The Dimensions of Dance

"Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the Creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many an occasion when I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists. I become the stars and the moon. I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing and then, it is the eternal dance of creation. The Creator and the creation merge into one wholeness of joy. I keep on dancing — until there is only ... the dance." - Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson has long been known to the world as one of the greatest dancers that has ever lived. His elaborate moves have become iconic and are forever ingrained in our collective consciousness. He is one of the few artists who's impact transcends all cultures, races, sexual orientations, and spiritual beliefs. In the quote above Michael seems to reveal the secret to his legendary dance moves. To him dancing was more than just having fun, it was a spiritual experience.

In retrospect the signs have been there all along. When you listen to the smooth groove of "Rock With You" the lyrics seem to point to something deeper than simply dancing with a hot girl at the club.

Girl, close your eyes
Let that rhythm, get into to you
Don't try to fight it
There ain't nothin' that you can do
Relax your mind

One can view these lyrics and imagine Michael guiding a young lady to the dance floor and teaching her the correct way to get into the groove. With that said, these lyrics also correlate with another experience.

In the past I have explored the reoccurring themes of dance in relation to Monarch programming and mind control when used in music videos by Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and Kylie Minogue. But as with most things associated with mind control, once you dig deep enough you'll discover that most of the rituals associated with mind control stem from spiritual origins that are now being used as methods of control. Are there still signs of the spiritual aspects of dance that have remained in our culture? Or are these connections simply just another form of control?

David Bowie is another artist that has used the theme of dance in his work. His long history of esoteric references makes his use of this theme all the more interesting. David Bowie has sung about dancing in songs such as "John, I'm Only Dancing" and "Fashion" - the latter pointing more to the control and hive-mind mentality of the fashion world. The song I chose to focus on is the Nile Rogers produced "Let's Dance".
The music video starts off with two individuals dancing on a checkerboard floor with David Bowie singing in the corner. The checkerboard floor is most commonly referenced as a symbol of Freemasonry but what is rarely discussed is why the Freemasons have adopted the checkerboard floor as their symbol of choice. The checkerboard floor represents light and darkness and dimensional traveling. Dancing as a spiritual tool represents disassociating from the purely physical plane and crossing over into another state of consciousness as Michael Jackson explained above. With these facts into consideration the inclusion of the checkerboard floor in this video takes on a deeper meaning than simply Illuminati symbolism.

In the song "Let's Dance" David Bowie suggests that we dance to the "songs they're playing on the radio". As he continues he sings "under the moonlight, the serious moonlight". Peter-R. Koenig has done an extensive investigation into the Occult references in David Bowie's work and has looked at David Bowie's use of the word "serious" over the years as a code word for Sirius. This is not surprising considering Bowie's love of playing with words and their multiple meanings.

David Bowie used a similar lyrical reference in his song "Starman" in which he sings about a cosmic experience induced by the channeling of an entity heard on a radio.
Let's dance to the songs they're playing on the radio,
Under the moonlight, the Sirius moonlight


The video also centers heavily around these pair of red shoes. Red shoes have become a constant stable in popular culture ever since the iconic film the Wizard of Oz was released. Since then red shoes have been used to usher in the emergence of Beyonce in "Crazy In Love" and as Britney searches for herself in "If U Seek Amy".

In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy slips into the world of Oz through a dream. Dreaming requires us to go beyond our physical plane and, in a sense, enter a new realm. With that taken into consideration the red shoes become yet another image in this music video that points to the experience of traveling beyond the physical plane.
Although there were no red shoes featured in the video, Madonna takes a similar path down the yellow brick road in her iconic music video "Vogue".

"All you need is your own imagination
so use it that's what it's for
Go inside all you'll find is inspiration
Your dreams will open the door" - Vogue
The spiritual element of this song was heightened when Madonna performed it during 2004's Re-Invention tour. As she "striked a posed" the poses were yoga poses. The video projections showcased her breathing techniques.
Grace...


"This is way beyond the physical,
tonight my senses don't make sense at all.
Our imaginations taking us to places we have never been before" - Britney Spears, Breathe On Me
In 2003, just after their infamous kiss, Britney Spears and Madonna hooked up for the first single from Britney's fourth album In The Zone. In the video Madonna teaches Britney some yoga moves while she suggest instead of losing control the young star should bare her soul.

