TRICKED BY THE LIGHT: LANGUAGE

I just found an excellent website, which tells everything about this “Matrix” we are living and one fascinating thing is, that our alphabet and  language are “spells” which we are casting:

SPELLING: WE SPELL WORDS TO PRONOUNCE A (PRISON) SENTENCE OR TERM

Wyrd sistersWyrd Sisters movie

The first thing you learn when you go to school is how to spell. Words are spelled to create a sentence of terms. Think of a jail sentence or a prison term. The Wyrd sisters in Greek mythology were Fates or witches who controlled the fates of man. In our language we use curse words and cursive writing. We cuss and dis-cuss. Words have meaning and (are) mean things especially cross words. They can be used to make a point. We use a “con” verse to converse in order to keep us off course in our dis-course as a phrase frays. We use catch words. A story is a spiel or a spell. It is all part of the gospel of the Godspell or God’s spell.

CURSIVE (W) RITING

spell book grimoire witches wizardry

Books contain chapters. What is a chapter? A chapter is a secret society or religious order, like the Knights Templar. A chapter contains many pages. What is a page? A page is an understudy and in service to the queen and king, as in pages and squires, a knight who is well versed in magic and is more or less a soldier or trained assassin. To page someone is to summons them. Pages summon demons to enslave or imprison our souls. After all, a page does contain many sentences. A jail sentence is served in a prison ward. And indeed a sentence is created by words that are spelled out by using letters. A letter is someone who allows something to happen or someone who does something for some one else, like a bloodletter.

LANGUID LANGUAGE

We languish in our languid language. Languid means “weak and lacking spirit or void of animation, lifeless” and languish which means “to lose strength or animation; be or become dull, feeble or spiritless; lackadaisical, listless”. . How are we imprisoned by our language? Think about a book. The word book as a verb means to arrest or detain — “book ’em, Danno”. In fact, the Latin word for book is “liber”, which is where we get our word “library” and also the word “liberty”. You can book a reservation which means you’re paying for the ownership of something in advance. You can book or place a bet on a game or race with your bookie. Yes, there is a bet being placed on a race — and it is the human race and the game is the game of life. It is the main bet or the alpha bet. In a group of monkeys, the alpha monkey is the primary monkey or the one in control.

There’s a song called Spirits in the Material World from an album named Ghost in the Machine. The lyrics proclaim, “Our so-called leaders speak.  With words they try to jail ya.
They subjugate the meek.  Where do the answers lie when we live from day to day?  We are spirits in a material world.” The song was performed by a group appropriately named, The Police. The song — and an entire album by Sting, the lead singer, entitled The Soul Cages — refers to how we are spirits imprisoned in an earthly body.

WORDS MEAN THINGS

Most words have multiple meanings and synonyms not to mention many anagrams which the subconscious mind can recognize. Factor in its homophones such as “there”, “they’re”, and “their” and it can get quite confusing to keep track. What effect does that have when words with almost opposite meanings are homophones. Think about “know” and “no”. Knowledge is considered a very positive word yet it is linked phonetically with the most negative word in our language. So when you say “I know this to be true” are you partiallly negating its reality? Consider the above statement in which the letters of the words have been rearranged, yet you still should be able to read it without problem. This means your subconscious mind should also relate multiple meanings to words have many anagrams. So it shouldn’t be any problem to associate God as good, the devil as evil. Now consider the following word relationships: live, evil; god, dog; love, evol.

Pronouncing the words has a pronounced effect. The science of cymatics shows how all spoken sounds take on a vibratory geometry or shape like how you can blow smoke rings by forming your mouth into the shape of the ‘O’. The tibetan monks show how sound can be used to form geometric patterns in a plate of sand particles. So the spoken word can indeed create reality.

Also consider the mind’s ability to combine words and sounds. When someone sneezes you feel customarily obligated to say “Bless you”. But if you sound out the syllables does your subconscious mind also make the connection to the phrase “Be less, you”. So the very act of blessing someone can also be subconsciously telling them to be less. This is spell casting.

How are we being programmed through our language to go to the sun or hell? Hello?!!!! Helios was the Greek name for the sun. The sun in English as well as other languages such as Latin, is called Sol. We are all said to be souls or to have a soul (Sol). We have a solar plexus and our feet have soles. Sole is sun in Italian. You are called a person (pertaining to the sun). When a male child is born, he is called a son (sun). The word for sun is sonne in German. Hu was one of the twelve gods in the Egyptian stellar cult which could explain why we are human. Colors and hues originate from the light of the sun. Politicians encourage soldiers or sol diers to go to war for God and country. Of course, when they die they will go to another dimension (die men sun).

