The shadow of the Great Beast lives in James Bond villain and SPECTRE chief Ernst Stavro Blofeld. In On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), Blofeld (Telly Savalas, 1922-1994) shares Master Therion’s penchant for legitimizing phony ancestries and coats of arms. In this scene, Blofeld masquerades as Balthazar, Count de Bleuchamp. Blofeld’s deception also conjures Crowley’s belief that he was a magical charlatan.

So are my revised editions, so please stay tuned. Currently, I am on a bit of a summer hiatus, but more podcasts coming in August. In the meantime, here is a little 9/11 teaser from Cinema Symbolism 4.

  • Thunderball (1965). Although too far removed in time, this one is a humdinger nevertheless. At a meeting of the Illuminati-like SPECTRE, its chieftain, Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Anthony Dawson, 1916-1992), aka Number One, requests financial reports from its members. He accuses Numbers Nine and Eleven, who sit next to each other, of being in cahoots, committing malfeasance, and dismayed by their disloyalty. That is, embezzling profits from the sale of Red China narcotics in the United States, presaging America‚Äôs Southern Border and related fentanyl crisis. In the end, Blofeld electrocutes Number Nine, and his chair drops beneath the floor, where his corpse disappears forever.

Happy July 4th!

June 24th is Midsummer, the celebration of the summer solstice (longest day of the year), the Feast Day of St. John the Baptist (Mercury-Hermes, the Lord of Summer), Freemasonry’s Birthday (June 24th, 1717) and currently (2022) a fantastic astronomical alignment in the morning, eastern horizon (visible to the end of the month).

Da Vinci paints St. John the Baptist (ca. 1513) as Hermes or Mercury (qua the Hermetic, Alchemical androgyne), the divine messenger.

It is only apropos that the latest biopic about Elvis Presley (1935-1977), the Apollonian sun god, will be released on June 24th. That is midsummer, the feast day of the Baptizer (aka John the Baptist, the Lord of Summer), three days after the summer solstice, the apex of the sun in the northern hemisphere, and the birthday of modern-day Freemasonry. As above, so below as they say, so inscribed of the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus. Coming soon: Cinema Symbolism 4.
