The Jeckyll of Hyde Park & the Lady of the Lake unveiled (part 3)

At present in my world it is Monday evening. Every seven days I’m back at this or some equally ‘same’ place. A friend & I agreed today that it doesn’t make sense.

So do we live within a Groundhog Week? Perhaps it stretches a little farther into Groundhog Month? Or maybe Groundhog Year? Did the Mayans have it right with their 52 year cyclic knowing? Surely we are indeed going round & round in circles, & perhaps living story lines that are not our own.

The first Ferris Wheel?

This chap “represents eternity and the cycles or “circle of life.” Wanna go for a ride? Oh silly me we’re already on one & it’s the ride of our lives.

We’re now up to the same point in our story that Eve was in, when she wandered up to the tree of knowledge & noticed that something rather large & vocal had hoved into view between the apples.


I hopped onto the Ouroboros Roundabout lately but all I got was dizzy – there are as many pro-snakists as there are anti-venomists. Is the serpent good or goddess or evil or vile?

For the purpose of this tale we go with a theory that the snake’s energy & symbolism been hijacked for nefarious purposes. The sync I needed to continue this serie came via line in a Matthew Delooze article last week “That force is a deceptive multidimensional energy that is symbolised in Serpentine form.” We’ll return to this.

So let’s play with the idea that we are living within made-up stories. Of late I have been losing my awe of ‘great’ humans. Instead I’ve been seeing a pre-prepared stage of ho-hum-humans dominating dumbled-down dumb bunnies.

How does the leavened genius inherent in EVERY child get turned into an adult dough that rarely rises?

I took the death of Adrienne Shelly as a starting point on a trail that has taken me on a roller coaster ride. Yet I think perhaps we could take any occult death, do the same & still end up with a snake biting it’s own tale – where does it begin & end? Or does it?

Many moons ago I looked at Frankenstein’s creature’s creator, Mary Shelley, simply because she & Adrienne Shelly shared a name. I wrote about it here. The twists & turns of that story went from some common threads to a whole ball of twisted & knotted yarn. Shall we see if we can untangle it & knit something useful?

Let’s go back in time to 1815.


That’s the year of Rock ‘n’ Roll when the world got all shook up. From 5th to 12 April that year, an almighty drum beat shook the earth


Mt Tambora (Spanish for drum) rocked Indonesia with one of the most explosive & deadly eruptions in history. 10,000 died from the explosion & an estimated 82,000 from starvation.

This beat of this drum ripped & rippled around the world.
Tambora spewed sulphur-rich gases that rose to a height of 28 miles and created a giant sun filter in the northern hemisphere that caused the spring and summer of 1816 to be extremely cold across Europe and North America. Snowfalls and frost occurred in June, July and August and all but the hardiest grains were destroyed. Destruction of the corn crop caused farmers to slaughter their livestock. Soup kitchens were opened to feed the hungry. Sea ice formed in the Atlantic shipping lanes and glaciers advanced down mountain slopes to exceptionally low levels. Hundreds of thousands died of starvation as crops failed, touching off a wave of migration to the American South and Midwest.”

this eruption put more than 150 million tonnes of dust in the atmosphere which gradually spread around the globe acting as a veil

Beneath this veil dark things were conceived, in The Year Without a Summer (also known as 1816).

That was the year that a group of heroically named wordsmiths arose & went forth to the shores of the Lake of Geneva. And during the summer that wasn’t, Mary Godwin-Wollstonecraft & her lover Percy Bysshe Shelley, plus George Gordon Byron & John William Polidori birthed two of the worlds greatest monsters at Villa Diodati – “Italian: … meaning ‘God-given’, from Latin deus ‘god’ + donatus ‘given’.”

Mary’s labour produced Dr Frankenstein & his creature, while Lord Byron dallied a little with with a vampiric theme, that was taken up by Polidori, eventually becoming The Vampyre, a tale that is most often seen as the predecessor of Dracula. “Polidori transformed the vampire from a character in folklore into the form that is recognized today — an aristocratic fiend who preys among high society.” The formal presentation of these twins would occur a couple of years later.

Perhaps these creations were ‘unearthed’ & cast out from the belly of the Underworld when Mt Tambora erupted! Did they float in the ether until they reached a Garden of Eden in which to be born? What was it about the land around Lake Geneva that was so conducive to these creations? Surely it is about time that we gave thought to the lie of the land – that all that is created must be intimately connected to the place of its birth.