Have you ever wondered why we use the word hello to greet each other? After all, the word can be reduced to hell, the fiery place of eternal punishment and the suffix -o which means “associated with”. In Greek mythology, Helios, which means “sun”, was the God of the Sun. Is it just a coincidence that you have a soul and that our sun is called Sol? If so, why do we call those who die in battle soldiers or sol diers? Is that why we say “good morning” when the sun rises — because it is good to see the sun because it gives us life, but we are mourning those who sacrificed their souls to make it possible. Why do we call our male offspring sons? You are called a person. Is it because you pertain to the sun?

Words are defined in a dictionary — dick-shun-nary. Two of the three syllables are negative sounds and theother is a derogative slang term. Synonyms and antonyms are listed in a thesaurus. ‘The’, from the greek ‘theos’, is the root of the-ology, the study of ‘god’ and ‘saurus’ means ‘lizard’. A thesaurus literally means ‘lizard god’. How many names for government entities start with a negative prefix. The word nation is nay-shun. The UN, Un-ited nations, NATO, NASI party, NASA, Norad, Unesco, NASCAR, NATAS, and I’m sure you can come up with others.

HOW TO RUIN A LANGUAGE WITH RUNE MAGIC

Elder Futhark Rune alphabetDalecarlian runesElder Futhark rune magic

Do some of the letters or building blocks of our language contain within them a blueprint for the control and possession of our spirits? English has Germanic origins and it is likely that the english letters have their roots in the Germanic runes which were used for magic and casting spells. From Wikipedia on rune magic: “In 1990, Stephan Grundy, a.k.a. Kveldulf Gundarsson, described runic magic as the active principle as opposed to passive interpretations based on runic divination. He held that runic magic is more active than the allegedly shamanic practice of seid practiced by the Seiðkona. Runic magic, he states, uses the runes to affect the world outside based on the archetypes they represent.[15]

Most of Gundarsson’s runic magic entails being in possession of a physical entity that is engraved with any or all of the individual runes or “staves”, so as to practically work with their energies. The individual runes are reddened with either blood, dyes, or paints. The act of possessing the stave in its final form serves the purpose of affecting the world of form with “the rune might” of that particular stave. After use, the staves are discarded or destroyed.[16]

Gundarsson holds that each rune has a certain sound to it, to be chanted or sung; the sound has in common the phonetic value by which it is represented.[17] This act of singing or chanting is supposed to have more or less the same effect of using the staves in their physical form.”

Many of the letters of the English alphabet come directly from the Germanic Runes which were used for magic and spell casting and for causing ‘ruin’. Look at how many English letters you can identify from the Elder Futhark rune set.

GRAMMAR OR GRIMOIRE? GOETIA & CYMATICS

Grimoire For the Green Witch

The word “grammar” comes from grammars which were old Latin books on syntax and diction. The ancient magic books of Europe which contained instructions to summon demons were known as the Grimoires, French word for “grammar”. A “grimoire” or spellbook is a derivative of the french word “grammaire”.

 

CymaticsCymatics visibleGoetiaMagic Sigils

 

The pronunciation and sound of words affects the matter around us. The science of cymatics is the study of sound vibration on matter and it has been demonstrated with sand on plates that vibration caan cause geometric patterns. The ancient Goetia spellbooks were used for conjuring up demons and each demon had its own sigil and name.

“IT” & The Creature from the Subconscious “ID”

Stephen King's "IT" the creature of the subconscious IDStephen King "IT" creature fron the subconscious IDCreatures of the Id

Stephen King captured the hearts of America with the release of his blockbuster smash hit book, “It”. The video features the menacing face of a clown while the book reveals the clown’s head as a skull with stars in the eye sockets. The video jacket reads: “Your every fear – all in the deadly enemy. It can be anything, a fanged monster that won’t stay on the movie screen, something ominous lurking in the basement or around the next corner. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows IT better than Stephen King… The force takes the shape of a clown, but it isn’t clowning around. Instead, it terrorizes youngsters with their innermost fears, bringing them to untimely doom – until a group of wily neighborhood kids fight back. Thirty years later it resurfaces: meaner, angrier. And the friends who vividly remember the terrors of their youth reunite to make a desperate final stand against it.” In an interview, King admits he was possessed during the writing of the book.

