Opening Of The Mouth - Down The Rabbit Hole - Redux - Part 1


Opening Of The Mouth - Down The Rabbit Hole - Redux - Part 1
*Post now broken into 2 parts, for ease and allowing for various additions*

An updated piece on 'the opening of the mouth'...to group many multiple aspects/sources together.
Be advised, this is not presented (or meant to be) in the typical 'literal narrative and/or linear film sense'...but from the POV of 'esoteric symbolism', 'thematic/archetypal/aesthethic/subtext inter-connectedness' and the synchronistic relationship etc, of the key personnel (in front of & behind the camera) within that framework.


In Egyptian mythology...there is the journey to the underworld where
the rod/device (adze/ahnetjer) to “open the way/mouth” is used to open
the mouth of the ‘black serpent’ (blackhole/wormhole).

featuring...





with...
 Harrison Ford, Carlo Rambaldi, Willem Dafoe, David Lynch, Jodie Foster, H R Giger,Ridley Scott etc


Firstly...just in case this is all new too you:

 The Shining - Re-cap
'opening of the mouth' 
(intercut appropriately, with Blade Runner)



Full...The Shining & 2001:ASO post here...for more. (2001/The Shining 'synch' is posted there too)

The Shining...The Hall of Two Judgements & The Afterlife.

ADZE - AHNETJER

The adze is shown in ancient Egypt from the Old Kingdom onward. Originally the adze blades were made of stone, but already in the Predynastic Period copper adzes had all but replaced those made of flint. While stone blades were fastened to the wooden handle by tying, metal blades had sockets into which the handle was fitted. Examples of Egyptian adzes can be found in museums and on the Petrie Museum website.
A depiction of an adze was also used as a hieroglyph, representing the consonants stp, "chosen", and used as: ...Pharaoh XX, chosen of God/Goddess YY...

The ritual was thus be performed with various implements, most commonly a wood-carving adze, which were touched to the lips by the officiating priest. 

The 'Afterlife' Hotel
 The Hall of Two Judgements...Lobby Hallway 'End to End'...Ahnetjer one end, 'monolith judgement doorway' other end.


The ahnetjer depicted as an adze-like instrument, was used in the Opening of the Mouth ceremony, intended to convey power over their senses to statues and mummies. It was apparently the foreleg of a freshly sacrificed bull or cow (minotaur/maze) with which the mouth was touched.

The 'Ahnetjer Hallway'...Jack rises (after hearing Danny scream) so his head/mouth passes through and overlays the 'ahnetjer' (behind him obscured, bottom middle pic) in the Hallway of  Two Judgements...just as would be for a mummy entering the afterlife, to animate symbolically!

Alice's journey down the wormhole

 Lepus...Orion (Osiris) Sirius/Dog (Isis) near
The da'ath wormhole to Sirius


Alice & the rabbit (worm) hole...'through the looking glass'

 Jason tells her about a comic book he is writing called "Rabbit Hole", which is about parallel universes, and gives it to Becca to read who thinks it is wonderful.

The rabbit/hare and dog
Dog (canis major/dogstar) Rabbit/Hare (Lepus) Hunter (Orion), top

Recall she also starred in Von Trier's Dog-ville...ending with moses the dog (canis/sirius) 
 As the ashes of Dogville smolder around her, she finds and spares the only surviving resident, Moses the dog, the only resident not to have wronged her, who had disappeared while the town was revealing its true nature.
(sirius/canis/dog next to the rabbit/lepus...see constellation above)

Rabbit Hole
 Becca (Nicole Kidman) and Howie Corbett (Aaron Eckhart) mourn the death of their 4-year-old son Danny who was killed in a car accident when he ran out into the street after his dog.

Recall this from Jack in The Shining...

"Hair of the dog...that bit me"
 Hair (Hare/Rabbit) of the dog (Sirius/canis) that bit me...look at the star map again!
Hare/Rabbit & Dog...the reference is CELESTIAL and connected to Orion!

"As above...so below" (the first maxim, remember!)


 Dog chasing the hare...the dog that bit the hare/hair

Al(ice) Bowlly - song that segues in on the back of the iced and frozen Jack...Al & ice.
 Midnight, the star(s) & YOU. (sirius guidance ala Alice Bailey, the antahkarana bridge)

 Becca (Nicole Kidman) and Howie Corbett (Aaron Eckhart) mourn the death of their 4-year-old son Danny who was killed in a car accident when he ran out into the street after his dog.

Danny...Bugs Bunny and 'through the looking glass'
 The 'What's Up Doc' motif for Danny (The Shining) satisfying the rabbit aspect and also with his 42 bugs bunny top.

"As above, so below"...Jack's pose in the ending photo!

The Shining stars in the heavens...midnight, the stars & you.
"And we all shine on, like the moon, the stars and the sun!
Yup...they're nearly all there...it's like The Shining 'casting couch' lol!


The rabbit/hare (bugs) & the great bear

 Jack's 'beetle' via betelgeuse...he'll play Orion 'the dying god' too.


The great dog/sirius & hare/rabbit via Jack's 'hair/hare of the dog' dialogue

 The charioteer via Danny's chariot-cum-tricycle

 The bull (Jack the minotaur/bull/apis in the maze)

 The twins (the grady twins aka gemini/castor & pollux


'midnight, the stars & you'...pole star is north at the 'midnight' position on chart

 Orion/Osiris 'the dying god' is Jack wealding his axe, like Orion the hunter, who is associated with the axe/club. The above 'stone relief' showing Orion about to exit Tauraus (bull, above the fish) and enter Pisces (fish), as in the 'ages' sense.

The next reference is a little tenuous...but I've put it in for fun.
 The crab...a sideways walking creature (a sidewinder, there is an actual species with this name), in The Shining 'Sidewinder' is the nearest town to the Overlook, and that's where Wendy originally planned to take Danny in the 'snow-cat'.

The Pleiades can perhaps be interpreted as a mother hen with her chickens (Wendy/Danny).   



The 'unicorn' I'm still looking at, it features heavily in Blade Runner and Donnie Darko etc.

Could it be Danny and Tony...the protruding finger?

 Is 'Tony' (protruding single finger, posed near the head) the horn/alicorn of the 'unicorn'?

Perseus (top right on star map) (Greek: Περσεύς), the legendary founder of Mycenae and of the Perseid dynasty of Danaans there, was the first of the heroes of Greek mythology. Perseus was a demi-god, the Greek hero who killed the Gorgon Medusa (the Dan-aans killing 'Gorgon' Jack via the maze).  Perseus was the son of Zeus and Danaë, (Danae/Danny) who by her very name, was the archetype of all the Danaans. In Clash of the Titans film...Perseus kills Medusa via a mirrored reflection and mirrors are a key aspect in The Shining.

The 'Charioteer' (Danny & constellation) is directly next to Perseus (Danae/Danny/Danaan)

The pegasus is reborn from the dead head of medusa, the old head replaced with the new...
Wings/Caduceus of Hermes/3rd eye awareness etc.
 Recall the unicorn is born out of Medusa's (severed head/blood)
...from an old head (death) to a new head (rebirth)

The Capella system is relatively close, at only 42 light-years from Earth. (see star map)

Deckard has a vision of 'the unicorn' in Blade Runner

Blade Runner
Blade Runner...geddit...the ritual blade (adze/ahnetjer/maker hook etc), running into the mouth!?
 

