Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles



The current format of my blog was in part inspired by the “Synchromystic” bloggers that came into my awareness in about 2006 in Particular Jake Kotze's "Brave New World Order" and "The Blob" and Arrowsmiths “Black Dog Star”.

Yesterday I was listening to an interview with Jake Kotze who coined the term “Synchromystic”   and he mentioned how in an episode of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” which was created  prior to 911, the twin towers were attacked and a portal was opened allowed the turtles to travel into another dimension. This synced with Jake’s own narrative  regarded  the    911 / mega ritual /star gate.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have very much been in my mind the last few weeks as they were the theme for my sons 5th Birthday party.

The four turtles who are differentiated by their distinct personalities and coloured headbands are named after the four renaissance painters Leonardo, Michael Angelo, Raphael and Donatello,and I had noted that at least two of these painters names sync with the Arch Archangels Michael Angelo and Raphael  and I have blogged about Angels previously.

Whilst out boating on a lake in the local park this past weekend with my wife and child we saw two turtles basking in the sun.

I have also been conscious of the Chinese mythology around the origin of the “lo shu” "magic square" and the "pa qua" which is often associated with it. which legend has it was discovered on the back of a turtle.

Nuns

I was raised in quite a religious household and realised quite how devout our family were when at the age of about 13 my Aunt decided to become a Nun. This was something she had always wanted but my grandfather had persuaded her to wait a while to be absolutely sure. Around the same time i was getting quite into skateboarding and listening to alot of American hardcore/ skatepunk bands. British punk was very just not quite the same! until my friends and I discovered "the stupids" these guys were young,didn't take themselves too seriously were skaters and they dressed like us (surf/skate wear) and to my delight their first single was entitled "violent nun"
I grew up a bit and mostly forgot about "nuns" apart from the occasional film reminders "Nuns on the run", "Sister Act 1 & 2" until i started doing "kung fu" and my teacher talked about the monastic tradition of the buddhist shaolin and how the monks, who were celebate, cultivated their sexual energy through chi kung. Their kung fu could be used to defend the temple from bandits but the main focus of the discipline was to achieve enlightenment. The female buddhist nuns developed their own styles of kung fu, one of which was Wing Chung.
Things change , "The Stupids" now play Drum and Bass , i still practise a little martial arts but mostly for fun/health and my Aunt is now a Mother Superior !
