Michael Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: These references are mostly over my head, but I thought I'd get some thoughts going... Obviously, the central image is a mushroom cloud of a nuclear explosion. The mathematical equations in the "cross" radiating out from the mushroom cloud are equations relating mass and energy, as in Einstein's E=mc^2, though I don't know enough about math or nuclear physics to understand what specific processes are represented here. The bottom one seems to be a matrix of some kind that might represent symmetries in particle interactions? 12 CFR 204.126(b) is a section of the regulations for the Federal Reserve banking system dealing with exemptions to reporting securities deposits or something, Regulation D having to do with the sale of securities without registration under the Securities Act of 1933. Again, this legalese is a bit dense for me to pick apart without spending a great deal of time jumping around government law websites. The Federal Reserve seals in 3 of the 4 quadrants represent the Federal Reserve banks of A=Boston, MA; L=San Francisco, CA; E=Richmond, VA Deuteronomy 7:2 "And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:" Cooperativa de Viticultores e Olivicultores de Freixo de Numão, C.R.L. is a Portugese winery located in Freixo de Numão that bottles wine under the Licor Regional authority (and also sells olive oil). They have a web address at www.cfnumao.com I tried to search on the Greek characters to find that Heraclitus quote, but Google had no match for the Greek unicode letters. The engravings appear to show various aspects of Judgment Day. In the upper right quadrant, it appears that an archangel is signalling the coming of Judgment Day by blowing a shofar and sending out a "blast of truth." Is the object under the angel in the lower left hand corner the Ark of the Covenant? It sure looks similar to how it's usually represented in engravings. Not sure what cathedral the stained glass windows came from, but 12 in a circle like that is a very common motif. I found the Heraclitus quote on a Greek language page of Heraclitus' writing fragments. Here it is in English: "If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it; for it is hard to be sought out and difficult."
THe largest and clearest clue on the page is "Deuteronomy 7:2" = 7:2 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them The center of the picture is clearly a picture of the Nagasaki nuclear mushroom cloud, but when looking for it's origin to be sure I found it mostly on pages related to war with Iran, I don't know if that is a coincidence... The "Fat Man" weapon, dropped on Nagasaki containing a core of 14.1 lbs of plutonium-239 killed 140,000 people as opposed to the 80,000 people killed in the Hiroshima bombings. Gustavus Adolphus was the king of Sweden and was a well known military commander. Calvin Coolidge was an american president. Martin LUTHER inspired Protestantism which is what eventually lead to calvinism.Calvinism is a theological system that emphasizes the rule of God over all things named after French reformer John Calvin. Oliver Cromwell was a Puritanically religious English military and political leader from 1653 until his death in 1658. That makes their timelines: Martin Luther 1483~V1546 John Calvin 1509-1564 Oliver Cromwell 1599-1658 Gustavus Adolphus 1594 - 1632
Perhaps obvious, but the little circles with the bold letters in them are Seals of the Federal Reserve Banks. A is Boston, E is Richmond, and L is San Francisco. According to this site (http://www.minneapolisfed.org/econed/curric/pictures.cfm) these symbols were being phased out in favor of a unified seal, beginning with the $100 in 1996. Note that one quadrant, top-right, between Luther and Cromwell, does not have a seal. Perhaps there is some significance in the orientation of the axes. Luther and Calvin are opposed in the north-south, both being theologians. Gustavus Adolphus and Cromwell are opposed west-east, and were noted military commanders. All are Protestant.
After careful of investigation we discoverd another Hotel California in Berlin, Germany. We are very new to this mystery and very intrigued, so sorry if this has been mentioned before. But to our investigative knowledge, we have not come across any mention of the Berlin hotel. Hotel California in Berlin corresponds strongly with all the Germany references, names, etc. in previous clues.
