To make any sense of this article, it’s probably best if I explain my train of thought.
All my life I have had a connection with South Africa by a six degrees of separation type link. For example, the Crystal warehouse where I worked for ten years was owned by white South Africans.
Some will be familiar with the shenanigans involving an individual called Patrick Soon Shiong, who is one of these mysterious hi tech billionaires who have materialised. There are no patients in Ilford. And on a tangent, there are no Space X offices in Houston, it would seem.
I have also become interested in Elon Musk and his connection with the space programme. To explain my thinking, I think the space programme, MK Ultra experiments, hi tech wizardry and the weirder end of medical research effect consciousness. And that pre-puberty child abuse is also connected in some way to the Space programme.
And looking at both Patrick Soon Shiong and Elon Musk’s Wiki entries, I noticed that they were both born and raised in South Africa before ending up in the United States. My interest is also compounded by my technophobic mistrust of hi tech and I suspect one day, I will wake up and find myself wandering along a beach like Charlton Heston and screaming ‘You Maniacs’.
Which then led into a different type of Mandela Effect. My old school, Lancing College had a link to the African National Congress in South Africa via one of its ‘Old Boys’, Trevor Huddleston who was a white Anglican Bishop who supported the Black freedom movement in South Africa.
And so I was aware of Nelson Mandela before he became an international figure. But as I’ve wandered through the maze, I’ve wondered more about the similarity in looks between Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama.
One of the reasons for my interest in South Africa and the ANC was because the son of Oliver Tambo, was at the school, the same time as me. Tambo was one of the main figures in the ANC during the Apartheid struggle. Archbishop Desmond Tutu was a friend of Huddleston’s as well. Anyway, here is a combined pic of Desmond Tutu and Oliver Tambo. Tutu on the left and Tambo on the right.
On Merovee, doppelgangers are grist to the mill but then my ‘research’ – it’s googling really – into Trevor Huddleston took a weirder turn than normal.
Here is a pic of a young Trevor Huddleston at Lancing College on top of a grassy knoll.
Glancing at the pic, I thought I know you and why do I know you ? Anyway, the next day a familiar face popped out at me who is also connected with a grassy knoll.
Lee Harvey Oswald.
My immediate reaction was ‘No – this can’t be’ but the more I’ve looked at the combined pics of Oswald and Huddleston, the more they merge into one. Again, maybe it’s just me.
And nothing to do with the ANC, which sounds like Ankh, here is the statue of professional footballer Christiano Ronaldo and ex professional footballer Niall Quinn.
A variety of reasons occur to me for doppelgangers but I must admit the Oswald / Huddleston pic speaks of something else. Genetics, cloning, DNA tampering, digital wizardry, same soul in a different body, genetic throwback, different time streams or planes of existence or just a random doppelganger effect or something else entirely different. Take your pick.
But I think what is really being asked is ‘Who am I’ and ‘Who are We’ ?
The Mandala Effect.
Sacred Geometry and Mandalas. Not that I understand them but they do talk.
From Creating Mandalas.com :
‘Mandalas are circular designs that reflect the wholeness of the person creating them. According to Carl Jung (pronounced Yoong), ” a mandala is the psychological expression of the totality of the self” (1973: 20). Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist, discovered the significance of mandalas through his own inner work.
“I sketched every morning in a notebook a small circular drawing, a mandala, which seemed to correspond to my inner situation at the time. With the help of these drawings I could observe my psychic transformations from day to day…My mandalas were cryptograms…in which I saw the self—that is, my whole being—actively at work.” (1965: 195-196).
How can it be that circular drawings symbolize the wholeness of a person? Is there some unique quality about circles that makes them important in the psychology of human beings? We know that circles have signified the idea of wholeness among many traditional peoples (Arien, 1992). Why should modern people feel compelled to draw circles and create mandalas? A review of research in psychology and child development suggests that circles are part of the fundamental structuring of personal identity.’
And I haven’t had a decent Van pic in a while.
‘Beyond the body, beyond the sun and stars, past everything you see and yet somehow familiar is an arc of golden light that stretches as you look into a great and shining circle. And all the circle fills with light before your eyes. The edges of the circle disappear, and what is in it no longer contained at all.
The light expands and covers everything, extending to infinity forever shining and with no break or limit anywhere. Within it everything is joined in perfect continuity. Nor is it possible to imagine that anything could be outside, for there is nowhere this light is not.’
And damn it, there is a new Quantum Physics theory that I haven’t heard about. But did the theory exist before I read about it ? 🙂 . After recent events, I don’t discount this.
The Pilot Wave Theory. Reality is Real. Or kind of ! In short, an observer is not needed.
De Broglie-Bohm Theory.
‘The de Broglie–Bohm theory, also known as the pilot-wave theory, Bohmian mechanics, the Bohm (or Bohm’s) interpretation, and the causal interpretation, is an interpretation of quantum theory. In addition to a wavefunction on the space of all possible configurations, it also postulates an actual configuration that exists even when unobserved. The evolution over time of the configuration (that is, the positions of all particles or the configuration of all fields) is defined by the wave function by a guiding equation. The evolution of the wave function over time is given by Schrödinger’s equation. The theory is named after Louis de Broglie (1892–1987) and David Bohm (1917–1992).’
Maybe the answer is in the pic. And belief makes matter, there is no fixed version of Quantum Physics and if you believe in one version, that is what you will get. ‘The answer depends on your preferred view of the quantum world’.
But Does It Matter ?
