Joy Division (Slayer and Slain)

This week has produced certain events which perhaps warrant attention, being the culmination of incidents in the preceding months--events largely foreshadowed by this year's Oscar winners.

Christopher Dorner (Osiris is a black god) sought to overthrow the External Law, of which he was a part while he wrought the works of the flesh, but only slew himself. This is a contrived scenario as part of an unfolding Egyptian Mystery-Play. The Argo was called the ship of Osiris. Dorner is Osiris locked in the Argo of Big Bear, there to be sacrificed in the flames. Snow on the Road as the Bear has her hounds of Hades at the ready for Actaeon. Seth MacFarlane is Set chopping him to pieces.

Lamentations of Isis

"Isis reared the little one by putting her finger into its mouth, and that at night she burnt round the mortal [elements] of its body, and, turning herself into a swallow, flew round the pillar and twittered a dirge . . ."

This is why events unnerve me,
They find it all, a different story,
Notice whom for wheels are turning,
Turn again and turn towards this time,
All she ask's the strength to hold me,
Then again the same old story,
World will travel, oh so quickly,
Travel first and lean towards this time.

In his Exegesis Philip K. Dick makes the important point that he had somehow activated a sacred narrative that unfolded itself in a way akin to a pre-written computer program. 
The sacred history itself forms a narrative that can be discerned, but it is obscured by the normal flux. Everything is written down and has been written down from the beginning, as the Jews knew from the disclosure of the Torah. Basically, sacred history exists as information; first in terms of temporal sequence; first in order of ontology. The mythic ritual is an entry key into the sacred narrative. It functions the way an entry key of a computer functions vis-à-vis a given program.

This narrative can be entered from any point in mundane time by the correct entry key which in itself tells a story or a part of a story—part of the master narrative (which, as I say, is information out of which reality is generated). What interests me is the apparent fact that there are a number of sacred narratives, not one, so that different entry keys—which is to say different mythic rites—punch you into different narratives, which is to say different meta-realities. For example, Christianity is only one "narrative" of many; the war between the Empire and its prisoner (who in early chapters is crucified but later on is released unharmed)—this is not the sacred narrative but a sacred narrative.(PKD, Exegesis)

This narrative is the TORA held by the High Priestess of the Tarot. ROTA TARO ORAT TORA ATOR:  "The Wheel of Tarot speaks the Law of Hathor." Anne Hathaway is Hathor Way, the bride of Shakespeare (the Monomyth Monolith), who hands over (paradidomi) Batman to Bane when the storm comes in and the dark night rises. Will you enter the sordid Mystery, or merely watch as a series of kaleidoscopic but ultimately illusory images (that is, meaningless, precisely because they are loaded with meaning) flit across the surface of the screen? Is this a New Order Ceremony, devised to catch the conscience of the King? It is the Dark-Haired Girl with the pink light who activates PKD's narrative; but as we learned from Les Misérables, the High Priestess is really a dead prostitute.

The Judas mystery: "The Knight of Wands represents the fiery part of Fire; he rules from the 21St degree of Scorpio to the 20th degree of Sagittarius." . . . "Scorpio has not just two symbols but three: the Scorpion, the Eagle and the Phoenix. The Phoenix represents death and rebirth." The sign of Scorpio ends on November 22.

A fire at the John F. Kennedy presidential library in Boston more than an hour after the blasts, initially treated by investigators as related, appeared be caused by a simple electrical short, police said. . . . The race drew 27,000 runners and has been run since 1897 on Patriots Day, the third Monday in April, which commemorates Lexington and Concord, the two battles in Massachusetts that started the American Revolution. (ABC News)

Meanwhile, Girl on Fire Jennifer toils under the Law-rence, having emptied herself out to become a servant of all: April 15 (the date of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln) saw the release of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer, to be released November 22 (the date of the assassination of John F. Kennedy). As PKD's torturous VALIS narrative unfolds inevitably, some learn to play the Game, while the less fortunate become mulch for the Empire.  