Comments: A couple of translations for the Heraclitis quote: If you do not hope, you will not win that which is not hoped for, since it is unattainable and inaccessible. If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it; for it is hard to be sought out and difficult. If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it, for it is not to be reached by search or trail. I wonder if the 3rd ~Snot~T in the first was unintended and if ~Strial~T (and error) is a better fit for the 3rd. I~Rm a copy and pasting fool so the typos are not mine. I could have tried translating it myself but then it~Rd probably look more like: There once was a man from Nantucket~E At any rate, the 2nd was the most common translation I found but I included these 3 for interpretation within the context of the MM. It seems the message is that if you don~Rt expect to find or believe a solution to the MM exists then you will not find one. That has a ring of encouragement followed by the admonition that we won~Rt find a solution by trial and error or merely looking up historical figures, dates, events, etc. That~Rs not to suggest that these are unimportant. The painting I~Rm not familiar with but it looks like it is meant to be cut out and used as an overlay onto a previous page. D. Thomasson suggested an overlay in the 12/5/2001 announcement. I~Rve posted a possible 2nd overlay to same page. The orientation of the picture in each quarter makes me think the quarters could be cut apart and reconnected in some way. The problem with overlays is scale. Having originals would be ideal. Dimensions of the originals would be a work around or use a photo editing program to resize onto a common font. Luther, Cromwell, Calvin and Gustavus Adolphus only appear in this order in the May 2002 announcement. First appearance of all 4 together was May 1995, all 4 have appeared in each May announcement since. To Bryan: You recently mentioned an affinity for discord on this site. Have you found this? http://www.principiadiscordia.com/ To all: MITTO TIBI NAVEM PRORA PVPPIQVE CARENTEM What you get when you read this stuff too much. Enjoy.
Comments: Christa--Nagasaki, huh? I think it's an image of a test over water or desert--if you do a google image search on "nuclear bomb," I think you'll see the first match (at present) is a direct one. To Psychomike, I remember contemplating the possibility of overlays. The 4/2/08 ad clearly models the cut-and-paste method. I once asked the proprietor of a technical college bookstore if graph paper was ever sold in newspaper size; he said that he thought so. (I've never seen it. I suppose you could find it online easily enough.) As far as scale goes, I think you could get newspaper-sized paper and use an image processor to print these out roughly to scale, though determining the margins would be very hard without seeing the original. (Or maybe not, I know that some of you used to work for the newspaper.) If cutouts are part of the process, I think it has to be relatively recent, as desktop publishing only allowed complex designs from the early 90s on. The first thing to do, to my mind, if you believe there's something to be decoded here other than just book larnin', is to figure out from the early ads the dates of the subsequent non-mayday and non-advent announcements. That's one reason, perhaps, why the "unscheduled" ones are labeled as such. (Again, keep in mind what this would have been like without a digital archive or even the web.) The 11/23/83 ad seems to obviously point to the September date of the following year, for example; but it's not clear how the other dates are encoded. And, it's logical to assume, that if these were intended to recruit or be deciphered, they would have to encode the dates of subsequent announcements above all else. With no maydaymystery site, you'd have no idea when to expect one; and no one's patience would extend to reading the ads of the campus newspaper every single day.
"Luther, Cromwell, Calvin and Gustavus Adolphus only appear in this order in the May 2002 announcement. First appearance of all 4 together was May 1995, all 4 have appeared in each May announcement since." Do some math and look at Smiley's hair.
If you've read the Pendulum, I guess you could say that what Eco says about Templars applies equally to the Jesuits, esp. in this day and age.
There seem to be alot of references to Portugal regarding the celebration of the Confessio Augustana this year. The Coimbra Section---Coimbra is one of the largest cities in Portugal and home to Coimbra University. It also may refer to the Coimbra Group (CG) which is a sort of partnership or consortium of 38 European Universities. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coimbra_Group This may be the section of the Freaks based in Europe or in European Academia, etc. Tras-O-Montes---Is a rather rural region in NE Portugal known as retreat/holiday/vacation area. It is home to the Vidago Palace Hotel Resort. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vidago Could this be this years Hotel California?
Hard to say whether there is any significance as to the specific image of a nuclear explosion used, but it is not the Nagasaki explosion as someone suggested. It is the Castle Romeo (Operation Castle, shot Romeo) test, one of a series of thermonuclear weapons tests in the Bikini atoll. The image is very common as a stand-in whenever an image of a nuclear explosion is needed, so I wouldn't assign too much importance to the specifics.
I reckon the left hand side and top right are 13th or 014 century woodcuts the like od abbrecht Durer's [LINK]
I think the Bottom right could be the Transfuguration but It lacks the figures of Elijah and Abraham. It might be the Ark when solomon had finished the Temple.
