Bliss Logo Re-Design BC WIP

Bliss Logo Re-Design BC WIP

I have been working hard on the marketing materials for Bliss and I’m excited with the progress we’ve done so far. I am posting these updates on my personal blog because I want to post finished pieces on K Glyphics.

A few weeks ago, we finalized the Bliss re-design logo and now we’re working on the business cards.

Bliss-woboxThe concept behind this logo was found through inspiration from Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs of the lotus flower. The flower motif is important to Bliss, as when the woman go through this program, they blossom from a rough point in their lives overcoming violence into an empowered woman who has honed skills.

The colors were also inspired by the Ancient Egyptian palette. We originally thought orange was a too corporate feeling, but chose as shade of orange that was a bit subdued to match the earth vibe of the brand’s image.


The logo initially started with a dozen or so sketches and then photographed and uploaded. The sketch to the right was the last one we worked on before it was outlined in Illustrator and colored in in photoshop. I find it easier to do color effects in photoshop than in Illustrator so it was just personal preference on that choice.

1463914_642331162485875_1415535763_nWe were pleased with the outcome of the logo and like the complexity of the logo as it can be broken down into different parts to be used in future aspects of the brand, so the rest of the branding image can have some flexibility.  We also adored the final shape of the logo as it was reminiscent of the old logo, but a more updated – fresh look.

We’re working on finalizing the business card and perhaps hope to have it completed in the coming week.

11143708_2906519222351_499207424530265154_o The business card I had been struggling with since I haven’t done a non-standard size before. I am currently working on perfecting the piece, making sure every detail is just right! When you’re in this field, there are certain details that you pick up as a graphic designer that most people wouldn’t even consider but makes a world of a difference. We’re considering a laser-cut cover for example, or the inside cover should match up with the right fold flap… those things.

Employment Mandala

I designed an employment mandala to use in my meditative work to encourage and channel these energies. I seriously need all the encouragement/help I can get. Why not ask the energies to help me out too?

I followed the traditional way to create a mandala using this tutorial and included symbols from the 36 tattvas such as, “Moving” and “Desire”. I included symbols to represent moving, as well as my field (CMYK) and added the skyline from the city I want to work. Let’s see if it does something!

Changing Matter through Vibration

I was reading The Source Field Investigations by David Wilcock this week and I came across a few things that peaked my interest. I was reading about changing the physical appearance of matter through Magnetic Atoms. One experiment looked very promising as it was done by an ‘ordinary’ guy like you and me. I’m trying to see what art project I can steam from this. Process seems simple enough but I have to really look into it. From the research article it says that Pier Luigi Ighina simply created an electromagnetic field in the magnetic atoms in the piece of matter would take on the vibratory rate of the electromagnetic field and he could easily change it.

The various colours and shapes of matter are due to alterations in the vibration of the atoms that compose it. For example, if a flower has a basic atomic pulsation of 1000, and its external atoms get in touch with other atoms like those of light, heat, gas, etc. the latter change the former’s vibration to 1000.01, 1000.02 which correspond to the colours and shape of the matter. Upon this discovery he made a scale of alterations which showed him that when he would reach a pulsation of 1001, the matter would transform. He classified different categories of atoms: reproductive atoms, motionless atoms, non reproductive atoms, semi reproductive atoms, permanent reproductive atoms, and so on. source

I think his science is “Key” to understanding some of the many ancient philosophical teachings that have been given to us. For example sacred geometry is simply geometry that has taken on vibration. Vibration here is also key in the creation of sacred geometry. Reality is just a prism of shape and color, and if we are able to change the physical appearance of matter just by adjusting its vibratory rate, then this really backs up that reality is an illusion.

Next Esoteric Project: Visualizing Sound

I wanted to do a cymatics setup for awhile now. I was gonna try to do one for my self-portrait in Intro to Photography and use a song I wrote so I could visualize the notes. But I didn’t have time and ended up doing something much simpler but turned out very well in the end. Coupled with this project I also wanted to work with the sonoluminescence experiment which turns sound into light. Maybe something interesting will out out of these. Both projects are about visualizing sound in its inefficiency.

Place in Space

 I was reading one of my favorite alchemical resources and found this transcription. I have fallen in love with it. Very in line with what I’m interested in. :)
Place in Space
Transcribed by Adam McLean from MS. Sloane 3797, folios 3-5.

Place in Space
the residence of Motion,
or the Secret Mystery of Nature’s progress,
being an Elucidation of the Blessed Trinity.
Father – Son – and Holy Ghost.
Space – Place – and Motion.

Space, Place, Father & Son
are inseparable fixed & immoveable.

Motion ye Holy Ghost
Is that which brings all things to the Blessed determination
of the Dei, as in the Gloria Patri, Filii & Spiriti Sancti, etc.

Space is the Circle of Created World
Space is the Place wherein this Engine’s rolled
As Place a Center circled in by Space
So Space ye Circle is of place’s place
Place is a Center yet Exchange of Place
The Lineal motion is to Space’s Space
Place in it Self is ever fixed and still
Which doth ye Vacant Space of Spaces fill
Space can not Move because it all Contains
Yet Space is Motion, place where Power reigns
Nor Space nor Place do ever Stir nor Move
Yet place in Space is restless Motions Grove
Great is the Magic of this motion’s race
Motion in Space doth pass from place to place
Thus Motion caught in all including Space
Standing in centers moved to Circle’s place
Motion is that which runs the world about
Yet it a place is never found without
Place it is Still from Motion never free
Move and not move how can it ever be.
This riddle placed in Space of mental motion
Is plane to sense without erratic notion
Motion’s confined to various centriq place
Never to pass ye boundless bounds of Space
Thus each beginning doth its end contain
And End once made it must begin again
For what was done by one Creating Word
Must by this Three in one be understood
If any ask how this could ever be done
Tell them the word is Father, Ghost and Son
Before that time was made Creatural
God in himself was the great all in all
But to extend the virtue of his power
Of nothing all things made for his one bower
Thus was the great abyssive might
Formed into Creature, whence produced was Light
This light to Nature joined both firmly stood
As primo genitors and to beings food
The product of this all including one
In Triple Creature most divinely shown
Prangeth it self by measure of formation
To be the being’s being of Creation
Thus were the heavens and the Earth begot
Both out of darkness unto Light was brought
From whence was made twixt one and t’other
Father, & Mother, Sister, & Brother
Four in number as the Elements are
Conjointly work to procreate their par
Fire is the Father, and the Mother is air
Brother and Sister, Earth and Water, are
These in their number weight and Measure
Make of this world the hidden treasure
Joined them thro light let them unite together
That they may live in love and be for Ever
So is the Quatrant four in one
The Matter Form and Essence of our Stone.

