Back to the Nemesis of Pride

0-Statue

The phrase Novus ordo seclorum Latin for “New order of the ages” is on the back of the US dollar and the back of the Great Seal of the United States.

The term comes from the fourth Eclogue of Virgil,

:Ultima Cumaei venit iam carminis aeta The ultimate in propheces, comes from the Cumaean Sibyl‘s song;
magnus ab integro saeclorum nascitur ordo. The great order of the ages is born anew.
Iam redit et virgo, redeunt Saturnia regna: Now, Virgo (Lady Justice / Astraea) returns, thus returns Saturn’s reign.
iam nova progenies caelo delabitur alto. Now, a new age of man descends from the heavens.

I’m back rewriting the scene containing Nemesis (Lady Justice, Virgo+Libra, Astraea). I can go on and on with names, but this myth dates back to when Inanna stole the rule (the Mes) from Enki. The astrological signs Virgo and Libra factor into this myth. Nemesis, the goddess, is the nemesis of pride (Satan); she brings balance.

The History of Hooters and Beer

Burney Relief -British_Museum_Queen_of_the_Night-horz

The original goddess of Hooters, Inanna, tricked the trickster god, Enki, into getting drunk enough to steal the Mes. The myth gives us our first beer tale. The Sumerian goddess depicted in the British_Museum’s Burney Relief (right image) is generalized as the “Queen of the Night,” but most likely depicts Inanna (also known as Astarte or Ishtar. To picture Inanna, you might imagine the Hooters girl, Casey Luckey, with longer hair thrown in back and spread out like wings. Better yet, let us add Bunny Yeager’s picture of Bettie Page to the imagery. You end up with the Owl and the Pussycat set to new page.

The Casey Luckey image come from a YouTube video put out by Hooters. She is from Lakeland, Florida. Bunny Yeager took the Bettie Page shot at a South Florida tourist attraction.

Get The Gist

02~13

I call Enki, the geyser god, for a reason. When I read the Sumerian myth, something like this popped into my head. I use Christina’ Aguilera’s album cover because of the veils and her link to Disney. The goddess, Inanna (also known as Astarte and Ishtar) danced the dance of the seven veils much earlier than Salome. I write about a fertility cult active in modern-day Florida with ties to these ancient myths. Images like this help simplify mythic symbolism.

I layered an image of Yellowstone’s Beehive Geyser on top of Aguilera’s, Your Body, album cover. The idea popped into my head and was super easy to do. Just a crop and a flip. We don’t have geysers, but we do have springs; they just don’t give good enough gist.

The Sexiest Kicks-Assiest Goddess From Hell

Inanna and the huluppu tree-vert

Inanna was a bad ass. The ancient goddess was the goddess of almost everything. She took a tour of the underworld, did a striptease for the guards and back up top. Inanana got the great god, Enki, drunk and stole away his most valuable possession – the Mes.  She played stripper and barmaid; two reasons why I chose the comic book characters in the bottom pane. Stripperella, of course, is a stripper. Her pal, Persephone, strips in the TV show but the goddess by that name never voluntarily stripped for the underworld guardians. Stripperella is a gadget girl, so she has man tricks up her sleeve like Inanna. The goddess has much more power than Stripperella, so I chose to pair her up with the superhero known as the Celestial Madonna.

Mantis kicks ass and she also served beer. Marvel made her the Celestial Madonna, but she has more in common the other Mary (Magdalene). Mantis loves plants, she even had a baby with one (a tree person from an alien race known as the Cotati; she also has plant over plants, like the had with the tree dude’s root. Sounds as if she has all the prerequisites to act as a fertility goddess. Mantis gave birth to the Celestial Messiah, known as Sequoia.

Comic books often borrow from mythology, I see the former as modern myth and the latter as part comic book. Many literal fiction authors borrow from myth, so do I. Comic books have a simple form, but a complicated universe. Thinking in comic book terms helps simplify the appearance of my writing while complicating my universe. Inanna and the Huluppa Tree was a play originating in Miami. I write about Florida , everything fits.

