Dreamtime Nus

In conjunction with the Artwork and Commentaries on this website, Dreamtime Nus illuminates a Current running through our Consciousness. A Story we are all creating and a flow that unites us. We can choose to fight this flow in favour of ego and isolation, or embrace it towards Love and Union.

Awareness and action, love and will, are essential to our progression.

Where there is no vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29:18

If your attention is in the third eye, just imagination is enough to create any phenomena. Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise. Liber AL ch. II, v. 32.

-12th of October, The birth of the Magus Aleister Crowley – To Mega Therion, in Warwickshire, England.

Aleister Crowley

3rd Eye Crowley

 

“Man is at the crossroads. Crowley’s passionate urge to save mankind was no mere idealistic pose to appear as a redeemer. He was imbued with the idea of saving mankind from the impending disasters which he supposed would follow upon the non-acceptance, by humanity, of the Law of Thelema as expressed in AL. He saw the prophecies and warnings of AL clearly reflected in the trend of his times. He wanted to save man from the consequences of misusing the tremendous forces that the New Aeon will make available, forces which – once unleashed – will result in a catastrophe beside which that of Atlantis diminishes to non-entity. This was associated in Crowley’s mind with the publication of AL and with the voluminous Comment that he was preparing in Tunis. Writing to Frater O.P.V. in May 1942, Crowley remarked: “It will be fatal to hurry the work of the Comment and associated publications. If these are done perfectly, Thelema may bring to mankind several thousand years of unparalleled spiritual development. But if they are bungled, the Aeon may collapse in less than a hundred years.”

“That collapse does not seem far off today.” Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God, Kenneth Grant

-The late 1800’s witnessed the colonization of Africa by the British. According to Carl G. Jung, who visited a primitive tribe in East Africa and writes of the experience in his book, ‘Man and his Symbols’, this period saw the cessation of the Chief and Medicine Man’s meaningful dreams. Jung was told the British official, The District Commissioner, now had the function of dreaming the tribes “great dreams”, thereby determining their behaviour.

Its commands as to how the work ought to be done were not wholly obeyed…. Yet, even so, the intrinsic power of the truth of the Law and the impact of publication were sufficient to shake the world, so that a critical war broke out, and the minds of men were moved in a mysterious manner.” Magick Without Tears, Aleister Crowley.



1913 E.V.

-23rd of September, The Second Publication of Liber AL, “nine months before the outbreak of the World War, which broke up the West.

2004 E.V.

-2nd of July, Inauguration of the first 3rdeyeart-work, The HermitAnother prophet shall arise, and bring fresh fever from the skies. It wasn’t until painting The Lover and the subsequent 2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season that I realised the correspondence between these works and fresh fever from the skies as prophesied in Liber AL.

The current era of extreme Hurricane activity in the Atlantic Basin commenced in 1995, with a dramatic increase in the number of Tropical Storms and Hurricanes, along with an Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) total of 228 for the Season. Prior to this, the last time the ACE reached over 200 was in 1961. While only another four sporadic occurrences can be found since records began in 1851. In 2004 the Atlantic Hurricane Season saw an Accumulated Cyclone Energy total of 227 and the first time since 1995 that the ACE exceeded 200; hence the prophecy fresh fever. This was followed by the all-time record of 250 for the 2005 Season. Not once in 160 years of data is there another instance of two consecutive years with an ACE over 200. With 2004 seeing the creation of the first 3rdeyeart-works and 2005 the birth of 3rdeyeart.com, we have here the beginning of an intimate relationship between this work and fresh fever from the skies.

-31st of July, Marking the fifth latest start since 1952, Alex, the first named Storm of the 2004 Atlantic Hurricane Season forms. Significantly, the ’04 Season was the first time four Hurricanes have hit one State in one Season since 1886, and despite a weak El Niño arising in August the month also saw a record 8 Storms. In fact, the Season was well above the (1950-2000) average of 11 Named Storms, 6 Hurricanes and 2.5 Major Hurricanes (Category 3-5), with 15 Named Storms, 9 Hurricanes and 6 Major Hurricanes. At its conclusion, the ’04 Season resulted in one of the highest Accumulated Cyclone Energy totals ever seen, and was also one of the costliest and deadliest of the previous decade.

-8th of August, Initial completion of The Hermit, then known as ‘The Search’.

-9th of August, The Storm that would become Hurricane Charley develops. Category 4 Hurricane Charley was the strongest Hurricane to hit the U.S. since Andrew in 1992. With a damage bill of approximately $14 billion it was also the second costliest Hurricane of its time. Lasting six days, Charley was downgraded to a Tropical Storm on the 14th of August.

-25th of August, Tropical Storm Frances is named. Frances became a slow-moving Category 4 Hurricane at its peak, before being downgraded to a Tropical Storm on the 5th of September. With a damage bill of at least $9 billion, Frances was the fourth costliest Hurricane in U.S. history. Also of note, Frances evolved into 101 Tornadoes as it proceeded to make its way through the U.S.

-2nd of September, Hurricane Ivan forms. The only Category 5 Hurricane of the Season, Ivan lasted sixteen days before being downgraded to a Tropical Storm on the 16th and dissipating inland on the 24th of September.

-6th of September, I started painting The Man of Earth.

-7th of September, The majority of Hurricane Frances’ 101 remnant Tornadoes strike North and South Carolina. 

-13th of September, A Tropical Depression that would go on to become Hurricane Jeanne forms. Category 3 at its peak, Jeanne lasted fourteen days before being downgraded to a Tropical Storm on the 26th of September.

-16th of September, Tropical Storm Karl forms. Karl quickly developed into a Category 4 Hurricane before being downgraded to Extra-tropical status on the 25th of September.

