Blue Star 27

While reading Jakes post about the number 2 I started to wonder how long it would take before the number 27 started wriggling its way into my own life. Jakes work often influences my own, and I had a feeling that this would be no exception.

A week or two later the movie Inner Space aired over the Christmas period here in the UK. Inner Space was a childhood favorite of mine so I decided to watch it for old times sake. I recalled that the poster featured a Hand that radiates Blue - a Blue SpiriT Palm - so I sat back, slipped on the old Sync Goggles, and waited for the movie to begin.

As soon as the White Rabbit made an appearance during the intro I knew there were going to be one or two surprises along the way.

Dennis Quaids character is miniaturized so that he can be injected into the White Rabbit for scientific purposes.

Things don't quite go as planned as the microscopic Quaid is instead injected into the rear end of actor Martin Short who plays a character named Jack.

Once the scientist injects Martin Short (the 'Jack' Rabbit) he collapses into the arms of some costumed animals before dying from a gun shot wound.

The animals include a G8or, a Squirrel, and a Wolf:

The Penguin also pops into view as the scientist quickly loses consciousness:

For some recent Penguin syncage check out The Lovely Bones.

Martin Short/Jack, now in a state of shock having just witnessed the scientists death, visits his doctor before being advised to take the day off work. He returns home, relaxes on his couch, and then begins to hear a voice inside his head. He isn't aware that Dennis Quaid has been injected into his body, so he naturally thinks that he's going bat-shit crazy.

Quaid quickly explains to Jack that he hasn't lost his marbles, that something went wrong with the White Rabbit experiment and that he's in dire need of his help. As Jack begins digesting this info someone knocks at the front door. He goes to answer it....and then Bingo! My first encounter with the number 27:

Jack invites the delivery guy inside and the 'voice in his head' warns him that he's in perilous danger. Dennis Quaid (now playing the role of Jacks intuition - his 'inner guidance') gives Jack some quick advice which helps him escape the delivery guy assassin.

I want to revisit a few more Inner Space syncs before I'm done with this post, but for now I'm going to stop there so that we can focus on the relevance of the number 27.

In Jakes 2 post he mentions that:

'On the plane to South Africa I tweeted the observation that 2 looks like it also contains an upside down and mirrored 7.

27 can also become two sevens or 77 (traditionally Pan/Oz).'

The number 2 is naturally associated with Duality. The number 27 (found within the 2) is therefore another number which can be associated with Duality.

27 can represent Inner Space (the Microcosm):

But it can also represent Outer Space (the Macrocosm):

27 seems to unite the Outer and the Inner. I like to think of it as a Doorway which bridges the gap between the Two.

My next encounter with the number 27 arrived the very next day via The Simpsons Movie. I'll get to that in a moment, but first it's worth mentioning that the film was released in the year 2007 (27). Also note in the poster below that the number 27 is sandwiched between the 77 ( two sevens = 27).

Again we find these numbers in relation to the Bridge:

In The Simpsons Movie the citizens of Springfield have been trapped within a giant glass dome. The dome has been placed over the town in order to seperate the Inner from the Outer. The guy below informs the Springfield residents that Operation Soaring Eagle is about to take effect, meaning that everyone quarantined within the glass prison is about to be annihilated.

A government chopper flies above the dome and opens a plug hole at the very top. This hole is the bridge (or Doorway) between Inner and Outer Space. Notice the subtle wink to the number 77 (27) in the name cargiLL:

Then came my next Bingo moment. The chopper responsible for opening the Doorway between Inner/Outer-Space had the number 27 on it's under-carriage:

As the chopper lowers a bomb into the dome the countdown to annihilation begins.

Homer, in his haste to save the day, climbs up the dome and drops through the hole, but as he plummets to the ground he takes the bomb with him. The doomsday clock shows that there's only 8 minutes to detonation, but as Homer kicks it in frustration the timer suddenly changes to 4 minutes 11 seconds (a sly wink to the 42 - a number associated with Jupiter and The Meaning of Life):

In The Simpsons Movie the man who is ultimately responsible for sending the Doomsday chopper (marked with the number 27) is none other than President Schwarzenegger.

