If you read the Secret Sun (why the heaven wouldn't you? :p) you know that Mr. Knowles had received some Heath material through e-mail. All credit goes to Marita, who piled up an amazing list of synchs (Peggy from So What was one of the synchromystics that also received the info, and so this post ends up very similar, we share the sin eater load ;p). I felt up for this cause I just watched one of my favorite movies The Crow again and had to think of Heath right away. Posting this took my entire evening (4 damn hours :p) though, but! It was fun. Gotta love the mystery. (Tip: Do not google for harlequin, baby fetuses straight from the X-files :p). Update: The Dark Knight is in theaters, rates 9.6 after 7000+ votes (I think I saw 9.7 earlier today) on imdb and is the #3 best rated movie of all time there after The Godfather & The Shawshank Redemption.

There is such an amazing list of synchronicities I really have no idea how this will end up, and would rather post a huge freaking mind-map of connections on that touch-hologram technology you see in movies, gimme gimme. With blogger technology (which I truly hate after typing a long post, why does every damn online editor need its own damn code?) I'm afraid you'll have to do with text and pics (click to enlarge, if you have firefox, click middle mouse button to open in a new tab).

Heath Ledger, died at 28, played a Joker in a Winged black thing movie and died before its release. He died on 22 Jan 2008. Authopsy Inconclusive. At about 2:45 PM (2:9, 9/11, yay), Ledger was found unconscious in his fourth-floor loft apartment in Manhattan. The emergency workers arrived at 3:33 PM. Check this out, the cleaning lady Theresa Solomon (lol, siriusly) called Mary-Kate Olsen twice before calling the police... Who you gonna call? :p Apparently an Olsen Twin when you have an unconscious/dead body on your hands. If calling a girl twice before 911 in a situation like this makes sense to you consider this *SLAP* a smack in yo face and have some *SPLASH* water with that. Awake now? Let's continue. About every damn article you find on Heath's death states things differently, isn't that peculiar? Here's another version about the masseuse who was with the cleaning lady, apparently in this version she was the one who called Olsen Rescue. Heath, like the first 2 other synch-folks following, talked about dying before his death. See youtube vid.
Just a 'few' connections:
* Brandon Lee, died at 28, played a harlequin named Eric Draven in a Winged black thing movie and died before its release. He was pronounced dead at 1:30pm on March 31 (notice the mirrored nrs), 1993. Brandon Lee also talked about dying before his death:
In an interview just prior to his death, Lee quoted a passage from Paul Bowles' book The Sheltering Sky that he had chosen for his wedding invitations; it is now inscribed on his tombstone:* James Dean, who starred in a play called Scarecrow, also died before finishing a movie, named Giant. He also has a weird talk about death before dying moment:
"Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you cannot conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless..."
The quotation is not attributed to Bowles in either Lee's final interview or on his tombstone, leading some fans to the mistaken impression that Lee composed the passage himself. The interview can be seen on VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray releases of the The Crow.
While completing Giant (also died before its release), and to promote Rebel Without a Cause, Dean filmed a short interview with actor Gig Young for an episode of Warner Bros. Presents in which Dean, instead of saying the popular phrase "The life you save may be your own" instead ad-libbed "The life you save may be mine." Dean's sudden death prompted the studio to re-film the section, and the piece was never aired - though in the past several sources have referred to the footage, mistakenly identifying it as a public service announcement. (The segment can, however, be viewed on both the 2001 VHS and 2005 DVD editions of Rebel Without a Cause).* Bérenger Saunière, also died on the 22 Jan 1917, he suffered a major stroke on the 17th jan after last appearing in public on the 12th jan. He like Ledger was found by his housekeeper. See Atlantean Times for this scoop.
* Paul Raven (Killing Joke Bassist), Raven died of an apparent heart attack in his sleep on October 20th, 2007. (46 years old). See Secret Sun for this scoop.
