Or a “Starchild Is Born” .
Well it look likes SUBhuman was bang on the mark with the comment about the sperm and what would be born at the Olympic Opening Ceremony in London last night .
From Let The Games Begin , a few days ago :
“A few weeks ago, ‘SUBhuman’ made the excellent observation that it looked like a sperm . I have discussed DNA and the Bloodline theory ad infinitum, and probably bored everyone to death but if this is correct then we maybe seeing a sperm starting Life but for this to happen, there has to be an egg to be fertilised . And for some reason, it reminds me of this image from the original ‘Alien’ film .”
And, as if Danny Boyle was a regular reader of this blog, what do we see .
A Starchild is Born !
Actually the birth was very dark, and we have to go to the movie ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ to understand the conception . In ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, Rosemary is raped by the Devil who has come up from wherever he lives and conceives a ‘Child of Satan’ . The ‘Dark Satanic Mills’ section of the ceremony was called ‘Pandemonium’ . This is a reference to the capital of Hell in John Milton’s Paradise Lost . From Wiki :
Pandæmonium is the capital of Hell in the epic poem Paradise Lost by the 17th century English poet John Milton.
“Pandæmonium” (American English “Pandemonium”) stems from Greek “παν”, meaning “all” or “every”, and “δαιμόνιον”, meaning “little spirit” or “little angel”, or, as Christians interpreted it, “little daemon”, and later, “demon” (thus roughly translated as “All Demons”); or it can be interpreted as Παν-δαιμον-ειον = “all-demon-place”. It is the name invented by John Milton for the capital of Hell, “the High Capital, of Satan and his Peers”, built by the fallen angels at the suggestion of Mammon at the end of Book I, Paradise Lost (1667). Book II begins with the debate among the “Stygian Council” in the council-chamber of Pandæmonium. The demons built it in about an hour, but it far surpassed all human palaces or dwellings; it may have been small, however, as the demons are described as shrinking from their titanic size in order to fit in.
Note the reference to their size . As we have seen, Giants have been popping up all over the place and with the Giant Baby we have another to add to the collection .
Back to the Opening Ceremony . For this section, the Olympic Stadium symbolically was Hell and the sperm of the Devil/Satan/Saturn rose up from the Volcano/Underworld to fertilise the egg and so Rosemary’s Baby was born – the Starchild . This was the main intention of the ritual – to conceive and birth the child .
Before, I discuss who or what was born last night I will again point out the connection with the Ceremony and the events in Aurora exactly 7 days previously. I just happened to see the time in Britain that the Egg was fertilised and it was exactly 21:21 – the mirror of 12 dead and the ‘In the Midnight Hour’ of the shooting . But the more obvious link is seen with the inclusion of the Voldemoort Giant in Stratford – ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ . And he did literally, as he rose from the Underworld .
I would also suggest Aurora is also connected by its obvious connotation with ‘The Light’ as symbolised by the Olympic Torch . And, I observe that Danny Boyle insisted the event should start as ‘The Dark Night Rose’ at 9pm .
Anyway, back to the Giant child . My impression is that the child is a girl and we are seeing the birth of a new Goddess – Queen Isis . The hidden references to Isis were apparent from the start, with the video journey of the Olympic flame along the River Isis from its source to Stratford . As you may have noticed, there were many ‘Queen’ connections :
- Queen Elizabeth opened the Games . One of the names of Isis is ‘The Female of the Throne’ .
- She was seen with James Bond in the Skyfall video as she became ‘The Woman who fell to Earth’ .
- The singing of ‘God Save The Queen’ (‘Long to reign over us’ – not at all hive mind) .
- Bohemian Rhapsody by ‘Queen’ .
- ‘God Save The Queen’ by the Sex Pistols .
And just to keep me happy, there were a few Sirius syncs thrown in as well . Firstly, the two Royal Dog Star corgis (Sirius A & B ?) and next the Star, which the cameras seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time showing during the short David Bowie clip of Star Man . I am reminded of his role in ‘The Man who Fell to Earth’ who of course is Lucifer – see James Bond parachute ‘Skyfall’ .
The next element to the Opening Ceremony was the numerology which was obsessed with 7 and in particular 7/7 . I don’t know a lot about numerology but I can see ‘pattern’ and this is seen firstly, in the date 27/7 which is the 77 energy x 2 . I doubt the date of the Aurora tragedy, with 7 days between the events and a similar date 20/7 was a coincidence . There was a remembrance to the victims of the 7/7 bombings in London and also, the 007 link with James Bond . And if we haven’t seen enough 7s, there were also the 7 giant Towers during Pandemonium and at the end, 7 teenagers lit the Cauldron .
As we knew before, during ‘The Green and Pleasant Land’ section and the ‘Jerusalem’ hymn the Stadium became Zion/Home . I have discussed Zion a lot so I won’t go into great detail but I would suggest it is not of this planet . The description of Zion as the place of the origin of the physical universe fits in with the Womb/Egg theme and Isis as well, as one of her many names is The Mother of the World . I was also struck by the comment made by Jacques Rogge, the head of the IOC who said : “In a sense, the Olympics are coming Home” . The Olympics or the Olympians ?
Last night’s ceremony could keep me busy for months and there are quite a few lesser factors which I have omitted . If I get the inspiration, I may do another post on these elements and I’m sure there’s plenty I’ve missed as well . A few days ago, I wrote that the Olympic Opening Ceremony would probably be the safest place in the world as nothing was going to be allowed to disrupt the Mass, for want of a better word, and hopefully, now you can see why .
Anyway, the Starchild has now been born and if you thought things were weird up till now, I think it may get even stranger . But look on the bright side, I didn’t see Wenlock or Mandeville and there was no ‘Alien Invasion’ !