On the shores of Lake Geneva came this ‘waking dream’ to 18 year old Mary Shelley (nee Godwin Wollstonecraft) “I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life, and stir with an uneasy, half vital motion. Frightful must it be; for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavour to mock the stupendous mechanism of the Creator of the world.

Lets return to the land of these monster’s births. Could it be a place of highly charged energy?

Villa Diodati is nested on the shores of the crescent shaped Lake Geneva. You may have heard of Geneva, it is the seat of one or two organisations;
Geneva is the seat of the European headquarters of the United Nations…was also the headquarters of the former League of Nations. Several agencies are headquartered at Geneva, among which the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR), the World Health Organisation, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) or the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO)… apart from the United Nation agencies, Geneva hosts many inter-governmental organisations such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the World Economic Forum (WEF), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)…It is also the place where the Geneva Conventions were signed, which chiefly concern the treatment of wartime non-combatants and prisoners of war (made very popular in war movies).

What a little hub humanitarian conCERN

Oh silly me I nearly left something out. Lest we forget. What a remarkable coincidence that a hop, skip & a jump away from the birthplace of the dark matter of these tales lies yet another birthing machine, the Hadron Collider, where just like Dr Frankenstein, man again plays God(win).


The big green splodge is the reasonably accurate location of the Genesis Machine otherwise known as the Hadron Collider. If you peer (closely), across the lake to the right of it, you will make out a small dot, this is the Garden of Eden where the lads were born.

September 10, 2008 The world’s largest atom smasher’s first experiment went off today without a hitch, paving the way toward the recreation of post-big bang conditions.” That was the date that the mother of the mother of Frankenstein’s monster died.

Frank’s Ma & Pa returned to England a little later in the year. In October Mary Shelley’s half sister Fanny Imlay (Mary Wollstonecraft’s eldest daughter), committed suicide by taking an overdose of Laudanum in the seaside town of Swansea. There is some speculation that she was somehow let down by Percy Bysshe Shelley, when they met up in the English town of Bath in Somerset. We recall that Adrienne Shelley was found hanged from a shower rail in the bath.

Women, water, birth, baptism & death.

Two months later, Harriet Shelley becomes a rusalka. Percy Bysshe Shelley’s wife drowns herself & her unborn child in the Serpentine River in Hyde Park.

I’d been under the impression that it was Shelley’s child she carried & that he had abandoned her for Mary Godwin Wollstonecraft but this apparently was not the case. It seems the couple had decided to live apart, although they had two children.

By July, when Shelley and Mary eloped, Harriet’s unhappy, though not impossible, situation seemed clear. With her marriage her father had settled £200 a year on her; Shelley gave her a further £100… So she was comfortably situated as far as her financial situation was concerned. Yet she was clearly unhappy… At some point she took a lover… Sometime in the late summer of 1816 Harriet took lodgings in… Knightsbridge, clearly to shield her family from a pregnancy out of wedlock. In late November or early December, having written a despondent farewell addressed to her father, her sister, and her husband, she walked the short distance from her lodgings to Hyde Park and drowned herself in the Serpentine River. At the time of her death she was just twenty-one years old.”

Before we call a very great discrepancy into question take a look at this

Lake Leman & the Serpent of Hyde

I’ll admit in the second image I turned the world upside down, but what think you of the uncanny resemblance of the Serpentine River to Lake Geneva (Lake Leman)? On the shores of the latter Mary Godwin Wollstonecraft played goddess & gave birth to a fantastical monster. With the Serpentine death of her lover’s wife, she received the consecrated name of Shelley on 30th December 1816. This is the hallowed name that is connected with the Frankenstein legend.

It was a busy year.

Lets take another look at Percy Bysshe Shelly’s first wife, Harriet. It seems she took lodgings to spare her family the shame of a pregnancy out of wedlock. …Errr so perhaps a less dramatic & attention seeking ending might have been on the cards, you know like Mary’s sister with her discreet bottle of laudanum.

Tell me please how desperately you must want to die, to walk into a freezing cold lake in the middle of an English winter.

Then please explain to me the strange significance of the lady’s name, for never have I come across a woman who so decidedly bears the title of Lady of the Lake.

