First China, now England. Very bizarre indeed…
Wow, what a past week or so it’s been. All the things we’ve been keeping our eyes fixed on, all the developments and/or non-developments and blood moons and shmeetas (yes I spelled that wrong on purpose) and everything else. I have barely written anything of consequence in the midst of it all, and I have made time for art/creativity even less, I’m afraid. I did manage to sit down one day however and sketch out the rather directionless image above the other day, whilst in the midst of making a video on the idea of the “Hyper-moon”, which is now done.
Now, being that we are on the other side of the “super-blood-final-tetrad-eclipse-shmita-moon spectacular”, (which, ironically enough I was unable to see with any clarity, because the Nevada skies were obscured by clouds for only about the second time in six months), I have to say that the more this concept simmers in my little brain, the more I really become more and more convinced that:
A) the Moon is NOT orbiting around the Earth
B) the Moon is almost certainly self-luminous, and NOT reflecting the light of the Sun,
C) I do also think that it is very likely that there is some kind of hyperdimensional quality to the moon (and probably all of the “luminaries” for that matter).
Even though the Eclipse is now over, the Moon was still looking pretty darn “super” last night, even in it’s almost full state. Very bright. So bright it was casting rather strong shadows, and when I went to take the trash out last night, I found myself once again standing in my driveway, just staring up at it, as I have done so many times in the past few weeks, just marveling at it, at just how tangible and accessible it all is, while at the same time taking on so much more “mystical” qualities, all of which in the end just makes me that much more in awe of my Creator, of the massive, complex world that he made…
Anyhow, lots of people have been goin’ “Looney for the Lune” lately, and Rob Skiba is of course one of em, putting up this short vid about the eclipse, and how the shadow being cast over the moon, eclipsing it (which is supposedly caused by the Earth) doesn’t come from the correct direction that it should, if that shadow was being caused by the Earth coming between the Sun and Moon.
“And He will lift up a standard for the nations And assemble the banished ones of Israel, And will gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.” Isaiah 11:12
One of the most interesting aspects of considering the staggering possibility of the Earth truly being a flat plane, is the notion that is that the “ends of the Earth” is no longer simply just some kind of figurative expression, but could in fact could be a simple literal truth. Along with this idea comes the proposition of the “four cardinal points” being four literal, equidistant terminal locations, as well as these four corners/points being connected to the four winds, and four angels.
“Then He said to me, ‘Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, “Thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.’” – Ezekiel 37:9
“And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”- Matthew 24:31
After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.
and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.
The verse from Revelation 7 I find particularly interesting, because of the fact that it describes the four angels in conjunction with the four corners, holding back the four winds, which is a rather bizarre thing indeed to try and imagine just what that means, or how that would really look/work, if the Earth was a globe. If the four corners are simply metaphorical (since a ball has no literal corners) then are the angels simply metaphorical too…? Bit of a slippery slope there, if you ask me. Biblical scholars go to extreme lengths in order to explain how the four corners is not literal, and just means the “extreme ends of the Earth”. But if you think about it, on a Globe Earth, you don’t even have “extreme ends”. You have nothing from which to objectively call anything an “extremity”, aside from cultural notions of one’s particular region being towards the “center” (i.e. the Roman Empire, the Middle East, whatever…)
Now… Much like the very interesting parallels between the thematic content of Jude and Peter in relation to the book of Enoch, there are some incredibly noteworthy connections to be found between Revelation and Enoch as well, when it comes to the idea of corners, angels, and winds…
“I then surveyed the receptacles of all the winds, perceiving that they contributed to adorn the whole creation, and to preserve the foundation of the earth. I surveyed the stone which supports the corners of the earth. I also beheld the four winds, which bear up the earth, and the firmament of heaven. And I beheld the winds occupying the exalted sky. Arising in the midst of heaven and of earth, and constituting the pillars of heaven. I saw the inds which turn the sky, which cause the orb of the sun and of all the stars to set; and over the earth I saw the winds which support the clouds. I saw the path of the angels.” Enoch 18:1-7
“And at the extremities of the earth I beheld twelve gates open for all the winds, from which they proceed and blow over the earth. Three of them are open in the front of heaven, three in the west, three on the right side of heaven, and three on the left. The first three are those which are towards the east, three are towards the north, three behind those which are upon the left, towards the south, and three on the west. From four of them proceed winds of blessing, and of health; and from eight proceed winds of punishment; when they are sent to destroy the earth, and the heaven above it, all its inhabitants, and all which are in the waters, or on dry land.” Book of Enoch, chapter 75:1-3
“The first wind is called the eastern, because it is the first. The second is called the south, because the Most High there descends, and frequently there descends he who is blessed for ever. The western wind has the name of diminution, because there all the luminaries of heaven are diminished, and descend. The fourth wind, which is named the north, is divided into three parts; one of which is for the habitation of man; another for seas of water, with valleys, woods, rivers, shady places, and snow; and the third part contains paradise.” Enoch, chapter 76:1-4
The more I look into this topic of “Enochian cosmology”, the more pressed I feel towards the ultimate question of “Is Enochian cosmology really just Biblical cosmology, which has not been hammered into conforming to an assortment of materialistic, heliocentric concepts which have bombarded Biblical scholars for centuries, all of which culminates in the post-modern, completely allegorized form of Biblical interpretation that is so prevalent today?” I think more and more I am becoming convinced that the answer is a simple yes.

