"Assuming that we are in a binary star system, and that Newton’s laws work just as well outside the solar system as inside it, then the Sun’s dual would most likely need to be a dark companion, or a 'Dark Star'." - Walter Cruttenden
First off I want say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on my last two posts. I’ve responded to each one of you in the comments section of Paw Prints & Pentagrams Pt2 and I’m very grateful for the warm reception. The feedback helped spark some new ideas which I hope to explore in the future so once again…cheers!
In this next part of the investigation I’m going to stick with the movie synchronicities for a while longer before moving onto some of the more grounded research of archaeo-astronomer Walter Cruttenden. The work of Cruttenden was pivotal when it came to narrowing down the identity of the Dark Star, or ‘Black Sun’ as I’d come to know it, but I needed to find confirmation for his theories within the movie synchronicities themselves. If I couldn’t verify the research of Walter Cruttenden via the symbols of the Paw Prints, the Pair of Pentagrams, and the letters ‘PP’, then I would continue my search until I found something that did ‘click’.
I accepted that I might never find the answers that I was looking for but I knew one thing for sure: I wasn’t going to force a jigsaw piece which didn’t fit the puzzle. If I had to twist things to make them work within the context of the investigation then I knew I was going down a dead end, and believe me I’ve gone down many of those while trying to figure some of this stuff out. I knew the answers I was looking for would come effortlessly, just like the movie synchronicities looked at in my previous posts.
Sometimes I did actively hunt for further clues by reading a book I was drawn to, or searching the internet for relevant movie trivia or video interviews, but the biggest moments of inspiration seemed to come when I was in a passive, receptive frame of mind, usually in the early hours of the morning when my family were fast asleep. It was during these peaceful moments that the penny would drop and I’d frantically search my computer desk for a pen to scribble down my latest insights.
Now if you’ve already watched the free video interview with Walter Cruttenden then you’ll already know which star he thinks is the likeliest candidate for the ‘Black Sun’, and at this moment in time I’d have to agree with him. If you haven’t watched it, then not to worry, as I’m going to arrive at the same conclusions as he did by using a slightly less scientific method – Synchronicity.
I was beginning to form a web of interrelated coincidences which I could then use to navigate my way around the various concepts and themes which had started to appear in my research. By joining the dots between the different synchronicities the picture was gradually beginning to emerge. There were still many gaps in it, but the basic shapes were there. So to find the next 'dot' in this tangled web where better to look than Spiderman himself. I still wondered what role the Spider had to play in the scheme of things, so I watched the movie again to see if anything new would reveal itself.
When Peter Parker starts out on his new quest to master his 'inner-spider' we find him locked in a cage like a wild animal...
...and the two contestants are surrounded by bones:
A connection to the Paw Prints, a cage, and bones naturally brought the Dog to mind. I wasn't surprised when I found this crystal clear reference between Spiderman and the Dog:
Actor Tobey Maguire, who played the role of Peter Parker, had other canine connections through his role as the lead Dog in the movie 'Cats & Dogs'. The links between the Spider, the Dog, and the Paw Prints were beginning to strengthen. Notice anything familiar in the title?
Below I've highlighted three letters behind Peter Parkers back:
I'd been so interested with the Paw Prints and the Pair of Pentagrams in front of Spidey, that I'd overlooked the letters 'GOD' or 'DOG' to the left of him. Tobey Maguire starred in the movie Cats & Dogs and above we see him running beside the word 'CATS' and 'DOG'.
I wondered if any other actors had been a Spider in a movie (like Tobey Maguire in Spiderman) with connections to the Dog or the Paw Print. Not many actors sprung to mind, until I pondered the significance of the letters 'GO':
I knew that the initials PP of 'Peter Parker' were somehow important, so I wondered if the 'GO' in this scene might stand for something. The answer I was looking for came in the form of an actor with the initials G.O. - Gary Oldman.
