I just have to include a caveat with this post I don’t hate cats I am just questioning the nature of our reality with my tongue firmly in cheek as always.
The question of whether Media is alive was brought up this week over at the Library where it was debated if it is one of the most important questions of our time. I believe that question has been asked many times before, throughout the ages in fact.
In this fantasy island fictional media and reality media are merging at an exponential rate. What is real what is fake or should that now be deep fake alongside deep state.
Science fiction writers from the 19th and 20th centuries if they were still with us would see their outlandish and fururistic plots come to life.
Philip K. Dick in his book Eye in the Sky covers the subject of dreams within dreams and parallel dimensions long before it became mainstream. Which is why as I have stated many times that he was a prophetic voice for the 21st Century along with other writers of science fiction from the previous century.
He leaves the reader vulnerable by altering the laws of time, physics and ultimately perception. The characters in Eye In The Sky are distinctive. While they all appear very normal on the surface, dark secrets lurk in the recesses of their minds. It questions the stability of people’s belief system and shatters the trust placed in the FIVE human senses.
While on a visit to the (fictional) Belmont Bevatron in the 1957 novel’s near-future year of 1959, eight people become stuck in a series of subtly and not-so-subtly unreal worlds.
The instigating incident is a malfunction of the particle accelerator (CERN), which places all of the injured parties in states of total or partial unconsciousness.
After the Bee eVe tron fails, all eight members of the tour group are injured by a collapsing walkway (BRIDGE) and high levels of radiation. They awake to a world where miracles, prayer, and curses are common-day occurrences.
Finally, the group arrives in a Marxist caricature of contemporary US society and again … he nailed it.
After McFeyffe is knocked unconscious, the group believes they have returned to the real world. Jack Hamilton and Bill Laws form a small business that seeks advances in stereophonic technology. The novel ends ambiguously, as it is unclear if the group has returned to reality or is still living in someone else’s dream universe.
Dick also hit the nail on the head with this quote from the past to the future.
I was contemplating all of this when I went for a coffee the other day and was browsing through the print media. The first half of one paper was focused on just one story that of a British MP who was a Czech/Russian spy during the Cold War. In particular he handed over sensitive information on Brit ain’s nuclear capabilities to his handler.
They visited nightclubs, among them The Georgian Pussy Club, it featured ‘gorgeous hostesses’ who waited on tables dressed in cat outfits comprising leotards and knee-high boots. It had NINE stand out treats or distractions.
However the spy felt uneasy at the Pussy Club as if he were being spied on himself.
At this time, newspapers were full of stories about Cold War traitors and Robinson, according to the files, was prone to jitters. In the spring of 1967, he met his handler in the Georgian nightclub but for once was unable to enjoy the entertainment. He became nervous about the presence of a man sitting at the next table. The files report that he was probably a musician since he was making notes on sheet music, but Robinson was ‘uneasy’ and, believing they could be overheard, insisted on moving elsewhere.
‘You can’t talk freely here,’ he is said to have told his handler.
After ‘handing over his dark materials’, the files claim Robinson left to attend a meeting in Parliament before reconvening with Pravec an hour and a half later at a restaurant.
On one occasion he met his handler at The Red Lion pub in St James’s, tucked away in Crown Passage, a 17th Century alleyway, and perfect for secret assignations.
In the same newsapaper a former Russian spy was stating that modern spies must love modern technology such as Alexa as they no longer have to enter someone’s premises to plant devices when they have already one planted ready to go. He stated that it’s “not very smart to own anything with the word ‘smart’ contained in it” mmm smart advice.
I have often wondered why they had to choose a Russian name for AI and why does it always have to be predominantly female … and then I realised it is an Amazon after all.
I then returned home to go on the NET for awhile and I was contemplating why female spies are always sexy vamps while at the same time cold, hard and unemotional. They are also associated with secret codes normally related to nuclear or atomic weapons. In addition they are also linked to the colour black or gold and red.
The above film followed the usual script of a Russian ballet dancer being turned into a spy and a deadly assassin.
In this one Charlize Theron is compared to 007 as she goes atomic on the DNA stairwell on the 28 of the Seventh.
In the 2001 film about the Enigma Code the blonde female spy Saffron Burrows (Sparrows) was also good at dancing and like Sinders loses her glass slipper on purpose in order to get her hands on the secret atomic code.
She is an enigma alright I said to myself a terror able beauty.
Red Russian spies appear not just in the fictional movie and comic book world but also in the ‘real’ news media.
After her arrest by the FBI for her part in the Illegals Program, Chapman gained celebrity status. Photos of Chapman taken from her Facebook profile appeared on the web, and several videos of her were uploaded to YouTube. Her affiliation with the Russian Federation led at least one media outlet to refer to her as “the Red under the bed.“
In 2012, FBI counter-intelligence chief Frank Figliuzzi said that Chapman almost caught a senior member of President Barack Obama’s cabinet in a honey trap operation. This was reported as a primary motive behind the government’s action to round up the ten-person spy ring in which she was a member. The plan reportedly would have involved Chapman seducing her target before extracting information from him.
