the natural ecosystem as modified by people over the centuries, the built environment layered over layers… becomes the theater that intrigues… fascinates… and above all expands any mind focused on it. Outside lies utterly ordinary space open to any casual explorer willing to find the extraordinary. Outside lies unprogrammed awareness…” –p7, Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare, 2001, Michael A. Hoffman II.

500 miles per gallon

We could all be averaging 500mpg without reinventing combustion motors– better yet, the vapor fuel design emits ZERO pollution. Watch the documentary ‘Gashole’


Here’s a re-post from 2012:

MPG on The Road Not Taken

When I see news about the price of gas or commercials for new cars and trucks touting twenty-or-thirty-something miles per gallon (or particularly during a shortage, outage, energy disaster or smog test!), it makes me think of Tom Ogle and his vapor-fuel system. I read about Tom a few years ago and his story becomes ever more poignant for its place in geopolitics and time.  

Ron Laytner wrote, “In 1978 I first interviewed Tom Ogle who created a device replacing the carburetor [that] allowed his 4,000 pound car to get 100 miles per gallon… Four years later Tom, at age 24, was in his grave and his invention, buried.” So Laytner is asking, “Did the world not go green because of a murder?…Tom said the 100mpg..was only the beginning of his newfound fuel efficiency.”

   “Tom felt confident that on the smaller, lighter cars..he could get nines times as much. That means..900 miles per gallon… ‘This is no hoax’, said Dr. Hawkins [Texas A&M engineer PhD, who approved and supported Tom’s system], ‘Ogle eliminated the carburetor and achieved what the gasoline internal combustion engine was supposed to do all along –to operate off fumes’… Seventy years ago Canadian Charles Nelson Pogue made headlines long before Tom Ogle when he drove a 1932 Ford 200 miles on a single gallon of gas… a test for The Ford Motor Company in Winnipeg…” ; Pogue’s story: 

   If Henry Ford was impressed in 1932, it was a complement by design when he unveiled his “Soybean Car”, made with soy-based plastic panels, “on August 13, 1941 at Dearborn festival… The car weighed 2000 lbs [1,000 less than his other models]… The exact ingredients of the plastic..are unknown because no record of the formula exists today… [Ford] also claimed that the plastic panels made the car safer than traditional steel cars; and that the car could even roll over without being crushed.” . Ford’s early cars were designed to run on alcohol.

   Then there’s Rudolf Diesel who invented his motor to run on peanut oil. Diesel disappeared from a train ride and was found dead 10 days later.

Laytner points out that another young American inventor who designed a dune buggy to run on water died at the height of his expectant success: “Stanley Allen Meyer..had twenty patents on many water-fueled inventions.”

GASHOLE from 2008 is a fine documentary as these things go, and worth every minute of your time but it’s not without a few major holes of its own. At one hour and 9 minutes it mentions Peak Oil, a subject much talked about after 9-11, brought to my personal attention by Mike Ruppert and his website “From the Wilderness,” as I was catching on. Ruppert passed away in 2014 but From the Wilderness is still online here

The man who ‘authored’ the Peak Oil scenario in 1956 was  Shell Oil Co. geologist Marion King Hubbert and he was tutored in the Peak Oil perspective by the US Atomic Energy Commission, in preparation for the 1956 conference of the American Petroleum Institute. What seems highly relevant about Hubbert today is that in 1932 at Columbia University he was one of the 2-man cofounders of Technocracy Inc. Note that in that ‘Gashole’, it was the Shell scientists who achieved the “1000 miles per gallon’ breakthrough.


Here’s another 2012 repost from this blog, part of the JFK Conspiracy Con posts, which originates from my point of view of the crippling disease polio caused by radiation poisoning and the urgency in the ‘50s to bring the oil majors into nuclear industry.


