911 Predictive Programming
Is predictive programming real? Or is it an example of confirmation bias, selection bias, pareidolia, or apophenia as discussed page № 104. Terminology that thoroughly annoys me. The evidence that Hollywood effectively announced the attack on the World Trade Center in films and cartoons well before it actually happened is positively overwhelming. Judge for yourself by following this link to 9/11 predictive programming videos on YouTube. The following one is particularly interesting. As of this writing on October 13, 2019 it has 4,525,306 views. I think you should watch this one.
The movie Back to the Future was released July 3, 1985. It is utterly preposterous to suggest that the producers and writers of this “Back to the Future” movie knew exactly what would happen on September 11, 2001, over 16 years later.
Oh, my dear friend. How can I walk you to the edge of the abyss, if you are unwilling to make these first steps? As I state on my homepage and on many other pages, the progeny of Jove are consummate, brilliant planners. That these buildings were erected just to be destroyed on the foreordained date of September 11, 2001, is beyond question. The section entitled The Emergency Telephone Number 911 on page № 7. The real Horror of September 11, 2001 (9/11) Domestic Terrorist Attack is the Truth, begins as follows:
In early 1967 while NASA was busy preparing to fake landing on the moon, “The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society” report was released which included the recommendation for what became known as the national emergency telephone number 911. I would give anything if I could make a single reader realize that the September 11, 2001 operation was planned this long ago. For if you realize that the progeny of Jove are faking the moon landing and planning 9/11 at the same time, then you understand the forces arrayed against us.
This paragraph was written long before I found this video. None of this surprises me. They broke ground on the World Trade Center on August 5, 1966, which in and of itself is a symbolic date. But then they did what they are always want to do.
They signed it
Their compulsion to sign their work, especially something as significant as this, is key to understanding them. I talk about this in the section entitled Tracking the Progeny of Jove through Time on page № 8. The Progeny of Jove (think Knights Templar, Freemasons, and the European Illuminati). Counting the rooftops, there were 322 floors at the World Trade Center before it was destroyed on 9/11. I don’t think they expected anyone to notice this.
The 7 Towers in New York City, are self explanatory:
World Trade Center 1: North Tower of Twin Towers – Rooftop was 111th level
World Trade Center 2: South Tower of Twin Towers – Rooftop was 111th level
World Trade Center 3: Rooftop was 23rd level
World Trade Center 4: Rooftop was 10th level
World Trade Center 5: Rooftop was 10th level
World Trade Center 6: Rooftop was 9th level
World Trade Center 7: Rooftop was 48th level
….thus, there were 322 symbolic levels, over 7 Towers, ‘destroyed by a Binladen’ (the official fiction).
This amounts to an Illuminati signature. Then they changed the name to “One World Trade Center,” (as in one-world government) which drew surprisingly little comment from the public. Everyone is so afraid to speak the truth about 9/11, everyone that is, except the families of the dead. I tell you of a truth we are all in a deep hypnotic state and believe whatever we are told to believe.
The facade of the One World Trade Center is shouting 666 to the entire world, but no one hears. For a discussion of this, see the section entitled 322 and Corporate Logos on page № 75. Skull and Bones 322.
Given the brazen nature of the 9/11 domestic terrorist attack, it should not surprise anyone that whoever was responsible for perpetuating the attack should announce their intent to do so ahead of time. What interests me is that the “predictive programming” for September 23, 2017 was for the end of the world. There’s a big difference.
923 Predictive Programming
That the number 923 (or the corresponding date of September 23) is mentioned in the context of doomsday in film after Hollywood film is not a matter for debate. Nor can there be any doubt whatsoever that 923 is a reference to September 23. The only question is, What year? Revelation 12:1-2 suggests that 923 is a reference to September 23, 2017, which is entirely consistent with the section entitled A Very Public Countdown to 2017 on page № 19. The End Time (or “When shall these things be?”).
But 2017 has come and gone. That leaves speculation as to the year an open question and furthermore suggests that there exist what I refer to as the third level of date obfuscation (2012-2013 and 2017-2018 being the first two levels), one that perhaps only a handful of people I call The Nine know. Though here I must add in all honesty and humility that I now believe I know the year, and it is not far off.
Someone in Hollywood wants us to see the number 923 on television and the big screen and to associate this date with the end of the world. Why?
