Burton: Jeremy, these are Bio-Warfare maps!Stone: So they are! Defensive, Charlie. Simulations.Leavitt: That's not the point! Wildfire was designed for Germ Warfare. Wildfire and Scoop.Burton: They'd use Scoop to find biological weapons and use Wildfire to develop them!Leavitt: It stinks, Stone!Stone: Don't be an alarmist, Ruth. We don't have evidence for any of this.Burton: Evidence? Look at the map!Stone: Don't be an ass! The map only shows what could be done, in the hands of an enemy.Burton: Enemy?! We did it to ourselves.
The Andromeda Strain (1971)
Pedestrians (circa April 2020): Nanotechnology in the vaccine??? You must be 'avin' a larf mate!
Pedestrians (circa November 2020): Please inject me with nanotech!
THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN
We thought we were doing V for Vendetta, then with a sudden sharp turn for pedestrians, we are doing 28 Days Later. A ''new strain'' has emerged in London and is spreading rapidly turning St. Pancras into Train to Busan. If we're doing Christmas/Pandemic movie crossovers, boys - 28 Days Home Alone - what is next?
- ''It's a Wonderful Death''?
- National Lampoon's Christmas Contagion?
- Trains, Planes and Ambulances?
- Covid Actually?
One thing they never say about me is that I am short on fresh ideas about the anti-Christmas
. The New Strain (VUI20201201*) is, as insinuated
before... The Andromeda Strain
... and what they are not telling you is that this is Good News
. Lockdowns force selective pressure on viruses, causing them to evolve towards more transmissibility but less lethality - this one will be more resilient
as an airborne virus
that can defeat social distancing but that resilience will cost it space
. A virus only has so much room on its ''hard-drive'' for genes so the new strain, the viral daughters
of the mother strain are slowly being bred into being just another background common cold. Unless
''Andromeda'' already existed in a lab somewhere and so was unleashed to bring an end to Lilifluenza
now it has done the economic damage to the carbon economy it was always intended to do. The inflated fear of ''Andromeda'', as well as driving people to stampede, will also drive them to participate in the vaccination program (Gorgoneion
) over the next couple of months whatever the final intentions are for that operation. The movement of London to the new ''Tier 4'' also completes
our Lilithian Quartet of 2020
. It is fascinating to watch the Andromeda Strain movie now, with its colour-coded uniforms
that tell you how infected with Earthly microfauna you are, its satellite-borne
(SCOOP) comet-meteor fragment inciting event
, and the general psychogeography of intellectuals operating and trying to keep their shit together in a complex biohazardous environment.
We mentioned ''Intelligence'' as an aspect of our analysis of the Air theme with Je Suis Professeur i.e. that the element of air is traditionally associated with the intellect - the death of John Le Carre then is another ''de-intelligencing'' and the princess parade of blonde airheads mentioned in previous posts also compliments this process. Yellow-Jacketed Air-head Ultra-Patsy Boris Johnson continues to stagger around wrecking the UK economy, readying the way for ''Shock Doctrine'' style capitalist pillage and ultimately destined to serve as the hate sponge par excellence for the economic aftermath of this Virus. This double whammy of COVID and Brexit looks like it is designed as an ''economic hit'' - for everyone in the know, everyone who saw the twinkle in that Scotch Egg's Golden Eye saw the signal for the feast to begin - is a Goldeneye a starter or a substantial meal? In the Land of the Blind the One-eyed Man is King; London has Fallen. This act of self-inflicted economic Armageddon will lead to the transformation of British society and, long term, this is also good news. Over the next decade the UK will be the ''World Stage'' - to begin with the tragic lessons of going alone, then the rising poverty and income disparity leading to something of a (controlled) social revolution alongside the reconstruction work which will see the UK become a model green (eco-capitalist) economy. Ordo ab Chao. In the vein of Goldeneye I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E has also served up the Solar Winds / Fire Eye Russian hackathon and ''Yellow Cyberperil'' courtesy of the Dragon, set dressing for those following the geopolitical throughlines. For those interested, in terms of ''set dressing'' we were looking for combinations of the ''Yellow Themes'' and I was a little surprised by this Lilifluenza Oxygen Explosion Crossover.
THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Mysterious comets. Wildfires. Malevolent algorithms. Disney Pangolin Serpent Bat Flu. Cities torn apart by riots. Choked highways. Ghost towns. Apocalyptic weather. Undead mink rising from their culls. Nyarlathotep. ''Mania, Panic, Eccentricity!'' Miscellaneous bullet points of eldritch alien horror. Investigators on the brink of losing their sanity and health... and with one bullet point of each left... what is the Nightmare before Christmas? No toilet paper? What gifts is Father Twatmas getting ready to lay under our tree?
I think you are getting one right now i.e. The Andromeda Strain with ''Train to Busan'' vignettes. As far as the first nightmare of 2021 goes, I think we will have to wait at least 28 days. Note to the wise, bear in mind that as the ''Virus'' (or for non-pedestrians, The ''Andromeda Strain'' of Lilith) goes into ''Hyperspin'' along with darkness + cold, we will see casualty rates spike aggressively, but ultimately, I assure you, this is for the best, as it will spin itself out. This Nightmare before Christmas is all about milking out the last dregs of
garmonbozia 2020 terror to propitiate Cronos for the conjunction, but in the end, in all ends, there is no thing to be afraid of for the Fear of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom.
Sen. Phillips: This cloud-seeding business, Stone — [are] you absolutely sure it worked? You better be!Dr. Jeremy Stone: All reports continue to indicate that the experiment was successful, Senator.Sen. Phillips: Then we can feel confident your so-called biological crisis is over.Dr. Jeremy Stone: As far as Andromeda is concerned, yes. We have the organism at Wildfire, and we continue to study it. We know now beyond a doubt that other forms of life exist in the universe.Sen. Phillips: Thanks to Scoop.Dr. Jeremy Stone: Yes. [pauses] However, with this new knowledge, there's no guarantee that another "so-called biological crisis" won't occur again.Sen. Phillips: Hmm. What do we do about that?Dr. Jeremy Stone: Precisely, Senator. What do we do?
