“I love monsters the way people worship holy images.”
–Guillermo del Toro
(Allegedly) on this day in 1531, Juan Diego, an indigenous citizen of Mexico, first saw the Blessed Virgin Mary apparition that would later kick off the popular Our Lady Of Guadalupe cult. We’ve briefly discussed Blessed Virgin Mary (B.V.M.) apparitions here before, name-dropping Our Lady Of Fatima (as well as the Flatwoods Monster).
Now, did Diego (also known as Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin) see the actual mother of Christ…or was this an Entity Unknown whom the already-devout Roman Catholic saw and interpreted through a Christian lens? And/or, was this entity some sort of embodiment of a deeper Divine Feminine/Goddess-type energy that had already been residing in ancient Mexico that entire time?
And/or: was this entire story embellished by the Roman Catholic leadership to justify/facilitate the (at-times forcible) spread of the religion through the Indian population?
As always, I tend to lean slightly in the “All Of The Above” category.
A whole mess of documents released through the efforts of The Black Vault site via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) seem to further give credence to the opinion that the whole MKUltra thing was like a real thing the U.S. Government was involved in & not just a conspiracy theorist’s fever dream.
This release garnered some mainstream media coverage, with Newsweek focusing on one document in particular, regarding the topic of mind control experiments on dogs. Basically: the idea of “remote-controlling” dogs through brain implants (uh…I guess for those lazy owners).
And reading all that made the following idea pop in my head:
Earlier, I wrote about how the CIA-sponsored psychic programs like STARGATE are now obsolete because there is so much more that can be accomplished beyond remote viewing/telepathic shenanigans via our current technology and simple online meme-manipulation.
I now say: ditto for MKUltra.
Just in terms of direct hookup to the brain alone. We are like two billion times past the point of “Classic” MKUltra (I mean, at least potentially), and the best part is: a good portion of it is freely talked-about in the media and NOBODY CARES!
Here are other stories around the Internet I found of interest:
- They are currently developing sex robots who can feel pain and rejection when you dump them. You know…just to heighten the sexual thrill.
- A 22-year-old developer for Google was found dead at his desk at the mega-company’s NYC office. A janitor discovered his body.
- Spongebob Squarepants creator Stephen Hillenburg has just had his ashes scattered at sea, completing that particular “Time Is A Flat Circle” moment.
- And the Daily Grail has a post on author Jeffrey J. Kripal, mentioning a podcast interview he recently did with New Thinking Allowed, as well as his most recent book, Secret Body: Erotic and Esoteric Currents in the History of Religion. I really like Kripal’s take on esoteric topics, and consider his Mutants and Mystics to be one of the key texts I go back to over and over again.
I’ve been sick-ish the past two weeks, but am really starting to get my energy back. I feel much more in-touch with what I need to do with this site and where it is going. I’m going to try to do more “current events” posts on things like my “take” on certain trailers like the new Infinity War (you know: the really *important* stuff).
I’ve also made a list of 70 movies I want to finish viewing by February…partially because I experience extreme “too many choices” overwhelm with my streaming services, partially just to motivate my ass to watch some key films and write some new content about them. I’ve just finished Mars Attacks! yesterday & got a lot of notes out of that…today I’m finishing up the Keanu Reeves/Winona Ryder joint Destination Wedding (a.k.a. “The Incel and the SJW”).
So like the first 15 on the list are:
- Mars Attacks!
- Destination Wedding
- The Game
- Pet Semetary I & II (I’m very much into “chunking” sequels)
- Power Rangers (2017)
- The Mask
- Pacific Rim Uprising
- The Shape Of Water
- IT (2017)
- Wonder Woman
- Justice League
- Blade Runner 2049
- The Mummy (2017)
- Liar Liar
And so: a pretty broad spectrum, I think, though I’m not getting much into any “deep cuts” at this point. Please wish me luck on this momentous enterprise!
“Homosuperior in my interior
But from the skin out
I’m Homosapien too
And you’re Homosapien too”
It sort of plays like a quick visual history of the development of humankind, with (at least in my opinion) a little bit of an Ancient Astronauts-type vibe…
We’ve got Anubis…
And the Fool from the Crowley Thoth Deck…
So there you are: enjoy, and have a lovely Sunday.