I am leaning to all four being scenes from the Last Book of the Bible called the REvelations of St John or the book of the Apoclypse. Why? Well the figure on the cloud with the sickle suggests Chapter 14 of that book. http://www.usccb.org/nab/bible/revelation/revelation14.htm Verse 14: Then I looked and there was a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud one who looked like a son of man, with a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. [LINK]
You also have trumpets being blown by angles ( top right)in Revelations to open seals. you have the torment of hell (bottom right) in the same Book. It is also the book oif the apoclypes (mushroom cloud) I would ike a closup of the centre but the evangalists (four gospel writers are represented by a lion, eagleOne significant representation of four symbology is in the representation of the four evangelists of the four winged beasts in the vision of Ezekiel, later reconstitutes in the New Testament as the four beasts of the apocalypse in the Book of Revelations.
The beast with the human face (sometimes considered an angel) represents Matthew, the lion Mark, the eagle John and the ox Luke.
[LINK] again Rev 4:5-11 You might also have a dove (holy spirit). these central circular depictions seem more like stained glass or Celtic Illuminated Manuscript art than wood cuts. [LINK]
The scene in the upper left quadrant is from Revelation starting around 14:14
The stained glass window depicted in the center (around the atom bomb explosion) is Chartres Cathedral, in the city of Chartres, France (about 50 miles from Paris). It is described as the "Glorification of the Virgin Window" or the Death and Assumption of the Virgin Window." That last title seems appropriate for the atom bomb imagery.
Deuteronomy 7:2 It's phrased a little different in the JPS (Jewish Publication Society) Tanakh "and the L-rd your G-d delivers them to you and you defeat them, you must doom them to destruction: grant them no terms and give them no quarter."
No matter how complicated the mathematics the right programmer could reduce it all to 1s and 0s. Seems obvious but think of the huge amount raw material they could generate from what we see on this page. Remember too that much of the early atomic bomb research centered on "Trinity." One commentator called the Book of Revelation "the Trinity enraged and settling accounts." You could be real specific about how to detonate your rage with that many 1s and Os.
The mathematics in the side panels all seems to be based on quantum mechanics, specifically relativistic quantum mechanics because of their use of 4-vectors. The parts under Gustavus Adolphus and Cromwell look like the math that goes into a particle in a box, but done in a relativistic fashion I'm not familiar with. The part under Calvin is more linear algebra but is seems really obscure. The part under Luther is more quantum mechanics but without seeing more it's hard to say what.
Stained Glass around the mushroom cloud. This is the north rose window of Chartres Cathedral in France. Here is a site with info on the rose window window: And the process by which one can derive the dimensions of said window: http://www.constructingtheuniverse.com/Chartres%20Window.html It should be noted that Chartres is affiliated with the Knight's Templar. Chartres is also famous for its labyrinth on the floor. Diagram here: http://www.center4awakenedliving.com/chartres.jpg Wikipedia also has some pretty good info on Chartres.

The four names you have already figured out. However, I think that the names are themselves connected. Luther and Calvin are famous Protestant religious reformers while Cromwell and Gustavus Adolphus are famous Protestant military commanders. Cromwell was a Puritan, a primarily English religious movement based on the teachings of Calvin. Gustavus Adolphus was the King of Sweden and therefore was a Lutheran. The stain-glass in the center is called a "rose" and the position occupied by the mushroom cloud is the position normally occupied by Christ. The picture of the bomb is not that of Nagasaki but of another test, possibly Trinity. Furthermore, the Confessio Augustana or better know as the Augsburg Confession (an important Protestant event) took place on June 25, 1530 and the 478th anniversary will be June 25, 2008. However, this is not the true anniversary of the event. In 1582, the Catholic Church adopted the Gregorian calender and eliminated 10 days due to the inaccuracies of the previous Julian calender. Protestant countries took longer to adopt the calender, often adopting it in the 18th century. Consequently, the exact date of the original Augsburg Confession would have been closer to June 15th, 1530.
The artist is known as Monogrammist MS - There are several speculations as to who these initials actually refer to. His illustrations were featured in the first Bible with Luther's translations.
I think its likely that he is the artist of 3 of the four pictures here. The one in the lower right looks like someone else's work.
bdh - nice find!