The title In The Zone always reminds me of the Twilight Zone which is interesting considering the dimensional references within the show.

It's also interesting that the color used on the cover is blue. The characters of the latest pop culture phenomenon Avatar are blue when transported into their universe.
Dr. Manhattan, a character from Watchman, is another reference to blue.
Check out his third eye. Sun symbolism?
Strike a pose.

The Blue Man Group are another example that comes to mind.
DNA in their show.

Popular female group TLC were also blue on the cover of their 1999 album Fanmail. When the album was initially released it contained a holographic version of the cover. Revealing the nature of the universe through the symbolic triple goddess? This was the last album that Left Eye (of Horus) was alive to see succeed.
Like TLC, No Doubt were huge throughout the 90's. In 2002 they released a more uptempo album titled Rock Steady. One of the many hits from the album was "Hella Good". In the song lead singer Gwen Stefani sings "The waves keep on crashing on me for some reason", what waves radio waves? She continues and sings "Don't wake me if I'm dreaming". This is yet another example of dancing and dreaming intertwining within music. The music video for "Hella Good" features many references that point to an alternative meaning to the song than what is generally perceived.
Lead singer Gwen Stefani continued this road into symbolic pop culture in her solo work.
In the above ad for her perfume LAMB, the four colors used are Blue, Red, Yellow, and Green. These colors are very symbolic and have been used countless times. Before you came to this blog you probably seen them being used without even noticing.
The colors are very common and are used in many logos and ads.

One of the reasons for this is that they are primary colors so they are naturally attractive to the eye hence the constant use by the media who are always trying to lure us in to get our money. Many people will notice that these same colors are used by the Order of the Eastern Star.
Earlier I explained that the checkerboard floor symbolism predates Freemasonry and symbolizes something deeper so it should come as no surprise that these colors should not automatically be linked with the Order of the Eastern Star. These colors were used by the always interesting Aleister Crowley.
Even before that the colors were used to symbolize various spiritual beliefs.

These same colors were used in the film The Fifth Element to symbolize the four elements, the fifth element being spirit.
It's interesting how once you go on this path of seeking the truth everything make more sense. I have seen Madonna's "Ray of Light" video countless times and now that I've been exploring these four colors a new dimension has been added to the last scene of her dancing in the club.
Those colors again! I've also noticed white is in most of these photos. White represents spirit, the fifth element. This is yet another example of Madonna expressing her spirituality with dance.
The colors also made an appearance in the film Space Odyssey.
Michael Jackson used the colors to invite us into a new realm in the dance extravaganza Moonwalker. He liked the colors so much that he used them again years later.

In 1985 Madonna released "Into the Groove". Like the aforementioned "Vogue", "Into the Groove" is about finding freedom within dance. The song was featured on the soundtrack to the popular 80's movie Desperately Seeking Susan. Both the music video for "Into the Groove" and the movie Desperately Seeking Susan feature a leather jacket worn by Madonna that has become iconic.
The jack features an All Seeing Eye with an unfinished pyramid just like the back of the dollar bill. This symbolism has led many people to believe that Madonna is a part of or controlled by the powers that be. To me the All Seeing Eye should not be instantaneously perceived as a symbol for control. The eye has been a symbol for spirituality for centuries.
Jacopo da Pontormo used what is now known as the All Seeing Eye in his painting Supper at Emmaus. Although there is speculation as to whether or not he intended the symbol to appear in his painting or it was added at a later date, it's inclusion sheds an interesting light on the nature of symbolism; if symbols can mean different things at different times are the meanings of these symbols being decided for us as time goes by? Are we giving the elite more power and surpressing the spiritual power of symbols by only seeing "Illuminati" when we see them?

The All Seeing Eye is just one in a long list of commonly referenced eye symbols. The All Seeing Eye could be seen as another representation of the third eye or the Eye of Horus. Like the Tree of Life and Kundalini they could represent the same spiritual experience. Many have speculated that the Eye of Horus could represent the Pineal Gland which would be interesting and link the symbol to various other intertwining spiritual experienced
If the Egyptians were aware of the Pineal Gland let's not let anyone marginalize their other symbols.

With that being said it is important to note that the jacket worn by Madonna is identical to the dollar bill so just what were the pictures suppose to represent?
Right on time, Pseudo-Occult Media posted a Antonella Arismendi photo shoot titled Gnosis.
The title Gnosis itself points to spiritual knowledge but that theme is heightened by the inclusion of the Tree of Life on the models back. Also included is Novus Ordo Seclorum from the dollar bill.