As the Wizard makes his "Marathon Hoax" post, this trailer is released, as if to say yes, none of this is fair, the Empire and its hierarchy is persistent in telling you that you have sinned, and your hard-fought efforts for liberation today get recycled and fed back to you as tomorrow's commercial pabulum (praying to the light machine). So, how am I to argue, when the Magic Mirror on the Wall condemns itself with its own tools, as it always does? The idol betrays our senses; it declares Snow White to be the fairest of all things in the exo world. Lilith is overthrown by her own instruments; instead of appeasing her vanity, it exalts she who wields the arrows. The Moon is a mirror of the future. If it were not so, all of this would be in vain.
Here is an antithesis created: the suffering of the sheep is absolutely awful and to be abhorred, and the painting produced is absolutely beautiful. But this is not presented as a choice but as a fact: this is how you get such a painting. Still, I deplore it in the dream, so I feel it is not justified: this torture is not justified even by the picture produced. So my emotional sympathy—agape—outweighs my aesthetic response, however profound the latter. . . . There is no end justification for such dreadful means. . . . Most awful of all, the Godhead stands as self-damned by its own verdict of guilt for the suffering it has imposed on the ontogons. (Dick)
But--we're still here, aren't we? And who are "we"? Is there a way out? A spark to ignite something more permanent than these fleeting images?

Anne Frank the Dead Girl as personification of the Community of Israel in Exile is a Belieber hooked on the External King (the Hierophant) and not a Knower of herself. Her diary (the Law as the Princess Diaries) is a record of fascism. To see the Black Fire of the endless madness and division of the Father is simple enough, as detailed on a thousand different conspiracy videos; to see the White Fire at the edges of consciousness is more difficult. (Those who wish to be entertained will be entertained, nothing more--meanwhile, James-James Holmes keeps shooting the audience.) The priest dispenses bite-sized chunks to babes and sucklings, yet the Church as the Faithful is really Sophia (the sheep).

To grasp the fruit of self-Gnosis is the only truly revolutionary act.

Room 238

Do you see the Heh, Vau, Heh?

I worry that there is no way to address this without it seeming insensitive to the victims, but the Kabbalistic import of the Boston Marathon event should at least be acknowledged:
  • Binah: Krystle Campbell (the Dark Crystal of Jospeh Campbell's Monomyth-Monolith)
  • Tiphareth: Martin Richard (the Son)
  • Malkuth: Lu Lingzi (the China Girl in the water tower/Watertown)

The beastly boy makes the dark-haired girl's blast into two blasts (water-water). Every element in the story appears to have been strangely detailed in MoG before it happened, and thus can be used as a key to decode it. Even the name--"dZhOkHAR Shine On."

(Patriots' Day)

The two Elvis impersonators send ricin to the two Wicker Kings. These are slayer and slain at once (Suicide Kings) in white and black hats on the road to Grace Land. Mercy and Severity are the two arms of the King--the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

(Water-water everywhere: Nick Cave in Tupelo vs. Nic Cage in Wicker Man)

Wicker Men as Tupelo Twin Kings will collect together Nuit the hungry girl's divided body with their sacrifice. Enki @ Twilight Language: "The [Texas] explosion took place at 1471 Jerry Mashek Drive. Mashek means descendant of Thomas (twin). Elvis Presley had a twin brother who died at birth, and the suspect in the mailing of ricin-laced letters to Senator Wicker, Paul Kevin Curtis, was in an Elvis tribute act with his brother." 

The Tree of Knowledge: Coke or Pepsi?

No one wanted to listen to me before.
There are still 'Missing Pieces'
Maybe I have your attention now
Even if that means someone must die.
This must stop.

Set with the missing body parts of Osiris. But in truth, the division was already present, and Osiris was already dead; Set merely brings it into consciousness. (In story form, if not in reality.) 

Do you see the division in the Tree, or are your eyes still wide shut? Bombs at the LensCrafters--Genesis 3:5.
By reason of one or another cause, she decided to taste the fruit, which had the faculty of opening the eyes, in those who approached it, in respect of things concerning the Tree itself. The result was a division between life and death, as if the peace-insuring Middle Pillar had been removed from the Sephirotic Tree . . . another tradition certifies that Eve pressed grapes and gave the juice to her husband. The opening of their eyes was to behold all the ills of the world. (Arthur Waite, The Zohar)

Snow White and the Huntsman (death-apples are eaten)

The finish line is not reached and we again are exiled from Eden.

Forget it, Jack . . .

Chechen check-in (China Girls under the sync)

And meanwhile, Jodi Arias as Isis (Snow White) cut Osiris (Prince Charming) into 29 pieces. (Sophia and Judas are co-conspirators after a certain manner--where's the extra piece of silver in the Nile?) Eve eats first of the fruit of the Tree. Jesus breaks bread and gives it to Judas, who receives 30 pieces of the Moon for his trouble and a career trajectory that mirrors that of Ian Curtis. MASSachusetts = using a weapon of MASS destruction (breaking the eucharist).