Kirlian Photography

For my Alternative Photography class I am doing Kirlian Photography which is essentially photograms made with electricity instead of the nuclear energy of the sun. The above is my absolutely favorite photo of the bunch that I did recently. The effect really should be done in color on a Polaroid but those are expensive and hard to find, so I used what I had which was traditional black and white. While at my station one day I realized that photograms are really no different than arranging text and images in a photoshop document. Instead of using text and images I am using life and light to design an image.

Brain Coherence

So while I was researching for next project; creating 5 book covers due next wednesday. I’m doing a book cover based on Design Aesthetic Philosophy (or design philosophy, basically what I write about).  I came across a philosopher whom I haven’t heard of; Prof. Arnold Keyserling. He was all about brain coherence and the grammar of the brain. To me, Graphic Design is thinking made visual… that’s the definition I go by (while I realize GD has many definitions this is one I found that is most appropriate). I found his use of the enneagram; the nine-pointed star very interesting. 

Keyserling discovered that the structure of our brain molds our speech, and our speech in turn shapes our mind.  He found that the basic patterns of our mind and coherence are tied to language, and all are tied to the Enneagram and The Wheel.  The essential criteria of our mind can be reduced to the three space-like realms of language combined with the four time-like functions.   These are the basic components of The Wheel.

the lemniscate

I was meditating on the infinity symbol (the lemniscate) today and realized it may be a symbol for binary star system…

Solar Analema. The position of the sun.


All the wisdom of the ages is self-contained within the fundamental tenets of astrological practice. The study of Hermetic literature reveals the Universal Laws and through a study of symbolism, numerology and geometry one can begin to see the pattern running through all of creation.

As an astrologer I never dismiss coincidences. They are messages arriving via the unconscious. They are invisible threads that are trying to help us determine natures laws, patterns and harmony. Recently I have had a run of synchronicities and I’m quite baffled as to where they may be leading. I would like to discuss here how these ‘coincidences’ might fit together – although I freely admit it would take a much greater mind than I possess to make any practical sense of what is being brought to my door.

Firstly let me tell you that from a young age I have doodled spirals and the symbol for infinity and pondered on the meaning of them. Recently I read that the infinity symbol (above) is of unknown origin. This came to my notice within days of seeing the film Zeitgeist and writing about it in my previous post.

Those of you who have yet to see this not-for- profit movie may at this point like to read my previous post and perhaps then go on to view Part One of the movie*. Having done so (and ensure you have a comfortable seat because it is 20 minutes of compelling viewing) please contemplate the next image on this page, that ‘coincidentally’ also came to my attention this week.

This is an image known as theAnalemma – a time lapse photograph of the annual passage of the Sun over Earth – rising to its highest declination North and then moving on down to its lowest declination South (from the Equator) as seen from a static position on Earth. In other words this is a visual depiction of the path of the Sun and the Solstice points. The curvature shows the Solstices – one of which we meet now 20th thru 23rd December 2007 as the Sun appears to stand still at 23.26 degrees of Southern declination. The other turning point occurs at the Summer Solstice in June.

It is important to know however that the visual turning point (Zeitgeist viewers take note) occurs on 25th December – Christmas Day. This is the date that day length visibly starts to change. To the ancients, who carefully tracked the daily position of any visible planet – but most especially the life-giving Sun – this symbol of time would surely have been noted. I’m sure archaeologists will have found regular occurrences of its appearance on cave walls and wood carvings as well as in Temples and other record and time-keeping artifacts. To my eyes it seems obvious that this is where the symbol for infinity must have arisen – infinity being a never ending factor (loop) of time and space.

It also seems clear to me that there would be some correspondence on Earth to this heavenly shape which looks like a figure 8 because the Sun was held in such reverence and worshipped as a God.

Obviously we know of the lines of the Tropics which match the solstices but surely our ancestors would have paid these latitudes and this symbol very special attention.

Let’s have a recap on ‘The Tropics’……The highest declination North of the Sun marks what we call the Tropic of Cancer around the Earth’s sphere. The opposite declination marks the Tropic of Capricorn. If your astronomy and geography is not up to scratch, imagine holding a pen to a ball about halfway up from its midline and then turning the ball to trace a line around its circumference. The pen point would represent the Sun’s position on the days it reaches its highest declination North and the ball would be the Earth. The same can be repeated for the other Tropic.

If you then stuck a map around the ball and squashed it out flat you would get a line from left to right. Here we can see this on a flat map of the globe. The line is always at 23 degrees and 26 minutes of latitude North and South, matching the Sun’s highest declination at the Solstices. Therefore this red line is effectively the ‘line of Christmas’ projected onto the turning globe and is known as The Tropic of Capricorn

It would indeed be fascinating to see what Temples and artifacts lie in locations at this exact latitude (and those of the Tropic of Cancer The line of Easter.

The proper name for the infinity symbol is known as the Lemniscus. How intriguing then that in anatomy this term is used for:
A bundle of nerve fibers ascending from sensory nuclei in the spinal cord and the rhombencephalon to the thalamus’. This is the part of the body which amongst other things senses vibration.