-8th of October, I received a reply to the second letter I’d sent to Kenneth Grant. A response that has proved remarkably insightful, both eight years ago, and also in light of recent developments regarding The Amalantrah Working discussed in The Going Forth By Day Commentary. We are to go to Egypt for the Key. The key might be in centre of egg when it is broken. It is a small golden key. The Amalantrah Working, Aleister Crowley

Second letter received from Kenneth Grant

 

This letter was unmistakably composed on a typewriter; somewhat suggestively, the word counsellor is misspelled:

counsee llor – with two letter L’s sitting atop the two E’s, reads see L. That is, L, the shape the three canvases form when ordered as per the instructions in Liber AL. Received at a time when I’d only just begun the second painting in the series! Furthermore, there is only one letter E in counsellor, and Kenneth Grant was an accomplished, professional writer.

The graphic work is a reference to a photo of the newly completed Hermit canvas, along with an early ultra-violet version of the Nuit image.

*Note, the address has been removed from just underneath my name, i.e. J. Iceton, Esq.,

“Oblique to the paths that give on to other dimensions, and beyond them, there lies a region which the author has named the Mauve Zone. Mystics, magicians, sorcerers, alchemists, artists of many kinds have – over the centuries – skirted it, stumbled upon it, and fled from it. Very few have penetrated beyond it and survived, or cared to leave any record of the experience. Those who did, have had to present their accounts as fiction or discover a new means of communication – via weird art, symbols, hieroglyphics, signs which fellow pilgrims alone might recognise.”

“Access to the Mauve Zone has been facilitated in more recent times by the use of magical systems developed by occultists such as Austin Osman Spare and Aleister Crowley, both of whom established contact with inter-dimensional entities possessed of transhuman knowledge and power. Both systems involve the use of sexual magick to open hidden gates that have remained sealed for centuries.” Beyond the Mauve Zone, Kenneth Grant

-28th of October, Saw original completion of The Man of Earth.

-November, I started a relationship with Nephthys v 1.0.

-26th of December, Just two months after completion of The Man of Earth, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Sumatra, causing a massive Tsunami and tremors in Indonesia and Southern Thailand; tragically resulting in the deaths of over 100,000 people in Indonesia and over 5,000 in Thailand.



2005 E.V.

-3rd of February, Tropical Cyclone Harvey forms. Category 3 at its peak, Harvey lasted five days before being downgraded on the 7th of February.

-16th of February, I finalised illustration of The Lover, painting promptly ensued.

-4th of March, Tropical Cyclone Ingrid forms. Category 5 Ingrid became the only severe Tropical Cyclone in recorded history to impact the coastline of three separate States or Territories – Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia. Ingrid lasted fourteen days before weakening below Cyclone intensity on the 17th of March.

-9th of March, Tropical Cyclone Willy forms. Category 3 at its peak, Willy lasted six days before weakening below Cyclone intensity on the 14th of March.

-1st of April, Tropical Cyclone Adeline-Juliet forms. Category 4 at its peak, Adeline-Juliet lasted thirteen days before weakening on the 13th of April.

-27th of June, Nearing completion, illumination dawned of the marriage between verse 74 from chapter III of Liber AL and Horus on The Lover canvas. Quickly proceeded by further revelation of a fusion betwixt the paintings when positioned as instructed in the previous verse:

73. Paste the sheets from right to left and from top to bottom: then behold!

74. There is a splendour in my name hidden and glorious, as the sun of midnight is ever the son.

-30th of June, I discussed plans to create this website (v 1.0) with a friend after a Team Sleep concert.

-5th of July, Biggest start to the Atlantic Hurricane Season ever with 4 Named Storms, including what would become Category 4 Hurricane Dennis. At its conclusion, the 2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season broke many records. With 27 Tropical Storms, 15 Hurricanes and 7 Major Hurricanes (4 of these being Category 5 Hurricanes) ’05 ranked well above the average 11 Tropical Storms, 6 Hurricanes and 2.5 Major Hurricanes. Furthermore, 2005 saw an all-time record Accumulated Cyclone Energy Total of 250, or 285% of the 1950-2005 median. Also of note, Hurricane Katrina, the most expensive and destructive Atlantic Basin Hurricane ever recorded, and Hurricane Wilma, the most intense Atlantic Basin Hurricane recorded, both struck in the ’05 Season.

Another prophet shall arise, and bring fresh fever from the skies… Liber AL ch. III v.34

-11th of July, Following work on all three images, The Hermit, The Lover, and The Man of Earth, for upcoming photography, this day saw initial completion of The Lover.

-Hurricane Emily forms. Category 5 at its peak, Emily lasted ten days before weakening to a Tropical Storm on the 20th of July. Emily is the earliest-forming Category 5 Atlantic Basin Hurricane.

-4th of August, Hurricane Irene forms. Category 2 at its peak, Irene lasted fifteen days before weakening to a Tropical Storm on the 18th of August.

-25th of August, Hurricane Katrina, the eleventh Named Tropical Storm of the Season made landfall north of Miami Florida. Category 5 at its peak, Hurricane Katrina was one of the most destructive and expensive natural disasters in the history of the United States. Resulting in a humanitarian crisis unseen since the stock-market crash of 1929 and the resulting Great Depression. The information age propelled Hurricane Katrina and its tragic aftermath into the Consciousness of the Collective. Facilitating, perhaps for the first time, a dialogue and increased awareness of the consequences of our actions (and inactions!) on a Global scale. Six months later An Inconvenient Truth was released.

-1st of September, Hurricane Maria forms. Category 3 at its peak, Maria lasted nine days before being downgraded to a Tropical Storm on the 9th of September.

-18th of September, Hurricane Rita forms. Category 5 at its peak, Rita caused approximately $12 billion in damages and lasted seven days before weakening to a Tropical Storm on the 24th of September.

-22nd of September, The Hermit, The Lover, and The Man of Earth are photographed in preparation for go-live.

-3rd of October, The birth of 3rdeyeart.com.

-Solar Eclipse.