PEAK OIL, lowering the boom

The Atomic Energy Act of 1954 set a plan in motion to put nuclear power into private hands, which the AEC launched by building the first commercial energy reactor in Shippingport Pennsylvania, ceremoniously inaugerated on May 26 of 1955, which was just after the “Cutter Incident” as the Salk polio vaccine was released on the public, during Operation Teapot at NTS. Lewis Strauss was invited to speak at Shippingport’s start-up: “In the course of a brief remark, I ventured a prediction that nuclear power plants of much greater size and more sophisticated technology would soon be built.” [p324, Men and Decisions].  At the same time, a Shell Oil Co. geologist named Marion King Hubbert began working for the Atomic Energy Commission. As Hubbert recalled it: “In the summer…spring and summer of 1955, I had begun service and had a couple of preliminary meetings [with] the Advisory Committee of the..Atomic Energy Commission on Waste Disposal. Land Nuclear Waste Disposal… In the course of those hearings, I had obtained information which I had not had before on the magnitude of the energy that could be obtained from fission… previously I’d regarded nuclear energy as unpromising because of the scarcity of uranium and thorium… So, this awareness of the magnitude of energy..changed the picture in my mind… So that, in turn, reflected on my previous analysis of energy based on fossil fuels.

   “Some time in the fall of 1955…I was on a trip to Denver on company business..[and] encountered one of the Shell production engineers whom I knew from Houston, and we had breakfast together… [He] remarked that he was..chairman of the program committee of the forthcoming American Petroleum Institute March. And they were looking for someone who could give them a broad brush picture of the overall world energy situation…” 

   According to the website, ,  Hubbert had only recently obtained sufficient information from the AEC to give a presentation, and “at the time he was convinced that atomic energy was a viable source for future world energy needs [though] Hubbert did ultimately change his mind.” Later in life, when this interview took place, Hubbert’s opinion of nuclear power was “the sooner we get rid of it the better off we’re going to be.”  Nevertheless, Hubbert carried the torch for Peak Oil (that reserves would ‘peak’ in 1970 and thereafter decline toward a global shortage) from the time of his March 1956 presentation to the API in San Antonio and for the rest of his life. John F. Kennedy almost caused Peak Oil to become undone by marginalizing Hubbert in favor of a USGS report stating there was plenty of oil. Hubbert also later said of his Peak Oil theory that “there was not a lot of analysis that went into it” but he still defended it. In 1964, Hubbert quit Shell and went to work for the USGS… “this led to a 1967..paper showing that discoveries..were declining..back to within the original [1956 predicted range]… The U.S. peaked in 1970.”

Nature Fakers


hand drawn ‘radiobes’

Submitted as evidence for Virus on Trial.

Before you read on, though, know that I’m posting this as part of the Full Spectrum Dominance paradigm of life on earth coupled to the replacement narrative of ourselves. The techno-metabiology in practice is an AI-assisted full spectrum exploiter and we do not know if there is a dimension left anywhere in which we can thrive. But I can suggest, by it’s ‘shortage’, that LOVE, and the respect for life that promotes it, creates those dimensions without any technology, spells, symbols, geometries or magic.

I’m borrowing my title from a caption written underneath the photo- portrait of a renown botanist named Charles Stuart Gager who wrote a book in 1908 called “Effects of the Rays of Radium on Plants.”

The source of Gager’s photo is from the 2017 lecture presentation “Radium and the Secret of Life”, a recent book by Professor Luis Campos, chair of astrobiology and history at the University of New Mexico.

I recommend the video for taking the road from the radium craze of the early 1900s to the dropping of atomic bombs, and Campos’s emphasis on the biological work of Hermann J. Muller, a mutation expert who predicted the types and proportions of chronic illnesses we would experience as our exposures to radiation increased.  When Muller won the Nobel Prize in 1946 he said this:

  “We can…draw the practical lesson from the fact of the great majority of mutations being undesirable [and] that their further random production in ourselves should so far as possible be rigorously avoided…    [W]ith certainty from experiments on lower organisms that all high-energy radiation must produce such mutations in man, it becomes an obligation…to insist that simple precautions are taken…whenever people are exposed to such radiation, either in industry or medical practice. And with the coming increasing use of atomic energy, even for peacetime purposes, the problem will become very important of insuring that the human germ plasm—the all-important material of which we are the temporary custodians—is effectively protected from this additional and potent source of permanent contamination.”

Campos adds his commentary, “so you won’t be surprised then to learn that Muller was an early proponent of a Cold War bunker for human reproduction.”

