Sync Summit Synopsis To

Alchemical Marriage
"We all shine on, like the Moon and the Stars and the Sun."
-John Lennon

More syncs surrounding current events connecting back to the Sync Summit.

For those that have not yet read my original synopsis on the Olympia Sync Summit here, I'll give a brief rundown:
The Olympia Sync Summit took place August 8-10, 2014. The 45th anniversary of the Tate/LaBianca killings committed by The Manson Family.
On August 9th, 2014, Michael Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, inciting violent racial tension akin to that of Manson's Helter Skelter.
The day after the Summit, Robin Williams was found dead from suicide. Sync Summit organizer Alan Green had debuted his video series Suicide Kings at the Summit, which included a scene of Williams from The Fisher King.

What has happened since then?

The jury decided not to indict officer Darren Wilson. Protests and rioting ensued.
Notably, two Black Panther members were arrested on charges of planning to bomb the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.
Remember, Charles Manson staged the Hinman/Tate/LaBianca murders so as to frame the Black Panters in the crimes.
Loren Coleman and Alan Green pointed out that two different comics were recently created depicting the Gateway Arch with it's peak, or summit, missing, which is where the Black Panthers were planning on placing the explosives.
The Matson comic on the left was created in August. The New Yorker with the missing summit depiction was published today, December 8th, the anniversary of Lennon's shooting.
Remind you of anything?
As pointed out by Alan Green at Sync Quick News.

Also today, December 8th, a fire broke out at the DaVinci apartments in LA.
Rosemary gazes upon this painting moments before she sees her baby for the first time.
Remember, Lennon was killed outside The Dakota where he lived and where Rosemary's Baby was filmed.
Mia Farrow's film Full Circle (aka The Haunting of Julia) was released in the US on 9/11/81. Nine months after Lennon's shooting. In it her child dies, and she's married to a man played by Kier Dullea, who played David Bowman in 2001: A Space Odyssey. See post on Full Circle here.
What else is in the news lately? Actor Andrew Keegan starts a new religion based on Synchronicity, called Full Circle.

Just days before the announcement of the Michael Brown jury decision, SOLange Knowles married her fiancé Alan Ferguson.
See Sibyl's post Ferguson Garner: A Sync Photo Essay here.
The image accompanying most articles on their marriage feature this shot. Notice Solange's zebra-esque top.
Thus tying back in to all of the ubiquitous zebra themes that followed us at the Sync Summit.
What else happened that week?
Charles Manson was given a license to marry his fiancé Star.
Solange is the sister of Beyoncé Knowles, starr of the "dat ass tho" meme.

What other famous ass took over the internet recently?
Though Kim Kardashian's moon didn't break the internet, it did remind me of the breaking of the 10 Commandments in Oklahoma, recently.
This issue of Paper Magazine featuring KK was published on 11/11.

But that wasn't the only KK to unveil herself recently. Just days before 11/11, Kiera Knightly released an interview regarding her topless images published in Glamour Magazine... from August.
All this amidst the hoopla of Jennifer Lawrence's nude pics hacking.
All this amidst the ISIS terrorist news.

Fire & ISIS
The ISIS members responsible for the beheadings are nicknamed "The Beatles".
The famous beheading of James Foley was done by "John".

Ringo Starr was asked how he felt about the nickname, and he said it was "Bullshit", and that ISIS goes against everything the Beatles stood for -
(except for putting motifs in their work that Paul was beheaded, of course).

On December 6th, in a very Twin Peaks-esque story, a young woman was found burnt to death. Laura Palmer's identical cousin in Twin Peaks is named Maddy Ferguson.
The girl bears a striking resemblance to Dakota Fanning.
and her time of death...

And notice the similar hair stylings of Alan Ferguson, Trayvon Martin's father and Michael Brown's father. (According to some researchers, Martin's father is a Masonic Grand Master).

The mayor of Ferguson, Missouri happens to be named James Knowles.
The Governor of Missouri happens to be named Jeremiah Nixon.
On November 17th he declared a State of Emergency for MO.

Remember, Richard Nixon was president from 1969-1974.
In fact, one of the most famous moments during the Manson trial in 1970 was when President Nixon declared in an interview that "Manson is guilty".
The news was supposed to have been kept secret from Manson, but a newspaper was slipped onto his courtroom table and he held it up to the jury, almost inciting a mistrial.

The tragic shootings at Kent State also took place during Nixon's presidency.

