The Eleven: Redintegration/Redux of the Epoch-Ellipse



     


"Dave, come here and give me a hand.  We got a dead one."


"Discovering that the rose of our human fiveness is wedded to the cross of deity's sixness is the first goal of every spiritual seeker.  The next (and last) goal is for us to identify completely with our secret self and come to the full realization that we are neither truly five nor six, but a great big beautiful eleven.  This endeavor, for lack of a better name, is called the great work."
Lon Milo DuQuette

   






"The problem is not with the psychedelics, the problem is with educating people, and the way I do psychedelics is:  fairly infrequently and at quite high doses.  And in darkness, and then, this is my preference, alone.  The way not to do psychedelics is:  frequently, and at low doses, and in socially dense and complex situations because it draws energy from the thing.  There are a lot of people running around who think they have their psychedelic credentials in order who have in fact only tickled the tummy of the beast.  There are social sub-classes where you get a lot of respect if you say you're a psychedelic head, and a lot of people simply want entry into the social club.  They say, "oh yeah acid, I took a lot of acid in my time", but the question is not how much acid you took, the question is how much you took at any given time, because, when I talk about the psychedelic experience, there are thousands of altered states, you know.  Yoga, hyperventilation, toxicity, dreams, uppers, downers,  juice, there are all kinds of altered states.  The psychedelic state is very, very defined in my mind.  It is characterized by boundary dissolution, by visual hallucination…that's important.  People that say they have taken these things and never hallucinated have to go back for a retread…it doesn't count if you don't hallucinate.  They're hallucinogens, remember?  Its a very specific thing that they do.  I don't even care for the dissassociative anesthetics like ketamine.   I don't care for opium.  I don't care for cocaine, I mean I've done all these things, but they're not interesting."
Terence McKenna

redintegration (plural redintegrations)
  1. (rare) Restoration to a whole or sound state.
  2. (chemistry, obsolete) Restoration of a mixture to its former nature and state.
  3. (psychology) The reinstatement of a memory upon the presentation of a stimulus element that was a part of the stimulus complex that had aroused the event.


The great literary example of redintegration is Marcel Proust's novel Remembrance of Things Past. The conceit is that the entire seven-volume novel consists of the memories triggered by the taste of a madeleine soaked in lime tea. "I had recognized the taste of the crumb of madeleine soaked in her concoction of lime-flowers which my aunt used to give to me. Immediately the old grey house upon the street, where her room was, rose up like the scenery of a theatre to attach itself to the little pavilion, opening on to the garden, which had been built out behind it for my parents"

Interviews with co-writer Michael Herr, revealed that the concept of Carl Jung’s the shadow was always a core aspect of FMJ’s story structure. In this respect the vague depiction of NVA as distant silhouettes is a metaphor that the Lusthog squad are unknowingly fighting parts of themselves, such as the infantile and the feminine, which were deeply repressed during training.

When the Lusthogs are outside the cinema they are sat on rows of red cinema seats that have been dragged out and scattered onto the streets.

Symbolically the Lusthogs are actually inside the cinema and are sat at the back row of seats with the exit behind them. The Hue cityscape that we see is simply the fantasy war movie which they have been both watching and acting in. . . . So what appears to be an entrance to the cinema is more likely a symbolic exit from the Lusthogs fantasy world. This would also mean that the prostitute was actually picked up inside the cinema and taken outside . . .

Whenever the Lusthogs radio in to their commanders they are speaking to Kubrick himself, who played the role of Murphy, and whose transmitted voice we faintly hear. They refer to this commanding radio source as "Delta Six Actual". As the film's director it is Kubrick who refuses to send tanks during the sniper battle. (Rob Ager)

'I Am Become Death'
This is a quotation from the Bhagavad-Gita, spoken by J. Robert Oppenheimer after the explosion of the first atomic bomb at Alamogordo.




