The twilight language explores hidden meanings and synchromystic connections via onomatology (study of names) and toponymy (study of place names). This blog further investigates "name games" and "number coincidences" found in news and history. Examinations are also found in my book The Copycat Effect (NY: Simon and Schuster, 2004).
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."
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.