In mathematics it refers to several things most well known being theLemniscate of Bernoulli from the family of Cassini Curves, and theLemniscate of Gerono and you might like to meditate on this applet hereInterestingly the philosophers Goethe and Steiner both lectured extensively on the properties of the Lemniscate

Those of you who are less of a ‘connect-the-dots’ and ‘no coincidences’ type mind may have completely lost me now. For others all this information will be resonating strongly. What is the link between the sign in the heavens of the path of the Sun and its correspondence to terrestrial life and the mysteries of our existence? Let’s continue to look. The infinity sign resembles the number 8. This number has always held occult significance. It relates to the sign of Scorpio, it is the number of pathways in the Buddhist faith, it is the atomic number of oxygen and in physics is known as a magic number ……

Surfing around the Internet I found this:

The number 8 represents infinity. It has the profile of the Mobius strip. In fact the Mobius strip — a distorted one — is a circle – The symbol of completion and wholeness. However the figure 8 contains 2 circles therefore 8 represents a completion, like the circle, but on a new level, or another octaves, an end and a beginning. The number of days in a week is 7, but the 8th day, say a Monday, is the beginning of a new week. In nature every 8th wave arriving at the the sea shore is bigger than the rest. In the same way, in music, the 8th note is another octave.

8 hertz, very interestingly, is the brainwave frequency healers and mystics most tune into. Furthermore, 8 hertz isSchumann’s Resonance~the frequency of earth (earth vibration). Humans cannot survive without it. Astronauts need a 8 htz generator to maintain health. Life depends on that frequency, otherwise we would not buzz. It’s a common alpha frequency meditators frequency slip into for so called ‘expanded consciousness’ .

8 also ties in closely with DNA groupings 8×8=64. 8×8=64 squares of the I-ching, and the 8×8=64 squares of a chess board (that represent the Universe.)

This continues to illicit synchronous connections because we have already seen that in anatomy the Lemnisci is the seat of vibration. Additionally, before finding this, I had never heard of a Mobius Strip but upon looking it up I see that it has correlations to the shape of interlocking DNA strands.

‘Curiouser and curiouser’ said Alice in Wonderland. Are the secrets of life and time locked up in the figure 8? Certainly without our Sun tracing this shape, life as we know it would not exist.

It is also possible that linear time was not even a concept familiar to our very ancient ancestors in the way we would automatically presume. All that they were probably aware of was cyclical time. The constant cycles of nature and the heavens.

As Pluto moves into Capricorn, our understanding of the nature of time is set to be transformed. I recently said that I believe this will come about as a result of the Particle Accelerator tests at Cern (see my previous post) I was therefore fascinated to find repeated references on the Internet to the Lemniscate, Enrico Fermi and methods of splitting the atom!

Whilst Physicists come at the problem from their own perspectiveAstrologers have always known that Science and Spirituality are closer than they have ever been and all ‘roads’ are leading to the same knowledge, albeit via a different route.

Nature laws and cycles, documented in esoteric and alchemical literature, contain the key that will one day unlock to the door of the temple of knowledge and reveal the mysteries of life. In my next post I will look at the some more symbols associated with the Sun/Earth correspondences.

The Unfolding Technology of Crop Circles


“For centuries on end [science] has patted itself on the back every twenty or thirty years for having reached the pinnacle of scientific inquiry and in this arrogant pose has passed its findings on to its students and successors.”

Joachim-Ernst Berendt- The World Is Sound, Nada Brahma: Music and the Landscape of Consciousness

Always the envelope stretches: Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, Hermann Minkowski’s space-time equations, and David Bohm’s multi-dimensional Universe- ideas that changed the ‘irrefutable facts’ of science, and at the same time acknowledged these theories as integral to Hinduism and Buddhism philosophy thousands of years before.

Freddy Silva- Secrets In The Fields: The Science And Mysticism of Crop Circles (pre-publishing)

In 1988, during the days when crop circles were only sporadically mentioned in the local press, a channeler named Isabelle Kingston was given a series of communications from a group consciousness called The Watchers. These ascended masters were responsible for guiding humanity through its most difficult moments; references to them exist in ancient Egypt as the Neteru, the Shining Ones.

Among many predictions The Watchers gave were of signs in the fields that would shortly be manifesting around Europe’s biggest man-made ‘pyramid’ Silbury Hill (hill of the Shining Beings). These signs would help humanity gain awareness of its greater responsibility in the Universe; these signs would also be carrying codes of energy for imprinting the Earth, and cleansing the ancient sites which lay upon an invisible electromagnetic (EM) grid around the world. Twenty years later, this prophesy has certainly taken form in the crop circles, whose EM fingerprints are now known to charge the energy grid of ancient nearby sites, and interact with the biophysical rhythms of people who enter them.

But one further prophesy concerned the gradual deciphering of the glyphs, through which new technology could be built to help humanity. This was to be achieved by 2007. And it appears that some progress is now being made as we draw nearer this date.

Before I approach this subject let me just summarize how crop circles come about: the growing evidence suggests these magnificent shapes are created by tubes of light (electromagnetism) which contain an acoustic device (sound, the material carrier of light); an anti-gravitational aspect is also involved which alters the local magnetic field and leaves behind a host of physical and non-physical fingerprints. Encoded within these tubes of light are harmonic frequencies which manifest, through spiral rotation, as geometric shapes in plants. Such geometric shapes are essentially eddies of energy which carry a specific action, and by constructing an appropriate geometric shape upon a strategic location of the Earth’s magnetic grid, one can manipulate not only the local magnetic field but also the entire grid. One practitioner of this ‘art’ was John Dee, philosopher, alchemist, and appointee to the court of Elizabeth I of England, who succeeded in dissipating the energy of an invading Spanish armada by building a nine-pointed structure at a strategic energy location on the Isles of Scilly.

