    All I Want For Christmas.

    Bear witness friends. The octagonal 1960's fortune telling or "talking board" game Ka-bala!

    (Glows in the dark...sweet!)

    If there was a contest for the weirdest talking board of all time, ka-bala the Mysterious Game that Foretells the Future, would win unequivocally. From the eerie green glow-in-the-dark board, to the smashed dragon impaled by the Eye of Zohar, ka-bala gives new meaning to the word "bizarre." You and a partner are instructed to start the game with the chant: "PAX, SAX, SARAX, HOLA, NOA., NOSTRA." From this point on, anything can happen as the two of you, with your hands on the "Solary Projectors," roll a black marble around the channel that circles the board and wait for it to come to rest at one of the many symbols. Depending on the "Astral Plane" chosen, the future is revealed by letters and numbers like a talking board, or by Tarot cards placed in specially designed "wells," or astrologically by the zodiac conveniently spelled out in bas-relief around the perimeter of the board. Care must be taken not to get too carried away as you play since the black marble has a tendency to leave the channel and fly across the room like a bullet. Did I mention that the Eye of Zohar follows your every move? The instruction sheet that comes with ka-bala is especially helpful. All the rules are presented in great detail along with the sage advice that the lights must be on in order to read the Tarot cards.

    A few synchromystic observations if you will.

    If this were the case the secrets and legends surrounding the Benben stone - the Ka'ba - would have been known by the ruling elite of the Hyksos. They would be know by Abraham, Joseph, Akhenaton and Moses, and finally by Jesus himself, and so the secret of the sacred stone would have been clearly understood by the ancient Judiac priesthood in Jerusalem. In this case is it any coincidence that the mystical sect of Judaism is know as the Kabbalah, a word which combines Ka'ba and Allah, meaning 'cube' and 'god'. Ralph Ellis, "Jesus Last of the Pharaohs," p. 288

    Kabala according to Ellis then is 'Cube' 'God'.

    (Note: The Masjid al-Haram Mosque has octagonal towers)

    The reason for these pyramids being physically visible during the first exodus is given in the book Tempest, where it was explained that some of this exodus story, especially the wanderings in the wilderness, represented rituals at Giza. The 'wanderings' were actually the origins of the processional rituals that are still performed at Mecca during the Hajj. "Eden in Egypt," Ralph Ellis, p. 166

    The Kaaba at mecca can be viewed as a place of worship likely directly evolved from the Pyramids of Giza. Not to mention that the black stone mounted on the cube could be the original Benben of Heliopolis! Octagon Maat Giza Layout

    The pyramids of Giza themselves are part of a giant octagon and the Masjid al-Haram mosque, the location of the Kaaba, has octagonal towers. Is the Kaaba (cube) and the mosque still betraying its Giza origins through the octagonal resonance at play here?

    The game Ka-bala has a rotating black spherical element at the centre of an octagon.

    The WTC pillarmids had a giant rotating spherical sculpture intended by the architect Yamasaki to represent the Kaaba.
    The new Illuminati founding date sized (1776 feet) Tower that is replacing the Twin Pillarmids, The Freedom Tower is, like Giza, the Kaaba mosque towers and this Ka-bala game also octagonal. It seems they have intertwined the two towers into one, the sacred onion of the double square or some such esoteric reasoning?

    A side view of the major element of the tower. To tell the truth, it's even weirder as this "Square Antiprism" part sits atop a cubic element! Not to mention that it has a giant Buckminster Fuller (he believed in E.T. telepathy) inspired mast that's gonna beam a giant f'n light/torch beam into night sky. Think about it, carefully...

    The Kaaba resonant Freedom Towers base, a cube (above). The aerial profile of a Square Antiprism (below). Yip, that there's an octagon alright...
    The 'nothing to see here please move along' pyramid with black square capstone logo of the dudes responsible for the new 'sacred hermaphrodite' Pillarmids' development.

    Creepy Corporate Logo giving away conscious knowledge of this synchromystically determined occult pyramid resonance? You decide.

    Thanks to Tom for sending me an email about this game.

    Well, one more thing I want for Christmas is a copy of Robert Shea's " The Saracen: The Holy War". I have never been able to find a copy. If you have one and want to trade me for one of my drawings, send me an email.

    Hi Jake, great to see you're reverting to the written format, at least for a while.

    Any idea how old that LMDC logo is? (You should definitely incorporate this find into a video, if you get the chance... Great find!)


    Dennis/87 said...

    What does it all mean? Will the etheric forces inherent in this 8 sided structure open a stargate or will it infer powers to people of the masonic order> I think the proposed structure is beautiful on many levels. Floyd (Echos) Crazy diamond. Dude, I peruse every post of yours. Finger on the pulse? Respectfully, Dennis.

