-:- stadium of light -:-

:: notes and reprots on my breakthrough experience ::

Besagement: I saw in the distance below a STADIUM OF LIGHT. Floated down. Loud applause for everyone's arrival. Landed on the grass. I am now an athlete, but Ancient Greek athlete. I look down. The ground on which I am standing is still rippling and liquified. I go to move and the ripple earth swallows me down. Two circling fish, which multiply into a thundering fish shoal. I slip down through the fish and go down, down, down to the depth of the ocean along a road of lights...

... No, wait. haha. There's an aquarium under the stadium. That's where I am. I can even see a couple of spectators peering in at me. ha ha. Still in the water, I feel the starburst begin above me. The stadium and its millions of people are going into the starburst that I mentioned in the pre-voyage. My hands begin to break up into light ...

... Each spectator (millions) then burst upwards along vertical columns of light. Burst into light. My hands also burst into light, rippled along my arms and throughout me. Fragmented and burst into light. I then realised the whole damn stadium was entering STARBURST together.

... Hands of light. This time, I pass easily through the aquarium, up past the Stadium and into the starburst with everyone. We are hurtling along at breakneck...no...breakreality speed. To fly this fast is actually very reassuring to all of us. Everything outside our starburst - stars, clouds etc - is a blur, barely visible…

Unpacking #1: "Orion... trajectory calculations" - A synchronicity. I saw Orion at the centre of the Stadium of Light. The web begins to open up... A preliminary sketch of the space... THE STADIUM OF LIGHT. There are millions there. I slipped into the ocean but this place is in the heart of the sky - the ocean in the sky, the maelstrom and the mountain, the two diametric opposites are linked and Orion feels like the gateway. OK, I remember reading that the Underworld was really the Southern Sky and Heaven was the Far Northern Sky. Orion straddles the celestial equator so the mandala starts to make sense: the Ocean is the deep deep south, the underworld, and the starburst is towards the far north, and Orion - the stadium - is the gateway to both...

Unpacking #2: For me, the space is eternal. It doesnt dissipate over time for I visited it a long time ago and I visited it in the present. Once again salvia has shown me that linear time just...doesn't work...or that there is some place outside time which works more strongly. The Stadium of Light dissipates its energy throughout time, but in an eternal sense it doesn't change. I know therefore that I will be able to visit it again, whether it be empty or thronged. But I know and feel that it's energy is rippling off in waves into the present world of time...

Unpacking #3: I realised that there is a directional component to the Stadium, if the orientation of the Orion constellation is to be a guide – the constellation can be picked out in stars on the Stadium floor. In the above image, the stadium is aligned with the North at the right and the South at left. Judging by this, during my Pre-Voyage, I arrived in the centre of the Stadium but was facing south – remember that I had to voyage through the hyperspaceway and the ‘upper spaces’ to get there. However, during my main voyage, I sunk underground (under Stonehenge ), and then on reaching the Stadium of Light, sunk underground again. At this point, judging by Orion, I was very much on the North side of the stadium.

Unpacking #4: Summer soltstice... the SUN light shines through the Milky Way and throws down a bridge to the Land of the Gods...so so many ancient mythologies from the Incas to the Greeks trusted in this idea... The Sun stands still in the sky - time stops. Orion, yes, it straddles the celestial equator. It's present in the Stadium of Light. Perfect. The solstice Sun stops at the celestial equator too...

 

they flickered there
in front of me for a moment...
