SET THE CLOCK BACK 100 YEARS
As we rip another page from the calendar and celebrate the coming of a new year, I was reflective – more so than being celebratory. I don’t know if it is because I am getting older or my kidneys can’t take the binge drinking at New Year’s parties anymore – but for me, feeling lucky that I made it through 2012 is what is important to me this year. I felt that 2012 was simply the most horrifying year I have ever seen in my life. Regardless of what people may say about so called “fear mongering,” I can attest to the scary nature of news stories from 2012 – from animal and bird die offs, to human beings eating each other to a mall shooting near my home and a tragic school shooting – I really don’t think I can ponder a time where watching the news made me nauseous.
It made you wonder if the Mayan calendar watchers were right. Now it’s all academic and – with a sigh – we can all have our “I told you so” moments. However, we must not let our guard down and think that there aren’t plans in the works to change the way we live here in the United States and the rest of the world.
I know that now there seems to be a small bit of trepidation now that anyone wants to warn you of “things to come” because perhaps it may sound a bit hollow to sound the alarm when there was so much fan fare and big scares from the constant push of a Mayan apocalypse.
So I want to warn you in a different way of what is to come. Perhaps I can do a bit of an experiment. The only problem is I will need to take out a calendar and where it says 2013 I want to remove the number two and zero and replace it with the numbers one and nine.
This way, the calendar will read 1913, one hundred years in the past. We must imagine in our minds that date from one hundred years ago and ponder the concepts of eternal recurrence. I know that during past shows prior to the so called Mayan apocalypse I spoke of time synchronicities and the idea that as we pass through the dark rift there have been theorists who have expressed the possibility of a re-synching of time and how the echoes in transit may remind us of a past event or even past history.
Sometimes it is as if we relive many moments in history and more so when it comes to politics because it seems that politicians seem to want to take old techniques, put a fresh coat of paint on them and re-sell them as some contemporary concept.
This is similar to what I believe Friedrich Nietzsche spoke about when he expressed is views on eternal recurrence.
Quote:“What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you in your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you, all in the same succession and sequence-even this spider and this moonlight between the trees, and even this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence is turned upside down again and again, and you with it, speck of dust!‘” — Nietzsche
Following in Nietzsche’s concept I could ask What if a demonic power were to steal your government when it is at its most vulnerable? What if the demonic power brought back such things as cannibalism, genocide, genetic directives and child sacrifice as a way to gain control of a frightened populace? It would create tried and true results — all in the same succession and sequence as other moments in history like the times of Hitler’s Weimar, Soviet Russia, Mao’s China, and the Argentine Dirty war?
