The amberical cord

Although the following notice is not of the cheery email type I prefer, it took my breath away.

1st NOTICE: The following item/s have not been returned by the date on which they were due. Please return them promptly. You may be charged a daily fee for each item

AUTHOR: Bernstein, Peter L.
TITLE: The power of gold : the history of an obsession

The book in question was part of my research for the Mil-Lion Man series. I’d had the book in my home for the maximum time allowed, had read many of it’s words & gained a lot of insight without ever realising that it contained treasure on the outsight.

My second to last article led to a virtual unification of air & amber & while I thought I’d finished with this topic, I kept turning corners & running into resin-ating synchs. My overdue library notice was no exception especially as I’d returned the good book in good time the day before. Thus I resi(g)n-ed myself to continuing the amber trail. You see the author’s surname Bernstein is the German word for Amber (something I had only learned recently).

Bernstein
Jewish (Ashkenazic): ornamental name from German Bernstein ‘amber’ (from Middle Low German bernen ‘to burn’ + stēn ‘stone’; it was thought to be created by burning, although it is in fact fossilized pine resin)”

On the subject of resinating, Peter Bernstein author of the alleged overdue library book has a birthdate of January 22 – a quick mix’n’search of the names Heath Ledger & Amber unearthed this;

Heath Ledger Helped Model Amber Smith Get Clean
“Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Amber Smith said that Heath’s sudden passing due to an accidental drug overdose played a part in her getting clean
.”

Interestingly, there is an identically named amber man who was a Stravinsky of “Stargate SG-1.

Hurry down to your local music shop for The Best of Stargate 1′ while stocks last.

A little further truffle snuffling, unearthed more precious amber from the astral egress show. There was an Amber Rothwell who played a character named Jennifer Clark & the there was April Amber Telek who plays a character called Sallis

THE STARGATE OMNIPEDIA- SALLIS Alteran (an altar?)… village woman and closet historian… Her body was taken over by Vala Mal Doran …Vala, in Sallis’s body, was burned to death”
Vala/Sallis was being brought forth to be placed in the sacrificial altar to be burned.” alive” – remembering of course that the German word for amber translates as burn stone

As we’re following a meandering amber route lets take the sacrificial Sallis’ name as the trail blaze to our next destination in the Baltic(where amber has washed up on the beaches there for centuries).

I found Sauleunder a heading I could not ignore – “SPINNING & WEAVING GODDESSES”

The greatest goddess of the Baltic peoples—the Lithuanians and Latvians—is the shining sun, the sky weaver, the amber goddess Saule. She rules all parts of life, from birth into her light to death when she welcomes souls into her apple tree in the west. Saule is worshipped each day when her people bow to the east to greet Mother Sun.”

Saule (pronounced SEW-lay) is the Baltic sun Goddess, ruling all parts of life and light. She is married to Meness, the moon God, and together they created the earth and the stars. When Saule found out that Meness had raped one of their daughters, she slashed his face with a sword, leaving the marks we see on the moon today. She then banished him from her presence, and they are no longer seen together in the sky. Saule continues to drive her sun chariot across the sky every day, drawn by two white horses, and travels in a golden boat by night, trailing a red scarf and collecting the souls of those who have died during the day.


The sun is represented as a jug of golden light from which Saule pours her warm light and blessings onto all. It is also a golden thread which Saule spins on her spinning wheel…


to the Balts, the connection between the sun and spinning is very old, and the sun-stone, amber, forms the link. Spindles of amber have been found in the most ancient burial
“mounds. Amber was considered a magical substance for a spinner; as the light never tangles in the sky, so an amber spindle protected the new thread from snarls caused by unhappy or malicious spirits.

Just to make sure you are up to speed –

Amber is the fossilized resin of ancient trees which forms through a natural polymerization of the original organic compounds. Most of the world’s amber is in the range of 30-90 million years old.

Another name for it is Northern Gold.

A stone borne from water, a stone which imprisons life, with its inclusions of insects, a burning stone, a stone which attracts light objects after craping?, amber is an ambiguous material which inspired various legends

It was Jurassic Park that made amber westernally famous.

