The Arrival of Empress Zöe

Burning Man didn’t always have themes. For the first 10 or so Burns, the theme was “Burn The Man”, recreating the Wicker Man effigy burn rituals of the Druids.

These Wicker Man burns had been going on in San Francisco for some time before the first Burning Man on Baker Beach.

The Man looked a little different back in 1986

In 1995 Burning Man dipped a toe in the thematrical waters with “Good And Evil”, then doubled down on the Evil with 1996‘s “Helco: The Inferno”

The 1996 year of Hell was also the year that Burning Man had the first of what would unfortunately be many deaths to come during the annual radical ritual.

One of the big productions that year was a live opera by Argentinian artist Pepe Ozan.

Here’s a version of the above video narrated by Paradox Pollock, a seemingly close associate of deadly occultist Derrick Ion Almena:

It has never been disclosed what happened to the goat, but Paradox Pollack’s description makes it seem like it was quite a hassle for them having to keep it alive until the performance.

Live animal sacrifices at Burning Man are still happening today. In this case I’m not talking about 2017’s terrible burning man tragedy or the crushing by Lucifer, but Google executives decision to fly live lobsters in from Maine to be killed at the Radical Ritual.

Screenshot 2017-09-18 12.57.31Almena got the lawyer of Hell’s Angels and Shrimp Boy (SF head of the Chinese Freemasons), Tony Serra – “the Hippie Atticus Finch”.

Serra, who took a lifelong vow of poverty on an LSD trip, said “he’s been made a scapegoat for persons or entities culpable for this tragedy…our client has been demonized

Demonized like a goat by entities, huh? Perhaps like the Kali Yuga? These people sure have a strange way of speaking and thinking, which happens to be Aleister Crowley’s way too…but I digress.

Paradox has sp(l)iffed up his social media image since pulling down the video with Derrick that can be glimpsed in the skull-infested screenshot above.

Suit or not, he’s still promoting Evil:

He was the Master of Ceremonies and Emissary Coreographer of the 1996 Burning Man occult sub-ritual.

the music, magnificently composed and played by Chris Cunningham, was sung by Lili Oldfield, Pat Bregant, Sean Steward and Todd Nelson. The representation of this legendary true story was incarnated by Emissaries Justin Miller as Empress Zoe and by Steffanos X as the High Priest of Hell. The Devil was enacted by the goat Sussy, and His wife by WarriorGirl. Master of Ceremonies was Emissary Choreographer Paradox Pollack. The Graces of Hell were represented by CC, Shari Greenfield, Martha Thomson and Susanne Couture. Deployment Secret Services were executed by Emissaries Sculptors Morgan Raimond, Al Honig, Denzil Meyers, and Leo Nash. Messenger Coordinator was Julieta Ozan.

Here’s Ozan talking about his operas and how he was using these elaborate rituals to gather a Satanic sub-community of about 250 people out of the broader Burning Man group (1996 population: 8000):

 

This particular opera featured devils, demons and insects chanting the lyrics “devils’ delight, fire tonight” while dancing around a 40-foot towered sculpture with gargoyle heads called the City of Dis, named after one of the levels of hell in Dante’s Inferno. [Source: John Law]

This description of the Arrival of Empress Zöe is in the video itself:

“A tribal opera with a ballet of insects depicting the peculiar saga of a soul’s birth to death.

The hermaphrodite condition of Empress Zoe and her Lascivious Behavior in the Court has been revealed by Cardinal Petrocelli, one of her passive homosexual Lovers. Condemned by the Holy See to be drowned in the Bosphorous, the Empress manages to take to the waters the Light of the Casiksi Diamond which will assure her the favor of the Devils. Steffanos, the High Priest of Hell, is possessed by Desire at the sight of the Empress inciting the Jealousy of the Graces, who assist him in the Infinite Recreation of Fire.

