I pray that you will come along with me on this journey. It is so packed with information that is extremely relevant to the day we are facing.
Each one of the items in this post are important. I have tried to remove those things that were not necessary. However, the post is still very long. I pray you don’t find it to difficult to stay with. I did not want to discover the information and then just share with you what I learned. I wanted you to discover it with me. It has more meaning that way, and you are free to draw your own conclusions. Accept what you can, and keep the rest instore, for such a time as it has more meaning to you.
This coming Vaccine Program is wrought with so much evil. I hope that you have been following my posts. I don’t want you to be caught unaware or unprepared for the dark days that are at our doorstep.
Here is what I recently learned about those things that are involved with the distribution of the MANDATORY VACCINE.
I pray that once you have reviewed this entire article you will be thoroughly convinced that the names they select for these kinds of things have very real intent. Nothing they do is undertaken without serious thought.

Operation Warp Speed technology, expertise help determine vaccine distribution
By Lisa Simunaci
Office of the Secretary of Defense Public Affairs
Published November 02, 2020
Ten military officers assigned to Operation Warp Speed are embedded at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to assist the allocation and distribution of COVID-19 vaccine.
Operation Warp Speed, led by the Department of Health and Human Services and DOD, employs a “whole of America” approach to develop and deliver 300 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and therapeutics to treat the virus.
More than 600 miles from Operation Warp Speed headquarters in Washington D.C., each of the Army, Navy and Air Force officers in Atlanta are teamed with a CDC regional coordinator responsible for a specific area of the country and its territories.
“The country’s existing public health infrastructure is well tested – we see evidence every fall when Americans receive the flu vaccine in large numbers. But these are not normal times,” said Army Gen. Gus Perna, Operation Warp Speed’s Chief Operating Officer. “Leveraging our military planning and logistics capability and combining that with proven methods will allow existing systems to scale quickly to get the vaccine to the American people.”
The military liaisons and partner regional coordinators are communicating daily with various agencies within their assigned regions to discuss how vaccines will be prioritized, packaged and shipped. Information exchanges are continuous as regions work through the special handling instructions – like cold storage – and other considerations surrounding delivery.
“Like most of America, public health professionals are working through the challenges brought on by quarantines, telework and social distancing,” said Deacon Maddox, Operation Warp Speed’s chief of plans, operations and analytics. “While the pandemic stresses both people and systems, our expertise and technology tools provide a disciplined and deliberate approach to prioritize vaccine delivery and ease the burden of public health officials throughout the nation.”
Operation Warp Speed is using a cutting-edge data platform to collect, correlate and visualize data across the entire operation. The “Tiberius” platform is loaded with data from various sources – U.S. Census, Department of Health and Human Services, State Health Offices, and the CDC. Tiberius integrates the data related to manufacturing, clinical trials, supply chain, allocation, state and territory planning, delivery and administration of both vaccine products and kits containing needles, syringes, and other supplies needed to administer the vaccine. No personally identifiable or personal health information is contained in the Tiberius system. (RIGHT…SURE… we believe that.)
All 50 states recently submitted COVID-19 distribution plans to the CDC, and the Operation Warp Speed team is involved in helping the CDC review those plans. Once the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices makes its recommendations on who should first receive the vaccine, the HHS secretary, in consultation with national leadership, will decide how to prioritize the initially limited doses. Operation Warp Speed will input these decisions into Tiberius, and using several other logistical factors, compute the quantities to be allocated to each jurisdiction. The jurisdictions will work inside the Tiberius platform to decide where every allocated dose will go – from local doctors’ offices to large medical centers. These decisions will then be sent to distributors to complete deliveries across the country.
“We still have several unknowns, but that is what the military is best at – planning for every contingency, and that is what we are helping states with now,” Maddox said. “Every state is different – no two information systems are the same.”
Through the Tiberius software though, Maddox said the team has visibility within one system to see a full snapshot across all U.S. jurisdictions to provide decision support for distribution and allocation using 2020 technology.
While most of the nation is eagerly anticipating the first vaccine delivery, Maddox noted the Atlanta team is looking beyond initial distribution to the hundreds of millions of doses expected in subsequent shipments.
“Timing for the first dose is the beginning, but we are going to be in continual distribution as production comes off the line daily or weekly – and it must be distributed,” Maddox said.
DEAGLE REPORT NUMBERS NOW MAKE SENSE :THIS IS WHAT THEY HAVE IN STORE FOR USA POPULATION REDUCTION,THATS WHY THEY CHOSE THE NAME OF A DEPRAVED ROMAN EMPORER,
Something I found in research tonight. The recent CBS interview of the Operation Warp Speed General, overseeing the vaccine deploymentrevealed that…..
– they are calling the day they will deploy the vax “D-Day“
– he will give the one word command “Execute” and the already stockpiled vax will be deployed in 24 hours
– most importantly, the software program that does the logistics tracking is called “TIBERIUS.”
When I went to look up the meaning of this name, I was drawn to the Britannica site link and this was what I found in the description
“It is the remaining decade or so of Tiberius’s life that has given rise to the legend of Tiberius the monster. It seems probable, to begin with, that Tiberius, never handsome, had become repulsively ugly. First his skin broke out in blotches, and then his complexion became covered with pus-filled eruptions, exuding a bad smell and causing a good deal of pain. He built himself a dozen villas ringing Capri, with prisons, underground dungeons, torture chambers, and places of execution.“
and what does that sound like, but what happens in Revelation to those who take the mark of the beasteventually. They are telling us in a sick joke of a name...it’s right there. This is all starting to add up. K.

TIBERIUS was an extremely perverted being.
The Emperor surrounded himself with astrologers and academics, and continued the literary interests that had always given him pleasure, but the rumour mill went into overdrive with tales of alcohol, sex and violence: Tiberius was such a hard drinker that his name, Tiberius Claudius Nero, was mutated into Biberius Caldius Mero, ‘Drunkard Hot-wine Unmixed-wine’; in his aptly named ‘latrines’ groups of specially selected girls and young men, known as spintriae – so perverted that new vocabulary had to be invented to describe their activities – would perform threesomes completed by exoleti, ‘adult’ prostitutes;22 there were pornographic artworks and manuals everywhere; he went swimming with his ‘little fishes’, boys who would get between his thighs to lick and nibble him; suckling babies would be made to fellate him; a fisherman who gave him an enormous mullet had his face rubbed with it, and when he yelled ‘Thank Heaven, I did not bring Caesar that huge crab I also caught!’ Tiberius used the crab in the same way; men were tricked into drinking huge amounts of wine, and then had cords tied round their genitals to prevent them from urinating; and people were thrown from the cliffs of Capri, and battered to death with boat hooks if they survived. All this came from the man who notoriously said: ‘Let them hate me, so long as they accept me!’23 Source
There was one statement within the same text that I found very interesting and relevant to our current society.
“For a feeling of kinship leads him to protect every famous monument.”
We will see as we go along that not only was he from the DEMIGOD bloodline, he was very much connected to the gods, and in fact considered himself and his brother to be GODS. That is why he was determined to protect the Temples and artifacts of their worship. Which is the same spirit in our current society. The reason they are resurrecting and rebuilding the Temples and artifacts of the Ancients is because the SPIRITS/Demons/Demigods have returned or at the very least are returning.
So, we see that TIBERIUS is an absolute monster and a totalitarian tyrannt. He loves torture and bloodshed and sexual perversions of every kind. He built FEMA CAMPS, UNDERGROUND BASES, and DUNGEONS with TORTURE CHAMBERS… Sounds like the NEW WORLD ORDER to me. Apparently, TIBERIUS is just the one to get the job done. Make no mistake…TIBERIUS is a god to the Elite. Keep reading you will see that he is a man who became god… just like Nimrod.

(Ok, I was studying this coin. The description says the coin depicts crossed cornucopia and the winged caduceus. That does not look like a caduceus to me…it looks like a TRIDENT. What do you think? The TRIDENT being the symbol of NEPTUNE/aka Dagon first pagan deity/aka BAAL. The TRIDENT represents authroity over the WINDS, STORMS and THE SEA along with ALL SEAFARERS. Keep with me… you will discover how that applies.)
TURNS OUT they also have a new plan for money also named TIBERIUS, and based on precious metals.
What is the Tiberius Coin?
The Tiberius Coin (“T-Coin”) is the first crypto-financial product that grants you direct ownership to a basket of strategic metals that we believe are key to forward-thinking technologies. Tokens act like ownership receipts for an identical allocation and quantity of metals. The metal is held and audited by independent warehouses, and available for delivery on request.

Every digital token should simply be thought of as digital identification of the ownership of:
- Technology metals: 25g copper, 5g tin
- Electric Vehicle metals: 25g aluminum, 6g nickel, 1g cobalt
- Stability metals: 3mg gold, 1.5mg platinum
We only mint tokens after the metal has been independently audited, so you know that it corresponds to existing material, and because of this, the token price can never hit zero. Tiberius Coin has all the upside of the technology markets, but none of the downside commonly associated with bitcoin and other volatile cryptos.
Human prosperity in its very essence is derived from technology’s ability to create value. Over $32 trillion of new economic growth will be unleashed by technologies such as advanced robotics and AI (+US$ 11tn), the Internet of Things and cloud technology (+US$ 12tn), and autonomous electric vehicles (+US$ 4.5tn).
All you have to do is look to the future and see that growth and technology are intertwined. An unstoppable movement has already begun. Everyday devices are becoming “smarter,” technology is becoming more integrated and wearable, and all of these devices and the hardware are all made of metal.
With Tiberius Coin, you can take the first step in profiting from the metal markets as they grow. For decades, commodities have been gated, making it difficult for retail investors to take part. But we’re changing that. Now, retail investors can take part in the metal markets using the power of the blockchain.
Tiberius Reign As Emperor
Ironically, the death of Drusus, the event that brought Sejanus to power, may have been Sejanus’s own doing. Apparently Sejanus had seduced the wife of the younger Drusus, Livilla, and induced her to become his accomplice in murdering her husband. The evidence is not absolute and has been questioned by many historians, but it was not questioned by Tiberius. In 27 CE, at age 67, Tiberius left Rome to visit some of the southern parts of Italy. En route he paused to go to the island of Capri. His intention appears to have been only to stay for a time, but he never returned to Rome. It is the remaining decade or so of Tiberius’s life that has given rise to the legend of Tiberius the monster. It seems probable, to begin with, that Tiberius, never handsome, had become repulsively ugly. First his skin broke out in blotches, and then his complexion became covered with pus-filled eruptions, exuding a bad smell and causing a good deal of pain. He built himself a dozen villas ringing Capri, with prisons, underground dungeons, torture chambers, and places of execution. He filled his villas with treasure and art objects of every kind and with the enormous retinue appropriate to a Caesar: servants, guards, entertainers, philosophers, astrologers, musicians, and seekers after favour. If the near-contemporary historians are to be believed, his favourite entertainments were cruel and obscene. Even under the most favourable interpretation, he killed ferociously and almost at random. It is probable that by then his mind was disordered.