LET “IT” BE & MAKE “IT” SO

Sigmund Freud, the father of psychology, invented a model of the psyche which contained three parts to the self: the ego (conscious mind), the superego (superconscious mind) and what he termed the “id” or the subconscious mind. This was the realm of our fears: scary monsters and demons. This id was considered a sort of third person subsistent to the conscious and superconscious mind. Of course, we use the word “it” as a sort of third “person” as well in our use of speech. And, of course, subconsciously we have been programmed to accept the abbreviated “ID” as our identity. We unknowingly give power to this creature and help create “it” every day with our thought and speech. We watch the horor movie “It” by Stephen King and associate all our deep dark subconscious fears with “IT”. Likewise with the word “thing” (‘everything’. ‘anything’, and ‘nothing’ or no thing) and the use of ambiguous words such as ‘they’ (THEY live), ‘them’ (“If you can’t beat ’em join them”). We chant the chorus to the song Let It Be over and over again. And it’s no coincidence that IT is the acronym that has been curently assigned to the Information Technology field, or computers, for IT very well may be an artificial intelligence or computer. For a detailed analysis and many more examples of “IT” please reference my page on this phenomenon. Extra! Extra! Click here to “read all about IT“.

We really need to learn to speak with a more conscious language in mind, ever aware of how we think our thoughts in our minds and how we word our sentences!!

“S”-LANG

alphabet letter s snake serpent

Consider the English letter ‘S‘. First of all, it looks like a snake or serpent — one that has risen up and is ready to strike or if viewed from overhead it looks like one that is perhaps crawling along. In two-dimensional space, it looks like a sideways wave and in 3-D space it looks like a spiral, both paths that energy follows. The letter ‘s’ is used in English to denote “possession”, which is Satan’s specialty, by placing it at the end of a word with an apostrophe. Plurality or the concept of multiplication or creation, is achieved by appending an ‘s’ or ‘es’ to a word. These two facts, coupled with the sheer number of words in our language means the ‘S’ sound is one of the most, if not single most, frequently uttered sounds in our speech. Although the vowels are used frequently, they have more than one sound associated with them, a long and short sound. There are probably more esses used in our speech than any other sound. Virtually every sentence we speak contains one or more of these hissing sounds. It would not be accurate to say we sound like hissing snakes when we speak, but our incessant hissing probably reminds us of it at some level subconsciously.

Not only does the letter ‘S’ physically represent the snake or serpent, phonetically it even sounds like a snake!! It sounds exactly like the hissing sound a snake makes – sssssssss – when it “shakes” its tail. The word hiss even ends in a double-s. And, of course, the words snake and serpent are both s-words as well as Satan, who the Bible says took the form of a snake. He was said to have told mankind a secret — that man would not die if he ate of the fruit. Of course, when you want to tell someone a secret you say, “pssssssst, come here…” or if you want to keep a secret you say “Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!!“. The dollar sign, $, is the standard symbol for English currency. Money is said to be the root of all evil. Not only does the ‘S’ look like a snake (Satan), and sound like a snake, which is known for shedding its skin, but nearly all words that begin with the letter ‘s’ have a negative connotation associated with them. That is why they can be considered s-words, or swords, because they can kill and injure like a sword. These s-words are a seal or stamp associated with Satan, Satan’s Slang or s-lang. The word lang is defined in the dictionary as an abbreviation for the word “language”.

Satan, the snake or serpent also known as Set, slithers about striving to snatch, steal, or strip us of our souls or spirits and is obsessed with possessing or seizing them. He, or she, is subtle, sly, sneaky, slick, slippery, scaly, secretive, scary, spins, spirals or screws into your soul and possesses you and seizes your spirit. Speech is his peach and when we speak, Satan is at his peak as far as deception is concerned. The words “possesses”, “obsesses”, “seizes” contain a multiple s-sound and are words pertaining to control.

The word ess, which is defined as the pronunciation for the letter ‘s’, becomes the word esse when a silent ‘e’ is added. The word esse means “to be” which is where we get the word essence and the word essay which is sort of a written speech and comes from the Old French esai which means “to put to a test” which is what Satan did to Jesus in the wilder-ness. The suffix “-ness” also means a state of being, like loneliness or business. It’s interesting that the Loch Ness in Scotland is said to contain a serpent creature named “Nessie” which nests there. Yes, Satan certainly is a “Busy Ness” when it comes to the business world and show business. And he specializes in monkey business. One should keep this in mind before wishing for good-ness.

