TRIBUTE IN LIGHT
Part 3: The heavens speak as the singing ends.
Return to Part 2:
The Tribute In Light began at dusk when the lights were turned on an hour before Jupiter reached the zenith and Venus reached the western horizon. So let us see if the celestial picture book has anything to say about the final song of the memorial on March 11, 2002. Can we find any synchronistic message that supports the thunderbolts of Zeus, or must we all fall under the spell of Hades? Lets begin at the end of the ceremony when the last song was sung and look straight up to the zenith to see where the twin beams of the Tribute In Light ascended to the heavens.
The zenith was in the asterism of the reigns of the charioteer, the mountain of Horeb, and the hell fire and brimstone of Sodom and Gomorrah. Synchronous to that zenith meridian sat the top of the mountain and the ancient ruler of the solar system, Jupiter. This is the place of Zeus, for the planet is on the foot of the second born twin. The twins are now called Castor and Pollux. But, they have had many names since they were first identified. If we follow Hades in the leftward movement of his chariot, it appears that Castor would be the first born every day, for Castor would rise before Pollux. Yet, the leftward movement is the direction the planets travel, and the planets are all falling into the sun. Thus, leftward is downward. Cosmic time is measured the way Horus flies and Leo strides. Cosmic time is right running. The equinoxes and solstice are right running, and contrary to modern astrology and modern science, these markers of the celestial cross are showing the direction to the future. It is a tricky observation, but it helps if we acknowledge the dependency of children on parents. The vast majority of the star dust in the solar system fell into the sun. Small insignificant bits of the whirlpool of star dust gathered in places where they could fight the pull of the sun. Today, the inner solar system is protected by the massive accumulation of star dust we call Jupiter. Were it not for Jupiter, according to modern scientific analysis, the four inner planets, Mercury (wisdom), Venus (love), Earth (life), and Mars (rationality), would have been destroyed by cosmic debris. We witnessed such debris when comet Shumaker-Levi collided with Jupiter in 1995, twenty five years to the day after man first walked on the moon. The scars caused by the debris of the ripped apart comet in the cloud of gas that is Jupiter were larger by many magnitudes than the whole Earth. So, we do not need to theorize that Jupiter is a rescuer and ruler of the children within its orbits, we have eye witness accounts.
Before we leave the zenith note the position of Saturn. It was located at Aldebaron, the eye of the bull. The Egyptians called Saturn by the name Horus-the-Bull. The constellation of Taurus was drawn on the cave at Lascaux 17,000 years ago in the same way it is drawn today. All the other bulls, with the exception of Saturn, have given way to other metaphors as waves of human consciousness joined the heavens and the earth in one glorious union. The Hyades, where Aldebaron and Saturn sat, is the ancient well where Moses met the seven daughters of Jethro. This is the Bull of My Mother. It is the Cosmic Mother's house. Egypt drew her in many forms, Hathor the sacred cow, Isis the sacred cow, and most importantly, Seshat, whose hieroglyph was a wand with a seven pointed star between the inverted horns of a bovine. Seshat was the goddess of wisdom, for she taught her consort, Thoth, how to write. The Greek placed the Goddess of Wisdom on the acropolis in the Temple to Athena that is still the landmark of the city of democratic wisdom. In America we see Seshat and Athena in the form of Liberty in the harbor that witnessed the holocaust of 911. We know that Liberty is Athena and Seshat because they all wear a crown with seven points. Seven numbers the days of the weeks and the spirits of God. With Saturn between the ancient horns of Taurus, we are witnessing the moment of a new creation, for Seshat, Athena, and Liberty, have waved the wand of the Fairy Godmother across the land known as "e pluribus unum," out of many, one. Seven points joined to make one goddess and one God, with the goal of uniting Seven Heavens and Seven Hades into One Cosmos.
The nadir under the Tribute In Light at 7:00 pm, when the formal celebrations ended, sat squarely on the Southern Crown. The Southern Crown was worn by Tutankhamun on the cosmic hope chest found in his tomb. This is the crown of earthly wisdom at the feet of Sagittarius. The "bow in the sky" is a symbol of peace and understanding. Often the bow and the archer are treated as symbols of conquest, as they were on the hope chest of Tutankhamun and in Revelation 6:2. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. The conquest is that implied by Brad Lemley in the Discovery article "Guth's Grand Guess." Sagittarius points his bow toward Antares, the heart of Scorpio, whose name means not Mars, a metaphor for unbalanced desire. The circumcision of the Great Red Dragon is the central theme of Revelation, for John the Divine was presenting the birth of Libra and Good Judgment. If we take a closer look we see that Sagittarius was not aiming at the aesthetic life of the sage. Rather, the bow is pointed at the Galactic Center. Wisdom is that wave of consciousness that comes when we solve a mystery of how things began. "Guth's Grand Guess" is the arrow in the bow of Saggitarius, for our solar system falls around the Black Hole that occupies the center of our galaxy.