While J. Robert Oppenheimer was in New Mexico experimenting with the bomb, another scientist by the name of Dr. Albert Hoffman was experimenting with another very different kind of bomb, one that would also affect the world quite profoundly. While the A-bomb was being tested so was the first form of LSD. In 1943, Hoffman took his first "hit" and was so dramatically affected, he dedicated his career to further understanding its effect. Finally isolating psilocybin from the mushrooms, he created LSD.

The scene at the beginning with Captain Willard alone in his hotel room was completely unscripted. Martin Sheen told the shooting crew to just let the cameras roll. 





Sheen was actually drunk in the scene and punched the mirror which was real glass. Sheen also began sobbing and tried to attack Francis Ford Coppola. The crew was so disturbed by his actions that they wanted to stop shooting, but Coppola wanted to keep the cameras going.

XVI. THE TOWER [OR: WAR] 

This card is attributed to the letter Peh, which means a mouth; it refers to the planet Mars. In its simplest interpretation it refers to the manifestation of cosmic energy in its grossest form. The picture shows the destruction of existing material by fire. It may be taken as the preface to Atu XX, the Last Judgment, i.e., the Coming of a New Aeon. . . .

At the bottom part of the card, therefore, is shown the destruction of the old-established Aeon by lightning, flames, engines of war. In the right-hand corner are the jaws of Dis, belching flame at the root of the structure. Falling from the tower are broken figures of the garrison. It will be noticed that they have lost their human shape.
They have become mere geometrical expressions.

This suggests another (and totally different) interpretation of the card. To understand this, it is necessary to refer to the doctrines of Yoga, especially those most widely current in Southern India, where the cult of Shiva, the Destroyer, is paramount. Shiva is represented as dancing upon the bodies of his devotees. To understand this is not easy for most western minds. Briefly, the doctrine is that the ultimate reality (which is Perfection) is Nothingness. Hence all manifestations, however glorious, however delightful, are stains. To obtain perfection, all existing things must be annihilated. The destruction of the garrison may therefore be taken to mean their emancipation from the prison of organized life, which was confining them. It was their unwisdom to cling to it. The above should make it clear that magical symbols must always be understood in a double sense, each contradictory of the other. These ideas blend naturally with the higher and deeper significance of the card. . . .

[For this reason the ancient title, to-day not very intelligible, has been retained. Otherwise, it might have been called War.] (Aleister Crowley)


Sound is an evolute of Prakriti  and subject to creation and dissolution. The sound of 
ॐ (Om, also spelled A-U-M) has 4 parts: ओ (A, pronounced as "awe") represents Brahma, the creative aspect of God; ३ (U, pronounced as "oo" in tooth) represents Vishnu, the sustaining energy of God; and म् (M, pronounced as "m" in um) represents Shiva, the destructive energy of God. These 3 energies change according to the cycle of creation and dissolution of the manifest universe, whereas the forth aspect of ॐ, which is the half of the mora 

of Om, represents the eternal, absolute, immutable, transcendent knowledge. It is a sound beyond the three, and is vocalized in the continuing nasal reverberation of the sound Om.


"Daäth—Knowledge—is not a Sephira. It is not on the Tree of Life: that is, there is in reality no such thing.
Of this thesis there are many proofs. The simplest (if not the best) is perhaps as follows:
All knowledge may be expressed in the form S=P
But if so, the idea P is really implicit in S; thus we have learnt nothing.
And, of course, if not so, the statement is simply false.
Now see how we come at once to paradox. For the thought "There is no such thing as knowledge," "Knowledge is a false idea," or however it may be phrased, can be expressed as S=P: it is itself a thing known.
In other words, the attempt to analyse the idea leads immediately to a muddle of the mind.
But this is of the essence of the Occult Wisdom concerning Daäth. For Daäth is the crown of the Ruach, the Intellect; and its place is in the Abyss. That is, it breaks into pieces immediately it is examined.
There is no coherence below the Abyss, or in it; to obtain this, which is one of the chief canons of Truth, we must reach Neschamah... Crowley http://hermetic.com/crowley/little-essays-towards-truth/knowledge.html

Something in the way...


