With the publication of Cinema Symbolism 3 (eBook due out late May/early June), I will be returning to radio, appearing on shows about twice a month.

I am also making final edits/additions/revisions to my prior books (both print and eBook), which is a long time in coming. These will not be new editions but will replace the ones currently on the market. In sum, these will be revised, re-edited, and expanded versions. These will be released 2022-205. Stay tuned…..

Mercurius, however, had several things in common with the Devil…It is of the essence of the transforming substance to be on the one hand extremely common, even contemptible (this is expressed in the series of attributes it shares with the Devil, such as serpent, dragon, raven, lion, basilisk, and eagle), but on the other hand to mean something of great value, not to say divine. – The Portable Jung, ed. Joseph Campbell

I’ll have to put this in Cinema Symbolism 4. Regan MacNeil’s (Linda Blair, left) paper mache bird sculpture from The Exorcist (1973) turns up in Charlie’s bird drawing (right) in Hereditary (2018). And why not? Both movies are about demonic possession.

Cinema Symbolism 3 teaser….

CS3‘s template looks really good; as such, I am anticipating a March 2021 release. In the meantime, enjoy this teaser….

When form becomes actuality: Gabriel Albinet’s (1865-1930) fascinating poster for Péladan’s third Rose Croix salon (1894) sowed the seeds of one of the greatest hoaxes of the 20th and 21st centuries. It depicts the polymath Leonardo da Vinci (1592-1519) as Joseph of Arimathea, the godfather of the Holy Grail mysteries, and poet Dante Alighieri (ca. 1265-1321) as Hugues de Payens (ca. 1070-1136), Grand Master and cofounder of the Knights Templar. An angel descends with the holy chalice, the sacred feminine, passing its secrets to the initiated few. The advertisement triggered Pierre Plantard (1920-2000) and Philippe de Chérisey’s (1923-1985) Priory of Sion ludibrium (obviously!): Jesus Christ’s bloodline, symbolized by the Grail, was still extant, covertly documented by a Masonic-Rosicrucian secret society, corroborated by the Dossiers Secrets d’Henri Lobineau. The Priory claims, among others, da Vinci, mathematician and physicist Isaac Newton (1642-1727), astrologer and occultist Robert Fludd (1574-1637), and composer Claude Debussy (1862-1918) as Grand Masters; the latter having transformed music through Hermetic initiation: the immersion in divine intellect (nous) invisible to the world and the worldly. The poster produced the germ that became the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail (1982), begetting Dan Brown’s puerile The Da Vinci Code novel (2003) and movie (2006).

Cinema Symbolism 3 update….

Cinema Symbolism 3 is finished, and I am reviewing the final proof. Expected release date is March 2021. Stay tuned… Enjoy this teaser…

Harvey Dent is the arch-criminal Two-Face. No longer the white knight balanced out by the Dark Knight, Two-Face embodies dualism: good and evil, Fraggles and Doozers, order and chaos, personifying the double-headed god Janus. A flip of Two-Face’s coin determines whether his victim lives or dies. The address he holds the Gordon family hostage at the end, where Batman and Commissioner Gordon confront him, is 250 52nd Street, where Rachel died. Nota bene: 250 52, or 25052, is a palindrome characterizing extremities: love and hate, peace and war, life and death.

Detention – great film, wish I had seen it earlier…..

Detention (2012) – great movie, wish I had seen before CS3‘s release. Lots of Donnie Darko (2001) references and other occult goodies…..
