An Ice Cube Chants in Hell. . . God Dances



Essentially, there is Something



& there is Nothing


We can talk about A HOLE


Or we can talk about A WHOLE


I've been prompted to begin this 'something' --now, and here as opposed to later and over there. . .(I've been sitting & floating on this Ice Cube for a while now, expecting to use it as the intro to my look at the architecture of the universe summed up in the number "432", but)

A Perfect Storm of sync is upon us (I think)


For a time now I've considered the idea of The Whole, in both its micro & macro formulations. It is my assertion that the wholeness of an individual is dependent upon the integration of his 'parts'. There must be a cohesion of The Three Kings!

I've spoken about the three kingdoms off and on now for the better part of this Tiger. The reason likely, is the necessity of healing the wounded King. He is causing a wasteland for us--(think about The Empire under Darth Vader, or Scar's reign after the murder of his brother, the rightful King.) The Purpose of The Whole is healing. We are here to help each other, (and to maybe change the world)


Let's talk about integration, shall we?

So I've been speaking about "the three kingdoms"--Heaven, represented by the branches of the tree; Earth, represented by the trunk of the tree; and Hell, represented by the roots. These are also symbols for the 'parts' of an individual: Heaven = Mind, Earth = Body, Spirit/Soul = Underworld.

We can't have leaves without roots, so the two structures naturally mirror one another. The snake and eagle are the same image. (For more see three recent posts here at the whole: 432, Greenman, 314)


This research, focused upon the Macrocosm, (the universe) & the Microcosm (the individual), isn't new, and this path is well worn to be sure, but I'm compelled to continue. . .

Here is our year in terms of the three kingdoms:

Spring/Fall = Earth

Summer = Heaven

Winter = Hell.

Satan (is the Starman who) "falls" to earth and becomes flesh after the heavenly summer.

He descends to Hell in the frozen subconscious winter.

Jesus returns to earth and is reborn in the spring.

He then ascends to Heaven again in the summer.

For integration, Jesus needs the Devil. Don't flee your shadow! Hug your devils. Integrate. Sync, don't swim. The King of Love is a Deadman & The King of Death is a fucker!

What I love about sync though, is of course that there always is one film that is able to contain the exact idea I'm trying to articulate. . .


Recently, when Mr. Smith went to Jupiter I was tickled by this image:


I wasn't aware that Washington DC was laid out precisely like the tree-model of my so called "Three Kingdoms".

What I noticed for the first time, was the order of the Capitol Mall-- Capitol Building, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial.

Recall our Kings:

MIND Zeus

BODY Pan(or Dionysus)

SPIRIT Hades (Poseidon--Lucifer/Venus)

now, look down the mall again. . .

all the way down is the "Jupiter" Temple of Abraham Lincoln

in the middle is the diamond shaped heart of the capitol, an obelisk (a symbolic phallus representative of the god of sex and death; the greenman).

in the direct foreground is the womb-like dome of the Capitol Building atop witch sits a Black Madonna, Isis. A Womb, and a Tomb.

--so then by my estimation, what we are undergoing currently, is the union of the parts, both microcosmically and macrocosmically. We are witnessing the union of MOM & POP, the something & the nothing, on earth, in Jesus. . .

Jesus? Sorry, I suppose I should say in Mark Whalberg.

The film The Three Kings is about the gulf war in 1991. This is Iraq I, and the film is deeply about the American way of life and OIL. (In a material world the GOD we serve is Gold, Oil, & Drugs.)

So what happens to three American soldiers when they have to see their dark enemy as their brother? Well, they become willing to give up their material for the safety of the individuals who took them in and cared for them in their moment of need--and Mark Whalberg, (our beautiful Jesus, forced to literally drink oil in the film and tortured as our proxy, almost gave up his life for these people).


But, you know there is more, right?

Let's start with Mr. Galactic Center. . .


George Clooney tends to play the planner. He's the brains, (The A Team's "Hannibal" so to speak) and he's slick too. George Crooney.



to emphasize the location of his kingdom, he starred in this film last year. . .


