    The Missing Link

    I’ve noticed that, when it comes to the people who do research into phenomenon related to 2012, the synchronicity is a crucial concept that helps one piece together the bizarre riddle of awakening one experiences while riding the wave-front crest of a bona fide “Kali Yuga” –the paradoxical Beginning and End Time Cycle of Creation-Destruction-Rebirth spoken about in ancient Hindu texts. For the past several years I have been working towards unraveling a mysterious synchronicity that represents a meta-theory of sorts, in that it reveals how a synchronicity of this advanced nature works on a symbolic ARCH-etypal level; a process that has been a real world riddle-me-this initiation into a formidable paradigm of semiotic analysis. Needless to say, it is not an easy task trying to articulate the labyrinth-like complexity of this meta-theory in simple prose within a linear narrative format to those unfamiliar with the intuitive, JESTER-like nature of hermeneutic interpretation, especially for someone like myself who is not a naturally gifted writer. So if it feels like I’m repeating myself it’s because…

    The information being here introduced is yet another attempt to stumble upon the right combination of analogous phenomenon to convince those reading that the synchronicity I have discovered is of profound importance to the process of awakening these times seem destined to commence. Most interestingly, as we shall see, the proof of this assertion is actually encoded within the synchronicity itself, if we accept that convergent and anomalous phenomena represent singularities that are quantifiable attributes of synchronistic events. If this proves accurate then the degrees of correspondence within this synchronicity are so complex (multi-source contextual), so direct (one to one correlations between sources), so singular (corresponding reference data representing archetypal or iconic phenomena) and so internally coherent (self-referential), that the probability of these connections being a random coincidence is a mathematical impossibility. Once we accept this supposition as a potentiality the facts then begin to speak for themselves–and the story they tell is very much worth paying attention toJ

    The most obvious starting point for this 2012 synchronicity is the year 2012. Of course, much has been made of the relationship of 2012, to the Mayan Calendar, to several ancient prophesies, and from that to the various convergent alignments currently taking place within our “OWO” global economic system, terrestrial/ecological/geological system, planetary/galactic/universal system, multi-dimensional/black hole multi-verse, and so on, et all, ad infinitum. Regardless of the various competing theories as to what this all entails, why it’s happening, and what we can or can’t do about it (or should or need to do about it), all experts within the emerging Global Awakening-Hidden History Movement agree that a major synchronicity of some sort is already underway, set to peak sometime around the year 2012. My purpose here is not to sort out truth from fiction regarding this synchronistic event. However, my discoveries do corroborate the fact that this synchronicity does indeed exist; that this synchronicity, when understood on a symbolic ARCH-etypal level, defines a new Logos-like perspective of reality; and that this new perspective in turn might help uncover what discovery of truth the 2012 phenomenon holds for you.

    Interestingly enough, the organizing factor in this Correlation Theory is historical phenomena connected to Ohio singularities that form a connective pattern of “Black Swan” associations directly linked to the synchronicity of Columbus, Ohio’s upcoming 2012 Bi-centennial celebration. The proof of this again is found in the synchronicity itself, since, of all the 50 state capitols, Ohio’s “Capitol City” is the only one celebrating not only a BIRTH-day in 2012 (thus making it a singularity), but its Bi-centennial, 200-year anniversary BIRTH-day; which makes this synchronicity a double or “2X” singularity, in terms of its coherence, and thus doubly sign-ificant.

    In more concrete terms, consider the following. That the WORD “Bi-centennial” can be read as a Re-currence of some sort, in this case the second occurrence of a 100-year segment of TIME called a century; that the word “Re-currence” is also a metaphor of the WORD “Re-turn;” that a Bi-centennial celebration is a “2X” century anniversary Re-turn; that in this case the anniversary sign-fies a BIRTH-day (celebrating the 2nd 100-year anniversary SIGN-ing of Columbus’ Civic Charter); that this Bi-centennial anniversary/BIRTH-day celebration takes place in Ohio’s “Capitol City,” Columbus; that the city of Columbus is named after the Re-naissance “New World” explorer CHRIST-opher Columbus; that the word Re-naissance means Re-birth; that this Bi-centennial/BIRTH-day Re-turn/RE-BIRTH celebration takes place in the year 2012; and that the year 2012 represents a major synchronistic/Re-current/Re-turn event in Mayan astrology as well. What we then get when we combine all these facts together is a TWIN “Re-naissance LOGOS” that utilizes the WORDs “Columbus Bi-centennial” to indicate a 2012 BIRTH-day Re-turn for the city of CHRIST-opher Columbus directly corresponding to the singularity of the Mayan 2012 “End Times” prophesy. Here again it is worth Re-stating that the probability of these connections being a random coincidence is a mathematical impossibility. This news, in other words, is paradigmatic. And this example is only the tip of a TITAN-ic sized “Re-naissance LOGOS.”