The Schwazenegger connection didn't mean anything to me at the time, so I didn't really pay it much heed.

Two weeks passed since my first two encounters with the number 27 so I figured that these new synchronicities were beginning to fade away. However, that soon changed when my daughter asked me if I could get my hands on the movie Terminator 3.

I was a little reluctant at first because I recalled that T3 was one of the weakest films in the franchise, but as per usual I caved in and finally acquired it for her. Last week I decided to revisit the movie and in hindsight I'm glad that I did. I'm going to break the movie down in a moment, but let's first take a look at the release date.

2nd July = 2/7 or 27

Like the tagline suggests: The War (on Duality) begins with the number 27.

In essence all of the Terminator movies revolve around the Duality of Man vs. Machine, Creator vs. Created, and Terminator 3 fits the bill particularly well as it also focuses on the battle of the genders - Male vs Female.

Before peeling back the layers on Terminator 3 it's probably worth reminding ourselves that Jack (resident of number 27) has had a Machine inside of him:

The Iron Man is another character who has become ONE with his inner-Machine. The only difference is that he wears his Machine, or Tinman suit, outside of his skin. Jake has pointed out that the number 27 highlights the Iron Man in this poster:

The Terminator, Jack, and the Iron Man have each managed to integrate Man & Machine, Yin & Yang. They've managed to overcome Duality which might explain why the number 27 keeps entraining with these particular characters.

Anyway, let's now take a look at Terminator 3 to see how it fits into this pattern.

The film begins with (JC) John Connor, the Christ-like saviour of mankind, perched on the edge of a Bridge, reminiscing about past and future events.

In the very next scene a Blue Star begins to materialize in the middle of NOWhere, beneath the Full MOON - a time when the MON/NOW is fully in the floW.

As the Blue Star begins to take physical form, bolts of lighting illuminate a Blue Palm on the left of this screenshot:

For more on the syncnificance of the Blue Star I recommend checking out Blue Earth Star or Jupiter 4 Blue 27 . I think the first time I ever made a direct reference to the Blue Sun was back in my Nature of the Beast post. In that old post it feels appropriate that I linked the Blue Star with Pan (who resonates 77/27).

Out of the Blue Star emerges Arnold Christnegger. The Tinman - a perfect blend of Man/Machine - is born again:

As the Christnegger wanders through the wastelands he decides to make a pit stop at the Desert Star to find some suitable clothing:

The resurrected Christnegger enters the Desert Star via the XX. Notice that in the centre of the XX we find an arrow pointing Up and another pointing Down. The Doorway symbolizes Duality and Arnie has absolutely no problems stepping through it:

As he scans the crowds of horny women for suitable clothing, Arnie finds what he's looking for on the main stage. We find this stripper aligning with a Pair of Pentagrams - a perfect match:

Arnie asks the stripper for his clothes, who in turn tells him to 'Speak to the Hand'. Arnie naturally C's-Red and breaks the guys fingers. Notice that the Yellow Star represents the Outer, while the Blue Star represents the Inner:

Arnie exits the bar and slips on his new shades which take the form of a Pair of Pentagrams. Twin Stars symbolize Duality. Arnie has now merged Inner and Outer.

Whenever I find a reference to the Pair of Pentagrams I'm always reminded of my very first blog posts - Paw Prints & Pentagrams Part 1 and Part 2. Having found Arnie wearing the Pair of Pentagrams I assumed that some reference to the Dogs Paw Prints wouldn't be far away..... and quite surprisingly I wasn't far off the mark.

In the very next scene John Connor breaks into a veterinary practice. The Dogs (think Paw Prints) bark in their kennels as JC intrudes on their turf.

John Connor smashes a cabinet window and helps himself to some pain killers (he's in distress having just been involved in a motorcycle accident). Later on in the movie we learn that these tablets are designed to chemically neuter dogs. JC therefore consumes Dog/goD pills!