** Also Anna Nicole Smith (scroll down for this one) and a person named Christian Brando (seriously!) who also had pneumonia like Smith and Ledger, and the latters death was reported by the National Ledger.
* Neeeext! Nick Drake, a british singer who died in eerily similar circumstances... Geez!
From this site: The strongest case that glorifies Ledger and Drake's similarities is Ledger's recently created music video for Drake's song "Black Eyed Dog." The video, which was produced completely by Ledger, depicts Ledger as the sole subject. At the video's close, Ledger turns the hand-held camera on himself and slowly drowns himself in a bathtub. The most bewildering and hair-raising aspect of this is that "Black Eyed Dog" is known as Drake's very last recording - allegedly recorded right before his death. The song is also known as being about dealing with depression.
The Crow, the Joker and the Bat.
Adapted from James O’Barr’s 1989 graphic novel, The Crow is a marvelously dark and exciting film... It willfully celebrates the Gothic nihilism of the modern graphic novel and is indeed the most darkly exhilarating of all filmed comic-book adaptations to emerge in the wake of Batman (also 1989)." Darker than the Bat? Hmm! (enlarge pic on the left)
Mirrors are used in both The Crow & the original Batman as well as The Brothers Grimm in which Heath stars too. In the first Batman movie Jack Nicholson breaks a handheld mirror and starts laughing, in the Crow movie Brandon Lee smashes the window at the desk of the house where he was killed.
Mirrors are a typical minD Control element as explained by Fritz Springmeier in this interview:
Wayne Morris: What do you mean by that? The mirroring of an alter?
Fritz Springmeier: Mirroring of all kinds of things. That's part of the technique of deceit.
Wayne Morris: That's the purpose of using this mirroring, for example if a therapist came across one alter, dealt with, there may have been a mirror of that ...
Fritz Springmeier: A lot of the therapists think they are dealing with a particular personality but they are dealing with its mirror image. The systems are programmed, created so that if somebody starts working with them there are all these defensive mechanisms that are triggered. One of the defensive mechanisms is to have mirror image alters take the place of who the therapist is trying to work with. So the therapist thinks they have done something but they have actually just played games. Mirror images of things within the programming itself so that when one particular personality tries to work on their mind's programming, the mind is so confusing about what they still internally - that they can't figure out their own mind. The best manager is somebody who doesn't have to spend a lot of time giving instructions to a person. If you are a slave master and you have to be constantly telling that slave what to do, and constantly correcting it, and making sure it's doing its job, you become a slave to the slave. What you want to do is create a human robot which will be self-directed and self-correcting so they create hierarchies of alters within the person and one of the things they do is create alter personalities within the person's mind who think they are the programmer themself.
So, Ewen Cameron who was a programmer - his victim would have personalities within them that would think they are Ewen Cameron. Therefore they would carry out the abuse of other personalities as they would perceive Ewen Cameron would do it. That's one use of mirrors. Another use of mirrors is if you are teaming two slaves together, let's say you and are teamed. I would have personalities in me that think they are you and you would have personalities created in you that think they are me and it would further the binding process.
Here is Heath featured in a mirror in the Dark Knight, in The Brothers Grimm the Mirror Queen sees her old ass reflection. The Mirror Queen steals young girls for her own youth after a spell blabla. Her youthful appearance now only exists in her mirror, the source of her life (the source of an alter's life), as an illusion and nothing more.
I (Dedroidifydoo) stumble upon this piece o' gold:
Matt Damon: "There's that scene where I say, 'You're the fairest of them all,' but then [at the moment I'm about to kiss her] Jacob - Heath Ledger - breaks all the mirrors, and she turns and screams. So we do the scene like nine times, and finally, on the 10th take, I get really close to her lips, and say, 'You're the fairest of them all,' and then, before he has a chance to do it, I turn [to Ledger] and say, 'Don't break that fucking mirror!'"Ouch, poor Heath who took his Joker role too seriously. At the ending of The Brothers Grimm the words "And they all lived happily ever after..." appear on screen. However, a crow flies over this cheerful scene with a surviving fragment of the Mirror Queen's terrified, staring eye in its beak and the message on screen changes to "...well, maybe not."
