Black Out 2003: Inca Lightning God Illapa sends an Asteroid by Jonah
and the lights go out in North America, at the resting place of the Cosmic Lineman.
Asteroid 37655 Illapa (1994 PM)
Chiqui Illapa (Thunder God)
Second only to Apu Inti, Chiqui Illapa was a magnanimous figure in Incan lore. Hailing rain down from the celestial river (the Milky Way), Illapa fed the empire. Incan legend asserts that he would crack his sister's water jug with a slingshot, reverberating the echoes of thunder as aqueous elixir spilled forth from the sky, showering the parched lands below. He was associated with Keypachu, the upper kingdom of heaven, and was worshipped throughout the growing season. Interestingly, any male child born during a thunderstorm was declared a priest of Chiqui Illapa, an exalted position in Incan society and within the priestly class itself.

Legends of the Aymara Indians say that the Creator God Viracocha rose from Lake Titicaca during the time of darkness to bring forth light. Viracocha was a storm god and a sun god who was represented as wearing the sun for a crown, with thunderbolts in his hands, and tears descending from his eyes as rain. He wandered the earth disguised as a beggar and wept when he saw the plight of the creatures he had created, but knew that he must sustain them. Viracocha made the earth, the stars, the sky and mankind, but his first creation displeased him, so he destroyed it with a flood and made a new, better one, taking to his wanderings as a beggar, teaching his new creations the rudiments of civilization, as well as working numerous miracles. Viracocha eventually disappeared across the Pacific Ocean (by walking on the water), setting off near Manta Ecuador, and never returned. It was thought that Viracocha would re-appear in times of trouble. References are also found of a group of men named the suncasapa or bearded ones - they were the mythic soldiers of Viracocha, aka the 'angelic warriors of Viracocha'.
Viracocha is the master of the deep, who rests with Sculptor at the bottom axis of the galaxy, and walks on water at Ophiuchus, the First Father of many nations. It is in First Father that asteroid Illapa 1994 PM is farthest from the sun. But, in 2003 the wandering NEO cuts across the bottomless pit from Aquarius to Virgo. Along the way the cosmic messenger draws the cosmically conscious to one of the most profound events of all creation, the birth of a New King of Kings.
In August 2003 asteroid Illapa mimics the second greatest of the Spirits of the Inca. He cracks the pot of the Water Carrier which contains the life giving waters of Virgo, and then dives deep into the cosmic abyss at the Navel of the World. There he performs a sacred ceremony in which no light nor sound is allowed to supercede the Son of the Sun, who is asleep after a long journey from the flood waters of creation.
As the asteroid passes the galactic pole, the worst Black Out in all of time in North America is synchronized to its metaphorical passage through the celestial resting place of all the First Fathers. One of the staffs of Viracocha can be seen held aloft in homage by the asterism of the deity. We will learn that this scepter of flint will strike a new fire, and receive the new name "Hot Stick" as a result of the spirit and timing of Illapa's Fly By.
The Destination of Souls
The Incas had a more optimistic view of the afterlife than the Mayas or Aztecs. As protective ancestral spirits, dead Incas continued to play an active role in the world of the living. They revealed themselves through the huacas and were cared for and worshipped by their descendants. The Incas were strongly moralistic, and they believed the souls of virtuous people joined the sun in heaven. Those souls had plenty to eat and drink. They remained connected to their descendants, and their lives continued much as they had on earth. The souls of evildoers went to the underworld, a cold and barren place where there was nothing to eat but stones

WASHINGTON (Aug. 16) - A failure to contain problems with three transmission
lines in northern Ohio just south of Cleveland was the likely trigger of
the nation's biggest power blackout, a leading investigator said Saturday.
Alarm systems that might have alerted engineers to the failed lines were broken, according to FirstEnergy Corp., the Akron, Ohio-based utility that officials said owned at least two of the three lines.
It was not immediately clear whether that impeded efforts to isolate the local line disruptions, some of which occurred an hour before power system shutdowns cascaded Thursday from Michigan to New York City and into Canada.
``We are fairly certain at this time that the disturbance started in Ohio,'' Michehl Gent, head of the North American Electric Reliability Council, said in a statement. ``We are now trying to determine why the situation was not brought under control after three transmission lines went out of service.''
Gent said the transmission system was designed to isolate such problems and suggested that human error might have been involved in not containing the situation.