As a model, Chapman posed on the cover of Russian version of Maxim magazine in Agent Provocateur lingerie. The magazine included Chapman in its list of “Russia’s 100 sexiest women.”
As I was browsing I noticed Madonna’s latest disaster of a performance at the EuroVision… the online media were not very kind to her stating she needed more than a prayer.
Then I noticed the eyepatch … more one eyed symbolism … and the crown … of the queen of heaven.
Apparently this seems to be part of her new persona Madame X, with the eyepatch emblazoned with a letter ‘X’. Another attempt to keep herself relevant and cool and to bring the past back to life.
“I wanted to be able to go back to that time in my life when I was just starting out in New York and I didn’t care what people thought.”
Which entails that now she craves their attention, their worship having got a taste for it … she needs it in order to survive. The last part of her song entitled Future was … Wake Up! as in opening up an eagle eye perhaps.
Madame X is a freedomfighter ….she boldly states … They are so naive – they think we are not aware of their crimes. We know, but we’re just not ready to act. The storm isn’t in the air, it’s inside of us. I want to tell you about love and loneliness. But it’s getting LATE NOW. Can’t you HEAR outside of your Supreme hoodie, the WIND that’s beginning to HOWL?”
That sounds like fighting talk to me … like she is getting ready to go to war, either that or a bad case of indigestion. The Winds of Chan ge. The above message is on a time loop from Media we hear it repeated over and over so we can’t say we weren’t warned in advance.
In returning to new technology Madonna recently stated that she lost her children to New Media.
“It ended my relationship with them, really. They became totally obsessed with their phones.”
So has New Media become a god that we worship I asked myself. Well yes is the most obvious answer.
There has been an emergence of a new religion across the U.S. and the world. Billions have taken this religion along with their already-held beliefs, practicing both side by side. Most people spend hours every day worshiping and praising this religion’s idols. This new and fast-sweeping religion that we are all a part of is the religion of technology, where people worship the new gods of the internet and the television.
Neil Gaiman’s novel “American Gods” demonstrates this idea of America’s “new gods” perfectly. The central premise of the book is that gods exist because people believe in them, a concept labeled as “thoughtform.” The “old gods,” among the likes of Odin, Ra, Anubis and Anansi, are powerless because no one worships them any longer. Instead, internet and media now rule the country due to people worshiping them instead.
I AM LUCY … and I HAVE MANY FACES AND NAMES, MASS MEDIA … The screen is the altar. I’m the one they sacrifice to. Then till now. Golden Age to Golden Age. They sit side by side, ignore each other, and give it up to me. Now they hold a smaller screen on their lap or in the palm of their hand so they don’t get bored watching the big one. Time and attention, better than lamb’s blood.
So is Neil Gaiman’s premise correct … do we create Gods … bring them to life … into this reality by paying time and attention to them … by turning them into idols … by believing in them … or where they already here all along? My mooney’s on the latter I decided.The world still worships the sun, moon and stars nothing has changed. The five senses or the five pointed star is what this world serves … believing in what it sees and hears from Media.
It brought to my mind a Bible verse about faith:
Hebrews 11 Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
I recalled that I mentioned in my posts earlier this year that the moon in 2019 is taking centre stage.
Maybe the world is moving from male sun worship to goddess moon worship trans sitioning between the two faces of Janus.
The moon arguably only shows us its good side. The half of our satellite that always faces Earth shows off wide, smooth basins, whereas the far side of the moon is dramatically different and marked up with numerous craters.
The Moon is always watching or observing us with her one good eye and is watching us more closely than we thought.
The European Space Agency (ESA) said on February 20, 2019, that 20-year-old data from the space-based SOHO observatory has revealed an amazing fact about the Earth. The data have shown that the outermost part of Earth’s atmosphere – called its geocorona – extends beyond the moon’s orbit. (2020 vision)
What if the Truman Show was right and the moon is actually an orb servation deck watching us 24/7 … recording us on its hard core drive … as evidence to be rewound and played back at a later date to accuse us with.
Maybe that is why one of the names for AI is Siri or Iris. As I was mulling this over eye patches popped into my mind.
Now where have I seen another woman with an eyepatch in the media lately … oh yes I remember.
Tania Mallet, best known for her role in the 19 64 (88) James Bond film Goldfinger, has died at the age of 77.
“We are very sorry to hear that Tania Mallet who played Tilly Masterson in GOLDFINGER has passed away. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this sad time,” said the James Bond Twitter account.
