      As I have written before, there are many ways to approach the
Heidi phenomenon.  I usually write about the mystic and cosmic
aspects of her existence, but one can also think about her in more
mundane terms.

      Her radiance is so great that TV shows rely on her to boost
their ratings.  "Spin City" had her on three consecutive episodes to
open the 1998-99 season and two more episodes to close it.  Last
Superbowl Sunday the Fox-TV show "Malcolm in the Middle" had
her on, too, to ensure that the huge Superbowl audience would stay
tuned to Fox and watch a special episode.

      Magazines have her on the cover near the Christmas holidays,
when circulation increases.  For example, the German edition of
"InStyle" had her on the cover of the January 2002 issue that
circulated in mid-December.

      Similarly "GQ" has her on the cover now for their 45th
anniversary edition, just before the long Labor Day weekend, when
a lot of people will have the time to buy the magazine and leaf
through it for their enjoyment and surprise.

      She is given the opportunity to work with the best
photographers and magazine editors to come up with photographs
that are complex works of art.  The following photograph from
"GQ" shows her as both Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield:

http://www.dman-presents.com/bidaily/bigd-scan403-HeidiKlum-
08.jpg

      Look at the man at the far left.  Does he look like actor Robert
Downey, Jr?  How about the old man in the center, between Sophia
and Jayne?  Does he look like Johnny Carson?

      The photo’s caption reads:

      "  …  Sophia Loren – no stranger to double takes (and neither is
Heidi) …  "

      Are we supposed to do a double take as to the identity of these
Downey and Carson look-alikes?

      Jayne Mansfield died of a wound to the head in a car accident
on June 29, 1967:

      ***  Heidi’s birthday is June 1.

      ***  Jayne’s death anniversary is June 29, 28 days after Heidi’s
(and Marilyn Monroe’s) birthday.

      ***  28 days after Jayne’s death anniversary, Heidi was
photographed with Jayne’s daughter, actress Mariska Magdalena
Hargitay, on July 27, 2002, in Water Mill, N.Y., close to the
Hamptons of Long Island and Montauk Point:

      Mariska was in the car with her mother at the time of the
accident.

      ***  28 days later, on August 24, 2002, Heidi was
photographed in Southampton, near Montauk Point, again:

Is it me or do things seem to be taking a close Orwellian resemblence? Just a
FEW examples, Canivore,(government virus uploaded to your pc to monitor your
browsing and downloading habits). Then theres Brainwave Scanning which is being
tested at the moment and will be placed in many public areas(sounds alot like
the telescreens they could never get away from) . TIPS(your children and
neighbors spying on you=the thought police). Im sure youve heard about how all
librarys now submit library records to the fbi,cia justice dept and just about
every other three letter organization. Sounds like theyre working on erasing
the past now. Look for development in that area sometime in the near future. Oh
and you cannot forget the smart implant chips that are already being used. The
chips are manditory for military personell and have been issued to many
ordinary citizens as well. GPS anyone?? then there is of course all the
monopolies, in big buisiness that control, phones, internet(network solutions),
OIL, water, gas….ect but that is for another post. If this DOESNT SCREAM
ORWELLIAN I DO NOT KNOW WHAT COULD COME CLOSER. This is Emmanual Goldstien

      Masonic symbolism is complex.  It’s like learning a foreign language.
You wouldn’t expect to learn French over the weekend, and you can’t learn a
whole lot about the Illuminati in a few months.

      Here are some basics:

      3:  the Holy Trinity

      7:  a good number

      11:  duality, good and evil, light and darkness, man and woman, Gemini,
the Twins

      13:  characteristic of the United States, a.k.a. New Atlantis

      17:  the number of Horus, the God of the New Age

      19:  the 19-year Metonic cycle of the Moon.  Every 19 solar years the
Moon shows the same phase on the same date.

      23:  July 23 is the central day of the Dog Days of Summer, when Sirius,
the Dog Star, rises with the Sun.

      33:  the highest degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.

      47:  The Pythagorean Theorem is also known as the 47th proposition of
Euclid.

      3 * 47 = 141

      Buy the September 2002 issue of "GQ" for your husband and point out to
him that the last page is numbered 506:

      506 – 365 (the days in a year) = 141

      On page 506 there is a photograph of Heidi, who is often associated with
the number 47.

      If page 1 of "GQ" is taken as September 1, 2002, then page 506
corresponds to January 19, 2004.

      January 19:  1/19

      1/19, or 119:  11/9, the 11th of September in European notation.

conspiracy of the week: Dr. Raymond Bernard

I suspect the G on the side of Masonic temples stands for Godzilla, leader of
the dinosaurs who rule the hollow earth.  Note that Raymond Burr starred in the
first Godzilla film, and he later starred in the TV show Perry MASON.  Perry of
course relates to Parsival, the pure fool, and both Percy Blakeney, the Scarlet
Pimpernel, and Percy Shelley, who wrote:  

To hope til hope itself creates
from its own wreck the thing it contemplates.