A little background info. “The Serpentine (also known as the Serpentine River) is a 28 acre (11 ha) recreational lake in Hyde Park, London.” A woman called it into being – “In 1730 Queen Caroline, wife of George II, ordered the damming of the River Westbourne in Hyde Park as part of a general redevelopment of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.”

Harriet Shelley was born Harriet Westbrook.

Lets look to the West: “Associated with the west is the season of autumn, old age and death… In Egyptian mythology, the “western lands” are the territory the souls of the dead make a hazardous pilgrimage to in their quest for immortality.”
or
“Verb: go west Die; become destroyed” which was” first recorded in a poem of the early 1300s: “
Women and many a willful man, As wind and water have gone west.

A brook is “a natural stream of water smaller than a river.” A bourne is “A small stream; a brook“. The Serpentine is the child of the Westbourne River. The words ‘brook’ & ‘bourne’ are watery twins – The Lady WestBROOK was swallowed by a serpent born from the waters that twin with her name – WestBOURNE. She was just 21 years old.

Because I keep finding knots with the past & because I am wondering big time, if we are simply on a ouroburos roundabout going nowhere except where we’ve been before, I’m going to play with some ideas. One of these is that famous names return to create new famous names.

If you recall the earlier Fair Phantom series, you may recall the death of the Russianly descended model, Ruslana Korshunova. Four days before her 21st birthday she leaped to her death in Water Street. It was ruled a suicide. Was it something more – a memory of a past life, an echo, a repeating pattern in time? Did Ruslana become the new Lady of the Lake?

What of the other legends of that time? Did they leave echoes & patterns?

Frankenstein, the novel, was published on the most auspicious date of 1 January, 1818 when Mary Shelley was 21. Four years later in 1822, her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley drowned in a boating incident that remains a mystery. They were living in Italy at the time. In the days before his death he claimed to have seen his Doppelganger –the ghostly or in some cases, a physical double of a living person…Other folklore says that when a person’s doppleganger is seen, the person him/herself will die shortly.” Hmmm is not this the stuff of stories?

Shelley sailed away, not for a year & a day, but for the rest of his life, in a boat he had renamed ‘Ariel’. The boat had originally been named Don Juan, a compliment to Lord Byron, the sire of Dracula. Lord Byron took umbrage & forced the re-writing of the name Don Juan on the mainsail. The twice named boat set sail. Somewhere along the way Shelley & his two sailing companions drowned. He was 29 years old.

Ariel is a fictional sprite who appears in William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. Ariel is bound to serve the magician Prospero” who commands him to “shipwreck the King of Naples and his crew in a violent tempest.” (wiki)


Shelley’s body was in a very bad state when it washed ashore, and “in keeping with quarantine regulations, was cremated on the beach near Viareggio (which is believed to come from “the Latin Via Regis (“Kings’ Road“)“.

What follows sounds like fiction but is fact.
Trelawney, in his account of the recovery of Shelley’s body, records that “the face and hands, and parts of the body not protected by the dress, were fleshless,” and by the time that the party returned to the beach for the cremation, the body was even further decomposed. In his graphic account of the cremation, he writes of Byron being unable to face the scene, and withdrawing to the beach.
Shelley’s heart was snatched from the funeral pyre by Edward Trelawney; Mary Shelley kept it for the rest of her life, and it was interred next to her grave at St. Peter’s Church in Bournemouth
.”

I cannot help but feel this reads like an heroic tale. Is there more to the ‘great ones’ than meets the eye. Do we recognise their stories from times past. Do the great ones come back again & again & lead their ‘great lives’. Why would a man think to cut the heroic heart from a rotting corpse? Was he responding to heroic deeds of times past.

I stumbled upon this last week in reference to the death of 10 year old Louis XVII, son of Louis XVI & Marie Antoinette. “As was custom for royalty, the doctor removed the heart so that it would not be buried with the body.”

While Mary Shelley kept her husbands heart, his ashes were buried in Rome & a gravestone proclaims him Cor Cordium “heart of hearts’.

Here I return to an idea that I am contemplating more & more. That the great ones of art & music & literature & science, the geniuses, royalty, villains, leaders, are the same people returning & repeating over & over again.