Originally the adze blades were made of stone, but already in the Predynastic Period copper adzes had all but replaced those made of flint. While stone blades were fastened to the wooden handle by tying, metal blades had sockets into which the handle was fitted.

Gaff
 Gaff...a 'hook-like' device akin to a adze/ahnetjer stick/rod, also relating Osiris' hook/crook
Gaff walks with a cane/stick and a noticeable limp.

Gaff, a mysterious character in the film, presents his compulsory invitation to Deckard in a street lingo called Cityspeak, a mixture of Spanish, French, Chinese, German, Hungarian, and Japanese. He is played by Edward James Olmos. As a fellow cop, he is quickly identified as being very different from Deckard through the ways he dresses and behaves. He tends to make little Origami figures. The last words heard in the film are spoken by him: "It's too bad she won't live. But then again, who does?"

Who better to play the Blade Runner than Harrison 'Indy Osiris Stargater' Ford...no one is more qualified imo.

All on the star map!

 
 The unicorn will feature
 as will a serpent
a dog (dead dog entree & other gun reference below)
Dekkard as Orion/Osiris (obviously)
 The blaster gun as 'The Bull' (& dog)...it is a composite of the .44 Bull-dog revolver
In the Indy series...his 'bull-whip' satisfied the 'bull/taurus' element.

We also saw the 'star' references with Ford & the Indiana Jones series (in my previous post) on the Dendera Star Map...see that post.  His role as the Tru Shepherd of Anu (aka Orion/Osiris!)

Blade Runner

 In the Egyptian mythology there is the journey to the underworld where the rod/device (adze/ahnetjer) to “open the way/mouth” is used to open the mouth of the ‘black serpent’ (blackhole/wormhole).


 THE OPENING OF THE MOUTH CEREMONY - EGYPT  (Adze/Ahnetjer, left black rod in front of pharoah)


The opening of the mouth ceremony (or ritual) was an ancient Egyptian ritual described in funerary texts such as the Pyramid Texts.

Funerary magic

The ritual involved the symbolic animation of a statue or mummy by magically opening its mouth so that it could breathe and speak. There is evidence of this ritual from the Old Kingdom to the Roman Period. Special tools were used to perform the ceremony, such as a ritual adze, an arm shaped ritual censer, a spooned blade known as a peseshkaf, a serpent-head blade, and a variety of other amulets. A calf's leg was also held up to the lips painted on the coffin.
The ancient Egyptians believed that in order for a person's soul to survive in the afterlife it would need to have food and water. The opening of the mouth ritual was thus performed so that the person who died could eat and drink again in the afterlife.


The Spell
My mouth is opened by Ptah,
My mouth's bonds are loosed by my city-god.
Thoth has come fully equipped with spells,
He looses the bonds of Seth from my mouth.
Atum has given me my hands,
They are placed as guardians.
My mouth is given to me,
My mouth is opened by Ptah,
With that chisel of metal
With which he opened the mouth of the gods.
I am Sekhmet-Wadjet who dwells in the west of heaven,
I am Sahyt among the souls of On.
  
Connections with Psalm 51
Parallels between the Opening of the Mouth and Psalm 51 have been noted. The parallels include:
  • Mentions of ritual washing with special herbs (Psalm 51:2,7).
  • Restoration of broken bones (verse 8).
  • "O Lord, open thou my lips" (verse 15).
  • Sacrifices (verses 16, 17, and 19).

The 'Gaping Mouth' Hotel
The Shining hotel set was partially based on the Ahwahnee Hotel...Ahwahnee in Miwok Indian means 'Gaping Mouth'

Gaping Mouth
 Danny's Opening of the Mouth...The Lift/Elevator is a version of 'the mouth' the dials above are the eyes (the word mouth originates from the Egyptian word Ma'at, as does the word Mother, which is where Matriarch comes from, Wendy is the 'matriarch' and she sees a similar vision to Danny.)

Danny: "He's a little boy that lives inside my mouth"

 Danny's Open Mouth

Manager: "He ran amuck, and uh, killed his family with an axe.  Stacked 'em neatly in one of the rooms of the West Wing, and uh, then he, uh, he put, uh, both barrels of a shotgun in his mouth."


Grady Twins - Adze/Ahnetjer

Doctor: "If you were to 'open your mouth' now, could I see Tony?"

Hallorann: "I can remember when I was a little boy.  My grandmother and I could hold conversations entirely without ever opening our mouths."


The ritual involved the symbolic animation of a statue or mummy by magically opening its mouth so that it could breathe and speak.
 Jack's frozen and mummified body.

The snow used during these ending scenes was a combination of salt and formaldehyde...both used in the preservation of bodies!

Mummification (Curing)
 Natron

Danny:  You wouldn't ever hurt Mummy & me, would you?

 Danny:  Mummy, mummy, mummy...  (end scene coming out of maze)

In order to live for all eternity and be presented in front of Osiris, the body of the deceased had to be preserved by mummification, so that the soul could reunite with it, and take pleasure in the Afterlife. The main process of mummification was dehydrating the body using natron, a natural material found in Wadi Natrun which is a combination of baking soda and salt, to preserve the body. The body is drained of any liquids and left with skin, hair and muscles preserved.  The 70 days (process of mummification) are connected to Osiris and the length the star Sirius/Sothis/Sopdet was absent from the sky.

Sleeping on salt
Holly Salt...for dehydration. (Natron)

He's been lying there for quite some time...and he's been eating (drinking), perhaps symbolic of the afterlife customs.

Baking Powder/Soda...for dehydration. (Natron)

Full scene...Judgement and the Afterlife, Osiris 'God-King', far right.
 
Awaiting the verdict of Thoth...Anubis & Ammit the 'heart swallower'

Weighing of the heart scene, with en:Ammit sitting, from the book of the dead of Hunefer. From the source: "The judgement, from the papyrus of the scribe Hunefer. 19th Dynasty. Hunefer is conducted to the balance by jackal-headed Anubis. The monster Ammit crouches beneath the balance so as to swallow the heart (reborn back into earthly duat) should a life of wickedness be indicated.  Anubis conducts the weighing on the scale of Maat, against the feather of truth. 


 Jack's been an evil entity...he is reborn back to the earthly plane (duat)
As the 'synch' showed...see The Shining/2001:ASO Endings post for the synch.

 Jack as the scales of ma'at (truth) and the 'as above, so below' aspect.
 The woman behind with the symbols of the heart & feather.

The ibis-headed Thoth, scribe of the gods, records the result. If his heart is lighter than the feather, Hunefer is allowed to pass into the afterlife. If not, he is eaten by the waiting chimeric devouring creature Ammit, which is composed of the deadly crocodile, lion, and hippopotamus. 