The 3-D application of geometry also influences the functions taking place within it: The pyramid shape is scientifically proven to affect brainwave patterns and crystalline structures, to the point that it mummifies dead tissue, sharpens blunt razor blades, and enhances the micro-organisms in milk and yoghurt; spherical shapes, on the other hand, heal wounds more rapidly; and trapezoidal hospital wards improve the conditions of schizophrenics. Therefore, to deny the effects crop circles have upon their visitors and the landscape is to grossly underestimate their purpose.

Consciousness, too, is a form of EM energy, and plenty of evidence exists to suggest that focused thought (with intent) can achieve extraordinary things; the Eastern bloc countries, in particular, have experienced with PSI for much of the 20th Century, to the point where it was often used in the Russian space programme.

Two people who have already started to look at the technological information encoded in crop circles and how it interacts with consciousness are authors David Myers and David Percy. In their 811-page book Two Thirds – A History of Our Galaxy (Aulis, 1993), they provide stunning evidence of a number of crop glyphs encoding technology far beyond the present accepted boundaries of physics, including energy transdimensioning, energy conducting, an energy converter, and components of a gravitron drive and a computer; two key pictograms, at West Kennett and Alton Priors, contain information relating to three different speeds of light; others relate to consciousness-driven spinning disk technology. Needless to say, a paragraph on this ground-breaking book cannot do it justice, and I reference this work for the sake of those who wish to see another aspect of the ‘bigger picture’ now manifesting from the study of crop circles.

Another example of this ‘energy machine’ evolving from crop circles is currently being studied in Oklahoma. In 1991, Chris Hardeman was watching a televised image of the Barbury Castle tetrahedron, a design that haunted him ever since. “While taking a course on modern physics at the University of Central Oklahoma it became apparent that electromagnetic radiation and gravitation are correlated. It was then that I remembered the Barbury design and realized the cavities of the Barbury crop circle could be microwave resonators, and the design was in fact a machine – an electromagnetic device with the ability to accumulate a huge resonating standing wave field.” Hardeman then learned of the work of Canadian John Hutchinson, who, by using Tesla coils to generate standing-wave patterns in free space, has succeeded in levitating objects up to the weight of a cannon ball (see John Hutchison- “The Hutchison Effect”, Electric Spacecraft Journal, No.4 (Oct/Nov/Dec 1991), Leicester, NC 28748)

Armed with this knowledge Hardeman built a six foot replica of the Barbury Castle tetrahedron; electromagnetic radiation was administered to the unit via a magnetron. Within three seconds of switching on the power, the unit visibly levitated, an effect replicated in ten consecutive test runs. Clearly, a gravity shielding effect was taking place. “It could accumulate a huge resonant standing-wave field, just the sort of thing Hutchinson was doing, and getting gravity nullification and inversion.” After these tests, Hardeman learned of the Brazilian physicist Professor Fran de Aquino, who has written several papers on the effects of electromagnetism on gravity; following experiments in January 2000, De Aquino also proved that “gravitational forces can be reduced, nullified and inverted by means of electromagnetic radiation.” Hardeman’s Barbury gravity shielding device is wholly compatible with De Aquino’s work (see De Aquino, F.- Gravitation and Electromagnetism: Correlation and Grand Unification, Los Alamos National Laboratory preprint, 1999; and Possibility of Control of the Gravitational Mass by Means of Extra Low Frequencies radiation, Physics Department, Maranhao State University, S.Luis, Brazil).

That Hardeman has found something of merit is evidenced by the way the U.S. military, Boeing, several oil companies, NASA, and the U.S. Treasury suddenly took an interest in his work shortly after it was published on the Internet – the computer storing the information was subsequently hacked, and Hardeman’s emails intercepted.

The French researcher Jean-Louis Naudin also features the Barbury Gravity Shield on his web site.

These are just some of the ideas now bearing fruit from the study of crop circles, and I share this information to stimulate others to pursue this avenue at their heart’s desire. I have always believed that aside from the spiritual awakening crop circles are presenting to people, the glyphs would one day provide new ideas for sustainable energy, if only we adopt an open-minded approach to their message. Such ‘technology’ is already used in resonance therapy, particularly in Germany, where the crop circles are known to carry biological codes that help revitalize natural systems in distress, such as dying forests and polluted rivers; people are also being cured through the combination of crop circles and resonance therapy, the results scientifically proved for at least a decade.

The Watchers’ reference to new forms of technology to be deciphered from the glyphs during the first decade of the 21st century finds itself grounded in an unusual experiment by the psychopharmacologist Dennis McKenna, together with his philosopher brother Terence, who categorized and chronologically plotted the greatest discoveries and technological developments since 5000 BCE, then fed the information into a computer. Having digested the data, the computer provided a graphic printout showing how these discoveries fell into a hyperbolic curve that flattened out around 1975. Intrigued, they programmed the computer to project and predict future discoveries; this time the line took a dramatic upswing, flying off the scale at 2011, whereupon the predictions ended; during the last two hours of this time-scale, no less than 18 crucial discoveries are predicted, some rivaling the splitting of the atom. These accomplishments would be accompanied by transformations in human consciousness in the year marking the end of the Mayan calendar, which predicts this, the Age of Intellect, to be superseded by the Age of the Spirituality in 2012.

The McKennas’ theory seems plausible, considering that in the sixty seven year cycle that includes the detonation of the atom bomb, technological and social breakthroughs have accelerated faster than the time between Galileo and Hiroshima. The dramatic and exponential rise in crop circles from the 1980s onwards may be part of this ‘law of acceleration’. But there’s more. Like the physicist Bohm, the McKenna brothers also present our Universe as a hologram, a creation of two intersecting hyper-Universes, in the same way a conventional hologram requires the intersecting of two lasers. The McKennas propose that our holographic Universe consists of 64 (8×8) frequencies, of which ours is but one. As these two hyper-Universes intersect in ‘time’, our DNA will need to evolve rapidly to cope with all 64 frequencies as they intersect, the event reaching its crescendo in 2012. This date came about when the McKennas programmed a computer with the 64 time systems, each based on the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching, which itself is a model of the physical structure of a single helical strand of DNA (see The Invisible Landscape).


