5/11/20: ET IN ARCADIA EGO – THE MOCKING OF THE BEAST
MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
There is one thing I can say about the virus; it has given me a lot of opportunity to catch up on my essential TV viewing. As I have said before, my friend turned me on to what is called a Fire stick where I can put apps on my TV and watch some of the shows that are streaming now on Disney+, CBS All Access, and Amazon Prime.
There has always been this argument that now with all of the streaming networks, directors have the ability to produce movie quality TV and of course with access to all of the streaming networks I am beginning to believe it is true.
I have binge watched Man in the High Castle, I re-watched the Mandalorian because I was only able to watch it on my phone –and I just finished a whole season of Star Trek Piccard.
I wanted to comment on how dark the Picard series was and yet it was endearing in a way. The original Star Trek cast seemed to be immortal but the Picard story is more about mortality and what it means to be human and again it is ironic that the one to teach us this lesson is an Android named Data.
Now for the Treckies, the fate of Data was revealed in the film Nemesis—and yet the character endures in Picard. I won’t spoil the reason why only that I was curious about the title of the last to episodes of the series is “Et in Arcadia Ego.”
This phrase translates to “Even in Arcadia, there am I.” The title comes from a French Baroque painting from the 1600s, by Nicola Poussin which contrasted a traditional idealized pastoral scene with the specter of death. Art historians traditionally interpret the “I” in that title to refer to death itself, deliberately calling to mind the mortality that wraps around even the most wondrous and idyllic moments in one’s life.
I actually suggested that “Et in Arcadia Ego” be placed on Tracy Twyman’s tombstone.
Just below an engraving of the “Arcadian Shepherds” painting lies a seemingly random sequence of letters, “O-U-O-S-V-A-V-V,” etched on the monument between the letters “D” and “M.” Without an explanation for its meaning, the inscription is considered one of the world’s most perplexing ciphers that no one has been able to figure out.
It has been suggested that the Shepherds if Arcadia are gathered around a tomb and that the D and the M stands for “Dis Manibus” which means “for the Manes” (mythical spirits of the underworld), which is found inscribed on various ancient Christian tombs.
It has been noted the fourteen letters of Et in Arcadia Ego is an anagram of I Tego Arcana Dei; translated as “Begone! I conceal the secrets of God.”
Which raises the question as to who is enclosed in the tomb.
Some claim that it is a great King that shall return from paradise, much like Jesus Christ, while others believe that there is a diabolical element with links to the Anti-christ and the end times.
Ironically in the final Picard episode there is a moment during a campfire scene where a Romulan named Narek tells a story about an ancient tale of their apocalypse.
Narek is telling the ancient Romulan story of the Seb-Cheneb, he claims that the story dates back to even before his Romulan ancestors arrived on Vulcan. Turns out that the event is called Ganmadan and it refers to the end of all things, like Judgment Day or Ragnarök.
Twin sisters or khalagu (the equivalent of what we call demons) will come and they’re prophesied to release the ch’khalagu a leagion of demonic warroriors. One sister is called Sepnatahn (the foreteller) and she plays a drum made from the skin of children. She strikes it with a chain of skulls so hard and for so long that her heart bursts from the effort.
The other sister is called Seb-Cheneb (the destroyer) who carries a horn from the great pale hell beast called Ganmadan. When she blows a blast on that horn, it will unleash all the ch’khalagu who have been waiting since the beginning of time.
The moment, is amazing as it triggers memories of other stories of the end times and that it is proposed that generations many times over experience.
I found it quite interesting that something as complex as a Romulan apocalypse story seemed to resonate with the times we are in now.
I was perusing through the Drudge Report today and saw a curious headline that said:
“Four Horsemen are ACTIVE’ Bible scholars claim Book of Revelation seals broken”... as I read through the article it was pointing out that some bible scholars conclude that the seven seals spoken of in the biblical Book of Revelation have been broken.
In 2005, Bible scholar Fred Dattolo published an article in ‘The Trumpet’ where he claimed “the galloping hoofbeats of the four horses are getting ever louder and closer,” stating that a future pandemic was all that was needed to set free the final Horseman, who would spread a disease to a quarter of the world. He said: “The four horsemen are depicted in the Book of Revelation Chapter 6 as the first four of seven seals. “These seals are benchmarks of end-time events leading up to and including the return of Jesus Christ.