Also, in late October 2014, a decision was made to preserve Manson's jail cell.

 In my first Sync Summit post, I mentioned that Williams lays on a pillow prominently displaying a zebra when he receives his Grail in The Fisher King.

A few days before leaving for the Summit, I reserved Hook at the library. I was finally able to watch it in October, and what do we have?
When Peter Pan sees Wendy's granddaughter sleeping in her bedroom, which is adorned with Beatles posters, he instantly falls in love with her and decides at that moment to leave Neverland and become a normal person.
Quite interesting that as he leans in to kiss her, which enacts his decision, he pushes the thimble, a token for a kiss in Neverland, directly into Paul's mouth on her pillow case.

As pointed out in the first Summit post, The Beatles took their iconic photo for their Abbey Road album cover on August 8th, right around that same time in America, Manson told his followers "Now is the time for Helter Skelter". It was actually later that day that Sharon Tate was killed, though it is attributed to August 9th, since it was shortly after midnight.

Synchead Johann Lenski suggested a Sync Movie Night just a few days ago. The movie decided upon was La Jetée by Chris Marker.
I noticed two things right away.
First, the shot of the people from the future looks strikingly similar to the cover of the Beatles 2nd album With The Beatles.

Which was released in the UK on the day JFK was shot, 11/22/63.
77 days later they invaded America via JFK Int'l Airport.
The date was February 7th - 2/7 - two sevens - 77.
(see Alan Green's work concerning all of the 77s surrounding the JFK kill, as well as my Manchurian Candidate post).
Just days before watching La Jetée, Sync Summit presenter Joe Alexander released his video on Back To The Future's JFK motifs.

Second, in David Bowie's 1993 video for Jump They Say, he dons the time traveling equipment from La Jetée.

1993 was the year of the WTC bombing. Jump They Say also features these 2001:ASO-esque stewardesses.
And of course, several shots of this zebra-stripe crosswalk. The black spaces inbetween the white stripes make an 11:11.

[Spoiler] La Jetée ends with the main character getting shot by a prison guard/police officer, a la Mike Brown.

Also see Joe's Back To The Future video on 9/11, which he debuted at the Summit.

SOLange and Ferguson are also famous for their all-white clothing, much like Lennon on the Abbey Road cover.
Abbey Road features the Lennon song Sun King. (Isis being the Moon Queen).
As well as Harrison's Here Comes The Sun, which he later answered with Here Comes The Moon.

I discussed the Jump They Say video in my Vanilla Sky post, a very Lennon-heavy film.

And in the midst of all this, Sync Summit attendee Misty Greer posted M.C. Escher's Sun and Moon piece, plate 42.
Which seemed to sum the events of November up quite neatly.

Oh, and the Sync baby! It was born a girl, on October 29th, not a boy as the Radio8Ball crowd had guessed.
Then again, the song was titled I Need A Manager. Not I Am A Manager.

Only A Southern Song

Terry Southern. One of the great 20th Century comedy writers.
As a beat poet and part of the '60s Swinging London, he rubbed elbows with all the greatest writers, artists and thinkers of his time.
Some of which share space with him on the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's album cover,
such as Lenny Bruce and William S. Burroughs, whom he helped to get Naked Lunch published.
Southern's first book to gain attention was his second effort; Candy. Co-written with Mason Hoffenberg. The book was later adapted into a movie which featured an all-starr cast, including Ringo Starr, and Sgt. Pepper alum Marlon Brando.
Interestingly, the prostitute in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is named Candy Starr.
John Astin plays his own twin brother in Candy. Which, like 2001:ASO, seems to have a "transcending the film" motif, the difference here is that Candy seems to loop back into the beginning.
Ringo plays Emmanuel, who in the book, is the one who injures Candy's father, putting him into a coma and leaving Candy in the care of his twin brother. In the film it is Emmanuel's sisters who injure him.

Southern's third book The Magic Christian was also well received, especially by young film director Stanley Kubrick, who was given a copy by Peter Sellers.
Fans of the "Paul McCartney is dead" myth will enjoy the fact that there is a recurring conversation in the book between Guy Grand and his sisters about a man from Liverpool named Bill, who was a dentist and put an egg in his sister's mouth, then ran out of the building yelling, "Yaahh! Yaahh! Yaahh!"
Kubrick later met Southern in 1962 when he was interviewed by Southern for Esquire Magazine about his controversial new screen adaptation of Lolita.
A few months later, Kubrick asked Southern to co-write the script for his new film Dr. Strangelove.

