Heart Shaped Box: Love in the Underworld

I had a dream last night where I was making a sync video about Osiris and Valentine's Day. I woke up and thought a little about the syncs that were presented to me in this dream. The material is so abundant, I'll have to cut it down immensely. Here goes:

Valentine's Day takes place on February 14th. Osiris was cut into 14 pieces.
That is of course, after he was sealed inside of a box.

Osiris, as Egypt's dead and resurrected god, of course has parallels with Jesus. As Eleleth informed me, the word "Issa" or "Essa" is another name for Jesus and also means heart.
So Jesus is the heart that has been pierced.
"Essa" or "Isa" can also mean, gift of Isis, the wife of Osiris.
Last year, The SyncWhole did a Valentine's post on 214 being the equivalent of "Bad" since b is the second letter of the alphabet, A the first and D the fourth.
This makes an extra big sync for me, since my given last name was A-BAD-ESSA.

We get another pierced bad(214) heart that echoes Osiris' box prison/trap when we look to Bon Jovi's 2am jukebox standard:
Shot through the heart, and you're to blame, darling
You give love a BAD name

An angel's smile is what you sell
You promise me heaven then put me through hell
Chains of love, got a hold on me
When passion's a prison you can't break free
The holy trinity of Nirvana also connects the slain god with the Heart-shaped BOX.
The lyrics take us from Jesus (pisces), to Osiris (box trap), to Cancer, back to Osiris/Saturn (turn black). It's like a tour around the cosmos in a single verse, but a tour where all roads lead to the underworld.
She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your Heart Shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black
When I told Melissa (Mel+issa=honey heart) about my dream, she reminded me of a scene from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End where there's a heart in a box that get's stabbed. That heart of course belongs to Davy Jones and the box is Davy Jones' Locker, a symbol equivalent to the underworld or dark night of the soul.
Plot from Wiki:
Sparrow places his sword in Will's hand and helps Will stab Jones's heart before he dies. Jack and Elizabeth escape The Flying Dutchman as the crew place Will's heart in the Dead Man's Chest; the ship disappears into the whirlpool. The Dutchman resurfaces with Will as the captain and the crew now human.
We can see how Will's murder of his enemies heart, has put him into his enemies shoes. In one way, he became that which he hated by destroying that which he hated. And yet, there is also the tale of a man having conquered his dark night of the soul and emerging as captain of his own destiny. Read into it as you will.

To run with the pattern however, let's note that it is Johnny Depp who assists in the stabbing of the heart. That's important.
First off, Depp is already an underworld resonator as Kevin has made clear. Plus, he starred in "Dead Man." It doesn't get more blatant than that.
But Depp is interesting. He assists in the piercing of the heart, yet is not the one to do it.
In Edward Scissorhands, the broken heart leaves Depp "unfinished."
An elderly woman describes to her granddaughter where snow comes from by telling the story of a young man named Edward (Johnny Depp) with scissors for hands, the creation of an inventor (Vincent Price). The inventor was inspired to make an artificial man due to the anthropomorphic appearance of his other inventions. His final result was a humanlike young boy who had everything except for hands, but the inventor had a heart attack and died while in the act of creating a pair of real hands for Edward, leaving him "unfinished" forever.
I would say, he is left unfinished by his maker, because he has to complete himself. No one else can make you complete, but you.

In Scissorhands, Depp's love interest is Winona Ryder (WR=White Rabbit?). Winona also stars in Bram Stoker's Dracula. [Ba-Ram (Osiris) Stroker...wouldn't the stroker of Osiris' Ba-Ram or Djed Pillar be Isis?] Any-who.... Winona goes from Depp in Scissorhands (1990) to a Jim Jarmusch film (director of Deadman) called Night on Earth in 1991, to being the wife of Kea-NEO Reeves in Dracula(1992). I won't rehash the cluster of mind boggling syncs around Kea-Neo since they are well documented. Only to remind you that he is a resonator of 9/11, Sirius, the god of time and the death/rebirth Messiah (Jesus/Osiris/Saturn).

Dracula, for his part also travels around in a BOX and is of course a lord of the underworld. Yup. Then, he get's his heart pierced. Is this all sounding familiar yet? But, it gets better. Check it:
He surrounds them with a ring of fire to protect them from the brides, then infiltrates the castle and decapitates them the following morning. As sunset approaches, Dracula's carriage arrives at the castle, pursued by the hunters. A fight between the hunters and gypsies ensues and at sunset Dracula bursts from his coffin. Harker(Kea-neo) slits his throat while a wounded Morris stabs him in the heart with a Bowie knife.
Did you catch that? Not the Bowie knife (Eleleth), but yes, that's cool too. Winona Rider's love Kea-neo assists in the piercing of the heart, just as Winona Rider's love Johnny Depp assists in the piercing of the heart.

