Fukushima (Blessed Island) …Trinity Unleashed…
As events unfold in Japan and the nuclear danger meme springs back into a harsh spotlight, I wanted to re-post something I had felt so strongly last year, at the anniversary of the first nuclear test in Trinity, Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Please note that the trinity site is exactly on the 33rd North Parallel.
Had an interesting comment come in today, thought I’d share it.
Why burn the house down?
I recall seeing a movie of the bombing of Hiroshima. On duty at the hospital that day was a single doctor and a single nurse.
They had absolutely no idea of what had happened.
The injuries they saw were out of their field.
After many hours the brave americans who did this actually called through to the hospital to see how they were managing (un-believable) and the doctor answered with this line :
‘now that my house has burnt down – i can see the moon more clearly”.
no line has ever struck me as deeply as that one, and when a year later my own home and business (uninsured) burnt down that line returned to me and i looked up and you know one does see the moon more clearly.
So, I’d written the two posts below in July 2010 and they seem fitting now, part of the puzzle.
There are now enough pieces of the puzzle in place that the natural unfoldment is predictable. i have a clear vision that I’ll share in the next day or so.
The super moon, Equinox, Terrence Mckenna’s time wave zero 22nd March 2011 date, it’s ties to what happened in the desert in New Mexico, the American Cross….everything is related too.
I can say this with feeling though, we are now nearly at that agonizing top of the swing of the pendulum, the place between breaths, the place of maximum novelty, the big back-to-the-mix before another cycle, with it’s own unique character, yet to reveal herself….
A full stop that isn’t, if you know what I mean, agar tum samajhti ho ki mein ky aken raha hoon…. 😉
And it is fitting that the transition from wood, to wood charcoal, to coal, to crude, to refined, to nuclear will involve all of these combustibles, who through their own annihilation (fire, whose impact is irreversible) gave us energy, free-energy till it was not.
And so in Fukushima, Blessed island…Fire, Earth, Water and Air…. all in the mix to bathe us in holy nuclear sparkles….
And look at Japan, it embraced it’s horror, Hiroshima and Nagasaki transformed into perpetual, free energy. The killer became the host and the people never saw it. Never saw it. How could they? Ever seen Japanese TV? How could they?
Such a strange feeling, for that place is so precious to me, personally. My old company, my friends, Fuji-san, societal madness, manners, exquisite refinement….. now this…
Launch sequence has commenced…
This from July 2nd 2010…
16th July, 1945, Trinity….Unleashed
Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, the A bomb. The last frontier was shattered.
The true start of the age of terror. Nuclear Terror.
The transition of our mind-space from Fear to Terror.
All war is filled with fear. But survivable, which is critical to our core instincts.
Nuclear war is not. It has been the threat hanging over us all. Species annihilation.
Sound too far fetched?
Mutually assured destruction? MAD?
This is why this date must be remembered. And this time, approaching the 66th anniversary of a seminal event that changed us forever, which happened to occur right at the 33rd parallel, must be especially remembered.
See how the cycles turn.
16th July 1945, it was detonated as a precursor to 6th August (Hiroshoma) and 9th August (Nagasaki), a mere 3 weeks later. And in the weird double-speak we are now inured to, we were told it brought peace.
But what has followed has been anything but, eh?
The greatest war, to end all wars, brought only more wars. The decades since armistice 1945 has brought us one devastating war after another and the Damocles sword hanging ever over our head… Nuclear War.
So, 65 years on, and here we are. The GOM disaster (Deepwater Horizon) is nuclear too. Read about it. High readings of radiation in the escaping oil. (By the way, all oil, especially in certain regions has low levels of radio-activity, but this is high levels. Toxic levels)
Meme’ sbeing released to the public, all say that the only possible solution to the problem is to seal it shut with a “controlled” nuclear blast.
Strange how these two twin evils, oil and nuclear energy are coming together at this generational tipping point.
And nuclear energy, that which has destroyed and only destroyed (nuclear power is dirty power by the way, they still do not know how to store nuclear waste safely, except dump it on poor countries/peoples), is now going to be mankind’s saviour!
Do you see the delicious irony in this?
And Iran, the target of the latest twisted twist on the Axis of Evil, war on terror is all about Nuclear Power (peaceful/war-like, regardless).
The nuclear genie is everywhere.
And so, I would like to pull as many people’s attention to these two pictures and everything they represent, as we approach 16th July 2010.
And I would like to suggest a ritual that can help us all, collectively put the nuclear genie back in the bottle.
Much more to write on this, but I’ll leave you with the imagery for now.
Do pass it around.
In a bit then.
From Nuclear to New Clear anyone?
And then followed it up with this….
So much to write about, my little note-pad of possible post-headers is full.
But I keep getting called to remind people about the nuclear anniversary coming upon us, soon.
In recent history (say the last 300-400 years), that date, July 16th 1945 marked a real turning point in our relationship with technology.
Everything started to speed up, all around us. Like all things that grow to a massive size, the initial growth is almost imperceptible.
But pay attention long enough and you start to see a temporal connect. For example, the invention of the printing press and the rise of books/literacy is an easy one.
The invention of the cotton gin and the rise of the industrial revolution is slightly harder.
We live after all in a continuously diminishing echo of the past. Like a stone thrown in a pond, the ripples continue long past the point of impact.
It is the same with events. They are temporal markers and if seminal enough, their ripples continue to impact generations to come.
World War I had been ended with bold cries of “Never Again” and various other such platitudes that are constantly given out to bewildered people at the climax of things such as world devastating wars. And people swallow it and forget it by the time NEVER AGAIN is repeated, a scant 21 years later.
And the nuclear bombs, which supposedly sealed WWII with an exhibition of force heretofore unseen in history, were birthed on 16th July 1945, in New Mexico.
New Mexico, Gulf Of Mexico. Interesting eh?
And if anyone reading this thought I was being a tad over the top with the Nuclear Terror issue, I suggest you look at the role of the Nuke as the cattle-prod of the west, keeping the rest of the world in line.
In a large herd of cattle, only the one’s in the front-line feel the prod. But their panic and pain ripples through the entire herd.
It is the same with war and especially nuclear war. While we (most of us) did not live directly in it’s shadow or fear (actually many generations of Americans and Russians did), it’s energy impacted us all. Oftentimes in the background, but always there.
Meanwhile, our lives sped up and we were pushed into smaller and smaller boxes, literally, figuratively….. space-wise, time-wise, community wise.
In a fractal world, that made perfect sense. If we, as a species, figure we’ve got nuclear power tamed, we should be comfortable with it’s parameters, yes? Or no? Really, ask yourself that question.
Hyperfast time, hypersmall space, fractal folding, extreme compression, mind-bending adhesion.
Now we get to live it out in the open again. Too long, nukes have laboured in the shadows.
They returns as friends. Nukes will save us. Fire in the hole!
I have my doubts and , in my estimation, we are staring our Atlantean moment in it’s face.
What did you feel when you saw the black and white ball of fire?
This is not the end or the beginning of anything. It is just a phase of an on-going drama of evolution and de-volution….
Be kind to your “Self'”… find discipline, in-sight, understanding. They are everywhere.