Oldman played the role of the character 'Spider Smith' in the movie 'Lost in Space'. Like Peter Parker he’s bitten by a Spider, but instead of gaining superhuman powers he evolves into a giant black arachnid:
'Spider Smith' was the one responsible for the Robinson family becoming 'Lost in Space'. Due to his meddling, the family spaceship finds itself hurtling towards the centre of the Sun:
Luckily for the Robinsons they manage to teleport to safety. They pass through the centre of the Sun unscathed, and when they exit the ‘Stargate’ I noticed a symbol which I was beginning to become very familiar with: the Black Sun:
It only appears on the screen for a fraction of a second but it lingered long enough for me notice the synchronicity. It happens to share an uncanny resemblance with the Black Sun found in the Heroes TV show logo:
Later on in the movie the Robinsons and Spider Smith enter a derelict spaceship and encounter a nest of Spiders:
While the Robinsons escape the deadly swarm, we see the arachnids pierce a hole in a metal doorway. The symbol they create on the bulk head looks very similar to the Black Sun we just looked at above, suggesting that the Spider and the 'Dark Star' were closely connected with one another:
So Gary Oldman had played the role of a Spider-man who had travelled through the centre of our own Sun (the White Sun) and emerged unscathed through the portal of the Black Sun. A quick visit to imdb.com revealed that Gary Oldman also had connections to another 'Sun of God' (or ‘Sun of Dog’) and the letters 'PP'. He played the role of (PP) 'Pontius Pilate' in the TV show called 'Jesus':
All I needed now were the Paw Prints and the Pair of Pentagrams to complete the synchronicity checklist with actor Gary Oldman. The next discovery was a pivotal one. I recalled that Oldman had played a character in a movie who was actually named after a Star/Sun, and it wasn’t just any old star. It was a Dog-Star. It was a name I'd heard Walter Cruttenden mention many times in his video interview and book 'The Lost Star of Myth and Time'.
The name of the star (as many of you may have already guessed) was Sirius:
Gary Oldman played the role of 'Sirius Black' in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and the sequels. Walter Cruttenden believed that the star Sirius was the likeliest candidate for our Suns binary partner - a companion which he believed was responsible for the ‘Precession of the Equinox’ - and I felt like I'd just been given a big break in the story. Here we see Sirius/Oldman in front of two Stars/Suns which I’ve highlighted with arrows:
Instead of a 'Pair of Pentagrams' I found Sirius Black/Spider Smith connected with two 'Star of Davids'. I interpreted this as simply another way of symbolizing a Pair of Stars/Suns. Considering the ‘Twin Suns’ were on the same image as a character called 'Sirius', Walter Cruttendens prime suspect for the 'Dark Star', I took it as verification that I was being lead down the right path. Afterall, it was the Paw Prints of the Dog/Wolf which had lead me to this point in the investigation so Sirius the Dog-Star seemed like a perfect match. Also Sirius BLACK seemed like a perfect name for a BLACK star, and in the role of Spider Smith I’d already seen Oldman transform into a giant BLACK arachnid.
So I wondered what else G. Oldman could teach me. If you’re a follower of The Blob then you’ll know why the ‘Goldman’ is syncnificant. IIf your not sure what I’m on about then I recommend reading some of Jake Kotze’s earlier posts on the subject. I also want to thank ViølatoR for pointing out something so obvious that I’d completely overlooked it – the letters ‘GOLD’ behind (PP) Peter Parker’:
There may have been a connection with the color GOLD, but the color BLACK, in the form of the Dog and Spider, also seemed to be of equal importance:
In 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' we first glimpse the Paw Prints of Sirius Black in this scene near the end of the movie:
The Paw Prints lead us straight to 'GO' Gary Oldman, who we've now seen connected to Jesus, the letters 'PP', the Twin Stars, the Spider-man, and the Black Sun. He also happens to be the ‘Godfather’, or ‘Dogfather’, of young Harry Potter:
In the very same sequence that we’re introduced to the Black Goldman, we're also introduced to the shape shifting Rat-man (PP) 'Peter Pettigrew':
I took the appearance of the letters PP as further confirmation that I was on the right track. Sirius was quickly becoming my number one contender for the Black Sun, or Dark Star, so I looked a little closer at the Harry Potter movies and noticed a few more 'PP' connections, more than I'd found anywhere else. Some of Harry's class mates are: Padma Patil, Parvati Patil, and Pansy Parkinson. Harry, Ron, and Hermione had also consumed 'Polyjuice Potion'. Was it all just one big coincidence?