In Winter's Bone Jennifer Lawrence (Isis) is searching for her Father's (Osiris') body in the Oz-arks. He gets killed (by Set) after turning snitch (repentance leads to death). In the end she finds him in the Dark Water and has to chop him into pieces in order to appease the authorities and keep the House. That is, Osiris was already dead in the water when Isis cut him up--she just needed to prove it and make it official.

The Battle of Marathon was fought against Persians/Iranians, the subject of Affleck's Argo. A character named "Darius" (leader of Persia) appears in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. He is turned into a mute and is dismembered. An encounter with the Other, kept Under Pressure.

In Greek mythology, Nemesis (Greek, Νέμεσις), also called Rhamnousia/Rhamnusia ("the goddess of Rhamnous") at her sanctuary at Rhamnous, north of Marathon, was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods). Another name was Adrasteia, meaning "the inescapable." The Greeks personified vengeful fate as a remorseless goddess: the goddess of revenge. The name Nemesis is related to the Greek word νέμειν [némein], meaning "to give what is due". ("Nemesis (mythology)")

In the twentieth verse of chapter three of the Genesis account it is said that “Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.” The Greek Septuagint Old Testament lies open under our eyes as this is written, and in the plainest of print it says nothing of the Kind: “And Adam called the name of his wife Zoe, as being the mother of all the living.” (Alvin Boyd Kuhn)

April 15 is Kim Il-sung's birthday--explosions happened next to the Old South church, namechecking both the Civil War and North and South Korea. Kim declares his intent to bomb Texas, and it happens. The North Κόρη (Feminine Severity) rising (Red Dawn, Aurora as Sleeping Beauty). The unfinished pyramid (NK) looms over suburbia (SK), safely ignored.

(Suicide Kings: Ator Rota Orat Tora Taro)

As ship exploded in Texas in 1947 on the same day. April 15 also date of the Titanic sinking. The Blade Runner is Oscar Pi Story. Life of Pi features a survivor of a ship named the Tsimtsum adrift on the waters. The lifeboat is specifically described as an "ark." Pi must board it when he is exiled from his Father's Garden. Tsimtsum refers to the Kabbalistic process that created division in the universe, graphically illustrated by the bomber blowing everything into pieces. Pi, like Luria, cannot answer why the contraction and Fall occurred (i.e., why the ship sank), only that it did. The lotus, he is told by the Grail Initiatrix, is found deep within the dark forest.

Richard Parker may be the Beast--but Pi is really the Beast. "They had to resort to cannibalism in order to stay alive." The Donner Party is the Dorner Party. The Titanic Tsimtsum--the suspect was apprehended in Watertown in a boat, hiding beneath the tarp. 

Krystle Campbell--"We're like crystal / (Hey) / We break easy," say the shipwreck survivors of the Tzimtzum Joy Division. (Fear death by water, Ian.)

Life in the Book Depository (Rota Taro Orat Tora Ator)

The companion book for a series of interviews between mythologist Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers, The Power of Myth, was created under the direction of Onassis, prior to her death. The book's editor, Betty Sue Flowers, writes in the Editor's Note to The Power of Myth: "I am grateful... to Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, the Doubleday editor, whose interest in the books of Joseph Campbell was the prime mover in the publication of this book." ("Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis")

You kill, is: Red Sock Fire Runner

Please note that "Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead" is sung at the beginning of the film, after Dorothy falls from a star named Kansas. Historically, Margaret Thatcher was an opponent of reunification.

"Oswald" means divine strength. The diminutive form of the word is "Os" or "Oz": a Hebrew term denoting strength. The role which "Divine Strength" played in the Dealey "Goddess Rule" killing of the king ritual should be given careful consideration. One should also note the significance of (Jack) Ruby's killing (destroying) of "Ozwald" in reference to the "Ruby Slippers" of the Wizard of Oz which one may deride as a 'fairy tale' but which nevertheless symbolizes the immense power of 'ruby light' . . . (KK33)
The Son Seths in the West, TX. Death comes first to the blonde (Reeva Steenkamp, Marilyn Monroe, Laura Palmer) as Osiris (JFK) enters the underworld, but resurrection is with the dark-haired girl (Jackie, Rachael, the unicorn) at the Omega Point. And thus somewhere in Texas Jackie-Isis leaps to collect Jack-Osiris's brains together after the gunman splatters them over the trunk

This particular brain is that of Microprosopus (Jacob) and consists of a son and two or three girls. The King's mind is blown; what will it take to make the Finn again wake in this funferal?