Pretending to help in the production of the Dust of Darkness to spray the Empress out of Existence, the Graces plot the Destruction of their Rival, the Hideous Lil-llik to ascend in the Hierarchy of the Ninth Circle. Satan, embodied by a goat to please his Wife, seems amused by the events that threaten the very Balance of the Universe”

The wording has changed slightly from the original video to the official web site:

It is the year of ll58AD. The structure of power of the Fire Lingam Project has briefly shifted from Babylon to the Byzantine Empire in Constantinople. The hermaphrodite condition of Empress Zoe has been revealed by Cardinal Petroccelly, one of her passive homosexual lovers. Condemned by the Holy See to be drowned in the Bosphorous, the Empress managed to take to the waters the Light of the Casiksi Diamond which assured her the favor of the Demons. Steffanos, the High Priest of Hell, possessed by desire at the site of the Empress, incites the jealousy of the Graces who assist him in the Infinite Recreation of Fire. Pretending to help in the production of the Dust of Darkness to spray the Empress out of existence, the Graces plot the destruction of their rival, the hideous Lil-llik to ascend in the Hierarchy of the Nine Circles. Satan, embodied in a goat to please His wife, is amused by the events that threaten the very Balance of the Universe. As Chaos erupted, the Mantra singing of 50 devotees and 1000 participating audience helped to save the Universe

The seemingly minor changes – Devils to Demons, Ninth Circle to Nine Circles – could be dismissed as irrelevant, if there were no significance to them. If demons are vices, then we all have demons – even atheists. Devils is explicitly Luciferian.

As for the Ninth Circle, this is the name of a Luciferian Pedo Cult linked to Jimmy Saville, the Jesuits, the Vatican, and many world leaders which has been operating for at least 300 years.

Saturnalia was an ancient Roman orgiastic festival that encouraged gift-giving and continual partying. The god Saturn is associated with black rock.

Of course, this is all just a big farce of pan-ic art and coincidences, they’re not crazy for doing it but I’m crazy for pointing any of it out…go about your day.

 

Is This The Real Reason the Live Stream Is Down? [Update: Up and Down]

 

The biggest camp at Burning Man is Camp Envy: those of us who aren’t physically on the Playa, but instead want some sense of participation by watching the live stream from the comfort of our home or office.

The stream was supposed to be live at noon on Sunday; then they kept pushing it back. Check here to see if it’s working

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfVAyiqfH6gUq5FwzfoP2YA/live

As I write this, they’re going to be live “in 57 minutes”. It’s been “coming soon” for days now. [Update: 8/29/17 6:11pm PST they missed the deadline again. Stream still down]

[Update 8/29/17 6:26pm PST it’s up with a 15-minute delay for some reason. Apparently a lot of Internet connectivity problems]

[Update 8/29/17 9:27pm PST it’s been down for a few hours]

[Update 8/29/16 10:19 PST it’s back up again]

Here’s the official story of events:

2017 live stream

Quite vague, really – “a highly unusual set of circumstances”. And made all the more mysterious because this year also BMIR, the live audio stream, was off the air for many weeks due to “administrative issues”.

Motorbike Matt has some technical chops – he’s run space missions for GoPro and JPL. He wanted me to clarify that NASA did not sponsor any of his (or anyone else’s) involvement with the Mars Rover Art Car – it’s a project people do on their time off.

The live video stream is a utility of Black Rock City provided to us by the Burning Man Project out of their $40 million annual ticket haul – something given to us by volunteers and not regulated by the FCC like BMIR is.

Everything seemed to be on track for the video stream to turn on when Burning Man’s gates opened, until on Friday afternoon at 1:11pm, I went live on the YouTube channel Lift The Veil, talking about Burning Man and Radical Ritual.

We were done by about 3pm PST.

At 4:55pm PST someone started a racist 4chan thread Operation Diversify Burning Man

A GoFundMe was started to support diversity at Burning Man by busing in people of color from economically challenged urban areas.

At 7:26pm PST on Friday August 25th, an Anonymous shitposter put this on another 4chan thread:

Straight away, the infamous alt-right army of 4chan’s politically incorrect /pol/ discussion group was into it. The claim that the guy who runs Burning Man said blacks don’t go because it reminds them of slavery is actually true, Larry Harvey really did say that.

larry harvey on slavery

The 2016 Census results (% Virgin: 39.3%) show an ethnic mix of 1.1% black and 4.3% hispanic.

The largest religious group is Catholic, with 7%, followed closely by Jewish 6.4%. 71.5% said “no religion”.

Interestingly, Google – who champion themselves as the voice of diversity, while firing employees with conservative values – have about the same proportion of black and hispanic.