The book and the movie used the idea that amber containing an ancient mosquito might be the key to recreating dinosaurs. The basic goal was to remove blood from the gut of a mosquito that had fed on a dinosaur just before being trapped in tree resin which later became amber.”

This is the amber
That oozed down the tree
That trapped the mozzie
That supped on the DNA
That belonged to the dinosaur
That got cloned in the movie
That Spielberg made

OK so that’s a taster of the resin-ating substance, now lets reflect on it from a more colourful angle.


Until a short while ago I gave amber no mind – silly me, for it has been a part of my life, for all my life.

Two of the world’s three most popular beverages are the colour of amber – millions of people literally drink amber every day of their lives. Can you guess or are you going to sneak a look or did you already whizz to the end to see how long it was going to take to read this through & thought wtf are they doing there?

Well lets start with a goddess I found on my travels.

Second runner up in the Great Sips of the World contest is Ninkasi

Sumerian goddess of brewing and beer and head brewer to the gods themselves. Her name means “the lady who fills the mouth” and her birth was formed of sparkling-fresh water.

Her father was Enki, the lord Nudimmud, and her mother was Ninti, the queen of the Abzu. She is also one of the eight children created in order to heal one of the eight wounds that Enki receives. ‘She is the goddess made to “satisfy the desire” and “sate the heart’

With a resume like that, she should have no trouble finding employment – mind you the outfit probably helps..

Beer is one of the world’s oldest beverages, possibly dating back to the early Neolithic or 9000 BC, and is recorded in the written history of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Beer colour is determined by the malt. The most common colour is a pale amber produced from using pale malts.

Today, the brewing industry is a global business, consisting of several dominant multinational companies and many thousands of smaller producers ranging from brewpubs to regional breweries. More than 133billion liters (35 billion gallons) are sold per year (the equivalent of a cube 510 metres on a side), producing total global revenues of $294.5 billion (£147.7 billion) in 2006.

Did your parents ever tell you there was money in amber?

First runner up in the Great Sips of the World contest goes to Camellia sinensis, no, no I said Camellia not Camilla


ahhh the poetry of tea…

…specializes in Flowery Orange Pekoes and Orange Pekoes that have well-produced, regular-size leaf and give an amber golden liquor with a scented aroma

… full of flavor and rich amber color

Darjeeling black tea, with an amber color and a fragrant aroma

ENJOY ITS DEEP AMBER COLOR

In case you were wondering the winner of the Great Sips goes of course to water, a major contributor in the creation of our two amber runners up.

So where are we going with all this? Well I’ll still not quite sure, but let’s not let that stand in the way of a trail that may have been overlooked for too long.

Lets look at ambrosia – I am told, etymologically, that ambrosia is not related to amber

ambrosia  1555, “favored food or drink of the gods,” from L. ambrosia, from Gk. ambrosios, lit. “of the immortals,” from a- “not” + mbrotos, related to mortos “mortal.”

b-u-t why let apparent fact stand in the way of the great twin sounding vibrations of amber & ambrosia, especially when play is to be had.

AHA no sooner had I written the above than I ‘chanced’ upon a site that has this to say

The classical scholar Arthur Woollgar Verrall, however, denied that there is any clear example in which the word ambrosios necessarily means immortal, and preferred to explain it as “fragrant,” a sense which is always suitable. If so, the word may be derived from the Semitic MBR (“amber”, compare “ambergris”) to which Eastern nations attribute miraculous properties. In Europe, honey-colored amber, sometimes far from its source, was already a grave gift in Neolithic times and was still worn in the 7th century AD as a talisman by druidic Frisians, though St Eligius warned “No woman should presume to hang amber from her neck.” W. H. Roscher thinks that both nectar and ambrosia were kinds of honey, in which case their power of conferring immortality would be due to the supposed healing and cleansing power of honey…

Obviously this does not make the following connecting of amber & ambrosia correct, but does point to the power of playing with words & following where they lead.

Anyway I was about to pour a little honey on to this page.

First we tie honey to amber (a sticky business) –

The various honey colours are basically all nuances of yellow amber“,

then we add a sprinkling of gods

Honey was and still is known as the nectar of the gods.