Anubis & the 'heart swallower' from the scales (horizontally flipped)
This is why this is seen near the close of the film (judgement)...it also relates to Danny's abuse by his father

The feather of ma'at & the judgement heart & horn

The 'dead' rising up out of coffin/tubs in the water...arms outstretched, Tarot XX Judgement
The 'dead' rising up out of coffin/tub filled with water...arms outstretched, just like the tarot card above, The Shining


Jack's Judgement (21 half of 42)
In the next panel, showing the scene after the weighing, a triumphant Hunefer, having passed the test, is presented by falcon-headed Horus to the shrine of the green-skinned Osiris, god of the underworld and the dead, accompanied by Isis and Nephthys. The 14 gods of Egypt are shown seated above, in the order of judges.

Rotten Green woman and green room
 A green-skinned old woman is what Jack sees (mirror reflected)...a kind of rotten (not preserved) female version of 'Osiris' (a reflected negative Osiris)...this happens in 237 (42)

  Anubis, would lead the dead to the Hall of Two Truths, where the deceased stand in front of 42 judges and Osiris.

Preserved Green Man

 
 Osiris '42'

Jack will not meet with Osiris in the afterlife...as the symbolic lesson of 237 shows him/us!

 He is reborn on the 4th July...back onto the earthly plane (duat)...just as the end shot photo and 'synch' overlay shows us.

In the underworld the deceased’s spirit must compete with gods, evil creatures and gatekeepers to reach Osiris and the Hall of Final Judgment.
 

After the dangerous journey through the underworld, the god of the dead, Anubis, would lead the dead to the Hall of Two Truths, where the deceased stand in front of 42 judges and Osiris.
(the 42 cipher)

 The Hall of Two Truths/Judgements...
 Lobby Hallway 'End to End'...Ahnetjer/stargate rug one end, 'monolith judgement gateway' other end.
You've seen all the relevant pictures already
& to summarize the whole cycle...

The Book of the Dead helped the deceased say the right words to the judges. The deceased is led to a set of scales where their heart was weighed against the feather of truth, which symbolizes Ma'at the goddess of justice. The fate of the deceased would be decided - either entrance into the perfect afterlife or their heart would be eaten by Ammit, the devourer of the dead. If the deceased passed the test the judges in the Hall of the Two Truths pronounced the following divine order.

This last part does not occur for Jack...as we've shown.

The final judgment is a meeting with Osiris. Osiris, lord of the underworld, sits on his throne, represented as a mummy. On his head is the white crown of Lower Egypt (the north). He holds the symbols of Egyptian kingship in his hands: the shepherd's crook to symbolize his role as shepherd of mankind, and the flail, representing his ability to separate the wheat from the chaff.

 

Behind him stand his wife Isis and her sister Nephthys. Isis is the one Together. Osiris, Isis and Nephthys welcome the deceased to the underworld. The afterlife was similar to the ordinary life, but more pleasant and enjoyable. The deceased would become a god and be accompanied by other gods. There was no evil and shabtis do any necessary labor. Poor people are wealthier and the old are young again.


OK...so that's the recap done.
Note in previous 'Shining' posts...we covered a lot of 'tarot' aspects and these apparent 'star map' references, add a further layer to the mix...See those 'earlier' posts in the blog menu section.


DUNE


 Lynch's Dune - Desert Planet  (just like Egypt)
Paul with his 'maker hook' (adze-ahnetjer) approaches the 'sand worm'.
Paul is the 'supreme being' he is a messiah/god king to be...like Osiris/Jesus.

Paul alongside the 'sand worm' placing the 'maker hook' (adze-ahnetjer) into it's side.

When he does so the following happens....
The 'sand worms' mouth opens...opening of the mouth/way 'wormhole' (literally).
He then goes on to...


Ride The Worm/Snake.
"Ride the snake, to the ancient lake"

"is everybody in?
is everybody in?
is everybody in?
the ceremony is about to begin"

Jim as Osiris Slain

The End - Doors

Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby
Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake is long, seven miles
Ride the snake...he's old, and his skin is cold

To the lake, the ancient lake, baby...
Dune.....To the ancient lake...Paul sees the fremen's huge water caches.
The 'ancient lake' (seat of god) of dew (water/water of life) secreted from the pineal gland in the head?

At the climax of Dune (Lynch) the camera moves onto Paul's right eye (sun) and then left eye (moon)...the camera zooms into his left eye (moon) and then as a result Paul magically creates rain...the moon & water connection doesn't need an explanation, we're all aware of its effects on the waters of the oceans etc.


Paul's left eye...the moon, just like the eye of Horus.
The Iris (Rainbow)

The moon is a crucial aspect of Paul's story arc...he gets a vision from the moon of Arrakis.

The mouse on the moon, mu-adib.

The sleeper has awakened!!!


This parallels with A Clockwork Orange, where the end is 'singin' in the rain'.
This could be an allusion to the rainbow bridge...a light beam is reaching to the heavens.
A hot & sunny desert planet with rain = rainbows.

Zeus/Maia were the parents of Hermes/Thoth.

The Atreides (via Atreus)...that line descends from Tantalus (Son of Zeus) and refers to the sons of Agamemnon & Menelaus...distant sons of Atreus are referred to as Atreides...Atreus once called upon Hermes/Thoth for advice on how to win back his throne and which he subsequently did.


Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby

Oliver Stone's The Doors (film) at the sand dunes...Kyle Maclachlan as Manzerek (far left)  Kyle played Paul Atreides in the above Dune film!

Ride The Snake...to the ancient lake




The DNA Ladder...Jacob's Rainbow Ladder.



Snaker rider...

A Clockwork Orange
Alex's 'snake' shown at the base of the bed (tree) and also shown on his bed, where the base of his spine would be...and the snake/worm aspect.

Alex's Opening of the Mouth
Alex's 'opening of the mouth/way' where he looks almost exactly like a 'mummy'...prior to HIS final judgement...geddit?  He's mummified just like Jack is (The Shining), or how Jack is represented to be!!!

Left...Alex as a mummified looking 'Osiris Risen' and right looking again like a mummy, for his opening of the mouth/way...before his rebirth....see next pic.


The rebirth through the sex act and/or the 'afterlife' as imagined in Alex's head.

"I was 'cured' alright."   (a play on words, in one aspect!)

Mummification (Curing)
 Natron

Cured as in...embalmed, dehydrated (natron), mummified... in order to live for eternity and be presented to Osiris...salt is used for 'curing' & preserving (exactly like the mummification process), just like Jack's 'Holly Salt' from earlier...geddit?

"There is the journey to the underworld where
the rod/device (adze/ahnetjer) to “open the way/mouth” is used..."
Platoon...'Opening of the mouth' in the 'underworld'
Oliver Stone's Platoon..."First time...Then the worm has definitely turned for you man?"

Gun in mouth (opening of the mouth/wormhole) and Dafoe blows pot smoke down the gun's barrel to Charlie (Martin 'Apocalypse Now' Sheen's son.)

Now what is playing in the background 'White Rabbit' by Jefferson Airplane...The White Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland.

"Go ask Alice..."
Follow the White Rabbit...down the 'wormhole' (opening of the mouth/way and in the underworld).