Woemen

174635-horz

Woemen = the immovable object = one who puts the brakes to Duhman, the supposed unstoppable force. I doubt we have a god in charge; a goddess makes more sense because the world makes no sense. If we had a god, then things would be simple because men are simple. Jean Shinodo Bolen makes things simple when she divides women into types: some who mother and some who prefer the bed of a lover. Don’t be fooled guys, look at the title; you don’t have one goddess in a woman; you have many goddesses in every woman; you are always out numbered. Inanna is a goddess of many things and she is a trickster = she is woman. She is a lioness = the pussy that wants to eat you.

The MeS of Mythology

Ouroboros5

Inanna, the naughty stripper, stole the MeS from Enki and religion has been a mess ever since. I mix Metis and Demeter to make DeMetis, so I can combine concepts. Hindus say Saraswati’s wisdom helped create the universe and Metis is Deep Thought (Vāc is the vacuumous Deep Throat; sorry but I’m writing about a fertility cult which means sex. Graceful Saraswati rides her swan, during the Swan Song of Autumn, to bring wisdom to the awkward stork and the bundle of joy(?); and the songbirds start to sing. Pollinators have their orgy and humans give their thanks to Flora, during the orgy of the Floralia.

Tiamat is a creatix and you can say the Ouroboros represents her. Snakes shed their skin like Inanna sheds clothes; both are born again in new birthday suits. Strippers go skinny dipping at the Floralia and the larks sing.as they look. My more complex diagram is still a bit messy, Inanna probably goes before Flora.

Juno or Hera represents the threat of drought; she is the bad mother. Case in point, what does she do to poor Hephaestus? Hera just plain hates kids; she sends Python after the twins, Artemis and Apollo; she sends more snakes after Heracles. Tiamat = good snake and Python = bad snake. Hera’s peacock shows the beauty that summer can bring and is the Hindu snake killer. Summer can bring the good or the bad.

No, Karma is not a goddess; but Karme is the Cretan demi-goddess of the harvest. Karma is a reap what you sow theology and you reap at harvest time in Autumn. I don’t know if there is a true link between Karme and Karma, but mythology is a mess. Why not try to give a half way clean picture? I’m writing fiction; I just want a clean set of allusions. Funny thing is the MeS are rules of order.

Wiccans, Wobots, and Beer

Ada_lovelace-tile

(The almost true story of a computer god) Like all men, John Atanasoff dreamed of Wobots. He had to give it a brain. A barmaid served him a beer; he saw, 1+1, the ideal pair. A binary max, the first electronic computer bore fruit in his mind. Coors took credit when they gave him an award, but the barmaid played the muse. Phosphorus is the fire of life and it gave fire to Atanasoff; he had to get away from the fire and brimstone. You see, Atanasoff grew up in the Phosphate Capital of the World; he grew up in Mulberry. Not Opie’s home town; closer to brother Clint‘s neck of the woods.
The monument built for Atanasoff stands in Sofia, Bulgaria; his father came from the Yambol province.

The Rosicrucian (top right) vision of Sofia; it bears likeness to the Wicca version of she who is Wisdom incarnate. Ada Lovelace (top left) served wisdom to the computer god, Charles Babbage. Like Inanna to Enki. She, too, served a beer. Hedy Lamarr, the frequency hopper, had a hand in Wi-FI. Did she serve a beer? Of course. What did Inanna serve Enki to steal the Mes? Beer.

Lovelace and Hedy have deep history, here in Florida. But watch out for when Hooters serves Hecate’s beer. Until then, hoist a beer to Enki, the Geyser God, give hail to the Lizard King , and be wary woe-bots — may await to arise.

The Last Veil of Ishtar

ishtar_n_hades From a painting by E. Wallcousins

Down I fell
To blood stained flail
My life gives last tell
For last meal, sushi and kale.
In a house for horned out male
Guys would chase her tail
Her skin, vampire pale
I see Ishtar’s last veil
I found the road to hell.
No need for rail
No need for coffin nail
The ferry waits to set sail.

Apocalypse translates to, “lifting the veil.”
