what if it is 1882  that I'm really supposed to be looking at?
Here it all begins . . .
(September 4 – Thomas Edison flips the switch to the first commercial electrical power plant in history, lighting one square mile of lower Manhattan. This is considered by many as the day that began the electrical age.)

-I went looking for the the scene where the man from another place enigmatically says this,
but found this instead:

then found this:

Some have speculated that electricity is the medium that
lodge inhabitants use to enter the physical world, while
others only go as far as saying that electricity, like owls,
are an indication that lodge inhabitants are nearby.

recalled db though . . .

Jeffries: Well now, I'm not gonna talk about Judy. In fact, we're not gonna talk about Judy at all, we're gonna keep her out of it.
Cooper: [bewildered] Gordon?
Gordon: I KNOW, COOP!
Jeffries: Who do you think this is there?
Albert: Suffered some bumps on the old noggin, hey, Phil?
Jeffries: The stories that I wanna tell you about...
Albert: I've got the front desk now. He was never here.


knock yourself out with that killer.

is the Blue Fairy/Blue Star really a Blue Flower?

Laura Palmer?

 . .

is our demon electric? . . . I'm beginning to think so.

April 3 1882 – Old West outlaw Jesse James is shot in the back of the head and killed by Robert Ford.

1882 in History 

January 2Because of anti-monopoly laws, Standard Oil is organized as a trust
January 13Richard Wagner completes his opera "Parsifal"


Nikola Tesla conceives the rotating magnetic field principle and uses it to invent the alternating current generator/motor.

When the theosophist William Scott-Elliot describes life in Atlantis in The Story of Atlantis & The Lost Lemuria (first published 1896), the aircraft of the Atlanteans are propelled by Vril-force.[5] Obviously he did not regard that description as fiction, and his books are still published by the Theosophical Society.

"Her voice is full of money," he said suddenly.

That was it. I’d never understood before. It was full of money — that was the inexhaustible charm that rose and fell in it, the jingle of it, the cymbals’ song of it ... high in a white palace the king’s daughter, the golden girl....

And as I sat there, brooding on the old unknown world, I thought of Gatsby's wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night.

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter — tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning —

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominently the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-story collectionDubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). His complete oeuvre includes three books of poetry, a play, occasional journalism, and his published letters.

This Must Be The Place?

(John Granger)

"This song is featured twice in the Oliver Stone movie Wall Street, playing over a scene in which Bud Fox, the protagonist, decorates his upscale apartment, and again over the closing credits."

(The Wall of the Olive Garden--got a match?)

Seu Jorge (born June 8, 1970; Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈsew ˈʒɔʁʒi]) is a Brazilian musician, singer/songwriter and actor. Born Jorge Mário da Silva, he was raised in a favela in the city of Belford Roxo in the Baixada Fluminense region of Rio de Janeiro state. He is considered by his fans a renewer of Brazilian pop samba. Seu Jorge cites samba school, and American soul singer Stevie Wonder as major musical influences.[2]

Seu Jorge has gained exposure through his work as an actor and soundtrack composer. He appeared in the critically acclaimed 2002 film City of God as Mané Galinha, directed by filmmaker Fernando Meirelles,[3] and then played Pelé dos Santos in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, for which he provided much of the soundtrack in the form of Portuguese language cover versions of David Bowie classics.[4] Bowie later went on to say about Seu's cover album, The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions, that "had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs in Portuguese I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with."[5]

The Quaternary (This Must Be the Place)

four is one?

Does this Aleph exist in the heart of a stone? Did I see it there in the cellar when I saw all things, and have I now forgotten it? Our minds are porous and forgetfulness seeps in; I myself am distorting and losing, under the wearing away of the years, the face of Beatriz. (Borges)


This card is attributed to the letter Aleph, which means an Ox . . . Harpocrates is the God of Silence; and this silence has a very special meaning. . . . This babe is in an egg of blue, which is evidently the symbol of the Mother. This child has, in a way, not been born; the blue is the blue of space; the egg is sitting upon a lotus, and this lotus grows on the Nile. . . . Now this Ox is the letter Aleph, and is that Atu of Thoth whose number is Zero, and whose Name is Maat, Truth; or Maut, the Vulture, the All-Mother, being an Image of Our Lady Nuith, but also it is called the Fool, which is Parsifal, “der reine Thor”, and so referreth to him that walketh in the Way of the Tao. Also he is Harpocrates, the Child Horus walking (as saith Daood, the Badawi that became King, in his Psalmody) upon the Lion and the Dragon; that is, he is in Unity with his own Secret Nature . . . (Crowley)

