Well I couldn't believe my eyes last night. There I am talking about the Cosmic Coincidence Control Centre a wholly Wilsonian subject in my last post and an unholy coincidence happens to me while reading a book about coincidence.
Lets firstly reel this backwards in time and go back to the ending of http://atlanteanjournal.blogspot.com/2008/03/heath-ledger-and-five-points-of-davinci.html. In this post I ended by quickly mentioning Miley Cyrus. Now I had never heard of Miss Cyrus before the southpark episode about Brittney and the sacrifice for the corn. I only mentioned it because I noticed that Heath Ledger made his big film debut in The Patriot by walking through a corn field.
It was an afterthought that lead me to imply a possible Sirius connection. I then go on to write about Heston and in doing so come across that word Cyrus in the context of a review about a film called The Order a film title that Ledger has also stared in. I then find more Cyrus connections including one which connects the name Cyrus to the Dog Days. Therefore connecting Cyrus with Sirius. I had not expected to see the word Cyrus again soon without deliberately looking for it. I mean what were the odds of accidentally coming across it in the context I did to begin with.
So there I am last night with my copy of Illuminatus by Robert Anton Wilson. I have had a Pdf version of the book for years but never had the patience or eye strength to actually read it. I bought the paperback a few months back and only recently decided to read the tome. On page 59 which is the page I stopped reading and therefore the page I began to read from again I was astounded to come across this.
"Saul Goodman rubbed tired eyes in New York city as dawn crept over the windowsill, and read a memo about Charlemagne and the Courts of the Illuminated; Rebbecca Goodman meanwhile, read how the jealous priests of Bel Marduk betrayed Babylon to the invading armies of Cyrus because their young King, Belshazzar had embraced the love cult of the Goddess Ishtar."
So there you go folks. I had never come across Cyrus before a few days ago. Now it's feckin everywhere I look. Incidentally Saul Goodman is a cop who has been drawn into investigating the Occult nature of a crime. I have also recently found myself investigating possible occult links into a certain famous actors death and his connections to the Goddess Ishtar. In my eyes it was Ledger not Belshazzar who had embraced the Goddess Cult.