Fast forward to 1969. Terry Southern goes to work writing the screenplay for a film adaptation to The Magic Christian, with director Joseph McGrath, along with Graham Chapman, John Cleese and Peter Sellers. The film is produced by Denis O'Dell who previously produced A Hard Day's Night.
Peter Sellers had a hit in 1964 with his parody cover of the film's title track.
The biggest difference between the book and the film was the adopting of a son by Guy Grand.
Sellers played Grand, and the adopted son was played by none other than Ringo Starr.
The movie also features music by the Apple Records group Badfinger, particularly their song "Come And Get It", which was written and produced by Paul McCartney.

The Beatles wyncs do not end there. This film is a Rosetta Stone for Beatles researchers.

After Guy Grand adopts Ringo, the very first thing they do is go to see Hamlet. When they arrive, Guy's sister mentions that is is at the part with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
When they sit down to watch the play, Ringo says, "I've seen this. Shakespeare, right?"
To which Guy replies, "Right and double right!"
There was a play which premiered in August 1966 titled Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.
Sean Lennon wrote & recorded the soundtrack to a film titled Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead.
The play goes into a scene where Hamlet performs a strip-tease.
Hamlet is played by the Manchurian Candidate in The Manchurian Candidate, Laurence Harvey.
Harvey also co-starred with McCartney's girlfriend Jane Asher in The Winter's Tale.
See my post on The Manchurian Candidate here.
At the end of the scene, a sign comes down which reads "ZAP".
In AHDN, when Paul quotes from Hamlet, "Oh that this too, too solid flesh would melt", he turns to the camera and exclaims, "ZAP!"
In 1964, The Beatles performed a skit from Shakespeare's A Midsummer's Night Dream on British tv. In the skit, both Paul & John's characters kill themselves.
They were playing the role of traveling actors playing the roles of Pyramus & Thisbe. In the play Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, there are also traveling actors that play skits.
The 1990 film adaptation of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead features a story within a story motif.

Grand & his new son then attend a business meeting. One of Grand's employees is played by the young blond man who had a cameo in both AHDN and Help!

They then board a train almost exactly the same in appearance to that of the train in AHDN.
In their train car sits a stuffy old man, just like in AHDN. Sitting next to him is an Asian man, who gets switched out for a different Asian man.
The old gentleman does a double take, but soon returns to reading his paper. The second Asian man then gets swapped out for a third. Again the man senses something amiss, but pays it little mind.
The third Asian man is switched out as the first Asian man returns. Looking over and seeing the more familiar face of the first Asian man, the gentleman relaxes back into his newspaper reading.

In Sharon Tate's first film, Eye of the Devil, the landowner of a family owned vineyard is sacrificed by a local cult to ensure the abundant growth of the crops. There is a recurring harp motif in the film, and the son watches his father's sacrifice through the strings.
The Magic Christian features a very similar shot, seemingly unnecessarily so.
But if that wasn't enough, it then cuts to a shot where we can view the tv, as it shows a protester sign reading, "Vote Pig '68".
"Pigs", "Death to Pigs", and "Political Piggies" were the three messages written in blood by Manson's followers in the homes of their victims. Inspired by The Beatles song Piggies.
This was done with hopes of framing the Black Panthers in the murders and inciting a race war.
Then what do we see next on the news they're watching?
A black panther run amuck at a local dog show. It's owner, this African man.
And who has a cameo later on? Roman Polanski.
Earlier in the film, Grand had his men put an apology in his newspaper regarding an earlier story. The appy polly loggy was to be written in Polish.
The article in question was about a dead woman.
And of course, one of the famous scenes both in the book and the film, is where Grand wears a pig mask.

The launch date of the Magic Christian is Easter Sunday. Bringing to mind resurrection.
Two of the passengers for this prestigious voyage are (portrayals of) John Lennon & Yoko Ono.
While the Magic Christian is supposedly on it's voyage to New York, (it never really leaves London), there is a false flag hijacking of the ship by Cubans.

The updated book cover is rather interesting. We see a palm holding a lone heart. Twins. An Eyes Wide Shut mask. And a ticket to ride.
Palm raised over Paul on Lonely Hearts cover.
Interesting that on the Sgt. Pepper cover, we have Mae West, Terry Southern and H.C. Westerman.
Paul met Lina Eastman at the Sgt. Pepper release party.
See my post on North here.