(Kubrick married this woman: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christiane_Kubrick)


The girl is introduced by the tavern keeper as "our latest acquisition from the enemy...from Germany, the land of the Hun!" She is "a little pearl washed ashore by the tide of war" who has "a little natural talent" (he gestures over her physical curves) and "she can sing like a bird - she has a throat of gold." Dax recognizes companions of the executed men and is disappointed by their apparent lustful callousness shortly following the death of their own comrades. In front of the raucous troops, the timid and fragile young girl - with tears on her cheeks - begins to sing a ballad - in German. [It is a universally-known folk song of love in war, called "The Faithful Soldier" - (La Treue Hussar (Fr.) or Der treue Hussar (Ger.)).] It is a simple, sweet song that is inaudible until the audience quiets down and listens intently and respectfully to her plaintive voice. Soon, hers is the only voice in the tavern: 


(loosely translated, in part) 

A faithful soldier, without fear,
He loved his girl for one whole year,
For one whole year and longer yet,
His love for her, he'd ne'er forget.

This youth to foreign land did roam,
While his true love, fell ill at home.
Sick unto death, she no one heard.
Three days and nights she spoke no word.

And when the youth received the news,
That his dear love, her life may lose,
He left his place and all he had,
To see his love, went this young lad...

He took her in his arms to hold,
She was not warm, forever cold.
Oh quick, oh quick, bring light to me,
Else my love dies, no one will see...

Pallbearers we need two times three,
Six farmhands they are so heavy.
It must be six of soldiers brave,
To carry my love to her grave.

A long black coat, I must now wear.
A sorrow great, is what I bear.
A sorrow great and so much more,
My grief it will end nevermore.


"Eye'm afraid Dave"
Alice's dream as it appears in the original screenplay of Eyes Wide Shut:


'I think it started in my parents house. They weren’t there. I was alone. That surprised me because our wedding was the next day and I didn’t have a wedding dress. Then you and I were floating above a ancient city. It was a kind of crazy mix of ancient architectural styles. Oriental, Egyptian, Greek and Roman architecture. And it was completely deserted. The streets were empty–no people, no animals. And I remember thinking, so this is our honeymoon. Then it was night and the sky was so full of stars, and so blue and wide it seemed like it was painted. You said it was the ceiling of our bridal chamber and you took me in your arms and made love to me and said you would love me forever…We made love and it was wonderful, though there was a sadness to it, and a presentment of sorrow. Suddenly it was morning and we were somewhere in the strange city. We were still completely alone. But something terrible had happened–our clothes were gone. I was terrified as I had never been before, and felt such a burning shame that it almost consumed me. At the same time I was furious with you because I thought it was your fault. And this sensation of terror, shame and fury was more intense than any emotion I had ever felt before. You felt guilty and rushed away naked, to go and get clothes for us.

As soon as you were gone I felt wonderful. I neither felt sorry for you, or worried about you. It was heavenly to be alone. I was lying in a lush garden, stretched out naked in the sunlight, and I was far more beautiful than I ever was in reality. And while I lay there, a young man walked out of the woods. He was the young Naval officer I told you about from the hotel. He looked different but I knew it was him. He stopped in front of me and looked at me searchingly. I laughed seductively and wantonly, as I have never laughed in my life, and he held out his arms to me and sank down beside me…
He looked at me…and slowly took me in his arms…and we began making love. I seemed to live through countless days and nights–there was neither time nor space. And the more we made love the more our hunger for each other increased. And just as that earlier feeling of terror and shame went beyond anything I had ever felt, so nothing can be compared with the freedom and happiness and the…desire that I now felt. Then I realized there were other couples around us–hundreds of them, and they too were making love. Then I was making love to the other men, and as soon as my longing was satisfied with one, I wanted another. I can’t say how many I was with. And yet I didn’t for one moment forget you. And all this time, you were buying the most beautiful clothes and jewelery you could find for me.