I propose that the great ones are not great at all. They are somehow freer to use the ability inherent within us all. They are held up to us as great & they seem to be so much better, but then have we not been trained in the ‘art of being very small.’ I propose that the work of the great ones is laughable compared with what each & every one of us is capable of, but as long as ooh & ahh over ‘marketed greatness’ we cannot access our own inspired & unlimited talents.

I propose that we know these great ones, we recognise them when they re-arrive or we let ourselves remember after they die OR we are subtley nudged into remembering at the appropriate time. Was the removal of Shelley’s tell-tale heart the signal to remember his ongoing heroic greatness?

Was the sacrificial death of Harriet Westbrook the signal for the birth to greatness of Mary Shelley & her ‘creation’?

What of other geat ones; How about the nobly birthed “6th Baron Byron of Rochdale”, sire to the Vampire.

From wiki “Byron’s notabilty rests not only on his writings but also on his life, which featured upper-class living, numerous love affairs, debts, and separation. He was notably described by Lady Caroline Lamb as “mad, bad, and dangerous to know”.”

& once again of water & women
“…22year-old Margarita Cogni … left her husband to move into Byron’s Venice house. Their fighting often caused Byron to spend the night in his gondola; when he asked her to leave the house, she threw herself into the Venetian canal.”

Byron died an unpleasant death of fever & infection in Messolonghi, Greece in 1824, at the age of 36. According to wiki “It has been said that had Byron lived, he might have been declared King of Greece.”

In keeping with ‘royal’ tradition his heart was also removed from his body & is buried in Messolonghi.”

The heroic Lord Byron on his death bed

It is interesting how many of the great ones defer to the ancient great ones of mythology.

The full title of Mary Shelley’s novel is ‘Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus. One of her husbands great works is ‘Prometheus Unbound’.

Lets go forward in time now.

In 1990 there came a film called Frankenstein Unbound. It starred a modern great one.
I mean no disrespect to these people I refer to, I simply wish to see what it is like to look at famed people from a different angle. The great ones are as ‘dispensible’ as the rest of us.
The particular great one I refer to now is Michael Hutchence. We met him in an earlier post connected with this series. In Frankenstein Unbound, Hutchence became Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Two of the great ones (actors) in this movie, John Hurt & Michael Hutchence share a birth date. Last year that date was sanctified with the death of another great one who has also appeared in this series – Heath Ledger. The date of course is January 22.
Slipping sideways on a green banana skin, we find the Incredible Hulk who found himself rather inspired, by Dr Frankenstein’s monster. Bill Bixby, the man who played the Jeckyllish side of the Hulk, also partook of this notable date for birthday parties.

Of further interest in Frankenstein Unbound is the naming of the great one who plays Mary Shelley in that movie – Bridget Fonda. According to (an unsubstantiated wiki claim), she “is named after actress Margaret Sullavan’s daughter Bridget Hayward, who (like far too many)committed suicide at the age of 21.” Peering down an earlier track, we can just see Nathasha Richardson walking into the opening performance of her movie career in the shoes of Mary Shelley in Gothic (1986).

So what of the last great one from the Villa Diodati.

John William Polidori went on to flesh out Byron’s ideas into The Vampyre in 1819. “Polidori may have been the first author in any language to cast the bestial vampire of legend into the form most familiar to modern readers: a sophisticated nobleman who exerts a sexual fascination over both male and female victims.”

Two years later, Polidori was dead at the age of 25. “Many commentators, including Polidori’s nephew William Michael Rossetti, assume that Polidori’s death at age twenty-five was a suicide, but this remains unproven.”

My last article detailed the strange route I took to reach the strange case of Alexander Litvinenko, the former Russian KGB agent, who was served a very nasty cup of Polonium tea on the same day that the woman who inspired this series was murdered. How even stranger then it was for me to read of Polidori (apparently) committing suicide by drinking Prussic Acid.

What really threw me when I stumbled over Litvinenko was his non-fictional presence. Up till then the story had almost elegantly combined stories tellers with their tales. The poisoning of Litvinenko had the harsh, glaring lights of reality.

But did it?

On reflection I would have to say ‘No’. If ever there was a case of overkill, it was that man’s death. If you step away from the scary, modern radioactive-death-concoction scenario, what you get is the most fantastical tale I have ever heard. Look at this;

The Guardian has been told that the amount of polonium-210 found in the Russian’s body could have killed him 100 times over, and would have cost as much as £20m to acquire.”

Look again at his story, it is the stuff of thrillers.