      A few days ago a fan asked Heidi at the Forum of her official Web site

http://www.heidiklum.com

where she appears in "Zoolander".  She is credited as appearing, but the fan
had not figured out where she appears.  The Goddess did not make an epiphany to
answer him, but I, her servant, responded that Heidi appears early in the
movie, in the awards scene, when Zoolander mistakenly gets up to receive an
award.

      That was not enough for me, of course, and I went and bought the
"Zoolander" DVD to examine the matter more closely.  (I had seen the movie as
soon as it had come out last year, right after the Attack on America, but could
not remember all the details.)

      Well, it turns out that Heidi is seen for just a few seconds, seated
right behind Zoolander and next to her husband, the hairdresser Ric Pipino.

      The mystery is that when Derek Zoolander first appears in the movie, he
is being prepared for a modeling session and his hairdresser is Ric Pipino.

      The DVD has a "commentary" version of the movie and Ben Stiller (who
plays Zoolander) points out during this hairdressing scene that his real-life
wife (actress Christine Taylor), who is also in the scene as an interviewing
journalist (and, later on, Zoolander’s romantic interest), has the name
"Mathilda" in the movie and he explicitly states that this name has an
Australian connotation.

      Ric Pipino, of course, is Australian.

      We are supposed to think of Zoolander as Heidi and his rival, Hansel
(played by the blond Owen Wilson), as Claudia Schiffer.  Claudia, too, appears
in the movie for a few seconds at the end, when Zoolander and Hansel save the
Malaysian prime minister.

      I like the movie a lot because it is a "roman a clef" of sorts and
because it parallels my theories.  Ben Stiller, as a matter of fact, had come
up with this concept before me and independently.

      There is a comment in the movie about "Hansel and Gretel (Zoolander)",
code for "Claudia and Heidi".

      Derek Zoolander

      D = 4, Z = 7 (Greek alphabet)

      DZ, 47, the 47th proposition of Euclid, a.k.a. the Pythagorean Theorem.

      And what about Moby?  I have not seen him in the movie yet, but can tell
you that "Moby" was the name of our beloved family cat.

Ever hear of Frank Olsen?

http://www.drmenlo.com/samizdat/index.html
Ever hear of Frank Olsen?<http://www.frankolsonproject.org/ )
He was a CIA scientist who supposedly killed himself after being
secretly dosed with LSD during a MK-ULTRA brainwash experiment in the
50′s. For decades, the CIA denied involvement in his suicide (murder).
His family eventually recieved 750,000 to settle their claims with the
government. New documents( http://www.gordonthomas.ie/162.html )reveal
that Cheney and Rumsefeld were both involved with the cover-up: Cheney
and Rumsfeld were given the task of covering up the details of Frank
Olson’s death. At the time, Rumsfeld was White House Chief of Staff to
President Gerald Ford. Dick Cheney was a senior White House assistant.
. . . Cheney acknowledges that the Olson lawyers will seek to explore
all the circumstances of Dr Olson’s employment, as well as those
concerning his death. In any trial, it may become apparent that we are
concealing evidence for national security reasons and any settlement
or judgement reached thereafter could be perceived as money paid to
cover up the activities of the CIA.

Tito's Ghost for President!

Ananova:  

Dead candidate could stand in Serbian elections

Former communist leader Josip Tito has been proposed as a
presidential candidate in Serbia’s forthcoming elections
despite being dead for 22 years.

The student-led Otpor, or Resistance, political movement
says his ghost would be better than any living politician.

It was one of the key forces behind the ousting of Slobodan
Milosevic.

The group is trying to gather 10,000 signatures to support
the proposal.

A spokesman said: "In only two hours we collected hundreds
of signatures in support of Tito’s candidacy."

The communist leader ruled in Yugoslavia from 1945 to his
death in 1980.

Some RAW exerpts

Some snippets I’ve been collecting:

As of today (August 11, 1997) I find the most interesting ideas in
traditional Buddhism, Nietzsche, Charles Fort, several quantum physicists
(Nick Herbert, David Bohm, Fred Wolfe, David Finkelstein) and in Rupert
Sheldrake. Add together the Buddhist yoga of detachment from fixed ideas and
emotions, Nietzche’s and Fort’s merciless assault on the cultural prejudices
that are so deeply embedded we usualy don’t notice them, quantum uncerainty
and holism, Sheldrake’s special variety of holism, and I think we have the
beginning of a hint of the New Paradigm we need.  But after looking at this
list I realize I should have included Korzybski’s general semantics,
Bandler’s neurolinguistic programming and Leary’s
evolutionary-existentialist neuro-psychology or info-psychology as he most
recently labelled it. – RAW

