Well I was wandering along the banks of the river
When seven fat cows came out of the Nile (uh huh)
And right behind these healthy animals
Came seven more cows skinny and vile (uh huh)
Well the thin cows ate the fat cows which I
Thought would do them good (uh huh)
But it didn't make them fatter
Like such a monster supper should

Ceres, the Roman equivalent of Demeter, Goddess of Agriculture, was one of the children of Saturn who, when roused to ire, would inflict her wrath upon the Earth through famine - so no surprises on the publication of the discovery of water on Ceres and that she may be an ocean world in our Green Phase. Beyond aesthetics it seems that the purpose of all the ''set dressing'' for the various phases is to synchronise or calibrate global consciousness alongside bedecking the altar (be that on Earth or in space) with the correct correspondences for theurgic propitiation. Blending the symbol of water with a corn goddess do we get fertiles fields or fried and flooded ones? Is there enough water for life on Ceres, or is there too damn much? Is there life on Ceres???
The clean plate initiative is another propaganda piece, similar in intent to the UK's anti-obesity drive, which hopes to make starvation a group health effort to get in shape for the nation. Both of China's river valleys have suffered extensive flooding, and the geopolitical situation is making importing food a bit more arduous. If everyone is approaching a similar situation who are you going to import it from anyway???
Iowa has had 43% of its grain and soybean crops flattened by one of this year's insane winds - the derecho. I don't know whether this means the crops are ruined or whether something can be salvaged, I'm not exactly a farmer, although I have fixed a yucca in a similar situation, but I am hoping that American officials listened to Joseph and stockpiled for at least 7 harsh years.
A village in India, ravaged by lilifluenza, heatwave, famine, drought and a man covered in locusts running down the dusty street screaming was one of the most visceral images of 2020 so far for me, a forsaken place where all the various demonic winds of the quarters gathered as one. Now these poor people can add monsoon floods to the mix. National Geographic deep dives into India's various problems with water supply (too little and too much) and highlights why the Earth's second most populous nation is unlikely to scrape through this year without experiencing similar problems to everyone else with food security.
Food left standing after floods, fire, winds and worker shortages are ravaged by locusts, a situation which Bayer refers to as a living nightmare and is helping out with by providing incredible quantities of delicious poison, i.e. how
necromancers they deal with most situations.
To match with the epic apocalypses of the rest of the world the UK has a problem with one of its sandwich factories, coincidentally belonging to a company called Greencore. To quote the late, great Bill Hicks ''this is Hobbiton and I am Bilbo Hicks''. Just like the UK doesn't have crime like America has crime so we starve and suffer in our own unique way. No more sandwiches???? True Doom. Mouse plague destroy crops in Germany? Cute doom. I do love Europe. In all seriousness the crushing losses to the economy, with the UK topping the pile at 20% damage, food insecurity is going to be a big problem for a lot of europeans - financial supply being the problem if not physical supply as well.
Although the technology to make algae food (and biofuel) has been with us for a while now, genetically modifying tobacco using algae and extending that to other plants to reduce water consumption, or at least reporting on it, meets with the predictions that algae would be involved/highlighted in the Green Phase. In the eyes of the destructive team - if its Green, it's on the Altar. Of course, in the new normal we are going to see lots of innovations in the food sector, providing us with a variety of different types of reconstituted gruel with colourings. As my sister reminded me, a lot of Zoomers are already socially conditioned to favour shakes and bars (huel, manna, soylent, etc) as meals so they can adjust easily to the new carbohydrate regime - thank the Lord, our Purifying King, for these mercies.
We are now in the middle of the Green Phase, and I warned that the ''twist'' in this phase, is the steady realisation that all the efforts of the environmentalists are for nought because we have already long since totally run out of time. Green Spirits are sent down the ladder for sacrifice. I thought ''they'' might actually tell us more directly, or have a big event that draws focus at this moment. Arguably this event was the attack on Lebanon - a flag with a green sacred tree destroyed by *fertilizer* and destroying a port (water) that supplies 80% of the country's food - it feels like a perfect metaphor for the planet but I can't say for sure and it might be too clever for some. Although I think cleverness may have some impact on the extent of the oomph of the individual battery as they plug into the theatrical experience and so impacting a smaller demographic of cleverer ones may have a greater impact in terms of theurgic astral mechanics. Maybe that is something to do with the quality of the Ruach of that individual. I am not exactly that kind of scientist, and have not been party to exactly those kind of meetings, so I can't say for sure. I don't know what preparations individual countries have done for a long spell of bad harvests but I have a feeling the food crisis will intensify and we will be witness to a situation that we cannot do anything about. I am not exactly an agricultural official, but I worked in those offices once and its not exactly well - let's say, organised? In the past it has been possible to send aid to places hit by starvation and a great deal of good spirits were generated from this activity - live aid. The current climate will mean that all countries will tighten their food exports and the amount of food available for such aid. If they force us to witness this horror many will be hit with a profound sense of powerlessness and despair and dread that it is coming for them next. It's on the back of these kind of events that the case for geoengineering et al will continue to be built and I do expect the food carnage to inspire some kind of orchestrated global response if it will, in the end, remain inadequate. Although the vast majority of the predictions for the green phase have come true I still expect this subject to be broached more publicly before the next six weeks are out and there is still time for a very weird green themed event.
When people call on God do they really know who they mean? I know who Christ is and respect all people who come truthfully from this place but God... is mysterious at best. Buddha, the happy portly smiley one, the cheerful Hindu boys and girls, I know them too, but God? Who is he? For many on the pantheistic approach God is equivalent to Nature, both Earthly and Universal and is often represented as female, Ceres, Nuit, etc. This Goddess, when angry, and I might add insufficiently propitiated, punishes humankind as above. Historically the concept of God as Skybeard is fairly equivalent to Zeus or Enlil so this God of ours has a propensity to purify the Earth or unleash the demons from time to time when it has gotten... - well, let's just say - a bit decadent. I have vegans who lecture me on a variety of ethical living styles and behaviours who have fleets of dogs, the combined meat footprint of which absolutely dwarfs my own fairly meagre consumption. I have been lectured on the carbon imprint of my, again meagre, milk use by part of the Washington Woke who regularly flew to Nepal to ''help the people'' (and collect photo opportunities). These followed each other as paragraphs before my unbelieving ears. The madness of the fevered ego. I have used public transport my whole life, have no kids and have very infrequently flown... I really hope these people are doing some sort of mathematics, employing some sort of logic, when they hurl around their polemics. When looking for the sinners, witchunters of all kinds (including witches, it seems, perversely) should make sure that they have truly ruled themselves out. They may come to the conclusion that they can only do that by truly ruling themselves out. May Christ compel them.
Well I was standing doing nothing in a field out of town
When I saw seven beautiful ears of corn
They were ripe, they were golden, and
You've guessed it
Right behind them came seven other ears,
Tattered and torn (uh huh)
Well the bad corn ate the good corn
They came up behind yes they did
Now Joseph, here's the punchline
It's really gonna blow your mind
