The Chi Rho - a glyph that represents Christ

I work in IT.  I still call it that – IT.  The industry likes to refer to itself as ICT now though – distancing itself from the NERD overhead that comes with being one of the IT Crowd?  I-T is ramping up it’s presence.  That is, the letter ‘I’ and the letter ‘T’ in either of the two combo’s it may appear in or as any other rendition yo umay conjure up.  I’ve linked the obvious ones for the title of this post – it ti id – the inclusion of chi, x & qi comes from a few little flickers offered to me by the trusty cosmos.

During a recent Xathon in syncville, I made the connection with X and chi.  Chi being X in the Greek alphabet.  Chi is also how Qi is pronounced, Qi can mean energy flow, gas, spirit or life force. So qi is a flip on id which is Freud’s “The it” – a literal translation of “die id”.  Love how id is coupled with die in German for obvious reasons.

I feel that the literal definition of “the it” is a limited view on the importance of this element of the psyche.  Apparently traits of “the it” are uncoordinated while at the same time the same traits are working towards comfort and happiness with Freud’s Pleasure Principal also applied to add further context to this jibber jabber.

I can’t understand how the tangible progression we all are making towards a more peaceful existence could be viewed as an uncoordinated one.  That drive that “the it” provides appears to be showing us how coordinated these elements are every day via sync.

I digress…

Back to Chi for a bit.  As I understand, Chi is a coloquialism for Chicago – a city that is emerging as a sync centre of sorts.  From a sync perspective the movie “Chicago” has a lot going on that I will not delve into here though I will include the poster below to highlight the red C that is thrust centre stage via promotional media for the film.

One of the many Chicago movie posters with the highlighted red C.

The Red Sea/C was parted by Moses.  The story is told in the Book of Exodus.  Was the Red Sea parted by Chi?

Seeing red pairs with the red C nicely.  Typical depictions of AI in pop culture have red eyes.  Check out a T-800 or HAL-9000 for some clear examples.  A planet that gets a lot of play here is Jupiter.  Jupiter has its famous giant red spot which is also referred to as the eye of Jupiter.  Red Eye – Seeing Red.  This red eye links up to the AI or robotic nature of Cing red as Jupiters symbol – ♃ – is also the alchemical symbol for tin.  The link is made concrete by the Tin Woodsman for The Wizard of Oz.

Poring over glyphs – as one does – I ran across what is described in unicode as Japanese Hiragana letter Ti which looks like this Hiragana - chi.

To me it looks like Saturn’s symbol.  Nice, huh, but I have gone all alchemical on that glyph already in a previous post and as certail mythologies tell it, Jupiter is Saturn’s son, so I flip and reflect Chi/Saturn into ♃/Jupiter/Tin/214/241/42/24/412/421/124/142 I feel 21/12 as a split ♃.

We can take things a little further too if we flip “id” around a bit.  we can do this by flipping the lowercase “d” in ored to make a lowercase “p”.  with the inclusion of the “i” we can then make scrumptious pi.  You may already be familiar with the glyph for pi.

The glyph for pi

I won’t go revisionist on  pi here though I will leave it up to you to look back up at the Hiragana Ti glyph, recall its resonance with Saturn’s glyph, further recall the flipped Saturn glyph that made Jupiter/Tin’s glyph and then see how Hiragana Ti and pi’s glyphs are very similar too if flipped.

A sidenote for g80rz who are checking The Sync Whole is a bit redundant now though this is of course bringing us back to JT/2010.

Anyway, that’s pretty much it for now.  Omnidirectional peace to you, G80rz!

Wync00026 – You two, Silver & Gold.

King and Queen, the Sun and The Moon, Gold and Silver

In the shit house a shotgun
Praying hands hold me down
Only the hunter was hunted
In this tin can town
Tin can town
No stars in the black night
Looks like the sky fell down
No sun in the daylight
Looks like it’s chained to the ground
Chained to the ground
The warden said:
“The exit is sold.
If you want a way out,
Silver and gold.”