Tiberius and the Heavenly Twins
This paper aims to illustrate the practical application of myth in public life under the early
Principate. It begins by sketching the deep historical affection of the people of Rome for the twins Castor and Pollux, and the great posthumous popularity of Nero Claudius Drusus for generations after his death in 9 B.C. Concentrating on the dedicatory inscription of the Temple of Castor and Pollux in Rome, the paper argues that Tiberius Caesar, notoriously addicted to mythology, crafted a potent public association between the heavenly twins and himself and his brother Drusus, and it goes on to examine the effect of that association.
The story was inspired by two men who became gods, Castor and Pollux. Originally Kastor and Polydeukes, the immensely popular twins of Greek myth were also commonly known as the Dioskouroi, Zeus’ boys, or the Tyndaridai, the sons of their earthly father Tyndaros. The reports of their parentage and birth are complex and contradictory. In some strands, they and their sister, Helen of Troy, were all three the children of Leda and Tyndaros, the King of Sparta; in others, they were the offspring of Leda and Zeus, who had visited the queen in the form of a swan, (Interesting, would that be the BLACK SWAN?) and they may or may not have been hatched from an egg or eggs. (and there we have the OCCULT association with the egg, the “alien” egg.) But, most importantly, at some point it became established that Polydeukes was, or was potentially, immortal, while Kastor was born to die: possibly because they had different fathers, Zeus and Tyndaros. Each brother had a special talent recognized as early as Homer, for in the Iliad their sister Helen calls them ‘Kastor, breaker of horses, and the strong boxer, Polydeukes’.
The twins were renowned as heroes in two great expeditions, the Calydonian boar hunt and the voyage of the Argo, as well as in a few adventures of their own, but they are best remembered for what happened after their death. Kastor was cut down in a brawl. As he lay dying, Polydeukes prayed to Zeus that he be allowed to die with his brother.
Zeus offered him a choice: either to live forever himself with the gods on Olympus, or
to share Kastor’s fate, alternating with him one day under the earth and one day on Olympus. Polydeukes chose the latter. How this alternation was effected is a matter of ancient debate, essentially over whether the brothers were together in each place for a day or actually exchanged places with each other. But invariably, in literature and in
history, they appear after death as divinities together, and they represent the very incarnation of brotherly love.
Polydeukes’ choice was decisive. Early on the brothers became the saviour gods, soteres, the averters of evil, alexikakoi. Like Herakles, these divinized mortals were great helpers of their fellow man, with two areas of special concern. They were famed as the protectors of sailors especially, and of all travellers by sea: in one version of their story, Zeus placed them among the stars as the Gemini, the heavenly twins, and Poseidon rewarded their brotherly love with command of the winds, whereby they became the saviours of shipwrecked mariners. They also developed an inclination to appear and bring or announce victory in battle, the most famous instance in Greek history being the Spartan defeat of Athens
at the sea battle of Aegospotami in 405 B.C. On that occasion they materialized as two stars, but normally by land you could recognize them by a handful of particular human attributes: they turned up at critical moments as a pair of beautiful young men mounted on white horses, bearing spears in their hands and wearing on their heads the distinctive pilleus, the half-egg-shaped hat or helmet, often crowned by a star.
Their cult spread from Sparta throughout Greece, and eventually to Sicily and Southern Italy in the West, from where it early established itself in Latium around Rome. Some fifty years ago a bronze tablet was excavated at a temple in the territory of Lavinium which bore the dedication in archaic Latin: ‘Castorei Podlouqueique qurois’, ‘to Castor and Pollux, the kuroi’.
The dating of the tablet to the late sixth century B.C. accords marvellously with the
dramatic entrance of the Dioscuri into Roman history, at the Battle of Lake Regillus,
traditionally assigned to 499 or 496 B.C. According to the common version of this story, at the height of a battle between the Romans and their Latin neighbours, the dictator
Aulus Postumius vowed a temple to Castor and Pollux if they would come to his aid.
They did, and the Romans won. Later that same day two tall and handsome young men, battle-weary and in military gear, appeared at Rome, to wash and water their horses in Lacus Iuturnae, the Pool of Juturna, at the eastern end of the Forum, near the Temple of Vesta. They announced the victory to passers-by before disappearing, and the next day news arrived from the dictator, reporting the details and the divine intervention. Their temple, usually called the Temple of Castor, was erected in the south-eastern corner of the Forum, next to the Pool of Juturna, and it was dedicated by the dictator’s son in 484
B.C. So went the standard (but not necessarily correct) version of the arrival of the heavenly twins in Rome.
Castor and Pollux reappeared in the Forum to announce victories at other crucial moments in Roman history — after the great battles of Pydna (168 B.C.), Vercellae (101 B.C.), and Pharsalus (48 B.C.) — and their temple became one of the focal points of the community by the time of the Late Republic, a meeting-place for the Senate within, a speakers’ platform and voting area without, a centre for debate and riot. Above all, as warriors on horseback the brothers became patrons of the Roman knights who, every year on 15 July, the anniversary of the battle, celebrated a great equestrian parade, the transvectio equitum. Up to 5,000 of them, wearing olive crowns and dressed in purple robes with scarlet stripes, attended the annual sacrifice at the Temple of Mars out on the Via Appia and then rode in procession through the city and the Forum to pass by the Temple of Castor on their way to the Capitol. The temple was also a hub of activity in daily life, a sort of bank and repository of weights and measures, surrounded by various enterprises: cobblers, moneylenders, a cloakmaker, and slave-dealers are attested, and there were certainly taverns nearby. Some twenty-nine shops were actually built into the
podium beneath the temple, one of which was a combination barbershop-beauty
salon-gaming parlour-pharmacy and dentist’s office, where dozens of extracted teeth were
excavated in the 1980s, along with what may be tongue depressors and probes, not to
mention coins, gaming-pieces, jars for unguents, drinking glasses, and cups.7 If the scores
of oaths in Roman comedy are any guide to life in the streets — ‘Ecastor!’ or
‘Mecastor!’, and even more ‘Edepol!’: By Castor! By Pollux! — the twin gods who
presided over this bustle were casually called upon by everyone everywhere. In sum: Castor and Pollux were deeply embedded in the Roman consciousness; they conjured up specific vivid images; and they were very popular indeed.
According to tradition, their ancient temple was dedicated on 27 January 484 B.C. It was restored sometime in the second century; reconstructed in 117 B.C. by the triumphing general L. Caecilius Metellus Delmaticus; repaired to some extent in 74 B.C. by the notorious praetor Gaius Verres; and then rebuilt by Tiberius Caesar and dedicated by him on 27 January A.D. 6, in his own name and that of his brother Drusus, who had died in the autumn of 9 B.C.
Tiberius in fact completely replaced the five-hundred-year-old Temple of Castor in the heart of Rome with a new building dedicated to the immortal twins by two brothers, one by now the co-ruler with, and son and heir apparent of, the Princeps Augustus, the other dead now thirteen years and more. This association of Tiberius and Drusus with Castor and Pollux at the heart of Rome was a brilliant political statement, emotive, even provocative.
Fitting nicely within this display of dynastic concord came the announcement that he would
restore the great temple dedicated to Concordia at the north-western end of the Forum. But
Dio’s account prompts questions. Why choose a structure freighted with uncomfortably
Republican associations, one that commemorated the bloody conclusion of a period of
violent discord, the suppression of Gaius Gracchus and his followers in 121 B.C.? What
‘restoration’ did the temple need, and why did Tiberius in fact then completely rebuild it?
Most curiously, what does Dio mean when he gives as Tiberius’ motive for repairing the
Temple of Concord the arresting ‘so that he might inscribe upon it his own name and that
There, on 27 January A.D. 6, he at last dedicated the
great temple in the Forum in his own name and that of Drusus – Tiberius dedicated ‘the Temple of the Dioscuri, upon which he inscribed not only his own name — calling himself Claudianus instead of Claudius, because of his adoption into the family of Augustus — but also that of Drusus’. Castor and Pollux.
On 16 January A.D. 10, the anniversary of the day on which Augustus had received the name ‘Augustus’. Thus Dio, ‘The Temple of Concord was dedicated by Tiberius, and both his name and that of Drusus, his dead brother, were inscribed upon it.’
28 The Forum now shone with not one but two gleaming and very new versions of its largest temples, overflowing with carefully selected old master paintings and sculptures, all allegedly paid for by the triumphal spoils of two brothers, one of whom had returned from virtual exile less than eight years before, while the other had been dead for seventeen years.29 In short, Tiberius Caesar took immense care to erect two enormous public shrines in the heart of Rome, marble clad, bursting with artworks, that explicitly, in their dedicatory
inscriptions, and implicitly, in the deities whom they honoured, immortalized his
relationship with his brother
Whatever their state of disrepair — each was little more than a century old, and both had been worked on in the intervening years — the essential point is that Tiberius did not repair or restore them: he replaced them, on a larger scale. And the only motive we are given, in the
case of Concord and again from Dio, is that he wanted to inscribe his own and Drusus’
names on it. His reconstruction of the text reads as follows:
On the left side of the frieze:
[Ti(berius)] C[aesar Augusti f(ilius) Divi n(epos) Claudianus],
[co(n)]s(ul) [iter(um), imp(erator) ter, tribunic(ia) pot(estate) VII, pontif(ex)],
On the right side:
[Nero Claudius Ti(beri) f(ilius) Drusus Germa]ni[cus],
[Augusti privignus, co(n)s(ul), i]imp(erator) [iter(um)], au[gur],
And beneath these, in larger letters, running the entire length of the architrave:
[aedem Pollucis e]t C[asto]r[is incendio consumptam de manubiis r]ef(ecerunt).32
That is, Alföldy suggests that the names and titles of the two dedicators will have appeared
in shallow twin columns, side by side: ‘Tiberius Caesar, son of Augustus, grandson of the god (Julius), Claudianus, consul twice, imperator three times, in the seventh year of his tribunician power, pontifex’, and ‘Nero Claudius, son of Tiberius, Drusus Germanicus, stepson of Augustus, consul, imperator twice, augur’. And along the bottom, in a third line, the dedication concludes ‘rebuilt with their spoils the Temple of Pollux and Castor when it had been destroyed by fire’.
