It’s both National Pig Day, AND it’s concurrently National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, in these United States.

To start, one is not entirely sure why it is that our culture ever abandoned the paper grocery bag in favor of the plastic ones, but I have my suspicions that something inhuman was involved with the decision.

I remember the transition… when the paper grocery bag was used as the core and a plastic bag as the outer shell… sometime during the late 1980’s. Paper bags, which made for a fine series of secondary uses such as school book covers and drawing paper, were phased out entirely by the 1990’s. Today, we can’t get rid of the things. Given the nature of the recycling industry, which is always desperately seeking new customers for paper pulp and the like, wouldn’t it make a bit of sense for our elected officials to embrace the return of biodegradable paper bags made from recycled cardboard and paper? Wouldn’t that enrich their constituents and donors in the waste handling industry, nourish the recycling economy, and help end the plague of flyaway plastic carrier bags? This used to be an industry absolutely owned top to bottom by the Orthodox Jews of Brooklyn, incidentally, rather than foreign plastics factories. The old brown paper bags would just melt away in the rain, you may recall, whereas the somewhat immortal plastic ones have become wind blown nuisances.

I’m talking to you Simcha Felder, or @NYSenatorFelder, if you like. I’m watching you, since you were opposed to doing away with the plastic ones, as to what your solution is to this problem.

Speaking of watching – that all knowing thing which cannot possibly exist in the cupola of LIC’s Sapphire Megalith, which stares down upon the world of men through its three lobed burning eye, has been on my mind of late. It does not breathe, nor sleep. “Too big to fail” is how occultists might refer to it, but all that one can say confidentially about it cannot be repeated in open parlance for fear of angering its global army of mortal acolytes. Anarchists and regulators have attempted to control or destroy it over the two and change centuries after the thing first revealed itself in 1812, but it is beyond the power of mortal man to do anything but annoy the thing in the megalith.

There are occult constructs which might attempt to explain it. Its material origins lie with the Astor family, but the modern incarnation is strictly the work of the Rockefellers. There comes a moment in an Oligarch’s life when they ask “is this all there is?” and the path to perfidy opens before them. Just as Dr. Dee found his place beside the throne of England, and Cagliostro found himself in elevated positions in both Papal Rome and Versailles, the idyll of the wealthy often leads to occultism and the harnessing of “things” better left unknown.

Famously, the Sapphire Megalith of Long Island City encompasses 54 stories. Four of those floors are below the ground, 50 above. Rumor has it that there are unacknowleged levels which extend below the ground, so is it “as above, so below”? The Jewish Pentateuch (or Torah) is divided into 54 weekly sections. There are 54 volumes in the the Buddhist Tripitaka, and the word wisdom appears some 54 times in the New Testament of the Christians. In the I Ching, the number 54 is indicated via the Kwei Mei hexagram, indicating that (under the conditions which it denotes) any action undertaken will be evil, and in no way advantageous.

The inhuman thing which lurks within the cupola of the Sapphire Megalith of Long Island City would have no time for any of this mortal occultist claptrap, of course, if it actually existed.

  1. What about Studio 54?

    • It’s 2 x 3 cubed so probably was a front for the Pythagoreans.

  2. 54
    Well, ok.

    54 is one fourth of 216 which is more interesting a number as it’s 72 times 3, or 6 x 6 x 6 (more evil than 54, three numbers one less than 7) or the product of 2 cubed times 3 cubed as well as the smallest product which can be obtained from a 3 x 3 multiplicative magic square.

    And if one were to take the number of cubes in a three dimensional tesseract in cruciform (8 in all), stack the three cruciforms together (as above so below), and assign a 3 x 3 magic square to each of the 24 cubes therein (as a Harshad number- 216 divided by 9) one obtains 216 numbers, supposedly the number of God or the Trinity covered by 72 veils of light and darkness or the 72 secret names with God’s shadow expressed as 6 x 6 x 6, within- If one could find the correct algorithm. Quite a few permutations in the matrices.

    Also of note: If 666 is number of the Antichrist, then that would then make the 333 the number of the Semi-Christ or 1/8th of God. Hmmmm…

    • Oh, sorry, 1/8th of God would be the Octal-Christ. Don’t rat me out to the Church please. I have enough problems with them already.