Tilly Masterson is the sister of Jill Masterson, murdered by the Auric Goldfinger henchman Oddjob after Jill, the mistress of Goldfinger has a fling with Bond. She shows up in Switzerland seeking to avenge her sister’s death and joins forces with Bond until Tilly too is murdered by a Oddjob.
Unlike many other “Bond girls,” the elegant Tilly Masterson does not swoon over Bond. Armed with her own rifle, she seems to find him an irritant until he unmasks her true intent.
Mallet was a first cousin to actress Helen Mirren. She was born in Blackpool, England, to British father Henry Mallet and Russian mother Olga Mironoff, a sibling of Mirren’s father.
Mallet was working as a model when she was cast as Masterson by producer Albert “Cubby” Broccoli. She had auditioned for the role of Tatiana Romanova in 1963’s From Russia With Love, but lost the part to Daniela Bianchi even though Mallet was of Russian descent.
Helen Mirren said in a statement in People magazine, “I was very sad to lose my cousin Tania this week. Tania was my aunt Olga’s daughter, and my sister [Katherine “Kate” Mirren] and I grew up with her. She showed her Russian heritage in her very beautiful bone structure and eyes, that made her into one of the top models of the early 60s.”
Didn’t Helen star in a film with the same name as Philip K Dick’s book …
The film premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival on 11 September 2015.
Helen plays an army colonel Kat Pow ell who blows up children along with terrorists whilst drinking tea and eating biscuits using remote controlled drones. Red Russian Helen has the ass kicking spy role down to a tea.
and like her Russian cousin she was a decent model as well back in 69.
Rosamund Pike was another woman this year I recalled who wore an eyepatch playing war correspondent Marie Colvin.
Rosemund is well known for starring roles in Love in a Cold Climate (2001), and she received international recognition for her film debut as another Bond girl Miranda Frost in Die Another Day (2002).
Pike has recorded voicework for a lead role in the film Jackboots on Whitehall and lent her voice to a new series of James Bond audio-books, narrating The Spy Who Loved Me. In 2010 Pike played the part of Pussy Galore in the BBC Radio 4 adaptation of Fleming’s Goldfinger. In 2011, Pike played the part of Kate Sumner in the Bond spoof film Johnny English Reborn,
Pike turned down the role of Jess Barrett in Focus (2015) Wu Wu that went to Margot Robbie.
Was considered for either Emma Frost or M oira M cTaggart in X-Men: First Class and struck gold with landing the role of Gone Girl in 2014.
Didn’t Madonna sing the soundtrack for the Bond film Die Another Day… and as usual wasn’t it packed full of mind control and occult references in which she invoked the name of god and disappeared … like a gone girl. The video referenced some of the past Bond movies and a Jill Masterson gold statue even appeared.
Madonna also starred alongside Bond and Pike as fencing instructor Verity … dressed in black leather … very Russian spy like … she mentions that Pike won the GOLD medal at the Olympics.
So Bond girls, Russian spies, Krazy Kats and atomic secrets connect them all together. Rose mund’s next two films are in keeping with the same theme … The Informer and Radioactive.
Helen Mirren is also starring once again as a Red Queen or is it an Empress Cat or Babylion the Great.
The four-part series “delves into the politically tumultuous and sexually charged court of the most powerful female monarch in history,” according to Sky’s blurb for the show. It also describes its central character as “strong-minded, independent, brilliantly intelligent and sexually liberated, she was the definition of the modern woman.”
The period of Catherine the Great’s rule, the Cat her inian Era, is considered the Golden Age of Russia
I prefer Ivan the Great myself although his sense of humour is at times questionable and undoubtably politically incorrect.
I suppose what Media is saying I thought to myself is that the age of man is over and that the god of this age/world is now a woman. Kat the Grrreat (Frosty Ice Queen) killed her husband/brother and took the throne for herself mirroring the tv shows House of Cards and Game of Thrones.
In House of Cards in the last episode she finally gets her hands on the nuclear codes so as she can detonate an atomic bomb.
This transition to goddess worship has actually been here before in fact she never left. We are just going back to the beginning and Madonna dances all over this in her new song performed in Israel.
I hope you know (know)
My life is gold (gold)
I drip that ice (ice)
Not everyone is coming to the future
Not everyone is learning from the past
Not everyone can come into the future
Not everyone that’s here is gonna last (gonna last)
It’s the future where we come from, bein’ stars
It’s the future where we come from, bein’ hard
It’s the future where we come from, beat ’em all
It’s the future where we come from, bein’ boss
It’s the future where you gotta pay the cost (the future)
It’s the future where you come from, bein’ lost (the future)
It’s the future, crucifixion on a cross
But you know that I’ma rise above it all, yeah
Rise like a phoenix or a dragon you mean from the ashes
Jessica Chastain has revealed the inspiration behind her take on the Dark Phoenix “alien”, explaining that Tilda Swinton is her muse for anything out-of-this-world. A solid choice.