Google’s overall workforce is 56% White, 35% Asian, 4% two or more races, 4% Hispanic or Latinx, 2% Black and less than 1% American Indian or Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. On its report, Google groups the last two categories together under the heading “Other.

Google is 56% white, Burning Man is 80% white. This compares with the overall tech sector which is 7.4% black and 8% Latino. [Source]

Google is 69% male – only 20% of people in technical roles are women, and 25% in leadership roles. Burning Man is 57% male, 41% female – 1.8% are “fluid/both/neither”.

Being 4chan/pol/ , the race card was immediately played:

It took all of about 5 minutes of 4chan discussion before our Shadow History of Burners series was brought up, by a Japanese poster.

And they came back 15 minutes later with more:

and then:

“Super Autist” – high praise indeed in this group (it is true, I am an IRL shitposter – like Taylor Swift?)

Little did they realize that I would be finishing the story up with part 7 the very next day:

…where the Autist Army of Kek and Pepe even gets a mention.

Screenshot 2017-08-30 12.26.53

Meanwhile, Anon shitposters were suggesting someone let AntiFa know that all the black people at Burning Man were alt-right sympathizers.

And then, at 20:15 – still less than an hour from the original post, they bring up the live stream, and suggest using it to stage “happenings”:

This is coming fresh on the heels of the “March on Google” being postponed due to “credible alt-left terrorist threats”, over a weekend in the Bay Area that saw masked AntiFa thugs beating people with sticks in the name of stopping hate and stealing a journalists phone because he wore a blue shirt.

Insane Cultural Marxists are in an absolute frenzy of fear, paranoia, rage and idiocy right now. Freedom of Speech is their number one enemy.

Likewise, although BMorg like to call themselves “unlikely leader in transparency”, they are in fact renonwed for propaganda, rhetoric and obfuscation. The Hero’s Journey only works if you are the one telling the story.

I could imagine the many employees of the BMorg PR team, experts in spinning the narrative in directions of their own control, watching in horror as the same kind of 4-chan fueled alt-right meme attacks that took down their beloved Satanic Witch Hillary and continue to decimate the Social Justice Warrior Progressive movement by exposing them for the hypocrites they are were shifted to a new target: Burning Man, with the live stream as their rallying cry. A live stream showing very few black people, which also has comments disabled…if this culture is so good for the world, what is so scary about the world seeing it and talking about it?

Hey, perhaps there’s another perfectly good explanation for why the feed is down. One they just don’t want to give us.

pol nothing beyond our reach

Burners.Me Radio On The Air

musical truth

Well, here’s something to listen to anyway. Probably doesn’t “rhyme with Burning Man” in quite the same way as the (now silent) official Burning Man radio station BMIR, but perhaps you could say it “rhymes about Burning Man”.

Jan Irvin and I just did a “50 Years of Flower Power” interview with UK-based DJ Mark Devlin, who has been exposing the darker side of the music industry.

Slick editing Mark, thanks for the opportunity. Love your work!


From Gnostic Media:

 

GVP #111 – Jan Irvin & Steve Outtrim – MK-Ultra & The Counter-Culture – interview by Mark Devlin

Returning guest Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media is joined by New Zealand IT specialist-turned independent researcher Steve Outtrim, as we reflect on the legacy of 1967’s ‘Summer of Love’ – in many ways the zenith of the 1960s counter-culture scene.

As Jan and Steve’s work has shown, the entire movement appears to have been the creation of the intelligence community, specifically the CIA working under the direction of Britain’s MI6, and it stands as a 101 masterclass in how culture-changing social-engineering gets done.

We retrace many of the events and personnel that played a key role in the culture shift, including the Macy Conferences, cybernetics, Aldous Huxley, Gordon Wasson, The Esalen Institute, SRI, Berkeley, Owlsley Stanley, Stewart Brand, Ken Kesey, Allen Ginsberg, San Francisco’s Human Be-In and the Monterey Pop Festival. The influential roles of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones are discussed, along with that of the ‘acid guru’ Dr. Timothy Leary, who later confessed to having been an asset of the CIA.

We consider the templates that are so often employed by the social-engineers, including the Hegelian Dialectic and the creation of false heroes and role models, in the hope that the public can fully understand the ways in which we’re continually being played, as the first step towards not getting fooled again.

The interview is interspersed with original music and speech audio to help bring the story alive.