Guy Grand being GG/77 brings up the ubiquitous OZ reference.
Grand even mentions the Yellow Brick Road to Ringo at one point in the film. Followed by him saying, "Done and double done".

Peter Sellers hired Terry Southern to write his dialogue for the 1967 film Casino Royale; a film that is so loaded it deserves a post of it's own.

Only A Northern Song

In the ancient Kabbalist texts, such as The Zohar, The Bahir and Sefer Yetzirah, Tiphareth on the Tree of Life represents represents the East, Yesod is the West, Chesed is the South, and Gevurah is the North.
Which corresponds with the directions on the Masonic tracing boards. Which even contains the three pillars.
(I asked my Mason friend if this is the reason, but have not received a reply yet).
A rotation of 90 degrees is needed to put the directions in the more common placements.

The Monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey rotates 90 degrees to become the Stargate.
(Which is comprised of the same dimensions as a movie screen).
The camera then rotates upward 90 degrees as Bowman approaches the Monolith and begins his Stargate journey.
Even the Stargate itself rotates 90 degrees.
The space capsule must sync with the rotation of the space station to enter the monolith-shaped entrance.
Even Moonwatcher rotates his head 90 degrees when he has his Monolith-inspired epiphany.

Each of the four letters of YHVH, the Holy name of G-d in Hebraic tradition, correspond to the four worlds of Existence, and when laid out in accordance to the Tree of Life are sequenced vertically.
Which when laid out in normal, horizontal fashion is again a 90 degree rotation.

It could be put forth that the four sections of 2001:ASO correspond with the Four Worlds.
The Dawn Of Man being Assiah
The Moon being Yetzirah
Discovery Mission to Jupiter being Briah
and Beyond the infinite being Atziluth

In his popular Youtube video series "Paul is dead - The Rotten Apple", iamaphoney claims to have solved Beatles' producer George Martin's "Love Code" by mirroring the Love album cover much like the Sgt. Pepper drum.
When the word Love is mirrored, you get the word Code.
When the image is rotated 90 degrees, not only do we have the walrus mustache & tusks at the top & bottom of the image, but also the famous mustache glyph.
Which of course reminds me of the imagery during the intro to 2001. Bringing to mind once again the monolith and it's 90 degree rotation.
If that wasn't enough, iamaphoney does use parts of the Stargate sequence, as well as scenes with Bowman's pod, in some of his videos.
See my post on the Kubrick/Beatles connections here.
One very applicable to this is in the film Magical Mystery Tour, when the tour guide says, "If you look out the window to your right, the view is not very inspiring. However if you look to your left..."
And as the passengers look out the left windows, the song Flying kicks in and we are treated to arial footage from Dr. Strangelove; as the bombers are flying near the North Pole.
Which, with it's colored filters, resembles the psychedelic footage from the Starrgate sequence on 2001:ASO.
Emphasizing this overlap is the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour double-EP sitting on the top shelf of the record shop visited by Alex in Kubrick's next film A Clockwork Orange.
iamaphoney also uses a Tree of Life in some of his videos. Turned 90 degrees of course.

When the name Ringo is transposed into Hebrew; Resh-Yod-Nun-Gimel-Ayin, the Gematrical value is 333, the same as Crowley's spelling of Choronzon, the Dweller at the Threshold.
Those last three letters Nun-Gimel-Ayin, spell out the Hebrew word Nega, which means "Plague", particularly that of leprosy.
Rotate those letters Nun-Gimel-Ayin one position and you get Oneg, which means "Delight".
Sefer Yetzirah
When Aleister Crowley contacted Choronzon, it was in the 10th Aethyr which is named ZAX. Ringo's first child is named Zak. The 10h Aeyther is the Great Abyss.
(This occured on Dec. 6th, 1909, the Altamont stabbing occured on Dec. 6th, 1969)

I'm not sure of the word Nogah relates to Nun-Gimel-Ayin, but this is interesting.
Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic

Also in the ancient Kabbalist texts, it is established that Evil comes from and dwells in the North.
Stemming from the three Sephiroth of the left pillar of the Tree, namely from Gevurah.
The Sefer Yetzirah and The Bahir
Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic by Thomas Karlsson

In April 1963, Paul McCartney & John Lennon formed a publishing company for their music, as well as Harrison's & Starr's, naming it Northern Songs.

