All 4 bear some resemblance to a face
The Rus poster for this film YesMan with JC flinging hissel' off the BRIDGE tied, wisely, to a red bungee CORD. Its unwinding spiral-tunality [ motion = spiralspin] had me thinking that 9months after conception its JUUUUUMMMMMMMP!!!
Only that jUMpBILICAL CHORD [ very placent mewsic] saves one from going to far. In earlier attempts at humanity the female plumped for the umbilical cord over the idea of an organic parachute with the requisite 'free-fall' height proving a birth/bridge too far.
Note the poster has DA in Azbuka , the D and A will characterize this missive.
Via Tarot the D-Tower acts as resistance to the action of Aleph-Fool, thus 'Yes' sets up its own resistance to itself. Y-E-S - The SY of SYnchromYSticism evoloving from whirling E-vents. YS-YS = SY-SY , while time - 'nchrom'- beats between.
Jimbo displays the UMBELICAL CHORD of the Fool card, the OPEN MOUTH [ de rigeur in Egyptian funerals] of the Tower card, the OUTSTRETDHED ARMS of the Hanging Man and the LEGS TOGETHER of the Priestess.
Before 'disem-BELLY-BARKing' from the womb and / or Cosmic Egg we find the umbilical/bungee rope coiled out our feet, and this , visually, reminded me of the FOOL , Card 1 , of The Book of Thoth, where we see him enmeshed in a mortal COIL. The Fool itself has the similar ' go for it' nature that most will have before a bungee-jump, as well as the 'madcap' nature of Mr.Carrey.
Umbelical has its root in the Greek for 'belly-button/navel' - OMPHALOS. Humans have a 'red' umbilical chord for mother to child interconneXion . I give it red for the blood . The silver umbilical chord gets cited as the connector in astral projection. They seemed to resonate with Dorothy Gale's slippers - silver in the book, red in the film.
Card 1 - The Fool jumps out - 3MERGEncy [ or 33ERG-NC]
An alternative view of this birthing-bungeejumping we find in the>> 4th CARD - TOWER, that corresponds to hebrew character D. This card = the resistance due to the movement of the ALEF-FOOL. In Frieda-Harris' image we see the geometric figures jumping from the D-umb-struck Tower - T and D are the hard and soft elements of the 'same' sound : as such we can play with word spelling.
Death and Teth[er] , Die and Tie - this interspell overlap gives an idea that Death = a kind of Tether, it 'ties' us to some 'jump-off' point/eVent. If the umbilical chord = Tether , then within the womb we exist in Death. We are still 'tied'.
The Tower motif = the result of the Fool bursting out. The Hanging Man = the Fool further on, and resonated with the Heath ledger JOKER who gets captured 'hanging around'
D = 4 [ Tower] , M = 40 [Hanging Man - 13th Card]. As the Fools jump from the Tower they still have a tether to the very 'heart' of their life-death. Here the Hanging man resonates Jim Carrey on the poster, except Jim's does Y-shape while the Hanging Man sports a 4 and a 2 [ legs and arms], and [ not seen it] but the film deals with those aspects of character deep within that require change while threatening to 'destroy [ It's just a test, Roy] us completely.
Barack takes the reigns as 44th President some time soon
The hebrew letters for these card = DM which = 44 = 'blood' . If one adds the Fool , the letter A, then we get ADM , and we may allude , wistfully, to the Garden of Eden [ GN-ODN = 53-124 = 177]. GN means 'garden' and 'gene' in Hebrew
Descending deeper and further all illusions fall away, the gremlins hanging grimly onto the fuselage get unpicked and flung off as the psychic speed increases.............now the fuselage falls away, yet somehow the descent continues...
The last of the Hebrew characters enumerating 4s = Th. The Final letter = 400, The high Priestess = the Final card, the Veil , and with D and M we get 444. For the chemical warriors we also get DMTh , somewhat similar to the mind-altering haloosinagen, thus the bungee - rope has turned into a snakey slither-slider
CATCH - 22 !
The 22nd Card
Like the camel said to the richman " let go, if u wanna pass through the veil". And they all descended , or flew threw time, to meet the High Priestess. She stood, and we all cheered, we had made it , let go of everything. The Priestess drew back the veils, and then ripped them off the rail, 7 in all. Of a great length, and a tensile strength that defied physics, she handed one to each of us.
We inquired as to why she had given them to us she replied [ somewhat like Queenie in Blackadder] :
" Veilth make bwilliant bungee-wopeth. Not whaleth thilly. Who'th for a wapid deathscent? Last one there'th an Isissy!!'
- It appears BUN [inthe oven] GEE JUmping offers a few variants>
added by ACCIDENTAL ALCHEMIST [ via comments]:
Very similar to a catapult, but they have solved the problem of running into the cord anchor. There are two towers, each with a cord leading to you (in between); the cords are stretched, and you are relased. Since both cords are pulling you, you shoot straight up and then bounce around.
Some places use this technique, but you are strapped into a metal cage, and this requires much stronger bungee cords. One company that offers this is Bungee Adventures; they call it the Ejection Seat.