(JFK: The Book of the Film)

Hamlet is given to understand that he has a job to do; he must avenge the death of the King. It is only later that he learns that Ophelia was the one who was slain at the foundation of the world (and from her fair and unpolluted flesh may violets spring). This is his transition from psychic to pneumatic understanding (the Vision of Sorrow in Binah). He suffers and dies after prolonged indecision and agony (knowing that one must slay himself is an awful cross to bear), but this is only so that the whole mad conflagration can be swept aside by Horatio et al., who is the "brother" who carries on the Hero's legacy after his own sacrifice. 


"Tamerlane" is an epic poem by Edgar Allan Poe . . . The poem itself follows a Turkic conqueror named Tamerlane. . . . Tamerlane ignores the young love he has for a peasant in order to achieve power. On his deathbed, he regrets this decision to create "a kingdom [in exchange] for a broken-heart." ("Tamerlane (poem)")

Zhokhar's widow is named Katherine . . . see the Catherine Wheel as well as Chris Knowles' assertion that "Katherine (ostensibly meaning 'pure' in Greek) is ultimately derived from 'Hathor.'" Princess Kate?

Beth Israel

Miss Foreign Affairs

JFK and Dzhokhar were both subjected to questionable neck wounds (a gunshot? a knife? suicide?). The Russian Mother implicates the FBI and professes the innocence of her Son-Lover. Dead cop. These two cases 50 years apart even match in conspiracy lore.

Daddy's "True Angel" awakening: Knowledge and Conversation of the HGA is not with she of Binah but with the Dead Man of Tiphareth (Z''A)--this is a blind from the Great Beast. The most that rebellious True Angels can do to be perfect in all their paths (32 Vassar paths of Wisdom) and fulfill their True Will is to slay themselves (Set "the slayer and the slain"). At this understanding, the path of empty ritual that is the Oz Beast's sorcery is laid aside. Cf. John Travolta (Michael) as Hells Angel in Grease stealing the Aleph from the gods as he runs around the Wheel.

(A slain fallen angel directs the Argo)

April 15 is Jackie Robinson day (#42, divided colors); Set chops Osiris into 42 pieces in one account. Oscar Pi Story is 2642 as YHWH (= 26) with Osiris' 42 pieces of divided light.
And before him is the Table that is a Table of wickedness, and 42-fold Table. This Table is connected with the 42 Assessors of the Dead, for they are the Accursers, whom the soul must baffle; and with the 42-fold name of God, for this is the Mystery of Iniquity, that there was ever a beginning at all. And this Magus casteth forth, by the might of his four weapons, veil after veil; a thousand shining colours, ripping and tearing the Aethyr, so that it is like jagged saws, or like broken teeth in the face of a young girl, or like disruption, or madness. (3rd Aethyr)
42 = DB = David Bowie = DiViDe. DB gives the Shekinah the glass prism of Daath that allows her to view her dreams. DVD DiViDes the upper and lower waters (Binah and Malkuth) into the multicolored spectrum. Yet he is also her "Hero" and charged with the reparation of the worlds. Anything else is a pointless charade that accomplishes nothing; a simulacrum only. The One Light is beyond the many colors below the Abyss. The Son stands between Past (Chokmah) and Future (Binah); where will he go? Will he be Jack, or Danny? The Hero Twins of Christ and Ialdabaoth; the Bewlay Brothers of Horus and Set--the '47 girl says "I want my brother back" to the King born on January 8. Dartmouth is the cosmic mouth of Nuit into which the crippled Bowman's darts are thrown

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me

The mob demands the Hierophant enact his own ritual sacrifice on the stage (Round Dance of the Cross--"I would be wounded, and I would wound"), because they do not wish to enact the imitatio Christi themselves. Give us Barabbas; the Disco King's body is left to rot in a hollow tree (Cyprus/Cypress). The mixed multitude and their popular culture priesthood (teenage wildlife and the bloody robes) are in collusion; it is too late to rend the European canon. The baying crowd can't get enough of the doomsday song, always waiting for an historical apocalypse that will never come. The Empire ("the devil") says, worship Buddha. Buddha says, don't worship me. Buddha dies, and only the Empire persists. "The world was filled with wonder and followed the Beast."

KStew as the Shekinah cinder maiden in the pressure cooker (boiled Philosopher's Stone on Boylston in Ba Stone) cut her foot on glass (crystal Shards of Holiness in the division of the qliphoth) and was seen on crutches at the Ptah-Oscars hosted by Set[h]--the "host" as Hierophant divides the body of Osiris for the multitude as slayer and slain. This foreshadowing is evident only in retrospect.

