Perhaps we are experiencing a validation of Terence McKenna's model of shortening time-cycles or even Eleleth's holographic Tarot cycles. Just as the RoyalWedding/Obama-Osama weekend was a major compression of events and patterns that we had observed throughout the year or more, so too does it feel like that cycle itself is being compressed for a new node of space-time.
Since the Large Hadron Collider was also part of the pattern, and we have the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 Stargate coming up, I suppose it should be no surprise that the Stargate motif appears central to this upcoming node.
Our last two posts, played into this idea. The lighting up the tree of life, or awakening of Kundalini energy, might have an echo in this Sunday's Pentecost (holiday of the White Sun, or the opening of the stargate of consciousness). For the record, in addition to June 12 Pentecost, I'll also be keeping an eye on June 14th and June 19th (should be an interesting week). Then there was the Frog King stuff, which seemed so oddly tied to the Obama/Osama SuicideKing narrative. The frogs, as we will see, are also intimately tied to this "mental stargate."
Hop to it:
Last night, as I was falling asleep, I was muling all this over. The first thing that came to me, when thinking of Obama as a Frog, was that video of Obama's "amazing reflexes" in catching a fly.
Obama is a Frog. He's a flycatcher! Note: That is his role. He is like a piece of fly-paper, there to get all the sh9t stuck to him (good and bad) and distracting you from the real power source. (Though, ultimately, I'd say it's less about "The Powers That Be" and more about remembering "The Power, That's Me")
When we first looked at that video a year ago, in a June 2010 post, Eleleth added a most perceptive comment:
I feel there is some significance in one of the principal characters in the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz being a Black Moorish King, as pictured also on Crowley's "Lovers" card. I am not quite ready to firmly declare what it means.
The Fly, a movie about a Teleportation Device, again as symbol of the stargate or the cracking of the cosmic egg.
It's all about Transformation....or as Obama's slogan calls it, "Change"
"Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor."
-PNAC page 51 (see 51 as 3x17 or as 5/1, date of Osama death)
In a lot of ways, 9/11 obviously was a catalyzing event. But I can't shake the feeling that it was only a first draft. I think there's a second stargate on our horizon.
You may recall, when I was writing about Chernobyl-like nuclear disaster and Japan (in January, two months before it happened), I also touched on the very 9/11-resonant movie Big Trouble, which also happens to feature a psychedelic frog.

Frogs and Pillars. Frog KINGS and Pillars...and stargates.
I believe I have mentioned Jack Kirby (who Chris Knowles calls "The King") had a Stargate device in the form of, well, you know...
Marvunapp.com: "The Brass Frog of King Solomon is a space/time travel device, shaped like twin frogs, which, fastened together, and operated by a knowledgeable user, can send any person into the past or future, or from the past or future into the present. Separated, one frog has the power to send people from the present to the past or future, and the other has the power to bring people from the past or future to the present. People brought to the present by the second frog include: Aladdin's Genie, Black Panther, Hatch-22 [catch 22?], Iron Man, the Loch Ness Monster, the President of the United States, the Prime Minister of Canada, and a warlord. When the two frogs are stacked upon each other, they can allow the wielders to travel light years through space to another location."
So, this King Solomon guy has a Stargate made out of Brass? Where do you find one of those?
1 Kings 7:13-22 (KJV) describes part of the architecture of Solomon's Temple relating to the Columns placed in front of the temple.
13. And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre.
15. For he cast two pillars of brass,....16. And he made two chapiters of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars...
21. And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Joachim: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz.
So Kirby (The King) had stargate-frogs made out of brass, and King Solomon had stargate-pillars made out of brass, and the WTC had them made of Steel. The alchemical view of the Toad, from the link shared with us by Eleleth, was that the Frog was either gold or the first-stage/potential of gold. He was sort of the initiator of the stargate sequence:
Now, the transformative or even trans-dimentional weirdness surrounding Frogs has obvious corollaries to topics like Psychedelic Toads, already briefly touched upon. Surprising to me, of the correspondence I receive from this blog, I would say 95% of it is in relation to psychedelics. You don't usually see it in the comments section, but I do get private emails about it. As I said, this is somewhat surprising to me, since I don't write about it all that often. At first, the paranoid in me thought it was some sort of government sting. But I have come to accept that these are people left with so many questions after such a foreign experience that they want to talk about it and share information. I understand completely. I want to talk about it too. The psychedelic experience is a persistent theme, and it is something that lingers in the context of these conversations and in the minds of anyone who has ever beheld its mysteries. Though I honestly haven't taken psychedelics in years, I still think about those experiences all the time. For the record, the reason I don't take them is because I do not think they are ultimately necessary. They are one option, one set of keys, to open this stargate of consciousness. The way I see it, LSD showed me there was a door that I never had seen before. But, now that I know it is there, there seems little reason for continued use of chemical substances.
I recently read a description of the psychedelic experience as "Load universe into cannon. Point at brain. Fire."
That was in a review for God the Dyslexic Dog, another comic that features Thor being turned into a Frog!! So let's look at some of these frog-psychedelic connections.