&

HONEY, honey cake and honey drinks played an important part in all mythologies. Ambrosia (honey and milk) was the food of the Greek and Roman gods and the celestial Nectar, the drink of Mount Olympus. The nectar of the gods, compounded of fermented honey and spices, was considered a delicious and salubrious drink and was poured by Hebe and Ganymede, the cupbearers of Zeus… Nectar possessed wondrous life-giving properties, the power to prevent decay and corruption and secure immortality.

Zeus, the omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent father of the gods, was brought up on honey

Here’s a great little honey god site if you enjoyed this taster.

The amber-ambrosia sound connection intrigued me, but all the more so on this amber venture when realising that this apparent nectar, so popular with the big boys on high held an interesting twist.

I wonder why it is that NECTAR can be re-blended to form ‘TRANCE’?

Further along on my travels I came across something that will be familiar to those residing in the United States of Am(b)erica.

Wiki says an Amber Alert is

a child abduction alert bulletin in the United States and Canada, as well as other countries, issued upon the suspected abduction of a child. AMBER is officially a backronym for “America’s Missing: Broadcasting Emergency Response” but was originally named for Amber Hagerman, a 9-year-old child who was abducted and murdered in Arlington, Texas in 1996.

There were too many synchs not to look more closely at this case, not least of which came from a dvd I was watching the other night. It was an old Ruth Rendell murder mystery, I’d picked up from the video store last week without reading what it was about. Before long I started noticing ‘Missing’ posters slotted into the background & sure enough the story involves a missing girl whose body is later discovered. A little further into the story we find that Chief Inspector Wexford’s daughter has just given birth to a baby girl & she is to be named ‘Amulet’ – an amulet is

any object intended to bring good luck and/or protection to its owner. Potential amulets include: gems or simple stones.

The timing of my viewing, the amber resin-ating amulet, the mention of Arlington in Aferrismoon’s latest post & something more that tugged at my gut left me with a strong conviction that Amber’s story should be a part of this article.

Right from the moment I read about the Amber Alert, I started wondering. I guess it was because I was looking through amber coloured glasses – I was on the alert for amber.

Because I’d been finding that amber plays a huge part in our lives, I found this new angle curious. On the Amber Alert wiki pageI found an image of Mrs George W Bush encapsulating Rae Leigh Bradbury, the first child to be recovered using the Amber Alert system. Very interestingly, on following up the sci-fi writer (well I couldn’t help myself) I found him also encapsulated with the same former first lady-in-red & accompanied by a bushman. The christian names of this first child (to be rescued) can be translated thusly – Rae as a shortened version of Rachel means ewe & Leigh is a meadow, clearing – so perhaps a little lost lamb was found by the good (amber) shepherd? A famous names website did actually feature Mr Bradbury – for Ray it stated;

First name origin: Hebrew
First name meaning: Little lamb, ewe; one with purity.

To put it as briefly as possible, Amber Hagerman was a 9 year old girl who was abducted in Arlington, Texas in 1996. Her naked body was found four days later. Her killer was never found. After her death the Amber Alert scheme was begun.

Amber’s story fits neatly into the ‘sad case of abducted children’ scenario that has been media fodder for quite some time now as well as being popularised through the entertainment channels. If you asked your average tv viewer or thriller reader how they’d think Amber died, I’m guessing they’d say strangulation, it seems to be the most popular method. This however was not the case, I was rather shocked to find that her throat had been cut – somehow this seemed to my, I must admit, entertainment-informed mind all wrong, it felt somehow calculated. I questioned my son as I often do for the sensible teenager’s ‘take’. He too was surprised, his opinion, was that you just don’t kill people that way, it’s too messy & awkward, so much blood, there’s so much easier ways to kill people – don’t ask me what he’s been reading. Then these words followed ‘You cut a throat to make a point”. He also suggested blood sacrifice, which had crossed my mind too.

Amber’s abduction on 13th January, 1996 was viewed & reported by a man with a rather ominous name

Eyewitness [Jimmie] Kevil said he watched the man drive west out of the parking lot and disappear.