Temple of Castor and Pollux

The Temple of Castor and Pollux in the Roman Forum of Rome was erected in the final decade of the 1st century BCE, replacing the earlier temple to the twin sons of Jupiter which had stood on the site since 484 BCE. Today only the inner concrete core of the podium and three columns survive of this once massive structure.Castor and Pollux, in Roman mythology, were the twin demi-god offspring of Jupiter and Ledaand equivalent to the Dioscuri of Greek mythology. They are also represented in the constellation Gemini. Pollux was considered immortal whilst his brother was mortal; both were particularly associated with cavalry and the cult of the twins went back to the mid-6th century BCE in Italy.The original temple in Rome was dedicated by the Roman general Aulus Postumius who won a great victory against the Latins in the Battle of Lake Regillus (499 or 496 BCE). During the battle two young men riding white horses were said to have appeared and guided the Romans to victoryand then were seen again after the battle watering their horses at the Juturna Spring in Rome, hence the subsequent dedication to the famous cavalry twins and choice of location for the temple next to the fountain. Parts of the original temple’s podium survive and hint at its great size.EVERY 15TH OF JULY THE TEMPLE WAS THE FOCUS OF A CAVALRY PARADE OF 5,000 MEN TO COMMEMORATE THE VICTORY AT REGILLUS.
Every 15th of July the temple was the focus of a cavalry parade – the transvectio – of 5,000 men led by two impersonators of the heroes who commemorated the victory at Regillus. Renovations to the temple, which came to be more associated with Castor following the hero’s adoption by Roman knights (equites), were made in the first and last quarters of the 2nd century BCE, notably in 117 BCE by LuciusCaecilius Metellus Delmaticus following his victory over the Dalmatians.
Following the devastating fire of 14 or 9 BCE Augustus rebuilt the temple, made the cult an official imperial one and initiated a newfeast day for the pair on the 27th of January.The emperor also sought to associate his own two sons – Gaius and Lucius Caesar– with the heroes and their temple. However, both children were to die before completion of the project and so were substituted by Tiberius and his late brother Drusus in 6 CE, the former was also responsible for the final restorations.
Constructed in white marble and tufa, the new temple was a massive structure measuring 32 x 50 m and reached a height of almost 19 m. The facades had 8 Corinthian columns whilst the sides each had 11. The original front entrance was composed of twin staircases with a speaker’s platform, changed in the 3rd century CE to a single staircase. The interior of the temple was quite complex and consisted of some 25 small chambers. The temple served as the office of weights and measures with an additional function as a bank. From the 4th century CE the temple gradually fell into decline with only three columns now standing silent testimony to the lost grandeur of this once magnificent building.
So, we see that the TIBERIAN TEMPLE served as the Office of Weights and Measures (COMMERCE) and a Bank (FINANCE). Therefore, it ruled over MONEY.
Interestingly enough, TIBERIUS was the CEASAR of the time of JESUS CHRIST. IT was Tiberius Caesar whom this famous scripture referenced:
And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words. And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? Shall we give, or shall we not give?
But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.
Below is one of those same kind of coins to which Jesus referred:
The Pervert and the Madman: Tiberius (14–37) and Gaius ‘Caligula’ (37–41)1 Tacitus, Annals 1.12
The Second Emperor of Rome
To the Divine Augusti [i.e., Augustus and Livia] [this] Tiberieum [probably a complex of buildings in honour of Tiberius] . . . Pontius Pilatus . . . Prefect of Judaea . . . has dedicated [this].24
Jesus was pretty certainly crucified on a Friday,25 probably on or near Passover (this falls on Nisan in the Hebrew calendar and is calculated from the appearance of the new moon), but the year, and hence the month, is heavily disputed. Differing theories have been constructed from the accounts in the Canonical Gospels, from the chronology of St Paul’s conversion (around 33–36,26 just after the Crucifixion), and from astronomical calculations going back to Sir Isaac Newton that take into account solar or lunar eclipses (some accounts say that a period of darkness occurred at the Crucifixion).
JULIO-CLAUDIAN DYNASTY from wikipedia
The Julio-Claudian dynasty comprised the first five Roman emperors: Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero. They ruled the Roman Empire from its formation under Augustus in 27 BC until AD 68, when the last of the line, Nero, committed suicide. The name “Julio-Claudian” is a historiographical term derived from the two families which composed the imperial dynasty: the Julii Caesares and Claudii Nerones.
Primogeniture is notably absent in the history of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. Neither Augustus, Caligula, nor Nero fathered a natural and legitimate son. Tiberius’ own son, Drusus predeceased him. Only Claudius was outlived by his son, Britannicus, although he opted to promote his adopted son Nero as his successor to the throne. Adoption ultimately became a tool that most Julio-Claudian emperors utilized in order to promote their chosen heir to the front of the succession. Augustus—himself an adopted son of his great-uncle, the Roman dictator Julius Caesar—adopted his stepson Tiberius as his son and heir. Tiberius was, in turn, required to adopt his nephew Germanicus, the father of Caligula and brother of Claudius. Caligula adopted his cousin Tiberius Gemellus (grandson of the emperor Tiberius) shortly before executing him. Claudius adopted his great-nephew and stepson Nero, who, lacking a natural or adopted son of his own, ended the reign of the Julio-Claudian dynasty with his fall from power and subsequent suicide.
The ancient historians who dealt with the Julio-Claudian period—chiefly Suetonius (c. 69 – after 122 AD) and Tacitus (c. 56 – after AD 117)—write in generally negative terms about their reign. In Tacitus’s historiography of the Julio-Claudian emperors, he states:
But the successes and reverses of the old Roman people have been recorded by famous historians; and fine intellects were not wanting to describe the times of Augustus, till growing sycophancy scared them away. The histories of Tiberius, Gaius, Claudius, and Nero, while they were in power, were falsified through terror, and after their death were written under the irritation of a recent hatred.
Julians and Claudians – TIBERIUS
Category: Business and political leaders
Tiberius (Latin: Tiberius Caesar Dīvī Augustī Fīlius Augustus;
16 November 42 BC – 16 March 37 AD)
was a Roman Emperor from 14 AD to 37 AD.
Born Tiberius Claudius Nero, a Claudian, Tiberius was the son of Tiberius Claudius Nero and Livia Drusilla. His mother divorced Nero and married Octavian, later known as Augustus, in 39 BC, making him a step-son of Octavian.
Tiberius would later marry Augustus’ daughter (from his marriage to Scribonia), Julia the Elder, and even later be adopted by Augustus, by which act he officially became a Julian, bearing the name Tiberius Julius Caesar. The subsequent emperors after Tiberius would continue this blended dynasty of both families for the following thirty years; historians have named it the Julio-Claudian dynasty. In relations to the other emperors of this dynasty, Tiberius was the stepson of Augustus, grand-uncle of Caligula, paternal uncle of Claudius, and great-grand uncle of Nero.
So why is he on the site? …The answer is that he was a nyctalope – someone who could see in the dark, someone with night vision. In Tiberius’s case he only had the ability when he was in a hypnagogic state, but some people have the capability without needing to be in this state. Although the observation implies it was because he had big eyes, this is not the reason he could do this. Many people when they are asleep go out of body, and in the out of body state everything is infused with a sort of light, that means that there is no ‘dark’ as such.
This is why some supposedly blind people can ‘see’, they are permanently out of body or receiving spiritual images from the composer on a permanent basis.
Now, this particular article took me in a whole other direction. We obviously know that this whole business is very related to the Fallen Angels/Demons/Spirits. This article brings another aspect of that too light. Before I go into TIGERIUS even further. I want to look at PALANTIR, the company of origin for the TIGERIUS software.
Documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden reveal Palantir’s role in creating the U.S. government’s international spy machine.
Palantir has never masked its ambitions, in particular the desire to sell its services to the U.S. government — the CIA itself was an early investor in the startup through In-Q-Tel, the agency’s venture capital branch. But Palantir refuses to discuss or even name its government clientele, despite landing “at least $1.2 billion” in federal contracts since 2009, according to an August 2016 report in Politico. The company was last valued at $20 billion and is expected to pursue an IPO in the near future. In a 2012 interview with TechCrunch, while boasting of ties to the intelligence community, Karp said nondisclosure contracts prevent him from speaking about Palantir’s government work.
“Palantir” is generally used interchangeably to refer to both Thiel and Karp’s company and the software that company creates. Its two main products are Palantir Gotham and Palantir Metropolis, more geeky winks from a company whose Tolkien namesake is a type of magical sphere used by the evil lord Sauron to surveil, trick, and threaten his enemies across Middle Earth. While Palantir Metropolis is pegged to quantitative analysis for Wall Street banks and hedge funds, Gotham (formerly Palantir Government) is designed for the needs of intelligence, law enforcement, and homeland security customers. (So, we have banking and Commerce, just like the Temple of Castor under TIGERIUS) Gotham works by importing large reams of “structured” data (like spreadsheets) and “unstructured” data (like images) into one centralized database, where all of the information can be visualized and analyzed in one workspace. (Being able to “see in the dark”, to view and analyze ALL DATA) For example, a 2010 demo showed how Palantir Government could be used to chart the flow of weapons throughout the Middle East by importing disparate data sources like equipment lot numbers, manufacturer data, and the locations of Hezbollah training camps. Palantir’s chief appeal is that it’s not designed to do any single thing in particular, but is flexible and powerful enough to accommodate the requirements of any organization that needs to process large amounts of both personal and abstract data.
Palantir Foundry 21 Launch/Demo Day
Despite all the grandstanding about lucrative, shadowy government contracts, co-founder Karp does not shy away from taking a stand in the debate over government surveillance. In a Forbes profile in 2013, he played privacy lamb, saying, “I didn’t sign up for the government to know when I smoke a joint or have an affair. … We have to find places that we protect away from government so that we can all be the unique and interesting and, in my case, somewhat deviant people we’d like to be.” In that same article, Thiel lays out Palantir’s mission with privacy in mind: to “reduce terrorism while preserving civil liberties.” After the first wave of revelations spurred by the whistleblower Edward Snowden, Palantir was quick to deny that it had any connection to the NSA spy program known as PRISM, which shared an unfortunate code name with one of its own software products. The current iteration of Palantir’s website includes an entire section dedicated to “Privacy & Civil Liberties,” proclaiming the company’s support of both:
Palo Alto: At Palo Alto Networks, employees are winning the battle against cybersecurity threats. … With a culture that embraces authenticity, collaboration, and ground-breaking innovation, the team at Palo Alto Networks is unlike any other in the world as it protects the digital way of life. Source
Supposedly: inclusive, innovative, global, military, digital security focused. But, is it? Check out the feedback on your own.
They also claim:
Palantir Technologies is a mission-driven company, and a core component of that mission is protecting our fundamental rights to privacy and civil liberties. …
Some argue that society must “balance” freedom and safety, and that in order to better protect ourselves from those who would do us harm, we have to give up some of our liberties. We believe that this is a false choice in many areas. Particularly in the world of data analysis, liberty does not have to be sacrificed to enhance security. Palantir is constantly looking for ways to protect privacy and individual liberty through its technology while enabling the powerful analysis necessary to generate the actionable intelligence that our law enforcement and intelligence agencies need to fulfill their missions.