A partial list of s-words: sun, shine, soul, spirit, Satan, Samael, Set, sin, serpent, snake, salamander, hisses, siren, spell, steal, scales, shed, skin, slither, slimy, slip, slide, shake, strike, scare, sly, sneak, stealth, secret, subtle, slash, slice, slay, slit, shoot, strip, smack, smite, sword, spook, possesses, obsesses, spin, screw, smell, say, speak, salacious, spiral, pssssssst, sssssssshhhh

Shit! I, mean, Sheesh! It is not easy to think of positive s-words and double “ss” words are even worse. The swastika resembles two esses and the word ‘swastika’ has two of them in number. The Nazis had the “SS” and the ‘ss’ logo which looked like lightening bolts.

The far reaching extent in which the spell our language has cast on us can be seen in the every day usage of cliche. Our languages are saturated with what we like to call killer words and phrases because that’s what they do. Englishmen use the word bloody all the time… bloody well right, they do!!! Some women are considered drop dead gorgeous… and when they are dressed to kill, they are to die for. She was a dead ringer for Marilyn Monroe. If looks could kill they would because she will take your breath away. Wouldn’t you just kill for a date with her? Sometimes she really gets under my skin and burns me up, but if anyone tries to hurt her, they would have to go“over my dead body because I will punch their lights out if they get near her. I’m serious as a heart attack. I’m dead serious. She can be as mean as a snake at times, but she really knew how to kill ‘em with kindness. I was dead set for her. I could have just died right there. I mean, I felt like I had just died and gone to heavenEat your heart out. She was a live wire, but at least I would go out in a blaze of glory. I don’t want to beat a dead horse, but she really took me for a ride. Of course, I wore my heart on my sleeve the whole time, but I was scared to death I might lose her because you really have to keep your eyes peeled to find a good one. Not to be a killjoy, but I’m dead to the world around most women, dead as a doorknob.

Ok, that was overkill and painful to read, but it did make a point. Think about the terms we use when we wish good luck to others. “Break a leg, kid” or “Knock ‘em dead!” Or if someone borrows something from us we say, “Go ahead, knock yourself out.” Even time is not immune to our sadistic ways…”time to kill”, “just killing time”.

Why do Christians conclude their prayers by invoking the name of an Egyptian deity, Amen, who had the body of a man and a ram’s head when Satan is depicted as a horned god having a goat’s head? Why does the American dollar bill (known as a buck) have an Egyptian pyramid on its reverse side accompanied by the Latin phrase “Anuuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum” which can be translated “Announcing the Birth of a New World Order”? Why does the American military wear a chevron as an insignia patch when the word derives from the French word chevre, which means “goat”, and On, the Egyptian City of the Sun? If the word God traces back to the Indo-European root “ghut-” or the German “gott”, why does the changing of the vowel from a short sound to a long sound render the word “goat”?

Why does Christmas, the birthday of the Son of God, coincide with the birthday of the Sun of God at the winter solstice, the three days when the sun is at its lowest point on the Southern Cross, appears to stand still for three days, and then rises or is born again? Is this why Easter is celebrated during the Spring Equinox when the East Star, the Sun, has risen? Why is Santa an anagram for Satan? What exactly does Old Nick really mean? And what is a jingle bell?

Why do we have company and product names like Chevron, Capri Sun, Shiner Bock, Star Bucks, and Sears and Roebuck? What is a Sun Kist or a Star Kist? Why are sports contests called ball games and why do we idolize rock stars such as Kid Rock?

The genre of Horror films possesses other “creature features” with “It” in the title. There was “It Lives!”, “It Lives Again”, “It Came From the Sea”, “It Came From Outer Space”, and “It’s Alive!” which is the expression Doctor Frankenstein made famous when he brought his monster to life. From the time we were young, we have been told over and over again that IT is a scary creature that this association has become deeply embedded within the recesses of our mind.

On the Adamms Family, Cousin Itt was a monster. Itt communicated via a high speed gibberish that only members of the Addams family seemed to understand. Cousin Itt’s voice was provided by sound-effects engineer Tony Magro, who created Itt’s garbled responses by mouthing gibberish into a tape recorder, with a “ppffft and a thhhhhttt” added for good measure, and then accelerating the tape’s recording speed.

