A Clock in London
An Hourglass . I was not surprised that there was an entire episode, in the BIG BROTHER House, during Summer 2008, that played around the theme of TIME. There were Clocks to mind to for 24 hours, and a huge Hourglass to refill, and a big Clock to build in the garden. There were also old objects to dig up and to guess their period in TIME. See the end of this long article to find out why!
I am taking my TIME to write this article. I shall do several “drafts” first, write it during DECEMBER 2008, and publish it at the TIME when the SUN passes over the first degrees of CAPRICORN, ruled by SATURN, the great Lord of TIME.
Yes, it is about TIME… that we change our mind about TIME.
You may have watched an excellent TV program, on BBC 2, early DECEMBER last year, about the concept of TIME. The young Professor, Brian Cox, asked the question : “What TIME is it?”, and demonstrated well how this question is pretty a hard one to answer !
As a Philosopher, I have been pondering on this subject for many years, wrote extensively about it in my first book, and here are some of my findings and thoughts.
So, Brian Cox asked a pretty good question…
…precisely. Philosophy always starts with questions, that are very unusual and/or quirky preferably, yet simple and familiar, and…the rest follow, or not, Ad Libitum.
Philosophy (and Science) have very much to do with good thinking, yes, but more importantly, with good “reception”. I mean a good receptive mind, eyes to watch and ears to listen, in order to receive. It is strangely an… UPSIDE DOWN phenomena, and we shall see why as we go along.
To receive, that is if “THE HEAVENS” are willing to reveal ( pour down ) some of their secrets, and this willingness always depends on TIME, like : “Is it the right TIME now to manifest this or that TRUTH on Planet Earth ?” Well, The Heavens say yes to this some TIME, and this explains why all over the World great discoveries seem to happen during the same TIME lapses, more or less.
So, it is just a matter of TIME that we know everything !
Or is it ?
If , as Brian Cox suggested, TIME is, ( it does not run, it does not pass, WE are the ones who are running / passing through it ), then it is the same for knowledge : TRUTH is, and we meet with some portions of that truth, when the TIME is right.
OK; TIME is. Here are several little drawings for you. They show man relative to TIME, and TIME relative to man, in different ways :
( I suggest that you look in WIKIPEDIA for the beautiful -real- shape of an Ellipsoid ! ).
The ROAD concept is an interesting one, because if this road is ONE, that is : always there, then WE are the Past, the Present, the Future, although we appear to be WALKING, one step at a TIME.
One step at a TIME, precisely, to do one step at a TIME, this is what we were told to do because of the belief that we were on a road, a PATH, that would eventually lead us towards the goal that we ( were supposed to ) want to achieve. So a very LINEAR type of thinking.
From A to C through B,
sort of thing. With this, both the notions of SOURCE ( or SEED ) and CONSEQUENCE become paramount. And it is a completely DUAL ( black and white, good and bad, up and down ) way of thinking, no doubt. “Do make the RIGHT CHOICE or…perish”. UPS ! More about this later. and
But Psychology and Hypnotism brought about the revelation that we can travel through TIME, in such a way that one experiences being truly Present to another moment in TIME, that moment being either Past or Future.
May be yourself, one day, have practiced going BACK to your childhood, in order to “re-live” a moment in TIME, meeting that little girl or that little boy that you were, but still very much alive, somewhere…And the thing is , it worked ! The little child of the “Past” is still very “Present”, and to reassure him or her with your ( Present and grown-up ) tender words, can work a miracle indeed. That of transformation and healing. I guess that the effect of this in your Present was very gratefully felt, as it should be.
In episodes of Past Life Regression, one can even go further, further BACK, beyond the separation of Birth-Rebirth, and Death. And be again who we were in the distant Past.
Because we ARE ( still very much alive in ) the PAST.
More than that, if we stretch our thinking a bit, we will come to the realization that we are absolutely every one who ever lived in the Past, WE ARE OUR ANCESTORS.
I am you, and you are me. I was you, you were me. How come ?
Because of the logical law of Multiplicity.
