- Bees always signal Saturn
- Obama's Eagles are always Phoenixes, as this recent Drudge conjunction reminds us:
- I have thought of Eco or ECCO or Echo as perhaps being indicative of the collective unconscious or the ID.
- In Japanese, "Iko" (pronounced "E"-"Ko" or ECO) means "Let's Go"
Also noteworthy in "Sirens of Titan," is a spaceship called "The Whale." As I I had been looking at the fact that bees are perfect symbols for death/rebirth - bees have stingers and die after using them, they are potentially deadly themselves (see Killer Bees), but also are responsible for much life on this planet by pollinating the world's plantlife - I began seeing Bees and Whales as symbolically interchangeable, since there are Sperm Whales and Killer Whales. We also have "the belly of the whale" as a dark night of the soul orego-death experience. So, when the spaceship called "The Whale" popped up in this book, I took notice.
This theory was validated when, in the Radio8Ball show that synced so strongly in Part One, Twig Palace sings her song "Little Finger." She sings a line that reminds us of Lucky's four magic charms and Elton John's Levon, "Let's blow up big balloons and send them soaring into outer space." The next verse has the people reincarnated as Bumble Bees. In the verse after that she sings, "If our honey lives don't suit us, let's be killer whales instead."
Some etymologists propose an old Sanskrit origin to the Semitic word "sappir": a dark colored precious stone called "Shanipriya" (शनिप्रिय), from "shani" (शनि) meaning "Saturn" and "priya" (प्रिय), precious, i.e. "precious to Saturn".
Sapphire (Greek: σάπφειρος; sappheiros, "blue stone") is a gemstone variety of the mineral corundum, an aluminium oxide
I have about a zillion synchs about taking charge, making a choice, activate, blah blah. Here's a command that includes 911 and the reverse of 144, my totemic number. It includes the infamous (like anti-matter) Chase octagon. It's both a debit AND a Master Card. The master card is the Joker, it can be whatever you want it to be, just say the word. important. ACTIVATE! Activate your joker card.
"Don't dream it, be it" keeps coming back. I have this feeling that our egos are about to be given an amazing and wonderful choice, because that's what ego's do. We choose. we judge. I suspect that my dreams are about to come true, and so are everyone else's. Dream big.
The Starman explains to Jenny that he has three days to get to the rendezvous point, Arizona's Barringer Crater, or he will die. She teaches him how to drive a car and use credit cards, intending on escaping so he can continue his journey alone. However, as she is about to make her escape, she witnesses him miraculously resurrect a dead deer. Deeply moved, she resolves to help him at whatever cost.
The Starman uses their last quarters in a slot machine, which he manipulates in order to win the jackpot. The couple use their winnings to buy a new car to complete the drive to Winslow, Arizona, which is near Barringer Crater.
Now we've got 8,000 doves dropping dead in a day. Don Henley did a duet w/ Stevie Nicks (his former girlfriend) on her Bella Donna album which features a Dove on the cover, has the infamous song Edge of 17 with the chorus "just like the white wing Dove" and their duet is all about the union of opposites - the beauty and the beast.Well, I'm a standing on a cornerin Winslow, Arizona
and such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
