Silence symbolism

Standard

Silence symbolises the inability of Monarch slaves to speak or act of their own free will, since they are possessed by demons that become their alter personas and control every aspect of their lives (see Monarch slaves and Metals and Jewels )

The mascot/identifier of Silence is the Hand to the lips or Finger to the lips ‘Shhh… signal’, which is the hand sign for demonic possession, symbolising victims can’t speak/are spiritually bound/silent.

Let’s take a look at some of them:

Time Travel

Standard

Monarch slaves are used to access information stored in the universe, which is known as ‘time travel’ (see Monarch slaves).

Slaves retrieve the Akashic records (a term coined in the late 1800s from akasha or ākāśa, the Sanskrit word for ‘sky’, ‘space’, ‘luminous’, or ‘æther’), a compendium of thoughts, events, and emotions believed by Theosophists to be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the astral plane; a life force recording both the past and future of human thought and action.

The universe keeps a record of everything, and that is how the Law of Karma is applied.

Alice A. Bailey wrote in her book Light of the Soul on The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali – Book 3 – Union Achieved and Its Results:

“The akashic record is like an immense photographic film, registering all the desires and earth experiences of our planet. Those who perceive it will see pictured thereon: The life experiences of every human being since time began, the reactions to experience of the entire animal kingdom, the aggregation of the thought-forms of a karmic nature (based on desire) of every human unit throughout time. Herein lies the great deception of the records. Only a trained occultist can distinguish between actual experience and those astral pictures created by imagination and keen desire.”

Surveillance in the present as well as gaining whatever insight may be gleaned about the past and future is coveted information. The psychopomp — Yutu or Jade Rabbit, Hermes, Hermanubis, Mercury, Anubis — escorts the slaves; while the goddess or witch facilitates the transit. Ritual sodomy is performed on the slaves to open the pineal gland and facilitate the ‘time travel’.

(see Secrets of Fairytales, Pagan gods, Pagan feasts and Sinister Sites: At Your Service)

Columns/pillars are symbols of time travel, because of the assigned meaning that goes back to ancient times, where heaven and earth are seen as connected by columns, and also transited.

The mascot/identifier of Time Travel is the camera.

A camera is like a time machine in that it captures moments of life that can be looked back on or replayed.

Let’s take a look at celebrity time travellers:

As mentioned above, trains, cars, cable cars, buses, bicycles, baskets, gondolas, whirlwinds, elevators/lifts, phone booths, terrariums… signify dimensional transport vehicles and dimensional containers:

James Corden inside a phone booth, the word ‘hotel’ is cut off so that it reads ‘otel’ ~ Leto, Greek goddess of motherhood and modesty — the goddess that facilitates the transit. The psychopomp is signified by the suitcase, which is Hermes retro (see Sun Gates)

Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, where they travel through time in a phone booth. The tagline reads: Time flies when you’re having fun.

Katy Perry at the 2017 Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, U.S. She is wearing a headdress with the word ‘witness’ stitched on its veil and an eye in place of the letter ‘i’ of the word ~ this symbolises Katy as a Time Traveller; eyes are for seeing and eye witnesses report accounts of what they have seen. The mirror also enforces this symbolism since mirrors reflect images. The spirals signify travelling through time via a portal. Her earrings are arrows — arrows represent the direction or flow of time. In ancient times,  arrow symbols were used to indicate the flow of rivers in maps; water is used as a symbol for time. Note the chandeliers hanging from the mirrors:

Etymology of chandelier:

From French, from Latin candelabrum, from candela (a candle).

Candles are used in witchcraft — time travel is enabled through witchcraft.

 

Dissociation/Fear

Standard

Witchcraft is performed to create Monarch slaves (see Monarch slaves and Duality/Black Mass). Slaves are subjected to intense trauma through Satanic Ritual Abuse, which involves unbearable torture which causes their minds to dissociate and fragment until they become insane. After that, demons are invoked to possess the slave — these demons become the slave’s alter personas.