It was apparently a totally random abduction

Police theorized it was an impetuous crime of opportunity since Amber had no established pattern of riding her bicycle there at that time of day.

The man likely watched Amber and Ricky ride into the parking lot together. He pounced on the girl just moments after her brother left to ride back to his grandparents’ home

Very impetuous indeed.

The abduction was front-page news in Texas. Police were hopeful that other witnesses would step forward—perhaps someone who had seen the feisty girl struggling with her abductor as he tried to drive

Police and the FBI formed a special task force to investigate, and the girl’s smiling image became omnipresent in the Dallas Metroplex.

Now here’s a word you just don’t see in the media every day –

Coincidentally, a local TV station had been working on a story about Donna Hagerman’s struggle to get off welfare, and the station released videotape of the girl to other media outlets.

So this child was not an ‘unknown’ – she was already part of a media story.

At the time, WFAA-TV (Channel 8) had been working on a story about families struggling to get off welfare, and Amber and her mother were two of the subjects. The station provided the police with hours of video that was distributed to other television stations. While Amber was missing, thousands of viewers watched footage of her blowing out birthday candles, playing with her brother and being tucked into bed”.

In those four days, she became a very real person,” Sheriff Anderson said. “She wasn’t just a photograph they were looking at … It was almost like she became Arlington’s child.

Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson, then the Arlington police spokesman, said the kidnapping devastated the city unlike any other case he’s seen in 25 years.

Her image became so widely known during the investigation that the local police chief would later call Amber Arlington’s child.”

Now here’s a small sideroad that appeared as I was completing this article – while Googl-y-magingArlington‘ I came across it spelled thusly- ARlington, – oh thought I, there’s RA backwards (again), I wonder if there’s anything else to be seen & so googled Ling & came upon Ling Bouvier of Simpson fame (I don’t watch it & am only aware of the main characters). I’ve since found that, like the daffodils, there’s a host of Bouviers, fluttering & dancing in the breeze. Chance wordplay? I also found an Amber Simpson – Homer’s

“‘Vegas (Vega – arguably the next most important star in the sky after the Sun) wife’ who gets offed via a drug overdose.”

Before we go on, here’s a little info on Sagittarius – Amber’s birth sign (born November 25th) –

“Early Sagittarian(born November 23 – December 5) …Power Stone: Amber – Wear it or carry it with you for short periods of time. Ancients believed that this fossilized resin trapped the sun.”

She loved “America the Beautiful” for the line “amber waves of grain.

The name Arlington is synonymous with the sacrificed sun king JFK – he’s buried (trapped?) there, well not there there, he’s in the one in Virginia, nevertheless I feel we can look on them as ‘one‘ –

The city was founded in 1875 and is named for Arlington, Virginia.”

Amber’s life was taken 33 years after JFK’s assassination.

JFK lies beneath an eternal amber flame IN Arlington Cemetery.

Amber Hagerman was called Arlington’s Child IN Dallas – the place famed & remembered for delivering death to the 35th president. Amber’s surname Hagerman resin-ates very strongly with the other man who put Dallas on the map & into the minds of the world – Larry Hagman aka J.R Ewing.

Arlington & Dallas are joined in a sacred union – the (Most Holy) Trinity River runs through them. Trinity is

a 710-mile long river that flows entirely within the U.S. state of Texas…The name “Trinity” came … in 1690 from Alonso De Leon, who called the stream the “La Santísima Trinidad” (“the Most Holy Trinity“).

Dealey Plaza has not always looked like this. Before Dealey Plaza was built (1936), the area contained 3 city blocks, full of buildings and businesses. Another street, named Broadway, ran north-south (left-right from this view) through the middle of it. West of Broadway was the railroad tracks. All three streets were straight prior to the Plaza being built. Where the Triple Overpass is was once the banks of the Trinity River, until the Trinity River Levee project in the 1920’s moved the Trinity about 1/2 a mile further west. The train tracks were right beside the river, and most of this area was severely flooded in the Trinity flood of 1908

The city acquired the Plaza for construction of the Triple Underpass, which opened in 1936 (or 63 reversed) and sits east of the former bed of the Trinity.