The above 'underworld' party scene is intercut with dialogue from an 'appropriate' character...just so he gets referenced with Alice and 'open mouth/wormhole' thematics that are going on concurrently...I give you:

 Bunny

 Bunny: What are they (the guys at the underworld party) doing over there? They're gettin' high, that's what.

another scene...
 Bunny: You know, Junior, some of the things we done, man...etc. The only worry you got is dying. And if that happens, you won't know about it anyway. So what the fuck, man.
Junior: Shit, I got to be in this hole with you, man? I just know I shouldn't have come.
(in the hole with the bunny rabbit, literally)

the sequel...

The 2nd in the trilogy.

Willem also turns up in this film...and look what he is doing, when we first meet him!


"Fuckin A! You know when you're really drunk on this mescal shit...[he drinks and then swallows the worm] is when you swallow the worm and you don't even know it!"

Tom/Kovic does it too...


Down The Worm Hole


EAT THE WORM - AT THE 'VILLA DEL SOL' (HOUSE/MANSION OF THE SUN)

The Worm - Caterpillar - Alice In Wonderland
Hookah/Hooker (ahnetjer) Smoker/Maker 'opening of the mouth/way'...like Defoe & Sheen.
Dune (Lynch)
Another 'hooker smoker/maker'  Guild Navigator (that folds space time/wormhole) Hell...they're virtually twins!!!

Open your mouth...Dune
This Navigator 'hookah maker-like spice smoker' is 'opening the mouth' (way/wormhole)...folding space/time.

More Dune 'eye openers'...I mean 'mouth openers'.

Double-take!

The role of Chris (Sheen's role in Platoon) was originally offered to Kyle MacLachlan, who turned it down. 

Rumour has it that Keanu 'sirius/ma'atrix' Reeves also turned the role down.


Kyle and Charlie

Giger's Dune
 A 70's Giger drawing...which he was doing for the shelved Jodorowsky project

ALIEN

Giger's mouth invading 'ahnetjer/adze-like' alien/facehugger

Early artwork depicting 'opening of the mouth'.
D2 (42) 

 In the original storyboards for Alien...the eggs/facehugger/alien was due to be found inside a derelict pyramid!
 The Pyramid of the AL-iens (AL = Anno Lucis/light beings?)...Dan O'Bannon & Ron Cobb

Inside the derelict the exploring crewmen find the ossified remains of the Space Jockey, and in the pyramid they stumble upon the Alien spore. “The pyramid and derelict -two different elements- were still the subject of a see-saw debate when I came on the project,” Ridley Scott is quoted as saying in The Book of Alien. “I would love to have shot [the pyramid], but the more I thought about it, the more I realized it would have been wonderful in a three-hour version.

 Opening of the Mouth...Kane/Cain/John Hurt (as in Raising Osiris, Kane, Cohen/Canaan, 'sons of cain', 'tubalcain' from freemasonry etc)

Kane was turned around, laid on the table, and held down by the crew, while they forced a spoon into his mouth to prevent him from choking on his tongue...spoon = peseshkaf.

Recall this...
Special tools were used to perform the ceremony, such as a ritual adze, an arm shaped ritual censer, a spooned blade known as a peseshkaf, a serpent-head blade, (ahnetjer etc) and other amulets.


 When the 'worm/alien' is born...it looks at the crew and opens it's mouth.

Ash's 'Opening of the Mouth' with Ripley.

H R Giger who designed the 'Alien' also uses this same 'doubled' thematic in the film Poltergeist II (see below)

Kane/Cain
 
Here he has a different 'Kane/Cain' take the form of a worm (from a tequila bottle like Born 4th July) who gets swallowed and then is regurgitated as 'Kane'...through the mouth!

"Hair of the dog...that bit me"

Giger's Opening of the mouth/wormhole...Poltergeist II
A real gross-out scene...drinking the mescal worm and vomiting out Rev Kane 'the beast'


This scene is inter-cut with Carol-Ann & Diane in the bath and Carol-Ann is talking about Alice (in Wonderland) getting back home...evoking the white rabbit.  


 Yup...again!!!

Swallow the worm...
 


It closely resembles the Born 4th July aspects from earlier!


 It also evokes the scene from Platoon (earlier), where Elias is talking about Chris' 'worm turning' and putting the rifle barrel in his mouth (wormhole) while White Rabbit (the song about Alice) is playing!

Poltergeist
 Another allusion to wormholes...in the first installment.


Saw Franchise


"The device you’re wearing is hooked into your upper and lower jaws. When the timer at the back goes off, your mouth will be permanently ripped open."

SAW - Amanda's 'Opening of the Mouth' and 'tricycle' ala Danny Torrance.

"Hello Danny...you've been running around that hotel all your life, now it's time to be judged"

Ullman says the hotel season closes on October 30th. This means that the Torrance's movie into the Overlook on Hallowe'en Day!

"Opening Wide"...as in the hooked mouth!
Opening of the Mouth & The Heart


...for Ammit/Amemet

Peter Pan...the green man

Opening of the mouth/wormhole with Capt Hook (maker hook-ahnetjer adze)
The mummified dead would require the ritual 'opening of the mouth ceremony' so that they could speak and eat in the afterlife...to be 'symbolically animated'.

 Spielberg



Hook will also evoke the white rabbit via Bob 'Roger Rabbit' Hoskins!

1975
 Opening of the Mouth

A scene that literally shows us the 'opening of the shark's mouth'
Hooked open mouth

4th July (The Shining 4th July) holiday roast and hook 
fisherman..."can we go home now" (no place like home) 

Speaks for itself!


Quint in the open mouth...adze-like blade at mouth


The hook/gaff and open mouth...the shark gets the gaff in the open mouth and submerges

The open mouth and the maker hook (gaff)

Open your mouth...so I can shoot

 Hooper (Dreyfuss) 
"Now why don't you take a long close look at this sign. Those proportions are correct."
 Fins aint what they used to be and the July 4th reference.
Of course, the veiled interpretation is spot on (an in-joke)...the pyramid is proportionally correct!

The 'i/eye' in the pyramid...the hex/seal of solomon
Erm...British 'masonic' Intelligence, anyone?

Jaws in Egypt - The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
Pyramids and a 'jaws' connection!
007 James (Jim/Jacob/Jack etc)...the eyes of John Dee over the pyramids 


 We go from the literal (Bond) wormhole to...


An 'opening of the ship's mouth'...teaser, the intro only alludes to the 'full scene' that we see later (and the one pictured below) but the method by which the subs are captured, is the same.

"Never Say Alan Again" (they even did an episode called Alan Wide Shut)
Yes...we even do comedy here @ synchro-sphere

"Stop talking about American things...and lets watch the best film ever made!"

 This should explain it (the opening)...Old Alan 'Aha' Patridge
"Glang, glanger, langer, langer, langer, langer...lang"

The intro to The Spy Who Loved Me is a part 'veiled' reference...and what actually happens (in full) becomes apparent, retrospectively! We see the Captain view 'the opening of the ship's mouth' via the periscope, but we are not shown the ship's 'mouth opening' visually...he just exclaims "Oh my God !"  (wink, wink).