It’s hard to square this purported commitment to privacy with proof, garnered from documents provided by Edward Snowden, that Palantir has helped expand and accelerate the NSA’s global spy network, which is jointly administered with allied foreign agencies around the world. Notably, the partnership has included building software specifically to facilitate, augment, and accelerate the use of XKEYSCORE, one of the most expansive and potentially intrusive tools in the NSA’s arsenal. According to Snowden documents published by The Guardian in 2013, XKEYSCORE is by the NSA’s own admission its “widest reaching” program, capturing “nearly everything a typical user does on the internet.” A subsequent report by The Intercept showed that XKEYSCORE’s “collected communications not only include emails, chats, and web-browsing traffic, but also pictures, documents, voice calls, webcam photos, web searches, advertising analytics traffic, social media traffic, botnet traffic, logged keystrokes, computer network exploitation targeting, intercepted username and password pairs, file uploads to online services, Skype sessions, and more.” For the NSA and its global partners, XKEYSCORE makes all of this as searchable as a hotel reservation site.
But how do you make so much data comprehensible for human spies? As the additional documents published with this article demonstrate, Palantir sold its services to make one of the most powerful surveillance systems ever devised even more powerful, bringing clarity and slick visuals to an ocean of surveillance data.
PALANTIR’S RELATIONSHIP WITH government spy agencies appears to date back to at least 2008, when representatives from the U.K.’s signals intelligence agency, Government Communications Headquarters, joined their American peers at VisWeek, an annual data visualization and computing conference organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology. Attendees from throughout government and academia gather to network with members of the private sector at the event, where they compete in teams to solve hypothetical data-based puzzles as part of the Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) Challenge. As described in a document saved by GCHQ, Palantir fielded a team in 2008 and tackled one such scenario using its own software. It was a powerful marketing opportunity at a conference filled with potential buyers.
In the demo, Palantir engineers showed how their software could be used to identify Wikipedia users who belonged to a fictional radical religious sect and graph their social relationships. In Palantir’s pitch, its approach to the VAST Challenge involved using software to enable “many analysts working together [to] truly leverage their collective mind.” The fake scenario’s target, a cartoonishly sinister religious sect called “the Paraiso Movement,” was suspected of a terrorist bombing, but the unmentioned and obvious subtext of the experiment was the fact that such techniques could be applied to de-anonymize and track members of any political or ideological group. Among a litany of other conclusions, Palantir determined the group was prone to violence because its “Manifesto’s intellectual influences include ‘Pancho Villa, Che Guevara, Leon Trotsky, [and] Cuban revolutionary Jose Martí,’ a list of military commanders and revolutionaries with a history of violent actions.”
The delegation from GCHQ returned from VisWeek excited and impressed. In a classified report from those who attended, Palantir’s potential for aiding the spy agency was described in breathless terms. “Palantir are a relatively new Silicon Valley startup who are sponsored by the CIA,” the report began. “They claim to have significant involvement with the US intelligence community, although none yet at NSA.” GCHQ noted that Palantir “has been developed closely internally with intelligence community users (unspecified, but likely to be the CIA given the funding).” The report described Palantir’s demo as “so significant” that it warranted its own entry in GCHQ’s classified internal wiki, calling the software “extremely sophisticated and mature. … We were very impressed. You need to see it to believe it.”
The report conceded, however, that “it would take an enormous effort for an in-house developed GCHQ system to get to the same level of sophistication” as Palantir. The GCHQ briefers also expressed hesitation over the price tag, noting that “adoption would have [a] huge monetary … cost,” and over the implications of essentially outsourcing intelligence analysis software to the private sector, thus making the agency “utterly dependent on a commercial product.” Finally, the report added that “it is possible there may be concerns over security — the company have published a lot of information on their website about how their product is used in intelligence analysis, some of which we feel very uncomfortable about.”
A page from Palantir’s “Executive Summary” document, provided to government clients.
However anxious British intelligence was about Palantir’s self-promotion, the worry must not have lasted very long. Within two years, documents show that at least three members of the “Five Eyes” spy alliance between the United States, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and Canada were employing Palantir to help gather and process data from around the world. Palantir excels at making connections between enormous, separate databases, pulling big buckets of information (call records, IP addresses, financial transactions, names, conversations, travel records) into one centralized heap and visualizing them coherently, thus solving one of the persistent problems of modern intelligence gathering: data overload.
A GCHQ wiki page titled “Visualisation,” outlining different ways “to provide insight into some set of data,” puts succinctly Palantir’s intelligence value:
Palantir is an information management platform for analysis developed by Palantir Technologies. It integrates structured and unstructured data, provides search and discovery capabilities, knowledge management, and collaborative features. The goal is to offer the infrastructure, or ‘full stack,’ that intelligence organizations require for analysis.
Bullet-pointed features of note included a “Graph View,” “Timelining capabilities,” and “Geo View.”
Under the Five Eyes arrangement, member countries collect and pool enormous streams of data and metadata collected through tools like XKEYSCORE, amounting to tens of billions of records. The alliance is constantly devising (or attempting) new, experimental methods of prying data out of closed and private sources, including by hacking into computers and networks in non-Five Eyes countries and infecting them with malware.
A 2011 PowerPoint presentation from GCHQ’s Network Defence Intelligence & Security Team (NDIST) — which, as The Intercept has previously reported, “worked to subvert anti-virus and other security software in order to track users and infiltrate networks” — mentioned Palantir as a tool for processing data gathered in the course of its malware-oriented work. Palantir’s software was described as an “analyst workspace [for] pulling together disparate information and displaying it in novel ways,” and was used closely in conjunction with other intelligence software tools, like the NSA’s notorious XKEYSCORE search system. The novel ways of using Palantir for spying seemed open-ended, even imaginative: A 2010 presentation on the joint NSA-GCHQ “Mastering the Internet” (Mastering the Human Race) surveillance program mentioned the prospect of running Palantir software on “Android handsets” as part of a SIGINT-based “augmented reality” experience. It’s unclear what exactly this means or could even look like.
Above all, these documents depict Palantir’s software as a sort of consolidating agent, allowing Five Eyes analysts to make sense of tremendous amounts of data that might have been otherwise unintelligible or highly time-consuming to digest. In a 2011 presentation to the NSA, classified top secret, an NDIST operative noted the “good collection” of personal data among the Five Eyes alliance but lamented the “poor analytics,” and described the attempt to find new tools for SIGINT analysis, in which it “conducted a review of 14 different systems that might work.” The review considered services from Lockheed Martin and Detica (a subsidiary of BAE Systems) but decided on the up-and-comer from Palo Alto.
Palantir is described as having been funded not only by In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital branch, but furthermore created “through [an] iterative collaboration between Palantir computer scientists and analysts from various intelligence agencies over the course of nearly three years.” While it’s long been known that Palantir got on its feet with the intelligence community’s money, it has not been previously reported that the intelligence community actually helped build the software. The continuous praise seen in these documents shows that the collaboration paid off. Under the new “Palantir Model,” “data can come from anywhere” and can be “asked whatever the analyst wants.”
Along with Palantir’s ability to pull in “direct XKS Results,” the presentation boasted that the software was already connected to 10 other secret Five Eyes and GCHQ programs and was highly popular among analysts. It even offered testimonials (TWO FACE appears to be a code name for the implementation of Palantir): (Two Face or JANUS/or the TWINS GEMINI)
[Palantir] is the best tool I have ever worked with. It’s intuitive, i.e. idiot-proof, and can do a lot you never even dreamt of doing.
This morning, using TWO FACE rather than XKS to review the activity of the last 3 days. It reduced the initial analysis time by at least 50%.
Enthusiasm runs throughout the PowerPoint: A slide titled “Unexpected Benefits” reads like a marketing brochure, exclaiming that Palantir “interacts with anything!” including Google Earth, and “You can even use it on a iphone or laptop.” The next slide, on “Potential Downsides,” is really more praise in disguise: Palantir “Looks expensive” but “isn’t as expensive as expected.” The answer to “What can’t it do?” is revealing: “However we ask, Palantir answer,” indicating that the collaboration between spies and startup didn’t end with Palantir’s CIA-funded origins, but that the company was willing to create new features for the intelligence community by request.
The tech giant helps governments and law enforcement decipher vast amounts of data — to mysterious and, some say, dangerous ends.
The company, Palantir Technologies, is named after the seeing stones in J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings.” Its two primary software programs, Gotham and Foundry, gather and process vast quantities of data in order to identify connections, patterns and trends that might elude human analysts. The stated goal of all this “data integration” is to help organizations make better decisions, and many of Palantir’s customers consider its technology to be transformative. Karp claims a loftier ambition, however. “We built our company to support the West,” he says. To that end, Palantir says it does not do business in countries that it considers adversarial to the U.S. and its allies, namely China and Russia. In the company’s early days, Palantir employees, invoking Tolkien, described their mission as “saving the shire.”
LISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE
The brainchild of Karp’s friend and law-school classmate Peter Thiel, Palantir was founded in 2003. It was seeded in part by In-Q-Tel, the C.I.A.’s venture-capital arm, and the C.I.A. remains a client. Palantir’s technology is rumored to have been used to track down Osama bin Laden — a claim that has never been verified but one that has conferred an enduring mystique on the company. These days, Palantir is used for counterterrorism by a number of Western governments. French intelligence turned to Palantir following the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris. Karp claims that Palantir has helped thwart several attacks, including one or two that he says could have had seismic political consequences. “I believe that Western civilization has rested on our somewhat small shoulders a couple of times in the last 15 years,” he told me in Paris, where he was hosting a conference for Palantir’s corporate clients.
A few months later, the world was being menaced by a novel coronavirus, and Palantir quickly joined that battle against Covid-19: By April, according to the company, approximately a dozen countries were using its technology to track and contain the virus. The speed with which Palantir transitioned to pandemic response ostensibly underscores the flexibility of its software, which can be put to any number of tasks. The U.S. Army uses it for logistics, among other things. The investment bank Credit Suisse uses it to guard against money laundering. The pharmaceutical company Merck K.G.a.A., in Germany, uses it to expedite the development of new drugs. Ferrari Scuderia uses it to try to make its Formula 1 cars faster. To Palantirians, as some call themselves, these myriad applications are just further proof that many problems are data-integration problems.
Yet Palantir’s work on the coronavirus has also highlighted the mistrust that trails the company. In Europe, it is viewed with suspicion because of the C.I.A. connection. But the main source of apprehension is simply the nature of Palantir’s work. Although Palantir claims it does not store or sell client data and has incorporated into its software what it insists are robust privacy controls, those who worry about the sanctity of personal information see Palantir as a particularly malignant avatar of the Big Data revolution. Karp himself doesn’t deny the risk. “Every technology is dangerous,” he says, “including ours.” The fact that the health records of millions of people are now being funneled through Palantir’s software has only added to the unease.