                                                                                                         Then you were being followed by a crowd of people who were shouting threats. Then you were seized by soldiers, and there were also priests among them. Somebody, a gigantic person, tied your hands. You were still naked. I knew you were going to be crucified but I felt no sympathy for you. I still blamed you for everything that had happened. I felt that I was far removed from you but I knew you could see me naked in the arms of countless men in this sea of nakedness which foamed around me. The soldiers began to whip you and blood flowed down you in streams. I saw it without feeling any surprise or pity. Then you smiled at me as if to show you had fulfilled my wish and bought me everything I wanted. But I thought your actions were ridiculous and I wanted to make fun of you, to laugh in your face. They began to nail you to the cross and I hoped that you would be able to hear my laughter. And so I laughed as shrill and loud as I could. That must have been the laugh that you heard when I woke up.'

Death cards were used as a psychological weapon in such conflicts like in Vietnam, but they didn’t work on the NVA. So the idea for this comes from a scene in the Vietnam film “Apocalypse Now”.

New International Version (NIV)
9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).
In Crowley's system the Kings have become the Knights, for they are the slaves who have taken the Golden Bough in their hands and challenged the King.
Knight of Swords:
"The Knight of Swords represents the fiery part of Air; he is the wind the storm. He represents the violent power of motion applied to an apparently manageable element. He rules from the 21st degree of Taurus to the 20th degree of Gemini. He is a warrior helmed, and for his crest he bears a revolving wing. Mounted upon a maddened steed, he drives down the Heavens, the Spirit of the Tempest. In one hand is a sword, in the other a poniard. He represents the idea of attack. "
Aleister Crowley
Riders on the Storm

"The Knight of Swords is fire of air, suggestive of a violent wind.  The general divinatory meaning of the card can be summed up in one word - attack. 'The moral qualities of person thus indicated,' Crowley warned, 'are activity and skill, subtlety and cleverness. He is fierce, delicate and courageous but altogether the prey of his idea, which comes to him as an inspiration without reflection'.
Famous Knights of Swords include Baron Münchausen, Arthur Conan Doyle, Pope John Paul II, Malcolm X, Queen Victoria, John Wayne, John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and Cher."

The Self, through its many emotionally intense deaths and resurrections, becomes victorious in beauty, and beautiful in the victories it overcomes. On a Divine level, the expressions of the Divine incarnation need to die to that realm in order that death be vanquished.

The tale of Osiris becoming fish-like is cognate with the story the Greek shepherd god Pan becoming fish like from the waist down in the same river Nile after being attacked by Typhon (see Capricornus). This attack is part of a generational feud in which both Zeus and Dionysus were dismembered by Typhon, in a similar manner as Osiris is by Set in Egypt.

Red Rum (bay gelding; 3 May 1965 - 18 October 1995; sire: Quorum, dam: Mared) was a champion Thoroughbred racehorse who achieved an unmatched historic treble when he won the Grand National in 1973, 1974 and 1977, and also came second in the two intervening years. As well as his unprecedented record in the world-famous steeplechase, a notoriously difficult race that has been referred to as being "the ultimate test of a horse’s courage", Red Rum was also renowned for his remarkable jumping ability (he fell only once in over 100 races).

(Red Rose)
Red Rum's 1973 comeback victory from 30 lengths behind is often considered one of the greatest Grand Nationals in history. In a 2002 UK poll, Red Rum's historic third triumph in the Grand National was voted the 24th greatest sporting moment of all time.

"Eleven years after his death, a survey found he remained the best-known racehorse in the UK. When asked to name an equine animal, Red Rum was named by 45% of Britons, with Black Beauty in second with 33%".

In March of l929 the whole trio got kicked out of Paris. Crowley was kicked out for allegedly being a  spy and drug addict. His girlfriend Marie and Regardie got the boot for associating with him. Nor could Regardie enter England for the same reason--he was considered undesirable because of his relationship with Aleister. For awhile he had to remain in Brussels. Eventually Crowley could no longer afford to keep Regardie as his secretary.
In l937 the two men had a big cat fight for reasons far more complicated than can be sorted out on these pages. Regardie apparently was eclipsing his master in successful publications.Regardie sent Crowley a copy of a recent publication and a kind note. Aleister responded by making fun of the name "Francis" which Israel had recently added. Israel then responded with his famous "Dear Alice, You really are a contemptible bitch" letter. Aleister responded with a scurrilous letter about Regardie, accusing him of everything from ingratitude to masturbation. And Aleister sent his letter to all of Regardie's acquaintances! (Ref.

