“I know it sounds New Age, but in my meditation, this entity - which is called Metatron - he said, 'we want to hook you back to the radio airwave frequency. We want you to reach junior high schools, high schools and universities. Once you reach them - because we are going to connect you with the best artists of the day - then we want you to present them a new menu. Let them know that they are themselves, multidimensional spirits with enormous possibilities and opportunities. We want you to present them with a new form of existence that transcends religion, politics or the modus operandi of education today.'” - Carlos Santana
I recently ran across the above quote by Carlos Santana and it sparked by interest as I have always been interested in spirituality and lately have been pondering organized manipulation through New Age spiritual practices, which I will get more into in a future blog about Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
The concept of spiritual entities or experiences coming through on a symbolic radio wave is one that is all over popular culture. A few years ago Beck released a song called "Movie Theme" which touched on this very subject. In the song he sang "Listen to the voice / On the radio wave / Somebody needs you / Somebody who is on their way". That section of the song is very similar to what Carlos Santana was speaking about. Beck also sings the lyrics "Mind is awake, anything could lead me astray" which is what I meant by spiritual manipulation. By centering and clearing the mind you could be opening yourself up for anything to enter and distort if you are not spiritually prepared for the experience. It's the same reason big corporations use spiritual symbols because those symbols have power. By using symbolism that triggers our power sources, they can then use that harnessed energy to push whatever project or global operation they want. By simultaneously dumbing us down with the crap we see in popular culture we remain unaware of our spiritual essence and continue to sleep.
Speaking of symbolism, where there is symbolism there is Madonna, so of course Madonna has used the radio theme in her work. Unfortunately Warner Brothers disabled all of their official music from Youtube, so the following clip is a fan recorded clip of the performance.
The performance is a remix of Madonna's 2000 hit "Music" called "Music Inferno". The performance starts off with radio static and with each station there is a different Madonna song. The songs they chose are interesting because each one is symbolic but I won't get into that at the moment.
One of her dancers flashes the horns hand sign during the performance.
As usual the industry recycles ideas to use on their programmed sex kittens (they're all tools for the same purposes, just for different crowds) so Beyonce is using a similar theme on her current I Am Tour.
Again, similar concept, various Beyonce songs coming through on the radio as golden robots do some of her famous dance moves. The radio symbolism is representative of channeling spirits to create music. The headphones Beyonce's dancers are wearing are very similar to the ones Madonna's dancers wore in the performance of "Music" from 2001's Drowned World Tour.
Here we see Fergie performing "Boom Boom Pow" with the Black Eyed Peas in green headphones. She also wore the headphones in the music video for the song.
Here's her bandmate Will.I.Am showing off his all seeing eye.
The video gets really strange as Fergie is shown with reptilian hands and four fingers while shapeshifting and changing colors.
This is all about the future shift with robots as the new man and the emergence of human/animal hybrids.
Here is another video by Felix Da Housecat called "Radio".
Like I said, the radio symbolism is about "channeling" spirits. Here we see two people meditating and channeling.
Here we see a bunch of people meditating in front of a bunch of radios. Why so many scenes of meditation in a music video for a song about a radio?
More meditation. This time we also see a leopard and the number 29 (2+9=11). Of course there's yet another radio.
Here we see a guy caged with a radio.
All of this radio symbolism led me back to David Bowie's song "Starman" which used the theme in a less subliminal way. In my opinion the lyrics are very blunt and pretty much explain what the symbolism is about. Surprisingly this song was a big hit. I wonder why no one questioned the lyrics.
Didn't know what time it was and the lights were low
I leaned back on my radio
Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul,
Then the loud sound did seem to fade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive
There's a starman waiting in the sky He'd like to come and meet us But he thinks he'd blow our minds There's a starman waiting in the sky He's told us not to blow it Cause he knows it's all worthwhile He told me: Let the children lose it Let the children use it Let all the children boogie
I had to phone someone so I picked on you
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too!
Switch on the TV
we may pick him up on channel two
Look out your window I can see his light
If we can sparkle he may land tonight
Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
So the song "Starman" is about channeling a man through a radio frequency. But who is the starman? Well, for the promotion of the Ziggy Stardust album, artist George Underwood drew the characters of the album as a part of the tour booklet.
So here is the Starman. He has an oversized alien-like head and a 6 pointed star above his name. So that's the entity the happy go lucky "Starman" song was about? The line "let the children boogie" ties back into Madonna's song "Music" as an electronic voice in the song sings "do you like to boogie?" Both songs are about the same thing. The Ziggy Stardust character carried through 4 albums; The Rise and the Fall of Ziggy, Aladdin Sane, Pin Ups, and Diamond Dogs. The four albums tell a story of a messiah-like character that comes from above and takes "it all too far", eventually leading the world to the apocalypse. The apocalypse theme comes in on the fourth and final album under the Ziggy Stardust character, Diamond Dogs.
On the cover Bowie is an animal/human hybrid of a human and dog. If Ziggy came from the stars and is haldf Dog could he be from the Dog Star Sirius?
If you click here you can read about Bowie's use of the star Sirius in his song "Let's Dance" as well as other Occult themes in his work.
