Life imitates conspiracy theory as art....

Note that I am a triangle....
Wow.  WDBJ 7 is reporting that schools in Narrows, Virginia, didn't open after Christmas Break on Wednesday due to an online article entitled The Next School Massacre Target?  Evidence that a little common sense won out over blind fear, perhaps, is that schools reopened on Thursday.  Still, the article was seen as a possible threat, which had the authorities jumpy enough to close schools for one day, at least.

And the article?  Apparently it was originally posted here, but the site seems to be offline now.  Maybe overloaded after being linked to by Drudge.

Google's webcache, however, makes it possible to read the original article. 

The Next School Massacre Target?  The theory of the article is that the mass shootings in Aurora and Newtown are linked and that clues to these events can be found in the Batman films and were timed around symbolic astronomical configurations.

For example: 

Mainstream media has not touched the fact “SANDY HOOK” is referenced on a map in the latest Batman movie. Commissioner Gordon, briefly drags his hand across the “SANDY HOOK” part of the map, at 1 hour and 58 minutes into the film.  What are the chances of this being a coincidence? Or is this a subtle blue print being followed by sick individuals? What other clues can be gleaned from the map?

The next strike zone on the map is “NARROWS” and just on a hunch I entered “NARROWS SCHOOLS” into GOOGLE Search and this is what I discovered.  Narrows Elementary Middle School and Narrows High School, located in Narrows, Virginia. This made me cringe when I saw a match and I hope there is no relationship to the map and another school massacre. I hope the professionals in law enforcement read this post and take the appropriate measures to protect the innocent, young and old (just as a precaution). 

Easy to see why authorities got a little jumpy; to them all this "synchromystic" stuff must sound like complete lunacy and the last line could be read as what they said it was, a disingenuous implied threat..... 

The article is also another in a long line of articles in the "Illuminati infiltrates pop culture" memeThe author next asks, in boldface and italics and large font: 

I have been asking myself for months WHY on earth do the Illuminati always present (through occult masking) all their upcoming plans into medias, films, or music? What is the reason of their support to those hard-rock, pop musicians?” 

This conveniently gives us another example of the meme at work, recently discussed in Leave a good-looking corpse.  Given that we've recently been following the conspiracy theories around Aurora (here / here), Clackamas (here) and Newtown (here / here), it's only natural that we include it here, with a healthy dose of wtf?-like head-shaking at how the conspiracy theories are starting to determine the way things unfold not only onscreen or in the collective hallucination, but in the 3D + time space we call "reality".

I also thought it was pretty weird, given how I jumped on the figure 20 in my Newtown posts, that when I went back in search of a link for my first Aurora post I was startled to see that I'd called it 20 rosy fingers.  Maybe there was something to that number 20 after all!  Was this some kind of pre-cognitive sensitivity to some numerical symbolism....?

But of coure, you should immediately see the fallacy of this thinking, seeing where you'd foretold the future by repeating something you forgotten you'd said in the past....

Then again, in this year of the Mayan Apocalypse, around which there seems to have been a heightened mass apprehension of any significant event, it's innarestin' to read that:  The number 20 has little mystical significance, but it is historically interesting because the Mayan number system used base 20. When counting time the Maya replaced 20 × 20 = 400 by 20 × 18 = 360 to approximate the number of days in the year. (

Fu*kin Mayans! 

PS  The post title was inspired by a book I'd read about then forgotten, until this came up.  I just bought the book and from a LoSian perspective, seems rather intristin'....we'll see when it's delivered.  You can read some about the book on Amazon....


  1. Base 20! A common characteristic of a prefootpanted culture, that is to say, shoe-less; sandals are more of a proto-glove than a proper pantalone, at least according to experts in the field. The ease of using the toes during daily counting routines, one supposes.

    1. Did you know that in French, there's no word for 80? Well, strictly speaking that's not true cuz in Belgium they say "octante". But in France they say "quatre-vingt" or "four-twenty." Weird, eh? I've been told that's due to the Gallo-Celt base twenty. The explanation I got is that the Gauls would count to ten on their fingers in one direction than up to twenty going the other way! But it seems like to that the toes would have something do do with least in non-/pre-footpanted cultures....

      Also, I apologize profusely for my email silence....holidays and whatnot. Soon!

  2. Unrelated, but still numerological, I ran across the French freelance occupation of "quatrorzieme" the other day -- the service of becoming the 14th guest at dinner parties and such.

    I didn't know that about the Celtic base 20, interesting. Technically speaking tho, English is much the same way, but decimally (?), tho some wrangle has obviously been lost -- Twen-tey (two tens), thir-tey (three-tens), etc. Fascinating really, the structures underneath the quotidian blurt.