From the Bond wormhole (opening of the wormhole/mouth/way) we go straight to the 'opening of the mouth/way/wormhole' of the ship Liparus!

Later, when Bond gets into the ship via a 3rd submarine (USS Wayne) we are shown the full 'opening of the ship's mouth'...in its entirety! (see pic below)
My mouth's bonds are loosed by my city-god.
He looses the bonds of Seth from my mouth.
Hence, Bond being onboard the sub...for the full 'opening of the mouth'

The USS Way-ne (sub) and the 'opening of a ship's mouth'...swallowing a sub 
  Ship/Tanker = Liparus
Liparus was a grandson of Odysseus.

"Opening of the mouth...Lip-arus"..."Opening the way...Way-ne" (USS)


 Perhaps the submarine (chisel of metal) is a 'symbolic rod/ahnetjer' to the opening of the ship's mouth!
 How many films have you seen where a ship opens its bow (like a mouth) and swallows a sub!?
The black rod shape (in the above pic) even part resembles the silhouette of a sub!

Lip-arus
A calf's leg (apis/bull etc) was also held up to the lips painted on the coffin.
 The ritual was thus be performed with various implements, most commonly a wood-carving adze, which were touched to the lips by the officiating priest. 


From the 'opening of the mouth' spell..Chp 23.
My mouth is opened by Ptah,
My mouth's bonds are loosed by my city-god.
Thoth has come fully equipped with spells,
He looses the bonds of Seth from my mouth.
My mouth is given to me,
My mouth is opened by Ptah,
With that chisel of metal 
With which he opened the mouth of the gods.
Well, well...look who is in the vicinity!
  Stanley 'opening of the mouth' Kubrick would assist Ken Adam in these opening elements and other lighting aspects!  Adam worked on Kubrick's Barry Lyndon and Dr Strangelove.
From what I recall, Stanley worked/assisted etc on the lighting of inside the ship's mouth @ the huge 007 stage.  I notice an opening  'chess' reference too, onboard the ship...which could also be Kubrick's influence!

The film was premiered on 7th July 1977, 007 on...7/7/77, for a massive kabbalistic pay-off!

Get this...
There is a Lipari/Lipara via mythology and there is a Liparian term that also relates to a destructive type of moth...'opening of the moth/mouth'!  It's actually a destructive bomb-ycid moth



Ha, ha...the 'subs' (British & Soviet) that are being swallowed are carrying ballistic missiles (bombs/bomb-ycid)

Greek mythology
Liparus was a grandson of Odysseus (Odyssey), from whom the name of the island of Lipara/Lipari was derived, he is called a son of Auson. Liparus succeeded Aeolus, who was 'king of the winds'. 

 Apis, as a form of Osiris, lord of the dead, it was believed that to be under the protection of the Apis bull, would give the person control over the four winds in the afterlife.


The Beatle/Beetle (Khepra) Motif
Via Beatle Ringo Starr's wife...Barbara Bach

The 'maker hook-ah' smoker...appropriately in Egypt

The worm (mouth hole) and hook-ah


We are introduced to 'Jaws' (appropriately) at the pyramids in Giza...cough, cough.

 The obelisk...penis of Osiris

Jaws opening of the mouth

Kiel (the actor playing Jaws) and his 'opening of the mouth' and  'keel' that also phonetically evokes a ship...recall Liparus' 'opening of the mouth'...microcosm and macrocosm.

I can't believe I found this...
In addition (to helping Adam), Kubrick's real-life stepdaughter (Katharina Kubrick) designed the dentures that Richard Kiel (Jaws) wore in the film! 



Moonraker (Egypt to the moon)
Just in case you have any doubt...

Jaws eats shark!

Just in case you still have a nagging doubt...Spielberg's 007 Jaws reference, from the autopsy of the tiger shark!

Robert Shaw...

The opening intro wormhole

ahnetjer maker hooks...to open the mouth/way/wormhole

 Alice...What time is it Mr Rabbit?

Donnie Darko (2000)
 What time is it Mr Rabbit?

 The rabbit and the wormhole/way...and at the cinema...wink, wink!

 The Fibbonnaci spiral is based on the mating patterns of rabbits.

 As Gretchen waits for the school bus, a Volkswagen Rabbit vehicle quickly passes in
front of her.

 VW Rabbit...in the hole

Twilight
A VW Rabbit features in the 'Twilight' series of films...

Twilight Zone (The Movie)
 The VW Rabbit also features in Dante's segment from Spielberg's/Landis' Twilight Zone 1983 
 Same make, model, clour and trim, but without the roof rack!

The woman in the above pic is Kathleen Quinlan...she would feature in Oliver Stone's Doors bipoic (which we've already seen) as a 'pagan witch' with the 'lizard snake king' and as Hank's wife in Howard's Apollo 13.

Kathleen made an appearance as Senator Michaels (2011) in the episode 'Alliances' from the sci-fi series Stargate Universe.  Her debut role would be Lucas' American Graffiti (1973) which starred fellow 'stargater' Harrison Ford, Richard 'Jaws opening of the mouth' Dreyfuss and Ron 'Apollo 13' Howard.

These VW Rabbit vehicles (in Europe) are generically known as VW Golf's...The game with the small ball (orb/moon) that finds the hole (rabbit hole/underworld)

 At midnight that evening, Donnie is called out of bed by a mysterious voice. He follows the voice to a local golf course, where a big talking rabbit named Frank tells him that the world will end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds.

 

 "The song that plays as Donnie is riding his bike home in the theatrical version is "The Killing Moon" by Echo & The Bunnymen.

 When Elizabeth Darko is sleeping on the recliner,
there is a stuffed rabbit next to her. As Donnie reaches for the car keys, there is a Polaroid   picture of him and his sister in Halloween costumes on the desk. Donnie is dressed as a rabbit. When Donnie is talking to his sister after his mom leaves near the end, a wooden bunny is seen on the table.    Frank, the rabbit, often appears near a water source. (taps/faucets/mains...the moon/pineal dew/water?)

Donnie (Alice) Through The Looking Glass


Dr Monnitoff

"Our high-energy particle accelerators don't have enough energy to even detect the phenomenon at that scale, much less do anything like holding a wormhole open."
Carl 'Contact/Cosmos/Wormhole' Sagan (more on that later)

 

The film takes place in 1988...Back To The Future required the car to go 88mph to time travel.

 Donnie mentions the DeLorean vehicle, which was used for time travel in the movie Back
To The Future.


 The climax of Donnie Darko occurs one week before the 1988 US presidential election.
George Herbert Walker Bush was elected on November 8, 1988 [11/08/88].

 88 & 8 pops up in many other instances. 
 28 days, 06 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds. If you add these numbers, the sum is 88.
  The red-eye flight that almost crashes is Flight 2806 which boards at Gate 42 at 12 AM.
 The movie was shot in 28 days.
 When Samantha asks when she can have kids, Donnie says: "Not until 8th grade." 
Donnie mentions to his therapist that his dog Callie died when he was 8.

The shot of the bike ride to Grandma Death's house is an homage to Steven Spielberg's
E.T., in which, Drew Barrymore also starred. 