-21st of October, Hurricane Wilma, the twenty-first Named Storm, twelfth Hurricane and fourth Category 5 Hurricane of the year, made landfall on the Yucatan Peninsula before moving on to Cuba and the United States.

-24th of October, Hurricane Wilma hits Florida as a Category 3 Storm. The third costliest Hurricane in U.S. history, Wilma caused $20.6 billion worth of damage in the U.S. alone.

-26th of October, Having by now exhausted the alphabet, seeing Tropical Storm Alpha on the 22nd of October, Hurricane Beta forms. Category 3 at its peak, Beta lasted six days before dissipating on the 31st of October.

-6th of November, A severe Tornado strikes Broken Hill with winds of up to 150-200km/h, inducing the New South Wales Government to declare the location a natural disaster area. According to an observer, it was “Like the tornadoes you see on TV in America”.

-A Tornado tore through Evansville, Indiana in the middle of the night.

-18th of November, Tropical Cyclone Bertie-Alvin forms. Category 4 at its peak, Bertie-Alvin lasted six days before weakening on the 23rd of November.

-30th of November, Sees conclusion of the costliest Atlantic Hurricane Season on record, with over $100 billion in damages in the U.S. alone.

-2nd of December, Tornadoes damaged hundreds of homes and businesses in Australia’s Capital City Canberra. As depicted in The Lover, one eyewitness claimed he saw dark green clouds form the Tornadoes.

-6th of December, Approaching the Kundry days, Nephthys v 1.0 and I were watching the film Waking Life at 1.30am. When a character was discussing Philip K Dick’s idea that, “A demiurge created the illusion of time to make people forget…” when the loudest clap of thunder I’ve heard literally shook the ground, the T.V. went blank, and the speaker’s silent. “Never in my life!” exclaimed Nephthys. Turning the T.V. back on to hear the rest of the sentence, “Christ is about to return, and the Kingdom of God was about to arrive”.

-29th of December, I posted a third series of letters to various Australian Media outlets regarding the ramifications of this work, prophecy and Liber AL.

Another prophet shall arise, and bring fresh fever from the skies… Liber AL ch. III v.34

Unfortunately, I received no response to this or the previous two series of letters.



2006 E.V.

-6th of January, Tropical Cyclone Clare forms. Category 2 at its peak, Clare lasted six days before weakening below Cyclone intensity on the 11th of January.

-8th of January, Tropical Cyclone Kerry forms. Category 3 at its peak, Kerry lasted ten days before weakening on the 17th of January.

-26th of January, A mini Tornado and Storm swept across the eastern suburbs of Melbourne between 5.30pm and 7.30pm. Damaging over 20 homes in Main St Blackburn. The same location the psylocibes taken on the 25th of April 2003 were collected. The reportedly sudden Storm struck exactly as I was stretching a fresh canvas to paint the Nuit image. Blackburn is not listed in traditional Tornado paths.

-27th of January, Tropical Cyclone Jim forms. Category 3 at its peak, Jim lasted six days before weakening on the 1st of February.

-12th of March, A reported 140 Tornadoes unleash their fury across the Central United States.

-18th of March, Tropical Cyclone Floyd forms. Category 4 at its peak, Floyd lasted nine days before weakening below Cyclone intensity on the 26th of March.

-19th of March, Tropical Cyclone Wati forms. Category 3 at its peak, Wati lasted seven days before turning Extra-tropical on the 25th of March.

-20th of March, Tropical Cyclone Larry hits North Queensland devastating the region between Townsville and Cairns. With wind gusts of up to 294km/h and damage estimated at $1.5 billion, the Category 5 Cyclone was the worst to hit the state in 80 years.

-26th of March, Indigenous Australians in Kings Domain, Royal Botanical Gardens, Melbourne, are defiant over the right to maintain their camp. Reportedly set up for the course of the ‘Stolen-wealth Games’ to draw attention to the ignorance toward Indigenous Australians and their culture by ‘The Crown’. The group campaigned under the slogan Black G.S.T. Standing for Genocide to end, Sovereignty acknowledged, Treaty to be made. Indigenous Victorians have been returned less than one-half of a percent of their ancestral land, ‘traded’ by English immigrants in exchange for flour and sugar.

-27th of March, Tropical Cyclone Glenda forms. Category 5 at its peak, Glenda lasted five days before being downgraded below Cyclone intensity on the 31st of March.

-2nd of April, Tropical Cyclone Hubert forms. Category 2 at its peak, Hubert lasted six days before weakening on the 7th of April.

- The second outbreak of the year sees a reported 86 Tornadoes strike the Central United States.

-6th of April, The Nuit painting is photographed.

-7th of April, As many as 71 Tornadoes hit the United States.

-10th of April, I gave my web-designer a digital copy of Nuit, along with Nus updates. Although I don’t have an exact record of the go-live date, Tropical Cyclone Monica potentially coincided with publishing this artwork.

-17th of April, Tropical Cyclone Monica forms. Category 5 at its peak, with winds of 69 m/s (135 knots), the Australian Bureau of Meteorology advises Monica was the highest intensity of any Cyclone in the Australian Region. Monica lasted nine days before weakening to a Tropical Low on the 25th of April.

-22nd of April, I visited Camp Sovereignty at Kings Domain. Warmly received, I was lucky enough to participate in a traditional Welcoming Ceremony conducted by Mr Robbie Thorpe around the campfire. Claimed to be the oldest of its type in the world, the Ceremony features Indigenous Australian’s Creation Spirit – The Rainbow Serpent.

-11th of May, after 60 days the Camp Sovereignty Fire at Kings Domain is extinguished. Mr Thorpe warned authorities against moving the Sacred Fire, “Let them mess around with that, it will curse this whole town”.

-10th of June, The first Named Storm of the 2006 Atlantic Hurricane Season, Tropical Storm Alberto forms. Following on from a dramatic Season in ’05, thankfully forecasters’ estimates of only a slightly less active Season were proved wrong. With the ’06 Hurricane Season significantly quieter than predicted, it became the first year since 2001 in which no Hurricanes made landfall in the United States. In total, the Season saw a below average 10 Named Storms, 5 Hurricanes and 2 Major Hurricanes.