I wondered why Sirius Black (Pontius Pilate) and the Rat (Peter Pettigrew) were appearing in close proximity to one another, and wondered if this new connection might shed some light on the Rat, whose Paw Print I’d noticed in the movie 'Flushed Away'. Considering the connection I’d recently encountered with Jesus, I couldn’t help but look at the posture of this Rat and wonder if there was some kind of connection with the crucified savior:
I’d found that the links between the Dog and Spider had lead me to some interesting conclusions, so I was eager to see what the Rat could teach me. It began to make more sense when I hit upon the idea that the 'Rat' could also be referred to as a 'Reservoir Dog':
The actor Michael Madsen played the role of 'Mr. Blonde' who we see in the poster above. He may have played the role of a Rat/Reservoir Dog, but in 'The Chronicles of Narnia' he also played the role of the Wolf 'Maugrim'. Michael Madsen/Maugrim happens to be killed by the eldest of the children called (PP) 'Peter Pevensie'. We saw Maugrims Paw Print earlier on in this snapshot:
It confirmed my suspicions that the Dog/Wolf and the Rat were really one and the same. These animals (along with the Spider) became interchangeable from this new perspective. I'm not saying that a Wolf/Dog is a Rat....that's obviously not true. But for the sake of the investigation the lines separating the Rat from the Dog/Wolf were beginning to blur together. As a symbol, the Dog/Wolf/Rat/Spider were merging into one entity.
I als noted that when reversed the ‘Dog Star’ becomes the ‘Rats God’.
We've seen the Paw Print of the Wolf 'Maugrim' (the Reservoir Dog/Rat) above, so it was interesting to note that in 'The Prisoner of Azkaban' the character Sirius Black is often referred to simply as 'The Grim'. Both 'Grim' references had connections with the Dog, the Rat, and the letters 'PP':
To take the Rat/Dog relationship one step further I looked at the star of 'Flushed Away', Roddy the Rat, who was voiced by actor Hugh Jackman:
The Rat was connected to the initials PP through the character ‘Peter Pettigrew’ in Harry Potter, so it made sense that Roddy the Rat/Jackman was also connected to the letters PP through the actress ‘Piper Perabo’ (who plays the wife of Christian Bale) in the movie ‘The Prestige’:
Rat actor Hugh Jackman also knew what it was like to be a BLACK Dog/Wolf:
It seemed fitting that all of these synchronicities lead me back to the Solar Cross. Here we see Wolferine in the centre of the Sun:
Which I believe is a reference to the Black Sun:
I’ve already mentioned the connection between Gary Oldman and the ‘Goldman’, so it seemed fitting that Wolverine (whose bones are made from metal) should also resonate with a ‘Metalman’ or ‘Tinman’. If this makes no sense whatsoever then please check out some of the blog links at the top of this page, as Tinman synchronicities have been getting quite a lot of attention recently and there’s been some great posts on the subject (The Blob, Centre Portal, A Few Shots to Shaman, The Stygian Port spring to mind, but I’m sure there’s a lot more).
Anyhow, the new Dog/Rat connection seemed to be working well. It was beginning to work so well that I was beginning to think that an alternative name for Sirius could just as easily be calledthe SPider-Star, or Rat-Star for that matter, which when reversed is:
Rat Star = ratS taR (or ‘Rat Star’)
There's a symmetry to the name Rat-Star which I’d only ever encountered before in the name ‘Thoth’. I might have had several animal associations at this point in the investigation but I always returned to my original concept for this Twin Sun: the Black Star.
We've looked at the Dog, the Rat and the Spider, so to finish up on this chapter of the story I’m going to add the 'Wolf' to the mix, by mentioning the work of Jim Sanders over at Centre Portal and his fascinating post entitled ‘God Flow like a Wolf Dog’. Jake Kotze from The Blob, will be meeting up with Jim in Thompson next weekend to do some work together on their next video collaboration, and in ‘God Flow like a Wolf Dog’ we can see this logo for the Thompson Zoo which Jim and Jake may (or may not) be visiting:
What grabbed my attention, other than the Paw Prints, was the fact that Jim mentions that the latest addition to Thompson Zoo is a White Arctic Wolf called Neige. The ‘White Wolf’ is another key symbol, which integrated itself into my research in the later stages, so I thought I’d include one or two of the synchronicities here as they seem to fit in quite nicely.
If I jump back for a moment to my previous post Paw Prints & Pentagrams :: Part 2, I mentioned that DNA and Blood somehow figured into the synchronicities at an early stage. One of my theories is that the Black Sun somehow affects us from across the yawning chasm of deep space and somehow influences each of us at the genetic level, which in turn influences our consciousness, our bodies, etc etc. We saw some examples of the ‘Red Hand Print/Blood’ and looked at Dexter the serial killing blood specialist.
