Towers of Baab’el and Levers of Control….

May 31, 2012

Greetings,

Hope everyone is well.

We are entering the Dog days of Summer. And the up-coming Venus Transit across the Sun Disc is a major marker for all of us, individually and collectively. Read my previous post on it, Google it….in-form your-self.

We ARE a Pentagram….

Source

And we are on an evolutionary path (are you?)….

5 senses, 5 Elements, 5 tastes, Five fingers…… on and on and on…..

Like all major events such as this, there are Global Effects and Individual effects.

Look, deeply, at what is happening around us. It’s NOT a pretty time. Globally. Individually, we are all on our own rides, so how we feels depends on where we are in our own, personal cycle.

But the big-picture is un-pretty to say the least.

How is it all connected? More on that soon. But for now, I’d advice everyone to dive-in a little.

At least get a good sense of your own Pentagrammity. 🙂

The more our awareness expands to embrace larger and larger archetypes, the less we play with the devil, hiding as he does in the details. And the deeper the messages we receive from said archtypal events/people/places etc.

It’s not about knowing more, it’s about feeling more.

Also, we’re watching the great un-ravelling as I type. All things held Sacred, or True or Factual, or Historical or worship-worthy are falling, falling. Idols with clay feet, history, false as taught, false as written, false as believed.

Our virtual towers will crumble before we see our literal towers crash.

There are ominous reverberations of the mythical tower of Babel. Three literal examples stand out….

None of them bode well. In the ugly, energy twisting, angular, harsh geometry of our modern architecture (see any arches in our architecture???), we can see how our attempts to reach for the stars are so full of hubris.

The end of every age has a story of a great crashing and crumbling. As the earth shakes, ever more, we reach higher. Is that not the very definition of insanity?

And yet here we are….

Burj Al’Khalifa, Dubai

Over-reach, in every sense.

” From private butlers hired for each collection to free of charge helicopter and Rolls Royce guest transfers, everything in among boasts one of the greatest standards of importance, not only in Dubai, but all over the Middle East”

Next up…

Above, the Tokyo Skytree, complete with it’s Masonic reflecting pool. As above, so below, they say. Such a cheap interpretation.

And last but not least and to my instinct, most chilling…

Sunlight reflects off the Shard in central London today as construction continues on the building

The Shard in London…. phew….

Work on the Shard began in February 2009 and an estimated £450million has been spent on its construction so far.

The building will offer uninterrupted 360-degree views of the capital, stretching for 40 miles in every direction.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the view from an observatory that will be 72 floors up.

Billed as a ‘vertical city’, it will comprise offices up to floor 28, then three floors of restaurants; a five-star 19-storey hotel of 200 rooms; ten apartments over 12 floors – each seven times larger than a semi-detached house and likely to fetch tens of millions of pounds each; and, finally, the observatory and spire.

Designed by Italian Renzo Piano to resemble an iceberg emerging from the Thames, the Shard has not been without controversy.

One more view…

Europe's tallest building stands at 310 metres (1,016ft) tall and is fully clad in glass - so when the sun shines on a cloudless day, it gives it the appearance of a shining beacon

A shard of glass….hmmmmmm……

A vertical city, sounds a lot like the Burj…now, still mostly desolate, un-finished.

These are to my mind, the Great Masonic Errors.

Masons are of course architects first and fore-most.

Mark my words, these three buildings will be much talked about and for all the wrong reasons. Like the ill-advised, masonic, ritual, lying NASA and it’s reach for the stars, lies, death and hubris are in the DNA of all three.

Baab’el!

In a similar vein, though not exactly, two shockers, showing how much of our current world view has been manipulated…

First this, from none other than Mr. Cubism himself.

Pablo Picasso:

AND THE SAD TRUTH ABOUT THE TOUTED AND ELITE FINE ART WORLD

Picasso Confesses- from an article by John Garth, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, in the ARGONAT. (no date given)]

In his book LIBRO NERO, the Italian author Giovanni Papini gives this report of an interview he had with the top god of modern art, Pablo Picasso. Here is what Picasso reportedly thinks of himself:

“From the moment that art ceases to be food that feeds the best minds, the artist can use his talents to perform all the tricks of the intellectual charlatan. Most people can today no longer expect to receive consolation and exaltation from art.