Something I am becoming increasingly fascinated with as of late is the whole concept of “extra-dimensional reality”. Of course, this is not a new concept at all, either in general or even my own ramblings on this blog. However, the aspect which suddenly struck me as something I had never even really contemplated before, was something I recently heard on a podcast on Canary Cry Radio interviewing Josh Peck. Now, I’ve actually been “following” Josh’s work for a few years now, so I went into it figuring I would enjoy it as much as always, but honestly wasn’t expecting to hear anything all that new. It’s actually a pretty long podcast, with a good deal of late-night-fueled hilarity, but somewhere in the midst of it they actually do get around to discussing some of the topics of Peck’s new book, “Cherubim Chariots: Exploring the Extradimensional Hypothesis”. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on this new release, but haven’t read it yet…
Ok, so the thing that really jumped out at me, was when Josh started talking about quantum mechanics, and how quantum physicists can observe various bizarre things occurring on the quantum level, such as how sometimes sub-atomic particles seem to be able to “communicate” or interact with each other, absolutely instantly, over massive distances of space. This should be completely impossible, since the reactions occur faster even than the speed of light itself. Also, apparently all photons (in the whole universe) seem to behave as if they can all “communicate” in such a way, and are in fact almost as if they are all “connected” somehow. Then, Peck refers back to the “Flatland” analogy, which most of us are probably familiar with by, which is a type of allegorical aid to help us try and conceive of how dimensions higher than our own might relate to the 3-D world. The analogy describes the “Flat-landers”, who are 2-dimensional beings living in a 2-dimensional world (i.e. a plane). To the Flatlanders, they would observe 3-dimensional beings/objects which penetrated their plane as being quite different and confusing compared to what they are, and how they work, in the 3-D world. Ok, so like I said, I have been very familiar with this analogy ever since reading about it in one of C.S. Lewis’s books (I don’t know that he came up with himself, but he at least popularized it a great deal), but admittedly, I now am realizing that up till now, I only ever really employed this kind of speculative extrapolation when it came to extra-dimensional BEINGS (spirits/angels, etc.), and, I suppose, towards the concepts of “higher” spiritual realms as well. I had honestly never before considered the possibility of there being elements and aspects of our own 3-dimensional universe which might “traverse” across dimensions themselves, being not entirely confined to one or another.
And so back to the theoretical example of light. What if Light itself is not something that is even limited to our own space-time? What if in fact so much more of our physical, “tangible” universe actually exists extra-dimensionally, at least on the quantum level, and yet we are for the most part completely unaware of this, because of the fact that of course we ourselves (at least in our perceptions) are confined to 3-D space/time? Could this indeed be (at least partially) why something like light appears to behave as both a particle and a wave? Is this the reason that that the two “pillars” of modern physics, quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity, seem to stand up on their own, yet contradict one another when brought together? Are these questions today becoming irrelevant, or are they perhaps the very things hoped to be finally understood as they continue smashing atoms together in the underground tunnels of CERN…?
Or what about the fabled “Planet X”…? This too is something I am now intending to give some further thought through the lens of the “extradimensional hypothesis” as well…