If I was him and her during the last century, and him again in the 17th century, and her in the 14th century, and him in the 6th century, etc, and you as well were him and her, my neighbor, and my husband, and my sister, my child, and I was yours, your child, and also your father….Etc, etc, you get the picture. We were every one. WE ARE ALL ONE PERSON.
And do not forget, that these ANCESTORS, similarly to the child of your childhood, are still very much alive. And can be encountered, …at any TIME . They are us ! We are them.
Hence the concept of Multidimensional TIME.
Beside that, next, it is not stupid to think the concept of FUTURE in very similar terms.
As I came to the conclusion that we are us in the Future. WE ARE GOD (!). God is us in the Future. With regard to our immense and century old reverence for this very singular and outstandingly perfect being we call GOD. HE/SHE (THEY !) could be us in the future, which would explain all these callings and fascination. Think about it, it makes sense.
In India, Gods and Goddesses are represented at times with multiple heads. There you go.
So we move but REALITY does not. TIME is what restricts us on Earth , but TIME is somewhat an illusion. Perhaps a useful illusion, a precious tool, ( as everything else is ), for that what we are all about. While we are here.
And we are THE HEAVENS, that I mentioned above, that have the entire perspective on TIME and SPACE.
I know, ( a bit far fetched ? ),
this is why I called it : ” new philosophy”.
If you have found all this a wee bit complex so far, wait for this next one : TIME, as we know it, is made of many simultaneous WHEELS that are turning, and some are turning CLOCK WISE, and some are turning ANTI CLOCK WISE, ( I study this more at length in my second book, on FRACTALS, see my profile on the other page ), it depends on which dimension you are in, as the passage between a dimension always involves a phenomena of REVERSAL. Some call it the MIRROR phenomena.
Here are some more drawings, my pleasure :
There is so much to say about this REVERSAL phenomena.
After all, we ourselves are made like that. For example, it is well known that the RIGHT side of the brain corresponds to the LEFT side of our body, and that the LEFT side of the brain corresponds to the RIGHT side of our body.
Next JANUARY, I intent to write here much more extensively about this subject, about the Law of OPPOSITES and how it influences our lives, but for now, let’s gather our thoughts and relate all this to the concept of TIME.
The MIRROR drawing shows two triangles in REVERSE position. “as above, so below”, is the ancient adage. but, understand it well, it is …in REVERSE ! ABOVE becomes BELOW, and RIGHT becomes LEFT, type of thing. Also the Peak becomes the Base, and vice & versa. Why ? Because they could be MIRRORING some STARS… By the way, I just cannot help thinking that the secret of the Pyramids of Egypt lie in this REVERSAL coding, and that in fact, there is a REVERSED Pyramid down under the actual Pyramid, waiting to be excavated. Am I right or am I wrong ? Well, just food for thought.
It would explain the Secret Societies fascination for precious stones, such as DIAMONDS; diamonds do have this lozenge shape, don’t they ? ( see the COMTE de SAINT GERMAIN story ). Interestingly, pendulums do have this lozenge shape too, most of the TIME.
It would explain also the Secret Societies fascination for REVERSING words and even sentences in their code language.
So, in order to understand the truth beyond the VEIL, I recommend that you start to think every thing in REVERSE, all that has been imposed on us, the people, as the “positive” truth, so far. This will probably make you able you to fly to another dimension ( well intended also; have a look at my article : “how to read into a popular cartoon”, below, in this Weblog page. Also, see the TAROT card, THE HANGED MAN, arcane XII, for inspiration ).
REVERSE is something that students of Esoteric School are asked to practice. For example, at night, before going to sleep, they are encouraged to recall all the events of the day , but not starting with the early hours of the morning, starting with the latest hours of the day, in REVERSE.
Similarly, it is well known that this REVERSE occurrence strikes the poor fellow on the edge of death : his life is recalled to him, speedily, in REVERSE order.