“The ‘refined,’ the rich, the professional ‘do-nothings’, the distillers of quintessence desire only the peculiar, the sensational, the eccentric, the scandalous in today’s art. I myself, since the advent of Cubism, have fed these fellows what they wanted and satisfied these critics with all the ridiculous ideas that have passed through my mind.

“The less they understood them, the more they admired me. Through amusing myself with all these absurd farces, I became celebrated, and very rapidly. For a painter, celebrity means sales and consequent affluence. Today, as you know, I am celebrated, I am rich.

“But when I am alone, I do not have the effrontery to consider myself an artist at all, not in the grand old meaning of the word: Giotto, Titian, Rembrandt, Goya were great painters. I am only a public clown–a mountebank.

“I have understood my time and have exploited the imbecility, the vanity, the greed of my contemporaries. It is a bitter confession, this confession of mine, more painful than it may seem. But at least and at last it does have the merit of being honest.”

True? I feel it. Cubism seemed a sham to me from the start. Most so called modern art was stewarded by the American Central Intelligence Agency. So was most modern music. The Beatles, all of the famous musicians that poured out of Laurel Canyon in the 60’s….. very very shocking once you dive…

More on the CIA and it’s Culture Warriors another day.

Equally sad, and clearly equally true (to my instinct)… the Origins of Gangsta Rap….that has driven first America and now the world into a cess-pool of Show you Baaaady, Bitch this and Ho that, Pimp Daddy…….down down down….. killed black culture…destroyed black society, made it all cool to the whites, destroyed white society…. on and on….as one key facet of modern control. Mind control….

“The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation”

This anonymous letter landed in my inbox about a minute ago:

Hello,

After more than 20 years, I’ve finally decided to tell the world what I witnessed in 1991, which I believe was one of the biggest turning point in popular music, and ultimately American society. I have struggled for a long time weighing the pros and cons of making this story public as I was reluctant to implicate the individuals who were present that day. So I’ve simply decided to leave out names and all the details that may risk my personal well being and that of those who were, like me, dragged into something they weren’t ready for.

Between the late 80’s and early 90’s, I was what you may call a “decision maker” with one of the more established company in the music industry. I came from Europe in the early 80’s and quickly established myself in the business. The industry was different back then. Since technology and media weren’t accessible to people like they are today, the industry had more control over the public and had the means to influence them anyway it wanted. This may explain why in early 1991, I was invited to attend a closed door meeting with a small group of music business insiders to discuss rap music’s new direction. Little did I know that we would be asked to participate in one of the most unethical and destructive business practice I’ve ever seen.

The meeting was held at a private residence on the outskirts of Los Angeles. I remember about 25 to 30 people being there, most of them familiar faces. Speaking to those I knew, we joked about the theme of the meeting as many of us did not care for rap music and failed to see the purpose of being invited to a private gathering to discuss its future. Among the attendees was a small group of unfamiliar faces who stayed to themselves and made no attempt to socialize beyond their circle. Based on their behavior and formal appearances, they didn’t seem to be in our industry. Our casual chatter was interrupted when we were asked to sign a confidentiality agreement preventing us from publicly discussing the information presented during the meeting. Needless to say, this intrigued and in some cases disturbed many of us. The agreement was only a page long but very clear on the matter and consequences which stated that violating the terms would result in job termination. We asked several people what this meeting was about and the reason for such secrecy but couldn’t find anyone who had answers for us. A few people refused to sign and walked out. No one stopped them. I was tempted to follow but curiosity got the best of me. A man who was part of the “unfamiliar” group collected the agreements from us.

