In The Time Machine poster we also find the 88. One in reference to 800,000 years, and the other in the Inifinity symbol beneath the title.
Jump start the future.
The number 88 has an interesting connection with Time as the DeLorean automobile must attain 88 miles per hour in order to travel in time.
88 seems to symbolize the moment when the Lightning strikes.
My parents gave my son Zion this remote control car for his Xmas. Notice again how 88 entrains with the Lightning Bolt.
Last week I sat down and watched Megamind with my kids.
Coincidentally this takes place about 8 minutes 8 seconds into the movie.
There's even a subtle 88 via the wires in the van behind camera-man Titan.
Who wouldn't want to be part of O-Ren Ishii's Cazy 88 Army?
You'd be mad not to!!!
88 seems to represent the Whole:
The International Astronomical Union (IAU) divides the sky into 88 official constellations with precise boundaries, so that every direction belongs to exactly one constellation. These are mostly based upon the constellations of the ancient Greek tradition, passed down through the Middle Ages.
88 seems to encompass our own Golden Globe (the Earth/hEart) but it also expands out to the cosmos surrounding our planet.
To Infinity and Beyond...
In Chinese culture
Eighty-eight (88) symbolizes fortune and good luck since the word 8 sounds similar to the word Fā (发, which implies 发财, or wealth, in Mandarin). The number 8 is considered to be the luckiest number of all in Chinese culture and prices in Chinese supermarkets can often be found containing many 8's (see numbers in Chinese culture). The Chinese government has even been auctioning auto license plates containing many 8s for tens of thousands of dollars. The 2008 Beijing Olympics opened on 8/8/08 at 8 p.m.
88 is used to mean "bye bye"; found in Chinese-language chat, text, SMS, IM. 88 is pronounced in Chinese Mandarin language as "ba ba" ("bā bā" to be precise), simulating the sound of the English language farewell "bye bye".
From Wiki we learn that 88 is considered Lucky aka Lucy:
(*maybe I should go and activ8 the golden Lottery card I recently received in the post!)
From Wiki we also learn learned that:
88 =Ba Ba = Baby
Earlier on today I was thinking about the number 88 (and contemplating writing this very post) when I came across this packet of 'baby soft' wipes...which helps confirm the 88/BaBa/Baby connection.
It feels appropri8 to round this 8-ball off with the video itself.
The Nic Cage movie Ghost Rider begins with a Full Moon...
Today, Thursday January 20th, we have a Full Moon.
In the movie title we see the letters RING touching the Fire.
Things get sillier if we look at a scene where The Green Hornet and Kato (K2?) have a bust up.
Kato grabs on and makes his way to safety, clambering up and out of the pool with the help of his blow up Lobster.
In the Tarot we see that the Lobster climbs out of the primordial waters only to find a new path awaiting him...
Good Luck on your journey, wherever it may take you.
I know Elizabeth Shue as the prostitute who falls in love with suicidal alcoholic Nicholas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas.
She recently caught my attention in the hilarious Hamlet 2. One scene, which also happens to be the last scene, shows just how mind blowing and textured sync (our ever emerging non-local Mind) can be. Even having a good sense of profoundly layered humor.
Steve Coogan talks about having "made it", having a fancy bidet in his dressing room. Shue responds: "That was a sink (sync)". Perfect as right behind her appears the numbers 412. That was indeed a sync, Shue.
We find these numbers nested inside of the Jupiter symbol, which we can unpack in many ways. 412 pretty much covers the gamut.
Last night I started Hollow Man with Shue, which I hadn't seen since being a teenager hanging with my buddies at the theater in South Africa. It felt appropriate as I had watched Memoirs of an Invisible Man days previous and ran into H.G Wells' The Invisible Man while browsing a bookstore earlier.
Kevin Bacon calls up Shue, very early in the morning, waking her up with the ringing of the phone. This is also the first time we see Shue in Hollow Man. She says "Oh, my God" at this rude awaking and we notice it is 4:12. This makes perfect sense as 412 points to Jupiter and Jupiter is God. The syncs are giving us a rude awakening from our slumber of being separate from God.
Oh, and I was in the bookstore looking at Wells' The Invisible Man after going to the theater to see Barney's Version (great film) which included a preview of Paul (voiced by Seth "Green Hornet" Rogen), the alien who can turn invisible.
I'm thinking of Invisibility as good metaphor for Cosmic Consciousness (like Paul the ET). Just like a fish can be oblivious of the water inside and around of it, we too can miss the very fabric of all that allows for our existence. The tongue can't taste itself, just like us, as facets of God, can miss the very thing we are. The tongue is invisible to itself and God is invisible to God. This is the weird ouroborus snake of consciousness that kinda makes your head want to pop when you get it. Yet this pop feels good as the real us is unleashed by POP.
We see Shue and BACON (nicely echoing HAMlet 2, a movie already connected Hollow Man via Shue & 412) having this syncnificant exchange:
In Back to the Future Part 2 Shue plays Jennifer Parker/Jennifer McFly, replacing actress Claudia Wells from Part 1, which is kinda jarring and weird but works wonders with our syncs.
Above Doc Brown points at the fuel for his Time Machine, Miller (Eagle/Zeus/Jupiter).
Doc Brown says the magick 88 with Jennifer/Sheu in shot, having no idea about what she has just gotten into. 88 mph rounds down to 142 kph, these numbers miraculously attracting to Shue again.
88 is Bacon's pulse as he is being prepped to become invisible in Hollow Man.
The 88 of the DVD's subtitles hits Shue.
In the future Shue hides in a closet spying on her "to be" in laws who are entraining with the WTC.
In Adventures In Babysitting she sings about the Stars as her Star title appears on screen. The Stars in the sky and movie Stars are mirrors, shining with Gods reflected glory.
Baba is what we call a baby in Afrikaans & Richard says Ba Ba is 88.
In this films Shue encounters "Thor" the god of Thunder, a clear variant of Jupiter.
"Thor" is backed by the Red Clock.
The Joy of Sync aligns us with the non-local Self, creating all places and times right NOW, turning us into Time Travelers.
Richard: When it rains it pours!
I turn the page of chapter 101 and suddenly have a Holy Shit! moment as I'm confronted by the 88.
You've gotta love the universes sense of humor. :D
