Week 60, Illuminatus! online reading group



The Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Five-sided for a reason? 

(This week: "This is Danny Pricefixer," Dorus Horus said, page 627, to page 637, "Into the silence, Hagbard said ... ")

Some notes as we head toward the climax of what's happening in Ingolstadt:

Mr. H.C. Winifred of the Department of Justice, page 629. We've run into him before, doing the bidding of the Illuminati. See Toff's character breakdown. 

" .... and was trying to draw a chalk line," page 630, presumably to keep the creature trapped inside the Pentagon. Here again is metaphor for U.S. foreign policy — endless war to feed Pentagon bloodlust. See Michael Johnson's comment to this post on how the Pentagon levitation was supposed to be an "exorcism." (A pentagram in Goethe's Faust prevents Mephistopheles from leaving a room. )

"This is the dawning of the age of Bavaria," page 631. Apparently sung to the tune of "Age of Aquarius" from "Hair."

DRANG NACH OESTEN, page 631-632. The authors mean "Drang nach Osten," yearning for the east, slogan for Nazi expansion into the East. HEUTE DIE WELT, MORGENS DAS SONNENSYSTEM, page 632. "Today the world, tomorrow the solar system." Alleged slogan of the Bavarian Illuminati.

"Then I started to flip," page 632, beginning of Simon Moon's stream of consciousness.

"And then I understood why Hagbard had given us the acid," page 635, beginning of Mary Lou Servix's stream of consciousness.

"because I started to die," page 632. Mary Lou's reaction to acid is reminiscent of John Lennon's, who wrote "She Said" after taking LSD at a party ("She said, I know what it's like to be dead.")

(Next week: Page 637: In Mad Dog, Texas, John Dillinger and Jim Cartwright looked up from the chess board to Page 654, "Ra Ra Ra." More than 10 pages, but I could not find a convenient stopping place.)

One side of the Pentagon was breached on 9/11. No confirmed instances of anyone trying to draw a chalk line.

pg. 627 Maria Imbrium. http://goo.gl/xn4LA9
pg. 628 "she'll be wearing red pajamas when she comes" linking into the happenings inside the Discordian tent.
pg. 629 "it was assumed that the concussion had killed them" linking to the Cthulhu Mythos element in the book.
pg. 630 "The first place I looked was his own cellar" reminded me of an episode of Better call Saul.
pg. 630. A great summary of what the AMA stand for..."It was the song that..."
pg. 631 "They are coming" links backs to the rantings of a schizophrenic patient earlier in the book.
pg. 632. the number of Our Lady is an hundred and fifty and six? Any clues to what that refers to?
pg. 634 Hagbards gold card reminds me of Dr. Who's psychic paper.
pg. 634 "I'll be damned" riddle answered in Appendix KAPH.
pg. 635 "omnidirectional halo" bringing Bucky into the trip.

156 = 78 x 2. This could suggest the 78 tarot cards and their inversions.

Nice spots, Tom. I could never work out if H.C. Winifred was the same as Winifred.
Good thinking Eric.
Thanks for the reminder Arthur.

pg. 630 "The first place I looked was his own cellar" also brings to mind the question posed in Quantum Psychology: http://goo.gl/LUmS7c excercise 5.

Oz Fritz said...

A fair amount of explicit magick and qabalah in the last part of this weeks reading - not to say this could suggest deliberate disinformation as well.

p.633 - "Osiris with enormous female breasts..." makes an interesting image; this whole paragraph says quite a lot about theurgic magick

The sentence "mourning never ends" on p.633 links to the same sentence on p.635 as a continuation of Simon's visions which conflates "... my God my god my father" (p.633) with Simon seeing his biological father (p.635) who tells him that Kether (God) is in Malkuth then tells him of a vision of the throne of the world with the Rosy Cross and Eye. The next time we hear Simon toward the bottom of p.635 he tells Otto "It's alive" whereupon Otto observes Kether (the point) giving off light and energy in Malkuth - " ... my light and my energy but God's also..." "Omnidirectional halo" seems an accurate characteristic of this kind of experience.

p. 634 "(It doesn't matter in the First Bardo)" this section reads to me as a Bardo sequence too.

Oz Fritz said...

The sequence of Simon seeing a vision of his father who tells him Kether is in Malkuth then telling Otto, "It's alive" whereupon Otto has an experience of Kether in Malkuth seems a literary demonstration of the transfer of baraka.

The number 156 = a key number in Magick for multiple reasons.

From "Illuminatus!": "... for the number of Our Lady is an hundred and fifty and six..."

From "The Book of Lies" chapter 56: "Holy, holy, holy, unto One Hundred and Fifty Six times holy be OUR LADY that rideth upon THE BEAST."
