Gateway Arch to Hell: Ferguson in Trident Times

Ferguson is a Scottish-Irish surname and given name. The surname is a patronymic form of the personal name Fergus. The name Fergus is derived from the Gaelic elements fear ("man") and gus ("vigor," "force," or "choice"). Thus the name "Ferguson" literally means the "son of a man of force/vigor" (the "male offspring of a strong powerful father").

I wrote the above, regarding another matter, on May 11, 2013. 

In 2014, the word "Ferguson" now symbolizes deeper meanings. It may soon mean a time of hellish behaviors, across the USA. Yes, I am not the only one predicting that "all hell may break loose," as The Economist considered the coming days.

On Sunday night, November 23, 2014, protesters wrote The Hunger Games-inspired graffiti on a local St. Louis landmark, which read: "If we burn, you burn with us."

It was scrawled on an arch in the Shaw neighborhood of the Missouri city. The slogan is from Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1. The arch that was vandalized is known as the Flora Place Gates and was built in 1897, helping sparking the development of Shaw, Missouri. Nearly a century later the neighbourhood was identified as a historic district because of its period architecture. Source.

FTP means "F*ck The Pigs."

Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old black adolescent, was shot (reportedly six times) and killed on Saturday, August 9, 2014, by Darren Wilson, a police officer, in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. The St. Louis County grand jury made a decision and announced on Monday, November 24, 2014, that there is no indictment of Officer Wilson. The predicted outcome of this decision is nationwide demonstrations, with some rioting and civil unrest.

Ferguson had its start in 1855 when William B. Ferguson deeded 10 acres (4.0 ha) of land to the Wabash Railroad in exchange for a new depot and naming rights. The settlement that sprang up around the depot was called Ferguson Station. Ferguson was the first outside station connected to St. Louis, Missouri. Ferguson was incorporated as a city in 1894.

Others have seen synchromystic links to Ferguson.
Ferguson, Missouri (northeast St. Louis), sits precisely midway between Cairo, Illinois ("Little Egypt") and Hannibal, Missouri (the Hannibal name is related to Baal as well as the archetypal enemy of ancient Rome). Ferguson is also precisely in the middle of two alignments of Route 66, the I-270 frontage road to the north, and I-70 to the south. Source.

Little Egypt is an area steeped in mysticism.

Little Egypt is a regional name for southern Illinois. The most populated city is Belleville. 
The nickname "Egypt" may have arisen in the 1830s, when poor harvests in the north of the state drove people to Southern Illinois to buy grain. Others say it was because the land of the great Mississippi and Ohio River valleys were like that of Egypt's Nile delta. The nickname may date back to 1818, when a huge tract of land was purchased at the confluence of the rivers and its developers named it Cairo. Today, the town of Cairo still stands on the peninsula where the Ohio River joins the Mississippi. Other settlements in the area were also given names with Egyptian, Greek or Middle Eastern origins: The Southern Illinois University Salukis sports teams and towns such as Metropolis, Thebes, Dongola, Palestine, Lebanon, New Athens, Sparta, and Karnak show the influence of classical culture....Egyptian names were concentrated in towns of Little Egypt but also appeared in towns further south. For instance, about 100 miles (200 km) south of Cairo, along the Mississippi, lies Memphis, Tennessee, named after the Egyptian city on the Nile. Source.
The skyward symbol of the Ferguson area is the Gateway Arch.

St. Louis Gateway Arch was covertly blown up in the science fiction film, Sucker Punch (2011), and it served overtly as a 2046 landmark in Syfy's Defiance (2013-2014).

Eero Saarinen working with a model of the arch in 1957.
St. Louis's Gateway Arch is very relevant too (via Ferguson, of course). Note that the City is known as "Gateway to the West." So, you know where that goes. The west = Osiris = Underworld portal = Gate of Hell. ~  Source. 

Eero Saarinen's futuristic designs are significant and iconic. His TWA JFK Flight Center opened in 1962 and has been somewhat preserved in the redesigned JetBlue JFK T5, which retains parts of the Saarinen terminal (head house).

In discussing the significance of all the tridents being seen in 2014, via various news stories, this is intriguing:
I'd [Goro would] say, [this] is at the core of what the trident motif alludes to...The opening of the Gates of Hell. Source.
Some ideas about the Gateway Arch are far from the mainstream, of course. Take, for example, the Remove The Veil insight that...

The St Louis Arch is a Solar Oriented Masonic Death Memorial for a land (West = Amurru = America) destined to become “Wilderness,” i.e. Desert. The Fleur de Lys (Louisiana Purchase) symbolizes Father, Mother Son, the Occult “Trinity.” Source.
[More about fleur-de-lis ("flowers of the lilies") here.]

Then, there's the link to Freemasonry too:
The Gateway Arch is said to be an inverted catenary, because its curve arches up instead of hangs down. As Robert Hooke (essentially) wrote in 1675 about the relationship between a perfect arch and a hanging chain: “As hangs the chain, so stands the arch.”
Perhaps coincidentally, from a purely symbolic perspective, in Freemasonry one finds the astrologically-based Royal Arch of Heaven. Alfred E. Waite, in his New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, specifically mentions the Catenarian Arch:
“There are two points from which this form of arch can be approached; the first is that of architecture, and it is proverbial in this respect that there is no curve in Masonry which approaches the catenary in strength; as regards the second, it is summarized in the simple statement that in its due and proper arrangement every Royal Arch Chapter approaches as nearly as possible the form of a catenarian arch. Of all that arises herefrom and belongs hereto it is not possible to speak: the motto is: Come and See.” Source.
The Freemasonic Royal Arch.