I’ve got tired trying to find corroboration of just where the Trinity River originally flowed but it seems it’s path was interestingly close to JFK’s future sacrificial site.

OK time to hit the road again & this time it’s all about the journey, not the destination – really, I’m serious, this is no New Age cliche spouting – amber is sooooo very much a part of our journeying.

Sorry there’s not many pictures out there for amber traffic lights & amber car blinkers & amber bus signs & amber traffic works signs, but if you’ve got this far you’re probably going to start noticing them now, A LOT!

I’ve spent the last few weeks being drawn to amber lights. Amber is an interesting colour, it has a kind of luminescent feel or look to it – a dull or flat amber colour just doesn’t work – it needs to ‘glow.

Each & every day my eyes have been drawn to a very large amber arena. I don’t know if I should be worried but I think it’s starting to have an affect on me..

I’ve been trying to figure out ‘why amber’? Perhaps it’s just a good colour to use, you know stands out a lot, but other lighted colours stand out too, otherwise we wouldn’t stop & go at traffic lights.

I’ve been thinking that, of all traffic light colours, amber is the ‘bastard’. Green’s good (although if you think about it, all too often it’s just leading you on to somewhere you may not want to go – like work or the bank). Red is stop, a kind of fait accompli, it’s done & you put up with it. But amber is the ‘oh f**k’ colour, the heart sinking in your boots if you’re already running late or else it’s the panic scramble to see if just maybe you’re close enough to slip through without getting caught, all so you can just miss out on the next amber light round the corner.

Then there’s the flashing amber blinkers at every intersection & every part of your journey. The click. click sound in your car & the hypnotic blinking of the cars in front.

I’ve been wondering if amber has become the symbolic colour of the western world. I remember being in Egypt years ago where the only blinking going on was done by the eyelids of the inhabitants – all turning was signalled with constantly beeping horns.

Is amber the colour of conformity, ‘civilisations little instructional colour’?

This color is the color of fast changing street lights This is part or the grid lock alert in NYC you better be on the other side of the light when it turns Amber, or you’ll be stuck in the middle ..First all the other cars will be screaming profanities at you and then those traffic police break out their pens

… would you believe that’s from a nail polish ad! – but they use it because they know we’ll have a visceral reaction to it – we know exactly what they’re talking about.

Amber goes deeper & darker than this though, for it is the god of the long dark night of civilisation.

Cool! I’ve flown over Chicago at night before…it’s amazing…like a constellation of stars arranged in a perfect grid with the occasional line of an arterial road cutting across diagonally. The stark and immediate blackness of lake michigan contrasts the bright amber of the sodium vapour street lights.

He said yesterdays photo looks like the whole city was on fire. Throw in the smoke, I understand exactly what he is talking about.

Looking out my window one evening, I noticed the street light shinning through the ice cycles that were hanging from the roof of my home.”

Late Night Blues with Amber Light Pollution – 4 lights pic Polaroid SX70. Polaroid 600 film. No filter.

I never used to think about it, but now I can’t help but see that the night, is alight with amber.


The Hubble telescope has provided in a low key, yet powerfully persuasive, manner a sense of the scope of the universe. Yet, counterintuitively, the contemporary era has seen our personal relationship with the universe shrunk by light pollution. Photopollution prevents us seeing the night sky in anything like its true magnificence as street and ambient lighting vies with and usually overcomes the stars. And this problem is a design problem. Because there has been a profligate approach to the use of energy and the design of street lighting in our towns and cities for decades.

…, ‘light pollution is the scourge of astronomers around the world as it washes out the sky and makes it much more difficult to see fainter objects, particularly the Milky Way. It also deprives the public of the full pleasure of seeing the sky at night’.

Was it design flaws that led to the amberisation of civilistaion? Could there be more to it? Just how important is the night sky to us & our wellbeing? We know the ancients were fixated upon the night sky, yet we city dwellers are barely aware of it. Why is sleeping under the stars considered a romanic & desirable notion?