 Elizabeth Darko's (Maggie Gyllenhaal) Halloween costume is a tribute to Vivian Darkbloom, a character in Stanley Kubrick's Lolita.   

Looking like Gyllenhaal/Darkbloom
 They (Gyllenhaal/Darkbloom) look exactly like Alice/Renee (cough, cough) from Lynch's Lost Highway too!

 Maggie Gyllenhaal would also star in Oliver Stone's World Trade Center...Stone's film would feature Nic Cage in the lead and he was formerly married to Patrica Arquette (see below).

 Patricia (Cage) Arquette!

 

Remember all the previous work I've done on 9/11, the WTC and the moon...and that we dealt with 'sidereal' moon orbits and their correlation with film/tv premiere dates and the moons position...
I found the following quite interesting!

 The alignment of sidereal moon orbits etc and certain releases etc
+1 -1 -1 +1....an 11-11 encode.

Frank says the world will end in "28 days 6 hours 42 minutes 12 seconds." That figure is not random: it comes from adding or subtracting 1 from each part of the figure 27d 7h 43m 11s, which is the precise length of one lunar month (by one of the less-used definitions - sidereal instead of the usual synodic).  

September 11th 2001
Earth (centre) Moon travels through Sirius (canis major)...red line to Orion/Osiris 
This is the roughly the moment when Flight 11 hits the North Tower @ 8:49 am (1:49pm UTC)

Above...image is looking down on the Earth and Moon orientated so that Orion in the direction of top of the image @ 8:49 am (1:49pm Universal Time Code)

Above...this image shows the position of the Moon at 8:49 am (1:49pm Universal Time Code), on 9-11-2001...it is directly above 'the shoulder of orion' Betelgeuse.

'Fear and Love open the doors'...to the black lodge.
When Jupiter & Saturn meet.

Combined

Donnie Darko
The theatircal version opens with The Killing Moon...

  The red-eye flight that almost crashes is Flight 2806 which boards at Gate 42 at 12 AM.
Again that's the 'sidereal' moon orbit correlation...that we linked to 9/11

Lost Darko and the airplane/number connection
Numbers (42) aircraft and similarities!
Darko numbers total 88
Lost numbers total 108

Knowing
The 911 drink ring stain

 Although this movie was filmed in 2000 and screened at the Sundance Film Festival in
January 2001, many images in the film are haunting reminders of the September 11, 2001
terrorist attacks on the United States of America.

  A Porsche 911 vehicle is parked in the Darko driveway. 
 
The jet engine that falls in Donnie's bedroom tears through the American flag he has on his ceiling.


 The collapsing building motif via Graham Greene(man)...and 'creation out of destruction' aspect.

Samantha Darko..."strange days indeed, most peculiar mama"
 Alice in Wonderland (alice/rabbit hole, what time is it?) The (Elements of ) Orion aspect and Mo(o)nkey's...the rabbit/lepus (via Alice) next to Orion, as it is in the sky!

Elements of Orion

The rabbit (via Alice and the guy in the rabbit costume, plus countless other references),
 Donnie as Osiris (the dying god, Donnie is dead) and he wealds an axe, like Orion/Osiris (the hunter) is often related with!

 The dog 'Mongrel' (canis major) with Orion's (Osiris) club in it's hand and Orion's axe in it's head!
Hence a 'mongrel'...a composite of Orion and Canis Major...it could be a bull-dog, adding apis/taurus to the mix.

Now (dog above) it looks like an allusion to the 'horn coming out of the head' (pineal gland) splitting consciousness. 

As above, so below
The great dog (sirius/canis major) followed by....

 Samantha Darko writes a story entitled "The Last Unicorn" about a unicorn named Ariel. 
 Ariel as in transmitter/receiver (geddit?) the protrouding horn/3rd eye! This is alo possibly a nod to Ridley Scott's Blade Runner: The Director's Cut.  Samantha Darko is holding a stuffed toy unicorn at the airport. In another scene, as she is jumping on a trampoline, she is wearing a shirt with a unicorn on it.


 
The unicorn...on the larger map!  That's all lower 4 constellations taken care of!
The 'twinning' of the sibling Gyllenhaal's (Jake/Maggie, although they're not actual twins) could perhaps relate to the twins/gemini.

So it makes absolute sense for Jake Gyllenhaal to star in this subsequent release:
 "When I said that I am a 'star'...I meant it literally!"

A celestial 'quid pro quo'...Donnie Darko
 In the subsequent director's cut, a number of musical choices are changed. In the film's opening, "The Killing Moon" by Echo & the Bunnymen is replaced by "Never Tear Us Apart" by INXS. "The Killing Moon" later replaces "Under The Milky Way" by The Church during the party scene. "Under The Milky Way" can be heard in the car scene with Donnie and his father, played on the radio.


S Darko...The Empress III (tarot)
The 10 sphere stations of kabbalah...the keys
Ceres (empress)...the CR....Mpress?
  
Darko
Jake Gyllenhaal who starred in Donnie Darko is the son of Stephen Gyllenhaal and he synchronistically directed an episode of Lynch's Twin Peaks...season 2 #20 'The Path to the Black Lodge'. 

We saw the reference just a while back, Briggs and the 'fear and love' quote from the S2 #21 episode...I'll mention that in more detail very soon.


Darko's Evil Peaks
 Sam Raimi's Evil Dead is referenced via 'cellar door' (Drew 'ET' Barrymore) and the cinema theatre...Jake Gyllenhall's (Donnie) father Stephen will direct Twin Peaks eps  #20 (season2) that featured Ted Raimi as Rusty Tomasky...Ted is Sam's younger brother.  Ted was recently in Oz : The Great & Powerful...for the rainbow and 42 motif.  The first image from epsidoe #20 is Ted Raimi's face in close-up...dead inside the pawn chess piece.

Log Lady Intro...#20
There are clues everywhere, all around us. But the puzzle maker is clever. The clues, although surrounding us, are somehow mistaken for something else. And the something else, the wrong interpretation of the clues, we call our world. Our world is a magical smoke screen.

The Peaks episode #20 features Earles 'cabin in the woods'
The Evil Dead...'cabin in the woods'

 Donnie Darko watching 'the cabin in the woods' (Evil Dead in cinema)

 A recent addition to the thematic


Ammit...devourer of hearts/souls

Henri-etta....Henry Eater/Ate Her (Soul)
 In Evil Dead 2...the role of Ammit will be played by Ted 'Twin Peaks' Raimi...yes him again!

Cabin In The Woods (Twin Peaks)

The Tree of Life (white lodge) - The Tree of Death (black lodge)
Malkuth is a portal...
Tree of life = sephiroth   tree of death = qliphoth

Two symbols combined....
Portal/Rabbit Hole...at Glaston-bury Grove

A hole...worm/rabbit hole
Glastonbury grove, groves are sacred to druids and there is an Egyptian connection too!  
The 12 sycamores and the 12 zodiacal signs.


