Loughner & Mars

The news is filled with the Red Planet landing, and with killer Jared Loughner. They would seem to be two separate threads that have little to do with each other. But we have to remind ourselves that they naturally overlap. The Mars lander, Curiosity, touches down early on the morning of August 6. The next day, Loughner allegedly is due to plea guilty to the murder of bystanders during his attempted assassination of a Member of Congress, who happened to be married to an astronaut.

Back in January 2011, I posted some thoughts, after the assassination attempt on January 8, 2011, of Representative Gabrielle Giffords. The story had many angles, and these were three of them:

"Mind Control" Mass Shooter: Jared Loughner

Loughner: A Copycat?

The Loughner Space Coincidences

Under the "Space Coincidence" postings, I detailed these groupings:
1) NASA Obsession
2) Giffords' NASA Astronaut Husband
3) Giffords' Husband's Astronaut Twin
4) "Erad"
5) The Very Strange Name Game Coincidence of the Two Dr. David Bowmans

Dr. David Bowman of 2001 and 2010.

Please click here to learn more about those "coincidences."

"What is government if words have no meaning?" 
Jared Lee Loughner asked 
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., in 2007.

So what is the meaning of Loughner? It appears to be a Americanized version of the German name Lachner, which is an occupational name for a physician, Middle High German lachenære "healer" (as in Leach), which issues from the "topographic name for someone who lived by a pond or lake, from Middle High German lache." The leeches found in aquatic locales, of course, are associated with and employed in the medieval medical practice of "bleeding," often by applying leeches to the sick person (source: Dictionary of American Family Names, Oxford University Press). "Lough" is the Irish word for "loch" or "lake," so the origins of the name is decidedly watery in nature.

Was Loughner, literally, engaging in a "bleeding"?

One last "coincidence," sent in by aferrismoon: "If you go to the map of the Safeway on N. Oracle Road [site of Loughner's assassination attempt] you will find there is a road crossing called W. GIACONDA, which also skirts the shopping complex. This is odd as you posted about Mona Lisa [a/k/a La Giaconda], the post after your first Loughner posting."

Above is a link to a post I wrote last year. This post had a life of it's own, and stemmed out of comparing two movies, 2001 and PLANET OF THE APES. Somehow this lead me to the Gifford's shooting.

I feel strongly that there is a strange resonance to the TWILIGHT LANGUAGE, it emerges around important events.

I agree with Mike. This almost feels like an underscoring of how,if we as a species are to survive and become a true space civilization, we need to find ways to eradicate the destructive behavior of people like Loughner and Holmes.

Also, I couldn't help noticing how in the latest released image of Jared, he shows a very clear scarred concussion in the right fronto-parietal part of his head. I wonder if it was sellf-inflicted.

Danny Boyle used a clip of
Charlton Heston kissing the girl ape in a clip from the movie
in the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games,oddly enough.

Also, the craft that delivered Curiosity to Mars is named Odyssey.

I noticed from day 1 of this event that the "Safeway" supermarket logo is an optical illusion representing Pisces. I'm wondering if anybody has commented on this.
