PHASE 27 - The Waning BiSeptile


QWERTY 975 = ON MOTION TO SUSPEND THE RULES AND PASS S.3729 § VOICE VOTE APPROXIMATELY 06:45PM PT (09:45PM ET), EON-26 • ELECTRONIC VOTE APPROXIMATELY 08:35PM PT (11:35PM ET), EON-27 = ¤ 35 OSMIUM+PALLADIUM ¤ 355 IRIDIUM+PLATINUM ¤ 3555 RUTHENIUM+ RHODIUM ¤ 35555 RHODIUM+RUTHENIUM ¤ 355555 PLATINUM+IRIDIUM ¤ 3555555 PALLADIUM+OSMIUM Ω 4 4 4 4 • (tria capita) = THE NAME 'ANTIMONY' WAS THEN APPLIED ONLY TO THE ORE, WHILE THE TERMS 'REGULUS' OR 'REGULUS OF ANTIMONY' INDICATED THE ANTIMONY METAL = THE TEAM HERE IN MISSION CONTROL IS STILL SCRATCHING ITS HEAD AND TRYING TO DETERMINE WHAT'S BEEN CAUSING THE REPEATED TRANSITIONS = YET, AS I WATCHED APOLLO ONO AND THE US OLYMPIC SHORT TRACK RELAY TEAM I REALIZED THAT THERE IS A FLAW IN JUST HAVING A CLEAN HANDOFF (Pass the Baton).

QWERTY 1322 = THE QUICK VERSION: I SUPPORT THIS BILL, AND I URGE PEOPLE TO CALL THEIR REPRESENTATIVE AND ASK THEM TO VOTE FOR IT. I'VE ALREADY CALLED MY CONGRESSMAN AND ASKED HIM TO SUPPORT IT. THE LONGER VERSION…

QWERTY 1351 = TO MAKE HIS PROPOSAL EASIER TO REMEMBER, BENTHAM DEVISED WHAT HE CALLED A "MNEMONIC DOGGEREL" (ALSO REFERRED TO AS "MEMORITER VERSES"), WHICH SYNTHESIZED "THE WHOLE FABRIC OF MORALS AND LEGISLATION" (felicific calculus).

QWERTY 5336 = SINCE THE WANING TRINE, THE SEED QUALITY UNFOLDING THROUGH THE CYCLIC PROCESS HAS INSPIRED THE FORMULATION AND DISSEMINATION OF NEW SOCIAL AND SPIRITUAL IDEALS. HAVING FACED PERSONAL SHORTCOMINGS EXPOSED IN THE LIGHT OF SUCH IDEALS, AND RESOLUTE TO GO ON INTO A CREATIVE FUTURE, THE ASPIRANT NOW BECOMES ENTHUSIASTICALLY INVOLVED IN THE WORK OF INTRODUCING AND INCORPORATING THE NEW IDEALS INTO THE FABRIC OF THE COMMUNITY. BUT THE RISING MOMENTUM TOWARD GROUP INTEGRATION AND THE SEARCH FOR ULTIMATE MEANING MANY TEMPT THE ARDENT SEEKER TO GO TOO FAR, TOO QUICKLY, PLACING THE ASPIRANT IN JEOPARDY. YET HERE SOME HIGHER FORCE MAY OFFER THE WELL-MEANING AND INNOCENT ASPIRANT UNEXPECTED OR INEXPLICABLE PROTECTION = A KEY PROPERTY OF NON-LINEAR SYSTEMS IS THE APPEARANCE WITHIN THEM OF PHASE TRANSITIONS: FROM SINGLE EQUILIBRIA, TO TWO- FOUR- AND EIGHT-PERIOD REPEATING CYCLES, AND FINALLY TO DETERMINISTIC CHAOS. THESE PHASE TRANSITIONS… ARE QUALITATIVELY DISTINCT, INTERNALLY STABLE, AND CHARACTERIZED BY DEFINITE BOUNDARIES. THE CROSSING OF A BOUNDARY, WE ARE NOW GIVEN TO UNDERSTAND, IS NEVER A "NEW PARADIGM." IT IS MERELY THE CHANGE OF A SINGLE INTEGRATED SYSTEM FROM ONE STATE TO ANOTHER. THUS THE REGULATORY PROBLEM CAN BE SEEN AS THAT OF MAINTAINING THE SYSTEM WITHIN A STABLE (AND RELATIVELY DESIRABLE) PHASE-EITHER HEDGE OR SPECULATIVE-AND WELL AWAY FROM THE PHASE BOUNDARY ASSOCIATED WITH PONZI FINANCE AND INEVITABLE COLLAPSE (Who Are These Economists, Anyway?)

