Smoke and Sugar

The odd sync web connecting lost planes and people—Lauren Bacall, Robin Williams, and Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.

It all began on 7/18 I when saw this Twitter post showing the female form as a wisp of smoke.

The same day there was an epic R.J. Reynolds lawsuit settlement awarded to a smoker's widow in Florida.

Note: The feminine smoke figure on the box of Capri cigarettes in this photo.

I had an offhand thought about smoke and air, and how the smoke syncs could be related to The Smoke Monster in the TV show Lost (note: more AIRplanes falling out of the sky this past month in UkraineIran and Brazil).

On 8/4, fellow sync blogger Merovee posted this pic of a man smoking a cigarette with the smoke trail forming a woman's face.

Turns out, the man in the pic was Humphrey Bogart and the woman was his wife Lauren Bacall.  Bacall passed away a week later on 8/12, the same day as famed comic Robin Williams.

Lauren BAcall (thanks Jason). In ancient Egyptian beliefs the BA was the soul or spirit.

Robin Williams' joyful comedy lifted our spirits in so many ways.  In both he and Bacall's deaths we symbolically see the loss of two original, fundamental creating principles of a divine nature—Beauty and Joy.

Like a lifeless body devoid of the invigorating breath of life (note: BREATH/AIR is choked out by smoke), Form without the animating principle of Spirit/Beauty/ dead.

On 8/7, Twitter notified me that I had a new follower. When I clicked on it, this was her profile header:

I also noticed a smoke sync on the new HBO series "The Leftovers", a show about the aftermath of a rapture-like event where random people around the world are LOST when they simply vanish into thin AIR.

On "The Leftovers" a weird cult called The Guilty Remnant wear all-white and chain smoke.
In the FAQ of the fictional Guilty Remnant's website they state: “God’s judgment is upon us.
We don’t expect to be around for very long.” Chain-smoking is the GR’s way of showing
the world that they’ve accepted this fact and aren’t afraid to face whatever’s coming.

On 8/9, an unarmed African American teenager, Michael Brown, was shot and killed on the street by police in Ferguson, MO.

Protests erupted and soon photos emerged of cops releasing tear gas on crowds of people rioting in the neighborhood.

Today 8/15...Ferguson police say Michael Brown was allegedly suspected of stealing a $48.99 box of Swisher Sweets CIGARS.

Rectify (Get On Up)

"The savior's descent is necessary to effect rectification".

If you've been following this blog you know I've been writing a lot about the TV show "Rectify" in my last few posts.

In my next post I'll offer a fuller explanation of how the show Rectify is a modern spin on the idea of the Gnostic process of rectification, and how that process is reflected in the events playing out in the world at this time.

But for now here's a sneak preview.

Passage from The Coptic Gnostic Library: A Complete Edition of the Nag Hammadi

I previously described this process as an ascension, but, of course, every ascension must first begin with a descent.

As the late James Brown brilliantly showed us, you can't "Get On Up" unless you were down in the first place.

James Cameron is the first person to have made a solo descent into the depths of the Mariana Trench. His movie about the adventure, Deepsea Challenge, hits U.S. theaters today (Friday 8/8/14).


The Mariana Trench is located southeast of Guam. Notably, Anderson Air Force Base in Guam is one of the locations where some speculate missing Flight MH370 may have been forced to land (decend).

The trench is 7 miles (11km) deep. In the above article, James Cameron said:
"It's unbelievable, it's like the MOON."
In other news, on 8/3/2014 another man made a "first decent".  Ebola virus victim Dr. Kent Brantley stepped down from the ambulance onto the ground outside an Atlanta (Atlantis) hospital.

Wearing a full hazmat suit, the scene was intentionally reminiscent of astronaut Neil Armstrong's first decent down the ladder of the Apollo 11 space craft to the cratered surface of the MOON.

On July 20, 1969, Commander Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon.

Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon.

Brantly is 33 years-old, the same age Christian's believe their savior god Jesus Christ was at the time of his death.  In this video posted by an eyewitness at the scene, note the woman in the background repeatedly exclaiming, "That's him. Oh my God."

In a rush to weave the moment into myth, a CNN reporter wrote:
"The sight of Dr. Kent Brantly, a victim of the Ebola virus, walking from an ambulance to the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta in his hazmat suit may become an iconic photo of modern American history."
More in my next post. To be continued...