Runes – Esoteric Design Inspiration

So thanks to my wonderful mom, she got me a new set of rune stones! Classic ones too! Mine are exactly like the picture above.

The Runic Alphabet, also called Futhark, writing system of uncertain origin used by Germanic peoples of northern Europe, Britain, Scandinavia, and Iceland from about the 3rd century to the 16th or 17th century AD. Runic writing appeared rather late in the history of writing and is clearly derived from one of the alphabets of the Mediterranean area. Because of its angular letter forms, however, and because early runic inscriptions were written from right to left like the earliest alphabets, runic writing seems to belong to a more ancient system.

Scholars have attempted to derive it from the Greek or Latin alphabets, either capitals or cursive forms, at any period from the 6th century BC to the 5th century AD. A likely theory is that the runic alphabet was developed by the Goths, a Germanic people, from the Etruscan alphabet of northern Italy and was perhaps also influenced by the Latin alphabet in the 1st or 2nd century BC.

Two inscriptions, the Negau and the Maria Saalerberg inscriptions, written in Etruscan script in a Germanic language and dating from the 2nd and 1st centuries BC, respectively, give credence to the theory of Etruscan origins for runic.

There are at least three main varieties of runic script: Early, or Common, Germanic (Teutonic), used in northern Europe before about 800 AD; Anglo-Saxon, or Anglian, used in Britain from the 5th or 6th century to about the 12th century AD; and Nordic, or Scandinavian, used from the 8th to about the 12th or 13th century AD in Scandinavia and Iceland.

After the 12th century, runes were still used occasionally for charms and memorial inscriptions until the 16th or 17th century, chiefly in Scandinavia.

The Early Germanic script had 24 letters, divided into three groups, called ættir, of 8 letters each. The sounds of the first six letters were f, u, th, a, r, and k, respectively, giving the alphabet its name: futhark. The Anglo-Saxon script added letters to the futhark to represent sounds of Old English that did not occur in the languages that had used the Early Germanic script.

Anglo-Saxon had 28 letters, and after about 900 AD it had 33.

There were also some slight differences in letter shape.

The Scandinavian languages were even richer in sounds than Old English; but, instead of adding letters to the futhark to represent the new sounds, the users of the Nordic script compounded the letter values, using the same letter to stand for more than one sound–e.g., one letter for k and g, one letter for a, æ, and o. This practice eventually resulted in the reduction of the futhark to 16 letters.

Other varieties of runes included the Hälsinge Runes, the Manx Runes, and the stungnar runir, or “dotted runes,” all of which were variants of the Nordic script. More than 4,000 runic inscriptions and several runic manuscripts are extant.

Approximately 2,500 of these come from Sweden, the remainder being from Norway, Denmark and Schleswig, Britain, Iceland, various islands off the coast of Britain and Scandinavia, and other countries of Europe, including France, Germany, Ukraine, and Russia.

Futhark actually is analogous to our “alphabet”, in that f,u, th, a, r, and k are the first 6 Runic letters, while alpha and beta are the first 2 Greek letters. This order must have had some mneumonic function that was not preserved. (Just like why aleph, beth, and gimmel are the first 3 letters in Phoenician/Ugaritic).


Symbol Quote

…”So they devised ciphers, codes and symbolism for the their own and future generations to decipher. Symbols are hidden all around us like a trail of clues leading towards treasure. We come into contact with them everywhere we go; from the symbolic architecture and stained glass windows of medieval churches, to, for example, the logo on a company van.

Mankind has used this subtle language for thousands of years. Through each generation, this alternative form of communication has developed and grown increasingly complex, making it more difficult to decipher. The only way to discover the secrets of symbolism is to break down each and every painting, building or text into every possible meaning, and consider both the people who created these artefacts and the time in which they lived.” – The Shining Ones: The World’s most powerful secret society revealed.Philip Gardiner

The Quarantine and Military Logos

Article by David Wilcock:


As you may already know, I have been fortunate enough to interact with multiple witnesses who have worked in various levels of the UFO cover-up — some at levels significantly above the need-to-know basis of the President of the United States.

When you speak with the top-level insiders in the black-ops community, you often hear them mention THE RULES.

These projects are so compartmentalized that only the high-level people are even aware that THE RULES exist — or of how far-reaching they are.
It has taken me years of interviews to explore and unravel this strange subject — particularly because of the potential for confusion.
Sometimes, when insiders talk about THE RULES, they are talking about guidelines their own group insists they follow — such as secrets they must keep, disinformation they are expected to pass along, who gets to know how much, what mistakes are bad enough to get you killed, et cetera.
However, over the course of many conversations, I increasingly realized there was another level of THE RULES — a level they have absolutely no control over. 


In this greater cosmic sense, THE RULES are a set of principles that the insider black-ops community has felt, for at least the past century, were as fixed and unchangeable as the Universe itself.
They also believed THE RULES would continue, unaltered, for millions of years. Apparently they have time-viewing technology that led them to believe this was the case.

The idea that this was a manipulated timeline, and not necessarily the real future, was far too mind-blowing for them to ever consider — particularly since you have people living within these timelines, and you can go and visit them and live there yourself.
Nonetheless, all ETs visiting the Earth must operate within THE RULES. It is impossible for them not to.


One day, only a few weeks ago, I finally got smart enough to bluntly ask one of my main contacts, “Who makes THE RULES?”

The reply was: “Who makes gravity? Who makes the sun rise and set? Who makes the Galaxy spin?