No, no surprise. If the early uses of radium are enough to start your imagination rolling, consider the industry-in-progress that brought on the Manhattan Project and the postwar tests at Bikini Atoll called ‘Crossroads.’ By the time Muller made his Nobel speech in ‘46, the train had long since left the station in a wake of permanent contamination. Coincident to Muller’s prize was that of Wendall Stanley, the biochemist who crystallized tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), introduced on the blog in Planting Viruses Two

Watch Radium and the Secret of Life here

Much earlier in 1916, Muller remarked that “a curious similarity…exists between two of the main problems of physics and of biology. The central problem of biological evolution is in the nature of mutation… tho’ a control of it might obviously place the process of evolution in our hands…[And] if a means were found of influencing it, we might have inanimate matter practically at our disposal, and would hold the key to unthinkable stores of concentrated energy that would render possible any achievement with inanimate things. Mutation and Transmutation—the two keystones of our rainbow bridges to power!” [minute 39 of Radium and the Secret of Life]



1903 is the year Professor Campos pinpoints as the start of the radium craze which melded into the parallel X-ray craze of the times –likewise in respect to promoting medical cure-alls—with the accessible x-rays inducing immense curiosity, and as Muller found out in the ‘20s, infinitely more ‘productive’ for mutation work and the study of “genetic engineering”.

“Muller was born and raised in New York City earning his way with scholarship to Columbia where he began studying biology and genetics. In 1912 his experimental work with Drosophila (fruit flies) led to an understanding of genetic inheritance and the theory of “balanced lethals”.  Julian Huxley called Muller to come and teach at the Rice Institute in Houston from 1915 to 1918, thereafter he returned to Columbia and developed methods of quantitative mutation study. In 1920, Muller went to the University of Texas at Austin where he produced his Nobel quality work. In 1932, Hermann Muller was invited to study and teach in the USSR which he did for five years…”

Muller’s sponsor in radium work, zoologist “Julian Huxley(1887-1975); brother of Aldous and Andrew Huxley, grandsons of Thomas Henry Huxley; Julian Huxley “caused considerable controversy by advocating the deliberate physical and mental improvement of the human race through eugenics… he campaigned for the birth control movement… The Oxford-trained zoologist was hired by the new (in 1912) Rice Institute of Houston Texas as chief of its biology department (1912-1916). He returned to England to join army Intelligence, WWI… In 1946 he became the first director-general of the United Nations Educational and Scientific Organization (UNESCO)…”

read more, ; “Polio Forever” is a resource ‘notebook’ that I posted in 2010 after learning that the flu-like illness and paralysis was caused by radiation and chemicals, not viruses or germs. Visit the “X-ray and Radium” page for a timeline and more citations about the effects of radioactivity like this:

“Leukemia and Medical Radiation”, Pediatrics, Vol 23, No.6, June 1959 “Polhemums and Koch… provide new evidence that leukemia is causally related to medical radiation exposure”.

“Leukemia can also be produced, in man and mouse, by x-rays… It is tempting to speculate that the x-rays triggered the production of a latent virus, or if one chooses to look at it another way, that x-ray provoked the release from the cell of a bit of genetic material that then began to act as a virus.” [p29, Sloan Kettering report 1963]


Radium’s discoverers, Marie and Pierre Curie, were honored jointly in 1903 with a Nobel Prize shared with Henri Becquerel, for the discovery of radioactivity. It was the third staging of the prize; the first given in 1901 to Wilhelm Roentgen for X-rays.  Pierre addressed the 1903 assembly by saying, “It is possible to conceive that in criminal hands radium might prove very dangerous, and the question therefore arises whether it be to the advantage of humanity to know the secrets of nature, whether we be sufficiently mature to profit by them, or whether that knowledge may not prove harmful. Take for instance, the discoveries of Nobel –powerful explosives have made it possible for men to achieve admirable things, but they are also a terrible means of destruction in the hands of those great criminals who draw nations into war. I am among those who believe with Nobel that humanity will obtain more good than evil from future discoveries.”

You will hear Professor Campos say that the radium-using nature fakers were characterized in their own time as “mad” scientists. The overwhelming destruction and distortion of induced mutations on living things, we know, results in a loss of meaning—deletion of genetic information within the system. If there was any long-term good in it, no one could then say. The answer was out there somewhere over the rainbow bridge.