With the coronavirus pandemic currently causing global panic, Mr Dattolo’s claims have come back into the spotlight, with some stating that COVID-19 is in fact a sign of the End Times.
One Twitter user said: “The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse representing war, famine, pestilence and death as depicted in the Bible on Revelation 6:2-8 are most likely causing this coronavirus worldwide.
And just like that people were tweeting stories of major earthquakes in diverse places, the moon turning to blood and the sun turning black as sackcloth.
Within the past several days, large earthquakes have been striking all along the outer rim of the Pacific Ocean, and many are wondering if all of this activity could potentially be building up to something really big.
California and Alaska coastlines have been absolutely peppered by quakes in recent days, but nobody is really talking about these quakes because everyone is so focused on COVID-19 right now.
There have been plenty of odd quakes recently like the 700 that were felt on an unknown virtually dead fault line near Salt Lake City – Idaho also felt an earthquake as well.
But in the ring of fire we have been seeing and feeling quakes in many places.
A 4.5 magnitude earthquake originating in Imperial County rocked San Diego from East Village to Lakeside on Sunday afternoon, according to the United States Geological Survey.
Meanwhile, the section of the Ring of Fire that runs along the west coast of South America has also been getting hit pretty hard. A magnitude 5.4 quake struck northern Chile on Sunday, and that really shook a lot of people up.
Subsequently, the portion of the Ring of Fire that runs along the coast of Japan was hit by a magnitude 5.8 earthquake very late on Sunday was very quickly followed by a magnitude 5.6 earthquake in Indonesia.
Of course, Indonesia sits right along the Ring of Fire as well.
There has been so much shaking in Indonesia recently, but most Americans never hear about it. Just a few days ago, Indonesia was hit by a magnitude 6.9 earthquake that was so powerful that it was actually felt in Australia.
The weather has not been at all normal as temperatures have heated up drastically in many parts of the United States and record cold has been recorded later due to a late forming of the Polar Vortex.
Alaska had warmer than normal temperatures Sunday. It was 82 degrees in Fairbanks.
Over Mother’s Day weekend, parts of New England received over 6 inches of snow, as cities across the Eastern U.S. woke up to record low temperatures.
Needless to say, we live on a violent planet but many people are beginning to take notice of what can be the irony of what we call the end times.
My step son, Liam, even asked me the other morning how the apocalypse was treating me and said that maybe the world did end in 2012 and that we are just stuck in this game of good, evil and complacency.
I laughed and agreed with him and then a few things also caught my eye in the news that was certainly a bit of apocalyptic irony that seemed to either fulfill the paranoid prophecies of John or is making fun of them in way that the Cosmic Trickster often does.
I first heard of the Cosmic Trickster when I read books by Charles Fort. It is often that the trickster is in the business of weaponizing logic to the point of sick a twisted irony.
Of course, most of what we are hearing about COVID-19 is not based on any logic, although those who believe in mercenary science will tell you otherwise. What we are all being programmed into believing is in some mass produced, commodified ideal of “logic.”
“Logic” has become a synonym for correctness and intelligence. It somehow gets mixed up as virtue and compliance is now regarded as logical and virtuous. However, it certainly has become a weapon as everyone that is doing what they are told are now experts on the subject of COVID-19 –and if you have lost someone from the virus that somehow seals the deal – losing someone to the virus does not make anyone an expert and it appears that mass death is business as usual when science is at the helm of government.
Machines run on pure logic and if the technocracy continues to have their way we are all going to be treated like machines and we will also act like machines to each other.
It is all about the power and Sorcery of Silicon. Technology prevails and the machines and those who have technology are the ones that people now listen to –and even if they are evil geniuses people are unaware how weaponized logic and the mocking of the organic human is self-evident. “logic” has become fetishized. And, whenever methods or tools of expression and thought become fetishized, they will always eventually become weaponized.
We can’t investigate everything; there isn’t enough time. The fact that something is popular is pretty good evidence that it is in some way “better” than something that is unpopular at least this is the logic of the masses based on the weaponized logic of the technocracy.
