In 2006, the girder cross was removed to St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church on 22 Barclay Street, in Manhattan. While there, the girder set was further modified and trimmed to look more like the Latin cross of Christian tradition.

The Hilton Millennium Hotel was obscured by the twin towers until they fell in 2001.

Stanley Kubrick’s life work was exposing the Saturnian brotherhood through his films according to Jay Weidner.

Troy D. McLachlan suggests the original configuration of the planets were in conjunction with Saturn as our sun until Solaris entered the solar system.

Yoda of Isleworth

Stuart-Freeborn

The legendary make-up artist Stuart Freeborn who was most famed for creating Yoda passed away this year at the age of 98.  He lived in Isleworth, west London with his wife Kay who passed away in 2012  and who was also a make-up artist and worked on The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

He based Yoda’s features on the eye wrinkles of Einstein and the ‘lumps and bumps’ of his own face. Considered a deity of the film industry, he also created Chewbacca, the Ewoks and Jabba the Hut as well as creating the images of Christopher Reeve’s Clark Kent and Superman.

Stuart’s son Graham created heads and severed hands for Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

Yoda was a self-portrait by Stuart Freeborn

He worked with Stanley Kubrick on Dr Strangelove and 2001: Space Odyssey creating the make-up for the apes in the opening scene.

He designed the make-up of Alec Guiness’s Fagin in Oliver Twist who of course would go on to play Obi Wan Kenobi.

In 1935 he made a bold move. The Times newspaper received reports that Emperor Haile Selassie had been sighted driving in Beckenham. After political and public questioning on how a foreign dignitary could be in the UK unbeknown to authorities, the truth “leaked” out. The “Emperor” was in fact Stuart with nose, beard and make-up attached.

Unfortunately, rather than attaining the admiration that the work deserved, he was temporarily detained for questioning by the local police.

Is the iPhone a prototype for an artificially intelligent monolith…and if so, what does it mean?

2001-iPhone

It was recently discussed on the David Icke Forums the speculation on another forum as to whether the iPhone was evolving into the same dimensions as the 2001: Space Odyssey monolith and also exhibiting its own embryonic forms of artificial intelligence with apps like siri already passée.

Smart-phones are not the only devices to be housed in black ‘cubes’. As previously mentioned in the Consoles of Saturn post, the main video-game platforms are also mainly ‘black cubes’ with names like Sega Saturn, XBox 360 and GameCube.

You’ll find this same theme everywhere you look technology-wise from flat-screen television sets, monitors, external hard-disks, PC boxes, amplifiers and cameras. Even a classic black computer keyboard has a series of black cubes that you press to issue commands and to access ‘cyberspace’ which means ‘kaaba-space’.

If the iPhone is an embryonic prototype of an A.I. monolith, will future space-historians interpret the Apple logo of the bitten fruit and link it directly with the biblical story of Adam and Eve and forbidden knowledge?

The monolith is of the dimensions 1:4:9 so maybe the way the device is developing, height-wise at least, the iPhone 6 will match this specification although the trend would indicate it will also become thinner as well as taller?