Pierre Curie, the crystallographer, subjected himself to radium experiments, famously exposing his arm until persistent suppurating wounds developed. In 1906 he was killed in the streets of Paris, caught and crushed under the wheels of a horse-drawn wagon. Marie lived until 1934, succumbing at last to leukemia. Her body and her lab notes are perpetually stored in lead casings.

Hermann Muller went on to discover great things about our chromosomes and genes, such as ‘telomeres’. Perhaps he is a superhero and not the mad scientist afterall—but you decide. Good or evil. I don’t know if Muller could actually be a model hero for super-power, but it was interesting to learn that Superman (Kal-EL) was not conceived as a good guy:

Superman was originally a bald madman created by Siegel and Shuster who used his telepathic abilities to wreak havoc on humanity. He appeared in Siegel and Shuster’s book Science Fiction.[6] Siegel then commented, “What if this Superman was a force for good instead of evil?”

Our Superman came on the comic scene in June of 1938 and got his image makeover during the first year. By 1939, he was much improved and using his vital powers, like X-ray vision, for Good. When not crippled by ‘kryptonite’ (radium) he could fly over a rainbow.  For a lot of American kids, he was the Man, whose timely appearance spirited them through the years of World War II. My dad told me that.

1939 was also a peak in entertainment for taking us over the rainbow to OZ. We arrived there in a whirlwind of a twister and followed the yellow-brick road (uranium yellow-cake anyone?) to a land of wizards; World War II was the “wizards war” and it changed things permanently, but in 1939 few of us, our parents and grandparents, would know it. Maybe we should remember that Superman was an alien, Oz was a dream, and the yellow-brick road was the “lowest lane”. Wake up now, Dotty, there’s no place like home.


Professor Campos accepted a new position at Rice University this past January 2022, no longer the NASA Chair of Astrobiology at the Library of Congress.  Susan Schneider from the University of Connecticut , for one, replaced him: NASA’s 2019-2020 chair of astrobiology at the Library went to Susan Schneider ; author of four books including the most recent  Artificial You, AI and the Future of Your Mind

Rice, at Houston, offered Campos the same essential job of coordinating coursework in the History of Science, Technology and Innovation.  He had written before that, in 2020, more about Hermann Muller and Muller’s friendships with Julian Huxley and Carl Sagan: “Genetic Sputniks, how Space Age visionaries primed us for synthetic biology”

[excerpted here] …” For Huxley’s long-time friend, the geneticist H. J. Muller,  the larger history of life on Earth and its future cosmic prospects began with the most remarkable material of heredity itself: the chromosomes. Having won the Nobel Prize for his early work showing that X-rays cause mutations in fruit flies (and by extension, in all living organisms), Muller wrote a manifesto, Out of the Night (1935), in which he predicted that modifying chromosomes would be part of the future of biology…  Muller believed that the thread of evolution and heredity could be re-woven by human hands—that life on Earth was a substrate for other possible biological futures… One day, a few years after he had won the Nobel Prize, Muller received a letter from a precocious 23-year-old by the name of Carl Sagan…the budding planetary scientist and astrobiologist… They spent their time together exchanging scientific theories and fictional visions of biological possibility, repeatedly discussing the limits of human experience and the new forms of life otherworldly environments might hold. Mars was a common theme… Buried deep in the Library of Congress is a personal copy of Muller’s Studies in Genetics, stamped ‘Compliments of the Author,’ and containing an inscription from Muller to Sagan: “Here is a record of some explorations into the universe inside—explorations of a type now as common as a voyage across the Atlantic… What a triumph it will be when we can coordinate and combine our outer and inner quests… greetings to you and yours for 1962-1963, and may we some day meet ‘in spirit’ on the tundras of Mars.’ …Muller’s dreams of biological possibilities—of life as it could be—extended from astrobiology to synthetic biology, not to mention eugenics. There were ‘new opportunities’ afoot in the 1950s, Muller felt, with ‘the strange winds that are now blowing in from the atom, the gene, and outer space.’ … Might space itself be a vast cosmic laboratory of nature’s own efforts at synthetic biology? If we might, echoing both nature and Darwin, engineer ‘endless forms of life most beautiful’ here on this planet, then what untold worlds of biodiversity might exist on habitable elsewheres?”

