I think, in a metaphysical sense, THEY Ride.
Well said Agarta.
I find that line of reasoning very compelling. The idea that, no matter how it came about, if people are taking it as a sign then it has become a
sign and maybe something not to be lightly brushed aside. In that spirit I enjoin this counterpoint.
I always thought the important thing to know about the horsemen was their name. Do we know the name of this horseman? The name would tell us a
little more about them.
Consider it this way. I write a book about the entire history of famine. Would the Sendai Tsunami appear anywhere in it? Or I write a book about
the entire history disease, is this where it should appear. Could it be war, or death.
Maybe, maybe not.
But in the entire arch of human existence I don't think this event would even appear as a footnote, in the life story of any of these horsemen.
So that only leave forward looking, or prophecy, as the reflection in the lens doesn't fit into any kind of a continuous narrative from a historical
perspective on any of the named horsemen.
And in that sense what you suggest is that the horseman in Cairo was the beginning of a chain of events. And that this reflection in Japan, too, is
the beginning of a chain of events.
On those grounds, I hear you. To use the old 70's term, I dig what you're sayin. But, and now here is where I disagree.
The events in Cairo were triggered by someone immolating themselves. Just as the turn of fate in Vietnam was triggered by a monk immolating them
self. So, my feeling is that in the future when the history is written, the path of self immolation will be presented as having a cause and effect
chain. Not lens flare. And even then, it will require a third one, to set the complete pattern.