Harrison Ford the Blade Runner appears in the Boston Marathon Family Guy. Runners met Peter (Griffin) the Roman on the road creating endless division of phenomena between the waters. As in The Shining, the Father (Peter) becomes Set[h] after a certain manner. This episode features a girl being decapitated by a Ninja. Peter Griffin as Man Who Fell to Earth lands on top of Meg Griffin (played by Mila Kunis of Oz). Seth's Killing Joke is that everyone hates Meg and submits her to eternal torment, even though she's the Sexiest Woman Alive ("who's the fairest of them all?").

Everything is metamorphosed into its opposite to perpetuate itself in its expurgated form. All the powers, all the institutions speak of themselves through denial, in order to attempt, by simulating death, to escape their real death throes. Power can stage its own murder to rediscover a glimmer of existence and legitimacy. Such was the case with some American presidents: the Kennedys were murdered because they still had a political dimension. The others, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, only had the right to phantom attempts, to simulated murders. But this aura of an artificial menace was still necessary to conceal that they were no longer anything but the mannequins of power. Formerly, the king (also the god) had to die, therein lay his power. Today, he is miserably forced to feign death, in order to preserve the blessing of power. But it is lost. (Baudrillard, Simulacra and Simulation)

"Father, yes son, I want to kill you . . ."

Abraham Lincoln cites the magic numbers "four score and seven" in a house divided against itself. He is charged with uniting Upper and Lower Egypt and freeing the slaves, but Abraham's final sacrifice will not be his son, but himself. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Lincoln's son in Spielberg's film and is Judas the hitman with the pieces of silver in Looper (the last hit is on himself). His bowels spilled out in the field of blood. This post explains the symbolism of it all beautifully.

Jeff Daniels (Gettysburg) plays "Abe" in Looper--the title evinces the nature of the eternal time loop as primarily being that of the killing of the king by himself. This is the formula of the Dying God of the Aeon of Osiris. Willis-Osiris as Saturn slays children. The blonde mother of the Aeon is the Aleph as Nancy. Note the historical resemblance between Lincoln's son and John Wilkes Booth.

The fool-king, who is accorded great status for a day and then ritually sacrificed, appears in many different cultures, from Europe to the Aztec civilisation. This theme is particularly well-treated in the pagan classic, The Wicker Man. In this film, the policeman ‘victim’ is given very high status - as only a very high status sacrifice will appease the gods. (Phil Hine)

Policeman victim


It is necessary, in order to understand the Tarot, to go back in history to the Matriarchal (and exogamic) Age, to the time when succession was not through the first-born son of the King, but through his daughter. The king was therefore not king by inheritance, but by right of conquest. In the most stable dynasties, the new king was always a stranger, a foreigner; what is more, he had to kill the old king and marry that king’s daughter. This system ensured the virility and capacity of every king. The stranger had to win his bride in open competition. In the oldest fairy-tales, this motive is continually repeated. The ambitious stranger is often a troubadour; nearly always he is disguised, often in a repulsive form. Beauty and the Beast is a typical tale. There is often a corresponding camouflage about the king’s daughter, as in the case of Cinderella and the Enchanted Princess.

The tale of Aladdin gives the whole of this fable in a very elaborate form, packed with technical tales of magic. ("The Fool," The Book of Thoth)
When he was assassinated, Abraham Lincoln saw Our American Cousin in (Harrison) Ford's Theatre (the Fool marries the King's Daughter):
The play is a farce whose plot is based on the introduction of an awkward, boorish, but honest American, Asa Trenchard, to his aristocratic English relatives when he goes to England to claim the family estate. . . .

Asa proposes to Mary and is happily accepted. He then sneaks into Coyle's office with Murcott and retrieves the paper that shows that the debt was paid. Asa confronts Coyle and insists that Coyle must pay off Sir Edward's other debts, with his doubtless ill-gotten gains, and also apologize to Florence for trying to force her into marriage. Moreover, he demands Coyle's resignation as the steward of Trenchard Manor, making Murcott steward instead. Murcott is so pleased that he vows to stop drinking. Coyle has no choice but to do all this. Florence marries Harry, Dundreary marries Georgina, and Augusta marries an old beau. Even the servants marry.
These are the final scenes in Spielberg's Lincoln:
On April 14, 1865, Tad went to Grover's Theater to see Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp while his parents attended Our American Cousin at Ford's Theater. The same night, his father was assassinated and when the news spread to Grover's Theater the manager made an announcement to the entire audience. ("Tad Lincoln")

The Fool kills the King . . .

. . . And rescues the Princess.