The eyes have it. What do the eyes have? What or who is it? The eyes are the windows to the soul. In Saturday Night Live, Dana Carvey played the Church Lady who asked, “Could IT be… Satan?”

That IT refers to Satan can seen in the phrase “when It rains, It pours.” Satan, the goat God, is also known as Pan, the Piper. The word gote, a variant spelling of goat, means a channel or pipe for water and comes from the Old English word geotan which means “to pour”! So when It reigns, It pours.

When children play hide and seek, someone always has to be “it”. All the other children run and hide from whoever’s “it”. “It” then goes roaming around trying to find and capture whoever’s not “it”. When someone is found they are tagged as the new “it” — “Tag, you’re it!!”

The Beatles’ Paul McCartney said the idea for the song “Let it Be” came to him in a dream. He chants the line over and over and we all sing along almost willing it into existence. Every time the song is played on the radio, thousands and thousands are sending forth thought and sound vibrations into the air. We use the word “it” in our language over and over all the time. Could it be possible to manifest a creature from the id, or from the subconscious? Think of these songs: Bread’s “Make it with you”,

The Scorpions “Make it Real”,

“…Make it real, not fantasy
Did you ever have a secret yearning?
Don’t you know it could come true?
Now’s the time to set wheels turning
To open up your life for you
As you know there’s always good and evil
Make your choice, Don’t be blind
Open up your mind and don’t be trivial
There’s a whole new world to find
Make it real, not fantasy…”

The Michael Jackson song “Who is it?”

“…(Who is it?)
It is a friend of mine
(Who is it?)
Is it my brother?
(Who is it?)
Somebody hurt my soul
(Who is it?)
I can’t take this stuff no more…”

In this song, Michael explains who IT is:

“Can you feel it in the air
Ghosts be hiding everywhere

I’m gonna be
Exactly what you wanna see
It’s you who’s haunting me
You’re warning me
To be the stranger
In your life

Am I amusing you
Or just confusing you?
Am I the beast
You visualized?
And if you wanna to see
Eccentricities
I’ll be grotesque
Before your eyes

Let them all materialize

Is that scary for you, baby
Am I scary for you, oh
Is it scary for you, baby
Is it scary for you?”

How about songs like Mariah Carey’s Make It Happen or Bread’s Make It with You? Star Trek’s Captain Picard says “Make it so.” Nike inundates us with the “Just Do It” slogan and the swoosh logo.

People do things “just for the hell of it”. Believe it. Keep it real. To hell with it!!! Keep it up. Let it ride. Pass it on. Get with it.
Are you with it? Go for it. Hop to it. Bring it on. Get it together. Play it again, Sam. There’s something to it. Check it out. Figure it out. I love it!! When someone dies, “I guess that was it”. Live it up. Let it go. Do you get it? i get it! How’s it going? It’s going good! How’s it hanging? Don’t let it end. Who can it be now? It’s a wonderful life (the ‘i deal’ life). Let’s make it last. You’ve got it made. Give it a try. Grin and bear it. It just so happens. Leave it alone. Give it a rest. How sweet it is. It’s what you make it. I can see it in your eyes. Get it together. What is it? Get over it. The devil made me do it. Whatever it takes. Now you see it, now you don’t. Cut it out. Whoomp, there it is.
I’m not going to stand for it. Take it away boys. It looks so real. Say it ain’t so. Give it up. It could happen to you. It can’t be true (it always lies). I can feel it in my bones. It’s a mystery. Give it everything you’ve got. It’s all in your head. I can’t get it out of my head. It’s in the way that you use it. Get it, got it? Good. Could it be? Don’t even try it.
Sit on it.

The Energizer bunny took the world by storm in one of the best advertising campaigns in history. The slogan which was for batteries that create energy was “It keeps going and going…” and became a household phrase for many years. Alka Seltzer encourages us to “Try it, you’ll like it!” Compaq asks the question, “Has it changed your life yet?” And American Express admonishes us to “Don’t Leave Home without It.”

The company Sobe had this ad on their web site encouraging us to “get it up” and to “keep it up”.