Bellucci is the best sort of beautiful woman: someone who makes the distinction between her beauty and herself. "They might be fairy tales," she says of the stories in The Brothers Grimm, "but behind every one there is a meaning. I think The Mirror Queen is very appropriate for actors. We [actors] are victims of our own vanity."
The moral of this story? "Don't," says the most beautiful woman in the room, "take your image too seriously."
Geez, how many dark flying things can you put into this guys life?
Let's take a look at the Crow
Crows: Known as the clowns of the bird world.
Check out this still from the movie the Crow where brandon lee lights the floor to make a Phoenix, another symbol of death and rebirth like the Crow, notice in the pic below how Heath played the Phoenix in A Knight's Tale.
In the United States it is legal to hunt crows in all states usually from around August to the end of March and anytime if they are causing a nuisance or health hazard. There is no bag limit when taken during the "crow hunting season." Notice that every single sync-person listed died in this period.
Native American tradition: Crow is an omen of Change. Crow lives in the void and has no sense of time, therefore, it sees past, present and future simultaneously. Crow merges both light and dark, both inner and outer. It is the totem of the Great Spirit and must be respected as such.
The crow as an archetype: Archetypical crows are also compared to the Jester/Trickster - "Mythic poets," Poet Ted Hughes wrote in 'Shakespeare and the Goddess of Complete Being', "...seem to be a distinct biological type". In their work, beneath the "surface glitter of the plot", there lies a deep "mythic plane" where, as for the Occult Neoplatonists of Shakespeare's time, "all archaic mythological figures and events are available as a thesaurus of glyphs or token symbols". Hughes was interested in Occult Neo-Platonism, in Cabbalah, and in Alchemy and he was knowledgeable about all these arts.
Hughes, therefore, makes it clear that Crow has many characteristics in common with Man. Also, given the cheeky, interfering, amoral, destructive and sometimes constructive personality which emerges through the medium of Crow's "life and songs", plus Hughes' own predilection for mythological archetypes, the comparison of Crow with the Trickster figure common in many mythologies is natural.
By adopting and developing this trickster figure Hughes was, therefore, extending his exploration into his own mind and (if Jung is correct in his interpretation of Trickster) into the human mind in general. In so doing, Hughes extended the death/rebirth theme of his poetry to include the idea of spiritual growth and rebirth for Man, which is a most important part of the Trickster Cycle.
In the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Chaldean myth, the character Utnapishtim releases a dove and a raven to find land, however, the dove merely circles and returns. Only then does Utnapishtim send forth the raven, who does not return. Utnapishtim extrapolates from this that the raven has found land, which is why it hasn't returned. This would seem to indicate some acknowledgement of crow intelligence, which may have been apparent even in ancient times, and to some might imply that the higher intelligence of crows, when compared to other birds, is striking enough that it was known even then.
In occult circles, distinctions are sometimes made between crows and ravens. In mythology and folklore as a whole, crows tend to be symbolic more of the spiritual aspect of death, or the transition of the spirit into the afterlife. whereas ravens tend more often to be associated with the negative (physical) aspect of death. However, few if any individual mythologies or folklores make such a distinction, and there are ample exceptions.
Let's take a look at The Joker
The Crow is the Clown of the Birds. The Trickster, joker, harlequin. Here is the Fool of the Tarot.
The Fool is the spirit in search of experience. He represents the mystical cleverness bereft of reason within us, the childlike ability to tune into the inner workings of the world. Well, Heath sure had experiences.
Heath as another harlequin/joker appearance in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. He also had a small role in Clowning Around.