George Harrison contributed a song to the Yellow Submarine soundtrack titled Only A Northern Song.
Interesting that this segment contains the sequence of the submarine becoming a cross which folds into a cube, from which multiple Beatles spring.
Which of course features the Yellow Sub as a Cross that needs to be rotated 90 degrees.

Ancient Kabbalist texts also describe The Tree of Knowledge as residing in the North side of the Garden of Eden.
Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic

The ancient texts also speak of the Revolving Flaming Sword which protects the Tree of Life.
(touching once again on the 90 degree rotation)
The Bahir

It is stated in The Zohar that when the sword revolves towards Chesed it is the staff of Moses and commands through Mercy.
If it revolves toward Gevurah it then commands through Guilt and becomes the serpent who seeks to spill blood.

In 1966, The Beatles released their album Revolver. Notice Paul is looking left towards where Gevurah would be if a Tree of Life were superimposed over it. This is also the year the "Paul is dead" myth states he died. It is also the year their friend Tara Browne died, starting a long string of deaths of Beatle friends & associates.

One of the working titles for Revolver was Abracadabra.
The word of the new Aeon.

Notice the word Abracadabra is inscribed along the canopy of the chariot in Crowley's Chariot card.
The Chariot and The Hanged Man are the Major Trumps of the Tarot that comprise the Left-Hand Path of the Tree of Life. When superimposed over each other, we essentially see a man blowing his mind out in a car.
Does, "he blew his mind out in a car" mean he took the Left-Hand Path of ascension?
The Hebrew letter attributed to The Hanged Man card is Mem, which translates to Water.
The Hebrew letter attributed to The Chariot card is Cheth, which means Fence, or Gate.
So, essentially, the Left-Hand Path is the Watergate.

Some literature on the Left Hand Path from Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic.
Twins, Diamonds

The word sinister is etymologically rooted in the term "the left side".
The Latin usage referred to unlucky omens occurring to one's left, which comes from the Greek practice of facing North when observing omens.
In heraldry it indicates illegitimacy.

Ezekiel's storm wind came from the North.
The North is the last direction on which ones meditates before riding the Storm. The forces of the evil Husks/Shells, the Qlippoth, must be breached before entering into the mysteries.

If you are wondering why one should bother looking into Kabbalah in a relation to pop culture, it is important to remember that it is just as much a major influence on the European occult as Egyptian mythology, Alchemy, Neo-Platonism, Eastern philosophy and the sciences.
Here we see in the book The Great Keys of Solomon by Golden Dawn co-founder Samuel Liddell Macgregor Mathers these same directional attributions.

This version of the Help! album was released in The Netherlands, which is located in Northern Europe.
Remember the word Qliphoth literally translates to Shell.
The Qliphoth are the representation of evil in Kabbalah, referred to as "The Outside Ones" and inhabit the reverse side of the Tree, as well as the dark depths of the Abyss - in other words the nether regions.
On June 17th, 1964, The Beatles performed their last concert in Melbourne, Australia (OZ). It was filmed and turned into a TV promotional program sponsored by Shell, titled "The Beatles Sing For Shell."

Interesting that Paul is holding the Netherlands flag in this painting by Alan Aldrige, used for the cover of The Beatles Ballads. Also notice the 111 on his cheeks.
The Zohar implies that the Qliphotic Tree is the reverse, or mirrored version of the Tree of Life.
Therefore the YHVH that constitutes the Tree of Life becomes HVHY on the Qliphotic side.
In other words, the Qliphotic side is a flipped version.
Which again, seems to be illustrated in 2001:ASO
as pointed out by the author of 2001: A False Flag Odyssey
and the always brilliant film analyst Juli Kearns.
Shot 1 uses the proper orentation, going by Frank Poole's hair part and the instances in which we see writing. Shot 1 has the singular hibernation chamber on Frank's right, and the double chambers on his left.
Shots 2, 3 & 4 were flipped. 
Also notice we are introduced to Frank Poole with a 90 degree tilted shot. The camera then rotates 90 degrees to an upright position.
The shot on the right was used flipped. Frank's hair part tells all.
Dave Bowman draws the hibernation chambers in their proper place while sketching. It is most interesting that this is the sketch he skips over when HAL asks to see his drawings.
There are more image flips in the film. Another noticeable one is when Bowman is floating towards the satellite. The flip is indicated by the air hose now being on the left side of the space suit and the box is in the left hand.
As Bowman exited the pod, the box is in his right hand and the air hose is on his right. This is the orientation seen in most other scenes.
Kubrick used the same cloud banks in these two shots, but the second one is flipped.
When the camera cuts to a closer shot, the clouds are now flipped back the other way.
These cloud banks were reused in three other shots!
By looking at the shoulder ropes and George's MBE badge, one will see the image on the back side of the Sgt. Pepper cover was used flipped.
What's even more interesting is that by looking at the fingers/hands they seem to be spelling something.
George is making an L shape, John a V, and Ringo an E.
Looking at it as printed it seems to be essentially spelling L-VE. (LIVE or LOVE)
However, knowing it's flipped, and seeing McCartney's body as an I, it's more like EVIL.
Also notice McCartney has his back to us, as does Frank when his jogging shot is flipped.
2001:ASO is all about flips, rotations and twins. A theme we see in Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's.