Others saw the strangeness but still bought the baloney “Ian Fleming? No; Graham Greene? No; Tom Clancy? Absolutely not. Maybe John Le Carre’? Not even him. How about Frederick Forsyth or Eric Ambler then? No. None of the above mentioned authors could have imagined such a dramatically captivating plot as the mystery death of former KGB secret agent Alexandr Litvinenko.”

And the world was captivated.
What if he hadn’t spoken to the media? He would still have died, but perhaps the cause might have gone undetected. This was overkill & just like the bombing of the Greenpeace ship, Rainbow Warrior in Auckland Harbour, it was a show, a display for public consumption. A kind of reality tv show. It was a story brought to life & in the process it transformed Litvinenko into a great one or was he an echo from the past? This was a tale that was always going to be told.

Why?

I was going to finish it there for now, but I have one last remembering that does rather fit in here. I mentioned the Umbrella Murder, in passing last time. My Most Favourite Monster commented on it in his comment & so I looked a little further. Very briefly, we had the “murder of the Bulgarian dissident Georgi Markov, who was stabbed with a poisoned umbrella while walking across London’s Waterloo Bridge in 1978.” It was oh so horribly intriguing & cold war-ish at the time.

Looking from a storyline best-selling view-point, we see a Bulgarian upstart fiendishly done to death with a gadget straight out of a James Bond movie. This poison innoculation took place on 7 Sept (1978) which just happens to be birthing date of fellow posionee, John William Polidori. Both men were writers of fiction.
Georgi Markov, the man made famous for his ‘death by umbrella’ died on September 11.

    Lady of the lake, takes us back to the old Arthurian legend. She held the s-word Excalibur:"Caliburnus or Caliburn became Excalibur"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Excalibur(K)Cali is the female consort/version of Shiva and is the goddess of death and destruction, and burn as in Ty-burn/borne? Kali was said to have black skin because she had been burnt in a (vam)pyre, the word Kali literally means Black, it is the feminine of Kala. What did Prometheus give to mankind? Fire! Prometheus can be equated to Lucifer as light bringer, and then to Shiva, sharing his 3rd eye.“Lucifer’s Third Eye hit the earth causing a rip in the space-time continuum. It may be called a rip in the fabric that separates time and space or the third and forth dimensions if you will. Although the rip has healed over the millennia, minute amounts of energy, inconsistent with our present world, still leak from it.”http://www.jiroolcott.com/st_michael_alignment.htmlAnd Percy comes from the name Percival, a man who sought the Grail and meet the Fisher King, I wonder if anything is yanking at your line?Remember the film Groundhog Day? Strange enough, I was staring at the DVD in my room today. The day will only move onto the ‘real’ next day when you, like Bill Murray, have learned what is important and you yourself change, the Truman Show-esk actors around you will only do what they are programmed to do. That’s my interpretation of it anyway.Word veri scientic

    Another "woah! Wow!!" article Alex!I have to acknowledge your spin/weave on those "great ones" being so ho-hum now, but the real problem seems to be the "dumb bunnies" not breaking free from the "Groundhog Cycle" Humanity seems to be stuck in—not accepting or discovering their own inner greatness to share with the world and create new things!Is that one of the major contributing factors for recycled energy and keeping those "great ones" repeating in heroic tales?I think you've stumbled upon these "characters" cyclical weave, passing along from one generation to the next, brilliant eye!And speaking of "eyes", Jaspal's additional info is intriguing. Was thinking about that when pondering the "Kali-fornia" (California) origin.Well done Mystic Woman of the New Weave!Cheers!wv=holise

  3. Michael Skaggs replied:

    P.S.The removal of the heart is creepy but I think significant too! There is more energy in "our hearts" than people real-eyez!WV = emisma

  4. Michael Skaggs replied:

    I had to come back after thinking more during lunch about the Hyde Park area and Lake Geneva! Great find, and it does make me wonder with all those "organizations" located there, what mystical properties or powers the area provides? Is it on a Dragonline/leyline/Earth gridline of power? Are there mystical properties to the waters? There has to be something about its location.Again, most excellent investigative work WW!wv= stemr [lol]

