[WARNING: Crazy rambling below]
By now everyone & his dog has watched or heard the news that a new Pope has been elected by a rather expeditious conclave. And contrary to the expectations of many, the cardinals elected a man from Latin America who chose --rather fittingly in light of the circumstances-- to be known as Francis I.
The fact that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a member of the Jesuit order, is something that I'm sure will keep the students of St. Malachy's prophecies in overdrive in the days to come --The Superior General of the Society of Jesus is unkindly known as the 'Black Pope'.
Even the new 'vicar of Christ' during his 1st speech jokingly said that the cardinals had gone to the "end of the world" to choose a bishop --geographically speaking, of course...
But as I was following the news delivered at Twitterspeed, the 1st thing that came to my head was "is there some numerological/astrological significance that the new Pontiff was chosen on 13/03/13?"
Turns out there is (I think).
Thanks also to Twitter I learned that on a day like this, 232 years ago, the planet Uranus was discovered by astronomer William Herschel. Compelled by a discussion started at my friend Mike Clelland's blog --in which Woody Allen's film The Sleeper was mentioned, which prompted me to write the famous quote from Frank Herbert's Dune "the sleeper must awaken" (hold that in mind)-- I googled the astrological significance of the planet Uranus:
"Uranus is known in astrology as the "Awakener," [emphasis mine] since its aspects and transits bring sudden changes and shocks. It rules Aquarius, the quirky innovator, and sometimes these upheavals are a necessary break from restrictions in favor of a more liberated path."
But there's more: Turns out Bergoglio became a priest on December 13th, 1969. Another 13 in this man's life.
Yet the thing that made MY head go into overdrive is because somehow --don't ask me why-- I feel this is all connected to the controversial UMMO affair.
Perhaps it's just the similarities between the UMMO symbol & the astrological sibil of Uranus. But I think it's also the fact that the 1st book I ever read about UMMO --way before it was 'debunked'-- had been written by an Argentinian. The author's name escapes my mind though...
From a semiological point of view, my own personal interpretation of the UMMO symbol is of two separate worlds or realities --represented by the 2 curves or hyperbola-- which are somehow able to 'touch' through a threshold thanks to a third connecting element. The way interpret it --again, don't ask me why-- is that this represents a future event.
Other interesting synchro of the day: the ALMA radio telescope array --the largest in the world-- was unveiled in the Atacama desert, in Chile --Chile & Argentina are neighboring countries.
Oh, and 'Alma' literally means 'soul' in Spanish ;)
So what does this all mean? I haven't the foggiest, but I had to write this down anyway :P
[END OF CRAZY RAMBLING]
[UPDATE]: Pheew! the MU guys went easy on me during ep. 910 *relieved*
In the meantime, check out Loren Coleman's thoughts re. the Ultimate Black Pope. Turns out jokers --that would be me-- can get predictions right once in a while ;)
When it developed that the first Pope was a Jesuit, I (@CryptoLoren) then tweeted this: "Before #Pope named @red_pill_junkie's humorous comment ab #GuyFawkes mask was prophetic. Jesuits were associated with the Gunpowder Plot. #V"
[UPDATE II]: Tim Boucher proposed yet another interesting link between Bergoglio & the UMMO affair: the wolf.
In their infamous typewritten letters, the Ummites told their recipients that their planet orbitted a star our astronomers know as Wolf 424, part of a binary system approximately 14.2 light years away.
One of the most famous stories about St. Francis of Assisi --the saint in whose honor Bergoglio chose his papal name-- is that of the wolf of Gubbio, a terrible man-killer that was peacefully tamed by the grace of the future leader of the Franciscan order.
And of course, there's also the famous Capitoline Wolf (Lupa Capitolina), or she-wolf of Rome, which nursed the twin brothers Romulus & Remus and later became the symbol of the city.
What do these inter-species unions mean?