NASA’s Chair of Astrobiology at the Library of Congress is named for Baruch ‘Barry’ Blumberg: “Blumberg was awarded the 1976 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for discovery of the Hepatitis B virus and development of a vaccine to prevent Hepatitis B infection. He served as the NASA Astrobiology Institute director from 1999 to 2002. The institute’s mission is to promote interdisciplinary research in astrobiology, train the next generation of astrobiologists, provide scientific and technical leadership for NASA space missions, and share astrobiology’s discoveries with learners of all ages.”

Historical notes:

Radium, element 88 (isotope 226); according to this source, required ten tons of pitchblende for Marie Curie to make 1mg of radium ; Radium production in 1903 France was organized by chemist Emile Armet de Lisle with financing from Henri de Rothschild ;Various members of the James Mayer Rothschild family, of the French banking house, sponsored the work of radium production in addition to support of Louis Pasteur.

“Radioluminescent paint was invented in 1908 by Sabin Arnold von Sochocky[2][failed verificationsee discussion] and originally incorporated radium-226. Radium paint was widely used for 40 years on the faces of watches, compasses, and aircraft instruments, so they could be read in the dark.”

Circa 1913, luminous radium paint and “radium fertilizer” were generated at commodity levels; here’s a radium fertilizer booklet, published 1915 ; The US government stepped in at this point and reserved to itself all radium-bearing ores.


Tobacco and sunflowers were among the crops targeted for radium fertilizer, and both readily uptake metal contaminants— I posit that largescale dumping of DU tailings was used; According to the EPA today , any commercial fertilizer has naturally occurring radium (known as NORMs, Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials). EPA explains: “Radium radioactively decays to release radon gas, which then rises from the soil around the plants. As the plant grows, the radon from fertilizer, along with naturally-occurring radon in surrounding soil and rocks, cling to the sticky hairs on the bottom of tobacco leaves, called trichomes.”,on%20the%20bottom%20of%20tobacco%20leaves%2C%20called%20trichomes.

In Radium and the Secret of Life we see this image of tobacco plants on the cover of the 1929 Journal of Heredity.

From the Office of Human Radiation Experiments, Oral History of biophysicist Robert E. Rowland: …”There were some efforts as early as 1945, ’46, to go out to a very famous place — to us — called the Elgin State Hospital for the Mentally Insane, because at that time, there were people living there who were injected with radium in 1931 — and ultimately ’32 and ’33, we learned — as a cure for schizophrenia… well, it certainly wasn’t a successful treatment… Radium is a bone-seeker, which means it has the potential to stay in the human body a long time, and radium has a long half-life, 13 so it indicates it will stay in the human body for a long time… we didn’t know at the time they [Elgin patients] had had too much radium. But, they were right in the range where malignancies were induced. They were just perfect for the induction of malignancies…”


  Follow the yellow brick road

L.Frank Baum published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900 and went on to write a science-fiction fantasy the next year called The Master Key, an Electrical Fairy Tale which one reviewer remarks “Augured the internet, google, stun guns, TV, computers, wireless telephones…”  Baum had been a small newspaper publisher and, at the time of writing these books, was a Chicago-based reporter, surmising a well-informed status with technical advancements.