Skull fashion – a spiritual perspective

Something to think about:

1 Introduction to skulls as a fashion trend

In recent years, apparel with skulls on it has grown in popularity. Once seen as a sinister symbol of a counter-culture, skulls prints have become a mainstream fashion trend and are used on everything from children’s clothes to underwear. People choose to wear skull outfits in various ways from a totally Gothic look to adding a bit of spice to a classic outfit. Famous fashion designers too have incorporated the skull motif on their clothes and accessories. Celebrities who are generally considered trend setters have endorsed this sinister fashion by wearing clothing such as skull scarves, skull tops and skull skirts. When celebrities endorse a fashion trend, society generally flocks to embrace it. It has often been observed that clothing with skull prints get sold out faster than other fashion apparel. In the pictures below we have shared some ways people have incorporated skull designs into their wardrobe including their children’s clothing and baby’s cot.

2 Skull fashion from a spiritual perspective

When people embrace a fashion trend they generally do so because everyone else seems to be doing so. They may adopt the trend thinking that the idea of placing skulls on various items used in daily life is ‘cute’, ‘creative’, or ‘inventive’. Yet people give little thought to the spiritual effect of what they wear. However at SSRF through spiritual research it has been observed that what people wear can impact them to a considerable extent.

According to the science of Spirituality, the entire universe is made up of 3 basic subtle components – Sattva, Raja and Tama. Sattva is the component that represents spiritual purity and knowledge; Raja represents action and passion, while Tama represents ignorance and inertia. The subtle vibrations emanating from anything and everything are dependent on the predominant subtle basic component they are comprised of.

SorcerorThe skull is a symbol of death and has high amount of negative or Tama vibrations associated with it. Through spiritual research we have found that the shape of the skull by itself emits negative vibrations and attracts negative energies. According to spiritual science everything that is created has a form, touch, taste, smell, sound and energy associated with it. Very often subtle artists at SSRF through their advanced sixth sense of vision have seen demonic entities wearing skulls (please see adjacent picture). Demonic entities wear skulls because it increases the negative energy in them. When we use items in our daily lives that have skulls on them, we increase the Tama component in us. Consequently the vibrations emanating from us are negative in nature thus attracting demonic entities to us.

The skull fashion trend in society has been started due to negative energies. People who are possessed by demonic entities are more likely to embrace such a fashion. The demonic entity possessing them influences their thinking and increases their liking for such things which emit negative vibrations. When possessed people choose to wear clothes with skulls, they help the demonic entity possessing them, to strengthen their hold over them. Furthermore, such fashion trends increase the overall negative vibrations in society.

Wearing clothes and accessories with skulls or demonic looking figures on them makes any average person spiritually vulnerable. This vulnerability increases an average person’s risk of being affected by negative energies by 70%. For those who are already susceptible to be possessed, such as people who have a liking for non-vegetarian food and alcohol, who are mentally disturbed or suffering from depression; wearing skull designs increases the risk of possession by 30%. These figures are average guides to show the serious negative impact such clothing can cause a person. This percentage can however vary from person to person. Once a person gets possessed, the possessing ghost can control the person not only in this life but in the afterlife and many future lifetimes to come. It is very difficult to rid oneself from the controlling subtle entity.

3 Suggestions to avoid the negative effect of skull fashion

  • If one has clothes and accessories with skulls printed on them, one should discard them.
  • If one is associated with a person who wears such attire, then chanting the Name of God according to the religion of one’s birth will provide one with a Divine protective covering from the negative vibrations emanating from that person.
  • Starting spiritual practice and continuing it on a regular basis gives one the ability to discern what is spiritually negative and positive.
  • Having the subtle ability to discern gives one a whole new dimension to consider when one makes daily decisions such as what to wear. By not considering the spiritual effect of a decision a person can do himself much harm.

I SEE DEAD PEOPLE: WHY THE SKULLS ON EVERYONE’S CLOTHES?

Hogan

2009-01-26 07:15:05

Opinions

This article has been sitting dormant on my hard drive for over a year, mostly because I always think that it’s out of date, no longer relevant. Experience, however, suggests the opposite. I wanted to say something about the frustratingly popular trend of “skull” fashion, and as it turns out, the trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. So here’s the old article (revised, of course), which has apparently stood the test of time; a surprising thing considering the usual turn-over rate of fashion trends.

The walking dead seem to be among us, and in more ways than one.

I can hardly go a day without seeing upwards five skulls on somebody’s shirt, shoes, scarf, purse, hat, pet or baby. Skulls with batwings, a skull with caribou antlers, X-Files-esque alien skulls, a skull with “What!” written above it, rhinestone skulls on baseball caps; skeleton outlined jackets with skulls, rear and side views, on the hood. I’ve even seen – in the most absurd and perplexing case of all – the slogan “Vive le FLQ” written in dripping blood letters above a skull. What the 1960s militant Quebec separation group, “Front de libération du Québec”, has to do with anything, I’m not sure (I suppose the easy answer is, “They killed people.”).