I was going to cut this next bit, but it's kinda interesting and adds a weirdness factor. So here goes. In Dracula, a third fighter is also at the scene when Kea-neo pierces the heart of the lord of the underworld. That's Cary Elwes, most known for his role as "The Dread Pirate Roberts" in the Princess Bride and green-man (osiris) resonator "Robin Hood" in Robbin Hood: Men in Tights. But okay, this is the weird crap. On September 11th 2009, Disney announced both the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie title, with Depp there dressed as Jack Sparrow, and also announced that they're remaking Yellow Submarine with Cary Elwes as George Harrison!
And what was the name of this 9/11 shindig that so resonated with all of the patterns we've been looking at? D23! (that's a combo of 42 and 23 for anyone who follows that persistent combination)

PS: Michael from Gosporn has a new post up today which ties in nicely. It's all about the dismembered god and the hero's journey into the underworld. Be sure to check it out.


  1. Thanks for going down the Winona wormhole. She's in Star Trek playing Spock's mom. Spock is Vulcan, lame God. Lame/wounded/dismembered, Sam'ol. Isis, the mother of us all.

  2. Hail Isis, hail synchromystics. Dennis

  3. Michael, you wrote this last night while I was watching the first SailorMoon movie.
    you wrote "Isis, the mother of us all."
    Then, in the movie, they say "Sailor Moon is everyone's mother"
    Total runtime of movie 1:01:09 (IsisUnveiled)

    the moon mother is speaking very loudly right now, isn't she?

  4. An unfinished man (Quasi-modo) with mechanical hands and a dead father? There's something Hermetic in the air.

    David Bowie, née David Jones. The one-eyed pirate. Bring me the head (throat slit) of the Disco King and so forth. The Hunger.

    I had a post all written up about Dracula, but the whole "Brides of Dracula" subject just seemed too ... controversial. Not sure how to approach it. Have you read this exchange with Michael? The Dragon King, the Basilisk, the Shadow. All of this is leading to the same place, isn't it? Sic semper tyrannis.

    Osiris is a black god indeed. Think also the Addams Family. Adam is the Dead Man. Gary Old-Man plays Dracula. Put off the Old Adam, put on the New Adam.

    Gollum = golem = GLM = God's Lonely Man, as per Aferrismoon.

  5. Eleleth,
    In that SailorMoon screen cap, we see SailorMoon's daughter holding her cat-headed ball (see Baal the cat-headed god). I see that our friend mister Bowie even played the role of Baal
    Hmm, new meaning to "playing Ball/Baal"

    I think we're all feeling the sync combo of "King" and "Revolution" Yesterday I was confronted by an entire subway car filled with these two ads:

    I just read your convo with Michael. That's incredible and so spot on with where my head is. Perhaps your convo leaked into my subconscious.

    Your "new Adam" link leads us to "Ha-Rishon" as in Cary Elwes as George "Ha-Rishon" in Yellow Submarine.

    I'm going to have to send you an old script. Because you keep mentioning VERY SPECIFIC plot points from it. Bowie/JetLi(TheOne)/Old vs New Adam. My mind is blown.

  6. Let's not forget that Winona Ryder also starred in Beetlejuice, once again playing the reluctant (almost) bride of the King of the Dead.

    Free Winona! (Play spot-the-syncs in that magazine cover.)

    Currently reading Frankenstein--the original Edward Scissorhands. The monster compares himself to Adam.

  7. That magazine cover is quite the find. I feel like I'm looking at one of those old scholastic magazine games.
    I was trying to remember the name of the old magazine I was thinking of (which was "Highlights" I just now realized without finding my answer via google). What I found instead was this "Grammer" magazine which has a bunch of syncs for me right now:

  8. Dude, do you know that as soon as I saw the word "Grammer" on that magazine cover, I literally said "Kelsey Grammer" outloud.

    I didn't read those comments (for the record, I read all your posts, but I don't check back on the comments sections as often as I should). But, I hope you know by now that we're communicating without talking or pulling from the same source or both.

  9. Man you have blown my mind again... This syncs like crazy.

    I met a young woman on 1/11/11 (we keep having 11 11 or K K syncs when we go out) and we have since fallen in love with each other. Our first date was on a full moon and after dinner took her to walk a labyrinth (bowie) at lands end in SF. It turns out her mother gave her a book about labyrinths a few days before our date. The labyrinth is based on one from Chartes Cathedral and is symbolic of the sacred feminine. It is even said the heart is at the center of the labyrinth.

    She has nicknamed me "lucky" (green man/osiris), but didn't know why she came up with the name. She has a tattoo of 2 pierced hearts on her wrist and always wears a black fur coat like Johnny Depp in Deadman and mention that movie is the inspiration for her wearing the coat. We have been going on sync walks and have had a lot of sync based on Depps character being named William Blake.

    Also we keep going on dates and getting sat at tables where there are left over Valentines decorations. That even happend last night. We have been joking that everyday is Valentines day or "everyday's the 14th" like the Andre 3000 song from the album "The love below" we also joke we are vampires because we always end up staying up all night and going to sleep when the sun rises.

    The kicker to all this is she grew up on boats and runs the shipyard at a maritime museum. Last year Disney flew her out to Hawaii to oversee the rigging on the Black Pearl for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie!

    Crazy stuff man.

    Again thanks for writing, I am blown away by the syncs.