aferris-once again a brilliant post I am going to have to come back to it-thanks so much for the heads up to Ben Fs site! I am also letting my online friends know that i am experiencing some net connection troubles lately-and i hope they go away but if they do not i will still be around just not as much-The number 44 (Os) number really has me bothered for some reason-I think the PTB might be getting ready to try something soon here in the US and this has me worried-also anyone that has my private email can email anytime-if it takes a bit to get back-it is just because of connection probs-best as always to you and thanks so much for your very thought provoking work!
Cheers Devin -
I've had some 404 problems too.
Sorry - PTB?
Something might interest you -
71 years old architect Jan Kaplicky died on the evening of the 14th. His wife gave birth to thier daughter that morning.
hmmmm & I tried to post last night but couldn't!
Two things must ye know!
First, your take on umbilical bungy cords & life or death was MOST interesting & stirred some further thoughts I have been having on the subject. Is that cover specific to Czechoslovakia, because I had a look at the western style & it just shows JC striking a pose in a field!
secondly, I watched 'Paycheck' last night, didn't realise it was based on a novel by Philip K Dick - the machine that looks into the future on that read 'error 41'
Thoroughly witty ending - good enough for a slap up meal at Mrs Miggins Pie Shop :)
Hi WW - The poster's Russian , I found it a the BLOB. The Czechs have a Latin-Slavic alphabet, a lot different. Half the Slavs have some Azbuka/Cyrillic while the others employ Latin style with lots of diacritics.
Nevertheless its a great poster [ for me] and far better than the 'meadow' poster.
Paychecks a short story, and far far better than the movie - well worth the read. I'll have to check that machine
Couldn't think of any one better for the High Priestess.
The trill of bungee jumping bringing fear and then renewed life.
The umbilical cord delivering sustenance(life) and removing the opposite(fear.)
Giving good removing bad.
O2 in Co2 out.
Both processes are automatic and no thought is required for either except to JUMP or HUMP ;D
Umbilical cords contain stem cells. Also cord blood can be used as bone marrow.
There are many variations of bungee jumping. One to look up is called "twin tower" bungee jumping.
Interesting reciprocation between these two.
Ferris = Ferrous = iron compound
Your illuminating site is magnetic!
How did you pick your name?
Cheers AA , excellent additions, full of strimbling tendrils.
Camels get the HUMP when they have to JUMP through the Neeedles eye.
Aferrismoon has a bit of a lengthy history, will post or write to comments soon.
It = a corrupt spelling of APhRSMVN [ 437, 19x23] - eferesmon , the HEbrew for a PERSIMMON an alteration of Virginia ALGONQUIAN - pessemmins.
There's a bit of boogaloo bangalang with the Hebrew alephbet to get there though.
All good fun
aferris-I hope this comment finds you doing great! I have had a thought I cant get out of my head ever since i saw that Arnie S wants to be prez-some folks think of the way US is becoming as a 2nd or 4rth reich-if-and maybe it is a big if-Arnie does become Prez in 2012-i know that law has to be changed-he would also be an Austrian leading a foreign nation-he has made statements in the past that would leave one to think he admires Hitler also-I do not know if this means anything or not-synch wise-best as always to you!
geez aferris-i am sorry PTB-powers that be-if that is what you are referring to-i hope your 404 probs get better also-mine have for now -but they have a sneaky way of returning:-)thanks also for the Jan Kaplicky info-that sounds like a Czech name-will definitely look it up-sorry i sound so stupid-in addition to normal stupdity-ive been up all night again!
PTB = Powers that be
BTP = Be That Power
great. I've been listening to the Killers new song, "Are We Human or Are We Dancer".
They are currently synch-ridden as mormons, and in the song - which I'm seeing as basically a mormon initiation ritual put to song form - they mention cutting the chord.
Thanks, as always, for the thought provoking / growing / bending stuff.
Perhaps humans have grown enough that they can now cut the chord and not hang on to Mom and Pops no more.
I doubt wheteher its on CEntral Govts agenda at present - Looks like a quick smack ' aka airstrike' ids still the de rigeur form of child control
The attack on Gaza happened with transiting Mars at 0 degree Capricorn (goat) in tight conjunction to transiting Pluto at 1 degree Capricorn/Goat. 0 to 1 degree Capricorn/Cancer/Aries/Libra are considered to be highly critical degrees, meaning that planets that aspect these degrees pack in a punch, so to speak.
Mars, the god of war, happens to be the ruler of Aries.
Mars ruler of Aries and Pluto ruler of Scorpio, together on the Solstice degree of Cap/Goat (ruled by Saturn), make for a very deadly combination . It is THE signature for war based on domination, control and violence.
ps: There was also a new moon that day. The Sun, Moon, Mars and Pluto were all conjunct in Capricorn. Perfect timing...
Worth mentioning, astrologically speaking Capricorn is represented these days by a four legged goat (hence its association with climbing mountains/ladders), but it used to be represented by a mythical creature that is half goat and half fish.
Oh man talk about synching! I didn't know that you mentioned the umbilical and silver cord, until right now (after my heart-shaped coffin post). Amazing how we all cover similar stuff at the same time. A Few Shots, did a heart post too which I also cover in the Heart Shaped Coffin post. We're all reading eachothers minds! Now I have to get back and finish reading this and see what else I'm thinking :D