The next connection won't be a Love connection or The Confessions of A Dangerous Mind, but a Westside Connection


Let's talk about Gangstas and The Underworld. . . in LA

--"The map reveals an entrance to the Underworld in Hollywood, beneath the Hollywood Sign."
so if Geroge Clooney is UP In The Air, and thus (The American) eagle in the branches of the tree. . . Ice Cube is his mirror as the snake in the roots:
In Dante's Inferno, the lowest level of hell is frozen. Ice Cube seems to fit nicely as the King of the Underworld. So fascinating too, as gangster rap really speaks to the subconscious id of America--straight from the dream factory too.

It's remarkable how in so many societies the dynamism of the culture comes not from the ruling overclass, but the struggling, poor underclass.

The American art form is a product of its horrible past--from slavery we arrive at pop music via blues, jazz, and rock 'n roll. It is so ironic too that the carrier of the "black" message often must be white to be heard--think Elvis, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones (the whole British invasion for that matter), Eminem, Vampire Weekend. Bruce Lee was too much of a 'darkman' for this country, and so they cast David Caridine in Kung Fu.

Anway, having a black president speaks volumes as to where our current moment is.

Half the country thinks this is heaven, half thinks it's hell.
-we know that they are both right. . .

khrist konsciousness is both the light of the sun of the dark father and the deep black of the endless abyss behind the mask of our ego. the dark messiah who brings the light represents the story of sacrifice, fall and ascension that is Us

--there is a hint more here that your incredible video is prompting me to tease out, Tye.

My kids have been watching The Lion King nonstop for a week or so now. Something I hadn't ever really recognized, came to me recetly--kinda of a duhh moment actually. Simba (the younger) is played by Jonathan Taylor Thomas:
Jonathan Taylor Thomas (born September 8, 1981) is an American actor, former child star, and teen idol. He was well known for his role of middle child Randy Taylor on the sitcom Home Improvement and as the voice of the young Simba in Disney's The Lion King.
I knew that. The realization was that the voice of Simba (the younger) for the songs was modeled upon MJ as he sang in the Jackson Five.--see, the young prince, and rightful king, poor torn Hamlet was sung, not by the white actor, but by Jason Michael Weaver.

Jason Michael Weaver (born July 18, 1979) also known by his stage name J-Weav, is an American actor and singer. He is perhaps best known for his television roles as a pre-teenage Michael Jackson in the Emmy Award-winning 1992 miniseries The Jacksons: An American Dream, and as high school student Marcus Henderson on the WB sitcom Smart Guy.



At some point this get too weird, right? Of course there is more. Do you recall the actor who voiced Simba (the elder)?





honestly, I don't know what to say about this. Surfs UP?

I do have a few topics from Wiki that perhaps can make this less clear. . .

Dark Matter

In astronomy and cosmology, dark matter is matter that is inferred to exist from gravitational effects on visible matter and background radiation, but is undetectable by emitted or scattered electromagnetic radiation.[1] Its existence was hypothesized to account for discrepancies between measurements of the mass of galaxies, clusters of galaxies and the entire universe made through dynamical and general relativistic means, and measurements based on the mass of the visible "luminous" matter these objects contain: stars and the gas and dust of the interstellar and intergalactic media. According to observations of structures larger than galaxies, as well as Big Bang cosmology interpreted under the "Friedmann equations" and the "FLRW metric", dark matter accounts for 23% of the mass-energy density of the observable universe, while the ordinary matter accounts for only 4.6% (the remainder is attributed to dark energy).[2] From these figures, dark matter constitutes 80% of the matter in the universe, while ordinary matter makes up only 20%.~Wikipedia


Dark Energy

In physical cosmology, astronomy and celestial mechanics, dark energy is a hypothetical form of energy that permeates all of space and tends to increase the rate of expansion of the universe.[1] Dark energy is the most popular way to explain recent observations and experiments that the universe appears to be expanding at an accelerating rate. In the standard model of cosmology, dark energy currently accounts for 74% of the total mass-energy of the universe.[2] ~Wikipedia