  5. Devin replied:

    Thanks so much for this incredible and investigative article Alex!! i felt a bit stupid (as always haha) I didnt realize you had updated until I was going thru my blog list-I can't improve much or at all on what Jaspal and Michael Skaggs mentioned -just really incredible work-my hat-even tho i dont wear one (but wish fedora would come back into fashion:) is off to you!!:) Once again the same kind of eerie-well I will call it an echo -dont know if it is a time echo or that we are all on the ourboros ferris wheel ride and should expect these things to happen! and it happens quite often when I read your work but was particlularly strong with this article. I had just read within the last four months maybe less-a very long article (it was in a mag or book not on the web) about Polidori (I was quite taken with the picture I saw of him-handsome fellow:) and Rossetti and of course the whole Shelley/heart cremation thing-and I thought how ghastly-and why would Trelawny do that? well maybe I know now!! I just think its so odd that these real life synchs if you would go as far as calling them that happen -or like being reminded of Markov and Waterloo (thanks for that BTW:) haha-I would never have thought of Waterloo in those terms unless I had been reading blogs like yours) -or that Litvinenko article I never found. It just seems that I get a "preview" although unknowingly and unwittingly quite often of things you will be working on months down the road -no kidding and I find that fascinating-of course the people are not being mentioned like you are mentioning them here-but still seems weird -a cool weird tho! If the information I was reading was separated by years or something I would feel different-but often its within days-weeks-months! at first I wasn't even going to read the Shelley/Polidori/heart info whenever it was I had stumbled on it-but became quickly fascinated with the whole tale of the whole group-perhaps it had been in one of the books about poetry I get from the library from time to time? I still think the Russian model-Ruslana info as well as the things that tie Heath Ledger/Michael Hutchence/Bixby together are very intriguing. really really beautiful article alex!! I am going to have to come back to this one again and again-loved the bit about Geneva and conCERN haha-if only the International Monetary Fund where stationed there it would be perfect haha!! come to think of it I wonder where the IMF is at? will look up-best to you as always my friend and I hope you are having a beautiful week and I will be back to this one!! WV=murias

    alas the IMF is headquartered at another horrfic/monstrous place-Washington D.C. haha:) all the best!!xx

  7. Alex Robinson replied:

    Hi Guys, just wanted to say thanks for your great comments & I'll be back here when I have a little more time. In the meantime I really appreciated the 'energetic connection' :)

  8. Alex Robinson replied:

    Ok back again :)Hi JaspalI hope you are well. Great ideas thanks. …Hmmm perhaps the '(s)word in the stone' was really referring to the (top) Ten commandments :)Have had a look at the links you gave too, thanks. It's interesting how much this story returns to England – Adrienne Shelly was actually killed in an 'English' environment – ABINGDON square, GREENWICH & new YORK – so English mythology is perhaps very important.Groundhog day is certainly a story that lingers in the mind, the X-Files did a very interesting story line in similar mode.All the best to youHiya MichaelThanks for your comments. I got some art books out of the library today with the xpress intention of viewing them as works of art 'I' could create – am playing with the idea that pedestals do no good to anyone – why are we so plied with the 'greatness' of others – that's what school innoculates us with, we learn about 'great ones' while being steered away from our own genius. I plan to spend time in 'seeing' great works as something I could achieve just to see what that 'feels' like & if it adds to my life & helps me on my journey to 'awesome living' – whatever that may be, care to join me? :)As to the land & the waters, I feel they are very important indeed & all too easily overlooked, am hoping to play with them some more. And agreed, the heart is so powerful – why else would the Aztecs have spent so much time ripping them out, not to mention the price of dry cleaning, must have been hell getting all that blood out of their clothes. AND of course 'heart' is EARTH when you put it's beginning at the end (Ouroburos-style) All the very best to you & your feline family :)Hiya DevinThanks also for your great comments! That was fascinating that you were reading about Polidori – he really came alive for me when I read about how he died! Tho' that quote I used that suggested that suicide was not proven was surprising, I'd thought he was a definite suicide. I have some thoughts I might email you with & see what you think.I love that previewing effect, it's like even tho' we're all far apart, there's a connection, or more than one, at work!I reckon there's got to be a very good reason why Geneva is so 'humanitarianally' populated – something that the wordsmiths tapped into on their stay perhaps??Wishing you lots of cool & pleasant weather, quiet neighbours & speedy services :)

    Ruslana being presented as the new Lady of the Lake is another amazing point! The syncs are numerous, how to unfold them now? Or is it untie the knots?WV = knondsCheers!