Broken back to the ceiling
Broken nose to the floor
I scream at the silence, it’s crawling
It crawls under the door
There’s a rope around my neck
And there’s a trigger in your gun
Jesus say something
I am someone, I am someone
I am someone

Captain and kings
In the ships hold
They came to collect
Silver and gold
Silver and gold

Seen the coming and the going
Seen them captains and the kings
See them navy blue uniforms
See them bright and shiny things
Bright shiny things

The temperature is rising
The fever white hot
Mister, I ain’t got nothing
But it’s more than you got

Chains no longer bind me
Not the shackles at my feet
Outside are the prisoners
Inside the free
Set them free
Set them free

A prize fighter in a corner is told
Hit where it hurts
Silver and gold

OK Edge, Play the BLUES

Peace

DOOM

Madvillain album cover

I have been a Doom fan for a while.  This one he wrote in cold blood with a toothpick» is one of my favourite lines in rap music ever.  I was a KMD fan back in the olden days.  Dude’s real name is Daniel Dumile.  He used to be MF Doom – MF standing for metal-fingers or metal-face – and recently he’s dropped the MF so he’s now just known as Doom.  Dumille modelled his Doom persona after the one and only Marvel Super Villain, Dr. Doom and actually refers to himself as the Super Villain.  I copped a set of the Doom Dunks when they dropped.

Doom likes to be mysterious.  He’s been playing around with the fine line between the product and the person behind the product since he put the mask on.  It was originally meant to be a statement against the materialism that had plagued rap music.  Doom did bring it back to basics, however Doom was embroiled within a paradox that he at first may not have realised that he had created.  He had crystalised the Anti-Image image rather than escaping the form he wished to be freed from – limited/shallow.

Doom teamed up with Danger Mouse and Adult Swim in 2006 to form Dangerdoom. In building this post I came across a pic of Danger Mouse dressed as the Tin Woodsman from The Wizard of OZ.

I first got introduced to Danger Mouse via his 2003 Lex Records release “Ghetto Pop Life” when he teamed up with rapper Jemini.  Danger Mouse released “The Grey Album” in 2004, a mashup of Jay-Z raps from “The Black Album” and The Beatles “White Album”

Doom’s mask has changed over the years.  The current form is a replica of the mask worn by Russel Crowe in the film Gladiator:

Maximus' mask

So this links the Black Bird to the web as Russel’s surname envokes The Crow.

Gladiator was relaeased the same year (2K) as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.  You may recall this scene in Gladiator that includes a Tiger:

Crouching Gladiator, Unhidden Tiger...

Crouching Gladiator, Unhidden Tiger...

Anyway, Doom’s recently been interviewed by EyeWeekly.com and I thought I’d drop a quote here for its 214 resonance.

Here on the dark side of Jupiter, the weather is great around this time of the year. Atlanta and New York are both home as well.

Doom lived in NY/OZ.  He’s since moved to Atlanta/Atlantis.  Now he states that he’s living on the dark side of Jupiter?  I knew there was always more to this fella than met the eye/ear.

Marvel's Super Villain is a Green Tinman. Resonator of all that is BAD. His vanity motivated him greatly.

You will notice around 1:24 that the beat changes to “Phantom of the Synths” by the late J Dilla.  This beat resonates with me in a plethora of ways but links up to this blogs initial post.  In that post I try to mark out my synchro-journey UP to that particular point.  The journey was marked by rap music.  In particular, it was “The Pledge” by Jay Electronica that contained a shout to DMT/dimethyltryptamine – known to be a key ingredient of Ayahuasca.  At 2:14 DOOM says “Villain” which is pretty BADass.  Well Jay Electronica has another track that is called “Dimethyltryptamine”.  It utilises the same J Dilla beat as Doom uses in Gazillion Ear.  Check it…

JD’s beat’s name vibes with Phantom of the Opera (The Instrumentation for Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s Phantom includes 27 parts), which resonates with Jupiter in Pisces.

Doom himself has taken on the phantom persona, further echoing Jupiter.

Corny, but it synchs up...

Aesthetic Apparatus have a poster print called Phantom Doom that has Jeus-Bolts a-plenty:

Gears/Bolts/ScissorTongue/Blood/Drops/Bullseyes = Phantom Doom

Gears/Bolts/ScissorTongue/Blood/Drops/Bullseyes = Phantom Doom (The tear-drop has been following me around these days too)

Check this page of the AA site for Bluebirds, Diamonds, Abe lincoln and Triggerfinger action.  In addition to these themes, the same page features the Saturn Finger.

Peace

UPDATE:

Doom has also recorded as Viktor Vaughn.  “Vaudeville Villain” is classic DOOM.  It carried a track titled “Rae Dawn” vibing a recent vid Jake Kotze did for Radio 8-Ball.

Enjoy!
