I was conversing with my friend and architectural historian Dr. Frank Albo about the Oxford pub Eagle and Child and its role as a meeting place for J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams and Hugo Dyson. It was at the Eagle and Child that this group of some of the most influential writers of the 20th century shared and developed their great myths and stories.
Of great interest to me was when Dr. Albo mentioned C.S. Lewis and how a colleague Dr. Michael Ward from Oxford had not too long ago uncovered the "Narnia Code." Check out his site.
The basic premise of the Narnia Code is that Lewis' seven books represented the Seven Heavens of the ancients. Specifically the first book The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe was modeled after the King of Planets - Jupiter.
Here is Dr. Ward explaining his theory about Jupiter, the first book in the Narnia series.
Narnia is Jupiter and Jupiter resonates Christ. This is great stuff.
Of course some of us in the sync world have deduced the same conclusion as Dr. Ward.
Perhaps this is best explored in the sync video Hey Zeus! made by myself and Jake Kotze back in 2010. In the video we use sync to connect Zeus/Jupiter with Jesus and as well the number 42 aka the Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything.
Sync research supports the Narnia Code even more as we realize that Aslan, the Great Lion and King of the Beasts, is representative of both Jupiter and Jesus.
In the 2005 movie The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Aslan is voiced by Liam Neeson. The last scene of HeyZeus! has Neeson in Gangs of New York superimposed over the red storm of Jupiter.
As well Liam Neeson plays Zeus (Jupiter) in Clash of the Titans. (opened on April 2nd or 4/2, a sync wink to 42)
Further sync inquiry into the Narnia Code (Thanks to @NexusOfSync) leads us to realize that the children as a group first enter into Narnia (Jupiter) via the Wardrobe on page 42.
The first words on page 42 as the youth enter Narnia's forest are "By Jove, you're right."
Jove being a name for Jupiter.
Jupiter and 42 (the Answer to Life the Universe and Everything) go hand in hand as has been previously explored in sync work here at the Sync Whole many times before.
