The Lost Sheep

United States local time February 19, the body of the 21-year-old ethnic Chinese girl Elisa Lam, who has been missing for three weeks, was found in a water tank on the roof of the Los Angeles Cecil Hotel she was staying at. According to reports, guests at the hotel had complained about low water pressure, and hotel staff found the body when they went up to check. Previously, United States police had released a hotel surveillance video clip where she exhibited frighteningly strange in the elevator during her stay at the Los Angeles hotel. This strange case sparked widespread discussion among netizens, including rumors of the hotel involved being connected to the unsolved 20th century “Black Dahlia” case. (chinaSMACK)

Transubstantiation of the Lam




"'The shower was awful,' she said. 'When you turned the tap on, the water was coming black first for two seconds and then it was going back to normal.'

When the psychics celebrate the eucharist, they "recall the Lord's death" and his passion, drinking the wine as Jesus' blood. But when the pneumatics celebrate the eucharist, they recall the Mother's passion, and drink the eucharistic wine as a symbol of her suffering. In their eucharistic invocation, the Marcosians pray that as the wine symbolizes the "blood of charis," so as they partake of the wine "grace may flow into them." (Elaine Pagels, The Gnostic Paul)


"Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened."




The Roman Catholic practice of transubstantiation is our first clue to the inside of the mystery, the inside of The Moon. The wafer and wine served in place of The Body and the Blood of Christ is called a host. . . . The term of host is interpreted in two ways: first, as the source of sustenance for a parasite, and second in its more pleasant guise as the host of a party. . . . At a good party, the host can’t have too much fun—there is a lot of work to do, and the quality of the affair is not judged from the perspective of those who must tend to its engine, but by those who are its honored guests. . . . This character is nicely summed up by Neo, the tragic hero of the Matrix Trilogy, the odd man out, for whom his moment of transcendence is an instant act of sacrificial service with very little joy to wash it down, and in its feminine posture as distaff Pirate Jenny from The Threepenny Opera of Brecht, who complains of her users, “You gentlemen can say, ‘Hey gal, finish them floors! Get upstairs! What’s wrong with you! Earn your keep here!’” Distilled to absolute purity, this pair are The Young Sophia and the grown-up Human Christ. (Mark LeClair, "Moon in the Middle," The Sync Book II)


"Waite believed the culmination of the work in his mystical Order was the marriage of the Hierophant with the Shekinah (Divine Feminine) in the inner temple found in the heart." 







The Outer Church

We must reject the false images of the Messiah as Jesus did when faced with the temptations “the Temptor presented him with,” the most serious of which is “using God for one’s own ends,” Benedict XVI said during the course of the Angelus prayer.

“When he began his public ministry – the Pope remarked – Jesus had to unmask and dismiss the Temptor’s false portrayal of the Messiah. But these temptations – he added – are also a false portrayal of man, which threaten our conscience, disguised as proposals that seem convenient, efficient and even good.”

Then came an even stronger statement: “The Temptor is devious: he does not push us towards evil directly, but towards a false good, making us believe that the real things that matter are power and whatever satisfies our primary needs,” the Pope said speaking about the temptations the Devil presented Jesus with. (Pope Benedict XVI)

False images of the Messiah: the psychic eucharist

They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: the pneumatic eucharist

The Interior Church








[Demeter] is wroth because of the rape of her daughter [Kore] and at the same time because of the marriage by rape which she herself had to undergo. In the legend that has come down to us, it is said that she was overpowered by Poseidon while she was looking for her ravished daughter. This mythological elaboration doubles the rape, for the goddess experienced the rape in herself, as Kore, and not in a separate girl. A daughter with the name of “Mistress” or “She who is not to be named” was born of this rape. The goddess becomes a mother, rages and grieves over the Kore who was ravished in her own being, the Kore whom she immediately recovers, and in whom she gives birth to herself again. The idea of the original Mother-Daughter goddess, at root a single entity, is at the same time the idea of rebirth. (Karl Kerényi, The Myth of the Divine Child and the Mysteries of Eleusis, 1969)

The lost lamb slain from the foundation of the world

De Raptu Proserpinae

And he spake this parable unto them, saying, What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. . . .  Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost. (Luke 15:3-9)


For they explain the wandering sheep to mean their mother, by whom they represent the Church as having been sown. The wandering itself denotes her stay outside of the Pleroma in a state of varied passion, from which they maintain that matter derived its origin. (Irenaeus, Adversus Haereses)














Dahlia opens the door on the rooftop and looks around. She sees that water is spilling out of the huge water tank. She climbs up the ladder and opens the hatch to the water tank.

We see Natasha's body floating in the water. . . .

The room fills up, blasting Dahlia in the face with water. The screen fades out for a couple of seconds and we come back and see the bathroom, the flood is gone. We see Dahlia's dead body on the floor, she has drowned. We then see Dahlia and Natasha holding hands as they walk into the elevator as spirits. Dahlia sacrificed herself in order to save Ceci. . . . Ceci sees a puddle of water in the corner of the elevator. Dahlia's hands reach out and holds Ceci's face. Ceci smiles back at her mom who is now a spirit. (Dark Water)

"The Labyrinth" was a technical term of the Gnosis, as may be seen from a fine Naassene Hymn, two lines of which, referring to the soul, run as follows:

    "Now is born, with no way out for her; in misery
    She enters in her wandering the Labyrinth of ills." (H. i. 191).