I don't know much about this game, but it fascinates me. Now, I'm studying to be a Lutheran pastor (which entails a study of ancient Greek) so immediately, several things about that stuck out. The first is the obvious pairing of Luther (reformer) and Gustavus Adolphus (ruler/military mind associated with Lutheranism) as well as Calvin (reformer) and Oliver Cromwell (ruler/military mind associated with Calvinism.) The passage from Deuteronomy likewise about conquest. In the translations of the Greek you have listed, the first one is the most literal, and in my opinion, the most accurate, but I am not too sharp on Ionic Greek. If Luther is a major figure in all of this, I might suggest you get a copy of the Book of Concord, which contains the Augsburg Confession (mentioned in the text in Latin as Confessio Augustina), the Apology to the Augsburg Confession, as well as the other fundamental documents of Lutheranism. Continuing on the theme of Luther, if the guy who made this is a great student of the Reformation, he'll surely note that Luther and Calvin didn't exactly get along. Their followers didn't, either. To this day, the more conservative types of Lutheran insist that they are not "Protestants" as such (a term reserved mostly for Calvinists, in their view). The images of the old paintings (angels blowing trumpets, the harvest being harvested, a heavenly king, martyrs under the alter in heaven, and demons doing something, but I can't tell what) are all obvious references to the Final Judgment found in the New Testament, especially Revelation. Most of this imagery also appears in apocalyptic books of the Old Testament, too. The sickles specifically make me think of the Book of Joel. I'd think that the stained glass could be something along the same lines, but I can't really tell what it's supposed to be. It might also be arch-angels, or something. The pictures are too small, and I can't tell.
I don't know, but I wonder if, when it says Mistah Kurtz will present the new line of jams and jellies, if that could be the new members of the club. I could be way off, but think about it.
I just looked through all the texts and my overall impression is that there is some sort of radio frequency we are supposed to find - perhaps somewhere near the police radio frequencies or ham radio or *something*.
several people have sent in hints regarding the mushroom cloud in the center of the design. I would like to remind them that we've seen the them of harnessing atomic energy repeatedly in the ads. Let's not forget that releasing nuclear energy causes to transmutation. That's big cheese in alchemical circles. Often used as a metaphor for spiritual transformation.
Chartres has been attacked and occupied by Protestants several times (16th C, Franco-Prussian War) and also by the Nazis. The window shown here is devoted to the Glorification of the Virgin. Historically, some Protestants have characterized such iconography as Mariolatry. The nuclear explosion would thus fit in with the martial theme.
Ham radio would certainly fit with all the pork references. I've been toying with the idea of a radio frequency for some time, and that would seem to fit in with the May 2007 announcement where Cromwell's text hinted at extracting a message via "the manner that can be seen by all but used only by us". I'm further pressed to believe that we're dealing with frequencies (specific radio, television, generic electromagnetic?) by the Freak 203 e-mail suggesting a look at all things Chromatic. Mathematically, the chromatic number deals with graph theory and determining how many unique 'colors' may be applied to the vertices of a graph such that no two adjacent vertices share the same color. This is generally used in coloring political maps so that no two countries that share a border are colored the same. Another meaning of chromatic, and the one that screams 'frequency' to me, is the musical chromatic scale. It consists of 7 'natural' notes, and 5 'non-natural notes'. The slip of paper in the 5/16 delivery has the 'chromatic colors' on the front of it with an equation, but the back of the paper has 'Page 1 of 7' on it. This could perhaps reference 1 of the 7 natural notes in the chromatic scale? I don't recognize the formula on the front of the paper, but it does have certain similarities to formulas used to determine the chromatic numbers of graphs. Perhaps there is a way to determine a ham radio frequency using the natural chromatic musical tones and applying graph theory equations to them? Since by this point, we're terrifically past the 6/25 date of the assumed transmission, we may not be able to test any theories, but who knows if this could apply to future Maydays. Of course, I could be truly over analyzing, and seeing patterns where there really are none.
Comments: Each block of mathematics is sitting inside a triangle in hyperbolic space. I believe the names facing one another (ie. Calvin-Luther) are joined by parallel lines in hyperbolic space. This means the figure is a cross in non-Euclidean space with the priests at top and bottom and the warriors on each side. As noted by another commenter, the mathematics describes relativistic effects, which require non-Euclidean geometry. Interestingly, the atomic explosion in the center is an example of a quantum-relativistic effect. Quantum mechanics explains how the hydrogen molecules are able to transmute into helium and relativity describes the transformation of mass into energy. What this all means, I cannot say.
