Galactic alignments, chaos, revelation......sounds like the the Return of the Great Old Ones from the Cthulhu Mythos.
That is not dead which can eternal lie.
And with strange æons even death may die
from the fictional Necronomicon of H.P. Lovecraft
Then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men
shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and
all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom
The Mythos is supposed to be fiction, but a number of real life eerie parallels like:
Nan Madol at the island Pohnpei, en.wikipedia.org...
By far the scariest one is The Bloop: en.wikipedia.org...
there is no known animal that could have produced the sound. If it is an animal, it would have to be, reportedly, much larger than even a Blue
Whale, according to scientists who have studied the phenomenon.
Cthulhu? Probably better known to the Pacific Islanders as the great Squid
godof the underworld and magic, known as Tangaroa(Maori), Tagaloa(Samoans), Kanaloa(Hawaii), Takaroa, Ta'aroa(Tahiti), Tana'oa, Taka'oa, Tangaloa
(Tonga) and Tagroa Siria. en.wikipedia.org...
Legends state that he became the leader of the first group of spirits "spit out" by the gods. In time, he led them in a rebellion in which
the spirits were defeated by the gods and as punishment were thrown in the Underworld.
For more creepiness, check The Eye of Kanaloa, the Seal or Sigil of the great squid god. www.weddings-kauai.com...
Even weirder is that a number of New Age groups have jumped on a bandwagon to give a revised vision of the squid god from god of magic and dweller in
The Hidden, to a positive healing energy deity.
So should I even bring up the bit about the Leviathan and its seven heads(sound like tentacles)and other fun universal parallels from other cultures.
I think I'll pass on the sadomasochist holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.
Kind of reminds me of the video of the captain's log from the film Event Horizon.
All seems abit Synchronous, even that crazy horror film.
Edit: Some more parallels: Coincidence or Synchronicity? You decide.
Aleister Crowely's Star/Seal of Babalon, www.nachtkabarett.com...
Compare to the Eye of Kanaloa. I could even get into Chronozon and Cthulhu but that is for another day, R'lyeh and the City of the Pyramids, etc.
Some very creepy parallels. I think it points to some dark archetypes and knowledge(Qlipoth and Daath) has been tapped by fictional writers and