``The system has been designed and rules have been created to prevent this escalation and cascading. It should have stopped,'' Gent said in a telephone conference call.
FirstEnergy, which officials said owns four of the first five lines that failed, said a system that is supposed to flash a red warning on computer monitors at the company's control center was not operational when the lines began failing Thursday afternoon.
FirstEnergy was aware the alarm system was broken, said company spokesman Ralph DiNicola. A functioning backup alarm at the Midwest Independent System Operator, a nonprofit power pool that oversees the region's electrical grid, was in place, DiNicola said.
At the Midwest ISO, spokeswoman Mary Lynn Webster said she did not know when workers noticed the FirstEnergy lines were disabled and what, if anything, they did about it.
Webster said the pool copes with ``thousands of alarms every minute,'' and that the failed lines weren't in areas most prone to problems.
A failure in the monitoring system could be devastating because it prevents operators from isolating failures before they spread, said Thomas Stuart, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Toledo.
Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, co-chair of a U.S.-Canadian task force that will look into the cause of the blackout, said the group is putting together investigative teams that will include experts from the government's research laboratories as well as private resources. In addition to determining the cause, the task force will recommend actions to prevent a repeat.
The task force hopes to complete an initial report within a month, the Canadian co-chairman said Saturday. ``We want to move as quickly as possible,'' said Canada's Natural Resources Minister Herb Dhaliwal, a former an electric company official.
Dhaliwal spoke Friday with Abraham and planned to meet him Wednesday in Detroit to talk about the panel's work.
Gent did not identify specifically the three power line failures that became the focus of the NERC investigation. But other council officials said they were among five reported transmission failures in the Cleveland area leading up to the blackout peak Thursday afternoon.
According to NERC, the first report came in at 3:06 p.m. EDT Thursday and involved a 345-volt line that had ``tripped'' - or gone offline. That was followed by reports on other lines failing at 3:32 p.m., 3:41 p.m., 3:46 p.m. and 4:06 p.m.
Two minutes later, according to the NERC summary, ``power swings (were) noted in Canada and the U.S.'' and three minutes after that power disruptions hit across eight states.
The transmission system in northern Ohio is operated by FirstEnergy.
Among the things yet to be determined is the relationship between lines tripping in Ohio and the unusual power swings that were observed in lines leaving Michigan and going into Canada and then back again, according to investigators.
There are more than 10,000 pages of data, including automatically generated logs on power flows over transmission lines, that need to be closely examined, said Gent.
Complicating the matter, he said, is that at the time of the power breakdown ``events were coming in so fast and furious that (some reports) ... weren't even being logged in a timely way.''
Nonetheless, Gent said he is convinced that no data was lost and whatever was not recorded will be recovered.
``We will get to the bottom of this,'' he said.

The Morning of the Rising Sun has arrived.
And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. (KJV)
CNN: A timeline of the 2003 blackout
(AP) -- Federal and industry regulators investigating what triggered Thursday's Northeast blackout have narrowed their search to transmission lines near Cleveland.
What began as a handful of commonplace, summertime "trips" -- brief transmission line shutdowns, usually due to ebbing voltage caused by anything from a bird hitting the lines to a power overload -- set off the biggest outage in U.S. history. Fifty million people lost power in eight states and parts of Canada.
Though some problems began earlier, the actual blackout did not begin until shortly after 4 p.m. EDT. Some key moments:
-- 2 p.m. FirstEnergy Corp.'s Eastlake Unit 5, a 680-megawatt coal generation plant in Eastlake, Ohio, trips off. On a hot summer afternoon, "that wasn't a unique event in and of itself," says Ralph DiNicola, spokesman for Akron, Ohio-based FirstEnergy. "We had some transmission lines out of service and the Eastlake system tripped out of service, but we didn't have any outages related to those events."
-- 3:06 p.m. FirstEnergy's Chamberlin-Harding power transmission line, a 345-kilovolt power line in northeastern Ohio, trips. The company hasn't reported a cause, but the outage put extra strain on FirstEnergy's Hanna-Juniper line, the next to go dark.
-- 3:32 p.m. Extra power coursing through FirstEnergy's Hanna-Juniper 345-kilovolt line heats the wires, causing them to sag into a tree and trip.
-- 3:41 p.m. An overload on First Energy's Star-South Canton 345-kilovolt line trips a breaker at the Star switching station, where FirstEnergy's grid interconnects with a neighboring grid owned by the American Electric Power Co. AEP's Star station is also in northeastern Ohio.