Those are just a few examples. I’ve seen more than I can remember. Anything – and I mean anything – can be combined with a skull and put on a shirt. And any skull-combo you can think of has probably run through the mind of one of the decidedly unoriginal, low-level designers pumping out this trendy garbage. Casual morbidity not only goes with black, it is the new black. It certainly seems to be the “in” thing at the moment. Scratch that: “in” for a good many moments. The trend apparently has staying power. So what’s with all this stylish skullduggery?

Even if you don’t count the skull imagery that’s always gone with biker, punk rock and skateboarder fashion, skull-related symbology is strikingly common. Where did the skulls as fashion trend come from? And why is it so popular now?

I mean, does anybody actually think to themselves why they even buy such clothing in the first place? When you buy that cool shirt, do you think, “Hey, I like skulls. I’ll get this shirt.” Do people ever think to themselves “Skulls are a symbol not only of death but of change, transformation and growth. I think I’ll wear this”?

Or is this all just a recent trend that everybody is conforming to because, consciously or not, we think that, “Well, everybody else is wearing it.”? According to a post by nicole6980 on the fashion website, Gurl.com, “Skulls on clothes rox. They dont really mean anything but they look badass. Me and my friends rock them almost everyday.” I take this to be representative of most people’s thoughts on the subject.

In my other admittedly sparse internet research on the skeletal trend I found FOXNews.com reporting as far back as 2006 that, “Taking their cue from bottles of arsenic, fashion designers around the world are going gaga for Mr. Skull and Crossbones, adorning everything from jeans to jewelry with his bony image.” They credit celebs like Lindsay Lohan for popularizing the trend, which seems to be going nowhere, much to my annoyance. USATODAY.com, also years ago, wrote that, “Being bad to the bone may prove good for the bottom line. Hoping to capitalize on the “skull chic” trend — as well as Friday’s release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest — marketers are plastering skulls, with or without crossbones, on everything from T-shirts and belts to dinner plates and jewelry.”

The USATODAY.com article included a section titled “How marketers are trying to get ahead with skulls” detailing how the skull trend is “exploding” in clothing, accessories and home decor. But they warn it should be meant ironically, lest you come off as some sort of tough guy. The “ironic” part is usually expressed through combining skulls with cutesy things like the Hello Kitty brand, or with little hearts. In Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” video, for instance, the background features huge, brightly coloured, plaid skulls with heart-shaped eye sockets (irony is no stranger to today’s youngest generations, so much so that sarcarm trumps seriousness almost everywhere you go).

For some reason parents are even decorating their kids in these symbols of death. The baby clothing shop near my apartment sells (or did sell) a black baby t-shirt with a baby skull on it. Why you’d want to be reminded of death when you look at your newborn I’m not sure.

Even more strange, perhaps, on Denman street – a high class, area in Vancouver’s famously gay neighbourhood near Davie street – I walked by a doggie fashion store and noticed, you guessed it, a doggie t-shirt with a little doggie skull on it.

You can find skulls on people’s clothing in movies and TV, too. Quentin Tarantino’s gore-fest Deathproof features on its poster a skull on a car, plus in the movie a character or two with skull shirts. On the TV show L.A. Ink, about a tattoo parlour, one of the tattoo artists had a shirt with a skull, and above it the words “Guns and Knives”. And this just scratches the surface of skull-fashion’s TV and film exposure. Again, why this modern, morbid trend?

Could it be that in our age of worldwide violence, war, and famine, we have to somehow sublimate all the nihilistic energy in the air? Is our modern, North American culture so swamped in casual, violent images – provided by a fear-mongering media – that we unconsciouly don the fitting fashion? Perhaps the sheer amount of death and destruction in the world – both real and imagined – reduces the possibility of understanding it in any sensible way, leaving most of us jaded, resigned or indifferent. So the casual, cute, ironic morbidity of the alarmingly common skeletal motif might just be an unconscious expression of our malaise, our powerlessness, our sinking into a bottomless, political, moral abyss, which even (or especially) words cannot get us out of.