TUCSON, Ariz. — The world’s first and only known therapeutic moonlight reflector, a 30-ton, 50-foot tall collection of parabolic mirrors in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, has drawn hundreds of people to the site outside Tucson in hopes of curing their ailments, according to Richard Chapin, its inventor.

Chapin’s company, Interstellar Light Applications, has poured $2 million into the venture it believes has “unlimited benefits for the medical, agricultural and industrial fields,” according to its Web site.

Chapin said extensive research has shown that different wavelengths of light have beneficial therapeutic effects at the cellular level

Different tissue and cell types in the body each have their own particular light absorption dispositions — they will only absorb light of a specific wavelength, the company said. Different frequencies of light have distinct benefits and applications, ranging from treating problems such as wounds, scars and infections to arthritis and acupuncture, the company said

Whether or not the above actually works, it does draw attention to the possibility that the night sky may have as much importance to us as our day sky….BUT our night sky is washed away in amber rays.

In Saule’s shining presence, people feel safe to go about their businesses and tasks, but once She leaves the skies, certain work must end. To continue, without her guardianship, would be inviting trouble from dangerous spirits.”

I’m wondering if the articfical sunshine that lights our nights is throwing our bodies into some kind of chaos – contributing or leading to the vast western businesses ..err sorry I meant diseases. Could the chronic tiredness, lethargy & disillsionment that stalks so many be a result of our bodies never getting to rest. How much amber light shines into our bedrooms at night? Does it restrict our dream journeys?

I don’t know of course, I just wanted to throw out some moonbeams to finish.

    Fascinating! What an interesting weave that was for you! Thanks for the Sagittarius info, guess I’d better get ahold of an amber stone!I also thought perhaps the association of the element of “fire” might be what amber could represent in some cases? From the four elements of course, but in some situations, not all.Agreed that the artificial lighting on the night sky is wreaking havoc on sleep patterns for people, I read that people who wear a dark-mark over their eyes at night get a better sleep than those that don’t. I tend to pull the covers over my head so I cannot see the ‘illumination’ from the street. Perhaps it’s the PTBs way to double their profits by providing the artificial environment at night so double the work can get done? The world that doesn’t sleep…hmmm.Agreed with that poor child’s death, the method is for sacrifice, and more than likely was. Could have been a monarch ordered to do so or perhaps something triggered their programming while this monarch was watching the news. Anything is possible. But amber certainly has an association to “light” doesn’t it? And the sun, and perhaps fire too.Great muse Wise one!!Cheers!

    You missed out Fosters, the Amber Nectar! I’ve also had an Amber on my mind as well, an actress called Amber Heard. She’s got an illuminated birthday of 22 April (world earth day) and she was born in Austin, Texas! http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1720028/Sticking with Hollywood, I had a Camellia sync as well. I saw this film called Push, which had an actress called ‘Camilla’ Belle in it. She is going to be in a film in 2010 called ‘Mary Mother of Christ’, she plays Mary!Push also syncs in with your Hollywood gene breading theory, that our actors are being breed from the same gene pool. Camilla Belle herself looks like Sophie Marceau (comment on IMDB).Another reason I mention the film Push, is that there was this actor in it called Cliff Curtis (CC), which lead me onto watching Once Were Warriors (I was pleased to see one Hollywood film where an Indian bloke wasn’t stereotyped or killed off, only to find out that he’s a Maori!), syncing with NZ and your lovely self!NZ has been in my thoughts a lot since I met a bloke a few years ago who doesn’t stop going on about it. His grandfather was the first Indian settler in NZ. He constantly tells me how NZ is how England was before they ruined it, and, in terms of landscapes, how the ‘best place in England’ would be the ‘worst place in NZ’.Jake Kotze’s Blob also mentions the ‘Kiwi’ in his latest post.Saule could be Saul/Sol/Sun/Soul and riding the chariot across the sky is very Apollonian. Interesting to note how they make the Sun feminine and the Moon masculine.And I like the Blue Hindu tea God, funny how Shiva is all over the other side of the sync web, yet ‘down under’ it is all the other way around!Some other random comments, after landing on your coast, I had to go off and explore of course!1. Paul Newman looks like Rutger Hauer2. The Chinese also believe that the area above your lip and below your nose is a ‘reset button’.3. The whole hero/coward thing, I recalled Back to the Future and how Marty was always being coerced into something by being called ‘chicken’, through his journey he learned not to do that and thus altered his future.Sorry for the long post, I’d just like to add that I have no intentions of colonising! Star Trek, James T Kirk = James T Cook, Tina Arena, Chains, got to stop, I’m getting sync overload!