. . . it must be very patent to the Mystic that the Gnostic poet intended it for a certain stage of the descent of the soul, or spiritual mind, into the regions of manifestation. (G.R.S. Mead)




The killing of Hainuwele is a remarkable ritual repetition of the Kore’s rape as suffered also by Rabie, Tuwale caused Rabie to sink into the earth, or else she sank into a river or into a lake . . . One is reminded of the Sicilian scene of the Kore’s rape, Lake Pergusa, where Persephone was playing with her companions when Hades appeared and carried her off. Hainuwele’s descent into the earth is made at the ninth of the nine dancing-places, and during the ninth night of the great Maro Dance. The dance itself is the means of her descent. The men and women alternately form a huge ninefold spiral. It is a labyrinth, the original model and later the copy of the labyrinth through which men have to pass when they die in order to reach the Queen of Hades and be ordained to human existence again. Hainuwele stands in the middle of the labyrinth, where a deep hole has been dug in the earth. In the slow convolutions of the spiral dance, the dancers press closer and closer towards her and finally push her into the pit. “The loud three-voiced Maro chant drowns the maiden’s cries. They heap earth upon her, and the dancers stamp it down firmly over the pit with their dancing feet.” . . . Only thus can we see the significance of this Kore: “The buried parts of Hainuwele’s body turned into things that had not existed on earth before, above all the tuberous fruits on which mankind has chiefly lived ever since.” (Kerényi)

Babylon is fallen (seven hills of Rome, seven archons of the Hebdomad)

This is the Mystery of Babylon, the Mother of Abominations, and this is the mystery of her adulteries, for she hath yielded up herself to everything that liveth, and hath become a partaker in its mystery. And because she hath made her self the servant of each, therefore is she become the mistress of all. Not as yet canst thou comprehend her glory.

Beautiful art thou, O Babylon, and desirable, for thou hast given thyself to everything that liveth, and thy weakness hath subdued their strength. For in that union thou didst understand. Therefore art thou called Understanding, O Babylon, Lady of the Night! (12th Aethyr)

(Where are we now?)

The Hierophant of the Eucharist conjures Spirit into Matter (the consecrated host)

This is an aspect of the Eucharist which merits greater attention: in celebrating the sacrifice of the Lamb, we are united to the heavenly “liturgy” and become part of that great multitude which cries out: “Salvation to the Lamb!” (Rev 7:10). The Eucharist is truly a glimpse of heaven appearing on earth. It is a glorious ray of the heavenly Jerusalem which pierces the clouds of our history and lights up our journey . . . and plants a seed of living hope in our daily commitment to the work before us. . . (Pope John Paul II)



As the four Kabbalistic Worlds in turn became manifest during the process of Creation, each already contained within itself the potential of the structure corresponding to the Tree of Life. But in order to become functional it must be suffused with the Divine Essence.

We may envisage the Essence as running down through the various channels and filling the Sefirot, but this is slightly misleading: the Sefirotic construction cannot exist for any meaningful length of time in the absence of the Divine influence, so the Essence descends almost instantly, like a lightning flash. . . . The human soul in its prototype, or rather in its archetype, form, descended through the Paths of the Tree of Life to enter matter and animate mankind. This is the process that is known as involution. (Glyn Williams)


I see nothing to warrant Papus in supposing that it is literally the fall of Adam, but there is more in favour of his alternative--that it signifies the materialization of the spiritual word. . . . I agree rather with Grand Orient that it is the ruin of the House of We, when evil has prevailed therein, and above all that it is the rending of a House of Doctrine. I understand that the reference is, however, to a House of Falsehood. It illustrates also in the most comprehensive way the old truth that "except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it." (Arthur Waite)

In 204 BC the Romans brought the cult of Cybele, the eastern goddess of victory, from Pessina, Asia Minor, to Rome. . . . Cybele is represented by her sacred stone - 'she fell to earth as a meteor' . . . (National Gallery)





The task of man, while also affecting Male-Female union on High, involves Messianic redemption of the exiled "Sparks of Holiness" (Birur) from Tohu that are scattered within Physical existence. . . . Each indwelling spark is relatively female in relation to the person who redeems it from captivity. The collectivity of all sparks, similar to the collective People of Israel, also comprises the exiled Shekhinah, awaiting raising up to God. ("Zeir Anpin")




It came to pass then, when the rulers of the twelve æons were enraged against Pistis Sophia, who is above them, and hated her exceedingly, that the great triple-powered Self-willed, of whom I have just now told you, joined himself to the rulers of the twelve æons, and also was enraged against Pistis Sophia and hated her exceedingly, because she had thought to go to the light which is higher than her. And he emanated out of himself a great lion-faced power, and out of his matter in him he emanated a host of other very violent material emanations, and sent them into the regions below, to the parts of the chaos, in order that they might there lie in wait for Pistis Sophia and take away her power out of her, because she thought to go to the height which is above them all, and moreover she had ceased to perform their mystery, and lamented continuously and sought after the light which she had seen. And the rulers who abide, or persist, in performing the mystery, hated her, and all the guards who are at the gates of the æons, hated her also.


It came to pass then thereafter by command of the First Commandment that the great triple-powered Self-willed, who is one of the three triple-powers, pursued Sophia in the thirteenth æon, in order that she should look towards the parts below, so that she might see in that region his lion-faced light-power and long after it and go to that region, so that her light might be taken from her. (Pistis Sophia)

  7. Sibyl: Yes! You got it. In looking up, hoping to comprehend the Light, she falls into the chaos. The sky is reflected in the Dark Water. Around and around we go, up and down, involution and evolution.

    The Pope, as the Ruler of Chaos and Empire, waits there to receive the influx of supernal light; but in so doing, he will seal his own doom--the Blasted Tower is the House of False Doctrine that is overthrown.

    Paul Foster Case elucidates that the Hierophant (5) = The Magician (1) + The Emperor (4); that is, both cards are implied.

  8. I can't tell you how much the Dark Water syncs disturb me. It's too real. The Ceci/Cecil connection pushed me over the edge. I saw the movie a while back but now I'm scared to go watch it again lol.