Comments: As for Mistah Kurtz: he's dead... Mista Kurtz is a character in Joseph Contad's novel Heart of Darkness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_of_Darkness) Poet T.S. Elliot used the quote "Mistah Kurtz - he dead" as an epigraph to his poem The Hollow Men (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hollow_Men) The mentioned Portuguese Licor Regional is grape juice fortified with grape spirits and goes by the name of Numantinu: http://www.lusawines.com/ vinho.asp?ref=711#|price_d[vin] It is produced by the mentioned Cooperation. The mentioned "jams and jellies as per [12 CFR}" seem to point at a code of Federal Regulations concerning jams and jellies, however the actual code for those is not 12 CFR but 21CFR. 12 CFR is the Code of Fedral Regulation concerning Banks and Banking... Should we maybe read 'banks and banking' for 'introducing our new line of jams and jellies'?
Comments: 39.987411 -74.247853 Triangulate the three Banks given above and find that. Also, smiley has seven hairs now, TAKE NOTE. Do you think anything is unimportant?
Your solution goes like this. The answer is 42, the number of Judges of the Underworld and the Name of God. The Pyramids hold the Key of Solomon. They are a mathematical map that point the way to the New Jerusalem, the city of Edinburgh. It is 4/42nds west of the Great Pyramid and 3/42nds north. Inscribed in the landscape by the Knights Templar are all the essential clues that reveal the secret of ALL SECRETS. Begin your education by accessing this site: www.kheraha.co.uk/ By clicking on the π symbol a doorway will open to the truth. Mohammed said, 'And over it is nineteen'! The √1444 = 38 (2x19) The angle of the third pyramid at Giza from the Great Pyramid is 2/19ths west, tangent 0.777. It indicates an important longitude west of the Great Pyramid, which itself defines the gravitational zero meridian at 31.1344 degrees East. The Gematria of the O.T. is the mathematics of the Giza pyramids and they are the map pointing the way home. History, particularly the geography of the O.T., has been a lie since Helena, mother of Constantine, found a piece of the 'True Cross' in Palestine. She was a pagan Briton who understood a different version of the lie she created. All is in full view. It is a description of how the Earth vibrates as a set of frequencies in TIME, one day of which is 616 years, x 42 = the precessional cycle. The pattern can be analyzed from the acid rain data in the Greenland Ice Sheet. Every 13000 years the Earth rings like a bell, it is about to strike again. Be prepared - and stop the game now. You are being manipulated in ways you don't understand. It's time for a reality check. GNOWER, a friend in the Wilderness.
Comments: Two things: 1. Bryan, have we seen this Gnower guy before? Gnower, if you are still looking at this site could you possibly explain how you arrived at your conclusions? If you are going to say such negative things you should tell us how you've come about these realizations. A declaration like this without evidence or proof makes your statement hollow. 2. When I first looked at the images in this announcement my first thought was about paper money. Of course the Federal Bank seals added to this idea. The two are related though. The techniques involved in making these woodcuts did in fact lead to the development of the technology used in printing paper currency.
I highly recommend people see the movie Zeigeist. You can watch it online free of charge. I thought it might be significant to mention as it deals with the Federal Reserve System and how it could very well be the downfall of this country. Look at it this way, the Fed manufactures money and then LOANS it to banks with interest. This interest is equal to the face value of the currency combined with outstanding debt. Also, by having control of HOW MUCH money goes into circulation, they are able to control inflation. This all leads to a never ending spiral of debt and inflation, all work of the hands of the Fed. Maybe that's why the Federal Bank Seals are on images from Revelation. One theory about the Securities act of 1933- This was the year that brought the removal of the Gold Standard. People were "required on or before May 1, 1933 (coincidence?) to deliver all gold coin, bullion, and certificates to a Federal Reserve Bank, branch or any agency, or to any member bank of the Federal Reserve System." I think most of you understand the ramifications of this action, but understand that during this time the Federal Reserve System was controlled by a few very powerful individuals. Another interesting result of this is that many of the 1933-S St. Gaudens $20 double eagle were melted by the mint before they reached public hands. Today it is the one of the rarest and most valuable of all US coins. The last one appeared at a public auction in July of 2002 and sold for a whopping $7,590,020 in July of 2002. My question is, who's side does the Orphanage take in this matter.