    Hi MichaelSo I guess if you were in a male pin-up calendar you would be 'Mr Amber' :)Yes I definitely associate fire with this stone & in fact there's a whole other area I might look at, was going to include it, but the article was getting too big & I was getting rather tired.The 'Dark Mark', if that's not a comic character, it should be LOLI bought some curtains on the weekend to block out the artifical light, it stops the natural dawn lighting but I figure my body needs the rest. Oh man you've reminded me of something else I left out – perhaps another little post is required – do I say thanks or blow you a raspberry or should that be an amberberry :)All the best to you my friendHi Jaspaloh Castlemaine XXXX I missed out Fosters LOL.Interesting that you bring up twins s I've just been contemplating them again, they don't stop do they! – Paul & Rutger is a good one.Actually I spotted one doing thispost – Larry Hagman & Paul Gross (of Due South fame). Plus a friend emailed me today & said "OH by the way, I saw Hugh Jackman's opening night interview for Wolverine, and he has a profile side smile that looks like he is VERY related to Clint Eastwood."I appreciated all your comments, thanks – my articles are like my children & I recognise easily what you are referring to – they were excellent tie-ins. It amazes me how much NZ ties in, it's so easy to feel 'out of the loop'.All the best to you

    Wow!! wise you gave me tons to think about with this new article!! I think that is fascinating about Amber Hagerman and the 33rd anniversary of the sun king’s death!! That fits right into where i am going with things I am looking into that I would not have believed even a year ago-that there is an occult left hand sinister path that the security and I say security with sarcasm services in the world use-especially our good ole CIA here in the USA-it is also fascinating to me the various photos and themes you brought out -dang it-I thought I could help you with “ambrosia” but you got to it before haha!! for some reason that word occurred to me today out of thin air-haha no pun intended in relation to your latest series of posts because I think there was a rock/pop group called Ambrosia that did a song I loved in the seventies-I also enjoyed your “resinating” humor!! this article really sent a lot of shock waves running through me as like I say -I have been increasingly in the past months found myself unable to deny the existence of powerful people in the world in all areas of life who use black magic and esoterica (This would also include the abduction and ritual murder of children) to further whatever the hell they are trying to do with these sacrifices-which is what they are i think-sacrificial offerings to god only knows what power-very scary stuff-but I will not bury my head in the sand any more and wish like hell the other 99 percent of my countrymen and women would stop doing it!! best as always to you and this was a splendidly laid out post with beautiful images and links and the like-your friend forever from Arizona-the land of the “Amber” heat at least it feels to me like being stuck in amber:-)

    i was told that the amber or the yellow / middle light on the street lights means “Proceed with Caution” or just “Caution”. Wow, all this talk of fire, coming right after reading Celtic Rebel’s latest. My brain is fried just now. haha btw, Arlington Va is a suburb of Washington D.C. and a burb with lots of government or CIA types in residence. Or so I heard. Funny you mentioned the Bouviers, you know that that is the maiden name of JFK’s widow, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Oh yeah, Arlington Road is the name of a very creepy terrorist film with Tim Robbins in it. From 1999, with this tag line: Fear thy neighbor.

    Hi DevinThanks for your vibrant comments my friend.That's very interesting that Ambrosia was on your mind yesterday, I had another friend who's thoughts I picked up on or vice versa too, yesterday – perhaps the air was 'resinating' extra well :)As you say we don't know why things are happening but certainly there is enough 'information' to at least take notice & ask questions. I hope you can unstick yourself, dry out your wings come visiting one day :)All the very best

    Wise,Haven’t visited in a while, so I’ve some catching up to do. Very nice work on this article. You hit so many interesting points, but this:Is amber the colour of conformity, ‘civilisations little instructional colour’?made me think…fools gold!!!Thanks again for such food for thought. Be well.

