4.16.19: Many Miles Away

The actual processes of individuation—the conscious coming-to-terms with one’s own inner center (psychic nucleus) or Self—generally begins with a wounding of the personality and the suffering that accompanies it. This initial shock amounts to a sort of “call,” although it is often not recognized as such.

Better Call Paul: The Mystery of the “Winged Beatle”

“…the accepted myth involves the premature death of a youth who is transformed by death into a god. This is a prevalent theme from Osiris and Achilles to Jesus Christ.”
–R. Gary Patterson, “The Walrus Was Paul”

“I’m not the phony—THEY are!”
–Saul Cartwright, “Batman” #222

We’re going to discuss now one of the key pop-culture conspiracy theories of the 20th Century…the supposed death and replacement of Beatle Paul McCartney. It is the Rosetta Stone for so many other celebrity doppelgänger folktales (up to “Dave Chappelle’s Clone” in the present day).

“Conspiracy is natural primate behavior.”
–Robert Anton Wilson

Today is the Ides Of March; on the precipice of Spring, traditionally a time of settling debts before the true dawning of the New Year (celebrating the rebirth of Attis, the Vernal Equinox).

The Ides: the middle of the month, sacred to Jupiter, the Flamen Dialis hustling the Ides sheep along the Via Sacra to the arx to be sacrificed. Or we can consider the scapegoat of the ancient pharmakós ritual, on Mamuralia which is also on the Ides of March; the scapegoat, the Ides sheep, representing the departing of the Old Year with all its sins.