Pop/Rock band Fall Out Boy used eye symbolism without the pesky reminders of the elite. The eye is placed behind the key. Is the dance the key to consciousness?

"I'm in a trance
Cosmic systems intertwine
Astral bodies drip like wine
All of nature ebbs and flows
Comets shoot across the sky
Can't explain the reasons why
This is how creation goes" - Madonna, Impressive Instant

Electronic band Justice symbolize the spiritual aspect of dance most effectively with their song "D.A.N.C.E.". There's no beating around the bush with the imagery associated with this band, they perform music about dancing while simultaneously using a cross in every photo and performance. This symbolism connects dance and Christ Consciousness directly.

"If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thru' narrow chinks of his cavern." - William Blake

"To infinity and beyond" - Beyonce, Single Ladies


Those damn colors again.

  1. Hell of a post, great job. That screen shot from the 'Ray of Light' video is freaky. Personally I think Madonna fell off when vogue came out. I dig all the stuff before. For me the Kabbalah is just like the bible or any other dogmatic/religious view, I can only take a sprinkle of it to put in my own dogma.

    Let me explain a bit of what I am trying to say short of typing an essay. In the Kabbalah you are suppose to become a God, so to anyone that is Christian you literally are a "Lucifer". That part I personally dig about it. But all the mess with the EGO I hate. I hate any dogma or philosophy that deals with EGO or EGO's. Thats why her and Britney have such "big heads" IMO. I imagine being a celeb is hard enough to be grounded and add Kabbalism with that, seems to me like a recipe for a meltdown. Again just my opinion.

    PS Check out this post I did the other day. It syncs up nice to your end:http://synchronize23.blogspot.com/2010/01/drmanhattan.html

  2. Amazing. Great work! The way things start to sync up when start looking... it's gotta be a sign that you're heading in the right direction. i spoke in converstion with some of the sync whole crew recently about having some sort of goal to reach for in all this, using the metaphor of the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow...

    i love these new revelations about the paradox of the dancing spirit. how perfect that you started your post with MJ; after writing the Wonderland series, i noticed i was inadvertently ending my posts with MJ... it seems, like me, you're discovering that if you start with a concept and simply investigate logically, the syncs come to you, you dont have to stretch your stuff to find connections for the sake of argument.

  3. Beyon-Ce'; Nice! To infinity and beyond... a peculiar line to put in a "meaningless" dance song. reminds me of a line from Lil Wayne verse from the song Every Girl; "I don't think you're beautiful, I think you're beyond it"; i remember thinking "what's beyond beautiful?"... over the rainbow...

    one has to wonder about the extent to which "single ladies" has taken over the world. your image reminded me how beyonce's amazing body and [dance] movements hypnotized me. damn she's fine. why oh why do they make her wear butt pads?

  4. Great work, Yeshua. I second what Toure said. We really need to formulate some form of objective to find the real meaning behind the symbolism. I do feel that we are getting close it, especially with all of the recent signs popping up all over the synchverse. Perhaps, we need to have a conference or electronic conference, to see if we can point all the synchs to the ultimate truth. Keep up the good work.

  5. The Quark Observer - That is something I was thinking of a while back about how if you look at Madonna and the Kabbalah from a Christian view it is what they describe as Lucifer. That's why truth seekers are quick to call all entertainment evil because it is preaching the opposite of what they believe a lot of the time.

    Toure - Your new post is incredible as usual. I was surprised we both commented on the blue sync at the same time, how unusal. I am definitely at the point where the syncs are just coming to me which is refreshing because I learn a lot in the process instead of just repeating the same things over and over and not getting anywhere. This post was partially inspired by your Wonderland III piece and then when I read that Micheal Jackson quote I knew I had to investigate.

    Andre - I see what you're saying and possibly it may mean something different to each of us individually. It is very interesting how a lot of us are exploring the same things at the same time. It must mean something.