This Season could be interpreted as somewhat of an anomaly in relation to my observations regarding an association between severe Hurricane and Cyclone events and the manifestation of 3rdeyeart-works. Notably, as the Nuit image went live sometime in late April, and composition for E.V. began just weeks after the start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season on the 20th of June. Although to be clear, work on this outline was sporadic at best, taking almost six months to complete, read Kundry, and perhaps corroborative of a parallel to the quiet Atlantic Hurricane Season. Another factor for our consideration of course, 2006 was an El Niño year, with the previous three El Niño years all resulting in less active Hurricane Seasons. That said, as if to emphasise a connection between fever from the skies and these works, there is an incredibly synchronous relationship between genesis of the Nuit painting and Tornado/Cyclone activity. And as we shall see, release of E.V. (featuring the Atlantic Basin) along with 3rdeyeart v 2.0 in 2008, presaged the second most destructive Atlantic Hurricane Season on record.

-20th of June, I started drawing E.V. around this time, if not a couple days earlier.

-4th of August, A Super Cellular Waterspout/Tornado strikes La Perouse, a suburb of Sydney.

-7th of August, I sent updates to my web-designer and a Tornado with winds of up to 250km/h damages 60 homes after hitting the town of Leschenault, Western Australia.

-10th of September, Hurricane Gordon forms. Category 3 at its peak, Gordon lasted twelve days before going Extra-tropical on the 21st of September.

-12th of September, Hurricane Helene forms. Category 3 at its peak, Helene lasted thirteen days before going Extra-tropical on the 24th of September.

-1st of December, I stretched the E.V. canvas.

-Victoria’s longest running bushfires commenced when State-wide lightning ignited 200 blazes, resulting in the use of street lamps and headlights as day turned an eerie red night during the course of the fires – E.V.

51. There are four gates to one palace; the floor of that palace is of silver and gold; lapis lazuli & jasper are there; and all rare scents; jasmine & rose, and the emblems of death. Let him enter in turn or at once the four gates; let him stand on the floor of the palace. Will he not sink? Amn. Ho! warrior, if thy servant sink? But there are means and means. Be goodly therefore: dress ye all in fine apparel; eat rich foods and drink sweet wines and wines that foam! Also, take your fill and will of love as ye will, when, where and with whom ye will! But always unto me.

52. If this be not aright; if ye confound the space-marks, saying: They are one; or saying, They are many; if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful judgments of Ra Hoor Khuit!

53. This shall regenerate the world, the little world my sister, my heart & my tongue, unto whom I send this kiss. Also, o scribe and prophet, though thou be of the princes, it shall not assuage thee nor absolve thee. But ecstasy be thine and joy of earth: ever To me! To me!

Liber AL ch. I

-14th of December, Sees verification of the negative impact of the Kundry (Nephthys v 1.0) era when the City of Melbourne disappears in a haze of smoke for several days from the fires now burning in Victoria, Tasmania and New South Wales. With visibility down to just 2km in the CBD, air quality was ten times worse than average, and the smell of smoke permeated everything; the EPA advising they recorded their worst results since observations began. Camp Sovereignty, Mr Thorpe? E.V., Mr Iceton?

-25th of December, The crazy weather continues when Melbourne experiences its coldest Christmas Day on record. While some ‘lucky’ Victorians were treated to a white Christmas as snow fell in the Alps!



2007 E.V.

-January, Reminiscent of the rainbow motif in the (under construction) E.V. image, Comet McNaught, the brightest comet in over 40 years, is clearly visible in night skies.

-7th of February, After three long months the fires burning in Victoria’s Great Dividing Range are finally contained.

-27th of February, Parallel to the (initial) completion of E.V. there is a burst of Tornado and Cyclone activity in Australia and the United States; commencing in Australia with Category 5 Tropical Cyclone George. Lasting twelve days before weakening below Cyclone intensity on the 10th of March, George was soon accompanied by Tropical Low Odette and then also Category 3 Tropical Cyclone Jacob.

-1st of March, Sees a Tornado outbreak devastate Southern Alabama and Georgia.

-3rd of March, Tropical Cyclone Jacob forms. Category 3 at its peak, Jacob lasted ten days before being downgraded to a Tropical Low on the 12th of March.

-23rd of March, Tropical Cyclone Kara forms. Category 4 at its peak, Kara lasted six days before weakening to a Low on the 28th of March.

-29th of March, The Australian Bureau of Meteorology issues its first ever Hurricane wind warning for Southern Australia as 110km/h winds rage south of The Great Australian Bight.

-65 Tornadoes tear across six States in the U.S. – Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska and Illinois.

-24th of April, Tornadoes strike the U.S. – Mexico border towns of Piedras Negras, Coahuila and Eagle Pass, Texas.

-4th of May, Saw the majority of Greensburg, Kansas destroyed when a powerful EF5 Tornado struck.

-16th of May, E.V. was photographed (further work would be done before its appearance online).

-Just over two weeks after the official end of the 06/07 Australian Cyclone Season, Tropical Storm Pierre escalates to Category 1. Pierre weakened below Cyclone intensity on the 17th of May.

-17th of May, Rainfall in Southern Australia. Expectations were high for a strong La Niña period to bring steady rainfall, alleviating the strain of what was alleged to be the worst drought the continent had seen in “1000 years”.

-13th of August, Tropical Storm Dean is the first Named Storm of the 2007 Atlantic Hurricane Season, before becoming the first Hurricane of the Season three days later.

-21st of August, After developing into a Category 5 Hurricane, Dean makes landfall on the Yucatan Peninsula resulting in severe damage.

-2nd of September, Having formed on the 31st of August Tropical Storm Felix is upgraded to Hurricane status. Category 5 at its peak, Felix dissipated on the 7th of September.