    Hiya MichaelI AM seeing these events as knots in time, or is it time that is the knot? – knot that I know of course :)Whatever the case may be, atrocious things are occuring & recurring over & over & I'm tired of it & think it's high time we wove our own paths instead of tripping over & trapping ourselves in, the lumpy knotted webs of forever deceit. Gno what I mean :)

  13. Ben Emlyn-Jones replied:

    Has anybody else noticed (sorry if I missed where somebody says it) the creepy symbolism on the cover of the Dorothy L sayers book? The lamp looks like the capstone of an Illuminati Pyramid, the light representing the all-seeing Eye. The body of the pyramid is formed by the shape of the rays cast by the lamp.Next time I go to London I'm going to visit the Serpentine (Why that name indeed? Looks more like a slug than a snake!) and see if any structures correspond to CERN or Geneva. Like in Richard Hoagland's Mars mirror theory, the Sepentine could be a scale model of Lac Leman, albeit it inverted on the compass. What do you guys think of the Large Hadron Collider?Interesting article, Alex. Thanks x.

  14. Alex Robinson replied:

    Hiya BenI see that damn pyramid every time I pass by this way – was wondering if anyone else would notice it :)Will have some extra info up soonish, that might give you even more to look for in Hyde Park should you get there – take your camera!!Personally I do not understand much about the technical explanation given for the Hadron Collider, but I do not feel that the technical explanation in any way encompasses it's raison d'etre.What is your feeling about it?

  15. Ben Emlyn-Jones replied:

    Alex, I fear that the LHC might be a weaponm dessigned for a "Gotterdammerung" manoeuvre. This first came to my attention when I listened to a Coast-to-Coast show with Jeff Rense, the details of which I can’t quite recall. Jeff said words to the effect of: “If the Illuminati know that they’ve lost, that their domination is over and the New World Order can’t be achieved, then they’re the kind of people who would destroy the Earth before letting free people have it”. I can see where Jeff is coming from; in fact. I’ve observed this kind of dog-in-the-manger attitude at all levels of human conflict. They would certainly do it! Even if it meant their own destruction! Ideally they’d like the world to live on under their jackboot, but if they couldn’t have that then they would destroy the Earth out of spite. They would rather we all went down together than allow the world to live on in freedom. The Illuminati is notoriously self-glorifying and arrogant and defeat is something they've never before had to consider; they see the NWO as their birthright and inevitable destiny. But the way the world is going today, some elements of the Loomies must be beginning to understand that their game is reaching its end. Human consciousness is getting wise to them and starting to fight back. Could the LHC have been developed out of a part of their reaction to this? (One part? Are there other parts?) A part that they have created secretly, allowing the innocent scientists to build unknowingly, unaware that they have really been coopted into creating a Doomsday Device?

    Hi BenThat's not a pleasant thought! They certainly take it very seriously – you don't build something that size for no reason – I do wonder about it's placement too & feel the area is very significant.I propose we say bollocks to them & continue to do our utmost to create a beauty-filled world.I hope you are back in full health now. All the best to you xx

    John Polidori DEFINITELY committed suicide

    Hi Mrs PolidoriThat's certainly what I read at first, but as I feel it's most important to present all the information I find on my travels, I also posted the thoughts of other writers that I later came across. I leave it to individual readers to find their own truth.Cheers

  19. Mrs Polidori replied:

    What conclusion do you believe now? That it was suicide or something else? Because I have several… well, unpublished sources which give very strong evidence for suicide and we must remember that there was no autopsy and the evidence was covered up to preserve the reputation of John's family. Plus, he always talked of suicide.

  20. Mrs Polidori replied:

    And don't forget the several suicide attempts he made through his life.

  21. Alex Robinson replied:

    For my research & the angle I look from, his mode of death is not the issue – he was one of a group of people whose lives took what I can only call amazingly fictious turns – this blending of apparent reality & unreality & past & present is where I'm currently interested. I'm deeply involved in a different article at present & have moved on from this post, but I respect your views & see you have spent much time researching his life, so go with your gut feelings & don't worry about my musings.Cheers

  22. Mrs Polidori replied:

    Okay. It's good to know he interests you so much. Most people have no idea who he is! I would be interested in reading more of your views, blogs, etc… which reminds me, I must update mine soon!
