G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra

The Crown Chakra risen Kundalini Cobra Symbol, "but they're the bad guys?" Hey it was the eighties & Hasbro may be 'evil', I mean the good guys are the American army ;p. "He'll fight for freedom wherever there's trouble. A real American HZero. GI Joke's purpose, to fight COBRA, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world." And make the military industrial complex a lot of money hehe. No propaganda machine got me so much cool toys though. I came home one birthday and got this crazy shit:
Still freaking awesome.

Upcoming movie (looking terrible) is called the Rise of Cobra. In the movie Cobra Commander is an arms dealer, kinda harsh isn't it, an elite army unit fights an arms dealer with his own terrorists. While in reality, a crapload of (false flag?) terrorist arms are made in and sold by the US and other western countries. Btw, it's no longer the Real American Hero, cause now the Joes are based in Brussels, what a shithole! (It's our capitol). GI Joe: The Rise of the Kundalini Cobra, behold: Snake Eyes. Played by Ray Park, aka Toad or Darth Maul.
I-Ching hexagram on Snake Eyes' shoulder is 63, or 666. Meaning “after completion” or “already completed”. But that is only the beginning. The rest, even though it's not often translated well, means “at the end, disorder.”

The General Meaning
Kî Žî intimates progress and success in small matters. There will be advantage in being firm and correct. There has been good fortune in the beginning; there may be disorder in the end. The transition from confusion to order is completed, and everything is in its proper place even in particulars. The strong lines are in the strong places, the weak lines in the weak places. This is a very favorable outlook, yet it gives reason for thought. For it is just when perfect equilibrium has been reached that any movement may cause order to revert to disorder.

Explanation of the separate lines
1. The first NINE, undivided, (shows its subject as a driver) who drags back his wheel, (or as a fox) which has wet his tail. There will be no error.
2. The second SIX, divided, (shows its subject as) a wife who has lost her (carriage-)screen. There is no occasion to go in pursuit of it. In seven days she will find it.
3. The third NINE, undivided, (suggests the case of) Kâo Žung, who attacked the Demon region, but was three years in subduing it. Small men should not be employed (in such enterprises).
4. The fourth SIX, divided, shows its subject with rags provided against any leak (in his boat), and on his guard all day long.
5. The fifth NINE, undivided, shows its subject (as) the neighbour in the east who slaughters an ox (for his sacrifice); but this is not equal to the (small) spring sacrifice of the neighbour in the west, whose sincerity receives the blessing.
6. The topmost SIX, divided, shows its subject with (even) his head immersed. The position is perilous. More. Thanks to tommy in comments!
Why are there 3 pics of Snake Eyes and none of Storm Shadow?
Because Storm Shadow needs new pyjamas is why.

Check out Dr. Who AKA Destro in front of a MARS Stargate.
Seriously, all they had to do was put metal on the head. Too much to ask?

Rachel Nichols, the Scarlet(t) Woman.

Sienna Miller, the Baroness, stargate.
(One of the good guys is called 'Duke', tss)

Cobra Commander and the Crown Chakra risen Kundalini
No need to freak out, I'm not linking Cobra Commander to Buddha
and find it kinda unfathomable that the creators of GI Joe managed to.
Though the sync-nificance can be as far as it can be close, no need to link directly.
Cobra Commander
Serpentor, a later introduction to replace Cobra Commander.

Naga, the cobra, is a symbol of kundalini power, cosmic energy coiled and slumbering within man. It inspires seekers to overcome misdeeds and suffering (to become conscious and aware and overcome old programming) by lifting the serpent power up the spine into God Realization. Aum.

Kobra Kommand's logo rotated 90 degrees to either side looks like a big mouth complete with lips and teeth. Did you notice the I-Ching pattern on Snake Eyes' shoulder?

Sorry about el double posto but the I-Ching on Snake Eyes' shoulder is 63, or 666 (Sun). I knew it was going to be that before I even looked it up. :P

I missed out on all of that. I was part of the depressing kung fu grip generation. My brother was so into that stuff he enlisted in the Marines.

Thanks Tommy, I did some googling yesterday and found something about a comic that's about snake eyes origin, the i ching tattoo is mentioned but not which one it was hehe. Excellent, I'll add it to the post.

I always liked GI Joe, I never liked the army, go figure!

"Good evening," said the little prince courteously.

"Good evening," said the snake.

"What planet is this on which I have come down?" asked the little prince.

"This is the Earth; this is Africa," the snake answered.

"Ah! Then there are no people on the Earth?"

"This is the desert. There are no people in the desert. The Earth is large," said the snake.

The little prince sat down on a stone, and raised his eyes toward the sky.

"I wonder," he said, "whether the stars are set alight in heaven so that one day each one of us may find his own again . . . Look at my planet. It is right there above us. But how far away it is!"

"It is beautiful," the snake said. "What has brought you here?"

"I have been having some trouble with a flower," said the little prince.

"Ah!" said the snake.

And they were both silent.

"Where are the men?" the little prince at last took up the conversation again. "It is a little lonely in the desert . . ."

"It is also lonely among men," the snake said.

The little prince gazed at him for a long time.

"You are a funny animal," he said at last. "You are no thicker than a finger . . ."

"But I am more powerful than the finger of a king," said the snake.

The little prince smiled.

"You are not very powerful. You haven't even any feet. You cannot even travel . . ."

"I can carry you farther than any ship could take you," said the snake.

He twined himself around the little prince's ankle, like a golden bracelet.

"Whomever I touch, I send back to the earth from whence he came," the snake spoke again. "But you are innocent and true, and you come from a star . . ."

The little prince made no reply.

"You move me to pity--you are so weak on this Earth made of granite," the snake said. "I can help you, some day, if you grow too homesick for your own planet. I can--"

"Oh! I understand you very well," said the little prince. "But why do you always speak in riddles?"

"I solve them all," said the snake.

And they were both silent.