-30th of November, Official end of the 2007 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Aside from Hurricanes Dean and Felix there were only four other Hurricanes, each Category 1. With 15 Named Storms, 6 Hurricanes and 2 Major Hurricanes, from a certain angle the Season ranks above the long-term averages of 11 Named Storms, 6 Hurricanes and 2.5 Major Hurricanes. Yet the Accumulated Cyclone Energy total was just 84% of the 1950-2000 median, and this with a La Niña occurrence that encouraged forecasters to predict higher than normal activity. In conclusion, the ’07 Season was one of the least active since 1995, with only one Hurricane, Humberto, making landfall in the United States. Might there be a link between a relative low in activity and the fact that there were no artworks under construction/added to 3rdeyeart.com conjunct with the Season?



2008 E.V.

-1st of January, Tropical Cyclone Helen forms. Category 2 at its peak, Helen lasted five days before being downgraded to a Tropical Low on the 5th of January.

-7th–8th of January, Sees the United States’ second largest January Tornado outbreak on record.

-22nd of March, 3rdeyeart.com version 2.0 goes live, exhibiting the newly completed E.V. artwork. Planning for the piece emerged around the 20th of June ’06, a time when recession was far from the minds of the mainstream. The image accurately depicts the ‘Sub-prime Mortgage Crisis’, catalyst for what has come to be labelled the GFC, two years before the event.

-23rd of March, Tropical Cyclone Pancho forms. Category 4 at its peak, Pancho lasted seven days before being downgraded to a Low on the 29th of March.

-2nd of May, Tropical Cyclone Nargis makes landfall in Burma. The Category 4 Cyclone caused $1 billion worth of damage and was the worst natural disaster the country has seen. Tragically, early reports stated that almost 78,000 people lost their lives while nearly 56,000 remained missing.

-22nd–25th May, Severe Storms and Tornadoes strike Central U.S., contributing to the deadliest January-May period since 1998 and the eighth-deadliest since 1953.

-1st of July, Findings are published for the 14-month follow-up to a scientific study conducted at John Hopkins University to investigate potential positive effects of psilocybin. The primary psychoactive chemical found in magick mushrooms, it’s alleged psilocybin proffers positive life-changing realisations and expansions of consciousness. 60% of participants in the experiment rated the experience as profoundly meaningful and spiritually significant. Claiming it enhanced their well-being and facilitated a genuine mystical experience. None of the volunteers reported a decreased sense of well-being.

In an article from the Baltimore City Paper Bill Richards – Psychiatrist, Comparative Religion Scholar and Co-Facilitator of the Psilocybin Experiments at John Hopkins, discusses one of the stages of the psychedelic experience:

“And then…we enter the archetypal realm. Visions of Christ, or Buddha, or Greek gods…imagery from the Book of Revelation, that sort of thing. What’s fascinating is that they often experience things far outside of their life histories, Christians seeing the Buddha, or someone seeing Egyptian or Hindu or other unfamiliar iconography. Certainly not the stuff they learned in Sunday school. It’s fascinating – almost as if there’s a universal cache of knowledge they’re tapping into.”

Lundahl, one of the participants in the Experiment recounts her Journey:

“And I saw this jester. And he was coming down the street. I was in the crowd, I was right there. And one side of him was totally black, and the other side was totally colourful, and here he is, just laughing.” She closes her eyes, remembering. “And I’m getting the image of the dark side of life, and the light side, and here is this jester…just laughing! Laughing at the human condition, that we humans think we have any clue as to what is really going on. And I started chuckling, and then I started laughing, and I’m thinking – we’re so clueless! I was laughing with God, and with the jester, and with everything, and I said to myself, `We humans, we’re just so silly! We think we know. We don’t know. What is this experience on this earth? This is amazing.’ When you really start to think about it–how could this be?”

“And then, immediately, I was in a parade. But this time it was Jesus. Coming down the street. And just wiped…totally wiped…dragging the cross. Beaten up badly. And the crowd had gathered.” She pauses. “Now I don’t have a religious background. I don’t know the Bible stories. I don’t know any of this stuff. And yet…I was right in the crowd, right at the moment when he turns and says, `Forgive them, Lord, for they know not what they do.’”

“And it had gone from the jester…the cluelessness of us…to the forgiveness, and the ignorance of what we do to each other. And I felt it. And I got it on different levels. What I do to people, what people have done to me, what communities do, and what nations do. The cluelessness, the ignorance. We just know not what we do.”

Richards continues:

“After the archetypal realm comes the mystical state. There’s a dimension of awesomeness, of profound humility, of the self being stripped bare. In the psychology of religion, mystical experience is well-described–unity, transcendence of time and space, noetic knowledge, sacredness, ineffability….It’s the sacred dimension of revelation, but it can be what Kierkegaard called `fear and trembling’– incredibly profound and powerful terrain to travel.”

“People who have never studied the psychology of religion hear `mystical,’ and it sounds like `misty’… something vague, not very precise or clear. We know what we’re talking about, but the man on the street doesn’t. So who would want a mystical experience? I’d rather get drunk!”

Dark Side – Light Side

 

The Knower of Truth should go about the world outwardly stupid like a child, a madman or a devil. Mahavakyaratnamala

Succeeding an obsession with drawing and painting clowns in magickal year 11 (1998), my introductory tattoo and the first of three jesters/clowns/harlequins was inked on my right shoulder in 1999. Well before learning the occult significance of the ‘fool’, the release of Finding Nemo, or studying Liber AL The fool readeth this Book of the Law, and its comment; & he understandeth it not. Liber AL ch. III, v. 63. I read the above article on the 10th of October 2009, at which time the epically solid black fractal had been coloured five years earlier, 8th of July 2004. Evidently, an unintentional yet well established ‘dark side, light side’ arrangement was in play; the skull and Om both tattooed pre-fractal.