 In the Oz stories, the yellow brick road exists only in Munchkin land and not the other 3 quadrants of the kingdom—a kingdom ‘usurped’ by a charismatic wizard who flew in on a balloon, named Oscar Diggs. (Don’t those two guys in a photo with ‘radium’ flowers look like Munchkins next to the plants?) The people of Oz accepted Diggs’s leadership because they believed his arrival to be the fulfillment of a long-awaited prophecy and it was Diggs who authorized the building of the yellow brick road (YBR) and the capital of Emerald City. When Dorothy drops in on a twister, her house kills the Witch of the East and leaves only her “silver shoes” intact—the silvery metal slippers are magically flexible, protective and ‘charmed’– and with the help of a good witch, transferred to Dorothy for her journey on the YBR where she meets her companions who together test their mettle and evade the other ‘lions and tigers and bears’ —Britain, China, and Russia, perhaps. The silvery uranium metal mined in the United States became a sought-after steel alloy in the 1870s. Any ‘man of steel’ would seek its strength, but most of the uses for uranium up to those days were ancient in practice as yellow paint. If ‘yellowcake’ was the packed powder for the paint and dye trade, I couldn’t say, but Baum references his yellow bricks as painted and ‘glowing’ even in the dark, suggestive of the radium discovered in 1898.  As Radium and the Secret of Life points out, 1903 is the year radium went big –and so did the Wizard of Oz. Launched as a stage extravaganza in Chicago in 1902, it landed on Broadway in 1903, running from January to October and returning again in 1904. The wildly popular Wizard took the road and toured the US with its Broadway cast through 1911, after which Frank Baum moved his family to Los Angeles and got into the early movie business for a time before his death in 1919. Supported by a social club of boosters called the “Uplifters”, Baum and cohorts founded the Oz Film Manufacturing Company, making 5 feature-length sequels to the Wizard before their company was merged into ‘Metro’.

“The Lofty and Exalted Order of Uplifters”, founded 1913 by Harry Marston Haldeman and named by Frank Baum, was a select social unit of the Los Angeles Athletic Club. As a Theosophist Baum  “was in agreement with the Theosophical belief that man on Earth was only one step on a great ladder that passed through many states of consciousness, through many universes, to a final state of Enlightenment.”  

Radium’s flying monkeys unleashed by the West may or may not have been what Frank Baum was thinking about in 1900, but it works for me right down to the choice of color. Marie Curie, it’s said, was bewitched by the blue ‘fairy lights’ emanating from her radium crucibles—Light being it’s only proof as a residue. Radioactivity, proved on glass photo plates by the Curies’ friend Becquerel, opens another chapter of high-tech exploration besides genetics which was to become the province of movie-making.  It was a swift transition into the polymer chemistry of light-sensitive plastics from movies on celluloid that came with a ready-made industry. The famous publicly-viewed Lumiere films of 1895 were coincident with Roentgen’s x-rays and a burgeoning marketplace of advanced ideas–unlimited free energy being chief among them.  Until viewing Radium and the Secrets of Life, I hadn’t known that “radium stoves” for room warming were among the novelties, but it’s no surprise to find them among the fantasy.

Four Supreme Human Freedoms

UNESCO Courier, issue 1951

Article by Sir Robert Watson Watt. “Four Supreme Human Freedoms”

[edited]  …”the Articles of the Universal Declaration [of Human Rights] primarily delineate a solid foundation of bodily and material securities on which must rest the supreme freedoms of Articles 18, 19, 26 and 27…  I go so far as to select from within those Articles which I regard as the keystones of its arch. Article 18 declares that ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of thought –to change his belief—to manifest his belief in teaching, practice—‘, [and] Article 19 declares that ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression –to hold opinions without interferences –to seek, receive, and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers’… Article 26 declares that ‘Everyone has the right to education –directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms—to promote understanding, tolerance, and friendship.’  Article 27 [is declared as] freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.’  Article 26 is, in fact, the radical antidote to this disease of restrictive practices…”

U.N. Taking Down Private Websites

For the record, UNCTED, the counter-terrorism directorate, was initiated by a series of resolutions begun in 1998 following the bombing of two US embassies on August 7 (1998) in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. The UN has a third operating headquarters in Nairobi Kenya, in addition to New York and Geneva.

The CTEDirectorate was put in place as a working committee (CTC) on September 28, 2001 in response to 9-11, following a 5-minute convention to ratify Resolution 1373 and ‘recertified’ on March 26, 2004 which is two weeks after the Madrid train bombings (March 11, 2004)


“The United Nations Office at Nairobi, the UN headquarters in Africa, was established by the General Assembly in 1996…”


“On August 7, 1998, nearly simultaneous bombs blew up in front of the American embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Two hundred and twenty-four people died in the blasts …” There’s a handy toggle at this FBI site to compare the damages to Oklahoma City if you’re inclined.