George Lucas was originally set to direct "Apocalypse Now" from a screenplay by John Milius. Lucas' initial plan was to shoot the movie as a faux documentary on location in South Vietnam while the war was still in progress. Francis Ford Coppola, who was to be the executive producer, tried to get the film made as part of a production deal with Warner Bros. The deal fell through, and Coppola went on to direct The Godfather. By the time both men were powerful enough to get the film made, Saigon had fallen and Lucas was busy making Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Milius had no interest in directing the film. Lucas gave Coppola his blessing to direct the film himself.
The character played by Harrison Ford wears a name badge that reads "Lucas".
Martin Sheen's character name combines the names of the two eldest sons of Harrison Ford, Benjamin and Willard.

“I could see where things were headed,” Kurtz said. “The toy business began to drive the [Lucasfilm] Empire. It’s a shame. They make three times as much on toys as they do on films. It’s natural to make decisions that protect the toy business, but that’s not the best thing for making quality films.”
He added: “The first film and ‘Empire’ were about story and character, but I could see that George’s priorities were changing.”

In the Documentary on the making of Hedwig and the Angry Inch Hedwig's wig is likened to the Ring of The Lord of the Rings
 

The W of Wig is pronounced like V

The Origin of Love is based on Plato's Symposium:
Osiris is not only a merciful judge of the dead in the afterlife, but also the underworld agency that granted all life, including sprouting vegetation and the fertile flooding of the Nile River. He is described as the "Lord of love"



The first lines of HedW(V)ig:
"Don't you know me, Kansas City? 
I'm the new Berlin Wall. 
Try and tear me down! 
I was born on the other side Of a town ripped in two 
I made it over the Great Divide 
Now I'm coming for you Enemies and adversaries 
They try and tear me down You want me, baby, 
I dare you Try and tear me down 
I rose from off of the doctor's slab Like Lazarus from the pit 
Now everyone wants to take a stab And decorate me Blood, graffiti, and spit 
Enemies and adversaries 
They try and tear me down You want me, baby, 
I dare you Try and tear me down. 
On August a wall was erected down the middle of the city of Berlin. The world was divided by a cold war, and the Berlin Wall was the most hated symbol of that 
divide. Reviled, graffiti'd, spit upon. We thought the wall would stand forever. And now that it's gone, we don't know who we are anymore. Ladies and gentlemen, 
Hedwig is like that wall, standing before you in a divide between East and West. Slavery and freedom. Man and woman. Top and bottom. And you can try and tear her down, but before you do, you must remember one thing! Ain't much of a difference Between a bridge and a wall Without me right in the middle, babe Wow!..."

In W(V)illhelm Reich's Mass Psychology of Fascism:

