Babel: A Pen for The Sheep
"The Tower of Babel was the subject of three paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. The first, a miniature painted on ivory, was painted while Bruegel was in Rome and is now lost. The two surviving paintings, often distinguished by the prefix "Great" and "Little" are in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam respectively. Both are oil paintings on wood panels.
The paintings depict the construction of the Tower of Babel, which according to the Book of Genesis in the Bible, was a tower built by a unified, monolingual humanity as a mark of their achievement and to prevent them from scattering: "Then they said, 'Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.'" (Genesis 11:4)."
This is our world today. Nothing has changed.
This is any city. This could be New York City or Washington D.C. This has never fallen. Babel is still being built today. Babel is. This is was where the Global Enterprise was at back a few hundreds years ago. The Babel Tower of today is this world built with steel and now digitally online. 20th century radio wave Metropolis burlesque era babel is now online and interactively accessible.
The Tower represents global human civilization.
This tower is only greater today.
Wooden ships have given away to passenger and cargo jets.
Nothing changes. The global Tower of Babel is stronger and evolving into a more diversely conquered entity. Social media and modern politics are examples of today's burning tower of bull-babel. Confused gender fluidity and other media promoted nonsense are also examples of modern babel. Identity politics and other artificial social divisions are always encouraged and exploited.
God does not divide human beings by language. Human beings do,
We divide ourselves. As Human Beings we are encouraged to sort ourselves into various easily managed communities that only speak their own language or understand their own sub-cultural jargon. Examples of this include YouTube community building efforts, celebrity fan clubs, and all sorts of other forms of pop culturally influenced categorizations (like pop-music categories). Babel is the tool of Government and the instrument of the allegorical Roman God of Governmental & Commercial Authority, Saturn the Lord of The Capital City Capitol Dome.
Babel is still under construction.
Babel is still a shipping enterprise.
Allegories of the Sun's Apparent Path
The sun sets in the west and west was the direction of the more recent expansion of western civilization and cultural effort. These images would seem to have less to do with magic and more to do with allegory. The Sun's position in the sky oscillates over the course of the year, the hangman card would seem to represent the T.O. Map and the Sun's oscillating path. The sun of the Death card, setting past the twin towers, or Pillars of Hercules, would seem to represent the sun setting in direction of the "New World". The Tower card is an obvious reference to Babel and to the Crown Banking system, capitol domes and capital cities. The cape clad royalty are the ones who are being punished, at least in art. The Sun card would seem to be allegorical (in some way) of the power of the Natural world itself.
"A T and O map or O-T or T-O map (orbis terrarum, orb or circle of the lands; with the letter T inside an O), is a type of medieval world map, sometimes also called a Beatine map or a Beatus map because one of the earliest known representations of this sort is attributed to Beatus of Liébana, an 8th-century Spanish monk. The map appeared in the prologue to his twelve books of commentaries on the Apocalypse."
The Hanged Man Card seems to represent the T-O Map. The Sun's path over the course of the years changes. It oscillates like a pendulum back and forth. The hanged man has a halo. He seems to be a sun man. This tarot card would seem to really be telling us a different tale that has nothing to do with magical powers and everything to do with the real commercial based history of the world.
The Holy Roman Empire originated (in part) as a sea based Mediterranean Empire.
This sea enterprise followed the setting Sun to the west and discovered the "New World".
The Cult of Royal Persona: The Original Hollywood Celebrity
The original public relations, mass marketed propaganda personae were the members of the royalty itself. These people were the ones interested in theatre, pomp and circumstance. These people set fashion trends and otherwise crafted and manipulated global culture. The effects they had and have on human imagination, lasts to this day.
War Keeps Us Turning The Wheel of Industry As The Elite Grow In Power and Importance
Scripted political assassinations and theatrical war simulation have long been sold are News and historical event in order to keep the mass public believing in the need for the various layers of protective governmental authority we do not need. The leaders of all the major nations have always worked together to act as both the savior of their own so called "nation-states" and as bogeyman nemesis for their cousins to use to keep their own populace docile. If you pay attention you cannot help but notice that "they" just can't seem to be able to figure out that "peace" thing.
Royalty by any other name, still runs the show. The titles and costumes do not matter, the trail of paperwork, contracts, constitutions, and treaties do. The world is one global enterprise and has been run as such for a long time. It is a centuries old criminal banking racket and scheme.
We the People is just a marketing slogan, and "we" get blamed for starting wars we had nothing to do with. We are told what the mass public was thinking as if such sentiments could be quantified beyond tabloid news media headlines. The News and related Hollywood media exists as medium for government. At the highest levels all the major institutions are managed by an elite and global class of university trained minds.