And in old days, the old days of religion, it was a serious practice, in the Catholic Church, to do a “General Confession”. A confession of all the sins of one’s life, ( so not the usual “from my last confession” list… ), in REVERSE order. This was traditionally done before a life changing event , such as MARRIAGE, or entry into a Convent, or going into War, or dying.
Next, isn’t it striking that in THE MEDIAS at the moment, (well since the last 8 years or so), there have been an intense programming around the theme of THE PAST, BACK, RETURN, ( see illustration below ), ARCHIVES, MEMORY, ANCESTRY, ANNIVERSARY, and the like. Starting with the last decades and going backwards. We seem to be in the 1950s now.
It is similar to this Catholic “General Confession” before a life changing event, like a purifying phase, and/or next, somewhat an UNIFYING phase ( the Esoteric meaning of MARRIAGE ), before the start of a new Cycle of TIME.
The new cycle starts with the symbol of an EGG. it has almost the same shape as the figure ZERO, purposely ( and also the shape of the female genital “ouverture” from which all earth birth can take place ). It is an in-between place. ( see the symbolism of the VESICA PISCIS, in WIKIPEDIA ). ZERO marks the imperceptible moment of change, a moment sacred to Esotericism called the moment of FISSION, when every thing won’t be the same again. Like a METAMORPHOSIS. ( hence the beloved symbol of the BUTTERFLY ) . From then on, every thing will be in REVERSE.
( Ever wondered why your dreams seem to be the REVERSE of your actual day life ? it is well known that sleep is a little DEATH experience ).
Esoterically, this “falling asleep” is DA-AT. Associated with DEATH, sure. (see my study, below, in this Weblog page, called :” The Qabbalah Tree of life and the Western calendar year”). THE HIGH PRIESTESS presides, perfectly posed, over this passage, that is like an Abyss, or BLACK HOLE. she is the guardian of the VEIL. The VEIL of the VIRGIN. The HYMEN. A membrane. like the membrane of the chrysalis. At the place of ZERO, ( see in modern Physics, the new discoveries about this ZERO point ). Once this veil is snapped, secrets are revealed, and a new life can take place. In a REVERSE order.
so, anyway, this REVERSAL phenomena is, in our present days, abundantly enhanced everywhere in the Medias, for two reasons : that one that I have just described above, because we are going through a very important passage, and are now inside an exceptional state of “in-between” two Cycles of TIME. A ZERO state. Numerically, it shows because we are not in the 19 something anymore, but in the 200 and 20 something. Till 2111 ! A long ZERO Period.
This is why there have been big WHEELS turning in the big Capitals of the World. Watch out for more of these Wheels elsewhere…! For instance, what is turning on our Television screens just before the News ?!
Also, very interestingly, it all started around 2003, with suddenly the appearance and abundance of images in the shape of an EGG, or ZERO. The OXO cubes adverts ( see below ), are one of the best example of this. And next what happened is that big drama on BIG BROTHER celebrity, -very heated and emotional, that means feeding the energy-, in 2007. And it all started with a dispute related to some OXO cubes in the kitchen. Why the commercial name of “OXO cubes” was pronounced at all, when they cover their cans of beer, for instance, in order to avoid clandestine publicity ?!
This is how the OXO cubes were advertised during 2005. Notice the EGG shape; the great “X”; and the CHAKRA colors.
Much later, after the BIG BROTHER celebrity scandal, I noticed that SUPERMARKETS were not allowed to display their own brands of cubes, and that the OXO cubes were to be placed, at the center, at the level of the eyes of the customers. It has been like this ever since. Why so much fuss around a little cube, a simple culinary item ? Well, because it is all there : the EGG or ZERO shape, the “X”, and the cubical form. ( cubes have eight edges, squares and lozenges have four edges. There are forms that correspond to the element EARTH. Notice them in the MEDIAS, and in new or old brands, they are in abundance…Even cars are going to get square ! ). And because, precisely, it works like that : very little things, things that are ( too ) common, things apparently unnoticeable, they go directly into the Collective Unconscious without any kind of barrier form us. Is it not the way that the great and ( real !) MAGICIAN, Derren Brown works at all ? have
During that time and after, around 2004 and 2005, we were also served with plenty images of BABIES. After that, with plenty images of MARRIAGE. Couples in BLACK and WHITE outfits, very much in love…There you go.