"In this, the swastika appears as a symbol of the stormy sky, the diamond as symbol of the fertile soil. Smigorski found the swastika in the form of the East Indian swastika cross as a four-pronged lightning bolt with three points at each prong, as follows: Lichtenberg found swastikas with a head in place of the three points.
The swastika, then, was originally a sexual symbol. In the course of time, it took on diverse meanings, among others that of a mill-wheel, that is, of work. The original emotional identity of work and sexuality explains a finding of Bilmans and Pengerots on the mitre of Saint Thomas à Becket. It is a swastika with the following inscription: „Hail, Earth, mother of man. Grow great in the embrace of God, fruitful to nourish mankind“. Here, fertility is represented sexually as sexual intercourse between Mother Earth and God-Father. According to Zelenin, swastikas, in old Indian language, means cock as well as voluptuary; again an unequivocally sexual meaning of swastika.
A look at the swastikas on page 86 will show them to be a schematic but unmistakable presentation of two intertwined human bodies. The swastika at left represents a sexual act in recumbent position, the one at the right in the standing position. That is, the swastika represents a basic living function.
This effect of the swastika on unconscious emotional life is, of course, not the reason for the success of fascist mass propaganda; but it is a potent stimulant. Random tests with people of either sex and of various ages and social position showed that only very few people failed to recognize the meaning of the swastika; most people recognized it sooner or later. 
It can be safely assumed that this symbol which represents two intertwined bodies is a powerful stimulus to deep-seated emotional strivings
the more powerful the more unsatisfied and sexually longing the individual is. If the symbol, in addition, is presented as the symbol of honor and faithfulness, it is all the more easily accepted because then it also draws in the sex-defensive moralistic tendencies. It would be entirely erroneous to conclude from these findings that one should try to diminish the effectiveness of the symbol by disclosing its sexual meaning. First, we do not want to depreciate the sexual act. Second, the reaction to such an attempt would be mostly negative since the moral disguise would act as a defense against our attempt. The way of sex-economic mental hygiene is different."

'And the Children of the Moon looked like a fork shoved on a spoon'

Hedwig and Tommy:

'Fire shot down from the sky in bolts Like shining blades of a knife And it ripped right through the flesh Of the children Of the sun and the moon and the earth And some lndian god Sewed the wound up into a hole Pulled it round to our bellies To remind us of the price we pay 
And Cyrus... 
Wait, did you sing "the Cyrus"? No, no-- You just sang "the Cyrus" on that recording. The Cyrus, Cyrus. Cyrus the god. There's no god called "Cyrus." It's "Osiris," it's an Egyptian god. - We read that book-- - We had two versions of that song. - We had one version-- - No, we had two versions-- --and you fucked it up! I know. Maybe... maybe we could jam sometime? Maybe we could. ...Was the same as the one down in mine That's the pain that Cuts a straight line down through the heart We called it love'

Cyrus II of Persia (Old Persian: Kuruš (c. 600 BC or 576 BC–530 BC), commonly known as Cyrus the Great, also known as Cyrus the Elder, was the founder of the Achaemenid Empire. Under his rule, the empire embraced all the previous civilized states of the ancient Near East, expanded vastly and eventually conquered most of Southwest Asia and much of Central Asia, parts of Europe and the Caucasus. From the Mediterranean sea and Hellespont in the west to the Indus River in the east, Cyrus the Great created the largest empire the world had yet seen. He also pronounced one of the first historically important declarations ofhuman rights via the Cyrus Cylinder sometime between 539-530 BCE.

The reign of Cyrus the Great lasted between 29 and 31 years. Cyrus built his empire by conquering first the Median Empire, then theLydian Empire and eventually the Neo-Babylonian Empire. Either before or after Babylon, he led an expedition into central Asia, which resulted in major campaigns that were described as having brought "into subjection every nation without exception". Cyrus did not venture into Egypt, as he himself died in battle, fighting the Massagetae along the Syr Darya in December 530 BC...
The name Cyrus is a Latinized form derived from a Greek form of the Old Persian Kūruš. The name and its meaning has been recorded in ancient inscriptions in different languages. The ancient Greek historians Ctesias and Plutarch noted that Cyrus was named from Kuros, the Sun, a concept which has been interpreted as meaning "like the Sun" by noting its relation to the Persian noun for sun, khor, while using -vash as a suffix of likeness. Karl Hoffmann has suggested a translation based on the meaning of an Indo-European-root "to humiliate" and accordingly "Cyrus" means "humiliator of the enemy in verbal contest." In the Persian language and specially in Iran, Cyrus's name is spelled as "کوروش بزرگ" or "Kūrošé Bozorg" which translates to Cyrus the Great. In the Bible, he is known as Koresh (Hebrew: כורש‎)

CIRUS reactor

CIRUS (Canada India Research Utility Services) is a research reactor at the Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC) in Trombay near Mumbai, India. CIRUS was supplied byCanada in 1954, but uses heavy water (deuterium) supplied by the United States. It is the second oldest reactor in India. It is modeled on the Canadian Chalk River National Research X-perimental (NRX) reactor.The 40 MW reactor burns natural uranium fuel, while using heavy water as a moderator. It is a tank reactor type with a core size of 3.14 m (H) × 2.67 m (D). It first went critical July 10, 1960.