Comments: Not sure of the relevance but the picture in the upper right quadrant has the text "Ve Ve Ve", which also appears as a qoute from a religous sermon as - "Ve, ve, ve, quanto sunt tenebre. Ve quia deum offendi ... Ve quia diabolo concensi." (http://www.hull.ac.uk/middle_english_sermons/more.php?search_fd0=2092&PHPSESSID=f606a57a1c46cf72fe29ed2...) Not being a latin speaker I can't get a good translation. And I can't help thinking the V's are linked to the "Veni Vidi Vici" on the tie.
I just began viewing this site in the last few days. I've scanned a few pages concerning SR/CL at the beginning of each page. Since many of the clues have some biblical/religious reference here is how I related the SR/CL biblically. The / usually stands for ratio. It's often used when applying chemical ratios. While the letters are all capitalized SR could stand for strontium (Sr)and CL could stand for chlorine (Cl). Strontium has an atomic number of 38 and chlorine has atomic number of 17. Instead of expressing the chemical in a ratio of Sr/Cl, substitute the atomic numbers for the chemicals which would be 38/17. The atomic number ratio for the chemicals would would be 38/17. Since number ratios can be expressed with a :, substitute : for /. This would leave 38:17. When you google 38:17 you arrive at many biblical references. Here is a link for all the biblical verses 38:17, http://bibleq.com/search?site=biblecc&client=default_frontend&proxystylesheet=custom4&filter=0&num=100&output=xml_no_dtd&btnG=Search&q=38%3a17 In regards to ORATE PRO NOBIS. This is a Litany of the Saints. It is plural asking more than one saint to "pray for us". The pictures show the second coming of Christ which signifies the "end times". Given the recent banking crisis, the money symbols on the pictures might signify the end of monetary stability which leads to overall world crisis. The Federal Room is probably a clue regarding the banking laws. Baylor college and a Federal Room where the federal law documents are kept. Since there is a reference to federal law, the Federal Room might be a clue to where the federal law document concerning the banking laws are located.
Figured it couldn't hurt to pass this along although I personally wouldn't want to anger the freaks. Don't think I'd care much for Gnower but don't fear his/her/ wrath the way I do the freaks. The freaks don't forgive or forget, ever. They may wait but they don't forget and they don't forgive. So why all this prolog? 616 (mentioned by Gnower who is almost certainly not a freak) is found in many manuscripts as the alternate number for 666. Some of your readers who understand a critical apparatus could tell you which verse and which papyri or manuscripts and so on. If the freaks have mentioned the Knights Templar I can't remember seeing it but perhaps someone else has. Personally I think they might use knowledge of the sort Gnower has as a conduit without believing any of it. I do think they believe the in the C.A., which is easily the scariest thing about them. For an entirely different set of reasons (than Gn.), be careful, Mr. Hance.
A bit more context about "hirelings": this was used particularly as a term of abuse in the mid-17th C controversies about episocopacy in England. Milton, for instance, wrote an anti-Erastian tract with the word "hireling" in its very long title, using it to refer to state-funded members of a church hierarchy. I don't know what relevance this would have in an American context, strictly speaking, though, unless we consider tax-exemption to be state funding. [[more from a 2nd submission]] I've seen that people have made this observation before, but it bears repeating: these texts are clearly an example of bricolage. Ever since the beginning, however, the bits and pieces have come primarily from books. Using internet search engines indiscriminately is only going to add noise to the commentary. The early communications mention with contempt those contributors who only seem to know what they learn from the web, and that was nearly ten years ago. The text on this page, for example, may have been deliberately designed to be resistant to random googling. You have to be able to transliterate the Heraclitus quote, for example, and know how to contextualize (-numerize?) the equations. There's also far more image to text than is normal, so you have to know something about the subject and style of painting to identify it reliably. [[more from a 3rd submission]] Another lead on the nuclear references: we used to hear a lot (and still do) about disaffected former Soviet scientists selling their nuclear weapons expertise on the black market, etc. Though there are fewer of them, South Africa also has disaffected nuclear engineers. South Africa figures prominently in these texts. The colonial background and the role of the Dutch Reformed Church in the creation of the South African state are probably two obvious reasons why. Maybe the utopian ideal here is to establish an autonomous commune (modeled on Calvin's Geneva in terms of religious liberty and personal freedoms, I suspect) and build nukes to ward away the ATF. A pastoral version of North Korea.