    To corroborate the sign-ificance of this 2012 Re-birth correlation we find yet another SIGN, another one-to-one correspondence, connected to the Columbus and Bi-centennial WORD combination. In a Twilight Zone meets Family Ties meets John from Cincinnati kind of way, this Fortean-styled proof is hidden in the 1999 Hollywood movie “Bicentennial Man,” produced and directed by–none other than, and who else but–CHRIST-opher Columbus. In a strange twist of fate, although director CHRIST-opher Columbus was born in Pennsylvania, he was raised in the city of Youngstown, Ohio–creating a Columbus to Pennsylvania “Brotherly Love” link that ties into the ARCH-etypal singularity of Johnny APPLE-SEED–another man born in Pennsylvania who reached LEGEND–ary status after moving to Ohio. More on the APPLE-SEED ARCH-etype later.

    If it seems a stretch to think there is a legitimate pattern of singularities that links Columbus to a CHRIST Re-turn/Re-BIRTH/Renaissance LOGOS, let’s consider another proof. When we combine the WORDs CHRIST and BIRTH we get the symbol of the CHRIST-child. The obvious Columbus CHRIST-child BIRTH correlation here is the Columbus-based reality television show about child-BIRTH called, “One Born Every Minute,” currently in its second season on the Lifetime channel, filmed at Ohio Health’s new Riverside Methodist McConnell He-ART Hospital maternity ward. The SIGN-ificance of this SIGN is made even more coherent by the fact that the McConnell He-ART Hospital was a project my FATHER, Bob Grundey, as lead ARCH-itect at Karlsberger ARCH-itecture, oversaw the design and development of, and I built a scale model replica/double for (which for me was a singularity because it remains the only ARCH-itectural model I have ever built).

    From the CHRIST-child/BIRTH correspondence proof above we follow the LOGOS pattern from the McConnell He-ART Hospital to the city of WORTHINGTON, Ohio, to WORTHINGTON’s new McConnell ART Center and to John McConnell’s flagship singularity, WORTHINGTON Industries, the nation’s largest independent processor and manufacturer of various STEEL related products.

    For those people unfamiliar with central Ohio, WORTHINGTON is a suburban municipality located directly north of Columbus. More importantly, the city of WORTHINGTON is named after THOMAS WORTHINGTON, the man who is credited with being “The FATHER of Ohio Statehood.” In other WORDS, WORTHINGTON “the FATHER” is to Ohio what CHRIST-opher Columbus is to the CHRIST-child. This is yet another one-to-one correspondence if we keep in mind that the FATHER of the Riverside Methodist McConnell He-ART Hospital, the building my FATHER worked on and the site of the Lifetime reality television show “One born every minute,” is John McConnell, founding FATHER and CEO of the singularity WORTHINGTON Industries.

    From the WORTHINGTON-FATHER singularity of Thomas WORTHINGTON we arrive at another FATHER singularity located in the city of WORTHINGTON, the JOSEPH-inum Pontifical College, the only such Vatican sponsored seminary in North America. This SIGN becomes SIGN-ificant when we realize that the Pope, as head of the Roman Catholic Church, is a metaphor of the FATHER ARCH-etype, establishing yet another symbolic WORTHINGTON-FATHER correspondence. This “2X” FATHER correspondence is also reflected in the fact that the JOSEPH-inum Pontifical College is named after JOSEPH, the FATHER of the biblical CHRIST. So JOSEPH, the FATHER of the biblical CHRIST, and the Pope, the FATHER of the Roman Catholic Church, established in the so-called name of the CHRIST, combine to create the JOSEPH-inum Pontifical College; that the JOSEPH-inum Pontifical College is located in the city of WORTHINGTON, named after Thomas WORTHINGTON, the FATHER of Ohio’s statehood; that John McConnell, the FATHER of WORTHINGTON Industries, is also, as head benefactor, FATHER of the McConnell He-ART Hospital, a building my FATHER helped construct; that the McConell He-ART hospital is the setting for the Lifetime TV series about child-BIRTH called “One Born Every Minute”; and that this series, which is born of multiple FATHER ARCH-etypes, is located in Columbus, a city connected via semiotics to the CHRIST, more or less giving BIRTH to a 2012 CHRIST-child “Renaissance LOGOS.” The symbolism here is unmistakable and, as stated before, the depth of its coherence makes the probability of these connections being a random coincidence a mathematical impossibility. This pattern is real, in other words, and it seems to be trying to tell us all something: What on Earth do you think it could be?

