Arsenic and War

Many thanks to Alec Ratcliffe who sent me a bunch of photos he took at Elephant & Castle in London relating to my post on Bolton. Alec arrived there on the underground:

The following sign is located at the bottom of the stairs leading up into the light of day:

111 steps

See my post on Repeating Ones to get this little joke.

The day before yesterday I was tagged by Mark Gray in the following photo of Hephaestus, Greek god of the forge:


Hephaestus looks extremely masculine, having developed incredible musculature by making weapons for all eternity.

By the way, Prometheus stole fire from Hephaestus’ forge (see my post on Ellipses).

Hephaestus’ girlfriend Aphrodite is the goddess of love and beauty. Apparently opposites do attract.


Hephaestus is a lame god, meaning he walks with a limp. I’ve always identified with him because I too walk with a limp having two artificial legs myself. I was born without both of my legs below my knees and without my right hand, but I digress.

The Greek word for masculine is arsenikos (Αρσενικός). The word arsenikos is obviously related to arsenic. Perhaps Hephaestus became lame from arsenic poisoning?

Arsenic’s atomic number is 33. Do I need to mention the freemasonic connections to this number?


A lively discussion on Facebook ensued under the picture of Hephaestus with many people chiming in and another one of the things Jan Thulstrup posted was the alchemical symbol for arsenic:

After Alec Ratcliffe climbed the 111 steps at Elephant & Castle, he strolled a short distance to the nearby Imperial War Museum and took this photo. Do you see anything similar?

Weapons made on Hephaestus’ forge belong in the Imperial War Museum don’t they? Maybe that’s why their symbols match.

Here’s a book promoted inside the Imperial War Museum:


The Victoria Cross is the highest military decoration awarded for valour “in the face of the enemy” to members of the armed forces of various Commonwealth countries, and previous British Empire territories…The Victoria Cross has only been awarded 13 times since World War 2. Being so highly prized the medal has fetched over £400,000 at auction. –Source

The Victoria Cross looks suspiciously like a couple of other symbols I mentioned in my Bolton post…

Nazi Iron Cross

Knights Templar Logo Freemasonry

Knights Templar symbol of the freemasonic York Rite

But seeing the following photo Alec took on the way from Elephant & Cross tube station to the Imperial War Museum, do you think I should report the aforementioned suspicious symbols to the authorities?


Reading this sign’s tone with the all seeing eye at the bottom tells me loud and clear that the police state experienced in Nazi Germany might not be too far off so I’ll report these findings directly to you, gentle reader.

Both sides of every war are funded by the same people. If this is news to you I suggest you open your mind and read this article. War is never a solution but a problem to be resisted with non-violence.

“Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.” -Mahatma Gandhi

We are like the elephant, carrying around a fortress on our back and in our subconscious mind. Everything in the monoculture media is a war: the war on terror, war on drugs, war on poverty…when will we choose to end this self-defeating war on consciousness?

If an elephant never forgets then each of us must remember who we really are…

We are all one.

Throw off that castle and free your mind! There is no “other” out there to fight, only an endless diversity of reflections of ourself.

…This just in…

  1. I enjoyed this post very much, Scott. Thank you for sharing the personal information about yourself, too…

    And, indeed, all conflicts are internal. Externalization places judgement before meditation.

  2. they are also similar to the mason compass logo and the rune inguz.
    i think i read something about inguz and male fertility, war, thor

    the connections you make are incredible, especially the stuff with sites lining up and numbers. – thanks

  3. General Sir Richard Dannatt, wrote the introduction to “Forgotten Voices of the Victoria Cross”, one of the books promoted inside the Imperial War Museum.
    I’m curious of the word DAN that appears in his surname; perhaps it needs a little more delving into since we’re discussing the Tribe of DAN…

  4. the XX is the sigil of Saturn… the Hexagram star of david is not a star of david. there is no such thing. it’s the seal of solomon. Saturn’s cymatics are hexagon. so is the hexagram star of david… children of isreal.. if u look deep enough u will see that Isreal is a Phoenician word meaning Saturn… Children of Saturn…. Electric Wizard sings a song called that. stuff gets deep in symbolism.

  5. One became two, so that two could know themselves as One.

    Through his death, Jesus put across the meaning of sacrifice

    Without the knowledge of both good and evil, we could not know the good, and that is worse than evil. Life is not all about the light but a harmonious balance, it is only in the dark that you can become enlightened.

    We are all willing participants in this game we are playing and helping to co create. Life is a cycle and this one has required darkness, pain, evil, and slavery. Yet it is these very things that have allowed us to know our light, find meaning in pain, given us the choice to be good and to truly know what is to be free. Sometimes the only way you can truly know freedom is if you are free to be enslaved.

    This place wasn’t meant to be comfortable, it wasn’t made to be easy, it is meant to be a challenge, it was made to test you, to be the catalyst for your growth. The truth is we can’t always be happy, we can’t always live in peace; we can’t always know what it is to feel true love. We have to experience it ALL to be able to experience any of it; only by accepting the pain and suffering can we overcome the need to experience it. You will look back at all the pain and hurt, all the alienation of our adolescence as a great gift that shaped our beautiful destiny.

    If life hadn’t been so challenging we never could have risen to become champions, if it had not been so dark we would never have able to shine like stars, if it had not been so fearful we could never have known this beautiful love we now share.

    Even in darkness
    there is light,
    For those with courage
    knows no fear.