The colour purple (and its associate colours — maroon, violet, indigo, blue, lavender…) represents magic and mystery, suggestive of shadows, and is also the colour used to symbolise the dissociation of Monarch slaves.

Any shade of purple represents complete dissociation or madness.

Yellow is the colour of fear.

Note the lyrics to The Beatles’ song Yellow Submarine:

We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.

The Beatles holding a yellow submarine. Paul is making the '666' hand sign and John is making the 'devil's horns' sign

The Beatles (John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Richard Starkley (known as Ringo Starr), George Harrison). George and Ringo are holding a yellow submarine. Paul is making the ‘666’ hand sign and John is making the ‘devil’s horns’ sign (see Satanic Hand Signs)

The yellow submarine signifies subconscious fear — Monarch slaves live in a permanent state of terror.

An excerpt from the lyrics:

“You could be a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
Either way I don’t wanna wake up from you
(Turn the lights on).”

‘Lights out’ is slang for bedtime or going to sleep — in this case it means dissociation or madness; therefore, ‘lights on’ would mean to wake up or be free of demonic possession and madness.

Madeline Rae Mason, wearing a skeleton spine necklace

Etymology of skeleton:

From Ancient Greek σκελετός ‎(skeletós, meaning ‘dried up, withered, dried body, parched, mummy‘), from σκελλώ ‎(skellṓ, meaning ‘dry, dry up, make dry, parch’), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)kelh₁– ‎(to parch, wither); compare Greek σκληρός ‘hard’.

The skeleton represents the demons that possess Madeline — demons are dead, zombies, dried up like a mummy.

Balloons symbolise the Monarch slave as a vessel or receptacle to receive the demons that possess them

Etymology of balloon:

(chemistry) A round vessel, usually with a short neck, to hold or receive whatever is distilled; a glass vessel of a spherical form.

Alcoholic beverages such as brandy, whisky, rum or arrack are called spirits and are obtained by distillation of wine — demons are spirits.

Obama, the Joker

Standard

Barack Hussein Obama, America’s 44th president, is a Monarch slave. Obama was enslaved and demonically possessed in Indonesia as a child, and a bronze statue of him holding a Monarch butterfly stands in the nation’s capital; he was groomed to be the United States’ first Black leader:

Bronze statue of a young Barack Obama holding a Monarch butterfly, in Indonesia. Obama, a Monarch slave, was groomed from childhood to be the first Black American president

Bronze statue of a young Barack Obama holding a Monarch butterfly, in Indonesia

Obama’s wife, Michelle, is also a slave (see Monarch slaves). Monarch slaves are dysfunctional demonically possessed lunatics. They are basically puppets who are stripped of their own free will and used to carry out various missions.

Here’s a parody of Obama as the Joker on the cover of Time magazine:

obama joker

In the Tarot, the Joker is a symbol of a Jungian archetype, the Trickster. The Trickster is a mythological character who plays tricks on clueless humanity. They were often malicious, such as the Norse trickster god Loki, and Eshu, the trickster god of the Yoruba of Nigeria. Other tricksters were the fairies (demons) who use their ‘glamour’ or illusion to befuddle mortals. He also appears as the diabolical Mephistopheles who attempts to trick men into selling their souls in a doomed Faustian bargain.

In the Batman films, The Dark Knight is Batman/Bruce Wayne possessed by demons, and the Joker, Batman’s nemesis, is very much like Mephistopheles, who presents terrible moral choices without any chance at victory. In these films, the Joker/Trickster is Satan. Batman’s battle against this foe is in reality Bruce Wayne’s struggle to break free from Monarch programming, and his fight with the evil spirits that live within him and control him (see Symbolism of Superheroes).

Heath Ledger, in this poster for The Dark Knight in which he played the role of the Joker, is holding a Tarot card with a picture of Batman as the Joker. Heath is symbolising the ‘Eye of Horus’ (occult knowledge/hidden wisdom); Batman and the Joker are the same person