    1. I never copped that about two tens. Makes sense though. Apparently a "tey" was an Old English meausure of rope, perahps equivalent to a fathom. This last meausure interesting too, as in "unfahomable." "Can't fathom it", etc.

      Can you pop me a link on the quatorzieme? Lots of table lore here. When you clink glasses, you should never cross arms with other clinkers....and look your ckinking partner in the eye. Comes in handy round this time....

  3. Also I feel compelled to mention: you may be missing a lot of fun -- conspiracy-wise -- by sidestepping all the Monarch Programming/Imperial Conditioning angles . . .

    1. That stuff kind of freaks me out! :) Truly wild stuff out there, Trance-Formation of America for example. I should delve into it more. Certainly some basis for it.

    2. !! "MKUltra involved the use of many methodologies to manipulate people's individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture."

      But Wiki doesn't mention it again in the article. Googling "sexual abuse in MKUltra" brings up oodles of sites. Problem is that most of these are in the Cathy O'Brien vein,, etc.

      You've prolly seen these?

      The Search for the Manchurian Candidate:

      Abuse of Power: scans of the entire archive of declassified material:

      April 13, 1953: CIA OKs MK-ULTRA Mind-Control Tests:

      My grand-dad's brother was a chemist and participated in the interrogation of Nazi scientists after the war. Don't think he was fondling any dat Aryan cock, though. Hope not!

      Remember this one?

      I quote myself quoting: 'Again to quote the AP: "Segol claims the swastika shape of Wesley Acres in Decatur pays homage to the German scientists who came to nearby Huntsville after World War II and designed the rockets that put Americans on the moon."'

      War ends in '45. Mengele dealies begin in '53. OSI (est. '48) picking up where the SS had left off?

  4. I can't really find a good link for Quatorzieme offhand, just definitions -- I guess it's not particularly important to the modern Gaul. I read about it in the book linked below, which has all kinds of fascinating speculation on the development of number systems among other things, and as you know I love me some Neanderthals . . .

    1. That book looks fascinating. I'm gonna add it to my "to buy" list. Also that "quatorzième" thing, I found this here, which is cool for us because it ends up back at counting fingers and toes.

      One of the most commonly known and observed superstitions concerning the number thirteen, has to do with dining. It is said to be incredibly unlucky to be invited to dinner and have thirteen people at table.

      The belief is that the first person to rise from table and/or the last person to sit down at the table are destined to die within the calendar year. The only way to avoid this is for everyone to be seated and to rise from the table at the same time. Not an easy feat, however, there is some hope for everyone's survival if two or more of the people at dinner are seated at another/separate table.

      - This superstition is said to originate with the Last Supper at which Judas Iscariot was the last person to take a seat at table.
      - The superstition is also said to have originated in the East with the Hindus, who believed, for their own reasons, that it is always unlucky for thirteen people to gather in one place at one time, say - at dinner.
      - Interestingly enough, precisely the same superstition has been attributed to the ancient Vikings. There is an old Norse legend that seems tailor made for continuing this trend;
      As the story goes, twelve gods were invited to a banquet at Valhalla. Loki, the Evil One, (god of mischief) had been left off the guest list but crashed the party, bringing the total number of attendees to thirteen. True to character, Loki incited Hod (the blind god of darkness and winter) into attacking Balder the Good (fairest of the gods). Hod took a spear of mistletoe offered by Loki and obediently hurled it at Balder, killing him instantly. All Valhalla grieved.

      This tale apparently explains why the Norse themselves adhere to the belief that thirteen people at a dinner party is just plain bad luck.

      One of the more perplexing suggestions of origin is that the fears surrounding the number thirteen are as ancient as the act of counting. This speculative explanation suggests, primitive man had only his ten fingers and two feet to represent units, so he could count no higher than twelve. What lay beyond that -thirteen- was an unfathomable mystery to our prehistoric antecedents, hence an object of fear, confusion and superstition. Which has the feel of possible truth, but my first thought was, those self-same humans didn't wear shoes, so why didn't they use their toes to count with as well?

    2. BTW, if you ever get back to France, this area is loaded with pre-historic sites. We could spend a weekend in the mountains and see several places with cave paintings, artifacts, etc.

      Also, related to numbers and counting, I'd like to read a lengthy history of the evolution of weights and measures. Reading Hoffman's SS&PW left an indelible mark on me re: metric versus non-metric measures. Metric is easy and necessary but it's also charmless. Love the nature-based measures, though calculating them is a bit more of a pain! I was actually in contact with the BIPM about their logo for a post once, incredible power lying in that field....