-- 3:46 p.m. AEP's 345-kilovolt Tidd-Canton Control transmission line also trips where it interconnects with FirstEnergy's grid, at AEP's connection station in Canton, Ohio.
-- 4:06 p.m. FirstEnergy's Sammis-Star 345-kilovolt line, also in northeast Ohio, trips, then reconnects.
-- 4:08 p.m. Utilities in Canada and the eastern United States see wild power swings. "It was a hopscotch event, not a big cascading domino effect," says Sean O'Leary, chief executive of Genscape, a company that monitors electric transmissions.
-- 4:09 p.m. The already lowered voltage coursing to customers of Cleveland Public Power, inside the city of Cleveland, plummets to zero. "It was like taking a light switch and turning it off," says Jim Majer, commissioner of Cleveland Public Power. "It was like a heart attack. It went straight down from 300 megawatts to zero."
-- 4:10 p.m. The Campbell No. 3 coal-fired power plant near Grand Haven, Michigan trips off.
-- 4:10 p.m. A 345-kilovolt line known as Hampton-Thetford, in Michigan's thumb region, trips.
-- 4:10 p.m. A 345-kilovolt line known as Oneida-Majestic, in southeast Michigan, trips.
-- 4:11 p.m. Orion Avon Lake Unit 9, a coal-fired power plant in Avon Lake, Ohio, trips.
-- 4:11 p.m. A transmission line running along the Lake Erie shore to the Davis-Besse nuclear plant near Toledo, Ohio, trips.
-- 4:11 p.m. A transmission line in northwest Ohio connecting Midway, Lemoyne and Foster substations trips.
-- 4:11 p.m. The Perry Unit 1 nuclear reactor in Perry, Ohio, shuts down automatically after losing power.
-- 4:11 p.m. The FitzPatrick nuclear reactor in Oswego, New York, shuts down automatically after losing power.
-- 4:12 p.m. The Bruce Nuclear station in Ontario, Canada, shuts down automatically after losing power.
-- 4:12 p.m. Rochester Gas & Electric's Ginna nuclear plant near Rochester, New York, shuts down automatically after losing power.
-- 4:12 p.m. Nine Mile Point nuclear reactor near Oswego, New York, shuts down automatically after losing power.
-- 4:15 p.m. FirstEnergy's Sammis-Star 345-kilovolt line, in northeast Ohio, trips and reconnects a second time.
-- 4:16 p.m. Oyster Creek nuclear plant in Forked River, New Jersey, shuts down automatically because of power fluctuations on the grid.
-- 4:17 p.m. The Enrico Fermi Nuclear plant near Detroit shuts down automatically after losing power.
-- 4:17-4:21 p.m. Numerous power transmission lines in Michigan trip.
-- 4:25 p.m. Indian Point nuclear power plants 2 and 3 in Buchanan, New York, shut down automatically after losing power.

Illapa's timeline for the resurrection and return of Viracocha.
Illapa is a Near Earth Object on August 16, 2003, passing within ten lunar distances.
Not a near miss in celestial substance, but a direct hit in celestial metaphor.
The most critical moment is when FirstEnergy loses power but does not pay close attention to the details. Within the hour the asteroid named after the Inca deity of Thunder and Lightning crosses the boundary of Viracocha, the creator god of the Inca. In the metaphors of the Inca's, this would be a most solemn moment, for Viracocha had gone across the great ocean, and his return was just a hopeful dream. Thus, the passing of his resting place called for complete silence out of respect for all the ancestors along the Way of the Dead. If the heavens have anything to say about events on earth, then they would ask for a moment of silence, which is precisely what Illapa synchronizes for the Old People. The silence continued as Illapa crossed the house of the Eternal Flame and the Phoenix, in metaphorical perfection. Then, as Illapa entered the house of the River of Heavenly Life (Eridanus), the silence was released as the power started to come back on.
Crossing the boundary of the Old People triggered the silence. Note the presence of Pachakama (Earth), Yakumama (Water), Mamacocha (Sea), and Mamaquilla (Moon) under the wand of the Egyptian Goddess of Creative Inspiration. This is also the ball of the Hip Shot taken by Hunahpu as he and Xblanque defeated the Lords of Xbalba, the Lords of Darkness and Death in the Popol Vuh of the Maya.