Between sunset and 7:00 pm on March 11, 2001 the nadir of the Tribute In Light passed through the womb of the Milky Way and a new wave of consciousness was born. It was a crowning moment as the last melody was sung, and the eye of the Peacock joined the "bow in the clouds" with the mouth of Quetzalcoatl and Tauret to memorialize the souls of the innocent and the heroic people whose lives were taken from the earth six months earlier. Let's take another journey around the horizon of New York when the ceremony became a memory and see what the heavens had to say. Click here.
Starting where we left off sixty-six minutes ago we see that Horus has flown across the meridian and his message from Maat was delivered below, as it was above. Seth has passed on by carrying Osiris on his back, and Isis touches the meridian at the end of the flight of her son Horus. The feather of truth is well on its way above the southeast horizon, and the eternal flame on the tomb has touched the southwest horizon.
Directly on the meridian in the previous zenith image Jupiter was just arriving with the top of the mountain of Auriga. Here the hand of Isis (Mirzam) and the keel of the Sun Boat (Canopus) sit precisely on the meridian bounding the tail of Horus. The story of the Flight of Isis is the tale of Horus, and we have clear agreement below and above.
Moving over to the west horizon we see an incredible image. The planet Venus lay direclty on the horizon. The cross-section of the North Tower is shown by a wing of Pegasus and the head of Andromeda. Venus is the ancient goddess of love, and Andromeda is Persephone and Hagar, the mother of Ishmael. Thus, we see love and light came to the Tribute In Light ceremony just like in the fables of the ancients. Hermes is there at the foot of the Water Carrier in the guise of Mercury. He is accompanied by the waxing Moon, and Uranus. Uranus is the Roman name for Ouranos, the first father of Greek cosmogony. On the other side, Mars, the god of rational being, was at the head of the Ram and the tail of the Whale. A comet called Ishmael sat midway between the lines of the fish that mark the Christian and Muslim calendar origins.
Hercules holds the heads of Cerberus, the guard dog of Hades at the north meridian. Thirteen thousand years ago the North Pole sat on his ankle. The people who watched the sky rotate around the ankle would have witnessed the story of Achilles, who falling to earth from the realm of the divine was impervious to danger because he had been dipped in a sacred pool by his mother. She held him by his ankle, and as a result his only vulnerable location was his ankle. Thirteen thousand years ago Achilles died when the Pillars of Hercules marked the North Pole
When the Great Pyramid of Giza and the star Alnitak synchronize with the summer solstice the North Pole will be in the house of the King of Kings. It will stay there for seven thousand years. But, the swan song of the king will not end until the pole reaches the ankle of Achilles, and the pillars of a wild man come to stand for a moment of time. When the four millennia of the pillars of the man hanging by his feet are passed, a herdsman will come to tend the Elysian Fields and command stone to be bread.
Gen 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
In the view before the face of the Great Sphinx we can see the garden of Eden where a man tills the field with his plow and a woman raises a flower in her hair. Under the woman a serpent lays with heads; living and dead.
|This magical place where the first temptation occurred reveals the fundamental cause of the Tribute In Light. While living on top of the world we are led by intuition with no rational plan. Genetic wisdom is the subliminal knowledge carried in the way things are. If we have all we ever need, in a world where death is a possibility and genetic wisdom guides instincts and intuition, life and death are the only judgments to be made. Essentially, the question raised by the serpent in the garden is "To be, or not to be?" Genetic wisdom carried in the autoimmune system impels us to survive in a state of free will. That desire is the subtle serpent which causes all children to fall from grace. For it creates the dream of death within a living soul, and Persephone falls to Hades.|
Seventh Heaven is clearly not the place we are headed to, it is the place we ran away from. We began to run the moment we conjured evil. The English world carries the definition within the spelling. Evil is live, spelled backwards. The reference to Luke quoted in the North View is followed with the verses of Luke 4:6-11.