According to the Book of Dead, twin sycamores (Twin Peaks) stood at the eastern gate of heaven from which the sun god Re emerged each morning. The sycamore was also regarded as a manifestation of the goddesses Nut, Isis, and especially of Hathor, who was given the epithet Lady of the Sycamore. Sycamores were often planted near tombs, and burial in coffins made of sycamore wood returned the dead person to the womb of the mother tree goddess. 

Isis as the sycamore
left, Mural...Isis, who appears in the holy sycamore tree. Workmen's Tombs (13th BCE), Deir el-Medina, Egypt. right, Horus 'suckling' Isis who is manifested as a Sycamore.


Sheriff Harry S. Truman: There's a sort of evil out there. Something very, very strange in these old woods. Call it what you want. A darkness, a presence. It takes many forms but... its been out there for as long as anyone can remember and we've always been here to fight it.

 Evil Dead 1981
 You might recall the 'tree rape' scene from Raimi's Evil Dead...re-done for the re-make.

Evil Dead (remake)
I used pics from the remake, because decent pics from the original are hard to find!


Evil Dead 1981
 "As above...so below"

The very next one is...S2, #21 (episode 28)
Twin Peaks season 2 episode #21 'Miss Twin Peaks' 


number 21

This 21 episode features... 
Don 'Major Blue Book Briggs & Stargate (wormhole) SGC' Davis
 
Don S Davis...who was always one of my favourite characters in the show.
He probably made it through the black lodge and defeated the abyss! 

 
 The dweller on the threshold....Da'ath

 Briggs vanishes after a hooded man appears from the ether...the shadow self?

Choronzon the 'demon of the abyss'...the 'dweller on the threshold of da'ath' (aka the shadow self)
 Briggs marked with the Choronzon symbol...perhaps denoting that he defeated his shadow self!
Victory over da'ath/the abyss

Briggs in the White Lodge?

recall Darko...
 

The Shining (21) 'navajo' wrap in episode 21 and Briggs' quote 'fear & love'
Back in Twin Peaks after disappearing into the ether...
Briggs: "Judy Garland?" (Oz meme) 

In the previous episode #20, Earle refers to Briggs in this manner:
 "Polish up that bald nub of his and see what shines."

Twin Peaks
 A gateway/portal/rabbit-wormhole

Yes another one...connected  to the Egyptian Sycamore (Under The Sycamore tree)
 Earle takes Hathor/Isis Graham (Heather Graham)...under the sycamore tree.

Hathor

 "Since Isis was paired with Horus, and Horus was identified with Ra, Isis began to be merged with Hathor as Isis-Hathor. By merging with Hathor, Isis became the mother of Horus, as well as his wife. Eventually the mother role displaced the role of spouse. Thus, the role of spouse to Isis was open and in the Heliopolis pantheon, Isis became the wife of Osiris and the mother of Horus/Ra. This reconciliation of themes led to the evolution of the myth of Isis and Osiris."

From Isis & Horus (hawk) to Hawk...Native American

Deputy Tommy 'Hawk' Hill: My people believe that the White Lodge is a place where the spirits that rule man and nature reside. There is also a legend of a place called the Black Lodge. The shadow self of the White Lodge. Legend says that every spirit must pass through there on the way to perfection. There, you will meet your own shadow self. My people call it The Dweller on the Threshold.(TDOTT)




Dweller on the threshold?


Special Agent Dale Cooper: Dweller on the Threshold?

Deputy Tommy 'Hawk' Hill: But it is said that if you confront the Black Lodge with imperfect courage, it will utterly annihilate your soul.



Fear & Love open the doors...to the black lodge

Rabbits - Twin Peaks

Lynch's  Rabbits

  A recurring element is the existence of a man in a green coat. (green man)
 After the door closes, Jack says it was the man in the green coat.

In some episodes, mysterious events take place, including the appearance of a burning hole in the wall (wormhole?)

The film concludes with the rabbits huddled together on the couch and Jane saying "I wonder who I will be," suggesting reincarnation. Fans have speculated that the film is about the arrival in Purgatory of souls who have sinned, and their waiting to be reincarnated.

Reincarnated..."no nothing ever dies"
 
Here's Alien's Cain/Hurt in the Elephant Man, also by Lynch (who is now a thematic regular)
Merrick has lost his 'worm-like' trunk that forms above the mouth.
 
At the end of this clip Merrick will have his own journey to the stars/wormhole and his 'forever' moment (nothing ever dies).  Note the music used.


From 05m 28s onwards...

Note the music used.

Osiris, Horus & Set...Elias, Chris & Barnes.
Let battle commence...

 Barnes is Set...to Elias' Osiris...and the child of those two (as he says it) is Chris (Christopher/Christed/Charlie Sheen)

Chris (Sheen) : "The war is over for me now, but it will always be there, for the rest of my days, as I'm sure Elias will be, fighting with Barnes for what Rhah (Ra/Re) called possession of my soul (ba). There are times since... I've felt like the child born of those two fathers."

 (Ra, the Sun God symbolized the creation of every living soul. He's talking about Chris' soul and the battle between 'set' & 'osiris' for it!  Set was depicted standing on the prow of Ra's night barque spearing Apep in the form of a serpent)

"I've felt like the child born of those two fathers."
Which is the Egyptian trinity mythos in a nutshell.  The virgin birth from Isis...Barnes is Set, murders Elias, who is Osiris and the eventual offspring, via Isis, is Horus...Chris(Christed)/Sheen.

Horus (Sheen) then goes on to avenge the death of Osiris (Defoe) by battling with Set (Barnes)....who he subsequently kills...completing the entire myth cycle!!!

Just prior to the death of Set (Barnes) by Horus (Sheen) there is a fire fight and most of the platoon are blown into unconsciousness.  When Horus (Chris) awakes the first thing he sees is...

 "The deer is considered by some Christians to be a symbol of Christ."

The death of Osiris (Elias) is avenged by Horus (Chris)...Set (Barnes) lies dead.

Now just to really convince any doubters of the filmakers intent...we have this scene from earlier.

A re-enactment of Set (Barnes) 'gouging' Horus' (Chris) left eye...
The 'eye' that Horus lost in his battle against Set.

Rhah/Ra...with the staff of Ra in one hand.



Ra/Rhah Egyptian Sun God...he is often seen on the 'solar barque'.

And to further underline the point that we dealing with all things Egyptian...we have the following.


From a setting sun into the 'underworld'...

 Osiris (green man)/Jesus in the 'underworld'...he'll play the 'dying god'

Descent into the 'underworld' with the 'King' and Osiris/Elias


Rhah: What you doing in the underworld, Taylor?   
(Taylor/Horus & Rhah/Ra in the Egyptian underworld!)
King: Well, this here ain't Taylor. Taylor been shot. This man here is Chris(t). He been resurrected.
 (The King describes the resurrection of Christ/Osiris, immediately followed with cut to Elias, who is the Christ/Osiris and he'll be the 'dying god' later)


Oliver Stone's sequel...  
 

 Recall the 'worm' swallowing with Willem earlier...



If you've seen both 'The Fly' and 'Born on the 4th July' you might notice that actor John Getz appears in both...Stathis Borins (The Fly) and a Marine Corps Major (Born 4th July).