In light of our discussion regarding the validity of entheogens in facilitating the evolution of consciousness and genuine mystical experiences, Lundahl’s Vision, juxtaposed with Crowley’s observations on the ‘Star Sponge’ form of Deep Space, presents another uniquely objective affirmation of this work and the Visionary Experience. Its import augmented due to appearance via scientific study. While the photos may lack absolute precision in their alignment to Lundahl’s Journey, when certain other details on this website are considered the resonation is distinct, indicative of merit to a correlation.

-7th of July, In concert with work on Hocus Pocus, and just months after the launch of 3rdeyeart.com v 2.0 and the E.V. image, Tropical Storm Bertha is upgraded to Hurricane status. Bertha was the first Hurricane of the 2008 Atlantic Hurricane Season, which was to become the second most destructive Hurricane Seasons on record. In total, the 2008 Atlantic Hurricane Season saw 16 Named Storms, 8 Hurricanes and 5 Major Hurricanes. Well above the average of 11 Named Storms, 6 Hurricanes and 2.5 Major Hurricanes. Another calamitous Season aligned with 3rdeyeart milestones.

-11th of July, Amid fears of ‘peak oil’ and reports claiming the resource’s scarcity, the world sees an all-time record for the price of the commodity as it reaches $147.27 (U.S.) per barrel. E.V...

-20th of July, Tropical Storms Bertha, Cristobal and Dolly are all reported. The first time three active storms have raged so early in the Season, which commenced on the 1st of June.

-21st of July, Tropical Storm Dolly brings heavy rainfall to Cancun and mudslides in Guatemala.

-23rd of July, Dolly strengthens to become the second Hurricane of the Season, making landfall in Texas and causing roughly $1.05 billion worth of damage in the U.S.

-16th of August, The first of four Storms to strike the island in a row, Tropical Storm Fay hits Haiti. Fay was followed by Hurricanes Gustav, Hanna and then finally Ike on the 8th of September.

-25th of August, Hurricane Gustav forms. Category 4 at its peak, Gustav lasted nine days before weakening to a Tropical Storm on the 2nd of September.

-28th of August, Hurricane Hannah forms. Category 1 at its peak, Hannah lasted six days before weakening to a Tropical Storm on the 2nd of September.

-1st of September, Hurricane Ike forms. Ike would go on to devastate the Turks and Caicos Islands, Haiti, Cuba, the U.S. and even affect Canada. Category 4 at its peak, Ike weakened to a Tropical Storm on the 13th of September. Leaving a damage bill of approximately $24.9 billion, Ike was the third costliest Hurricane to affect the U.S.

-6th of September, Fannie Mae, or the Federal National Mortgage Association, and Freddie Mac, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation are placed into conservatorship. These two companies were set up in 1938 toward the end of The Great Depression and were responsible for about $5 trillion, or roughly half of the U.S.A.’s mortgage debt.

-10th of September, Just six months after E.V. goes live the first proton beam is successfully steered around the newly completed LHC. Retrospectively of interest as the E.V. canvas features the initial depiction of the omnidirectional star and atom motif also used in the Communion piece – the unfragmentary non-atomic fact of my universality. i.e. a Higgs boson.

-15th of September, With over 150 years in business and 25,000 employees, Lehman Brothers file the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history.

-24th of November, Citigroup scores a $306 billion bailout from the American people (government). Established nearly 200 years ago, Citibank was the largest bank in the world in 2007. However, ‘08 saw their stocks fall roughly 80%.

-15th of December, Tropical Cyclone Billy forms. Category 4 at its peak, Billy lasted fourteen days before weakening below Cyclone intensity on the 28th of December.



2009 E.V.

-2nd of January, I learned the elements of Going Forth By Day when Nephthys v 1.0 and I watched a History Channel documentary on E.A. Wallis Budge and The Egyptian Book of the Dead.

-7th of February, Sees direful judgments as the Kundry days take their toll with the most devastating fires in Australia’s recorded history, the Black Saturday Bushfires.

51. There are four gates to one palace; the floor of that palace is of silver and gold; lapis lazuli & jasper are there; and all rare scents; jasmine & rose, and the emblems of death. Let him enter in turn or at once the four gates; let him stand on the floor of the palace. Will he not sink? Amn. Ho! warrior, if thy servant sink? But there are means and means. Be goodly therefore: dress ye all in fine apparel; eat rich foods and drink sweet wines and wines that foam! Also, take your fill and will of love as ye will, when, where and with whom ye will! But always unto me.

52. If this be not aright; if ye confound the space-marks, saying: They are one; or saying, They are many; if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful judgments of Ra Hoor Khuit!

53. This shall regenerate the world, the little world my sister, my heart & my tongue, unto whom I send this kiss. Also, o scribe and prophet, though thou be of the princes, it shall not assuage thee nor absolve thee. But ecstasy be thine and joy of earth: ever To me! To me!

Liber AL ch. I

-23rd of February, I broke up with Nephthys v 1.0 (Kundry).

-9th–29th of March, Saw minor work undertaken on Hocus Pocus.

-15th of March, Tropical Cyclone Ilsa forms. Category 4 at its peak, Ilsa lasted nine days before weakening on the 23rd of March.

-1st of June–30th of November, Results in a below average 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season. With an Accumulated Cyclone Energy Total of just 60% of the median, it was only the second Season since 1995 with below normal activity (the other being 1997). In total, the ’09 Season saw 9 Named Storms, 3 Hurricanes and 2 Major Hurricanes. Looking at the stats since work here at 3rdeyeart commenced back in 2004, we have an average of 17.5 Named Storms, 9 Hurricanes and 4 Major Hurricanes per year (2004-2012, 2009 excluded). 2009 saw only two Australian Region Cyclones of note, with Tropical Cyclone Hamish resulting in precautionary evacuations at the Whitsunday group of Islands, and Tropical Cyclone Laurence causing considerable damage to properties North-east of Port Hedland. The majority of Storms struggled to maintain Cyclone intensity upon landfall.