And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee,
and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I
give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus
answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou
shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. And he brought
him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If
thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is written, He
shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they
shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
There is a stone in celestial Jerusalem where a Herdsman, Beekeeper, Hunter, and Gardener, steps above the sensible cosmos. If he stumbles on his way to Seventh Heaven, the rock in Jerusalem will trip him and he will fall with Adnromeda, Hagar, and Persephone, to the bottom of the galaxy under a great pillar. For, the distance between a Herdsman rising and a Donkey Man falling is one insensible rational thought. In ancient times errors led to the bottom of the universe. However, since then we have increased our capacity to see the universe and have come to understand that there are as many visible galaxies as their are visible stars in our Milky Way. This knowledge has led us to conclude that the ancient knew not what they do, as echoed by the editors of Discovery magazine. The mistake is so profound that it deserves repeating with emphasis.
The Last Great Mystery - Discover Magazine April 2002, page 31
As Lemley and Guth talked, their conversation led to the implications of inflation theory. "If the universe could come from nothing," Lemley asked, "what does that mean to us as human beings?"
"I think it undermines the belief that we are here for any cosmic purpose," Guth said. "It does not mean that our lives are meaningless. It means we must give meaning to our lives ourselves." That view obviously leaves little room for most of the world's religious teachings.
The next day, Lemley was jogging through the Bowdin College campus near his home in Topsham, Maine. "I was thinking about Guth's assertion that science can explain the birth of the universe in the context of the laws of physics but has no clue about about the origin of those laws." At that moment, Lemley noticed a phrase "Nature's Laws are God's thoughts" etched in granite on the Searles Science Building, built in 1894. "I had passed that building dozens of times and had never seen that before," Lemley says with a smile. "Back then where those laws came from wasn't a mystery. In 2002 it's the last great mystery."
How is it that a specialist in particle physics is qualified to address the question of cosmic purpose? He simply gives meaning to his own life, and disregards the fact that the world's religious teachings came from reading the heavenly hosts. For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Particle physicists, trained in quantum mechanics and astrophysical phenomena do not have any training in conversations with the Heavenly Host. It hasn't always been that way, for if it had been, then how could all the surface of the visible universe be covered with Heavenly Hosts? The problem lays in the virgin minds that wondered in the flowery fields about the way things are. These virgin minds rejected the Heavenly Hosts because they did not want to let the angels have charge over them. That fear of angels was the temptation of Eve that sent Persephone to Hades along with the modern cow of science. The material sciences as they are practiced today function on only one plateau; the plateau of the material world. Any practitioners on this plateau who are arrogant enough to express opinions about the other six plateaus of creation are naive children caught in their mother's womb like Esau was caught by Jacob. They speak with great wisdom as their target, but these lambs have the voice of the dragon.
It has not been our goal to shoot arrows at magazine editors and absent minded professors. Our goal was to demonstrate Cosmic Synchronicity with the Tribute In Light. Since the Tribute In Light was initiated by the arrogant acts of naive children practicing a religion from Hades, we have to demonstrate the course that their Great Red Dragon has taken. The terrorist man children of Islam were taught from birth to fight the material world as an illusion for the sake of a Day of Judgment that will come in 50,000 years. They prepared themselves for death. Death to these zealots was just a holding place before Judgment Day when they would be evaluated based upon their commitment to Allah. And there is no greater commitment than giving one's life. The question that naive children fail to ask is, "Does the Creator desire life or death?" The answer cannot be proven by mathematical dogma, nor by spiritual dogma, the proof is in the putting. The creation lives!
Between the death of Muhammad and September 11, 2001 the advocates of Allah have forgotten and then repressed the word that Allah created all, and Allah is all, and every desire is the desire of Allah. This truth leaves no room for any sensible rationality to mistake that this material world is the Creator's handiwork, and the Creator's body. The Koran evolves from the Torah and the Gospels with a strict allegiance to the proposition of John 1:1-5. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. Islam, more that Judaism and Christianity acknowledges the Word of God. The founding generations of Islam between Muhammad and Genghis Khan took the celestial word as the source, and that is why the modern world uses Arabic numerals and the stars are dominated by Arabic names. However, the legacy of the Khans is repression, oppression, and the sublimation of human emotion. Only a man child stripped of all sensibility could target a structure with 50,000 living souls for destruction and believe that they were accomplishing the loving will of the Creator.