the living writers whose work especially interests me at present include
Douglas Adams, William Burroughs, who still seems topical no matter how old
he gets, Tom Robbins, who writes the best sentences of anybody working in
English today, George V. Higgins, who sees humans with a wonderful irony and
writes the most realistic dialogue I’ve ever seen (even better than Joyce or
Hemingway), and a lot of scientist-philosophers who seem to me to be giving
us wonderful new ideas and perceptions: Rupert Shelldrake, Ralph Abraham,
Terrence McKenna, Barbara Marx Hubbard, the fuzzy logic people, Riane
Eisler, Nick Herbert, Nichlas Negroponte, Marilyn Ferguson, Peter Rusell,
Fred Alan Wolfe . . . and of course, Tim Leary, who is ill, but may have a
few unpublished books that might still blow all our minds."

I have another list that I revise every couple of months.  This is not my
"Ten Favorite Books" so much as a list of the ten books I wish everyone
would read: the ten books I most feel the lack of in people who otherwise
seem intelligent.  These books would fill anyone’s cranium with useful
information.   In order of priority, the list would begin with:

1.     Ulysses by James Joyce.  Nobody has really entered the 20th century
if they haven’t digested Ulysses.  And if they haven’t entered the 20th
century, they’re going to fall pretty far behind pretty soon, as we enter
the 21st.   There’s a guy I correspond with occasionally who spends all his
time fighting with Fundamentalists over Darwin.  He’s living in the 19th
century; nothing in the 20th century has affected him yet.  He’s carrying on
the brave battles of Thomas Henry Huxley a hundred years later.  I know some
people who are back in the 18th century – Burkian conservatives, trying to
apply Burke’s principles to modern times.  I sometimes do that myself – try
to apply some of Burke’s principles.  But not all of them!  I don’t think
he’s written in stone either.  At any rate, everyone should read Ulysses to
get into the 20th century.  And everybody should struggle as much as they
can with:

2.     The Cantos, by Ezra Pound.  And that means getting to the last page.
You may give up on some pages, and say, "I’ll never figure this stuff out!"
But keep going until you get to the last page.  Pound offers something no
other writer except Dante has ever attempted – and Dante does it in a
medieval way that doesn’t mean much to modern people.  Pound offers a
hierarchy of values. We’ve heard so many voices from the East telling us
"All is One," and we’ve got so many puritanical duelists of all sorts
telling us, "No; there’s good and bad."  And they all define those terms in
their own way: the Christian "good and evil" duality; the ecologist’s
"nature good; man bad" duality; the feminist’s "woman good; man bad"
duality, and so on.  Against this monism and dualism Pound offers a
hierarchy of values, in which he gives you a panoramic picture of human
history, very much like Griffith’s Intolerance, only in it, Pound shows
levels of awareness, levels of civilization, levels of ethics and levels of
lack of all these things.  And you realize that you have a hierarchy of
values too, but you’ve never perfectly articulated it.  Every writer gives
you a hierarchy of values.  But by making this the central theme, Pound
makes you face the question, "Will I accept this as the best hierarchy of
values?"  I can’t, because the guy had a screw loose.  Great poet, but a
little bit funny in the head at times, trying to synthesize Jefferson,
Confucius, Picasso and Mussolini.  So what you’ve got to do is struggle with
Pound, and create your own hierarchy of values to convince yourself that you
grok more than he did. And he combined genius and looniness.  It’s an
invigorating book to get you out of dualism, which is the Western trap, and
monism, which is the Eastern trap, to attain realism: a hierarchy of values.

3.     Science and Sanity by Alfred Korzybski.  This one gives you the tools
to enable you to avoid most of the stupidity prevalent on this planet at
present. It won’t cure all forms of stupidity, and you really have to work
at it; it doesn’t do magic.  But if you use its principles, you’ll gradually
cure yourself of a lot of prevalent forms of stupidity.  If you work at it
hard enough, you may cure yourself of most.  I don’t know; I’m still working
at it.

4.     Ovid.  I wish everybody would read Ovid.  The great myths of our
particular culture – the Greek and Roman myths – can’t be found in any one
book, except Bullfinch or Ovid, and Ovid has a much better style than
Bullfinch.  So read Ovid and get the whole panorama of classical myth.
Classical myth has so much meaning that it permeates every bit of modern
psychology.  The myths of other cultures have much to offer, but we still
need our myths.  So we might as well face up to them.  It’s our culture;
let’s not lose it.  And let’s find out something that happened before 1970.

5.     The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer – just because it’s so damn good.

6.     Justine, by deSade — because everyone needs to be shaken up.
Justine asks you some pretty fundamental questions.  And you may not find
them easy to answer.