QWERTY 2015 = DYNAMIC: AS THE POWER OF INTEGRATION MOUNTS, THE COSMOS EMPOWERS THOSE IN TUNE WITH ITS HARMONY, AND, BY CONTRAST, EXPOSES THE DISCORDANT PATH OF DISINTEGRATION. ONCE AGAIN, THE ARDENT AND STEADFAST ASPIRANT MAY EXPERIENCE FOR A MOMENT THE ALL-REVEALING LIGHT OF WHOLENESS = NEWTON SAID THAT THE BEST WATER WAS DRAWN "…BY THE POWER OF OUR SULPHUR WHICH LIES HID IN ANTIMONY. FOR ANTIMONY WAS CALLED ARIES WITH THE ANCIENTS. BECAUSE ARIES IS THE FIRST ZODIAC SIGN IN WHICH THE SUN BEGINS TO BE EXALTED AND GOLD IS EXALTED MOST OF ALL IN ANTIMONY" = THOSE WHO DO NOT ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE CAUGHT IN THE SYMBOLIC DECEPTION/FICTION, WHO CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THEIR EYES, ARE THE ONES WHO ERR MOST. A CYNIC WHO 'BELIEVES ONLY HIS EYES' MISSES THE EFFICIENCY OF THE SYMBOLIC FICTION, AND HOW IT STRUCTURES OUR EXPERIENCE OF REALITY ({47} Capitalist Realism).

QWERTY 1933 = HAVING FACED PERSONAL SHORTCOMINGS EXPOSED IN THE LIGHT OF SUCH IDEALS, AND RESOLUTE TO GO ON INTO A CREATIVE FUTURE, THE ASPIRANT NOW BECOMES ENTHUSIASTICALLY INVOLVED IN THE WORK OF INTRODUCING AND INCORPORATING THE NEW IDEALS INTO THE FABRIC OF THE COMMUNITY = AS THE POWER OF INTEGRATION MOUNTS, THE COSMOS EMPOWERS THOSE IN TUNE WITH ITS HARMONY, AND, BY CONTRAST, EXPOSES THE DISCORDANT PATH OF DISINTEGRATION. ONCE AGAIN, THE ARDENT AND STEADFAST ASPIRANT MAY EXPERIENCE FOR A MOMENT THE ALL-REVEALING LIGHT OF WHOLENESS = LARGE ISSUES HAVE BEEN FACED, DECISIONS MADE, AND THE DIRECTION SET, EITHER BY ACTIVE CHOICE OR BY DEFAULT. IF THIS PHASE IS MET IN A COURAGEOUS, FUTUREWARD SPIRIT, A GROWING WILL TEMPERS THE ACTUALIZING NEW QUALITIES OF BEING UNFOLDING THROUGH THE CYCLIC PROCESS (PHASE 11 - The Waxing BiSeptile) = THERE IS A SAFETY HAZARD ZONE EXTENDING TWENTY-FIVE METERS FROM THE SHIP. SPECIAL TEAMS ARE EXEMPT AND SHOULD BE AWARE OF LOW GRAVITY. EXPECT SOME DIZZINESS AND LOOK OUT FOR STATIC CHARGE. ALL DEPARTMENTS THAT ARE OPERATIONAL DURING THIS PHASE, SIGNIFY BY BEEPING TWICE (Close Encounters of the Third Kind).