This is also a place sacred to Christian scriptures as the place where a New
World Order would rise form the see to compensate for the Roman conquest of the
collective human soul. Matt 17:24-27 And when they were
come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said,
Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the
house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the
kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of
strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are
the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the
sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou
hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give
unto them for me and thee. (KJV)
The zenith meridian when FirstEnergy lost Eastlake Unit 5 was between Jupiter and Apollyon, while Venus and the Sun approached the conjunction of the Great Ones. The implication of this correspondence is that payment is being returned for the lost souls of 9-11. Rev 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.(KJV)
Entrance to Seventh Heaven, and the land of the Jaguar.
Beneath the Powerless Earth a message of death and rebirth is revealed as the vision of the Heavenly Hosts from above.
The breast of the Stork carries the nadir meridian of the Land of the Powerless. FirstEnergy found itself on the meridian of FirstMan (Uranus); representing an interesting coincidence that the moment which represents the "First Energyless Moment" occurs under the name First Energy on the meridian of First Man.
When the final trip occurs, the heavenly fields are above the Powerless Earth, as First Mother (Virgo) begins to speak to the people fleeing without panic, for they know from experience that loss of the status quo is not loss of the Cosmic Mother's grace filled hand. Though a serious financial burden, the spiritual result of the Black Out of 2003 was that of a Block Party compared to the 911 Call heard two years earlier.
Wisdom is behind the head of Great Virgin. She came to test the Great Man at Judgment Day, so that she can properly inaugurate a new king and a New World Order at the same time.
Beneath the Powerless Earth Illapa stands upon the meridian and First Father, Viracocha, and a Moment of Silence is rendered to the inattentive children of Pachakama, Faithful Earthlings.
The Nadir sat as a crown on the head of the Phoneix, and the Birdman of Rapa Nui found peace in his cave as he greeted the arrival of Illapa.
The Christian Fisher of Men, the Seker-Asar of Egypt, the Jonah and Job of the Hebrews, and the Ishmael of Islam, are all represented in the moment of silence that initiated the ceremony of the Dawn of Aquarius. As such, we can reconsider the Uas Scepter, or the Fire Stick of Viracocha, to discover a new metaphor for all time. The object in the hand of the man laying on the stones of creation is nothing less than the Hot Stick of a Lineman.
In modern electrical maintenance, the power industry uses a Fire Stick, Uas Scepter, Scepter of Flint, which they call a "Hot Stick." The object of the "Hot Stick" is to give the man power over the electrical power on the line. The object of the Scepter of Flint is to give the man the power of fire itself. It was this very gift that cost Phaeton the fall from his chariot as he became more brilliant than the sun. Thus, Illapa, the Inca deity of Thunder and Lightning, was just a Lineman for the Cosmos. The location where the Cosmic Lineman sleeps is the very foundation of the Glory of the Lord at the Navel of the Universe, the galactic pole in the south where all cosmic power and correspondences are founded. Meanwhile, on Pachakama, the earthling Linemen were asleep at the grid, and Chiqui Illama came when they were unsuspecting in order to remind them that the time has come to pay attention, or suffer the consequences of Cosmic Attention Deficit Disorder as the greatest Black Out in human history awakens the people asleep at the switch, and over 50 million more.
In the territory of the Lineman for the Cosmos, there is one power pole of most importance. That pole is the axle about which all the creator gods spin the wheel of creation. It was at this very axis that the Black Out of 2003 occurred. Is it a coincidence, or is it the gods and the God giving a reminder to turn the light on?
The choice is up to each child of Pachakama to decide whether they are to be born of the Virgin, for she holds the flower on the top of the pole, where a kingly feline struts by the Great Bear, and a pair of balancing plates show that Virgo as the Queen of Sheba is ready to do what she must to pass through the Day of Judgment when the Northeast of North America was cast into darkness, powerless to alter their fate. If the availability of Free Will is not the ultimate proof of the Creator's Grace, then those who are given the music and the light of the Cosmic Lineman's Works, are simply asleep with a Hot Stick in their hands. Free Will can be Excalibur to any who would pull it from the stone of rigid perceptions, and wave the Magic Wand of the Great Goddesses who dream of Great Men.
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun for another overload
I hear you singin' in the wire, I can hear you through the whine
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line
I know I need a small vacation but it don't look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain
And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line
So take hold of the cosmic hot stick and remember where you were when the light went out. Maybe then you will know where Moses was when the light went out. Until then, he and all the patriarchs of the heaven will simply be living in a dark cave of forgetfulness.