Dark City is a 1998 science fiction film directed by Alex Proyas. In the film, human inhabitants live in a city where the sun is not seen, and their lives are manipulated by alien Strangers studying humanity.~Wikipedia

--I have been reading a lot about the effects of technology upon the brain, how the brain actually remakes itself after a new pattern begin, just like the Dark City--how it is new everyday. Our tech is changing the patterns. . . I suppose I'm looking toward an Inception with much interest.



"Ellen Page as Ariadne, the Architect - a college graduate student who constructs the world of the dream.[9]"
The Athenians asked for terms, and were required to sacrifice seven young men and seven maidens every nine years to the Minotaur. One year, the sacrificial party included Theseus, a young man who volunteered to come and kill the Minotaur. Ariadne fell in love at first sight, and helped him by giving him a sword and a ball of red fleece thread that she was spinning, so that he could find his way out of the Minotaur's labyrinth.~Wikipedia (Ariadne)

  2. Calvin Klein once lived at 55 Central Park West - the building that had a stargate open atop it in Ghostbusters.
    Per Wiki:
    "In the film, the building is said to have been designed by an insane architect named Ivo Shandor, who started a secret society which performed rituals on the building's roof as early as 1920. The building, however, was not built until 1929. Since the movie used the building in 1984 it has been known as the "Ghostbusters Building," though it was portrayed as much taller in the film. Well known residents of the building have included Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Noel Ashman, Marsha Mason & Ted Zagat."

    Right up the block, on 72nd street (72->77) is The Dakota, construction of which was completed in 1884 (ghostbusters came out 1984). The Dakota was the setting for Rosemary's Baby & Vanilla Sky. It's also where John Lennon was murdered.

    Vanilla Sky (Vanilla ICE) about waking from an artificial matrix. Came out in 2001 and costars Kurt Russell (of 911Stargate fame) has a theme song by John Lennon's costar Paul McCartney. Nominated for Oscar. Another 4 wins & 20 nominations. 4&20=BP.

    Rituals, Deaths, Ghosts, Demons, Moon Children, Waking from the dream.

    The CAP is removed - the VEIL between the underworld and earth is lifted.

  3. I hope you are reading this silence correctly as awe. I'm pretty sure everyone is too stunned to even know what to say.
    truly amazing. I'm blessed to share space with you.
    --I have a tweet I'm afraid to post, fearing misconstrued racism, but what I would say is, "In another life, I'm a dark prince living in 'black mecca'. . ."

  8. man... dont know what to say. difficult to express how much i appreciate the appreciation... and to know that my work inspires... you guys' stuff is my inspiration... feedback loop. i thought a lot about StarMummy, Predapocalypto and King of Love when makin this. we are developing a new way of communicating ideas here- via synk -and the videos are a way of saying something without saying it. crazy.

    i imagine an inspiration implosion of video production technique and synchronicity feedback/piggybacking worthy of the synkpocalypse of 2010

  9. And from every roof top the sound echoes... The declaration of an idea that can no longer be suppressed.... The sound simply says that which all of us want every inch of existence to know...

  10. The Coming of the Cosmic Christ is a GREAT book! So glad you posted it. I feel like that author captures certain elements very well, like for instance why mysticism has been a dead part of our cultural lives for so long and is reemerging.
    Boy is it ever.

    Also, I thought of 3Kings when I saw some article on Lebron James coming to Miami to join two other basketball players. They used that phrase for the title of the photo. Because everyone always called him King James in cleveland. I thought to myself, "ok, so if now we have the 3 Kings, then where's you-know-who?" : )

  12. I skimmed some of your blogs AF8--very nice work.
    also I like how you are tying the King James stuff into my three kings, nice. didn't see that at all.

    stay in touch, you've got a great eye (⊙)