QWERTY 1743 = BUT A GROWING SENSE OF BEING OVERSHADOWED AND PROTECTED BY UNSEEN, EVER-PRESENT COSMIC FORCES MAY DEVELOP A PSYCHOLOGICAL DEPENDENCY UPON "FATEFUL" OR COSMIC SIGNS AND SYMBOLS SHOWING A COURSE TO PURSUE OR AN ACTION TO PERFORM = IN ANOTHER DARK PASSAGE, WHICH ALLUDES TO THE PHILOSOPHERS' MERCURY AND ITS REPLACEMENT BY THE SUN, I.E., GOLD, DEE ASSERTS THAT THIS OPERATION (WHICH IS THE FINAL STAGE IN THE TRANSMUTATION OF METALS) CAN NO LONGER BE PERFORMED IN THE PRESENT AGE (Excerpt from C. H. Josten, A Translation of John Dee's "Monas Hieroglyphica") [+].

QWERTY 1476 = IF THE NEW QUALITY WASN'T SUCCESSFULLY REALIZED AT THE OPPOSITION, AND ITS IMPLICATIONS WEREN'T FACED DURING THE PREVIOUS PHASES, A SENSE OF BEING OVERWHELMED OR VICTIMIZED BY GREATER FORCES MAY BE FELT = AND ABOVE ME APPEARS THE STARRY HEAVEN OF NIGHT, AND ONE STAR GREATER THAN ALL THE OTHER STARS. IT IS A STAR OF EIGHT RAYS. I RECOGNIZE IT AS THE STAR IN THE SEVENTEENTH KEY OF THE TAROT, AS THE STAR OF MERCURY = 'YOU DECIDE' - CAPTURES PERFECTLY THE MODE OF CONTROL BY FEEDBACK THAT, ACCORDING TO BAUDRILLARD, HAS REPLACED OLD CENTRALIZED FORMS OF POWER. WE OURSELVES OCCUPY THE EMPTY SEAT OF POWER… ({48} Capitalist Realism).

QWERTY 1408 = IF THE PROCESS OF UNFOLDMENT HAS DEVELOPED ALONG MOSTLY SUCCESSFUL LINES, THE ASPIRANT NOW BECOMES AWARE OF ACTING AS A CONSCIOUS AGENT FOR THE ACTUALIZATION OF A NEW IDEAL ON A SOCIAL SCALE = NO ACTUALLY ACCARDO IS THE SECOND DEMON OF PAGANINI IN FACT . KNOW? WHY? HE HAS RECORDED ALL 24 CAPRICES, ALL SIX CONCERTOS AND PLAYED THIS SONG, AND HE OWNS PAGANINI'S VIOLIN, WHICH HE DESERVES TO HAVE! = THAT ELIZABETH SHOULD BE GIVEN ATTRIBUTES NOT ONLY OF THE MUTABLE ASTRAEA BUT ALSO OF OTHER MYTHOLOGICAL GODDESSES SUGGESTS SOMETHING OF HER FOLLOWERS' LOVE OF MULTILAYERED SYMBOLISM = THE PROBLEM IS THAT PASHTUNS DO NOT WANT OUTREACH OR EVEN GOOD "GOVERNANCE" - WHATEVER THAT MEANS. THEY ARE VERY CLEAR THAT THEY WANT SECURITY AND WILL BE LOYAL TO WHOEVER PROVIDES IT (NightWatch).