Most times the use of 923 is what can only be described as conspicuous, none more so than in the following clip from a 1986 cult film classic entitled Little Shop of Horrors.
Little Shop of Horrors, 1986
We note in passing that 2017 is not “an early year in a decade.” (This I believe to be an open acknowledgment of what I refer to as the third level of date obfuscation.) The still below is from the Walt Disney movie Tomorrowland, which is discussed in the next section. It is a countdown clock that figures very prominently in the movie. There are more 923 countdown clocks in other Hollywood films. This is not the only one, though I would argue that it is by far the most important one.
923 is often used in a countdown clock to suggest something Apocalyptic is about to happen.
Lost (TV series), 2010
Evan Almighty, 2007
The implications of 923 “predictive programming” if indeed in reference to “a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars” discussed below are mind-boggling. Such use of 923 by Hollywood would confirm that the progeny of Jove is intimately connected to the author of the Book of Revelation. This is exactly what I argue on page № 66. Book of Revelation.
It may seem like a stretch of the imagination, but September 23, 2017, is best thought of as the fireworks finale for a 900-year countdown that began with the founding of the Knights Templar in 1118 AD, only like everything else the progeny of Jove do, it was hidden (behind the glare of the Sun) and could not be seen with the naked eye. How appropriate! You may be inclined to think I am kidding. I am not. I am deadly serious.
As a side note, I should mention that the assumption that the actors involved know what 923 means is unwarranted. I don’t care how cool they seem (including rap star 50 Cent, who is discussed in the next section), or how informed they pretend to be. I can pretty much guarantee you that the actors, set designers, and directors who have unwittingly participated in 923 “predictive programming” are clueless. They have no idea whatsoever what it means. Neither do any of the toy designers, toy department managers, or retail salespeople have any idea what all the unicorns mean as discussed in the Ubiquitous Unicorns section of page № 16. Intentional Dumbing Down of the Masses.
923 predictive programming is indeed ubiquitous. Variants of 923 include 329 (923 backward), 239, 932 and to a much less extent 236, the latter presumably having an upside-down 9 at the end. Here is an example using 329 from an unknown movie (look to the left of the bus driver’s head at the start of the clip) discussed in the next section. There is a very import example of 239 in the next section.
Things start to get a little ridiculous when 362 is included in 923 predictive programming, which is often done and explains why I had to waste my precious time to develop my own movie clips so as to exclude them.
The Tomorrowland movie is clearly an important example of 923 predictive programming. In fact, the more I study it the more I am utterly convinced that it is as important as the Georgia Guidestones in the sense that it so obviously announces to anyone listening that the axial tilt (or the “day of the Lord” for Christians) is immanent.
The most important rule for what has become popularly known as “predictive programming” is that the number not be conspicuously displayed. Tomorrowland breaks this rule not once, but twice, in effect announcing the importance of the movie to those in the know.
The above still from the beginning of the movie is well known and often included in 923 predictive programming YouTube videos. What everyone misses though is the significance of the 630 in front of the 923. Admittedly, it took me a long time to see it. 63092300 seconds is 730 days or two years.
So there you have it, September 23, 2017 (adding two years to the movie’s carefully chosen release date of May 22, 2015). In fact, I’m going to cross the line here a little and tell you that the release date for this movie was very, very carefully chosen. And what does the movie have to say about this rather conspicuous display of a September 23, 2017 countdown clock?
Allow me my moment to speak not only to the progeny of Jove in their latest, grotesque incarnations as the European Illuminati, the CIA, and finally the Unnamed Entity well hidden behind need-to-know clearances, I know that I am playing with fire. I derive my strength from Matthew 16:25. But in this moment of self-realization, methinks The Nine will save my ass if it comes to that, for I am saying what they cannot.
The second time Tomorrowland breaks this rule stunned me when I first saw it. This date is displayed in the bottom left corner of the screen for a total of 49 seconds.
For someone familiar with the predictive programming phenomenon, this is crying out for attention. Someone was very intent on this date not being overlooked.
It starts ar 0:16:11 and lasts until precisely 0:17:00 when in that same exact second these two screens appear in the time it takes to say “Hit it!”.
In what I can only describe as a Stanley Kubrick moment, the lighting used to film this scene makes the young girl’s face seem almost ghostly. When you are crafting a once-in-a-lifetime message to as many as 144,000 people, details such as this are important.