Update: By pure coincidence, after I posted this, Theo Paijmans tweeted the above image, showing that this royal arch was used on the "Masonic Apron presented to Gen. Washington by Madame LaFayette."

This brings forth another view:
The trident - at once a symbol of disintegrating fire/lightning and of gnashing teeth - is a liminal (threshold) symbol. To put it differently, the teeth are the gatekeepers of the mouth - one of the sacred "nine bodily gates" in Tantric sex-magic. The teeth/mouth are a gateway into the digestive system, which facilitates the breakdown of matter for use by the body. Source.

Thoughts have been shared about how close to home this is:
One synchronicity, though: the trident is the symbol of the university where I [Kenn Thomas] work. I live near the university, home and office near the rioting, although not quite in Ferguson. Source.
How about all with the name Ferguson popping up?
Marienne Ferguson, Jewish woman who spoke with Prince Charles in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, provoking his slander of Putin, comparing him to Adolf Hitler.
Asia Leeshawn Ferguson, decapitated by Batman the Ride.
Daniel Ferguson, a victim of the Ford Hood shooting by Ivan Lopez.... Source.

On Saturday, June 28, 2008, at Six Flags Over Georgia, 17-year-old Asia Leeshawn Ferguson of Springfield, South Carolina, scaled two six-foot fences and passed through restricted areas posted as dangerous to visitors. Ferguson jumped the fences and was then decapitated by the Batman roller coaster. Source
Where is all of this leading?
Look closer to home at Ferguson, Missouri. We all better start paying attention. We all better get hip to the seriousness of these matters. Source.
Is it a bit of a sad irony that the line from Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s 1970 hit Ohio – “Tin soldiers and Nixon’s comin’ …” could apply today, as Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon deploys National Guard troops into the fractured St. Louis suburb of Ferguson? Source.
Now the future begins, in earnest....

Even the Pinkertons make an appearance:

"Securitas, a security firm that employs 1,600 private guards around St. Louis, says it contracted out the last of its personnel two weeks ago to protect malls, banks, pharmaceutical corporations, power plants, and other large businesses, some of which are based in Clayton.
The corporate bulwark extends online; Pinkerton, a subsidiary of Securitas, is monitoring Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat for potentially menacing references to its clients —mostly “large, blue-chip companies,” according to Steve Ringhofer, the director of the firm’s St. Louis office."

August 9th is the date of the Tate murders by the Family.

Oddly have posted about the connexion between Charles Augustus Lindbergh [Spirit of St.Louis] and Charles Manson

Anyhow Hell-tear Skelter

You referenced "come and see"....Missouri is the "Show Me State."

On a side note...FERGUSON is the surname of my husband's grandmother. Even further that grandmother had a daughter (my in-law) who had a maiden name of "MANCIN" though spelled differently.

And on a more of a side, side note, regarding the Louisiana Purchase, LAFAYETTE, etc., I met a very special man in New Orleans this past August. (Loren, I will have to email you his paper he wrote). He had found the second plate marking France's claim to the land with the inscription "A Miotte Le 7 de Marse 1743." This plate predated the Verendrye plate by 23 days. Long story short, he is disillusioned with museums, the government and especially the French government and takes the plate (recently, mind you) and flies over the area where it was found with three bags (one filled with the real plate) and throws it out the plane.

That plate indicated claim by the French on behalf of the King in some of the same areas we are talking about here......

Oh, and not related....remember I learned I was born at 2:37 am at St. Johns (I was adopted and didn't have certificates)....Guess what???? My biological father died in PA on 2/3/77. I have now concluded that "I'm not really here." :)

Trident pointing upward = peace.
Trident pointing downward = war.
War or peace.
Truth or consequences.

By the way another top financial official became dead. This pass Thursday the Senior vice president of Mass Mutual Melissa Millan age 54 was stab in chest while jogging near her home in Simsbury CT. No suspects at this time.

Interesting indeed..
I wonder the connection of Little Egypt, The Knights of the Golden Circle
And the Egyptian Goddess Neith : Neith was a goddess of war and of hunting and had as her symbol, two arrows crossed over a shield ( wiki ) I find it intriguing that the Grand Jury’s decision was arrived in the Solar sign of Sagittarius . And of course Katniss of the Hunger Games as the archer as well…
Hmmmm intriguing indeed

Interesting! The gateway to the West being the gateway to hell regarding Ferguson... Today the Sun is conjunct the fixed star Antares which is called "The watcher of the West" beginning the stellium of planets in conjunction is Mercury, the Joker of the Zodiac. The full moon in illumination highlights this entire event. In my website post today I discussed a fork in the road, tides turning, karmic lessons etc.. All related. (Astrosync.Net) Additionally the full moon is in Gemini conj the part of fortune (the literal turning point in astrology) and Gemini is ruled by Joker Mercury.