The key word there is “unconscious”. My generation, the younger siblings of Generation X (which, fittingly, makes us Generation Why?), harbours a strong distrust of mainstream politics and the words attached to it. But words, as far as I can tell, are one of, if not the only sign of a critical or creative – that is, conscious – mind. Static symbols, like skulls, when lacking an interpretation (i.e.: in words), can only be the passive flashcard of an unconscious mind.

The violent imagery doesn’t stop with skulls, of course. Also popular is the war motif: guns, tanks, bombs, etc. And like the skulls, they are often combined ironically (how hip!) with more light-hearted images. Take, for example, the t-shirt in which bombs being dropped from an airplane morph into butterflies; or the one (by the same company, I assume) that has a man holding a just-fired gun to his head, with the blood splatter morphing into those cute butterflies again. Perhaps a clever comment on how butterflies themselves morph, perhaps not.

In my more theoretical moments I actually do believe that the skulls and other violent imagery are an unconscious expression of, or response to, our age of ultra-violence. But it could merely be, as another modern trend has it (this one linguistic), that it’s all just “random”. Plus, with the George Bush era ostensibly over, perhaps Barack Obama’s Yes-We-Can-style “hope” will finally diffuse the morbid trend.

Clearly skulls have, for a while now, become a dominant, abstract, no-content symbol on almost everybody’s (including their babies’ and dogs’) clothing. But is it so devoid of content? Maybe there’s something behind the seemingly mindless trend. Perhaps it actually represents a state of mind, a politico-cultural opinion, a worldview – albeit an unarticulated one. I mean, do people actually have an opinion on what they wear? Does it represent some statement about the Bush era? Are people using the skulls on their clothes to “express themselves” or “get across some message”?

Here’s a partial answer in anecdotal form:

A while back I visited a fashion store, Riot, which is in my building on Commercial Drive in East Vancouver. I pointed out a hat on the rack that had a skull on it and asked the two girls who were working what they thought about all the trendy skull imagery everywhere. I, being the snobbish, pretentiously intellectual male I am, assumed the girls wouldn’t be interested in my own theory about the modern moral malaise and the inexpressible despair with the state of the world, and so I went with the condescendingly simple Pirates of the Caribbean theory: about how it’s probably just the Disney Company doing sly promotion through its likely vast fashion subsidiaries. The girl behind the counter said, “Yeah, maybe, but I think it has more to do with how there’s so much violence in the media and with the war and stuff like that. You can’t really go around wearing rainbows and happy stuff. It just wouldn’t look right.”

So I was wrong, and very glad about it. Someone besides me had been thinking about all this (she wasn’t actually wearing any skulls, though). And so I come back to my earlier question: do the skulls really represent an unarticulated, geo-political opinion on the state of the world? Well, no. And that’s simply because there’s no such thing as an unarticulated opinion! The most common response I get to my frequent probes into this fashion quirk is a resigned, “It doesn’t mean anything” (nicole6980 would agree).

For what it’s worth, I always have trouble accepting “It doesn’t mean anything” as an answer to any question because I can’t help but interpret it as “I don’t want to think about it.” Perhaps all I’ve done here is confirm the idea that fashion is antithetical to individual thought, because fashion is mostly conformity to an arbitrary trend.

What I’ve concluded, perhaps unfairly, is this: Where words fail, or just simply don’t exist (for lack of effort or smarts) you have a trendy, jaded symbol to do the “talking” for you. And guess what? You’ll have plenty of similarly fashionable people to “agree” with: skulls for everyone, all in on the “in” thing. No need for words, no need for thought. I know I shouldn’t judge people by their covers, but they give me little else – words! – to work with. The walking dead are among us, but as far as I can tell, they are the brain-dead.

Should I continue on my research of Truth or quit?

I have now posted almost 6 moths to my blog and there is no conversation between users. So I have decided to ask if someone is reading these postings. Should I continue or quit? It’s quite lonely to write about these topics if there is no audience. So if you want that I continue searching the Truth please comment below. Tell me if the commenting is too difficult and I will fix it.

Here is a small poll so, that I know what you think about my work. So vote and I will decide based on that what to do. Have a nice day. 8-):

Hello my friends!

Hi! I am Blogman and I welcome you  to my blog. This is my first post… Hmmm what could be the starting point of this journey? Maybe we could start with some introduction of this site. On the left you can find the pages of this site and mainly the static stuff. The right side is for more dynamic content. I try to keep this site simple, but maybe on the long run it will be full of stuff.
