Who Are You?

How do you recognise discrimination?

More recent events in my life have caused me to re-think why I find myself in my current predicament. What am I doing with my life? Who am I? Stuck on a perpetual roller-coaster, I spin around, get flipped upside down, and pulled back up again through a daily slog of trying to find a meaningful existence.

It appears that the system is definitely against me.

As I complete endless job applications with my qualifications, who I’ve worked for, my age, marital status and number of children, I am confronted by a page of simply outrageous enquiries.
Sometimes it’s sixteen pages, sometimes it’s only thirteen. Before I sign and send my latest thesis length application, even for a minimum-wage-part-time job, I must answer some excessively probing questions.
These are designed to avoid discrimination, according to the U.K. government. Strangely, they seem to highlight the very things that once were supposed to be left out for fear of… discrimination.

Rock n Rolling in it

Diamond meteorite 2010
Scientists put forward their idea on how to stop future asteroids from destroying the planet.

'Diamonds Are Forever': When Bond investigates mysterious activities in the world diamond market, he discovers that the evil Ernst Blofeld is stockpiling the precious gems to use in a deadly laser satellite capable of destroying massive targets on land, sea and air. Bond, with the help of beautiful smuggler Tiffany Case, sets out to stop the madman, but first he must grapple with a host of enemies.

Armed robberies these days seem to mirror, or even presage, their mythical Hollywood effigies. Stealing with style seems to be the in-thing. Forget being a handy cracker with a stethoscope and immovable cast iron safe.

If you know how to open a Swiss Fokker 100 Airliner cargo hatch door, in just a few seconds, you could be rolling in it. This is what the Belgium police discovered earlier this week, when a highly-trained professional gang took just three minutes to hold up a Swiss passenger jet, before escaping into the night with $50 million worth of diamonds.

“Belgian police were baffled by a robbery that took place with precision, military timing and apparent insider knowledge, allowing the gang to aim for the delivery of a diamond consignment within a 15-minute time window. Wearing masks, hooded police anoraks and armed with machine guns equipped with laser sights, the robbers struck just before the aircraft was cleared for take-off."

They broke through Brussels’ airport perimeter fence, using a Mercedes and an Audi, around 20 minutes before the Helvetic Airways plane, bound for Zurich, was due to take off. They made a high-speed exit out the same hole they came in through, disappearing into the night. Because many of the diamonds were uncut, the chance of recovering them is slim.

You have to admire the audacity of these guys, pulling off a heist of this magnitude in a time-slot shorter than a cigarette break. Of course, stealing is wrong, but then, who isn’t stealing something somewhere everyday… the corporations, the elite bankers, the meat industry, and not forgetting our own government.

My dire financial straits have me thinking that maybe I should take a course in aircraft engineering, or hydraulic-seal manufacturing. You never know when something like that might come in handy!

If there are any rough diamonds out there going spare, well you know…

Rag and Bone Men

What do Popes, horses, and bones, all have in common I wonder? On February 11th Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, the first pope to do so in 600 years. Of course, it had nothing to do with any stolen private papers by an ex-secretary.
According to various researchers studying the ‘Prophesy of the Popes’, he is the last-but-one Pope ‘til the end of the world, ‘when the city on seven hills will be destroyed, and the terrible judge will judge his people’.

Ireland’s St Malachy, so we are told, prophesized that the last Pope to be appointed, before the great and dreadful day of the Lord, would be called ‘Petrus Romanus’. It’s interesting to note that two out of various contenders just happen to have Peter (Petrus) as a name. The Vatican is well-aware of the prophesy.

What fun the doomsayers will have with this one!
Talking of prophesy, February 11th is also the anniversary of the day in 1858 that a young Bernadette Soubirous witnessed an apparition of the Virgin Mary who said, “Go drink in the spring and wash in its waters.”

In obedience Bernadette dug the ground with her hands and a previously unknown spring of water gushed out, becoming the largest Catholic pilgrimage shrine in Europe, at the small Pyrenees town of Lourdes, France.

The Vatican is quite versed in understanding prophesy, as Pope Benedict XVI explains in his writings on other famous ‘Marian visions’, such as those at Fatima, Portugal, on which he reviews the ‘Third Secret of Fatima’.
February 11th is the birth date of Elizabeth of York (1465), that’s King Richard III (Bones in the car park fame – Shakespeare’s ‘A horse, a horse, my Kingdom for a horse’) niece, and Pope Gregory III election to the seat in 731. He’s the Pope responsible for outlawing Hippophagy (the eating of horse meat). According to Wilson’s Almanac, it’s also Alex Jones birthday.

Keeping it topical, the latest controversy to adorn cinema screens is the Hollywood propaganda film, Zero Dark Thirty. The word zero comes via the French zero, from the Venetian zero, which (together with cipher) comes via the Italian zefiro, from the Arabic ṣafira = "it was empty", ṣifr = "zero", "nothing". This was a translation of the Sanskrit word shoonya, meaning "empty".

Thirty is a square pyramidal number, and a double star in the constellation Pegasus. According to legend, everywhere the Ancient Greek Horse-God Pegasus struck his hoof to the earth, an inspiring spring burst forth.
Carl Jung and his followers have seen in Pegasus a profound symbolic esoteric in relation to the spiritual energy that allows access to the realm of the Gods of Olympus. (Wiki)

The Thirtieth Degree of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in Canada was known as Knight Kadosh. The term ‘Kadosh’is derived from the Hebrew word "קדוש", which means holy or consecrated. (Wiki)

What does all this translate to? A dark empty pit, or spring run dry, poisoned by the unclean practices of others? Defiling the sacred? A dark period of time that is about to befall the planet, destroying the human spirit? It could mean anything depending on your synchromystic leanings.

A final note… Pope, the horse (1806 – 29 August 1831), also known as Waxy Pope, was a thoroughbred racehorse that won the 1809 Epsom Derby, and was a leading sire in Ireland. Pope died on 29 August 1831 at a place called Clearwell!