Interesting that Aleister Crowley urged his students to perform tasks, such as speaking, backwards.
Very interesting that the first line in I Am The Walrus is "I am he..."
"I am he" played backwards sounds a lot like "EMI" - the record label the Beatles belonged to since 1962.
In an interview, McCartney says it was William S. Burroughs who interested him in playing phonographs backwards. Burroughs happens to be positioned directly above McCartney on the Sgt. Pepper cover.

In 2001:ASO as the Pan-Am Orion rocket approaches Space Station 5, we see the space station revolving clockwise.
However, a few minutes and a handful of shots later, it is now revolving counter-clockwise. The circular shape of the space station brings to mind an LP record disc. The reverse spin brings to mind playing records backwards.
Rain, by The Beatles, was the first pop song to use reversed audio. Though it is not on the Revolver album, it was recorded during the Revolver/Abracadabra sessions and released as a single shortly before the album.
Crowley's "Night of Pan", or N.O.X, where the Adept undergoes ego-death, then must cross the Great Abyss and meet Choronzon.

The Beatles' single Hey Jude was the first single released by Apple and was the highest selling single of 1968 (same year as 2001:ASO), and held the #1 spot in the US charts for a total of 9 weeks, which tied the previous US record.
The length of the American release was 7:11, 7x11 = 77/OZ.
"Jude" is German for Jew, and is pronounced "Yood" or very  much like the Hebrew letter Yud.
The Name, YHVH, is often expressed as YH, Yud-Heh, which itself has many connotations.
The reverse of that is Heh-Yud.
The Name YHVH is permutated 12 different ways by Kabbalists in accordance with the six directions; for purposes of meditation and contemplation of the structure of the Universe.
The arrangements beginning with Heh and ending with Yud are associated with the North.
These are all excerpts from the Sefer Yetzirah.
Notice here the North arrangements in the Long Version at the bottom of this table.
Hey-Yud-Heh-Vav, Heh-Yud-Vav-Heh and Heh-Heh-Yud-Vav.
Notice the permutation HVHY is assigned to north upper in the short version.

1:13 of The Sefer Yetzirah describes the arrangements of the three letters of The Name, Yud, Heh and Vav.
North is attributed to Heh Vav Yud. With the Vav connecting the Heh-Yud.
See my Thoth post on how McCartney resonates with the letter Vav.
"If Yud and Heh are in direct order, then they define the positive direction on the axis. If they are in reverse order then they define the negative direction."

With all of the 90 degree rotations and horizontal flips in 2001:ASO, I tried it with the Revolver cover, and placed it over the image on the back side of Lennon's Imagine.
Speaking of Imagine. The actor who played Moonwatcher in 2001:ASO was a good friends with Lennon and was the director of photography for his Imagine promo-film.

We're seeing mirror-image like symmetry in these two shots. Not only in the composition, but also in the twinning aspects of the subjects.
The pilots of the Orion in particular look almost identical.
The shot zooming into the monolith after the ultimate epiphany also contains exact mirror symmetry.