That’s especially true in the United States, where the Department of Health and Human Services is using Palantir’s software to analyze virus-related data. Palantir’s work with H.H.S. has become bound up in the biggest controversy that the company has faced, over its relationship with United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Progressive activists and members of Congress have expressed fear that the information collected by H.H.S. could be used by the Trump administration to expand its immigration crackdown, in which Palantir’s technology has played a part. And the fact that Palantir was awarded a pair of no-bid contracts valued at nearly $25 million by H.H.S. has amplified concerns that it has benefited from Thiel’s support of President Trump. Thiel was one of his most prominent backers in 2016, even speaking at the Republican National Convention.
Since even the owners of the company state that they named it from the JR Tolkien Series, I thought we should look briefly at its namesake.

|Specific traits and abilities||Indestructible sphere of dark crystal|
A palantír (/ˈpælənˌtɪər/; pl.palantíri) is a fictional magical artefact from J. R. R. Tolkien‘s Middle-earthlegendarium. A palantír (from Quenyapalan, ‘far; tir, ‘watch over’[T 1]) is described as an indestructible ball of crystal, used for communication and to see events in other parts of Arda, whether past or future.
The palantíri were made by the Elves of Valinorin the First Age, as told in The Silmarillion. By the time of The Lord of the Rings at the end of the Third Age, the few palantíri remaining in existence are used in some climactic scenes by major characters: Sauron, Saruman, Denethor the Steward of Gondor, and two members of the Fellowship of the Ring, Aragorn and Pippin.
A major theme of palantír usage is that while the stones show real objects or events, those using the stones had to “possess great strength of will and of mind” to direct the stone’s gaze to its full capability.[T 2]For others attempting to use the palantír, the stones were often an unreliable guide to action, since to them it was unclear whether events shown were past or future; what was not shown could be more important than what was selectively presented.A risk lay in the fact that users with sufficient power could choose what to show and what to conceal to other stones: in The Lord of the Rings, a palantír falls into the Enemy’s hands making the usefulness of all other existing stones questionable. Commentators such as Paul Kocher note the hand of providence in their usage, while Joseph Pearce compares Sauron’s use of the stones to broadcast wartime propaganda.
A palantír appears in the film director Peter Jackson‘s The Lord of the Rings films. The Tolkien critic Allison Harl compares Jackson to Saruman, and his camera to a palantír, writing that “Jackson chooses to look through the perilous lens, putting his camera to use to exert control over the [original Tolkien] text.” Harl cites Laura Mulvey’s essay “Visual Pleasure and the Narrative Cinema” which describes “scopophilia”, [SCOPOPHILIA: Literally, the love of looking. The term refers to the predominantly male gaze of Hollywood cinema, which enjoys objectifying women into mere objects to be looked at (rather than subjects with their own voice and subjectivity).] the voyeuristic pleasure of looking, based on Sigmund Freud‘s writings on sexuality. Harl gives as an example the sequence in The Two Towers where Jackson’s camera “like the Evil Eye of Sauron” travels towards Saruman’s tower, Isengard and “zooms into the dangerous palantír“, in her opinion giving the cinema viewer “an omniscient and privileged perspective” consisting of a Sauron-like power to observe the whole of Middle-earth. The sequence ends fittingly, in her opinion, with Mordor and the Eye of Sauron, bringing the viewer, like Saruman, to meet the Enemy’s gaze.
The software company Palantir Technologies was named by its founder, Peter Thiel, after Tolkien’s seeing stones.
A telescope at the Lowell Observatory, using a main mirror with spherical curvature, has the acronym PALANTIR. This stands for Precision Array of Large-Aperture New Telescopes for Image Reconstruction, and is meant to reference the “far-seeing stones in [the] Lord of the Rings“.
Naturally, since the mentioned the telescope being also named for the Lord of the Rings Planatir, I had to look into it. I am VERY HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS of our modern Telescopes. Why do they have to be so secretive about them? What are they hiding? Also, telescopes are just tools to bend light. Light is what gives us vision. I rather trust the vision that God gave me, than what Scientism has created.
Posted: February 26, 2018
A new array of three PlaneWave 1.0 meter telescopes is at the heart of a major new Lowell Observatory project, supported by a $3.26 million grant from the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL).
The Model PW-100 instruments will upgrade the Navy Precision Optical Interferometer (NPOI), located at the observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. Leading the project, which will investigate exoplanets, take surface images of stars, and catalog the structure of asteroids, is headed by Dr. Gerard van Belle, a veteran astronomer whose long career has been devoted to exploring the sky. “I’ve been doing this work for 25 years,” Dr. van Belle says, “and I’m engaged in ongoing science and development efforts, by linking these telescopes together.” (I have to tell you, if you believe they can do all that…I got a bridge I would like to show you.)
The new program, called PALANTIR (Precision Array of Large-Aperture New Telescopes for Image Reconstruction), a tribute to the far-sighted stones of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic Lord Of The Rings trilogy, significantly enhances the observatory’s visual reach. “If I want to look at smaller stars,” Dr. van Belle explains, “previously, I couldn’t do it. The new telescopes do more than I could possibly do before.” (It is all an illusion.)
The upgrade will allow the project’s 6 researchers to make new discoveries, and learn more about our universe. “It’s an exciting time,” the astronomer relates, “We’ll be able to look at many new stars, and we’ll have the ability to resolve even more new planets.”
The Navy Research Laboratory (NRL) is joining the Lowell Observatory in its work, which Dr. Van Belle expects will “show us more stars, more accurately,” than the earlier, small (?) 5” telescopes which were previously in use. By linking a group of telescopes together to create a bigger, “synthetic” telescope, the observatory can see detail a single instrument is unable to pick up. This higher resolution, Dr. Van Belle reflects, “are the remedy the new telescopes can give us.” The upgrade, to be carried out over 24 months, is being done in parallel with a five-year advanced techniques development program, which will greatly expand the facility’s utility in performing these investigations.
The Lowell Observatory occupies an important place in the history of modern astronomy, as the brainchild of pioneer Percival Lowell, who founded the site in 1894. The facility has made innumerable contributions to the art and science of astronomy, most recently the addition of the 4.3 meter Discovery Channel Telescope (DCT), (ahh..there you go…the magical world of Disney the wizard of desception and illusion.) whose stunning imagery is available to researchers and students all over the world.
With the advent of the PALANTIR project, Lowell is poised to begin a dynamic new chapter in its ongoing story, revealing more of our wondrous heavens to new generations of scientists. “This really is an important upgrade,” Dr. Van Belle says, “and we will have a much more robust capability to see fainter stars.” PlaneWave Instruments is proud to continue its partnership with the Lowell Observatory and NRL, advancing our growing knowledge of what lies within our galaxy, and beyond. (LOL LOL LOL… More BULLSHIT and DECEPTION from the FALLEN. Got to keep those young minds stayed on “SCIENCE”. )
You must bear in mind, that SCIENTISTS are CONSTANTLY VYING FOR FUNDING! Money, Money, Money is the name of the game. You have heard the old expression “Publish or DIE”…well for the scientific research community, if they are at the forefront, they might as well pack up and go home. They must have the latest discovery, the newest development, the most amazing discovery… OR LOSE. So, when they don’t… guess what they do? THEY MAKE IT UP!
Astronomers have discovered what they believe could be “the first astronomical observing tool“, used by humans 6,000 years ago to observe the stars.
The tomb’s design suggests it may have “enhanced what early human cultures could see in the night sky” and a single aperture, such as a window or doorway, can affect the observation of stars, the team found.
“The orientations of the tombs may be in alignment with Aldebaran, the brightest star in the constellation of Taurus,” said Fabio Silva, who worked on the project. “To accurately time the first appearance of this star in the season, it is vital to be able to detect stars during twilight.”
“We argue that the restricted viewing through the grave passage out of the passage grave allows the viewer to note the appearance of Aldebaran much earlier,” co-author Daniel Brown told WIRED.
“Here the passage acts to preserve dark adaptation of the eye as twilight during sunrise. Therefore a viewer in the grave would note the star with a brighter sky. So the passage grave act as a viewing enhancement beyond a pure pointer.”
“Our work explores how 6,000-year-old passage graves have helped a viewer to spot stars during twilight conditions. You might say this is the oldest instrument to assist a stone age observer.”
Other ancient tombs had similar functions – an ancient Mayan observatory was recently found to have been used to track Venus and Mars. The building was “a multifunctional facility” that tracked Venus and Mars through doors and windows in the structure.
The sighting of particular stars would have been seen as a seasonal marker, and would also have been perceived as spiritually significant.
The discovery was presented at the National Astronomy Meeting in Nottingham.
(so, you see, the perception of LIGHT is what they manipulate with their telescopes. You also see that the OBSERVATION OF THE STARS, which are really beings of light, not planets or pieces of rock, is of SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE…. why? because stars are spirits. They are the gods people worship.)
Scrying (also called crystal gazing, crystal seeing, seeing, or peeping) is the ancient act of divination for the purpose of clairvoyance. (really it is about contacting demonic spirits.) It is usually achieved by concentrating on or staring at an object having a shiny surface until a vision appears. (Like star gazing, or in modern times staring at a black screen which is made of crystal.)
Derived from the Old English descry (‘to reveal’)
Scrying has been used for thousands of years by different cultures. Ancient Egypt used scrying in their Initiations. This included water scrying, dream scrying, oil scrying, and mirror scrying. (and what are telescopes made of?? MIRRORS) One legend states that the goddess Hathor carried a shield that could reflect back all things in their true light (ya, I doubt that). From this shield she allegedly fashioned the first magic mirror to “see.”
In ancient Persia, the Shahnama, a semi-historical epic work written in the late 10th century, gives a description of what was called the Cup of Jamshid, used in pre-Islamic Persia, which was used by wizards and practitioners of the esoteric (dark) sciences for observing all the seven layers of the universe.
Ancient Greeks and Celts practiced scrying using beryl, crystal, black glass, polished quartz, water, and other transparent or light catching bodies. Nostradamus is believed to have employed a small bowl of water as a scrying tool into which he gazed and received images of future events. Alchemists Edward Kelley and John Dee employed a form of scrying using a small crystal ball or shewstone – a piece of polished obsidion (Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic (black) glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. Obsidian is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth.). The crystal ball and wax tablets used by Dee and Kelley are on display at the British Museum in London.
In the late 1820s, Joseph Smith, Jr. founded the Latter Day Saint movement based in part on what was said to be the miraculous information obtained from the reflections of “seer stones”.