We have just entered the 21rst Century, haven’t we. Well, check the TAROT Card : THE WORLD, ( or THE UNIVERSE ), it is number 21, and the Androgynous central figure, is represented inside a…big EGG ! Incidentally, an Androgynous is both male and female, so at the center of the great “X” and reconciling all differences. Like a Sacred MARRIAGE.
Coming back to the presence of turning WHEELS in our environment, the second reason is that we are moving from the SAGITTARIUS / GEMINI Period into the new CAPRICORN / CANCER Period, in the context of the grand new AQUARIUS Era.
( by the way, I want to clarify here, that the Aquarian Man of AQUARIUS is a Water Pourer, and not a Water Bearer. Sure, “AQUA” means Water in Latin, but AQUARIUS is an Air Sign, and as such, we see him actually pouring down the Water of PISCES, like this :
Moreover, this below, does not indicate Water, or Water Waves, but they are signs of vibration or oscillation related to Energy, especially New Energy : a Television, a Radio, a Micro Wave, a Mobile Phone, a Computer, are few good examples; there are so many more, known and unknown, elaborate and very clever, as AQUARIUS will typify, and all ready has, High New Technology, Science, Chemistry, Quantum Physics, Nuclear Energy, Wind Energy, Solar Energy, any thing and everything that will propel us into an entire new conception of Matter, Time, Energy and Space. Notice that all these High Tech devices function at the present TIME with Electricity, but this might change in the future :
I so do envision a Wireless future. There you go.
And what explains the amount of flood disasters in many parts of the World, between 2000 and 2010, is Uranus and Neptune in a very strong “Mutual Reception” placement during those years. Which means that Uranus was in Pisces. And Neptune was in Aquarius).
So, what is this SAGITTARIUS / GEMINI and new CAPRICORN / CANCER Period ? Well I have discovered a new cycle of TIME that is relatively unknown. One that covers about 90 years. ( my -big !- first book is devoted entirely and extensively to this discovery ).
It goes like that : we were in a LIBRA / ARIES Period between 1740 and 1830.
We were in a SCORPIO / TAURUS Period between 1830 and 1920.
We were in a SAGITTARIUS / GEMINI Period between 1920 and 2010.
And we are now moving into a CAPRICORN / CANCER Period that will last between 2010 and 2100.
( these are just few examples, it covers all historical TIMES, back to the first Century AD ).
The United States of AMERICA is SAGITTARIUS. ( EUROPE is GEMINI, therefore, its opposite and complementary; GEMINI is an AIR sign; BELGIUM is GEMINI ).
Interestingly, JUDAISM is on this polarity GEMINI / SAGITTARIUS.
CHINA is CAPRICORN. ( AFRICA is CANCER, its opposite and complementary; CANCER is a WATER sign ).
Interestingly, ISLAM is on this polarity CAPRICORN / CANCER.
SCOTLAND and SWITZERLAND are also CAPRICORN. Also the NORDIC countries and the ARCTIC, and the ANTARCTICA.
And so much more.
But this should give you a good starting clue in understanding the Present and Past affairs of the World.
Let me just give you some key words related to SAGITTARIUS : travel / movement / impulsion / migration / expansion / the WEST / extreme / forward / the goal / the road / the path / the tree / the book / DISCIPLESHIP / higher studies / higher education / synthesis / justice and the Law / judgement and discernment / righteousness / mercy / heroism / benevolence / providence / inclusiveness / lavishness / abundance / freedom / protection / confidence / optimism / the “ultimate truth” / belief / trust / faith / what is Baroque / pomposity / quantity and prosperity and growth : all that is bigger, better, higher…Etc.
The SAGITTARIUS color is Navy Blue. The SAGITTARIUS animal is THE HORSE, also, somewhat, the DOG. The element is FIRE. It works in union with the Signs of ARIES and LEO. The number is SEVEN and NINE.