    Jake Kotze said...

    Yo, Benben.
    Glad your perusing some of these little pieces. I didn't intend to start writing again. I have just found some things to say in between putting out videos. Maybe they will increase into more elaborate articles. I must admit I find the writing daunting (have I used the excuse yet that English isn't the language I was schooled in?), I can hardly spell. Some practise couldn't hurt, I imagine.
    I don't know how old LMDC logo is.
    "The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) was formed after the September 11 attacks to plan the reconstruction of Lower Manhattan and distribute nearly $10 billion in federal funds aimed at rebuilding downtown Manhattan."
    Thus it has only been in use since after 911, more than that, who knows?
    I found it more than half a year ago, have I never mentioned it? I will go digging... I didn't see the black square capstone (just that it was a pyramid with capstone type) till this post however.

    Hi Dennis
    I think its a pretty building as well.
    What does it all mean?
    I don't know...

    Ben Fairhall said...

    Hi Jake,

    I have attempted to summarise some of your findings re: the octagon in my latest BTB post. Please let me know if I've misunderstood you.

    The LMDC logo is quite stunning, really. I think it expresses a lot of your discoveries in a very eloquent fashion. Typical ORDO AB CHAO stuff, really.

    Its significance? My take is that the octagon (of the Freedom Tower) is a subconscious, possibly deliberate, acknowledgement of the giant SETI-experiment that was the '9/11 mega-ritual.' Does this make sense?


    Michael said...

    The tower presents a cube at the base, that is twisted 45 degrees by the time it reaches the "capstone".

    It reminds me of an article I read long ago about the Nazi swastika being a rotated version of the original, and also how the "X" is the rotated version of the Templar cross.

    No idea what it might mean. Killer board game find.

    Jake Kotze said...

    Yes Ben, what you say in your new Woodstock post and in this comment makes a whole bag o sense. Much appreciated. It's really great to hear somebody reflect back something accurately with their own spin or twist. It helps one see what is being sent out. Like in sub marine movies (which I love!) when the radar goes "PING"...

    The Freedom Tower can also be seen as two pyramids 'unfolded' (split at its sides yet connected at their base) and placed at 45 degree angles above and below. A kind of weird 3D David Star, up and down triangle. Really a mind bending structure, fitting...
    I'm really enjoying your work.
    I don't know if I understand what you mean when you say rotated swastika and Templar cross. Can you elaborate?

    What a funny thing that Ka-Bala game is. I got that email early May, couldn't get it out of my head. Wasn't they kind of thing to make a video about, but perfect for The Blob.

    Glad its helped uncover the LMDC sync, hmmmm

    Michael said...

    Yea, the geometry of the tower is very cool.

    "I don't know if I understand what you mean when you say rotated swastika and Templar cross. Can you elaborate?"

    It's just that the symbol is shown at a 45 degree angle from square - tilted. The X - which permeates pop culture X-treme, X-Men, OS X, etc, etc, is a templar cross rotated 45 degrees. Just an observation, no big deal. Wikipedia has lots of info about the swastika, and this caught my eye:

    "José Manuel Erbez says:

    The first time the swastika was used with an "Aryan" meaning was on December 25, 1907, when the self-named Order of the New Templars, a secret society founded by [Adolf Joseph] Lanz von Liebenfels, hoisted at Werfenstein Castle (Austria) a yellow flag with a swastika and four fleurs-de-lys."

    Thanks again for writing, always enjoy your work.

    Rotated Swastika/Templar cross/X got it and dig it! Its like when one rotates a square 45 degrees and then call it a diamond. Good observation.

    Brendan said...

    Jake there are a few Ka-bala games on evil bay in the states going quite cheap have a look.
    Have you seen any of the Magical Egypt series by john Anthony West?
    He talks about the true meanings of the symbolism used in ancient Egypt as well as why they used to bypass the normal thought process.
    Link on my blog.
    Interesting post cheers.

    Kinda scary or prescient -
    Lower Manhatten , my winged beauties!
    Shall we lower it slowly or fastly Master?
    Await the opening of the Earth's Crust, use your powerful, GM wing-muscle to suspend Manhattan above the chasm, and then slowly lower, making sure it doesn't knock down my of the expensive shrubbery thats taken years to root, bud and flower inthis subterranean realm where we store stolen Cities
    Slowly then, Master?

    What a game. Maybe we could merge it with Monopoly where u can buy Mayfair or Manhattan for a knock-down price, and then get a whopping insurance payment, because u were warned by the spirits that Iron-Birds etc etc

    With a lot of these 2-D images and flat things unable to exist in our realities I wonder if these Swazzies and Crosses 'hide' or 'veil' a 3-D symbol object. We get so used to accepting flat shapes, with no thickness , I wonder if it's just an ' in plain sighter'
