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).
Thank you for posting this! You've got my attention. SyncraReplyDelete

Several Dark Conclusions and Intriguing Meta-theoriesReplyDelete
Blogos -- this post is dated December 16, 2018, but in the DARK CONCLUSIONS section, referring to the possibility we would continue to descend and enter the Inverted Tree of Hell AKA the Qliphoth, you say: "I think you know by now how that one turned out."ReplyDelete
Does that mean you editied this piece after 2020?
Yes I've added the dark conclusions and cult movie theory at the bottom very recently as this page is acting as a central source for other people who are trying to share the overall idea. I also had to edit this post when I created a new article about one of the movies in it just to put the hyperlink in so it has been updated with those links between 2019-2020. What is still missing is the 2019 information and films - such as Joker & Once Upon a Time that I have written. My reason for this is that I knew it was going to be more complex both to stage those colours and to explain to someone who has very little experience of QBL. When I get the time (hopefully soon) I will do a fresh post on this and summarise what I found out about this as well.ReplyDelete
Obviously as you can see from the writing still at the beginning and if you have read my other work here I was very skeptical about this at the beginning and had several layers of ''soft hypotheses'' (i.e. that this was a marketing synergy thing) to work through first. I certainly did not want to conclude what I eventually did.
Feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer.
These two are probably worth contrasting
Thank you I will read those.Delete
I went back to Joker in 2020 to do a better more complete essay but there is an earlier less complete one that unfortunately has more hits.Delete
So in 2019 the (Jungian) alchemical process was driven forwards towards ''individuation''. You can argue that ''selfie culture'' peaks in that year. When the process was ran in reverse in 2020 (to de-individuate) selfies became increasingly frowned upon as crass, vulgar etc and people began to get swallowed back up into ''herd mentality''. I talk about this in the early 2020 posts called the de-reddening, or the ''dreadening''.
Thank you for your thoughtful response. Questions...I mean...I have so many questions...I do not even know where to begin. This "thing" is immense. Your work here is immense -- it's truly amazing. I am very new to your blog and still trying to get a handle on the ideas. I've been reading Secret Sun blog for a little while and yours and Chris's blogs are incredible. I'm especially interested in reading your pre and post 2020 entries to see how you reacted to what unfolded (and continues to unfold), the timely virus. There appears to be a large-scale global operation being enacted, and it was signposted and counted down in the years up to 2020. And the ramifications of that are mindblowing, since it's hard to grasp the enormity of what is going on.ReplyDelete
The 2017 Asterix comic book. The masked villain was named Coronavirus. What are the chances: https://i.imgur.com/kgLSb1b.png
There is a lot of background I -- and I suspect other new readers -- are missing when first encountering your blog. I think you mentioned Dion Fortune's The Mystical Qabalah on another page. Do you recommend that book as a way to gain background knowledge so as to more fully understand your writing? (If any other QBL book you recommend please let me know.) So many questions buzzing in my head. But I am intent on trying to understand what is going on. Thanks again.
MQ is a good beginner book on the system that is behind this, I would imagine Nolan knows and is familiar with it. The Diagram above is just the least complex Golden Dawn standard colours. To be fair to them they may be using the whole four decks of colours, things like the Emperor Scale, etc and even the flashing colours, but the more baroque it is the more difficult it is to explain this to a passerby. There are rabbit holes like that out there and also lots of rabbit holes in the paths I expect for people to fall into. I decided to keep it fairly simple (from my POV) but not too simple. If you want to learn you still have to work which is fair enough price to pay.Delete
Magick in Theory and Practice by Aleister Crowley to keep the Crowleyana in your life to an absolute minimum but the more you read the more you will see the imprint of Crowleyanity.
Further in than that you will probably need actual Kabbalah which you have to study for a long time, this is genuinely a really difficult and unforgiving task that wipes out most aspirants. It really transforms the tools in the hands of your GD types, orders of magnitude more powerful. & I am very very far from an expert. Even further in and I say this with almost sigil like caveats you probably need something like Enochian. This is way beyond me.
Yes basically from 2012 I've been one of a few alchemy metaphysics blogs, but there is around 15 (or 10000) years of work before that as well. I was kind of minding my own business up to my own metaphysical escapades, etc when I blundered on to this after one of Chris's observations in 2017. I've been as surprised as anyone by how the Call of Cthulhu (the siren work he observed but also *all* the Lovecraftian work in TV/film in 2018-2020) has unfolded.
Lovecraft is a favourite of chaos magicians after all.
Well that is quite a thing to blunder on. It's like discovering an immense secret city somewhere on earth that has been hiding in plain sight the entire time. As I say, I'm new to your blog, but I am not new to the idea that there is a deeply secretive cabal that seems to be organizing events behind the scenes. For many years there seemed to be subtle pointers indicating this to be true. The events of 2020 and the Corona Ritual have (IMO) blown this cover wide open. They must have known this would be the case -- many who suspected them to exist would now have definitive proof. But of course the overwhelming majority remain in the dark. I think it stands to reason that this cabal has big plans for this 2020-30 decade. This is the decade they intend to transform society and indeed humanity. Bending reality to their will. And to do so requires immense power and a painstaking attention to detail. Which brings me back to your work, which appears to have uncovered an enormous ritual (or series of interconnected rituals) designed to achieve their goals. There are many aspects to this, and one I find interesting is the complex mechanics of pulling off something of this magnitude and keeping it on track and on time. I think this is (one area) where the Magick and occult comes in. Afterall, there *has* to be some mechanism to "broadcast" timelines to the many involved (almost all of whom will not know each other). This might be connected to your Unifying Colour Theory.ReplyDelete
Hey I completely agree that part of what is going on is intricate signalling to each other for timekeeping, its partially the equivalent of raising flags on ships, i.e. where signals intelligence was first born. Go back a little further and you get to Dee (the original ''007''...), Kelley, Shakespeare's etc involvement with Walsingham (the original M) and the early days of interstate espionage where crytography merges seamlessly with the occult. We once put a line in the alchemist Dyer's mouth: ''I was that at the beginning, crystal gazing, angel magic, chemtrails...'' ;-)Delete
But the signals have multiple purposes and are not only out there to make sure everything stays synchronised, the signals have affects to synchronise the unwitting as well as the witting. That's why a lot of folk will actually be dressed for ACO just before it hits them.
Cabin in the Woods (grey, Chokmah - 2011) is worth paying attention to as it is a look from the perspective of industrialized ritual theurgic sacrifice. In this sense ''the show'' which is behind the signals, whether it is Rocky Horror or ACO, is also meant as propitiation. Both in 2020 and 2021 when Saturn has been in strong positions (Capricorn then Aquarius) we have had to make a great deal sacrifices *for* the old, which Saturn rules over.
Squid Game has effectively the same ending message, Saturn is driving the Squid Game. A more humorous look at this level of the signals might be R&M's ''Show Me What You Got!''