The "Paul is dead" premise has it that McCartney was replaced by a man named Will Shepherd. Will being the central principle of Thelema and Magick.
Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic
Note McCartney's blue (sky) suit and the tilt of his almost phallus-like, wand-like Cor Anglais similar to that of Earth's axis.
Also note, if you place a T in the center of the name Baal, which the name Beelzebub derives it's root, you get a word similar to Beatle.
in Kubrick's film Lolita, it is the Beale kid that kills Lolita's mom by hitting her with his car.
The death & rebirth ceremony is always synonymous with Khepera, the Scarab-headed diety of Egyptian mythology.
The Fool card is attributed to the 11th path on the Tree of Life, the path between Kether and Chokmah.
The Fool on the Hill.
The Ratzon (Will) is used to achieve the Oneg (Divine delight).

Qliphotic structures are an imitation of the divine order, according to Kabbalists.
When probing the divine mysteries, a solution may or may not be reached, but progress is made and wisdom is attained with each step.
Therefore, as Qliphotic structures being mere imitations, by their nature, a Qliphotic mystery will lead nowhere, and only become more of a mindfuck the deeper one goes. Qliphotic mysteries cannot be solved.
I believe this is reflected in the unsolvable maze seen in the inner gatefold of The Rolling Stones' album Their Satanic Majesties Request - their answer to Sgt. Pepper's, which was released the same day the Magical Mystery Tour double EP was released; December 8th, 1967, 13 years before Lennon's death.
Qliphotic mysteries cannot be solved, they can only be broken down and transcended.
Which is the most accurate way of describing the "Paul is dead" mystery.

The Asher Tribe of Israel is one of the three tribes of the North.
Paul McCartney's girlfriend from 1963 to 1968 was actress Jane Asher.

Sharon Tate starred in her most famous role as Jennifer North in Valley of the Dolls in 1967.

In Rosemary's Baby, during Rosemary's drug-induced hallucination before being raped by Satan, a sea captain turns around and points north.
She then sees her friend Hutch warning of a typhoon storm.

From The Bahir

The Hebrew word for 'Evil' or more literally 'bad' or 'dysfunctional' is spelled Resh-Ayin. It's pronounced RA, but is spelled RO. (remember NGO "Plague")
Rosemary's husband calls her Ro.

In the 1988 film Mr. North, Anthony Edwards' character heals Mary Stuart Masterson's character with his electric touch. Mary was born on 6/28/66, the same day that Rosemary's baby is born.
The lightning flash of the Tree of Life exits through the North and restores the Moonchild.

Mary's first film was Stepford Wives, which, like Rosemary's Baby, was written by Ira Levin.

During the second half of The Shining, Danny moves his Gevurah finger when communicating with Tony, the boy in his throat. (First half he uses his right-hand index finger).
Sefer Yetzirah

Interesting that The Bahir and The Zohar essentially translate to The Shining, or Brilliant Light.

In Michelangelo Antonioni's 1970 film Zabriskie Point, the main character steals an airplane from the Northrop airport and flees to Death Valley amidst the violent racial tension going on in the LA area. (Manson much?)
When he returns he is shot and killed by the police.

Zohar commentary fittingly attributes Gevurah to Wealth.
The female lead in Zabriskie Point is named Daria, which means wealth.
See my post on Zabriskie Point here.

Lindsay Anderson's 1973 film O Lucky Man relates to the concepts discussed here to an alarming degree.
One of the recurring themes is Justice, which the film begins with.

The Bahir explaining that Gabriel is the angel attributed to Gevurah, and is the overseer of Justice.

We then soon learn that a coffee salesman named Oswald (OZ) has disappeared from his post in the North of England, and a replacement is needed.

"North" - "Left"

The supervisor asks the sales trainer to select a replacement for OZwald, and she selects Malcom McDowell's character Mick Travis.
Mick's trainer's name is Gloria (in brown vest).
The English translation for the Sephirah of Hod is Glory.
Hod is directly below Gevurah on the Kabbalah Tree of Life and is thusly attributed as a source of nourishment for Evil.

Of course, before Mick heads North, he is given an Apple.

While on his Northbound excursion, he witnesses a fatal car accident, is taken to a strip club, and while lost, stumbles onto a military base.

While at the military base, he looks through his binoculars in hopes of getting his bearings, and we see these three spheres.

"enlightenment" - "illumination"
Can't help but notice the man on Mick's car radio says that right as he sees the three spheres.

His presence not being welcome, Mick is taken in for interrogation and beaten. The base is soon attacked and Mick's car is destroyed.
In Magical Mystery Tour, The Beatles go to a military base and a strip club.

Mick eventually finds a church in the country side and is nursed back to health by the church mother.
Her advice for him...