Rather than blame, we must see the light. Approximately eight centuries before September 11, 2001, the Khans came to Baghdad and committed the genocidal act of murdering every man woman and child in the greatest city Islam ever built. Subsequently the Khans murdered some 16 million Muslim souls. In 1948, after the defeat of the Turkish Empire in World War I, and the holocaust of the Jews in World War II, the Western World established the nation of Israel in the lands that hand been conquered by Islam. This brought Islam's first enemy, Isaac, to the hallowed lands of Ishmael, their First Father, with a claim that the land belonged to the descendants of Isaac. Now that the modern world has achieved a technically balanced state with wars fought in economic terms rather than it terms of blood and nuclear holocaust, we are guided by Islamic zealots to focus on the spiritual war that started the whole process called Western Civilization. If we were to evaluate this behavior on an individual psychological basis we would conclude that serial murderers have repressions of great traumatic memories. That analysis also applies to the collective level.
spiritual trauma that we are experiencing is a direct result of Abraham denying
his father's ways. Before the paternalism of Abrahamic religion, the world was
flooded in goddesses. It was the goddesses that were eliminated by Judaism and
Islam. We do not have to resort to Scriptural references to verify this process
has occurred. Most of the archeological remains of cultures that did not follow
the route of Western Culture indicate a general balance existed between Mother
Earth and Father Sky. Before the foundation of civilization, there was no great
kingdom to conquer. After the foundation of civilization, it became easier to
usurp and conquer established cultures than to initiate new cultures. These
characteristics are decidedly masculine. The conquests of Genghis Khan still
stand as the greatest ever experienced by human cultures, with the limited
exception of the Spanish Conquests. In either case, masculine rationalization
drug the feminine sensitivity down into a dark abyss. It is this aspect of
tyrannical rationalization that brought down the twin towers of the World Trade
Center. Civilizations will always have to fight the uncivilized world. And
civilization is not the panacea for barbarism, it is simply the repression of
Mother Nature. It did not start out that way, or Athen's would not have built
the Acropolis to Athena. The necessity to restore the wisdom of Maternal Nature
in waves of consciousness was the mother of the invention called Athens. We
acknowledge our faults by the ideals we hold in highest esteem, and at the same
time we rationalize the lowly dark place we find ourselves within. All repressed
emotions must be joined by wisdom of the upper world before the aberrant and
aborant behavior can be modified. This truth was immortalized in the Greek's
story of Persephone, and that story was taken down from the stars before it was
placed amongst the Heavenly Hosts. Above the dark cave of Hades standing in the
clouds of love and light is eternal Maternal Nature. Five thousand years ago,
Western Civilization set out to conquer Mother Nature, and on September 11,
2001, the Queen of Sheba came back with a vengeance.
The Sculptor of Creation placed us all in a Heavenly Garden. And, it is the most grievous mistake to deny the Creator's Works, especially since the evidence is right before the face. Yet, that is precisely what Western Civilization has done since Socrates taught philosophy without experimentation. When we utilize philosophy of any kind without sensual experimentation, we are riding the chariot of Hades, and we will follow the Donkey Man to the trash heap of the Earth. The Tribute In Light shows the way out of the pit of Hades for all who will allow the Heavenly Hosts to have charge over them, and guide them. It is those same Heavenly Hosts that have guided the great accomplishments of Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Hawking, Guth, and many other specialists on Mother Nature. In every case, where misunderstanding results in war, it is False Expectations Appearing Real (FEAR) that initiates hostile action. Fear is opposition to Mother Nature. In our journey with the Heavenly Hosts, we followed Persephone into darkness, and we can follow that same flowering spirit back into love and light. We did not move the stars. But, those who can communicate with the stars will certainly be moved by the Heavenly Hosts.