The reactor is not under IAEA safeguards (which did not exist when the reactor was sold), although Canada stipulated, and the U.S. supply contract for the heavy water explicitly specified, that it only be used for peaceful purposes. Nonetheless, CIRUS has produced some of India's initial weapon plutonium stockpile, as well as the plutonium for India's 1974 Pokhran-I (Codename Smiling Buddha) nuclear test, the country's first nuclear test. At a capacity factor of 50–80%, CIRUS can produce 6.6–10.5 kg of plutonium a year.


CIRUS was shut down in September 1997 for refurbishment and was scheduled to resume operation in 2003. The reactor was brought back into operation two years late in 2005. During refurbishing, a low-temperature vacuum evaporation-based desalination unit was also coupled to the reactor to serve as demonstration of using waste heat from a research reactor for sea desalination. Even if the reactor has a life of twenty more years, India had declared that this reactor would be shut down by 2010 in accordance with the Indo-US nuclear accord reached between Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and US President George W. Bush. The reactor was shut down on 31 December 2010
Vernon Howell filed a petition in California State Superior Court in Pomona on May 15, 1990, to legally change his name "for publicity and business purposes" to David Koresh. On August 28, 1990, Judge Robert Martinez granted the petition.The name Koresh is a transliteration of the Hebrew word for "belly". It is also a transliteration of the Persian name of Cyrus (Modern Persian: کوروش, Kurosh), the Persian king, who allowed the Jews - who had been dispersed throughout Babylonia - by Nebuchadnezzar to return to their homelands. His first name, David, symbolized a lineage directly to the biblical King David, from whom the new messiah would descend. By taking the name of David Koresh, he was "professing himself to be the spiritual descendent of King David, a messianic figure carrying out a divinely commissioned errand."


'In late Egyptian thought, the righteous dead were sometimes said to become the stars, and thus the moon was occasionally seen as having a connection to Osiris, lord of the dead. As a death and resurrection legend, in which evil seeks to destroy a deity, thus bringing darkness, it thus developed an association with the lunar cycle, in which the moon appears to be destroyed by darkness, and is then brought back to life. Thus it later became said that Osiris had been killed by being dismembered into 13 parts, each part representing one of the 13 full moons seen each year (there are roughly 13 lunar months per year). Another interpretation is that the pieces were 14 (they number up to sixteen in some versions) were the phases of a single moon's cycle (one sliver cut off each night for 14 days, then reassembled over the next 14 days—see Janet McCrickard, Eclipse of the Sun, 1990). The original form of Set's murder of Osiris was incorporated into this later version, though it was said that the attempt had failed when Isis and Nepthys found the coffin and rescued it.
Consequently, the story became that before resurrecting Osiris, Isis put together 13 of the 14 parts, but was unable to find the 14th, his phallus, which was eaten by the oxyrhynchus fish (a fish with an unusual curved snout resembling depictions of Set). So Isis created a phallus for him, and then attempted to revive him. In some versions, Isis sang a song around Osiris until he came back to life. She then took the form of a kite and flew around his body in order to conceive Horus. In other tellings of the story, Isis grows wings and hovers over Osiris. She breathes life into him in order to revive him and conceive Horus. Being simultaneously alive and dead, Osiris became the god and king of the afterlife.'-wiki
     Ptah-Seker (who resulted from the identification of Ptah as Seker), who is god of re-incarnation, thus gradually became identified with Osiris, the two becoming Ptah-Seker-Osiris. As the sun is thought to spend the night in the underworld, and subsequently be re-incarnated, as both king of the underworld, and god of reincarnation, Ptah-Seker-Osiris is identified.