Both of these Seasons parallel affairs at 3rdeyeart. There were no new artworks added to the site in 2009. Following minor efforts in March no artwork was in process either. Instead, the first six months of the year were spent focused on completing nine months daily practice in meditation, whilst evaluating the losses incurred and lessons learned as a result of the Kundry days. Where to from here? Are the pieces worth picking up? Is that even possible? The quietest year at 3rdeyeart yet sees also the quietest Atlantic Hurricane Season since 1997.

There is, however, another factor that should be considered regarding the below average statistics for the 2009 Hurricane and Cyclone Seasons – El Niño developed in the month of June. Occurring at three to seven-year intervals, El Niño is known to reduce Hurricane and Cyclone activity while La Niña years typically see an increase. As discussed, the last El Niño episode was in 2006 and saw a marked reduction in Tropical Storms. At this point, one might assert it to be mere coincidence that ’06 and ’09 saw both a lull in production at 3rdeyeart in conjunction with below average Cyclone and Hurricane Seasons. However, combined analysis of the 2004 – 2012 Seasons substantiates trends concurrent to 3rdeyeart, indicating ‘coincidence’ may be an inadequate reduction of the data. Especially when the relationship between this work and various other meteorological phenomena, such as drought and rainfall, is also taken into account. The interpretation of our story here presented is in alignment with records at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, along with Melbourne Water, and permits a vitally far-reaching step forward, whereby we’re granted the potential for healing and regeneration.

This shall regenerate the world, the little world my sister, my heart & my tongue, unto whom I send this kiss…

2010 E.V.

-January, My first overseas trip. Destination – South America, to participate in Journeys with the Amazonian brew ayahuasca.

-February, I met Isis v 2.0.

-20th of April, An explosion on the Deepwater Horizon Offshore Drilling Rig results in the largest marine oil spill in history. With a massive plume of smoke soon billowing from the rig in the Gulf of Mexico, yet another connection to the E.V. piece comes to mind.

-25th of June, Hurricane Alex, the first Hurricane of the 2010 Season forms. With an ACE of 190% of the 1950-2000 median, 19 Named Storms, 12 Hurricanes and 5 Major Hurricanes, the 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season became the tenth most active Season since 1950. Considered in fact ‘hyperactive’, it is the only Season of its type with no U.S. landfalls. Given our track record here at 3rdeyeart is it really too outlandish to suggest a relationship between this anomaly and a year spent touching up existing 3rdeyeart canvases?

-17th of July, Started touch up work on The Hermit, E.V., and Hocus Pocus pieces.

-5th of September, My home State of Victoria receives a week’s worth of rain in one day! Heavy rainfall saw water storages rise to 42.5% and the State Government ease water restrictions to Stage 2. At the same time in ’09 storage levels were at 28.8%. See also Melbourne Water’s Weekly Water Report.

51. There are four gates to one palace; the floor of that palace is of silver and gold; lapis lazuli & jasper are there; and all rare scents; jasmine & rose, and the emblems of death.

-7th of December, Julian Assange is issued with a European arrest warrant by Swedish police for questioning in relation to allegations of sexual assault. The parallels between the themes inherent in Hocus Pocus and the Assange saga are difficult to ignore. Especially when effects of previous 3rdeyeart-works are coupled with a coinciding of the release of both Hocus Pocus and these Cables.

-18th–19th of December, Perhaps due to a delay in proceedings with Isis v 2.0, Victoria sees snow in the summer, yet again.



2011 E.V.

Presenting a definite affinity with Communion, the comet was green (the same colour as the meteor in the painting) and the gold text on the canvas is the Greek word for Love, Agape. The comet even went on to surprise scientists by surviving a journey through the Sun’s corona on the 16th of December.

-30th of November, The conclusion of the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season sees yet another busy year alongside the production of 3rdeyeart-work. Easily exceeding the average of 11 Named Storms, 6 Hurricanes and 2.5 Major Hurricanes, with 19 Named Storms, 7 Hurricanes and 4 Major Hurricanes, 2011 was the 14th most active Season since 1966.

-April, Following December’s tantalizing glimpses the power had been turned up on the LHC and between the months of April and June more data was gathered than in the whole of 2011. The power-up ran exactly concurrent to my working around the clock on Communion, 3rdeyeart.com v 3.0 and a balancing of the scales.

-May, Simultaneous to the production of Communion, mid-May sees widespread speculation of what was once considered the “unthinkable”, Grexit, or Greece leaving the Eurozone. Of potential bearing to our work in light of one of the intentions of Communion being a counterbalance to the dominance of the aggressive and territorial influence of the reptilian mind in our consciousness today. Conspicuously, the image features the Greek word for Love, Agape.

-18th of June, Hurricane Chris forms. Category 1 at its peak, Chris lasted five days before being downgraded to a Tropical Storm on the 22nd of June.

-4th of July, Announcement of the discovery of a Higgs-like boson, aka the ‘God Particle’ as prophesied in Liber AL:

So she answered him, bending down, a lambent flame of blue, all-touching, all penetrant, her lovely hands upon the black earth, & her lithe body arched for love, and her soft feet not hurting the little flowers: Thou knowest! And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the unfragmentary non-atomic fact of my universality. Liber AL ch. I, v. 26

and again from the second chapter of Liber AL:

1. Nu! the hiding of Hadit.

2. Come! all ye, and learn the secret that hath not yet been revealed. I, Hadit, am the complement of Nu, my bride. I am not extended, and Khabs is the name of my House.

-30th of August, Hurricane Leslie forms. Category 1 at its peak, Leslie fluctuated between Tropical Storm and Hurricane status for thirteen days before finally dropping below Hurricane intensity on the 11th of September.