    Post reply from a different source: etheric underground: Project Avalon

    All I know is that there has been thousands of books and docos done on this date
    and not one of them is by the mayans.
    What I do know through the tribe of many colours is that the mayan high chief has recently come down
    to relay that the end of the world is not going to happen, but if people of the planet do not start treating
    mother earth and all her animals and plants with love and respect, then we may lose the opportunity to
    move into ascension with mother earth.
    It means that it is a directive of the creators to see that the heart chakra planet(earth) evolve into her destined beauty.
    It also means that we have a very short window to ascend with her if people remember truly BE LOVE.
    This means a percentage of the human race needs to heighten there vibratory state by connecting to all things
    and very quickly start reversing the way we currently treat the earth and her children. In doing so we have a great opportunity to
    provide enough to pull many of our family and friends with us in to this golden era.

    My reply to etheric underground: Project Avalon

    I couldn’t agree with you more EU. May I suggest you check out my website http://www.darrengrundey.com. to learn about some Commons development business proposals I’ve created that hedge things in that way. If these models of Commons-based organization were replicated, our paradigm would change for the better in a hurry. May I further suggest the SIGN-ificance of this connection is communicated by the fact that the eARTh/heART chakra thing you mentioned brings us back to OHIO and the “Reniassance LOGOS” described above, since Ohio’s state motto is “The HeART of It All!”; the Cleveland-born POP artist singularity Jim Dine, who introduced the Happening into Art’s lexicon, is best known for his iconic paintings of a HEART; the model design for all contemporary megamarkets was the Columbus-based supermarket singularity BIG BEAR-HARTS; and the WORD ART is hidden in the WORD heART, with Columbus’ private art college, CCAD, has a school LOGO/SIGN that is of the WORD ART. The HEART also connects to the number 5, the Hebrew letter Tav and the sephirot Tiphareth, if we we wanted to explore Kabbalastic symbolism. In Sanscrit, however, chakra translates as WHEEL. I won’t get into all the WHEEL symbols linked to Ohio (including the WHEEL of Samsara, the nation’s largest buggy, the number 8, OSU’s Block “O” and the infinity symbol) except to say the symbol of the WHEEL is equal to the SIGN of the rubber tire WHEELS found on cars, and that Akron, Ohio, back in the day, was long branded the “Tire Capitol of the World.” The two biggest tire companies back then were GOODYEAR, the logo of which is the winged scandal of HERMES, and FIRESTONE, which in Kabbala relates to Yesod and the Biblical Foundation Stone. Consider as well that the Foundation Stone is also referred to as the Philosopher’s Stone, with the movie Harry Potter and the Philosophers’ Stone directed by CHRIST-opher Columbus.



    Meta beyond meta. Maybe this is some scheme by the Ohio Tourism Bureau to turn us into the Taos of the Mid-west?




    Darren G.

    It’s worthwhile to note that a chakra is also described as a VORTEX of energy that rotates within the body, hence the WHEEL SIGN-ification. In nonlinear dynamics the metaphor would be VORTICES/WHEELS/chakras are to the body as Strong and Strange Attractor PATTERNS are to the PATTERNS of Chaos visible on the planet. In Chaos Theory these Strong/Strange Attractor PATTERNS correspond to Edward Lorenz’ famous Butterfly Effect illustration, a theory he developed while studying information gathered by the national weather service. In the advanced Vortex Mechanics of Marco Rodin these PATTERNS are called Nested Vortices.

    Seeing that this “RENAISSANCE LOGOS” deals with PATTERNS as proof of its existence, from the VORTEX correspondence PATTERN above we should find coherent relationships tied to Ohio singularities much the same way we connected Ohio-based SIGNS of the HEART and WHEEL to the WORD chakra.

    For instance, the object Marco Rodin uses to symbolize his Nested Vortice concept is a golf ball. This is SIGN-ificant for two main reasons. First, because the modern-day golf ball was invented by Coburn Haskell, in 1898, in Akron, Ohio. Secondly, because from the symbol of the golf ball we move to the central Ohio singularity of Jack “GOLDEN BEAR” (ST.) NICKLAUS and to his DUBLIN-based MASTERS singularity, The MEM-orial Day golf tournament. (The coherence here being the symbol of the CHRIST found in the name Jack NICKLAUS, the MEM-orial CUP symbolism, and the Dublin/Celtic CROSS correspondence).

