In the previous post I intro'd part of what Ike's supposed Jewish pedigree is severely lacking so as to make him come across as if he was bonafide Yiddish. In this post I wanna illustrate how I think Ike's free floating anxiety function kicks in when it comes to makin' assumptions based on links he creates due to a word here, a phrase there.
In the world of antiquity, especially when he started dabbling with angels, Babylon and its fabled hanging gardens. Here is how a modern troubador, singer-song writer type, with a message of sorts would deal with his take on an angel.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angelhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNhnThb8gEw
I'm gonna pass on the really maudlin' genre triggered off by Teen Angel.
This is part of that general area Abraham of Ur strolled thru...Ike ignored it so far, how come?http://www.prophecywatch.com/news/assyrian_connection
This is sort of what ike is attempting to do but hasn't managed to pull it off...http://spiritrestoration.org/Church/Res ... _cults.htmhttp://desertpeace.wordpress.com/2009/1 ... to-sanity/http://desertpeace.wordpress.com/2009/1 ... -his-mind/
Now back to spin + things. In many cultures, flower symbols cary a multitude of meanings. When Adam + Eve discovered they were naked, if ya go by artistic interps, they are depicted with a paste-on fig leaf. In other cultures of the world really far removed from Ur of Chaldea, a group of sea-daring folk paddled their way around the Pacific and brought their flower-based culture with them.http://www.hawaiiflowerlei.com/leitradition.aspx
So, in this context its perfectly proper to say, ya know I went to Hawaii and a wahine gave me a free lei as soon as I got off the plane. I sms'd my homey's and said man ya gotta come here, yer guaranteed to get lei'd. Ya see Ike does this sort of sleight of hand as well when he hits upon a word or phrase that fits his agenda, and spins it for all its worth, just like I did with the Hawaii bit.
But, conversely, can a tourist say in return as a sign of gratitude for his free lei, yeah baby, lemme plant
a kiss on yer (2-lips )tulips down there. This again is consonant with how Ike presents his material, yes?
Hawaiian history was oral history.
It was codified in genealogies
and chants, which were memorized strictly as passed down. In the absence of a written language, this was the only available method of ensuring accuracy. Chants told the stories of creation, mythology, royalty, and other significant events and people.
Instruments and implements
▪ Ipu—single gourd drum
▪ Ipu heke—double gourd drum
▪ Pahu—sharkskin covered drum; considered sacred
▪ Pūniu—small knee drum made of a coconut shell with fish skin (kala) cover
▪ ʻIliʻili—water-worn lava stone used as castanets
▪ ʻUlīʻulī—feathered gourd rattles
▪ Pūʻili—split bamboo sticks
▪ Kālaʻau—rhythm sticks
The dog's-tooth anklets sometimes worn by male dancers can be considered instruments, as they underlined the sounds of stamping feet.
Traditional female dancers wore the everyday pāʻū, or wrapped skirt, but were topless. Today this form of dress has been altered. As a sign of lavish display, the pāʻū might be much longer than the usual length of tapa, or barkcloth, which was just long enough to go around the waist. Visitors report seeing dancers swathed in many yards of tapa, enough to increase their circumference substantially. Dancers might also wear decorations such as necklaces, bracelets, and anklets, as well as many lei (in the form of headpieces, necklaces, bracelets, and anklets).
Traditional male dancers wore the everyday malo, or loincloth. Again, they might wear bulky malo made of many yards of tapa. They also wore necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and lei.
The materials for the lei worn in performance were gathered in the forest, after prayers to Laka and the forest gods had been chanted.
The lei and tapa worn for sacred hula
were considered imbued with the sacredness of the dance, and were not to be worn after the performance. Lei were typically left on the small altar to Laka found in every hālau, as offerings
There are various legends surrounding the origins of hula.
According to one Hawaiian legend Laka, goddess of the hula, gave birth to the dance on the island of Molokaʻi, at a sacred place in Kaʻana. After Laka died, her remains were hidden beneath the hill Puʻu Nana.
Another story tells of Hiʻiaka, who danced to appease her fiery sister, the volcano goddess Pele. This story locates the source of the hula on Hawaiʻi, in the Puna district at the Hāʻena shoreline. The ancient hula Ke Haʻa Ala Puna describes this event.
Another story is when Pele, the goddess of fire was trying to find a home for herself running away from her sister Namakaokaha'i (the goddess of the oceans) when she finally found an island where she couldn't be touched by the waves. There at chain of craters on the island of Hawai'i she danced the first dance of hula signifying that she finally won
I am sure this last part is really gonna make Renne's day. hehehe
This gal is known for sayin' it in her inimitable style....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4rPIjWqMRc
along with that comes additional refrains that have been ad libbed in, like, give it all ya got, don't stop 'til ya drop, etc.
It seems once a particular mojo has been set in motion, its a situation which allows for all sorts of grafting in, just like the New Age 'thang'. For example, how did Ike miss this, with all of his thoro' research he claims.http://www.bubbygram.com/churchsigns.htm
This is right up Roger's ally, but Ike see's errant clerics doing what they can to capitalize on doing 'God's Work' and yet have absolutley nuthin' top do with the org Opus Dei, yet by Ike's way of spin, even a cult like La Sanch, if it claims to be doin' God's Work, is tarnished as well, yes?...http://news.goldseek.com/GoldSeek/1258049769.php
Then ya get this situation which cropped up in the Medieval Period, is it the fault of La Sanch by default, due to the costumes?...they are obviously linked, yes?...http://www.henrymakow.com/marranos_--_t ... crypt.html
Since I haven't finished reading The Rise, I wonder how Ike will describe this person, if he does at all...http://theuglytruth.wordpress.com/2009/ ... -favorite-
This Medieval dude was quite influential, so where does he factor in?...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guide_for_the_Perplexed
As ya can see, when I read thru The Rise, page by page, trying to see events happening in their actual time line setting, the conclusions Ike draws are strictly his IMHO, and in no way shape or form rep the actual status quo. From what I have read so far, Ike has assembled a narrative that coulsd easily have been entitled...Shit Happens...
BTW, Renne, when ya asked me how to develop a theory. its this easy, just link as ya go, and stay focused. But make sure, what ya link to is relevant to the overall theme.