Now you are with me.
Some key words related to CAPRICORN : stability / solidity / structure / prudence / perseverance / resilience (“resilient”, Latin : leaping back !) / old age / longevity / bones and the skeleton, the spine, ( hence, the BACK
/ Ancestry and Antiquity / the PAST / tradition / memories / attachment / solitariness / privacy / seclusion / walls / limitation / sparsity / infertility / severity / stoicism / austerity / trial / cold and asceticism / purity / honesty / self-control / perfection / MASTERSHIP and INITIATION / balance / respect / honor / discretion / restraint and restriction / bareness / what is Minimalism / quality / exclusiveness / TIME ( this is the answer to the BIG BROTHER House mystery Clocks ! ) / the NORTH / the mountain / the top / the summit / the rock / the stone ,…Etc.
The Pope Saturn hat
You can see that it is quite REVERSE to SAGITTARIUS somewhat. ( As, in ASTROLOGY, all succeeding signs display a kind of REVERSE quality to each previous signs ).
The CAPRICORN color is Grey, like in Lead or Silver, and also White, bearing in mind that White plus Black make Grey. The CAPRICORN animal is THE GOAT. The element is EARTH. It relies upon the Signs of TAURUS and VIRGO. The number is EIGHT and TEN.
This is only just touching. This “X” in a CUBE, can also be seen as a Summit, a Top, a Peak, such as the Top of a Pyramid. A place of INITIATION. And why the folded arms , it means ten or the great “X”, and these folded arms are also a simplified representation of an INITIATIC gesture, well known in Esoteric Schools.
Yin and Yang according to Time
The YIN and YANG symbol is there because it is an Alliance, or MARRIAGE, ( very LIBRA ) between the masculine and the feminine. It is very CHINESE and JAPANESE – incidentally, when in CAPRICORN, the solar HOUSE X is in LIBRA – Scales, Balance, Equilibrium, etc. It is also very ISLAMIC, as one cannot help to notice the shape of the DOMES, like the woman Breast, and of the MINARETS, or erected tall Towers, like the man Phallus.

The women are generally in Black, when the men are generally in White. The ARABS have inherited the reputation of being of all time the best ARCHITECTS in the World. No wonder the FREEMASONS call their “God”, the GREAT ARCHITECT of the universe. ( something to do with the legendary Temple of Salomon, of course ). And their Temple floors are a display of Black and White slabs, like in most Western Cathedrals and Churches, Monasteries and High Schools, Town Halls,…etc, “comme par hasard”. And you do remember the Medieval stories recounting epic struggles between Black Knights and White Knights. ( what is the color of the Chess Board ?! ). See the King ARTHUR stories, and more recently, THE LORD OF THE RINGS stories, and of course, HARRY POTTER; there is always a “White” ( light, innocent, pure, protected, chosen, benevolent ) against a “Black”, ( dark, ugly, cursed, evil, rejected, destructive ) somehow. We are still served with these tales that function only on division and separation, ( very GEMINI, see the TAROT Card : THE DEVIL XV ). We do not believe in Heaven and Hell any more, or… do we ?! like that ? Well , not only there are every where to be seen in the MEDIAS since 2005 or so, but they do show an
With the figure EIGHT, one can see the place of PASSAGE, just as well. Notice that this passage indicates as well the meeting of the East with the West, as there are many levels of interpretation.
