postcards from pomona

eyebrows plucked, bathroom cleaned, aloe vera plant overwatered ... i was set to go. just had to shower, mop kitchen floor & load up the car. but i wouldn't be me if i didn't have an anxiety attack! this time for just about everything. never been before a judge before. i can count the number of moving violations i've gotten on one hand since i started driving thirty years ago (latest one written up by CHP officer named Eron, i think). so i watched tv tracking Comair, NASA, Katrina & Ernesto. totally spazzed. déjà vu. at one point, half-dreaming about burger & hershey pie from burger king. woke up around 7pm dreading phone calls. however, that was pretty easy. mom said stop spazzing & brother-in-law confirmed non-scenic driving plan. showered, took first load to car & emptied trash. got that burger & hershey pie (make that two hershey pies). started floor mopping. need to leave by 9am. click ruby slippers three times & repeat: i need to leave by 9am tomorrow.

so, here's weather & launch updates. earlier, this seemed kinda funny for some reason: NASA Delays Decision on Delaying Decision. NASA's Bill Gerstenmaier said earlier they had "two competing objectives ... and they are not compatible". before i went to sleep for good, NASA rolled out that transfer pad thingy to carry Atlantis back to the VAB. just in case. but i love this, "we really haven't lost our minds".

"NASA rules mandate that the shuttle be removed from its seaside launch pad and returned to a cavernous assembly building for safekeeping about two days prior to winds forecast to reach speeds of at least 58 miles per hour (93-kph)."

currently, ernesto is a tropical storm forecast to travel up through Florida peninsula after crossing Haiti & Cuba. forecasting intensity kinda difficult. if ernesto doesn't reorganize after Haiti / before Cuba "it is possible that not a lot will be left of the cyclone when it emerges into the Florida straits ... however ... the official forecast will assume a vigorous restrengthening overnight tonight and a substantial cyclone surviving the passage over Cuba". ernesto's center located 45m from Guantanamo, Cuba & will make landfall along southeastern Cuba later this morning. "possible landfall along the southern peninsula of Florida in about 48 hours" (that sounds pretty solid); intensity forecast, however, remains complicated. depending on when/how ernesto exits Cuba, conditions show it may have enough time to build itself up into a cat 2 or cat 3 hurricane before landfall {more}.

checked kamma/karma (most important, Crowley's Science & Buddhism (pdf / google cache / another html version) & 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. this needs sorting, but decided to go to bed. of course, after signing off finally made some connections. got back online & worked out more gematria. the other day worked this out (APOLLO GENETOR caught my attention):

AQ 592 = LIGHTNING STRIKE FRIDAY, 25-AUGUST-2006 = BLOODLESS ALTAR OF APOLLO GENETOR (GENETOR = Begetter, Ancestor) = IF THERE WAS A GOD IT WOULD BE AXSYS = LAST BRIDGE ACROSS THE RIVER RHINE = MACHIAVELLIAN POLITICAL STRATEGY = MANIFESTATION IMPLIES ILLUSION (The other form of Thoth represents him primarily as Wisdom and the Word. He bears in his right hand the Style, in his left the Papyrus. He is the messenger of the gods; he transmits their will by hieroglyphs intelligible to the initiate, and records their acts; but it was seen from very early times that the use of speech, or writing, meant the introduction of ambiguity at the best, and falsehood at the worst; they therefore represented Thoth as followed by an ape, the cynocephalus, whose business was to distort the Word of the god; to mock, to simulate and to deceive. In philosophical language one may say: Manifestation implies illusion. This doctrine is found in Hindu philosophy, where the aspect of Tahuti of which we are speaking is called Mayan. This doctrine is also found in the central and typical image of the Mahayana school of Buddhism (really identical with the doctrine of Shiva and Shakti). A vision of this image will be found in the document entitled "The Lord of Illusion" —Book of Thoth: 0. THE FOOL) [+] = NOTHING IS A SECRET KEY OF THIS LAW [+] = PROGRESSIVE GENETIC "EVOLUTION" = TARGET SYSTEM DEVELOPER (ISLAMIC) (Software Development Kit).

AQ 272 = APOLLO GENETOR = A SCANNER DARKLY (Philip K. Dick) = PREDICT LANDFALL = BECOMING-LATERAL (bmr) = BEING SPORTING = BIO-MATERIALISM (Logiques des mondes) = BURDEN OF PROOF (contrat première embauche) = CUBE IN THE CIRCLE = DATABASE TRIGGER = ECONOMIC WEALTH = INTERMITTENCE = JOY IN THE DOING (Abuldiz) = LINGOSPASMING = OLD ONE DISEASES = OUT OF MANY, ONE = PROTEIN TREES = SAINT CATHERINE = THE GREEN STONE = TUBERCULOSIS = VOLUPTUOUS = WHAT'S THE WORD? = YOU ARE SILENT (Silence, Delerium with Sarah McLachlan) [+].

no, didn't know this before-hand:

AQ 317 = LIGHTNING STRIKE = THE PINA COLADA SONG [+].

critical connection is the altar of the Princess of Swords [+] & the "bloodless altar" (where no sacrifice is required). The Book of Thoth displays & mentions an altar for AQ 320 = PRINCESS OF WANDS, AQ 321 = PRINCESS OF DISKS & AQ 366 = PRINCESS OF SWORDS — but not AQ 309 = PRINCESS OF CUPS. btw, each princess rules a 90° quadrant of the north pole [+].

AQ 309 = PRINCESS OF CUPS = THE FLAMING SWORD.

& of course the flaming sword is related to the lightning strike (have to check, is this a golden dawn / hermetic only thing? cherubim in genesis have the flaming sword & Ezekiel saw flashes of lightning, blah blah).

i must snooze.