Here again, special lighting is used to deliver the message.
So there you have it; 2003/03/09 (which is notably in an unusual date format) from which we can safely (or rather sanely) derive 923 and 17 or September 23, 2017, the date of the asterism described in the Book of Revelation. And what is the picture presented to us? Why that’s a thermonuclear explosion, of course, the end of the world after which there will be plenty of real estate available. The clouds of smoke at ground level remind me of the Tomorrowland poster hanging in my hallway.
This is how the progeny of Jove operate. Much like the asterism on September 23, 2017, which was well hidden behind the light of the sun, the message is well hidden in a Hollywood film.
What is Tomorrowland?
It is not a reference to the Tomorrowland attractions at Walt Disney theme parks. That much I can assure you.
In short, this movie is all about the end of the world. “Tomorrowland” is what happens after over seven billion people are either buried in mud or become fish food.
Tomorrowland is the next world.
The purpose of this section is to demonstrate the level of subtlety encoded into the Tomorrowland movie. This movie was made to send a message to everyone waiting to be flown to the Denver International Airport, where they expect to be “In Da Club” of a very select group of people who think they are going to survive the coming axial tilt. They would recognize it as such because of the movie name and the fact that it was made by The Walt Disney “Company”, which is to movie making what NASA is to science, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the progeny of Jove.
Tomorrowland Contains an Important Message to the 144,000 in the Book of Revelation
But let me say this. Let us assume there are in fact in fact 144,000 designated survivors. How else are the progeny of Jove going to communicate with them? These people do not put anything in writing. They did in their early years.
One of the main themes in the movie is how special a person must be to be invited to Tomorrowland. The reason why they must do this is to quell any anxious or rebellious individuals who may otherwise be inclined to speak out in protest.
What follows is an analysis of the heart of the Tomorrowland movie which is at precisely 54:00 minutes into the movie. I know this is the heart of the movie because I know why the movie was made and 54 is one of the nine sacred numbers which constitute and important part of what can only be described as the religion of the progeny of Jove.
I’m going to get straight to the point and tell you what this movie is about. Tens of thousands of people (I would not be the least bit surprised if the number were 144,000) are waiting to be contacted to begin their journey to Denver, Colorado. Many if not most of them expected something to happen in 2012-2013. It didn’t. This movie was released on May 22, 2015 to reassure everyone. It was made to send them a message to be patient, that the people supposedly in control aren’t sure what is happening either (or rather why nothing happened), and that they should be confident and think about the future.
My Analysis of the Tomorrowland Message
Across the top of the original, full-sized five-foot by seven-foot poster I own for the Tomorrowland movie is written in Spanish (because I bought the poster from a movie theatre in Ecuador) “IMAGINA UN LUGAR DONDE TODAS ES POSIBLE,” which translated means “Imagine a place where everything is possible.” And of course, most of us have been to Tomorrowland at one of the Walt Disney theme parks.
None of these evoke images of the end of the world unless you look closer. For example, take a closer look at the center of my poster. The Eiffel Tower was built to celebrate the 100th year of the French Revolution, a bloodbath that announced the rise of the European Illuminati.
What is that, really? It’s got nothing whatsoever to do with the movie. If you ask me, it looks like something catastrophic is happening to Paris.
Do me a favor. Stop now and watch the entire movie. Better yet, purchase a copy from Amazon Prime Video or YouTube. You are going to want to watch it more than once. Not a very likely place to be discussing the Apocalypse, right? Well, you may be surprised by the end of this section. Immediately before displaying the 923 countdown clock, the main actor George Clooney says “This is a story about the future, and the future can be scary.”
The remainder of this section was contributed by a remarkable individual who is working along the same lines as me and prefers to be known by the pseudonym Alder Av Grunn. I can tell you this much about him. He is a highly respectable individual with a genius IQ. Alder and I correspond on a regular basis.
Alder Av Grunn
Unlike me, Alder has expressed concern that revealing too much of the truth could be dangerous. I have no death wish. I just trust God to care for me. The progeny of Jove are too busy right now to pay attention to an obscure website such as mine. Beyond that, I suffer from the delusion that I was given a message to deliver to them and that so long as I remain true to that mission everything will be revealed to me. And so this website has become my life, my raison d’être. Nobody understands better than me how powerful these people are, how easily they could snuff out my existence. But methinks if they are conscious of me, and there is every indication that they are, that I amuse them. Nevertheless, there is a reason why I quote Virgil at the top of my homepage when he pleads “Ah! might such length of days to me be given.”