…”The FBI was able to quickly link the attacks to bin Laden’s al Qaida organization.  In retaliation, President Clinton ordered airstrikes against sites linked to bin Laden in Sudan and Afghanistan. However, this action failed to kill bin Laden or neutralize al Qaida. In November 1998, the United States indicted bin Ladin and 21 other accomplices for the attacks…  [The Clinton Library has] materials regarding Mullah Mohammad Omar, the founder and spiritual leader of the Taliban, and Osama bin Laden. Under Omar’s direction, the Taliban provided sanctuary to al Qaida and its leader Osama bin Laden despite demands by the United Nations Security Council that he be handed over for trial for his involvement in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings… “

Here’s Clinton’s August 1998 address to the country

From here, sniff out the mission creeps… It may have something to do with the US Congress rejecting United Nations control over the internet in 2012. The UN has governance over LEO satellites and Tucows (yes, “two cows”, formerly Infonautics) was going big and wireless in 2012. According to wikipedia, Tucows, operating out of Toronto, is “the second-largest domain registrar worldwide”

About the same time in 2012, UN was ratifying its Berlin Space Protocol

*In 2012, the “PROTOCOL TO THE CONVENTION ON INTERNATIONAL INTERESTS IN MOBILE EQUIPMENT ON MATTERS SPECIFIC TO SPACE ASSETS” or Berlin Space Protocol, aiming at helping bring much-needed financial resources to the New Space community, namely those small start-up companies that have emerged as a result of the booming commercial space sector, was concluded. It constitutes the third protocol to the Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment…”

UNIDROIT –for harmonization and unification of private law—is an independent intergovernmental organization  that prepares and convenes contractual agreements. Originally established in Rome 1926 as an advisory group to the League of Nations, UNIDROIT was reorganized in 1940 to continue its work in the present. This ‘group’ will likely prepare agreements and contracts governing satellites.

In December (2-4) 2019, the UN convened to prepare cybersecurity documents as a function of its disarmament protocols, a “first ever” convention of its type, according to this Microsoft doc however, Microsoft notes that, “Discussions about the role of international law have been part of UN cybersecurity discussions since 1998. In the 2013 GGE (Group of Governmental Experts) report, 15 states’ representatives agreed that (a) international law, including the UN Charter, applies to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT); and (b) applying that law is ‘essential’ to maintaining peace and stability…”

Microsoft, a nongovernmental participant in the Group of Governmental Experts, claims its experience of the ‘threat landscape’ is one in which “We see this firsthand every day where our Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center (MSTIC) and other security teams work to analyze trillions of signals to identify…and protect our customers… Our security researchers have been able to observe trends in tactics, techniques, and processes…”


Background on automated AI surveillance begins in 1971: › index › aimagazine 

“DARPA’s pioneering research on automatic transcription, translation, and content analysis were major artificial intelligence success stories that changed science fiction into social fact. During a 40 year period, 10 seminal DARPA programs produced breakthrough capabilities that were further improved and widely deployed in popular consumer products…  [Those] programs from 1971 through 2011… demonstrate[d] systems that could recognize unrehearsed spontaneous speech from an open population, a task many of us believed was impossible in our lifetime.”

–It began with the research plan known as ‘SUR’  (Speech Understanding Research), leading to a text analysis program in 1991 called TIPSTER.

   “Since its beginning in 1991, the TIPSTER Program has sponsored multiple efforts to advance text handling technologies and deploy the resulting advanced capabilities into the workplace. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have jointly funded and managed the program, in close collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Naval Command Control Ocean Surveillance Center (NCCOSC). A TIPSTER advisory Board was recently formed with members representing users from other Government agencies interested in automated text processing, such as Department of Energy (DOE), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), National Science Foundation (NSF), Treasury Department and other Government agencies.

   “The Architecture has been designed to meet a large number of text handling requirements for CIA, DIA, and NSA… However, it meets only those requirements having to do with Document Detection and Information Extraction functions. Requirements for other functions, such as Machine Translation or Optical Character Recognition must be met outside the TIPSTER Architecture.

    “As of 1996 several TIPSTER applications were either underway or in the planning process. The most significant of these included PRIDES, ADEPT, NDIC Pilot, and Hookah. The TIPSTER User Interface Toolkit, or TUIT, is a toolkit for producing multilingual text.”

…So, this is a taste of automated AI design overriding and undermining ideas like our noble freedoms.