Smith had at least three separate stones, including his favorite, a brown stone he found during excavation of a neighbour’s well. He initially used these stones in various treasure digging quests in the early 1820s, placing the stone in the bottom of his hat and putting his face in the hat to read what he believed were the miraculous reflections from the stone. Later, when Smith’s thoughts turned to religion and prophecy, Smith used the brown stone while dictating the text of the Book of Mormon, stating that he could see the text of that book within the stone at the bottom of his hat. Smith also said he had access to a separate set of spectacles composed of seer stones, which he called the Urim and Thummim. Source: https://occult-world.com/scrying-2/
scrying A method of Divination done by gazing on an object that has a polished and reflective surface, such as a CRYSTAL BALL or a MIRROR, until visions appear on its surface. Scrying comes from the English term descry, which means “to succeed in discerning” or “to make out dimly.” The TOOL of scryers, called a speculum, can be any object that works for an individual but usually is one with a polished or reasonably reflective surface. The oldest and most common speculum is still water in a lake, a pond, or a dark bowl. Ink, blood, and other dark liquids were used by ancient Egyptian scryers. NOSTRADAMUS scryed with a bowl of water set upon a brass tripod. His prepartory Ritual consisted of dipping a WAND into the water and anointing himself with a few drops; then he gazed into the bowl until he saw visions. Other common tools are glass fishing floats, polished metals and stones, precious gems, eggs, and mirrors. GYPSY fortune-tellers made crystal balls the stereotype of the trade. JOHN DEE, the royal magician to Queen Elizabeth I, used a crystal egg and a black obsidian mirror. In Arab countries, scryers have used their own polished thumbnails. Dr. Morton Prince, a medical psychologist of the 19th century, used electric lightbulbs in scrying experiments with his patients. Wiccans use rounded mirrors, the convex side of which is painted black, or small cauldrons that are painted black on the inside and filled with water. Scryers have their own individual techniques for inducing visions. Some who use crystals focus on points of light on the surface. Others enter a state of altered consciousness and allow images to float into their inner awareness. Some scryers may actually see images appear on the surface of the speculum, while others see them in their mind’s eye. Some images are couched in Symbols, and the scryer must learn how to interpret them. In the Middle Ages, there was a belief that the images formed on a crystal ball or other tool were caused by demons that had been trapped inside by Magic. A formal scrying ritual is given in Crystal Gazing and Clairvoyance, a book written by John Melville in 1896. Melville specifies the use of a crystal ball resting on an ivory or ebony stand that has been inlaid with magical words in raised gold letters. All of the tools must be consecrated by ritual. To begin, the scryer should recite a long and Christian Invocation. According to Melville, any scrying done with evil intent would rebound on the scryer “with terrible effect.”

Our name stands for the values of interconnectedness, freedom, and openness that shape the work that we do.
One of the questions we often get asked fairly frequently here at Palantir is the origin and meaning behind our somewhat unusual name.
In popular mythology, the word “palantir” is used to describe a two-way communications device that’s part of an interconnected and decentralized network, much like a single computer on the World Wide Web. The word has its roots in a medieval Latin term that means “openly”, which again, is an appropriate metaphor for the free and open technologies that form both the backbone of the Web and the foundation for the software solutions that we’ve been building since July of 1996.
These values of interconnectedness, freedom, and openness are what drive all of the work we do, from custom software solutions that often involve integration with third party systems to our collaborations with world-class designers on award-winning websites. This “Palantir philosophy” shapes and informs the kinds of projects that we choose to work on and the kinds of clients that we work with, as well as the technology tools that we use. (Wait now, free an open, that implies that it is available to ANYONE, and so is the data. Right?)
All too often, technology solutions are locked inside a black box, and software vendors use proprietary knowledge to keep customers tied to their products. Our belief is that clients and partners should keep coming back because they want to keep working with us, not because they have to. We believe sharing knowledge and information empowers everyone and ultimately leads to better results, which is why we work exclusively within an open source ecosystem, (now that sounds like an oxymoron. EXLUSIVELY OPEN?) and have always given our clients full access to the source code of the projects we build for them.
There are all kinds of successful business models out there that work for different kinds of companies, but the Palantir philosophy is the one that has worked best for us for the past 13 years, and we see no reason to mess with success!

Those who have read The Lord of the Rings will know about the palantiri, the seeing stones which we look into at our peril. Anyone who looks into one of these stones does not see a complete lie. On the contrary, what he sees might be true. The problem is not that he is seeing a lie but that he is only seeing that part of the truth that the dominant will that controls the stones wants him to see. Thus Denethor, the Steward of Minas Tirith, develops the habit of looking into one of these stones and is shown repeatedly the sheer might of the enemy which is marching on his city and country. Faced with such seemingly insurmountable odds, he despairs of any chance of withstanding the onslaught of evil and commits suicide.
The problem is that it is Sauron’s will that controls the stones. Sauron, a demon whom Tolkien describes as the greatest of Satan’s servants, shows Denethor what he wants Denethor to see. Denethor, not exhibiting the cardinal virtues of prudence and temperance, does not have the sense to refrain from peering into the stones and is thereby seduced into believing that the triumph of evil is inevitable.
Perhaps, on one level, and most obviously, the palantiri can be likened to the crystal balls of the spiritualists which purport to see into the spiritual realm. It was the experience of this sort of palantir stone which prompted or provoked G. K. Chesterton to write “The Crystal”, one of his finest poems, after his wife had succumbed to the lure of spiritualism following the suicide of her brother:
|I saw it; low she lay as one in dreams,
And round that holy hair, round and beyond
My Frances, my inviolable, screamed
The scandal of the dead men’s demi-monde.
Close to that face, a window into heaven,
Close to the hair’s brown surf of broken waves
I saw the idiot faces of the ghosts
That are the fungus, not the flower, of graves.
You whom the pinewoods robed in sun and shade
You who were sceptred with thistle’s bloom,
God’s thunder! What have you to do with these
The lying crystal and the darkened room.
|Leave the weird queens that find the sun too strong,
To mope and cower beneath Druidic trees,
The still, sweet gardens of the dastard’s dream.
God’s thunder! What have you to do with these?
Low fields and shining lie in crystal-land
Peace and strange pleasure: wonder-lands untrod,
But not plain words, nor love of open things,
Truth, nor strong laughter, nor the fear of God.
I will not look: I am a child of earth,
I see the sun and wood, the sea, and grass.
I only saw one spirit. She is there Staring for spirits in a lump of glass.
Chesterton encapsulates the dangers of the crystal balls of the spiritualists with his customary clarity and brilliance but he does not encapsulate the fullness of what Tolkien means by the palantiri. The full meaning is revealed by Tolkien when he tells us, in the words of Gandalf to Pippin, that the word palantir literally means “that which looks far away.” More specifically, “palantir” has its etymological roots in the elvish language of Quenya and consists of two elements: palan which means “far and wide”, and tir which means “watch.” This being so, palantir is often translated as simply “far-seer.” Here we see Tolkien linguistically at his most playful because “far-see” in German is Fernsehen, the German word for television, and indeed the word television itself also means “far-see” or “far-seer.” Tele is Greek for “far” and video is Latin for “see.”
Television was very much an ascendant technology at the time that Tolkien was writing The Lord of the Rings and he was clearly unsettled by the power that this new magic possessed to spread propaganda. In 1944, in the midst of the writing of his epic, Tolkien had written a letter to his son in which he lamented the lies being disseminated by the BBC and the Ministry of Information, the latter of which would inspire Orwell’s Ministry of Truth, the propaganda ministry in Nineteen Eighty-Four. Today, more than seventy years after Tolkien had satirized the dark magic of television, through the power of the palantiri, there is a deeply ironic and wistfully whimsical lesson to be learned from Denethor’s experience as a TV-addict. Put bluntly and abruptly, if we watch too much television, with its daily dose of the Dark Lord’s propaganda, we will be driven to suicide!
Putting such whimsy to one side, we must realize in all sobriety that having a television in our home is akin to possessing a palantir stone. This should be a scary thought because the danger inherent in the possession of such a “far-seer” is that we are in danger of being possessed by our possession of it. It saps our will and it encourages anger, which is always ultimately self-destructive. In truth, and this is not the time for mincing our words, possessing a television is like inviting the devil into the room, enabling him to spew forth his propaganda, defacing the fullness of truth with his half-truths and defiling the goodness of our home with the filth of his seductive lies. Why do we tolerate such a guest? Why do we want him there? Why don’t we do the only good and honest thing? Why don’t we exercise the freedom of our will by exorcising the demon from our home? We only need to pull the plug and place the TV in the dumpster. If we are unable to do so, or do not want to do so, dare we admit that it’s because we are too attached to it, that it has become too “precious” for us to part with? Do we possess our television, or does it possess us?
Where did zodiac signs come from?
So, though astrology — looking for answers, signs and predictions in the movements of the celestial bodies —isn’t itself a science, there’s a long history of humans looking up at the stars to plan their lives. Farmers used the skies as a calendar as long ago as Ancient Egyptians, when the rising of Sirius, the Dog Star, around mid-July, was seen as a marker of the imminent annual flooding of the Nile. Travelers used the skies as a compass, following the stars to know where to go. And many people used the skies as a source of mystical direction, too.
But who first looked up at the sky to make sense of what was happening down on the ground and why their fellow humans were behaving in certain ways? Exactly who came up with this way of thinking and when is unclear,but historians and astronomers do know a bit about how it got so popular today.
The stars are just one of the many things in the natural world that human beings have turned to for answers over the years.
“We don’t really know who first came up with the idea for looking at things in natureand divining influences on humans,” (well, we certainly do, this was one of the “crafts” taught to humans by fallen angels, that is why it is called “divining” because it came from the angels who the people worshiped as gods…divine beings.)says astronomer Sten Odenwald, the director of Citizen Science at the NASA Space Science Education Consortium. (For sure he is not going to tell you the truth. NASA hates GOD.)“There’s some indication that cave art shows this idea that animals and things can be imbued with some kind of spirit form that then has an influence on you, and if you appease that spirit form, then you will have a successful hunt. (THERE YOU GO…demon worship) That was taken over by the idea of divination, (Again, communing with spirits/divine or fallen angels) where you can actually look at things in nature and study them carefully, such as tea-leaf reading.” (Divination is forbidden by God because it is about getting your info from demons.)
Some form of astrology shows up in various belief systems in ancient (pagan)cultures.
In Ancient China, noblemen looked at eclipses or sunspots as portents of good or bad times for their emperor, though it’s thought that those signs had less application to the lives of other individuals. (Odenwald points out that in societies where people in the lower classes had less control over their lives, divination could seem pointless.) The Sumarians and Babylonians, by around the middle of the second millennium BC, appeared to have had many divination practices — they looked at spots on the liver and the entrails of animals, for example — and their idea that watching planets and stars was a way to keep track of where gods were in the sky can be traced to The Venus tablet of Ammisaduqa. This tablet, which is dated to the first millennium BC and tracks the motion of Venus, is one of the earliest pieces of what’s been called Babylonian planetary omens. The ancient Egyptians contributed the idea that patterns of stars made up constellations, through which the sun appears to “move” at a specific times during the year.
It’s thought that all of these ideas came together when Alexander the Great conquered Egypt around 330 BC.