After having browsed around some of this stuff I think that SR/CL is probably 38:17 and since it is a chemical compound that turns red when burned, it also probably symbolizes the Labour party in some way; being that all this stuff is on May Day, the most popular date for “Labour Day”, and red is their predominant color. That says to me that SR/CL actually means Job 38:17. Job = "Labour." Job 38:17 says: "Have the gates of death been opened unto thee or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?" Since the picture says SR/CL: Leitmotiv, I take that to mean that Job 38:17 is a reoccurring theme according to the authors. Thus, the authors are trying to say that we as a civilization have seen the potential for total annihilation time and time again, and that the along with the weeping philosopher cry that we as a civilization have not “changed our ways.” They go on to say SR/CL: Leitmotiv: “If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it; for it is hard to be sought out and difficult. - - Heraclitus ("the weeping philosopher") - >known for his doctrine of change being central to the universe, and that the Logos is the fundamental order of all, according to Wikipedia. I think this also serves to those who don’t necessarily subscribe to the idea of Christianity, as the author’s way of saying: “This holds true to you, because it is rooted in logic.” I also think that this Greek quote is somewhat parallel to this bible passage: Rev. 16:15 “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” I take all of that to actually mean that the authors believe that we are on the verge of total annhilation, and that the Rapture prophesied in the Holy Bible is soon. It is a warning to all those who Christ saved to be vigilant, and wait, that the time is near for His return, and statement to those not saved to be warned, and seek out Jesus Christ. Since there is a nuclear explosion in the middle of the picture, I take that as a symbol of ultimate change / destruction / the doors of the shadow of death. I take the mathematical stuff which “point” from the four names to be simply a symbol of logic, they aren’t meant to be solved, or the entire equations would have been listed; not the cut off versions. Since they point from the religious figures’ names, (all protestant and believers that Jesus Christ ensured a direct conduit of communication and salvation from man to God), to the circle of 12 (possibly representing the 12 disciples of Christ) I take that to mean, that it is logical and correct to follow the four names’ ideas on Christianity, and that they are truly “derived” from the 12 apostles accounts on the life of Jesus Christ. The reason the authors took the picture of Christ out of the middle and replaced it with an explosion is, in my opinion, to represent the rapture. These things seem to be more of a warning to Christians and all people to be ready, and that the authors believe that the day of Judgement (obviously the 4 quadrants representing the final Judgement) is closer than ever. Their proof that we are close is in the idea, that we have developed such a lust for destruction, a.k.a. weapons of mass destruction and a society that is based on money, not Christ. I think that the Federal Reserve symbols further indicate that the love of money, or the idea of money will be judged during Rapture, and that money or the idea of it is not the key to heaven but a something that will be judged along with people in the end of days. Notice that the symbols all exist in heaven in judgement scenes, not on Earth as in the upper right quadrant. I take that to mean, that during the Rapture, as a reminder that your money will not save you, it will only serve as a subject of judgement in Heaven. The angel in the top is most likely “looking” for followers of God to take back. Deuteronomy 7:2 further supports my interpretation ”And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them:” Basically reinforcing the idea of the end of days; by saying not to believe those who say God doesn't exist. Although I know that this verse doesn't directly mean that, I think if used in this context it does. Don’t know if this is right at all of course, but I think it might help with some other interpretations.