Furthermore, Harpocrates is identified with Horus,who will "avenge his father Osiris". Harpocrates is the passive and concealed "form twin" in contrast to the active and conquering Ra-Hoor-Khuit. As "the Babe God", Harpocrates is also identified with "the New Aeon about to be born."; from the Class A text,Liber CCCLXX, Harpocrates is "hidden within him" (i.e. Horus). Contrastly, the Tarot card, Atu XX, the AEon ,shows Ra-Hoor-Khuit as being within a crowned Harpocrates. In Atu XVI, Harpocrates is identified as one of two Ayin's (eyes) that are emitted from the Tower(the other being his twin brother). (Thelemapedia)

"always wears glasses and never combs his hair" and has a "duty and an obligation never to be understood by his own generation," amongst other things.[1]

Paulo Coelho was born in Rio de JaneiroBrazil.[1] He attended a Jesuit school. As a teenager, Coelho wanted to become a writer. Upon telling his mother this, she responded with "My dear, your father is an engineer. He's a logical, reasonable man with a very clear vision of the world. Do you actually know what it means to be a writer?"[1] After researching, Coelho concluded that a writer "always wears glasses and never combs his hair" and has a "duty and an obligation never to be understood by his own generation," amongst other things.[1] At 16, Coelho's introversion and opposition to following a traditional path led to his parents committing him to a mental institution from which he escaped three times before being released at the age of 20.[2][3] Coelho later remarked that "It wasn't that they wanted to hurt me, but they didn't know what to do... They did not do that to destroy me, they did that to save me."[4]
At his parents' wishes, Coelho enrolled in law school and abandoned his dream of becoming a writer. One year later, he dropped out and lived life as a hippie, traveling through South America, North Africa, Mexico, and Europe and becoming immersed in the drug culture of the 1960s.[5][6] Upon his return to Brazil, Coelho worked as a songwriter, composing lyrics for Elis ReginaRita Lee, and Brazilian icon Raul Seixas. Composing with Raul led to Paulo being associated with satanism and occultism, due to the content of some songs.[7] In 1974, Coelho was arrested for "subversive" activities by the ruling military government, who had taken power ten years earlier and viewed his lyrics as left-wing and dangerous.[4] Coelho also worked as an actor, journalist, and theatre director before pursuing his writing career.[7]

In 1982 Coelho published his first book, Hell Archives, which failed to make any kind of impact.[7] In 1986 he contributed to the Practical Manual of Vampirism, although he later tried to take it off the shelves since he considered it “of bad quality."[7] After making the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in 1986, Coelho wrote The Pilgrimage. The following year, Coelho wrote The Alchemist and published it through a small Brazilian publishing house who made an initial print run of 900 copies and decided not to reprint.[11] He subsequently found a bigger publishing house, and with the publication of his next book BridaThe Alchemist became a Brazilian bestseller.[11] The Alchemist has gone on to sell more than 65 million copies, becoming one of the best-selling books in history, and has been translated into more than 70 languages, the 71st being Maltese, winning theGuinness World Record for most translated book by a living author.[7][12]

"R" IO?

Io: a myth about you?

We see traces of this tradition within our own English alphabet with the letter A: also the glyph for an Ox head (turned upside-down) having the same origin as the Hebrew letter aleph.

Referred to by 'occultists' as the Book of Thoth (though never adequately explained why), the key to unlocking this puzzle, as with any cryptological TooL, is knowing where to place the cypher, or sifr - the arabic word from which we also get Zero, or ‘nothing’, the rank of every Tarot deck’s Fool [aleph=0]. 
And this role proves more than suitable for One who ushers in what ultimately reveals a prank, of sorts... leading to what is arguably the greatest punch-line in history.~Yngwerz Yngweron

hope & wonder . . . 

“This movie was born out of saudade. Saudade is a Brazilian word. It roughly translates into "melancholy" but it also implies a kind of longing for a happiness that is no longer within reach, a kind of home sickness. As Andre the Brazilian musicologist says in the movie, 'it means sadness and happiness at the same time.' It is a term often used to describe Brazilian music, particularly samba and Bossa Nova. Listen to a great samba like Corcovado and you can hear the happiness and the sadness, all stirred together. In this movie I wanted to create a character, Erin, who embodied this mixed emotion, this suadade. It is her contentment with solitude along with her longing for companionship that for me makes her journey to find the right man so compelling... and funny. So, of course, Erin loves Brazilian music...”~Brad Anderson