“I am a shape shifter, so I am supposed to look like an elevated form of a human being,” Jessica said. “The one person I think of that way is Tilda Swinton. I’m not convinced she’s a human being. I think she is ruling over some planet somewhere like the goddess she is.”
Tilda is famous for being androgynous playing both male and female roles and of course playing the ice queen on her throne.
and playing a fallen angel who does not agree with God’s plan of salvation for mankind … who insteads wishes to bring hell on earth and watch it burn.
The Beast blowing from the East came to mind
Meanwhile over on the small screen media Game of Thrones finally ended after 8 years which is kind of like a time loop coming full circle. In the end the Dragon Queen showed her true colours by burning the world to the ground and then demonstrated her desire to reset and rebuild another.
‘They can live in my new world or die in the old’ … the Dragon Queen
However John is having none of it instead he leads the free folk on an Exodus out of Babylion. It turns out he did know something after all … the way out … beyond the dimensional wall and through the exit door/ stargate.
And another female’s rule has ended in tears in the news media however she leaves behind a legacy for the future.
May introduced the Investigatory Powers Act, aptly nicknamed the snooper’s (spy) charter, during her time as home secretary, and her time as prime minister has not changed her attack-cat stance on internet surveillance. After the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London Bridge, May continued on her warpath to decrypt the internet and make our data security weak and wobbly
In truth the only strength and stability May has ever demonstrated is in her commitment to bring internet security to its knees – exposing our data to hackers and the government. She seems all too keen to bring us closer to the world Orwell dreamed up.
Big Brother/Sister are not coming they are already here I declared inwardly to myself and have been since the beginning. Maybe Gaiman is right the more this world worships them the more power it gives them. Maybe they keep this world enslaved through lust for power, money and sex and now they want people to merge with them and become trans human. However haven’t they already merged with us a crazy long time ago?
Demiurge (in some theological systems) is a heavenly being, subordinate to the Supreme Being, that is considered to be the orb server/controller of the material world and hostile to all that is purely spiritual. Keepers of the LAW they are everywhere.
I have always thought that AI is like the lizard side of our brain, cold, unemotional, no empathy, no emotion a killer king/queen.They are like alien parasites who feed of our negative energy and who not only rule our external world but who also hide inside our dna, inside our memory code.
Maybe that is what the underlying message behind the big screen media film The Matrix was all about … casting out the Bond spyware woman and her son 007 from our dna … the hidden spy within.
Maybe then we should switch frequency by no longer worshipping Media Matrix and instead walking and living by faith in the real God not the artificial one.
Another headline then popped up on my laptop and once again it was all about grrrumpy queen cats.
Grumpy Cat Is Dead. Long Live Grumpy Cat.
“Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere,” her family wrote in an emotional statement posted on Twitter.
Grumpy Kat Queen is not dead of curse she is only pretending she is faking it as usual.
Mmm death and resurrection like a cat with nine lives then my mind wandered back to the Sherlock Holmes meme … the grumpy cat was the queen of me mes and what was the storyline in Sherlock
The Beast From the East with Love doggy style of course …
Mmm weird dance moves again kind of like Shiva/Parvati and her dance of destruction.
I needed a break from all this so I decided to watch a film on the big screen media … bad move.
In Captain Marvel Nick Fury got his eye scratched out by a Krazy shapeshifting red Kat who had an atomic energy cube hidden within … so he had to wear an eyepatch … who writes these tails.
Then I switched over to the small screen media and watched a c(h)at show to unwind … from all those scary cat claws uh no not again.
Running into someone who once dated your current partner is awkward. Running into someone who dated your now-husband on live TV is even more awkward. That was the case for Joe Jonas’ wife Sophie Twister Turner and ex Taylor Swallow Swift, who both appeared on Friday night’s episode of The Graham Norton Show. The two even rocked matching bangs, thanks to Sophie’s recent haircut.
Turner appeared on the show alongside her X-Men: Dark Phoenix co-stars, while Swift was promoting her new album. Taking to Instagram following the appearance, the 29-year-old singer wrote to Instagram: “Feeling pretty lucky that I got to be a guest on the same night as @sophiet, Michael Fassbender, @Jessicachastain and @Jamesmcavoyrealdeal – They were all so sweet, now I want to just walk around yelling GO SEE DARK PHOENIX.“
After all that Katastrophe I decided it was time for a cat nap surely I am safe from Media when snoozing … or perhaps not …remember me?
Wait a minute Kitty Kat … I remember you its all coming back we were in Paris … there was a tree …. we were having a picnic by the river and then a snake appeared.
So is Media alive and if so what is she telling us … I leave that up to you I am away to walk the dog … hopefully nobody is watching if I don’t pick up the poo.