“There must have been a lot of exchange that got the Greeks on-board with the idea of divination using planets,” says Odenwald, and because they were deep into mathematics and logic, they worked out a lot of the rules for how this could work.”
Here’s how NASA has described how that logic led to the creation of the familiar zodiac signs known today: (LISTEN TO THIS BULLSHIT!)
What are the 12 signs of the zodiac?
It was during this Ancient Greek period that the 12 star signs of the zodiac with which many people are likely familiar today — Aries (roughly March 21-April 19), Taurus (April 20-May 20), Gemini (May 21-June 20), Cancer (June 21-July 22), Leo (July 23-Aug. 22), Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22), Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22), Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21), Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21), Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19), Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) and Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — were set down. These Western, or tropical, zodiac signs were named after constellations and matched with dates based on the apparent relationship between their placement in the sky and the sun.
The Babylonians had already divided the zodiac into 12 equal signs by 1500 BC — boasting similar constellation names to the ones familiar today, such as The Great Twins, The Lion, The Scales — and these were later incorporated into Greek divination. The astronomer Ptolemy, author of theTetrabiblos,which became a core book in the history of Western astrology, helped popularize these 12 signs.
What’s the difference between astrology and astronomy?
For centuries, astrology (looking for signs based on the movement of the celestial bodies) was considered basically the same thing as astronomy (the scientific study of those objects). For example, revolutionary 17th-century astronomer Johannes Kepler, who studied the motion of the planets,was at the time considered an astrologer. That changed around the beginning of the Enlightenmentin the late 17th century. (so all those people, throughout history for thousands of years stupid, and it is only in the last few hundred years that we have become so smart?)
Once Sir Isaac Newton basically turned the sky into a calculator, mathematizing the motion of the planets and realizing that gravity controlled everything, Odenwald says, “that started a whole new scientific approach to looking at the sky and the motion of planets and the earth.”
That’s the point at which astronomy came to be known as a science and astrology was acknowledged as not a science.But its popularity relies on factors that numbers can’t compute, and the appeal of looking to the stars for answers has not waned — in fact, in recent years, it seems to have expanded. After all, a 2014 National Science Foundation poll found more than half of millennials think astrology is a science.
And Odenwald argues that, even if astrology’s answers aren’t based on scientific study,the reason people keep turning to the sky does come down to something very real — a psychological phenomenon he calls the human tendency for “self-selection,” the search for interpretations that match what we already hope to be true. (In other words, people believe what they want to believe.)
“People magnify the positives, they forget the negatives,” he says, “and that’s just how we’re designed.”
PREPARING THE WAY OF THE ANTICHRIST
. . .and the False Prophet and 10 kings downsized to 7 and. . .
THE DIVINE TWINS
“Along the ecliptic is seen a picture of two youthful figures seated side by side and at rest… Their names in Latin were Castor and Pollux.In Greek mythology they were called Apollo and Hercules... In Grecian mythology, Apollo and Hercules, the twin sons of Jupiter were great heroes and had accomplished great exploits… Here we have a picture of the dual nature and mission of Christ (NOT!)... They deal with the divine and human nature… The old Coptic name of this sign Pi Mahi, signifies ‘The United,’ as united in fellowship or ‘brotherhood.'”– D. James Kennedy (872:101-2) (SHAME ON DR. KENNEDY!)
Gemini, the Twins, takes its name from the legend of Castor and Pollux, but it is also mythographically appropriate following Taurus and anticipating the transition of the twin-gods, oak king and holly king.” –The Celtic Druids’ Year (270:170)
THE SACRED MARRIAGE
In dualistic belief systems,twin deities or Dioscouri are archetypes representing the contradictory aspects of creation:light and darkness.The Gemini twins were regarded as homosexual deities who “served as “guiding lights for those hoping to break out of the mortal sphere into the heavenly realm of the gods.”In the same-sex culture,homosexuality and lesbianismare stages in the evolutionary process toward androgyny.
“Remember, the serpent is still alive in the Garden of Eden. Only the heterosexual couple was expelled.” – Edward Carpenter.
“In Vedic mythology, the twin cosmic Ashwins (or Asvins), are often depicted as twilight, one half light, the other half dark,personifying the two luminous rays which precede the break of day, or, otherwise, the dawn of a new frame of mind.As Romulus and Remus, they founded Rome, the center of the empire of the gods. They were known in Greece as CASTOR AND POLLUX, who live today as the constellation of Gemini,eternal gaiety found in the nighttime skies. They were later called the DIOSCOURI, who, like QUETZECOATL, were also associated with the stars,guiding lights for those hoping to break out of the mortal sphere into the heavenly realm of the gods. Appropriately enough, the DIOSCOURI literally embodied energy. Indeed, St. Elmo’s fire – the electrical discharge from the ship’s mast seen during a thunderstorm– was believed to be a visibly discernible manifestation of the energy of these gay Twin gods.” (1008)
The exoteric version of Gemini is two young males united in the bond of brotherhood (unity);their diversity is manifest in their natures: one twin is mortal (Castor) and the other immortal (Pollux):
“…the Divine Twins [are] the constellation Gemini…
“Twins symbolize that which is simultaneously identical and nonidentical.They represent duality, separation and contradiction, but also similarity, duplication and repetition. Divine twins represent the potential energy of opposition and the great creative force unleashed by their unification. For example, Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus (N.B., raised by a she-wolf), in which it was necessary that they fight and one die. The twins represent the opposites:light/dark,extroversion/introversion, objectivity/subjectivity,action/thought, action/passion, aggression/pacifism.” (1000)
“In Sun we have a girl and a boy, one mortal the other immortal,who represent the body opposed to the soul, the flesh opposed to the spirit…Creation requires that the brother and sister unite, but this must be a Hieros Gamos (Sacred Marriage)between purified partners: the mortal priestess and the immortal god,or the mortal priestand the immortal goddess.Nichols observes that incest symbolizes one’s relation to oneself,therefore the Sacred Marriage– the embrace within the waters of the unconscious – unifies the opposites within the individual; it is the alchemical operation that ‘fixes the volatile and volatilizes the fixed,’immortalizes the mortal and mortalizes the immortal,for only alchemy can unite the contradictories without the opposites annihilating each other.” (1000)
Which explains why one Gemini twin points to the sky and the other to the earth: “In addition, the boy’s right hand is turned skyward in the classical attitude of celestial invocation, whereas the girl’s left hand is turned downward in chthonic invocation.Thus the children unite the forces of Heaven and the Abyss, the astral spirits and the elemental spirits.” (1000) According to Webster’s dictionary, “chthonic” is a Greek word meaning “in or under the earth… Designating, or relating to gods or spirits of the underworld, esp. gods of the Greeks.”
In the ancient mystery religions, the sacred prostitute served in the temple as a medium between the gods and men. According to The Sacred Prostitute: Eternal Aspect of the Feminine, the union between sacred prostitute, embodiment of the goddess, and king, believed to be a god, reconciled the Microcosm with the Macrocosm.
Macrocosm and microcosm From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
By looking up, I see down. Macrocosm and microcosm refers to a vision (or theory) of cosmos where the part (microcosm) reflects the whole (macrocosm) and vice versa. It is a form of recursion which is a feature present in many esoteric models of philosophy, both ancient and modern. It is closely associated with Hermeticism and underlies practices such as astrology, alchemy and sacred geometry with its premise of “As above, so below“.
The philosophy was conceptualized by Pythagoras, who saw the cosmos and the body as a harmonious unity. The idea was re-articulated about a century later by Plato, and again during the Renaissance, by Leonardo da Vinci, who noted common features between the natural world and the human body such as the circulation of liquids and basic branching mechanisms.
In modern sociology, the concept of microcosm has been predominantly used to describe a small group of individuals whose behavior is typical of a larger social body encompassing it. A microcosm can be seen as a special kind of epitome. Conversely, a macrocosm is a social body made of smaller compounds. In physics, scale invariance describes the same phenomenon.
The macrocosm-microcosm principal is also a key element to systems theory. An example is how the DNA of a living creature is contained in every cell, and which in turn can be used to determine the genetic make-up of the whole creature. The concept has also been used specifically in cybernetics. Reji M. Issac of BPC College Piravom claims that through cybernetics it is possible to “generate a key point of microcosm symbol which can reach up to macrocosm world and can explain about its control” and so realise Herbert Brun‘s definition of cybernetics as “a science to cure all temporary truth about eternal triteness“.
“The ‘heiros gamos,‘ the sacred prostitute was the votary chosen to embody the goddess. She was the goddess’ fertile womb, her passion and her erotic nature.In the union with the god, embodied by the reigning monarch, she assured the fertility and well-being of the land and the people… often she remained veiled and anonymous;her raison d’être was to worship the goddess in lovemaking, thereby bringing the goddess love into the human sphere.In this union — the union of masculine and feminine, spiritual and physical –– the personal was transcended and the divine entered in.As the embodiment of the goddess in the mystical union of the sacred marriage, the sacred prostitute...was the holy vessel wherein chthonic and spiritual forces united.”(736:39-40)
The Theosophical Glossary defines Chthonia as “Chaotic earth”.In Hellenic cosmogony, the Underworld, symbolized by the Moon goddess,is subdued and controlled by the Sun-god: “In the sequence of tarot trumps,the Sun triumphs over the Moon,for it is Sol Invictus (the Invincible Sun), the power of transcendent consciousnessto tame the beasts of the Abyss, the potent and wild forces... Thus Apollo defeated the Python, and brought its powerful chthonic forces under control,but without destroying them, for the Pythia continued to fulfill her function.” (1000)
As ancient oracles were consulted by sages and emperors about strategic matters,Tarot cards are used today for guidance by professional and amateur psychics.Carl Jung, who researched classical oracles, coined the term “archetypes” to describe internal energy sources available to man from the ‘Universal Soul’.Each of the 78 cards of a Tarot deck represents an archetype of one the 78 energies of the ‘collective unconscious’ which is alleged to be present within every human being. The most widely used tarot deck was developed by A. E. Waite (1857-1942), a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and a prolific writer on occultism and magic.The Lovers card in the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck represents the Gemini Twins in the sense of a ‘sacred marriage’ between brother and sister. Some esotericists, however, deny that this involves sexual contact:
“Astrologically,The Lovers is principally related to Venus, the goddess of air, and Gemini which, in esoteric astrology, she rules.Importantly, Gemini is also the first sign of relationship in the zodiac;the relationship between siblings…
“The Lovers follows a series of five very important, very powerful cards,three of which are masculine and two feminine. When it appears in a reading therefore, The Lovers can signal some sort of synthesis between the different aspects of male and femalethat each of the previous cards represents.It signifies a sense of challenge, newness, opposition and heightened awareness;and an integration between the powerful forces that have been unleashed and experienced (sometimes unconsciously) to this point…
“The sense of duality inherent in The Lovers is strengthened through its association with Gemini, the sign of The Twins…. According to the myth of Castor and Pollux, the story behind the constellation of Gemini,when the mortal Castor died, his immortal twin brother Pollux begged his father to let him join Castor in the Underworld.His father Zeus agreed, on the proviso that they spent half their time in the Underworld and half in the heavens.