Heath Ledger is the third young star to die who has been shown in the media before or after the fact wearing clown makeup or face paint. Brandon Lee - died while filming The Crow. He, like Ledger, was also 28 when he died on March 31, 1993. Who dies from a fake bullet? Anna Nicole Smith - died of a drug overdose and/or pneumonia. After her death, photos surfaced of her in strange clown makeup that were plastered all over the media. She died on Feb. 8, 2007 in room 607. Like Ledger and Brando (CHRISTIAN Brando has died - Jan 26, 2008 - check the 2nd post in this article for ANOTHER synch), she had pneumonia. The first link pimps this URL as a thread with good ritual murder info.

update: click here for the vid of Anna Nicole thanks to PseudOccult Media. Here's a fascinating article by freeman, scroll down for Anna Nicole.
In I'm not there: He plays Bob Dylan, Dylan was referred to as the Jester in Don McLean's song American Pie. I almost forgot, isn't there a scene somewhere in Brokeback Mountain with rodeo clowns in the backround. (this is copy pasted from Marita, I haven't seen Brokeback Mountain, nor do I intend to :p I can't even watch regular westerns easily, so, you know... lol.)
Jokes and Crows: Russell Crowe is NOT in The Dark Knight
Source: Superhero Hype! August 24, 2007
A rumor is spreading online that Russell Crowe will make a cameo appearance in The Dark Knight, but it's not true. The rumor comes from one site's (we won't mention who) failure to recognize that Christian Bale was completely joking a few days ago at a press day for 3:10 to Yuma. Bale didn't want to talk about "Dark Knight" (understandably so, considering the press day was for another movie) and threw that out as a joke.
Speaking of Dark Knights, So not only is the crow related to the joker, but also to the Dark Knight. Evoquing Dagonet, who in some versions of King Arthur lore was a Knight as well as a Jester. Not to mention Ledger was in a Knight's Tale, which wether the lead actor died young and mysteriously or not - is one shitty fucking movie. His name is William Thatcher (ffs) in the movie, but despite the name this quote redeems him: "How did the nobles become noble in the first place? They took it at the tip of a sword. I'll do it with a lance."
I (Marita) have to add that the Knights Tale in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales reminds me of a general theme here - as how he is portrayed in Chaucer's tale as how he sees himself (once again the mirror comes to mind) and the world as well as how he perceives the world sees him. "Finally, death is the end of every worldly sore."
Just talked about Mask and masquerades in the previous Cold Case post (hint to Eyes wide shut & the Ninth Gate again). Here are pics of Heath in other movies and a The Crow Still.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Casanova.
Casanova and the Crow
The very interesting occultist Alan Moore (This blog has a label! :p), who wrote the Joker-centered Batman: The Killing Joke (same name as the earlier band of Paul Raven), also wrote V for Vendetta.
Check out the major minD Control themes here, mirror, butterfly-like crow, mask, spiral staircase, wig...
Sin-Eater aka The Order
It also features the same theme as the crow:
"People once believed that when someone dies a crow carries that soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes something so bad happens that terrible sadness is carried with it. And the soul can't rest. And sometimes the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right." opening narration of The Crow
The Sin Eater/The order:The title refers to an ancient order of rogue priests who ate food off corpses, believing that they were taking unforgiven sins upon themselves and absolving the dead. In the film, a sin eater resurfaces in modern-day Rome, and allows great evil to go unpunished. The effects in question involved various sins "flying out" of bodies.
See the birdies in the Sin Eater movie poster above? Here's the Crow on a cross at the left.
An earlier character named Sin-Eater first appeared in Ghost Rider #80. Ethan Domblue was a pastor obsessed with having a sinless congregation. Ghost Rider foe Centurious gave Ethan the power to "eat" his congregation's sins, leaving them in a passive, "sinless" state. He did not realize that by placing his parishioner's souls in the Crystal of Souls, he was creating an army of zombie-like slaves loyal to Centurious.