If we look once again at actor Gary Oldman (Sirius Black/Spider Smith/Pontius Pilate) we find that he starred in the role of the blood-sucking Dracula, in the movie 'Bram Stokers Dracula'. As Sirius Black, G.Oldman could transform into a BLACK Dog, and as Dracula he has the ability to transform into a BLACK Wolf:
Coincidentally, the ‘Dog-Star’ resonating Dracula can also transform into a ‘Rats':
The reason that this ties in nicely with the latest addition to Thompson Zoo, the White Wolf called Neige, is because the Sirius resonating, blood-sucking, Wolf/Dog/Spider/Rat-man Gary Oldman also had a familiar in ‘Bram Stokers Dracula’ which happens to be a White Wolf:
I like to think that the Black Dog (Yin) is simply the polar opposite of the White Wolf (Yang), in much the same way as the Black Sun (Sirius) and the White Sun (our own local star residing at the heart of our Solar System) are simply two sides of the same coin. Maybe one Sun cannot exist without the other. Maybe our (White) Sun needs a ‘partner’ in order to perform the celestial dance across the heavens, which governs the 26,000 cycle known as the ‘Precession of the Equinox’.
In Dracula we see that Gary Oldman (the Black Dog/Sirius) shares a strong bond with his familiar, the White Wolf (or White Sun). There’s a connection between the two which is never explained in the movie, and yet the audience immediately understands their intimate relationship. It brings to mind the reoccurring theme of ‘Twins’. It was never just one Pentagram in my early synchronicities – it was always a pair. There wasn’t just one letter ‘P’ – there was always two of them. There was always a Yin to the Yang.
So getting back to the point (and wrapping this up) I just want to mention the letters ZO/OZ, which Jim pointed out in his latest post over at Centre Portal. In this logo for Thompson Zoo (the home of the White Wolf called Neige), we see the letters ZO/OZ symbolizing a Dog or a Fox:
The OZ connection is relevant because I stumbled across this book cover on Google over a year ago and noticed something in the illustration:
It got me wondering why the Black Sun and OZ were linked:
Recently I’ve wondered why the only two characters who interact with the title ‘OZ’ are the Dog and the Tinman (think Wolf-erine):
For anyone familiar with the work of Jim and Jake, you’ll know that OZ (according to Aleister Crowley’s Liber Oz) equates to the numerical value of 77. The letter's O and Z, although different from one another, are connected to the 'Twin' theme through the 'Twin 7's'.
The number 77 came to my attention while pondering the meaning behind the letters ‘PP’, because P is the 16th letter of the alphabet and (16) 1 + 6 = 7.
PP could therefore be represented by the numbers 16, 16 or 7,7
PP = 77
I wasn’t originally going to mention these numbers at this point in the story but ViølatoR mentioned them in the comments section of this post so I took it as a sign that I should touch on them briefly.
‘The Tower’ Tarot card is numbered 16 in the Major Arcana which means that the letters PP (16,16) also represents the ‘Two Towers’.
PP = 77 = Two Towers
If we look at the movie ‘The Two Towers’ we find a reference to the ‘White Hand Print’ via the ‘White Hand of Saruman’:
We’ve looked briefly at the Two Towers and how they’re related to the Hand Print, so let’s quickly look at the number 77 (OZ) which is also linked to the letters ‘PP’.
Early on in the investigation I noticed that the number 77 appeared in my Heroes TV show synchronicity. Considering both of these tickets look identical, the number 7 (at the top right corner) suggests that the number 77 could be associated with the (PP) Pair of Pentagrams:
We could also therefore associate the (PP) Paw Print of the Dog, which appears in the same sequence, with the number 77:
In Hebrew the number 77 equates to the letters ‘PAN’. It makes perfect synchronistic sense that we can therefore find the horned Pan (OZ/77) playing his (PP/77) Pan Pipes beside the ‘Flow’ (‘Wolf’ backwards) of a river, and the name ‘WHITE WOLF’, on this magazine cover:
Is it just me or does the Waterfall remind you of the Jacobs Ladder reference we just saw connected with the ‘White Hand Print’?
If you want a great analogy of what this river (or Watergate) represents, then I recommend checking out Jake’s latest post over at The Blob called ‘Gr8 WaterG8’. The nod that Jake gives to the movie ‘JFK’ adds more Sirius/Dog/Wolf/BlackStar resonance when we consider that Gary Oldman was the actor who played the role of Lee Harvey OZwald.
Jake and Jim – Hope you get a chance to make it to Thompson Zoo to see the White Wolf next weekend! Considering she inspired the latter part of this post, here’s a photo of Neige in all her glory:
In the next chapter of the story I'm going to take a closer look at the White Wolf/Sirius connection, the movie Slumdog Millionaire, the number 23, the Eye, and a cluster of stars known as the Pleiades. Until then......
Thanks for reading!
