|Look into the Sun|
Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present, controls the past.
-Goerge Orwell, 1984
The great unmentionable evil at the centre of our culture is monotheism. From a barbaric Bronze Age text known as the Old Testament, three anti-human religions have evolved - Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
I have had the feeling lately that the ominous events occurring in our world are the beginning of something big and very dark. I feel there are forces at work attempting to deceive us and manipulate us, and as Gore Vidal points out, they've been doing so for a long time.
The three prison religions are just the beginning, though. Rhoda, the apocryphal sister of the Virgin Mary, and one of the deities in the Cubby pantheon, visited me the other night as I was working late into the early morning hours on this online Missalette of Fortune, and wanted me to relay three messages to our audience at the Hemlock Tavern where we Cubby Creatures were going to play the following night. The first two messages had to do with her desire for people to realize that the Cubby Creatures are just a part of what The Cubby is all about--that we a larger collective who put out a zine, have a TV show and a Web site. But her last message was considerably more esoteric and only now am I realizing the full extent of its meaning.
She told me: "Beware of sun worshipers with reptilian blood who want to put microchips in your body." She didn't explain that message to me and was gone before I had a chance to ask her. I asked the audience at the Hemlock Tavern if they knew what she meant. But no one answered.
I'm realizing now that what she was talking about was the exact same thing that I have been so concerned about recently--the feeling that the dark side of the force is taking hold. The "sun worshippers" are in control and want us to think they worship the "son" instead, one of the contrived "anti-human religions" Gore mentioned. The reptilian blood is perhaps symbolic of how these sun worshippers have passed their blood, or beliefs, down through the ages, since the time of their great ancestors--the Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks and Romans--who worshipped the sun without hiding the fact. And the microchips in our bodies? Well, if you haven't heard, the first people--a family in Florida--have allowed (hell, they even paid for it) microchips to be inserted into their bodies so that with a scanner, you can scan over the area of the body where the microchip is, and acquire all their vital statistics, like name, address, age, medical history, social security number, etc. It's called the VeriChip, it is produced by the VeriChip Corporation, it is the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved human-implantable RFID microchip, and it is very real. This will allows the ultimate control over people, and as George Orwell points out, "Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present, controls the past."
Well, if that isn't enough to scare the jesus (son, sun) out of you, I don't know what is. I believe there is hope, though. My hope is The Cubby, my source of inspiration--my inner power, if you will--that pushes me to create. This is exactly what the "sun worshippers" do not want us to do. For it is through creation and art that we taste freedom and encourage others to do the same.
And what I (and all those involved with the Missalette of Fortune, including Rhoda) have created here with the Missalette of Fortune Web site is something I consider to be an X-ray, allowing us to see through the deceptive symbols of our time. The twelve signs of the Zodiac are the twelve disciples, each with a message that comes from the desire to create and to share with others their experience of creation. And in the middle is the Sun, or Son, the light the Cubby, where you will find a tremendous amount of information about the sun that could lead to enLIGHTenment. So look into the Sun, let in the Cubby, and act on your inspiration.