The Tribute In Light was timed by the actions of the heavens. Human consciousness may appear to be the blame and the resolve, but human consciousness has always followed the path of angels. In our arrogant desires we deny that Fallen Angels are the Sons of God. The view from our Platonic cave blinds us with love and light. If any of the messages presented in the drawings of the heavens in the essay are comprehended, it is clear that the serpent in the garden is indeed subtle. The Greeks killed Typhon through the actions of Zeus and the brought Hades to rule the darkness. When the Greeks lost Olympus to the Romans, they wrote a new book. Their new book speaks of the conquest of Truth by the Romans. The guidelines for their new image of God were taken directly from the temples of Egypt, for Egypt had experienced the same repression when the Asiatics destroyed Thebes, Egypt in 667 BC. Egypt had survived many conquest by paternalism. In the defeat of Akhenaten they survived a form of maternalism that was predatory and communistic. The Aten religion set out to destroy all the images of divinity within the history of Egypt, in particular the body of Osiris. All usurpers attempt to destroy the body of Osiris, for Osiris is the collective memory of human cultures. After the defeat of the U.S.S.R, and the slow initiation of capitalistic economics in China, the greatest problem for human civilization became Monotheism. The only significant surviving Monotheistic cults on the planet today are those based upon the legend of Abraham. It is the core of our calendars and our measurements of time. Light serves one purpose in the cosmic creation, it carries the essence of time. When we see the light we are simply doing what comes naturally in the processes of Mother Nature. Love is not in the light, therefore, love is not of the substance of light. Light cannot carry love, for some light represses, and some light empowers. Love comes when a free consciousness chooses to add to the light the comprehension of the light. Love is the Tribute In Light.
LOVE AND LIGHT
The purpose of creation is written with the substance of light. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be.
The struggle of Light and Love is the struggle between Hades and Zeus, Abraham and his ancestors, Ishmael and Isaac, Esau and Jacob, John and Jesus. The struggle is like a fur ball in a cat fight. Any observer cannot determine what the fuss is all about, nor who is winning or losing. Only those in the midst of the battle "know" what is happening. Of those, the truth is always on the side of the collective consciousness. Any individual perception of light will cast a shadow against that which has been repressed, or yet unseen. An external observer cannot see the shadows, neither can the internal individual who casts the light. The symbolism in the image above has precisely the same metaphor as the image of Shu lifting the Sun beneath his daughter and above his son, as his wife, Tefnut-Nieth, stands mostly submerged in the darkened abyss. Those who can sense the light can sense the love. Love is long suffering. Thus, love flows from the dark to the light, from Hades to Olypmus. The words of Job summarize the struggle of man to deal with finite imperfect knowledge on the way to wisdom's door.
He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it. He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end. The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof. He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud. By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent. Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding? Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air. Destruction and death say, "We have heard the fame thereof with our ears." God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof. For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure. When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder: Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out. And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears? Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.
Listen to these words and realize that some author extracted meaning from the heavens. The words of the face and throne spread over with a cloud describe the Queen of Sheba, King of Kings, and the galactic cloud (Cassiopeia, Cepheus, Milky Way). The pillars of heaven tremble as they move through time, for Guth's best guess says that the time for the wobble of the earth passed more than five hundred thousand times since quantum gravity gave way to the Inflationary Universe, and the majority of that before the earth coalesced from the dust of dead stars. Pride leads to the home of the crooked serpent under the sun boat, in the realm of darkness in the heavens below, and in the hearts of the young. And wisdom belongs to those without life, the absent minded professors and radical terrorists both extract love to gain understanding, when they falsely attempt to extract evil to gain understanding. Many nations have attempted to control or eliminate the crooked serpent, and in every case they have been consumed by the heart of darkness. If we choose the Sethian way, we must deny the Crooked Serpent called the Leviaton or the Great Shayton. The followers of Horus tried to tell the world that the Creator placed guideposts and angels throughout the heavens to reveal the path of light and love. Throughout means as above, so below. The travelers that journey to the Elysian Fields, Olympus, Zion, Seventh Heaven, or Persephone's field of flowers, are lost on the road to pride. Pride is an instinctive response to light. If we can take pride in what we do, and those who follow us can reap the benefit, then we are true rescuers of creation. That is what Guth's Grand Guess implies. The light created love in the dark void. Horus carries the nesting material to the Crooked Serpent, not in forgiveness, but without judgment. The implication of the message in the mouth of the little bird is that true love is unconditional love. With this message Persephone can begin her journey out of the depth of psychoanalysis, and come into that place filled with love and light.
The Tribute In Light to love was scheduled to last for thirty-two days. Why? Could the fact that the night of April 12, 2002 coincides with the sun and the moon passing the same meridian have anything to do with it? The Jews keep time in lunar conjunctions with the sun. This conjunction is called the new moon. The Muslims keep time in similar fashion, with the proviso that the crescent moon must be witnessed by an Imam or qualified Muslim. Did the City of New York tie the Tribute In Light to the coming of a New Moon? This author can only suppose that it was deliberately done for ritual purposes, i.e., same date number. Certainly the timing of the turning on of the Tribute In Light was set by a Force greater than any living man, for March 11, 2002 represents a Christian calendar sixth month anniversary date of the day of infamy. Thus, all three Abrahamic religions are involved in the timing of the Tribute In Light. The Christian measure of time turned on the light and one day over the Christian month turned off the light, with the memorial of the 11th Day being duplicated on the 11th Hour for thirty-two days. Synchronistically, the calendars of the sons of Abraham share in turning off the light, for the memorial is scheduled to be completed the day before the lunar solar conjunction that initiates new count sequences in their calendars.
MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG
AND GOVERNOR GEORGE E. PATAKI
"The intention of the interim memorials is to provide all New Yorkers with a place to pay tribute to the memory of those we have lost in the tragic events of September 11th and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing," said Mayor Bloomberg. "Our hope is that the 'Tribute in Light' memorial provides a small amount of respite, and that 'The Sphere' memorial serves as a place to mourn and reflect. Both memorials express the power of art to heal and serve as a symbol of the spirit and courage of America and the resilience of New York City."
"Nothing can truly blunt the feeling of loss for the victims' families, and for all New Yorkers, but both 'The Sphere' - a monument that symbolized fostering world peace when it was a focal point in the World Trade Center Plaza - and 'Tribute in Light' - beams of light that will temporarily illuminate the night sky - will be a fitting interim commemorations of the sacrifices made," said Governor Pataki. "As we strive to heal from the unspeakable horror of September 11th, we can look to these symbols of hope as places from which we draw strength, and remember."
"'The Sphere' was always an important meeting place and has great personal significance for those who worked in the World Trade Center," said Ms. Ferer. "For that reason, it is an appropriate and touching symbol to show that the spirit of global peace it represents will endure."
The first memorial, "Tribute in Light," consists of two great beams of light that will rise from Lot 26, bounded by West Street, Murray Street, Vesey Street and the Embassy Suites Hotel in Battery Park City, and will shine each night for thirty-two days from dusk to 11 p.m. The installation consists of two banks of forty-four spotlights each, projecting about a mile into the night sky.
There can be little doubt that the remembrance had the expression of love as its purpose. And that alone is sufficient to prove the fallacy in Guth's proposition that an inflationary universe has no purpose. The idea that science is at odds with religion is a very new concept. Steven Hawking, the individual now residing in Newton's chair at Cambridge, and Alan Guth at MIT have both written books and published views that suggest the material cosmology of modern science proves that the scriptural creation science of the Bible, and by inference, the Koran, is false science. Newton, whose works are a principal foundation of modern science, had a different point of view. He dabbled in the occult and he went to great length to disprove the Trinity concept of Christianity. He had many works on the Book of Revelation, which ironically he never seemed to grasp, even though the Book of Revelation is the treasure trove of a stargazer, John the Divine. Nevertheless, Newton dedicated his life to presenting the concept etched in granite on the Searles Science Building in 1894, "Nature's Laws are God's thoughts."
Coming of Age in the Milky Way, by Timothy Ferris, 1988, page 121
In any case, the ultimate unsolved questions were for Newton not scientific but theological. His career had been one long quest for God; his research had spun out of this quest, as if by centrifugal force, but he had no doubt that his science like his theology would redound to the greater glory of the Creator. "When I wrote my treatise upon our System I had an eye upon such Principles as might work with considering men for the belief of a Deity and nothing can rejoice me more than to find it useful for that purpose," he replied to a query from a young chaplain, the Reverend Richard Bentley, who was writing a series of sermons on God and natural law.31 At the conclusion of the Principia, Newton asserted that "this most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being."
The evidence presented in this essay clearly supports Newton's position over Guth and Hawking. Newton did not conclude that the universe is a "free lunch," as Guth and Hawking have accepted. Newton's intuition led him to more discoveries of natural law than any individual before him, albeit at the cost of common sense. Even so, Newton never went against his intuitive strength by declaring that his mathematical expressions exceed the principle of an existent Creator presented in the sacred sciences of the ancients. If any of these great scientists had maintained an appreciation for common sense they would have realized that for a Creator to communicate with the created, the Creator would have to come down to earth and use the language of the created. The Zionist and Olympic quests of Israel and Greece, along with the Islamic quest for Seventh Heaven, get their power from behind the gate of Hades. Persephone was unhappy in Hades, and that judgment sealed her fate. Christianity teaches that the greatest moment in life is when the cave is opened after pride has been dealt a severe blow. And that is why the Christian calendar marks time on the planet earth.