Alder is fully aware of my fascination with this movie. So he sent me a link to the follow Tomorrowland movie clip and said “Tomorrowland scene. 0:13 and 0:36, playing on the radio ‘the end is coming, whatcha gonna do’.”
Not giving it much thought (always a mistake with Alder), I wrote back and tersely said “I don’t hear this, Alder. Nor can I find similar lyrics searching on the Internet. Did I miss something?” to which he patiently responded
The song is playing in the background, on the radio in the truck they are riding in. Listen during the pauses in the character monologs. I double checked the link I sent and played it again with headphones. It is there in the time slots listed.
It is an interesting song in that the lyrics are not posted, not that I can find, and in a music track list of the movie, it is listed but it is the only song they wont let you preview. It is not available for sale or other.
The song is called “The End is Coming” by Lesley McDaniel.
It also shows up in the subtitles during the scene “the end is coming, whatcha gonna do…” when played on the TV.
Out of respect for Alder, I decided to try a little harder.
The first thing I did was to get a screenshot of the lyrics. This took me hours. All times are precise. Starting at 53:20 minutes into the movie they play in the background until 53:45, but the only time you here all of the lyrics is the first time they are played from 53:20 to 53:23.
The lyrics are “The end is coming and you got to get out alive. The end is coming, what you gonna do?” That’s it. That’s the entire song. Little weird, huh? You hear “coming” a few more times, but never in a full sentence.
First off, let’s get something straight. “The End is Coming” is a fictitious song. It does not exist in reality. It is a message, nothing else.
So what then are these music credits?
A message. Nothing else.
The song doesn’t exist on Walt Disney’s soundtrack either, but I’m glad I checked because there are 24 songs on the soundtrack and the principle theme song is precisely 54 seconds long leaving no doubt what this movie is really about.
If the “Why me?” at precisely 54:00 minutes into the movie and a 54-second theme song, or the fact that the movie cost $330,000,00 dollars to produce and therefore was .54545454545454 repeating over the budget of $180,000,000 doesn’t peak your interests, let me leave you with one last thought.
There is only one use of a two-line capitalized subtitle in the entire movie. It commands attention. Now, why would you bother doing this for 25 seconds of inaudible lyrics to a non-existent song?
The answer to the question, “Why me?” is “Because you’re special.”
The 25th song would be “The End is coming” which corresponds to the 25 seconds these lyrics are played in the movie. But there’s nothing after 24. There never is. Everything just starts over.
Thank you, Alder. If I had a pin I would give it to you. But then again, in their own words, they’re “all gonna die” [01:39:00 but my “future-predicting machine”]. You’re special though. I know that.
A Warning to African-Americans (or 50 Cent gets Deported)
I want to be perfectly blunt about something. Trusting in God as my protector and overlooking the incredible size of his biceps, if 50 Cent were standing in front of me, I would tell him the same.
The progeny of Jove intend to rid the world of blacks.
Or I could say, There are no blacks in Tomorrowland, referring to the next world, not the movie (though it is indeed a very “white” movie). And me saying so doesn’t make me prejudice any more than a weatherman or meteorologist is wet simply for reporting on an approaching storm. No one more so than 50 Cent could validate everything I say in this section because he must have been perplexed as hell making the following In Da Club music video.
Thanks to the artist Curtis James Jackson III (50 Cent). As a side note, I hated Rap music (because it wasn’t music) until 50 Cent and Eminem exploded onto the scene with 8 Mile back in 2002. I’ve been listening to 8 Mile ever since, over and over and over again (at least in part because I hold both of my parents in the same low regard as Eminem). I only just discovered In Da Club while writing the following section on Tomorrowland. I can’t get enough of it..
What I am about to reveal to you in this section is analogous to what barelyHuman11 says in the BACK TO THE FUTURE predicts 9/11 YouTube video discussed above. The Back to the Future movie was released on July 3, 1985, more than 16 years before the 9/11 domestic terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Similarly, the In Da Club song was released in January of 2003, some 12 years before the release of the Tomorrowland movie. If you are not living such a fast-paced life that you cannot stop long enough to hear what the two of us are saying, then perhaps you will start to appreciate the fact that the progeny of Jove are what I like to call “consummate, brilliant planners.” The forces arrayed against us are unimaginably strong. We are nothing to them, mere dead men walking.