Quickly after the meeting began, one of my industry colleagues (who shall remain nameless like everyone else) thanked us for attending. He then gave the floor to a man who only introduced himself by first name and gave no further details about his personal background. I think he was the owner of the residence but it was never confirmed. He briefly praised all of us for the success we had achieved in our industry and congratulated us for being selected as part of this small group of “decision makers”. At this point I begin to feel slightly uncomfortable at the strangeness of this gathering. The subject quickly changed as the speaker went on to tell us that the respective companies we represented had invested in a very profitable industry which could become even more rewarding with our active involvement. He explained that the companies we work for had invested millions into the building of privately owned prisons and that our positions of influence in the music industry would actually impact the profitability of these investments. I remember many of us in the group immediately looking at each other in confusion. At the time, I didn’t know what a private prison was but I wasn’t the only one. Sure enough, someone asked what these prisons were and what any of this had to do with us. We were told that these prisons were built by privately owned companies who received funding from the government based on the number of inmates. The more inmates, the more money the government would pay these prisons. It was also made clear to us that since these prisons are privately owned, as they become publicly traded, we’d be able to buy shares. Most of us were taken back by this. Again, a couple of people asked what this had to do with us. At this point, my industry colleague who had first opened the meeting took the floor again and answered our questions. He told us that since our employers had become silent investors in this prison business, it was now in their interest to make sure that these prisons remained filled. Our job would be to help make this happen by marketing music which promotes criminal behavior, rap being the music of choice. He assured us that this would be a great situation for us because rap music was becoming an increasingly profitable market for our companies, and as employee, we’d also be able to buy personal stocks in these prisons. Immediately, silence came over the room. You could have heard a pin drop. I remember looking around to make sure I wasn’t dreaming and saw half of the people with dropped jaws. My daze was interrupted when someone shouted, “Is this a f****** joke?” At this point things became chaotic. Two of the men who were part of the “unfamiliar” group grabbed the man who shouted out and attempted to remove him from the house. A few of us, myself included, tried to intervene. One of them pulled out a gun and we all backed off. They separated us from the crowd and all four of us were escorted outside. My industry colleague who had opened the meeting earlier hurried out to meet us and reminded us that we had signed agreement and would suffer the consequences of speaking about this publicly or even with those who attended the meeting. I asked him why he was involved with something this corrupt and he replied that it was bigger than the music business and nothing we’d want to challenge without risking consequences. We all protested and as he walked back into the house I remember word for word the last thing he said, “It’s out of my hands now. Remember you signed an agreement.” He then closed the door behind him. The men rushed us to our cars and actually watched until we drove off.

Please do read the rest of it…

And there you have it….

What to speak of Libya’s descent into hell, Syria being pushed there, Iran in the wings, pakistan Droned, more and more, Drones int eh American skies, state sponsored murder, false flag terror, mindless killings………

The bright spots are inside us first. The outside is very much a reflection of who we are with-in.

i’m personally feeling the urge to move again, new frontiers…new energies, fresh people, some innocence perhaps…. Bangalore is FUBAR, sadly. Cannot even source clean water here anymore. Mammon, stench, noise…these rule, people are behaving more and more demented…

More on this once great city another day….

For now….

Blessings all around…this information is not intended to get you down, but to push you in! 😉

In truth,

Vivek

    I’ve just begun to read this and have shared aloud with Tony the beginnings. But I skipped to the end to see you’re ready to move on. Oh wouldn’t I be a happy girl if you were to move closer to me. 🙂 Much love.

    Hard not to feel down about all this info. I’ve suspected the music industry but never connected the prison industrial complex to it. I do not doubt this person’s story for a moment. As a matter of fact, I believe Tupac was killed because he didn’t wanna play their game.

    picasso’s honesty was something that he himself could not
    totally destroy, this his talent, recognized in his life and time.
    his absurd fancy?, that is art ! cubism manifesting multiple
    perspectives in one two dimensional, + color, plane was and still
    is relevant and informative for those on the path of evolving
    consciousness, i would guess. so he may have confessed
    but in the grand scheme of things i see no crime. he remains
    an artist in his least efforts even to and or in the grave.
    once an artist there is no turning back and no back sliding.
    it is done.
    frank lloyd wright said ” never build on the top of the hill
    because you lose the top of the hill.” or something like that.
    or ….
    “you should never build on top of the hill, if you built on top of the hill, you lose the hill. If you build on the side of the top, you have the hill and the eminence that you desire.”
    the precise quote requires more research than i will now do.
    “Vernon Swaback:
    As you might know, there’s quite a difference in the architectural character between the Wrigley Mansion and the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. Wright never believed on building on the top of the hill. He talked about his own home in Wisconsin as building on the brow. If you build on the top, you destroy the hill and so forth. At one point he said to Phil Wrigley, who was the chewing gum magnate, you know, he said, “well Phil, I see you stuck your whole wad on the top of the hill.” ”
    .
    this seems to have meaning in more than one context and on more than one
    level. you build with and on that which is suitable for building without
    suffering the loss of that which is essential, you adorn and honor the essential
    first. ? yes
    speaking of bad music but interesting …..( but then again…it might be great?
    it is so hard to tell anymore.)

