Horns of Power
First of all, let me apologize for being away for so long. I've been very busy doing nothing, but now I've found my inspiration again, thanks to Michael over at Gosporn and the synchro-flow of the Multiverse.
I've been looking at the movies Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth recently, both written and directed by Guillermo Del Toro (of the Bull?). Both movies pitting Nazis versus supernatural horned beings from the underworld, which is odd considering you would usually expect demons from hell and fascists here on Earth to be allies. Which leads me to think that the purely Catholic notion that horns represent evil is more than a little warped. Maybe they want us to believe that the good guy is actually the bad guy.
Historically and mythologically, horns have always represented power and wisdom. Even the God of the Bible had huge freakin' horns. What, you didn't know?
When Moses came down from the mountain, horns had supposedly grown from his forehead. This was common knowledge up until recently, just look at Michelangelo's sculpture of Moses above, he looks almost exactly like Pan, minus the goat's legs. You see, in modern (intentionally inaccurate) translations of the Bible, it says that light could be seen at the top of the mountain where God was, and that Moses' face was as bright as the sun after having seen the glory of the "All-Mighty". But in the original Hebrew version, it was written horns, not light. Some Cabbalistic illustrators even went half-half, drawing horns of light on Moses' forehead.
So God's horns were so tremendously massive and gigantic that they could be clearly seen with the naked eye by the Hebrew people from the foothill of Mount Sinai. Wow. Reminds me of the expression "Gadzooks!", meaning "God's hooks". Not quite the nails of the cross, but rather God's actual hooks, a further indication of God's true nature and appearance becoming evident in the letters O-Z of Gadzooks. Pan IS "All", after all.
The perpetual 9/11 super-ritual is supposed to be a means by which to contact a higher form of intelligence, perhaps Divine intelligence, and also to free Pan from his self-imposed Abyss (Flight 77 wearing off one of the sides of the Pentagram). Perhaps these are one and the same. As Michael insinuated, Pan might have symbolically broken off his horns Hellboy-style, when the Twin Towers fell into dust in the magical land of OZ. Has God given up his power?
Maybe the super-ritual was a success. Maybe the Illuminati and the rest of the human race DID receive a message from the Creator on 9/11. But, tragically, the message was: "You're on your own. I'm outta here."