What makes me associate In Da Club with the Tomorrowland movie? Is this an extreme case of confirmation bias, selection bias, apophenia, or pareidolia as discussed on page № 104. Terminology that thoroughly annoys me? Or in common parlance, am I batshit crazy? Well, this is always the question now, isn’t it? That is why I strive to thoroughly document everything I say.

Revelation 12:1-2 on September 23, 2017 (923)
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
SPECIAL NOTE: Please read page № 66. Book of Revelation before proceeding, not because I want to expose you to something Christian. Quite the contrary, the Book of Revelation is NOT Christian. It was written by the progeny of Jove. I explain this on the Book of Revelation page. It is because of this that I believe Revelation 12:1-2 really does refer to the constellation Virgo on September 23, 2017. They are the ONLY ones who could have known about this configuration of the stars and planets two thousand years into the future.
It is because of the reference to this alignment of stars and planets in the constellation Virgo that 2017 was, at least publicly, the “zero year” for the progeny of Jove is 2017. This subject is discussed in great detail in the section entitled A Very Public Countdown to 2017 of page № 19. The End Time (or “When shall these things be?”).
When I think of Revelation 12:1-3 and September 23, 2017, I am reminded of John 8:45, “And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” It’s just too spectacular for most people to believe. On the Revelation 12 sign prophecy Wikipedia page we read, “On April 7, 2011, William Tapley’s [YouTube] channel ThirdEagleBooks published the first video about the alignment entitled ‘Stellarium’ giving the 2017 date of the great sign and explaining how the planetary alignment that year matched the text of Revelation 12 better than a 2011 alignments, which he said three earlier videos from other people had mentioned.” [bold-red emphasis added] My only interest is in who made these “three earlier videos.” Who planted this idea in Tapley’s head? Because William Tapley is the perfect frontman if you wanted intelligent people to lightly dismiss what is perhaps the single most important end-time marker as fanatical hysteria, which is pretty much exactly what happened. I hate to dignify this ruse, but alas I am German and feel compelled to provide the reader with the opportunity to watch this video for the sake of completeness. What I find utterly bizarre is that Wikipedia captured this level of detail about how this subject came to the public’s attention. From where I stand, this is further proof that Wikipedia is a tool of the progeny of Jove.
The progeny of Jove muddied the waters with this Catholic lunatic, but the 923 countdown clock so prominently displayed in the movie Tomorrowland makes it clear that their Revelation 12:1-2 is indeed is a reference to this highly unique alignment of stars and planets in the constellation Virgo on September 23, 2017. This is precisely why it is so critical that the reader understands that the Book of Revelation was written by the progeny of Jove and planted in the Christian Bible in exactly the same manner as the Book of Daniel was planted in the Jewish Tanakh. If you don’t understand and believe this with your whole heart you cannot see what is happening here. The progeny of Jove used our sacred books to communicate to their own future generations.
We’ll never know who published those three (3) videos, but they claimed the prophecy would be fulfilled on the 29th of September, not the 23rd, which I find more than a little interesting. I honestly think this may have been the very first use of 329 in what has become to be known as “predictive programming.” 329 is the reverse of 923.
But let me be perfectly clear about something. This was not “prophesy” (i.e. supernatural divining or a “revelation” from God to whoever wrote the Book of Revelation). Personally, I think it is preposterous to believe the ancients did not have advanced optics. They survived the last world and were in use by whoever designed the Maya Long Count calendar. And they were “re-invented” just in time so that we would be at Solar Cycle 24 now, but that is a different subject discuss on page № 76. Apostolic 12, End Time 24, Clocks, and the Fibonacci 60 Digit Repeat Cycle.
The graphics in the following video are the best available and the preaching is kept to a minimum. You should watch this video as an overview of the subject before continuing. As of this writing, it has 1,386,531 views. I apologize in advance for the mindless preaching.
I believe the progeny of Jove searched the heavens for a sign to include in the Book of Revelation. It was perfectly natural for them to look for something on September 23, 2017. This is the Autumnal Equinox. The solstices and equinoxes are of immeasurable importance to the ancients. How elated they must been to have found the “woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.”