  6. Just a note to say I think that Beyonce isn't wearing bum-pads, it's just a trick of the light and the corset she has got on to hold it all in!
    Yeshua - I have to tell you that I have become so hooked on this stuff (or is it hood-winked) that I've finally decided to start my own blog on the subject. My brave new move is at http://thesignificanceofr.blogspot.com/

  11. Sandman - Thanks for the support. As far as what you can do, the only thing I can say is open your eyes. I have always had strong intuition and I feel we all have this. Just research and use your intuition and you'll end up where you need to be.

    words - I was hoping that this post would ease some of the fear and confusion we have about the "Illuminati". Although I'm still into researching and being aware I am now at the point where I realize our power is beyond any manipulation that anyone could even try to pull off.

    Steve - I'm glad you're enjoying this blog and evolving in life.

  13. Thanks for posting that link. It looks like this stuff is hitting the mainstream. I have seen symbolism being discussed in mainstream blogs and even the stars themselves are forced to address the rumors. I have noticed it's all being simplified as if you can pick up a "symbolism for dummies" book. With this post I was trying to challenge myself and make sure I was still exploring symbolism instead of just repeating the same things over and over. It can get to a point where people are just looking for photos or videos to back up what they already believe to be true. What good does that do? What can you learn from that? It's interesting that by exploring pop culture we have become a part of pop culture. It will be interesting to see who's up for exploring our own ideas that we present and challenging ourselves since we are now a part of the culture.

  14. "Are there still signs of the spiritual aspects of dance that have remained in our culture? Or are these connections simply just another form of control?"

    Can you elaborate a bit on this statement? By spiritual aspects, do you mean aspects of dance that remain untainted by the demands and desires of a systematic agenda for mind control? The connections you mention; are you implying that even the root source of modern traditions (of dance) are just older systems of mind control?

    Secondly, I have been tossing around the theme of rave culture and its relation to dance and systematic mind control for awhile now. I would really like to know if you have thoughts on this as well. Rave culture first appeared in Europe in the 90's, and is now flourishing in the United States (mostly Western). What are your thoughts on this dance-centric sub-culture? Dance is considered the glue that binds this culture together; dancing into trance (usually dancing to electronic 'trance' music), in a sort of religious worship of the 'machine' or 'DJ' (God) that plays for them a continuous loop of music all night, usually until the sun comes up. I have a lot to say about dance and the rave culture. I am curious if you know much about this or have thoughts/opinions about 'rave' culture and its many dimensions of 'dance.' Given the nature of trance or electronic music, and the all-night dance parties it attracts, I suspect there is much to consider on this subject.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    P.S. I have been following your blog for a month or so and think its great. This is my first post on here. If you want to talk more, I believe we are connected via facebook somehow.

  15. "Can you elaborate a bit on this statement? By spiritual aspects, do you mean aspects of dance that remain untainted by the demands and desires of a systematic agenda for mind control?"

    That is exactly what I mean.

    "The connections you mention; are you implying that even the root source of modern traditions (of dance) are just older systems of mind control?"

    No, not at all. The traditions of dance that I speak of in my posts were intended for spiritual purposes. In connecting these traditions to modern pop culture I was left wondering if these were genuine spiritual connections or are they just more manipulation. The mind control and spiritual aspects are connected because many spiritual rituals including Shamanism and Eastern mysticism were studied when building many mind control system. The trances that were once used for spiritual purposes are now used as methods of control. Many times I feel an innate spiritual connection to these songs; a freedom that I can't describe. I believe that is due to the spiritual root of dance and trance.

    I have thought about rave culture. There is definitely a spiritual connection there that I think people respond to. It's sort of like many religions and spiritual practices; people connect to it because there's some innate truth that resonates with them but there is also always room for manipulation. In the end I think it depends on how each person responds to it. Some people feel the spiritual connection and some are just getting high. A lot of really young kids lives have been ruined due to rave culture and the drugs that are so common in them. It's really the same as the hippie movement, it can be used for spiritual purposes but there was some manipulation involved and a lot of lives were ruined.

  16. I also wanted to add a lot of pop songs are now picking up from Rave culture and electronic music. The difference is there is a really slow vibration that is used in them. It feels like your energy is being zapped. It makes you tired listening to them. That mixed with the lights, alcohol, and drugs is not a good mixed. The people in these clubs don't notice because the popular thing to do is to mix energy drinks with the alcohol which gives you the illusion that you have a ton of energy.

  19. Dancing is perfect not only because we exercises the body but also because we can meet a lot of people when we go out to get fun, I think that dancing is the best way to know women because if I have excellent movements they'll love us.