“We don’t know who makes THE RULES, David, but we have no choice but to follow them. There is no workaround. There is no other way. That’s why they’re THE RULES.”

This is a strange subject, and will undoubtedly lead to some folks laughing and thinking I’m crazy… but this is what you hear about when you talk to these insiders yourself.

At the highest levels of the UFO cover-up, it is well-understood that events on Earth, and indeed throughout the inhabited galaxy, are being managed and controlled — by unseen forces.

Some things are allowed to happen… and others are not.


As one key example of THE RULES, our Earth is under a ‘Quarantine’ that prevents most ETs from being able to enter our airspace in a way that would be visible to the naked eye — except in rare, unpredictable and brief bursts of time.

This is the main reason why we don’t see more visible UFOs — particularly in the case of negatively-oriented ETs. In fact, without this Quarantine, negative ETs would have invaded and taken over this planet eons ago.

This Quarantine also appears to allow those planetary controllers here on Earth to do whatever they want. Or so they thought.

The Quarantine is maintained by a vast network of super-advanced, indestructible satellites surrounding the Earth — built by very high-level ETs. These satellites keep humanity locked in — and everyone else locked out.

The insiders do not know who built these satellites, nor precisely why they are there. It’s simply another part of THE RULES.

When you view the patches of US Space Command or Navy Space Command, they picture the Earth surrounded by two circles, similar to the typical depiction of electron orbitals around an atom.

This symbolizes the Quarantine — which protects us from the bad guys.


On this official military website, you can find a patch commemorating the 25th anniversary of Air Force Space Command — from 1982 to 2007. You can see the two rings around the Earth clearly depicted, as well as a stylized image of a back-engineered ET spacecraft in flight:

From what I’ve heard, these triangular craft are enormous in size — taking quite some time to walk from one end to the other — and are already in operation throughout the galaxy. The shape you see in these emblems is almost exactly what they look like.


If you read this US Space Command page, you will find very specific information about who was in charge, when they were in charge, and what they allegedly were up to… and it includes the following emblem, featuring the rings I’m talking about:

Notice the crosses on each of the rings. We’ll get back to that in a minute.

You can also read about US Space Command in this article on — in an interview with Gene McCall, chief scientist for the Air Force Space Command. Naturally, the article attempts to put a mundane spin on the story and does not include any real ‘juice’ of Disclosure.


You again see the rings around the Earth in the Air Force Space Command patch. This was originally featured on the official Air Force Space Command website, which has since been taken down.

However, at this website, there is a comprehensive series of mirrored links to what was originally on these official websites — along with the now-defunct links. I suggest saving your own copy in case it gets taken down.

When you go to this mirror site and sort through the images and text, this triangular metallic flying machine image appears over and over again on various badges and emblems — along with the two “quarantine rings”:

Also, again notice the two crosses on either side of the delta-shaped spacecraft — crosses that directly contact the rings.

These, I believe, are meant to be Knights Templar crosses.


In a Project Camelot interview, Gordon Novel revealed that these insiders like to refer to themselves as the Knights Temporal:

K: When you say “we,” who’s we?

The Knights Temporal

G: Well, I have a group of folks that I call the Knights Temporal.

The most prominent aerospace engineers and physicists in the world today are all part of a team we call the RAM group. We call ourselves the Knights Temporal.

We took a page out of the idea of the Templars, who basically blackmailed the Pope to give them the fiefdoms over Europe. They created the banking orders we have today.

Since we believe the technology is rooted in time, we call ourselves the Knights Temporal. The alien technology, the UFO, is basically a flying time machine. That’s what we believe, and it’s all we know about it.

What Novel does not say here is that these international bankers did not merely “take a page out of the idea of the Templars.” These groups are the direct descendants of the Knight Templars — and have still kept all their secrets.


The same two “quarantine rings” appear in the emblem for the Naval Space Command, also mirrored at the above site:


This next patch can be found on the official Vandenburg Air Force Base website on Strategic Air

Again we see a cross on one of the Earth’s protective rings. The sword, as we shall see, appears to be a Knight Templar blade.

With the line “Strengthen the Shield,” there is a clear implication here that the two rings around the Earth could be some sort of ‘shield’ that we want to make sure stays strong.

Further, there is the suggestion that this shield may be at least partially enforced by that same weird delta-shaped craft:


Also check out this “AFSST 76th Space Ops” patch from the same site — the official Vandenburg Air Force Base website on Strategic Air

Again we see one of the “quarantine rings” as well as the same flying metallic triangle — this time with wings around it just in case you didn’t get the point that it flies.

Two smaller delta-shaped craft also flank the AFSST acronym at the bottom:


The “quarantine rings” and flying metallic triangles show up again in the emblem for the Joint Functional Component Command for Space, which has its own official Wikipedia page here:

As it says on the Wikipedia page, according to Lieutenant General William L. Shelton, “Our prime mission directive in JFCC SPACE is to ensure our freedom of action in space, while preventing adversary use of space against us.”


These badges from Schriever Air Force Base follow the same theme — quarantine rings and peculiar aircraft operating far outside the Earth’s atmosphere — including an orange object that could be a comet, but could also be a saucer-shaped craft.

Notice the difference in size between the small black delta-shaped craft and the larger metallic delta-shaped craft in the first badge below.