Getz...How you doing?

In The Fly there is a scene that plays like 'the opening of the mouth/wormhole' and John '4th July/Eat The Worm' Getz is present when it happens!

Getz & Davis...Opening of the mouth/wormhole
A wormhole allusion...Cronenberg is actually playing the doctor.
 A little later...Cronenberg will crop up again, in relation to this thematic.

1988 Tim Burton's
Beetlejuice...Geena Davis, again!

Alec 'Working WTC Isis Girl' Baldwin & Geena 'The Fly' Davis
 The sandworm...and Opening of the Mouth of the serpent/wormhole

At the film's climax...Geena 'wormhole' Davis will 'ride the sandworm' (snake) 
just like Paul did in Lynch's Dune!

 The afterlife...and the opening of the mouth, serpent-wormhole

Recall Dune and the giant sand worms and the wormhole(s)...


Dune and the literal BEETLEJUICE...'thalamus-juicing'

 The 'crushed beetle' in...The Shining

"And we all shine on" Lennon


The 'crushed Beatle'...outside the Dakota, where he was shot dead in 1980 the same year The Shining was released 1980...King got the book title from Lennon's Instant 'we all shine on' Karma!

Beetlejuice...
The juice of the sapho beetle (which Dourif drinks) leads to enhanced brain power...
"It is by the juice of sapho that thoughts acquire speed"



 Opening of the mouth...literally

Opening of the mouth, spikey beetle(juice) enters the mouth/head/brain, recall thalamus pic above!
At Dante's (terraces,steps,ladders etc) Whorehouse Inferno, the beast and the whore of revelation...just as Beetlejuice enters Dante's (Devilish Inferno) 'mouth' we cut to this following scene...in the afterlife!


Sylvia Sidney as Juno/Aunt Marion (Omen2) in the afterlife and shown immediately on the back of a 'devilish' reference...she acts as a caseworker to the newly deceased Maitland's (Baldwin & Davis)

In the film she tells a team of footballers that they didn't survive a plane crash (echoes of Darko, Lost, Knowing etc)

On another 'devilish' note...Jeffrey Jones will also appear in Beetlejuice (Deetz) and he appeared in Stay '666' Tuned and was also taken into the afterlife, as Eddie Barzoon in Devil's Advocate!

Burton's Alice & Rabbit

The shoulder of Orion
The pyramid shafts aligning the Queen (Isis) with Sirius and the King (Osiris) with Orion's belt...aka We 3 Kings of Orion Star

  1. The doll/tricycle in Saw was an allusion to Dario Argento's Deep Red, another very symbolic film you should look into.

  2. You should really look more into S.Darko. It contains lots of symbols. Another movie you should into is Apollo 18. Keep doing what your doing:).

  3. In the Matrix when Neo is unplugging, he opens his mouth wide and the camera enters his mouth and descends down his throat. Also in Matrix II, the Oracle asks Neo to open his mouth and say "ahh".

    1. Hey Linus...I'd thought about the metallic mouth one, but it slipped my mind...didn't know of the oracle one though...cheers, have now factored some of that in...thanks.

  4. yeah the matrix thing goes along with the metal references too. captured that metallic taste you get in your mouth and the head cocking back mouth open upon awakening. plus the looking into the mirror thing. I always loved the god reaching out to adam through the third eye. The shining maze always looked like those classic cross mandala's, other versions are more like chrysanthemum's, which is the opening you break through to activate ego death and the seemingly infinite afterlife people talk about with DMT. I guess your mind ages but your body doesn't and the first ones who did this must have come to think of themselves as gods? masters of their and planet earths destiny. passed down the tradition.

    1. Hi, have updated some Matrix elements now. All good stuff and food for thought...I'll consider some of what you said...thanks for the comment.

    2. thanks i love your blog. have looked at it for a long time but never commented. Also atlas is the first cervical vertebra of the spine. Literally holding up your brain/world. not sure if it's been mentioned

    3. Hey Anon...
      Your 'atlas' reference has been quite a revelation and one that I hadn't thought about (I've done the spine, but not individual vertebrae), until you suggested it. I have since updated to include it in the Contact part of the post...many thanks. Of major interest is that 'the atlas' vertebrae is the one that connects to the head. I noticed in Platoon (gun/wormhole etc) that Chris(t) after inhalng...does say "I've got no pain in my neck anymore"...which is surely another veiled reference! It may well be the 'location' where NEO (matrix) has his 'hole' on the back of his head, just above the neck.

      Feel free to hit me up with anymore suggestions...thanks again.

    1. Ah yes...The 'winged' Beatle Macca...his "Live (Tarot) And Let Die" 007 piece...connects to Yaphet 'Alien mouth-opener' Kotto (he forces the spoon/peseshkaf spoon blade into Kane's mouth, wink) who played Mr Big/Kananga, in the film of the same name...there was also a croc-ammit motif and a big 'soul' motif 'Fillet of Soul' and a big heart reference via the lovers (gemini), serpent via snakes etc etc. Thanks for the comment and link.

    In Memphis (cough, cough) at the airport...Lecter has only been there a few minutes and he's already 'symbolically' referenced the goddess!

    1. Macca might as well turn up to the venue in a classic VW Beatle (khepra)...enter the stage riding a bull (Apis) with a 'Sun King' (Osiris) intro, then open the show proper with his 'universal virgin themed' (Isis) track Lady Madonna. :-) He'll certainly feel at home, in one of his major 'symbolic' cities...thanks for the heads-up.

  8. Well, he does promise a NEW show.

  9. At the climax of Dune the camera moves onto Paul's right eye (sun) and then left eye (moon)...the camera zooms into his left eye (moon) and then as a result Paul magically creates rain...the moon & water connection doesn't need an explanation, we're all aware of its effects on the waters of the oceans etc.

    exactly

    1. Thanks for the heads up. I can't even go in the sunlight (haven't be able to for about 4-5 years) I literally burn after a few minutes and it is very frustrating indeed...it happens even in spring sunshine!!! I even have problems with 'sweat' causing my skin to blister etc which is a nightmare, because I have to cover-up anyway to avoid the sunlight, which causes me to sweat...arrggghh!!!! The 'sweat' issue has also caused me to limit my exercise routines. I used to be able to tan easily and without burning etc...not anymore! I long to be able to sit in the sunshine without a care in the world...now I'm more likely to hide from it, the pain and discomfort are too much to bear!

    1. Interesting little connection, thanks...as an aside, Brazil (the neigbouring country) actually has 'Sirius' as one of the stars in its national flag...Re: Aires, gives us aries/ram overlaps too. I wonder if "Holy Mary of the Fair Winds" could translate as "Holy Isis of the Four Winds"? Egyptian mythology...the north wind 'ram/bull', east wind 'hawk'(sun god rises in the east), south wind 'lion' and west wind 'serpent'. Frequently all four winds have the shape or head of a 'ram' (hermes) as an allusion to the word bai (soul breath). Brazil also have the largest statue of Osiris Slain (the cross) in the entire world.

      Thanks for the comment, appreciate it...sorry for the long delay in responding.