The sorcerers of Silicon have no respect for you – Bill Gates and others like him are not in the business of the sanctity of humanity – they are in league in creating their own simulated apocalypse that mocks the various prophecies that many that believe in the Abrahamic religions have read for millennia.
Microsoft has filed for a patent for a new cryptocurrency mining system that will purportedly leverage the data collected from people via sensors, as they interact with advertising or exercise, instead of using equipment that require massive amounts of power.
Microsoft filed the patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) on March 26. The new system proposes using sensors to detect and calculate the amount of energy and time spent on a pre-determined activity, like engaging with an advertisement, and convert that sum into data which can be used by computers to solve computational problems and create new blocks.
Microsoft’s new proposed system will maintain a blockchain and its token using the same premise as a traditional proof-of-work network without the physical miners and without the heavy computational power expense of their equipment, substituting it with the data gathered and converted from the unconscious activity of people.
The system will monitor a person’s physical actions and energy spent via sensors to mine cryptocurrencies. When the sensors detect that the monitored body is exerting themselves physically, it converts the data recorded on the subject and converts them to power to unlock blocks. The system is also purported to monitor mental exertion, mind power used when a person is reading or writing, and convert this into data respectively.
According to the patent application, “Instead of massive computation work required by some conventional cryptocurrency systems, data generated based on the body activity of the user can be a proof-of-work, and therefore, a user can solve the computationally difficult problem unconsciously.”
The question is how to monitor the activity to make the coin appear in the blockchain?
Maybe the answer is in the number of the patent itself.
It is a microchip patent that is numbered WO/2020/060606.
Ironic isn’t it that the patent number ends with 666.
Former CEO of Microsoft Bill Gates has been popping up regularly in the media since the coronavirus pandemic began, determined to help the world by developing and distributing a vaccine to the global population.
He also recommends that local governments include contact tracing in order to ensure that we find those who have COVID-19 and possibly force them into quarantine or worse.
Google and apple have been on board with smart phone systems that can give warnings to people who are near someone that might be infected.
There is even a bill being presented to provide money for those who wish to trace or track people.
In all of its sick and twisted irony, H. R. 6666 would nationalize contact tracing, followed by interrogation and the removal of everyone “infected” or having contact with an infected person to a “quarantine center.”
The bill, introduced by Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Il) states that its pupose is to :
“To authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to award grants to eligible entities to conduct diagnostic testing for COVID-19, and related activities such as contact tracing, through mobile health units and, as necessary, at individuals’ residences, and for other purposes.”
Written with the usual ambiguity, this bill basically gives the government the authority to do whatever it wants under the guise of “the public good” using COVID-19 as an excuse. The bill has 47 co-sponsors — all Democrats.
If the worries of most quarantined Christians in the United States center on health and when they might resume their lives, there is a segment that wonders whether this moment has greater biblical significance. These apocalyptic-minded Christians seem to have become increasingly less concerned about the disease itself and more concerned about the government’s response to the disease.
To some, it appears Satan’s emissaries are poised to take advantage of the pandemic. Some Christian pastors believe the start of a Last Days battle for religious freedom began with the social distancing orders that have placed weekly in-person church services under fire.
Catholic cardinals are saying that the failure of Christians to take communion at Easter opened up the world for evil.
The recent ironies of the patent 060606 and the house bill 6666 have a lot of people wondering if these Identification patents and laws are not pushing is to take what would be a chip or a tattoo that they fear is the mark of the beast.
There was also an article that ran ironically enough in the Daily Beast that openly talked about Bill Gates’ new technology that would be developed in order to identify the infected and the vaccinated. The beast was actually mocking people who believed that what gates was developing was technology that sounds like the Mark of the Beast.
The Beast claimed that right wing conspiracy theorists believe that Gates is somehow developing a tracking device to pair with any coronavirus vaccine. Some right-wing figures have even claimed Gates is developing the “mark of the Beast” predicted in the Book of Revelation. In fact, Gates’ foundation funded research in 2016 into using invisible ink to track child vaccination in developing countries, long before the coronavirus pandemic.
While there so far is no proof that Gates will put a chip or a nano spec in hos vaccines – his would be difficult there is evidence that there is invisible ink that can be used in the vaccine.
