Bane/Bain Bursts Bare (Part 3)

By Loren Coleman ©2012

Do synchronistic events reveal underlying patterns? Are there meaningful coincidences? Does acausal parallelism exist? There are no coincidences. Everything is a coincidence. What does the data show? What do you think?

"If there is an underlying oneness of all things, it does not matter where we begin, whether with stars, or laws of supply and demand, or frogs, or Napoleon Bonaparte. One measures a circle, beginning anywhere." 
~ Charles Fort

At this Twilight Language blog on Sunday July 15, the topic was first broached, concerning Bane/Bain (Part 1), then followed again with more here (Part 2). 

Soon, we all were awash in a sea of conjectures, speculations and spoofs as the news and near-news organizations burst bare with their fascination with Bane/Bain, from the likes of Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart, Drudge, and Rush Limbaugh. It has been quite a week of many discussions about Bane/Bain.

Now that the date of the release of The Dark Knight Rises and this visual Bane is upon us, let's look at the fact the film is opening on July 20, 2012.  7.20.2012.  20.7.2012.

What are the significant memorable themes associated with past July 20ths? There are two major motifs that leap forth from history: space and assassinations.

The Masonic flag that went to the Moon.

Is there any more important incident, historically, for Earthlings than the simple fact this is the anniversary of humans landing on the Moon? In 1969, on July 20th, Apollo 11 made the first successful manned landing in the Sea of Tranquility on the Moon. Freemasons Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, complete with a Masonic flag, became the first humans to walk on the Moon. This is also the anniversary date in 1976 of Viking 1, an American craft, landing on Mars. To continue the space theme, Star Trek's Scottie, James Doohan (born 1920), died on July 20, 2005.

Assassinations have been associated with July 20th, as well. In 1944, Adolf Hitler survived an assassination attempt led by German Army Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, known as Operation Valkyrie, at Wolfsschanze (Wolf's Lair or Wolf's Fort) in the Masurian woods, near Rastenburg, East Prussia, now Ketrzyn, Poland. In 1951, King Abdullah I of Jordan, a Freemason, who had worked directly with British hero and Freemason T. E. Lawrence of Arabia, was assassinated by a 21-year-old Palestinian, Mustafa Ashu, while attending Friday prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem. The mysterious death, some say assassination, of the American actor and martial artist Bruce Lee occurred on July 20, 1973. This is the date in 1977, on which the CIA released documents under the Freedom of Information Act revealing it had engaged in mind control experiments, under Project MK-Ultra (1953-1973).

Will any events take place on July 20, 2012, of any import?

Dates of movie releases have had strange links.

The day of neo-Nazi Breivik's massacre in Norway (July 22, 2011) was the day of the release of the film Captain America (July 22, 2011), with the first scene taking place in Norway, to the sound of Nazis' rapid fire machine gunning. A bizarre coincidence, to say the least.

Batman Begins was released on June 15, 2005 in the United States. 

Spanish police, in a series of concurrent raids throughout Spain on June 15, 2005, arrested 17 alleged Islamic extremists; 11 were associated with Abu Musab al-Zarquawi, and 5 were connected to the Madrid train bombing of March 11, 2004.

The Dark Knight was released on July 18, 2008, in North America.

The largest mobile crane in the nation collapsed at a Houston, Texas, oil refinery on July 18, 2008, killing four workers and injuring six others in the latest of several fatal accidents that have raised concerns about the safety of construction cranes. Meanwhile, on this same date, another crane was in the news at the site of the former Twin Towers in New York City. The so-called "Survivors' Stairway" at the World Trade Center site was moved on July 18, 2008 down to bedrock within the foundations of the Memorial at Ground Zero.

What will happen on July 20, 2012?

Now we know...

"I shall be accused of having assembled lies, yarns, hoaxes and superstitions. To some degree I think so, myself. To some degree I do not. I offer the data."

Here is a very recent article concerning strange coincidences in movies...the Bruce Lee reference reminded me of it. Sometimes I wonder who really writes these Cracked articles....

it's not that this planet's events are incomprehensible, only that to comprehend them is too disturbing, and too painful, for the vast majority

america has been making war on its own boys and men for half a century now -- a war much approved (implicitly or otherwise) by the materially-satisfied citizenry

these events are thus inevitable, and in many cases, greatly desired by your "supervisors" -- as they move the sheeple closer to acceptance of an even more entrenched matriarchal police state

the truth hurts, and i dont mean symbolically -- but its better than the consequences of denial

(yes loren i already know, you dont like this comment)

The Joker archetype is key but the rest of the synchronicities threatened to drown this signal in noise.

The key transition age for males is 18-25. Any look at crime data will bear this out. Biology and culture conspire to make this period a boiler-cooker that sends males in crime (& war) or a transition into early adulthood.

The US culture is highly anomic, lacking any rites of passage or even a sense of a meaningful cultural framework. The amorality or its aggressive wars, hyper-capitalism and shallow media are rampant. Domination, submission, breeding, sentimentality are not real values.

The killer was finishing a degree in neuro-psychology which is predicated on an ultra-materialist behaviourist view of consciousness. I have taught such classes and know the bleak selfhood-annihilating of the subject. I'm not saying those theories are wrong but simply that they are lop-sided and arid.

Plenty of neuropsych students end up in eastern mysticism because it deals with the void that is existence, that is mind, that is self.

In my early twenties I got through my shyness by dying my hair red and getting involved in street protests and conflicts with the police. I wanted to express all the petty boiling anger of my upbringing, all the hurt of loneliness, my pathetic rage at society. But most of all I wanted to express an unmistakable act of will.

I'm glad I live in Canada where access to M-16 knock-offs with 100 round drums is impossible. I'm not 'anti-gun' but just being honest.

By the time I was in my late twenties I had a girl-friend, respected job and a car. But in-between 20 and 30 I looked into the abyss. We all do because the abyss is real. Meaning is artificial. Religion is vestigial. Void bookends this existence.

The art I enjoyed was Nihilistic-Nietzschean: hitman, porn, vampires, techno, first-person shooters. The rush of male will-power that flares in the darkness.

Crowley said in the Book of Lies that when you look in the abyss you must either laugh, cry or transcend. Boys don't cry - and even fewer transcend. Look at the smiling mug shots lately. Why so serious about this hallucination in the void we call 'life'?

A century ago Andre Breton defined `the simplest Surrealist act' as `going into the street, revolver in hand, and shooting at random into the crowd'. No meaning just raw will to power. God is Dead and now our temples are movie theatres.

Perhaps all this syncromysticism is overcompensation to the meaninglessness manifested in this type of killing. We are a fun-house reflection of the same quest for meaning conducted by reporters and police desperately profiling the killer. For many males 18-25 the void is roiling, intoxicating reality and Nihilism-Nietzschean-Surrealism can seem the only worthy response. In turn, syncromystics respond with the surrealism techinique of association and coincidence.

When marriage, kids and a job seem like impossible dreams you can just fire bullets into a crowd and marry a princess chosen for you by Fate itself in a ceremony of blood and transgression. The introverted will finally explodes into public action. “Now all you slaves will know my name and shudder before it!”

Sad, pathetic and true.

Luther Bliss writes: "The key transition age for males is 18-25."

While that may be true for what you see as transitional, actually the major "turning point" for males occurs sometime between 10-14 years of age, with the imprinting of significant milestones, life interests, and behavior patterns for men then.

Explore the life of any male, and you will discover at least one important remembered turning point happening between 10-14.