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
The child is Jupiter. Jupiter is the celestial doomsday clock. It is Jupiter that has been counting down the years to the next axial tilt. Plato is very specific in telling us that Jupiter is the timepiece of the ancients. He very well may have played a part in searching out and discovering this “sign” for their brothers who would be living in the end times, though I suspect it was decided upon several hundred years before Plato. What cannot be denied though is that Plato must have been thinking about the retrograde motion of Jupiter in the constellation Virgo in the months prior to September 23, 2017 (his distant future) when he writes at the end of the discourse on time in Timaeus:
Mankind, with hardly an exception, have not remarked the periods of the other stars, and they have no name for them, and do not measure them against one another by the help of number, and hence they can scarcely be said to know that their wanderings, being infinite in number and admirable for their variety, make up time. And yet there is no difficulty in seeing that the perfect number of time fulfils the perfect year when all the eight revolutions, having their relative degrees of swiftness, are accomplished together and attain their completion at the same time, measured by the rotation of the same and equally moving. After this manner, and for these reasons, came into being such of the stars as in their heavenly progress received reversals of motion, to the end that the created heaven might imitate the eternal nature, and be as like as possible to the perfect and intelligible animal.
See Plato on the Nature of Time for a detailed discussion. According to Walter Cruttenden in hisThe Great Year documentary, “Although today the ages are marked by the Vernal Equinox, the ancients used the Autumnal Equinox as the hour hand of the ages.” I am confident that they started looking for a “sign” in the heavens on September 22, 2017 (the precise date of the Autumnal Equinox that year) and found the “woman clothed with the sun…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” And then, because the Autumnal Equinox is just as often on September 23, advanced the date by one day so that “moon [is] under her feet.” I can say with great confidence that they have been waiting for this sign to appear in the heavens for well over 2,000 years. This is why I characterize it as their fireworks finale. Hollywood was used as past of this celebration, but precious few of them had any idea what it meant. Walt Disney was one of them. Watch his Tomorrowland movie if you want to get some idea what this countdown is all about. It is all about the future of mankind. The only problem is that you and me did not get invitations to this party.
Now, if you are anything like me, all sorts of red flares are going up. I had my doubts, too, which is why I started this section by quoting John 8:45, “And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” It’s hard to believe. I believe now, though at first I had to work through some objections discussed in the following sections.
Some Objections Answered
Sometimes the debunkers need to be debunked. At least, I had to resolve these issue for myself. And I say unapologetically, knowing how advanced the progeny of Jove is compared to their contemporaries in any age, that the “Co Prophet of the End Times” got this one right. It makes me think of the movie Conspiracy Theory starring Mel Gibson. Everything I know about the progeny of Jove tells me this has their mark on it. It’s their style. It’s the way they operate, which also means it is their Crown Jewel of the Book of Revelation, which they authored.
Virgo was not a constellation when the New Testament was written
The following quote is from a National Geographic article entitled WHY IT’S UNLIKELY THE WORLD WILL END ON SEPTEMBER 23 (more crying wolf).
This year’s alignment doesn’t seem particularly unusual, says Colgate University emeritus professor Anthony Aveni, who specialises in the study of astronomical practices in the ancient world. What’s more, Virgo wasn’t incorporated into Hebrew astronomy until after the New Testament was written, he notes.
Yet we find the following in the Wikipedia article on Virgo.
MythologyAccording to the Babylonian Mul.Apin, which dates from 1000–686 BC, this constellation was known as “The Furrow”, representing the goddess Shala and her ear of grain. One star in this constellation, Spica, retains this tradition as it is Latin for “ear of grain”, one of the major products of the Mesopotamian furrow. For this reason the constellation became associated with fertility. According to Gavin White the figure of Virgo corresponds to two Babylonian constellations: the “Furrow” in the eastern sector of Virgo and the “Frond of Erua” in the western sector. The Frond of Erua was depicted as a goddess holding a palm-frond – a motif that still occasionally appears in much later depictions of Virgo.