That size difference may not be an indication that one is closer than the other — it may acutally be a direct indication of how huge the larger craft is in comparison to the black one:

And into the Void came a Thought… reflections

So I have been meaning to reflect on the following quote:

“Know ye, O Thoth, in the beginning there was a VOID and nothingness, a timeless, spaceless, nothingness. And into the nothingness came a thought, purposeful, all-prevading, and it filled the VOID… In the beginning, there was eternal thought, and for thought to be eternal, time must exist. So into the all-prevading thought grew the Law of Time… Time changes not, but all things change in time. For time is the force that holds events separate, each in its own proper place. Time is not in motion, but ye move through time as your consciousness moves from one event to another. Aye, by time yet exist, all in all an eternal one existence. Know ye that even though in the time ye are separate, yet still are ONE, in all times existent… within thee is all time and space.” – The Emerald Tablet

The Emerald Tablet, also known as Smaragdine Table, Tabula Smaragdina, or The Secret of Hermes, is a text purporting to reveal the secret of the primordial substance and its transmutations. It is one of many of the different mystical texts that supposedly contains the Ultimate Truth. Thoth is the Egyptian God, THOUGHT who was known in many traditions as Hermes, Merlin and Enoch. The Hebrew Bible, is said to be based off of jewish mysticism. But a very shortened version of the texts… the compact and cryptic text was highly regarded by European alchemists as the foundation of their art, in particular of its Hermetic tradition.

Genesis 1:3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

Its interesting that the writer of the Emerald Tablets, states that we all perceive time and space within ourselves. So this means that time and space outside our body does not exist.

Its also interesting to note that many of these ancient tablets were written in stone, the fabled, Ten Commandments, the Emerald Tablet, etc. According to Light Stream Technologies,

Stones have a great hidden purpose in nature. They possess a great untapped power. They have memory! Stones hold vibrations and they can transmit vibrations!

The mystery is the greatest unknown secret of the Stone Masons of the highest 33rd degree. Stone has electrical capacitance, and where there is electrical capacity, memory and vibration can be stored. God placed a secret vibration in the stone to allow humans to contact the Divine.

Even though there is aesthetic beauty in stone masonry, architecture and design of the spiritual temples of all religions, we strayed away from God’s purpose in placing spiritual vibration in stone by instead placing symbols, letters, design and numbers in stone, giving these symbols more importance than spiritual vibration.

One translation, by Isaac Newton, found among his alchemical papers as reported by B. J. Dobbs in modern spelling:

1. Tis true without lying, certain most true.
2. That which is below is like that which is above that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing.
3. And as all things have been arose from one by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.
4. The Sun is its father, the moon its mother,
the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth its nurse.
5. The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.
6. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.
7. Separate thou the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry.
8. It ascends from the earth to the heaven again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things superior and inferior.
9. By this means ye shall have the glory of the whole world thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.
10. Its force is above all force. for it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing.
So was the world created.
11. From this are and do come admirable adaptations whereof the means (Or process) is here in this.
12. Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world.
13. That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished and ended.


Luxatone: the Color Organ, turning sound in color

H Spencer Lewis

     Among H Spencer Lewis’ many talents
was that of designer and builder of unusual electrical inventions and prototypes
for the purpose of demonstrating the mystical principles and natural
law found in the teachings. If he were alive today he would probably
be called a hardware hacker in the best sense of the term.
     When the first AMORC Rosicrucian Temple 
was opened in 1915 in New York City it had a ‘wireless’ radio with HSL
often putting on headphones and scanning the airwaves to hear what was
out there.
    Indeed, part of the description of a Rosicrucian
throughout the ages is a mystic who can embrace new technologies to
help spread the Light.    Modern Rosicrucians have adapted
the new Internet technology in much the same way to stay in touch, participate
in forums, distribute materials, get research help, learn about local
activities and visit web sites like this one.
     So, with the goal of inspiring others
to find new ways to use new technologies to spread the Light I offer
for your entertainment this collection of strange devices from the night
gallery of the occult.
   The Color Organ was a device that converted
portions of the audio spectrum into portions of the color light spectrum.    
The microphone was used to input speech or music and the display screen
would display the colors and their intensity in sync.   The
man on the left is Ralph M. Lewis before he became the 2nd Imperator
     It’s primary use was to demonstrate
the Cosmic Keyboard as taught by AMORC that there are octaves of manifestation
and that each musical note has a harmonic correspondence to a specific
color in a higher octave.
     The design principle was fairly simple
though innovative for it’s time.   The screen was a triangular
box with a translucent piece of glass on the front.  Within the
box in each corner was a red, blue or green colored light bulb whose light
would glow and be visible through the glass viewing screen. 

     Within the console itself was a complex
circuit built from vacuum tubes and radio components.  There was
one primary detection channel or circuit.   When a sound frequency
was detected via the microphone the circuit would measure the frequency
and power the colored light bulbs in combination to mix the desired color.  
The three light bulbs represented the three primary colors from which
all other colors could be mixed by lighting the bulbs in varying intensity
with the blended color appearing in the center of the triangular display.

The guts of the Luxatone
with vacuum tubes and a hefty power transformer.

     After the Luxatone was demonstrated
with success this booklet was published and sent out to members of the Order
and the newspapers.  Here’s scans
of the complete booklet.

     If you were in college in the 1960’s
or 70’s you may have owned a modern version of the Luxatone sold by
Radio Shack that connected to the speaker terminals of your stereo and
blinked colored lights in rhythm with the music.  Far out, man! 
And a very entertaining scientific demonstration of the Cosmic Keyboard
    One other thing….. the Luxatone built
by H Spencer Lewis bears a surprising resemblance to the ‘Interoscitor’,
a communications device built by space aliens in the 1950’s sci-fi classic
movie This Island Earth.  Take a look and see what you
think!  :-)

The Cosmic Ray Coincidence Counter


    The Cosmic Ray Coincidence Counter appears
to have been a very early prototype of a Geiger counter to detect and
register ambient levels of radioactivity which at that time in the 1930’s
was still an largely unknown frequency spectrum and scientific mystery. 
     Just as radio had years earlier proven
that speech and music could be transmitted via an unseen and wireless
‘ether’ it could now use that same radio technology to contact and demonstrate
the existence of an even high rate of vibration that was closer still
to the divine vibration of creation.