    From Edward Lorenz’ Buttefly Effect illustration we get both the symbol of the butterfly and the singularity of the National Weather Service. Historically, the National Weather Service is credited as being started in Cincinnati, Ohio, by Professor Cleveland Abbe. The symbol of the butterfly, on the other hand, is more complex, corresponding to various other symbols, including the ARCH-etype of the MonARCH (another FATHER symbol), the color ORANGE and the insect most often associated with change/transformations/Re-turns/Re-births, the MOTH (and from the combination of the MOTH with the color ORANGE to that other element of change, the FLAME).

    From the WORD Mon-ARCHY we arrive at the SIGN of the crown, which includes SIGNS like Cleveland’s KING’s Island Amusement Park (home of the BEAST, KING COBRA and TWIN Racers roller coasters) and basketball phenom Lebron “KING” James (dubbed “The Second Coming” in his debut NIKE ad campaign). Other Ohio KING’s include boxing promoter Don KING, “the KING of COOL” James Dean, “the King of the Cowboys” Roy Rodgers, and the KING of QUEENS, Coretta Scott KING, wife of Martin Luther KING, Jr. (who wasn’t born in Ohio but attended ANTIOCH College in Yellow Springs, Ohio–the same college Rod Serling, creator of THE TWILIGHT ZONE series, attended). My great grandfather on my mother’s side was another Ohio KING singularity, in that he was a one-handed HVAC installer in Toledo, Ohio.

    The ORANGE ARCH-etype is too detailed to deal with here presently, but I will say it involves the state of FLORIDA (leading us to the stolen elections of 2004, when Ohio was tagged “Ground Zero,” and to Richard FLORIDA, one time professor at OSU and author of “Rise of the CREATIVE CLASS”), to the Cleveland BROWNS, the Cincinnati Bengals, the game of FOOT-ball (invented in Akron, Ohio), to the constellation Ophiuchus (FOOT/Galactic Core/2012), and to the circle with a dot in the middle–the alchemical SIGN for GOLD and the SUN (and by coherent extension to the symbol of the Bull’s EYE, the number Zero and the letter”O” ).

    The MOTH refers to several things, the first of which is the Ohio born MOTHman Prophesy, the LEGEND of which both a book and a movie were made.

    To be continued…



    Please never stop.

    The second Ohio-MOTH SIGN-ifier is more cryptic, hidden within several details of the blockbuster movie “Silence of the LAMB.” The basic plot of “Silence of the LAMB” involves a FBI agent who is trying to track down a serial killer named Buffalo Bill. In the movie Buffalo Bill is played by Ohio-born actor, Ted Levine, whereas Buffalo Bill the movie character is from Belvedere, Ohio. If that’s not coherent enough, consider the fact that the cannibal-like appetite of Buffalo Bill most closely mimics the real life serial killer Jeffrey Dahlmer, who grew up in Bath, Ohio and attended the Ohio State University before failing out his freshman year.

    In the movie “Silence of the LAMB,” one of the SIGN-ature characteristics of Buffalo Bill, the clue that ultimately gave him away, was a rare MOTH larva found lodged in the throat of one of his early victims. The MOTH in question is called a Death’s-head Hawk-MOTH. What’s curious about this MOTH, what ties it to Ohio, is the iconic MOTH symbol used to represent it on the memorable “Silence of the Lamb” movie poster. If one studies the MOTH from the movie poster, one will recognize that the body of the MOTH looks like a human skull (hence the name Death’s-head HawkMOTH); yet, upon even closer inspection, one will discover that the form of the skull is actually an illusion created by various postures of seven nude women. The inspiration for this GESTALT image was a photograph called, In Voluptas Mors, by the Surrealist artist Salvador Dali. From Salvador Dali the correspondence takes us to the Salvador Dali Museum, which although it is presently located in St. Petersburg, FLORIDA (keeping in mind that FLORIDA is part of the ORANGE alignment), the original Dali museum that housed the Eleanor and Reynolds Morse collection was located in Beachwood/Cleveland, Ohio, near where the Morses lived. Being an artist and having been to the Dali Museum myself, easily one of the most memorable paintings from this museum is Dali’s epic “The DISCOVERY of America by CHRIST-opher Columbus,” commissioned for the 1959 opening of George Huntington Hartford II’s Museum Gallery of Modern Art, located on Columbus Circle in New York City.