This constellation has always been depicted as a woman and, although assigned many different roles, has been associated especially with the tension between fertility and beauty. The Babylonians associated this constellation with the goddess Ishtar, also known under the name of Ashtoreth or Astarte. The Archaic Greeks associated Virgo with their goddess of wheat and agriculture, Demeter, who is the mother of Persephone or Proserpina and the association persisted through the Classical period. The Romans associated it with their goddess Ceres (Roman mythology). Alternatively, she was sometimes identified as the virgin goddess Iustitia or Astraea, holding the scales of justice in her hand (that now are separated as the constellation Libra).
Another Greek myth from later, Classical times, identifies Virgo as Erigone, the daughter of Icarius of Athens. Icarius, who had been favoured by Dionysus and was killed by his shepherds while they were intoxicated after which Erigone hanged herself in grief; in versions of this myth, Dionysus is said to have placed the father and daughter in the stars as Boötes and Virgo respectively.
During the Middle Ages, Virgo sometimes was associated with the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The pattern is clear; this constellation has always represented a woman. Revelation 12 does not say “Virgo.” It says “a woman.”
How many stars are in the constellation Leo?
Before discussing Revelation 12:1-3 it is necessary to address an objection many “educated” people made to the belief that September 23, 2017 was a realization of these scriptures. They said the constellation Leo has more than nine stars, which is most certainly true from a modern perspective, but traditionally, it has only nine. Moreover, eight of these nine main stars also are the brightest in the constellation (i.e. the easiest seen by the naked eye). The only one that isn’t is Mu Leonis, which is historically known as Ras Elased Borealis, which means “the northern (star) of the lion’s head.” These nine traditional stars form two easily recognizable groups. Each of these two groups include one of the two brightest stars in the constellation. The so-called “sickle” (or backwards question mark) includes Regulus, the “Heart of the Lion” and the triangle that forms the hind end of the line includes Denebola, the “Tail of the Lion.” All of the other “extra” stars included in modern renditions of the constellation Leo are outside of these two traditional groups which makes them difficult to recognize as part of the constellation. Here are some traditional renditions of the constellation Leo. All have only nine stars.
On September 23, 2017, these nine traditional stars combined with the three planets Venus, Mars (very faint), and Mercury in the constellation to form a “crown of twelve stars.” Here is how the constellation Leo looked on September 23, 2017:
It is noteworthy also that this traditional view of the constellation Leo has the same profile as the Sphinx. I think it is disingenuous to dismiss this formation as nonsensical because more modern renditions of the constellation include as many as 17 to 19 stars. This objection defies both common usage and visual acuity, as most of these extra stars are also fainter and therefore harder to see.
It’s happened before
The website earthsky.org published the following article on September 23, 2017
This article is a little more balanced than the National Geographic one, but I still loathe the smugness of mainstream scientists. The following article claims to have found four other occurrences of this alignment in the past 1,000 years. However, in each of those examples, one or more of the planets in the CROWN (typically worn on top of the head) is not above the top of Virgo’s head as evidenced by his own pictures. I have independently verified this discrepancy using SkiSafari 5 Pro, as shown in the following pictures:
Whereas on September 23, 2017, Menus, Mars, and Mercury are evenly spaced within the constellation Leo. Notice also the position of the Sun in two on two of the above dates. It is sometimes said that Virgo is not clothed in the Sun on September 23, 2017. Yet the Sun is positioned in exactly the place where a Roman toga drapes over the shoulder of a man or woman. Then there is the moon. On none of the above dates does it appear directly next to the feet of the woman.
Confirmation bias works in both directions. What we have in Christopher M. Graney’s “debunking” of the September 23, 2017 alignment is someone rushing to write his conclusion.
As it is, watching the heavens for signs of what is to come is a waste of time. And it is doubly a waste of time because “signs in the sky” appeal, for some reason, to all sorts of people out there — all of whom can use Stellarium to find this or that momentous “sign” signifying whatever they want to signify.
And that is why astronomers ignore the seemingly momentous celestial arrangement of September 23, 2017, and talk instead about black holes or whatnot.
Well, I did, Mr. Graney, and I (one of your “all sorts of people”) found your analysis wanting. As a matter of fact, I think you are pompous and arrogant.
How can the date be so exact?
This was my own objection. I am sold on the fact that Revelation 12:1-3 refers to September 23, 2017. The only question I had is after being in retrograde for nine months (i.e. not moving from our perspective), who is to say the birth of the child (Jupiter) was born on this precise date. The answer to this objection is found in the movement of the moon.