Last December Scientific American reported that a group of Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers has developed a way to track kids as to whether or not they have gotten their vaccines.
Along with the vaccine, a child would be injected with a bit of dye that is invisible to the naked eye but easily seen with a special cell-phone filter, combined with an app that shines near-infrared light onto the skin. The dye would be expected to last up to five years, according to tests on pig and rat skin and human skin in a dish.
The key hear is wondering what kind of dye will be used that will be able to create bioluminescence under the skin when scanned?
The ingredient is called LUCIFERACE.
Luciferase is a protein compound that is produced in fireflies. By conjugating luciferase protein to quantum dots—the system becomes complete.
While there is nothing evil about Luciferase – the name Lucifer certainly conjures a bit of fear when applied to a special tracking system
The system—which has not yet been tested in children—would provide quick and easy access to vaccination history, avoid the risk of clerical errors, and would be an adequate way to track those who have immunity.
The quantum-dot tattoos involve applying dissolvable sugar-based microneedles that contain a vaccine and fluorescent copper-based ‘quantum dots’ embedded inside biocompatible, micron-scale capsules. After the microneedles dissolve under the skin, they leave the encapsulated quantum dots whose patterns can be read to identify the vaccine that was administered.
The research, conducted by M.I.T. bioengineers Robert Langer and Ana Jaklenec and their colleagues, uses a patch of tiny needles called microneedles to provide an effective vaccination without a teeth-clenching jab. Microneedles are embedded in a Band-Aid-like device that is placed on the skin; a skilled nurse or technician is not required. Vaccines delivered with microneedles also may not need to be refrigerated, reducing both the cost and difficulty of delivery.
American apocalypticists tend to be suspicious of these kinds of things. I mean wouldn’t anyone? —not only are technocrats proposing some drastic new measures that look like the mark of the beast—they use numbers and different technologies to mock the beast.
The Apostle John wrote in the Book of the Apocalypse of an economic dimension that would rise in what is called te imperial cult of the Anti-Christ’s rule. He stated that this beast “causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name… his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
Patents and bill with the sixes and a protein called Luciferase seem to be an obvious mocking of the eschaton.
Microchip technology has since replaced the UPC code as the most likely candidate for the introduction of a cashless society and thus the mark of the beast. While there have been various experiments with human microchipping on a limited basis, there remains a strong objection to the development only partly for biblical reasons. Others are deeply uneasy over the potential for intrusive surveillance and whether such technology would be forced on the public. In response, several states have passed legislation forbidding companies from requiring employees to be microchipped for their internal security systems.
However, Bill Gates continues to push the idea of digital certificates for Identification and tracking and the media has made him a hero.
As part of a Reddit forum, Gates noted that in the future “digital certificates” could trace who had recently been tested or who had received a vaccine (when one is developed) making it possible for business to resume as usual.
How can anyone say that this would not generate some apocalyptic paranoia?
This of course has prompted the media to declare this a conspiracy theory and that it is inaccurate.
But theory or not it’s evident that while the specifics vary, the basic argument is consistent. The vaccine will be coupled with one of two projects that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has played a role in funding. In the first scenario, the vaccine will be injected and tracked via quantum dot technology which, , consists of “an invisible tattoo which is only visible through the use of this special smartphone camera app and filter.”
The app and filter will detect a bioluminescent protein called Luciferase.
In the second scenario, the vaccine would be tied to a second project funded in part by the Gates, ID2020, an international project aimed to provide digital IDs for individuals living throughout the world.
Gates has tried to clarify his reference to “digital certificates,” which he explained referred “to efforts to create an open source digital platform with the goal of expanding access to safe, home-based testing.” Of course, explanations don’t seem to lessen the overall sentiment that he has something to do with a Last Days numbering scenario. After all, an effort to provide a global ID is an effort to track world populations even if its intentions are benevolent.
We need to be very careful and think critically as we go forward into a world of fantastic technology. Like the surgeon’s knife, it can heal or it can kill. Given everything we know; it would be naïve to believe that these technologies will only be used for good. If we’re not aware, this technology will be used by the power-hungry to enslave us by tricking us with promises of security.
No matter how good the technology becomes, it can never replace the spirit of consciousness inside of you, which is your true power.
