Mysteries and Magic

From ancient mystery school teachings to present-day crime solving - they are in their unique way a form of magic. The more intriguing and scientifically based the mystery, the more it speaks to us of - "How was it orchestrated?" Our journey here is based on solving many mysteries - from creation to what lies beyond this illusion that we think of as our future.

Take for example Thursday's latest version of "society going crazy". Here we have footage of a woman in a black Infinity, surrounded by police, who suddenly sped away without anyone shooting out the tires of her car. It makes you wonder why - the mystery within the mystery. United States Capitol shooting incident (2013).

Crime solving, like all of reality, follows patterns which help profilers define criminals and the way things work. So here we go ... On September 16, 2013 we followed the story of the Aaron Alexis the Washington Navy Yard shooter, 34, who grew up in Bushwick, Brooklyn and had a history of mental illness. Two weeks later, we find Miriam Carey, also 34, black, born and raised in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn which borders Bushwick. Miriam was a dental hygienist from Stamford, Connecticut who had previously been hospitalized for postpartum depression.

There will always be another mystery to solve based on physics and math - hence the increase in technologies over the past 100 years to bring humanity into full conscious awareness.

In my ... "I wish this was me moment last night" .... For those whose minds are programmed to see and solve improbable equations - Thursday night on Elementary I learned about a mystery called P versus NP, a major unsolved problem in computer science. Informally, it asks whether every problem whose solution can be quickly verified by a computer can also be quickly solved by a computer. It was introduced in 1971 by Stephen Cook in his seminal paper "The complexity of theorem proving procedures" and is considered by many to be the most important open problem in the field. It is one of the seven Millennium Prize Problems selected by the Clay Mathematics Institute to carry a US $1,000,000 prize for the first correct solution.

New Moon 11° Libra

Moon magic is magic that is associated with the moon. There is a belief common to many cultures that working rituals at the time of different phases of the moon can bring about physical or psychological change or transformation. These rituals have historically occurred on or around the full moon and to a lesser extent the new moon. Such practices are common amongst adherents of neopagan and witchcraft systems such as Wicca.

The moon is feminine linked to creation, the goddess, high priestess or witches. The new moon begins a new cycle to be completed in the full moon six month from its inception.

Lunar magic and witches in Greek and Roman literature, particularly those from Thessaly, were regularly accused of "drawing down the moon" by use of a magic spell. The trick serves to demonstrate their powers (Virgil Eclogues 8.69), to perform a love spell (Suetonius Tiberius 1.8.21) or to extract a magical juice from the moon (Apuleius Metamorphoses 1.3.1). These beliefs would seem to be consistent with many other cultures traditions, for instance; casting of the i ching is often done during the full moon or new moon apex.