While JC is knocked out for the count (due to swallowing one too many Dog tablets) Arnie is busy trying to get his bearings on the current time period. As he calibrates his internal clock we see the numbers 124 (resonating Jupiter) appear at the bottom of the screen:

124 appears once again in a slightly different configuration:

Above we see that Arnie (the Male Terminator) views the world through a Red lens, while the TX (the Female Terminator) sees everything in Blue.

The TX executes JC's future general (the Blue guy in the image above) with a press of her Jupiter Finger and then sets about hunting down her next target.

One of these targets is a character called KATe (played by actress Claire CATherine Danes) who we find sleeping beneath the spiral S - a symbol of the Blue Worm Xonecuilli.

KATe (an animal doctor) receives an emergency call-out in the early hours of the morning to help diagnose a clients Cat problem.

Before taking a closer look at KATe's connection with the CAT, it's worth noting that Claire Danes played the role of a Shooting Star in the movie Stardust. She is of course a Blue Star:

Coincidentally, in Terminator 3 she is destined to become a Shooting Star...

...but I'm getting ahead of myself here. Going back to the movie, KATe, our Blue Star, opens the doors of her veterinary practice and meets her client whose been having some issues with her Cat. The Cat requiring emergency treatment is called Hercules:

I'm sure that Hercules is an inside nod to one of Arnies old movie roles, but from a sync perspective the appearance of the Twin Towers, a symbol of Duality, makes purrrrfect sense:

While we're on the subject of the Twins let's briefly revisit the movie Inner Space. Shortly after actor Martin Short (resident of house number 27) is injected with the microscopic Dennis Quaid, he returns to work and passes by this notice board displaying the name 'Gemini'.

Gemini obviously brings to mind the Gemini Twins known as Castor and Pollux.

Arnie Christnegger/Hercules has played the role of a Gemini Twin:

Actor Dany DeVito is Arnies brother in the movie Twins, so it's worth pointing out that DeVito also played the role of a horned Pan-like character in the Disney version of Hercules:

I've already mentioned that Pan is associated with the number 77, and two sevens, or twin sevens, synchronize nicely with the number 27.

Will Morgan recently wrote a superb post featuring the Terminator Tinman and Hercules. Check out I looked, and there before me was a White Horse to find out more.

Getting back to the Hercules/Cat connection it's worth noting that the mighty Hercules is often depcited wearing the impenetrable skin of the Nemean Lion. Hercules' battle with the Cat was the very first of his Twelve Labours. This picture dates back to around 500 B.C.

Hercules and the Cat are ONE:

Here we see Hercules the Cat aligning with KATe (Claire CATherine Danes), our Blue Star:

After seeing to her Cat client, KATe finds (JC) John Connor lying on the floor of her practice, gradually awakening from his comatose state which was caused by the dog pills he ingested earlier. With relative ease KATe snatches a paint-ball gun from him. In true 'Shooting Star' fashion she blasts John Connor twice, one in the Palm of each hand, before locking him inside a cage:

JC's palms glow with fluorescent yellow paint, invoking the SpiriT Palm of Christ:

To date I've looked at a lot of synchronicities involving the Blue Hand, but over the last few weeks I've kept encountering the Yellow Hand. The Yellow Hand seems to be a natural progression from the Blue, and I'm sure this new pattern will develop as time progresses.

We've already seen some references to the Yellow Hand in The Simpsons Movie:

Back when I first started this blog I looked at an example of the Yellow Hand in the movie Flushed Away. Roddy the Ratte uses it to go Up in the Air:

Coincidentally, a recent example appeared in James Rattes' Up in the Air post. James pointed out that behind George Clooneys head we find a Pair of Suns (there's that Duality theme again) which have been created out of Yellow Hand Prints.

In The Lovely Bones post Jim Sanders showed that Mr. Fox (voiced by George Clooney) entrains with this fascinating number.

The cage brings us back to where we left off, with the Yellow Handed JC trapped behind bars with KATe (the Cat-woman/Blue Star) as his captor:

Moments after his imprisonment, the deadly female TX shows up. As she searches the veterinary practice she scans one of JC's discarded bandages and we find the letters CAT superimposed over his blood. Notice in the images above that the bars of the cage look visually similar to the bars of the DNA strand below.