    OBTW, with regard to Michael’s comment “Perhaps it’s the PTBs way to double their profits by providing the artificial environment at night so double the work can get done?” I’ve often wondered why businesses keep their lights on at night… not only is it a waste of resources… but it seems to me it makes it easier for “thieves” to scope out the goods. If the lights were out… the robbers would be at an obvious disadvantage! :)

    Glad I came this way. Burnt stone! Beautiful. And then burned alive? You’ll find a virtual womb of syncs o’plenty with my same-day release from my series.She’ll fix you with an iron crossAnd cover you up with petalsAnd hang you up with some amber beadsAnd four or five precious metalsThe outfit works for me! :-)The name Bradbury is also associated with Orange. Like clock-work I tell you. 1996? Kevil? R[18=666]-lington?

    Hi Aferrismoon – your comment sparked off a little trail (as usual :)Looked up meaning of Oswald & got 'god of the forest' & 'divine power' – further down the page were variations – one of which was Roswald (Roswell??) – means 'Mighty Horse' – fancy a horse trek? …Hmmm Prague sounds amber rich – plus you have all the real stuff too – I went shopping over here – it took some looking but I got a little piece for $10 – not sure where it comes from though.Oh & apologies if you covered this & it slipped my mind, but 'Caddo Parish' gets translatted in my brain as 'Kaddish'. CheersHi AnnemarieI'd forgotten about Arlington Rd – glad you brought that up – might have a closer look at that. Tis definitely an interesting place wherever it is twinned.Yep I knew about Jackie's name – that's what made me wonder just how 'planned' the names of characters are.ATB to you

    Hi VixenThanks for your thoughts – fools gold perhaps – perhaps all gold is for fools?Very good question about lighted business premises – I hadn't thought about it – just so used to seeing it so. Another one of the oh so many things that just needs someone to see 'see' & say wtf!All the best & I do hope you have a sense of humour because there's something I need to say, well I can't resist… :)Hi Mr Rebel…So I hope you enjoyed having a vixen on top of you :) – at least you can't say you had a wasted journey here LOL.I shall indeed be journeting to the 'Celtic hothouse' – as steamy as usual I presume :)Sorry I'll try & be serious now. I didn't know about a Bradbury orange connection – Matthew Delooze has some interesting ideas on orange, also the clockwork kind.Interesting lyrics – thanks.Glad I was able to return a little of the 'Emperor's haute couteur' for which you are so rightly famed :)Ah that was fun :)

    I had to come back to your beautiful article wise-it is so funny-almost every time i comment on something-unless it is a short article-I always forget to say what strikes me emotionally about things -your mentioning the Hubble telescope and how the pollution affects seeing the Milky Way and other glorious aspects of this universe -and to how it may affect our sleep and dreams really hit home-I was still a child when I got to see my first “real” night sky-Milky Way and all-outside of a big city’s pollution-that had such a spiritual effect on me back then-only at the age I was I would not have called it sprirituality-until then I thought that the “bastardized”-right word?? night sky was the real one that we see in the big cities-and was overawed and overcome with a certain emotion when I saw a sky similiar to what the ancients must have experienced!! On another note I flew into Chicago at night to one evening in 1990-and that was also beautiful to look at like you said-but with what I know now-I would so much rather have the natural sky and no city lights-beautiful article as always-I really enjoyed the creativity of your thinking in linking the “amber” concept into all of these things-something like the “Amber Alert” and “Amber” Hagerman would have passed right over my head!! Have a glorious weekend my friend-from your melting amber friend in Arizona!!

    Hi Devin Thanks for remembering & bringing your story here – most of us do think that the sky 'at night in the city lights' is the real one – it's funny how often people comment on the night sky when they go out into the country & also the blackness – perhaps our bodies need that blackness – there is an exercise you can do for your eyes called palming where you cover your eyes with the palm of your hands & try to visualise the blackest black you can because it is very soothing & healing for your eyes – is true darkness the same for our bodies I wonder?Great to see you here as always my friend – I hope your weekend mellows out – temperature wise.