This is a chilling confirmation of what I goro (from Etemenanki) had suspected for the 'Demon Days' window of January 20-24 - a 'phoenix death' ('chaos') event. As I wrote in 'Orange Gate 2008: The Phoenix Ignition' ( posted Jan. 13). Still, the rise of the Phoenix/Atlantis [ed. referring to space shuttle Atlantis's Feb. 7 launch] is 'order out of chaos', hence any rising 'ritual' may still require some form of 'chaos' to accompany/precede it. Perhaps that's where the 'Demon Days' of January will come in... We'll just have to see. Heath Ledger died on January 22nd.
Now, as noted before, January 22nd was precisely when Comet Holmes passed right in front of the 'Demon Star' Algol reflected by Ledger's demonic 'Joker' character in 'The Dark Knight' to be released this summer... which is another 'knight' movie. Even more compelling, I was informed by a reader more familiar with the Batman series that one of the supervillains Batman regularly fights is named 'Ra's al Ghul' which is the original form of the name 'Algol'! Like Ledger, he's comparable to the phoenix:
Ra's al Ghul... is a DC Comics supervillain and an enemy of Batman. His name is Arabic for "the ghoul's head" (the Demon's Head, see Algol). [...] Ra's al Ghul has lived for several centuries thanks to his use of Lazarus Pits which he has used countless times replenishing his aged, injured, or even dead body. [...]
Remember, we're not noticing patterns lazily in hindsight here. There is a considerable amount of foresight involved in all this (projections => confirmations) which serves to greatly help prove the validity of the patterns being discussed. You see it done on Etemenanki regularly even though it should normally be 'impossible', which should tell you something about the nature of 'reality'... that there is 'Enki' whispering on the other side of the wall.
Dark Knight Promo stuff that's synchly interesting, just click the pics ;p
One. Two. Three. Four. Five.
“When the human race wears a sorry face. When the bomb hangs overhead.
When your kid turns blue it won’t worry you. You can smile and nod instead.”
Ledger died in Manhattan, thus in Gotham City, which is a nickname for New York.
From the Fool to the Hanged Man
Check out the left picture (from Imaginarium of...), that's a third eye triangle on his forehead in the middle.
Remember how the WTC Spider-man helicopter scene was cut from the first movie (it was even a teaser, check out Jake Kotze's synchs for more on this) because of the WTC disaster. There might be a scene cut from Dark Knight involving the Joker playing dead in a body bag.
Captain Obvious would like to point out that a hanging Bat resonates the Hanged man rather loudly :p.
Also see Atlantean Times for more Hanged Man synchs through Saunière and the Davinci Code.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is an upcoming American fantasy-adventure film directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Gilliam and screenwriter Charles McKeown. In the film, the leader of a traveling theater troupe who, through a deal with the Devil, takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations. Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits, and Heath Ledger star in the film, though the death of Ledger midway through filming caused production to be temporarily suspended. Ledger's role was recast with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell portraying physically changed transformations of Ledger's character as he travels through dimensions. The projected release date for this film is 2009.
In the present day, immortal 1,000-year-old Doctor Parnassus (Plummer) leads a traveling theater troupe that offers audience members a chance to go beyond reality through a magical mirror in his possession. Parnassus had been able to guide the imagination of others through a deal with the Devil (Waits - who is a singer and wrote the lyrics: "Don't you know there ain't no devil, there's only god when he's drunk."), who now comes to collect on the arrangement, targeting the doctor's daughter (Lily Cole). The troupe, who is joined by a mysterious outsider named Tony (Ledger), embark through parallel worlds to rescue the girl. Ledger's role was recast to have new actors portray his "physically transformed versions" in the realm. Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell portray magical transformations of Tony.
Maybe the symbols are related to this: the Pi Kappa Phi or this or this fraternity? (Not my source, and this post is too exhausting to type to dig even deeper :p)
More occult symbolism in 'Imaginarium of...'
That's all folks, holy crap, I'm exhausted, and I didn't even have to do much synch searching for this post. Gotta love the Mystery though! What have I learned, to be mindful about the archetypal forces I engage! I will NOT be digging any deeper into all of this ;p