From my perspective, DNA seems to be symbolic of a cage which keeps our Spirit captive while we live on this earthly plane, kind of like a cat in a cage. When our Spirit one day leaves the physical body and is set free, our DNA prison no longer serves a purpose and begins to decay. All that remains is a pile of Lovely Bones.

A quick look at the name of actress 'Claire CATherine DANes' reveals that DNA is found within DANes, and so is the CAT. For more on the CAT/DNA relationship, check out Keeping Track of the Cat or Cheryl Cole the Catwoman.

Remember we looked at a Cat named Hercules just a few moment ago.

Pan (seen above hanging from the name Hercules) also points towards our DNA. If we rotate these letters and jumble the sequence we find that:

DNA (one of my favorite sync-subjects) always seems to lead me back to the primary target: JC

JC is of course the Blue Super-Star:

He seems to represent the Blue Ray of Light (our Spirit) which is bound within our DNA, waiting to be released from its genetic prison....or something like that. You might find the Blue Star by looking up into Outer Space, but it's also found within.

Getting back to Terminator 3 our main characters, (JC) John Connor and KATe, manage to escape from the TX assassin as Arnie Christnegger arrives on the scene. He ushers them inside this animal hospital van as he turns to confront his female nemesis:

The logo on the side of the van reminded of this image from 'The Number 23' starring (JC) Jim Carrey. They're almost identical.

While I'm having a rant about DNA I'd might as well point out that we receive 23 chromosones from our MoM and 23 from PoP. 23 is a key number when it comes to our genetics.

The female TX is now severely pissed off having lost her two main targets (John Connor and KATe), so she decides to blow off some steam by bringing out her advanced weaponry which comes in the form of a Blue Hand:

After blasting the Christnegger she reveals her Blue Jupiter Finger, a device which gives her the ability to hot-wire and manipulate any mechanical device she comes in contact with.

The TX assassin uses her Jupiter Finger to steal a Blue/Yellow crane and goes on the rampage as she pursues JC and KATe:

Meanwhile KATe isn't happy as she bounces around in the back of animal hospital van. She's effectively become a 'Kat in a Cage':

As the TX races after the animal hospital van we see that her Hand aligns with the color Blue. This Blue Ball brings to mind the Blue Star seen earlier in the movie:

It also brings to mind this Blue Balloon which we saw at the start of this post:

And then came the next Bingo moment. As the chase sequence heats up we see that an ambulance (remotely controlled by the TX) displays the number 27:

Arnie Christnegger, dangling from the crane, is smashed straight into the 27:

The collision with Hercules leaves the ambulance a little worse for wear.

Arnie & co manage to make their escape and the TX is a little miffed that her Blue & Yellow Jupiter mobile has been smashed up.

She hunts them down yet again and this time the chase continues inside the Skynet labs. As JC and KATe run through a circular chamber (which looks surprisingly similar to the Large Hadron Collidor located at CERN) they pass the number 27:

The Large Hadron Collidor is actived and the TX becomes stuck to it like a magnet. Her pursuit grinds to a halt as the skin is pulled from her face and body.

As her true essence is revealed, the number 27 flashes on-screen:

The frustrated TX produces a Blue Disc (or Blue Sun?) and uses it to slice and dice her way of her tricky predicament. This time we get a big close-up of the number 27:

The letters 'CT' appear directly above the number 27.

CT makes me think of the C(A)T

John Connor and KATe make a dash for the presidential bunker, but before they can finally enter this safe haven they must unlock the Doorway with a unique code.

The password KATe types into the keyboard is Avalon 412:

With the numbers of Jupiter (412) keyed in, they are granted access to the bunker.

Finally, the broken Christnegger holds the Doorway open for them and removes the threat of the TX by sacrificing himself in true Christ-like fashion.

Skynet triggers the nukes.....

....the world is transformed, illuminated by a thousand explosions....

....and the pair of Blue Stars live on to shine another day.

Whoooaaaaa! That was more long-winded than I first anticipated, but hopefully you got something out of it.

Thanks for taking the time to read these thoughts.

Much love.


p.s. after finishing this post I've just realized that this is my 27th blog post.
Go figure!!!
