THE GOLDEN DAWN TREE OF LIFE
COLOUR - GENERAL NOTES
This theory originates in the work of Chris Knowles and the Secret Sun blog where some of his research threw light on the great deal of orange being used in movies, art, etc in 2017. Based on the standard colour usage of the Golden Dawn Qabalah (shown above) I predicted a change of colour, to purple, in 2018. When this happened I began to back check that unifying theory by looking at movie releases over the last decade. Scrolling through this post will give you a visual taste of the theory although I am endeavouring to provide supporting essays and analysis of other material.
If colours are being used as ritual elements in movies according to the diagram above they will be seen in cover art/marketing and/or set, costume, lighting, colour grading and key prop item. Where colour is not present in cover-art/costume it is often to do with the iconic nature of the character's costume so this mainly affects Marvel. It might be the case that 80% of movies ''lands'' on target in the right year and the 20% that misses the ''year'' is if production/release is held up or delayed sometimes for an Oscar - ''La La Land'' might be an example of this. The following list is not exhaustive and could be a demonstration of confirmation bias although the evidence does seem stronger for the theory than not.
I have included what I have on the alchemical metals so far - the theory here would be that the metal extracted represents the ''virtue'' of the film although in some situations it might actually be the physical metal that is shown or a key object made from the metal. Although the post begins with 2013 I will detail 2010 - 2012 at the end of the post.

2010 - 2012
2010 - 2012 present a challenge when exploring this theory. I believe that whoever is behind this unifying colour project gradually gained power and influence in uniting studios behind this idea over those years. I believe the project began in 2010 with the movie Inception. The problem when looking at the white, grey and black which are the colours associated with 2010 - 2012 are that these often go together in black and white, grey scale, etc. While I don't think the colours of the three years were merged in this way, and in 2012 certainly the pallette was ''black'', its just worth acknowledging that right out of the gate. I will go in reverse order now from 2012 - 2010.

There were two possible logical conclusions to this descent down the Tree of Life in 2020 we would a) switch and begin to ascend with a return to Kether in 2029 or b) we would continue to descend and enter the Inverted Tree of Hell, otherwise known as the Qliphoth. I think you know by now how that one turned out.
The cult movie meta-theory explores the question of how are the Qliphothic correspondences structured through the year. With 2020, the 4 act structure implicit in the fourfold division of Malkuth was used, but, crucially, in reverse. In 2021 we began our study with the idea that the inverted (Qliphothic) Yesodian would be unstructured. Through mixed methods we discovered the idea that the years were being structured literally along the lines of cult movies. If you are encountering this page for the first time and wondering what is going on with the Rocky Horror obsession see below. If you are skeptical now its worth watching til the end of this year how detailed-oriented the structuring is and then maybe think about getting aboard in 2022's A Clockwork Orange. If we are following the same rules as 2021 then the opening tableau will be clear within the first week or so (this is a working theory and subject to change if we discover a new aspect that we were unaware of before).