Notice his golden suit. Gold is also attributed to Gevurah. It was given to him by a tailor at his first residence in the North.
Later, back in London, the same actor who played the tailor, plays his boss, who frames him for the illegal transaction of gold bullion.
Gold is also, of course, attributed to Gevurah.
And like the opening sequence of the film, Mick is found guilty. This time for the illegal exportation of Gold.
See my entire post on O Lucky Man here. It's quite a doozy for "Paul is dead" fans.

In Jack Nicholson's 1978 film Goin' South, there is only one instance of goin' south; at the very beginning. Nicholson's character Henry Lloyd Moon is being chased by the law for horse theft. He manages to cross the border into Mexico, assuming he is now a free man.
However, Christopher Lloyd as the deputy and his men cross the border and arrest him anyway. So, they head back North where he is sentenced to hang.
However, due to a recent ordinance instated after the loss of thousands of men in the Civil War, any single woman can save a man sentenced to death if she marries him. Which Mary Steenburgen's character has Mercy(Chesed/South) and does. Her name then becoming Julia Tate-Moon. She does so in hopes that he will help her fulfill her father's dream of finding Gold in the mines on their property.

The three space suits in The Discovery in 2001:ASO are red, yellow and light blue. Interesting that the blue suit never gets used, it hangs there unembodied throughout the whole film. Ringo's & George's Sgt. Pepper suits are both in the red family, and can be taken as one red suit - Bowman's. George & Ringo could theoretically be taken as the only two Beatles to live through 2001 (or, most of it).
Very interesting that it is Frank in the yellow suit who dies, by the satellite with the cross-like structure on it. The shadow on the satellite appears as a bow & arrow, which I believe alludes to Frank being an extension of Bowman, perhaps of an egoic nature.
See my Thoth post on how George HarriSon resonates as Horus the Son, poster child of the current Aeon.
Bowman does wear a green helmet after being sabotaged by HAL, which he wears during the shutting down of HAL. This is reflected in the green feather in George's cap. Though a green suit is never seen during the film.
Also notice the 1111 illuminated memory banks shining on Bowman's face, which bring to mind the cross walk on Abbey Road.

HAL deceives Frank into resigning from a chess game by flipping the orientation and convincing him he is in a forced move, when in actuality, he is not.
The floor in the Renaissance Room is comprised of 64 squares, just like a chess board.
Sgt. Pepper's contains the song When I'm 64.
Ringo's famous quote regarding the recording of the Sgt. Pepper's album is, "I played a lot of chess."

Incidentally, Ringo is in the Frank Zappa film 200 Motels, which has two scenes featuring Kubrick's Monolith. As it was filmed in the same studio.

A brass vessel, in a lake, 4 leaders...

The bone thrown into the air before fading into the satellite in 2001:ASO rotates counter-clockwise as it rises. It then cuts to a bone rotating clockwise as it continues to rise, then falls and fades into the space station.
(Note, this is not the bone Moonwatcher is holding when he throws his into the air)

Rabbi Isaac ben Jacon ha-Kohen wrote in "A Treatise on the Left Emanation" that Lillith, the evil "twin" of Eve, is called the Northern One. "...Samael and Lillith are emanated from below the Throne of Glory, and this was caused by the Sin." -  Chapter 6
He then explains that when Adam & Eve sinned in the Garden, it caused two sexual awakenings among the two pairs of "twins". This was the awakening in which the snake, either called Nahasiel of Gamilel, took part - the event that caused evil to become it's own entity capable of expression.

The White Album poster bears a noticeable resemblance to the Masonic tracing board.

The poster for the film Sideways depicts a wine bottle on it's side. Notice the figures inside aren't corresponding with gravity in this case and the image needs to be rotated 90 degrees.

MK Ultrasound points out that at the exact 42:00 minute mark of the film, they show a wine bottle which reads "Whitcraft 2001" on the label, as somebody says, "What does this remind you of?" And at the same time somebody else says, "Redrum! Redrum!" while moving their index finger like Danny in The Shining.
A bottle of red rum with what could be taken as Witchcraft. 2001 on the label. And the Shining finger with "Redrum!" And a wine bottle on the cover which needs to be rotated 90 degrees like the monolith, which stands next to the WTC as The Millenium Hilton. The Hilton in 2001:ASO w/two aircrafts in the office. Danny wearing a 42 shirt. It's all too much! (the name of Harrison's other song on the Yellow Submarine soundtrack).
