Time is a flat circle. Everything we have done or will do we will do over and over and over again—forever.
–Rust Cohle, “True Detective”

It all comes back around: re-cycles, closed-loops, spirals, call-backs, remixes. Such as the case in these examples from pop-culture:

Warner Bros. Pulling “Geostorm” Posters Out Of Theaters ‘Cause Too Real Man

Talk about your bad timing! The Warner Bros. weather disaster movie Geostorm is scheduled to hit screens October 20th…but the studio just pulled the posters for the film out of theaters out of respect for those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The poster in question features a massive wave about to pour over skyscrapers in a major city and presumably drown a guy and his little kid. Its tagline is “Brave The Storm.”

The “IT” And “27 Club” Connection

I would assume that a number of our readers are familiar with the weird synchronicities and whatnot involved with the number 23. Then there is the “27 Club”…the sync where a number of famous rock stars like Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison, and Amy Winehouse all died at the age of 27.

Now I’ve found out that there is a weird connection brought up about the number 27 and the book/TV miniseries/movie IT

A Boy And His Daimon: “Death Note” (2017) Esoteric Theories

death-note-2017.jpg

The movie Death Note, which was recently released on Netflix, is somewhat based on the popular manga and anime of the same name. There is controversy in fan circles regarding this film, because #1 the main characters are no longer Japanese (true) and #2 that it is not super-faithful to the source material (true: this film is to the manga what Stanley Kubrick’s Shining was to the Stephen King version, at least in terms of a much different tone).

I’m not tackling that controversy here, but I am going to take a look at the film “as-is,” for the purposes of esoteric and synchromystic analysis. Spoilers ahead.

Robins, Jokers, And Horus-Set

Let’s start this with a look at a post I did last year, “The Sacred Trinity: Triads In Pop-Culture And Mythology.” In that, I said there was a basic archetypal trio or “trinity” that operated in pop-culture, especially comic books: Isis (the Mother), Osiris (the Father) and Horus (the Son). It didn’t matter if these characters were actually related to each other, or what their specific relationships with each other was. If there was a Woman (say, Supergirl) a Man (Superman) and a Child (Superboy): you now had a Trinity!

For the very popular Batman franchise, this was a natural fit: Batgirl or Catwoman was the Isis-figure, Batman was Osiris, and Robin (dressed in his bird costume) made a fitting hawk-Horus. Again, the actual relationships between the characters, and their connection (or lack thereof) to Egyptian mythology was unimportant—simply seeing in visual form this Trinity “activates” primal recognition in the group subconscious.
