Of William Henry, the Capitol Dome, Stargates, and Battlestar Galactica



Posted below is a fairly recent interview with William Henry. For the discussion of the Capitol dome and stargate metaphysics, skip ahead to video 7. The first six are more focused on the Norway spiral and a somewhat paranoid read on the climate conference. I've discussed Henry's analysis of the Capitol dome and Brumidi's fresco previously here and here. Now that I'm back in the DC area, I'm determined to fight my way up I95 to visit the Capitol and see this for myself. Maybe I'll take the train. Time is a precious commodity.

In this interview Henry also points out that stargate images are turning up in art and sculpture all over the place and suggests that we could be having a collective awakening. I totally agree. But it was when I looked at the image of the dome above, that it clicked for me just how powerful a trigger that image is.




In my original review of Battlestar Galactica, I described my fixation with an image in my head very reminiscent of Kara Thrace's fixation: the Eye of Jupiter.




See here for some background on the geometry and symbolism of eyes and why they speak to something seminal in our consciousness. This particular image of spheres within spheres is one that has entranced me for years. I thought seriously at one time about doing a giant canvas of that image. I never got around to it, and frankly, I'm not much of a painter. But the following image looks very similar to what I saw in my head for a period of years. Stare at it for a while. It's hypnotic.




Coincidentally, or not, I first became borderline obsessed with that image when I was last living in the DC area. At the time, the most obvious association to me was the iris and pupil of the physical eye, which speaks to seminal sacred geometry depicting creation itself. William Henry's work points out another correlation which is the stargate images he's found in numerous paintings depicting resurrection and, now, in the Capitol dome and in Constantino Brumidi's fresco "The Apotheosis of George Washington."

It occurs to me that these two things are interrelated. As Henry and others have suggested, the human body may be a dormant stargate opening, resurrection machine. What awakens and activates it is the kundalini energy which rises up the spine and opens the pineal gland, or third eye. I should also point out that Battlestar Galactica is replete with kundalini imagery:

  • The Pythia prophecies which Laura Roslin (rose: symbol of the Virgin Mary) accesses by taking kamala extract (lotus).
  • The spines in humanoid cylons glow red when they have sex.
  • Cylons have a single eye like a cyclops, in the middle of the forehead, evocative of the third eye. Colonel Tigh also ends up with one eye. ("The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light." ~ Matthew 6:22)
  • The use of "All Along the Watchtower" as the key to awakening the cylons and Kara Thrace and leading them through the Eye of Jupiter (pineal gland). Tower images are often used as symbols of the spine as the conduit for kundalini. See here for some background.



Coincidentally, William Henry references another Jimi Hendrix song, "Purple Haze," in this interview; one actually written by him. ("All Along the Watchtower" was written by Bob Dylan.) He describes a far more esoteric inspiration than the generally accepted purple haze marijuana theme. I say listen to the songs, which are both in the player above and make up your  own mind. I've also included a Battlestar Galactica tribute version. About a third of the way through that video, there's a nice image of Kara Thrace's obsessional painting of the Eye of Jupiter.




It also shows the emblem. At a certain point, it all seem kind of obvious.