Here's a message I received last night. I assume the author wants to remain anonymous, but if not, you know who you are and should feel free to chime in:
There was an email from a different person, who said they wanted to remain anonymous, but same rules apply: Chime in whenever you feel comfortable, if you want to. They saw the psychedelic frog as the obvious connector the imagery we have been discussing here.
Note, in this image, it is actually the Mushroom (named Toad) that is killing the Frog King. Suicide King, much? Are we perhaps speaking of Ego-death or death of the Reptilian brain?
These images reminded me of an old Kotze video, but in this new context, I love how Michael commented on the last post, connecting Frogs to Moses and Exodus.
Adding (in reference to a Terence McKenna video): "to me, Terence is a Moses character, the guy who led us to the Promised Land but who died before we cross the River Jordan (Hudson). If Terence is Moses, then we're the "Joshua" character - the ones who conquer and possess the PL."
Where does Moses fit in to this? Ask Jake Kotze:
Hmm, Cubic Stargate Initiating Contact?
Fungi and strange vortexes of (ego) death?
Mushrooms being used by Muppets to make Contact with space aliens?
Muppets tearing down the pillars of duality, stepping through the 9/11 stargate?
The reason I am rehashing some of this old stuff and bringing it back up into our current study, is because something hit me last week in a very powerful way.
I was watching the movie Nim's Island (which probably deserves it's own post) and at first I'm noticing all the creepy sexualization of the young girl, then all the strange daddy-daughter creepiness and so on. Then I realize the whole thing is steeped in parallels to Egyptian mythology (in this case I think intentionally). So I start looking at it from that perspective. Then I notice that they are paralleling two of the characters, the young girl and Jodie Foster (who herself had a role in Taxi Driver where she was a child prostitute, adding to the creepyness).
Then, the whole f-ing movie culminates with Jodie Foster's arduous journey to get to this Beach, where the young girl, who Jodie Foster is paralleling here, is reunited with her daddy.
So now I'm thinking about the movie Contact, which has Jodie Foster go through a literal-stargate then culminates with Jodie Foster's arduous journey to get to this Beach, where Jodie Foster is reunited with her daddy.
So, for the last week, I've been thinking about Contact non-stop. It doesn't hurt that Jodie Foster is connected to The King:
And an attempted King Kill...
Nor does it hurt that Jodie starred in Inside Man (Inside Job), which was filmed right outside my job when I worked off Wall Street, a few blocks from the WTC site.
The film was shot on location in New York City and features an expansive and diverse ensemble cast. In addition to being a cerebral crime thriller, the film handles issues of good and evil in unexpected sources, corruption, prejudice, multiculturalism in United States (and New York City in particular) post-September 11, 2001, and leaves several interpretations of right and wrong open to the audience.
At the end of Inside Man, we find out what the whole movie was really about (Nazis and Rings) when a note is handed off with the message:
So now I sort of took that as a personal message. Only one problem....
What about this ring?
(See: Gosporn's "Listen Up")
Maybe these rings?
That seems about right for now.
Contact is easily compared to 2001: A Space Odyssey, since they both feature astronauts (Bowman in 2001 and Arroway in Contact) going through a stargate, then making "contact," which is portrayed as a sort of psychedelic interface with higher intelligence.
Wiki even tells us that "During the development of Contact, the production crew simultaneously watched Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) for inspiration."
However, while the connections between 9/11 and 2001: A Space Odyssey have been well documented...
...I've yet to see anyone point out that in Contact, "On the day of testing the machine, a religious fanatic obliterates the [stargate] in a suicide bombing."
Ah, but here it gets more interesting.
However, after the destruction, the mysterious and secretive Hadden reveals to Arroway that there is in fact a second [stargate], hidden in Japan, and in fact Arroway will be the "pilot."
You see? Kotze was right, 9/11 was a Stargate, but it was marred by violence. However, there is a second wave of whatever combined energies brought that event into manifestation.
It is also worth noting that for Contact, "Zemeckis had initially approached Sidney Poitier to play the President, but the actor turned the role down." The president that would be in office for the Stargate opening wasn't meant to be Bill Clinton (as it was in the film), but his later manifestation as Obama, a Black Man President (or a "Black Moorish King").
...I lack the hubris to put too much weight into this, but I will say it. For the last few months I have been editing a book about Synchronicity which will combine the efforts of 22 bloggers: Jake Kotze and many of the SyncWhole writers (Kevin, Jim, Will, Stefan, Tommy, Toure), the team from Mask of God (including Eleleth, Michael, Eunus Noe, Crystal, Sibyl, Justin), Goro Adachi, Neil Kramer, Jen Palmer from Reality Sandwhich, Jeremy aka ViolatoR from The Stygian Port, Kyle Hunt from Star Theory, and a bunch of others. Read about it, and if you have FaceBook, be sure to "like" it here. I just put up that FB page, but there will be a lot more there soon.
Anyway, the book is just about done. And the other day, as I realized that we'd end up with a late August or early September release date, I said to myself...this should come out on 9/11. It seems like a fitting way to reopen the stargate, this time with a message of love and peace.
Like I said, I can't put too much weight into it, but this feels great. Maybe, just maybe, with enough of us putting our heads and hearts together, we can open that sucker up and do it right this time. I hope you'll join us - because either way, we are the initiators of our own future.