-3rd of September, Hurricane Michael forms. Category 3 at its peak, Michael lasted nine days before weakening to a Tropical Storm on the 11th of September. Michael was just the fifth Major Hurricane of the satellite era to develop from a Non-Tropical weather system.

-8th of September, Two Tornadoes strike New York City.

-10th of September, Hurricane Nadine forms. Category 1 at its peak, Nadine lasted a remarkable twenty-five days. Attaining Hurricane status twice (a record 13 days apart) before dissipating on the 4th of October.

-22nd of October, Following a lull in inspiration and a re-run of The Last Temptation of Christ ‘Super-Frankenstorm’ Hurricane Sandy forms as I was returning to the Communion, 3rdeyeart.com v 3.0 grindstone. A common fixture throughout the year, the beard was back and I’d missed three weekly dinners with my family by the time Sandy hit New York City. At a massive 1,000 miles in diameter, Sandy was officially the largest Hurricane to form in the Atlantic Basin. Making landfall in Florida on the 26th of October and New York City on the 29th, Sandy was a further rarity due to the fact that only 68 Hurricanes have struck the North-eastern United States since record keeping began in 1851. With estimates of approximately $50 billion worth of damage, Sandy is the second costliest Hurricane in U.S. history.

-30th of November, Despite estimates of a “near normal” Season from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Centre (CPC), due to the expectation of an El Niño event to suppress Hurricane activity, conclusion of the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season sees a highly active 19 Named Storms, 10 Hurricanes and 2 Major Hurricanes. Well above the average of 12 Named Storms, and 6 Hurricanes, although just less than the average of 2.5 Major Hurricanes. With an ACE of 132.6, the 2012 Season finished up the 11th highest in the past 30 years. “Predictions of El Niño, La Niña, and their impacts, remain an ongoing scientific challenge facing climate modelers, forecasters, and scientists.”

-4th of December, Parallel to solitary nights, a week of hard work with negligible quantities of sleep and copious amounts of caffeine, Super Typhoon Bopha hits the Southern Philippines Island of Mindanao with sustained winds of over 240 km/h. The Typhoon ravaged the island killing 902 and leaving around 212, 000 homeless. A Super Typhoon (equivalent to a Category 5 Hurricane) is a reportedly rare occurrence for December, the last one being in 2004 – the year of The Hermit.

-4th of January, The Australian Bureau of Meteorology releases a Drought Statement outlining rainfall deficiencies across Australia for the past five months – August to December. I was both shocked and devastated to discover this news a week later on the 10th of January. Quickly ascertaining the deficiencies began in conjunction with Nephthys v 2.0 and I seeing each other. Last I’d heard the drought was over, and I’d worked very hard to do what I could to see that happen.

51. There are four gates to one palace; the floor of that palace is of silver and gold; lapis lazuli & jasper are there; and all rare scents; jasmine & rose, and the emblems of death. Let him enter in turn or at once the four gates; let him stand on the floor of the palace. Will he not sink? Amn. Ho! warrior, if thy servant sink? But there are means and means. Be goodly therefore: dress ye all in fine apparel; eat rich foods and drink sweet wines and wines that foam! Also, take your fill and will of love as ye will, when, where and with whom ye will! But always unto me.

52. If this be not aright; if ye confound the space-marks, saying: They are one; or saying, They are many; if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful judgments of Ra Hoor Khuit!

53. This shall regenerate the world, the little world my sister, my heart & my tongue, unto whom I send this kiss. Also, o scribe and prophet, though thou be of the princes, it shall not assuage thee nor absolve thee. But ecstasy be thine and joy of earth: ever To me! To me!

-18th of January, Sydney experiences its hottest day on record with a whopping 45.8 degrees Celsius.

-Due to the extreme weather, intense bushfires burning across NSW and Victoria, along with the Bureau of Meteorology’s Drought Statement, two hearts were broken when I called Georgie – Nephthys v 2.0 and told her “I don’t think we can be together anymore.” Given the relationship between this work and the weather, some of you may be wondering what took me so long? Well, depending on who you listen to bushfires are actually a healthy part of Australia’s ecosystem and, therefore, it couldn’t be ruled out that the fires in Tasmania, and then also Victoria and NSW were a part of this process. However, while bushfires may be a natural part of goings on Down Under, two record-breaking heat waves are not.

When I first read the aforementioned Drought Statement Georgie had just arrived on the Gold Coast for a three-week long holiday. I advised her of the situation and the potential implications days after learning this, and we agreed if things got any worse I’d let her know. A little too close to home, I heard of an uncontained fire burning on Melbourne St (my hometown) in Cessnock (my birthplace) on the afternoon of the 18th. An hour and a half later the fire had worsened from a yellow – Watch and Act level, to a red – Emergency Warning. Knowing the potential for reprieve I called Georgie and the fire was soon contained… I should clarify that I have dearly loved family and friends in both Tasmania and Cessnock, so the fact this particular fire was burning in my birthplace was not the primary motivator. What I can say is the synchronicity involving Melbourne St in Cessnock undoubtedly provoked awareness of a potential link between my own scenario and that of the bushfires. As loopy as the above course of events are, when one is monitoring a situation for a potential connection which then unfolds in such a manner, one is left with little choice.

-19th of January, Cooler temperatures and reduced winds see the bushfire crisis in NSW ease, resulting in all alerts reduced to the blue – Advice level on Saturday; while firefighters in Victoria also take advantage of favourable conditions.

-14th of March, CMS and Atlas teams at the Moriond Conference in Italy reveal further data analysis indicates:

“The preliminary results with the full 2012 data set are magnificent and to me it is clear that we are dealing with a Higgs boson though we still have a long way to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is,” confirmed CMS spokesperson Joe Incandela.

“The beautiful new results represent a huge effort by many dedicated people. They point to the new particle having the spin-parity of a Higgs boson as in the Standard Model. We are now well started on the measurement programme in the Higgs sector,” advised ATLAS spokesperson Dave Charlton.