“…Gemini draws our attention to the importance of sibling relationships, and to their powerful impact on the patterning of all our relationships with friends and lovers. The two lovers in the Waite-Smith deck represent…an arrangement of the brother-sister pair; one aspect of which is the ‘sacred marriage’,the marriage between brother and sister.The ‘sacred marriage’ of The Lovers really represents a relationship of equality between two individuals,a type of relationship that is largely absent from the Major Arcana.” (851)
The Gates of the Sun are twin gates or pillars which stand in the Milky Way and connect the earth with the heavens. Cancer and Capricorn, the solstices, were once the Gates of the Sun and, as such, they represented opposites. However, now the Gates of the Sun are Gemini and Sagittarius which are the equinoxes, thereby representing equality and equilibrium as opposed than diversity and disharmony, typified by the solstices, Cancer and Capricorn. This progression from Cancer/Capricorn to Gemini/Sagittarius signifies that whatever used to be opposites are now equals. In other words, discarnate souls which once incarnated into bodies in the sign of Cancer as opposites (division of sexes) now enter into incarnation in Gemini as androgynes.
The Twin Pillars of Jachin and Boaz are symbols of the Gates of the Sun which connect the earth to the heavens. A Masonic book published in 1855 titled The Historical Landmarks and Other Evidences of Freemasonry provides evidence that the Gates of the Sun are presently at the equinoxes:
“‘The [Masonic] lodge is a representation of King Solomon’s Temple and the Temple was calculated to symbolize the maternal human body, wherein the candidate must enter to be born again. …a Masonic book, The Historical Landmarks and Other Evidences of Freemasonry, declares… ‘The two pillars…represent two imaginary columns, supposed to be placed at the equinoces (sic) to support the heavens… The one on the left is called Boaz, and indicates Osiris, or the sun, the one on the right is called Jachin, and designates Isis, the symbol both of the earth and its productions, and of the moon.'” (39:338-9)
It is due to the precession of the equinoxes that the Gates of the Gods, which were Cancer and Capricorn in the Age of Aries, became Gemini and Sagittarius in our present Age of Pisces. Albert Pike stated in Morals and Dogma that it is through these gates that souls ascend from earth to heaven.
“The Galaxy, Macrobius says, crosses the Zodiac in two opposite points, Cancer and Capricorn, the tropical points in the sun’s course, ordinarily called the Gates of the Sun. These two tropics, before his time [Aries], corresponded with those constellations, but in his day [Pisces] with Gemini and Sagittarius, in consequence of the precession of the equinoxes; but the signs of the Zodiac remained unchanged; and the Milky Way crossed at the signs Cancer and Capricorn, though not at those constellations.
“Through these gates souls were supposed to descend to earth and re-ascend to Heaven. One, Macrobius says, in his dream of Scipio, was styled the Gate of Men; and the other, the Gate of the Gods. Cancer was the former, because souls descended by it to the earth; and Capricorn the latter, because by it they re-ascended to their seats of immortality, and became Gods.” (155:437-8)
The cover of William Cooper’s book, Behold a Pale Horse, displays a Zodiac Wheel above which there are two riders on horses. One rider is the fourth horseman of the Apocalypse who, personifying death, rides the pale horse of Revelation 6:8: “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”
The other rider ascends towards the sun on a winged horse.“…and Hell followed with him…” The flying horse is in all probability Pegasus, a mythological horse who flew from earth to heaven bearing the thunderbolt of Zeus. Pegasus was produced by the blood of the head of Medusa, the Gorgon, who was slain by Perseus, who was said to have conquered death. Medusa’s ancient symbol was a ceremonial mask that was used by sacred prostitutes to summon the Goddess energy in the sacred marriage rite. Note the masked rider on the pale horse. “The Gemini represent creative Nature (Natura naturans) and created Nature (Natura naturata), and this duality is sometimes illustrated in tales by a being that wears a mask” (48:116)
The cover of Cooper’s book illustrates the esoteric duality of the Gemini Twins, represented as Pegasus, the winged-horse, and the Pale Horse (death). In classical mythology and Romantic literature, Pegasus symbolized man’s ascent to the divine. As Pegasus unfolded the splendor of his wings and soared towards heaven, Gnostics aspire to transcend the material world (through the Gate of the Sun) to the ethereal realm of the Macrocosm. Preceding that ascent, a process of death occurs as the Microcosm is gradually dissolved.
A final observation: On the Wheel of the Zodiac, the horses are positioned at 11:00 which in the Druidic Zodiac Wheel is Aquarius.
“…Pierre Plantard…[was] deceased on…February 3, 2000…at eleven hours ten minutes.” (375)
In the following article, you will read some very important revelations. You will discover that at the time of TIBERIUS reign Astrology was still not very well accepted to respected. Tiberius had a lot to do with changing that. You will see why it was so important for him to establish himself as the heir to the line of the GODS. You will learn why it was so important that he and his brother be accepted as the reincarnation of the the gods Castor and Pollux, the Divine Twins, The Twin Towers, The Stars, The Androgynously Ones, One Immortal and One Mortal.
Astrology is not a science or an art. It is a farce. Created by the fallen ones and their progeny. Divination is merely communication with demon spirits.
Apollo and Heracles struggle for the Delphic tripod.
Heracles is depicted as a bearded man wearing a lion-skin cloak, and Apollo as a youth with bow in hand. Heracles is supported by Athena who wears a helm and snake-trimmed aigis cloak set with the Gorgon’s head. She holds a shield and spear, and wears a high-crested helm. Artemis or the Pythia of Delphi stands behind Apollo holding a plant frond.
THE TWINS ARE REALLY APOLLO AND HERCULES!
APOLLO IS THE ANTICHRIST WHO IS ABOUT TO BE MADE KNOWN ON THE EARTH! Apollo is the son of ZEUS and Jupiter is the Roman version of the Greek God ZEUS. JUPITER and SATURN are about to come together in the heavens before the end of this year. They will not be this close again until 2080.
One of the ways to understand transiting Saturn in the houses is to use the myth of The Twelve Labors of Herculesas an allegory for his journey. The labors of Hercules are the challenges confronting us during the Saturn transit. Each of his labors describe the experience we must face at that time but also the gift of knowledge acquired represented by the natal house.
Equating the 12 labors with the 12 signs of the zodiac goes back centuries. The first mention of this correlation was by Hesiod circa 700 BC and again by Pausanius in the 5th century BC. Eventually the Twelve Labors of Hercules were written down in full by Appolororus (180-120 BC).SOURCE
Always remember, these are pagan beliefs. Not to be accepted or condoned by the Children of GOD. However, the elite live by this stuff. So it pays to be aware of what is going on, so that you are not caught unaware. You should expect some MAJOR events to happen before the end of this year.
Jupiter and Saturn are getting closer, as they near their once-in-20-years conjunction on December 21, 2020. At their closest, they’ll be only 0.1 degrees apart. That’s just 1/5 of a full moon diameter. Start watching them now, and you’ll see them draw close together.
Astronomers use the word conjunction to describe meetings of planets and other objects on our sky’s dome. They use the term great conjunction to describe meetings of the two biggest
worldsin our solar system, mighty Jupiter and the glorious ringed planet Saturn. The next great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be December 21, 2020. That date is, coincidentally, the date of the December solstice. It’ll be the first Jupiter-Saturn conjunction since the year 2000, and the closest Jupiter-Saturn conjunction since 1623, only 14 years after Galileo made his first telescope. At their closest, Jupiter and Saturn will be only 0.1 degree apart. That’s just 1/5 of a full moon diameter.
This extra-close Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in 2020 won’t be matched again until the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction of March 15, 2080.
But don’t wait until December to start watching these worlds. They’re visible tonight and every night – near each other for the rest of 2020 – an appealing and mind-expanding sight!
See photos: Jupiter and Saturn draw closer!
At the 2000 great conjunction, 20 years ago, Jupiter and Saturn were near the sun in our sky and difficult to observe. We’re due for a more observable great conjunction, and we’ll get one. In November, Jupiter and Saturn are noticeable for their nearness to each other, and they are in the sky when darkness falls.
By December, Jupiter and Saturn will still be easily visible. They’ll be, if anything, even more beautiful than now, in the western twilight shortly after sunset.
You’ll recognize Jupiter and Saturn easily, from now through the end of the year. Jupiter is brighter than any star. Saturn is not as bright as Jupiter, but it’s as bright as the brightest stars and shines with a distinctly golden color. Also, Jupiter is near Saturn! Saturn is just to the east of Jupiter on the sky’s dome. Unlike the twinkling stars, Jupiter and Saturn both shine steadily.
This month – during the period when the moon swept past Jupiter and Saturn (about November 16 to November 21) – the two gas giant planets are some 3 degrees apart.
Over the coming month – from November 21 to the day of the conjunction itself, December 21 – Jupiter will travel about 6 degrees and Saturn 3 degrees on the sky’s dome. That movement will mean that Jupiter bridges the 3-degree gap between itself and Saturn.
Bingo! Great conjunction!
Saturn, the sixth planet outward from the sun, is the farthest and slowest-moving planet that we can easily see with the eye alone. Dazzling Jupiter, the fifth planet outward from the sun, is the second-slowest bright planet, after Saturn.
For that reason, Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions are the rarest of bright-planet conjunctions, by virtue of their slow motions in front of the constellations of the zodiac. Saturn takes nearly 30 years to go around the sun full circle whereas Jupiter takes nearly 12 years.
Thus, every 20 years, Jupiter catches up to Saturn as viewed from Earth.
From the years 2000 to 2100 inclusive, as viewed from our planet Earth, these Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions (in ecliptic longitude) happen on these dates:
May 28, 2000
December 21, 2020
October 31, 2040
April 7, 2060
March 15, 2080
September 18, 2100
Now, here’s why these great Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions happen every 20 years. Each year, Saturn completes about 12 degrees of its orbit around the sun, whereas Jupiter completes about 30 degrees. Therefore, in one year, Jupiter closes the gap between itself and Saturn by about 18 degrees (30 – 12 = 18 degrees).
In a period of 20 years, then, Jupiter gains 360 degrees on Saturn (18 x 20 = 360 degrees), therefore lapping the ringed planet once every 20 years.
So start watching Jupiter and Saturn now! And mark your calendar for the great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on December 21, 2020.
Bottom line: The coming great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be December 21, 2020, the day of the December solstice. These two worlds will be closer in our sky than they’ve been since 1623. At their closest, Jupiter and Saturn will be only 0.1 degree apart. That’s just 1/5 of a full moon diameter. Charts and more info here.