7.     Instead of a Book by a Man Too Busy to Write One, by Benjamin Tucker,
which contains the best arguments for minimizing force and maximizing
options; the best argument for extreme Libertarianism that anyone has put
together.  He deals with concrete issues in economics, and makes a damn good
case for a maximum of liberty and a minimum of coercion as a formula for a
happy and prosperous society.

8.     Progress and Poverty, by Henry George.  Not that I agree with it.
But everyone’s heard of Karl Marx and Adam Smith.  If you read Tucker and
George, you get the idea that there are more than two choices.  You don’t
have to choose between them.  There are other options, not in between, but
at right angles to those choices; a hierarchy of possibilities.  George
poses a challenge to both Marxism and orthodox capitalism.

9.     The Open Society and its Enemies, by Karl Popper, which introduces
you to a lot of aspects of modern scientific thought (but in a different way
than Korzybski) and applies them to tearing apart most of the arguments for
determinism and totalitarianism.  I think determinism and totalitarianism
have done so damn much harm that everybody needs a good inoculation against
them. Popper seems the best inoculation.  He fled both the Communists and
the Nazis, and had good emotional reasons for detesting totalitarianism.  He
was a physicist, so he expressed himself in terms of a very deep and
trenchant philosophical analysis of what’s wrong with theories that claim,
"We know what’s best (?) and we know how to achieve it – and we know who has
to be killed to make it happen."

10. Shakespeare.  I think everybody should read Shakespeare, not only
because he was such [a] great poet, but because he’s under so much attack
these days. You might as well check him out for yourself, and it will give
you an idea of how just dumb the politically correct people who attack him
seem in comparison to him.

 Other recommended authors:

Ø    Jonathan Swift.  All of Gulliver’s Travels.  There are some anthologies
which contain not only this, but a selection of his other writings, too.
Swift does a great job of tearing apart conventional ideas about almost
everything. He’s very, very liberating; almost psychedelic in some passages.

Ø    Nietzsche.  There are a couple of good one-volume editions which
contain both Twilight of the Idols and The Anti-Christ.  The two should be
taken together.  They represent Nietzsche at the height of his…whatever it
was. More than any other writer in the history of philosophy, Nietzsche set
out to refute everyone who came before him, without exception and without
mercy, and he had the intellect to do a damn good job.  He tears down so
many accepted ideas that you’re left floating in a kind of nihilistic void.
Many people find this terrifying.  I find it exhilarating, and I manage to
recover from it every time I subject myself to re-reading something by
Nietzsche.  There are a lot of other good books by Nietzsche, but I’d
especially recommend those two.

Ø    Olaf Stapledon.  There’s a one-volume edition that contains both First
and Last Men in London.

Then, when somebody has read that much, I think intelligent conversation can
begin.  Otherwise, we’re pretty much on the level of grunting.

(From the website, books above deleted):  Not the "best" or even my
favorites exactly: just the bare minimum of what everybody really needs to
chew and digest before they can converse intelligently about the 21st
Century – RAW

1.     The Mass Psychology of Fascism, by Wilhelm Reich, M.D.

2.     Finnegans Wake, by James Joyce

3.     Machine Art, by Ezra Pound

4.     Selected Prose, by Ezra Pound

5.     Harlot’s Ghost, by Norman Mailer

6.     Go Down, Moses, by William Faukner

7.     The Alpabet vs the Goddess, by Leonard Shlain

8.     Confucius:The Great Digest, The Unwobbling Pivot, The Analects trans.
by Ezra Pound

9.     Chaos and Cyberculture, by Timothy Leary, Ph.D.

10. Critical Path, by R Buckminster Fuller

11. Digital McLuhan, by Paul Levinson

12. Saharasia, by James DeMeo, Ph.D., For more info or to order visit:

13. The Natural Economic Order, by Silvio Gesell, [see a rare book dealer]

RMJon: I’m surprised neither list included Peter McWilliams’s _Ain’t
Nobody’s Business

If You Do_. I’ll go out on a limb and suggest RAW wants everyone to read
that

one, too.

And some others:

            The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self confidence of
the average man.  The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the
onlooker and calls that self confidence.  The warrior seeks impeccability in
his own eyes and calls that humbleness.  The average man is hooked to his
fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to himself.
            A warrior takes his lot, whatever it may be, and accepts it in
ultimate humbleness.  He accepts in humbleness what he is, not as grounds
for regret but as a living challenge.

            The warrior lowers his head to no one, but at the same time, he
doesn’t permit anyone to lower his head to him.  The beggar, on the other
hand falls to his knees at the drop of a hat and scrapes the floor for
anyone he deems to be higher; but at the same time, he demands that someone
lower than him scrape the floor for him.

     A warrior must be fluid and must shift harmoniously with the world
around him, whether it is the world of reason or the world of will.