It is like one CELL that has just divided in order to make TWO new identical CELLS. Some Martial Art technics use this shape in order to induce better “SHI” energy. Here, we can see the Hour Glass again, of course. And every one knows that the CHINESE decided to start the Olympic Games at 8.00 pm. on the 8th of AUGUST ( the eight month of the year in the West ), 2008. The explanation we were given is that the number EIGHT, in CHINA, is quite a sacred and potent number. ( how do they represent this number in their Calligraphy ? Is not this number 8 from an Arabic origin ?! Talking about numbers, in Numerology, B, K, T, are important because any two of them make FOUR, ( FOUR is EARTH : as TAURUS / VIRGO / CAP. We recognize this in the name of Tony Blair ) ; D, M, V, are FOUR letters. H, Q, Z, are EIGHT letters. Interestingly, if you add up that way the letters of the name : David Cameron, you find 55 which is TEN. ( a conservative all right ). And, he was born on the 9th of October 1966, a date which adds up to : 41 or 104, alternatively. corresponds to the element
It works like this :
A B C D E F G H I
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
J K L M N O P Q R
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
S T U V W X Y Z
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Now, the two drawings below show how, taking SCORPIO / TAURUS and SAGITTARIUS / GEMINI as examples, the Periods of 90 years succeed each other, and this is not quite Mathematical :
As when one Period declines and ends, another, simultaneously somewhat, starts and grows. It is the same as life, isn’t it ? When our old people decline and die, our young people are growing.
Alternatively, one can see it like this :
What is the decline of a Period ? When things go OTP, ( Over The Top, too much, too extreme ). And this related to what the actual Sign represents. For example, OTP LIBRA, an AIR sign ruled by VENUS, would be related to appearances, elegance, romance, ladies, MARRIAGE, refinement, sophistication, politeness, graciousness and the like. OTP SCORPIO, with his traditional Ruler, MARS, the God of WAR, and his more recent Ruler, PLUTO, the God of the underworld, would be related to war, conflict, death, and destruction, also psychological manipulation, Esotericism, Spiritualism, espionage and undercover work, investigational efforts, ( like in the books of Agatha Christie ! ), etc. When one knows that GERMANY is ARIES and RUSSIA is SCORPIO, it leaves you with food for thoughts.( how did THE SECOND WORLD WAR ended, and thanks to who and why and how…?! ). OTP SAGITTARIUS, with his Ruler, the huge JUPITER, would be related to growth, expansion, impulsion, INDULGENCE, liberty, ( in the sense of “taking too much liberty” ), grandeur, confidence, optimism, travel, transport, philosophy, belief, religion, idealism. And the WEST because AMERICA is so Western.
In that perspective, the best Policy of OBAMA will be to back out, in a humble way. And to work towards Peace and RECONCILIATION in a very eloquent but diplomatic way. Some women will play an important part during his Presidency.
What about the Future ? Well, the Future promises to be very interesting, because when the austere and purifying CAPRICORN / CANCER Period will end, around 2100 onwards ( which, remember, is about to take place now in the context of the AQUARIUS Era, and not in the context of the PISCES Era, because the later is gone now ). So expect something unusually airy, detached, delicate, light. and fraternal, universal, and not confusing, painful, misleading, emotional, psychological, any more )…
…. We shall move into a new AQUARIUS / LEO Period in the context of the grand AQUARIUS Era.
This is why I say that we shall…fly !
So let me try to describe how TIME will be during this AQUARIUS / LEO Period :
Multidimensional, very spacious (!) that’s for sure, Cosmic, Virtual, light ( in both sense of the word ), bright, ( in both sense of the word ), high, impartial, detached, Ethereal, Parallel, for ever changeable, randomnic, ( as in “random-access” ), crazy, ( in the best sense of the word ), constantly re-inventive…Etc.
It will be about the end of the illusion of the mind. That is the end of the movement, the movement that is linear and logic and two dimensional. The movement that says : from this to that, or that says : you and me, them and us, this and me. The end of separation., division, and dichotomy.
We shall experience an immense CO-CREATIVE PHENOMENA OF THE ETERNAL NOW.
Worlds within worlds, spontaneously, simultaneously, in perfect synchronicity, one and all at the same time, instantaneously, multiple and single.
POUF ! ( see the amazing books of JANE ROBERTS, where “SETH speaks”, for more inspirational guidance. And also, in the domain of ASTROLOGY, the very good book of E. ALAN MEECE : “Horoscope For The New Millennium” ).
I leave you with these very lofty thoughts.
Take your TIME to recover.
