For those of you who arent up on the astronomical terms here is a chart from the wiki on Opposition (astronomy), also please note please pllllllease please note that OPPOSITION is also a term used in every game of chess and it refers to the kings being opposite each other on the checkered board i.e the forces of good (the Light or White or Snow white and the seven planets) opposing the forces of darkness or the black pieces. Opposition (chess).
Here is the Inferior conjunction of Mercury on the 19th of Jan 1917, 3 days before Sauniere actually died. At this point the reality tunnel I would like to suggest to you is as follows. Heath Ledger was born and bred to be sacrificed in a recreation or reenactment of Saunieres death many years later. The time of death was to coincide with certain astronomical events as well and this is why 2008 was picked. Ledger was prepared for his sacrifice by appearing in many goddess worship films and he was mentally prepared by the use of tarot Archetypes. He was mind controlled in order to accomplish something that I would suggest can only be a very dark purpose. he may or may not have been possessed by an entity that forced him to kill himself. this entity may have been inserted into Heath by the use of archetypes and rituals.
His final ritual was the Dark Knight where he plays the Joker (comics), who resonates with John the Baptist in a very straightforward way. The Baptist, baptised his victims in the Jordan and thus you are reborn. The Joker was reborn as the Joker due to his baptism in ACID/chemicals which is the common name for the stargate opening drug LSD.
I will say no more as I have said enough.