    There is one more piece of coherence in the form of a parallel construction that ties together the “Silence of the LAMB” movie to the MOTHman PROPHESY singularity. In “Silence of the LAMB,” the FBI agent in charge of tracking down Buffalo Bill is Clarice Starling, played by actress Jodie FOSTER. The character Clarice is from West Virginia. As was previously disclosed, the character Buffalo Bill was from Belvedere, Ohio. The connection between these two involves the SIGN/symbol of the Death’s-head HawkMOTH and the fact that the real-life MOTHman Prophesy correspondence deals with the 1967 collapse of the SILVER BRIDGE over the Ohio River, a BRIDGE that connected together Point Pleasant, West Virginia to Kanauga, Ohio. This event, which took place a week before CHRIST-mas, became known as the MOTHman Prophesy because of the alleged sightings of a large, winged creature that seemed to hover near the BRIDGE prior to its collapse.

    Strangely, this necromancy points to a recent BIRTH/death SIGN that occurred in a greenhouse GARDEN on the campus of The Ohio State University in April of 2011–the flowering of a plant species called TITAN Arnum, more commonly referred to as a “Corpse Flower.” The flower is a singularity in that it is rare, is on the verge of extinction, and is the world’s largest unbranched inflorescence in the world. In size and shape the “Corpse Flower” looks like a cross between Seymore, the talking plant from the musical Little Shop of Horrors, and the pods from Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The “Corpse Flower” gets its name from the rotting flesh smell it gives off when it blooms.

    With all the BIRTH/death/REBIRTH coherence encoded within the movie “Silence of the LAMB,” and to the PATTERN of BIRTH/death/REBIRTH correspondence/associations it creates, it is safe to assume something important is trying to be revealed through this source material; something otherwise hidden, not talked about, or kept in “silence.” To discover what this is, we Re-turn to the actress Jodie FOSTER and to a few of the other movie roles she has starred in the past.

    The real question is, what do you think about SB5?



    Gamera is friend to all children, but Mothra is sweet on those two fairies.


    Darren G.

    I think SB5 is a shady political maneuver to break down the organizational base of the Democratic Party and the first step in an overt attempt to privatize and otherwise loot Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. That is assuming these programs haven’t already been looted, in which case the whole privatization push is just one big cover-up. The idea that a private company can be in charge of the social welfare is oxymoronic. Private corporations have a legal obligation to maximize profits and externalize costs, thus placing profits above the welfare of the people (and the environment). Unions unfortunately have not evolved over the years, each separate union having become more separated and self-centered from one another instead of more integrated in their solidarity with one another, and as a result have lost touch with their roots, the basis of which is the development and maintenance of the Commons. Ultimately it is the privatization of the last parcel of Commons we still have left, namely Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, that SB5 is after. Busting the union is just a means to achieve that dubious goal.

    Seeds of Change: Project #1

    Develop an off-the-grid, self-sustaining International Youth Hostel on the fair grounds parking lot in proximity to the Ohio Historical Center’s Ohio Village and the State Highway Patrol Headquarters.

    Development would include a number of Cob House and Earthship construction “condo units” designed for cooperative group living.

    A larger “Underground Commons” unit will function as a coop kitchen and café, a meeting room, and a mini-museum dedicated to documenting the process of this Commons project.

    To accommodate for the displaced parking spaces, a several story parking garage will need to be constructed. This structure will function as a mixed-use space to accommodate parking and serve as the hostel’s YMCA-styled changing room and wash facility. Rainwater from the roof will feed this system, which can be further filtered if necessary.

    Additionally, several solar powered, relatively “large-scale” dehumidifiers will be embedded in this structure, or potentially elsewhere on the compound’s grounds, to serve as potable water for drinking and cooking.

    In the evening, the uppermost parking level will serve as a sheltered “cot city” for the homeless. This floor will also have its own wash area. People staying in this homeless shelter will be required to be in there at a certain time, leave by a certain time, remain within the designated area the entire time, and must not loiter anywhere on fair grounds anytime in between.

    The grounds of the compound will be patrolled by cadets as part of a police mentorship program.

    The entire compound will be powered by a single wind turbine, with excess energy harnessed by fly-wheel batteries and/or added to the energy grid to help offset energy costs for the Ohio Historical Center.

    Material for Cob House and Earthship condo construction will be collected recycling materials supplemented by materials purchased by funds raised from donation drive.

    Labor for construction of condos will be volunteer-based.

    Labor for construction of Underground Commons and parking garage will be donated/organized by applicable labor unions. Materials will be donated by local construction corporations.

    Construction oversight will be donated by the Army Corpse of Engineers.

    Design oversight of facilities will be donated by the Columbus Branch of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

    Design of facilities will be part of an in-state collegiate design competition held at the Columbus Convention Center with best design voted on by the public.

    A not-for-profit Commons development trust fund will need to be established to help get this project, the nation’s first self-sustainable International Youth Hostel, up and running; assuming, that is, the Ohio Historical Society is unable to manage the wherewithal or initiate to get this project done on its own.