Comments: Wow this is definitely one of my favorite clues. Starting at the beginning, yep a nuclear detonation, a release of massive amounts of energy, placed in the center of a cross, a nuclear blast being an intersection between the earth and the heavens/the material and the energy plane. Shoot, I could even say much more about shrooms, but I think we all get the idea. I got the translation for the top quote from Heraclitus: "If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it; for it is hard to be sought out and difficult." The next thing that caught my mind was the Fed. reserve L. I get that the fed is failing and that it will most probably herald in the end of times. We have been trying to provoke a war with Iran ever since the whole gulf thing started, preferring instead to look to Afghanistan and Iraq for a long time. Newt Gingrich wants to preemptively attack Iran to undermine their stability and economy, especially since they started producing Oil at a competitive level and are supposed to be working on a nuke, although I don't think they have one and its just more of an excuse to go to war. So anyway the L caught my eye, probably because it is positioned rightsideup. Sooo I followed it clockwise around the quadrants. L-E-A. Ok, triangulated roughly and ended up somewhere between nebraska and kansas. That can't be anything.... looked to the upper right quadrant... VE VE VE. LEAVE! So when the bomb goes off, and the fed starts folding because everyone is freaking out for various reasons, Leave your money behind, perhaps? DOn't rely on it anymore? Leave your home and venture out into the wilderness? Well Heraclitus said it wasn't going to come about easily... And it's the only picture of the four over cities. Also the Ve Ve Ve heralds in the end of times and calls the peeps out to be judged. Ve literally means "Woe" in Latin. The whole hymn is: Ve, ve, ve, quanto sunt tenebre. Ve quia deum offendi ... Ve quia diabolo concensi. Woe to, or, or, how much are the shadows. Or because it offends God ... Or consent for the devil. Seems to me that the -x-y coordinate is the archangels looking in the book of life on judgement day. Folks are waitin around lookin apprehensive. Either that or it's the Fed (symbolically) being exposed and stripped naked (one fellow is pulling the altar cloth). And we have heard about the upper left, judgement day scene. The angels are harvesting the good eggs. If our new lines of jams and jellies features a federal deposit regulation, well, why not look at that to see what jams and jellies are? I found this: (b) The exemption in ? 204.2(a)(1)(vii)(A) applies to obligations owed by a depository institution to a domestic office of any entity listed in that section (the exempt institutions). The exempt institutions explicitly include another depository institution, foreign bank, Edge or agreement corporation, New York Investment (article XII) Company, the Export-Import Bank of the United States, Minbanc Capital Corp., and certain other credit sources. The term exempt institutions also includes subsidiaries of depository institutions. http://cfr.vlex.com/vid/204-depository-institution-ldquo-rdquo-19621333 I got to be honest, I am not sure how exactly that fits, but I think these fellas have to fund whatever it is they are up to somehow. There is tons of fraud in the black market, I've seen it go down.. Im gonna jump forward and say this: these people are ushering in the end of times. undermining government in every way possible. Talking so much about disease, chemicals, military like coordinates.... etc. etc. At first I wasn't sure if they were black market communist anonymous types... or the supposed Illuminati. They seem to be on both sides. I thought England and the U.S.A. were going to bring about one government under socialism (the agenda), but now i think these fellas are into it. The actual profile i would give them is something like, "Russian-born communist orphaned orthodox Jewish scholar counter-culture revolutionaries." There is so much education and scholarly stuff in here.. perhaps they have their hands in legitimate money as well as the black market/drug dealing/credit card fraud stuff... Anyway, so we all know we are headed for nuclear war. I think these people want us to throw away our money at the first sign of the apocalypse so that the world will be unstable enough to instill their New World Order. The two sides of a supposed war don't seem that different at all. I thought moral communism would be a great way to live, and I thought it would be fun to try to bring it about, I even have a solid idea on how to do it, and this reads like a bunch of borderline lunatics are gonna do it for everyone in the name of God. Um. Is that good? Oh yeah, while nuclear war is occurring... IDK i would chill with them. Beats these powder headed lizards crawling around the sold world now. I apologize for teh way my comments read. This puzzle had my head spinning for 2 days. I don't even want to get into the math and physics aspects. There is so much going on here. This is a top dog secret society. I'm gonna go with my original answer: Lulzsec. Hit me up fellas- there's no intelligent life down here. Seriously. Get me out of this. LOL like i have a choice. I just want the end of the world to be fun for me toooooo
Someone wrote that the Freaks envisage "a pastoral version of North Korea." Can't say for sure but from what else we see from the Freaks, North Korea would be Gallo's third squeezings. Pale stuff not worth emulating.
Does the 12 circles relate to the 12 apostles, or the 12 Federal Reserve Banks? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Reserve_Bank#Banks

you may find it useful that all four are found “not merely coloured, but are beautifully painted with blue, green and red cover colours” Luther contributed ideas to the image designs of the engraver and for the finished result a third also added his hand – their embellishment became part of the precious art, and the fingerprint to identify. cf paperslipfront