     The two long tubes on the front were
used as transducers to detect the Cosmic Ray particles just like a radio
antenna or sensor probe of a giggler counter.  These were rotated
and adjusted along with the dials to set the frequency range and detection
     Now if you  look carefully at the
photos showing the rear of the unit you’ll see a  vacuum tube driven
radio receiver and audio amplifier connected to a round speaker from
which the audience could actually hear the Cosmic Ray particles.   
The metal box on the bottom shelf was the AC power supply.
     This device was used for demonstration
purpose at conventions and RCU during the late 1930’s to early 1940’s
to demonstrate the existence of higher frequency manifestations and the
ability to contact these forces through the use of the principles of attunement.

Sympathetic Vibration Harp

   One of the keystone teachings
of AMORC was the principle of resonance or sympathetic vibration which simply
states that one object vibrating at a particular frequency with resonate
with another object that is also tuned to the same frequency.

     H. Spencer Lewis built a simple harp from wood with
12 strings tuned to the 12 musical notes of the scale. You would then strike
one of the tuning forks and hold it close to the strings so the one string
tuned to that note would sound.  Pitch pipes were also used as were violin
bows stroked against a pane of glass (see above).

Here’s a paper on Chromoacoustics: The Science of Sound and Color

And into the Void came a Thought

“Know ye, O Thoth, in the beginning there was a VOID and nothingness, a timeless, spaceless, nothingness. And into the nothingness came a thought, purposeful, all-prevading, and it filled the VOID… In the beginning, there was eternal thought, and for thought to be eternal, time must exist. So into the all-prevading thought grew the Law of Time… Time changes not, but all things change in time. For time is the force that holds events separate, each in its own proper place. Time is not in motion, but ye move through time as your consciousness moves from one event to another. Aye, by time yet exist, all in all an eternal one existence. Know ye that even though in the time ye are separate, yet still are ONE, in all times existent… within thee is all time and space.” – The Emerald Tablets

Creative Process of the Dogon..

In The Pale Fox, Griuale and Dieterlen describe a basic approach to the act of creating that is defined within the framework of Dogon mythology. This approach includes four phases or stages and, for the Dogon, applies equally to any creative project, whether it be a creative act of Amma or an undertaking of man – for example, the building of a dwelling. The first of these is the conceptual stage, in which an idea is conceived, and which the Dogon call Bummo. Aat this stage, the project exists only in signs or seeds – symbols that represent the final thing to be created. For a middle school student assigned to write a report, this would be the equivalent of seelecting a topic. In the second stage, called the yala, the project is conceptualized in broad strokes that identify the boundaries of the object tobe created. This compares roughly to our middle school student’s report outline, Griaule and Dieterlen described this phase in The Pale Fox,

After the first series, that of abstract signs or “trace” bumo, will come the second series, that of the yala “mark” or “image,” executed in dotted lines…”The yala of a thing is like the beginning of the thing.” Therefore, when one builds a house, one delineates the foundation with stones placed at the corners: these stones are the yala, the “marks” of the future dwelling. The term yala also has the meaning of “reflection,” which expresses the future form of the thing represent.”

The third developmental stage refines the image of the thing to be created by filling in the main details of the object or concept. We could say that this third stage would be comparable to a student’s detailed notes to a first draft of the report. In regard to this stage. Griaule and Dieterlen wrote:

The third series of signs is that of the tonu, “figure,” “diagram,” or sometimes “periphery,” of things. The Tonu is a schematic outline of generally separated graphic elements; it is the sketch, the rough draft of the thing or being represented. THe word tonu comes from tono, “to portray,” which also means “to begin,” but in the dynamic sense of the word. it is said that Amma “began things,” amma kize tono, to demonstrate the initial impetus he gave to creation…. the Tonu of the house connotes the pebbles that have been placed between the corner-stones to delimit the walls.”

The fourht and final stage of the creative act is to produce the finished image of the thing to be created. It is interesting that the Dogon make almost no distinction between the representation of an object and the object iteself. Griaule and Dieterlen described this completion stage in The Pale Fox:

The fourth series consists of the “drawings,” toymu (or toy), as realistically representative of the thing as possible. It is also the thing itself. Wen one has finished the building of a house, it is as ife on had made a complte drawing, toymu, of the house. In speaking of the toy and of Ama, one says: “to make the drawing is to make the thing that he (Amma) has in mind. It is, therefore, to represent the thing created in its reality.”

The Dogon Creation myth part 1

Dogon Creation myth is one of the oldest creation myths in existence.

The Dogon say that the stars were created from pellets of earth flung out into space by the one true god, Amma. The sun and the moon were created by a process much like that of making pottery, which was the first known invention of god. The sun is like a pot that has been fired until it is white-hot, then surrounded by a spiral of copper with eight turns. To create the Earth, Amma squeezed a lump of clay in his hand and threw it away from himself in the same manner as he did the stars. The clay spread to the north and to the south (the top and the bottom) in a movement that was horizontal. By nature, the Earth is female. Looking at it flat and considering the cardinal points of the compass as her appendages, it is like a woman lying on her back with her arms and legs spread. The anthill is her female organ. In the course of time, Amma tried to fertilize her, but in what was breach of order in the universe, proper intercourse could not take place. In the universe, there is a principle of twin births, but this flawed union between god and Earth created only one being, the jackal, which became the symbol of disorder and the difficulties of god. Later, having overcome the difficulty, god had intercourse with the Earth again, this time successfully. Water, which is the divine seed, entered the womb of the Earth and resulted in the birth of twins. Two beings were formed, which god created like water. They were green in color and were half human, half serpent. Their bodies were green and sleek all over and shiny like the surface of the water. These spirits were called Nummo, and they were born perfect. They had eight members, and their number was eight, which is also the symbol of speech. They were of divine essence, which is the life force of the world, and is water. The name Nummo is synonymous in the Dogon language with the word for water. To the Dogon, Nummo is water and the Nummo pair is present in all water – whether it is drinking water, water of the river, or water of storms.