QWERTY 1363 = OTHER THAN EMBRACING EMERGENT IDEALS INSPIRED BY THE NEW QUALITY, A FERVENT ESCAPE TO THE SAFE AND SECURE WAYS OF THE PAST MAY SEEM THE ONLY RELEASE FROM AN UNBEARABLE SITUATION = IN FIGURE 8 THE ORIGINAL DENSITIES OF 100 TO 125 WERE MAPPED OR EXPANDED TO I TO 256 LEVELS OF GREY TO DEMONSTRATE EXTREMELY SUBTLE OPTICAL DENSITY CHANGES, MAINLY IN THE AREA OF THE DISC'S DARK REGIONS AND EDGE = NSA'S BRILLIANT AND ONLY NIO FOR WARNING, DAVID Y MCMANUS, COMMENTED OVER 25 YEARS AGO THAT INFORMATION COULD BE COLLECTED AND DISTRIBUTED FASTER THAN IT COULD BE EVALUATED = THAT IS TO DISASSEMBLE "NOW," THE SITUATION AT THE MOMENT, SEPARATING THE KNOWN FROM THE UNCLEAR AND BOTH FROM THE PRESUMED (PRESUMED, THAT IS, BY THOSE WHO THINK THEY HAVE A PROBLEM) (Neustadt & May) = YET IN ANY INSTANCE, SEEDS OF THE ILLUSION OF SEPARATION, AND EXPLOITATION OF RELATIONSHIPS FOR SELF-GRATIFICATION, MAY BE SOWN IF ONE RESISTS THE RISE OF INGATHERING, COMMUNAL FORCES EXPERIENCED HERE (PHASE 20 - The Waning QuadNovile).

QWERTY 1184 = SINCE THE WANING TRINE, THE SEED QUALITY UNFOLDING THROUGH THE CYCLIC PROCESS HAS INSPIRED THE FORMULATION AND DISSEMINATION OF NEW SOCIAL AND SPIRITUAL IDEALS = FOR NOW, NOURISHMENT AND CULTIVATION SUPPORTS THE RAPIDLY EXPANDING MOVEMENT OF DIFFERENTIATION WHILE THE GROWING PROCESS ACHIEVES SUBSTANCE AND MOMENTUM (PHASE 4 - The Waxing Novile) = THAT'S WHY I'M GOING OUT AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME, BECAUSE THAT WAY, IF YOU STAND ME UP, AT LEAST I WON'T HAVE CHANGED MY RESERVATION JUST TO GET STOOD UP = THE CRISIS CONSISTS PRECISELY IN THE FACT THAT THE OLD IS DYING AND THE NEW CANNOT BE BORN; IN THIS INTERREGNUM A GREAT VARIETY OF MORBID SYMPTOMS APPEAR (Antonio Gramsci • Marxism without Marx) = THE PRIMARY KRONOTYPES WERE SEVEN, AND THUS THE BEGINNING OF TIME IN HEAVEN IS BASED ON THE NUMBER AND THE NAME OF SEVEN, ON ACCOUNT OF THE STARRY DEMONSTRATORS (The Secret Doctrine • Typology of Time," Vol. II. p. 313, Nat. Gen.).

QWERTY 1157 = KEYNOTE: THE COSMOS ACCEPTS AND PROTECTS THOSE DEDICATED TO THE PATH OF TRANSFORMATION, EMPOWERING THEM TO ILLUMINATE THE WAY TO A CREATIVE NEW DAY = ME: BEHOLD, WHERE UNTO THY EARTHLY MAN WOLD SEDUCE THEE. DOST THOW THINK, THAT IF IT PLEAS GOD, IT SHALL NOT PLEASE THE PRINCE? IF IT BE NECESSARIE, ALL READY PREPARED = SAFFRON OF ANTIMONY = GOLDEN SULPHIDE OF ANTIMONY, OR GOLDEN SULPHURET OF ANTIMONY, THE PENTASULPHIDE OF ANTIMONY, WHICH IS OF A GOLDEN OR ORANGE YELLOW POWDER. (Antimony in alchemy) = THUS LITURGICAL BEDAZZLEMENTS ARE INFERIOR AND POSTERIOR TO MORAL EDUCATION, AND THAT DOES NOT MERELY MEAN THAT CULT "COMES AFTER" MORAL EDUCATION (The Tragic Absolute: German Idealism and the Languishing of God, 33).

QWERTY 1151 = AS THE POWER OF INTEGRATION MOUNTS, THE COSMOS EMPOWERS THOSE IN TUNE WITH ITS HARMONY, AND, BY CONTRAST, EXPOSES THE DISCORDANT PATH OF DISINTEGRATION = USING THE LOCATION ON THE GROUND WHERE DEFINED CLOUDS PRODUCE SHADOWS, STRAIGHT (SUN) LINES WERE DRAWN, ALL OF WHICH SHOULD POINT BACK TOWARD THE SUN.