      Wow BM. As always, stunner of a video.

      And yes, Picasso was an awesome artist. YET, he could have sould out, but he sold out. All good though. Important perspective though.

      FLW… fascinating. I understand, to a great degree I think, the essence of his art-form. But he too was cubic. In a round round world his creations were all square. See? hmmmmm….

      The 20th century, in my eyes, on the presented level, the century of Lies.

      🙂 At least, thanks to the net, we can see flashes of truth….

    and here another curiosity of the history of the “mus-ic
    industry”, there an oxymoron revealing nothing?; the band,
    the insider pros, session players, responsible for the actual
    sounds that became the major popular hits or recordings
    of much of the music of the sixties and seventies, was known
    as “the wrecking crew”. they were the ones the industry
    decision makers employed to record the records.
    for what it is worth? all part of the industrialisation of
    the sounds people make to amuse themselves, turned
    into a consumable commodity.
    the wrecking crew, they could play real well. too.

      Trippy. Wrecking crew… played wrecking sessions….hmmmmm

    he may have been guilty of saying too much

    few others could or would. reminds me of this…

    From the big and tall structures to big and tall energy projects, man’s vanity to acheive culmnates into a big and tall (eh, fat) ego. And it creeps into music, art, writngs… all facets of cultues, unrelenting for aeons…Majority is intoxicated in this ego trip, became self-imposed-dreamer refusing to wake up.

    And so those who real-ly awaken, had to move along the sideline, becoming fringe dwellers, learning, helping, loving ad moving all not-so-loudly.

    A gypse existence, perhaps. But a warrior on the path of internalization truly.

    So moving, just like breathing, or rubbing your toes. Part and parcel of a warrior adventue.

    Thank for sharing,

    And the truth will out…..ugliness exposed LARGE for all to see. No surprises here, instincts revealed it first. I knew at seis an(y)os that this is bizarro world, not to mention just plain mean. What was confusing to me was the stunning, breathtaking beauty juxtapositioned. Proof of God, I reckoned. (With all this horseshit, there’s got to be a pony in here somewhere….like that) Move where sugar? Within for sure, but then there’s the hard search for healthy air, water…all … well, you know. However, it’s not all gone yet, is it.

    Speaking of ugly and horrifying, what’s up with all the cannibalism going on in Murka? Is it worldwide?

    Hey Vivek! Amelia sent me to this post. Interestingly, that very article “The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation,” inspired me to dive deep into the cesspool of the entertainment entertainment for three months last year. I was obsessed and learned way more than I ever wanted to know about secret societies and symbolism, etc. Most of it made sense and some of it I still find confusing, but whatever one believes about the controllers, the actual content that is being forced upon our young people is creating a culture of over sexualized, addicted sheeple. My work as Amelia may have told you is to create nutritious children’s entertainment that supports the healthy development of today’s kids. We design our content to help kids develop their inner guidance system. Hence, you could call what we do Innertainment. Check out our Kickstarter http://kickstart.pachaspajamas.com. Blessings

      Hey Dave,

      Glad to meet you and yes, the rabbit hole is deep, deeper than most can even begin to imagine. I sent Amelia a a video yesterday, please ask her to share it with you.

      I did check out the pachas kickstarter page after she told me about what you are doing 🙂

      Look forward to meeting/greeting/co-creating as we intend and universe allows..

      I like the sound of nutritious children’s entertainment…
